        Eleven Poems

      Belfast: Festival Publications,, [1965]. Octavo. Single quire, wire stitched, green outer wrapper printed in black. Fine copy. First edition, third issue. This is Heaney's first published work, with the printed notice with regard to his "First book of poems, "Death of a Naturalist", due from Faber, Spring 1966". The very first poem, "Personal Helicon (For Michael Longley)" (whose work appeared in the same Festival Publications series) in its opening and closing lines ("As a child, they could not keep me from wells / and old pumps with buckets and windlasses. / I loved the dark drop, the trapped sky" and "I rhyme / to see myself, to set the darkness echoing") prefigures the Nobel Prize acceptance speech that Heaney would make 30 years later, "I credit [poetry] ultimately because [it] can make an order as true to the impact of external reality and as sensitive to the inner laws of the poet's being as the ripples that rippled in and rippled out across the water in that scullery bucket fifty years ago. An order where we can at last grow up to that which we stored up as we grew. An order which satisfies all that is appetitive in the intelligence and prehensile in the affections. I credit poetry, in other words, both for being itself and for being a help, for making possible a fluid and restorative relationship between the mind's centre and its circumference." There are three "issues" of this pamphlet - correctly speaking three impressions. The first has the device in a light pink/purple on white, the second same as the first save for the device being of darker hue and the third is on much thicker blue-toned stock and in decent green card wrappers. The first and second issues may well be from the same setting, printing even but the third is palpably a separate impression. Nonetheless this is the classic "slim volume of poems" which was to herald a mighty voice.

        One magazine; the homosexual viewpoint; volume thirteen, number 1 - 12, January - December 1965 (complete run)

      Los Angeles: One, Inc., 1965. Magazine. Twelve issue complete run, about 32p. each including covers, 5.5x8.5 inches, very good digest size magazines in stapled pictorial wraps. Several issues contain stories by Joseph Hansen and under his nom de plume James Colton. The 13th year of the homophile magazine. One, Inc., which took its name from Thomas Carlyle's statement that "A mystic bond of brotherhood makes all men one," was founded in LA in 1952 as a homophile organization with connections to the Mattachine Society. As the first pro-gay journal of its kind, it serves as an important source for pre-Stonewall homophile studies. In 1954 the US Post Office declared it obscene, leading to a four-year legal battle (chronicled in its pages) that concluded with a favorable decision as part of Roth vs. United States. Aside from its articles covering topics ranging from the Beatniks and Gay marriage to homosexuality and national security, One Magazine also featured poetry and short fiction by numerous prominent authors.

        Autgraph Letter, Signed

      Deya, Mallorca, Spain, 1965. Four pages, in ink, on four leaves of airmail flimsy letterhead. 1 vols. Folded for mailing, otherwise about fine. Half morocco slipcase. Four pages, in ink, on four leaves of airmail flimsy letterhead. 1 vols. Marked "Confidential," to "Dear Mr. [Edwin] Sy," then special collections curator at Lockwood Memorial Library: "Enclosed a number of photographs. The 'Robert Graves Day' rather embarrasses me because I have always tried to remain a private character, but, having a large family to support, I have been forced to make public appearances in U.S. & England. And the recent deaths of the four best known poets writing in English - Frost, Cummings, Eliot [,] Edith Sitwell -- has as it were sucked me upwards by the vacuum they created." He continues further in detail about his need to raise funds by way of another sale of his manuscripts, and his feelings of obligation to Lockwood. He has assembled "a collection of prose manuscripts to be sold by my friend Lawrence Wallrich ... Various buyers, from the coasts mainly, would have paid the money if the collection had included verse. But all the verse (which is the most important of course) has always gone to you ... Now since April 23 1964 I have written the nearest to poetry that I can claim to have come; and nothing else but an occasional article or lecture. The wad of poem drafts is about three inches thick. Wallrich suggests that I 'sweeten' the prose collection by including these; but I tell him that I should satisfy my moral debt by asking your permission ... What I should most like of course would be for you to buy the whole lot ...." He continues further about the possibilities of making such a sale come about ("There would be no hurry about payment so long as I have a contract to show my bank, to borrow on"), forthcoming publications, other possible sources of revenue ("...my Solomon and Sheba musical which Alex Cohen has signed a contract for and wishes to produce on Broadway"), etc. He concludes: "At 70 I feel in a way that I am just beginning. Whatever your reaction to this letter, I shall send you a contribution to the display -- the Army pack with my name and rank still on it, which I wore in World War I." Signed in full, "with best wishes to you all." Accompanied by an 8 x 10 press photograph of Graves, captioned on the verso by Sy, and a newspaper clipping about the exhibition marking Graves's "79th [sic] Birthday," corrected in ms. to '70'.

        Collection of Letters, Photographs, and Poetry from 18-Year-Old Marc Bolan

      1965. An archive of items from the earliest part of the career of legendary British rock star Marc Bolan of T-Rex fame when he was only 18 and about to release his debut single on Decca Records in 1965. Included are two copies of the typed lyrics for his first single, "The Wizard"; two Autograph Notes Signed; five pages of typed poems stapled into a booklet; six 8" x 10" photographs taken by Fiona Adam, two of which show Bolan during his first recording session with producer Jim Economides; and a program for a Tyrannosaurus Rex tour two years later. All fine except for a small tear on the last page of the stapled poetry, a tack hole in one photo, and a couple annotations in red ink in the tour book.The collection comes from the archive of London Sunday Times music critic Derek Jewell, who while writing an article about Economides, was made aware of a young musician he was working with. A publicity letter dated 10 September 1965 sent to Jewell mentions Bolan and explains, "You will be hearing more from me concerning this boy, whom I feel has an appeal beyond the normal pop market." Quite an understatement.The first ANS is written on a white sheet that reads in full: "Derek thought you might like to see some poems. hope you like them. see you soon, sincerely Marc Bolan. P.S. words to the wizard on green paper. thanks." The second ANS is on a blue sheet: "Derek hope you like the pictures. first two are of the recording session. see you soon [arrow pointing down] Marc Bolan." Both signatures use the umlaut over the "o" in his last name, which was a new pseudonym created just a month before (and that some speculate is a contraction of the words "Bob Dylan"). As stated, the letters are accompanied by two green sheets with the typed lyrics to "The Wizard" (here titled "The Wizard in the Wood"), along with a stapled packet of five sheets of poetry titled The Wizard, The Owl and The Big Black Cat. Both the lyrics and poems have been trimmed to the same size, likely by Bolan, who has signed both in type: "Marc Bolan. '65."Two of the six photographs show Bolan in the recording session, one up close with him concentrating on something out of sight, and the other in discussion with producers and engineers. The remaining images include two of Bolan sitting on a leopard rug by a miniature roulette wheel and holding a black cat, along with two outside shots of him dressed in a black pea coat. Bolan looks surprisingly young in each with uncharacteristically short hair. Accompanying the letters and photographs is a press release for Bolan's first single with his name spelled "Mark Bowland" and corrected in black marker; a program for the Tyrannosaurus Rex tour "The Lion and the Unicorn" in the Oak Forests of Faun in 1969; as well as a file of press releases about Economides, along with the typescript of a profile of Bolan written by Jewell.An amazing archive capturing Marc Bolan at the start of his career as a solo performer, shortly before the creation of T-Rex made him a legend. .

Light wear and toning to the extremities, creasing along the lower front wrapper, with light foxing to top edge of text and beginning oxidation to staples; Very Good+. Scarce second issue of this short-lived poetry magazine published by Wayne Philpot's Border Press, containing the first appearance of Bukowski's poem 'I Keep Wanting To Cry About Everything But I Can't Get Started.' Additionally, he contributed the cover illustration entitled 'Sunday Afternoon in Heaven.' Philpot was quite taken with the quality of Bukowski's drawings, and in addition to using one to grace the first two covers of Border, he asked for several more with the intention of producing a limited edition book featuring his artwork. The projected title was 'Atomic Scribblings from a Maniac Age,' and while it was promoted and advertised, Philpot ultimately vanished with the drawings without a word. Quite uncommon in the trade, with OCLC locating 2 holdings for this issue (UC Santa Barbara & Kent State). Dorbin C267.

        Original Concept Art by Remmington

      Ballentine Books 1965 - Not since we supplied most of the important pieces to a Tolkien museum in Switzerland has such a key piece come on the market. The importance of this now iconic artwork to Tolkien’s huge popularity should not be underestimated. It was the cult status Tolkien first achieved in America on sale of millions of paperback and not in his own Britain,that would make him a household name. The Hobbit for example was not produced in the UK until 1961, 24 years after the first publication. Until 1966 his books only sold a few thousand copies a year, hardly a best seller. In fact the Tolkien society fan club first started in America, some five years before the UK version. Keep reading if you want to know more. We are pleased to offer for sale, perhaps the most important original Tolkien related art piece. It is truly deserving as a museum piece representing a key turning point in the history of Professor Tolkien popularity. While Tolkien’s own art was used in the Hobbits, none of his was used in the first lotR except the dust jackets. This is the original concept art submitted to Mrs Betty Ballantine for the 1965 Ballantine Books first paperbacks of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books in America. It was also used for the promotional posters and banners for what was to become very popular editions. It was produced by artist Barbara Remington as a concept proof before the final colour versions were produced. The medium is gouache on card, glued on illustration board with the original Ballantine stock sticker on the reverse, art piece 11 x 11 inches in size plus frame and matt width. It comes with a personal COA letter from Betty Ballantine. It also comes with two custom made frames, one for the art and one for the letter. Art frame has plexiglass panel on the reverse so you can see the Ballantine stock sticker. It also includes a poster- Come to Middle-earth which is the same artwork in colour as well as used on the cover of Fellowship of the Ring. This iconic illustration also has a slightly infamous reputation as Tolkien did not like it initially, but this does not alter its importance to Tolkien lore as we know it today. The History In 1965 Ace Paperbacks in America released unauthorised editions of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, the first time in paperback. This was due to a loophole in US copyright. The rush was then on for Houghton Mifflin, Tolkien’s US publisher in collaboration with Ballantine books to release authorised paperbacks of both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. To close he copyright loophole, a new version of the LotR text was needed, in which Professor Tolkien set out to make changes in 1965. As was often the case, these revisions were quite delayed, forcing Ballantine Books to rush out a new edition of the Hobbit and using Barbara Remington artwork before she had actually read the books. Thus some of the strange figures in the artwork are not in the book. There was even a lion on the cover of the Hobbit PB until it was airbrushed out. During an interview with N Marion Hage and Andwerve, Barbarasaid- "I worked for Ballantine, and as a practice, always read the books before doing the artwork. I didn’t have this luxury with the Tolkien Books, something I wish I could have changed. Ballantine was in a hurry to get these books out right away. When they commissioned me to do the artwork, I didn’t have the chance to see either book, though I tried to get a copy through my friends. So I didn’t know what they were about. I tried finding people that had read them, but the books were not readily available in the states, and so I had sketchy information at best." (As noted above, Barbara did make sketches relative to the books, afterwards, but she couldn’t get the publishers to see the point, something which is very regretful). Professor Tolkien was not impressed with the new Hobbit book cover. In a letter to Rayner Unwin, 12 September 1965, Tolkien wrote: ‘I wrote expressing(with moderation) my dislike of the cover for [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Collection of Letters, Photographs, and Poetry from 18-Year-Old Marc Bolan

      1965. An archive of items from the earliest part of the career of legendary British rock star Marc Bolan of T-Rex fame when he was only 18 and about to release his debut single on Decca Records in 1965. Included are two copies of the typed lyrics for his first single, "The Wizard"; two Autograph Notes Signed; five pages of typed poems stapled into a booklet; six 8" x 10" photographs taken by Fiona Adam, two of which show Bolan during his first recording session with producer Jim Economides; and a program for a Tyrannosaurus Rex tour two years later. All fine except for a small tear on the last page of the stapled poetry, a tack hole in one photo, and a couple annotations in red ink in the tour book.The collection comes from the archive of London Sunday Times music critic Derek Jewell, who while writing an article about Economides, was made aware of a young musician he was working with. A publicity letter dated 10 September 1965 sent to Jewell mentions Bolan and explains, "You will be hearing more from me concerning this boy, whom I feel has an appeal beyond the normal pop market." Quite an understatement.The first ANS is written on a white sheet that reads in full: "Derek thought you might like to see some poems. hope you like them. see you soon, sincerely Marc Bolan. P.S. words to the wizard on green paper. thanks." The second ANS is on a blue sheet: "Derek hope you like the pictures. first two are of the recording session. see you soon [arrow pointing down] Marc Bolan." Both signatures use the umlaut over the "o" in his last name, which was a new pseudonym created just a month before (and that some speculate is a contraction of the words "Bob Dylan"). As stated, the letters are accompanied by two green sheets with the typed lyrics to "The Wizard" (here titled "The Wizard in the Wood"), along with a stapled packet of five sheets of poetry titled The Wizard, The Owl and The Big Black Cat. Both the lyrics and poems have been trimmed to the same size, likely by Bolan, who has signed both in type: "Marc Bolan. '65."Two of the six photographs show Bolan in the recording session, one up close with him concentrating on something out of sight, and the other in discussion with producers and engineers. The remaining images include two of Bolan sitting on a leopard rug by a miniature roulette wheel and holding a black cat, along with two outside shots of him dressed in a black pea coat. Bolan looks surprisingly young in each with uncharacteristically short hair. Accompanying the letters and photographs is a press release for Bolan's first single with his name spelled "Mark Bowland" and corrected in black marker; a program for the Tyrannosaurus Rex tour "The Lion and the Unicorn" in the Oak Forests of Faun in 1969; as well as a file of press releases about Economides, along with the typescript of a profile of Bolan written by Jewell.An amazing archive capturing Marc Bolan at the start of his career as a solo performer, shortly before the creation of T-Rex made him a legend. .

        In Cold Blood: A True Account of a Multiple Murder and Its Consequences

      New York: Random House, 1965 First edition, limited issue of 500 numbered copies. Signed by Capote on the limitation page. Publisher's black cloth, lettered in gilt; in the publisher's acetate dust jacket; housed in the publisher's red-orange slipcase. Book fine; dust jacket with a closed tear to spine head, minor chip to the spine tail. Overall, a near fine and attractive copy, signed by Capote. In Cold Blood is a fact-based account of the 1959 murders of the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas, and is one of Capote's most popular books. When police found the bodies of the Clutter parents and their two children, there was little to no evidence to suggest a motive or the perpetrators. After reading a brief article about the quadruple murder, Capote became fascinated with the mystery and traveled to Holcomb with his friend Harper Lee to investigate further. He conducted much research, which he used to write a narrative and realistic account for In Cold Blood. Although Capote insisted on the veracity of his book's factualness, subsequent research has shown that, while essentially a truthful account, In Cold Blood presents exaggerated characters and events in addition to at least one completely fabricated interaction. Regardless, the intriguing murder mystery and Capote's captivating writing make In Cold Blood a literary classic and a forerunner in the True Crime genre.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.

        Eleven Poems.

      Festival Publications, Belfast 1965 - First edition, third issue. Octavo, original green wrappers as issued. In near fine condition. Signed by Seamus Heaney on the front cover. In 1957, Seamus Heaney travelled to Belfast to study English Language and Literature at Queen's University Belfast. During his time in Belfast, he found a copy of Ted Hughes's Lupercal, which spurred him to write poetry. "Suddenly, the matter of contemporary poetry was the material of my own life," he said. (BBC) He graduated in 1961 with a First Class Honours degree. In 1963, Heaney became a lecturer at St Joseph's and in the spring of 1963, after contributing various articles to local magazines, he came to the attention of Philip Hobsbaum, then an English lecturer at Queen's University. Hobsbaum set up a Belfast Group of local young poets and this would bring Heaney into contact with other Belfast poets such as Derek Mahon and Michael Longley. His first book, Eleven Poems, was published in November 1965 for the Queen's University Festival. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
