        Thomas Hardy.

      c. 1965 - Sheet size: 191 × 140 mm. Pencil title on verso. Pen and ink on wove paper, unusually signed by Bentley's initials only. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        Micro Book: Poem of Tu Fu

      Tokyo: Toppan, (c. 1965). (24)pp. This set includes two versions of the ancient Chinese poet Tu Fu's verse "The Eight Immortals of the Wine Cup": a miniature book measuring 1 3/8 inches (35mm.) square, and an ultra-microminiature measuring a mere 3.75mm square. In each, the text is presented in English and Japanese. The ultra-microminiature is contained within a magnifying case attached to a keychain. The case's metal cover is printed with "Micro Book" in white and gold on a black background, and has a distinctly mid-century aesthetic. According to the accompanying bilingual brochure, which includes instructions for opening the case, "This key-holder contains the smallest book ever published in the world... the fruit of our outstanding technical know-how involved in plate-making and printing." The thickness of each letter is approximately equivalent to one-fifth of a human hair. Toppan produced its first Micro Books in 1965 for the New York World's Fair, and the company has continued to break records for the world's smallest book ever since. Housed in a silver plastic clamshell box, lined with satin and red velvet. Only one institutional copy recorded, in a different, less elaborate presentation. Very fine.

        Portrait photograph of President Johnson, inscribed to Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg

      N.p. [Washington, D.C.], n.d. [ca. 1965?] - The (undated) inscription reads: "To Arthur Goldberg-/ With the high regard and affection/ of his friend-/ Lyndon B. Johnson." Appointed by President Kennedy, Goldberg was an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1962 to 1965 and one of the most significant justices of the twentieth century. In his three terms on the bench he pushed the Court's toward a broader construction of personal rights, a course it followed over the following two decades. He is best known for his influential 1963 internal Supreme Court memorandum that condemned capital punishment as an example of "cruel and unusual punishment," as defined by the Eighth Amendment, and his opinion in Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), which argued against a Connecticut law banning the use of contraceptives because it violated an unumerated right to privacy guaranteed by the Ninth Amendment. The memo initiated a wave of litigation and legislation that led to the abolition of the death penalty in several states; the Griswold opinion laid the foundation for Roe v. Wade (1973), which established a women's right to have an abortion. When Adlai Stevenson, Ambassador to the United Nations, died in 1965 President Johnson decided to appoint Goldberg to fill his seat. Johnson's larger plan was to put Abe Fortas on the bench because he knew Fortas would defend his Great Society programs (and spy on the Court for him). Probably a recipient of the legendary Johnson "treatment," Goldberg was persuaded to resign while flying to Stevenson's funeral on Air Force One. This photograph may be a memento of that 1965 flight, or one of the tools Johnson used to persuade Goldberg (JOHNSON, LYNDON BAINES) 10 x 8. Color print, both inscription and signature beneath the image; with credit printed in the image at lower left. Glazed and framed in tasteful black-and-gold wooden 16" x 19" frame. A few tiny nicks to frame, image fine
