        Per Grazia Ricevuta

      (Milan: Giorgio Upiglio, 1966). (11)ff. From an edition of 120 signed copies, this is one of twenty reserved for friends of the author and publisher. A presentation copy inscribed to social-realist artist Ben Shahn, considered to be one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, and his wife: “For Ben and Bernarda / With joy and love / Leo.” A shaped picture book featuring eleven die-cut leaves with double-sided lithographs of stylized women in profile. The pages are cut to various widths so that the faces overlap in different ways as the pages are turned. The front and rear covers show only hair: the back of the women’s heads. Lionni is best-known as an illustrator of children’s books and a four-time Caldecott Honoree, but, with the support of Marinetti, he began his artistic career as a Futurist painter while living in Italy. He emigrated to the United States during World War II, where he achieved success and acclaim working in advertising and graphic design, most notably as art director for Time/Life magazines. He returned to Italy in the 1960s, and it is there that he created his first book for children. Quarter purple cloth with a matching chemise, and housed in the publisher’s gray card slipcase. Spine of slipcase and chemise slightly faded; the shaped book is in extremely fine condition.

        Joseph Solman

      New York: Crown Publishers, 1966. First Edition. Quarto (28cm). Green cloth boards lettered in red; dustjacket; 16pp text, 240 plates. Inscribed on front endpaper: "To my favorite American artist, Ben Shahn, from a fellow-artist, Joseph Solman," undated. From the library of Ben and Bernarda Bryson Shahn, with estate label tipped on to front pastedown.& & Solman (1909-2008) rose to prominence in the 1930s as a painter of semi-abstract cityscapes, and became associated with the group "The Ten," which included Adolph Gottlieb and Mark Rothko. In the forties he became the art critic for the communist journal Masses & Mainstream, which had always portrayed Shahn positively as "the most mature, consistent and satisfying of the American social painters." Both artists had moved in rather different directions by the mid 1950s, and it is gratifying to see that Solman still held Shahn in such high regard late in his career.

        'You Only Live Twice' (released through United Artists). Six original photographs for 'Cinema 66' magazine

      n.d. [25th August 1966], 25. Six original black and white photographs of Sean Connery as James Bond, taken on location in Japan during the filming of Ian Fleming's You Only Live Twice. Three photos capture a relaxed Connery in full Japanese costume, in between takes. The other three photos were taken on the actor's 36th birthday, which took place on set; one shows Connery in the daytime wearing a simple fisherman's costume whilst cutting a cake, and the remaing two show him at an evening party, with 'Happy Birthday' banners, dancing in a Kimono. Director Lewis Gilbert appears in two of the images, as does the Assistant Director Bill Cartlidge. Many thanks to John Gilbert, son of Lewis Gilbert, for assisting this cataloguer (Jon Gilbert) in person on 12th June 2012. Approx. dimensions 30 x 24cm. Fine condition. These are FILE images, taken for a French film magazine 'Cinema 66', and bear the Italian photographer's credit 'Copyright Pierluigi' to the verso. Each print also bears the distributor's stamp 'APIS - PARIS' and has an extensive text on the rear, typed in French. These were obtained when the archives of the publication were dispersed; it is most likely these are the only such prints, the negatives for which are likely no longer in existence. Quite possibly a unique set of images, from the vintage, Golden-era of the cinematic James Bond. Sold without copyright.

Folio. 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 amazing window into the life of Swinging Sixties London. .

        Sweet Life

      M. DuMont Schauberg Köln: M. DuMont Schauberg, (1966). First German edition. Hardcover. g. Large square quarto. [26],179pp. Black cloth with signature of artist stamped in white on front cover in original photographic dust jacket. Photographic endpapers. Fascinating pictorial account of Dutch photographer Ed Van der Elsken's 1960 trip to Asia and North America. The work is profusely illustrated with b/w reproductions of photographs focusing on the daily life of people in these countries. The artist succeeds in capturing the joy, as well as the hardship of its inhabitants. The work was published worldwide in 7 editions. "Van der Elsken hat weder sogenannte Sehenswürdigkeiten noch Landschaften fotografiert; das überläßt er anderen. Sie tauchen zwar in seinen Fotos auch auf, aber das Hauptaugenmerk des Fotografen wie seiner Kamera galt immer dem Menschen, seinem Leiden und Glück, der Vielfalt des Lebens, das er voll Verständnis und Teilnahme und gerade deshalb aufrichtig und ehrlich bis zur Brutalität notierte." Inside of top and bottom edge of dj repaired. Text in German. Creasing, chipping and closed tears on edges of dj. Minor sunning on head and tail of spine. Finger smudges on bottom corner of few pages, otherwise a tight copy with dj in fair to poor, book in very good to near fine condition. "Sweet Life is a sprawling, exuberant cornucopia, a preview of the pure stream-of-consciousness, machine-gun approach that would soon come with the Japanese Provoke photographers. And like the Provoke aesthetic, Van der Elsken's work has its dark and pessimistic undertones, although in Sweet Life bold, frantic energies predominate." (Parr/Badger, vol. I, p.255).

         “I guess that’s one thing I have in common with Harry Truman. I believe in sticking by my friends!”

      Typed Letter Signed “Dick,” one page, 7.25” x 10.5”. New York, March 25, 1966. To Earl Mazo. Written on Nixon’s personal stationery, with his law firm’s address. Two tiny staple holes in upper left. Fine condition. In full, “Your note of March 22 was appreciated but not at all necessary. I guess that’s one thing I have in common with Harry Truman. I believe in sticking by my friends!” It was well-known that Harry Truman did not have a high opinion of Richard Nixon. Truman said to writer Merle Miller in his “Oral Biography of Harry S. Truman” (1974), “He's one of the few in the history of this country to run for high office talking out of both sides of his mouth at the same time and lying out of both sides.” And, in 1951, then Senator Nixon had asserted that the Truman “administration has proved that it is utterly incapable of cleaning out the corruption which has completely eroded it and reestablishing the confidence and faith of the American people in the morality and honesty of their government employees.” During World War II, Earl Mazo (1919-2007) was a reporter for “Stars and Stripes” newspaper in Europe. After the war, he worked at newspapers in New Jersey and served one year in the Truman administration as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense. In 1951, he joined the “New York Herald Tribune,” working in New York until 1956, when he moved to Washington. In 1964, Mazo left the “Herald Tribune” for “The New York Times” as national political editor but after a year switched to “The Reader's Digest” where he was a roving correspondent. Earl Mazo was one of Nixon’s good friends. In 1959, Mazo had written “Richard Nixon: A Political and Personal Portrait.” Favorable to Eisenhower’s Vice President, the biography was reissued and updated in 1968 for Nixon’s presidential campaign. In 1960, Mazo was sure that Nixon had defeated Kennedy. From Mazo’s 2007 obituary in “The New York Times,” in part, “When John F. Kennedy won the 1960 presidential race against Nixon, Mazo felt strongly that the Democrats had stolen the election, telling the ‘Washington Post’ in 2000: ‘There's no question in my mind that it was stolen. It was stolen like mad. It was stolen in Chicago and in Texas.’ Tipped off by reporters in Chicago, Mazo went to the Windy City, obtained lists of voters in precincts that seemed suspicious and started checking their addresses. ‘There was a cemetery where the names on the tombstones were registered and voted,’ he recalled. ‘I remember a house. It was completely gutted. There was nobody there. But there were 56 votes for Kennedy in that house.’ “At the urging of Chicago Democrats, Mazo went to Republican areas downstate and looked for fraud there. He found it, but on a smaller scale than in Chicago. He then headed to Texas, where he documented similar Democratic electoral shenanigans. Mazo began writing what he and his editors envisioned as a 12-part series on election fraud. By mid-December 1960, he had published four of the parts, which were reprinted in papers across the country. Nixon called and asked Mazo to stop writing his series because the country couldn’t afford a constitutional crisis at the height of the Cold War. ‘I thought he was kidding, but he was serious,’ Mazo told the ‘Post.’ Failing to persuade Mazo, Nixon called the reporter’s bosses at the ‘Herald Tribune’ and implored them to stop running the series. The editors pulled him off the story.”

        The Wrong Venus (First Edition, inscribed to John D. MacDonald)

      New American Library NAL New York: New American Library (NAL), 1966. First Edition. First Edition. INSCRIBED by the author on the front endpaper to fellow mystery writer John D. MacDonald: "To John D. / With admiration / Charlie." A brief but eloquent inscription, linking two of the best hard-boiled mystery writers of a generation. Williams also wrote the screenplay for the 1968 film adaptation, "Don't Just Stand There!" starring Robert Wagner and Mary Tyler Moore. Williams is best known for his books "Dead Calm," "Aground," and "The Sailcloth Shroud." Like other hard-boiled authors, much of his output came in the form of paperback originals, and his books are seldom found inscribed, this being only the second such copy we have seen. On top of that, a stellar association. Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. A lovely copy.
