        THE JUNGLE

      Limited Editions Club, Baltimore 1965 - Tall octavo (7" x 10-7/8") bound appropriately in embossed quarter pigskin and butcher paper sides; 384 pages. The First Illustrated Edition of this modern classic with a new preface by the author. Illustrated with 12 full-color wash-and-ink drawings, 8 full-page and 4 two-page spreads, and 33 two-color line drawings by Fletcher Martin. SIGNED by both the artist and the author on the colophon page. Of a total of 1500 copies printed, this copy is not numbered (in place of the number is written in ink "Office Copy") and bears the Club's blindstamp stating it is one of 15 presentation copies. An affordable way to acquire a signed copy of this important book, now somewhat uncommon in this condition. Sinclair's powerful exposure of the Chicago meat-packing industry is still a staple on the menus of many high school reading lists. His account of the social and human abuses of the yards, where packers used "everything about the hog except the squeal," led to major reforms in the industry and, along with UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, is one of the few American novels to have a lasting impact on the way we live our lives. Indeed, when this book was published Jack London said, "What Uncle Tom's Cabin did for black slaves, The Jungle has a large chance to do for the white slaves of today." President Theodore Roosevelt was so shocked by what he read that he made sure a clean meat act, the Pure Food and Drug Bill, was signed into law, popularizing at the time the rather obscure term "muckraker." Later in life, Sinclair said of his masterpiece: "I aimed at the public's heart and by accident I hit it in the stomach." Mild rubbing to the spine. Near Fine in a Near Fine slipcase with mild sunning [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Lithographed Poster for the 1965 Patchen Paintings Exhibition at Glade Gallery

      New Orleans: Glade Gallery, 1965. 18 x 25" poster, offset lithograph in three colors. The striking large scale poster for the 1965 exhibition of paintings at Glade Gallery. The poster is illustrated with one of Patchen's bird man drawings, and was designed by Patchen himself. The exhibition was organized by Ed Blair with Jon and Lou Webb, and included paintings which had previously been shown at City Lights bookshop. According to Jeff Weddle, who discusses the exhibition briefly in his book Bohemian New Orleans: The Story of the Outsider and Loujon Press, the exhibition was partially a consolation for the fact that a proposed Patchen book from the Loujon Press had to be shelved. Some light spots and lines to margins of oxidation from prior framing, also visible at verso, but not affecting the image at recto, which remains bright. Very good.

        Alcoholics Anonymous Inscribed by Bill and Lois to one of Bill Wilson's sponsees

      Alcoholics Anonymous World Services Inc., New York 1965 - New York: Alcoholics Anonymous World Services Inc., 1965. Second edition. Seventh Printing. Inscribed by Bill and Lois Wilson on verso of front free endpaper : "Dear Chuck -/ Lois Joins me / in all affection / and in confident / faith that the / years to come / will be your finest / Ever. / Bill / Stepping Stones / Jan 15 / 66". Below that is Lois' inscription in her own hand: "With Heaps of Love / Lois." Octavo. xxx, 575 pages. Bound in full blue morocco with gilt rules on covers, and inner dentelles, light-yellow silk bookmark bound in. Spine in six compartments with gilt lettering, rules and decorations. Top edge gilt. Lovely blue leather binding in beautiful condition. The seventh printing was published in March 1965. The signature page of this book is integral to the binding (see photo), so the binding precedes the January 1966 inscription, meaning that the book must have been finely bound in 1965 and promptly presented to Bill and Lois for signature. This is the only copy I have seen that was inscribed by Wilson into an already finely bound copy. This no doubt came about because the "Chuck" in the dedication is Chuck Gibian, who was actually sponsored by Bill Wilson. They became close friends over the years. This copy comes with a twelve page typescript by Chuck together with his AA "Birds of a Feather" pin. Chuck's typescript has minor annotations and corrections in ink, old paperclup rust on the top left corner Very good. More Information: Lois Wilson (1891-1988), the wife of AA cofounder Bill Wilson, was herself the cofounder of Al-Anon, a support group for family and friends of alcoholics. Birds of a Feather International is an organization formed in response to the need of pilots and other cockpit crew members for a forum in which the subject of alcohol and drug addiction can be discussed with impunity and immunity. Chuck was an early "Bird" and served as a panel member on behalf of the National Council on Alcoholism. In November 1976, the FAA issued their exemption letter allowing sober recovering alcoholics to fly as crew members. Chuck was the first to apply and receive his exemption on January 15, 1977 (Birds of a Feather Website). The 12-page testimonial included here recounts Chuck's experience as a professional airline pilot and recovering alcoholic. His "Bird of a Feather" pin is attached to the last page of the typescript. This would be a centerpiece for any AA collection, with a beautiful binding and a fine inscription by Bill and Lois to an actual Wilson spondee Book is very near fine, tiny touch of wear to gilt only.

        Dune, the first edition, first printing, in first issue dust jacket

      Chilton Books, Philadelphia and New York 1965 - Half a century after it was published, Dune continues to be regarded among the greatest science fiction novels. This is the first edition, first printing, very good in a very good first issue dust jacket. First edition is so stated on the copyright page and first printing confirmed by copyright page content. The first issue dust jacket is confirmed by an intact "5.95" front flap price and the publisher information in four lines on the lower rear flap. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners, no color shift between the spine and covers, and bright white spine print. We note a hint of toning to extremities, slight concavity and a small wrinkle to the spine head. The contents remain bright with no spotting. A decorative bookplate affixed to the front pastedown is the sole previous ownership mark. We note small and unobtrusive spots of dried, transparent adhesive at the lower edges of the front and rear free endpapers, likely from a previous, non-archival dust jacket protector. The page edges remain bright, the top edge clean, the fore and bottom edges with a few spots of light soiling. The unclipped dust jacket shows only fractional loss to the spine and flap corners and shelf presentation is excellent, with only mild fading slightly dulling the yellow tone in the author’s name. We note a barely discernible .75 inch clear tape reinforcement at the lower front hinge of the recto and clear tape reinforcements on the verso to the hinge extremities and upper front flap fold. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. Dune is speculative fiction in the fullest sense. In Dune, Herbert created a reality at once compellingly foreign and provocatively familiar in philosophical, political, and cultural strictures tightly woven by Herbert and then cathartically disrupted. Herbert populated this reality with characters personal enough for the reader to identify and invest, yet potent enough to serve as allegory. Dune was revolutionary, even within the genre. Classic science fiction elements of galactic empire and faster than light space travel interleave with Homeric tragedy, biblical exile, suffering, and revelation, mystic states of altered consciousness, ecological sustainability as an ethos, and socio-political tensions between order and anarchy, revolution and reconciliation. Dune was long, complex, strange, and unprecedented – and predictably rejected by more than 20 publishing houses before being improbably accepted by Chilton, a Philadelphia operation known for auto repair manuals and hobby magazines. Many writers take an odd, tortuous path to literary greatness. Frank Patrick Herbert, Jr. (1920-1986) proved the rule. Herbert had worked as a writer for more than two decades before Dune, but was a "chronically broke" writer who had worked as a journalist, war photographer, and even an interlude as a Congressional speech writer. 1959 found a 40 year old Herbert on the sand dunes near Florence, Oregon, researching a story about a U.S. Department of Agriculture program to stabilize the shifting sands. "Herbert was a quintessential product of the libertarian culture of the Pacific coast, self-reliant and distrustful of centralized authority, yet with a mile-wide streak of utopian futurism and a concomitant willingness to experiment." The Oregon dunes proved fertile ground for creative epiphany. Herbert’s research into dunes became research into deserts and desert cultures, thence two short, serialized novels that he then re-worked into the single, giant epic that became Dune. An unqualified critical success, Dune won both the 1965 Nebula and 1966 Hugo awards for best novel. Commercial success was slower, but the fan cult grew during the 1970s and Dune became a lucrative franchise, with a series of sequels authored by Herbert, followed by more than a dozen additional Dune novels authored by Herbert’s son after his death.

        Lunar Surveyor Photo Archive

      1965. [NASA]. [Archive of vintage black-and-white photographs documenting Surveyors 2 and 3]. [Los Angeles: Hughes Aircraft, 1965]. Sixty-nine black-and-white photographs, most measuring 4 by 5 inches or 8 by 10 inches, in protective sleeves with card backings. $2500.Sixty-nine vintage black-and-white photographs documenting the assembly and transport of Surveyors 2 and 3, two of the spacecraft NASA used to scout lunar landing sites for the Apollo program.""Following the Ranger missions, NASA's Surveyor program was designed to find a way to safely land on the Moon. After three practice missions, five of the seven Surveyor spacecraft made it to the Moon"" (NASA). This intriguing archive of 69 black-and-white photographs documents the assembly and transportation of Surveyors 2 and 3. Taken in June and July of 1965, images include the encapsulation of Surveyor 2; Surveyor 2 after separation spring installation; Surveyor 3 placed in an airlock for post-assembly transport; testing Surveyor 3's transport equipment on the way to the launch complex; loading the craft aboard an Air Force transport plane, its clamshell doors open; the craft wrapped in plastic; the transport vehicle's chain assembly; numerous views of the Surveyor Oxidizer purge cart; a Polaroid photo of the Surveyor Oxizider tank; and more. Surveyor 2 never reached the Moon. When one of the craft's three thrusters failed to ignite, it spun out of control and crashed southeast of Copernicus crater on September 23, 1966. Surveyor 3, however, landed on April 20, 1967 and ""made further inroads into preparations for human missionsÂ… Using a surface sampler to study the lunar soil, [it] conducted experiments to see how the lunar surface would fare against the weight of an Apollo lunar moduleÂ… [The lander] also gathered information on the lunar soil's radar reflectivity and thermal properties"" (Jet Propulsion Laboratory). The Apollo 12 crew retrieved pieces of Surveyor 3 so that scientists could study how the lander's exposure to the lunar environment affected it. Of the 69 photographs, 53 measure 4 by 5 inches, 16 measure 8 by 10 inches and one, the Polaroid, measures 4-1/4 by 7 inches. Verso of each photograph stamped with date and explanatory text. Some photographs with marginal punch holes, indicating they were or were meant to be grouped in a catalogue. A fascinating collection of photographs in excellent condition.

        The Madrid Suite (Complete in Original Folio)

      Hollander Workshop, New York 1965 - Robert Motherwell (1915-1991) writes in the introduction to the set that he was inspired to do this series by his honeymoon in Madrid in 1958 with his then-wife, the artist Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011). The texture of the plaster walls in their hotel presented an interesting surface on which to draw, making the lines appear like dots and reminiscent of Seurat. In creating this series, inspired by his time in Madrid, Motherwell was able to reproduce the feel of those drawings by using Hollander's plaster walls in the same way, drawing on lithographic transfer paper. An extremely rare edition of Motherwell's work, the lithographs were often broken up and sold individually. An important piece by the man who came up with the title "The New York School" which referred not only to him, but fellow abstract expressionist painters Philip Guston, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, and Mark Rothko. [11] pp. Elephant Folio. Housed in custom brown linen folio with title pasted to front panel with Motherwell's name and initials also blind embossed to center of label. Interleaved with tissue; all lithographs, tissues, and folio case in pristine condition. Suite consists of ten (10) black & white lithographs printed on white Arches paper measuring 22" x 30". This is edition #31 of 100. Each lithograph is signed and numbered by Motherwell and includes the blind embossed logo of Irwin Hollander (the master-printer) in the lower right corner.

        Fine group of 4 Typed Letters Signed to A.R.W. Farmer (of Poole, Dorset), (Vernon, 1906-1967, Welsh Poet)

      1965 - saying that "no formula for writing good poetry exists or ever will exist", some cherish old masters and later find their style "almost surprisingly to themselves", others "sweep away conventional verse . at the outset . Poetic criticism is rather a hindrance" as a poet's development is not a straight line but "nearly always a spiral", he talks of Yeats' method of sustaining ideas, but shares Yeats' belief that "the finest and most permanent things in poetry are gifts . You should test everything, every half-syllable, for energy and accuracy" (2nd October 1964), "I will sign the copy of Dylan Thomas' letters to me and return it with this", he talks about what the critics call success, but "a poet does not speak only to his own generation . I never review a living poet", and, as he and his family will be in Bournemouth for half term, suggesting "coffee in the Christchurch Road, or something" (13th October 1964), "Your question about 'fossil' is difficult to answer, but I think it was . the context that brought Dylan Thomas to mind . all English words are common property . the notion of plagiarism or echo only arises in the usage", citing Eliot's success in "transposition", the language of the old lady quoted by Farmer "was succinct, and gets full marks for what it was" (9th November 1964), "I really dislike passing judgment, but I think the longer poem shows more potential than the other", to Watkins "Literature, as such, is a bore ; but the poetry of belief has infinite excitement", he disagrees "that things are transient . When you have kicked time in the pants . there are so many gifts, so much material for gratitude ." (10th July 1965), 5 sides 8vo., autograph additions at the foot of the first two letters, The Garth, Pennard Cliffs, near Swansea, 2nd October 1964 - 10th July To his friend Dylan Thomas, Watkins was 'the most profound & greatly accomplished Welshman writing poems in English'. It is interesting that he mentions having "kicked time in the pants". In the 1920's he suffered a mental breakdown. He had returned from work and become increasingly manic. He started shouting that he had conquered time and could now control both his own destiny and that of others. At that moment he heard a crash outside and looked out to see a motor-cyclist dead on the road and his bloodstained pillion passenger staggering up the path towards him. Vernon was convinced that he had willed this to happen and promptly collapsed.

        Dune, the first edition, first printing, in first issue dust jacket

      Philadelphia and New York: Chilton Books, 1965. First edition. Hardcover. Half a century after it was published, Dune continues to be regarded among the greatest science fiction novels. This is the first edition, first printing, very good in a very good first issue dust jacket. First edition is so stated on the copyright page and first printing confirmed by copyright page content. The first issue dust jacket is confirmed by an intact “5.95” front flap price and the publisher information in four lines on the lower rear flap. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners, no color shift between the spine and covers, and bright white spine print. We note a hint of toning to extremities, slight concavity and a small wrinkle to the spine head. The contents remain bright with no spotting. A decorative bookplate affixed to the front pastedown is the sole previous ownership mark. We note small and unobtrusive spots of dried, transparent adhesive at the lower edges of the front and rear free endpapers, likely from a previous, non-archival dust jacket protector. The page edges remain bright, the top edge clean, the fore and bottom edges with a few spots of light soiling. The unclipped dust jacket shows only fractional loss to the spine and flap corners and shelf presentation is excellent, with only mild fading slightly dulling the yellow tone in the authorÂ’s name. We note a barely discernible .75 inch clear tape reinforcement at the lower front hinge of the recto and clear tape reinforcements on the verso to the hinge extremities and upper front flap fold. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. Dune is speculative fiction in the fullest sense. In Dune, Herbert created a reality at once compellingly foreign and provocatively familiar in philosophical, political, and cultural strictures tightly woven by Herbert and then cathartically disrupted. Herbert populated this reality with characters personal enough for the reader to identify and invest, yet potent enough to serve as allegory. Dune was revolutionary, even within the genre. Classic science fiction elements of galactic empire and faster than light space travel interleave with Homeric tragedy, biblical exile, suffering, and revelation, mystic states of altered consciousness, ecological sustainability as an ethos, and socio-political tensions between order and anarchy, revolution and reconciliation. Dune was long, complex, strange, and unprecedented – and predictably rejected by more than 20 publishing houses before being improbably accepted by Chilton, a Philadelphia operation known for auto repair manuals and hobby magazines. Many writers take an odd, tortuous path to literary greatness. Frank Patrick Herbert, Jr. (1920-1986) proved the rule. Herbert had worked as a writer for more than two decades before Dune, but was a “chronically broke” writer who had worked as a journalist, war photographer, and even an interlude as a Congressional speech writer. 1959 found a 40 year old Herbert on the sand dunes near Florence, Oregon, researching a story about a U.S. Department of Agriculture program to stabilize the shifting sands. “Herbert was a quintessential product of the libertarian culture of the Pacific coast, self-reliant and distrustful of centralized authority, yet with a mile-wide streak of utopian futurism and a concomitant willingness to experiment.” The Oregon dunes proved fertile ground for creative epiphany. HerbertÂ’s research into dunes became research into deserts and desert cultures, thence two short, serialized novels that he then re-worked into the single, giant epic that became Dune. An unqualified critical success, Dune won both the 1965 Nebula and 1966 Hugo awards for best novel. Commercial success was slower, but the fan cult grew during the 1970s and Dune became a lucrative franchise, with a series of sequels authored by Herbert, followed by more than a dozen additional Dune novels authored by HerbertÂ’s son after his death.

      1965. First Edition . HERBERT, Frank. Dune. Philadelphia and New York: Chilton Books, (1965). Octavo, original blue cloth, patterned endpapers, original dust jacket. $9000.First edition, in first-state dust jacket, of the first science fiction novel to win both the Hugo and Nebula awards, “an imaginative tour de force” (Anatomy of Wonder).Dune was awarded the first Nebula award for best science fiction novel, shared the Hugo award, and ""became one of the most famous of all science fiction novels"" (Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, 559). ""Politics and metaphysics are tightly bound into a remarkably detailed and coherent pattern; an imaginative tour de forceÂ… The series demonstrates how a good SF writer's ability to build a coherent and convincing hypothetical world can serve the purpose of making philosophical and sociological questions concrete; the series thus becomes a massive thought experiment in social philosophy, and is more considerable as such than Asimov's Foundation series or Bradley's Darkover series"" (Anatomy of Wonder II:524). Adapted as a feature film 1984, directed by David Lynch and starring Kyle MacLachlan, and as a 2000 television miniseries. First-state dust jacket, with price of $5.95 and publisher's imprint on four lines on rear flap. Currey, 238. A few mild discolorations to cloth.

        Aspects of the Theory of Syntax

      Cambridge: MIT Press, 1965. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Association copy. First edition, first printing in supplied first issue dust jacket, unclipped with small tear in top of front panel, slightly edge-worn and spine-sunned, Very Good overall. x, 251 pp. Original navy cloth with gilt spine lettering. A few small stains in text. Pioneering Dutch linguist P.A. Verburg's copy with his stamp on front endpaper; his marginal notes, underlines, and small diagrams are throughout text in pen and pencil. Verburg (1905-1989) examined the history of linguistics in 1952 with his Taal En Functionaliteit, translated most recently in English in 1998 as Language and Its Functions. Chomsky's work along similar lines with Aspects and the following year's Cartesian Linguistics would garner much more attention worldwide, influencing the fields of linguistics and philosophy for decades. Verburg's marginal impressions in this copy should provide insight of an important, if oft-neglected predecessor's impressions of Chomsky's breakthrough work.
