        Projekt: schwarze Brille. - Typoskript mit handschriftlichen Ergänzungen und 3 Originalfotografien, rückseitig handschriftlich bezeichnet.

      - 1960 - 19 x 19,5 cm. Brief und 13,5 x 18 cm. Fotos. Zusammen 4 Teile. Zentrales Objekt im Schaffen von Daniel Spoerri, das sein Werk massgeblich prägte. Im Vorwort der "Anekdoten zu einer Topographie des Zufalls" bezieht sich der Künstler auf dieses Objekt: "Vielleicht trägt es zum Verständnis meines Versuches bei, wenn ich hinzufüge, dass das Bedürfnis, Gegenstände nur zu beschreiben und in der Erinnerung nachzuzeichnen - anstatt sie zu handhaben und zu sammeln -, mir erst wichtig wurde, als ich eine Brille konstruiert hatte, deren Gläser mit Nadeln besetzt waren." (S. 5) Die Brille war ein Teil der Brillensammlung, die Spoerri zwischen 1961 und 1963 in Kopenhagen, Paris und Milano ausstellte. 1963 wurde die Sammlung in der Fluxuspublikation "L'optique moderne, Collection de Lunettes, prensenté (sic!) par Daniel Spoerri, avec en regard, d'inutiles notules par François Dufrêne" publiziert. Das hier abgebildete Original wurde, laut dem Vorwort von Emmett Williams in der "Topographie" 1964 in New York zerstört. - Der maschinengeschriebene Text erklärt die Absicht des Objektes, "meine bilder anstatt sie wie bisher zu fixieren, möglichst genau zu beschreiben, um die gegenstände von der fantasie des lesers abhängig zu machen". Der Text, auf vorgedrucktem Briefpapier Spoerris mit der Adresse "24 rue mouffetard" und als Kopfzeile "concerne: exposition mouvement au stedelijk museum amsterdam et moderna museet stockholm", die aber schon im Frühling 1961 stattfand, und bei der Spoerri mit Pontus Hulten als Kurator wirkte. Auf Grund des Briefpapiers kann angenommen werden, dass die Datierung "November 1961" stimmt. - Die drei Fotografien rückseitig handschriftlich bezeichnet und mit dem Titel "Schwarze Brille" versehen.

        Wait Till Next Year.

      New York: Random House, 1960. First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Boldly signed by Jackie Robinson and the co-author Carl T. Rowan on the front free endpaper. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. Illustrated with eight pages of black-and-white photographs. Rare and desirable signed by both Robinson and Rowan. Probably no other athlete has had a greater sociological impact on American sport than did Robinson. His success on the baseball field opened the door to black baseball players and thereby transformed the game. He also helped to facilitate the acceptance of black athletes in other professional sports, particularly basketball and football. His influence spread beyond the realm of sport, as he emerged in the late 1940s and 1950s as an important national symbol of the virtue of racial integration in all aspects of American life" (ANB). Carl T. Rowan was a groundbreaking journalist whose, "passionate reporting on race relations made him one of the most highly visible and vocal black men in America" (New York Times).

        "Shopping for Meat in Winter" - Original Manuscript Poem signed.

      , 1960. [New York], no year (c.1960). 21,7 cm x 28 cm. 1 sheet / Folded in center. Minor remains of a rusty paperclip (only visible at the backside of the paper). Original Manuscript poem by the American poet Oscar Williams of one of his most famous poems, "Shopping for Meat in Winter". The poem is written on a piece of large quarto sized blank paper with a 'Macadam Bond' watermark, the three stanzas filling the sheet, with Williams' signature at the foot of the page. Oscar Williams was the pen name of Oscar Kaplan (December 29, 1900 ? October 10, 1964), an American anthologist and poet.nWilliams was born Oscar Kaplan in Letychiv, Ukraine, son of Jewish parents Mouzya Kaplan and Chana Rapoport. He immigrated to New York at the age of seven. His first book, Golden Darkness, was awarded the Yale Younger Poets Prize.nnAmong his influential anthologies are Master Poems of the English Language, Immortal Poems of the English Language, The Pocket Book of Modern Verse, and the Little Treasury Poetry Series, which were used in colleges and high schools around the U.S. in the 1950s and 1960s. During his lifetime, anthologies he edited sold more than two million copies, a nearly unheard amount for books of poetry. Many of his anthologies are still being republished today. Though a friend and promoter of poets like Dylan Thomas and George Barker, Williams' own poetry is not highly regarded by critics, though he published several volumes during his lifetime, and is not nearly as accomplished as the poetry of his wife, Gene Derwood (1909?1954).nnAmong Williams' poems are "Revenge," "Poem," "Poet," "The Last Supper" and "I Sing an Old Song," "The City's Face".nnShopping for Meat in Winter is a typical Williams poem, with its urban theme, forced rhyme, and attempts at replicating the neo-Romanticism of the New Apocalypse.nn Shopping for Meat in Winternn What lewd, naked and revolting shape is this?n A frozen oxtail in the butcher's shopn Long and lifeless upon the huge block of woodn On which the ogre's axe begins chop chop.n The sun like incense fumes on the smoky glass,n The street frets with people, the winter windn Throws knives, prices dangle from shoppers' mouthsn While the grim vegetables, on parade, bring to mindn The great countryside bathed in golden sleep,n The trees, the bees, the soft peace everywhere--n I think of the cow's tail, how all summer longn It beat the shapes of harps into the air.nnOscar Williams and his poet-artist wife Gene Derwood sponsored an annual $15,000 poetry award which bears their name. They lived in a penthouse of an office building on Water Street. In his later years, Oscar Williams' home near Wall Street in Manhattan served as a mecca for young poets. Asked how he chose the poems used in his anthologies, he said, "How do you pick one girl to marry? In poetry it's divine polygamy. Generally, when a poem stays with me a long time that poem delivers the goods".nnThroughout his life, Oscar Williams eschewed his Jewish background. He was always mysterious about his origins and was buried by an Episcopal Church. He was survived by a son, Strephon Kaplan-Williams, who was raised in boarding schools and hardly ever interacted with his parents. His papers are housed at the Indiana University Lilly Library.

        Eine Stadt: Essen. Museum Folkwang, Essen, 18. März - 24. April 1977.

      Stempel vom Vorbeitzer innen. Außen leichte Gebrauchsspuren. Kleiner Bibliotheksaufkleber an der Seite. Als Künstlerbuch anläßlich der Ausstellung Feldmanns analog eines Kataloges herausgegeben vom Museum Folkwang, mit einer kurzen Einführung von Zdenek Felix. Feldmann war über einen Zeitraum von sechs Wochen in Essen und dem angrenzenden Ruhrgebiet mit dem Wagen unterwegs und hat hunderte von Schwarz-Weiß Fotos geschossen. Da er weder spektakuläre Motive wählte noch irgend einen Anspruch an Form und Technik stellte, entstand durch die 318 ausgewählten Fotografien ein Reigen unscharfer, wolkenverhangener, trister Bilder, die die graue Wirklichkeit von Zeit und Umgebung wiederspiegeln. Er kommentiert seine Vorgehensweise treffend: "Nur fünf Minuten des Tages sind interessant. Ich will den Rest zeigen, das normale Leben". Selten. [Vgl.

        [Photo Album]: Memory of South Viet-Nam

      Vietnam: , [circa 1960s]. Vietnam. [circa 1960s]. Quarto measuring 9" x 11.5". Green cloth with "Memory of South Viet-Nam" stamped on the front board with a map of Vietnam. Contains 78 color snap shot photographs and 9 black and white photographs measuring between 3.5" x 3.5" and 3.5" x 5" without captions. Very good album with some spotting and short tears with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by Bill Bunting while serving in Vietnam in the late 1960s. The album cover title reads, "Memory of South Viet-Nam" and the first page has a cartoon rabbit with "I'm just a hop from home" written above it. Bunting is referred to by a variety of nicknames including "Papa Whiskey," "Pee Wee Bill," and "Smoke Bringer." Throughout the album the men Bunting served with are depicted in their barracks listening to records, entertaining local girls, and posing for photos with friends. The outfit was made up of several races and Bunting, who was white, was friendly with an Asian American soldier and an African American soldier, both photographed numerous times in this album. On the front pastedown of the album some fellow soldiers wrote messages to Bill saying goodbye and wishing him good luck. "Papa Whiskey - Good luck to you when you get back to the world. Take care of all the broads and stay out of trouble." Another reads "when the power of love overcomes the love for power then we shall have peace." One photo shows the men dancing on a stage with a Vietnamese band and two Vietnamese women dancers during a USO style event. Helicopters, jeeps, one which they named "Whispering Death," and airplanes are also seen throughout the album as well as the landscape around the barracks. Men are posed in the bunks, by jeeps, and in one photo by rows of ammunition. The men are also photographed during their leisure activities enjoying bottles of whiskey and smoking. The last page has some newspaper clippings including two poems "When Death Comes" and "A Soldier's Fate." Another clipping with the headline "Nixon Confronts Boy, 10 'Your Brother is in Heaven'" is also featured in this section. The album ends with "I only wish that I was still over there now - Pee Wee Bill" written on the rear pastedown.A nice collection of Vietnam war photography from a young soldier. .

        Two Autograph Letters, Signed, to Seldon Rodman].

      Deya, Mallorca. 21 and 17 February 1960. - Two pages, quarto, in ink on rectos of two sheets of onion-skin letterhead. A few faint creases from mailing, otherwise very good to fine. Very good literary letters to fellow author, Selden Rodman, sending word of Graves' travels plans, discussing Rodman's work, and commenting on the literary climate of the times: "It was good to meet you at last & find that you matched up with my mental picture of you. Thanks very much for the . book which I read on the 707 on the way home. How curiously the author differs from . the down to earth English farmer's son. . Your man is a tapestry figure, and its a very fine tapestry: heroic pseudo- Roman. I loved it. . . ." and ". . . The Insiders [Rodman's 1960 book criticizing formalism in contemporary art] is a tricky project, because the American climate is so stifling to independence of creation that most of an artist's time is spent in fighting for air, instead of getting on with his job. Our village is full of refugees from the chain gang, as they call themselves, but I guess that artists in the U.S. have an easier time than writers because the market isn't quite so exacting ." Poet, dramatist and art critic Seldon Rodman shared another interest with Graves -- in 1937 he published his dramatic narrative poem about T.E. Lawrence, LAWRENCE: THE LAST CRUSADE. Accompanied by a retained carbon copy of a 19 February 1960 typed letter from Rodman in response to Graves's letters, and a clipped article from the NYT about a later, 1964 appearance by Graves at City College, New York, and his Shakespeare revisions.

        And Grieve, Lesbia

      NY: Aardvark Press. (1960). Signed by the author. Apparently the fourth collection of poems by this Mohawk poet, who has also over the years become an important figure as a publisher -- particularly as a publisher of relatively unknown Native American writers -- as well as casting a high profile as both a Native American writer himself and as a gay writer. Near fine in self-wrappers. Scarce: we've only seen this title a small handful of times, and never signed. Kenny died earlier this year. First Edition. Softcover. Near Fine.

        THE ONLY RUSSIAN NOBEL LAUREATE IN ECONOMICS] Ekonomicheskii raschet nailuchshego ispolzovaniya resursov [i.e. The Best Use of Economic Resources]

      Izd-vo AN SSSR, Moscow 1960 - 348 pp. Publisher's binding. Very good condition. Previous owner's inscription, spotted to edges, extremities rubbed, corners bumped, pencil marks. First edition. Second printing. Leonid Kantorovich (1912-1986) is best known as the only Russian economist to have become a Nobel Laureate. In 1942 Kantorovich had already written the first version of this monograph. He was so far ahead of his time-and thought so far outside contemporary notions of political economy-that the book was not published until 17 years later. Only then did his pioneering ideas begin to be recognized and accepted by other economists. Subsequently, this book was translated into many languages. Ultimately, he was recognized in the West with the Nobel Prize. The book itself is a summary of the author's long-term research into methods of linear programming which is further developed here and applied to economic planning. The core of this book, and its main value, consists in its use of specific examples in modeling practical solutions to economic problems. [Attributes: First Edition]
