        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.

        The American Indian: Aspects of His Culture and An Indication of His Present Status in the Society of His Dispossesors

      (n.p.): (Pithekos Press/Bowdoin College). (1965). Unbound, folded and gathered sheets for a fine press limited edition with unattributed text on the "Historical Perspective," "The Indian Portrait," and "The Economic Aspect." With nine full-page unattributed woodcut portrait illustrations, most retaining their tissue guards. According to the colophon, 50 copies were produced, or were to be produced, in May of 1965 and this was the third work of this now-elusive press. 22 leaves. 10-1/2" x 13". Oddly, although not obviously misbound, two of the text pages repeat; else fine. The leaves were laid into a plain brown folder, which is present, but split at the fold and losing its edges. An attractive production, very possibly the prototype for a student fine press edition that was never completed. We can find no record of this title in OCLC nor in the specific catalog of Bowdoin College; nor can we find any listing for any other volume issued by this press. That being said, it is an attractive production: the woodcuts were apparently done by different artists and some are quite striking; the text, which is highly critical of U.S. historical treatment of Native Americans, is an early example of the kind of social criticism that the 1960s became famous for: the Free Speech Movement in Berkeley was taking place in the same academic year this was produced, and it wasn't for another two or three years that widespread criticism of the Vietnam War spilled over into widespread critical reevaluation of the national myths and official histories of the United States. This Bowdoin production is evidence of these ideas simmering on college campuses prior to their exploding into the national consciousness. A powerful piece and a notable historical document. First Edition.

        Incredibly desirable 2pp memorandum of Carl T. Rowan with awesome Viet Nam content. Endorsed with the handwriting of none other than Lyndon B. Johnson

      "Autograph Endorsement, 8? x 10.5?, 2p, Washington, D. C. April 26, 1965 the memo from Carl T. Rowan, Director of the United States Information Agency regarding the public stance Johnson should take in his upcoming press conference about the United States/Viet Nam question. At the top of the page, LBJ has written ""get to Bill M-"" He is referring to Press Secretary, Bill Moyers. Also at the bottom of the first page, is an unknown hand is the pencil notation, ""This kind of speculation is unproductive and harmful."" There are secretarial filing notes in the upper left corner. Fine condition. In this memo, Rowan points out the press conference would be an excellent opportunity to ?win world support (or mute criticism) for our policies and actions with regard to Viet Nam.... 1. Peking and Hanoi both seem to cling to an assumption that world opinion...will force you to pull back from your present policies. 2. Should negotiations occur in any forum, we will need all the support that we can muster from other countries....Countries and leaders who sympathize with us privately....are somewhat critical of us publicly because of this overriding fear of war. Your John Hopkins speech .... Put the United States on the ?peace? offensive without weakening our pledge to South Viet Nam....our desire to help build Southeast Asia rather than bomb it, ...we would prefer to bring American Boys home from Viet Nam instead of sending more in ?" if only the aggressors would leave their neighbors alone.?At the press conference on April 27, 1965, Johnson said, in part ?We are engaged in a crucial struggle in Viet-Nam. Some may consider it a small war, but to the men who give their lives it is the last war and the stakes are high. Independent South Viet-Nam has been attacked by North Viet-Nam. The object of that attack is total conquest. Defeat in South Viet-Nam would deliver a friendly nation to terror and repression. It would encourage and spur on those who seek to conquer all free nations that are within their reach....Through the first 7 months of 1964, both Vietnamese and Americans were the targets of constant attacks of terror. Bombs exploded in helpless villages, in downtown movie theaters, even at the sports fields where the children played. Soldiers and civilians, men and women, were murdered and crippled, yet we took no action against the source of this brutality--North Viet-Nam....I say again that I will talk to any government, anywhere, any time, without any conditions, and if any doubt our sincerity, let them test us. Each time we have met with silence, or slander, or the sound of guns. But just as we will not flag in battle, we will not weary in the search for peace.?Also included is an earlier interoffice memorandum dated September 28, 1964 from George Stevens to Richard Goodwin on National Citizens for Johnson ?" Humphrey stationary, measuring 8.5? x 11?. The memo is in regards to how to use the half-hour national television time in October.At the time of this memo, Lyndon Johnson was running as the incumbent President against Barry Goldwater. Goldwater was campaigning on a platform that he would use an atomic bomb on Hanoi, ending the war. Johnson?s approach was to look for a more ?peaceful? means to the end of the war. The memo suggests showing clips of ?Test Ban?, ?Hot Line to Moscow? and ?our military strength is the great instrument in keeping the peace?"

        Photographie originale] Flèches signalétiques sur une route de Bruxelles, ca 1965.

      1965 - 23,6 x 16,9 cm. Tirage gélatino-argentique d'époque. Au verso les mentions manuscrites "Folon" et "photo à restituer". Cette photographie - et plus particulièrement ce tirage (qui comporte exactement les mêmes défauts dans le coin supérieur droit) - apparaît dans les mains d'Yves Montand dans le film d'Alain Resnais "La guerre est finie" (vers la 52e minute, 40e seconde). Nous connaissons le négatif de cette photographie et pouvons donc sans le moindre doute l'attribuer à Folon. La flèche est un élément essentiel, récurrent, voire obsessionnel dans l'oeuvre de Folon. Il en photographiait lui-même énormément et demandait à ses amis de lui donner des tirages de clichés de flèches ou autres signes urbains qu'ils pouvaient prendre. Il semble que dans cette scène du film, où Yves Montand feuillette six tirages photographiques, dont cinq figurant des flèches signalétiques au sol, quatre des photos soient de Folon et une d'Alain Resnais (voir notre référence n° 3431). Nous joindrons une mauvaise photocopie d'une capture d'écran du film où l'on voit ce tirage dans les mains de Montand. Il est à noter que Folon a été présent sur le tournage du film, dont il a pris des photos (voir nos références n° 3475, 3476 et 3489). Folon est également cité dans le film (vers 41'30'' - 41'55'') : "On prépare un livre sur les villes, sur toutes les villes du monde. enfin, sur la manière dont la ville parle avec ses habitants et comment les gens dans la rue lui répondent. comment ça devient un langage. c'est compliqué à dire, mais en images c'est tout simple. Tu verras : on prend des photos des villes et on mélange avec des dessins de Folon et Topor. C'est moi qui ai fait la maquette avec Agnès. Bill s'en va au Brésil, alors on fait tout de suite le premier choix des photos avant son départ." Resnais avait montré en 1965 à Jorge Semprun, l'auteur du scénario, des dessins de Folon figurant des flèches, car il souhaitait que Semprun intègre Folon dans le scénario (cf. sa préface à "Folon, aquarelles, gravures et affiches", 1982). Notons enfin que Folon faisait faire la plupart du temps un unique tirage de ses photos, deux au maximum et souvent aucun. A part les défauts dans le coin supérieur du tirage, qui lui donnent une valeur "historique" ou du moins cinéphilique, en bel état.

        Richard Nixon correctly predicts a Democratic defeat in the 1966 California governor's race: "If the California Democratic Party fails to purge itself of these radical Left-wing elements, registered Democrats by the thousands will refuse to support the Democratic nominee and will assure an overwhelming Republican victory in 1966."

      "Typed Letter Signed ?Dick?, on his personal letterhead, 1 page, 7.25 x 10.5?, New York, September 29, 1965 to newspaper magnate James Copley concerning his statements regarding the left wing of the Democratic Party in California. Offered together with a typescript of his remarks on the issue before the Republican State Central Committee Convention, 1 page, 8.5? x 11? San Francisco, September 25, 1965. Staple holes in top left corner, light mailing folds, else fine condition. Nixon writes, in full: ""For over four years the 'Far Right' problem has plagued the Republican Party because of the continued attacks by Democrats and so-called liberal columnists and commentators. It seemed to me that it was time to put this whole subject in perspective by pointing out that the Democratic Party has an even greater problem with the 'Far Left.' I am enclosing a copy of some remarks I made in this vein at the Republican State Central Committee Convention in San Francisco on Saturday, September 25."" The accompanying typescript of his statements emphasize similar points, and reads, in part: ""...The radicals of the Left post a afar greater threat to the Democratic Party in California than do the radicals of the Right to the Republican Party. The Right-wing radicals are a fringe of the Republican Party. The Left-wing radicals are part of the very fabric of the Democratic Party in California."" Nixon then publically challenged Governor Brown to do more to purge the party of these elements that he blamed for a variety of abuses, including: ""They brought a great University to its knees through disgraceful and illegal riots and demonstrations. They advocate appeasement of our enemies abroad - from Castro in Cuba to the Communists in Viet Nam. They give aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States by advocating the halting of troop trains and tearing up of draft cards. They reject the rule of law and preach and practice rule by the mob."" Nixon concluded, ""If the California Democratic Party fails to purge itself of these radical Left-wing elements, registered Democrats by the thousands will refuse to support the Democratic nominee and will assure an overwhelming Republican victory in 1966."" True to Nixon's prognostications, Ronald Regan, campaigning on a message critical of ""welfare bums"" as well as the burgeoning anti-war movement and the counterculture, won the governorship of California. Ironically, in 1968 Regan would test the presidential waters by mounting a ""Stop Nixon"" campaign which fizzled out in the wake of Nixon's overwhelming delegate count at the Republican National Convention in Miami Beach."

        Storyville, Volume 1 through Volume 158 (consecutive and nearly complete run of the magazine)

      Storyville Publications, Essex, Great Britain, 1965, Paperback, Book Condition: Near Fine, First editionSoftcover magazine--6 1/4" x 8" format. Lot (not bound) contains 158 consecutive issues of the magazine, from the first, in October 1965, to issue number 158 in June 1994. (There were a few additional issues published between 1984 and 1995--see below.) All issues in very good or better condition. Each issue of this noted British magazine for collectors of classic jazz and blues records contains several articles, reviews, photos, discographies, and ads. Each issue about 40 pages. There are two copies of issue #119. One has a signed, typed note from the editor (to a subscriber) laid in. From an obituary for editor Lawrence (Laurie) Wright, who died in 2010: "Issue 1 appeared in October 1965. Initially a typical enthusiasts’ fanzine it grew rapidly into what became a peer-reviewed journal of scholarship overseen by Laurie and The Storyville Team. Laurie bought a used Gestetner offset printer to print the publication, which was then collated, folded, stapled and trimmed on equipment ranging from Victorian in vintage to home-made, by other members of the Team. The entire text was prepared for plate-making by Team members on four Olympia typewriters with a Congress-Elite font, using manual half-and quarter-spacing to justify the print columns, first by inspired guesswork then acquired skill, saving typesetting cost. In 1973, Dave French and an IBM Compositor joined the effort, saving labor, eyesight and operator patience, and taking the efficiency level a step beyond Gutenberg. This volunteer crew made the bi-monthly operation financially achievable, inspired substantially by Laurie’s impetus. The schedule was maintained, with very few hiccups; these largely caused by external forces such as postal strikes (another nationally British trait) for 162 issues up to June 1995, upon which Laurie published four biennial volumes, solo, up to 2003. Laurie used his time in retirement thereafter, to carry out detailed analyses of the African-American press, which brought to light a mass of additional data and a postulated re-dating of the activities of the Paramount record label."

Pinter was an actor as well, and here uses his stage name, which was David Baron. The Homecoming won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1967, and Merchant was nominated for Best Actress. As good an association as is possible in what is probably the Nobel Prize-winning playwright's best-known, and commercially most successful drama. .

Fotografie in bianco e nero a piena e doppia pagina di René Maechler Il mio occhio, idealmente piazzato dov'è l'occhio della Donna - e quale emozione in questa sostituzione segreta - scopre per la prima volta un'altra prospettiva. I due seni, alti e rotondi, svelano l'ombelico. Più giù, e non ho quasi la forza di proseguire l'esplorazione visiva, è un'ombra vasta, scurissima, eccitante sino alla debilitazione. Catalogo ansiosamente: seni, dorso, occhi, labbra, denti luccicanti. E poi: strane forme filiformi (peli?), curve irriconoscibili, tagli netti o appena inutili, e tutto sprofonda di nuovo nell'astratto. Anche questa volta non sono riuscito a possedere tutto il Corpo. Riprovo ancora. Ma, come mai, tutto è cambiato. Nuove forme, nuova luce. Tutto diverso. Un Nuovo Corpo?" (dal testo di G. Thonet).

      New York: Random House, 1965. Prima edizione (First Edition, First Impression). ril tela, sovrac (cloth, DJ). Ottimo (Fine). 8vo. A True Account of a Multiple Murder and its Consequences E' solo con questo romanzo, tradotto in italiano "A sangue freddo", che la narrativa di Capote si sviluppò nel senso di una più obiettiva e puntuale analisi dei fatti. L'opera, che ebbe un clamoroso successo commerciale e fu anche portata sullo schermo, si basava su un fatto di cronaca nera realmente avvenuto: la strage di una facoltosa famiglia del Kansas compiuta, apparentemente senza motivo, da due psicopatici più tardi processati e condannati alla pena capitale. Il libro, che fu definito da Capote stesso come appartenente al genere della "nonfiction novel" fu il risultato di 5 anni di attente ricerche sul crimine e sui suoi esecutori, fino a comprendere una precisa e documentata indagine sulle motivazioni sociali e psicologiche che portarono i due assassini al delitto. Dust jacket has price of $5.95 on upper right of front flap, 1/66 at lower right corner of front flap [Galati, 1980; Tartarus, 2007]
