      New York: Crown Publishers, 1972. First hardcover edition, preceded by a paperback original published by Chicago Paperback House in 1962.

        American Folk Blues Festival, Original, Vintage, 1972, German Concert Poster By Gunther Kieser [SIGNED]

      American Folk Blues Festival Concert Poster, Musikhalle, Hamburg, March 14, 1972 produced by Lippmann & Rau, designed by Gunther Kieser and SIGNED by Kieser, to the Michel + Kieser imprint at the lower right margin; additionally SIGNED by concert promoter, Fritz Lau at the bottom right. A1 Format, 23.5" by 33.25" (59.7 cm. by 84.5 cm.); the poster has never been folded and is in about fine condition, with pin holes to corners, else, bright, unmarked. The American Folk Blues Festival was the brainchild of German concert promoters, Horst Lippmann and Fritz Rau, who had been successfully presenting jazz concerts in Germany since the mid - 1950’s. First held in 1962, this was the tenth anniversary of the festival, for which this poster was designed, and featured several of the musicians, including T-Bone Walker and Memphis Slim who had been part of the original festival. Working with the well-connected Chicago bluesman, composer and bassist Willie Dixon, L&R had for the past decade presented a who’s who of American urban and country blues artists for the first time to European audiences with successful concerts in England, France and Germany. Early exposure to these great American blues musicians inspired and influenced a generation of British musicians, including future rock stars Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, all of whom played an important role in the blue-based British Invasion of the 1960’s. This was to be the last AFBF for eight years although the festival did resume in 1980 and continued for another five years. The posters created exclusively for the German AFBF festivals were designed by the eminent graphic designer Gunther Kieser and are representative of some of his finest music poster designs. A significant blues poster for the tenth presentation of the influential American Folk Blues Festival, in collector’s condition, scarce without factory folds and SIGNED by the designer. 1751.

        Original artwork of a Grizzly Bear in mountainous landscape

      Gouache and wash over a partial photographic base, signed at the lower right corner, on paper, laid down onto board. Sheet size: 24 x 31 3/4 inches. An evocative image of the wilderness of North America and one of its most iconic inhabitants. James Carter Beard, the son of artist James Henry Beard, was born in Cincinnati, but lived and worked in New York, exhibiting with the Brooklyn Art Association. Much of his work was carried out in grey wash as he did a great deal of work for magazines and books that did not require colour. The exact method he employed for the present work is not clear, but he seems to have had an image of a bear printed (photographically) without a background. He then added the surroundings using both gouache and wash, placing the bear in a finely observed naturalistic setting. He then worked on the bear, adding detail, particularly to the head and the paws, before signing his name twice at the lower right corner: once in a brown tone, and again over the top in black. This combination of techniques suggest that this work was created as artwork for an illustration or a plate in a book or magazine: unfortunately it has not been possible to identify the publication.

        [Photographie originale] Trois tirages de deux portraits photographiques de Chris Marker portant des masques de Folon. Photographies par Jean-Michel Folon. Circa 1972

      1972. Photo. Illus. by Jean-Michel Folon. Bon. Aucune reliure. Deux tirages gélatino-argentiques d'époque d'après le même négatif avec différences de cadrage et d'exposition, 30 x 39,7 cm (feuilles), 24 x 34 cm (images). Un tirage gélation-argentique d'époque, 39,7 x 29,9 cm (feuille), 33,6 x 24,1 cm (image). Ces deux portraits rares (si ce n'est inconnus) du réalisateur Chris Marker dont le visage est à peine visible derrière les masques de carton découpés et coloriés de Folon sont assurément l'oeuvre de Jean-Michel Folon, car nous en connaissons le négatif. Folon n'apposait son tampon qu'à de très rares tirages et faisait très peu de tirages de ses clichés, souvent un ou deux seulement. Petits défauts dans les marges des tirages..

Surface marks to jacket and a slight paper adhesion on the rear panel, short tears to jacket at spine ends, still attractive and very good. Faint wear and discoloration to book edges. Inscribed by Mailer "To Buzz and Carol These were the years, hey gang? Love Norman May '72". Buzz and Carol Farbar were longtime friends of Mailer's from the publishing business - Buzz was involved in Mailer's three movies (Maidstone, Wild 90 and Beyond the Law), playing Buzz Cameo in the improvised gangster film "Wild 90" which is the subject of the essay "Some Dirt in the Talk" in this collection. Years later Buzz was arrested in a sting operation trying to buy a kilo of cocaine (actually a harmless white powder being shopped by an undercover agent). In return for a promise of a radically reduced sentence, Buzz was convinced to wear a wire to a lunch at Armando's in Brooklyn with Mailer where he would get Norman to admit that he was the money guy in an international hashish ring run by Mailer's onetime associate Richard Stratton. It didn't work out and Buzz was given no a harsh 6 year sentence. His wife Carol divorced him in 1985 and he ended up tragically committing suicide after being released from prison. Needless to say, rumors about Mailer's involvement in the drug smuggling and in Buzz's silence on the matter have made the rounds over the years. A terrific association with a close associate and one of the more puzzling episodes in one of the great literary lives of the 20th century. Size: Octavo (8vo). Quantity Available: 1.

Fine but for mild damp-stain (which a colleague humorously referred to as "authentic New York School soilage") to lower edge of - mainly - front cover; traces of same to rear cover and bottom edge, close inspection only. Else sharp and bright. First edition, one of 26 lettered copies signed by Brainard. The "A" copy. Typical Brainard: gossipy, funny, and erotic. Filled with New York School in-jokes and sexually graphic images. There was an unsigned edition (no apparent priority), which strangely seems more uncommon than the signed. OCLC notes more than a third of this edition already behind institutional walls. Arguably the most desirable copy of an increasingly scarce Brainard title.

      New York: Warner Paperback Library 1st Editions 1972-1975 ----------36 paperbacks, some are Canadian printings. In 1972 to 1975, Warner Paperback Library issued these 36 Avenger novels, reprinting the 24 novels from the "The Avenger" hero pulp magazine (24 issues, September 1939 to September 1942), plus 12 new original novels continuing the series, all as FIRST EDITION PAPERBACK ORIGINALS. All 36 books offered here, the COMPLETE SET, are FIRST printings, there are NO later printings. Paul Ernst (1899-1985), using the famous house name Kenneth Robeson (which was also used on the Doc Savage pulp) wrote the first 24 books for the pulp magazine, and they are reprinted here in book form for the first time. Books 25-36 were written by Ron Goulart (1933- ), also using the Robeson pseudonym, as new books published here for the first time. Front cover art was by Peter Caras for the first 8 volumes, and by George Gross for all other volumes. As for condition, this is a marvellous set, with, but for the most modest shelfwear, almost all of the books being unread as new. Descriptions of the few exceptions follow: # 2, faint reading crease / # 28 faint reading crease, 4 small drops of some liquid which has penetrated the front cover and marked the verso and first page as well, pen price on first page, mild edgewear / # 32 some edgewear, corner crease / # 36 faint corner crease.
