        Benjo / Toilet

      Tokyo: Fukushu-Shudan, Geribara 5, (1971). Very light wear, else fine in photo-illustrated wrappers.. First Edition. Small quarto. The first of three books published by the fabled Geribara 5, a group that followed in the footsteps of Provoke. This copy SIGNED on the front cover by the group's most famous member, Nobuyoshi Araki, with a drawing of a penis pissing into a toilet. What follows inside is a catalogue of gross Tokyo shit holes and crude bathroom graffiti. Despite the disgusting subject matter, the book is more satiric celebration than a condemnation of public sanitation! (Parr / Badger, v1, 296).

        The Alphabet of Francesco Torniello da Novara [1517] Followed by a comparison with the Alphabet of Fra Luca Pacioli

      Verona: Officina Bodoni, 1971. Quarto. xxvii, 106pp. One of 160 copies printed on handmade Amalfi paper. This reprint of Torniello's alphabet includes a reproduction of the title page portrait of Torniello, newly engraved after Guillaume Le Signerre by Leonardo Farina; a facsimile of the geometrically-constructed alphabet; and a comparison of Torneillo's roman capitals with those constructed by Luca Pacioli in 1509. First published in 1517, Torneillo's treatise is of interest for his calligraphic improvements of the capital letters, but especially significant because it was the first construction based on a logical system of measurement which he called "punto," or point. With an Introduction by Giovanni Mardersteig; English translation by Betty Radice. A broadside leaf explaining the text, not called for in the bibliography, is laid-in. Very slight darkening along inner hinges from binding glue, else a very fine copy in quarter blue morocco, lettered in gilt, and vellum-colored boards, printed in black on both covers. With fine slipcase. T.e.g.

        American White Pelican. From "The Birds of America" (Amsterdam Edition) [Pl. 311]

      Amsterdam and New York: Johnson Reprint Corporation and Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, 1971-72. Colour-printed lithograph, on fine hand-made paper. Excellent condition. 37 x 23 1/2 inches. 26 3/4 x 39 7/8 inches (approx). In October 1971, employing the most faithful printing method available, the best materials and the ablest craftsmen of their age, the Amsterdam firm of Theatrum Orbis Terrarum Ltd., in conjunction with the Johnson Reprint Corporation of New York, set out to produce the finest possible limited edition facsimile of the greatest bird book ever printed: the Havell edition of John James Audubon's well-loved "Birds of America". The Curators of the Teyler's Museum in Haarlem, Holland made their copy of the original work available for use as a model. The Museum, founded in 1778, bought their copy through Audubon's son as part of the original subscription in 1839. After long deliberation, the extremely complex but highly accurate process of colour photo-lithography was chosen as the appropriate printing method. The best exponents of this art were the renowned Dutch printing firm of NV Fotolitho Inrichting Drommel at Zandvoort who were willing to undertake the task of printing each plate in up to eight different colours. The original Havell edition was published on hand-made rag paper and the publishers were determined that the paper of their edition should match the original. Unhappy with the commercially available papers, they turned to the traditional paper manufacturers G. Schut & Zonen (founded in 1625), who, using 100% unbleached cotton rags, were able to produce a wove paper of the highest quality, with each sheet bearing a watermark unique to the edition: G. Schut & Zonen [JR monogram] Audubon [OT monogram]. The publishers and their dedicated team completed their task late in 1972 and the results of these labours were affectionately known as the "Amsterdam Audubon." 250 copies were published and sold by subscription, with the plates available bound or unbound. Given all this careful preparation, it is not surprising that the prints have the look and feel of the original Havell edition. John James Audubon was born in Les Cayes, Haiti on 26 April 1785. From 1788 to 1803 he lived in France until he was sent to the United States to manage an estate that his father had bought in Pennsylvania. He returned to France in 1805, but his fascination with the United States had taken root and he returned again in May 1806. He married Lucy Bakewell in 1808 and together they embarked on a difficult period financially that was only to be resolved, through Audubon's unshakable and justified belief in his own abilities, with the publication of his masterpiece in 1827-1838. "The Birds of America" is the single greatest ornithological work ever produced and is the realization of Audubon's dream of traveling throughout the United States recording, natural size, every native bird then known. The 435 double-elephant folio sized plates, printed by the Havells of London, depict some 1,065 different species, the majority drawn from specimens that Audubon himself had captured. The Havell edition was expensive at the time of publication and this has not changed. Possibly the last complete copy which will ever appear on the market sold for a staggering $8,802,500 in a sale in New York in March 2000. Currently, the increasingly rare individual plates from this edition, when they do appear, generally sell for between $5,000 and $175,000 depending on the image. The quality of the Amsterdam Audubon plates is apparent to any discerning collector and it is becoming ever clearer that they offer the most attractive alternative to the Havell edition plates, given the latter's spiraling prices.

        Le gambe di Saint Germain

      Grafica Uno 1971 9 acqueforti acquetinte a colori di Dino Buzzati, firmate dall'Artista (cm 12x10; 31x24; 9x46) "La vivezza stilistica dell'interpretazione grafica di Buzzati riecheggia la scioltezza e le originali prospettive dei suoi romanzi e racconti brevi. Le nove acqueforti colorate presentano un gioco affascinante di lunghe linee e corte prospettive. Il testo di Osvaldo Patani è una satira nella quale il fascino sessuale delle gambe femminili è esacerbato fino al culmine della follia della superminigonna degli anni sessanta. Le incisioni di Buzzati sono lievi e ariose, e rappresentano le donne, e naturalmente soprattutto le gambe, sovrapposte in una prospettiva esagerata allo sfondo di vedute diverse del Quartiere Latino a Parigi. Ne risulta una satira affettuosa e semiseria dei 'gambaioli', i martiri della gamba per i quali senza gambe non esiste l'amore" (Sandra Kirshenbaum, in Fine Print, ottobre 1985). "Nel mese di novembre Buzzati iniziò le acqueforti per le divagazioni poetiche sulle più belle gambe di Francia nell'atelier di Giorgio Upiglio che per l'occasione fu anche l'editore. Il volume fu subito esaurito e tutte le acqueforti furono firmate a matita da Buzzati. Al termine del lavoro mi regalò le lastre che non volle biffare. Le ripubblicheremo un giorno, mi disse. Le gambe di Saint Germain fu l'ultimo libro non scritto e il suo primo illustrato per un altro autore. Fu dunque l'estremo atto artistico poco prima del ricovero nella clinica della Madonnina. Quando Buzzati arrivava da Upiglio dopo la ripidissima scala da 'via ferrata dolomitica' un poco affaticato prima di sedersi intorno al rustico tavolone, (. . .) sempre così stilé si toglieva la giacca scura di cachemire per affiatarsi subito con gli altri (. . .) Per l'illustrazione con le gambe in primo piano e il sottofondo della piantina del quartiere latino, Buzzati si fece spedire dal corrispondente del Corriere della Sera da Parigi la mappa della città per essere il più preciso possibile. Ma è un fatto che Buzzati oltre che esigentissimo cronista e scrittore è stato un esigentissimo pittore e non meno nelle sue illustrazioni che chiudono il suo ciclo letterario illustrativo. L'ultima volta che lo vidi citò una frase di Paul Valéry: - Non conosco arte che possa impegnare più intelligenza del disegno -" (Osvaldo Patani, Atelier Upiglio, Torino, Allemandi, 1986). 4to (cm 32x25) pp. 46 Quartini sciolti in custodia in mezza tela (Loose as issued in original half-cloth portfolio) Perfetto (Mint) [Jentsch, 1993]

        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.
