        Photo Album Documenting Construction of Plaza Theater]

      Munn Photography [ca. 1966-1967], Jacksonville, FL - Oblong folio commercial album measuring approximately 15.5" x 12". Burlap covered boards with matted color photograph mounted to front. 22-ring clasp metal binding. 27 yellow construction paper pages containing 53 approximately 8" x 10" photographs (47 black and white, 6 color) mounted both recto and verso. Several related news clippings and articles loosely laid-in. Split in burlap at joint, though cover securely attached. Title photograph on front board with substantial fingerprinting, handling wear. Age toning to edges of interior paste-downs and occasionally at page edges. Five photos with tiny areas of image loss from having stuck to the print mounted opposite. Otherwise contents bright, clean, and well-preserved. About very good. Album carefully documenting the construction of The Kent Theaters, Plaza "Rocking Chair" Theater on Phillips Highway (U.S. Hwy #1) in Jacksonville, FL which opened its doors January 27, 1967. Photographs thoroughly detail construction, from groundbreaking to completion: concrete placement, steel erection, masonry, interior construction, placement of the rooftop A/C unit, signage, projector and speaker installation, workers and laborers, as well as finished shots of the theater's interior and exterior. All black and white construction images dated, beginning 9/1/66 and ending 1/23/67. The six color photos are undated, though were likely captured on or around the theater's opening day to showcase the finished work. A full page, color ad from January 26, 1967 issue of the JACKSONVILLE JOURNAL is laid-in. The Plaza's amenities, including ample parking, ("1,000 FREE PARKING SPACES" according to the ad), rocking chair seats and easy access to expressways, marked a sea change in options for the moviegoing public - a move that culminates in our modern multiplexes.

        A series of 9 Autograph Letters Signed, 3 autograph postcards (with an autograph postcard from Murdoch's husband John Bayley) to Roger Sharrock and his wife Betty.

      - With six autograph envelopes, date stamped between 1966 and 1985. Informal and friendly correspondence to Professor Sharrock and his wife Betty in the form of letters, note cards and postcards spanning nearly 20 years. Mostly written from Murdoch's Steeple Aston home where she lived for thirty years with her husband, the literary critic John Bayley, with one letter from their North Oxford home in Charlbury Road. Professor Roger Sharrock (1919-1990) was an academic specialising in John Bunyan, who held professorships at the University of Durham and King's College London. Two letters refer to Murdoch's mother's failing health:'. my mother has been with us since earlier July, getting progressively iller, those who looked after her in London having given up. She has now had a mental collapse followed by a stroke, and it is not clear how far on she will recover. It has been a very sad time. .' (Steeple Aston, 9 August, no year)An undated letter (?1983) refers to a piece Sharrock had written on Yeats - 'Yeats - yes, how mixed I feel about him' and discusses his visit to Korea.'I hope the Koreans understood it. I fear their Buddhism is a bit nasty. No one I talked to would admit to being a Buddhist, though several said they were Confucians! We enjoyed being there - very afflicted country though. .' In a more prosaic postcard, John Bayley writes to Betty Sharrock recommending that she tries araldite. 'I do hope it does the trick - I think it will!'

        The Green Hornet (Archive of original screenplays for the 1966 television series)

      Los Angeles, CA: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1966. Archive of original Final draft scripts for four episodes of the 1966 action/sci-fi TV series. Included are scripts for "The Hunters and the Hunted" (season 1, episode 11), "Deadline for Death" (season 1, episode 12), "The Secret of the Sally Bell" (season 1, episode 13), and "Hornet Save Thyself" (season 1, episode 23). Included is a brief note, mimeographed, from Stan Hough, assistant director for several films throughout the 1950s and 1960s, but his association with "The Green Hornet" is unknown. Notations in holograph ink on the front wrapper of each script, including the name of Norman Foster (marked through on "The Hunters and the Hunted" script), who directed one episode of the series, "The Praying Mantis," George W. Trendle and Fran Striker developed the Green Hornet character in the 1930s, initially for a radio series (1936-1952), followed by two movie serials: "The Green Hornet" (1940) and "The Green Hornet Strikes Again!" (1941), both directed by Ford Beebe. After a brief hiatus, the character was revived with the 1966-1967 American Broadcasting Company (ABC) TV series, "The Green Hornet," featuring Van Williams as Britt Reid, and Bruce Lee as Kato in their first starring roles. Kato, in particular, greatly boosted Lee's popularity and the public's general interest in martial arts. The two appeared as their crime-fighting title roles in two episodes of ABC's "Batman" series, strangely as anti-heroes: "A Piece of the Action" (season 2, episode 51, 1967) and "Batman's Satisfaction" (season 2, episode 52, 1967). Several episodes were edited together and released as a feature, "The Green Hornet," in 1974. Along with producer William Dozier's other notable project, the 1966-1968 TV series, "Batman," "The Green Hornet" would be short-lived. Still, the crime-fighting man-in-the-mask with superhero-like abilities, or "Mystery Men," like Batman, The Green Hornet, and Green Arrow, remain as popular as ever. "The Hunters and the Hunted": top-level racketeers are murdered, each one with a different weapon. The Green Hornet is contacted by an informant, who is killed before he can help. With help from Kato, the Green Hornet searches for an important list that will incriminate the criminals. "Deadline for Death": reporter Mike Axford is connected to a series of robberies, linked by the fact that he interviewed each victim. When Axford is jailed on charges of murder, his boss Britt Reid sets out to uncover the truth. As the Green Hornet, Reid investigates several leads, with the help of his trusted sidekick, Kato, however, capturing the crook without destroying their witness proves to be a difficult task. "The Secret of Sally Bell": Two million dollars worth of narcotics have been smuggled into the country, and the only man who knows where they are is in a coma. The Green Hornet presumes the whereabouts of the drugs, and tracks down the head of the operation. He offers his help in locating the drugs, pretending to want a piece of the action. But the crooks have no plans of sharing. "Hornet, Save Thyself": Green Hornet is caught in a frame-up, accused of killing an enemy with a gun he held at the scene of the crime. He goes on the run and tries to prove his innocence. All scripts in blue titled wrappers, noted as FINAL on the front wrappers, dated variously between September 20, 1966, and December 30, 1966, with credits for executive producer William Dozier, and producers Richard Bluel, and Stan Shpetner (1 script). Two scripts ("Hunters," "Deadline") include call sheets bound in, and all but 1 script ("Hornet, Save Thyself") include shooting schedules bound in. Near Fine overall. Complete collation details available on request. Harmon, pp. 48-49. Lentz, p. 1860-1861. Terrace, p. 265.

        A General Theory of Rational Behavior in Game Situations'. Pp. 613-634 in: Econometrica, Vol. 34, No. 3, July, 1966.

      1966 1966 - Entire issue offered. Original wrappers. Near Fine. The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 1994 was awarded jointly to John C. Harsanyi, John F. Nash Jr. and Reinhard Selten 'for their pioneering analysis of equilibria in the theory of non-cooperative games.' 'In his paper 'A General Theory of Rational Behavior in Game Situations' John Harsanyi gave the, now, most commonly used definition to distinguish between cooperative and non-cooperative games. A game is cooperative if commitments--agreements, promises, threats--are fully binding and enforceable. It is non-cooperative if commitments are not enforceable' (Paul Walker, 'A Chronology of Game Theory'; www [dot] econ [dot] canterbury [dot] ac [dot] nz/personal_pages/paul_walker/gt/hist [dot] htm). 'Most of the research today is following the classification of Harsanyi (1966) regarding cooperative vs. non-cooperative game theory. He defines a cooperative game as a game where commitments are fully binding and enforceable' (Julia Drechsel, Cooperative Lot Sizing Games in Supply Chains, 2010, p. 7).

        Winston S. Churchill: The Official Biography, a full set of British first editions, comprising 8 main text volumes (signed by the author in the final volume) and 16 accompanying document volumes

      London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1966. First editions. Hardcover. This is a full, British first edition set of the Official Biography of Winston S. Churchill, signed by the author in the final main text volume. The author?s signature is inked in blue just below his printed name on the Volume VIII title page. The Official Biography was begun by Winston?s son, Randolph Churchill (1911-1968), and completed by Sir Martin Gilbert (1936-2015). In 1962, at the age of 25, Martin Gilbert joined Churchill's biography team, then led by Churchill's son Randolph. Of what became his life's work, Gilbert says: "I'd thought I'd last four or five months." Instead, when Randolph died in 1968 with only two of the eight volumes completed, Gilbert took over, committing the substantial portion of his scholarship and life's work to documenting, comprehending, and communicating what Gilbert called the "remarkable and versatile life" of Winston Churchill. The result is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life. The British first editions of the eight main text volumes were originally published between 1966 and 1988. Each of the first six main text volumes was accompanied by either two or three volumes of documents, titled ?Companion? volumes. Under Sir Martin?s authorship, 16 of these document volumes were completed (with documents spanning 1874-1941). While additional documents volumes for the balance of the official biography will be issued in the U.S. by Hillsdale College under different authorship, a full British first edition set will remain limited to the 24 volumes offered here. All 24 British first edition volumes, comprising the eight main text volumes and the 16 documents volumes, weigh 84 pounds and command 4 feet 8 inches of shelf space. This full British first edition set of 24 volumes features near fine volumes and dust jackets. The volumes all remain square and tight, with clean, bright contents. We find no ownership marks apart from the author?s Volume VIII signature and the sticker of the venerable London bookseller Henry Sotheran Ltd. on the lower Volume I front pastedown. Of note, laid in at the Volume I endpapers is a 1997 Sales Invoice, indicating that Sotheran sold this set at the time, absent the final War Papers documents volume (not yet published) and the signed Volume VIII for 2,370 British Pounds. We find no spotting in the set. The first 21 volumes were issued with red topstain, which varied in hue over the 22 years spanning publication. Just a few volumes ? notably the Volume V Companions ? show appreciable sunning of the topstain. The dust jackets are complete, with no losses. Of note, all eight main text volumes feature uniform, solid color dust jackets and uniform red cloth bindings with red topstain. (The final three volumes were also issued in a cheaper ?popular edition? with illustrated dust jackets, different color bindings, and no red topstain.) Shelf presentation is excellent. All eight main text volume dust jackets retain bright, unfaded spine color, including the highly fade-prone jackets of Volumes III, IV, V, and VII. Also worthy of note, the red dust jackets of the three War Papers (the final three British first edition document volumes) are also unfaded. The fade prone spine subtitles of the all of the white-jacketed document volumes remain clearly legible. All dust jackets are unclipped, retaining the original flap prices, with the sole exception of main text Volume V. The lower front flap of the first edition dust jacket originally featured two prices, an introductory price ?until February 28th, 1977? with a higher price above. Only the introductory price has been clipped, the higher price remaining intact. Each of the dust jackets is newly fitted with a clear, removable, archival quality protector. Please note that this set will certainly require additional shipping cost; do expect this cost to be reflective of the set?s exceptional size and weight.

        Excerpts from the Acid Test

      San Francisco: Sound City Productions. [1966]. The first recording by the Grateful Dead, who, up until a month earlier, had been known as The Warlocks. A 7" 33 RPM promotional record, labeled "For Radio Play Only, Not for Sale," with excerpts from the Acid Test album that Sound City was producing. The recording was made at the Sound City studio which was the site of the seventh Acid Test: the Acid Tests were communal events/happenings that Kesey and others had developed that were open to the public and at which LSD -- aka "acid," which was still legal in California at the time -- was distributed to the attendees. The Sound City Acid Test, because it took place in a recording studio, was more of a private event than earlier, or later, Acid Tests. It was also the last one Kesey himself participated in. He had been arrested for marijuana possession for the second time two weeks earlier, and had had to show up in disguise at the sixth Acid Test a week earlier at Longshoremen's Hall in San Francisco, in order to avoid reporters and the police. Within a week of the Sound City Acid Test, with his court case pending, Kesey left the country and went into hiding in Mexico. The Grateful Dead had been the house band for the Acid Tests since they began in 1965, but under their earlier name of The Warlocks. By December 1965 they were starting to use their new name, and at the Acid Tests in January they were being billed as The Grateful Dead. This is the first time they were recorded as the Dead in a recording made for general release. The promo record was issued in March, 1966, and preceded the full length album released later that month. The only earlier recordings of the Grateful Dead are private ones that have made it into circulation as bootlegs or survive in their archives; this, and the Acid Test album from which it was excerpted, were not only intended for public release but were also covered by "a couple of radio stations and a photographer for Look magazine" according to the Sound City press release, although the Look article apparently never appeared. "The purpose of the recording was to produce an album of unusual sounds, mental manipulations of the sometimes considered genius of Mr. Kesey and his cohorts during the actual happenings of a 'sugar' [i.e., LSD] party. The results are different to say the least..." The Acid Test album itself is quite scarce; it was re-released in the 1980s in a limited edition. This promotional giveaway record is exceedingly uncommon, and a landmark for one of the most influential and long-lasting rock and roll bands to come out of the San Francisco Bay Area of the 1960s. The Grateful Dead went on to a 30-year career and became the most popular improvisational "jam band" of its time, triggering any number of similar jamming, touring bands in its wake, and capturing an essence of the hippie counterculture that has lived on long after its historical moment passed. Fine, in a plain white sleeve. A scarce recording from the San Francisco counter-culture, and a seminal recording of one of the great rock bands of all time. First Edition. No Binding.

        The Master and Margarita.

      [Moscow:] , [1966 & 1967]. Octavo. Two volumes bound as one in near-contemporary black cloth-backed blue boards, later paper label to front board in manuscript. Board edges worn and scuffed, hinges split but text block tight, contents lightly toned. A very good copy. A samizdat copy, formed of tear sheets from the first appearance in print of The Master and Margarita, which was serialized in two issues of the journal Moskow in November 1966 and January 1967. It is bound in quintessential amateurish fashion, with an anonymous binding due to lack of specialist equipment (the label was a later addition), and was then disseminated by hand through informal networks. This first printing of Bulgakov's best known work is a censored version of the text, eliminating much of the anti-Soviet satire, yet it still caused an immediate sensation on publication. Although the novel was completed in 1938, in common with most of Bulgakov's prose it was not published until long after his death in 1940. The first edition in book form was published by the YMCA Press in Paris in 1967, in a still further censored form of the Russian text. The full text was first published in English later in 1967 (there are two different English translations, one of the censored text and one of the full text). The first appearance of the full text in Russian was published in Frankfurt in 1969. During his life, Bulgakov was best known for the plays he contributed to Konstantin Stanislavsky's and Nemirovich-Danchenko's Moscow Art Theatre. He published a number of novels and stories through the early and mid 1920s, but by 1927 his career began to suffer from criticism that he was too anti-Soviet. By 1929 his career was ruined: government censorship prevented publication of any of his work and staging of any of his plays, and Stalin personally forbade him to emigrate.
