BALL FOUR: My Life and Hard Times Throwing the Knuckleball in the Big Leagues. Jim Bouton. BALL FOUR: My Life and Hard Times Throwing the Knuckleball in the Big Leagues.
Cleveland: World Publishing Company, (1970). First edition. One of Sports Illustrated "Top 100 Sports Books of All Time." INSCRIBED, "To Paul and Froggie - 'Smoke em inside.' Jim Bouton." Froggie was the nickname of the first wife of Paul Zimmerman, the Sports Illustrated columnist fondly known as "Dr. Z" to his many fans. With two AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED BY BOUTON laid in: the first is two pages, dated June 1968, and, among other things, mentions having to wear another player's jock strap; the second is three pages, dated August 1968, and is written from Spokane, which Bouton calls "oblivion city." According to the Sports Illustrated write-up on the book, "Though a declining knuckleballer, Bouton threw nothing but fastballs in his diary of the 1969 season. Pulling back the curtain on the seriocomic world of the big leagues, he writes honestly and hilariously about baseball's vices and virtues. At a time when the sport was still a secular religion, it was an act of heresy to portray players pounding the 'Ol' Budweiser,' 'chasin' skirts' or 'poppin' greenies.' (And that was during games.) But finally, a love story. Bouton writes, 'You spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time.' " Spine and cover edges fading, page edges a little spotted, offsets to endpaper from old newsclipping, otherwise about very good in like dust jacket showing light soiling and edge wear. FANTASTIC ASSOCIATION, ONE OF SPORTS ILLUSTRATED TOP 100 SPORTS BOOKS OF ALL TIME INSCIBED TO DR. Z HIMSELF.

THE GAY PLACE. Being Three Related Novels THE FLEA CIRCUS, ROOM ENOUGH TO CAPER, COUNTRY PLEASURES. William Brammer. THE GAY PLACE. Being Three Related Novels THE FLEA CIRCUS, ROOM ENOUGH TO CAPER, COUNTRY PLEASURES.
Boston: Houghton Mifflin and Co. 1961. First edition. The author's only book. An advance copy INSCRIBED by Brammer, "For Wm. Beckman -- Friend of famous Arthurs / Pen Pay of Genius Poets / Patron of the Pataphysician. From his boon companion Wm. (B. L.) Brammer 3/21/63 (4 a. m.)." One of the best political novels we've read. Brammer worked for LBJ and became a heavy user of drugs which eventually led to his death. Set in an unnamed state identical to Texas, each novella has a different protagonist: a member of the state legislature; the state's junior senator; and the governor's speechwriter. The governor himself, Arthur Fenstemaker, a master politician (said to have been based on Brammer's mentor Lyndon Johnson) serves as the dominant figure throughout. The book also includes characters based on Ladybird, and LBJ's brother Sam Houston Johnson. The book, which earned the author a Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship Award. has been widely acclaimed as one of the best American political novels ever written. Yellow printed wraps a bit soiled and a bit worn on edges but still very good. INSCRIBED ADVANCE COPY.

BILLY RAY'S FARM: With Engravings by Barry Moser. Larry Brown, Barry Moser. BILLY RAY'S FARM: With Engravings by Barry Moser.
Decatur, Georgia: Wisteria Press, 1997. First edition. Letter "Z" of 26 COPIES BOUND IN FULL LEATHER and housed in handmade clamshell box, each copy SIGNED BY BROWN AND MOSER and with TWO LOOSE LITHOGRAPHS SIGNED BY MOSER in glassine envelope laid in (one is the frontispiece illustration, the other appears opposite the first page of text and is of Brown).

A beautiful, fine-press production. Although Billy Ray, Brown's son, has had persistent bad luck with cattle, in this non-fiction essay featuring dead calves, misbehaving bulls, rampaging coyotes and dilapidated fences, both father and son remain optimistic: "Billy Ray's farm does not yet exist on an earthly plane," writes Brown, but "on Billy Ray's farm there will be total harmony, wooden fence rows straight as a plumb line, clean, with no weeds, no rusted barbed wire." Later collected under the same title in 2001. His first work of nonfiction since his acclaimed ON FIRE. Fine in fine box. ONE OF ONLY 26 TO INCLUDE TWO MOSER LITHOGRAPHS.
