You have all of my best wishes and regards. Sincerely, Jim Herlihy, New York. July 21, 1965." Waldo Salt wrote the screenplay for the John Schlesinger-directed film featuring Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight, the movie became the only X-rated film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture (it has since been re-graded to an R rating, and will perhaps, in some hyper-desensitized future, ultimately be approved for General Audiences as a family triple feature with The Exorcist and Taxi Driver). A sharp copy with a significant association.

      Charles Skilton Ltd. London. Number 70 of 450 signed copies (of a total of 500). With an ALS from W. R. Flint. 1965 - [Colophon]: 500 copies of which 450 are for sale have been printed in Pastonchi type by Charles Skilton at his Press in Alexandra Road, London S.W. 19. This book was designed & its production supervised throughout by Sir William Russell Flint who offers his affectionate gratitute for their assistance to two old friends Adrian Bury & Gordon Roe. Copy Number 70 [signed] W.Russell Flint/. 7 1/2 in. x 11 in., half-title with key design; title-page printed in red and black, and blue, with a design; dedication page; author's statement page; prologue by Adrian Bury. [1]-[60](colophon) + signed page. With fine initial letters printed in blue, story titles printed in red; various designs of gates, bells, candlesticks, etc., printed in black, and with reproductions of comments about the short stories, in Flint's calligraphic handwriting, reproduced in light brown. Blue cloth spine and sides with the titling gilt on the spine, and black cloth over boards, with the gilt key-ring design on the front cover, dark blue endpapers; with the clear cellophane wraparound present (this shows a crease on the back inner flap, and minor chipping to the edges), in the blue paper-covered slipcase (this shows very light edge tanning, some light staining to the upper left-hand side). The book is in fine condition. The inserted ALS is handwritten on both sides of an 8 in. x 10 in. sheet of paper, with Flint's address printed in red at the top of the sheet; it is written in his large, characteristic handwriting, and shows a horizontal fold across the sheet. This copy was sent to our founder, Peter Keisogloff (1900-95), with the handwritten personal letter, mentioned above, signed by Sir William Russell Flint: From Sir William Russell Flint, R.A. Peel Cottage, 80 Peel Street, Campden Hill, W.8 Park 6561. March 1. 1965 My dear Peter Keisogloff, I deliberately omit the formal "Mr" because, although we only met once, I regard you as a good friend. With this there will arrive a little book of my own, Shadows in Arcady. It is an experiment not only in story-telling but to some extent in typography, every item being my own placing + design. It is to be published on April 4, my 85th birthday + I do hope you will like it. In fact a word from you about it would be very welcome indeed. I treasure the volume containing reproductions of my "Greek" illustrations which you so kindly sent me, already almost two years ago. With Kindest regards + all good Wishes, Sincerly yours, [signed]: WRussell Flint/. Provenance: from the personal collection of our founder, Peter Keisogloff, who was a great admirer of Flint's work. [Author's statement]: My love of good typography and intense appreciation of the masterpieces of early printers have moved me to the production of this book. The decision to print four of my own stories instead of some beloved classic allows me liberty to indulge in caprices of arrangement which I devoutly hope will not detract from their sincerity. Three of these stories are true. One is at least half-true. Some names, not all, have been discreetly altered. The stories are honourably introduced by one friend, Adrian Bury, and, later, are saluted equally honourably by another friend, Gordon Roe. Any extravagance of presentation must be attributed to my own waywardness, not to my patient and erudite printer, Charles Skilton. WRF. Sold together only, the copy of the book, with the ALS.

        Madrid Suite, Number 7 [G]

      Hollander Workshop, New York 1965 - ORIGINAL LITHOGRAPH BY ROBERT MOTHERWELL, one of only 100 signed and numbered by Motherwell. "For this series, one of many works with a Spanish theme, Motherwell recalled an experience he had while honeymooning in Madrid with Helen Frankenthaler in 1958. He had pinned drawing paper on the hotel walls and like the way the texture of the wall transferred itself to the sheets as he drew. To re-create this experience, Motherwell taped transfer paper to the spackled walls of [printer Irwin] Hollander's studio and rubbed the sheets with lithographic crayons to achieve the desired transfer of texture" (Wye and Figura, Artists & Prints: Masterworks from the Museum of Modern Art). As Motherwell's printer and collaborator Hollander later explained: "These are rubbings! a transfer of feeling from Madrid to Tenth Street. So by putting a French transfer paper on the wall and taping it, he could take litho crayons and rub. Again, using five grades of pencils, five grades of crayons, five grades of blacks, five grades of washes, he could explore and touch the surfaces. And he did it ten times. Those things sold out. People really loved this kind of symbol. Rich blacks and whites-they're the most desired. These are so rare that only a few people have these. It was just like play. They have to be looked at and spoken about very differently-that's the essence of them. Here is the simple language of Motherwell, coming from the hand, the wrist, very freely, innocently, seeing the surface of the wall, not imposing his own will. He's still working within a grade of five, which is pure language. The language of the greases" (quoted in Belknap, The Prints of Robert Motherwell: A Catalogue Raisonne).

In her 1988 memoir, Jump in the Waves, she wrote that her nurse, Miss Coque, told Jacqueline that: ¿¿with a chess set, it is impossible to be bored.¿ More than a salvation from dullness, the game soon became both a passion and a refuge to Jacqueline. Though she wrote of feeling neglected by her parents and oppressed by a nanny during her childhood, chess offered her an opportunity to forge her own identity independent of her famous family name. In 1937 Jacqueline married Gregor Piatigorsky, a world-renowned cellist. The two immigrated to the United States with their daughter Jephta at the outset of World War II, first settling in Elizabethtown, New York, where their son Joram was later born. Though she had not received any formal chess training, her desire to compete led her to participate in correspondence chess tournaments sponsored by Chess Review. After another series of moves, Jacqueline and her family settled in Los Angeles, California. There, Gregor joined the faculty of the music department at UCLA, while Jacqueline became further immersed in the world of chess. At an auction, she met International Master Herman Steiner, who after learning of her skill, encouraged her to compete in tournaments over the board. He was instrumental in the flourishing of her playing career on the national level, recommending that she be invited to the 1951 U.S. Women¿s Chess Championship. After his death in 1955, Jacqueline took over the management of his chess club, the Hollywood Chess Group, and renamed it the Herman Steiner Chess Club in his honor. Jacqueline soon rose to the top of the field of women¿s chess and participated in the U.S. Women¿s Championships six times in the 1950s and 1960s. Her best result occurred in 1965, when she won second place behind Gisela Gresser. She also defeated her rival, Woman International Master Mona May Karff in such a captivating manner that the New York Times printed their game. Jacqueline took part in another historic first for women¿s chess in 1957, representing the United States in the inaugural Women¿s Chess Olympiad in Emmen, the Netherlands, with teammate Gisela Gresser. Jacqueline played on second board, and the team won a bronze medal in the historic competition. Later that same year, she took her first step in the arena of chess promotion, serving as the chairperson for the U.S. Women¿s Chess Championship, which was held in Los Angeles and sponsored by the Herman Steiner Chess Club. During the mid-to-late 1960s, Jacqueline participated in tournaments less frequently. However, over the course of the same decade, she dedicated herself more fully to chess promotion, first co-sponsoring a match between former child prodigy Grandmaster (GM) Samuel Reshevsky and rising star GM Bobby Fischer. Also sponsored by the American Chess Foundation, the match was held in both New York and Los Angeles. The match ended prematurely over a disagre [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
