        A Beatles dress worn by a programme seller at the World Premiere of A Hard Day's Night, London Pavilion, 6 July

      1964. White linen dress printed with turquoise and black, featuring portraits of the four Beatles above their facsimile signatures and a musical stave with the title lyrics from "I Wanna Hold Your Hand". Signed across the front in blue ink by each of The Beatles: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, and by their manager Brian Epstein. The premiere of the Beatles debut film A Hard Day's Night was attended by the Beatles and their wives, as well as guests of honour Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon. The premiere was a charity event and the film was shown in aid of the Variety Club Heart Fund and the Dockland Settlements Charity, an organisation which established and ran youth clubs and community centres for the residents of the more deprived areas in the East End of London. This dress was one of a very few items of clothing provided to the 12 teenage programme sellers, including Philippa Whitaker who has written an accompanying letter informing how she was given the dress and subsequently got it signed at the reception later that evening by the Beatles. Together with a photograph of Philippa wearing the dress.

        Richard Nixon shakes hands and inscribes and signs a photograph with ???best personal regards??? to prominent New York Jewish leader, Judge Louis B. Heller

      n.p., c. 1964. 8" x 10". "Photograph Signed ???To Louis B. Heller / with best personal regards / from / Dick Nixon.??? Adequate contrast. Black & white, 8??? x 10???. Information form stamped on verso, filled out and signed by the photographer. Minor flaws. Fine condition. First Generation photograph, probably unpublished. Information on verso handwritten and signed by photographer ???Jay Sharp.??? In full, ???Annual Dinner Brooklyn Bar Association / Hotel St George / Dec. 2,1964 / Former Vice President of the United States,/ Richard K. [sic] Nixon / The Honorable Louis B. Heller.??? Prominent Jewish leader Louis Benjamin Heller (1905-1993) had represented Brooklyn in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1949 until he resigned in 1954 when he was appointed an Associate Justice of the Court of Special Sessions of New York City. He served until 1958 when he was elected a Justice of the City Court of the City of New York (1958-1966), and later Judge of the Supreme Court of the State of New York (1966-1977). A month before Nixon posed with Heller for this photograph at the Annual Dinner of thbe Brooklyn Bar Association, the Republican Party had suffered its worst presidential defeat since FDR beat Alf Landon in 1936 with 60.8% of the popular vote and 98.5% of the electoral vote. On November 3, 1964, LBJ had defeated Republican Barry Goldwater with 61.1% of the popular vote and 90.3% of the electoral vote. Richard Nixon was setting his eyes on the 1968 presidential election. Politics came first, ahead of personal prejudices later revealed in the Watergate tapes:In a June 13, 1973, conversation with secretary Rose Mary Woods, Nixon discussed the entertainment at an upcoming event, listing entertainers Johnny Mann and Debbie Reynolds, then Nixon asks about Danny Kaye, ???and not because of his ideology.??? Woods replies, ???Well they were going to try to get him but?????? Nixon interrupts, asking ???He???s Jewish???? Woods ignores him, continuing, ???I don???t know what happened whether?????? Nixon interjects again: ???He???s Jewish.??? Woods explains, ???They had to check him out with the Russians.???In an April 19,1973, conversation with Henry Kissinger, who is Jewish, about an upcoming U.S.-Soviet summit, to which Nixon thought Jewish groups might object, Nixon said, ???Let me say, Henry, it???s gonna be the worst thing that happened to Jews in American history. If they torpedo this summit ??? and it might go down for other reasons ??? I???m gonna put the blame on them, and I???m going to do it publicly at 9 o???clock at night before 80 million people.??? (???I agree completely,??? Kissinger responded. ???They brought it on themselves.???) Nixon continued: ???I won???t mind one g-ddamn but to have a little anti-Semitism if it???s on that issue. They put the Jewish interest above America???s interest and it???s about g-ddamn time that the Jew in America realizes he???s an American first and a Jew second.â? From the Collection of Louis B. Heller."

      N.p. : S.i., [1964]. Two original illustrations, rendered in pen & ink and gouache on paper, measuring 7 7/8" x 6 1/8" and 8" x 6" respectively. Light wear to extremities, several old tape marks to verso; Near Fine, showing no discernable flaws to image area. Variant illustration tastefully and archivally matted. Offered together with a Fine First Edition of William F. Nolan's Nolan On Bradbury: Sixty Years of Writing about the Master of Science Fiction (Hippocampus Press, 2013). Original (variant) and preliminary illustration created by Mugnaini for the limited edition chapbook of Bradbury's classic tale The Pedestrian, published by Roy Squires in 1964 (280 copies). Undoubtedly Mugnaini's original concept for the chapbook's interior illustration, evidenced by a preliminary sketch which was also preserved by Bradbury. Differing in mood from his illustration of the story in The Golden Apples of the Sun, here Mugnaini creates a more suitable landscape for Bradbury's brief glimpse into a bleak dystopian future. Unknown until their inclusion in Bradbury: An Illustrated Life (2002), both drawings remained in the author's personal collection for the rest of his life. Nearly 50 years later, William F. Nolan chose the variant illustration as the cover art for his book Nolan On Bradbury, a homage to his life-long friend and colleague. The Pedestrian, originally published in The Reporter magazine in 1951, is one of Bradbury's most enduring stories. He chose it as the one representational example of his work to be included in Timeless Stories of Today and Tomorrow (Bantam Books, 1952), for which he served as editor. In subsequent years it has been reprinted in numerous genre anthologies, digests and magazines. Clearly one of Bradbury's personal favorites, he would adapt it for the stage (The Pedestrian - A Fantasy in One Act. Samuel French, 1966) and later for television (The Ray Bradbury Theatre in 1989). Perhaps the reason the story still resonates with readers is best explained by Bradbury in his introduction to his collection Bradbury Stories: 100 of His Most Celebrated Tales (2005): "The Pedestrian was a precursor to Fahrenheit 451...a few months later I took that pedestrian for a walk in the night, had him turn a corner and meet a young girl named Clarisse McClellan. Nine days later, Fahrenheit 451 was born as a short novella called The Fireman." Provenance: From the Estate of Ray Bradbury and the author's personal collection.

        Document Signed by President LYNDON B. JOHNSON Appointing American Composer, Conductor, Teacher, and Pianist LEONARD BERNSTEIN to become a "Member of the Commission on Presidential Scholars"

      1964 - JOHNSON, LYNDON B. (1908-1973). 36th president of the United States. DS. ("Lyndon B. Johnson"), countersigned by Secretary of State DEAN RUSK (1909-1994) ("Dean Rusk"). 1p. Folio. Washington, May 23, 1964. The appointment of American composer, conductor, teacher, and pianist LEONARD BERNSTEIN (1918-1990) to become a "Member of the Commission on Presidential Scholars." In 1964, by executive order, President Johnson established the United States Presidential Scholars Program to foster excellence and to recognize outstanding high school seniors. The commission was comprised of university presidents and educators, author Katherine Anne Porter, and Leonard Bernstein, who was on a year-long sabbatical from the New York Philharmonic. Bernstein's national stature as a force in education grew out of his popular "Young People's Concerts" series begun in 1958, which set out to increase young people's interest in and enjoyment of music.

        "No one ever knows everything about politics. There is always something new to be grasped and absorbed ?"

      Washington, DC, 1964 or 1968. 9" x 10.75". "Typed Statement Signed ""Lyndon B. Johnson"" as President, 1 page, 9"" x 10.75"". On pale green White House stationery. Washington, no date., but probably 1964 or 1968. No salutation or closing. Fine condition. In full, ""The Mock Political Convention offers a timely and valuable introduction to a fuller future participation in national life. No one ever knows everything about politics. There is always something new to be grasped and absorbed. And it is never too early to start. I admire the public spirit that prompts you to take part in this worthwhile activity. You will never regret it -- and the nation will benefit from the experience you gain."" Mock Political Conventions were held in the nation's universities and colleges - sometimes high schools - every spring of presidential election years, so this letter was most likely written in 1964 or 1968."

        The Bell Jar

      Heinemann. Hardcover. B0000EEV3X 2nd edition from William Heinemann, London, 1964. Hardcover with Good Dust Jacket under mylar. Minor blemishes on DJ, as well as minor rubbing and bumping to corners and edges of book and DJ. General wear is not out of the ordinary, and this specimen is a solid copy of a book which proves to be increasingly hard to find. ~Good. Light to moderate shelf wear to covers/corners; satisfaction guaranteed. The Bell Jar is American writer and poet Sylvia Plath's only novel, originally published under the pseudonym "Victoria Lucas" in 1963. The novel is semi-autobiographical, with the names of places and people changed. The book is often regarded as a roman à clef since the protagonist's descent into mental illness parallels Plath's own experiences with what may have been clinical depression. Plath committed suicide a month after its first UK publication. The novel was published under Plath's name for the first time in 1967 and was not published in the United States until 1971, pursuant to the wishes of Plath's mother and her husband Ted Hughes. The novel has been translated into nearly a dozen languages. This edition was produced under Heinemann's 'Contemporary Fiction' label for members of the Readers Union group of book clubs. It was an optional selection rather than an automatic mailing and accordingly only a limited number seems to have been issued. Other than the first edition of the previous year this is the only printing under Plath's pen-name of 'Victoria Lucas' adopted by her as protection against her mother's reaction to an unsympathetic portrayal. . Good.

        [Photo Album]: 1960s Discotheque Dancer Photo Album

      New York. mid 1950s-late 1960s. Oblong quarto. Brown leather over paper boards with "Photographs" embossed on the front board. A collection of 132 black and white or color photographs affixed to stiff black paper as well as newspaper clippings and some postcards. Various sizes with most being 3.5" x 3.5". Boards are good only with tape replacing the spine, chips, tears, and a few present but detached pages, overall very good. The assemblage contains photographs and ephemera related to the dancing career of Joyce Pickens. Originally from New York, Pickens traveled the United States and Canada performing at clubs and supplementing her income by staying on in some cities to teach the newest dance crazes to hip citizens. In an offprint of an article from a May 1964 Toronto Daily is a discussion of how the Discotheque trend had arrived from Paris and Pickens had stayed on to teach the dances, dubbing her "Toronto's original discotheque girl." They quote her as saying, "We're headed into another era like the 'roaring twenties.' When the big bands died, people gave up going out to dance, except at private parties... Now with the discotheque, they can have all the variety and sounds they want... everything, at the flick of a turntable switch." The photos show Pickens posing in a variety of costumes, as a cowgirl, a flamenco dress, even a bikini, and in numerous clubs and venues including California's Moulin Rouge Club. Also tipped in are business cards for some of the backing bands that she danced with such as Alfredito and his Mambo Orchestra, Barry Del Rae, and Andrew Alvarez. There are also a handful of curious drawings, one of a hand-colored treasure map, another pencil drawing labeled "Holiday Inn." The end of the album has small newspaper clippings containing advertising for costumers and nightclubs. An interesting and plentiful collection of the earliest gestation phase of the disco area. .

        A Confederate General from Big Sur

      New York: Grove Press. Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket. 1964. True 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. True First Edition with no statement of printing on the copyright page and the price $3.95 on the dust jacket. The book is in Fine condition and has a Very Good+ dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is clean and mostly bright, but has toning and foxing to the white portions of the front panel and spine. This is the author's first novel. From Wikipedia: "In the summer of 1961, while camping in southern Idaho with his wife and daughter, Brautigan completed the novels A Confederate General From Big Sur and Trout Fishing in America. A Confederate General from Big Sur was his first published novel and met with little critical or commercial success. But when Trout Fishing in America was published in 1967, Brautigan was catapulted to international fame. Literary critics labeled him the writer most representative of the emerging countercultural youth-movement of the late 1960s, even though he was said to be contemptuous of hippies. Trout Fishing in America has sold over 4 million copies worldwide." .
