Silverstein, Shel
Harper & Row Publishers, New York, 1964. First edition with all the first issue points to both the book and dust jacket. Octavo, original illustrated boards. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "For Betsey- With Love Shel Silverstein." Very good in a very good price-clipped first-issue dust jacket with the full torso picture of Shel Silverstein, with hair, covering top left half of back of the dust jacket, three reviews of Lafcadio, by Kirkus. The New York Times and Publisher's Weekly. One of the rarest modern children's book, exceptionally scarce in this condition and signed. One of the most widely interpreted and best-selling children's books of all time, The Giving Tree has sold over ten million copies since its first appearance in 1964. The book has been described as "one of the most divisive books in children's literature" for the various interpretations inspired by the relationship between the selfless female giving tree and the human boy who benefits from her gifts as he grows through adulthood into old age. Throughout the picture book, the boy benefits at all stages of life from the tree's gifts with little regard for the tree's well-being in return. This relationship has been interpreted as a representation of the relationship between man and nature, mother and child, and as the "Christian ideal of unconditional love" (Leonard, 2005).

[ARAMCO].
32 pp.The Arabic Superman issue of the Aramco World Magazine, with a lovely illustration of Superman on the front and Batman and Robin on the back. An included article explains the history of these Arabic counterparts of these American superheroes. In 1964 the Arabic Superman was introduced into the Middle East operating under the guise of Nabil Fawzi instead of Clark Kent, followed a year later by Sobhi (Batman) and Zakkour (Robin). The comics of course read from right to left, as does the "S" on the costume of Superman. The article seems to be an important source on these Arabic comics. Other articles cover David Roberts, Cotton Castle, the history of Aramco and the journey of father Abd al-Masih. A fine copy.

Berrigan, Ted (ed.)
1964. Side-stapled, 13 issues (no. 12 was not produced). C, a mimeographed magazine from Ted Berrigan's C Press, borrowed the production example of the recently published one-off magazine, The Censored Review, and featured the work of the editor and his Tulsa friends, now based in New York: Dick Gallup, Ron Padgett, and Joe Brainard. Berrigan wrote in 1964:". the first issue of 'C' was deliberately put together by me to reflect the SIMILARITY of the poetry, since I felt the differences to be obvious, and the NEWNESS of such a point of view as we (I) had.(Where I got the title is a secret, but it really isn't). (I wanted a name without connotations and so, while thinking about Marcel Duchamp, one day said to myself, 'A' 'B' 'C' 'Voila!' and there is was. 'C' 'SEE' 'SEA' 'C# #(AD INFINITUM)'.)."C, no. 4 was the Edwin Denby issue, which features a silk-screened cover (front and back) by Andy Warhol. The process of making the cover for this issue signifies an important moment in the history of Warhol's craft; it was the first time the artist used Polaroid photographs as the basis for his silkscreen portraits. (For a detailed discussion on this matter see Reva Wolf, Andy Warhol, Poetry, and Gossip in the 1960s.) Berrigan continues:"Andy made a silkscreen of two of the photos, and supervised its application on to the paper, while it was applied in turn by me, Gerry [Malanga], Pat Padgett, Sandy [Berrigan], most of the covers being done by Pat. The idea was for every cover to be different, to utilize inexperience to produce 'happenings.' "(Ted Berrigan. "Some Notes about 'C.'" Unp … [Click Below for Full Description]

(SOVIET-AFGHAN WAR.) ESPOSITO, Vincent J., Brigadier-General (ed.).
New York: Frederick A. Praeger, , 1964. Two volumes landscape folio. Original grey buckram-backed, black cloth boards, title in gilt on false black spine labels, and debossed to front boards together with the West Point arms embossed in gilt. Text printed in blue, numerous maps in grey with dispositions in red and blue. A little rubbed, spine panels flaked to the point of illegibility, front endpapers a little soiled, the text-block of the second volume burst at the bottom edge, and the boards split, by the penetration of a stray round, overall in sound "relic" condition. A remarkable copy of this classic work, first published in 1959. Inscribed on the front free endpaper; "To His Royal Highness Prince Brigadier Abdul Wali on the occasion of your visit to The United States Military Academy, D. V. Bennett, Major General, USA, 11 March 1968". The set was presented as a memento to the Sandhurst-trained deputy commander of the Afghan army, also the son-in-law of King Zahir Shah, on his visit to North America in 1968-9, and subsequently liberated by a Russian soldier as a souvenir of the "Russian invasion of"/"intervention in" Afghanistan in 1979 with his inscription beneath; "Found on entry to the army headquarters by Chief Lieutenant Breusenko, Kabul, December 1979 [our translation]". An evocative vestige from this endlessly troubled region, during the period often referred to as the Soviet Union's Vietnam War.

dsh. [Houédard, Dom Sylvester]
Openings Press, 1964. 41 x 36 in. Linocut printed on craft paper by Simon Verity. "Openings Wallpoem 1." Described in a contemporary Openings Press price sheet (the press co-founded by dsh and John Furnival): "sandrocktide by dom Sylvester Houédard handcut in Lino and handprinted by Simon Verity - limited edition of 50. price 1 gn., $5, DM 18.-, 20 NF." Printed on at least two types of paper stock with at least two trim sizes. Richard Saltoun Gallery, representative of dsh's work, notes 5 copies extant. This would make 6. The scarcity of this work may be explained by the fact that Openings Press would typically announce a specific edition size, produce a portion of that number at the outset, with the intention to come back and complete the run at a later date. This practice could easily result in a considerable difference between announced and completed edition sizes. Sand Rock Tide is an important and beautiful work by British poet, artist, scholar, and Benedictine monk, Dom Sylevester Houédard (1924-92). He is widely regarded as one of the foremost practitioners and theorists of concrete poetry and his work is the focus of two recent book publications from Occasional Papers and Richard Saltoun Gallery. Signed and inscribed "much luv" in pencil by the poet, this is from the library of Anselm Hollo. Folded several times, very good condition, details available upon request. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

This beautiful book, with over 100 instructive illustration, is revolutionary in its approach because: 1) It leads the cook infallibly from the buying and handling of raw ingredients, through each essential step of a recipe, to the final creation of a delicate confection. 2) It breaks down the classic cuisine into a logical sequence of themes and variations rather than presenting and endless and diffuse catalogue or recipes; the focus is on key recipes which form the backbone of French cookery and which lend themselves to an infinite number of elaborations, bound to increase anyone's culinary repertoi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Saxon, Dan (editor)
Dan Saxon, New York City, 1964. 22 pages. Side-stapled stiff blue wraps. Light age wear to edges. Link to photos on request. Extremely rare volume in one of the most important publications to emerge from the mimeo revolution. No copies in WorldCat. To quote Brian Cassidy Books: "Editor Dan Saxon distributed Ditto (spirit duplicating) masters at the Cafe Le Metro's regular poetry readings on NYC's Lower East Side. Saxon then ran the issues off from the masters, which reproduced the holograph of each of the poets themselves. These were compiled and then handed out at the following reading. Though a handful were sent for deposit at a few select libraries, and another small handful reserved for bookstore sales (most prominently at Robert Wilson's Phoenix Book Shop), most copies were privately distributed among the contributors and participants. And with runs typically 75 copies or fewer, copies are now quite rare." [Attributes: Soft Cover]

FARKAS, Mary (Editor)
New York: First Zen Institute of America, 1964. First edition. Near fine.. An unbroken, nearly ten-year run of this valuable record of early Zen activity in the U.S. The First Zen Institute was founded in 1930 by Sokeian Sasaki (1882-1945), the first Zen master to settle permanently in the U.S. Sasaki was instrumental in introducing Zen to this country (Alan Watts was an early pupil). When he died shortly after his release from the internment camp at Ellis Island following WW2, his student Mary Farkas was among those who continued his work. In 1954, Farkas began publishing ZEN NOTES, and continued for another ten years. Though each issue was brief, the periodical functioned as an important early conduit between Buddhist practitioners in the States. Additionally noteworthy for an early appearance by Gary Snyder; "Anyone with Yama-Bushi Tendancies," a short essay on his summer spent in a National Forest Service fire-tower appears in the Nov. 1954 issue and anticipates the themes and subjects of his first verse collection, RIPRAP. This boxed edition was likely assembled for ZEN NOTES' 10th anniversary (it's the second such set we've handled). Individual issues remain scarce. Runs, especially early ones, are rare.

Dahl, Roald
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1964. First edition. Fine in about fine jacket.. First issue, in first issue dust jacket, of the great chocolatier fantasy of desire fulfilled, a beautiful copy. Dahl's Dickensian tale of a good-hearted waif rescued from poverty by literature's most stylish factory owner, drawing powerfully on the author's remembered childhood miseries and later post-war deprivation. Charlie's wish for a Golden Ticket, more than the uncomplicated greed animating the book's less virtuous children, is an unfathomable longing for sweetness, for a taste of wonder in a grey and oppressive world. Meanwhile, Wonka's chaotic energy drives the story to its greatest heights. As the walled chocolate garden's grotesqueries reward a child-reader's basest narrative instincts, each unworthy child is punished according to his or her character and just desserts, in sequences as merciless as a medieval morality play. For these disquieting episodes, and for the sheer material lavishness of Charlie's ultimate reward, the novel was derided by Eleanor Cameron as "one of the most tasteless books ever written for children, " no better than a television show; Ursula Le Guin concurred, likening its effects to "a tiny psychological fugue, very like that provided by comic books." Children continue, lawlessly, to adore it.

Used with wear and tear. Heinemann 1964. Signing events were rare in those days, not like today. These early signed copies were usually to friends and family, before they were even released into book stores. You can tell by the style of signature and handwriting what are early signed copies. With a tipped in newspaper article as shown. The Wehlburg's were neighbors of the Smiths in Wilbur's youth. He couldn't remember anymore about them other than they ask him to personally inscribe a copy on release of the book. As friends of his parents, not him, it was a somewhat awkward obligation as we all can related. I can say from personal experience Wilbur is a kind man and loyal to his fans and would have appreciated the Wehlburg's request, even as friends of his parents. We are selling a special Wilbur collection on behalf of a client. Wilbur will be releasing his memoirs this Spring so now it the time to invest again. From early 2000's until 2011 we were the world's largest dealer of Wilbur's early and signed books. It was our privilege to meet him privately, including at his home, to have him verify signed books and to line-sign books for me only (Niso would not allow the practice for long). He was concerned about the integrity of those dealers selling his signed books and it was a great honor to become friends with him for a time. Him and Niso also bought rarer copies as well as other memorabilia from me like film scripts. After the rarest titles, like this one, were sold into collections, I moved onward in my book dealing focus. One of the secrets of the trade I can share wit … [Click Below for Full Description]

These early signed copies were usually to friends and family, before they were even released into book stores. You can tell by the style of signature and handwriting what are early signed copies. This was to Daniel's father during a stay in the hospital. Wilbur told me he didn't like the man. (This was in the context of buying the book from me due to its personal association inscription). I'm sure this was a joke as we sometimes make of our in-laws. The Sunbird is Wilbur's favorite book and the emblem features on his personal letterhead and as a logo. I think the story was based on one of his earliest exploration adventures, something he did between writing books. We are selling a special Wilbur collection on behalf of a client.
