        Painting as a Pastime, signed by Churchill eight weeks before his death One of the last books Churchill signed, and the final edition of a book by Churchill published in his lifetime

      Harmondsworth, Middlesex: Penguin Books, 1964. First British paperback edition, first printing. Paperback. This is the first British paperback edition, first printing of Painting as a Pastime. Published on 26 November 1964, this is the last edition of a book by Churchill published in his lifetime and this particular copy is certainly among the last books he signed. Churchill autographed the half-title in blue ink in two lines: “Painting as a Pastime | Winston S. Churchill”. The signature's unsteady hand shows the toll of multiple strokes, compounded by the general infirmities of advanced age. The shakiness of the writing and the fact that Churchill wrote out the title of the work directly below where it was printed seems to poignantly witness Churchill's diminished acuity as the end of his long life approached. The book was last sold by Churchill expert and former bookseller Richard M. Langworth and is accompanied by Mr. Langworth's 19 January 2000 autograph affirming the authenticity of the signature. Condition of the book remains very good. The covers are complete and firmly attached with no creasing to the spine. We note only small bumps to the corners and light wear to extremities. The contents remain clean with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. Inevitable toning to the pulp paper of the text portion of the content does not affect the coated paper upon which the color plates are printed. The book is protected with a removable, clear mylar cover. Churchill's poignant signature appears in an appropriately personal work. Churchill's essay about his famous hobby had been printed in The Strand magazine as early as 1921, but it was not until 1948 - nearly three decades after his first published words on the subject - that Churchill consented to a book about his hobby and passion. Churchill first took up painting during the First World War. May 1915 saw Churchill scapegoated for failure in the Dardanelles and slaughter at Gallipoli and forced from his Cabinet position at the Admiralty. During the summer of 1915, as he battled depression, he rented Hoe Farm in Surrey, which he frequented with his wife and three children. One day in June, Churchill noticed his brother's wife, Gwendeline, sketching in watercolors. Churchill borrowed her brush and found solace in painting, which became a source of release and renewal for the remaining half century of his long life. He ultimately produced more than 500 paintings. Painting was something personal, a vibrantly hued, private calm in the great and turbulent sweep of his relentlessly public life. He wrote, "Painting is a friend who makes no undue demands, excites to no exhausting pursuits, keeps faithful pace even with feeble steps, and holds her canvas as a screen between us and the envious eyes of Time or the surly advance of Decrepitude" (Painting as a Pastime, p. 13). Equally compelling given the timing of this signed copy, Churchill wrote: "When I get to heaven I mean to spend a considerable portion of my first million years in painting, and so get to the bottom of the subject. But then I shall require a still gayer palette than I get here below. I expect orange and vermillion will be the darkest, dullest colours upon it, and beyond them there will be a whole range of wonderful new colours which will delight the celestial eye." (Painting as a Pastime, p.24-25) This first British paperback edition was published by Penguin Books on 26 November 1964. To our knowledge and that of Churchill's bibliographer, this is the last edition of a work by Churchill published in Churchill's lifetime. The front cover features a full color illustration of a painter's palette covered with daubs of paint on which rests two brushes and an ashtray with a cigar. The bright orange rear cover features a half-tone head and shoulders photograph of Churchill. The contents include both the text and, following page 40, 16 leaves of plates featuring 18 full-color illustrations of Churchill's paintings. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A242.5.a, Woods/ICS A125(c.1), Langworth p.292

        GROPE - Vol. One No. One, Jan. 1964

      New York: Tibor de Nagy Editions, 1964. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. 4to. Stapled pictorial wraps. Some faint soil to front wrapper. Mild toning overall. Very good. One of 500 unnumbered copies. A scarce and important publication which apparently ran just one issue. Forakis, Yampolsky, and Fleming (all artist's better known for other mediums) each contribute one work or "story" utilizing the conventions of the comic (panels, word balloons, etc.), but all non-narrative and veering towards the completely abstract, psychedelic and/or nonsensical. The motifs and styles clearly prefigure the work of later underground comic artists, and this is easily among the earliest we've seen to exhibit a non-commercial, "underground" aesthetic (albeit mixed with a fine art influence). Indeed, this publication predates by at least several months what is generally considered the first underground comic: Jack Jackson's GOD NOSE (which though printed the same year was clearly published sometime after January). And though the three pieces in GROPE don't quite demonstrate the over-the-top subversive quality 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. Curiously, published by Tibor de Nagy, who had previously done nothing quite like this. OCLC shows just 12 holdings.

Tan calf chemise 32.2 x 22.5 cm, edges blind-ruled, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, Nideggen paper pastedowns, in a folding tray case 38.8 x 28.5 cm. in olive bookcloth lined with Nideggen paper. Separate suite of 21 etchings, each titled, numbered 6/50, dated 1964 and signed “Cornell” in pencil, on heavy off-white Rives wove paper 37.8 x 27.8 cm, in a matching portfolio case, together with two watercolors of Clootz (Jean-Baptiste du Val-de-Grâce, baron de Cloots), one 33 x 25 cm, corresponding to the profile view of the etching (in reverse), signed in pencil “Thomas Cornell,” the other 25 x 21 cm, three-quarter view, initialed “C” in grey ink and numbered “16” in pencil lower right verso, both on cream wove watercolor paper. The tray case and portfolio are contained in a matching quarter-leather clamshell box, 40 x 30 cm, the black calf spine with tan calf title label and footer date strip lettered and ruled in gilt.

Clamshell box with corner and edge wear to spine leather, top front corner of spine worn through, chipping of labels and bumping of outside top corner of bottom cover; all else fine. One of 21 copies (numbered 1-21) with a watercolor, of the 50 copies with the separate suite, of the total edition of 300; this copy is not signed or numbered by Cornell on the colophon but is identified as copy 6 by the numbers “6/50” on the suite; it contains an additional, very forceful watercolor of Clootz not used in the etchings and may be a collaborator’s copy. Reference: The Gehenna Press, The Work of Fifty Years, 1942-1992, The Bridwell Library & The Gehenna Press (1992), biblio. no. 36, pp. 56-8; ill. (title page), exh. no. 20, p. 158; see also p. 17 (assessment by Colin Franklin). This work is a collaboration of Baskin’s design and McGrath’s presswork in the heyday of The Gehenna Press. Colin Franklin quotes its prospectus in his assessment in the Bridwell Library catalogue, “After the Apology of Socrates before the Jury of Five Hundred, Babeuf’s plea before the tribunal of the Directory during the final hours of the French Revolution is perhaps the most splendid testament ever uttered in behalf of the freedom of man’s mind.” Baskin relates in his note to the entry in the catalogue: “The book is an exemplar of an ideal that the press strove for in those years. A meaningful text, generally unavailable, set forth in handsome & apposite typography & enhanced with a set of etchings, woodcuts or lithographs, that enlarge or augment or deepen the text. To make this glorious work more widely known the University of Massachusetts Press published a popular edition of it”

        Archive of correspondence, a scrapbook, photographs, and ephemera from the papers of Jeremiah Milbank

      1964. Including: 77 Typed Letters Signed and 2 Autograph Letters Signed, 82 pp, 8vo, various places including New York and Washington, D.C., September 7, 1928 - May 13, 1964, most to Jeremiah Milbank with a few to Kitty Milbank. Overall near fine. Including: 77 Typed Letters Signed and 2 Autograph Letters Signed, 82 pp, 8vo, various places including New York and Washington, D.C., September 7, 1928 - May 13, 1964, most to Jeremiah Milbank with a few to Kitty Milbank. A rich archive of material documenting the relationship between President Herbert Hoover (1874-1964) and Jeremiah Milbank (1887-1972), an influential New York financier, philanthropist, Republican party functionary, and for many years Hoover's confidant, business partner, and fishing buddy. Milbank served as Eastern Treasurer of the Republican National Committee for the presidential election campaign of 1928, which Hoover won, as well as for Hoover's re-election campaign of 1932, which he lost to Franklin D. Roosevelt. Hoover remained intensely involved in politics for the next three decades, in part through the Hoover Institution and Library, of which Milbank was a major funder and board member. The core of the present archive is comprised of approximately 80 letters from Hoover to Milbank, ranging from 1920s to the 1960s. These letters span the length of the men's relationship, beginning with a note from then-Presidential candidate Hoover thanking Milbank for his work on the 1928 campaign, and ending with a note in the year of Hoover's death acknowledging Milbank's gift of $250,000 to the Hoover Institution. In several of the letters Hoover comments on contemporary politics and events, discussing opposition to U.S. entry into World War II, the specter of compulsory military service, New Deal political measures, and, in one late letter, disparaging President Kennedy's political appointments. Other subjects include Milbank and Hoover's shared mining ventures, funding for the Hoover Institution and War Library, the Boys' Clubs of America, Bohemian Club events, social visits, well-wishes, and thank you notes. The archive also includes printed ephemera related to Hoover's presidency; an album commemorating a fishing trip taken by President-elect Hoover on board the Milbanks' houseboat, Saunterer, just prior to his inauguration; and several original photographs. In addition, the archive features correspondence and related material from four other U.S. Presidents--FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT, DWIGHT EISENHOWER, RICHARD NIXON, and GEORGE H.W. BUSH--and other prominent political figures including ELEANOR ROOSEVELT, DOUGLAS MACARTHUR, JOSEPH KENNEDY, J. EDGAR HOOVER, and several others. A detailed description is available on request.

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED

      Pasadena, CA: np, 1964. First edition. Very Good. BRILLIANTLY WITTY LETTER BY HIGHLY CELEBRATED THEORETICAL PHYSICIST RICHARD FEYNMAN ON ONE OF HIS LECTURES ON PHYSICS. The letter, typed and signed by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman and dated October 27, 1964, is addressed to a Harvard student and reads in full: 27 October 1964 Mr. David ----- Harvard University Adams C-56 Cambridge 38, Massachusetts Dear Mr. ----- : Thank you for your interesting letter describing that wonderful phenomenon. I guess your "zero" is displaced outward but the inner nerve connections are as usual, so you have to "converge" to see parallel. Half way through your letter, I though, "poor guy", but on reading of the manifold advantages that your singular ability has for your [sic], I am going back to the bathroom mirror and practice harder this time, again and again, to see if I can do it too. Evidently you are a genetically advantageous mutation, and we can guess now where the evolution of the human race is headed. Sincerely, [signed] Richard P. Feynman RPF:bb In this letter, Richard Feynman responds to a letter from a Harvard student who had written the CalTech professor after reading his Lectures on Physics-- a comprehensive, lecture-based textbook on physics that is still considered one of the foremost texts on the subject--to inform him of his "relatively rare endowment": "We found that I do have a muscular imbalance which caused my eyes to spontaneously diverge unless the stimulus of identical images forces the muscular control necessary to insure superposition of those images." The student's claim, which he clearly acknowledges is a direct challenge to Feynman's argument in his lecture "Mechanisms of Seeing", in which he writes: "It is impossible consciously or unconsciously to turn both eyes out at the same time, not because there are no muscles, but because there is no way to send a signal to turn both eyes out, unless we have had an accident or there is something the matter, for instance if a nerve has been cut. Although the muscles of one eye can certainly steer that eye about, not even a Yogi is able to move both eyes out freely under voluntary control, because there does not seem to be any way to do it. We are already wired to a certain extent." Despite his refutation of the lecture, Feynman--the irreverently cool, bongo-playing scientist--seems humored and excited by his letter, as he quips: "Evidently you are a genetically advantageous mutation, and we can guess now where the evolution of the human race is headed." Not only a brilliant lecturer and unparalleled computator, the physicist was a remarkably unique personality, a man who was famously "radical in his disrespect for authority, but conservative in his science" (Freeman Dyson). Aside from his iconoclastic and entertaining nature, Feynman was inarguably gifted. Tasked with having to work on the Manhattan Project (Feynman was the youngest group leader in the theoretical division of the program), his post-war work also received serious accolades and in 1965 he was co-awarded (with Tomonaga and Schwinger) the Nobel Prize in Physics for his "fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles." His foray into academia was fruitful as well; his numerous lectures at CalTech evolved into many books, including Lecture on Physics , Quantum Electrodynamics, and The Theory of Fundamental Processes . Later on in his career, he conducted a televised experiment which dramatically demonstrated the predictability of the 1986 explosion of the space shuttle Challenger. This letter, in addition to being penned the same year that the monumental Lecture on Physics was published and a year before his Nobel Prize win, is significant because of its characteristically "Feynmanian" tone: funny, brash, a little dramatic, and most significantly demonstrating his famous curiosity and love of experimentation, no matter what the subject. Provenance: Acquired directly from the recipient, with a copy of the original letter included. Pasadena, California: October 27, 1964. Quarto, one page, on Feynman's California Institute of Technology letterhead. Signed in ink at the end of the letter. A bit of soiling at extreme margins, evidence of staple at top left corner, and usual folds, otherwise in fine condition. LETTERS SIGNED BY FEYNMAN - ESPECIALLY ONES WITH REVEALING CONTENT - ARE EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE.

        1 ¢ Life.

      Basel E. W. Kornfeld 1964 - First edition. Folio (41 x 29 cm). One of 100 copies on vélin d'arches. 66 lithographs, signed and dated on justification page by Ting. Loose in boards, publisher's slipcase. The book of a generation. Walasse Ting (1929 – 2010) was an American artist of Chinese origin with multiple talents. He came up with the idea for the present work with his friend Sam Francis, in Manhattan in 1961 and managed to bring together a great number of avant-garde artists to illustrate a text of his own - Raunchy Pidgin English. Ting was insistent that the book should be printed in the very best quality, and so personally supervised every stage of the publication process. Completed at the end of June 1964, the work became a manifesto for American painting. Each lithograph is signed in pencil by its creator artists, with the exception of the lithographs of Robert Indiana and Robert Rauschenberg, which are stamped instead. Twelve of them also feature technical or humourous inscriptions in their margins by Walasse Ting himself; these, of course, do not appear in the edition on white vellum.
