Description:
N.p.: N.p., 1929. Purchase, Rights, and Royalties agreement between James M. Cain and Alfred A. Knopf for Cain's first book, "Our Government." SIGNED by both Cain and Knopf, with numerous hand corrections and initials by both parties, the most notable being a notation by Knopf on the first page that the contract was voided by way of a letter from Knopf in 1933. On the last page, there is a typed notation that says, "Canceled by Mutual Consent and dated July 1949." Overall, it would appear that the contract was held in place from the time of the book's publication in 1929 through 1933, at which time it was superseded by a new one. The author's copy of his first book contract, one of probably 3-4 copies that have ever existed, preceded only by Cain's magazine and newspaper appearances, most notably in Mencken's "American Mercury." Near Fine in an attractive, pre-folded, six-page contract document with a black ribbon tie, as issued.

Description:
N.p.: N.p., 1965. Standard writer's contract between Jack Nicholson and the agency of Adams and Ray, dated March 4, 1965, signed by all three parties, and setting up a standard 10% fee for the agency for any work obtained on Nicholson's behalf. Though Nicholson is not known today as a writer, in 1965 he had aspirations to be one. Just prior to the signing of this contract he had co-written the screenplay for "Thunder Island" (1963), a film in which he did not appear, and "Flight to Fury" (1964). The latter was an early effort for noted director Monte Hellman, who would go on to feature Nicholson in his classic Western films, "Ride in the Whirlwind" (1965) and "The Shooting" (1966). After signing with Adams and Ray, Nicholson wrote "The Trip" (1967) for Roger Corman, "Head" (1968) with director Bob Rafelson, and his directorial debut, "Drive, He Said" (1971). "Drive, He Said" would be Nicholson's final effort as a writer, and one of several key films he would make with BBS, the production company… Read More
