        [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. .

        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.
