        The Killer Angels

      New York: David McKay. (1974). Second edition. Fine in a partially spine-faded, near fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author on the front fly: "To Reg -- Merry Christmas! Michael Shaara. Dec. 1974." With the bookplate of the recipient. Shaara was something of a difficult personality, and very seldom signed books. Because of the perfect binding, an ill-fated experiment by the publisher to lower production costs, this book is virtually always cocked, a flaw this copy does not exhibit. Basis for the movie Gettysburg and easily one of the very best and most beloved novels of the Civil War. It was also a surprise winner of the Pulitzer Prize. One of very few signed copies of this title that we've seen. .

        This is Henry, Henry Miller from Brooklyn: Conversations with the Author from The Henry Miller Odyssey

      Los Angeles: Nash Publishing. (1974). First. First edition. Quarto. Fine in very good plus dustwrapper with one longish tear. Inscribed by Miller to his second wife June Mansfield: "For June, Merry Xmas! Henry 1974." Mansfield was perhaps Miller's most important influence, and his muse for most of his earliest and most famous works. In the text of this book Miller relates: "...I was married a few years when I finally ran into 'Mona,' in my books, you know, in the dance hall, and we were caught in bed one morning when I thought my wife had gone on a vacation... So I left her immediately and went to live with June -- 'Mona.' And it was through my new wife that I got the courage to make my final decisions and to live by them... she used to say to me, 'Look, give up that job; Start to write.'" A nice association. .

        [Poster]: Student Council Presents Bruce Springsteen Sun. Apr. 28 1:30PM in Clothier. Students and Guests Only

      [Swarthmore, Pennsylvania: Swarthmore College. 1974]. Poster. Measuring 24" x 18". Printed in red on thin white card stock. Fine. Shrinkwrapped onto foamcore. Poster for an relatively early performance of Bruce and the E Street Band in the nascent stage of their career before they broke out with the 1975 release Born to Run. The free concert was to be held indoors at the Clothier Auditorium but because of unusually good weather was actually held outside in the small Scott Amphitheater with apparently no more than 100 people in attendance. Contemporary reports indicate that Springsteen performed a splendid show, and a splendid time was had by all. Rare. .

        The Diviners

      McClelland and Stewart, Toronto - [0-7710-4748-7] 1974, 1st edition. (Hardcover) Near fine in near fine dust jacket. 382pp. Large Octavo. Original pale green cloth with gilt lettering on spine. Light discolouration to top and bottom of boards, especially at spine. Black endpapers, faded around edges. Tight text block, very clean save for some very light stains on outer edge of text block. In dust jacket, not price clipped. Lightly worn with some very small closed tears to and slight discolouration at edges. A lovely copy. A first edition of the Governor General Award winner, Signed and inscribed by Margaret Laurence. A signature on the front free endpaper identifies this copy as previously belonging to Raymond Hernandez. The inscription, written by Laurence on the title page reads "Ray, Hope and peace, Margaret Laurence, 1974". Stapled to the top of the title page with two staples is a sheet of paper with writing in blue pen. The paper says "8 November, Friday- Dinner 6 pm." Below is the address of, and directions to, the house where Margaret Laurence lived from 1974 till her death in 1987 in Lakefield, on. This house now has a historical plaque placed there by the Lakefield Historical Society in 1993. Below this is written a phone number and below that M. Laurence. As it is written in the same hand as the inscription on the book, and the writing and name look very similar it is assumed that the note was also written by Laurence, who must have invited Hernandez for dinner while signing his copy. Looking at the back of the note reveals that the paper was originally the cover for the Trent University Staff Benefits program- which suggests that he may have been an employee of the University in Peterburough where Laurence worked as a Chancellor from 1981-1983. Placed loosely in the book are two photographs, presumed to be Raymond Hernandez. Though we were unable to attain any more information about Hernandez it is apparant that he was in some way associated with Margaret Laurence, probably on a personal level. Signed and inscribed by Margaret Laurence. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
