Austin, Sean - Recipient.
1963 - 1964. 69 letters, 1 postcard. Some letters include enclosures, mostly clippings. There are several loose clippings, perhaps alienated from letters, and two undated letters, one from Vance and one from Dorothy. There are five black-and-white snapshots with typed descriptions, apparently of the Austin's residence in Bogota. The material is in excellent condition, with no mold, stains, or insect damage. Item #46607 This archive consists of 69 letters and 1 postcard, all addressed to Sean Austin during the period September 1963 to May of 1964, when Sean was a student at Lawrence College in Appleton, Wisconsin. 42 letters are from Sean's parents, H. Vance Austin (ca. 1910-1993) and Dorothy Hampton Austin (ca. 1912-1991), and often include salutations to "Pam and Bob," perhaps Sean's siblings. The letters from Vance have extraordinary research value for their political and cultural content. 27 of the letters are from Kay Buchholz, a young woman who is a friend of Sean's recount Kay's early months in college in Wisconsin, and provide a portrait of the concerns, attitudes, and activities of a young American woman in the early 1960s. There is one brief letter to Sean, in English and Spanish, from Kathy Chamorro, a young Colombian woman. H. Vance Austin was the Director of the Peace Corps in Colombia, and his letters to his son, usually accompanied by hand-written notes by Mrs. Austin, offer a wealth of detail about a Peace Corps program for establishing economic co-ops, and conditions in Colombia in the early 1960s generally.

PORT OF LONDON AUTHORITY
Port of London Authority, Trinity Square, E.C.3,, [London], 1964. The Tilbury docks Lithographed map, dissected and mounted on linen, folding into original maroon covers, title in gilt. Tilbury Docks in Essex were opened in 1886 by the East and West India Docks Company. Tilbury was best known for the speech given there by Elizabeth I to her troops before the invasion of the Spanish Armada in 1588. The dock was built as a counter to the opening of the Royal Albert Dock by the London and St Katherine Dock Company; the two firms competed jealously for territorial advantage on the Thames. The opening of the container port in Tillbury in 1967 marked the end for the docks further up the Thames and heralded the new age of container shipping. The Port of London Authority was formed in 1909. It was prompted by a series of industrial actions by dock workers, including their demand for the 'Docker's Tanner', a wage of 6d. an hour, in 1889. The Port was a vital part of the British economy: refining and processing industries grew up around goods brought in to the docks and it was the centre of British shipbuilding and repair. The PLA continues to supervise and manage the Port of London, the docks, and the London stretch of the River Thames. This map was issued from the former PLA headquarters in Trinity Square.

UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS PRESS, 1964. The Invention Of Morel and Other Stories ADOLFO BIOY CESARES 1st PRINTING / 1st EDITION UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS PRESS 1964 ____________ FINE+ CONDITION WITH EXTREMELY LIGHT SHELF-WEAR; DUST JACKET IN FINE CONDITION WITH LIGHT EDGE-WEAR AND LIGHT TONING TO FRONT AND REAR FLAPS; SMALL CLOSED TEAR AT "SIMMS" ON THE SPINE. INCLUDES ARCHIVAL DUST JACKET COVER. DEFINITIONS OF CONDITION : VERY FINE (AS NEW/MINT) ~ Very Fine means the book is in the same immaculate condition as when it emerged from the bindery. There are no defects or marks, and the dust jacket (if it was issued with one) must be perfect and without any tears. In short, it is a copy that is close to perfect in every respect. It should be noted that in the real world, Very Fine books are relatively uncommon, and that most Antiquarian Booksellers use Fine as the highest condition grading. FINE ~ Fine is marginally less than perfect, and may designate a book that is still new, or a book that has been carefully read. The use of the term Fine (as compared to Near Fine or Very Good) often depends on when the book was published. A recent book should have no notable defects at all. But the dustjacket of a Fine older book may have a small closed tear, or be a little rubbed, even a bit worn at the edges. Such defects, if present, must be minor and should always be noted. (Note also that a book may be new and unread, but it may have aged on the shelf to the point of being considered Near Fine or even Very Good. Similarly a unique 200-year-old book might be viewed as "Fine", while a recent book in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Becker, Robert H.
The Book Club of California, printed by The Grabhorn Press, 1964. Limited Edition. Hardcover. One of 400 copies, folio size, [122] pp., with original sales correspondence slipped in. Near fine. In 1961 the U.S. District Court in San Francisco decided to place a large collection of diseños (sketches presented to Mexican governors with petitions for land grants) in the Bancroft Library for safekeeping, which made them accessible for publication in this monumental work. The diseños are all unique in themselves, drawn up by the petitioners in a variety of mediums, and selected for this volume by foremost expert Robert Becker, who wrote an explanatory essay to accompany each of the thirty-seven examples. " 'No other single group of documents so vividly and poignantly reveals the devastating, catastrophic changes that were visited upon the Californios in a mere twenty years', Becker wrote in the 'California Monthly' of March 1963" (N.B., from BCC bibliography). Roby Wentz, the Grabhorn historian, called it "one of the great Grabhorn books." One of the many books the Grabhorn brothers printed for The Book Club of California, and one which well shows their mastery of the great art of printing. ___DESCRIPTION: Quarter linen and terra cotta, yellow, brown and white decorative paper covered boards, initial letters in title, preface and introduction in red, thirty-seven tipped-in plates (twenty-four fold-out) of which twenty-six are in colour (not included in pagination), with thirty-seven line sketches of maps in text; Centaur type (both handset and monotype), machine made paper, foli … [Click Below for Full Description]

Used with wear and tear. Viking Press 1964. Technically the Viking edition was published before the UK edition making it the first, but thereafter UK editions are the true firsts. Signing events were rare in those days, not like today. These early signed copies were usually to friends and family, before they were even released into book stores. You can tell by the style of signature and handwriting what are early signed copies. We are selling a special Wilbur collection on behalf of a client. Wilbur will be releasing his memoirs this Spring so now it the time to invest again. From early 2000's until 2011 we were the world's largest dealer of Wilbur's early and signed books. It was our privilege to meet him privately, including at his home, to have him verify signed books and to line-sign books for me only (Niso would not allow the practice for long). He was concerned about the integrity of those dealers selling his signed books and it was a great honor to become friends with him for a time. Him and Niso also bought rarer copies as well as other memorabilia from me like film scripts. After the rarest titles, like this one, were sold into collections, I moved onward in my book dealing focus. One of the secrets of the trade I can share with you is that neither authors or publishers kept the old records of what was published how, when or why. No one thought to keep the written records of contemporary books and most information has been carried word of mouth, embellished on the way or frankly just made up. (that has certainly changed now).

Used with wear and tear. Heinemann 1964. Signing events were rare in those days, not like today. These early signed copies were usually to friends and family, before they were even released into book stores. You can tell by the style of signature and handwriting what are early signed copies. This was to Daniel's father during a stay in the hospital. Wilbur told me he didn't like the man. (This was in the context of buying the book from me due to its personal association inscription). I'm sure this was a joke as we sometimes make of our in-laws. The Sunbird is Wilbur's favorite book and the emblem features on his personal letterhead and as a logo. I think the story was based on one of his earliest exploration adventures, something he did between writing books. We are selling a special Wilbur collection on behalf of a client.

These early signed copies were usually to friends and family, before they were even released into book stores. You can tell by the style of signature and handwriting what are early signed copies. With a tipped in newspaper article as shown. The Wehlburg's were neighbors of the Smiths in Wilbur's youth. He couldn't remember anymore about them other than they ask him to personally inscribe a copy on release of the book. As friends of his parents, not him, it was a somewhat awkward obligation as we all can related. I can say from personal experience Wilbur is a kind man and loyal to his fans and would have appreciated the Wehlburg's request, even as friends of his parents.

1964. Very rare copy of issue 16 of Marvin Malone's wormwood Review. This was the first special Bukowski issue, with an 8 page Bukowski only center-section on yellow paper. What makes this copy so unique is that it was also the very first signed/limited edition, done in a very small issue of 24 signed and numbered. In many years of collecting Bukowski, this is only the second one of these I've ever seen come to market. I know there's a great deal of Bukowski stuff out there, but this is something very special for the serious collector. In fine condition, priced much lower than the copy sold a few years back.

The finished retyped version of the above working manuscript. 4. A copy of the issue of Cosmopolitan magazine (Volume 155, Number 2) in which the condensed version of The Chill was published in August 1963.

Museum Books, 1964. Limited Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9" to 12" tall Signed by Author(s). Fine / Fine. Hermann Zapf (1918-2015) was one of the most influential typographers of the early digital age, having a career that "spanned the glory days of hot metal composition right through to the rise of the Apple Mac"; his creations continue to inspire today. Interestingly it's Zapf's Dingbats that may have had the biggest impact on modern communication, as these formed the basis for Unicode's symbols, which in turn paved the way for the now-ubiquitous emoji. This book presents 78 specimen pages of Zapf's typography, mostly of title-pages, but also included are some text pages and even a self-cover for a catalogue. A lovely display of the incredible talent of a gifted type designer. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in half green laid paper over a vellum shelfback with vellum tips, gilt lettering on the spine, title page in red, blue and black, Preface in English, German and French, specimens are both bound and tipped in, most are in black but several are in various ink colours, at the end is a listing of each specimen and its typographical details; large quarto in size (approximately 12" tall), text unpaginated. There were three published versions, the German, French and American editions, the American edition was limited to 500 copies of which this is no. 448, signed by Herman Zapf.

The first separate edition of this section of the Yage Letters, which the "paranoid printers" of the City Lights edition in England refused to print. The missing section was first published in the 9th issue of Diane Di Prima and Leroi Jones' Floating Bear, which brought the censors down on them (though they beat the charges).

Morgan, Dale L. (Editor)
The Old West Publishing Company, 1964. First Edition. Hardcover. This is Number 176 of 250 copies signed by Dale L. Morgan. An extensive compilation of letters, newspaper reports, and diaries collected from the Missouri Historical Society, Library of Congress, and the National Archives pertaining to William H. Ashley (1778-1838) and the organization and expeditions of the Missouri Fur Company. Ashley's famous advertisement in St. Louis newspapers in the winter of 1822 ("The subscribers wish to engage One Hundred Men to ascend the Missouri river to the Rocky Mountains, there to be employed as hunters") was a clarion call to a generation of bold young men like Jedediah Smith, Jim Bridger, Hugh Glass, and William Sublette who opened the continent to American expansion. Morgan (1914-71) considered this his most significant historical work. Numerous illustrations from historical sources, including a color frontispiece by Charles Bodmer, with two facsimiles and three maps, including a large folding map at the rear. Designed and printed by Alfred and Lawton Kennedy. Folio. In a one-half brown leather over brown cloth binding, with a gilt-stamped red leather spine label and three raised bands. A fine copy, housed in the publisher's slipcase. Fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
