        Reagan tells the widow of the man who gave him his first job in 1932 of his busy life on the speech circuit and radio shows, shoring up his run for President ? He also lovingly tells of his ranch in Santa Barbara ? the following year he declared his candidacy for President

      "Autograph Letter Signed ?Love Dutch,? 1 page, 7.25? x 10.5?. Letterhead: ?Ronald Reagan.? [Pacific Palisades, California], January 4 [1978]. With original envelope, slit open at top, addressed by Reagan to ?Mrs. Peter MacArthur / Lake Worth Towers / Apt. 507 / Lake Worth Fla. / 33460,? verso imprinted ?1669 San Onofre Drive / Pacific Palisades, California,? the Reagans? home from 1957-1981. Postmarked Los Angeles, January 5, 1978. Fine condition. Mrs. Peter MacArthur was Lydia Hupfer ?Hup? McArthur (1893-1995), widow of the man who had given Reagan his first job after college. Peter MacArthur was the program director at radio station WOC in Davenport, Iowa, which shared its frequency with WHO Des Moines. In 1932, MacArthur gave 21-year-old recent Eureka College grad Ronald ?Dutch? Reagan a sports announcer?s job at WOC. In 1937, sportscaster Reagan went to the Chicago Cubs spring training camp in southern California to do play-by-play for WHO Des Moines. Impressed by his confidence and good looks, an agent arranged a screen test for the 26-year-old sports announcer at Warner Bros. Reagan signed a seven-year contract and moved to California. But he never forgot Pete and Hup MacArthur whom he affectionately called ?Ma? and ?Pa? (?Maw & Paw,? ?Mom & Pop?). He sent Christmas cards and letters to them on a regular basis from 1938 until 1948 when Pete died, continuing to correspond with Hup until she died in 1995 at 101. In full, ?Dear Hup. Well the holidays are over but life gets busier. You asked what we were doing and I think most of my time is spent on airplanes. I?m out on the banquet circuit averaging about 6 to 8 speeches a month. In between banquets I?m doing a 5 day a week commentary on 300 stations & a twice a week newspaper column. It really isn?t too awful though. We have a beautiful ranch up the coast [in Santa Barbara] & manage to get their [sic] fairly often ?" some times for just an overnight or two ?" now & then for several days. We ride horses, do chores and forget about banquets. I was filled with memories a couple of months ago. The circuit took me to Iowa but not Des Moines. For a few days my name was again ?Dutch?. Nancy sends her best & we both hope you have a happy year ahead. Love Dutch.? On November 13, 1979, at the New York Hilton in New York City, Ronald Reagan announced his candidacy for President. He immediately mentioned how, as a young man, he tried to get a start in Iowa and his job as a sportscaster. He began, ?I am here tonight to announce my intention to seek the Republican nomination for President of the United States. I'm sure that each of us has seen our country from a number of viewpoints depending on where we've lived and what we've done. For me it has been as a boy growing up in several small towns in Illinois. As a young man in Iowa trying to get a start in the years of the Great Depression and later in California for most of my adult life. I've seen America from the stadium press box as a sportscaster, as an actor, officer of my labor union, soldier, officeholder and as both a Democrat and Republican ...?"

        [Screenplay]: The Victim's Tuxedo: Screenplay based on the short story The Corpse Next Door by Cornell Woolrich

      New York: Silver Screen Productions. 1978. Screenplay. Quarto. 77 pages, one page laid in. Bradbound in orange Studio Duplicating Service wrapper. A couple of ink changes in the text, wrappers a little soiled, a very good copy. Laid in is one page photocopied from the screenplay with an ink change, and a note to call a New York literary agent on the verso. A "neo-noir" treatment of the Woolrich story, the film was eventually made in 1980 as Union City, directed by Reichert (a.k.a. Marcus Reichert), as a vehicle for singer Debbie Harry, of the rock group Blondie. An interesting film that didn't achieve the desired effect of catapulting Harry to film stardom, though she continues to appear in films from time to time. .

        Whistle [Signed]

      New York: Delacorte Press, 1978. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/near fine. A Very Good copy of the first trade edition (an unsigned Franklin Library edition also was published), first printing (spine head partially pushed, tiny corner wear, topstain mildly faded, some foxing to the closed page block's edges), in a Near Fine to Fine dust jacket (some mild fading), SIGNED BY WILLIE MORRIS on the half-title; the third installment of James Jones' War Trilogy ["From Here to Eternity"; "The Thin Red Line"; "Whistle"] of which he wrote "It will say just about everything I have ever had to say, or will ever have to say, on the human condition of war and what it means to us, as against what we claim it means to us." Knowing that he was dying of congestive heart failure and unable to complete "Whistle", Jones discussed the novel with his friend Willie Morris and left copious notes so that he, Morris, could complete the novel after Jones' death. Jones died in 1977, Willie Morris completed the novel for his friend, and the work was published in 1978, telling the story of four wounded South Pacific soldiers brought back to America on a hospital ship and then taken to a Military Hospital in Tennessee where much of the story takes place. In our experience, copies signed by Morris are not at all common. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY WILLIE MORRIS. SCARCE.

        Dorchester Days (Signed First Edition with Ephemera)

      Wallaston, Massachusetts: Many Voices Press, 1978. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Soft cover. Fine. This is a signed first edition, first printing of Eugene Richard\'s seminal photobook Dorchester Days published by Many Voices Press, Wollaston MA, in 1978. This now-classic title chronicles life in Richards\' hometown of Dorchester, Massachusetts. Although all the photographs are taken within a few streets of each other, the book represents a snapshot of small town America in the 1970s, and as such has a far more wide-reaching resonance. Racial tension, violence, poverty and crime: it is a powerful portrayal of a town and a nation in a state of transition and decline. The consummate reportage photographer, this work formed the basis for Richards acceptance into the Magnum agency. Containing 75 striking duotone photographs, the book measures approximately 12 by 9 inches and is bound in photographically illustrated still wrappers. The book and the wrappers are in FINE- condition with just the slightest touch of wear to the wrapper edges. The book is inscribed, signed, and dated by Eugene Richards on the inside cover. Included with the book are a newspaper clipping that contains the book review from the Boston Globe on June 9, 1978 as well as a 4 page review from the June, 1979 edition of Modern Photography magazine. The newspaper and magazine reviews were inside the front cover and have left a yellow shadow on the inside cover where the book has been signed. The ephemera has been removed and inserted into an archival sleeve that will be shipped with the book. Cited in both The Photobook: A History, by Parr and Badger, and The Open Book by Andrew Roth.

        LISTENING WOMAN.

      New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, [1978]. - First edition. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "For Ann Iverson who is one of the above (arrow drawn up to the words "Listening Woman)," Tony Hillerman." Fine in fine, price-clipped dust jacket. An old man and a teenage girl are found brutally murdered. The blind Navajo Listening Woman speaks of ghosts and of witches, but Lieutenant Leaphorn of the Navajo Tribal Police knows his people as well as he knows cold-blooded killers. His investigation carries him from a dead man's secret to a kidnap scheme, to a conspiracy that stretches back more than one hundred years. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
