        HOGAN'S GOAT

      1966. ALFRED, William. HOGAN'S GOAT. NY: Farrar Straus & Giroux, [1966]. 8vo., cloth in dust jacket. First Edition. This is the personal copy of Albert Shipley- a supporting member of the cast during the play's original Off-Broadway performance at the American Place Theatre, New York City, in November, 1965. Faye Dunaway played the lead role of "Kathleen Stanton" in the play and her performance in this role is generally considered the one that launched her career. This copy is signed by Faye Dunaway and 32 other cast members. A remarkable copy, Dunaway's signature is the largest at the bottom of the cast list- see pages [x and xi]. Also with signatures, including Alfred, director Frederick Rolf, and actors Conrad Bain and Ralph Waite, who played the lead role, on the opposite blank page. Shipley has signed the front endpaper and affixed a small snapshot of himself (in costume?) and his blindstamp bookmark. Shipley's personal calling card is inserted and page [147] has been annotated with a correction noting the play was first staged on October 19 rather than in November. Early in her career Dunaway was appearing in a number of productions at the Lincoln Center Repertory Company but eventually she left after director Elia Kazin quit the company. She subsequently landed the lead role in this play and caught the eye of producer Sam Spiegel. This led to her first film appearance in "The Happening." Near fine (small stain fore-edge); little edgewear and few small tear (price-clipped) d/j. $750.00.

Vivian, Blackstone Ranger, Freedom Rider, and one of the chief lieutenants of Dr. King during the Civil Rights Struggle. Inscribed by Kira Vivian to herself on the front fly, in girlish fashion. Leaves are creased where they've been unfolded, else condition overall is fine. Most of the signatures are directly on the pages of the album, a few inscriptions are tipped or laid in.Interspersed with a few autographs of the young teenage Kira's school friends are the Inscriptions and Autographs of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, John Lewis, Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Fanny Lou Hamer, Charles Billups, and James Bevel (Director of Direct Action and Director of Nonviolent Education of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and the Director of the Selma Movement). A visceral artifact of the struggle for Civil Rights, compiled at a time when the outcome was by no means assured. It would be difficult to capture the immediacy of the Movement so completely in a single object. .

        Two Signed Letters! The first American to orbit the Earth, John Glenn advises students <i>?that we should all be exposed to a maximum variety of subjects to enable us to find not only the vocation that best suits our abilities, but to find ourselves ??</i>

      (1) Typed Letter Signed ?J.H. Glenn, Jr.,? 1 page, 8.5? x 11?. Seabrook, Texas, March 31, 1966. To Miss Evelyn B. Byrne, New York. On lightweight paper with accompanying postmarked airmail envelope. Fine condition. In full, ?Thank you for your letter of February 19th which accompanied the form letter from the Editors of Chatterbox asking for the name of my favorite book or books. I believe that we should all be exposed to a maximum variety of subjects to enable us to find not only the vocation that best suits our abilities, but to find ourselves. One of our greatest sources of individual growth comes from the books we read. Through books, we gain the wisdom of the past, which we can apply to our present work and, thus, develop plans for the future. Our growth as a nation depends on many widely diversified professions and skills. If our progress as a nation is to be as complete as we know it can be, then the wisdom of the past much come alive for us in as many fields as possible. For this reason, I prefer not to pinpoint any particular books as being more beneficial than others. Please extend my warmest personal regards to the editors for their kindness in including me as a part of their program. My best wishes to you, the faculty and students of J.H.S. 115.? (2) Typed Letter Signed ?J.H. Glenn, Jr.,? 1 page, 8.5? x 11?. Seabrook, Texas, November 1, 1967. To Miss Evelyn B. Byrne, New York. With accompanying postmarked airmail envelope. Fine condition. In full, ?Thank you for your letter regarding inclusion of my previous letter in a reprint volume you are planning. That is certainly satisfactory with me and I am glad you have received such favorable comment on your activities.? From 1966 to 1970, Evelyn Byrne ran a program at New York City's Elizabeth Barrett Browning Junior High School 115 where she asked major literary and artistic figures of the time to write back with their recollections of what books inspired them while they were teenagers. An assortment of their responses were published in the book Attacks of Taste, printed in 1971 by Gotham Book Mart.

        Bomb Hanoi

      1966. WARHOL, Andy. [Bomb Hanoi]. Some / Thing #3 (Vol. 2, No. 1, Winter 1966). 8vo., 215 x 135 mm, bound in original illustrated wrappers. New York: Printed by Harry Gantt for Jerome Rothenberg and David Antin, 1966. |~||~||~||~| Rare example of Warhol's famously ironic comment on the Vietnam War: an entire magazine cover of 12 stamps, bearing the words "BOMB HANOI" within yellow "happy-face" circles. "In 1966, that 'honorary member' of the new sensibility, Andy Warhol - whose multiple-image Pop paintings often resemble stamp sheets - created a non-denominational sheet of stamps as the cover of the literary magazine Some/Thing #3. On each stamp the legend "BOMB HANOI" floats in the middle of a yellow orb. In exact terms Warhol's was not a postage stamp, but a "campaign" stamp, the kind that political or other special interest groups publish to affix to letters (e.g. Easter Seals). As I recall, Warhol has also done a painting of a sheet of S&H Green Stamps" (Peter Frank, "Postal Modernism: Artists' Stamps and Stamp Images"). First Edition of the third installment of Jerome Rothenberg and David Antin's periodical. PROVENANCE: Ownership signature of Kathy Acker in red ink.

        The Spectra Hoax [presentation, association]

      Middletown, CT: Wesleyan University Press, 1966 Middletown, CT: Wesleyan Univeristy Press, 1961. First Edition. Signed by lead hoaxer Witter Bynner [as "Emanuel Morgan"], presented to Kenneth L. Ball, the student who first discovered his identity. Octavo, 158 pp, beige cloth with black and white imprinting, jacket. Fine book in near fine jacket showing trace edgewear. A singular copy of the book about "the hoax" . In the early years of the twentieth century, all of the arts - particularly poetry - were thriving in the midst of a post-industrial-revolution swell of excitement, creativity and new aesthetic "schools"; poetry, for its part, rolled out Imagism, Vorticism, Futurism, Chorism, and a rogue's gallery of other new poetic genres, each based on its own aesthetic theorizing. Appearing in the midst of this rather joyous and certainly passionate carnival were Emanuel Morgan, expatriate painter-turned-poet reunited with his native Pittsburgh, and his close friends and colleagues, the beautiful Hungarian poet (who wrote in Russian) Anna Knish, and barrister Elijah Hay. In 1916, Morgan and Knish took the poetry world by storm with their Spectrist school of poetry, which was based on three visions of the term - spectra, the task of the artist to perceived beauty in its component colors, rather than as the glorious white light in which it occurs naturally; the reflex vibrations of that same light which occur only within the artist, like the light phenomena in our eyes; and spectre, the yet more difficult task of uncovering the subtle, hidden spirits behind and within beauty. Morgan used regular rhymed stanza in his spectrism offerings, while Knish used only free verse, but they were attempting the same thing. The poetic world was quickly awash in discussion and analysis of the spectrist school; a few thought the intellectual foundation to be a bit pretentiously framed, others thought it strange that there had been no public appearances by the pair or their lawyer colleague Hay; but the fermenting, energetic world of poetry at the time was full of new voices and figures. No one seemed to take much note of the fact that some of the lines seemed a bit nonsensical, others downright humorous. After all, poetry had few rules, even then. Some were suspiscious, however, that many of the poems, especially in the duo's lead vehicle, the publication Spectra, didn't seem to fit, in any clear way, the espoused theory. Some uneasy suspicion about Morgan and Knish - and about poet/lecturers Witter Bynner and Arthur Ficke, who first wrote about them in depth - started to sprout. Finally, in 1918, a young student at the University of Wisconsin, after a lecture by poet Witter Bynner, asked Bynner if it were not true that he was, in fact, Emanuel Morgan, and that Ficke was, in fact, Knish. A bit wearied- even embarrassed - by the hoax by then [and knowing that his underlying goal of lampooning pretentious schools of poetry couldn't be consummated anyway, without revelation] , Bynner confessed all, including the fact that their supportive "briefless barrister", Elijah Hay, was another colleague, Marjorie Allen Seiffert. One of the greatest literary hoaxes in history was at an end. Although the identity of the young challenger is not known with certainty (it was not, Bynner let it be known, Horace Kallen, who at one time claimed the unmasking], there is some feeling that Kenneth L. Ball, to whom this volume was presented and inscribed "with a bow" by Bynner [signing as Emanuel Morgan], was that student. The volume contains the history of the hoax as well as the complete text of the original Spectra. Please feel free to ask questions or request additional scans. - L6
