        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. "The Young Out's VS the Establishment," small booklet with short essays by Lionel Trilling, Stanley Hirsin, Abby Mann, Norman Corwin, Robert Blumofe, Arthur Knight, John Burchard, David T. 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." .

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.

        Anthony Trollope

      c. 1966. Sheet size: 190 × 140 mm. Pen and ink and blue crayon on wove paper. Stamped on recto lower margin for publication in the Sunday Telegraph. Portrait of the author in old age, the eyes highlighted in blue. 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.

        Assemblage, Environments & Happenings

      Abrams 1966 - Allan Kaprow, Assemblage, Environments & Happenings, Abrams, New York, 1966. Square quarto soft cover (300 x 300 mm) in printed gatefold flaps. 341 pp, with full page black and white illustrations and documentation of events throughout, designed and compiled by Kaprow. A comprehensive survey of Kaprow?s own Happenings, interlaced with photographic documentation and contextual analyses of the work being done by his artistic contemporaries. Includes an ?introductory? text by Kaprow, found in the middle of the book next to the colophon, and printed on contrasting brown paper stock. The preface to the text reads: ?Artists, like critics and historians, make the history they reflect, even with the best intentions to remain objective. I thought, when I began writing, that I should try both to observe and to influence as much as possible. But any book conceived in the middle of things rapidly evolving is bound to be topical and incomplete. This is its obvious limitation, as well as its special merit.? The curious decision to place the introduction in the centre of the book reflects Kaprow?s vision of art as a rapidly evolving process. The publication features the work of many Happenings and Fluxus artists alongside Kaprow: works and performances by Robert Whitman; Yayoi Kusama; Jim Dine; Jean Tinguely and Clarence Schmidt are all documented, as well as special sections on the work of: 9 Japanese of the Gutai Group; Jean-Jacques Lebel; Wolf Vostel; George Brecht; Kenneth Dewey and Milan Kní?ák. These case studies usefully contextualise the work of Kaprow, thereby suggesting his Happenings to be part of a burgeoning art movement. Condition: near fine. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Versuchbuch Galaxien. Rot No. 25.

      Stuttgart: Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1966 - Duodecimo. Original white wrappers printed in red and black. Wrappers very lightly rubbed with a small abrasion to the front panel. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the title page "To prof. Roman Jakobson, with all my respect and best regards, Haroldo de Campos, Sao Paulo Brazil 2.10.'66". A fantastic association copy linking one of the greatest concrete poets of the twentieth century with one of its greatest linguists. De Campos used the theories of Jakobson to inform his theories on concrete poetry and his own work, especially in his critical work on Chinese ideograms. Jakobson was a long tmie admirer of the work of de Campos and praised his "supreme flairfor the innermost ties between sound and meaning, a flair which underlies and sustains [his] most daring poetic experiments and thrilling discoveries and which inspires his extraordinary transpositions of seemingly untranslatable poems from quite divergent languages" (Jakobson, Martin Codax's Poetic Texture in Selected Writings, vol. 6, part I).

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 3, The Coming of War 1936 - 1939

      William Heinemann Ltd. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - sixteen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. This is the rarest, most keenly sought, and most prohibitive to acquire of the Official Biography Companion volumes.  There was just a single printing in England and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many Official Biography sets will forever do without.  The third is the rarest of the three Volume V Companions. Here is the British first edition, only printing, an excellent, near-fine plus example in a near-fine plus dust jacket.  The red cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and bright gilt.  Flaws are trivial - a bit of wrinkling at the spine ends and a hint of scuffing to the fore edge of the front cover.  The contents are immaculately bright and clean.  No spotting.  No previous ownership names or bookplates.  No soiling.  The red-stained top edge retains perfect, deep, uniform and entirely unfaded color.  The dust jacket is bright, clean, and unclipped, still bearing the original front flap price.  We note no tears or losses.  The only trivial flaw detected is a hint of wrinkling, primarily at the extreme spine ends, which virtually disappears beneath the removable, archival quality clear dust jacket protector.  Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage.  Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e3

The set comprises: Vol. I: Youth 1874-1900 (1966); Vol. II: Young Statesman 1901-1914 (1967); Vol. III: 1914-1916 (1971); Vol. IV: 1917-1922 (1975); Vol. V: 1922-1939 (1976); Vol. VI: Finest Hour 1939-1941 (1983); Vol. VII: Road to Victory 1941-1945 (1986); Vol. VIII: Never Despair 1945-1965 (1988). Arguably the most important official biography of the twentieth century.
