         Marc Chagall Drawings and Watercolours for The Ballet.

      New York. Tudor Publishing Company. 1969. Folio original cloth with dust wrapper. With 68 reproductions in full colour. With an original colour lithograph by Chagall created especially for this edition. A near fine copy in original slightly sunned and faded slipcase. First edition. Contains Chagall's original designs for Aleko, The Firebird, and Daphnis and Chloe. Included are both decors and costumes; sketches for dancers, monsters, peasants, magicians; and the magical sets. From the library of Alicia Markova with her "The Dame Alicia Markova Collection" stamp on the front free endpaper. An important association copy. Markova spent much time working and socializing with Chagall and his beloved wife Bella during the entire creative process for Aleko. The trio would shop the Mexixo City's marketplace together, gathering inspiration from the intense local colours as they scooped up vibrantly dyed fabrics and intricate decorative trims. Bella, an excellent seamstress, would then stitch the various materials together under her husband's direction as he experimented with fanciful layering. Markova also contributed, making exotic armlets and necklaces for her costumes from decorative Mexican gold coins. As the firey gypsy temptress Zemphira, Markova had numerous costume changes, one more exotic than the next, and all covered in layered nettings, fabric flourishes and colorful appliqués. Chagall hand-painted each garment while Markova modeled it, so he could achieve the perfect placement for his symbolic design details. Best known as an exquisitely refined and ethereal classical ballerina - the quintessential Giselle - Markova was a revelation to critics and audiences alike as the perfect embodiment of a "priestess of evil," as one critic remarked. Chagall's costumes went a long way in helping Markova create that acclaimed performance, as dance critic Grace Roberts described: "With sunburnt make-up, wild hair, and a vivid red costume, her very appearance was a shock, though a delightful one. Nothing was left of the familiar Markova but the thistledown lightness, and authoritative dancing style, now turned to the uses of demi-caractère." On the bodice of Markova's first costume, Chagall painted a small red heart just below the ballerina's own, with a tree of life beneath it to illustrate the initial hopefulness of passionate love. Ever after, Chagall signed all his correspondences to Markova with his name inside a heart - not as a token of romantic love - but as a reminder of their happy times working together. The pair would reunite in 1945 for the The Firebird ballet with music by Igor Stravinsky, once again with Markova dancing the lead role. In addition to creating a breathtaking costume for Markova with large beak and real bird-of-paradise plumes, Chagall developed a special body make-up for his fine feathered friend. First a dark brown body-wash was applied to Markova's shoulders, arms, and back, followed by patches of grease. Gold-dust was then sprinkled all over her (or thrown at her, as she liked to say) sticking to any oily surfaces. While dancing the role, Markova's body glistened like a bird's feathers in the sun. Though a magical effect, it took hours in a hot tub to soak off, forcing Markova to leave the theatre many an evening still covered in itchy gold dust. But she said it was always worth it, and she and Chagall remained great friends for life.

         [GERMAINE GREER] Suck: First European Sex Paper. Numbers 1 - 8.

      London and Amsterdam : Joy Publications, 1969-1974. Unbound, folio, illustrated, partly coloured; Number 1 with the original Suck-publishers stamp (change of address), Number 5 with the inserted 4 page comic; some some light staining and spine tears to Number 1, else a near fine set. A publishing landmark of the Sexual Revolution. Suck: First European Sex Paper was founded in 1969 by William Levy, Germaine Greer, Susan Janssen, Lynne Tillman, Heathcote Williams, and Willem de Ridder. The first issue was published in London in 1969, and the remaining seven issues in Amsterdam, between 1972 and 1974. The magazine's content was most definitely not aimed exclusively at a heterosexual readership. Its sexually liberated agenda was to supply, without prejudice, information and uncensored graphic content to readers of all sexual orientations, and its pages include a great deal of content relating to gay and lesbian sex (Number 4 for example, includes an extensive and detailed Gay Guide for Europe), as well discussions of incest and bestiality. '... the English language Suck: First European Sex Paper ... offered erotic stories and images including everything from oral sex to sadomasochism (SM) and bestiality. It had strips, graphic design, close-up shots of female and male genitals, and organised a Wet Dream Festival. [Magazines such as Candy, Chick, Gandalf and Suck] were eagerly embraced by growing parts of the Dutch public while conservative groups protested but were eventually drowned by the erotic flood. These media brought sex into most households.' (Hekma, Gert. A radical break with the puritanical past: the Dutch case. In: Sexual revolutions. London : Palgrave Macmillan, 2014, 67-8). Australian feminist Germaine Greer was one of the magazine's founding editors. She later commented: 'Talking about sex was dangerous in those times. I was called at least once a month to the office of the vice squad' (Ravage#1 10-01-2003). Greer continued as an editor and contributor throughout Suck's existence. Her essays included I am a Whore (Number 6) and Lady Love Your Cunt (Number 2), reprinted in The Madwoman's Underclothes. The magazine also published an explicit photographic portrait of Greer displaying a close-up of her genitals (Number 7). Greer, however, having become disillusioned with the male-oriented direction the publication had taken, resigned from the paper after this issue; her resignation letter, in which she argues that Suck had now become both pseudo- and counter-revolutionary, was published in the final issue, Number 8. OCLC locates only one complete set (New York Public Library).

         Ubik.

      Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc, 1969. First edition of one of Philip K. Dick's most acclaimed novels. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Philip K. Dick on the title page. A touch of rubbing, near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Jacket design by Peter Rauch. Rare and desirable signed. Ubik "features the creation of a subjective world by a group of people killed in an accident but restored to a kind of consciousness within a preservative machine, though any final determination of what is real in the book is made superbly problematical" (Clute & Nicholls, 329). "A brilliantly realized science fiction future darkened by Kafkaesque paranoia. As portrayed by Dick, a world in which cryogenic suspension has abolished traditional concepts of death and in which psychics can alter the future by changing the past is one that offers no foundation for objective truth" (Barron, Fantasy and Horror 6-113). It was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 greatest novels since 1923.

         Damnation Alley (+ Author Signed 1st edition 1970 paperback of same story)

      New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons(1969). This 2-book package includes the 1st edition/1st printing, G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1969 hardback in dustjacket + the 1970 1st paperback edition (Berkley Medallion Edition, June, 1970, SBN: 425018466). The paperback has been SIGNED by Roger Zelazny on its title page. Will be up to a future owner whether to keep both books together for the signature, or to cut out the signed title page of the paperback to lay into the hardback. The hardback 1st editon/1st printing book is in Fine condition, bound in red cloth with black spine and front panel printing. It is straight, clean, tight (probably unread) with just a touch of cloth softening from shelving to lower spine end and a couple of 'very' tiny flecks (smaller than a very sharp pencil lead) on the page edges. The Near Fine+ dustjacket is crisp, clean, unfaded and price intact. It has a few tiny edge nicks to flap fold ends and upper spine end. A beautiful copy of a hard to find in decent condition 1st edition sci-fi book. The paperback is straight, clean, tight (for sure unread) with what I think were originally yellow page edges that have faded and toned to be almost light tan like the text block paper - and in very small, almost illegible letters (thin outlines only) 'Jun 22 1970' is stamped on the bottom page edges in light green. Aside from the age toning to the text paper and the almost invisible date-stamping, the paperback is in Near Fine condition - no spine creasing, the cover and pages are good but a bit tanned-looking on the page edges, there's a bit of light toning to spine and back panel of the cover - but the title page is not wrinkled (that was me being careful not to stress the spine when I made the image). This story was made into a movie in 1977. The book version is a hard-hitting post-nuclear apocalyptic story that unfortunately for the movie industry's finances was cut and twisted into an unrecognizable mess - but then Star Wars came out in 1977 also so it might not have mattered anyway.; 8-3/16" x 5-3/4"; 157 pages; Signed by Author, 10, 20, 24, F/NF, LOC: 7795238

The letter reads: "Minister of Defense, The Kirya (Tel-Aviv), 3rd in the month of Av (July 18,1969), PERSONAL, To member of the Knesset Avraham Verdiger - hello, Unfortunately I did not get a chance to answer your question #8414 that was asked on the parliament's meeting. I am attaching the answer from the general command about the orders for burial of citizens who died in Sinai. Regards, Moshe Dayan, Minister of defense.", Copy: Knesset chairman. [page 2] As follows, our suggestions for your answer: A. IDF is responsible for soldiers' casualties; the police are the ones to take care of citizen casualties B. In this case, it is a citizen who was killed in Sinai, which is not the police jurisdiction. The body was transferred by the army to a hospital in Be'er Sheva. The police were informed of the incident; the police were in charge of the paperwork for releasing the body from the hospital. C. Since the incident, we contacted the bodies who were involved and demanded new orders of operation to be set. It shall be that an announcement of a dead citizen to the police in an occupied area will cause for the police to take all responsibility for the case." Fine with punch holes.

AN EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO RARE copy of the FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING, in the PUBLISHER'S ORIGINAL BOX, and having an EXCELLENT PROVENANCE, being the copy of IRVING LOUIS HOROWITZ, the Editor-in Chief of Trans-Action.

The work's original flexible binding is in Fine condition with a small push at the rear side's top edge near the spine, and the pages show only mild age toning. An Italian Architect who emigrated to America, Paolo Soleri was a lecturer at Arizona State University's College of Architecture and winner of a 2006 National Design Award. He also won an American Institute of Architects Gold Medal for Craftmanship (1963) and a Leone d'oro at the Venice Biennale of Architecture (2000). Soleri spent some 18 months in at Taliesen West in Scottsdale as a student under the American Architectural giant Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright's influence can be seen in Scoleri's designs. However, while Wright worked on a predominantly horizontal plane with communities could occupy large amounts of space, Soleri, coming from Europe where living conditions were much more compact, he envisioned cities on a vertical plane with multi-use buildings and easy walking access to stores, offices, and the like by foot rather than by car as in the more wide-open United States, in consequence of which he developed a strong and visionary focus on urban planning, and a concept he called "Arcology", a harmonious marriage of architecture and ecology, a marriage which could be achieved by building a city in a compact, three-dimensional style which was neither strictly horizontal nor strictly vertical and which had a minimal impact on the environment.

Walter Kohlhoff ( *1906Berlin 1981 ebenda ). W. Kohlhoff war über 20 Jahre lang Vorstandsmitglied des Vereins Berliner Künstler. Maler urbaner Landschaften Berlins und seiner Umgebung. Kohlhoff zeigt seine Stadtbilder menschenleer und verleiht ihnen somit teils einen denkmalhaften Charakter. In seinen Arbeiten wendet er sich vor allem den ruhigen Orten der Großstadt wie auch Hinterhöfen, Großstadtdächern und abgelegenen Arealen wie Seitenstrassen, Kleingärten, Bahngleisen, Fabrikanlagen etc.. Er malte im Rahmen einer späten Neusachlichkeit. ( Artikelnummer 15442 )
