        Jefferson's Birthday / Postface

      Something Else Press, New York 1964 - 360 pp. (271; 89), 8vo. Two books back-to-back. Blue buckram and gilt spine, in illustrated dust-jacket. Light spotting to foredge and endsheets, otherwise a very nice copy in a very good, unclipped jacket with edgewear, a couple of short closed tears, and a very small loss at one corner. The first book of the Something Else Press and a crucial document of Fluxus, marking Higgins’s departure from the group (at least, as directed by George Maciunas). Macunias was originally to be the book’s publisher, but long delays drove Higgins to establish his own press. Jefferson's Birthday "consists of all the things that Dick Higgins wrote, composed, or invented between April 13th, 1962 and April 13th, 1963" (April 13 being Thomas Jefferson’s birthday); Postface is a long memoir of "the development of the new arts," and one of the main accounts of the origins of Fluxus, in which Higgins articulates his criticisms of Macunias’s approach. This copy is inscribed on the first blank of , in the year of publication, from Higgins to Fluxus colleague Nam June Paik, and then inscribed on the second blank at a later date from Paik to a Mr. McKay. A marvelous association for an important book. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      New York: Farrar , Straus and Giroux, 1964. 1st edition, full green cloth, with illustrated dust jacket. Specially signed by Lowell on the half title page in blue ink. Title-page and dust jacket are illustrated with a drawing by Francis Parker.

Franco Maria Ricci, 1964/65. 3 volumes in folio reliure plein cuir noir sous rhodoïde et coffret cartonné, bien complet de la reproduction d'un panneau reproduisant la lettre de l'invitation du Pape Pie VII. Un des 900 exemplaires numérotés et signé de F. M. Ricci. Texte en Italien, anglais et français (notes, documents...). Très bel ensemble, reprint de l'édition posthume de Parme, Presse la Vedova, en 1818, assurée par la veuve Bodoni qui nécessita 3 années de travail afin d'achever l'oeuvre de son époux. Tous les caractères utilisés furent spécialement coulés au moule. 275 caractères nécessitèrent une incroyable quantité de poinçons et de matrice, 675 alphabets différents, y compris les caractères orientaux, et mille trois cents gravures. On ne peut y voir que l'extrême professionnalisme de Bodoni et sa supériorité incontestée dans l'art typographique. Giambattista Bodoni naît en 1740 à Saluzzo d'un père imprimeur, Bodoni se rend à Rome le 15 février 1758, marchant sur les traces de son grand-père qui avait été compositeur dans l'imprimerie de la Chambre, il est chargé par le préfet de mettre de l'ordre dans les caractères de type Garamond. En 1766, il décide de se rendre à Londres, où l'art de la typographie est florissant grâce à John Baskerville et William Caslon, mais il tombe malade. Une fois rétabli, sur proposition de Guillaume Du Tillot, Premier ministre de Ferdinand Ier, duc de Parme, qui souhaite donner à Parme une imprimerie aussi importante que celles de Paris, Madrid ou Vienne, il est nommé directeur de l'imprimerie ducale de Parme, en collaboration avec Clemente Bondi, poste qu'il accepte le 24 mars 1768. Il obtient, en même temps, l'autorisation de former pour son compte un établissement particulier.

        The Gospel According to St. Matthew [Il Vangelo Secondo Matteo] (Original photograph of Pasolini on the set of the 1964 film)

      Italy: Arco Films / Lux Compagnie Cinématographique de France, 1964. Vintage single weight photograph of director Pier Paolo Pasolini and crew on the set of his 1964 film, "The Gospel According to St. Matthew," by photographer Angelo Novi. A magnificent shot, capturing the immediacy of the crew (and a philosophically distracted Pasolini) as well as the panorama of the Fosso Castello Waterfalls in Soriano nel Cimino, Italy. In the valley below, near the waterfall, the cast can be seen performing the baptism of Christ. With Angelo Novi's stamp and a press agency stamp on the verso, along with other notations.Typically offbeat Pasolini touches included having Satan disguise himself as a Catholic priest, along with the casting of the director's own mother as the Virgin Mary. The music is selected from a variety of sources, from Bach to American spirituals. Il Vangelo Secondo Matteo" was released in the US as "The Gospel According to St. Matthew," much to the discomfort of Pasolini, who didn't want Matthew designated as a saint.8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm).

        Le Mort. 2 Vols. (Complete) 1/10 COPIES [WITH ORIGINAL COPPER PLATE, ORIGINAL DRAWING AND ADDITIONAL ETCHINGS ALL SIGNED BY ANDRE MASSON]

      Au Vent d'Arles, Paris 1964 - Oblong folio. [4], LVII, [11]. Original full vellum, bevelled edges. Title blind-stamped to upper panel and black lettering on spine. One of only 10 de luxe copies, containing 9 etchings with color aquatint, one original signed drawing by André Masson and an original copper plate, the latter inserted into the front cover. Limitation page signed by André Masson. With an additional suite of 9 hand-colored etchings, plus one refused, all signed by Masson, laid into publisher's vellum spine over beige cloth boards. Each etching protected with a tissue-guard. Volumes housed in original leather edged beige cloth slipcase. Bataille's final erotic text, in which he crystallises his central notion of "érotisme" (the logical end of eroticism is death), into a harrowing story. It is boldly and somewhat abstractly illustrated, as was his first erotic fiction "Histoire de l'Oeil" by his friend and long-time collaborator André Masson. Slight rubbing to edges of slipcase. Minor soiling on spines. Closed surface tears along inner front joint of main volume, firmly holding. Sporadic and minor offsetting on pages (not affecting plates). Text in French. Slipcase in overall good, bindings in good+ and interior in very good condition (with plates in fine condition). About the author: Georges Bataille (1897-1962) was a French writer. Although several philosophers have been significantly influenced by his thought, Bataille tended not to refer to himself as a philosopher. Founder of several journals and literary groups, Bataille is the author of an oeuvre both abundant and diverse: readings, poems, essays on innumerable subjects (on the mysticism of economy, in passing of poetry, philosophy, the arts, eroticism). He sometimes published under pseudonyms, and some of his publications were banned. He was relatively ignored during his lifetime and scorned by contemporaries such as Jean-Paul Sartre as an advocate of mysticism, but after his death had considerable influence on authors such as Michel Foucault, Philippe Sollers, and Jacques Derrida, all of whom were affiliated with the journal Tel Quel. His influence is felt in the work of Jean Baudrillard, as well as in the psychoanalytic theories of Jacques Lacan. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        [Print]: Take It Easy But Take It!

      Print or broadside. Approximately 14" x 19". Slate print, printed in silver-white on black textured rag paper. A little creasing at the corners of the textured paper, slight remnants from mounting on rear, else near fine. Number 17 of 500 copies Signed by the artist and dated in 1964. Additionally Inscribed in the wide lower margin: "Dear Dave - The Middlefield Show is a success - financially & publicity-wise. Thanks for your help. Bill Kent. Oct. 1964." The image depicts a faux-classical couple: he with a long beard and a tail, in a priapic state of arousal, reaching underneath the long skirt of a woman dangling a cat-like animal from one hand. Kent was a critically acclaimed artist in the 1960s. He exhibited at the 1966 Whitney Biennial, and apparently drew some comparisons to Andy Warhol. However, the scandal created by his 1965 exhibition of slate prints, "Sex and Violence, Or Patriotic Prints," which caused him to lose his job as a curator, combined with his irascible character and contempt for the commercial art world, led him to leave the city to follow an ascetic path. He pursued the construction of monumental wood sculptures which have been compared to Brancusi, but he is now largely, but unjustifiably, forgotten. This print displays a sly and engaging pop aesthetic. .
