        The Student Voice [4 Issues, 1963-1965]

      Atlanta: Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, 1963-5. First Edition. Pamphlet. SNCC's nationally-distributed, professionally-printed monthly (later weekly) newspaper, which offered news of the African-American civil rights movement throughout the South, serving as a national recruiting and fundraising tool particularly on American campuses. Though not credited, the Voice was edited by a young Julian Bond, who had left Morehouse College in the Spring of 1961 to work full-time for SNCC, which he had helped to found a year earlier. The current issues provide graphic reportage of events in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia and the rest of the southern U.S., providing first-person coverage of some of the bloodiest confrontations of the early days of the Civil Rights movement. Despite comparatively mainstream distribution, The Student Voice (like all else from SNCC's early period) is notably uncommon in commerce and far from abundant institutionally, with a number of major North American research libraries appearing to have no holdings at all as of August 2017. This small but representative sampling, though far from comprehensive, nonetheless provides excellent insight to the work of SNCC and the Civil Rights movement generally. Four quarto issues (11" x 8-1/2"). Each issue 4pp (bifolium), printed offset with photographic illustrations. Minimal wear or evidence of use; Near Fine. Includes Vol. 3 no. 1 (April 1962); Vol. 5, nos. 1 (Jan 14, 1964); 6 (Feb 18, 1964); and 8 (Mar 3, 1964).

        it catches my heart in its hands.

      New Orleans: Loujon Press,, 1963. new & selected poems 1955-1963. introduction by john william corrington. gypsy lou series no. 1: a loujon press award book. Octavo. Original white stiff wrappers printed with orange decoration, leaves in various colours and widths. With the illustrated dust jacket incorporated into a card wallet folder, with pictoral flap over fore-edge from rear. Some illustrated and facsimile leaves. A fine copy. First and signed limited edition, first printing, one of 777 unnumbered copies, signed and dated by the author on the front free endpaper (16 February 1964). Bukowski has used yellow paint to sign this copy, rather unusually (copies are more commonly found signed in silver ink). The work collects together what Jon and Louis, the printers, considered to be Bukowski's best works since 1955. It takes its title from a line in a poem by Robinson Jeffers and on the final page the printers describe the printing process in elaborate detail. Together with the facsimile letter loosely laid in, as issued, in which Bukowki comments "I have never seen a book put together in such a way, inventive creativeness and love."

        Big Yum Yum Book

      Cleveland: Robert Crumb, 1963. Very good. 4 items: 1. A hand made mock-up, conceived by Crumb himself, containing individual photographs of each page of the manuscript (295 distinct illustrations), mounted separately (rectos only), each hand numbered on the back in green pencil (92 of them corrected), and then spiral bound together to make a book, a creation aimed at instituting copyright, and shopping publication privileges to potential publishers. 143 leaves (3 1/2" X 5" X 1 1/2" thick). Very good. The inside front cover is stamped, "This book is the property of - Dana Crumb Associates - 819 Eddy Street - San Francisco, California 54109 - Must Be Returned - Within 30 Days of Receipt." The manuscript was written, drawn and colored (beautifully executed in Prismacolor pencils) by Crumb, over 6 months in 1962 and 1963. He gifted it to his wife Dana, made up this sample in 1974, got it published in 1975 (Scrimshaw Press, San Francisco), then left this original with their lawyer Albert Morse (indeed, all the items in this lot are ex-Albert Morse). 2. Distinguishing this primary copy from any other pre- publication sample (should any other exist), is the inclusion of Dana Crumb's wood handled rubberstamp that was used to imprint the inside front cover. 3. Also present is a dummy of the hardbound book as originally conceived by Robert Crumb (black cloth, titled in silver and blue, blank pages). 4. A 1st edition of the published book in pictorial boards and jacket. From the dustjacket flap of the published book: "I drew this story when I was nineteen years old and still a virgin... Now I'm thirty years old and the book seems somewhat adolescent and immature to me. I gave the book as a gift to Dana when I first met her, as a token of my love. We got married shortly after. It has been hidden away all these years, along with some early sketchbooks of mine, and other sophomoric-romantic works done in the throes of horny passion. But now the time has come to review it to the world. I guess. My lawyer Albert Morse thinks it'll sell like hotcakes and make a lot of money. I dunno.".

        Dead Fingers Talk

      John Calder/Olympia Press, London 1963 - The uncorrected proof copy of this drug novel, which consists of an amalgam of sections from The Naked Lunch, The Soft Machine and The Ticket that Exploded, as well as some material not reproduced elsewhere. Inscribed by Burroughs "For Richard Aaron" on the half title. Also on the half title, in another hand: "M. Farmer. Reading copy. Publication date: Oct. 31st, 1963." Published at the height of Burroughs' experimentation with the cut-up technique, this volume embodies that approach, as well as anticipating the later variation of it that we now call "sampling." A good association copy: Richard Aaron was, among other things, the person who negotiated the sale of Burroughs' literary archive to Robert Altmann of Liechtenstein. There was no U.S. edition of this title. Near fine in plain green wrappers, in a very good dust jacket, which differs from the published jacket by virtue of being trimmed to a shorter height and having had the flaps trimmed as well.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1963. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. 1st edition, preceding the American. His first book. Variant binding in black cloth, top edge unstained, and copies in black were actually sold in retail stores, so it is a published issue. Near fine in near fine 1st state dustjacket (no reviews on flap). I try to deny myself delusions when I am writing, and I think this allows me to deny them to others when they refuse to keep their fantasies to themselves, and this book inspires more than its share. Our jacket's not price clipped and among the wild claims attached to Collectors in black, is that all copies were sold in price clipped jackets. And that's not the only myth attached to this issue. It's said to be rare when there are 5 copies for sale right now. It's called a trial binding, or an export issue, with no proof at all. And whether it's (likely) the 1st binding in standard Cape black cloth used while awaiting delivery of, or deciding upon, the terracotta colored cloth normally seen, or (less likely) the 2nd binding in standard Cape black used for the final sets of sheets when the terracotta had run out, or been abandoned for a while, it's not a $10,000 book. It's not a $5,000 book. And it should be wrapped in crime scene tape when it's sold to anyone guileless enough to buy one at any price beyond our price. It is, however, 30 times scarcer than the regular binding for 3 times the price here, so the math supports our premium and decrypts its relative value (Book Code).

        Confessions of an Advertising Man.

      New York: Atheneum, 1963. First edition of this seminal work on advertising. Octavo, original cloth. Warmly inscribed by the author in the year of publication on the front free endpaper, "Willis Shank from David Ogilvy with gratitude and admiration November 1963." Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. On the verso of the dust jacket there are "samples of David Ogilvy's wizardry," and it unfolds to reveal six advertisements he created. David Ogilvy was considered the "father of advertising" and a creative genius by many of the biggest global brands. First published in 1963, this seminal book revolutionized the world of advertising and became a bible for the 1960s ad generation. It also became an international bestseller, translated into 14 languages. Fizzing with Ogilvy's pioneering ideas and inspirational philosophy, it covers not only advertising, but also people management, corporate ethics, and office politics, and forms an essential blueprint for good practice in business.
