        THE TICKET THAT EXPLODED

      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.
