        Autograph Letter Signed by American Author and Nobel Prize winner JOHN STEINBECK, about Dogs (Bulldog Terriers) and Cars (the Land Rover)

      1965 - STEINBECK, JOHN. (1902-1968). American author of The Grapes of Wrath; winner of the 1962 Nobel Prize for Literature. ALS. ("John"). 3pp. Folio. Sag Harbor, May 6, 1965. To pioneering advertising executive HOWARD GOSSAGE (1917-1969). (Abridged) - "Telephone conversations are for me, essentially no good. Perhaps I don't listen when I can't see who I am talking to. And even more than usual, I think of what I wanted to say, when it is over. Let's get back to names and their connotations. Rover 2000, as I said and you said doesn't mean a thing. A name should have either a visual effect or an emotional one. And because of its construction, conformation, speed and dependability, its suspension, and cornering ability, even its "down face," the name for the 2000 is obvious. Association with Angel suggests the name. Why not call it British Bull Terrier. Let me go into the reasons. The breed is English Bull Terrier but British is more sturdy. These dogs are different from others in nature, ability and looks. Unlike the setters, spaniels and pointers which came originally from Spain, the bull terrier was built in England and given its present shape about 1846. It is built like a Sherman Tank (read Centurion) and has the speed and quickness of a Spanish bull. It is a kind, comfortable and friendly animal, gentle and loving but when pushed it is a volcano of controlled, fearless and efficient fury. -- When I told you over the phone that I thought I was over extended, I meant it. Your suggestion that I be paid for comment or suggestion is not any good either for the following reasons. 1. It would be literary and 2. income. That's 10% agents and 65-70% federal and state income tax. I would have to make 3 times the price of a car to pay off everybody. Gift tax would be much less. A lease might work, but outright purchase is out of the question. In addition, I don't really need another car. It would be self indulgence which I love when I can afford it. -- Now, about the 3 litre. You say it is called the poor man's Rolls. But no one wants to be thought of as a poor man. The Rover Rolls is a short declarative sentence. And R.R. might come to agreement. If not, then litigation could be made the best possible publicity. I'm giving this far too much time when I should be working on my second draft, which I propose to get back to right now. Let me hear what you think of this." Gossage was a groundbreaking advertising executive who co-founded the agency that counted among its clients Land Rover, the Sierra Club, Qantas Airways, and Petrofina Oil Co. The agency's home was in a former firehouse; becoming a hub of intellectualism whose visitors included Buckminster Fuller and authors Tom Wolfe and Steinbeck. Our letter makes plain Steinbeck's infatuation with a Land Rover about which Gossage had asked for his opinion. Steinbeck was ever drawn to men who knew machines, like [The Grapes of Wrath character] Al Joad, who is 'one with his engine' and keeps the 'ancient overloaded Hudson' running; or Gay, 'the little mechanic of god, the St. Francis of all things that turn and twist and explode,' who repairs the Model T in Cannery Row. His deep interest in finding the appropriate automobile for his specific use culminated with the author and his poodle Charley's 1960 cross-country tour, charmingly chronicled in his final book, Travels with Charley. For the road trip he put a customized camper shell on his truck and dubbed it Rocinante (after Don Quixote's horse). The camper is on view at the John Steinbeck Center in Salinas, California. Our letter also highlights Steinbeck's love of dogs, as he suggests that the Rover 2000 model its hood ornament on his English bull terrier Angel. With the original envelope and accompanied by four Polaroid photographs (two annotated by Steinbeck on the verso) depicting Steinbeck's dog Angel and a Rover with a prototype head ornament. * All our items are sent via FedEx.

      London: Eugrammia Press, 1965. cloth, paper wrappers, both volumes enclosed in a slipcase. Fournier, Pierre Simon. oblong 4to. cloth, paper wrappers, both volumes enclosed in a slipcase. Facsimile of the 1742 manual accompanied by the 20 page introduction. 2 volumes. Printed in an edition limited to 600 copies. Reproduced from the copy in the Printing Library of the St. Bride Institute. Thirty-three plates depict samples of the types cut by Fournier c. 1742 and which then appeared in his Manuel Typographique. A consummate artist and craftsman, Fournier (1712 - 1768) was one of the 18th century's finest engravers and typefounders, and his type, with its light, clean look on the printed page and great economy in text, greatly influenced Giambattista Bodoni (1740 - 1813), who later in the century popularized the more severe "modern" look. Introduction by Mosley, renowned typography professor and then librarian at the St. Bride Printing Library. Printed in collotype by Louis van Leer & Co. of Amsterdam on rag cream paper. Loosely inserted in this copy is the 12 page publisher's catalogue describing this book and others they published.

        For a Renewal of Eremitism in the Monastic State

      [Kentucky]: Abbey of Gethsemani. 1965. Approximately 40-page photocopied typescript essay arguing the values of eremitism (the state of being a hermit). Not directly attributed to Merton here, but with the Christogram "jhs" in the upper left corner of the first page as Merton tended to do, and collected in Collectanea Cisterciencia in 1965 [Dell'Isola C246] and later in Contemplation in a World of Action in 1971 [Dell'Isola A59]. Dated February, 1965, and thus the earliest appearance of this essay we can find. OCLC doesn't seem to list any standalone copies of it; the Thomas Merton Center lists several versions but none with exactly the same pagination and none with an explicit month identified in 1965. Mildly foxed; comb-bound in gold cardstock covers; near fine. First Edition. Softcover.

        The Four Seasons An Impression of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter: a Landscape Panorama

      London: Gogmagog Press, (1965-66). Four small octavo volumes, each with (26)pp. One of 100 copies printed on Hosho paper, each volume signed by Morris Cox, the artist/printer. Each volume contains a colorful panorama of nature printed from heavily textured blocks, which give the offset prints an embossed effect. The changing seasons appear in a flowing image with delicate natural forms and subtle hues. Colin Franklin says that the group is "reckoned as the peak of his achievement as a printer." The unusual texture of the prints derives from the unusual printing blocks used to create them. Cox mounted sheets of cardboard onto plywood and layered them with gesso, next adding materials from nature like seeds, leaves, and twigs. These natural elements were then varnished for strength. Printing these unconventional blocks required an inventive approach. According to David Chambers, "these were printed by using the office copying press and then screwing this down several times as the blocks were drawn through on a long carriage." Slight spine slant on Autumn, light, uniform toning, else a fine set in monotype-printed pictorial boards and original acetate wrappers.

      Maeght, Paris 1965 - 1/150. Folio. [4], 32, [6]pp. Uncut. Original lithographic wrappers by Jean Capdeville. Book contained in a grey paper covered chemise which is housed in a grey paper covered slipcase, with title label laid on front cover. Limitation page signed by the six artists. This striking monograph on painters Claude Garache, Amable Arias, Matieu, Jean Capdeville, Gérard Fromanger, and sculptor Joan Gardy-Artigas is one of the 150 copies of the deluxe edition printed on Vélin de Rives, of which this is No. 9. It is complete with its eight original lithographs (including wrappers), and two b/w photographic reproductions of sculptor Joan Gardy-Artigas' work. Dent at lower back joint of slipcase. Text in French. Slipcase in overall good-, chemise, wrappers and interior in very good condition. 'Derrière le Miroir' accompanied each exposition at the Galerie Maeght in Paris France. The first issue appeared in 1946, The last #253 of the collection in 1982. DLM is born out of the passion of Aime and Marguerite Maeght. The first issues were intended by Aime Maeght to be spread among a large public, with original lithographs. 10,000 Copies were printed and distributed through kiosks. This failed completely and the remaining copies were sold by weight to finance the printing of issue 4, which was printed at only 1500 copies and was the catalog for the George Braque exhibition at the Galerie. Jacques Kober and Rene Char wrote the texts. This concept was continued in later issues combining great writers with great artists. In 1947, Adrien Maeght, joined the firm of his parents and assisted his father in the layout and execution. The artists created original lithographs to illustrate DLM. Mourlot did the lithographic printing and the text was printed by Union in issues 4-115. From 116-148, DLM was shot in the studios of Aime Maeght. Since 1960 an edition 'deluxe' was issued, on Arches paper, limited to 150 copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      1965. CAPOTE, Truman. IN COLD BLOOD. A True Account Of A Multiple Murder And Its Consequences. NY: Random House, [1965]. 8vo., maroon cloth in dust jacket. First Trade Edition, top-edge stained, in the earliest dust jacket- with "1/66" on the front flap and with "Publishers Of The American College Dictionary And The Modern Library" at the bottom of the rear flap. With an interesting signed presentation from Capote on the half-title page: "For Peter Bell with all good wishes, Truman Capote." What makes this presentation interesting is that Peter Bell was one of the protagonists in Capote's earliest book "Summer Crossing." Capote began writing the novel in 1944, when he was 19 years old. A draft of the novel was later discovered in a basement apartment in Brooklyn after Capote left it behind. It was not dicovered or published until about 2004. Peter Bell is a sexually ambiguous, preppy friend of the main protagonist in the novel. Was there a "real" Peter Bell? A little more research on this book wouldn't hurt! Near fine (bright); very minor wear (few very tiny nicks & tears base of spine) d/j. $2500.00.

      Unpublished. 1965. Four historic documents concerning The Beatles 1965 U.S. Tour, sent from Beatles press officer Tony Barrow to Atlanta DJ Paul Drew, who travelled with the Beatles during their 1964 and 1965 U.S. Tours. Drew accompanied The Beatles on their chartered plane, interviewing the group many times, and introducing them at their August 18, 1965 concert at Atlanta Stadium. Document one is a typed letter signed from Tony Barrow to Paul Drew on NEMS letterhead, dated July 20, 1965. Barrow writes "I refer to your application to travel with The Beatles while they are in America next month. I am pleased to say that a place has been reserved for you on the charter aircraft. I shall look forward to meeting you in New York. In the meantime, I enclose information which should assist you in making your arrangements. May I draw your special attention to paragraphs THREE and SIX. With good wishes. Yours sincerely, Tony Barrow." Document two is a fascinating three page hand annotated memo from Barrrow titled "The Beatles' Tour of America: August 1965" on News From NEMS letterhead. Dated August 5, 1965, this memo outlines logistics for those traveling with The Beatles, and a schedule of concerts and charter flights. It's extraordinary to see what those in the Beatles' touring party experienced. Particularly interesting is that "NO ADVANCE INFORMATION AS TO THE NAME OR LOCATION OF EACH HOTEL IS TO BE RELEASED FOR SECURITY REASONS. AFTER EACH CHARTER FLIGHT HAS LEFT THE GROUND, YOU WILL BE GIVEN THE NAME AND ADDRES OF EACH HOTEL IN THE TOWN OR CITY YOU ARE APPROACHING." Document three is a three page itinerary from Pickwick Travel Service titled "Travel Arrangements For The Beatles." This details the day to day travel plans, departure times, airport information and logistics for tour personnel, band instruments, limos, etc. Hotels for the support acts and cities where no flights were required are listed. The fourth and final document is a letter from Tony Barrow to Paul Drew, on NEMS letterhead and dated September 10, 1965 ten days after the tour's final date at San Francisco's Cow Palace. Barrow has enclosed a photograph [not present], and writes "May I take this opportunity of thanking you once again for helping make things go smoothly all the way through the tour - and, of course, for the unexpected and thoroughly useful gifts you piled upon me at the Cabana." Barrow asks Drew for copies of his radio programs about The Beatles, offers that he will be sending advance copies of forthcoming Beatles releases before they are released in the U.S., and offers to have the group make promo messages for Drew. He finishes by promoting the forthcoming single by NEMS/Brian Epstein client The Silkie, a version of The Beatles "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away." He mentions that John, Paul and George "helped with the production" (in fact Lennon produced the track and Paul and George played on it). An exceptional collection of documents, possibly the only surviving examples, which provide an extraordinary glimpse into life on the road with The Beatles during their most productive period. Paul Drew at the time these documents were issued was working at Radio WQXI in Atlanta, he went on to become one of the most successful and influential radio programmers in America. Drew maintained his relationship with The Beatles and interviewed them individually numerous times after the split. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request.
