      New York: Fuck You Press, 1965. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. 4to. Side-stapled mimeo wraps. Very good. Some fading to cover. Edgewear with some creasing and chipping. Else clean and sound. Additionally, SIGNED by John Weiners at his contribution. Final issue (the fourteenth) of Sander's legendary and infamous mimeo, printed "At a Secret Location on the Lower East Side." Cover by Sanders. Contributors include Ted Berrigan, John Wieners, Al Fowler, Gilbert Sorrentino, Robert Kelly, and others. Along with the debut and Mad Motherfucker (with its famed Warhol cover) issues, one of the most difficult numbers to acquire - so much so that many sources mistakingly list only 13 issues of FU. In January 1966, Sander's Peace Eye Bookstore was raided by police and copies of FU were confiscated. It seems reasonable to assume this issue's scarcity (and its terminality) are directly related to this incident. [Clay and Phillips pp. 166-68].

        Ariel

      London - Faber and Faber, 1965 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The first edition of the collection of poetry on which Sylvia Plath's reputation as an author rests. Ariel was the second book of Sylvia Plath's poetry to be published, and was originally published in 1965, two years after her death by suicide. The poems in the 1965 edition of Ariel, with their free flowing images and characteristically menacing psychic landscapes, marked a dramatic turn from Plath's earlier Colossus poems. In the 1965 edition of Ariel, Ted Hughes changed Plath's chosen selection and arrangement by dropping twelve poems, adding twelve composed a few months later, and shifting the poems' ordering, in addition to including an introduction by the poet Robert Lowell. With its original unclippped dustwrapper. Condition: In a red cloth binding with original unclipped dustwrapper. Externally, generally smart, though with some very light bumping. Dustwrapper is quite smart, though with some instances of foxing to the rear and some handling marks. Internally, firmly bound. Ink signature to front free-endpaper. Pages are bright and generally clean. Overall: NEAR FINE in aVERY GOOD INDEEDdustwrapper..

        [S&H Green Stamp Invitation / Poster from Warhol's 1965 ICA Retrospective]

      Philadelphia: Institute of Contemporary Art, 1965. First Edition. Fine. Original folded poster invitation; 3 3/4” x 9” folded and 22 3/4” x 22 1/2” open. Very fine; unopened. Famed Green Stamp poster/invitation for Warhol's first retrospective, held at the University of Pennsylvania's Institute of Contemporary Art from October 8th through November 21st, 1965. An infamous event: curator Sam Green issued so many of these invitations that the venue was mobbed. Arthur Danto, in his recent biography of Warhol, described the scene: "There was a crowd of at least two thousand rapturous persons, most of them students. No one had expected a crowd that large, and the curator, Sam Green, to be prudent, removed most of the paintings from the walls, leaving the gallery all but bare. But the crowd had not come so much to look at the art as to see Warhol and his consort. Chants of 'Andy and Edie [Sedgwick]! Andy and Edie!' went up. People were jostled and trampled. It became a problem of crowd control much like what was happening at rock concerts. Andy, Edie, and their party [which included Green] found safety on an iron staircase, where [...] they waved at the crowds below. Finally a hole was axed in the ceiling, and [they] were able to escape to the floor above. Crowd behavior like that [...] was unheard of at art events [...] The change did not escape Warhol's notice. 'To think of it happening at an art opening,' he said. 'Even a Pop Art opening. But then, we weren't just at the art exhibit — we were the exhibit.'" (5). A cornerstone of Warhol's career, an event that demonstrated his growing fame and cemented his reputation as one of the most exciting artists of the 1960's.

        Original Flier for the Premier Screenings of Andy Warhol's Poor Little Rich Girl and Vinyl at the Filmmaker's Cinematheque

      New York: Filmmaker's Cinematheque, [1965]. 8 1/2 x 11", offset printed in b/w. Fine. The original flier for the premier screenings of both films. Poor Little Rich Girl was one of Warhol's early Pop Verite masterpieces, the title an homage to a Shirley Temple film of the same name. The film featured Sedgewick waking up, lounging around on her bed, and showing off clothes. Rare ephemera documenting Warhol's first unscripted sound movie, and the inauguration of Sedgewick and Warhol's collaboration in film. Fine.

        Andy Warhol. (ICA Catalogue)

      Philadelphia: Institute of Contemporary Art, 1965. One preliminary page on glassine has come loose and is laid in, binding slightly stressed as always, tiny scratch to the front cover; close to near fine in Campbell Soup can illustrated perfect-bound wrappers. A respectable copy of a book usually found in subpar condition.. 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.

        [Collection of Four Volumes Related to the Development of the Apollo Program]

      Various: Various, (1965-1966). First Edition. 4to. wraps all. Generally very good. Included are: APOLLO GUIDANCE AND NAVIGATIONS: Space Navigation Guidance and Control (Cambridge: MIT, June 1965), two tape-bound volumes; APOLLO PROGRAMS [sic] PRESENTATION TO AC ELECTRONICS (Elmhurst, NY: Kollsman Instrument Corp., January 1966), spiral bound; and THE LUNAR EXCURSION MODULE FOR PROJECT APOLLO (Bethpage, NY: Grumman, nd [ca. 1966]), stapled wraps. Small and fascinating collection of technical and promotional materials used by NASA and its contractors during the development of the Apollo program. Never publicly circulated (and in one instance numbered for internal tracking), these are all inividually quite scarce. With numerous illustrations, charts, schematics, and designs throughout. OCLC located just six holdings for SPACE NAVIGATION GUIDANCE AND CONTROL, and no copies of either PRESENTATION TO AC ELECTRONICS or LUNAR EXCURSION MODULE. As a collection, therefore, a rare group of artifacts from one of the defining events of the 20th century: man's walk on the moon.

        Goethe

      c. 1965. Sheet size: 161 × 175 mm. Pen and ink on wove paper. Stamped on verso for publication in the Sunday Telegraph. Portrait of the author as a young man, perhaps on the occasion of the 1965 reissue of G. H. Lewes's Life of Goethe. 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.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED

      Gloucester, MA. " Friday, January 15th" [1965].. Four pages. In ink, on rectos only, of octavo letterhead of "The Tavern." Folded for mailing, paperclip rust mark in upper margin (chiefly 1st and 4th leaves), very good. To friend and fellow writer, Paul Metcalf. A somewhat tardy letter of condolence to Metcalf upon the death of his mother, Eleanor, who had died the preceding April. Metcalf's father, Henry, had died in November of 1964, and Olson had written Metcalf at length shortly thereafter, and in that letter, asked that his sympathies be extended to Eleanor as well. Evidently, Metcalf then wrote Olson, telling him of his mother's death, precipitating this reply: "That is indeed the first word I have had of your Mother's death, and again I send you consolation...I should have known, when Harry [Metcalf] did...send me the book with his card and from a hotel but it didn't even occur to me, I so took it the other way about, that Woodlawn again was some Melville matter your mother had thought of...." He passes on thoughts to family members, and touches on other topics: "Would you, for my own puzzlement, tell me if anything did happen to those packages of books [that] were placed on your piazza for transfer to Jonathan? That is, I never could figure out how so many of [indecipherable] that Creeley item, and my own Mayan Letters, did [did not?] ever get any further...." He continues with accounts of his own travels and occasions when he was tempted to stop by and visit, and the toll on his energy and health that traveling now imposes. Eleanor Metcalf (1882- April 1964), Herman Melville's granddaughter and literary executor/editor, made Olson's acquaintance during the 1930s, when he was actively engaged in his "Melville Project" -- the tracking down and transcription of Melville's marginalia. As custodian of much of the Melville family heritage, Eleanor was foremost among his important contacts for that undertaking, and Olson earned what Tom Clark describes in his biography of Olson as "unqualified acceptance into this good woman's...household, where he was welcomed as a sort of surrogate family member...given a standing dinner invitation, a bed to sleep in whenever he was in Cambridge, and, most usefully of all, a direct pipeline to the Melville family papers" (p.24). In turn, Olson's significance for Paul Metcalf and his own writing was considerable. Olson closes the letter, "Yrs, Charles." Ca. 250 words.
