        The Luce-Donovan Dinner, May 25, 1964

      [New York: Time, Inc.], 1964 [New York: Time, Inc.], 1964. (TIME, INC) 8vo. Hedley Donovan's own copy of Time's compilation of the remarks made by various individuals on the celebration of his appointment as editor-in-chief of all Time Inc. Publications. Illustrated with photographs and photo-montage endpapers. Original red glazed calf, gilt rule on upper cover, "Hedley Donovan" stamped in gilt at lower right corner; fine. Provenance: Estate oif Hedley Donovan . On April 16, 1964, the Time, Inc. Board of Directors, "acting on the suggestion of Henry R. Luce" named Hedley Donovan to its top position, editor-in-chief. Luce, Time co-founder and for 20 years editor-in-chief, was appointed editorial chairman, and at the New York Hilton on May 25 a dinner was held to honor the two men at which Luce, Donvan, and other Time Inc. executives spoke. This is a beautifully produced record of their remarks, including these by Donovan: "This [piece] appeared in the newspaper of Jefferson High School in Minneapolis, a publication that I'm afraid some of you don't follow as closely as you might: 'Hedley Donovan was selected home room reporter by his class for the Jeffersonian the first year that Mr. McRae sponsored it. Because of his fine contribution the first semester he was selected as assistant editor the second semester. Just recently Mr. Donovan was named Editor-in-Chief of Time-Life corporation'. End of item". (The headline of the article was "Reporter Steps Up"). The most desirable copy of a splendid icon of American journalism

        The Dance Sequences

      Fort Worth, TX: Grouper Press, 1964. Fort Worth, TX: Grouper Press, 1964. Douthit, Peter; DiJulio, Charles. The Dance Sequences. Poetry: Peter Douthit [aka Peter Rabbit], Serigraphs Charles DiJulio. Fort Worth, TX: Grouper Press, 1964. Large Folio (18 2 x 24 1/2"). 8 loose sheets as issued with colored prints and original poetry, each signed by author and artist. Original wrappers (soiled). An edition of 50 copies (this is no. 34). OCLC: No locations. These very early prints by DiJulio but show an interest in bold colors schemes that he continues to use, although he has come to prefer patterns over known objects. Charles DiJulio (1941-2013) was born in Philadelphia and raised in Upper Darby before moving to Fort Worth Texas. He attended Texas Christian University and received a BFA and then transferred to the University of Colorado Boulder in 1964 where he tried his hand at experimental filmmaking. He eventually received a Masters in Fine Art in 1976. In 1966, DiJulio travelled to "Drop City," an artist commune located in Trinidad, Colorado, and was heavily influenced by the avant-garde work of its residents. He moved back to Boulder after just a few months and with the original creators of Drop City, co-founded a new collective known as "Criss-Cross." These artists emphasized abstract "patternized painting" in a modernized style. The group began exhibiting their work in 1974 and continues to hold periodic showings to this day. DiJulio taught art and film at several schools, produced a host of experimental 16mm films, and acted as the co-editor of Criss-Cross Art Communications. Peter Douthit (1936-2012), also known as Peter Rabbit, was a poet and early resident of Drop City. Born in Bradford, Pennsylvania and raised for a time in Owensboro, Kentucky, he traveled to New York City at the age of 17. He later studied under Charles Olson and futurist Buckminster Fuller at Black Mountain College in North Carolina before moving to Taos, New Mexico where he met authors and poets like Richard Duerden and Robert Creeley. He wandered the Southern United States working odd jobs until the 1960s when he moved to Colorado and became one of Drop City's earliest members. Here, he was dubbed "Peter Rabbit" based on his ability to hunt and provide meat for the small community. When the commune dissolved in the late 1960s, Douthit and two other artists founded another commune, called "Libre" in Farisita, Colorado. In 1971, he wrote a history of the original experimental commune titled simply Drop City. In the early 1980s, Douthit and his partner Anne MacNaughton founded the Poetry Circus, based in Taos, and began its annual tradition of the World Heavyweight Championship Poetry Bout, a "mock prizefight" between two opposing poets, complete with "a referee, judges and ring girls." The circus attracted many well-known poets, such as Ed Sanders, Jim Carroll, Allen Ginsberg, and Anne Waldman. The success of the organization and its annual competitions allowed Douthit to be remembered as the "Don King of poetry," just as he wished.

        The Bell Jar

      Heinemann - 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.

        Bildhauerzeichnung.

      Wien. 1964.. Originalradierung. 38 x 50 cm. Blattgröße.. Wotruba, Fritz, * 23. 4. 1907 Wien, 28. 8. 1975 ebenda, einer der bedeutendsten Bildhauer des 20. Jahrhunderts. 1921-24 Ausbildung zum Graveur, studierte bei A. Hanak an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in Wien, lebte 1938-45 in Emigration in der Schweiz und war ab 1945 Professor an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in Wien; 1948 und 1952 österreichischer Vertreter auf der Biennale in Venedig. Seine menschlichen Figuren standen anfangs in der Tradition des Realismus (zum Beispiel Denkmal der Arbeit in Donawitz, 1932). Nach 1945 arbeitete er zunehmend in archaisierender Stilisierung mit kubischen Formelementen, wobei die kantig-blockhafte Grundstruktur des Steins, des von ihm hauptsächlich verwendeten Materials, entscheidender Ausdrucksträger wurde (zum Beispiel "Sitzende Figur", 1949, Museum moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien). Ab den 50er Jahren entstanden zahlreiche Arbeiten für den öffentlichen Raum (unter anderem Wagner-Denkmal, 1969, Mainz; "Große liegende Figur", 1971, Rotterdam), baugebundene Reliefs und Köpfe sowie Arbeiten für das Theater (1948-67 Wien, Salzburger Festspiele, Athen, Berlin) und ein umfangreiches graphisches Werk. 1974-76 wurde nach seinen Plänen (Entwürfe ab 1967) die Dreifaltigkeitskirche in Wien-Mauer errichtet ("Wotruba-Kirche"). Wotruba verhalf der österreichischen Plastik nach 1945 durch seine Arbeiten und durch die langjährige Lehrtätigkeit an der Wiener Akademie zu internationalem Ruf ("Wotruba-Schule"). Zu seinen Schülern zählten so bedeutende Bildhauer wie H. Leinfellner , J. Pillhofer , A. Urteil , J. Avramidis > und A. Hrdlicka Großer Österreichischer Staatspreis 1958, Österreichisches Ehrenzeichen für Wissenschaft und Kunst 1971. ( Österreich Lexikon ). Unten links Nummeriert 10/200 und rechts unten Signiert.

      New York: Bollingen Series, Pantheon Books, 1964. New York: Bollingen Series, Pantheon Books,, 1964.

Housed in publisher's card slipcase. Spines a little faded, very light browning to endpapers. A fine set in price-clipped jackets with mildly tanned spines; small nick to rear panel of Volume II jacket. First edition, first printing of what Nabokov considered to be one of the greatest novels of all time. 'Arising out of the needs of his Russian literature students and serving also as a means of establishing his academic credentials', Nabokov spent most of the 1950s translating and annotating his English version (Boyd, in Nabokov's Butterflies, p.13). The source text used was the 1837 edition, which was the last one to be published in Pushkin's lifetime. A magnificent piece of scholarship and a terrific homage to Pushkin. With photograph of Nabokov, cut from a newspaper, and a partial magazine article on butterflies loosely inserted in Volume I.

      N. p., [1964].. Folio. 1 p.. Part of an article written for a special number of Paris Match in honour of the 20th anniversary of D-Day, explaining the grounds for the last-minute postponement of the landings: "Originally we had selected June 5th as the day to launch the assault [...] Success could be achieved only with the proper timing of the tides - a half-tide at dawn to permit the clearing of obstacles and high tide soon thereafter to allow landing craft to come in - a good mooon to aid in an air drop of men, and at least half an hour of daylight before the touchdown of our first landing craft to allow for final bombardment [...]". - Somewhat browned.

Dedication copy inscribed by the author to his close friend, scientist John Glaister on the front free endpaper: "To my friend, John Glaister, D. Sc., M.D., F.R.S.E., this first copy ever to come from the printers and binders (see certificate on the following page). With all good wishes, yours, Erle Stanley Gardner, September 1964". Professor John Glaister (1892-1971), whose achievements as a forensic scientist are the object of a two-paragraph hommage at the end of the Foreword, succeeded his father in the Regius Chair of Forensic Science at the University of Glasgow and was well-known for his dramatic appearances at court as an expert witness. As attested by the certificate mentioned by Gardner this copy was the very first to roll off the press. [Attributes: First Edition]

Freundschaftliche Korrespondenz mit dem Wiener Rechtsanwalt Anton Odelga, der zahlreiche Opernaufnahmen und Sängerartikel publizierte: "... Ich wollte Ihnen persönlich danken für das Buch, das Sie mit so unendlich vieler Mühe zusammengestellt haben. Im Durchblättern schon sehe ich, wieviel ich vergessen hatte! Diese Aufzeichnungen sind auch praktisch wertvoll für mich: ich schreibe momentan 'lose Erinnerungen' (Memories at random) [...]" (28. V. 1964). - "[...] Glauben Sie bitte nicht, dass meine Einladung für Hella Müller eine ganz selbstlose ist: ich brauche wirklich sehr viel Hilfe, und habe das Nützliche mit dem Angenehmen verbunden, indem ich Hella einlud, anstatt jemanden für die Zeit zu engagieren. Ich habe keine Ahnung, wieso diese Rosenkavalieraufnahme im Umlauf ist. Ich habe einmal ein kurzes Stück davon gehört, und bin sicher, dass ich damals nicht die Marschallin gesungen habe; ich nehme an, dass ich damals abgesagt hatte und jemand anderer üfr mich eingesprungen war [...]" (3. III. 1971). - "[...] Dei arme Hella haette rechtzeitig den Mut zu einer Operation haben sollen; vielleicht haette es ihr Leben verlaengert. Ich habe noch immer sehr viele Verbindungen mit Wien - es war doch die schoenste Zeit meines Lebens, die ich dort verbracht habe - und es war und ist - meine richtige Heimat. Ich lebe hier in Kalifornien in Zufriedenheit aber was soll man mit 87 Jahren noch vom Leben erwarten? [...]" (17. IV. 1975). - Die Briefe auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf.
