        TYPED LETTER SIGNED

      Pasadena, CA: np, 1964. BRILLIANTLY WITTY LETTER BY HIGHLY CELEBRATED THEORETICAL PHYSICIST RICHARD FEYNMAN ON ONE OF HIS LECTURES ON PHYSICS. The letter, typed and signed by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman and dated October 27, 1964, is addressed to a Harvard student and reads in full:27 October 1964Mr. David -----Harvard University Adams C-56 Cambridge 38, MassachusettsDear Mr. ----- :Thank you for your interesting letter describing that wonderful phenomenon. I guess your "zero" is displaced outward but the inner nerve connections are as usual, so you have to "converge" to see parallel. Half way through your letter, I though, "poor guy", but on reading of the manifold advantages that your singular ability has for your [sic], I am going back to the bathroom mirror and practice harder this time, again and again, to see if I can do it too. Evidently you are a genetically advantageous mutation, and we can guess now where the evolution of the human race is headed.Sincerely,[signed] Richard P. FeynmanRPF:bbIn this letter, Richard Feynman responds to a letter from a Harvard student who had written the CalTech professor after reading his Lectures on Physics-- a comprehensive, lecture-based textbook on physics that is still considered one of the foremost texts on the subject--to inform him of his "relatively rare endowment":"We found that I do have a muscular imbalance which caused my eyes to spontaneously diverge unless the stimulus of identical images forces the muscular control necessary to insure superposition of those images."The student's claim, which he clearly acknowledges is a direct challenge to Feynman's argument in his lecture "Mechanisms of Seeing", in which he writes:"It is impossible consciously or unconsciously to turn both eyes out at the same time, not because there are no muscles, but because there is no way to send a signal to turn both eyes out, unless we have had an accident or there is something the matter, for instance if a nerve has been cut. Although the muscles of one eye can certainly steer that eye about, not even a Yogi is able to move both eyes out freely under voluntary control, because there does not seem to be any way to do it. We are already wired to a certain extent."Despite his refutation of the lecture, Feynman--the irreverently cool, bongo-playing scientist--seems humored and excited by his letter, as he quips: "Evidently you are a genetically advantageous mutation, and we can guess now where the evolution of the human race is headed." Not only a brilliant lecturer and unparalleled computator, the physicist was a remarkably unique personality, a man who was famously "radical in his disrespect for authority, but conservative in his science" (Freeman Dyson).Aside from his iconoclastic and entertaining nature, Feynman was inarguably gifted. Tasked with having to work on the Manhattan Project (Feynman was the youngest group leader in the theoretical division of the program), his post-war work also received serious accolades. In 1965, he was co-awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his groundbreaking experiment on the varied phenomena at work in light, electricity, and radio. His foray into academia was fruitful as well; his numerous lectures at CalTech evolved into many books, including Lecture on Physics , Quantum Electrodynamics, and The Theory of Fundamental Processes . Later on in his career, he conducted a televised experiment which dramatically demonstrated the predictability of the 1986 explosion of the space shuttle Challenger.This letter, in addition to being penned the same year that the monumental Lecture on Physics was published and a year before his Nobel Prize win, is significant because of its characteristically "Feynmanian" tone: funny, brash, a little dramatic, and most significantly demonstrating his famous curiosity and love of experimentation, no matter what the subject.Provenance: Acquired directly from the recipient, with a copy of the original letter included.Pasadena, California: October 27, 1964. Quarto, one page, on Feynman's California Institute of Technology letterhead. Signed in ink at the end of the letter. A bit of soiling at extreme margins, evidence of staple at top left corner, and usual folds, otherwise in fine condition.LETTERS SIGNED BY FEYNMAN - ESPECIALLY ONES WITH REVEALING CONTENT - ARE EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE. Very Good.

Fine, fresh, bright copy (lower board edges very lightly rubbed); about Fine jacket (three short closed tears to back panel). From the collection of bibliophile Donald Kaufmann. Crandell A27.I.a1. Williams's allegorical coming-of-death play, set in Italy and centering on a dying, wealthy woman, Mrs. Flora Goforth. Written after the death of the playwright's father, in 1957, which sent Williams into psychoanalysis, and that of his longtime companion, Frank Merlo, in 1963, which plunged him into despair. "By the late 1950s, he had become dependent on alcohol and drugs in order to keep writing, and would refer to the 1960s as his 'Stoned Age,' which would end with several month's confinement in a psychiatric ward. But keep writing he did, and prolifically, in a kind of Beckettian determination always to go on." (Literary Encyclopedia) In 1968, Williams adapted the play into the film Boom!, costarring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, and directed by Joseph Losey. N. B.

        GROPE - Vol One No One, Jan 1964

      New York: Tibor de Nagy Editions, 1964. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. 4to. Stapled pictorial wraps. Some faint soil to front wrapper. Mild toning overall. Very good. One of 500 unnumbered copies. A scarce and important publication which apparently ran just one issue. Forakis, Yampolsky, and Fleming (all artist's better known for other mediums) each contribute one work or "story" utilizing the conventions of the comic (panels, word balloons, etc.), but all non-narrative and veering towards the completely abstract, psychedelic and/or nonsensical. The motifs and styles clearly prefigure the work of later underground comic artists, and this is easily among the earliest we've seen to exhibit a non-commercial, "underground" aesthetic (albeit mixed with a fine art influence). Indeed, this publication predates by at least several months what is generally considered the first underground comic: Jack Jackson's GOD NOSE (which though printed the same year was clearly published sometime after January). And though the three pieces in GROPE don't quite demonstrate the over-the-top subversive quality one typically associates with the underground, all three clearly exhibit a prescient style that would soon come to fuller fruition in R. Crumb and others. Curiously, published by Tibor de Nagy, who had previously done nothing quite like this. OCLC shows just 12 holdings.

        The Two Faces of January

      William Heinemann, London 1964 - First Impression of Highsmith's most elusive title in collectible condition. 8vo: [4],284pp. Publisher's French blue cloth, spine stamped in gold; dust jacket illustrated by John Bance, priced 21s. A spectacular copy, apparently unread, with tight binding (spine ends lightly bumped), crisp gold lettering, and spotless pages; Fine jacket without usual fading to spine panel. The title of Highsmith's thriller alludes to the two faces of the Roman god Janus, after whom January was named. In Beautiful Shadow: A Life of Patricia Highsmith (2003), her biographer, Andrew Wilson, claims the title fits the "janus-faced, flux-like nature of her protagonists." According to Wilson, for the American edition, Doubleday had Highsmith cut 32 pages, making this, the London edition, the more complete.

        Ace of Pentacles

      New York: James A. Carr & Robert A. Wilson, 1964. First edition. 8vo, 72pp, printed on watermarked paper and bound in leatherette stamped in gilt at the spine; yellow silk bookmark sewn in. In the original unprinted glassine wrapper. One of 12 presentation copies, with a holograph poem bound in, signed by Wieners and both publishers. With a tls from Robert Wilson also laid in.The manuscript page has the poem "Two Years Later" written out in Wiener's hand and bound in. This poem is the concluding poem of the book on page 71 of the printed text, and in this copy the lower right hand corner of the page is burnt away.The letter from Wilson is written "to certify that the small cigarette burn in the lower right corner of page 71 of Ace of Pentacles is 'Auhtorial' i.e. caused by John Wieners when signing the twelve presentation copies." (The spelling of Auhtorial is likely not a misspelling, but is probably Bob quoting Wiener's fabulous accent - perhaps as he rational- ized the burn).The only other example of the 12 presentation copies we've seen didn't have the burn mark, which leads usto believe that the burn is likely unique to this copy."Two Years Later" begins with the lines "The hollow eyes of shock remain / Electric Sockets burnt out in the skull". I've always thought that these lines might refer to electroshock therapy, which Wieners experienced in the time between the publication of his first book and this, his second.With the book in hand it is difficult not to imagine the scene as John opened the page to the printed poem in order to copy it out in his hand, a cigarette dangling from his fingers - the burn perhaps a mark of forgetfulness as his hands became absorbed once again in the lines of the poem.

Eshton Hall School was situated in Gargrave in the West Riding of the County of York until the premises were abandonned and the building was turned into a nursing home. There is still an active group of alumni (http://eshtonhall.co.uk/index.htm). During the Second World War Bentham School was relocated to Eshton Hall and afterwards in 1949 an independent public school was realised. Therefore Eshton was born as a co-ed initially. The original main building was burnt to the ground in the late 1500's, leaving only the old wing and arch. The new main building with its impressive tower was built in the early part of the 1600's by the Wilson family, who were Royalist sympathisers. H169
