Proof copy of the first impression of the first UK edition. ***Kurt Vonnegut's fifth novel, published four years before Slaughterhouse Five. ***Very good in red Jonathan Cape logo printed red card wrappers, with publisher's original typed blurb on white paper pasted to front wrapper, and dated the month of October, as called for. Child's blue biro scribble to front free endpaper [which at first glance resembles a wild version of Vonnegut's signature!]. Light reading creases to spine. Spine tight. All other pages clean. Red paper wrapper bright. ***In a good precursory variant trial mauve and pink colour illustrated outsize dustwrapper, with original publisher's price of 21s net. Dustwrapper rubbed and creased. Child's small blue biro light scribble over titles to front panel of dustwrapper. Small scuffs to front panel of dustwrapper.

Top edge of rear panel of dustwrapper creased, rubbed with tiny tears. ***200mm x 132mm. 217 pages. ***'Kurt Vonnegut has been called by Graham Greene "one of the best living American writers"; this is his best book. ***It infiltrates its subject (which might be called the American way of life) and leaves it apparently as solid as ever but, in face, riddled. ***It concerns the Rosewaters, a multi-millionaire American family whose fortune originated in the great bygone days of laissez-faire, bribery and corruption. ***In particular, it is about the family's sole prospective heir, Eliot Rosewater. His eccentricity is that he give money away without even requiring them to feel grateful. In a drab room in a small Indiana town he operates a one-man benevolent aid society. He helps people. It makes him happy. ***It also makes him, by most standards, crazy. To prove that he actually is crazy (and thereby divert the vast Rosewater inheritance to a more tractable distant cousin) is the aim of Mushari, a lawyer. ***The plot moves over the whole spectrum of American life, sparing nothing and no one, except Eliot Rosewater himself and a science fiction writer named Trout.' (Quote from typed printed publisher's blurb label pasted to front cover and inside front and rear dustwrapper blurb). ***'One of the best living American writers' Graham Greene.' (Review quote from rear of trial dustwrapper blurb). ***A rare proof of the first impression of the first UK edition complete with ultra scarce precursor variant illustrated dustwrapper, of interest to collectors of Kurt Vonnegut and rare literary first editions and first edition proof copies. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Terry Southern and John Gielgud on the set of "The Loved One" (Original photograph)

      London and Los Angeles: MGM / Filmways, 1965. Vintage single weight still photograph of noted screenwriter Terry Southern with British actor John Gielgud on the set of Tony Richardson's seminal 1965 black comedy, "The Loved One." On the verso is a printed ditto-style mimeo description of the shot and a blurb for the film. "The Loved One" has always been overshadowed by Terry Southern's screenplay from the year before it, "Dr. Strangelove," but remains an important companion piece to that film. Whereas "Strangelove" was a meditation on war from an American perspective, "The Loved One" is more a meditation on death and Hollywood from the British point of view. Photographs of Southern at work, particularly on films, are rare in our experience. 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Near Fine, with slight bleed of the mimeo printing to the image, as is typical.

        Archive - Author's Travels Through Turkey - Includes Maps & Illustrations - "Turkey Observed"

      Turkey 1965 - Turkey, 1965. Document archive of a journey to Turkey made by author and poet R. P. Lister, featuring his original 426 page manuscript travel diary, 22 manuscript drawings made during his travels, over 500 pages of heavily annotated draft typescripts and notes for the making of his book including extracts from his diary, some 100 pages of unpublished material also in typescript and annotated, 2 pencil drawings and measurements for designing the book's illustrated boards, 55 page bibliography notes in manuscript, and 1 signed letter to the publisher. Together with travel receipts and vouchers, sightseeing pamphlets, maps, and an official stamped Press Member travel visa being an approved photographic identification issued to him by the Turkish ministry of tourism and publicity, [Turizm ve Tanitma Bakanligi Basin Karti]. The lot in very good condition, contained in the author's own original folders and envelopes inscribed in manuscript. The University of Texas, Harry Ransom Center, holds a collection of R. P. Lister manuscripts relating to the London literary society. Including unpublished material from the cutting room floor so-to-speak, and several manuscript drawings, this archive forms the complete, firsthand, original account, with candid remarks of personal observations, made by Richard Percival Lister during his travels in Turkey, and serves to illustrate the acclaimed author's fastidious work for the making of his book. Having travelled widely through Turkey, Lister's account is vast in scope yet specific and detailed, also illustrated in his own hand. In keeping with his reputation, his account renders a feeling of personal experience as he shares his own without reservation. Adding depth to his observations of the country, he delves into historical events which influenced its present state. In getting to know the people, he learns much about the "Armenian dream of independence" at the turn of the century, and on this subject he reviews Greek origins of the place, Armenian uprisings, the Greek invasion of Anatolia, and so forth. Turkish culture and tradition appear throughout as he travels to Istanbul, ancient Troy and Ephesus, Kars, Lake Van, Antioch, Antalya, Samsun, and Trebizond on the great Anatolian plateau. The archive consist of the following: R. P. Lister's manuscript travel diary: 426 pages in 8 paper 12mo pocket journals, pagination continuing in each subsequent volume which is labeled and numbered in manuscript to front. Also containing an additional 113 pages of notes such as expenses, hotels, contacts. 22 Manuscript drawings made by the author whilst in Turkey, in pencil and ink, each on separate leafs, measuring approximately 20 x 13 cm, many or all to be published in his book about Turkey. On his travels, Lister made drawings of the Turkish people, of historic places, and of striking views. Some of these include the Yedikule Fortress (captioned 15/8/65), musicians and other civilians, the village of beehive houses at Harran in Upper Mesopotamia, Istanbul's Galata Bridge built in 1912 by a German firm over the Golden Horn and extending to the Yeni Cami Mosque, and the perimeter of a once fortified city with walls and towers of stone. Over 100 pages of typescript unpublished material, with annotations, but excluded from final publication copy. Together in a folder with manuscript notes 36 pages of varying sizes, an outline "Plan of the Turkey book," and a partial typed copy of his diary covering the first twelve days of travel. In this lot, we also learn that Lister's original planned title for the book was "The Dark Tower." Excerpts from the unpublished leafs: "This affair shows. that unorthodox travel is productive of unorthodox experiences, and that the Turks are likely to be as civilised when mishaps occur as anybody else." "Tarsus is unusual in that its name remains unchanged from Biblical times. Adana is a very Arab town; Marsin even more so. There are Hittite remains here and there." ". the great Ci

        Signed 1965 Allan D'Arcangelo Paris Review Serigraph

      1965 - "Paris Review" by Allan D'Arcangelo, Signed Serigraph printed in 1965 from an edition size of 150. The overall is size of the Serigraph is 40 x 26.25 inches. The condition of this piece has been graded as B: Very Good Condition, with slight signs of handling or age. Here is some supplemental information about the Serigraph: Edition of 150, signed and numbered by the artist. The Paris Review publishes writings and poetry by aspiring writers young and old. The publications are paid for partly by the sale of artwork created and sold by the Paris Review.D’Arcangelo is better known for his pictures of highways and roadblocks, which pictured deep perspectival vistas in a simplified, flat plane, the view as seen from the driver’s seat as one zooms along the seemingly never-ending American highway in most any state. Next came a series "Barriers," in which cropped, abstracted imagery of road barriers were superimposed over the one-point perspectival highway vistas. These were a move further towards concern with abstract, two-dimensionality without negating the element culled from seen aspects of the American landscape. The series called "Constellations" (there are 120 in all) further abstracted the view of road barriers into perspectival, jutting patterns thrusting across the canvas against a white ground. The element of the seen is never obliterated and always primary in D’Arcangelo’s dialectic, as amply evidenced in his return to highway imagery in the 1970s. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Collection of Original Drawings, 1963 - 2001

      An important and interesting collection of five original pencil drawings of various sizes, together with a signed program and an original photograph. Simply matted and backed (not attached) by foamcore, inscribed on the verso with details in the hand of Frederick Maddox. Provenance: The estate of Frederick Maddox/Lincoln Kirstein. Details as follows:The Painting Gallery at the Glass House. Original architectural print on paper with drawings in pencil throughout. 34.5 x 42.5 cm, stamped lower right "Philip Johnson Associates/Architects / 375 Park Avenue...". Designed by Philip Johnson and constructed in 1965, the Painting Gallery is an earth-berm structure, a modern interpretation of the ancient monument, the Treasury of Atreus in Mycenae, Greece. Shaped roughly like a cloverleaf, the structure resembles a large grassy mound on the outside with concrete roof deck forming a cap on top. The building houses Johnson's earthly treasures and an important part of his legacy: his art collection. This collection tells the story of Johnson as a patron of the arts, as well as the story of his relationship with his partner, David Whitney. Johnson had been involved with The Museum of Modern Art since its establishment in 1929, but after meeting David Whitney in 1960, Johnson became an avid art collector. In 1986 Johnson donated the Glass House property to the National Trust, and two years after his death in 2005, it opened to the public as a historic site.Original drawing on white paper approx 13 x 22 cm. Signed and dated lower right "P.J. 2.12.63," identified on the mount verso as a sketch done while expressing his "admiration of Sullivan's building in Soho and his theatre in Chicago," and also (in reference to the lower area of the drawing) while "currently fascinated by ancient Egyptian palace walls (exterior)." Original drawing on thin yellow paper 16.5 x 26.5 cm. Identified on the mount verso as a 1963 sketch for the "Amon Carter Musuem / Elevation (Facade) / Plan of Building."Original drawing on thin yellow paper 18 x 27 cm. Identified on the mount verso as a late 1980's "Sketch #1 of a sequence," done "in studio of New Canaan property."Original large drawing on thin yellow paper 31 x 41 cm, signed and dated 2001 in ink. The structure is unidentified, though may related to the PPG Place in Pittsburgh, PA. Program from the New York City Ballet premiere of A Mass (Missa Sicca), presented in memory of Joseph Duell and signed on the cover in black ink "PHilip Johnson." The production, made possible by a gift "given in admiration of Philip Johnson's and Lincoln Kirstein's remarkable achievements," was staged by Peter Martins and Robert LaFosse to a commissioned score by Michael Torke, staged by Alain Vaes as inspired by Johnson's designs for a still unbuilt "Pilgrimage Chapel." Together with an original Frederick Maddox color photograph of Philip Johnson and David Whitney at the NY State Theater watching the NYCB performance. The influential American architect Philip Johnson is especially known for his postmodern work since the 1980s. In 1930, he founded the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. In 1978 he was awarded an American Institute of ArchitectsGold Medal and in 1979 the first Pritzker Architecture Prize.The architect Frederick Maddox (1939 - 2013), was early on encouraged by Philip Johnson and it was he who introduced him to Lincoln Kirstein and his wife Fidelma, with whom he then had a long and enduring friendship, inheriting their home in Weston upon their deaths. Maddox established his architectural firm in 1975, and for 38 years provided architectural and engineering services in the Manhattan and Long Island areas.

        Warren Beatty on the set of Mickey One (Still photograph from the 1965 film)

      Los Angeles: Florin / Columbia Pictures, 1965. Vintage black-and-white single weight still photograph from the US release of the 1965 film. Some say that the New Hollywood era began with Bonnie and Clyde in 1967, others say Mickey One in 1965. Either way you look at it, the director was Arthur Penn. A striking candid photograph of Warren Beatty from the set of the film, his profile cut in half by the vertical glass cutline between two swinging doors. Beatty was not only the muse for Penn's avant-garde tale of a comic who runs afoul of the mob, but also the crazed youngster who would get Penn assigned to Bonnie and Clyde and initiate the second golden age of cinema. Stan Getz composed and arranged the progressive and somewhat classical score for the film, where he performed improvisations against the backdrop of a full orchestra. Set in Chicago, and shot on location there. In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass. 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Fine.

        The Orchard Keeper

      New York: Random House, 1965. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. A Near Fine copy of McCarthy's first book, in like dust jacket. The top stain is partially faded, there is a small bump on the lower edge of the rear board and evidence of a bookplate removed from the front free end paper. The dust jacket is price-clipped and has minor toning and wear at the extremities. Despite the defects an attractive copy and, on the whole, a bright, unfaded copy of this scarce debut. Tracing Biblical themes from the book of Genesis, McCarthy's first novel illustrates the politics of four men in an idyllic hamlet in rural Tennessee and its ultimate demise. The bliss of their home, in communion with nature, is shaken by a greedy antagonist that throws them from their Eden and peels away their innocence and ignorance. Upon its release, "The Orchard Keeper" won the William Faulkner Foundation notable first novel award in 1966 and established a solid foundation for McCarthy's early career. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
