      London, England: MacGibbon and Kee Limited, 1963. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good+. 304 pp. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Signed by the author Doris Lessing on the title page. Signed by previous owners "Ruth and Joe Slovo" on the front free endpaper. Small Vanguard Booksellers sticker on inside front cover. Vanguard Booksellers was a landmark radical bookstore in Johannesburg run by Trotskyite intellectual Fanny Klenerman from the 1927 until the mid-1970's. During the early 1960's, it was the lively creative hub for political thinkers, activists and writers. It is likely where Ruth First and Joe purchased this copy. Original blue covers with gilt lettering on spine are vibrant and clean with bumping to spine extremities and corners. Surface and edgewear to dust jacket with a closed tear. Dust jacket in protective cover. Ruth First (1925-1982) was an anti-apartheid activist, writer and scholar who was murdered due to her political views and actions. Her husband Joe Slovo (1926-1995) was an anti-apartheid activist, lawyer and a leader in South African revolutionary politics for over four decades. Nobel prizewinning author Doris Lessing (1919- 2013) was raised in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and lived in Cape Town in 1949 working as a journalist and writer. Many of her most important short stories and novels were situated in Africa. Like the Slovos, Doris Lessing was an innovative radical thinker and opposed apartheid. Files released in 2015 revealed that Britain's MI5 spied on Lessing for over two decades due to her early membership with the British Communist Party and sympathy with left-wing writers and activists. Doris Lessing and Ruth First also both shared a literary agent. An early signed first edition by one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century and an outstanding provenance. Offered for sale by Come By Chance Books- a small, family-run bookshop in beautiful Niagara on the Lake.

        [Manuscript]: Andy Griffith: Tarheel in Transition

      , [1963]. [1963]. Typed manuscript. Ten quarto leaves, typed on rectos only. Probably a carbon, but we are not completely certain. Marked "Raw Copy" in pencil on first leaf. Very heavily edited, presumably by the author, as extensive changes have been made in the text, including some cutting-and-pasting. A biographical article about Griffith by Don Freeman, entertainment editor of The San Diego Union. This appeared as one of the featured articles in the January 25th, 1964 issue of The Saturday Evening Post under the title "I think I'm Gaining on Myself." It details Griffith's North Carolina upbringing, and his uneasy transition to Hollywood. At the time of the article, Griffith, who was born in Mt. Airy, North Carolina, was one of America's most popular television actors, nearing the middle of his nine-year run as Sheriff Andy Taylor on The Andy Griffith Show, set in idyllic Mayberry, N.C. .

      Gollancz, 1963 A first edition, first printing published by Gollancz in 1963.

        Cain's Book.

      John Calder 1963 - FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, a few printing smudges to the title-page, pp. 252, crown 8vo, original red boards, backstrip lettered in silver, crease to knocked top corner of upper board, dustjacket a little nicked and chipped and darkened slightly in a couple of places, very good. With a lengthy inscription by the author to the flyleaf: 'For Nancy Bacal – Can I ask you to be careful not to treat this book as "literature"? Whatever else it is, it's not that. Of course, there is a good deal of "fiction" in it, but For example, my publisher's first question when he had read it: "It's great! But are you working on another novel now?" It was as though he hadn't read it at all. Alex. London, March 1963'. The recipient was a Canadian who had come to London to study classical theatre at RADA, where she became involved in various counter-cultural activities - including founding the Black Power movement in London alongside her then partner Michael de Freitas (Michael X/Michael Abdul Malik). She had been introduced to Trocchi by Leonard Cohen - a mutual friend that she had known since childhood, and whose song 'Seems So Long Ago, Nancy' was written for her; at the time of her introduction to Trocchi she was working as an interviewer for CBC (in which capacity she also interviewed the first incarnation of Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones) and making a film about drug use. 'Cain's Book' was first published in New York in 1960, and received positive notices but no widespread attention; upon its UK publication, however, it caused a scandal and was prosecuted for obscenity having been seized in Sheffield as a threat to the morals of the young. Trocchi, well-versed in Situationist practice having been integrally involved with the nascent movement whilst in Paris, saw the furore as an opportunity to promote the book and at the Edinburgh Festival 1964 staged a public burning (with added explosives) that was part protest against and part endorsement of the judgement of the book as incendiary material. Cohen's role in the story goes beyond the merely incidental: between the US and the UK publications of the work, Trocchi had been charged with the capital offence of supplying drugs to a minor in New York - it was Cohen who assisted him in crossing into Canada, from where he made his way back to London, receiving an inadvertent overdose from his charge's largesse for his trouble.

        Strength to Love.

      New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1963. First edition of Martin Luther King Jr.'s second book. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Major Ernest D. Muse With Best Wishes Martin Luther King." Fine in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing and a few small closed tears. Rare and desirable signed and inscribed by Dr. King. Strength to Love was Martin Luther King's first volume of sermons, published the same year in which he penned his Letter from a Birmingham Jail, and joined the historic March on Washington and delivered his famous I have a dream speech. The following year he won the Nobel Peace Prize. King notes in the preface: "In these turbulent days of uncertainty the evils of war and of economic and racial injustice threaten the very survival of the human race. Indeed, we live in a day of grave crisis. The sermons in this volume have the present crisis as their background; and they have been selected for this volume because, in one way or another, they deal with the personal and collective problems that the crisis presents.

        The Benefactor

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1963. First edition of Susan Sontag's first novel, published the year before she achieved widespread literary fame. In this absurdist anti-novel, an ironic commentary on her own education, an idle and privileged Parisian uses the events of his waking life to interpret his dreams: "The bridge which I built between my dream and my daytime occupations was my first taste of an inner life." Sontag has inscribed this copy to prominent political radical and social critic Dwight MacDonald: "for Dwight MacDonald -- / The Benefactor, which originally / I intended to dedicate to Buster / Keaton -- / with warmest regards - / Susan Sontag." The Partisan Review had recently published MacDonald's most famous essay, "Masscult and Midcult," a fervent attack on middlebrow culture in the United States. One year after The Benefactor appeared, The Partisan Review would publish Sontag's own breakout essay, "Notes on 'Camp,'" a celebration of camp as an aesthetic sensibility distinct from traditional categories of high and low, and an implicit challenge to MacDonald's hierarchy. Sontag dedicated The Benefactor to avant-garde Cuban playwright María Irene Fornés, her partner in New York during the 1960s; references to Buster Keaton would later appear in her critical essays. A near-fine copy, with excellent New York Intellectual provenance. Octavo, original black cloth lettered in green and white over black paper boards, green endpapers, top edge stained black, original unclipped pictorial dust jacket lettered in blue and green. Ink presentation inscription from Sontag to Dwight MacDonald on verso of front free endpaper. Light soiling and edgewear to jacket, spine toned, small spot to front free endpaper.

        Barakei = Killed by Roses = Muerto por las rosas.

      Shueisha (Lumen), Tokyo 1963 - Primera edición, edición original, firma manuscrita en papel rojo de seda, por Mishima  y el fotógrafo Eikoh Hosoe. Tirada mundial de 1500 ejemplares (el nuestro núm. 598). Tamaño Gran folio. 43 fotografías en b y n, 4 ilustraciones en papel de Arroz, dos fotografías desplegables. Cuadernillo  grapado impreso con la traducción del texto de Mishima en castellano. Sólo, lógicamente, lo poseen los ejemplares que distribuyó Lumen en España. En este cuaderno la editora Esther Tusquets explica la gran expectación que produjo Barakei= killed by Roses cuando fue presentado en la Feria de Frankfurt. En seguida se propuso adquirir unos cuantos ejemplares para traerlos a España y distribuirlos en Lumen (sin concretar qué cantidad). Son pues estos ejemplares  de Muerte por la Rosas, escasos en edición española, pero es mérito de la editorial Lumen haber presentado algunos de los grandes fotolibros del Siglo XX  en el ámbito hispánico. Éste, Barakei, sin lugar a dudas lo es. (The Photobook: A History/ Parr; Badger 280-281.) El estado del libro es excelente y la impresión es de una suntuosidad rara vez vista en libros de la segunda mitad del Siglo XX. Las tintas y el papel así como la calidad artística de Hosoe como fotógrafo, hacen de este libro, un libro de artista. La encuadernación en tela de dos colores y el interior en perfecto estado, protegido por la funda camisa de editorial en acetato. Lo único reseñable se ve en las ilustraciones de las páginas de arroz que presentan unas manchas amarillentas (posiblemente por la acidez de las colas de la encuadernación). Las fotografías, en perfecto estado, no presentan ningún rastro de ello. Además se conserva  el estuche en cartón de la edición japonesa; con algunas señales de uso y desgaste sobre todo en una de las caras y alguna abolladura. Una pegatina de Lumen fue añadida ¿Muerto por las Rosas¿ así como el libreto grapado rojo arriba mencionado; sobre esa cubierta no sabría decir si ese es el aspecto rojo desvaído de origen o el papel rojo ha sufrido algún percance justo en el centro. En todo caso el libro está completo y en excelente estado y mínimos defectos en los anexos. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        2 Early, Handwritten Neil Simon Letters Signed

      Signed letter. 2 warm, handwritten letters from Neil Simon (both signed "Doc") to a fellow comedy writer. One dated October 1963, the other from the same period if not even earlier. In both cases he's expressing his surprise over the success of his early plays (possibly "Barefoot in the Park", etc.). Both letters have held up very nicely, as have the original envelopes (with his New York addresses at the time prominently featured).
