About this Item: New York City, NY: W. W. Norton & Company, 1993. Soft cover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 399 pages. Published in 1993. The author's second novel. One of Charles Baxter's finest achievements. Advance Reader's Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. Published in a tiny print run as a softcover original only. An austerely elegant production by W. W. Norton: Regular-sized volume format. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Unlike most Advance Reader's Editions, the production is full-sized, like a regular hardcover. Text by Charles Baxter. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Charles Baxter's "Shadow Play". A masterly achievement. "We have the satisfaction of having been immersed in a beautifully rendered and fully imagined world" (The New York Times Book Review). Charles Baxter has been heaped with praise, from being "our John Cheever" to "the ultimate writer's writer". "Shadow Play" has been called the twentysomething's "Catcher In the Rye": "What Salinger was to me at 16, Baxter is at 29. A mature examination of an adult's life in an ordinary town, written in an extraordinary fashion". "In his quiet cosmic wonderment, Baxter is the equal of John Updike and Anne Tyler at their largest and best" (John Berendt). An absolute "must-have" title for Charles Baxter collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Charles Baxter. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page.

About this Item: Pottersfield Press, Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia, Canada, 1989. Trade paperback. Condition: Good. Harwood, Lee (Cover artwork) (illustrator). Presumed first edition/first printing. 79, [1] pages. Signed by Bill Kinsella. Biographical Notes. Signed by author. From Wikipedia: "William Patrick Kinsella, OC, OBC (born May 25, 1935) is a Canadian novelist and short story writer who is well known for his novel Shoeless Joe (1982), which was adapted into the movie Field of Dreams in 1989. His work has often concerned baseball, First Nations people, and other Canadian issues.According to the Canadian Encyclopedia, W.P. Kinsella's literary output primarily consists of two cycles of work dealing with two fictive universes: those dealing with baseball and those depicting the indigenous people of Canada. Kinsella's first published book was called Dance Me Outside (1977), which was a collection of seventeen short stories about the lives of people on a First Nations reserve in his native Alberta. [4] Kinsella was criticized for writing from the point-of-view of Native people, appropriating their voice. Kinsella rejected the criticism on the grounds that a writer has the license to create anything they so chose. These stories use the ineptness of the white bureaucrats on reservations as background, and Kinsella defended them, saying, "It's the oppressed and the oppressor that I write about. The way that oppressed people survive is by making fun of the people who oppress them. That is essentially what my Indian stories are all about." In the field of baseball, Kinsella has written nearly 40 short stories and three novels. Shoeless Joe (1982), his first novel, blends fantasy and magical realism to tell the story of a poor Iowa farmer who, yielding to voices in his head, builds a baseball field in his corn field that attracts the spirits of the 1919 Chicago White Sox. The Iowa Baseball Confederacy (1986), another book blending fantasy and magical realism, recounts an epic baseball game a minor league team played against the 1908 World's Champion Chicago Cubs. Box Socials (1991), an evocation of life in rural Alberta during the Great Depression and World War II, features a growing boy as its protagonist and the adventure of a hometown baseball hero who gets to bat against the great pitcher legend Bob Feller. Shoeless Joe remains Kinsella's most famous work. The book was mildly controversial in that it used a living person, the reclusive author J.D. Salinger, as one of its main characters. Kinsella, who had never met him, created a wholly imagined character (aside from his being a recluse) based on the author of The Catcher in the Rye, a book that had great meaning to him when he was a young man. To get a feel for Salinger, he re-read his body of work. "I made sure to make him a nice character so that he couldn t sue me." In an example of metafiction, he named his protagonist in Shoeless Joe "Ray Kinsella", a character from Salinger s uncollected story A Young Girl in 1941 with No Waist at All. Salinger had also used the surname shared by writer and protagonist in The Catcher in the Rye (Holden Caulfield's friend Richard Kinsella). Known for his litigiousness, Salinger contacted Kinsella's publisher via his attorneys to express outrage over having been portrayed in Shoeless Joe. Kinsella denied that Salinger, as a writer, had any real influence on his own writing, despite rumors to the contrary. (Some rumors held that Kinsella had actually met Salinger in person. ) Shoeless Joe won Kinsella the prestigious Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship and the Books in Canada First Novel Award in 1982. The book garnered good reviews, sold very well, and was made into a popular movie. Ann Knight met Kinsella ina writing class in Iowa in 1976 and they were married in 1978. This is her third book, and first one of poetry. Seller Inventory # 67116

Near fine in an excellent dust jacket with a touch of rubbing and shelfwear. A nice example. "Is there any Canadian novel as compelling and as good as at capturing youthful anxieties as J. D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye? Absolutely. . . . Leonard Cohen's first novel, The Favorite Game" (Globe & Mail). Paul Quarrington said "[t]he Favorite Game is a morally brave book, intimate and unflinching. . . . Leonard Cohen sustains the highest level of poetic craftsmanship throughout," and The Observer added "[h]e is a writer of terrific energy and color, a Rabelaisian comic and a visualizer of memorable scenes." The Calgary Albertan concluded that "[i]t is the kind of book that becomes a law unto itself, simply because there is nothing with which to compare it.". Seller Inventory # 25094

About this Item: American Place, New York, 2011. Condition: Fine. First Edition. FIRST (AND ONLY) EDITION, ONE OF 500 COPIES. SIGNED BY PRINCE WITH HIS INITIALS ON THE FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. The ultimate appropriationist book (or, "book sculpture"): Prince's controversial reproduction of the iconic first edition of Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye. The front of the dust jacket is identical to the true first edition of Salinger's classic, except with Prince's name replacing Salinger's. (The rear of the dust jacket is blank as in later issues of Catcher). The book names Prince as the author on the title page and lists other works by Prince opposite the title. The copyright page contains the amusing statement: "This is an artwork by Richard Prince. Any similarity to a book is coincidental and not intended by the artist. Richard Prince". The text is, of course, that of Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye. Prince initialed this copy "RP" on the front free endpaper. Because of copyright issues, Prince generally refused to sign copies - this is an extremely rare initialed copy acquired by a collector in person at a Prince event. New York: American Place, 2011. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket; custom box. FINE CONDITION. Original cloth, original dust jacket. Seller Inventory # 1918

A SMALL ARCHIVE CONSISTING OF 14 LETTERS: Dawson, Fielding (1930-2002).

About this Item: 1966-67 and 1997. [1966]. [1966]., 1966. Condition: Good. - An archive of letters, mostly typed and signed by Fielding Dawson, addressed to his friend the novelist and screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer. Included in the archive is a Collage by Dawson created from black & white newspaper clippings, titled "Her Escape From Somnambulism". Dated December 30th, 1966, the collage is annotated, inscribed to Rudy and signed on the verso. Also included is Dawson's 8 page booklet "Man Steps Into Space", Inscribed to Rudy on January 1st, 1967. A telegram to Rudy from Taos, New Mexico, opens with "Angst here too." [possibly a reference to a line in NOG: "Iíll tell you a secret, we called you Dr. Angst because of the gloom on your face."]Ten substantial, stream of consciousness letters, addressed to Rudy, are dated from February 8, 1967 to March 3, 1968. Most are typed and signed by Fielding Dawson. Most of the letters are signed "Fielding" though some are simply signed "Fee". Fielding Dawson's first book "An Emotional Memoir of Franz Kline" was published in 1967 and he makes mention of sending the carbon of his book to Philip Guston. In his February 11, 1967 letter, Dawson mentions a "ruthless session with Lefford" in which he discussed his mother & childhood. He is possibly referring to the psychologist A. Lefford who co-authored the monograph "Intersensory Development in Children" with H. Birch in 1963. In his postcript to this letter, Dawson writes "Do you know, at one time, I was the catcher in the rye?". In an annotation penned in ink at the top, he mentions that "I told Lefford there was a problem at Black Mtn". His January 24, 1968 letter has much on his "Black Mountain" book with several references to Robert Creeley and Charles Olson. In a postscript, this letter contains a reference to Rudy Wurlitzer's book "Nog": "I hope your book comes along better".In a subsequent letter, dated July 23, 1968, addressed to the psychologist Dr. Lefford, Fielding Dawson signs himself "Annihilatr" [sic] and expresses his growing anxiety resulting from being rejected by the women in his life and his inability to write in this state: "What worries me is the sense of panic I feel, the feeling of being totally rejected and abandoned way out of proportion to event." The letter was shared with Rudy but possibly not actually sent to Lefford.Three letters dated from March 13, 1997 through July 22, 1997 describe Dawson's consultations with his therapist "Nina". He's included related material with the letters and in a couple of instances shares with Rudy copies of letters he wrote to "Nina", heavily corrected in ink.A unique archive which provides much insight into the author's life and writings. The Beat-era short story author, novelist and avant-garde artist, Fielding Dawson (1930-2002) studied at Black Mountain College under Franz Kline and Charles Olson. His collages and paintings illustrated several poetry books and literary magazines. His often painfully raw stream of consciousness writings sought to draw out and evoke a sense of humanity. He was one of a group of poets whose works were identified with with the Black Mountain school. Several were to return to teach, joined there by such seminal figures as Willem de Kooning, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Buckminster Fuller, and others. A conscientious objector, he served as a cook in a military hospital when drafted in 1953. Returning to New York, he caroused with the likes of Franz Kline, Philip Guston, Robert Motherwell, and Jackson Pollock. They often were the subjects of his writings. An advocate of prison reform, he taught writing to maximum security prisoners at prisons such as Sing-Sing and Attica and read their works on the weekly radio progam "Breaking Down The Walls".The American experimental novelist & screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer (born 1937) first started writing when working on an oil tanker when he was 17 years old. A descendant of Rudolph Wurlitzer who founded the Wurlitzer piano company, Rudy subsequently worked as secretary for the author Robert Grave. Seller Inventory # 36126

About this Item: Little Brown, Boston, 1951. File folder envelope hand-written and addressed by J.D. Salinger to fellow writer and friend Eli Waldron. The file folder was used as an envelope. Shipping and return address entirely in Salinger's hand. Return address is from Salinger's Vermont address and addressed to Mr. Eli Waldron. Postmarked 1965. The folder measures 12 inches by 9.5 inches. The recipient Eli Waldron was an American writer and journalist whose primary work consisted of short stories, essays, and poetry. His writings were published in literary journals (such as The Kenyon Review, Prairie Schooner, and Story) and popular periodicals (such as Collier's, Holiday, Rolling Stone, Saturday Evening Post). From the 1950s to 1970s he contributed stories and essays to The New Yorker, and in the 1960s and 1970s. Waldron moved to Charlton Street in New York City in 1947 and became part of a literary circle that included Hollis Alpert, Josephine Herbst, S. J. Perelman, and J. D. Salinger. Following the publication in July 1951, of his review of J. D. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye, Salinger wrote his reviewer a warm note of thanks, adding: "I hope one day somebody writes with that much perception and feeling about a book of yours." With the copy of Catcher in the Rye, which was sent to Waldron. Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher In the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists. It begins, "If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them.". Seller Inventory # 54090

THE CATCHER IN THE RYE. Signed. Boston: Little Brown, 1952. A fine SIGNED copy of the March, 1952 reprint of the first edition. [The first issue was July, 1951]. 8vo., 277pp., black cloth, gilt.

An excellent example of Salinger's elusive signature - The binding is fine; the dustwrapper very good or better with the $3.00 price present & nine reviews on the back panel replacing Salinger's photo after the first few early printings at his insistence. Custom clamshell case in very fine condition. The probable High Spot in Modern American Lit collecting, "The Catcher In The Rye is undoubtedly a 20th-century classic. It struck a popular note, particularly with young readers, who strongly identified with Holden Caulfield and his yearning for lost innocence. Salinger's novel was, and continues to be, a phenomenal success" (Parker, 300). "This novel is a key-work of the nineteen-fifties in that the theme of youthful rebellion is first adumbrated in it, though the hero, Holden Caulfield, is more a gentle voice of protest, unprevailing in the noise, than a militant world-changer. The Catcher in the Rye was a symptom of a need, after a ghastly war and during a ghastly pseudo-peace, for the young to raise a voice of protest against the failures of the adult world. The young used many voices-anger, contempt, self-pity-but the quietest, that of a decent perplexed American adolescent, proved the most telling" (Anthony Burgess, 99 Novels , 53-4).
