        Big As Life

      NY: Simon and Schuster, (1966). First edition of author's scarce second book. This copy is inscribed and signed by Doctorow on front endpaper, and even the inscription -- "To ____, a rare edition" -- attests to the scarcity of this title. Although not set in the future, Doctorow employs the science fiction device of a catastrophic event -- in this instance, the appearance of two gigantic figures in New York Harbor -- and the resultant human drama that unfolds in response to it. To date, Doctorow has not allowed this book to be reprinted. Faint strip of sunning along upper extremity of front cover, small spot to back cover, else a nearly fine copy in unfaded dust wrapper which shows light wear to lower corners.

        Typed Letters Signed

      Np: California. Soft cover. Fine. TWO TYPED LETTERS SIGNED BY RONALD REAGAN, one signed "Dutch" as governor-elect in 1966; the second signed "Ronald" as Governor in 1969. The first letter, dated December 9, 1966 on Reagan's personal stationery ("Ronald Reagan / Governor-Elect / State of California") is written to his cousin, Milford L. Smith, who had written to Reagan about a speech delivered by Mr. Smith's son, Dennis, at a recent Rotary Club meeting. The original printed notes for the meeting are included and mention that Dennis "made an outstanding presentation... It will be a long time before any of us will forget his statement: 'God started some of us off with two strikes against us but we stand firm in our knowledge that he will never let us strike out.'" Reagan, in his letter, enthusiastically responds, "You have great reason to be proud of Dennis. The line you sent me that he spoke at the Rotary Club is something to be remembered. When I see some of our beatniks protesting because life isn't being handed to them on a big enough platter, I'm going to remember this line." Signed "Dutch". The second letter included is dated September 4, 1969, on Reagan's California Governor's stationery and is addressed to Dennis, congratulating him on becoming "President of the Sterling-Rock Falls Toastmasters Club". Reagan writes: "I didn't want to miss the opportunity to congratulate you on your achievements-- it must be a great personal satisfaction to know of the impact your leadership has had on the community." Signed: "Ronald". California: 1966, 1969. Two 8.5 x 11 inch sheets (Reagan letterhead). With original envelope (with Reagan's return address) for the first letter. Neat folds, otherwise fine. Custom cloth presentation box available for $175; half-leather for $375.

        The Collected Papers of Paul A. Samuelson: Volumes 1-4

      Cambidge, MA: MIT Press, 1966. First edition of the first four volumes of the Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Samuelson collected papers. Octavo, original cloth, 4 volumes. Each are fine in very good to near fine dust jackets. Included are the contents pages in volumes 1,2, and 4. Paul Samuelson is one of the developers of both neo-Keynesian and neoclassical economics, the latter of which still dominates mainstream economics. He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for having written considerable parts of economic theory, and he is one of the ten Nobel Prize winning economists still signing the Economist's statement opposing the Bush tax cuts. One of Samuelson's many novel contributions was that he generalized and applied mathematical methods developed for the study of thermodynamics to the field of economics. His inspiration for doing so came, in part, from his mentor, polymath Edwin Bisdwell Wilson who was a former Yale student of the founder of chemical thermodynamics, Willard Gibbs. Samuelson, therefore, is a successful example of interdisciplinarity, and he combined these ideas in his magnum opus Foundations of Economic Analysis (1947).

        The Collected Scientific Papers of Paul A. Samuelson. Volumes I-V

      Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 1966-1986. First editions of each volume of the collected papers of Nobel Prize-winning economists papers. Octavo, 5 volumes, original cloth. Each are near fine in very good dust jackets. Each volume is signed by Paul A. Samuelson; volumes I & II are signed by fellow Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz, who served as editor of these volumes. "It is a measure of Professor Samuelson's preeminence that the sheer scale of his work should be so much taken for granted," observes a reviewer in the "Economist" who goes on to note that "a cynic might add that it would have been better for Professor Samuelson to write less merely to give others a chance to write at all."In fact, Samuelson's output, his "extraordinary mastery of methods, both mathematical and linguistic" (review of Volume 4 of "The Collected Scientific Papers"), have not diminished. Volumes 1 through 4 encompass more than 280 articles. The first two contain virtually all of Samuelson's contributions to economic theory through mid-1964; Volume 3 contains all the scientific papers written from mid-1964 through 1970, and the last volume brings his work up to through 1976. A very attractive set, scarce signed. Paul Samuelson is one of the developers of both neo-Keynesian and neoclassical economics, the latter of which still dominates mainstream economics. He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for having written considerable parts of economic theory, and he is one of the ten Nobel Prize winning economists still signing the Economist's statement opposing the Bush tax cuts.

        The Wrong Venus (First Edition, inscribed to John D. MacDonald)

      New York: New American Library (NAL), 1966. First Edition. First Edition. INSCRIBED by the author on the front endpaper to fellow mystery writer John D. MacDonald: "To John D. / With admiration / Charlie." A brief but eloquent inscription, linking two of the best hard-boiled mystery writers of a generation. & & Williams also wrote the screenplay for the 1968 film adaptation, "Don't Just Stand There!" starring Robert Wagner and Mary Tyler Moore. Williams is best known for his books "Dead Calm," "Aground," and "The Sailcloth Shroud." Like other hard-boiled authors, much of his output came in the form of paperback originals, and his books are seldom found inscribed, this being only the second such copy we have seen. On top of that, a stellar association. & & Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. A lovely copy.

        Haggadah for Passover

      Paris: Trianon Press, 1966. Folio. xxiv, 135pp. One of 292 copies, signed by the artist, Ben Shahn. With a Translation, Introduction and Notes by Cecil Roth. Illustrated with line drawings and Hebrew calligraphy by Shahn, as well as twelve full-page color plates and a double-page Menorah frontispiece. The frontispiece is an original signed lithograph printed from stones at the Imprimerie Mourlot, with additional colors and gold ink applied by hand through stencils. & & Without question this is one of the most beautiful books ever designed by an American artist. The twelve color plates celebrate the beauty and spirit of the Seder meal with its rich tradition of the Exodus from Egypt. In the center of each print Shahn has calligraphed a Hebrew passage from the service. This is surrounded by brightly colored vignettes portraying scenes from the text. At the close of the ritual, Shahn has illustrated a favorite folk song often sung after the Passover meal. "An Only Kid" is embellished with ten playful half-page line drawings printed in sanguine ink. In the Introduction, Shahn writes, "The making of this book has proceeded much more in the manner of a painting perhaps, than of a proper book. It reflects my memories of the Passover in my father&#39;s house. It reflects my early impressions and feelings; the images that were always evoked in my fancy by the majestic and meaningful ritual." This work ranks as one of the two most stunning modern Haggadahs, the other being that of Arthur Szyk.& & Unbound, as issued, in stiff glassine-covered wrappers lettered in gilt. The book and the portfolio are housed in a vellum-covered box with metal clasps, as well as the publisher&#39;s original shipping slipcase. The front cover of the vellum-covered box is stamped in gold with Shahn&#39;s calligraphy. A very fine copy.
