      University Art Museum, Univ. Of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA 1970 - VERY GOOD. SIGNED copy of this unique catalog produced in an edition limited to 5000, with 100 numbered and signed copies.

Published for the 1970 exhibit at the University Art Museum, Berkeley. This is an "interactive catalog" with 18 heavy, interlockable cards, notched on all sides - allowing the "reader/user" to create their own sculptures using Pomodoro's constructions.

        [Transcript]: David Frost Show Interview with Tennessee Williams

      New York: Group W. Production (Westinghouse Broadcasting). 1970. Mimeograph sheets. 25pp. Sheets attached with staple. Crease to corner of first sheet, else fine. Original transcript of Frost's interview with Tennessee Williams shortly after being released from the hospital for alcohol and drug abuse. The interview is notable not only for Williams admittance that --- "This is the first time I've ever been on t.v. without the coffee cup or some opaque container full of booze, you know."--- but it was the first time he publicly alluded to his own sexuality: "I don't want to be involved in some sort of a scandal, but I've covered the waterfront." OCLC locates five copies. .

        Gay Power -- Volume 1, Number 16

      May 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. .

        Denver Verse

      1970. A privately distributed assemblage of the poet's verse from 1967-1970. Brutus, an exiled South African poet-activist, who had spent time in the cell next to Nelson Mandela on Robben Island and was partly responsible for South Africa being banned from the 1964 Olympics -- a sanction that helped create the strategy that eventually defeated apartheid -- was a visiting lecturer in the English Department at the University of Denver in 1970, and he circulated these 25 poems as "something personal to give to the people who have been so kind to me here...But also there is an immediacy about some of my verse...I feel strongly just now that to justify my continuing to write verse, it needs to be doing something." [As quoted in a cover letter to this collection provided by Karen C. Chapman, editor, the previous year, of Dennis Brutus: Letters to Martha and Other Poems from a South African Prison]. In other words, these poems represent Brutus' attempt, even while in exile, to keep his poetry relevant, and to continue in his role as an activist and agitator. Inscribed by Brutus: "Bob & Elizabeth Richardson. In appreciation, sincerely, Dennis Brutus, March, 1970." Also dated and initialed by Brutus, "5.14 DB." Loose sheets, with the endsheets being stationery with the watermark of the University of Denver. Chapman's cover sheet also provides a biographical sketch of Brutus. Faint sunning to the pages; else fine, and in the original clear acetate folder. We can find no evidence of any other copy of this collection surviving; a virtually unique collection of typescript poetry by a major figure in both world poetry and, in particular, the anti-apartheid movement among South African artists. A literary footnote: Robert Richardson later married Annie Dillard, a relationship engendered by her writing him a fan letter regarding his 1986 book on Henry Thoreau.

      Limoges, 1959-1970 - 4to. 25 Seiten. Alle an den Galeristen und Kunstantiquar Günter Fuchs, damals in London. – Hausmann beschreibt seine Rolle in der Dada-Bewegung und warnt vor der Einschätzung Hannah Höchs (»seien Sie etwas vorsichtig mit dem was sie vorbringt. Nach ihr habe ich ohne dass sie mich ›ankurbelte‹ nie etwas Besonderes geleistet. Ein Quatsch, denn sie war niemals dada zur Zeit des ›Club dada‹.« – Übersendet eine Abschrift von »dada ist mehr als dada«, ein Text von 1920 (5 Seiten). – 1964 klärt sich eine Verwechslung mit dem Dichter Günter Bruno Fuchs: »umso besser, wenn Sie nicht G.B.F. sind.« – Die meisten Briefe beziehen sich auf verschiedene Publikationen Hausmanns, die er dem Kunstantiquar empfiehlt. Immer wieder beklagt Hausmann die geringe Resonanz auf seine Arbeiten in Deutschland (»im Katalog der Frankfurter Collage-Ausstellung schrieb Rathke, dass meine Arbeiten von einem ›rührenden Dilettantismus‹ seien.«). – Dazu: Zwei Originalbleistiftzeichnungen über Offsetdrucken. 1963. Signiert. – Ferner: Ein Holzschnitt. 1959. 10,5 : 13,5 cm. Signiert und datiert. Rückseitig mit eigenhändigen Neujahrsgrüßen für 1960. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

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]
