        [Manuscript]: "[The Battle of] Peyton Place" [published in] TV Guide and "Mia Farrow" [published in] The Saturday Evening Post

      1965. Two typed manuscripts about Mia Farrow and her breakout TV series, Peyton Place, along with several internal memos, and a Typed Letter Signed from the author. The first manuscript is titled "Peyton Place" but was published by the January 16, 1965 issue TV Guide as "The Battle of Peyton Place." It consists of 19 single typed sheets typed rectos only with a few scattered holograph corrections and a penciled notation, presumably by an editor, stating "Raw Copy Unedited." The second manuscript, titled "Mia Farrow," consists of twelve typed sheets typed rectos only with holograph corrections and a penciled note, stating "Raw unedited copy, 8/26/65," accompanied by two copies of the manuscript stapled at the corners. All fine. Our research could not determine if the second manuscript was ever published in its entirety but sections of it were certainly used in the TV Guide article. Included is a Typed Letter Signed from the author to a Saturday Evening Post editor noting revisions made to the Farrow story, and most interesting, five pages of internal Saturday Evening Post memos commenting on the story, all fine. The memos provide a window into story development and the opinions of the editors on reader interest, the author, Farrow's "vapid personality," and her future husband, Frank Sinatra, who is referred to as "the old gash master." .

        Madrid Suite, Number 7 [G]

      Hollander Workshop, New York 1965 - ORIGINAL LITHOGRAPH BY ROBERT MOTHERWELL, one of only 100 signed and numbered by Motherwell. "For this series, one of many works with a Spanish theme, Motherwell recalled an experience he had while honeymooning in Madrid with Helen Frankenthaler in 1958. He had pinned drawing paper on the hotel walls and like the way the texture of the wall transferred itself to the sheets as he drew. To re-create this experience, Motherwell taped transfer paper to the spackled walls of [printer Irwin] Hollander's studio and rubbed the sheets with lithographic crayons to achieve the desired transfer of texture" (Wye and Figura, Artists & Prints: Masterworks from the Museum of Modern Art). As Motherwell's printer and collaborator Hollander later explained: "These are rubbings! a transfer of feeling from Madrid to Tenth Street. So by putting a French transfer paper on the wall and taping it, he could take litho crayons and rub. Again, using five grades of pencils, five grades of crayons, five grades of blacks, five grades of washes, he could explore and touch the surfaces. And he did it ten times. Those things sold out. People really loved this kind of symbol. Rich blacks and whites-they're the most desired. These are so rare that only a few people have these. It was just like play. They have to be looked at and spoken about very differently-that's the essence of them. Here is the simple language of Motherwell, coming from the hand, the wrist, very freely, innocently, seeing the surface of the wall, not imposing his own will. He's still working within a grade of five, which is pure language. The language of the greases" (quoted in Belknap, The Prints of Robert Motherwell: A Catalogue Raisonne).

Introduction by Gregor Piatigorsky. All 90 games annotated with an index of openings. Jacqueline was born in Paris, France, to the famed Rothschild banking family. A nurse taught her to play chess at an early age, when Jacqueline was recovering from a childhood illness. In her 1988 memoir, Jump in the Waves, she wrote that her nurse, Miss Coque, told Jacqueline that: ¿¿with a chess set, it is impossible to be bored.¿ More than a salvation from dullness, the game soon became both a passion and a refuge to Jacqueline. Though she wrote of feeling neglected by her parents and oppressed by a nanny during her childhood, chess offered her an opportunity to forge her own identity independent of her famous family name. In 1937 Jacqueline married Gregor Piatigorsky, a world-renowned cellist. The two immigrated to the United States with their daughter Jephta at the outset of World War II, first settling in Elizabethtown, New York, where their son Joram was later born. Though she had not received any formal chess training, her desire to compete led her to participate in correspondence chess tournaments sponsored by Chess Review. After another series of moves, Jacqueline and her family settled in Los Angeles, California. There, Gregor joined the faculty of the music department at UCLA, while Jacqueline became further immersed in the world of chess. At an auction, she met International Master Herman Steiner, who after learning of her skill, encouraged her to compete in tournaments over the board. He was instrumental in the flourishing of her playing career on the national level, recommending that she be invited to the 1951 U.S. Women¿s Chess Championship. After his death in 1955, Jacqueline took over the management of his chess club, the Hollywood Chess Group, and renamed it the Herman Steiner Chess Club in his honor. Jacqueline soon rose to the top of the field of women¿s chess and participated in the U.S. Women¿s Championships six times in the 1950s and 1960s. Her best result occurred in 1965, when she won second place behind Gisela Gresser. She also defeated her rival, Woman International Master Mona May Karff in such a captivating manner that the New York Times printed their game. Jacqueline took part in another historic first for women¿s chess in 1957, representing the United States in the inaugural Women¿s Chess Olympiad in Emmen, the Netherlands, with teammate Gisela Gresser. Jacqueline played on second board, and the team won a bronze medal in the historic competition. Later that same year, she took her first step in the arena of chess promotion, serving as the chairperson for the U.S. Women¿s Chess Championship, which was held in Los Angeles and sponsored by the Herman Steiner Chess Club. During the mid-to-late 1960s, Jacqueline participated in tournaments less frequently. However, over the course of the same decade, she dedicated herself more fully to chess promotion, first co-sponsoring a match between former child prodigy Grandmaster (GM) Samuel Reshevsky and rising star GM Bobby Fischer. Also sponsored by the American Chess Foundation, the match was held in both New York and Los Angeles. The match ended prematurely over a disagre [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
