        Manuscript Draft of Letter from John Steinbeck to W. F. Vickers

      New York: John Steinbeck, 1963. First edition. None. Very Good +. John Steinbeck's autograph draft of a letter dated August 31, 1963 mentioning his trip to Algeria and giving some thoughts on his meeting with Ben Bella, Algeria's first President (1963-1965). An interesting letter from John Steinbeck to W. F. Vickers of International Harvester's Consumer Relations Department recalling a trip Steinbeck and his wife, Elaine, made to Algeria. After thanking Vicker's for his letter to Steinbeck of January 17, Steinbeck states that he "...often remember that ____ ____ breakfast in Algiers" at which he first had champagne for breakfast. Steinbeck goes on: "I also remember the oyster place and the ____ pilot approach." Steinbeck then mentions having met Ben Bella [a native Algerian who led the rebellion against French colonial rule and became Algeria's first President] when he came to the US and of him writes "...[I] liked him very much. However, in our conversation we didn't go into politics suspect that he is just trying to get a new country started. He is a really nice tough guy -- was a sergeant in the French army you know. Not one of his cabinet is over 30. Isn't that interesting." [Bella described himself as "an Islamist of a "mild and peace loving flavour."] In Very Good + condition, the letter is written, as was Steinbeck's custom, in pencil on a sheet of yellow ruled paper. W. F. Vicker's business card is attached by a staple to the top of the letter. A rather interesting manuscript letter by the Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winning author John Steinbeck from his personal files kept by him in his Manhattan apartment.

        Original Typed Letter Signed from Jean vanden Heuvel to John Steinbeck TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's Original Autograph draft reply

      New York: John Steinbeck and Jean vanden Heuvel, 1963. First edition. stapled sheets. Fine. From John Steinbeck's original files kept by him in his Manhattan Apartment: An original letter typed letter signed from Jean vanden Heuvel and Clay Felker to John Steinbeck about the television show "What's Going on Here?", SIGNED BY JEAN VANDEN HEUVEL and CLAY FELKER, TOGETHER WITH the John Steinbeck's original draft of his reply written, as was his custom, in pencil on a lined sheet of yellow paper measuring approximately 12 1/2 " by 8". The letters are stapled together for filing and each is in Fine condition. [The Producers' letter carries a pencil note at the top made by Steinbeck's Assistant "JB" (Janet Beckman)]. Jean vanden Heuvel and the former Esquire editor, Clay Felker, produced the 1963 satirical sketch comedy about the news of the day titled "What's Going on Here?" staring Roger Bowen, Peter Cook, Barbara Harris, and others. In their letter to John Steinbeck dated May 7, 1963 the Producers ask John Steinbeck to watch the show and to provide them with his reaction to it. In his reply, sent August 13, 1963 - as noted by Janet Beckman at the head of Steinbeck's draft reply, Steinbeck begins "Dear Janet / I had your letter of May 7 / regarding What's going on Here? I saw / it saturday night and again sunday. / I thought it was wonderful. Can't understand / the Tribune review." The Tribune apparently panned the show, and Steinbeck goes on to mention that "We've talked to lots of people and all / loved it.... // Good God! if television could be that / way, I, for one would have some interest / in it." Steinbeck goes on to give only one suggestion for the show and finishes his letter by writing: "Anyway I hope you will do more of / this and soon. And spare no one." Two fine letters from John Steinbeck's personal files, including John Steinbeck's draft letter written entirely in his own hand.

        The Spy Who Came in from the Cold

      Gollancz, 1963. 1st edition. Hardcover. Very fine, with very clean boards and endpapers and pages, no foxing at all, in a very fine dustjacket, absolutely none of the usual fading to the spine, and no wear at all to the extremities. A unique copy, having been signed by the author twice on the title page, in both his real name, David Cornwell, and as John le Carre. The author's best-known novel features in virtually every list of the best books since 1950, including the recent Daily Telegraph's 500 Must-Read Books, ' a marvellously bleak take on the Cold War, showing spies at their morally repugnant worst'. Graham Greene hailed the book as the best spy story he had ever read. Many critics assumed le Carre was spilling the screts of MI6, where he worked, but he has said that the book would never have been published had it been true and that the service passed it for publication on the grounds that it gave away no secrets. Nevertheless, with his third book, le Carre totally altered the style of espionage fiction, and this is an absolutely superb example of his bestselling title.

        Every Building on the Sunset Strip

      Los Angeles: Edward Ruscha. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (with extra folding flap at end) of Edward Ruscha's most famous book; perhaps the greatest example of the new genre of art book that he created. Bound accordion-style as one continuous folding strip extending to 27-feet long. Starting in 1963, with the publication of Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Ruscha began a series of photographic art books that documented ordinary aspects of life in Los Angeles. For Every Building on the Sunset Strip, Ruscha mounted a motorized Nikon to the back of a pick-up truck and photographed every building he passed. The resulting book, with the pictures printed in order and labeled with their street numbers, achieved an effective non-judgemental and almost anthropological record of previously unexplored details and aspects of the urban experience. Ruscha exercised control over each step of the bookmaking process and with the use of inexpensive offset printing, standard paper, and simple, paperback bindings, he created a new genre of art book designed for commercial distributors rather than art galleries. Ruscha's books, which became a staple of Conceptualism, were extremely influential to younger generations of artists. Los Angeles: Edward Ruscha, 1966. Small quarto, original white wrappers, original silver paper-covered slipcase. Light soiling to wrappers, darkening and crease to spine; slipcase with slight edgewear. With stamp of the American distributor, Wittenborn and Company, on title. An outstanding copy of a rare and fragile book.

Fine in an excellent dust jacket showing just light toning. The author's first novel. "Is there any Canadian novel as compelling and as good as at capturing youthful anxieties as J. D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye? Absolutely. . . . Leonard Cohen's first novel, The Favorite Game." [Globe & Mail]. Is there any Canadian novel as compelling and as good as at capturing youthful anxieties as J. D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye? Absolutely. . . . Leonard Cohen's first novel, The Favorite Game" (Globe & Mail). Paul Quarrington said "[t]he Favorite Game is a morally brave book, intimate and unflinching. . . . Leonard Cohen sustains the highest level of poetic craftsmanship throughout," and The Observer added "[h]e is a writer of terrific energy and color, a Rabelaisian comic and a visualizer of memorable scenes." Lastly, Calgary Albertan concluded that "[i]t is the kind of book that becomes a law unto itself, simply because there is nothing with which to compare it.

      New York: Harper and Row, 1963. First Edition. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR, LARRY MCMURTRY. 8vo, publisher’s original cloth, in the original dustjacket. 298pp. A fine copy in like dustjacket, very fresh and attractive. SIGNED COPY OF LARRY MCMURTRY’S SECOND BOOK, every bit as hard to find in collectable condition as his first, HORSEMAN, PASS BY. This copy has been signed boldly on the free-fly by McMurtry in blue ink. The jacket is in what is sometimes called “Second State”, which is actually the same printing as the “first” but with the price clipped off by the publisher and replaced by a small sticker (in some cases a stamp) at $4.95. This was all done prior to the book’s original release date, thus only a very small number of copies can be found with the original $4.50 price intact. “Leaving Cheyenne traces the lives of three West Texas characters as they follow that sundown trail: Gideon Fry, the serious rancher; Johnny McCloud, the free-spirited cowhand; and Molly Taylor, the sensitive woman they both love and who bears them each a son. Tragic circumstances mark the trail but McMurtry's style never turns melodramatic or sentimental.” - modern editorial review.
