        Dispatches [Rare Inscribed Copy]

      NY: Knopf. 1977. Herr, reporting for Rolling Stone and Esquire from Vietnam, was -- along with such now-legendary figures as Tim Page, Sean Flynn and Dana Stone -- one of the young writers who brought the 1960s counterculture and the New Journalism to war reporting, describing Vietnam as the "first rock-and-roll war" and influencing the way future generations would see the conflict -- mostly by writing his reports largely from the perspective of the foot soldiers in the war rather than that of the strategists and commanders. Herr&#39;s dispatches were eagerly awaited at the time, and are now viewed as classics of war reporting. They helped shatter the official picture of an orderly progression to the war and define the "credibility gap" that made Vietnam war reporting so different from that of earlier conflicts. This copy is inscribed by the author "with regards and best wishes." Fine in a fine dust jacket. One of the small handful of classics of Vietnam War literature -- considered by many the best nonfiction work to come out of the war -- and a book that is almost never found signed or inscribed; this is only the second signed copy we&#39;ve seen since the book was new. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        English Bread and Yeast Cookery. With illustrations by Wendy Jones.

      London: Allan Lane 1977 - First edition, 8vo, xxii, 591, (1) pp. Photographic illustrations plus drawings in the text. Loosely inserted are two excellent autograph letters from the author. Cloth, d.w., price clipped, a fine copy. The two letters, one on David&#146;s headed paper, are both two pages long. To the same recipient, the first is dated December 1974 and is a spirited piece of invective, starting with a complaint about the publisher David Higham ("Hasn&#146;t he got anything to do? he just won&#146;t stay sacked. Roald Dahl. said &#145;get rid of him, he&#146;s a prick&#146;. I&#146;m afraid that in this household that&#146;s what he&#146;s known as.") before moving onto the subject of bread ("I wish Mother and her Home Pride would stay on strike forever.") and newspaper recipes ("One says put your dough into polythene bags and doesn&#146;t say how you pull it out - if indeed you can.")The second, dated March 1976, is more sober in tone, concerning as it does the recipient&#146;s health, and David touches on her own problems ("I had the equivalent of a coronary when I had that stroke. one may be thankful that these horrible warnings sometimes come at an age when one can make a good recovery."), but finishes with an amusing vignette of going to receive her OBE ("Just as I was going in to do my curtsey the gold-stick-in-waiting bent down and hissed in my ear &#145;I make all my bread according to your instructions."). Very scarce examples of Elizabeth David&#146;s prolific correspondence and forceful character.
