        Philip Johnson Correspondence and Manuscript

      1965. A collection of papers relating to Philip Johnson, one of the most important and influential American architects of the 20th Century, and his 1966 book Philip Johnson: Architecture, 1949-1965. The collection includes a Typed Letter Signed from Johnson, his seven-page Signed book contract, along with the 36-page annotated manuscript introduction to the book by his friend, the architectural historian, Henry-Russell Hitchcock, and a Typed Letter Signed by Hitchcock.Philip Johnson (1906-2005) was one of the greatest and most important American architectural minds of the 20th Century and played an enormous role in both understanding and creating the modern urban skyline. He started his career as critic and curator championing the work of other major modern architects, twice serving as Directors of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (1930-1936 and 1946-1954). Later he took a more active role designing groundbreaking houses and public buildings including his famous Glass House resident in New Canaan, Connecticut, as well as the Seagrams Building and AT &T Buildings in New York. He was awarded the first Pritzker Prize in 1979.The brief Typed Letter Signed from Johnson is to Arthur Cohen, editor-in-chief at Holt, Rinehart, and Winston, concerning book negotiations, and is accompanied by a typescript of Cohen's reply. The Typed Letter Signed from Hitchcock is also to Cohen. Hitchcock discusses his plan to detail the portions of Johnson's career that he witnessed first hand, specifically his and Johnson's mounting of their landmark 1932 exhibition entitled "The International Style," which introduced a generation of American architects to the new European approach toward design characterized by the use of glass and steel, emphasizing function and structure over ornamental decoration. All are near fine or better with the final page of the manuscript torn along the right margin.A small but remarkable archive from one of the country's greatest architects.

        In Cold Blood

      New York: Random House, 1965. First edition / First printing.. Hardcover, boards & cloth in dust jacket.. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket.. Octavo. While others may have merely dabbled in the genre, Truman Capote set out to write an instruction manual on how to craft the 'nonfiction novel' with "In Cold Blood." "True crime or nonfiction novel - no matter what the genre, the hotly contested work originally broke ground when published in four installments in "The New Yorker Magazine" ("In Cold Blood: A True Account of a Multiple Murder and its Consequences") in the fall of 1965 and was immediately repackaged by Random House as the "nonfiction novel' "In Cold Blood." Debate ensued over which genre the novel best fit rather than spurring commentary on the horrifying voyeuristic account of the Clutter family murders, including the subsequent trial and execution of their murderers. Written with the assistance of his childhood friend, Harper Lee (of legendary "To Kill a Mockingbird" fame), Capote and Lee traveled to Holcomb, Kansas to interview local residents and talk with investigators. Debate continues today as to the validity of nonfiction told through a narrator's voice. The novel also set a new trend in journalism for print and television, and still used today as a basis for teaching journalism in universities across the country. ~Quickly made into the 1967 film of the same name starring Robert Blake (Perry Smith) and Scott Wilson (Richard Hickcock) as the murderous duo, it received four Academy Award nominations (Best Director, Best Original Music Score, Best Cinematography and Best Adapted Screenplay). It was also adapted for a television mini-series in 1996 starring Anthony Edwards and Eric Roberts, and was the subject of the 2005 film "Capote," starring Philip Seymour Hoffman. ~Stated 'First Printing' on the copyright page.

      containing 80 b/w and coloured "automatic drawings" drawn in Florence 1965. Richard Mortensen (1910-1993) is without doubt the artist who has been most important for the development of the abstract art in Denmark - as an artist as well as writer and educator. He was one of the persons taking initative in starting the group Linien and the periodical with the same name. Also internationally he asserted himself strongly, especially during his residence in Paris 1947-1963 where he exhibited at Denise René. Beyond his paintings, Mortensen, strongly inspired by Kandinsky, made a series of automatic drawings which in harmony with the theories of psychoanalysis arised as messages from the unconscious mind. These drawings could be conclusive works of art, or they could be used as material for the painting. This collection should, according to the information received, come from the late Copenhagener artdealer Hybler, who in the 1960ies had close connection to Galerie Denise René in Paris and who also was artdealer for Richard Mortensen. According to the same source the collection was done, spontaneously, when Mortensen received the information of the sudden death of his friend Jean Corbusiers

      Deya, Mallorca, Spain. 25 June 1965.. Four pages, in ink, on four leaves of airmail flimsy letterhead. Folded for mailing, otherwise about fine. Marked "Confidential," to "Dear Mr. [Edwin] Sy," then special collections curator at Lockwood Memorial Library: "Enclosed a number of photographs. The 'Robert Graves Day' rather embarrasses me because I have always tried to remain a private character, but, having a large family to support, I have been forced to make public appearances in U.S. & England. And the recent deaths of the four best known poets writing in English - Frost, Cummings, Eliot [,] Edith Sitwell - - has as it were sucked me upwards by the vacuum they created." He continues further in detail about his need to raise funds by way of another sale of his manuscripts, and his feelings of obligation to Lockwood. He has assembled "a collection of prose manuscripts to be sold by my friend Lawrence Wallrich ... Various buyers, from the coasts mainly, would have paid the money if the collection had included verse. But all the verse (which is the most important of course) has always gone to you ... Now since April 23 1964 I have written the nearest to poetry that I can claim to have come; and nothing else but an occasional article or lecture. The wad of poem drafts is about three inches thick. Wallrich suggests that I 'sweeten' the prose collection by including these; but I tell him that I should satisfy my moral debt by asking your permission ... What I should most like of course would be for you to buy the whole lot ...." He continues further about the possibilities of making such a sale come about ("There would be no hurry about payment so long as I have a contract to show my bank, to borrow on"), forthcoming publications, other possible sources of revenue (" Solomon and Sheba musical which Alex Cohen has signed a contract for and wishes to produce on Broadway"), etc. He concludes: "At 70 I feel in a way that I am just beginning. Whatever your reaction to this letter, I shall send you a contribution to the display - - the Army pack with my name and rank still on it, which I wore in World War I." Signed in full, "with best wishes to you all." Accompanied by an 8 x 10 press photograph of Graves, captioned on the verso by Sy, and a newspaper clipping about the exhibition marking Graves's "79th [sic] Birthday," corrected in ms. to '70'.

        S & H Green Stamps. [Invitation to Warhol's First Museum Show at the Philadelphia ICA]

      Philadelphia: Institute of Contemporary Art, 1965. First Edition. The folded poster invitation to Andy Warhol's first museum show at the Philadelphia Institute of Contemporary Art, October 8 - November 21, 1965. Offset printed in a reported edition of 6000 copies, a ridiculous number given the gallery could hold only 300 people. Yet Sam Green, who organized the show and had recently been appointed director of the ICA, was keenly aware of Warhol's growing celebrity and was himself cashing in on an act of self-promotion. When it was clear the opening crowd would be closer to the number of invitations printed rather than the capacity of the gallery, Green pulled all the pieces of the wall and turned Warhol and his entourage into an impromptu exercise in performance art. Folded as designed; a fine copy.
