        Comblain -La -Tour, Original Vintage 1965 FestivalPoster

      Comblain -La -Tour, Original Vintage Festival Poster, July 31-Aug.1, 1965, produced by Joe Napoli, designed by Dechy, illustration by M. Ciparisse, printed by Charles Sarley, Heusy. The poster is 19.25" by 13", has been folded, tack holes and impressions to corners, short closed tear to centre fold at right margin, light crease to top right corner, hint of tape residue to verso at the corners, Belgian excise stamp to verso, else, about near fine, clean, unmarked , stored flat and shipped in a mailing tube. In 1959 the small Belgian village of Comblain-La- Tour held its inaugural jazz festival and then over the next eight years became the unlikely site for one of the most exciting jazz festivals in Europe, rivaling Newport and Antibes as a world-class jazz capital. The festival was the brain-child of Joe Napoli, who as a young GI, battle weary and exhausted after the Battle of the Bulge, had found shelter in Comblain late in 1944, where the villagers had looked after him with great kindness. Back in the US Napoli became a successful booking agent and manager, whose clients included trumpeter Chet Baker. In 1959, having never forgotten the kindness shown to him, Napoli found a way to repay the village by offering to hold a jazz festival , in part as a fund-raiser for repairs to Comblain’s church roof. The first festival was a one day event and was plagued by terrible weather (something which was to happen often at subsequent festivals) but which did nothing to dampen the spirits of hundreds of jazz fans who made their way to Comblain. The succeeding festivals were all two day events, and by 1960 were attracting audience of more than 20,000, eager to hear some of the era’s great musicians. From 1959-66 the festival hosted a who’s who of jazz luminaries, including Chet Baker, Bud Powell, Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Ray Charles, Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Art Farmer ,Woody Herman, Benny Goodman, as well as pop stars like Petula Clark and Charles Aznavor. In 2009 the village hosted a festival to mark the 50th Anniversary of the first Comblain- La- Tour. Comblain Jazz Festival Posters are now very scarce and in 1965, the penultimate festival featured John Coltrane’s celebrated Quartet as the festival headliner. J1804 . About Near Fine.

      - CARTOONS. (HANNA-BARBERA) JETSONS ORIGINAL ART. Offered here is a fabulous watercolor circa 1965 used for a Spanish Language book about the Jetsons. Although there is no indication that this is from a Spanish book, it was purchased with other art from a Spanish edition. In Spanish, the Jetsons are known as "Los Supersonicos." When the Flintstones premiered in 1960, it became the first prime time cartoon series made specifically for TV and it is still popular today. It was also very successful in Spanish speaking countries (especially Mexico and Venzuela). The Jetsons was the space age version of the Flintstones. The colors in this artwork are vibrant and the image makes you smile. The image measures 10 x 13" done on art board 12 x 16. Sl. finger soil on edges, near fine. This is a great image of the whole Jetson Gang - George, his wife Jane and their daughter Judy are in a space ship hovering in mid air. Their son Elroy is sitting on a cloud next to Astro the dog.

        [Photographie originale] Flèche signalétique au sol, ca 1965

      1965. Photo. Illus. by Alain Resnais. Très bon. Aucune reliure. 25,3 x 17,4 cm. Circa 1965. Tirage gélatino-argentique d'époque portant au verso le tampon du photographe (et cinéaste) Alain Resnais. De la collection de Jean-Michel Folon. Le sujet représenté est une flèche signalétique, objet essentiel et récurrent dans l'ouvre de Folon. Folon en photographiait lui-même énormément et ses amis photographes lui envoyaient celles qu'ils trouvaient. L'intérêt du cinéaste Alain Resnais pour la photographie est connu, mais ses tirages semblent peu connus et peu nombreux. Cette photographie, et probablement ce tirage-même, apparaît dans le film d'Alain Resnais "La guerre est finie", dans les mains d'Yves Montand, en train de feuilleter des photos de flèches signalétiques au sol (vers la 52 minute, 42e seconde). Il est à noter que Folon a été présent sur le tournage du film, dont il a pris des photos (voir nos références n° 3475, 3476 et XXXX) et que plusieurs de ses propres tirages photographiques figurent dans la même scène (voir référence n° 3483). Folon est également cité dans le film (ves 41'30'' - 41'55'') : "On prépare un livre sur les villes, sur toutes les villes du monde... enfin, sur la manière dont la ville parle avec ses habitants et comment les gens dans la rue lui répondent... comment ça devient un langage... c'est compliqué à dire, mais en images c'est tout simple... Tu verras : on prend des photos des villes et on mélange avec des dessins de Folon et Topor. C'est moi qui ai fait la maquettte avec Agnès. Bill s'en va au Brésil, alors on fait tout de suite le premier choix des photos avant son départ." Resnais avait montré en 1965 à Jogre Semprun, l'auteur du scénario, des dessins de Folon figurant des flèches, et Semprun avait intégré Folon dans le scénario (cf. sa préface à "Folon, aquarelles, gravures et affiches", 1982). Parfait état..

        [Photographie originale] Flèches signalétiques sur une route de Bruxelles, ca 1965

      1965. Photo. Illus. by Jean-Michel Folon. Bon. Aucune reliure. 23,6 x 16,9 cm. Tirage gélatino-argentique d'époque. Au verso les mentions manuscrites "Folon" et "photo à restituer". Cette photographie - et plus particulièrement ce tirage (qui comporte exactement les mêmes défauts dans le coin supérieur droit) - apparaît dans les mains d'Yves Montand dans le film d'Alain Resnais "La guerre est finie" (vers la 52e minute, 40e seconde). Nous connaissons le négatif de cette photographie et pouvons donc sans le moindre doute l'attribuer à Folon. La flèche est un élément essentiel, récurrent, voire obsessionnel dans l'oeuvre de Folon. Il en photographiait lui-même énormément et demandait à ses amis de lui donner des tirages de clichés de flèches ou autres signes urbains qu'ils pouvaient prendre. Il semble que dans cette scène du film, où Yves Montand feuillette six tirages photographiques, dont cinq figurant des flèches signalétiques au sol, quatre des photos soient de Folon et une d'Alain Resnais (voir notre référence n° 3431). Nous joindrons une mauvaise photocopie d'une capture d'écran du film où l'on voit ce tirage dans les mains de Montand. Il est à noter que Folon a été présent sur le tournage du film, dont il a pris des photos (voir nos références n° 3475, 3476 et 3489). Folon est également cité dans le film (vers 41'30'' - 41'55'') : "On prépare un livre sur les villes, sur toutes les villes du monde... enfin, sur la manière dont la ville parle avec ses habitants et comment les gens dans la rue lui répondent... comment ça devient un langage... c'est compliqué à dire, mais en images c'est tout simple... Tu verras : on prend des photos des villes et on mélange avec des dessins de Folon et Topor. C'est moi qui ai fait la maquette avec Agnès. Bill s'en va au Brésil, alors on fait tout de suite le premier choix des photos avant son départ." Resnais avait montré en 1965 à Jorge Semprun, l'auteur du scénario, des dessins de Folon figurant des flèches, car il souhaitait que Semprun intègre Folon dans le scénario (cf. sa préface à "Folon, aquarelles, gravures et affiches", 1982). Notons enfin que Folon faisait faire la plupart du temps un unique tirage de ses photos, deux au maximum et souvent aucun. A part les défauts dans le coin supérieur du tirage, qui lui donnent une valeur "historique" ou du moins cinéphilique, en bel état..

        A Way of Seeing: Photographs of New York by Helen Levitt with an essay by James Agee

      New York: Viking, 1965. First edition. Oblong, quarto. Fine in a fine dust jacket with one small closed tear. Signed by Helen Levitt on the title page. James Agee, dead ten years in 1965, had written his essay for the book in 1946… Although he may not have been the first writer to apply the word lyrical to Levitt's marvelously serendipitous images of urban street theater, his essay was for some time their most persuasive critical frame. In this edition, his text literally brackets the 50 photos, which are arranged in an episodic montage—bleak, antic, poignant; sometimes melodramatic, often comic—at once suggestively narrative and as ephemeral as a passing glance" (Roth, 178). In this timeless work, "Levitt's photographs are beautiful—major, underrated works. Like Henri Cartier-Bresson, she achieves a rare balancing act: her pictures have sentiment without being sentimental" (Parr & Badger II:252).

        There's No Vinism Like Chauvinism - Original Typed Manuscript

Offered here is the complete, original manuscript with handwritten notes and changes. Also included are the two original publisher's mock-up pages with artwork for the story's title page and two sets of publisher's sheets representing the version that was finally published. The condition of this group is very good. Known primarily for his historical novels, much of Jakes' early writing was for the science fiction pulps. He was a prolific short story writer, even into the 1970s, and many of his works were first published in Amazing Stories. This lot provides both a glimpse into pulp magazine production as well as an opportunity to obtain Jakes manuscript material which is rarely offered.

Packaging is split on both sides, contents fine. Text in English, French, Dutch and German. One of 1000 copies. More images available on request. Insanely rare artists book. Legendary Roth/Kwadraatblad collaboration. Very few copies have survived. Currently on show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York is showing this edition in the exhibition Wait, Later This Will Be Nothing: Editions by Dieter Roth. Engaged in many facets of artistic production, from painting and drawing to writing poetry and music, Dieter Roth (Swiss, born Germany, 1930Ð1998) never settled with one style or in one place for long. Among the few constants in RothÕs output was his engagement with editioned mediumsÑbooks, prints, and multiplesÑwhich he made, beginning in his student days, until the end of his life. In experimental projects he radically expanded the definitions of these established formats, spreading his printing plates with organic materials in lieu of ink, filling sausages with ground paper instead of meat, submerging plastic toys in chocolate, and producing a dazzling array of variations on printed postcards. Wait, Later This Will Be Nothing: Editions by Dieter Roth focuses on the artistÕs incredibly innovative and prolific period between the late 1950s and the early 1970s. The exhibition takes its title from a phrase in Snow (1964/1969), a major book project that marked a turning point in RothÕs approach, away from the rigorous, abstract visual language of his early work to an embrace of chance, the everyday, and accumulation. Its pages reflect the mind of the artist at work and are a trove of information about his creative process, plans for future works, literary and technical experiments, thoughts on artistic colleagues, and much more. Snow and the artistÕs subsequent radical experiments with editioned formats challenged traditional notions of beauty and offered an expanded definition of art in the twentieth century.

Watson provided a historical basis for molecular biology, concise descriptions of fundamental chemical concepts, and a discussion of standard techniques and model organisms commonly used in molecular biology studies. The Molecular Biology of the Gene can be seen as Watson laying groundwork for what would culminate with the publication of The Double Helix.

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

      Storyville Publications, Essex, Great Britain 1965 - 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."

With full-page illustrations, including a cartoonish frontispiece of a man with a printing press in the top of his head, as well as typographic ornaments and engravings that include the headings from 19th-century almanacs. The ImpPress Typebook is characterized by Stermer's sense of humor: Stermer writes in the colophon that this type sample book was "...primarily intended as a means by which the Prop is cutting down smoking. It is almost impossible to set type and smoke simultaneously." Although best known as a San Francisco-based illustrator, designer, and art director who worked for such influential magazines as Ramparts and Mother Jones, Dugald Stermer started the ImpPress while living in Houston, Texas during the 1960s. He became inspired to print after he was given a small printing press and some assorted type by his wife for Christmas. From the library of Ben and Bernarda Shahn, with a label laid in designed by their son, Jonathan Shahn. A small library label to front cover, else fine in black printed wrappers. A scarce book: no copies are recorded in OCLC.

        A California Landscape

      Arroyo Grande, CA: Garland Publishing Company, 1965. A few light creases and general wear; very good in photo-illustrated wrappers.. First Edition. Oblong octavo (5 X11), 64 pp. A photographic artist's book published by nineteen year old Jeff Lovelace, with an introductory poem by John Matlack. (A trade edition in a different, less avant-garde format was published by Studio Press, Berkeley, in 1968; that edition, while uncommon in commerce, is easily located in OCLC, while the current offering is referenced only three times, and not in California.) 37 black and white images including the covers, photographed in and around Santa Maria, California, home of Vandenburg Air Force Base, and consisting of shots juxtaposing the base, the natural landscape, and the town, with Lovelace's prose interspersed. Very compelling production, perhaps just shy of brilliance and hindered by a youthful kitsch, but little-known and deserving of a place in the pantheon of sixties artist's books.

His closing statement is captured for the first time in this volume that states, "During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against White domination and I have fought against Black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and achieve, but if need be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with just a touch of wear. An exceptional copy of this classic, most rare signed. There is no easy walk to freedom anywher, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountain tops of our desires" (Nelson Mandela, September 1953).

        A Dialogue With Solitude

      New York: Comunity Press, 1965. First edition of the photographer's seminal work, one of the great photobooks of the second half of the twentieth century. Tall quarto, original gray cloth. Signed by the photographer. Light wear, else fine in a near fine dust jacket with very light wear. A Dialogue with Solitude is an assemblage of photographs into poetic sequence, entailing a mere hundred pages. Dave Heath had envisioned it in a larger format, and its meager size was not his original intent. Regardless, it was an instant hit, and collectors have sought it out for over four decades. "A Dialogue With Solitude is a period piece that resonates" (Village Voice). "A book that has achieved cult status," Heath's photobook is particularly noted for its attempt "to photograph internal emotions… [by investigating] the essential solitude of an individual through a series of sequences" (Parr & Badger II:104).

        Anyone Can Whistle: A Musical Fable

      New York: Random House, 1965. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Warmly Inscribed by both Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim. Light wear, else near fine in a near fine bright jacket without the fading usually encountered with the spine. Anyone can whistle is a play written by the same author of the West Side Story, and it was performed on Broadway in 1964, Carnegie Hall concert in 1995, and the New York City Center Encores in 2010. The New York Times wrote that Laurents' "book lacks the fantasy that would make the idea work, and his staging has not improved matters. Mr. Sondheim has written several pleasing songs but not enough of them to give the musical wings. The performers yell rather than talk and run rather than walk. The dancing is the cream." And Steven Suskin wrote, the "fascinating extended musical scenes, with extended choral work, ... immediately marked Sondheim as the most distinctive theatre composer of his time. The first act sanity sequence ... and the third act chase ... are unlike anything that came before.
