        Home from Moscow after signing the first Strategic Arms Limitation Talks treaty, President Nixon tells a Congressman ?After any long journey, the best part is always coming home ?? ? on the day he signed this letter, June 23, 1972, he and his Chief of Staff Bob Haldeman formulated a plan to block investigations of the June 17th Watergate burglary by having the CIA falsely claim to the FBI that national security was involved; this taped conversation, known as the ?Smoking Gun,? made public on August 5, 1974, led to Nixon?s resignation on August 9th

      Typed Letter Signed ?RN? as President, 1 page, 7? x 10.5?. On pale green White House stationery with blind embossed presidengtial seal at top center. Washington, D.C., June 23, 1972. To Congressman C.W. Bill Young. On verso, faint traces from prior display by Young in a photo album with self-adhesive pages. Fine condition. In full, ?After any long journey, the best part is always coming home, and your warm words of greeting made this occasion especially happy. In a very real sense, every American played a vital role in the success of the Moscow visit, for what was accomplished there reflected our people?s abiding desire for enduring peace. With the agreements we have an unparalleled opportunity to build such a structure of lasting peace, and from your letter I know I can count on your support in this great undertaking. Needless to say, I am deeply grateful for your expression of condidence and encouragement ...? On May 27, 1972, in Moscow, President Nixon and Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev signed the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) agreements. At the time, these agreements were the most far-reaching attempts to control nuclear weapons ever. Three weeks later, Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate office building were burglarized. The House Judiciary Committee investigating the impeachment of President Nixon recommended three articles of impeachment: on July 27, 1974 (obstruction of justice), July 29th (abuse of power), and July 30th (contempt of Congress). On July 24, 1974, the Supreme Court had ruled unanimously that claims of executive privilege over tapes secretly recorded by President Nixon were void. On August 5, 1974, the White House released a previously unknown audio tape from June 23, 1972, the day the letter here offered was written. Known as the ?Smoking Gun? tape, recorded from 10:04 AM to 11:39 AM, less than a week after the Watergate break-in, it documented the initial stages of the cover-up, revealing Nixon meeting with his Chief of Staff Bob Haldeman in the Oval Office and formulating a plan to block investigations by having the CIA falsely claim to the FBI that national security was involved. It proved that Nixon had been involved in the cover-up from the beginning. Once the June 23rd tape was made public, all ten Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee who had voted against impeachment in committee announced that they would now vote for impeachment once the matter reached the House floor. Republican Senators Barry Goldwater and Hugh Scott told the President that there were not only enough votes in the Senate to convict him, but that no more than 15 Senators were willing to vote for acquittal. Facing certain impeachment in the House of Representatives and equally certain conviction in the Senate, three days after the June 23, 1972, tape was made public, Nixon announced his resignation on the evening of Thursday, August 8, 1974, to take effect at noon the next day. Republican Charles William (Bill) Young represented Florida in the House of Representatives from 1971-2014. At the time of his death, he was the senior Republican in Congress, having served over 42 years. Young was a delegate to the Republican National Conventions which nominated Nixon in 1968 and 1972, Ford in 1976, and Reagan in 1984. He had supported President Nixon during the House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings publicly suggesting, ?Maybe a scenario has been worked out in advance,? with all 21 committee Democrats having already decided to impeach the President.

        Poesies Antillaises

      1972. MATISSE, Henri. Poesies Antillaises. By John-Antoine Nau. 90 ff. Illustrated with 28 full-page portrait lithographs and a further 27 hors-texte ornaments by Matisse. Folio, loose as issued in the publisher's wrappers and cardboard slipcase. Paris: Mourlot, 1972.Matisse conceived of this work as an homage to his close friend John-Antoine Nau, and as he had done with Charles d'Orleans and Ronsard, he personally selected the poems that moved him most. As Matisse and the poet shared a common love for Martinique, Matisse worked from Martiniquan models as well as Malagashan models for the illustrations. Matisse prepared the illustrations for this book in 1946 and a contract to publish the edition was drawn up with Mourlot in 1947. Matisse worked on and off on the production maquette for Poesies Antillaises from 1950 to 1953. However, due in large measure to the artist's ill health at the end of his life, publication was delayed until almost twenty years after his death. One of 200 ordinary copies. A superb copy of this magnificent book which is similar in feel to Floril?ge, published by Skira in 1948.Duthuit 37.Manet to Hockney, No. 129.

        POWER TO THE PEOPLE: THE POLITICAL THOUGHTS OF JOHN LENNON

      London: New English Library. 1972. Uncorrected Proof Copy of this unpublished book. Original green printed card covers, in the dustwrapper. An excellent fine copy, without inscriptions or stamps. Illustrated throughout. Complete with the near fine lightly creased dustwrapper with the publisher's stamp reading 'Publication 20 APR 1972' to the underside. The dustwrapper illustration is by Tony Lamb, the image repeated without colour as an illustration in the book. The book, had it made publication, would almost certainly have been issued with a laminated hardcover or as a paperback original so the dustwrapper seen here is most likely the proof artwork for the upper and lower covers (a theory further supported by the very thin and completely blank flaps). Loosely laid in is the publisher's slip with the signature in red ink of Mark Howell, underneath which Peter Haining has signed and inscribed, 'The compiler of this little opportunist book which was never published!' Rare. We are aware of only two other copies, both lacking the dustwrapper / cover artwork; one copy in the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library at Emory University, the other sold at auction in 2006 (front cover detached). Provenance: Mark Howell, editor New English Library; then to Peter Haining, editorial director New English Library. The best John Lennon book never published! Compiled from interviews given by Lennon over 1970 and 1971, the book was due to be published by New English Library in April 1972 but was pulled at the last minute. There are several theories for this, the strongest being that the publication might jeopardise John's already troublesome application for his US Green Card, a fight that started following his deportation in February 1972 up until being granted permanent residency in July 1976.

First published in 1887, ten years after the establishment in England of a national Liberal Party, this is an invaluable and comprehensive historical, statistical, and political publication. The volumes cover the years from 1887 to 1889, 1905 to 1932, and 1934 to 1939. Each volume was reproduced from the best original copy available, although the publishers (Harvester Press) observe in a prefatory note to the 1887 edition that "the original, in the British Museum, [had] been tightly re-bound and this has affected the reproduction of the inner margin of some few pages. Extensive inquiries have failed to locate an alternative copy for reprinting...." Each volume typically includes complete information on the organization of the Liberal Party, composition of both Houses of Parliament, the various government departments, a summary of legislation passed the previous year, a riding-by-riding account of the previous general election, or by-elections, including candidates and vote counts, and an enormous amount of financial and budgetary data.

Small folio, 322 x 230 mm, bound in original vellum, with yellow dust-wrapper and preserved in publisher's beige cloth chemise and slipcase. Paris: Iliazd, 1972. |~||~||~||~| First Edition thus. One of 78 copies printed on Japon ancien paper, signed in red pencil on the colophon by Iliazd and with the original etching signed by Picasso. The etching is a figure study of Russian artist Pirosmanachvili at his easel painting, an homage to Douanier Rousseau (Goeppert). The dry-point etching was printed by the Atelier Lacourière Frélaut. The story behind this Iliazd book is touching: Iliazd returned to his homeland in 1912 and met the painter Niko Pirosmanachvili (1862-1918). Iliazd was alarmed by the difficult economic straits that the painter was in and wrote a manifesto to promote his art; it was published in a local paper in 1914. "In the summer of 1971, Iliazd decided to reprint the article… he convinced his friend Picasso to create this frontispiece of the Georgian painter. The printing was completed and signed by December 1972, four months before Picasso's death" (Johnson, p. 165). Baer 2020. Bloch 2015. Goeppert 154. Artists' Books in the Modern Era 1870-2000, 94.

Matisse prepared the illustrations for this book in 1946 and a contract to publish the edition was drawn up with Mourlot in 1947. Matisse worked on and off on the production maquette for Poesies Antillaises from 1950 to 1953. However, due in large measure to the artist's ill health at the end of his life, publication was delayed until almost twenty years after his death. One of 200 ordinary copies. A superb copy of this magnificent book which is similar in feel to Florilège, published by Skira in 1948. Duthuit 37. Manet to Hockney, No. 129.
