        IN A NARROW GRAVE Essays on Texas

      Austin: Encino Press, 1968. First edition. No binding. Very good to near fine set. Rare advance long galley proofs of the "skycrapers" edition. This set of the galleys is inscribed by the publisher William Witliff on the first sheet "First page proof / July 22, 1968 / Wm Witliff." Certainly the most scarce McMurtry item. When numerous typographical errors were discovered in the text of this first printing, the most notable, of some 60 corrections, was the word "skycrapers" in place of the intended "skyscrapers", line 13 of page 105. It was with this discovery Witliff decided to scrap the entire edition and print a corrected one. Reportedly only a dozen copies of this printing escaped destruction (noted bookman Peter Howard declared, " informal census of copies I have either examined or know of through reliable information locates approximately twenty-two copies of the "skycrapers edition..." Housed in a custom-made cloth box with a plastic see-through top, with spine label.

        The Double Helix: A Personal Account of the Discovery of the Structure of DNA.

      Atheneum, New York 1968 - First edition of the author's ground breaking work regarding the discovery of DNA. Octavo, original blue cloth. Signed by James D. Watson on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a tiny closed tear. A superior example. "Science seldom proceeds in the straightforward logical manner imagined by outsiders," writes James Watson in The Double Helix, his account of his codiscovery (along with Francis Crick) of the structure of DNA. Watson and Crick won Nobel Prizes for their work, and their names are memorized by biology students around the world. But as in all of history, the real story behind the deceptively simple outcome was messy, intense, and sometimes truly hilarious. To preserve the "real" story for the world, James Watson attempted to record his first impressions as soon after the events of 1951-1953 as possible, with all their unpleasant realities and "spirit of adventure" intact.

        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.

        The Voyage: And Other Versions Of Poems By Baudelaire

      Faber 1968 - 4to, pp. 60. Original black boards, lettered in gilt on spine. Illustrated dustwrapper. Two brochures for the Sidney Nolan Trust laid in. Small bookplate of Kenneth Clark to front pastedown, later gift inscription to ffep., chipping to head and closed tear to foot of spine, some marking to rear panel. 24 illustrations, 8 in colour, all by Sidney Nolan. First trade edition, INSCRIBED BY SIDNEY NOLAN TO KENNETH CLARK: 'K + Jane, Love from Sidney + Cynthia 1968'. With the bookplate of Kenneth Clark to front pastedown. Kenneth Clark has long been credited with bringing Australia's foremost artist Sidney Nolan [1917-1992] to worldwide attention. Nolan had produced his famous series of paintings of Ned Kelly in the 1940s, but it was his landscapes that first captivated Clark, who first travelled to Australia in 1949, and who happened to be writing his book Landscape Into Art (1949) during the voyage. Nolan's work chimed perfectly both with Clark's current preoccupations and with his general artistic taste. Clark bought his first Nolan painting during this visit, and would go on to acquire a large collection. Nolan travelled to England in 1950, settling in London the following year, and the two remained lifelong friends until Clark's death in 1983. (Kenneth Clark's wife was christened Elizabeth, but renamed herself Jane while at Oxford -- hence the 'J' of the inscription.) A wonderful association copy, bearing witness to an important and enduring artistic friendship. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Collection of Color Transparency Slides of Jim Morrison]

      [New York], 1968. Near fine. Eight Kodak color transparency slides. 2" square with image areas 1 3/8" x 15/16" approx. Date stamped "MAR 68" to border of verso. Notated in ink outside of image area with names, numbers. Clean, well preserved. Near fine. High-resolution jpgs of all images provided. A collection of presumably unpublished images of Jim Morrison at New York's Fillmore East, March 22, 1968. Three of Morrison on stage (two pictured) with five intimate close-ups likely captured backstage. A particularly poignant shot has him leaning into the microphone with a light projection behind. This two-night, four-show, Fillmore engagement produced what are often considered some of the best shows of the band's career. Though we've been unable to determine the pho- tographer, they are of clear professional caliber and bear a certain resemblance to the work of legendary rock-and-roll photographer Elliott Landy. A striking group of original vintage slides.

      New York: Grove Press, 1968. Hardcover. Near Fine. One of the 26 numbered and signed copies, the true first edition. Very near fine brown cloth over off-white paper boards. No wear or soiling to the fragile boards, corners completely sharp. No soiling to the easily soiled cloth spine, lettering completely clear, spine maybe just a touch lighter than the rest of the 1/4 cloth (see last photo and zoom in). There is a little fold in the cloth on the top of the spine that is not a bump. See photos. Contents very near fine, no foxing, no markings of any kind in the book. Sewn binding tight. The deep gutter-edges of several gatherings toned (1/4 inch) by the glue that was used in the binding. The best copy of an impossibly rare book. Many, including Harold Bloom, have argued that Endgame is the greatest dramatic work of the twentieth century. Beckett thought it his best. Because of the severe limitation (26 copies), the book will eventually become a Black Tulip of twentieth century literature. No copies at auction in the last decade. I can think of only one twentieth-century highspot issued with a smaller limitation: Winnie the Pooh, which had only 20 signed in the extra limited. By contrast, there were 50 signed copies of Hart Crane's The Bridge, 100 of Joyce's Ulysses, 170 of Lawrence's Seven Pillars of Wisdom. I hesitate to end.

        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.

        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. Warsh has written of this book: ?"I like this book [...] because of Joe?'s covers, and because of the format. Anne and I had just married, and this was his gift?" (Schlesinger and Birmingham 2). [Clay and Phillips 266].

        [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.

A beautifully produced book, printed at the Rampant Lions Press. " [It is Thomas's] most engaging piece of English prose... a centrally significant work, despite its relative brevity and its critical neglect... [Piper's] drawings have the atmospheric precision of an artist who had long made himself at home in the Snowdon range; the wood engravings have the cool accuracy of fine sculpture - like the carved lettering of which Reynolds Stone is a master. And R. S. Thomas's words have a corresponding precision, a sense of actual place" (W. Moelwyn Merchant, R. S. Thomas, 1990, pp. 3 & 56).

        L'?glise (L'assemblea). Traduzione, riduzione, adattamento Giovanni Maria Russo, Rino Di Silvestro.

      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.
