        The Best and the Brightest

      New York: Random House, 1972. First edition of the author's magnum opus. Octavo, original blue cloth. Inscribed by the author, "For Barbara Firgir with best wishes David Halberstam." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. The Best and the Brightest, Pulitzer Prize winner David Halberstam's… most important and impressive book, sets out to discover why America got involved in the worst and messiest war in our history. 'What was it about the men, their attitudes, the country, its institutions and above all the era which had allowed this tragedy to take place?' They were, after all, 'the best and the brightest,' so why did it happen? It happened, Halberstam concludes, because, 'they had, for all their brilliance and hubris and sense of themselves, been unwilling to look and learn from the past." In 1992, looking back over 20 years to this first publication of The Best and the Brightest, "Halberstam noted that the book's title had entered the language, but not quite as he had hoped. 'It is often misused,' he wrote, 'failing to carry the tone or irony that the original intended" (New York Times).

        Openers (Signed First Edition)

      Pyramid Publishing Company Austin, TX: Pyramid Publishing Company, 1972. First Edition. First Edition. SIGNED by Roky Erickson on the front flyleaf. A book of poems written by Erickson, legendary singer and songwriter for the 13th Floor Elevators, during his stay at the Rusk Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Austin. The only physical evidence of his creative endeavors made between electroconvulsive shock therapy treatments, which included the formation of a band with fellow inmates called The Missing Links, and reportedly writing nearly 100 songs. Working with his childhood friend George Kinney, Erickson published this volume while still institutionalized. A collection of 45 poems, nearly all of which are extremely positive and upbeat ("Let's Have a Never-Ending Love Contest," "When You Get Delighted," and "Thank God for Civilization" are a few examples). Outside of anthologies, perhaps the only volume of poetry ever published with the poems arranged in alphabetical order. Erickson would take a different turn upon his release, forming a hard rock band called Roky Erickson and the Aliens, writing almost exclusively about satanism and riffing on classic horror films. Toward the end of the 1970s he again went into a long period of mental decline and has only recently begun to perform again. A rare title, nearly impossible to find with a contemporary signature. A second collection, titled "Openers II," containing Erickson's song lyrics, essays, and interviews, was published 23 years later, in 1995. Very Good plus in moderately soiled, white cloth-covered boards, a gilt peace/cross symbol design on the front board, gilt spine titles, and no dust jacket as issued.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Earl J. Silbert, Seymour Glanzer, and Donald E. Campbell were the three government prosecutors in the Watergate case. Handwritten words in bold type. Begins, ?me have criticized me for the role that I played as an active judge in the Watergate Break-in case. But what was I to do? I was not blind or deaf. Here was Barker, receiving envelopes of money through the mail, claiming that he didn?know where they were coming from. And there sat Liddy, refusing to testify, with evidence showing that he had received $199,000. From where and from whom? And for what purpose? And the Government simply wasn?getting into the meat of the matter, they weren?asking the proper questions to get beyond what had often been called the ?ird-rare burglary?To put it bluntly, I disagreed with the prosecutors?heory of investigation and examination of the witnesses. Now, I don?mean to overly criticize the Government, that is, Messrs. Silbert, Glanzer, et. al. I don?believe that they were, in any way, dishonest. Perhaps a bit na? but not dishonest?? didn?require any special talents genius, although, perhaps, a great deal of experience and instincts to see how the evidence was unfolding and to put two and two together or in other words seeing how the jig saw puzzle fit together. It was obvious that there was more to the case than the third-rate burglary that was being prosecuted or the statement made by Zeigler of the White House Staff etc. I also knew and felt that a judge, in searching for the truth, could do what the government could not do. So I took over the questioning of the witnesses, after counsel for both sides questioned them, out of the presence of the jury, starting with Barker, asking forty-two questions: (tr. pp.) (Cite questions and answers verbatim)??have found support and gratification for my actions in the Court of Appeals decision ?>(also cite language of U.S. Court of Appeals in affirmind [sic, affirming] Mitchell ?ldeman & Ehrlichman etc And the Federal Rules of Evidence have also gone in this direction ?mply stated, I had no intention of sitting on the bench like a nincompoop and watching the ?rade of what appeared to be untruthful or unwilling witnesses go by-?i> The fifth page, in full, ?>as Senator Ervin said during one of the Senate Hearings: ?ey almost got away with it?etc. Note: Might be a good place to quote from ?mund Burke?nd ?omas Aquinas cited in my receiving an honorary degree from City U of N.Y. ?5/75 (see attached) (3) Autograph Manuscript unsigned in pencil, 6p, 8? 12?separate lined sheets.

The Court was adjourned until January 15th. Defense attorney Henry B. Rothblatt was fired by burglars Bernard L. Barker, Frank Sturgis, Eugenio R. Martinez, and Virgilio R. Gonzalez when he refused to condone their change of plea to guilty. Judge Sirica named attorney Alvin Newmyer to represent them. The first 11 pages comprise a transcript of proceedings ?t of Presence of Jury,?i> about the jury having no access to a radio or newspapers while sequestered and about the defendants?hange of lawyer and plea. In part, ?. NEWMYER: These four defendants ?ve all individually notified me that they desire to withdraw their not guilty pleas and plead guilty to the indictment?i> From the detailed 2nd count, in part, ?E COURT: Now, I advise each one of you that each one of you are charged with the following crimes -- first, I will summarize what they are and go into little more detail: Under Count One, known as the conspiracy count, all of you, I take it, have read the counts in the indictment with which you are charged, there are seven altogether.

Ehrlichman recalls the day at Camp David when President Nixon asked for his resignation. In part, ìHe broke down at one point and cried. He said that he regretted very much having to take this step, that he felt that I had been or tried to be his conscience and I replied that I hadnít been as effective as I would like. He said that on reflection my judgment had been correct, that he would like to help me with my attorneysí fees were necessary, that he had a large sum of money available to him, that he would like to have me share in. I told him I could not accept that offer ÿ He asked if there were anything else that he could do for me. I said that sometime I would like him to explain to our children -- (witness sobbing).

      Little Brown (1972)., Boston: - First edition. One of the dedication copies. From the collection of Adeline Lubell-Naiman. INSCRIBED on dedication page below the printed names, "Could this be for your distinguished service in Maidstone dear old editor darling? / Love / Norman." A collection of essays, excerpts, etc., written from 1967 to 1972. First book appearance for many. In addition to Adeline, the book is dedicated to his sister Barbara, daughter Susan, and to "Al." Small tear at head of spine, still about very good in slightly soiled white dust jacket with several tears. Adeline Lubell-Naiman was the editor instrumental in the eventual publication of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD. In 1946, while an editor at Little, Brown, Lubell-Naiman convinced Mailer to submit the first 200 pages of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD, which she talked up to her publisher. Unfortunately, she was also the one to suggest historian and critic Bernard DeVoto read the manuscript--he recommended not publishing. But Mailer submitted it to Rinehart, who published the book in 1948. Over the years, Lubell-Naiman remained close friends with Mailer and his wives. In the summer of 1968 she even played the role of "Adeline McCarthy," a president of a women's college in Mailer's film "Maidstone" (Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center website).
