Meir Ariel – Notebook with Handwritten Poems – An Early Long Version of “Agadat Deshe”

An undated spiral notebook featuring poems and various entries in Meir Ariel's handwriting. The poems include a long four-page draft of "Agadat Deshe" that differs from the final version, and includes verses not included in the recorded versions. Other early drafts in the notebook include "BaTor LeShikuf Re'ah," from his first album, "Shpritz Charuzim LeLuiz," from his second album, (working title: "Mashehu BeOfen Klali"), a draft of "Shir LeChol HaMishpacha," from his third album. The notebook further includes a poem titled "Al Ta'ase LeChavercha Ma SheKvar Asita Lo," whose opening lines found their way to "Doctor Hitchakmut", and many unpublished poems; sketches written for Yossi Banai, drafts of sketches for Tiki (Dayan?), Talia (Shapira?), Tuvia (Tzafir?) and Yossi; these may be related to the TV satire "Lo HaKol Over," aired in 1972.
The words "Shire Chag UMoed VeNofel" are written on the cover. This was probably a line he came up with at the time, and was later used as the title of his debut album.
Since "Agadat Deshe" was first recorded in 1972, the same year "Lo Hakol Over" was aired, the notebook is probably from that year.
All through the notebook are small illustrations and scribbles by Ariel.
[84] pages. 19 cm. Good condition.

Yehuda Amichai – Chapter from His 1963 Novel – Typed with Handwritten Corrections, Early 1960s

"The photo at the display window, Yehuda Amichai (part of the novel 'Skull on the Water,' soon to be published)."
Thirteen typewritten pages, a carbon copy with many handwritten corrections and changes, eventually published as the sixth chapter of Amichai's novel Lo MeAchshav Lo MiKan (Not of this Time, Not of this Place), published in 1963 (pages 35-46).
Some of the corrections are in Amichai's handwriting, others are in Ephraim Broide's handwriting. Broide was the editor of literary periodical Molad, and received the chapter for publication. This draft is different in many details from the final version of the chapter in the novel.
At the time the chapter was written, Amichai's working title for the novel was "Skull on the Water," the name deriving from a Mishna in Pirke Avot which is quoted on the book's half title page (see Hebrew). Eventually Amichai decided to call the novel Not of this Time, Not of this Place.
Written in the first person, this poetic novel is a juxtaposition of two possible, parallel realities, unravelling simultaneously. Yoel arrived in Palestine as child, joined the Palmach and fought in the 1948 War of Independence. In one of the parallel stories he returns to his hometown in Germany to avenge the death of a girl he loved who was murdered in the holocaust, while in the parallel story, he remains in Jerusalem, to cope with his unsuccessful and search for a new love.
13 pages, carbon copy of the period. Good condition, creases, few stains, slight damage to last pages.

Lea Goldberg – Original Review of J.D. Salinger’s Franny and Zooey, 1961

Review by Lea Goldberg of J.D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey, published in 1961. Twelve typewritten pages with handwritten notes and corrections, by Goldberg and Ephraim Broide, editor of Molad. Two of the pages feature full paragraphs in Goldberg's handwriting.
The review is titled BeShivhei HaGveret HaShmena (In Praise of the Fat Lady). Goldberg is referring to a story Zooey heard from their brother Seymour who used to tell him to shine his shoes before a live radio show. When Zooey pointed out that nobody sees his shoes on the radio, Seymour told him to do it for the 'Fat Lady,' an imaginary, lonely listener who deserves his best. Goldberg uses the fat lady as her starting point, sharply criticizing Salinger's prose and materials, comparing him, unfavorably to her preferred authors - Dostoyevsky, Thomas Mann, Nabokov, Herman Broch and others. The essay underlines the gap between Salinger's world, and the generation and culture it represents, and Goldberg's world.
The final version of the essay appears in a book of Goldberg's collected essays Mador UMeever - Bchinot UTeamim BaSifrut Haklalit, Sifriyat Hapoalim, 1977.
Good condition. Creases and folding lines.
