      New York: Random House. (1971). First. First edition. Publisher's full dark blue morocco gilt, raised bands, top edges gilt, blue marbled endpapers. Robert Penn Warren's own copy, Warren Inscribed the title page in black ink: "After Random House became my publisher, Bennett Cerf was accustomed to sending me special copy (such as this) of each new book, autographed by him. This special copy was the last of such copies & not a present from Bennett. RPW." Cerf had died in 1971, and presumably was either dead or too sick to inscribed this title to Warren. A further contemporaneous pencil note by Stuart Wright (publisher of the Paleomon Press that published a great deal of Southern Literature in the last quarter of the 20th Century): "Presented to me in May 1986 and identified on title page at my request as author's copy. SW." A portion of Wright's Library formed the nucleus for Eastern Carolina's spectacular Southern Literature collection. .

        Alan J. Pakula, Donald Sutherland, and Jane Fonda on the set of "Klute" (1971)

      N.p.: N.p., 1971. Vintage oversize double weight candid photograph of Alan J. Pakula, Donald Sutherland, and Jane Fonda on the set of "Klute" in the summer of 1970. Shot, struck, and mounted by the film's still photographer, Bob Willoughby. The photographer has written at the top of the verso, in holograph ink: "Donald Sutherland, Alan Pakula, and Jane Fonda." With Willoughby's ASMP stamp (Pacific Palisades address) and reference number. Full provenance available. A seminal and substantially understated neo-noir, one of the great films of New Hollywood cinema in the early 1970s. Set in New York City and filmed on location there. After studying with Saul Bass at the Kann Institute of Art in Los Angeles, Willoughby began working as a photographer for magazines such as "Life," "Look," and "Harper's Bazaar" in the late 1940s. It was while on assignment covering Judy Garland in a "A Star is Born" that Willoughby's ability to capture his subjects' spontaneity, humor, and vulnerability, resulting in images that were far different from more traditional film stills, came to Hollywood's attention and earned him his first "Life" magazine cover. Willoughby spent the next 20-plus years working as a set photographer for every major studio, documenting some of most important films of the era and creating intimate portraits of some of Hollywood's greatest celebrities. Technically and stylistically innovative, Willoughby built the first remote radio-controlled cameras used on film sets, pioneered the use of the "silent blimp" for 35mm cameras, and created brackets to mount his cameras directly over the movie cameras to capture the same images. Willoughby moved his family to County Cork, Ireland in 1972, working on only a handful of films through the late 1970s and early 1980s, though he would continue to photograph, exhibit, and publish books for the remainder of his life. The stills in this collection were given by Willoughby to friends in Kilbrittain, Ireland just prior to his move to Vence, France in 1989, where he would remain until his death in 2009. Perhaps more than any other photographer, Willoughby is responsible for creating the the look of mid-century celebrity and moviemaking in the popular imagination, with his images printed in magazines literally every week of his career. But beyond being prolific, Willoughby's legacy rests with his ability capture the essence of the actors he photographed, as well as the films with which those photographs were associated. As Sydney Pollack said in his introduction to Willoughby's autobiography, "Sometimes a filmmaker gets a look at a photograph taken on his own set and sees the 'soul' of his film in one still photograph. It's rare, but it happens. It happened to me in 1969, the first time I looked at the work of Bob Willoughby during the filming of "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" Willoughby's photographs are in the permanent collections of ten museums, including The National Portrait Galleries in Washington, DC and London, the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Tate Modern. In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass. 13.5 x 9.25 inches. Near Fine. Hardy, The BFI Companion to Crime, pp. 195-196. Silver, pp. 411-412. Spicer, pp. 431.

        Otto Piene. Manned Helium Sculpture, 1971.

      - Als Reaktion auf das abstrakte Informel der 1950er Jahre gründete der kürzlich verstorbene Otto Piene (Jg. 1928) gemeinsam mit Heinz Mack 1957 in Düsseldorf die später international einflussreiche Künstlergruppe ZERO (»Nullpunkt der Kunst«), der sich später auch Günther Uecker anschloss. Piene gilt als ein Wegbereiter der Licht- und Feuerkunst. Gerade heute ist seine Position wieder brandaktuell - erinnert man sich doch gerade der Protagonisten von ZERO und bietet den - nur an Jahren betagten - Positionen allenthalben eine Ausstellungsrenaissance über den rheinländischen Entstehungsort weit hinaus. Aktuell wird Pienes Lebenswerk mit einer spektakulären Einzelschau in (und auf!) der Nationalgalerie in Berlin geehrt. Wir haben eine kleine Restmenge dieses Blattes aufgestöbert und können es sogar zu einem attraktiven Preis anbieten! 27 x 40,5 cm auf Karton, Auflage 100 + 25 e.a., nicht num.

        President Nixon thanks publisher James Copley for his “continuing support and encouragement” for “this Administration’s determination to meet our international commitments as we continue to seek a just and lasting peace” in Vietnam

      Washington, March 8, 1971. 6.75" x 8.75". "Typed Letter Signed “RN” as President, 1p, 6.75” x 8.75”. On pale green White House stationery, blind embossed presidential seal at top center. Washington, March 8, 1971. To James S. Copley, La Jolla, California. Fine condition.In full, “A number of recent Union editorials have come to my attention, and I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your continuing support and encouragement. I was especially pleased to read the February 26 editorial, ‘United States Renews Pledge,’ because it rightly underscores this Administration’s determination to meet our international commitments as we continue to seek a just and lasting peace. And, needless to say, it was gratifying to note the February 24 editorial backing my decision to suspend the Davis-Bacon Act. Pat joins me in sending warmest regards to Helen and to you.”Copley’s editorial followed President Nixon’s February 25, 1971, foreign policy address to the Nation in which Nixon said, in part, “I am keeping my pledge to end America's involvement in this war … What America does - or fails to do - will determine whether peace and freedom can be won in the coming generation … We will maintain our commitments, but we will make sure our own troop levels or any financial support to other nations is appropriate to current threats and needs … We shall provide a shield if a nuclear power threatens the freedom of a nation allied with us or of a nation whose survival we consider vital to our security … We will search for consecutive discussions with Communist China while maintaining our defense commitment to Taiwan … We know what our vital interests are in the Middle East. Those interests include friendly and constructive relations with all nations in the area. Other nations know that we are ready to protect those vital interests. And one good reason why other nations take us at our word in the Middle East is because the United States has kept its word in Southeast Asia…”A conservative Republican, James S. Copley (1916-1973) was publisher of the “San Diego Union,” “The San Diego Union-Tribune,” and the “San Diego Evening Tribune” from 1947 until his death in 1973. He was Chairman of the Board of The Copley Press, a newspaper chain comprising 15 daily and 32 weekly publications."

(Boston: Little, Brown & Company, 1991) writes, ???In 1964, Meyer Lansky finally laid hands on a legitimate investment that made some money. He bought himself an oil well ??? Under the tutelage of [old friend Sam] Garfield, Meyer expanded his oil and gas holdings. The two men bought more Michigan leases together, and they extended into Ohio ??? He was scarcely an oil tycoon ??? and never an oil millionaire. But thanks to Sam Garfield, he was successful. His energy concessions brought him revenues in the $25,000-$30,000-a-year range ??? confirming the impression that he sought to convey, of a retired businessman, living on his investment ??? In 1964, Meyer???s old friend Doc Stacher had avoided the worst consequences of a conviction for tax evasion by consenting to deportation and going to Israel to live. In July 1970, Meyer Lansky decided not to wait for the conviction ??? or anything else ??? Lansky landed in Israel on July 27, 1970 ??? He wanted to stay in Israel ??? and he wanted to live there not as a visitor, but as an Israeli citizen.??? On December 7, 1970, exactly one month before he wrote the letter here offered, Lansky requested Israeli citizenship under Israelâ??s Law of Return which gives any Jew the right to be granted Israeli citizenship. However, it denies citizenship to a Jew â??with a criminal past, likely to endanger the public welfare.â? A week later, in an affidavit, Lansky stated that he retired from active business in 1959 and was living exclusively on dividends from his real estate and oil investments, and that his annual income was â??roughly $60,000 (before taxes).â? The checks Lansky mentions Sam sent him were dividend checks from the Watson Oil Wells. In March 1971, two months after he wrote this letter, Lansky was charged with being involved in a conspiracy to skim from the Flamingo Hotel, his old Las Vegas venture with Bugsy Siegel. In May, Lanskyâ??s U.S. passport was revoked and in September, his application for Israeli citizenship was denied. â??Meyer Lansky v. the State of Israelâ? was heard before the Israeli Supreme Court and on September 11, 1972, the court ruled unanimously against Lansky. After trying to find refuge outside the United States, on November 7, 1972, Meyer Lansky returned to Miami and was promptly arrested by FBI agents aboard the plane. In a 1988 interview with Robert Lacey, Anna Strasberg revealed that Meyer Lansky had phoned her husband, Lee Strasberg who was nominated for the 1975 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the role of Hyman Roth in â??The Godfather, Part II.â? With her husbandâ??s knowledge, Anna listened in on the extension. Lansky said, â??You did good.â? Lee replied, â??Thank you. I tried.â? Lansky added, almost with a sense of humor according to Anna, â??Now, why couldnâ??t you have made me more sympathetic? After all, I am a grandfather.â?"

(2) Binder of documentation including Programming Reference Manual KENBAK-1 Computer (Los Angeles: KENBAK, 1971; iii, 24pp.); "Installation & maintenance" (photocopy; 8pp.); "Theory of operation" (photocopy; 9-42, 26pp.); original coding sheets, mimeographed purchase guides, reviews, stationery, etc. (3) Laboratory exercises KENBAK-1 computer. Variously paginated. Los Angeles: KENBAK, 1971. Original wrappers, spiral-bound. (4) Advertisement for the KENBAK-1 computer. In Scientific American 224, no. 3 (September 1971): 194. Whole number, in original printed wrappers. The prototype of the KENBAK-1, the world&#146;s first commercially available stored-program personal computer, so deemed in 1987 by a panel of judges, including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, at the Computer Museum in Boston. The stored program concept, in which both program and data are processed in an electronic memory, was the key concept in the design of the electronic computer as theorized by John von Neumann in the so-called von Neumann architecture. Because the Kenbak-1 was the first personal computer to apply this key concept in its design, it is an especially important landmark in the history of computing. Only about 40 or 50 of these machines were ever built; of which perhaps ten remain extant. The KENBAK-1, invented by computer engineer John Blankenbaker, went on sale in 1971, five years before the Apple 1. This prototype model of the KENBAK-1 is the very one used in the first demonstration of a commercial personal computer, which took place in May 1971 at an Anaheim, California convention of high school mathematics teachers. This unit was still operational in July 2015. "[The KENBAK-1] was created in 1971 by John Blankenbaker, working in his garage in Los Angeles. Initial sales commenced in September of 1971. It was intended to be educational and the professionals in the field were enthusiastic but it was a struggle to convince the non-professionals that they could buy a real computer at this price ($750), thus only some 40 devices were sold, mainly to schools. "The creator of Kenbak-1&#151;John Blankenbaker, had a long experience in the field of computers. He started the design of a computing device as early as in the winter of 1949, when he was a 19 y.o. physics freshman at Oregon State College, inspirited by an article in a magazine. After graduation from the college in 1952, he worked at Hughes Aircraft Co. in the department for digital computers, designing the arithmetic unit for a business data processor. Some time in the late 1950s he began to think there could be simple computers which could be afforded by individuals. "As late as in the fall of 1970 he found himself unemployed and decided to investigate what might be done to make a computer for personal use. He wanted the computer to be low cost, educational, and able to give the user satisfaction with simple programs. The computer could be serial and slow which would reduce the cost yet create the environment that was desired. It should demonstrate as many programming concepts as was possible. Because of the small size, the native language of the unit would be the machine language. Above all, it had to be a stored program machine in the von Neumann sense. To keep the costs low, switches and lights were the input and output of the machine. (Some thought was given to punched card input, but it was never developed.) By the spring of 1971, the logic printed circuit board had been built and the computer was assembled [Attributes: Soft Cover]
