        Grand Canyon River Guide Scroll Map

      Bountiful, UT: Western River Guides Association. Very Good. 1962. No Binding. From Herm Hoop's History of River Guides on the Colorado River System: "Les Jones, of Heber City, Utah, was an engineer and avid river runner. Jones began running rivers at the age of eleven. He built a kayak, running most rivers solo, and taking movies from a camera mounted on a football helmet. By the early 1950's Les began taping USGS maps together and filling in the missing contours. Les began using aerial photos, USGS maps and his own drawings and notes to trace and draw detailed maps on a scroll paper strips 7-10 inches wide. The maps were not waterproof and faded in sunlight, so they had to be protected from water and sunlight. Later his maps were copied onto waterproof mylar. Jones copied a river profile on the map above the river segments, labeling rapids and features on both. The maps contained rapid ratings, drawings of major rapids, Powell and other historic river camps, historic inscriptions and other detailed information. Les' maps were some of the first maps to contain conservation messages." This issue is of Jones's river scroll maps for the Grand Canyon. Dark blue mimeographed text and map. Includes an alert about the proposed Marble Canyon dam within the Grand Canyon. 7" wide paper scroll map is of unknown length when unrolled. In original plastic packaging with attached paper instructions on how to use the map. The plastic bag is rarely seen with the map; bag is milky with light soiling. Paper instruction label is faded on one side but bright on verso. Label itself is intact with wrinkling and edge wear. Some edge wear to the scroll map but inking remains strong. Few small tears visible. Fascinating piece of river-running history! ; Map .

      Paris: The Olympia Press. 1962. First edition, first printing. First edition, first printing. Inscribed presentation copy from William Burroughs to Alexander Trocchi. Also signed by Brion Gysin. Publisher's original green card covers printed in black, in the original dustwrapper. Loosely laid in is a photographic bookmark invitation to William Burroughs' book signing event for this book at La Librairie Anglaise, Paris on 12th December 1962. A very good or better copy, the binding firm and bright, the spine with a slight lean, the contents clean throughout. Complete with the lightly rubbed and creased dustwrapper. An important association copy. Inscribed by the author in blue ink on the title page “For Alex Trocchi / a cosmonaute of / inner space in / appreciation of his / accurate maps”. Also signed by Brion Gysin in black ink underneath his printed text to the last page. Published and presumably inscribed shortly after their first encounter in 1962 on an aeroplane heading to the Edinburgh Writer's Conference. Burroughs recalls “I'd read Cain's Book , which was one of the early books about heroin addiction, and so we had a lot in common”. The two became allies of sort at the conference which turned into an extraordinary stand-off between the old guard and the young turks. Trocchi's announcement that “of what is interesting in the last twenty years or so of Scottish writing, I myself have written it all” incensed poet Hugh MacDiarmid so much that he denounced both Trocchi and Burroughs as “vermin who should never have been invited”, later describing Trocchi as “cosmopolitan scum, a writer of no literary consequence whatsoever”. Therein a long term and close friendship was born. Burroughs and Trocchi act as paradigms for the life of junk, both inside and outside of their texts. As long-term heroin addicts, Burroughs admired Trocchi's skill with the hypodermic syringe, writing “when I met [Alex] in London, he used to help me shoot up … my veins were gone in my arms. Old Alex could find a vein in a mummy”, an intimacy seldom found between two writers. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request.

        The Ticket That Exploded

      Paris: Olympia Press, 1962. First Edition. wrappers. Fine/fine. 1st edition (in English). Fine in printed wraps and fine dustjacket (impeccable). An unequivocally counter culture, and desensitizingly pushy novel, fixated on the American spiritual void, in a world without belief, where religion has been reinvented as the worship of chemicals. It's also a novel about mind control, saying that language is a virus, and if you think you are free, you're probably infected, anticipating our time of feckless media journalism, only sometimes biased against a particular policy, position, party, persuasion, or point of view, but always biased against understanding. And since this is a book about the effects of drugs on the mind, here's what I've learned: Avoid all drugs that make me more boring than I already am, or nervous enough to thread a sewing machine while it's running, or lead me to suppose I should give myself a haircut.

        Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons

      Lancaster, PA: American Institute of Physics 1962. First Edition. [2], 1130 pages. Light brown buckram binding with gilt spine lettering, bumped at head of spine. Physical Review 125 Jan-Feb 1962 (entire volume offered). Ex-library, properly de-accessioned, with minor markings. Cloth. This volume contains the article "Symmetries of Baryons and Mesons" by Murray Gell-Mann, found on pages 1067-1084. Gell-Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1969 "for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their interactions". This paper demonstrates the "introduction of SU(3) single-octet structure of the known mesons and octet-decuplet structure for the baryons. [and] predicts the Omega- Hyperon" There is one earlier introduction of these concepts, in a private institutional paper CTSL-20 which (while quite rare) was printed separately and later reprinted in "The Eightfold Way: A Review" much later (1964). As such, this is the earliest obtainable and best work related to the Gell-Mann's Nobel Prize. See Ezhela, et al, pgs 181 and 186-7. Very Good.
