While copies of the signed limited will periodically show up for sale, copies with contemporary inscriptions - particularly to someone with a close, long-standing connection to the press - are genuinely rare.

        The Ristigouche and its Salmon Fishing with a Chapter on Angling Literature by Dean Sage. Edited by Colonel Henry A. Siegel and Harry C. Marschalk, Jr.

      The Angler's and Shooter's Press, Goshen, CT 1973 - A book of almost legendary importance, recounting the author's adventures at Camp Harmony on the Restigouche River in New Brunswick, and drawing upon his long experience fishing the river. Dean Sage's contributions to angling literature are few in number but profoundly influential: "Ten Days' Sport on Salmon Rivers", published in the Atlantic in 1875, is a classic account. His library catalogue (2 vols.,1896, 1904) remains an important document in the history of angling bibliography and collecting. Sage's section on "The Atlantic Salmon," in Salmon and Trout (1902), is a synthesis of his own first hand knowledge as a fisherman and his assessment of the extensive literature. The Ristigouche and Its Salmon Fishing remains the work for which Sage is best known. A facsimile of the first edition, with additional material, including the signed color plates, an introduction by Arnold Gingrich, and "A Notice of Dean Sage" by Dewitt Sage. Full brown polished calf, triple gilt fillet borders surrounding a gilt design of an osprey catching a salmon on upper cover, gilt spine, t.e.g. Fine copy, housed in a sturdy cloth slipcase With hand-colored frontispiece entitled "Dean Sage's Favorite Flies" by Charles DeFeo (signed by him), an additional color plate after watercolor by Ogden M. Pleissner (signed by him), several black and white plates. 1 vols. 4to Number 225 of 250 copies, initialled by the publisher [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        FEAR AND LOATHING ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL '72 - SIGNED BY RALPH STEADMAN AND GEORGE S. MCGOVERN

      San Francisco: Straight Arrow Books, 1973. First Edition. New. First Printing. A Fine copy in a Near Fine jacket, with the original price of $7.95 intact. The book appears unread, and the second state jacket is a crisp example, showing absolutely none of the fading to the red and blue colored skull on the spine, a typical problem with this title. Other than a few areas of pinpoint rubbing to the corners and bottom edge, the jacket is as nice as we've ever seen. This copy has been signed by both the illustrator, Ralph Steadman and the subject, former Senator and U.S. Presidential candidate George S. McGovern. Steadman has signed via a specially decorated bookplate, which he affixed to this copy himself at an October 31, 2006 event, where he could not sign books due to a severe arthritis flare-up. McGovern signed the half-title page at a recent event. We presented a few copies of this book to him, and after a brief conversation about his friendship with Thompson, he mentioned to us that these were the only copies he could remember anyone bringing to one of his book signings. McGovern ran against, and lost to, Richard Nixon (an arch-nemesis of Thompson's), and Thompson was one of the few journalists who stuck with McGovern throughout his campaign, resulting in a lifelong friendship. While Thompson is almost universally revered for his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, it is far from his best writing. Campaign Trail '72 remains one of the best pieces of political writing written during the 20th century, and along with Thompson's journalistic pieces in The Great Shark Hunt, stands as some of his very best work. A superior copy of book which is almost always found well-worn, signed by both the illustrator/jacket designer and the subject. Publicity material from both events are included with this book.

        ORIGINAL DRAWING FROM BUKOWSKI'S 'NOTES OF A DIRTY OLD MAN' COLUMN

      Los Angeles: Los Angeles Free Press, [1973]. Single sheet of 8.5 X 11 inch stock, with artwork rendered in pen and black ink. Hint of toning to extremities, else Fine. An original drawing by Charles Bukowski, which ran with his 'Notes of a Dirty Old Man' columns in the November 9-15, 1973 issue of the Los Angeles Free Press. The L.A. Free Press (or "Freep," as it was called) ran from 1964-1978, an important counter-culture publication which eventually had an enormous weekly circulation rate. Once L.A.'s 'Open City' newspaper folded in 1969, the Freep picked up Bukowski's 'Notes of a Dirty Old Man' column and ran with it until 1976. Bukowski's 'Notes' column was likely the single largest contributing factor to the spread of his literary fame, as well as his notoriety for being a hard-drinking, hard-living character. This drawing depicts a room scene where a large-breasted woman in garters and heels is sitting seductively on a chair and ottoman, while a man next to her nervously looks on; the drawing is appropriately captioned "Oh, my God!" The drawing came from the personal collection of L.A. poet-publisher Michael C. Ford, a former Freep staffer to whom Bukowski gave these to at the end of his tenure at the newspaper. While Bukowski did hundreds of drawings throughout his career, very few come to the market, and fewer still have seen publication as this one has. A wonderful drawing which succinctly channels the author's 'Dirty Old Man' personna.
