        The End of the Game

      New York: Viking (1965) - First Edition. Quarto. A fine presentation copy, lengthily INSCRIBED by Beard to former Minneapolis Institute of Arts photography curator Christian Petersen. The inscription includes a two-page hand drawing in ball point pen, a small foot print in black ink, and an interesting history of the book's publication, as follows: "Special Delivery / from C.J. Bucher in / Lucerne 1962-1963 / another uphill battle vs Helen K. Taylor / and Bryan Holme [Viking Press retards while / I was still @ school trying to do this book / .(. subsequently delayed three years)." A scrapbook of African images, text, and other musings, culled from Beard's work in Kenya in the early 1960s, and published when the photographer was only 25 years old. Sadly, much of what Beard feared and forecast has come true, adding an uncanny prescience to his apocalyptic title. (Roth 170-171, Open Book 208-209, Auer 448). A few ink smudges to the boards, tiny bump at the spine head, else near fine in a near fine jacket. Meaningful copies of the true first edition of Beard's first and most important book are uncommon.

        I travestiti. Con una nota di Elvio Fachinelli. A cura di Sergio Donnabella

      In - 4 (cm 24x32), pp. 164. Testi e fotografie in bianco e nero di Lisetta Carmi. Leg. edit. cartonata illustrata. Inserto di 16 pagine di carta rosa sottile con riproduzione di foto e lettere dattiloscritte che i protagonisti del libro inviarono alla fotografa. Testi in italiano e inglese tradotti da Pietro Ferrari. Grande forza alle foto è data dall'impaginazione realizzata da Giancarlo Liprandi, uno tra i migliori rappresentanti del design grafico del secondo novecento e il cui contributo non può essere considerato secondario per la realizzazione di questo meraviglioso volume. "Tutto ciò che è maschile può essere anche femminile, e viceversa. Non esistono comportamenti obbligati, se non in una tradizione autoritaria che ci viene imposta sin dall'infanzia". Così scriveva Lisetta Carmi negli anni Settanta, nell'introduzione. La fotografa genovese, pioniera del fotoreportage d'impegno civile italiano, realizzò non solo una delle prime indagini sociali sul fenomeno del travestitismo in Italia, ma un racconto profondamente coinvolgente di una minoranza al margine. "Li ho conosciuti a una festa di Capodanno a Genova nel 1965, loro vivevano nel ghetto degli ebrei, tra Via del Campo e piazza Fossatella. In sei anni di vita insieme li ho sempre protetti, stimati, ho vissuto la loro sofferenza, l'emarginazione, le violenze, gli arresti. Ma grazie a loro, ho capito me e ho riscoperto la gioia di essere donna in un periodo in cui mi ribellavo al ruolo che la società ci aveva assegnato". Le straordinarie fotografie ci restituiscono i protagonisti in una dimensione privata, mentre sorridono alla macchina fotografica esibendosi senza finzioni in reggiseno e cotonature altissime, mentre si truccano, si allacciano il reggicalze, cucinano. Il libro faticò a trovare un editore e attirò la condanna della chiesa. Dopo qualche anno alcune copie furono distribuite con una sopracoperta a celare la foto di copertina."I Travestiti svolgono un servizio sociale? Sono l'espressione enfatizzata ed esasperata di un modo ormai superato (o in via di superamento) di considerare la donna come un bene di consumo? Sono l'avanguardia paradossale e contraddittoria di un modo nuovo di concepire (o di abolire) i ruoli assegnati all'uomo e alla donna? O sono tutte queste cose insieme?Io sono entrata nell'ambiente dei travestiti per caso nel 1965 durante una festa di capodanno: li ho rivisti successivamente nella loro vita quotidiana e ho cominciato a vivere con loro e a fotografarli. Li ho subito sentiti come esseri umani che vivono e soffrono tutte le contraddizioni della nostra società come minoranza ricercata da una parte e respinta dall'altra. Non è un caso però se il mio interesse e la mia partecipazione ai loro problemi ha creato fra me e loro una fiducia, un affetto e una comprensione che mi hanno permesso di fare questo lavoro con un rapporto che andava al di là di un normale rapporto fra fotografo e fotografati. Io stessa in quel tempo ero assillata - forse a livello inconscio - da problemi di identificazione maschile o femminile. Oggi capisco che non si trattava tanto di accettazione di uno "stato" quanto di rifiuto di un "ruolo".E i travestiti (o meglio il mio rapporto coi travestiti) mi hanno aiutato ad accettarmi per quello che sono: una persona che vive senza ruolo. Osservare i travestiti mi ha fatto capire che tutto ciò che è maschile può essere anche femminile, e viceversa. Non esistono comportamenti obbligati, se non in una tradizione autoritaria che ci viene imposta fin dall'infanzia. Ma chi sono i travestiti? Perché - al di là di un mezzo per vivere - cercano così disperatamente la condizione femminile? Che cosa significa per loro il mito della donna? E che cosa è "la donna"? intendo non solo per loro ma anche per i clienti. Tutte domande a cui è difficile dare una risposta, ma che sono vive e presenti nel nostro tempo e che mettono oggi in crisi il rapporto uomo - donna. I travestiti si mascherano, è vero; ma lo fanno per necessità. Hanno però il coraggio di fare quello che fanno e di affrontare una realtà spesso drammatica e violenta. Per molti di loro non esiste una alternativa di lavoro: come uomini hanno un aspetto troppo femminile,come donne hanno l'impedimento dello stato anagrafico maschile. Sopportano stati di solitudine incredibile proprio perché da una parte la società li ricerca e dall'altra li isola, li obbliga praticamente a vivere in ghetti (a Genova il loro quartiere è proprio l'antico ghetto degli ebrei), ha paura di riconoscersi in loro. Li usa, li paga, li giudica: ignorando volutamente che sono esseri umani. Ma io credo che il giudizio che noi diamo degli altri è quasi sempre un giudizio che noi diamo di noi stessi; ciò che negli altri ci spaventa è in noi; e difendiamo noi stessi sempre offendendo quella parte di noi che rifiutiamo. Mi diceva un travestito, riferendosi alla sua vita privata e non certo al suo lavoro: "Quando io ho un rapporto d'amore, non mi importa se è con un uomo o con una donna: è un essere umano che in quel momento mi dà se stesso e al quale io do me stesso". Una difesa dell'omosessualità? No. Forse è invece un'apertura verso rapporti umani più veri e più liberi e il rifiuto di rapporti standardizzati e violenti. E non è un caso che proprio lo stesso travestito, che anni fa appariva come una bellissima donna, oggi ha ritrovato la sua parte maschile, attende con gioia un figlio dalla donna che ama, e non fa più il travestito. La sua è stata un'avventura umana, un ritrovarsi da solo con le sue sole forze, in una società che per difendere dei principi non è più capace di vedere gli uomini" (Lisetta Carmi) [http: / / www.queerway.it / dblog / articolo.asp?articolo=830] "Via del Campo c'è una graziosa / gli occhi grandi color di foglia / tutta notte sta sulla soglia / vende a tutti la stessa rosa". Così, nel 1967, cantava Fabrizio De Andrè in "Via del Campo", rendendo famose in tutta Italia le "graziose" di Genova, quelle che a Napoli chiamavano "femminielli" e altrove "travestiti". Ma l'Italia scoprì le "graziose" non solo grazie alla voce di De Andrè, ma anche al libro "I travestiti" di Lisetta Carmi, un'artista sempre interessata al sociale che ha seguito con la sua macchina fotografica i "travestiti" genovesi dal 1965 al 1971, stringendo amicizie durate anni. Sono immagini di un bianco e nero lontano, provenienti da un mondo scomparso, remoto. Ma i "travestiti" resistono, orfani di quell'antica magia, gemme di una luce futura. Amati spesso da uomini tradizionalisti con intuizioni rivoluzionarie" [http: / / noirpink.blogspot.com / ... / arte - travestiti - resistenti - e...]

        Autograph Letter Signed by American Author and Nobel Prize winner JOHN STEINBECK, about Dogs (Bulldog Terriers) and Cars (the Land Rover)

      1965 - STEINBECK, JOHN. (1902-1968). American author of The Grapes of Wrath; winner of the 1962 Nobel Prize for Literature. ALS. ("John"). 3pp. Folio. Sag Harbor, May 6, 1965. To pioneering advertising executive HOWARD GOSSAGE (1917-1969). (Abridged) - "Telephone conversations are for me, essentially no good. Perhaps I don't listen when I can't see who I am talking to. And even more than usual, I think of what I wanted to say, when it is over. Let's get back to names and their connotations. Rover 2000, as I said and you said doesn't mean a thing. A name should have either a visual effect or an emotional one. And because of its construction, conformation, speed and dependability, its suspension, and cornering ability, even its "down face," the name for the 2000 is obvious. Association with Angel suggests the name. Why not call it British Bull Terrier. Let me go into the reasons. The breed is English Bull Terrier but British is more sturdy. These dogs are different from others in nature, ability and looks. Unlike the setters, spaniels and pointers which came originally from Spain, the bull terrier was built in England and given its present shape about 1846. It is built like a Sherman Tank (read Centurion) and has the speed and quickness of a Spanish bull. It is a kind, comfortable and friendly animal, gentle and loving but when pushed it is a volcano of controlled, fearless and efficient fury. -- When I told you over the phone that I thought I was over extended, I meant it. Your suggestion that I be paid for comment or suggestion is not any good either for the following reasons. 1. It would be literary and 2. income. That's 10% agents and 65-70% federal and state income tax. I would have to make 3 times the price of a car to pay off everybody. Gift tax would be much less. A lease might work, but outright purchase is out of the question. In addition, I don't really need another car. It would be self indulgence which I love when I can afford it. -- Now, about the 3 litre. You say it is called the poor man's Rolls. But no one wants to be thought of as a poor man. The Rover Rolls is a short declarative sentence. And R.R. might come to agreement. If not, then litigation could be made the best possible publicity. I'm giving this far too much time when I should be working on my second draft, which I propose to get back to right now. Let me hear what you think of this." Gossage was a groundbreaking advertising executive who co-founded the agency that counted among its clients Land Rover, the Sierra Club, Qantas Airways, and Petrofina Oil Co. The agency's home was in a former firehouse; becoming a hub of intellectualism whose visitors included Buckminster Fuller and authors Tom Wolfe and Steinbeck. Our letter makes plain Steinbeck's infatuation with a Land Rover about which Gossage had asked for his opinion. Steinbeck was ever drawn to men who knew machines, like [The Grapes of Wrath character] Al Joad, who is 'one with his engine' and keeps the 'ancient overloaded Hudson' running; or Gay, 'the little mechanic of god, the St. Francis of all things that turn and twist and explode,' who repairs the Model T in Cannery Row. His deep interest in finding the appropriate automobile for his specific use culminated with the author and his poodle Charley's 1960 cross-country tour, charmingly chronicled in his final book, Travels with Charley. For the road trip he put a customized camper shell on his truck and dubbed it Rocinante (after Don Quixote's horse). The camper is on view at the John Steinbeck Center in Salinas, California. Our letter also highlights Steinbeck's love of dogs, as he suggests that the Rover 2000 model its hood ornament on his English bull terrier Angel. With the original envelope and accompanied by four Polaroid photographs (two annotated by Steinbeck on the verso) depicting Steinbeck's dog Angel and a Rover with a prototype head ornament. * All our items are sent via FedEx.

        MODELES DES CARACTERES DE L'IMPRIMERIE ET DES AUTRES CHOSES NECESSAIRES AUDIT ART. NOUVELLEMENT GRAVES. With an Introduction to Pierre Simon Fournier's MODELES ... by James Mosely

      London: Eugrammia Press, 1965. cloth, paper wrappers, both volumes enclosed in a slipcase. Fournier, Pierre Simon. oblong 4to. cloth, paper wrappers, both volumes enclosed in a slipcase. Facsimile of the 1742 manual accompanied by the 20 page introduction. 2 volumes. Printed in an edition limited to 600 copies. Reproduced from the copy in the Printing Library of the St. Bride Institute. Thirty-three plates depict samples of the types cut by Fournier c. 1742 and which then appeared in his Manuel Typographique. A consummate artist and craftsman, Fournier (1712 - 1768) was one of the 18th century's finest engravers and typefounders, and his type, with its light, clean look on the printed page and great economy in text, greatly influenced Giambattista Bodoni (1740 - 1813), who later in the century popularized the more severe "modern" look. Introduction by Mosley, renowned typography professor and then librarian at the St. Bride Printing Library. Printed in collotype by Louis van Leer & Co. of Amsterdam on rag cream paper. Loosely inserted in this copy is the 12 page publisher's catalogue describing this book and others they published.

        For a Renewal of Eremitism in the Monastic State

      [Kentucky]: Abbey of Gethsemani. 1965. Approximately 40-page photocopied typescript essay arguing the values of eremitism (the state of being a hermit). Not directly attributed to Merton here, but with the Christogram "jhs" in the upper left corner of the first page as Merton tended to do, and collected in Collectanea Cisterciencia in 1965 [Dell'Isola C246] and later in Contemplation in a World of Action in 1971 [Dell'Isola A59]. Dated February, 1965, and thus the earliest appearance of this essay we can find. OCLC doesn't seem to list any standalone copies of it; the Thomas Merton Center lists several versions but none with exactly the same pagination and none with an explicit month identified in 1965. Mildly foxed; comb-bound in gold cardstock covers; near fine. First Edition. Softcover.

        The Four Seasons An Impression of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter: a Landscape Panorama

      London: Gogmagog Press, (1965-66). Four small octavo volumes, each with (26)pp. One of 100 copies printed on Hosho paper, each volume signed by Morris Cox, the artist/printer. Each volume contains a colorful panorama of nature printed from heavily textured blocks, which give the offset prints an embossed effect. The changing seasons appear in a flowing image with delicate natural forms and subtle hues. Colin Franklin says that the group is "reckoned as the peak of his achievement as a printer." The unusual texture of the prints derives from the unusual printing blocks used to create them. Cox mounted sheets of cardboard onto plywood and layered them with gesso, next adding materials from nature like seeds, leaves, and twigs. These natural elements were then varnished for strength. Printing these unconventional blocks required an inventive approach. According to David Chambers, "these were printed by using the office copying press and then screwing this down several times as the blocks were drawn through on a long carriage." Slight spine slant on Autumn, light, uniform toning, else a fine set in monotype-printed pictorial boards and original acetate wrappers.
