        A Thousand Days: John F. Kennedy in the White House

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1965. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a near fine Inscribed by the author, "For Frank and Edith with admiration and affection Arthur M. Schelsinger Jr." The recipient was Frank McCulloch, who was chairman of the National Labor Relations Board and is mentioned in this volume. Also laid in is a memorial service bulletin for McCulloch. There is a quote in the bulletin from Schlesinger, which reads, "He brought civility into labor- management relations, and humanity into politics. I wish there were more Frank McCullochs around today." One of the few now classic works regarding the Kennedy White House years. A nice association. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, this is the classic study of the presidency of John F. Kennedy as told by a master historian who had the advantage of personally witnessing the great and tragic events of which he writes. "Of all the Kennedy books . . . this is the best." (Time).

        [Type Specimen] ImpPress Typebook: Being a Complete Showing of Typefaces, Borders, Dingbats, Miscellanea Available at the Aforementioned

      (Houston, TX: ImpPress, 1965). Small octavo. (12)ff. One of 150 copies, signed by the artist and printer, Dugald Stermer. A quirky type specimen book printed on various colors of paper, in many colors of ink. 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.

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.

        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.

        Original Silkscreen Poster: Untitled [Portrait of Pete Seeger]

      N.p. 1965 - Original four-color screenprint, 89cm x 57cm (ca 35" x 22-1/2"), on heavy white poster stock. Signed in pencil lower right, dated 1965. Light edgewear; darkening and adhesive tape remnants to verso; image bright and clean - Very Good to Near Fine. Striking portrait of a folksinger with a twelve-string guitar. Though untitled, the image bears a strong resemblance to Newman's 2009 poster-portrait of Pete Seeger, who we strongly suspect is the subject of this piece as well. Rare image by the talented West Coast printmaker Earl Newman (b. 1930), who began designing posters for the California music scene in the late 1950s. Some of his best-known designs have been his annual posters for the Monterey Jazz Festival, which he began producing in 1963.

        DER BEMALTE VOGEL [THE PAINTED BIRD]

      [Bern & Munich]: Scherz Verlag, [1965].. 343,[1]pp. Gilt cloth. About fine, in edgeworn, slightly nicked and frayed dust jacket, with two short tears at lower edge of upper panel.. First edition in German of the author's controversial first novel, translated by Herbert Roch. The dedication copy, inscribed in Kosinski's hand below the printed dedication to his first wife, Mary: "...and without whom this life would have no other aspect than that of the absurd -- with all my feelings of love and devotion. Jurek. Bern, September 1965." Kosinski's use of "Jurek," the name he adopted while in Europe for protection from possible anti-Semitic persecution due to his given name ("Józef Lewinkopf"), is curious. Kosinski and his first wife, Mary Hayward Weir, were divorced in 1966; she died shortly thereafter.

        State Funeral of Sir Winston Churchill

      London: The Earl Marshal's Press Office Ministry of Defence 29 January 1965. 1st Edition. No Binding. Fine. SCARCE PRESS RELEASE FOR THE STATE FUNERAL OF WINSTON CHURCHILL. Churchill died on 24 January, 1965. "The funeral was six days later, the coffin having lain in state in Westminster Hall for the preceding three days. It was the first time since Gladstone in 1898 that any non-royal personage had been so treated" (Roy Jenkins). It has been said with only slight exaggeration that the whole word paid tribute to Churchill on January 30, 1965, for representatives from over 100 countries came to pay their respects, forming the largest gathering of dignitaries ever in Britain. Only the funeral of Pope John Paul II in 2005 surpassed Churchill's funeral in the number of statesmen attending. The press release, with the strict note that it was "not for publication before 0001 hours Saturday, 30th January 1965" covers in minute detail every aspect of the funeral. The included charts illustrate the order of procession, the deployment in the New Palace Yard, and the arrival at St. Paul's. [London]: The Earl Marshal's Press Office, Ministry of Defence, 29 January, 1965. 11 mimeographed 8x13 inch sheets (two page 10's) with three additional maps and diagrams on thicker stock. Stapled together in center. Custom cloth box. A remarkable survival- only very slight wear to edges and a few scattered spots.

        ?Gravitational Collapse and Space-Time Singularities,? in Physical Review Letters, Vol. 14, 1965

      First edition of Roger Penrose?s 1965 proof laying ?the foundations of the modern mathematical theory of gravitational collapse? (DeWitt-Morette, Black Holes, 126).   In a discovery with profound ramifications for the Big Bang Theory and crucial in understanding of black holes and modern physics, Penrose used the equations of general relativity to show that ?when a large object [such as enormous, dying stars] collapses under its own gravity it must, according to Einstein's theory, necessarily end up containing a ?singularity? [a place of zero volume and thus of infinite density such as a black hole]? (ibid). Building on the work of Wheeler and Chandrasekhar, and others, Penrose demonstrated ?that if the universe obeys general relativity and several other constraints, when a very massive star has no nuclear fuel left to burn and collapses under the force of its own gravity, it will inevitably be crushed to a point of infinite density and infinite spacetime curvature, a singularity.  [He showed that] this will happen even if the collapse isn?t perfectly smooth and symmetrical.  No ?might? about it.  It must? (Ferguson, Fire in the Equations, 101).  Using ?the wealth of new techniques and concepts which were introduced in [Penrose?s] proof, particularly the notion of a trapped surface and the idea of treating boundary horizons as dynamic entities in their own right,? Penrose collaborated with a fellow member of his study group at Cambridge named Stephen Hawking.  In 1970 they demonstrated that Penrose singularities can occur with any type of gravitational collapse, in including that of the big bang at the beginning of time (DeWitt, 126).CONDITION & DETAILS: Volume 14, complete. 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Bound in red buckram that is lightly rubbed and scuffed at the edges. Tightly and very solidly bound. Bright and clean throughout. Very good condition.

        [The Danzig Trilogy, comprising] The Tin Drum; Cat and Mouse; Dog Years

      New York: Pantheon [Harcourt, Brace & World, through 1965], 1961. First Printings. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Printings of the first American editions, with matching dust jackets illustrated with drawings by the author. All translated from the German by Ralph Manheim. 8vo's; 592; 190; 570pp. The Thin Drum (Pantheon, 1961): Publisher's finely woven red cloth, the upper boarded stamped with a device of the "tin" drummer, the spine lettered in black and gilt, with a matching black top stain and threaded end papers, the dust jacket priced at $6.95. Both book and jacket are virtually As New, with no discernible faults. Cat and Mouse (Harcourt, Brace & World, 1963): Publisher's finely woven black cloth, the upper boarded stamped with a device of a curled-up cat, the spine lettered in red and gilt, the dust jacket priced at $3.95. Both book and jacket are in Fine condition, barring just a shade of toning to the jacket's spine. Dog Years (Harcourt, Brace & World, 1965): Publisher's original black cloth with brown end papers, the spine lettered in gilt, the dust jacket priced at $6.95. Fine, square and tight, in a Fine jacket with no wear. The Tin Drum, the first installment in the author's Danzig Trilogy, offers a searing indictment of the role ordinary Germans played in Hitler’s National Socialist regime and of their reluctance to address issues of guilt in the postwar era. At the time of the book's publication, the dominant historical view held that National Socialist crimes had been committed by a few fanatical individuals—an idea endorsed by the Nuremberg Trials of key Nazis in 1945-1946. It was not until the Auschwitz trials of 1963-65 that the part played in the Holocaust by “ordinary” men and women was fully documented. Grass’s next two books, Cat and Mouse and Dog Years, continue his exploration of this, until then, widely unacknowledged perspective. When Grass was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1999, in large part for the Danzig Trilogy, the prize committee noted the books' remarkable portrayal of “the forgotten face of history.” Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.&

        The Four Seasons. An Impression of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter: a Landscape Panorama

      London: Gogmagog Press, (1965-66). Four small octavo volumes, each with (26)pp. Each volume is one of 100 copies printed on Hosho paper and signed by Morris Cox, the artist/printer. Each volume contains a colorful panorama of nature printed from heavily textured blocks, which give the offset prints an embossed effect. The changing seasons appear in a flowing image with delicate natural forms and subtle hues, evoking the harmonious elegance of East-Asian woodblock printing. Colin Franklin says that the group is "reckoned as the peak of his achievement as a printer." The unusual texture of the prints derives from the unique printing blocks used to create them. Cox mounted sheets of cardboard onto plywood and layered them with gesso, next adding materials from nature like seeds, leaves, and twigs. These natural elements were then varnished for strength. Slight slant to spines, light toning to spine label of Autumn, else a fine set in monotype-printed pictorial boards and original acetate wrappers.

        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.
