        EVERY BUILDING ON THE SUNSET STRIP - SIGNED BY EDWARD RUSCHA

      (RUSCHA, EDWARD). Ruscha, Edward. EVERY BUILDING ON THE SUNSET STRIP - SIGNED BY EDWARD RUSCHA. Signed by the Artist. 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 white, 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 additionally BOLDLY SIGNED "Edward Ruscha" in black ink across the top of the slipcase showing a thin margin of adhesive transfer along the front and back of the covers at the spine as is typical of this printing. The slipcase's silver mylar overlay is shiny and bright, but showing some light soiling along the top as well as short separations to the white paper covering at 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. All in all, this is a lovely example of a stellar title.

        Comédies et actes divers

      Les éditions de minuit 1966 - - Les éditions de minuit, Paris 1966, 11,5x18cm, broché. - Edition originale sur papier courant. Précieux envoi autographe daté de Janvier 1966 et signé de Samuel Beckett à son ami le peintre Geer (Van Velde) et à sa femme Lise. Légères piqûres sans gravité sur le premier plat. « Que dire de ces plans qui glissent, ces contours qui vibrent, ces corps comme taillés dans la brume, ces équilibres qu'un rien doit rompre, qui se rompent, et se reforment à mesure qu'on regarde ? Comment parler de ces couleurs qui respirent, qui halètent ? de cette stase grouillante ? de ce monde sans poids, sans force, sans ombre ? Ici tout bouge, nage, fuit, revient, se défait, se refait. Tout cesse, sans cesse. On dirait l'insurrection des molécules, l'intérieur d'une pierre un millième de seconde avant qu'elle ne se désagrège. C'est ça la littérature. » (La Peinture des van Velde ou Le monde et le pantalon, in Cahiers d'Art n°11-12, Paris 1945) Beckett ne parle pas ici, malgré les apparences, de son œuvre littéraire mais de la peinture de Geer Van Velde, ajoutant quelques lignes plus loin : « [Bram] Van Velde peint l'étendue. G[eer] Van Velde peint la succession. » Cet éloge, publié à l'occasion de la double exposition des Van Velde, Geer chez Maeght et Bram à la galerie Mai, est le premier texte d'importance sur ces peintres alors à peu près inconnus du public : « On ne fait que commencer à déconner sur les frères Van Velde. J'ouvre la série. C'est un honneur. » Il est aussi le premier texte critique écrit directement en français par un jeune écrivain irlandais qui n'a encore jamais publié en France. Ainsi, le premier et plus important écrit sur l'art de Beckett, composé à l'aube de sa carrière littéraire, instaure, dès l'origine, une relation fondamentale entre son œuvre en gestation et la peinture de ses amis : « Aussi a-t-on souvent lu ce texte en creux, ou en miroir, comme une des rares désignations de la poétique (à venir) de Beckett par lui-même, une sorte de programme anamorphique d'écriture » (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique par Pierre Vilar) Véritable déclaration d'intention du dramaturge, ce texte fondamental - dont Beckett confesse dès l'introduction la valeur introspective : « avec les mots on ne fait que se raconter » - inaugure la période créatrice la plus fructueuse de l'écrivain. En effet, à l'instar d'Apollinaire et de Cendrars, Beckett puise dans les problématiques artistiques de ses contemporains le ferment de son écriture à venir par « la mise en cause la plus profonde des présupposés narratifs, figuratifs ou poétiques. » (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur) L'influence majeure de la peinture moderne sur la structure - ou déstructuration - narrative du théâtre et des romans de Beckett sera révélée et analysée par de nombreux penseurs, dont Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva ou Maurice Blanchot. C'est justement à partir de la peinture des Van Velde, de Geer, puis de Bram, que Beckett formalise cette volonté de traduire la question picturale en dramaturgie. Ainsi refuse-t-il les décors de Nicolas de Staël pour En attendant Godot car : « Il faut que le décor sorte du texte, sans y ajouter. Quant à la commodité visuelle du spectateur, je la mets là où tu penses. Crois-tu vraiment qu'on puisse écouter devant un décor de Bram, ou voir autre chose que lui ? » (Lettre à Georges Duthuit, 1952). Lorsqu'il rencontre Geer en 1937, « Beckett traverse une crise existentielle majeure, il vient de remodeler son premier roman Murphy, refusé par un grand nombre d'éditeurs, il sombre dans l'alcoolisme, quitte l'Irlande et s'installe définitivement à Paris » (Le Pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). Il revient d'un long voyage artistique en Allemagne où il s'est imprégné d'œuvres classiques et d'art contemporain - c'est lors de ce voyage qu'il découvre les Deux hommes contemplant la lune de Caspar David Friedrich, à l'origine de En attendant Godot. L'art est alors au cœur de sa réflexion créatrice [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Drawings

      New York: Walker and Company. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover, slipcase. Very Good/Very Good. FIRST EDITION, ONE OF ONLY 100 COPIES SIGNED BY DE KOONING. A beautiful copy in the rare original slipcase. "This volume reproduces, in exact size, 24 charcoal drawings executed by de Kooning in 1966. Clarke & Way, Inc. and Crafton Graphics Company, Inc., New York, have produced the book which was designed by Julio Silva of Paris." As de Kooning notes on the final page: "I am the source of a rumor concerning these drawings, and it is true that I made them with closed eyes... Also, the pad I used was always held horizontally. The drawings often started by the feet… but more of ten by the center of the body, in the middle of the page.

 "There is nothing special about this, I admit, and I am certain that many artists have found similar ways… but I found that closing the eyes was very helpful to me... Many drawings were made this way, and it was suggested to make this book. I was very pleased with the idea and these 24 drawings were selected."

 New York: Walker and Company, 1967. Quarto, original printed boards, original dust jacket; original slipcase. Extremely faint evidence of pencil inscription on front free endpaper; a small spot of soiling to cloth edge. Dust jacket price-clipped (as usual) and with mild toning to spine. A very clean, well-preserved copy in the rare slipcase.

        Yarns for Davy Jones

      Privately printed for the author, np 1966 - First edition. Frontispiece & 16 full page illustrations. [viii], 146 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. AN EARLY REPORT ON KIWI HERMIT TOM NEALE. Inscribed to Percy Chubb by the author, Parkinson has also signed his name to the title-page. The TLS dated, March 29, 1970 concerns sailing matters relating to his crossing of the Atlantic.Parkinson spent a good deal of his life at sea and relates numerous anecdotes here, including some from serving in the Pacific in the closing stages of World War Two and another witnessing the atomic tests at Bikini Atoll. Of special interest is the chapter devoted to Surrarow Island, which came as part of a cruise he made with his wife and others in 1963. The schooner Westward was completing a circumnavigation and they joined her at Tahiti before proceding to Bora Bora and then laying a course for American Samoa.Suvarov (Suwarrow) Island was discovered in 1814 by Mikhail Lazarev. It is half a mile long and 400 yards wide with one of the finest lagoons in the South Pacific. Parkinson spent three days there in 1963 with his wife and Mr and Mrs Drayton Cochrane who were circumnavigating in stages on the Westward.Parkinson and his crew were surprised to find the island was inhabited. Unknown to all but very few people, Tom Neale, the New Zealand sailor and survivalist, had been living on the island since 1960 and "it was not surprising he talked almost incessantly, chiefly about his experiences on Suvarov." It transpired that this was his second stint on the island, having previously lived there 1952-4. In between visits "he married a Tongan woman and had two children but" Parkinson states, "his return to Suvarov without her is not unusual by South Pacific standards." He remained on the island until 1964. Parkinson's description of their encounter with Neale is one of great admiration and fascination and accordingly filled with details of his life and notes the people who'd visited him over the years.This is one of the earliest reports on Neale, published in the same year as Neale's autobiography. Royalties from Neale's book funded his final and longest stay on Suwarrow (1967-77) and only illness forced him to leave. Neale was born in Wellington, in 1902 though moved to Greymouth and then Timaru as a child. He joined the New Zealand navy as an apprentice engineer though bought himself out after four years and commenced his peripatetic life.Rare. OCLC locates just five copies. Fine.

        "Brakhage" in Film-Makers' Cinematheque Monograph Series No. 2, with typed note signed from Jane Brakhage

      New York: Film-Makers' Cinematheque, 1966. First Edition. First Edition. The second issue of a monograph series published by Jonas Mekas' Film-makers' Cinematheque. With a brief typed note signed by Stan Brakhage's wife, Jane Brakhage, to a Jim Adams in San Francisco, letting Mr. Adams know where a copy of the journal "Metaphors" can be ordered. Also included in a tall side-stitched two-color 1971 catalog listing Brakhage films for sale. A series previously unknown to us and apparently short-lived. The entirety of this issue is devoted a story called "Brakhage" by Dan Clark, an experimental fiction in which an invented "critic" analyzes 28 actual Brakhage films (beginning with Interim in 1952 and ending with "The Art of Vision" in 1964) in exhaustive detail, revealing via minutae both the character of Brakhage and the critic. While the author emphasizes in his introduction that the entire effort is "imaginary," it is in fact one of the earliest and most thorough analyses of Brakhage's work.
