        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      Maecenas Press - Random House, 1969. Limited to 2,500 Copies. Clamshell Box. Near Fine Plus/Near Fine Plus. Dali, Salvador. Here is an incredible example of one of the 2 or 3 most highly prized editions of Mr. Salvador Dali's lithographs ever published. Please contact us with any questions and feel free to contact us at 503 239-5222 during any afternoon except Sunday (Pacific Standard Time) should you wish to speak with us directly. Here we have an incredible example of one of Mr. Dali's most significant books and a rare opportunity to purchase a complete collection of the drawings he drew to illustrate Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". Published by the Maecenas Press imprint under Random House Publishers, this book was issued published and issued in 1969 in an edition of 2,500 released to the general public. This is the limited edition, not the Deluxe limited edition of 200 which can sell for $30,000 or more. This edition is signed on the title page by Mr. Dali. We can provide up to 30 photos of this book and the illustrations should you wish to see them. This example of the book is Near Fine when graded conservatively, including the Original tan leather backed clamshell box with thick cloth boards, gilt lettered spine, original leather ties and faux bone clasps, illustrated by Salvador Dali. It is oversized, measuring 18.5 x 13.5 x 4 inches. This is copy #2106 of 2500 and it includes the original boxes which were issued with the book. We are selling this copy for a friend of the store who purchased this copy new from the J.K. Gill location here in Portland, Oregon in 1969 for a price exceeding $300. He has looked at it less than 5 times since then and kept it in immaculate condition. I see the slightest hint of difference in tone to a small portion of the front board of the clamshell box but believe that it may have been issued as such. This copy contains the prospectus and all pages. All 12 illustrations are present and immaculate. I find two nearly imperceptible spots approximately the size of the head of a pin on the front of the folding chapter The Pig and the Pepper. All 12 chapters are divided into sections, each of which is folded together and is removable from the box itself as they are not bound together. All are present and all are basically in near NEW condition. Includes the original shipping boxes. This is a truly beautiful copy of an incredible example of Mr. Dali's work. Again, please contact us with any questions or to see photos- we can provide up to 30 images of this book to show its condition. As stated on the prospectus "2500 portfolios, numbered 1 to 2500, were printed on Mandeur paper. Each portfolio is signed on the frontispiece by the artist. Each portfolio contains 12 illustrations with an original remarque on each illustrations. One original colored etching signed in the plate is opposite the fronstipiece." This is an incredible example of Dali's work and a highly sought after work of art. We have sold items for these amounts in the past and are happy to answer any questions you have regarding our store or this item in particular. Please contact us any afternoon (Pacific Standard Time) except Sunday at 503 239-5222 to speak with us directly. UPS domestic expedited shipping including insurance will be the preferred method of domestic shipping. International shipping via UPS including insurance for the full value of the book will be $350. We strongly prefer payment by check but will accept other payment options. Again, please contact us with any questions or concerns you have regarding this book.

        Typed Note Signed Regarding Portnoy's Complaint

      [1969]. January 4, 1968[1969]. A note addressed "Dear Bert [Krantz]," thanking him for a card and then quickly adding that he has found two errors in the text of "PC" (Portnoy's Complaint), despite not having read the book through yet. He describes the errors and asks if they can be corrected in then second printing and whether Bantam will print from the second printing. Signed: "Make love, not typos,/ Yrs, Philip." Roth's dating of this letter is itself likely a typo: the book's official publication was in February of 1969; the letter was likely written in January of 1969. A bibliographically significant letter, pertaining to what may still be Roth's best-known work. Folded for mailing; recipient's marginal mark; author's name on verso; near fine. .

        Original, Signed Police Report on the May 15th - 22nd Berkeley People's Park Riots, Including 2 Post-Mortem Photographs of Police Shooting Victim James Rector

      Berkeley: Berkeley Police Department, 1969. Smithson's report focuses upon the events of May 22nd, 1969, when National Guard troops and Berkeley police conducted a successful mass arrest of over 400 student demonstrators, including many of the movement's organizers. Roughly half of the report is devoted to an hour-by-hour account of police and National Guard actions that day; the remainder of the report is devoted to a summary of events leading up to the 22nd, including Governor Ronald Reagan's declaration of a state of emergency in Berkeley, the actions of demonstration organizers and participants during the week previous to the mass arrests, and descriptions of the literature handed out by various factions including SDS and The Revolutionary Union. Smithson does not discuss the circumstances surrounding the police murder of James Rector, probably because by the time this report was written - more than a month after the fact - Rector's case was under official police review. A chilling artifact of one of the bloodiest episodes in the history of the Berkeley Free Speech movement. Original 19-pp typed police report, submitted to Berkeley Chief of Police B.R. Baker by Lt. D.C. Smithson. Signed at conclusion, dated 6-20-69. With two original 4" x 5" photographic prints, being official coroner's photographs of the body of James Rector, the U.C. Berkeley student who was the only mortal casualty of the People's Park Riots. Slight soiling, old staple-holes to report pages; each page stamped "Filmed;" Very Good. Photographs clean and unfaded, Near Fine.

        I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

      New York: Random House, 1969. First edition of the author's critically acclaimed first book. Octavo, original first issue book, with top edge stained red. Inscribed and dated by the author, "Joy Maya Angelou". Fine in a fine dust jacket with a small crease to the front flap. A very nice copy. This testimony from a black sister marks the beginning of a new era in the minds and hearts of all black men and women... I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, liberates the reader into life simply because Maya Angelou confronts her own life with such a moving wonder, such a luminous dignity. I have no words for this achievement, but I know that not since the days of my childhood, when the people in books were more real than the people one saw every day, have I found myself so moved... Her portrait is a biblical study in life in the midst of death." (James Baldwin)
