        I REMEMBER

      New York: Angel Hair Books, 1970. First Edition. Softcover. Near fine. 10 inches tall. [36] pp. Pictorial wrappers, saddle-stapled. Covers lightly rubbed, else fine. One of 700 unnumbered copies (of a total of 726) printed for Angel Hair Books by Chapel Press in Williamstown, Massachusetts. First edition of Brainard's celebrated prose-poem memoir. In 2001, Paul Auster called it "a masterpiece": "One by one, the so-called important books of our time will be forgotten, but Joe Brainard's modest little gem will endure. In simple, forthright, declarative sentences, he charts the map of the human soul and permanently alters the way we look at the world. I REMEMBER is both uproariously funny and deeply moving. It is also one of the few totally original books I have ever read.” Clay and Phillips, p. 179.

        Engravings By Rex Whistler For Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels.

      Published by London: Harrison & Sons for H. M. Fletcher, (1970). Limited Edition. 2 page Introduction by Anthony Rota. Number 8 of only 100 sets printed on handmade paper from the original plates with 12 plates coloured by hand according to the artist's directions (74 sets were for sale with one set on vellum). Folio. 14.5 X 10.75 ins. Original half green morocco with paper covered boards. Interior drop-back box holding title page, 2 text pages, Colophon and 25 plates. Gilt title on the spine. A Fine set housed within a Very Good++ drop-back box which has some fading of the colouring to the spine and some light rubbing to the edges. The Gilt titling remains very bright. The 1930 Cresset Press edition of 'Gulliver's Travels', illustrated by Rex Whistler, is 'one of the most handsome books ever to be published in this country (England). And the illustrations are ravishing.' ('The Twentieth Century Book' by John Lewis). The illustrative style of Rex Whistler (1905-1944), which eschewed the experimentalism of the 1920s, found its inspiration in the 17th and 18th centuries and so was well matched to Swift's classic. Whistler employed his favourite device of setting most of the illustrations within a highly decorative rococo marginal frame. A beautiful set of plates. Very scarce. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        ARCHIGRAM NINE [9]

      (London): (Archigram), 1970. First Edition. Wraps. Very good +. Small 4to. Pictorial self-wraps, side-stapled; pages double-wide and folded vertically. Very good plus to near fine. Light curling and creasing to upper-right edge of front cover. Minimal crease to rear corner. Lacks the originally attached packet of seeds. Else clean and crisp; bright and vivid. Final issue of this important little magazine of radical architecture. Proclaiming in this issue's editorial that "[a]rchitecture students are restless," the young Archigram group operated from a utopian futurist viewpoint, envisioning a psychedelic, Buckminster Fuller-inspired future, with technology leading the way in creating a better world. As Mike Webb put it, the group was founded "because we felt at the time that very exciting things were happening [in architecture], as indeed they were," particularly in the US -- but London lacked an avant garde and felt "empty and lifeless" [CLIP STAMP FOLD, p. 27]. ARCHIGRAM NINE consists of explosive, multicolored ilustrations of architectural projects, both real and imagined, involving a diverse array of ideas including the robotization of daily life and "whole earth" systems theories. Above all, the intent of the magazine was to indulge in a kind of inspirational reverie -- as expressed in the editorial, "the objective is quite sharp: to get things moving by the collective effort and dynamic of everybody who might read ARCHIGRAM 9."

        Overpainted Photographic Cutout Portrait

      New York, 1970. Very good. Amazing, multimedia self-portrait of the greatest surrealist painter in the entire panorama of art. Pictured in a suit with a gold cane, an arresting image, carefully scissors cut on the contours by Dali himself to 7 1/2" X 11 1/8" with attention and forethought, his right eye hand-painted as a bird clock (in the original Piaget sitting it was a gold rondure), his left eye painted as a snail, 2 typical Dali ants (beetles?) on the shirt collars, highlights in gold and traces of light green. Inscribed in black ink to A. Riskin with a pair of beaming hearts, and signed twice by Dali, once following the inscription and again on his upper left cheek. Faint creases at margins, hint of paste on the back, else very good (see this catalog's frontispiece). Archival mat, ultra-violet museum glaze, and gold frame. Ex-Chevalier (The Order of Arts and Letters), Martin Riskin, N. Y. Unique yet prototypical, and not at all like his usually seen post 1960 compositions, which were mostly thin and wispy, often careless, and produced as prints in editions for pelf, defying ethics and credibility (mass-manufactured collectibles for the gullible), which the pragmatic buyer was (and is) sufficiently savvy to largely avoid. But our portrait is not that. It's a one-off flash from the master's vision and whimsy, executed with exceptional care to be presented as a personal gift, enticing enough to hang in the finest home, office, gallery, salon, museum, or even throne room, and not duplicated elsewhere in the canon of Dali's work.

        Scrapbook]: Lassie

      1970 - Quarto measuring 12" x 12.5". String-tied green leatherette album with gilt decorations. Contains 27 color or black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring 3.5" x 3.5" with captions. Near fine album with some edgewear with fine contents.A photo album collecting newspaper clippings, promotion prints, shooting schedules, and photographs from the 1969-1970 season of Lassie. It appears the compiler was friends with the assistant trainer, Sam Williamson, and he is referred to throughout the album. The album opens with a large promotion photo of Lassie with a paw print. This is followed by newspaper clippings with handwritten notes and addendums to the articles. The season that is depicted in this scrapbook featured Lassie working with the U.S. Forest Rangers and one image in a clipping shows him posed with an actor playing the ranger with a handwritten caption which reads, "unfortunately Lassie and Jack do not have a mutual love, and the hardest order for Lassie to preform is to show affection for Jack." Other clippings discuss Lassie's trips to Cortez, New Mexico, visits to children's hospitals, and promotional trips across the country. One page reads that although Lassie is referred to as a "she" the dog was actually a "he" and the pronouns are corrected throughout. One note reads, "Lassie #4 is a male, others are retired. He has a stand-in Lassie that does a lot of the scenes like swimming in the water -- which Lassie dislike, also to save Lassie from danger." A section of 7 pages includes a detailed shooting schedule for an episode which ends "end of 76th day." Towards the end of the album there are polaroids of Lassie, his trainer Sam, and two fans Thelma and Paul in a hotel room. Some of the photos show Lassie cuddled up next to Thelma and Paul, one of which shows him kissing Thelma. Thelma's travel tickets are also featured on a page with a tab that reads "Thanksgiving 1970." It seems that Thelma was friends with Sam Williamson and may have compiled the album.

        [Scrapbook]: Lassie

      1970. Near Fine. Quarto measuring 12" x 12.5". String-tied green leatherette album with gilt decorations. Contains 27 color or black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring 3.5" x 3.5" with captions. Near fine album with some edgewear with fine contents.A photo album collecting newspaper clippings, promotion prints, shooting schedules, and photographs from the 1969-1970 season of Lassie. It appears the compiler was friends with the assistant trainer, Sam Williamson, and he is referred to throughout the album. The album opens with a large promotion photo of Lassie with a paw print. This is followed by newspaper clippings with handwritten notes and addendums to the articles. The season that is depicted in this scrapbook featured Lassie working with the U.S. Forest Rangers and one image in a clipping shows him posed with an actor playing the ranger with a handwritten caption which reads, "unfortunately Lassie and Jack do not have a mutual love, and the hardest order for Lassie to preform is to show affection for Jack." Other clippings discuss Lassie's trips to Cortez, New Mexico, visits to children's hospitals, and promotional trips across the country. One page reads that although Lassie is referred to as a "she" the dog was actually a "he" and the pronouns are corrected throughout. One note reads, "Lassie #4 is a male, others are retired. He has a stand-in Lassie that does a lot of the scenes like swimming in the water -- which Lassie dislike, also to save Lassie from danger." A section of 7 pages includes a detailed shooting schedule for an episode which ends "end of 76th day." Towards the end of the album there are polaroids of Lassie, his trainer Sam, and two fans Thelma and Paul in a hotel room. Some of the photos show Lassie cuddled up next to Thelma and Paul, one of which shows him kissing Thelma. Thelma's travel tickets are also featured on a page with a tab that reads "Thanksgiving 1970." It seems that Thelma was friends with Sam Williamson and may have compiled the album. The final pages show Thelma and her family at a party in late 1970.Between 1964 and 1970 the Lassie storyline took place with the U.S. Forest Service which are referred to as the "Ranger years." The dog who played Lassie was the son of the original dog all of which were owned and trained by Rudd Weatherwax.

        I REMEMBER

      Angel Hair Books, New York 1970 - 10 inches tall. [36] pp. Pictorial wrappers, saddle-stapled. Covers lightly rubbed, else fine. One of 700 unnumbered copies (of a total of 726) printed for Angel Hair Books by Chapel Press in Williamstown, Massachusetts. First edition of Brainard's celebrated prose-poem memoir. In 2001, Paul Auster called it "a masterpiece": "One by one, the so-called important books of our time will be forgotten, but Joe Brainard's modest little gem will endure. In simple, forthright, declarative sentences, he charts the map of the human soul and permanently alters the way we look at the world. I REMEMBER is both uproariously funny and deeply moving. It is also one of the few totally original books I have ever read." Clay and Phillips, p. 179. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

The opportunities of the title are reflected in the openness of the vacant lots, a blank slate on which one can project their fantasies of a different life, a sort of synecdoche of Los Angeles. As Peter Schjeldahl said of Ruscha's work, "To know the art of Ed Ruscha, you should know something about Los Angeles, and the reverse: knowing something about Ruscha's art with help you with Los Angeles."
