        Current Anthropology

      University of Chicago Press, Chicago 1959 - 51 volumes complete with diagrams, illustrations, plates, maps, figures, indexes. Quarto (10 1/4" x 8 1/2") issued in wrappers. Some reprints, most first editions. Current Anthropology, whose first issue was launched in 1959, is one of the discipline's oldest and most distinguished journals, and has been sponsored since its founding by the Wenner-Gren Foundation. The journal was the first of its kind, championing an interdisciplinary approach alongside a commitment to international dialogue, while fostering a community of international scholars. It became known for its innovative format that combined major research papers with responses solicited from the field. The format, now known as the "CA treatment" was unique in its time and was copied by other journals such as Behavioral and Brain Sciences. While the journal has changed over the years, its original principles are still clearly present and can be traced back to the unique collaboration between the Foundation, led by Paul Fejos,and the anthropologist Sol Tax (University of Chicago). Fejos and Tax first worked together as organizers of a state of the art conference on Meso-American ethnology in 1949. Tax edited the volumes that resulted from this meeting. During the next decade, as the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health in the United States directed their considerable resources towards the funding of large-scale research projects. Fejos explored alternative avenues to expand the reach and impact of the Foundation on the discipline. One shift was to direct funding towards activities that fostered international communication: meetings, with their subsequent publications, would encourage contacts among scholars and permit them to share their knowledge on a worldwide scale. With this in mind, Fejos organized an International Symposium on Anthropology in 1952 whose aim was to take a total inventory of the field and through this help the Foundation to set up new directions for funding. With this in mind, Fejos convened over 80 participants and the final proceedings (some 50 papers and transcripts of lengthy discussions) appeared in 1953 in two edited volumes published by University of Chicago Press: Anthropology Today: An Encyclopedic Inventory, A.L. Kroeber (ed.); and An Appraisal of Anthropology Today, Sol Tax, Loren Eiseley, Irving Rouse, and Carl Voegelin (eds.). With the success of this symposium and its volumes, Fejos decided to condense and update the findings into a volume published by the Foundation in 1955 as "The Yearbook of Anthropology." Inspired by this output, but frustrated by the logistics of publication, in 1957 Fejos invited Sol Tax to develop a plan that could enable worldwide exchange of ideas to continue, but which would be more immediate and flexible. While he had initially thought of publishing updates to the "Anthropology Today" proceedings in a series of books, he was adamant about the need to consult with anthropologists around the world and see what larger consensus might emerge. Intensive discussions began across the globe: Tax traveled to over 30 countries and organized a series of conferences at the Foundation in New York City. He continued to imagine the initiative primarily as a type of yearbook summarizing the current state of research until 1958. This changed after Burg Wartenstein was inaugurated by the Foundation. Its first scholarly event was a symposium dedicated to exploring new ideas for Current Anthropology. Tax, Fejos and twelve invited scholars gathered, and Tax's innovations were consolidated into a proposal that continues to represent the backbone of the journal to this day. Current Anthropology was to be a journal, not a yearbook. It was to address a worldwide community of anthropologists, and its goal would be to represent and unify the "anthropological sciences" by presenting articles across the discipline. Importantly, Tax envisioned a community of scholars rather then a representation of national [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Jargon Books in Association with Corinth Books, New York 1959 - Creeley, Robert. A FORM OF WOMEN. Inscribed to Allen Ginsberg. New York: Jargon Books in Association with Corinth Books, 1959. First edition. This 8vo., Stiff illustrated wrappers. Wrappers a trifle soiled, else fine. Inscribed on the title page: " For Allen / with love / Bob" Issued as Jargon 33. inscribed to Allen Ginsberg. "INTERVIEWER [Lewis MacAdams and Linda Wagner-Martin] When did you meet Ginsberg? CREELEY In 1956 - after leaving Black Mountain, it must have been in early January or so, then stopping in Albuquerque with friends to pull myself together, then going on to San Francisco where Ed Dorn and his family were. I was trying to get out of my own habits. My marriage had finally ended altogether - and I was sick of what I knew, so to speak. So anyhow I decided to go west. I got to Ed's place about four in the afternoon, and he and Helene drove me around a little. I remember we got very drunk or I at least did - and Rexroth had invited me over for dinner. I can remember vomiting all over the sidewalk, just before I went in, something like an hour or so late. Then later that same night, after Ed had taken off for a job he had as a baggage clerk at Greyhound, suddenly Allen appeared. He was working at the same place only on an earlier shift. It's so characteristic of Allen to be there like that, that is, to come so directly to what interests him. And I was God knows flattered - we talked most of the night about Olson and the scene at Black Mountain. And he told me what was happening in San Francisco. Later, I remember walking around the city with him and Phil Whalen, with Allen inevitably carrying the big black binder notebook, reading us "Howl" every time we sat down or stopped for something to eat. It was really a beautiful time - everything was so open, just poised on its own energies". - The Paris Review, Fall 1968 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Les Cahiers du Jazz. Revue Musicale. 1 - 16/17.

      Paris: Les Nouvelles Editions Musicales Modernes, 1959-64 - 17 issues in 16 volumes, octavo. Original printed card wraps. Housed in a black, leather-entry slip-case. Some rubbing to the wraps, occasional toning, one or two short edge-splits in the text, and a few check-marks in the discographies, but overall a very good set. Occasional notation in the text. First editions of the complete run of Malson, Filipacchi and Tenot's highly influential periodical. Consciously modelled on the Cahiers du Cinema, the content was of unimpeachable seriousness, and unquestionable excellence. Contributors include Malson, Michel-Claude Jalard, Gunther Schuller, Jean Clouzet and Michel Delorme, with discographies by Jorgen Grunnet Jepsen. While condition is perhaps not ideal, this is an extremely difficult run to complete, here attractively presented. [Attributes: First Edition]

        BASS, SAUL, Designer) ANATOMY OF A MURDER (1959)

      Columbia 1959 - Vintage original 41 x 27" (104 x 69 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. James Stewart, George C. Scott, dir: Otto Preminger; Columbia. This is one of the greatest of all of Saul Bass' movie posters, and I personally find it more perfectly laid out than his other great masterpiece, "Vertigo". It is getting increasingly difficult to find a genuinely nice example of this poster, much less one which is unbacked and entirely unrestored, as this one is. Folded, with a few scattered pinholes and some light creasing near the bottom of the poster, just ABOUT FINE.

        INVITATION TO A BEHEADING

      New York: G.P. Putnam&#39;s Sons, (1959). First American edition. Hardcover. Very good/very good. 8vo. Original quarter-cloth over boards. Very good in like jacket. Some moderate chipping to head and heal of jacket spine, with attendant rubbing to book tips. Some edgewear to DJ with several small closed tears. Unclipped. Overall, clean and sound. INSCRIBED by Dmitri Manbokov (Vladimir and Vera&#39;s son and the translator of this book) to Matthew Brucolli: "For talented, loyal, hard-working, / long-suffering Matt Bruccoli / with warm wishes / Dmitri Nabokov / Monteaux, 13 July 1986. A significant association of the first of Nabokov&#39;s Russian-language novels to be translated into English. Inscribed by the book&#39;s translator, Nabokov&#39;s son Dmitri, to bibliographer Matthew Brucolli (1931-2008). Brucolli studied English with Nabokov at Cornell and would go on to publish several books under his own imprint based on Nabokov&#39;s Ithaca lectures. The bibliographer also covered Nabokov for the DICTIONARY OF LITERARY BIOGRAPHY. In addition, Brucolli and Dmitri would go on to edit an edition of Nabokov&#39;s SELECTED LETTERS (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1989), a project they were likely in the midst of at the time of this inscription. A splendid triad of associations and a title rarely encountered inscribed, by either the author or the translator.

        NAKED LUNCH

      Grove Press (1959), New York - 8vo. Original black board with half cloth spine. Near fine in a very good plus jacket. DJ has small closed tear to rear panel. Mild edgewear. Trace rubbing. Else remarkably bright and retaining its original $6.00 flap price. Tiny bump to one corner of book. Else sharp and sound. Topstain unmarred. Very handsome overall. INSCRIBED by Burroughs to title page: "For Michael / Griffin / all the best / moments / William S. Burroughs / 3/16/91." First US edition / printing (both book and jacket) of the Beat masterpiece, which - copyright date aside - was not actually published in this edition until 1962, which also contains the first book appearances of Burroughs' "Deposition: Testimony concerning a Sickness," and "Letter from a Master Addict to Dangerous Drugs." A landmark novel, it led to several important court decisions on indecency and censorship. Certainly Burroughs' best-known work (it was successfully adapted by David Cronenberg into a fine film of the same name), it is also arguably Burroughs' best and most enduring as well. One of 3500 copies. And incidentally, there are no "states" of this jacket, contrary to some dealer's listings. There are only later printings of the jacket married to earlier editions of the book; see Shoaf 2b-i. [Maynard and Miles 2Ab]. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Naipaul is at his best in these swift caricatures of human depravity" (San Francisco Chronicle).
