        Mao zhuxi yulu [Chinese, i.e., Quotations of Chairman Mao]

      [n.p., probably Beijing: Central Intelligence Bureau of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, May, 1964] First edition, distinguishable from other editions by its slightly larger paper size, by containing thirty chapters and ending at page 250. . In the earliest binding of off-white paper wrappers with front cover printed in black and red, and spine printed in red. . Sixteenmo, with the page size measuring 5 3/8: x 4." . 2 [half-title printed in red with blank verso], [2, title printed in green and red with blank verso], [2, portrait of Mao in brown tones, with blank verso], [2, endorsement leaf by Lin Biao with blank verso], 2 (letterpress introduction), 2 (table of contents, listing 30 chapters), 250 pp. The endorsement leaf is in the earliest state, with the misprint in the second character down of the second vertical row from the right. (See Oliver Han Lei, "How Read is the Little Red Book, in the Antiquarian Book Review, November 2003). Very minor soiling. Ink notation on half-title in Chinese characters. An exceptionally fine copy. This copy contains the Lin Biao's endorsement leaf, with three sentences for the diary of Lei Feng, printed letterpress in calligraphic script. The endorsement leaf is lacking in most copies because of political circumstances. Lin Biao, head of National Defense, had risen in power within the Mao hierarchy and was designated to become Mao's successor. However, rumors surfaced that Lin was planning to assassinate Mao. While never completely proven, they caused Lin to suddenly leave on a military transport for an undisclosed location when their plane was shot down in Mongolia on the evening of September 12, 1971. Subsequently, Mao attempted to eradicate his name from modern history, and the endorsement leaf was ordered to be torn out or defaced in all copies as a sign of loyalty to Mao. Therefore, copies with the endorsement leaf are uncommon, and copies with the endorsement leaf in the first state even scarcer.

        [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. .

        THE LAST ANALYSIS. HOLOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT OF SAUL BELLOW'S ONLY PLAY

      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.

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.

      Horizon Press, New York 1964 - 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.

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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
