        Heizwerk Nord" originales Gemälde, Öl auf Malplatte ca. 20,5x30,5cm; rechts unten monogrammiert; um 1965

      - Ludwig Bock begann seine künstlerische Ausbildung an der privaten Akademie bei Heinrich Knirr. Unter den Anweisungen von Bernhard Buttersack entwickelte er sich in Haimhausen bei München zum Landschaftsmaler. 1906 wurde er an die Münchener Akademie aufgenommen und wurde Meisterschüler bei Heinrich von Zügel. Seine erste Ausstellung fand 1908 im Rahmen der Sezession statt. Außerdem stellte er in den Jahren danach unter anderem in den über München hinaus bekannten Galerien Thannhauser, Brakl und Heinemann aus. 1908 und 1909 erhielt der die bronzene und silberne Medaille der Münchner Akademie. Eine Reise nach Paris im Jahre 1913, auf der er die französische Moderne, so etwa Werke von Matisse und Cézanne, studierte, beeinflußte ihn nachhaltig. In den Folgejahren löste er sich - wie so manch einer seiner bekannten Mitschüler - deutlich vom Stil seines Lehrers Zügel und entwickelte eine expressive, auf scharfe Konturen und leuchtende Farbigkeit basierende Malerei. 1917 wurde der Künstler Mitglied der Sezession. Seit 1918 folgten regelmäßige Ausstellungen im Münchner Glaspalast sowie in zahlreichen anderen deutschen Städten. Im Jahre 1920 wurde das erste Gemälde Bocks von den Bayerischen Staatsgemäldesammlungen angekauft, es sollten noch weitere folgen. Im Jahre 1927 erhielt er den Professorentitel. Von nun an schuf er fast ausschließlich Stilleben, die sich in seiner späteren Zeit an die Malweise von Carl Schuch anlehnten. 1929 erhielt er den Rom Preis der Villa Massimo. Nach Kriegsende war Bock an der Wiederbegründung der Münchner Sezession beteiligt und stellte dort regelmäßig mit aus. 1952 erhielt er den Kunstpreis der Stadt München.

        Tooneel der Vereenigde Nederlanden en onderhorige landschappen, geopent in een algemeen historisch, genealogisch, geographisch en staatkundig woordenboek. 2 delen in een band. Leeuwarden: H. Halma, 1725.

      Folio, half leer, (14)+470+(2)+408 p., ill. Goed exemplaar. Lit: Haitsma Mulier/Van der Lem 202b, Tiele 447, Maandblad Oud-Utrecht 38 (1965), p. 85-90, Bodel Nijenhuis 94."François Halma (1653-1722) was boekhandelaar en academiedrukker, eerst te Utrecht, later te Amsterdam en vanaf 1710 te Leeuwarden. Het 'Tooneel' is een soort encyclopedie op plaatsnamen en persoonsnamen. Bij zijn overlijden was Halma bijna gereed met de tekst. Brouërius van Nidek nam toen de letters W, Y en Z voor zijn rekening en voegde een levensbeschrijving van Halma toe. Het boek is geïllustreerd met 26 kaarten en 38 portretten en 2 platen. De kaarten zijn voor het merendeel hetzelfde als die in M. Altings 'Descriptio agri Batavi et Frisii'. De portretten betreffen voornamelijk de graven van Holland; de platen een afbeelding van het Huis te Britten en het standbeeld van Alva. Ook leverbaar een exemplaar in twee geheel leren banden uit de tijd, voor 1750 euro."

        In Cold Blood

      New York: Random House. Advance reading copy, first edition. Very Good. ADVANCE READING COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION of Capote's masterpiece. "One of the more distinguished achievements in reportage by any writer, In Cold Blood first appeared serially in the New Yorker, where it examined with extraordinary depth, precision, and drama the victims and their killers. So immense was the stress of the editorial undertaking, however, that Capote became addicted to tranquilizers and developed an emotional attachment to the criminals, whose deaths by hanging he witnessed at the Kansas state penitentiary. From more than four thousand pages of typewritten notes gathered with Harper Lee, Capote's celebrated 'non-fiction novel' won the Mystery Writers of America Edgar Allan Poe Award and exacted enough of a psychological toll upon its author to preclude much sustained work in the future" (American National Biography).

 New York: Random House, [1965]. Octavo, original first-state dust jacket as wrappers bound over burgundy paper, as issued. A slight bit of rubbing at extremities; one of the nicest copies we've seen of the fragile advance reading copy.

        [Original Poster VINYL and POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL World Premier at the Filmmakers' Cinematheque]

      (New York): Andy Warhol, (1965). First Edition. Offset lithographed B&W poster. 8.5" x 11". Archivally mounted in a black metal frame with wooden back brace. Near fine. Vintage poster for the world premiere of Andy Warhol's seminal films, VINYL and POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL at Jonas Mekas' Filmmakers' Cinematheque. Photo-illustrated with a repeating image of Edie Sedgwick and Gerard Malanga, "[t]he poster's typewrit- ten descriptions of these Warhol films as 'cinema verite,' 'pop art,' and his 'first nonstatic film' denote an attempt to place underground cinema in a more mainstream genre of film. Its childlike drawing of a butterfly is reminiscent of the butterflies Warhol drew in the 1950s when he worked as a commercial illustrator" (Maréchal p. 29). Variously cited as either Warhol's most or least "entertaining" film, VINYL is an experimental adaptation of Anthony Burgess' A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (for which Warhol legitimately paid $3000 for rights), adapted by regular Factory collaborator Ronald Tavel, and featuring songs by The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Isley Brothers, and others. Shot by Warhol and Malanga in Edie SedgwickÂ’s apartment, POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL was SedgwickÂ’s first speaking and starring role in a Warhol film. Conceived as a day-in-the-life of the Factory superstar and at least conceptually autobiographical, IMDB's description of the story seems to sum up its intentions best: "A young, jobless woman stays in bed, reads, talks on the phone, smokes cigarettes, makes fresh cof- fee, and tries on some clothes from a large wardrobe." [Maréchal 4].

        Casta Diva

      Paris: , 1965. Colour print on textured paper (700 × 485 mm). Near fine. Titled and signed by Zeffirelli in green ink in the lower margin, "Franco Zeffirelli—1965". Zeffirelli began his career in the theatre as Luchino Visconti's assistant, working on the 1955 La Scala Traviata, and subsequently becoming a close friend of Callas, first working with her as director in the Dallas 1958 production of the same opera. In 1964, he created what was to be Callas' last Norma at the Paris Opera, for which the present commemorative print was designed, it bears no imprint and was probably produced for Zeffirelli himself. The image records the mise en scène for what is widely considered to be Callas' signature aria, perhaps the perfect expression of her unique talent. Zeffirelli writes of the Paris production, when Callas' voice was far from at its best; "To those of us who appreciated what Callas stood for, difficulties with the highest notes were irrelevant. Her acting interpretation and general vocal creativity were at a peak. That night, her Norma was one of the finest moments of music theatre I have ever experienced; she could at will pick us up and dash us down emotionally … hers was a great interpretation of Norma, certainly the greatest ever in our time …" (Zeffirelli. The Autobiography of Franco Zeffirelli. pp.192-3). A wonderfully thoughtful evocation of a great artist in her greatest rôle.

        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]
