        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. .

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).

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 3, The Coming of War 1936 - 1939

      The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - sixteen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. This is the rarest, most keenly sought, and most prohibitive to acquire of the Official Biography Companion volumes.  There was just a single printing in England and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many Official Biography sets will forever do without.  The third is the rarest of the three Volume V Companions. Here is the British first edition, only printing, an excellent, near-fine plus example in a near-fine plus dust jacket.  The red cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and bright gilt.  Flaws are trivial - a bit of wrinkling at the spine ends and a hint of scuffing to the fore edge of the front cover.  The contents are immaculately bright and clean.  No spotting.  No previous ownership names or bookplates.  No soiling.  The red-stained top edge retains perfect, deep, uniform and entirely unfaded color.  The dust jacket is bright, clean, and unclipped, still bearing the original front flap price.  We note no tears or losses.  The only trivial flaw detected is a hint of wrinkling, primarily at the extreme spine ends, which virtually disappears beneath the removable, archival quality clear dust jacket protector.  Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage.  Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e3

        Jazz At The Philharmonic, Original German Concert Tour Program, 1966. SIGNED By Coleman Hawkins, T-Bone Walker, Benny Carter, Clark Terry, Louis Bellson & Teddy Wilson

      1966 - Jazz At The Philharmonic, Original German Concert Tour Program, 1966. SIGNED in ink at their respective full page, b&w photographs, by an uncommon grouping of jazz luminaries: saxophone giants, Coleman Hawkins and Benny Carter, drummer Louis Bellson, trumpeter Clark Terry, pianist Teddy Wilson and by blues great, T-Bone Walker. Norman Granz ended the JATP U.S. National Tours after his eighteenth tour in 1957, but continued sporadically to produce European concert tours during the 60's and even into the early 80's. This tour featured nine great jazz musicians and as perhaps something of an anomaly, Texas bluesman Walker, the godfather of electric blues guitar and composer of "Stormy Monday", who influenced several generations of guitarists, from B.B. King and Chuck Berry to Jimi Hendrix. In original stapled wraps, oblong quarto, 10" by 11", wraps are lightly soiled and rubbed, tiny tape repairs at hinge of centre page, else about near fine, clean and unmarked with no tears or creasing. Signatures in ink are near fine to fine without loss or fading. Striking b&w photographs by Rolf Ambor, text in German and English. A scarce and unusual signature grouping, includes some of the preeminent figures in jazz with the very uncommon autograph of blues great T-Bone Walker. J1443 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Dream

      The Dream is Churchill's revealing essay about an imaginary reunion with his father, Lord Randolph Churchill, in which Winston recounts the great world events that have happened since his father's death - without revealing his own role in them. First printed in The Daily Telegraph in 1966, The Dream was not published in individual book form until 1987. The International Churchill Society produced this leatherbound limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies. This was an elaborate production, printed on acid-free archival paper and bound in padded red leather with gilt decoration and the Churchill arms blind stamped on the front cover. All edges are gilt and there are head and footbands, as well as a satin page marker and silk endpapers. This is copy 196 of 500, a near-fine+ copy for collectors. The binding is clean and square, with only an insignificant hint of wear at the spine ends and two light, tiny marks on the covers. The contents are pristine with no markings. Accompanying the book is a letter to the original ower from The International Churchill Society providing background and details about the limited edition.

      The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, begun by Randolph Churchill and completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life. All eight main text volumes are now out of print, having been published between 1966 and 1988. Offered here is a premium, collector-grade set of all eight volumes. All eight volumes are first editions in fine condition in near-fine+ or better solid color dust jackets. The red cloth bindings of all eight volumes are excellent, with bright gilt and virtually no wear. All volumes have square corners except for one small bump to the upper front corner of volume VII. The contents of all eight volumes are clean and tight. The only trivial hint of spotting we find in the set is confined to the text block fore edge of Volume I. The sole previous ownership mark is a decorative bookplate on the Volume I ffep. The red topstain retains strong color with only light signs of sunning on seven of the volumes; appreciable sunning to the topstain occurs only on Volume V. The dust jackets are all crisp, clean, and bright. All eight dust jackets are unclipped, still retaining original prices on the front flaps. None of the jackets are faded. Even the notoriously-fade-prone III, IV, V, and VII dust jacket spines retain bright, original color. Moreover, the dust jackets show no losses or tears. Trivial hints of wear are confined to the extreme spine ends of Volume I-III. All dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Please note that this is a large and heavy set that will likely require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A301a-h.

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 1, The Exchequer Years 1922 - 1929

      The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - sixteen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. The Companion volumes for Volume V of the Official Biography are the most keenly sought and most prohibitive to acquire of all Official Biography volumes. There was only a single printing in England and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many Official Biography sets will forever do without.  Here is a truly fine copy of the first of the three Volume V Companions, the British first edition, only printing.  The white dust jacket is immaculate with absolutely no flaws to report - crisp, bright, clean, and complete with no discernible wear.  There were two prices on the dust jacket flap - an original introductory price and then a higher price specified after 1 February 1981. Both prices are intact on this unclipped dust jacket.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.  The book beneath is likewise truly fine and appears unread.  The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square, showing virtually no wear and retaining a nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, and bright spine gilt.  The contents are pristine.  There is no sign of the looseness or gutter breaks that so often occur with this massive volume.  There is no spotting and no previous ownership marks.  The fore and bottom edges are as clean and bright as the contents.  The sole trivial flaw noted is that the first half inch of topstain immediately adjacent to the spine is very slightly sunned.  The balance of the red topstain retains deep unfaded color.  Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e1.

        Winston S. Churchill: The Official Biography, full set of 8 volumes in uniform, solid color dust jackets

      The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, begun by Randolph Churchill and completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life. All eight main text volumes are now out of print, having been published between 1966 and 1988. Together they claim 19 inches of shelf space, weigh more than 28 pounds, and fill nearly 8,700 pages.  Offered here is a complete, jacketed set of all eight volumes. All eight volumes are British first editions in their original, uniform, solid color dust jackets.  All eight volumes are in near-fine plus or better condition, appearing unread.  All eight bindings are tight, clean, and square with virtually no wear.  The contents of all eight volumes are clean and bright.  We find no spotting or previous ownership marks of any kind in the set.  The unstained fore and bottom edges are likewise clean and bright.  The red-stained top edges all retain strong color, with only very slight sunning to a few.  The uniform, solid color dust jackets are all unclipped, varying from very good plus to fine condition.  Shelf presentation is quite good.  All eight dust jackets are complete with only slight wear at the head of the Volume II jacket spine and some abrasion along the lower Volume VII rear hinge.  Many of these solid color dust jackets proved highly susceptible to sunning of the spines.  Here minor sunning affects the jacket spines of only Volumes II & IV.  All eight dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Please note that this is a large and heavy set that will likely require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A301a-h.

        Death of a Naturalist

      Oxford University Press NY: Oxford University Press, 1966. Octavo. First American edition. One of 1,000 copies comprised of sheets from the first edition with a new title page. This is Heaney's first commercially produced verse collection, preceded by Eleven Poems, a pamphlet published by Queen's University in Belfast. The future Nobel Laureate's richly cadenced lyricism is firmly established in this auspicious debut, from the famous opening lines of "Digging" onward. This is a fine copy in green gilt-stamped cloth, in a dust wrapper that shows very little of the customary fading to the photo-sensitive colors on the spine and just a couple of tiny nicks to extremities.
