        The Making of the President 1968

      New York: Atheneum Publishers, , 1968.. New York: Atheneum Publishers, 1968. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author to reporter Mike Wallace, "For Mike Wallace- from a companion of passage affectionately, Teddy White." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. The third book in Theodore H. White's landmark series, The Making of the President 1968 is the compelling account of the turbulent 1968 presidential campaign, the assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., and election of Richard Nixon. White made history with his groundbreaking The Making of the President 1960, a narrative that won the Pulitzer Prize for revolutionizing the way that presidential campaigns were reported. "White unites a novelist's knack of dramatization and a historian's sense of significance with a synthesizing skill that grasps the reader by the lapels" (Newsweek).

        TO HEAL AND TO BUILD: The Programs of President Lyndon B. Johnson

      New York: McGraw-Hill, 1968. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. 8vo. Cloth. Fine in near fine jacket. Jacket has touches rubbing, wear at edges. Small crease to front flap. Unclipped. INSCRIBED by Lady Bird Johnson and to Barbara and Harold Saunders: "For Barbara and Harold Saunders / with our appreciation and / warm wishes - / Lady Bird Johnson / Christmas 1968." Additionally SIGNED by President Johnson. Some smudging to LBJ's signature. Harold Saunders was a member of the National Security Council staff from 1961 through Johnson's tenure as President. He subsequently served as Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs from 1978 to 1981 and was intrumental in both the Camp David Accords as well as the Iranian hostage crisis. Johnson was something of a reluctant signer and books genuinely inscribed by him are uncommon, with many secretarial examples misidentified. A warm association.

Rackham had been asked to illustrate the first edition of the book in 1908, but was already committed to illustrating A Midsummer Night's Dream and turned Grahame down. It was a decision he regretted for much of the rest of his life, until given the opportunity to illustrate the book for the Limited Editions Club in the late 1930s. First published in 1940, his illustrations for this children's classic would be his last, and one of his most loved, sets of illustrations.

      New York City: Nixon-Agnew Campaign Committee, 1968. New York City: Nixon-Agnew Campaign Committee, 1968. SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY FROM RICHARD NIXON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, TO CHARLES "CHUCK" COLSON, NIXON'S "HATCHET MAN" AND ONE OF THE JAILED WATERGATE SEVEN. Nixon's has signed his name on an official Presidential label with the following printed inscription: "To Chuck Colson with best wishes" below which Nixon has signed his name in clear and neat ink hand. 194 pages. Olive green stiffened card covers with white lettering to the front and the spine. Some light rubbing to edges of the spine and a few light creases. A near-Fine copy with a unique and fascinating Watergate association. This book is a composite of the positions taken on public questions by Richard Nixon during the Presidential campaign in 1968. Chuck Colson (1931-2012) was a Special Counsel to Nixon from 1969 to 1973, and later a noted Evangelical Christian leader. He gained notoriety at the height of the WATERGATE scandal, for being named as one of the Watergate Seven, and pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice for attempting to defame Pentagon Papers defendant Daniel Ellsberg. In 1974, he served seven months in jail as the first member of the Nixon administration to be incarcerated for Watergate-related charges. In 1968, Colson served as counsel to Republican presidential candidate Richard Nixon's Key Issues Committee, and a year later was appointed as Special Counsel to President Nixon. Colson was responsible for inviting influential private special interest groups into the White House policy-making process and winning their support on certain issues. His office served as the President's political communications liaison with organized labor, veterans, farmers, conservationists, industrial organizations, citizen groups, and almost any organized lobbying group whose objectives were compatible with the administration's. Colson also became involved in the Committee to Re-elect the President. At a CRP meeting on March 21, 1971, it was agreed to spend US$250,000 on "intelligence gathering" on the Democratic Party. Colson and John Ehrlichman appointed E. Howard Hunt to the White House Special Operations Unit (the so-called "Plumbers"), which had been organized to stop leaks in the Nixon administration. In 1971 Hunt teamed up with Gordon Liddy and the two headed the attempted burglary of the office of Pentagon Papers-leaker Daniel Ellsberg in Los Angeles in September 1971. The Pentagon Papers were a cache of military documents comprising an exhaustive study of the United States involvement in the Vietnam War. Their publication helped increase opposition to the war. Colson hoped that revelations about Ellsberg could be used to discredit the anti-Vietnam War cause. Colson admitted to leaking information from Ellsberg's confidential FBI file to the press, but denied organizing Hunt's burglary of Ellsberg's office. Although not discovered until several years after Nixon had resigned and Colson had finished serving his prison term, transcripts of a tape-recorded June 20, 1972 White House conversation between Nixon and Colson clearly show both men's early involvement in obstruction of justice in the Watergate investigation. On March 10, 1973, 17 months before Nixon's resignation, Colson resigned from the White House to return to the private practice of law, as Senior Partner at the law firm of Colson and Shapiro, Washington, D.C. However, he was retained as a special consultant by Nixon for several more months. On March 1, 1974, Colson was indicted for conspiring to cover up the Watergate burglaries. After taking the Fifth Amendment during early testimony, Colson found himself torn between his desire to be truthful and his desire to avoid conviction on charges of which he believed himself innocent. Following prayer and consultation with his fellowship group, Colson suggested a plea of guilty to a different criminal charge of which he did consider himself to be culpable. After days of negotiation with Watergate Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski and Watergate Trial Judge Gerhard Gesell, Colson pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice on the basis of having attempted to defame Ellsberg's character in the build-up to the trial in order to influence the jury against him. Colson was given a one-to- three-year sentence and fined $5,000. He spent seven months in Maxwell Correctional Facility in Alabama, with short stays at a facility on the Fort Holabird grounds when needed as a trial witness, entering prison on July 9, 1974 and being released early, on January 31, 1975, by the sentencing judge due to family issues. At the time that Gesell ordered his release, Colson was one of the last of the Watergate defendants still in jail: only Gordon Liddy was still incarcerated. Egil Krogh had served his sentence and been released before Colson entered jail, while John Dean, Jeb Magruder, and Herb Kalmbach had been released earlier in January 1975 by Judge John Sirica..

        Autograph Manuscript of a Speech on Flyfishing and Conservation, given to the Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, at a Dinner in the Biltmore Hotel, New York, 16 March 1968]

      [N.p.], 1968 - Autograph manuscript of a thoughtful and wide-ranging speech given by angling author and pioneering conservationist Roderick L. Haig-Brown at the annual dinner of the Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, on flyfishing and conservation and the role of flyfishing clubs in promoting conservation. "Forty years ago on the Pacific coast, I had it pretty good - forests everywhere, clean streams coming through them & out of them, lots of fish. Not too many people. I worried, but my worries were for the future. I didn't worry enough. I had no idea how fast it could all change or how badly it could be handled." Haig-Brown notes the rise of fly clubs all across north America as the most encouraging development. He warns of pollution, calls for its reducation and for cleanup of existing pollution, and adds his voice to a growing call for the end to the use of DDT "that barbarous pesticide" (its use was not banned in the U.S. until 1972). He advocates careful stream management, and concludes with a look back to the English poets John Gay and James Thompson. The vast Haig-Brown archive at the University of British Columbia records a two-page pen draft of excerpts of this speech (box 55-7), and notes for Haig-Brown's speeches are also preserved (box 55A). Because so much is preserved in the archive, very little Haig-Brown manuscript material is ever seen on the market. RARE AND INTERESTING AND EVIDENTLY UNPUBLISHED 3 x 5 inches. Blue ink on paper, on 27 3 x 5 index cards (numbered 1-13, 13A-26), 11 lines in neat block letters, occasional points of emphasis designated in red underlining, approximately 1250 words.

        Archive of Anthony Hecht Materials [Signed 10X and Initialed 5X]

      Anthony Hecht Various publication dates, New York State - A quite scarce, and rare-to-the-market Anthony Hecht Archive, with each item being in Very Good or better condition, containing many items signed by Anthony Hecht, illustrating the inner workings of book publishing and providing an interesting insight into the business side of the great Poet's life. Anthony Hecht's poetry is noted for confronting the Twentieth Century's horrors, particularly those of World War II (in which Hecht fought) and the Holocaust, both of which were recurring themes in his work. Although his parents opposed his becoming a Poet, even going so far as to have family friend Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) try to dissuade Hecht from his chosen career, Hecht, having been inspired by the works of Wallace Stevens, W. H. Auden, and T. S. Eliot, persevered, ultimately becoming one of the greatest Poets of his era and winning the 1968 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for his second collection of verse, "The Hard Hours". Hecht also won the 1983 Bollingen Prize, the 1988 Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, the 1989 Aiken Taylor Award for Modern American Poetry, the 1997 Wallace Stevens Award, the 1999/2000 Frost Medal, the Tanning Prize, and The National Medal of Arts, as well as a number of other Awards and Fellowships. From 1982 - 1984, he served as the twenty-seventh United States Poet Laureate (officially Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress), placing him in the company of America's greatest Poets such as Robert Frost, Robert Penn Warren, William Carlos Williams, Stephen Spender, and others. The "Anthony Hecht Poetry Prize" is given annually in his honor. In spite of his stellar reputation as a Poet and the recognition he received for his work, this Archive reveals that revenues from his work were not sufficient to support Hecht and his young family. In consequence, Hecht derived most of his income from teaching at the University of Rochester and Hecht's signed letters contained herein are on University Letterhead. The Archive, from the file of Hecht's Literary Agent, Joan Daves, contains four checks (in rather low amounts) made payable to Hecht and representing revenue from his literary work, one of which is endorsed by Hecht, two of which are endorsed by Hecht and his wife Helen, and the fourth of which was deposited without endorsement; five typed letters signed (by Hecht), each dated 1972 or 1973, five contracts signed by Anthony Hecht and other parties; as well as copies of relevant letters, bios, and publicity information provided by Hecht. In the letters, Hecht discusses publishing efforts and plans for "Seven Against Thebes", including plans for a special edition of the work to be produced by Leonard Baskin at Ghenna Press, the birth of his son, the provision of publicity information, and retrieving the original manuscript and the master galleys of one of his works from Oxford University Press (the publication of which had been canceled as noted below). The original signed contracts are as follows: (i) contract with Atheneum dated "9/24/70" for the translation by Hecht and Helen Bacon of Aeschylus’ "Seven Against Thebes" signed by Hecht, Bacon, and Atheneum; (ii) contract with Oxford University Press (OUP) dated October 20, 1972 signed by Hecht, Bacon, and OUP and initialed by Hecht and by Bacon at the bottom of 5 pages (all but the signature page where no initials were called for) -- stapled to which is an original letter on Atheneum letterhead from Alfred Knopf, Jr. reverting all rights granted Atheneum under the above-described 9/24/70 contract to Hecht and Bacon, signed by Alfred Knopf, Jr. and by Joan Daves, entered into so that Hecht and Bacon could enter a contract for the same work with "another publisher" (leading, of course to the foregoing OUP contract; (iii) contract with OUP dated July 17, 1973 for Oedipus At Colonus (a translation of Sophocles' work) signed by Hecht and by George Dimock as "Authors" and signed by OUP; (iv) Letter Agreement dated December 15, 1975 by and among Hecht, Dimo [Attributes: First Edition]

I worried, but my worries were for the future. I didn't worry enough. I had no idea how fast it could all change or how badly it could be handled." Haig-Brown notes the rise of fly clubs all across north America as the most encouraging development. He warns of pollution, calls for its reducation and for cleanup of existing pollution, and adds his voice to a growing call for the end to the use of DDT "that barbarous pesticide" (its use was not banned in the U.S. until 1972). He advocates careful stream management, and concludes with a look back to the English poets John Gay and James Thompson. The vast Haig-Brown archive at the University of British Columbia records a two-page pen draft of excerpts of this speech (box 55-7), and notes for Haig-Brown's speeches are also preserved (box 55A). Because so much is preserved in the archive, very little Haig-Brown manuscript material is ever seen on the market. RARE AND INTERESTING AND EVIDENTLY UNPUBLISHED

        Vánocní Betlém [Bethlehem Christmas]

      , (1968). (1968). An uncommon die-cut pop-up card depicting a nativity scene set in ancient Bethlehem, beneath palm trees and a starry night sky. Cattle, goats, sheep, and an elephant surround the manger, as the magi and others bring gifts. Presiding over the scene is an angel carrying a banner proclaiming "Gloria in Excelsis Deo." Kubasta's clever technique interlocks two brightly-colored accordion-fold illustrations to create a three-dimensional panorama. An additional two interlocking pieces with cherubs, lambs, and a Christmas tree are designed to be placed in front of the display. In a recent New York Times feature on Kubasta, paper engineer Robert Sabuda, who was inspired by Kubasta's books at an early age, described Kubasta's work as unusual in that he was able to create astonishingly complex, detailed scenes with a single sheet of paper. His pop-up books are also known for their bold, rich color and were printed in Czechoslovakia on special pre-war presses at the state-run publishing house Artia. Measures approximately six inches (15 cm) tall. Angel's wings are slightly bent, else a fine example of Kubasta's creative work.

        Five Original Watercolor and Pencil Sketches for Piaget Jewelry Designs

      Geneva, 1968. Geneva, 1968. (5)ff. A set of five designs for jewelry by the ultra-luxury jeweler and renowned Swiss watchmaker Piaget. They depict a tiara glistening with alternating diamonds and sapphires, two rings, two pins, and details of three necklaces. The intricate jewelry shows astonishing detail, especially in the examples of the two pins, a golden bear cub climbing a branch and cat whose bodies are covered with pavé rubies and sapphires. The designs share a fine design sensibility and a similar aesthetic and color palette, and it is possible that they were done as custom commissions for a client. The drawings were executed on translucent vellum-paper stamped with the jeweler's brand and hand-dated. The set is accompanied by a price list dated 1969, and housed in a presentation folder bearing the Piaget brand and coat of arms. In fine condition.

      , 1968. , 1968. Ninety-three pages of unlined quarto sized writing paper (paginated [i], 1-79, 75-79, 75-82), written on rectos only in Bates's small, closely spaced hand. Numerous deletions and emendations to virtually every page. Inscribed by Bates on the initial unpaginated leaf, "This manuscript of The Triple Echo is for Frank and Joan Rodwell, dear + well loved friends of the author, H.E.Bates", and beneath, "N.B. This story was first conceived in 1943, remained in the womb of the said author for a quarter of a century + was finally born in November 1968. Father + child doing well. H.E.Bates" Bound with the corrected typescript carbon of the same novel with occasional ink corrections in an editor's hand. Red paper wrappers, originally holding the typescript, now bound at the front of the manuscript, with orange typed label to front giving title and author and signed by Bates beneath his name. Inscribed by an editor, "follow copy for punctuation / 12/13 Bembo / 22 encs". Also with label of Bates's agent Laurence Pollinger, inscribed by Bates, "Dear Frank, This is the promised typescript to go with your ms. From HE". The whole bound in green cloth with gilt titles to the spine and upper cover. The Triple Echo, published in 1970, is the most famous of Bates's later novels, due in part to the successful film adaptation in 1972 staring Glenda Jackson, Brian Deacon and Oliver Reed. It is a moving tale of a lonely woman living on an isolated farm and her love affair with a young deserter, of their intrigues and their deceptions and the elaborate web they weave to outwit the Military Police. It was Bates's custom to supplement his income by selling his manuscripts once a novel was published. Initially this was through manuscript dealers such as Charles Lahr and then directly to enthusiasts such as Louis Sterling, whose collection at ULL contains six Bates manuscripts, the first of which, Charlotte's Row, purchased in 1931 for £75 provided the bulk of the deposit with which Bates bought the house in which he lived most of his life. Frank Rodwell met Bates and his wife, Madge whilst on holiday in Madeira in the late sixties and became friends and correspondents. Rodwell became an enthusiastic collector of Bates's work and as well as acquiring most of his published works was given a number of manuscripts by Bates, this example being of particular interest as it shows the creation process of the novel from its genesis to final publication.
