Many of the letters refer to Gish's time in Italy while shooting The Comedians (based on the Graham Greene novel), describing the difficult conditions of working there. 1 GISH, LILLIAN.

D. keeps improving- yesterday she went to town in the morning to have her hair washed then we had her out in the car for several hours but today she must be kept in bed after a sleepless night and no food. It is always that way. All goes well for a while then back she goes, losing a little, each time. But much improved over last month. How exciting that Balanchine has seen Miss Moore. I feel in my bones that all will go her way there. Tell her how proud I am to be her friend. I sent Gladys a bag like one I carried that she said she liked. They wouldn't let me put a card in because of customs. The [ ] column I keep to amuse all the visitors at Villa Chiara. Good to have her and the others to read instead of the Post. The theatre is up to the same old thing! Tom calls from Paris -- keeps saying he will be down but never comes. When I can leave here -- I don't know -- when she looks to Laura instead of me for strength. There is only 90 pounds of her left. [ ] Miss Moore love to Gladys and you. Enjoy the [ ] book and play. Devotedly, Lillian." (Gladys Moore was Loos's housekeeper and "Miss Moore" her grand-daughter whom Loos virtually adopted as a child after a housefire destroyed her home). 3 GISH, LILLIAN.

        The Collected Scientific Papers of Paul A Samuelson Volumes I

      Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 1966. First edition, early printing of Volume I of the Nobel Prize-winning economists papers. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the title page, "For Doug Burrows, Paul A. Samuelson, Endicott House, June 21, 1972." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. "It is a measure of Professor Samuelson's preeminence that the sheer scale of his work should be so much taken for granted," observes a reviewer in the "Economist" who goes on to note that "a cynic might add that it would have been better for Professor Samuelson to write less merely to give others a chance to write at all." In fact, Samuelson's output, his "extraordinary mastery of methods, both mathematical and linguistic" (review of Volume 4 of "The Collected Scientific Papers"), have not diminished. Volumes 1 through 4 encompass more than 280 articles. The first two contain virtually all of Samuelson's contributions to economic theory through mid-1964; Volume 3 contains all the scientific papers written from mid-1964 through 1970, and the last volume brings his work up to through 1976.

        1966 Tax Return - Henry Miller's Personal File Copies (45 pages) / PLUS Unique IRS Document from 1967 Signed by Henry Miller

      Not Published, No Place 1966 - Henry Miller's own PERSONAL FILE COPIES of his 1966 TAX RETURN. Plus 2nd related item, single page 1967 IRS document, SIGNED by Henry Miller. TWO ITEMS sold together. THE FIRST ITEM is the unique 1966 Tax Return file consisting of 45 pages (47pp total). Includes Accountant's Filing Instructions (1pp); Federal Form 1040 (22pp); California State Form 540 (18pp); U.S. Gift Tax Return (4pp); + Income Royalties List (2pp). Housed in original yellow mailing envelope with accountant's printed label, addressed in type to Henry Miller at his Los Angeles residence (Ocampo Drive, Pacific Palisades). In green marker someone (presumably Henry Miller?) has written "1966 - Tax Returns" in bold across the address label. File also includes 2 additional pages: copy of the original Butterfield's catalog auction listing, + TLS by the dealer who initially bought the Butterfield's lot verifying authenticity. The tax file was originally sold from Miller's personal files as lot 9097 in the Butterfield's Fine Books & Manuscripts Auction, held Sept. 26, 2000, in Los Angeles & San Fran. This is Miller's own unsigned FILE COPY, with accountant's ink stamp "Client's Copy" to key pages. The original signed tax returns would have been sent to the IRS, of course. This item for sale was retained by Henry Miller in his personal files (not signed). Consists of mostly photocopied pages, several stamped in ink "Client's Copy", except for 3 original documents: Accountant's Filing Instructions (w/penciled figures), Gift Tax Return; Donor's Gift Tax Return (all stamped "Client's Copy"). The "Income-Royalties 1966" handwritten copied sheets (2pp) contain entries from a ledger which include fascinating details such as Miller's publisher royalties (Grove, New Directions, Viking, etc.); advance monies paid on "Sexus"; 1965 royalties collected on "Plexus" & "Nexus"; royalties for "Cancer, Capricorn, Bk Spring"; advance amount on "Quiet Days in Clichy", etc. Interesting details include alimony money paid to Eve Miller Ross (Eve, Miller's 4th wife died in 1965, they divorced in 1961), Miller's medical expenses, monies spent on art supplies, publisher fees, etc. Includes 6 copied letters re donations Miller made during 1966 (mostly art items). All in fine condition. THE SECOND ITEM is a related IRS document from the following year, 1967, single printed page w/typed-in entries, titled "Offer of Waiver of Restrictions on Assessment and Collection of Deficiency in Tax and of Acceptance of Overassessment", SIGNED in black ink by Henry Miller & dated 1/29/67. U.S. Treasury Dept IRS FORM 870-AD. The typed Name of Taxpayer listed as "Rellim Productions, Inc." (Rellim is Miller in reverse), c/o a Los Angeles address. Typed below Miller's signature: "HENRY MILLER, constituting the holder of a majority of the voting stock as of the time of its dissolution". Unique related IRS tax form, 1 year following the above tax return. He'd moved to Ocampo Drive in Pacific Palisades in 1963. (From Ferguson: Henry Miller, a Life, p.351): "More than anything else he ever did, the move from the rustic simplicity of Big Sur to this wealthy suburb (Pacific Palisades) surprised those who thought they knew Miller well. His sudden interest in the problem of income tax also seemed at odds with the contemptuous indifference with which he had formerly regarded money. He quickly discovered a tax dodge that enabled him to combine business with pleasure, and soon after moving into Ocampo Drive began producing huge quantities of water-colours for donation to non-profit organizations. Between March & July 1963 he'd churned out 115 such paintings, & was hoping for an appraisal of between $200 & $250 apiece from tax authorities. Emil White wrote it was 'unbelievable what this tax business has done to him. Who would have ever dreamed that HM would show so much concern over such matters'.". Interesting documents from a pivotal period in Henry Miller's life. RARE. Fascinating & unique archive of material. Size: 28 x [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Original Painting for the Artists Tower of Protest (also known as: "The Peace Tower")

      - Original painting for the 1966 "Artists Tower of Protest" (also known as "The Peace Tower"). Approximately 24" x 24". Signed on the rear "Angela Kosta" on an affixed label with her Chicago address. Modest corner wear, but near fine. The painting in white, orange, and red, depicts a figure hugging its knees, confined in a triangle which is itself within a circle. The Peace Tower was a 58-foot steel tetrahedron erected in 1966 on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles to protest the Vietnam War. This two-foot by two-foot work on plywood, painted by artist Angela Driessen-Kosta, was one of 418 panels that were attached to the structure designed by the sculptor Mark di Suvero. Artists from around the world contributed to the tower, including Elaine de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Rauschenberg (who provided the bulk of the funding to complete the work).According to Driessen-Kosta: "My intention was to create an 'anti-war' poster. The central figure is expressing grief and is in a confined or 'hopeless' space. The bright colors were used to attract attention but also resemble a 'stop sign' as in stop wars." She received a degree in art education from Western Michigan University and did postgraduate work at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She was a photographic set and window display designer in Chicago for 16 years, then moved to San Diego in 1979, where she mounted numerous exhibitions and received a variety of awards. Her artwork is primarily mixed media and sculptural assemblages. The Peace Tower was dedicated on February 26, 1966 with speeches by Susan Sontag, Irving Petlin, and former Green Beret Donald Duncan. During the three months it stood, the tower and artists were continually under attack. Volunteers from Watts, the recent scene of race riots, assisted in defending it. Efforts were made to relocate the work to another permanent location, but none were successful. Ultimately, the tower itself was dismantled and cut up, the artworks were wrapped in brown paper and anonymously auctioned off by The Los Angeles Peace Center, raising $12,000, according to *Art, Politics and Dissent: Aspects of the Art Left in Sixties America* (2000) by Francis Frascina. The Peace Tower was controversial for more than just its unpopular position against the Vietnam War. It represented the first instance of American artists coming together to create a collective work of art in political protest. "In order to fully contextualize the Peace Tower as well as other efforts artists would make to combine art and politics in their work from 1966 onward, one must understand how such efforts would have been undesirable and unwelcome in the American fine arts system of the 1960s," wrote Matthew Israel in his book *Kill for Peace: American Artist Against the Vietnam War* (2013). The Tower is also now a model for organizing collective artistic endeavors.In 2006, the Whitney Museum staged a recreation of the tower in protest of the War in Iraq, and Driessen-Kosta was among the few original Peace Tower artists invited to contribute to this work. A bright and vivid depiction of Vietnam Anti-War art. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

One continuous accordion-fold page composed of glued paper segments extending to 296 ½" in length housed in a white paper and silver Mylar-over-cardboard slipcase. "Every Building on the Sunset Strip" is Ed Ruscha's innovative 1966 photographic study that pictures sequentially each architectural facade on both the North and South sides of the fabled Sunset Strip from 8101 - the still extant Jaguar dealership - to 9156 - the late, great Schwab's Pharmacy. Pandora's Box lives! An internally bright, handsome example of the 1970 second printing (entry B4 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999", and whose 1966 edition is cited on pages 142-143 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 198-199 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and pages 182-185 of "The Book of 101 Books") limited to five thousand unnumbered copies showing a tiny crimp at the base of the spine along with soiling and a soft crease along the spine of the external wrappers.

        Old Maids Remember (2 Signed Typed Letters glued in)

      Peter Davies, London 1966 - A very good copy bound finely woven black paper-covered boards. Stamped brightly in gold on the spine. Vertical abrasion strips on the front and rear paste-downs where the dust jacket was once taped down. Name and date (Dorothy Bates/ Sept. 1966) in orange marker on the front endpaper. The jacket is good only with several closed tears, soiling, and beige tape strips along the edges of the flaps. This copy, however, has two typed letters signed by "Daphne du Maurier" and Daphne du Maurier Browning", respectively; the first is glued onto the title page, and the second is a full-page letter glued to page ix just after the Acknowledgments page. The first letter on the title page is 7 typed lines signed in ink: ‘Do ask Mr. Robinson of the Sowerby Bridge Public Library if he has a copy of my Fowey sister’s book, just out, called "Old Maids Remember." It is delightful, and you would love it, full of glimpses of our younger days, and amusing photographs of the three of us. With best wishes always, Yours very sincerely "Daphne du Maurier" (blue ink) The second letter after the acknowledgments is 17 typed lines signed in blue ink: "Daphne du Maurier Browning": "So glad you liked my sister’s book. I shall tell her when she next comes to lunch. She comes once a week, generally on Sundays, but she is a much busier person than I am, on her parish council, Conservative committees, good works, and does a tremendous amount locally. I love to fancy the three of us are a bit Bronte-ish as sisters, with Angela as Charlotte, myself the solitary one as Emily meeting no one (!) and Jeanne the youngest, who became Catholic, and draws so well, and is musical, is Anne! Keep up the sleuth-work over the Branwell note-book, and think of me next week surrounded by grandchildren and no doubt slipping away in to the woods now and again to get some peace! Yours very sincerely, "Daphne du Maurier Browning" (in bright blue ink) Angela du Maurier (1904 – 2002) was an English novelist who also wrote two volumes of autobiography, It's Only the Sister(1951) and Old Maids Remember. She was the sister of Daphne du Maurier. The eldest of three daughters of the famous actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and actress Muriel Beaumont (maternal niece of William Comyns Beaumont), she was born in St Pancras, London. Her grandfather was the author and Punch cartoonist George du Maurier, who created the character of Svengali in the novel Trilby. Although three years older than her better known sisterDaphne, she outlived her by thirteen years. Originally aspiring to follow the family tradition of acting, she planned to be an actress and spent two seasons on the stage. She played Wendy Darling alongside both Gladys Cooper and Dorothy Dickson as Peter Pan. She worked on the land inCornwall during the war and travelled extensively in Europe. She later turned to writing, with the release of her earlier works coinciding with the publication of her sister's Rebecca and Jamaica Inn. Her works of fiction include The Road to Leenane, Pilgrims by the Way, The Perplexed Heart, Reveille and Treveryan. She lived at Ferryside, the family house in Cornwall, for most of her life. She died inWandsworth, London, aged 97. (Wikipedia) First Edition with "First Published 1966" on the copyright page and no subsequent printings listed.

        [THE VERY FIRST MASTER AND MARGARITA] Master i Margarita. Roman [i.e. Master and Margarita: A Novel]

      [In:] Moskva... #11, 1966; #1, 1967. Moscow: Gosudarstvennoe izdanie khudozhstvennoi literatury, 1966-1967. Pp. 6-127 (#11, 1966), pp.56-144 pp. (#1, 1967). 24,9x16 cm. In two issues, both in original printed wrappers, with marbled edges. Very good, spines neatly restored (but without lettering «Moskva», year and # of the issue on them), close tear of p.30 in issue #11 (restored), two close tears of lower margins in issue #1(restored), hardly noticeable restoration of two tiny tears of the front cover (#1). Scarce on the market. The first printed appearance of one of the most influential novels of the 20th century. Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940) started to work on his novel in 1928 but stopped writing four weeks before his death, leaving the novel with some unfinished sentences and loose ends. His wife made several attempts to publish the novel but was able to do it only during Khrushchev's Thaw. For the first time the novel was printed in the magazine «Moskva» (i.e. Moscow) with a preface by Konstantin Simonov, afterword by Abram Vulis. It was unexpected, because the magazine was not considered at that time a stronghold of free-thinking. The most liberal magazine of the time was «Noviy mir» (i.e. New World) by Tvardovsky that famously printed Solzhenitsyn. «Moskva» was quite the opposite of that but the circulation of it was 150 thousand, and it is understandable that the novel after that became widely known. Publication was made possible thanks to Vulis' monograph where he presented Bulgakov as a very Soviet writer. Vulis was ordered an afterword. According to the unwritten rules of the time, such publications should have been prefaced with ideologically correct comments. This was done not so much to enlighten the reader as to dull the vigilance of distrustful officials from the Censor Committee. The reader, they say, will be explained that the novel «Master and Margarita» is not «against Soviet power», but «about another.» Vulis understood perfectly what they wanted from him. The editorial board decided to publish the first part of the novel in the eleventh issue of the journal for 1966. That means to quietly wait for authorities' reaction. And if everything goes well, the end of the novel is given in the first issue for the year 1967. That's why preface and afterword, both important, are published with the first chapter - if the reaction was adverse and the second part was never published. According to the researchers, more than 14,000 words were withdrawn from the text (159 censor cuts, of them 138 from the second part). People responsible for the publication of the novel not only considered it possible to erase certain words and phrases from the author's text, but also to throw out whole pieces and episodes, sometimes on many pages (for example, Nikanor Ivanovich's dream, or the scene in Torgsin). Cuts were also made in order to put the novel in the place assigned to it in the magazine («in order to save more space»). When the novel was published in the «Moskva», Bulgakov's wife signed all the changes. This was Simonov's advice: the main thing was to publish the novel, in any form. It's amusing that in «samizdat» separate typewritten lists of notes appeared, that is all pieces of text absent in the magazine publication, with an exact indication of where each missed piece should be inserted. The activity of censorship was thus exposed and pointless.

        Wide Sargasso Sea.

      Andre Deutsch, London 1966 - First edition this "tour de force" (New York Times Book Review). Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Jean Rhys. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. Introduction by Francis Wyndham. Jacket design by Eric Thomas. Rare and desirable signed. Wide Sargasso Sea, a masterpiece of modern fiction, was Jean Rhys's return to the literary center stage. She had a startling early career and was known for her extraordinary prose and haunting women characters. With Wide Sargasso Sea, her last and best-selling novel, she ingeniously brings into light one of fiction's most fascinating characters: the madwoman in the attic from Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. This mesmerizing work introduces us to Antoinette Cosway, a sensual and protected young woman who is sold into marriage to the prideful Mr. Rochester. Rhys portrays Cosway amidst a society so driven by hatred, so skewed in its sexual relations, that it can literally drive a woman out of her mind.
