THE GREAT SANTINI. THE GREAT SANTINI.
Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1976. First edition. SIGNED by the author on the title page. His first novel, and in our humble opinion a great book, made into a wonderful movie with Robert Duval as Santini (not all our friends appreciated it as much as we). The book has two faint stains on front page edges, otherwise fine with the barest wear in near fine dust jacket with just a hint of the internal foxing on verso of spine that seems endemic to this title, and tiny chips and creasing to spine ends.

AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED. AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED.
[New York]: An American Place, July 3, 1943. Handwritten note, presumably written in response to a question put to Stieglitz at his gallery: "I have no favorite American author. There are some that hold me equally. Each in his own particular way"; above which Stieglitz has written "An American Place / July 3--43," then "You desire this: / Alfred Stieglitz." An American Place was Stieglitz's third and final gallery, which he ran from 1929 until his death in 1946. The note is on a thin sheet of 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper. Flattened creasing where folded and some wear wear to edges, still very good. Together with "Alfred Stieglitz and An American Place, 1929-1946," a catalog of an exhibition held at the Zabriskie Gallery, New York, May 2-June 3, 1978 with text by Doris Bry. Illustrated with photographs by Stieglitz, Ansel Adams and Paul Strand. Near fine in printed, stapled paperwraps.

DEADLY EDGE. DEADLY EDGE.
New York: Random House, (1971). First edition. Written by Westlake as "Richard Stark." SIGNED "Donald E. Westlake (RS)." An INTERESTING COPY, which appears to have been used to tease out portions of a screenplay. Several sections (approximately 20% of the book) are marked up: dialog is underlined, changed or crossed out; items that might be in a scene are either check-marked or crossed out; brief stage directions are written in the margins ("calls hotel"). According to Westlake in THE GETAWAY CAR, the movie rights were bought by Hal Landers and Bobby Roberts in 1972 and Don Peterson wrote a screenplay ("everybody hates it, probably no movie") but no movie was ever made. Spine ends and corners a little bumped and edges lightly rubbed, otherwise near fine in bright, near fine dust jacket.

THE KINGDOM OF EARTH WITH HARD CANDY. THE KINGDOM OF EARTH WITH HARD CANDY.
(New York): New Directions, (1954). First edition. One of a stated limitation of 100 copies, signed by Williams. This copy numbered "20." A scarce title with the lowest limitation of any Williams book, but reportedly even scarcer as most of the edition is believed to have been destroyed. "The Kingdom of Earth" was left out of "Hard Candy" apparently because of the overtly sexual story. Williams thus commissioned this limited edition from New Directions for private distribution. A fine copy in a bright paper-covered slipcase with skinned spots at ends and open edges.
