There my mother or the ladies who helped her, Mrs. Dorothy Lockhart or Mrs. Newman or sometimes Mrs. Rachel Ward, caused a racket of pots and pans.

        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.

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.

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

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.

Avec bulletin de lancement illustré de 4 pages sur vergé et carte de souscription. Laissons la parole à l'audacieux éditeur, grand novateur en petit pays:"Cette plaquette-estampe (.) est une tentative de lier intimement trois vues sur la matière: l'écriture de Francis Ponge, la photographie de Henriette Grindat et le dessin de Albert-Edgar Yersin".Ce bel ouvrage est constitué de deux feuillets pliés avec faux-titre, titre, préface de Ponge et justification, complétés par l'oeuvre elle-même, imprimée en sépia sur carte poétique de 75 x 53 dépliante à la façon géographique en neuf parties. Elle présente quatre textes du poète, trois en fac-similé autographe et un en typographie, intimement mêlé de graphisme et de photographie par surimpression et grignotement stratégique des lisières verbales ? Le texte inédit du bulletin de lancement est anonyme; est-elle de Ponge, Yersin, de l'éditeur ou du second partenaire associé à la chose, puisqu'elle prolonge une exposition à la galerie Bonnier.On retrouvera un peu de cette audace dans "Le Rhin" de Victor Hugo, superbement ymagé de burins polychromes par le même Yersin pour l'éditeur Gonin en 1976.Les deux ont peu à peu disparu du bibliotope romand.Quand au tirage de tête sur japon de cet ouvrage du trio, on peut non seulement en rêver mais essayer de demander, on ne sait jamais.
