        Son of the Morning Star

      San Francisco: North Point Press. 1984. Bound galley sheets of Connell's bestselling and controversial reconstruction of Custer's personality and his actions prior to and during his final battle. 6-1/4" x 13-3/4", printed on rectos only, bound in plain cream wrappers. Signed by the author. Heavily edited in at least three hands, with readers' comments and questions in two different colors and copy-editor's marks in red pencil; near fine. The readers' comments often seek to clarify the writing but at times challenge it, pointing out instances in which the author has taken liberties or made judgments that are not supported by his text. In other cases, phrases are replaced or rewritten in the margins. In all, hundreds of queries, corrections and changes throughout the book. This title is notable on several counts: it was a breakthrough book for both its author and publisher -- the first time either had reached the bestseller lists. And it provoked an outcry from historians and Custer scholars, who took issue with a number of Connell's interpretations but also seem to have resented the incursion onto their "turf" by a literary type with no previous experience in the field. By most accounts, Connell's research was quite thorough, and his interpretations were within the range of historical debate on ambiguous points. The editors' notes and challenges seem to be aimed at making the book more solid and unassailable, as though they anticipated the outcry it might incite. In most cases, it seems, the author's interpretations have since become the accepted versions of events. A rare look at a major book as a work-in-progress, a book that helped cement the author's reputation and also helped a young literary publishing company achieve a level of credibility and commercial success it had previously lacked. . First Edition. Softcover.

A whimsical ABC manuscript, drawing on the fertile soil of gardening for its inspiration. The book is lettered and illustrated by Melissa Sweet, the work done in vibrant colors entirely by hand. Included are such plants as fava beans and vetch, while some letters represent the work of gardening, hoeing, and “under the old oak tree.” Bound by Arno Werner in full maroon morocco, with a gilt-stamped alphabet on the front cover, duplicated in blind on the rear. As charming and fresh as its subject. Very fine in a matching morocco and linen dropback box. A.e.g. (See photograph in Bromer/Edison, p. 37; Bradbury, p. 38). (2 1/2 by 1 7/8; 63x48mm).

I just read a screen play with which, howver [sic] the producers are not satisfied...I have read none of Gibson's work except Neuromancer. As for the Microcosom book, I will find the writer and title. There was a summary of his theory in the New York Times Magasine [sic] some time back...He (his name escapes me) calls his theoty [sic] GAIA, who is the Greek Earth Goddess. Gaia is a regulatory influence that keeps the whole planet on the road...I am still looking for the Wiklein book..Sure, I will send along a copy of The Adding Machine...had to work round the clcok [sic] finishing my latest novel The Western Lands to get the advance..I see planet earth as a penal colony. the [sic] human body is an escape proof prison...one in million can conceive of of[sic] escape. Danger is a rare commodity these days. I have received threatening phone calls. Gives me an excuse to carry a gun which is fun. Gets the adrenilin [sic] going...'men need play and danger. civilization gives them workadn [sic] asfty [sic]///Nietche...The frontier is gone...I recommend Power on Earth Michele Sindona's Explosive story ghosted by Nick Tosches...Fascinating inside info on exactly how dirty money is laundered..(Dirty money is mostly drug money...Billions...." In his own hand he adds, "trillions." He signs, "William Burroughs," and writes in his hand, "An old char lady said to me once in London, 'Mr. Burroughs, I think we're all in Hell."
