        The Exterminator

      San Francisco, CA: The Auerhahn Press, 1960. First Edition. Softcover. Very Fine. "William Burroughs...in this his latest work has thrown away all traces of a polite regard for the sacred cows of narrative fiction...Pieces of his earlier writing, magazine and newspaper articles, headlines and catch-phrases of the day are cut up, scrambled and thrown at the reader, or rather, sprayed at him in the same way a machinegun sprays its target. Almost nothing remains in a narrative context; everything is atomized and forced to exist in an agonized truce...Brion Gysin contributed the poems and calligraphs which finally "rub out the word"." (from back cover) A first edition/ first printing of the early collaboration between William S. Burroughs, foremost Beat-&-Beyond literary innovator; & artist-writer Brion Gysin, a key associate who first inspired WSB with the cut-up method. As noted in colophon, this exquisitely crafted production "...was designed and printed by Dave L. Haselwood and James F. McIlroy at the Auerhahn Press, 1334 Franklin, San Francisco, California." One of approximately 1000 copies per Maynard & Miles (A4a, pgs. 21-22). This copy is inscribed & signed by WSB on the title page: "For Don Kaufmann/ (signed) William Burroughs." Donald L. Kaufmann (1927-2015) was an acclaimed, long-time professor of English at the University of Southern Florida & a devoted collector, particularly of Norman Mailer, about whom he wrote several noted studies. A top-tier, canonical WSB-Gysin rarity, with significant association & provenance. In exceptionally very fine condition with only mildest level of rubbing & scratching at front, back covers & spine; tiniest bumps at corners & edges of same; very small area of smudging at & near lower right edge of front cover; slightest vertical bend outward toward front cover at & near spine. Interior very fine with only miniscule bump-bends at corners of page leaves; otherwise substantially mint as issued. Inscribed & Signed by William S. Burroughs to Donald L. Kaufmann.

        Plochere Color System. A Guide to Color and Color Harmony. To be used in Conjunction with the 1248 Color Tone Cards plus 200 Gray tones Included in this Set

      Gladys and Gustave Plochere, Los Angeles 1960 - With spiral-bound publication in compartment. Light blue boxBlue leatherette box (4 1/2 x 18 x 6 1/2") with gilt lettering on cover, imitation leather handle, draw bolt latches and 1448 Color Tone Cards (3 x 5") with 116pp. spiral-bound guide with white lettering on cover warps, and Light Reflectance Guide housed in compartment of box. The book, 1992 revised edition by Eric Lutz, contains an introduction, abstracts on color terms, hue designation, color groupings, color harmonies, pigments, color names and a 24-hue color circle on card stock and an index of color names at rear. "The instructive chapters have been condensed and simplified, and the color information has been reformatted. Hue paint and to the advent of computerized color matching, mixing formulas for the colors in the Plochere Color System have also been eliminated? While the actual colors in the system have not been changed in any way, slight adjustments have been made to the hue designations, to the positioning of the hues on the color circle, and to the resultant color harmonies. The current color circle is no longer based directly on the Ostwald circle. While it retains some of the characteristics of the Ostwald arrangement (for example, a higher proportion of greens), it corresponds more closely with the conventional tripartite arrangement of yellow, magenta, and cyan." The 1448 Color Tone Cards in leatherette box are compartmentalized by dividers with printed numbers 1-1248 and G1-200 for additional 200 grays. All color cards with stamped numbers on verso. Complete. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Poems by John Ashbery. Prints by Joan Mitchell [with:] Permanently by Kenneth Koch. Prints by Alfred Leslie [with:] Odes by Frank O'Hara. Prints by Michael Goldberg [with:] Salute by James Schuyler. Prints by Grace Hartigan

      First edition. One of 200 numbered copies signed by the authors and the artists from a total edition of 225 (the 25 contributors' copies were not signed). Each volume includes five original color prints on ivory wove handmade Hahnemühle paper made directly on the screens by the individual artists. "Abstract expressionist artists . . . were not particularly involved with printmaking or encouraged to create artists' books. . . . Another significant and undervalued exception . . . are four oversize books by the New York School of poets, each paired with large, colorful screen-prints by four second-generation abstract expressionist artists. . . . Each bound volume in the untitled boxed set contains five screen-prints, including the title page and covers. This is Hartigan's only book illustrated with original prints." "These four volumes - The Poems, Permanently, Salute, and Odes - were a collaboration between four leading artists of the second-generation of abstract expressionist painters and four of their poet friends of the New York School. The screen print medium that was chosen was the perfect vehicle to convey painterly gesture and saturated color. Along with 21 Etchings and Poems (1960) published by the Morris Gallery, N.Y., these four volumes published by the Tiber Press were the only distinguished artists' books containing abstract expressionist works created during the 1950s." - Robert Flynn Johnson, Artists' Books in the Modern Era 1870-2000.

        THE AFRICAN QUEEN -- UNIQUE ORIGINAL ARTWORK BY JAMES AVATI FOR THE 1960 BANTAM PAPERBACK, THE AFRICAN QUEEN, BY C. S. FORESTER.

      1960 - [Avati, James] [Forester, C. S.] UNIQUE ORIGINAL ARTWORK BY JAMES AVATI FOR THE 1960 BANTAM PAPERBACK, THE AFRICAN QUEEN, BY C. S. FORESTER. One of the few extant Avati paintings illustrating major works by major 20th century authors still available to commerce. 14 x 12 inches, executed in oil on board-mounted canvas, colors still bright and vivid, in strikingly fresh condition. Museum quality framed-and-matted to a dimension of 16 x 14 inches. Avati's original painting for the first paperback version of Salinger's CATCHER IN THE RYE (1953) recently sold for $21,510.00 at auction (October, 2010). His original painting for the first paperback version (1952) of Christopher Isherwood's GOODBYE TO BERLIN (auctioned July 2009) fetched $26,290.00. James Avati (1912-2005) was often called "The Rembrandt" of 1940s and 1950s paperback illustration. He popularized authors such as William Faulkner for the average reader with alluring cover art which sported extraordinary emotional impact. His brilliance in capturing human feeling: tension or pain, suggestiveness or lust, avarice or suspicion, compassion or devotion was unrivaled during the golden age of paperback illustration. He created a visual narrative that brought characters' tragedies and yearnings to life with a tough-minded gritty realism without any compromising sentimentality. In the primary reference book "The Paperback Art Of James Avati" (Piet Schreuders & Kenneth Fulton, 2005), this painting is illustrated on p. 160. The distinction of this painting may be obvious to those familiar with Avati's work: the lush jungle green landscape which surrounds the central figures is an unusually dynamic departure for Avati and his decision to interpret the novel's most iconic image, Charlie and Rose pulling the celebrated "African Queen" through the twisted, overwhelming jungle vines of the Ulanga River in German East Africa in an attempt to outfox the World War One German Imperial Forces, has produced something very special. John Huston's film version starring Humphrey Bogart (in his only Oscar-winning role) and Katharine Hepburn is one of the American Film Institute's 100 best films ever made. The novel itself is today, along with the Horatio Hornblower series, the best known and best loved of C. S. Forester's (1899-1966) lifetime achievement of more than fifty works of fiction. James Avati produced this painting for Bantam Books #A2111 in August of 1960. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
