        Andy Warhol (Stockholm Catalogue)

      Stockholm: Moderna Museet, (1969). One introductory page was loose and been tipped back in, pages browning as usual, else near fine in Warhol's famous silkscreened flower boards. Only the second copy of this elusive edition I have seen or handled.. Second printing. Quarto. The exceedingly rare edition in hard cover, with between 10-50 copies known to exist. This copy from the library of Warhol biographer and confidant, Bob Colacello, with his signature and handwritten ex-libris on the front end paper. Warhol's famous 'Stockholm Catalogue', published on the occasion of his first European solo show at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, February - March, 1968. The concept for the catalogue was developed by Kasper König, who commissioned Factory stalwart Billy Name, and a teenage Stephen Store, to photograph how Warhol and his coconspirators lived and worked. But it was König's use of the xerox machine to reproduce Warhol's own work that gives this catalogue its signature feel. By some estimates over 200,000 copies were printed in three editions. (Parr / Badger, v2, 144-145; Open Book 238-239).

A fine copy in silver-stamped black boards, in an extremely nice example of the fragile photo-illustrated publisher's slipcase, complete with the card insert (lightly fixed), publisher's yellow obi, and original tissue overlay (lightly worn at the edges). The nicest copy I have seen.. First Edition. Square quarto in slipcase. Foreword by Harry Callahan. Text by Shuzo Takiguchi. Layout by Yusaku Kamehura. SIGNED by Ishimoto. Beautifully conceived, designed, and printed. While the influence of Ishimoto's teacher, Harry Callahan, is evident here, there is no mistaking Ishimoto's virtuosity, both as a photographer and a book maker. Certainly the finest Chicago photobook ever published. (Parr / Badger, v1, 289; Auer 495).

        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.

Laid in is an announcement for a 2008 reading by Johnson and others, presumably the event where the signature was obtained. A scarce first book -- preceding his second by over a decade -- by a writer best known these days for his fiction, winning the National Book Award for his 2007 novel Tree of Smoke. . First Edition.

        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. .
