        Lorenzaccio *

      A. Vial, sans lieu 1967. - Relié plein maroquin vert 35 x 27, dos à nerfs, titre et motif du premier plat dorés, tête or, gardes moirées, étui bordé. Dos un peu insolé. L'un des 20 exemplaires de tête numérotés, nominatif, sur Auvergne à la main Richard-de-Bas. Bel unica enluminé à la main et imprimé sur un somptueux papier. Monod, qui l'ignore, présente trois autres illustrés plus connus de cet artiste sur laquelle, à notre tour, nous avouons ne rien savoir. Le titre que nous avons rencontré à plusieurs reprise est un livre de Desnos, dont nous devrions encore avoir un exemplaire: "Les trois solitaires".Les compositions colorées du livre de Musset, fraîches et pimpantes, sont assez éloignées des sévères lithographies en noir de ce dernier, paru qui plus est vingt ans auparavant.Cette artiste, dont c'est le dernier ouvrage illustré, l'année de sa disparition (elle n'avait alors que 56 ans), fut l'élève de Picart le Doux.

        Angry Arts

      NY: Angry Arts. 1967. Ephemeral pieces documenting the Week of the Angry Arts Against the War in Vietnam (January 29-February 5), which included protest performances by artists, musicians, actors, dancers, filmmakers, writers and poets. Included is the schedule of events; an invitation to the Line Dance for Life, with a call for participants in The Maze; a press release on the "Black Death" Midnight Mass; a rehearsal announcement for the Vietnam Life Project; participant guidelines for the Vietnam Life Project; a broadside solicitation of support for Broadway Dissents; a broadsheet poster listing the Dance Protest events at Hunter Playhouse; a program for Carolee Shneemann's kinetic theater piece "Snows;" a broadside announcement of an unspecified event to take place at midnight, February 3rd at St. Marks and Second Avenue; the full page ad for the Week of Angry Arts in the New York Times; a 2-page handout on the existence of bubonic plague in Vietnam, which may or may not be related to the week's events; and, lastly, a form letter of thanks to those responding to requests for support, the verso of which lists some of the artists involved or sympathetic: among the writers listed are Susan Sontag, Allen Ginsberg, Philip Roth, Galway Kinnell, Denise Levertov, Robert Duncan, Donald Barthelme, Robert Bly, Louise Bogan, Hortense Calisher, David Ignatow, Dwight Macdonald, Grace Paley, and many others. Among the performers listed as participating in events during the week are Meredith Monk, Ruby Dee, Alan Alda, Jules Feiffer, Aldo Tambellini, Saul Gottlieb, The Fugs, and many more. Several of the sheets are folded and/or sunned; the New York Times ad has a tear at the center fold; the lot is near fine. Scarce ephemeral materials for an important event in mobilizing opposition to the Vietnam war, before the antiwar movement had spread out widely to the middle class and beyond. Such early opposition to the war tended to be centered within the communities of artists, the intelligentsia, the Old Left and the New Left, and this week, which includes such headings as "Broadway Dissents," "Off-Broadway Dissents," "Dancers Dissent," "Folk Rock Dissents" and even "Avant Garde Musicians Dissent" shows the political engagement of the artistic community, particularly those at the cutting edge, in mobilizing against the war and rallying their audiences and constituencies against it. Angry Arts continued with events in June and spread as far as Los Angeles in promoting antiwar artistic performances. . First Edition.

        A Historical Collection of the Several Voyages and Discoveries in the South Pacific Ocean [Two Volumes in One ]

      N. Israel & Da Capo Press 1967[1770], Amsterdam/New York - Small Quarto Size [approx 17.5cm x 24cm]. Very Good+ condition. Minor stain to the very bottom edge of boards. Bound in cream faux vellum with blue/gilt title patches to face and spine. Bibliotheca Australiana #11. Four [4] fold-out maps. Eleven [11] Black & white illustrations [four fold-out]. xxx, 204, 124, 20 pages + 60 pages Alexander Dalrymple was a Scottish geographer and the first Hydrographer of the British Admiralty. He was the main proponent of the theory that there existed a vast undiscovered continent in the South Pacific - Terra Australis Incognita. He produced thousands of nautical charts, mapping a remarkable number of seas and oceans for the first time, and contributing significantly to the safety of shipping. Whilst translating some Spanish documents captured in the Philippines in 1752, Dalrymple had found Luis Váez de Torres' testimony proving a passage south of New Guinea now known as Torres Strait. This discovery led Dalrymple to publish the "Historical Collection of the Several Voyages and Discoveries in the South Pacific Ocean" in 1770-1771, which aroused widespread interest in his claim of the existence of an unknown continent. Meanwhile James Cook had been appointed in his place to lead an expedition to the South Pacific which in 1770 discovered the east coast of Australia. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Jazz At The Philharmonic, Original Concert Tour Program, final North American Tour 1967, Signed By Coleman Hawkins, Zoot Sims & Clark Terry

      Jazz At The Philharmonic, Original Concert Tour Program, final North American Tour 1967. SIGNED in ink at their respective b&w photographs, by saxophone greats Coleman Hawkins and Zoot Sims and trumpet and flugelhorn master, Clark Terry. Letter of provenance laid in from previous owner who acquired the autographs in Montreal, Quebec, one of several Canadian stops on the tour; the Hawk's signature is particularly significant in that the great saxophonist was in failing health at this time, having stopped recording in 1966, and his performances were very curtailed after this tour, until his death in 1969. A handsome large format (14" by 11") concert program, staple bound wraps, original cover art by David Stone Martin, unpaginated (24 pp, plus wraps), lavishly illustrated with b&w photos. Touch of rubbing to front wrap and mild creasing to the corners and spine, rear wrap is lightly soiled with faint pen strike , else very good+, tightly bound, clean and unmarked. The autographs are fine, clean, without loss or fading. Although impresario Norman Granz had officially ended the JATP national tours with his eighteenth in 1957, a decade later he mounted a final farewell tour of North America which featured the Duke Ellington Orchestra with Ella Fitzgerald as vocalist, as well as other jazz luminaries long associated with Granz, including Oscar Peterson and Benny Carter. After the tour Granz was quoted as saying "I'll never do that again", although he did intermittently continue the tradition, reprising JATP at Monterey in 1971, as well as at the Montreux Jazz Festival in the 70's and with final concerts held in Tokyo in 1983, marking the 30th anniversary of the first time JATP had played there. A highly collectible vintage concert program, an historic tour, with the signatures of three jazz luminaries. J1542. Signed. Very Good +. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

        THE LIEUTENANT

      New York: Dial Press, 1967. . First printing. . Near fine in a very near fine dust jacket (slight shelfwear and a bit of fading to the boards, small spot to upper edge of textblock, but overall much better condition than this is usually found - especially the rather fragile dustjacket which is white and unmarked.) . Dubus's first - and only full-length - novel, a story of military life in peacetime, but in essence about the conflict between idealism and expediency. Dubus served for 5 years in the US Marines and knew well the world of which he was writing. In comments quoted on the back cover, Richard Yates described this as a 'fine, tense, wholly absorbing novel. You can read it at one sitting and miss none of its power, but it deserves to be studied for the skill of its construction and the complexity of its interlocking ironies.' SIGNED on the title page and uncommon thus.

        In a Piegan Lodge [Pl. 188]

      [Boston: D. Sacilotto for Charles Lauriat's: 1967]. Photogravure by Curtis, finely printed from the original plate, on wove paper watermarked "Tweedweave", by the master printmaker D. Sacilotto. A rare edition, not to be confused with later restrikes. A fine print, the beauty and quality of which rivals that of the original plates.(Small discrete collection stamp outside of plate mark on verso.) Very good condition apart from some mild rippling. 13 5/8 x 17 3/8 inches. 22 1/4 x 16 1/2 inches. A breath- taking image from "The North American Indian", the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on American Indians, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. "Little Plume with his son Yellow Kidney occupies the position of honor, the space at the rear opposite the entrance. The picture is full of suggestion of the various Indian activities. In a prominent place lie the ever-present pipe and its accessories on the tobacco cutting-board. From the lodge- poles hang the buffalo-skin shield, the long medicine- bundle, an eagle- wing fan, and a deerskin articles for accoutering the horse. The upper end of the rope is attached to the intersection of the lodge-poles, and in stormy weather the lower end is made fast to a stake near the centre of the floor space." (Curtis, List of Large Plates Supplementing Volume Six) A subgroup of the Blackfoot tribe, the Piegan are of Algonquin stock and inhabited the Plains and Prairies region of North America. They were the quintessential Plains Indians, and in his notes, Curtis described them as amiable people, who had a propensity for social formalities and were easy to work with. The original edition of Curtis' The North American Indian had 214 subscribers and Curtis himself handled the distribution. After Curtis declared bankruptcy, the booksellers Charles Lauriat's of Boston purchased the outstanding stock, and the edition from which this print comes was commissioned in order to complete a number of incomplete portfolios. According to information supplied by the printers, the edition was strictly limited with only 17 sets being produced. Edward Curtis was fascinated with the story of the American Indian from an early age, honing both his knowledge of them and his skill as a photographer on numerous scientific expeditions in the 1890s. With the enthusiastic backing of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword), Curtis evolved his plan for a comprehensive work that would illustrate his romantic vision of American Indian life before the disastrous impact of European contact. He obtained the patronage of J. Pierpont Morgan, whose support (and later, that of his son) enabled the project to go forward. What had originally been projected to take five or six years stretched to twenty-three, consumed $1,200,000 (a third in subsidy from the Morgans), and finally reached a conclusion in 1930, leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, he succeeded in accomplishing his grand design, and the set remains his monument. Cf. Naef & Goldschmidt The Truthful Lens 40; cf. Howes C-965.

In a protective wax paper dustwrapper.

For it, Mr. Ruscha presciently hired local aerial photographer Art Alanis to capture grand, bird's eye views of the parking lots of the likes of Universal City, The May Company, Dodger Stadium, and thirty-one more - all completely devoid of cars! A most presentable example of the 1968 first edition (entry B5 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999" which is also cited on page 141 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", pages 198-201 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and page 227 of "From Fair to Fine 3") limited to two thousand, two hundred and thirteen copies bearing the spectacular SIGNED PRESENTATION "To Marcia / My oldest and dearest without whose constant aid this dream would never have been a reality - Love ya / Ed" in pencil across the entire front free endpaper. In addition, the artist has inserted his own bold fingerprint between the third and fourth lines of the inscription. The late Marcia Simon Weisman, was for over four decades one of the most dynamic supporters of contemporary art in Los Angeles, a founding member of MoCA, and an ardent friend and collector of Ruscha's work. In thirty years we have handled well over one hundred books signed by the artist, and not seen anything approaching the length, complexity, and heartfelt sentiment of this inscription! The book itself shows light overall age-appropriate wear, handling and soiling. The publisher's fragile glassine wrapper is age-toned and lightly soiled with chipping and some paper loss along its edges. It has been priced accordingly.

        Angry Arts

      NY: Angry Arts. 1967. Ephemeral pieces documenting the Week of the Angry Arts Against the War in Vietnam (January 29-February 5), which included protest performances by artists, musicians, actors, dancers, filmmakers, writers and poets. Included is the schedule of events; an invitation to the Line Dance for Life, with a call for participants in The Maze; a press release on the "Black Death" Midnight Mass; a rehearsal announcement for the Vietnam Life Project; participant guidelines for the Vietnam Life Project; a broadside solicitation of support for Broadway Dissents; a broadsheet poster listing the Dance Protest events at Hunter Playhouse; a program for Carolee Shneemann's kinetic theater piece "Snows;" a broadside announcement of an unspecified event to take place at midnight, February 3rd at St. Marks and Second Avenue; the full page ad for the Week of Angry Arts in the New York Times; a 2-page handout on the existence of bubonic plague in Vietnam, which may or may not be related to the week's events; and, lastly, a form letter of thanks to those responding to requests for support, the verso of which lists some of the artists involved or sympathetic: among the writers listed are Susan Sontag, Allen Ginsberg, Philip Roth, Galway Kinnell, Denise Levertov, Robert Duncan, Donald Barthelme, Robert Bly, Louise Bogan, Hortense Calisher, David Ignatow, Dwight Macdonald, Grace Paley, and many others. Among the performers listed as participating in events during the week are Meredith Monk, Ruby Dee, Alan Alda, Jules Feiffer, Aldo Tambellini, Saul Gottlieb, The Fugs, and many more. Several of the sheets are folded and/or sunned; the New York Times ad has a tear at the center fold; the lot is near fine. Scarce ephemeral materials for an important event in mobilizing opposition to the Vietnam war, before the antiwar movement had spread out widely to the middle class and beyond. Such early opposition to the war tended to be centered within the communities of artists, the intelligentsia, the Old Left and the New Left, and this week, which includes such headings as "Broadway Dissents," "Off-Broadway Dissents," "Dancers Dissent," "Folk Rock Dissents" and even "Avant Garde Musicians Dissent" shows the political engagement of the artistic community, particularly those at the cutting edge, in mobilizing against the war and rallying their audiences and constituencies against it. Angry Arts continued with events in June and spread as far as Los Angeles in promoting antiwar artistic performances. . First Edition.

        A Lovely Way to Die (Original screenplay for the 1967 film)

      Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1967. Final Script for the 1967 film, "A Lovely Way to Die," directed by David Lowell Rich, written for the screen by A.J. Russell, and starring Kirk Douglas and Eli Wallach. & & An important transitional crime film, borrowing the "hard-boiled cop turns in his badge and does things his way" theme that was introduced during the film noir era (e.g., "Rogue Cop," "The Big Heat") and transitioning it to the color film era, predicting a new kind of film that would come in the early 1970s, the most notable example being "Dirty Harry." In this case, the cop is Kirk Douglas, with Eli Wallach in a typically fascinating role as a disarming but ruthlessly effective private investigator. The titular opening song is delivered by Jackie Wilson, and this was the film debut of Ali McGraw. & & Red studio wrappers, stamped FINAL SCREENPLAY on the front wrapper, and dated May 2, 1967. Title page present, noting that the original working title was "The Pineapple Print," with a credit for screenwriter Russell. A "rainbow copy," 135 leaves, mechanically reproduced, with green, blue, pink, and yellow revision pages throughout. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with three gold brads.

Edition originale tirée à 300 exemplaires de ce curieux album dont les belles compositions ne se voient qu'en lumière rasante et l'encre blanche se sent au toucher. L'idée était que les acheteurs donnent eux-mêmes les coloris aux planches, et l'on trouve parfois certaines des planches de cet album coloriées et signées, plus tardivement, par l'artiste. Quelques vagues taches au rhodoïd et un accroc au dernier plat. Bel exemplaire de cette suite rare. (Prévoir des frais de port pour 2,5 kg).

        Ritual --- Murder, Witchcraft and Paganism in a Cornish Village ---- Filmed as The Wicker Man

      London: Hutchinson / New Authors Limited, 1967, 1st Edition, 1st Printing -----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket with a tiny bit of rubbing to the edges, a beautiful clean bright example of the Peter Edwards designed dustjacket, very scarce book, later filmed and released as The Wicker Man which was novelized by Robin Hardy, and Anthony Shaffer, however, this is not the novelization ---this is the book from which the film was created, from the cover of the later paperback edition, "A child lies dead in the Cornish village of Thorn, the circumstances point to a ritual killing. But when detective Inspector david Hanlin is sent from London to investigate the matter, he discovers that Thorn has sinister and erotic undertones; murmurs of witchcraft and whispers of occult happenings; as well as a Midsummer Eve ritual that stems from a pagan past.", ---a strange book with episodes of blatant sexuality, paranoia, witchcraft, murder, etc., extremely well written although the climax, ultimately is not very surprising, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo . First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine. Illus. by Peter Edwards Cover Art.
