        Original Silkscreen Poster: Untitled [Portrait of Pete Seeger]

      N.p. 1965 - Original four-color screenprint, 89cm x 57cm (ca 35" x 22-1/2"), on heavy white poster stock. Signed in pencil lower right, dated 1965. Light edgewear; darkening and adhesive tape remnants to verso; image bright and clean - Very Good to Near Fine. Striking portrait of a folksinger with a twelve-string guitar. Though untitled, the image bears a strong resemblance to Newman's 2009 poster-portrait of Pete Seeger, who we strongly suspect is the subject of this piece as well. Rare image by the talented West Coast printmaker Earl Newman (b. 1930), who began designing posters for the California music scene in the late 1950s. Some of his best-known designs have been his annual posters for the Monterey Jazz Festival, which he began producing in 1963.

      [Bern & Munich]: Scherz Verlag, [1965].. 343,[1]pp. Gilt cloth. About fine, in edgeworn, slightly nicked and frayed dust jacket, with two short tears at lower edge of upper panel.. First edition in German of the author's controversial first novel, translated by Herbert Roch. The dedication copy, inscribed in Kosinski's hand below the printed dedication to his first wife, Mary: "...and without whom this life would have no other aspect than that of the absurd -- with all my feelings of love and devotion. Jurek. Bern, September 1965." Kosinski's use of "Jurek," the name he adopted while in Europe for protection from possible anti-Semitic persecution due to his given name ("Józef Lewinkopf"), is curious. Kosinski and his first wife, Mary Hayward Weir, were divorced in 1966; she died shortly thereafter.

        State Funeral of Sir Winston Churchill

      London: The Earl Marshal's Press Office Ministry of Defence 29 January 1965. 1st Edition. No Binding. Fine. SCARCE PRESS RELEASE FOR THE STATE FUNERAL OF WINSTON CHURCHILL. Churchill died on 24 January, 1965. "The funeral was six days later, the coffin having lain in state in Westminster Hall for the preceding three days. It was the first time since Gladstone in 1898 that any non-royal personage had been so treated" (Roy Jenkins). It has been said with only slight exaggeration that the whole word paid tribute to Churchill on January 30, 1965, for representatives from over 100 countries came to pay their respects, forming the largest gathering of dignitaries ever in Britain. Only the funeral of Pope John Paul II in 2005 surpassed Churchill's funeral in the number of statesmen attending. The press release, with the strict note that it was "not for publication before 0001 hours Saturday, 30th January 1965" covers in minute detail every aspect of the funeral. The included charts illustrate the order of procession, the deployment in the New Palace Yard, and the arrival at St. Paul's. [London]: The Earl Marshal's Press Office, Ministry of Defence, 29 January, 1965. 11 mimeographed 8x13 inch sheets (two page 10's) with three additional maps and diagrams on thicker stock. Stapled together in center. Custom cloth box. A remarkable survival- only very slight wear to edges and a few scattered spots.

        ?Gravitational Collapse and Space-Time Singularities,? in Physical Review Letters, Vol. 14, 1965

      First edition of Roger Penrose?s 1965 proof laying ?the foundations of the modern mathematical theory of gravitational collapse? (DeWitt-Morette, Black Holes, 126).   In a discovery with profound ramifications for the Big Bang Theory and crucial in understanding of black holes and modern physics, Penrose used the equations of general relativity to show that ?when a large object [such as enormous, dying stars] collapses under its own gravity it must, according to Einstein's theory, necessarily end up containing a ?singularity? [a place of zero volume and thus of infinite density such as a black hole]? (ibid). Building on the work of Wheeler and Chandrasekhar, and others, Penrose demonstrated ?that if the universe obeys general relativity and several other constraints, when a very massive star has no nuclear fuel left to burn and collapses under the force of its own gravity, it will inevitably be crushed to a point of infinite density and infinite spacetime curvature, a singularity.  [He showed that] this will happen even if the collapse isn?t perfectly smooth and symmetrical.  No ?might? about it.  It must? (Ferguson, Fire in the Equations, 101).  Using ?the wealth of new techniques and concepts which were introduced in [Penrose?s] proof, particularly the notion of a trapped surface and the idea of treating boundary horizons as dynamic entities in their own right,? Penrose collaborated with a fellow member of his study group at Cambridge named Stephen Hawking.  In 1970 they demonstrated that Penrose singularities can occur with any type of gravitational collapse, in including that of the big bang at the beginning of time (DeWitt, 126).CONDITION & DETAILS: Volume 14, complete. 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Bound in red buckram that is lightly rubbed and scuffed at the edges. Tightly and very solidly bound. Bright and clean throughout. Very good condition.

        [The Danzig Trilogy, comprising] The Tin Drum; Cat and Mouse; Dog Years

      New York: Pantheon [Harcourt, Brace & World, through 1965], 1961. First Printings. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Printings of the first American editions, with matching dust jackets illustrated with drawings by the author. All translated from the German by Ralph Manheim. 8vo's; 592; 190; 570pp. The Thin Drum (Pantheon, 1961): Publisher's finely woven red cloth, the upper boarded stamped with a device of the "tin" drummer, the spine lettered in black and gilt, with a matching black top stain and threaded end papers, the dust jacket priced at $6.95. Both book and jacket are virtually As New, with no discernible faults. Cat and Mouse (Harcourt, Brace & World, 1963): Publisher's finely woven black cloth, the upper boarded stamped with a device of a curled-up cat, the spine lettered in red and gilt, the dust jacket priced at $3.95. Both book and jacket are in Fine condition, barring just a shade of toning to the jacket's spine. Dog Years (Harcourt, Brace & World, 1965): Publisher's original black cloth with brown end papers, the spine lettered in gilt, the dust jacket priced at $6.95. Fine, square and tight, in a Fine jacket with no wear. The Tin Drum, the first installment in the author's Danzig Trilogy, offers a searing indictment of the role ordinary Germans played in Hitler’s National Socialist regime and of their reluctance to address issues of guilt in the postwar era. At the time of the book's publication, the dominant historical view held that National Socialist crimes had been committed by a few fanatical individuals—an idea endorsed by the Nuremberg Trials of key Nazis in 1945-1946. It was not until the Auschwitz trials of 1963-65 that the part played in the Holocaust by “ordinary” men and women was fully documented. Grass’s next two books, Cat and Mouse and Dog Years, continue his exploration of this, until then, widely unacknowledged perspective. When Grass was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1999, in large part for the Danzig Trilogy, the prize committee noted the books' remarkable portrayal of “the forgotten face of history.” Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.&

        The Four Seasons. An Impression of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter: a Landscape Panorama

      London: Gogmagog Press, (1965-66). Four small octavo volumes, each with (26)pp. Each volume is one of 100 copies printed on Hosho paper and signed by Morris Cox, the artist/printer. Each volume contains a colorful panorama of nature printed from heavily textured blocks, which give the offset prints an embossed effect. The changing seasons appear in a flowing image with delicate natural forms and subtle hues, evoking the harmonious elegance of East-Asian woodblock printing. Colin Franklin says that the group is "reckoned as the peak of his achievement as a printer." The unusual texture of the prints derives from the unique printing blocks used to create them. Cox mounted sheets of cardboard onto plywood and layered them with gesso, next adding materials from nature like seeds, leaves, and twigs. These natural elements were then varnished for strength. Slight slant to spines, light toning to spine label of Autumn, else a fine set in monotype-printed pictorial boards and original acetate wrappers.

        Storyville, Volume 1 through Volume 158 (consecutive and nearly complete run of the magazine)

      Essex, Great Britain: Storyville Publications, 1965. First edition. Paperback. Near Fine. Softcover magazine--6 1/4" x 8" format. Lot (not bound) contains 158 consecutive issues of the magazine, from the first, in October 1965, to issue number 158 in June 1994. (There were a few additional issues published between 1984 and 1995--see below.) All issues in very good or better condition. Each issue of this noted British magazine for collectors of classic jazz and blues records contains several articles, reviews, photos, discographies, and ads. Each issue about 40 pages. There are two copies of issue #119. One has a signed, typed note from the editor (to a subscriber) laid in. From an obituary for editor Lawrence (Laurie) Wright, who died in 2010: "Issue 1 appeared in October 1965. Initially a typical enthusiasts’ fanzine it grew rapidly into what became a peer-reviewed journal of scholarship overseen by Laurie and The Storyville Team. Laurie bought a used Gestetner offset printer to print the publication, which was then collated, folded, stapled and trimmed on equipment ranging from Victorian in vintage to home-made, by other members of the Team. The entire text was prepared for plate-making by Team members on four Olympia typewriters with a Congress-Elite font, using manual half-and quarter-spacing to justify the print columns, first by inspired guesswork then acquired skill, saving typesetting cost. In 1973, Dave French and an IBM Compositor joined the effort, saving labor, eyesight and operator patience, and taking the efficiency level a step beyond Gutenberg. This volunteer crew made the bi-monthly operation financially achievable, inspired substantially by Laurie’s impetus. The schedule was maintained, with very few hiccups; these largely caused by external forces such as postal strikes (another nationally British trait) for 162 issues up to June 1995, upon which Laurie published four biennial volumes, solo, up to 2003. Laurie used his time in retirement thereafter, to carry out detailed analyses of the African-American press, which brought to light a mass of additional data and a postulated re-dating of the activities of the Paramount record label."

        Photograph of Lyndon Johnson, Inscribed to Arthur Goldberg.

      1965 - Johnson, Lyndon Baines [1908-1973]. [Goldberg, Arthur (1908-1990)]. [Photograph of Johnson Inscribed to Goldberg]. N.p., N.d. (1965?). 8" x 10" color portrait photograph, printed credit in the image at bottom left, glazed and framed in tasteful black-and-gold wooden 16" x 19" frame. Bold inscription and full signature below image. A few tiny nicks to frame, image fine. * 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 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 un-enumerated 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. Goldberg went on to say that he accepted the UN Ambassadorship in order to resolve the Vietnam Conflict. This photograph may be a memento of that 1965 flight, or one of the tools Johnson used to persuade Goldberg.

First edition. 8vo, in the publisher’s original black cloth lettered in gilt on the spine, in the original pictorial dustjacket. 221pp. A bright and pleasing copy, the dustjacket very attractive and fresh with a small amount of light rubbing to the edges, some dustiness to the rear cover. SCARCE. Jamaica provides the setting for this taut and psychological James Bond adventure. It was a bit of a departure in “Bond style” for Ian Fleming. This novel leans away from the complex plots, world-threatening super villains or cold war antics usually associated with the series and concentrates instead on James Bond himself. It is set in more simple surroundings and there is much on his relationship with the man he has been sent to assassinate. It is a book about James Bond the man, his inner thoughts, and his attempt to recover his “self” after being brainwashed to kill M. To do this he has to kill the most deadly assassin in the world, THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN. The reduction in the amount of action and glamour is easily made up for with the psychology and mind games leading up to the final gun fight.

        Zorba's Dance [Association Copy Signed by Mikis Theodorakis, George Seferis, Anthony Quinn, and Alan Bates]

      London: Robbins Music Corporation, Ltd, 1965. First edition. Wrappers. Fine. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing of musical score for the song "Zorba's Dance" (a touch of age toning, a bit of edge wrinkling primarily at the corners) by Mikis Theodorakis, SIGNED BY MIKIS THEODORAKIS, GEORGE SEFERIS (in Greek, TO REX WARNER), ANTHONY QUINN, and ALAN BATES, comprised of the covers and 4 pages of music composed by Theodorakis for the movie "Zorba the Greek", starring Anthony Quinn, Alan Bates, and Irene Papas, and featuring the song. The front cover reproduces a photograph (or still) showing Anthony Quinn (who played Zorba in the movie) and Alan Bates (who played Basil) doing the dance that Zorba taught to Basil. George Seferis signed at the top of the front cover to his fellow author, dear friend, and frequent translator, Rex Warner, and Alan Bates signed the front cover above his arm in the cover photograph. Anthony Quinn signed on the first page of the musical score, above the song's title, and Mikis Theodorakis, the composer, signed at the head of the score's 4th, and final, page. Composer, song writer, author, playwright, poet, philosopher, and activist, Mikis Theodorakis, wrote the music for the film Zorba the Greek (1964), as well as for Z (1969), for Serpico (1973), and for 17 other movies. He also composed numerous symphonies and the scores of numerous ballets, operas, and musicals. [Based on two traditional Cretan songs, "Armenohorianos Syrtos" and "Kritiko syrtaki" and written especially for the movie "Zorba's Dance" rapidly gained worldwide popularity and the catching tune continues to be played in Greek tavernas. The recording of it made by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass (which they called "Zorba the Greek") reached number 11 on the Billboard chart, and a version recorded by Marcello Minerbi reached number 6 on the August, 1965 UK singles chart.] Born in Crete and a friend of George Seferis, Lawrence Durrell, Rex Warner, and Nikos Kazantzakis (who authored the novel "Zorba the Greek"), Theodorakis shared with those authors their great fascination with Crete, and, along with along Seferis and Kazantzakis, was a fierce opponent of the oppression imposed by the dictators who ruled Greece through much of the 1960's. A Greek Diplomat and Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, George Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. Copies of the music offered here are quite rare to the market and this remarkable Association copy SIGNED BY THE COMPOSER MIKIS THEODORAKIS, BY GEORGE SEFERIS, one of Greece's most important 20th Century Poets and the first Greek winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature (1963), to his good friend, frequent translator, and fellow author Rex Warner, and FURTHER SIGNED BY ANTHONY QUINN and by ALAN BATES, the principal stars of the movie which brought Kazantzakis to worldwide fame and which was the high water mark of Quinn's career, is RARE INDEED.
