        50 Jahre Madaus: Eine aufgeschlossene Firma

      Dr. Maudhaus & Co, Köln am Rhein 1969 - 4to. Unpaginated (72pp. & 8pp. text booklet). Pictorial wraps in sturdy original paper-covered, printed cardboard slipcase. Wraps and slipcase protected by modern mylar. Fabulously designed book by the German pharmaceutical company Madaus, published to commemorate their 50th anniversary. Profusely illustrated with over 100 b/w reproductions of photographs (many in photomontage) by Barbara Schulten, 4 color illustrations, and a total of 12 pop-up inserts, tipped-in ephemera, pull-out tabs, and pop-up figures. Includes 16 1/2" x 22" color fold-out poster of an 1930's advertisement. One fold-out illustrated with a mouse in a science lab, when opened an accordion-style pop-up creates the noise of a shrieking mouse. 8 page booklet "Haussegen! Ein Kochbuch von Frau Pastor Madaus", as well as reader-reply card laid-in, as issued. The 'Pop Art' layout and design of the work shows similarities to Andy Warhol's 1967's 'Index Book'.

Not only a cornucopia of design and layout ideas, it features several pop-up pages in the style of a children's book. The result combines a high purpose with a sense of fun, as if the customers of Madaus - institutions used to dealing with the question of man's mortality - could benefit from an injection of laughter into the serious business of medical research." (Parr & Badger II: 196). Slipcase with slight rubbing on head and tail of spine and edges. Tiny closed tear on top right corner of slipcase. Text in German. Tight copy in very good condition. Complete with all pop-ups, as issued. One of the best designed and most innovative publications of company photobooks. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        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. Complete with shipping carton. Etching printed in sepia, green and black, plates in colour. 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).

        Neil Armstrong contemporaneously signs a quote of his first words on the moon "HOUSTON, TRANQUILITY BASE HERE. THE EAGLE HAS LANDED"

      n.p., n.d.. 8.5" x11". "Manuscript Quotation Signed ""Neil Armstrong,"" half page, 8.5"" x 11"". In full, ""Neil Armstrong / 'HOUSTON, TRANQUILITY BASE HERE. THE EAGLE HAS LANDED.'"" On watermarked parchment linen paper. Quotation marks in darker ink. Rectangular 7"" x 5"" toning from prior matting. This is undoubtedly an item that dates from the period of Apollo 11. The fact that the signature is in the same brown ink as that of the quotation and that Neil has centered his signature above the quote (on a sheet this size almost definitely he would have placed his signature elsewhere if it were blank) assures us that he knew what he was signing.At 4:18 pm EDT, July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong radioed ""Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed."" These were the first words from the Apollo 11 Lunar Module Eagle after he guided the craft to a landing on the Moon . At 10:56 pm EDT, Armstrong, ready to plant the first human foot on another world, with more than half a billion people watching on television, climbs down the ladder and proclaims: ""That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."" Accompanied by two unsigned 10¢ ""First Man on the Moon"" 1969 first day covers and an unsigned copy of a 7"" x 5"" color photograph, taken by Neil Armstrong, of Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin beside the deployed United States flag during an Apollo 11 Extravehicular Activity (EVA) on the lunar surface."

        Brigade Tagebuch, Außenstelle Wickendorf

      Betriebsberufsschule des Sozialistischen Handels, Wickendorf, Schwerin 1969 - Small Folio. 78 cardboard plates. Original bolted beige half cloth over decorative orange paper-covered boards with white lettering and circular montage glued to front cover. One of a kind diary, spanning the years 1966 to 1969, kept by the "Brigade" (smallest organized working group in a firm, factory, production cooperative or administration) in the field office Schwerin-Wickendorf of the socialistic trade school Schwerin, today's capitol of the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Extraordinary collection of lithographs, paintings, drawings, photography, montages, calligraphy and handwritten, respectively typed reports and testimonies, beautifully designed by the apprentices of a commercial art Brigade under the direction of comrade Wieschendorf. The conduct within a Brigade was strictly organized and competitive in order to accomplish the goal of winning the first prize and honorary title of "Collective of Socialist Work" on the national stage. The competition among Brigades was organized within the so-called Kombinat, a conglomerate of companies and/or production cooperatives (VEBs / companies owned by the people) with similar production profiles. This unique copy of the Wickendorf Brigade was started in 1966 in honor of the 20th anniversary of the founding of the SED (Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands), the Socialist Party of Germany pledging to work, learn and live in a socialistic fashion within the collective of apprentices of commercial art. The Mission Statement describes in detail the course projected to improve the training to become a competent commercial artist. Pasted to the next heavy card stock plate is a color lithograph of the trade school itself followed by two typed pages of "New Educational Methods." Five original works of the drawing class, depicting travel advertising for Wickendorf, are featured then, all receiving an A (1) from the instructors, handwritten into the margins with teacher's initials. The works graded A are a mixed media drawing by Winkler, watercolor and oil, an elaborate two page (folded) heavy card stock ad with beautiful handwritten text intricate pen drawings slipped into a cut envelope pasted to the page, a watercolor drawing by Günter Schneider, an extraordinary watercolor depicting the Wickendorf city scape with a beautifully executed "prism sky" by G. Thiem, and a color crayon drawing by Cornelia Strauss. Reports on the restoration of the school, community work, field trips and the cooperation with the Red Cross are described and beautifully illustrated with b/w photographs and professional designs. Noteworthy here a photomontage utilizing a West-Germany wine advertisement. "Hands off Cuba" and a protest against the US Vietnam politics follow and are described and illustrated. Contains a special section in honor of the VII. SED Convention including official documents of recognition by party officials. The following is a diary describing the noteworthy events and activities in the course of the three years illustrated with color and b/w photomontages, including references to events and exams prior to 1966. The diary closed with a section of collages of works "not suitable for the diary" which include surprising borderline works considering the strictly socialistic environment. The descriptive text in this Brigade Diary provides an extraordinarily accurate impression of everyday life in the GDR on one hand and the latitude extended by party officials to this particular, special Brigade. Text in German. Light wear along edges of covers with light sunning and a small hole at the bottom of cloth binding at front cover. Some remnants of external newsprint glued to lower margin of back cover. Binding in overall good+, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Estate [Signed Association Copy]

      Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 1969, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fine, Dust Jacket Condition: very good +, First editionA Very Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (quite light fading to the cloth extremities, some mild surface scratching to the front board), in a Very Good + dust jacket (spine mildly sunned and lightly soiled, some small spots to the rear flap fold, light foxing to the verso/inside), CONTEMPORARILY SIGNED, INSCRIBED, AND DATED BY ISAAC B. SINGER on the half-title as follows: "To David McCullough / with friendship and / greetings // Isaac B. Singer // Nov 26 1969"; Isaac Bashevis Singer's seventh novel, a sequel to "The Manor", both of which novels portray what Singer describes as "the epoch between the Polish insurrection of 1863 and the end of the nineteenth century" showing the growth of Jews' important role in Poland's industry, commerce, and arts and sciences. The dust jacket's rear panel includes a review by David McCullough praising "The Manor", so Singer's provision of this copy to McCullough was highly appropriate. Isaac Bashevis Singer won the 1978 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his impassioned narrative art which, with roots in a Polish-Jewish cultural tradition, brings universal human conditions to life". Noting "The Estate" in his speech presenting the Prize to Singer, Professor Lars Gyllensten of the Swedish Academy stated: "The clash between tradition and renewal, between other-worldliness and pious mysticism on the one hand and free thought, doubt and nihilism on the other, is an essential theme in Singer's short stories and novels. Among many other themes, it is dealt with in Singer's big family chronicles - the novels The Family Moskat, The Manor and The Estate, from the 1950s and 1960s. These extensive epic works depict how old Jewish families are broken up by the new age and its demands and how they are split, socially and humanly. The author's apparently inexhaustible psychological fantasy and insight have created a microcosm, or rather a well-populated micro-chaos, out of independent and graphically convincing figures."The inscribee, a multiple Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award Winner, and a recipient of the National Medal of Freedom, David McCullough (author of "The Path Between the Seas", 1977, "Truman", 1992; "John Adams", 2001; and others) is one of America's most notable men of letters. An about altogether Fine copy OF THIS NOTABLE BOOK RESPONSIBLE IN PART FOR SINGER'S WINNING THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE, AND HAVING A WONDERFUL PROVENANCE AND ASSOCIATION IN BEING CONTEMPORARILY INSCRIBED, SIGNED, AND DATED BY ISAAC B. SINGER TO PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR DAVID MCCULLOUGH. A REMARKABLE COPY JOINING TWO MODERN LITERARY GIANTS AND CONTEMPORARILY INSCRIBED, SIGNED, AND DATED BY NOBEL PRIZE-WINNER ISAAC BASHEVIS SINGER.

A near fine copy, with soft vertical fold and annotations to rear from original owner listing the The Doors' opening songs that evening 'Back Door Man / Break on Through / Soul Kitchen.' The third of four self-published poetry titles by Jim Morrison [1943-1971], after 'The Lords: Notes on Vision' (April 1969), 'The New Creatures' (April 1969), and followed by 'An American Prayer' (1970), and is his only work that was devoted to a single poem. The edition comprised 'vermutlich 500' copies (Gerstenmeyer), which were handed out at the two performances The Doors gave at the Aquarius Theatre, Hollywood (both 21st July 1969). By one account the theatre floor was littered with these leaflets after the show (Humphreys), so most would have been swept up and thrown out with the garbage; in fact the present copy only escaped as it's recipient tossed it in her handbag instead of the floor. Extremely scarce thus. 'Brian Jones' is a chilling meditation on the recent death of Lewis Brian Hopkin-Jones (Brian Jones) [1942-1969], founder and deposed leader of the Rolling Stones' and the 'first martyr of rock and roll', who, two weeks earlier, had been found dead in his swimming pool at Cotchford Farm, Sussex, former home of A.A.Milne. The circumstances of his death remain one of rock's greatest mysteries. Two years later, aged 27 (the same age as Jones lived to), Morrison himself would become an infamous rock'n'roll fatality. Heinz Gerstenmeyer; The Doors [No.4], Kerry Humphreys; The Doors Collector Magazine 'most fans trashed their gift without even reading it... many who attended confirm that these sheets littered the floor and filled almost every trash bin'. PROVENANCE; Originally the property of Michelle Straubing, attendee and journalist for 'Creem' music magazine.

        The Estate [Signed Association Copy]

      New York: Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 1969. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/very good +. A Very Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (quite light fading to the cloth extremities, some mild surface scratching to the front board), in a Very Good + dust jacket (spine mildly sunned and lightly soiled, some small spots to the rear flap fold, light foxing to the verso/inside), CONTEMPORARILY SIGNED, INSCRIBED, AND DATED BY ISAAC B. SINGER on the half-title as follows: "To David McCullough / with friendship and / greetings // Isaac B. Singer // Nov 26 1969"; Isaac Bashevis Singer's seventh novel, a sequel to "The Manor", both of which novels portray what Singer describes as "the epoch between the Polish insurrection of 1863 and the end of the nineteenth century" showing the growth of Jews' important role in Poland's industry, commerce, and arts and sciences. The dust jacket's rear panel includes a review by David McCullough praising "The Manor", so Singer's provision of this copy to McCullough was highly appropriate. Isaac Bashevis Singer won the 1978 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his impassioned narrative art which, with roots in a Polish-Jewish cultural tradition, brings universal human conditions to life". Noting "The Estate" in his speech presenting the Prize to Singer, Professor Lars Gyllensten of the Swedish Academy stated: "The clash between tradition and renewal, between other-worldliness and pious mysticism on the one hand and free thought, doubt and nihilism on the other, is an essential theme in Singer's short stories and novels. Among many other themes, it is dealt with in Singer's big family chronicles - the novels The Family Moskat, The Manor and The Estate, from the 1950s and 1960s. These extensive epic works depict how old Jewish families are broken up by the new age and its demands and how they are split, socially and humanly. The author's apparently inexhaustible psychological fantasy and insight have created a microcosm, or rather a well-populated micro-chaos, out of independent and graphically convincing figures." The inscribee, a multiple Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award Winner, and a recipient of the National Medal of Freedom, David McCullough (author of "The Path Between the Seas", 1977, "Truman", 1992; "John Adams", 2001; and others) is one of America's most notable men of letters.

        Three Typed Letters, Signed, from Rev. Oscar Huber to Time Magazine Correspondent Hugh Sidey, and Two Typed Letters, Signed, from Sidey to Huber, Regarding the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy

      St. Louis, Mo., and Washington, D.C., 1969. [7]pp. total on quarto sheets. 4to. Fine. In a black and grey half morocco and cloth folding case, spine gilt. [7]pp. total on quarto sheets. 4to. "HE'S DEAD ALL RIGHT." An exceptional group of correspondence between Reverend Oscar L. Huber, the Priest who administered Kennedy's last rights after his assassination and is best known for allegedly leaking the news of JFK's death before there was an official announcement, and Hugh Sidey, the journalist for Time Magazine who reported that the Reverend declared "He's dead, all right." Though Huber struggled with the negative attention which came from being labeled disloyal to the United States Government for having gone against a request by the Secret Service to be discrete, these letters are the first time that Rev. Huber confronts his accuser, some six years later. ?By this time he had already published his own book entitled Last Moments With President Kennedy (1968) in which he vehemently denies leaking any information in the moments following the President's death. The catalyst for this exchange is the publication of several books on the Kennedy assassination which focused on his role in the Kennedy assassination. Quoting in part, he writes:"I am writing this letter after much deliberation. Shortly before Mr. Manchester's book, THE DEATH OF A PRESIDENT, came into the hands of the public, an article appeared in the February 7, 1967 issue of LOOK in which Mr. Manchester stated that you asked me if the President was dead, and I took a deep breath and said: "He's dead all right." Mr. Sidey, I did not tell you, or any other reporter, or any group of reporters the President was dead. May I ask you this question? Were you really at Parkland Hospital on the day of the assassination? If so, perhaps you did ask a Priest if the President was dead, and it is possible that he gave you the above answer -but I assure you if you did ask me the question I DID NOT tell you the President was dead."This begins a polite but heated exchange between the two men over the course of five letters. Sidey defends himself as a reporter, stating firmly (quoting in part):"We did not manufacture that reply. It is recorded for all posterity on the records of the broadcasters and wire services of that day. It had to come from somewhere?Further, I don't find it unnatural or in any way unfortunate that you said that. It was, in fact, to me, a very essential truth that needed saying just then."For all their heated debate, these two men end the correspondence on a surprisingly congenial note. From Sidey:"I think that the world is big enough for us to live with our memories. Neither of us, I suspect, is entirely accurate and neither of us has deliberately done anything to injure anyone else.  History is filled with such inconsistencies as ours and having been in the business of recording it day to day I can claim no infallibility nor can I grant it to any other human. You performed a very great service to a great man, his family and his country in a most critical time. The details are almost  irrelevant to that. I hope that my account has not really caused you too much embarrassment and I further hope you won't let it concern you much in the future."And Rev. Huber:"I am deeply impressed with your letter of May 13th. In my humble estimation it is a letter that only a gentleman would write. Never did I think you deliberately wrote those things which I made a sincere effort to clarify without giving offense to you. I assure you I hold nothing against you and that I would deem it a pleasure to meet you some day."These letters provide a captivating insight into what took place on the day of Kennedy's assassination, parts of which will always remain a mystery.
