        The Soft Machine

      Paris: Olympia Press. (1961). First. First edition. Wrappers. Small perforations to five interior pages, evidently from the printing process, otherwise fine in wrappers (with "New Franc" price on the rear wrap) in a lightly rubbed, else fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author to the actress Ruth Ford: "For Ruth Ford, All the best, William S. Burroughs." Ford, the Mississippi-born sister of surrealist author Charles Henri Ford, was a beautiful model and actress, first in Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre, and later in films and theater. Notably, she starred on Broadway in Jean Paul Sartre's No Exit in 1946, under the direction of John Huston (the last of five Broadway plays he directed). Her apartment in the Dakota became a salon for authors such as Tennessee Williams, Edward Albee, Terrence McNally, and Truman Capote. A chance encounter between Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents in her Manhattan living room led to their collaboration, with her Dakota-neighbor Leonard Bernstein, on West Side Story. Similarly, she brought together Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight to create the celebrated stories of Eloise, the little girl who lived at the Plaza.Ford is well known also for her long friendship with William Faulkner, which began with her dating his brother Dean in the early 1930s. Faulkner was openly smitten with Ford for many years. He wrote his experimental 1951 title Requiem for a Nun, a sequel to his early and controversial novel Sanctuary, with her in mind. He further declared, to the consternation of his agent and publisher, that it was her dramatic property (Requiem for a Nun was a mixture of stage play and novel). Stage production of the title stalled for years, partly because Faulkner's experimental drama did not lend itself to live theatre, and partly because the producers were unsure of Ford's suitability. Faulkner was adamant that it was her dramatic property, and in 1959 she adapted the play herself and starred in its London production opposite her second husband, Zachary Scott. Her stage version received enthusiastic reviews in both London and New York, but did not fare so well with audiences and closed after a short run on Broadway. Ford continued to act on both stage and screen well into the 1980s. She passed away in 2009 at the age of 98. .

        THE HOWARD COLLECTOR complete file 18 issues

      Pasadena TX: Glenn Lord - ( Summer 1961 - Autumn 1973) All issues published. The first regularly published REH fan publication printing a wealth of original material including: stories, fragments, letters, prose poems, etc. All issued in stapled wrappers. Some early issues were reprinted (piracies?) via offset and bound to resemble the first printings. I suspect issue #6 (Spring 1965) is a reprint. Issue #7 is represented by two copies: one most assuredly a reprint, the other being hurt with oversized paper covers tattered at edges, covers detached and split along spine. But for the noted exception all issues grade VG to FINE with a bit of the inevitable tanning to edges of wrappers. Quite difficult to assemble in a complete set.

        The Sculpture of Marino Marini [WITH ORIGINAL SIGNED LITHOGRAPH)

      Frederick A. Praeger (1961), New York - 1/60. Large quarto. XXIII, [1], 146pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over illustrated black cloth, with white lettering on spine. Original lithograph frontispiece by Marino Marini, signed by him in pencil on lower left margin. Eduard Trier, one of the foremost international experts on the art of sculpture, traces the evolution on the work of Marino Marini (1901-1980) from some sketches done in the early 1930s to his most mature statues and demonstrates his essential unity of style and purpose. The unity and the immense power of Marini's sculpture is clearly shown in Helmut Lederer's magnificent photographs which represent all the most important aspects of Marini's work and constitutes the core of this extremely valuable study. Translated from the German by Michael Bullock. Includes list of illustrations, biographical outline and selected bibliography. One of 60 copies with an original signed lithograph, of which this is No. 40. Dust-jacket with tiny chipping at head of spine and lower front corner. Price clipped on front flap. Two tiny dents on lower margin of binding. Minor age toning to outer edges of interior pages. Dust jacket in overall good, binding in good+, interior in good+ to very good, original lithograph and plates in very good condition. * Marino Marini (1901-1980) was one of the most celebrated Italian sculptors of the 20th century. He attended the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence in 1917. Although he never abandoned painting, Marini devoted himself primarily to sculpture from about 1922. From this time his work was influenced by Etruscan art and the sculpture of Arturo Martini. Marini succeeded Martini as professor at the Scuola d’Arte di Villa Reale in Monza, near Milan, in 1929, a position he retained until 1940. During this period, Marini traveled frequently to Paris, where he associated with Massimo Campigli, Giorgio de Chirico, Alberto Magnelli, and Filippo Tibertelli de Pisis. In 1936 he moved to Tenero-Locarno, in Ticino Canton, Switzerland; during the following few years the artist often visited Zürich and Basel, where he became a friend of Alberto Giacometti, Germaine Richier, and Fritz Wotruba. In 1936, he received the Prize of the Quadriennale of Rome. In 1938, he married Mercedes Pedrazzini. He accepted a professorship in sculpture at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, Milan, in 1940. In 1943, he went into exile in Switzerland, exhibiting in Basel, Bern, and Zurich. In 1946, the artist settled permanently in Milan. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Chinese Painting with the Original Paintings & Discourses on Chinese Art.

      Kao Ling-Mei,, Hong Kong: 1961 - A folio volume with full page color plates of one of the best known and most prolific Chinese artists of the twentieth century, known as Zhang Daqian, 1899 - 1983 (original name Zhang Yuan). Zhang Daqian's lotus paintings and landscapes are especially noteworthy. Zhang and his brother studied painting as children, and traveled to Japan to study textile dyeing techniques. Zhang studied traditional painting in Shanghai, and began to meticulously copy ancient masters' works. He later studied ancient Buddhist wall paintings, enriching his own understanding of religious imagery. Contents of this folio include: on the art of painting; on painting plum blossoms, orchids, chrysanthemums, bamboo, flowers & plants; flowers and plants in the Mo Ku style, peonies in the elaborate style; on landscapes; on copying old masters; snow scenes; on nature, feeling and attitude; paper and ink; brush and water; birds, fish, animals, humans, classical ladies; painting eyes; of inscriptions, seals and mounting. Over time, Zhang became a highly skilled forger; one of his forgeries was acquired by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1957. In a recent Museum exhibition, titled "Zhang Daqian Painter, Collector, Forger" (Dec. 2007 - Sept. 2008), Zhang is described as follows, "As a painter, he was known for his singular ability to mix traditional techniques and styles with contemporary ideas and currents. As a collector, he accumulated important examples from all genres of Chinese painting and left behind copious seals and inscriptions. As a forger, Zhang so mastered the art of deception that his fakes were purchased unwittingly by nearly every major art museum in the United States. Of particular interest is a master forgery acquired by the Museum in 1957 as an authentic work of the tenth century. The painting, which was allegedly a landscape by the Five Dynasties period master Guan Tong, is one of Zhang’s most ambitious forgeries and serves to illustrate both his skill and his audacity."Folio, 114pp, 74 plates. Blue cloth covers in pristine condition, traditional binding with title in Chinese on cream silk at front cover, gilt illustration of two figures at lower right, and red stamp. Housed in a gold and black patterned silk (slightly faded) fabric covered slipcase with title label laid down at front cover in English and at rear cover in Chinese; with loop and peg fasteners. The margin of the Chinese label at rear cover slightly torn at right side, not affecting text; some damp marks at margins only of inside flap of slipcase. OCLC: 20269190.

        Three Programs for Events Held at Yoko Ono's Chambers Street Apartment

      New York. 1961. Four mimeographed typescript sheets, printed rectos only. Quartos. Overall very good with two sheets bright and fresh but two faded and somewhat toned, all with various old folds. Three programs from the historic concerts and performance series organized by La Monte Young and held at Yoko Ono's Chamber Street apartment that featured many of the top artists of New York's avant-garde scene including John Cage, Dick Higgins, Walter DeMaria, Terry Riley, Jackson Mac Low, Robert Morris, Toshi Ichiyanagi, Jim Dine, and Ono. The series closely paralleled the European shows being produced by George Maciunas of his newly developing Fluxus movement, that itself was inspired by The Dadaist. The Chambers Street shows led Maciunas to invite Ono to join his fledgling group and helped coalesce the various artists that would become the core members of Fluxus.The first two sheets are for a two-night musical performance by Inchiyanagi on January 7 and 8, 1961 featuring various performers such as Young, Mac Low, Richard Maxfield, Simone Morris, David Tudor, and with a number dedicated to John Cage. The verso of the first sheet has several lines of pseudonymous verse in pencil that we suspect may be that of Mac Low. The second sheet, which we assume was handed out the second night and calls this "#2 in the series presented by La Monte Young," warns the audience "THE PURPOSE OF THIS SERIES IS NOT ENTERTAINMENT," and promotes the next event featuring Henry Flynt, whose program is also included here. That program, "#3" dated February 25 and 26, describes the event as "experimental concert Jazz, Flynt-music, or poetry [that] will be improvised" with accompaniment by Young, De Maria, Morris, and others. The fourth sheet (and third program) focuses on the poetry, music and theater work of Mac Low. Also held over two nights, April 8 and 9, 1961, the pieces are based on works composed between 1955 and 1961 and performed with help from Diane Wakowski, Robert Dunn, Shimon Tamari, Joan Kelly, John Perreault, and Iris Lezak.A wonderful collection of ephemera from a pivot moment in the development of Fluxus. .

        Retreat from Moscow: From Tolstoy's War and Peace. [Original John Groth Painting to be used in an Illustrated Edition of War & Peace].

      [Unpublished in this form: The original painting was never published as part of the 1961 Heinemann edition of War and Peace]. - Size of matted painting: 35 ¾ in. x 27 ¾ in.; size of metal frame: 40 in. x 32 ¼ in x 1 ¼ in. (thick). A John Groth painting of the Napoleonic Army's retreat from Moscow during the winter of 1812, to be used as an illustration in an edition of Tolstoy's War and Peace. The painting shows the army on foot or horse, retreating through the snow under a gray sky, with a figure of a long dead soldier in the foreground. From the collection of bookseller & publisher, William (Bill) Targ (1907-99), whose printed mailing label is on the back of the mounting board, and identifies the painting: William Targ 101 West 12th Street New York, N. Y. RETREAT FROM MOSCOW by John Groth (oil) Planned for inclusion in the Heinemann ed. of War & Peace—rejected for budgetary reasons. Bill Targ was an early and close friend of the artist John Groth, and an admirer of his work. Most of Groth's work intended for book illustrations were drawings or watercolors that were suited to his style of working; he produced few oil paintings for this purpose, and they are considered rare. The framer's label on the back, reads: Decor Arts. Inc. 225 west 14th Street New York, N. Y. The frame is black, matte finished metal, with original hanging wire present; gray canvas-type material covered matting board around the painting, white matting board backing with the Targ label, and the framer's label. If purchased in the original, glass-fronted frame, this item requires special packing and shipping. Can also be sold without the glass-fronted frame, but with matting, and original Targ label. Weight: 15 lbs. (framed); postage may be extra on this item.

        Franny and Zooey

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company. (1961). First. Uncorrected galleys. String-tied in unprinted gray wrappers with applied title label. Printed rectos only. Slight crease on the front wrap, modest age-toning, else near fine, with the title handwritten on the spine as "Franny and Zooy" [sic]. Laid in are a press release, a publicity statement to booksellers, and a seasonal pamphlet reviewing the book. The press release, on Little, Brown stationery, is most interesting as it details an August publication date (the book was eventually published in September) and also announces that the book would contain an introduction by Salinger (the little additional text that he reluctantly provided was used on the jacket flaps and there is no introduction within the book itself). Additionally, these galleys lack the dedication page added to the published book. By the late 1950s Salinger had become so disillusioned with the marketing practices of publishers that he broke all ties with his English publisher after they allowed Nine Stories to be published with a garish cover. With Little, Brown he stipulated that there would be no advance publicity for the book, that it would have simple and understated art design, and that Salinger himself would provide the jacket text. Rare -- we know of only a handful of other copies. .
