        "FARNHAM'S FREEHOLD" [novel]. TYPED MANUSCRIPT, SIGNED (TMsS), the first third of the novel , first carbon copy

      Pages soiled by compositor's dirty fingers, some offset and smearing. of carbon but perfectly legible, some edge nicks and faint creases,. old stab marks in upper edges of some leaves, but overall in very. good condition. (#103460). The setting copy, extensively copy-edited and marked up for the printer. 205 leaves, doubled-spaced, typed on rectos only, plus ribbon-copy cover sheet with story blurb. The novel was published as a three-part serial by IF magazine in the July, August and October 1964 issues before its book publication later that year by G. P. Putnam's Sons. This is the magazine setting copy for the first installment. It is signed in blue ball point ink on the first page by Heinlein and the magazine's cover sheet is marked "July IF" in blue ink, presumably in Heinlein's hand. The manuscript has numerous handwritten editorial changes in pencil and red ink (most likely by Frederik Pohl), mostly excisions and, less frequently, brief insertions of text, as well as instructions for the printer. The editor has cut over 60 separate passages, ranging from a line to a page; about 5-10% of the text. The present manuscript thus preserves a significantly different version of Heinlein's text. The novel was written during the fall of 1962, with the Cuban Missile Crisis in the background, and was originally called GRAND SLAM. Heinlein biographer William Patterson writes, "GRAND SLAM was a very uncharacteristically pessimistic book, with the protagonist tossed from situation to situation and having no control over his own destiny. It was written at astonishing speed -- 25 days for a 500 page typescript (about 150,000 words, or nearly 6,000 words per day) -- probably the only way Heinlein could have sustained the dark mood". This work has been described as a "long and opinionated novel of ideas, invokes rather unpleasantly a Black despotism in the USA of the far future - and begins to fully articulate a theme that obsessed the late RAH: the notion of the family as utterly central" (Clute and Nicholls [eds], The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction [1993], p. 556).

        Conversations avec Picasso

      NRF Gallimard, Paris 1964 - Octavo. 334pp. Original printed wrappers with red and black lettering on front cover. Book in a 2/3 red leather modern custom made clamshell over tan cloth with raised bands and gold lettering on spine. First trade edition of Brassaï’s intimate account of his experiences with Picasso. Brassaï (the pseudonym for Gyula Halasz) originally trained to be an artist, but after arriving in Paris in 1923, he instead turned to journalism. His artistic yet hauntingly candid works of photojournalism of Paris nightlife won him international acclaim in the 1930s. During the German occupation, Brassaï worked in Picasso’s studio, and used Picasso as the subject of numerous post-War photographs, many of which are presented in this book. Picasso said of "Conversations," "Read this book if you want to understand me." According to Brassaï, who has been described by Henry Miller as "a living eye," the ideal photographer is "an implacable spectator, an impartial witness and a faithful chronicler," but also someone with a "sense of the magic beneath the surface of reality" (Roth, 76). Brassaï brings these observational skills to bear in his account of his interactions with Picasso. Brassaï's lifelong friendship with Picasso resulted in several photographic books, notably "Les Sculptures de Picasso" (1948) and this "Conversations avec Picasso" (1964). Age-toning and slight foxing on covers. Text in French. Clamshell in overall near to fine, wrappers in good+, interior in near fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      mars 1964-début 1965, Bruxelles / Köln - Trous de perforatrice au bord gauche du dernier document, sinon excellent état. Le Front des Patriotes Congolais - FPC était une organisation clandestine d'étude et de réflexion regroupant des étudiants du Congo-Léopoldville en Europe, fondée par huit personnes, dont deux Belges, début 1964 à Bruxelles. Elle se transformera vers la mi-1964 en parti politique, noyau à partir duquel se forma début 1965 l'Union des Jeunesses Révolutionnaires Congolaises, qui prendra sa succession. Neuf documents: Comptes rendus des 2ème, 3ème, 4ème, 5ème et 6ème séances de travail, tenues du 16 mars au 4 mai 1964. Le compte rendu de la 1ère séance de travail, mentionnant le nom des participants, a été détruit à l'époque par mesure de sécurité; il a été décidé à la 2ème réunion de remplacer les noms par des numéros. Les comptes rendus des 2ème, 3ème, 4ème et 5ème séances ont été dactylographiés en deux exemplaires (il s'agit ici du second exemplaire en copie carbone, respectivement 6, 13, 1 et 6 pages 27,5cm x 21,5cm. Le compte rendu de la 6ème (et dernière) réunion n'ayant jamais été dactylographié, figurent ici l'ordre du jour, un début de compte rendu et 10 pages de notes prises à la réunion, ces trois documents étant manuscrits. Les comptes rendus, résumant chaque intervention, étaient approuvés lors de la réunion suivante et paraphés par chaque participant (les copies ne l'ont pas été). Ils incluent notamment le rapport d'un des membres ayant assisté au VIIIème Congrès de l'Association des Juristes Démocrates tenue à Budapest et le rapport des contacts pris par trois membres à Paris avec J(ean) P(ierre) N('Diaye) (sociologue sénégalais, responsable du Bureau d'Etudes des Réalités Africaines), R(obert) C(ornevin) (chef du Centre d'étude sur l'Afrique et l'Outre-Mer), N(guyen) K(ien) et l'avocat J(acques) M(ansour) V(ergès) (tous deux de la revue "Révolution", première revue pro-chinoise publiée en France). Statuts du FPC (Agrafé, 28 pages stencylées 27,5cm x 21,5cm, non datées - en fait entre mai et novembre 1964). Le FPC s'y affirme comme un parti politique qui "prend comme guide la théorie révolutionnaire basée sur la conception scientifique du monde et des lois de la société humaine". Le document insiste particulièrement sur l'importance de l'organisation et de la discipline, qui font l'objet d'un préambule de 6pp. Deux projets différents d'emblème du FPC sur papier transparent, portant tous deux la devise du FPC "Libération, Edification, Socialisme" (10cm x 10cm et 14cm x 14cm).

        The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore

      New Directions, New York 1964 - First edition, second issue (of three) with pages 19-22 tipped in and Scene two starting on page 21 (approximately only 50 copies of the first issue were produced). Fine in a slightly age-toned, very near fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by Williams to actress Ruth Ford: "Dear Love with all my heart, Tennessee." In Williams' *Memoirs* he refers to Ford as "the wise and lovely actress, Ruth Ford, who seems to have been born with more worldly wisdom than I have accumulated even at this point in life." Ford, the Mississippi-born sister of surrealist author Charles Henri Ford, was a beautiful model and actress, first in Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre, and later in films and theater. Notably, she starred on Broadway in Jean Paul Sartre's *No Exit* in 1946, under the direction of John Huston (the last of five Broadway plays he directed). Her apartment in the Dakota became a salon for authors such as Williams, Edward Albee, Terrence McNally, and Truman Capote. A chance encounter between Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents in her Manhattan living room led to their collaboration, with her Dakota-neighbor Leonard Bernstein, on *West Side Story*. Similarly, she brought together Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight to create the celebrated stories of *Eloise*, the little girl who lived at the Plaza.Ford is well known also for her long friendship with William Faulkner, which began with her dating his brother Dean in the early 1930s. Faulkner was openly smitten with Ford for many years. He wrote his experimental 1951 title *Requiem for a Nun*, a sequel to his early and controversial novel *Sanctuary*, with her in mind. He further declared, to the consternation of his agent and publisher, that it was her dramatic property (*Requiem for a Nun* was a mixture of stage play and novel). Stage production of the title stalled for years, partly because Faulkner's experimental drama did not lend itself to live theatre, and partly because the producers were unsure of Ford's suitability. Faulkner was adamant that it was her dramatic property, and in 1959 she adapted the play herself and starred in its London production opposite her second husband, Zachary Scott. Her stage version received enthusiastic reviews in both London and New York, but did not fare so well with audiences and closed after a short run on Broadway. Ford continued to act on both stage and screen well into the 1980s. She passed away in 2009 at the age of 98. A wonderful inscription and nice association. See this book in 3D on our site.

      [London: Sigma Project. 1964]. Loose mimeographed sheets stapled at one corner with printed rectos and two loose sheets. All but one measuring 8" x 13". Folded from mailing with light wear at a few corners and one with an address stamp and blue smudge, overall near fine or better. After the publication of Cain's Book, Trocchi moved to London with his family and for the next two years focused much of his time on the Sigma Project, consisting of a series of mimeographed portfolio mailings as a way of directly connecting with readers. The intent behind the project was to further his Situationist-influenced theory for cultural revolution based on a focus on one's "inner space" of self-consciousness as a way of influencing society. The Sigma Project included both political works and letters authored by Trocchi, as well as by William Burroughs, Stan Brakage, Michael McClure, and Robert Kelly.All the issues are difficult to obtain and to identify properly, which makes assembling a complete set particularly difficult. This partial set includes:• Sigma Portfolio 2 - Invisible Insurrection of a Million Minds. Written by Trocchi. [1964]. 8pp. Originally published in the Scottish literary journal Saltire Review in 1962. Trocchi lays out his idea behind the Sigma Project. OCLC locates five copies.• Sigma Portfolio 3 - Sigma: A Tactical Blueprint. Written by Trocchi. [1964]. 7pp. Originally printed in City Lights Journal 2. Plan of action. OCLC locates four copies.• Sigma Portfolio 4 -- Potlatch. Unsigned but written by Trocchi. [1964].

OCLC locates three copies.• Sigma Portfolio 5 - Sigma General Information. Second impression. [1964]. 8pp. Anonymous essay discussing the Sigma Project in relation to theories from R.D. Laing, Wallace Berman, William Burroughs, and others. OCLC locates three copy.• Sigma Portfolio 12 - Subscription Form. [1964]. 1p. Brief overview of the Sigma Portfolio which is "outflanking the traditional trap of publishing-house policy, and by means of which the reader gets it, so to speak 'hot' from the writer's pen." OCLC locates one copy.• Sigma Portfolio 15 - [Letter to Potential Subscribers]. [1964]. 1p.

Pourtant elles ne constituent que le premier volet d'un énorme triptyque. Car il fallait bien tailler à coups de hache dans les ateliers, afin de pouvoir les évoquer dans leur totalité aujourd'hui. Car il s'agissait de faire avec ces ateliers tels qu'ils sont et qu'ils ne seront plus jamais – puisqu'il travaille, puisque les toiles changent, puisqu'elles s'en vont de par le monde – un livre énorme en trois parties. Arbitraires, puisque dans la réalité tout se mélange. Dans l'esprit de Picasso, ces livres devaient exprimer la réalité vivante de son travail : c'est à dire le travail en cours, les mille travaux en cours de ses travaux dans toutes les matières, les ateliers tout nus, tout pleins, tels qu'ils sont autour de lui quand il travaille. Ce qu'il appelait les «secrets d'alcôve» d'un atelier." *********************** [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Barefoot in the Park

      Random House, New York 1964 - FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY NEIL SIMON on the title page, of his first great hit- the play that would launch his career. The basis for the 1967 film starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. "The earliest of Simon's collaborations with director Mike Nichols (who won the Tony Award for Best Director), Barefoot in the Park was an instant hit with both the critics and the public, enjoying a run on Broadway that lasted for almost four years. Howard Taubman, reviewing the play for the New York Times, called it a 'bubbling, rib-tickling comedy' and claimed that Simon exhibited 'the dash of a highly skilled professional writer.' Norman Nadel, in the New York World-Telegram and The Sun, wrote that 'Simon's scintillating dialogue, the cast's spirited playing and Nichols' clear genius as a director of comedy turn this [play] into the merriest evening Broadway has enjoyed in years.' John McClain of the Journal-American summed up the response of many playgoers when he remarked that Barefoot in the Park was, quite simply, the funniest comedy he had ever seen" (Koprince, Understanding Neil Simon). Illustrated with photos of the original production starring Robert Redford. New York: Random House, 1964. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. Book fine, dust jacket with tiny chipping to spine ends; closed tear and light soiling to back panel. A very handsome copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      5 October 1964 to 22 May 1970, Edinburgh - Stewart, Mary (b. Florence Elinor Rainbow, 1916- ). Scottish fiction, fantasy, and mystery writer best known for her Arthurian "Crystal Cave" series now referred to as The Merlin Chronicles which brilliantly blended historical fiction and fantasy. 79 Morningside Park, Edinburgh. 5 October 1964 to 22 May 1970 to James Keddie of Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts (Scottish born American editor & publisher, 1907- 1983, known as "Cheetah" by The Speckled Band Of Boston, the Sherlockian society of which he was a lifetime member). FINE COLLECTION OF ELEVEN LETTERS AND ONE INSCRIBED EASTER GREETINGS CARD (12 TLS, 1 TNS], most of which are aerogrammes). The friendship between fellow Scots Stewart and Keddie is revealed in this warm and enthusiastic correspondence (variously signed "Yours Ever" at first, then "Love" and "Affectionately") later on, with letters that contain a good mix of literary content and personal revelation, some discussions of Stewart's emotional states as publication dates approach, her books, her domestic challenges, their shared colleagues, writers she admires. Among her works discussed is WILDFIRE AT MIDNIGHT (1956), MADAM WILL YOU TALK? (1954, her first book), AIRS ABOVE THE GROUND (1965), THE GABRIEL HOUNDS (1967), ending with her plans to meet him as she's just about to embark on her American book tour to promote her 1970 masterpiece THE CRYSTAL CAVE ("And thanks for your good wishes for THE CRYSTAL CAVE. I hope you love it."). Other excerpts include: "This is publication day over here, and I combat my sinking, nervous feeling which gets worse instead of better each time I place my bet with the public and put myself at its mercy." "The reviewers are sharpening their claws for anything that breathes of success and popularity as this MUST mean, they think, that it's BAD." She discusses Rex Stout's "writing, style, and plot," and shares her grief "I was very sorry indeed about Margery Allingham." And she is particularly teasing as she discusses THE CRYSTAL CAVE as a work-in-progress: "This is a historical novel which I have been wanting to do for a very long time [and I'll] tell you a bit more about [it] but at the moment I feel it would kill it to talk about it." The letters have a few minor blemishes, light folds and their like, but generally are in NEAR FINE condition. Substantial content, an excellent archive. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        [Publisher's Mock-Up or Maquette]: The World of Atget

      New York: Horizon Press. (1964). First. The publisher's mock-up of this landmark book on the important French photographer, written and prepared by a distinguished American photographer. Large quarto. Publisher's cloth, unstamped and unlettered. Publisher's blueline printed text laid in, or bound in on pasted photostats, the title page has been composed from cut and pasted elements, the 176 images that grace the book are also pasted in as blueline examples, and are numbered with pasted on numbers or hand corrections. One Atget image appears to be a fine quality gelatin silver photographic print of Plate 91, "Interior" (possibly printed by Abbott), and is mounted on card and laid into the mock-up (with a crease to the mount and to one corner of the image). The dust jacket proof is glued to boards with the flap copy affixed to the unprinted flaps. Some of the affixed text is loose or in a couple of cases partially detached because of the composer's glue drying, the jacket is a bit tattered, though overall mostly complete. A unique artifact presenting the birth of an important monument in photographic history, Abbott's definitive study of Atget. Provenance on request. .
