Fleming Ian
London: Jonathan Cape, 1965. First edition. 8vo, in the publisher’s original black cloth lettered in gilt on the spine, in the original pictorial dustjacket. 221pp. A bright and pleasing copy, the dustjacket very attractive and fresh with a small amount of light rubbing to the edges, some dustiness to the rear cover. SCARCE. Jamaica provides the setting for this taut and psychological James Bond adventure. It was a bit of a departure in “Bond style” for Ian Fleming. This novel leans away from the complex plots, world-threatening super villains or cold war antics usually associated with the series and concentrates instead on James Bond himself. It is set in more simple surroundings and there is much on his relationship with the man he has been sent to assassinate. It is a book about James Bond the man, his inner thoughts, and his attempt to recover his “self” after being brainwashed to kill M. To do this he has to kill the most deadly assassin in the world, THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN. The reduction in the amount of action and glamour is easily made up for with the psychology and mind games leading up to the final gun fight.

In an equally fine dustjacket, not price-clipped, one minute spot on the top of the front flap and a small strip of browning on the top of the rear flap.

HERBERT, Frank
Philadelphia and New York: Chilton Books, 1965. First edition / First printing.. Hardcover.. A fine copy.. Winner of the Hugo Award in 1966 and the Nebula Award in 1965, Dune is a high spot of modern science fiction sought by collectors. Surprisingly available in the original cloth (and at one time remaindered by Chilton due to poor sales at their inhouse tent sales), this copy has been stunningly rebound with a custom design by Matt Jones at Green Dragon Bindery. With multicolored dunes and a moon in the night sky, gold gilt lettering 'DUNE' on the spine with Frank Herbert's name at the base, and endpapers that match the spirit of the book, it is an exceptional job all around. All edges gold gilt. A superior gift for the right person. The design has evoked a strong emotional response both in us and others who have read the book.

Olson, Charles:
Gloucester, MA. " Friday, January 15th" [1965].. Four pages. In ink, on rectos only, of octavo letterhead of "The Tavern." Folded for mailing, paperclip rust mark in upper margin (chiefly 1st and 4th leaves), very good. To friend and fellow writer, Paul Metcalf. A somewhat tardy letter of condolence to Metcalf upon the death of his mother, Eleanor, who had died the preceding April. Metcalf's father, Henry, had died in November of 1964, and Olson had written Metcalf at length shortly thereafter, and in that letter, asked that his sympathies be extended to Eleanor as well. Evidently, Metcalf then wrote Olson, telling him of his mother's death, precipitating this reply: "That is indeed the first word I have had of your Mother's death, and again I send you consolation...I should have known, when Harry [Metcalf] did...send me the book with his card and from a hotel but it didn't even occur to me, I so took it the other way about, that Woodlawn again was some Melville matter your mother had thought of...." He passes on thoughts to family members, and touches on other topics: "Would you, for my own puzzlement, tell me if anything did happen to those packages of books [that] were placed on your piazza for transfer to Jonathan? That is, I never could figure out how so many of [indecipherable] that Creeley item, and my own Mayan Letters, did [did not?] ever get any further...." He continues with accounts of his own travels and occasions when he was tempted to stop by and visit, and the toll on his energy and health that traveling now imposes.
