        FAVORSKI COLLECTION

      1964. 1. RUSSIAN. (FAVORSKI, VLADIMIR)5 FAVORSKI BOOKS. Offered here are 5 books illustrated by Vladimir Favorski, the noted (and eccentric) woodcut artist who maintained an active working life that spanned his lifetime (1884-1964). Although Favorski began his work before the Revolution, his fame came from his post Revolutionary work which emphasized the art of the book. Although his style may have changed over the years, his emphasis on uniting the layout, typography and illustration with the text of the book remained the same. The 5 books included here offer a good example of the range of his work. The first 3 books date from the late 1920's and 1930's and Pushkin's Little Tragedies (#4) is one of his last works. One book includes a signed woodcut, one is a signed/limited edition and all are in extremely clean and bright condition. Most importantly is the inclusion of an excellent reference work on Favorski's life and work in English. Each is beautifully illustrated. Sold as a collection 1.Pushkin,A. Domik v Kolomne [Cottage at Kolomna]. 1929. 4to, pict. bds, sl. dusty, near fine. NUMBER 166 OF AN UNSPECIFIED LIMITATION SIGNED BY FAVORSKI. Pushkin's play is illus. with 3 full page woodcuts and many beautiful woodcut vignettes. 2.Globa,Andrei. Petr Petr [Peter, Peter]. 1929.

        Galgenfrist. Frihedens Veje. [i.e. "Le Sursis" - in Danish].

      København [Copenhagen], 1964. 8vo. Original printed yellow wrappers with green and black lettering. Minor soiling and minor creasing to wrappers. Internally near mint condition. Uncut and unopened. 371 pp.. Signed presentation-copy for Michelle Léglise (A Michell/ 11 Janvier 66/ Jean Pauls S") of the first edition of the first Danish translation of "Le Sursis". This is a higly interesting presentation-copy, since Michelle Léglise (or Michelle Vian as she was named at the time), was both the wife of a close friend of Sartre, herself a close friend, and eventually - around the time of this presentation - his lover.In 1940 Michelle Léglise had met the French multi-artist and author Boris Vian, whom she married already in 1941. Boris Vian (1920-1959) is best known today for his novels (many of which were published under the pseudonym Vernon Sullivan). He was also of great importance to the French jazz-scene and served as liason for Duke Ellington and Miles Davis in Paris. He was also a popular musician in his own time. When he met Michelle, she taught him English and introduced him to American literature. They had a son together in 1942. In the middle of the 40'ies, Vian was struggling to have his novels acknowledged, but those that he published in 1945 were not very successful. He did, however, in 1946 have the luck of meeting, and later befriending Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, as well as Albert Camus, and he began publishing in "Les Temps Modernes". Thus, also Michelle got acquainted with the most famous couple in France at the time - and very well acquainted with Sartre! In fact the two became lovers and began an affair that lasted throughout Sartre's life, in 1980. Michelle and Boris Vian thus divorced in 1951 under messy circumstances. Both Beauvoir and Sartre were very fond of Boris Vian and had promoted him often, but the messy divorce seems to have created spite between the different parties involved - Sartre sided with Michelle, and Simone de Beauvoir with Boris Vian. "Le Sursis" originally appeared in 1945 as part II of "Chemins de la liberté". When the first Danish edition appeared in 1965, Sartre and Michelle were still lovers

        Two: ten lithographs by Arnold Belkin; poems by Jack Hirschman

      FREE domestic shipping with direct order. **Los Angeles: Zora Gallery, 1964. 10 signed, numbered original lithographs and 10 poems + title page (in red & black) & colophon (all printed one side only on Arches and Rives paper). 22 loose sheets. 38 x 56 cm (oversquare). Plates printed in one, two, and three colors; stones & zinc plates effaced. Stated edition of 108 numbered copies. This set unnumbered on the colophon; the signed prints bear mixed numbers from 40 through 48; at least one is marked "Artist's proof." Printed at the Plantin Press. Reportedly, the full publication never was completed. The colophon says the book was bound by the Schuberth Bindery in San Francisco, but that firm's current owner thinks the job never materialized. The "brown vinyl ring-binder" in one OCLC record sounds nothing like Schuberth's fine work. Copy 24 at the Archives for New Poetry at UCSD is loose sheets like this one. This is Hirschman's third book, but Belkin's large, full-sheet lithographs with their blend of figuration and densely organic abstraction are the real focus.

        FLOWERS FOR HITLER

      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.

        Mao zhuxi yulu [Chinese, i.e., Quotations of Chairman Mao]

      [n.p., probably Beijing: Central Intelligence Bureau of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, May, 1964] First edition, distinguishable from other editions by its slightly larger paper size, by containing thirty chapters and ending at page 250. . In the earliest binding of off-white paper wrappers with front cover printed in black and red, and spine printed in red. . Sixteenmo, with the page size measuring 5 3/8: x 4." . 2 [half-title printed in red with blank verso], [2, title printed in green and red with blank verso], [2, portrait of Mao in brown tones, with blank verso], [2, endorsement leaf by Lin Biao with blank verso], 2 (letterpress introduction), 2 (table of contents, listing 30 chapters), 250 pp. The endorsement leaf is in the earliest state, with the misprint in the second character down of the second vertical row from the right. (See Oliver Han Lei, "How Read is the Little Red Book, in the Antiquarian Book Review, November 2003). Very minor soiling. Ink notation on half-title in Chinese characters. An exceptionally fine copy. This copy contains the Lin Biao's endorsement leaf, with three sentences for the diary of Lei Feng, printed letterpress in calligraphic script. The endorsement leaf is lacking in most copies because of political circumstances. Lin Biao, head of National Defense, had risen in power within the Mao hierarchy and was designated to become Mao's successor. However, rumors surfaced that Lin was planning to assassinate Mao. While never completely proven, they caused Lin to suddenly leave on a military transport for an undisclosed location when their plane was shot down in Mongolia on the evening of September 12, 1971. Subsequently, Mao attempted to eradicate his name from modern history, and the endorsement leaf was ordered to be torn out or defaced in all copies as a sign of loyalty to Mao. Therefore, copies with the endorsement leaf are uncommon, and copies with the endorsement leaf in the first state even scarcer.

        THE WORLD OF ATGET

      New York City, NY: Horizon Books, 1964. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Horizon Books, 1964. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 220 pages. Rubbing, creasing, and wear on the DJ. Landmark collection of photographs. One of the most beautiful and most important photography books of the 20th century. The First Edition Thus in its First Printing. Precedes and should not be confused with the 1977 and 1979 Reissued Editions. There is no ISBN. All of the book&#39;s editions are now rare. An austerely elegant production by The Comet Press: Oversize-volume format. Gray cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Eugene Atget. Collected, archived, annotated, and introduced with the eponymous essay, "The World of Atget", by Berenice Abbott. She re-discovered Atget&#39;s photographs, was a great photographer in her own right, and her piece is one of the best essays on photography ever written. Printed on thick coated (for the plates) and uncoated (for the text) archival stock paper in New York to the highest standards. In black DJ with white titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents the photographs of Atget (1857-1927), lovingly evoked, described, and celebrated by Berenice Abbott. "Among the few giants who have established the art of the photographer&#39;s vision on a level with the great arts of man, Atget in his own time was appreciated primarily by the great painters: Braque, Vlaminck, Utrillo, Kisling, and many others who purchased Atget&#39;s unique photographs to use as subjects for their canvases" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). More than any other subsequent figure, Berenice Abbott was responsible for bringing Atget&#39;s work to the world&#39;s attention. Today, Atget&#39;s Paris (his main subject) is a photographic touchstone. His gossamer photographs of the mist-shrouded City of Lights (that no longer exists, except in these photographs) remains a vital influence among painters and photographers alike. As an outstanding Pictorialist, Atget&#39;s influence on the great painters of his day was inescapable, which is why his enduring influence is all the more impressive. His photographs of Paris&#39; street scenes directly influenced Robert Frank while the ground-breaking vision of his natural landscapes is evident in the work of a very-late-modern artist like Lee Friedlander. At the time of the book&#39;s publication, Atget was regarded as "perhaps the greatest photographer who ever lived". There is no question that his place in the canon is secure, but it is perhaps more accurate to say, as Abbott does, that he is the greatest photographer in the Pictorialist tradition. An absolute "must-have" title for Atget and Berenice Abbott collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Berenice Abbott. Her signature beautifully matches her facsimile-signature at the end of her essay. A Certificate of Authenticity And Provenance comes with this copy. This title is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Edition Thus/First Printing available online and despite its imperfection (rubbing, creasing, and wear on the DJ) is still in fine condition: Every single internal page is clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Most copies available online have major flaws yet command hundreds of dollars. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i>180 halftone plates. Two of the greatest photographers of all time. A fine collectible copy. .

        Zadkine

      The true first printing of this notable work on the great Belarusian artist, limited to the first 100 numbered examples and offered complete in a presentation copy, carefully inscribed and signed by the author on the half-title page, and boldly signed by Zadkine twice, once opposite his portrait, and a second time, as called for in the deluxe edition, on the upper side of the folded-up print. The drypoint etching ("Combat Antique") was specially created for the limited edition in 1964, (initialed OZ-dated 1964 in the plate), printed on handmade Arches paper and signed and numbered by Zadkine in pen & ink. This is example 38, stamped on the justification page, the print numbered 38 and laid in at the rear with the original tissue leaves, as issued. The folded-up print has an unusual window format that offers an interior glimpse: unfolded, it extends 266 x 824 mm (10.47 x 32.44 inches) over 4 folded sheets and shows ten men & women twisting-turning-leaning unceasingly to separate themselves from each other and the nervous energy that governs them. Folded, print protected on the inside, a 54 mm equilateral polygon window in the center reveals the head of one figure. The open polygonal space in the opened print augments and directs the vector of dislocation experienced following the figures from left to right. PRINT: Reference: Czwiklitzer 47. Condition: Very Good with full margins; clean and bright, light wear along one fold line, slight bottom edge wear, the inner bottom tip with a gentle bend, the outer bottom corner with some wear: publisher's tissue leaves fine. SIGNATURES: As part of the authentication, I confirmed the signature opposite the portrait was handwritten, tracing with a viewing aid the impress and absorption of the ink into the paper. I additionally confirmed by looking at a trade edition copy. No autopen or printed signature appears opposite the Zadkine portrait in the trade edition, just a blank page. NOTABILITY: provides the first extensively researched catalogue raisonné of Zadkine's sculpture works and the first comprehensive bibliography. BOOK CONDITION DETAIL: Pages: clean, fresh and crisp. Boards: clean: outer tips with slight bump, spine edges at crown & foot with some fading and slight push-in. Binding: signatures tight, hinges good, spine lightly slanted. Jacket: slight wear from being slid in and out of case, now protected by a transparent protective wrapper. Upper Jacket: two 1 mm edge peels, top edge-60 mm long, bottom edge-40 mm. Lower Jacket: some edges with light yellowing. Spine: light yellowing: crown & foot edges with light push-in wear and a tiny, vertical 1 mm tear. Slipcase: excellent: light edge wear: two small bottom corner stains. FORMAT: Publisher's sewn viridian cloth boards stamped with gilt letters and b/w pictorial book jacket and unlettered, gray linen and cotton boards slipcase decorated with netting pattern. Jacket shows Zadkine's celebrated 1951 sculpture, "Destroyed City" in its public installation, set against a cloudy sky, a memorial to the horrors of war and the WWII bombing of Rotterdam by Germany. SIZE: 279 x 213 mm (11 x 8.4 inches). PAGINATION: Confirmed complete; 208 pages illustrated with 98 fine full-page b/w illustrations, (these cited in the Grove Dictionary of Art): preface, 6 pages; 3 essays, including 51 pages on the life and work; a photograph portrait of the artist, and suite of 97 captioned photographs of sculpture works, two with commentary, ("Destroyed City" in the artist's studio, and "Portrait of Van Gogh"); rear documentation with 1890-1963 chronology, 4 pages, comprehensive bibliography, 7 pages, and the catalogue raisonné of sculpture works, 35 pages. There are testimonial statements on the jacket flap in two languages, by John Berger and Lewis Mumford in English, and by Jean Cassou, Denys Chevalier, Raymond Cogniat, René Huyghe and André De Ridder in French. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

        Swords & Sorcery, Intro By L. Sprague De Camp, Signed By J.R.R. Tolkien, and a Separate Handwritten Critique By J.R.R. Tolkien

      Pyramid Books. Trade Paperback. Signed by Author. A pair of items is offered, which include a lengthy handwritten critique by J.R.R. Tolkien, and the related paperback novel, Swords & Sorcery, with the introduction by L. Sprague de Camp. The copy of Swords & Sorcery has a notation, penned by Tolkien on the inside front cover: &#39;J.R.R. Tolkien from L. Sprague de Camp July 1964&#39; The more significant item, is a sheet of stationary from the Hotel Miramar, East Overcliff, Bournemouth. On the verso, Tolkien has written in pencil, and overwritten the latter part in ink, a lengthy criticism of a story by Lord Dunsany, originally published in 1912 and entitled: "Distressing Tale of Thangobrind the Jeweler", which is included in the book. A not very complementary critique, but a wonderful example of his cryptic handwriting. A fantastic pair of items, written or signed by the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. These are both housed in a custom Dark Blue Leather Clamshell Case. The case has a recessed tray for the book, and a matching dark blue cloth folder fits on top of the tray to house the handwritten critique, protected in mylar. Marbled paper endpapers to complement the full leather binding and blue cloth interior and folder. A wonderful case to protect and show the two items. Digital photo&#39;s available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Very Good Plus / N/a.

        Tokyo (Cities, 4)

      Delpire Editeur, 1964. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Plus/No jacket. as issued. (Bonham&#39;s)Simultaneously released in Paris, New York, Berlin and Tokyo, this volume represents the culmination of Klein&#39;s "Cities" series. "This series showcases Klein&#39;s fine eye for composition along side his sense of humor and talent for capturing the irony and subtle interactions of big city life.Tight, clean, flat, square and sharp book. Lower tips rubbed clean of the chocolate laminate. William Klein&#39;s lasting legacy to photography will be his four city books, New York (1956), Rome (1959), Tokyo and Moscow (both 1964). They are long out of print but with reputations growing by the year they are now more talked about than actually seen. This is about to change as re-publication of the first two is imminent. New York in particular is regularly lauded as one of the great photographic achievements of the last century. Its visceral imagery and endlessly inventive layout was a groundbreaking form of hyper-journalism melding the spirits of dada, Pop, abstract expressionism and counter-cinema to dizzying effect. If it had been published in America it might now be as overcelebrated as Robert Frank&#39;s The Americans, issuedtwo years later. Even so its influence has been considerable. A number of Japanese photographers (including a young Daido Moriyama) were bowled over by its energy and graphic daring. I think Klein got better and his later books built on the achievement of New York. Tokyo is my favourite, not least because it sees Klein returning to the city whose photographic culture he helped to revolutionize. In 1964 it was the largest city on earth and the world&#39;s media were about to descend to cover the Olympic Games. Three years later James Bond arrived in You Only Live Twice, sealing a popular iconography for Tokyo that barely seems to have changed. Klein&#39;s version incorporates every Tokyo cliche but in pushing them to breaking point it soars above them too."David CompanyGround international shipping available at a reduced cost to Canada only for some books: email for exact cost.

        How It Is

      London: John Calder,, 1964. Translated from the French by the Author. Octavo. Publisher&#39;s deluxe brown calf, titles to spine gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. In the publishers slipcase. Housed in a black cloth folding case. An excellent copy. First UK edition, first impression. One of a limited edition of 100 numbered copies signed by the author, this a presentation copy additionally inscribed by the author on the limitation leaf, "for Pat with love from Sam 31.12.64". Beckett had a close relationship with the recipient, actor Patrick Magee, who starred in many of his works and for whom he wrote the one-man play Krapp&#39;s Last Tape. Anthony Cronin once wrote of Magee that "there was a sense in which, as an actor, he had been waiting for Beckett just as Beckett had been waiting for him". A superb association.

        Herzog

      NY: Viking. (1964). An advance copy, in the form of comb-bound galleys, of the Nobel Prize winner&#39;s second National Book Award winner (of three). Signed by Bellow in 1968, with the comment "long time, no see" -- presumably an indication that, even at that early date, the proof was already extremely scarce. The text of this book was changed while the book was still in galleys, and approximately two dozen pages have new text pasted over the originals. There are also several hand corrections to both new and old pages, and a couple of marginal comments (e.g. "Moses Herzog as demented artist"). Even with the added pages of text and the corrections, variations still exist between this version and the final published text. 10" x 5-1/4" galleys, comb-bound in printed yellow cardstock covers; a bit handled and creased; very good. Scarce: we know of only two other copies of this proof surfacing over the years. A bibliographically significant copy of a key work by an American Nobel Prize winner. . First Edition.
