      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).

      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).

      Corvina Press, 1969, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: very good, First Hungarian EditionFull Book Title: Sentimental Journey around the Hungarian Cuisine [Signed by Miguel Angel Asturias, Pablo Neruda, Josephine Baker, Ruggiero Ricci, Kertesz Mihaly (Michael Curtiz), Auguste Piccard, Sonja Henie, Danielle Darrieux, Ferenc Molnar, J. R. Capablanca, and othersA Very Good copy of the first Hungarian edition, first printing (some toning to the board edges, a few tiny marks to the front board's bottom, two neat notes in light pencil ascribing authorship of two items in the book to Asturias), in a Very Good dust jacket (some sunning to the spine, two tiny closed edge tears, minor rubs and tiny chips), SIGNED, INSCRIBED, PLACED, AND DATED BY MIGUEL ANGEL ASTURIAS on the half-title, and SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA on a slip of paper affixed to the half-title, and FURTHER SIGNED BY renowned American expatriate performer JOSEPHINE BAKER, American Violinist RUGGIERO RICCI, Hungarian American Film Director KERTESZ MIHALY (a/k/a MICHAEL CURTIZ; a/k/a Michael Kertész), Swiss physicist, inventor, and explorer AUGUSTE PICCARD, three-time Olympic Champion Norwegian figure skater and film star SONJA HENIE, French actress and singer DANIELLE DARRIEUX -- who appeared in more than 110 films and who is considered to be one of France's greatest movie stars, Hungarian American dramatist and novelist FERENC MOLNAR, Cuban World Chess Champion J. R. CAPABLANCA (José Raúl Capablanca y Graupera), and three others that we have not yet identified, on page 61. (Sonja Henie and Josephine Baker are mentioned in the book, with Henie's last name misspelled "Hennie".) Miguel Angel Asturias won the 1967 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his vivid literary achievement, deep-rooted in the national traits and traditions of Indian peoples of Latin America", and Pablo Neruda won the 1971 Nobel Prize in Literature for "a poetry that with the action of an elemental force brings alive a continent's destiny and dreams". [Noted Hungarian American Film Director Michael Curtiz directed The Sea Wolf (1941), Casablanca (1942), Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942), Life With Father (1947), White Christmas (1954), King Creole (1958) and many other films.] The book was born of a trip through Hungary by the Nerudas and the Asturiases who were first inspired to write it upon seeing and enjoying dinner on the couples' first night in Hungary. Neruda thought that the food deserved a Poem and Asturias an Essay. The idea for the book evolved as they spent several weeks together traveling through Hungary and the Preface was provided by Hungarian Author Iván Boldizsár who, in the company of the Nerudas and Asturiases, enjoyed many of the meals that inspired the book. As Asturias placed his inscription in Paris, the prior owner presumably obtained the other signatures in that food capital as well. A notable book co-written by two winners of the Nobel Prize in Literature with the signatures of the authors to the half-title, also signed by JOSEPHINE BAKER, RUGGIERO RICCI, KERTESZ MIHALY / MICHAEL CURTIZ, AUGUSTE PICCARD, SONJA HENIE, DANIELLE DARRIEUX, FERENC MOLNAR, J. R. CAPABLANCA and others, and RARE INDEED.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      New York: Maecenas Press, Random House,, 1969. Twelve Illustrations with Original Woodcuts and an Original Etching by Salvador Dalí. Folio. Publisher's fall-down-back box of brown straight-grain quarter morocco, cloth sides, leather-and-horn ties, portfolio of letterpress and illustrations loose in brown cloth chemise. Etching printed in sepia, green and black, plates in colour. An excellent copy. First Dalí edition, the German issue, limited to 150 copies with an additional title page printed in German. Signed on the title page by Dalí. "The artist Salvador Dalí, famous for his surreal images of melting clocks and barren landscapes, at first glance might not seem to have much in common with a retiring Victorian English don who wrote children's books. But actually, Dalí and Carroll had much in common: both men were ardent explorers of dreams and the imagination, attempting in their art to show the fertile pathways to the unconscious. This artistic temperament might explain why, in his sixties, Dalí created twelve surreal illustrations - one for each chapter - for Alice in Wonderland. Because he required a rich, lush palette for his painted drawings, Dalí turned to the oldest process for reproducing photographic images for printing: heliogravure. Similar to engraving, the method is time consuming and costly. Each heliogravure is printed by hand and considered an original" (Catherine Nichols, Alice's Wonderland: a Visual Journey through Lewis Carroll's Mad, Mad World, 2014, p. 28).

      Walker and Company [1969], New York - Octavo, boards. First book in the "Pern" series. Combines the novellas "Weyr Search", Hugo winner (1968) and "Dragonrider", Nebula award winner 1968. Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 4-289. Barron (ed.): Fantasy Literature 4A-179. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket with a some light age darkening to spine and edges, this copy also shows two thin light parallel lines along upper portion of jacket, they almost appear to be part of the design of the jacket however other copies we have handled do not have these, our first thought was that it was some sort of age mark, but another distinct possibility is that this occurred during the printing process. Still quite an attractive copy. (10050) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
