Preceded only by the privately printed pamphlet Eleven Poems in 1965, Death of Naturalist, the author's first commercially published work, was received with critical acclaim. Hailed as the greatest Irish poet since Yeats, Heaney's poetry evokes imagery of the Irish countryside, where the poet grew up. The dust jacket affirms, "It is in particular the acute observation of the countryside and its people that gives his poetry its distinctive strength." Death of a Naturalist is concerned with the author's memories from his childhood, ranging from experiences with nature to the death of his four-year-old brother. Although Heaney would not win the Nobel Prize in Literature until 1995, Death of a Naturalist won the young poet notable awards, including the Somerset Maugham Award, the Cholmondeley Award, the Eric Gregory Award, and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Chi-Chi the panda

      1966. Sheet size: 152 × 177 mm. Pen and ink on wove paper. Stamped for publication in the Sunday Telegraph books section. A zookeeper grins as Chi-Chi the panda watches a piece of toast inscribed "An-An's a Man for a' That!" fly up from the toaster. Chi-Chi was the star attraction of London Zoo; she was greatly pampered, and often indulged with human food by visitors. In 1966 her fruitless liaison with Moscow Zoo's An-An made front page news. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        Civil Rights Era Autograph Album

      [Atlanta], 1966-70. 6 by 4.75 inches, red leatherette stamped in gold.41 leaves, 23 with with autographs or inscriptions including Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, John Lewis, Jesse Jackson, and Andrew Young among others. All signatures are directly on the page [recto side] except for the following examples: Fannie Lou Hammer's contribution is on a piece of lined notebook paper with the inscription Freedom Now!/Fannie Lou Hammer/ Right on. Charlie S. White has inscribed a a note size piece Roosevelt Hotel New Orleans stationery. Kira Vivian, one of six children of Rev. Dr. C.T. and Octavia Geans Vivian, grew up in one of the most active families of the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. Vivian’s career includes working with the Blackstone Rangers and as a chief lieutenant for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He is the 2013 recipient of the President’s Freedom Medal and continues to be active in many causes. His wife, Octavia, a talented lay historian, wrote the first biography of Coretta King and over a lifetime collected the history of the Civil Rights Movement through its ephemera and photographs. Kira’s album exemplifies the Vivian family’s sensitivity to the historical importance of the movement. Octavia Vivian gave each of her children an autograph album and encouraged them to acquire the signatures of her husband’s activist colleagues. The contents reveal a level of intimacy and association between the signer and the owner. Guy Carawan, musician to the movement, enters a light hearted inscription: “13 is my lucky number and that’s how old Kira is”. John Lewis’ inscription is more serious in tone: “with all good wishes for the young like you shall overcome”. Dr. King’s bold and prominent inscription reads, “ Best wishes for a great future”. The other signatures represent a diverse cross section of movement personalities: Charles Billups, Jessie Jackson, Andrew Young, Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer, Father James Groppi, artist Charles White. To add a bit of thirteen-year-old charm showing Kira is not overwhelmed by the greats, we find a few entries by her classmates. A remarkable piece with bold and clear signatures unique for its provenance, that taken together together as a singular object, transcends the sum of its parts.

The red-stained top edges all retain strong color, with only very slight sunning to a few. The uniform, solid color dust jackets are all unclipped, varying from very good plus to fine condition. Shelf presentation is quite good. All eight dust jackets are complete with only slight wear at the head of the Volume II jacket spine and some abrasion along the lower Volume VII rear hinge. Many of these solid color dust jackets proved highly susceptible to sunning of the spines. Here minor sunning affects the jacket spines of only Volumes II & IV. All eight dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Please note that this is a large and heavy set that will likely require additional postage.

Kennedy and his wife Ethel: "For Bob Kennedy -- and Ethel with respect and affection. Elie Abel."

        Aspen: The Magazine in a Box, Vol. 1, No. 3

      (New York: Aspen. 1966). First. Issue 3, "The Pop Art Issue." Designed by Andy Warhol and David Dalton. Box a little crushed as usual, with two corners torn, some offsetting at the bottom of the box, very good. Complete with all parts, pieces, and cards (a full list of contents is available upon request). Both the front and the inside front cover of the box, as well as eight pieces in the box have been Signed by Andy Warhol (a couple of them are Inscribed), including, the flexi-disc, the Ten Trip Ticket Book, the movie flip book, the Pop-Art Paint card folder, the Guild Instruments flyer, the Folk Music on Vanguard pamphlet, the tabloid newspaper, and a cardboard divider. Includes contributions by Andy Warhol, Willem de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Ernest Trova, Kenneth Noland, Gerald Laing, Jasper Johns, James Rosenquist, Lou Reed, and Timothy Leary. The original 33 1/3 flexi-disc acetate recording, signed by Warhol, contains the song "Loop," written by John Cale and credited to the Velvet Underground. It was one of the first commercially available recordings by the Velvet Underground, preceding the release of their debut album by a few months. A highly collectible recording, particularly when accompanied by all its original related packaging and signed by the group's mentor, Warhol. Although never commercially successful during their time, the Velvet Underground is now considered one of the most important and influential rock groups of all time. As Brian Eno famously observed, while only a few thousand people bought their first album, almost every one of those early listeners was inspired to start a band. Because of its unusual construction, few complete copies of Aspen survive, and it is rare signed thus. Further details available upon request. .

        International Times: Issues 1, 2 & 3

      [London: no publisher. 1966]. First. Newspaper. Three issues of the weekly English counterculture newspaper, each issue is folded once as issued. Folios. 12pp., 16pp., and 12pp. Near fine in illustrated wrappers with very light tanning, scattered tears at the extremities, and a couple of spots. An important and influential alternative press publication launched in London in the fall of 1966 by co-founders John Hopkins, a noted photographer and activist of the time, and Barry Miles, owner of the influential Indica Bookshop and Gallery, and the man who introduced Paul McCartney to some very special brownies. The bi-weekly publication focused on politics, art, music, movies, and culture. Issue One includes a poem by Adrian Mitchell, a photo by John Hopkins, a comic by Jeff Nuttall and, most notably, an article about a new exhibition at the Indica Gallery by artist Yoko Ono, one that John Lennon would attend and, well, you know the rest. Issue Two includes an article about Ezra Pound, an underground film festival supplement, and coverage of the International Times launch party which apparently was a hell of a bash: an appearance by Paul McCartney, a performance by Pink Floyd, the viewing of William Burroughs's film Towers Open Fire, and a car in the middle of it all painted in psychedelic colors (apparently the party spoofed in Austin Powers was real and this was it). Issue Three includes a piece written by Burroughs, "The Invisible Generation," along with articles on Bertrand Russell, composer Morton Feldman, and on rubber fetishists by noted film critic Raymond Durgnat, entitled "Rubber with Violence." These newspapers are an interesting window into the life of Swinging Sixties London. .

        Big As Life

      NY: Simon and Schuster, (1966). First edition of author's scarce second book. This copy is inscribed and signed by Doctorow on front endpaper, and even the inscription -- "To ____, a rare edition" -- attests to the scarcity of this title. Although not set in the future, Doctorow employs the science fiction device of a catastrophic event -- in this instance, the appearance of two gigantic figures in New York Harbor -- and the resultant human drama that unfolds in response to it. To date, Doctorow has not allowed this book to be reprinted. Faint strip of sunning along upper extremity of front cover, small spot to back cover, else a nearly fine copy in unfaded dust wrapper which shows light wear to lower corners.
