        Vánocní Betlém [Bethlehem Christmas].

      (1968). An uncommon die-cut pop-up card depicting a nativity scene set in ancient Bethlehem, beneath palm trees and a starry night sky. Cattle, goats, sheep, and an elephant surround the manger, as the magi and others bring gifts. Presiding over the scene is an angel carrying a banner proclaiming "Gloria in Excelsis Deo." Kubasta's clever technique interlocks two brightly-colored accordion-fold illustrations to create a three-dimensional panorama. Two additional interlocking pieces with cherubs, lambs, and a Christmas tree are designed to be placed in front of the display. In a recent New York Times feature on Kubasta, paper engineer Robert Sabuda, who was inspired by Kubasta's books at an early age, described Kubasta's work as unusual in that he was able to create astonishingly complex, detailed scenes with a single sheet of paper. His pop-up books are also known for their bold, rich color and were printed in Czechoslovakia on special pre-war presses at the state-run publishing house Artia. Measures approximately six inches (15cm) tall. Angel's wings are slightly bent, else a fine example of Kubasta's creative work. (Grimes, William, "Wizard Who Made Art Jump Off the Page," New York Times, Jan. 31, 2014).

        L'espace littéraire

      New pocket-sized edition, review copy. Touching and valuable autograph signed by the author to his sister Marguerite: "To my dearest sister, Marguerite, this book, premises may be" the end of the book "with tender apology MB." Marguerite Blanchot, renowned organist Chalon Cathedral, remained all his life in the family home with his mother and aunt. "It will gradually become, for the family, as the memory of origins." Very close to Maurice, she regularly corresponded with the writer who reflects him great recognition for his dedication to their helpless mother. If intense affection Blanchot for his mother and his sister shines in dedications of it, we know almost nothing of their relationship. In the only biographical essay on Blanchot, Christophe Bident reveals, however: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot worshiped his brother very proud of him, (...) it attached great importance to his political ideas (...) She read a lot (.... .) They phoned corresponded. A distance, they shared the same natural authority, the same concern for discretion. " Blanchot address him indeed many books from his library, now with her continuous intellectual link. Nice copy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! Gallimard Paris 1968 11x16,5cm broché

        Archive of Yippie, New York Provo and other Downtown Protest Mimeographs

      Various, 1968-1970. Some examples show considerable wear, overall good to near fine.. Fifty-three items, mostly typed mimeographed quarto sheets, some with mimeographs of hand-drawn "hippie" drawings. Altogether, documents the activities of the nascent Yippie movement and its anarchist sympathizers, especially the "New York Provo" (also called the "Downtown Poor") and the Free Store movement, often with support of the "Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers". The archive tracks the be-ins, smoke-ins, free concerts and other activities that culminated with the "Festival of Life," an "international youth festival" to be held in Chicago parallel to the 1968 Democratic Convention organized by Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman, Anita Hoffman, Nancy Kurshan, Paul Krassner, and others. The YIP's total rejection of political process and governmental legitimacy included marijuana smoke-ins at public places as well as the establishment of an alternative FDA dedicated to the free distribution of food and drugs, a concept tested at "Free Stores" in the East Village and Alphabet City. Through an appropriation of bigotry at midtown "Hate Parades" and a strength in numbers approach to defiance of drug enforcement laws, the YIPs and Provo posed a palatable threat to the political elite gathering in Chicago for the Democratic convention. The mimeographed sheets, quickly and cheaply printed, created an alternative press, a sort of downtown Twitter, often printed in both English and Spanish in an attempt to also speak to Alphabet City's large Puerto Rican and Dominican population. The Yippie's contempt for the mainstream press motivated them to communicate directly to their supporters, circumventing traditional media while also maintaining a paranoid anonymous voice. Of the New York Provo mimeographs, only two are attributed, "Cops eat… flowers", and a lengthy, 13 page letter, both by George Metesky, a pseudonym adopted by the Diggers. Overall, a fascinating textual and visual documentation of radical political actions, especially leading up to the contested convention in Chicago. The total archive contains fourteen Yippie related items, thirteen Provo New York related items, seven Free Store related items, and an additional twenty items of related interest, including a mimeograph by Ed Sanders, a mimeograph by "Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers", and several music related handbills for acts including the Fugs, The Holy Model Rounders, Richie Havens, Phil Ochs, and a large "Sound-Out" festival near Woodstock.

        Pantominas e etc.

      Grafica Uno, 1968. Five lithographs on stone and poem by Perisico Paris. 5 litografie su pietra (cm 17x78,5; 32,5x42) ed un poema in inglese di Perisico Paris. 16mo (cm 17x22). pp. 16+litografie. Ottimo (Fine). Prima edizione di 50 + 2 H.C. es. numerati. La prima fase della produzione artistica di Harold P. Paris fu dominata da una personale interpretazione dell'espressionismo astratto, per poi volgersi a una ricerca sull'espressività dei materiali in opere al limite tra la figurazione e l'astrazione. Nel 1963 è chiamato ad insegnare all'Università di Berkeley. Prime personali nel 1965 e 1967 alla Hensen Gallery di San Francisco. Nel 1969 ha luogo la sua prima personale in Europa allo Studio Marconi di Milano. Negli Anni Settanta si dedica a lavori ispirati alla Shoah e alla cultura ebraica, che espone al Jewish Museum di New York nel 1975. Nell'ambito della scultura realizza opere di respiro ambientale, vere e proprie installazioni percorribili dai visitatori. Dopo la sua morte nel 1979, l'Università di Berkeley gli dedica una retrospettiva itinerante che tocca diverse città degli Stati Uniti. (da ''Autobiografia di una galleria. Lo Studio Marconi 1965/1992'').

It is the first Dutch work on eggs and still considered the standard work on the subject by Balis in 1968. Zimmer also praises the work because of its "unusual merits . This study embraces the texture, composition and pigmentation of the shell, the dietary and other causes for variation or peculiarity in ground-color or markings, and similar topics not usually discussed in oological handbooks".It was originally published in 7 parts from 1911 to 1914 in both English and Dutch, with 100 copies of the English edition and 150 of the Dutch.Only some occasional minor foxing to the text leaves and the plates leaves trimmed, shaving off a few plate numbers, otherwise in very good condition with the text leaves untrimmed, leaving all deckles intact.

        Biggles and the Deep Blue Sea.

      Leicester: Brockhampton Press, 1968. Stated 'First Edition 1968'. Octavo, pp.184; 1 (list of titles). Later state binding of red cloth in similar state of the dustwrapper priced 12/- (60p) net -earliest issued were priced at 10s. (Roger Harris). These first edition sheets therefore bound and sold ca.1970-71, around the time of decimalisation. Dustwrapper has minor edgewear, bright, sharp and clean with some minor scuffing and creasing to extremtities, near fine. Overall a very good copy which shows well. Supplied in a fresh clear plastic archival sleeve. An attractive example of a scarce, late Biggles title, numbered 79 to the spine but in strict chronology of published titles this is the 91 of 98 series entries. Gift inscription to front flyleaf. One of the rarest Biggles titles! Further adventures of James Bigglesworth, better known in flying circles as "Biggles", the fictional pilot, air detective and global adventurer created by Captain W. E. Johns, who had first appeared in 'The Camels Are Coming' short story collection (1932). Johns continued writing Biggles short stories and novels up until his death in 1968; in all, nearly a hundred Biggles books were published. Biggles' heyday was the '40s and '50s- but by the swinging 1960s the intended market had moved on, and interest in the series waned, resulting in new titles being printed in increasing fewer numbers. These late titles are therefore rather elusive.

        L'espace littéraire

      Gallimard. New pocket-sized edition, review copy. Touching and valuable autograph signed by the author to his sister Marguerite: "To my dearest sister, Marguerite, this book, premises may be" the end of the book "with tender apology MB." Marguerite Blanchot, renowned organist Chalon Cathedral, remained all his life in the family home with his mother and aunt. "It will gradually become, for the family, as the memory of origins." Very close to Maurice, she regularly corresponded with the writer who reflects him great recognition for his dedication to their helpless mother. If intense affection Blanchot for his mother and his sister shines in dedications of it, we know almost nothing of their relationship. In the only biographical essay on Blanchot, Christophe Bident reveals, however: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot worshiped his brother very proud of him, (...) it attached great importance to his political ideas (...) She read a lot (.... .) They phoned corresponded. A distance, they shared the same natural authority, the same concern for discretion. " Blanchot address him indeed many books from his library, now with her continuous intellectual link. Nice copy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! Gallimard Paris 1968 11x16,5cm broché
