        Dessin original à l'encre et au lavis d'encre annoté par Jean-Michel Folon, 1967

      Paris, 1967. Dessin. Illus. by Roland Topor. Très bon. Aucune reliure. In-8. 19,8 x 14,8 cm. Encre et lavis d'encre sur papier à carreaux. Au verso, une annotation de la main de Jean-Michel Folon attribuant le dessin à Topor, le datant (1967) et le situant rue de l'Echaudé (le domicile parisien de Folon à l'époque). Topor et Folon étaient des amis très proches. Aucun doute n'est possible sur l'authenticité du dessin : si son style est quelque peu surprenant, notamment en raison de l'usage du lavis, le trait et l'humour sont caractéristiques. De même l'écriture de Folon est typique et inimitable. On notera que Folon écrit le nom de Topor exactement comme ce dernier signe et nous avons cru un moment que le dessin était signé de lui, mais nous avons pu depuis vérifier ce phénomène sur un manuscrit de Folon consacré à son ami. Bel état. (Sur la photo nous avons déplacé l'annotation du verso au recto. Voir notre référence n° 3506 pour une belle collaboration entre Topor et Folon.).

        V. & H. V. Rolland's Illustrations To The Armorial General (3 Volumes)

      London, UK.: Heraldry Today. Good. 1967. Hardcover. Quarto - 28 x 21.5 cm.; Unpaginated. Blue cloth with gilt lettering on spine. Reproduced from the 1903 -1926 edition, this is the reprint (1000 copies) from 1967. The work took all of 23 years to complete with over 85,000 shields of Arms illustrating every Arms mentioned in the "Armorial General". 500 copies were printed in 1954 (Lyons) of which very few remain. In addition to the actual Arms illustrations, Volume I contains a preface, key to English, German, Spanish and Italian texts with a 7 page illustrated guide to the vocabulary of armorial design and layout with a one page Table of Abbreviations. In Volume 1, (I & II, A-F) there are 376 plates with 48 Arms per plate with the exception of the plates that are at the end or beginning of a particular letter sequence . Volume 2, (III & IV, G-O) has 331 plates with 48 Arms per plate with the same exception as noted above. Volume 3, (V & VI, P-Z) has 217 plates with 48 Arms per plate with the same exception. The working text is in French. The externals of all 3 volumes are scuffed and rubbed with bumped corners. The books are quite heavy and all exhibit slight play in the front and rear hinges with a repair having been made to the front hinge of volume 1. The binding is not strong enough to support the text block in its case as there is no mull cloth connecting spine to boards with the hinge being dependant solely on the end papers. A massive amount of work and then to be not properly bound, ah well, such is life. .

        Nihon

      Tokyo: Shaken, 1967. Very close to fine in silver boards and the complete publisher's acetate jacket, which has slightly lifted on the rear panel. Nice copy of a book that deserves more attention than it gets.. First Edition. Square quarto. A bleak assessment of sixties Japan by one of its foremost photographers. More understated than his Provoke counterparts, Tomatsu nonetheless offers a searing indictment of modern Japan gone awry: from the aftermath of a typhoon, to scarred walls and distressed roads, with an end section of protest and Okinawa images which are paradoxically the most optimistic images in the book, though I doubt this was Tomatsu's intent. Although not stated in the book, this copy comes from the library of noted Japanese photographer Kishin Shinoyama. (Aperture 94-101).

        Typed letter signed.

      Vence, 22. V. 1967. - 4to. 1 p. To publisher Alecto Book in London, on the card game they are about to publish. Dubuffet finds the specimen model excellent but adds that if the impression is on a different sheet of paper and not on the card itself, they will have to be conscious about the collage: "[.] Dans le specimen en question il y a une feuille collée sur le dos propre de la carte, et le collage n'est pas bon (la feuille de papier rapportée se décolle, ne tient pas bien collée; et aussi alle se plisse et se marque de cassures quand on tord un peu la carte; d'ailleurs ce collage a tendance à donner à la carte un peu de courbure). Je ne sais si vous envisagez d'imprimer sur le dos même de la carte (ce qui serait sûrement préférable) ou bien de procéder comme pour ce specimen, en contre-collant une feuille de papier rapportée au dos la carte. Dans ce cas il faudrait étudier très soigneusement la nature de la colle à employer, afin d'obtenir un collage très solide, et qui n'ait pas cette conséquence de courber un peu la carte. Il est évidemment important que les cartes soient parfaitement planes, bien exemptes de courbure. A part cet inconvénient dû au collage, je suis maintenant très content avec ce dos des cartes; il me semble qu'il fait très bon effet; êtes vous de mon avis? [.]". - He adds in a post-scriptum that M. Jaeger, from the Jeanne Bucher gallery, submitted the English translation of the text that will serve as instructions for use. The original edition of this card game, named "Banque de l'Hourloup, playing and drawing cards", was published in 350 numbered copies in an illustrated casing. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

He has been re-reading with enormous pleasure Blake Brown's Autobiography of a Young Ex-Parson ('Quite unique in its wit of a specialized character.I would recommend it as a bedside book to anyone and the pages are heavily scored in the margins.'). 8" x 6 1/4", on his engraved 130 Boulevard Malesherbes, Paris letterhead. Fine (few spots on upper right).

        The Word

      (San Francisco, 2010). Quarto. 10ff. Original calligraphic manuscript by Ingmire of the text from a section of Paz’s poem “Blanco.” This poem, which was published in 1967, has been linked to Paz’s time in India, and it can be read as a figurative exploration of Indian religious philosophy. “The spirit is an invention of the body/ The body is an invention of the world/ The world is an invention of the spirit”, all of which is rooted in the Word, which also harkens back to the Logos at the beginning of the Gospel of John. In treating this text, Ingmire has envisioned the first section of the poem as a text that is revealed from an abstract drawing on the facing page, as if emerging from the blotting of the drying ink. This treatment reaches its climax in the center spread, where the text is written in alternating lines of black and raised gold against a marbled background, and what appeared as strange and jarring is suddenly transformed into something harmonious and striking. A bold interpretation by Ingmire, whose work has balanced traditional calligraphy with modern, innovative techniques and an astounding ability in his use of gold script. Bound in heavy handmade paper wrappers with the title in vertical blocks on the front cover. Housed in a complimentary folding case by the Foolscap Press. Extremely fine.
