        A President's Country. A Guide to the Hill Country of Texas. With drawings by Mac Tatchell.

      Austin: Alcade Press, 1964 - Octavo. Original red leather presentation binding, titles to spine gilt, saddle vignette to front cover gilt, turn-ins gilt, pictorial endpapers. Housed in a custom red cloth slipcase. Negligible rubbing to extremities; an excellent, bright copy. Illustrated throughout in black and white. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the Johnsons on title page, "To Clark and Marney Clifford with appreciation of a pleasant few days here together. Lady Bird & Lyndon B. Johnson, July 7, 1966." Clark Clifford (1906–1998) was a hugely influential Democratic advisor, holding the role of Counsel to the President during Truman's presidency. Having left this role in 1950 to practice law, Clifford remained a trusted advisor to subsequent Democratic presidents. In July 1966 the Johnsons were staying on their ranch in Texas, where, on 4 July 1966 Johnson had signed the influential Freedom of Information Act. Johnson announced in a press conference on 5 July that Clifford would be joining him there "to review intelligence matters with me, and will stay overnight here at the ranch". They were joined on 6 July by Secretary of Defence Robert McNamara (1916–2009), whom Clifford succeeded as Secretary of Defence in 1968. Clifford was crucial in halting what he described as the runaway train of Johnson's war in Vietnam and convinced the President to deny Pentagon requests for still more troops and to instead seek a negotiated settlement of the conflict. When asked, with regards to Vietnam, whether he was a hawk or a dove, he remarked, "I am not conscious of falling under any of those ornithological divisions". Jack Maguire, a journalist for Texas Parade Magazine and executive director of the Ex-Student's Association of University of Texas, was commissioned by Johnson in the hopes that this work would give readers a sense of the Texas Hill Country where Johnson grew up, and which was so important in shaping his character. The book includes chapters on the region's geology, plant and wildlife, architecture, indigenous peoples and settlers written by experts on the topics, including Henry Shuffler, W. W. Newcomb, Jr. and Peter Flawn. Uncommon inscribed in the leather presentation binding, with four copies traced at auction, none with such an important association.

        Print]: Take It Easy But Take It!

      - Print or broadside. Approximately 14" x 19". Slate print, printed in silver-white on black textured rag paper. A little creasing at the corners of the textured paper, slight remnants from mounting on rear, else near fine. Number 17 of 500 copies Signed by the artist and dated in 1964. Additionally Inscribed in the wide lower margin: "Dear Dave - The Middlefield Show is a success - financially & publicity-wise. Thanks for your help. Bill Kent. Oct. 1964." The image depicts a faux-classical couple: he with a long beard and a tail, in a priapic state of arousal, reaching underneath the long skirt of a woman dangling a cat-like animal from one hand. Kent was a critically acclaimed artist in the 1960s. He exhibited at the 1966 Whitney Biennial, and apparently drew some comparisons to Andy Warhol. However, the scandal created by his 1965 exhibition of slate prints, "Sex and Violence, Or Patriotic Prints," which caused him to lose his job as a curator, combined with his irascible character and contempt for the commercial art world, led him to leave the city to follow an ascetic path. He pursued the construction of monumental wood sculptures which have been compared to Brancusi, but he is now largely, but unjustifiably, forgotten. This print displays a sly and engaging pop aesthetic. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Two Sketchbooks of an American-Israeli Artist

      - Two sketchbooks. Both are small oblong quartos. The images are largely watercolors, but with some ink, gouache, and other media.1. Spiral bound cardboard ("Windsor Wire Bound Sketch Book"). Modest stain and some ink notes on front cover, very good or better, internally fine. Spanning the period of 1964-1965. 16 images including several watercolors, many of Niagara Falls. Several are signed and dated.2. Red Cloth. Modest wear and small stains, very good, internally fine. Spanning 1984-1985 (Hand-lettered on spine "Anita Kushner 1984-85"). Each of the 78 pages are used for images, often double-paged, and the vast majority are highly accomplished watercolors. Most are signed. The topics are largely impressionist images of Israeli scenes made after she emigrated, many in the area of Beit Shemesh. Her continued development from the earlier album is obvious.Anita Kushner (1935-2011) was born in Pennsylvania and studied art in Philadelphia, later emigrating to Israel where she lived in the city of Beit Shemesh, west of Jerusalem. She exhibited in over 30 solo shows in museums and galleries in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Israel, including at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Israeli Art, Museum of Modern Art in Haifa, and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. She was the sole artist whose work was displayed at the home of Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin during the historic signing of the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt in 1979. As recently as 2012 her art was exhibited at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art to commemorate Women's History Month. The watercolors presented here are especially impressive.

        ORIGINAL January 27, 1965 Invitation to the Nobel Peace Prize Dinner at the Dinkler Plaza Hotel in Atlanta (Honoring Dr. King for his 1964 Nobel Peace Prize)

      Atlanta, GA: Nobel Peace Prize Dinner, 1964. Ephemera. Single Sheet. Very Good +. 5 1/4 X 4 1/8 Inches (folded dimensions). Single sheet, folded. Scarce original January 27, 1965 engraved invitation to attend the dinner in Atlanta honoring Martin Luther King Jr., the 1964 winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. "You are cordially invited to attend a dinner honoring the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize Winner - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - an Atlanta Citizen on Wednesday, January 27, 1965 - Seven o'clock in the evening at the Dinkler Plaza Hotel - Atlanta, Georgia" The invitation contains the rather lengthy list of sponsors, including Rabbi Jacob M. Rothschild, Jessie Hill Jr., Ralph McGill and Senator Leroy Johnson. Return R.S.V.P. instructions at top. A rare memento of one of the shining moments in the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's in America. The Nobel Peace Prize and the handling of Dr. King's honors in the city of Atlanta brought out the best and worst in the city. The surprising award to Dr. King had a polarizing effect on his opposition. The Civil Rights movement in America was now center-stage of a global theater. Rumors of KKK protests and violence surrounded the night, although not much happened in the end. A few spots, else fine.

        High School Yearbook]: Old Gold Book

      Hot Springs High School, Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas 1964 - First and only editions. Three volumes. Folios. Some modest wear, student inscriptions, and dampstain to two page of one volume (1963), 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. See this book in 3D on our site.

        Set of Two Different Exhibition Catalogs for Mouvement 2

      Paris: Galerie Denise Rene, 1964. Two catalogues, each consisting of 12 die-cut circles attached to each other, printed in color on the recto and verso of each. Each catalog folds out into a 3 by 4 grid. Both catalogs designed for this important early exhibition devoted to kinetic and op art, a successor to the original Mouvement exhibition the decade prior at the same gallery. The catalogs were designed by the Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez, who had taken part in the Bewogen Beweging exhibition in 1961. The two catalogs have a different color scheme and design, but are both for the same show, and both contain reproductions of the same works and print the same text by Jean Cassou. Of the two, the blue catalog on glossy paper stock seems to be much less encountered than the red and green version - this is the first example we've handled of it.

        Architecture of the IBM System" in IBM Journal of Research and Development, Volume 8, 2, April 1964, pp. 87-101

      APRIL 1964 FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST SEPARATION OF ARCHITECTURE FROM DESIGN, THE FIRST DESCRIPTION OF IBM'S FLAGSHIP BUSINESS COMPUTER, IBM SYSTEM/360 (S/360) BY ITS ARCHITECT. IBM System/36- "was the first family of computers designed to cover the complete range of applications, from small to large, both commercial and scientific. The design made a clear distinction between architecture and implementation, allowing IBM to release a suite of compatible designs at different prices" (Wikipedia). "The term 'computer architecture' was coined by IBM in 1964 for use with the IBM 360. Amdahl, Blaaus, and Brooks [1964] used the term to refer to the programmer-visible portion of the instruction set. They believed that a family of machines of the same architecture should be able to run the same software. Although this idea may seem obvious to us today, it was quite novel at the time. IBM, even though it was the leading company in the industry, had five different architectures before the 360. Thus, the notion of a company standardizing on a single architecture was a radical one. The 360 designers hoped that six different divisions of IBM could be brought together by defining a common architecture. Their definition of 'architecture' was 'the strucutre of a computer that a machine language programmer must understand to write a correct (timing independent) program for that machine" (Hennessy, Computer Architecture, 1-2). CONDITION & DETAILS: New York: IBM. Quarto [11 x 8 inches; 275 x 200mm]. Bound in original wraps and housed in three-quarter custom maroon cloth clamshell case; brown gilt-lettered calf at the spine. Full issue. The clamshell case is pristine and the journal is in near fine condition.

        The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore

      New York: New Directions. 1964. First. First edition, second issue (of three) with pages 19-22 tipped in and Scene two starting on page 21 (approximately only 50 copies of the first issue were produced). Fine in a slightly age-toned, very near fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by Williams to actress Ruth Ford: "Dear Love with all my heart, Tennessee." In Williams' Memoirs he refers to Ford as "the wise and lovely actress, Ruth Ford, who seems to have been born with more worldly wisdom than I have accumulated even at this point in life." Ford, the Mississippi-born sister of surrealist author Charles Henri Ford, was a beautiful model and actress, first in Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre, and later in films and theater. Notably, she starred on Broadway in Jean Paul Sartre's No Exit in 1946, under the direction of John Huston (the last of five Broadway plays he directed). Her apartment in the Dakota became a salon for authors such as Williams, Edward Albee, Terrence McNally, and Truman Capote. A chance encounter between Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents in her Manhattan living room led to their collaboration, with her Dakota-neighbor Leonard Bernstein, on West Side Story. Similarly, she brought together Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight to create the celebrated stories of Eloise, the little girl who lived at the Plaza.Ford is well known also for her long friendship with William Faulkner, which began with her dating his brother Dean in the early 1930s. Faulkner was openly smitten with Ford for many years. He wrote his experimental 1951 title Requiem for a Nun, a sequel to his early and controversial novel Sanctuary, with her in mind. He further declared, to the consternation of his agent and publisher, that it was her dramatic property (Requiem for a Nun was a mixture of stage play and novel). Stage production of the title stalled for years, partly because Faulkner's experimental drama did not lend itself to live theatre, and partly because the producers were unsure of Ford's suitability. Faulkner was adamant that it was her dramatic property, and in 1959 she adapted the play herself and starred in its London production opposite her second husband, Zachary Scott. Her stage version received enthusiastic reviews in both London and New York, but did not fare so well with audiences and closed after a short run on Broadway. Ford continued to act on both stage and screen well into the 1980s. She passed away in 2009 at the age of 98. A wonderful inscription and nice association. .

        PAN AMERICAN AIRWAYS MAP: PAN AMERICAN AIRWAYS SYSTEM.

      Chromolithographed map (Excellent, virtually pristine condition), 82 x 148 cm (32.3 x 58.3 inches). - New York, 1964. A rare large version of the Pan Am Systems map - one of the most iconic airline posters of all time, from the golden age of luxury jet travel. - This large gorgeous poster represents one of the most iconic maps of popular culture. A world map, on a Mercator Projection, it is of a most elegant 1950s design, employing splendid hues of turquoise and emerald (in line with Pan Am’s colours) with relief shown pictorially. Boldly depicting Pan Am to be a truly global force, the globe is traversed by the airline’s routes, in red lines with their respective mileages. Indeed, by 1963, Pan Am served a wide variety of glamorous and exotic destinations, including West Berlin, Istanbul, Tehran, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg, Delhi, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney. Pan American World Airways, popularly known simply as "Pan Am", was perhaps the most iconic airline of the golden age of commercial air travel. Founded in 1927, it quickly grew into the world’s largest airline and pioneered many regularly scheduled long-haul routes and made many record-breaking flights. Introducing the Boeing 707 in the late 1950s, Pan Am came to lead the way in jet travel. From 1960 to 1965, the company’s revenue doubled and billing itself as the "World's Most Experienced Airline", it carried 6.7 million passengers in 1966, and by 1968, its 150 jets flew to 86 countries on 5 continents over a scheduled route network of 81,410 unduplicated miles (131,000 km). During these golden days, Pan Am was exceedingly profitable and maintained cash reserves of over US$1 billion – an astounding sum for the time. In the age of luxury jet travel, Pan Am’s service was considered to be the gold standard. The airline’s extremely well-trained stewardesses were popularly celebrated in and of themselves for their great style and welcoming demeanor. In 1960, the company completed ‘Worldport’, its iconic terminal at New York’s Idlewyld (later JFK) Airport. In 1963, the Pan Am name dominated the view down New York’s Park Avenue, atop the Pam Am Building (now the Met Life Building), the largest commercial real estate space in America. Pan Am was led from its founding to 1968 by its incomparable CEO, Juan Trippe (1899-1981), who combined a daring yet successful business acumen with a flair for great style. Trippe had an unusual appreciation for great marketing and under his watch Pan Am became one of the world’s most recognized brands, synonymous with glamour and modernity. Pan Am’s marketing budget was perhaps the most coveted prize in the global advertising industry. A big part of Pan Am’s PR strategy rested on its promotional material, which was prominently placed in travel agencies around the world. Editions of the present map were one of the most popular and successful posters the company ever created and were immediately recognizable to millions of people. In the age of Mad Men, the company spent millions on ensuring that its image appeared favourably in popular culture. Pan Am planes appeared prominently in the James Bond movies Dr. No and From Russia with Love and in 1964 The Beatles were photographed stepping off of a Pam Am plane, commencing their ‘British Invasion’ of America. Also from 1964 to 1968, the legendary con artist Frank Abignail, Jr. posed as Pan Am pilot, a story that later popularized by the movie Catch Me if You Can (2002). Editions of the present poster map were first issued in 1956, based on cartography by John Philip and design and artwork by Paul John Brown. The poster was produced in two sizes; a manageable size (45.5 x 81 cm) and the present gargantuan format almost twice that size, being 82 x 148 cm. Various updated editions were produced until the late 1960s, with the present edition, issued in 1964, showing updates to routes as of January 1, 1963. They graced innumerable travel agency offices and airport lounges around the world, although posters in excellent condition (such as the present example) are today quite scarce. Referenc

        Public Papers of the Presidents: Harry S. Truman 1948: Containing the Public Messages, Speeches, and Statements of the Presidents; January 1 to December 31, 1948.

      Washington, D.C: United States Government Printing Office, 1964. First edition of Truman's papers from 1948. Thick octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by President Truman to his nephew and niece opposite the title page in the year of publication, "To Fred and Audrey Truman from Uncle Harry with very best wishes 11-28-64." In near fine condition. A nice association. After serving as a United States Senator from Missouri (1935-45) and briefly as Vice President (1945), Harry S. Truman succeeded to the presidency on April 12, 1945, upon the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Germany surrendered on Truman's 61st birthday, just a few weeks after he assumed the presidency, but the war with Imperial Japan raged on and was expected to last at least another year. Truman approved the use of atomic bombs to end the fighting and to spare the millions of American and Japanese lives that would inevitably be lost in the planned invasion of Japan and Japanese-held islands in the Pacific. Although this decision and the numerous issues that arose as a result of it remain the subject of debate to this day, it was one of the principal factors that forced Japan's unconditional surrender. Truman presided over an unexpected surge in economic prosperity as America sought readjustment after long years of depression and war. His presidency was a turning point in foreign affairs, as the United States engaged in an internationalist foreign policy and renounced isolationism. Truman helped found the United Nations in 1945, issued the Truman Doctrine in 1947 to contain Communism, and got the $13 billion Marshall Plan enacted to rebuild Western Europe. His political coalition was based on the white South, labor unions, farmers, ethnic groups, and traditional Democrats across the North. Truman was able to rally these groups of supporters during the 1948 presidential election and win a surprise victory that secured a presidential term in his own right.
