        An original production cel from the MGM animation Dr Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

      MGM,, 1966. You're a foul one, Mr. Grinch. You're a nasty wasty skunk. Your heart is full of unwashed socks, your soul is full of gunk... MR. GRINCH! Original hand painted production 2 cel setup: the image of the Grinch measuring 135 x 195 mm. Production marks and sequence numbers to lower edge of cel (below mount). On a print background for presentation purposes, with authentication seal and estate plate signature of Chuck Jones to front of cel. Mounted, glazed and framed (overall size 390 x 440 mm). In excellent condition. Originally broadcast by CBS on 18 December 1966, How the Grinch Stole Christmas became a perennial feature of US festive season television - the position occupied by Raymond Briggs's The Snowman for British audiences. Superbly voiced by Boris Karloff and with ear-catching music by Albert Hague and Eugene Poddany, it was Chuck Jones's inspired direction that turned Seuss's updating of the Scrooge story into a small screen classic. The scene, featured around the 18:30 mark in the film, depicts the Grinch in his Santa costume, stealing the Who's ice cubes.

        The Romanovs: Three Centuries Of An Ill-Fated Dynasty

      London - The Bodley Head 1966 - A first edition of this history of the Romanovs, by the child of aRussian aristocratic emigree Martha Edith Almedingen, from the collection of Count Sangorski. The edition includes a frontispieceof arare photograph of Vassily Island, showing the winter palace, as well as the tercentenary stamps issued in 1913 to celebrate the Romanov dynasty. On her mother's side, Almedingen was descended from the aristocratic Poltoratsky family; her maternal grandfather was Serge Poltoratzky, the literary scholar and bibliophile who ended his days in exile, shuttling between France and England. His second wife Ellen Sarah Southee, 16 years his junior, and the daughter of an English gentleman farmer, grew up in Kent. She was related to poet Robert Southey. Their children had English governesses and grew up speaking English. His daughter Olga, the novelist's mother, grew up in Kent but was fascinated by her father's native Russia. Through this family connection the author possessed a unique connection to an interest in her subject matter. Count R. L Sangorski was a prominent art collector famous for contributing to the John Marriot collection of Chinese Art. These works are listed on a receipt for binding issued to him in the 1980s, found with the sale of his collection. Bound in the 1980's after Asprey's acquisition of Zaehnsdorf bindery (1983), who merged it with their previous acquisition of Sangorski and Sutcliff. This binding is likely to be a Zaehnsdorf binding, under the name of Asprey. Condition: In a full morocco Asprey binding. Externally excellent, with almost no perceptible wear. Internally, clean and bright throughout, and firmly bound. Overall: FINE [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Martin Luther King Hand Corrected Speech.

      Draft typescript, four pages with extensive handwritten additions and edits all in Martin Luther King's hand. This is the outline for a speech delivered to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference's staff retreat, Frogmore, South Carolina, November 14, 1966. An exceptionally rare annotated King manuscript, with fascinating insights about the history of the Civil Rights campaign and King's thoughts about the challenges from the Black Power movement ("It's a slogan not a program'') and the growing white backlash ("It is nothing new''). King begins, "Introduction: From whence we have come; where we are now; where do we go from here.'' King describes the legal and psychological turning points as well as the dramatic progress Negroes had made in segregation and voting rights. Surveying the 14 years from the Montgomery Bus Boycott to the present, King writes in blue ballpoint: "The greatest victory of this period was what it did to the psyc[h]e of the Negro. New dignity and destiny. We came out of this period only slightly integrated in the external society, but powerfully integrated within. We armed ourselves with dignity and self-respect, and our adversaries tasted the gall of defeat.'' King notes that the victories in the South did nothing "to improve the lot of the millions of Negroes in the teeming ghettoes of the North." The movement dented the idea of white supremacy but "did not defeat the monster of racism.'' In another striking handwritten addition King states, "No one surveying the moral landscape of a nation can overlook the hideous and pathetic wreckage of commitment twisted and turned to a thousand shapes under the stress of prejudice and irrationality." King crosses out a line dealing with the cause and effect from the Civil Rights "Black Power" movement and the "white backlash" caused by it, but adds that people "are saying that the civil rights movement is either died [sic] or has lost ground." King points out, in the left margin with powerful visual imagery, that the cause of racial equality--or any great social revolution--"is like curving around a mountain when you are approaching a city. Often it feels as though you are moving backwards, and you lose sight of your goal; but in fact you are moving ahead, and soon you will see the city again, closer by.'' One can't read that without thinking of King's haunting final speech delivered at Bishop Charles Mason Temple, Memphis, Tenn., April 3, 1968: 'I've been to the mountaintop...And he's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land.' In remarkable fashion, this speech seems to establish King's structure for the rest of his work in the Civil Rights movement, as the question first posed in this speech "Where Do We Go From Here?" was the title for a keynote speech King delivered on Aug. 16, 1967, at the Eleventh Annual Convention of The Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, and was further published in a book King published that same year, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community? expanding upon the final segment of the "whence we have come; where we are now; where do we go from here" framework introduced in this outline. Small paper loss at one corner (not affecting text). Matted and framed.

        Every Building on the Sunset Strip

      Los Angeles: Ed Ruscha, 1966. First edition. First Printing of 1,000 copies with the extra two inch flap at the end. A very good copy in white printed wraps with some darkening to the spine; foil covered slipcase is lightly worn with a few small splits, else very good. Ed Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999, B4. Roth pages 182-185. Open Book pages 198-201. Parr and Badger Volume Two, 142-3. Architect Peter Hoyt's copy with his ownership signature on the inside. Peter Hoyt was part of the Learning from Las Vegas team that studied under Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown and eventually produced one of the most important and controversial books of architectural theory published in the twentieth century. When the team went to Las Vegas in the fall of 1968, they flew first to Los Angeles and met with Ed Ruscha along with many other LA notables by way of Esther McCoy. The Venturis felt that the way Ruscha was looking at the LA landscape would be helpful in their understanding of the Las Vegas strip. They even hired a helicopter to photograph Las Vegas from the air, looking at patterns of use in much the same manner as Ruscha approached photographing Los Angeles. Ruscha's books on gas stations, parking lots and other spaces were very important influences on the visual aspects of the Learning From Las Vegas study.

        Magick Lantern Cycle (Original film program for the Spring Equinox 1966 screening)

      New York: Film-makers' Cinematheque, 1966. Original film program for the 1966 screening of six Kenneth Anger films, being shown on the Spring Equinox (March 21, 1966). Screened at Jonas Mekas's Film-maker's Cinematheque coopperative theater, then located at 125 West 41st Street in New York. Films at the screening included "Kustom Kar Kommandos," "Fireworks," "Scorpio Rising," "Eaux d'artifice," and a prelude entitled "Anger Aquarian Arcanum." Also included was the premiere screening of the "Sacred Mushroom Edition" of his film "Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome," which condensed an earlier three-screen edition of the film into a single, superimposed image. In hip late-1960s fashion, the program includes specific instructions for "psychedelic researchers" who wished to view the film as it was fully intended: "in that Holy Trance called High." Anger, one of the most significant filmmakers to come out of the American avant-garde in the mid-1960s, was born in Southern California and began making films when he was only ten years old. His work often prominently featured homosexual themes, and his career-long fascination with the mystical and magical is prominently on display in the "Magick Lantern Cycle" as well. The Film-maker's Cinemantheque, co-founded by Jonas Mekas in 1962, would offer a home, albeit with an oft-shifting location, to avant-garde New York filmmakers, and would later grow to become the Anthology Film Archives, one of the world's largest and most important repositories of avant-garde film. Black, white, and day-glo orange card wrappers, printed in black and white on purple, blue, red, and white stock throughout. 8.5 x 11 inches (22 x 28 cm), nine pages, saddle-stitched with plastic spine protector as issued. Very Good plus, with a reading crease to the front wrapper, a single unobtrusive ink notation of an arrow on one of the pages.

        THE GALILEE HITCH-HIKER - INSCRIBED TO SHIG MURAO

      San Francisco: Cranium Press, 1966. Second Edition. One of 700 copies. Slim octavo (21.5cm); letterpress printed sheets, hand-sewn into red-orange wrappers illustrated by Kenn Davis; [16]pp; illus. Inscribed by the author on the copyright page in the month of publication: "This copy is for Shig. Richard Brautigan / December 16, 1966." Fine. Brautigan's first regularly published book, inscribed to Shigeyoshi "Shig" Murao, who managed the City Lights Bookstore for more than 25 years. Murao was at the very center of the San Francisco Beat scene, who knew Brautigan since he was an awkward 20-something newcomer to the Bay Area. As the years passed and Brautigan's output began to grow, he would frequently visit Murao at City Lights, checking to see if any of his poetry pamphlets had sold. Though Brautigan was grew more contentious as his fame grew, their's was a friendship that lasted decades. A distinguished copy. Barber A7.

        Intelligent Life in the Universe

      San Francisco, London, Amsterdam: Holden-Day, Inc.,, 1966. Being a translation, extension, and revision of I. S. Shklovskii's [Russian title]. Authorized translation by Paula Fern. Square octavo. Original cloth. With the dust jacket. Illustrations in the text throughout. An excellent copy with small chips to the ends and corners. First edition, first printing, of Carl Sagan's first book, concerning the topic that consumed him throughout his life. This wonderful association copy comes from the library, with ownership stamp to the front free endpaper, of Dr Homer E. Newell Jr. (1915-1983). Newell was a mathematics professor and author who became a powerful US government science administrator, rising eventually to the third in command of NASA. In the early 1960s he controlled or influenced virtually all non-military unmanned space missions for the free world. He played a significant role in the negotiations which led to the creation of NASA, chairing a committee of rocket and satellite experimenters that drafted a consensus plan for a national space establishment which was presented to Eisenhower's science advisor, and advising the Senate preparedness investigating subcommittee... When the legislation establishing NASA was passed in 1958, Newell was given credit by his peers, including Van Allen, who called him "The Spark Plug" for a strong space science element in NASA. Newell joined NASA in 1958 (the year this book was published), and was successively assistant director for space sciences (1958-1960), deputy director of space flight programs (1960-1961), director of space sciences (1961-1963), associate administrator for space science and applications (1963-1967) and finally associate administrator of NASA, the third ranking position, from 1967 until 1974 (and as such overseeing the Moon Landing.) (1967-1974). In 1965, Newell was awarded the President's Award for Distinguished Federal Civilian Service. He was also commemorated in the Goddard Space Flight Center's Homer E. Newell memorial library, and asteroid 2086 Newell.

        The Romanovs: Three Centuries Of An Ill-Fated Dynasty

      London - The Bodley Head, 1966 Book. Fine. Hardcover. First edition.. A first edition of this history of the Romanovs, by the child of aRussian aristocratic emigree Martha Edith Almedingen, from the collection of Count Sangorski. The edition includes a frontispieceof arare photograph of Vassily Island, showing the winter palace, as well as the tercentenary stamps issued in 1913 to celebrate the Romanov dynasty. On her mother's side, Almedingen was descended from the aristocratic Poltoratsky family; her maternal grandfather was Serge Poltoratzky, the literary scholar and bibliophile who ended his days in exile, shuttling between France and England. His second wife Ellen Sarah Southee, 16 years his junior, and the daughter of an English gentleman farmer, grew up in Kent. She was related to poet Robert Southey. Their children had English governesses and grew up speaking English. His daughter Olga, the novelist's mother, grew up in Kent but was fascinated by her father's native Russia. Through this family connection the author possessed a unique connection to an interest in her subject matter. Count R. L Sangorski was a prominent art collector famous for contributing to the John Marriot collection of Chinese Art. These works are listed on a receipt for binding issued to him in the 1980s, found with the sale of his collection. Bound in the 1980's after Asprey's acquisition of Zaehnsdorf bindery (1983), who merged it with their previous acquisition of Sangorski and Sutcliff. This binding is likely to be a Zaehnsdorf binding, under the name of Asprey. Condition: In a full morocco Asprey binding. Externally excellent, with almost no perceptible wear. Internally, clean and bright throughout, and firmly bound. Overall: FINE.
