        Letter to William Burroughs from Terry Southern (One page typescript letter)

      N.p.: N.p., 1969. Single page, carbon typescript (the original letter presumably sent to Burroughs, this copy from Southern's estate), single spaced, with several typeovers. A friendly, sassy letter to Burroughs, beginning with an expression of Southern's great anticipation of a visit from Burroughs: "Buzz along the rialto has it that a certain grand guy W.S. Burroughs may be jetting Appleward anon. I certainly hope so, and hasten to assure that your quarters are being maintained in a state of round-the-clock readiness--with the E-meter fully serviced, tuned to needle-point precision, and porno flicks dusted and ready to roll! Meanwhile, I trust this finds you in top form and fettle, grooving there in Old Smoke." The letter goes on to speak extensively of Ed Koch's recent election win, focusing on what would appear to be a dense philosophical obsession TS has with the politician. Office stock, rectos only, 8.5 x 11 inches. Near Fine.

To illustrate his autobiographical poetry, the artist selected an engraving from 1939 and etchings finished between 1966 and 1967.

        Silence

      Vermont and Tokyo: Sophia University, 1969. Copyright date 1969, first printing 1969. Soon to Be Made into a Major Motion Picture. ?Tokyo/Rutland. 1969. Sophia University/Tuttle. 1st American Printing. Very Good In Dustjacket W/Some Tears & Wear. hardcover. Translated from the Japanese by William Johnston. keywords: Literature Translated Japan Asia. inventory # 6563. FROM THE PUBLISHER - SILENCE , is a 1966 novel of historical fiction by Japanese author Shusaku Endo. It is the story of a Jesuit missionary sent to seventeenth century Japan, who endured persecution in the time of Kakure Kirishitan (?Hidden Christians?) that followed the defeat of the Shimabara Rebellion. The recipient of the 1966 Tanizaki Prize, it has been called ?Endo?s supreme achievement? and ?one of the twentieth century?s finest novels?. Written partly in the form of a letter by its central character, the theme of a silent God who accompanies a believer in adversity was greatly influenced by the Catholic Endo's experience of religious discrimination in Japan, racism in France and debilitating tuberculosis. Shusaku Endo was a renowned 20th century Japanese author who wrote from the unusual perspective of being both Japanese and Catholic. (The population of Christians in Japan is less than 1%.) Together with Junnosuke Yoshiyuki, Shotaro Yasuoka, Junzo Shono, Hiroyuki Agawa, Ayako Sono, and Shumon Miura, Endo is categorized as one of the ?Third Generation,? the third major group of writers who appeared after the Second World War. His books reflect many of his childhood experiences. These include the stigma of being an outsider, the experience of being a foreigner, the life of a hospital patient, and the struggle with tuberculosis. However, his books mainly deal with the moral fabric of life. His Catholic faith can be seen at some level in all of his books, and it is often a central feature. ? Very Good In Dustjacket W/Some light crease and edge wear, Dust jacket now in a clear cover. A solid rare and collectible book.. 1st Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

        SIGNED WOODSTOCK PROGRAM with Three Unpublished Photographs. Three Days of Peace and Music, Woodstock Music and Art Fair

      Woodstock. August 1969. An original 1969 Woodstock program, Signed by Jimi Hendrix on his biography page and including three original and unpublished photographs, one showing Jimi with this program in hand. The program is in very good condition. The Hendrix page was removed by the recipient shortly after signing, ?"embellished?" with newspaper cuttings and framed. The page has now been removed from the frame and is laid back into the program. The three original photographs show Jimi sitting in his car with this program, driving off in the car, and a view of Woodstock. All three photos have a little chipping, scuffing and short closed tears, and one (view of Woodstock) with the corner torn off. Hendrix was the headlining act of the festival and was booked to take the stage at midnight on Sunday August 17th playing to the half a million or so people that covered the hillside. However, due to massive overruns it wasn't until 9am the following morning that Hendrix finally got on stage by which point only 35,000 or so people remained. An exceptional item bringing together the world's greatest guitarist at the world's most famous music festival where, arguably, he played his greatest gig. With cast iron provenance, original photographs and a statement from the recipient. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request.

        A SIGNIFICANT PHOTOGRAPH INSCRIBED & SIGNED BY DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH. A most famous photograph of this important gathering of Russian artists, each of whom contributed to the play "The Bedbug", inscribed and signed by the great modern Russian composer

      Moscow, 1969.. 1969.. Very good. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY SHOSTAKOVICH - sc A 6-1/2 inch high by 9-1/4 inch wide black & white gelatin silver photograph distributed by the photographic agency of H. Roger Viollet, with their stamp on the verso. This famous image from September 19, 1929, depicts the young bespectacled Shostakovich seated at the piano holding up a sheet of the music for the Bedbug so that Meyerhold, the director of the play who is seated next to the composer with a cigarette in hand, can look at the page. Standing behind the two, a cigarette dangling from his mouth, is the poet and author of the play Vladimir Mayakovsky with the great painter and photographer Alexander Rodchenko who designed the sets for the production, standing at the viewer's right. Shostakovich has inscribed the photograph at the top left in Russian with words equivalent to "Best Wishes". The inscription and signature, penned in blue ink, is signed "D. Shostakovich" and dated "25 I 1969 Mokba". The photographic agent's credits, stamped on the verso, state "H.Roger Viollet / 6, Rue de Seine, Paris - 6e / Tel. ODE. 81-10 / Attention Obligatoire / Collection Viollet". This particular signed photograph is from the collection of the autograph collector and scholar Ray Rawlins, who wrote numerous books on the subject, with his discreet oval collector's mark stamped at the bottom right of the verso, illustrated with a device of an arm holding an arrow and the words "Rawlins Collection: Historical Docs and ALS". The photo is further annotated in pencil on the verso: "RV 40877 / Theatre Meyerhold / le compositeur, Chostakovitch / qui a compose la musique de la Punaise / assis a ses cote Meyerhold / debout de gauche a droite: / le poete Maiakisky, auteur de la Punaise / et l'artiste Rodchenko qui s'occupe des decors pour 'la Punaise'." There are light brownish diagonal stains to the lower left of the verso with some minor creasing. The photograph is mounted into a mat with document tape from the top corners of the verso. The image itself has but some light spotting to the image and minor soiling to the left edge, likely due to the overlap of the mat. There is some very minor fading and some very few spots most likely the result of the developing process. A rare and very significant signed photograph.Provenance: From the collection of Ray Rawlins, author of "The Stein and Day Book of World Autographs". Along with Meyerhold, Mayakovsky and Rodchenko, Shostakovich embraced the Soviet Revolution which, by its nature, seemed to promise to liberate the arts from the constraints of staid conservative tradition. And though the promise seemed to hold true at first, allowing great creativity and experimentation, the artists were to find themselves criticized by those in power with little tolerance for those whose work even hinted at opposition. Shostakovich found himself alternately being hailed as a hero of Soviet music, denounced as a formalist and attacked by Pravda. Such denunciation in Stalinist Russia could well lead to arrest. Indeed many of Shostakovich's friends and family were arrested or executed during the years of terror. In the early period from 1921 to 1927, the Bolshevik's experimentation with a New Economic Policy allowing some limited private enterprise resulted in considerable freedom and the arts flourished. Even criticism of the NEP and government policy was tolerated to some degree. But the line was always a fine one and by 1927 Stalin tightened his grip on the economy and the arts. It was in the period following 1928, the year Stalin buried the NEP, that the futurist poet Mayakovsky wrote his play "Klop" [The Bedbug] for Meyerhold. It was an ambiguous satire of Soviet society. Shostakovich composed the incidental music for the play, his Opus 19.

With the dust jacket. 24 tipped-in plates with tissue guards. Bookseller's ticket to front flap of dust jacket. Otherwise a fine copy. First facsimile edition. Originally published in six fascicles between 1844 and 1846, Talbot's The Pencil of Nature outlines his investigations into the first practical negative-positive photographic process, the calotype process, and was intended to illustrate the versatility and potential of the this approach. However, due to the difficulties of large-scale photographic publishing at the time, "The Pencil of Nature, a bold effort ahead of its time that had drawn praise from contemporary critics, was discontinued after twenty-four prints in six fascicles had been issued".
