New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, (1964). First Edition. cloth. Cloth a bit faded and lightly spotted. Dustwrapper soiled with small chips at the spine tips. 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."

Hall, Richard H.
Washington DC: National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena [NICAP], 1964 Washington, D.C.: National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena [NICAP], 1964. First Edition. Quarto, printed wraps, 184 pp. Light marginal toning, just a touch of spine roughening (though spine is complete), faint soiling, a few passages highlighted in yellow. Overall, a solid Very Good, perhaps a bit better. True first edition of the widely-acknowledged masterwork of NICAP and UFOlogy luminary Richard Hall. Without any doubt, this was the earliest treatment of UFOs of its kind - scholarly, text-dense, information packed, with charts, diagrams, sketches, tables, statistics, and more. An opus that clearly required long - and objective and focused - manhours. Reprinted in 1997 by Barnes & Noble, this memorable artifact is soon to be extinct as a first edition, in any condition.
