        Le Prince, les délices des c?urs ou Traité des qualités d'un grand roi, et système général d'un sage gouvernement

      Rare first edition, published in astéronyme, although complete its brochure picture of the "General Tariff taxes a million topics."Binders early nineteenth in full brown sheepskin rooted, back smooth ornate coffered and gilded nets and title piece and black and khaki volume numbers, golden roulette coaching boards, all sprinkled edges red.Some lacks on the back, two capping head and a missing tail, corners a bit.Etienne Gabriel Morelly, the "unsung Enlightenment" (Wagner, Morelly the unsung Enlightenment, 1978) - has long been attributed some of his writings Diderot - is nowadays recognized as the first to have developed a philosophy of socialism or the also called utopian socialism communism.This political treatise, very inspired by the shape of the Prince of Machiavelli, is made ??up of four distinct parts: the citizen prince, Prince legislator and magistrate, political prince and warrior prince. It takes the appearance of a fictional dialogue between a prince named Thélémédone (or Delight of hearts), his courtiers and confidant. There are in fact the names and meanings of different debaters won the first volume. Morelly precedes the text of a brief "Letter to a Friend" in which he explains the structure of the book:- The nature, duties and benefits of the powerful sovereignty- The qualities of mind and heart that must be common to monarchs and other deadly- The prince as a figure of the legislator and the magistrate who holds council deliberates with his friends on important projects and delegates the reforms necessary for the functioning of the state before validating laws (birth of the government).- The means to provide equity through policy, to strengthen the royal authority, to predict and prevent bowel disorders of the state, making the constant harmony and sustainable government and deal and negotiate with neighboring and distant foreign powers- The just reasons for war and the different parts of military artNote, however, that unlike the traditional "mirrors for princes" this opinion is addressed to any particular personality. This failure demonstrates that the author will present a political project - that of his patron the Prince de Conti - more than provide advice to a young monarch. In the real key to text so the reader assists through the first part, a conversation between Louis XV-Thélémédone and Conti-Philoménarque. Consequently, the four faces of the prince set out above, correspond to specific points of the governance of Louis XV and echo the Prince Conti situation in 1750. Similarly, the ten characters with exotic names dialogue with Prince are faithful reflections of ten ministers constituting the royal council at that time (see about the very thrust Guy Antonetti study, "Étienne-Gabriel Morelly the writer and his protectors" in Literary History of France Review 84th Year, No. 1 (Jan. - Feb. 1984), pp 19-52).. Elmore D also defended the thesis that "the writings [Morelly] form a very built together expressing" political views of the Prince de Conti, is clearly (Prince) or allegory (the Basiliade, the Code) or finally implicitly (Letters of Louis XIV). (Elmore D, A Story of Enlightenment to the country of Liege, 2007). Hence we have an increase in the writer Morelly career that, until then, only offered moralists texts oriented pedagogy. The change occurs when the Peace of Aachen (1748) and before the supremacy of the Marquise de Pompadour. Conti, who acts as adviser to King since 1747, is being supplanted by it.Thus Morelly, supporting the cause of Conti, started a political career of writer freed from monarchical power. It is not an "adventurer of the pen" or a "marginal" that made ??this prince but a political philosopher fully aware of the problems of his time. Despite its fanciful shape allegedly the work sometimes reduced to a utopia is actually a realistic reflection on the necessary reforms of power formation of the government, foreign and domestic policy, social progress ... Until the precise calculation of taxes (shown in a table flyer) Morelly developing a rational plan and well documented and thus participates in the great political and social reforms of the Enlightenment.A few years later, in 1755, he published his famous code of the nature in which he submits an ideal and unique legal system abolishing private property in favor of a fraternal society ensuring the happiness of mankind.Rediscovered in the twentieth century, this radical thinking will be considered as the first socialist program in the history of France, and its author erected to the rank of mythical precursor of the modern communist thoughts.If he did not know fame, yet he inspired great progressive figures, Rousseau wrote his Social Contract in the light of its work, the conventional Babeuf, the "first communist acting" (Marx) who demanded of him called the "forgotten philosopher of the Enlightenment."Extremely rare copy of the first major political text Morelly.  Aux dépens de la compagnie à Amsterdam 1751 in-8 (10,5x16,5cm) ix (3) 168pp. (7) et (4) 188pp. (12) 2 volumes reliés

        Typescript of "The Farmer Snows the Fugitive, Or, Square Dancing in the Ice Age"

      [ca. 1978-1982]. Undated, ca. 1978-1982. 21-page typescript of a section of Hoffman's 1982 book, Square Dancing in the Ice Age, representing about 14 pages of the published book. Seven pages here are photocopied or at least on heavier paper than the onionskin typescript, but most of those, as well as most of the original onionskin pages, have numerous corrections in Hoffman's hand and in another, unknown, hand. Most of these changes were made prior to publication, and still this version has textual differences from the published version. Large paperclip marks on the first page, otherwise very near fine. A substantial manuscript from one of the key counterculture figures of the 1960s. No Binding. Near Fine.

Generally very good overall.

With its austere production and design (by Bernstein's wife Susan Laufer/Bee), in many ways the clearest expression of the aesthetic and the moment the movement fully matured. Contributors include: Lyn Hejinian, Ray DiPalma, Larry Eigner, Bob Perelman, Ron Silliman, Kathy Acker, Rae Armantrout, Jackson Mac Low, Bernadette Mayer, Rosemary Waldrop, Douglas Messerli, Dick Higgins, Clark Coolidge, Jerome Rothenberg, Barrett Watten, Susan Howe, among many others. With fewer than 200 copies printed for each of the earliest issues, complete runs are quite uncommon, especially with subscriber ephemera. [Clay and Phillips 235].

        "Chassé - croisé".

      1978 1Gouache signée en bas à droite, titrée au verso, cachet de l'artiste au verso, s.d., 42.5 x 30 cm. Maquette réalisée par l'artiste Michel GOURDON (1925-2011), illustrateur, avec son frère ASLAN, notamment dans Playboy, Paris-Flirt, Nous Deux et Lui. Cette gouache une maquette pour la couverture du livre de Pierre Martin PERREAU, "Chassé-croisé", paru en 1976 aux éditions Fleuve Noir dont GOURDON sera le dessinateur officiel de 1949 à 1978. Il utilise les yeux de Michèle MORGAN qu'il isole face à un embouteillage de taxis. La maquette est remarquablement efficace, GOURDON disant "la couverture d'un livre, c'est comme une affiche, elle doit faire vendre". Il arrête sa carrière prolixe de "stakhanoviste du pinceau" en 1978, lorsque la photographie remplace le dessin sur les couvertures de livres.

      1978 - Mixed media on blue composition board. Signed "Arbib 73" or "Arbib 78" A Richard Arbib personal luxury car, modelled on the Cadillac Eldorado It's not clear whether the written date on this piece is 73 or 78, but it is definitely by Richard Arbib and definitely in keeping with the look of the 1970's Cadillac Eldorados. In the license plate spot, he has written "Dorade" and there are two shields very similar in shape to the Cadillac emblem. The Dorade is a Mediterranean Bass, the Dorado is a much larger fish known also as the dolphinfish and mahi-mahi. Eldorado however comes from El Dorado, the mythical City of Gold, thought by the conquistadors to exist in South America. Arbib's "Dorade" has nice lines and unusual features. The car is a large two door coupe with a huge hatchback type back window that extends over the trunk. The back lights are recessed into new style fins that extend backwards but not above the plane of the trunk. There are stylized sun roofs above driver and passenger. There are two views given, one from the side and one from the back. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Bangkok b/w Can't Seem to Make You Mine (Original artwork, with single)

      Lust / Unlust, New York 1978 - Archive of artwork, photography, overlays, and layout design for the vinyl 45 RPM single release of Alex Chilton's "Bangkok" b/w "Can't Seem to Make You Mine." Includes the original silver gelatin photograph used for the cover artwork, with a credit for the photography studio at 30 St. Marks Place in New York City rubber-stamped in red on the verso. Included is a copy of the resulting 7-inch record in its picture sleeve as issued.Recorded in 1977, and released in 1978 on Charles Ball's Lust/Unlust label, with the "Fun" label (a design gleefully appropriating Sam Phillips' "Sun" Records logo) applied as a joke. A classic single from the New York underground scene, recorded during Chilton's New York residency of the late 1970s, combining his experimental instincts with a rockabilly/no wave aesthetic. The A-side, "Bangkok," stands as one of Chilton's most irresistable and infectious rock songs, making famous reference to Johnny Thunders' "Chinese Rocks." The B-side, a warbly, warped deconstruction of a 1965 recording by the American psychedelic pop band The Seeds, is more along the lines of Chilton's 1977 EP, "The Singer Not the Song," and the magnum opus LP that would follow, "Like Flies on Sherbert." Layout materials Very Good to Near Fine. 7-inch record Near Fine in a Very Good example of the original picture sleeve.

        Kaddish and Other Poems.

      San Francisco: City Lights Books,, July 1978. Small quarto. Original white wrappers printed in black. A little rubbed around the extremities, very good condition. Inscribed by Ginsberg on the title page, "Allen Ginsberg, for Carl Laszlo Basel 1980, December 4, with representation of his experiences in Concentration Camp, the world of art & aesthetics", also with an original drawing of a skull-and-crossbones within a hexagram, accompanied by a flower and the mantra "Om Ah Hum". Carl Laszlo (1923-2013) was a Jewish Hungarian art collector who survived several concentration camps including Auschwitz, Sachsenhausen and Buchenwald. After the war he set himself up as a psychoanalyst and art collector in Basel, also becoming politically involved with the displaced Dalai Lama in the 1950s, and involving himself in the American counterculture scene in the 1960s. His concentration camp memoirs are published under the darkly ironic title Holiday on Waldsee, and his childhood memoirs under the title The Way to Auschwitz. A compelling association. This copy is of the sixteenth printing, first printed in 1961.
