        BACKBONE OF THE KING

      - BROWN,MARCIA. BACKBONE OF THE KING: the story of Paka'a and his son Ku. Honolulu: Univ. of Hawaii Press (1966, 1984). 4to, 180p., cloth, fine in dust wrapper. Originally published by Scribner in 1966, this edition is INSCRIBED BY BROWN to a person who helped her with the original edition of the book: "To Margaret, Our old labors in a new color, but looking good because of your lovely work. With much love, Marcia." SOLD WITH A CLOTH FOLDER HOLDING A COMPLETE SET OF THE LINOLEUM BLOCK PRINTS USED IN THE BOOK, PULLED ON JAPANESE TISSUE AND EACH SIGNED BY BROWN! The inscription on the prints has the title in Marcia Brown's hand, giving the folder to Margaret A. Evans signed and dated June 1966. The text of the book retells an ancient Hawaiian legend of a brave young boy who endeavors to restore his father to his position of royal guardian to the king. It is based on a 19th century version of the story by Moses Nakuina. Brown discovered the legend on a trip to Hawaii and spent 12 months painting in preparation for the book. The prints are stunning and each one is signed by Brown. This is an amazing offering of work by a great Caldecott Award winning children's illustrator. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        [Folk Art]: Wooden Scroll Work Patriotic Picture Frame with Photos of American Servicemen

      Very Good. Elaborate scrollwork folk art display which houses photographs of seven American serviceman, presumably all members of the same family, who served in the military during World War II or the Vietnam War. While the servicemen are not identified, the dates of their individual service are written in ballpoint ink on the sides of each image (four during WWII and three from the early stages of the Vietnam War, with the last date being 1966). The patriotic motif encompasses several hand cut elements: an American eagle, several American flags, the motto "God Bless America," and an American patriotic shield or crest, amongst which are seven separate spaces, each containing a photograph of an American serviceman in uniform. All of these elements have been affixed to an elaborately scroll-sawed background piece, which in turn has been affixed to burlap in a homemade shadow box-type frame that has been glazed. It is not clear whether this is a memorial piece or just commemorates the service of various family members. A few small breaks on the scrolled wood background, a couple of the photos show some exposure to light, but overall stable and very good or better. A fascinating patriotic artifact encompassing two generations of American military men.

        All the Assholes in the World and Mine

      Bensenville, Ill: Open Skull Press, 1966. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good. Saddle-stitch staple bound mauve wraps, printed in black. First edition, and one of only 400 copies. Very Good or better, with faint, uneven sunning to wraps, light stress creases at staples and spine. A ground-breaking work in the micro-genre of dirty old men named Charles recounting their hemorrhoid surgery, which some say paved the way for Charles Willeford's 1977 memoir, A Guide to the Undehemorrhoided. Despite these men's bold efforts, it remains virtually impossible to this day to correctly spell the word "hemorrhoid" without the help of auto-spell check--a luxury neither Bukowski nor Willeford enjoyed.

Designed and printed by John Dearstyne. Prefatory comments by George Sadek, who noted that "it is sometimes difficult to draw a line between the contributions, as well as the final responsibilities, of the poet and the typographer." (Kathleen McCullough, Concrete Poetry: An Annotated International Bibliography (Troy, NY: Whitston Publishing Co., 1989), 592).The meaning of such poetry is "conceived by the poet and interpreted by the typographer" in a manner analogous "to the stage performance of a play." Poems printed from line cuts (type from photo compositor). The poet, Mary Ellen Solt (1920-2007), was well known for helping disseminate the art of concrete poetry, having begun to write it herself in the early 1960s. Important book. Pages French-fold.

        "The Use of Ascorbic Acid in Preventing and Treating Disease," Autograph Manuscript Signed, 26 individual sheets of lined paper, 4to, "Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine," Menlo Park, CA, n.d. but 1970s

      Pauling makes a clear argument for the use of Vitamin C to protect against the common cold. He offers a chronological review of research throughout this readable paper suggesting that Vitamin C research was ignored in favor of promoting sulfa based drugs and antibiotics. Pauling notes in the corner of the title page that the document is 2200 words long. The title page contains Pauling's signature as the author of the paper, "Linus Pauling" and in the title of the Pauling Institute. Fine condition throughout with paper clip rust marks on the title and final pages, written on every other line in a legible hand. "When pure L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) became available about forty years ago many studies were carried out to obtain information about its value in improving health and protecting against disease. It was soon shown that an intake of a few milligrams per day sufficed to prevent the development of scurvy in most people This fact is the basis for the value of the recommended allowance (the RDA now 45 mg for an adult) of the Food and Nutrition Board of the United States National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council...." Other scientists asked "what daily intake would lead to the best of health" and whether "large doses would be helpful in the treatment of existing diseases...For some time there was considerable use of large doses of ascorbic acid and of other vitamins in the treatment of patients. A change of attitude then occurred. It began to be said that a high intake of ascorbic acid had no value in the prevention or treatment of the common cold or any other disease...." He quotes the conclusion of this research and disagrees. "The statement that these claims have not withstood the test of time is wrong...the nutritional and medical authorities decided to ignore the evidence...." He explains that there was greater interest in "sulfa drugs and antibiotics, with their great effectiveness and reliability against infectious diseases contributed to the loss of interest in Vitamin C and other vitamins...." He offers some of his personal history studying Vitamin C beginning in 1966, referencing research papers and his 1970 book which summarized this research, "Vitamin C and the Common Cold." In the next section titled, "The Common Cold," Pauling reviews the research on Vitamin C's efficacy. "Many people have been misled by unjustified and unsupported statements that studies of ascorbic and the common cold have given negative results ...." After he presents examples from research papers he argues that tables were inaccurately interpreted. "Moreover, there was a serious flaw in the design of the study. The administration of tablets was stopped on average of three days after the onset of the colds, and the colds lasted an average of five days longer. We know that when a large intake of ascorbic acid is suddenly stopped the concentration in the blood drops for a few days to an abnormally low level...the abnormally low concentration of ascorbic acid decreases the effectiveness of the mechanisms of protection and may lead to exacerbation of the viral infection and the development of a secondary bacterial infection...." "The Action of Ascorbic Acid," is the title of the next section. Pauling's thesis in this section is that ascorbic acid stimulates and strengthens the body's "natural defense mechanisms." He references the relevant research papers and indicates that in a particular hospital some "surgical patients and intensive-care patients...now receive 6 to 10g of ascorbic acid per day...." He notes the source of this information is "personal communication" from the doctor. Pauling titles the final section, "Summary and Conclusion." "The evidence is now overwhelming that an increased intake of ascorbic acid provides a significant amount of protection against the common cold...the optimum daily intake...probably lies between 1g and 10g for most people (Pauling 1974)...Ascorbic acid has very low toxicity and few side effects...." Finally Pauling recommends that more "trials" should be done because Vitamin C's potential "is so great.".

Signed by Doctorow on title page. About Fine (light soiling to spine and upper cover), square, tight and bright; Fine jacket, quite striking. "[T]wo giant humanoids from another time continuum appear in New York Harbor and, while they pose no immediate threat because of their incredible slowness, the city panics, the social order collapses and a newly formed government agency uses the crisis in ways that hint at totalitarianism. Though of stylistic interest for its vivid evocation of the different language registers of the characters, the novel is weakly structured and its various strands never quite merge into a coherent vision."

        Sable Mouvant.

      Paris Louis Broder 1966 - Folio (49.5 x 39.5 cm). 113 of 255 copies. Title, limitation page with printed number signed in pencil by artist, text, 10 aquatints on Rives paper, loose as issued in paper wrappers with tissues. Original vellum wrapper, title printed on cover, cloth-covered protective boards and slipcase, vellum spine with title, all within original cardboard slip case. Limited edition signed in pencil by the artist. Sable Mouvant (which means 'quicksand') is set in the desert and relates a series of psychological struggles and hallucinations. Picasso's illustrations are masterful and capture the intensity of the poetry, transporting the viewer out of reality in order to reveal the inner turmoil of a helpless man in harsh surroundings. Louis Broder had initially thought to entrust the illustration of the poem, Pierre Reverdy's final work, to the artist Jacques Villon, and to publish it as part of a collection. On Reverdy's death, however, Broder decided that the work warranted its own separate publication, illustrated by Picasso in homage to his great friend. Cramer 136.

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, full set of 8 main text volumes, including two volumes inscribed and dated by Sir Martin Gilbert and one signed limited issue volume

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co., 1966. First edition. Hardcover. This is a full, U.S. first edition set of the main text volumes of Winston Churchill's Official Biography, signed by the author in three volumes. Volumes III and IV were both inscribed for the same Churchill enthusiast (from whom we acquired the set) during his visit at Sir Martin's home on 9 April 2011. The inscription at the head of each title page reads: “To Todd, | with the author's regards | Martin Gilbert”. Lower on the Volume III title page Sir Martin inked “9 April 2011” and on the Volume IV lower title page “London | 9 April 2011”. Volume VII – the volume that covers the 1941-1945 war years and the majority of Churchill's wartime premiership, is one of five hundred first American editions issued with a limitation page preceding the half-title printed “THIS IS A SPECIAL SIGNED EDITION | LIMITED TO FIVE HUNDRED COPIES” and is signed directly below: “Martin Gilbert”. The set features near fine or better volumes in dust jackets that vary from very good minus to near fine. The bindings are uniformly square, clean, and tight. All eight volumes are first edition, first printing. The contents show no spotting or previous ownership marks other than the aforementioned author's inscriptions and signatures. The jackets are clean and complete, all eight retaining the publisher's original front flap price. Apart from light wear to extremities, the only appreciable flaws are some scuffing to the Volume I hinges and rear fold, and sunning to the Volume III and Volume IV spines. All eight jackets are protected beneath removable, clear mylar covers. The Official Biography was begun by Winston's son, Randolph Churchill (1911-1968), and completed by Sir Martin Gilbert (1936-2015). In 1962, at the age of 25, Martin Gilbert joined Churchill's biography team, then led by Churchill's son Randolph. Of what became his life's work, Gilbert says: "I'd thought I'd last four or five months." Instead, when Randolph died in 1968 with only two of the eight volumes completed, Gilbert took over, committing a substantial portion of his scholarship and life's work to documenting, comprehending, and communicating what Gilbert called the "remarkable and versatile life" of Winston Churchill. The result is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life. Both British and U.S. first editions of the eight main text volumes were originally published between 1966 and 1988. These substantial main text volumes comprise the narrative story of Churchill's life. The British first editions were bound in solid red cloth. These U.S. editions were more elaborately bound, with tan linen spines over blue buckram boards with blue spine title blocks printed in red and gilt. The bindings also feature head and foot bands and red ruled transitions at the border between the tan linen and blue buckram. The final three volumes were issued in illustrated dust jackets, while the dust jackets of the first five volumes were issued in un-illustrated solid colors, similar to their British first edition counterparts. These eight U.S. first edition main text volumes make an impressive shelf presence, consuming 17 inches of shelf space and weighing 27 pounds. Each of the main text volumes was accompanied by additional scholarship in the form of either two or three volumes of documents, titled “Companion” volumes. Sixteen of these document volumes were completed before Sir Martin Gilbert's death. Work on the document volumes for the final decades of Churchill's life continues today under the aegis of Hillsdale College. Please note that this is a large and heavy set that will likely require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A301a-h.

        Primary Structures: Younger American and British Sculptors.

      The Jewish Museum., New York. 1966 - Exhibition catalogue. Primary Structures was the first American museum exhibition to survey the style now known as Minimalism. The exhibition introduced the public to such artists as Carl Andre, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Walter De Maria, Robert Morris, Anne Truitt, and others, figures unknown at the time but soon to become synonymous with a radically new approach to sculpture. The pivotal 1966 exhibition was organised by Kynaston McShine, then Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Jewish Museum, who would later become Curator of Exhibitions of The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Critically acclaimed for its breakthrough approach to this new geometric and formally reductive artistic practice, the 1966 show also assumed a prominent place in the history of exhibition-making by ushering in a new style of presenting ideas and objects in relation to space. Primary Structures focused exclusively on artists based in the United States and Britain. Featuring the work of seminal artists like Tony Smith, Gerald Laing, Carl Andre, Donald Judd, Robert Morris, and Sol LeWitt, the exhibition included a bounty of large-scale geometric sculptural abstraction. The artist Mark di Suvero called the exhibition, which was both a critical and a media success, "the key show of the 1960s." It popularised the idea of the artist as designer rather than craftsmen, and introduced an entirely new visual lexicon to Western art history. Black-and-white illustrations throughout. pp. (52). Original iconic wrappers designed by Elaine Lustig Cohen. Lower corners slightly bumped and creased, otherwise a very good copy. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Big As Life [Signed]

      Simon & Schuster, New York 1966 - First Printing of Doctorow's second novel and scarcest book, never reprinted and later orphaned by the author (his web site makes no mention of this title). 8vo: (6),218pp. Publisher's crimson cloth, spine stamped in gilt, top edge stained crimson, cream-colored typographic jacket printed in red, green, and black and priced $4.95. Signed by Doctorow on title page. About Fine (light soiling to spine and upper cover), square, tight and bright; Fine jacket, quite striking. "[T]wo giant humanoids from another time continuum appear in New York Harbor and, while they pose no immediate threat because of their incredible slowness, the city panics, the social order collapses and a newly formed government agency uses the crisis in ways that hint at totalitarianism. Though of stylistic interest for its vivid evocation of the different language registers of the characters, the novel is weakly structured and its various strands never quite merge into a coherent vision." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        'Way back when wool was 20/- a lb'. A very large collage comprising 47 original individual caricatures of well-known pastoral identities ('Portrait sketches by Bushwaka' - black ink on paper, mounted on heavy card)

      The sketches range between 100-140 mm high and 70-90 mm wide (two are smaller); they are mounted in five roughly straight lines, with their names and regional addresses (or rural industry employers) added in ballpoint pen to the mount. It is behind glass in its original and appropriately rustic white-painted wooden frame (external dimensions 770 x 970 mm, visible image size 595 x 800 mm). There is a Royal Easter Show Art Prize Exhibitions label on the verso, identifying the artist as Frank F. Forster, 10 Walker Ave, Narrabeen. The asking price on the label was $100, indicating it was exhibited on this occasion after the introduction of decimal currency (February 1966), but it looks earlier (perhaps 1940s-50s - just count the hats!). Whether this was the artist's intention, or whether it is indeed a product of an earlier time, we cannot say, but it certainly hits the spot. These are not just caricatures, they are clearly characters, presumably mates of Bushwaka himself: Cunningham Henderson of Casino; O.O.H. Dangar of Narrandera; C.J. Chisholm of Khancoban; A.H. Jeffreys and D.H. McKay of Delegate; Bert Parkes of Collarenabri; Mick Raleigh and Jack Watts of Wagga; E.H. Turner of Gunning ... and on it goes. Cunningham Henderson died at the age of 89 in December 1954; although he is depicted as an elderly gentleman in this group portrait, there is no sense of 'In Memoriam' about it. The last word on the subject goes to Year Book Australia 2000 (page 447): 'Prosperity in the wool industry peaked in 1950-51 when the average greasy wool price reached 144.19 pence per pound'.

"Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Miró, Braque, Dubuffet, Léger, Giacometti ... have enriched their own expressions and contemporary art a new area of ??research.

        [L'artiste à l'oeuvre, Betzalel sculpte l'Arche] Bezaleel made two Cherubims of golde, and the Cherubims spread out their wings, their faces were one towards another. Likewise he made the Candlesticke of pure golde. (Betsaleel fit deux chérubins d'or; Et les Chérubins étendaient leurs ailes, et leur visages se faisaient face. De même il a fait le Chandelier d'or pur) - The Story of Exodus

      Original lithograph in colors, one of 15 proofs on Japon Impérial paper reserved for the artist and his collaborators, the only printing along with 20 more on Japan and 250 on Arches paper. Unsigned proof, as with all the proofs in this series except the frontispiece.A superb proof on Japan paper produced especially for The Story of Exodus, which appeared in 1966 ; the 24 hors-texte lithographs printed by Mourlot were by Chagall.Fernand Mourlot was undoubtedly the finest lithographer of the 20th century and was thus both printer to, and friend of, the greatest artists of his time. "Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Miró, Braque, Dubuffet, Léger, Giacometti...enriched both their own personal work and contemporary art itself with a new field of research. With Mourlot, and thanks to him, lithography gained both a personality and a future."  (Pierre Cabanne, in Cinquante années de lithographie).Having already printed the two volumes of the Bible illustrated by Chagall, Mourlot contributed to the artist's training in the art of lithography during the 1950s. It was during this period that Chagall began to frequent Mourlot's workshop in order to learn about lithographic technique and that he began to make friends with various lithographers, notably Charles Sorlier.It was thus at the peak of his artistic powers that Chagall produced this story of Exodus, which coincided with the end of his immense lithographic and pictorial labors on the Bible, begun in 1930 at the behest of Ambroise Vollard. This decorative cycle, titled The Biblical Message was later to serve as the basis for the founding of the Musée Marc Chagall, originally known as the Musée national du message biblique Marc-Chagall.. This illustration of an episode that features as an anecdote in Exodus stands slightly apart in the series, since it focuses on the artist above all else, in whom "the Lord placed the wisdom and intelligence to know and to act."Whether a self-portrait of the artist as a young Israelite or homage to a painter whose influence was key, this lithograph evokes - both by its subject and its composition - Chagall's old friend, Pablo Picasso. We can see the dove, fauns, and the deconstruction of the human face so typical of the Cubist genius, of whom Chagall said (after their break in 1964): "What a genius, that Picasso is. It's a pity he doesn't paint." A very rare original proof printed on Japan paper, the most attractive sort, and the finest for color engraving. AMIEL Léon Paris,New-York 1966 36x49.5cm une feuille
