        12 acqueforti. Dickens-Christmas

      Edizioni di Vanni Scheiwiller, 1979. Con uno scritto di Mirando Haz in italiano e inglese. 12 acqueforti originali, numerate e firmate a matita, di Mirando Haz (cm 24x18). 4to (cm 40x28). pp. 16 + incisioni. Dedica e firma autografe dell'Autore (Inscribed and signed by the Author). Ottimo (Fine). Prima ed. di 80 es. numerati e firmati dall'A. "È in questa giornata centrale dell?anno che sembra concentrarsi, avvolgendosi e contorcendosi, negli arabeschi più intricati e misteriosi, nei suoni più flautati e modulati, nelle luci più bianche di specchi e argenterie, il monosillabo terribile, velenoso e intransigente, su cui si annidano i delitti degli uomini contro il prossimo, quel monosillabo secco, imperativo e decisivo che è il no. Questo aspro preambolo è necessario per scandagliare, nel profondo e nell?essenza, il clima natalizio delle opere di Charles Dickens. Un clima d'angoscia e di solitudine che, nelle notti avare d'amore, l'infelice acquafortista ha cesellato con intrecci spinosi, con maschere arroventate, con pugnali avvelenati, per esorcizzare le vibrazioni negative del giorno più solenne dell'anno" (dallo scritto di Haz).

Artist's book by Herms, in which for one year one drawing a day was created based on Sabian symbols originally received by clairvoyant Elsie Wheeler, along with psychological text interpretations of each symbol by Dane Rudyhar.

        Neil Armstrong, dressed in his NASA spacesuit, signed and inscribed color photo

Small paper clip indention to upper right corner.Verso of photo has the official National Aeronautics and Space Administration stamp, and typed description of ""Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong was named by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration as the prime crew commander of the Apollo 11 lunar landing mission. He was one of nine astronauts selected by NASA in September, 1962"". Verso also contains a note by Ronald Wade ""First Man On the Moon/Received 10-17-79"". 8"" x 10"". From the spectacular, unprecedented collection of Ronald Ellis Wade. Near fineA wonderful inscribed color photo of Neil Armstrong in his Nasa spacesuit holding his helmet with an image of the moon in the background. Signed and inscribed to Ron Wade, who once served as a White House page for President Nixon. Inscribed as ""To Ron Wade/With All Good Wishes/Neil Armstrong"" Below is an interesting interview from, about Ron Wade and his collection of Presidential memorabilia:Step into Ronald Wade’s office and it’s easy to see why he’s listed in “Guinness World Records 2015” for the largest collection of U.S. presidential memorabilia — it’s really a replica of the Oval Office.“Actually, they quit counting,” Wade says of his immense collection of White House and presidential campaign items, “because I probably have closer to 20,000 or 30,000 items, if not closer to 100,000 — that’s with duplication.” The official count from the folks behind the famed book puts Wade’s collection in chief at 6,960 pieces as of last year.The lifelong Republican has been racking up “practically anything that has to do with American politics” since he was 10 years old.“My first memory in life is wearing an ‘I Like Ike’ button, and I was probably 4 years old. So I’ve always been interested in politics,” Wade, 64, tells ITK.The retired Texas Department of Human Services supervisor says he counts former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush as friends. His most prized item in the collection is from the 41st commander in chief’s failed 1964 Senate bid.“He had a group of young ladies that campaigned for him, the Bush Belles,” Wade says in his heavy Lone Star State twang, “So I have the only known Bush Belles outfit that’s around. Even the Bush Library doesn’t have one.”“George W. has been to my house, and seen my collection, and was quite impressed,” boasts Wade, who has also donated several pieces from his massive memorabilia stockpile to the George W. Bush Presidential Library outside Dallas.The collector extraordinaire says he “pays for his habit” by selling extra collectibles he’s acquired over the years, but he never hawks anything that he “loves.”While much of the public might be disillusioned with warring politicians, Wade — who once served as a White House page for then-President Nixon — says talk of partisan bickering in Washington is overblown: “The friction between parties has been here as long as America has been here.”"

        HOWL, For Carl Solomon

      New York: Gotham Book Mart, circa 1979. First edition, second issue, unauthorized. no binding. Very good. 2 leaves, printed on rectos only in purple ink: [1] title, [2] dedication to Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs, Neal Cassady and Lucien Carr. The Title page signed by Allen Ginsberg, with the signature and a note by Marthe Rexroth: "I cranked the ditto master at S F State the first time around -and! was at the reading". On the verso of the title, McClure has written the lengthy note: "This first long poem of Allen's was read at the Six Gallery in San Francisco in October 1955. I was 22 years old and gave my first reading also that night. I read a poem titled FOR THE DEATHS OF 100 WHALES and other poems of nature and new consciousness. Our co-readers that night were Whalen, Snyder, & Lamantia. Kenneth Rexroth was M.C. I met Jack Kerouac that night. The group of us - minus Lamantia - read again in Berkeley, March 1956, on a rainy evening. It was a fine evening for poetry and I remember my pleasure in Allen's comic 'America'. I read mostly from a huge notebook of experimental poems of consciousness. Michael McClure." On the dedication page are the signatures of Philip Lamantia, Gary Snyder, Philip Whalen, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and an inscription by David Meltzer: "When Allen first read Kaddish in SF, I read too. I was 22." McClure, Snyder, Lamantia and Whalen read at the Six Gallery the same night Ginsberg read "Howl," and Ferlinghetti published its first trade edition through his City Lights Press in 1956. Two leaves in a frame for presentation, the McClure "essay" on the verso of the title sheet viewable through a cutout on the back of the foam mounting. The Marthe Rexroth statement with Allen Ginsberg's signature on the title page; the McClure essay on verso; Lamantia, Snyder, Whalen, Ferlinghetti have signed the dedication page, Doug Meltzer has added his brief note (and drawing) about his reading in 1956 when AG first read KADDISH. Promoted (though promotion in this case was a 100 postcards and posters at bars on North Beach including the offer of free admission, the hat passed for the wine - a "Charming event.". In the audience was Jack Kerouac who by has own account in THE DHARMA BUMS and by others was quite drunk) as "6 Poets at 6 Gallery", five poets read with Snyder reading from MYTHS & TEXTS last following AG's first reading in public of HOWL. Kenneth Rexroth was the sixth, the elder acting as m.c. Ferlinghetti the next day sent AG a telegram: " I greet you at the beginning of a great career. When do I get the manuscript?" He published in 1956, and was greeted not long after with obscenity charges from which he and his store manager ShIg Murao were acquitted in October 1957. Peter Howard of Serendipity Books, Berkeley, handled at least one complete mimeo copy with similarities to this presentation (see below). This copy bought via another dealer who bought this directly from Mr. Howard a decade or more ago. Why just the title and dedication pages is a question only the late great bookseller could answer, but clearly his hand is in the signatures added to at least one complete copy, and the addition of the Philip Lamantia signature to the present offering. Needless to say rare, and a wonderful addition to any Beat collection. This second issue was produced without Ginsberg's permission by Gotham Book Mart using the original ditto master obtained when they were appraising the poet's papers. The project was aborted, Ginsberg told according to his bibliographer that most copies were destroyed and none sold. Copies are known to exist with and without a Gotham Book Mart stamp. Without the stamp it is very difficult to distinguish it from the original. Peter Howard acquired at least four sets (17 pages each printed on one side) of unstapled, unstamped, sheets in 1995 and had them signed and in some cases inscribed. Ginsberg was given one, three other complete sets were offered for sale. The present offering (title and dedication sheets) clearly done at the same time, although The Lamantia signature is not on all the sets. The first edition in either issue is rare. The first printing of HOWL typed by Robert Creeley run off by Marthe Rexroth on a mimeograph machine at S F State was reportedly only 25 copies, and produced and sent to the friends of the poet about three months prior to the City Lights edition. It is rare: no copies located on WorldCat (although surely some are held in institutions). We know of three copies at auction. Lot 140 Christie's NYC auction of 6 Dec., 2013, with a Peter Howard provenance which consisted of 15 leaves printed on rectos only, signed or inscribed (similarly to the present copy) by Marthe Rexroth, Snyder, Ferlinghetti, Meltzer and Whalen with the McClure essay on verso (as with Berkeley copy - see below), but not Lamantia sold for $118,750. Another copy at Bonham's auction of 12 Aug. 2012, inscribed by Ginsberg only sold for $74,500, inc. premium. The Duncan copy was auctioned in 1977. The only copy located on WorldCat for the second issue (and clearly identified as such) is at California's Bancroft Library, and from the description one of the three Peter Howard copies. One of the three Howard copies is offered by Brick Row Book Shop, San Francisco for $37,500. [N.B. I am grateful to Jeff Maser for sharing his knowledge regarding the second issue of HOWL, and for sending me the useful link regarding the Brick Row Book Shop copy with a thorough description of the aborted Gotham issue and the making of the Peter Howard copies as cataloged by John Crichton.

        Sixteen Sonnets

      Cambridge: Halty Ferguson. 1979. First. First edition. Orange cloth with printed title label. Text block fallen slightly forward, else fine. Copy letter T of 26 lettered copies Signed by the author. Additionally Inscribed by Updike to Herb Yellin. 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. .
