        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.

[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.

This book is so close to appearing new and untouched that it is mouth-watering. However, its minuscule faults are as follows: tiny bumps at the head and tail of the spine have caused the slightest of creasing to the dust jacket (and does not affect the binding), and there is a bit of scattered scuffing to about an inch of the dust jacket along the front edge at the spine. The new-like condition of the binding, boards and pages is absolutely astounding. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        C: A Journal of Poetry. Whole numbers 1 (May 1963) and 2 (June 1963)

      Lorenz Gude/Ted Berrigan 1963 - Side-stapled tall (legal-sized) mimeographed wrappers. The first two issues of thirteen published (there was no number 12) of one of the most important mimeo magazines of the 1960s, and a crucial link between the first and second generations of the New York School poets. Richard Hell called C "the greatest literary magazine of the twentieth century. you could extrapolate everything worthwhile in the universe from its thirteen issues, and you'd have a great time, giggling." Originally a vehicle for the Tulsa core of Berrigan, Ron Padgett, Dick Gallup and Joe Brainard, the journal also published John Ashbery, Barbara Guest, Frank O'Hara, Kenneth Koch and many others. Always a fragile publication, carelessly assembled to begin with, when found issues of C are usually not in great shape and issues can vary from copy to copy depending on who was manning the stapler at the time. These copies were collated against Jed Birmingham's realitystudio C Press Index. Condition notes follow. Number 1: edges worn, last two sheets detached and third from last almost detached, collates complete. Number 2: some stains and soiling to covers, stapled twice (total of six staples), last sheet detached, one poem ("Sally") not present compared to Birmingham. All issues of C are fairly uncommon, these first two are quite rare. Clay & Phillips, pp. 160-65. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Japan--a chapter of image

      1963. First Edition . Signed. SMITH, W. Eugene. JapanÂ… a Chapter of Image. (Tokyo: Toppan Printing Co., 1963). Large quarto, original blue paper boards. $3000.First edition of this photographic essay on JapanÂ’s industrialization, inscribed by W. Eugene Smith on the title page: “To Jim, Well, here this one is—all crept over with errors and faults, and a few passable things, IÂ’m learning.—Gene.”From 1961-1962, W. Eugene Smith worked for Hitachi Corporation in Japan, ostensibly to document the companyÂ’s activities. Instead, Smith created this photo essay that emphasizes the impact of rapid industrialization on Japanese laborers. This was SmithÂ’s first exposure to the theme that he would build upon 10 years later in his poignant work about mercury poisoning in Minamata, Japan. In this essay, Smith includes for the first time the phrase that would later become closely identified with his work and artistic philosophy, and was chosen as the title of the famous 1970 retrospective of his photographs: “Let truth be the prejudice.” Only very slight sunning and minor wear to extremities of boards, small tape repair to front board. Photographs lovely and fine. An extremely good copy.
