        King Rat.

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1962 - Octavo. Original buff cloth, titles to spine in dark green, publisher's device to front board in blind, top edge dark green. With the dust jacket. A few slight marks to boards; an excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with slightly toned spine, a few nicks and chips to extremities and short closed tear with minor loss to foot of spine. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "This is for Larry Kramer - not because he is a friend of Mr. Big (Little, Brown) - but because he liked a story whispered to me on an ancient wind - and because, too, of understanding. Salam al likim [approximate phonetization of traditional Arabic salutation], Oct. 29 '62. Jamie." Kramer later rose to prominence in the 1970s as an author, gay rights activist, and founder of ACT UP. Kramer and Clavell would have met when Kramer, then an unknown, was working in Hollywood rewriting scripts for Columbia Pictures. King Rat was written by Clavell in an intense period of three months in 1960. "The book was also a catharsis for Clavell, as it told of a power struggle among a group of Japanese prisoners of war. It was an immediate best-seller and the first of what Clavell called his Asian saga" (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition]

        FRONTESPIECE - VITRAUX POUR JERUSALEM

      MONTECARLO , 1962Litografia originale a colori impressa su carta vellina. Tavola fuori testo tratto dal volume "Vitraux pour Jerusalem" dedicato all'opera vetraia eseguita a Gerusalemme da Chagall. Famose in tutto il mondo, queste magnifiche vetrate policrome, della misura di metri 4 per 2,8 circa, sono state realizzate dal grande artista ebreo di origine bielorussa Marc Chagall in due anni di lavoro, tra il 1960 e il 1961, ed installate nel 1962 nella sinagoga del centro medico universitario Hadassah di Gerusalemme. Ogni vetrata, dominata da un colore diverso, è un microcosmo del caratteristico e fantastico mondo di Chagall, dove, tra realtà e immaginazione, egli rappresenta il suo profondo senso di identificazione con la storia e la cultura del popolo ebraico e, ispirato dalle sacre scritture, ritrae, tra simboli e fantasiose figure di fiori e animali, i dodici figli di Giacobbe e le dodici tribù di Israele. L'inizio della produzione litografica di Chagall risale al periodo di Berlino (1922 - 1923) ma fu nel 1946, negli Stati Uniti, che Chagall accettò di illustrare "Le mille e una notte": le tredici tavole del volume segnarono i suoi primi passi nella litografia a colori. Di ritorno a Parigi nel 1950, l'artista si recò dallo stampatore Fernand Mourlot, al quale si deve in gran parte il rilancio della litografia nel dopoguerra. Dal 1950 al 1952 Chagall frequentò assiduamente l'atelier di Mourlot dove imparò tutti i segreti del mestiere. Le prove di quel periodo furono stampate in pochi esemplari o distrutte, poiché lo scopo dell'artista non era quello di realizzare opere finite ma di impadronirsi della tecnica. Tra il 1922 e il 1985 Marc Chagall realizzò 1500 litografie. Molte litografie di Chagall furono realizzate con venti / venticinque colori e testimoniano l'enorme lavoro dell'artista: nessuno prima di lui raggiunse una perfezione tale da associare all'ineguagliabile ispirazione la completa padronanza della tecnica. Chagall fece della litografia non un mezzo per moltiplicare le sue opere, ma uno strumento necessario a una creazione che non poteva essere espressa in alcun altro modo. L'artista non realizzò quasi mai bozzetti preliminari per le sue litografie e da ciò derivano l'incanto e la spontaneità creatrice dei suoi lavori. I quattro volumi "Chagall litographe", da cui è tratto il foglio in esame, furono realizzati da Fernand Mourlot e Charles Sorlier (André Sauret editore) tra il 1960 e il 1974. Ogni volume cataloga le litografie realizzate da Chagall in un determinato periodo temporale ed è arricchito da diverse litografie originali inserite nei volumi come tavole fuori testo. Esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione, margini editoriali.

        Golem. Polemik für 9 Vokalsolisten. Partitur.

      O.O.,Vlg.u.J. (ca. 1962). - Folio. IX, 70 S. Halbleinenbd. mit montiertem Deckelschild (Ecken etwas bestossen, VDeckel mit Besitzervermerk und leicht verzogen, Kanten leicht berieben). Partitur, als Typoskript gedruckt. - Hans G. Helms, der heute in Berlin lebt, bietet das eindrucksvolle Beispiel einer Doppelbiografie als Künstler und kritischer Intellektueller. Vom Jazz kommend, hat der frühere Tenorsaxofonist als experimenteller Schriftsteller und Komponist eine allmähliche Entwicklung zum Sozial- und Wirtschaftshistoriker vollzogen. Über Jahre hinweg betreibt er Privatstudien der Sprachwissenschaft, Philosophie und Soziologie bei Roman Jakobson, Theodor W. Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Siegfried Kracauer und Jürgen Kuczynski. Im Kölner Studio für Elektronische Musik führt er Klanganalysen und phonetische Experimente durch und entwickelt in diesem Rahmen enge Verbindungen zu Stockhausen, Boulez, Paik und insbesondere John Cage, für dessen Werk er sich besonders einsetzt. Im Austausch mit György Ligeti, Franco Evangelisti, Wolf Rosenberg und Mauricio Kagel wird Helms schließlich einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der experimentellen Poesie. Sein Werk "Fa:m' Ahniesgwow" (1959) und sprachkritische Kompositionen wie "Golem" haben heute legendären Status. "Der 'Golem' . ist eine Polemik gegen das im Urschlamm sich sielende Philosophieren Martin Heideggers, der einmal die Vernunft zur 'Widersacherin des Denkens' erklärt hat" (Helms). - Die Uraufführung fand 1962 im Sendesaal des Radio Bremen statt. - Aus dem Besitz des Dirigenten Fred Barth, dem Leiter des 1952 von Ellen Widmann gegründeten Kammersprechchors Zürich, mit dessen handschr. Besitzervermerk sowie zahlreichen handschr. Korrekturen und Spiel- und Singanweisungen in Blei- und Buntstift. - Ränder leicht gebräunt. Lang de [Attributes: First Edition]

        William Burroughs and Anthony Balch at the Beat Hotel, circa 1962 (Original oversize photograph)

      N.p.: N.p., 1962. Vintage double weight silver gelatin photograph, unpublished, from the photo session that would eventually be utilized for the Burroughs profile and review of "Naked Lunch" that appeared in the November 30, 1962 issue of Time magazine (included here). Shot by noted photographer Nicholas Tikhomiroff, who worked on assignment for the project, with his stamp on the verso. The profile/review, an unflattering piece titled "King of the YADS," eventually inspired Burroughs to utilize the issue in which it appeared in his early and important "cut-up," TIME (1965) for Ted Berrigan's "C" Press. With Burroughs met Balch at the Beat Hotel in 1960, embarking on a collaboration that would last until the end of Balch's life. Balch frequently filmed Burroughs in the midst of mundane activities (buying a parrot in Morocco) to more theatrical ones (Burroughs in character as Dr. Benway). The two also worked on several short films together, including "Tower on Fire" (1963), "The Cut Ups" (1967), and "Bill and Tony" (1972). Balch's experimental style heavily influenced Burroughs' own ideas about cut-ups and Balch is given special thanks by Burroughs in his 1963 novel, "The Ticket That Exploded." Balch followed Burroughs throughout the 1960s, moving with him from Paris to New York and then to London, often even living in the same building. The two remained close throughout the 1970s until Balch's premature death from stomach cancer in 1972. One of the earliest images, if not the earliest, of Burroughs with Balch, and one of only a small handful of photos we've seen of the Beat giant with one of his most important collaborators. 9 x 13.5 inches. Near Fine. Maynard and Miles A11.

        Portrait Photographs of Jane Jacobs

      1962. Photograph Photograph. Near Fine. Six original black-and-white photographs, 9-7/8 by 13-1/4 inches to 11 by 14 inches. In 1961, Jane Jacobs, a journalist for Architectural Forum, published The Death and Life of Great American Cities. While she had no formal training in city planning, she was an acute observer of city life and keenly interested in the neighborhoods of New York City. Death and Life was critical of the then-popular vogue for large-scale redevelopment project; Jabobs described a people and neighborhood centered view of planning. Her observations on how neighborhoods and cities really worked shook the planning profession to the core. Death and Life belongs with Silent Spring and The Feminine Mystique as one of the most influential books of the early 1960s, all written by women without formal training in their fields. By 1962, Jacobs was famous enough to be featured in Horizon magazine, which commissioned noted photographer Ruth Orkin to take Jacobs' picture. These are five images from that photo shoot. Orkin photographed Jacobs in her Greenich Village neighborhood (the sign for Bleeker St. is visible in one photograph), with her son, Ned, and her daughter Burgin. Two images with small creases in one corner, but generally fine or nearly so. Five are signed on the back by Orkin; the unsigned image has a Horizon stamp indicating it was published in the magazine.

        The Ticket That Exploded.

      The Olympia Press, London 1962 - First edition, first printing. Octavo, original green wrappers. Signed by William Burroughs on the title page. In fine condition. A superior example. "It is in books like The Ticket that Exploded that Burroughs seems to revel in a new medium for its own sake--a medium totally fantastic, spaceless, timeless, in which the normal sentence is fractured, the cosmic tries to push its way through bawdry, and the author shakes the reader as a dog shakes a rat" (Anthony Burgess).
