Included here is a 17-page TYPED MANUSCRIPT (incomplete) from 1966 on Arnold Bennett with ink corrections by Braine along with a 3-page TYPED MANUSCRIPT for the introduction to the piece. Both are accompanied by letters from Braine SIGNED as John, one in holograph and the other typed. Also included is an 11-page AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT SIGNED of a television play titled WE OUGHT TO WEAR A LABEL, with a letter of introduction by Braine. There is a two-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED to Peter (also the recipient of the Arnold Bennett material) regarding a series on British television called BEST SELLERS, "a series about books, and it's interesting precisely because it doesn't talk down to the viewer." Finally there is a 6-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED on three sheets with a huge signature filling about half a page. It is addressed to Paul Furness and comes with the original envelope. Braine mostly discusses pubs. In part: "None of the pubs I used in Bradford and district were as far as I know political meetingplaces. Tho' The Mark of Erin in Westgate where I was born was once reputed to be an IRA hangout.

"In late October, 1964, in a small bus equpped for camping [Ogburn] set out alone for upper Maine. From Mount Desert Island, he traveled southward with the season, pausing for intensive explorations of Cape Cod and Nantucket, of the Long Island beaches, and of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands off the Virginia shore, until he reached the outer banks of North Carolina. The result is a book of eloquence and vitality, of depth and beauty, and one to which the reader will return again and again." [from the jacket]. This is Ogburn's Classic & an important book in the Natural History genre. Here, he explores and ruminates upon the various Atlantic seacoasts always noting the austere beauty of the sea in winter. An extraordinary vibrant & well informed work, a mixture of scientific fact & sweeping epiphany. Not as well known as Henry Beton's 1928 clasic, The Outermost House but certainly on a par. Very uncommon signed. Custom embossed dark blue cloth slipcase in very fine condition.. Signed by Author. First Edition.

        Quatre billets autographes signés à propos du plateau d'Albion (20 avril 1966 et 1er mai 1966)

      1966. Lettre. Très bon. Couverture souple. Ed. originale. 20 avril et 1er mai 1966. 4 billets autographes in-8 oblongs confiés à Christian Maurel, le premier adressé à Lili (sa gouvernante aux "Busclats", sa maison de L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, 7 lignes), le second à "Bruno" (9 lignes), le troisième (6 lignes) et le dernier (11 lignes) destinés à Christian Maurel (6 lignes). Chaque billet est signé. Muni des trois premiers billets, Christian Maurel va à L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue pour aider René Char dans son combat contre l'installation de missiles à tête nucléaire sur le plateau d'Albion (probablement pour écrire des articles dans l'Express). Dans le premier billet, Char informe Lili que Maurel pourra "coucher et travailler dans la maison durant son séjour à L'Isle". A Bruno, Char présente Maurel comme "un ami qui vient pour nous aider au sujet de notre affaire d'Albion" et lui demande de lui "faciliter la tâche" en le faisant rencontrer "entr'autres Marceau Seignon [maire de Bonnieux dans le Vaucluse]". Dans le troisième billet, Char indique lapidairement qu'il faut voir Marceau Seignon et Heloïs Castor, maire de Simiane (Basses-Alpes). Dans le dernier billet, daté du 1er mai, il remercie Maurel pour son aide : "merci pour le bien réel que vous avez fait là-bas, que vous allez faire ici. "Mains qui s'étreignent ne pèsent rien", me disait Eluard autrefois avant quelque combat. Simplement et sincèrement à vous, en ce combat douteux mais qui doit être mené." Une bien mystérieuse affaire, avec un émissaire et des lettres de recommandation... René Char replonge en pleine Résistance. En février 1966, il avait composé avec Picasso, une affiche-poème à ce sujet, "La Provence point Oméga" : "Que les perceurs de la noble écorce terrestre d'Albion mesurent bien ceci : nous nous battons pour un site où la neige n'est pas seulement la louve de l'hiver mais aussi l'aulne du printemps. Le soleil s'y lève sur notre sang exigeant et l'homme n'est jamais en prison chez son semblable. À nos yeux ce site vaut mieux que notre pain, car il ne peut être, lui, remplacé." Mais le poète perdit ce combat-ci malgré l'assistance de son jeune ami, puisque les missiles nucléaires furent effectivement installés au plateau d'Albion de 1967 à 1999..

        The Fixer

      New York: FSG, 1966. First edition of the author's fourth novel that went on to win the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine price clipped dust jacket that shows light wear to the spine. Signed by the author on the half title page. Published by FSG in 1966, The Fixer was described for its fashionable prose by Elizabeth Harding at Vogue as "[b]rilliant [and] harrowing . . . Historical reality combined with fictional skill and beauty of a high order make [it] a novel of startling importance." And Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything is Illuminated, "[w]hat makes it a great book, above and beyond its glowing goodness, has to do with something else altogether: its necessity...This novel, like all great novels reminds us that we must do something." The Fixer "deserves to rank alongside the great Jewish-American novels of Saul Bellow and Philip Roth" (The Independent).

        AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT: 1966 HANDWRITTEN NOTES FOR CASEY STENGEL'S HALL OF FAME INDUCTION SPEECH

      (1966). Manuscript. Writing dark and clear. Very Good and exceptional. A 2-1/2 page handwritten manuscript on three sheets containing Stengel's notes for his induction speech to the Hall of Fame in 1966, an honor he shared that year with Ted Williams, who gave one of the most important speeches in baseball history when he asked the Hall to open its doors to Negro Leagues players. Stengel, whose career began as a player in 1912 and ended as a manager in 1965, was one of the most colorful figures in the game, noted for his twists of language and truisms such as "Good pitching beats good hitting, and vice versa." As manager of the Yankees, he won 7 World Series out of 9 appearances in 12 years. Mickey Mantle in his Hall of Fame speech said that his father and Stengel were responsible for his success. He also managed the 1962 Mets, the worst team in modern baseball. After their final loss that season, Casey told his players, "This has been a team effort. No one or two guys could have done all this." The notes begin "Hall of Fame & Museum, Cooperstown, N.Y., July 25th 1966," mention "Ted Williams, perfect swing, can hit distance, greatest batter hitting L. handed in my experience in the American League." He cites many players: Ruth, Cobb, Dimaggio, Mantle, often with a comment, and lists the names of all the original inductees. He mentions Abner Doubleday, One-Cat Two-Cat or Rounders, "girls teams 1890-1, Dresses with bloomers," and much more. These pages may have been on the podium with Casey when he accepted baseball's greatest honor. In any event, they are important and historic.
