        Picked-Up Pieces

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1975. First. First edition, trade issue. Fine in fine dustwrapper with a couple of tiny rubbed spots. Inscribed by the author: "for Herb Yellin, Best wishes and Merry Christmas, John Updike 12/17/75." Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association. .

        My Life.

      New York: G.P. Putnam & Sons, 1975. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Golda Meir on the front free endpaper, "In real deep friendship, and love Golda." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Laid in is a program from the Beverly Hilton Hotel "Dinner with Golda", from December 14, 1975, where the book was signed for a supporter. Golda Meir was elected Prime Minister of Israel on March 17, 1969, after serving as Minister of Labour and Foreign Minister. Israel's first and the world's third woman to hold such an office, she was described as the "Iron Lady" of Israeli politics years before the epithet became associated with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Former Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion used to call Meir "the best man in the government"; she was often portrayed as the "strong-willed, straight-talking, grey-bunned grandmother of the Jewish people." My Life is "both frank and very revealing of her personality and goals. Her total lack of pretense is especially winning. Meir's practical idealism can be seen in efforts as diverse as the beautification of kibbutzim and her strong advocacy of unemployment benefits. The work that 'most concerned and interested me,' she writes, was 'the translation of socialist principles into the down-to-earth terminology of everyday life.' Although the political events narrated are well known they are recounted with drama and spirit. Don't mistake this for just chicken soup with riposte-noodles: it's a model of its kind and a sure crowd-pleaser" (Kirkus Reviews).

        (Evolutionary Chess Set)

      1975. Folk art chess set and table. This non-traditional chess set is based on the theory of evolution, with dinosaurs facing off against mammals. The field is alternating squares of brown earth and green & blue ponds. The pawns on each side grow through the early evolutionary stages: the dinosaurs starts as a simple DNA double helix, which progresses through aquatic creatures and early amphibians; the mammalian side begins with a small, rat-like creature that ultimately evolves into early man. The larger pieces are in pairs, though each member of the pair is posed differently so that the set comprises sixteen unique pieces. The dinosaurs are represented by stegosaurs, pterodactyls, and something similar to an iguanodon. The king and queen are, appropriately, a pair of tyrannosaurus rex; the queen wears a pretty necklace of shark teeth. Opposite are rhinoceroses, saber-tooth tigers, mammoths, and a pair of modern humans as king and queen. The queen is a smartly dressed woman from Tokyo, and the king is a farmer named Butch, who bears an unfortunate resemblance to his pre-historic cousin in the row of pawns. The entire piece is a free-standing table, with the board resting on four legs. Around the edges of the board, a continuous landscape shows the gradual progression of life from the chaotic cosmos through to the modern day. The four legs of the table are painted in similar scenes, with one leg each for early aquatic life, dinosaurs, early mammals, and modern day. The Tokyo theme may point to a date of creation in the range of 1965-1975, the height of the Japanese Kaiju monster films craze. Pre-historic creatures, though magnified to a gargantuan scale, were common in these monster films, and their size was often the result of science gone wrong. The top of the chessboard measures 33 inches square, the base 36 inches square, and it stands 34 inches tall, not including pieces. A fascinating, unique piece.

      1975. HALEY, Alex. Typed draft page annotated. No place, circa 1975. Single sheet of goldenrod paper measuring 8-1/2 by 11 inches; matted and framed with photographic image from Roots, entire piece measures 14 by 24 inches. $3800.Rare typed page from an early book draft of Roots heavily annotated in green felt-tip marker in Alex HaleyÂ’s own hand, handsomely matted and framed with a photographic group portrait from the movie set of the Roots miniseries.This typed page is from an early draft of Alex HaleyÂ’s Roots, one of the most popular works of African-American historical fiction ever written. Alex Haley has heavily annotated in his own hand in green felt-tip marker. The page details the changes Haley made to the conversation between Miss Malizy and the slave Kizzy, a scene which occurs when Kizzy is first separated from her parents and sold to her new owner. “HaleyÂ’s most celebrated novel, Roots, has been compared to both Moby Dick and War and Peace. The Washington Post called it the most highly acclaimed book of our timeÂ… The author immediately became a household name, as he won over 270 awards. A phenomenon of the decade, Roots mesmerized Americans and readers of literature throughout the world. No novel since the publications of Uncle TomÂ’s Cabin and Gone With the Wind captured the public interest on the subject of slavery and its ramificationsÂ… In Roots Haley successfully traced his ancestors with a birth in 1750 in Gambia, through oral history with painstaking research and thereby put into perspective the historical background of millions of other African AmericansÂ… HaleyÂ’s 12 years of work on Roots won him a special Pulitzer prize on April 18, 1977” (Blockson 3939). Fine condition.

        Entretiens avec Nicolas Schoffer

      Paris, Denoël, 1975 - Grand in-folio de 55, [9] pages, en feuille contenu dans une boite toile bleue [375 X 480 X 55mm]. Tiré à 155 exemplaires. Celui-ci un des 125 exemplaires numérotés accompagnés d'une suite de 3 sérigraphies et d'un multiple, numérotés et signés par l'auteur. Arrivé à Paris, de Hongrie où il est né en 1912, Nicolas Schöffer élabore une oeuvre abondante de peintre avant d'orienter définitivement son intérêt vers une réflexion sur l'art, l'homme et son environnement. A partir de 1954, parallèlement à son oeuvre de sculpteur, il s'intéresse à l'architecture et à l'urbanisme. En 1973, il propose une tour cybernétique pour la défense fonctionnant au rythme de la ville. La synthèse de ses recherches aboutira à l'ambitieux projet de la "ville cybernétique".
