        Black Beauty

      1966. Anna Sewell's Black Beauty Finely Bound by Bayntun-RiviéreBeautifully Illustrated by Lucy Kemp-WelchSEWELL, Anna. Black Beauty. Illustrated with 8 colour plates and many line drawings by Lucy Kemp-Welch. London: J.M. Dent & Sons Ltd., [1966]. Later edition. Octavo (8 1/16 x 5 1/4 inches; 204 x 134 mm.). xii, 226 pp. Eight full-page color plates and numerous black and white line drawings throughout the text.Bound ca. 1966 by [Bayntun Riviére] for Brentano's in full blue polished calf, covers with double gilt borders, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled in compartments, two red morocco gilt lettering labels, gilt board edges, gilt-turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled end-papers. Small neat book-plate on front paste-down. A fine copy.A superlative copy of the classic - and quite novel - story of a horse, told in his own words, wherein he recounts his life as a well bred steed from early childhood in a pleasant meadow, through numerous owners - some kind and some cruel - until fate returns him to the meadow in which he was born. Though animal autobiographies had been published before for children, Black Beauty stands apart from those in that it offered social criticism of his various owners. Because of that, the book was read, appreciated and loved by adults as well as juveniles. It has never been out of print since its original publication, has been adapted to the screen on fourteen different occasions, and has forever fostered and cemented the special bond between young girls and horses. Ultimately, Black Beauty's continual and lasting value is as one of the first - and certainly most influential - arguments for the humane treatment of animals."Beauty's color is no accident (Sewell's book is clearly modeled on Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, 1852), and the most poignant moments in the narrative occur when Beauty, while recognizing the inevitability of servitude, nevertheless longs wistfully for freedom" (Robert Dingley, in Nineteenth-Century British Women Writers, p. 354)."Anna Sewell (1820?-1878), author, was born on 30 March 1820... her ?'life of constant frustration?' (Mrs Bayly, 71) began when, aged about fourteen, she slipped and fell... injuring both her ankles [that led to] a lameness which, although varying in its severity, was permanent and meant that at times she could not walk outside or stand for very long. She also suffered from a debilitating invalidism which varied in its intensity but remained with her for life characterized at times by pains in her chest, loss of strength in her back, and a ?'weakness?' in her head leading to periods of ?'enforced idleness?' (Mrs Bayly, 245)...

        GRIST 7

      Lawrence, KS: Abington Book Shop, 1966. First Edition. Quarto; white illustrated wraps printed in black and purple, stapled; 39pp; illus. Hint of toning along spine fold, else Fine. Issue 7 of John Fowler's literary magazine, notable for featuring the first commercially published pieces of S. Clay Wilson's artwork. Wilson, along with Robert Crumb and Manuel "Spain" Rodriguez, was an influential pioneer in the underground comix movement beginning in the 1960's. Three pieces of artwork appear in this issue, and while they don't depict the full-throttle violence and ugly sex which usually permeates his work, the beginnings are there. The first piece is a full-page pen drawing titled 'Captain Marble and his pirate crew dine after a hard day of pillage, rape, murder, and looting. And plunder and evil.' The second piece is an untitled centerfold depicting a variety of bikers and miscreants at a burger joint. Wilson has also illustrated the rear cover of the magazine. While other artists from that era have moderated their extreme style of artwork in order to assimilate into the mainstream, even into his 70's, Wilson seems resolutely defiant. An important and extremely uncommon debut, predating any work he did for Zap! Comix by a considerable margin of time.

        CARTAS DE PIEL Xilografias de Sally Weintraub

      Buenos Aires, Argentina: Francisco A. Colombo. 1966. 1st printing. Folio, The text is in English and Spanish. The English translation of the poem is by Celia Pschero. . Weintraub was born in 1931 in La Pampa, Argentina, but now lives and works in Spain. She had a major showing of her work at The Agora Gallery in November, 2014, in New York City. She is the recipient of numerous awards and honors. A list of her exhibitions and collections, from 1955 to 1966, is reproduced in this portfolio. Further information about the artist may be found at her website: sallyweintraub(dot)com. "Letters of Skin" is the name the artist gives to her five xilographies [sic] (i.e., xylography or woodblock print). "Her five xilographies represent the fundamental human reality in its lyric, symbolic and erotic meaning; reality which can be obtained in art much more perfectly than in the world" (from the Prologue). The five woodblock prints in this portfolio are numbered, and the limitation number (44/300) and year of production (1966) are individually designated by hand in pencil. In addition, Weintruab has signed her name in ink below the colophon. Each print measures approximately 41 x 28.5 cm on stiff Dutch paper. The very bottom edge of the prints show slight soiling and a little creasing; otherwise each is in excellent condition. The stiff card folder is quite worn and soiled and the folds of it have been reinforced with clear tape. The other inserted material shows slight wear but, with the exception of the photo page (showing a young Weintraub and the poet Tomat-Guido), which has a stain across the bottom edge, everything else is unmarked. .

        Beautiful Losers.

      Viking Press, New York 1966 - First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Leonard Cohen on the title page. Fine in a very good dust jacket. Beautiful Losers is an expression of the 1960's. Leonard Cohen wrote it while fasting and consuming amphetamines to focus his creativity. The product is a complex novel that uses a range of literary techniques, allusions, and symbolism (Adria, 1990). It is noted for its excesses of language and sexuality, and it is filled with the mysticism and drug-use that is emblematic of the era (Goldie, 2003). In a similar manner, the plot is not a linear, coherent progression. Key scenes repeat themselves, and there is no intelligible timeline. Beautiful Loser's gained great popularity when Cohen turned from writer to popular singer-songwriter, and it is remembered for having introduced postmodernism to the Canadian literary canon.

        Original Painting for the Artists Tower of Protest (also known as: "The Peace Tower")

      Original painting for the 1966 "Artists Tower of Protest" (also known as "The Peace Tower"). Approximately 24" x 24". Signed on the rear "Angela Kosta" on an affixed label with her Chicago address. Modest corner wear, but near fine. The painting in white, orange, and red, depicts a figure hugging its knees, confined in a triangle which is itself within a circle. The Peace Tower was a 58-foot steel tetrahedron erected in 1966 on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles to protest the Vietnam War. This two-foot by two-foot work on plywood, painted by artist Angela Driessen-Kosta, was one of 418 panels that were attached to the structure designed by the sculptor Mark di Suvero. Artists from around the world contributed to the tower, including Elaine de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Rauschenberg (who provided the bulk of the funding to complete the work).According to Driessen-Kosta: "My intention was to create an 'anti-war' poster. The central figure is expressing grief and is in a confined or 'hopeless' space. The bright colors were used to attract attention but also resemble a 'stop sign' as in stop wars." She received a degree in art education from Western Michigan University and did postgraduate work at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She was a photographic set and window display designer in Chicago for 16 years, then moved to San Diego in 1979, where she mounted numerous exhibitions and received a variety of awards. Her artwork is primarily mixed media and sculptural assemblages. The Peace Tower was dedicated on February 26, 1966 with speeches by Susan Sontag, Irving Petlin, and former Green Beret Donald Duncan. During the three months it stood, the tower and artists were continually under attack. Volunteers from Watts, the recent scene of race riots, assisted in defending it. Efforts were made to relocate the work to another permanent location, but none were successful. Ultimately, the tower itself was dismantled and cut up, the artworks were wrapped in brown paper and anonymously auctioned off by The Los Angeles Peace Center, raising $12,000, according to Art, Politics and Dissent: Aspects of the Art Left in Sixties America (2000) by Francis Frascina. The Peace Tower was controversial for more than just its unpopular position against the Vietnam War. It represented the first instance of American artists coming together to create a collective work of art in political protest. "In order to fully contextualize the Peace Tower as well as other efforts artists would make to combine art and politics in their work from 1966 onward, one must understand how such efforts would have been undesirable and unwelcome in the American fine arts system of the 1960s," wrote Matthew Israel in his book Kill for Peace: American Artist Against the Vietnam War (2013). The Tower is also now a model for organizing collective artistic endeavors.In 2006, the Whitney Museum staged a recreation of the tower in protest of the War in Iraq, and Driessen-Kosta was among the few original Peace Tower artists invited to contribute to this work. A bright and vivid depiction of Vietnam Anti-War art. .

        [Typescript Review of]: Hell's Angels by Hunter S. Thompson

      [circa 1966]. Typescript review of Hunter S. Thompson's first book, here mis-titled The Hell's Angels, by Beat novelist and critic Herbert Gold. Five letter size leaves, typed rectos only with Gold's address and ink and pencil corrections throughout. Folded from mailing with wear to the extremities and toning to the bottom halves of all pages, else very good. The review is positive, reportedly as were most at the time. Gold describes the book as "a comic nightmare, woven of several strands: accurate documentation of 'runs' and parties, ecstatic meditation on cycles and machinery, and a fitful litany for the injured souls of America." He specifically comments on the immersive nature of Thompson's reporting, noting that the work "has this quality of total immersion... touching at the various meaning of his adventure, singing goofy and horrifying rhapsodies of involvement." An interesting contemporary look at the book that brought Thompson a national audience. .

        Typed Letter Signed

      Los Angeles: np. 1st Edition. No Binding. SIGNED LETTER by Ansel Adams, revealing his philosophy on photography as "true communication." Written on personal stationery in Los Angeles, CA on October 25th, 1966, Adam's letter to a Mr. Owing reads: Dear M[r]. Owing: I have your letter of the 19th; this can be but a short hasty reply, as I am involved in m[y] University project without let-up! Your questions are difficult to answer simply! You must first define "abstract". I think there can be no Abstract photography (ex1/2ect [sic] the Photogram). I prefer to think of the tern [sic] "Extract". At any event, we can use almost any subject material and-by the way we "see" it and apply techniques we can deviate from "reality" (if we use the term Reality in the accepted sense). The question really is: do we communicate with others, or really just talk to ourselves? I think 95% of contemporary art is simply talking to ourselves; reaffirming the "cult", or tribal relationships. I personally feel that the expression of subconscious feelings, etc. is only valid when such expression really touches others and contributes something to their understanding. Very little photography does this, I am afraid. I think you can visualize an image as such; True communication requires more than just creating an image in the minds [sic] eye, and then producing it as a print! No matter what this image means to you, it does not have essential value unless it can create a sense of elevation and comprehension of the realities of the world and of the spirit on the part of the spactator [sic]. Here is where the study of the human situation is as important - or more so - than the study of photography and art by the photographer. We make hundreds of quite remarkable photographers that say precisely nothing of real human importance! Please write again! cordially [Signed] ANSEL ADAMS Indeed, true to his philosophy, Adams "sought an intensification and purification of the psychological experience of natural beauty. He created a sense of the sublime magnificence of nature that infused the viewer with the emotional equivalent of wilderness, often more powerful than the actual thing" (William A. Turnage, American National Biography). (In 1963, Adams received a commission from University of California President Clark Kerr to photograph the UC system in commemoration of the university's centennial. The resulting collection is titled Fiat Lux and was published in 1967. Fiat Lux is the "University project" Adams refers to in the letter.) Los Angeles, CA: October 25, 1966. One (7 x 8.5 inches) page. With holograph corrections. An outstanding letter with fascinating content.

        De la misere en milieu etudiant: considéréé sous ses aspects economique, politique, psychologique, sexuel et notamment intellectuel et de quelques moyens pour y remédier

      Strasbourg. Reliure originale. Trés bon état. / Fine Condition. First Edition.. Strasbourg, 1966. 8°. 28 pages sous couvertures bleues. Broché (Softcover). Reliure originale. Trés bon état. / Fine Condition. First Edition. [Supplément spécial au No. 16 de 21-27 Etudiants de France] L'Internationale situationniste (IS) était une organisation révolutionnaire désireuse d'en finir avec le malheur historique, avec la société de classes et la dictature de la marchandise, se situant dans la filiation de différents courants apparus au début du XXe siècle, notamment de la pensée marxiste d'Anton Pannekoek et de Rosa Luxemburg, du communisme de conseils, ainsi que du groupe Socialisme ou barbarie (Claude Lefort, Cornelius Castoriadis notamment) dans les années 1950. En ce sens, elle pourrait être apparentée à un groupe d'ultra-gauche. Mais elle représentait à ses débuts l'expression d'une volonté de dépassement des tentatives révolutionnaires des avant-gardes artistiques de la première moitié du XXe siècle, le dadaïsme, le surréalisme[1] et le lettrisme[2]. Formellement créée en juillet 1957 à la Conférence de Cosio di Arroscia, l'internationale situationniste est née du rapprochement d'un ensemble international de mouvements d'avant-garde, dont l'Internationale lettriste (elle même issue d'une rupture avec le Lettrisme de Isidore Isou), le Mouvement international pour un Bauhaus imaginiste, le Comité psychogéographique de Londres et un groupe de peintres italiens. Son document fondateur, Rapport sur la construction de situations..., a été rédigé par Guy Debord en 1957. Dans ce texte programmatique, Debord pose l'exigence de « changer le monde » et envisage le dépassement de toutes les formes artistiques par « un emploi unitaire de tous les moyens de bouleversement de la vie quotidienne ». L'un des principaux objectifs de l'Internationale situationniste était l'accomplissement des promesses contenues dans le développement de l'appareil de production contemporain et la libération des conditions historiques, par une réappropriation du réel, et ce dans tous les domaines de la vie. Si le dépassement de l'art fut son projet originel, elle s'est rapidement orientée vers une critique de la société du spectacle, ou société « spectaculaire-marchande », corroborée d'un désir de révolution sociale. L'année 1962 voit la scission entre « artistes » et « révolutionnaires » et l'exclusion des premiers. D'un point de vue organisationnel, l'IS conserve la position très marxiste d'un parti théorique représentant le plus haut niveau de conscience révolutionnaire. La théorisation de cette position ne se fera qu'assez tardivement dans la Définition Minimum des Organisations révolutionnaires (IS n°11), adoptée par la 7°Conférence de l'IS en 1967, qui sera en France l'une des références du conseillisme d'après mai 1968, et en 1969 dans les Préliminaires sur les conseils et l'organisation conseilliste (IS n°12).
