        Corrected manuscript and galleys for a 1964 interview for Playboy Magazine

      N.p.: N.p., 1964. An archive including a final draft typescript and two sets of galleys (one mimeographed, the second mechanically produced in long format), and various filed ephemera (payment receipts and internal memorandums) for a significant interview in February 1963 with Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, published in the June 1964 issue of "Playboy" Magazine. The long galleys were submitted to Bergman for approval, per Playboy's policy during the 1960s and 1970s, and include several holograph initialed notations and substantive deletions by Bergman, in red ink, all humorous and quite direct ("Missunderstanding!" "Journalist's own poetry!" "Friends!?") The ribbon copy typescript of the interview, issued prior to the galleys, runs 14 pages, on white office stock, with numerous holograph corrections in pencil by interviewer Cynthia Greiner and a proofreader. Greiner's further edits are present on the mimeographed first set of galleys.& & Probably the most important interview with Bergman published in the 1960s, at a critical point just after he had completed his famous trilogy that included "Through A Glass Darkly" (1961), "Winter Light" (1962), and "The Silence" (1963), and just prior to "Persona" (1964), the film that sealed his international fame.& & In this interview, typical of the frank, intellectual content of Playboy film pieces of the era, Bergman discusses at length his attitude toward life in Stockholm (he would later move to an island), the trilogy, the charges of pornography leveled against "The Silence," the hard work involved in making a film ("Do you know what movie making is? Eight hours of hard work every day to get three minutes of film. And during those eight hours there are maybe only twelve minutes, if you're lucky, of real creation."), the folly of film criticism, the American New Wave ("The Connection" (Shirley Clarke, 1962), "Shadows" (John Cassavetes, 1959), and "Pull My Daisy" (Robert Frank, 1964) are discussed), and Federico Fellini ("He is everything I am not. I should be like him. He is so baroque. His work is so generous, so warm, so easy, so unneurotic.")& & As interesting as Bergman's corrections are the many deletions made by Greiner in the mimeographed early galley, including a paragraph about the episodes of fornication and masturbation in "The Silence," a comparison by Bergman between "the unfulfilling release of autoeroticism" and "wordless intercourse with a nameless stranger," a mention of Bergman's "psychiatric case history," and a long, highly detailed description of Bergman's distinctive demeanor during the interview ("his expression unreadable...replying [to our questions] often after long introspective silences..turning occasionally to fix us with a penetrating gaze, digging a paper clip distractedly into a table top.") & & A complete archive for one of the most important interviews with Bergman during one of his most significant periods. & & Typescript: 14 leaves. Mimeographed galleys: 36 leaves. Long galleys: 6 leaves. Three dated payment receipts for interviewer's and proofreader's salary and expenses. One inter-office memorandum slip noting that approval is required prior to allowing release of the galleys. All pages supple, Very Good to Near Fine.

        [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. .

      First Edition. hardcover. Near Fine and quite exceptional. An undated early holograph version of Saul Bellow's only full-length play contained in a ledger-type notebook (8-1/4" x 11-3/8") with marbled paper boards and a black cloth spine. Bellow has subtitled this as "A Work in Progress." Acts I and II of this version are complete in 71 pages with 4 pages of preliminary material for an Act III, all handwritten by Bellow. The 1964 staged version was reduced to two acts. Bellow appears to have written out Acts I & II as a fair copy from previous versions and notes in preparation for completing the play with a new Act III. There are relatively few insertions and corrections in his text of the first two acts which take up about 75% of the notebook. The third act consists mostly of blank pages with 3 pages of rough notes and key speeches including what seem to be the climactic lines of his main character, the comedian Bummidge, who has been undergoing an obsessive self-analysis in the previous acts: "The world was never real for me. But now I see it's more real than I was. I never admitted that it existed. It always knew I was here (he goes around picking up objects & kissing them because they're real).... Now what is the theory. Not Momma's womb but my own empty heart?" Laid in to the notebook is a SIGNED typed 12-page fragment of an earlier version of the play, with Bellow's original title, THE CRASH PROGRAM, crossed out in ink and his new title, THE LAST ANALYSIS, written over it. Bellow manuscripts of this size and importance are seldom offered with most already housed in institutional collections.

Photographs in uniformly nice condition, internally near fine, album is edgeworn with splits at the plastic covering the spiral binding, else very good in illustrated boards.. Unique photo album from the Vietnam War era, dating between 1964 and 1965, housed in an illustrated Okinawa album. Includes 105 mostly black-and-white prints, measuring approximately 5 1/2 X 2 1/2 inches. Images depict a group of young recruits stationed at a field camp in Okinawa, Japan, with a combination of both staged and candid shots. An intimate portrait of American soldier life, the album features photos of GI's engaging in horseplay, posing with firearms, and training in the surrounding region of Okinawa. Photographs are adhered to the pages and protected by clear mylar sheets. Arresting document of solider camaraderie, at times bordering on the homoerotic; images with soldiers pointing guns at each other are particularly chilling and evocative.
