         Six Lectures On Modern Natural Philosophy (Inscribed By Author To Hilda Geiringer Von Mises)

      Berlin: Springer-Verlag, 1966. First Edition . Brown Cloth. Near Fine. 17 Pp. Brown Cloth Stamped In Black. A Bright, Clean, Unworn, Unmarked Example. No Fading, Hinges Tight. Inscribed By Truesdell "For Hilda V. Mises From Her Admiring If Incorrigible Friennd Clifford." Hilda Geiringer (1893-1973) Was An Austrian Mathematician.She Was Born In 1893 In Vienna, Austria Into A Jewish Family. She Received Her Ph.D. From The University Of Vienna In 1917 Under The Guidance Of Wilhelm Wirtinger With A Thesis Entitled "Trigonometrische Doppelreihen" About Fourier Series In Two Variables. She Spent The Following Two Years As Leon Lichtenstein's Assistant Editing The Jahrbuch Über Die Fortschritte Der Mathematik, A Mathematics Review Journal. Although Trained As A Pure Mathematician, Geiringer Moved Towards Applied Mathematics To Fit In With The Work Being Undertaken At The Institute Of Applied Mathematics. Her Work At This Time Was On Statistics, Probability Theory, And Also On The Mathematical Theory Of Plasticity. She Submitted A Thesis For Her Habilitation To Qualify As An Instructor At The University Of Berlin, But It Was Not Immediately Accepted. Geiringer Lost The Right To Teach At The University In December 1933. In Fact, She Had Been Proposed For Appointment To The Position Of Extraordinary Professor In 1933 But The Proposal Had Been "Put On Hold" Once The Civil Service Law Came Into Effect Two Months After Adolf Hitler Attained Power. This Law Disqualified Jews From Serving As Teachers, Professors, Judges, Or In Other Government Positions. Geiringer Left Germany After She Was Dismissed From The University Of Berlin, And, With Her Daughter Magda, She Went To Brussels. There She Was Appointed To The Institute Of Mechanics And Began To Apply Mathematics To The Theory Of Vibrations. In 1934, Geiringer Followed Von Mises To Istanbul Where She Had Been Appointed As Professor Of Mathematics And Continued To Research In Applied Mathematics, Statistics, And Probability Theory. While In Turkey, Geiringer Became Intrigued With The Basic Principles Of Genetics Formulated By Augustinian Monk Gregor Mendel. Between 1935 And 1939, She Was Preoccupied With Uses For The Theory Of Probability To Which She And Von Mises Had Made Major, Early Contributions. Arguably Hilda Geiringer Was One Of The Pioneers Of What Emerged As The Burgeoning Disciplines Bearing Such Names As Molecular Genetics, Human Genetics, Plant Genetics, Heredity In Man, Genomics, Bioinformatics, Biotechnology, Biomedical Engineering, And Genetic Engineering, Among Others. Her Pioneering Work Was Largely Overlooked Mainly Because It Was Done In Istanbul And Published In Turkish Journals.Following Atatürk'S Death In 1938, Geiringer And Her Daughter Went To Bryn Mawr College In Pennsylvania In The United States, Where She Was Appointed To A Lecturer Position. In Addition To Her Lecturing Duties At Bryn Mawr College, Geiringer Undertook, As Part Of The War Effort, Classified Work For The United States National Research Council. During 1942, She Gave An Advanced Summer Course In Mechanics At Brown University In Providence, Rhode Island, With The Aim Of Raising The American Standards Of Education To The Level That Had Been Attained In Germany. She Wrote Up Her Outstanding Series Of Lectures On The Geometrical Foundations Of Mechanics And, Although They Were Never Properly Published, These Were Widely Disseminated And Used In The United States For Many Years. Geiringer And Her Long Time Collaborator Richard Edler Von Mises Married In 1943 And, The Following Year, She Left Her Part-Time, Low-Pay Lecturing Post At Bryn Mawr College To Be Nearer To Him And Because The Wheaton College Offered Her First Permanent Position In The Usa. She Accepted A Post As Professor And Chairman Of The Mathematics Department There. In 1953, Richard Von Mises Died And The Following Year, Geiringer, Although Retaining Her Job At Wheaton College, Began To Work At Harvard, Completing And Editing Many Of Von Mises' Unfinished Works.

         A SMALL ARCHIVE CONSISTING OF 14 LETTERS by the BEAT-ERA AUTHOR & VISUAL ARTIST FIELDING DAWSON, MOST SIGNED, to his friend the experimental novelist & screenwriter RUDY WURLITZER. Together with a COLLAGE by Fielding Dawson & a SIGNED copy of his little book "Man Steps Into Space".

      1966-67 and 1997. . Good. - An archive of letters, mostly typed and signed by Fielding Dawson, addressed to his friend the novelist and screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer. Included in the archive is a Collage by Dawson created from black & white newspaper clippings, titled "Her Escape From Somnambulism. Dated December 30th, 1966, the collage is annotated, inscribed to Rudy and signed on the verso. Also included is Dawson's 8 page booklet "Man Steps Into Space", Inscribed to Rudy on January 1st, 1967. A telegram to Rudy from Taos, New Mexico, opens with "Angst here too...." [possibly a reference to a line in NOG: Ill tell you a secret, we called you Dr. Angst because of the gloom on your face.]Ten substantial, stream of consciousness letters, addressed to Rudy, are dated from February 8, 1967 to March 3, 1968. Most are typed and signed by Fielding Dawson. Most of the letters are signed "Fielding" though some are simply signed "Fee". Fielding Dawson's first book "An Emotional Memoir of Franz Kline" was published in 1967 and he makes mention of sending the carbon of his book to Philip Guston. In his February 11, 1967 letter, Dawson mentions a "ruthless session with Lefford" in which he discussed his mother & childhood. He is possibly referring to the psychologist A. Lefford who co-authored the monograph "Intersensory Development in Children" with H. Birch in 1963. In his postcript to this letter, Dawson writes "Do you know, at one time, I was the catcher in the rye?". In an annotation penned in ink at the top, he mentions that "I told Lefford there was a problem at Black Mtn". His January 24, 1968 letter has much on his "Black Mountain" book with several references to Robert Creeley and Charles Olson. In a postscript, this letter contains a reference to Rudy Wurlitzer's book "Nog": "I hope your book comes along better".In a subsequent letter, dated July 23, 1968, addressed to the psychologist Dr. Lefford, Fielding Dawson signs himself "Annihilatr" [sic] and expresses his growing anxiety resulting from being rejected by the women in his life and his inability to write in this state: "What worries me is the sense of panic I feel, the feeling of being totally rejected and abandoned way out of proportion to event." The letter was shared with Rudy but possibly not actually sent to Lefford.Three letters dated from March 13, 1997 through July 22, 1997 describe Dawson's consultations with his therapist "Nina". He's included related material with the letters and in a couple of instances shares with Rudy copies of letters he wrote to "Nina", heavily corrected in ink.A unique archive which provides much insight into the author's life and writings. The Beat-era short story author, novelist and avant-garde artist, Fielding Dawson (1930-2002) studied at Black Mountain College under Franz Kline and Charles Olson. His collages and paintings illustrated several poetry books and literary magazines. His often painfully raw stream of consciousness writings sought to draw out and evoke a sense of humanity. He was one of a group of poets whose works were identified with with the Black Mountain school. Several were to return to teach, joined there by such seminal figures as Willem de Kooning, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Buckminster Fuller, and others. A conscientious objector, he served as a cook in a military hospital when drafted in 1953. Returning to New York, he caroused with the likes of Franz Kline, Philip Guston, Robert Motherwell, and Jackson Pollock. They often were the subjects of his writings. An advocate of prison reform, he taught writing to maximum security prisoners at prisons such as Sing-Sing and Attica and read their works on the weekly radio progam "Breaking Down The Walls".

         All the Assholes in the World and Mine

      Bensenville, Ill: Open Skull Press, 1966. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good. Saddle-stitch staple bound mauve wraps, printed in black. First edition, and one of only 400 copies. Very Good or better, with faint, uneven sunning to wraps, light stress creases at staples and spine. A ground-breaking work in the micro-genre of dirty old men named Charles recounting their hemorrhoid surgery, which some say paved the way for Charles Willeford's 1977 memoir, A Guide to the Undehemorrhoided. Despite these men's bold efforts, it remains virtually impossible to this day to correctly spell the word "hemorrhoid" without the help of auto-spell check--a luxury neither Bukowski nor Willeford enjoyed.

         Ma Madre Lizzie [Because I Was Flesh]

      Torino: Einaudi, 1966. Near Fine/Near Fine. First Italian edition of Dahlberg's autobiography Because I Was Flesh. Translated by Rodolfo Wilcock. Foxing on top edge else about fine in slightly spine-toned, near fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by Dahlberg to his seventh and final wife, the Irishwoman Julia Lawlor: "For my lovely, round Celt, her very clear smile. Much love, Edward. Dec. 25, '66. Unholy Christmas. The Blessed Way of the Merchant and his Avarice. 64 Rivington St. N.Y.C." This title was dedicated to his sixth wife, Rhlene (the printed dedication, in Italian reads "A mia moglie Rlene," in the original edition it is rendered: "For my wife Rlene"). Dahlberg married his seventh wife, Judith Lawlor in 1968, but at the time of this publication Dahlberg was reportedly living with both Rlene and Judith, mostly in Dublin. From the library of Dahlberg's close friend Coburn H. Britton, the owner of the Horizon Press, and founder of Prose magazine. Dahlberg and Britton were extremely close, with Britton considering Dahlberg his second "Father," and Dahlberg referring to Britton as his professed "Son." Britton was the dedicatee of Dahlberg's book The Gold of Ophir: Travels, Myths and Legends of the New World. (1972). A significant, if slightly confusing association copy.

         Styx: bulletin skupiny Lacoste [Styx: bulletin of the Lacoste group], no. 1

      Brno, 1966. Folio (30 × 21.5 cm). Original side-stapled wrappers with typewritten title and small original watercolor illustration; 38 pp. of mimeographed typescript, with small photographic prints, and and [3] leaves of original photographs. Last three leaves detached from staples; upper spine extremity split; still a rather good copy of a fragile publication. First issue of the rare surrealist samizdat journal Styx, issued in Czech with partial translations into French, from 1966 to 1969. The preface states that "bureaucratic hurdles" prevented the publication of a fully illustrated, offset-printed volume showcasing the art and writing of the Lacoste group, a Brno-based association of surrealist artists. In lieu of the former, this first issue of Styx can be considered Lacoste's manifesto: it includes a survey detailing the members' definitions of the movement, their key influences, and thinly-veiled questions about surrealism's role in a repressive political environment. A short "sociological" study explicitly mentions ways in which surrealism survives in Czechoslovakia despite the state's official stance against it. Also included are poetic texts, an experimental surrealist play, Pajurek's photo-illustrated lyrical "found dictionary" and a list of visual works, accompanied by seven photographic prints (four more showing work by Frantisek Deák were apparently removed by the editors, because he had left the group in August 1966). This is no. 60 of 98 numbered copies, signed by all four authors, and inscribed to Danish artist Henny Kjer. All in all, five numbers were issued (numbered 1-7, but with nos. 2 and 5 never published). The print runs ranged from 98 to 128 copies. A very uncommon glimpse into one of the various ways surrealism survived in post-war Czechoslovakia, along with the activities of Skupina Ra and other groups. Not in KVK, OCLC. The only institutional holdings we can find are at the Centre Pompidou.

         [Folk Art]: Wooden Scroll Work Patriotic Picture Frame with Photos of American Servicemen

      Very Good. Elaborate scrollwork folk art display which houses photographs of seven American serviceman, presumably all members of the same family, who served in the military during World War II or the Vietnam War. While the servicemen are not identified, the dates of their individual service are written in ballpoint ink on the sides of each image (four during WWII and three from the early stages of the Vietnam War, with the last date being 1966). The patriotic motif encompasses several hand cut elements: an American eagle, several American flags, the motto "God Bless America," and an American patriotic shield or crest, amongst which are seven separate spaces, each containing a photograph of an American serviceman in uniform. All of these elements have been affixed to an elaborately scroll-sawed background piece, which in turn has been affixed to burlap in a homemade shadow box-type frame that has been glazed. It is not clear whether this is a memorial piece or just commemorates the service of various family members. A few small breaks on the scrolled wood background, a couple of the photos show some exposure to light, but overall stable and very good or better. A fascinating patriotic artifact encompassing two generations of American military men.

      Routil, K. Saller, Verzeichnis der Gusinde-Arbeiten (1966), pp. 5-7. A massive scholarly report on the indigenous peoples of Tierra del Fuego, by the Catholic priest, ethnologist and anthropologist Martin Gusinde (1886-1969), who spent a total of 22 months as a participant observer among them during four visits in the years 1918 to 1924. He took part in the initiation rites of the Selk'nam (Onawo) and was inducted as a member. He also provides important information about the flora and fauna, though primarily in the context of their use by the indigenous peoples. Most of the illustrations show photographs. Gusinde also made audio recordings of the indigenous music and renders numerous examples here in Western musical notation. The series title-pages all read Die Feuerland Indianer, but the facing volume title-pages name the various indigenous groups: Die Selk'nam vom Leben und Denken eines Jägervolkes auf der grossen Feuerlandinsel; Die Yamana vom Leben und Denken der Wassernomaden am Kap Hoorn; Die Halakwulup vom Leben und Denken der Wassernomaden in West-Patagonien; and Anthropologie der Feuerland-Indianer. It remains the definitive study of these peoples, often based on direct observation of activities that have since fallen victim to encroaching Western culture, and all subsequent studies take Gusinde's work as their starting point. "Das Werk enthält völkerkundlich höchst wertvolle Abbildungen!" (Saller).With library (deaccession) stamps. With a tear repaired along the fold of 1 chomolithographed map (but the map is repeated in the other two volumes) and an occasional very minor blemish, but otherwise in fine condition. The definitive study of the indigenous peoples of Tierra del Fuego, with more than 600 illustrations, preserving a gold mine of cultural information that would otherwise have been lost forever.

         Apollo Programs Presentation to AC Electronics 5 January 1966

      Elmhurst 73, New York: Kollsman Instrument Corporation, 1966. First Edition. Comb. Good. First Edition. Various paginations. 8 1/2 x 11 inches. Comb bound. Blue / white printed stiff wrapper with title cutout. Mimeographed, on recto only (verso blank). Creasing, wear to covers, some minor loss to comb binding, old paperclip markings. Previous owner name (H. Dickerson) pencilled underneath title. Clean internally. Comb. In 1963, NASA selected a group of five prime contractors to work on the Apollo program. AC Spark Plug (eventually AC Electronics) (a part of General Motors) was selected to develop the spacecraft guidance and navigation systems for the Apollo space craft. A period press release notes AC "enjoyed success in the inertial guidance field since entering the technological field pioneered by the work of Dr. C. Stark Draper of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Instrumentation Laboratory." Two other major contractors were announced at the same time: Kollsman Instrument Corporation (optical subsystems, including a space sextant, sunfinders, and navigation display equipment) and Raytheon Corporation (the onboard digital computer).MIT would retain overall direction of the project, in essence coordinating the different companies. By Feb of 1964, the management structure was changed. "AC Spark Plug would become the principal contractor, with the Raytheon Company and Kollsman Instrument Corporation as subcontractors. MIT would still have primary responsibility for system design and analysis." On October 14, 1964, the first Apollo "guidance system completed acceptance testing and was shipped at 11:30 p.m. and arrived at Downey, California, early the following day. AC reported that in more than 2,000 hours of operation they had found the system to be "remarkably reliable, accurate and simple to operate." (the above timeline derived from the GM Heritage Center) The document offered here, dated June 1965, is part of the next phase (which extended through 1969) which was expected to cover manufacturing and testing of the real Apollo guidance systems. The document (from Kollsman Instrument Corporation to AC Electronics*) is a detailed 3 month progress report. On display is the amount of intense cross-company planning and coordination necessary for major contractors to work together. Delivery schedules (everything from test fixtures to Optics Cleaner Kits, LEM trainer simulators, MSC Lunar Trainer, LEM GSE cleaner kits). An Apollo Optical Subsystem program summary with work delivery schedules (both high level and subsystems), major engineering investigations, etc. A major section covers Design Evaluation with similar detail. Then Production Status, starting with an airborne critical shortage list. Everything necessary for AC Electronics to measure the progress of one of it's major subcontractors. *[AC Spark Plug became AC Electronics earlier in 1965] A tour de force of major manufacturing/design planning, ripe with internal planning and progress information not often found "in the wild" for projects of this importance. Ever want to study how space program work actually proceeded? How many moving parts there were? Perhaps the coolest aspect - only a few items delivered by this time have serial numbers over 8. Cradle period innovation on display. No one had ever done this before. Highly recommended for anyone interested in major project planning in the space program. Genuinely rare. We find no copies of this (or any other Kollsman / AC Electronics presentation) in OCLC as of this writing, nor have we handled such in 20 years in the business.
