        A Section of one of the Muntz metal plates removed from the bottom of the hull of the "Cutty Sark" in the course of repairs to the ship in 1963.

      330 x 335mm approx, with irregular edges and several holes, some oxidation and patination, preserved in custom-made cloth flapcase with leather label. With original certificate of authenticity, stating this is no. 15 of an unstated limitation, signed by Henry Barraclough, Chairman of the "Cutty Sark" Society. Also with a copy of the 1953 "Cutty Sark and the Days of Sail" exhibition catalogue, and a copy of Frank G.G. Carr's The Story of the Cutty Sark (1972). During ongoing restoration to the Cutty Sark in 1963, 289 sheets of Alumbro were used to replace badly dezincified Muntz metal sheets, some of the original sheets being offered for sale. Muntz Metal is a form of alpha-beta brass with about 60% copper, 40% zinc and a trace of iron. It is named after George Fredrick Muntz, a metal-roller of Birmingham, England. Muntz commercialised the alloy following his patent of 1832, although William Collins had patented a 56:44 alloy in 1800. Its original use was as a replacement for the copper sheathing placed on the bottom of boats, as it maintained the anti-fouling abilities of the pure copper. As it cost around two thirds of the price of pure copper and had identical properties for this application, it became the material of choice and Muntz made his fortune. Later it was used to sheathe the piles of piers in tropical seas, as a protection against teredo shipworms, and in locomotive tubes. Muntz Metal is still the term this form of brass is known by. It is a form of brass that must be worked hot and is used for machine parts that must be corrosion resistant. After successful experimentation with the sheathing Muntz also took out a patent for bolts of the same composition and these also proved a success, for not only were they cheaper they were also very strong and lasted longer. The hull of the Cutty Sark was a notable use of Muntz Metal.

        Autograph Postcard to Leonora Ison.

      Colour Panoramic View Card of Chatsworth House. Betjeman was presumably staying at the House with his companion Lady Elizabeth Cavendish, sister of the then Duke of Devonshire. Leonora Ison collaborated with Betjeman on his series of articles Men and Buildings written for the Daily Telegraph providing illustrations to accompany his text. This postcard signed in full by Betjeman gives Ison the plan for the article Preserve or Destroy which appeared on September 9th 1963. "This time I'm writing about the quite false battle created by the fools like Reyner Banham and the Tories (but not mentionaing names) between Destructivists and Preservationists. I want a drawing to show how in the 15th Cent, a comparable time with today, they added Perp to earlier work and both went well together. eg? W Front of Peterborough with its little perp porch, or North of Canterbury with choir layout, or any other thing you like as an example." For the working relationship between Betjeman and Leonora Ison see Hillier The Bonus of Laughter (p.75-78).

      Kansas City, Missouri William Rockhill Nelson Gallery of Art and Mary Atkins Museum of Fine Arts 1963. William Rockhill Nelson Gallery of Art and Mary Atkins Museum of Fine Arts: Kansas City, Missouri, 1963. POPULAR ART: Artistic Projections of Common American Symbols. Very Rare 1963 POP ART Exhibition Catalogue LIMITED To 500 Copies. Catalogue of an Exhibition held April 28 - May 26, 1963, at the William Rockhill Nelson Gallery of Art and Mary Atkins Museum of Fine Arts, Kansas City, Missouri. A Very Scarce 1963 Exhibition Catalogue of original Pop Artists. Considered one of the seminal exhibitions that shaped the beginning of the Pop Art Movement. Limited to only 500 copies, so stated. Oblong softcover, heavy paper wrappers with die cut cover, 8.5" x 5.25", staple bound, 34 pages, title page and one illustration are silk screened on acetate, illustrated with 10 black & white off-set photographs of work from the show, artist bio's, descriptions of the art and their prices. Text by Museum Curator Ralph T. Coe. Catalogue and exhibition designed by G.F. Crabtree, Jr. Artists in this catalogue are: Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, and Wayne Theibaud. Almost all of these artists note this early Kansas City exhibition in all their later biographies and exhibition chronologies. This catalogue rarely comes up for auction and when it shows up anywhere it is usually very expensive. The Pop Art Movement went public in February 1962 with major NYC Gallery Exhibitions featuring Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, Claes Oldenburg, Tom Wesselmann, Andy Warhol, and Jim Dine. In March 1963, just one year after its official launch, Pop Art was featured at a major NYC Museum - the Guggenheim - with an exhibition of Pop painters Dine, Jasper Johns, Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Rosenquist, and Warhol. In April of 1963, the third museum exhibition of Pop Art was held at the William Rockhill Nelson Gallery of Art and Mary Atkins Museum of Fine Arts in Kansas City. This is the catalogue of that show. GOOD CONDITION: With the stamp of the Oakland Museum Library on the blank page following the title and visible through the die-cut cover and acetate title page; the front cover has light wear and a few scrapes; the rear cover is darkened by something clear that was brushed on and dried long ago, has a 2" oval scrape, and has 19 random tiny pin-holes that are barely visible and caused tiny off-setting on the rear blank end paper. Internally, there is a light corner-tip crease to the lower bottom pages, light front edge wear from thumbing, and some light age-toning, otherwise the inner pages are very good, tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A Respectable copy of this important 1963 Pop Art Catalogue. Good

Met originele envelop.* Interessante collectie brieven en een spraakmakende boekbespreking van een meestentijds gehaast auteur. In de eerste brief aan de redactiesecretaris van De Gids trekt Andreus het gedicht 'Bedoel' terug voor publicatie, omdat het intussen al in de bundel Aarde is opgenomen. Hij werkt aan een gedichtencyclus, maar kan nu niets inzenden: 'Ik heb nog wel wat oude gedichten, maar ik vind ze zelf stomvervelend'. 'Bedoel' is evenwel bijgevoegd in typoscript (met twee handgeschreven correcties) en als drukproef.De tweede brief begeleidt Andreus' eerste stuk voor de kroniek 'Reacties van een lezer'. 'Ik heb dit stuk in wat moeizame omstandigheden geschreven want mijn vader was overleden en behalve emotionele dingen raakte ik door begrafenis en familietoestanden nogal achter op mijn werkschema'. Uitvoerig over de titel van zijn kroniek: 'Kroniek met kritiek' en 'Kritische Kroniek' zijn geen van beide favoriet. Opmerkelijk: 'Door enige verwarring in mijn werkkamer heb ik 't stuk per ongeluk in de vuilnisbak gegooid, maar 't er later weer uitgevist'.De derde brief is kort maar belangrijk: 'Onbeschrijflijk druk, daarom nu eerst stuk over Jan Cremer. In handschrift, sorry'. Bedoeld wordt de bespreking door Andreus van Ik, Jan Cremer voor het aprilnummer: het volledige handschrift van vijf bladen is bijgevoegd. Andreus heeft een genuanceerd oordeel over de onverbiddelijke bestseller: 'enfin, je leest deze nieuw-realistische schelmenroman met zoveel doodgewoon lezersplezier dat je het doorleest en doorleest en de 344 bladzijden wilt uitlezen als vroeger een dubbele Karl May [.] Een intellectueel boek is het niet [.] Maar het boek is goed. Het heeft niets met Grote Kunst te maken'.In de volgende brieven gaat het over de kroniekonderwerpen ('Ik weet nog niet waar ik 't de volgende keer over zal hebben; ik denk gewoon wat lullen over poëzie') en de rommelige kopij ('Dan krijg je mooie getikte vellen met ook niet zulke lange zinnen d'r op', 'een slordig schrijver, deze heer'). Ter begeleiding van een stuk over Armando: 'De conclusie vooral: dat uitgerekend hij nooit het lef heeft gehad om met het materiaal van zijn emoties etc. te werken, zoals een dichter dat moet doen'.Met de laatste brief stuurt Andreus een geleende dichtbundel van Hoornik retour. Vier getypte gedichten zijn eveneens bijgevoegd.

        Self Portrait.

      New York: Atlantic, Little, Brown, 1963. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the half title page, "For Roberta Kimmel Cordially Man Ray." The recipient was a well regarded Manhattan art dealer and friend of Man Ray's. Some light rubbing, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with very light rubbing. In this remarkable autobiography, Man Ray painter, photographer, sculptor, film maker and writer relates the story of his life, from his childhood determination to be an artist and his technical drawing classes in a Brooklyn high school, to the glamorous and heady days of Paris in the 1940s, when any trip to the city 'was not complete until they had been "done" by Man Ray's camera'. Friend to everyone who was anyone, Ray tells everything he knows of artists, socialites and writers such as Matisse, Hemingway, Picasso and Joyce, not to mention Lee Miller, Nancy Cunard, Alberto Giacometti, Gertrude Stein, Dali, Max Ernst and many more, in this decadent, sensational account of the early twentieth-century cultural world.

        C: A Journal of Poetry. Vol. 1 No. 4

      New York: Lorenz Gude & Ted Berrigan. 1963. The fourth issue of this mimeographed poetry journal, this issue being devoted to the work of poet Edwin Denby, with contributions by him as well as pieces about his work by Berrigan, Frank O'Hara and John Wieners. It is most famous at this point for the cover, which "was designed by Andy Warhol from photographs of poets Edwin Denby and Gerard Malanga." Warhol took a number of Polaroid photographs of Denby and Malanga and then created a silk screen from them for the covers. The clarity and resolution of the images vary from copy to copy of the production, either as a result of the screen getting clogged by re-use or as a result of deliberate manipulation by Warhol; in this copy, the images on the front are clearly two individuals but the resolution is limited and the image presents almost as an abstraction; the rear cover, which is a shot of the two poets kissing, is in this copy virtually entirely abstract. An early and important Warhol production: this is the first known instance of Warhol using Polaroid photographs for making silkscreen images, a practice he came back to later and became his standard approach for portraits. Some edge wear to the covers and the spine, and a tear at the base of the spine; overall very good in stapled wrappers. Softcover.

        Annual New York Avant Garde Festival [title varies]. Signed by Jim McWilliams. Complete set of 19 vintage posters, 1963-1980

      Between 1963 and 1980 the cellist and performance artist Charlotte Moorman (known mostly for her work with Nam June Paik) organized fifteen increasingly elaborate festivals featuring a wide variety of performances in various locations. The first three were at Judson Hall, a small recital hall across from Carnegie Hall (not to be confused with Judson Memorial Church in Greenwich Village). Number 4 was in Central Park. Number 5 took over a Staten Island ferry. Number 6 paraded down Central Park West. The 7th was on two islands in the East River, the 8th, at the Lexington Avenue Armory. Festival number 9 occupied a vintage riverboat docked at South Street Seaport. Number 10 took place in Penn Central boxcars on a track at Grand Central Station. Number 11 was at Shea Stadium; number 12, at Floyd Bennett Field at Gateway National Park in Brooklyn. The World Trade Center was the site of the 13th. Number 14 took place on the Charles River in Cambridge. The final number 15 was at the Passenger Ship Terminal on the Hudson River. **By number 11 (1974) the casts and acknowledgments had grown to the length of movie credits. Among the many hundreds of performers were John Cage, David Tudor, Allan Kaprow, Nam June Paik, Yoko Ono, Allen Ginsberg, Ray Johnson, Joseph Beuys, John Lennon, Max Neuhaus, Yvonne Rainer, Laurie Anderson, Ornette Coleman, Geoff Hendricks, Shirley Clarke, Bob Watts, James Tenney, Meredith Monk, and Al Hansen. **For each of these festivals Charlotte Moorman published a poster; there were two versions each of numbers 1, 2, 8, and 9, for a total of nineteen. She designed the simple first three herself; number four was a collaboration with Jim McWiliams; the remaining eleven were his work. Those eleven are each signed in silver or bronze ink by Jim McWilliams. Like the festivals, the posters became larger and increasingly elaborate, with images and text in layers. Number 11 is a riot of color featuring multiple aerial views of Shea Stadium. Number 13 shows the Twin Towers from different views. If number 11 was a riot of color, number 14 is full-fledged revolution. The sequence ends with a 20-color extravaganza. **A few complete sets remain available of approximately 50 that could be assembled from Charlotte Moorman's estate. Numbers 1, 2, 8, and 9 appear in two versions. Please write or call for a complete descriptive list. Some posters also are available singly. Nearly all of these posters that might appear on the current market were folded and mailed. All of these are flat, uncreased, and unmailed, except 2b, 3, and both number 8s. Those four were folded but are unmarked and have been stored flat. Sizes range from 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches to 36 x 24 inches. Sets will be shipped in tubes.
