      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.

        Jawbreakers (UNIQUE ASSOCIATION COPY)

      Toronto, Ontario: Contact Press, 1963. Card covers. Near Fine. 54 pp. Light card covers printed in red and black in dust wrapper. 8vo., 1 of 200 copies printed in near-fine condition.Light edgewear and a few creases to covers.

The inscription likely dates from the mid-'60's when "People's Poet" Acorn was living in Vancouver. He used to hang out in a coffee house named The Advance Mattress Company, and was involved politically with the LSA (League for Socialist Action), a Trotskyite organization. Joe Irving was a folk singer and a poet in residence at the LSA offices on Granville Street. Richard Stanley "Red" Lane (1936-1964) was the older brother of poet Patrick Lane and a promising West Coast poet in his own right. Joe Rosenblatt got his early start as a poet with assistance from Acorn, Al Purdy and Earle Birney. Lionel Kearns was a young poet at UBC and a member of the original Tish group.

        Russian Icons

      London: Spring Books, (1963). Small quarto. 40pp., + (48)pp. of color illustrations. This copy was specially bound by Philip Smith in 1964, constituting an example of his earlier work. Bound in full morocco: rose on the upper cover and blue on the lower cover, with the two hues meeting in the center of the spine. Both covers feature an elaborate modern take on the traditional icon, incorporating numerous smaller figures within the larger, main icon. On the upper cover, against a background of black, the icons are formed with teal and burgundy onlays, with extensive gold and black stamping to highlight the figures. Additional onlays in two shades of orange highlight the edges of the design. The lower cover features a similar, simpler version of the motif against a rose background, with onlays in shades of purple, teal, and orange morocco. The figures are outlined with blind tooling. Spine titled in gilt on a free-form black onlay. Patterned paper paste-downs. Signed by Smith on the rear turn-in with his symbol and the date 1964. This copy has been inscribed to "Joan," to whom the accompanying (1)pp. ALs on Smith's stationery is also addressed. The letter thanks Joan for her financial contribution to help fund an upcoming exhibition, and he presents this book as gratitude for her kindness. Smith also mentions his fellow bookbinder, Elizabeth Greenhill, and discusses his own involvement in the field of binding: "I suppose we get used to strange manifestations in bookbinding by being in the thick of it here... But I expect mine are 'horrid' to most people...Of course I am always experimenting and not every one is a 'winner' by any means. Perhaps I have done 3 or 4 really inspired ones. The rest is just practice and experiment. Some are 'sketch bindings'." A prelude to Philip Smith's later and more developed maril style, yet burgeoning with his highly advanced technique of tooling, leather placement, and keen sense for complementary color. Very light rubbing to corners with a slight bow to upper cover (amenable to pressure), some slight fading to spine, else a fine copy of one of this talented binder's earlier creations. A.e.g.

        Aniara [Signed] [Aniara : en revy om människan i tid och rum; Underskrivet] A Review of Man in Time and Space

      London: Hutchinson, 1963. First UK edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/near fine. A Very Good copy of the first UK edition, first printing (some white spotting where it appears that the dye was not absorbed by the cloth, minor edge wear and some corner bumping), in a Near Fine dust jacket (light wear at the outer corners, age toning to the white flaps), SIGNED BY HARRY MARTINSON on the title page; an epic poetic cycle about a spaceship, the "Aniara", that escapes from an Earth polluted by the nuclear explosions of a great and ongoing war and heads to Mars with 8,000 colonists. The Aniara (a name derived from the ancient Greek work for "sad or "despairing") is unexpectedly diverted from its destination, and then heads irretrievably into the void. In the Poem, Martinson examines humanity through the cults and sects that develop among the passengers and the ways in which the travelers, with no destination and surrounded by the vast emptiness of Space, deal with their isolation. Martinson won the 1974 Nobel Prize in Literature for "writings that catch the dewdrop and reflect the cosmos". "Aniara", perhaps, Martinson's most famous work, was quite well received. Prominent Science fiction writer Theodore Sturgeon (who famously stated that ninety percent of all Science Fiction is "crud") proclaimed respecting Aniara that: "Martinson's achievement here is an inexpressible, immeasurable sadness. [It] transcends panic and terror and even despair [and] leaves you in the quiet immensities, with the feeling that you have spent time, and have been permanently tinted, by and with an impersonal larger-than-God force." (The 1974 prize was divided equally between Martinson and his co-winner Eyvind Johnson and evoked controversy as both men were then members of the Swedish Academy. Furthermore, Graham Greene, Saul Bellow, and Vladimir Nabokov were the other candidates that year and many expected that one of them would win the Prize.) Only a few of Martinson's works have been translated to English. Signed copies of his works in any language, even in his native tongue are quite uncommon, and signed copies of them translated into English are hen's teeth. All in all, a Very Good + copy of what many consider to be his greatest work, SIGNED BY HARRY MARTINSON. RARE.

        A Cold Sunday Afternoon in Baltimore" (Original Manuscript, with holograph corrections)

      December 12, 1963. Original corrected typescript for a story by Lewis H. Lapham that ultimately appeared (in a revised form) in the March 14, 1964 issue of The Saturday Evening Post. This early version is titled "A Cold Sunday Afternoon in Baltimore." In this piece, Lapham conducts a dedicated troll through the burlesque houses of Baltimore one day in the winter of 1963. The published article was titled, "Whatever Happened to Burlesque?" and was expanded to include visits to burlesque houses throughout Maryland and Pennsylvania. & & Lapham later served as editor of Harper's Magazine from 1971 to 2006, and is largely responsible for what became the magazine's modern look, which caused it to gain prominence in that 30-year-period. He introduced many signature features of the magazine, most notably the famed "Harper's Index." & & 18 non-numbered pages, bound with a paper clip. With profuse holograph corrections on every page by the author, the piece details the nature of the houses themselves (and their odd uses during non-burlesque hours), the strippers and dancers, the customers (nearly all men, "all in overcoats"), the owners, and the onlookers. A wonderful piece of period Baltimoreana from one of the best essayists of his generation. Very Good or better condition. In a custom quarter-leather clamshell box.

        Spy Who Came in from the Cold, The

      London: Victor Gollancz, 1963. First Impression. Hardcover. Fine-/Fine. A truly superior first printing of "the best spy novel I've ever read" (Graham Greene), with the rare Book Society belly-band still intact. Small 8vo; 222pp. Publisher's pale blue cloth, the spine lettered gilt, in a scarlet, price-clipped dust jacket printed. Just about Fine, with only a thin line of fading to the top edge of both boards and a previous owner's neat signature to the front fly leaf. Internally, bright and fresh, the text block square, in a Fine, remarkably vibrant jacket, with barely a trace of the usual fading to the spine panel and the yellow belly-band practically as crisp as the day it was issued. Preserved in a blue cloth-covered sleeve. In the early 1960s, when Le Carre's masterwork appeared, the popular spy novel presented a melange of "fantasy, farce, and fanatic nationalism; the genre's most successful practitioner was Ian Fleming; and the preeminent spy was the whorish, amoral James Bond." By contrast, Le Carre's protagonist, George Smiley, is a short, fat scholar of German poetry too weak-spined to resist continual pleas from both his unfaithful wife and the intelligence service he loves but questions. 'Spy' also created a new hero, Alec Leamas, who denigrates spy fiction's conventions by angrily evaluating espionage's capacity to betray the souls of its agents. . . . Far from being “priests, saints, martyrs,” he recognizes that spies are “vain fools, traitors too, yes; pansies, sadists and drunkards, people who play cowboys and Indians to brighten their rotten lives” and who exist solely that “the great moronic mass [. . .] can sleep soundly in their beds at night.” (adapted from the Literary Encyclopedia) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.&
