McNamara, JFK and LBJ’s Secretary of Defense from 1961-1968.

        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.

        C-S The Master Craftsman

      The Adagio Press 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.

        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.

        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

      (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. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. 0-912334-40-1 Inventory Number: 019446&
