        Dames et Généraux

      Schwarz - Berggruen, 1964. Dix planches gravées à l'eau-forte pour dix poèmes de Benjamin Péret choisis par Tristan Sauvage dans le recueil De Derrière les fagots. Avec un texte liminaire par André Breton et un faux titre de Marcel Duchamp. Dieci poesie di Péret scelte per l'occasione da Tristan Sauvage (Arturo Schwarz) attingendo alla raccolta De Derrière les fagots. Con 10 incisioni originali a colori, numerate e firmate di Enrico Baj (cm 24,5x19,5). Prima edizione di 100+XXV es. numerati e firmati da Baj e Peret (First edition of 100+XXV numbered copies signed by Baj e Peret). 4to (cm 35x26). pp. 28+incisioni. Ottimo (Fine). Prima ed. di 100+XXV es. numerati e firmati. Nella realizzazione delle 10 acqueforti Baj ha mantenuto un preciso legame con l'opera poetica di Péret, e ogni personaggio raffigurato trova corrispondenza nei versi di ciascuna poesia. Compare qui, per la prima volta nell'opera grafica di Baj, il personaggio del ''generale''. La confezione del volume, priva di ogni relazione con il contenuto letterario e figurativo, è il primo esempio dell'uso da parte di Baj di un imballaggio a carattere surrealista. L'invenzione straniante si manifesta nella forma di materasso in miniatura, in tela imbottita e trapuntata, assunta dall'astuccio che racchiude il libro, a sua volta ricoperto con il medesimo tipo di tela. Oltre a Breton, anche Marcel Duchamp volle essere partecipe dell'impresa e preparò un faux-titre per il volume, stampato poi in facsimile come antiporta, nel quale la data 1963 si trasforma in un immaginario numero telefonico di Baj: ''Uniformes et Livrée / Milan-Paris, Via Gesù 17 - Rue de l'Université 70, Tel. Baj. 19.63 / Marcel Duchamp'' (Caprile, 1990).

        Asturias

      Editions Cercle d'Art, Paris, lithography by Chenot, first edition, 1964 OFFERING: A remarkable specimen of the collaborative work, extra-illustrated by contributing artist, Juan Alcalde with twenty five pages of original drawings artfully worked into printed texts and illustrations. Many of the original drawings are of striking quality and some are done in multimedia with built up color. The contributing poet, Antonio Gavina has handwritten a poem in an incantatory style, first line, "Negro de Espana", signed and embellished with a floral decoration, forty nine lines twining in and around his printed poem onto the facing page. The two pages are superbly extra-illustrated with original drawings by Juan Alcalde, a portrait head of Antonio Gavina and a built up landscape in colors with Antonio Gavina printed in the center. The text, handwritten poem, portrait, and landscape become together a manifestation of the mind of the poet. The expatriate group work, protesting life in Spain under Franco was inspired by the spring 1962 walk-outs and strikes by coal miners in Asturias and is dedicated to their courage. Many of the texts and illustrations refer to the miners in Asturias. PROVENANCE: is documented by the original frontispiece signed Juan Alcalde, done in pen & ink and watercolor, and continuing on the facing title page with Asturias printed in watercolor along the spine. A self-portrait by Juan Alcalde in watercolor and charcoal illustrates the introduction. RARITY: This collaborator's example is one-of-a-kind. A worldwide institution search finds 22 holdings for the general edition including at many of the national libraries in Europe, and at Berkeley, Harvard and MIT in the United States. EDITION NOTE: The complete title is: Asturias: ce livre oeuvre collective d'un groupe d'artistes espagnols peintres, sculpteurs, écrivains, poètes est présenté hors collection par Les Éditions Cercle D'Art. Texts, translated into French are followed by original language texts in Spanish with the exception of a Catalan text. CONDITION: Book: Good. Jacket: Good. Glassine: Good. / Pages: clean and bright; foot of gutter in second half of book with light impress wear. / Wrappers: clean and bright with small crown tear and two foot tears. / Glassine: light foxing, spine soiled; fore-edge with hanging tear, foot with edge chips. / Binding: Reliable, needs to be handled with care; light spine slant and front hinge weakened, two signatures beginning to loosen. PAGINATION: Complete; pages are unnumbered but 97 pages with 44 lithographed reproductions of b/w lithographs made for the book. Artistic contributions include the superb division sheet by Pablo Picasso. FORMAT: Sewn flexible boards, as issued, the cream jacket protected by glassine, the upper side of the jacket printed with artists' names in violet and writers' names in lemon. SIZE: 330 x 282 mm. TEN ADDITIONAL HIGHPOINTS: complement literary contributions by 1) Rafael Alberti, with 2 pages of fine drawings; 2) José Herrera Petere, with a portrait bust, as landscape, facing the portrait head done by Semper, as a landscape; 3) Wenceslao Roces, with a guitar player landscape, finely built up around the Lorente print; 4) Nicolas Sanchez-Albornoz, with a work showing a sign painter painting Asturias, done in counterpoint to the facing Ceballos work of a miner with pickax; 5) Gomendio'tar Joxe Miguel, with a fine portrait of the writer; 6) Maria Teresa Leon, a headpiece complementing Alcalde's own contributory print; 7) José Gomendio, two consecutive, powerful full-page mixed media works in built-up colors; 8) Juan Rejano, a multimedia color portrait facing the fine Alvar lithograph; 9) Manuel Tuñon de Lara, with a multimedia duo portrait and 10) Francisco Ferrer, with a superb political caricature facing a Beti print showing a clawing hand. JUAN ALCALDE: exhibited extensively in France and Venezuela. With the advent of the Spanish Civil War, he went into exile. In 1939 he immigrated to Venezuela from Paris, returning to Paris in 1960. In 1983, he returned to Spain, establishing a studio in Madrid. REFERENCE: Joaquín de la Puente, Juan Alcalde, de ventolera en ventolera.

From the library of Professor George M Foster. 1st editions.This is an attempt at a definitive encyclopaedia of the environment, archaeology, ethnology, social anthropology, ethnohistory, linguistics and physical anthropology of the native peoples of Mexico and Central America. The Handbook was assembled at the Middle American Research Institute of Tulane University with the aid of grants from the National Science Foundation.George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:All volumes have Foster's stamp on front end paper, except the supplements 2 through 6 which are as new. An occasional word underlined by Foster in the texts. Jacket spines sunned. Supplement 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and six issued without jackets. Over all a better than very good set in like jackets.

        Mythologies Quotidiennes

      Paris: Musee d'Art Moderne de la ville de Paris, 1964. Original. Softcover. VG, two small tears about 1/2" long at top of pverwrap near the spine. Plain white card wraps, stapled. Dj of lavender and white paint (looks to be original/unique) and large, black lettering. Multiple sky blue end papers. 28 pp. with bw images. Text in French. Catalogue from the exhibition, Mythologies Quotidiennes (Daily Mythologies), held at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, July to October 1964. With an introductory essay by Gassiot-Talabot, the catalogue of 115 works, and advertisements. "The exhibition in July 1964 at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris marks the symbolic beginning of the movement known as Narrative Figuration. Organized by artists Bernard Rancillac and Herve Telemaque and critics Gérald Gassiot-Talabots and Marie-Claude Dane, the exhibition reveals every artist's pure and formalistic "statement." Willingly using the grotesque, humor, and derision, these painters introduce the presentation with successive scenes or by juxtaposition or transformation of images. This movement began when abstraction was declining and comics, film and photography emerged as arts in their own right. Mythologies Quotidiennes features 34 artists who, like their American counterparts, put contemporary society and its images at the heart of their work. But, unlike their American counterparts, their work is more social and political." Artists included are Alleyn, Arnal, Arroyo, Atila, Berni, Bertholo, Bertini, Bettencourt, Beynon, Brusse, Buri, Cremonini, Dado, Fahlstrom, Foldes, Gaitis, Geissler, Gironella, Golub, Gracia, Kalinowski, Klasen, Kramer, Monory, Pistoletto, Rancillac, Faynaud, Raysse, Recalcati, Requighot, Saint-Phalle, Saul, Telemaque, and Voss.

        Cleveland Public Library, John G White Department: Catalog of the Chess Collection (Including Checkers)

      Boston: G K Hall & Co, 1964.  2 volumes: [iv]+613 pages; [iv]+578 pages. Folio (14 1/4" x10 1/4") bound in original red gilt lettering to spine. Introduction by George J Maciuszko. (Betts: 1-58) First edition.This catalog consists of some 15,000 items from the chess and checker section of the John G White Collection housed in the Cleveland Public Library. The catalog entries from the card catalog have been photographically reproduced (size reduced) with 21 entries to each page in three columns of seven. In the author portion, titles are further arranged chronologically by date of publication. The titles in the subject part are classified by a local extension of the Decimal Classification. Cataloging practice appears to conform largely to the Dewey Decimal code, with some divergence of practice over the years. Some annotation of the bibliographical nature is given where relevant.The collection originated as the personal library of John Griswold White, a noted Cleveland attorney, who served many years as President and member of the Cleveland Public Library's Board of Trustees. White was an outstanding benefactor of the Library. His gifts to the Collection that was to bear his name began in the 1880's and continued to his death in 1928. "The largest chess library in the world," wrote the famous chess historian Harold J R Murray about this collection in his work in 1914. Hundreds of titles have been added since that time, including many of the choicest volumes from the library of J W Rimington Wilson, a British collector whose fine chess library was broken up after his death in 1927.Condition:Some light rubbing to the extremities else a very good set.

        Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man.

      New York, McGraw-hill, (1964). Lex 8vo. Original white cloth with with black title-label with white and gilt lettering to spine. Very minor bumping to captials, but an unusually fresh binding. Original illustrated dust-jacket in very fine condition, not price-clipped. A few small, marginal tears, but overall excellent. Internally near mint. VII, (1), 359, (1) pp. First edition, first printing, of this pioneering study in media theory, which completely revolutionized our understanding of the process of communication and the development of the mind of mankind, from the invention of movable type through to the electronic age; THIS WORK ACTUALLY PREDICTS THE WORLD WIDE WEB AND TODAY'S INFORMATION-DEPENDENT PLANET, making it "the most important book ever written on communication". It is in this groundbreaking work that McLuhan first coins the phrases "global village" and "the medium is the message", completely rethinking our society. Due to this marvel of a book, written twenty years before the PC revolution and thirty years before the rise of the Internet!, "Marshall McLuhan has become an "ism". McLuhanism is a new approach to the relations of man and his technologies, and a radically fresh concept of our electronic world... Marshall McLuhan is a philosopher for the age of electronics, and a humanist for the age of communications. Seeing all of our new technologies as extensions of our senses, he examines the implications they hold for the very nature of human society" (From the front flap of the 5th printing of the work). Herbert Marshall McLuhan (1911 - 1980) was a Canadian philosopher of communication theory. His most famous and influential work is "Understanding Media", in which he coins his two most widely known and repeated phrases, but he has also written other highly important works in communication theory, and his work is viewed as one of the cornerstones of the study of media theory, as well as having practical applications in the advertising and television industries.Although he was a fixture in media discourse in the late 1960s, his influence began to wane in the early 1970s. With the arrival of the internet, however, his works have experienced a great renaissance and he is now considered the most important media thinker of all times and his main work, "Understanding Media", the most important book on communication. "When Marshall McLuhan first coined the phrases "global village" and "the medium is the message" in 1964, no-one could have predicted today's information-dependent planet. No-one, that is, except for a handful of science fiction writers and Marshall McLuhan. Understanding Media was written twenty years before the PC revolution and thirty years before the rise of the Internet. Yet McLuhan's insights into our engagement with a variety of media led to a complete rethinking of our entire society. He believed that the message of electronic media foretold the end of humanity as it was known. In 1964, this looked like the paranoid babblings of a madman. In our 21st century digital world, the madman looks quite sane. Understanding Media : the most important book ever written on communication. Ignore its message at your peril." (Official review of the 2001 Routledge Classics-edition). The first printing is difficult to come by in general and is very rarely seen in a nice dust-jacket.

First editions; each volume signed in ink by Quentin Blake to the title-page. A few of the 'Uncle' titles are ridiculously elusive which makes assembling a set, in uniform condition, a very difficult task. This popular series of book about the pompous, fabulously wealthy, purple dressing-gown-wearing elephant called Uncle have inspired a cult following across the world. Although ostensibly a "grand, crazy comedy" the stories, it has been claimed, have multiple layers of meaning with some reading it as an exposé on the hypocrisy of society and others a critique of capitalism (Eccleshare. 1001 Children's Books).

        Americans on Everest. [Inscribed / Signed] The official account of the ascent led by Norman G. Dyhrenfurth.

      J.B. Lippincott Company,, 1964. Philadelphia, J.B. Lippincott Company, 1964. 24 cm x 16 cm. XXI, 429 pages. Original Hardcover with dustjacket. With several black-and-white pictures. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Jacket slightly torn. In protective mylar. Signed and inscribed by 4 members of the expedition. James Ramsey Ullman (1907 ? July 5, 1971) was an American writer and mountaineer. He was born in New York. He was not a high end climber, but his writing made him an honorary member of that circle. The books he wrote were mostly about mountaineering and geography. His works include Banner in the Sky, which was a book based on the true story of the first climbing of the Matterhorn (it was filmed in Switzerland as Third Man on the Mountain), and The White Tower (which would star Glenn Ford and Lloyd Bridges). Also Americans on Everest by James Ramsay Ullman, page 195, published by J. B. Lippincott Company 1964, Library of Congress Catalogue #64-14475.nHe was the ghost writer for Tenzing Norgay's autobiography Man of Everest (originally published as Tiger of the Snows). High Conquest was the first of nine books for the J.B. Lippincott company coming out in 1941 followed by The White Tower, River of The Sun, Windom's Way, and Banner in the Sky which was a 1955 Newbery Honor book. All of these titles became small motion pictures.nHe also wrote the short story "Top Man", a story about mountaineers climbing K3, a mountain in India. The story appears in several anthologies. It was originally published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1940. Issue #35.nBeyond his mountaineering books, he wrote "Where the Bong Tree Grows," an account of a year he spent traveling through some of the most remote islands of the South Pacific. Ullman also wrote a novel about the poet Arthur Rimbaud, The Day on Fire (1958).nHe joined the American Mount Everest Expedition 1963 as official historian. Because of health problems he had to stay in Kathmandu. His book Americans on Everest: The Official Account of the Ascent was published in 1964. He died in Boston from cancer on July 5, 1971.

        [Quotations from Chairman Mao].

      Beijing: Central Political Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, 1964. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 16mo - over 5¾ - 6¾" tall. [Quotations from Chairman Mao]. Peking: Central Political Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, [May 1964]. 16mo (x mm). [8], 2, 2, 250 pp., including half-title printed in red, title-page printed in red and green, portrait of Chairman Mao printed in sepia, uncorrected calligraphic endorsement leaf of Lin Biao printed in black, and table of contents. Original printed paper wrappers printed in red and black. Protective vintage paper dustjacket pasted on top to the binding titled in Chinese script on front (Quotations from Chairman Mao). Provenance: Training school of Kunming (half-title annotated in Chinese). First and last blanks soiled a bit, otherwise clean and crisp. A fine copy of the rare first printing of the first edition.Created for use by the People's Liberation Army as a pocket handbook of inspirational reading, the book contains short segments taken from Mao's speeches and published writings for use in study groups as lessons for discussion amongst the soldiers. Demand for additional copies within the army required the book to get reprinted several times in 1965 (2nd edition March enlarged to 32 chapters, 3rd edition August with final 33rd chapter added). It is the second most frequently printed book in history, after the Bible, with an estimated five-billion copies produced in more than 100 languages in the past forty-five years. Early printings include a one-page facsimile of Lin's calligraphic endorsement for everyone to study Chairman Mao's writings, but following accusations of Lin's unsuccessful plot to assassinate Mao in September 1971, the government required this page to be torn out in an effort to eradicate Lin's name from modern history. Subsequent copies printed after 1971 no longer include any mention of Lin and most earlier copies that do survive have this page removed. The first printing is slightly taller than all later editions and includes an error found in the earliest form of Lin's calligraphic facsimile endorsement, where a superfluous brush stroke occurred in the 2nd vertical line from the right, 2nd character from the top. It is generally accepted that all copies comprising only thirty chapters and with text ending at page 250 are first editions. The more famous issue in red vinyl cover was simultaneously printed with those in first paper wrappers, but the vinyl took longer to produce and was thus release shortly after. Paper wrapper copies were intended for Army officers whereas those in red vinyl were produced to be shared by brigades of up to eight soldiers. (Schiller, Quotations from Chairman Mao. A short bibliographical Study, the Grolier Club, New York, 2014). Some copies contain textual errors in the final line of p.82 and the first line of p.83. As sheets for the Quotations were printed at several locations throughout China to facilitate faster distribution, no place of publication is stated; and no priority can be established for copies in which the misprints occur and those in which they do not. (Han, Sources and Early Printing History of Chairman Mao's 'Quotations,' Antiquarian Book Review, November 2003). Very Good.

      Kelly, Kansas City, Missouri, 1964. 17 1/2 x 22 1/2. Book of 12 pages printed in three columns on tan paper, in comb binding of printed orange wraps. Plus 97 broadside specimens of the wood types. All laid into a cloth solander box. Mild fading and a bit of wear to box. Contents fine. No. 4 of 45 signed copies. Beautifully printed (no easy task with wood type) by Kelly on a hand press, mostly in black with a bit of red, and some decorative pieces. In his text, Kelly describes each specimen, giving as much information as possible about the each type--its name, type of cut, manufacturer, first showing, source of design, missing components. An extraordinary visual history of American wood types, with a huge range of examples. There are only two auction records for this in the last 45 years. A rare specimen, with almost all copies (at least 32 copies) held in institutions.
