        Autograph Letter Signed, 2 pp on one 4to sheet of printed personalized stationery, Bridgewater, CT., Oct. 27, 1965

      Philip Evergood writes to Sidney Hill regarding, among other things, Sidney's catalogue of his Charles Dana Gibson show. Sidney Hill was co-owner. at the time, with his brother, Henry, of Berry-Hill Galleries in New York. Henry and Sidney moved from London to New York during World War II and established Berry-Hill Galleries. While they were scholars of and dealers in antiquities and gold boxes, they became known in America for dealing in American art. Berry-Hill had an exhibition from October 1 - November 15, 1965 of "Charles Dana Gibson, 1867-1944: Creator of the 'Gibson Girl'," an exhibition of over 100 original Gibson black and white drawings from the artist's collection. Evergood says that he is a "great admirer of Gibson for in his smooth way he is a social satirist of great stature like George Grosz was in a savage way." Evergood says that he is not sure he will get to see the exhibition because of "my wife's broken arm" and "some of my own problems which include great pressures of work?." Evergood was with Dintenfass Gallery in 1963 and left them to join Ziunta Gerst's Gallery 63 in New York. He exhibited at Gallery 63 and in Rome at their La Galleria 63 during 1963 and 1964. But in 1965 "Gallery 63 suddenly closed without warning" as he tells Sidney in this letter. So, as he also tells Sidney, it was in 1965 that he then went to Hammer Galleries, owned by Victor Hammer. Evergood must have been preparing at this time for what would be his first one-man show with Hammer Galleries which occurred in 1967. He didn't stay long there, however, as, according to details in "Philip Evergood: Never Separate from the Heart," by Kendall Taylor (page 20), in 1970 he left Hammer for Kennedy Galleries. Evergood reminds Sidney that since he was only interested in his work on an exhibition basis, he had to go elsewhere to "seek a permanent anchor," saying that he had "recently? joined the Hammer Galleries." He then speaks highly of owner Victor Hammer who "has great plans to how my work abroad." While in the 1930s, the Hammer Galleries were the first in the west to exhibit the Faberge eggs, by the 1960s they were focused on 19th and 20th century European and American Masters. In a side note, after the P.S., Evergood asks his correspondent if he has "seen the Kahns lately." This reference is most likely to Mr. & Mrs. Harry Kahn (1916-1999) who the Frick Collection "Archives Directory for the History of Collecting in America" lists as an art collector, an investment advisor and a philanthropist who served on the board of the Brooklyn Museum until 1997 and founder of its Contemporary Arts Council.An informative letter showing the working life of the artist, moving from gallery to gallery, preparing for exhibitions, and commenting on other artists. Signed "Phil Evergood" and again with initials in the P.S.

        Saint Sophia in Istanbul

      Washington, DC: The Dumbarton Oaks Center for Byzantine Studies, Trustees for Harvard University, & Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection,, 1965 & 1986. An Architectural Survey. Atlas folio (908 × 595 mm) Original blue-green portfolio, gilt lettering on spine, and front board. Colour view of Saint Sophia and 46 loose plates of architectural renderings, offset and collotype; the two sewn as issued 8-page introductory texts with contents lists laid-in. First edition, complete in both instalments - published over twenty years apart - and uncommon thus. This apparently number 96 of 750 copies. "So seldom in the history of architecture has there appeared, seemingly without precedent, a monument of such remarkable scale and structural form as Justinian's Great Church of Saint Sophia that the origin of its conception and the means by which it was constructed within the limitations of experience and materials of its period pose problems of consuming interest" (Foreword). Nearly a half century in the completion, the project was initiated in 1936 by William Emerson, at the time Dean of the School of Architecture at MIT, who had travelled to Istanbul in order to see "the exquisite mosaics that were then being recovered from beneath Fossati's plaster by Thomas Whittemore, founder of the Byzantine Institute". He realised that the previous years' secularisation of the mosque as the State Museum of the Turkish Republic "created a long-awaited opportunity to advance our knowledge of this monument unique in the history of architectural development". The project began with "the limited aim of setting down details of a single one of Saint Sophia's four buttresses, the scope of the survey, as it became increasingly clear that by inspection and measurement alone unsuspected amounts of invaluable and hitherto unknown internal evidence could be assembled, was progressively expanded until finally it encompassed the entire main structure as well as later accretions on its periphery. In sum, the study provides a framework and indispensable point of departure for examining any of the numerous architectural, structural, or historical questions connected with more than fourteen hundred years of the building's continuous use". This copy from the library of William L. MacDonald, (1921-2010), noted architectural historian, author of Early Christian and Byzantine Architecture, The Architecture of the Roman Empire, and The Pantheon: Design, Meaning, and Progeny, who participated in the excavation of the mosaics at Haghia Sophia in the early 50s when studying for his A.M. at Harvard, his ownership inscription to front pastedown of the portfolio, and to the front panel of the wraps of "Installment [sic.] I". Superb, sought-after, and with a splendid provenance.

        Behavior of Prices on Wall Street:

      Analysis Press, Chappaqua, New York 1965 - First edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. One of a numbered copies signed by Arthur A. Merrill. In fine condition. The signed limited edition is rare. Arthur Merrill is one of the most prominent stock market statisticians ever to practice the craft in the market. "There are few market patterns that occur with such unbelievable regularity that you must become aware of them . No one, to my knowledge, has engaged in more in-depth research than Arthur Merrill. Merrill's Behavior of Prices is an excellent work on the subject." This book concentrates on the profitable study of timing. The author has found the market to be similar to a warped roulette wheel. At certain predictable times, it has a definite bias upward; at other predictable times, the inclination is downward. A knowledge of this bias is useful to long-term as well as short-term investors in the improvement of buying and selling prices. The text is addressed to non-mathematical investors, and includes all of the suggestions for profit. In addition, serious students will find useful material in the appendixes. The pioneering work of Art Merrill in his classic book, The Behavior of Prices on Wall Street, clearly demonstrates the statistical reliability of pre-holiday behavior in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Merrill showed that the odds of a higher-price close on the day before major U.S. holidays were not only very high but also statistically significant.

        El Circulo Hermetico. De Hermann Hesse a C. G. Jung. [Envoi autographe signe de Miguel Serrano]

      Santiago, Zig-Zag, 1965.. 8°. 247 pages. Edition originale, broche / Softcover. Tres bon etat. Tres rare !! Signed and inscribed. Very rare !. Miguel Serrano (10 September 1917 - 28 February 2009) was a Chilean diplomat, explorer, and author of poetry, books on spiritual questing and Esoteric Hitlerism. Serrano's anti-modernist neo-Gnostic philosophy claims to elucidate the extraterrestrial origin of the Hyperborean-descended Aryan race, image-bearers of the Godhead, and postulates a global conspiracy against them by an evil inferior godlet: The Demiurge, worshipped by the Jewish people, lord of planet Earth, spawner of the primitive hominid stocks, and author of all base materiality. Serrano foremostly synthesized the Hindu-Vedic and Nordic-Germanic religious traditions, both of which he considered to be of ancient Aryan-Hyperborean provenance, in addition to particularly esoteric and racialist interpretations of Buddhism, Christianity (or "Kristianism"), Luciferianism (not to be confused with Satanism), and Gnosticism. He was especially indebted to the Jungian theory of collective racial archetypes, borrowed heavily from Julius Evola in supporting a spiritual consideration of race, as opposed to a solely biological one, and followed Savitri Devi in recognizing Adolf Hitler as an avatar (a divine incarnation) who battled against the demonic materialistic hosts of the Kali Yuga.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2 pp on one 4to sheet of printed personalized stationery, Bridgewater, CT., Oct. 27, 1965

      Philip Evergood writes to Sidney Hill regarding, among other things, Sidney's catalogue of his Charles Dana Gibson show. Sidney Hill was co-owner. at the time, with his brother, Henry, of Berry-Hill Galleries in New York. Henry and Sidney moved from London to New York during World War II and established Berry-Hill Galleries. While they were scholars of and dealers in antiquities and gold boxes, they became known in America for dealing in American art. Berry-Hill had an exhibition from October 1 - November 15, 1965 of "Charles Dana Gibson, 1867-1944: Creator of the 'Gibson Girl'," an exhibition of over 100 original Gibson black and white drawings from the artist's collection. Evergood says that he is a "great admirer of Gibson for in his smooth way he is a social satirist of great stature like George Grosz was in a savage way." Evergood says that he is not sure he will get to see the exhibition because of "my wife's broken arm" and "some of my own problems which include great pressures of work...." Evergood was with Dintenfass Gallery in 1963 and left them to join Ziunta Gerst's Gallery 63 in New York. He exhibited at Gallery 63 and in Rome at their La Galleria 63 during 1963 and 1964. But in 1965 "Gallery 63 suddenly closed without warning" as he tells Sidney in this letter. So, as he also tells Sidney, it was in 1965 that he then went to Hammer Galleries, owned by Victor Hammer. Evergood must have been preparing at this time for what would be his first one-man show with Hammer Galleries which occurred in 1967. He didn't stay long there, however, as, according to details in "Philip Evergood: Never Separate from the Heart," by Kendall Taylor (page 20), in 1970 he left Hammer for Kennedy Galleries. Evergood reminds Sidney that since he was only interested in his work on an exhibition basis, he had to go elsewhere to "seek a permanent anchor," saying that he had "recently... joined the Hammer Galleries." He then speaks highly of owner Victor Hammer who "has great plans to how my work abroad." While in the 1930s, the Hammer Galleries were the first in the west to exhibit the Faberge eggs, by the 1960s they were focused on 19th and 20th century European and American Masters. In a side note, after the P.S., Evergood asks his correspondent if he has "seen the Kahns lately." This reference is most likely to Mr. & Mrs. Harry Kahn (1916-1999) who the Frick Collection "Archives Directory for the History of Collecting in America" lists as an art collector, an investment advisor and a philanthropist who served on the board of the Brooklyn Museum until 1997 and founder of its Contemporary Arts Council. An informative letter showing the working life of the artist, moving from gallery to gallery, preparing for exhibitions, and commenting on other artists. Signed "Phil Evergood" and again with initials in the P.S.

An exchange of views with you and other outstanding leaders of our country is I believe important and desirable..."" Also, a news clipping from the July 21st issue of the ""Herald Tribune"" beginning, ""President Johnson, moving swiftly in the wake of Barry Goldwater's nomination, has incited 200 business leaders to a quiet luncheon at the White House tomorrow for what he has termed a private 'exchange of views'.

Barry Goldwater had won the Republican presidential nomination on the first ballot. Also present is Harold H. Helm's retained carbon of his August 19, 1965, letter to President Johnson thanking him ""for the delightful dinner at the White House last evening [sic, August 17th]. You were a most gracious host and I am sure that all of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as well as the privilege of hearing the Viet Nam presentations and of listening to the other discussions ... As my table drawing made me a writer, I am following instructions and would like to outline the following suggestions briefly..."" Helm mentions ""commercial banks,"" ""monetary policy,"" and ""the overhanging steel-labor negotiations...""In conclusion, Mr. President may I say that we think its unfortunate that some small minority groups have expressed criticism of your conduct in the handling of the Viet Nam problem.

Among those present at the dinner were the Secretaries of the Treasury, State, Defense, Commerce, and Labor, Presidents of the United Auto Workers Walter P. Reuther and United Steelworkers of America I.W. Abel, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Arthur J. Goldberg, former U.S. Ambassador to Viet-Nam Maxwell Taylor, and numerous other union ad labor leaders. Here offered is President Johnson's August 23, 1965, reply to Helm, in full, ""I am pleased with the thoughtful letter you wrote me. The comments that you make so succinctly and with such clarity I have passed along to Secretary of the Treasury Fowler. I have asked the Secretary to give me his detailed comments on the points that you raised. I am grateful to you for the declaration of support that you give us in our actions in South Viet-Nam and indeed in all that we try to do to preserve freedom and defend justice. I'm sending you an autographed copy of a booklet just published [not present] which outlines the roots of our commitment in Viet-Nam and why we are there."" "
