        The Mountains. Illustrated with ten drawings by John Piper, engraved on the wood by Reynolds Stone, with a descriptive note by John Piper.

      New York: Chilmark Press 1968. 4to, (ii), 42, (6) pages. Original quarter cloth, morocco backstrip with title in gilt, paper-covered boards illustrated with a wood engraving, top edge gilt, slipcase. As new. Limited to 110 special copies in a total edition of 350, signed by the author, artist and engraver, with an extra set of the 10 engravings tipped in and bound thus. (Carter, The Rampant Lions Press: 34). Handset in 18pt Zapf Palatino on mould made paper from Wookey Hole Mill. The third Clover Hill Edition. “Just after the second world war, John Piper and Reynolds Stone, both enthusiasts of nineteenth-century topographical guide-books, decided to produce a modern equivalent, to illustrate the mountains of Snowdonia. They used wood-engraving both as a reproductive process, so that the pictures could be printed together with the text, and as creative interpretations of the drawings, which in several cases Piper did directly on the blocks. We were eager to print these magnificent engravings, and as the Carters and the Stones are close cousins, negotiations were simplified. Douglas Cleverdon persuaded the Welsh poet R.S. Thomas to write some rich poetic prose to accompany them.” (Rampant Lions Press). The collaboration of three remarkably talented artists, Thomas (poet), Piper (artist) and Stone (engraver and calligrapher), designed and printed by two of Englands finest printers, Will and Sebastian Carter.

"Papal domination of Europe has slowed progress and a dystopian medievalism has lasted into the twentieth century" - Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, pp. 313-4. ". a striking work of the imagination." - Burgess, Ninety-nine Novels: The Best in English since 1939, p. 104. With his second book, Roberts came fully into his own as a writer.

        Cybernetic Serendipity. The computer and the arts

      London - New York: Studio International, , 1968. Brossura, custodia (wrappers, slip-case). Molto Buono (Very Good). Studio International special issue. It was first published to coincide with an exhibition entitled "Cybernetic Serendipity" dealing broadly with the demonstration of how man can use the computer and new technology to extend his creativity and inventiveness, held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Nash House, The Mall, London, August 2-October 20, 1968. The exhibition was organized by Jasia Reichardt in collaboration with Mark Dowson (technological adviser) and Peter Schmidt (musical adviser). The exhibition and the cover of the catalogue were designed by Franciszka Themerson. With 7 original posters in cardboard box (cm 51x76; 76x51). 4to. pp. 104 + posters. Molto Buono (Very Good). . Cybernetic Serendipity fu una fondamentale mostra d'arte cibernetica a cura di Jasia Reichardt, organizzata presso l'Institute of Contemporary Arts di Londra nel 1968 con più di 40.000 visitatori. Una parte della mostra era incentrata sugli algoritmi e sui dispositivi per la produzione di musica. Alcune delle opere esposte non erano altro che opuscoli che descrivevano gli algoritmi, mentre altri mostravano notazioni musicali prodotte dai computer. I dispositivi realizzavano effetti musicali e riproducevano nastri di suoni emessi dai computer. Peter Zinovieff prestò parte delle sue attrezzature di modo che i visitatori potevano cantare o fischiettare una melodia in un microfono mentre il suo equipaggiamento improvvisava un pezzo basato su tali melodie. Un'altra parte descriveva progetti informatici come l'auto-distruttivo Five screens with computer di Gustav Metzger, un progetto per un nuovo ospedale, una struttura programmata al computer e una coreografia. Le macchine e gli impianti erano una parte molto rilevante della mostra. Gordon Pask produsse una collezione di grandi cellulari con parti interattive che permettavano agli spettatori di unirsi alla conversazione. Molti macchinari formavano ambienti cinetici o visualizzavano immagini in movimento. Bruce Lacey contribuì con robot radiocomandati e un gufo sensibile alla luce. Nam June Paik fu rappresentato dal suo Robot K-456 e televisori con immagini distorte. Jean Tinguely fornì due dei suoi macchinari per dipingere. Wen-Ying Tsai presentò le sue interattive sculture cibernetiche fatte di tondini di acciaio inox, luce stroboscopica e audio in controllo feedback. Diversi artisti esposero macchinari che disegnavano motivi che i visitatori potevano portarsi via o coinvolgevano il pubblico in giochi. Un'altra sezione esplorava la capacità dei computer di produrre testi: diversi programmi produssero Haiku, storie per bambini e saggi. Furono anche proiettati film prodotti da computer. Anche la grafica computerizzata trovò spazio, con immagini prodotte su un oscilloscopio a raggi catodici e plotter digitali. C'era una varietà di manifesti e grafica che dimostravano la potenza dei computer nel fare calcoli complessi (e apparentemente casuali). Altri grafici mostrarono la simulazione di un Mondrian e gli iconici quadrati a spirale decrescenti che poi furono riprodotti sul manifesto della mostra e sulla copertina del catalogo.

        Typed Letter Signed about Catch-22 1 page (once folded), 8vo, to Prof. James Nagel concerning Heller's late military activities & a mistaken episode concerning his novel Catch-22.

      New York, June 18, 1968. Typed Letter Signed. Near Fine. TLS by Joseph Heller, author of Catch-22: 1 page on Heller's personal deckle-edged stationery [with letterhead: "Joseph Heller / E. Hampton, N.Y."] bearing several ink corrections in the author's hand, dated June 28, 1964. Accompanied by a stamped envelope also addressed to Professor James Nagel of Northeastern University, Boston, Mass, postmarked "June 2{5?}, 1968, Smithtown, N.Y.," and typed [presumably by Heller]. "Joe" Heller writes "Jim" Nagel to to inquire about his new collection of critical essays about Heller's famous novel Catch-22. The author asks for a set of bound galleys of those essays. Evidently, one of the essayists got his facts wrong. In response, Heller relates what actually occurred during his last days in the Army Air Force. He was employeed in PR but couldn't recall doing anything. Letter has Excellent Content about Heller's life and novels. It is in Near Fine condition without discoloration; bearing evidence of the author's attention to detail with blue ink corrections of typos. Heller summarizes his actual duties during the waning days of service in the Army Air Force and corrects a serious misinterpretation about those activities and their supposed relationship to his celebrated novel. Quoting in part: "Dear Jim:...I insist you send me a copy of the [Critical] essays. To answer your questions: After my last mission, I waited around for a couple of months to be sent to the U.S. in January, then, from Atlantic City, I was shipped to the air base at San Angelo, Texas, where I waited around to be discharged, along with thousands of others who'd completed their missions and for whom there was no longer need elsewhere. Technically, I was employed in the Public Relations office, but I can't remember doing any work at all. Armorer's school took only about three or four months; again, after a month or two of waiting after qualifiying, I was sent to the Santa Ana Army Air Base as an aviation cadet, then to training school as a bombardier. The mission you ask about never happened, and I've never heard of it--not the incident you mention....The timing for the essays should be good. The new novel will be out in early October. Best, Joe [signed clearly in ink]"

      Doubleday & Company, Inc., Garden City 1968 - Large octavo, cloth. First edition. "Mammoth attempt to picture the world as it may well be in the early twenty-first century -- overpopulated, over automated, and torn by riots and muggings. The pop sociologist Chad C. Mulligan comments wryly on it all, and he is the nearest thing to a hero in this densely peopled book.

        True Grit (Inscribed by Charles Portis in 1969)

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1968. Third printing. INSCRIBED by the author on the front endpaper in the year after publication: "For Sissi Brandon / with warmest regards / Charles Portis / March 18, 1969." We have handled a number of signed and inscribed titles by Portis over time, but this is only the second copy we have seen dated prior to the 1980s, making this a significant example. The film rights to Portis' book were sold in a rather heated bidding war after its 1968 serial publication in the Saturday Evening Post. This was followed by the book publication in the fall, then by the shooting of the film between September and December in Colorado, where the reclusive Portis was on location. The author's second novel, basis for the now-classic film starring John Wayne, Glen Campbell and Kim Darby, and the equally classic remake--far more faithful to the text--by Joel and Ethan Coen, starring Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon. Very Good or better in a like dust jacket. Slight lean, some rubbing to the cloth. Jacket shows some shallow creasing, with chipping and short closed tears at the spine corners.

        The Mountains. Illustrated with ten drawings by John Piper, engraved on the wood by Reynolds Stone, with a descriptive note by John Piper.

      - New York: Chilmark Press 1968. 4to, (ii), 42, (6) pages. Original quarter cloth, morocco backstrip with title in gilt, paper-covered boards illustrated with a wood engraving, top edge gilt, slipcase. As new. Limited to 110 special copies in a total edition of 350, signed by the author, artist and engraver, with an extra set of the 10 engravings tipped in and bound thus. (Carter, The Rampant Lions Press: 34). Handset in 18pt Zapf Palatino on mould made paper from Wookey Hole Mill. The third Clover Hill Edition. "Just after the second world war, John Piper and Reynolds Stone, both enthusiasts of nineteenth-century topographical guide-books, decided to produce a modern equivalent, to illustrate the mountains of Snowdonia. They used wood-engraving both as a reproductive process, so that the pictures could be printed together with the text, and as creative interpretations of the drawings, which in several cases Piper did directly on the blocks. We were eager to print these magnificent engravings, and as the Carters and the Stones are close cousins, negotiations were simplified. Douglas Cleverdon persuaded the Welsh poet R.S. Thomas to write some rich poetic prose to accompany them." (Rampant Lions Press). The collaboration of three remarkably talented artists, Thomas (poet), Piper (artist) and Stone (engraver and calligrapher), designed and printed by two of Englands finest printers, Will and Sebastian Carter.
