(SOUTHERN, Terry). SIMON, Noel and GEROUDET, Paul
NY, World Publishing, (1970). "The Natural History of Animals in Danger of Extinction." Fine in a near fine dust jacket and original cardboard slipcase, which is inscribed by Terry Southern to Peter Matthiessen: "Dear Pete - Spotted this tome en passant so to speak, and thought 'what the heck, that looks very much like the great Math's bag!', so I snapped one up (that's the kind of guy I am, Pete, just snapped it right up) and am sending it along in hopes you may groove on it. Some boss-pix. Best, yr. T." A fine Terry Southern letter on a cardboard slipcase of a gift, and an indication of the friendship between the two, which is not as widely known as some of Matthiessen's other literary friendships. [#032531] $1,250
1990. An autograph wedding greeting to longtime friend Nelson Lyon, crafted on a Lou Beach collaged image. Lyon was responsible for getting Southern a job on Saturday Night Live in the 1980s when Southern was hard-pressed for both money and paying work, and he directed and co-produced, with SNL music director Hal Wilner, Southern’s spoken word CD, “Give Me Your Hump.” Lyon was also famous, or infamous, for having been with John Belushi the night Belushi died of a drug overdose. Signed "Uncle Ter." 8-1/2" x 11"; glue stains on verso; else fine. [#026396] $300
NY, World Publishing, (1970). Very Good in Very Good DJ. [#709770] $20
