      London: Jonathan Cape, [1965] - Octavo, dark pink decorated wrappers with publisher's printed paper label affixed to front wrapper. Advance copy (uncorrected proof) of the first British edition. One of the purest expressions of Vonnegut's social and political criticism, and of his idealism, in his fiction. Eliot Rosewater is a good man, a vision of secular sainthood, in spite of the corrupting forces of the world. Kilgore Trout appears, too. The musical adaptation was the first collaboration of Menken and Ashman, and a little-known gem. Pieratt, Huffman-klinkowitz and Klinkowitz AF8 (not noting the proof state). Lightly rubbed along spine folds, faint crease at lower front corner tip, a nearly fine copy. A rare proof. (#102827) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Anyone Can Whistle: A Musical Fable.

      Random House, New York 1965 - First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Warmly Inscribed by both Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim. Fine in a near fine bright jacket without the fading usually encountered with the spine. Anyone can whistle is a play written by the same author of the West Side Story, and it was performed on Broadway in 1964, Carnegie Hall concert in 1995, and the New York City Center Encores in 2010. The New York Times wrote that Laurents' "book lacks the fantasy that would make the idea work, and his staging has not improved matters. Mr. Sondheim has written several pleasing songs but not enough of them to give the musical wings. The performers yell rather than talk and run rather than walk. The dancing is the cream." And Steven Suskin wrote, the "fascinating extended musical scenes, with extended choral work, . immediately marked Sondheim as the most distinctive theatre composer of his time. The first act sanity sequence . and the third act chase . are unlike anything that came before." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Draeger, 1886-1966

      Paris: Draeger Frères, 1965. Significant edgewear, extensive chipping to spine edges, else very good in photo-illustrated extended french flaps. Tattered publisher's bellyband laid in, with crisp original reader reply card.. Square Quarto. First Edition. Unheralded company book by Draeger Fères, the famed French printer known for working with artists such as Matisse and Bill Brandt. In this highly produced book, focus is on the creative commercial art potential of Draeger's photography laboratories. Made apparently for an American market shortly after merging with a New York advertising agency, the book is a tour of mostly European fine art from Impressionism to Pop. However, rather than simply reproduce photos of the artwork, the company's photographers and lab developers labored to create unique, highly manipulated photo images that each pay homage to a particular artist or style. Though created to show off the the creative and design potential of Draeger Fères to potential clients, the book becomes a sort of history of the twentieth century filtered through the lens of an emerging underground psychedelic graphic language. Concludes with tipped in photo illustration of a three year old Nicolas Draeger, extending his arms to the future.

        Cowboy Kate and Other Stories

      New York: Crown Publishers, 1965. Prima edizione (First edition). ril tela, sovrac (cloth, DJ). Ottimo (Fine). 4to (cm 36x27). Introduction by Norman Hall. Synopsis by Desmond Skirrow. Technical information by Sam Haskins. Photographs in black and white This book presents a phenomenon. She is the new London girl. She is Julie Christie, and Sandie Shaw, and In 1961, the high-brow publisher The Bodley Head seemed ahead of the game when it published Bill Brandt's Perspective of Nudes. In 1965, however, things had progressed so far that it was able to publish Cowboy Kate and Other Stories by South African photographer Sam Haskins, a wholly frivolous book that reflected the frivolous side of the decade. This was the first of many similar "soft-porn" books issued by "respectable" publishers, with titles like Six Nymphets, Birds of Britain, and Young London Permissive Paradise (Parr & Badger, pp. 77, Vol. III) [Parr, Badger, 2014; Roth, 2004]

        LA LLAVE DE LOS CAMPOS (El Techo de la Ballena)

      Ediciones El Techo de la Ballena, 16 pgs. aprox., Caracas, Venezuela 1965 - Catálogo editado por Galería del Techo, Galería du Dragon, abril de 1965. Ilustrado con láminas de reproducciones en b/n. Cubierta desplegable. Textos de Max Clarac Serou, Edmundo Desnoes y Perán Erminy. De los numerosos movimientos artísticos venezolanos que confirieron su peculiar nota tumultuosa a la década del sesenta en Caracas, hubo uno que se distinguió por su violencia, su espíritu anárquico, su voluntaria agresividad pública, haciendo de la provocación un instrumento de investigación humana. Fue el que libérrimamente se autodenominó El Techo de la Ballena. Tanto o más importante que esas condiciones estrepitosas, que lo definieron como un estallido más que como una escuela o una estética coherente, fue su capacidad para aglutinar por breve tiempo a un conjunto de creadores jóvenes entre quienes se contaron algunos de los narradores y poetas que habrían de llevar a cabo la renovación literaria contemporánea de Venezuela. El solo hecho de que en ese movimiento hayan militado, con diverso grado de participación, narradores como Adriano González León o Salvador Garmendia que habrían de constituirse en figuras centrales de la nueva prosa narrativa del país, o poetas como Juan Calzadilla, Francisco Pérez Perdomo, Efraín Hurtado, Caupolicán Ovalles, Dámaso Ogaz, Edmundo Aray, entre otros, prueba la imantación mostrada en el primer quinquenio de los sesenta por El Techo de la Ballena, la cual puede realzarse más si se agrega la contribución capital que le prestaron artistas plásticos como Jacobo Borges o Carlos Contramaestre, siendo este último quien más ostensiblemente definió sus rasgos iniciales y algunas de sus posiciones artísticas centrales. El movimiento se constituyó a comienzos del año 1961; en marzo de ese año abrió, en un simple garaje de la urbanización El Conde, de Caracas, una exposición titulada Para restituir el Magma y publicó su primer manifiesto-revista que era una simple hoja plegada, bajo el título Rayado sobre el Techo, al tiempo que en el diario La Esfera daba a conocer un breve texto programático. Tras esta inauguración se sucedieron diversas actividades: declaraciones, hojas sueltas, pequeñas plaquettes de poesía y prosa, con una visible y poco usual tendencia a la teorización apodíctica que encontraba en los manifiestos su instrumento preferido y que delataba la concepción vanguardista que habían asumido sus integrantes.

        Andy Warhol. (ICA Catalogue)

      Philadelphia: Institute of Contemporary Art, (1965). Covers very lightly soiled, binding completely intact (a rarity); a near fine copy in the distinctive wrappers, illustrated with Campbell's Soup Cans.. First Edition. Small octavo. A catalogue published in conjunction with Andy Warhol's first museum exhibition, held at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, October 8 - November 21, 1965. Famously organized by Sam Green, the 25 year-old director of the Philadelphia ICA, appointed largely as a result of his relationship with Warhol. The opening of the show was a logistical disaster: large crowds, akin more to a rock concert than an art opening, prompted Green to pull all the art off the walls before people stormed in. Thus Warhol and his entourage became the only art to see, accelerating his status as a Pop art icon. The catalogue was itself a revelation. Created with Ben Birillo, who had been responsible for some of the most recognizable Pop art ephemera of the era, the pages are printed on heavy card stock colored green, silver, and blue, with mostly full-bleed images, 27 total, and entirely devoid of text, save Green's opening essay.
