         You Only Live Twice.

      London Jonathan Cape March 1964 - First edition, second issue, autograph dedication signed by Ian Fleming on front free endpaper, 8vo, slight toning to front free endpaper and extreme edges of text-block, publisher's boards (Gilbert's Type A) blocked in silver and gilt, dust-jacket by Richard Chopping, some browning and edge-wear. Inscribed by the author: "To Xavier Koike from Ian Fleming" Xavier Koike (b. 1922) was a half-English/half-Japanese British citizen who unluckily moved to Japan just in time for the outbreak of World War II, at which point he was arrested under suspicion of espionage and detained in one of the Japanese prisons for political enemies. He remained under arrest for two and a half years and was only released after Japan's surrender, at which point, still a prisoner, he was called upon to act as a translator during the tribunals of suspected Japanese war criminals. When it became clear he was an interned British citizen he was immediately released by the Allies and went on to work for the Supreme Court, helping to oversee the administration of Japan under the new American occupation. At the same time Koike was also engaged by GHQ, though in what capacity we do not know and it was seemingly during this time that he met Ian Fleming. The two became correspondents and according to his family Koike provided Fleming with information regarding Japan's administrative processes and agencies, as well as suggestions for locations in and around Tokyo to be used in You Only Live Twice. Xavier Koike subsequently wrote two books, English Crowns from 1649 (1977) and Large Size Paper Money of the United States (c.2000). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Freak's Literary Tertiary

      Unpag. (36 pp.) collection of mimeographed texts and drawings on various colors and stocks of paper, primarily a compilation of past issues of Hawkins' other serials, "Freak" and "The Carbuncle", topics include the derivation of the word "dike", Synanon, violence on television, media, politics, and letters to the editor. Illustrated. Oblong 4to. Orig. wrpps., stapled and tape-bound. Some very minor toning and soiling. San Francisco (Ahab Press of Jackson Square West) 1964-1965. Tom Hawkins moved to San Francisco in the 1960s to join the Beat Poets, and began self-publishing after his work was rejected by local Beat publications. After he retired as a poet and writer, Hawkins and his wife moved to Fort Bragg, where they lived in poverty for most of the 1980s. Hawkins engaged in petty scams and thefts, and used various disguises. In 1988 he murdered his wife, and several days later set fire to their home and drove himself off of a cliff. Hawkins was unmasked as the author of the Wanda Tinasky letters, a group of comic and playful letters sent to the Mendocino Commentary and the Anderson Valley Advertiser in the 1980's, ostensibly by a bag lady named Wanda Tinasky who lived under a bridge in Mendocino County. Many speculated that the letters were actually written by the novelist Thomas Pynchon, until "literary detective" Don Foster matched up biographical details, snippets of poetry, and even the actual typewriter used. As of October 2017, WorldCat locates only four holdings in North America.

         La Divina Commedia. Illustrazioni di Dalì

Con 100 tavole fuori testo a colori riproducenti le tavole originali di Dalì, tirate a Parigi su carta di Rives sotto la direzione di Raymond Jacquet. Perfetto esemplare, editorialmente a fogli sciolti. Fasce di controllo editoriali conservate. Firme autografe di Dalì agli occhietti dei volumi. Prima edizione italiana, tirata a 3.044 esemplari (esemplare privo di numerazione ma dei 2.900 impressi dalla Stamperia Valdonega su carta a mano dei fratelli Magnani di Pescia). "Il nostro illustratore, come talvolta non sdegna, mercé una oggettiva equivalenza del tema figurato al poetico, di piegarsi al canone della interpretabilità evidente, così ama altre volte ritrarsi nell'ermetismo di un rapporto simbolico o addirittura arbitrario fra i due temi. Il contatto del testo di Dante col pennello di Dalì non è stato cogente, ma sprigionante e inventivo". (dalla prefazione di Giovanni Nencioni). L'edizione originale illustrata dalle tavole di Dalì era apparsa a Parigi presso Les Heures Claires fra il 1959 e il 1963, dopo il naufragio del progetto iniziale di un'edizione finanziata dal Poligrafico dello Stato, dovuto alla decisione, da parte del governo italiano, di recedere dalla committenza al grande artista.

SIMPLY A BEAUTIFUL bOOK, a lovely example of a TRUE FIRST EDITION, in collector's condition. -- SUPER RARE Find. Ideal GIFT for any Silverstein collector. ====> ABOUT THE GIVING TREE : Editorial Reviews : To say that this particular apple tree is a 'giving tree' is an understatement. In Shel Silverstein's popular tale of few words and simple line drawings, a tree starts out as a leafy playground, shade provider, and apple bearer for a rambunctious little boy. Making the boy happy makes the tree happy, but with time it becomes more challenging for the generous tree to meet his needs. When he asks for money, she suggests that he sell her apples. When he asks for a house, she offers her branches for lumber. When the boy is old, too old and sad to play in the tree, he asks the tree for a boat. She suggests that he cut her down to a stump so he can craft a boat out of her trunk. He unthinkingly does it. At this point in the story, the double-page spread shows a pathetic solitary stump, poignantly cut down to the heart the boy once carved into the tree as a child that said 'M.E. + T.' 'And then the tree was happy. but not really.' When there's nothing left of her, the boy returns again as an old man, needing a quiet place to sit and rest. The stump offers up her services, and he sits on it. "And the tree was happy." While the message of this book is unclear (Take and take and take? Give and give and give? Complete self-sacrifice is good? Complete self-sacrifice is infinitely sad?), Silverstein has perhaps deliberately left the book open to interpretation. All ages / Karin Snelson ;; Book Description 'Once there was a tree.and she loved a little boy.' So begins a story of unforgettable perception, beautifully written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein. Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk.and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older he began to want more from the tree, and the tree gave and gave and gave. This is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation. Shel Silverstein has created a moving parable for readers of all ages that offers an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return. -- Additional photos upon request.

         Original Poster for the SF Dancers' Workshop Super Jam

      [SF Dancers' Workshop] [ca. 1964], [SF] - 8.5 by 14 inches [22 x 36 cm]. Offset printed red on green stock. Light horizontal fold to middle, some toning to edges, else a very good example. "Printed by the Neighborhood Arts Program/ S.F. Art Commission" vertically along right edge. No examples located in OCLC and in our experience any non sound recording material related to the Tape Center is scarce. When the San Francisco Tape Music Center moved to its most significant location at 321 Divisadero in 1963, cofounder Morton Subotnick invited dancer Anna Halprin to move her Dancers' Workshop into extra space at the center. "It was no accident that Halprin shared the Divisadero space, since she used Tape Music Center Composers and they used her and her dancers." Halprin says of the arrangement: "It was a wonderful time for a kind of Bauhaus type of experimentation by multidisciplinary artists working together. As a matter of fact, that word 'multidisciplinary art" was really invented during that period."Founded in 1962, The San Francisco Tape Music Center (later the Mills College Tape Music Center) was at the forefront of experimental electronic music on the West Coast. The Center grew out of an improvised music studio created by composers Ramon Sender, Terry Riley, Pauline Oliveros, and others. The original mission was to form a "nonprofit cultural and educational corporation, the aim of which was to present concerts and offer a place to learn about work within the tape music medium." The mission later expanded to include electronic pieces that could be performed live with light projections and interactive tape systems. In 1966 the center moved to Mills College, where it was renamed the Center for Contemporary Music with a roster of students and faculty that was (and continues to be) a Who's Who of the musical avant-garde including Steve Reich, Anthony Braxton, and Iannas Xenakis.

      N.p.: N.d. c. 1964 - Partial maquette of Harry Callahan's first book, eventually published by El Mochuelo Gallery, Santa Barbara, 1964. Four unbound signatures totaling 52 pages, with 27 photographic prints taped to the pages or in some cases loose. Copious publication notes in an unknown hand, but likely the publisher David van Riper. All images from the fourth and final section of the book, corresponding almost exactly to the published sequence. Plate 91 is a variant image noted "different" in the maquette. Includes plates 89-98, 107, 110-118, 120-126. While the exact photographic process is unknown, the images appear to be copy or work prints on silver paper; many of the photographs are noticeably darker than their reproductions in the book. Acquired by the original owner from publisher David Van Riper when he moved from Chicago to Santa Barbara to start the short-lived El Mochuelo Gallery. Some prints loose, a few edge creases; very good overall in unbound sheets. The only maquette - partial or orherwise - I have seen of one of the seminal photobooks of the 20th century.

         The Loved One (Original screenplay for the 1965 film, crew member copy with shooting schedule)

      Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], Beverly Hills, CA 1964 - Draft script for the 1965 film, based on the 1948 novel by Evelyn Waugh, legendarily co-written by Terry Southern and Christopher Isherwood. Deluxe working script belonging to uncredited crew member William Todd Mason, with his name and phone number in holograph ink on the title page, and some brief penciled notations on three pages. Laid in is a corner stitched, three page Staff and Crew list, with two name additions in holograph red ink on the second page.Included is a vintage studio still photograph from the film.An early draft, issued nearly two years prior to the film's October 1965 release, with substantial differences from the finished film.The sister film to "Dr. Strangelove," and in the eyes of many, just as much a masterpiece of exquisitely wrought black humor. Made in the US, but in a dense, British-American style.
