        The Hunting of the Snark. An Agony in Eight Fits/Die Jagd nach dem Schnark. Agonie in acht Krämpfen.

      (Stuttgart): Manus Presse, 1968. Quarto. (104)pp. One of 130 copies, signed by the artist. Illustrated with nineteen full-page lithographs from etchings by the surrealist Max Ernst. There are also three small vignettes. This is a bilingual edition of Carroll's nonsensical epic poem about a crew of ten men in pursuit of a mythic beast. Vividly colored illustrations are paired with the original English poem, and the same images are repeated in stark black & white to accompany the German text, translated by Klaus Reichert. The Hunting of the Snark was created late in Ernst's career and was the second of three works by Lewis Carroll illustrated by him. Born in Germany, Ernst began his career in art in the 1910s, inspired by the work of post-Impressionist artists and Pablo Picasso. Although primarily a painter, he also branched out into collage, sculpture, and lithographic printing, and he finally achieved financial success after the publication of his treatise, "Beyond Painting," in 1948. Loose, as issued, in publisher's cloth chemise and slipcase. Slight fading, soiling, and a small bump to slipcase, otherwise fine.

      First edition, one of 100 hors commercenumbered copies on B.F.K. de Rives, the only large paper copies with 662 other B.F.K. de Rives.Handsome autograph inscription dated Février 1968 and signed from Samuel Beckett to his friend the painter Geer (Van Velde) and his wife Lise.Samll stains to upper cover, marginally and slightly sunned. "What to say of the sliding planes, the shimmering contours, the cut-out figures in the fog, the balance that any little thing can break, breaking and re-forming themselves under our very eyes? How to talk about the colors that breathe and pant? Of the swarming stasis? Of this world without weight, without force, without shadow? Here everything moves, swims, fells, comes back, falls apart, re-forms. Everything stops, non-stop. One would say it's the revolt of the internal molecules of a stone a split second before its disintegration. That is literature" (The van Veldes' Art, or the World and the Trousers, in Cahiers d'Art n°11-12, Paris 1945).Beckett here is not talking - despite how it may appear - about his literary oeuvre, but about the paintings of Geer Van Velde, going on to add a few lines later "[Bram] Van Velde paints distance. G[eer] Van Velde paints succession." This elegy, published on the occasion of the double exhibition of the Van Veldes (Geer at Maeght's and Bram at the Galerie Mai) is the first important text on these painters, more or less unknown to the public at the time: "We've only just started spouting nonsense about the Van Velde brothers, and I'm the first. It's an honor." This is also the first critical text written directly in French by a young Irish writer who had not, as yet, published anything in France.Thus, the first and most important of Beckett's writings on art, composed at the dawn of his literary career, establishes - right from the start - a fundamental relationship between his developing work and his friends' art: "Thus this text has often been read in a hollow or in the mirror, as one of the rare designations of Beckett's poetry (to come) by the man himself, a sort of anamorphic program of writing," (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique by Pierre Vilar).A real statement of dramaturgical intent, this fundamental text whose introspective value Beckett lays out from the introduction on ("one does nothing but tell stories with words") ushers in the writer's most fruitful creative period. In essence, like Apollinaire and Cendrars, Beckett draws from the artistic problems of his contemporaries the catalyst of his own future writing through "the deepest questioning of narrative, figurative or poetical presuppositions" (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur).The major influence of modern painting on the narrative structure - or destructuring - of Beckett's drama and novels would be pointed out and examined by a number of thinkers, among them Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva and Maurice Blanchot. It was, in fact, with the art of the Van Veldes (first Geer then Bram) that Beckett began to formalize this desire to translate the pictorial question into dramaturgical terms. Thus it was that he rejected Nicolas de Staël's set design for Godot, since: "the set must come out of the text without adding anything to it. As for the visual comfort of the audience, you can imagine how much I care. Do you really think you can listen with the backdrop of Bram's set, or see anything other than him?" (Letter to Georges Duthuit, 1952).When he met Geer in 1937, "Beckett was going through a major existential crisis and had just been reworking his first novel, Murphy, which had been rejected by a great many publishers. He was lost in alcohol, leaving Ireland and moving once and for all to Paris" (Le Pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). He returned from a long artistic journey in Germany, where he was marked by classical works as well as contemporary art - it was during this journey that he discovered Caspar David Friedrich's Two Men Contemplating the Moon, his source for Waiting for Godot.Art was thus at the heart of his creative thinking and the friendship that would tie him to Geer and later his brother Bram and their sister Jacoba (with whom his relationship may have been more than merely friendly), and which would profoundly influence his life and writing. His first writing on art is a short piece on Geer Van Velde, whose works he pressed on his new lover Peggy Guggenheim when she set up her new London gallery. Despite the relative failure of the exhibition (which followed Kandinsky's), he got his friend a one-year scholarship from Peggy. James Knowlson even thinks that "if Beckett maintained close links with Peggy for a long time, it was first and foremost because she could be convinced to give his artist friends a serious helping hand, starting with Geer Van Velde" (in Beckett, p. 474). Enigmatic, the little piece that Beckett wrote at the time at Peggy's request already contained a dramaturgical kernel of thought: " Believes painting should mind its own business, i.e. colors. i.e no more say Picasso than Fabritius, Vermeer. Or inversely."   Slower to develop, his friendship with Bram and interest in the latter's painting slowly changed Beckett's outlook on Geer's art and when, ten years after his first meeting the brothers, he wrote The World and the Trousers,  Beckett brought up to date a duality symbolized by the title, taken from an anecdote given as a legend to the article. The world is the "imperfect" work of God, made in six days, to which the tailor compares the perfection of his trousers, made over six months.The link between this anecdote and the Van Velde brothers is perhaps to be found in the second essay Beckett devoted to them, in 1948, Peintres de l'empêchement [Painters of the Problem] (Derrière le miroir n° 11/12) : "One of them said: I cannot see the object in order to represent it because I am who I am. There are always two sorts of problems - the object-problem and the 'eye-problemGeer Van Velde is an artist of the former sortBram Van Velde of the latter."Resistance of the object or impotence of the artist, this tale, the "true primary narrative core in kôan zen form," (P. Vilar) would later find itself scattered throughout Beckett's work and would more specifically take centre stage in Endgame, whose similarity, by the by, with the art of Geer Van Velde was noted by Roger Blin. "At the time, he was friends with the Dutch brothers Geer and Bram Van Velde, both painters. Geer was a painter in the style of Mondrian. I have the feeling that Beckett saw Endgame as a painting by Mondrian with very tidy partitions, geometric separations and musical geometry," (R. Blin, Conversations avec Lynda Peskine in Revue d'Esthétique).    Beckett's growing affinity for Bram Van Velde's work and the energy he put into promoting his work, especially to the galerie Maeght or his friend the art historian Georges Duthuit, was no doubt to the detriment of his relationship with Geer. Nonetheless, despite some misunderstandings, their friendship remained unbroken; as did the silent but anxious dialogue that the writer maintained with the art of the younger Van Velde brother, two of whose large canvases he owned. "The big painting by Geer finally gave me a sign. Shame that it should have turned out so badly. But perhaps that's not true after all" (letter to Georges Duthuit, March 1950). "Geer shows great courage. Ideas that are a little cutting, but maybe only in appearance. I have always had a great respect for them. But not enough, I think" (letter to Mania Péron, August 1951)The death of Geer Van Velde in 1977 affected Beckett deeply and coincided with a period of intense nostalgia during which the writer decided to give himself over to "a great clear-out" of his house so as to live between "walls as grey as their owner." Confiding his state of mind to his friend, the stage designer Jocelyn Herbert, Beckett bore witness to the indefatigable affection he had nurtured for the painter over forty years: "more canvases on display, including the big Geer Van Velde behind the piano."A precious witness to the friendship of these fellow travelers who had, ever since checking the veracity of the game of chess played by Murphy and Mr. Endon for Beckett's first novel, tackled together the great challenges of modernity: "It's that, deep down, they don't care about painting. What they're interested in is the human condition. We'll come back to that" (Beckett on the Van Velder brothers in The World and the Trousers). Les éditions de minuit Paris 1968 14,5x19,5cm broché

        A Hall of Mirrors

      London: Bodley Head. (1968). The first British edition of his first book, a novel of drifters in New Orleans in the early Sixties caught up in the web of a quasi-religious political machine. Winner of the William Faulkner Award for best first novel of the year as well as a Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship Award. Signed by the author. A very uncommon edition, with a single printing estimated to have been 1000 copies. This edition reprints a glowing blurb by Wallace Stegner, Stone's teacher at the Stanford Writing Workshop, with a humorous misprint: instead of printing that "Stone writes like ... someone so high on pot that he is scraping his shoes on the stars," this edition has Stegner saying that Stone was "scraping his shoes on the stairs" -- a very different image, to be sure. Basis for a film, WUSA (the call letters of the right-wing radio station that figures prominently in the book), starring Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward and Anthony Perkins. A fine copy in a slightly spine-tanned dust jacket, else fine. A very nice copy, and uncommon signed. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine.

      1968 - Archive of correspondence between Federico Fellini and Daniel Selznick regarding Satyricon and The Voyage of G. Mastorna Archive of three typed letters signed from Federico Fellini to Daniel Selznick (along with carbons of Selznick's several letters in reply, as well as an associated memo), written in 1968 and 1969, making reference to "Satyricon" and more specifically to "The Voyage of G. Mastorna," a film project very dear to Fellini that held great interest for Selznick as well -- but was never produced. Mastorna loomed over the second half of Fellini's career, the masterpiece that was perpetually in revision and on the director's mind. Marcus Perryman, in his introduction to The Journey of G. Mastorna: The Film Fellini Didn't Make (Berghahn Books, 2013) writes: "[Fellini] shrouded the film in mystery partly to keep open the option of making it. Every new project he worked on after his 'Satyricon' had first to get past the recurring thought, illusion or delusion of 'Mastorna.' After the initial failure, Fellini tinkered with the script for the next ten years. He came close to returning to it after 'Il Casanova,' which his analyst considered to be an important step in his self-therapy and one that 'Mastorna' would have extended further. "By his own admission, he repeatedly plundered the script for his new films: for the airport scene and award ceremony in 'Toby Dammit,' for the pope's regalia in 'Fellini Roma,' for verbatim inclusions and characters in 'Amarcord.' 'Prova d'orchestra' investigates the world of orchestral music, to which Mastorna belongs, albeit focusing more on the conductor as dictator than the musician as acolyte; 'La città delle donne' has numerous affinities with the unmade film. The bus and motel in 'Mastorna' are very much like Ginger's bus and motel and 'Mastorna' includes one of Fred's dance routines. Some said 'Ela nave va' was 'Mastorna' in disguise. . Fabrizio Borin calls Mastorna the character Fellini 'thought about, continually returned to, abandoned, repudiated, sought out, feared, hated and never created." Daniel Selznick, the son of David O. Selznick, is best known as a producer for films such as Peter Bogdanovich's Targets (1968) and various documentaries about Hollywood. His association with his father allowed him many opportunities to meet and correspond with numerous actors, actresses, and directors of note.

        Original Portrait of Ringo

      - Enormous original ink and watercolor portrait of Ringo by Heinz Edelmann, 31 x 47 inches, showing him in a Yellow Submarine-esque striped suit jacket against a psychedelic background. Framed and in very good condition, with scattered staining and soiling. Edelmann, a German illustrator and designer, is best known for his art direction and character designs for the Beatles' 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine. This work is unsigned and was presumably intended for some sort of display, possibly a performance set or event promotion. It may have been a preliminary draft for one of those things  - we have puzzled over the name spelling and frankly don't know what to make it of it. We acquired this from a French collector, who likewise didn't know what to make of that feature. But the piece is certainly contemporary to the period and based on the confidence and style of the line and overall impression, we feel confident in ascribing this to Edelman himself. However, as the work is unsigned, we must allow for the possibility it may have been executed by another hand, possibly an assistant or imitator. In any event, impressive in size and style, this is an extraordinary Beatles piece.

        Typed Letter Signed about the Freuds and childhood blindness

      London, 1968. unbound. Two pages each measuring 11 x 8.5 inches, Maresfield Gardens, London, Jan. 7, 1968, concerning British psychoanalyst Ernest Jones and his relationship with Anna and Sigmund Freud, with additional recollections concerning Dr. Melanie Klein. Written to New York book editor and writer Robert Sussman Stewart, in part: "...Dr. Jones came to Vienna a few days after the Anschluss. I was there at the time. I do not think he tried to rescue Professor Freud so much as to try and make arrangements for the family to come to England as well as for some of Professor's chosen co-workers. This he did in his most helpful and competent manner. Dr. Jones's greatest wish was that Professor and his family should come to England, but above all that they should not go anywhere else...I have always understood that Dr. Jones invited Melanie Klein to come to London to start Child Analysis there. From then on he supported her point of view rather than Anna Freud's in her teaching of child analysis. What is interesting is that Melanie Klein in her later years had the feeling that Dr. Jones was not supporting her sufficiently and felt bitterly about it." With additional content pertaining to the congenitally totally blind child who she believes "should be considered quite apart from 'the blind' who have in the present, or have had in the past some degree of sight." Accompanied by the original postmarked envelope. Two horizontal folds; boldly signed and in near fine condition. World acclaimed child psychoanalyst and lifelong partner of Anna Freud, with whom she collaborated on several ground-breaking studies on the analysis of children. Her work with blind children is still considered to be a landmark of empathic scientific observation. She was the daughter of artist Louis Comfort Tiffany and the granddaughter of Charles Lewis Tiffany, the founder of Tiffany & Co.
