        Autograph Letter Signed, on his personalized "Dr. Seuss," blue stationery, 4to, address printed as "The Tower, La Jolla, California," n.d. ca 1970-71

      - Geisel writes in his print style handwriting referring to a "N.Y. Times" story about the Lyndon Johnson party. "To explain my mystifying presence at this shindig, I'm enclosing a copy of The Lorax.(my forthcoming book for kids about Ecological Problems).the original drawings of which now reside at his request in his library. I'm now engaged in expanding it into a T. V. Special for C.B.S. for adult audience as well as kids." He signs, "Ted." The book is not included. The animated musical based on Geisel's "The Lorax" aired on CBS on Feb. 14, 1972. The story formed the basis for the 2012 film, "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax," described as a "computer-animated 3D musical fantasy comedy film." According to "The Man Who Was Dr. Seuss: The Life and Work of Theodor Geisel," by Thomas Fensch, Ladybird Johnson's secretary had met Geisel who described this forthcoming "The Lorax." She suggested because of the environmental nature of the book, that it could help Ladybird Johnson's campaign in cleaning up the environment and would he consider contributing the manuscript to the Lyndon Johnson Presidential Library in Austin. Geisel then called President Johnson offering to donate both manuscript and artwork for "The Lorax." His offer was accepted.

      Albuquerque 1970, Loujon Press. A paper covered wooden box,. 48.5 x 60.5 cm., 12 mat size folio color lithos, with spiral. bound book, SIGNED BY HENRY MILLER, A LIMITED HAND-NUMBERED. EDITION OF 385 COPIES. FIRST EDITION.Very clean, crisp copy.. The book cover is decorated foil paper on linen wrappers and covers 47 [2] spiral bound leaves. With a facsimile hologra- phic manuscript printed on recto only of 37 leaves. The book and all the illustrations are housed in a wooden box, with a very large black & white photograph of Henri & Hoki having a nice chat while Henry sits on his toilet, in the elaborately decorated, graffiti covered walls. A few small tears and pieces missing from this photograph, but all in all very nice. The book is printed on thick deckle edge paper, it contains Miller's paean in rose & paint to Hoki, written and painted during their courtship. This is the most elaborate production of the Loujon Press, beset by numerous mishaps, with the total limitation falling far short of the initial number of sets planned. The remaining copies are now quite R A R E ! This also contains the publisher's large size printed envelope posted to a bookseller, with adverts for this edition, and a letter, signed by the publisher Jon Webb as well as several prospectus showing the printing process, cover of the box, photos of the Webbs [Gypsy Lou & Jon] and a large folding [48 x 63 cm.] sheet showing highlights from the book, with photos of Henry, Hoki; verso with newspaper articles on Henry from the New York Times, and samples from Henry's manuscript text. Advertising the various editions & limitations & variations. Below are extracts from the trade edition dust jacket notes. "A new book by Henry Miller is a rare and important literary event. INSOMNIA differs from all his other works. It is a love story. Always a romantic at heart, Henry Miller fell passionately, completely, but not hopelessly, in love at age 75 with a 25 year old Japanese singer, Hoki Tokuda. Hoki spoke some English; Miller spoke no Japanese. Hoki was a featured singer in a piano bar in Hollywood. Henry was a semi-retired and divorced, a lonely literary giant. He purs- ued her for a year. Out of the frustration of sleepless nights, out of a clear vision of himself as an aging romant- ic, out of his compulsion to court and marry this "young nightingale," Miller has fashioned a deeply moving, reveal- ing romance." This is his most fascinating insight to his own heart and passion. Loaded with great art work, drawings, photos of Hoki & Henry, and color paintings by Henry. Color scans can be sent by e-mail.

      Kyoto 1970-1999, Urasenke Foundation. Original stiff color. wrs.,ca. 18 x 25.5 cm.,very clean, lacks 13 issues:5-12, 36,. 55,73, 76, 81, from vol. 1 #1 through #88 the index, all in. original bindings, 75 issues, clean, some ex-library marks.. A LONG RUN OF THIS CELEBRATED JOURNAL THE RUN OF CHANOYU QUARTERLY: Originally edited by Henry Mittwer, then later by his charming daughter, Gretchen Mittwer until is end in 1999. . THE CONTENTS: This Zen journal of Japanese Tea Ceremony covers the green tea, ceramics, other tools & accessories of the ceremony, the tearoom, associated art objects, the appreciation & practice of the Japanese Tea Ceremony. Also covers various Japanese arts, ceramics, intellectual and stimulating essays, literature, history, and a wide number of fascinating subjects. * URASENKE FOUONDATION: The Urasenke Foundation is devoted to a large number of Japanese arts, aesthetics and cultural subjects mainly starting with the a Zen art, ceramics, Zen, flower arrangement, gardens, lacquer, poetry, painting, Noh drama, architecture & tea rooms, Japanese papermaking, calligraphy and far too many to list here. Suffice to say, that the CHANOYU QUARTERLY contains a myriad of essays on all things Japanese art and culture which relates to the appreciation of Japanese art forms. . Urasenke Konnichian of Kyoto, Japan is one of three major establishments that have preserved and furthered the rich cultural tradition known as Chanoyu, or the Way of Tea. Indeed, the first generation of Urasenke, Sen Rikyu (1522-1591), was a seminal figure in the transition of the Way of Tea from a medieval practice to its modern form. The principles of Chanoyu that Rikyu enumerated "wa" [peace], "kei" [respect], "sei" [purity], "jaku" [tranquility], have remained the foundation of this cultural form for over four hundred years. . The Urasenke Foundation was established in May of 1949, by the fourteenth generation master Tantansai. Thus began an unprecedented commitment to advancement of the Way of Tea, sparked by the realization that although the Way of Tea is a distinctly Japanese cultural form, its basis is a set of values and concepts that could be followed by anyone, regardless of nationality. . In 1964, Tantansai's son Hounsai Genshitsu succeeded to leadership of the Urasenke Tradition. His experiences as a student overseas and his friendships with many non-Japanese convinced him of the validity of his father's ideas. Under his guidance, the Urasenke Foundation has made great strides, especially in the international sponsorship of the Way of Tea. * THE JOURNAL: The journal has been the voice & illustrated picture of the organization and contains many fine articles by leading exponents of the arts, Tea & Zen masters, truly a calming and magnificent resource. . This work began in Spring 1970, the first 10 issues were bound in a different and colorful textile pattern. Then with 1971, they changed the covers to be buff stiff board of a single color, but the colors varied over the years, typically 4 issues or a year's worth in the same color. *** THE COMPLETE SET: Chanoyu Quarterly was issued in a total of 88 numbers, number was the last issue, and was a comprehensive index to the whole set. ***. TEA CEREMONY BOOKS: Please inquire with us for a current list of books on Japanese Chanoyu [teaism], some by one of the early editors of this journal, Henry Mittwer, and of course those by other tea masters. Gretchen Mittwer guided Chanoyu Quarterly for a long time in her father's footsteps. * This is a heavy set, extra appropriate postage applies. * Color scans can be sent by email. Images displayed may not be the actual copy in stock for sale at any given time; if you want to see the exact image of the book or edition in stock, please request this by email and an image will be returned to you by attachment. * * * * BUY WITH .

        The Kid from Soho (Original screenplay for an unproduced television pilot)

      Los Angeles: Sid and Marty Krofft Productions, Inc, 1970. Draft script for an unproduced television pilot. Perhaps the wildest association we have ever handled. At the dawn of the 1970s, maverick film director Sam Fuller was having trouble finding decent work, and apparently writing a pilot for the LSD-infused likes of Sid and Marty Krofft ("H.R. Pufnstuf," "Lidsville") was not beneath him. Those who embrace both Fuller and the Kroffts (as we all do here at Royal Books) can only imagine how wonderful such a series would have been. The first leaf describes the plot outline as follows: "A boy who grew up too soon meets a man who never grew up in the virgin West of 100 years ago. This is the story of the Kid from Soho, a tough 14-year-old Cockney, who finds himself riding with a legend--Pecos Bill." Also noted among the characters are Wild Bill Hickok and Doc Holliday, along with "seven beautiful international canaries who entertain in the Birdcage Saloon, [ranging] from 18 to 24 years of age." The canaries are an international bunch to say the least, hailing from Paris, Italy, China, Harlem, Spain, Sweden, and Atlanta. Orange studio wrappers, dated May 18, 1970, with story and screenplay both credited to Fuller. 106 leaves, mechanically reproduced. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with two gold brads.

        In Our Terribleness.

      Indianapolis & New York: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Inc.,, 1970. (Some elements and meaning in black style). Oblong octavo. Original black cloth, silver lettered spine, black endpapers, all edges grey. With the dust jacket. With the "removable mirror", colour illustration on page 1, monochrome illustrations from photographs througout. Light creases to extremities of jacket, slight bump to top right corner. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy from both the author and photographer, inscribed on the title page: "for Junius, Peace & Power [ankh symbol] Imamu" and "For Brother Junius, a Very Brilliant Brother, sifa ote mtu weusi! [a Swahili expression, meaning: 'all praise to the Black man'] Fundi". An important association copy: we believe "Junius" to be Junius Williams, a nationally recognised US attorney and Civil Rights champion, more recently author of Unfinished Agenda: Urban Politics in the Era of Black Power (2014). "In Our Terribleness praises African Americans for surviving oppression and remaining 'beautiful throughout.' The book is filled with pictures of common folk doing common things: riding the bus, walking down the street, standing on the corner. The accompanying prose assigns a sense of grandeur and divinity to the images as if to project common folks as gods and goddesses. The book even contained a removable mirror with the phrase 'In Our Terribleness' inscribed on it. The mirror was flexible so that one's image can be changed and altered. The reader could see his or her own 'terribleness'" (Scot Brown, Fighting for US: Maulana Karenga, the US Organization, and Black Cultural Nationalism, NYUP 2003, pp. 148-49). There is also an interesting and glowing appraisal of the book in the Winter 2013 issue of Aperture magazine.

        Ford concept

      1970. Gouache on composition board. Signed, "Dom Pacitti" Striking controntation with an early 70's Ford grille This is a dramatic, confrontational drawing by Dom Pacitti of the type of hidden headlight grille popular in the early 70's. Though the idea of concealing headlights had been around since before World War II, it only became popular in the mid-60's at the same time intricate chrome grilles were catching on. Here against a dark brown background, the proposed Ford (XL?) swerves to avoid hitting the viewer (seated on a curb) showing its bright new bumper, grille and right front fender as well as a glimpse of the right side. The diagonal positioning allows the artist to maximize the dramatic display of beauty and agility.

        Self Portrait: Photographs by Lee Friedlander (First Edition) [SIGNED]

      Haywire Press, New City, New York 1970 - First edition, first printing. SIgned by Friedlander. Soft cover. Photographically illustrated stiff wrappers; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs and text (untitled preface) by Friedlander. Designed by Friedlander and Marvin Israel. Unpaginated (88 pp.) with 42 plates plus the cover image (not reproduced inside the book), printed by the Meriden Gravure Company, Meriden, Connecticut, from duotone separations made by Richard Benson. 8-1/2 x 9-1/8 inches. Friedlander's Self-Portraits call attention to the complex, fractured and sometimes dissimulating interplay between various screens, shadows, reflections, lenses and the surfaces of the photographs themselves. Introducing this body of work, Friedlander wrote, "I might call myself an intruder." Following this, in Andrew Roth's Book of 101 Books Vince Aletti asserts, "Friedlander does seem to be lurking or barging into his own pictures -- a hovering, disembodied Everyman, at once here and gone. Like the ephemeral figures in nineteenth-century spirit photos, he appears as a shadow, a reflection, a pair of shoes, a barely discernible shape. Although there are a number of shots where Friedlander's head is clearly visible in a mirror or looms unmediated into the frame, none are conventional or in any sense flattering self-portraits.Mostly, however, he seems determined to remove himself from the frame -- to become not the subject of the picture but just another incidental bit of photographic phenomena, no more important that a shaft of sunlight or a shop window or a passing shadow."

        Johnny Got His Gun (Original screenplay, inscribed in 1970 by Dalton Trumbo to set decorator George R. Nelson)

      Los Angeles: World Entertainment / Robert Rich Productions, 1970. Final Draft Script for the 1971 film, "Johnny Got His Gun," directed and written for the screen by Dalton Trumbo based on his 1939 novel, and starring Timothy Bottoms, Donald Sutherland, and Donald Barry. This is set decorator George R. Nelson's working copy, inscribed to Nelson by Trumbo on the title page during the production of the film: "For Bob Nelson / who made this script have the appearance of life / Gratefully / Dalton Trumbo / Chatsworth / July 24, 1970." Nelson's notes are in holograph blue ink throughout, noting various props needed for various scenes (e.g., "Artillery", "war poster", "machine gun," etc.) Trumbo's classic meditation on the horror of war was first published in 1939 by J.B. Lippincott, winning the National Book Award (then called the American Book Sellers Award), and was subsequently serialized in the leftist newspaper The Daily Worker in 1940. Trumbo's left-leaning views, and ultimately his direct association with the Communist Party in the early 1940s caused him to be called before the House Un-American Activities committee, where, along with 9 other writers and directors, he refused to testify about Communist activity in Hollywood. The group, dubbed The Hollywood Ten, was subsequently blacklisted, and Trumbo spent 11 months in prison. Thirty years after the book's publication, Trumbo himself directed the film adaptation of his novel, which won the Grand Prize of the Jury at Cannes. White production company wrappers; title page present, stated FINAL DRAFT, with a date of June 5, 1970. 134 leaves, mechanically reproduced, rectos only. Pages and wrapper Very Good, well used but completely intact, bound with two tarnished gold brads.

        Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (Original screenplay for the 1970 film)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1970. Final Script for the 1970 film, produced and directed by Russ Meyer and written for the screen by Roger Ebert, prior to his better-known work as a film critic. After nearly a decade as one of America's most successful independent filmmakers, sexploitation auteur Meyer first reached out for the brass ring of major studio success with this frantic and most entertaining cult favorite, once described by Meyer and screenwriter Roger Ebert as "the first exploitation-horror-camp-musical." Three members of an all-girl rock band called The Kelly Affair pull up stakes for Hollywood in search of stardom. After reaching the promised land, Susan arranges for Kelly and her bandmates to attend a wild party thrown by Ronnie "Z-Man" Barzell (John La Zar), a flamboyant and very successful record producer. Z-Man renames the band The Carrie Nations, signs them to a record deal, and they're one of the biggest acts in America practically overnight. The nonstop train of decadence, drugs, and betrayal finally comes off the rails during a drug-fueled orgy at Z-Man's mansion, which erupts into violence when the rock mogul's darkest secret is revealed. Featuring one-hit wonders the Strawberry Alarm Clock, supporting performances by Meyer regulars Charles Napier and Haji, and a bit part from future blaxploitation icon Pam Grier, "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" proved to be Meyer's biggest box-office success [The AllMovie Guide]. Orange studio wrappers, stamped "First Draft" on the front wrapper (but crossed through, with the holograph ink notation "Shooting Script" written just above it), and dated September 17, 1969. Stamped as copy number 5073, with the holograph marker notation ".5" just after that. Title page present, with a date of September 17, 1969, and screenwriter credits for Roger Ebert, followed by story and treatment credits for Ebert and Russ Meyer. 183 pages, all but three of which are blue revised pages dated variously between 9/19/1969 and 2/19/1970 (the few unrevised pages being eye-rest green). Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus (bright, with yapped edges), bound with three gold brads. The massive final shooting script from one of the seminal drug exploitation films of the post-Summer of Love era.

        Cabaret (Original screenplay for the 1972 film, screenwriter's annotated working copy)

      Los Angeles: Allied Artists, 1970. Revised First Draft script for the 1972 film. Composite working script belonging to screenwriter Hugh Wheeler, profusely annotated in holograph pencil and ink by him on virtually every page. Included here are three unpublished, candid photographs of Minnelli, Wheeler, and other members of the "Cabaret" crew while on the Rome shoot of the film. From the library of Hugh Wheeler. Screenwriter Jay Presson Allen worked on multiple drafts of the screenplay, none of which pleased director Fosse. After months of rewrites, Presson finally turned the script over to her colleague and friend Wheeler, with whom she had collaborated two years before on the screenplay of Graham Greene's "Travels with My Aunt" (for which they were both nominated for a WGA Award). Under WGA rules, Presson alone was credited as screenwriter in the film's credits, and was nominated for an Academy Award (losing to "The Godfather"). Wheeler is listed in the extended credits as a research consultant. Wheeler is best known as the winner of multiple of Tony Awards for Stephen Sondheim musicals "Sweeney Todd" and "A Little Night Music," and not as well known as the author of dozens of murder mysteries under the nom de plume Patrick Quentin. A milestone of the New Hollywood Cinema. Winner of eight Academy Awards, including Best Director, Best Cinematography; nominated for two others, including Best Picture and Best Screenplay. No wrapper as issued. Title page present, noted as "(First Draft) - REVISED," with a credit for screenwriter Allen. 129 leaves, composite of typescript, mimeograph, photographic and mechanically reproduced leaves, with tan and blue revision pages throughout, with various dates in holograph ink, all from October and November 1970. Near Fine, in Wheeler's original spring binder.

        Andy Warhol (Stockholm Catalogue)

      Stockholm: Moderna Museet, 1970. Fine copy in the distinctive silkscreened flower wrapper; rare in this pristine condition.. Third printing. Quarto. Warhol's famous 'Stockholm Catalogue', published on the occasion of his first European museum 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).

        The Bluest Eye.

      New York: Holt Rinehart & Winston, 1970. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Toni Morrison on the title page. Fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket that shows a single tear. Set in Lorain, Ohio, in 1941, The Bluest Eye is something of an ensemble piece. The point of view is passed like a baton from one character to the next, with Morrison's own voice functioning as a kind of gold standard throughout. The focus, though, is on an 11-year-old black girl named Pecola Breedlove, whose entire family has been given a cosmetic cross to bear: You looked at them and wondered why they were so ugly; you looked closely and could not find the source. Then you realized that it came from conviction, their conviction. It was as though some mysterious all-knowing master had given each one a cloak of ugliness to wear, and they had each accepted it without question.... And they took the ugliness in their hands, threw it as a mantle over them, and went about the world with it. There are far uglier things in the world than, well, ugliness, and poor Pecola is subjected to most of them. She's spat upon, ridiculed, and ultimately raped and impregnated by her own father. No wonder she yearns to be the very opposite of what she is--yearns, in other words, to be a white child, possessed of the blondest hair and the bluest eye.

        The Devils (Original screenplay for the 1971 film)

      Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1970. Revised Final draft script for the 1971 film. Studio File Copy, rubber-stamped on the front wrapper. Based on Aldous Huxley's 1952 novel, "The Devils of Loudon," and John Whiting's 1965 play. A power-hungry Cardinal in seventeenth-century France seeks control over the city of Loudun, but first needs to destroy Father Grandier (Reed), the priest protecting the city. The Cardinal and his entourage then frame the priest as a warlock in control of a satanic nunnery, including the sexually repressed Sister Jeanne (Redgrave). Set in France, shot on location in England. Derek Jarman provided the futuristic set designs, as well as production design, modeled after the sets in Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" (1927). Goldenrod studio wrappers, noted as FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 20, and dated July 28, 1970. Distribution page present, with receipt intact.

        Gimme Shelter (Original maquette, proof, and final print of a variant poster for the 1970 film)

      New York: Maysles Films, 1970. Archive including the paste-up maquette, proof, and final print of a photo-montage variant poster for the 1970 film, made for its premiere in New York City, and posted strictly on walls around the city. A poster design that, unlike the final one used, conveys the chaos, bleakness, and ultimately depressive air of the documentary, and one that arguably influenced Robert Frank's montage design for the cover of the band's next record, the seminal "Exile on Main Street." A legendary documentary, chronicling the final weeks of the Rolling Stones' 1969 US tour behind "Let It Bleed," culminating in the disastrous free concert at Altamont Speedway. A film associated with the Direct Cinema movement of the 1950s and 1960s, of which the Maysles were an important part, but just as much the beginning of a new style of "reactionary" documentary filmmaking, wherein the events being documented lead the film rather than the film being led by a preconceived idea. Maquette: 18 x 25.5 (46 x 65 cm), executed on art board with tape, with its original tissue overlay, with some browning to the tape, but not the maquette itself, Very Good to Near Fine overall. Proof: 9 x 15.5 inches (23 x 40 cm), glossy stock, rolled, with a few tiny stains at the top margin, easily Near Fine. Poster: 29.75 x 44.5 (75.5 x 114 cm), rolled, on archival linen, Fine.

        Raging Bull. My Story.

      Englewood Cliffs, N.J.: Prentice-Hall, Inc., , 1970. With Joseph Carter and Peter Savage. Octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to spine, yellow ochre endpapers. In the dust jacket. 16 plates. A little bumped head and tail of the spine, pastedowns typically mottled red, but very good in slightly rubbed jacket, chafed at the folds, and with a few minor edge-splits and chips. First edition, later impression, letter code "T". This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper; "My Pal Russ, Keep punching. Jake La Motta". Colourful and controversial autobiography filmed to critical acclaim by Martin Scorsese, deservedly winning Robert de Niro his Best Actor Oscar in 1980. Arguably the most convincing fight film ever made. The film's dramatic and gore-splattered fight scenes did little to enhance La Motta's reputation as a pugilist, he was always thought to "fight with his face" despite his victory over Sugar Ray Robinson, and it certainly didn't present him as a fine human being - famously after the premiere he apologised to his long-since divorced wife Vikki, saying that he couldn't believe he'd been that bad, only to be told that "Honey, you were much worse." - but it did provide him with a post-fight career that most pugs would envy.
