        Book of the Hopi

      Viking|~| NY: Viking. (1963). The uncorrected proof copy of this landmark volume relating the worldview of the Hopis, as compiled by Waters from the tales of thirty Hopi elders. A matter of some controversy after the fact -- some people have questioned the authenticity of the material or the qualifications of those who provided it -- this book nonetheless was profoundly influential in the Sixties, as one of the seminal volumes bringing some version of a Native American perspective and ethos to the mainstream society. This was a counterculture classic and a staple on college campuses in the late Sixties and early Seventies, thus contributing to the general push toward a more multicultural society, as well as contributing to the increasing consciousness of environmental issues, as the Hopi are depicted as living in closer harmony with the land and the natural world than was the case in mainstream American society. A bit of corner creasing and dust soiling to covers; near fine in ringbound cardstock covers. A scarce proof. . First Edition. Softcover.

Signed by the author on the title page. Mary Oliver was described by The New York Times as "far and away, [America's] best-selling poet." She has won both the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and the National Book Award in 1992. Oliver's poetry has been called an "indefatigable guide to the natural world, particularly to its lesser-known aspects" (Kumin, 1993). "Visionary as Emerson [… she is] among the few American poets who can describe and transmit ecstasy, while retaining a practical awareness of the world as one of predators and prey," reviewed The Nation. Holly Prado of Los Angeles Times Book Review noted that Oliver's work "touches a vitality in the familiar that invests it with a fresh intensity.

        Original Typed Letter Signed from Jean vanden Heuvel to John Steinbeck TOGETHER WITH John Steinbeck's Original Autograph draft reply

      New York: John Steinbeck and Jean vanden Heuvel, 1963. First edition. stapled sheets. Fine. From John Steinbeck's original files kept by him in his Manhattan Apartment: An original letter typed letter signed from Jean vanden Heuvel and Clay Felker to John Steinbeck about the television show "What's Going on Here?", SIGNED BY JEAN VANDEN HEUVEL and CLAY FELKER, TOGETHER WITH the John Steinbeck's original draft of his reply written, as was his custom, in pencil on a lined sheet of yellow paper measuring approximately 12 1/2 " by 8". The letters are stapled together for filing and each is in Fine condition. [The Producers' letter carries a pencil note at the top made by Steinbeck's Assistant "JB" (Janet Beckman)]. Jean vanden Heuvel and the former Esquire editor, Clay Felker, produced the 1963 satirical sketch comedy about the news of the day titled "What's Going on Here?" staring Roger Bowen, Peter Cook, Barbara Harris, and others. In their letter to John Steinbeck dated May 7, 1963 the Producers ask John Steinbeck to watch the show and to provide them with his reaction to it. In his reply, sent August 13, 1963 - as noted by Janet Beckman at the head of Steinbeck's draft reply, Steinbeck begins "Dear Janet / I had your letter of May 7 / regarding What's going on Here? I saw / it saturday night and again sunday. / I thought it was wonderful. Can't understand / the Tribune review." The Tribune apparently panned the show, and Steinbeck goes on to mention that "We've talked to lots of people and all / loved it.... // Good God! if television could be that / way, I, for one would have some interest / in it." Steinbeck goes on to give only one suggestion for the show and finishes his letter by writing: "Anyway I hope you will do more of / this and soon. And spare no one." Two fine letters from John Steinbeck's personal files, including John Steinbeck's draft letter written entirely in his own hand.

        Hummingbirds and Orchids of Mexico

      Mexico City: Editorial Fournier, 1963 This is a very good hardcover copy in a good only remnant of the dust jacket. The jacket front panel only survives, and it has edge-wear, creases, light soil. Grey cloth covers clean overall but some soiling to bottom of spine. Completely clean inside. First few pages have a soft vertical crease, and top right corner bumped, otherwise very good throughout. This book is effectively the first actual publication of Rafael Montes de Oca's great 19th century work. He was unable to arrange publication in his lifetime, and only the chance appearance of a portfolio of his prints about 75 years after his death, made it possible in 1963. This book was published as a limited numbered edition of 3000 copies: 1500 in English and 1500 in Spanish. Editing and foreword by Carolina Amor de Fournier. Introduction and texts on the hummingbirds by Rafael Martin del Campo. English translation by Norman Pelham Wright. 59 spectacular colored plates reproduced from original watercolors in the Galería de Arte Mexicano, México, D.F. painted by Rafael Montes de Oca from 1874-1878. A beautiful production. 16" high X 12" wide, 34 pages of text.. Limited Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good.

        American Folk Blues Festival, Original, Vintage, 1963, German Concert Poster, A0 Format

      1963. American Folk Blues Festival, Original Vintage Concert Poster, Sportpalast, Berlin, Oct. 12 1963, produced by Horst Lippmann, designed by Gunther Kieser, with the Michel+Kieser imprint to the upper left margin. Huge A0 Format, 46.5" by 39", (118 cm by 99 cm) the poster is about fine, never been folded, with touch of wear to bottom right and top left margin, a clean closed tear to bottom edge has been professionally repaired with archival white tape to the verso. This striking black and white poster is one of the finest that Kieser designed for the AFBF and the all-star lineup of blues musicians featured in the second year of the festival was arguably the strongest ever assembled for the tour. Uncommon in the large A0 Format, it is very unusual to find the poster without folds and is scarce, thus. Stored and shipped rolled in a mailing tube. 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. First held in 1962, over the next decade, working with the well-connected Chicago bluesman, composer and bassist Willie Dixon, Lippmann & Rau presented a who’s who of American urban and country blues artists for the first time to European audiences, with successful concerts in England, France and Germany. Early 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.. 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 second presentation of the influential American Folk Blues Festival, in collector’s condition and very scarce in the large format without factory folds. J1811 .

      (RUSCHA, EDWARD). Ruscha, Edward. TWENTYSIX GASOLINE STATIONS - A CHARMING SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY FROM ED RUSCHA. Signed Presentation Copy from the Artist. Los Angeles. 1963 (1968).: Self-Published, Second Edition 1/500. 12mo. Printed Wrappers with Glassine. Artist's Book. Near Fine./Fine.. np (48pp), 26 b&w illustrations. Edward Ruscha's 1963 travelogue of decaying Americana, "Twentysix Gasoline Stations" is a deft photographic documentation of the iconic, then-vanishing roadside rest stops between his hometown of Oklahoma City and his newfound promised land of Los Angeles. A bright, handsome example of the uncommon 1968 second edition of the artist's landmark first book (entry B1 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999" which is also cited on page 140 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", and pages 198-201 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book") limited to a mere five hundred copies bearing the SIGNED PRESENTATION "For Pat - (check Jackrabbit, Arizona) / Best Wishes, Ed / 1969" in the year of publication in blue ink on the dedication page. American actress Patricia Quinn is perhaps best known for her role as Alice in "Alice's Restaurant", and from whom we obtained this significant tome directly. The matte white covers show a slight margin of light soiling to along the bottom edge, but none of the fading to the red lettering on the spine typically associated with this title. The publisher's fragile glassine wrapper is bright, fresh, and beautifully preserved.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1963 True First Edition in Black Boards. Crown 8vo, pp. 283. An exception copy of what is likely the original trial or advance binding preceding the usual brown cloth. In all likelihood a miniscule number of these black cloth bindings were distributed. Judging from the handful that have turned up over the last decade, perhaps as few as a couple of dozen. A fine copy in a very fine, bright price-clipped dustwrapper [All copies of the black binding have had their wrappers price-clipped]. Curiously there is the slightest variance in ink colour in the dustwrapper of this issue, more cyan & less magenta perhaps but there it is, none-the-less. Likely a function of the earliest part of the press run being responsible for the variation. A very fine exceptional copy of Fowles's breakthrough novel.. 1st Edition.
