        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.

        1968 Original FRANK SINATRA - SIGNED - SCREENPLAY / SCRIPT "THE LADY IN CEMENT" Rare Early Sinatra Signature

      TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX / ARCOLA-MILLFIELD 1968 - ORIGINAL FINAL SHOOTING SCRIPT / SCREENPLAY of the TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX / ARCOLA-MILLFIELD PRODUCTION of "THE LADY IN CEMENT". The film Starred FRANK SINATRA as Tony Rome, and Raquel Welch. This Original Screenplay is SIGNED by FRANK SINATRA on the Title Page. The screenplay is dated FEBRUARY 21, 1968. It was Written by Marvin Albert and Jack Guss, (based on the novel by Marvin Albert). Though the title-page states "Final", this was clearly still a work-in-progress. There are numerous blue colored sheets dated 3/4/68 and 3/5/68 that are mixed in with the white sheets, obviously with changes, corrections and/or additions. Also, the film was released on November 20, 1968, nine months after this "final" draft screenplay, meaning there was time for many other changes. Printed blue-paper covers, bound with 3 brass brads, mimeographed inner pages, 8.5x11", white paper mixed with blue paper, 133 pages plus the title page, pages printed on one side only. LADY IN CEMENT is a 1968 Detective Film, Directed by Gordon Douglas and starring FRANK SINATRA as TONY ROME and Raquel Welch as Kit Forrester. A sequel to the 1967 film "TONY ROME" that also Starred Frank Sinatra. Based on the novel by Marvin H. Albert, Lady In Cement was released on November 20, 1968. Condition: The front cover has staining and shorelining from what looks to be an old coffee spill that was quickly wiped up, there is also a bit on the back cover; the covers are creased and worn where they overhang the inner pages; the front page edges (edges of the closed screenplay) have some foxing; the title page has a splattering of old coffee drops to its blank upper front margin and a vertical crease where the page may have once been folded, but the printing remains clear and clean, and Frank Sinatra's signature is bold and bright; the last page has a small amount of very light old staining; the rest of the inner pages are very nice - complete, tight, bright, clean and unmarked. Though coffee (perhaps from Sinatra's cup?) was spilled on the front cover, this screenplay remains solid and nice, with its Original Covers, and the Wonderful EARLY SIGNATURE of the Great FRANK SINATRA. VERY RARE FRANK SINATRA - TONY ROME SCREENPLAY, SIGNED BY SINATRA. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Very slight sunning at the extremities, else fine. Issued unsigned, this copy is Inscribed by the author: "for Herb Yellin, something of an angel himself. John." Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association and a very uncommon title. .

        [Poster]: Michael McClure's The Beard. Directed by Robert Gist. Warner Playhouse

      [Los Angeles]: Warner Playhouse. [1968]. Poster. Photographically illustrated on thin card stock printed in red, black, and gray. Approximately 8.5" x 14.5". A bit skinned on the verso where tape has been removed, else very near fine. Poster for the 1968 Los Angeles premiere of the play, where it had migrated after the productions had been shut down in both New York and San Francisco for the simulated oral sex scene in the play. The cast of the L.A. production were arrested 14 nights in a row. In a letter to Stan Brakhage in September 1968, McClure complained, "I'll have to return to L.A. for the opening of the trial of Beard, which starts September 16." The poster was designed by Wallace Berman, publisher of Semina and considered by some as the "Father of Assemblage Art," who also provided the photograph of his bare-breasted wife Shirley seen holding a worn pair of boots which graces the poster. Jim Morrison of The Doors attended the L.A. performance and apparently expressed interest in playing the lead in a film version, but alas that contribution to film history went unfulfilled. .

Since he could no longer fight, he earned money through a series of speaking engagements on college campuses. On June 28, 1971, in Clay v. United States, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously reversed the lower court?s decision.

        Manuale Tipografico 1788.

      - Verona: Officina Bodoni, 1968. 4to., 184 pp. of facsimile type specimens. With a portrait frontispiece of Bodoni. Original Bodoni-style orange paper covered boards, printed paper backstrip label, dust jacket, edges untrimmed. Limited to 180 numbered copies of a total of 206 copies produced, of which 26 lettered copies were not for sale (this is no. 51). This edition reproduces the glorious quarto edition of the Bodoni 1788 Manuale Tipografico with its 155 fonts of romans and italics and 29 fonts in Greek. Each of the former begins with the name of an Italian city followed by a brief description of it. The original 1788 Manuale was probably issued in editions of fewer than 50 copies in quarto and 100 in octavo. It was so rare that Updike wrote that he had never seen it. Needless to say, Giovanni Mardersteig has done a superb job of reprinting this rare and wonderful type specimen book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Calendar 1969

      Tokyo, 1968. First Edition. Stiff Folder. Near Fine. 39 by 29.5 cm folder, with 12 brightly colored monthly plates, 37 by 29 cm. Serizawa (1895-1984) was a much celebrated and decorated fabric and textile designer. In 1956 he was proclaimed by the Emperor "Holder of an Important Intangible Cultural Property", a title known outside Japan as a "Human National Treasure" of Japan. And in 1976 he was appointed Member of the Order of Cultural Merit. He began issuing calendars, each different from the prior ones, in 1946, and continued to do them until his death. The artwork and appearance of the calendars is highly distinctive, with their dazzling colors, their brash, broad-brush typography, their bold, whimsical, folk art-inspired and often playful imagery arranged idiosyncratically. Serizawa was applying his artistic sensibility and technique from textile work onto paper, and the result is unlike virtually anything else one is likely to have ever viewed. Serizawa's technique, known as "Kataezome", was a traditional one that had fallen into disuse. Basically it involved stencils combined with dye-resistent paste. Serizawa also relied on vegetable colors. In reviving Kataezome, Serizawa involved himself in every step of the process. The results bear some kinship to colorful Japanese toy catalogues, but these calendars have an explosion of color and collage-like composition that easily sets them apart from these catalogues all the same. The artwork here proclaims a freedom in so many ways, and yet they are clearly painstaking in their technique and are all of a piece and relate well to one another. With instruction sheet for hanging. Light and smallish dampstain on lower edge of folder front cover. Minor creasing to plates along edges here and there.
