        Three Women; A Monologue for Three Voices

      Turret Books, Privately printed at Oficyna Stanislawa Gliwy, London 1968 - Number 102 of 180 copies, first edition in book form, quarto size, [24] pp. "Three Women" is a poetic work that was written especially for broadcasting; the production was recorded on August 2, 1962 and broadcast on September 13 (N.B., these dates from Douglas Cleverdon's preface). Some critics consider this work her finest and most touching, a simple but dramatically effective sequence of monologues by three women, each having had a very different experience of childbirth, with the voices constructing a discourse "in which women's bodies, consciousness and experience are at the center". This is the first time the work was published as a book, not many years after Plath's death.___DESCRIPTION: Original beige cloth with lettering and illustration in gilt to upper board, gilt lettering to backstrip, fore- and bottom edges uncut, title page in red and black, frontispiece a linocut of three women by Stanislaw Gliwa, preface with large red initial, page numbers,title and ornaments all in red at the top of each page throughout, one additional illustration at the end of the text of three roses; Bembo type, T.H. Saunders mould-made paper, quarto size (11" by 9"), pagination: [1-4] 5-22 [23] [1 colophon], first edition in book form, limited, this number 102 of 180 copies.___CONDITION: A near fine copy, with clean paper boards, corners straight and unrubbed, a strong, square text block with solid hinges, beautifully printed and internally bright, entirely free of prior owner markings; except for a hint of foxing at the top-edge, a fine copy in an acetate wrapper.___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

      1968-1975. Seven letters, totaling 18 pages, written to her friend, the novelist and screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer. Owens was back in New York by this time, after a decade spent living in the expatriate community in Paris supporting herself writing soft porn for Maurice Girodias' Olympia Press, under the name Harriet Daimler. After Claude, her first novel under her own name, would be published in 1973. One autograph letter signed and six typed letters signed, densely packed, with thoughts on her own writing, the writing of others, sex, family, food, exercise, publishing, and writers' colonies. Also includes what seems to be retained copies of two partial letters from Wurlitzer as well: one to Owens, one to someone named Claus, typed on Owens' stationery while staying at the Chelsea hotel. Evidence of a close friendship, enacted over a decade, with Owens' no holds barred personality on display throughout. Mailing folds, an odd collage adhered to the verso of one letter, over what appears to be a handwritten postscript; else all elements are fine. No Binding. Fine.

        Black Politics: A Journal of Liberation - Group of 9 Issues

      Berkeley: Black Politics, 1968-1969. Paperback. Attractive run of this short-lived Black liberation journal, published in Berkeley in the years of 1968 and 1969. Their "Statement of Purpose" clearly delineates the journal's goals and contents: "Black Politics is an independent journal whose purpose is to provide a forum for vanguard theories and ideas that deal with currently crucial issues. We support the liberation struggles of the oppressed masses of the world...We are a part of the Black liberation movement and believe that freedom, justice and equality must be attained by those means that the oppressed think necessary." Indeed, the contents are deeply sympathetic toward the cause of the Black Panther Party, with issue no.4-5 devoted to Huey P. Newton. Contributors include George Prosser, Stokely Carmichael, Robert F. Williams, Richard Assegai, Eldridge Cleaver, and others. DANKY 970. Nine issues in five quarto volumes (28cm); mimeographed sheets, side-stapled; 20, 25, 42, 39, 78pp; illus. Publication sequence as follows: Vol.1, No.1, 3, 4-5, 6-8; Vol.2, Nos.13-14.

        Myra Breckinridge.

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company,, 1968. Octavo. Original black boards, gilt titles to spine, publisher's device to front board in blind, dark grey endpapers. Slightly rolled, top corners slightly bumped. A good copy in the dust jacket, front flap creased, with a few large chips to extremities. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author to gay publisher Winston Leyland on the half-title: "W.L. best wishes Gore Vidal 1 - 11 - 81", with Leyland's signature to the first page. Loosely inserted is a letter sent from La Rondinaia by Vidal to Leyland in 1977. The letter begins "Dear Mr. Leyland, There is nothing unpublished worth publishing (this does not work put the other way 'round)" and goes on to discuss Leyland's interview with Tennesee Williams, and registering his surprise to read Williams' claim that he didn't mind the "fag-baiting" that had dogged him in the 40s and 50s, Vidal instead reminding Leyland of Williams's intense paranoia of being spied upon by "the Luce gang". Winston Leyland (b.1940) was a leading figure in American LGBT publishing who won the Stonewall Book Award in 1980. He established the Gay Sunshine Press in 1975, and his Gay Sunshine Journal (1970-82) was particularly influential for its interviews with prominent gay writers of the era, including Vidal himself. This is a great association for Vidal's satirical classic, which Dennis Altman acknowledged as "part of a major cultural assault on the assumed norms of gender and sexuality which swept the western world in the late 1960s and early 1970s".

        Trn: Humoristický Ob asník [The Thorn: A Humorous Periodical]. Vol. I, No. 1 (1966) through Vol. II, No. 4 (1968) (all published)

      A complete run in 6 issues, each issue 32-48 pp., of the provocative satirical Czech journal under the editorial direction of Jan Jirasek, published during the brief period of political liberalization leading up to the Prague Spring of 1968, with political satire, erotic and literary humor, and innovative typographic layout influenced by the post-war surrealist and avant-garde movements, and including literary and artistic contributions from Václav Havel, Ji í Sýkora, Josef Škvorecky, Bohumil Hrabal, Bohumil Št pán, and Jan Ambrož. Illustrated throughout, including photomontages and full-page illustrations 4to. Orig. stapled pictorial wrpps. Brno (Ve erní Brno) 1966-1968. The Prague Spring was a brief period of political liberalization during the era of Czechoslovakia's domination by the Soviet Union after World War II, beginning on January 5, 1968 with the election of reformist Alexander Dubcek as First Secretary of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (KSC). It ended shortly thereafter, on August 21, 1968, when the Soviet Union and other members of the Warsaw Pact invaded the country to put a halt to the reforms and usher in a more repressive regime known as "Normalization". Provocative journals, including Trn, quickly ceased publication. Many of the contributors even emigrated or would not publish again until after 1989, when the Velvet Revolution peacefully ended Communist rule and ushered in a new age of democracy. A very scarce complete run of an important avant-garde journal; as of November 2017, WorldCat locates only one holding of a single issue in North America.

        A Fan's Notes

      Harper and Row, New York 1968 - Advance Reading Copy. Printed red wrappers. About fine. Inscribed by Exley: "For Burt Britton with all deep affection 11/19/74 Exley, and thank you." Exley's well-received first book, a "fictional memoir" (which seems more memoir than fiction). An exploration of the life of a fan of the New York Giants football team, told between drinking bouts and episodes of madness. A title which in recent years has been steadily gaining recognition as a masterpiece. Famously troubled, Exley wasn't a prolific signer and this is the only signed copy of the Advance Reading Copy that we've seen. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Trn: Humoristický Ob asník [The Thorn: A Humorous Periodical] Vol I, No 1 (1966) through Vol II, No 4 (1968) (all published)

      A complete run in 6 issues, each issue 32-48 pp., of the provocative satirical Czech journal under the editorial direction of Jan Jirasek, published during the brief period of political liberalization leading up to the Prague Spring of 1968, with political satire, erotic and literary humor, and innovative typographic layout influenced by the post-war surrealist and avant-garde movements, and including literary and artistic contributions from Václav Havel, Ji í Sýkora, Josef Škvorecky, Bohumil Hrabal, Bohumil Št pán, and Jan Ambrož. Illustrated throughout, including photomontages and full-page illustrations 4to. Orig. stapled pictorial wrpps. Brno (Ve erní Brno) 1966-1968. The Prague Spring was a brief period of political liberalization during the era of Czechoslovakia's domination by the Soviet Union after World War II, beginning on January 5, 1968 with the election of reformist Alexander Dubcek as First Secretary of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (KSC). It ended shortly thereafter, on August 21, 1968, when the Soviet Union and other members of the Warsaw Pact invaded the country to put a halt to the reforms and usher in a more repressive regime known as "Normalization". Provocative journals, including Trn, quickly ceased publication. Many of the contributors even emigrated or would not publish again until after 1989, when the Velvet Revolution peacefully ended Communist rule and ushered in a new age of democracy. A very scarce complete run of an important avant-garde journal; as of November 2017, WorldCat locates only one holding of a single issue in North America.
