        Seven Vintage Hong Kong Police Department Photographs Used as Illustrations in Hess's "Chasing the Dragon: A Report on Drug Addiction in Hong Kong" (1965)]

      np [ca. 1959], Hong Kong - Seven glossy back and white photographs produced by the Hong Kong Police Department's Narcotics Bureau. Each photo approximately 5" x 7", mounted, captioned, and credited on a page of original manuscript (all images credited to H.K. Government Information Services, dated 1959), with instructions for placement below test. Fine condition. A copy of Hess' finished book is also provided. A group of rarely seen images documenting heroin use and manufacture during the height of Hong Kong's dominance in the 1950s world heroin trade and prepared for use in Albert Hess' 1965 book CHASING THE DRAGON (provided). Photos are titled "Woman Smoking Heroin by "Chasing the Dragon," "Heroin Divan Built of Bamboo and Matting in Dense Undergrowth on a Hillside," "Heroin Users Preparing to Smoke in a Divan," "Paraphernalia of a Hong Kong Heroin User"; "Heroin Factory in the Bathroom of a Hong Kong House"; "Another Heroin Factory in a Home"; "Roof Dwellers On Top of an Apartment Building in the Wan Chai District of Victoria." There were no fewer then 15 illustrations total in Hess' finished work, so these seven images are by no means complete. However, they do show several revisions in captioning and pagination from final published version. A compelling and frank visual documentary account of 1950s drug culture.

        SEXY GIRL / COME DANCE WITH ME [VOULEZ-VOUS DANSER AVEC MOI?] (1959)

      Vides Cinematografica / Franco Films 1959 - Vintage original 55 x 78" (140 x 200 cm.) quattro foglio poster, Italy. Brigitte Bardot, Henri Vidal, Dawn Addams, Dario Moreno, dir: Michel Boisrond; Vides Cinematografica / Franco Films. The film about a young widow who becomes a dance instructor at the dance school where her husband is circumstantially involved in a murder is more a thriller than a film about a sexy girl. But, of course, Bardot teaches dance in a somewhat provocative way, and thus the Italian "take" on the action. On linen, NEAR FINE.

        Generation harmonique, ou traité de musique theorique et pratique.Paris, Prault fils (colophon: printed by Charles Osmont), 1737. 8vo. With an engraved vignette by Claude or Simon Duflos and 12 folding engraved plates, containing 32 numbered examples of music score, by Joseph-Louis Renou bound at the end. Contemporary calf, richly gold-tooled spine.

      - Blom (ed.), Grove's dictionary VII, pp. 31-34; Christensen (ed.), The Cambridge history of western music theory, pp. 759-769; Ferris, "The evolution of Rameau's harmonic theories", in: Journal of music theory III, 2 (1959), pp. 231-256. First edition in French of the fourth treatise on music theory by Rameau. With his Traité d'harmonie Rameau had introduced the scientific method in music theory. Following Descartes methodology, Rameau searched for the basic principles governing music. In the Traité Rameau presented a complicated procedure for deriving all chords from divisions of a single monochord string. To make up for the missing chords, Rameau presented another theory for mathematical manipulation of thirds. Secondly, since he believed that the purpose of music (and art in general) was communication, Rameau theorised on the expressive functions of harmony and tonality.In his second book length treatise, the Generation harmonique, Rameau expanded his ideas. However, due to an incomplete understanding of vibration theory at his time, the book "represents an essentially erroneous theory based on the mis-observation of a scientific experiment. Rameau seemed to discover the co-vibration of strings whose lengths were multiples of that of an agitating string Ignoring these potential difficulties, Rameau plunges into a 'scientific' justification of the subdominant" (Ferris). It would not be until 1750 that Rameau would correct this error.With bookplate and small inscriptions. Binding worn with the front hinge cracked; slightly browned throughout; otherwise a good copy.

        Split from Twinkling Hell

      (Studio City, CA): Three Penny Press, 1959. First Edition. Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Very Good. [16] leaves. Poetry by W. Maurice Lacy, Walter C. Brown, and Vincent Beldon. Illustrations by Rico Rivera. In 2002, Alan Zipkin of Derringer Books turned up the manuscript of Beldon's poem, 'L.A. Night Piece' along with letters between an 18-year-old Frank Zappa and the editor of Three Penny Press. In the letters, Zappa asked that he be credited under the pseudonym Vincent Beldon. This is one of the earliest Zappa publications and it is quite uncommon. First edition (first printing). Very good in wrappers (paperback). Rear wrapper tanned; a bit of waviness to pages, but try to find a better copy (note: There was a second Three Penny Press title with the same name but without the Beldon/Zappa contribution).
