Stapled in original printed wrappers. "New Dimensions" was a periodical founded by Carl Llewellyn Weschcke of Llewellyn Publications in 1963, at the very start of the late twentieth century revival of interest in the occult. From the outset its editor was Basil Wilby (most of whose works were published under the pseudonym Gareth Knight) a British esotericist and occult author who began his esoteric training in 1953 as a member of the Fraternity (later Society) of the Inner Light, the magical order founded by Dion Fortune. Writing in the first issue of "New Dimensions" Wilby observed "Our ideal is to promote a wider understanding of what occultism stands for - and to open the way to unity of purpose among all esoteric schools." The magazine comprised original artwork, editorials, essays, poetry, reviews, short fiction, etc. on topics as diverse as ritual magick, astrology, witchcraft, miracles, talismans, folklore, clairvoyance, tarot, LSD, astral projection, Kabbalah, UFOs, angels, etc. Its contributors numbered some of the most prominent occultists of the time, namely Douglas Baker; W.E. Butler; Arnold Crowther; Patricia Crowther; Louis T. Culling; Dion Fortune; Gerald.B. Gardner; William G. Gray; Marc Edmund Jones; Gareth Knight; Israel Regardie; Dane Rudhyar; Doreen Valiente and many others. It also included historical material by Victor E.

Ted Berrigan, ed
Condition: Near Fine. New York: Lorenz Gude, 1963. Folio, mimeographed and stapled into wraps silkscreened from a polaroid by Andy Warhol. With a written out a corrected line to Denby's poem The Silence at Night in Ted Berrigan's distinctive hand, as usual. The fourth issue of the central periodical of the second generation of New York School poets, infamous for the wraps, the front and back of which are silkscreened from a polaroid portrait of Edwin Denby and Gerard Malanga by Warhol. The cover image shows Denby seated, with Malanga standing behind him; the rear wrap reproduces a subsequent photograph of Malanga kissing Denby. The circumstances of the creation of this issue are examined in minute detail in Wolf, who makes a case that this is the first known Warhol silkscreen from a polaroid. Warhol was deeply fascinated by the downtown poetry scenes, and went to great lengths to insinuate himself among the poets. The serial nature of much of his later artwork was heavily influenced by the little poetry magazines coming out of New York City at that time, and this two part image, bracketing the mimeographed pages of this fourth issue of C, is the central artifact of that relationship. Light foxing to the wraps and the text, and some light chipping along the spine, else near fine, and better than usually found. [Attributes: First Edition]

Oakland, California: Oriental Book Sales, 1963. My name is George and I have been involved in Martial Arts for close to 50 years. Forty years ago I contacted Norman Borine, the proprietor of the Bruce Lee museum. He personally wrote me a letter in 1978 directing me where to buy this rare book. According to Linda Lee (Bruce Lee's wife) only 500 copies of this first edition were printed and I have one of them. [Attributes: First Edition]

Background: Eduard Pernkopf (November 24, 1888 - April 17, 1955) was an Austrian professor of anatomy who later served as rector of the University of Vienna, his alma mater. He is best known for his seven-volume anatomical atlas, Topographische Anatomie des Menschen (translated as Atlas of Topographical and Applied Human Anatomy; often colloquially known as the Pernkopf atlas or just Pernkopf), prepared by Pernkopf and four artists over a 20-year period. While it is considered a scientific and artistic masterpiece, with many of its color plates reprinted in other publications and textbooks, it has been in recent years dogged by questions about whether Pernkopf and the artists working for him, all of them ardent Nazis, used concentration camp inmates or condemned political prisoners as their subjects.

Smith, W. Eugene
[Tokyo]: Hitachi, [1963]. Smith, W. Eugene. First edition. 4to., 79 pp., hundreds of b&w photographs printed in photogravure. Blue Japanese paper over boards, titled in gilt and issued without a dust jacket. Housed in a matching blue paper over boards, four-point portfolio, titled in gilt on the upper cover and fastened in the Japanese style with ivory clasps. The book is fine, as new. The portfolio shows slight toning at the spine and a less than one inch long crimp at the base of the rear board at the joint of the spine, slightly revealing a sliver of the base board; otherwise fine. A scarce book, and more so with the seldom seen portfolio case. Smith traveled extensively around the islands of Japan, making several trips over a period of years. He was struck by the pervasive presence of the Hitachi Corporation in the lives of the people - it was one of the leading world industrial giants. This is not an essay about Hitachi, although there are views of the factories; rather, it is an examination of the peoples of Japan and the intersection of the old customs and the new industrial strength of the country.

[Brodsky, Joseph]
Leningrad, 1963. Ten leaves, measuring 29 × 20.5 cm, of original typescript to rectos. Two photographs affixed to first leaf. One author name supplied in ink. Lacking staple to upper left; old vertical crease; a few leaves stained; see detailed description below. [Unique Brodsky Juvenilia, Published in a Single Issue]. Russian samizdat journal, published in a single copy by a group of friends including the famous poet Joseph Brodsky. It contains the first and only appearance of Brodsky's "Ode" to the cat which gives the publication its name ("O, sineglazyi, slavnyi Pasik"). Other authors include the editor, Liudmila Shtern, Nadezhda Kramovaia, Dmitrii Bobyshev, Evgenii Rein, Anatolii Naiman, and Marina Zhezhelenko. The texts are all poems, with the exception of the final contribution, an essay entitled "Pasik and foreign cinema" ("Pasik i zarubezhnoe kino"). The work was evidently composed, or typed up, on New Year's Eve. It lends poignant expression to these young writers' frustration at being unable to publish in official channels: the choice of the politically benign topic of a house cat serves to highlight the absurdity of the system. The journal's contents were only reproduced in the editor, Liudmila Stern's memoirs about Brodsky, first published in 2004. There she notes: "I hope that the reader can feel in these poems the power of creativity that drove us and the feeling of discontent that haunted us ... Our problem ... was the System telling everybody what was right, what was wrong, what was good, what was bad...." It was Stern's own cat Pasik (it had been t … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Edgar Webb, Ed
1963. Condition: Near Fine. INSCRIBED BY CHARLES BUKOWSKI on the front pink tissue-guard (to fellow writer Dan Georgakas). A very sharp copy to boot of the 3rd issue (of only 4 all told) of this highly-influential small press poetry magazine. Published by the formidable Loujon Press of New Orleans (the imprint of John and Gypsy Lou Webb), Outsider #3 is hand-printed and features a long "section dedicated to the poet Charles Bukowski, selected by the editors as deservedly the most inevitable recipient of The Outsider's first annual 'outsider-of-the-year' award (1962)". Beyond this tribute, the Webbs have also given Bukowski this issue's cover, with a wonderful, gritty black-and-white photo of the poet just below a cryptic painting of Gypsy Lou Webb (by David Pallock). Apart from Bukowski, this issue also includes work by Kenneth Patchen, Henry Miller, William Burroughs, Gary Snyder, Robert Creeley, Harold Norse, et al. Solid and Near Fine in its pictorial wrappers, with just a bit of tanning at the preliminaries. Bukowski of course would go on to do 2 highly-regarded signed/limiteds for John and Gypsy Lou Webb in the the early to mid 60s ("It Catches My Heart in Its Hands" and "Crucifix in a Deathhand") but his signature, certainly not scarce in itself, is surprisingly uncommon in this incarnation.
