Brennan, Thurgood Marshall, Potter Stewart, Lewis Franklin Powell, Jr., John Paul Stevens, Harry Blackmun and Bryon White. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 18 inches by 21.5 inches. Rare and desirable. The Warren Court is best known for its landmark decisions, which outlawed segregation in public schools and transformed many areas of American law, especially regarding the rights of the accused, ending public school-sponsored prayers, and requiring "one man-one vote" rules of apportionment of election districts. He made the Supreme Court a power center on a more even basis with Congress and the Presidency, especially through four landmark decisions: Brown v. Board of Education (1954), Gideon v. Wainwright (1963), Reynolds v. Sims (1964), and Miranda v. Arizona (1966).

        Night of January 16th.

      New York and Cleveland: The World Publishing Company, 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.

        Apocalypsis cum Figuris

      Warsaw: 1968-1972. Original poster for the play from the collection of Alma Law. 95.5 x 54.5 cm Plakat spektaklu "Apocalypsis cum figuris", 1968. Projekt: Waldemar Krygier | Jerzy Grotowski. This legendary performance at the Laboratorium Theatre directed by Jerzy Grotowski was the artist's last work and is considered to be his most radical. The show took four years to prepare, and premiered in 1969, causing political and moral scandal. The director used unconventional methods of working with actors, and strove to destroy the illusion of a theatre performance, replacing convention with authentic experience. However, this is not the only reason why the legend of Jerzy Grotowski as an artist anathematised by the Church has remained alive for over a quarter of a century.

        The Demand and Supply of Public Goods.

      Rand McNally, Chicago 1968 - First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author in the year of publication (with a two page inscription) on the front free endpaper and onto the verso, "Betty, This will have to substitute for a more formal dedication to you, which, as I said, should have been included here. This is because this book, more than any other stuff of mine, reflects the outcome of the efforts of so many around the center and, all of whom are and remain in a real sense (over) thanks for all that you have done through those "good" years, which like all good things must pass along, hopefully, to be replaced by others that are different, and also exciting. With my compliments and my love Jim Buchanan." The recipient, Betty H. Tillman, was his assistant for 46 years and was the second person Buchanan phoned on October 16, 1986 (after his wife, Ann) when he learned he had been awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics (see Buchanan, 'Notes on Nobelity,' in Better than Plowing: And Other Personal Essays, University of Chicago Press 1992). In near fine condition, with some underlining from the recipient. This work by David Reisman is a survey of the political economy of James Buchanan seeking to explain his theories in detail and evaluate them in depth, covering topics such as the constitution and its failure, democracy, operational rules for the constitution and economics.

        "The Gift" -- an episode of the TV show 'Steve Canyon'

      Universal City, CA: Pegasus Productions Co., Inc. 26 September 1968. 4to. 33 pp. Shooting script, clean and unmarked. Original printed front wrapper [no rear wrapper] closed with two contemporary brass clasps. SIDNEY CARROLL'S COPY, signed by him on the front wrapper and the first text leaf, and annotated in ink "Complete / Revised... 10/23/58." The series was written by Ray Bradbury and Sidney Carroll and directed by Don Taylor, which aired originally on Saturday December 20th 1958 at 9pm on NBC. It was never repeated in the United States. When ABC aired summer reruns of Steve Canyon in 1960, for some reason this one (and 13 others) never got shown. Considered a lost series for nearly 50 years, 'Steve Canyon' was made with the cooperation of the US Air Force and based on Milton Caniff's famous newspaper adventure comic strip of the same name that ran nonstop from 1947 to 1988. The Milton Caniff Estate released all 34 episodes on DVD in 2008-2013. A scarce survival from the studio, owned by famed scriptwriter Sidney Carroll. Front wrapper with upper corner torn and repaired with tape.

        2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)

      MGM 1968 - Vintage original 36 x 14" (90 x 35 cm.) insert poster, USA Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester, Douglas Rain, dir: Stanley Kubrick; MGM. A story of evolution and the race between the computer HAL 9000 (Rain) and the human astronaut Dave Bowman (Dullea) to reach Jupiter and the monolith found there which signals all other monolith placers. The film, a master in technical achievement and truly an artistic masterpiece in the science fiction realm, realistically detailed the future of technology -- much of which has come to pass during the 40-years since its release. There was an Academy Award for best special visual effects, and many nominations including those for director Kubrick, the writers and art direction. Poster is cleaned and beautifully paper-backed. Minor touch-up to corner pinholes and at very edge of blank white side margins, imperceptible fold lines. NEAR FINE

        The Green House.

      Harper & Row, New York 1968 - First edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original green cloth. Fine in a very near fine dust jacket that shows just a touch of wear to the crown. Signed by the author on the title page. A very sharp copy. The Green House draws on Vargas Llosa's experiences growing up near a brothel in the northwestern Peruvian town of Piura. The novel, which juggles multiple plots, locations, shifting points of view, and more than 30 characters, reflects Peruvian society's vast inequalities. Critics considered it a classic "total" novel--a fusion of style, subject, and form that convinces readers that an illusory reality may be even "truer" than reality. "Mario Vargas Llosa's message seems to be that man, like the jungle, has a mysterious energy which cannot in the end be explained or subdued. His characters may be saints, villains, victims, or nothing in particular, but they break out of the pages of this magnificent novel with the stubborn uncontainability of life itself" (V.S. Pritchett, The New Statesman). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
