        In Cold Blood

      New York , RANDOM HOUSE, 1965 - A True Account of a Multiple Murder and its Consequences. 8vo. pp. 344. . Ottimo (Fine). . Prima edizione (First Edition, First Impression). . E' solo con questo romanzo, tradotto in italiano ''A sangue freddo'', che la narrativa di Capote si sviluppò nel senso di una più obiettiva e puntuale analisi dei fatti. L'opera, che ebbe un clamoroso successo commerciale e fu anche portata sullo schermo, si basava su un fatto di cronaca nera realmente avvenuto: la strage di una facoltosa famiglia del Kansas compiuta, apparentemente senza motivo, da due psicopatici più tardi processati e condannati alla pena capitale. Il libro, che fu definito da Capote stesso come appartenente al genere della ''nonfiction novel'' fu il risultato di 5 anni di attente ricerche sul crimine e sui suoi esecutori, fino a comprendere una precisa e documentata indagine sulle motivazioni sociali e psicologiche che portarono i due assassini al delitto. Rilegato tela, sovracoperta (cloth, dust jacket) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Eleven Poems

      Belfast: Festival Publications,, [1965]. Octavo. Single quire, wire stitched, white outer wrapper printed in black with the "sun" device in the secondary darker shade of purple. Fine copy. First edition, second issue, of the rare first published work of Seamus Heaney. This is Heaney's first published work, with the printed notice with regard to his "First book of poems, "Death of a Naturalist", due from Faber, Spring 1966". The very first poem, "Personal Helicon (For Michael Longley)" (whose work appeared in the same Festival Publications series) in its opening and closing lines ("As a child, they could not keep me from wells / and old pumps with buckets and windlasses. / I loved the dark drop, the trapped sky" and "I rhyme / to see myself, to set the darkness echoing") prefigures the Nobel Prize acceptance speech that Heaney would make 30 years later, "I credit [poetry] ultimately because [it] can make an order as true to the impact of external reality and as sensitive to the inner laws of the poet's being as the ripples that rippled in and rippled out across the water in that scullery bucket fifty years ago. An order where we can at last grow up to that which we stored up as we grew. An order which satisfies all that is appetitive in the intelligence and prehensile in the affections. I credit poetry, in other words, both for being itself and for being a help, for making possible a fluid and restorative relationship between the mind's centre and its circumference." There are three "issues" of this pamphlet - correctly speaking three impressions. The first has the device in a light pink/purple on white, the second as here and the third is on much thicker blue-toned stock and in decent green card wrappers. The first and second issues may well be from the same setting, printing even but the third is palpably a separate impression. None are common and this second has much to recommend it.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2 pp on one sheet of monogrammed stationery "NWW", n.p.,March 21, 1975

      SALE. The renown actress writes a chatty, friendly letter to her longtime friend, Ruth Gordon, the film, stage and TV actress, also known as a screenwriter and playwright. Wood and Gordon had been friends for many years, cementing their friendship in 1965 during the filming of "Inside Daisy Clover" where Gordon played Natalie Wood's mother. In this letter, Wood tells Ruth Gordon family news, including news of Wood's children, the oldest of which, Natasha, is Ruth Gordon's goddaughter. Natalie Wood writes from her home in Beverly Hills and begins by saying that she "just heard from Edie who said you sent your love." This is possibly Edie Adams, with whom Natalie Wood appeared in the 1963 film, "Love With the Proper Stranger." Wood then tells Gordon about the family. "We are all terrific - Courtney Brooke is walking & has 5 teeth & Natasha is a genius with huge long eyelashes!" Natasha Gregson Wagner was born September 29, 1970. Her father was Richard Gregson, the film producer who was married to Natalie Wood from 1969 to 1972 in between the two times she was married to Robert Wagner. Wagner adopted Natasha when he and Wood remarried in 1972. Courtney Brooke Wagner was born to Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner on March 9, 1974. Here, she is just one year old. Wood then mentions upcoming acting roles her and her husband, Robert Wagner (R.J.). "R.J. just did a pilot... with Eddie Albert & I've got "Fat Chance" with Michael Caine coming out in July & maybe gonna do a movie with Hitchcock next month...." She refers to the pilot Wagner did for the TV show "Switch" which actually aired on March 21, 1975, the date of this letter. He and then Wood herself appeared in "Switch" throughout 1975-1978. She mentions her film with Michael Caine which came out in 1976 as "Peeper." And as to possibly doing a film with Hitchcock, that never worked out. She then says that she would like to "do another movie fairly soon & then have one more baby! But at the moment I'm trim (104)...." She did the TV movie "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" with Wagner in 1976, but did not have another child. She then refers to Ruth Gordon's husband, Garson Kanin, the writer and director of plays and films. "Edie said Garson wrote a new book - I can hardly wait to read it." She signs "Natalie" and ends by sending love and sending love from her husband. Also signed "N. Wagner" on envelope above return Beverly Hills address. ORIGINAL PRICE $750.

Owned and used by Jacqueline Kennedy.After Jacqueline Bouvier was graduated from George Washington University, she started her first job in the fall of 1951 as the ""Inquiring Camera Girl"" for the Washington Times-Herald newspaper. Roving around the city, she took pictures of people she encountered, asked them questions on the issues of the day, and wove their answers into her newspaper column. She also covered the 1951 inauguration of Dwight D. Eisenhower and the 1953 coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

        One magazine; the homosexual viewpoint; volume thirteen, number 1 - 12, January - December 1965 (complete run)

      Los Angeles: One, Inc., 1965. Magazine. Twelve issue complete run, about 32p. each including covers, 5.5x8.5 inches, very good digest size magazines in stapled pictorial wraps. Several issues contain stories by Joseph Hansen and under his nom de plume James Colton. The 13th year of the homophile magazine. One, Inc., which took its name from Thomas Carlyle's statement that "A mystic bond of brotherhood makes all men one," was founded in LA in 1952 as a homophile organization with connections to the Mattachine Society. As the first pro-gay journal of its kind, it serves as an important source for pre-Stonewall homophile studies. In 1954 the US Post Office declared it obscene, leading to a four-year legal battle (chronicled in its pages) that concluded with a favorable decision as part of Roth vs. United States. Aside from its articles covering topics ranging from the Beatniks and Gay marriage to homosexuality and national security, One Magazine also featured poetry and short fiction by numerous prominent authors.

        Autgraph Letter, Signed

      Deya, Mallorca, Spain, 1965. Four pages, in ink, on four leaves of airmail flimsy letterhead. 1 vols. Folded for mailing, otherwise about fine. Half morocco slipcase. Four pages, in ink, on four leaves of airmail flimsy letterhead. 1 vols. Marked "Confidential," to "Dear Mr. [Edwin] Sy," then special collections curator at Lockwood Memorial Library: "Enclosed a number of photographs. The 'Robert Graves Day' rather embarrasses me because I have always tried to remain a private character, but, having a large family to support, I have been forced to make public appearances in U.S. & England. And the recent deaths of the four best known poets writing in English - Frost, Cummings, Eliot [,] Edith Sitwell -- has as it were sucked me upwards by the vacuum they created." He continues further in detail about his need to raise funds by way of another sale of his manuscripts, and his feelings of obligation to Lockwood. He has assembled "a collection of prose manuscripts to be sold by my friend Lawrence Wallrich ... Various buyers, from the coasts mainly, would have paid the money if the collection had included verse. But all the verse (which is the most important of course) has always gone to you ... Now since April 23 1964 I have written the nearest to poetry that I can claim to have come; and nothing else but an occasional article or lecture. The wad of poem drafts is about three inches thick. Wallrich suggests that I 'sweeten' the prose collection by including these; but I tell him that I should satisfy my moral debt by asking your permission ... What I should most like of course would be for you to buy the whole lot ...." He continues further about the possibilities of making such a sale come about ("There would be no hurry about payment so long as I have a contract to show my bank, to borrow on"), forthcoming publications, other possible sources of revenue ("...my Solomon and Sheba musical which Alex Cohen has signed a contract for and wishes to produce on Broadway"), etc. He concludes: "At 70 I feel in a way that I am just beginning. Whatever your reaction to this letter, I shall send you a contribution to the display -- the Army pack with my name and rank still on it, which I wore in World War I." Signed in full, "with best wishes to you all." Accompanied by an 8 x 10 press photograph of Graves, captioned on the verso by Sy, and a newspaper clipping about the exhibition marking Graves's "79th [sic] Birthday," corrected in ms. to '70'.

        Collection of Letters, Photographs, and Poetry from 18-Year-Old Marc Bolan

      1965. An archive of items from the earliest part of the career of legendary British rock star Marc Bolan of T-Rex fame when he was only 18 and about to release his debut single on Decca Records in 1965. Included are two copies of the typed lyrics for his first single, "The Wizard"; two Autograph Notes Signed; five pages of typed poems stapled into a booklet; six 8" x 10" photographs taken by Fiona Adam, two of which show Bolan during his first recording session with producer Jim Economides; and a program for a Tyrannosaurus Rex tour two years later. All fine except for a small tear on the last page of the stapled poetry, a tack hole in one photo, and a couple annotations in red ink in the tour book.The collection comes from the archive of London Sunday Times music critic Derek Jewell, who while writing an article about Economides, was made aware of a young musician he was working with. A publicity letter dated 10 September 1965 sent to Jewell mentions Bolan and explains, "You will be hearing more from me concerning this boy, whom I feel has an appeal beyond the normal pop market." Quite an understatement.The first ANS is written on a white sheet that reads in full: "Derek thought you might like to see some poems. hope you like them. see you soon, sincerely Marc Bolan. P.S. words to the wizard on green paper. thanks." The second ANS is on a blue sheet: "Derek hope you like the pictures. first two are of the recording session. see you soon [arrow pointing down] Marc Bolan." Both signatures use the umlaut over the "o" in his last name, which was a new pseudonym created just a month before (and that some speculate is a contraction of the words "Bob Dylan"). As stated, the letters are accompanied by two green sheets with the typed lyrics to "The Wizard" (here titled "The Wizard in the Wood"), along with a stapled packet of five sheets of poetry titled The Wizard, The Owl and The Big Black Cat. Both the lyrics and poems have been trimmed to the same size, likely by Bolan, who has signed both in type: "Marc Bolan. '65."Two of the six photographs show Bolan in the recording session, one up close with him concentrating on something out of sight, and the other in discussion with producers and engineers. The remaining images include two of Bolan sitting on a leopard rug by a miniature roulette wheel and holding a black cat, along with two outside shots of him dressed in a black pea coat. Bolan looks surprisingly young in each with uncharacteristically short hair. Accompanying the letters and photographs is a press release for Bolan's first single with his name spelled "Mark Bowland" and corrected in black marker; a program for the Tyrannosaurus Rex tour "The Lion and the Unicorn" in the Oak Forests of Faun in 1969; as well as a file of press releases about Economides, along with the typescript of a profile of Bolan written by Jewell.An amazing archive capturing Marc Bolan at the start of his career as a solo performer, shortly before the creation of T-Rex made him a legend. .

        BORDER - VOL. 1, NO. 2

      Fort Smith: Border Press, 1965. Quarto; mimeographed sheets, printed recto and verso and stapled into illustrated wrappers; [65pp]. Light wear and toning to the extremities, creasing along the lower front wrapper, with light foxing to top edge of text and beginning oxidation to staples; Very Good+. Scarce second issue of this short-lived poetry magazine published by Wayne Philpot's Border Press, containing the first appearance of Bukowski's poem 'I Keep Wanting To Cry About Everything But I Can't Get Started.' Additionally, he contributed the cover illustration entitled 'Sunday Afternoon in Heaven.' Philpot was quite taken with the quality of Bukowski's drawings, and in addition to using one to grace the first two covers of Border, he asked for several more with the intention of producing a limited edition book featuring his artwork. The projected title was 'Atomic Scribblings from a Maniac Age,' and while it was promoted and advertised, Philpot ultimately vanished with the drawings without a word. Quite uncommon in the trade, with OCLC locating 2 holdings for this issue (UC Santa Barbara & Kent State). Dorbin C267.

        In Cold Blood: A True Account of a Multiple Murder and Its Consequences

      New York: Random House, 1965 First edition, limited issue of 500 numbered copies. Signed by Capote on the limitation page. Publisher's black cloth, lettered in gilt; in the publisher's acetate dust jacket; housed in the publisher's red-orange slipcase. Book fine; dust jacket with a closed tear to spine head, minor chip to the spine tail. Overall, a near fine and attractive copy, signed by Capote. In Cold Blood is a fact-based account of the 1959 murders of the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas, and is one of Capote's most popular books. When police found the bodies of the Clutter parents and their two children, there was little to no evidence to suggest a motive or the perpetrators. After reading a brief article about the quadruple murder, Capote became fascinated with the mystery and traveled to Holcomb with his friend Harper Lee to investigate further. He conducted much research, which he used to write a narrative and realistic account for In Cold Blood. Although Capote insisted on the veracity of his book's factualness, subsequent research has shown that, while essentially a truthful account, In Cold Blood presents exaggerated characters and events in addition to at least one completely fabricated interaction. Regardless, the intriguing murder mystery and Capote's captivating writing make In Cold Blood a literary classic and a forerunner in the True Crime genre.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.
