Three handwritten letters sent by the poet Yehuda Amichai, between the years 1960-1974.
The first letter, dated 1960, was sent to the poet Avraham Broides, requesting that the latter transfer his request for a grant to The Fund for Encouraging Original Literary Works, so that he could complete a novel called "HaNekama," probably an earlier version of "Lo Achshav Lo MiKan," published in 1963.
The second letter, dated December 1963, was sent to the Hebrew Writers Association in Israel, but referred to The Lamdan Prize Foundation, and contained another request for a financial grant for the writing of a novel. The letter was written shortly after the publication of "Lo Achshav Lo MiMan," but Amichai did not publish another novel until "Mi Yitneni Malon," in 1971.
The third letter, dated 1964, was sent to Dov Chomsky, the secretary-general of the Author's Association, requesting help in collecting a debt from a school in Jerusalem, where Amichai taught. Amichai mentions in the letter a document, which should have boon attached to the the letter, but the document is missing.
Size and condition vary. One letter is in fair condition, with stains, the other two are in good condition with slight tears in the margins. All three letters have filing holes.
"The photo at the display window, Yehuda Amichai (part of the novel 'Skull on the Water,' soon to be published)."
Thirteen typewritten pages, a carbon copy with many handwritten corrections and changes, eventually published as the sixth chapter of Amichai's novel Lo MeAchshav Lo MiKan (Not of this Time, Not of this Place), published in 1963 (pages 35-46).
Some of the corrections are in Amichai's handwriting, others are in Ephraim Broide's handwriting. Broide was the editor of literary periodical Molad, and received the chapter for publication. This draft is different in many details from the final version of the chapter in the novel.
At the time the chapter was written, Amichai's working title for the novel was "Skull on the Water," the name deriving from a Mishna in Pirke Avot which is quoted on the book's half title page (see Hebrew). Eventually Amichai decided to call the novel Not of this Time, Not of this Place.
Written in the first person, this poetic novel is a juxtaposition of two possible, parallel realities, unravelling simultaneously. Yoel arrived in Palestine as child, joined the Palmach and fought in the 1948 War of Independence. In one of the parallel stories he returns to his hometown in Germany to avenge the death of a girl he loved who was murdered in the holocaust, while in the parallel story, he remains in Jerusalem, to cope with his unsuccessful and search for a new love.
13 pages, carbon copy of the period. Good condition, creases, few stains, slight damage to last pages.

Review by Lea Goldberg of J.D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey, published in 1961. Twelve typewritten pages with handwritten notes and corrections, by Goldberg and Ephraim Broide, editor of Molad. Two of the pages feature full paragraphs in Goldberg's handwriting.
The review is titled BeShivhei HaGveret HaShmena (In Praise of the Fat Lady). Goldberg is referring to a story Zooey heard from their brother Seymour who used to tell him to shine his shoes before a live radio show. When Zooey pointed out that nobody sees his shoes on the radio, Seymour told him to do it for the 'Fat Lady,' an imaginary, lonely listener who deserves his best. Goldberg uses the fat lady as her starting point, sharply criticizing Salinger's prose and materials, comparing him, unfavorably to her preferred authors - Dostoyevsky, Thomas Mann, Nabokov, Herman Broch and others. The essay underlines the gap between Salinger's world, and the generation and culture it represents, and Goldberg's world.
The final version of the essay appears in a book of Goldberg's collected essays Mador UMeever - Bchinot UTeamim BaSifrut Haklalit, Sifriyat Hapoalim, 1977.

Kahanoff was also a feminist, dealing widely with the plight of women in Arab society in particular and patriarchal, conservative societies in general.

Its design was also innovative - it was printed on in color on chromo paper and its graphic design was deliberate, with a prominent use of photos and illustrations.

An amplified acoustic guitar, Ovation 1651, serial number 321044. Made in USA. By its serial number the guitar was made in 1985 or 1986.

The company was also considered a pioneer in including pre amps in its amplification systems, in as soon as 1971. Ovation guitars became very popular in the 1980s, when many well known musicians used them, among them Paul Simon at the Reunion Concert in Central Park, and John Lennon who used this same model - Ovation 1651 Legend, in a few sessions, and is photographed with such a guitar on the cover of his album Acoustic, which was released after his death.

The prize was awarded to Zohar Levy, the leader of the group, after it was chosen as best band of the year by Yedioth Ahronoth.
Kinor David was considered the most prestigious arts and culture award in Israel in the 1960's and 1970s. It was awarded starting in 1964. Categories included film, music, radio and TV, theatre and dance.
The winners were determined by a poll conducted among the paper's readers weighted with another poll conducted among professionals in each field.
Aharit Hayamim is considered one of the first and most important rock groups in Israel, and its music is still influential and successful today. The band was founded in 1971 by Zohat Levy, a drummer who played with the High Windows and HaShlosharim, and composed all the songs for Hanoch Levin's controversial play Malkat Ambatya. He was joined by veterans of army troupes (Eli Magen who was also with Levy in Kef HaTikva HaTova, and Miri Aloni, both from LAhakat HaNahal) as well as rock musicians (aby Shoshan of HaShokolada nad ythe Israeli version of " Hair", and Yitzhak Klepter of The Churchills and HaSignonot). Levy composed all of the band's songs and was considered its leader.
The band combined serious texts by established poets - such as Hanoch Levin, Amos Kenan, Dalia Ravikovitch and others - with rock music influenced by psychedelia and progressive rock.

Despite critical acclaim the group never enjoyed commercial success, and was disbanded in the very same year, also due to differences between band members.
