        Horseshit. The Offensive Review. (vols. 1-4, complete)

      Hermosa Beach: 1965-1970. Large 4to, bound by Arthur Johnson in full morocco, in an ÒAmerican FlagÓ design which incorporates an erotic image within wavy red and ecru stripes topped by white stars on a blue background. Binding signed AJ 1973 and signed in pencil by the owner (who probably commissioned it) dated 1973. Published by brothers Bob and Tom Dunker, and profusely illustrated by many artists of the period, this counter-culture magazine only ran to four issues and, according to Plaza Books, was responsible (along with Zap, Snatch, and the SCUM Manifesto) for the arrest of Berkeley bookseller Moe Moskowitz on charges of selling pornography. Master binder Arthur Johnson, whose sense of humor and taste for attractive women was legendary, obviously had great fun creating this superb binding for such questionable material. See ÒModern British BookbindingÓ p. 17; ÒBritish Bookbinding TodayÓ p. 29.

A Dialogue with Solitude is an assemblage of photographs into poetic sequence, entailing a mere hundred pages.

      B. Klein, Paris 28.1.1965. - En feuilles 42 x 31, couverture imprimée rempliée, étui-boîte pleine toile rouille doublée de feutrine avec titre et fac-similés de signature des auteurs, portefeuille de protection similaire à l'étui destiné aux lithographies rehaussées. Exemplaire composite tout à fait déroutant, avec :- une suite des 14 lithographies (3 à double page) sur Japon, la 15ème en couverture de portefeuille sur Arches.- 4 lithographies originales signées et rehaussées de couleurs par l'artiste.En résumé, notre ouvrage se rapproche le plus du tirage des Auvergne à ceci près que la suite de ces derniers est tirée sur Arches. Par ailleurs, aucune des suites n'est mentionnée sur Japon dans les diverses tranches de tirages et il n'est nulle part fait mention de signature pour les 4 lithos rehaussées supplémentaires, exclusivement réservées aux 50 premiers exemplaires.Ce bestiaire, en partie imaginaire, rappelle "Géographie animale" paru chez Gonin en 1948, Autant les textes que l'imagerie nous parait néanmoins d'un niveau très supérieur.Quant au format, il est lui aussi bien plus ample que le nom de l'éditeur ne le laisse supposer. Édition en partie originale. Exemplaire (peut-être) unique et mixte sur Arches signé par les auteurs, comme les 200 basiques (50 avec suite), outre 1 Japon (réellement ?) unique avec une craquée de trucs, une pétée de bidules et quelques machins en sus, 13 Japon entés des bidules et machins suivis des 36 Auvergne avec les seuls machins.

        S & H Green Stamps. [Invitation to Warhol's First Museum Show at the Philadelphia ICA]

      Philadelphia: Institute of Contemporary Art, 1965. Folded as designed; a fine copy.. First Edition. The folded poster invitation to Andy Warhol's first museum show at the Philadelphia Institute of Contemporary Art, October 8 - November 21, 1965. Offset printed in a reported edition of 6000 copies, a ridiculous number given the gallery could hold only 300 people. Yet Sam Green, who organized the show and had recently been appointed director of the ICA, was keenly aware of Warhol's growing celebrity and was himself cashing in on an act of self-promotion. When it was clear the opening crowd would be closer to the number of invitations printed rather than the capacity of the gallery, Green pulled all the pieces of the wall and turned Warhol and his entourage into an impromptu exercise in performance art.

        New Dimensions (Complete Set Issues 1-16)

      St. Paul; Toddington: Llewellyn; Helios Book Service, 1965. Good +. Rare Complete Set of New Dimensions, 1960';s Occult Journal, Issues 1-16.& & Wilby, Basil (editor).& & Issues 1-6 -- St. Paul, MN: Llewellyn, 1963-64& & Issues 7-16 -- Toddington, Nr. Cheltenham, Glos., England: Helios Book Service Ltd., 1964-65.& & Background:& & The mid-20th century saw a huge growth in interest in all things esoteric and occult. When Carl Llewellyn Weschcke took over Llewellyn Publications in 1961, new age publishing was in its infancy. Llewellyn published the first 6 issues of New Dimensions bimonthly in 1963-64, and it was one of the diverse approaches they were taking to popularizing new age and occult ideas. Today, Llewellyn (now Llewellyn Worldwide) is a global publishing powerhouse, with over $16 million in annual sales. In researching the history of New Dimensions, I contacted Carl Llewellyn Weschcke to ask him about the story behind it, and he generously provided this response:& & "New Dimensions was my first attempt at magazine publishing, and it was overly ambitious at the time. If we could have started online as possible today, it could have grown. It was a great piece of work. You probably realize that Gareth Knight is the same person as Basil Wilby, editor of New Dimensions. I first encountered Basil as a voluntary, unpaid, librarian for the Society of Inner Light. When we realized we couldn';t make a go of the magazine in its quality incarnation, we transferred all rights to Basil and he continued in the ‘mimeograph'; style as you see. At the same time, he was able to start his own book endeavor, Helios, but eventually gave in, got married, and became an editor for one of the mainstream, non-occult British publishers."& & New Dimensions stated mission was as such: "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. - Basil Wilby - Editor" (from issue one contents page). It included writings from a who's who of popular 20th Century psychics, occultists, and new age thinkers. Contributions included original essays, editorials, artwork, short fiction, poetry, book reviews, and more. Over the span of its 16 issues, writings from numerous prominent mid-20th century occultists graced its pages.& & New Dimensions editor Basil Wilby was the pseudonym for Gareth Knight, a British esotericist and occult author who began his esoteric training in 1953 as a member of the Fraternity of the Inner Light, founded by Dion Fortune, and in the course of a career spanning over fifty years, Knight has written extensively on esoteric topics, mostly centered around the Qabalah. As Weschcke mentioned above, New Dimensions grew out of his encounter with Knight as a volunteer with Dion Fortune';s Fraternity of Inner Light.& & After Llewellyn';s first year with the digest sized periodical, the decision was made to discontinue publishing it. Llewellyn';s final issue was number 6 in March 1964. Knight then took full control of New Dimensions, regrouped, and started his own publishing company back in England, Helios Book Service. Knight re-released New Dimensions number 7 as "A Helios Production." Helios continued issues 7-12 in virtually the same format (albeit slightly smaller) as Llewellyn had done with 1-6. It was at issue 12 when they made the change to the lower cost mimeograph format, looking much like you would expect a modern photocopied and stapled "zine" to appear. & & Contributors& & Over the 16 issues, the following contributors appeared in New Dimension';s pages (alphabetical by last name): & & Althotas& & Victor Anderson& & Alan Bain& & Douglas Baker& & Lionel Beer& & Dorothy Bowhay& & W.E. Butler& & Margaret Bruce& & Benedicta Chichester& & Hazel & Irene Close& & Robert Cochrane& & Riley Crabbe& & Arnold Crowther& & Patricia Crowther& & Gustav Davidson& & Nancy Dell& & D.A. Devitt& & E.A. Eden& & F. Fortescue& & Dion Fortune& & Felix Fraser& & G.B. Gardner& & William G. Gray& & Dr. Elizabeth Higginson& & Stanley Holt& & Marc Edmund Jones& & Sonia Kaulback& & Gareth Knight& & Maurice Leonard& & Leon Levich& & John A. Lilley& & Margaret Lumley-Brown& & Lucile V. McCurtain& & Harold Morland& & Jacqueline Murray& & Sydney Omarr& & Nancy Mansell O';Neill& & John Pendragon & Moira Wilson Vawser& & Gideon Penman& & Eleanore Person& & Israel Regardie& & Peter Ratazzi& & Roma& & Dane Rudhyar& & Charles S. Tate& & Walter Taylor& & Doreen Valiente& & Peta Wade& & Mark Western& & Basil Wilby& & David Williams& & In its relatively short span of about 2.5 years and 16 issues, New Dimensions shows us a snapshot of the exploding interest in new age ideas and the occult during the 1960';s. Articles on tarot, psychic phenomena, LSD, numerology, astrology, UFO';s, astral projection, cosmic consciousness, angels, and Qabala are just a few of the forms this journal explored alternative and emerging ways of being in the world. Many of the authors went on to become well known in their fields, often continuing to publish and teach right up to the present. Some founded schools and esoteric societies. This beautiful and rare collection of New Dimensions will make a wonderful addition to the library of the serious collector of esoteric literature& & Also included free with this purchase is a reading copy of New Dimensions editor Gareth Knight';s 2011 memoir, I Called It Magic, in which he discusses at great length his time at editor of New Dimensions, and its role as a hub of prominent and up-and-coming occult writers and thinkers of the time. & & Condition& & Overall the set is clean and solid, with some light edgewear and occasional soiling of cover wraps. A few show some "sunning" where light has leeched some color out of the cover. Nothing out of the ordinary for a collection of periodicals that is 50 years old this year.

        New Dimensions (Complete Set Issues 1-16)

      St. Paul; Toddington: Llewellyn; Helios Book Service, 1965. Good +. Rare Complete Set of New Dimensions, 1960';s Occult Journal, Issues 1-16. Wilby, Basil (editor). Issues 1-6 -- St. Paul, MN: Llewellyn, 1963-64 Issues 7-16 -- Toddington, Nr. Cheltenham, Glos., England: Helios Book Service Ltd., 1964-65. Background: The mid-20th century saw a huge growth in interest in all things esoteric and occult. When Carl Llewellyn Weschcke took over Llewellyn Publications in 1961, new age publishing was in its infancy. Llewellyn published the first 6 issues of New Dimensions bimonthly in 1963-64, and it was one of the diverse approaches they were taking to popularizing new age and occult ideas. Today, Llewellyn (now Llewellyn Worldwide) is a global publishing powerhouse, with over $16 million in annual sales. In researching the history of New Dimensions, I contacted Carl Llewellyn Weschcke to ask him about the story behind it, and he generously provided this response: "New Dimensions was my first attempt at magazine publishing, and it was overly ambitious at the time. If we could have started online as possible today, it could have grown. It was a great piece of work. You probably realize that Gareth Knight is the same person as Basil Wilby, editor of New Dimensions. I first encountered Basil as a voluntary, unpaid, librarian for the Society of Inner Light. When we realized we couldn';t make a go of the magazine in its quality incarnation, we transferred all rights to Basil and he continued in the ‘mimeograph'; style as you see. At the same time, he was able to start his own book endeavor, Helios, but eventually gave in, got married, and became an editor for one of the mainstream, non-occult British publishers." New Dimensions stated mission was as such: "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. - Basil Wilby - Editor" (from issue one contents page). It included writings from a who's who of popular 20th Century psychics, occultists, and new age thinkers. Contributions included original essays, editorials, artwork, short fiction, poetry, book reviews, and more. Over the span of its 16 issues, writings from numerous prominent mid-20th century occultists graced its pages. New Dimensions editor Basil Wilby was the pseudonym for Gareth Knight, a British esotericist and occult author who began his esoteric training in 1953 as a member of the Fraternity of the Inner Light, founded by Dion Fortune, and in the course of a career spanning over fifty years, Knight has written extensively on esoteric topics, mostly centered around the Qabalah. As Weschcke mentioned above, New Dimensions grew out of his encounter with Knight as a volunteer with Dion Fortune';s Fraternity of Inner Light. After Llewellyn';s first year with the digest sized periodical, the decision was made to discontinue publishing it. Llewellyn';s final issue was number 6 in March 1964. Knight then took full control of New Dimensions, regrouped, and started his own publishing company back in England, Helios Book Service. Knight re-released New Dimensions number 7 as "A Helios Production." Helios continued issues 7-12 in virtually the same format (albeit slightly smaller) as Llewellyn had done with 1-6. It was at issue 12 when they made the change to the lower cost mimeograph format, looking much like you would expect a modern photocopied and stapled "zine" to appear. Contributors Over the 16 issues, the following contributors appeared in New Dimension';s pages (alphabetical by last name): Althotas Victor Anderson Alan Bain Douglas Baker Lionel Beer Dorothy Bowhay W.E. Butler Margaret Bruce Benedicta Chichester Hazel & Irene Close Robert Cochrane Riley Crabbe Arnold Crowther Patricia Crowther Gustav Davidson Nancy Dell D.A. Devitt E.A. Eden F. Fortescue Dion Fortune Felix Fraser G.B. Gardner William G. Gray Dr. Elizabeth Higginson Stanley Holt Marc Edmund Jones Sonia Kaulback Gareth Knight Maurice Leonard Leon Levich John A. Lilley Margaret Lumley-Brown Lucile V. McCurtain Harold Morland Jacqueline Murray Sydney Omarr Nancy Mansell O';Neill John Pendragon & Moira Wilson Vawser Gideon Penman Eleanore Person Israel Regardie Peter Ratazzi Roma Dane Rudhyar Charles S. Tate Walter Taylor Doreen Valiente Peta Wade Mark Western Basil Wilby David Williams In its relatively short span of about 2.5 years and 16 issues, New Dimensions shows us a snapshot of the exploding interest in new age ideas and the occult during the 1960';s. Articles on tarot, psychic phenomena, LSD, numerology, astrology, UFO';s, astral projection, cosmic consciousness, angels, and Qabala are just a few of the forms this journal explored alternative and emerging ways of being in the world. Many of the authors went on to become well known in their fields, often continuing to publish and teach right up to the present. Some founded schools and esoteric societies. This beautiful and rare collection of New Dimensions will make a wonderful addition to the library of the serious collector of esoteric literature Also included free with this purchase is a reading copy of New Dimensions editor Gareth Knight';s 2011 memoir, I Called It Magic, in which he discusses at great length his time at editor of New Dimensions, and its role as a hub of prominent and up-and-coming occult writers and thinkers of the time. Condition Overall the set is clean and solid, with some light edgewear and occasional soiling of cover wraps. A few show some "sunning" where light has leeched some color out of the cover. Nothing out of the ordinary for a collection of periodicals that is 50 years old this year.

        The Homecoming

      London: Methuen & Co, 1965. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by Harold Pinter on the title page. "With compliments" slip from Harold Pinter laid in. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with light rubbing to the extremities. Rare signed. The Homecoming is a two-act play written in 1964 by Nobel laureate Harold Pinter and first published in 1965. The original Broadway production won the 1967 Tony Award for Best Play. "The Homecoming' changed my life. Before the play, I thought words were just vessels of meaning; after it, I saw them as weapons of defense. Before, I thought theatre was about the spoken; after, I understood the eloquence of the unspoken. The position of a chair, the length of a pause, the choice of a gesture, I realized, could convey volumes." (John Lahr, The New Yorker)

In part, "Here I am sitting in my home in Corona on Easter Sunday night all by myself writing this letter to you while my wife Lucille has a good sleep. The reason we are so tired is because we have just returned from our tour behind the Iron Curtain, which we both enjoyed very, very much. We did a broadcast in Frankfort [sic], Germany not long ago." He offers emotional support to his recently widowed friend. "I always feel very sad when you mention your dear wife. The way you feel about Hilde - she felt the same way about you. True love. So as I've always said, when two people love each other like you & Hilde did you must feel contented. Never worry - never grieve! even if you should marry again. Stay happy. I preach those same words to Lucille lots of times during our life together. I have so much from the life she & I have already live [sic] together until I don't want no misery from [for] which ever one of us should leave this earth last." Armstrong also requests Kauffmann to send him a new batch of lip salve whenever he has it. SIGNED as Louis Armstrong and Satchmo. A remarkable letter from a charismatic, innovative performer whose musical skills and bright personality transformed Jazz from a rough regional dance music into a popular art form.
