        A Fairly Honourable Defeat [Signed]

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1970. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing of Iris Murdoch's thirteenth novel (a bit of pushing to the spine ends, one outer board corner lightly turned, a darkish spot to each board), in a very attractive dust jacket (crease line to the front flap -- so straight and neat that it may be a production flaw, otherwise Fine with barely a touch of wear, slight pushing to the spine panel head and a small mark to the spine panel as well), SIGNED BY IRIS MURDOCH on the title page. A novel wherein the lives of a group of friends are disrupted by the academic biochemist Julius King's bet with his ex-girlfriend Morgan Brown that he can break up the homosexual relationship of Simon Foster (a brother his former colleague Rupert Foster then writing a book about living morally) with another man, Axel Nillson, one of Rupert's current colleagues. New York Times reviewer Christopher Lehmann-Haupt praised the novel for its ingenious plot and for its "comic spirit", calling it "the most entertaining Iris Murdoch I've read in years". Another New York Times reviewer, Rubin Rabinovitz described the book as a novel of ideas and called it "one of the most enjoyable and interesting of Iris Murdoch's recent books". English Professor Emeritus at Kingston University, Peter J. Conradi -- a noted Literary Critic and Iris Murdoch's biographer, called the novel a "brilliant and decisive masterpiece", and the novel with which she entered a "new artistic maturity" with the plot and the characters are equally balanced. Having an excellent Provenance, this copy belonged to noted (and murdered) collector and bibliophile Rolland Comstock whose bookplate adorns the front pastedown. The book itself is surprisingly uncommon to the market, especially when in a condition as nice as is this copy, and signed copies of it in any condition are a scarce as hen's teeth. A Fine copy, SIGNED BY IRIS MURDOCH and EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO THE MARKET.

        [Two Country Music Photograph Albums]

      Poughkeepsie, NY, [ca. 1970]. Near fine. Two albums, each oblong 4to. Measuring approximately 10.25” x 7” with 155 color photographs, loosely mounted rectos only in corners. Album 1: Green faux-leather covers, gilt title decoration to front, sting bound, 59 black paper leaves, each with two photographs recto mounted, 118 prints total; well preserved, near fine. Album 2: Ivory faux-leather covers, gilt title decoration to front 20 black paper leaves, 19 with recto mounted photographs, most two to a page, final leaf blank; crease through center of front cover, otherwise clean, contents near fine. A fantastic pair of albums capturing 1970 Poughkeepsie, NY area regional country music acts, venues and patrons. Prints almost entirely uniform in size, measuring approximately 3.5” square, many date stamped outside the image area. The first album shows spots in and around Poughkeepsie, primarily the Brand X Corral bar on Rt. 94 in Vails Gate, NY. Acts include Gil Rogers (whose albums we suspect these were based on internal evidence), The Country Cousins, and Country Skyline. The second album follows Rogers down to West Virginia for his performance during the 1970 Eastern States Country Music Convention on the famed WWVA Jamboree in WheelingÂ’s Capitol Theater. Rogers recorded a handful of honky-tonk singles in the early 1970Â’s on the Stop label and enjoyed regional success as a performer for decades. These amateur images show the elaborate stage dress, music gear and social settings of Woodstock-era country music. That famed festival was held less than a year earlier and some 35 miles from where most of the images shown here were snapped, though one could be forgiven for guessing they were taken years and miles apart. An album that demonstrates how this blue collar form adhered to traditions and fans throughout the cultural sea changes of the late 1960s and early 70s, and a colorful portrait of a working regional musician.

        Typed letter signed to Dr. Joseph F. Rorke.

      Houston, NASA 1970 - In this historic letter Armstrong details the history of the Apollo XI in-flight cancellation of the “First Man on the Moon” stamp and of the die famously carried to the moon by Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins: “Thank you very much for your kind letter of congratulations on the successes of Apollo XI. In answer to your question, the moon stamp was canceled on the first day of the journey back to earth. The cancellation was completed simultaneously by all three crew members. The stamp has been returned to the Postmaster General for his disposition. The die was carried to the surface of the moon aboard the Eagle.” The astronauts were to have postmarked the Postmaster General’s “moon letter” while on the moon’s surface, but they did not have time to undertake the task. Instead, they used the “MOON LANDING/USA/JUL/20/1969” rubber handstamp on the return journey, as Armstrong relates in this letter. Michael Collins recalled, “Never mind that it is July 22, this is the first chance we have had to get to it. We try the cancellation out first, inking it and printing it in our flight plan three times until we get the hang of it, and then we apply it gingerly to the one and only envelope, which we understand the postmaster general will put on tour” (Collins, Carrying the Fire). The die that Armstrong and Aldrin carried to the surface of the moon was subsequently used to make the printing plates for the famous “First Man on the Moon” stamp, far and away the most popular issue in the history of the US Postal Service. This Neil Armstrong letter is rare documentation of a landmark event in philatelic history. Provenance: Dr. Joseph F. Rorke was an American philatelist whose collection of U.S. 1863-68 two-cent “Black Jack” issues was sold at Christie’s, New York on March 16, 1988. Rorke was Frank Lloyd Wright’s longtime personal physician and resident physician at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. One page (8 x 10 1/2 in.). Moderate creasing and wear. Good condition.

Its basic plot, whereby a true believer comes to question the validity of a totalitarian state and thus to transform it from a utopia into an anti-utopia, has been repeated by Aldous Huxley in BRAVE NEW WORLD (1932), George Orwell in NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR (1949) and by any number of epigones; yet its artistry, prophetic power, and underlying philosophy have not been surpassed." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2433-41.

On October 10, 1970, the cell kidnapped Quebec Labour Minister Pierre Laporte. Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau declared that any decision regarding the demands of the terrorists would be taken jointly by the federal government and the government of Quebec. "I think the society must take every means at its disposal to defend itself against the emergence of a parallel power which defies the elected power in this country and I think that this goes to any distance".. Challenged to state just how far he would go, Trudeau stated defiantly: "Well, just watch me".October 16, 1970 Prime Minister Trudeau announced the imposition of the War Measures Act. Laporte's strangled body was found in the trunk of a car on October 17. November 2, 1970 the governments of Canada and Quebec jointly offered a reward of $150,000 for information that would lead to the arrest of the kidnappers.Paul Rose, FLQ's Chenier Cell leader, was among those convicted of the kidnapping and / or murder of Pierre Laporte.POSTER DETAILS: (up to) $150,000.

Rewards in the same terms, are also offered for information leading to the arrest of kidnappers of Mr. J. R. Cross. Also, the offer of safe conduct for the kidnappers of Mr. Cross in exchange for Mr. Cross [sic] safe release continues to stand.

Quarto; variously-colored offset and letterpress-printed sheets, comb-bound into unprinted off-white pebbleboard covers; gold, yellow, teal, and black floral-patterned foil dustjacket; [x], [50pp] + colophon; illus. Though not called for, this copy is inscribed by Miller on the first page: "To Mag - Long may it wave! Henry Miller, 1/16/71. Hint of toning to lower edges of pebbleboard covers, else fresh and Fine. Dustjacket with light wear to corners, and a small chip to lower left corner of front panel discreetly mended on verso; Very Good+. With an illustrated announcement letter laid in, measuring 11.25" x 14", printed on recto and verso; light wear to extremities, with old horizontal fold at center; Near Fine. Easily the most elaborate production by Jon and Louise "Gypsy Lou" Webb of the Loujon Press, the last title they would produce together before Jon's death in 1971. 'Insomnia' was the second of Miller's books published by Loujon. In the mid-1960's, Miller became infatuated with a Japanese cabaret singer named Hoki Tokuda. He'd spend hours at the piano bar in the Imperial Gardens Restaurant in Hollywood, listening to Hoki sing. Miller eventually married her, and sometime in 1965-66 he got insomnia worrying about the relationship, prompting him to write this book. The Economy Edition was produced because many of the regular Loujon Press subscribers could not afford the deluxe edition; it was an expensive item ($1200.00, in 1970), produced in tiny numbers and issued in a special wooden box, complete with a suite of 12 watercolors. For the Economy Edition, subscribers could purchase 'Insomnia' with or without the watercolors, the present copy offered without them. Shifreen & Jackson A175h.

      Universal City: Universal Studios. 1970. Gay's screenplay based on Kesey's second novel, after One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but his first novel to be brought to the screen. The novel concerns the Stamper family, an independent, sometimes ornery group of Oregon loggers. The film was directed by Paul Newman and starred Newman, Henry Fonda and Lee Remick, and it has fallen into undeserved obscurity: it was nominated for two Academy Awards and many consider it one of the last great performances of Fonda's career. This is labeled "Second Draft Screenplay," dated by hand February 10, 1970, with the name of legendary Hollywood editor Dede Allen written on the front cover (Allen is not credited on the film). Bradbound in studio wrappers; a bit dusty, but near fine. First Edition. Softcover.

      New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1970. First American Edition. First Printing, one of 7,500 copies. Octavo; hunter green cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; variant with headband in olive green and yellow (no established priority); dustjacket; [xiii], 422pp, [1 blank]. Faint foxing to top edge, else Fine. Dustjacket is the so-called second state, with a "." instead of an excalamation mark at the end of the first paragraph on the front flap; price is unclipped, with some minor wear at spine ends, and a few very tiny nicks and tears to extremities; bright, very Near Fine example. A superlative copy of the Nobel Prize winner's masterpiece, and likely the most widely-read Spanish language novel aside from 'Don Quixote.' The present example is a review copy, with the publisher's typed slip laid in; the slip differs from other Harper & Row review slips from the same period, in that in states "IMPORTANT: please note that this is UNCORRECTED PROOF." Also laid into this copy is a brief, one page typed letter from Harper & Row publisher Cass Canfield, Jr. to Dr. Howard B. Gotlieb, former Director of Special Collections at Boston University. The letter is dated 21 October, 1969 - some four months prior to publication of the book - and mentions the enclosure of an advance proof of 'One Hundred Years of Solitude.' It isn't lost on us that the copy these materials came to us in is not an uncorrected proof (of which we presently know of exactly 2 copies). We can only surmise that these proof materials were placed into this copy of the book in-house; Canfield, whose business card is also laid into the book, may have decided that Gotlieb should receive a hardbound copy and not a paperbound proof, and thus would have placed the materials in one of the first hard copies manufactured. Evidence supporting copies in dustjacket with the "." on the front flap being printed prior to publication is discussed at length in Don Klein's 'Gabriel García Márquez: Una Bibliografía Descriptiva, Tomo II.' In it, Klein mentions that two editorial heads at Harper & Row received review copies directly from the printer, both in jackets ending in "." Additionally, the review copy received by translator Gregory Rabassa bore a jacket also ending in a "." and not the exclamation mark (p.635-636). And while we are fully cognisant that review materials often migrate from copy-to-copy within the trade, sufficient evidence is present that the migration here was more than likely the publisher's doing. The only such copy we have handled, the only other known to us being the bibliographer's copy. Klein E2.a.1.

      [Paris: The Artist, 1970].. [26] panels including stiff vellum-finish boards. Quarto (9.5 x 7.25"; 24 x 18 cm), accordion fold. About fine, in folding cloth and boards clamshell box (the latter slightly dust smudged). Although without stated limitation, this is one of three unique, but similar, copies of this artist's book in its purest form, hand- drawn, lettered and painted in watercolors by Lavater, and signed and dated in Paris by her on the blank verso of the penultimate panel. Warja, a Swiss-born illustrator and graphic designer, and a pioneer among creators of artist's books, is best known for creating or interpreting texts (often fables) via graphic symbols, often without accompaniment by anything other than an explanatory text at the end. This particular work is an original tale by her, communicated though a diverse group of brilliantly colored verbal standins and some integral text.
