        Old Maids Remember (2 Signed Typed Letters glued in)

      Peter Davies, London 1966 - A very good copy bound finely woven black paper-covered boards. Stamped brightly in gold on the spine. Vertical abrasion strips on the front and rear paste-downs where the dust jacket was once taped down. Name and date (Dorothy Bates/ Sept. 1966) in orange marker on the front endpaper. The jacket is good only with several closed tears, soiling, and beige tape strips along the edges of the flaps. This copy, however, has two typed letters signed by "Daphne du Maurier" and Daphne du Maurier Browning", respectively; the first is glued onto the title page, and the second is a full-page letter glued to page ix just after the Acknowledgments page. The first letter on the title page is 7 typed lines signed in ink: ‘Do ask Mr. Robinson of the Sowerby Bridge Public Library if he has a copy of my Fowey sister’s book, just out, called "Old Maids Remember." It is delightful, and you would love it, full of glimpses of our younger days, and amusing photographs of the three of us. With best wishes always, Yours very sincerely "Daphne du Maurier" (blue ink) The second letter after the acknowledgments is 17 typed lines signed in blue ink: "Daphne du Maurier Browning": "So glad you liked my sister’s book. I shall tell her when she next comes to lunch. She comes once a week, generally on Sundays, but she is a much busier person than I am, on her parish council, Conservative committees, good works, and does a tremendous amount locally. I love to fancy the three of us are a bit Bronte-ish as sisters, with Angela as Charlotte, myself the solitary one as Emily meeting no one (!) and Jeanne the youngest, who became Catholic, and draws so well, and is musical, is Anne! Keep up the sleuth-work over the Branwell note-book, and think of me next week surrounded by grandchildren and no doubt slipping away in to the woods now and again to get some peace! Yours very sincerely, "Daphne du Maurier Browning" (in bright blue ink) Angela du Maurier (1904 – 2002) was an English novelist who also wrote two volumes of autobiography, It's Only the Sister(1951) and Old Maids Remember. She was the sister of Daphne du Maurier. The eldest of three daughters of the famous actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and actress Muriel Beaumont (maternal niece of William Comyns Beaumont), she was born in St Pancras, London. Her grandfather was the author and Punch cartoonist George du Maurier, who created the character of Svengali in the novel Trilby. Although three years older than her better known sisterDaphne, she outlived her by thirteen years. Originally aspiring to follow the family tradition of acting, she planned to be an actress and spent two seasons on the stage. She played Wendy Darling alongside both Gladys Cooper and Dorothy Dickson as Peter Pan. She worked on the land inCornwall during the war and travelled extensively in Europe. She later turned to writing, with the release of her earlier works coinciding with the publication of her sister's Rebecca and Jamaica Inn. Her works of fiction include The Road to Leenane, Pilgrims by the Way, The Perplexed Heart, Reveille and Treveryan. She lived at Ferryside, the family house in Cornwall, for most of her life. She died inWandsworth, London, aged 97. (Wikipedia) First Edition with "First Published 1966" on the copyright page and no subsequent printings listed.

        [THE VERY FIRST MASTER AND MARGARITA] Master i Margarita. Roman [i.e. Master and Margarita: A Novel]

      [In:] Moskva... #11, 1966; #1, 1967. Moscow: Gosudarstvennoe izdanie khudozhstvennoi literatury, 1966-1967. Pp. 6-127 (#11, 1966), pp.56-144 pp. (#1, 1967). 24,9x16 cm. In two issues, both in original printed wrappers, with marbled edges. Very good, spines neatly restored (but without lettering «Moskva», year and # of the issue on them), close tear of p.30 in issue #11 (restored), two close tears of lower margins in issue #1(restored), hardly noticeable restoration of two tiny tears of the front cover (#1). Scarce on the market. The first printed appearance of one of the most influential novels of the 20th century. Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940) started to work on his novel in 1928 but stopped writing four weeks before his death, leaving the novel with some unfinished sentences and loose ends. His wife made several attempts to publish the novel but was able to do it only during Khrushchev's Thaw. For the first time the novel was printed in the magazine «Moskva» (i.e. Moscow) with a preface by Konstantin Simonov, afterword by Abram Vulis. It was unexpected, because the magazine was not considered at that time a stronghold of free-thinking. The most liberal magazine of the time was «Noviy mir» (i.e. New World) by Tvardovsky that famously printed Solzhenitsyn. «Moskva» was quite the opposite of that but the circulation of it was 150 thousand, and it is understandable that the novel after that became widely known. Publication was made possible thanks to Vulis' monograph where he presented Bulgakov as a very Soviet writer. Vulis was ordered an afterword. According to the unwritten rules of the time, such publications should have been prefaced with ideologically correct comments. This was done not so much to enlighten the reader as to dull the vigilance of distrustful officials from the Censor Committee. The reader, they say, will be explained that the novel «Master and Margarita» is not «against Soviet power», but «about another.» Vulis understood perfectly what they wanted from him. The editorial board decided to publish the first part of the novel in the eleventh issue of the journal for 1966. That means to quietly wait for authorities' reaction. And if everything goes well, the end of the novel is given in the first issue for the year 1967. That's why preface and afterword, both important, are published with the first chapter - if the reaction was adverse and the second part was never published. According to the researchers, more than 14,000 words were withdrawn from the text (159 censor cuts, of them 138 from the second part). People responsible for the publication of the novel not only considered it possible to erase certain words and phrases from the author's text, but also to throw out whole pieces and episodes, sometimes on many pages (for example, Nikanor Ivanovich's dream, or the scene in Torgsin). Cuts were also made in order to put the novel in the place assigned to it in the magazine («in order to save more space»). When the novel was published in the «Moskva», Bulgakov's wife signed all the changes. This was Simonov's advice: the main thing was to publish the novel, in any form. It's amusing that in «samizdat» separate typewritten lists of notes appeared, that is all pieces of text absent in the magazine publication, with an exact indication of where each missed piece should be inserted. The activity of censorship was thus exposed and pointless.

        THE COMEDIANS

      Bodley Head 1966 - First edition. The dedication copy. Inscribed, at length under the printed dedicatory letter, by Greene to his publisher A.S.Frere. "1966-1981 - now as always a / devoted friend. About to lunch with you + Pat at the H.H.K. at Monte / Carlo on a beautiful sunny day. April 29-31 / With both our loves to both of / you / Graham." Original green cloth in green pictorial dustwrapper. A fine copy. A.S. Frere-Reeves, later A.S. Frere was Greene's editor at Heinemann for his early novels starting with The Man Within in 1929. Frere became a director, eventually progressing to managing director of the firm. Mike Hill and Jon Wise in their work on Greene's letters and manuscripts "A Guide to the Graham Greene Archives" assess Frere's influence, "Among his publishers, Alexander (A.S.) Frere exerted a profound and lasting influence on the writer from his earliest days at Heinemann until October 1962 when, amidst much acrimony Greene joined Bodley Head." Having been sidelined at Heinemann, Frere retired in 1961 to work as a consultant for Bodley Head. Greene followed him and dedicated his first novel with Bodley Head to his friend and former mentor. Their relationship is best summed up by part of Greene's lengthy printed dedicatory letter in this book, "When you were head of a great publishing firm I was one of your most devoted authors, and when you ceased to be a publisher, I, like many writers on your list, felt it was time to find another home. This is the first novel I have written since then, and I want to offer it to you in memory of more than thirty years of association - a cold word to represent all the advice (which you never expected me to take), all the encouragement (which you never realized I needed), all the affection and fun of the years we shared."

        Wide Sargasso Sea.

      Andre Deutsch, London 1966 - First edition this "tour de force" (New York Times Book Review). Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Jean Rhys. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. Introduction by Francis Wyndham. Jacket design by Eric Thomas. Rare and desirable signed. Wide Sargasso Sea, a masterpiece of modern fiction, was Jean Rhys's return to the literary center stage. She had a startling early career and was known for her extraordinary prose and haunting women characters. With Wide Sargasso Sea, her last and best-selling novel, she ingeniously brings into light one of fiction's most fascinating characters: the madwoman in the attic from Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. This mesmerizing work introduces us to Antoinette Cosway, a sensual and protected young woman who is sold into marriage to the prideful Mr. Rochester. Rhys portrays Cosway amidst a society so driven by hatred, so skewed in its sexual relations, that it can literally drive a woman out of her mind.

        MAHO^ NO TORI

      1966. Fine. [MIMEOGRAPH/STENCIL ART] Wakayama Yasoji, poet and artist. MAHO NO TORI. Tokyo, Seienso. N.D [1966?]. #6 of 80 copies, signed of 180 copies, total. Small western-bound half leather and printed sheet styrofoam? volume, illustrated by Wakayama in his own technique of stencil art, named kohan. 16 x 12.2 cm. The fine art printmaking technique of kohan was developed in 1941 by Wakayama [1903-83], a close associate of Onchi Koshiro. He was an enormously prolific single sheet printmaker using color woodblock and kohan, but this charming little volume is one of his scarce and wonderful artist' books. Much like Takei Takeo, Wakayama appears to have been fascinated by the artistic potential of contemporary industrial materials. Here he has turned to printing using images stencilled via a mimeograph process onto sheets of a styrofoam-like material. The condition of this ultralight and delicate book is excellent, but the images and printed text have suffered from transfer effects, illustrating that not all radical experiments end happily. Still interesting, in the original styrofoam box and cardboard outer shipping box.

        Death of a Naturalist [Signed]

      New York: Oxford University Press, 1966. First American Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine-. First Printing of the poet's critically acclaimed first commercially published work (preceded by the privately printed pamphlet, Eleven Poems, in 1965), one of only 1,000 copies (bound from sheets purchased from Faber and Faber, Heaney's London publisher). Tall, slim 8vo: 57,[1]pp. Publisher's aquamarine cloth, spine lettered in gilt; typographic dust jacket printed in salmon-pink and olive, lettered black, priced $3.75. Signed by Heaney on the title page. A stunning copy, tight, square and likely unread; about Fine jacket, fresh and bright, with usual fading to the fugitive salmon-pink on bottom half of spine panel but all lettering undiminished. Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award, the Cholmondeley Award, the Eric Gregory Award, and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize. Heaney received the Nobel Prize in literature, in 1995. Brandes & Durkan A2b. A collection of 34 poems largely concerned with rural life, often in the context of childhood experiences and the formulation of adult identities and intimate relationships. It includes "Digging," "Death of a Naturalist," "Blackberry-Picking," among others. "Seamus Heaney has been, for good or ill, internationally the most prominent and the most popular Irish poet of the latter part of the twentieth century and the first part of the twenty-first. . . . His first two collections, Death of a Naturalist and Door into the Dark [a signed copy of which we also have on offer], largely written before the renewed outbreak of the so-called 'Troubles' in 1968, show Heaney alerting his audience to the violent history of colonisation on his native ground, but preoccupied also by the rhythms of life in a rural setting remembered from his childhood. He also, in a Wordsworthian manner, focuses upon the sources and resources of his own poetic voice and power." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B.

        Bell Jar, The

      London: Faber & Faber, 1966. First Edition thus. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Printing under the author's name. Small 8vo; [4], 258pp. Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in gilt (still brilliant); illustrated dust jacket priced at 25s. A Very Fine copy, square, tight and unmarked, in a Fine jacket. Often identified as the second edition, this is, in fact, the third, the second being a reissue by Heinemann under its Contemporary Fiction imprint, still bearing the pseudonym 'Victoria Lucas,' in 1964. Plath's only novel, this roman à clef was published just one month before her suicide under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas. It "provides a savvy critique of gender and class relations in Cold War America, a psychological journey through illness and recuperation, a complex exploration of female identity . . . Although Plath dismissed the book as a 'potboiler' when describing it to her mother, probably because she knew it would hurt her mother's feelings, she felt excited while writing it, and it remains an impressive achievement today."

        Tarantula.

      Madison, Wisconsin: Wimp Press, c. 1966. First pirated edition. Octavo, original wrappers as issued. Signed by Bob Dylan in a contemporary hand on the title page. A very good example with the cover a little rubbed and marked. One of the earliest pirated editions of Dylan's novel, taken from the Macmillan 1966 proofs after production was delayed, pre-dating the 1971 trade edition. Scarce and desirable signed by Dylan. Written in 1966, Tarantula is a collection of poems and prose that evokes the turbulence of the times in which it was written, and gives a unique insight into Dylan's creative evolution. It captures Bob Dylan's preoccupations at a crucial juncture in his artistic development, showcasing the imagination of a folk poet laureate who was able to combine the humanity and compassion of his country roots with the playful surrealism of modern art. Angry, funny, and strange, the poems and prose in this collection reflect the concerns found in Dylan's most seminal music: a sense of protest, a verbal playfulness and spontaneity, and a belief in the artistic legitimacy of chronicling everyday life and eccentricity on the street.
