        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. Dust jacket with minor rubs to upper corners only, faint toning to spine and rear panel. Near-fine condition.

        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.

        Two Original Pages of Hand-Typed Cut-Up Writings

      London, England: William S. Burroughs, Circa 1965. Original Manuscripts. Single Sheets. Very Fine. "Dear Charles Plymell:/ "Now" is an excellent (magazine) and I thank you for/ sending it to me-- Reading through the issue I typed out passages that/ struck some particular chord of association in one column and in another/ column pieces of dream and text and the last words of Dutch Schultz and/ the Farmer's Almanac preparing a composite text which I hope you can use/ in a subsequent issue. I enclose (also) the two columns from which the text was made to show the method.. Best of luck with (your) (magazine)/ Cordially/ William S. Burroughs." Thus does the foremost figure of the Beat Generation & Beyond describe two pages of his hand-typed text, created for & sent to legendary literary outlaw Charles Plymell. The pages were indeed published in the third & last issue, "Now Now Now," in 1965 (Maynard & Miles, C129, pg. 143). The mid-1960s was the high tide of WSB contributions to myriad independent-underground magazines, at the zenith of the "Mimeo Revolution." For example, at the same time that these pages were reproduced in Charles' journal, short works by WSB appeared in many issues of Jeff Nuttal's "My Own Mag." WSB continued his friendship & fruitful collaborations with Charles & his wife Pamela Beach Plymell for the rest of his life. The Plymells' Cherry Valley Editions published WSB's Cobblestone Gardens (1976) & Tornado Alley (1989). We most highly recommend the article "Charles Plymell and Now" by Jed Birmingham on the great website Reality Studio: A William S. Burroughs Community (, which contains a wealth of information about WSB, Charles Plymell & this intensely productive period, including images of these pages as they appeared in the issue. We offer these two original pages, known by the title of the composite text as "Afterbirth of Dream Now," which we obtained directly from the Plymells. As WSB explained in the note to Charles quoted above, there are apparently four ingredients mixed in the page of columns & further mixed in the page of composite text subsequently prepared from them: Passages from the first issue of "Now"; fragments of WSB's dreams; quotes from the last, hallucinatory deathbed statements of 1930s American gangster Dutch Schultz; & the venerable Farmer's Almanac. As all WSB aficionados know, he dedicated an entire book-length work to Schultz's fascinatingly proto-cut-up last words, the complete, definitive version of which appeared in 1975, a decade after these pages were typed; and that among the highlights of his latest works is My Education: A Book of Dreams, a record-diary of his dreams published three decades later in 1995. These precious, original pages constitute the most singular, important WSB collectible we have ever offered thus far- the cut-up method in action by its supreme practitioner at the height of his inspiration & innovation. Both pages with text on one side only in relatively very fine condition despite their age & delicacy: Two-columned cut-up text on off-white blank letter size (8&1/2" x 11") paper with two light horizontal creases across surface where originally folded into thirds; very light creasing & waving throughout surface; very minor rubbing & a few spots at blank margins of same; one thin angled cut along blank upper left edge & corner (approx. 1&2/3"); tiny fold at lower right corner. One-column composite cut-up text on light green letter size ledger sheet with rounded corners & three mechanically punched holes near blank left edge; two light horizontal creases across surface where originally folded into thirds; very light creasing across surface esp. textless margins; two very small spots at blank upper edge near right corner. Both texts esp. one-column composite alternate between black & red typewriter ink; two-column text with nine X'd-out words or small groups of words; occasional misspellings, scramblings & connecting of words that are not necessarily the result of WSB's cut-up method, but rather exemplary. Hand-typed manuscripts by William S. Burroughs.

        NADA: Original Collage Artwork by Charles Plymell, Created & Completed at 1403 Gough St., San Francisco While Living with Neal Cassady

      San Francisco, CA, 1965. Original Artwork. Original Collage Artwork on Stiff Board. Near Fine. By 1965, Charles Plymell was at the forefront of avant-garde printing & publishing, and like other legendary Beat authors and artists, had lived at 1403 Gough St. in San Francisco. Contextualizing the larger literary scene at the time, what is nebulously referred to as “The Mimeograph Revolution” was well under way. Ed Sanders, Ted Berrigan & others in New York City were publishing magazines like “Fuck You/A Magazine of the Arts” and “C,” gathering poems from “the best minds” of their generation in iconic yet shoddily-produced staple-bound literary magazines. On the West Coast, a similar wave was occurring, but not every small-press publisher that is historically-referenced under the “Mimeo Rev” grouping had to work within the limitations of a mimeograph machine. Such is the case with Charles Plymell, a poet, collage artist and publisher with an illustrious history as a printer. Among the many now-legendary publications printed by Plymell was “Bulletin from Nothing,” a DADA-inspired magazine which featured contributions by William S. Burroughs, Ed Sanders, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Bob Kaufman, and editors Claude Pelieu and Mary Beach, distant cousin of famed proprietor of Shakespeare & Company, Sylvia Beach. Charles PlymellÂ’s association with Beach & Pelieu began when Lawrence Ferlinghetti suggested they come to San Francisco in late 1963. They accepted FerlinghettiÂ’s invitation, arriving soon after and bringing with them BeachÂ’s daughter (and later PlymellÂ’s wife), Pamela. The family of three came to 1403 Gough St. to visit Allen Ginsberg, who had just returned from his well-documented sojourn in India represented in his now-classic publication "Indian Journals." Ginsberg told Plymell he came to San Francisco to help Neal Cassady work on a novel he intended to complete, and he was looking for a place to stay. Plymell offered Ginsberg a room in his flat, and before long both Ginsberg & Cassady had moved into the home. Earlier that same year, Plymell inaugurated his public career as a collage artist when he exhibited a show of collages at Billy JharmarkÂ’s infamous Batman Gallery. Plymell had become increasingly interested in the collage format after discovering the work of William S. Burroughs. He had just published the first issue of NOW magazine, which Burroughs personally commended him on through letters, later sending him two pages of cut-up text to be incorporated into an upcoming issue (See TMB Item #2908). Contemporaneous with the publication of the second issue of NOW (“NOW NOW,” 1965), Plymell contributed an original collage-artwork to the first issue of “Bulletin from Nothing,” a similarly-produced magazine, this time edited by Mary Beach & Claude Pelieu. Offered here for the first time ever is the original collage Plymell contributed to “Bulletin from Nothing,” an artwork which he finished while sharing a home at the legendary Gough St. residence with Allen Ginsberg and Neal Cassady. The piece is what Plymell refers to as a “Pic Story” collage with original poem, and exemplifies his biting wit and stalwart, controversial nature. For 50 years the collage was in possession of its creator-- the legendary poet, publisher, and printer Charles Plymell--until it was obtained directly from the artist by Third Mind Books. The discerning scholar and collector can rest assured that this artifact was certainly once held & examined by Ginsberg and Cassady themselves in the same home where Ginsberg first saw Robert LaVigneÂ’s portrait of Peter Orlovsky, where legendary literary soirees were for a time routine, where Ginsberg helped Cassady eek out pages of what was to become “The First Third,” where the hippie counter-culture was incarnated in embryonic stages through pioneering small-group experiments with original LSD from Albert HoffmanÂ’s Sandoz Pharmaceuticals & Mescaline from Light Laboratories in England. Now, for the first time ever, a piece of Beat History from this most important literary crossroads is here offered for sale. Collage in near fine condition with moderate rubbing, bumps, chipping & creases throughout; glue smears dating back over 50 years to collage creation; small section of collage at bottom left-hand corner coming unglued from stiff backing board; a few original pictures within collage coming slightly unglued with age but still firmly affixed to board. Original Collage Artwork by Charles Plymell.

        Way of Seeing

      1965. First Edition . LEVITT, Helen. A Way of Seeing. Photographs of New York with an Essay by James Agee. New York: Viking, (1965). Oblong octavo, original black cloth, original photographic dust jacket. $3200.First edition of this timeless collaboration between Levitt and Agee, illustrated with 50 black-and-white photogravures of LevittÂ’s lyrical and provocative images.“Helen Levitt was the first American photographer to fully comprehend the essence of Henri Cartier-BressonÂ’s photographic message and put it into practice. Like Cartier-Bresson, she understood how to combine intuition and intellect to forge sophisticated, lyrical compositions from commonplace events” (New York Times). According to ArtForum, “Levitt may well be the most celebrated and least known photographer of her time.” “Though it did not see print until 1965, A Way of Seeing, Helen LevittÂ’s first published collection of photographs was essentially completed in 1948. All the pictures in it had been taken over the previous decade in the streets of Yorkville, Harlem, and the Lower East Side, and many of them had already been on exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art. James Agee, dead ten years in 1965, had written his essay for the book in 1946Â… Although Agee may not have been the first writer to apply the word lyrical to LevittÂ’s marvelously serendipitous images of urban street theater, his essay was for some time their most persuasive critical frame. In this edition, his text literally brackets the 50 photos, which are arranged in an episodic montage-bleak, antic, poignant; sometimes melodramatic, often comic-at once suggestively narrative and as ephemeral as a passing glance” (Roth, 178). Agee, Levitt and photographer Janice Loeb (to whom this book is dedicated) also collaborated on two films: The Quiet One (1948) and In the Street (1952). Icons of Photography, 84. Open Book, 214-15. Book fine; light edge-wear, slightest dampstaining to spine head of bright, near-fine dust jacket.

        Charlotte Moorman spielt "Variations on a theme by Saint-Saëns by Nam June Paik". - Original Vintage Silber Gelatine Abzug. Mit handschriftlicher Bezeichnung von Nam June Paik und dem roten Atelierstempel von Peter Moor auf der rückseitig handschriftlich datiert "Aug. 25-1965" und mit "G5" nummeriert.

      New York, 25. August 1965 - 16,3 x 23,7 cm. Nam June Paik bearbeitete Camille Saint-Saëns "Schwan" aus dem "Carneval des animaux" zum Happening mit Charlotte Moorman. Als Variationen sind dabei die Verschiebung der Rollen der Beteiligten zu verstehen. Mitten im Spiel der Komposition legt die Musikerin ihr Instrument zur Seite und steigt in ein mit Wasser gefülltes Ölfass. Im durchnässten Abendkleid spielt sie das Stück nach kleiner kurzen Unterbrechung weiter. Bei den Aufführungen anlässlich der Europatournee wurde Morrman in durchsichtige Plastikfolie verpackt. Das dabei entstehende platschende Geräusch steht im Gegensatz zu den gleitenden Töne der Komposition. "Variations on a Theme by Saint-Saëns has become emblematic of Paik and Moorman's performative collaborations, perhaps because she brilliantly deployed two of his action-music strategies: surprise and disappointment". (John Rothfuss, Topless Cellist, S. 116". Das Stück wurde im Februar 1965 in Philadelphia uraufgeführt. Mit über 50 Aufführungen wurde es das meist gespielte Stück der Künstlerin. Die vorliegende Aufnahme entstand anlässlich des 2. Festival of the Avant Garde mit Mike Kirby und Joe Jones als Stuhl, bzw. Celloständer.

      Paris, Jean-Jacques Pauvert, 1965. 1965, 1965, in-8, 64 p, broché, couverture illustrée, Maurice Sinet alias Siné, est un dessinateur à l'humour corrosif. Il est connu pour ses dessins de presse et ses caricatures politiques. Sa verve, sujette à controverses, l'amènera à quitter les rédactions de L'Express et de Charlie Hebdo. Son recueil "Complaintes sans paroles", publié en 1955, est récompensé par le Grand Prix de l'humour noir créé par l'écrivain Tristan Maya. Après avoir travaillé à L'Express comme dessinateur politique, il fonde en 1962 son propre journal "Siné Massacre", puis créé "L'Enragé" avec l'éditeur Jean-Jacques Pauvert. De 1981 à 2008, il fait partie de la rédaction de Charlie Hebdo. A 80 ans, il lance un hebdomadaire au ton satirique intitulé "Siné Hebdo", devenu depuis"Siné Mensuel". Haut-le-coeur est un album qui regroupe des dessins, en couleur ou en noir et blanc, dont 6 en double page. Siné peint des petites scènes amusantes, voire absurdes dont la compréhension presque instantanée provoque des éclats de rire. Il quadrille différents sujets d'ordre politique, religieux ou sociétal. Comme le précise Siné dans son avertissement, certains dessins sont "orduriers, d'autres obscènes", et s'il s'amuse à représenter des toilettes dans diverses situations, est-ce peut-être pour donner au lecteur un "haut-le-coeur" cathartique? Cet album était l'exemplaire de Jacques Delarue (1919-2014), résistant, historien et ancien commissaire de Police. Exemplaire truffé -un dessin original portant la signature de Siné - De son surnom "Bob", il signe aussi plusieurs cartes postales envoyées au couple Delarue - quatre tirages argentiques d'époque, lors d'une séance de dédicace de Siné pour son recueil "Complaintes sans paroles". On le voit entouré notamment de Suzanne (sa première épouse), Jacques Delarue et Jean-Jacques Pauvert - Deux autres tirages argentiques d'époque, de petite taille, qui représentent des scènes entre amis - une coupure de dessin de presse de Siné - une carte de voeux de 1967 - un carton d'invitation pour la signature des "Dessins de l'Express" de Siné, "Mon procès" de Georges Arnaud et "Défense politique" de Jacques Vergès - planche cartonnée intitulée "Petit bonhomme Toto aime la Toilette" de Siné
