        SOME/THING 3 (VOL.2, NO.1 - WINTER, 1966)

      New York: David Antin & Jerome Rothenberg, 1966. First Edition. Octavo; illustrated wrappers; [80]pp; illus. Tiny stain to crown, faint foxing to lower edge of textblock, with a faint smudge and 1cm separation to lower perforation on front wrapper; tight, Very Good+ or better. Housed in a custom plexiglass case. Third issue of Antin and Rothenberg's short-lived poetry journal, devoted to "A Vietnam Assemblage." The issue featured contributions by Antin, Carol Berge, Charles Bukowski, Robert Duncan, Allen Ginsberg, Anselm Hollo, Denise Levertov, Jackson Mac Low, Gerard Malanga, and others. The cover for this issue was designed by Andy Warhol, printed on sheets of real glue-backed stamps, perforated and made for tearing and pasting. Though initially Warhol wanted to design the cover using a Vietcong flag, Antin encouraged him to appropriate the pro-war slogan "BOMB HANOI!" and put it on the cover as a button. An attractive copy of a fragile publication. Clay & Phillips p.118-119; Dorbin C343.

        5 Typed Letters Signed ("Bill Saroyan" and "Bill") to his agent H.N. Swanson ("Swanie")

      Fresno, Califronia, 1966. 5 pp in all, typed rectos only. 4to (11 x 8-1/2 inches); two sheets cropped. Faint creases; secretarial marks in red ink. Corrections, cancellations, and annotations in Saroyan's hand. 5 pp in all, typed rectos only. 4to (11 x 8-1/2 inches); two sheets cropped. Saroyan, still bitter about the treatment he received from M.G.M. during the production of his screenplay THE HUMAN COMEDY, warily discusses the possibility working in Hollywood again on new works POINTY SHOES and MAMA GIRL, I LOVE YOU: "Now, Metro phoned me and wanted to make a deal but I drove them off, because Mayer cheated me on The Human Comedy, and because the new mob there refused to release TV rights in the book to me, and so on and so forth. Drove them off by saying I wanted a percentage and a quarter of a million dollars. O.K., the hell with it: now, though, may just be the time to make a deal on this novel." Unfortunately, the project stalls. From a later letter, included here: " ... I am presuming POINTY SHOES is dead, and good enough." In other letters, Saroyan investigates the logistics of making a film documenting his native town: "I have got to make me a little 5-hour movie about Fresno before the best part of it is torn down and forgotten, and that's happening right now." He discusses current and upcoming projects, mulls over various film and TV possibilities, but is still rankled by his old troubles with M.G.M.-" ... that stupid M.G.M. somehow legally got its sticky fingers on The Human Comedy TV rights, too, and has prevented me from making all kind of excellent deals on the property." Written in an easy, chatty style, these letters reveal a writer frustrated by past injustice but nevertheless determined to maintain his prodigious output while pushing for a new break.

        Crying of Lot 49

      1966. PYNCHON, Thomas.The Crying of Lot 49.Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, (1966).First edition of Pynchon?'s second novel, his ?"haunting… tryst with America?" (New York Times), an especially fine copy in scarce original dust jacket."The wealth of invention is overwhelming… Pynchon's trick of sitting the action on the edge of absurdity without letting it fall off is carefully performed" (Parker, 20th Century Novel, 428). Crying of Lot 49 achieves "a haunting sequence of imagined human situations, typical and pathetic ones, fused with the particularized power that shows Pynchon's own obsession with the encoded messages of the American landscape. What is also noticeable… is that the major character is really Pynchon himself, Pynchon's voice with its capacity to move from the elegy to the epic catalogue… But then, how else should one imagine a tryst with America? And that is what this novel is" (New York Times).Mead A2.A fine copy.

        The Legend of Hobey Baker [Signed]

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1966. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good +. A Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed, light wear to bottom corners), in a Very Good + dust jacket, CONTEMPORARILY INSCRIBED, SIGNED, AND DATED BY JOHN DAVIES on the front free endpaper as follows: "Christmas, 1966 // For Andy Ramseur / a future Hobey Baker / at least according to his grandfather // Best Wishes // John Davies". Hobey Baker, one of the greatest athletes of the early 20th Century and considered by many to be America's first star hockey player, played both hockey and football at Princeton University which named it hockey facility, the Hobey Baker Memorial Rink, after him. An inductee in the Hockey Hall of Fame (located in Toronto, Canada), Baker was the only American in the Hall's 1945 inaugural class of nine players, the others having been Canadian (one of which, Chuck Gardner, was born in the UK). America's National Collegiate Athletic Association annually awards the Hobey Baker Award to the individual voted that year's best collegiate hockey player. [The United States Hockey Hall of Fame was not founded until 1973 and Baker was one of it's initial inductees. Baker also was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1975.] One of Baker's many admirers, F. Scott Fitzgerald -- who enrolled at Princeton during Baker's senior year, described Baker as "an ideal worthy of everything in my enthusiastic admiration, yet consummated and expressed in a human being who stood within ten feet of me" and modeled his character Allenby -- of his debut novel "This Side of Paradise" -- on Hobey Baker. After graduation, Baker worked for J. P. Morgan Bank until he enlisted in the US Army Air Service, was eventually promoted to commander of the 141st Aero Squadron and was awarded the Croix de Guerre by the French government. He died in 1918 after a recently repaired plane he was testing at his own insistence crashed. When he was pulled from the wreckage, his orders to return home to the US were found in his jacket pocket. In 1962, George Frazier wrote of Baker "he haunts a whole school, and from generation unto generation. You say 'Hobey Baker' and all of a sudden you see the gallantry of a world long since gone." Copies of the book in collectable condition are not common and copies signed by John Davis are, in our experience, as scarce as hen's teeth. A Very Good + copy, SIGNED BY JOHN DAVIES. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

        The Magus.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1966. First edition of the author's most well-known work. Octavo. Signed by John Fowles on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. A superior example. The Magus was published by in the United Kingdom in 1966 and in the United States by Little, Brown and Company the same year. An instant success, the Sunday Telegraph called it a major work of mounting tensions in which the human mind is the guinea-pig... Mr Fowles has taken a big swing at a difficult subject and his hits...are on the bull's eye'." The Magus was quickly adapted into film starring Michael Cain, a "deliciously toothsome celebration of wanton story-telling... Before one quite realises what is happenings, one finds oneself no less avid for meanings and no less starving amid a plethora of clues than is Nicholas himself" (Sunday Times). The Magus was awarded inclusion in the Modern Library 100 Best Novels in 1999, and in 2003, the novel was listed at number 67 on the BBC's survey The Big Read.
