Paris fu dominata da una personale interpretazione dell'espressionismo astratto, per poi volgersi a una ricerca sull'espressività dei materiali in opere al limite tra la figurazione e l'astrazione. Nel 1963 è chiamato ad insegnare all'Università di Berkeley. Prime personali nel 1965 e 1967 alla Hensen Gallery di San Francisco. Nel 1969 ha luogo la sua prima personale in Europa allo Studio Marconi di Milano.

        [Broadside]: Chicago Aug. 68 A Closed Convention in a Closed City S.D.S

      [Student for a Democratic Society]. 1968. Broadside measuring 15.5" x 25" tipped in on 16.75" x 25.75" art board. Moderate chips and tears to the margins with two long creases affecting the broadside and some dampstaining, very good. A poster for the notorious 1968 Democratic Convention designed by A. J. Epstein for the progressive Sixties organization, Students for a Democratic Society, depicting the Sear Tower and Mayor Daly looming above protesters and National Guard soldiers. The student group founded in 1959 with origins in the student branch of the League for Industrial Democracy was headed by Tom Hayden who had organized a series of marches in major cities and universities across the county. The group became increasingly militant, eventually splintering into several organizations, most notorious of them the terrorist group, the Weather Underground, before disbanding in the early 1970s. This poster was made for the convention and handed out to protesters but few survived the ensuing citywide rioting, culminating with the circus-like trial of the Chicago Eight of which Hayden was one. OCLC locates only two copies: one in the Terry Southern Collection at The New York Public Library and another found at the Chicago History Museum. Rare. .

        The Gospel Singer

      NY: Morrow. 1968. His first novel, which had a first printing of only 4000 copies. Crews resuscitated the Southern gothic tradition in the late 1960s and 1970s, picking up the mantle from such writers as Flannery O'Connor and, earlier, William Faulkner. His string of novels that includes Karate is a Thing of the Spirit, Car, Naked in Garden Hills, This Thing Don't Lead to Heaven, The Gypsy's Curse, and others defined a sensibility at once rough-edged, sad, and hilarious -- steeped in the comic and grotesque tradition that had permeated southern fiction and had given it its distinctive flavor. Signed by the author in 1969 at Bread Loaf Writer's Conference. Fading to pastedowns, as is typical for this title; small label partially removed from front flyleaf; near fine in a fine dust jacket. A nice copy of the first book by one of the unique voices in American fiction. First Edition. Hardcover.

        The Ercoupe: A Touch of Class

      This book is almost as interesting as the life of the author.  The ERCO Ercoupe is a low-wing monoplane aircraft that was designed and built in the United States. It was first manufactured by the Engineering and Research Corporation (ERCO) shortly before World War II; several other manufacturers continued its production after the war. The final model, the Mooney M-10, first flew in 1968 and the last model year was 1970. It was designed to be the safest fixed-wing aircraft that aerospace engineering could provide at the time, and the type continues to enjoy a faithful following.The book was signed by Saletri just 4 months before his murder.This book traces the history of Ercoupe from its beginnings in 1931 up until its final model in 1970.  Salteri includes many photographs, maps and line drawings.  Included are letters from pilots, engineers, movie stars, models and average joes. This book is the definitive collection of information on the Ercoupe, Limited printing run of 1000 copies. 487 pages  and since the author's death there will be no more.This particular copy came from Salteri's personal library as can be barely seen in the photos of his personal embossing mark and later dedicated to his friends. It includes a dedication from Fred Weick, the aviation pioneer as can be seen in the photo.This copy is in like new condition.  Binding is tight, corners unbumped, pages still bright and the cover is unscuffed.   I can't leave this without including a short biography/obituary of Frank Salteri.Frank Saletri, a criminal lawyer who was killed in his Hollywood Hills home in 1982, would have celebrated his 58th birthday this week.Saletri's sister, June Kirk, has not stopped thinking about the murder, which remains unsolved. "The death of my brother is always on my mind, always," she said.Cauliflower president Mike Mazurki remembered Saletri as a fan of boxing and wrestling, and as one who "loved publicity." Whenever a celebrity came to a club gathering and pictures were taken, he said, "He would get in there."The commander of the Legion's Midtowne post, John J. Lange, remembered the slain attorney as "a man who would give you the shirt off his back. He would give legal opinions and not charge." Saletri had been elected commander of the post just a few days before he was killed.Kirk said Saletri had called her a few weeks before his death. "He did not indicate to me any problems, or that he was in fear for his life," she said.Later, she said, she found out he had ordered the locks changed at his house not long before his murder, and "he had taken out a large insurance policy, leaving his estate as the beneficiary." No will was found, however, she said.Kirk resisted playing detective, she said, because she suspected the murderer was someone "close to him" and feared asking questions of the wrong person. Saletri had guns in his house, knew karate and had three very protective dogs, so she assumed, she said, "it would have to be someone that he felt comfortable with, or the animals felt comfortable around."Even at my brother's funeral, I often wondered if that person was even there."Kirk put her efforts instead into saving up the reward money and keeping in touch with Hollywood detectives about their investigation, which is catalogued in a file that is now three inches thick. She asked anyone with information to call the Hollywood Division."It's worth a shot," Diaz said of Kirk's reward. "Anything we might get is better than what we've got now."So this birthday week, Kirk came to Los Angeles from her home in Chandler, Ariz., to offer a $10,000 reward for information leading to Saletri's killer or killers."I can't let go," the tall, dark-haired woman said in an interview at a Los Angeles motel. It had taken Kirk, who owns a crop-dusting business with her husband, almost 3 1/2 years to raise the $10,000."What better way to spend it?" asked Kirk, 52. "I want to know, possibly, hopefully in my lifetime, the who and the why."Saletri was found shot in the head in his white stucco Primrose Avenue home in July, 1982."We don't think the motive was robbery," said Los Angeles police Detective Tony Diaz of the Hollywood Division, because expensive jewelry, watches and other items of value were left untouched.There were no signs of forced entry, Diaz said. "It is possible he may have known the assailant."But Diaz doesn't know. "It's still an open, unsolved murder," he said. "It's a case where we didn't get any breaks. Nobody saw it. We didn't get any witnesses. Nobody heard a gun."I don't have anything to indicate he was involved in any drugs or gambling, anything like that. He had a lot of friends. Everybody liked him. Nobody hated him."Saletri, who was not well-known among other local criminal attorneys, had defended a variety of clients, including a 48-year-old stripper who had once performed a well-publicized, one-block "streak" in Hollywood. He appeared to work out of his home, Diaz said.He was also a part-time producer, director and writer, and was involved in half a dozen films, most of them spoofs of well-known horror stories. The best-known was the 1972 film "Blacula," about a black vampire.People who knew him described Saletri as a tall, broad-chested, handsome man with a mustache who fancied himself something of a ladies' man. He was divorced, with no children.He liked to fly single-engine airplanes, was active in the American Legion's Midtowne post and belonged to the Cauliflower Alley Club, a Hollywood social club whose members are predominantly boxers, wrestlers or performers who have played roles as fighters (Sylvester Stallone is a member).His sister is offering a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the apprehension of his murderer.

Small bump at the tail of the spine, dust jacket clipped and a little crumpled head and tail of the spine, but otherwise a very good copy. First Edition.

A cult classic American popular music autobiography, wherein Otis relates his integration as a Greek-American musician into the Watts Negro community of the 1930's and 40's, as well as his adventurous life beyond that time.

In the 1950's, he wrote "Willie and the Hand Jive" and "Every Beat of My Heart." His son is the multi-talented Shuggie Otis, a cult figure in American soul and pop music, who is best known for writing the 1970's hit, "Strawberry Letter 23." Otis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. A rare book, chronicling an extraordinary life in jazz, blues and rhythm and blues. An excellent copy of an extremely scarce title.

Harness. (#106922). First edition. Brief signed inscription by Harness to one of his editors. "A fine space opera ..." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-495. "His first two novels, FLIGHT INTO YESTERDAY (1953) and THE RING OF RITORNEL (1968), feature cycles in time and Heroes who undergo transcendental metamorphoses in order to manipulate their own destinies and that of the human race; both novels are shamelessly melodramatic, and have an obvious kinship with the work of A E van Vogt." - SFE (online). "This 'comeback' novel (its author's first book in fifteen years) is a rather old-fashioned but none the less impressive galactic empire story -- complexly plotted, with Harness's characteristic time themes thrown in." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), pp. 305-6.

        Oh, What a Lovely War, Screenplay from the original stageplay.

      Accord Productions Ltd., 1968. - Folio. 1st and only edition. Large format, foolscap, wrappers. Wrappers a little creased and with two old staple marks. Loosely inserted are two signed typed letters and one signed autograph letter from Len Deighton to Liz and Derek Jewell. Jewell [1927 - 1985] was a writer, broadcaster, critic and publishing director of Time Newspapers. Deighton was a friend and they socialised regularly. The autograph letter relates to an advert that Deighton was proposing to write for American Express. The script is, in my experience, the rarest item in Deighton's canon. He asked for his name to be removed from the final screen credits for Richard Attenborough's film, a decision he later described as childish. I also have a number of inscribed books from Deighton to Liz and Derek Jewell - please enquire. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Berliner Goldschmiede. Daten-Werke-Zeichen.

      Hessling Berlin 1968. 647 Seiten, im Anhang schwarz-weiße Tafeln mit 137 Abbildungen, Goldpräge-Rückenschild, Inhaltsverzeichnis, Namenregister, Register der Meister und Firmenzeichen, Schutzumschlag, Großformat-4° Dieses Werk von Dr. Wolfgang Scheffler, ehemals Oberkustos am Kunstgewerbemuseum Berlin, über die Berliner Goldschmiede darf den Anspruch erheben, die erschöpfende Arbeit über die Goldschmiede Berlins zu sein und zu bleiben. Es ist als Ergänzung und Erweiterung der Meisterlisten bei Sarre und Rosenberg gedacht. Friedrich Sarre, der vor über 70 Jahren (1895) sein grundlegendes Buch über die Berliner Goldschmiedezunft publiziert hat, behandelt nun den Zeitraum bis 1800. Das Standardwerk von Marc Rosenberg, Der Goldschmiede Merkzeichen, 2. Auflage (1923), behandelt nur auf 14 Seiten die Berliner Goldschmiede. Wolfgang Scheffler ergänzt nicht nur diese beiden Werke, sondern er führt die Reihe der Berliner Goldschmiede über das Jahr 1800 bis zur Mitte des vorigen Jahrhunderts fort. Die zahlreichen Berliner Silberarbeiten, die seit dem Erscheinen dieser genannten Bücher im Kunsthandel auftauchen, werden berücksichtigt. Umfangreiche einschlägige Archivalien wurden ausfindig gemacht und ausgewertet. Durch die weitgehende Berücksichtigung der Kirchenbücher - und Bürgerbücher-Eintragungen erhält das Buch zugleich eine familienkundliche Note, die für Berlin deshalb historisch interessant ist, da sich oft durch Generationen hindurch das kunstwerkliche Talent und Handwer vererbt hat. Außer Gold- und Silberarbeiten, Juwelieren, Edelsteinfassern sind auch verwandte Berufszweige herangezogen worden, Steinschneider, Graveure, Ciseleure, Petschierstecher, Medailleure, auch Bernstein- und Perlmuttarbeiten. Als Gegengewicht gegen die Überfülle von Daten und Listen der Werke ist der Abbildungsteil gedacht, der den Stilablauf in einem großen Überblick von den bekannten Hofgoldschmieden des 18. Jahrhunderts über die Leistungen des strengen Klassizismus und der Formenanmut der Schinkelzeit bis hin zum behäbig-bürgerlichen Charakter der Biedermeier sichtbar werden soll. Diese kenntnisreiche, in ihrer übersichtlichen Anordnung vorbildlicher Arbeit des Verfassers wird wohl jedem Benutzer, sei es aus den Kreisen der Museen, Archive, Sammler, Kunsthändler oder Liebhaber, als das Nachschlagewerk über die Berliner Goldschmiede von großen Nutzen sein. Leinenband.

        THE COLD SPRING & OTHER POEMS

      [Norfolk]: New Directions, 1968.. Paper over boards, printed spine label. Fine in dust jacket. First edition. From a total edition of one hundred press numbered copies printed by Carolyn Hammer in Emerson type on Shogun paper and signed by the author, this is one of an unknown number of copies with the variant setting of the title-page and the limitation page (with one very minor difference) which Wilson denotes as the "deluxe edition," but with endsheets and binding identical to that appearing on the ordinary copies. This is copy #14 and bears the ownership signature of poet/printer/publisher Walter Hamady. All of the copies we have previously had with these variant settings have been numbered ten or lower. As the publisher asserted that there was no "deluxe edition," it would seem likely that the variations are a consequence only of stop-press alterations by the printer and were not intended as a mark of distinction between "editions."

A large elaborate signature in green marker on top of a layer of swirling circles that Mr. Wolfe colored different colors with crayon, one in yellow, one in blue and another in yellow. I provided Mr. Wolfe with this copy and advised that it had crossed out initials that did not belong to me. He in turn colored over it and created a flying bird in blue and yellow. Truly, a one of a kind gentleman. This copy has the now famous DJ cover art by Milton Glaser. There is no blind stamp or indentation on rear. Topstain is a bluish green. Unlike the orange endpapers on the 1st printing, the endpapers here are white. Uncut edges on page-deck (side). Book has white panels with red and blue letters/FSG design to baclstrip. White panels show foxing. 2 corners are bumped. Book is tight. DJ shows edge wear and a very small stain at foot of dj on backstrip area. it is faint and small, just a little bit bigger than the size of a pencil's eraser. Aside from both DJ and Book showing flaws, this is still a tight desirable copy with a grandiose signature by tom wolfe alongside his swirling colored circles and bird drawing.

        3 ms. Briefe mit eigenh. U.

      Locarno-Monti, 1966-1968. - Zusammen 3 SS. 4to. An Gerhard Bormann, Oberstaatsanwalt i. R., den er u. a. um Rat in Fragen eines Fernsehspiels (wohl "Die Begnadigung", 1968) ersucht: "Wie Sie aus jener Zeitungsnotiz erfahren haben, handelt es sich grundsätzlich um den Fall Halsmann - doch hat Halsmann sich inzwischen nach mehreren Jahrzehnten zum erstenmal wieder an mich gewandt mit der verzweifelten Bitte, ihn gegen eine Identifikation mit dem Protagonisten unseres Fernsehspiels zu schützen, es würde sonst für ihn und seine jetzigen Lebensumstände katastrophale Folgen haben. Ich habe dementsprechend alles ihn persönlich Betreffende verfremdet - hinlänglich verfremdet, hoffe ich - bei voller Beibehaltung der Tatbestände - hoffend, daß es nur mehr ganz wenige Menschen gibt, die sich an diesen Fall tatsächlich erinnern. Außerdem habe ich [.] das 'Krimi-Element' nach Möglichkeit in den Hintergrund gerückt und die politischen Implikationen in den Vordergrund gezogen, da wir nicht einen Kriminalprozeß zeigen wollen [.]" (7. II. 1967). - Der jüdische Zahnarztsohn Philippe Halsmann war 1928 in zwei spektakulären Indizienprozessen des Mordes an seinen Vater schuldig gesprochen, zwei Jahre später allerdings begnadigt worden. Anschließend nach Paris ziehend und ein Photostudio eröffnend, wurde Halsmann als Prominentenphotograph in den USA (wohin er 1940 vor den Nationalsozialisten geflohen war) berühmt. Der deutsche Journalist Martin Pollack recherchierte knapp ein dreiviertel Jahrhundert später akribisch die verworrenen Umstände von Todesfall und Prozeß, mußte aber die Frage, ob Philippe Halsmann - der zeitlebens kein Wort über den Prozeß verlor - wirklich der Täter war, gleichfalls unbeantwortet lassen. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. bzw. ms. Briefkopf.
