This is the striking Pop Art tableware that Roy Lichtenstein produced at the height of his powers for the groovy sixties shop, On First.

A brand new, most handsome example of this charming ephemeral multiple - as bright and fresh as the day it was printed - beautifully presented in a 12 x 12 x 4" archival Artservices sixties-style Plexiglas display box / frame that can be hung on a wall or laid flat on a table. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        Archive of letters, postcards, photographs, and notes from Crosby to songwriter Jimmy Van Heusen

      v.p., chiefly Hollywood and Palm Desert, California 1969 - Includes 3 page Autograph Manuscript of Crosby's biographical notes for Rotary Club luncheon honoring Van Heusen and material relating to the luncheon, 1 page Autograph lyrics, 3 Typed Letters Signed ("Bing") to Van Heusen, Western Union telegram, 2 Autograph Postcards Signed ("Bing"), 3 photographs of Crosby, Bob Hope and others, and other material, detailed below, including copy of 2 page Typed Letter from Van Heusen to Crosby detailing wild night out with Sinatra and 1 page fragment of Typed Letter from Crosby congratulating Van Heusen on his marriage. Various formats. On Friendship, Clam Bakes, Sinatra, and Boozin'. Composer Jimmy Van Heusen (1913-1990) won four Academy Awards and one Emmy in a long career that included such hits as "High Hopes" and "Love and Marriage." Teamed with lyricists Sammy Cahn and Johnny Burke, Van Heusen wrote more than 70 songs performed by Sinatra or Crosby. Van Heusen also composed the title song to THE BING CROSBY SHOW, and worked with Crosby in HIGH TIME, ROAD TO MOROCCO and ROAD TO HONG KONG. As this correspondence demonstrates, Crosby and Van Heusen remained close over many decades of working together.1. 3 pg. MS on spiral-bound ruled notepaper: Crosby's handwritten notes for a speech given at a Rotary Club luncheon honoring Van Heusen, May 2, 1958. Crosby details Van Heusen's many achievements and awards, and supplies some personal commentary: "A visit to his home is an experience. It's a combination of the early days of the Wild West and the last days of Pompeii." And, "His best friends [are] Sinatra and Crosby. One as a stimulant, the other a depressant. We won't tell you which is which." 2. 1 pg. carbon: Van Heusen's Rotary Club luncheon acceptance speech, in which he excuses his voice: "If you think I speak badly . .Wait until you hear me sing . "3. 1 pg. TN on Van Heusen stationery: "Parody sung at the Rotary Club Luncheon." Includes such lines as "May I say Van Heusen enjoys his noontime boozin'." And concludes, "I'm glad Crosby made me move here / my thanks I must convey / The Rotary Club's a killer / And the luncheon's been a thriller / All the way, all the way"4. 1 pg. AN in blue pen on Crosby stationery: Lyrics, in Crosby's hand, titled "Added Patter." Humorous lines about drinking and clam digging: "We burrow for the bivalve down in Plumper Bay / Scratch and Claw and sift the silt the Kwatna way / At Nimkish we don't seek fish but the juicy clam / If all we get is empty shells - who gives a damn". With some pencil corrections and notes. Very likely lyrics to the "official song" mentioned in item 6 below.5. 1 pg. TLS (April 26, 1957) on Crosby stationery with 1 pg. TL draft (April 19, 1957) on Capitol Records stationery with Crosby's corrections in pencil: Crosby thanks Van Heusen for playing his latest, "Seven Nights a Week" and "Man on Fire," and adds this bittersweet note: "In the waning years of what has been an enormously lucky and gratifying career it's nice to know I can still capture some audience interest." The draft is a form letter, most likely written by a secretary at Capitol Records. Crosby cuts most of the letter's generic sentiments and fills the bottom margin with his pencilled substitutions. "Seven Nights a Week" was Crosby's attempt to appeal to a younger, rock-and-roll audience.6. 1 pg. TLS (December 12, 1960) on Crosby stationery: letter concerning "the official Clam organization," a list of members ("There's you and I, Crowley and Morrow, Fiorini and Rosenberg, Harris and Collier, Sindeman, and Max Bell.") and progress on the club's "official song." Undoubtedly a reference to the "Crosby Clambake" held at Pebble Beach, the first pro-am golf tournament.7. 1 pg. TLS (January 26, 1967) on Crosby stationery: Crosby acknowledges receipt of "the cast album," possibly to Van Heusen's musical WALKING HAPPY.8. 1 pg. Western Union telegram (December 7, 1953): Crosby informs Van Heusen that he is leaving his house, "Your place is free now in case of any of your pals o [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Red Tent (Working script for the 1969 film, with original reference photograph)

      Soviet Union: Mosfilm, 1969. Working post-production script for the 1969 film. Combination of typescript and carbon typescript, with notations in red holograph ink throughout. Laid in is a vintage single weight borderless reference photograph from the film. An unusual internal script from the production of the Soviet-Italian co-production that was ultimately distributed worldwide by Paramount Pictures. Not a post-production script in the typical sense, meaning a script that reflects the finished, edited film. Rather, a script that was produced in the midst of editing, with numerous notations regarding editing changes that still need to be made. The text is in English, but the wrapper is Italian, meaning that it was likely issued by the Italian arm of the production. The commander of a failed 1928 Arctic airship expedition remembers the events of the "Italia" airship flight, crash and subsequent rescue efforts. The "ghosts" of people involved in the events appear in his memories to assist him in determining his guilt in the affair. The reminiscences are mixed with the real action: the flight of the "Italia", the air rescue operation from Kings Bay airfield, the expedition of the "Krassin" ice-breaker. A sort of human touch is added by the ever beautiful C.C. playing Malmgren's girlfriend. Green studio wrappers. Noting 12 reels. Carbon typescript on onionskin stock. Very Good. Photograph 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm), some residue from an old snipe label on the verso, else Near Fine.

Undoubtedly a reference to the "Crosby Clambake" held at Pebble Beach, the first pro-am golf tournament. 7. 1 pg.

Autograph Postcard Signed (April 15, 1961): Photo postcard from San Jose, Mexico. Crosby hopes Van Heusen's trip to England was a success and gives a short update on his trip to Mexico: "Been here about a week, flying down on the Richfield DC. 3. Nice weather, but the group is sometimes a bit gay." 10. Autograph Postcard Signed (December 28, 1962): Postcard from the Hotel Camino Real, Guadalajara, Mexico. Crosby is in Mexico to buy tile and porch furniture for the house he's building in Las Cruces, or "Casa Crosby." "The house at Las Cruces is going to be quite nice ... " Ends with an obscure reference to skydiving and songwriter Sammy Cahn: "See the Slim One 'hit the silk.' Cahn's price was right." 11. 3 b/w photographs: a) Gelatin silver print (9 x 7-1/8 inch) of Crosby in hat and pipe with Bob Hope and Sammy Cahn, reviewing lyrics at Capitol Records. Docketed on rear, "NBC Photo by Gerald Smith." Likely from recording of THE ROAD TO HONG KONG (1962). b) Crosby in straw hat and pipe with wife Kathryn. c) Crosby and Cahn relaxed and smoking. 12. 1 pg. fragment of TL (December 22, 1969) on Crosby stationery: Crosby belatedly congratulates Van Heusen on his marriage to Bobbie Brock, "I wanted you to know that I'm certainly happy that two of my dearest friends are now united." Crosby jokes at his wife's expense, "Kathryn says that she wants you to write her a Broadway musical, but it should be within a three note range" and goes on to worry that he isn't working (or earning) enough. Small stain at top margin 13. 1 pg. TLS (December 28, 1964) on Kathryn Crosby stationery: Letter thanking Van Heusen for gifts given to their children, signed "Kathryn & Bing" 14. 2 page retained copy of TL (August 23, 1966) from Van Heusen to Crosby: Van Heusen is nervous about the opening of his musical WALKING HAPPY, "[it's] in rehearsal now, and the feces has hit the fan. The panic is on." Goes on to recount a riotous night in New York with Sinatra ("the Dago") and Mia Farrow: "On his way to London the Dago stopped in New York long enough for Bennett Cerf and Leland Hayward to party him and his bride at '21'." They have a run-in with the paparazzi: "Negotiating the twenty or thirty paces between the two restaurants encompassed three fights with photographers and newsmen ... Frank pushed me into the oncoming traffic when I stepped in between." Van Heusen's opinion of Farrow and Sinatra's marriage: "I was only mildly surprised by the wedding. I had rooted for Mia (whom I adore) to grab him for SO long, that I was jumping with glee when they both called from Vegas shortly after the ceremony" and his opinion of Sinatra's behavior: "As for his reforming,--I doubt he'll ever drop his dukes in the presence of the press ... As for drinking,--you and I used to spill more than he consumes,--but I look for some reduction in the drunk days in the 'September of His Years', as Sam [Cahn] and I once described the aging Dago." The letter finishes with more talk of WALKING HAPPY, and commiseration over health concerns 15. 1-page TLS (July 24, 1957): from agent George Rosenberg to Van Heusen concerning screenplay of TUNNEL OF LOVE, with copy of typed Crosby letter to Rosenberg declining to work on the film, "There are so many sequences which are just basically salacious, I don't care how innocently you do them or how wholesome the people who are involved in these sequences, they just have to be bad for me"

Additionally inscribed by Hugnet to the original purchaser, publisher Roberto Altmann. "Published in 1969 but using collages dating from many years before, an therefore essentially a modernist book - show[s] him at his best....a surreal, erotic travel tale based on the Michelin Guide...ostensibly a journal and photo-album of a trip along the Brittany coast...Hugnet's photomontages are both complex and witty....This volume could be regarded as the last great romp of a 1930s surrealist, but Hugnet reminds us that the surrealists took their play seriously. The whole pdoduction, by Henri Mercier, is of the highest quality...." Parr and Badger, I, 109.

      Macdonald, London 1951-1969 - A first edition, first printing set of Williamson's celebrated semi-autobiographical sequence of fifteen novels which explore the fortunes of one family during the first half of the twentieth century. 8vo. Original publisher’s cloth. Several top edges lightly spotted and dust marked, with just a hint of light partial browning to the endpapers of four volumes. Former owner name neatly inked to the front endpaper of one volume, and a tiny dealer plate to the front pastedown of another. A small piece of the front endpaper of a single volume ('Love and the Loveless') has been carefully clipped, presumably to remove a former owner name or inscription. An extremely crisp set in the original James Broom-Lynne-designed dust wrappers, three of which have been price clipped, and several of which exhibit a little rubbing and chafing to spine ends, although there is no significant loss to any. The spine panel lettering of a single volume is quite tanned. A very nice example of an increasingly scarce set - a Burgess Ninety-Nine. Laid-in is a short undated letter to Williamson enquiring about the availability of a number of titles. Williamson has annotated and returned the letter ("Sorry, I cannot tell you. I want some for myself, for revision, many of mine being lost, stolen, and strayed. Regret brevity harvest 8am - 10am"). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Lettres à Lou

      Gallimard, Paris 1969 - [Correspondance]. Édition originale (Éo). 1/29 premiers exemplaires sur vélin de Hollande van Gelder numérotés de 1 à 29. [27]. Préface et notes de Michel Décaudin. Photographies et documents en noir et blanc hors texte. [Peu avant de s'engager dans l'armée française, Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918) tombe amoureux de Louise de Coligny-Châtillon (1881-1963)(qui fut une des premières aviatrices françaises et l'amante puis la muse de Guillaume Apollinaire de 1914 à 1915), rencontrée à la Villa Baratier, dans les environs de Nice, en septembre 1914 et la surnomme Lou. La comtesse est divorcée et mène une vie très libre. Guillaume Apollinaire s'éprend d'elle et la courtise d'abord en vain. Puis quand sa demande d'engagement est enfin acceptée et qu'il est envoyé à Nîmes, elle finit par accepter ses avances et part le rejoindre pendant une semaine, mais elle ne lui dissimule pas son attachement pour un homme qu'elle surnommait Toutou. Rapidement, Guillaume doit partir au front. Une correspondance naît de leur relation ; au dos des lettres qu'Apollinaire envoyait au début au rythme d'une par jour ou tous les deux jours, puis de plus en plus espacées, se trouvent des poèmes qui furent rassemblés plus tard sous le titre de Ombre de mon amour puis de Poèmes à Lou. Sa déclaration d'amour, dans une lettre datée du 28 septembre 1914 commençait en ces termes : " Vous ayant dit ce matin que je vous aimais, ma voisine d'hier soir, j'éprouve maintenant moins de gêne à vous l'écrire. Je l'avais déjà senti dès ce déjeûner dans le vieux Nice où vos grands et beaux yeux de biche m'avaient tant troublé que je m'en étais allé aussi tôt que possible afin d'éviter le vertige qu'ils me donnaient. ". Mais la jeune femme ne l'aimera jamais, du moins comme il l'aurait voulu ; ils rompent en mars 1915 en se promettant de rester amis. Devenu le fiancé de Madeleine Pagès, ses lettres se firent plus rares et plus impersonnelles. La dernière, assez froide, est datée du 18 janvier 1916. Leur correspondance amoureuse, telle que rédigée par Apollinaire, représente 220 lettres et 76 poèmes, souvent incrustés dans les lettres. En 1947, Louise de Coligny-Châtillon fit publier chez l'éditeur suisse Pierre Cailler les 76 poèmes et bouts rimés extraits de la correspondance d'Apollinaire. Cet ouvrage, présenté sous le titre " Ombre de mon Amour ", titre imaginé par Apollinaire pour un futur recueil fut vivement contesté par sa veuve Jacqueline et fut réédité plus tard sous le titre " Poèmes à Lou ". L'édition en 1955 de la correspondance intégrale, toujours chez Pierre Cailler, entraîna la mise au pilon de la totalité du tirage, à l'exception de rares exemplaires hors commerce. En 1969, après le décès de toutes les personnes liées à cette histoire, Gaston Gallimard, qui avait déjà édité l'intégrale poétique d'Apollinaire dans la prestigieuse collection de la Pléiade en 1956 au prix de treize années d'efforts acharnés, publia enfin l'intégralité des " Lettres à Lou ".] [Cet ouvrage a été achevé d'imprimer sur les presses de l'Imprimerie Floch à Mayenne le 28 novembre 1969. Dépôt légal : 4e trimestre 1969. N° d'édition : 14727. Imprimé en France. (9035)] Plein chagrin vermillon, dos à quatre nerfs, couverture crème et dos conservés [Attributes: First Edition]

        Autograph Letter Signed with Illustration on a picture postcard of Family Dog Productions, Sept. 8, 1969

      Ginsberg writes to Magdalene (Leni) Sinclair regarding John Sinclair's imprisonment for marijuana use. He writes on the address side of the green and purple Family Dog postcard promoting the " Love Congress of Wonders concert, March 1969 at the Avalon Ballroom. Here, Ginsberg offers to "do what I can to publicize John's usefulness to life and the bum rap he's in...I'll send out the appeals...." He asks whether the Sinclair's phone was shut off due to non -payment of the bills then offers advise. "You should prepare weekly short news clips... Let me know what P.E.N. says...." He signs in full, "Allen Ginsberg." In pencil he adds the date and return address of Cherry Valley, NY. Above his corespondent's name, Ginsberg made a whimsical drawing in an oval shape, two wings on each side of the oval, eyes and the word, "airmail" drawn as if to be the mouth. Minor marginal tears to lower right edges. Arrested for possession of marijuana in 1969, Sinclair was given ten years in prison. The sentence was criticized by many as unduly harsh, and it galvanized a noisy protest movement led by prominent figures of the 1960s counterculture. Sinclair was eventually freed in December 1971, but he remained in litigation - his case against the government for illegal domestic surveillance was successfully pled to the US Supreme Court in United States v. U.S. District Court (1972).

        Plexus. Edizione italiana

      Edizione Dellavalle 1969 7 voll. in 8, pp. 140 ogni vol. con ill. e fotografie n. t. Tutto il pubblicato dell'edizione italiana di questa rivista legata al mondo underground e della controcultura. Di notevole interesse il fatto che il comitato di redazione fosse composto da personaggi di grande rilevanza come Fernanda Pivano, Adriano Spatola, Gianrenzo Morteo e Franco Giachino Nichot. Il direttore era il pittore e giornalista Valerio Miroglio. Tema centrale della rivista (tributaria per le copertine e molti articoli dell'edizione francese) era la liberazione sessuale vista pero' come modo per guadagmare spazi per la liberta' di opinione che l'Italia di quegli anni tentava di soffocare. Il primo numero usci' con una fascetta editoriale riportante la scritta 'si prega di non sequestrare'. Il numero pero' venne sequestrato davvero e Miroglio, nellla prefazione del secondo numero, stigmatizza come '...i questurini che sono andati a sequestrare Plexus nelle edicole hanno lasciato dietro di se' ben esposti e in vendita centinaia di migliaia di pubblicazioni maso - sado - inverto - pornografiche del gusto piu' deteriore. Essi hanno sottratto ai lettori una rivista che si ripropone un coerente programma demistificante, che ha una dichiarata ragione culturale... hanno lasciato i fumetti razzisti, le odissee tascabili del legionario ammazzarabi...'. Molti articoli e servizi fotografici sono opera di ottimi autori come Rolan Topor, il fotografo, Lucien Clergue, Yves De Saint Agnes. Nel numero 6 compare una corposa inchiesta sulla omosessualita' con scritti di Roger Peyrefitte, Michel Butor, Alberto Bevilacqua, Fausto Omodei ecc. Nello stesso numero compare anche un intervento intitolato Il bagno padronale giustamente chiamato vanity, opera probabilmente di Miroglio stesso, colpisce molti stereotipi presenti nel mercato immobiliare: La pubblicita' per la casa dice: la casa e' il biglietto da visita del vostro prestigio. E ci risiamo: arrampicatevi! Che bello un poema fatto con la pubblicita' delle societa' immobiliari. Il mutuo, le cambiali, l'ipoteca un letto tutto d'oro... Di notevole interesse anche le recensioni, sia di mostre che libri e spettacoli, in buona parte redatte da Nico Orengo e Paolo Fossati. ITA

Napoli, Arturo Berisio Editore, 1969 - 1970. 18 volumi in folio di circa 200 pp. ciascuno. Legatura in mezza pelle, dorsi a cordoni con titolo e fregi in oro. Cerniere indebolite (vedi foto). Fedele ristampa della dotta rivista storico - letteraria apparsa nel 1892 nella quale profusero largamente studi ed articoli i più insigni scrittori del tempo: Benedetto Croce, Schipa, Bartolomeo Capasso, Ceci, Bertaux, de Rinaldis, Di Giacomo, Giulio de Montemayor, Vittorio Spinazzola, Corrado Ricci, Michele Ruggiero, Lorenzo Salazar ed altri. Innumerevoli illustrazioni, disegni, incisioni dei più caratteristici monumenti del Mezzogiorno nei particolari e nell'insieme. Ritratti di artisti e di notabili, riproduzioni di rarissimi documenti. E' tutto un panorama storico del Regno di Napoli, del suo passato e delle sue opere d'arte, visto con gli occhi di B.Croce, che scelse con minuta attenzione le illustrazioni nonché i collaboratori. Rivive qui il Croce erudito come nella "Critica" si afferma il Croce filosofo. Cosicchè la raccolta di questa dotta e preziosa rivista italiana riesce documento insostituibile di Napoli capitale e delle sue vicende e più ancora dell'amore e dell'interesse che il Croce per quelle sempre ebbe. Dall'introduzione di Gino Doria: "La prima Napoli Nobilissima, sempre più ambita e ricercata, era divenuta una vera rarità bibliografica, tale da indurre l'editore Arturo Berisio a concepire ed attuare una ristampa".
