Archive Of Robert Parker-Related Documents, Including A Signed Photograph And Signed Dust Jacket
by ROBERT PARKER
ROBERT B. PARKER (1932-2010). Parker was an American mystery writer. He was known for creating the character of private detective Spenser, who has appeared on television and in films in addition to Parker’s novels. Archive. 5 pieces. Mostly 1980s. An archive of items related to American mystery novelist Robert B. Parker, including two signed “RBP”. Some of the items are related to the Lord John Press, a small, California-based publisher that specialized in limited editions of previously-unpublished short works by literary greats, including John Updike and Samuel Beckett. It was founded by longtime book and autograph collector Herb Yellin. Lord John Press published several of Parker’s works from the Spenser universe. All items are in fine condition. DS. 2pgs. 1982. California. A dust jacket and title page from Parker’s Spenser-related short story Surrogate, which was published by the Lord John Press in 1982. The red dust jacket is signed “RBP”. PS. 1pg. N.d. N.p. A black-and-white promotional photograph of Parker, signed “RBP”. 1983. A proof for Parker’s “A Spenserian Sonnet” as published by the Lord John Press. The sonnet is printed on a large sheet of paper with publication information and a proof sticker at the bottom. The first letter of the sonnet is missing, presumably because a decorative initial was to be added later once the proof was approved. A color photograph of Parker at a promotional event for Poodle Springs, the detective drama left incomplete by mystery novelist Raymond Chandler (1888-1959) upon his death and completed by Parker in 1989. A black-and-white photograph of Parker at a book signing. (Inventory #: 3822)
