        Richard Nixon as President, writes a politically reflective TLS to Jack Dreyfus, founder of the Dreyfus funds

      Washington, DC, December 5, 1970. 6.75" x 8.75". "Single page TLS, 6.75"" x 8.75"", dated ""December 5, 1970"" on White House Stationary with the embossed seal to top. Signed by Richard Nixon as ""RN"". Accompanied with the original White House envelope, however not postmarked appearing as perhaps a hand delivered letter, 7"" x 4.25"". Expected center fold else fine condition. Accompanied by what appears to be a typed copy on tissue paper of Jack Dreyfus' response to Nixon's letter, 8.5"" x 10.75"" with faint crease, unsigned, but dated January 12, 1971.Richard Nixon TLS to Jack Dreyfus, composed while President. Nixon had a longterm relationship with Dreyfus, who is considered the 2nd most significant money manager of the last century. Dreyfus had contributed heavily to Nixon's campaigns both in 1960, and in 1968 and met frequently with Nixon. In Richard Nixon's letter to Dreyfus, the President enclosed a group of collected speeches as ""a token of my appreciation for the important contribution you have made toward the cause of good government"" and he noted ""I thought these collected speeches might serve to point out the paths this Administration is taking to achieve the goals all of us are seeking -- for our country, for ourselves, and for our children."" The set includes Jack Dreyfus's response to Nixon's letter whereby aside from thanking him for the ""book containing your speeches"", he also extends his home on Minot's Island to Nixon for vacationing and notes ""We have scraped a piece of land level so that a helicopter can land there"". A significant letter by Dreyfus as it turned out Nixon would take him up on his offer and frequent Minot's Island quite often, including conducting business both on the phone and in person from the Dreyfus compound. Richard Nixon's relationship with Jack Dreyfus became highly controversial years later as it has come to light a drug Dreyfus had taken for himself to cure him of Depression, which Dreyfus heralded as a ""wonder drug"", was offered directly to Nixon by Dreyfus to assist him with his mood disorders, depression, anxiety and stress. In the recent published book, Arrogance of Power, referenced allegations which revealed interviews with Nixon’s former psychotherapist, Dr. Arnold Hutschnecker, who counseled Nixon for decades and considered the president to be “neurotic.” “Everyone has their share of neuroses, but there is indeed significant evidence in the presidency, well before Watergate, that Nixon on occasion behaved in a way that to ordinary people was simply not normal” and that ""Concern for Nixon’s mental state was so great, Summers writes, that Secretary of Defense James R. Schlesinger ordered the military not to react to orders from the White House unless they were cleared by him or the secretary of state."" It was also known Nixon consumed large quantities of a particular drug without a prescription, the drug Dilantin which was provided to him by Jack Dreyfus.Jack however had no medical qualifications however he credited Dilantin with relieving him of chronic depression almost overnight, and he had become the leading advocate of it as a panacea for all manner of ailments. In the book, Arrogance of Power, it was confirmed that at a meeting between Nixon and Dreyfus in 1968 at Key Biscayne, Dreyfus told the author of the book that Nixon had said ""Why don't you give me some Dilantin? "" So he (Dreyfus) thought, ""What the heck, he's (going to be) President of the united States. I can't get in trouble … So I went out to the car and got a bottle of a thousand and gave it to him. A few days later he called me and said 'Is it all right if I take two a day?"" I said, ""Yes I think so"" When the author asked what Nixon wanted the Dilantin for, Dreyfus was vague. ""Nixon"", he said ""had a lot of things … worries"". At one point when Dreyfus suggested that the president should perhaps get the medication from a doctor, to which Nixon had said, ""To heck with the doctor""The two continued frequent correspondence and met quite regularly both in the White House for business, but also socially and the reader can see in this letter Nixon's overall gratitude to Jack Drefus for his ""contributions"".A fantastic letter between Nixon and Jack Dreyfus, an important, significant figure in Nixon's life."

        The Memoirs, being his experiences in World Wars I and II, together with some other matters. For the Westropp family records.

      Chilham, Kent: For the author, 1970 - Octavo. Original full sheep, red morocco label, edges sprinkled red, black endpapers. Westropp armorial bookplate mounted on the front pastedown. First and only edition, limited to 50 signed and numbered copies, this number 9 of the first 10 which were bound in leather, this copy with personal inscription; "To Cupid [Colonel A. W. Valentine C.B.E., D.S.O.] In remembrance of some amusing and not so amusing occasions" Westropp served with Valentine in the Devons in WWI. Inevitably uncommon, Copac has BL, King's and IWM only, OCLC adds copies at the universities of Calgary, Kansas and Nebraska. Extraordinary life-story of a genuinely extraordinary man. "The bearing of Monty Westropp in situations of extreme peril when the spirits of many around him were downcast is graphically epitomised in the recollections of the Canadian historian Walter Lord in his book The Miracle of Dunkirk: ''The long shadow of tradition was now very much in evidence. When Colonel Lionel H. M. Westropp ordered the 8th King's Own Royal Regiment to head down the beach towards the mole he first assembled his officers. He reminded them that they wore the badge of one of the oldest regiments of the line. 'We therefore will represent the regiment as we march down the beach this afternoon. We must not let it down ' As Lord recalls, the battalion set off in perfect step, arms swinging in unison, rifles correctly slung and in immaculate marching order. It was a sight which put fresh heart into the many fearfully battered and demoralised units who witnessed it" (obituary, The Times 5 February, 1991). Commissioned into the Devonshire Regiment in April 1915, within a year he was commanding a company at the Battle of the Somme, all of his senior officers having been killed; "Many brave men cracked but Westropp never flinched from even the most appalling decisions. On one occasion a major in an adjacent unit was fleeing, terrified, to the rear and causing general panic among the soldiers around him. Without hesitation Westropp, then a mere 2nd lieutenant, drew his pistol and brought the officer down. Westropp then called his sergeant major to him, and together they reformed their shaken company and turned their faces towards the enemy in front". In the rear rest areas he became notorious for "performing energetic Cossack dances on restaurant tables, accompanied by his Russian girlfriend, Olga". Between the wars a spell in India allowed him to indulge his passion for polo and tiger and boar hunting, he also distinguished himself as an army fencer. From 1933 to 1936 he commanded the army's anti-gas unit, and compiled the relevant manuals, and in 1939 he raised a new battalion of the 8th King's Own, leading it as part of the BEF during the Blitzkrieg and through Dunkirk. He was later on Malta, where during the siege his battalion became known as "Westropp's Own", "So complete was his identification with it". He survived a torpedo attack off the coast of Tunisia, subsequently serving on the staff for the invasion of Sicily, but "turned down a later offer of staff training, quite correctly believing his métier to be that of regimental soldiering. Indeed, in spite of a sometimes alarming demeanour, he inspired intense loyalty among all ranks under him Above all his attitudes to life were influenced by his having survived the First World War when virtually all his school friends and regimental colleagues perished". Lengel 921.

        Â‘The Empire TrilogyÂ’ [Comprising ‘TroublesÂ’/Â’The Siege of KrishnapurÂ’/Â’The Singapore GripÂ’] First UK Editions 1970-1978

      Cape/Weidenfeld Nicolson, 1970 A set of first edition, first printings published by Jonathan Cape and Weidenfeld and Nicolson between 1970 and 1978. All three novels by Farrell, constituting The Empire Trilogy, are generally considered only to be connected thematically, although the character of Archer, who appears in Troubles, makes an appearance in The Singapore Grip also. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time all three first editions have been presented as a set. Troubles, published by Jonathan Cape in 1970, is a near fine book with the red top stain still present the book is without inscriptions. In a very good+ wrapper which is unclipped (45s/£2.25 as called for) with some wear to the spine ends and rubbing to the edges and corners. Superb dust wrapper illustration by Bill Botten. The Siege of Krishnapur, published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson in 1973 (winner of the Booker Prize of that year) is a very good book with one name to the ffep in a very good (internally reinforced) wrapper which is clipped and has some wear in places as well as a neatly repaired closed tear to the foot of the front panel. The Singapore Grip, published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson in 1978, is a near fine book without inscriptions in a very good+ wrapper which is not price clipped and has some fading to the spine as well as some wear to corners and extremities. Since Troubles was announced as the winner of the Lost Booker Prize of 1970, interest in Farrells work has risen dramatically. The trilogy exists as his legacy and displays his superb writing talent so tragically cut short in August 1979.[removed][removed]

        TIRESIAS.

      (Northampton: Gehenna Press, 1970). 5 x 7. 22 leaves. Frontis bust of Tennyson signed by Baskin. Title engraved by John Howard Benson and printed from the block in red. Four other etchings (two on blue paper, one in three colors) each signed by Baskin. Bound by Arno Werner in full vellum, quarter vellum tray case. Tray case has light soil; book yawns a bit, but is fine. Although 50 copies were printed of this exquisite little book, "About half the edition was destroyed by water damage at the press in 1970." (The Work of Fifty Years 68) Printed by Harold McGrath in Centaur types on handmade Fabriano. This copy is signed by Baskin in the colophon, and is number 30. All the etchings are signed (although the bibliography does not call for that). Baskin writes "It was not Tennyson but Tiresias, the male-female archaic know-it-all that really interested me & caused the poem to be printed. I thus had the possibility of doing several small & very hirsute etchings of him, & in color the copulating snakes whose secret procreative activities he penetrated to the vast annoyance of Artemis--the cause of Tiresias' sexual change. The book is noteworthy for its title page, enhanced by a wood engraving of the title by John E. Benson...."

        Photograph signed. Head of a Dancer

      1970. Signed. JACOBI, Lotte. Photograph signed. Head of a Dancer. No place, circa 1970. Gelatin silver print (measures 11 by 14 inches), signed on print recto. Matted and framed, entire piece measures 17 by 19 inches. $7800.Large gelatin silver print of JacobiÂ’s famous 1929 portrait of dancer Niura Norskaya, a “powerful and classic example” of that artistry that ranks Jacobi “among the foremost portrait photographers” (Otto Steinert), this 11 by 14-inch print signed by Jacobi in her customary penciled hand on the lower corner.“Berlin in the 20s was a dazzling cultural capitalÂ… The brilliance of this world is reflected in Lotte JacobiÂ’s photographs” (Fasanelli, Lotte Jacobi). At this time Berlin “was the center of modern dance, and Jacobi photographed many of the cityÂ’s most acclaimed dancers” (Sundstrom, 8). “Her dance photographs are beautifully free responses to light, movement and form. Niura Norskaya was dancing with Anna Pavlova at the time her picture, often titled The Head of a Dancer, was taken. The sweeping curves of an oversized black hat contrast with NorskayaÂ’s bright, simplified features. She gleams at us like a modern porcelain doll” (Moriarty, 10-11). One of JacobiÂ’s most famous images, this striking 11 by 14-inch gelatin silver print, signed by her, “is a powerful and classic example” of those elements in her portraiture where “design is up-front” (Wise, 8), and further reveals that “clear perception of the essence of humanity [which] has brought to her the just honor of being ranked among the foremost portrait photographers” (Steinert, Portfolio I). Norskaya photographed by Jacobi circa 1929; print date circa 1970. Many of JacobiÂ’s prints “have no vintage counterparts” (White, 5n), in that she was forced to flee Germany in the early 1930s and “leave behind more than 90 percent of her archives, all of which the Nazis destroyed” (New York Times). See Moriarty, 23; White 139; Wise, 135. From the estate of Lotte Jacobi. With penciled notation “#21” on print verso.A fine signed print.

        One

      1970. First Edition . OHARA, Ken. One. Tokyo: Tsukiji Shokan, 1970. Thick square quarto, original stiff photographic wrappers, photographic endpapers. $2200.First edition of OharaÂ’s first book, his seminal conceptualist work of portraiture, with 500 black-and-white close-ups of individual faces photographed on the streets of New York.While working in New York with Richard Avedon and Hiro, Japanese photographer Ken Ohara reconfigured the art of portraiture when he made an “obsessive recording of tightly framed single faces snapped on the streets of New YorkÂ… and printed them with the same tonal characteristics, thus eliminating differences in skin colour. Through this, and through tight framing that locates the eyes, nose and mouth in the same position on each full-page bleed, he dispenses with the main racial differences. Other specific physiognomic characteristics that we think of as defining racial groups, such as slanting eyes, broad noses, or thin lips, turn out in OharaÂ’s compendium not to be nearly as important as the colour of the skin. Thus Ohara has taken the utopian step of using the camera to turn humankind into one big melting pot, his serial photographs making almost ritual atonement for the sin of racism” (Parr & Badger I:291). In 1974 Ohara won a Guggenheim Fellowship and his work was featured in the “New Japanese Photography” exhibit at MoMA. Without extremely scarce dust jacket. Open Book, 266. Images clean and bright. Some minor expert repairs and light toning to spine of original wrappers. Near-fine condition.

        Typed letter signed

      1970. Signed. NIXON, Richard. Typed letter signed. Washington: White House, June 4, 1970. Original ivory letterhead leaf (6-3/4 inches by 9 inches). $2500.June 4, 1970 typed letter signed by Richard Nixon as president, on official White House letterhead to his longtime patron, California publisher James Copley, dated soon after Nixon's newly announced policy to send troops into Cambodia sparked widespread protest, with Nixon thanking Copley, in part, for his ""forthright approval"" of the Cambodia decision—""In these trouble times particularly, your support is deeply heartening.""This June 4, 1970 typed letter on White House letterhead signed by President Nixon, to powerful newspaper publisher James Copley, comes at a time when Nixon was under siege for sending U.S. troops into Cambodia. Following a dramatic televised address on April 30, when Nixon announced that decision, the nation erupted in protest. On May 4 four students were killed at Kent State University and two students at Jackson State College were killed on May 14, only days after the May 9 March on Washington. In Nixon's letter he thanks Copley for his ""very forthright approval of my decision to clear the enemy's sanctuaries along the Cambodia-Vietnam border… In these troubled times particularly, your support is deeply heartening."" Nixon had a longtime ""patron in Copley… Nixon also benefited repeatedly from the expertise of Herbert Klein, a senior Copley editor"" who was Nixon's director of communications during his presidency (Summers, Arrogance of Power). At Copley's death in 1973, Nixon praised him as ""close friend and adviser… a noble American whose distinguished career in journalism and public affairs placed him in the direct line of descent from this country's great printer-patriots of the past—from Zenger to Pulitzer.""The text of Nixon's letter reads: ""June 4, 1970 Dear Jim: It has been especially gratifying to see the many editorials on Cambodia in the Union and the Tribune. Your very forthright approval of my decision to clear the enemy's sanctuaries along the Cambodia-Vietnam border means a great deal to me, and more importantly, to each of America's fighting men. In these troubled times particularly, your support is deeply heartening. Pat joins me in sending warmest regards to Helen and you. Sincerely [signed] RN [typescript] Mr. James S. Copley, Publisher, San Diego Union and Tribune, 940 Third Avenue, San Diego, California 92112"" (underlining in original). White House letterhead stationary with embossed presidential seal. Only faint foldline, text and signature clear and dark. An important presidential letter in fine condition.

Accompanied with the original White House envelope, however not postmarked appearing as perhaps a hand delivered letter, 7"" x 4.25"". Expected center fold else fine condition. Accompanied by what appears to be a typed copy on tissue paper of Jack Dreyfus' response to Nixon's letter, 8.5"" x 10.75"" with faint crease, unsigned, but dated January 12, 1971.Richard Nixon TLS to Jack Dreyfus, composed while President. Nixon had a longterm relationship with Dreyfus, who is considered the 2nd most significant money manager of the last century. Dreyfus had contributed heavily to Nixon's campaigns both in 1960, and in 1968 and met frequently with Nixon. In Richard Nixon's letter to Dreyfus, the President enclosed a group of collected speeches as ""a token of my appreciation for the important contribution you have made toward the cause of good government"" and he noted ""I thought these collected speeches might serve to point out the paths this Administration is taking to achieve the goals all of us are seeking -- for our country, for ourselves, and for our children."" The set includes Jack Dreyfus's response to Nixon's letter whereby aside from thanking him for the ""book containing your speeches"", he also extends his home on Minot's Island to Nixon for vacationing and notes ""We have scraped a piece of land level so that a helicopter can land there"". A significant letter by Dreyfus as it turned out Nixon would take him up on his offer and frequent Minot's Island quite often, including conducting business both on the phone and in person from the Dreyfus compound. Richard Nixon's relationship with Jack Dreyfus became highly controversial years later as it has come to light a drug Dreyfus had taken for himself to cure him of Depression, which Dreyfus heralded as a ""wonder drug"", was offered directly to Nixon by Dreyfus to assist him with his mood disorders, depression, anxiety and stress. In the recent published book, Arrogance of Power, referenced allegations which revealed interviews with Nixon’s former psychotherapist, Dr. Arnold Hutschnecker, who counseled Nixon for decades and considered the president to be â€

        Photograph signed. Kollwitz

      1970. Signed. JACOBI, Lotte. Photograph signed. Käthe Kollwitz. No place, circa 1970. Gelatin silver print (measures 10 by 13 inches), signed on print recto. Matted and framed, entire piece measures 16 by 19 inches. $7500.Large gelatin silver print of the legendary German artist, this rarely seen image of a pensive Kollwitz captured by Jacobi the same day in 1931 as her more common portrait of the artist facing the camera, with Jacobi’s trademark penciled signature at the corner of this 10 by 13-inch print.This large gelatin silver print of renowned artist Käthe Kollwitz, signed by Lotte Jacobi, catches Kollwitz in a moment at once pensive and restless, thus offering a rarely seen image that contrasts with Jacobi’s more common view of Kollwitz facing the camera. Jacobi took both photographs when Kollwitz was at her studio to be photographed “for a magazine Die Schaffende Frau [The Creative Woman] in 1931. She came wearing a lace collar and most of the pictures were made with it close around the neck. Toward the end Kollwitz reluctantly removed the collar,” a move that defines Jacobi’s exceptional work, with its considered artlessness. In her portraits of Kollwitz, Einstein, Robert Frost and others, “design and composition serve as vehicles of emotional expression however muted” (Wise, 19). It is this truth that strikes at the core of Jacobi’s brilliance in photographs “celebrated for their directness, their penetrating immediacy.”In the glittering artistic world of early 1930s Berlin, both Kollwitz and Jacobi were well-known—Kollwitz as one of Germany’s most beloved artists and Jacobi as one of a famous family of photographers whose own work reflected a fresh “personal style and artistic voice. It was her contact with the thriving Berlin art community that galvanized her imagination… German Expressionist artists like Kollwitz and Grosz shared Jacobi’s interest in revealing human emotions” (Sundstom, 1, 5-6). Not long after this portrait was taken, Jacobi had to flee Nazi Germany and “much of her work was lost… Thousands of glass plates, countless files of negatives” (Wise, 8). She was “forced to leave behind more than 90 percent of her archives, all of which the Nazis destroyed” (New York Times). Kollwitz, similarly, was soon “forced to resign her post as director of graphic arts at the Prussian Academy of Arts… [and] an exhibition of her work was banned in 1936” (Moriarty, 12). Full-bleed gelatin silver print (measures 10 by 13 inches), with Jacobi’s trademark penciled signature at the lower right corner of print recto. Print date circa 1970. See White 151. From the estate of Lotte Jacobi.A fine signed print.

        In the Night Kitchen

      1970. First Edition . Signed. SENDAK, Maurice. In The Night Kitchen. [New York]: Harper and Row, (1970). Tall thin quarto, original white cloth, mounted cover illustration, original dust jacket. $6500.Scarce first edition, advance review copy, of this wonderfully illustrated classic, inscribed for Burt Britton, the avid book collector and co-founder of Books & Co: ""For Burt—Mazel-Tov! Maurice Sendak. Dec. '70,"" with a small self-portrait by Sendak (presumably casting himself as Mickey). With publisher's advance review slip laid in.Sendak's homage to New York City and the movies of the 1930s, In the Night Kitchen ""spins the reader through the surreal fantasy of a child's dream, like Alice into Wonderland or Dorothy into Oz."" Like most of Sendak's work, Kitchen is ""a celebration of the primal, sensory world of childhood and an affirmation of its imaginative potency"" (Silvey, 586). It was a Caldecott Honor book in 1971. First-issue dust jacket, without the Caldecott medal affixed. Hanrahan A75. This copy is inscribed to Burt Britton, an avid book collector and eventually the co-founder of Books & Co in New York City. While working as a bartender at Village Vanguard in New York, Burt Britton found himself alone with Norman Mailer. When Mailer asked Britton, ""What do you want from me, Kid?"" after last call, Britton replied that he wanted Mailer to draw him a self-portrait. Mailer did and so began a lifelong collecting interest. Britton collected hundreds of self-portraits—first while working at Vanguard and later while working at the Strand bookstore. He solicited self-portraits from novelists such as Truman Capote and Jorge Luis Borges, from musicians such as Miles Davis, and even from sports stars such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Before long, he was the owner of an exceptionally valuable collection. Random House eventually bought book rights to a selection of the portraits in 1976 as Self-Portrait: Book People Picture Themselves. In 1978, Britton moved to Books and Co. and continued his collection. This book contains a self-portrait sketch by Maurice Sendak, apparently implying that Mickey from In the Night Kitchen is him (or perhaps that all of his characters are him, as his self-portrait sketch in Where the Wild Things Are portrayed him as a Wild Thing).Book fine, bright, corner-clipped dust jacket with only slightest rubbing to extremities. A very nearly fine inscribed copy with a wonderful provenance.

Israel today occupies a central place in international news...A considerable number of journalists cover intensively, day by day, Israeli and Middle East news for the international press, radio and television. The information is often lacking in depth, objectivity and understanding...The Israeli news media suffer either from the impact of official propaganda or from the exaggerations of marginal opposition groups...Our endeavor is, to the best of our modest means, to fill this "vacuum". In presenting a carefully selected digest of the Israeli press and features specially written for this bulleting, we hope to give a vivid picture of Israel as it really is...Our bulletin, conceived as a medium for independent opinion and free inquiry, will concentrate on the problem with which Israelis, Arabs and world public opinion is concerned - the search for a peaceful solution to the Middle East."

Slight darkening to spine, otherwise a fine copy. Facsimile plates thoughout achieved by collotype, some with watercolour washes applied by hand. First edition thus, publisher Arnold Fawcus's copy, copy A of 26 lettered copies reserved for the Trustees of the William Blake Trust and the Publishers, in full morocco with a set of proofs showing the progressive states of the collotype process, from a total edition of 662 copies on Arches pure rag paper made to match the paper used by Blake. This copy derives from the Trianon Press Archive, from the estate of Trianon publisher and founder Arnold Fawcus. Blake scholar Geoffrey Keynes (1887-1982), the brother of John Maynard, provides a commentary and bibliographical history. He summarises the gnomic intent of Blake's early tractate thus: "Blake identifies the Poetic Genius, that is God, with 'Divine Humanity'. Man is therefore uniform, yet with infinite variety in the individuals. All men, thus derived from a universal Poetic Genius, have but one religion, though each nation has its difference beliefs according to its needs." [Attributes: First Edition]
