[Manuscript]: The Super-Market of Public Service [with a] Small Archive of Related Material
First. A group of six related pieces, all linked to Farrell's alter-ego and occasionally fictional character Jonathan T. Fogarty. The archive consists of a Typed Manuscript, Signed by Farrell as "Marketed by James T. Farrell, Official Biographer of Mr. Jonathan Titulescu Fogarty." Five pages typed on rectos only. Quarto sheets. The original title and date (Mar 4/55) have been heavily scored through, and Farrell has written in blue ink the new title, as well as a couple of small corrections in the text. A satirical essay, written as a conversation between Fogarty and a bartender, the subject being Eloquent Dempsey, an Irish politician. The conclusion -- a good politician is a super-market of public service. Also with a manuscript note about Fogarty followed by an "Official Announcement" by Fogarty, a TLS from the President of Vanguard Press regarding Farrell/Fogarty, two TLS from Farrell as Fogarty. Further details available upon request. A curious and interesting group, showing Farrell identifying himself in his later life with Fogarty, as he had earlier in his career identified with Studs Lonigan and Danny O'Neill. Housed in a custom black clamshell cloth case with black morocco label stamped in gilt. Further details available upon request. .
