        Galley Sheets for "Presenting: The Richard Nixon Doll (Overhauled Model)"

      (n.p.): Pageant Magazine. 1968. Galley sheets for Thompson's article on the Nixon campaign, written for the July 1968 issue of Pageant Magazine. Here untitled, and dated April 10, 1968. Eventually collected in The Great Shark Hunt. We were unable to locate this issue of Pageant, but the galleys differ from the collected version in a handful of instances. Six pages, 9" x 12", printed on rectos only, with penciled notation "670 lines/at 32 chars/per line." A notable piece in Thompson's bibliography and his biography: it is the first piece he wrote on Richard Nixon, who became over the years something of a nemesis or a bete noire to Thompson. Thompson's hatred of Nixon was legendary and it created a kind of bond between the two. After Nixon's death Thompson wrote "Richard Nixon was an evil man -- evil in a way that only those who believe in the physical reality of the Devil can understand it. He was utterly without ethics or morals or any bedrock sense of decency." And yet he also wrote "It was Richard Nixon who got me into politics, and now that he's gone, I feel lonely." Folded in half once, with a gentle corner crease; near fine. Early gonzo reporting, in a rare advance state. . First Edition.

        Colonel Sun. A James Bond Adventure

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1968,, 1968. FIRST EDITION. THE AUTHOR'S COPY, in a bespoke quarter leather binding of half brown morocco, gilt, commissioned by the publisher for presentation to Amis. Obviously a unique copy, this was likely bound by Ian Fleming's own binder Arthur Last, the style matching closely the author's copies of Cape's original Bond novels now residing at the Lilly Library and researched by Gilbert while producing the forthcoming bibliography. Amis' presentation binding also features his initials tooled in gilt. A typed statement is included, noting this as being the only such copy produced for him, SIGNED in full by Amis. Owned in conjuction with Lucius Books of York. After Ian Fleming's death in 1964, [copyright holders] Glidrose decided to continue the Bond franchise with a series of well-known authors each writing a book under a pen-name. However, only Kingsley Amis took up the offer [writing as 'Robert Markham'], and in 1968 his 007 novel, 'Colonel Sun' was published. Although initial sales proved disappointing, Bond fans now consider it a classic, with a gritty, fast-paced story written in a polished style by the established Amis [effectively re-creating the famous 'Fleming sweep']. Already a part of the 'Bond Family', Amis had previously written a popular critical work on the secret agent entitled 'The James Bond Dossier' (1965), plus the light-hearted 'Book of Bond' (1965), and he was therefore an ideal candidate; at the time, rumours circulated that Amis finished 'The Man With The Golden Gun' upon Fleming's death (only the first draft of the novel had been completed) and that 'Colonel Sun' was offered as an incentive from Glidrose. Haining; Crime Fiction p206. BMC No.1 p.4-13 'James Bond Revivals'. Hubin; Crime Fiction IV. Gilbert, Jon; Ian Fleming: The Bibliography, page 602.

        de Stijl 1917-1931

      This extraordinary annotated copy was formerly owned by two of the 20th century's most influential graphic design artists, Hans Schleger and Paul Rand, both profoundly influenced by de Stijl. Reflecting how he treasured the gift from Schleger, provenance is recorded by Rand, an unusual event (on the half-title page) stating, "London Oct. 3.69 from Hans Schleger". Laid in are related ephemera, an undated British Airways Concorde boarding pass, Mr. Rand written in, believed to be from his attendance at Hans Schleger's funeral, and a notepaper sheet ca. 1968 with 17 small sketches executed by Rand, including 10 portraits, with 16 lines of handwritten notes, 2 mentioning de Stij. DE STIJL AND DESIGN: The seminal influence of the de Stijl movement on modern graphic design followed from their experiments with the dynamic equilibrium of the horizontal and vertical line and their division of the painting surface into grids. The book is an essential De Stijl reference with English translations of 2 Mondrian essays and extensive documentation. ANNOTATIONS: in Paul Rand's hand mark his engaged reading. On 71 pages are 91 sentence or phrasing underlines, 63 margin notes that repeat ideas or facts, 5 margin doodles and 4 examples of commentary and 1 correction. RAND AND SCHLEGER: both pioneers in creating a new language for graphic design, the former in the U.S., the latter, principally in Great Britain, that came to be widely adopted. Rand relates they met at the Arts Club in Dover soon after the end of WWII, "It was only a short time after we left the club that we were walking arm-in-arm along Piccadilly, destined to be friends" [Heller]. The penned note by Paul Rand in blue ink states the book was given as a gift by Hans Schleger to him on October 3, 1969 while he was in London. Schleger who was appointed Royal Designer for Industry (1959) died in 1976. Paul Rand wrote the foreword for the first comprehensive monograph on Schleger, "Zero: Hans Schleger-A Life of Design". NOTE PAPER: 1 sheet of white, lined note paper, 124 x 199 mm, notes in pencil and blue & red inks on both sides, 1 note dated (March 11, 1968), making it likely the sheet was done by Rand in Spring-1968 and laid in to the book by him at a later date, 8 short lines on each side, last 5 lines on rear with corrections and cross-outs: 2 notes for a lecture are on de Stijl; 17 very small sketches on 1 side, 16 in pen & blue ink, 1 in pencil with 10 portrait heads done in 3 series: 2 of the more finished sketches are a self-portrait and what appears to be a portrait of his future wife, Marion. There are also volumetric renderings of 2 horses, a human torso with head and the number 5. Condition: Near Good: 8 mm band of browning across top (margin), within which is a horizontal fold: top outer corner with fold-over, chip with loss, and fray: 2 small light stain-spots in inner margin. BOARDING PASS: for British Airways, their Concorde SST flight (supersonic transport), not specified, but believed from Washington, D.C. to London, BA 170 West Ramp stamped in blue ink, (heading-British Airways, Concorde Flight Boarding Pass-in English, French, German and Spanish), flight pass on serrated card, 16.6 x 7.3 cm, blue & white with gold & white letters and a die cut-out of a hanger, Mr. Paul Rand handwritten twice, in names and service information, seat 1B written twice, in seats and no smoking cabin. Condition: Good: slight ink smudge: minor wear to top edge: trace wear to bottom edge: rear with minor rubs. BOOK CONDITION DETAIL: Lacks book-jacket. 1954 with question mark in pencil at bottom of title page (believed by Paul Rand regarding publication date). Endpapers: some rubs. Pages: trace bump to bottom tip of pages 44-258: light bump to  bottom tip of pp. 259-293: clean and bright except p. 139 with bottom margin spot and pp. 166-167 with 2 spots in inner margin; rear suite of plates with light yellowing in margins, (for annotations by Rand, see above). Boards: some soiling and light edge wear. Gilt: clean and bright. Binding: slight spine slant but very good. FORMAT: Publisher's white cloth boards, spine stamped with gilt letters, sewn with plain black endpapers, plates on white glazed paper. SIZE: 24.5 x 17.4 cm or 9.65 x 6.85 inches, as issued. PAGINATION: Confirmed complete, 360 pages: viii, preliminaries, 293 pages, text including rear chapter notes and 22 pages bibliography, pp. 269-291, [3] pages, includes printing information + 4 full-page color plates, printed on one side of the sheet (after p. 48, p. 96, p. 144 and p. 192) and rear suite of 48 full-page b/w illustrations.

        For the Sake of a Single Verse . . . from the Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge

      (NY: Atelier Mourlot, 1968). Elephant folio. 56ff. From an edition of 950 copies, this is one of 200 deluxe copies with twenty-four original lithographs printed on Richard de Bas handmade paper, each signed by the artist, Ben Shahn.Loose, as issued, in wrappers and vellum-backed cloth folding case. Vellum on case is starting to lift up along the edges, else extremely fine. Includes original corrugated shipping carton.& & Representing Shahn's major artistic achievement in both scope and scale, this book seamlessly merges the visual with the poetic to produce one of the most powerful contemplations on life, death, and what feels like the whole of human experience. In executing the illustrations, Shahn builds on the poetic prose of Rilke's autobiographical novel, which he had first read in 1926. At that time, according to Prescott, Shahn was "just beginning to doubt his own traditional style of painting and was seeking more personal expressions, when he found in Rilke the same searching, probing, and slow emergence of forms characteristic of his own experience." Thus, the artist's return to this text, which was published a year before his death, may be seen as an act of completion, with the resulting work being the full expression of his original style. Prescott notes that, in the deluxe copies such as this one, the lithograph accompanying the section "to nights of travel that rushed along on high and flew with all the stars" differs from that in the regular copy in that the stars gracing Shahn's ethereal sky are made from hand-applied gold foil.& & Ben Shahn once told the New York Times, "I wouldn't have attempted to do it if I hadn't had myself every one of the experiences [Rilke] described." For Shahn, producing a book was a very special undertaking. "He put every effort into its conception and execution," observes Klemin. The twenty-four lithographs range in style, but all are unified by Shahn's ingenious interplay of shape and shadow, economy of line and color, and articulate rendering of hands and facial expressions. Shahn's choice to print the book in his own script further invests the work with a sense of personal and emotional immediacy.& & To help tell the story, Shahn shows us a lonesome figure gazing at a formless sea, a woman in labor confined to her bed, two lovers sharing an embrace, and other recognizable moments in life. At the end of the journey, Shahn redirects our attention to an image of his hand holding a pen, as if to grant a peace to all that he has just shared, and to say that all life's experiences have the ability to inspire beauty.

        The Bikeriders

      New York: Macmillan, (1968). Dated 1968 ownership signature of curator and critic Thomas H.

First Edition. Small quarto. The scarce cloth issue of Danny Lyon's first book. SIGNED by Lyon. One of the iconic American photobooks of the sixties.

[Ottawa],: Yousuf Karsh, 1968 Original matte black & white silver print on stiff board, 8" x 10 1/2" overall with embossed border & image size: 5" x 6"' 5/8 in fine condition with Karsh's stamp on the verso. A superb Karsh image with his typical strong distinctive lighting & contrasts. Signed by Karsh on the margin below the image. A Presentation Print, inscribed on the blank border: 1968 / To Charles Beasley with every good wish / Roland Michener Norah Willis Michener". [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. Signed by Author. 1st Edition.
