        Barakei = Killed by Roses = Muerto por las rosas.

      Shueisha (Lumen), Tokyo 1963 - Primera edición, edición original, firma manuscrita en papel rojo de seda, por Mishima  y el fotógrafo Eikoh Hosoe. Tirada mundial de 1500 ejemplares (el nuestro núm. 598). Tamaño Gran folio. 43 fotografías en b y n, 4 ilustraciones en papel de Arroz, dos fotografías desplegables. Cuadernillo  grapado impreso con la traducción del texto de Mishima en castellano. Sólo, lógicamente, lo poseen los ejemplares que distribuyó Lumen en España. En este cuaderno la editora Esther Tusquets explica la gran expectación que produjo Barakei= killed by Roses cuando fue presentado en la Feria de Frankfurt. En seguida se propuso adquirir unos cuantos ejemplares para traerlos a España y distribuirlos en Lumen (sin concretar qué cantidad). Son pues estos ejemplares  de Muerte por la Rosas, escasos en edición española, pero es mérito de la editorial Lumen haber presentado algunos de los grandes fotolibros del Siglo XX  en el ámbito hispánico. Éste, Barakei, sin lugar a dudas lo es. (The Photobook: A History/ Parr; Badger 280-281.) El estado del libro es excelente y la impresión es de una suntuosidad rara vez vista en libros de la segunda mitad del Siglo XX. Las tintas y el papel así como la calidad artística de Hosoe como fotógrafo, hacen de este libro, un libro de artista. La encuadernación en tela de dos colores y el interior en perfecto estado, protegido por la funda camisa de editorial en acetato. Lo único reseñable se ve en las ilustraciones de las páginas de arroz que presentan unas manchas amarillentas (posiblemente por la acidez de las colas de la encuadernación). Las fotografías, en perfecto estado, no presentan ningún rastro de ello. Además se conserva  el estuche en cartón de la edición japonesa; con algunas señales de uso y desgaste sobre todo en una de las caras y alguna abolladura. Una pegatina de Lumen fue añadida ¿Muerto por las Rosas¿ así como el libreto grapado rojo arriba mencionado; sobre esa cubierta no sabría decir si ese es el aspecto rojo desvaído de origen o el papel rojo ha sufrido algún percance justo en el centro. En todo caso el libro está completo y en excelente estado y mínimos defectos en los anexos. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        2 Early, Handwritten Neil Simon Letters Signed

      Signed letter. 2 warm, handwritten letters from Neil Simon (both signed "Doc") to a fellow comedy writer. One dated October 1963, the other from the same period if not even earlier. In both cases he's expressing his surprise over the success of his early plays (possibly "Barefoot in the Park", etc.). Both letters have held up very nicely, as have the original envelopes (with his New York addresses at the time prominently featured).

Signed by Sanders on back cover. Cover art by Sanders. Sanders typed this issue in the quarters of The Living Theater in NYC, using the group’s typewriter- type stencils. Printed specifically to distribute at the Great March on Washington, August 1963 . [Sanders 48]. This is the issue that two years later would cause the raid on Peace Eye Bookstore. In the "Notes to Contributors," Sanders announces (admittedly straying from reality) that he had the first fifty-three hieroglyphs of Akh-en-Aten’s "Hymn to the Sun Disc" tattooed on his private parts. [Sanders 49]. It was this comment that offended the raiding officer. Provocative lines such as "We Must Fuck One Another or Die!" and "Grope for Peace" are common throughout the magazine.Contributors included Sanders, Tuli Kupferberg (also of the Fugs), Carol Berge, John Wieners, Andy Warhol, Ray Bremser, Lenore Kandel, Charles Olson, Joel Oppenheimer, Peter Orlovsky, Philip Whalen, Allen Ginsberg, Herbert Huncke, Julian Beck, Frank O'Hara, Leroi Jones, Diane DiPrima, William Burroughs, Gay Snyder, Robert Kelly, Judith Malina, Carl Solomon, Gregory Corso, Robert Duncan, Robert Creeley, Michael McClure, Ted Berrigan, Joe Brainard, Gilbert Sorrentino, and many others - the "A" list of avant garde poetry in the '60s.

        The Collector (RARE VARIANT BLACK BINDING, FINE COPY)

      Jonathan Cape 1963 - First Edition, first printing published in 1963 by Jonathan Cape. This is the impossibly rare 'Variant Black Binding' copy of which the precise printing details have not been catalogued but it is thought by a number of leading experts in the trade that there may be as few as 25 copies of this rarity. The story goes that Cape sent it to print and without stipulating the colour of boards the printers used what was Jonathan Cape's standard coloured black/charcoal boards (Used similarly on the James Bond books of the same period) around 25 were printed before Cape discontinued this mistake run only to change to the russet red/brown cloth which can be seen on the usual trade 'firsts'. This copy has an UNCLIPPED wrapper priced at 18s, only one such copy listed via ABE at £4500. This is without a doubt one of the most desirable scarcities in Modern First Collecting and has been well documented over the years with only a handful of copies having appeared at auction in the last twenty years. Book: Near Fine, light rub to the bottom right corner of upper board and light shelf ware to the head and foot of the spine, otherwise a very smart copy, spine entirely unfaded, gilt stamped titles fresh and bright, square corners. Save a previous owner's neat inscription to the ffep the pages are very clean and tightly bound. A very handsome example. Wrapper: Near Fine, Unclipped Copy. The very lightest shelware only, the lower panel has some toning and browning to extrem's. The head and foot of the spine has had the very lightest professional restoration, this is almost imperceptible, spine looks superb. A very, very rare volume offered very competitively, it's priced to sell. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
