        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. Artist Signed Documentation: Fine. Rear Notations About Sale: bright and clear. Frame: distressed: needs replacing. PROVENANCE: The deluxe monograph with forged drawing was purchased at auction through the Weintraub estate. BOOK FORMAT: Publisher's deluxe, soft tan, full calf boards, sewn with handmade raffia endpapers, upper cover with holographic title in green letters; decorated in gold leaf with turn-ins ruled in gilt, top edge with heavy, rolled gilt diamond pattern, and binding signed in gilt by Lopez Valencia. SIZE: Folio, 410 x 320 mm (16.14 x 12.6 inches). CONDITION DETAIL: As mentioned, deluxe monograph lacks called for original Tamayo drawing. Also, lacks publisher's raffia board slipcase. Pages: clean: slight upturned fore-edge: top corners of some pages slightly bumped. Covers: top corners slightly bumped: slight rubs: spine with some foot wear and light crown rub. Gilt: Fine. Binding: Very Good. PAGINATION: Confirmed complete, pages not numbered, but 66 pages, 28 pages of Spanish text followed by a complete English translation, texts illustrated with 23 b/w reproductions, some full-page and one double-page + suite of 33 lithographed, fine full-page color plates with facing text captions, reproducing selected Tamayo oil paintings. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

        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.

Collection of items from the Monterey Pop Festival, including four concert tickets, measuring 3.5" x 1.25"; two business cards, measuring 3.5" x 4"; and a quarto, 80-page full-color event program perfectbound in stiff paper wrappers. The tickets and business card are fine, while the program is near fine with very minor wear at the extremities. The legendary three-day Monterey Pop Festival, held in Monterey, California on June 16-18, 1967, included a lineup of classic rock performers second only to Woodstock. It is considered by some music historians as an even more important event: it kicked off the Summer of Love, was the first widely promoted and heavily attended rock festival, featured a particularly diverse group of performers, and was an early model of benefit concerts to follow (almost all the musicians performed for free, with all proceeds donated to a charitable foundation). The four tickets included here are unused front-row seats, labeled "stage front," for performances held on Friday, Saturday, and two different times on Sunday. The two double-sided business cards are from concert producer Alan Pariser, who first dreamed up the idea of the festival, with the address for the festival's office and its logo and artwork featuring Pan playing his flute. The event program is filled with editorials, advertisements, illustrations, and photographs of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Simon & Garfunkel, and Otis Redding, as well as several other performers who did not appear (The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and The Beach Boys), but who placed ads in support of the festival. This includes full-page artwork by The Beatles made specially for the program (Paul McCartney had also arranged for the booking of Hendrix and The Who at the festival). Also sprinkled throughout are essays from various musicians, critics, and music industry insiders including Leonard Bernstein, Jan Wenner, Bob Shelton, Derek Taylor, Peter Tork, and others commenting on the forthcoming festival. A wonderful collection of items from the first major pop music festival. .

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

      Cultural Revolution Committee of Urumqi / Xinjiang Army Divisioni 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.

Laid-in is a signed type-written card from Faber director John Bodley: "My annoyance on Wednesday was provoked by the very inadequate explanations of your technical dept. I should be sorry if I left you with the impression that we were dissatisfied with what you had tried to do for us last Sunday. This copy of Stoppard's amusing play is sent as a friendly gesture, anyway!" Also included is a copy of the Samuel French acting edition. This revision of Stoppar's 1964 one-act play 'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Meet King Lear' was first performed by the Oxford Theatre Group at Cranston Street Hall, Edinburgh on August 24 1966. The first professional performance was given by the National Theatre Company at the Old Vic Theatre, London, on April 11, 1967. The subsequent US production won Tony Award for Best Play.

        The Master and Margarita. Translated from the Russian by Michael Glenny.

      London, Collins and Harvill Press, (1967). Original full green cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Original illustrated dust-jacket with just a touch of tiny edgewear. Not price-clipped. An excellent, near mint copy.. The uncommon first edition, first issue of the first complete translation of Bulgakov's seminal main work, being the standard English version of one of the greatest novels of the 20th century, and one of the foremost Soviet satires.Glenny's translation is preceded by Ginsberg's, which appeared earlier the same year, but which is a translation from a censored Soviet text and therefore incomplete. Glenny's translation is generally considered the best of the six different translations into English that have now appeared; it is considered more smooth and much closer to the intention of Bulgakov than the modern translations, which are lacking in idiomatic flow
