        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.&

        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.

        Visions of Gerard

      NY: Farrar Straus. (1963). A volume in Kerouac's fictionalized autobiographical series -- the Legend of Duluoz. Inscribed by the author: "To Jamie/ the Angel/ from Jack Kerouac." With a "compliments of the Author" bookplate above the inscription on which someone -- presumably Kerouac -- has typed "who says Hullo Jamie" below the word "Author." Jamie was the son of Kerouac's former college buddy Ed White, who was fictionalized as Tim Gray in On the Road. Ed and Kerouac were introduced by White's roommate, Hal Chase, who also introduced Kerouac to Neal Cassady. Kerouac and Ed kept up a correspondence from 1947, the year after they met, to 1969, the year Kerouac died, exchanging nearly 90 letters and postcards over the course of their friendship. White was apparently the first person Kerouac wrote to in 1949 when his first novel, The Town and the City, was accepted for publication. Glue bleeding through bookplate, not affecting the inscription on the flyleaf; a fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with several short edge tears, reinforced on the verso at the spine heel. A wonderful inscription, reflecting not only a longtime friendship -- and a multigenerational one at this point -- but also Kerouac's innate sweetness. . First Edition. Hardcover.
