        Sweet Life

      M. DuMont Schauberg Köln: M. DuMont Schauberg, (1966). First German edition. Hardcover. g. Large square quarto. [26],179pp. Black cloth with signature of artist stamped in white on front cover in original photographic dust jacket. Photographic endpapers. Fascinating pictorial account of Dutch photographer Ed Van der Elsken's 1960 trip to Asia and North America. The work is profusely illustrated with b/w reproductions of photographs focusing on the daily life of people in these countries. The artist succeeds in capturing the joy, as well as the hardship of its inhabitants. The work was published worldwide in 7 editions. "Van der Elsken hat weder sogenannte Sehenswürdigkeiten noch Landschaften fotografiert; das überläßt er anderen. Sie tauchen zwar in seinen Fotos auch auf, aber das Hauptaugenmerk des Fotografen wie seiner Kamera galt immer dem Menschen, seinem Leiden und Glück, der Vielfalt des Lebens, das er voll Verständnis und Teilnahme und gerade deshalb aufrichtig und ehrlich bis zur Brutalität notierte." Inside of top and bottom edge of dj repaired. Text in German. Creasing, chipping and closed tears on edges of dj. Minor sunning on head and tail of spine. Finger smudges on bottom corner of few pages, otherwise a tight copy with dj in fair to poor, book in very good to near fine condition. "Sweet Life is a sprawling, exuberant cornucopia, a preview of the pure stream-of-consciousness, machine-gun approach that would soon come with the Japanese Provoke photographers. And like the Provoke aesthetic, Van der Elsken's work has its dark and pessimistic undertones, although in Sweet Life bold, frantic energies predominate." (Parr/Badger, vol. I, p.255).

         “I guess that’s one thing I have in common with Harry Truman. I believe in sticking by my friends!”

      Typed Letter Signed “Dick,” one page, 7.25” x 10.5”. New York, March 25, 1966. To Earl Mazo. Written on Nixon’s personal stationery, with his law firm’s address. Two tiny staple holes in upper left. Fine condition. In full, “Your note of March 22 was appreciated but not at all necessary. I guess that’s one thing I have in common with Harry Truman. I believe in sticking by my friends!” It was well-known that Harry Truman did not have a high opinion of Richard Nixon. Truman said to writer Merle Miller in his “Oral Biography of Harry S. Truman” (1974), “He's one of the few in the history of this country to run for high office talking out of both sides of his mouth at the same time and lying out of both sides.” And, in 1951, then Senator Nixon had asserted that the Truman “administration has proved that it is utterly incapable of cleaning out the corruption which has completely eroded it and reestablishing the confidence and faith of the American people in the morality and honesty of their government employees.” During World War II, Earl Mazo (1919-2007) was a reporter for “Stars and Stripes” newspaper in Europe. After the war, he worked at newspapers in New Jersey and served one year in the Truman administration as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense. In 1951, he joined the “New York Herald Tribune,” working in New York until 1956, when he moved to Washington. In 1964, Mazo left the “Herald Tribune” for “The New York Times” as national political editor but after a year switched to “The Reader's Digest” where he was a roving correspondent. Earl Mazo was one of Nixon’s good friends. In 1959, Mazo had written “Richard Nixon: A Political and Personal Portrait.” Favorable to Eisenhower’s Vice President, the biography was reissued and updated in 1968 for Nixon’s presidential campaign. In 1960, Mazo was sure that Nixon had defeated Kennedy. From Mazo’s 2007 obituary in “The New York Times,” in part, “When John F. Kennedy won the 1960 presidential race against Nixon, Mazo felt strongly that the Democrats had stolen the election, telling the ‘Washington Post’ in 2000: ‘There's no question in my mind that it was stolen. It was stolen like mad. It was stolen in Chicago and in Texas.’ Tipped off by reporters in Chicago, Mazo went to the Windy City, obtained lists of voters in precincts that seemed suspicious and started checking their addresses. ‘There was a cemetery where the names on the tombstones were registered and voted,’ he recalled. ‘I remember a house. It was completely gutted. There was nobody there. But there were 56 votes for Kennedy in that house.’ “At the urging of Chicago Democrats, Mazo went to Republican areas downstate and looked for fraud there. He found it, but on a smaller scale than in Chicago. He then headed to Texas, where he documented similar Democratic electoral shenanigans. Mazo began writing what he and his editors envisioned as a 12-part series on election fraud. By mid-December 1960, he had published four of the parts, which were reprinted in papers across the country. Nixon called and asked Mazo to stop writing his series because the country couldn’t afford a constitutional crisis at the height of the Cold War. ‘I thought he was kidding, but he was serious,’ Mazo told the ‘Post.’ Failing to persuade Mazo, Nixon called the reporter’s bosses at the ‘Herald Tribune’ and implored them to stop running the series. The editors pulled him off the story.”

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

      New American Library NAL 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.
