        EXCERPTS FROM VISIONS OF CODY - LIMITED EDITION, SIGNED - COPY #1

      New York: New Directions, 1960. First Edition. One of 750 numbered copies signed by the author, this being copy No.1. Octavo; 3/4 white paper over quarter purple cloth, with titles stamped in silver on spine and printed in purple and red on front panel; acetate dustwrapper; 128pp, [1]; illus; publisher's original printed prospectus laid in. Top edge slightly dusty, upper board edges lightly rubbed, with upper right corner tips gently tapped, though still sharp; Near Fine in a Near Fine, lightly-rubbed wrapper. Housed in a handsome half morocco and marbled paper slipcase. Culled from the pages of his 512-page manuscript, the excerpts from Kerouac's novel 'Visions of Cody' were shaped by his publisher at New Directions into a tight, cohesive package - something Kerouac's original manuscript lacked. At the center of the novel was Neal Cassady, a dominant influence in Kerouac's life who, as Dean Moriarty in 'On the Road,' achieved literary immortality. It would be another 13 years before the novel was published in full, some four years after Kerouac's death. Not an uncommon book, but as copies go, one could hardly do better than copy No.1. Charters A9.

        THE DAYS RUN AWAY LIKE WILD HORSES OVER THE HILLS - RIBBON COPY, WITH THE AUTHOR'S HOLOGRAPH CORRECTIONS

      Los Angeles: [S.i., n.d. but ca.late 1960's]. 218 lines typed on 4 sheets of white stock (8.5" x 11"), with the author's holograph corrections throughout in red, blue, and black ballpoint pen. Horizontal folds smoothed-out, staple holes at upper left corners, with light toning and thumb-soil to margins and a faint circular stain to pp.3-4; Very Good or better.

While a number of manuscript poems appear in the auction record over the last decade - most from the Groff and Runfola collections - none rise to this level of significance, and none were used to title a major collection.

        [Archive of Traced and Collaged Pornographic Pencil Sketches and Drawings Detailing One Man's Sexual History and Fantasies]

      [Washington D.C.], [ca. 1960-1990]. Very good. Four matching numbered three ring binders, with several additional binders and manila envelopes of supporting materials, drafts, xeroxed duplicates etc. Various media, most pencil on typing or tracing paper, some collage. Hundreds of pages in all. Very good with occasional dried (presumed) ejaculatory material to some pages (perhaps a dozen or so, posing small conservational issues relative to the size of the archive). A personally-tailored series of pornographic fantasies that portrays all of the women with whom the artist had been sexually involved (whether in reality or – it seems - in his imagination) throughout his life. Arranged chronologically and with a table of contents detailing the biographical and sexual particulars of each subject, the creator of these binders traced and collaged images from magazines and other sources (including in at least several cases original photos) to re-create these women in simulacra (finding look-alikes from magazines, pasting the heads of these women on the bodies of others). To these rather obsessive assemblages, the artist has added graphic and often exhaustive texts: describing scenes, providing dialogue, elaborating on biographical details. In short, an uncensored and almost narrative history of one man's sexual fantasies. And while these books were undoubtedly utilized primarily for masturbatory purposes, they were also made with obvious care over the course of what appears to be several decades. The artist composed them with an eye finely attuned to the visual effects he was creating. Almost two dozen individual women in all, arranged in tabbed sections over four binders. Many hundreds of pages of sketches and text total. In addition, source materials for the tracings and collages are included, as are numerous xeroxes of the final results. Admittedly, this collection is one of the most unsettling items we've handled. But it is also one of the most compelling. Henry Darger meets Raymond Pettibon: dark, weird, and twisted. But the work of an authentically original outsider, one who has given a powerful and unique rendering of his erotic world.

        Poems [Signed and with a short notation in Greek]

      Atlantic Monthly Press [Little, Brown and Company], 1960, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: near fine, First American editionA Very Good copy of the First American Edition, first printing (light handling soil and some tiny spots to boards, a few spots to the rear board, board corners bumped, some foxing to the closed page block's top edge), in a Near Fine dust jacket (spine lightly sunned, quite light edge wear, tiny chipping at spine ends and corners, small rub at lower portion of the front panel near the flap turn, expected age toning to the rear panel and to the flap edges --- in excellent condition for an unlaminated dust jacket of this age), SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS on the title page where he also has made a notation in Greek. Containing 127 pages, the book presents the first comprehensive collection of Seferis' Poetry published in the United States. While some of the verses selected for this book previously appeared in the 1948 translation of "The King of Asine", the balance of them appear here in English for the first time. A Greek Diplomat and Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, George Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. Signed copies of Seferis' works are extraordinarily scarce in any language, and our search of the of the auction records shows no signed copies of his works coming to auction in the last 55 years. Altogether a Very Good copy of an extremely difficult-to-find book from the first Greek author to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. A QUITE SCARCE COPY SIGNED AND WITH A SHORT NOTATION BY GEORGE SEFERIS.

He had been assigned to do a text piece on a farming village called Red Pepper [ ... ] John suggested that I accompany him to the village, only about forty miles outside Peking, to make photographs to illustrate his piece. I said, fine, if he would accompany me to the Yangtze to do the text to go with my pictures. New York thought it was a great idea" (Kessel, On Assignment, p. 149). The previous summer THE NEW YORKER dedicated an entire issue to Hersey's HIROSHIMA. His novel, A SINGLE PEBBLE, about an engineer searching for a dam site on the Yangtze, would be based on his time on the river with Kessel.4: [KESSEL, Dimitri?].

        Norman Granz presents Jazz at the Philharmonic, nr. 1 28.2.1960 20.30 uhr [Hamburg] Musikhalle,

      Hamburg: 1960 - Light creases from old folds, some very slight cracking of the colour surface and one or two mild scuff, minute closed tear to the right-hand edge, but overall very good. Vintage outsize A0 format. Size: 112 x 82.6 cm, off-set lithographic concert poster. Floated in a black museum box-style frame. Superb large-scale poster for the JATP tour of Germany in 1960, featuring Ella Fitzgerald, the Jimmy Giuffre Three, Paul Smith Quartet, Roy Eldridge, and the Shelly Manne Quintet. An example of the work of Kieser's early collaborative atelier with typographer Hans Michel (1952-62) which produced some truly remarkable work, graphically highly original, and imbued with a great sensitivity to the aesthetic of the artists being promoted. Here red, black and white typography in lower case sans serif is overlaid on a portrait of Ella in black on red to stunning effect. Produced solely for the German tour this is an uncommon poster, particularly so in the A0 format in such sharp condition.
