        Sports Banquet Program Signed by First African-American Heisman Trophy Winner Ernie Davis, as well as by Jim Brown, John Mackey, Maury Youmans, Dave Giusti, 1/21/1962

      St. Margaret's Holy Name Society, Mattydale, NY 1962 - Mattydale, NY: St. Margaret's Holy Name Society, 1962. Signed by Ernie Davis and four other Syracuse University athlete alumni. January 21, 1962: A program for the St. Margaret's Holy Name Society Fathers and Sons Sports Banquet (as such events were then called) program, for a feast honoring Jim Brown and Special Guest Ernie Davis - both former star running backs at Syracuse University, two-time All-American Davis quite recently, having capped his final season at Syracuse in 1961 by becoming the first African-American to win the Heisman Trophy. The banquet program was published by St. Margaret's Church in Mattydale, NY, a northern-edge adjacent suburb of Syracuse, and was funded, of course, by the local business ads that dominated such things. It is octavo in size, stapled wraps, unpaginated, but 20 pp. + covers; in Very Good condition, with faint front cover soiling and four small pieces of dry, removable masking tape on the rear cover. That's because it was in my scrapbook from back then. The dominant ads were not all that was in this program, however; There were two pages featuring Brown and Davis, a list of honored guests (that's my penciled remarks on the honored guests page, scrawled at age 13) and, more to the point: the autographs of Ernie Davis, Jim Brown, John Mackey, Maury Youmans and Dave Giusti. Giusti and Youmans were local-boys-make-good former stars at 'Cuse - Giusti as a pitcher for the Houston Colt 45s (later Astros), the St. Louis Cardinals, the San Diego Padres and the Pittsburgh Pirates, for whom he was named Relief Pitcher of the Year in 1971 by the Sporting News and made the All-Star team in 1973; Youmans was a defensive end for Da Bears and Da Cowboys. But it was the non-local-boy 'Cuse stars at the banquet who were all to become hall-of-famers: Jim Brown, John Mackey, and the late Ernie Davis. I wonder how many Pop Warner-based Father-Son Sports Banquets get such a lineup at the same dinner these days ? Davis, of course, died some 14 months later, a victim of leukemia, before ever being able to play a down of pro football. The Cleveland Browns, who had acquired him from the Washington Redskins, wanted to team him with the other former Orangeman heavyweight running back at the banquet that night, Brown. There's your running game. But it wasn't meant to be. Ernie passed on. Hence, the great rarity of autographs by one of the most memorable Heisman winners in history. Davis was, of course, honored in recent years by a book and a movie, both entitled The Express; coming out of high school in Elmira, NY, his nickname was The Elmira Express. This all belongs to the mists of time, now. Your provenance for these autographs are 1) Forensic Handwriting Examiner Frank Garo (his certification will accompany the program), and 2).Me. And a written provenance letter from me, if you want. I was the skinny kid just about done with Pop Warner football, about to go on and get two broken legs, an ACL injury that later gave me a bionic knee, and about one each of every other football injury (you know the routine - but it was worth it, wasn't it ?), who walked around and timidly got all these autographs the night of January 21, 1962. Don't worry. I did it twice. I'm keeping the other set. l-eph [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        American Folk Blues Festival, Original, Vintage, 1962 German Concert Poster By Gunther Kieser

      - American Folk Blues Festival Concert Poster, Auditorium Max,[Hamburg], Oct. 18,[1962], produced by Lippmann & Rau; designed by Gunther Kieser with the Michel + Kieser imprint to bottom centre right, inside the guitar margin. A1 Format, 23.25" by 33" (59 cm. by 83.8 cm.), in fine condition, bright, unmarked, with crisp factory folds. The American Folk Blues Festival was the brainchild of German concert promoters, Horst Lippmann and Fritz Rau, who had been successfully presenting jazz concerts in Germany since the mid - 1950's. The first AFBF was held in 1962, for which this poster was designed, and working with the well-connected Chicago bluesman, composer and bassist Willie Dixon, L&R were able to present a who's who of American urban and country blues artists for the first time to European audiences. Exposure to these great American blues musicians inspired and influenced a generation of British musicians, including future rock stars Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, all of whom played an important role in the blue-based British Invasion of the 1960's. AFBF continued until 1972 with a series of highly successful concerts in Germany, France and England, after which the festivals were terminated for an eight year hiatus before resuming in 1980 for another five years. The posters created exclusively for the German AFBF festivals were designed by the eminent graphic designer Gunther Kieser and are representative of some of his finest music poster designs. A significant blues poster for the first presentation of the influential American Folk Blues Festival, in collector's condition. J1750 [Attributes: First Edition]

Founded in 1957, it reached its peak of influence in the May 1968 protests in France. With their ideas rooted in Marxism and the 20th-century European artistic avant-gardes, they advocated experiences of life alternative to those admitted by advanced capitalism, for the fulfillment of human desires. For this purpose they suggested and experimented with the "construction of situations", namely the setting up of environments favorable for the fulfillment of such desires. Using methods drawn from the arts, they developed a series of experimental fields of study, including unitary urbanism and psychogeography.

        Wise Blood.

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, 1962 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge dyed orange. With the dust jacket. A beautiful copy in the dust jacket with faded spine panel. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Helen Nash, with cheers, Flannery O'Connor". Wise Blood, O'Connor's first novel, was originally published in 1952; this is a later printing. It appears that Nash knew O'Connor's good friend Maryat Lee, who requested this inscription. On 17 August 1962, O'Connor wrote to Lee that "Book on way - a donation to the cause if there is a cause if not, spectacle est gratui anyhow. I put to Helen Nash & after it was wrapped up I got to worrying if it shouldn't have been Dr. Helen Nash, but it was done wrapped up. I ain't supposed to know she's a doctor". Lee was a supporter of the Civil Rights Movement, and Nash (1921–2012) was a pioneering African American doctor, becoming in 1949 the first African American to join the staff of the St. Louis Children's Hospital. Inscriptions of any type by O'Connor are rare. [Attributes: First Edition]

Biographisches Lexikon der hervorragenden Ärzte der letzten fünfzig Jahre. Zugleich Fortsetzung des Biographischen Lexikons der hervorragenden Ärzte aller Zeiten und Völker (Aaser bis Zweig) 2 Bände KOMPLETT (insgesamt 8 Bände),

      Urban & Schwarzenberg; 1962 - insgesamt ca. 7000 Seiten; Unter den Grundlagenwerken der medizinischen Biographik nimmt das "Biographische Lexikon der hervorragenden Ärzte einen besonderen Rang ein. Das von August Hirsch herausgegebene Grundwerk "Biographisches Lexikon der hervorragenden Ärzte aller Zeiten und Völker" erschien in fünf Bänden 1884 – 1888 in Wien. Das Werk wurde mit dem von Julius Pagel herausgegebenen Biographischen Lexikon hervorragender Ärzte des 19. Jahrhunderts (1901) fortgeführt, das seinerseits eine Fortsetzung u.d.T. Biographisches Lexikon der hervorragenden Ärzte der letzten fünfzig Jahre erfuhr, das, von Isidor Fischer herausgegeben, 1932 – 1933 in zwei Bänden erschien. Für die bleibende Bedeutung dieser mehrteiligen Medizinerbiographie zeugt auch die Tatsache, daß die Bände mehrfach nachgedruckt bzw. als unveränderte Auflagen vom Originalverlag – Urban & Schwarzenberg – nach dem Krieg (1962) wieder ins Programm genommen wurden. Der jüngste der Teile enthält Biographien von 7800 Medizinern aus aller Welt, genau genommen aus 52 Ländern, wenngleich mit deutlichen Schwerpunkten (die folgenden Zahlen beruhen auf der Auszählung der Namen des Verzeichnisses . nach Herkunftsländern. Die Masse mit 1428 entfällt auf Deutschland, gefolgt von Österreich (449), den USA (446), Frankreich (277), Großbritannien (249) und Italien (247). Vertreten sind die sonstigen europäischen Länder, insbesondere auch die Mittel-, Ost- und Südosteuropas, angeführt von Rußland (207); berücksichtigt sind auch überseeische Länder (von den bereits erwähnten USA abgesehen) wie diverse südamerikanische oder Japan (150). Wie „hervorragend" diese Ärzte wirklich waren, ist eine andere Sache, da das Lebenswerk in über der Hälfte der Fälle noch nicht abgeschlossen war, da zum Zeitpunkt des Erscheinens der beiden Bände 1932/33 noch 4408 Personen oder 56 % noch am Leben waren.

        A CLOCKWORK ORANGE - SIGNED

      William Heinemann, London 1962 - First Impression. Octavo; second issue purple binding, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; 196pp. Signed by Burgess on the title page above his printed name, which he has crossed out. Vintage booksellers label (Foyles) to front pastedown, else Fine in a price-clipped (and therefore presumed) second issue dustjacket; some pin-point wear to crown and corner tips, a single short tear at upper edge of rear panel, with the shadow of an old cello-tape mend removed from verso, indiscernable from the outset; a bright, very Near Fine example of a jacket normally encountered heavily-worn. The author's best-known work, a violent dystopia and basis for Stanley Kubrick's highly-regarded 1971 film. The idea for Burgess's novel, sadly, was inspired by real-life events: his wife Llewela was violently assaulted by several G.I.'s during the wartime blackout in London. The assault induced a miscarriage, psychological trauma, and resulted in her being unable to bear children. "Nauseated by the content of his tale, he wrote it with the help of gin and dexedrine." Burgess's agent ended up selling the rights to Clockwork to a lawyer named Si Litvinoff for the ridiculous sum of $500.00; Litvinoff then sold them to Kubrick and Warner Brothers for $500,000.00, and the film ended up turning Kubrick into a multi-millionaire overnight. One of the most innovative and enduring works of the latter half of the 20th century. Boytinck 75; Brewer A04. [Attributes: First Edition]
