Dickey, James
JAMES DICKEY. An informative typed letter signed, on the American writer and poet's personal letterhead, Columbia, South Carolina, July 1, 1980. The author of Deliverance writes to the Editor of The Black Sparrow Press, "I'd like belatedly to thank you for sending along the several books from your Press which I received just before I left for Seattle and some surgery…I arranged to have a look at some of the books from your list. Believe me, I am much impressed…though I don't care much for Bukowski, his energy at least is heartening, and I am glad to have so much Paul Blackburn I hadn't already see…I liked him very much." "I am happy to see the announcement of the Olson-Creeley letters…I would be much interested in knowing what they have to say to each other…" "My very best wishes for your whole enterprise." 1 page, 4to.

DOYLE, ARTHUR CONAN
ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE An autograph letter signed A. Conan Doyle on a 4 ¼ x 3 ½ postal card stamped and marked January 11, 1920. The creator of the Sherlock Holmes series writes to H.S. Hodges of the Western Chronicle on his passion, spiritualism. "The article seems to be the usual ignorant abuse. What is this gentleman's opinion worth compared to that of Lodge, Crookes, Lambroso & Flammarion, to mention four only out of an army of expert investigators. [And] what is the use of challenging me to show [things] which I have already written two books. 'The New Revelation' and the 'Vital Message' to show. The mere use of the word 'spooks' for the spirits of our beloved dead is [offen]sive and odious." Some abrasions in the text indicated by brackets [ ]. [ref:6504]

FAY, BERNARD
BERNARD FAY A typed letter, in French, signed, Paris, May 10, 1938, by the French writer and Nazi collaborator in the Vichy Regime. He was a good friend to Gertrude Stein and translated part of her The Making of Americans into French. For him Stein translated some of the Vichy leader Marshal Petain's speeches and it was probably through Fay's influence that the two Jewish American expatriates, Stein and Toklas, were protected from harassment during the war. Here to a lady, "Thank you for your note last night, but all of this is quid pro quo, because it's already several days since I wrote to you at the American Express…returning from Italy,,,I must take care of several articles, revise them…So the only day I could possibly go on a road trip with you is Sunday…" "But if you want to leave for Italy before that, don't wait and rest assured that I understand…I can give you some very good tips on what route to take and what things to see between here and Rome." 1 page, 4to.
