She went all over Paris to find the right ingredients for her meals. She had endless specialities, but her chicken dishes were especially magnificent. The secret of her talent was great pains and a remarkable palate."

        Five Volumes of Lectures Given at the Jung Institute Concerning Fairy Tales [later published as An Introduction to the Interpretation of Fairytales]

      Jung Institute [Zurich, Switzerland]: Jung Institute. 1963. A collection of five volumes of lectures on fairy tales given in English by Marie-Luise von Franz, at the Carl Jung Institute between 1956-1963, representing the first editions (they were later collected and edited into Franz's seminal 1970 book An Introduction to the Interpretation of Fairytales). Quartos. 74pp., 85pp., 151pp., 193pp., and 95pp. Quarter cloth stapled with stiff paper wraps and mimeographed sheets. Overall near fine with some bumped corners, sunning, and scattered ink notes. Each volume includes a notation at the top of its first page stating, in slightly varying language: "These Notes are intended as an Aide Memoire to Students who attend the Course and do not constitute a verbatim report. Dr. von Franz has glanced through them briefly but is not responsible for any errors in reporting." As such, the text varies from published versions of these lectures, with some asides and comments directed to her students in Zurich that are not incorporated into later texts. The texts include "The Psychological Meaning or Redemption Motifs in Fairy Tales," "The Problem of the Shadow in Fairy Tales," "Problem of Feminine Psychology in Fairy Tales," "An Introduction to the Psychology of Fairy Tales," and "The Individuation Process in Fairy Tales." A scarce set of first editions of these highly influential Franz lectures which paved the way for the later writings of Bruno Bettelheim and today's prevalent use of fairy tale motifs in adult fiction and entertainment. Further details available upon request. .

A book by photojournalist Kazuo Kenmochi, likely his first, that details drug culture in Japan in the early 60s: from production, to distribution, addiction and finally incarceration. The images are crisp, stark, frightening and intimate, all traits one might associate with Larry Clark or Nan Goldin, yet Kenmochi's intention was pure documentary.

Pair of original posters for benefits hosted by The Living Theatre including "A Benefit for Kulchur Magazine" (1961) and "For the Benefit of LeRoi Jones" (1963) advertising poetry readings of Amiri Baraka (née LeRoi Jones, who also served as music editor for "Kulchur"), Allen Ginsberg, Joel Oppenheimer, and Frank O'Hara.& & Founded in 1947, The Living Theatre, the oldest active experimental theatre group in the United States, laid the foundation for a robust underground art scene in the New York City. After more than a decade of successful original radical stage productions and adaptations of works by playwrights such as Bertold Brecht and Gertrud Stein, founders Judith Malina and Julian Beck used their space and resources for the nourishment of the arts more broadly, hosting experimental film screenings and literary benefits.& & Featured in this collection are two such benefits. One is for the assistance of the nascent "Kulchur Magazine," the literary criticism journal of the New American Poetry group, which published quarterlies from 1960 to 1965 and featured works by William S. Burroughs, Paul Bowles, and Allen Ginsberg. The other is for LeRoi Jones and his wife, both of whom were ill and unable to work, while his landmark work of ethnomusicology "Blues People" (Morrow, 1963) and novel "The System of Dante's Hell" (Grove, 1965) were still forthcoming.& & Posters 8 x 10.5 inches to 8.5 x 14 inches. "A Benefit for Kulchur Magazine" Very Good with one corner toned and two half-inch closed tears. "For the Benefit of LeRoi Jones" Near Fine with minimal soiling.

        Autograph Draft Letter Regarding his Nobel Acceptance Speech

      c. 1963/1964. Steinbeck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962 and delivered his acceptance speech in Stockholm on December 10, 1962, two months after the Cuban missile crisis. Steinbeck, with a nod to Alfred Nobel, weapons maker and inventor of dynamite, used his acceptance speech to address the responsibilities of the makers of literature in a time of a "forward surge in our knowledge and manipulation of certain dangerous factors in the physical world" when "we have usurped many of the powers we once ascribed to God...Having taken Godlike power, we must seek in ourselves for the responsibility and the wisdom we once prayed some deity might have." This draft letter, written to a Mr. Macy, concerns the translation of the Nobel speech into Russian (specifically the suitability of using Russian for the satellite countries such as Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary; the possibility of a bilingual edition); the potential benefit of distributing copies to foreign service personnel for them to distribute to "young intellectuals"; and the "enormous answering work" of responding to letters received after his Nobel Prize. Approximately 225 words, handwritten on one yellow-lined legal sheet, likely, as was his custom, given to his secretary to type and therefore unsigned, leaving off at "Yours." A letter showing not only Steinbeck's involvement in the distribution of his work, but particularly in the distribution of it in a part of the world both in which he had traveled and about which he had written (A Russian Journal, 1948); where he would travel again in 1963 as part of a cultural exchange program; and which he had addressed, without naming, in his speech. Near fine. .

        Collection of cinema material relating to William Golding's "Lord of the Flies

      London: Two Arts Limited, 1963. A collection of cinema material, 15 pieces in all, relating to the 1963 British film, based on the 1954 novel by William Golding. Included are the exceptionally rare original British screenplay by Peter Shaffer, a quite striking Polish poster, a British quad poster (on a double bill with "Comedy Man," as issued), the US half sheet, two French reissue posters, and a black and white theatrical photo from the original US release. & & The story concerns a group of British schoolboys stranded on a desert island who decide to formally govern themselves, with disastrous results. The film was shot entirely in Puerto Rico at Aguadilla, El Yunque, and on the island of Vieques, between April and August of 1961. Most of the boys in the cast had not read the book, and director Peter Brook decided on a unique approach, wherein he would allow the boys to improvise their dialogue given a particular scenario. The horrific progress of the story is faithfully maintained, but this method made for a unique and still deeply affecting film. The script included in this collection, written by playwright Peter Shaffer, is dated August 1959, nearly two years prior to shooting, thus showing the film's conception prior to Brooks' decision to take a different path. Shaffer was not given a credit in the final film.& & The film makes for challenging viewing, originally rated X in the US, and went largely unseen until a recent restoration and release via the Criterion Collection. Nominated for the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1963. Criterion 43.& & All items are Very Good plus to Near Fine condition. Details follow:& & 1.

        SIGNED PERSONAL ADDRESS BOOK of New York Yankees catcher with many names including Jackie Robinson, Yogi Berra, etc

      Hardcover. A few loose or detached pages. Backstrip lacking, shaken, but all there and quite scarce. Small (2-3/4" x 3-3/4") pocket-sized otherwise unremarkable flexible cloth address book but for the fact that it belonged to great New York Yankees catcher Elston Howard who has SIGNED it with his address at the beginning along with another smaller partial signature on the front pastedown. It contains numerous names, phone numbers, and addresses written by Howard including Jackie Robinson, Harry Belafonte, Carmine Basilio, Rocky Colavito, Roy Campanella, Eddie Fisher, Lefty Gomez, Yogi Berra, Ralph Houk, Minnie Minoso, Pee Wee Reese, Bill Skowron, etc., even Yankee Stadium itself. Elston Howard was the first African-American to play for the Yankees, one of the last major league clubs to become integrated. Due to the presence of Yogi Berra behind the plate, Howard played several different positions before he earned a regular job with the Yankees and still managed to be a member of four American League All-Star teams in that time. In 1963 Howard hit a career-high 28 home runs and was voted the American League's Most Valuable Player-- the first black player to win the honor. An excellent fielder and hitter, the nine-time All Star seemed to have only one weakness: speed. His manager Casey Stengel reportedly said of Howard: "I finally get a black guy and they give me the only one who can't run." Howard died in 1980 at the ago of 50.

      G. P. Putnam's Sons (1963)., New York: - First edition. INSCRIBED "To Lub / With love / - that old habit - / Norman / Nov 1963." Mailer mentions sending this copy to Lubell-Naiman in a letter printed in "Norman Mailer's Letters." Spine lettering faded otherwise very good in nice dust jacket with red spine lettering faded to white. Adeline Lubell-Naiman was the editor instrumental in the eventual publication of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD. In 1946, while an editor at Little, Brown, Lubell-Naiman convinced Mailer to submit the first 200 pages of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD, which she talked up to her publisher. Unfortunately, she was also the one to suggest historian and critic Bernard DeVoto read the manuscript--he recommended not publishing. But Mailer submitted it to Rinehart, who published the book in 1948. Over the years, Lubell-Naiman remained close friends with Mailer and his wives. In the summer of 1968 she even played the role of "Adeline McCarthy," a president of a women's college in Mailer's film "Maidstone" (Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center website).
