    About ALBERT M. BENDER (from Wikipedia):

    ******Albert Maurice Bender (born Dublin 1866 died San Francisco 1941) was a German-Irish-American art collector who was one of the leading patrons of the arts in San Francisco in the 1920s and 1930s. HE PLAYED A KEY ROLE IN THE EARLY CAREER OF ANSEL ADAMS and was one of Diego Rivera's first American patrons. By providing financial assistance to artists, writers, and institutions, he had a significant impact on the cultural development of the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

    A lover of literature from an early age, Bender began collecting rare books and helped create the Book Club of California in 1912. Inspired by his cousin Anne Bremer, a professional artist, Bender began collecting art,

    Bender enjoyed giving things away even more than he liked acquiring them, and he became a prolific donor to Bay Area museums and libraries. Beginning in 1932 he donated 260 pieces of art to the National Museum of Ireland in memory of his mother. He gave important collections of rare books and fine printing to Mills College, Stanford University, the University of California, and the San Francisco Public Library. Stanford University has a Bender Room in its library.

    Bender helped launch the career of many artists and photographers, including Ansel Adams. He financed the publication of Adams's first portfolio (Parmelian Prints of the High Sierras, 1927) and his first book (Taos Pueblo, with author Mary Hunter Austin, 1930).******

    LEW WELCH (1926-1971) prominent Beat and cult figure, one of a handful of poets including Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder and Michael McClure, who emerged from the San Francisco Renaissance of the 1950s. Welch was a misfit even among the Beats. He wrote for the hipsters, Beats and beatniks who gathered nightly in San Francisco to listen to jazz, drink cappuccinos and sip red wine. In 1971 he wrote a suicide note that read, "I never could make anything work out right and now I'm betraying my friends." Then, with gun in hand he wandered into the forest surrounding Gary Snyder's home in the Sierra Nevadas, his body has never been found.

    DONALD ALLEN (1912-2004) Lew Welch's literary executor, Grove Press editor, publisher, and author of The New American Poetry 1945-1960, the landmark literary anthology that has come to define the canon of early Beat poetry.

    EXHIBITION POSTER featuring a RISQUE ROARING 20s PHOTOGRAPH by ALBERT ARTHUR ALLEN. The photograph shows a line of NUDE WOMEN in a stylized pose. The photograph was likely taken in the midst of the Roaring Twenties when Albert Arthur Allen was most active (and at his most scandalous).

    About ALBERT ARTHUR ALLEN (from Wikipedia):

    ******Albert Arthur Allen, b.1886 d.1962, was an American figure photographer and film director known for nude portraiture.

    Allen was born to a wealthy New England family in 1886, and was educated in Boston. At the age of twenty-one, he moved to California and spent years traveling and studying art. In 1916, he opened the Allen Art Studios in Oakland, California. The studio later became known as the Allen Institute of Fine and Applied Art, before it was destroyed by a fire in 1925. The following year, Allen rebuilt the studio and called it the Classic Motion Picture Corporation, a venture that lasted two years before declaring bankruptcy.

    A motorcycle accident in 1923 left Allen permanently disabled, but he continued to work. His nude photographs were considered scandalous by American standards during the Roaring Twenties. He was indicted for sending obscene materials through interstate mail, and spent years in litigation.

    Little is known about Allen's later life. His first commercial exhibition did not take place until 1979, seventeen years after his death. Allen died in Hayward, California, at the age of 75.******

    Published by [Lord John Press, 1980]. Presentation Copy - Presentation Copies are normally printed prior to numbered copies, making them quite hard to find. Subsequently printed in a limited edition of only 150 numbered copies.

    Broadside, printed on fine heavy stock paper, deckled top and bottom edges, 15x22 inches.

    NEAR FINE condition, a bright and beautiful copy. Would look great mounted and/or framed.

    From the Broadside: "Within a very few years of the publication of my Collected Poems (1938)... I renounced further trying the way of poetry... saying: I would write no more poems - and I wrote no more poems... (however) I wrote for (a close friend), in the 1978 Christmastime, a poem, marked as a poem for him only, giving it the title HOW A POEM CAME TO BE. I kept no copy of this privately written and given poem, and forgot the writing and the giving of it... I chanced, recently, to tell my friend of receiving a request for a poem to publish in broadside form from the Lord John Press, indicating my feeling some surprise that Mr. Yellin, the Press's director, should not have been aware that FOR FORTY YEARS there had been NO NEW POEMS of mine. But my friend reminded me that about a year ago there HAD been a new poem - the one I wrote for him; and he urged me to let him release it to me from its private status of being a poem for him only... I give here the poem, given him, to be out in the world..."

    LAURA RIDING JACKSON, 1901-1991, was an iconoclastic American Poet. She left New England at the age of 25 to live with ROBERT GRAVES and his wife, Nancy Nicholson. The triangle did not suit her, and Laura Riding tried to commit suicide in 1927. Thereafter Robert Graves divorced his wife and lived together with Laura Riding in Majorca, France, England and Switzerland, and even went with her when she returned to the United States. They bitterly broke up in 1939. In 1941 Laura Riding Jackson renounced poetry, married Schuyler B. Jackson, and lived quietly with him in Wabasso, Florida, until her death in 1991. In the 60s, 70s and 80s she wrote a number of pieces explaining her reasons for renouncing poetry, but no poetry. This is apparently THE ONLY POEM written by Laura Riding Jackson since 1941.

    MACUNAIMA (1969). A Brazilian Cinema Novo masterpiece, considered one of the most important films in Brazilian history. Directed by Joaquim Pedro de Andrade, in Portuguese with English subtitles. A box office hit in Brazil, it was released in a dubbed version for American audiences in 1972 by New Line Cinema.

    Illustrated by underground New York psychedelic comic artist Frank Mell. His incredible work is similar to legendary R. Crumb Comics, but much less known. His work is in the collection of the Oakland Museum, he illustrated psychedelic album covers, posters, and his work can be found in counter culture periodicals.

    Original MOVIE POSTER, Offset lithograph on paper, 37" x 24.5". GOOD Condition: stored rolled for decades, so the colors remain very bright, the bottom margin has some waviness and shorelining/staining, the top edge has some light creasing, there are a few light smudges here and there and a few signs of wear, but overall the poster is solid, bright and clear.

    An epic psychedelic adventure fantasy on Brazilian themes and myths, based on a Modernist novel written in 1928 by Mario de Andrade (no relation to the film's director), the metaphorical, savagely satirical film has drawn comparisons to the work of Fellini, John Waters and Lina Wertmuller. A revealing allegory of Brazil's complex racial and cultural history with subtle references to its repressive military rule. Like the musical style Tropicalia gave the world a uniquely Brazilian beat, Macunaima exhibits a strong Brazilian identity.

    When the film was first released in the United States, its most sensational elements were played up. In a comprehensive 1976 essay about it in the media review journal Jump Cut, author J.R. Molotnik wrote that the movie had been dubbed "Jungle Freaks" for its U.S. release and was advertised in the Village Voice as "95 Minutes of Brazil Nuts." "New Line Cinema, the film's U.S. distributor, was clearly seeking to attract the Voice's avowedly offbeat readers with promises of an exotic spoof," Molotnik wrote. "The movie buff likely to attend such an 'underground' film was thus readied for a far-out lighthearted film, one bearing little resemblance to the 'heavy' classics of Latin American revolutionary cinema."

    Broadside, printed on fine heavy stock paper, deckled top and bottom edges, 15x22 inches.

    NEAR FINE condition, some light creases from handling, bright and beautiful.

    From the Broadside: "Within a very few years of the publication of my Collected Poems (1938)... I renounced further trying the way of poetry... saying: I would write no more poems - and I wrote no more poems... (however) I wrote for (a close friend), in the 1978 Christmastime, a poem, marked as a poem for him only, giving it the title HOW A POEM CAME TO BE. I kept no copy of this privately written and given poem, and forgot the writing and the giving of it... I chanced, recently, to tell my friend of receiving a request for a poem to publish in broadside form from the Lord John Press, indicating my feeling some surprise that Mr. Yellin, the Press's director, should not have been aware that FOR FORTY YEARS there had been NO NEW POEMS of mine. But my friend reminded me that about a year ago there HAD been a new poem - the one I wrote for him; and he urged me to let him release it to me from its private status of being a poem for him only... I give here the poem, given him, to be out in the world..."

    LAURA RIDING JACKSON, b.1901 d.1991, was an iconoclastic American Poet. She left New England at the age of 25 to live with ROBERT GRAVES and his wife, Nancy Nicholson. The triangle did not suit her, and Laura Riding tried to commit suicide in 1927. Thereafter Robert Graves divorced his wife and lived together with Laura Riding in Majorca, France, England and Switzerland, and even went with her when she returned to the United States. They bitterly broke up in 1939. In 1941 Laura Riding Jackson renounced poetry, married Schuyler B. Jackson, and lived quietly with him in Wabasso, Florida, until her death in 1991. In the 60s, 70s and 80s she wrote a number of pieces explaining her reasons for renouncing poetry, but no poetry. This is apparently THE ONLY POEM written by Laura Riding Jackson since 1941.
