Square octavo, first edition, pp. 112, brown pebble-grain leatherette boards with gilt lettering on top and spine, mounted color photo on top. Essay by John Szarkowski.

They wrote that this show and book 'heralded the birth of colour photography, or more accurately, it marked the moment when it was perceived as artistically respectable.' They add that Szarkowski's essay here is one of his most adroit. Condition of this book: Minor spine slant, age toning at edges. Boards near fine with a few faint areas of rubbing at extremities.

John Baldessari, born National City, California, 17 June 1931, is well known for using disparate elements of everyday life in his photographically generated works of art. In this, one of his earliest printed artists' books, he juxtaposes three images in a linear format using two photographic portraits of a younger and older man facing each other with a photograph of a common household object between them. Each leaf repeats the same portraits but illustrates a different "murder weapon": a kitchen knife, a wooden board, a magnifying glass, a book of matches, pushpins, etc. Baldessari lives and works in Santa Monica, California.

SIGNED and INSCRIBED by JIMMY REED "Jimmy Reed" / "To the Boss". Original signed flyer on blue paper, measures 8 1/2" x 14". GOOD CONDITION: light wear from age and handling, pinholes at the corners, pinhole with 1/2" chip/tear at upper corner (probably from being pulled off wall), and one horizontal fold. Jimmy Reed's signature is strongly penned in dark blue ink, the inscription starts strong but the ink fades (the pen probably ran out of ink) but is still legible. Scarce. Mathis James "Jimmy" Reed (1925-1976) Important American Blues Musician and Songwriter, notable for bringing his distinctive style of blues to mainstream audiences. Reed is an archetype of the genre, born in the rural Mississippi Delta, he is considered one of the most influential blues musician of his era. He was posthumously inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1980, and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991. Jimmy Reed's blues standards include "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby," "Big Boss Man," "Bright Lights Big City," "Honest I Do," and "Baby What You Want Me to Do." Reed placed 11 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 pop charts and a total of 14 on the R&B charts. Many of his songs have been covered by blues, rock and roll, and pop artists including the Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, the Grateful Dead, the Yardbirds, Charlie Rich, Lou Rawls, Tom Petty, Hank Williams, Jr., and his unique sound directly influenced Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, the Animals, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, the Eagles, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Slim Harpo, and others. Reed's career was hampered by health and drinking problems. He died on August 29, 1976 in Oakland, California while on a West Coast comeback tour that included venues like the West Dakota Club in Berkeley, the Bodega in San Jose, and the Savoy Tivoli in San Francisco. He was only 50 years old, just one week before his 51 birthday. Berkeley's The West Dakota Club, 1505 San Pablo Avenue (former site of The New Orleans House) was a popular 1970's venue where iconic musicians such as Bo Didley, Steve Miller, Norton Buffalo, Roadhog, Boz Scaggs, John Cipolinna, Les Dudek, Joe Henderson, Queen Ida, Johnny Charles Burris, Charlie Musselwhite, Bonnie Raitt, and many others performed. Grayson Street, the opening act for Jimmy Reed, was a 1970's East Bay band fronted by blues saxophonist Terry Hanck. From the collection of the late Peter Howard, noted antiquarian book dealer, and owner of Serendipity Books, legendary Berkeley bookstore, now closed. Good .

        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."
