        Cien Años de Soledad (One Hundred Years of Solitude).

      Buenos Aires: Editorial Sudamericana, 1967. First edition of the author's masterpiece which is recognized as one of the most significant works in the Spanish literary canon. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers. Inscribed and dated in the year of publication by the author on the front free endpaper, "Para Hombre Luis Roffo, Cordialmente Gabriel Garcia Marquez 1967." In near fine condition with a touch of creasing to the spine and overall light rubbing. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Uncommon in this condition and rare and desirable signed in the year of publication. "One Hundred Years of Solitude chronicles the life of Macondo, a fictional town based in part of Garcia Marquez's hometown of Aracataca, Columbia, and seven generations of the founding family, the Buendias. He creates a complex world with characters and events that display the full range of human experience. For the reader, the pleasure of the novel derives from its fast-paced narrative, humor, vivid characters, and fantasy elements. In this 'magic realism', the author combines imaginative flights of fancy with social realism to give us images of levitating priests, flying carpets, a four-year-long rainstorm, and a young woman ascending to heaven while folding sheets" (NYPL Books of the Century 31). At the conclusion of the 1970's this book was voted by the editors of The New York Times Book Review to be not only the best book published in the last ten years but the book most likely to still be read one hundred years from then.

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1967 First edition, first printing.Octavo. Original burgundy cloth, titles to upper board and spine in silver and orange, red topstain. With the dust jacket.A superb copy in the dust jacket. The perfect association copy with the author's magnificent presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, "To Morty With limitless gratitude & admiration, without whose genius as a producer this script might have remained just a script, & without whose good sense and good nature it might have never have survived. Joe Heller 10/16/68" The recipient was Morton Gottlieb the producer of the ill-fated Broadway production of this play. The play opened on the 16th October 1968 - the very day this copy was inscribed by Heller - and ran for just 85 performances, closing on the 29th December that year. Playscripts inscribed to their producer have always struck me as any play's non plus ultra association copy.[128]

        L'Archibras Nos. 1-7 [Complete, with Unused Stationary]

      Paris: Le Terrain Vague, 1967. First edition. 4to, each issue offset printed, gathered in signatures and gluebound, with the exception of the fugitive issues 4 and 5, which are saddle-stapled, the latter with the "Tchécoslovaquie" rubberstamp in green to cover, as issued. Text in French. Profusely illustrated in b/w. With an unused sheet of stationary for the periodical added. All issues published of the important Surrealist periodical, which began in the year following the death of Breton and bracketed the uprisings of 1968, and worked to situate the movement without the burgeoning polititical movements of the time. The memorable cover of the third issue features a rotary telephone with the numbers replaced by the phrase "BLACK POWER", and this run includes the very scarce fourth and fifth issues, produced "out of series" - both of which were confiscated by the authorities for their attacks on De Gaulle and material on Czech Surrealism. The cover of the first issue, which featured a photograph of that issue itself casually arrayed among predecessor Surrealist periodicals, both served to boldly position the periodical as heir, but also acknowledged the difficulties of defining the movement in a tumultuous decade after the death of Breton. With contributions across the numbers by Philippe Audoin, Jorge Camacho, V. Bounoure, Jehan Mayoux, René Nelli, Gérard Legrand, Jean-Michel Goutier, Joyce Mansour, Suzy Embo, Radovan Ivsic, Toyen, Pierre Alechinsky, José Pierre, Jean-Claude Silbermann, Annie Le Brun, Dionys Mascolo, Marguerite Duras, Herbert Marcuse, Guy Cabanel, Hervé Télémaque, George Sebbag, Bernard Roger, Ohcamac, Robert Guyon, François-René Simon, Franklin and Penelope Rosemont, Jindrich Heisler, Yves Elléouët, Ted Joans, Jean-Claude Barbé, Claude Lévi-Strauss, Witold Gombrowicz, Alain Joubert, Michel Zimbacca, Mimi Parent, Jean Lamrieu, Claude Courtot, Pierre Faucheux, Paulo Antonio de Paranagua, Stanislav Dvorsky, Vratislav Effenberger, Petr Kral, Ludvik Svab, Giovanna, José Sanchez, Roger Renaud, Jean Terrossian, Elie Delamarre de Boutelille, Jean Benoit, Bernard Roger, Jeep, and Michel Gourtay.

        FAKE; a forgery exposed

      OFFERING: An extraordinary art crime item, an art forgery sold, as by Rufino Tamayo, transformed into a picture document after he denounced and defaced it. Shown the art forgery during a visit with its owner, the New York art dealer, Jacob D. Weintraub, Rufino Tamayo vented his anger and dismay by dramatically documenting the event, writing FAKE across the center of the artwork and autographing his declaration, his personal testament embedded in and inseparable from the identity fraud it has stopped. I have consulted with curators, art dealers, artists, etc., and none have seen or heard of such a testament before, nor have I come across an example in the literature. A signed declaration of forgery, superimposed on the fraudulent artwork by the offended artist is excessively rare. Accompanying the forgery picture document is the rare deluxe issue of the monograph, "Tamayo", also from Jacob Weintraub's collection. The book provides additional confirmation for the testament's authenticity. As called for, the justification leaf of the limited edition book is signed by the principal contributors, first among them, Rufino Tamayo. The book's authentic Rufino Tamayo signature is from the same time period and matches Rufino Tamayo's testament signature on all points. The matching authentic Tamayo signatures are wholly and in every respect dissimilar to the counterfeit signature of the forger. PROVENANCE: Jacob D. Weintraub had a personal connection to the altered work and recognizing the great rarity of the event, kept this remarkable picture document for his private collection. The altered forgery and deluxe issue book were offered from his estate, as one lot at auction and purchased by the seller. CONDITION: Overall condition of the mixed lot: Good. Condition Detail: Forgery: Fine / Tamayo Testament: Fine / Gallery Label: Fine / SBMA Sticker: Very Good / Picture Frame: Poor / Book: Good but lacks raffia board slipcase, lacks called for, signed Tamayo drawing. / Pages: bright and clean, many pages with a light fore-edge bend, some pages with a top corner slightly bumped. / Covers: bright and clean with slight rubs; top corners slightly bumped, spine with some footwear and a light crown rub. / Gilt: Fine / Binding: Very Good. THE DENUNCIATION: The 'original' artwork is about creation but it is a forgery made to capitalize on the growing fame of Rufino Tamayo's art. His banner style declaration, charged with anger and incredulity, nullifies the claim and transforms it into a riveting, illustrated document. Spanning 182 x 65 mm, the testament is made in the manner of voiding a financial instrument, but with an artist's flair, stabbing the figure, cutting into an eye, piercing a wrist, the k in FAKE done as an insult-v along the nose, joined to a cross-out-x. Rufino Tamayo's nonpareil autograph nearly spans the width of the drawing and its long T-bar flourish underscores the denunciation. DOCUMENTATION: Three pieces of documentation on the rear backing, the seller label of the art gallery, a museum sticker used to augment provenance, and Jacob Weintraub's notes on his purchase, establish some of the historical background: Title: "Woman with Outstretched Arms" / Media: pastel and pen & ink / Size: 240 x 319 mm / Date: 1967 / Claimed Provenance: made by Rufino Tamayo / Additional Claimed Provenance: label of Santa Barbara Museum of Art (SBMA) / Claimed Verification: artist signature in right bottom corner / Price: $2,500.00 / Sale Date: February, 4, 1969 / Seller: Maxwell Galleries, 551 Sutter St., San Francisco, (established 1940 by Fred Maxwell) / Buyer: Jacob Weintraub, buying inventory for the Weintraub Gallery, 992 Madison Avenue, New York (After making his reputation as a dealer in German Expressionist art, Jacob Weintraub [1905-2000] opened a gallery in Manhattan in 1967 and he would have been purchasing after the 1968 Christmas season to add to inventory.) / Forger: Unknown / Testament Date: Unknown. (Possibly Weintraub showed "Woman with Outstretched Arms" to Tamayo in 1971 or 1973 when the artist was visiting in New York, for the opening of solo exhibitions at the Perls Gallery.) THE DELUXE ISSUE: comprises the first 110 examples from the limited edition of 3,110. Handbound as issued, boards wrapped in soft tan calf, the upper side is decorated with an original Tamayo design in green, the top edge stamped with a scaled lozenge pattern, rolled in gold leaf and folio sewn with raffia endpapers delicately brushed with gold leaf, one inner panel on each side ruled in gold leaf, the binding signed in gold leaf by Fernando Lopez Valencia, one of Mexico's leading bookbinders. Printed on Sirius cardstock, the justification leaf is signed and numbered by Rufino Tamayo, and additionally signed by Francisco Graue (the principal editor), German Torres (the printer) and Fernando Lopez Valencia. BOOK: "Tamayo" by Juan Garcia Ponce, Galeria de Arte Misrachi, Mexico City, 1967, all texts in Spanish and English, example no. 71 from the deluxe limited edition, the true first edition. PAGINATION: Complete; 66 unnumbered pages, Spanish followed by an English translation, texts illustrated with 23 b/w reproductions, some full-page, one double-page + a suite with 33 lithographed full-page color plates with facing captions, reproducing selected oil paintings by Rufino Tamayo.

        THE BEST SHORT STORIES BY NEGRO WRITERS: AN ANTHOLOGY FROM 1899 TO THE PRESENT

      New York City, NY: Little, Brown & Company, 1967. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Little, Brown & Company, 1967. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 508 pages. Retrospective collection of short stories. One of the most important literary collections of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. Presents "The Best Short Stories By Negro Writers: An Anthology From 1899 To The Present". Edited, selected, and annotated by Langston Hughes, the leading figure of the Harlem Renaissance, and one of the finest American writers of the 20th century. At the time of publication, the anthology was THE authoritative collection of its kind: Comprehensive, measured, and broadly expansive. Well-known, now great writers like James Baldwin, Ralph Ellison, Richard Wright, John Williams, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Langston Hughes himself are juxtaposed with "equally talented though yet relatively unknown writers such as Alice Walker, Ted Poston, Conrad Kent Rivers, and Mike Thelwell". Alice Walker ("The Color Purple") ascended to Pulitzer heaven shortly thereafter. Other notable inclusions are such now-canonical writers as Jean Toomer and Nora Zeale Hurston. Langston Hughes' tireless efforts on behalf of his fellow African-American writers paid off, and helped lead to a future writer like Toni Morrison, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1993, twenty-six years later, well before the century's close. An absolute "must-have" title for Langston Hughes and American literature collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated (in the month and year of publication) , and inscribed in black fountain pen on the front free endpaper by the author/editor: "Inscribed especially for Lloyd Garrison with cordial regards and good wishes always. Sincerely, Langston Hughes New York February 10, 1967". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Hughes' handwriting is Classically clean, flowing, and elegant. Although it is still clear and visible, the word "sincerely" is smudged a bit (most probably by Hughes himself, whose typical salutation it is, but must have, on second thought, realized it was redundant in this case because he had already written "with cordial regards and good wishes always") . Alas, he seems to have tried in vain to erase it, thereby leaving behind another trace of himself. Writers - and everyone else - today just do not have "penmanship" like this any longer. This title is a great collection. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, placed, dated, and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and despite its imperfection (wear and fading on DJ corners and spine) is still in fine condition: The book itself is in fine shape, and every single page is clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Some of the finest American writers of the 20th century. A near-fine collectible copy. .

        [Portfolio]: Black Jews

      New York: Lawrence N. Shustak. 1967. First. Portfolio. Brown textured paper over boards with ribbon ties. Title stenciled, and author's signature on front board. Seven bifolia (folded card leaves) with mounted photographs. A portfolio of 12 images. An eighth bifolia is laid in with a duplicate image, we think this functioned as a prospectus, with a note by the photographer that seems to indicate that. A little rubbing on the boards else fine, the images are immaculate. Inscribed by the author in 1967. Hand-stenciled title page and stenciled or stamped colophon indicating that this is copy number 97 of an edition of 150 copies Signed by the photographer (considering the do-it-yourself nature of the project, we'd be surprised if the run of 150 portfolios was completed). Strikingly rich black and white gelatin silver prints of black Jews (sometimes known as "Ethiopian Hebrews") worshipping in New York.Shustak (1926-2003) was a white Bronx-born photographer, who moved to, and stayed in New Zealand in 1973. According to a website devoted to his work, he was best "known for his 1960's portfolios of Black Jews, Fisheye nudes, Jazz musicians (for Riverside Records), Graffiti, Street photography..." He was also the subject of an award-winning documentary.A rare and quite wonderful group of images focused on a little known sub-sect of the Jewish religion. The only copy we've seen. OCLC locates two sets of the portfolio (Yale and University of New Mexico). .

      1967 - Miss Helen Lightbody (d. 1987, nanny to Prince Charles and Princess Anne, 1948-1956), written on his last day at Gordonstoun, " . it seems so strange after almost 6 years & yet I shall be pleased to leave in many ways as I think one outgrows school at 18. Papa has just left for Canada having arrived last night for our last service and having said goodbye to some staff.

        Têtes-mortes

      First edition of which there were no large paper copies.Precious copy inscribed by Beckett to his friend the painter Geer (Van Velde) and his wife Lise.Spine very slightly sunned, not serious."What to say of the sliding planes, the shimmering contours, the cut-out figures in the fog, the balance that any little thing can break, breaking and re-forming themselves under our very eyes? How to talk about the colors that breathe and pant? Of the swarming stasis? Of this world without weight, without force, without shadow? Here everything moves, swims, fells, comes back, falls apart, re-forms. Everything stops, non-stop. One would say it's the revolt of the internal molecules of a stone a split second before its disintegration. That is literature" (The van Veldes' Art, or the World and the Trousers, in Cahiers d'Art n°11-12, Paris 1945).Beckett here is not talking - despite how it may appear - about his literary oeuvre, but about the paintings of Geer Van Velde, going on to add a few lines later "[Bram] Van Velde paints distance. G[eer] Van Velde paints succession." This elegy, published on the occasion of the double exhibition of the Van Veldes (Geer at Maeght's and Bram at the Galerie Mai) is the first important text on these painters, more or less unknown to the public at the time: "We've only just started spouting nonsense about the Van Velde brothers, and I'm the first. It's an honor." This is also the first critical text written directly in French by a young Irish writer who had not, as yet, published anything in France.Thus, the first and most important of Beckett's writings on art, composed at the dawn of his literary career, establishes - right from the start - a fundamental relationship between his developing work and his friends' art: "Thus this text has often been read in a hollow or in the mirror, as one of the rare designations of Beckett's poetry (to come) by the man himself, a sort of anamorphic program of writing," (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique by Pierre Vilar).A real statement of dramaturgical intent, this fundamental text whose introspective value Beckett lays out from the introduction on ("one does nothing but tell stories with words") ushers in the writer's most fruitful creative period. In essence, like Apollinaire and Cendrars, Beckett draws from the artistic problems of his contemporaries the catalyst of his own future writing through "the deepest questioning of narrative, figurative or poetical presuppositions" (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur).The major influence of modern painting on the narrative structure - or destructuring - of Beckett's drama and novels would be pointed out and examined by a number of thinkers, among them Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva and Maurice Blanchot. It was, in fact, with the art of the Van Veldes (first Geer then Bram) that Beckett began to formalize this desire to translate the pictorial question into dramaturgical terms. Thus it was that he rejected Nicolas de Staël's set design for Godot, since: "the set must come out of the text without adding anything to it. As for the visual comfort of the audience, you can imagine how much I care. Do you really think you can listen with the backdrop of Bram's set, or see anything other than him?" (Letter to Georges Duthuit, 1952).When he met Geer in 1937, "Beckett was going through a major existential crisis and had just been reworking his first novel, Murphy, which had been rejected by a great many publishers. He was lost in alcohol, leaving Ireland and moving once and for all to Paris" (Le Pictural dans l'
