        The Blood Oranges

      (NY): New Directions. (1971). Inscribed by Hawkes to John Barth and his wife: "To Jack and Shelly for sensuality! Much love/ Jack/ Prov. June, 1971/ We'll sail to those Greek isles yet. Voila." Laid in is a small page of notes on the book in Barth's hand (about 70 words, with a dozen crossed out, on a 3" x 4" scrap of paper): "H's peasant nudes have a beginning and an end but no middle (213)," etc. When Hawkes passed away in 1998, Barth wrote his obituary for The New York Times, which included the following comments: "With the death at 72 of John Hawkes -- fiction writer, fiction mentor and fiction live reader extraordinaire -- we lost one of the brightest (and paradoxically darkest) lights of American letters through our century's second half, a navigation star for scores of apprentice writers however different their own literary course, and as spellbinding a public reader of his own work as I have ever heard." One instance of underlining by Barth, corresponding to one of his notes. Mild foxing to top edge of text block, else fine in a near fine dust jacket with the usual fading to the spine lettering, a touch of wear to the heel, and a corner crease to the front flap. A wonderful association copy, linking two of the premier American writers of the era. From the library of John Barth. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Highly important George Bush 2pp ALS to Daniel Patrick Moynihan

      Written on a George Bush Ambassador note card, the letter dated Christmas eve of 1971 reads in full, "Dear Pat, Thanks so very much this fall. Particularly for helping me focus on the important things, and particularly for contributing so much to active, loyal, and dedicated representation of the US of A in the GA (see I'm an integral part of the alphabet soup). It was my selfish pleasure working with you - watching your style and skill with what I hope was unnoticeable jealousy and just plain being with you. Thanks for so much from a grateful heart. A great '72 to you and yours. George Bush."

        The Revolutionary Letters

      (n.p.)[Santa Fe, NM]: (Noose and Earth Read Out Southwest). (1971). Di Prima had been publishing her controversial and provocative "letters" in various configurations since two editions in 1968, which contained 15 poems. This edition of Revolutionary Letters is an oversized mimeograph production with 43 poems, and was issued for free and without copyright. The printed dedication is to Bob Dylan, and the colophon states "Power to the people's mimeo machines!" Although not called for, this copy is signed by the author and has four holograph corrections, presumably in her hand. 8-1/2" x 14", stapled in the left margin, with red covers. Two different paper stocks used; one darkening. Near fine. An unknown number of copies were done, but this appears to be one of the scarcest editions of this title, and is especially uncommon signed. . First Edition.

        Crossing the Water

      Harper & Row New York: Harper & Row. 1971. First. Uncorrected long galleys of the first American edition. Very good with a little dampstaining to the edges of a few leaves, and with chips and additional tidemarks to the verso of page 58 (the title poem), which has a review slip taped to it and which evidently served as the outer wrap when these galleys were sent or stored. The table of contents lacks pagination and otherwise varies slightly from the published version (which presented the poems in a different order than the British edition). Fragile and rare -- presumably only a handful of copies were prepared for use by the publisher. .

        THE VANTAGE POINT: PERSPECTIVES OF THE PRESIDENCY 1963-1969 Inscribed to Cyrus Vance

      Holt Rinehart Winston New York: Holt Rinehart Winston, (1971). First Edition. Hardcover. Typical wear to this terrible choice for a binding with some separation of the covers. Most copies of this scarce book that we have seen over the years have been heavily repaired or rebound. This copy is untouched and still about Very Good and with a great inscription. Very Good in a Fine clamshell box. Bound in publisher's flimsy and impractical padded red leather housed in a custom-made cloth clamshell box. Illustrated with photographs. Copy #47 of 300 SIGNED by the author on the limitation page. In addition, LBJ has filled the dedication page with an absolutely superb INSCRIPTION to his Deputy Secretary of Defense: "To/Cy Vance/Loyal sturdy wise/a good man to have as friend/and associate--/from his friend/Lyndon B. Johnson Xmas 71." Vance's ownership signature is on the front endpaper. He is cited about 20 times in the index. Cyrus Vance was general counsel of the Defense Department and then the Secretary of the Army during the John F. Kennedy administration when units were sent to northern Mississippi in 1962 to protect James Meredith and ensure that the court-ordered integration of the University of Mississippi took place. As Deputy Secretary of Defense under Johnson, he first supported the Vietnam War but by the late 1960s changed his views and resigned from office advising the president to pull out of South Vietnam. In 1968 he served as a delegate to peace talks in Paris and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1969. Serving as Secretary of State in the Jimmy Carter administration, Vance was heavily instrumental in Carter's decision to return the Canal Zone to Panama and in the Camp David Accords agreement between Israel and Egypt. Vance resigned in opposition to Carter's plan, which eventually failed, to rescue the Iranian hostages. In the movie ARGO, Vance was portrayed by actor Bob Gunton.

Die Holzstöcke aus dem Jahr 1915 sind 1971 nochmals in kleiner Auflage abgezogen worden. Christian Schad (1894 - 1982). 1913 Studium an der Kunstakademie in München. Seine Bilder und Holzschnitte sind vom Expressionismus geprägt. Während des Ersten Weltkriegs entzieht sich Schad dem Militärdienst durch Flucht nach Zürich. In Zürich findet er Anschluß an die Dada-Bewegung um Hugo Ball (1886-1927), Hans Arp und Tristan Tzara (1896-1963). Er ist zusammen mit dem Schriftsteller Walter Serner (1889-1942) Hg. der Kunstzeitschrift "Sirius". Erste eigene Ausstellung in Zürich. 1917 übersiedelt er nach Genf. Mit Hilfe von lichtempfindlichen Fotoplatten entwickelt er ein Verfahren zur Herstellung von Konturbildern. Diese Photogramme als künstlerisches Ausdrucksmittel gelten als eine der größten Innovationen der Kunst im 20. Jahrhundert. Tzara prägt für diese "Photographien ohne Kamera" den Begriff der Schadographien. 1920-1925 lebt Schad mit Serner in Rom und Neapel. Seine Bilder sind beeinflußt von der italienischen Malerei der Renaissance.1923 heiratet Schad, 1925 übersiedlung nach Wien. Ab 1925 wird Schad zusammen mit Otto Dix und George Grosz zum Hauptvertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Seine in diesem Stil gemalten Bilder thematisieren das nächtliche Großstadtleben. In zahlreichen Porträts zeichnet Schad ein Bild des Lebensstils der "Goldenen Zwanziger". Er porträtiert Künstler, Intellektuelle und Aristokraten, mit denen er in Wien und Berlin verkehrt. 1928 Übersiedelung nach Berlin. Die meisten seiner für die Große Berliner Kunstausstellung 1930 eingereichten Werke werden abgelehnt. Nach der Machtübernahme der Nationalsozialisten zieht sich Schad zunehmend ins Privatleben zurück. Er führt nur noch private Porträtaufträge aus. 1936 "Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism" im Museum of Modern Art in New York zeigt seine frühen Holzschnitte und Schadographien.1942/43 Zerstörung seines Berliner Ateliers durch Bombenangriffe.1943 übersiedelt er nach Aschaffenburg.

      [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.

        The Objectivist, Volumes 1-10 Complete (with accompanying publications)

      New York: The Objectivist, 1971. This is a complete run of Ayn Rand's publication The Objectivist, volumes 1-10, January 1962 through September 1971 (when it ceased publication). This set consists two parts. --THE FIRST PART is a bound volume of The Objectivist Newsletter, Vols. 1-4, 1962-1965, second printing, 1971. This volume is in fine condition with light age toning to exterior text block. Interior pages are clean and unmarked. After Volume 4 the publication's format changed from newsletter style to magazine style and became simply "The Objectivist." --THE SECOND PART is a complete run of The Objectivist, volumes 5-10, in original softcover form in wraps. These are all in fine condition, clean and unmarked, except for an old rubber band mark on the front or back cover of 3 issues. *** Also included in this set are several publications in original wraps, corresponding in size and format to The Objectivist. These include: 1) "The Intellectual Bankruptcy of Our Age," by Ayn Rand. Lecture first delivered by Ayn Rand at the Ford Hall Forum, Boston, on March 26, 1961, and at Hunter College, University of North Carolina, Johns Hopkins University, Brooklyn College, and Brown University, on various dates in 1961-1962. Published by The Objectivist. 2) "Playboy's Interview with Ayn Rand," interview by Alvin Toffler, originally published in Playboy in March 1964 and reprinted by The Objectivist. 3) "Global Balkanization," by Ayn Rand, lecture delivered at The Ford Hall Forum, Boston, on April 10, 1977.

Orange wraps. 6) The Objectivist Forum, Volume 1, No. 2, April 1980. Edited by Harry Binswanger and Leonard Peikoff. Published by TOF Publications, New York. This publication was a new series begun after Rand had discontinued her own. ~~ This complete set forms a valuable representation of Rand's philosophical theories--which included rational egoism, individual rights, and laissez-faire capitalism--set in the context of the time it was published. Each issue contains an article written by Rand. Frequent contributors include Leonard Peikoff and Nathaniel Branden, with other contributors as well, including two articles by Alan Greenspan, an early ardent supporter of Rand. Greenspan's article entitled "Gold and Economic Freedom," discusses the role of gold and the gold standard in a free society. In the last issue, Rand delivers her last essay, entitled "Brief Summary," in which she comments on her theory and its progress, and in which she makes her famous remark: "The monster is Immanuel Kant." Since then it has been argued that she misunderstood Kant. Rand ceased publication of The Objectivist in order to return to a more personal newsletter called "The Ayn Rand Letter." ~~ Each of the two parts in this set as I have described them can also be purchased separately. Please see my separate listings for each. All inquiries will be answered promptly.. Soft Cover. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

        [Screenplay]: The Godfather: Screenplay by Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola

      New York: Paramount Pictures. 1971. Original screenplay. Third draft. Dated March 29, 1971 (the date principal photography began). 143pp. Unbound mimeographed sheets printed rectos only, with related material. A script used by the studio to prepare the television version, this is accompanied by 1) a four page mimeographed memo marked: "Master Copy -- Showing Actual Changes Made", apparently intended to make the film televisable, for instance: "21' - Caan balls wedding guest against bedroom door - pick up scene as Duvall knocks on door, Caan and girl are then in freeze position - continue scene (with girl's off camera 'Oh Sonny!' but WITHOUT the orgasmic moans and sighs) after Caan says he will join Duvall in a minute. (Recommended cuts will be made) (Also after cuts made 'Oh Sonny' didn't make sense and Coppola agreed to cut)." Also: "31' - greatest piece of ass I've ever had. (Cut 'ass' only) (Changed to 'greatest piece of stuff')." Also with 2) Single photocopied sheet printed recto only of Coppola's introduction to the film indicating, in part: "I was pleased to have the opportunity to personally supervise the revisions, working with NBC so that this film could be viewed on television." Slight age-toning and light wear at the extremities, paperclips on the pages where changes have been made with pencil notes, else a near fine copy. The bestselling novel was made into one of the most acclaimed blockbuster films, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and featuring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, and many others. The Godfather was first nationally broadcast on NBC in November, 1974, a month before the theatrical debut of the equally acclaimed The Godfather: Part II. In 1977 a more elaborate, chronological portrayal of the Corleone epic (combining this film, its sequel, and numerous cut scenes) was edited and televised as The Godfather Saga (reportedly in order to raise funds for Coppola's Apocalypse Now). .

Inside of front and back board lined in silk-moire. This unique album was presented to Mr. & Mrs. Harry Burston on occasion of their visit to Israel on October 1971.

One photo shows the exterior, the rest is of the interior of the Synagogue and Cultural Center in Tel-Aviv. Photographs with captions in English and Hebrew. "In Eternal Memory: This building was built in Memory of the Jewish Communities in China by Igud Yotzei Sin in Israel. The construction of the building was possible thanks to the Administrator General and Official receiver of the State of Israel, who handed over the proceeds received from the sale of the Synagogue in Shanghai and through the generous donations from the former residents of China in Israel and all over the world. The building was set thanks to the great devotion extended by the President of the Building Committee, Mr. M. A. Zaigraeff. The inauguration of the skeleton of the building took place on the 20th August 1959. The inauguration of the opening of the building took place on 6th September 1961. Architects & Building plans: Mr. G. Rabinovitch, Mr. A. Kahane, Aron Kodesh." In 1951 a group of Jewish leaders from several communities of former China residents in Israel founded "Igud Olei Sin", which was later changed to "Igud Yotsei Sin." Small sticker of S. Sanzetti Photo Studio on inside of rear board. Minor age toning on title-page and on margin of card stock. Near fine condition. Unique copy.

        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!"]

      Partito Comunista Italiano / Editoriali Fratelli Spada 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.
