        8 x 10 Art Portfolio [14 Sheets]

      [New York: Jeanie Black and Ely Raman]. (1970-1972). Artist publication. A collection of 14 sheets, all fine, housed in a toned folder splitting at several of the folds, very good. A portfolio magazine created by photographer Jeanie Black and Fluxus artist Ely Raman, published over nine issues between 1970-1972. This issue includes a "wallpaper piece" by Black, a "stamp drawing" by Raman, six penciled drawings from Mel Perkarsky's Landscape series, an onionskin tracing by Wertheim, a double-sided "Real Money" piece from Dana W. Atchley, and a "found art" photo of two mannequins. Asked many years later about the publication, Raman commented: "I realize that our historical consciousness (or self-consciousness?) was notably absent. The issues were not numbered or dated, the contributions often not properly identified (or footnoted) and we did not include serious (academic) verbiage identifying what we were doing in the context of art. Too busy making art to write or talk about it." The lack of documentation, the generic title, and the seeming randomness of each issue makes finding other copies of the publication difficult. While there are several sets at institutions, individual issues are quite scarce in the trade. .

        Flesh Wager

      Cameo 1970 - ANN GRIFFIN (DEAN KOONTZ penname) - FLESH WAGER, published by Cameo #8066, copyright 1970, First printing. This book is one of a number of 30 or so books that Dean Koontz wrote for Cameo books early in his career under various pennames (like Linda Mitchell or Leonard Chris), and one book he actually published under his own name (Bounce Girl). Dean Koontz has since disavowed and otherwise denied having ever written such books (besides Bounce Girl which was published under his own name and the Leonard Chris book "Hung"), but the evidence is undisputable: The Library of Congress confirms that Gerda Ann Koontz (Dean's wife) holds the copyrights to this book. "Gracie" is one of the five names listed in the dedication of the gothic romance "Demon Child" (which Koontz wrote under the penname of Deanna Dwyer). All five of the first names listed in the dedication of "Demon Child" have turned out to be pseudonyms that Dean had used for this particular "Adult" literature. In an article written by Dean Koontz entitled "Dean's Drive" in the sci-fi fanzine Energumen #8 (6/71), Dean Koontz admitted to writing 30 of these books in 1970 (including "Share The Warm Flesh" and "Flesh Wager" - this book), along with Pig Society and The Underground Lifestyles Handbook (both of which were also published by the same publisher, Cameo books in 1970). One of the titles that Dean Koontz admits to having written ("Thirteen and Ready") was written under the penname of Ann Griffin. In an early sci-fi fanzine, Beabohema #8 (1970), Dean Koontz again talked about writing these books. The authors initials (A.G.) are simply Dean's wife's initials in reverse. One of the Ann Griffin cameo books "Protest Ball," lists the author's address as Harrisburg, Pennsylviania (where Dean and his wife were living in 1970). Finally, in Dean Koontz's writing how-to book "How to Write Popular Fiction" (1972), he refers to these books and specifically to the Ann Griffin penname. Book has very faint vertical spine creasing, no spine lean, no cover creases, no soiling or staining to covers, no former owner markings or used bookstore markings inside, no missing pages, no creased page corners, pages are flat and tight, pages are age yellowing, very slight edge wear, just a hint of color rubbing wear to covers (common defect due to the all-green cover). Overall a VG+/FINE- book of this rare 1970s Dean Koontz pen name book. I have a number of other U.S. and U.K. Dean Koontz 1st printing hardcover/ paperback/magazine appearances up for sale.

        Ben-Gurion Calls for a Jerusalem Home for the Bible Society: "every spiritual idea, for it to exist and exert influence, needs a physical structure, too, a central home"

      1970 - Letter Signed to Menasche Elissar. 17 Kislev 5731, December 15, 1970. 1 p., 8 1/2 x 11 in. Form letter on "The World Jewish Bible Society" letterhead. In Hebrew. Also see item #22355, where Ben Gurion reexamines a Bible story after discussion with the chairman of the World Jewish Bible Society. Partial Translation"Much Shalom!I would invite you to become a member of the council of the Bible House in Jerusalem. The proponents of the Bible House have given consideration to the fact that every spiritual idea, for it to exist and exert influence, needs a physical structure, too, a central home. The uniqueness of Jerusalem, the city of the prophets and the capital of Israel, makes it appropriate that a House be established in it to collect inside every commentary, book and creation that has been thought of and created in Judaism through the generations regarding the Book of Books, and every creation by the sages of the nations of the world that displays the influence of the Bible. The House, with its book collections and educational exhibits, will serve as a place of study for the lovers of Torah, the youth and adults who will come to it in order to increase their knowledge of the Book of Books and its interpretations. The House will also serve as a gravitational center for residents of this country when they go up to Jerusalem, and to tourists from the Diaspora, who will be able to absorb in it the spirit of the Book of Books. More details about the House's content and its purpose can be found in the attached brochure, which contains things said during the ground breaking ceremony.The initiating committee hopes you will agree to lend a helping hand to the establishment of this cultural center in Jerusalem. We await your reply.Blessings,D. Ben-Gurion [Signature]D. Ben GurionPresident of the Israel Society for Biblical Research"Historical Background Building a permanent home for the Israeli Center for Biblical Research was one of Ben-Gurion's favorite projects. He envisioned a compound overlooking Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives with a research library, exhibit and museum space, and educational facilities. Intended for the study of the Hebrew Bible, the research center would be the headquarters for the World Jewish Bible Society. Ground was broken on October 18, 1970, but the building was never completed.David Ben-Gurion, Israeli politician; proclaimed Israeli independence in 1948, becoming the new independent nation's first Prime Minister after years as the head of the Zionist movement; changed his name from Gryn to Ben-Gurion, "Son of the Lion Cub." Even in retirement, Ben-Gurion's crusade to strengthen and enrich the state and people of Israel did not end.

      Albuquerque: Loujon Press, [1970].. Folio. Quarto spiralbound book in foil wrapper and twelve lithographed broadside reproductions of watercolors, plus frontis and special colophon/title leaf, enclosed in publisher's folding cloth clamshell box. Fine. First edition, special issue (distributed ca. 1971). This present copy is one of twenty copies specially cased and distributed as a memorial fund-raiser for the publisher. It includes a frontispiece portrait of Henry Miller by Paul Giovanopoulos not included in the regular issues (1/30 numbered and signed in pencil by the artist in the margin), along with a manuscript note by Mrs. Jon Webb, and a specially printed title leaf for the portfolio (not noted by the bibliographers, who oddly denote this a second "edition," which it is not). Although not called for, each of the plates of watercolors by Miller is signed by him in the margin (generally near the facsimile signature), in ink, rather than pencil, as was the case with the more exclusive regular issues. This rather awkward production was ill-starred from its initial conception, when an edition of 999 copies was envisioned; reality soon sunk in, and the edition was reduced to 699 copies. In the end, only three hundred of the original wood cases were completed, and some of the more lavish deluxe issues - A through F - were issued in far smaller numbers than intended. A portion of the edition was then offered as the "Economy" issue, without the wooden case, but with the reproductions. Apart from the original issue 'A' (12 copies with an original watercolor by Miller), this is the most limited of the distributed issues, and the clamshell box is far preferable to the wood slide-case (with the famous photo of Miller astride a toilet) that accompanied a portion of the other issues. Extra postage. S&J A175k.

        A pen drawing by Robert Lenkiewicz with the caption "The folly of the alchemists. After Urs Graf, in J. Scheible, Das Kloster, Vol. I, Stuttgart, 1845." Not dated but probably executed in the 1970s. [ circa 1970 ].

      - The drawing is in ink (probably executed with some sort of fine marker) on a sheet of white paper, with a caption immediately below the design reading "The folly of the alchemists. After Urs Graf, in J. Scheible, Das Kloster, Vol. I, Stuttgart, 1845." The size of the image and immediate surrounds (as shown) is approx. 6.5 inches high x 10.5 inches wide (165mm high x 265mm wide). The image is drawn "landscape" on a sheet that is 13 inches high x 10.25 inches wide (330mm high x 260mm wide). Robert Oscar Lenkiewicz (1941 - 2002) was a renowned British artist, Hermeticist, and student of the alchemical arts, who was also well-known as an eccentric and book-collector. He was a regular visitor to the British Library and the British Museum, where he made careful sketches based on the illustrations and diagrams that were relevant to his studies that he found in rare alchemical manuscripts and books. This is one such drawing, apparently done after a much earlier woodcut that was reproduced in the famous German collection of early magical and Hermetic texts, "Das Kloster." It is one of a number of such sketches, some loose, some housed in a large folio entitled "On Alchemical Apparatus" that were evidently related to his personal researches into the subject rather than being "finished artworks" intended for exhibition or sale. As such it is not signed, although we do provide a guarantee and certificate of authenticity. Two small holes punched in the extreme left margin, neither of which are near the image area. The merest hint of discoloration, but over all in VG + condition and would frame nicely. A good opportunity to acquire an authentic and intimate memento of this fascinating artist & hermeticist, at a fraction of the price that one of his own finished artworks would fetch.

        [Screenplay]: The Silent Flute [Circle of Iron]

      Pingree-Panpiper Productions. 1970. Screenplay, "October 19, 1970." Foreword by Bruce Lee. Quarto. 70pp. Bradbound in printed blue wrappers. Near fine with some toning on the front wrap, some bumping on a couple corners, and the title written in the lower page ends as typical. The screenplay for the unrealized Lee film that was shelved after his untimely death in 1973. The film, about a martial arts expert, played by James Coburn, who must pass three trials to obtain a book containing martial art secrets, was to costar Lee playing different roles along the fighter's journey. The story was a joint effort by Lee, Coburn, and his longtime friend, Stirling Silliphant, an Academy Award-winning screenwriter (In The Heat of the Night) who penned the screenplay in a "European" form that reads like a treatment without scene breakdowns or camera directions. Lee hoped the picture would bring Eastern Philosophy to a Western audience, as he states in the script's two-page foreword. The film was rewritten as the abysmal 1978 Circle of Iron starring Jeff Cooper in the Coburn role with David Carradine stepping in for Lee, along with Eli Wallach, Christopher Lee, and Roddy McDowall.

        Mardi Gras in New Orleans

      London: Self Published, 1970. First Edition. Softcover.. VG+. Square 8vo, Unpaginated (ca 120pp). Stiff printed wraps as issued. Numerous Black & White plates. A little rubbed and soiled. Stamped by Demoruelle to cover and signed by him to the last page. More images available on request. Incredibly scarce privately printed book, with only 1 institutional copy and a few copies in private hands. Local man Demoruelle shoots Mardi Gras, but ignores the floats and performers to document the crowd, the streets, the drunks, the sailors and the families. A very striking, natural and individual document of a very special (and long gone) phenomenon, Demoruelle has an excellent eye for detail and a natural flair for capturing the somewhat ethereal spirit of New Orleans in the late sixties. Really the best book on the subject, and certainly the rarest.

        Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonne Volume 3: Paintings and Sculptures 1970-1974

      Phaidon, 2010. Hardback. New. <p>The&#160;sculpture and paintings of 1970&#8211;4 are the subject of this&#160;third volume of the catalogue dedicated to publishing the complete paintings, sculptures and drawings of Andy Warhol (1928&#8211;87). As authoritative and detailed as the highly praised first two volumes, here Warhol&#39;s&#160;sculptures and paintings&#160;of these four years are comprehensively catalogued and illustrated. Early in this period Warhol was concentrating on film and sculpture, as he had been since being shot in 1968, but by late 1971 or early 1972 he was returning to painting and developing his painterly, &#39;sloppy and fast&#39;&#160;style; a dramatic shift from his &#39;hard&#39; mechanical style of before 1968. The volume covers major sculptures, such as the <i>Rain Machine</i>, the series of paintings <i>Mao</i> and <i>Man Ray</i>, and commissioned portraits of important, celebrated and fashionable people of the day &#8211; many from Warhol&#39;s travels through Europe during this time. It is a time of great transition for Warhol, including developing his relationships with&#160;various media and&#160;the impact of his first purchase of a Big Shot Polaroid camera. His diaries and the photographs he took on travels and of his subjects enliven the narrative and give intriguing insights&#160;into his works of these years and his unique engagement with the culture and society&#160;of that time.</p>SKU: MM-40001360; EAN: 9780714856988

        Anonyme Skulpturen: A Typology of Technical Constructions

      New York: Wittenborn and Co., 1970. Hardcover. Very Good/Good +. Hardcover in dust jacket. 4vo. First American edition. Blue boards with white lettering. Top two inches of cloth covering the spine is missing. Binding is tight, pages are crisp and clean. No bumping to corners, no foxing, no soiling, no tears to pages. Dust jacket looks Fine from the front and back but half of the spine paper is missing and the front and back jacket have a long tear, so it is the Mylar jacket that is holding the jacket in place. Despite these significant flaws, this copy is a handsome specimen. The Becher&#39;s first book of early photographs (1960s) of industrial structures, lime kilns, cooling towers, blast furnaces, winding towers, water towers, gas holders and silos is considered by many their most important book. A landmark in the history of photography, the book combines documentary and architectural photography, and creates an aesthetic impact that has had an enormous influence not only on the next generation of German and Europeans photographers, but also on contemporary Japanese and American photography. (Andrew Roth: The Open Book; Martin Parr/Gerry Badger: The Photobook, Volume II.) Minimal text is in English, French, and German. Small bookstore sticker on rear flap, from the legendary Jaap Rietman art bookstore in New York. Unpaginated. Detailed scans available on request.

        8 x 10 Art Portfolio -- September 1970

      [New York: Jeanie Black and Ely Raman]. September 1970. Artist publication. A collection of 11 sheets, all fine, housed in a toned folder splitting at several of the folds, very good. A portfolio magazine created by photographer Jeanie Black and Fluxus artist Ely Raman, published over nine issues between 1970-1972. This issue includes a sculpture-graphic of a Campbell Soup can, questionnaire, and drawing by Raman; a photoprint by Black; drawing by Vivian Browne; a mock coloring book page with a picture of a bomb by D. Capobianco; an anonymous three-page paper doll kit; an anonymous four word poem; and a dated letter soliciting funds (likely a last ditch effort to keep the publication going before it ended later that year). Asked many years later about the publication, Raman commented: "I realize that our historical consciousness (or self-consciousness?) was notably absent. The issues were not numbered or dated, the contributions often not properly identified (or footnoted) and we did not include serious (academic) verbiage identifying what we were doing in the context of art. Too busy making art to write or talk about it." The lack of documentation, the generic title, and the seeming randomness of each issue makes finding other copies of the publication difficult. While there are several sets at institutions, individual issues are quite scarce in the trade. .
