        One day after the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, Richard Nixon signs a letter thanking a publishing magnate for his compliments on his address at the 1964 Republican National Convention, and encloses a reprint of his Reader's Digest article on Vietnam: "Needed in Vietnam: The Will to Win"

      "Typed Document Signed ?Dick?, on his personal stationery, 1 page, 7.25? x 10.5?. New York, August 3, 1964 to James S. Copley, founder of the Copley Press concerning his recent speech at the 1964 Republican National Convention as well as his thoughts concerning the ""The Will to Win"" in Vietnam. Expected folds, else fine condition. Nixon writes, ""I want you to know how much I appreciated your writing as you did with regard to my speech at the Republican Convention. While I did not speak from a prepared text, I had some reprints made of the transcript in order to fill requests for copies, and I am enclosing one for your file."" Nixon adds in a postscript: ""In view of the fact that Vietnam will probably be one of the major issues in the up-coming campaign, I thought you might also be interested in a reprint of an article which appears in the August issue of Reader's Digest.""The letter is accompanied by Nixon's aforementioned enclosure: a reprint from the August, 1964 issue of Reader?s Digest, ""Needed in Vietnam: The Will to Win"" (8 pages, 5? x 7.5?). Nixon's critique of American policy in Southeast Asia came at a critical juncture. On August 2, 1964 the U.S.S. Maddox engaged three North Vietnamese torpedo boats in the Gulf of Tonkin. The attack resulted in the passage of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution with gave Lyndon Johnson the legal justification for deploying U.S. forces against North Vietnam. Nixon's 1964 address before the Republican National Convention appealed for unity within the G.O.P. Barry Goldwater's nomination in 1964 alienated many moderate Republicans, including most notably Nelson Rockefeller of New York and George Romney of Michigan. Conversely, Nixon, also considered a moderate within the party, actively supported Goldwater's campaign, going as far as securing Dwight D. Eisenhower's valuable endorsement for the Republican nominee. During the fall campaign, Nixon took a leave of absence from his lucrative New York law practice to barnstorm for Goldwater, spending five weeks travelling through thirty-six states. Nixon's support for Goldwater paid off (though not for the Arizona Senator who lost to Lyndon Johnson in one of the most lopsided presidential elections in American history). Soon after Lyndon Johnson's inauguration in January 1965, Goldwater publically praised Nixon's support, despite the fact that the two differed greatly on many policy issues. In 1968, Goldwater would return the favor, actively martialing conservative support behind Nixon's successful presidential bid."

        Manuscript]: The Blind Doe and Her Faun

      1964 - Six drafts plus additional materials for an article that was written for and appeared in the May 5, 1964 issue of *The Saturday Evening Post*. The drafts are various formats (mostly typed) and lengths of pages, respectively 10, 15, 5, 11, 7, and 9 pages. Each of the drafts is edited and corrected, most of them fairly extensively. Apparently a true and autobiographical story, but with the names of the participants changed. While deer hunting the author encounters a blind doe and her fawn. He takes them in tow, and through his employer, the deer is shipped to a specially trained veterinarian for an eye operation. Accompanied by over 50 pages of typed "interrogatories," probably from an editor or fact checker in order to better understand the story, though possible by the author in order to understand his own process. The accompanying material includes two snapshots of the deer. Carousso was a public relations man for a brewery, and was a very prolific author in both non-fiction genres (especially sporting, hunting and fishing) and various genres of fiction including mysteries, horror, suspense, and outdoor adventure. His work appeared frequently in *The Saturday Evening Post* as well as in *Sports Illustrated, Outdoor Life, Dime Detective, Terror Tales, Alfred Hitchcock, Reader's Digest,* etc. Much of his work was anthologized. One of his stories, "The Weapon," was adapted for the screen by William Faulkner and Howard Hawks for their aborted WWII film, *Battle Cry.*

        Dinny Gordon Junior [with] Original Dust Jacket Art

      Philadelphia: Macrae Smith. (1964). Original gouache and pencil cover art for Dinny Gordon Junior by illustrator Evelyn Copeman depicting the winning teen ingenue smiling up at an all-American boy. The image measures approximately 7" x 8.5" (on 13" x 20" artist board). It is accompanied by a clear overlay with the title and author's name affixed, a sheet of tissue paper with various notes for the printer, and additional blank sheet with a warning about handling the original art, once attached to the board by tape but now loose. The art is fine and bright; the other items showing some toning from the tape, along with a few spots and a couple of tears. It is accompanied by a fine third printing of the book in an else fine price-clipped dustwrapper.In the article Dinny Gordon: Proto-Feminist, that appeared in the March 2006 issue of the Journal of American Culture, writer Joyce Litton posits that Anne Emery's most beloved character, Dinny Gordon, who had aspirations of a nontraditional career and delayed marriage, was a transitional character between the portrayal of the 1950s female in family life and the more enlightened feminist of the mid-to-late 1960s. While it's a little hard to tell from the jacket art, this volume has Dinny confronting not only the typical teen problems such as liking two different boys and losing her job as a result of a shoplifting incident, but also confronting the prejudice of her friends when a Jewish family moves into her neighborhood. Take that, Gidget. .

A PRESENTATION COPY FROM ONE OF THE 20TH CENTURY’S MOST FAMOUS MEN OF FINANCE AND BUSINESS TO ONE OF THE CENTURY’S GREAT RENAISSANCE MEN, BUCKMINSTER FULLER, American systems theorist, architect, engineer, author, designer, inventor, and futurist. Rockefeller and Fuller had a long and sometimes hostile association. At the time of this inscription Rockefeller was chairman of Chase Manhattan. Fuller often accused the financial world of Wall Street, and David Rockefeller by name, of downgrading and selling out American Ingenuity. However, from other quotes it is also clear Fuller considered him a genius. If there was animosity between them it is clearly not evident from this inscription, it reads "With deep admiration and warm regards." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
