        Wood-block with medallion-shaped design of a Red Indian smoking a pipe against a background of the sea and 2 sailing ships with the legend De Jonge Amerikaan

      The Netherlands. Original woodblock with the trademark of an early nineteenth-century Dutch tobacco manufacturing firm used for stamping bale labels or wrappers for snuff tobacco (“Rappee”) consignments. The design shows a Red Indian clad in a loin cloth and feathers smoking a pipe against a backdrop of the sea with two sailing ships. The legend reads “De Jonge Amerikaan,” or “The Young American.” The central medallion is topped with a crown, tobacco leaves, spindles, and a trifork and winged staff, the attributes of Neptune and Hermes, gods of maritime travel. At the bottom the medallion is supported by further spindles and tobacco leaves, a trunk and a sack bearing the number 19. “Rappee” was a coarser cut of snuff which was grated before use; snuff boxes often contained a grater for this purpose. *On tobacco trade labels see Brongers, Georg A., Nicotiana Tabacum: the history of tobacco-smoking in the Netherlands, Groningen, Niemeijer, 1964, pp. 123-135..

Contains three small broadsides by Bukowski: "The Old Man on The Corner," "His Wife the Painter," and "Waste Basket," as well as the leaflet, "The Paper on the Floor." Other contributors include Henry Miller. In a letter from editor E.V. Griffith about this work that was sold with another copy, he stated: "The correct number of items in the COFFIN portfolio is 41, but it is listed in some dealers’ catalogs as containing less. I suspect that the disparity is because two much-sought- after items---Fielding Dawson’s ‘The Canoe’ and Larry Eigner’s ‘God/ but the silence grows’-- are sometimes filched from the portfolio by dealers and sold seperately."

        SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH Inscribed to Barry Goldwater

      [Washington, DC], [@1964-1966]. Photograph. Fine and exceptional. Official oversized (14" x 11") White House photograph of Lyndon Johnson and Barry Goldwater walking down a hall with Johnson's hand on Goldwater's back and looking behind him at an open door where a few men are gathered. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the President on the blank margin below the image: "To Barry Goldwater/from his favorite target - Lyndon B. Johnson." Goldwater, a five-term senator from Arizona, lost the race for president to Johnson in 1964. Known as "Mr. Conservative," he is the politician most often credited for sparking the resurgence of the American conservative political movement in the 1960s and also had a substantial impact on the libertarian movement. He returned to the U.S. Senate in 1969 and served until 1987, succeeded by John McCain. In 1974, as an elder statesman of the party, Goldwater forced the resignation of Richard Nixon when the evidence of cover-up became overwhelming and impeachment was imminent. By the 1980s, the increasing influence of the Christian right on the Republican Party so conflicted with Goldwater's libertarian views that he became a vocal opponent of the religious right on issues such as abortion, gay rights, and the role of religion in public life. After painting his opponent as a right-wing legislator who wanted to abolish the social welfare programs created in the 1930s (such as Social Security), Johnson easily won the Presidency over Goldwater in 1964, carrying 44 of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Goldwater, who had opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 based on his view that the act was an intrusion of the federal government into the affairs of states, won his home state of Arizona and five states of the Deep South, the first Republican to win the electoral votes of those states since Reconstruction. Johnson won 61.1% of the national popular vote, which remains the highest popular-vote percentage won by a U.S. presidential candidate since 1820. In 1965 Johnson instituted three new social welfare programs: Medicare, Medicaid, and the War on Poverty.

        Dinny Gordon Junior [with] Original Dust Jacket Art

      Macrae Smith Philadelphia: Macrae Smith. (1964). Original gouache and pencil cover art for Dinny Gordon Junior by illustrator Evelyn Copeman depicting the winning teen ingenue smiling up at an all-American boy. The image measures approximately 7" x 8.5" (on 13" x 20" artist board). It is accompanied by a clear overlay with the title and author's name affixed, a sheet of tissue paper with various notes for the printer, and additional blank sheet with a warning about handling the original art; once attached to the board by tape but now loose. The art is fine and bright; the other items showing some toning from the tape, along with a few spots and a couple of tears. It is accompanied by a fine third printing of the book in an else fine price-clipped dustwrapper.In the article Dinny Gordon: Proto-Feminist, that appeared in the March 2006 issue of the Journal of American Culture, writer Joyce Litton posits that Anne Emery's most beloved character, Dinny Gordon, who had aspirations of a nontraditional career and delayed marriage, was a transitional character between the portrayal of the 1950s female in family life and the more enlightened feminist of the mid-to-late 1960s. While it's a little hard to tell from the jacket art, this volume has Dinny confronting not only the typical teen problems such as liking two different boys and losing her job as a result of a shoplifting incident, but also confronting the prejudice of her friends when a Jewish family moves into her neighborhood. Take that, Gidget. .

        Molecular Microwave Oscillator and New Hyperfine Structure in the Microwave Spectrum of NH3. WITH: Infrared and Optical Masers

      Lancaster PA and New York: American Institute of Physics. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. FIRST EDITIONS of two landmark papers by Charles Townes on the development of the laser. Townes shared the 1964 Nobel Prize in Physics "for fundamental work in the field of quantum electronics, which has led to the construction of oscillators and amplifiers based on the maser-laser principle" Einstein suggested "that under the proper circumstances atoms could release excess energy as light-either spontaneously or when stimulated by light... In 1951 Charles H. Townes, then at Columbia University in New York City, thought of a way to generate stimulated emission at microwave frequencies. At the end of 1953, he demonstrated a working device that focused 'excited' ammonia molecules in a resonant microwave cavity, where they emitted a pure microwave frequency. Townes named the device a maser, for 'microwave amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation'... An intense burst of maser research followed in the mid-1950s, but masers found only a limited range of applications as low-noise microwave amplifiers and atomic clocks. In 1957 Townes proposed to his brother-in-law and former postdoctoral student at Columbia University, Arthur L. Schawlow (then at Bell Laboratories), that they try to extend maser action to the much shorter wavelengths of infrared or visible light... Townes and Schawlow published their ideas for an 'optical maser' [later called a laser] in a seminal paper in the December 15, 1958, issue of Physical Review" (Britannica). The 1958 paper provided the blueprint for the laser, which was eventually used by Theodore Maiman to construct the first successful laser in 1960. TOWNES, C.H.; GORDON, J.P; ZEIGER, H.J.
