        Original Painting for the Artists Tower of Protest (also known as: "The Peace Tower")

      Original painting for the 1966 "Artists Tower of Protest" (also known as "The Peace Tower"). Approximately 24" x 24". Signed on the rear "Angela Kosta" on an affixed label with her Chicago address. Modest corner wear, but near fine. The painting in white, orange, and red, depicts a figure hugging its knees, confined in a triangle which is itself within a circle. The Peace Tower was a 58-foot steel tetrahedron erected in 1966 on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles to protest the Vietnam War. This two-foot by two-foot work on plywood, painted by artist Angela Driessen-Kosta, was one of 418 panels that were attached to the structure designed by the sculptor Mark di Suvero. Artists from around the world contributed to the tower, including Elaine de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Rauschenberg (who provided the bulk of the funding to complete the work).According to Driessen-Kosta: "My intention was to create an 'anti-war' poster. The central figure is expressing grief and is in a confined or 'hopeless' space. The bright colors were used to attract attention but also resemble a 'stop sign' as in stop wars." She received a degree in art education from Western Michigan University and did postgraduate work at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She was a photographic set and window display designer in Chicago for 16 years, then moved to San Diego in 1979, where she mounted numerous exhibitions and received a variety of awards. Her artwork is primarily mixed media and sculptural assemblages. The Peace Tower was dedicated on February 26, 1966 with speeches by Susan Sontag, Irving Petlin, and former Green Beret Donald Duncan. During the three months it stood, the tower and artists were continually under attack. Volunteers from Watts, the recent scene of race riots, assisted in defending it. Efforts were made to relocate the work to another permanent location, but none were successful. Ultimately, the tower itself was dismantled and cut up, the artworks were wrapped in brown paper and anonymously auctioned off by The Los Angeles Peace Center, raising $12,000, according to Art, Politics and Dissent: Aspects of the Art Left in Sixties America (2000) by Francis Frascina. The Peace Tower was controversial for more than just its unpopular position against the Vietnam War. It represented the first instance of American artists coming together to create a collective work of art in political protest. "In order to fully contextualize the Peace Tower as well as other efforts artists would make to combine art and politics in their work from 1966 onward, one must understand how such efforts would have been undesirable and unwelcome in the American fine arts system of the 1960s," wrote Matthew Israel in his book Kill for Peace: American Artist Against the Vietnam War (2013). The Tower is also now a model for organizing collective artistic endeavors.In 2006, the Whitney Museum staged a recreation of the tower in protest of the War in Iraq, and Driessen-Kosta was among the few original Peace Tower artists invited to contribute to this work. A bright and vivid depiction of Vietnam Anti-War art. .

        [Typescript Review of]: Hell's Angels by Hunter S. Thompson

      [circa 1966]. Typescript review of Hunter S. Thompson's first book, here mis-titled The Hell's Angels, by Beat novelist and critic Herbert Gold. Five letter size leaves, typed rectos only with Gold's address and ink and pencil corrections throughout. Folded from mailing with wear to the extremities and toning to the bottom halves of all pages, else very good. The review is positive, reportedly as were most at the time. Gold describes the book as "a comic nightmare, woven of several strands: accurate documentation of 'runs' and parties, ecstatic meditation on cycles and machinery, and a fitful litany for the injured souls of America." He specifically comments on the immersive nature of Thompson's reporting, noting that the work "has this quality of total immersion... touching at the various meaning of his adventure, singing goofy and horrifying rhapsodies of involvement." An interesting contemporary look at the book that brought Thompson a national audience. .

        Typed Letter Signed

      Los Angeles: np. 1st Edition. No Binding. SIGNED LETTER by Ansel Adams, revealing his philosophy on photography as "true communication." Written on personal stationery in Los Angeles, CA on October 25th, 1966, Adam's letter to a Mr. Owing reads: Dear M[r]. Owing: I have your letter of the 19th; this can be but a short hasty reply, as I am involved in m[y] University project without let-up! Your questions are difficult to answer simply! You must first define "abstract". I think there can be no Abstract photography (ex1/2ect [sic] the Photogram). I prefer to think of the tern [sic] "Extract". At any event, we can use almost any subject material and-by the way we "see" it and apply techniques we can deviate from "reality" (if we use the term Reality in the accepted sense). The question really is: do we communicate with others, or really just talk to ourselves? I think 95% of contemporary art is simply talking to ourselves; reaffirming the "cult", or tribal relationships. I personally feel that the expression of subconscious feelings, etc. is only valid when such expression really touches others and contributes something to their understanding. Very little photography does this, I am afraid. I think you can visualize an image as such; True communication requires more than just creating an image in the minds [sic] eye, and then producing it as a print! No matter what this image means to you, it does not have essential value unless it can create a sense of elevation and comprehension of the realities of the world and of the spirit on the part of the spactator [sic]. Here is where the study of the human situation is as important - or more so - than the study of photography and art by the photographer. We make hundreds of quite remarkable photographers that say precisely nothing of real human importance! Please write again! cordially [Signed] ANSEL ADAMS Indeed, true to his philosophy, Adams "sought an intensification and purification of the psychological experience of natural beauty. He created a sense of the sublime magnificence of nature that infused the viewer with the emotional equivalent of wilderness, often more powerful than the actual thing" (William A. Turnage, American National Biography). (In 1963, Adams received a commission from University of California President Clark Kerr to photograph the UC system in commemoration of the university's centennial. The resulting collection is titled Fiat Lux and was published in 1967. Fiat Lux is the "University project" Adams refers to in the letter.) Los Angeles, CA: October 25, 1966. One (7 x 8.5 inches) page. With holograph corrections. An outstanding letter with fascinating content.

        De la misere en milieu etudiant: considéréé sous ses aspects economique, politique, psychologique, sexuel et notamment intellectuel et de quelques moyens pour y remédier

      Strasbourg. Reliure originale. Trés bon état. / Fine Condition. First Edition.. Strasbourg, 1966. 8°. 28 pages sous couvertures bleues. Broché (Softcover). Reliure originale. Trés bon état. / Fine Condition. First Edition. [Supplément spécial au No. 16 de 21-27 Etudiants de France] L'Internationale situationniste (IS) était une organisation révolutionnaire désireuse d'en finir avec le malheur historique, avec la société de classes et la dictature de la marchandise, se situant dans la filiation de différents courants apparus au début du XXe siècle, notamment de la pensée marxiste d'Anton Pannekoek et de Rosa Luxemburg, du communisme de conseils, ainsi que du groupe Socialisme ou barbarie (Claude Lefort, Cornelius Castoriadis notamment) dans les années 1950. En ce sens, elle pourrait être apparentée à un groupe d'ultra-gauche. Mais elle représentait à ses débuts l'expression d'une volonté de dépassement des tentatives révolutionnaires des avant-gardes artistiques de la première moitié du XXe siècle, le dadaïsme, le surréalisme[1] et le lettrisme[2]. Formellement créée en juillet 1957 à la Conférence de Cosio di Arroscia, l'internationale situationniste est née du rapprochement d'un ensemble international de mouvements d'avant-garde, dont l'Internationale lettriste (elle même issue d'une rupture avec le Lettrisme de Isidore Isou), le Mouvement international pour un Bauhaus imaginiste, le Comité psychogéographique de Londres et un groupe de peintres italiens. Son document fondateur, Rapport sur la construction de situations..., a été rédigé par Guy Debord en 1957. Dans ce texte programmatique, Debord pose l'exigence de « changer le monde » et envisage le dépassement de toutes les formes artistiques par « un emploi unitaire de tous les moyens de bouleversement de la vie quotidienne ». L'un des principaux objectifs de l'Internationale situationniste était l'accomplissement des promesses contenues dans le développement de l'appareil de production contemporain et la libération des conditions historiques, par une réappropriation du réel, et ce dans tous les domaines de la vie. Si le dépassement de l'art fut son projet originel, elle s'est rapidement orientée vers une critique de la société du spectacle, ou société « spectaculaire-marchande », corroborée d'un désir de révolution sociale. L'année 1962 voit la scission entre « artistes » et « révolutionnaires » et l'exclusion des premiers. D'un point de vue organisationnel, l'IS conserve la position très marxiste d'un parti théorique représentant le plus haut niveau de conscience révolutionnaire. La théorisation de cette position ne se fera qu'assez tardivement dans la Définition Minimum des Organisations révolutionnaires (IS n°11), adoptée par la 7°Conférence de l'IS en 1967, qui sera en France l'une des références du conseillisme d'après mai 1968, et en 1969 dans les Préliminaires sur les conseils et l'organisation conseilliste (IS n°12).

        Original Painting for the Artists Tower of Protest (also known as: "The Peace Tower")

      Original painting for the 1966 "Artists Tower of Protest" (also known as "The Peace Tower"). Approximately 24" x 24". Signed on the rear "Angela Kosta" on an affixed label with her Chicago address. Modest corner wear, but near fine. The painting in white, orange, and red, depicts a figure hugging its knees, confined in a triangle which is itself within a circle. The Peace Tower was a 58-foot steel tetrahedron erected in 1966 on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles to protest the Vietnam War. This two-foot by two-foot work on plywood, painted by artist Angela Driessen-Kosta, was one of 418 panels that were attached to the structure designed by the sculptor Mark di Suvero. Artists from around the world contributed to the tower, including Elaine de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Rauschenberg (who provided the bulk of the funding to complete the work).According to Driessen-Kosta: "My intention was to create an 'anti-war' poster. The central figure is expressing grief and is in a confined or 'hopeless' space. The bright colors were used to attract attention but also resemble a 'stop sign' as in stop wars." She received a degree in art education from Western Michigan University and did postgraduate work at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She was a photographic set and window display designer in Chicago for 16 years, then moved to San Diego in 1979, where she mounted numerous exhibitions and received a variety of awards. Her artwork is primarily mixed media and sculptural assemblages. The Peace Tower was dedicated on February 26, 1966 with speeches by Susan Sontag, Irving Petlin, and former Green Beret Donald Duncan. During the three months it stood, the tower and artists were continually under attack. Volunteers from Watts, the recent scene of race riots, assisted in defending it. Efforts were made to relocate the work to another permanent location, but none were successful. Ultimately, the tower itself was dismantled and cut up, the artworks were wrapped in brown paper and anonymously auctioned off by The Los Angeles Peace Center, raising $12,000, according to Art, Politics and Dissent: Aspects of the Art Left in Sixties America (2000) by Francis Frascina. The Peace Tower was controversial for more than just its unpopular position against the Vietnam War. It represented the first instance of American artists coming together to create a collective work of art in political protest. "In order to fully contextualize the Peace Tower as well as other efforts artists would make to combine art and politics in their work from 1966 onward, one must understand how such efforts would have been undesirable and unwelcome in the American fine arts system of the 1960s," wrote Matthew Israel in his book Kill for Peace: American Artist Against the Vietnam War (2013). The Tower is also now a model for organizing collective artistic endeavors.In 2006, the Whitney Museum staged a recreation of the tower in protest of the War in Iraq, and Driessen-Kosta was among the few original Peace Tower artists invited to contribute to this work. A bright and vivid depiction of Vietnam Anti-War art. .

        THE MOON IS A HARSH MISTRESS - SIGNED & INSCRIBED

      New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1966. Third Printing. Octavo; terracotta cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spine and author's initials in gilt on lower front panel; dustjacket; 383pp, [1]. Signed by Heinlein on the title page, and inscribed by him on the front endpaper: "To Al Lewis - Warmest good wishes, Bob. 1 Oct. 67." Hint of a forward lean, with slight oxidation to spine gilt and a tiny stain to right edge of front endpaper; Near Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $5.95), with a few pinpoint rubs to spine ends, light rubbing to author's portrait on rear panel, and six small pieces of clear tape on verso; Near Fine. Widely considered Heinlein's finest novel, 'The Moon is a Harsh Mistress' earned Heinlein his fourth and final Hugo Award in 1967. First issued as a five part serial in Worlds of If magazine, the novel tells the story of a sentient computer that helps a group of rebels overthrow the authorities on a Moon colony. This copy inscribed to Al Lewis, an active and long-time member of the Los Angeles Science Fiction Society (formerly Los Angeles Science Fiction League), which Heinlein joined in the spring of 1939, shortly after he began writing (see William H. Patterson, Jr's. ROBERT A. HEINLEIN: IN DIALOGUE WITH HIS CENTURY, Vol.1, p.238). The inscription is dated just over a month after Heinlein was awarded his fourth Hugo Award. Signed/inscribed copies of Moon are genuinely rare; the only inscribed copy in the auction record sold 24 years ago (Sotheby's, 1991), and the only signed copy we know of was offered by a colleague in 2002. Owings p.12.

        Spontaneous Symmetry Breakdown without Massless Bosons" in Physical Review Volume 145, 1966, pp. 1156-1163

      FIRST EDITION OF THE NOBEL PRIZE WINNING 1966 PAPER IN WHICH PETER HIGGS PREDICTED THE 2012 DISCOVERY OF THE HIGGS BOSON. A type of subatomic particle, bosons are able to occupy the same point in space as do other different matter particles (like electrons) which otherwise can never overlap. "Many Higgs bosons clumped together make up the Higgs field, this field causes particles to have mass. Without the Higgs field, the universe would just be individual particles zipping around at the speed of light, no atoms of any kind would exist. The Higgs field is everywhere so particles travel through it all the time. However, particles with a greater mass will interact more with the Higgs field than particles with a lower mass. This would explain why two particles, which are the same size, can have different masses" (Impact, Univ. of Nottingham, 29 October 2013). "In 1966 [and in this paper], Higgs followed up on his earlier work and wrote a longer paper in which he considered the decay of the massive boson. This showed that if vector bosons have acquired their masses as a result of spontaneous symmetry breaking, the more massive the vector boson is, the greater its affinity for the Higgs boson. In 1967, Steven Weinberg recognized that the electron too can acquire mass by this mechanism. If spontaneous symmetry breaking gives mass to all fundamental particles - whether they are the massive W and Z bosons, or fermions such as the electron, its more massive sibling the muon, and even heavier tau - it will be the decay pattern of the Higgs into these various particles that will prove it. According to the theory, the Higgs boson will tend to produce the massive flavors of a given family more readily than their lightweight counterparts" (Close, The Infinity Puzzle, 167). Understandably unstable, it took until 2012 to prove Higgs correct.  At CERN in Switzerland, protons were accelerated nearly to the speed of light and then were smashed together. If Higgs was correct, in one out of every 10 billion collisions, a Higgs boson will be formed. However, even if one is formed, it can't be observed directly because it exists for so short a time before breaking down. To account for this, physicists at CERN recorded the remnants of the collision and worked backwards, piecing together what particles came from the decay of the Higgs. By doing this, they have found the previously undiscovered boson. CONDITION & DETAILS: Full volume. Lancaster: American Physical Society. 4to (10.75 x 8 inches; 268 x 200mm). Entire volume, continuously paginated pp. 1-1360. Higgs paper: pp.1156-1163. Ex-libris with minimal markings (handsome pictorial plate on paste down and no spine markings whatsoever). Illustration: In-text figures throughout. Exterior: Bound in gold buckram with a gilt-lettered spine. Tight, solid. Interior: Bright and very clean throughout. Fine condition in every way.

      Ohne Ort, o. J. (1966).. 1 S., Fol. (42 x 29,6 cm).. Fragment aus dem Sprechstück "Inscene 1" mit Text sowie Dynamik- und Artikulationsangaben. - " [...] Ein Jahr vor der Inscene 2', Ende 1966, entstand Zykans Inscene 1', die einen wesentlichen Schritt zu jener inneren Stimmigkeit darstellte. Das Acht-Minuten-Stück basiert auf einem kritischen Text von Helmut Heißenbüttels: der Plakat-Theorie' [...]. Diese grimmige Anklage Heißenbüttels gegen die von Werbung und Meinungsmanipulation beherrschte Konsumgesellschaft wurde von Zykan für fünf Stimmen vertont, wobei abwechselnd gesungen und gesprochen werden muß [...]" (H. Krones in: "Stimme und Wort in der Musik des 20. Jahrhunderts". Wien u.a., 2001). - "Zykan widersetzte sich auch beharrlich der kommerziellen Vermarktung seiner Musik. Er legte zwar großen Wert auf minutiöse Dokumentation seiner Arbeit, suchte aber zu seinen Lebzeiten zu verhindern, dass Aufführungen ohne ihn und ohne seine Aufsicht stattfanden. Manchmal gingen auch die Unterlagen zu seinen Kompositionen nach der Uraufführung verloren oder wurden zerstört" (Wikipedia). - Wenige kl. Randeinrisse. -

        Bomb Hanoi

      1966. WARHOL, Andy. [Bomb Hanoi]. Some/Thing #3 (i.e. Vol. 2, No. 1). 8vo., bound in original illustrated wrappers. New York: [N.P.], 1966. |~||~||~||~| Rare example of the first state of Warhol's famously ironic comment on the Vietnam War: an entire magazine cover of 12 stamps, bearing the words "BOMB HANOI" within yellow "happy-face" circles. This is the first, suppressed issue of the cover with the perforations separating the buttons printed, but not actually perforated. Andy's original idea was to have actual perforated stickers, with glue on the back, each proclaiming Bomb Hanoi. The printer erred and printed the perforations rather than making perforations. Andy stopped production and asked for the job to be redone so there is also a version with perforated stickers -- though this first state is many times scarcer. "In 1966, that 'honorary member' of the new sensibility, Andy Warhol - whose multiple-image Pop paintings often resemble stamp sheets - created a non-denominational sheet of stamps as the cover of the literary magazine Some/Thing #3. On each stamp the legend "BOMB HANOI" floats in the middle of a yellow orb. In exact terms Warhol's was not a postage stamp, but a "campaign" stamp, the kind that political or other special interest groups publish to affix to letters (e.g. Easter Seals). As I recall, Warhol has also done a painting of a sheet of S&H Green Stamps" (Peter Frank, "Postal Modernism: Artists' Stamps and Stamp Images"). A mint copy!
