        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..

        Midnight Cowboy. A Novel

      New York: Simon and Schuster,, 1965. New York: Simon and Schuster,, 1965. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a quarter black morocco and yellow cloth slipcase. Lightly rubbed at extremities, spine a little rolled. An excellent copy in the jacket that is just a little rubbed along the edges with a small blue mark at the tail of the spine. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to his close friend and literary mentor Tennessee Williams, "For Tennessee – with all my affection and admiration always – Jimmy. May 14, 1965, New York". Herlihy met Williams in Key West, where they were both part of a circle of gay writers during the 1950s and 60s. As he told Lynn Kaufelt, founder of the Key West Literary Seminary, "'Before Tennessee had a pool installed, he and I went swimming off the Monroe County pier nearly every summer day at twilight… it was inexpressibly comforting to have the daily company of a kindred spirit; just knowing we were involved in the same sort of lunatic pursuit provided some essential ground that meant everything to me'… As late as 1976, when Herlihy's mother died of cancer, Williams was there for him. Herlihy wrote Paul Bowles that year that he spent three months in Key West with his dying mother: 'Tennessee was in Key West during much of that time, and he was enormously considerate. Sent flowers, messages. Cooked for me. Even showed up at the funeral mass, volunteering to act as pallbearer. I was impressed and moved by it all.'" (Snyder, James Leo Herlihy: The Midnight Cowboy in Key West, website of the Key West Literary Seminar). A superb association.

        The Making of Rockets. in Two Parts. The first containing the Making of Rockets for the meanest Capacity. The other to make Rockets by a Duplicate Proposition, to 1000 pound Weight or higher. Experimentally and Mathematically Demonstrated.London: R. Morden, 1696.

      First edition, exceptionally rare, of the first English book on rocketry and the first book to propose the use of metal rocket casings. This development, which enabled the thrust of the rocket to be greatly increased, was principally responsible for the subsequent use of rockets as major weapons of war, and in the twentieth century for space exploration. Only one other copy has appeared at auction for more than a century.<br/><br/> &#10087;Norman 54; Macclesfield 3328 (this copy); ESTC R1638. <br/><br/> This is an extremely rare book. ESTC lists Glasgow and BL only, and the only other copy in auction records is the Andrade-Norman copy. The catalogue of the Andrade sale (Sotheby's, 12 July 1965) states (lot 16): "There is no record of the sale by auction in England of this work since the beginning of BAR" (i.e. British Auction Records, which began in 1903). The present copy must have entered the Macclesfield library via John Collins, with whom Anderson was associated, as noted below. Although this copy has some cropping, it is actually slightly taller than the Andrade-Norman copy, and is unrestored (the Andrade-Norman copy was rebacked). <br/><br/> Anderson states clearly that his purpose is "To raise so great a heap of Fire, and to confirm the Fact by ... Experiments and Demonstrations Mathematical" (A2v). To that end, the present work includes instructions for the construction of rockets of various sizes and types, including rockets that "swim upon the water." "Anderson was important in bringing ballistics into the sphere of mathematics and demonstrating the usefulness of practical experiments in gunnery ... As late as 1742 Benjamin Robbins, a ballistics expert, could find only four writers on the subject who had actually carried out gunnery experiments and observed the results, one of whom was Anderson" (ODNB). <br/><br/> The most important contribution of the work, which seems not to have been noted in the literature, is his clear proposal on B4r (diagram AFEB and the adjoining text) for a rocket casing made from a piece of a gun barrel which is metal, and not the pasteboard which had been used in rocket construction hitherto. This is half a century earlier than published sources place the first use of metal rocket bodies, usually ascribed to the Indian military commander Hyder Ali (1722-82): "Hyder Ali, prince of Mysore, developed war rockets with an important change: the use of metal cylinders to contain the combustion powder. Although the hammered soft iron he used was crude, the bursting strength of the container of black powder was much higher than the earlier paper construction. Thus a greater internal pressure was possible, with a resultant greater thrust of the propulsive jet" (Britannica). <br/><br/> "Anderson (<i>fl</i>. 1668-1696) was a mathematician and silk-weaver of London, whom John Collins, one of the early members of the Royal Society, helped with the loan of books and the supply of scientific information (Stereometrical Propositions, Preface). He devoted special attention to improving the art of gunnery, and during at least twenty-one years from 1671 conducted some thousands of experiments with cannon mounted at his own expense on Wimbledon Common, showing that his means must have been considerable. 'I am very well assured,' he says (<i>Genuine Use and Effects of the Gunne</i>, p. 32), 'I have done more, being a private person, than all the engineers and gunners with their yearly salaries and allowances, since the first invention of this warlike engine'." (DNB). <br/><br/>. 8vo, pp. [xvi], 48, woodcut diagrams in text. Contemporary sheep (spine and edges rubbed, joints cracked, a few page numbers and heading on D3r "Necessary Tables for Rockets" shaved).

      Philadelphia: Chilton Books, (1965). First edition. Herbert&#39;s best-known novel was awarded the first Nebula Award in 1965, shared a Hugo Award in 1966, and was the basis for the film by David Lynch. Regarded as one of the most popular science fiction novels of all time, Dune is a vast, complex story incorporating elements of "hard" science fiction, fantasy, mythology, religion and politics, and set on an exotic planet, the flora and fauna of which are fully realized and described. The combination of its size and popularity, coupled with its having been published by a house better known for its automobile repair manuals, have made this book rather difficult to obtain in fine condition. This is a nearly fine copy in pale blue cloth with heavy gray textured endpapers. The first issue dust jacket, with $5.95 price intact and four-line publisher&#39;s information on rear flap, shows only slight rubbing to corners and a few tiny nicks to extremities.

        The Madrid Suite (Complete in Original Folio)

      New York: Hollander Workshop, 1965. First Edition. Fine. Robert Motherwell (1915-1991) writes in the introduction to the set that he was inspired to do this series by his honeymoon in Madrid in 1958 with his then-wife, the artist Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011). The texture of the plaster walls in their hotel presented an interesting surface on which to draw, making the lines appear like dots and reminiscent of Seurat. In creating this series, inspired by his time in Madrid, Motherwell was able to reproduce the feel of those drawings by using Hollander&#39;s plaster walls in the same way, drawing on lithographic transfer paper. An extremely rare edition of Motherwell&#39;s work, the lithographs were often broken up and sold individually. An important piece by the man who came up with the title "The New York School" which referred not only to him, but fellow abstract expressionist painters Philip Guston, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko. [11] pp. Elephant Folio. Housed in custom brown linen folio with title pasted to front panel with Motherwell&#39;s name and initials also blind embossed to center of label. Interleaved with tissue; all lithographs, tissues, and folio case in pristine condition. Suite consists of ten (10) black & white lithographs printed on white Arches paper measuring 22" x 30". This is edition #31 of 100. Each lithograph is signed and numbered by Motherwell and includes the blind embossed logo of Irwin Hollander (the master-printer) in the lower right corner.
