        Archive of Signed Letters to LOCUS

      Sherman Oaks [1968-1975]: Harlan Ellison, 1968 An interesting archive of signed letters from Harlan Ellison addressed to Charles Brown, editor of LOCUS dates from December 31st, 1968 through January 3rd, 1976. A total of 24 pages constituting 17 letters covering a wide range of 'hot' topics. "Dear Charlie: Please publish as written. ITEM IN LOCUS 73: "Ellison's DANGEROUS VISIONS is a major travesty of the words in the title - my own piece, 'The Assination of J.F. Kennedy Considered as a Downhill Motor Race,'was declined on the grounds that 'many millions of Americans might be offended'. In other words, dangerous, but not too dangerous, visions," -- J. G. Ballard / If in fact Jim Ballard said this, it is pure muddle-headed bullshit. I never saw the story." "Charlie: Some news for the excellent LOCUS. My STAR TRECK script that won the Writer's Guild of America award was the original version, not repeat, NOT the aired emasculated version. Forthcoming stories: THE PITLL PAWOB DIVISION (Galaxy), a story I wrote around an unpublished Hannes Bok painting I unearthed in Emil Petaja's files. Books forthcoming: PARTNERS IN WONDER (Belmont), a collection of stories on which I collaborated with Laumer, Asimov, Budrys, Slesar, Hensley, Sheckley, Delaney, Davidson, Zelazny and Sturgeon. Sometime towards the end of this year or first of 1969. . AGAIN DANGEROUS VISIONS, Volume 2" "5 February 69 / Dear Charlie and Marsha: This is URGENT. Double day's traditional practice with hardcover books is to 'retire them', i.e. put them out-of-print, as soon as sales slack off. Philip K. Dick's brilliant "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" went out of print after being available for less than six months". "Harlan also advises that recently-written novella "A Boy And His Dog" has apparently scared off all possible magazine purchasers". "25 February 69 / Dear Charlie & Marsha: Here is some current news. Harlan Ellison Writes: The first draft of my two TV series sold to Paramount.It is called "Man Without Time" - a retelling of the Gilgamesh Legend. Leonard Nimoy has expressed interest". "20 March 69 / Browns: / By the time you get this, I'll be in Rio de Janeiro, where they will be showing my award-winning Outer Limits segment, "Demon With A Glass Hand". (A shock hit me when I realized that Roddenberry's spinoff on "Star Treck", called "Assignment: Earth", was a direct parallel to my "Man Without Time" -- which I had laid on him early in our relationship.

        King Oedipus

      Verona: Officina Bodoni, 1968. Folio. (96) (iv) pp. From an edition of 114 copies, this is one of 105 on Magnani paper, signed by the artist, Giacomo Manzù on the colophon page. This copy also bears a contemporary inscription from Manzù on the front endpaper. Illustrated with seven full-page etchings by Manzù. Printed by Martino Mardersteig for the American art publisher, A.E. Racolin. Loose, as issued, in the publisher's binding of green morocco-backed vellum with a relief of the head of Oedipus by Manzù. Martino Mardersteig recounts the "strange pre-history" of this elegant edition: he and A.E. Racolin approached Manzù twice about his illustrating a book for an American audience, and both times the artist rejected the poems under consideration for his illustrations. During the second visit, Mardersteig noticed Manzù's sketches for costumes and decor for Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex, which included "a magnificent metre-high relief of the head of Oedipus". Mardersteig and Manzù reached an agreement on an edition of Sophocles's tragedy, and the magnificent relief became the first etching as well as its cover illustration. This is a very fine copy of one the most elusive Officina Bodoni titles, housed in its original folding case which shows very light bumps to corners.

A superb Karsh image with his typical strong distinctive lighting & contrasts. Signed by Karsh on the margin below the image. A Presentation Print, inscribed on the blank border: 1968 / To Charles Beasley with every good wish / Roland Michener Norah Willis Michener". [slight rub to one signature] "Michener was elected to the House of Commons in 1957, where-after he served as speaker of the house until 1962, and then in diplomatic postings between 1964 and 1967. He was that year appointed as governor general by Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, on the recommendation of Prime Minister of Canada, Lester B. Pearson, to replace Georges Vanier as viceroy, and he occupied the post until succeeded by Jules Léger in 1974. Michener proved to be a populist governor general whose tenure is considered to be a key turning point in the history of his office. On October 15, 1962, Michener was sworn into the Queen's Privy Council for Canada,[2] giving him the accordant style of The Honourable; however, as a former governor general of Canada, Michener was entitled to be styled for life with the superior form of The Right Honourable. He subsequently served on various corporate and charitable boards and sat as Chancellor of Queen's University before he died on August 6, 1991" - Wikipedia. Signed by Author. 1st Edition.

      Cambridge: The MIT Press, 1968. Close to fine in almost near fine jacket, complete, with several small tears, creases, tiny edge chips, and small areas of loss at the flap folds (more of less hidden). Very nice copy.. First Edition. Folio. In 1968, Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown and Steven Izenour taught a third year studio graduate class at Yale that would have great implications on the study of architecture in the postmodern era. The class was called Learning from Las Vegas, or Form Analysis as Design Research. There were 13 students in total. In the end, their work would comprise the basis for the landmark architectural work Learning from Las Vegas, authored by Venturi, Brown, and Izenour, but compiled, researched and photographed by the students themselves. The seminal architectural text of its era, right there with Ruscha in terms of prescience and influence.

        Galley Sheets for "Presenting: The Richard Nixon Doll (Overhauled Model)"

      (n.p.): Pageant Magazine. 1968. Galley sheets for Thompson's article on the Nixon campaign, written for the July 1968 issue of Pageant Magazine. Here untitled, and dated April 10, 1968. Eventually collected in The Great Shark Hunt. We were unable to locate this issue of Pageant, but the galleys differ from the collected version in a handful of instances. Six pages, 9" x 12", printed on rectos only, with penciled notation "670 lines/at 32 chars/per line." A notable piece in Thompson's bibliography and his biography: it is the first piece he wrote on Richard Nixon, who became over the years something of a nemesis or a bete noire to Thompson. Thompson's hatred of Nixon was legendary and it created a kind of bond between the two. After Nixon's death Thompson wrote "Richard Nixon was an evil man -- evil in a way that only those who believe in the physical reality of the Devil can understand it. He was utterly without ethics or morals or any bedrock sense of decency." And yet he also wrote "It was Richard Nixon who got me into politics, and now that he's gone, I feel lonely." Folded in half once, with a gentle corner crease; near fine. Early gonzo reporting, in a rare advance state. . First Edition.

        Colonel Sun. A James Bond Adventure

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1968,, 1968. FIRST EDITION. THE AUTHOR'S COPY, in a bespoke quarter leather binding of half brown morocco, gilt, commissioned by the publisher for presentation to Amis. Obviously a unique copy, this was likely bound by Ian Fleming's own binder Arthur Last, the style matching closely the author's copies of Cape's original Bond novels now residing at the Lilly Library and researched by Gilbert while producing the forthcoming bibliography. Amis' presentation binding also features his initials tooled in gilt. A typed statement is included, noting this as being the only such copy produced for him, SIGNED in full by Amis. Owned in conjuction with Lucius Books of York. After Ian Fleming's death in 1964, [copyright holders] Glidrose decided to continue the Bond franchise with a series of well-known authors each writing a book under a pen-name. However, only Kingsley Amis took up the offer [writing as 'Robert Markham'], and in 1968 his 007 novel, 'Colonel Sun' was published. Although initial sales proved disappointing, Bond fans now consider it a classic, with a gritty, fast-paced story written in a polished style by the established Amis [effectively re-creating the famous 'Fleming sweep']. Already a part of the 'Bond Family', Amis had previously written a popular critical work on the secret agent entitled 'The James Bond Dossier' (1965), plus the light-hearted 'Book of Bond' (1965), and he was therefore an ideal candidate; at the time, rumours circulated that Amis finished 'The Man With The Golden Gun' upon Fleming's death (only the first draft of the novel had been completed) and that 'Colonel Sun' was offered as an incentive from Glidrose. Haining; Crime Fiction p206. BMC No.1 p.4-13 'James Bond Revivals'. Hubin; Crime Fiction IV. Gilbert, Jon; Ian Fleming: The Bibliography, page 602.
