Description:
Munich: Kurt Wolff Verlag, 1926. First Edition. Kafka's third and final novel, which stands nearly a century after publication among the great works of dystopian literature. "In this book the protagonist K. arrives in a village to which he has apparently been summoned to perform work as a land surveyor for the officials of the mysterious Castle which physically looms over and politically controls this village. But K. finds that he has a great deal of difficulty communicating with the Castle, which denies that he has been called. Indeed, K. finds himself in the grip of powerful, mysterious, and bewildering forces that thwart his every effort, thus placing him very much in the position of many of the protagonists of dystopian fictions" (Booker, Dystopian Literature: A Theory and Research Guide, p.183). This copy bears an exceedingly uncommon contemporary presentation inscription from Kurt Wolff (1887-1963), Kafka's primary German-language publisher, and the first to promote and publish the author's… Read More

Description:
Ithaca, NY: Cornell University, 1983. A particularly effusive letter from Kennedy, expressing both great admiration for Salter's work, as well as gratitude for a generous letter in response to reading Billy Phelan's Greatest Game. "That was one of the best letters I've ever gotten in my life -- your response to reading Billy Phelan. It is a pleasure compounded when I think of it coming from the man who wrote A Sport And A Pastime. I remember reading that book not long after it came out and wondering if I would ever publish a book and if I did would people admire it as much as I was admiring this one. So innumerable thanks for your own book and for the good will toward mine and me." He goes on to outline his summer plans, and his hopes for getting together, concluding with "may all the literary gods and goddesses smile on your next book." Typed letter on Cornell University stationary (measuring 6" x 9"); 31 lines (242 words), and signed "Very best, Bill" toward lower margin. Two old folds… Read More

Description:
New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1950. First Edition. The author's first novel, written between 1947-48 in Queens where he lived with his mother and father. The present copies belonged to poet Jackson Mac Low. Laid into the advance copy is a TLS from the publishers addressed to "Miss Maclow" (the painter Iris Lezak, who Mac Low would later marry), dated two months prior to publication with contents somewhat prophetic in nature: "Dear Miss Maclow: Here is your preview of THE TOWN AND THE CITY, which we shall publish on March 2. This is a big, new novel by John Kerouac--a name you have never before heard--one of the most exciting new talents to come to American readers since Thomas Wolfe." A superb, early letter, presumably sent to Mac Low for a favorable review, and a wonderful association between two of the 20th century's prominent poets. Provenance: Through the trade, from the estate of Jackson Mac Low. Charters A1a. First Printing, one of 10,500 copies. Octavo; red cloth, with titling and… Read More
