        THE TIME OF THE HERO

      New York City, NY: Grove Press, 1966. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Grove Press, 1966. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 409 pages. The author&#39;s debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of the Latin-American Boom, it is now considered a late-modern classic. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now very rare. Presents Mario Vargas Llosa&#39;s prodigious first novel. The original title in Spanish is "La Ciudad y Los Perros" ("The City And Its Dogs") , a brutal and scathing title that in the absence of context, could also be taken literally and thereby misunderstood. Vargas Llosa&#39;s novel incorporates penetrating insights about war, love, fraternity, and humanity yet is deeply rooted in Peruvian time and place. Mario Vargas Llosa is the writer/intellectual/philosopher par excellence among the Latin-American geniuses of the so-called Boom: He refuses to be categorized, labeled, and reduced by ideology, whether it is Fascist conservatism, political correctness, or Leftist academicism, what he has condemned as "authoritarianism of the Left and the Right". He considers himself an heir to the great European cultural tradition yet his work is firmly grounded in Latin America&#39;s (not just his native Peru&#39;s) history and mythology. His aesthetics and literary practice - Vargas Llosa has embraced and appropriated every literary genre - prompted Roberto Bolano, his greatest successor, to consider him an inescapable influence, among a handful of others, on contemporary Latin-American literature. That is to say, to be a Latin-American writer is to become a Classical master of language and a Modernist artist, writing in language of the highest quality and reinventing literary form and convention at the same time. Literary genres are inventions of a particular culture&#39;s idea of imagination and storytelling, "templates" that Vargas Llosa transforms into "poetic tales" (in Harold Bloom&#39;s brilliant phrase) . "He has helped evolve the art of the narration" (Nobel Prize Committee) . "Literature shouldn&#39;t be secluded, provincial, or regional. It should be universal even if it has deep roots in one place" (Mario Vargas Llosa) . An absolute "must-have" title for Mario Vargas Llosa collectors. <b><i> This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Mario Vargas Llosa. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. Vargas Llosa signed on top of the page, making his signature that much more prominent. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. It is the single most beautiful copy of the book we have ever seen. Among "Boom" writers, Mario Vargas Llosa has been grossly under-valued for the longest time even though he rarely does public signings. The collectible value of his books will not only keep but keep going up. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the Cervantes Prize, awarded to the greatest living writers in Spanish by the Spanish Government, in 1994. Winner of the Jerusalem Prize in 1995. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2010. One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MARIO VARGAS LLOSA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374520216.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Richard Elman

      December 16 [1966]. Six pages of text, handwritten on both sides of three pages, a tirade against Random House/Pantheon&#39;s "rotten & inexcusable" failure to promote Elman&#39;s book (The Poorhouse State) blended with parallel fears over Random House&#39;s coming launch of his own book (Hell&#39;s Angels). Thompson covers four possible fronts (Aspen, Denver, San Francisco, L.A.) where he might be able to get press for Elman, pausing occasionally to take swipes at Random House, to note that he himself hasn&#39;t yet read Elman&#39;s book ("maybe it&#39;s rotten & inexcusable too - eh?"), and to suggest that he and Elman team up and join the Oklahoma City Police Department. He promises to make efforts on Elman&#39;s behalf but warns that all he can do is mail the books off and "hope for the best. I can&#39;t be too hard-nosed with them because I don&#39;t want to be black-listed before they have a go at mine" (Hell&#39;s Angels, which was officially published the following month). He concludes by asking Elman to do what he can to get Hell&#39;s Angels reviewed: "My entire financial future hangs in the balance." Signed, "HST." A noteworthy letter for a number of reasons, but most importantly because Elman was the person who was most directly responsible for getting Hell&#39;s Angels published. In his memoir, Namedropping, Elman writes about meeting Thompson, who had called him on the basis of their having a mutual friend. After taking Elman on a scary motorcycle ride around Central Park and New York City, Thompson showed him the manuscript of Hell&#39;s Angels, told him their mutual friend had said that he, Elman, had connections in publishing and asked if he could find someone who would be interested in publishing this. Elman had written for The Nation so he showed the piece to Carey McWilliams, the editor of the magazine, and McWilliams printed an excerpt from it in The Nation soon after, the first publication of any portion of the book. Then Elman took the manuscript to his own editor at Pantheon, Sara Blackburn, who loved the book and decided to offer Thompson a contract. At the sales meeting to discuss it, however, Jason Epstein, the editor at Random House, got so excited by the project that he took it from Blackburn and Pantheon and made it a Random House book, offering Thompson a larger contract than Pantheon had (Pantheon was at the time part of the Random House group of publishers, which also included Alfred A. Knopf). A historic letter, at a critical point in Thompson&#39;s career, which sheds light on Thompson&#39;s and Elman&#39;s earlier relationship, when Elman helped Thompson get his work noticed: here the tables are turned, and Elman is seeking Thompson&#39;s help, although Thompson, who still has not yet had a book published, can do little to reciprocate. 500 words; writ large in red pen, on gray paper, folded in thirds for mailing, with a crimped, short tear at the middle of the right margin; near fine. .

        11:02 Nagasaki

      Tokyo: Shashindojin-sha, 1966. Small abrasion to the rear end paper where a Japanese bookseller&#39;s ticket was removed, former owner&#39;s blindstamp, else fine in photo-illustrated boards and original cardboard slipcase, lightly discolored. (Lacking the original acetate overlay.). First Edition. Small quarto. Insert laid in. One of the cornerstone books of postwar Japanese photography. In this brilliantly edited volume, Tomatsu moves away from a purely representational depiction of the horrors of Japan&#39;s defining moment, focussing equally on the abstract tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki rather than just human deformity. In many ways, the cover image of a watch stopped cold at 11:02 is more chilling than the profile of a scarred bride on her wedding day. (Parr / Badger, v1, 276-277; Open Book 226-227; Auer 454).
