        [Photo Album]: 1971 Baltimore City Fair Rock Concert

      [Baltimore. 1971]. Oblong folio. Bradbound and string-tied black cardstock album with 114 mounted black and white photographs. Album measures 18" x 11.5". Each photo is 6" x 4". One photo has been excised resulting in some slight damage to another, evidence that two others have fallen out, else the images are mostly fine, a few have minor wear. Covers are modestly worn. A substantive group of photos capturing the hippie zeitgeist. Includes images of hippies cavorting at an outdoor rock concert at the Baltimore City Fair in 1971, with shots of local rock bands on stage. Activities and views include wild free-form dancing, snake-handling, baby hippies in the mud, hippie chicks with see-through tops, drinking, frisbee gyrations, dirty and shirtless hippies, etc. Also includes images of a hip looking African-American, Clarence Mitchell III, a quasi-militant alternative candidate for mayor of Baltimore in 1971. The Baltimore City Fair was an attempt to control political dynamics through public space/feel good vibeology, an effort made by the city in reaction to the Civil Rights era and civil unrest. It was news enough to be covered by The Nation and written about by Calvin Trillin in The New Yorker. Also includes many photos of teens at another event, apparently a dance in a high school gym, where the activities are confined mostly to dancing, mugging for the camera, and light- to heavy-petting and making out. A wonderful window into the youth of the late hippie period. .

        Ancestors

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. (1971). First. First edition. Fine in very good plus dustwrapper with a little rubbing and a couple of tiny nicks. Novel set in Ohio in 1818. Warmly Inscribed by the author to his fellow editor at The New Yorker Rachel MacKenzie: "For Rachel with love, Bill. June 21, 1971." Rachel MacKenzie replaced Katherine White as the fiction editor at The New Yorker on the recommendation of May Sarton. During her tenure at the magazine MacKenzie was noted for her nurturing and editing of, among others, Sarton, Philip Roth, Muriel Spark, and especially Isaac Bashevis Singer. MacKenzie's enthusiasm led to the magazine devoting an entire issue to Spark's The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. However, the magazine wouldn't publish Goodbye, Columbus as she recommended because William Shawn was too squeamish over the more "frank" aspects of the novella. .

        [Original Drawings]: Cavafy Poems

      (1971). First. Five original pen and ink and watercolor illustrations. One is Initialed, the others unsigned. Loose sheets, 9" x 12" each. Slight soiling, else fine. From a 1971 portfolio of drawings, at the very beginning of his career as a professional children&#39;s author/illustrator. Very nice.

His friend Maurice Sendak remarked that Marshall, who died in 1992 at age 50, was "uncommercial to a fault." .
