        The Bluest Eye

      New York: Holt Rinehart & Winston, 1970. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Toni Morrison on the title page. From the library of Lynn Nesbit, who served as Toni Morrison's literary agent for a number of years. In 1965, Nesbit created the literary department for what later became International Creative Management. Near fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket with the $5.95 price and 1070 on the bottom of front flap, with a single closed tear. Dust jacket design by Herb Lubalin and Jay Tribich. A superior example with noted provenance. Set in Lorain, Ohio, in 1941, The Bluest Eye is something of an ensemble piece. The point of view is passed like a baton from one character to the next, with Morrison's own voice functioning as a kind of gold standard throughout. The focus, though, is on an 11-year-old black girl named Pecola Breedlove, whose entire family has been given a cosmetic cross to bear: You looked at them and wondered why they were so ugly; you looked closely and could not find the source. Then you realized that it came from conviction, their conviction. It was as though some mysterious all-knowing master had given each one a cloak of ugliness to wear, and they had each accepted it without question.... And they took the ugliness in their hands, threw it as a mantle over them, and went about the world with it. There are far uglier things in the world than, well, ugliness, and poor Pecola is subjected to most of them. She's spat upon, ridiculed, and ultimately raped and impregnated by her own father. No wonder she yearns to be the very opposite of what she is--yearns, in other words, to be a white child, possessed of the blondest hair and the bluest eye. "Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye is an inquiry into the reasons why beauty gets wasted in this country. The beauty in this case is black. [Miss Morrison's prose is] so precise, so faithful to speech and so charged with pain and wonder that the novel becomes poetry...I have said 'poetry,' but The Bluest Eye is also history, sociology, folklore, nightmare and music" (John Leonard, The New York Times).

        Lettre autographe signée adressée à son amie Carole Roussopoulos EDITION ORIGINALE

      s.l. [New York], 1970. Fine. s.l. [New York] s.d. [1970], 21x26,8cm, 2 pages et 1/2 sur 2 feuillets. - Signed autograph letter of 2.5 pages in -4 (72 lines of a small writing) on letterhead. Magnificent literary and historical missive on the revolt of May 1968. He thanks his friend Carole Roussopoulos (1945-2009) journalist and Swiss director for autograph dedication of the author her book. "... Of all those I know, it's the most badly written, but it's the most frank and fineest, and maybe it's also the smartest. " He had loved The Walls have Ears " ... since he reproduces in inscriptions the inscriptions whose warmth and eloquence - or poetry if you like - were communicated as much by calligraphy, The quality of the wall, the graphic material, the place, etc. - never however my hand on a fly, or inadvertently ... ". He gives his vision of the events of May 1968. If it took two or three days "... to enter the Bath of May, it is because I returned from a round the world, a solitary life And my second journey to the dead, the force-or the obviousness (or the reversal of the order of the words) upset me. "For a few days, from May 20 to 24, I believed in the existence of God: the system collapsed, and then, in the end, God does not exist. Has come to the point, Sauvageot, Cohn-Bendit, Duteil, and Geismar are quietly placing the points on the 1. Their kingdom is of this world, and for all, that is what they say in plain language, There was no miracle, not that everything was conceived by them, but that on the basis of necessary actions a necessary chain should continue, and that if it has been interrupted, it is not stopped ... " . Genet then comes to the dispute, which certainly exists in the teaching, but how many remain in the dispute after the university? "... The literary especially (except Pompidou) and who would perhaps be the first to accept the challenge, but the scientists, almost all go to Dassault, Matra, Rothschild, and then will carry the challenge in the laboratories of Radiocity, Du Creusot, Nickel of New Caledonia - or even Pierrelatte, but what UNEF does is pleasing Genet, who still blames Jacques Sauvageot and Alain Geismar before stopping, exhausted: "... I n Can not do more. I'm in New York and I've been with hyppies. Following a request to write a preface to the letters of Georges Jackson, a black prisoner who founded the African-American revolutionary movement Black Panthers, Genet had decided to leave for the United States to meet with them And take public position for them. Although he was banned in this country, he stayed there several months in 1970. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Lettre autographe signée de 2,5 pages in-4 ( 72 lignes d'une petite écriture) sur papier à lettre.   Magnifique missive littéraire et historique sur la révolution de Mai 1968. Il remercie son amie Carole Roussopoulos (1945-2009) journaliste et réalisatrice Suisse pour l'envoi de son livre. "... De tous ceux que je connais, c'est lui le plus mal écrit mais c'est le plus franc et le plus frais. C'est peut-être aussi le plus intelligent. Je veux dire le plus net...." Il avait aimé Les Murs ont des Oreilles " ....puisqu'il reproduit en caractères d'imprimerie des inscriptions dont la chaleur et l'éloquence - ou la poésie si tu veux- étaient communiquées autant par la calligraphie, les fautes d'orthographes, la qualité du mur, la matière graphique, l'endroit, etc.- jamais pourtant ma main sur une braguette, ou alors par inadvertance...". Il donne sa vision des événements de Mai 1968. S'il lui a fallu deux ou trois jours "...pour entrer dans le bain de Mai, c'est que je revenais d'un tour du monde, d'une vie solitaire et de mon deuxième voyage chez les morts. La force- ou l'évidence (ou inverse l'ordre des mots) m'ont bouleversé. La force - ou l'évidence (ou inverse l'ordre des mots) m'ont bouleversé. Pendant quelques jours, à peu près du 20 au 24 mai, j'ai cru à l'existence de Dieu : le système s'effondrait. Et puis, en fin de compte, Dieu n'existe pas. Pas encore. Ton livre est venu à point. Sauvageot, Cohn-Bendit, Duteil, Geismar mettent tranquillement les points sur les i. Leur royaume est de ce monde, et pour tous. Voilà ce qu'ils disent en clair. Ils disent aussi qu'il n'y eut pas de miracle. Non que tout fut conçu par eux, mais qu'à partir d'actions nécessaires, un enchaînement nécessaire devrait se poursuivre. Et que s'il a été interrompu, il n'est pas stoppé...". Genet en vient ensuite à la contestation, qui existe certes dans l'enseignement, mais combien restent dans la contestation après l'université ? "... Les littéraires surtout ( sauf Pompidou ) et qui seraient peut-être les premiers à accepter la contestation, mais les scientifiques, presque tous vont chez Dassault, Matra, Rothschild , et alors va porter la contestation dans les laboratoires de Radiocité, du Creusot, au Nickel de Nouvelle Calédonie - ou même à Pierrelatte. Il y a la recherche du CNRS, où il est possible de porter la contestation...[elle] est possible dans les Facultés de Médecine et dans celles de Droit. Va la mener dans les cliniques et les palais de justice. Sauvageot n'en parle pas. Il parle de liaisons des luttes étudiantes et ouvrières, il parle à peine des luttes paysannes... [et] des autres structures professionnelles..." Ce que propose l'UNEF plaît cependant à Genet qui fait encore des reproches à Jacques Sauvageot et à Alain Geismar avant de s'arrêter, épuisé: "...Je n'en peux plus. Je suis à New-York et j'ai été avec des hyppies. Je suis entré dans plusieurs de leurs [mot illisible] et j'y ai connu un vertige à rendre jaloux le fils de la pastoresse. Je t'envoie un journal qu'on vend là bas..." A la suite d'une demande qui lui avait été faite d'écrire une préface aux lettres de Georges Jackson, prisonnier noir fondateur du mouvement révolutionnaire afro-américain Black Panthers, Genet avait décidé de partir pour les Etats-Unis afin de rencontrer ces derniers et de prendre publiquement position pour eux. Bien qu'interdit dans ce pays, il y séjourna plusieurs mois en 1970.

        Be Not Content - A Subterranean Journal

      Doubleday & Co., Inc., Garden City, NY 1970 - Book appears very lightly read with a hint of foxing at edges, probably due to storage and the less than perfect paper stock. Dust jacket is intact with no visible defects save for a touch of tanning at the edges. Very scarce in this condition! "Being a skeletal history and chronicle of the experiences of a single, minor freak connected to a single, minor tribe of acid freaks in California, beginning in the early days of the Psychedelic Revolution, including a brief sampling of an insignificant number of individuals involved, their ideas and their ideals, and a flickering glimpse of but a scant few of the problems, obstacles, superstitions, fears, misunderstandings, joys, insights, loves and frustrations that they faced, manufactured and struggled with in their once pure quest for the elusive path to even more elusive enlightenment in a set constructed exclusively of intricate but obvious illusions of which they occasionally (with infinite sadness, regretting the revelation) realized that they were undeniably a micro-part." 336 pages + endpapers.

        In Our Terribleness

      Indianapolis & New York: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Inc.,, 1970. (Some elements and meaning in black style). Oblong octavo. Original black cloth, silver lettered spine, black endpapers, all edges grey. With the dust jacket. With the "removable mirror", colour illustration on page 1, monochrome illustrations from photographs througout. Light creases to extremities of jacket, slight bump to top right corner. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy from both the author and photographer, inscribed on the title page: "for Junius, Peace & Power [ankh symbol] Imamu" and "For Brother Junius, a Very Brilliant Brother, sifa ote mtu weusi! [a Swahili expression, meaning: 'all praise to the Black man'] Fundi". An important association copy: we believe "Junius" to be Junius Williams, a nationally recognised US attorney and Civil Rights champion, more recently author of Unfinished Agenda: Urban Politics in the Era of Black Power (2014). "In Our Terribleness praises African Americans for surviving oppression and remaining 'beautiful throughout.' The book is filled with pictures of common folk doing common things: riding the bus, walking down the street, standing on the corner. The accompanying prose assigns a sense of grandeur and divinity to the images as if to project common folks as gods and goddesses. The book even contained a removable mirror with the phrase 'In Our Terribleness' inscribed on it. The mirror was flexible so that one's image can be changed and altered. The reader could see his or her own 'terribleness'" (Scot Brown, Fighting for US: Maulana Karenga, the US Organization, and Black Cultural Nationalism, NYUP 2003, pp. 148-49). There is also an interesting and glowing appraisal of the book in the Winter 2013 issue of Aperture magazine.

        A Maze of Death

      Garden City: Doubleday, 1970. First Edition. Octavo. 216p. Thought by many to be his darkest novel, nevertheless perhaps as imaginative both in terms of identifying the mystery culture that must be explored never mind the cost all in the interest of science. When marine biologists Seth and Mary Morley volunteer for a new post on a world that has water, they arrive to find a leaderless gorup of twelve other colonists who have no idea what they are doing there. The satellite that is supposed to give them the answers; however, has malfunctioned. Then, the colonist begin to die. His works may create paranoia a subject Dick not only could describe perhaps better than any other since he offered suffered from it. the author hints there is something outside the text that is trying to get into it. Then, they begin to have the uncomfortable sense that they have been under observation as if subjects of an experiment they did not wish to be a part of. Bound in blue cloth, spine lettring silver, previous owner's bookplate on the front free endpaper, in an unclipped dust jacket with minor wear to head.

        Fantasia Graphics

      Brooklyn: Washington Wallpaper Co. Inc. c. 1970s - First Edition. Oblong folio, screw-post bound. One page of text followed by 44 pages of silkscreened graphics on various paper stocks, printed recto only. Sample book of murals and door posters for Washington Wallpaper Co. Inc., Brooklyn, presumably designed to be mounted as wall paper. The immediately identifiable 1970s pop-psychedelic aesthetic illustrates the domestication and mainstreaming of underground and countercultural visual trends. Images include Warhol-esque motorcycle racers, Robert Indiana style typography, urban skylines on silver mylar, topless "disco starlets" as well as intriguing "doorposter" designs that unintentionally evoke Tauba Auerbach and Banksy. Truly fantastic compilation of graphic arts designed for a short-lived maximalist-disco style of interior design. First page of text shows a few creases as well as pen notations and stamp marks, contents otherwise near fine; printed vinyl boards showing some foxing to interiors and tape residue stains to exteriors. Scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
