        The Killer Angels

      New York: David McKay Company, Inc., 1974. First edition, first printing. Here is a jacketed first edition, first printing, of Michael Shaara's celebrated Civil War novel.  Michael Shaara (1929-1988) began his career as a writer of short stories, primarily science fiction.  As a prolific short story writer he enjoyed a certain amount of success, winning several awards and having two of his stories produced as television dramas in the late 50s. In the early 60s he began to work on more ambitious projects. His first novel, The Broken Place (1968), was about a soldier who returns from the Korean War and becomes a prizefighter. Though critically praised for its style, The Broken Place was a commercial failure, which sadly set the pattern for Shaara's three novels published in his lifetime.  The Killer Angels followed, the manuscript taking Shaara seven years to complete. Rejected by the first fifteen publishers that saw it, when finally published, The Killer Angels saw little attention and received mixed reviews.  Moreover, the book had the misfortune of being a war novel published during the anti-war apex of the Vietnam War.  It is understandable, then, that it was a surprise for both Shaara and the wider literary community when The Killer Angels received the 1975 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.  Despite this win, there was not much commercial interest in this book until 1993, five years after Shaara's death, when the film based on the novel, Gettysburg, was released. This propelled The Killer Angels to the number one spot on the New York Times bestseller list and prompted an interest in Shaara's other works.  Shaara's interest in the Civil War was spurred by personal history; Shaara's great-grandfather was a member of the 4th Georgia Infantry who was injured at Gettysburg.  Seeking to learn more about his great-grandfather's experiences there, Shaara took a family trip to Gettysburg in 1966.  Perhaps Shaara's compellingly graphic and intuitive writing in The Killer Angels was informed by his own early experience as a paratrooper for the 82nd Airborne Division, an amateur boxer, a merchant seaman, and a police officer.  The Killer Angels now ranks among the most popular and acclaimed works of Civil War fiction.  Celebrated documentary film maker Ken Burns called The Killer Angels "a book that literally changed my life" and said "I had never visited Gettysburg, knew almost nothing about that battle before I read the book, but here it all came alive."  Here is the first edition, first printing in dust jacket.  Condition of both the book and dust jacket is near-fine.  All first edition points are confirmed; there are five lines each on both the top and bottom of the copyright page and no mention of subsequent printings, the binding is light blue cloth boards with a darker blue paper-covered spine, the dust jacket features a photo of the author on the rear panel, no reviews, and no bar code.  The binding remains square, clean, and tight with trivial wrinkling to the spine ends.  The contents are clean and bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks.  The dust jacket is bright and unclipped, retaining the original $8.95 front flap price and showing no losses or tears. We note only light wear to the spine ends and corners.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        Dusklands.

      Raven Press, Johannesburg 1974 - First edition of the Nobel Prize-winning author's first book. Octavo, original cloth. Slight spine lean, else near fine in a near fine dust jacket with just a touch of rubbing to the extremities. A very sharp copy. Dusklands is a pair of novellas in the tradition of Conrad's Heart of Darkness. The first novella "Dusklands" probes the links between the powerful and the powerless. The second novella "Vietnam Project" is narrated by a researcher investigating the effectiveness of United States propaganda and psychological warfare in Vietnam. The question of power is also explored in "The Narrative of Jacobus Coetzee," the story of an eighteenth-century Boer frontiersman who vows revenge on the Hottentot natives because they have failed to treat him with the respect that he thinks a white man deserves.

        Winston S Churchill, His Complete Speeches 1897-1963, full set of 8 volumes

      New York: Chelsea House Publishers in association with R. R. Bowker Company, 1974. First edition. Hardcover. Very good plus. During more than half a century of public life Sir Winston Churchill delivered speeches whose incisive wit, artful cadence, stinging criticism, soaring sentiment, and resolute defiance still echo today. This complete set of 8 massive volumes contains the vast majority of Winston Churchill's speeches from 1897 to 1963. The set is nearly 9,000 pages in length, takes up 18 inches of shelf space, and weighs 34 pounds. Before this incredible undertaking, many of Churchill's speeches had never been published in volume form. A great many of these impressive sets ended up in libraries, and consequently bear ex-library wear and markings. This near fine set is NOT ex-library. The red cloth bindings remain clean and bright with no sunning to the spines. The bindings are tight, with no separation of the massive text blocks. Modest external flaws are limited to minor wrinkling at spine end ends and a trivial blemish on the upper Volume VII front cover. The contents are uniformly bright and clean internally. The volumes appear unused. We find no previous ownership markings. The page edges are likewise bright. We find a trivial, barely discernible hint of spotting confined to the otherwise bright and clean page edges of five volumes. Please note that this large, heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A284.1, Woods/ICS A145(a), Langworth p.349.

This complete set of 8 massive volumes contains the vast majority of Winston Churchill's speeches from 1897 to 1963.

Before this incredible undertaking, many of Churchill's speeches had never been published in volume form. A great many of these impressive sets ended up in libraries, and consequently bear ex-library wear and markings. This set is in very good condition and is *NOT* ex-library. We find no previous ownership markings whatsoever. The contents are uniformly bright, clean, and crisp internally, and feel unread. The top edges show very light soiling and a trace of spotting, but we find no other spotting in the set. Being finicky, we also note a small binding error to Volume I in the form of a bit of extra glue at the headband and a small dent to the Volume I text block at the center of the bottom edge. All eight bindings remain clean and tight with sharp corners. Shelf presentation is superior, with no sunning and only a bit of trivial scuffing or wrinkling of the cloth. We note the slightest warp to the Volume VIII binding which is not significant enough to easily notice or to affect how it sits on the shelf adjacent to Volume VII. Please note this large, heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A284.1, Woods/ICS A145(a), Langworth p.349. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Very contemporary in feel and execution. No reference to this series is found in Whitman's Dia monograph, either in the text or bibliography (although the cover, an orange, is reproduced in the series and credited to a 1976 exhibition poster at Dia). No copies located via OCLC, and no mention online. Whitman is represented by Pace and has shown there since 1967.

        Schriftsteller (1934-1984; Georg-Büchner-Preis 1971): Konvolut aus vier Teilen: 1 eigenh. Postkarte m. U., 1 Brief m. U. und 1 Postkarte m. U. Sheerness (GB), 24. III. (Poststempel) bis 6.IV.1981. Groß-4°. 1 S. und die 2 Postarten. - DABEI: Kuvert.,

      - Alle drei Schreiben mit Johnsons Absenderadresse ("26 Marine Parade /Sheerness / Kent"). - Seit 1974 bis zu seinem Tod im Februar 1984 lebte Uwe Johnson in Sheerness, einer Stadt auf der Isle of Sheppey. - An Wolfram Schütte, Feuilletonredakteur der "Frankfurter Rundschau": (24. III. 1981.) Postkarte mit aufgeklebtem Zeitungsausschnitt eines Artikels von Schütte über Autoren, die sich heuchlerisch darüber beschwert hatten, dass "die Präsentation der zeitgenössischen deutschsprachigen Literatur im Ullstein-Buchverlag praktisch unmöglich gemacht wird", obwohl doch dieser ein zu boykottierender Springer-Verlag sein soll. - In diesem Artikel hatte Schütte den Aphorismus "Mit ihm schlafen: ja; aber nur keine Intimitäten" (richtig) Karl Kraus zugeschrieben. Neben den Ausschnitt aus der FR schreibt Johnson mit der Hand: "Sehr geehrter Herr Schütte: und wenn das [Pfeil zeigt auf den Zeitungsausschnitt] nun von Tucholsky wäre? ." - // - Im Brief vom 3. IV. 1981 bedankt sich Johnson für eine Karte von Schütte und meldet "Beschämung. . Denn als ich Ihnen schrieb, war ich sicher. dieser Satz / Mit ihm schlafen, ja, aber keine Intimitäten / stehe bei Tucholsky, zu sicher, denn ich hätte nachschlagen sollen. Das habe ich nun getan, und das Gesuchte weder unter "Schnipsel" noch "So verschieden ist es im menschlichen Leben" noch "Mitropa, Schlafwagen" gefunden. Ich muss Ihnen glauben, denn Sie haben einen gedruckten Beleg. Aber das bei Ihnen eingefügte "nur", es stört mich. Und immer noch sehe ich den Satz vor mir, wenn ich an die drei Bände Tucholsky denke. Da wären an die viertausend Seiten durchzublättern, und solche Rechthaberei geht mir ab, zu meinem Schaden, denn nun muss ich vor Ihnen kapitulieren und Sie um Entschuldigung bitten für die Umstände, die ich Ihnen bereitet habe. Mit ergebenen Grüssen, / Ihr Uwe Johnson [eigenh. U.] / F.R.- und SCHÜTTE-Abonnent. - // - In der Karte vom 6. IV. 1981 gesteht Johnson "In der Haltung des Ergebens" ein, dass auch das "nur" von Karl Kraus ist und zitiert jetzt ganz genau aus der "Ausgabe: Karl Kraus, Sprüche und Widersprüche . / Sie sagte sich: [im Original unterstrichen] Mit ihm schlafen, ja - aber nur ["nur" im Original unterstrichen] keine Intimität! [die Singularform ist im Original unterstrichen] ." - Sehr schön. Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 550 [Attributes: Signed Copy]
