Thus, we buy and sell Steinbeck primary first editions in dust jackets, signed/limited editions, his appearances in anthologies, his periodical appearances, books and periodicals about Steinbeck, film and theatre memorabilia, bibliographies, and miscellaneous items.

We also specialize in these same categories for these authors -- Jack London, Wallace Stegner, and Stephen King. Other specialties include Western Americana, books on California and the West, Photography books, books on Japan, China, and the Orient, and Armed Services Editions. The latter are vintage paperbacks issued to American GIs from 1943 to 1947. They are comprised of mysteries, Westerns, science fiction and fantasy, mainstream fiction, historical novels, science, poetry, adventure stories, and more.

Within our field of modern first editions, we also sell related film memorabilia Thus, we sell film posters, lobby card sets, pressbooks, stills, scripts, etc. for films made from the works of authors we carry such as John Steinbeck, Jack London, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, Raymond Chandler, Zane Grey, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Stephen King, Edward Abbey, Anne Rice, and many others.

[Modern Literature] Rascoe, Burton. Typed Letters (Unsigned). NY, Burton Rascoe, 1935, first edition. These letters concern a dust-up between Rascoe, journalist, editor, and literary critics whose best-known book was Titans of Literature, and Norman Collins, British writer, author of Penang Appointment and (later) one of the major forces behind the establishment of Independent Television in the UK, the first in this small archive is a carbon copy of a letter from Rascoe to Collins, dated April 23, 1935, he writes in part, "After I had met you this morning I learned that/you are the Collins associated with Gollancz; and I learned also/that you 'speak for Gollancz'./If 'speaks for Gollancz' means what I take it to/mean, a matter must be cleared up before I meet you again socially./If you wrote or dictated or were in any way responsible/for the wording of the gratuitously insulting cablegram to Putnam's/rejecting "Titans of Literature' both your manners and your brains/are offensive to me, so I cannot meet you socially. And, happily, my contract with Doubleday, Doran does not require that I meet you/in a business way./If Mr. Gollancz worded the telegram and you were in/no way responsible for it, that clears relations between you and me/and makes them, at least tentatively, amicable. But it holds good, as stated above (and you may tell him so) in regard to any relations/between Mr. Gollancz and me," he goes on to say that this is a personal matter and won't influence any business between the two publishing houses, Collins then composes a typed letter signed to Nelson Doubleday, dated a day later, "I woke up on a/spring morning to find the enclosed letter from Mr. Burton/Rascoe lying on my door mat. As I haven't the least idea/what it is all about I replied to him as shown in the attached/carbon (not part of this archive). In the ordinary way I would not have dreamed of/worrying you over such an incredibly trivial matter," he goes on to assure Doubleday that the matter won't affect his feelings for the publishing house, he adds a hand-written advisement, "I didn't want to go/making mountains out of mole hills by writing separately to him (Harry E. Maule, author and editor), signed in full by Collins, but Rascoe wasn't through yet, he writes to Doubleday himself April 25 in a typed letter signed in type, "That English punk with his own special band of/unintelligible Oxford accent tells me he has sent you a copy/of a personal letter of mine, together with a copy of his reply./It is necessary, then, to bother you you a copy of my riposte to/him." Rascoe's riposte is indeed rather snarky, although he does clear up the matter of Collins's possible involvement in the offensive (to Rascoe) cable, "One matter is cleared in Mr. Burton Rascoe's mind, i.e., Mr./Norman Collins did not, or says he does not, have anything to do with the/wording of the cablegram which Mr. Burton Rascoe found bad mannered and offensive," but he wasn't yet ready to be best friends forever with Collins, "something also told Mr. Rascoe/that the author of 'Penang Appointment' would be just the sort of person/who would be petty enough to send a copy of a letter having/to do with an entirely personal matter to the employer of a person who/had asked Mr. Collins a personal question," a carbon copy of the last letter is also included. Very good. JD31417
