        The Wombles

      Ernest Benn Limited, London 1968 - Beautifully well preserved copy of this extremely scarce first edition of the children's book that possibly started the drive towards recycling! Signed to the recipient who was a children's librarian, ".Best wishes from Elisabeth Beresford and the Wombles." I think she may have been joking but who can tell?! This dedication is signed on a simple piece of notepaper which has been stuck on to the front free end paper. The glue shows through a little to the top side of the note paper. The dust jacket is just a tad edge worn and chipped with a tiny bit of loss at the foot of the spine at the back hinge. Signed copies of Wombles books, especially the first in the series, are very scarce indeed. Details of provenance on request. Photos available on request.

        The Penguin. (John Lennon in His Own Write. A Spaniard in the Works).

      (Harmondsworth), Penguin Books, (1968). Original wrappers. 160 p. Illustrated by John Lennon. Reprint. Spine and upper cover partly discolored. Upper cover partly detached.l With an original signed drawing by John Lennon and the signature of Yoko Ono, on a card stapled onto the halftitle. It shows the well-known caricature of a bespectacled Lennon and smiling Ono.Drawing and signatures were obtained on March 28, 1969 by eleven-year-old Lorenzo Ledel, who accompanied his mother, Dutch journalist Emmy Ledel-Huf (1922-1992), to her interview with John Lennon and Yoko Ono during their legendary Bed-In for Peace in the Presidential Suite at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel. Ledel-Huf's extensive interview was published in the local newspaper Het Parool (original newspaper clipping inserted in the book). The young Ledel, sitting on the edge of the bed of the world famous artists, obtained a total of ten signed cards. Shortly after, he sold these to his classmates for one guilder each. This is the last surviving card and the only card with a drawing. The large original drawing that Lennon gave to the boy on the same occasion has been lost over time... A very appealing relic, reminiscent of a great happening.

        [Archive]: Vietnam Letters

      New York, Germany, Vietnam, 1968. Very Good. A collection of 27 letters to Joann Mosby from two different men serving overseas during the Vietnam War. The letters are near fine with very good or better envelopes with tears from opening.A small archive of letters sent to Joann Mosby from two men serving during the Vietnam War, PFC Larry Powell and PFC Andrew Johnson. The first group of letters from Lowell are written while he's stationed in Germany with Co. A 97th Signal Battalion as a telephone installer which he says "I sure don't know what they sent me over here for they need a telephone installer like another hole in the head. I have it pretty easy right now." He later said they changed his post to a switchboard operator while he says "isn't that a laugh." Lowell often writes about finding Europe boring and asking for transfers. "I'm thinking about putting in for a transfer. I'll get sent to Vietnam if I do. It can't get any worse than Europe. This place just isn't what's happening!" Although Larry and Joann never met he does sign all his letters "love ya" and some pages include drawings of hearts. In late 1966 Larry was promoted to Sergeant and his letters bear the new title in his address. He is shipped to Vietnam "Nom" in early 1967. In a letter before leaving Europe he writes to Joann saying she probably won't want to talk to him anymore because he'll probably be "shipped home in a pine box." Although he says this he continues to write to Joann from Vietnam. He writes "I am in Nam now. I am at Bien Hoe about 22 miles from Saigon." He continues, "there is a big battle going on about forty miles from here. Operation Eden Junction or something like that." Later he says he'll "be in Vietnam about 363 days altogether." In his last letter he tells Joann "the VC haven't been giving us any rest lately." Joann also received letters from PFC Andrew Johnson, who often signs his letters as "Andy," who was stationed "about 30 northwest of Saigon the name of the town is Chi Chi." In his early letters he write about jungle training which he writes "is to show us how the Viet Cong go about killing us, etc." He says of the Viet Cong, "when you hear about all these tricks you get pretty afraid. Because they are getting smarter every day." In one letter Johnson writes, "Vietnam is far from paradise...[it] is a very hot country. Today it was 110 and will soon be 130." Johnson tells Joann about girls he's interested in, seeing a Bob Hope USO show, and adjusting to life in Vietnam. He's wary about having to go to the "Iron Triangle" region as many people he works with have been sent there. "There is a good chance of me going to the "Iron Triangle" or the "Ho Bo Woods." The Ho Bo Woods is just as dangerous as the Iron Triangle. But if I go there I will feel safe because all of you back there are hoping that I make it home safe." Towards the end of his letters Johnson discusses Operation Junction City, which he was involved in. It was an "82-day military operation" and one of the largest airborne operations of the war.A modest but interesting collection of letters showing a variety of soldier perspectives during the Vietnam War.

        Parachute to Paradise (Original screenplay for the unreleased 1969 film)

      New York: American Broadcasting Company [ABC], 1968. Revised draft script for the unreleased 1969 film, "Parachute to Paradise," with a single notation on the title page. Written for screen by Allan Gittler, the New York-based minimalist designer of electric guitars, and a virtuoso musician, who later changed his name to Avraham Bar Rashi. Gittler was a film editor in New York during the 1960s and 1970s, patented a photographic printer for motion pictures, wrote a novel called "The Rose-Colored View," and made an 18-minute short film called "New York, New York, New York," comprised of 700 photo stills, and a score that he and jazzman Elvin Jones composed. He died in 2003.Roger Davis, an actor in the film, notes that it was completed, but not shown until a broadcast on ABC in 1972. Davis: "[It was] written by the late guitar designer Allan Gittler (a.k.a. Avraham Bar Rashi,), directed by Floyd L. Petersen [sic], scored by [noted jazz arranger] Gil Evans, and also starred Natividad Abascal, Astrid Aanning, Martin J. Kelley, Bret Morrison, and the Boston garage band, The Bagatelle... was an avant-garde 'film fantasy' where Roger played the hero of a popular cigarette commercial campaign who happens to skydive. It was filmed in the summer of 1968 (beginning June 3) during Roger's short leave of absence from 'Dark Shadows'... ABC televised the movie in 1972, at the height of Roger's popularity on 'Alias Smith and Jones.' Since [the film] has gone ignored by IMDB and other web sources, here are some reflections provided by writer Gittler to 'Vintage Guitar' magazine in 2000: 'I had had enough of my career, and quit to ride my track bike through Central Park and write the script of my movie, 'Parachute to Paradise.' After the heartiness of 15 weeks of preproduction, casting the principal players and 200 extras, seven weeks of principal photography, writing the music, and seven months of editing and (doing) enormous publicity, a fallout with my producer relegated the production to a couple of cans in the laboratory vault.'"Gittler's only film credit: guitarist in "Hold for Gloria Christmas," an episode of "Naked City" (Season 4, Episode 1, 1962).Purple titled wrappers, with a credit for Gittler. Title page present, noted as "a film," with a credit for Gittler. 71 leaves, mimeograph, with white revision pages throughout, dated variously between 3/11/68 and 3/20/68. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus, bound with two gold brads.www.dfwretroplex.com/rogerdavis3.OCLC locates no institutional holdings for the script.

        The Last Roman [A Struggle for Rome] (Original screenplay for the 1968 film)

      Glendale, CA: Allied Artists, 1968. Draft script for the 1968 film. Seen here under its literal English translation "A Struggle for Rome" on the front wrapper, with credits for production company C.C.C. Film (CCC Filmkunst). Extensive notations throughout, unattributed, in various colors of holograph ink and in pencil, including substantive deletions and changes to dialogue and direction. One of Siodmak's final films, capitalizing on the popularity and success of the Italian "peplum" (sword-and-sandal) films, "The Last Roman" depicts Romans and their enemies engaged in battle. Cethegus (Harvey), leader of the Roman nobility, travels to Bizantium to convince its leader Justinian (Welles) to form an army and join forces, but with plans of betrayal in tow. The sequel, "Kampf um Rom II - Der Verrat" (Fight for Rome II), was released in 1969 in Germany, and in 1973 in the US, but never saw the success it's predecessor. Orange titled wrappers. No title page present, presumably as issued, but with the title at the top of the first page of the script. 223 leaves, mimeograph on onionskin stock, with undated yellow revision pages throughout. Pages Very Good, wrapper Very Good, internal prong binding.

        The Baur Collection. Complete set of 11 volumes.

      Baur Collection 1968-1994, Geneva - Limited/Numbered. Quarto. Hardcover. Very good. Very good: minor wear to a few dustjackets. All illustrated in colour and black and white. An extremely scarce complete set of the Baur Collection all uniformely numbered #43 of a limited edition. Volume I: With Korean and Thai Wares; Volume 2: Ming Porcelains and Other Wares; Volume 3: Monochrome-glazed Porcelains of the Ch'ing Dynasty; Volume 4: Painted and Polychrome Porcelains of the Ch'ing Dynasty; Volume 5: Chinese Jades; Volume 6: Netsuke; Volume 7: Japanese Sword-Fittings; Volume 8: Japanese Ceramics; Volume 9: Japanese Lacquer; Volume 10: Japanese Prints Part 1; Volume 11: Japanese Prints Part 2. Alfred Baur (1865 - 1951) was born in 1865 in Andelfingen (Zurich). He studied in Winterthur and then joined an important international trading company as an apprentice. Shortly after, he was transferred to the East and was sent to Ceylan. Alfred Baur was no man to be deterred by obstacles and thanks to his tenacity and flair for business he succeeded in establishing a flourishing concern in Colombo. Of an inquisitive nature, Alfred Baur, then in the prime of life, began to travel extensively. It was in the course of these travels that he realized he had the heart of a collector. A passion for Japanese art prevailed in France, Great Britain and Germany. In addition, Qing porcelains had become highly prized by enthusiastic amateurs ever since the end of the 19th Century (Grandidier in France and Salting in Great Britain). Hobson brought out the important catalogue on the Eumorfopoulos Collection in 1926 and that on the Sir Percival David Collection in 1934. Alfred Baur, in his turn, was to assemble a collection of Chinese porcelains, jades, and Japanese art treasures that is recognized today as one of the most important collections of its kind in Europe. By the end of World War I, he already owned an important collection of art treasures. It was then that he first came across Kumasuku Tomita, a Japanese dealer, expert, and collector and a man of remarkable talents; the two men were to meet again three years later when Alfred Baur visited Japan in 1924. From then onwards, the two researchers, working as a team, slowly and patiently built up the collection that began in a small way some twenty years previously. It was during one of K. Tomita's visit to Geneva that Alfred Baur decided to begin his collection of Chinese ceramics. He showed a preference for "small quantities of rare works of art rather than large numbers of articles of inferior quality". Immediately on his return to Japan, K. Tomita who had, for many years past, been in close touch with all the leading European collectors and experts began his search in Japan, China and Korea on behalf of Alfred Baur. This extremely close collaboration, which was to be interrupted by the outbreak of hostilities was resumed shortly after the end of the war and lasted until the death of Alfred Baur, a tireless, enthusiastic and yet a cautions art collector. One of the most important reference works printed in the second half of the 20th century. It is extremely rare to find a complete set uniformely numbered and in such good condition. All dustwarppers have protective archival Mylay covers. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hairy Who Exhibition Poster for the Hyde Park Art Center

      Chicago: Hyde Park Art Center, 1968. Close to fine, not mail circulated.. First Edition. Poster, offset lithograph on light blue paper, measures 21 1/4 X 16 1/2 inches. Exhibition poster announcing a show of work by members of the Hairy Who at the Hyde Art Center, Chicago, from April 5 through May 11, 1968. Lightly SIGNED by Art Green in pencil to verso. The exhibition, the group's third at the Hyde Art Center, would then travel to the San Francisco Art Institute (confusingly, a poster advertising the the San Francisco exhibit, also by Jim Nutt, mentions the show opening on May 5th!). The poster was designed to be folded in fourths, and then mailed. Unusually, this example is not folded, but instead lays flat, and shows the mailing stamps with postage permit and return address both stamped to verso.
