        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.

        Winston S. Churchill: The Official Biography, full set of 8 volumes in uniform, solid color dust jackets

      London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1966. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, begun by Randolph Churchill and completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life. All eight main text volumes are now out of print, having been published between 1966 and 1988. Together they claim 19 inches of shelf space, weigh more than 28 pounds, and fill nearly 8,700 pages. Offered here is a complete, jacketed set of all eight volumes. All eight volumes are British first editions in their original, uniform, solid color dust jackets. All eight volumes are in near-fine plus or better condition, appearing unread. All eight bindings are tight, clean, and square with virtually no wear. The contents of all eight volumes are clean and bright. We find no spotting or previous ownership marks of any kind in the set. The unstained fore and bottom edges are likewise clean and bright. 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.

        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. .

        Aspen: The Magazine in a Box, Vol. 1, No. 2

      (New York: Aspen. 1966). First. Issue 2, "The White Box." Designed by Frank Kirk, with Tony Angotti. Contains the following items:1. "Farewell to a Canyon" by an unnamed author, 14 loose pages in card folder.2. "Ski Racing / Edging the Possible" by Martin Luray, single page accordion-folded into card folder.3. "Scriabin Again and Again..." by Faubion Bowers, small booklet.4. "The Adaptable House" by Peggy Clifford, large poster folded into small card folder.5.

Bazelon, Robert Osborn, Albert and David Maysles, Jean Renoir, Carroll Baker, Eva Marie Saint, Dr. Karl Menninger, Jack Garfein, and Richard Dyer MacCann.6. Music by Alexander Scriabin played by Daniel Kunin, original 33 1/3 acetate flexi-disc recording.Some wear and soiling to the white box, otherwise all items in fine condition. Aspen was a multimedia "magazine" about the arts published by Phyllis Johnson, a former editor for Women's Wear Daily and Advertising Age, from 1965 to 1971. Each issue was a custom-made box containing separate booklets, pamphlets, records, posters, and in one issue, a Super-8 movie reel -- each item representing what would have been an article in a traditional printed magazine. Each issue had its own editor and designer, which provided unprecedented artistic originality. However, not surprisingly, its avant-garde format made it impractical, if not downright impossible, for the magazine to support itself. Advertising was supposed to help pay for the costs of production, but the ads, which were contained in a folder at the bottom of the box, were easily ignored. Furthermore, it proved difficult to adhere to the publication schedule of four issues a year. In the end, only ten issues were published. A much repeated assessment is: "Perhaps Aspen was a folly, but it was a vastly pleasurable one, with a significant place in art history. The list of contributors included some of the most interesting artists of the 20th Century. And as an exemplar of creative publishing, Aspen was a wonder. Its contents, however, are all but lost: few copies of Aspen have survived." .

        Original Artwork Entitled The Tora, Offshore Huntington Bay, NY

        AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS and Other Novels of Terror (First U. K. Edition, INSCRIBED)

      Gollancz 1966 - Lovecraft, H. P. AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS and other novels of terror. Selected with an introduction by August Derleth. London: Gollancz, 1966. First English Edition. NEAR FINE copy in NEAR FINE priced dust jacket, the tiniest of blemishes to both book and jacket but it has exceptionally good eye appeal without any of the usual problems that plague the bright yellow Gollancz dustwrappers of the era. INSCRIBED BY AUGUST DERLETH on the front-free endpaper to a well-known collector; we're not aware of Derleth having signed many other First English Lovecraft editions. This is the first time we've handled one in twenty years of selling a lot of Lovecraft so we suspect there's some genuine scarcity here. This is an impressively fat anthology for English readers including THE CASE OF CHARLES DEXTER WARD, THE SHUNNED HOUSE & THE DREAM-QUEST OF UNKNOWN KADATH as well as the title novel and four other novellas.
