        Les Enfants Trouvés de Magritte

      Paris: A.C Mazo et Cie, 1968. EXTREMELY RARE LIMITED EDITION OF Surrealist master RENÉ MAGRITTE'S Les Enfants Trouvés, number 89 of only 350 issues printed on Velin d'Arches. COMPLETE WITH TWELVE BREATHTAKING LITHOGRAPHS. "The art of René Magritte has had an influence far exceeding the confines of the art world. Imagery adapted from his paintings has been widely disseminated for more than half a century through advertising, cartoons, film, book jackets, and popular music... His work has continued to appeal to modern audiences hungry for the puzzling conjunctions of the everyday and the fantastic... The inscrutable nature of Magritte's work--coded, self-referential, and incongruous--has [moreover] intrigued several generations of artists," (Stephanie Barron).The first four illustrations (numbered recto) are magnificently unique, conceived by Magritte specifically for this production. While certainly distinctive, these images--as well as the final eight--represent a summary of his favorite ideas and symbols, many taken from recent pictures: the clouds, female torsos, and birds, to name a few.Eight following illustrations were originally created by Magritte for his mural "The Enchanted Domain". An awing 360-degree eight-panel mural, the masterpiece was painted to fulfill a commission by Gustave J. Nellens, owner of the Casino Communal at Knokke-Le-Zoute in Belgium. A massive undertaking for a famously reclusive artist, Magritte commented:"When asked to devise a series of pictures for the walls of a Casino gaming room, I did not think along the lines expected of me... My intention is to offer an artistic spectacle of some significance, and convey a hitherto unknown feeling, a feeling in keeping with the attitude appropriate to a person living in the universe," (Elle, 1953).Nellens himself amassed quite a significant amount of Magritte art; his collection of paintings and lithographs is, even today, unparalleled.Accompanying poem (in French) by Louis Scutenaire, a poet, close confidant of Magritte, and central figure of the Belgian Surrealist movement.  A.C Mazo et Cie: Paris, 1968. Complete set of twelve color lithographs on Velin d'Arches, each initialed in pencil by the printer Fernand Mourlot, signed on the stone "Magritte" lower right. Oversize folio (46x62 cm). Encased in original illustrated cloth-covered folding box; loose (as issued). Numbered 89/350 on the colophon. COMPLETE PORTFOLIO AND IN FINE CONDITION: INCREDIBLY RARE. Fine.

A trade edition of this work was released in 1971.

        Please Plant This Book

      Santa Barbara and San Francisco Graham Mackintosh 1968 - First Edition and Limited edition of Brautigan's "Please Plant This Book" Poetry BRAUTIGAN, Richard. Please Plant This Book. [Santa Barbara and San Francisco: Graham Mackintosh, 1968]. First Edition. Limited edition (exact quantity is unknown, but somewhere between 1,500-5,000 copies). Small folder (7 x 6 1/4 inches; 176 x 160 mm when closed). Folder contains eight seed packets. Each seed packet has a poem by Brautigan on the front and planting instructions on the back. Four flower seed packets (California Native Flowers, Sweet Akyssum Royal Carpet, Calendula, and Shasta Daisy) and four vegetable seed packets (Carrots, Parsley, Lettuce, and Squash). This folder was to be for free distribution. Front cover of folder printed with three sepia photographs of young girl Caledonia Jahrmarkt by Bill Brach, a Haight-Ashbury photographer. Front and back lettered in brown ink. Inside, eight seed packets of various colors (orange, yellow, blue, green, and brown), each with a different poem by Brautigan printed on it. Overall fine with seed packets unopened. "First published in March 1968, Please Plant This Book, a collection of eight poems printed on eight seed packets placed in a folder, was Brautigan's fourth collection of poetry; his sixth poetry publicaton.A limited edition (exact number unknown; reports suggest 1,500-5,000 copies; Brautigan stated 5,000 in his 1968 application for a Guggenheim Fellowship) was published, all for free distribution. This was Brautigan's last independent publishing venture.Given Brautigan's interest in the presentation of his work in print it seems likely that he had some specific order in mind for the seed packets.

        No One Writes to the Colonel and Other Stories

      New York: Harper & Row, 1968. First Edition, as stated. First Edition (so stated) of the author's first book published in English translation, a novella and eight short stories. 8vo: [4],170pp. Publisher's quarter-bound brick-red cloth stamped in burgundy, mustard paper-covered boards, fore-edge untrimmed, boldly patterned end papers, illustrated dust jacket priced $5.95. Virtually pristine, an exemplary example, apparently unread, showing all first-issue points ('H-S' code on copyright page, without number line on terminal leaf), in a bright, nearly flawless first-issue jacket (Jerry Bauer credited for photograph of the author on the back panel, date code 0968 on front flap), with just mild toning to top of the back panel and a minute, nearly unnoticeable rub at the front spine-panel fold. Truly a collector's copy. "Written between 1956 and 1957 and first published in 1961, the title novella (the book also includes a second, longer novella, Big Mama's Funeral) tells the story of an impoverished, retired colonel, a veteran of the Thousand Days' War, who still hopes to receive the pension he was promised some fifteen years earlier. The colonel lives with his asthmatic wife in a small village under martial law, during the years of "La Violencia" in Colombia, when martial law and censorship prevailed. They have lost their only son to political repression. In his memoir Vivir para contarla (Living to Tell the Tale, 2002), García Márquez explained that the story was inspired by his grandfather, who was also a colonel and who never received the pension he was promised. But it's also possible he drew inspiration from his experience of unemployment in 1956 after the newspaper he had been working for shut down, when he witnessed the lives of the many destitute around him.

About Fine (slight fading to topstain); About Fine jacket (slight toning and wrinkling to rear panel's upper edge, trivial spots lower edge). Stefanik A11.1.a and A16.1.a. In the mid-1950s, Berryman began an intensive written analysis of his dreams that "led him toward a new sort of poem, a short, jazzy lyric spoken by a persona, or sometimes by a number of voices. The new poems, which would eventually become The Dream Songs, explored deep recesses of the unconscious, Oedipal tendencies, intense feelings of loss, . . . By the early 1960s he had a suitcase of these new poems, written primarily in eight-line stanzas and spoken by a character named Henry, whom Berryman later described as a white middle-aged man who has suffered an 'irreversible loss.' . . . Berryman put a substantial group of the poems together and published them in 1964 as 77 Dream Songs. . . . Four years later, he published a larger collection of Dream Songs titled His Toy, His Dream, His Rest, bringing the total number published to 385. . . . The themes of The Dream Songs are many, including: love, death, fame, history, politics, and the individual in relation to society. The sequence includes a number of memorable elegies for fellow poets, and remarkable individual poems brooding over the death of a father. However, it is the voice and character of Henry, and the unique style of the poems, driven by Henry's humour, depression, and strange associations, which continue to fascinate readers."

        Night of January 16th.

      The World Publishing Company, New York and Cleveland 1968 - First edition of this play by Ayn Rand. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed and dated in the year of publication by Ayn Rand on the front free endpaper. Rear endpaper with light wear, near fine in a very good dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Night of January 16th is a theatrical play by Ayn Rand, inspired by the death of the "Match King", Ivar Kreuger. Set in a courtroom during a murder trial, an unusual feature of the play is that members of the audience are chosen to play the jury. The court hears the case of Karen Andre, a former secretary and lover of businessman Bjorn Faulkner, of whose murder she is accused. The play does not directly portray the events leading to Faulkner's death; instead the jury must rely on character testimony to decide whether Andre is guilty. The play's ending depends on the verdict. Rand's intention was to dramatize a conflict between individualism and conformity, with the jury's verdict revealing which viewpoint they preferred.
