        Watership Down

      London: Rex Collings Ltd., 1972. 413 pp. Approximately 5 1/2 x 8 1/2". First English edition. Dust jacket in near fine condition, with a few tiny little chips out of bottom edge, Japanese paper repairs done very nicely to inside jacket on spine creases which looks like a few small tears were repaired, original price of "£3.50 net" intact; Brown cloth with gilt lettering on the spine and a gilt design of rabbits on the front over, previous owner's signature in ink on front free endpaper, slight foxing to top pages fore-edges, very light convex crease on spine, otherwise in near fine condition. Richard George Adams (1920 - ) was born in Newbury, Berkshire, England and is best known for authoring Watership Down, The Plague Dogs, and Shardik. Watership Down came about as a result of stories Adams told his two daughters when they were young. Originally, it was turned down by four publishers before being picked up by Rex Collings, whereupon it became an immediate international success. Watership Down is about a small group of anthropomorphized rabbits who have their own language, culture and mythology. After their warren is destroyed, they adventure out into the world seeking a new home and encounter many difficulties along the way. Watership Down won the prestigious Carnegie Medal and Guardian Prize, among other book awards

        Anne Tyler 17-Volume Collection of Signed First Editions, with Correspondence: The Clock Winder; Celestial Navigation; Searching for Caleb; Earthly Possessions; Morgan's Passing; Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant; The Accidental Tourist; Breathing Lessons; Saint Maybe; Your Place is Empty; Tumble Tower; Ladder of Years; A Patchwork Planet; Back When We Were Grownups; The Amateur Marriage; Timothy Tugbottom Says No!; Digging to America

      An impressive collection of novels by the Pulitzer Prize winning author, comprising all published works released from 1972 to 2006 (and thus missing her first three, and last four, works), as well as her two juvenile titles. Your Place is Empty is also of particular interest, being an imprint of the William B. Ewert fine press in Concord, New Hampshire. With the exception of Digging to America, they are all signed by Anne Tyler directly on the title pages - no small feat considering that, until recently, the author did not make public appearances or grant interviews. Even sending items to her for the purpose of obtaining signatures was a complicated process, as illustrated in the four postcards and three greeting cards included here, in which Tyler requests they be sent such that she can receive them without leaving her home. The original recipient of these also sent the author a number of gifts, for which she expresses thanks in her correspondence. First editions. Each (except Digging to America) signed without inscription by author on title page. The Clock Winder: board edges a bit faded, two tiny spots on top page ridge. Back When We Were Grownups includes publisher's newsletter (laid in). New York: Alfred A. Knopf / G.P. Putnam's Sons / William B. Ewert / Orchard Books, 1972. First Edition. Near Fine/Near Fine.

        Kosmicheskie dali

      1972 - (SOKOLOV, A.K.) LEONOV, Aleskei Arkhipovich. Kosmicheskie dali. Moscow: Ikobrazitel'noe iskusstvo, 1972. Folio (11 by 14-1/2 inches), original marbled blue imitation leather gilt portfolio, metal and enamel cover medallion, original printed self-wrappers; pp. 34, 33 loose color plates. $2800.First edition of Russian cosmonaut A.A. Leonov's work on artificial satellites, with 35 loose color illustrations (17 folding) and 5 additional monochrome red-tone illustrations laid in, signed on the front wrapper by both the illustrator A.K. Sokolov and by Leonov. Text in Russian.This elaborate production by Russian cosmonaut A.A. Leonov concerns artificial satellites and astronautics. "In March 1965, at the age of 30, Soviet cosmonaut Alexei Leonov made the first spacewalk in history, beating out American rival Ed White on Gemini 4 by almost three months. Floating outside his tiny Voskhod 2 capsule for 10 exhilarating minutes, Leonov felt, he writes, "like a seagull with its wings outstretched, soaring high above the Earth" (Air & Space, Smithsonian). Leonov went on to write extensively about his life as an astronaut and about space exploration in general. The wonderful illustrations by A.K. Sokolov display satellites and the landscapes of astronomical bodies as well as space itself in vivid color. The entirety is housed in a handsome publisher's portfolio made of blue imitation leather and bearing a raised metal and enamel medallion with a hammer and sickle. This copy contains two copies of Plate 1, for a total of 35 plates instead of the usual 34. Five additional folio red-tone monochrome illustrations, apparently also by Sokolov, have been laid in; they do not appear to be integral to this edition. The front wrapper also bears an inscription in an unidentified hand in addition to the signatures of Leonov and Sokolov.Small, faint stain on front wrapper/inscription, slight scattered foxing to verso captions of folio plates, light edge-wear to portfolio including small missing piece at top of pocket. A near-fine copy, most desirable signed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        A 2-PAGE TYPED LETTER SIGNED by MILICENT TRYON Addressed to Freudian psychiatrist and criminologist Dr. Arthur Foxe on the subject of sexually motivated murder.

      December 30, 1972.. 1972.. Good. MILICENT TRYON WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR INTRODUCING THE WORD "GENDER" INTO THE LEGAL LANGUAGE - Over 350 words typed on two sheets of 11 inch high by 8- 1/2 inch wide paper. Thanking the psychiatrist and criminologist Dr. Arthur N. Foxe for granting her an interview, Milicent Tryon introduces herself in a way that suggests they have met before: "Applause Magazine folded, my husband and I separated, and Minou had kittens. I now work as a $145 a week secretary, but things could be worse. I get to walk to work (at Columbia)...." Milicent Tryon was Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's secretary at Columbia University. She quickly dives into her subject: "Now, about murder. (Just so your unconscious can be thinking about my questions during the day, I thought I'd send a few.) I want a profile of a typical character who commits sexually-motivated murders...." She follows up with some perceptive observations, paraphrasing the German psychologist Erich Fromm's observations about sadism and provides context from her own life while seeking answers: "(My little summaries seem so pat, so simple, so trite. Yet, I've been around such growth patterns myself, and I have a feeling for this thing that goes beyond understanding. My own mother was created in a laboratory by Tennessee Williams and Vincent Price. Two of her brothers molested me, as fine southern gentlemen do on occasion. And one of my brothers who has been under her influence excessively is on his way to becoming like Uncle. He's also sadistic, unlike Uncle)." Elaborating, she offers subjects for discussion: "A big feminist issue is this women-as-objects thing. Its relation to murder is something I hope you will comment on.... Once a boy has such a crippled childhood, how much of what happens afterwards, when he's in his teens and beyond, makes him into a killer?" Concerned that Dr. Foxe may worry about being misquoted, she asks: "Are you still with me? I definitely want you to look over my version of you comments. I'd hate to make a fool of myself in print.... Enclosed are some of my reviews, just to prove that there are fools who will publish my stuff...." Signed "Milicent".<p>The original mailing envelope is stapled to the letter together with an 11-1/2 inch high by 8- 1/2 inch wide sheet of paper upon which are photocopied three of her film, music and literary reviews.<p>Additionally attached is a 4-page proof, on 11 inch high by 8-1/2 inch wide paper, of Dr. Foxe's essay "Murder". The heavily corrected proof is preceded by a brief biography of the psychiatrist at the top of the cover page. An annotation requesting a "galley proof" is penned by Dr. Foxe on the cover page. Typed and penned strike-outs and ink corrections in DR. FOXE'S HAND abound and several paragraphs are clipped and pasted onto the pages. One such paragraph reads: "But what is the cause of murder? The cause of murder is the same as that which causes other crime--the variants being in quantity, situation and coloring. The three causes of crime are, 1-violence done to the child by those around it, parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, and less frequently non-members of the family. Sustained violence, less frequently, later in life, may have a similar effect, 2- Sanction given the criminal act in childhood by a major parent or equivalent figure. (The mother who sanctions thefts for the household, even if needed, is an example) 3- a general lack of leaven in the family or early childhood situation- warmth, consideration, thought." We've been unable to determine if Dr. Foxe's essay was ever published.<p>Milicent Tryon's letter is in near fine condition, folded for mailing with but minor creases to the corners. Dr. Foxe's manuscript, with its pasted paragraphs and corrections, is in used but nonetheless good condition. <p>Although little information is available about this fascinating woman, she was responsible for replacing the word "sex" with the word "gender" in legal briefs and law. At the invitation of Dean Michael Sovern, Ruth Bader Ginsburg accepted a position at Columbia University in 1972, becoming the Law School's first tenured woman professor. Having successfully argued gender discrimination cases before the Supreme Court, a cause that she continued at Columbia, she became a "Superstar". According to Professor Hans Smit, "She was the only member of the faculty who taught the law that she created." In an April 10, 2009 interview with Professor Deborah Jones Merritt & Professor Wendy Webster Williams, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recalled her time at the school: "Students went through the U.S. Code chapter-by-chapter and reported on the laws that differentiated on the basis of, we say 'gender' now, we said 'sex' then." Prompted by Professor Williams' statement: "We say 'gender' now because of your secretary." Justice Ginsburg replied: "Well, I changed because of her prompt. Other people did for different reasons. But, for me it became altogether clear when my secretary at Columbia said, 'I'm typing these briefs for you and jumping out all over the page is 'sex, sex, sex.' Don't you know that for the male audience you are addressing, the first association of the word 'sex' is not what you're talking about. So, why don't you use a grammar book term? Use 'gender.' It has a neutral sound, and it will ward off distracting associations.' Milicent Tryon was my astute secretary then, and from that day to this, I've used gender." Following that statement Professor Williams observed: "And the Court picked it up."

        La Notte (dai Canti Orfici).

      Castiglioni & Corubolo, 1972. In-4°, legatura editoriale in mezza pelle granata scuro, col nome dell'autore in oro al dorso, acetato protettivo e astuccio muto editoriali, taglio superiore dorato, pp. 31(9), di cui le ultime sette bianche. Raffinata bellissima edizione - con molte vignette e due illustrazioni a piena pagina a colori intercalate nel testo - realizzata in solo ottanta copie numerate, di cui alle prime ventuno si univa una cartella con due dei linoleum del libro impressi con colori diversi. Il nostro esemplare è uno di questi (Numero 19) - la suite dei due linoleum è contenuta nella cartella e nel foglio di giustificazione originali. Ottimo stato di conservazione di questa rara bellissima edizione di uno dei massimi capolavori della poesia italiana. Alberto MANFREDI (Reggio Emilia, 1930 - 2001) è stato pittore e incisore, assistente di Mino Maccari all' Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma e poi, per molti anni, titolare della cattedra di Tecniche dell' incisione a Firenze (e a Firenze aveva esposto varie volte, alle gallerie Pananti e Santo Ficara). Alla sua attività di pittore aveva da sempre affiancato quella di illustratore, anche collaborando a riviste come «Il Gatto Selvatico» di Attilio Bertolucci o come «L' Espresso», ma soprattutto con la realizzazione di stampe originali per molte edizioni d' arte, fra cui le «Memorie lontane» di Guido Nobili stampate dall' Officina Bodoni di Mardersteig per conto dei Cento Amici del Libro, il Dialogo dello Zoppino pubblicato da Gino Nebiolo nelle sue edizioni «All' Insegna del Lanzello», «Il pinguino senza frac» di Silvio D' Arzo, riproposto poi da Einaudi. Amato da scrittori come Bufalino, Sciascia, Bilenchi, e da critici come Pallucchini, Ragghianti, Valsecchi, la sua arte si è sempre mantenuta distante dalle mode, ricercando in se stessa («è fra i pochi pittori che sanno ancora disegnare», diceva di lui Maccari) e nelle sue scaturigini protonovecentesche - da Degas a Beckmann, da Modigliani a De Pisis - le proprie ragioni espressive.
