        Inaugural Addresses of the Presidents of the United States.

      Washington, DC: United States Government Printing Office,, 1961. From George Washington 1789 to John F. Kennedy 1961. Octavo (230 x 145 mm). Bound for presentation in full red calf, titles to spine gilt, double rule frame surrounding presidential device to front cover gilt, recipients initials to foot of front cover gilt, edges gilt, red marbled endpapers, red silk page marker. Housed in a burgundy quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Black and white portraits to head of chapters. Spine and board edges faded, an excellent copy. First edition, first printing. One of 80 copies specially bound for presentation by Jackie Kennedy, inscribed on the front binder's blank, "For David and Sissy - Jack was going to give you this for Christmas, please accept it now from me, with all my love and all the memories of the shining times we had with him. Jackie, December 1963". Additionally laid in is Jackie Kennedy's card in a hand addressed envelope. Presented a month following the assassination of John F. Kennedy on 22 November 1963, the recipients of this copy were David and Sylvia Ormsby Gore, close friends of the Kennedys. David Ormsby Gore had known John F. Kennedy since Kennedy's pre-war years in London. His appointment to the position of British Ambassador to the United States in May 1961 was primarily due to this friendship, which "strengthened rather than wilted under the strains of office and official intercourse ... buttressed by the fact that Ormsby Gore was also on close terms with Jacqueline Kennedy, as were the Kennedys with Lady Ormsby Gore" (ODNB). Ormsby Gore was, "almost as much an unofficial adviser to the president as an envoy of the British government ... His position was particularly influential during the Cuban missile crisis in October 1962" (ODNB). In Ormsby Gore's recollection of Kennedy, "you always felt, in his presence, that life was more worth living, was greater fun" (p. 196). Ormsby Gore remained the British Ambassador into Lyndon Johnson's presidency, returning to England in the spring of 1965. Ormsby Gore stayed close with Jackie Kennedy, and later proposed to her in 1968, having been widowed himself the previous year; she turned him down stating, "If ever I can find some healing and some comfort — it has to be with somebody who is not part of all my world of past and pain". Two passages of Kennedy's inaugural address, pp. 267-270, are highlighted in pencil to the margins by Lord Harlech.

        Textiles

      Artists' book in three parts. Textiles 1 : clamshell box (310 x 270 mm) bound in linen, satin lined, with 64 loose etchings exploring the textural qualities of fabric, each signed and numbered in the series. The etchings are miniature and intimate, measuring a mere 58 x 30mm each on paper 288 x 248 mm, a pair of silk gloves is included to finish this element of the set. Textiles 2 : clamshell box (150 x 150 mm) bound in linen, paper lined, with 57 etchings bound in a long concertina. The etchings are similarly miniature, and continue to explore the theme, with a contrasting visual experience of the movement and folds of the concertina. Textiles 3 : linen bound book (105 x 132 mm), with 62 etchings which finish the series in the same style. In this exquisite book the artist explores the textural qualities of something as simple as the many forms of fabric that she remembered from her childhood, demonstrating an adept artistic talent in creating fine detail and organic movement in the extensive series of 183 etchings which explores her subject. The sheer scale of this exercise is enormous, despite the small scale of the etchings, but as a finished work presents aunique artistic insight into the dimension and texture of different fabrics captured through this two-dimensional matrix. Marina Charapanovskaia was born in Krasnoyarsk in Eastern Siberia in 1961, and grew up in Vorkuta in the Komi Republic, far northern Russia. She studied art at the People's University, Moscow 1982 - 1984 and spent the rest of the decade working in design for government departments, including designing powerful Soviet propoganda posters. Upon the breakup of the Soviet Union, Charapanovskaia emigrated to Melbourne where her grandmother had been living since the 1960s. She returned to study and completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts (Printmaking) at the Victorian College of the Arts (Melbourne University). Since then she has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, and won awards from the Kingston City Arts Centre and National Gallery Women's Association. A fine contemporary artists' book in three parts, from a migrant to Australia drawing upon her memories of childhood.

        A Burnt-Out Case

      London: Heinemann, 1961. First edition of this Greene novel set in a leproserie on the upper reaches of a tributary of the Congo River in Africa. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Graham Greene on the title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Dust jacket design by Lacey Everett. Greene dedicated A Burnt-Out Case to Docteur Michel Lechat, a medical doctor at a leper colony in Yonda in Africa (one of a number of such colonies Greene had visited in the Congo and the Cameroons, which had inspired his novel). In his dedication to Lechat, Greene writes: "Doctor Colin has borrowed from you his experience of leprosy and nothing else. Doctor Colin's leproserie is not your leproserie.... From the fathers of your Mission I have stolen the Superior's cheroots--that is all, and from your Bishop the boat that he was so generous as to lend me for a journey up the Ruki." In reference to the characters in the novel, Greene writes: "It would be a waste of time for anyone to try to identify Querry, the Ryckers, Parkinson, Father Thomas--they are formed from the floatsum of thirty years as a novelist." Commenting on his literary intentions in the work, Greene wrote that it was, "an attempt to give dramatic expression to various types of belief, half-belief, and non-belief, in the kind of setting, removed from world-politics and house-hold-preoccupations, where such differences are felt acutely and find expression." Drawing a comparison between a leper-colony doctor's work and that of a novelist, Greene adds: "A doctor is not immune from 'the long despair of doing nothing well", the same "cafard that hangs around a writer's life."

        Inaugural Address.

      [Washington, DC: United States Government Publishing Office,], 1961. Octavo. Original cream cloth, gilt-lettered spine, presidential seal gilt to front board. In the original matching slipcase. With a small wire-stitched booklet containing Kennedy's State of the Union Message, 30 January 1961, laid in. Title page printed in blue and black, dated printed in blue, presidential seal and calligraphic initial gilt. The faintest of markings to boards, faint toning to pastedowns from adhesive used in binding. A superb copy. First edition, presentation copy, of one of the most famous speeches of the 20th century, inscribed by Kennedy "To Mary and Ray Gallagher, with warm regards from their friend! John Kennedy" on the front free endpaper; one of an unknown number of copies printed for private distribution among Kennedy's friends and associates. With an autograph letter signed by John Connally as chairman of the Texas Democratic Executive Committee, presenting Mary Gallagher with this "specially prepared, embossed copy of this inspiring message", the letter dated 17 February 1961 and also enclosing a copy of Kennedy's first State of the Union Message, which is laid in; also included is a detailed letter of authenticity, signed by Gallagher. An extraordinarily intimate presidential association copy. Mary Gallagher (née Barelli) was sworn in as Kennedy's senatorial aide in 1953, and served as Jackie Kennedy's personal secretary from 1956 to 1964, when Kennedy left Washington for Manhattan. Connally was elected governor of Texas in 1963, and was sitting in front of Kennedy in the presidential car at the moment of his assassination, and was himself seriously wounded by the same bullet that killed JFK. Gallagher was riding a few cars behind, and in her 1969 memoir, My Life with Jacqueline Kennedy, recalled how she had waited outside the operating theatre with the first lady, who had refused to change out of her blood-soaked clothes. Gallagher's memoir was viewed by many as an often scurrilous piece of self-justification, a reviewer for the Chicago Tribune remarking that "The author may not be aware of it but the reader comes away convinced she was herself in love with JFK and resentful of Jacqueline … She was outrageously underpaid, undoubtedly overworked, and obviously a competent and efficient secretary. What is incredible is that she suffered all this for eleven years without exercising the logical option of quitting". Details included Jackie's exceptional stinginess toward others, in contrast to the extravagance of her personal expenditure, which JFK allegedly requested Gallagher to monitor on his behalf. Kennedy's inaugural address is considered "one of the finest speeches in American history. By invoking the American dream and extending its promise to the rest of the world, Kennedy's speech was an inspirational call to action that resonates even today … The power of Kennedy's inaugural speech lies in its brevity and lyrical succinctness — qualities common among Wilson's, Lincoln's and Churchill's most remembered speeches. Like the times reflected in these previous speeches, the late 1950s and early 1960s were fraught with crisis. The cold war had been escalating since the mid-1940s, and the US civil rights movement was reaching a fever pitch. Marked by an idealistic tone that elevated the speech above pessimistic Cold War rhetoric, Kennedy's inaugural address relied on the hope and optimism of a new generation" (Gale, A Study Guide for John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address, pp. 1-2). It is best remembered for the line, "Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country". Judging by the number of copies extant it would appear that no more than 100 were printed.

He is best known for his total design concept for the Sweets Catalog Service and lesser known for introducing the parenthesis as a way to typographically distinguish the area code from the rest of a phone number. He was hugely influential in the world of modern graphic design. Text and design by Ladislav Sutnar; production supervised by Sutnar; preface by Mildred Constantine.
