        Apollo Programs Presentation to AC Electronics 5 January 1966

      Kollsman Instrument Corporation, Elmhurst 73, New York 1966 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time

      The Macmillan Company 1966 - First edition. (All first printing points present: stated "First Printing" on copyright page, no mention of later publisher Angriff Press, full page count, does not state "First published in 1966 by" on title page.) 1348pp. Fine in Fine dust jacket, absolutely unfaded with very light shelf wear. Clean, bright pages. A superb copy, easily the best we've ever seen.Professor Carroll Quigley's magnum opus, a world history of power with a focus on the Anglo-American elite. In many ways Quigley was a complex bundle of contradictions: a conservative defender of Western civiliation who opposed the Vietnam War and was Bill Clinton's mentor at Georgetown. During the early cold war he was a true Washington insider who worked as a consultant for the Defense Department, the Navy, and other government entities, but his work is most often referenced by perennial outsiders like the John Birch Society and conspiracy researchers like the late Jim Marrs.

        With Prejudice. War Memoirs.

      1966 - Folding graph, maps (5 double page), illustrations, drawings in the text after the author. First edition. 8vo., cloth, dust jacket. London, Cassell. Bomber Harris's copy, with his pencil ownership signature 'Harris' to the front free endpaper, and his pencilled comments and markings in the text, most of which he has indexed on the rear pastedown, reinforcing them in ink. Loosely inserted an intact first day cover, franked Bomber Command Museum Jersey 19 Nov 81, signed 'Arthur T. Harris MRAF', a small photograph of Harris and Tedder studying a map with a junior officer, and a newspaper clipping containing an article defending Harris from the smears on his reputation begun by Sir Solly Zuckerman. Harris' notes and markings cover some 27 pages and one endpaper, some 12 being simple markings down the margin, the remaining annotations betraying Harris' anger with Tedder. On one page Harris has erased a comment in the lower margin on a reference to himself 'Even Harris, who cooperated most loyally', and in his index has copied the last three words and added an exclamation mark, and on one of the illustrations captioned 'The Tedder Carpet' he has written 'Hitting nothing!'. All the annotations betray considerable anger and exasperation, evidence that Tedder and Harris did not get on, many of the remarks brief but emphatic: ' a lie', 'rubbish', 'nonsense', 'another cheap smear'. Tedder was appointed Deputy Supreme Commander at SHAEFunder General Eisenhower, after a long and distinguished career in the RAF, which began when he saw service with the RFC in the Great War. In the early years of the Second World Warhe was Air Officer CommandingRAF Middle East Command, where he adoptedthetactic of area bombing which became known as the 'Tedder Carpet'. Dust jacket nicked and torn at the head and tail of the spine with some small loss, reinforced on the reverse. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Ben Shahn (1898-1969) enjoyed a long career as a social realist artist and left wing visionary, widely recognized for his murals, paintings, commercial illustrations and photography, he collaborated with Diego Rivera and undertook commissions for the Farm Security Administration. Perhaps his most famous work, the Jersey Homesteads Mural, has also been linked to the Haggadah and the themes of slavery, the struggles of immigrants, deliverance and redemption were important throughout his career.

Note that this is obviously a heavy and oversized set, so significant additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~RCL~ [40.0P] The 15-volume Theosophical Publishing House collected writings of H.P. Blavatsky. Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891) was a Russian occultist, spirit medium and author who co-founded the Theosophical Society in 1875. She gained an international following as the leading theoretician of Theosophy, the esoteric religion that the society promoted. Blavatsky was a controversial figure during her lifetime. Her Theosophical doctrines influenced the spread of Hindu and Buddhist ideas in the West as well as the development of Western esoteric currents like Ariosophy, Anthroposophy, and the New Age Movement. Associating it closely with the esoteric doctrines of Hermeticism and Neoplatonism, Blavatsky described Theosophy as 'the synthesis of science, religion and philosophy,' proclaiming that it was reviving an ancient wisdom which underlay all the world's religions. . Very Good. 1966.

        THE GENIUS OF THE CROWD

      [Cleveland]: 7 Flowers Press, 1966. First Edition. One of 103 copies. Slim octavo (15.5cm); 11 leaves consisting of letterpress printed envelopes, stapled and glued into illustrated wrappers, printed in black, blue, and red; with an illustrated cover and five linoleum-cut prints by Paula Marie Savarino. A fresh, Fine copy. Pristine copy of this elusive and legendary chapbook featuring one of Bukowski's best poems, printed by Cleveland poet d.a. levy and Asphodel Bookshop proprietor Jim Lowell. Both men continually drew the ire of Cleveland police, who eventually raided Lowell's shop in 1966, confiscating nine cartons of books and periodicals while they searched the placed for narcotics. "Among the seized items was Bukowski's The Genius of the Crowd. In true mimeo tradition, levy printed only 103 copies of Bukowski's chapbook, and 63 of them were confiscated and destroyed by the Cleveland police. Bukowski did not forget this episode, and he penned a prose piece for A Tribute to Jim Lowell (1967), where he claimed that "'obscenity' is the word they use to excuse their own rot in order to raid the works and outposts of creative men...the creative artist has always been continually harassed by officialdom" ("Untitled"), an obvious reference to the police operation" (Debritto, Abel. Charles Bukowski, King of the Underground: From Obscurity to Literary Icon, p.83). Among the scarcest and most coveted of Bukowski's publications, and one that is seldom found in pristine condition. OCLC notes 20 copies in institutional hands. Krumhansl 21; Dorbin A9; Taylor & Horvath P-117.

        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.

Bond noted that "at that time Caversham Park was staffed almost entirely by refugees: Russian and Polish people and different nationalities My Paddington Bear books also had a character who was a Hungarian refugee – Mr Gruber" (BBC interview, 13 February 2012). The character of Mr Gruber, a Notting Hill antique dealer, was Paddington's great friend in the series. Bond stayed closely in touch with Etele and Barbara for many years after he left Caversham.
