Recipient of the Nobel Prize (1913) for literature, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was born in an affluent Bengali family. He was a versatile genius and developed an acute sensibility towards various art forms, literature, poetry, dance and music. Tagore's journey as a painter began in his late sixties as an extension to his poetry. Though he had hardly any formal training in art, he developed a highly imaginative and spontaneous visual vocabulary, enhanced by a sound understanding of the visual practices of modern western art and primitivism. His first images emerged from revision marks on his manuscripts that he distorted into animal shapes - slightly crude renderings of fantastical animals. On his birth centenary of in 1961, the Indian government--at the personal initiative of its prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, who had known and revered Tagore in the 1930s commissioned a portfolio of collotype reproductions of some of Tagore's more than 2,000 paintings and drawings. They were printed by the renowned Ganymed Press. So fine was the quality that when the collotype reproductions were exhibited at the Commonwealth Institute in London, some visitors took them for the original works. Tagore said his paintings did not contain "any interpretation of an idea or representation of fact". This might be true for the animal images and the landscapes, but can hardly be said to be true for his studies of veiled women. The Ganymed Press were Collotype printers, in London between 1947 and 1963. The firm owed its origins to Ganymed Graphische Anstalt of Berlin, founded in the early years of the 20th century by Bruno Deja, a printer, and the art historian Julius Meier-Graefe. The Berlin works was re-established after wartime bombing with the help of the British publishing firm Lund Humphries and the New Statesman newspaper; Deja, in turn, advised the London firm set up by Lund Humphries and the New Statesman and provided trained craftsmen. The firm was run by Bernhard Baer (1905-83) and his wife Anne. Baer presented a set of these collotypes to the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1961. A fine set with a couple of spots to the margins on one or two of the collotypes.

        Incredible photo of President Kennedy with Ernie Davis!

      New York, 1961. 10" x 8". "Glossy black and white photo, 10"" x 8"", depicting Ernie Davis, and President John Kennedy, with two others from the Syracuse Football team. Folds at top right and bottom left corners, otherwise near fine condition.A heartwarming photo taken when JFK met with Ernie Davis when he was awarded the Heisman trophy. Davis had become the first black athlete to be awarded the Heisman Trophy (the highest individual honor in collegiate football) who also won the Walter Camp Memorial Trophy following his 1961 senior-year season at Syracuse University. President John Kennedy had followed Davis' career and requested to meet him while he was in New York to receive the trophy. Kennedy sent a telegram, reading:Seldom has an athlete been more deserving of such a tribute. Your high standards of performance on the field and off the field, reflect the finest qualities of competition, sportsmanship and citizenship. The nation has bestowed upon you its highest awards for your athletic achievements. It's a privilege for me to address you tonight as an outstanding American, and as a worthy example of our youth. I salute you.Both men were perceived as engines of American hope and vigor. It was a monumental period in our history with racial tensions in the forefront.. ""He was the star, but he was black. You're the greatest cat, but you're inferior. On one level, you're the greatest; the other level, you can't eat at a restaurant.""And in incredible irony, both men, in a manner beyond imagination to those who watched them shake hands, would be gone within two years: Davis would die of leukemia, while Kennedy would be shot to death in Dallas.An absolutely precious photo depicting two men whose legacy stood for hope and change."

        Death Chant

      np, 1961. Np: 1964. Offset lithograph on glassine in two sections, one 7 1/2 x 8", and one 4 x 8". . A bass clef score with notes. Signed and dated by Young at a later date (1973?), who has added a copyright date of 1964. Provenance: from the collection of Jackson Mac Low via the trade. The score for this piece, that was composed on the occasion of the death of Jackson Mac Low and Iris Lezak's child in 1961. This sheet was signed as a later date, with the copyright added, perhaps for publication. The piece is a landmark in the history of minimalism, the low tones reminiscent of Tibetan chant. As Potter points out , this was the only early period Young piece to use staff notation aside from Composition 1969 #7, and was the last fully notated work until Chronos Kristalla in 1990. We believe that this was printed for inclusion in the first Fluxus Box, though we've not compared copies physically. The copy pictured on the Fondazione Bonnotto website shows a third piece of glassine which includes three more bars of notation, not included here, though this copy doesn't bear the hole punches that the FB copy shows. Perhaps incomplete, but rare; intriguing with the signature and copyright. Very good with some moderate toning to the glassine.

Bousquet résumait ainsi ses travaux en Islamologie (dans les mélanges qui lui furent consacrés dans les Cahiers Pareto en 1965) : "Très en gros, on pourrait dire à ce sujet que je suis parti intellectuellement de la Loi rituelle, morale et juridique de l'Islâm (fiqh) et ai essayé de voir dans quelle mesure cette étrange casuistique (dont j'ai traduit de nombreux textes et dont j'ai exposé les règles dans divers ouvrages) est appliquée, ou non, dans les sociétés musulmanes d'Afrique du Nord surtout (mais également en Indonésie). En particulier, mon attention s'est portée sur le rituel ('ibâdates) presque toujours systématiquement négligé par mes prédécesseurs". Langue: Français [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Blofeld Trilogy, comprising] Thunderball; [with] On Her Majesty's Secret Service; [and] You Only Live Twice

      Jonathan Cape [through 1964], London 1961 - Three fine first impressions, First Issue or First State, of the author's eighth, tenth, and eleventh novels (Blofeld is absent from the ninth, The Spy Who Loved Me) in the iconic, correct-issue dust jackets illustrated by Richard Chopping. Uniformly bound octavos in publisher's dark brown Type C cloth stamped with gold or silver foil. 253,[1]; 288; 255,[1]pp. Thunderball: Binding A (spine stamped with gold foil). Skeletal hand motif blind-stamped on upper board. Fine (very light, faint speckling to fore-edge and one page, otherwise crisp, clean, apparently unread); Near Fine or better price-clipped jacket (brief edge-wear). Gilbert A9a(1.1). OHMSS: Binding A. Upper board with white serpentine ski track stamped on upper board. About Fine (partially erased manuscript ex libris to head of front free end paper) and only lightly read; about Fine jacket (lightly faded red lettering to spine panel, perimeter of back panel slightly toned), priced 16s. Gilbert A11a(1.1). YOLT: Binding A. Seven Japanese characters stamped vertically in gilt to upper board, bamboo-patterned end papers. Fine, unmarked and unblemished throughout, probably unread; Fine jacket, without toning or fading, priced 16s. Gilbert A12a(1.1). Withal, a handsome, collectible set. Perhaps the most emotionally intense of Ian Fleming's thrillers, these three novels feature Bond's archenemy: the supervillain and criminal mastermind with aspirations of world domination, Ernst Stavro Blofeld. In Thunderball, Fleming sketches Blofeld early life, first as Nazi collaborator, then on the Allied side before disappearing in South America and founding Spectre, the global criminal syndicate and terrorist organization that threatens to destabilize the world with two hijacked atomic bombs. In On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Blofeld goes underground in Switzerland, in the guise of the Comte Balthazar de Bleuchamp, but Bond tracks the Spectre chief to his stronghold in the Alps and defeats his biological warfare scheme to destroy Britain's agricultural economy. Blofeld retaliates, killing Bond's new wife, Contessa Teresa "Tracy" di Vicenzo, and throwing Bond into a tailspin that nearly destroys him before he exacts his revenge in You Only Live Twice.

        Günter Haese Verzeichnis der Skulpturen [Gebundene Ausgabe] Herwig Guratzsch Jens Ch Jensen Stiftung Schleswig-Holsteinische Landesmeseen Schloss Gottorf Die ersten Plastiken Günter Haeses entstanden

      Die ersten Plastiken Günter Haeses entstanden ab 1961/62 in seinem Atelier, und bereits 1964 nahm er mit drei seiner filigranen Drahtskulpturen an der documenta III. teil. Sie überzeugten und begeisterten Fachwelt und Besucher durch ihre poetische Ausstrahlung und perfekt-unperfekte Machart, die kunstvoll die Balance hielt zwischen professioneller Präzision und einer gewollt linkisch anmutenden Unmittelbarkeit in Konstruktion und Gesamterscheinung. Günter Haeses ungewöhnliche Spielart der Plastik, die das vorliegende Verzeichnis seiner Skulpturen erstmals in seiner ganzen Breite präsentiert, entstand am Ende des Informel und den letzten Wirkungen dieses Stils. Von diesen Voraussetzungen und Grundlagen aus entwickelte und vertiefte er sein Werk über nun fast vierzig Jahre hin kontinuierlich, mit anhaltender Intensität und artistischer Perfektion. Haeses Bilddenken ging dabei stets von stereometrischen Grundvorstellungen ausKubus, Quader, Kugel und Zylinder bestimmen jeweils die Großform, hinzu kommen deren Abwandlungen beziehungsweise deren Reduktionen wie Kugelhalbschalen, Glockenkörper, Zylinderscheiben, Hauben, dazu konvexe oder konkave Aus- oder Einbuchtungen. Diesen Großformen zugeordnet sind plastische Kleinelemente wie Uhrteile, Spiralfeder Autor: Günter Haese geboren 1924 in Kiel. 1950-1957 Besuch der Staatlichen Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf.

        Projekt: schwarze Brille. - Typoskript mit handschriftlichen Ergänzungen und 3 Originalfotografien, rückseitig handschriftlich bezeichnet.

      1960-1961. - 19 x 19,5 cm. Brief und 13,5 x 18 cm. Fotos. Zusammen 4 Teile. Zentrales Objekt im Schaffen von Daniel Spoerri, das sein Werk massgeblich prägte. Im Vorwort der "Anekdoten zu einer Topographie des Zufalls" bezieht sich der Künstler auf dieses Objekt: "Vielleicht trägt es zum Verständnis meines Versuches bei, wenn ich hinzufüge, dass das Bedürfnis, Gegenstände nur zu beschreiben und in der Erinnerung nachzuzeichnen - anstatt sie zu handhaben und zu sammeln -, mir erst wichtig wurde, als ich eine Brille konstruiert hatte, deren Gläser mit Nadeln besetzt waren." (S. 5) Die Brille war ein Teil der Brillensammlung, die Spoerri zwischen 1961 und 1963 in Kopenhagen, Paris und Milano ausstellte. 1963 wurde die Sammlung in der Fluxuspublikation "L'optique moderne, Collection de Lunettes, prensenté (sic!) par Daniel Spoerri, avec en regard, d'inutiles notules par François Dufrêne" publiziert. Das hier abgebildete Original wurde, laut dem Vorwort von Emmett Williams in der "Topographie" 1964 in New York zerstört. - Der maschinengeschriebene Text erklärt die Absicht des Objektes, "meine bilder anstatt sie wie bisher zu fixieren, möglichst genau zu beschreiben, um die gegenstände von der fantasie des lesers abhängig zu machen". Der Text, auf vorgedrucktem Briefpapier Spoerris mit der Adresse "24 rue mouffetard" und als Kopfzeile "concerne: exposition mouvement au stedelijk museum amsterdam et moderna museet stockholm", die aber schon im Frühling 1961 stattfand, und bei der Spoerri mit Pontus Hulten als Kurator wirkte. Auf Grund des Briefpapiers kann angenommen werden, dass die Datierung "November 1961" stimmt. - Die drei Fotografien rückseitig handschriftlich bezeichnet und mit dem Titel "Schwarze Brille" versehen.

        The Archive of a Champion Drag Racer

      N.p.: Various locations, `, c. 1961-1975. Photographs uniformly near fine to fine; working notes and other ephemeral material very good to near fine.. Extensive archive of photographs and drag racing ephemera, all of which belonged to and documents the work of Jan Riedel. Contents include 252 loose photographs (143 color, 109 black and white: 232 snapshots, 20 enlargements), 30 film negatives, 20 pencil and ink drawings of various sizes, approximately 200 racing time slips and certificates, 150 advertising and event stickers, approximately 80 invoices, 40 ticket stubs and participant passes, and 8 NHRA Rule Booklets. The material foremost documents several design iterations of "Frustration", Riedel's drag race car, as well as the actual races, most notably at the 1964 NHRA Nationals held at Indianapolis Raceway Park. The archive demonstrates the unique process of engineering, graphic artistry, and personal self-invention that created the many iterations of Jan Riedel's "Frustration" drag race car. In the endless modifications, tweaks, and improvements, drag racing epitomizes the ingenious, and competitive individuality that fueled drag racing, especially in the postwar era. The drawings and photographs especially document a personal view of this distinctly American subculture.

        Rare legendary Moshe Dayan handwritten article regarding the 5th Israeli Parliament elections of 1961. Dayan expresses his views regarding the upcoming elections and analyzes the future odds and various scenarios concerning the parties that will participate in the future government. "I won't be mistaking if I said that the intention is to make a minority become a majority and the majority to become a minority . . ."

      1961. "In part, the letter reads, ""The elections coming on august 15th were designed for the election of a Knesset and formation of a Government, which will run the state in the next 4 years . . . The corner stone for these declarations was placed before the announcement of the dissolving of the Knesset. When ""Mapam"" and . . . and following them the Progressives announced that they will not seat in a government headed by David Ben Gurion they did not say whether it was a temporary sanction or a lifetime ban, but it was obviously refreshing moment in our democratic way of life, not the electors are the ones who determine the elected representatives, the . . . do. Meaning, those who elected Bentov Ben-Aharon and Rozen, those who did not see Ben Gurion as their representative, they are the ones who have right to decide who stands at the head of ""MAPAY"" (Labor party) and who praise the current election system . . . This coalition gave us three constructive achievements, a boycott on Ben Gurion as prime minister, premature elections and calling the Knesset for emergency gatherings to make it a stage for campaign speeches but this new-born coalition is still at its prime and its future is ahead of it . . . The labor party's candidate list and candidate order for the 5th Knesset hasn't changed, except for Lavon and Rothenstien, since the last elections . . . Then came the next stage, its subjects are the key people in this coalition . . . declare that they wont sit in a government in which the Labor party is the majority, while the labor party is a minority in the Knesset . . . what is the true meaning of this statement? Does the Labor party, having majority in the government, deprive the representatives of the other parties and by that transforming from minority to majority? In this Knesset the Labor party has 54 representatives (including the Arab parties) . . . by which system will the next government be elected? Will the parties in the coalition no see themselves as representatives of the public, which are privileged and obligated to serve in the government in accordance to the number of MPs the have? I'm afraid . . . I wont be mistaking if I said that the intention is to make a minority become a majority and the majority to become a minority. Meaning for example, if in the next Knesset will be comprised of the same people and also the same coalition will be formed."" In 1961 a letter was published with 36 more Rabbis adding their signatures to the previous list. They stated: ""May nobody be a part of Israel, Kenesset, or elections."" Various Rabbis, including many Sephardic leaders (not only Ashkenas, but all united Jews) have restated the sin that one should stay far from Israel, Kenesset and elections. This declaration, to step back as much as possible from Kenesset and their elections, was accepted by hundreds of thousands of Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel. They have received support from hundreds of thousands of Jews from all over the world that feel the same pain that the Zionists have caused Hashem-God, the Torah, and the Jews."
