        Revolutionary Road

      Boston: Little Brown. (1961). His influential first novel, made into a well-received film almost fifty years after the book's publication. Inscribed by the author prior to publication, to Paul Cubeta, assistant director of Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, (which Yates attended in 1960 and again in 1962, where he had a legendary mental breakdown): "For Paul Cubeta - who makes everything go and keeps everything quiet. With more gratitude than he can possibly use and more respect than he will ever believe./ Dick Yates/ 8/30/61." A heartfelt association copy of one of the most acclaimed first novels of its era. Yates went on to teach at the Iowa Writers Workshop; later, in New Hampshire, he was effectively the "dean" of New England writers -- a model and mentor to John Irving, Andre Dubus, and others. Foxing and staining to page edges, otherwise a near fine copy in a very good dust jacket with one edge chip and some blended staining to the spine. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine.

        Six months after he leaves the Office of Vice President, Richard Nixon tells financier Jack Dreyfus "I am enclosing my check for $40,000 to Dreyfus and Co. for the purpose of opening my first brokerage account … I know there are risks involved investing in stocks …"

      [Los Angeles, California], July 17, 1961. 7.25" x 10.5". "Typed Letter Signed ""Dick,"" 1 page, 7.25"" x 10.5"". [Los Angeles], July 17, 1961. On stationery engraved at top center ""Richard Nixon."" With original postmarked envelope, name and Los Angeles address on back flap marked ""PERSONAL"" on envelope. To Jack Dreyfus, Dreyfus and Company, Two Broadway, New York City. Fine condition.In part, ""I am enclosing my check for $40,000 to Dreyfus and Co. for the purpose of opening my first brokerage account. In accordance with our discussions, I would like you to apply whatever portion of this amount is required to purchase a four year call on 1000 shares of Poloroid stock … I have no knowledge whatever of the mechanics of the stock market since my capital position has been such in public life that I have not been able to make any investments in stocks … I know there are risks involved investing in stocks…"" Read the entire in the image above.Financier Jack Dreyfus (1913-2009) was the founder of the Dreyfus Fund. In 1964, Life magazine called him the “Maverick Wizard Behind the Wall Street Lion,” in reference to the emblem of his fund and its aggressive marketing. Dreyfus, it said, was “the most singular and effective personality to appear in Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch.” His paternal grandfather was a first cousin of Alfred Dreyfus, the protagonist of the late 19th-century anti-Semitic scandal known as the Dreyfus Affair. Dreyfus sold his mutual fund company in 1970 and established the Dreyfus Health Foundation to pursue other medical applications for Dilantin which had cured his depression in the 1960s. In 2000, Dreyfus said that an account in The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon by Anthony Summers (New York: Viking, 2000) that he gave Dilantin to Richard Nixon in 1968 was correct. Dreyfus said he gave Nixon a bottle of 1,000 capsules of 100 milligrams each ''when his mood wasn't too good,'' and later gave him another bottle of 1,000 capsules."

        François Berthoud Facsimile..

      4, 40 Bl., zahlr. farb. blattgrosse Abb., Kart., Tadell Text engl. Vorzugsausgabe mit signiertem und num. Tiegeldruck der Druckerei Hürlimann. Text von Holly Brubach.- Der Schweizer François Berthoud zählt zu den herausragendsten Modeillustratoren der Gegenwart. 1961 geboren und an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Lausanne ausgebildet, entwickelte er früh eine unverkennbare Handschrift in der grafischen Umsetzung und Illustration von Kleidern, Schuhen, Taschen, Parfums und Accessoires. Seine expressiven, hochästhetischen Linolschnitte, Tropfenbilder und Computergrafiken begleiten unzählige Modekampagnen - von Yves Saint Laurent, über Bulgari bis zu Sonia Rykiel. Dabei ergänzen sich das dargestellte Objekt und Berthouds visuelle Interpretation davon zu einem atmosphärischen Gesamtwerk, das die Wahrnehmung und den Markterfolg eines Produktes wesentlich mitprägt. In dieser ersten umfassenden Ausstellung sind hunderte Originale, Skizzen und Arbeitsproben zu entdecken, aber auch ein filmisches Porträt, das seine Werkprozesse aufzeigt. Dabei fasziniert insbesondere der Einsatz analoger und digitaler Techniken, die sich gegenseitig befruchten und zu meisterhaften Resultaten führen.

        Jacqueline Kennedy Signed White House Print.

      1961 - White House photographic print taken in 1961 by White House photographer Cecil Stoughton. Boldly signed by Jacqueline Kennedy at the lower left. Stoughton took multiple photos in front of the White House fountains on the South Lawn when developing the 1961 Christmas Print. The final Christmas print, which showed more ducks positioned closer to the photographer, is derived from a different photograph taken moments before or after this mock-up. Here, the ducks are positioned on the far side of the pool and the camera was positioned at a slightly different angle than that used for the final Christmas Print. Matted and framed with a full length printed portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy after a painting. The entire piece measures 20.5 inches by 31 inches. Rare and desirable. When John F. Kennedy was sworn in as president on January 20, 1961, 31-year-old Jacqueline Kennedy became the third youngest First Lady in American history. As a presidential couple, the Kennedys differed from the Eisenhowers by their relative youth and their relationship with the media. Historian Gil Troy has noted that in particular, they "emphasized vague appearances rather than specific accomplishments or passionate commitments" and therefore fit in well in the early 1960s' "cool, TV-oriented culture". The discussion on Kennedy's fashion choices continued during her years in the White House, and she became a trendsetter, hiring American designer Oleg Cassini to design her wardrobe. She was the first First Lady to hire a press secretary, Pamela Turnure, and carefully managed her contact with the media, usually shying away from making public statements, and strictly controlling the extent to which her children were photographed. Portrayed by the media as the ideal woman, academic Maurine Beasley has stated that Kennedy "created an unrealistic media expectation for first ladies that would challenge her successors." Nevertheless, by attracting worldwide positive public attention, the First Lady gained allies for the White House and international support for the Kennedy administration and its Cold War policies. Although Kennedy stated that her priority as a First Lady was to take care of the President and their children, she also dedicated her time to the promotion of American arts and preservation of its history. Her main contribution was the restoration of the White House, but she also furthered the cause by hosting social events that brought together elite figures from politics and the arts. One of her unrealized goals was to found a Department of the Arts, but she did contribute to the establishment of the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment of the Humanities, established during Johnson's tenure.

        Typed Letter Signed about Noel Coward

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A brief typed letter signed from the great composer and lyricist to Albert "Doc" Sirmay, head of the music publisher Chappell and a close collaborator with Porter, thanking him for sending clippings and mentioning that he has sent a telegram to Noel Coward "for his opening" (of the 1961 musical Sail Away.) Dated September 30, 1961. 1 p. A few small stains, else fine. <br style=""><br>Composer, arranger and editor Albert "Doc" Sirmay was the music director of the leading music publishing firm Chappell. According to Mark Eden Horowitz, Sirmay can be considered a collaborator with Porter: he "worked closely with [Chappell's] roster of composer, including Kern, Gershwin, and especially Porter. Many of the published piano-vocal scores of standards of the mid-1920s to the mid-1960s owe their elegance, clarity, and playability to Sirmay. He could convert a lead sheet to a richly accompanied song; he could wed melodies to accompaniment figures to make the totality of a song playable on the piano; he was a master of chord voicings. Many of the Porter music manuscripts in both the Library and Yale collections are in Sirmay's clear and flowing hand." ("Cole Porter's Papers," in A Cole Porter Companion, p. 310.)<br style="">

Heinemann agreed to 'amend all unsold copies of the book' (The Times, October 25, 1962) but actually pulped them. An extremely scarce title to find with such attributes.

Stephens"" above stamped endorsement of Florida A & M University. Fine condition.Penned at the lower edge by Mrs. Logan is: ""Tuition for Priscilla Stephens.""Priscilla G. Stephens attended Florida A&M. She and her sister Patricia led the movement to integrate lunch counters in downtown Tallahassee. In September 1960, she was one of 11 students who, after attempting to eat at a lunch counter at Woolworth's, were suspended and spent 49 days in jail, rather than paying a fine.The Student Emergency Fund was founded in April 1960 by two prominent Black Americans, Jackie Robinson and Mrs. Marion B. Logan, wife of Dr. Arthur Logan. Both Jackie Robinson and his wife Rachel were patients of Dr. Logan.On December 10, 1960, The New York Times reported that the Student Emergency Fund was set up in New York City ""to help Negro and white students jailed in sit-in demonstrations in the South."" On December 22, 1960, the Times reported that the Student Emergency Fund ""is sending more than $2,000 to two white and four Negro families in New Orleans who defied segregationist picket lines to send their children to newly integrated schools. The group is headed by Jackie Robinson, former baseball star, and Mrs. Arthur Logan, wife of a Manhattan physician.""Mr. Robinson said yesterday the organization would mail a $1,000 check today to Mr. and Mrs. James Gabrielle in North Providence, R.I. The family left New Orleans after Mr. Gabrielle had quit his city job because of 'unbearable harassment' by fellow employees. Mr. Robinson said the Rev. Lloyd Foreman, Methodist minister who also defied the picket lines, would be sent a check for $719, and the families of four Negro girls attending the two schools would receive $100 each.""Also present is a 3"" x 5"" sheet of note paper listing deposits (two checks on 12/22) totaling $1000 noting ""To Gabrielles"" and ""Rev. Foreman $500."" - see December 22, 1960, article referred to above. With two 7.5"" x 3.25"" yellow $150 Chase Manhattan receipts for personal money orders, each signed in carbon by Marion B. Logan ""For: The Students' Emergency Fund,"" each payable to ""American Missionary Association Centennials,"" four customer's receipts for S.E.F. deposits July - September 1960, three 6.5"" x 11"" Chase Manhattan bank statements, with balances, each addressed to ""Student Emergency Fund / % Mr. Jackie Robinson / 425 Lexington Avenue / New York 17, N.Y.,"" October 1961 - January 1962. None of the above related bank documents (other than the January 30 1961 check here offered)are in Robinson's hand. With a Chock full o' Nuts envelope, postmarked New York, November 2, 1961, addressed by typewriter to Mrs. Marion B. Logan at Doubleday Book Shops, New York. Jackie Robinson was a Vice President at Chock full o'Nuts.A new discovery! While normal Jackie Robinson checks are many on the market, less than ten checks exist from this account with this significant civil rights association. This might be the most important."

        Jacqueline Kennedy Signed White House Print.

      , 1961. 1961. White House photographic print taken in 1961 by White House photographer Cecil Stoughton. Boldly signed by Jacqueline Kennedy at the lower left. Stoughton took multiple photos in front of the White House fountains on the South Lawn when developing the 1961 Christmas Print. The final Christmas print, which showed more ducks positioned closer to the photographer, is derived from a different photograph taken moments before or after this mock-up. Here, the ducks are positioned on the far side of the pool and the camera was positioned at a slightly different angle than that used for the final Christmas Print. Matted and framed with a full length printed portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy after a painting. The entire piece measures 20.5 inches by 31 inches. Rare and desirable. When John F. Kennedy was sworn in as president on January 20, 1961, 31-year-old Jacqueline Kennedy became the third youngest First Lady in American history. As a presidential couple, the Kennedys differed from the Eisenhowers by their relative youth and their relationship with the media. Historian Gil Troy has noted that in particular, they "emphasized vague appearances rather than specific accomplishments or passionate commitments" and therefore fit in well in the early 1960s' "cool, TV-oriented culture". The discussion on Kennedy's fashion choices continued during her years in the White House, and she became a trendsetter, hiring American designer Oleg Cassini to design her wardrobe. She was the first First Lady to hire a press secretary, Pamela Turnure, and carefully managed her contact with the media, usually shying away from making public statements, and strictly controlling the extent to which her children were photographed. Portrayed by the media as the ideal woman, academic Maurine Beasley has stated that Kennedy "created an unrealistic media expectation for first ladies that would challenge her successors." Nevertheless, by attracting worldwide positive public attention, the First Lady gained allies for the White House and international support for the Kennedy administration and its Cold War policies. Although Kennedy stated that her priority as a First Lady was to take care of the President and their children, she also dedicated her time to the promotion of American arts and preservation of its history. Her main contribution was the restoration of the White House, but she also furthered the cause by hosting social events that brought together elite figures from politics and the arts. One of her unrealized goals was to found a Department of the Arts, but she did contribute to the establishment of the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment of the Humanities, established during Johnson's tenure.

        Less than six months after the end of his eight years as Vice President, Richard Nixon writes stockbroker Jack Dreyfus that he is "not interested in investing in so-called 'safe' stock … I prefer to make an investment involving risks and providing a consequently greater opportunity for capital gain…"

      [California], July 12, 1961. 7.25" x 10.5". "Typed Letter Signed ""Dick,"" 1 page, 7.25"" x 10.5"". [Los Angeles], July 12, 1961. To financier Jack Dreyfus, New York. On his engraved Richard Nixon letterhead. With the original postmarked envelope with Los Angeles return address. Fine condition.In part, ""As I discussed with you on the phone a week or so ago, I have been reviewing my financial situation over the past few weeks and have reached the conclusion that I should make a substantial investment in stock which would provide me an opportunity for capital gain. Present indications are that from the advance payment I am receiving from my book and from income from my law practice in excess of my living expenses I will have at least forty or fifty thousand dollars available for investment in stock at this time.""As I told you, I am not interested in investing in so-called 'safe' stock with a substantial guarantee of dividend income. Because of my capital position and the high income I will be receiving from earnings over the next five years, I prefer to make an investment involving risks and providing a consequently greater opportunity for capital gain. Recalling our several conversations with regard to Polaroid … explore to possibility of my purchasing a call on a thousand shares of Polaroid stock…"" Read the entire letter in the image above.Financier Jack Dreyfus (1913-2009) founded the brokerage house Dreyfus & Co. in 1947; it developed into the Dreyfus Fund. In 1964, Life magazine called him the “Maverick Wizard Behind the Wall Street Lion,” in reference to the emblem of his fund and its aggressive marketing. Dreyfus, it said, was “the most singular and effective personality to appear in Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch.” His paternal grandfather was a first cousin of Alfred Dreyfus, the protagonist of the late 19th-century anti-Semitic scandal known as the Dreyfus Affair. Dreyfus sold his mutual fund company in 1970 and established the Dreyfus Health Foundation to pursue other medical applications for Dilantin which had cured his depression in the 1960s. In 2000, Dreyfus said that an account in The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon by Anthony Summers (New York: Viking, 2000) that he gave Dilantin to Richard Nixon in 1968 was correct. Dreyfus said he gave Nixon a bottle of 1,000 capsules of 100 milligrams each ''when his mood wasn't too good,'' and later gave him another bottle of 1,000 capsules."

        Projet pour un édifice public empaqueté. Photomontage No 1. - Originalfotocollage. Rückseitig bezeichnet und signiert.

      Paris, octobre 1961 - 24,7 x 18,2 cm. Vergleiche Schellmann/Bernecke 20. - Originalvorlage für den Abdruck in "et 3", die 1967 erschien. Die Arbeit ist das erste Grossprojekt von Christo. Für die Collage verwendete er ein s/w. Foto einer 1961 entstandenen "Package" Skulptur, die er mit einem Bild der Strassenszene vor dem Gebäude verknüpfte. Christo kam 1958 als Christo Vladimirov Javacheff nach Paris, wo er sich als Porträtmaler durchschlug. Einer seiner Kunden war Jacques de Guillebon, Direktor der Ecole Polytechnique, der Vater seiner Kunst- und Lebenspartnerin Jeanne-Claude. Kein Zufall, dass das erste grosse Verpackungsprojekt die Wirkungsstätte seines Schwieigervaters war. Christo titelte das Werk später um in « Projet pour l'emballage de l'École Militaire à Paris ». Die Collage wurde in der ersten Einzelausstellung Christos in der Galerie Haro Lauhus in Köln erstmals, zusammen mit dem erklärenden Text gezeigt. Dabei steht das Konzept noch vor der Realisierung. « Le présent projet pour un édifice public empaqueté est utilisable 1. comme salle sportive / 2. comme salle de concert, planétarium / 3. comme un musée historique, d'art ancien et d'art moderne / 4. comme salle parlementaire ou une prison. » - Das Blatt wird erst 1968 in einer Mappe mit mehreren anderen Arbeiten in einer Auflage von 100 Exemplaren nachgedruckt. (Schellmann/Bernecke 20). Christo wird 1968 in Bern mit der Kunsthalle die erste Verpackung eines Gebäudes realisieren. «Nos projets sont des oeuvres d'art in situ, ce ne sont pas des objets transportables. D'habitude une sculpture normale, qu'elle soit classique ou moderne, a son propre espace physique. D'une certaine façon cet espace appartient à la sculpture car il a été préparé pour elle. Nos projets touchent une sensibilité plus vaste, en fait ils s'approprient ou empruntent des espaces qui habituellement n'appartiennent pas à la sculpture.» Mit einer handschriftlichen Anleitung von Christo zur Herstellung des Fotofilms "Pour le cliché faire les rétouche (sic) sur le photomontage". - Der Fototfilm zum Druck in der "et3" liegt bei. - Eine zentrale, frühe und programmatische Arbeit im Werk von Christo und Jeanne-Claude.

The condition of the wrapper is far better than usually encountered. An exceptional copy. The John Rowland designed wrapper looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival protector. A very SCARCE early key BURGESS title with an interesting history:The novel was withdrawn from circulation following a libel action by Gwendoline Bustin, the secretary of Banbury Grammar School where Burgess taught in the early fifties. Several characters were recognisable as figures from the school, but only Miss Burstin, later Lady Mayoress of Banbury, objected. Heinemann agreed to 'amend all unsold copies of the book' (The Times, October 25, 1962) but actually pulped them. An extremely scarce title to find with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
