      Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, (1964)., 1964 "I learn nothing because my mind is stuffed with bodies. . . " Cohen, Leonard. FLOWERS FOR HITLER. Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1964. Octavo. Gilt-lettered black cloth. First Edition of the very elusive hardcover edition of Cohen's third collection of poetry & his most difficult book to acquire. This is a fine example with clean endpapers & tight unblemished text block, [multiple paper stocks used by McClelland] in a very good or better dustwrapper showing modest wear at the head & heel of the slightly darkened spine panel which is lightly rubbed affecting a few letters. A particularly good copy rarely seen as such these days. In fact over the last 10 years fewer than a handful of FFH have surfaced. $2550 "The first of Cohen's self-consciously "anti-art" gestures: an attempt, in his own words, to move "from the world of the golden-boy poet into the dung pile of the front-line writer." - Prof. Stephen Scobie. "It's useful to think of Flowers for Hitler as the author auditioning himself for all the parts in an unwritten play. Useful because it underlines the process of self-recovery and self-discovery that is at the center of these poems. In a jacket-note Cohen says that these poems won't appeal to the reviewers who praised his previous (second) collection, The Spice Box of Earth (1961). But I suspect that anyone who really liked the latter in all its range of style and substance (that is, not just its lusher surfaces and sounds) will like Flowers for Hitler even better. From the new perspective what looks wrong with the earlier work is a kind of premature coming to terms with himself. In Flowers for Hitler Cohen isn't so much shifting his ground; he's trying to unjell himself before it's too late. He's taking a more searching and uncompromising look at the poetic substance that he exists on, at all the things that he can remember, imagine, absorb, separate, excrete, transmute, forget." - Milton Wilson, Letters in Canada: 1964 POETRY. First Edition Rarity.

      (AVEDON, RICHARD) (BALDWIN, JAMES). Avedon, Richard & James Baldwin. NOTHING PERSONAL - SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY FROM RICHARD AVEDON. Signed Presentation Copy from the Photographer. Lucerne, SWITZERLAND: C.J. Bucher, 1964. First Edition. Small Folio. Silver Gilt Debossed Boards. Photography Monograph. Fair./No Jacket - As Issued. np, profusely illustrated in b&w gravure. Designed by Marvin Israel. Text in English. "Nothing Personal" is Richard Avedon's strikingly beautiful 1964 collaboration with noted literary lion James Baldwin. The photographer's second book, its images primarily hail from "Harper's Bazaar" and other magazine editorial work from the fifties and sixties. With figures from politics, society, fashion, literature, and the arts, it is a veritable who's who of power of the mid-Twentieth Century containing many of Avedon's most famous portraits including Dwight David Eisenhower in close up, the fragile Marilyn Monroe, a smug George Wallace, the pregnant Ted Kennedys in the surf, and many, many more. These are beautifully reproduced in stark black and white gravure, with Marvin Israel's book design here every bit the equal of the legendary Alexey Brodovitch's contribution for Avedon's first work, "Observations". An internally clean and sound example of the 1964 C.J. Bucher first Swiss edition with an English language text lacking a slipcase bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED PRESENTATION "For Dear ... with gratitude ever, Dick Avedon -" in black fountain pen on the verso of the front free endpaper showing some mild brown staining to a few pages along the foredge of the textblock. The binding has a bit of play, and the glossy white boards show some overall wear, soiling and light age-toning with abrasions through to the cardboard at the tips. In addition, the paper covering the spine seems to have separated and subsequently been non-professionally repaired with two overlapping strips of black linen library tape run along its length. All in all, a sharper copy in hand than it describes here of this classic volume. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        Third Annual American Negro Blues Festival

      Birmingham, England 1964. The American Negro Blues Festival was founded by the German blues producer Horst Lippmann. He introduced the British audience to some of the greats including Lightning Hopkins, Howling Wolf, Hubert Sumlin and the great Sonny Boy Williamson. Sonny Boy Williamson was to tour the U.K. in front of the Yardbirds with Eric Clapton on Guitar. Hubert Sumlin, died only last year after a long carrer and his funeral costs were paid by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Recently at the White House at a concert celebrating the Blues in front of President Obama, Jagger shared with the audience about loving the blues from an early age, when he often saw Sonny Boy Williamson perform in England. He told how singer /harmonica player Williamson, took note of the blues-loving young bands like the Rolling Stones: "Those English boys, they want to play the blues real bad," he said. "And they do – real bad.". Sonny Boy Williamson also wrote 'Eyesight To The Blind' which was the only song on the Tommy soundtrack not written by The Who.

Elected in 1940 as one of the 18 "Immortals" of the Swedish Academy, Lagerkvist was as highly influential writer from his twenties into his seventies, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1951 "for the artistic vigour and true independence of mind with which he endeavors in his poetry to find answers to the eternal questions confronting mankind". Signed copies of Lagerkvist&#39;s works are quite scarce and, beyond our shelves, signed copies in English translation are especially so. This copy belonged to actor and decorated WWII Navy Veteran Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the front pastedown. A Very Good copy in a Very Good dust jacket and with an excellent Provenance, SIGNED BY PAR LAGERKVIST. QUITE SCARCE.

Illustrated throughout in both black and white and color by John Burningham. An outstanding set. "Fleming&#39;s only important novel for children, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1964), illustrated by John Burningham, won the Young Reader&#39;s Choice Award (1967) and was adapted in 1968 as a popularly acclaimed film by Roald Dahl. Based in part on Fleming&#39;s memory of a custom-built racing car that gained local fame in Canterbury in 1921, Fleming&#39;s novel presents the screwball adventures of Commander Pott and his family, especially the Potts&#39;s magic automobile that can fly and sail. Both the novel and movie were critical successes from the first and continue to attract a wide audience" (The Continuum Encyclopedia of Children&#39;s Literature). London: Jonathan Cape, 1964-65. Octavo, original pictorial boards, original dust jacket. Three volumes. Books fine with a few spots of foxing to volume two; a few tiny, nearly invisible tape repairs to jacket versos, volume two dust jacket price-clipped (as often).

        Manuscript for "Marquis de Sade" (Published as "Satan&#39;s Saint: A Novel About the Marquis de Sade")

      N.p. [Los Angeles?], N.d. [ca 1964]. Bound typescript (carbon) on onionskin, bound between red card wrappers; xxiv, 453pp. Number 6 of 10 copies (so stated on typed limitation statement on title page). Mild aging and wear; Very Good to Near Fine. & & Hand-bound manuscript, apparently produced for private circulation. There are no corrections to the text, but the manuscript differs substantially from the published version of the work (issued by Crown Publishers in 1965), including a lengthy, scatological, epistolary Preface (addressed to "Paula") not present in the published version. Other differences may be summed up in the novel&#39;s first sentence, which in the manuscript version reads: "Nothing should have been further from the thoughts of Sade than this ugly word shit, that no matter how spelled was eventually to occupy such a prominent place in certain of his books..." In the published version the same sentence has been altered thus: "Nothing should have been further from the thoughts of the Marquis de Sade than those nightmarish scenes of sexual violence and corruption with which he was eventually to pepper his novels..." And so on, throughout, with the text consistently bowdlerized for public consumption. A copy of the published book (Crown: 1965) is included for comparison.& & Endore (1900-1970) enjoyed a long and prolific career in Hollywood as a writer of both fiction and screenplays, though like most writers on the Left he sat out much of the Fifties and Sixties as a result of Hollywood blacklisting (during this period he wrote mostly under the pseudonym "Harry Reis"). His 1934 novel Babouk, a radical account of the Santo Domingo slave uprising, is listed in Rideout, but Endore (though a lifelong Communist sympathizer and occasional Party member) always maintained an ambivalent attitude toward political themes in his writing. By his own estimation, most of his literary output catered to commercial tastes, and he is best remembered for his bestselling 1933 horror novel The Werewolf of Paris, which was adapted twice for the movies.

It is no accident that, in the first novel, a turning point in Kate&#39;s development is marked by her acquisition of a copy of Joyce&#39;s Dubliners [Joyce was hugely influential in O&#39;Brien&#39;s writing life, and in 1999 she wrote a biography of him ]. . . . When asked late in his life if he would ever return to Ireland, Joyce gave the famously enigmatic reply, &#39;Have I ever left it?&#39;, and Edna O&#39;Brien&#39;s relationship with her home country is complicated in ways that are similarly fraught and complex."

        Call It Sleep

      San Francisco: Arion Press. Hardcover. Fine. BEAUTIFUL SIGNED LIMITED EDITION from the Arion Press. Number 182 out 300 numbered copies (out of a total edition of 326), signed by Roth. Illustrated with 48 photographs of New York City in the period of the novel. At the time it was written, "Few publishers expressed interest in Call It Sleep because its moody undertones and true-to-life depictions of social and family conflicts were thought to be unmarketable to the nation&#39;s readers, who were struggling with the depression." It took decades until a critic wrote of it favorably enough to bring it to the public&#39;s attention again, when in 1964 Irving Howe published a review on the front page of the New York Times Book Review, making it a national bestseller. "For its combination of realistic detail, psychological symbolism, and modernist techniques, [Call It Sleep] marks an important transition in Jewish-American literature from the works of early immigrant writers such as Abraham Cahan and Anzia Yezierska to later modern voices such as Saul Bellow and Philip Roth" (American National Biography). San Francisco: Arion Press, 1995. Quarto, green half morocco, original decorated cloth, original decorated slipcase. A fine copy.
