        Just a month after Selma, Dr. King sends thanks for a "contribution to the struggle for human rights ? It will help sustain staff that we have all over the state of Alabama working in voter registration and political education ? 'Filling The Crack In The Liberty Bell' is quite significant in this age of social change. Certainly, we all realize there are cracks and gaps to be filled in our whole system of justice and liberty?"

      n.p., April 23, 1965. 8.5" x 11". "Typed Letter Signed ""Martin,"" 1p, 8.5"" x 11"". No place, April 23, 1965. To Mrs. Esther Harris, Philadelphia. Noted at the conclusion: ""cc Mrs. Marian Bruce Logan."" On lightweight paper. Signed in blue ink, this was the copy sent to Mrs. Logan, but with a live signature. Fine condition.In full, ?My friend and SCLC Board Member, Marian Logan, told me of your organization?s plan to make a contribution to SCLC. I would like for her to receive the contribution for SCLC. Your contribution to the struggle for human rights is needed and deeply appreciated. It will help sustain staff that we have all over the state of Alabama working in voter registration and political education. It is through cooperation or [sic, of] organizations like the 'Smart Set' that we have even been able to continue in the Deep South. I think that the theme of the 'Smart Set Convention' bespeaks the desires of persons of goodwill all over the nation. 'Filling The Crack In The Liberty Bell' is quite significant in this age of social change. Certainly, we all realize that there are cracks and gaps to be filled in our whole system of justice and liberty. You have my very best wishes for a successful convention.? Smart Set was a national organization of upper class African-American women that supported causes relevant to their place - socially, politically, and otherwise - in America. The letter here offered was written just a month after Martin Luther King, Jr., led thousands of nonviolent demonstrators to the steps of the capitol in Montgomery, Alabama, after a 5-day, 54-mile march from Selma, Alabama, demanding equality in voting rights."

        The Painted Bird.

      Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston 1965 - First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed on the half title page, "with every best wish, cordially, Jerzy Kosinski Sept. 1975." Fine in a very good dust jacket with a few small chips to the spine. The Painted Bird established Jerzy Kosinski as a major literary figure. Kosinski's story follows a dark-haired, olive-skinned boy, abandoned by his parents during World War II, as he wanders alone from one village to another, sometimes hounded and tortured, only rarely sheltered and cared for. Through the juxtaposition of adolescence and the most brutal of adult experiences, Kosinski sums up a Bosch-like world of harrowing excess where senseless violence and untempered hatred are the norm. Through sparse prose and vivid imagery, Kosinski's novel is a story of mythic proportion, even more relevant to today's society than it was upon its original publication. "A powerful blow on the mind because it is so carefully kept within the margins of probability and fact" (Arthur Miller). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

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

      Santiago, : Zig-Zag, . Très bon état. Tres rare !! Signed and inscribed. Very rare !. Santiago, Zig-Zag, 1965. 8°. 247 pages. Édition originale, broché / Softcover. Très bon état. 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.

        State Funeral of Sir Winston Churchill; Ceremonial to be Observed at the Funeral; The Order of Service for the Funeral

      London: Her Majesty's Stationery Office. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine. SCARCE PRESS RELEASE for the State Funeral of Winston Churchill, WITH FINE COPIES of "The Order of Service" and the "Ceremonial to be Observed". Churchill died on 24 January, 1965. "The funeral was six days later, the coffin having lain in state in Westminster Hall for the preceding three days. It was the first time since Gladstone in 1898 that any non-royal personage had been so treated" (Roy Jenkins). It has been said with only slight exaggeration that the whole word paid tribute to Churchill on January 30, 1965, for representatives from over 100 countries came to pay their respects, forming the largest gathering of dignitaries ever in Britain. Only the funeral of Pope John Paul II in 2005 surpassed Churchill's funeral in the number of statesmen attending.

 The press release, with the strict note that it was "not for publication before 0001 hours Saturday, 30th January 1965" covers in minute detail every aspect of the funeral. The included charts illustrate the order of procession, the deployment in the New Palace Yard, and the arrival at St. Paul's. [London]: The Earl Marshal's Press Office, Ministry of Defence, 29 January, 1965. Eleven mimeographed 8x13 inch sheets (two page 10's) with three additional maps and diagrams on thicker stock. Stapled together in center. A remarkable survival- only very slight wear to edges and a few scattered spots. The "Ceremonial to be Observed", like the press release, outlines all the details of the service, while "The Order of Service" contains the readings and the prayers for the service. Both are elegantly printed on heavy paper stock by Her Majesty's Stationery Office and were designed to be distributed to attendees of the service. London: Her Majesty's Stationery Office, 1965. Decorated wrappers ("Ceremonial" is 10.5x7.25 in.; "The Order" is 7.25x5.25 in.). A few spots of soiling to rear wrapper of "The Order"; beautiful copies: extremely rare in such fine condition. All three items together in custom silk box.

Second edition following the self-published mimeographed first edition of 1949. Inscribed by Bliss using Blissymbolics with an English translation to Michael Rubinstein, the solicitor who successfully defended Penguin Books during their prosecution under the Obscene Publications Act (1959) for publishing the unexpurgated text of D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover.  : ‘[ ] to the man of Justice and Law / [ ] Michael Rubinstein / [ ] and to you dear / [ ] Joy / [ ] who is interested helping / [ ] needy children / [ ] my book and / [ ] guess what? / Yours / Charles Bliss / 14 Nov. 78’.  Charles Bliss (1897-1985) was born in Austria, and studied chemical engineering at Vienna University of Technology. After graduating he worked as a research chemist and later as chief of the patent department at an electronics company until the outbreak of war when he was sent to a Nazi concentration camp. Following his release in 1938 he moved to England until 1940, then to Shanghai where he was imprisoned as a prisoner-of-war, finally settling in Australia. It was whilst in Shanghai that he was exposed to the Chinese writing system which encouraged him to begin to devise ‘Semantography’ (or ‘Blissymbolics’), a universal symbol system that could be translated into any language, and which he hoped would help to bring about world peace and to promote greater understanding between nations and cultures. This copy is inscribed to Michael Rubinstein, a solicitor who joined the family firm of Rubinstein, Nash & Co in 1948 and remained there until he retired in 1994. He was ‘best known for representing the leading publishing houses of his era, including Chatto and Windus, Sidgwick and Jackson, Hodder and Stoughton, Jonathan Cape, Victor Gollancz, and Penguin, then independent companies yet to be swallowed up by publishing conglomerates.  His most notable triumph was his successful defence in 1960 of Penguin Books when the latter was prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act (1959) for publishing the unexpurgated text of D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover. This was the first prosecution of a novel under an ostensibly liberalizing act of parliament to amend the law of obscenity and to protect literature. While the prosecution floundered in a time warp of witnesses cheerfully asserting that they did not have to read the book to know it was obscene, and prosecuting counsel asking the jury whether they would want their maidservants or wives to read the book, Rubinstein concentrated on rallying the literary establishment to prove that its publication was justified in the public interest. Thirty-five witnesses testified to its merits. Rubinstein had the delicate task of finding a sexually unimpeachable female witness who could testify that she had read the book and remained uncorrupted. Penguin’s triumphant acquittal signified an end to such prosecutions of books where a defence of literary merit could be raised.  Within a year Rubinstein’s grateful clients, Penguin, had sold two million of Lawrence’s lesser works. The outcome gave particular satisfaction to Rubinstein since his father’s defence thirty yea [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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.
