      1960 - Original copy of the rare First Issue of the early ERB fanzine. This issue was mimeo printed and has a very non-professional look to it. When it was published in 1960 there was ver little means of communication among collectors. This publication help lead to organized fandom. It has a feature article by Darrell C Richardson on the early Tarzan and ERB pulps. Some where in the 1970s or 1980s this first edition was reprinted. Be assured that this is not the reprint and might be the highest grade original copy to survive. Printed in a very very limited quantity. Now you have a chance to own a piece of collecting history that might never be available again. Fine condition. Condition: FN

        Sharaku, A Complete Collection. Reproduction by the Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints

      OFFERING: An extraordinary publishing endeavor, more than 10 years in the making, the two issued deluxe volumes with texts in English and 72 tipped-in, facsimile reproductions, individually sleeved in 460 x 360 mm mats with mounted English and Japanese labels. No further volumes were published because of the much higher than expected production costs. 55 of the facsimile reproductions are color woodblock printed, made from new woodblocks with traditional nishiki-e methods, using examples of authentic Sharaku prints. Of these, 36 are finished with applied powdered mica, using kira-zuri technique. 17 facsimile reproductions are collotypes of b/w print designs, attributed by Yoshida to Sharaku and published for the first time. Yoshida's texts, (his 1943 monograph on Sharaku was the first by a Japanese scholar), draw on years of original research. EDITION NOTE: The Adachi Institute was established in 1928 to reproduce rare ukiyo-e prints in the original woodblock print format.Because of Adachi's working methods, the edition would have been limited to no more than 200 unnumbered sets. RARITY: Rare, I know of no other complete specimen offered for sale in the last 15 years. A worldwide institution search finds 19 sets, including the National Diet Library of Japan, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Public Library and University of Hawaii.

(Mica with a black sheen was used for Sharaku prints until a sumptuary edict by the Tokugawa Shogunate outlawed its use. Sharaku subsequently designed prints that called for red ground mica.) B) The complete set of 8 full-length Kabuki actor figure prints (hosoban) with applied red mica, including the 7 known prints with 2 full-length figures from the equally esteemed Period II. C) 4 prints of the young Sumo wrestler, Daidozan, three from Period III and the sole oban print from Period IV.

        Drawings for the Bible

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company 1960 - Illustrated by Marc Chagall. Text by Gaston Bachelard. Translated by Stuart Gilbert. First American edition, published the same year in Paris by Verve. Publisher's pictorial cloth boards illustrated by Chagall. A very good or better copy, with some light wear and chipping to the spine, but with the spine intact and extremely sturdy (uncommon for this edition), some wear to the extremities, bright boards, library stamp and bookplate to the front free endpaper, some very faint spotting and minor residue to the pastedowns, otherwise extremely bright and fresh interior. Overall, an attractive and presentable copy. Marc Chagall (1887-1985) was a prolific artist, born in Belarus and active in France, who is best known for his use of color and images drawn from folklore. His Jewish heritage and spiritual interests manifested themselves throughout his artistic career. After successfully collaborating with Parisian art dealer Ambroise Vollard, Chagall created a series of 105 etchings inspired by the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), begun 1930-1939 and completed 1952-1956. The etchings were published together in 1956 (the English title was Illustrations for the Bible) and he received much critical success. A complementary publication, Drawings for the Bible contains 96 heliogravure (photogravure) reproductions of Chagall's drawings from 1958-1959 "on biblical themes which in general he had not dealt [with] for his illustrations for the Bible reproduced in Verve 33/34." Additionally, this edition has 24 color lithographs that Chagall designed specifically for this volume, including a color pictorial cover. Although the images are sometimes difficult to identify without referring to the image captions at the rear of the text, this volume is both a unique presentation of the Hebrew Bible and a collection of striking and beautiful artwork by a modern master.

"Autograph Manuscript Signed ""Muhammad"" in text, 1 page, 8"" x 5"", [n.p., n.d., but c. 1964-early 1970s, being a page from a lecture he delivered on behalf of the Nation of Islam. The page bears two minor contemporary ink smudges, else fine condition.The page reads in full: ""with them, But the South is the blame for mistreating us the So Called Negroes, The Hon Elijah Muhammad is between life and death. And he have to say these things.""Ali attended his first Nation of Islam meeting in 1961 and soon became an intimate of Malcom X. In 1964 he formally joined the Nation, and its leader Elijah Muhammad anointed him Muhammad (one who is worthy of praise) Ali (fourth rightly guided caliph). Only a few weeks after he joined the Nation, Malcolm X broke to convert to mainstream Sunni, but Ali remained with the Nation (a move he cited as a major regret later in life). Citing his religious beliefs, he resisted the draft landing him in court.The subsequent legal cases and appeals kept him out of boxing for some time, and he toured the country lecturing on Islam. In 1975 Ali left the Nation himself, turning, like Malcolm X, to Sunni Islam (he became an adherent of Sufism in 2005)."

        Fiftieth Anniversary Report of the Harvard Class of 1910

      Cambridge, MA: The Cosmos Press, 1960. 8vo. 561pp. Original red cloth. With the stamps of the Harvard Club of New York, including their discarded stamp. A scarce T.S. Eliot item, his lengthy autobiographical entry occupying pages 133-136. Members of the class were asked to send in their current contact information, along with autobiographies summarizing the half century that had passed since their graduation. Eliot gives his address at Faber & Faber, his occupation as "Author and Publisher", lists his honorary degrees and awards and opens his text: "What the Secretary appears to be bent upon extracting from his wretched classmates is a full-length autobiography. If he really wants everything he says he wants he should have provided a good deal more paper, but I am glad he didn't. I don't see why I should again review my life 'since graduation': I did my best to oblige him in this respect 25 years ago, and that statement can stand, with two important qualifications-- I now prefer claret to burgundy, and I prefer Inspector Maigret to Arsène Lupin. So I shall begin with 1933: that is a good date for me, as that is the year in which I broke into Show Business..." Despite his playful/combative opening tone, Eliot goes on at length to list his many publications and accomplishments, and ends by saying that without his marriage to Valerie Fletcher "no achievement or honour could give me satisfaction at all." Another lengthy entry is provided by his classmate Walter Lippmann. Accompanied by the printed pamphlet of the speeches given by Lippmann and Clarence Little and a copy of the chairman's report. Gallup C642. Spine a bit faded and with a few soilmarks, a few bumps to board edges.

        Ruslan and Ludmila

      - Moscow: GIHL, 1960. Illustrated by Tatjana Mawrina. First edition thus, in Russian (pp. 150 ). A presentation copy for Rockwell and Sally Kent, signed and with a complimentary note from Lavrenty Yaroshenko, ‘Dear friends Mr. Rockwell Kent and Mrs. Sally Kent from actor [and] soloist Kirov Opera, [signed] Lavrentiy Yaroshenko (Farlaf and Ruslan). Leningrad, Yuny 13, 1962.’ From the library and with the bookplate of American artist Rockwell Kent, a theatre ticket to the performance enclosed. Folio (30 cm ) in faux vellum, story-telling cat from Kazan on front cover; lavishly decorated and illustrated with seven coloured plates and decorations on every page in a colourful informal style reminiscent of traditional illustrated Russian lubki, a kind of chapbook which portrayed traditional stories like the tale of Ruslan and Ludmila for appreciative if largely unlettered readers. Yaroshenko (1909- 1975) was, as he says, a celebrated principal singer (bass) with the Kirov, now once again called the Mariinsky Theatre. Tatjana Mawrina (1902- 2014) was a winner of the Hans Christian Andersen Award for illustrators of children’s books and the co-author of a book on early Russian icons. Rockwell Kent (1881- 1971), of course, along with many an artist and intellectual who flourished early in the twentieth century, was sympathetic to various reformist political movements and, in the aftermath of the second world war, supported efforts to bring a lasting peace. In the 1950’s Kent publicly supported rapproachement between the U.S. and the Soviet Union and for his efforts was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize in 1960, a fact which may partly explain the warmth of Yaroshenko’s note. A few spots to the covers, mild waving to heavy paper stock. A clean, bright, sound copy. From Kent’s library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Dieses Exemplar trägt die Nummer 78". - Exemplar Nr. 78/250 der Vorzugsausgabe, mit eigenhändiger Unterschrift des Verfassers im Band 1. - Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."
