        Collection [Many Inscribed]

      1965-1999. A collection of books by the noted African-American expatriate writer. Himes left the U.S. for Paris, as did many of his black contemporaries, including Richard Wright and James Baldwin, to escape the pervasive racism of his home country. He met his second wife, Lesley, there and after a long courtship they married. As a mixed race couple they encountered prejudice and in 1969 they moved to Spain, where Chester died in 1984.

Himes wrote an autobiography, My Life of Absurdity, and the crime novelist and mystery scholar and historian James Sallis wrote a biography of him in 2000.

        Fundamentals of Nuclear Flight

      McGraw-Hill Book Co., New York 1965 - Signed "Best regards R W Bussard" on free front end paper. A fine unread copy with square corners. PO's name on front end paper. Jacket has edge wear with creases, chipping, and small tears. Otherwise VG in protective Brodart sleeve. In 1956, Bussard designed the nuclear thermal rocket known as project Rover. Bussard and R.D. DeLauer wrote two important monographs on nuclear propulsion, Nuclear Rocket Propulsion and Fundamentals of Nuclear Flight. In 1960, Bussard conceived of the Bussard ramjet, an interstellar space drive powered by hydrogen fusion using hydrogen collected with a magnetic field from the interstellar gas. Due to the presence of high-energy particles throughout space, much of the interstellar hydrogen exists in an ionized state (H II regions) that can be manipulated by magnetic or electric fields. Bussard proposed using a large magnet to "scoop" up the ionized hydrogen and funnel it into a fusion reactor, using the exhaust from the reactor as a rocket engine. Since it would pick up its fuel from space, there was no apparent upper limit to the speed such a craft could achieve. There is an upper limit set by unavoidable transverse radiation from the hydrogen captured in the fusion process. It appears the energy gain in the reactor must be extremely high for the ramjet to work at all; any hydrogen picked up by the scoop must be sped up to the same speed as the ship in order to provide thrust, and the energy required to do so increases with the ship's speed. Hydrogen itself does not fuse very well at all (unlike deuterium, which is rare in the interstellar medium), and so cannot be used directly to produce energy, a fact which accounts for the billion-year scale of stellar lifetimes. This problem was solved, in principle, according to Dr. Bussard by use of the stellar CNO cycle in which carbon is used as a catalyst to burn hydrogen via the strong nuclear reaction (Whitmire, D. "Relativistic spaceflight and the catalytic nuclear ramjet", Acta Astronautica, 2, 497-509, 1975). This cycle occurs in the sun but is more important in higher mass stars. The improvement over the weak PPI chain is a factor of 10^16 . Since the time of Bussard's original proposal, it has been discovered that the region surrounding the sun has much lower density of interstellar hydrogen than was believed at that time. This is of concern only because it requires larger scoops to collect the fuel required. Other studies (see Magnetic sail) have contended that drag will exceed thrust from such scoop designs. However, these neglected the momentum-conserving aspect of mirror capture and mirror reflection in the collection and exhaust streams of such systems. This theoretical device description was used with good understanding and elaboration on the advantages and limitations of such a drive in science fiction novels such as Poul Anderson's Tau Zero and Larry Niven's Protector and Known Space stories. A highly fictionalized variation of this concept, called the Bussard Hydrogen Collector or Bussard Ramscoop appears in Star Trek as part of the matter/antimatter propulsion system that allows Starfleet ships to travel faster than the speed of light. The ramscoops attach to the front of the warp nacelles (usually red in the Star Trek: The Next Generation-era stories), and when the ship's internal supply of deuterium runs critically low, they collect interstellar hydrogen and convert it to deuterium and anti-deuterium for use as the primary fuel in a starship's warp drive.

        [Press Release]: Selma, Alabama - March 7, 1965; 3 pm

      [1965]. The three-page summary of the unsuccessful first Selma to Montgomery March containing eyewitness accounts of the marchers being beaten and tear-gassed by local authorities. Two photomechanically reproduced folio sheets (white and yellow), one printed both sides. 3pp. Each sheet with three horizontal folds with tiny nicks at the folds and some scattered light creasing, very good. A detailed account of the first historic Selma to Montgomery March held on March 7, 1965 in which a group of roughly 600 Civil Rights marchers, led by Congressman John Lewis, then chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and Hosea Williams of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, were attacked with tear gas and billy clubs by police after crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The brutal beating of the peaceful marchers was broadcast nationwide tipping mainstream opinion in favor of the Civil Right Movement and helping President Johnson get the important Voting Rights Act of 1965 passed that summer.This document is a description of events compiled from various SNCC representatives on the scene in Selma as events unfolded, including Larry Fox, James Austen, and Billy Bailey. It begins at 3 p.m. with the marchers assembling and a description of who is leading the procession and how they are to act if their path is blocked. The marchers were stopped just after crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge by a group of local police, state troopers and deputized white citizens. The scene quickly descended into chaos: "State Trooper are throwing tear gas on them. A few are running back. A few are being blinded by tear gas. Somebody got hurt -- don't know who," with description of brutality against the marchers: "Police are beating people on the street. Oh, man, they're just picking them up and putting them in ambulances. People are getting hurt pretty bad." The accounts continue after marchers retreat over the bridge to the safety of the Brown Chapel Church. Witnesses describe men on horseback whipping people in the streets and how some fellow marchers are "ready to fight" and have "started throwing bricks at the State Troopers." The account ends with police blocking off the street in front of the church to restrict marcher's movement and with news from Good Samaritan Hospital that no one was shot but that "John Lewis is still in the emergency room and will have to stay over night."A frightening and vivid collection of first person accounts of a pivotal moment in the struggle for Civil Rights. OCLC locates no copies of this document and only one reference to it online from 1965 new story published in The Harvard Crimson. .

        Collection of 480 autogr. letters and postcards and 2 telegrams to Yvonne Thiess (1446 pp.) and 18 autogr. and ts. letters and carbon copies to other persons (40 pp.). Includes 44 autogr. and ts. letters by various writers to Frank Thiess (100 pp.) and 54 autogr. and ts. letters and postcards to Yvonne and Irene Thiess (81 pp.).

      Berlin, Bad Aussee, Bremen, Darmstadt, Hamburg, London, Vienna, and other places, 1918-1965. - "There never was a time when Frank Thiess was not controversial", the celebration publication in honour of the writer's 60th birthday states (Frank Thiess. Werk und Dichter, p. 30). Before the National Socialists seized power in 1933, the writer had enjoyed great success with his historical novels, and his literary importance was largely undisputed. His novel "Tsushima" (1937), translated as "The Voyage of Forgotten Men", was printed in several hundred thousand copies; Hemingway even included Thiess in his 1942 anthology "Men at War". After the War, Thiess coined the term "Inner Emigration" to describe the situation of artists who, as he did, remained in Germany during the Nazi years without personally agreeing with German politics of the time. Thiess argued that this attitude was superior to that of emigrants proper such as Thomas Mann, who supposedly had watched the destruction of Germany from "balcony seats". Although most of Thiess's works were seized by the Nazis and some were even burned publicly, his decision to remain in Germany and his bitter feud with Mann proved great obstacles when he tried to regain his old position in German literature after the War. - The present partial Nachlass, from the estate of his second wife, Yvonne Thiess, sheds light on his role during the last years of Nazi Germany and the postwar years until 1965. In these roughly 500 letters and postcards to his wife, 22 years his junior, he reflects extensively upon his life and work. While he has apparently resigned himself during the War years to being unable to provide for his family, he is baffled by the problems he encounters after the War, complaining of unfair treatment, feuds with other writers, and the difficulties in joining the literary scene of postwar Germany. - Detailed list available upon request. Frank Thiess. Werk und Dichter. Ed. by R. Italiaander (Hamburg, 1950). Cf. E. Hemingway, Men at War: The Best War Stories of all Times (New York, 1942). Y. Wolf, Frank Thiess und der Nationalsozialismus. Ein konservativer Revolutionär als Dissident (Tübingen, 2003).

        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."

        JETSONS ORIGINAL ART

      CARTOONS HANNA-BARBERA JETSONS ORIGINAL ART OFFERED HERE IS FABULOUS. HANNA BARBERA STUDIOS. CARTOONS. (HANNA-BARBERA) JETSONS ORIGINAL ART. Offered here is a fabulous watercolor circa 1965 used for a Spanish Language book about the Jetsons. Although there is no indication that this is from a Spanish book, it was purchased with other art from a Spanish edition. In Spanish, the Jetsons are known as "Los Supersonicos." When the Flintstones premiered in 1960, it became the first prime time cartoon series made specifically for TV and it is still popular today. It was also very successful in Spanish speaking countries (especially Mexico and Venzuela). The Jetsons was the space age version of the Flintstones. The colors in this artwork are vibrant and the image makes you smile. The image measures 10 x 13" done on art board 12 x 16. Sl. finger soil on edges, near fine. This is a great image of the whole Jetson Gang - George, his wife Jane and their daughter Judy are in a space ship hovering in mid air. Their son Elroy is sitting on a cloud next to Astro the dog. .

      Garden City: Doubleday, 1965. Book. Fine. No Binding. Signed by Author(s). "REPENT HARLEQUIN!" SAID THE TICKTOCKMAN. Fine Long Unbound Galleys. Signed Letter of Provenance. Long unbound galleys for first hardcover appearance (Nebula Award Stories 1965 edited by Damon Knight) of the short story "'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman." Signed. Five galley sheets (the complete story) for one of Harlan Ellison's most famous short stories and one of the ten most reprinted modern American short stories. The author's own copy of the galleys, VERY POSSIBLY UNIQUE. The sheets show one fold each, brown otherwise fine. with a photograph of the author taken c. 1964, about the time he wrote "'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman." Fine. WITH a signed, full-page typed letter of provenance from the author, stating in part: "The appended congeries of materials come straight out of my file labeled 'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman. They are various tearsheets, page proofs, galleys and incunabula accrued through the years. . . and if you ask me to codify the sources from whence came these curiousities, I must ask that you NUHJ Mr. Levin for same. I'm merely the source of this paper file, he's the expert. That's why he gets the big bucks. Attested to, and sworn in blood, [signed, in what we hope is really brown ink) Harlan Ellison." Fine. The five galley sheets, photograph and letter of provenance are very handsomely framed together under glass, employing a seven-window (opening) linen mat with a black bead (liner). The frame measures approximately 5 x 2 1/2 feet. Three remaining items from the "Repent, Harlequin" file are contained in two envelopes hidden behind a trap door in the back of the frame. Shipping this quite large piece requires extra expense in professional art crating, and probable shipping by FedEx..
