        Two: ten lithographs by Arnold Belkin; poems by Jack Hirschman

      Los Angeles: Zora Gallery, 1964 - 10 signed, numbered original lithographs and 10 poems + title page (in red & black) & colophon (all printed one side only on Arches and Rives paper). 22 loose sheets. 38 x 56 cm (oversquare). Plates printed in one, two, and three colors; stones & zinc plates effaced. Stated edition of 108 numbered copies. This set unnumbered on the colophon; the signed prints bear mixed numbers from 40 through 48; at least one is marked "Artist's proof." Printed at the Plantin Press. Reportedly, the full publication never was completed. The colophon says the book was bound by the Schuberth Bindery in San Francisco, but that firm's current owner thinks the job never materialized. The "brown vinyl ring-binder" in one OCLC record sounds nothing like Schuberth's fine work. Copy 24 at the Archives for New Poetry at UCSD is loose sheets like this one. This is Hirschman's third book, but Belkin's large, full-sheet lithographs with their blend of figuration and densely organic abstraction are the real focus. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        HARRY CALLAHAN: PHOTOGRAPHS

      El Mochuelo Gallery, Santa Barbara, CA 1964 - np, 126 duotone plates. With a bibliography by Bernard Karpel. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Published in a stated edition of fifteen hundred copies, this exquisite 1964 Harry Callahan monograph is notoriously scarce as it has been widely reported that only half of these were actually ever bound for sale. A tight and bright, most handsome example (cited on pages 202-203 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", page 160 of "From Fair to Fine: 20th Century Photography Books That Matter", and pages 168-169 of "The Book of 101 Books") marred only by the typical browning of the glue binding the endpapers to the boards - as is the case with every copy that we've ever handled - in a well-preserved, lightly-scuffed slipcase.

        Herzog.

      New York: The Viking Press, 1964. First edition of the author's second of three National Book Award winning novels, which was and remains an unprecedented literary accomplishment. Octavo, original blue cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light toning to the spine. Inscribed by the author to his editor on the front free endpaper, "For Aaron and Linda, affectionately, Saul." The recipient was Bellow's editor Aaron Asher and his wife Linda. Asher also edited Philip Roth, Arthur Miller and many others. A significant association. A novel complex, compelling, absurd and realistic, Herzog became a classic almost as soon as it was published in 1964. In it Saul Bellow tells the tale of Moses E. Herzog, a tragically confused intellectual who suffers from the breakup of his second marriage, the general failure of his life and the specter of growing up Jewish in the middle part of the 20th century. He responds to his personal crisis by sending out a series of letters to all kinds of people. The letters in total constitute a thoughtful examination of his own life and that which has occurred around him. What emerges is not always pretty, but serves as gritty foundation for this absorbing novel. "A masterpiece" (The New York Times).

        Grapefruit (First Edition, inscribed at the Judson Church Gallery opening, 1966)

      Tokyo: Wuntemaum Press, 1964. First Edition. First Edition. One of 500 copies printed, preceding the UK edition by four years. INSCRIBED by Yoko Ono on the first blank: "To Helen, / 1966, opening / Judson Church Gallery / NYC, NY / Yoko Ono." The author, poet, and conceptual artist's first book. The inscription almost certainly refers to opening night of "The Stone" on March 10th, 1966, a collaborative environment conducted by Ono's then-husband, Anthony Cox. Michael Mason supplied sound forms, Jon Hendricks supplied "air", and Jeff Perkins a film message. For her part, Ono contributed "Eye Bags": black bags which participants crawled inside of and could see through, although they could not be seen within by spectators--in effect the inverse of a one-way mirror. Ono's first book, a groundbreaking conceptual piece made up of "event scores," series of actions, ideas, or instructions that take the place of physical works of art and can be performed by another individual (an example being the piece titled, "Painting to Exist Only When It's Copied or Photographed: Let people copy or photograph your paintings. Destroy the originals.") While a handful of signed copies have have shown up in commerce in the last couple of decades, most have generic inscriptions referencing a season, e.g. 1965, Autumn. This is the only copy we have encountered with a contemporary inscription that can be pinpointed to a time and place-and most importantly, one of Ono's own installations. Very Good or better in original white perfect bound wrappers. Wrappers lightly soiled and foxed, with some of the usual production wrinkle at the spine. Still, a tight, square copy. In a lovely black cloth clamshell box with a leather spine label titled in gilt. Munroe and Hendricks, Yes Yoko Ono, pages 82-83, 313. Hendricks, Fluxus Codex, pages 418-419. Celant, Book As Artwork, page 61.

        Heavily illustrated three-page letter to Jon and Louise Webb

      Los Angeles: N.p., 1964. Typed letter signed, and colorfully illustrated, from Charles Bukowski to one of his earliest publishers, Jon and Louise Webb. With holograph corrections in green ink by Bukowski throughout. Affixed to the letter are 4 multi-colored abstract drawings in marker and paint, rendered on oddly-cut pieces of paper and applied variously at the margins and within the text. With the original mailing envelope. An early and quite meaty three page letter, dated October 31, 1964, written from the home Bukowski rented on De Longpre Avenue in Los Angeles. The letter contains a wealth of content about the author from those days (and from his perspective), well before he became a celebrity in counterculture or otherwise. He complains about his job at the post office, about a string of whores running him through the wringer, and the race track. Bukowski openly discusses his feelings about his young daughter Marina Louise, and spends two paragraphs complaining about Sheri Martinelli (his first publisher), between which he has drawn a bare-breasted portrait of her. Included also is considerable discussion regarding the apparently endless trouble the Webb's were experiencing, as well as the anticipation of the 3100 copies of Bukowski's second major collection of poems, the soon-to-be-published "Crucifix In A Deathhand." Considerable drunken rambling is present as well, along with a brief poem on the final page. One of the finest Bukowski letters we have seen or handled: early, with historical, literary, and personal content, along with the author's typically dazzling artwork. 8.5 x 11 inches, executed on white letter stock, rectos only. Old horizontal folds long smoothed out, with a few faint glue smudges around the affixed artwork, a few tiny stains. Quite bright and supple, Near Fine overall.

        Typed Letter Signed, with Vim and Vigor

      1964. May 15, 1964. Hall of Famer Musial ("Stan the Man") played baseball for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1941 to 1963 (minus one year in the Navy); in February, 1964, he began a three-year term as Consultant to the President on Physical Fitness, under President Lyndon Johnson. This (form) letter, written on White House stationery, addressed to the Public Relations Director of the L.A. Dodgers, and signed by Musial as "Stan," asks for help, "since we don't have funds for advertising" in publicizing "two new books -- Vim for girls, Vigor for boys -- which explain how important [exercise] can be to their future." Included here are copies of Vim and Vigor, "A Complete Exercise Plan for Girls/Boys 12 to 18." [Washington, D.C.: President's Council on Physical Fitness, 1964]. Each is 24 pages, leading off with a Presidential Message from Johnson and concluding with a message from President Kennedy "prepared especially for this book in November, 1963." The 50+ year old advice is surprisingly current, and the advice across the two genders is surprisingly balanced. The letter is fine; the booklets are very good (Vim) and near fine (Vigor) in stapled wrappers. An example of the youthful President Kennedy's foresight in his emphasis on physical fitness, and the subsequent President taking up the mantle to continue his effort with the help of one of the athletic superstars of the day. First Edition. No Binding.

        A complete set of 'Uncle' books: Uncle; Uncle Cleans Up; Uncle And His Detective; Uncle And The Treacle Trouble; Uncle And Claudius The Camel; Uncle And The Battle For Badgertown.

      1964 - 8vo. 6 volumes; bound in salmon pink, bright blue, yellow, red, turquoise and Air Force blue linson boards with spines lettered gilt, with pictorial endpapers in all but the final volume, preserved in white pictorial dustwrappers and purple plush-lined cloth-covered slipcase with ribbon pull; pp. [viii], 9-160; [viii], 9-176; [x], 11-172; [x], 11-184; [x], 11-192; [x], 11-171; with line illustrations throughout by Quentin Blake; externally fine with light speckling to the edges of volumes 3, 4 and 5, internally clean and sound throughout, protected by remarkably fresh dustwrappers, 3 of which are unclipped, with a slight horizontal crease to top edge of upper panel of 'Uncle', a faint score mark to upper panel of 'Treacle Trouble', a couple of inconspicuous horizontal scratches to spines, and minor rubbing to upper fore-edge fold of 'Claudius the Camel'; scarce as a set in this condition. First editions; each volume signed in ink by Quentin Blake to the title-page. A few of the 'Uncle' titles are ridiculously elusive which makes assembling a set, in uniform condition, a very difficult task. This popular series of book about the pompous, fabulously wealthy, purple dressing-gown-wearing elephant called Uncle have inspired a cult following across the world. Although ostensibly a "grand, crazy comedy" the stories, it has been claimed, have multiple layers of meaning with some reading it as an exposà on the hypocrisy of society and others a critique of capitalism (Eccleshare. 1001 Children's Books).

        Delights and Prejudices.

      New York: Atheneum, 1964. First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by the author on the half title page, "Good eating James Beard." Fine in a very good dust jacket with light wear to the spine tips. In this culinary journey, James Beard takes us back to the earliest days of his childhood when he started developing his precocious palate and lifelong "taste memories"--the ability to savor and remember the tastes and sensations of food. His enthusiasm for flavors, no matter how bold, would define Beard for the rest of his life. From devouring a raw onion as an infant to scouring the globe in search of local flavors as an adult, Delights and Prejudices is full of witty and illuminating stories that open a door into the world of one of America's first and perhaps greatest epicures. Packed with more than one hundred fifty recipes, including corn chili souffl?, fried oysters, and peach preserves, this very personal account of his life is as close to an autobiography as Beard ever penned.

        A complete set of 'Uncle' books: Uncle; Uncle Cleans Up; Uncle And His Detective; Uncle And The Treacle Trouble; Uncle And Claudius The Camel; Uncle And The Battle For Badgertown.

      8vo. 6 volumes; bound in salmon pink, bright blue, yellow, red, turquoise and Air Force blue linson boards with spines lettered gilt, with pictorial endpapers in all but the final volume, preserved in white pictorial dustwrappers and purple plush-lined cloth-covered slipcase with ribbon pull; pp. [viii], 9-160; [viii], 9-176; [x], 11-172; [x], 11-184; [x], 11-192; [x], 11-171; with line illustrations throughout by Quentin Blake; externally fine with light speckling to the edges of volumes 3, 4 and 5, internally clean and sound throughout, protected by remarkably fresh dustwrappers, 3 of which are unclipped, with a slight horizontal crease to top edge of upper panel of 'Uncle', a faint score mark to upper panel of 'Treacle Trouble', a couple of inconspicuous horizontal scratches to spines, and minor rubbing to upper fore-edge fold of 'Claudius the Camel'; scarce as a set in this condition. First editions; each volume signed in ink by Quentin Blake to the title-page. A few of the 'Uncle' titles are ridiculously elusive which makes assembling a set, in uniform condition, a very difficult task. This popular series of book about the pompous, fabulously wealthy, purple dressing-gown-wearing elephant called Uncle have inspired a cult following across the world. Although ostensibly a "grand, crazy comedy" the stories, it has been claimed, have multiple layers of meaning with some reading it as an exposé on the hypocrisy of society and others a critique of capitalism (Eccleshare. 1001 Children's Books).

        A PRESIDENT'S COUNTRY: A GUIDE TO THE HILL COUNTRY OF TEXAS

      The Alcalde Press (1964), Austin - One of a very small but unkown number of copies bound in full red leather with a gilt decoration of a saddle on the front cover and gilt lettering on the spine. Illustrated with drawings by Mac Tatchell and photographs; 80 pages. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the President on the title page: "To Dorothy Nichols/with love--/Lyndon B. Johnson." Dorothy Nichols was a personal secretary and assistant to Johnson from the time he was a freshman congressman until the end of his presidency. She was the first female assistant Johnson hired. They were so close that Johnson gave her away at her wedding and included her in his will. Books genuinely signed by LBJ are quite scarce, and most of those are copies of THE VANTAGE POINT, usually signed on a bookplate and sometimes on a tipped-in page as issued by The First Edition Circle. Association copies, such as this, are extremely difficult to come by. We have not seen another association copy of this leatherbound title except for this very copy which we sold back in 2001 and acquired again a few years ago. Corners with gold-plated protectors added. Rubbing of leather at the head of the spine. Very Good or better and quite scarce in this presentation binding [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
