        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.

        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."

      Northampton: Gehenna Press, 1970. Vellum Binding. Very Good binding. One of 50 copies of which this is number 49, signed and numbered by Leonard Baskin. Bound in full vellum and laid into a vellum and cloth traycase. With Mr. Baskin's frontispiece etching of a bust of Tennyson and four other etchings, two on blue paper and one in three colors. Leonard Baskin believed that "The book is noteworthy for its title page, enhanced by a wood-engraving of the title by John E. Benson, probably the world's finest lapidarian, a great stonecutter in a great tradition" [Gehenna Press, The Work of Fifty Years, 68]. This copy with foxing to the pastedown of the traycase, and to the front board. The traycase has some light soiling. It is noted in The Work of Fifty Years that "About half of the edition [of 50] was destroyed by water damage at the press in 1970" -- perhaps that unfortunate event resulted in the foxing to this copy. (Gehenna Press: The Work of Fifty Years, 68. ). Very Good binding.

      [Soviet cooking book]. Handwritten album, with newspaper clippings to illustrate courses. [N.p., 1970-80s]. 265 pp. 29x21 cm. Cloth folder. Fine. An interesting and somewhat naive document of the time. Apparently the complier of this book tried to include as many 'international' recipes as possible, often putting the originating country in brackets. A lot of the clippings come from foreign newspapers. The ingredients however more or less match the assortment of the Soviet food stores. As a result we can see the attempt to diversify often scarce meals using the available ingredients. The sections included in the book are salads and cold starters; starters; meat, poultry and wildfowl; garnish, potatoes, cereals; vegetables; fish; conservation of food; dough products; deserts, jams and conservations of fruits and berries; pickles and marinades; desert, beverages, cocktails; other. The section on cocktails contains some of the simplest cocktails imaginable like 'Cocktail with beer and tea' which is essentially the 50% of cold tea with 50% of beer and lemon on the side (optional). Cocktail 'Cubanito' reminds us of Сuban-Soviet relationship, however the author of the book was not familiar with the Havana Club rum, so it was called 'Abana club' instead. Altogether the book gives 30 recipes for cocktails, including Campari, mulled wine, 'Old Russian', 'Polar Night', 'Winter tale', 'Flaming iceberg', etc. The author gives us 20 coffee variations, half of which contain alcohol. There are special subsection of recipes from the stale bread (9 recipes) including the method on how to freshen up stale bread. Author included advices on table manners: if you are taking the sugar cube out of the bowl, don't touch the cubes near it; don't blow on the soup to cool it; at the end of the book there are the tables of the cutlery that are appropriate for different courses. It's hard to imagine how one should obtain different types of forks in the reality of deficit.

        Economist on Wall Street: Notes on the Sanctity of Gold, the Value of Money, the Security of Investments, and Other Delusions.

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1970. First edition of this classic collection of early Bernstein writings. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For William- To show Wall Street has some good things about it. Peter Bernstein." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Preface by Gilbert Kaplan. Peter Bernstein's Economist on Wall Street is a collection of writings from 1955 to 1970. The book is especially interesting because so many of Bernstein's observations reflect the most important issues of the presentâthe outlook for inflation and its control, the intricacies of monetary policy, the future of the dollar, and the dilemmas of household finances. Bernstein was also concerned with developments in portfolio management, including the new influence of institutional investors and rules for optimal asset mixes. He provides light touches, too, as he indulges in fantasies and philosophical musings over a wide variety of topics.
