        Killer in the Rain

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1964. First edition. Fine/Fine. A Fine copy in like dust jacket. A lovely copy of the book without wear in a bright, fresh dust jacket with pinpoint wear at the lower spine, otherwise flawless. This collection of Raymond Chandler short stories from the 30s and early 40s, many from the famed Black Mask magazine, was released after his death. In fact, Chandler did not want the collection published during his lifetime because he had re-used many elements of these stories in his longer novels. In addition to the titular story, the collection includes tales such as "The Man Who Liked Dogs", parts of which were featured in "Farewell, My Lovely," and "The Curtain," which was re-purposed in "The Big Sleep" and "The Long Goodbye." "Raymond Chandler's pulp novelettes [stand high above the rest of the season], to some extent "cannibalized" in his novels but still important in their own right." (Contemporary New York Times review). Fine in Fine. dust jacket.

      Putnam, New York 1964 - Uncommon review copy with original letter from GP Putnam Publicity Director dated 8/21/64 extolling the book, and a seperate insert dated 9/23/64.

Pages are clean and white and crisp, as is the binding. Dust jacket has light edgewear and a 3/4" closed tear to front top. A very nice copy of this book. Not price clipped, shows $4.95 on inside flap. Heinlein's grimmest book by far. Written near the heighth of the atomic war fear. Farnham builds a fallout shelter and when the alarms go off the family and a friend hide in the shelter, seal it, and feel a strange distortion and the solid concrete shelter slides DOWN. When they open the hatch, it's resting on a hillside thousands of years in the future. White people are all slaves or Aborigenes. Black people rule small underground kingdoms where hydroponics supply the only available food, they are intelligent, elegant, high tech, and cannibals. Farnham survives, finds romance, and even a sympathetic Ruler who sends him back in time with his mate rather then eat him. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [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. .

        Hans Sachs, Werke. Herausgegeben von Adelbert von Keller [ab Band 13 zusammen mit Edmund Goetze; ab Band 15 herausgegeben von Edmund Goetze]. - Bände 1-26 sowie 1 alphabetischer Registerband. - Reprint.

      Hildesheim: Georg Olms Verlagsbuchhandlung 1964-1982.. Mit dem später erschienenen Registerband insgesamt 27 Bände (vollständig). Reprografischer Nachdruck der Ausgabe Stuttgart 1870-1908 (Bibliothek des Literarischen Vereins Band 102-250). 8° (17,5 - 22,5 cm). Orig.-Leinenbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf braunen -schildern. [Hardcover / fest gebunden].. Hans Sachs (1494-1576) war ein Nürnberger Spruchdichter, Meistersinger und Dramatiker. Vor allem seine Tätigkeit als Meistersinger machte ihn bei seinen Zeitgenossen bekannt. "Bis 1567 verfaßte er nahezu 4300 Meisterlieder, etwa die Hälfte davon geistliche. [...] Die Produktion von fast 130 Komödien und Tragödien begann 1527 mit dem Trauerspiel "Lucretia", das in Kürze und Gestaltung dem Fastnachtspiel ähnlich ist und eines von deren zentralen Themen, Geschlechterverhältnis und Sexualmoral, aufgreift. Im Anschluß an die etwa gleichzeitig aufkommenden lateinischen Schuldramen erhielten die Schauspiele später Akteinteilung und deutlichere szenische Gliederung. Doch bleiben zwischen dramatisch durchgestalteten Szenen Elemente eines Erzählens mit verteilten Rollen, Zeitsprünge werden in Kauf genommen. Wie bei vielen protestantischen Dramatikern der Zeit galt Sach's Augenmerk biblischen, v. a. alttestamentlichen Stoffen. [...] Während die Meisterlieder nur handschriftlich weitergegeben wurden, konnten die übrigen Texte als Einzeldrucke verbreitet werden. Die Masse dieser Texte wurde allerdings erst allgemein zugänglich, seit 1558-79 fünf Bände der Nürnberger Folio-Ausgabe erschienen, die ersten drei in mehreren Auflagen. [...] Bei seinem Tod war Sachs in ganz Deutschland berühmt, in der Barockzeit dagegen verpönt. Wieland, Goethe und die Romantiker entdeckten ihn neu." (Quelle: ADB 30, 113-128) - "Einzige Gesamtausgabe der Spruchdichtungen (Spruchgedichte, Komödien, Tragödien, Fastnachtspiele). Ursprünglich angelegt als Neudruck der seltenen, von Sachs noch selbst vorbereiteten Gesamtausgabe der Spruchdichtungen, der sogenannten Nürnberger Folioausgabe. Dank der Mitarbeit und späteren alleinigen Verantwortung Goetzes umgewandelt in eine kritische Ausgabe mit Heranziehung der Handschriften und mit einer Fülle von textkritischen, bibliographischen und quellenkundlichen Informationen, die sich jedoch, da sie zu den früheren Bänden sukzessive nachgetragen wurden, über zahlreiche Bände verteilen. [...]" (Quelle: Hagen 1) - Ausgeschiedene Bibliotheksexemplare (ex-library copies) mit Inventarnummern und Stempeln auf den Schnitten und Rückseiten der Titelblätter. - Einbände leicht berieben. Buchrücken sowie Ecken und Kanten ausgeblichen; auf den Rücken Abdruck der entfernten Signaturschildern zu sehen. Schnitte etwas angestaubt und teils leicht fleckig. - Insgesamt gut erhaltenes Exemplar.

A fine clean copy in a VG pictorial dustwrapper which has one closed nick at foot of rear panel. LIMITED EDITION, Number 1182 of 3000 copies. The important Catalogue Raisonne of Paul Gauguin's work covering the period 1871 - 1903, all fully documented and all but 8 lost works illustrated and concordance with Gauguin's own data for the years 1888-1889. Paul Gauguin was born in Paris in 1848, the son of a journalist. He began his career in the merchant navy and then in 1871 became a stockbroker; he also took up painting. His early works are influenced by Pissarro, with whom he worked in 1879 and 1881. He showed works in the later Impressionist exhibitions (1880-6), subsequently developing the style known as Synthetism during visits to Pont-Aven in Brittany (1886-90). In 1888 he worked briefly with Van Gogh in Arles. Gauguin was faced with increasing poverty after retiring from stockbroking in 1883 and in 1891 he left Paris to work in Tahiti, where many of his most famous paintings were produced ('Nevermore', 1897, London, Courtauld Institute Galleries). He returned to Paris in 1893, but in 1895 went back to the South Seas and in 1901 moved to the Marquesas Islands, where he died in 1903. Public recognition of his talent came posthumously with an exhibition of his work in Paris in 1906. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

One of 1550 copies (but much scarcer than the ample limitation would indicate). One of the great unsung American photobooks, notable not only for the preternatural beauty of Sinsabaugh's ethereal photographs, but also for its unique shape and format.

Fine condition.Dr. Shotwell served as a private consultant to the U.S. State Department in 1945. When Alger Hiss was granted a leave of absence as President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace to fight his court battle against Whittaker Chambers in 1948, Shotwell was elected President. In part, ?In recent years I have refrained from writing to you ?" in the absence of any indication as to whether such an initiative might be welcome. But your recent 90th birthday seems to present the occasion for a restatement of my affection and admiration, an occasion of such moment as to obviate scruples over niceties of restraint ... I recall, often, the period of our close association with pleasure, pride and a lively realization of the inspiration and insights I gained from our collaboration....?"

      S.E.V.P.E.N., Paris 1964 - A good+ copy of the first edition of the rare four-volume complete set (Tomes I, II, III, and the Album). This copy belonged at one point to Professor Raymond de Roover of the History Department of Brooklyn College (each volume bears his discreet name-stamp on the front endsheet), and laid in to Tome I is a letter from James Baughman , managing editor of the (Harvard) Business History Review, requesting a review. Very light marginal pencil notatations on approximately 24 pages of each of the three main volumes (Tomes I, II and III), although the Album volume (of maps, diagrams and photographs) is unmarked. Very minor age-discoloration of the pages, which are still quite supple to the hand. Minor spotting, surface abrasions, and fraying at the extremities of all volumes; volume II has a water stain on the front cover panel, though the interior pages are unaffected. Tome III and the Album bear the small stamp "Service de Presse" atop the front cover. All in all a lovely copy of this increasingly hard-to-find title.
