      Open Skull Press 1966 - 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.

        The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, signed by both the author and his wife

      New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1966. First edition, sixth printing. Hardcover. This is the first edition, sixth printing of The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, signed by both Robert A. Heinlein and his wife, Virginia. Both signatures are inked in black on the title page, “Robert A. Heinlein” directly above his printed name at the upper right of the page, “Virginia Heinlein” in the same ink at the lower left of the page. This sixth printing is virtually identical to the first. “Sixth Impression” is noted on the title page verso with no further print history. The dust jacket differs only in a later issue price of “$6.95” replacing the first printing's “$5.95” at the upper front flap. Condition is impressive, both book and jacket near fine. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, bright, and tight with sharp corners. The only trivial hints of wear worth noting are a bit of wrinkling and shelf wear to the lower spine. The contents are notably crisp and clean. We find no spotting, no soiling, and no previous ownership marks. Minor age-toning to the otherwise clean page edges is the only testimony to age. The book feels unread. The dust jacket remains bright, clean, and complete, with trivial wear to the spine ends and corners. The jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress became the fourth and final of Heinlein's novels to win a Hugo Award (following 1956's Double Star, 1959's Starship Troopers, and 1961's Stranger in a Strange Land). Moon capped Heinlein's most remarkable and acclaimed decade as a speculative fiction writer and arguably shows him at the height of his creative and intellectual powers. Moon is a tale of social, political, and technological revolution in the form of rebellion of a former penal colony on the Moon. As with many of Heinlein's more developed novels, it is a compelling story deftly positing alternative conventions, both social and technological. Strong female characters, novel forms of family structure, and a sentient supercomputer secretly at the heart of the revolt helped make the story provocative in 1966 and keep it relevant today. Moon is also credited with popularizing the phrase “There ain't no such thing as a free lunch” (TANSTAAFL) used to colloquialize the concept of opportunity cost. Robert Anson Heinlein (1907-1988) was one of the “Big Three” of American science fiction writers, along with Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. A prolific writer with a career spanning half a century, Heinlein published more than 30 novels, along with numerous short stories and collections. Heinlein was lauded not just for individual stories, but also for weaving a coherent and often thought-provoking speculative future; Heinlein's “Future History” series was nominated for a Best All-Time Series Hugo Award in a very strong field in 1966, losing (along with fellow nominee The Lord of the Rings) to Asimov's Foundation series. Fittingly, Heinlein's name accompanies his imagination into space; an asteroid and a crater on Mars are named after him. Robert Heinlein's wife, Virginia “Ginny” Heinlein (1916-2003), was a chemist, biochemist, and engineer who inspired many of the strong, red-haired female characters in his novels. She met Robert during the Second World War when they both worked at the Naval Experimental Station in Philadelphia, she serving in the WAVES. They relocated to Los Angeles after WWII and married in 1948, remaining married until Robert's death in 1988, after which she edited collections of his correspondence and writings and authorized longer editions of several of his works.

        [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.

Designed and printed by John Dearstyne.

(Kathleen McCullough, Concrete Poetry: An Annotated International Bibliography (Troy, NY: Whitston Publishing Co., 1989), 592).The meaning of such poetry is "conceived by the poet and interpreted by the typographer" in a manner analogous "to the stage performance of a play." Poems printed from line cuts (type from photo compositor). The poet, Mary Ellen Solt (1920-2007), was well known for helping disseminate the art of concrete poetry, having begun to write it herself in the early 1960s. Important book. Pages French-fold.

        "The Use of Ascorbic Acid in Preventing and Treating Disease," Autograph Manuscript Signed, 26 individual sheets of lined paper, 4to, "Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine," Menlo Park, CA, n.d. but 1970s

      Pauling makes a clear argument for the use of Vitamin C to protect against the common cold. He offers a chronological review of research throughout this readable paper suggesting that Vitamin C research was ignored in favor of promoting sulfa based drugs and antibiotics. Pauling notes in the corner of the title page that the document is 2200 words long. The title page contains Pauling's signature as the author of the paper, "Linus Pauling" and in the title of the Pauling Institute. Fine condition throughout with paper clip rust marks on the title and final pages, written on every other line in a legible hand. "When pure L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) became available about forty years ago many studies were carried out to obtain information about its value in improving health and protecting against disease. It was soon shown that an intake of a few milligrams per day sufficed to prevent the development of scurvy in most people This fact is the basis for the value of the recommended allowance (the RDA now 45 mg for an adult) of the Food and Nutrition Board of the United States National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council...." Other scientists asked "what daily intake would lead to the best of health" and whether "large doses would be helpful in the treatment of existing diseases...For some time there was considerable use of large doses of ascorbic acid and of other vitamins in the treatment of patients. A change of attitude then occurred. It began to be said that a high intake of ascorbic acid had no value in the prevention or treatment of the common cold or any other disease...." He quotes the conclusion of this research and disagrees. "The statement that these claims have not withstood the test of time is wrong...the nutritional and medical authorities decided to ignore the evidence...." He explains that there was greater interest in "sulfa drugs and antibiotics, with their great effectiveness and reliability against infectious diseases contributed to the loss of interest in Vitamin C and other vitamins...." He offers some of his personal history studying Vitamin C beginning in 1966, referencing research papers and his 1970 book which summarized this research, "Vitamin C and the Common Cold." In the next section titled, "The Common Cold," Pauling reviews the research on Vitamin C's efficacy. "Many people have been misled by unjustified and unsupported statements that studies of ascorbic and the common cold have given negative results ...." After he presents examples from research papers he argues that tables were inaccurately interpreted. "Moreover, there was a serious flaw in the design of the study. The administration of tablets was stopped on average of three days after the onset of the colds, and the colds lasted an average of five days longer. We know that when a large intake of ascorbic acid is suddenly stopped the concentration in the blood drops for a few days to an abnormally low level...the abnormally low concentration of ascorbic acid decreases the effectiveness of the mechanisms of protection and may lead to exacerbation of the viral infection and the development of a secondary bacterial infection...." "The Action of Ascorbic Acid," is the title of the next section. Pauling's thesis in this section is that ascorbic acid stimulates and strengthens the body's "natural defense mechanisms." He references the relevant research papers and indicates that in a particular hospital some "surgical patients and intensive-care receive 6 to 10g of ascorbic acid per day...." He notes the source of this information is "personal communication" from the doctor. Pauling titles the final section, "Summary and Conclusion." "The evidence is now overwhelming that an increased intake of ascorbic acid provides a significant amount of protection against the common cold...the optimum daily intake...probably lies between 1g and 10g for most people (Pauling 1974)...Ascorbic acid has very low toxicity and few side effects...." Finally Pauling recommends that more "trials" should be done because Vitamin C's potential "is so great.".

        Abstract Expressionist Ceramics

      Irvine: University of California, Irvine, 1966. Near fine in photo-illustrated wrappers. Scarce.. First Edition, an edition of 1000 copies. Thin, square quarto. Slim exhibition catalogue accompanying a show at the University of California, Irvine that was on view from October 28th through November 27, 1966. Curated by John Coplans, the exhibit included work by Billy Al Bengston, Michael Frimkess, John Mason, Malcolm McClain, James Melchert, Ron Nagle, Manuel Neri, Kenneth Price, Henry Takemoto, and Peter Voulkos. Book design is credited to James Turrell. The exhibit was the first full-scale museum show to survey the revolutionary, expressionist work of mainly West Coast ceramists, led by Peter Voulkos. The exhibit linked these artist's break from traditional American craft pottery with the advancement of Abstract Expressionism. A pivotal catalogue.

        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.

        Big As Life [Signed]

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1966. First Printing of Doctorow's second novel and scarcest book, never reprinted and later orphaned by the author (his web site makes no mention of this title). 8vo: (6),218pp. Publisher's crimson cloth, spine stamped in gilt, top edge stained crimson, cream-colored typographic jacket printed in red, green, and black and priced $4.95. Signed by Doctorow on title page. About Fine (light soiling to spine and upper cover), square, tight and bright; Fine jacket, quite striking. "[T]wo giant humanoids from another time continuum appear in New York Harbor and, while they pose no immediate threat because of their incredible slowness, the city panics, the social order collapses and a newly formed government agency uses the crisis in ways that hint at totalitarianism. Though of stylistic interest for its vivid evocation of the different language registers of the characters, the novel is weakly structured and its various strands never quite merge into a coherent vision." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Fine- / Fine.
