        Earth House Hold

      (NY): New Directions. (1969). Essays on spirituality and the natural world. Only 2500 copies printed. This copy is inscribed by Snyder to Clayton Eshleman: "For Clayton in Ypsilanti, in friendship, Gary/ III.92." Eshleman's signature on front flyleaf, with the notations: "NYC May 2, 1969/ Revisited Ypsilanti Nov. 1988." Also with Eshleman's notes throughout. An influential book: Snyder, a Pulitzer Prize winning poet, here presents essays and journal entries on spirituality and ecology -- "earth house hold" being a play on the roots words of ecology. A seminal text of the environmental movement and, in particular, the notion of Deep Ecology. Also a nice association copy between two prominent poets, one a Pulitzer Prize winner, the other a winner of the National Book Award for one of his books of translation. Both, in addition, have had an interest over the years in ethnopoetics, and in tribal and prehistoric arts and have broken new ground in bringing these subjects into the contemporary dialogue on poetry and art. A thread pulling at the spine cloth, a few small stains to covers; still a near fine copy in a near fine, foxed, parchment dust jacket, an unusual production. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Typed Note Signed

      [1969]. January 4, 1968[1969]. A note addressed "Dear Bert [Krantz]," thanking him for a card and then quickly adding that he has found two errors in the text of "PC" (Portnoy's Complaint), despite not having read the book through yet. He describes the errors and asks if they can be corrected in then second printing and whether Bantam will print from the second printing. Signed: "Make love, not typos,/ Yrs, Philip." Roth's dating of this letter is itself likely a typo: the book's official publication was in February of 1969; the letter was likely written in January of 1969. A bibliographically significant letter, pertaining to what may still be Roth's best-known work. Folded for mailing; recipient's marginal mark; author's name on verso; near fine. .

        America house wrapped 1969. Siebdruck.

      90 x 62,5 cm, Tadell. Nr. 33 von 200 Exemplaren. Mit aufmontiertem Verhüllungsstoff. Vom Künstler signiert und datiert. Rückseitig gestempelt: Edition Tangente, Heidelberg. Heidelberg im Mai 1969: Für drei Tage spielte die Kunst die Hauptrolle in der idyllischen Neckarstadt. Über 80 Künstler hatten die Veranstalter Klaus Staeck, heute Präsident der Berliner Akademie der Künste, und Jochen Goetze, emeritierter Professor des Geschichtlichen Seminars der Universität Heidelberg, zu "intermedia '69" eingeladen. Das Fluxusfestival lockte etwa 5.000 Zuschauer mit Aktionen, Happenings, Filmvorführungen, Konzerten und Performances: Christo verpackte in einer legendären Aktion das Amerika-Haus, Daniel Spoerri kochte Transsylvanisches Gulasch in der Studentenmensa, die Lidl-Akademie turnte für die kommende Olympiade, Jochen Gerz verteilte Flugblätter, die Guru Guru Groove-Band heulte Dada-Rock, Klaus Rinke errichtete eine Wasserfontäne, Michelangelo Pistoletto ließ es auf der Bühne krachen, Tony Morgan verarbeitete Blumen zu Kunst. Das Publikum war nachhaltig irritiert, denn "intermedia 69" platzte in eine politisch hochexplosive Zeit. Einer zunehmend verunsicherten bürgerlichen Öffentlichkeit standen protestierende Studenten gegenüber, die mit Wucht an den bestehenden Verhältnissen rüttelten. Die Feindbilder waren deutlich und die Fronten klar abgesteckt, als sich die Kunst in Form von "intermedia 69" wie ein Keil zwischen diese beiden Parteien schob. Ablehnung kam von beiden Seiten. Die bürgerliche Öffentlichkeit fand die Aktionen einfach nur chaotisch, radikale Studenten verurteilten sie als unpolitisch und damit konventionell.

        Hochzeit in Orgossolo. Oel auf Pavatex. Auf Rückseite voll signiert. Vorne links unten monogrammiert..

      59 x 79 cm, Kleine Farbfehlstellen sonst tadell. Gerahmt hinter Glas. Mythologisches Bild mit religiösen Anspielungen. Fries, Willy (1907 Wattwil (SG), ?18.7.1980 Wattwil (SG), Maler, Zeichner und Grafiker. Wandbild, Glasfenster, Zeichnung, Holzschnitt und Illustration. Der im ländlichen Wattwil aufgewachsene Willy Fries bricht 1929 sein Studium der Kunst- und Literaturwissenschaft an der Universität Zürich auf Anraten von Heinrich Wölfflin zugunsten einer Laufbahn als freier Künstler ab. In Paris kurzzeitig an den Académies Scandinave und Grande Chaumière sowie in den Ateliers von Fernand Léger und Amédée Ozenfant. 1930-34 weitere Ausbildung an der Universität und der Akademie in Berlin sowie Anschluss an den Kreis der bekennenden Kirche um Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Studienreisen nach Italien, Frankreich, Holland und Flandern. 1935 zwingt ihn ein Skiunfall zum Verbleib in Wattwil. Dort entsteht mit dem Gemäldezyklus Die Passion (1936-1944, Köln-Marienburg, Garnisonskirche), der die Leidensgeschichte Christi in der damaligen Gegenwart und mit dem Toggenburg als Kulisse schildert, in den folgenden Jahren sein Schlüsselwerk. 1939 Heirat mit der Pfarrerstochter Dorothea Wieser und endgültige Niederlassung in Wattwil. Fries entwickelt sich zu einem vielbeschäftigten Künstler, der zahlreiche Fresken und Glasfenster für Kirchen, Spitäler und Gemeinschaftsräume vorwiegend in der Ostschweiz, aber auch in Berlin, Bonn und Seifhennersdorf entwirft. Mit der Passion und weiteren Gemäldezyklen wie Christ ist geboren (1944-49), einer Schilderung der Weihnachtsgeschichte vor den Ruinen der zerbombten Stadt München, findet er im Kontext zeitgenössischer religiöser Malerei in der Nachkriegszeit starke Beachtung und wird mit Einzelausstellungen in der Schweiz, in Deutschland und Frankreich geehrt. Die filmische Umsetzung der Passion in eigener Regie unter dem Titel Gib uns Frieden wird 1962 mit dem Anerkennungspreis der Interfilmtagung in Brüssel prämiert und von zahlreichen Fernsehstationen gesendet. 1964 Gesamtausstellung im Kunstmuseum St. Gallen. Auszeichnung mit dem Rembrandt-Preis in Salzburg 1970. Für seine Bemühungen um die Darstellung des Evangeliums in der Malerei wird er 1972 mit dem Doktor honoris causa der theologischen Fakultät der Universität Bern geehrt. 1977 Jubiläumsausstellung in den beiden Kirchen von Wattwil. Die vom Künstler in seinem Todesjahr gegründete Stiftung veranstaltet 1982 in St. Gallen sowie 1987 in Hamburg und Berlin Gedächtnisausstellungen.

        Essay und Werkkatalog

Bound-in are three original lithographs, also signed and numbered by Hutter. An essay on the style of Austrian neosurrealist artist Wolfgang Hutter, followed by a catalog of his works. Brilliant colors and superimposing of vegetable/human motifs are characteristic in Hutter's stylized, erotic works. It could be said that his style was part of the post-war reaction against the Nazi regime's censorship of the Surrealism. Illustrated throughout with vibrant color and black & white reproductions of his works. Extremely fine in vellum; housed in cloth slipcase decorated with one of the artist's fantasy illustrations.

        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. .

        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.
