N.p. [Washington, D.C.], n.d. [ca. 1965?] - 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's 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 unumerated 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.

Border Press, Fort Smith, 1965. Quarto (29cm); mimeographed sheets, printed recto and verso and stapled into illustrated wrappers; [65]pp. Light wear and toning to wrapper extremities, creasing along the lower front wrapper, with faint foxing to top edge of text and beginning oxidation to staples; Very Good+. Scarce second issue of this short-lived poetry magazine published by Wayne Philpot's Border Press, containing the first appearance of Bukowski's poem "I Keep Wanting To Cry About Everything But I Can't Get Started". He also contributed the cover illustration titled "Sunday Afternoon in Heaven". Philpot was quite taken with the quality of Bukowski's drawings, and in addition to using one to grace the first two covers of Border, he asked for several more with the intention of producing a limited edition book featuring his artwork. The projected title was Atomic Scribblings from a Maniac Age, and while it was promoted and advertised, Philpot ultimately vanished with the drawings without a word. Uncommon. Dorbin C267.

KING, Martin Luther, Jr
New York: American Committee on Africa. [1965]. Large printing plate. Measuring 12.25" 16.25". Zinc[?] printing plate mounted on hardwood (probably cherry). A little rubbing else very near fine; eyelet and wire on verso presumably used to hang on a wall. Printing plate for an apparently lost poster. The rally at Hunter College featured Dr. King, Leon Bibb, Miriam Makeba, H. E. Achkar Marof (Guinea's Representative to the U.N. and head of the U.N. Committee on Apartheid), Pete Seeger, and an unnamed South African exile. The goal of the event was to raise money for the legal defense of political prisoners and support the families of South African men in jail, which at the time would have included Nelson Mandela. While a leaflet for the event exists with similar (but not identical) text but with different layout, we could find no evidence of examples of this larger poster or broadside. A unique artifact showing the intersection of the Civil Rights and Anti-Apartheid Movements. .

Fu, Tu
Toppan Printing Co, Tokyo. (24)pp. This set includes two versions of the ancient Chinese poet Tu Fu's verse "The Eight Immortals of the Wine Cup": a miniature book measuring 1 3/8 inches (35mm.) square, and an ultra-microminiature measuring a mere 3.75mm square. In each, the text is presented in English and Japanese. The ultra-microminiature is contained within a magnifying case attached to a keychain. The case's metal cover is printed with "Micro Book" in white and gold on a black background, and has a distinctly mid-century aesthetic. According to the accompanying bilingual brochure, which includes instructions for opening the case, "This key-holder contains the smallest book ever published in the world. the fruit of our outstanding technical know-how involved in plate-making and printing." The thickness of each letter is approximately equivalent to one-fifth of a human hair. Toppan produced its first Micro Books in 1965 for the New York World's Fair, and the company has continued to break records for the world's smallest book ever since. Housed in a silver plastic clamshell box, lined with satin and red velvet. Only one institutional copy recorded, in a different, less elaborate presentation. Very fine. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
