        "Like to watch television with a girl." [original drawing, ca.1974]

      Very Good+. [slight browning at edges, two small liquid-paper touch-up spots at right-hand corners; signed "BUK"; see note about mounting]. This is an original ink-on-paper drawing, measuring 8-1/2" x 11", by the celebrated L.A. poet/novelist, one of many he made to illustrate his long-running "Notes of a Dirty Old Man" column, which began in the counterculture newspaper "Open City" in 1967 and migrated to the "Los Angeles Free Press" in 1969 when "Open City" folded. (I have not yet been able to pin down a specific publication date for this particular drawing, although it unquestionably dates from the 1973-1974 period.) Bukowski's "Notes" column, which ended in 1976, was probably the single biggest contributing factor to both the spread of his literary fame and his notoriety as a hard-living, hard-drinking L.A. character: in the almost ten years of its run, he went from being a struggling poet (who still worked full-time at the post office) to an internationally-known figure. The "Notes" alternated irregularly between prose and poetry, and his crude yet evocative doodles -- which were also very funny, in a deadpan-hilarious way -- were an important element. Alas, when the columns were collected and reprinted, the illustrations were omitted and some of the flavor thus lost -- as were, in fact, the drawings themselves. This drawing, and the others we're offering for sale, are from the personal collection of L.A. poet-publisher Michael C Ford, who found them while cleaning out his desk at the end of his own tenure as a Freep staffer in late 1974; when he offered them to Bukowski, he was told "ah, you hang onto ‘em kid, they might be worth something someday." That day would be now. [Please note that this particular drawing has been mounted onto a piece of illustration board with two tiny pieces of double-stick tape, at the upper corners. I have been assured by a professional paper conservator that these bits of tape can be removed cleanly, with no damage to the drawing itself and with minimal residue left behind.] Signed by Artist .

        Typed Contract signed between Jagger and writers* Christopher Gibbs and Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon whereby Jagger engages them to write a "full cinematograph film treatment" based on the Arthurian romance, "Sir Gawain and The Green Knight"

      N.p. [London:], 5 december, 1967. Folio. 6 pp., accomplished in ink, signed by all parties and witnessed by a fourth, Jagger's signature appearing over a six pence stamp of the Queen. Stapled to red paper backing. Old folds, but overall very good . [with:] Typescript of the treatment, entitled "The Story of Venus and the Quest for Arthur's Kingdom". [16] pp., 4to, N.p., n.d. With numerous ink corrections, deletions and additions in ms. Slightly ragged at edges, dog-eared, with some soiling, but complete and intact. Toward the late 1960s, when the Rolling Stones had evolved into a major rock band, Mick Jagger's ambition was turning to film as a possible outlet for his charismatic talents. One of the zanier projects Jagger developed was that of producing and starring in a film based on the Arthurian romance of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. As Marianne Faithfull, his girlfriend at the time, later wrote; "Mick began taking acting lessons ...Then there was THE MAN WHO SHOT MICK JAGGER and a whole slew of hippie projects. Christopher Gibbs and Nigel Gordon had written a script based on the mystical Middle English romance GAWAIN AND THE GREEN KNIGHT. Mick was going to play the Green Knight - Mick and Keith do the Middle Ages!" The present contract records the terms of that somewhat improbable project, which, not surprisingly, never materialized - but is nonetheless, an important document early in the career, at a critical juncture, of one of the revolutionary icons of the 60's counter culture. *Gibbs is a well known collector, designer, and style guru who decorated Jagger's house on Cheyne Walk, and whose own house was used in a scene in Michaelangelo Antonioni's Blow Up. Gibbs was later employed by co-director Donald Cammell on the film Performance as the Consultant Designer of the character Turner's house. Lesmoir- Gordon was a film editor at the time working for David Cammell, of Cammel, Hudson and Brownjohn. David Cammell co-produced Performance. Lesmoir-Gordon has since produced and directed several television documentaries, among which is the award winning The Colours of Infinity, written by Lesmoir- Gordon and presented by Arthur C. Clarke, with music by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd

He studied at the College of Art, St. Martin's School of Art, and the Slade School of Fine Art. Paolozzi spent the years between 1947 and 1949 in Paris, where he got to know Arp, Brancusi, Giacometti, and Leger and dealt with Surrealism as well as 'art brut'. Paolozzi was co-founder of the "Independent Group" in London in 1952/53, which discussed thoughts of including trivial culture and that way gave decisive impulses for the development of English Pop Art. Paolozzi's work changed radically in 1961 when he began using prefabricated aluminum and brass casting moulds, creating an homage to modern machines and technology. RARE ITEM.

        Andy Warhol's Index (Book)

      New York: Random House. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION (preferred hardcover issue), of Warhol's iconic Index (Book). "Andy Warhol's Index (Book), which is an expensive rarity today, was another portrait of the mysterious silver factory as a schizoid fin house. It consists primarily of photographs, blank pages, joke pages, and a pop-up cut-out of a medieval castle inhabited by Warhol's superstars above the logo 'We are constantly under attach.' The text is a rambling, seemingly random, classically monosyllabic interview with Warhol. Although it stands today as an essential report on the Warhol factory, the Index book operates on a different level entirely inasmuch as it does not rely primarily on language" (Bockris, Warhol: The Biography). Complete with pop-up castle, Hunt's Tomato Paste can; a folded geodesic dome (with tear at tab, as often); a sheet of stamps to be placed in water (with bottom two stamps removed); a paper accordion; a multi-colored pop-up airplane; a paper disc with "The Chelsea Girls" in printed type on wire spring; a 45 R.P.M. flexi-disc with portrait of Lou Reed, which plays a supposedly unrecorded song by Nico and the Velvet Underground; and an illustration of a nose with two colored overlays on a double-folded page; balloon melted and fusing the two pages (as always). New York: Random House, 1967. Octavo, original black cloth with holographic front board. Small neat owner signature on front pastedown. Old tape securing a one tab, a few stray marks to binding.

        Two Monumental Hook-Work Parade Banners: Chairman Mao Reviewing The Great Army of the Cultural Revolution

      Urumqi, XinJiang Uyghur Autonomous Region: Cultural Revolution Committee of Urumqi / Xinjiang Army Divisioni, 1967/8. Two extraordinary hand-crafted parade banners, ca. 110" x 84" (9 feet x 7 feet), one slightly smaller. Each entirely composed of hook-work with colored yarns on white muslin backing. Slight age-toning and soil; a few threads loose but no significant losses; Near Fine condition overall. Folded and stored in original velvet draw-string carrying bags, as found.& & Both banners bear the inscription "Chairman Mao Reviewing the Great Army of the Cultural Revolution," and depict the August, 1966 mass rally at Tiananmen Gate, where more than 10 million Red Guards from all over China converged to express their solidarity with Mao and his second-in-command, Lin Biao. Additional text on the lower banner reads "Long Live Chairman Mao for ten thousand years" and "Sailing in the ocean requires a helmsman" -- both quotes from Lin Biao. The agencies responsible for the banners are identified in lower right of each: "Cultural Revolution Committee of Xinjiang Army Division, 1968" (upper banner) and "Cultural Revolution Committee of Urumqi, 1967" (lower). & & The presence of Biao (the figure to the right of Mao, holding the Little Red Book in the top banner) is of particular interest. Biao, compiler of The Quotations of Chairman Mao (popularly known as the "Little Red Book") and coiner of the phrase "Maoism," was probably more responsible than any other figure for creating the cult of personality around Mao, particularly at the time of the Cultural Revolution. He quickly ascended Party ranks, and was widely seen as Mao's obvious successor. But in 1971, Biao was exposed in the process of an apparent coup attempt (the details of the event have never been made public). He died in an airplane crash attempting to leave China, and from this point forward was officially condemned as a traitor by the Communist Party; any record of his achievements on behalf of the Revolution was expunged from the official record, and any positive image of Biao would have been confiscated and destroyed as a matter of course -- suggesting either that these banners left China prior to 1971, or that they remained out of sight until some later date. The second possibility is plausible given whence the banners issued - both were created by Red Guard branches in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, an extremely remote province in China's northwest corner (and for many years the center of a militant independence movement for Uyghur and other Turkic minorities). In any case, the precise manner in which these banners left China will likely never be known; they surfaced at a New England antiques show in 2011.

        Cien años de Soledad

      A Nobel Prize winner, one of the most important South American literary works of the 20th century. 1967. Buenos Aires. Editorial Sudamericana. In 8vo (197 mm x 130 mm). 351. Pictorial wrappers in excellent condition. Uniform browning as often, else very good. First edition. This can only be regarded as Garcia Marquez? masterpiece, the book that would earn him the Nobel Prize for literature ?along with others- and a position in the ranks of the major league for contemporary authors. As expected the book that ultimately popularized South American literature was an immediate bestseller, with three editions published the same year in June and December, this being the real first edition, published in May. The editorial company was in a rush to have the book published, so it neglected to utilize the image Marquez wanted for the cover, later editions actually have the image he wanted. We should comment on the fact that it is rare finding a copy in the original binding, and in such excellent condition.

        T.V. Baby Poems

      London: Cape Goliard Press, (1967). Light stain noticeable at the spine heel, else very good in parchment covered boards, Japanese paper dust jacket, a little stained and torn.. First Edition. Limited to 100 copies handbound in hardcover (this being one of Ginsberg's private copies, numbered 102.) A titanic association copy, Beat to Beatle, INSCRIBED by Ginsberg to Paul McCartney prior to publication: "No. 102 / For / Paul McCartney / that / all fantasies / Harmonise Sweetly & / also Hari Krishna! / Scribed by / Allen Ginsberg / Aug. 16, 1967 / Albion." At a later date Ginsberg has added a second inscription: "Re-inscribed Bern Switzerland November 29, 1980 / to [R...] von Kauffungen, who bought / this copy in N.Y. at a book fair 1978. / Allen Ginsberg." (The book was donated by McCartney at a charity auction.) McCartney makes an appearance in this volume in the poem "Middle of a Long Poem on 'These States': Kansas City to St. Louis", and then later uses a line from the poem, "electric arguments," as the title of his 2008 album recorded under the pseudonym the Firemen. The friendship and artistic collaboration between Ginsberg and McCartney was profound and well-documented, yet few if any direct associations between the two have emerged in commerce.

        Dialogue. Journal des Livres et des Idees", Septembre 1967, no. 3 [Signed by Sanavio and by Pound]

      Lausanne, 1967. First edition. Newspaper format. Near Fine. A Near Fine copy of the September, 1967 issue of "Dialogue. Journal des Livres et des Idees", the Swiss literary and philosophical newspaper. The entire issue is devoted to praise of Ezra Pound and was published in an attempt to persuade the Nobel Committee to award the Nobel Prize in Literature to Pound, with the primary supportive article being written by Piero Sanavio. This copy has been INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY PIERO SANAVIO TO EZRA POUND at the top of the front page as follows: "To Ezra for a happy new year. Piero Sanavio ~ ". This copy ALSO HAS BEEN SIGNED BY EZRA POUND (in a stylish manner and with two exclamation points) on the front page adjacent to his printed portrait. Italian author, poet, translator, and prestigious literature professor Piero Sanavio was born in 1922 to a highly-literary and pro-fascist family. Both a Rockefeller Fellow and a Literary ambassador for the United Nations, Sanavio taught, among other places, at Harvard, Brandeis, University of Michigan, Yale, and Princeton, and championed Pound throughout his career. [Notably, disillusioned with England due to the carnage of World War I, which he blamed on usury and international capitalism, Pound relocated to Italy in 1925 where he later embraced Mussolini's fascism, vocalized support for Hitler, and wrote for publications owned by Oswald Mosley (founder of the British Union of Fascists). During World War II Pound, paid by Italy, made hundreds of radio broadcasts critical of the United States and, as a result thereof, American forces arrested him for treason in 1945.] This issue also contains writing in support of Pound by George Seferis, Eugenio Montale, Ernest Hemingway, and T. S. Eliot, each of whom won the Nobel Prize in Literature, as well as by notable literary figures Edith Sitwell, Lewis Wyndham. This copy, from the Estate of Actor and decorated Naval Officer Douglas Fairbanks with his bookplate loosely laid in, is in excellent condition for such a delicate item, showing mild toning and with the usual newspaper-style spine fold, one additional vertical fold, and one horizontal fold, typical of a newspaper one might fold an extra time to carry under one's arm. There is some wear at the horizontal fold with a tiny split at each end of the fold -- one of which produces a tiny hole at what becomes the center of the issue when it is opened -- and with a tiny hole at what is the center of numbered page 3. (The entire issue is comrised of a single large sheet with printing on both the recto and the verso, producing 4 numbered newspaper-style sheets when folded.) Ephemeral in nature, not very many copies will have survived to the present day and thus the issue itself is quite scarce. Signed copies of this publication are, of course, RARE. A scarce copy of this issue of "Dialogue", devoted entirely to Ezra Pound, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED TO EZRA POUND BY PIERO SANAVIO and ALSO SIGNED BY EZRA POUND. QUITE RARE.
