      Cairo, 1960. - 6 ff., notated in black ink on 12-stave Cameo Music Papers No. 5-3124, rectos only. Folio. Signed at the foot of each page and dated "Cairo 1960" on first and last pages. With copyright notices to foot of page 1: "2016 by Halim El-Dabh Music LLC", signed, and "1960 by C.F. Peters Corp 373 Park Ave. South New York, N.Y. 10016". A fair copy, including autograph note to page 3: "In whichever order, try to include as many notes within the time limits, including some in chords if so desired. Start and end with one of the heavy shaded notes". - "Conceived in 1954, 'Thulathia' was composed in 1960 and first performed at the Brookline Public Library in Brookline, Massachusetts. 'Thulathia' means 'a cello unification of three into one', i. e., 'a trio in one'. Grape clusters of the vine connect the energy. The concept is extended to include a cluster of grapes in a united grape vine. Instructions for playing the grapes is explained at the bottom of page 3" (notes provided by the composer). - The Egyptian-born American composer, performer, ethnomusicologist, and educator El-Dabh came to the U.S. in 1950, becoming a part of the New York music scene that included Cage, Varèse, and Hovhaness. He went on to study composition with Krenek, Copland, Dallapiccola, and others. An early pioneer of electronic music, El-Dabh composed one of the earliest known works of tape music, or "musique concrète", in 1944, 'The Expression of Zaar'. He also scored four ballets for Martha Graham: 'Clytemnestra' (1958), 'One More Gaudy Night' (1961), 'A Look at Lightning' (1962), and 'Lucifer' (1975). "El-Dabh is probably the best known composer of Arabic descent and his works are highly regarded in Egypt, where he is considered the foremost living composer among that nation's 'second generation' of contemporary composers" (Wikipedia). - Slightly worn and creased; light red stain to upper left margin of pages 1 and 5.

        Photo Album]: 1960s Discotheque Dancer Photo Album

      New York 1960 - Oblong quarto. Brown leather over paper boards with "Photographs" embossed on the front board. A collection of 132 black and white or color photographs affixed to stiff black paper as well as newspaper clippings and some postcards. Various sizes with most being 3.5" x 3.5". Boards are good only with tape replacing the spine, chips, tears, and a few present but detached pages, overall very good. The assemblage contains photographs and ephemera related to the dancing career of Joyce Pickens. Originally from New York, Pickens traveled the United States and Canada performing at clubs and supplementing her income by staying on in some cities to teach the newest dance crazes to hip citizens. In an offprint of an article from a May 1964 Toronto Daily is a discussion of how the Discotheque trend had arrived from Paris and Pickens had stayed on to teach the dances, dubbing her "Toronto's original discotheque girl." They quote her as saying, "We're headed into another era like the 'roaring twenties.' When the big bands died, people gave up going out to dance, except at private parties. Now with the discotheque, they can have all the variety and sounds they want. everything, at the flick of a turntable switch." The photos show Pickens posing in a variety of costumes, as a cowgirl, a flamenco dress, even a bikini, and in numerous clubs and venues including California's Moulin Rouge Club. Also tipped in are business cards for some of the backing bands that she danced with such as Alfredito and his Mambo Orchestra, Barry Del Rae, and Andrew Alvarez. There are also a handful of curious drawings, one of a hand-colored treasure map, another pencil drawing labeled "Holiday Inn." The end of the album has small newspaper clippings containing advertising for costumers and nightclubs. An interesting and plentiful collection of the earliest gestation phase of the disco area.

        Sketchbook with 119 full page drawings of female nudes on one side of the page.

      Berkeley: Circa 1960s - 12 x 9 inches. Pencil, ink and charcoal drawings of nudes. Provenance: Estate of the artist.James Steward - exhibition notes 1996.When Berkeley-based artist Edward Hagedorn died in 1982, few members of the Bay Area art-going public would have known of his work. Although he lived in the Bay Area for eighty years, after much early success the eccentric and idealistic Hagedorn, troubled by personal shyness, ceased to exhibit his work publicly in the late 1930s. Yet he remained obsessed with creating images of primal force. Despite living the last thirty years of his life as a virtual recluse-described by an artist colleague as a "walking question mark with no use for success"-he left behind him a remarkable body of work that is only now coming to be known. This work suggests that it is fair to appraise Hagedorn as the most important Expressionist artist to have come out of California.Born in San Francisco in 1902, Hagedorn enrolled at the San Francisco Art Association by the age of sixteen, and then around 1923 to 1925 at the California School of Fine Arts, where his teachers included artists who had been profoundly influenced by the Armory Show and who had even participated in the Pan-Pacific Exposition.Hagedorn exhibited frequently throughout the late 1920s and '30s with members of the "Society of Six," even winning honors from the Brooklyn Museum and the Pennsylvania Academy, sharing their Fauvist-influenced, Expressionist aesthetic. However he resisted frequent overtures from dealers and curators that might have brought him increased acclaim. Enabled in part by the inheritance of substantial means from his maternal family, Hagedorn abruptly ceased to show his work publicly in the late 1930s. The spirit went out of much of his work from about 1940, and although Hagedorn continued to make art throughout most of his life, it often devolved into trivializing depictions of the female nude.

Minor browning to board edges, a couple of faint marks to boards; an excellent copy. Title page in red and black. With 16 plates of black and white photographic reproductions. "Author's" edition, one of 100 copies. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title, "To Hon. Clark Clifford, from his good friend over many years, with kindest regards, Harry S. Truman, Independence, August 27, 1960". The recipient, Clark Clifford (1906–1998), was a hugely influential Democratic advisor, holding the role of Counsel to the President during Truman's time in office. His purview encompassed both domestic and foreign affairs, as well as strategy for the 1948 presidential campaign. Clifford first came to Truman's notice in 1946 when, in his role as Naval Aide to the President, he co-authored the Clifford-Elsey Report. This brought George Kennan's sceptical views of Moscow into the Oval Office, and urged a tough line against Russia. Clifford shaped the central message of Truman's 1948 campaign; attacking the Republican "Do Nothing" Congress, sensing that a more aggressive approach would appeal to voters against Truman's opponent, New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey. Clifford urged Truman to recognise the State of Israel in May 1948, against the objections of the State Department. Clifford left the White House in 1950 to practice law in Washington, however, he remained a trusted advisor to subsequent Democratic presidents, including, when this book was presented in 1960, holding a seat on Kennedy's Committee on the Defense Establishment. In 1968 Clifford was made Secretary of Defence by Lyndon B. Johnson. With Clifford's bookplate to the front pastedown. The first edition of this work was published in 1953; a special edition of 1,000 numbered and signed copies were produced in 1960. This "Author's" edition was issued for presentation by Truman to his closest friends and associates. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Malcolm

      London: Secker & Warburg. (1960). First. First English edition. Fine in just about fine dustwrapper with very slight toning on the spine, and with a long blurb by Dorothy Parker. Perhaps the author's most important novel, later dramatized by Edward Albee. Inscribed by the author to American composer Virgil Thomson: "For Virgil Thomson, with sincere wishes from James Purdy." Purdy's novel Out with the Stars (1992) features a central character, Abner Blossom, based upon and inspired by Virgil Thomson. In an autobiographical essay, Purdy stated that his book Eustace Chisholm and the Works "won the strong admiration of the noted composer Virgil Thomson, who had been following my career from the beginning and who was a special admirer of my novel The Nephew." .

        To Kill a Mockingbird

      J.B. Lippincott, Philadelphia 1960 - First edition. Fine in a nice very good plus dustwrapper with one tiny nick, and some rubbing at the spine folds, but which is original to the book and completely unsophisticated. Advance Review Copy with publicity photo laid in featuring the iconic image of Harper Lee by Michael Brown. A classic novel about adolescence and the battle against injustice, basis for the equally classic film with Gregory Peck and, in his pivotal film debut Robert Duvall as Boo Radley. The author's first novel, winner of the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Exceptionally scarce in unrestored condition; we've never seen another copy with the publicity photo.
