        Plaza Suite

      NY: Random House. (1969). An early play by one of the most admired and successful playwrights and screenwriters of his time, who won two Tony Awards for Best Play and earned four Academy Award nominations, among numerous other awards. Plaza Suite was directed by Mike Nichols when it opened on Broadway, with George C. Scott and Maureen Stapleton starring. Nichols won a Tony Award for Best Director for his work on the play and Scott and Stapleton each received Tony nominations. Stapleton also starred in the 1971 film version, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. The film was directed by Arthur Hiller. This copy is inscribed by Simon to film director Tony Harvey: "To Tony - I hope you do it - Neil." Harvey had directed The Lion in Winter in 1968, for which he received an Oscar nomination, and Simon's inscription indicates a desire at that time for Harvey to direct the film adaptation of the play. Page edges foxed; crown cloth sunned; indent to upper rear board; about near fine in a rubbed and spine-faded dust jacket. A nice association copy, and a small but notable bit of film history. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Door Into The Dark

      London: Faber & Faber, 1969.. First Edition. Original Cloth. Near Fine. PUBLISHING DETAILS: A true first printing of Nobel Laureat Seamus Heaney's second collection, published by Faber and Faber of London in 1969. 56 pages featuring 34 poems. Size; 22 x 15 cms (9" x 6"). Weight; 230g (8 ozs). CONDITION: I would rate the book and dustjacket as near fine. The book has an owner's name written on the front free endpaper and tiny corner creases to a couple of pages near the back and the dustjacket is clipped and has a small mark on the back and minute closed tears to the foot of the spine, but otherwise they are remarkably fresh and bright. The jacket is now protected in a clear, removable sleeve. Altogether, an almost like new example of this early and collectable title from a fine poet who's star continues to rise. BOOK DESCRIPTION: This was Heaney's follow-up to his first collection, 'Death of a Naturalist' and was published in 1969 when the poet was only 30 years old. Here again, Heaney's work deals with the local - that is, his surroundings in Ireland, particularly in Northern Ireland, where he was born. Allusions to sectarian difference can be found in his poems, but these are never predominant or strident. His poetry is not often overtly political or militant, and is far more concerned with profound observations of the small details of the everyday. Despite the inherently Irish flavour of his language, Heaney is a universal poet, admired in every country and every other linguistic tradition. His influence on contemporary poetry is immense. Robert Lowell called him "the most important Irish poet since Yeats." A good many others have echoed the sentiment. His books make up two-thirds of the sales of living poets in the UK.

        C-S The Master Craftsman

      Harpers Woods, MI: The Adagio Press, 1969. Hard Cover. INTERESTING ASSOCIATION COPY WITH RELATED MATERIAL LAID IN.Ê This beautiful copy is inscribed by author John Dreyfus to noted Chicago book collector and philanthropist Samuel R. Rosenthal, "for Sam R Rosenthal after a splendid evening John Dreyfus 16 December 1978 Chicago."Ê Rosenthal and his wife, Marie-Louise, had a pre-eminent book collection that concentrated on livres d'artistes, illustrated books, and private press. This is 39 of 75 folio copies issued with one vellum leaf and one handmade paper leaf laid in from books printed at the Doves Press. There were 329 copies originally printed of this Adagio Press edition (although fewer than 180 were offered for sale), each with two Doves Press leaves: 12 withÊ both Doves Press leaves printed on vellum; 75 with one leaf on vellum and the second on handmade paper; and 242 with both leaves printed on handmade paper. This copy has an octavo vellum leaf from Goethe's "Faust," issued in 1906, and a folio double leaf on paper with Leviticus 16-22 from the famed Dove's Bible. The Adagio Press was founded in the late 1950s by Leonard Bahr, who signed the colophon.Ê In Roderick Cave's The Private Press, second edition, he cites the Bible as the most substantial title printed by the press.Ê In 1970, Strouse had sent two letters to Rosenthal, included with this copy, offering C-S The Master Craftsman. Strouse said that he would make Rosenthal's copy "a little special" by putting in a double leaf from the Bible. Two letters dated 1978 are laid in from Dreyfus to Rosenthal and his wife. These letters and the 1978 inscription indicate that he got to know Rosenthal around this time.Ê In one letter, Dreyfus expresses his appreciation for their expressions of sympathy over the tragic death of his son. There are a few handwritten additions to the text of Dreyfus's essay in this copy, which may have added when he inscribed the book, but this is conjecture. The book is hand sewn and bound in quarter vellum with Cockerell marbled paper covered boards and gilt title to spine.Ê It is printed in red and black Palatino Roman and Pascal types on handmade Tovil paper.Ê In addition to the Doves Press leaves, laid in are the prospectus, a mounted photograph of Cobden-Sanderson with Emery Walker developed from the original negative, a smaller copy of the photo, and a pamphlet issued in 1971 titled "A Letter from Stella."Ê This pamphlet reprints the text of the last letter written by Cobden-Sanderson to his daughter, Stella, a few hours before he died, with an introduction by Strouse.

        Original Hand-Bound Mock-Up for The Grindstone of God: A Samoyed Fable, with 26 Original Pencil Illustrations by Bernarda Bryson Shahn

      [Roosevelt, NJ: ca 1969-70]. Octavo (23.5cm). Red paper-covered boards; [28]pp. Original hand-made "dummy" of 28 pages, with text and illustrations tipped on to blank pages. Includes a hand-lettered title page and 26 original pencil drawings by Bernarda Shahn, illustrating the (mostly) animal characters in the text. In fine condition, as made. The published book was issued by Holt, Rinehart and Winston in 1970. An enigmatic folktale in which a fox and a horse, each starving to death, must decide among themselves which one is to die. Shahn's animal illustrations are lively and accurate throughout. This is presumably an unused trial version, as an ink note to the front cover states "do not use this dummy." Carl Withers was the author of the well-known 1948 poetry anthology A Rocket in My Pocket. Bernarda Bryson's 1963 book The Sun Is A Golden Earring was a Caldecott medalist.

      (ARBUS, DIANE). Arbus, Diane. Doon Arbus, Editor. DIANE ARBUS: AN APERTURE MONOGRAPH - AN EXCEPTIONALLY RARE VARIANT EDITION OF THE HARDBOUND SECOND PRINTING CONTAINING "TWO GIRLS IN IDENTICAL RAINCOATS, CENTRAL PARK, N.Y.C. 1969". New York: Aperture & The Museum of Modern Art, 1972. First Edition. 4to. Pictorial Boards in Jacket. Photography Monograph. Near Fine/Near Fine. np, 80 duotone illustrations. Designed by Doon Arbus and Marvin Israel. Published in conjunction with the posthumous 1972 retrospective exhibition of her groundbreaking photographic work at New York's Museum of Modern Art, this is the classic Aperture monograph that forever established Diane Arbus' prominence in the pantheon of American postwar photographers. An extraordinary copy of the second printing of the hardbound 1972 MoMA Special Edition of this supremely influential volume (cited on pages 258-259 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 284-285 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and pages 214-215 of "The Book of 101 Books") that contains the subsequently withdrawn image "Two girls in identical raincoats, Central Park, N.Y.C. 1969". The entire initial second print run including the photograph was to have been destroyed by the publishers prior to distribution due to model release issues, and so we suspect this intact surviving example must be exceptionally rare. It is only the second we have handled in thirty years. The covers are bright with both foredge tips and spine ends still crisp; bearing only very minor indentations along the top and bottom edges of the boards. The still-white dust jacket shows a series of diagonal soft creases to the corner of the inside flap to the right of the printed price.

      Van Der Marck, Jan. ART BY TELEPHONE: AN EXHIBITION ORGANIZED BY THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART UNDER THE SPONSORSHIP OF THE AMERICAN NATIONAL BANK AND TRUST COMPANY OF CHICAGO - THE ORIGINAL 33 1/3 RPM LONG PLAYING RECORD ALBUM. Chicago, IL: Museum of Contemporary Art, 1969. First Edition. Large Square 4to. 12" Vinyl LP in Jacket. Near Fine./Very Good.. One 12", two-sided vinyl 33 1/3 rpm long playing phonograph record in a printed paper over cardboard gatefold sleeve, 1 b&w illustration. "Shortly after its opening, the Museum of Contemporary Art planned an exhibition to record the trend, incipient then and pervasive today, toward conceptualization of art. This exhibition, scheduled for the spring of 1968 and abandoned because of technical difficulties, consisted of works in different media, conceived by artists in this country and Europe and executed in Chicago on their behalf. The telephone was designated the most fitting means of communication in relaying instructions to those entrusted with fabrication of the artists' projects or enactment of their ideas. To heighten the challenge of a wholly verbal exchange, drawings, blueprints or written descriptions were avoided". Taken from the album jacket, this was curator Jan van der Marck's summation of the infamous Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago "Art by Telephone" show. This is a copy of the 1969 record which reproduces the phone calls of participating artists Siah Armajani, Richard Artschwager, John Baldessari, Iain Baxter, Mel Bochner, George Brecht, Jack Burnham, James Lee Byars, Robert Cumming, Francoise Dallegret, Jan Dibbets, John Giorno, Robert Grosvenor, Hans Haacke, Richard Hamilton, Dick Higgins, Davi Det Hompson, Robert Huot, Alain Jacquet, Edward Kienholz, Joseph Kosuth, Les Levine, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Claes Oldenburg, Dennis Oppenheim, Richard Serra, Robert Smithson, Guenther Uecker, Stan Van Der Beek, Bernar Venet, Frank Lincoln Viner, Wolf Vostell, William Wegman, and William T. Wiley giving instructions to the MCA staff on how to execute their various pieces for this exhibition which alas, went unrealized. A most handsome, unplayed example of the original 1969 pressings and jacket of this uncommon document (cited on page 215 of Guy Schraenen's "Vinyl: Records and Covers by Artists") whose gatefold sleeve shows some light rubbing and minor abrasions to the exterior.

        Nixon, As Presidential Strategist, Justifies His Postal Reorganization As Not Pro-Union in a Letter to Ike's Conservative Brother

      Nixon, As Presidential Strategist, Justifies His Postal Reorganization As Not Pro-Union in a Letter to Ike's Conservative Brother. In May 1969, four months after he became president, Richard Nixon asked Congress to pass a postal reform act calling for removal of the Postmaster General from the Cabinet and creation of a self-supporting postal corporation wholly owned by the federal government. No action was taken on the issue until March 1970 when there was an illegal postal workers strike called in response to the proposal and Nixon sent in troops and the National Guard to help deliver the mail. After the strike was settled in April, the administration introduced the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 to abolish the United States Post Office Department and creat the United States Postal Service, a corporation-like independent agency with an official monopoly on the delivery of mail in the United States. Nixon signed the law on August 12, 1970. In the months leading up to passage, there were many voices raised in opposition. From the left, union leaders feared that the new corporation would be more resistant to working with them to meet worker's negotiating demands. From the right, critics worried that the new private corporation would have to recognize a postal labor union. This concern seemed to gain currency when the Postal Service was placed under the the Taft-Hartley Act, a law that greatly restricts the activities and power of labor unions but recognizes their rights to organize and strike. One of those most concerned about this was Edgar Eisenhower, brother of President Dwight D. Eisenhower and a very conservative Republican. He wrote Nixon with his concern that this was pro-union legislation, and Nixon was quick to try and assure him it was not. The Eisenhower and Nixon families had by then been united by the marriage of David Eisenhower and Julie Nixon, and the long-term acquaintenceship between Edgar and Nixon, and Edgar's influence, were probably all factors in Nixon doing something quite unusual as president - personally answering correspondence in what are clearly his own words, complete with underlinings and a first-name signature. We do not recall seeing that before. Typed Letter Signed on White House letterhead, Washington, June 3, 1970, to Edgar Eisenhower. "...Let me assure you that the postal reform bill proposed by the Administration would not reqiure compulsory unionism. We have proposed, as one phase of a broad plan for dealing with the unique problems faced by the Post Office Department, that postal labor-management relations be governed by the same laws that apply in the private sector - including the Taft-Hartley and Landrum-Griffin Acts - except that strikes by postal employees would continue to be illiegal, and machinery would be provided to permit resolution of negotiating impasses without resort to strikes. It obviously is not feasible to use the postal reform legislation as a vehicle for reforming the Taft-Hartley Act. Accordingly, one consequence of putting the Postal Service under Taft-Hartley would be that postal management - like management in the private sector - might have to bargain over union shop arrangements in states other than those having right-to-work laws. (Whether the Postal Service would ever agree to a union shop arrangement is another question entirely.) Our guiding principle has been that the Postal Service should be reorganized in a way that would permit it to be managed as effectively as a well-run private business. This entails a resort to the terms of the Taft-Hartley Act, but it certainly does not entail a statutory imposition of compulsory unionism. The need for workable postal reform legislation is urgent. It would be most unfortunate, in my opinion, if passage of an acceptable postal reform bill were delayed by a controversy as to whether the National Labor Relations Act should outlaw the union shop." This letter gives us a rare glimpse of Nixon as strategist during his presidency, weighing and balancing what to say and how to say it.

        President Nixon Inauguration Tickets

      Globe Ticket Company Philadelphi: Globe Ticket Company. 1969. Three tickets to the inauguration of President Richard M. Nixon and Vice President Spiro Agnew on January 20, 1969. The tickets measure 7.25" x 2.5" and are printed on both sides. There is some light wear to the tickets and a couple spots but they are unused with the stub still attached, overall near fine. Each of the three tickets is different with two printed on stiff white card stock with different color inks used for each; the third ticket is printed on a stiff gold-coated card stock. Each shows a portrait of Nixon and Agnew with various illustrations of America on one side and the event information on the other. One white card stock ticket has a price of $12.00 and a location on the mall, while the other white ticket has no price and is for an "Honored Guest" with seating near the White House. The final gold foil ticket was likely reserved for V.I.P.s with seating on the "Presidential Reviewing Stand"; additional research may well determine who's actual seat this was but our Nixon Presidential Library card has expired and we have not had time to renew it just yet. Nevertheless, an interesting selection of tickets from President Nixon's first term as president. .
