        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. A fine, unread copy in a fine, price-clipped, dust jacket. Quite uncommon in this condition.

        Sketchbook

      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

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED

      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 ("...my 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'. Provenance: library of James S. Copley.

        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.

        A DIALOGUE WITH SOLITUDE

      (HEATH, DAVE). Heath, Dave. Foreword by Hugh Edwards. With Brief Texts by James Baldwin, T.S. Eliot, W.B. Yeats, Wright Morris, Rainer Maria Rilke, Matthew Arnold, Robert Louis Stevenson, Stephen Crane & Hermann Hesse. A DIALOGUE WITH SOLITUDE. Culpepper, VA & New York: A Community Press Publication Distributed By Horizon Press, 1965. First Edition. 4to. Cloth. Photography Monograph. Near Fine./No Jacket. np, 83 duotone illustrations. Designed by Dave Heath. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. From Hugh Edwards' foreword: "A Dialogue With Solitude is a self-portrait in which the artist himself never really appears, but is revealed and interpreted by every detail. From the beginning of the sequence to its end, the viewer accompanies his unseen guide, out of darkness and troubled sleep, on a pilgrimage through an unpredictable environment where contradiction seems to be the only law. It is a solitude crowded with human beings, all of whom he recognizes and understands, but with whom he can make no exchange other than the gestures of an almost mechanical ritual. Along the way are pauses, marked by poetic quotations". Beginning with the Philadelphia native's tour of duty during the Korean war, "Dialogue"'s dark, murky images capture ten years of winding through an America seen through the shadows of Barnum, Sartre and Camus. With resonances of Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Lisette Model and Ed Van Der Elsken, Dave Heath's landmark book was a truly an innovative work upon its unheralded 1965 appearance, and remains one of the highlights of Post-war photographic literature. A bright, handsome copy of the first edition itself (cited on page 104 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II" and page 43 of "From Fair to Fine: 20th Century Photography Books That Matter") lacking its fragile dust jacket and showing a very slight crimp to the tips of the boards at the lower foredge corners.

        Space-time approach to quantum electrodynamics? WITH "The Theory of Positrons? in: Physical Review, Vol. 76, No. 6, pp. 769-89 and 749-59, September 15, 1949

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS of Feynman?s literal ?reformation of quantum mechanics itself;? claiming ?that he could not understand standard quantum theory and had to recreate it on his own, Feynman?s famous diagrams, introduced and developed here for the first time, ?elegantly rewrite quantum theory? (American National Biography; Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 102). Of the three pivotal formulations of quantum mechanics, Feynman?s was the third, following Heisenberg?s matrix formulation and Schrodinger?s wave equation formulation; Feynman?s is the third formulation. Feynman?s path integral formulation was ?another way of thinking about QED that is probably as visualizable as any theory of quantum fields is ever going to be, and relatively easy to calculate with. The key idea was to represent every possible particle interaction with a space-time diagram. Photon wordlines (their trajectories through spacetime) are represented by wavy lines, while particles such as electrons and positrons are straight lines or curves? (Peacock, The Quantum Revolution, 102).?The dramatic discovery that Feynman made is that the space-time description of a positron moving forward in time is EXACTLY equivalent to the same mathematical description of an electron moving backward through time along the same track in the Feynman diagram. In addition, because photons are their own antiparticles, there is no difference in this description between a photon moving forward in time and one moving backward in time... An electron proceeding through space and time meets an energetic photon, absorbs it, and is scattered backward BACKWARD IN TIME until it emits an energetic photon and recoils in such a way that it moves forward in time again. Instead of three particles, two electrons, and a positron in a complicated dance, we have one particle, one electron that zigzags its way through space AND time, colliding with photons here and there along the way. Feynman (along with Tomonaga and Schwinger) won the 1965 Nobel Prize ?for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles? (Nobel Foundation).CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to. 10.5 x 7.75 inches (262 x 194mm). Bound in original wraps rebacked. Very faint library stamp on the front and rear wrap as well as the first page; literally the stamps are very difficult to even see. Otherwise fine condition in every way.

        Typed Letter Signed to John Berendt

      1965. Burroughs responds to Berendt, future author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, who had written to Burroughs in his capacity as Associate Editor at Esquire Magazine, inquiring as to whom Burroughs would like to have portray him in a hypothetical film biography. In a typed paragraph, Burroughs chooses himself. In part: "A writer has no life story apart from his writing so any biography of a writer is fictional. Proceeding from this proposition I cast myself as myself in a biographical film since I write my own biography as I go along..." A short typed letter signed by Burroughs serves as a cover letter, sent by air post from England with Burroughs saying he has been traveling and hopes he has not missed the deadline. More than 150 words total; two pages, folded for mailing, stapled in the upper corner; fine. With hand-addressed air mail envelope. .

        PATRIARCH TREE

      Worcester: Stanbrook Abbey Press, 1965. ONE OF 550 COPIES (this is copy #403). Printing and Binding of the Highest Order 267 x 191 mm (10 1/2 x 7 1/2"). xvii, [3], 81, [1] pp., [3] leaves. Translated by a Benedictine of Stanbrook Abbey. ELEGANT RUSSET MOROCCO BY BERNARD MIDDLETON (stamp-signed with his monogram on rear pastedown, and with autograph note in colophon), covers with complex border of six plain or decorative black or gilt rules, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments ruled in gilt and black and with gilt fleuron centerpiece, olive green morocco label, elaborate inner gilt dentelles, handmade Japanese endpapers, top edge gilt. In a matching buckram slipcase with morocco lip. Red printer's device on title page and mounted black and white photographic portrait of the poet. Prospectus and a sample title page with the printer's handwritten note laid-in at front, along with an autograph letter to the purchaser ("Mr. Segel") from Sister Hildelith Cumming (see below); colophon signed by the printer and with a manuscript note regarding the special binding by Middleton. In pristine condition. This extremely pleasing production from the Stanbrook Abbey Press was specially bound by Bernard Middleton for display in the Victoria & Albert Museum Exhibition "Stanbrook Abbey Press and Sir Sydney Cockerell, a Centenary Exhibition," held 11 November 1976 to 13 February 1977. After the exhibition, the printer Dame Hildelith Cumming sent the volume on to its owner, with the note laid in at front. Established (as the exhibit indicates) in 1876, the Stanbrook Abbey Press was one of the first modern hand-presses in England. According to DNB, Sir Sydney Cockerell "formed a close though mainly epistolary friendship with the scholarly Roman Catholic nun Dame Laurentia McLachlan (1866-1953) of Stanbrook Abbey, Worcestershire. He placed his connoisseurship and knowledge of fine book production at the disposal of this learned Benedictine house with its printing press, and his friendship with its abbess withstood even an imprudent introduction to another of his friends, George Bernard Shaw." Under Dame Hildelith, the Stanbrook Abbey Press became "renowned for the quality of its book design and press work. She initially sought advice from printers and typographers, notably Jan van Krimpen, whose types were used in the majority of fine books from 1958 onwards. The combination of handmade papers and distinguished types, with the calligraphy and decorations of Margaret Adams, characterized much of Stanbrook's output. The press produced some eighty titles between 1956 and 1988." (DNB) Our volume contains poems by the Russian-born French poet and mystic Raissa Maritain (1883-1960), with the French text on the left-hand page and the English translation by one of Stanbrook Abbey's scholarly nuns facing it. Born in 1924, Bernard Middleton has been for many years widely recognized as perhaps the finest book restorer in the English-speaking world. But in addition to his restoration work (and in addition to his substantial output of publications on binding), he has, in his words, "produced in the region of 100 modern designed bindings." He was a founding member of the Guild of Contemporary Bookbinders as well as president of the Designer Bookbinders. He was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire in 1986. With typical modesty, Middleton says about his work: "As a book restorer, I am primarily a craftsman who incidentally produces simple designs for the embellishment of occasional fine bindings, rather than a trained designer who binds books for the purpose of giving expression and permanent form to his creative ideas. . . . My designs are intended to please the eye, not engage the intellect, principally by the employment of textures, strongly defined shapes and contrasts, and by the play of light on gold, preferably in combination and in a manner which complements the book.
