        Cancer Ward].

      Il Saggiatore Milano 1968 - Octavo (18.5 x 12 cm). 320 pp; some pages slightly browned. Publisher's printed wrappers; very lightly soiled. Fine copy of the first edition of the literary masterpiece, which together with Solzhenitsyn's earlier works brought him the Nobel Prize in 1970. "Solzhenitsyn based Cancer Ward on his own experiences of being treated for cancer in Tashkent after he had been freed from the Gulag. The work was written between 1963 and 1967 and Solzhenitsyn had originally hoped that it would be published in the Soviet Union. Novyi Mir accepted the work and printed off galley proofs for the first eight chapters in 1967, but in the end it proved too controversial. Cancer Ward was widely circulated in samizdat and eventually copies reached the West where editions were issued by several different publishers. There are significant textual differences between the different samizdat editions. The Milanese edition of Cancer Ward contains just over half the novel; a second volume was envisaged but never printed. Despite being incomplete it is still considered to be the first publication. The author is listed as "Anonymous", presumably in order to protect Solzhenitsyn from any possible repercussions. The publishing information in the book states that it was printed in February 1968, but it likely came out in March or April. Very rare." (Matthew). T. Mathew, A guide to the Russian editions of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's major works. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Ronald Reagan writes to an old friend "it was good to reminisce about those Des Moines days ?" - his first job was as a sports announcer in Iowa

      [Sacramento, California], January 16, 1968. 8" x 6.25". "Draft Autograph Letter Signed ""Ronald Reagan"" as Governor of California, 1 page, 8"" x 6.25"". [Sacramento, California, January 16, 1968]. To Bertha Glasscock. On lined yellow paper, cut from a larger sheet. Fine condition.Governor Reagan's secretary, Cathy Davis, has penned the date above Reagan's letter (""1/16/68"") which she then typed, and then drew a diagonal line in red ink across the text, indicating she had typed it for his signature.In full, ""To Bertha Glasscock. Dear Mrs. Glasscock. I've just had word from Al Crandall and so discovered your where abouts. I was happy to learn of your pleasant life in Texas and it was good to reminisce about those Des Moines days. I wish you the very best & who knows maybe some day Texas-Calif business will make it possible for our paths to cross. Best Regards Ronald Reagan""In December 1932, six months after he graduated from Eureka College, then 21-year-old Ronald Reagan got a job as a sports announcer at radio station WOC in Davenport, Iowa. When WOC and WHO in Des Moines, Iowa merged in April 1933, he moved to Des Moines as chief radio announcer. He broadcasted Chicago Cubs home games based on telegraph reports from Wrigley Field. In March 1937, while with the Cubs during spring training in California, Reagan made a screen test for Warner Bros. who signed him to a movie contract in April. The rest, as they say, is history.Governor of California since 1967, seven months after he wrote this letter, Reagan's name was placed in nomination for President at the 1968 Republican National Convention. On the first ballot, with 667 needed to win, he received 182 votes and finished third behind Nixon (692) and Rockefeller (277). "

One of 500 un- numbered copies. Very good overall. INSCRIBED by both Warsh and Waldman to Izzy Young. Also includes a TLS from Waldman to Young, approx. 85 words dat- ed May 29th, 1968. In part: ?"I?'m afraid we might be getting a shack in Maine or something - The Berrigans have already left & so things have quieted down a bit, but St. Marks Place is really get- ting to our nerves.?" Young was a central figure throughout the 1960s NYC music and literary scenes. He founded the Folklore Center, produced Dylan's first concert in 1961 (Dylan even wrote a song for/about him, "Talking Folklore Center"), and was close to Sanders, helping to print several titles from from his Fuck You Press on the mimeo machine at the Center. Handsome collaboration from Waldman and Warsh, with covers designed by Joe Brainard, published by Brainard?'s press, and with a warm as- sociation.

        [Collection of Color Transparency Slides of Jimi Hendrix]

      [New York], 1968. Near fine. Eight Kodak color transparency slides. 2" square with image area 1 3/8" x 15/16" approx. Date-stamped "MAR 68" to border of verso. No- tated in ink outside of image area with names, numbers. Clean, well preserved. Near fine. High-resolution jpgs of all images provided. A collection of exceptional but presumably unpublished images of Jimi Hendrix performing at New York City's Hunter College on March 2, 1968. Seven capture the guitar hero on stage: with his signature Stratocaster, kneeling before a giant stack of amplifiers, playing with his teeth, etc. The eighth is a candid portrait, likely snapped backstage. Though we've been unable to determine the photographer, the photos are of clear professional caliber and bear a certain re- semblance to the work of legendary rock-and-roll photographer El- liott Landy. An iconic selection of original vintage slides capturing the signature style of a rock legend.

      Trevi 1968 Iø ediz. In 8 p., pp. 186. Bross. Cop. illustr. con bandelle. Collana "La Voce", 2. L'edizione ? stata curata graficamente da Toni Bonavita. Segni del tempo alle cop. ant. e post. Dal Sito Web Art e Bibliophilia: Un altro testo molto raro di C?line ? la pi?ce teatrale L'Eglise, scritta nel '33 e rappresentata per la prima volta in Francia - con scarso successo - nel 1936 a Lione. L'edizione italiana conserva il titolo originale e viene stampata nel 1968 dalla casa editrice romana Trevi, a cura di Rino di Silvestro e Giovanni Maria Russo. Il libro viene stampato in occasione della rappresentazione della pi?ce a Roma l'anno precedente, in anteprima italiana, curata dagli autori del testo. Interessante la copertina, probabilmente tratta da una foto della rappresentazione, che ricorda certi cataloghi di mostra di artisti coevi come Michelangelo Pistoletto o Mario Schifano. Raffigura due uomini nell'atto di "picchiare" un personaggio dai capelli lunghi - tipico uomo sessantottino - vestito con una bandiera americana. Infatti L'Eglise, come precisa l'editore nella prefazione, ? "una feroce satira verso organismi internazionali come L'ONU, e consimili" (L. - F. C?line, I sotto uomini, cit. p.9).

        Tarzan of the Movies

      New York: The Citadel Press,, [1968]. A pictorial history of more than fifty years of Edgar Rice Burroughs' legendary hero. Quarto. Original black boards, titles to spine in red. With the pictorial dust jacket. With black and white photographs. Extremities lightly rubbed. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Extraordinarily inscribed by seven actors who portrayed Tarzan and Jane between the 1920s and 60s to Hollywood eccentric and 1960s cult figure Bongo Wolf. Of the three Tarzans Johnny Weissmuller is by far the best-known. He was the sixth Tarzan and invented the apeman's signature yell. James H. Pierce (Tarzan no. 4) was the last of the silent film era and Jock Mahoney became the thirteenth Tarzan in 1962. The four Janes are silent movie star Louise Lorraine (Jane no. 3), her predecessor Karla Schramm, Vanessa Brown (no. 8) and Eve Brent (no. 12). Bongo Wolf (real name William Donald Grollman) was a fixture of 1960s Hollywood, easily recognisable by his fake vampire fangs, his bongo drums and his limp. In an interview for The Independent in 2007, his friend, the musician P. J. Proby, said: "Last I heard, Bongo had been kidnapped in Louisiana by this drug pusher.

        The Opening of the Western-Eye.

      The Social Science Association Press of Thailand, Bangkok 1968 - First edition in English of the Dalai Lama’s first book on Buddhist philosophy. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the author on the title page in Tibetan "with prayers." A near fine copy in a excellent dust jacket that is lightly rubbed. Rare, especially signed. The Opening the Eye of the Western Eye is a succinct, thorough overview of the doctrines of Buddhism as they have been practiced for a thousand years in Tibet. The Dalai Lama here discusses the need for religious practice and the importance of kindness and compassion. Originally written for Tibetan lay people, this was the Dalai Lama's first book on Buddhist philosophy to appear in English. Written for both Tibetan and Western readers, Opening the Eye of New Awareness is the Dalai Lama's first religious work. It is not an edited transcript of public lectures, but is His Holliness' own summation of Buddhist doctrine and practice. Completed in 1963, just four years after his escape from Tibet and four years after completing his religious education, it is a work of consummate scholarship by a twenty-seven year-old geshe, wise beyond his years.

        Human Cardiac Transplantation. An Evaluation of the First Two Operations Performed at the Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town. [Offprint from The American Journal of Cardiology, vol. 22, nr. 4, pp. 584-596].

      New York, 1968. Lex 8vo. Bound with the original wrappers in very nice full burgundy cloth with gilt lettering to front board. Signed by the author on the front wrapper ("Chris Barnard") and dated "16/5/69". A very nice, clean, and fresh copy. Title-page + pp. 584-596.. First printing in the rare offprint, signed and dated by the author, of Barnard's second publication on the seminal performance of the world's first human heart transplantations, one of the most important medical performances in the course of history - "the most publicised event in world medical history". This medical breakthrough introduced to the world a way to prolong life that would become of seminal importance to modern man.Barnard famously carried out the world's first human-to-human heart transplant on December 3 1967, which he described in a paper three weeks later. The patent, Louis Washkansky, a 54-year-old grocer suffering from diabetes and incurable heart disease, died of double pneumonia on December 21 that same year. But nonetheless, the operation became a worldrenowned success. Merely a month later, on January 2 1968, Barnard conducted the world's second human heart transplant, inscribing himself into history once again. This time, the patient, Philip Blaiberg, survived for 19 months. The present paper is the first to describe these two seminal performances together. "Christiaan (Chris) Barnard was born in 1922 and qualified in medicine at the University of Cape Town in 1946. Following surgical training in South Africa and the USA, Barnard established a successful open-heart surgery programme at Groote Schuur Hospital and the University of Cape Town in 1958. In 1967, he led the team that performed the world's first human-to-human heart transplant. The article describing this remarkable achievement was published in the South African Medical Journal just three weeks after the event and is one of the most cited articles in the cardiovascular field. In the lay media as well, this first transplant remains the most publicised event in world medical history. Although the first heart transplant patient survived only 18 days, four of Groote Schuur Hospital's first 10 patients survived for more than one year, two living for 13 and 23 years, respectively. This relative success amid many failures worldwide did much to generate guarded optimism that heart transplantation would eventually become a viable therapeutic option. This first heart transplant and subsequent ongoing research in cardiac transplantation at the University of Cape Town and in a few other dedicated centres over the subsequent 15 years laid the foundation for heart transplantation to become a well-established form of therapy for end-stage cardiac disease. During this period from 1968 to 1983, Chris Barnard and his team continued to make major contributions to organ transplantation, notably the development of the heterotopic ( 'piggy-back') heart transplants; advancing the concept of brain death, organ donation and other related ethical issues; better preservation and protection of the donor heart (including hypothermic perfusion storage of the heart; studies on the haemodynamic and metabolic effects of brain death; and even early attempts at xenotransplantation."

        [Offprint]: The Origin of the Yellow Submarine

      [1968]. First. One page photocopied from a scholarly journal. Two vertical creases else about fine. A work of facetious scholarship delineating the origins of the yellow submarine "myth," created by Erich Segal, who wrote the screenplay for the film. In addition to writing novels such as Love Story, Segal was a professor of Greek and Latin literature at Harvard University and other universities. Inscribed by Erich Segal in red felt tip pen: "Regards -- T. Quid." Apparently this was published in 1968 as an appendix to the novelization of the film. We have only seen one other example of this literary hoax, similarly copied, folded, and inscribed. .

        L'espace littéraire Service de presse ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Paris: Gallimard, 1968. Fine. Gallimard, Paris 1968, 11x16,5cm, broché. - 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! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition au format de poche, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Emouvant et précieux envoi autographe signé de Maurice Blanchot à sa soeur Marguerite : "Pour ma très chère soeur, Marguerite, ce livre, prémisses peut-être de "la fin du livre" avec les tendres excuses de MB." Marguerite Blanchot, organiste de renom à la cathédrale de Chalon, demeura toute sa vie dans la maison familiale, avec sa mère et sa tante. "Elle deviendra peu à peu, pour la famille, comme la mémoire des origines." Très proche de Maurice, elle correspond régulièrement avec l'écrivain qui lui témoigne une grande reconnaissance pour son dévouement envers leur mère impotente. Si l'intense affection de Blanchot pour sa mère et sa soeur transparait dans les dédicaces de celui-ci, on ne sait presque rien de leurs relations. Dans l'unique essai biographique sur Blanchot, Christophe Bident nous révèle cependant : "Marguerite Blanchot vénérait son frère Maurice. Très fière de lui, (...) elle attachait une grande importance à ses idées politiques (...). Elle lisait beaucoup (...) Ils se téléphonaient, correspondaient. A distance, ils partageaient la même autorité naturelle, le même souci de discrétion." Blanchot lui adresse en effet de nombreux ouvrages provenant de sa bibliothèque, maintenant avec elle un lien intellectuel continu. Agréable exemplaire.

        Archive of Anthony Hecht Materials [Signed 10X and Initialed 5X]

      New York State: Anthony Hecht, Various publication dates. First edition. Very Good. A quite scarce, and rare-to-the-market Anthony Hecht Archive, with each item being in Very Good or better condition, containing many items signed by Anthony Hecht, illustrating the inner workings of book publishing and providing an interesting insight into the business side of the great Poet's life. Anthony Hecht's poetry is noted for confronting the Twentieth Century's horrors, particularly those of World War II (in which Hecht fought) and the Holocaust, both of which were recurring themes in his work. Although his parents opposed his becoming a Poet, even going so far as to have family friend Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) try to dissuade Hecht from his chosen career, Hecht, having been inspired by the works of Wallace Stevens, W. H. Auden, and T. S. Eliot, persevered, ultimately becoming one of the greatest Poets of his era and winning the 1968 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for his second collection of verse, "The Hard Hours". Hecht also won the 1983 Bollingen Prize, the 1988 Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, the 1989 Aiken Taylor Award for Modern American Poetry, the 1997 Wallace Stevens Award, the 1999/2000 Frost Medal, the Tanning Prize, and The National Medal of Arts, as well as a number of other Awards and Fellowships. From 1982 - 1984, he served as the twenty-seventh United States Poet Laureate (officially Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress), placing him in the company of America's greatest Poets such as Robert Frost, Robert Penn Warren, William Carlos Williams, Stephen Spender, and others. The "Anthony Hecht Poetry Prize" is given annually in his honor. In spite of his stellar reputation as a Poet and the recognition he received for his work, this Archive reveals that revenues from his work were not sufficient to support Hecht and his young family. In consequence, Hecht derived most of his income from teaching at the University of Rochester and Hecht's signed letters contained herein are on University Letterhead. The Archive, from the file of Hecht's Literary Agent, Joan Daves, contains four checks (in rather low amounts) made payable to Hecht and representing revenue from his literary work, one of which is endorsed by Hecht, two of which are endorsed by Hecht and his wife Helen, and the fourth of which was deposited without endorsement; five typed letters signed (by Hecht), each dated 1972 or 1973, five contracts signed by Anthony Hecht and other parties; as well as copies of relevant letters, bios, and publicity information provided by Hecht. In the letters, Hecht discusses publishing efforts and plans for "Seven Against Thebes", including plans for a special edition of the work to be produced by Leonard Baskin at Ghenna Press, the birth of his son, the provision of publicity information, and retrieving the original manuscript and the master galleys of one of his works from Oxford University Press (the publication of which had been canceled as noted below). The original signed contracts are as follows: (i) contract with Atheneum dated "9/24/70" for the translation by Hecht and Helen Bacon of Aeschylus?' "Seven Against Thebes" signed by Hecht, Bacon, and Atheneum; (ii) contract with Oxford University Press (OUP) dated October 20, 1972 signed by Hecht, Bacon, and OUP and initialed by Hecht and by Bacon at the bottom of 5 pages (all but the signature page where no initials were called for) -- stapled to which is an original letter on Atheneum letterhead from Alfred Knopf, Jr. reverting all rights granted Atheneum under the above-described 9/24/70 contract to Hecht and Bacon, signed by Alfred Knopf, Jr. and by Joan Daves, entered into so that Hecht and Bacon could enter a contract for the same work with "another publisher" (leading, of course to the foregoing OUP contract; (iii) contract with OUP dated July 17, 1973 for Oedipus At Colonus (a translation of Sophocles' work) signed by Hecht and by George Dimock as "Authors" and signed by OUP; (iv) Letter Agreement dated December 15, 1975 by and among Hecht, Dimock, and OUP mutually releasing each other from all obligations under the July 17, 1973 contract for Oedipus At Colonus together with an original letter signed from OUP to Joan Daves' Agency returning the original mutual release as well as copies of other relevant correspondence, and further including an additional original signed letter from OUP explaining that the project was canceled because Hecht, having found it impossible to work with Dimock given Dimock's interpretation of the Play, had requested the release ; (v) contract with OUP for Oedipus At Kolonus (a second try at the translation of the Sophocles Play) dated February 26, 1980 signed by Hecht and by William Arrowsmith as Author and signed by OUP. Thus we have a quite scarce Archive of Anthony Hecht materials including ten items signed by him, one of which also is initialed by him five times, yielding a total of 15 original Hecht evidences of his Agreement to, or statement of, various matters. The Archive provides an excellent look at Hecht's attempts to get his work published, some successful, some not, and illustrating both the low level of monetary reward won for such work and Hecht's persistence at it. A RARE ARCHIVE OF MATERIALS, MANY OF WHICH ARE SIGNED, RELATED TO ONE OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY'S MOST NOTABLE POETS.
