        The Edible Woman. [Association Copy].

      Toronto / Montreal, McClelland and Stewart Limited, 1969.. First Edition. 8°. 281 pages. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in protective Mylar. Very good + condition with only minor signs of external wear. The jacket with some stronger signs of wear, tears and some fraying. A most wonderful association copy of Atwoods first Novel, inscribed by Margaret Atwood to her professor Jerry Buckley on the titlepage: "For J.E.H. Buckley with best wishes, Peggy Atwood - 1969". Included is also a stunning manuscript letter which Margaret Atwood sent to Jerry Buckley and in which she announces the publication of this book. She continues by talking about her thesis to Jerry and we get a glimpse of her strategy with tackling her thesis. Ever more interesting is her question: "I doubt that my thesis will turn into a book - I'm developing a phobia about publishers. Are they all as chaotic as McClelland and Stewart, I wonder ?".. "Every American Thanksgiving, Jerry and Elizabeth Buckley would invite at least one of Terry's graduate students to their home in Belmont, Massachusetts., for the customary turkey dinner. (In the 1960s, the graduate student was Margaret ATWOOD; in the '70s, David STAINES.)" [Source: https://www.ogs.on.ca/ogspi/2003/o2003atw.htm]

Original illustrated wrappers. Housed together in an orange cloth slipcase and chemise. Some very slight rubbing to the extremities, and minor damp stains to the gutters, of the Woodstock programme but nonetheless an especially excellent example; the Monterey programme is rubbed at the extremities with very minor splits starting at the joint ends, but also still in excellent condition. First printings of both programmes, a wonderful pairing memorialising two highly seminal festivals that defined an era: Monterey, which ushered in the "Summer of Love" in 1967, and saw the first major American appearances by Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Ravi Shankar, Janis Joplin and Otis Redding; and Woodstock, one of the largest and most significant music festivals of all time, now symbolic for having been the apotheosis of the 60s generation.

Where is your Vortex? London: The Egoist Ltd, 1919. PROVENANCE: The estate of R.B. Kitaj, via Peter Howard, Serendipity Books, with all bearing his price coding ("LEM") and most additionally annotated "In Our Time." Inspired by Walter Benjamin's classic 1931 essay "Unpacking My Library," acclaimed British artist Kitaj set out in 1969 (Benjamin's essay had been published in English for the first time just the year before) to photograph a selection of book covers from his library for a portfolio of color screen-prints entitled IN OUR TIME: Covers For A Small Library After the Life for the Most Part. The completed portfolio contained 50 covers and was issued in 1969 in a signed edition of 150 copies by Marlborough AG Schellenberg. Here offered are 12 of the actual books from Kitaj's library used in creating this work. The books offer a fascinating opportunity to investigate questions of representation and materiality, and embody something of the physical life they have endured over the 40+ years since they were last documented. Furthermore, at least several provide a glimpse at Kitaj's working methods for this series. One title (PLAGUE) shows evidence of having been touched up in the print. In another (MENSCHEN DER ZEIT), the artist completely altered the cover photograph, substituting an image of German actor Paul Wegener later in the same book for the original cover image. The page with Wegener has also been flagged with a scrap bookmark and a penned line appears on that page. Books were an enormous influence on Kitaj's art. His library in many ways was his studio ("For me, books are what trees are for the landscape painter") and in IN OUR TIME "Kitaj transcends the idea of the physicality of the book. By enlarging the covers he gives the chosen volumes a monumental presence, reinforcing the subjects within the covers with a new and powerful resonance" (Ramkalawon, KITAJ PRINTS: A Catalogue Raisonné). As The Independent (London) said in their 2007 obituary: "[Kitaj's] love of books connects inextricably with his sense of the importance of the transmission of knowledge and thought, through time, and with his awareness of the fragility of such transmission in any era of persecution." As far as we are aware, any remaining original books used by Kitaj for this series have either been anonymously dispersed or perished.

The letters make reference to "The Eccentrics" a project that Fuller had written a screenplay for and very nearly made. Fuller notes that Janet Leigh had replaced Jennifer Jones as the current lead for the film, and also makes mention of its original title, "The Mistress." The subsequent letter from Fuller addresses the legal trouble that would eventually shut down any possibility of the film being made.Lisa Dombrowski notes: ".in the late 1960s Fuller wrote "The Eccentrics," a psychedelic melodrama set in a coastal hippie encampment and featuring interlocking romantic triangles, jealousy, betrayal, and multiple murders. . The story concerns Sherry MacMasters, an untraditional Nobel Prize-winning author who is working on a book entitled 'Imagination is the Mistress of Riot.' For inspiration, MacMasters surrounds herself with artistic, unwashed youth who view her as a creative guru. . By the end of the picture.she has difficulty distinguishing the real world from her dream world. Two letters: 8.5 x 11 inches. Postcard: 5 x 7 inches (13 x 18 cm). Near Fine. [Book ID 134597].

        I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS

      New York:: Random House. (1969). First edition of the author's first book. INSCRIBED by Angelou on the half-title page, "Cuthbert . . . Joy! Maya Angleou 5/2007 No. Carolina." Angelou was challenged by her friend, author James Baldwin, and her editor, Robert Loomis, to write an autobiography that was also a piece of literature. And that she did. This, her first volume of autobiography, illustrates how strength of character can help one overcome racism and trauma. The book begins when three-year-old Maya and her older brother are sent to Stamps, Arkansas, to live with their grandmother and ends when Maya becomes a mother at the age of 16. In the course of Caged Bird, Maya transforms from a victim of racism with an inferiority complex into a self-possessed, dignified young woman capable of responding to prejudice. A very fine copy in black cloth with gilt and red stamping quite bright and red top stain still vibrant; in a a fine dust jacket with only the barest edge wear and very mild creasing to the front flap (not price-clipped, as usually seen).

        Kamaitachi

      Tokyo: Gendaishichosha, 1969. Very close to fine in an almost near fine example of the publisher's fragile acetate jacket, lightly rubbed, with a chip at the spine heel and a shallow chip at the bottom edge of the rear panel; housed in the original slipcase, bright, with a small crease to the laminate along the bottom of the rear panel and a few insignificant dents. Quite a pleasing copy of one of the true highspots of 20th century Japanese photographic literature.. First Edition. Folio. Number 127 of 1000 press-numbered copies. Stamped and SIGNED by Hosoe in calligraphic ink. A book of breathtaking design and poetic conception: each large image concealed within a blue gatefold that must be carefully opened before viewing. Hosoe traveled to the northern province of Tohoku to shoot this book with dancer Tatsumi Hijikata. (As a boy, Hosoe had been evacuated to the region from war torn Tokyo.) The resulting collaboration is a visual choreography transcending the inherent limitations of art in book form. (Parr / Badger, v1, 284-285; Open Book 248-249; Auer 497).
