        Handschriftlicher Brief, datiert und signiert an Christian Grützmacher in Englisch.

      Düsseldorf, 8.5. 1970 - 1 S. mit handschriftlichem gelaufenem Briefumschlag. Filliou hat von Walter König vernommen, dass sich Grützmacher in Frankfurt aufhält, und fragt ihn um ein Treffen in Düsseldorf an. Er hat von Tomas Schmit vernommen, dass dieser sein Theaterstück "A Classical Play" ins Deutsche übersetzt hat. I sent it to you 2 years ago, for eventual publication. It seems you dropped you plans, while i found somebody who would publish it in a bilingual edition". Bittet ihm um Rücksendung des Originals und der Übersetzung. - Grützmacher hatte wohl darauf gehofft, den Text in die geplante Anthologie "Spielpläne 1" aufnehmen zu können. Die von Filliou erwähnte zweisprachige Ausgabe ist nie erschienen.

        Place the chosen tautology. Opus 48. - Papierkleber mit maschinengeschriebenem Text auf starkem Karton, rückseitig mit Stempeldruck "Present".

      (ca. ) 1970 - 20 x 15 cm. Fondazione Bonotto FX1364. - Eric Andersen’s pieces are so involved with the simple concept that it is sometimes impossible to discover if a piece is taking place at all. He not only takes blank structures to their logical extreme, but minimal art as well, which results in his establishing interesting new orders of boredom. For example, there is the following piece: Opus 48: which turns anonymous when the instruction is followed out It comes through the mail with a piece of cardboard that reads: place the chosen tautology So one chooses a tautology and hides it and has a secret. Only the sender and those he tells know what became of it, so it really does become both anonymous and private, making the title observation true. The public performance of a piece like this is unnecessary, however, by its nature. Still, the act is somehow boring and, through this, interesting. But we have now reached the point where performance art merges into nonperformance art, which brings us to the visual arts, among other things. (Larry Austin + Douglas Kahn, Source, Berkeley 2011).

        MARIA CALLAS / BLACKGLAMA POSTER (ca. 1970)

      Blackglama Mink Furs 1970 - Vintage original 30 x 22" (75 x 55 cm.) poster, USA. Maria Callas. Wonderful poster for Blackglama Mink Furs, which also appeared as magazine ads at the time. Only the great legends of the entertainment world were asked to pose for the famous line of fur coats. This is an absolutely stunning image of the Greek-American soprano famous for her dramatic interpretations of great opera roles and her bel canto vocal technique. The Blackglama ad campaign is one of the most ingenious in the history of American advertising. Some of the other legends include Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, Marlene Dietrich, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Lana Turner, Cher, Rudolph Nureyev, Ray Charles and more recently, Janet Jackson. The early series, 1968-72, which Callas is a part of, were photographed by Richard Avedon. Poster is unfolded and unused, FINE

        [Photographs]: Vietnam Era Air Force Maintenance Technician Stationed in Thailand

      Thailand. 1970-1971. 18 oversize original black and white photographs used as postcards measuring 5" x 7" to 5" x 8". All photos are near fine with occasional creasing and some edgewear from mailing. A collection of 18 black and white photographs taken by American Air Force Maintenance tech, H.E. Lyndes, while he was stationed in Thailand between 1970 and 1971 during the Vietnam conflict. On the verso of each he has written to his family using the prints as homemade postcards, explaining each photo in detail and inquiring about home. The photographs depict life in Thailand from basket weaving to open air markets to little children playing, each with commentary. In a letter to his daughter in October of 1970 on the back of a photo of a young girl carving wood, Lyndes writes, "in Chiang Mai some of the best wood carvers are young girls. This girl can't be more than 20 or so yet she is one of their most skilled carvers. I might add that she has been at this occupation since she was seven years old... I know it doesn't sound like much fun, but these girls take a great deal of pride in their work. They are real experts at something and they know it!" In November he wrote to his family on the back of a photo of a man making a reed bowl, "There is just so much to learn about this new operation. Relatively speaking it is a little operation but having never sat in this "seat" before and having never had much to do with this type of aircraft it does indeed take a while to get the hang of things." The postcards offer a glimpse at life abroad during the Vietnam conflict, by focusing on amateur photography he was able to capture the Thai people in their daily activities. .

        Dada Svizzero.

      Milan: Gabriele Mazzotta, 1970 - 9 works. Facsimile paper wrappers, wire-stitched, front wrapper lettered in black and orange. With the original wood patterned cardboard portfolio, titles to label on front board in purple, label ruled in yellow and green, label to inside front board printed in brown. A little creasing to portfolio extremities, tape mark to front and rear boards, label to front board a little cockled, some foxing to wrappers, an excellent set. Illustrated throughout. Limited edition, one of 500 copies, a portfolio from the unnumbered series Documenti e periodici Dada (five portfolios in total, including Dada Americano, Dada Germanico, Dada Francese, and Dada Italiano). This portfolio of nine facsimile pamphlets, predominately in French and originally published in either Zürich or Paris, comprises some of the foundational texts of the Dada movement. The works include issues 1-8 of Dada magazine, published in Zürich between July 1917 and September 1921 and edited variously by Marcel Janco, François Arp, and Tristan Tzara. Contributors and illustrators include Hans Arp, André Breton, Paul Éluard, Max Ernst, Francis Picabia, Hans Richter, Giorgio de Chirico, Robert Delaunay, and Wasily Kandinsky. The 1916 journal Cabaret Voltaire, edited by Hugo Ball and the first of the Dada reviews, is also included, as is the sole issue of Der Zeltweg, published in November 1919. These feature work by Pablo Picasso, Guillaume Apollinaire, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Kurt Schwitters, Sophie Taeuber, and Mary Wigman. Italian scholar and curator Arturo Schwarz was friends with many of the Dada circle, and he established his independent publishing house soon after his move to Milan in 1949, printing texts by authors previously unpublished in Italy. He later donated his significant collection of Dada and Surrealist art to the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Dada Svizzero is well-represented institutionally but commercially rare.

        Archive Of Apple Computer Related Ephemera From The Collection Of Kenneth Silverman

      Fine. 0. Hardcover. The history of computers is generally considered to begin in the early part of the 20th century -with the advent of room-filling machines filled with easily broken vacuum tubes, germanium diodes, punch cards and rooms that were cooled to near freezing so that fires wouldn't break out. Many generations of large machines followed? all of them able to do few different tasks, and even if they could switch between basic mathematics to logarithms, the innards of the machines had to be stopped and manually adjusted. Moore's Law (the observation that, over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit has doubled approximately every two years. ) proved true and computers became faster, more complex and more able to do multiple tasks. It wasn't, however, until the early to mid-1970's that anyone even considered taking mainframe computers into miniaturization for personal use; the idea that it could be done came from the fact that radio transistors were growing ever smaller and the small scale integrated circuit was introduced. (This explanation is exceedingly simplified - there's a whole lot more between points A and B than this). One of the early (relatively speaking) models of a "personal" computer (that term hadn't really come into full use in the 70's) was the Altair 8800 - which was purchased as a kit and you, the customer, got the exciting task of building it yourself. Out of that era of geeks and nerds wielding soldering guns and building their own circuit boards came a group known as the Homebrew Computer Club. The HCC got together regularly to help each other build computers, talk about computers, work on additions to or modifications of the Altair 8800's they had bought, or work out ideas on how to make these systems more useful and interesting (including writing software to connect to peripherals, create games and trade tapes of games they had gotten elsewhere). One of the members of the HCC was Steve Wozniak - today known by the eponym "Woz" - who built a computer in his garage on a single board in 1976. Woz not only created the guts of the machine (designing and soldering all the circuits himself) , but generated the BASIC software code to interface between the user and the machine. That machine was called the APPLE I. (Yes, the truth is, Woz was the actual creator of the Apple I - Steve Jobs watched him build it and had the idea to market it, but he had no involvement with the actual design. ) Approximately 200 copies of the Apple I were built and sold. During this time, Steve Jobs decided that he and Woz could turn building computers into a real business and it's at that point that the real Apple Computers, the company, came about. The impact that Apple Computers has had on the world of technology, especially in the early days on personal computers and their multitude of uses, is not hard to see. Nowadays, with iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, Apple TV and so much more, the company name is synonymous with cutting edge technology and stuff that makes the world easier to navigate. Back in 1977, the two Steves didn't know exactly how great their Company would become - they just wanted to help other nerds have access to their own computing ability. But Apple Computers would become one of the three to four companies that would create machines that would make personal computing accessible to the mainstream non-geek user. One thing that Apple Computers did well from the start was to have marketing gimmicks and tchotchkes available for workers and customers alike. Kenneth Silverman, an Engineer in Silicon Valley during this time, was also a member of the Homebrew Computer Club. Ken became familiar with Woz through the HCC and became an ardent Apple computer user. He owned an Apple II very early on and in 1978 was one of the ten founding members of the SF Apple CORE - people who got together to talk about their Apple computers, share programs, create new programs Ken in the SF Apple Core wrote some of the first software to connect a peripheral printer to an Apple II and teach others about programming, using and enjoying Apple computers. At some point in the CORE's early years, Ken became the editor for the Apple CORE newsletter, called the Cider Press. He also helped found the International Apple Core. Ken has another connection to Apple Computers as well - because he was so much part of the CORE and had contact with Woz and other Apple Computer employees, he put together his own company called International Datawares, Inc. Which did work for Apple and created give-away items for the company - especially pins and other small promotional items. In other words, he was (and still is) in a position to have access to a unique collection of items relating to the history of the company. This archive consists of group of items related to Apple Computers and advertising for the same, including: 1.) One pair of Apple Glasses in custom case (1984) : Limited to 30 pairs, Apple Glasses were commissioned by Steve Wozniak and custom made by a local artisan. Woz kept several pairs for himself and gave the rest out to friends over the years. Many of the pairs have been damaged due to the fragile nature of these glasses and they have come up for auction only two times in the last 15 years. These glasses are the epitome of (excuse the pun) the face of Apple Computers. Glasses are in Fine condition as is the case. 2.) Hell Froze Over Poster (framed) (2005) : 36"x24". : This poster ironically notes the point in Apple computer history when the company finally deviated from their mandate of not working on a Windows based platform - in order to make their new product iTunes available to a larger clientele. The poster is in Fine condition, as is the frame. 3.) Mission Impossible Poster (framed) (1996) : 20"x14". : approximately: Apple Computers made a very lucrative product placement contract with the producers of the first Mission Impossible Movie featuring Tom Cruise. The company then offered posters in several sizes as cross advertising. The poster is in Fine condition as is the frame. 4.) SIGNED Apple Lore Poster (framed) (2003) : 17"x 11". : The Computer Museum in San Jose, CA created this poster to commemorate an Apple Computers event on September 13, 2003. The poster shows a series of lapel pins created over the years (some of which were designed by Ken Silverman). This poster has been signed by Woz. The poster and frame are in fine condition. 5.) Apple Belt Buckle (large, multi-colored) (undated) : One of Five made. 2 ½" in diameter with large leather belt. Buckle and Belt in fine condition. 6.) Apple Belt Buckle (small, gold colored with silver attachment) (undated) : 2"x 1 1/3" rectangular, with thin leather belt. Buckle in very good+ condition - there is some scratching to the face of the buckle. Unknown quantity. 7.) Box of lapel pins, earrings, tie tacks, necklace, et al (various dates) : 23 individual items, many of which were designed and produced by Ken Sterling.

        Dada Germanico.

      Milan: Gabriele Mazzotta,, 1970. 7 works. Facsimile paper wrappers, wire-stitched, front wrapper lettered in black and orange. With the original wood patterned cardboard portfolio, titles to label on front board in blue, label ruled in yellow and green, label to inside front board printed in brown. With the publisher's advertisement laid in. Illustrated throughout. A little creasing and a few nicks to portfolio extremities, tape mark to front and rear boards, some foxing to wrappers, an excellent set. Limited edition, one of 500 copies, a portfolio from the unnumbered series Documenti e periodici Dada (five portfolios in total, including Dada Svizzero, Dada Americano, Dada Francese, and Dada Italiano). This portfolio of seven facsimile pamphlets, predominately in German and originally published in Berlin, Cologne, or Munich, comprises some of the foundational texts of the Dada movement. The works include issues 1-3 of Der Dada, published in Berlin between June 1919 and April 1920 and edited by Raoul Hausmann with George Grosz and John Heartfield. Also included is the 1918 journal Club Dada, a collaborative review by Hausmann, Richard Huelsenbeck, and Franz Jung; the sole issue of Dadameter - Die Schammade, published in 1920 and produced by Max Ernst, Johannes Theodor Baargeld, and Hans Arp; Dadaco, published in 1920; and two other issues from Dada journals. Contributors and illustrators include Giorgio de Chirico, Tristan Tzara, Hugo Ball, André Breton, Paul Éluard, and Johannes Theodor Baargeld. Italian scholar and curator Arturo Schwarz was friends with many of the Dada circle, and he established his independent publishing house soon after his move to Milan in 1949, printing texts by authors previously unpublished in Italy. He later donated his significant collection of Dada and Surrealist art to the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Dada Germanico is well-represented institutionally but commercially rare.

        The Loss of El Dorado

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1970. First US edition, first printing. Not Set. Octavo. Original burgundy cloth, titles to upper board in blind and to spine gilt, map endpapers, allow topstain. With the dust jacket A very nice copy in the dust jacket. A presentation copy with the author's typically terse presentation inscription to the title page, "V S. Naipaul for Al Murray". Naipaul recalls in A Turn in the South, "I was given the name of a writer who had been educated at Tuskegee, Al Murray. He was, or had been, a protégé of Ralph Ellison's, and he lived in New Yorkâ?¦He was a brown man, and older than I had thoughtâ?¦Al had just turned seventyâ?¦His sitting room was full of books and records. A moment's looking showed that the books were a serious collection of twentieth-century American writing in first or very early editions."Al Murray, a Tuskegee-educated writer on jazz and one of those interviewed in "A Turn in the South," would later say, "Naipaul is like a satellite in orbit. He's got an objectivity that no one else has, and he knows that the past is an albatross." Proper inscribed, literary association copies of Naipaul's works are distinctly uncommon.
