Title: Grif: A Story of Australian Life
Author: B. L. Farjeon

Printing Year: 1898 Author-Signed Edition

Condition/Details: Bound in green cloth with bright gilt embossing, this antique volume is a scarce autographed edition of this work by English novelist Benjamin Leopold Farjeon (1838 -1903), who at the age of 16 emigrated to Australia in 1854 to try his luck on the gold fields. He was unsuccessful and turned his attention to journalism. He left for New Zealand in 1861 where he worked in Dunedin on the Otago Daily Times. His first book, "Shadows on the Snow: A Christmas story" appeared in 1865. He sent it to Dickens who responded favorably. Thus encouraged, Farjeon returned to England where he made a successful career for himself with his pen.

"Grif," his second novel, first appeared in Dunedin in 1866. It was reprinted in London in two volumes in 1870. The story concerns the lives of people living in the Melbourne slums during the gold rush. The characters discuss political issues of the day, including the question as to whether or not the Governors of the Australian colonies should be elected by the people. Farjeon published over fifty novels, several of which have Australian themes.

Title: The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test
Author: Tom Wolfe
Publisher: Farrar Straus and Giroux
Printing Year: 1968

Condition/Details: Bound in white cloth with bright multi-color lettering, this volume is a scarce second printing of this work by Thomas Kennerly "Tom" Wolfe, Jr. (born March 2, 1931, although his Who's Who entry gives his date of birth as March 2, 1930), a best-selling American author and journalist.

"The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" is one of the most striking examples of this phenomenon, in which journalists and essayists experimented with a variety of literary techniques, mixing them with the traditional ideal of dispassionate, even-handed reporting. The book, a narrative account of the adventures of the Merry Pranksters, a famous '60s counter-culture group, -was highly experimental in its use of onomatopoeia, free association, and eccentric use of punctuation - such as multiple exclamation marks and italics - to convey the manic ideas and personalities of Ken Kesey and his followers.
