        LARGE ARCHIVE OF TELEVISION TYPESCRIPTS, one SIGNED, with extensive corrections and annotations

      1962 - 1963. Manuscript. Very Good to Near Fine. Exceptional and important collection of five television typescripts: "The Hollywood Story", "Goodbye Is for the Birds", "North Star", "Don't Blow Bugles (The Mafia Man)", and "Only the Young"; most represented in more than one copy and all written for "The Richard Boone Show" [ Boone was best known for starring in "Have Gun Will Travel"]. Some scripts are clean; other copies have extensive additions and deletions by Odets in ink with one script designated as a Work Copy and SIGNED by him. After completing much of the preliminary work for the series Odets died in August 1963. The latest script is dated 17 June 1963. The show was considered one of the best dramatic programs on the air (Robert Blake was in its repertory) but only survived for two seasons after the loss of its executive story editor. Odets gained fame in the 1930s for two plays: WAITING FOR LEFTY and AWAKE AND SING. Though he wrote other plays, including GOLDEN BOY and THE COUNTRY GIRL, he turned to Hollywood in the 1940s as both a writer and director (NONE BUT THE LONELY HEART, one of Cary Grant's best performances) and was investigated by Congress for Communist ties in the 1950s. He had numerous affairs with such actresses as Frances Farmer and Fay Wray. Odets was the inspiration for the title character in the Coen Brothers film BARTON FINK (1991). Extraordinary collection of early television scripts by one of its best early writers with the many corrections revealing much about the process of creating fine television drama.

        I Vangeli Secondo Matteo, Marco, Luca, Giovanni

      Officina Bodoni (Verona: Officina Bodoni, 1963). Quarto. (350)pp. One of 275 copies printed in Italian. Wood-engraved title page by Reynolds Stone and 114 woodcuts from the Epistole et Evangelii (1495), newly cut by Bruno Bramanti and Italo Zetti. Mardersteig conjectured that the series of woodcuts that graced one of the "rarest and most beautiful incunables illustrated with woodcuts" was the work of the Renaissance painter, Bartolomeo di Giovanni. In keeping with the typographical tenets of the Officina Bodoni, this was the third edition of the Gospels produced by Mardersteig: the first was the English version, appearing in 1962, followed by a version in Latin. The present copy bears a presentation inscription from Pope Paul VI, dated 9 March, 1968, to Virgilio Ferrari, who served as mayor of Milan from 1951 to 1961. Ferrari has the distinction of having been the longest-serving Milanese mayor of the twentieth century, and he oversaw much of that city's post-World War II modernization. Before he became Paul VI, Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini was the Archbishop of Milan from 1953 to 1963, and the second man to ascend to the Papacy from this position. As Pope, Paul VI is best remembered for the completion of the Second Vatican Council, begun by his predecessor John XXIII, in addition to the encyclical on the Regulation of Birth, which was published just four months after the date of the present inscription. Few small surface scuffs, very slight toning to spine ends, else very fine in publisher's full green oasis morocco with ornamentation and titling in gilt on front cover, titling in gilt on spine. Housed in the original morocco-trimmed cloth slipcase. T.e.g.
