        Where The Wild Things Are

      [New York]: Harper and Row 1963 - Illustrated by the author. First edition, first printing, with the Library of Congress number 63-21253; in a first issue dust jacket, priced $3.50, with no mention of the Caldecott award, with codes 40-80 and 1163, three blurbs each to the front and back panels. Inscribed by Sendak to book designer Janet Anderson on the half-title: "For Janet Anderson / Maurice Sendak / 4/15/82". Publisher's pictorial white boards and gray cloth, illustrated with Sendak's wraparound drawing of a wild thing, his habitat, and Max's boat, lettered in black, pictorial endpapers; original pictorial dust jacket illustrated after the binding. Near fine, with some minor wear from a removed bookplate to the front pastedown, bright boards, clean pages; unclipped dust jacket, with some light toning to the spine and panel edges, a few minor nicks to the spine ends, short closed tear to the top edge of the front panel (not affecting the title lettering), a few faint smudges to the otherwise bright panels. Overall, a very attractive and clean copy, with the Newcomb Hall Bookstore of University of Virginia's autograph slip laid in. Hanrahan A58. The winner of the 1964 Caldecott Medal, Where the Wild Things Are is Maurice Sendak's iconic children's book about a young boy who is sent to bed without supper and imagines himself in a fantasy jungle world where he is the king of the ferocious "wild things." A very personal book, the story is based on Sendak's childhood; the idea of "wild things" came from the Yiddish term "vilde chaya" or "wild animal" that was popular with his mother, the wild things themselves were based on his aunts and uncles, and the experience of being sent to bed without supper for being a "vilde chaya" was one that Sendak knew well. Although the book was initially criticized for its dark undertones, Sendak's keen ability to connect with the emotions and dreams experienced by children worldwide, paired with his exquisite illustrations, make this book a timeless classic.

Mit den Essays zu verschiedenen Aspekten der Haggadah des Kunstwissenschaftlers Julius von Schlosser und David Heinrich Müller, sowie einer Abhandlung über die jüdischen Illustratoren und Illustrationen von David Kaufmann. - Zur Neuausgabe von 1963 schrieb Cecil Roth im Vorwort: "The superb medieval codex known as the Sarajevo Haggadah is certainly the most famous of Hebrew illuminated manuscripts: it is among the most beautiful: it is perhaps the most important. Its recorded history goes back only some seventy years. One day in 1894......a child in Sarajevo came to the Jewish communal infant-school bearing an old Hebrew service book under his arm. His father had recently died leaving the family in straitened circumstances and they needed to realise what was possible from the sale of the volume ...... it passed to the Bosnian National Museum. The discovery soon attracted the attention of the eminent scholars and art-historians of Vienna. ........A ..... magnifient publication was issued before long, devoted to the description and consideration of this newly-found treasure. This was the product of collaboration between the Jewish liturgical expert Heinrich Muller and the non-Jewish art-historian Julius von Schlosser, their own work being supplemented by a most impoprtant excursus on medieval Jewish illuminated manuscripts generally, by the Budapest scholar-collector David Kaufmann, the only person who had hitherto studied the subject systematically". (Cecil Roth bezieht sich auf die hier vorliegende Ausgabe). - Mit Exlibris des Schweizer Altorientalisten Karl Marti (1855-1925). - Einbandkanten etwas bestoßen, Lederrücken etwas beschabt. Vortitel mit kleinem Namenszug.

        Cuba and the United States

      New York: International Review Service. Very Good. 1963. Paperback. Blue card covers show some general wear, light soil and some creasing, extending to back pages ; Tight solid books. These publications are bound together with a ribbon like material ; 163 pages; Both volumes of the Cuba and the United States series are included; Cuba and the United States; Vol. 1 Record of Revolution, USSR-China, UN and OAS Action (published in 1960) Vol. 2 Bay of Pigs, October Crisis, Khrushchev-Kennedy, UN, OAS Action. These books appear to be sponsored by the United Nations. Volume one, published in 1960, is an analysis of the rise of Fidel Castro and his followers, the reactions of the Organization of American States, the legal repercussions with regard to the Monroe Doctrine and the relations with the Latin American countries as well as the US embargo on exports to Cuba, which exists to this day. Volume 2 contains a brief analysis of the events and repercussions in Volume one and expands to include the events through to mid-1963. In that period the US, under John F. Kennedy, attempted to depose Castro as evidenced by the disastrous 'Bay of Pigs' attack. Later, the whole world held its breath, fearing a nuclear war between the US and the USSR when the US navy was instructed to blockade Cuba after evidence of a buildup of Russian nuclear weapons became evident to the US intelligence services. The 'October Crisis' which pitted JFK against Krushchev in a battle of wits is analysed as well as the actions of the UN and other countries which sided with Cuba. Also present are communications between the interested parties - JFK, Krushchev and U Thant, Secretary General of the United Nations . These books are scarce, available in libraries but none appear for sale in the major databases. .

      Tekli Film Productions / Animated Motion Pictures, London 1963 - Final shooting script for the 1963 film, "The Yellow Teddybears," here under both that title and the film's working title, "The Yellow Golliwog," and released in the US as "Gutter Girls."

Director Robert Hartford-Davis' working copy, with his holograph ink and penciled notations, deletions, and drawings throughout.

Red titled wrappers with title window, single call sheet dated April 5, 1963, both in a custom green cloth spring back binder with the director's initials ("RHD"), the film's final title ("The Yellow Teddybears") and the production company ("Tekli Film Productions Ltd") embossed in yellow on the front board.

The textblocks are clean and unmarked, with a very tight binding. The spines of the books are all a black color, the Two Towers a bit lighter in color, a common fault with these sets. The books are housed in the very scarce original publishers slipcase featuring the Pauline Baynes color "Triptych" artwork.

Briefly mentioned in the Tolkien bibliography by Hammond and Anderson on page 98.

        A Man and Two Women (RUTH FIRST AND JOE SLOVO'S COPY WITH THEIR SIGNATURE AND DORIS LESSING'S)

      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.

        Nelson's Own Book of Lonesome Monsters

      Bernard Geis, New York 1963 - The first printing of this acclaimed anthology, published by Bernard Geis Associates in 1963. The book itself hovers between fine and near fine, erring always on the side of caution therefore, we assess it as near fine. The price clipped dust jacket is very good with some wear and a few short tears to the front panel and wear to spinal extremities. This copy has been signed by both Joseph Heller and Saul Bellow. Heller contributes ' World Full of Great Cities ' and Bellow's inclusion is ' Address by Gooley MacDowell to the Hasbeens Club of Chicago.' The anthology also contains the hardcover publication of Thomas Pynchon's Entropy, and The House of the 100 Grass Fires by Nelson Algren. Other contributors include Terry Southern, and the much under appreciated 'Among the Dangs' by George P. Elliott. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
