        The Sixteenth Round: From Number 1 Contender to #45472.

      New York: Viking Press, 1974. First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Light wear to the bottom cloth, very good in a very good dust jacket with a few small closed tears to the spine. Signed by the author "Rubin Hurricane Carter" on the half-title page. Uncommon signed. Written from prison and first published in 1974, The Sixteenth Round chronicles Hurricane's journey from the ring to solitary confinement. The book was his cry for help to the public, an attempt to set the record straight and force a new trial. Bob Dylan wrote his classic anthem "Hurricane" about his struggle, and Muhammad Ali and thousands of others took up his cause. The power of Carter's voice, as well as his ironic humor, makes this an eloquent, soul-stirring account of a remarkable life. "When they come to list the greatest boxers, Hurricane's name isn't likely to pop up in the Top 10. But when they come to list the greatest figures of the 20th century, he'll be alone at the peak" (The Boston Globe).

      San Bernardino: D-J Books, 1974. From the book's prospectus, issued just before the publication of the book: "In 1934, Zane Grey wrote a beautiful story for his daughter, Betty Zane, under the titile, The Adventures of Finspot, and commissioned a well-known artist to ilustrate it. This previously unpublished book, by the most famous of all western authors, has been made available, for the first time, and we have been given the privilege of publishing it... A limited edition, of which 900 copies will be available for sale, will be ready for distribution about the 15th of May, 1974. Designing and printing has been done by the Sagebrush Press. This limited edition has been composed of hand set type especially purchased for the book and printed on fine, long-life paper...Illustrations, by the artist Sverre Holnsen, reproduced in full color, will be available in this edition, only." The story is preceded by an introduction by Betty Zane Grosso. (It has been said that while 950 were printed, many or most were lost during a flood, and judging by the scarcity, this could well be true.) Fine copy. While it is not signed by the author, of course, it does have an interesting ink note on the front free endpaper: "To Loren - Merry Christmas - With love - Betty," the book having been given to Loren by Betty Zane. The authenticity of this is pretty well established, as we purchased this book from Loren. (Copy # 10 of 950.) . First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine. Illus. by Sverre Holnsen.

        Oregon Trail 1975-2000

      Eugene: Bend in the River Council. (1974). An ambitious project conceived by Kesey (as Co-Director) and others to form a Council to address the major problems facing Oregon (and by extension, the U.S.) in a manner which would expose the issues to the public at large and allow for public input. This is a press kit cum prospectus for the council, including numerous separate pieces, e.g. a copy of a letter to Kesey from the Governor, lauding the project; a two-page set of proposals for the creation of the council and its structure and agenda; two issues of The Bend in the River Reality, a broadsheet newspaper, to which Ken Kesey and Ken Babbs, among others, contribute to Issue 1, the "Special Armory Issue," and the same contributions appear in Issue Number 2, the "Special Coast Issue"; there are two magazine-format issues of The BITR Papers, with different color covers and variant content, some of which overlaps with other items in the lot. The intent of the project was to create an educated, informed "Enlightened Constituency" that would "influence not only the state's politicians, the populace and the industry, but the future course of her sister states as well, and thus help steer this nation through the uncharted waters before us." While it may not be attributable to this particular effort, Oregon has become something of a bellwether for the rest of the region and for the country as a whole; one way or another, the project has in many ways largely come to fruition. All housed in a Bend in the River Council folder. Edge-sunned and musty; very good. Rare. First Edition. No Binding.

      1974. CARRIE. SCREENPLAY by LARRY COHEN and PAUL MONASH. ADAPTED from the NOVEL by STEVEN KING (note that STEPHEN KING" is misspelled in this First Draft as "STEVEN KING"). This is an ORIGINAL FIRST DRAFT SCREENPLAY. At this point the film, Carrie, was in early development. This was, perhaps, a spec script under the umbrella of Producer Paul Monash. Stephen King stated that in 1974 he was paid only $2,500 for the film rights to Carrie. He added that he was only 26 at the time. that Carrie was his first book, and that in hindsight it probably helped his career a great deal. (For $2,500 I guess that the scriptwriters didn't feel obligated to spell Stephen King's name correctly in the First Draft!) This First Draft follows King's novel, however later drafts and the final script are all substantially different (see info on the production of the film at the end of this listing). Bound in blue card covers with metal binding brackets, a window is cut out of the front cover to expose the title on the title-page. The inner pages are photocopied on 8.5x11" paper (photocopying was, and still is, how original copies of a draft script were quickly produced and distributed to film producers, agents, directors, and others involved in a motion picture production), pages printed on one side only, 141 pages plus a title page. This was obviously an early copy machined copy, as the pages have numerous marks, smudges, dark areas, etc., all of which are indicative of those not very good early copy machines. On the rear page edges (the spine) is hand-written "CARRIE Copy 2 RETURN TO L.C." I assume this indicates that this is the second copy of this script and that was supposed to be returned to the writer, Larry Cohen. On the title page is handwritten at the top a "#2". The title-page has the printed information "FIRST DRAFT" "A PAUL MONASH PRODUCTION" and "STEVEN KING" (sic). There is NO date, however it is circa 1974 or early 1975. There are some editorial margin notes, and some underlining and circling of text, here and there throughout. HOWEVER, these are copied onto this "Copy 2". Only the writing on the spine and the "#2" on the title page appear to be handwritten directly onto this copy of the First Draft. The title page includes the printed name/address/phone of the ZIEGLER ROSS AGENCY, with its telephone: "CRestview 8-0070". This information on the title page probably indicates that this "First Draft" was being shipped by the ZR Agency to potential film distributors, and that the film was not yet tied to United Artists. (UA distributed the film in 1976). VERY GOOD condition, the simple metal bracketed card covers have sunning to the margins and some edge wear, the inner pages have some corner creases, there are numerous copy-machine spots, smudges and marks but the script is always legible. SCARCE - this is the only copy of this first draft screenplay of CARRIE that I have ever seen, and is my only copy. Quite a treasure for the Stephen King collector. You can read about the Film Carrie on Wikipedia and elsewhere on the Internet. Very Good

      Dat. London 3. März 74. - U. 8° und 4°. 1 S. (Brief) und 1 ½ SS. (Leserbrief). Sprache: Deutsch, Die Erschießung des Anarchisten Georg von Rauch durch die Polizei hatte Fried im "Spiegel" von "Vorbeugemord" beschrieben und war deswegen vom Berliner Polizeipräsidenten Klaus Hübner wegen Beleidigung angezeigt worden. Beim Aufsehen erregenden Prozeß im Januar 1974 wurde Fried freigesprochen und auch sein Verleger Klaus Wagenbach, der Frieds Text nachgedruckt hatte, kam in erster Instanz frei. Daraufhin zeigte sich der Polizeipräsident in einem offenen Brief erschüttert über die Freisprüche. Auf diesen Leserbrief reagierte nun wiederum Erich Fried mit dem hier vorliegenden langen Leserbrief. Fried spricht hier die Tode von Benno Ohnesorg, Georg von Rauch und Thomas Weisbecker an, die durch Polizeikugeln starben und fragt sich, warum der Polizeipräsident bei seiner Hetze gegen Intellektuelle noch im Amt bleiben kann. - Mit zahlr. eh. Korrekturen und Ergänzungen. - Frieds Leserbrief an die "Frankfurter Rundschau" wurde nicht veröffentlicht. - Gefaltet. - Der Leserbrief von Hübner liegt als Kopie bei.

      [Vietnam, Thailand, and elsewhere in Asia, as well as the United States, Europe, and the Middle East, 1974. Most of the slides preserved in their original Kodak processing boxes. Some photographs loose, but most bound into albums. On the whole, in near fine condition. A large and remarkable archive of images from Vietnam and Thailand, covering the decade from the Gulf of Tonkin incident and the beginning of the buildup of American forces in Vietnam to a year before the evacuation of the American embassy. The most notable aspect of the collection are the many images showing the training of local security forces by American civil and military advisors. The collection was compiled by Jacob Harris, an employee of USAID's "Office of Public Safety" (OPS), whose task was to train Vietnamese and Thai police and counterinsurgency forces. Most of the images, in the form of photographs and photographic slides, were created by Harris, his wife, or his associates, and illustrate all aspects of life in those countries at the time. Harris travelled widely throughout the region, and the collection includes images from not only Vietnam and Thailand, but also from Laos, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macao, Malaysia, India, and elsewhere. The images also document Harris' lengthy career as a New Jersey State Trooper and his travels in other parts of the world. Jacob Joseph Harris (ca. 1910-2005), also known as "Jack" and "Jake," served for thirty-six years (1928-64) with the New Jersey State Police, eventually attaining the rank of major. Included herein is a printed card, dated Dec. 31, 1960, marking thirty years of Harris' service to the state of New Jersey. In 1964 he began what he called his "second career," taking a position with the U.S. Agency for International Development, and was stationed first in Vietnam and then in Thailand. As his postings permitted, he was joined by his wife of many years, Virginia, and she appears in a great number of the photographs. Harris was associated mostly with USAID's "Office of Public Safety," which was established in 1957 to train the police forces of America's overseas allies. The OPS was often used by the Central Intelligence Agency as a cover for its agents abroad, and operated in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia until it was shut down by Congress in 1974. At other times Harris was a part of the State Department's "Office of Missions." Whether or not Harris was directly employed by the CIA has not been ascertained, and it seems that his actual role in Vietnam and Thailand was in fact the training of local police and paramilitary forces. However, Harris' proximity to high ranking officials in the governments of South Vietnam and Thailand, as well as the nature of many of the photographs in this collection, show that he played an active and important role in training local forces to fight the Vietcong and Thai insurgents. And it is certainly true that the various departments and agencies of the U.S. government in southeast Asia at that time (those operating overtly or covertly) worked together toward their common goal. Jacob Harris ended his career at the State Department in Washington, and retired to Florida in 1975. A slide included as part of the collection explains the "Objective of U.S. Assistance to Civil Police Programs & Paramilitary Forces Overseas." Among these are "encourage humane responsible police administration; enforce the law & maintain public order with minimum use of force; counter subversion & terrorism; improve the character and image of civil police & paramilitary forces binding them more closely to the community." A large percentage of the photographs and slides in this collection show Jacob Harris with the Vietnamese and Thai officials and officers whom he worked with, trained, and advised during his decade of service. Included are images of military and political leaders, members of the Thai royal family, and members of military and police forces. A number of the photographs show police operations against members of the Vietcong or other subversive organizations, several of them showing dead bodies. One album is devoted to photographs showing a Thai operation against revolutionaries, with pictures of soldiers, dead and mangled bodies of the enemy, and members of the Thai forces recuperating and being commended at their hospital beds. This same album contains a number of typescripts in Thai that appear to describe the actions depicted. A few other photographs have manuscript ink notes (apparently in Jacob Harris' hand) identifying the scene. One, showing a dead body, is captioned "Vietcong," while another, dated April 2, 1969, shows a Thai military force (with some members identified), with a caption explaining that they were "assigned to eliminate Durae Gang." Some photographs are quite chilling in their juxtaposition, as in one album where pictures of the Harrises and their friends at the beach are displayed beside photographs of dead Vietcong soldiers. The photographs and slides show Harris and his American colleagues (and often their wives) interacting with Vietnamese and Thai officials, the local citizenry, and each other. One group of images shows a party thrown for Harris and his wife when they were reassigned from Vietnam to Thailand in 1968, in the wake of the Battle of Hue. Several images show Harris visiting villages and interacting with locals, and the difficulty of lives of Thai and Vietnamese villagers is clearly evident. Many of these images show villages populated mostly by the elderly, women, and small children. The absence of most men speaks volumes; they may have left to fight for the Army of the Republic of Vietnam or the Vietcong, or they may have lost their lives. It is clear from the images in this collection that despite the hardships encountered by American troops in Vietnam, USAID officials lived comfortable lives. Many of the photographs show them at parties, vacationing at beach resorts, lounging by swimming pools, etc. As mentioned, though stationed in Vietnam and then Thailand, Harris travelled widely throughout Asia, including to Hong Kong, Singapore, Macao, Malaysia, and Laos. He also travelled throughout the countries he was stationed in, and there are images in this archive of Saigon, the Vietnamese provincial capital of Dalat, Danang, Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Angkor Wat, and much more. Many of the images of Vietnam show a country that still bears a heavy French influence, before the Communist takeover of the 1970s. Other images show trips taken by the Harrises to Europe and the Middle East, as well as photographs documenting Harris' life in New Jersey and his earlier career with the state police. The more than 1,700 photographs are a mixture of black and white and color, ranging in size from 2 3/4 by 3 1/2 inches to 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches, though a handful are larger. Included are more than fifty boxes of slides, some 2,000 original slides in all. The images in the slides appear to have been taken by Harris or his wife, and are in color. As with the photographic prints, the slides are a mixture of military and non-military scenes: parades, assemblies featuring police and military officials, pictures of village life, aerial views of the Vietnamese and Thai countryside, etc. There are many images of American military airplanes and equipment, training exercises, aerial views of the countryside, several images of the de-militarized zone, and much more. One group of slides shows an anti-American parade in Vietnam, featuring signs reading "Kick out Taylor," protesting the 1964 appointment of Gen. Maxwell Taylor as ambassador to South Vietnam. As a military advisor to President Kennedy, Taylor had enthusiastically supported sending more American combat troops to Vietnam. Other slides show Jacob Harris accompanying a Vietnamese delegation on a visit to the United States, during which they went to Washington and to New Jersey, where they met with his old colleagues in the New Jersey State Police. Yet another box of slides is labeled "Hong Kong" and "Red Chinese border," containing a number of views of Hong Kong in the late 1960s, as well as views of mainland China. Other images document visits by American dignitaries to Thailand and Vietnam, and there is a series of slides featuring Harris with ARVN general Nguyen Chanh Thi, and others showing Harris and police officers at the strategically important Hai Van Pass near Danang. One group of thirty-five slides, housed in a box labeled "DMZ bombing," shows the aftermath of an air raid (presumably by U.S. forces), with bombed-out buildings and ruined villages and countryside. Other images show bombed out buildings in a more urban setting. In all, a massive archive of images documenting American activities at the local and police levels in Vietnam and Thailand over the course of a crucial decade. The Harris archive is a wealth of views of all aspects of life in the region during this period which help deepen our understanding of the effects of the American presence in southeast Asia during the era of the Vietnam War.
