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.

In 1968, Mississippi had a total of 29 Black elected officials. Muhammad Ali went to Mississippi just days before the election, no doubt to urge registered Black voters to vote.

        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.

It has been priced accordingly.

        The Bikeriders

Sharp copy, despite the minor defects. Housed in a clamshell slipcase.. First Edition. Octavo. The scarce cloth issue of Danny Lyon's first book. One of the iconic American photobooks of the sixties.

Interestingly, some of the images in the book were originally shot in color, but financial limitations of the publisher necessitated publishing in black and white.

        REJECTION LETTER FROM D.A. LEVY TO DANTE THOMAS

      Cleveland, OH: S.i., [1968]. Half-page ALS, written on verso of a sheet of 8.5" x 11" lined notebook paper. Neat horizontal fold at center, with some numerical notations in levy's hand scrawled on recto; Near Fine. Together with the original 8.5" x 11.5" mailing envelope; edgeworn, with small tears, postage marks; Very Good. Brief rejection letter from d.a. levy to Dante Thomas, pseudonym of Dante Thomas Zaccagnini, distinguished Professor of English at SUNY Genesco from 1966 through the early 1990's. Thomas had submitted poems for inclusion in a late (unnamed) levy publication, to which levy responded: "nice poems, but sorry - im all filled up for now - try QUIXOTE...since you did not enclose a return envelope im not even sure if you wanted this back - postage due because i cant afford it." levy was no stranger to rejection (Kent State has an entire file with rejection letter he received), and given the tone of the letter, his circumstances were clearly dire. Mailing envelope postmarked October 16, 1968; levy would take his own life little more than a month after this was mailed. Rare.

        Sex Rebel: Black (memoirs of a gash gourmet)

      San Diego: Greenleaf Classics, 1968. Paperback. 368p., introduction, small date stamp on first page otherwise very good first mass-market paperback edition in pictorial wraps. Greenleaf Classic GC323. Erotic fiction masquerading as an autobiographical case-study which includes several scenes of male homosexuality, bisexuality etc. Standard 1960s Greenleaf material except that this book was penned by African American journalist, poet and political and labor movement activist, Frank Marshall Davis who wrote for the Honolulu Record the paper of the ILWU, and was under investigation by HUAC for statements made in the Record. President Obama was acquainted with Davis in Hawaii as a youth. Right-wing conspiracy theorists have attempted to paint the friendship as something dark and dangerous; some even claim that he was Obama's real father. This cataloguer's opinion: it is a shame Davis' political and social beliefs did not rub off on the future president. Three holdings located in OCLC as of 7/2015

        BILLY - WITH A FLOCKED SANDPAPER COVER DESIGNED BY ED RUSCHA

      Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles 1968 - np (64pp), 41 b&w and 10 color illustrations. With an exhibition history and bibliography. Designed by Edward Ruscha. In a custom protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "Billy" is the innovatively designed and bound catalogue published in conjunction with the first major Museum retrospective of the noted Venice surfer-cum-motorcycle-racer-cum artist Billy Al Bengston. Its covers are two sheets of 50 and 100 grit Garnet sandpaper with Ed Ruscha's emblematic "Billy" flocked in pink on the front, and clasped through the spine by two machine bolts with hexagonal nuts that also secure a pink satin ribbon page marker. Each of the forty-six exhibited works by the Ferus Gallery-affiliated artist is reproduced, including more than a dozen of his innovative "dento" paintings on aluminum. Bengston was the real life "Moondoggie" to Kathy Kohner's "Gidget" in the popular Frederick Kohner novel of the same name, and the frontispiece portrait of the artist as a young man is by Don Bachardy. The design and installation for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art exhibition was by Frank Gehry! A brand new, most handsome example of this ultra-cool Ruscha-inflected objet with the "67X The Authorized Version / Bengston Bio" attributed to Alan D. Shean printed as a single tissue sheet laid in, as issued.
