      Praha [Prague]: Zari, 1968. - ASSOCIATION COPY OF THE CZECH POET'S CLASSIC WORK, PUBLISHED AS A SIGNED LIMITED EDITION AND ADDITIONALLY INSCRIBED BY SEIFERT TO THE ACTOR JIRI VOSKOVEC - Octavo, 9-1/2 inches high by 6-1/4 inches wide. Softcover, bound with a red silk cord in stiff printed creamy white wraps with the title and author's name stamped in black above the initials "TGM" [i.e. T.G. Masaryk] embossed in blind on the front cover. The covers are very slightly soiled. 28 pages plus the colophon, with poems printed in black and titled in red, illustrated with 4 plates printed in gray and black after drawings by Josef Capak. Near fine. Limited edition of 300 numbered copies on handmade paper, signed & dated "28.X.68" by the author.An association copy of this signed limited edition, additionally inscribed in Czech by Seifert to fellow Devetsil poet, the great Czech actor/writer Jiri Voskovec and dated "16.XI.68".The typography is by Oldrich Hlavsa.This publication of Seifert's classic work was inspired by the Prague Spring of 1968 and prepared by Rudolf Havel. In April of 1968, Seifert headed a committee formed by the Writer's Union to rehabilitate literary figures who were persecuted after the Communist takeover in 1948.Jaroslav Seifert (1901-1986) was a leading member of the avant-garde in Czechoslovakia during the 1920's. He was one of the founders of the journal Devetsil. Seifert was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1984 "for his poetry which endowed with freshness, sensuality and rich inventiveness provides a liberating image of the indomitable spirit and versatility of man".Seifert's cycle of poems, "Osm dni" [Eight Days], first published in 1937, expresses the mood of mourning following the death of the founder and first President of Czechoslovakia Thomas Garrigue Masaryk on September 14, 1937.Jiri [George] Voskovec was born Jiri Wachsmann [1905-1981]. He was a much revered Czech actor and playwright. After World War 1 Voskovec appeared with Jan Werich [1905-1980] as one of a comic duo in the tradition of Laurel and Hardy. "Together with Jaroslav Jezek, the father of Czech jazz, they moulded dadaism, circus, jazz, Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and American vaudeville into a new art form. They created a new form of intellectual political musical." - [Josef Skvorecky: "All the Bright Young Men and Women"]. Having created a sensation with their "Vest Pocket Revue" in April 1927, V + W were invited to join the Devetsil theatre group in May. In 1929 they renamed the group "Liberated Theatre" ["Osvobozene Divadlo"] and they took over every element of the productions. During the 1930s the productions of V + W became increasingly anti-fascist and their "Liberated Theatre" was eventually forced to close in 1938. The following year they fled to the United States. After World War 2 Voskovec settled permanently in the U.S. and Werich returned to Czechoslovakia. Both actors went on to have long careers in film, Voskovec appearing in 72 movies and Werich in more than 50. Four of their stage works were made into films: "Powder and Gasoline" [1931], "Your Money or Your Life" [1932], "Heave-ho" [1934], and "The World Belongs to Us" [1937]. Voskovec is known for his role as Juror #11 in "12 Angry Men". [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Fünf Porträts.

      [Berlin um ] 1968 - Etwa 29 : 25 cm. Tusche auf Papier mit ausgesparten Gucklöchern. Signiert. Es handelt sich um schnell getuschte Porträts, teils mit geringen Vorzeichnungen mit Bleistift, die auf Papiereinkaufstüten aufgeklebt wurden und dann gleichsam als »Narrenmasken« dienten. Die fünf Künstler stülpten sich diese Masken über den Kopf und traten so auf Kunstausstellungen oder in der Öffentlichkeit auf. Diese Aktion galt wohl eher als eine Persiflage auf die Happeningkultur der Popgeneration, diente aber als gelungene Werbeaktion: Die Künstlergruppe als Bürgerschreck und Bohemiens sorgten für Aufmerksamkeit. - Diese Gelegenheitsarbeiten waren nach Benutzung obsolet und wurden meist entsorgt. Hier ist ein seltener, wahrscheinlich einziger Beleg zur Verkleidungstechnik der »Rixdorfer« überliefert. - Ali Schindehütte, Josi Vennekamp, Uwe Bremer und Arno Waldschmidt haben ihre Selbstporträts signiert. Das Porträt von Günter Bruno Fuchs fertigte und signierte Arno Waldschmidt. - Als Trägertüten dienten Tüten der Firma »Bärenmarke« (4) und »Hansa-Pils« (1). Die Authentizität ist durch Albert Schindehütte bestätigt. -Gebrauchs- und Lagerspuren. 2.000 gr. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Uncommon Autograph Letter Signed, on art reproduction post card of a Thomas Eakins painting., postmarked New York, New York, Jan. 9, 1968

      - Johns writes to actress Ruth Ford using red felt tip pen on the address side of the card as well as the message side. He draws a wavy line down the center as if to cover the vertical type separating the two sides. "Dear Ruth, I've just got back into the city & find things a bit confused - I may be moving into a new place this [month crossed out] week. I'll call you about 'the Beard' next week. I would love to take you to see it if my housing problem is not completely out of hand by then. I hope it will not be but I try to learn to be like Mayor Lindsay, 'Neither optimistic - nor pessimistic.' As ever, Jasper." The post card was mailed in an envelope addressed to Ford by Johns in the same red ink. John Lindsay was Mayor of New York at the time. Ruth Ford was a Broadway actress, married to Zachary Scott until his death in 1965. She then lived in The Dakota, in Manhattan, with her brother, Charles Henri Ford. Charles was a poet and photographer, known as America's first Surrealist poet. He was the editor of "View" magazine. Charles was a friend of Andy Warhol. Michael McClure, the beat poet who wrote the play Johns mentions, "The Beard," was also a friend of Warhol's. The circle of beat poets, American Surrealists, and Pop artists in the 1950s and '60s arts scene in New York included all of these people as well as Robert Rauschenberg and his partner, Jasper Johns. Michael McClure's play, "The Beard," first opened at the Actor's Workshop Theater in San Francisco, December 18, 1965 and was regarded as highly controversial. When the play moved to the Fillmore in New York for the 1967-1968 theater season, it won two Obie Awards. In the letter offered here postmarked 1968, Johns clearly refers to the New York performance.

        Xerox Book). Carl Andre, Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, Lawrence Weiner.

      Seth Siegelaub & John W. Wendler., New York. 1968 - From the edition limited to 1,000 copies. The curator Seth Siegelaub invited the seven artists to participate in a project that soon became well known as 'the xerox book'. Siegelaub s idea was to transfer the physical space of an exhibition onto the pages of a book. He asked the seven artists to each contribute 25 pages of art work produced with the help of a xerox machine. 'Using the serial possibilities of electrostatic copying processes, the seven artists who contributed to this work were able to transform their drawings and objects by simply arranging them on the surface of a Xerox machine and printing them in sequence. As with many copies of letters that were the ordinary result of photocopying, until artists started using it, bits of dust and incomplete or solarized lines and solids changed their fidelity to the typewritten and drawn originals. In this work, those imperfections have been exploited by artists for whom the process of art making itself was their subject.' (Castleman). One of the seminal conceptual artist books. [Ref. Castleman 112; Lippard - Six Years: The dematerialization of the art object, p.64; Maffei & De Donno - Sol Lewitt Artist's Books, p. 29]. pp. 184. Illustrated throughout with xeroxed work by each of the 7 artists. Original publisher's white wrappers, with glassine jacket. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
