        [High School Yearbook]: Old Gold Book

      Hot Springs High School Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas: Hot Springs High School. 1962-1964. First. First and only editions. Three volumes. Folios. Some modest wear, student inscriptions, mostly fine in custom cloth clamshell case. All three of Bill Clinton's High School yearbooks (he attended a junior high school which went through 9th grade). As one might imagine, "Billy" Clinton (as he is called) is all over the books. In his first year there are about half a dozen photos. The next year about ten and by Senior year there are nearly 20 different photographs of him, including the famous photo of him shaking hands with J.F.K. at Boys' Nation, as well as first chair saxophone in the All-State band, and in various other clubs and honor societies. Mercifully, these yearbooks have an index to students, but we have found some instances where they have failed to note his appearance in the index. Although a relatively large school -- approximately 350 students in Clinton's class, it would be difficult to assemble another set today. .

        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.

      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.

        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.

      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.

        Charlie and the Chocolate Factory [*SIGNED*]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Fine in Very Good+ dj. (c.1964). First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . (price-clipped) [a beautiful copy, the book itself flawless save for a slight crimping of the cloth at the top of the spine; the jacket is similarly nice, downgraded only because of the price-clipping, a two-and-a-half-inch-long line of small scraped white spots along the front hinge, and a touch of soiling along the rear hinge]. (drawings) INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author -- upside-down, on the rear end paper -- and dated in his hand: "For ________ / Always young in heart / With affection / Roald / March 1965." An outstanding copy of this modern classic, the basis for two major movies, one beloved and the other not so much (which might just boil down to how you feel about Gene Wilder vs. Johnny Depp). Uncommon signed, more so with a personal inscription. Signed by Author .
