        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.

From wikipedia "The New York Review was founded by Robert B. Silvers and Barbara Epstein, together with publisher A. Whitney Ellsworth and writer Elizabeth Hardwick, and with the backing of Barbara's husband Jason Epstein, a vice president at Random House and editor of Viking Books. Hardwick had published an essay in Harpers in 1959 called "The Decline of Book Reviewing", a scornful look at the failure of criticism in reviews of the time that inspired Silvers and Epstein. During the New York printing strike of 1963, when the New York Times had ceased publication, the founders of The Review seized the opportunity to establish a vigorous book review. They knew that book publishers would advertise their books in the new publication, since they had no other outlet for promoting new books. The first idea was to make Norman Podhoretz editor, but he chose to stay at Commentary magazine. The group then turned to Silvers, a friend of Jason Epstein's, who had been an editor at The Paris Review and was then at Harper's. Barbara Epstein had become known as the editor at Doubleday of Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl, among other books, and then worked at Dutton, McGraw-Hill and The Partisan Review. The first issue of the Review was published on February 1, 1963 and sold out. Silvers says of the editors' philosophy, "We felt you had to have a political analysis of the nature of power in America - who had it, who was affected". The editors also "had one thing in common, it was this feeling of intense admiration for wonderful writers". Early issues included articles by such writers as Hardwick, Hannah Arendt, W. H. Auden, Saul Bellow, John Berryman, Truman Capote, Paul Goodman, Lillian Hellman, Irving Howe, Alfred Kazin, Robert Lowell, Dwight Macdonald, Norman Mailer, Mary McCarthy, Norman Podhoretz, Philip Rahv, Susan Sontag, William Styron, Gore Vidal, Robert Penn Warren and Edmund Wilson. The Review pointedly published interviews with political dissidents, including Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Andrei Sakharov and Václav Havel." Highlights include the incendiary friendship-ending letters between Nabokov and Edmund Wilson, satirical drawings by Gorey and Levine, and many of the greatest writers of the second half of the 20th century actively engaged in critical, literary and political discourse, with a healthy admixture of art criticism. Plus, a Fine/Fine copy of The First Anthology - 30 Years of The New York Review of Books, 1963-1993, edited by Robert B. Silvers, Barbara Epstein, and Rea S. Hederman, c.1993, First Edition, 345pp.

        Draft Manuscript Letter from John Steinbeck to Robert Sargent Shriver, Jr. recommending Ritchie Lovejoy's daughter for acceptance into the Peace Corps, TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's file copy of the typed letter to Shriver, TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's handwritten suggestions respecting the Peace Corps application. [Cannery Row; Sweet Thursday; Between Pacific Tides]

      New York: John Steinbeck, 1963 . First edition. Staplebound. Fine. From John Steinbeck's personal files kept by him in his Manhattan apartment: John Steinbeck's handwritten instructions for Jennifer Page __________'s application to the Peace Corps; TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's autograph manuscript letter to Robert Sargent Shriver, Jr. [who served both in the Kennedy and Johnson Administrations, was a driving force behind the creation of the Peace Corps, Job Corps, and Head Start, served as US Ambassador to France, and was George McGovern's running mate in the 1972 US Presidential election, and then the Director of the Peace Corps], praising the applicant's personal qualities and giving his recommendation of her; TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's file carbon copy of the typed letter to Shriver. Steinbeck begins his comments on the application with "Dear Janet - / Peace Corps application. Such things / are usually more effective if typed___" and going on to give detailed information to be used in completing the application. Steinbeck's application comments occupy the rectos of approximately one and one-fifth sheets of 8" x 12 1/4" yellow ruled paper. After completing his comments, Steinbeck continues on the second sheet with an autograph draft letter to Sargent Shriver beginning as follows: "As one who has followed the development of the Peace / Corps with interest and enthusiasm, it gives me the / greatest pleasure to recommend the applicant, Jennifer / Page _________ with all the vehemence I can bring to / bear." Steinbeck then writes of the difficulties Jennifer has endured, beginning with the death of his friend, Jennifer's father ("...my old / friend and a good newspaper man..."), when Jennifer was quite young. He then praises her honesty and, calling her "...one of the best girls I have ever known", he goes on to write "I am / glad she is applying for the Peace Corps and in my opin- / ion, it is a compliment to that organization that she / wants to belong to it. You may depend absolutely on her / carrying out what she sets out to do." Finally, after concluding the draft of his letter, Steinbeck adds some further instructions for completing the application. Altogether, the draft of the letter to Sargent Shriver and Steinbeck's instructions for completion of the Peace Corps application cover the rectos of nearly 3 yellow sheets of ruled paper in Fine condition, and the carbon copy of the typed letter from John Steinbeck to Sargent Shriver, which occupies nearly a full sheet of letter-sized paper, is in Very Good + condition. Jennifer's father, who Steinbeck describes as his "old friend and a good newspaper man", was Alston "Ritchie" Lovejoy, an author, poet, artist, illustrator, and journalist, who, with his wife, Tal Lovejoy (born Natalya "Tal" Kashevaroff), was part of John Steinbeck's circle in Monterey, California where Ritchie spent time with Ricketts, Steinbeck, and others at Ricketts' lab at 800 Cannery Row, drinking and talking for hours on end. It was Ritchie Lovejoy to whom Steinbeck gave his $1,000 Pulitzer Prize check, prompting Ritchie and his wife to start a family as they then felt that they could afford to do so. (They named their first child, a son, "John" since Steinbeck's gift had made their starting a family possible.) Ritchie covered the Monterey waterfront for the Monterey Peninsula Herald and, among other things, did the highly-praised illustrations for Ed Ricketts' book "Between Pacific Tides". Ricketts was the model for "Doc" in Steinbeck's "Cannery Row" and "Sweet Thursday", and each of Ritchie and Steinbeck considered Ed Ricketts to be his best friend. Ritchie was in charge of Ed Ricketts' funeral and his family inherited much of Ricketts' personal property. Ritchie Lovejoy, loved by virtually all who knew him, died of brain cancer at age 48. Altogether an excellent set of papers from John Steinbeck's personal files, richly and intimately connected with Steinbeck's personal history and with the Lovejoy family with which Steinbeck was especially close. An absolutely wonderful Steinbeck item.

        Autograph Letter Signed from June Garcia advising John Steinbeck of his dear friend Johnny Garcia's death TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's Autograph Draft of his reply [Travels with Charley; Tortilla Flat]

      Monterey, CA and New York: John Steinbeck and June Garcia, 1963. First edition. Stapled Sheets. Fine. An Original Autograph Letter Signed from June Garcia to John Steinbeck, written on the rectos of two stationary sheets, dated April 16, 1963, addressed from Monroe Street in Monterey California, and beginning "Dear John Steinbeck", TOGETHER WITH the Original Autograph draft response from John Steinbeck to June Garcia dated April, 24, 1963. June Garcia's touching letter begins: "As you see by the inclosed / clipping [not present], our dear Johnny has / gone on. // I wanted you to know that / he enjoyed your book, / "Travels with Charley" very / much. And also the little prestige / that your autographed copy / gave him." She goes on to tell Steinbeck how proud Johnny was of his signed copy of the book during his final illness and how delighted he was when Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize in Literature. She recounts how Johnny "always said 'I will write / to John and thank him when I / get better'. But he never felt any better." She then mentions that the "beautiful medal" that Steinbeck gave to Johnny gave Johnny a great deal of pride and that she, June, gave it to Johnny's son Michael. She concludes her letter stating: "I was disappointed that I did / not have the pleasure of meeting / you while you were here. / But maybe some other time." Steinbeck's draft reply, which would have been typed by his secretary and sent by her, bears the date "4/23/63" written in the upper right corner -- it was her custom to date Steinbeck's yellow sheet drafts with the date on which she mailed the typed reply. The reply address, written in Steinbeck's hand at the top of the sheet reads, "Mrs. John Garcia / 275 Monroe St. Monterey Calif." Filling about 2/3 of the ruled yellow paper Steinbeck used in composing his letters, Steinbeck beginning in the same fashion as did June Garcia, writes: "Dear June Garcia:" and, after thanking her for her letter, writes: "You know of course how / much I valued him as a friend. / He was a very fine gentleman. It / sounds better in Spanish Muy caballero, / qui vine siempre a mia / memoria con dulzura y dignidad. / Dios lo bendiga." (Steinbeck's Spanish essentially means: A real gentleman, he always comes to my memory in sweetness and dignity. God bless him.) After promising to have a prayer said for Johnny in St. Patrick's, Steinbeck writes briefly of Michael, hoping that he will be "as good a / man as his father." A true and old friend of Steinbeck's from his all-important Monterey days, the days that gave birth to some of his greatest works, Johnny Garcia ran bar on Alvarado Street in downtown Monterey, Steinbeck's old drinking haunt that served the dirt-poor paisanos, and other working class locals. In "Travels with Charley", the book which Steinbeck autographed and gave to Johnny Garcia, Steinbeck tells of the visit he made to Johnny Garcia's bar where the two men and other bar patrons drank and reminisced about the old times. The book presents a conversation between Steinbeck and Johnny where Steinbeck asks Johnny about the locals from his old days there, including some wonderful characters from his great novel "Tortilla Flat". The conversation is as follows: “Where are the great ones? Tell me, where's Willie Trip?” “Dead,” Johnny said hollowly. “Where is Pilon, Johnny, Pom Pom, Miz Gragg, Stevie Field?” “Dead, dead, dead,” he echoed. “Ed Ricketts, Whitey's Number One and Two, where's Sonny Boy, Ankle Varney, Jesus Maria Corcoran, Joe Portagee, Shorty Lee, Flora Wood, and that girl who kept spiders in her hat?” “Dead – all dead,” Johnny moaned. “It's like we was in a bucket of ghosts,” said Johnny. A deeply meaningful conversation given that Steinbeck and Johnny were themselves soon to die. A wonderful pair of deeply meaningful autograph letters, born of John Steinbeck's days in Monterey, California, having an intimate relationship with "Travels with Charley" and with "Tortilla Flat", and occasioned by the death of his dear friend, bartender, drinking buddy, and California compatriot.

        Signed Harry Truman 22-word inscription on his 79th birthday program honoring his role in the United Nations Charter ñ presented to his longtime friend and Secretary of the Treasury, John W. Snyder

      Program Signed ìHarry S. Trumanî on the cover, four pages, 8.5î x 11î, front & verso, conjoined cardstock. [Kansas City, Missouri], May 8, 1963. Inscribed by Truman ìTo my good friend and long ñ time associate, Hon. John Snyder / with kindest regards and / deep appreciation of his / support and friendship. / Harry S. Truman.î Fine condition.

The dinner also commemorated the United Nations. Facing an inside page picturing President Truman witnessing the U.S. delegation signing the Charter on June 26, 1945, and separate photographs of the first three U.N. Secretaries-General, is a tribute to the United Nations concluding: ìThe Man from Missouri fired the enthusiasms of the other great world leaders who helped sculpture its form. In June 1945, President Harry S. Trumanís wisdom, dedication and strength rallied the San Francisco Conference for chartering the United Nations with this prayer: ëLet us not fail to grasp this supreme chance to establish a world-wide rule of reason ñ to create an enduring peace under the guidance of God.íî On June 29, 1945, after returning from San Francisco, President Truman, at his temporary suite atop the Hotel Muehlebach, had met with former Kansas Governor and 1936 Republican presidential nominee Alf Landon to discuss bipartisan support for prompt ratification of the Charter. On July 28, 1945, the Senate voted 89-2 for ratification. John W. Snyderís close friendship with Harry S. Truman began in 1928 when Truman was a County Judge. They served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. Harry S. Truman was Colonel of Field Artillery, United States Army Reserve Corps. Lieutenant Colonel John W. Snyder was in Harry Trumanís Missouri Regiment, the 381st Field Artillery, 102nd Division. Snyder had a broad background in banking and business when he was appointed by President Truman as Federal Loan Administrator (1945), Director, Office of Mobilization and Reconversion (1945-1946), and Secretary of the Treasury (1946-1953). Of the 75 Secretaries of the Treasury, from Alexander Hamilton to Timothy Geithner, only six served longer than John W. Snyder.

        Draft Manuscript Letter from John Steinbeck to Robert Sargent Shriver, Jr. recommending Ritchie Lovejoy's daughter for acceptance into the Peace Corps, TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's file copy of the typed letter to Shriver, TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's handwritten suggestions respecting the Peace Corps application. [Cannery Row; Sweet Thursday; Between Pacific Tides]

      New York: John Steinbeck, 1963 . First edition. Staplebound. Fine. From John Steinbeck's personal files kept by him in his Manhattan apartment: John Steinbeck's handwritten instructions for Jennifer Page __________'s application to the Peace Corps; TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's autograph manuscript letter to Robert Sargent Shriver, Jr. [who served both in the Kennedy and Johnson Administrations, was a driving force behind the creation of the Peace Corps, Job Corps, and Head Start, served as US Ambassador to France, and was George McGovern's running mate in the 1972 US Presidential election, and then the Director of the Peace Corps], praising the applicant's personal qualities and giving his recommendation of her; TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's file carbon copy of the typed letter to Shriver. Steinbeck begins his comments on the application with "Dear Janet - / Peace Corps application. Such things / are usually more effective if typed___" and going on to give detailed information to be used in completing the application. Steinbeck's application comments occupy the rectos of approximately one and one-fifth sheets of 8" x 12 1/4" yellow ruled paper. After completing his comments, Steinbeck continues on the second sheet with an autograph draft letter to Sargent Shriver beginning as follows: "As one who has followed the development of the Peace / Corps with interest and enthusiasm, it gives me the / greatest pleasure to recommend the applicant, Jennifer / Page _________ with all the vehemence I can bring to / bear." Steinbeck then writes of the difficulties Jennifer has endured, beginning with the death of his friend, Jennifer's father ("...my old / friend and a good newspaper man..."), when Jennifer was quite young. He then praises her honesty and, calling her "...one of the best girls I have ever known", he goes on to write "I am / glad she is applying for the Peace Corps and in my opin- / ion, it is a compliment to that organization that she / wants to belong to it. You may depend absolutely on her / carrying out what she sets out to do." Finally, after concluding the draft of his letter, Steinbeck adds some further instructions for completing the application. Altogether, the draft of the letter to Sargent Shriver and Steinbeck's instructions for completion of the Peace Corps application cover the rectos of nearly 3 yellow sheets of ruled paper in Fine condition, and the carbon copy of the typed letter from John Steinbeck to Sargent Shriver, which occupies nearly a full sheet of letter-sized paper, is in Very Good + condition. Jennifer's father, who Steinbeck describes as his "old friend and a good newspaper man", was Alston "Ritchie" Lovejoy, an author, poet, artist, illustrator, and journalist, who, with his wife, Tal Lovejoy (born Natalya "Tal" Kashevaroff), was part of John Steinbeck's circle in Monterey, California where Ritchie spent time with Ricketts, Steinbeck, and others at Ricketts' lab at 800 Cannery Row, drinking and talking for hours on end. It was Ritchie Lovejoy to whom Steinbeck gave his $1,000 Pulitzer Prize check, prompting Ritchie and his wife to start a family as they then felt that they could afford to do so. (They named their first child, a son, "John" since Steinbeck's gift had made their starting a family possible.) Ritchie covered the Monterey waterfront for the Monterey Peninsula Herald and, among other things, did the highly-praised illustrations for Ed Ricketts' book "Between Pacific Tides". Ricketts was the model for "Doc" in Steinbeck's "Cannery Row" and "Sweet Thursday", and each of Ritchie and Steinbeck considered Ed Ricketts to be his best friend. Ritchie was in charge of Ed Ricketts' funeral and his family inherited much of Ricketts' personal property. Ritchie Lovejoy, loved by virtually all who knew him, died of brain cancer at age 48. Altogether an excellent set of papers from John Steinbeck's personal files, richly and intimately connected with Steinbeck's personal history and with the Lovejoy family with which Steinbeck was especially close. An absolutely wonderful Steinbeck item.

        Autograph Letter Signed from June Garcia advising John Steinbeck of his dear friend Johnny Garcia's death TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's Autograph Draft of his reply [Travels with Charley; Tortilla Flat]

      Monterey, CA and New York: John Steinbeck and June Garcia, 1963. First edition. Stapled Sheets. Fine. An Original Autograph Letter Signed from June Garcia to John Steinbeck, written on the rectos of two stationary sheets, dated April 16, 1963, addressed from Monroe Street in Monterey California, and beginning "Dear John Steinbeck", TOGETHER WITH the Original Autograph draft response from John Steinbeck to June Garcia dated April, 24, 1963. June Garcia's touching letter begins: "As you see by the inclosed / clipping [not present], our dear Johnny has / gone on. // I wanted you to know that / he enjoyed your book, / "Travels with Charley" very / much. And also the little prestige / that your autographed copy / gave him." She goes on to tell Steinbeck how proud Johnny was of his signed copy of the book during his final illness and how delighted he was when Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize in Literature. She recounts how Johnny "always said 'I will write / to John and thank him when I / get better'. But he never felt any better." She then mentions that the "beautiful medal" that Steinbeck gave to Johnny gave Johnny a great deal of pride and that she, June, gave it to Johnny's son Michael. She concludes her letter stating: "I was disappointed that I did / not have the pleasure of meeting / you while you were here. / But maybe some other time." Steinbeck's draft reply, which would have been typed by his secretary and sent by her, bears the date "4/23/63" written in the upper right corner -- it was her custom to date Steinbeck's yellow sheet drafts with the date on which she mailed the typed reply. The reply address, written in Steinbeck's hand at the top of the sheet reads, "Mrs. John Garcia / 275 Monroe St. Monterey Calif." Filling about 2/3 of the ruled yellow paper Steinbeck used in composing his letters, Steinbeck beginning in the same fashion as did June Garcia, writes: "Dear June Garcia:" and, after thanking her for her letter, writes: "You know of course how / much I valued him as a friend. / He was a very fine gentleman. It / sounds better in Spanish Muy caballero, / qui vine siempre a mia / memoria con dulzura y dignidad. / Dios lo bendiga." (Steinbeck's Spanish essentially means: A real gentleman, he always comes to my memory in sweetness and dignity. God bless him.) After promising to have a prayer said for Johnny in St. Patrick's, Steinbeck writes briefly of Michael, hoping that he will be "as good a / man as his father." A true and old friend of Steinbeck's from his all-important Monterey days, the days that gave birth to some of his greatest works, Johnny Garcia ran bar on Alvarado Street in downtown Monterey, Steinbeck's old drinking haunt that served the dirt-poor paisanos, and other working class locals. In "Travels with Charley", the book which Steinbeck autographed and gave to Johnny Garcia, Steinbeck tells of the visit he made to Johnny Garcia's bar where the two men and other bar patrons drank and reminisced about the old times. The book presents a conversation between Steinbeck and Johnny where Steinbeck asks Johnny about the locals from his old days there, including some wonderful characters from his great novel "Tortilla Flat". The conversation is as follows: “Where are the great ones? Tell me, where's Willie Trip?” “Dead,” Johnny said hollowly. “Where is Pilon, Johnny, Pom Pom, Miz Gragg, Stevie Field?” “Dead, dead, dead,” he echoed. “Ed Ricketts, Whitey's Number One and Two, where's Sonny Boy, Ankle Varney, Jesus Maria Corcoran, Joe Portagee, Shorty Lee, Flora Wood, and that girl who kept spiders in her hat?” “Dead – all dead,” Johnny moaned. “It's like we was in a bucket of ghosts,” said Johnny. A deeply meaningful conversation given that Steinbeck and Johnny were themselves soon to die. A wonderful pair of deeply meaningful autograph letters, born of John Steinbeck's days in Monterey, California, having an intimate relationship with "Travels with Charley" and with "Tortilla Flat", and occasioned by the death of his dear friend, bartender, drinking buddy, and California compatriot.&

This set is bound in the original Black Buckram cloth with gilt titles, author and publisher to the spines of each volume. The cloth on the Two Towers is somewhat loose, appears the cloth has released from the boards, but cover is still completely intact and shows only minor wrinkling. The textblock is clean and bright. Each volume features Bevel-Edged boards, gilded page edges, and all still have the original silk bookmark sewn in. The books are in Very Good condition, with some marks and rubbing to the spines with some degradation of the gilt stamping on the Fellowship and Return. The Two Towers is still bright and undamaged. The gilded edges of all the books show some rubbing and loss of the gilding. The books have no writing or inscriptions in any of the books. The set of books are housed in a reproduction of the very scarce original publishers slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes color "triptych" artwork. A very scarce set of the original Allen & Unwin 1st Deluxe Editions, less than 1000 sets produced (worldwide). Briefly mentioned in the Tolkien Bibliography by Hammond and Anderson on page 98. An unusual set, very few available for purchase at any time. An opportunity to acquire a set at a reduced price, due to the less than immaculate condition of the exterior. Digital images available upon request. Other Tolkien sets, original and rebound are available. Inquire if interested. A wonderful addition to anyone's Tolkien collection.

        Book of the Hopi

      Viking NY: Viking. (1963). The uncorrected proof copy of this landmark volume relating the worldview of the Hopis, as compiled by Waters from the tales of thirty Hopi elders. A matter of some controversy after the fact -- some people have questioned the authenticity of the material or the qualifications of those who provided it -- this book nonetheless was profoundly influential in the Sixties, as one of the seminal volumes bringing some version of a Native American perspective and ethos to the mainstream society. This was a counterculture classic and a staple on college campuses in the late Sixties and early Seventies, thus contributing to the general push toward a more multicultural society, as well as contributing to the increasing consciousness of environmental issues, as the Hopi are depicted as living in closer harmony with the land and the natural world than was the case in mainstream American society. A bit of corner creasing and dust soiling to covers; near fine in ringbound cardstock covers. A scarce proof. . First Edition. Softcover.
