        [James Cagney]: The American Film Institute [2nd Annual] Award for Life Achievement in Motion Pictures and Television 1974 [*SIGNED* by Cagney and 33 of his friends and colleagues]

      [Washington DC]: The American Film Institute. Good. [1974]. First Edition. Stapled wraps. NOISBN . [a much-handled copy, with various creases to covers and external rubbing and light soiling -- but consider who all handled it!] (B&W photographs) A spectacular copy of the tribute book for the AFI's second annual award, the first presented to an actor, which has been SIGNED not only by the honoree himself, but also by 33 other guests who were present at the dinner on March 13, 1974, at which the award was bestowed -- a truly incredible assemblage of showbiz luminaries, many of them legends on a par with Cagney himself. The complete list of signatures, nearly half of which appear on the introductory page with the rest scattered throughout the booklet (often next to a photograph of the signer, sometimes with a personal inscription added) is: Peter Bogdanovich, Joan Blondell, Ray Bradbury, Mary Brian, Mae Clarke (she who got the grapefuit in the puss from Cagney in THE PUBLIC ENEMY), Dan Dailey, Doris Day, Kirk Douglas, Charlton Heston, Bob Hope, Martha Hyer, Allen Jenkins, Jack Lemmon, Mervyn LeRoy, Frank McHugh, Shirley MacLaine, Aileen Manning, Rouben Mamoulian, Virginia Mayo, Ronald Reagan, Nancy Davis Reagan, Rex Reed, Debbie Reynolds, Nelson Riddle, Rosalind Russell, George C. Scott, Frank Sinatra, Alexis Smith, John Wayne, Mae West, William Wellman, Billy Wilder and Loretta Young. Includes two short articles, "The Unforgettable Young Man" by Joan Blondell, and "James Cagney: A Few Thoughts on the Next 2 Billion Years" by Ray Bradbury (both authors' signatures appear on the same page as their contributions); plus numerous comments from Cagney's professional colleagues and friends. The program's original owner, to whom the inscriptions are addressed, was Gene Ringgold, best-known within the movie industry as a veteran script doctor, a fact referenced in several of the inscriptions. At the time of the award, Cagney had been retired from the screen for 13 years, but was subsequently lured back for two appearances, notably in Milos Forman's RAGTIME (1981) and much less notably in the dreadful 1984 TV-movie TERRIBLE JOE MORAN. But unlike in, say, classical music, in the movies you can exit on a sour note and still leave a magnificent symphony of a career behind. Signed by Collection of Signatures .

        The Dispossessed

      New York: Harper & Row,, 1974. An Ambiguous Utopia. Octavo. Original green cloth-backed boards, light green paper to covers, titles to spine in black and silver, and gilt to upper board, green endpapers. With the dust jacket. Spine faintly faded, but otherwise an exceptionally fine copy in the lightly marked jacket with some rubbing to head of spine panel. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Tom Disch, Solidarity Forever! Ursula, IX '79". For 46 years, before shooting himself on Independence Day 2008, Tom Disch wrote a "literary" kind of science fiction that set him alongside the greats of the genre, described by the critic John Clute as "perhaps the most respected, least trusted, most envied and least read of all modern first-rank S-F writers." Though there must have been mutual regard between Disch and Le Guin, it is also true that Disch's sardonic cynicism (as is more than amply laid out in his work of sci-fi criticism, "The Dreams our Stuff is Made Of") could not allow him to feel anything but contempt for Le Guin's more "affirmative" attitudes when it came to her feminist politicisation of the art form in which they both worked. In Disch's words, "Ideology breeds nonsense and ... Le Guin's work has undergone a gradual PC ossification". In this respect, Le Guin's open and outreaching inscription strikes a jarring note, and makes this copy an excellent document of disconnect between two giants of the genre.

His visit overlapped with one of Pennsylvania Governor Milton Shapp, in China to promote trade with his state.& & Typed Letter Signed, Peking Liaison letterhead, December 3, 1974, to Shapp, expressing his satisfaction with how well Kissinger's visit had gone. "...First, I want to thank you for including Barbara and me at that lovely banquet...It was the most sumptuous feast I've ever seen....I hope our paths cross soon again in the future. Bar flew off with Secretary Kissinger to spend Christmas with the kids and she'll be back early in January. If you are in Washington, give her a ring. I will be here since I didn't feel I should leave this soon after just arriving. It wouldn't be fair to the others at USLO...I think the Kissinger visit went very well. The Chinese seemed pleased and the tone of the meetings was excellent..." He adds in holograph, referring to a small gift from Shapp, "My Milton S. pen is in my pocket!" Obtained directly from the Shapp family. Included is a retained copy of Shapp's letter to response to Bush's, along with an article on Christianity in China he sent along with it.& & Kissinger's meetings helped pave the way for President Ford's visit the following year, as relations between the two nations continued to warm.

      New York: The Viking Press. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Fine. FIRST EDITION of Pynchon&#39;s masterpiece, one of the most celebrated works of modern literature; winner of the National Book Award for 1974. "Pynchon&#39;s Gravity&#39;s Rainbow (1973) is a tour de force in 20th-century literature. In exploring the dilemmas of human beings in the modern world, the story, which is set in an area of post-World War II Germany called "the Zone," centres on the wanderings of an American soldier who is one of many odd characters looking for a secret V-2 rocket that will supposedly break through the Earth&#39;s gravitational barrier when launched. The narrative is filled with descriptions of obsessive and paranoid fantasies, ridiculous and grotesque imagery, and esoteric mathematical and scientific language. For his efforts Pynchon received the National Book Award, and many critics deemed Gravity&#39;s Rainbow a visionary, apocalyptic masterpiece" (Britannica). New York: Viking Press, (1973). Octavo, original orange cloth, original dust jacket. Book near-fine with creasing to small section of text block; dust jacket price-clipped and with small ink number ("1049") written on front flap; otherwise dust jacket remarkably bright and fine with no edgewear.

First Edition. Quarto. SIGNED by the publisher, Kazuo Kitai. Shot in the Provoke style, but with the rural and traditional subject matter championed by Kitai.
