        Poemes. Gravures Originales sur bois de Marc CHAGALL.

      Gerald Cramer, Geneva. 1968 - First Edition, limited in 238 copies, of which our copy is N. 193 of the 200 exemplars on Rives woven with a watermark designed by the artist. Signed in pencil by Chagall on the justification page. Portfolio of 24 woodcuts in color, 6 of which with collages, hors-text, and all with color enhancements. Loose, guarded in the original Auvergne paper cover, with title in black on the front. Complete with a beige cloth-covered protective board with vellum spine stamped with gilt title, and a matching slipcase. Marc Chagall created 24 color woodcuts to illustrate his poems; the result is this rare portfolio where Chagall also reveals his poetic side. Unfortunately, 6 of the woodcuts are not in very good condition, as they were exposed to the sun and maybe previously framed; however the colors on the plates remain brilliant, and besides the sun tanning, no other damages effect the woodcuts. Pictures of the 6 damaged plates are available on request. The rest of the portfolio, text and woodcuts, is in fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Colonel Sun A James Bond Adventure

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1968,, 1968. FIRST EDITION. THE AUTHOR'S COPY, in a bespoke quarter leather binding of half brown morocco, gilt, commissioned by the publisher for presentation to Amis. Obviously a unique copy, this was likely bound by Ian Fleming's own binder Arthur Last, the style matching closely the author's copies of Cape's original Bond novels now residing at the Lilly Library and researched by Gilbert while producing the forthcoming bibliography. Amis' presentation binding also features his initials tooled in gilt. A typed statement is included, noting this as being the only such copy produced for him, SIGNED in full by Amis. Owned in conjuction with Lucius Books of York. After Ian Fleming's death in 1964, [copyright holders] Glidrose decided to continue the Bond franchise with a series of well-known authors each writing a book under a pen-name. However, only Kingsley Amis took up the offer [writing as 'Robert Markham'], and in 1968 his 007 novel, 'Colonel Sun' was published. Although initial sales proved disappointing, Bond fans now consider it a classic, with a gritty, fast-paced story written in a polished style by the established Amis [effectively re-creating the famous 'Fleming sweep']. Already a part of the 'Bond Family', Amis had previously written a popular critical work on the secret agent entitled 'The James Bond Dossier' (1965), plus the light-hearted 'Book of Bond' (1965), and he was therefore an ideal candidate; at the time, rumours circulated that Amis finished 'The Man With The Golden Gun' upon Fleming's death (only the first draft of the novel had been completed) and that 'Colonel Sun' was offered as an incentive from Glidrose. Haining; Crime Fiction p206. BMC No.1 p.4-13 'James Bond Revivals'. Hubin; Crime Fiction IV. Gilbert, Jon; Ian Fleming: The Bibliography, page 602.

        Zap Comix No. 1

      San Francisco, CA: Apex Novelties, 1968. First Printing (Charles Plymell Edition). Stapled Wrappers. Near Fine. This is the very first printing of Zap Comix No.1, which inaugurated the "underground comix" phenomenon, a highlight of the 1960s counterculture. Robert Crumb illustrated & wrote the entire issue, his subversive genius broke all barriers. Mr. Natural, the "Keep on Truckin'..." figures & other images that made their debut here have resonated in the collective consciousness, & they continue to influence art & culture. As Crumb describes it in Vol. V of the new box set, The Complete Zap Comix (Fantagrafic Books, Inc.; 2014): "I drew one issue in October and one in November (1967). They were twenty-four pages each. It went fast. Don Donahue (publisher of Apex Novelties) saw the original art for Zap and really liked it. Donahue knew Charles Plymell, an old hipster poet who had a small offset printing press, a Multilith 1250. Donahue paid for the first printing of Zap by trading his $300 tape recorder to Plymell in early 1968. The first print run of five thousand copies came out. The first edition had an orange and blue cover, and the cover price was twenty-five cents. Dana (Robert's wife at the time) and I, Donahue, and some friends of ours sold Zap on the street and took it around to all the shops on Haight Street..."(from "Coming Together," pg. 887) The issue Crumb refers to drawing in October 1967 was published as Zap No. 0 in late 1968, around the time that Zap No. 3 was published. Charles Plymell, the "old hipster poet" referred to by Crumb, is of course the noted Beat-&-beyond poet, prose writer & publisher who collaborated with & issued works by William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg & others in addition to Crumb & co. According to Charles & Pamela Beach Plymell, his wife & co-publisher, there were far fewer than the 5,000 copies of the first printing as recalled by Crumb, somewhere between 600-1,500. It is believed that approximately 500 copies were destroyed in a fire. The first printing is distinguished by several points, all present here: A 25-cents cover price, small white border at top & right edge, & orange along with blue, black & white colors on front cover (further printings have 35-cents & over cover price, usually yellow instead of orange & no borders); pagination beginning with "3" & ending with "23" at lower right of interior pages, 24 pages in total as noted by Crumb including front, back inner & outer covers (further printings are unpaginated); the words "Printed by Charles Plymell" in blue fine print at lower left edge of back cover. We are pleased to offer this iconic production, among the rarest & most sought-after by collectors. As famously stated on front cover above the title, "Fair Warning: For Adult Intellectuals Only!" In relatively near-fine condition, considering its notorious fragility: Light to moderate creasing, rubbing, soiling & spotting to front, back covers & stapled spine; tiny bump-creases at corners of same; one approx. 1&1/2" angled crease at lower right corner of front cover. Interior very fine except for inevitable browning of just-above-newspaper-quality page leaves, esp. edges.

        THE ELECTRIC KOOL-AID ACID TEST - SIGNED BY KEN KESEY, ALLEN GINSBERG, WAVY GRAVY, AND TOM WOLFE

      New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1968. Octavo; blue cloth over boards, with titles stamped in silver on the spine; 416pp. A Taiwanese Piracy edition, with the copyright page stating 'First Printing, 1968.' With exception to a few lines in Taiwanese at the bottom of the last page, text is in English, and identical to that of the correct First. As piracies go, this copy bears all the hallmarks of such copies: cheaper, shakier binding and paper, with the boards slightly splayed and a few short tears to the upper text edges - clean throughout, and Very Good+. The jacket is unclipped, bearing the same $5.95 price as the correct First. All points are identical in a side-by-side comparison, with exception to Milton Glaser's jacket art, which in this case has an entirely different color scheme, and gives the appearance that it has been done in marker, pastels, and colored pencil. A Very Good+ example, with minor wear and laminate life along the edges and two small tears at opposite ends of the rear panel. A unique copy, signed and dated (6/13/94) by Allen Ginsberg, generically inscribed by Wavy Gravy, and signed by Ken Kesey in green paint. The book has additionally been signed by Tom Wolfe on the half-title page in his typical, elegant hand. A major work of both the New Journalism and counterculture of the 1960's, with a stunning collection of signatures that would be impossible to replicate today.

        Aneignung und Politik., Gesammelte Reden und Aufsätze zur Geschichte der Philosophie. Herausgegeben von Hans Sauer.

      München, R.Piper & Co. Verlag, 1968 - 517 (3) Seiten mit Folienumschlag, Schnitt minimal angestaubt, auf dem Vorsatz mit Widmung des Verfassers für seinen Verleger Klaus Piper, signiert in Basel am 15.3.(19)68, "Für Klaus Piper, der dies Buch wie meine anderen so vorzüglich betreut hat, ein Zeichen meines Dankes", mit Nachwort des Herausgebers. Karl Theodor Jaspers (* 23. Februar 1883 in Oldenburg; + 26. Februar 1969 in Basel) war ein deutscher Psychiater, der als Philosoph weit über Deutschland hinaus bekannt wurde. Er wurde 1967 Schweizer Staatsbürger. Jaspers gilt als herausragender Vertreter der Existenzphilosophie, die er vom Existentialismus Jean-Paul Sartres strikt unterschied. Er war zunächst Lehrer und anschließend lebenslanger Freund von Hannah Arendt, mit der ihn auch ein jahrzehntelanger Briefwechsel verband. Ursprünglich Mediziner hat Jaspers grundlegend zur wissenschaftlichen Entwicklung der Psychiatrie beigetragen. Sein philosophisches Werk wirkt insbesondere in den Bereichen der Religionsphilosophie, Geschichtsphilosophie und der Interkulturellen Philosophie. Mit seinen einführenden Schriften zur Philosophie hat er hohe Auflagen erreicht und ist so auch einem breiteren Publikum bekannt geworden.

        Andy Warhol: Moderna Muséet Exhibition Catalog

      Stockholm: Moderna Muséet, 1968. FIRST EDITION, profusely illustrated with full-page black and white photographs. Warhol?s Moderna Muséet catalog ?is a fine example of the catalogue-as-artist's-book, a form that ostensibly began with the Dadaists and Surrealists, and is produced with some of the roughest reproductions ever seen, which are entirely appropriate, and supplemented by a long section of Factory snapshots by Billy Name. The genre was revitalized by the Pop movement, and Warhol in particular, which demonstrates his position as a latter-day Dadaist. The Moderna Museet publication especially had a great influence upon Japanese photography in the late 1960s and 1970s, particularly the photobooks of the Provoke era? (Parr and Badger, Vol II).Published by Moderna Muséet, Sweden, in 1968 as an exhibition catalogue for the show "Andy Warhol" at the Moderna Muséet in Stockholm, February - March, 1968.Stockholm: Moderna Muséet, 1968. Quarto (approx. 8.5 x 10.5 in.), original illustrated paper wrappers. Small piece of tape at top of spine; superficial split at center of glue binding (as often), everything holding. An outstanding copy of a fragile book that is extremely prone to wear. Very Good.

        Secondary Worlds

      Random House, New York 1968 - 144 pp., 8vo. Quarter-cloth and paper over boards, in printed dust-jacket. A very good copy, with two minor flaws: soiling and spotting to the foredge, and a binder's flaw at the back (resulting in a slight pulling of the last signature). In an unclipped jacket with slight soiling, darkened spine, and small edge tears. Four essays, delivered in 1967 to inaugurate the series of lectures at the University of Kent in Canterbury founded in memory of T. S. Eliot. Signed by Auden below his crossed-out name on the title page (per his habit), and additionally signed by dedicatee Valerie Eliot below her name on the dedication page. (Eliot's widow Valerie was almost certainly instrumental in the choice of Auden for the inaugural lectures, which he describes in his Foreword as a "signal honor and grave responsibility.") Quite uncommon signed by Auden; and a deeply meaningful association (and very likely unique) signed by both. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Hunting of the Snark. An Agony in Eight Fits/Die Jagd nach dem Schnark. Agonie in acht Kr?mpfen

      (Stuttgart): Manus Presse, 1968. Quarto. (104)pp. One of 130 copies, signed by the artist. Illustrated with nineteen full-page lithographs from etchings by the surrealist Max Ernst. There are also three small vignettes. This is a bilingual edition of Carroll's nonsensical epic poem about a crew of ten men in pursuit of a mythic beast. Vividly colored illustrations are paired with the original English poem, and the same images are repeated in stark black & white to accompany the German text, translated by Klaus Reichert. The Hunting of the Snark was created late in Ernst's career and was the second of three works by Lewis Carroll illustrated by him. Born in Germany, Ernst began his career in art in the 1910s, inspired by the work of post-Impressionist artists and Pablo Picasso. Although primarily a painter, he also branched out into collage, sculpture, and lithographic printing, and he finally achieved financial success after the publication of his treatise, "Beyond Painting," in 1948. Loose, as issued, in publisher's cloth chemise and slipcase. Slight fading, soiling, and a small bump to slipcase, otherwise fine.
