        Portnoy’s Complaint.

      New York: Random House, 1969. First edition. Octavo, original blue cloth, red topstain. Signed by Philip Roth on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. A superior example. Along with Saul Bellow's Herzog, Philip Roth's Portnoy's Complaint defined Jewish American literature in the 1960s. Roth's masterpiece takes place on the couch of a psychoanalyst, an appropriate jumping-off place for an insanely comical novel about the Jewish American experience. Roth has written several great books--Goodbye, Columbus and When She Was Good among them, but it is perhaps Portnoy's Complaint for which he is best known. "Philip Roth has the fineset eye for the details of American life since Sinclair Lewis" (Stanley Edgar Hyman).

        Concetto spaziale

      Quartini sciolti in cartelletta (loose as issued in original portfolio) Cartella della serie "Le pagine", contenente un'acquaforte originale di Lucio Fontana ("Concetto spaziale"), numerata e firmata dall'Artista (cm lastra 20,2 x 14,5 su fondino giallo) ed un testo di Leonardo Sinisgalli ("Diario"), con firma autografa dell'Autore . cm 50 x 35. Perfetto (Mint). Edizione originale di 50 esemplari numerati (n.27). Questa acquaforte di Fontana è probabilmente l'ultima sua opera su carta eseguita poco prima di morire. L'editore Bucciarelli chiarisce al colophon: "Questo omaggio alla memoria di Lucio Fontana esce nell'approssimarsi della prima ricorrenza della sua scomparsa in cinquanta copie numerate. La lastra da lui incisa e firmata nella primavera del 1968 doveva servire per una differente pubblicazione, ma lo scritto del suo amico Leonardo Sinisgalli ha suggerito all'editore di ricordare in questa maniera l'Artista e l'Amico" (Roma 28 maggio 1969). Scrive Sinisgalli nel "Diario" che accompagna l'opera: "Il buco è un'idea. Il buco è la non-poesia se si fa un buco nella poesia, è il vuoto se si fa un buco nel pieno, è il pieno se si fa un buco nel vuoto. Un buco nel vuoto è un'idiozia, ma è forse l'unica immagine dell'antimateria. Da un foro invisibile si può far passare l'universo. Da un piccolo foro si può svuotare tutto lo spazio."\

Deuxième édition (la première ayant paru l'année précédente) de ce recueil de poésies choisies en allemand extraites des ouvrages Mohn und Gedächtnis, Von Schwelle zu Schwelle, Sprachgitter, Die Niemandsrose et Atemwende. Envoi autographe signé de Paul Celan à Pierre Souvtchinsky : "Für Pierre Souvtchinsky, / in verehrung / Paul Celan". Musicologue d'origine russe, grand ami de Stravinsky, Pierre Souvtchinsky émigra en France suite à la révolution au début des années 20. Il fréquenta de nombreux artistes et écrivains et devint après-guerre un ami proche de René Char par l'intermédiaire de qui il fit probablement la connaissance de Paul Celan. Extrêmement érudit et cultivé, il parlait parfaitement le français et l'allemand. René Char semble d'ailleurs avoir soumis à Pierre Souvtchinsky la traduction d'"A une sérénité crispée" faite par Celan pour avoir son opinion : "Merci davoir pensé à menvoyer la traduction de À une sérénité crispée. Je la montrerai à Pierre Souvtchinsky et peut-être à Beaufret." (Extrait de la lettre de Char à Paul Celan du [18. 4. 1958]).

Victor trouve un semblant d'équilibre près des fenêtres qui marquent la transition entre l'enfermement et le dehors. Les bougies et les airs de mandoline jouent aussi les médiateurs. Mais Victor paie son adaptation à des relations sociales en perdant sa capacité à vivre comme un sauvage.Solange Vidaud était une dactylographe des plus réputées, auxquels les plus grands faisaient appels pour leurs versions définitives de scénario (Truffaut, Malle, ...)

        SUCK First European Sexpaper (Issues no. 1 - 8)

      London and Amsterdam: Joy Publications 1969-1974 - Newspaper - "First European Sexpaper" in tabloid format. Eight issues. Profusely illustrated with black and white and colour photographs and drawings. First four issues printed on news print, issues 5,6 and 7 on coated paper and the final issue 8 on heavy gloss paper. Issue no. 1 was published in London in September 1969. However, following the closure of the London PO Box address and the raiding of Suck's offices, the remaining 7 were published in Amsterdam by Joy Publications. Issue no. 1 has some wearing and small tears to the hinge but is, overall, in good condition considering its fragile news print paper. Issue no. 2 has some marking to the foot of the front cover and some wear. The other issues are all very good or near fine. Issue no 5 contains the loosely inserted pages designed to made into a sex-comic. This is a very good, complete set of a scabrous, revolutionary, humorous, and still relevant magazine that undermined, whilst, paradoxically, defining much of the prevailing culture of the late 60s and early 70s. To occupy such a space is rare and difficult. Very good The aim of Suck was to create "a new revolutionary sex-publication." From the beginning, the magazine worked in the spaces between between pornography, sexual liberation and gender identity. This was controversial then and remains, of course, controversial today with Germaine Greer still battling tirelessly at the front. Greer is now "no-platformed" for her views on what constitutes a woman. Suck, ultimately, left its readers in little doubt. Greer famously resigned from the paper after issue no.7 (the final issue, no.8, carried her resignation letter). For Greer (and probably for readers today), what began as sexual liberation for woman had become little more than a means for male oppression and aggression. Greer, in the final issue, described Suck as both pseudo- and counter- revolutionary. Reading the paper now, it is fascinating to see where the counter-culture ended and a new culture had begun. Suck was edited by William Levy, Jim Haynes, Germaine Greer and Heathcote Williams. It included contributions by W.H.Auden, William S. Burroughs, Tom Clark, Robert Crumb, Michael McClure, Valarie Solanas, Jean Stapleton, Alexander Trocchi (a translation of Apollinaire). This is a scarce set. Only one full set listed on Worldcat (in New York Public Library). We are also selling a first edition of Virgin Sperm Dancer (ref. 2715) and Wet Dreams (ref. 2716). We would be happy to discuss a combined price for these together with the full set of Suck. [Attributes: First Edition]

      1969. Collection of 14 maps (nos. MI 1-13 and MI 18). Mostly in full colour; various sizes but mostly ca. 70 x 100 cm; scale mostly 1:100,000 (MI 3: 1:250,000; MI 6: 1:2,470 [b&w]; MI 7: ca. 1:1,600 [b&w with red overlays]; MI 8: 1:800 [b&w with red overlays]; MI 9: set of 2 maps [ca. 1:2,340 and 1:1,200] and 1 cross-section [all b&w, maps with red overlays]). All folded in original brown printed envelopes. 14 maps of the 25-map series published between 1966 and 1971, including the complete set of the first 13 maps. Many photomaps based on aerial reconaissance and photomosaics, showing geological or geochemical information. Some sheets include location diagrams, text, notes, cross sections, charts, index map, and insets. The mapped resources also concern ancient gold mines. Among the credited cartographers are some Arabian scientists, but mainly Americans: James Mytton, Robert F. Johnson, Virgil A. Trent, C. W. Smith, J. Kouther, M. Q. Asad, Gerrit Eijkelboom, Mohammed Gendi, Bernard Henry, Xavier Leca, Mohammed Shanti, Phillippe Delange, and Jean Pflaum. Abdullah O. Ankary contributed to the text of several maps, and much of the geology is based on work done in the 1950s and early 1960s by Glen F. Brown, one of the pioneers of the partnership between the U.S. Geological Survey and the Saudi government which began in the 1940s, spanned the next five decades and played such an important role in the development of the kingdom. Also, the map and envelope design closely match that of the geological maps of Saudi Arabia issued by the USGS since the 1950s. - Perfectly preserved.

Layout by Yusaku Kamehura. Text in Japanese and English . 4to. pp. 224. . Senza custodia, ma ottima copia (Without original white card slip-case, otherwise fine). Prima edizione (First edition). "Like the earlier work the book is split into sections, seven of them this time, revealing various aspects of Chicago and the two major photographic preoccupations of Ishimoto at the time - the formal urban landscape and the street portrait. If the portraits and street-life images win out, it is because people are more interesting then things, and the photographer himself is more challenged by people, less prone to exercising merely formal concerns, though no Ishimoto image is ever less than elegant" (Parr, Badger, The Photobook: A History volume I - p. 289)\
