        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." Special shipping arrangements may be necessary for overseas orders.

        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.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1965. 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.

First edition, sole impression. This seminal collection of portraits by Bailey is one of the great iconic representations of the Swinging Sixties in London. The subjects typify the newly formed social elite ranging from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones through minor royalty and groovy aristos to film stars, couturiers and gangsters. The mode of publication also hints at a new democratisation. The printing is of lovely quality but photomechanical which meant the cost could be kept down to just three guineas. Copies of this important publication in such nice shape as this complete with both packing inserts have become quite scarce.
