        Aspen: The Magazine in a Box, Vol. 1, No. 2

      (New York: Aspen. 1966). First. Issue 2, "The White Box." Designed by Frank Kirk, with Tony Angotti. Contains the following items:1. "Farewell to a Canyon" by an unnamed author, 14 loose pages in card folder.2. "Ski Racing / Edging the Possible" by Martin Luray, single page accordion-folded into card folder.3. "Scriabin Again and Again..." by Faubion Bowers, small booklet.4. "The Adaptable House" by Peggy Clifford, large poster folded into small card folder.5. "The Young Out's VS the Establishment," small booklet with short essays by Lionel Trilling, Stanley Hirsin, Abby Mann, Norman Corwin, Robert Blumofe, Arthur Knight, John Burchard, David T. Bazelon, Robert Osborn, Albert and David Maysles, Jean Renoir, Carroll Baker, Eva Marie Saint, Dr. Karl Menninger, Jack Garfein, and Richard Dyer MacCann.6. Music by Alexander Scriabin played by Daniel Kunin, original 33 1/3 acetate flexi-disc recording.Some wear and soiling to the white box, otherwise all items in fine condition. Aspen was a multimedia "magazine" about the arts published by Phyllis Johnson, a former editor for Women's Wear Daily and Advertising Age, from 1965 to 1971. Each issue was a custom-made box containing separate booklets, pamphlets, records, posters, and in one issue, a Super-8 movie reel -- each item representing what would have been an article in a traditional printed magazine. Each issue had its own editor and designer, which provided unprecedented artistic originality. However, not surprisingly, its avant-garde format made it impractical, if not downright impossible, for the magazine to support itself. Advertising was supposed to help pay for the costs of production, but the ads, which were contained in a folder at the bottom of the box, were easily ignored. Furthermore, it proved difficult to adhere to the publication schedule of four issues a year. In the end, only ten issues were published. A much repeated assessment is: "Perhaps Aspen was a folly, but it was a vastly pleasurable one, with a significant place in art history. The list of contributors included some of the most interesting artists of the 20th Century. And as an exemplar of creative publishing, Aspen was a wonder. Its contents, however, are all but lost: few copies of Aspen have survived." .

        [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. .

There were 188 subscribers for the series, but it is possible that the number printed, though unknown, was somewhat in excess of this figure. There have been no further editions until this 1966 facsimile edition by publishers Reed; reproducing faithfully, without alteration or correction, every page of an original copy. Printed by offset lithography in seven colours on paper specially made to simulate that used in the original edition, and bound in the style of the period. Printing and binding by Kyodo Printing Co., Tokyo. George French Angas (1822-1886) English explorer, naturalist and painter, and eldest son of George Fife Angas, businessman and banker, who had played a significant part in the formation and establishment of the Colony of South Australia. Arriving in Adelaide in January 1844, Angas joined Sir George Grey on several expeditions into the interior of South Australia, documenting his impressions of the newly established colony, its inhabitants, landscape, and its flora and fauna. Angas also spent seven months in New Zealand returning to South Australia in 1845. After his return to England, publication of his paintings and notes for this volume were initiated.

        Makers of Modern Strategy: Military Thought from Machiavelli to Hitler

      New York: Atheneum, 1966. 553 Pages Indexed. The purpose of this book is to explain the manner in which the strategy of modern war has developed, in the conviction that a knowledge of the best military thought will enable readers to comprehend the causes of war and the fundamental principles which govern its conduct. The editors believe that eternal vigilance in such matters is the price of liberty and if there is to be a durable peace there must be a clear understanding of the role which armed force plays in international society. In chapter 2 is shown that the greatest military historians of our time have felt a need to apologize for their interest in military problems because dislike for war and ignorance concerning its role in human affairs have led peaceful peoples everywhere to deprecate its significance in history and ignore its portentous meaning for our future. For it is not force, in itself, which is wrong but the purposes to which force is sometimes put. As Pascal said almost three centuries ago, we must realize that: Justice without force is impotent. Force without justice tyrannical. The American nation is the foremost military power of modern times. The manner in which we use this great power is momentous for ourselves and for the world. Contents in Five parts: The Origins of Modern War From the 16th Century to the 18th Century, The Classics of the 19th Century Interpreters of Napoleon, Form the 19th Century to the First World War, From the First to the Second World War, and Sea and Air War. .

      Chavarri and Arce Editores, Mexico City 1966 - Large folio (22" x 14.25" ; 56 cm x 36 cm), [75] pp, including 17 facsimile plates lithographed on silk and matted, each with a leaf of explanation, 4 plans, and a facsimile of the original (1841) title page. The final 4 plates are tinted yellow. The edition was limited to 1000 numbered copies, of which this is #170. This deluxe edition -- it is hard to imagine anything more deluxe -- is quite uncommon: there are no appearances at auction, and only 14 library holding on OCLC. The original edition of this is virtually unobtainable. The effect of the lithography on silk is quite remarkable -- photos attached -- imparting a luminosity and intensity to the prints that is not always present in the originals. The first edition of 1841 had only 12 plates, showing notable city buildings, while this has 17, the latter group of 5 being Gualdi's famous panoramic views of Mexico City. In addition, this is a presentation copy to the well-known Chicago architect, William Pereira (1909 - 85), who was noted for his futuristic designs, including the landmark Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco. One silk a bit wrinkled, otherwise all are in perfect condition, and imminently frameable. The binding is full calf, decorated in gilt, with some minor rubbing. Very good copy.

        PASSAGES 22-27 OF THE WAR

      [Berkeley]: Oyez, [1966].. Pictorial wrappers, handbound into red cloth. Fine. First edition, first issue, hardbound (presentation) issue. One of six copies, specially bound, with a handwritten limitation statement by Duncan, in this case illuminated by a multicolored ink border: "4 of 6 bound by Dorothy Hawley and signed by the author Robert Duncan for John Martin." Bertholf's discussion of a collage of photographs and newspaper clippings may have been particular to the copy he examined, and the extra illumination by Duncan of the colophon present in this copy does not figure in his description and may be particular to this copy for presentation to his future publisher. Laid in front is a small slip of paper, bearing Denise Levertov's address, in Duncan's hand. By virtue of the limitation, a rare form of this title. BERTHOLF A19b.

        Original Photographs of Hank Bauer in Presentation Binder from Life Magazine

      Folio. Spiral bound flexible red plastic Life Magazine wrappers. Binder is near fine with a little light wear. Clear sheets enclosing fifteen fine, original black and white, or sepia-toned photographs of baseball player Hank Bauer when he was manager of the World Series-winning 1966 Baltimore Orioles. Each photo has the back mark of Life Magazine, and the name of the photographer. Ten are by Bob Gomel and are labeled for an article "Baseball - Hank Bauer," the other five are by Jerry Brimacombe for an article "Sam McDowell." Sizes of each are approximately 8.5" x 13". Apparently prepared for two different articles, we can only presume that they were given to Bauer in this presentation folder. Bauer is pictured alternately pensive, playful, and pugnacious, including a series of photos of him nose-to-nose with an equally unhappy umpire. The hardnosed Bauer had been a Marine hero in WWII and was also noted as one of Mickey Mantle's preferred drinking partners when he played for the New York Yankees. .
