NY: Delacorte, 1969. First edition of this, the author's most notable novel -- about the fire bombing of Dresden. This copy is signed by Paul Collins, and dated in year of publication. He had something to do with either the author or Delacorte Press, because this is a presentation copy of Dr. Charles Brown, who, according to a laid in note, found an error on Page 158 that has "already been brought to the author's attention". I cannot detect the error, so it may have to do with historical fact. A most handsome copy of a book that is getting harder to locate in collectable condition. A bookplate signed by Mr. Vonnegut is laid in. . AUTHOR-SIGNED Bookplate. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.

The ultimate in sexist art, contrived copulation machines with mostly female subjects. "Tomi Ungerer's sexual contraptions are not the soft machines of mind, nor the impalpable machines of human relationship, but the self-parodying, hard mechanicals of alienated geniality. They are pictures of a dehumanized screwing (and how relevant the mechanical pun is here) that is as far from the purely animal in one direction as the most sublimated idealizations are in another."

NY: Random House. (1969). An early play by one of the most admired and successful playwrights and screenwriters of his time, who won two Tony Awards for Best Play and earned four Academy Award nominations, among numerous other awards. Plaza Suite was directed by Mike Nichols when it opened on Broadway, with George C. Scott and Maureen Stapleton starring. Nichols won a Tony Award for Best Director for his work on the play and Scott and Stapleton each received Tony nominations. Stapleton also starred in the 1971 film version, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. The film was directed by Arthur Hiller. This copy is inscribed by Simon to film director Tony Harvey: "To Tony - I hope you do it - Neil." Harvey had directed The Lion in Winter in 1968, for which he received an Oscar nomination, and Simon's inscription indicates a desire at that time for Harvey to direct the film adaptation of the play. Page edges foxed; crown cloth sunned; indent to upper rear board; about near fine in a rubbed and spine-faded dust jacket. A nice association copy, and a small but notable bit of film history. .

RICH, Adrienne [LOWELL, Robert]
W. W. Norton & Company (1969), New York. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper to Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Hardwick, and their only child Harriet: "For Elizabeth + Cal + Harriet-/with always more love-/Adrienne." Lowell appropriated the book and the margins are filled with his ticks and slashes and a few words, especially in the section "Ghazals, Homage to Ghalib," a series of meditations on contemporary life modeled on Ghalib; the similarity to the poems Lowell was then working on for NOTEBOOKS and HISTORY is remarkable as is the association value of this copy. Three years later Lowell would publish THE DOLPHIN which Rich called "a cruel and shallow book" and "one of the most vindictive and mean-spirited acts in the history of poetry." Writing in AMERICAN POETRY REVIEW, she said: "what does one say about a poet who, having left his wife and daughter for another marriage, then titles a book with their names [FOR LIZZIE AND HARRIET] and goes on to appropriate his ex-wife’s letters written under the stress and pain of desertion, into a book of poems nominally addressed to the new wife?"

Artmann, H[ans] C[arl], Schriftsteller (1921-2000).
Salzburg, "c/o Bayer", 1969.. Zusammen (¾+¾+½ =) 2 SS. auf 3 Bll. Gr.-4to. Mit vier ms. Gegenbriefen (als Durchschlag) mit zusammen 7 SS. auf 8 Bll. Gr.-4to.. Korrespondenz mit Mario Hindermann über die Zusammenstellung und das Erscheinen von "Die Fahrt zur Insel Nantucket" (Neuwied u. a., Luchterhand, 1969): "Ich habe noch zwei kleine Stücke vorgefunden, die ich Ihnen hiermit zuschicke; vielleicht können Sie sie brauchen. Außerdem fand ich in München 'Attila ante portas', welches ich ebenfalls beifüge. Übermorgen fahre ich nach Wien und hoffe dort noch einiges fehlende aufzutreiben. Meine jetzige Adresse (streng geheim!) ist: H. C. Artmann c/o Bayer [...]" (aus dem Br. vom 4. V.; ohne die erwähnten Stücke). - "Soeben treffe ich hier in meinem salzburger domizil ein, war auf drei tage in klagenfurt, und finde die manuskripte vor. Den Punch hatte ich bereits vollkommen vergessen, aber er gefällt mir eigentlich gar so übel nicht. Die anderen beiden pantomomen(mimen) sind saumässig schlecht und dürften aus meiner naivsten steinzeit (vd. paläolithikum) stammen. Bitte nicht aufnehmen! Also: Spanischer Capitano et Metamorpföschen beim kinogehen oder wie es heisst. Das ist doch täubchen-kacke, wie der gebildete amerikaner sagt! [...]" (aus dem Br. vom 16. V.). - Jeweils im linken Rand gelocht (keine Textberührung); der Brief v. 16. V. mit einer zweizeiligen eh. Nachschrift.
