      Gloucester, MA. Undated [but post November 1964].. Six pages. In ink, on rectos only, of six sheets of octavo letterhead of "The Tavern." Folded for mailing, paperclip rust mark in upper margin (chiefly first and last leaves), very good. To friend and fellow writer, Paul Metcalf. A remarkable letter of condolence to Metcalf upon the death of his father, Harry: "I just, because a man asked me, was reading Letter to Melville, 1951 - and stopped with the name Harry, proud that I had put your father's name there, beside your Mother's, and decided to write you immediately to console you and Nancy because Harry has died. Henry K. Metcalf. Isn't it really a nice thing he was, and I hope the fact that he did live so that we all felt he was clearly himself...that your own feelings, both of you, may be that he simply did live out his term of life (as those words really do say it, though I never myself - and I imagine others of us (?) - didn't know these words do cover the meanness, that our lives do have to end), and that this will lessen for you that you don't have a father in the world any more." Olson continues on, at length, in the same vein, with vivid recollection and from the heart, of the impression Harry Metcalf left upon him. Then, either in a moment of forgetfulness, or because he had not heard, Olson asks that Paul extend his sympathies to his Mother, who had predeceased Harry by over six months: "...please extend them to your Mother for me (feeling as [I] do, that ever since that poem I was just reading, she hasn't wanted any more to feel my nature. Or amount of it. Or the way, in such an instance, it did - I think - enrage [?] her. (I certainly was hoping that the other way about might have been the way she would have taken it. In any case I was happy when I published it in book form, that I had the sense to remove her name, from the address. I should have done that in the first place...[)]." He continues on with concerns for Paul, his wife and family: "...[I] hope all aspects of your to all your liking, so much as anything can be, for any of us - and alas when the flowering aloes (to use your great grandfather's rhyme!) fall upon us." Olson met Eleanor Metcalf (1882- April 1964), Herman Melville's granddaughter and literary executor/editor, and her husband Harry, during the 1930s, when he was actively engaged in his "Melville Project" -- the tracking down and transcription of Melville's marginalia. As custodian of much of the Melville family heritage, Eleanor was foremost among his important contacts for that undertaking, and Olson earned what Tom Clark describes in his biography of Olson as "unqualified acceptance into this good woman's...household, where he was welcomed as a sort of surrogate family member...given a standing dinner invitation, a bed to sleep in whenever he was in Cambridge, and, most usefully of all, a direct pipeline to the Melville family papers" (p.24). In turn, Olson's significance for Paul Metcalf and his own writing was considerable. Olson closes the letter: "Love & life to you both, and to your daughter (and, by your permission and means, to your Mother), Charles." Ca. 6- 700 words.

        Atlas Narodov Mira (Atlas of the Peoples of the World)

      Moscow. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1964. First Edition. Hardcover. Very nice clean tight copy apart from neat inscription to f.e.p.. Brown 'Soviet' cloth, title in gilt to upper board. 112 pages of coloured maps, 184pp.. ; "This first comprehensive atlas of the world’s languages and peoples has 60 excellently drafted, multi-colored ethnic maps, and 11 showing population density. The text discusses construction of population maps, and specific questions arising from mapping racial, language, religious, and nationality groups. It is not an “ethnographic atlas” in the sense of showing only premodern tribal distributions, to the exclusion of populations of recent colonial or immigrant origin. Even so the atlas locates 1,600 ethnic groups as of 1961, which when corrected for groups present in more than one country, are reduced to 910. Soviet scholars have been much concerned with ethnogenesis, and this atlas poses many such questions sharply. The compilers were fully aware of inconsistencies and ambiguities likely to be encountered in attempting to classify and then map the world’s peoples". Gordon W. Hughes. "The Atlas Narodov Mira has been used extensively to investigate the effects of ethnic divisions, but little is known about how it defines ethnicity. Most theories of ethnicity emphasize the tendency of group members to marry within the group (endogamy). This note surveys studies of ethnic intermarriage to evaluate whether the groups in the Atlas: (1) are endogamous and (2) have no endogamous subgroups. I find that the groups are generally endogamous but there are a number of cases of groups with endogamous subgroups. Therefore, the data tend to underestimate ethnic divisions".

        Wood-block with medallion-shaped design of a Red Indian smoking a pipe against a background of the sea and 2 sailing ships with the legend De Jonge Amerikaan

      The Netherlands. Original woodblock with the trademark of an early nineteenth-century Dutch tobacco manufacturing firm used for stamping bale labels or wrappers for snuff tobacco (“Rappee”) consignments. The design shows a Red Indian clad in a loin cloth and feathers smoking a pipe against a backdrop of the sea with two sailing ships. The legend reads “De Jonge Amerikaan,” or “The Young American.” The central medallion is topped with a crown, tobacco leaves, spindles, and a trifork and winged staff, the attributes of Neptune and Hermes, gods of maritime travel. At the bottom the medallion is supported by further spindles and tobacco leaves, a trunk and a sack bearing the number 19. “Rappee” was a coarser cut of snuff which was grated before use; snuff boxes often contained a grater for this purpose. *On tobacco trade labels see Brongers, Georg A., Nicotiana Tabacum: the history of tobacco-smoking in the Netherlands, Groningen, Niemeijer, 1964, pp. 123-135..

Other contributors include Henry Miller. In a letter from editor E.V. Griffith about this work that was sold with another copy, he stated: "The correct number of items in the COFFIN portfolio is 41, but it is listed in some dealers’ catalogs as containing less. I suspect that the disparity is because two much-sought- after items---Fielding Dawson’s ‘The Canoe’ and Larry Eigner’s ‘God/ but the silence grows’-- are sometimes filched from the portfolio by dealers and sold seperately."

One of a very small but unkown number of copies bound in full red leather with a gilt decoration of a saddle on the front cover and gilt lettering on the spine. Illustrated with drawings by Mac Tatchell and photographs; 80 pages. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the President on the title page: "To Dorothy Nichols/with love--/Lyndon B. Johnson." Dorothy Nichols was a personal secretary and assistant to Johnson from the time he was a freshman congressman until the end of his presidency. She was the first female assistant Johnson hired. They were so close that Johnson gave her away at her wedding and included her in his will. Books genuinely signed by LBJ are quite scarce, and most of those are copies of THE VANTAGE POINT, usually signed on a bookplate and sometimes on a tipped-in page as issued by The First Edition Circle. Association copies, such as this, are extremely difficult to come by.

        SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH Inscribed to Barry Goldwater

      [Washington, DC], [@1964-1966]. Photograph. Fine and exceptional. Official oversized (14" x 11") White House photograph of Lyndon Johnson and Barry Goldwater walking down a hall with Johnson's hand on Goldwater's back and looking behind him at an open door where a few men are gathered. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the President on the blank margin below the image: "To Barry Goldwater/from his favorite target - Lyndon B. Johnson." Goldwater, a five-term senator from Arizona, lost the race for president to Johnson in 1964. Known as "Mr. Conservative," he is the politician most often credited for sparking the resurgence of the American conservative political movement in the 1960s and also had a substantial impact on the libertarian movement. He returned to the U.S. Senate in 1969 and served until 1987, succeeded by John McCain. In 1974, as an elder statesman of the party, Goldwater forced the resignation of Richard Nixon when the evidence of cover-up became overwhelming and impeachment was imminent. By the 1980s, the increasing influence of the Christian right on the Republican Party so conflicted with Goldwater's libertarian views that he became a vocal opponent of the religious right on issues such as abortion, gay rights, and the role of religion in public life. After painting his opponent as a right-wing legislator who wanted to abolish the social welfare programs created in the 1930s (such as Social Security), Johnson easily won the Presidency over Goldwater in 1964, carrying 44 of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Goldwater, who had opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 based on his view that the act was an intrusion of the federal government into the affairs of states, won his home state of Arizona and five states of the Deep South, the first Republican to win the electoral votes of those states since Reconstruction. Johnson won 61.1% of the national popular vote, which remains the highest popular-vote percentage won by a U.S. presidential candidate since 1820. In 1965 Johnson instituted three new social welfare programs: Medicare, Medicaid, and the War on Poverty.
