        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.

        Immediately before President Kennedy’s “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech at Berlin City Hall in 1963, his solemn visit to the Berlin Wall at Checkpoint Charlie is captured by award-winning UPI photographer James K.W. Atherton in this oversize, original signed photograph. Photo measures 19” X 15.5”

      Sepia-toned Photograph Signed, “James K.W. Atherton”, image size 19” X 15.5”, affixed to 16” X 20” heavy board, signed along the left margin of the mounting. Berlin, noon, Wednesday, June 26, 1963, President Kennedy stands on the platform at Checkpoint Charlie and looks at the dilapidated landscape across the Berlin Wall as his entourage stands below, their eyes and cameras fixed on him. Light silvering along the lower edge of the photograph and minor wear along the edges of the heavy board. In fine condition with a dark, clear Atherton signature.In the June 27, 1963 New York Times, this photograph was printed with the caption, “A VIEW OVER THE WALL: President Kennedy gets his first look into East Berlin across the wall erected by East Germans. Earlier, his plan to look across at the Brandenburg Gate was blocked by cloths hung in the gate’s arches.”Following Kennedy’s visit to Checkpoint Charlie, he delivered the speech now seen as a turning point in the Cold War, a speech that boosted the morale of the West Germans and gave a strong defiant message to the Soviet Union. “…There are many people in the world who really don’t understand…what is the great issue between the free world and the Communist world. Let them come to Berlin. There are some who say that Communism is the wave of the future. Let them come to Berlin. And there are some who say in Europe and elsewhere ‘we can work with the Communists.’ Let them come to Berlin. And there are even a few who say that it’s true that Communism is an evil system but it permits us to make economic progress. Let them come to Berlin… All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin, and therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words, “Ich bin ein Berliner.”Award-winning veteran news photographer, James K.W. Atherton was a staff news photographer in Washington, D.C. for over 40 years. For 20 years, he was a staffer for the wires at United Press International (UPI), covering every U.S. President from Harry Truman to Richard Nixon as well as the major events of the day, such as the McCarthy hearings, the 1963 March on Washington, John Kennedy’s funeral, and the first seven space launches. In 1970 he became a staff photographer and picture editor for The Washington Post. Following his award-winning photo coverage of the Watergate hearings, he continued to cover Capitol Hill through the Iran-Contra hearings. He retired in 1990.

        The Lord of the Rings - Original 1963 UK Deluxe Set, with Original Pauline Baynes Triptych Slipcase

      London: Allen & Unwin, 1963. 1st Edition. Original Cloth. J.R.R. Tolkien. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The true 1st Edition, Allen and Unwin 1963 Deluxe Edition of the 3 volumes of the Lord of the Rings, comprised of "The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", and "The Return of the King". This set is bound in the original Black Buckram cloth with gilt titles, author and publisher to the spines of each volume. A slight bit of loss to the gilt title on the Return of the King. Otherwise the gilt is still bright. Each volume features Bevel-Edged boards, gilded page edges, and original silk bookmark sewn in. The books are in Very Good Plus condition, with a few marks and some rubbing to the gilded edges, no writing or inscriptions in any of the books. One tiny scratch/hole in the cloth on The Fellowship, right at the notch in the slipcase, very likely from pulling the book out of the slipcase. The textblock is clean and unmarked, with a very tight binding. The spine of the Two Towers is a matching black color, not the lighter or stretched version that is a common flaw with this edition. Seems to only occur with the Two Towers, and never the other two books. The books are housed in the very scarce original publishers slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes color "Triptych" artwork. This case has one bumped corner, and a little rubbing to the corners as is often found. Clean and bright, with a couple of corner splits neatly repaired. One of the nicest sets overall I've run across in years. The scarcest of all the original Allen & Unwin 1st Editions, as well as the Houghton Mifflin issues. According to publishers records, 1000 or less sets produced. Briefly mentioned in the Tolkien bibliography by Hammond and Anderson on page 98. The outside of the slipcase show some superficial rubbing, but is whole & complete, without any major stains or faults. A rare opportunity for this scarce set and the orignal publishers slipcase illustrated by Pauline Baynes. Digital images available upon request. Other Tolkien sets, original and rebound are available. Inquire if interested. A wonderful addition to anyone's Tolkien collection. Very Good Plus / No Jacket, as Issued.
