        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'. It was also learned that he will have a similar luncheon chat with the nation's top labor leaders Friday [July 23]..."" On July 15, 1964, Arizona Sen. 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. We believe this to be relatively unimportant and can assure you that this feeling is by no means the prevailing one in the financial district..."" 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."" "

        Early notes for Alex Haley's final novel: Queen: The Story of An American Family, written while attending the inauguration of his brother George as Kansas' first black state senator

      Various, 1965. 5.25" x 7.75". "Autograph Manuscript Signed, ""ALEX HALEY,"" on the inside front cover of a 5.25"" x 7.75"" spiral notebook with 28 pages filled in, [Various places], c. 1965, entitled in his hand on the front cover, ""We Drove To Topeka."". Slight wear to covers, and some very slight toning to the margin of a few pages, else very fine condition.Only months before his first book, The Autobiography of Malcom X was to be published, Haley was already at work on what was to be his third major novel: an examination of one of his father's side of the family?"specifically the life of his grandmother Queen, the daughter of a black slave and her white master, James ""Jass"" Jackson. This work would be temporarily sidelined by his other major literary endeavor, which traced the roots of his mother's family back to West Africa, and published under the title Roots in 1976. During the 1980s, Haley continued the project, but died before he was able to complete the novel. David Stevens, who had worked with Haley on the research, wrote the final draft and published it in 1993 under the title: Queen: The Story of An American Family. The novel was adapted for television the same year in a miniseries entitled Alex Haley's Queen, starring Halle Barry and Danny Glover. Haley undertook his journey to Topeka with his father Simon Haley (1892-1973) and his first wife, Nannie Virginia Branch Haley (1926-2013), to attend the inauguration of his brother George (1925-2015) as a Kansas State Senator (the first African American to be elected to that office). Along the way, he enjoyed some quality time with his father, who provided information on his family's background, which became the basis for his final, but unfinished novel published posthumously in 1993.Haley's genealogical notes read, in part: ""From Dad night of 10-11 January 1965... HALEY owned plantation in Marion County, Alabama. Haleyville has grown up in plantation area. ('Cricket' grew up on old Jackson plantation, now Sheffield) Jim Bauch was owner Haley's overseer. Baugh sired ALEC HALEY by Viney (Haley) Dad: 'Whether it was true or not, some people in McNeil, Arkansas (farmers) ran into me. they claimed their father as brother of Alec Haley. These people Will Haley... treated me lavishly. Sent their girls to Arkansas... Helen and Hilda Haley. Allegedly their uncle was Alec Haley. Don't know Will Haley's father's name - who would have been Alec's Haley around magnolia, Ark.... Mama's death. She had terrible sinus. she had something like your grandfather, some kind of skin tuberculosis. Dad was aware of fatality illness in September, and she died in march. She had no idea. She came to Alabama was in hospital as soon as she came. Dr. Grote ('GROT-Y') 'Haley, no need of keeping her here, she wont make it.' Mama, determined to get with Dad, came to Alabama in March 1932... Died same month.""Of particular interest are mentions of his grandmother, who would become the protagonist of the novel: ""Queen has two other sisters Judy, Fannie and brother Charles. 'Not full' siblings, Very dark. What might have been light side in my grandfather ... Queen definitely half-white. 'I believe one-eighth Indian. Alec was at least a quarter Indian. High cheek bones. Straight dark hair. ?"Cherokee Indian. Cherokee Indian area ?" where they lived. Cherokee, Alabama, running across Tennessee into Alabama. "" He also notes that his grandfather who would marry Queen, was married previously as well: ""Alec Haley first was married to Tinney. three children. Minnie, Juila, Freeland. Alec never believed Freeland his son. He'd go all week, leave Negro man with Tinney."" Besides these early notes on his father's ancestors, of tremendous interest is Haley's description of the trip to Topeka to attend his brother's inauguration to the Kansas State Senate. His brother had already made history being only the second black person to attend University of Arkansas School of Law in the early 1950s and then again as an assistant to Thurgood Marshall working on the landmark civil rights case, Brown v. Topeka, Kansas Board of Education. By the time of his election to the Kansas Senate in 1964, he was already a prominent Kansas City attorney. Haley's narration of the events as he journeyed to Topeka to witness his brother's inauguration opens the drive to the state capital from Kansas City where Alex, Virginia and Simon had picked up George: ""We drove on Interstate Freeway 70 the 60 miles to Topeka. George at the wheel... doing 80. Dad opposite George. Identical color hair, one brim wide... Dad engaged in running commentary on road markers... Virginia, re Negroes our race ?" 'It would be a bore to be anything else.' ... at 11:07 George pointed 'There the capital' A pale green dome...""Stopping at the home of a family friend George received a phone call: ""'Senator - a young man called about a stenographer for you?"' Doris [George's Wife]?" 'If she's not under 40 and cross-eyed okay.'"" Arriving at the state capitol building around noon, Alex was taken aback by the activity, noting the push of television reporters and the large crowds as the inauguration ceremony began. Later in the afternoon, George and his wife attended a luncheon at the Governor's Mansion, ""Then at 3:30 due at a caucus 'If I've shook one hand, I've shook 500'"" remarked George. Alex, with his wife and father, sat in the gallery watching George proudly as the speaker read the roll: ""George seemed very at ease leaned back, hands clasped, legs crossed... In the room about 50 people?" Or my kid brother and 49 other people"" His brother's achievement impressed both black and white Kansans. During the inaugural ceremonies, Haley observed that the gallery was ""at least 1/4 Negro."" In a very poignant moment, Haley's brother recalled the kind remarks of ""An older Senator... said 'I want you to know I've always voted for Civil Rights."" George replied, ""'You can look at me and know I am interested in Civil Rights, but I want you to know that I am interested in my country in particular and my state in general, in all matters of legislation.'"" Following a single term in the Kansas State Senate, George Haley accepted an appointment by Richard Nixon as Chief Counsel for the Urban Mass Transpiration Administration in 1969. From 1973 to 1976 he worked for the United States Information Agency (USIA), and then became a partner in the firm of Obermayer, Rebmann, Maxwell and Hippel of Philadelphia and Washington. In 1990 he accepted an appointment from George H.W. Bush as Chairman of the Postal Rate Commission, and in 1998, President Clinton appointed him United States Ambassador to Gambia?"a post he held until 2001 (""George Haley,"" The History Makers, ). "

        In Cold Blood

      New York , RANDOM HOUSE, 1965 - A True Account of a Multiple Murder and its Consequences. 8vo. pp. 344. . Ottimo (Fine). . Prima edizione (First Edition, First Impression). . E' solo con questo romanzo, tradotto in italiano ''A sangue freddo'', che la narrativa di Capote si sviluppò nel senso di una più obiettiva e puntuale analisi dei fatti. L'opera, che ebbe un clamoroso successo commerciale e fu anche portata sullo schermo, si basava su un fatto di cronaca nera realmente avvenuto: la strage di una facoltosa famiglia del Kansas compiuta, apparentemente senza motivo, da due psicopatici più tardi processati e condannati alla pena capitale. Il libro, che fu definito da Capote stesso come appartenente al genere della ''nonfiction novel'' fu il risultato di 5 anni di attente ricerche sul crimine e sui suoi esecutori, fino a comprendere una precisa e documentata indagine sulle motivazioni sociali e psicologiche che portarono i due assassini al delitto. Rilegato tela, sovracoperta (cloth, dust jacket) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
