        An archive of correspondence from the author regarding his writing process, and regarding the publication of the 1987 collection, "The Annex and Other Stories"

      N.p., N.p. 1986 - A curated collection of 9 typed letters signed written by John D. MacDonald to various serious inquiries from readers all over the world regarding his fiction, as well as some correspondence with the Finnish publisher Eurographica (who published "The Annex and Other Stories in 1987), all dating between 1953 and 1986. Quite strong in content, the letters show a thoughtful side of a writer who was generally very quiet about his process.Among the topics addressed in the letters are: the novels with which he was the most pleased ("The End of the Night," "Slam the Big Door," "Please Write for Details," "A Key to the Suite," and "The Last One Left"), the number of his books he believes to have sold as of April 1986 (90,000,000), a philosophical discussion about appraisals of an author's enduring merit ("a delusion"), a fascinating and detailed discussion of his process for conceiving a new novel ("I have thrown away beginnings which were stronger than the one eventually used"), a detailed response to a request from a Finnish publisher about which stories to put in an anthology, and an explanation regarding the location of his archives and "professional materials."One sentence from a 1986 letter would appear to sum up the author's attitude about his craft the best: "I really like writing.were my books unsalable I would do them anyway, and then bury them in the back yard."Letters are all Near Fine, some on MacDonald's stationery, some with his typed address at the top left, all dated.

        THE ETERNAL BODY: A Collection of Fifty Nudes

      Carmel, California: Photography West Graphics, 1986. Limited, signed first edition. Very near fine in a near fine slipcase (lacking the separate original print, 2 small light spots on spine. ) Winner of the Photography Book of the Year Award, this is a retrospective collection of Bernhard's work, an erotic photography classic and a magnificently produced and very beautiful book. In her introduction, Bernhard states "In photographing the nude, it is my aim to transform the complexities of the figure into harmonies of simplified form. I have approached my work with the nude much as I create a still life, with patience and reverence. My quest through the magic of light and shadow, is to isolate, to simplify and to give emphasis to form with the greatest clarity." The 50 plates are arranged chronologically and span the years from 1934 to 1976. (list of plates at rear of book). Includes 2 essays by Margaretta K. Mitchell, one on photographing the nude, the other a brief biography of Bernhard. Ansel Adams - with whom Bernhard worked for many years - has been quoted as saying that Bernhard was "the greatest photographer of the nude." A large oblong volume bound in burgundy cloth with silver lettering in a matching cloth slipcase. Printed by Gardner/Fulmer, using the Laser Fultone Process, to the highest standards. One of only 375 numbered and SIGNED copies in this special slipcased edition (out of a total edition of 5400).
