        FOUR EXTREMELY RARE DOCUMENTS CONCERNING THE BEATLES 1965 U.S. TOUR

      Unpublished. 1965. Four historic documents concerning The Beatles 1965 U.S. Tour, sent from Beatles press officer Tony Barrow to Atlanta DJ Paul Drew, who travelled with the Beatles during their 1964 and 1965 U.S. Tours. Drew accompanied The Beatles on their chartered plane, interviewing the group many times, and introducing them at their August 18, 1965 concert at Atlanta Stadium. Document one is a typed letter signed from Tony Barrow to Paul Drew on NEMS letterhead, dated July 20, 1965. Barrow writes "I refer to your application to travel with The Beatles while they are in America next month. I am pleased to say that a place has been reserved for you on the charter aircraft. I shall look forward to meeting you in New York. In the meantime, I enclose information which should assist you in making your arrangements. May I draw your special attention to paragraphs THREE and SIX. With good wishes. Yours sincerely, Tony Barrow." Document two is a fascinating three page hand annotated memo from Barrrow titled "The Beatles' Tour of America: August 1965" on News From NEMS letterhead. Dated August 5, 1965, this memo outlines logistics for those traveling with The Beatles, and a schedule of concerts and charter flights. It's extraordinary to see what those in the Beatles' touring party experienced. Particularly interesting is that "NO ADVANCE INFORMATION AS TO THE NAME OR LOCATION OF EACH HOTEL IS TO BE RELEASED FOR SECURITY REASONS. AFTER EACH CHARTER FLIGHT HAS LEFT THE GROUND, YOU WILL BE GIVEN THE NAME AND ADDRES OF EACH HOTEL IN THE TOWN OR CITY YOU ARE APPROACHING." Document three is a three page itinerary from Pickwick Travel Service titled "Travel Arrangements For The Beatles." This details the day to day travel plans, departure times, airport information and logistics for tour personnel, band instruments, limos, etc. Hotels for the support acts and cities where no flights were required are listed. The fourth and final document is a letter from Tony Barrow to Paul Drew, on NEMS letterhead and dated September 10, 1965 ten days after the tour's final date at San Francisco's Cow Palace. Barrow has enclosed a photograph [not present], and writes "May I take this opportunity of thanking you once again for helping make things go smoothly all the way through the tour - and, of course, for the unexpected and thoroughly useful gifts you piled upon me at the Cabana." Barrow asks Drew for copies of his radio programs about The Beatles, offers that he will be sending advance copies of forthcoming Beatles releases before they are released in the U.S., and offers to have the group make promo messages for Drew. He finishes by promoting the forthcoming single by NEMS/Brian Epstein client The Silkie, a version of The Beatles "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away." He mentions that John, Paul and George "helped with the production" (in fact Lennon produced the track and Paul and George played on it). An exceptional collection of documents, possibly the only surviving examples, which provide an extraordinary glimpse into life on the road with The Beatles during their most productive period. Paul Drew at the time these documents were issued was working at Radio WQXI in Atlanta, he went on to become one of the most successful and influential radio programmers in America. Drew maintained his relationship with The Beatles and interviewed them individually numerous times after the split. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request.

        Rot 24: Strukturen / Berechnungen

      Stuttgart: Hansjorg Mayer, 1965. First printing. (36) pp., square 16mo. Perfect-bound in printed wrappers. Sixty-seven illustrations, including tables and diagrams. Physicist Heinz von Foerster's copy, with his ownership stamp and annotations, two ms. pages in Foerster's hand, and an envelope of negatives. Some soiling and one small abrasion to back cover, and title written in ink on otherwise plain spine, otherwise very good; envelope, negatives, and ms. pages in fine condition. Issue number 24 of Mayer's long-running journal devoted to concrete poetry, experimental typography, and aesthetics; this issue devoted to the mathematics of rotated and tiled letters, creating rosettes, textures, and other patterns. Von Foerster was the youngest attendee of the Macy Conferences that gave birth to the field of cybernetics, and edited the resulting five volumes of transcripts; his many accomplishments across a very wide range of disciplines include advances in high-frequency electronics and in population modeling, as well as a pioneering text on computer music. In addition to several annotations to the text, he has added two manuscript pages, both featuring hand-drawn graphs and equations, exploring aspects of the mathematics of, in one case, the capital letter "R" (which is the building block of the first forty patterns in the book), and in the other, a particular shape of curve. (In the latter instance, he has cut one of the French-fold pages and tipped in the graph between the pages.) Also accompanying the volume is an envelope containing the ten original opaqued production negatives for the images in the first half of the text (the forty patterns created by rotating Rs); altogether an extraordinary document of research in process.

This book can be sent to most international destinations, but not all. Please contact seller for shipping information BEFORE purchasing this book if you want it delivered to an international address. From Harvey Rothenberg: Recollection by Harvey Rothenberg Administrative Assistant & Appointment Secretary My first contact with John Lindsay was in 1947, when we were both members of the N.Y. Young Republican Club. I kept in contact with John through the years, and was active in his subsequent Congressional campaign in the early 60?s. In 1965, when he decided to run for the Mayoralty, he recruited me to be ?Headquarters Administrator for the campaign at the Roosevelt Hotel." I accepted, and shared an office with John?s wife, Mary. Well, Lindsay won the election, and I left N.Y. with my family, to vacation in Tucson, Arizona. A few days later, I received a call from John, asking me to take on the position of Administrative ass?t, and Appointment Secty. I was still in my apparel business, and this was unexpected. I said to the new Mayor, ?I?ve never been an appointment secretary." His response was that he?d never been Mayor. That began my exciting adventure as the only full time $1 a year member of the Lindsay staff. I returned to N.Y. just as the subway strike began. The next morning, when I met the Mayor at Gracie Mansion, he told me that we would walk the 5 miles to City Hall.That was daunting enough, but to keep up with the long-legged Lindsay taxed me to the limit. When we got to City Hall, John, seeing my condition, invited me into his office. He first pointed out my office which was adjacent to his. Going into his office, we both sat on the sofa. Lindsay?s first remark as we sat down was, "Harvey, now that we?ve won it, what do we do with it?" Thus began an exciting adventure for me, as well as my family?it was a labor of love. Lindsay was a tireless and dedicated public servant, who tried to accomplish so very much in a most difficult period. I was most fortunate to be part of the effort. . Very Good.

        Portrait photograph of President Johnson, inscribed to Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg

      N.p. [Washington, D.C.], 1965. Color print, both inscription and signature beneath the image; with credit printed in the image at lower left. 10 x 8. Glazed and framed in tasteful black-and-gold wooden 16" x 19" frame. A few tiny nicks to frame, image fine. To Supreme Court Justice and UN Ambassador Arthur Goldberg The (undated) inscription reads: "To Arthur Goldberg-/ With the high regard and affection/ of his friend-/ Lyndon B. Johnson." Appointed by President Kennedy, Goldberg was an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1962 to 1965 and one of the most significant justices of the twentieth century. In his three terms on the bench he pushed the Court's toward a broader construction of personal rights, a course it followed over the following two decades. He is best known for his influential 1963 internal Supreme Court memorandum that condemned capital punishment as an example of "cruel and unusual punishment," as defined by the Eighth Amendment, and his opinion in Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), which argued against a Connecticut law banning the use of contraceptives because it violated an unumerated right to privacy guaranteed by the Ninth Amendment. The memo initiated a wave of litigation and legislation that led to the abolition of the death penalty in several states; the Griswold opinion laid the foundation for Roe v. Wade (1973), which established a women's right to have an abortion. When Adlai Stevenson, Ambassador to the United Nations, died in 1965 President Johnson decided to appoint Goldberg to fill his seat. Johnson's larger plan was to put Abe Fortas on the bench because he knew Fortas would defend his Great Society programs (and spy on the Court for him). Probably a recipient of the legendary Johnson "treatment," Goldberg was persuaded to resign while flying to Stevenson's funeral on Air Force One. This photograph may be a memento of that 1965 flight, or one of the tools Johnson used to persuade Goldberg.

        TIME

      New York: ?"C?" Press. 1965. First edition. One of 10 lettered copies. Hardbound by the publisher in yellow, black and red patterned cloth and containing an original tissue guarded Burroughs manuscript page and an original artwork by Brion Gysin. Signed by Burroughs and Gysin twice (Once on their manuscript and original artwork page and again on the title underneath the stamped limitation statement). Four printed artworks by Brion Gysin. A fine copy. The work is a simulation of Time magazine, which included four of Gysin's drawings slipped into the Time layout and is one of Burroughs' earliest examples to merge the collage technique of art with the cut up technique of literature. It is the fullest expression of Burroughs' experimentation with the newspaper and magazine format that is part parody, and part critique as well as an expression of a new format and form capable of expressing a greater truth than fiction or journalism separately. Time goes to the heart of Burroughs' distrust of the mass media manipulation of image and news. The publication serves as confirmation of Burroughs early experiments with the visual arts and expresses elements of surrealism; the collage and assemblage art of Rauschenberg or Wallace Berman and his circle, Pop Art, and Mail Art are also all present in Time. The copy is letter G of the 10 copies lettered A - J, all of which were hardbound and issued with an original manuscript page collage by Burroughs and an original artwork by Gysin. A stellar copy of this important work. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

        IN COLD BLOOD

      1965. CAPOTE, Truman. IN COLD BLOOD. A True Account Of A Multiple Murder And Its Consequences. NY: Random House, [1965]. 8vo., maroon cloth in dust jacket. First Trade Edition, top-edge stained, in the earliest dust jacket- with "1/66" on the front flap and with "Publishers Of The American College Dictionary And The Modern Library" at the bottom of the rear flap. With an interesting signed presentation from Capote on the half-title page: "For Peter Bell with all good wishes, Truman Capote." What makes this presentation interesting is that Peter Bell was one of the protagonists in Capote's earliest book "Summer Crossing." Capote began writing the novel in 1944, when he was 19 years old. A draft of the novel was later discovered in a basement apartment in Brooklyn after Capote left it behind. It was not dicovered or published until about 2004. Peter Bell is a sexually ambiguous, preppy friend of the main protagonist in the novel. Was there a "real" Peter Bell? A little more research on this book wouldn't hurt! Near fine (bright); very minor wear (few very tiny nicks & tears base of spine) d/j. $2500.00.

        Twee handgeschreven brieven aan de redactie van het tijdschrift Dialoog. Tijdschrift voor homofilie en maatschappij.

      - 1. 27,4 x 21,4 cm. Eén blad. Alleen recto. Gesigneerd 'GerardKvanhetReve' en gedateerd 'Greonterp Post Oudega Wijmbritseradeel Friesland/ 5 maart 1965'. 12 regels tekst. 2. 27,4 x 21,4 cm. Eén blad. Alleen recto. Gesigneerd 'GerardKvanhetReve' en gedateerd 'Greonterp, Post Oudega Wijmbritseradeel (Fr.)'/ 12 Juli 1965. 10 regels tekst. Met een originele door Reve geschreven envelop aan Dialoog: 'spoed'. Poststempel '7 VII 65'.* In de eerste brief, gericht aan redactiesecretaris Niek Engelschman, vraagt Reve om de binnengekomen reacties op 'Brief Bank', 'om eventueel te repliceren'. Hij vervolgt met een tirade tegen de schrijver Jef Last: 'stoot toch alsjeblieft Jef Last af. De man heeft voor niets belangstelling dan Jef Last, en is een etiekloze warhoofd. Je hebt niks dan herrie, eindeloze gewichtige gesprekken, etc., met als resultaat dat hij zich voor een of ander fiktief plan naar Kopenhagen laat sturen, waarna je binnen drie dagen tijds een telegram krijgt dat hij van alles beroofd is, & of je geld wilt sturen, etc.' Ten slotte: 'Met homiofiele groet'!'De genade & Liefde van onze enige heer Jezus Christus zij met u', aldus opent de tweede brief. Middels dit schrijven wil Reve een correctie doorgeven in 'Heb ik God gelasterd?': 'pagina 2, regel 4, staat ter tijd; moet zijn: ten tijde. Want als men staande naamvalsverbuigingen bezigt, moet men ze korrekt toepassen, & tijd is mannelijk'. Hij zou graag een drukproef ontvangen: 'U hebt hem binnen 24 à 36 uur na verzending weer retour'.Gerard Reve zat de eerste twee jaargangen in de redactie van Dialoog. Aan het eerste nummer van de eerste jaargang droeg hij bij met 'Brief aan mijn bank', dat enkele felle reacties uitlokte bij paters en predikanten en mede aanleiding zou zijn tot het ezelsproces. 'Heb ik God gelasterd?' verscheen als reactie hierop in aflevering 4.

        Some/Thing 1-5

      Hawk's Well Press, New York 1965 - Five numbers in four volumes: 64, 68, (80), 118 pp., small 8vo. First three volumes sewn in signatures, last volume (double number 4-5) perfect-bound, all glued into illustrated wrappers. Covers by Amy Mendelson, Robert Morris, Andy Warhol, and George Maciunas. Numbers 2, 3, and 4-5 are signed by both Antin and Rothenberg. All in about very good condition, mostly unopened, with minor flaws: no. 1, covers rubbed and lightly scraped, and with a small tear at bottom of spine, otherwise a bright, tight copy; no. 2, light rubbing, creasing, and soiling to covers; no. 3, light staining, creasing, and abrasions to covers; no. 4-5, light rubbing and creasing to covers, otherwise about fine. A complete run of this legendary downtown New York magazine, which brought together poets and visual artists in powerful ways; a foretaste (and forecast) of the influential careers of the editors. This set includes the rare first version of the notorious "Bomb Hanoi" cover for no. 3, rejected by Warhol due to both the quality of the type and the fact that the printer executed by simple dashed lines a design that was meant to be a tipped-on page of gummed and perforated stamps (as it in fact was in the corrected second printing). In addition, laid into no. 1 at David Antin's contribution ("definitions for mendy") is a handwritten note, signed, from Antin to Jasper Johns, c. 60 words, beginning "This is the magazine I told you I was going to put out when we met at Nicco Calas'. It contains the long poem that was inflicted on you (among other things) . . ." It doesn't get much better. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
