In it, John Steinbeck grants permission for The Theatre Guild to adapt his Play, OF MICE AND MEN, for the Radio; and to Broadcast and Re-Broadcast the Radio Play Adaptation. The AGREEMENT is SIGNED in JOHN STEINBECK'S name by his SECRETARY (i.e. Signed Secretarially).

The folder has no real relation to the Radio Script and Typed Signed Agreement, but it is of interest in that Peter has written his notes on both the front and back sides of the folder, including that he entered (into his system) the documents on 10/3/91, and, on several places, his price of $6,500. The folder is in POOR condition, split in two parts, torn and chipped along the edges. The folder is included only in that it might be of general interest and because it provides provenance.

    "Ariel is a unique book - it scarcely seems a book at all, rather a keen, cold gust of reality as though somebody had knocked out a window pane on a brilliant night. It is a plangent, painful book, with all the pain translated into beauty, nothing less. Poem after poem seems to have been waiting there always to be recognized." - Robert Penn Warren.

    About CHARLES WENDELL (from a UC Santa Barbara website):

    ******Charles Wendell, b.1919 d. 1982, Professor of Eastern Languages; Germa nic and Slavic Languages; Religious Studies; Eastern Languages: University of California Santa Barbara.

    Charles Wendell was a brilliant linguist, fluent in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, Turkish, Latin, and Greek. In 1967 Wendell joined the faculty at Santa Barbara as an Assistant Professor of Arabic. He was later advanced to Associate Professor with a joint appointment with the Eastern Languages Department, where he continued to teach Arabic, and with the Religious Studies Department, where he offered courses in Islamic religion.

    A meticulous scholar, Wendell, whose articles were erudite and enlightening, contributed to several important books on Middle Eastern culture and civilization. But his interests were quite broad, ranging from the history of early Islam to intellectual developments in modern Egypt. Early in his scholarly career Wendell's translation of Muhammad Abduh by Osman Amin was published by the American Council of Learned Societies. Later books included The Evolution of the Egyptian National Image: from its Origins to Ahmad Lutfi al-Sayyid and Five Tracts of Hasán al-Banná (both by UC Press). At his death Professor Wendell was engaged in a long range, two volume project on the 8th century Arabic classic The Book of Kalilah and Dimnah. Planned and begun were a new translation of the work and a full volume to "deal as exhaustively as possible with the biography of the author and his historical and cultural ambience." Such thoroughness was typical of Wendell's scholarship.******

    WARREN BUFFETT Book on Contract Bridge SIGNED & LOVINGLY INSCRIBED to HIS BRIDGE PARTNER and GOOD FRIEND

    THE OFFICIAL SYSTEM OF CONTRACT BRIDGE: THE OFFICIAL BOOK ON THE OFFICIAL SYSTEM. Produced by Bridge Headquarters, Inc., New York; and Published by The John C. Winston Company, Chicago,1931.

    SIGNED and LOVINGLY INSCRIBED by the great Bridge Player and even greater Investor WARREN BUFFETT to his long-time BRIDGE PARTNER and FRIEND SHARON OSBERG.

    "To Sharon - / This was the nursery book my mother read to me at age 1. / Unfortunately she emphasized Chapter 17 / Love, / Warren".

    Chapter 17 discusses the subject of overbidding, how it can be either a disastrous move or a smart tactic. Hmm. I think Warren applied the smart tactic part of the lesson in his business dealings!

    Not just signed and inscribed, but affectionately so.

    Sharon Osberg is not only a bridge partner to Warren Buffett but to Bill Gates as well.

    The Book: Hardcovers, faux suede leather covered boards, gilt lettering and designs on the front cover and spine (though mostly faded away on the spine), 5x7.5 inches, [2], vi, 236 pages.

    In addition to the Contract Bridge book, the lot includes 15 booklets on Bridge from the collection of Sharon Osberg. Each of the booklets has a mailing label addressed to Sharon Osberg (or Sharon Smith, her earlier married name) on the back or front cover.

    GOOD Condition: The Contract Bridge book is darkened at the spine, rubbed at the boards, and has inner pages that are lightly toned, but it is a solid, complete, nice copy. Warren Buffett's inscription on the title page is bright and clear.

    The Osberg collection of 15 Bridge booklets are in generally GOOD condition, a couple of the covers are splitting at the spine, and a few have some creases, but overall they are solid and clean, and together they provide great provenance for the book.

    Want to really know how Warren Buffett learned to invest? He learned to play Bridge, taught to him by Sharon Osberg.

    A UNIQUE TREASURE once it's gone it's gone.

    FOR IMAGES of Osberg together with Buffett and Gates, Google "Warren Buffett" "Sharon Osberg" or "Bill Gates" "Sharon Osberg", and you will find images of her with one, or the other, or both.

    FOR IMAGES of Osberg together with Buffett and Gates, Google: "Warren Buffett" "Sharon Osberg" or Google: "Bill Gates" "Sharon Osberg", and you will find images of her with one, or the other, or both.

    There is a great interview with Sharon Osberg that delves into her close relationship with Warren Buffett and Bill Gates. Google: "Sharon Osberg" "Warren Buffett" "SFGate" or Google: "THE BRIDGE CLUB / WHAT DO SHARON OSBERG, WARREN BUFFETT and BILL GATES SHARE? A LOVE OF BRIDGE".

    And I leave you with this tidbit:

    When Sequoia [a large Venture Capital firm] was seeking new independent directors 12 years ago, Mr. Buffett recommended Ms. Osberg. In a 2006 interview with The San Francisco Chronicle, she described Mr. Buffett as her best friend, and she has often spent Thanksgiving with him in Omaha. A former Wells Fargo executive, Ms. Osberg is perhaps best known as a world-class bridge player. She has won two world championships, and she and Mr. Buffett play bridge electronically four times a week. - NY Times 2015.
