The World Uranium Hearing and Autograph Letter Signed
by BIEGERT, Claus
(West Germany): World Uranium Hearing. 1992. Program for the World Uranium Hearing, founded by Biegert, and held in Salzburg in 1992, timed with the quincentennial of Columbus' landing in America. Bilingual program, English and Russian. With an autograph letter signed laid in from Biegert to Matthiessen, reminding him that he is looking for "world renowned authors from all continents who will be the reporters at the World Uranium Hearing." Also laid in is a folded 11-3/4" x 19-1/2" poster publicizing the event, with the heading, "The Death That Creeps From the Earth." The program is near fine in stapled wrappers, with Biegert's address written on the front in Matthiessen's hand, along with "Contact: K. Vonn/ John I./ Robt Hughes/ W. Merwin" -- presumably referring to Kurt Vonnegut, John Irving, Robert Hughes, and W.S. Merwin, all of them good friends of Matthiessen as well as "world renowned authors" who might be enlisted to support this event. First Edition. Softcover. Near Fine. (Inventory #: 032457)
