        [Publisher's Advance Promotional Package for:] MINAMATA

      [New York: Holt, Rinehart & Winston, prior to January 1975].. Folio. Loose and comb-bound sheets, photocopied typescript, etc. Some tears and tanning to typescript, a few filing labels and abrasions from same; a variety of items, as detailed below. Good to very good or better. A substantial pre-publication promotional, assembled for purposes of subsidiary rights consideration and highly privileged review, for the first US edition of Smith's extraordinary photo-essay on the devastation caused by industrial pollution at Minamata. Present here are the twelve individual folio (41 x 30 cm) plates that made up the illustrative component of the 1973 Japanese portfolio, MINAMATA: LIFE - SACRED AND PROFANE, published to coincide with the exhibition hosted by Seibu Department Store; ca. 34 leaves of photocopied typescript, legal format, denoted "Sample Text First Draft" and dated in type 12/9/74; two copies of an elaborate oblong large folio (30 x 48 cm) presentation, plastic comb- bound in printed boards, each consisting of eight proof printings in high quality gravure of photographs and captions; and finally, a rather ragged example of the printed dust jacket for the forthcoming book. The promotional caption to the comb-bound presentations does not overstep the bounds of truth in asserting: "In the Twentieth Century, certain statements have helped alter the course of civilization: D.W. Griffith's 'Birth of a Nation' [/] Edward R. Murrow's television condemnation of Joseph McCarthy [/] Bob Dylan's 'Blowin in the Wind' [/] Rachel Carson's 'Silent Spring' [/] now W. Eugene Smith's MINAMATA." The obvious expense of assembling such an elaborate promotional package virtually assures that only a few were prepared for submission to the top tier of reviewers or subsidiary rights editors, and it is unlikely that few have survived. MINAMATA is among the landmarks of the 20th century photo-essay, and stands as testament to the dedication and genius, often in the face of extraordinary odds and physical danger, of W. Eugene Smith. ROTH, p.232.

He is convinced that in his new position he will be able to contribute to the nation?s security, and of course we have to trust his opinion. Mr. Rabin is the Prime Minister; we serve our people in a parliamentary opposition. It is the opposition?s duty to strive for change and sometimes also to demonstrate unity, as we have done lately, with regard to denying the demands by Egypt in March. Therefore, this is not a personal question.?On March 20, 1975, the Israeli government issued the following statement, in part, ?Egypt demanded Israeli withdrawal from the Mitla and Gidi passes and the Abu Rudeis oil fields, but was unwilling to end the state of war. Israel offered to withdraw from the Abu Rudeis area and from the western half of the passes in return for a long term Egyptian agreement to refrain from the use of force in the future. Israel also asked for limitation of the Arab boycott, propaganda and political warfare. Israel also wanted to retain its early warning station at Um Hashiba, but Egypt refused to agree to this even though Israel suggested the construction of a similar Egyptian station in the U.N. controlled buffer zone...?Gen. Yitzhak Rabin, former Israeli Army Chief of Staff, was elected to the Knesset (parliament) as a member of the Labour Party in December 1973 and joined Prime Minister Golda Meir's cabinet as Minister of Labour in March 1974. After Meir resigned in April, he became party leader and, in June, Israel's first native-born Prime Minister. Begin was a member of the opposition Likud Party.Gen. Ariel Sharon, 1956 and 1967, who captured the strategic Mitla pass in the Sinai Peninsula in 1956 and 1967, was recalled to command the Armored Division during the 1973 Yom Kippur War and led the crossing of Suez Canal. Instrumental in the formation of the Likud party, in 1974, he became a member of the Knesset and served as Security and Defense Advisor to Prime Minister Rabin.

        The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B & Back Again)

      Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, New York and London, 1975. 242 pages. The book is in near fine condition save for some slight shelfwear to the edges of the boards, a slight darkening to the top edge of the boards, and a faint dark spot on the top of the pageblock. The dustjacket is in equally bright condition, is non price-clipped, with only the faintest degree of shelfwear, and now encased in a Mylar protective sleeve. Aside from the following inscription, there are no other internal markings. This copy is inscribed in pencil by the author/artist on the half title "to Mary Jane / with much love AW." Aside from this common and typically Warholian signature, there is another perhaps more typical bold black marker "AW" inscribed on the same page, with a decidedly more atypical "Andy Warhol" inscribed in pencil along the bottom edge. Additionally, as he has done on other copies, he has dashed off a quick full page pencil sketch of a Campbell's Soup Can, here identified as "Oil Soup," no doubt in homage to Oil City Houston, which he visited frequently, was supported, embraced and enthusiastically patronized, and where this copy was signed. A stated first edition, followed by the letters "B C D E" indicating that it is a first impression of the first edition. This is a bright, clean, and sharp copy of a major literary and artistic work by arguably the most influential artist of the twentieth century, with an inscription testifying to his love of the city of Houston and the people he knew here.. Inscribed by the Artist. First Edition. Cloth. Near Fine/Fine Condition.
