This form will search the category Science and Medicine: General Books. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search the category Science and Medicine: General Books. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

Oriana Fallaci - Typed Letter Signed - April 7 1990

Author Letter
Single leaf, one sided, 300 word (approx) typed letter, in English, from Fallaci, on her headed and watermarked notepaper to a friend in New York, dated 'Florence, April 7, 1990'. The letter was laid in to a copy of Gustave Dore's 'Londra' (Sansoni, Firenze, 1987) which she had sent as a gift to the recipient. In the letter she talks about finding the Dore, and describes celebrating completing the galleys for her novel 'Inshallah'. In the last paragraph, she comments about the deterioration of Florence where 'Tons and tens of black people (are) dancing and singing' and that ' Bad, bad, bad times are ahead of us, .. '. Fallaci letters very rarely appear for sale, and few are quite so revealing.
