  • First Edition of All the President's Men; Signed by Carl Bernstein, Bob Woodward, Ben Bradlee, George Bush, Henry Kissinger and Alexander Butterfield

    BERNSTEIN, Carl & Bob Woodward; Benjamin Bradlee.

    All The President’s Men.

    New York: Simon & Schuster, 1974.

    First edition of this groundbreaking work in American journalism. Octavo, original blue cloth, illustrated. Signed by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein on the title page. Additionally signed by President George H.W. Bush, editor Ben Bradlee, Henry Kissinger and Alexander Butterfield. George W. Bush wrote in 41 Portrait of My Father, regarding The Watergate Scandal, “The final straw came on August 5, 1974. The Supreme Court had ruled that the White House must turn over all the tapes to Leon Jaworski, the new Watergate special prosecutor and a friend of Dad’s from Houston. “The tapes revealed that Nixon had spoken to one of his aides about thwarting the FBI’s investigation into the Watergate break-in. That was proof that he knew about the cover-up and that he had lied to the country. The revelation shattered Dad’s trust in Nixon. “Despite his deep disappointment, my father refused to condemn Nixon publicly. “While he might have benefited in the short run, Dad saw little point in ‘piling on,’ as he put it. He voiced his opinion privately in a letter to the President on August 7. “As far as I know, he is the only party Chairman in American history who has ever written such a letter. “‘I now firmly feel that resignation is best for this country, best for this President,’ he wrote. ‘I believe this view is held by most Republican leaders across the country.’ “Writing with his characteristic sympathy, Dad continued, ‘This letter is made much more difficult because of the gratitude I will always have for you. If you do leave office, history will properly record your achievements with a lasting respect.’ The next day, President Nixon announced that he would resign.” Bookplate to the front free endpaper, near fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with light shelfwear. Jacket design by Wendell Minor. An exceptional collection of signatures, most rare and desirable with Bush and Kissinger.

  • First Edition of Watership Down; Inscribed by Richard Adams to Madeleine L'Engle

    ADAMS, Richard [Madeleine L'Engle].

    Watership Down.

    London: Rex Collings, 1972.

    First edition of Richard Adams’ timeless classic novel. Octavo, original brown cloth, folding map. Association copy, inscribed by the author on the title page to fellow bestselling children’s author Madeleine L’Engle, “Yours sincerely, For Madeleine, on a very special occasion Richard Adams.” From the library of Madeleine L’Engle. Both Adams and L’Engle were unknown in the publishing world until their singular best-selling award-winning children’s novels were finally published after numerous rejections. Both authors’ works were also published in their mid-lives after they had married and had children. At the insistence of his daughters, Adams began writing the story he had told them on a car trip in 1966 at the age of 46 and after four publishers and three writers’ agencies turned down the manuscript, Rex Collings agreed to publish the work in 1972. The book gained immediate international acclaim and went on to win the Carnegie Medal, Guardian Prize, and was adapted into several feature films and television series. L’Engle’s best-selling work A Wrinkle in Time was also initially rejected by at least 26 publishers. It was not until a close personal friend of L’Engle’s mother introduced her to John C. Farrar of Farrar, Straus and Giroux that the work was finally published in 1962. L’Engle was 44 years old at the time of publication and A Wrinkle in Time went on to win the Newbery Medal, the Sequoyah Book Award, the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, and inspired two film adaptations, both by Disney: a 2003 television film directed by John Kent Harrison; and a 2018 theatrical film directed by Ava DuVernay. Near fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with light shelf wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional association.

  • First Edition of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World; With three page Autographed Letter Signed by Huxley

    HUXLEY, Aldous.

    Brave New World.

    London: Chatto & Windus, 1932.

    First edition of Huxley’s masterpiece. Octavo, original blue cloth. With a lengthy autograph letter signed by Aldous Huxley to English philosopher L.P. Jacks, dated July 3, 1936, three pages, La Gorguette letterhead, which reads in full, “Dear Dr. Jacks, Thank you for your letter and the extremely interesting article which accompanied it. I like the idea of an international trust fund very much. Apart from the fundamental question of the willingness or otherwise of the nations to constitute such a fund, I imagine the difficulty of transferring sums of such magnitude from one country to an international authority in another. The history of reparations makes it sufficiently clear that they can’t be transferred in cash. The sums can only be paid in goods and services – except in the cause of creditor nations whose favorable balance allows them to make overseas investments and who could direct the sums ordinarily used for investment to the league. I know much too little, however, about economics to be able to criticize the scheme in detail but what I am sure of is that the idea of making the league serve among other things as a kind of international trustee, factor and insurance company is very valuable. Idealism has got to translate itself into terms of good business to make itself effective. And this would very soon reveal itself as good business. Except of course for the vested interests. These remain a very serious problem – perhaps most serious of all: The great mass of men and women who have no enormous stake in any existing institutions have only a psychological objection to change; but there is a minority whose objection is also economic – and so long as it retains presents, such change as that which you propose will be very hard to carry through. Meanwhile how depressing is the spectacle of left-wing enthusiasm for a military league? The saber rattling in the liberal press has been really deafening during these last weeks. With thanks for the article, I am your sincerely, Aldous Huxley.” Dr. Jacks served as the editor of the Hibbert Journal from its founding in 1902 until 1948. Under his editorship the Journal became one of the leading forums in England for work in philosophy and religion, and introduced the work of Alfred Loisy to British readers. In September 1915, he wrote in support of the war effort, citing the need to defeat German militarism and defend “the liberties of our race.” His article, titled The Peacefulness of Being at War in The New Republic, argued that the war had “brought to England a peace of mind such as she had not possessed for decades,” claiming that the sense of common purpose brought on by the war had overcome social fragmentation and improved English life. Jacks was interested in parapsychology and was President for the Society for Psychical Research. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing and a small chip. A very nice example.
