[slight rub to one signature] "Michener was elected to the House of Commons in 1957, where-after he served as speaker of the house until 1962, and then in diplomatic postings between 1964 and 1967. He was that year appointed as governor general by Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, on the recommendation of Prime Minister of Canada, Lester B. Pearson, to replace Georges Vanier as viceroy, and he occupied the post until succeeded by Jules Léger in 1974. Michener proved to be a populist governor general whose tenure is considered to be a key turning point in the history of his office. On October 15, 1962, Michener was sworn into the Queen's Privy Council for Canada,[2] giving him the accordant style of The Honourable; however, as a former governor general of Canada, Michener was entitled to be styled for life with the superior form of The Right Honourable. He subsequently served on various corporate and charitable boards and sat as Chancellor of Queen's University before he died on August 6, 1991" - Wikipedia [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Noone House, Peterborough, New Hampshire 1968 - Tudor, Tasha. ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWING by Tasha Tudor that was used for the endpapers in BRITE AND FAIR written by Henry A. Shute and illustrated by Tasha Tudor. Peterborough, New Hampshire: Noone House, 1968. The image measures 13-3/4" wide x 9 " tall on Bainbridge Board measuring 13-3/4" x 9-5/8". This double page drawing is richly detailed and depicts a bucolic setting with large trees, two boys fishing from a row boat on a winding river, fenced fields and a small town with a church at its center. Tasha Tudor excelled at depicting life in an idealized time and place and this drawing is a well executed, wonderful example of the best of her work. The Bainbridge Board has what appears to be a light crease running from top to bottom approximately 2-1/4" from the right edge of the drawing but it does not detract from the loveliness of the work. Sold with a first edition copy of the book.

Size of binding: 12 5/8” x 17 6/8”, printed foreword + limitation page, followed by half-title; pp. [1]-[36] (including editor’s note & titlepage), list of plates, colophon pages & copyright page. Illustrated with 30 high-quality reproductions of various types of artwork by Marcel Marceau: 20 in-text illustrations (4 are lithographs, and 16 are ink drawings), and 10 separate illustrations on d' Arches paper (6 of these are double sheets; 4 are watercolors and 6 are pencil/charcoal drawings). In an imaginative and finely realized design bookbinding by Swiss-born, American design bookbinder, Silvia Rennie, with a specially constructed drop-back box with a hidden drawer/pull-out tray to store the interactive plates that came with this book. The front cover is bound in fine grain, white morocco leather and the back cover in a fuller grain, black morocco leather, with the spine and sides covered in fine grain red morocco leather, cut in a scalloped pattern and applied to the sides of the covers, with titling in black and white lettering, with the title & author' s name wrapping around the red leather sides. Silvia Rennie has done her interpretation of the two Marceau illustrations of his famous character Bip (the face of Bip, facing the titlepage & the back of Bip’s head, at the end of the text); these are treated as free-form cut-out leather onlays, the face of Bip in black & red (for the flower), and white and red on black for the back of his head on the back cover. Sewn, black & red double headbands, with the top-edge of the book stained in parallel lines of red & black. The sturdily-constructed drop-back box measures: 13 ½” x 18 ½”, and is covered in a textured, gray canvas-type cloth with an abstract form, red-brown leather spine label lettered with the title in black & white. When the box is opened it reveals the pull-out tray which is built into a specially made platform, which also supports the book; the inner surfaces of the box are lined in a thick, fine red suede leather to protect the binding. The book, loose plates and box are in fine condition, and represent a fine example of Silvia Rennie’s work on a large format (folio) and fairly scarce book. This copy is one of the few out-of series copies over the 230 printed on velin d’Arches paper (of an edition of 378 + 50 special copies). A first edition of one of the famous mime’s other types of artistic efforts. The separate illustrations can be fitted into the running text and illustrations of the poem, and these separate illustrations are different from the in-text illustrations: “Nous avons mis a la disposition de Marcel Marceau notre technique du livre avec la volonte de le liberer des contraintes. Un livre ne devrait pas etre immuable. Le lecteur devrait pouvoir y acceder et orchestrer l' illustration a sa convenance. Telle que vous la recevez, la disposition de cet ouvrage n' est qu' une proposition. Vous pouvez vous-meme en promener les images tout au long du texte. Elles ne sont pas foliotees. Vous en trouverez simplement la Table a la fin du livre.” (From the Publisher’s Note, p. [3]). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Beverly Hills: The Bruce Campbell and Dalton Trumbo Company, [nd. but ca 1968].. [1],v,136 leaves plus lettered inserts. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only of white, yellow and salmon stock. Bradbound. Chip from blank fore-edge of terminal leaf, not affecting text, otherwise very good or better. An unidentified, undated, but revised pre- production draft of Dalton Trumbo's own screenplay adaptation of his novel. A multitude of revises on various colored papers, as well as lettered inserted half- pages, suggests the script was still in flux, and a section preceding the opening of the script includes a brief history of the novel, and quotes international comments about it, clearly in an effort to generate studio interest in the project. We've handled two other drafts of this screenplay, both denoted "final" (but also with revises and similar collations), both dating from the first quarter of 1968. Trumbo also directed the 1971 release, starring Timothy Bottoms, Jason Robards, Donald Sutherland, and Donald Barry. Trumbo won two awards at Cannes for his work on this film.

Includes: Coming to Our Senses Again (1991, inscribed); Cleveland Gate Illumination (1960, with poems at verso by Kent Taylor); Winter Light (1991, with one small hand correction); and the following stapled together at the top corner: Blood (undated, inscribed, and with a name, address, and markings in wax pencil and colored marker to verso); So It Turns Out That We Were Dreaming (1990, briefly inscribed but unsigned); The Little Room (1991); Poets Under Oath (1991); and Tasting the Dirt (inscribed and dated 1991). Condition: Some creases, folds, and edgewear; "Cleveland Gate" chipped at corners and toned at edges; very good to better than very good.

Included are 2 copies of Freethough, a free poetry tabloid with a poem by Wagner (Summer 1993, newsprint); "An Electricity of Purpose", an article on miniature tapestries by Wagner clipped from an issue of Needle Arts magazine (Sept. 1988, 5 pp. with color photographs); photocopy of "The Fulfillment of Prophecy," part of the poet's final project to receive a MFA at John F.

Kennedy. Condition: Some edgewear, some writing to verso of one page of resume; better than very good to near fine. Inscriptions to Bari Kennedy, throughout, are fairly long, artful and quite warm; this was clearly a close relationship. Wagner's resume in poetry, art, music and arts education is immense and very long-term; Kennedy's colorful history is lightly outlined under the separate listing for a notebook of his manuscript poems.

        "The Basketball Diaries" [story in] The World -- Number 11, April 1968

      New York: The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church In-The-Bowery. 1968. Magazine. Cover by Tom Clark. Folio. 42pp. Mimeographed sheets in stapled wrappers. Near fine with some uneven toning to the front wrap and a spot of toning on the rear wrap but with no oxidation to the staples and fresh white pages. Signed by contributors Ron Padgett and Gerald Malanga. This issue features "From the Basketball Diaries," a two entry prose piece from Jim Carroll that would later be incorporated into his 1978 classic memoir The Basketball Diaries. Published when Carroll was just 17, these two entries dated Feb. 4 1965 ("We just got into town for the very spectacular National High School All Star Basketball Game.") and Feb. 5, 1965 ("After very poor breakfast Joe Slapstick calls aside Corky and I and lets us know he is giving us another chance and would be starting the game anyway.") were later incorporated into the book as Winter 66 (pages 153-155). These initial installments appeared a decade before the book which has since become a cult classic and the inspiration for the 1995 film of the same name starring Leonardo DiCaprio. .

        ARE YOU REA

      Los Angeles: Robert Heinecken, 1968. First ed. Heinecken, Robert F.. Folio, 2 loose text pages, plus 25 photo-lithographic plates. Laid in heavy stock four-point folder. Fine. Heinecken is a trained printmaker who uses photography to explore the formal content as well as social aspects of the popular print medium. In this, his first printed work, he examined hundreds of fashion and popular magazines on the light-table, revealing the composite image formed from opposite or back-to-back pages. He then used these pages as negatives to directly expose a photo-lithographic plate. The resulting tonally reversed image is a montage of pictures and words that are both visually complex and a disturbing reflection of the society's values. Limited to 500 numbered and SIGNED copies.

      Farrar, Straus & Giroux, New York 1968 - First Printing. Octavo; white cloth with titles stamped in orange, magenta, blue, and green foil on the spine; navy blue topstain; 416pp. Signed by Wolfe on the half-title page in his typical, elegant hand. Fine in a very Near Fine dustjacket, unclipped and unfaded, with some pinpoint rubbing to the front cornertips, some trivial wrinkling at the crown, and a faint diagonal crease at the upper corner of the front flap. Of the dozen or so copies we have handled, this is easily the best copy we've seen, without of hint of the usual toning to the board edges or fading to the colorful dustjacket. The topstain on this title is usually found faded to any number of colors, or washed-out completely; the dark blue staining on this copy is bright and even, and most uncommon thus. The author's most enduring book, a major work of both the New Journalism and counterculture of the 1960's. A stunning copy of a title usually found worse for the wear. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
