        Rama tan ma.

      Wien, [1966]. - Dt. Manuskript auf Papier. 47 nn. Blätter. Mit 29 ganzseitigen, bildmäßig ausgeführten Aquarellen auf zwischengebundenen Kartontafeln. Halbleinenband mit aufkaschierten Deckelillustrationen, am hinteren Deckel signiert. Im Originalschuber mit gemaltem Deckelschildchen. 8vo. Hochinteressante, satirische Dialektdichtung in Versen über den Wiener Kunstbetrieb der Nachkriegszeit; in Wort und Bild ausführlich porträtiert werden u. a. Leherb, Friedensreich Hundertwasser und Arnulf Rainer. Auf letzteren, der seine frühe Arbeiten bekanntlich mit dem Pseudonym "TRR" signierte, beziehen sich die oben zitierten Verse. - Die hervorragende Qualität der Illustrationen, aber auch die zu teils sehr emotionaler Kritik an den jeweils behandelten Personen herangezogenen Interna lassen darauf schließen, daß es sich bei dem Urheber dieses Werkes um einen Angehörigen der Wiener Akademie gehandelt haben muß. Die letzten Zeilen des Werkes sind möglicherweise als Hinweis darauf zu lesen, daß dieser als Gaststudent in Wien weilte: "A jeder wåschechte aus Wien / Håt wås vom liaben Augustin / [.] Kan Sinn für Ghäßigkeit und Neid / A guates Herz für brave Leut. / [.] Nur etwås kann eahms kräftig stiern; / Wann Zuagraste wås ausstallieren." - Der gleichnamige deutsche Künstler M. Koeppel (geb. 1937), der in den 60er Jahren in Wien studierte und zuletzt mit dem Triptychon "Die Öffnung der Berliner Mauer" zur Ausstattung des Berliner Abgeordnetenhauses beitrug, bestreitet jedenfalls die Urheberschaft am vorliegenden Buch ("Da die Zeichnungen eine gute Qualität haben, müßte ich mich allerdings nicht schämen, wenn Sie von mir wären .". Aus dem beiliegenden Schreiben v. 10. XII. 1999). - Bemerkenswertes unveröffentlichtes Zeitdokument mit beeindruckend qualitätvollen, zeitgenössischen Porträts bzw. Karikaturen der Kunstschaffenden im Wien der Nachkriegszeit. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

This is a printed version of the appeal Leary's council made for his famous conviction on March 11, 1966 for transporting and illegally importing marihuana. The famous case known as Leary vs. United States was eventually overturned on the grounds that the Marihuana Tax Act was declared unconstitutional. His conviction was thus quashed. This wonderful document detailing the whole grounds for appeal has been signed by Leary on the front wrapper when he was making a public reading in Toronto in 1992. The prospectus for the Multimedia convention is also loosely laid in. A wonderful rare Leary item..

        Sprachgitter

      Frankfurt, S. Fischer Verlag 1966 - Livre d'occasion 21 x 16,3 cm, cartonnage éditeur, jaquette blanche imprimée en noir, 66 pp., 2 ff. n. ch. Marie-Madeleine Delay était l'épouse du Professeur Jean Delay, psychiatre neurologue qui dirigeait le service de psychiatrie de l'Hôpital Sainte-Anne dans lequel Paul Celan avait été accueilli début février 1966. Elle était aussi une amie intime de René Char, qui avec son soutien, intervint pour améliorer les conditions d'hospitalisation de Celan. Les correspondances échangées par Paul Celan avec sa femme, Gisèle Celan-Lestrange (Seuil, 2001) ainsi qu'avec René Char (à paraître en 2015 chez Gallimard) permettent d'éclaircir les circonstances dans lesquelles a été écrite cette dédicace en apparence anodine. Le 23 décembre 1965, René Char, ayant appris que le traducteur de sa poésie en allemand est souffrant, écrit à son épouse Gisèle pour lui proposer son aide. Celan est alors interné à Sainte-Anne parce que, dans une crise de délire, il a voulu attenter à la vie de sa femme. Le 11 janvier 1966, Gisèle rend visite à Char pour essayer de trouver une solution aux multiples problèmes auxquelles elle est confrontée. Trois semaines plus tard, le 5 février, Marie-Madeleine Delay, dans une lettre à Char, l'informe qu'on vient de lui recommander le poète Paul Celan et lui apprend qu'elle s'occupe de lui. Le 8 février, le Professeur Pierre Deniker, qui travaille avec Jean Delay, écrit à René Char et lui confirme qu'il fera "le maximum pour Paul Celan". Paul Celan est alors interné dans le service du Professeur Delay pour y suivre un traitement adapté. Dans une lettre datée du 10 février, Marie-Madeleine Delay informe Char que Paul Celan est "calme". Dans la même missive, elle commente sa lecture de Die Niemandsrose (La Rose de personne), recueil de Celan paru en 1963, que Char, qui n'ignore pas qu'elle lit l'allemand, lui a probablement confié : "ce sont des Poèmes [.] d'une grande et terrible beauté". Le 9 juin 1966, Paul Celan sort de l'hôpital et retrouve une vie familiale plus apaisée. Vient alors le temps des remerciements. Celan adresse à Char le 21 juillet la traduction en allemand de "Dernière Marche", le poème qui clôt Retour Amont. C'est très certainement à la même période, que le poète allemand envoie cet exemplaire de Sprachgitter à Marie-Madeleine Delay. La dédicace, comme presque toutes celles de la plume de Celan, est lapidaire, mais elle est - on le comprend une fois qu'on connaît les circonstances dans lesquelles elle a été écrite - lestée de non-dit. Remerciements à M. Bertrand Badiou (enseignant-chercheur à l'Ecole normale supérieure). Condition : Réédition de 1966 (correspondant au tirage du 7ème au 9ème mille) en allemand de ce recueil de poèmes (Grille de parole en français), l'édition originale ayant paru chez le même éditeur en 1959. Très précieux envoi autographe signé de l'auteur : "A Madame Delay, / avec mes respectueux hommages, / Paul Celan". 280g. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT: 1966 HANDWRITTEN NOTES FOR CASEY STENGEL'S HALL OF FAME INDUCTION SPEECH

      (1966) 1966 - A 2-1/2 page handwritten manuscript on three sheets containing Stengel's notes for his induction speech to the Hall of Fame in 1966, an honor he shared that year with Ted Williams, who gave one of the most important speeches in baseball history when he asked the Hall to open its doors to Negro Leagues players. Stengel, whose career began as a player in 1912 and ended as a manager in 1965, was one of the most colorful figures in the game, noted for his twists of language and truisms such as "Good pitching beats good hitting, and vice versa." As manager of the Yankees, he won 7 World Series out of 9 appearances in 12 years. Mickey Mantle in his Hall of Fame speech said that his father and Stengel were responsible for his success. He also managed the 1962 Mets, the worst team in modern baseball. After their final loss that season, Casey told his players, "This has been a team effort. No one or two guys could have done all this." The notes begin "Hall of Fame & Museum, Cooperstown, N.Y., July 25th 1966," mention "Ted Williams, perfect swing, can hit distance, greatest batter hitting L. handed in my experience in the American League." He cites many players: Ruth, Cobb, Dimaggio, Mantle, often with a comment, and lists the names of all the original inductees. He mentions Abner Doubleday, One-Cat Two-Cat or Rounders, "girls teams 1890-1, Dresses with bloomers," and much more. These pages may have been on the podium with Casey when he accepted baseball's greatest honor. In any event, they are important and historic. Writing dark and clear. Very Good and exceptional
