        Poster]: Michael McClure's The Beard. Directed by Robert Gist. Warner Playhouse

      Warner Playhouse, [Los Angeles] 1968 - Poster. Photographically illustrated on thin card stock printed in red, black, and gray. Approximately 8.5" x 14.5". A bit skinned on the verso where tape has been removed, else very near fine. Poster for the 1968 Los Angeles premiere of the play, where it had migrated after the productions had been shut down in both New York and San Francisco for the simulated oral sex scene in the play. The cast of the L.A. production were arrested 14 nights in a row. In a letter to Stan Brakhage in September 1968, McClure complained, "I'll have to return to L.A. for the opening of the trial of Beard, which starts September 16." The poster was designed by Wallace Berman, publisher of *Semina* and considered by some as the "Father of Assemblage Art," who also provided the photograph of his bare-breasted wife Shirley seen holding a worn pair of boots which graces the poster. Jim Morrison of The Doors attended the L.A. performance and apparently expressed interest in playing the lead in a film version, but alas that contribution to film history went unfulfilled.

        Flowers of the Brazilian Forests Collected and Painted by Margaret Mee Foreword on the Brazilian Forests by Roberto Burle Marx with a Preface by Sir George Taylor.

      1968 - Folio (530 x 390mm). Original full natural vellum by Zaehnsdorf, gilt facsimile of author's signature blocked on upper board, vignette of a tejú-assu lizard after Mee blocked in gilt on lower board, spine lettered in gilt, endpapers with printed vignettes of the tejú-assu after Mee, top edges gilt, original green cloth slipcase with gilt lettering-piece on upper panel, original shipping carton addressed to Richard Mitchell, Aldham, Essex and with limitation numbers; pp. [80], title printed in green and black; illustration: original gouache over pencil painting on paper watermarked 'Raffaello Fabbriano' signed 'Margaret Mee' and titled 'Bauhinia' and further inscribed '44' mounted as an additional frontispiece, retaining tissue guard, 32 colour-lithographed plates including frontispiece, all plates retaining tissue guards, text illustrations, double-page map [after Greville Mee] printed in red and black showing Mee's journeys and the locations where the flowers depicted were collected, with loose original prospectus; a fine copy; First and only edition, limited to 500 copies, this no. 42 of 100 de luxe copies signed by Mee to verso of title page and with an original gouache by Mee. Both the issues of 100 de luxe copies and of six copies reserved for the artist contain an original gouache painting by Mee mounted as a frontispiece. Mee's early expeditions into the Amazon region culminated in this, the first major publication of her Brazilian flower paintings and a botanical book of the greatest importance. Not only are the images the result of painstaking observation and meticulous attention to detail, the descriptions -- supplemented by notes from Mee's own travel diaries -- were written by the noted Brazilian, American, and British taxonomists Luiz Emygdio de Mello, Bassett Maguire, Andrà Robyns, Richard S. Cowan, Lyman B. Smith, John J. Wurdack, B.L. Burtt, David R. Hunt, Guido F.J. Pabst, and Raulino Reitz. The text, which is prefaced by an introduction by Mee's friend Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994), the famed Brazilian artist and landscape gardener, has an authoritative rigour that supports the magnificent illustrations. As George Taylor (the Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew) remarked in his preface, 'special scientific interest and importance attaches to certain of the plates, which portray species new to science, or are illustrated for the first time, and the consummate quality of all the paintings is enhanced by botanical accuracy in the observation of detail [.] Mee's work is of an unusually high order of excellence, and in the best tradition of flower painting'. The three new species described and illustrated are the Catasetum meeae (no. 16, 'collected by Margaret Mee in the State of Amazonas, at the Içana River [in December 1964], and brought into cultivation at São Paolo where it flowered in July 1965', and named for Mee by Pabst); the Spathiphyllum grazielae (no. 31, collected in Paranapiacaba, São Paolo, in February 1967); the Neoregelia margaretae (no. 25, collected by Mee by the Rio Içana in January 1965 and named for her by Smith). Ruth Stiff and Simon Mayo state that, 'during her journeys, Margaret Mee collected four of the five species of Neoregalia known from Amazonian Brazil, and is credited with first discovering three of them herself -- N. margaretae, N. leviana, and N. meeana. Margaret's significant contribution to the knowledge of this genus helped establish her reputation as both a scientist and a botanical explorer. As Neoregalia margaretae has not yet been recollected, it is known only from Margaret's collections' (M. Mee Margaret Mee's Amazon (Woodbridge and Kew: 2004), p. 302). Flowers of the Brazilian Forests was conceived when Mee's work attracted the attention of Sir George Taylor, the Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, after she had won the Royal Horticultural Society's Grenfell Medal in 1960.

      Faber & Faber 1968 - 1st edition, 1st impression. Published in 1968 by Faber. Book is in remarkably good condition for its age. Boards are lovely and bright while corners show just a trace of shelf wear. No inscriptions or internal markings whatsoever. Faint fine dust mottling along top closed edge of text block. Would be a near fine copy but for a section missing from the jacket along its bottom front edge, and a 1cm-deep closed tear along its top front edge. A real shame considering how well preserved this copy is. The 1st edition print run was of 6000 copies and many of these went to schools and libraries to get stamped and stained and generally treated with all expected irreverence. Perhaps the hardest to find all all Hughes trade 1st's. Illustrated by George Adamson. Due to insurance international shipping will be £49. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.
