        Eldridge Cleaver autographed draft for his speech titled "No Money"

      California, c. 1976. 5" x 7". "Single page of draft notes, recto and verso, written in preparation for his speech titled ""No Money,"" c. 1976, 5"" x 7"", boldly scripted in graphite entirely in the hand of Eldridge Cleaver. Near fine with a small newspaper clip showing a title of ""Eldridge Cleaver urges reform of banks, democratic system"" and accompanied by a near fine unused, but addressed envelope, with the printed return address of ""Cleaver for Congress …"", and embellished with a US flag, 9.5"" x 4"". Additionally accompanied by a small color photo depicting Cleaver in a casual setting sitting on a couch.A scarce page of notes scripted entirely in the hand of Eldridge Cleaver. Composed circa 1970s, with anti-communistic sentiments, this draft was mostly composed around the time Cleaver was returning from 7 years of self imposed exile as a fugitive as a result of jumping bail in 1968 when he was facing charges of attempted murder. His seven exiled years as a fugitive had Cleaver living in Algeria, Cuba and France, along with trips to North Vietnam, North Korea and the Soviet Union. Previously enamored with communist life and philosophy, Cleaver ultimately soured to it. Originally everywhere he went he was wined and dined by the Communists. However, while in these countries Cleaver began to see that they were not “workers paradises” as he had been led to believe. He saw the bone-crushing poverty. He saw that people had no freedom of speech whatsoever. They were, for all practical purposes, SLAVES. Those who dared to demonstrate for more money and better living conditions were mowed down. Cleaver became disillusioned with Marxist-Leninist-Socialism. Realizing that everything he had believed in and fought for was false, he suffered a nervous breakdown while in Paris and was on the brink of suicide. He got in touch with the FBI and said he wanted to come home and he was ready to stand trial and accept whatever judgment the law decided he owed society in order to reinstate himself and to erase his criminal past. These phenomenal handwritten notes were composed in preparation for his speech which he called ""No Money"", which questioned the fairness of our own government , our economic system, and placed a microscope on how our country takes care of everyone selectively, with racial bias. His fluid movement from embracing communism to his disenfranchisement is highlighted by his comment: ""I visited these communist and revolutionary countries to study their development plans (and) to examine how the people felt about the government and how the government treated the people … There were always two sides - the government's and the peoples. There was a rosy picture (from) the government and a picture of misery and dejection from the point of view of the people""From this starting point, his draft speech now reaches to his concern with what he sees as the economic reality within the United States, highlighting perhaps that our government is also not beyond reproach, and also turns a blind eye to those in need, and worse completely ignores the black community. His incredibly scripted notes are shown in full below:""No MoneyThey always tell us there's no money for us! Yet they're able to come up with money overnight, millions, for refugees, for covert CIA operations, for overt military action, for flood relief, to pay off Poland debts - but nothing for blacks. We must turn this situation around. We must use our political power to crack this economic nut. There's no reason why - except the list below - Kwame (illegible) said ""Seek ye first The Political Kingdom …"" This new class is so Petty, brutal, and oppressive that the people all over the world are rising up against Communism.""A fantastic, scarce, and highly revealing autographed page, by Eldridge Cleaver during a highly charged period of our recent history, and a perfect example of his famous quote, “If you are not a part of the solution, you are a part of the problem.” Accompanied by a great casual photo of himEldridge Cleaver was a leader of the Black Panthers who, because of his many crimes, was often in prison where he wrote “Soul on Ice”, a commentary on prison life and racism in America which became an international best-seller and was basically the “manifesto” of the Black Nationalist Movement in America and abroad. In “Soul on Ice” Cleaver described his metamorphosis from rapist and drug-dealer to Malcolm X apostle to Marxist revolutionary, who became, virtually overnight, one of the leading exponents of “black liberation” in America."

        Correspondance manuscrite complète d'Henry Miller avec Béatrice Commengé

      - S.n, Pacific Palisades (CA) 1976-1978, 23 pages A4. - Manoscritto autografo firmato, scritto con pennarelli nero, rosso, verde, viola e blu stampati su carta riciclata, con molte aggiunte, correzioni e cancellazioni. 241 pagine, tra cui 238 lamellare e 3 non numerati, formati variabili, principalmente 4to e 8vo unilaterale a volte con annotazioni o collage sul retro, sotto la copertura di salmone con titolo e autografo al montaggio Alex Grall e camicia nera con tag titolo autografo firmato una seconda volta contreplat. Le lamiere forate con occhielli. manoscritto completo della prima versione del Barocco Amore, scritto tra il 18 dicembre 1969 e il 16 giugno 1970, e pubblicato nel mese di aprile 1971 presso René Julliard. Il libro, primo di una trilogia sentimentale che continuerà Ci sono un medico in casa? e L'Angevine, è come un diario. Il suo tema principale, l'amore, è uno dei soggetti preferiti dell'autore. Il narratore, che racconta la sua relazione passionale con una donna piange la morte di sua figlia, gioca con i codici del romanzo, in una lingua truculento e tagliente. Devo ricordarti che le opere di René Fallet, segnata da Rabelais, Molière o Marcel Aymé, ispirati dal loro stile ornato, il film di Michel Audiard, René Clair e Jean Girault? Questo manoscritto, proposto da René Fallet al montaggio Alex Grall, non può essere considerato come un semplice script. Questo è molto più di una creazione plastica che mescola giochi visivi, giochi di parole, collage e disegni (fiori, donne nude, teste grottesche), composto di colore su una moltitudine di carta riciclata. Infatti, Fallet ha raccolto molti fogli di carta intestata (ORTF o la radio belga e televisivi, del Partito comunista francese, edizioni DENOËL o Gallimard, Depeche TV, bicicletta specchio, la squadra, First National City Bank, Francese Corporation Mitologia Intercontinental hotel Düsseldorf ferroviaria nazionale società del Belgio, e altri Ministero degli affari sociali) che utilizza come supporto per il suo manoscritto, creando un effetto grafico e dinamico. Ha anche scritto sul retro di volantini pubblicitari (liquido piatto Paic, tessuti Kleenex), fotografie di stampa originali (Parigi-Roubaix il gruppo nel ciclismo amatoriale, tavolo Wesselmann amatoriali donne nude!), Fotografie di funzionamento film (Fahrenheit 451 di François Truffaut con Julie Christie e Oskar Werner), da copertine di libri (i milanesi uccisi il Sabato dalle Giorgio Scerbanenco, SAS Gérard de Villiers, pensano solo che Georges Wolinski), coperchi I dischi (Avvenga Beatles), di immagini da riviste erotiche o tavole da disegno notizie (Jean-Jacques Sempé). Si arricchisce tutti collages - "Lo studente francese legge molto Camus" - senza dimenticare di installare alcuni ritratti di se stesso, tra cui una fotografia originale con Georges Brassens e un ritratto notevole nudo! Le forme intere immagine volutamente gioiosa, la cultura popolare succosa e caustica a cavallo tra il 1960 e il 1970. Per Fallet, personaggio pittoresco dicendo "tendenza tergicristallo anarchica, da sinistra a destra", prende piacere nel deviare con archetipi humor della modernità (il pin-up, la casalinga, la coppia ideale, sport, ecc), in una mossa che ricorda alcuni movimenti artistici contemporanei ( Pop Art, New Realismo). Il manoscritto presenta varianti importanti con il testo completato. Da un punto di vista strutturale, da un lato, Fallet aver cambiato il taglio dei suoi cento sei capitoli, che vengono poi organizzate in tre parti nella versione pubblicata. Da un punto di vista narrativo, d'altra parte, poiché l'autore gioca con i nomi dei suoi personaggi, ciascuno dei quali è chiamato in vari modi: ad esempio, il marito della eroina talvolta chiamato Jean-Louis, Jean-Claude manoscritto diventano da allora in poi. Inoltre, Fallet riservato suoi margini al fine di registrare le sue correzioni, ma anche per numerare le linee e soprattutto indicare la data di scrittura di ogni passaggio: in modo che possiamo seguire tutti i giorni dal 18 dicembre 1969-16 giugno 1970 avanzata magistrale della sua scrittura. L'ultima foglia, non folioté, è costituito da un elenco di brani rivisto. Infine, il manoscritto rivela che l'ispirazione per questa storia di amore appassionato non è altro che Mette Ivers, illustratrice e lavoro con cui Fallet anche Sempé moglie, il cui nome deriva molto spesso nella parte posteriore delle pagine o nei margini . Stupendo manoscritto straordinariamente composto da René Fallet per creare un oggetto di plastica reale. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Superbe ensemble complet des 17 lettres autographes signées d'Henry Miller et adressées à l'écrivain Béatrice Commengé, auteur notamment de Henry Miller, ange, clown, voyou et traductrice de nombreuses

        Wyeth at Kuerners

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1976. First edition. Illustrated by Andrew Wyeth. Oblong 4to. Olive buckram. Fine, in very good dust jacket. First edition. Illustrated by Andrew Wyeth. Oblong 4to. Inscribed on half-title to Lincoln Kirstein, "For Lincoln with love - / Betsy." Kirstein, who was on the board of MoMA, met Andrew Wyeth after the museum acquired CHRISTINA'S WORLD in 1948. Wyeth was still largely unknown at that time, and he quickly came to rely on Kirstein for support and honest criticism of his work. "Kirstein appointed himself Wyeth's friend, admirer, mentor, and stern critic - in essence a supersuccessor to NC. [...] Wyeth thinks that in the 1950s he needed Kirstein to push him toward more form in his work, more solidity" (Meryman, p.239, 243). Kirstein, who disdained most abstract art, was essential in providing Wyeth the confidence he needed to continue work in the face of hostile critics who derided his art as sentimental and unsophisticated. Wyeth was fond of quoting Kirstein's dismissive opinion of the critics, "Why do you want approval from those horses' asses?" (ibid, p. 390). Kirstein was a father-figure to two generations of Wyeth artists, and as Andrew's son Jamie developed his own artistic gifts, Kirstein began to transfer his attention to the younger Wyeth. "After posing for nineteen-year-old Jamie, Kirstein more or less shifted his allegiance from Andrew and became Jamie's friend and mentor. Kirstein told Betsy, 'You gave me the only son I ever had'" (ibid, p. 275). Meryman, Andrew Wyeth: A Secret Life (1998)

        The Winchester Malory: A Facsimile

      London: Early English Text Society, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. Large, thick 4to. First edition. Gilt-lettered cloth boards. Facsimile of the 473-leaf manuscript. Cloth lightly rubbed, else this is a fine copy. Except for the introduction by Ker, the book is comprised entirely of photographs of the celebrated manuscript. The introduction discusses not only the paper and writing, but also the history of the manuscript, 'discovered' in 1934. It was known for at least 100 years prior to that date as a copy of the Morte d'Arthur, but dismissed as a defective copy of the text used by Caxton. In 1934 it was shown that the Winchester manuscript is a separate text from Caxton's, differing in many details. This full photographic reproduction is in black and white, but two plates are printed in red as well, to show the unusual scribal technique of using red ink for certain names and phrases. Uncommon in the first edition. Gaines A25.

        A collection of his first editions in superb condition.

      London & New York: various publishers, 1898–1976 - 22 works in 50 volumes, octavo format, various sizes. All in the original cloth (except The People's Rights, in original wrappers). With the dust jackets where issued (except The River War). Generally in exceptional condition. Photgraphic plates and maps throughout. An exceptional collection of all the main texts in the Churchill corpus, in superb condition throughout, including one of only two known copies of Lord Randolph Churchill (1906) in the dust jacket, and one of only three such copies of Liberalism and the Social Problem (1909, one of these being substantially damaged). Further rarities include the case-bound issue of India (1930), in the extremely uncommon dust jacket, a copy of his 1910 pamphlet The People's Rights, in the original wrappers, and genuinely fine copies of most titles, from his first published book, The Story of the Malakand Field Force (1898), to My Early Life (1930), his first book of sustained biography, in the dust jacket, together with superlative examples of his works from the Wilderness Years. There are also excellent jacketed sets of his great voluminous titles, notably The World Crisis (1923–31) and Marlborough (1933–8). In almost all instances the given copy is the best we have handled. These copies were originally collected by Mark Weber (d. 2016), who during more than 30 years trading as the Churchill Book Specialist kept back for his own private collection the best available copy of each Churchill title. The result is a once-in-a-generation collecting opportunity. An individual catalogue description for each book is available on request. a) The Story of the Malakand Field Force. London, New York & Bombay: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1898. First edition, home issue, sole printing, first state. Original cloth, a superlative copy: "Truly fine copies are extreme rarities, and even those with routine wear and tear are difficult to find" (Langworth). Cohen A1.1.a. b) The River War. London, New York and Bombay: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899. First edition, first impression, second state. 2 vols., original cloth, a remarkably tight and fresh copy: "the heavy pages put a lot of strain on the binding, and many copies are found with hinge or gutter breaks" (Langworth). From the library of Scotttish peer and soldier John Stewart-Murray, 7th Duke of Atholl (1840–1917), whose son served in the Sudan. Cohen A2.1.b. c) Savrola. New York: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. First edition in book form, first printing, of Churchill's only novel. Original cloth, an excellent copy. Cohen A3.1.a. d) Savrola. London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1900. First UK edition in book form (printed from the American plates), first impression, first state. Original cloth, a very attractive copy of a book increasingly hard to find in collectable condition. Cohen A3.2.a. e) London to Ladysmith via Pretoria. London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1900. First edition, first impression. Original cloth, small spot to front board, but an excellent copy. "A splendid book both aesthetically and from a literary standpoint, the Ladysmith is one of the most sought-after titles in the canon" (Langworth). Cohen A4.1.a. f) Ian Hamilton's March. London: Longmans, Green, and Co, 1900. First edition, first impression, first issue of the sequel to Ladysmith. Original cloth, an exceptionally bright copy, entirely unfaded. "A very good copy is a scarcity and a fine one is truly rare" (Langworth). Cohen A8.1.a. g) Lord Randolph Churchill. London: Macmillan and Co. Limited, 1906. First edition, sole impression, first-issue binding. 2 vols., original cloth, one of only two copies known in the original dust jackets. An exceptionally fine copy of a book "rarely found in pristine condition" (Langworth). After The River War, this is the earliest Churchill title for which dust jackets are recorded. With a fine copy of the first US edition, sole printing (no jackets known). Cohen A17.1–2. h) My African Journey. London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1908.

        The Collected Essays of Sir Winston Churchill, complete in four volumes

      London: Library of Imperial History, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. This exceptional set of ChurchillÂ’s Collected Essays is among the best-preserved examples of the vellum bindings we have seen. This four-volume set is a compilation of most of Churchill's major forewords and periodical contributions, some of which can be otherwise found only in the original periodical publications. The essays are sorted by subject and each of the volumes has a theme - Churchill and War, Churchill and Politics, Churchill and People, and Churchill at Large. In addition to being bibliographically important, The Collected Essays are aesthetically appealing. The production quality is impressive. There were two publisher binding options for The Collected Essays - both sumptuous and one positively extravagant. The lesser of the two was bound in quarter blue morocco and is lovely, but does not match the other 34 volumes of The Collected Works. The more elaborate binding option was full natural calfskin vellum with individual green slipcases, matching the 34 volumes of the preceding Centenary Edition of Churchill's book-length works. The bindings feature Churchill's coat of arms stamped in gilt. The text is printed on special 500-year archival paper and decorated with marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, head and foot bands, and silk ribbon markers. Each volume is protected in a dark green leather slipcase with the Churchill coat of arms embossed in gilt on the front cover. Either binding of The Collected Essays is scarce, but this more elaborate binding is rarely seen alone, as it is essential to completing a uniform full set of The Collected Works. The vellum bindings were meant to tone and age naturally, but often yellow both considerably and unevenly. This is only the second time we have been able to offer a set this compellingly bright and clean. The bindings are pristine with unusually bright vellum showing no appreciable signs of toning or handling, perfectly square and tight with sharp corners and no visible wear. Shelf presentation is magnificent, the spines sparklingly bright and clean. Condition of the set appears flawless. The contents are likewise immaculate, crisp and apparently unread, with satin ribbon markers apparently still in the original position placed by the publisher. We find no previous ownership marks. The gilt page edges are vividly bright with no discernible flaws noted. The green leather slipcases of this edition are likewise exceptionally clean, with only a few trivial scuffs and bumps to extremities. An exceptional example of an important work, with both compelling contents and striking shelf presence. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A286, Woods/ICS A146(b), Langworth p.355.

        Correspondance manuscrite complète d'Henry Miller avec Béatrice Commengé

      S.n 1976 - - S.n, Pacific Palisades (CA) 1976-1978, 23 pages A4. - Superbe ensemble complet des 17 lettres autographes signées d'Henry Miller et adressées à l'écrivain Béatrice Commengé, auteur notamment de Henry Miller, ange, clown, voyou et traductrice de nombreuses œuvres d'Anaïs Nin. On joint une enveloppe autographe adressée par Henry Miller à Béatrice Commengé et une lettre autographe signée d'Anaïs Nin à Béatrice Commengé. En 1976, Béatrice Commengé, alors jeune étudiante en lettres, entreprend la rédaction d'une thèse consacrée à Anaïs Nin et Henry Miller. Depuis son village périgourdin, elle écrit à l'une et à l'autre. Nin, très souffrante, regrette de ne pouvoir l'aider. Miller, par contre, se laisse d'abord séduire à l'idée d'échanger avec une habitante de Domme, village dont il avait autrefois célébré la beauté dans Le Colosse de Maroussi. Très rapidement, impressionné par la perspicacité et le style de l'étudiante, il engage avec elle une correspondance qu'ils entretiendront jusqu'à ce que, deux ans avant sa mort, la vue d'Henry Miller se dégrade définitivement et l'empêche de lire et d'écrire. À cette époque, Miller, âgé de quatre-vingt-cinq ans, vit presque reclus à Pacific Palisades en Californie, rejetant l'american way of life et ses illusions, redoutant les trop fréquentes sollicitations. Mais le vieil écrivain est très vite charmé par le regard que porte Commengé sur son œuvre : « You are a gem ! One of the very few ''fanas'' to understand me. Merci ! Merci mille fois ! », écrit-il dès la seconde lettre. Une véritable amitié épistolaire se noue alors entre le vieil écrivain et la jeune muse : « I think of you as some sort of terrestrial angel » ; « what a delight to get a letter from you » ; « Keep writing me, please ! » Dans des lettres passionnées rédigées dans tous les sens, où l'anglais se mèle au français, les mots sont soulignés, les parenthèses et les exclamations abondent et les post-scriptum sont ajoutés dans les marges, Miller se penche sur ses souvenirs et sur son œuvre. Refusant une correspondance purement universitaire, « To be honest with you, I don't think either A.N. or I, who are naturally very truthful persons, really succeeded with truth as it is conventionally thought of. We are both confirmed «fabulators». » Miller recommande à la jeune femme ses nouvelles lectures et ses vieux amis, « [Lawrence] Durrel is the friend to talk to about me, [.] he knows me inside out » ; [he] is wonderful when you get to know him. éblouissant même » ; « that great master of the french language - Joseph Delteil » ; « Delteil is almost a saint. But a lively one. » ; « Alf[red Perlès] is the clown, the buffoon, who made me laugh every day ». Puis il la félicite d'abandonner son projet didactique au profit d'un « imaginary book about me » et engage une correspondance bien plus intime. Il lui confie ainsi ses étonnements : « Did you read about the french prostitutes protesting and demonstrating in Paris against my receving [the legion of honor] ? They say I did not treat them well in my books. And I thougth I had ! ! ». Il partage ses gouts littéraires : « I prefer the Welsh. They are the last of the poets ». Il met également en garde la future traductrice d'Anais Nin, contre la dualité de son ancienne maîtresse: « She is or was a complete enigma, absolutely dual. [.] Actually, I suppose there is always this dichotomy between the person and the writer », lui confiant ses secrets : « she is slowly dyin (of cancer) she refuses to admit it. (This is entre nous !) » et révélant ses nouveaux amours : « I am in love with a very beautiful chinese actress [.]. I seem to go from one to another, never totally defeated, never wholly satisfied. But this is near ''eternal'' love as I've never been. » En effet, malgré son grand âge, l'auteur de Sexus n'a rien perdu de sa passion pour le beau sexe et celui de sa correspondante n'échappe pas à ce Don Juan : « On est curieux - êtes-vous belle etc., je crois que oui. En tout cas je vous pr [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
