        The Orchard Keeper.

      New York: Random House, 1965. First edition of the author's rare first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the title page. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with some light fading to the spine. Books signed by McCarthy are uncommon, especially his earlier novels. The novels of Cormac McCarthy owe much to William Faulkner, especially in their "use of dialect and concrete sense of the world? a debt McCarthy does not dispute. ?The ugly fact is books are made out of books,? he says. ?The novel depends for its life on the novels that have been written.' "Cormac McCarthy is expert in generating an emotional climate, in suggesting instead of in stating, in creating a long succession of brief, dramatic scenes described with flashing visual impact" (The New York Times).

        Ten Poems

      Belfast: Festival Publications,, [1965]. Octavo, single quire. Original white wrappers, wire-stitched, lettered in black, centrepiece illustration to front wrapper in purple. With a black and white postcard sent by Longley. Tanning to wrapper, dampstain, light foxing, offsetting, and creasing to rear wrapper, a very good copy. First edition, first issue, signed and dated by the author on the inner front cover. This is the author's first publication and, as well as being the most desirable, the first issue is by far the most scarce. Festival Publications printed this among a series of pamphlets by other emerging Irish poets like Seamus Heaney, Derek Mahon, and Philip Hobsbaum, and this loosely defined group "is generally identified as the beginning of the Northern Irish poetry revival of the late 1960s through to the 1980s" (ODNB). The recipient of the postcard was Irish bibliophile Dr Philip Murray, whose collection was sold in 2016 in Ireland's largest-ever sale of first editions. Longley responds in the affirmative to Murray's request for book signings at their next meeting.

        Charlotte Moorman, Cellist / Nam June Paik, Human Cello - "26'1.1499" for a String Player by John Cage. - Original Vintage Silber Gelatine Abzug. Mit handschriftlicher Bezeichnung von Nam June Paik und dem roten Atelierstempel von Peter Moor, rückseitig handschriftlich datiert "Oct. 4 1965" und mit "A21" nummeriert.

      New York, 4. Oktober 1965 - 17,5 x 23 cm. Eine der schönsten Arbeiten von Moorman und Paik, die kurzentschlossen die 1955 entstandene Komposition von John Cage zu einem Happening erweiterten. Paik baute sich in Moormans Interpretation als "Human Cello" ein. Die Cellistin legte ihr Instrument zur Seite und Paik, der sich während der Musik auf der Bühne auszog, kniete sich zwischen die Knie der Musikerin und spannte, mit beiden Händen auf dem Rücken eine Cellosaite die von Moorman als lebendiges Instrument bespielt wurde. Paik verstand die Aktion als Hommage und Spiegelung von Man Rays berühmter Fotoarbeit "Le violon d'Ingres". Cage sprach sich klar gegen die Interpretation von Moorman/Paik aus, die den musikalischen Wert der Komposition zerstöre.

        Nuclei and Particles. An Introduction to Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics.

      W. A. Benjamin: New York & Amsterdam, 1965. First edition, second printing, of Segrè's major textbook on nuclear physics, the author's own copy heavily annotated by him throughout, with numerous manuscript additions/revisions in pencil and red and blue crayon. Some 145 pages carry annotations ranging from minor typographical corrections to major textual changes. Inserted in a 16-page printed pamphlet listing the corrections made to the first printing (1964), itself heavily annotated by the author. Segrè shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Owen Chamberlain in 1959 for the discovery of the antiproton. "Emilio Segrè was born in Tivoli, Rome, on February 1st, 1905, as the son of Giuseppe Segrè, industrialist, and Amelia Treves. He went to school in Tivoli and Rome, and entered the University of Rome as a student of engineering in 1922. In 1927 he changed over to physics and took his doctor's degree in 1928 under Professor Enrico Fermi, the first one under the latter's sponsorship. "He served in the Italian Army in 1928 and 1929, and entered the University of Rome as assistant to Professor Corbino in 1929. In 1930 he had a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship and worked with Professor Otto Stern at Hamburg, Germany, and Professor Pieter Zeeman at Amsterdam, Holland. In 1932 he returned to Italy and was appointed Assistant Professor at the University of Rome, working continuously with Professor Fermi and others. In 1936 he was appointed Director of the Physics Laboratory at the University of Palermo, where he remained until 1938. "In 1938 Professor Segrè came to Berkeley, California, first as a research associate in the Radiation Laboratory and later as a lecturer in the Physics Department. From 1943 to 1946 he was a group leader in the Los Alamos Laboratory of the Manhattan Project. In 1946 he returned to the University of California at Berkeley as a Professor of Physics. "The work of Professor Segrè has been mainly in atomic and nuclear physics. In the first field he worked in atomic spectroscopy, making contributions to the spectroscopy of forbidden lines and the study of the Zeeman effect. Except for a short interlude on molecular beams, all his work until 1934 was in atomic spectroscopy. In 1934 he started the work in nuclear physics by collaborating with Professor Fermi on neutron research. He participated in the discovery of slow neutrons and in the pioneer neutron work carried on in Rome 1934-1935. Later he was interested in radiochemistry and discovered together with Professor Perrier the element technetium, together with Corson and Mackenzie the element astatine, and together with Kennedy, Seaborg, and Wahl, plutonium-239 and its fission properties. "His other investigations in nuclear physics cover many subjects, e.g., isomerism, spontaneous fission, and lately high-energy physics. Here he, his associates and students have made contributions to the study of the interaction between nucleons and on the related polarization phenomena. In 1955 together with Chamberlain, Wiegand, and Ypsilantis he discovered the antiproton" ( "In his later years Segrè turned himself into a first-class historian of physics; his historical surveys, From X-Rays to Quarks: Modern Physicists and Their Discoveries and From Falling Bodies to Radio Waves: Classical Physicists and Their Discoveries and his biography Enrico Fermi: Physicist are widely used" ( Segrè remained at Berkeley until his death in 1989. Nuclei and Particles was highly successful: OCLC records 47 separate editions/printings. The third printing of the first edition appeared later in the same year as the present second printing. A second edition appeared in 1977, expanded to 986 pages. Large 8vo (254 x 178 mm), original publisher's cloth, the author's own copy, with his ink stamp on front free endpaper.

Introduction by Gregor Piatigorsky. All 90 games annotated with an index of openings.Jacqueline was born in Paris, France, to the famed Rothschild banking family. A nurse taught her to play chess at an early age, when Jacqueline was recovering from a childhood illness. In her 1988 memoir, Jump in the Waves, she wrote that her nurse, Miss Coque, told Jacqueline that: "…with a chess set, it is impossible to be bored." More than a salvation from dullness, the game soon became both a passion and a refuge to Jacqueline. Though she wrote of feeling neglected by her parents and oppressed by a nanny during her childhood, chess offered her an opportunity to forge her own identity independent of her famous family name. In 1937 Jacqueline married Gregor Piatigorsky, a world-renowned cellist. The two immigrated to the United States with their daughter Jephta at the outset of World War II, first settling in Elizabethtown, New York, where their son Joram was later born. Though she had not received any formal chess training, her desire to compete led her to participate in correspondence chess tournaments sponsored by Chess Review. After another series of moves, Jacqueline and her family settled in Los Angeles, California. There, Gregor joined the faculty of the music department at UCLA, while Jacqueline became further immersed in the world of chess. At an auction, she met International Master Herman Steiner, who after learning of her skill, encouraged her to compete in tournaments over the board. He was instrumental in the flourishing of her playing career on the national level, recommending that she be invited to the 1951 U.S. Women’s Chess Championship. After his death in 1955, Jacqueline took over the management of his chess club, the Hollywood Chess Group, and renamed it the Herman Steiner Chess Club in his honor. Jacqueline soon rose to the top of the field of women’s chess and participated in the U.S. Women’s Championships six times in the 1950s and 1960s. Her best result occurred in 1965, when she won second place behind Gisela Gresser. She also defeated her rival, Woman International Master Mona May Karff in such a captivating manner that the New York Timesprinted their game. Jacqueline took part in another historic first for women’s chess in 1957, representing the United States in the inaugural Women’s Chess Olympiad in Emmen, the Netherlands, with teammate Gisela Gresser. Jacqueline played on second board, and the team won a bronze medal in the historic competition. Later that same year, she took her first step in the arena of chess promotion, serving as the chairperson for the U.S. Women’s Chess Championship, which was held in Los Angeles and sponsored by the Herman Steiner Chess Club. During the mid-to-late 1960s, Jacqueline participated in tournaments less frequently. However, over the course of the same decade, she dedicated herself more fully to chess promotion, first co-sponsoring a match between former child prodigy Grandmaster (GM) Samuel Reshevsky and rising star GM Bobby Fischer. Also sponsored by the American Chess Foundation, the match was held in both New York and Los Angeles. The match ended prematurely over a disagreement over the start time for one of the games—Jacqueline had wanted a Sunday game to begin earlier both so that she could attend one of Gregor’s concerts and accommodate the travel needs of out-of-town audience members. Fischer declined to play at the earlier time, and the game was declared a forfeit. Fischer refused to play the remainder of the match, which was a disappointment to Jacqueline and the other tournament organizers. In the wake of this event, she formed a close friendship with Samuel Reshevsky, who became her coach. Despite her early setback, Jacqueline’s interest in chess promotion was not dampened, and she established the Piatigorsky Foundation, which had as its goal to boost chess culture in the United States. At the time, the idea of a philanthropic chess organization was so novel that the Internal Revenue Service denied the group’s first application for not-for-profit status. However, she persevered and the Piatigorsky Foundation became renowned for its support of American chess both on elite and local levels. The Foundation’s first and most famous venture was the organization of the 1963 Piatigorsky Cup tournament. This competition attracted the best American and international players. Jacqueline organized it at the urging of Gregor, who said that in the United States there was, "too much emphasis on physical sports and not enough on the intellectual…A country like ours has an obligation not to be second to anyone." However, it was Jacqueline’s attention to detail and persistence that made the event legendary. The competition was held again in 1966, and its success prompted the Los Angeles Times to name Jacqueline its "Woman of the Year." Piatigorsky Cup Tournaments:The 1963 and 1966 Piatigorsky Cup tournaments rank among the strongest chess competitions ever held on American soil. They are on a short list that includes New York 1924, New York 1927, Dallas 1957, and the 2013 Sinquefield Cup. Held during the Cold War, when tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union were high, the Piatigorsky Cups represented a triumph of diplomacy. Jacqueline and Gregor Piatigorsky faced a daunting task in trying to have Soviet players compete in both events, something that had happened only once before in 1954, when the Soviet Union and United States played a team match in New York. That the Piatigorskys succeeded was a testament to their hard work and persistence, and resulted in Tigran Petrosian competing in both events. This was the first time a reigning World Chess Champion had participated in an individual competition in the United States since Alexander Alekhine played in Pasadena, California, in 1932. Both the 1963 and 1966 tournaments were double round-robin competitions in which all participants played against each other twice. Jacqueline produced an elegant trophy for the events that featured a "love cup" designed by Tiffany & Co. as its centerpiece. The cup is flanked by two Régence-style chess pieces, while the base has plaques with spaces for the names of the winners. The 1963 event, held at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California, included eight competitors from five different nations and offered a prize fund of $10,000. The two Soviet players, Tigran Petrosian and Paul Keres, triumphed over the rest of the field and shared the top prize. The exciting competition attracted a large audience. Bobby Fischer participated in the 1966 tournament, ensuring that the top American talent of the period was represented in the competition. It also meant that the field of ten players in the 1966 event contained one World Chess Champion (Petrosian) as well as two future ones (Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky). Fischer had declined an invitation to the first Cup, still unhappy about his aborted 1961 match against Samuel Reshevsky, which Jacqueline had cosponsored. However, by 1966 the sore feelings had subsided, and his presence and play made this Cup an electrifying event. After a strong start followed by a disastrous performance mid-tournament, Fischer mounted an amazing comeback to tie with the tournament leader, Spassky, in the standings. Their game in the penultimate round attracted a record 900 spectators and served as a preview of the excitement the two would generate six years later in their epic 1972 World Chess Championship match in Reykjavik, Iceland. The two played to a hard-fought draw. Spassky then won his last game against Jan Hein Donner, who was at the bottom of the standings, while Fischer’s game against Petrosian ended in a draw. Spassky achieved a narrow victory over Fischer, winning $5000 from the $20,000 prize fund and a smaller version of the Piatigorsky Cup trophy. The Piatigorsky Cups were not only elite tournaments, but they also broke new ground in making chess competitions more spectator-friendly. The 1963 event followed traditions that had existed for decades, with wall boys moving the pieces on large demonstration boards for the audience. Periodically these same wall boys would manually adjust clocks mounted next to the demonstration boards, giving the audience a rough idea of how much time each player had used. This formula worked reasonably well, but Jacqueline, known for her attention to detail, wanted to improve this system for the second event. She aimed to ensure that everyone that attended the tournament would be able to see the action, even if they were seated in the back of the playing hall. To this end, she developed a projector system that would make the moves of each game clearly visible. By the time of the second tournament, held in Santa Monica, California, in 1966, she had designed and perfected the setup. This innovation, as well as her creation of electric wall-mounted clocks that kept precise measurements of each player’s time, turned out to be both novel and necessary in the second competition. The second Piatigorsky Cup consistently drew crowds of 600 to 700, peaking at 900 spectators near the end of the event.Condition:Both copies inscribed to Michael Jeffreys by Piatigorsky on front end papers. First Piatigorsky Cup with group picture of Jacqueline, child students and Jeffreys tipped to half title. Jefferys business card laid in.

Oblong octavo, first edition, pp. 78, full black cloth boards with white lettering on spine and upper board, gravures, text by Agee. Parr & Badger, V.1, pp. 252-53: "Levitt's street pictures of New York children in underprivileged areas . exemplify the shift from New Deal social documentation to a more personal and elliptical way of looking at life. . Levitt's photographs are beautiful -- major, underrated works." Roth, 101 Books, pp. 178-79: Agee's "photo-by-photo interpretations can be crushingly heavy-handed. Happily, Levitt's work easily escapes the text's abrasive grip, its buoyancy and grit intact." Also see Hasselblad, Open Book, pp. 214-15. Condition of this book: Near fine with jacket faintly worn at edges with tiny spots of foxing at rear flap; boards a bit sunned at edges.

        Collection of Letters, Photographs, and Poetry from 18-Year-Old Marc Bolan

      1965 - An archive of items from the earliest part of the career of legendary British rock star Marc Bolan of T-Rex fame when he was only 18 and about to release his debut single on Decca Records in 1965. Included are two copies of the typed lyrics for his first single, "The Wizard"; two Autograph Notes Signed; five pages of typed poems stapled into a booklet; six 8" x 10" photographs taken by Fiona Adam, two of which show Bolan during his first recording session with producer Jim Economides; and a program for a Tyrannosaurus Rex tour two years later. All fine except for a small tear on the last page of the stapled poetry, a tack hole in one photo, and a couple annotations in red ink in the tour book.The collection comes from the archive of London *Sunday Times* music critic Derek Jewell, who while writing an article about Economides, was made aware of a young musician he was working with. A publicity letter dated 10 September 1965 sent to Jewell mentions Bolan and explains, "You will be hearing more from me concerning this boy, whom I feel has an appeal beyond the normal pop market." Quite an understatement.The first ANS is written on a white sheet that reads in full: "Derek thought you might like to see some poems. hope you like them. see you soon, sincerely Marc Bolan. P.S. words to the wizard on green paper. thanks." The second ANS is on a blue sheet: "Derek hope you like the pictures. first two are of the recording session. see you soon [arrow pointing down] Marc Bolan." Both signatures use the umlaut over the "o" in his last name, which was a new pseudonym created just a month before (and that some speculate is a contraction of the words "Bob Dylan"). As stated, the letters are accompanied by two green sheets with the typed lyrics to "The Wizard" (here titled "The Wizard in the Wood"), along with a stapled packet of five sheets of poetry titled *The Wizard, The Owl and The Big Black Cat*. Both the lyrics and poems have been trimmed to the same size, likely by Bolan, who has signed both in type: "Marc Bolan. '65."Two of the six photographs show Bolan in the recording session, one up close with him concentrating on something out of sight, and the other in discussion with producers and engineers. The remaining images include two of Bolan sitting on a leopard rug by a miniature roulette wheel and holding a black cat, along with two outside shots of him dressed in a black pea coat. Bolan looks surprisingly young in each with uncharacteristically short hair. Accompanying the letters and photographs is a press release for Bolan's first single with his name spelled "Mark Bowland" and corrected in black marker; a program for the Tyrannosaurus Rex tour "The Lion and the Unicorn" in the Oak Forests of Faun in 1969; as well as a file of press releases about Economides, along with the typescript of a profile of Bolan written by Jewell.An amazing archive capturing Marc Bolan at the start of his career as a solo performer, shortly before the creation of T-Rex made him a legend.
