        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

        BORDER - VOL. 1, NO. 2

      Border Press, Fort Smith 1965 - Mimeographed sheets in pale green printed wrappers, stapled - a Very Good+ copy. Light wear and toning to the extremities, creasing along the lower front wrapper, with light foxing to top edge of text and staples beginning to rust. The very scarce second issue of this short-lived literary magazine published by Wayne Philpot's Border Press. The issue contains 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.

        [Printing Plate]: Hear Martin Luther King. Rally on Human Rights Day, December 10 to Benefit South African Victims of Apartheid

      New York: American Committee on Africa. [1965]. Large printing plate. Measuring 12.25" 16.25". Zinc[?] printing plate mounted on hardwood (probably cherry). A little rubbing else very near fine; eyelet and wire on verso presumably used to hang on a wall. Printing plate for an apparently lost poster. The rally at Hunter College featured Dr. King, Leon Bibb, Miriam Makeba, H. E. Achkar Marof (Guinea's Representative to the U.N. and head of the U.N. Committee on Apartheid), Pete Seeger, and an unnamed South African exile. The goal of the event was to raise money for the legal defense of political prisoners and support the families of South African men in jail, which at the time would have included Nelson Mandela. While a leaflet for the event exists with similar (but not identical) text but with different layout, we could find no evidence of examples of this larger poster or broadside. A unique artifact showing the intersection of the Civil Rights and Anti-Apartheid Movements. .
