        The Magus

      London: Blazer Films. 1967. Fowles' screenplay for the 1968 film of his second novel, a near-fantasy set on a Greek island and involving a young expatriate Englishman who is drawn into the fantastic designs of a self-styled psychic. The film, with Anthony Quinn, Michael Caine, Candice Bergen and Anna Karina, gained a cult following in the Sixties. The cast included two of the best-known male leads of their time (Quinn & Caine), an up-and-coming young actress who had been nominated for a "Most Promising Newcomer" Golden Globe two years earlier (Bergen), and Anna Karina, a staple in the films of French avant garde director Jean-Luc Godard. The director was Guy Green, a former cinematographer, and while the material may have been a bit much for Green, whose previous movies had been more straightforward than the complicated, partly fantastic plot that Fowles' novel presented him with, the film was nominated for a British Academy award for cinematography. This script bears the name of David Harcourt and has revision sheets dated September 4, 7 and 12, and November 25, 1967. Harcourt is listed as a camera operator on a production schedule (laid in) dated August 15, 1967. Also laid in is the shooting schedule for November 11. These sheets are torn and sunned, but the script itself is near fine and claspbound in very good red covers. An early, complete piece of writing by Fowles, and likely the scarcest item in his bibliography: the Harry Ransom Center acquired a copy with Fowles' papers; the University of Iowa has a copy in its 20th Century Fox collection. It is Fowles' only screenplay to have been produced, and we have never heard of another copy coming on the market. . First Edition.

        Guillaume Apollinaire: Sept Calligrammes. Ossip ZADKINE: Dix Eaux-Fortes

      Paris / Basel: Christophe Czwiklitzer, 1967, first Zadkine edition. Of the total edition of 232, this is number 68 of 75 exemplars with the English text on the colophon (there were also editions with French and German colophons, all 3 identical, the only difference is the text on the colophon); signed by Ossip Zadkine and Czwiklitzer on the justification page. Guillaume Apollinaire's poems (in French) are here illustrated with 10 original hors-texte etchings by Ossip Zadkine, each numbered and signed in pencil by the great sculptor. Additionally included is a poem by Wilhelm de Kostrowitzky as homage to Apollinaire. About 80 pages, 45 x 32 cm, loose sheets, tissue guards, all housed in black cloth folder and black cloth slipcase with lettering on the spine and front cover stamped in white. The calligrammes are printed in letterpress, following the exact original avant-gardist design by Apollinaire. Each sheet printed on vélin d'Arches very heavy construction stock with deckle edges, each measuring 17.5 x 12.5 in. (45 x 32 cm), most of the sheets printed in white on black background and vice versa. In new condition, aside from a repaired minor bump on the side of the slipcase. A great homage to Apollinaire and a handsome livre d'artiste. References: Czwiklitzer 64-75; Monod 370. According to Monod, a large number of copies was destroyed by the publisher, and the prints sold individually, which probably accounts for the otherwise inexplicable rarity of this book.

        ANDY WARHOL'S INDEX (BOOK)

      New York: Random House, 1967. First edition. Wraps. Very Good +. 4to. 11" x 8.25". pp. [68] plus pictorial endpapers. From title page: "With the assistants of Gerard Malanga [crossed out], Stephen Shore, Paul Morrisey, Ondine, Nico, Christopher Serf, Alan Rinzler, Gerald Harrison, Akihito Shirakawa and particularly David Paul. Several photographs by Nat Finklestein. Factory fotos by Billy Name." Cloth-backed boards with mounted holograph. pp. [68] plus pictorial endpapers. A practically near-fine example of this notoriously fragile production. Boards are bright and sharp, with only trace rubbing and a couple of small abrasions to front cover. Main faults are typical: balloon perished with attendant offsetting and adhesion of surrounding pages, as in all copies; some starting to one signature, but still intact; lacking uncommon original plastic sleeve. Else all remaining elements present, functional, and attached. All pop-ups work, including the accordion (which retains its squeak!). Dodecahedron retains original rubber band. Easily very good or better; uncommonly complete. Just about the nicest we've seen. Warhol's famed "pop-up book for hipsters" and one of the best documents to emerge from The Factory. A Roth 101 selection. "[O]ne of the most important and exuberant Pop art objects ever published [...] it is also one of the ultimate photobooks-as-objects" (Parr & Badger 144-5).

        Tamayo

      An extraordinary copy of the publisher's deluxe hand bound issue of the first edition, limited to 100 numbered and signed copies accompanied by an original, signed, color drawing by Tamayo. While this example-no. 71-lacks the issued drawing, it has a remarkable substitute, a color drawing sold as by the artist that Tamayo later viewed and declared a forgery. Tamayo documented the event by printing FAKE in large capitals in the center of the drawing, signing R. Tamayo below. The owner, recognizing the comparative rarity of the event, an artwork certified a forgery by the artist on the work itself, carefully preserved the altered drawing as an historical record together with the separately obtained deluxe monograph, example no. 71 of the first 100 copies printed, the colophon signed as called for by Rufino Tamayo, the artist, Fernando Lopez Valencia, the binder, German Torres, the printer and Francisco Graue, the co-editor, in the deluxe signed, handmade full calf binding. THE FORGERY AND ITS DOCUMENTATION: The art forger's color drawing, "Woman with Outstretched Arms", (319 x 240 mm in the frame), is signed Tamayo and dated 1967 in pencil. The backing has notations about the sale, documenting the drawing was sold in San Francisco in 1969 for $2,500 by Maxwell Galleries to the Weintraub Gallery of New York City (both well-known art galleries). It is possible Weintraub showed Tamayo the artwork in 1971, or 1973 when the artist was visiting New York City for the opening of solo exhibitions at the Perls Gallery. After being shown the drawing, Tamayo declared it a fake and then in dramatic fashion, (in a manner similar to voiding a bank draft), printed FAKE in very large 65 x 182 mm capitals with a black felt tip pen through the head and half ellipse created by the figure's outstretched arms, verifying his declaration and the altering of the artwork, by signing R. Tamayo in large letters directly below. It is instructive to compare the free flowing, distinctive, angular y & o in Tamayo's authentic signature with the forger's rounder script devoid of personality or esprit. An otherwise banal drawing is transformed, for Tamayo has converted a forged artwork into a rare illustrated document about the forgery! ARTWORK CONDITION: Forged Drawing: Fine.

        Poste Restante

      Stockholm: P.A. Norstedt & Soners Forlag, (1967). First Edition. Square quarto. An amazing assortment juxtaposed images, effectively tying together all the photographic motifs of the time as Europe emerged completely from the postwar era and ushered in the sixties. Like Ed van der Elsken, Stromholm was an inveterate traveler; the title of this book is an ode to his peripateticism. Unlike Van der Elsken's Sweet Life, however, Stromholm presents a darker and less optimistic view the world. (Parr / Badger, v1, 251; Open Book 232-233). From the library of Swedish photographer Ole Terje with his two-word inscription, dated in 1967; otherwise a fine copy in a near fine jacket, lightly soiled, with a few edge nicks at the spine ends and extremities.

        Hell's Angels

      London: Allen Lane/Penguin. 1967. The first British edition of Thompson's first book, which he wrote after spending a year with members of the famous motorcycle gang, and ended up getting beaten up by several of them. An early example of the participatory "gonzo journalism" that Thompson pioneered and later perfected. Signed by Thompson in full on the dedication page, with the additional notation "WC 0904" -- i.e., Woody Creek, September, 2004. Also signed by Ralph Steadman, "in honor of my friend who tried to be a biker but preferred fame and a wheelchair kitchen command centre," with an original Steadman drawing of Thompson on a scooter on the title page. Thompson at one point thought that the British edition had only been issued in paperback, as he had never seen a hardcover of it; this is probably his scarcest trade edition, and signed copies are virtually unknown. Foxing to cloth; near fine in a near fine, mildly rubbed dust jacket with some foxing to the flap folds. In a custom clamshell case. . First Edition. Hardcover.
