      Simon & Schuster New York 1970 - Stated First Printing 1970. Bound in black cloth with olive endpapers and bright gilt lettering to the spine and front board. The top of the text block is stained yellow. Illustrated with monochrome drawings and photographs. A near fine copy, with a small black mark on the front end paper and some tiny hints of yellowing to the white areas of the jacket. No names, no writing, no bent corners, not an ex library book. Gorgeous strong binding, no stress to the end paper gutters, and the spine exhibits no lean. Can this be an unread copy? It looks that way. The pictorial dust wrapper retains the publisher's price of $7.95 in the lower right of the front flap. A very exceptional book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      - Two original letters from Julia Child, dated 1970 and 1976. The first, handwritten by Julia on stationary from the Barclay in Philadelphia and dated November 3rd (postmark indicates 1970), reads: "Dear Dick: Would that we were not so far away from you and Higbees, and from the Cleveland we saw so little of. Our warm welcome from all of you has made us sentimental about you, and we hope to come back again, stay longer, and feel that we can really have time to get acquainted. Please give our warmest remembrances to everyone, especially the Kordalski's, Strawbridges. Claudette, and all the good people in the book store. Our thanks to you, in particular, for first-class arrangements. Love from all of us to all of you. Paul + Julia Child". The second letter is typed on letterhead from the Ecole des Trois Gourmandes, dated April 2, 1976: "Dear Richard: We've just returned from 3 months in France, and I am enjoying your letter written I don't know when, but after we missed seeing you, to our most profound regret- remembering the good time we had with you some years ago. And now we most sincerely hope you are out of the ho0spital and perfectly all right- awful to be there having tests and not to know what the H. is wrong. We pray all is fine. You said you wanted an autographed book, so I am enclosing one of our paste-on slips, signed by both of us, that you can put in your copy. All is fine here with us, and spring is very slowly poking her lovely head out of the ground in the form of crocuses. Take good care of yourself, and congratulations on your new big job! Affectionately, Mrs. Paul Child". The letter is signed, simply, "Julia", and the mentioned paste-on slip is also included, a printed plate with a small illustration, inscribed in Julia's writing, "Bon Appetit- and all the best to Richard Gildenmeister", and is signed by both Julia and Paul. Included with this lot are a series of newspaper articles about Child, and an original 8 x 10 glossy silver gelatin photograph of Julia Child and Richard Gildenmeister at a book signing. Richard Gildenmeister is a renowned book dealer who maintained friendly correspondence with many prominent writers and celebrities through the late 20th century. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        NORTHWEST COAST HAISLA [NORTHERN KWAKIUTL] INDIAN HAND CARVED LARGE YELLOW CEDAR TOTEM POLE.

      Circa 1950. 1970 - The pole measures about 17" tall x 4 1/2" thick on a 1 1/2" high base. The totem is carved by master Haisla carver Henry Venn Robertson and was done in circa 1950. This totem is also hand-painted by Robertson. This is one of the few hand-painted totems done by Robertson as he discontinued the practice of painting in about 1970. Henry Robertson (b1932 - ) is one of the finest totem carvers around, and began carving at age 10 under the direction of his father, Gordon Robertson. Henry's traditional name is Ga-ba-baawk, which means Ten Ravens in English. In the many years that he has been carving wood, he has had many exhibitions in galleries throughout Canada and the United States. He has carved many smaller carvings and smaller totems and feasting bowls, but enjoys especially carving large, full scale totem poles. This totem features very finely sculpted imagery of a large bear-like creature in a green, black, and maroon face with mouth open and showing individually carved teeth. His arms are wrapped around a human-like creature with the face painted in green, black, and maroon, the body in maroon with black finger and toe nails. The claws and feet of the bear-like creature are also painted in black. The totem is signed in pencil on the back, "Henry Robertson, Kemano, B.C." Henry's work, although never widely promoted commercially has always had a strong following, and his classic carving style and fine attention to detail ranks among the very best of carvings anywhere. A fine totem pole with no flaws and one of the few hand-painted examples of the carver's work. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        ADDENDA for Lesson One to Lesson Eleven for Tubbs' Stock Market Correspondence Lessons

      C. Ralph Dystant, Dysco., Chicago, IL, USA 1970 - NO BINDING, Loose pages (3 hole punched), 8.5 x 11 in. white paper for text and green grid graph paper for charts, This 54 pp. ADDENDA (Original) is for the NEW 1970 edition of Tubbs' Stock Market Correspondence Lessons One to Fourteen that Ralph Dystant published in 1970. Upon uncovering this rare document we now better understand how it came to be that there are two versions of the Tubbs course reprint floating around. The first TEN Lesson course written and published by Frank Tubbs in the 30s or 40s, and the FOURTEEN Lesson course published by Dystant in 1970. Lessons Eleven by Fourteen were written and added by Dystant in 1970. Dystant re-typeset the entire Lesson One thru Fourteen Course for the 1970 publication, but for those re-sellilng the reprint for the last couple of decades, there has never been any mention that Ralph Dystant actually wrote the last four chapters and to our knowledge the existence of an ADDENDA for Lessons One to Eleven by Ralph Dystant may have been known by very few. It is clear to us now that Dr. Jerome Baumring, who originally owned this ADDEND knew, but decided to sell the Reprints of Lesson One through Fourteen Course with no reference to Ralph Dystant. We can only speculate as to Dr. Baumring's reasons, but it may have been related to copyright infringement issues. In this 54 pp. ADDENDA, Dystant attempts to update Tubb's observations and in many cases uses current charts to illustrate his additonal observations. For those of you who own the Tubbs' course you will see in Lesson Eleven that a 1970 chart of Savin verifies that Dystant wrote Lessons Eleven through Fourteen. We were also able to verify Dystant's November 1970 copyright and description through the Catalog of Copyright Entries, Third Series: 1970: July-December (See photo). Addenda Condition: Very Good, pages are lightly tanned and light shelfwear otherwise clean and unmarked. (no binding, loose pages only), Contents: Lesson One Addenda 8 pp. (4 pages of text and pages of charts), Lesson Two Addenda 4 pp. (2 pages of text and 2 pages of charts, Lesson Three Addenda 14 pp. (2 pages of text, 3 pages of charts and 9 pages of tables), Lesson Four Addenda 7 pp. (1 page of text and 6 pages of charts), Lesson Five Addenda 1 pp. (1 page of text), Lesson Six Addenda 3 pp. (1 page of text and 2 pages of charts), Lesson Seven Addenda 3 pp. (2 pages of text and 1 page of charts), Lesson Eight Addenda 2 pp. (1 page of text and 1 page of charts), Lesson Nine Addenda 5 pp. (3 pages of text, 1 page of charts and 1 page of tables), Lesson Ten Addenda 1 pp. (1 page of text), Lesson Eleven Addenda (A Ralph Dystant Addenda to his own chapter) 4 pp. (1 page of text and 3 pages of charts), also included is a chart of the Transportation Averages from 1958 to 1970 with volume and a chart of Market Barometers for 1969 to 1970 that includes Utilities, Industrials and Transportation -- end. 54 pp. EXTREMLY SCARCE ORIGINAL BY C.

        8 x 10 Art Portfolio -- September 1970

      Jeanie Black and Ely Raman], [New York 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.

        Archive of Personal Papers and Photos

      A small but interesting collection of items related to actress Vivien Merchant, the first wife of Nobel Prize-winner Harold Pinter, including an ALS from Merchant, a photograph of her from a play, and two photographs of Pinter (one an early image with their son Daniel). Overall near fine or better with some scattered wear at the corners and a splash mark to one letter. An unusual group of items which includes a hotel bill from The Albany Hotel in 1970, a Westside Health Club member card (which expired May 22, 1974), a 1971 bank statement from Midland Bank Limited, and a thank you card from Rowohlt Theater Verlag. There are also two pieces of correspondence from friends: including an ALS by British theater actress Viola Keats, who costarred in the 1974 Pinter-directed version of Next of Kin by John Hopkins; and an ALS by Merchant to Keats asking her to dinner. Of particular note are the three photographs: the first is a continuity Polaroid of Merchant in costume for an unidentified play; the second is a poignant photo of Pinter with Daniel from the early 1960s, as Pinter was gaining in popularity and long before the two became estranged; and lastly, a mounted black and white version of a photo of Pinter that appeared in color on the cover of the Saturday Review for April 8, 1967, with the stamp of celebrity photographer Anthony di Gesu on the verso, likely given to Merchant as a keepsake. An unusual and fascinating group of items. .
