        When the Lion Feeds (SIGNED 1st AMERICAN EDITION)

      Viking Press, 1964. Viking Press, 1964 ONE-OF-A-KIND: This is the ONLY signed copy of this American 1st edition for sale anywhere. It is a Review Copy with offsetting to front endsheets where clipped newspaper reviews were once laid in. This is Wilbur A. Smith's first published novel. He discontinued using the "A" with subsequent novels. This American first edition was published February 14, 1964, and it is believed that this is the TRUE 1st edition, for the British edition was probably not published until April 1964. The Amazon bibliographic information claims the publication date to be December 1964 for the British edition, but I have a copy with a former owner signature dated April 1964. It is unlikely that the British 1st edition was published prior to February 14, 1964.

        ORIGINAL BROADSIDE: IN CONCERT, BOB DYLAN, MARCH 7 ... COUSENS GYM, TUFTS UNIVERSITY ....

      Medford, MA, Tufts University, 1964. Original edition. Broadside, one page, 11.25" x 8.5", printed in blue ink on white stock, incorporating four candid photos of Dylan in concert. According to a 2009 news release by Tufts Sports Information, recalling some history of Cousens Gym, "..The charming old gym also has had its moments in the national spotlight. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame acts such as The Band and Simon and Garfunkel played concerts in the gym. Singer-songwriter Bob Dylan was a no-show for a March 1964 concert at Cousens, sending 2, 000 mightily unhappy fans home..." . Near Fine. This is an original broadside, not a cheap, modern reprint. On the back is a quick sketch of a woman, executed and signed by a well-known artist/sculptor who was in the Boston folk-revival scene back in the early '60s. He used the verso of this broadside for an on-the-spot sketch of a woman at Club 47 where he worked part-time as the dishwasher and part-time as a musician.

        THE SHAKO. The Magazine of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. Vol. 33, #1

      The Citadel Fall 1964, [Charleston, SC] - Quarto (9" x 12") bound in pictorial wraps.

This appearance predates his first book, THE BOO, by 6 years. Also included is Vol. 34, #2, Spring 1966, which does not contain any writing by Conroy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Wraps somewhat rubbed, now neatly restored and professionally rebacked to style, contents sound and clean, about very good. First edition.

        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.
