J. Heinrich Ragaz et al
J. Heinrich Ragaz, Zurich 1959 - Zurich: J. Heinrich Ragaz, 1959. First Edition of the 43/45 issue, Okt/Dez, 1959. Octavo, printed wraps, 48 numbered pp. Cover UFO photographs, interior map on page 18. Text in German. From Max Miller's collection. Age toning toward the perimeter, slight centerfold (pressable), else Very Good Plus or better. Very nicely preserved. Ragaz' well-regarded UFO periodical, which ran from 1956 to 1969, from the first age of UFOlogy. A Swiss publication because, we are told, German publications were still subject to censorship in the fifties - otherwise, essentially a West German title. At 48 pp, this one is half again longer than the usual 32 pp issue. Text is in German, but some of the remarkably text-rich articles are: ".uber die neurteilung von kontaktberichten" (roughly, an overview of contact reports), "Zweifel an George Adamski" (doubts about Adamski) , "Adamski in vergleichswissenschaftlicher schau von kosmobiologie und metapsychik", and a few too many more to try to translate in this longer-than-usual issue. Interesting UFO photos in this one, too. Scarce piece of early UFO history, in superb condition, from the collection of Max Miller of Flying Saucers International and Saucers magazine.

SMITH, JACK
Dead Language Press (Piero Heliczer) 1959 - Original artist-book, with cover silkscreen/linocut by Marian Zazeela in mint condition, best we’ve seen. Contains 19 photographs by Jack Smith, original intended at a series of 16, four blocks of four, named ?"16 Immortal Photographs" for, and rejected by, Film Culture magazine. Then cut up, some more added, and put together in a few nights of hard work by Kate Heliczer, Piero, and Jack, in their adjoining flats on Ludlow Street, about 60 copies made though 200 were intended. The stills were FOR, not FROM, Smith’s notorious film to come, Flaming Creatures. The images are of mirrors; nudes intertwined, of various sexualities, plants. Mario Montez, Marian Zazeela, others men and women sprawling naked or half-clothed, draped around each other and around the room and the odalisques. Very scarce in any condition, Index Books over 15 years and 7 catalogues have had seven copies, this so far (and probably this is an end to it) the best. Contains ONE photo not in any other copy; Jack and Piero made occasional substitutions but only 3 copies of the book with such (different for each one) have come to light in the past 40 years. (One such copy had been obtained directly many years ago from Heliczer himself, after one of our hour long crazy once-every-five-years-phonecalls together with a hilarious letter cum collage of Dietrich and Hitchcock, the scrawled words of Lily Marlene in better-than-pidgin-German, all mixed in with Piero’s father’s death.)

Kneale, Nigel
[Harmondsworth, Middlesex]: Penguin Books, [1959-1960].. Octavo, three volumes, printed wrappers. First editions. Comprises THE QUATERMASS EXPERIMENT (1959), QUATERMASS II (1960) and QUATERMASS AND THE PIT (1960). Prints Kneale's revised scripts for the three BBC serials aired in 1953, 1955 and 1958/1959 respectively. Film stills are included in each volume. "Effective melodrama and social satire for its time." - Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 3-231. "Excellent scripts." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 294. "With hindsight, there is a clear pattern in Kneale's work in which ordinary people are seen as stupid and ignorant, and ready prey for the supernatural or science-fictional forces that will almost inevitably attempt to control them. There is a seigneurial, Edwardian element in this, a recoiling from the vulgar. This is a point worth belaboring, because Kneale was certainly a much better than average scriptwriter -- the Quatermass series especially is exemplary -- and his scripts were, paradoxically, very influential on SF, at least at the Gothic and irrational margin of the genre where SF meets fantasy, particularly among film and television producers, who never expect SF to make sense anyway." - SFE (online). These copies are part of the export issue: the first and second books each has a 65¢ price printed on the front cover, and the last has a tiny 65¢ price sticker pasted on the front cover near the bottom edge. A hint of tanning to white areas of the spine panels, a fine, unread set. (#156804)
