        Setting Free the Bears (signed 1st printing)

      Random House, New York 1968 - 1968. Random House. New York. 335 pages. First Edition, first printing, stated. Signed by John Irving directly to the title page. Signature only. Original 1st issue DJ is near fine +. $5.95 price intact on DJ flap. DJ has a couple of minuscule marks at the foot of the backstrip. Appears as if a fingernail could likely scratch it off. Not even worth doing it, it is an incredible DJ as is. Red quarter cloth with pink / red paper boards. Gilt on backstrip is BRIGHT. The book itself is clean and tight. The book has been professionally restored as there are 2 instances on the front and back panel where there was once tape. The color matches up perfectly but you can tell this area was restored as the texture feels a little smoother and under certain light you can see the difference. Red topstain shows light fading in spots. Corners show light wear as does the paper on edges and corner tips. 1 corner is gently, barely pushed. Flaws are overstated and condition description is hyper-critical. This is a rare signed copy of the author's first book. VG+ in an original Fine DJ. A true plum of modern book collecting.

        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.

        La Police A L’Orte C’Est La Police Chez Vous" [Police at the ORTF Means Police in Your Home - Original Protest Poster from 1968 Paris Student Uprising]

      [Paris], [1968]. Very good. 44cm x 70cm, screen-printed in blue on heavy stock.  Stamped Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts Atelier Populaire at bottom right. Very good overall with a few large closed tears and some small spots of loss to the edges. Else bright and clean. Original and iconic poster from the 1968 May student uprising in Paris. Produced at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Art, the poster criticizes media manipulation by French state television, the ORTF or Office de Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française. A week before this poster was produced, a May 16th communiqué published by the Occupation Committee of the Autonomous and Popular Sorbonne University entitled “Watch out for Manipulators! Watch Out For Bureaucrats!” (translation quoted from The Situationist International Anthology) explains the antagonism towards the ORTF: “Why is the press committee -- which dares to censor the communiqués that it is charged to transmit to the agencies -- composed of apprentice journalists who are careful not to disappoint the ORTF bosses or jeopardize their future job possibilities?” The ORTF, subject to constant government interference, did not reference any student unrest at all in the months of March and April. In response, on May 25th a limited strike was held at the station followed by a full strike on June 3rd. However, the ORTF gave only limited and highly partisan coverage to the strikes. Nonetheless, the image from this poster [Kugelberg and Vermes #195 p. 172) - featuring barbed wire woven between the letters of the station (a la an atom) - remains one of the more iconic images from the 1968 protests and has been reproduced on several occasions. Even though these posters were produced sometimes in the hundreds for each design, they were posted on walls and placards and never meant to be saved, so their ephemeral nature contributes to their rarity.

An obscure American popular music autobiography, wherein Otis relates his integration as a Greek-American musician into the Watts Negro community of the 1930s and 40's, as well as his adventurous life beyond that time. Otis was one of the most successful bandleaders of his era, a rhythm and blues pianist, vibraphonist, drummer, singer, bandleader, and impresario, who wrote and popularized "Harlem Nocturne," then went on to discover The Coasters, Etta James, Big Jay MacNeely, Jackie Wilson, Hank Ballard, and Little Willie John. In the 1950s, he wrote "Willie and the Hand Jive" and "Every Beat of My Heart." His son is the multi-talented Shuggie Otis, a cult figure in American soul and pop music, who is best known for writing the 1970s hit, "Strawberry Letter 23." Otis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. A rare book, chronicling an extraordinary life in jazz, blues and rhythm and blues. An attractive copy of an extremely scarce title.
