        [In Czech:] TROSECNÍKEM Z VLASTNÍ VULE. [THE VOYAGE OF THE HERETIQUE]

      Praha: Orbis, 1964. One of the most innovative binders of his time, the Czech Jan Sobota (1939-2012) produced a wide range of bindings demonstrating a remarkable store of imagination and whimsy. He studied under Karel Silenger in Pilzen and graduated from the School of Applied Arts in Prague in 1957. In 1969 he was awarded the title of "Master of Applied Arts" in bookbinding and restoration by the Czechoslovakian Minister of Culture, and in 1977 he became a member of Meister der Einbandkunst. He came to America in 1984 to work at Case Western Reserve and moved in 1990 to Dallas. The present binding, an enclosed note about which says it was executed in 1979, comes from the collection of the great British bookbinder Philip Smith. The book is a Czech edition of a book first published in 1954 about an extraordinary ocean crossing. The French physician, biologist, adventurer, and politician Alain Bombard (1924-2005) became famous in 1952 for allegedly drifting in a 15-foot rubber boat across the Atlantic in 65 days, from the Canary Islands to Barbados, without provisions. It is not entirely clear why Sobota has chosen a flask shape for the binding, as Bombard made it clear that his only liquid intake was seawater and fluids squeezed from raw fish; perhaps it was our binder's droll suggestion of an option the good doctor should have made available to himself.. 237 x 139 mm. (9 1/4 x 5 1/2"). 181, [3] pp. WHIMSICAL OLIVE-GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO IN THE SHAPE OF A LIQUOR FLASK BY JAN SOBOTA, upper board with the author's embossed initials "AB," smooth spine, a "neck" of green morocco with protruding brown leather mock cork atop the flask acting as a closure for the book, leather hinges. In the original felt-lined morocco and linen dropback box. With 12 pages of black and white photographs. Perhaps a hint of soiling to leather, but essentially in mint condition.

        Autograph Letter Signed By Martin Luther King Jr.

      Atlanta, Georgia, 1964. Autograph letter signed by Martin Luther King Jr. to Margaret Long, Editor of New South: The Journal of the Southern Regional Council. One page, on Southern Christian Leadership Conference letterhead, Dr. King corresponds with Margaret Long regarding a recently published article concerning the African American Civil Rights Movement, it is dated April 5, 1964. It reads, "For several weeks I have intended answering your letter of February 18th. A brief trip out of the country, constant absences from the city and the accumulation of a huge volume of mail account for the delay. Since I am about the leave the office again, my reply will have to be very brief. I simply want to say that I am very grateful to you for writing to me, and the temporary misunderstanding which may have developed as a result of your article in the Progressive has now passed away. I am sure that you can understand why we reacted as we did in the beginning. We felt that some of the things stated were misrepresentations of the facts. Of course, I live with misrepresentation of facts almost each day concerning my life and work, and I never bother to answer such accusations because they are usually from persons that may be considered enemies to the civil rights struggle. But when misrepresentations come from friends, you do have a different reaction. I am so sure, however, that your statements were not malicious in intent. Consequently, I hope you do not interpret our concern as representing condemnation. As you know, I have great admiration for you as a person and as a writer, and can assure you that this admiration has not been diminished one iota as a result of your article in the Progressive. I hope our paths cross again real soon. It is always good to see you. With warm personal regards. Sincerely yours, Martin." A remarkable piece offering deep insight into Martin Luther King Jr.'s daily life. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 15.5 inches by 24 inches. Margaret Long served as the editor of New South: The Journal of the Southern Regional Council from 1961 to 1966 in which she was featured in a regular column, "Strictly Subjective". The Southern Regional Council was a non-profit organization headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and founded in 1944 by Howard W. Odum to promote racial equality in the Southern United States. A coalition of lawyers, ministers, and newspaper editors from thirteen southern states, the SRC was composed mostly of white Americans. The organization's membership declined by almost half when it resolved to openly condemn segregation, stating that it "in and of itself constitutes discrimination and inequality of treatment."
