J. M. G. le Clézio' won the 1963 Prix Renaudot for his novel debut novel "Le Procès-Verbal" (published in English as "The Interrogation"), and the 2008 Nobel Prize in Literature as an "author of new departures, poetic adventure and sensual ecstasy, explorer of a humanity beyond and below the reigning civilization". Of "terra amata, the Wall Street Journal stated (in 2008, after le Clézio had published over 36 books ) "...Mr. Le Clézio's most impressive book may be a brief one he published at age 27, when he was still a combative modernist. "Terra Amata," translated into English in 1967, combines his game-playing as the author with a savage lyricism reminiscent of Thomas Hardy." We have not seen any other signed copies of the book in any language. A Very Near Fine copy, SIGNED BY J. M. G. LE CLEZIO. QUITE SCARCE.

        President Nixon Inauguration Tickets

      Philadelphi: Globe Ticket Company. 1969. Three tickets to the inauguration of President Richard M. Nixon and Vice President Spiro Agnew on January 20, 1969. The tickets measure 7.25" x 2.5" and are printed on both sides. There is some light wear to the tickets and a couple spots but they are unused with the stub still attached, overall near fine. Each of the three tickets is different with two printed on stiff white card stock with different color inks used for each; the third ticket is printed on a stiff gold-coated card stock. Each shows a portrait of Nixon and Agnew with various illustrations of America on one side and the event information on the other. One white card stock ticket has a price of $12.00 and a location on the mall, while the other white ticket has no price and is for an "Honored Guest" with seating near the White House. The final gold foil ticket was likely reserved for V.I.P.s with seating on the "Presidential Reviewing Stand"; additional research may well determine who's actual seat this was but our Nixon Presidential Library card has expired and we have not had time to renew it just yet. Nevertheless, an interesting selection of tickets from President Nixon's first term as president. .
