        The Blessing Way (w/signed bookplate)

      Harper & Row, New York, NY, U.S.A. 1970 - The true first edition (stated on copyright page with the number line on the second to last page ending in the number "1") of the author's first book and the first Joe Leaphorn. Dampstaining to back of bottom of dustwrapper (not evident from front). Dustwrapper shows one 1/3" closed tear to top of front panel and scuffing to top of spine. Overall, the book and purple dustwrapper show as "tight and clean" (especially in the mylar protector). Might be a printer's copy, because it has technical information on type-setting written on the ffep. in pencil. A very respectable copy at a "respectable" price. Laid in is a bookplate inscribed to me by the late Mr. Hillerman. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        SIX FAIRY TALES FROM THE BROTHERS GRIMM

      [London]: Petersburg Press, 1970. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. 114 x 76 mm (4 1/2 x 3"). 32 unnumbered leaves. FIRST EDITION. DELIGHTFUL DARK GREEN PICTORIAL MOROCCO, INLAID AND PAINTED, BY PHILIP SMITH (signed and dated 1978 on rear pastedown), upper cover with panel depicting a stone tower on a mount of variegated leather, the moon on one side, the sun on the other; lower cover with a vignette showing a man's head in profile, with a palm tree and mountain of marbled leather in the background, strips of streaked leather above each panel and above the gilt titling on the flat spine, psychedelic marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In a matching green morocco slipcase trimmed with marbled paper. WITH 39 COPPER PLATE ILLUSTRATIONS BY DAVID HOCKNEY, 28 of which are executed in etching and aquatint; five in etching, aquatint, and drypoint; and the remainder etched. In mint condition. This is an immensely charming little example of the imaginative and usually whimsical design work of Philip Smith (b. 1928), the individual generally recognized as the foremost English bookbinder of the last 50 years. Smith graduated from the Royal College of Art in London and subsequently did binding and conservation work with Sydney Cockerell (1906-87), one of the giants of 20th century fine binding and book conservation. A past president of Designer Bookbinders (1977-79) as well as a respected author, Smith is a pioneer in the field. Since about 1959, he has consistently explored the potential of the physical form of the book as an alternative art medium. He has added several new terms to the vocabulary of bookbinding and has been awarded patents for inventions both visual and functional; his innovations in structural and visual design are now applied by an ever growing number of bookbinders. Our artist, David Hockney (b.1937), is the celebrated English painter, draughtsman, printmaker, stage designer, and photographer. An important contributor to the Pop Art movement of the 1960s, he is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century.

        Gay Power -- Volume 1, Number 16

      1970 - Newspaper. Folio. 23pp. Newsprint wrappers. Toned with tiny tears along the spine and the foredge, very good. This copy of "New York's first homosexual newspaper" is notable for its cover image from controversial photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, which may be his earliest published photo -- The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation in New York could not identify any earlier published Mapplethorpe photos. The image is a reproduction of a collage titled "Bull's Eye" that was produced during his final year at the Pratt Institute of Design where he studied graphic arts, and this printing predates his first one-man show held at Stanley Amos's gallery in the Chelsea Hotel on November 4, 1970. Mapplethorpe started taking his own photos to use in collages instead of using images from books and magazines because "it was more honest." He received his first Polaroid camera in 1970, the same year as this image. *OCLC* locates no copies. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Suitesurunjaponpourunlivrequin'existepas

      Paris: Editions Georges Visat, 1970. Prima edizione di 15 es. numerati. Incisioni sciolte in cartelletta (loose as issued in original portfolio). Ottimo (Fine). Cartelletta cm 24x16. Suite sur un japon pour un livre qui n'existe pas. 10 incisioni a puntasecca, acquaforte e acquatinta, numerate, firmate e datate su carta Giappone: cm 8x6,5 - 11,8x11,3 - 7,2x6,4 - 6x10,5 - 7x6,3 - 5,5x5 - 7x6,4 - 6,7x11 - 18x12 - 8,1x5,7 (Foglio cm 23x15,8) La collaborazione tra l'artista danese Asger Jorn (Vejrum 1914 - Aarhus 1973) e l'editore francese Georges Visat (Foce, Corsica 1910 - Arzacq 2001) fu favorita dalla mediazione di Roberto Matta. Infatti Jorn, trovandosi a Parigi alla ricerca di un editore, si rivolse all'amico artista che gli fece il nome di Visat, con l'assicurazione che lo stampatore non avrebbe di sicuro deluso le sue aspettative. Matta aggiunse che per incontrare Visat bastava attenderlo alle 10 di ogni mattina presso il caffè accanto al suo atelier, al numero 13 di rue du Dragon. Una mattina Jorn si recò al caffè, ma non osando avvicinare l'editore, continuò a fissarlo fino a che Visat, sentendosi osservato, si avvicinò per primo all'Artista. Jorn gli affidò una serie di incisioni, parlandogli del suo desiderio di farne un'edizione. Di quella serie di 10 incisioni ne furono stampate solo 15 copie, che Visat raccolse in una cartelletta e propose di chiamare "Suitesurunjaponpourunlivrequin'existepas". Il testo infatti sarebbe stato pensato ed organizzato in un incontro successivo presso l'Atelier Visat, appuntamento che si realizzò soltanto un anno dopo. Ne nacque però un libro del tutto nuovo, "Entrée de secours", con 9 diverse opere grafiche, stampato in 100 esemplari nel 1971. (informazioni in parte fornite da Yannick Minous Visat). Esemplare 9/15

        The Street Wall Journal - Vol.1, Nos.1-3

      Committee to Defend the Panther 21, New York 1970 - Set of "wall newspaper"-style broadsides produced by the Committee to Defend the Panther 21, the title (used also by the unafiliated S.D.S. journal) intentionally used to reference the paper's ideological opposite, The Wall Street Journal. The committee was formed in early 1970, comprised of a mixed group of CPUSA members and sympathizers, assorted socialists and left-liberals, with the aim of raising funds for the defense of 21 members of the Black Panther Party. "The Panther 21," as they came to be called, were charged "with a conspiracy to murder New York City policemen and to dynamite a variety of sites ranging from Abercrombie & Fitch to the Bronx Botanical Gardens." The set is comprised of three broadsides (apparently all published), which were distributed largely on the Campus of Columbia University during mid-May, 1970: a) "Why We Strike" (May 13, 1970), b) "Toward A General Strike" (May 15, 1970), and c) "The Panthers: History as Repression.Repression as History" (May 21, 1970). The message is two-fold: to prompt students and workers to go on strike in protest of the U.S. expansion into Vietam, Cambodia and Laos, and to take a stand against the oppression of Black Panther Party members, seeking the release of political prisoners like Bobby Seale. Rare; we find no copies available for sale in the trade (2014); 2 copies for Vol.1, No.3 in the auction record (Bonham's, 2014 & Swann, 2012). All three broadsides unlisted in OCLC, though we find an example of Vol.1, No.1 at the Victoria & Albert Museum, and another unspecified example in Harvard's collection of Black Panther ephemera. A2. Three lithographed broadsides, printed in black, blue and red on white and pale blue stock; measuring 43cm x 56cm (17" x 22"); illus. Two small tack holes to lower left corner of Vol.1, No.1; some trivial wear, else Fine.

        Photographie originale] Deux portraits photographiques "inconnus" et "ratés" d'Ezra Pound à Venise, circa 1970, par Jean-Michel Folon

      1970 - Deux tirages gélatino-argentiques d'époque, tous deux avec cachets et mentions variées de l'hebdomadaire "L'Express". 27 x 20,5 cm pour le premier, 29,5 cm x 24 cm pour le second, celui-ci avec des trais au crayon rouge pour son recadrage dans "L'Express". Les deux portraits ont été publiés, comme en attestent les divers tampons, dans "L'Express" du 4 décembre 1972 (n° 1117), le premier p. 154, le second p. 155, recadré. Dans le même numéro figurait également un troisième portrait de Pound par Folon, debout et tête levée, dont nous n'avons pas trouvé de tirage (mais connaissons le négatif). Ces trois photos, qui à notre connaissance n'ont pas été publiées ailleurs, étaient accompagnées d'un joli texte de Folon intitulé "Le spectre de Pound" qui explique comment il a pris ces clichés. Nous le retranscrivons intégralement : "Nous somme entrés dans un jardin très beau. Avec ses cheveux tellement blancs, son long corps maigre, il ressemblait à un spectre. Mon ami Fulvio Roiter, le photographe vénitien, avait été chargé d'un reportage. Moi, je regardais ce mort-vivant, dans une lumière inoubliable. Je me rappelle de la lumière, comme dans les aquarelles de Turner sur Venise. Je voulais le lui dire. Mais il paraissait tellement loin de ce monde-ci. Parfois, le déclic de l'appareil de Fulvio rompait le silence. Le temps s''était arrêté. J'ai dit à Mme Pound que c'était une situation étrange : est-ce que son mari était vraiment absent de tout ce qui se passait autour de lui ? "Vous pensez que vous le dérangez, mais ne vous y trompez pas. Au fond, il sait l'impression qu'il donne, il sait qu'il est beau." Nous nous sommes promenés dans le jardin. J'ai pris, moi aussi, quelques photos, il semblait qu'après tout ce soit une chose à faire. Et Ezra Pound a levé la tête. J'ai compris en un instant qu'il était complètement lucide. Son oeil de rapace m'a transpercé. Difficile d'oublier cette petite boule noire d'acier qu'il avait au fond de l'orbite, et qui vous jugeait. Nous sommes partis. Le film s'est mal enroulé dans l'appareil. Les images se sont superposées. Comme si son univers mental l'avait emporté sur son apparence physique. Mais il ne pouvait en être autrement avec Ezra Pound." Deux très rares photos du grand poète moderniste au crépuscule de sa vie. Ces tirages sont tous deux très probablement uniques et constituent un document exceptionnel. (Nous joindrons les photocopies d'après microfiche des pages de l'Express ou ces images apparaissent.)

"Trois filles ensorcelantes!!! habillez-lez ou dŽshabillez-les! selon vos gožt, votre humeur, au grŽ de votre fantaisie. 26568 combinaisons possible." Incredible. In Bertolotti where he states: "While leafing through Erotoscope, a ring-bound photography book by the advertizing photographer Jean-Claude Peretz, the reader can amuse himself by putting different clothes and accessories from various eras onto the naked bodies of three delighful models." And you can't say fairer than that.
