        Original lithographed poster: Venti anni di lotta per abbattere la dittatura - Bandiere rosse contro il fascismo ["Twenty years of struggle against dictatorship - Red Flags Against Fascism!"]

      Roma: Partito Comunista Italiano / Editoriali Fratelli Spada, 1971. First Edition. Lithographed poster (offset) in three colors; 100cm x 70cm (ca 40" x 28"); on heavy paper. Minor toning; light creases at margins; Near Fine - Grade A/A-. & & A bit of a puzzle: the poster appears to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the formation of the Associazione Bandiera Rossa, an Italian Trotskyist group; but the poster bears the imprint of the PCI, the main-line Marxist-Leninist party in Italy -- an ideological implausibility, even within the chaotic confines of Italian Marxism. Adding further to the confusion is a quotation from Antonio Gramsci (founder of the PCI) in upper right. In any case, a terrific graphic, attributed here to Luciano Prati (whose name we encounter on a few late-70s Italian film posters, but nowhere else). Duke University appears to be the only North American institution to hold a catalogued copy of this work.

        HOYO ("EMBRACE")

      Tokyo, Japan: Shashin Hyoronsha Publishing House, 1971. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Tokyo, Japan: Shashin Hyoronsha Publishing House, 1971. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 96 pages. Artist Book. One of the greatest erotic art photography books of the 20th century. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. There is no ISBN. The book is now very rare. A brilliant production by Eikoh Hosoe: Oversize-volume format. Cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Eikoh Hosoe. Preface by Yukio Mishima, the greatest Japanese novelist of the 20th century. Mishima famously collaborated with Hosoe on "Ba Ra Kei". Cardboard slipcase with titles printed on black paper that is pasted on the slipcase. Printed in gravure on thick uncoated stock paper by The Nissha Printing Company in Tokyo, Japan to absolutely the highest standards. In pink DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents one of the most stunning and influential explorations of the nude in the history of art and photography. Abstracted, choreographed down to the smallest detail, and yet sensuous (made palpably so by the exquisite gravure printing) , these nudes will not be surpassed. As the title suggests, every image is an embrace, showing a completely nude and physically intimate male and female couple, whose interest to us is the line formed by the closeness of their bodies, which remain discrete and never become one despite their proximity. They are enacting (if not actually engaged in) sexual intercourse, but Hosoe&#39;s goal (and genius) is to make us see and think not about sex but about beauty. The erotic is ultimately an aesthetic, not a sexual, experience. No one can justifiably think of these images as pornographic, which is about arousal. Everyone will see how ravishingly beautiful they are. A "must-have" title for Eikoh Hosoe and erotic art photography book collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and placed in pencil on the half-title page by the artist/photographer: "Eikoh Hosoe Tokyo". This title is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and placed copy available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 62 gravure plates. "Ba Ra Kei" and "Kamaitachi" were selected as two of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest artist/photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EIKOH HOSOE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

        The Intimate Paul & Linda McCartney-Malibu

      A remarkable, original Kodachrome II color photograph print of Paul & Linda McCartney from the April 1971 day shoot in Malibu, but not the widely circulated image used for the iconic, April 16, 1971 LIFE magazine cover. This is another shot, private in feeling and shot close-up with greater detail, believed never printed for sale or reproduced in a book. The 10.875 x 13.875 inches photograph with its beautiful color composition and moving contrasts of emotional openness and reticence communicates Paul and Linda's great mutual love in a way never surpassed. Offered loose as given in the original Kodak color enlargement board folder. AVAILABILITY: Very Rare and Highly Notable. Because of its extraordinary intimacy and emotional nakedness, this far more interesting shot was judged by Paul & Linda as not suitable for public circulation. It was exclusively printed for them 3 months after the shoot; number of prints is unknown, but certainly, a very small number, probably in the range of 5-10. PROVENANCE: Print given to Vincent Romeo, manager to Paul McCartney; subsequently purchased at the first auction of Beatles and McCartney memorabilia from his collection. PRINT DETAIL: Never mounted. No owner markings. 2 scratches, top right corner, far removed from the duo portrait composition: 1) size of a small grain of sand: 2) .3 cm in a half-ring. Scrutinized at extreme close-up in very bright light, light much brighter than it would be displayed in, one can see a slight dulling of Paul's hair on the left side of his head, almost certainly from cleaning, for there has been no other deterioration of the colors in the print. With ordinary viewing conditions, the fault won't be seen. Top tips with very slight wear: outer edges with a light and gentle upward bend: both will vanish when mounted. Rear with finger smudge and a small black bar spot; otherwise clean, and marks can only be seen from the rear. FOLDER CONDITION: Good. DETAIL: Outside crack along fold-over doesn't continue in: light edge wear: some soiling: auction number on upper cover. PHOTOGRAPH PRINT SIZE: 10.875 x 13.875 inches or 276 x 353 mm. FOLDER SIZE: 11.9375 x 14.875 inches. THE PHOTOGRAPH: Photographs at the Malibu shoot were taken by Henry Diltz, the noted photographer of rock 'n' roll musicians and the 60's-70's California rock music scene, using a Pentax SLR 35mm camera with Kodachrome II film. Shot in early April of 1971, (end of the first week-beginning of the second), the photograph was printed from the transparency in July 1971 by Kodak using the K-12 Development Process: Kodak's red stamped seal on the back of the photograph states made by Kodak, July 71R. The day shoot is well documented. The couple was being introduced to a worldwide audience prior to the release of RAM, Paul McCartney's second solo record album after the Beatles' breakup, and the first to contain credited musical contributions from Linda McCartney. Shots were taken by the garden near the pool at the Malibu beach house rented by Paul & Linda, there with their 2 girls, Heather (by Linda's first marriage) and Mary (b. 1969, their first child together). Linda was 3 months pregnant with Stella. Recording had been finished in March and publicity was proceeding for its mid-May release. Paul and Linda were working on the illustrated RAM songbook. Henry Diltz, already a well-known photographer of rock musicians, was asked to come do his "fly on the wall thing". (He had first met Linda in casual come-upon fashion in the summer of 1966 at the Modern Age Photo Lab in New York.) Shot around the same time of day as the LIFE cover shot, Paul & Linda are dressed in the same casual clothes and in the background is a cluster of the same yellow flowers, now just out of focus. DILTZ: A leading rock photographer, he was the official photographer of Woodstock and the Monterey Pop Festivals and is known for his friendships with many musicians, especially with Crosby, Stills & Nash. Photographs for more than 250 album sleeves are credited to him, including the Doors' "Morrison Hotel", James Taylor's "Sweet Baby James", Jackson Browne's eponymous debut, the Eagles' "Desperado", and the first album of Crosby, Stills & Nash. Graham Nash has written the foreword for the comprehensive book on his work, "Henry Diltz: Rock On: The Photographs". IMAGES: by request. CATEGORY: Rock and Roll Memorabilia: photographs.

        Sanrizuka 1969-1971

      Tokyo: Nora-sha, 1971. Light foxing to the edges, small vertical crease down the spine; near fine in illustrated wrappers in the very good publisher&#39;s card slipcase (a little darkened).. First Edition. Quarto. SIGNED by Kazuo Kitai in English and Japanese. A documentation of the Sanrizuka farmers&#39; opposition and resistance to the government&#39;s plan to build Narita airport. The most powerful example we have seen of an entire subset of little-known Japanese photobooks that deal with this struggle. Although not an official member of Provoke, Kitai was a pioneer in the photographic style championed by the group. His first book, Resistance, published in 1965, was greatly admired by the founders of Provoke, Daido Moriyama and Takuma Nakahira.

      o. O., Edition Herzog, 1971 - 4°, Kart-Kassette mit 10 losen, gefalzten Bögen (innen links ein Text, rechts ein eingeklebter, handkolorierter Siebdruck), 4 Orig.-Tuschzeichnungen., Tadell. Die Kassette ist im Impressum mit E. A. bezeichnet. Die Siebdrucke vom Künstler signiert und ebenfalls mit e. a. (épreuve d?artiste) bezeichnet. Die Blätter zeigen wichtige Bauten u. klassische Ansichten der Stadt, eingebunden in die Phantasie (Ketten u. Reissverschlüsse) des Künstlers. Die Texte stammen aus der Schreibmaschine des «Werbetexters» Gerald Lechner. Beiliegend vier Orig-Tuschzeichnungen (je 2 kleine Klebspuren auf Rückseite) mit Land-Art-Projekten des Berner Künstlers u. Bildhauers (geb. 1927). Die Mappe wurde für die Ausstellung «Swiss Avant Garde», die 1971 in New York stattfand, geschaffen. Beteiligung an der Tell 73, an der Biennale di Venezia 1976. - Peter Travaglini (*1927) beginnt als Maler gegenständlicher Richtung, nähert sich in den 60er Jahren tachistischen und abstrakt-expressiven Zeitströmungen. Der Auftrag für ein monumentales Betonglasfenster für die römisch-katholische Kirche Lyss wird 1958 zum Auftakt einer langen Reihe öffentlicher Auftragswerke. Die souveräne Beherrschung unterschiedlichster Techniken und Materialien wie Bronze, Aluminium und Holz, Beton, Granit und Backstein bildet die Grundlage für Travaglinis Werke, und er zieht bewusst keine Grenze zwischen freier Kunst und Kunsthandwerk. Der symbolhafte Kontrast zwischen Stein und Wasser kommt in über 60 Brunnenanlagen immer neu zur Geltung. Auftragskunst wird zum zentralen Anliegen Travaglinis, steht aber stets in enger Wechselwirkung mit dem freien Schaffen; davon zeugen die vielen Arbeitsbücher. Die Spiel- und Experimentierfreude des Künstlers führt in die unterschiedlichsten Richtungen: Teppiche, Fahnen, Keramik, Medaillen, Münzen, Pins und grafische Gestaltungen. 1200 gr.

        [Manuscript]: Hart Cooper

      [1971]. Manuscript. Loose quarto sheets printed with black and blue mimeograph ink. 513pp, and 172pp., plus a two-page list of characters and two copies of an excised chapter. A bit of wear to the corner of the first dozen sheets, near fine. Hart Cooper is the unpublished "spiritual autobiography" written by Thackara, a Los Angeles-based author, in 1971, more than a decade before the publication of his first book in 1984, America's Children. According to the author, Hart Cooper was particularly important in "creating the trans-national mythology" later incorporated into his controversial 1999 novel, The Book of Kings, which is considered, depending on the reviewer, a masterpiece of Western literature or else one of the worst novels ever published. This copy of the manuscript comes from the library of Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, Peter Taylor, whom Thackara met while attending Harvard. Taylor became a mentor to Thackara and the two remained friends until Taylor's death in 1994. An influential unpublished first novel from this highly controversial writer. .

        Autograph letter signed ("Ronald Tolkien").

      "Corpus Christi", 1971. - Small 4to. 1 p. To "My dear Ladies", sending copies of "Verses" and apologising for the delay in so doing since their return "from the ease of The Belmont"; and describing the weather they have enjoyed since: "May continued to be 'according to the poets', on almost every day to its end, in this favoured corner of England. In fact the weather has only just turned bad. We remained in sunshine, immune from storms, even in neighbouring counties, until this morning when at 4 a.m. a Noachic rain began, & is still going on non-stop (8 p.m.). Ones does not read of the great play-cycles of biblical episodes, that used to be performed on Corpus Christi in the open, being 'washed out'. But no doubt they were sometimes. It may have made the play of Noah more realistic, but must have dampened the roaring rout of King Herod! [.]". - At the end, Tolkien notes: "please mark any reply Personal & it will be forwarded unopened". - Tolkien and his wife had spent a week in May at the Belmont Hotel in Sidmouth (The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide, edited by Christina Scull and Wayne G. Hammond, 2006, pp. 753-4). Tolkien wrote to his son Christopher on 2 June: "Our brief holiday to Sidmouth, which was what Dr Tolhurst's advice boiled down to, was very pleasant indeed. We were lucky in our time in fact the only week available at the hotel since May was such a wonderful month and we came in for a 'spring explosion' of glory" (Letters, 323). The "Verses" sent with the letter were copies of The Adventures of Tom Bomadil and Other Verses from the Red Book, published by Allen & Unwin in 1962. - The form of signature used here "Ronald" as opposed to "J.R.R." Tolkien is rare and was used for friends only; in 1963 he wrote to his publishers, who proposed reproducing the "Ronald" signature in facsimile, "I do not and never have used the signature 'Ronald Tolkien' as an auctorial signature, and I do not think it suitable for this purpose" (3 February 1964, to Ronald Eames, Tolkien Companion, p. 616). - Very light creasing at top.

        [THE PENTAGON PAPERS] UNITED STATES-VIETNAM RELATIONS 1945-1967. 12 volumes. William Bundy's copy with his annotations

      Washington: Government Printing Office, 1971. First Edition. printed wraps. Very Good. Twelve quarto (8-1/4" x 10-3/4") volumes in original printed brown wraps of the official government publication, popularly known as THE PENTAGON PAPERS, collecting the 43 declassified volumes of the Department of Defense's 1968 study in 47 volumes (the last 4 volumes had not yet been declassified because they dealt with peace negotiations and the release of prisoners of war). Illustrated with charts, diagrams, and maps. Although not signed by him, this is William Bundy's copy, acquired along with a few other Vietnam-related books inscribed to him [See entries in our inventory under Westmoreland], and contains his scattered annotations. William Bundy had a long, distinguished service in the government in the CIA and in the Defense Department. He was appointed Assistant Secretary of State for Far Eastern Affairs in March 1964. His brother McGeorge was Special Assistant for National Security Affairs to Kennedy and Johnson from 1961-1966. Both are considered primary architects of America's involvement in Vietnam. In THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST, David Halberstam stated that during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, William Bundy's name "would probably be on more pieces of paper dealing with Vietnam over a seven-year period than anyone else's." First published by the New York Times in June of 1971, these volumes represented something of a personal defeat for Bundy who at the time had an 1100-page unfinished manuscript in which he selectively paraphrased from classifed papers in his possession and which was rendered unpublishable by the appearance of these volumes. Commissioned by Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, the reports were leaked by Daniel Ellsberg to reporter Neil Sheehan of the NEW YORK TIMES, who began publishing excerpts on 13 June 1971. The ìPentagon Papersî revealed several steps the Johnson and Nixon administrations had taken to escalate the war in Vietnam without informing the public. President Nixon argued that Ellsberg was guilty of felony treason (under the 1917 Espionage Act) because they had no authority to publish classified documents. Though the TIMES had been advised not to publish, they did so claiming the First Amendment right to publish information essential to citizensí understanding of their government. Nixonís Attorney General, John Mitchell, obtained a federal court injunction forcing the TIMES to cease publication. After the TIMES appealed, the case reached the Supreme Court. A separate case involving the WASHINTON POSTís publication of articles based on Ellsbergís leaks also reached the highest court. In June, 1971, the Supreme Court ruled (6-3) that the injunctions were unconstitutional.

In 1902, Buber became the editor of the weekly Die Welt, the central organ of the Zionist movement, although he later withdrew from organizational work in Zionism. In 1923 Buber wrote his famous essay on existence, Ich und Du (later translated into English as I and Thou), and in 1925 he began translating the Hebrew Bible into the German language. In 1930 Buber became an honorary professor at the University of Frankfurt am Main, and resigned in protest from his professorship immediately after Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933. He then founded the Central Office for Jewish Adult Education, which became an increasingly important body as the German government forbade Jews to attend public education. In 1938, Buber left Germany and settled in Jerusalem, in the British Mandate of Palestine, receiving a professorship at Hebrew University and lecturing in anthropology and introductory sociology."].
