Humorous "Official" State Document, Agnew, Spiro [signed]
4 Agnew, Spiro [signed] Humorous "Official" State Document
Maryland 1967 No Binding Fine Book 
Spiro Agnew was one of the most famous, most loved and most hated Americans of his time, and the story of his spectacular rise and fall is dramatic and exciting. His fame and notoriety blazed and burned itself out in a hot five year span from the summer of 1968 to the autumn of 1973. During those years, he was the kind of divisive figure that Sarah Palin has more recently been, though their conservative personae were completely different: he was dapper, surly and brainy where Palin is casual, cheery and outdoorsy. But like Sarah Palin he was always larger than life, and absolutely magnetic on TV. You couldn't take your eyes off him. Agnew was noted for his biting wit. The internet is replete with his quotes- -The criminal left belongs not in a dormitory, but in a penitentiary. The criminal left is not a problem to be solved by the Department of Philosophy or the Department of English, it is a problem for the Department of Justice. Black or white, the criminal left is interested in power. It is not interested in promoting the renewal and reforms that make democracy work; it is interested in promoting those collisions and conflict that tear democracy apart.- -An intellectual is a man who doesn't know how to park a bike.- -Perhaps the place to start looking for a credibility gap is not in the offices of the Government in Washington but in the studios of the networks in New York!- This "document" is in keeping with Agnew's sharp and pointed wit. State of Maryland Document with the official seal. Signed by " ....Spiro Agnew, Governor, to Arthur J. Sohmer, Greeting: Be it Known; that on behalf of the citizens of this State, in recognition of his fawning and groveling we are pleased to confer upon you this Certificate of Distinguished Sycophant. given ....this 28th day of Sept. ....... 1967..........." 14" x11" near fine condition.

August 1914, Alexander Solzhenitsyn
8 Alexander Solzhenitsyn August 1914
New York Farrar, Straus and Giroux 1972 0374106843 / 9780374106843 Hardcover Very Good Very Good Book Inscribed By Alexander Solzhenitsyn
In his monumental narrative of the outbreak of the First World War and the ill-fated Russian offensive into East Prussia, Solzhenitsyn has written what Nina Krushcheva, in The Nation, calls "a dramatically new interpretation of Russian history." The assassination of tsarist prime minister Pyotr Stolypin, a crucial event in the years leading up to the Revolution of 1917, is reconstructed from the alienating viewpoints of historical witnesses. The sole voice of reason among the advisers to Tsar Nikolai II, Stolypin died at the hands of the anarchist Mordko Bogrov, and with him perished Russia's last hope for reform.

Him With His Foot in His Mouth and Other Stories, Bellow, Saul
19 Bellow, Saul Him With His Foot in His Mouth and Other Stories
New York Harper & Row 1984 006015179X / 9780060151799 Hardcover Very Good Very Good Book Signed Saul Bellow
Family fiction and the fiction-of-ideas: these are the two competing concerns in Bellow's recent work. Here those seemingly contradictory roles-- the darkly comic memoirist, and the thorny essayist-- are on more rewarding display, occasionally even blending in a richly charming way. One story, "A Silver Dish," already much-anthologized and much-acclaimed, is the memoirist/ family side of Bellow, virtually undiluted: a 60-year-old South Chicago businessman reacts exuberantly to the death of his old father-- in a memory-montage that showcases Bellow's boisterous, visceral, ironic warmth. But, in other pieces, chunks of zesty family/friend reminiscence and personal psychology are shaded with cultural musings or implications. The brief, fragmentary "Zetland: By a Character Witness" recalls the early life of a Chicago intellectual/bohemian, rebelling against his old-fashioned Jewish family; the subtext is a gently mordant view of all intellectual idealism. In "Cousins," the narrator is a law-expert/celebrity who uses his influence to get a light sentence for his gangster-cousin Tanky; here, the inability to "extricate myself from the ties of Jewish cousinhood" leads to memories of other cousins, to anthropological puzzles, to the conflict between the "brainy" and the gutsy. And most effective of all in the weaving of earthy tale-spinning with meditation is the title story: narrator Harry, a 65-ish musicologist, who's hiding out from big legal troubles in Vancouver, is writing an apology to the long-ago victim of one of his many cruel wisecracks; he recounts the Balzac-like money/family mistakes which got him into his present mess; and, without strain or contrivance, this confession/self-analysis winds through such oddly relevant matters as Allen Ginsberg, the breeding of pit bulldogs, music vs. materialism, and Jewish assimilationism. The longest piece, "What Kind of Day Did You Have?", an affair between a youngish divorcee and a famous old art critic becomes a frame for wrestlings with Marxism, celebrity, and intellectual hucksterism. But much of this welcome gathering presents the restless Bellow voice in full cry--taut, colorful, Talmudic, and large-hearted.
