Item Description: The Olympia Press; The Traveller's Companion Series, Paris, 1958. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Fair. First Edition; First Issue. True First issue, with "Printed October 1958" at the bottom of the endpaper, and with the bottom of the back cover having the price of "Francs 1.200" without the price being covered or inked out. Faults: The center of the front cover has a large (about 1-1/2 inches round) black, magic markered price of 99 c (cents) in a circle. I tried to gently erase it, but erasing it with an ink eraser whitens the green paper cover. The books pages, which are in signatures, need to be reglued into the covers. There is some light staining to the blank frontpaper. The covers are else very clean and crisp, with good, unworn edges. The corners at the spine ends are white, from a small loss of green paper. 189 very clean and crisp pages. The author's name is given as Maxwell Kenton, with no mention of Terry Southern. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 15633

Item Description: The Olympia Press, Paris, 1958. Soft cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Paris: The Olympia Press, copyrighted 1959, but actually printed (and so stated) in October, 1958, hence publication date is1958. See scans in that regard. First edition of the "Lollipop" re-issue of "Candy" in response to censor confiscation and burning under that original title. 12mo, green wrappers, 189 pp. See scans for copyright/printing points as noted above; price "Francs 1.200" has been above-stamped with the New Price NF 15" (see scan). Dedication here is "To Master Boon and Master Badj" (see scan), an alteration from the "Candy" dedication, which was "To Mister Hadj and Mister Zoon". Very Good; tape at spine bottom, minor soiling on back cover, very small scale peripheral wear, light dustiness to page edges. See scans. The story of a naive and gorgeous young blond girl - who quickly finds out in exactly what way we men are all, instantly and always, the same - borrows its plot structure from Voltaire's Candide and uses that strangely juxtaposed vehicle to shine a light on all the vagaries of modern western life which beg to be lampooned. Considered by many, then and now, to be a classic of "black (dark) humor". In 2006, Playboy Magazine included Candy on its list of the "25 Sexiest Novels Ever Written". A nice, and rare, copy of one early publishing step en route to the coming-out of this timeless bit of erotic fiction. Please see scans. L50n. Bookseller Inventory # 001326

Item Description: Paris, The Olympia Press, (1958). Original printed green wrappers. Green border on title-page. Spine a bit worn, with minor loss of upper layer of paper to hinges and capitals. Light wear to extremities. Lower corner of front wrapper slightly bent. Internally nice and clean. The scarce first edition, first issue (Traveler's Companion Series, number 64, printed October 1958, with the Francs 1.200 to back wrapper, not overstamped. - N.B. the 1.200 has been crossed out by hand, with a pen, but it is NOT stamped over) of Southern and Hoffenberg's greatly scandalous novel, which was confiscated by the Brigade Mondaine (i.e. "La Brigade de répression du proxénétisme" (BRP)) and officially banned in France. "Candy" not only caused an inevitable furor for its vulgar take on contemporary culture, but brought about landmark changes in how the First Amendment applied to erotic literature. The work, which constitutes the unison of three greatly provocative and time-changing minds (Southern, Hoffenberg, and Girodias), quickly gained classic status and is now one of the most famous "Beat"-novels. It was famously made into an all-star film (starring Marlon Brando, Richard Burton, James Coburn, Charles Aznavour, John Huston, Ringo Starr, Walter Matthau, John Astin, and Ewa Aulin) by Christian Marquand in 1968, and in 2006 Playboy Magazine listed it among the "25 Sexiest Novels Ever Written", describing the story as a "young heroine's picaresque travels, a kind of sexual pinball machine that lights up academia, gardeners, the medical profession, mystics and bohemians."The work was published pseudonymously by Maurice Girodias, owner of the scandalous "Olympia Press", in October of 1958. Almost immediately noticed by the BRP, who seized copies of it in the Paris bookshops, "Candy" was officially banned in France in May of 1959 (under a statute called the "1939 Decree", an amendment to the law of 1881, which gave the French government more power to ban offensive publications in foreign languages).In December of 1958, Maurice Girodias changed the title of "Candy" and reissued it as "Lollipop" in order to fool sensors and sell the remaining copies of the work. This supposedly work quite well and many copies of the book survived thus, leaving the first edition with the original title quite a scarcity, both in the first (not-overstamped) issue and the second issue. Later on, "Candy" was published in North America, by Putnam, under the authors' own names, those being Terry Southern and Mason Hoffenberg. In an interview, Terry Southern explains the origin of the pseudonym as thus: "Yeah. And the name of the author was Maxwell Kenton. A name I first used with David Burnett, of all people. He was the son of Martha Foley and Whit Burnett of The Best American Short Stories fame. We were collaborating on some short detective stuff, and even sold a couple to Argosy Magazine, and we used the pseudonym 'Maxwell Kenton'. So when Mason at one point had an attack of conscience and said, "Man, I've decided I don't want my mother to know about this book," we took the name Maxwell Kenton so his mother would be spared anguish at her Mah-Jong parties." (Smoke Signals).Terry Southern, though mostly famous for his bestseller "Candy", which greatly influenced popular culture of the 1960'ies, was known for a lot of things, including writing much of the film dialogue of the landmark films "Dr. Strangelove" and "Easy Rider". In his "The Candy Men. The Rollicking Life and Times of the Notorious Novel "Candy", Nile Southern tells the story of the book, the men behind it, and the furor that it caused: "When I was in grade school in 1967, one of my six-year-old classmates, Daisy Friedman (now a writer), turned to me and said, "Your father is a dirty old man!" I asked how she knew that, and she said, "He wrote a book called "Candy" - and it's a dirty, dirty book!" Again, I asked how she knew all this, and she said, "Because my parents told me - they have it on their bookshelf.". Bookseller Inventory # 46276
