Titles include: (1) "Six Days of the Condor" (1974), Grady's bestselling debut novel about a group of top-secret CIA analysts targeted for assassination by a rogue section of the Agency. Grady was just 24 and out of work when he knocked out his manuscript on an old manual typewriter while living in a garage in Missoula, Montana; (2) "Shadow of the Condor"(1975) picks up the story of CIA treachery where "Six Days" left off; (3) "The Great Pebble Affair" (1976), written under the pen name, "Brit Shelby," tells the story of eight people who conspire together to make millions, using "investment capital" stolen from a bank; (4) in "Catch The Wind" (1980), set during the 1970s energy crisis, members of a Montana cattle ranching community find themselves at each other's throats after a strip mining company offers fistfuls of cash to anyone willing to sell his or her grazing lands, which sit collectively atop a vast vein of coal; (5) in "Runner In The Street" (1984), Grady introduces veteran Washington, D.C., private eye John Rankin, who discovers a dark side of the nation's capital even he didn't know about, while investigating the murder of a Harrvard-educated prostitute whose father is a powerful U.S. Senator; (6) in his first paperback original, "Razor Game" (1985), Grady depicts the hunt for a serial killer who inexplicably targets both children and prostitutes, slashing them to death; (7) in "Hard Bargains" (1985), John Rankin reappears, this time to accept an assignment from a femme fatale with a very unusual request; (8) in his second and last paperback original, "Just A Shot Away" (1987), Grady introduces Baltimore homicide detective Devlin Rourke, who hunts for a mysterious assassin who already has slain four Baltimoreans and is gunning for more; (9) "Steeltown" (1989) portrays an epic struggle for wealth and political power among competing interests in a dying American 'rust belt' city; (10) "River of Darkness" (1991) marked Grady's critically acclaimed return to the deadly and murky world of espionage and intrigue among America's spymasters, recently humiliated by their failure to anticipate the Soviet Union's historic collapse; (11) "Thunder" (1994) is another post-Cold War CIA thriller, in which the Company's liaison to the U.S. Senate searches for the killer of a trusted colleague, while trying to avoid becoming his next victim; (12) "White Flame" (1996) finds FBI agents and local police forces scrambling to prevent the planned assassination of a charismatic, but also controversial, black ex-con turned politician, as he travels the country campaigning for president; (13) in "City of Shadows" (2000), published under the pen name "James Dalton," Grady revisits the Watergate era, inventing a chilling "what if?" scenario about what "really" happenened behind the scenes during Richard Nixon's tainted presidency; and, finally, (14) "Mad Dogs" (September 2006), in which five ex-CIA agents confined to a mental hospital (hence, the title) break out after being framed for the murder of their psychiatrist. The book traces their efforts to track down and expose the CIA 'mole' they suspect of having set them up.

        "The majority of the leaders of the Alignment refuse to establish a government of national unity. However, among the public, regardless of their opinions, there is an increasing demand for the special unification. May this yearning bring forth the long-awaited fruit ..." In 1977, less than three years later, Begin's Likud Party defeated the Alignment and he became Israel's Prime Minister.

[Jerusalem, Israel], The Knesset, December 6, 1974. To David Avni, Jerusalem. In Hebrew with full English translation. Light creasing, two file holes in blank right margin with backing on verso. Very Good condition.In full, ""Herewith I confirm receipt of your letter of 10 Kislev 5735 - November 24, 1974, fir which I thank you. I have read your serious and important words with much interest. We agree with you: at the moment, there is a need for a government of national unity, and therefore we continue to demand its establishment, for the sake of our people's firm standing against pressure and testing times. The faith in the future of our people, as expressed in your letter, is an important factor in this standing. This is indeed the way to overcome all the problems. Surely, you have noticed that, for now, the majority of the leaders of the Alignment refuse to establish a government of national unity. However, among the public, regardless of their opinions, there is an increasing demand for the special unification. May this yearning bring forth the long-awaited fruit.""Gen. Yitzhak Rabin had replaced Golda Meir as Prime Minister in June 1974. There were two major political groupings in Israel, the coalition dominated by the Labor Party (the Labor Mapai Alignment), and the Likud coalition dominated by Menachem Begin's Herut Party. On May 17, 1977, the Likud Party won the national elections and on June 21, 1977, the first time in Israeli history a party other than the Alignment/Mapai was in a position to form a government. Begin became Prime Minister, serving from 1977-1983.Menachem Begin served in the first ten Israeli Knessets, the ninth and tenth as Prime Minister. When he wrote this letter, he was a member of Knesset 8, in the Likud parliamentary group."

        Magical and Philosophical Commentaries on the Book of the Law.

      93 Publishing, Montreal 1974 - Hardcover. Large octavo. xx + 346 pp. Gilt decorated royal blue cloth with gilt title O.T.O. lamen, etc. to spine, gilt stele design on front and back cover. Colour printed endpapers, frontis photo of Crowley, color illustrations, index. Printed in red and black throughout. A beautifully produced and highly important collection of Crowley's commentaries on "The Book of the Law." It includes a Foreword by Kenneth Grant. Original errata slip loosely inserted. With the bookseller's label of "The Equinox" bookshop on the front pastedown. "The Equinox" was an occult bookselling and publishing venture that was set up by Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin fame in the affluent London suburb of Kensington in the mid-1970s. Sadly it only ran for a few years before closing. The cloth is overall quite dulled - although this is only really obvious if it is put next to a truly bright copy - and the boards are darkened around the edges. Some light creasing to the spine, althoug unusually the spine gilt has NOT flaked, as it commonly does with a few readings. A little light bruising to the corners, page edges darkened with a few grubby marks, not affecting the margins. Otherwise a a tight, clean VG copy with an interesting connection to London's 1970s occult scene. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Power Broker.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1974. First edition of the author's Pulitzer-Prize winning work on Robert Moses. Thick octavo, original black cloth, cartographic endpapers. Signed by Robert A. Caro on the title page. Small name to the endpaper, near fine in a a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Dust jacket design by Paul Bacon. A very nice example of this bulky book, which tends to show wear. One of the most acclaimed books of our time, winner of both the Pulitzer and the Francis Parkman prizes, the Power Broker tells the hidden story behind the shaping (and mis-shaping) of twentieth-century New York and makes public what few have known: that Robert Moses was, for almost half a century, the single most powerful man of our time in New York, the shaper not only of the city's politics but of its physical structure and the problems of urban decline that plague us today. "Surely the greatest book ever written about a city." (David Halberstam) Theodore H. White called it "A masterpiece of American reporting. It's more than the story of a tragic figure or the exploration of the unknown politics of our time. It's an elegantly written and enthralling work of art."

Offsetting from printed text, else fine in stiff green wrappers with a tonal pattern and printed paper label. (Bohlman & Holzapfel, The Folk Songs of Ashkenaz, pp. 34-36).

        Absolute One-Step Photography offprint WITH initial press release examples

      London: Headley Brothers Ltd, 1974. First Separate Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. First Separate Edition. 7 pages plus 4 pages center fold with color illustrations of chemistry of SX-70 integral film and sample images. 8 1/4 x 11 inches. Tan printed wrappers. We also include the sample of press release information released by Polaroid at the time (less the issue of Scientific American with their first advertisement). Wraps. Edwin H. Land, the President of Polaroid, was the inventor of the in-camera self-processing photographic system. We know it as the social phenomena called the Polaroid SX-70, first released in 1973. Many of us were the subjects of the famous "click, chunk, whirrrr" followed by the magical appearance of a photograph which developed before our eyes. Gone was the necessity to send film to the lab for developing. Or in earlier innovations from Polaroid, the need to time the film, taking it apart, and fix it all the while trembling in anticipation of the world of hurt from our family if that precious first step of baby Tammy didn't appear right. Land realized quite early that the instant gratification, instant development film camera would revolutionize picture taking for the masses. While the camera was expensive in the beginning, almost $200 plus $7 for each film pack, by 1974 (a year after release) some 700,000 had been sold. The first generation of true instant selfies became reality. In this offprint, The Royal Photographic Society reprints a speech by Edwin H. Land in May 1973 where he detailed not only some of the history, but many of the detailed technical workings of the camera for his fascinated audience. Scarce, and a piece of our cultural history, described in a technical light. "We now reproduce for the first time Dr. Land's description and illustration of the journal of the potassium ions which is such an essentail part of the whole subject. Those who were present at the lecture will remember that during the evening a num,ber of photographs of flowers, etc. were taken with the new camera and some of these are reproduced in the centre pages." Scarce both in the marketplace and institutionally, with no copies traced as of this listing.

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.

        Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values

      New York: William Morrow & Company, 1974. First edition of the author's groundbreaking work. Octavo, original half cloth. Boldly signed by Robert M. Pirsig on the front free endpaper. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. A sharp example of an important book, uncommon signed. "Enormously influential journey of self-discovery permeated by philosophical discussion, and startlingly original and disturbing imagery, based on an autobiographical account of a journey across the USA on a motorbike undertaken with his son in 1968; the shifts between narrative, analogy, and philosophical meditation have prompted several critics to see this work as a latter-day Moby-Dick" (Stringer, 532).
