        A Confederacy of Dunces

      Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press. 1980. Signed by Walker Percy. A posthumously published novel that was the first work of fiction published by the LSU Press: and which had a very small first printing (reportedly 2500 copies), Initially the book was rejected by dozens of publishers and the author committed suicide in 1969. Years later the author's mother brought the manuscript to Walker Percy, insisting that he read it. Percy overcame his initial hesitations and championed the book, arranging for its publication and contributing an introduction. Excellent reviews and word of mouth led to its becoming a best-seller, and it won the Pulitzer Prize. One tiny foredge spot, else a fine and tight copy (the boards tend to splay on most copies) in a very near fine, first issue dust jacket with only trace wear to the corners and a hint of rubbing near the spine crown. A high spot of American fiction over the last half century. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Forced Exposure: Volumes 1-18, Complete Run

      Watertown, MA: Forced Exposure Early 1980s-1993 - First Editions. Stapled quartos. Forced Exposure was an independent music magazine founded by Jimmy Johnson and Katie "The Kleening Lady" Goldman. It was printed on cheap newsprint with plain design and filled with corrosive, humorous writing. While there were articles and reviews of various counterculture figures in literature (Charles Bukowski, William S. Burroughs, Philip K. Dick) and film (Richard Kern, Nick Zedd), the primary focus was independent, punk, and obscure music. The list of contributors and interviewees reads like a who's who of underground music from the time: Steve Albini, Mission of Burma, Sonic Youth, Lydia Lunch, etc. The last issue of the magazine, #18, was released in 1993. The first three issues are stapled newsprint zines, saddle stitched; wrap around covers were used from issue number 4 on and full color, saddle stitched, wrap around covers on superior paper stock were used from issue 6 until the end of the run with number 18 - the final 146-page issue being perfect bound, all near fine.

        Collection of material relating to Wingate's Chindits and their campaigns in Burma.

      [Various places and dates, 1940s-1980s] - Superb collection of material concerning the Chindits, includes Wingate's Report on the Operations of 77th Brigade; the original MS of the Hedley's book Jungle Fighter; a number of SEAC Chindit publications; a small trove of pieces from the collection of a serving Chindit officer, including intelligence reports, some excellent press photographs, and a remarkable original "panic flag" - the escape map, neckerchief, signal flag carried by the Chindits; the privately produced Chindits Old Comrade's Association appreciation of Wingate; together with a group of Chindit memoirs. These last are not the best copies in all cases, but most of the major books are there including Fergusson's The Wild Green Earth signed, Anthony Brett-James's copy with his pithy notes, and one of Patrick Boyle's MS note-books used in the composition of Jungle, Jungle Little Chindit. More detailed listing follows below. Overall very good. Named after the temple-guard leogryphs of Burma, the Chindits were a special forces group formed by the enigmatic and charismatic Orde Wingate, one of the greatest early exponents of unconventional warfare. In two campaigns - Operation Longcloth an exploratory expedition into Japanese-held territory by a force of just 3,000 beginning in February 1943, and Operation Thursday of March 1944, which was the second largest airborne operation of the Second World War - this mixed force of British, Burma Rifles, Hong Kong Volunteers, Gurkhas and West African troops were instrumental in eroding the Japanese grip on Burma. This collection contains some extremely uncommon contemporary material; personal effects of a serving officer; together with a significant group of the memoirs written by participants. WINGATE, O.C., Brigadier. Report on Operations of 77th Indian Infantry Brigade in Burma, February to June 1943. New Delhi: Printed by the Manager Government of India Press, 1943 Octavo. Original green cloth backed printed boards. Large folding coloured map in end-pocket, diagrams and tables to the text. Boards slightly browned, else a very good copy. Wingate's report on Operation "Longcloth", the founding operation of the "Chindits". Setting out with three objectives; to cut the railway line between Mandalya and Myitkyina; to harrass the enemy in the Shwebo district; and if possible to cross the Irrawaddy and cut the railway between Mandalay and Lashio. They were successful in the first objective and Japanese reaction to their presence indicates a degree of success in the second. However, at the railway line two columns were ambushed and incurred heavy casualties, Wingate ordered a general dispersal and retreat back to India. They had spent twelve weeks in the jungle and marched almost a thousand miles, their losses were 833 out of 3,000 men. Wingate saw the operation as a dismal failure, but whilst it lacked material results "Longcloth" recast future strategic thinking. It had been shown that the British could attack in the jungle, an alien environment for them, and take the war to the Japanese. Wingate accompanied Churchill to Quebec in August '43 for the "Quadrant" conference with the intention of persuading the Allied chiefs of the soundness of the long range penetration concept. Designated "Secret" this is copy No. 105 of only 200 copies. An extremely detailed report, written in an unusually colloquial style. There are many passages which are controversially critical of the actions of named Officers or groups, for example at p.31 "the Commander of No.2 Column was Major Emmet, a Gurkha Rifle Officer, with excellent knowledge of Gurkhali but unfit to command men.", or again at p.33 "As we reached the Station, Captain Mackenzie was crazy enough to open fire at the telegraph wires with his Tommy Gun as a feu de joie." These have been red pencilled with the intention that they be excised from later issues. This copy with the ownership inscription of George Nangle, who won the DSO for his conduct at Monte Cassino in command of 1/9 Gur

        The Oak and the Calf: Memoirs of a Literary Life

      Franklin Library, Franklin Center, PA 1980 - "In this autobiographical work, Solzhenitsyn tells of his ten-year war to outwit Russia's rulers and get his works published in his own country." [Pub. Info] "These memoirs are the author's account of his struggles with the Soviet regime through the 1960s and into the 1970s. The narrative has all the tension and verve of a good novel, and numerous critics say it rivals his novels in its literary attainment." [WSJ] Imagine a weak little calf butting his head against a huge, immovable oak tree, [naively] thinking he could knock it down. In Alexander Solzhenitsyn's memoirs. the Soviet regime was the oak, Solzhenitsyn was the calf, and the book describes their battle to the death." [WSJ] "The Nobel Prize in Literature 1970 was awarded to Alexandr Solzhenitsyn 'for the ethical force with which he has pursued the indispensable traditions of Russian literature."

      Franklin Center, Pennsylvania: The Franklin Library, 1980. Limited. Full Leather. Fine/No Jacket as Issued. An American classic in full red leather SIGNED by the first African-American author to win the National Book Award (1953), Ralph Ellison. Author's first book. A socially-significant work by an author with a large intellect and important viewpoint. A handsome dark red leather volume with gold-gilt cover designs and page edges with bound-in silk bookmark. In fine condition. Very light rippling on the top edge in the gilt that is original to the publisher, barely noticeable. Includes the 22-page "Notes from the Editors." The 50th Anniversary of the publication of INVISIBLE MAN was featured on PBS' critically-acclaimed American Masters program early in 2002 thus demonstrating the importance of this book in our American literary culture.

A beautiful copy.

        Collection of approximately 30 typed and autograph letters and postcards from Helen G. Coates, Bernstein's first piano teacher and personal assistant for most of his adult life, to Madeline Hsu (Forte), pianist and wife of musicologist Allen Forte

      "Bernstein';s legacy looms large in each area that he worked. West Side Story remains his most important work, but his mastery of the Broadway idiom is just as clear in his other shows. Mass remains a powerful piece and is finding new audiences. Bernstein';s concert music includes many enduring works, especially Chichester Psalms, and orchestral pieces based upon his popular shows also continue to be programmed. His fame as a conductor has barely diminished since his death, and many of his recordings remain critically and commercially popular. That he will also be remembered as one of America';s most important musical educators seems certain." Paul R. Laird and David Schiff in Grove online Coates was Bernstein's first piano teacher of note; he began his studies with her at the age of 14.. The letters, written ca. 1980-85, are particularly interesting for Coates's comments on the music and activities of Bernstein during the period. The correspondence also discusses the legacy of the pianist and teacher Rosina Lhevinne as well as other musical and personal matters. Included are 3 letters from Lhevinne's student and video-biographer Salome Arkatov.

A posthumously published novel that was the first work of fiction published by the LSU Press: and which had a very small first printing (reportedly 2500 copies), Initially the book was rejected by dozens of publishers and the author committed suicide in 1969. Years later the author's mother brought the manuscript to Walker Percy, insisting that he read it. Percy overcame his initial hesitations and championed the book, arranging for its publication and contributing an introduction. Excellent reviews and word of mouth led to its becoming a best-seller, and it won the Pulitzer Prize. One tiny foredge spot, else a fine and tight copy (the boards tend to splay on most copies) in a very near fine, first issue dust jacket with only trace wear to the corners and a hint of rubbing near the spine crown. A high spot of American fiction over the last half century. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Dark Forces

      NY: Viking. 1980. A collection of previously unpublished stories of suspense and horror, edited by Kirby McCauley. A landmark volume in the history of the Modern Horror genre, assembled as Stephen King was just becoming a bestselling author after five novels that would eventually be seen as classics but at the time had sold little and garnered limited serious critical attention. This anthology attempted to put the new horror writers, including King, into a context and tradition that was much broader than the genre, and more readily considered to be "literary." Thus, in addition to King and such upcoming young writers as T.E.D. Klein, Gene Wolfe and Ramsey Campbell, the collection includes such mainstream writers as Joyce Carol Oates, Davis Grubb and Isaac Bashevis Singer, and such well-established genre writers as Ray Bradbury, Theodore Sturgeon and Robert Bloch. This copy is signed or inscribed by fifteen writers, including King, Bloch, Richard Matheson, Joe Haldeman, Gahan Wilson, Campbell, Wolfe, Richard Christian Matheson, Dennis Etchison, Karl Edward Wagner, Manly Wade Wellman, Edward Bryant, Charles L. Grant, and the editor, Kirby McCauley. With the ownership signature of fellow horror writer Stanley Wiater, and with Wiater's Gahan Wilson-designed bookplate on the verso of the front flyleaf. Stephen King's contribution is "The Mist," a 130+ page novella that was nominated for a World Fantasy Award and a Locus Award. It was collected five years later in Skeleton Crew. Light ink stains throughout the first several pages of the introduction, not obscuring any text; near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light wear to the corners. A unique copy of a seminal collection that helped define the genre. First Edition. Hardcover.
