      Taylor, Derek. Edited with a Foreword by George Harrison. Backword by Harry Nilsson. FIFTY YEARS ADRIFT BY DEREK TAYLOR - LIMITED SIGNED SLIPCASED EDITION. Signed by the Author and George Harrison. Guildford, UK, Masteron, NEW ZEALAND & Sydney, AUS: Genesis Publications Limited, Hedley New Zealand & Headley Australia, 1984. First Edition 1/2000. Stout Small 4to. Leather over Boards, Slipcased. Music Autobiography. Very Good/No Jacket - As Issued. 546pp, profusely illustrated in b&w and color, full edge gilt. "Fifty Years Adrift" is Derek Taylor's colourful autobiography packed with glorious pieces of memorabilia from his early days as a journalist to his term as Beatles publicist and great friend and beyond. Written by Taylor and edited and annotated by George Harrison, it is a lasting testament to the genius, wit and insight of two great men". One of Genesis Publications' earliest music titles, it is bound in 3/4 brown half-calf leather with a gilt-titled, five-banded spine over brown cloth boards with the title in gilt letters on red background. An internally most handsome example of the 1984 first edition of this endlessly fascinating memoir from this sixties icon that was present at the birth of Apple Corps and The Monterey International Pop Festival limited to two thousand copies NUMBERED (94/2000) AND SIGNED "Derek Taylor" in blue ink on the front colophon and "George Harrison" in brown ink on the facing foreword housed in the publisher's brown paper over board slipcase with pastedown, as issued. The gilt edges of the textblock are bright with a few trivial scratches that can be viewed in raking light. Its leather spine has sunned, dried, and mottled somewhat with some loss to a bit of the gilt-stamping of Derek Taylor's name. The slipcase shows some minor surface wear with abrasions, nicks, and a small dent along one of the seams. Still in all, this is a most presentable copy that has been priced accordingly.

        Churchill Lecture: An Address by Gerald R. Ford at the English-Speaking Union, London, England, November 30, 1983, the signed limited first edition, copy #62 of 100, accompanied by a signed "Printer's copy"

      Northridge, California: Lord John Press, 1984. Signed, numbered, and finely bound first edition. Hardcover. This is a set of two copies of President Gerald R. Ford's November 30, 1983 address to the English-Speaking Union in London. The first is a pristine, as-new copy of the strikingly beautiful signed and numbered limited first edition, copy #62 of 100 issued thus, signed by President Ford on the half title, hand-numbered on the limitation page, bound with a vellum spine, mahogany patterned boards with a front cover gilt presidential eagle device, and issued in a gilt-stamped linen clamshell case. The second copy is a very good plus unnumbered “Printer's copy” of the 250 copies bound with linen spine over mahogany patterned boards with President Ford's facsimile initials and last name on the front cover. This Printer's copy is internally immaculate, the binding square and tight with trivial scuffing and light wear to extremities. The English-Speaking Union (ESU) is an international educational charity founded in 1918. Winston Churchill was Chairman of the ESU from 1921 to 1925 and The Churchill Lecture is the most prestigious event in the annual ESU programme. The Churchill medal of honour is awarded every year at the annual Churchill Lecture, where the awardee delivers the address. On November 30, 1983 President Gerald R. Ford delivered the annual address on "the problems, perils, challenges and opportunities confronting the English-speaking peoples of today." Ford's substantial lecture is reflective, intelligent, witty, and repeatedly references Churchill. To convey to a new generation the rectitude and prudence of vigorous and, when necessary, armed international engagement, Ford discloses his own pre-WWII isolationist perspective. Ford recalls listening to Churchill's famous "...we shall never surrender" Dunkirk evacuation speech in June 1940 while driving his "old Model A home to Michigan from Yale Law School" as "an eminently draftable young American" and feeling that "Churchill was still talking the language of World War I." By 1942, Ford would enlist in the U.S. Navy, serving with distinction in the Pacific theatre, earning an Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal with one silver star and four bronze stars, a Philippine Liberation Ribbon with two bronze stars, an American Campaign Medal, and a World War II Victory Medal. Ford also recalls being a second term Congressman present during Churchill's third and final address to the United States Congress on January 17, 1952. History has been kinder to Churchill than to Ford. Churchill was called upon to lead his nation in the face of tyranny and oppression. To Ford fell the comparatively thankless and less ennobling task of protecting his nation from its own political and economic excesses. Gerald R. "Gerry" Ford Jr. (1913-2006) was the 38th President of the United States. A gifted athlete, Ford turned down professional football career opportunities in favor of Yale University and a law degree. Following his distinguished service in the Second World War Ford swiftly found his footing in civilian life; he was both married and elected to Congress by the end of 1948. He would be re-elected to his Grand Rapids, Michigan seat 12 times. His ascendance to the Presidency took a tumultuous and dizzying trajectory unique in the annals of American politics. Ford was House Minority Leader in October 1973 when the resignation of scandal-plagued Vice President Spiro Agnew led to Ford's appointment to take his place. Less than a year later, on August 9, 1974, Ford became President when Nixon himself resigned in disgrace. Ford's pardon of both Nixon and Vietnam draft dodgers, economic malaise, an energy crisis, the ignominious end of the Vietnam War, and the internal and external challenges of the Republican Party all contributed to Ford's defeat by Carter in 1976. Though the pardon cost Ford dearly, the judgment of history appears to be slowly taking a more sympathetic view of the necessity, which less and less weighs against Ford's lifelong reputation for integrity.

        Homage: Twelve Prints by Fritz Eichenberg [SIGNED]; Dedicated to: Lao-Tsu, Michelangelo, Erasmus, Rembrandt, Goya, Beethoven, Daumier, Lincoln, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Gandhi, Dorothy Day

      [Place of publication not identified]: [Publisher not identified], 1984. Limited Edition. Folio in a case. Fine. Eichenberg, Fritz. No. 60 of 350, signed by the artist, folio - over 12" to 15" tall, 12 prints in separate folders. Fritz Eichenberg (1901-1990), born in Germany and raised between the wars, was working as an illustrator for Germany's biggest publishing empire when Hitler came to power in 1933, and quickly decided to immigrate from Germany with his family, settling in New York after a brief stay in Mexico. His spiritual journeys took him from being raised in a non-religious Jewish household to the practice of Zen Buddhist meditation, then joining the Religious Society of Friends in 1940. Though he remained a Quaker until his death, Mr. Eichenberg was also associated with Catholic charity work through his friendship with Dorothy Day, whom met through publishing. His work reflected his inner compassion and social conscience, often depicting scenes with elements of spiritual and emotional conflict, fantasy, or social satire. This work, "Homage", is a series of twelve prints of people who we can only assume he held in high esteem, including spiritual leaders such as Lao-Tsu (the founder of philosophical Taoism) and his friend Dorothy Day, political leaders who acted as the conscience of their nations such as Lincoln and Gandhi, and great philosophers, authors and artists. The images are haunting: the one of Lincoln depicts a scene of an African-American man and woman being hunted by two men with rifles and dogs; the print of Gandhi has him praying in the foreground, with a crowd of his countrymen huddling behind him, above all looms the British Empire. An inspirational series, worthy of deliberation - "Homage" was aptly named. ***DESCRIPTION: Twelve folio prints, unbound, each in its own separate wallet; each print is numbered and signed in pencil. The images measure roughly 10.25" tall by 8" wide on sheets that are 13" tall by 10" wide. The sheet that serves as a title page simply states the title and the personages included, no publisher is identified, several of the prints are copyrighted 1984, others are undated. Contained in a supplied case covered in dark grey cloth, paper labels with gilt lettering on front and spine. ***CONDITION: Fine throughout, each print individually fine, as is each wallet; the case is new. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Ficciones [with Newsletter and Holiday Greeting from the LEC]

      [New York]: The Limited Editions Club / Printed at The Anthoensen Press, 1984. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. LeWitt, Sol. No. 165 of 1500, 8vo - over 7.75" - 9.75" tall, 341 p., signed by illustrator. Argentine author Jorge Luis Borges exerted a strong influence on the direction of literary fiction through his genre-bending metafictions, essays, and poetry. Borges was a founder, and principal practitioner, of postmodernist literature, a movement in which literature distances itself from life situations in favor of reflection on the creative process and critical self-examination. Anthony Kerrigan, who wrote the introduction to this version, wrote, "The work of Jorge Luis Borges is a species of international literary metaphor. He knowledgeably makes a transfer of inherited meanings from Spanish and English, French and German, and sums up a series of analogies, of confrontations, of appositions in other nations' literatures. His Argentinians act out Parisian dramas, his Central European Jews are wise in the ways of the Amazon, his Babylonians are fluent in the paradigms of Babel." (N. B. info from The Poetry Foundation and the Introduction by Kerrigan). ***ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: Sol LeWitt earned a place in the history of art for his leading role in the Conceptual movement. His belief in the artist as a generator of ideas was instrumental in the transition from the modern to the postmodern era. Conceptual art, expounded by LeWitt as an intellectual, pragmatic act, added a new dimension to the artist's role that was distinctly separate from the romantic nature of Abstract Expressionism. LeWitt's work ranged from sculpture, painting, and drawing to almost exclusively conceptual pieces that existed only as ideas or elements of the artistic process itself (Info from The Art Story web site). ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in full black cowhide; blindstamped lettering on the spine and a large rectangle on the cover; set in linotype Cloister Bold on Mohawk wove paper; illustrated by Sol LeWitt with silk-screens on Somerset Satin paper; pagination: (i) - xxxii, (1) - 306, blanks (307, 308), colophon (309); 8" tall; slipcase is bound in black paper.
