Spine ends lightly frayed, corners rubbed, spine lettering dulled; still good or better. INSCRIBED at head of title page to Kipling’s good friend Howell Gwynne, "H.A.G. from RK Nov. 1903" and SIGNED BY KIPLING beneath his printed name. Together with AN ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH BY H. MACKERN FOR SCRIBNER’S MAGAZINE OF "THE EDITORS IN THEIR OFFICE" -- namely the staff of "The Friend" (a short-lived wartime paper): Kipling, Gwynne, Julian Ralph, and Percival Landon, with all four men on and around a desk in Bloemfontein shortly after the British occupation during the Boer War. The photograph is mounted on a card SIGNED ON FRONT BY EACH of the four and with "Bloemfontein March 26th 1900" written beneath, apparently in Kipling’s own hand, and INSCRIBED ON VERSO BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER, "[illegible recipient] fr. H MacKern Scribner’s Bloemfountein March/29/00." Also with an AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED by Kipling to Gwynne dated simply "Tuesday" inviting him to his home, "I'm sorry about the [face?] and the [abscess?] It's an ignominious sequel to [dewetting?] -- and so very like life / suppose you come over here with a bag from Saturday to Monday / You will leave the bag at Rosebank station and our boy will pick it up. / You will not bring dress kit / You will come at any hour on Sat that suits you best you will name the hour whether before or after lunch. / There will be no amusements of any kind. / You can go to bed when you come if you like. You can have breakfast in bed or [illegible] & play with the kids & the lion at your will. A good bed isn't a bad place to lie down. / Ever Sincerely / Rudyard Kipling." ADDITIONALLY WITH THE POEM appearing on page 65, "General Joubert," transcribed at top and bottom of the page in what appears to be Kipling’s hand. (There is no apparent difference between the printed and transcribed versions.) Howell Arthur Gwynne, British author and newspaper editor, was a life-long friend of Kipling's and pallbearer at his 1936 burial at Westminster Abbey. Photograph and signatures beneath it fading; offset to autograph letter, which is considerably darkened on front edges.

PLAIN TALES FROM THE HILLS. Rudyard Kipling. PLAIN TALES FROM THE HILLS.
London: Macmillan and Co. 1893. Later printing of the UK edition (the first was in 1890) from a Macmillan Uniform Edition of his works sent by Kipling to Captain (later Rear-Admiral) Robley Dunglison Evans (1846-1912). PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED on title page above the title to Evans, "To the Captain of the 'Indiana' from the author / June 96:" and SIGNED "Rudyard Kipling" above his scored-through printed name. According to Evans' 1901 autobiography, A SAILOR'S LOG, (two copies of which are included), "While refitting in New York, Mr. Rudyard Kipling breakfasted on board with me . . . . Some weeks afterward he was good enough to send me a set of his books. On the title-page of PLAIN TALES FROM THE HILLS, facing a beautiful picture of Sergeant [sic] Mulvaney, done by my dear friend R. F. Zogbaum, he had written the following graceful lines. . . ." The graceful lines he refers to are those of an UNTITLED HOLOGRAPHIC POEM Kipling transcribed and signed on the page opposite the title page. The poem herein is generally unknown as it was never titled or collected by Kipling [Richards, note to E1-65]. (It appeared in Evans' own book; in one other, with a few minor transcription mistakes; and also a few times in journals--all around the turn of the last century.) The "beautiful picture" Evans refers to is of the character "Private Mulvaney," who makes his first appearance herein. Zogbaum's 4 x 6" gouache painting of Mulvaney is INSCRIBED BY ZOGBAUM, "To Capt R.D. Evans USN / R F Zogbaum / June '96" and pasted to the copyright page with, presumably in Zogbaum's hand, "'Tis the trut' I'm tellin' you" written beneath. KIPLING'S POEM, in four quatrains, begins with "Zogbaum draws with a pencil,/ And I do things with a pen;/ And you sit up in a conning tower/ Bossing eight hundred men." And ends with "'To him that hath shall be given,'/ And that's why these books are sent/ To the man who has lived more stories/ Than Zogbaum or I could invent!" Small octavo, blue-cloth boards stamped in gilt and black on front and in gilt on spine. Evans' bookplate on pastedown. Expertly recased with original spine laid down, fine thus. Housed in lambs-wool lined, black cloth-covered clamshell case lettered in gilt on spine. PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED, SIGNED AND WITH HOLOGRAPH POEM SIGNED BY KIPLING REFERRING TO HIMSELF, THE RECIPIENT AND R.F. ZOGBAUM, WHOSE ORIGINAL, INSCRIBED GOUACHE PAINTING OF KIPLING CHARACTER PRIVATE MULVANEY IS AFFIXED TO THE COPYRIGHT PAGE.

AN AMERICAN DREAM. Norman Mailer. AN AMERICAN DREAM.
New York: The Dial Press, 1965. First edition. From the collection of Adeline Lubell-Naiman. INSCRIBED, "To Adeline - In return for a long letter / Norman / Feb 1965." Spine unevenly faded, otherwise about very good in worn but still presentable dust jacket. Adeline Lubell-Naiman was the editor instrumental in the eventual publication of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD. In 1946, while an editor at Little, Brown, Lubell-Naiman convinced Mailer to submit the first 200 pages of THE NAKED AND THE DEAD, which she talked up to her publisher. Unfortunately, she was also the one to suggest historian and critic Bernard DeVoto read the manuscript--he recommended not publishing. But Mailer submitted it to Rinehart, who published the book in 1948. Over the years, Lubell-Naiman remained close friends with Mailer and his wives. In the summer of 1968 she even played the role of "Adeline McCarthy," a president of a women's college in Mailer's film "Maidstone" (Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center website).
