        Touching Autograph letter signed by David Ben-Gurion about Bar Mitzvah celebrations for orphans of soldiers killed in the recent Six-Day War

      "Autograph letter signed ""David Ben-Gurion"", in Hebrew, one page, 8vo, February 28, 1968, addressed to Shifra Golombian (a war widow). Ben-Gurion praises the Habad Youth initiative to make a Bar Mitzvah ceremony to orphans of soldiers who were killed in the Six-Days war only a year earlier. He regretfully rejects her invitation to take part in the ceremony due to previous engagements and acknowledges her pain and grief. A full translation is included. Ben-Gurion was among the founders of Mapai which governed Israel during the first three decades of its existence. He stepped down as Prime Minister, on personal grounds (as he explained) in 1963, and, in fact, nominated Levi Eshkol to be his successor. One year later a rivalry developed between the two on the issue of the Lavon Affair. Ben-Gurion broke with the party in June 1965 over Eshkol's handling of the Lavon affair and formed a new party, Rafi which won ten seats in the Knesset. As tensions loomed before the outbreak of the Six-Day War in 1967, Ben-Gurion strongly urged that Israel must have a Great Power on its side. After the war ended with large Israeli territorial gains, Ben-Gurion argued that Israel should not keep any territorial gains of the Six-Day War, other than a united Jerusalem and the Golan Heights.In 1968, when Rafi merged with Mapai to form the Alignment, Ben-Gurion refused to reconcile with his old party due to it postponing plans to reform the electoral system (Ben-Gurion wanted to see a constituency-based system introduced to replace the chaotic proportional representation method). He formed another new party, the National List, which won four seats in the 1969 election. Small paper loss at the blank top edge, handling marks, still about fine."

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2 separate large 8vo sheets, in pencil, n.p. n.d., but ca 1968

      Very Good. To Harry Kevis, VP of United States Automotive, Inc., Baker writes that his phone is disconnected and he hardly works due to, "fear on the part of would be brokers or club owners...." He continues in relation to Kevis's letter to him included. "I was sort of shocked to learn of your having resigned your commission...You don't say too much about this battery chemical but it sounds very interesting. I don't suppose you could use a West Coast Distributorship (naturally with ole chet as chief in command)...I'd really like to have something else to fall back on...I'm still Donte's in N. can take Nick's spot as yet I haven't let him in on it...." He encourages Kevis to think about a distributorship run by Baker, sends regards from his family and signs, "Ciao, Chet." The letter is accompanied by the original TLS by Harry Kevis dated March 26, 1968 and a copy of a TLS from Harry Kevis indicating he wil be in Los Angeles on April 4, won't be able to play but will visit Donte's. A heroin addict, Baker was severely beaten later in 1968, the year of this letter, stopped playing until he could rehabilitate his mouth, eventually moved to New York, then played in Europe until his death. He remains a jazz legend.

Tous les tirages comportent au verso le tampon d'Ugo Mulas ainsi que diverses annotations. Huit d'entre eux comportent dans les angles des tirages des repères tracés à l'encre visant à les caler lors de leur reproduction et au verso, l'annotation "tel" : ce sont ces tirages qui ont été reproduits, exactement au même format, dans le catalogue de la Galerie de France (pp. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 et 13). Le dernier tirage, représentant trois dessins de Folon posés sur sa table de travail, ne figure pas dans le catalogue : il est inédit. Très rare ensemble de huit des quatorze photographies d'Ugo Mulas (et d'une photographie non retenue) pour le catalogue de la deuxième exposition personnelle de Jean-Michel Folon.

In a Fine, price-clipped dust jacket with just a few spots where the black jacket is rubbed at the spine ends. A lovely copy of the book. Cormac McCarthy's second novel, published in 1968, "Outer Dark" follows the story of a brother and sister who commit incest - and their subsequent wanderings. His first book, "The Orchard Keeper," had won the 1966 William Faulkner Foundation for notable first novel and McCarthy is currently considered by critic Harold Bloom as one of the four greatest American novel writers working today. "There is not a page of this novel which does not depict swift and significant action. Nor does Mr. McCarthy waste a single word on his character's thoughts. With total objectivity he describes what they do and records their speech. Such discipline comes not only from mastery over words but from an understanding wise enough and compassionate enough to dare tell so abysmally dark a story." (Contemporary New York Times review).

        The American Cinema (First Edition)

      E.P. Dutton, New York 1968 - First Edition, one of 1500 copies printed. "The American Cinema" introduced auteur theory to America when it was published in 1968, and sparked a long and famous debate between Sarris and Pauline Kael. Auteur theory sees a film director (rather than the producer, studio, screenwriters, or actors) as the author of a film, and was one of the founding principles used by the directors in the French New Wave (Truffaut, Godard, Chabrol, Rohmer, et al). Using the new thinking in this book, Sarris re-evaluated the pantheon of important American directors who had made films between 1929 and 1968. Fine in an about Fine dust jacket. A touch of offsetting to the front endpapers, owner initials on the front endpaper, and only the most minute wear to the jacket. Extremely uncommon in this condition.

Their 17 year old daughter has run away and they want Archer to find her without involving the police. Archer soon learns that the girl is traveling in the company of a 19 year old delinquent named Davy Spanner.

Indiana has also drawn round his hand on the colophon page and inscribed "For, Elin, too, for, the sea, the sun, a season on her island, love, B In, 12 VIII 69". Indiana first visited Vinalhaven in 1969, a small island off the coast of Maine, North America. He rented a studio in a lodge each summer from his friend and photographer, Eliot Elisofon. When Eliot died in 1973, he bought the lodge from his estate for $10,000 and in 1978 moved to Vinalhaven permanently. Elin is the daughter of Eliot and was born in 1952. Published to coincide with an exhibition organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art of the University of Pennsylvania, April 17 - May 27, 1968; Marion Kooglar McNay Art Institute, San Antonio, Texas, July 1 - August 15; Herron Museum of Art, Indianapolis, September 1 - 29.

        La Campagne Electorale Commence / Notre Lutte Continue

      [Paris: May, 1968]. Unique, hand-lettered poster calling on workers to boycott the 1968 General Elections, which the artist characterizes as a Gaullist plot to "Shatter the May Workers' Movement". The poster goes on to say, "...the factory workers are not fooled by the crumbs thrown them by the bosses, nor by the masquerade of the elections...the workers have experienced Democracy [...] free speech in the factory [...] they know that it's possible to create a national list of demands, they know that it's possible to unite under this list the entire population [...] the Electoral battle is not the people's struggle, it's the bourgeoisie's attempt to suffocate the voice of the people in the voting booth!" Unattributed to a specific hand, but signed at base "Mouvement de Soutien des Luttes du Peuple" [Movement in Support of the People's Struggle], a short-lived offshoot of the Marxist student organization Union des Jeunesses Communistes Marxistes-Léninistes, organized in May, 1968 by the leftist intellectual, philosopher and novelist Guy Lardreau. A remarkable survival. Original hand-lettered poster, ca 39" x 27". Lettered in red and black on white paper. Removed from a wall, with layers of paper and wheatpaste adhered to verso; overall wrinkling, a few closed tears, but overall in a remarkable state of preservation, with no losses or major flaws. Archivally hinged to acid-free backing, in gallery frame.
