Tse-Tung, Mao
General Political Department of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, [1964]. First edition. Portrait frontispiece. [iv], 250 pp. 12mo. THE FIRST EDITION. 720 million copies of Mao's Little Red Book were printed over a four year period beginning in 1964, only the Bible has a larger print run. The first edition was published in wrappers rather than the famous red vinyl covers and is distinguished by its size - five inches tall which was later reduced to four - and has thirty rather than the thirty-three chapters of later editions. "Its idea was originally conceived by Lin Bao (1907-71) as a book of inspirational reading... For several years Lin promoted a campaign that everyone should study Chairman Mao's thoughts, and the PLA [People's Liberation Army] newspaper printed daily extracts from his selected texts that often formed topics for evening discussion groups" (Schiller). There were several proto-type versions issued in small numbers before this edition went to press with a preface dated May 1964. Schiller, J; Quotations of Chairman Mao, Grolier Club, 2014, p3. Original printed wrappers, slightly soiled, but a very good copy.

Thesiger, Wilfred
London: Longmans, 1964. First edition. [xii], 242 pp. Profusely illustrated with maps and photographs by the author. 8vo. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. A rare signed copy in lovely condition. The Marsh Arabs is an account of Thesiger's time in the marshes of southern Iraq where he lived from the end of 1951 until June 1958. He writes in the introduction: "From my recollections, helped by my diaries, I have tried to give a picture of the Marshes and of the people who live there. Recent political upheavals in Iraq have closed this area to visitors. Soon the Marshes will probably be drained; when this happens, a way of life that has lasted for thousands of years will disappear." After the enthusiastic reception of Arabian Sands, this second work "confirmed Thesiger's reputation as a writer and a photographer ... [He was celebrated for] the manner in which he travelled, the enduring relationships he forged among tribes in remote, seldom visited areas, and the way he captured for posterity fast disappearing ways of life. By the time of his death he was widely acknowledged as among the greatest of twentieth-century explorers" (ODNB). A near fine copy in original green cloth, gilt, with a fine price-clipped dust jacket.

From then until 1958, except for 1957, he spent several months every year with the marsh Arabs, sharing the communal life of the villages and travelling by canoe throughout the marshes. To escape the hot, humid marsh summers, he travelled among the mountains of western Asia and Morocco. A second book, The Marsh Arabs, published in 1964 [following Arabian Sands, 1959], confirmed Thesiger's reputation as a writer and a photographer" (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Gollancz. First edition, first impression, signed to the title page by John le Carré; the omnibus issued in July 1964 following the success of TSWCIFTC, collecting le Carré's first two novels, Call for the Dead (1961) and A Murder of Quality (1962); scarce signed.

Webb, Charles
1964. First printing of this edition, and first printing in paperback. SIGNED by the author on the title page to publisher Kurt Enoch. From the Kurt Enoch collection, with a letter of provenance included. Webb's 1963 novel follows emotionally lost college graduate Benjamin Braddock and his eventual affair with his girlfriend's mother, Mrs. Robinson. The book was written shortly after the writer himself had graduated Williams College, and three years after this copy was signed it was adapted into the classic 1967 film directed by Mike Nichols, starring Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, and Katherine Ross. Nichols would win an Academy Award for Best Director, while Hoffman, Bancroft and Ross would all earn performance nominations for their performances. Kurt Enoch was the founder of Signet Books and a publisher whose desire was to bring great literature and genre fiction out of the libraries and into the hands of readers. With a letter of provenance included. A tremendous association. Near Fine in wrappers. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

His iconoclasm and cynical nature soon clash with the "rice-bowl" system which runs the ship and the uneasy symbiosis between Chinese and foreigner on the river. Hostility towards the gunboat's presence reaches a climax when the boat must crash through a river-boom and rescue missionaries upriver at China Light Mission.

Richard Brautigan
New York: Grove Press. First edition of the outsider artist, poet and novelist's first novel. Light offsetting to endpapers. The navy cloth covers are lightly worn. A solid very good copy in price-intact dustwrapper. Larry Rivers' artwork graces the front panel. A significant copy of this book. SIGNED AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR ON NOVEMBER 19, 1964 (year of publication). " The Kygers were close associates of the Brautigan family back in the 1960's. It is easy to imagine that this was one of the first copies to be signed and dedicated to family and friends in the year of publication. Brautigan's literary reputation has risen and fallen over the years since his suicide in 1984. He variously has been included with the beat generation as well as straddling the zeitgeist of the 60's and 70's counterculture. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]

Ernest Hemingway
NY: 1964. Hemingway, Ernest. A MOVABLE FEAST. 4to, editorial typescript consisting of 148 stamp-numbered pages, beginning with the first chapter through the end of the published book. At the top of the first page is a typed label: "Title: A MOVABLE [sic] FEAST / Author: Ernest Hemingway / Pub. Date March (Scribner." The final line is in ink. The "typescript" is on paper watermarked Atlantic Bond 20 and seems to have been reproduced by offset lithography, rather than any of the plain paper xerographic systems available at the time, giving this precedence over any previously described copied or printed galley proofs. Minor typographical and punctuation corrections appear as they were made by hand on the original. The preliminary material, including the title-page epigraph, the author's preface, and Mary Hemingway's note, was apparently not part of this version since the page numbering begins with 00001. At least two different typewriters were used. The whole is contained in a plain buff folder with a penciled note indicating that it was originally sent to an advance reader for the Book-of-the-Month Club. In this case, it was Donald Gallup, who was an acknowledged expert on Hemingway and other personalities mentioned in the book, notably Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein, and other American Expatriates in Paris. This item was acquired by us from Gallup and first sold to a private collector in 1987. We are not aware of any other copy being offered for sale since then. Nor does this item appear to be cataloged in the Scribner's Archives at Princeton, The Kennedy Library, or … [Click Below for Full Description]

Warren, Earl (Chairman)
1964 United States Government Printing Office, Washington DC First Edition. Hardcover Near Fine. No Jacket 888 pages (complete). A VERY, VERY RARE and VERY COLLECTABLE copy of the official report on the assassination of President Kennedy. The submission page is SIGNED by EACH MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION: Earl Warren, Richard B Russell, John Sherman Cooper, Hale Boggs, Gerald R Ford, Allen W Dulles, John J McCloy. Please note that published copies of the report did have these signatures printed. This copy however, the same people SIGNED AGAIN in ink alongside the printed. The page is ALSO SIGNED by J Lee Rankin, General Counsel. It is incredibly rare to encounter a copy with ALL commission members' contemporary, personal signatures. The signatures are wonderfully fresh, bold. The book is held in a matching blue cloth covered box. Blue leather spine with five ridges, gilt titling. The spine is handsome, smart. The sides have some mild scuffing, even lighter wear. The box is healthy and sound. The boards of the book are also covered in presidential blue. The front face has a stamped gilt seal of the United States. The boards have light wear, some scuffing and shelving marks, some pulling wear to the head and foot of the spine. They are otherwise steady, assured. The contents are most pleasing. The early pages have shallow evidence of handling. However, the pages are very clean and clear, confident, tidy, neat, smart, certain, fresh-as almost new! A copy BOLD with History! fk.

Ono, Yoko (author)
Wuntemaum Press, 1964. First Edition. One of 500 copies printed, preceding the UK edition by four years. INSCRIBED by Yoko Ono on the first blank: "To Helen, / 1966, opening / Judson Church Gallery / NYC, NY / Yoko Ono." The author, poet, and conceptual artist's first book. The inscription almost certainly refers to opening night of "The Stone" on March 10th, 1966, a collaborative environment conducted by Ono's then-husband, Anthony Cox. Michael Mason supplied sound forms, Jon Hendricks supplied "air", and Jeff Perkins a film message. For her part, Ono contributed "Eye Bags": black bags which participants crawled inside of and could see through, although they could not be seen within by spectators--in effect the inverse of a one-way mirror. Ono's first book, a groundbreaking conceptual piece made up of "event scores," series of actions, ideas, or instructions that take the place of physical works of art and can be performed by another individual (an example being the piece titled, "Painting to Exist Only When It's Copied or Photographed: Let people copy or photograph your paintings. Destroy the originals.") While a handful of signed copies have have shown up in commerce in the last couple of decades, most have generic inscriptions referencing a season, e.g. 1965, Autumn. This is the only copy we have encountered with a contemporary inscription that can be pinpointed to a time and place-and most importantly, one of Ono's own installations. Very Good or better in original white perfect bound wrappers. Wrappers lightly soiled and foxed, with some of the usual production wrinkl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Diter Rot [Dieter Roth]
Philadelphia: Diter Rot, 1964. Condition: See description. Irregularly cut diazotype sheet, approximately 23 x 35", folded twice, with glue remnants at verso. Titled in graphite in Rot's hand "an almost dummy", with a note at bottom edge reading "sorry D. R. 64". In 1964, Rot was invited to Philadelphia to create an artists' book in collaboration with Eugene Feldman, who had been impressed by Rot's 'Book' published earlier that year. Rot's visit coincided with his impressive turn towards chance, mess, materiality and the everyday, and the collaboration foundered. Rot ended up continuing his work at the Philedelphia Museum College of Art. The institution planned to publish a paperback version following his donation of the singular work to the institution, but Rot, in a glorious turn towards materiality and participation, pinned up the "outtakes" of the work, and invited students to drink aquavit and take what they wanted. This print was taken by a student of Rot's at the time. An edition would eventually be published by Editions Et, and then six years later by Rot himself, but this print represents the first distribution of the book. A rare survivor from one of the most important artists' books of the 20th century.

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). None of this was enough to frighten off Ed Sanders, who had it "printed, published and zapped at a secret location in the lower east side." Maynard & Miles A9. A fine example.

Lee, Harper; Nora Gal' & Raisa Oblonskaya (translators)
Moscow: Molodaya Gvardia, 1964. First Russian Book Edition. Hardcover. Good. 351,[1] pp., with several in-text illustrations. Cloth-backed pictorial paper over boards. Early Russian ink inscription and inkstamp on rear pastedown. in A few small scribbles in blue ink on covers and ink stains on cloth. Edges of boards lightly worn, front hinge cracked. Contents lightly toned, but surprisingly fresh for the quality of the paper. A good copy. The pirated first Russian book edition, after a 1963 appearance in the periodical INOSTRANAYA LITERATURA ("Foreign Literature") and a 1964 special separate issue of ROMAN-GAZETA ("Novel as Newspaper"). Like other books by foreign authors published in the USSR at the time, this edition is a piracy, with no royalties paid to the author. Nevertheless, it was a major undertaking, engaging major Russian literary talents of the day, with the still-authoritative translation by Nora Gal (1912-1991) and Raisa Oblonskaya (1924-2010), an introduction by celebrated literary critic Raisa Orlova (1918-1989), and design and illustrations by the brilliant graphic artist Nikolay Grishin (1921-1985).

New York: Harper & Row, 3 January 1964. First Edition. Stiff Wraps. Near Fine. Uncorrected Proof consisting of long galleys (24" x 6-3/4") bound in stiff plain wraps with a brown binder's tape on the spine. Pasted to the first page is the publisher's slip giving information about the book including a "probable publication date" of 3 January 1964. The second and final of the Wapshot novels, the first having won a National Book Award. A very scarce format for this title. Obviously very few of these over- and odd-sized advance copies were made. The only other copy we could locate had been bastardized by being cut up so that the size would be more like a typical book. Laid in loosely are two circular (diameter of 6-1/4") original watercolor apparent title labels for this copy.

The book itself is unremarkable, however, it is signed by the author, himself the winner of the 3000 metres steeplechase Gold Medal at the 1956 Melbourne Games. It is also signed by Harold Maurice Abrahams, the winner of the 100 metres Gold Medal at the 1924 Paris Games, immortalised in the film "Chariots of Fire"; and by Roger Gilbert Bannister who did not win an Olympic medal but won the 800 metres Bronze Medal at the 1950 European Championships in Brussels, the 1500 metres Gold Medal at the 1954 European Championships in Bern, the 1 Mile Gold Medal at the 1954 Empire Games in Vancouver and of course broke the 4-minute mile.

Ian Hamilton Finlay
1964. 279 x 163 mm. Concrete poem by Ian Hamilton Finlay. Card printed in blue and orange. With handwritten dedication to the verso, signed by Finlay, and dated in pencil '64'. A rare small print on card, only this and 2 other copies are known (National Library of Scotland and University of Buffalo). The typeface and spacing of words is reminiscent of Finlay's first concrete poems in 'Rapel' (Wild Hawthorn Press, 1963). This is landscape format, as opposed to the portrait format of the 'Rapel' prints. The theme of the Apostles ('nets' and 'fish') and the three wise men ('star', 'nights'), is confirmed by the inscription 'Happy Christmas' on the verso. Buffalo's copy also has Christmas greeting by Finlay on verso. Condition: some foxing and stains to the recto, a fold to the center, some wear to corners and edges. Overall VG.
