He is the author of three novels (2 written in Hanoi, and another in Saigon), and in September of 1964 he became a press officer of the Minister of Information which brought him in contact with many important people in both the literary as well as the political scene.

        Adolf Hitler, His Part in My Downfall

      Michael Joseph, London 1971 - +++++++++ SIGNED and INSCRIBED "To a Right Goon" by Milligan +++++++++ A modern classic and Spike Milligan's most famous book. ++++ SEE PHOTO ++++ Whilst Spike's signature is collectible in itself, it is his witty, fun or nonsense inscriptions that are most sought after. Because of the success of this book Spike went on to write a whole series of books of his war exploits. Hugely amusing because it is written from the point of view of a common soldier so it encapsulates the confusion, the mismanagement, the lack of planning, th e blunders and a whole catalogue of farcical situations that the Army and even Hollywood never admit to, but which one can only imagine were rampant. Black boards with gold titles to spine. There are contemporary photographs, many of which are wonderfully amateur. price clipped. Slight fading to title on jacket, edgewear and 1" closed tear to bottom right corner. No inscriptions, not price- clipped or remainder marks. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Kinbaku Taizen / Sadistic play of Bondage

      Tokyo: Haga Publications, 1971. First Edition. Softcover.. VG+/VG+. Small 4to. 304pp. Red wraps in photographic dustwrap. Numerous black & white, duotone and colour images. Text in Japanese and English. More images available on request. Crikey, probably Shinoyama's best book! Made in collaboration with Dan (who's a legend in the SM world). According to Dan- "My book editors often confuse S/M with cruelty and they want me to write some 'punishment tale' for them. This type of story is out of my realm. It just gives me the creeps. Rather, my concept of S/M is 'distorted sexual desire' or extreme disorientation. It's a male fantasy derived from love... from seeing a beauty suffer through the sense of shame. Therefore, my style contains a romantic, aesthetic, and sometimes decadent fragrance." Amazing, fun and stylish as anything. So good.

Trinidadian essayist and novelist V.S. Naipaul has won both the 1971 Booker Prize and the 2001 Nobel Prize in Literature. In the same trend of excellence, In a Free State has garnered reviews that "V. S. Naipaul tells stories which show us ourselves and the reality we live in. His use of language is as precise as it is beautiful" (The London Times). "A Tolstoyan spirit....The so-called Third World has produced no more brilliant literary artist" (John Updike, The New Yorker).

        Oh, Nippon! / Oh, Japan!

      Tokyo: Miki Shuppan , 1971. First Edition. Softcover.. VG+. Small 4to, Unpaginated (ca 250pp). Printed wraps as issued. Numerous Black & White plates. Text in Japanese. A little rubbing with one small split to the sunfaded spine. Complete and bright otherwise! More images available on request. Ultra rare. Araki's first commercially available book. Cited in The Open book. Still very cut and paste and Xeroxy, his first book is much more playful and less violent than the work he is known for today. Araki constantly had problems with the censors and Oh Nippon! was no exception. Mikuo Nakamura developed a creative mise en page that split the rejected images into sections which could be easily reassembled by folding opposing pages together across multiple spreads. Beautiful and very well designed.

Near Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. --- FIRST EDITION / SECOND PRINTING --- Publisher's baby blue cloth covered boards stamped on front and spine in white. Original dust jacket. A near fine example with a slight bump and fray to lower front corner but otherwise unblemished in a very good lightly edge worn and rubbed dust jacket which has one faint stain to crown of spine and extending to the upper rear corner. A very presentable and attractive example of Conroy's notoriously scarce first book which served as the basis for the film of the same title. The dust jacket is not clipped and is identical to that found on the first printings. Given the rather obscure publisher coupled with the extremely limited size of the first two printings fresh copies of this early vintage are scarce to the market.

        Kim Fowley Visits America: Not Just Another Historic Journey

      Kim Fowley World Press Headquarters, Hollywood 1971 - Five issues (of eight issued?) as follows: Dispatch #3: Boston, 2pp. (two leaves printed rectos only); Dispatch #4: Philadelphia/Cleveland, 3pp. (two leaves printed rectos and one verso); Dispatch #5: Detroit, 3pp. (two leaves printed rectos and 1 verso); Dispatch #6: Chicago, 3pp. (two leaves printed rectos and 1 verso); Dispatch #8: Meltzer Reflects, [3]pp. (two leaves, printed rectos and 1 verso), photographs, facsimile of manuscript. Old folds, a couple of tiny nicks, near fine. A fascinating archive of press releases by one of the earliest rock critics, Richard Meltzer, apparently created by him for the producer, performer, hipster, (self-)promoter, and svengali, Kim Fowley. Fowley had and continues to have a colorful career in the music industry, beginning in 1959; he currently has a radio show on Sirius radio's Underground Garage station. Aside from working with Frank Zappa, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Gene Vincent, KISS, The Modern Lovers and many other, he is probably best known for his role in the formation and promotion of the Joan Jett and Cheri Currie-led band The Runaways. In the 2010 film *The Runaways* he is played by Michael Shannon in suitably manic fashion. *OCLC* locates no copies of the original issues, although excerpts appear in one of Meltzer's anthologies of criticism: *A Whore Just Like the Rest: The Music Writings of Richard Meltzer.*The dispatches document Fowley's wild, gonzo-esque, and occasionally X-rated progress as he traverses the U.S. at various rock venues, parties, and radio stations, apparently in the employment of Capitol Records. The final page of Dispatch #8 is a facsimile of a manuscript of a declaration of women's rights, apparently bemoaning the fact that there isn't enough good pornography for women and that "any men who derives pleasure from the abuse and degradation of women deserves anything and everything that the Women's Movement may do to him! Otherwise, hail Capitol Records." Meltzer also suggests that women have their way with Fowley and Meltzer, allow them no pleasure, and then castrate them, although his sincerity may be in some doubt on this point. Meltzer started his career in 1967 writing for *Crawdaddy*, and has published several books of criticism, as well as performed with the punk band VOM. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. (1971). First. First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper with nominal wear. Novel set in Ohio in 1818. Long Inscription by Maxwell (signed "W.M.") to an important editor, discussing how he arrived at the tone of the book, in part: "When I was young I realized that the first-person narrative is the hardest of all to manage, and that I wasn't up to it. With this book it suddenly became natural to me -- I kept thinking of E.B. White as I wrote it. His relaxed backhand..." A nice inscription. .
