        The Original Kiss Drawings Picture Letter Sent to Staff and Contributors at MAD

      - THE PICTURE LETTER: illustrates the collegial working atmosphere at MAD. It begins with a work update for Jerry DeFuccio and ends with eight valediction kiss drawings, each done for a prominent MAD staff member, or contributor, seven displayed, as a continuous strip on the rear, all on the theme of, "What is my response to a kiss from Sergio?" Each drawing shows an affectionate Sergio kiss and the comic response of the recipient, respectively: Jerry DeFuccio (Associate Editor), Lenny Brenner (Chief Production Consultant), Nick Meglin (Contributing Editor), Al Feldstein (Editor), Bill Gaines (Publisher), John Putnam (Art Director), Antonio Prohias (mentor to Aragonés, known for his "Spy vs. Spy" feature), and Al Jaffee (much admired by Aragonés, known for his rear fold-in, and regular feature, "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions"). The letter is done in pen & red ink, both sides of a 10.9 x 8.4 inches (276 x 213 mm) sheet, English, except date in Spanish (August 21, 1967), sited Palma on Majorca, 17 lines, and with 5 corrections, signing off, "Smack! Love" with the 8 valediction kiss drawings, first with the unnamed DeFuccio. An arrow points to the strip's continuation, at the rear, where a heading names the others receiving a goodbye, four mentioned in the letter. CONTENTS: Aragonés posted from the island of Majorca, where he was vacationing with his wife and recovering from the 'flu'. Now feeling much better, he tells DeFuccio he is drawing again and New York can soon expect more of his marginals, (his MAD feature, "crammed with crowds of silly people doing silly things.") [Evanier] He requests art supplies from Lenny Brenner; cheerily mentions John Putnam's visit; references sending an early version of, "What is a Square" and asks for feedback on cells Al Feldstein has approved (feature in June 68 issue, no. 119), suggesting MAD feature writer, Tom Koch could do an allied feature, "What is a Sucker?", for which he would do the artwork. PORTRAITS WITH SERGIO SHOW: 1) Jerry DeFuccio, a model of patience; 2) Lenny Brenner, goggle-eyed with hair standing on end; 3) Nick Meglin, a satyr, panting with extended tongue; 4) Al Feldstein, kissed on the back of the head, grimaces with teeth bared; 5) Bill Gaines, yelping in mock resignation; 6) John Putnam, closely embraced, waits in shock for his release; 7) Antonio Prohias, eyes closed, blissfully smiles (as if remembering something sweet); 8) Al Jaffee smacks Sergio with a roundhouse to the jaw, captioned, "Soc!" (no fold-in from Al). CONDITION: Bright and clean, customary mailing folds; never mounted; a bottom corner crease, two tips with gentle creases, one tip with trace bend; a few fingering impresses, chiefly at bottom edge. SERGIO ARAGONÉS [1937-]: began drawing for MAD shortly after coming to New York City in 1962, from Mexico. A prolific contributor, he had two longtime features, "A Mad Look At", and his celebrated, marginals. In 1967 he began work at DC comics, including on "Bat Lash". But beyond his MAD artwork, he is principally known for, "Groo the Wanderer", a series done in collaboration with Mark Evanier from 1981. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Shazam (1972), Harvey (9 times since 1990), National Cartoonist Society Comic Book Award (1986), and the Reuben (1996).

        CARTE SEGRETE RIVISTA D'AVANGUARDIA trimestrale di lettere ed arti - 1967 - 1980 TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO DELLA PRIMA SERIE - dal numero 1 del gennaio - marzo 1967 al numero 50 del settembre - ottobre 1980., Roma, Vari editori, 1967

      tutti i fascicoli ( cm. 13,5 x 20,8) sono rilegati con le originali copertine in cartonato da imballo ed ognuno è di circa 200 - 250 pagine. Le figure in copertina sono assemblate con fantasia e riportano i nomi di molti degli scrittori ed illustratori protagonisti ed anche iniziative e tendenze, spesso controcorrente, del periodo. DOMENICO JAVARONE è l'anima - fondatore e direttore fino alla sua scomparsa (1 dicembre 1979) , poi viene sostituito dal suo vice GIANNI TOTI per gli ultimi numeri dal 47 al 50 quando la rivista cessa la sua PRIMA SERIE. La testata riprenderà dopo qualche anno, con altri protagonisti ed obiettivi. Il taglio che JAVARONE ha dato alla rivista è stato di grande ampiezza culturale ma "CONTROCORRENTE" ed alla continua ricerca di nuovi protagonsti e nuovi SCHEMI e spesso fuori dai sentieri editoriali cosidetti "vincenti" Le due linee base CARTE SEGRETE E CARTE SCOPERTE sottolineano la continua ricerca ed i tentativi di sviscerare cose "nascoste" e da "scoprire" dando luminosità al lavoro proposto da questa simpatica rivista che sottolinea nella sua testata il significato di AVANGUARDIA e lo mette in PRATICA. L'ampiezza delle tematiche spesso trattate è grande, STORIA, POLITICA, POESIA, LETTERATURA STRANIERA, ARTE, ILLUSTRAZIONI con nomi italiani importanti (ci sono scritti di Pasolini, D'Annunzio, Enzo Siciliano, Musil, Marinetti, Comisso,Saba, De Pisis, Zavattini, Buzzati, Flaiano,Bevilacqua, C.E. Gadda, Corrado Alvaro, ecc.) ma anche stranieri (James Yojce, Alexander Blok, Mao Tse Tung, Andrè Breton, Che Guevara, Karl Marx, ecc.). Nel settore degli illustratori i nomi sono importanti (Mucha, Paul Klee,Purificato, Cantatore, Aligi Sassu, Giacomo Balla, Prampolini ecc. ecc.. L'insieme mette in sincero imbarazzo il vostro libraio nel compilare la scheda, convinto di proporre una collezione veramente significativa, non trovando però nelle bibliografie ufficiali riferimenti concreti ed ampi appunto perchè il lavoro di JAVARONE è stato di "opposizione". Saranno percio' graditi suggerimenti e completamenti per arricchire questa scheda.

        Dag Hammarskjöld: The Statesman and His Faith

      New York: Harper & Row 1967 - 8vo., blue boards and black cloth lettered in gilt; pictorial dust jacket; with one closed tear. First edition, first printing, signed by Van Dusen on the title page. A presentation copy, inscribed by Van Dusen to Philip C. Jessup: "For Phil, with gratitude and high regard, H.P.V.D, Christmas 1966," on the front endpaper; Jessup praised the volume in a dust-jacket blurb.[Together with] "Dag Hammarskjöld: The Statesman and His Faith" (Advance Uncorrected Proof with Jessup's annotations). ---- The recipient, Philip C. Jessup, a judge on the International Court of Justice at The Hague and veteran U.S. diplomat, was credited with playing a major role in ending the Soviet blockade of West Berlin. Jessup was a representative to the United Nations General Assembly, as well as a U.S. ambassador at large from 1949 until his resignation in 1953. During that time, he was one of the closest advisers of then- Secretary of State Dean Acheson. After Jessup was maligned by Senator Joe McCarthy for purported communist "affinities," General Dwight D. Eisenhower heralded Jessup's "devotion to the principles of Americanism." McCarthy's charges kept Jessup from being reappointed to the U.S. delegation to the United Nations in 1951 but President Harry S. Truman made him an alternate delegate the following year. Advancing the mission of the United Nations, Jessup was on familiar terms with Hammarskjöld. On the inside of the dust jacket of "Dag Hammarskjöld," Jessup declared: "I have read this book with fascination. Dr. Van Dusen contributes to a better understanding of Dag Hammarskjöld himself." A compelling presentation copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Faber & Faber (1967)., London: - First edition. Prize-winning poet Anthony Hecht's copy with his ownership signature on the front endpaper. A PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED by Hughes, "To Tony/ in Memoriam/ from Ted/ 13 July 1967." This was Hughes first book of poems after wife Sylvia Plath's death from suicide in 1963 -- we assume the "in Memoriam" is for her, as she and Hecht were very close friends, which is clearly indicated by her intimate letters to him. Plath and Hecht met while both were teaching at Smith College (1956-1962), where Hughes also taught. After Plath's death, Hughes and Hecht continued to be friends and each man went on to win numerous awards and to become the Poet Laureate of their country. Ted Hughes was known to greatly admired Hecht, calling him "one of the most accomplished of his extremely accomplished generation." The book is crisp and fine with only very minor wear; in a near fine, lightly age-toned dust jacket with slightly darkened spine and a few tiny nicks. An early, important association copy between two poets who went on to become highly esteemed in each other's countries as well as their own. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Persian Gulf Pilot. N.P. No. 63.

      London: published by the Hydrographer of the Navy,, 1967, & 1974. Comprising the Persian Gulf and it s Approaches from Ra's al Hadd, in the South-west to Ras Muari in the East. [Together with;] Supplement No.5 -1974 to Persian Gulf Pilot (Eleventh Edition, 1967). Corrected to 7th December, 1974. Octavo. Original blue cloth, title in yellow to spine and to the upper board; supplement wire-stitched in the original printed paper upper wrap, and plain cardboard lower. Folding general map frontispiece and 13 other full-page maps, 21 plates of coastal profiles. Folding frontispiece to the supplement. Slightly sunned at the spine and board edges, lightly rubbed, endpapers a touch browned, upper wrap of the supplement just toned at the fore-edge. First published 1870, this eleventh edition following the tenth of 1955. This copy with a supplement updating the volume to 1974, a new edition was not issued until 1982. All editions of these highly-detailed navigational handbooks to the Gulf tend to be uncommon. Beyond the specifically maritime aspects these handbooks did provide some basic background on local conditions, climate, items of trade, and so forth. An interesting record of a time at which "extensive new building development" was beginning to "change the appearance of some of the towns, notably Abu Zabi and Dubayy". "The picturesque town of Muscat, is protected on its eastern and part of its southern side, ands the western side by precipitous hills, the remainder of the southern side, and the western side is protected by a wall. Outside the wall, and between it and the rugged hills encircling the town, every available space is occupied by may huts"; "The coast between Dubayy and Abu Zabi … is except for a small village, at which there are some date trees, situated about 4 miles south-westward of Dubayy, quite barren, uninhabited …": "The town of Abu Zabi … extends for about 2 miles, and consists, in the main part, of concrete buildings with a number of huts at the south-west end".

        Human heart Transplantation / Hartoorplanting in de mens: "South African Medical Journal, Vol. 41: no. 48, 30 December 1967. [Containing, among other writings: A Human Cardiac Transplant: An Interim Report of a Successful Operation Performed at Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town].

      (Cape Town, 1967). 4to. The entire issue, in the original green/white and illustrated wrappers. Lower corner a bit bent, but otherwise a very nice, clean and bright copy of this richly illustreted issue, which is devoted entirely to the groundbreaking medical performance that was Barnard's human heart transplant. LX pp. + pp. 1257-1278 (the pagination includes the wrappers).. First printing in this scarce issue, in which Barnard's milestone paper of modern medicine appeared, describing for the first time one of the most important medical performances in the course of history - "the most publicised event in world medical history", namely the first human heart transplant. This medical breakthrough introduced to the world a way to prolong life that would become of seminal importance to modern man.The entire issue of the "South African Medical Journal" is devoted to Barnard's astonishing performance (done only three weeks prior to the publication) and is very interesting in itself, constituting a magnificent historical document. Apart from the first appearance of Barnard's paper, it also contains tributes to Barnard and his team by other leading physicians, ethical discussions about tranplantations, a description of the honourary degree bestowed upon Barnard due to the operation, discussions about donors for heart transplantations, papers on legal requirements, pre-operative assessment, tissue typing tests anestesia, and, of course, the great operation itself. To that also comes the highly interesting "Provisional Report on the Autopsy of L.W. (the patient, Louis Washkansky) as well as numerous advertisements and several heartfelt congratulations to Barnard (and his team) upon the operation (e.g. a half-page "add" saying "UPJOHN and their S. African Subsidiary/ TUCO (PTY LTD./ heartily congratulate/ all concerned/ in the historic/ HEART TRANSPLANTATION/ carried out at Groote Schuur Hospital" and many others like it), reflecting the astonishing effect that this historic event immidiately had upon contemporary society. "Christiaan (Chris) Barnard was born in 1922 and qualified in medicine at the University of Cape Town in 1946. Following surgical training in South Africa and the USA, Barnard established a successful open-heart surgery programme at Groote Schuur Hospital and the University of Cape Town in 1958. In 1967, he led the team that performed the world's first human-to-human heart transplant. The article describing this remarkable achievement was published in the South African Medical Journal just three weeks after the event and is one of the most cited articles in the cardiovascular field. In the lay media as well, this first transplant remains the most publicised event in world medical history. Although the first heart transplant patient survived only 18 days, four of Groote Schuur Hospital's first 10 patients survived for more than one year, two living for 13 and 23 years, respectively. This relative success amid many failures worldwide did much to generate guarded optimism that heart transplantation would eventually become a viable therapeutic option. This first heart transplant and subsequent ongoing research in cardiac transplantation at the University of Cape Town and in a few other dedicated centres over the subsequent 15 years laid the foundation for heart transplantation to become a well-established form of therapy for end-stage cardiac disease. During this period from 1968 to 1983, Chris Barnard and his team continued to make major contributions to organ transplantation, notably the development of the heterotopic ( 'piggy-back') heart transplants; advancing the concept of brain death, organ donation and other related ethical issues; better preservation and protection of the donor heart (including hypothermic perfusion storage of the heart; studies on the haemodynamic and metabolic effects of brain death; and even early attempts at xenotransplantation." (Cardiovasc J Afr. 2009 Jan-Feb; 20(1):31-5.)Garrison&Morton: 3047.12 ("First cardiac homotransplant in man.")

      - FIRST EDITIONS IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF MILGRAM'S TWO LANDMARK 'SMALL-WORLD PROBLEM' PAPERS & A COLLECTION OF SEVEN MORE SEMINAL PAPERS ON THE SMALL-WORLD PROBLEM - also known as six degrees of separation. "In 1967, social psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted a seminal experiment to test the hypothesis that scattered members of any large social network (here, the United States) could be connected to each other through short chains of intermediate acquaintances" (Levinson, Village, I, 1255). Milgram put it this way: "The simplest way of formulating the small-world problem is: Starting with any two people in the world, what is the probability that they know each other?" (Milgram, 62). To find out, he "mailed a passport-like packet to a few hundred randomly selected individuals in Nebraska and Kansas, explaining that the packet's final destination was one of two target recipients in the Boston area. Milgram instructed his subjects to send the packet? to someone whom they knew on a first-name basis - someone they thought was more likely to be acquainted with the target person than they were themselves? "His famous result, now enshrined in popular culture and sociology dogma, was that the average length of the resulting acquaintance chains was roughly six links, where the final member of the chain was the target itself. This result led to the phrase 'six degrees of separation'", [though Milgram never used it] and later Guare's play of the same name (Levinson). Two Granovetter papers build on Milgram and are among the most important in the social sciences. His 'Strength of Weak Ties' are pioneering, highly influential papers arguing that "In marketing, information science, or politics, weak ties enable reaching populations and audiences that are not accessible via strong ties" (Wikipedia). Granovetter concludes "that no strong tie is a bridge, and therefore "all bridges are weak ties" (Granovetter, 1363). Weak ties, he argues, "are more likely to link members of different groups in networks than strong ones. Weak ties connect different actors and consequently enable the flow of information" (Trost, Social Media, 17). Kochenand de Sola Pool formally and famously articulate "the mechanics ofsocial networks and explore the mathematical consequences of these (including connectedness)" (Wikipedia). Their work "provided the intellectual impetus for a whole generation of students who designed and executed studies of the 'small-world'." In 1998 Watts and Strogatz seminally document the best known family of small-world networks and posit the network model as a framework to study the small-world problem. Their work "provided compelling evidence that the small-world phenomenon is pervasive in a range of networks arising in nature and technology, and a fundamental ingredient in the evolution of the WWW" (Kleinberg, 1). Brabási and Réka introduce an algorithm used to generate random, scale-free networks. Scale-free networks are often observed in natural as well as human created systems, including cellular networks, the WWW, Internet, and social networks. Kleinberg's 2000 paper rigorously quantifies the small-world network . Kleinberg first recognized that Milgram's small-world implicitly argues not only the presence of short paths between "individuals in social networks, but also that people seem to be good at finding those paths, an apparently simple observation that turns out to have profound implications for the structure of the networks" (Wikipedia). Lastly, the play Six Degrees of Separation is included for a bit of fun. DETAILS: All papers housed in individually-sized compartments in a handsome leather and cloth clamshell case. Kleinberg's paper is a bound extraction; Granovetter's second paper is bound and includes dust cover; Strogatz's paper is inscribed. All others are journal issues in original wraps. Mailing labels appear on most; a few are ex-libris; withal, the collection is in fine condition.

        Thirtyfour Parking Lots in Los Angeles

      Los Angeles: Edward Ruscha. FIRST EDITION SIGNED. Softcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY RUSCHA in ink on front free endpaper: "Ed Ruscha '82". With 31 black and white photographs of the 34 parking lots. "In Thirtyfour Parking Lots in Los Angeles photographs of empty parking lots, each with a caption indicating location, are distributed one or two to each double-page spread in a book 10 by 8 1/8 inches. Ruscha's choice of aerial photography demonstrates his awareness of how the print media began to show the changing Los Angeles landscape: bird's-eye views of Los Angeles enjoyed increasing popularity during the 1960s, owing in part to the new prominence of helicopters. Typically aerial photographs depicted the city's freeways and suburban developments, evoking, depending on one's perspective, the appalling or breathtaking magnitude of L.A.'s sprawl. Photographs in newspapers of massive parking lots and garages always included plenty of cars, conveying both the size of the population and the practical means of coping with geographic distances. Thirtyfour Parking Lots in Los Angeles asks viewers to consider not the functional role of the parking lots but their abstract patterns, their regular grids of white paint on concrete randomly splattered with oil. The oil spots disrupt the functional order of the parking lot just as the aberrant cars parked along the Sunset strip break the uniformity of urban space. These dissonant signs, produced either by chance or by the artist's design, resist the imposition of rationality on the urban landscape" (Cecile Whiting, Pop L.A.: Art and the City in the 1960s). Los Angeles: Edward Ruscha, 1967. Quarto (205 mm x 255 mm), original printed paper wrappers. 48 pp, 31 black-and-white photographs. Without the scarce glassine. Wrappers with a little toning around edges (as often). A near-fine copy; rare signed.

      Oxford University Press 1967 - The First UK and only printing published by Oxford University Press in 1967.The BOOK is in near FINE condition and appears unread.The green top-stain is still present. The titling to the spine is very bright.Very light spotting to the text block.The book is tight,clean and free from inscriptions and erasures. Some mild tape remnant stains to the green endpapers where tape from the previous wrapper cover has leaked through - fairly insignificant and does not detract from what is a very sharp copy.The WRAPPER is in near FINE condition.Mild edge wear with a light rubbing at the upper edge and spine ends.The spine colouring is not faded and it remains very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover.A large and heavy book.Surprisingly scarce in the wrapper. and with such attributes.A stunning copy! Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
