        Pilgrim At Sea [Signed / Ingraverat] [Pilgrim på havet]

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1964. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the First UK edition, first printing (spine ends gently pushed, lower front corner bent, lower rear corner bumped) in a Very Good dust jacket (light toning to the spine and to each panel's upper edge, short tear where the rear panel meets the spine head, common handling soil), SIGNED BY PAR LAGERKVIST on the title page as follows: "from Par Lagerkvist"; a continuation of an allegorical tale by the great Swedish poet, playwright, novelist, and essayist attempting to polarize the Christian ethos and modern attitudes (being a sequel to "The Death of Ahasuerus" and being the fourth and planned final installment of Lagerkvist's tetralogy consisting of "Barabbas", "The Sybil", "The Death of Ahasuerus", and "Pilgrim at Sea" -- Lagerkvist's "The Holy Land" turned out to be a fifth installment in the allegory). Elected in 1940 as one of the 18 "Immortals" of the Swedish Academy, Lagerkvist was as highly influential writer from his twenties into his seventies, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1951 "for the artistic vigour and true independence of mind with which he endeavors in his poetry to find answers to the eternal questions confronting mankind". Signed copies of Lagerkvist's works are quite scarce and, beyond our shelves, signed copies in English translation are especially so. This copy belonged to actor and decorated WWII Navy Veteran Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the front pastedown. A Very Good copy in a Very Good dust jacket and with an excellent Provenance, SIGNED BY PAR LAGERKVIST. QUITE SCARCE.

Both the novel and movie were critical successes from the first and continue to attract a wide audience" (The Continuum Encyclopedia of Children's Literature). London: Jonathan Cape, 1964-65.

        Manuscript for "Marquis de Sade" (Published as "Satan's Saint: A Novel About the Marquis de Sade")

      N.p. [Los Angeles?], N.d. [ca 1964]. Bound typescript (carbon) on onionskin, bound between red card wrappers; xxiv, 453pp. Number 6 of 10 copies (so stated on typed limitation statement on title page). Mild aging and wear; Very Good to Near Fine. & & Hand-bound manuscript, apparently produced for private circulation. There are no corrections to the text, but the manuscript differs substantially from the published version of the work (issued by Crown Publishers in 1965), including a lengthy, scatological, epistolary Preface (addressed to "Paula") not present in the published version. Other differences may be summed up in the novel's first sentence, which in the manuscript version reads: "Nothing should have been further from the thoughts of Sade than this ugly word shit, that no matter how spelled was eventually to occupy such a prominent place in certain of his books..." In the published version the same sentence has been altered thus: "Nothing should have been further from the thoughts of the Marquis de Sade than those nightmarish scenes of sexual violence and corruption with which he was eventually to pepper his novels..." And so on, throughout, with the text consistently bowdlerized for public consumption. A copy of the published book (Crown: 1965) is included for comparison.& & Endore (1900-1970) enjoyed a long and prolific career in Hollywood as a writer of both fiction and screenplays, though like most writers on the Left he sat out much of the Fifties and Sixties as a result of Hollywood blacklisting (during this period he wrote mostly under the pseudonym "Harry Reis"). His 1934 novel Babouk, a radical account of the Santo Domingo slave uprising, is listed in Rideout, but Endore (though a lifelong Communist sympathizer and occasional Party member) always maintained an ambivalent attitude toward political themes in his writing. By his own estimation, most of his literary output catered to commercial tastes, and he is best remembered for his bestselling 1933 horror novel The Werewolf of Paris, which was adapted twice for the movies.

In all, a handsome, collectible set. & O'Brien's momentous debut, banned in Ireland because of sexual content, "charts the progress of two young Irish girls, Kate and Baba, as they escape their rural home place for the relative cosmopolitanism of Dublin. It is no accident that, in the first novel, a turning point in Kate's development is marked by her acquisition of a copy of Joyce's Dubliners [Joyce was hugely influential in O'Brien's writing life, and in 1999 she wrote a biography of him ]. . . . When asked late in his life if he would ever return to Ireland, Joyce gave the famously enigmatic reply, 'Have I ever left it?', and Edna O'Brien's relationship with her home country is complicated in ways that are similarly fraught and complex."

        Call It Sleep

      San Francisco: Arion Press. Hardcover. Fine. BEAUTIFUL SIGNED LIMITED EDITION from the Arion Press. Number 182 out 300 numbered copies (out of a total edition of 326), signed by Roth. Illustrated with 48 photographs of New York City in the period of the novel. At the time it was written, "Few publishers expressed interest in Call It Sleep because its moody undertones and true-to-life depictions of social and family conflicts were thought to be unmarketable to the nation's readers, who were struggling with the depression." It took decades until a critic wrote of it favorably enough to bring it to the public's attention again, when in 1964 Irving Howe published a review on the front page of the New York Times Book Review, making it a national bestseller. "For its combination of realistic detail, psychological symbolism, and modernist techniques, [Call It Sleep] marks an important transition in Jewish-American literature from the works of early immigrant writers such as Abraham Cahan and Anzia Yezierska to later modern voices such as Saul Bellow and Philip Roth" (American National Biography). San Francisco: Arion Press, 1995. Quarto, green half morocco, original decorated cloth, original decorated slipcase. A fine copy.

        THE CASSIUS CLAY STORY

      New York: Fleet Publishing Corporation, (1964.) . First printing. . Good only in a good dustjacket (bumped at several corners, also bumped and dented at bottom center of front cover - hard enough to have created a short split in the board; jacket is price-clipped and has several ragged tears and associated creasing along the bottom edge of the front panel, along with internal tape repairs. .

Issued later in the same year in which Clay took the heavyweight crown away from Sonny Liston (in their February 1964 bout), the book includes an account of the turbulent months that followed -- including the new champ's relationship with Malcolm X and his conversion to Islam, the controversy over his draft status, his much-publicized trip to Africa, and his suspension by the World Boxing Association (in effect as the book ends), which delayed his rematch with Liston until May 1965. Illustrated with photographs. Includes his professional boxing record. 116 pp.

Very Good in a Very Good dustwrapper. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by Berryman with what amounts to a short letter: "To Anne/and to Chis--if, as Kate & I/hope without knowing anything really/about it, you have got together/again. We were bitterly sorry to/hear--from William, not in the least/as gossip--of your separation./Whatever is happening or does,let/me wish you a restoration of the/happiness I so admired in you on/Mr. Frost's last summer./Affectionately/John/The Abbott Hospital/Minneapolis 3,Minn./22 April '64." The book was published in April 1964 and awarded the Pulitzer Prize in May 1965. The recipients--Anne and Chis--are both referred to in Dream Song 38, contained in this volume, a poem about Robert Frost's death. The Abbott Hospital was a place of refuge for Berryman when overwhelmed by his alcoholism. "In hospitals he found his society," Saul Bellow wrote in his introduction to RECOVERY, Berryman's only novel. "University colleagues were often more philistine, less tolerant of poets than were alcoholics or suicidal girls."

Text by Avedon&#39;s high-school friend, James Baldwin. A brooding, gloomy look at America during the Mad Men era, with a jarring juxtaposition of American Nazis and Allen Ginsberg side by side, a demonic picture of President Eisenhower, and a stoned, pouty Marilyn Monroe next to Dorothy Parker, her teeth blackened by dark lipstick. Shot in a luscious charcoal gravure that only adds to the foreboding. (Parr / Badger, v1, 252).
