Die durften die Siedlungshäuschen selber hochziehen, wussten freilich nicht, in welches sie später einziehen würden - darüber entschied das Los. Auch wenn sich seither baulich vieles verändert hat, und die Nachfahren der ersten "Siedler" längst nicht mehr unter sich sind, hat sich in dem Wormser Stadtbezirk doch ein Wir-Gefühl erhalten. Dafür sorgt nicht zuletzt der Siedlerverein.

Inscribed to Gary Lucas at the bottom edge: "to LUCAS from Don / NY Great House / VV / 82."10.75 x 13.75 inches, spiral spine perforation along the top edge. Near Fine.Gary Lucas was the principal guitar player, along with Jeff Moris Tepper, in Captain Beefheart's final configuration of the Magic Band, appearing prominently on Beefheart's last two recordings, "Doc at the Radar Station" (1980) and "Ice Cream for Crow" (1982). Lucas' solo guitar performances of "Flavor Bud Living" and "Evening Bell" on the respective recordings are singular in Beefheart's ouevre. Lucas managed and performed with Beefheart for five years, until Van Vliet retired to Trinidad, California to be a full-time painter in the mid-1980s. During their association, well before he gained notoriety as a painter, Beefheart spontaneously created drawings for Lucas, typically using colored markers, and typically reflecting the situation where the drawing was being made, either literally or on some abstract level. Accompanied by an explanatory letter of provenance from Lucas. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Nan Britton Papers: An Archive of Letters, Typescripts, and Documents (including personal copies of The President's Daughter)

      (California) 1982 - An important archive of papers belonging to Nan Britton, author of the sensational tell-all bestseller of 1927: *The President's Daughter* (in which she named Warren Harding the father of her illegitimate daughter and described their nearly seven years long affair in great detail), and an early champion for the cause of securing legal rights for unwed mothers and their illegitimate children. The archive contains personal and professional correspondence, several unpublished and annotated working typescripts, and Britton's personal copies of *The President's Daughter* (including a first edition copy with a pagination error and missing pages, likely resulting from when the Society for the Suppression of Vice seized the printer's plates and printed sheets), and of her second book *Honesty or Politics*. The collection consists of about one linear foot of material housed by Britton into file folders and stationery boxes with her explanatory manuscript and typed notes.The collection documents Britton's life-long crusade for justice on behalf of children born out of wedlock, and to support her claim (only now confirmed by DNA testing in 2015), that Harding had fathered her daughter Elizabeth Ann shortly before his election as President in 1920. Included are special selected letters from Eleanor Roosevelt, Alfred Kinsey, Bertha Van Hoosen, Clarence Darrow, and several leading figures in child welfare legislation, along with 100 letters, mostly from women, who were inspired by *The President's Daughter* to tell of their own personal experience of having an illegitimate child and the ensuing social stigma they had to contend with. Also included is a separate folder of letters and ephemera from the radio celebrities The McDowell Sisters (known as "Sweethearts of the Air"), who befriended Britton and Elizabeth Ann after they read the book.Included among the unpublished typescripts are two complete variant versions of *Her Father's Daughter: The Life Story of Maria Malibran* (each totaling nearly 600 pages), Britton's biography of the celebrated opera singer Malibran, perhaps the most famous woman of the 19th century to have an illegitimate child. Also among the typescripts is the only known copy of *Stories* by Britton's daughter Elizabeth Ann (consisting of about 40 stories from 1928), several chapters from Britton's unpublished autobiography: *Stony Limits*, and two of Britton's unfinished historical surveys of bastardy: *A Thousand Years of Trial and Error: the politics that have perpetuated illegitimacy and The Prehistoric Mother: and the emergence of the "illegitimate" child*. Other shorter transcripts include: *The Illegitimate Child*, and *An Open Letter to Mr. Ashley Montagu* in which Britton disputes Montagu's radical theory (made in his 1969 book: Sex, Man & Society) that the birth control pill will provide the basis for the humanization of the male.A historically important and compelling archive of papers belonging to Nan Britton, who scandalized the country with her account of carnal adventures in the White House, and which *TIME* critic Robert Plunket has recently declared to be "a true American classic, the first modern political tell-all and a book of inestimable importance when it comes to our country's gender wars." A detailed list of the archive is available upon request.

With fantastic content: Dahl writes that he has never been really happy with the illustrations in ?the Charlie books? and it would be ?a pretty exciting thing to see what Quentin Blake would do with them.

Dahl continues with regards to the flat fee for illustrating The BFG before noting, ?I have become good friends with him and he is a very nice fellow to work with.? In the next paragraph Dahl offers a mouth-watering hint: ?There is a beginning of ?Charlie in the White House? and one day I rather hope that I will get round to finishing it...? Signed ?Roald? in black ink. The letter is in very good condition, with three horizontal folds. An exceptional letter in respect of both content and association.

        Kiku Exhibition Catalog

      Tokyo: Gendai Hanga Center. First Edition. Original cloth. Fine. FIRST EDITION, WITH STUNNING ORIGINAL SILKSCREEN PRINT BY WARHOL, of the catalog for Warhol's celebrated "Kiku" Tokyo exhibition. Capitalizing on Warhol's strong appeal to Japanese collectors, members of the Gendai Hanga Center in Tokyo asked Warhol in 1982 to create a body of work specifically for them, focusing in particular on images of flowers. Warhol agreed, and created a beautiful series of images inspired by the chrysanthemum (the traditional symbol representing the Japanese emperor and Imperial House). The exhibition was a success and Warhol's exquisite prints for the "Kiku" (the Japanese word for chrysanthemum) exhibition have since become highly regarded by both critics and collectors. One of 1500 copies printed. Tokyo: Gendai Hanga Center, 1984. Octavo, original silver-lettered silver cloth. Without rare original slipcase. With original silkscreen print bound-in and numerous color reproductions throughout. Text in Japanese. Silkscreen extraordinarily bright: A FINE COPY.
