      (Norfolk, CT):: New Directions,. 1964.. First edition, second state with pp.19-22 tipped in and scene two starting on p.21. SIGNED by Williams on the title page. In his 1963 review of the original version of the play, Howard Taubman notes: A terrified comic ferocity courses through Milk Train but the play generates little pity. By the standards of other lesser playwrights this is impressive work. By Mr. Williams's criteria it is disappointing because its resolution is hard to credit. The play was completely rewritten for the version appearing herein but after again receiving poor notices, ran for only 5 performances. Touch of rubbing to spine ends, otherwise fine in like dust jacket with only light creasing and tiny nick to top front corner. .

      London: Gollancz, 1964. - First edition thus. Fine, bright copy in dust jacket, with minor wear to the spine ends. This is the author's fourth book which is a reissuing of his first two books, neither of which had sold very well in their original first editions. However with the success of this third novel The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, the publisher wanted to capitalize on the huge success and issued this omnibus edition. Not nearly as scarce as either Call For The Dead or A Murder Of Quality, but quite an uncommon book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        GROPE - Vol. One No. One (Jan. 1964) [and] Vol Two No. One [with] THE BLOWN MIND

      New York: Tibor de Nagy Editions / Sherwood Publishers / New York Express, 1964-1966. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. 4to. illustrated stapled wraps all. Mild handling wear, trace soiling. Each sound, clean. THE BLOWN MIND numbered (this #25) and SIGNED by both Yampolsky and Fleming to interior of front cover. Very good. Complete run of these scarce but related publications, produced by Forakis, Yampolsky, and / or Fleming (all artists better known for other media) under various imprints. In the first issue of GROPE, each contributes one work or “story” utilizing the conventions of the comic (panels, word balloons, etc.), but all non-narrative and veer- ing towards the completely abstract, psychedelic and/or nonsensical. GROPE No. 2 is authored by Forakis alone, while THE BLOWN MIND is a collaboration between Yampolsky and Fleming. The methods, however, remain the same, and the motifs and styles of each work clearly pre- figure the work of later underground comic artists. These works are therefore among the earliest weÂ’ve seen to exhibit a non-commercial, “underground” aesthetic (albeit mixed with a fine art influence). Indeed, the publication of Issue No. 1 of GROPE predates by at least several months what is generally considered the first underground comic: Jack JacksonÂ’s GOD NOSE (which though printed the same year was clearly published sometime after January). And though none of these issues quite demonstrates the over-the-top subversive quali- ty one typically associates with the underground, all three clearly exhibit a prescient style that would soon come to fuller fruition in R. Crumb and others. Rare as a set. While weÂ’ve had a few issues of Grope #1, this is the first time weÂ’ve encountered either of the two later issues.

        Haarremu No Aki [A Harlem Autumn]

      Tokyo: Tokyo Broadcasting System, 1964. Near fine overall.. First Edition. Quarto. Large spiral-bound photographic album. Collection of 80 mounted black and white photographs, taken by members of the Tokyo Broadcasting System during production of a documentary about Harlem for a Japanese television program. The crew based their narrative on a family in Harlem, and followed the family's friends and associates for a period of 52 days. The photographs document a wide range of social interaction: intimate moments with the family, boxing matches, Halloween parades, street scenes, and even drug use. Taken together, the photographs provide a complex and unsentimental portrait of Harlem's successes and failures, as well as an incredible snapshot of early 1960s New York City. The album concludes with 16 photographs of the crew in Hawaii, perhaps on their return journey. In addition, an additional photograph and small archive of Japanese language postcards and letters are laid in, the letters showing a return address to 41 W 86th Street, NYC.

        [Photograph of Jackie Kennedy and John Jr. in Palm Beach, 1963]

      New York: Mark Shaw, (1964). Very good. Original vintage double-weight black and white photograph. Paper size 14" x 11" with an image area of approximately 10.5" square. Mild handling wear. Small stain to upper left of image. Layout mark to margin. With photographer's stamp, dated 1964, to verso. Very good. A wonderfully candid image of Jackie Kennedy and son, John Jr., on vacation in Palm Beach, FL -- the trip on which she announced her pregnancy with their third child, who died just after birth. Printed by the photographer, Mark Shaw, in 1964. Shaw extensively photo- graphed the Kennedys and was their preferred photographer. He went on to be a close family friend - a fact belied by this image's inti- macy. This photo appeared in Shaw's book THE JOHN F. KENNEDYS, pub- lished shortly after John's death in 1963.

        Delights and Prejudices.

      Atheneum, New York 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.

      [New York]: Lorenz & Ellen Gude, 1964. First edition. Wraps. Very Good. Side-stapled 4to. mimeo. Cover by Joe Brainard; offset duplicated. Very good with the usual toning, mild edgewear. Some scuffing to covers. Soil here and there. Final leaf loose at two staples, but holding. Lacking rear cover and terminal blank (as in many copies and given specific provenance of this item - see below - we suspect many were issued this way). [66] leaves mimeographed rectos only. PROVENANCE: Izzy Young's copy, with his contemporary ownership inscription to last page: "Israel G. Young, December 1964, from Ed Sanders." Young was a central figure throughout the 1960s NYC music and literary scenes. He founded the Folklore Center, produced Dylan's first concert in 1961 (Dylan even wrote a song for/about him, "Talking Folklore Center"), and was close to Sanders, helping to print several titles from from his Fuck You Press on the mimeo machine at the Center. Edited by Ron Padgett (who also typed the stencils), this remains the definitive statement of the Second Generation of the New York School as well as Berrigan's most influential, popular, and lasting work - a measure of which can be seen in the fact that it is the only major American collection of the last fifty years to go through four sepa- rate editions, each at different publishers. From an edition of "300 plus an unspecified number of unnumbered copies" (Fischer p. 24), this is from the unnumbered series, estimated (by Berrigan himself; again see Fischer) to be about 100.

        Autograph Letter Signed [ALS] mentioning In Cold Blood

      New York: np. First edition. Very Good. Outstanding autograph letter by Capote to his friend William Gray, proudly announcing that his masterpiece, In Cold Blood is nearing completion. Written on Capote's letterhead with his name embossed in all caps on the upper left margin, the letter reads: Dear Mr. Gray - Bless you for writing me such a kind letter! I greatly appreciate your interest and tender concern. The fact is, I have been working, and working steadily and single-mindedly, on a new book for the past five, almost six years. Now it is almost finished. The title is: 'In Cold Blood'; it is quite a long book (for me), and I think it is good-and I hope you will too. Again, thank you. I am a most fortunate writer to have a reader-friend like you. [signed] T. Capote 12 November 1964 Capote worked for nearly seven years on his masterpiece, In Cold Blood. "So immense was the stress of the editorial undertaking... that Capote became addicted to tranquilizers and developed an emotional attachment to the criminals, whose deaths by hanging he witnessed at the Kansas state penitentiary" (American National Biography). In Cold Blood first appeared as a four-part serial in The New Yorker beginning with the September 25, 1965 issue (approximately 10 months after this letter was written). The recipient, William S. Gray, was a professor of literature and active member of the American literary circles of the 1950s and 60s. In the 1950's, Gray was introduced to Truman Capote by Tennessee Williams and the two developed a close friendship. (Gray was one of the invitees to Capote's celebrated Black and White Ball in 1966, the so-called "Party of the Century".) One leaf (7x10 inches), both sides, on Capote's personal letterhead. Original folds, a few spots of soiling. With original envelope addressed in Capote's own hand and an (unsigned) later publicity photo of Capote. Letters by Capote explicitly mentioning In Cold Blood are very rare.

INSCRIBED by Johnson to friend and art critic Suzi Gablik with a small drawing of an arrow piercing a heart that has the word “Love” written inside. Jacket tanned with a small chip to the top of the front panel. Boards a bit bowed. Else near fine. Gablik, a friend of Johnson’s since their days together at Black Mountain College, was largely responsible for first exposing Johnson's work to a wider audience. In the autumn of 1955, she brought Elisabeth Novick to photograph the installation of dozens of Johnson's moticos, photographs that appeared in the inaugural issue of THE VILLAGE VOICE that October. In Gablik's seminal book POP ART REDEFINED (1969), she recalled that event: “The random arrangement [...] on a dilapidated cellar door in Lower Manhattan may even have been the first informal Happening.” Gablik continued to champion Johnson's work throughout her career and they remained close until the artist's untimely death in 1995. The only inscribed Johnson we’ve ever seen and a major association. [Frank p. 8].

        [Photograph of John, Jackie and Caroline Kennedy at Their Georgetown Home in 1959]

      New York: Mark Shaw, (1964). Very good. Original vintage double-weight black and white photograph. Measuring approximately 12.5" x 9". Mild handling, edge wear. Small red stain and bit of attendant loss to right side of image. With photographer's stamp, dated 1964, to verso. Very good. A charming image capturing John, Jackie, and a two-year old Caroline Kennedy at breakfast on the patio in the garden of their Georgetown home in 1959. With the studio stamp of personal Kennedy photogra- pher, Mark Shaw to verso. Shaw's unobtrusive style endeared him to the Kennedys, allowing him to capture the family's warmest and most unguarded moments - including this uncommon view of their home life. Shaw died suddenly at the age of 47 in 1969, thus Kennedy prints bear- ing his studio stamp are scarce.

        Americans on Everest. The official account of the ascent led by Norman G. Dyhrenfurth.

      Philadelphia, J.B. Lippincott Company, 1964.. 24 cm x 16 cm. XXI, 429 pages. Original Hardcover with dustjacket. With several black-and-white pictures. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Jacket slightly torn. In protective mylar. Signed and inscribed by 4 members of the expedition.. James Ramsey Ullman (1907 - July 5, 1971) was an American writer and mountaineer. He was born in New York. He was not a high end climber, but his writing made him an honorary member of that circle. The books he wrote were mostly about mountaineering and geography. His works include Banner in the Sky, which was a book based on the true story of the first climbing of the Matterhorn (it was filmed in Switzerland as Third Man on the Mountain), and The White Tower (which would star Glenn Ford and Lloyd Bridges). Also Americans on Everest by James Ramsay Ullman, page 195, published by J. B. Lippincott Company 1964, Library of Congress Catalogue #64-14475. He was the ghost writer for Tenzing Norgay's autobiography Man of Everest (originally published as Tiger of the Snows). High Conquest was the first of nine books for the J.B. Lippincott company coming out in 1941 followed by The White Tower, River of The Sun, Windom's Way, and Banner in the Sky which was a 1955 Newbery Honor book. All of these titles became small motion pictures. He also wrote the short story "Top Man", a story about mountaineers climbing K3, a mountain in India. The story appears in several anthologies. It was originally published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1940. Issue #35. Beyond his mountaineering books, he wrote "Where the Bong Tree Grows," an account of a year he spent traveling through some of the most remote islands of the South Pacific. Ullman also wrote a novel about the poet Arthur Rimbaud, The Day on Fire (1958). He joined the American Mount Everest Expedition 1963 as official historian. Because of health problems he had to stay in Kathmandu. His book Americans on Everest: The Official Account of the Ascent was published in 1964. He died in Boston from cancer on July 5, 1971.

        Quotations from Chairman Mao].

      Central Political Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, Beijing 1964 - [Quotations from Chairman Mao]. Peking: Central Political Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, [May 1964]. 16mo (x mm). [8], 2, 2, 250 pp., including half-title printed in red, title-page printed in red and green, portrait of Chairman Mao printed in sepia, uncorrected calligraphic endorsement leaf of Lin Biao printed in black, and table of contents. Original printed paper wrappers printed in red and black. Protective vintage paper dustjacket pasted on top to the binding titled in Chinese script on front (Quotations from Chairman Mao). Provenance: Training school of Kunming (half-title annotated in Chinese). First and last blanks soiled a bit, otherwise clean and crisp. A fine copy of the rare first printing of the first edition. Created for use by the People's Liberation Army as a pocket handbook of inspirational reading, the book contains short segments taken from Mao's speeches and published writings for use in study groups as lessons for discussion amongst the soldiers. Demand for additional copies within the army required the book to get reprinted several times in 1965 (2nd edition March enlarged to 32 chapters, 3rd edition August with final 33rd chapter added). It is the second most frequently printed book in history, after the Bible, with an estimated five-billion copies produced in more than 100 languages in the past forty-five years. Early printings include a one-page facsimile of Lin's calligraphic endorsement for everyone to study Chairman Mao's writings, but following accusations of Lin's unsuccessful plot to assassinate Mao in September 1971, the government required this page to be torn out in an effort to eradicate Lin's name from modern history. Subsequent copies printed after 1971 no longer include any mention of Lin and most earlier copies that do survive have this page removed. The first printing is slightly taller than all later editions and includes an error found in the earliest form of Lin's calligraphic facsimile endorsement, where a superfluous brush stroke occurred in the 2nd vertical line from the right, 2nd character from the top. It is generally accepted that all copies comprising only thirty chapters and with text ending at page 250 are first editions. The more famous issue in red vinyl cover was simultaneously printed with those in first paper wrappers, but the vinyl took longer to produce and was thus release shortly after. Paper wrapper copies were intended for Army officers whereas those in red vinyl were produced to be shared by brigades of up to eight soldiers. (Schiller, Quotations from Chairman Mao. A short bibliographical Study, the Grolier Club, New York, 2014). Some copies contain textual errors in the final line of p.82 and the first line of p.83. As sheets for the Quotations were printed at several locations throughout China to facilitate faster distribution, no place of publication is stated; and no priority can be established for copies in which the misprints occur and those in which they do not.

        Nobel Lectures: Physiology or Medicine 1942-1962.

      Elsevier Publishing Company, Amsterdam 1964 - First edition. Thick Octavo, original yellow cloth. Signed by Nobel Laureates Francis Crick and James D. Watson at their Nobel Lecture. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with some closed tears. An exceptional piece signed by these Nobel Prize-winning scientists. In the early 1950s, the race to discover DNA was on. At Cambridge University, graduate student Francis Crick and research fellow James Watson had become interested, impressed especially by Pauling's work. Meanwhile at King's College in London, Maurice Wilkins (b. 1916) and Rosalind Franklin were also studying DNA. The Cambridge team's approach was to make physical models to narrow down the possibilities and eventually create an accurate picture of the molecule. The King's team took an experimental approach, looking particularly at x-ray diffraction images of DNA. Watson and Crick took a crucial conceptual step, suggesting the molecule was made of two chains of nucleotides, each in a helix as Franklin had found, but one going up and the other going down. Crick had just learned of Chargaff's findings about base pairs in the summer of 1952. He added that to the model, so that matching base pairs interlocked in the middle of the double helix to keep the distance between the chains constant. Watson and Crick showed that each strand of the DNA molecule was a template for the other. During cell division the two strands separate and on each strand a new "other half" is built, just like the one before. This way DNA can reproduce itself without changing its structure -- except for occasional errors, or mutations. The structure so perfectly fit the experimental data that it was almost immediately accepted. DNA's discovery has been called the most important biological work of the last 100 years, and the field it opened may be the scientific frontier for the next 100.

        The Hustler' Film Poster

      Twentieth Century Fox 1964 - A poster advertising the film 'The Hustler' starring Paul Newman. It is dated 1964, so I think it is for the film's re-issue in that year. It carries the references 64-897 and R64-173. Presumably the '64's refer to 1964. It measures 41" x 27". It has been mounted on linen and is in excellent condition, all the colours are vibrant and the image is sharp. It has not been folded. The whole poster is slightly wavy, i.e. it doesn't lie quite flat, and the back of the linen has what look like some damp spots / marks. Some of the white and green areas are a touch browned. As to its provenance, there is a sticker on the back of the frame that it came in for the Cine Art Gallery, Fulham Road, London. The Hustler was the 1961 Twentieth Century Fox film that turned Paul Newman into an overnight superstar. He played 'Fast' Eddie Felson, a pool player, who hustled his way across America to New York where he challenged the unbeatable Minnesota Fats and fell for the alcoholic Sarah Packard. The film won the Oscar for Best Black and White Cinematography. Newman reprieved his role in 'The Color Of Money' in the 1980s which delivered him his first Oscar. An iconic poster! UK shipping will be with myHermes unframed & rolled in a stout tube. Overseas shipping will probably be more than the Abe default rate, so please contact me for a quote before ordering.
