Published by Simon and Schuster Seller Rating:. About this Item: Simon and Schuster, Soft cover. Condition: Good. Folio measuring 12 x 9 inches , ff with designs chiefly on one side only leaves often glued back-to-back, though many now separated, glue residue bleeding through the outer margins of most leaves ; disbound within pink paper over black paper wrappers with manuscript lettering on the front cover: Uncle Shelby s ABZ book by Shel the Sheller , and by Uncle Shelby on the rear wrapper spine defective, chipped edges, light spotting.
It is a clever send-up of the dull Dick and Jane type readers. This is Silverstein s first real book, preceded by two collections of cartoons: Take Ten , and Here s My Plan , as well as John Sack s Report from Practically Nowhere with comic vignettes by Silverstein. Our manuscript is based on these Playboy designs, but there are many significant differences: the pictures have been redrawn and the original color is now gone, the format is considerably expanded from 36 panels on four pages, to 76 pages adding several new letter images and stretching many of the pictures over two pages and now with 25 special [i.
In addition, a few letters are now illustrated with different designs and texts. Two of the major changes in illustrations support the idea that the published book would now be marketed for children: J is for Junkie has become J is for Joke and U is for Uncle Charlie is now U is for Uncle Shelby Uncle Charlie had been mother s secret boyfriend.
We believe that our manuscript represents Silverstein s first draft of the expanded book version of Uncle Shelby s ABZ, which he then redrew for final reproduction. The illustrations in the published book follow our manuscript quite closely with only a small number of alterations.

The calligraphic text in the book is clearly rewritten, essentially with an eye toward clarity. Our manuscript contains every picture and text in the published book, except for the pictorial wrappers. It is very rare that one is able to acquire an early manuscript of such high quality by a major children s book figure such as Shel Silverstein.

WARMLY inscribed in itself very unusual by the newly-minted World Champion to William Lombardy, Bobby Fischer's "second" at Reyjavik and the man widely credited with convincing an overwrought Fischer to move forward and play the match. As with most of Fischer's relationships, his friendship with Lombardy was complicated and experienced many highs and lows.
But the fact remains that Lombardy played a major role as coach and mentor in Fischer's development as a world-class player and provided much-needed stability during Bobby's early years. Fully aware of Fischer's tight-fisted ways, Lombardy was understandably looking for compensation for the time and toil he had invested in the Fischer-Spassky match and he set his sights on this historic copy of "My 60 Memorable Games".
By making sure that he could secure Bobby's very first signature as World Champion --and in an expressive, personalized inscription no less-- he understood that he would own a piece of chess immortality, a physcial talisman for the ages. To further mark the significance of the signing, Lombardy verified in his own hand that this indeed was Fischer's first signature as World Champion and he even had Saemi Palsson Fischer's bodyguard and the Chief of the Reyjavik Police Department sign this copy as well as a witness to history.
On top of the remarkable history attached to it, this copy is also a very solid example of the stated 1st printing.

A now classic book, illustrated in color. It was partly an experiment in using interactive elements in a book, which was unusual at the time. This is the very rare first issue of this iconic title, with a ball that was designed to squeak when the child pressed it. Because it malfunctioned most of the time, it was replaced with a box of real buttons.
The mirror in the first issue was also later replaced with scented flowers. This is one of the rarest of all modern picture books, especially in the first issue with the original ball and mirror pages and in the original box. Actual mirror not present. See Bader p.

To that end Groucho wrote entire new chapters to be added, new sections to replace parts of the old edition, and new inserts to earlier sections. The new edition never came to fruition, and present here are the 43 pages of original manuscript material with occasional hand-corrections by Groucho which he wrote and when added to the text of the earlier published edition would constitute the new book.
The chapters and new sequences have instructions from Groucho where they are to be inserted in the earlier published text. Accompanying is a first edition in dust jacket of the Many Happy Returns. Enclosed together in a handsome morocco and cloth clamshell box. Seller Inventory J.

Boldly signed by Joseph Heller on the title page. Additionally signed by author Kurt Vonnegut on the front free endpaper, who has added a self-caricature. Like Catch, by Vonnegut's friend, Joseph Heller, Slaughterhouse-Five was a World War II novel embraced by opponents of the Vietnam War, linking a so-called "good war" to the unpopular conflict of the s and '70s.
In a few verses, Vonnegut expresses his admiration for the late Heller and his friend's philosophy about the meaning of life. The two agree that gaining knowledge has been more substantive than gaining wealth throughout both of their lives. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Jacket design by Paul Bacon. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A unique example. In Heller's World War II, a supplies manager has more power than a general, and anyone seeking a discharge on the grounds of insanity is declared sane enough to keep on fighting.
