        Politik är att vilja.

      Stockholm; Prisma, 1968. First edition. 18,5x11,5 cm. 240 pp. Original printed wrappers. Spine ends are insignificantly worn. Two small ink stains on rear wrapper. A fine copy. A selection of Palme's speeches and articles, collected under headings like ''Utopia and Reality'' and ''Solidarity without borders'', which contains Palme's speech at the protests against the Vietnam War in Stockholm on the 21st of February, 1968. Inscribed: ''Till Lennart Geijer fr. Olof Palme''. Olof Palme (1927-1986), Swedish politician and Prime Minister of Sweden 1969-76 and 1982-86. The book is inscribed to the Swedish politician and lawyer Lennart Geijer (1909-1999). He is mainly remembered for his role in the 'Geijer Scandal' in the 1970s. In 1976, as Geijer held the position of Minister of Justice, he was pointed out as a possible safety risk by the Swedish Security Service, due to his alleged involvement with prostitutes from East European states. Palme was informed about this through a report which listed several Swedish politicians, who were pointed out as customers of a certain callgirl network in Stockholm. In 1977, the newspaper Dagens Nyheter published an article on the matter, but Palme denied that Geijer would have been suspected and he also denied the existence of the police report. The report was made official in 1991 and Geijer was, after all, mentioned in it. His guilt has, however, never been proved

        Typed Letter Signed to Leon Uris and 12-page outline for the film "Topaz

      Universal City, 1968. unbound. Historically important typed letter signed, 2 pages, 4to, 11 x 8.5 inches, on "Alfred J. Hitchcock Productions, Inc." letterhead. Universal City, June 20, 1968. Signed with his iconic self-caricature drawing to acclaimed author and screenwriter Leon Uris. Written just weeks before Hitchcock fired Uris as the screenwriter for the motion picture "Topaz," in part: "...I have been having further thoughts about the latter bit of our yarn. I still feel we are missing an element which I think is most important for us to incorporate. This is the menace to the life of Andre Devereaux. As we have it at present, we have Jarre talking to Granville concerning the mistrust of Devereaux, and Granville in return telling Jarre that Devereaux will be taken care of. Now somehow we never follow through with this threat...I'm not at the moment positive about this, but it would seem to me that we ought to consider the possibility that when Andre is interviewed by the police (after the death of Jarre), he convinces them that his son-in-law could not be responsible...with the warmest and fondest wishes to you in the purpose that you are able to achieve in writing the most perfect, sophisticated, witty, apt and characterful dialogue for this picture..." Much more exceptional content. Also included is a 12-page carbon typed narrative outline of "Topaz," 4to, each page measuring 11 x 8.5 inches and heavily annotated by Uris who has put a personal comment after each of Alfred Hitchcocks suggestions, i.e. "later," "now," "Someone has gotten to my editor," "yes," "no," "subtle," "O.K.," etc. In essence, Uris's comments showed his lack of flexibility in broadening his manuscript of "Topaz" -- a decision that forced Hitchcock to fire him. Excellent condition.

        The Instant Enemy [Bound Galleys]

      NY: Knopf. 1968. An uncorrected proof copy of this Lew Archer novel in the form of comb-bound galleys. A proof with exceptional provenance: it belonged to Anthony Boucher (with "Boucher" in orange pencil on the front cover), one of the seminal figures in the mystery field. Boucher was a co-founder of the Mystery Writers of America and winner of one of the first Edgar Awards that group gave out, for his reviews of mystery fiction. The annual mystery convention, Bouchercon as it is popularly known, is named for him. Some chipping to the top of the plastic binding, and minor creasing and fading to covers; very good. An extremely uncommon proof, and a particularly notable copy of it. . First Edition.

PRESENTATION: 8-lines in English, carefully done in pen & ink in large, clear rounded script on the front endpaper. It is signed, dated and sited, stating; "Basel, Oktober 1983 Dear Mr. Rand, I am aware of your interest in our graphic design program here in Basel and therefore am pleased to give you a copy of this book, with Best Regards, Peter von Arx". FORMAT: Publisher's black, glazed paper boards with white letters in its sewn binding. SIZE: 302 x 235 mm (11.9 x 9.25 inches). CONDITION SUMMARY: Very Good / Issued without a book jacket. Presentation: Fine. Pages: Fine, as if unread. Pasted Paper Boards: clean with all-around light rubbings, two tips with a trace rub. Binding: Excellent, a slight spine slant. PAGINATION: Confirmed complete, 291 pages, profusely illustrated, with many double-page illustrations.
