        Le Néon de la Vie

      Paris: Alexandre Loewy, 1966. Copy #33 of 40 copies, signed by the artist. Entire edition 50 copies: Ten special copies in various states, 40 as this. Large quarto. 10 1/2 x 14 1/4”. Wholly engraved in color. Thirteen loose sheets (26” x 20”) each folded once into eight pages, printed on one side only, for a total of 44 wood engraved pages (title page and first page of text on a single sheet, plus blank end sheet). The work is meant to be viewed in double page spreads. Burlap chemise and open wooden slipcase burnished in square designs around the edges. A highly experimental book with each colorful two-page spread bearing text and designs arranged in a non-linear shape and order. Strachan (p233) writing when Le Néon de la Vie had just been published calls it an example of a livre manuscript. “Louttre has his own very personal language of intentional rusticity. The designs are cut intaglio, inked and printed in black and tones of orange and red, and result in forty pages which are both witty and a feast to the eye." “Loutre B." (sculptor, engraver, ceramicist, mosaic artist) is the son of the designer and painter Roger Bissičre (1886-1964). He used his nickname "Loutre B." (Otter ) as an artist name to emerge from the shadow of his father. He developed a special printing technique , in which he combined woodcut and copperplate engraving, to producing a three-dimensional effect. He began to work in engraving in 1960, studying with Marcel Fiorini and experimenting with combining copper plates with woodblocks for a sculptural effect. The following year Louttre won the second Biennale de Paris. He also experimented with monumental sculpture in cement and wood including those for public buildings; in addition he created tapestries and stained glass windows. He participated in numerous private and collective exhibitions throughout Europe. “Louttre B” also worked in other art forms, from sand painting to stained glass, sculpture, tapestry design and book illustration. His work was included in exhibitions all over the world and is held in several important collections, including the Musée des Beaux-arts in Bordeaux. “Louttre B” worked with experimental techniques in several books entirely engraved, of which Le Néon de la vie, 1966 is the first.; Le Tarot des Familles, 1976 ; Les Douze Émois, 1980 ; Les Trčs Riches Heures, 1985 ; Pauvre Gaspard de Verlaine, 1995 ; Le Bogjo's Bohmp by Walter Léwino, 1995). The Parisian bookseller Alexandre Loewy (1906- 1995) ) published only a few livres des artistes, these by contemporary artists in order to provide a showcase for their experimental work. These include Les Roses by Rainer Maria Rilke, with etchings by Imre Reiner (1959) Vigies by Tristan Tzara with aquatints by Camille Bryen, 1962 Le néon de la vie, text and etchings by M.-A. Bissičre, 1966 Aurélia. By Gerard de Nerval, with etchings by Imred Reiner, 1970 Ref: Strachan, W.J. The Artist and the book in France. 1969. illus plate 117, catalog p.334

        Holograph Notebook

      c.1966-1969. Small octavo (194 × 128 mm), pp. 53. English manuscript notebook written in black and blue ink, and pencil, by a single neat and legible hand. Spiral-bound notebook with original buff card covers and ruled pages. Covers marked, front cover partially split at spine, contents mildly toned with a few marks. In very good condition. A manuscript book of notes, reminders and rough sums, with around two-thirds of the notebook filled with lists of books and their prices, with some items ticked off. It includes a lengthy section on Joe Brainard, one of his close friends, following a visit on 2 June 1966: "A white romantic T-short on a bed of flowers, and an unromantic pair of jockey shorts. One thinks of da Vinci paintings dipped in plaster, perfecting the way he painted folds. But Brainard is less abstract, and would be inclined to paint the rags themselves. He paints a lot in opaque watercolour, but a good deal of the time something else gets in: what cataloguers call mixed media", (cf. Pettet, p. 73). Schuyler and Brainard were part of a circle that included Frank O'Hara, Kenneth Koch, Alex Katz, Edwin Denby, Larry Rivers, Fairfield Porter, Jane Freilicher, Virgil Thomson, and John Ashbery.

      (RUSCHA, EDWARD). Ruscha, Edward. EVERY BUILDING ON THE SUNSET STRIP. Los Angeles. 1966 (1970).: Self-Published, Second Printing 1/5000. 8vo. Leporello Wrappers in Slipcase. Artist's Book. Near Fine./No Jacket - As Issued.. One continuous accordion-fold page composed of glued paper segments extending to 296 ½" in length housed in a white paper and silver Mylar-over-cardboard slipcase. "Every Building on the Sunset Strip" is Ed Ruscha's innovative 1966 photographic study that pictures sequentially each architectural facade on both the North and South sides of the fabled Sunset Strip from 8101 - the still extant Jaguar dealership - to 9156 - the late, great Schwab's Pharmacy. Pandora's Box lives! A bright, most handsome example of the 1970 second printing (entry B4 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999", and whose 1966 edition is cited on pages 142-143 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 198-199 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and pages 182-185 of "The Book of 101 Books") limited to five thousand unnumbered copies showing some mild soiling and a slight soft crease along the spine. The slipcase's silver mylar overlay is shiny but lightly scuffed, there is some trivial soiling along the top and bottom edges, and there are separating tears to the white paper covering at each of the corners of the joints at the opening. The publisher's exceedingly fragile and uncommon unprinted white paper wraparound band issued only with the second edition is laid in. Still in all, this is a nice example of a stellar title that looks better in hand than it describes, that has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        Autograph graphic musical manuscript from the composer's La Passion selon Sade, signed "Syl B" to the distinguished music administrator and author Renée Levine [Packer]

      Apparently unique. The present "variation," Chioma di Berenice, is not in the edition of La Passion selon Sade published by Ricordi in 1966. Bussotti composed La passion selon Sade, "a mystère de chambre" to his own libretto after Louise Labé, in 1965-66. According to Grove Music Online, the work received its first partial performance at the Teatro Biondo in Palermo on September 5, 1965; and its first complete performance in Stockholm in 1969. However, Bussotti had already conducted excerpts from the work at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo on March 5, 1965, and in New York City shortly thereafter. Of the Buffalo performance, Levine writes: "Excerpts from Bussotti's chamber opera La Passion selon Sade (1965) provided another unsettling experience. Employing an ensemble with electronics, percussion, piano, and strings, the composer conducted this semi-staged version from a settee placed with its back to the audience. Soprano Sylvia Brigham-Dimiziani, in black cape and hood, had the principal role, using speech, noises, grunts, and melodic episodes in a spectacular fashion. Jay Humeston, cellist, and Michael Sahl, pianist, were directed to flagellate the strings of their instruments with small whips that Bussotti had brought with him from abroad. Others in the ensemble were led on and off stage in ritual-like behavoir." This Life of Sounds: Evenings for New Music in Buffalo, 43-44. Bussotti was an Italian avant-garde composer, artist, writer, and film director. He is well-known for his unusually notated music, which often creates certain interpretive challenges. "Born in France, raised in New York and Mexico City, Levine Packer worked with Lukas Foss and was co-director with Morton Feldman of the renowned contemporary music group in Buffalo, New York, and a director of the Contemporary Music Festival at the California Institute of the Arts. She was Director of the Inter-Arts program at the National Endowment for the Arts, the producer of Steve Reich and Beryl Korot's multimedia opera The Cave, and a dean at the Maryland Institute College of Art." Oxford University Press online.. 1 page, ca. 202 x 250 mm. Dated Buffalo 1965. In colored pencils and black ink, with elements of graphic notation. Inscribed "da 'La Passion selon Sade' variation, 'chioma di Berenice' for Renée Levine (a colori)..." to lower margin. Slightly worn; occasional show-through to blank verso.

      [JAPANESE PAPER] KYOKARAKAMI. Kara nagatezuri mokuhan monyo [Kara-cho Designs for Hand-Printed Woodcut Pattern Paper.] Edited by Ansou Hisao. Preface by Osaragi Jiro. Two volumes. Contents includes: 2 ff. prefaces, 102 sheets of decorated papers, printed in colors from the original woodblocks on Kurotani paper, sheet size 390 x 510 mm. Text fascicles loosely inserted in each volume (each 16 pp., with collotype illustrations; small 4to., self-wraps., secured with cord, as issued). Large folio, loose in original publisher's purple silk-covered wooden cases. Tokyo: [Bijutsu Shuppan-sha], 1966-1967. |~||~||~||~||~||~| One of 120 copies. A special publication reproducing kyokarakami (hand-printed woodcut pattern paper) from actual woodblock specimens from the firm Karacho, the oldest surviving studio producing these papers by hand. Founded in Kyoto in the early seventeenth century, Karacho filled the tremendous demand during the beginning of the Edo period to decorate paper doors (fusama), walls, ceilings and folding screens, in temples, imperial villas (as at Katsura) and grand private residences. By the 1830s, thirteen studios were in operation in Kyoto; today, all of them, except Karacho, have disappeared. Karacho preserves more than 600 original woodblocks in its inventory. Of these, some 250 were made in the Edo period after 1789, following a disastrous fire in Kyoto; 200 others date from the Meiji period after 1867, and 150 from the Taisho period, after 1912. This substantial collection presents a selection of the best designs. The sheets are printed on Kuratani (luxurious imported paper) manufactured especially for this publication, and the designs are realized using rare natural materials, such as powdered oyster shell and mica, gold, lacquer, and gouaches derived from natural plants. On account of the fragile nature of the original blocks, many of which have since been withdrawn from use, this publication will never be reprinted. This set of papers, made by Karacho, represent one of the most important source books of Japanese classical design in Kyoto. Some wear to the cases, the papers remain in fine fresh condition. A complete list describing each paper design is available upon request.

        The Fixer [Inscribed Association Copy]

      NY: FSG. (1966). His fourth novel, which deals with anti-Semitism in Tsarist Russia, and which won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Inscribed by Malamud: "For Katharine and Mike/ old good friends/ Bern." The authors Michael Seide and Katharine Shattuck were long-time friends of Malamud's, with Malamud having gone so far as to call Seide an "influence" on him. It was Seide who indirectly found Malamud his agent: Seide was Henry Volkening's (of Russell and Volkening) first client, but when Seide recommended Volkening to Malamud and Malamud called the agency, Diarmuid Russell answered the phone, and Russell would remain Malamud's agent throughout his career. Seide wrote The Common Thread in 1944, and then didn't publish another book for nearly forty years. When his book The Common Wilderness was finally released, Malamud was there to blurb it, as "an original, energetic, language wrought, imaginative work by a daring writer." A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with mild fading to the spine lettering and a bit of wear to the crown. An excellent association copy of a multiple award-winning novel. First Edition. Hardcover.
