        Die Feuerland-Indianer. Die Ergebnisse meiner vier Forschungsreisen in den Jahren 1918 bis 1924, unternommen im Auftrage des Ministerio de Instruccion Publica de Chile. Mödling (near Vienna), Anthropos (vols. 1-2 & 3 part 2), St. Gabriel (vol. 3 part 1), 1931-1974. 3 volumes bound as 4, plus separate plates volumes for vols. 1 and 3 part 2. 4to.

      Routil, K. Saller, Verzeichnis der Gusinde-Arbeiten (1966), pp. 5-7. A massive scholarly report on the indigenous peoples of Tierra del Fuego, by the Catholic priest, ethnologist and anthropologist Martin Gusinde (1886-1969), who spent a total of 22 months as a participant observer among them during four visits in the years 1918 to 1924. He took part in the initiation rites of the Selk'nam (Onawo) and was inducted as a member. He also provides important information about the flora and fauna, though primarily in the context of their use by the indigenous peoples. Most of the illustrations show photographs. Gusinde also made audio recordings of the indigenous music and renders numerous examples here in Western musical notation. The series title-pages all read Die Feuerland Indianer, but the facing volume title-pages name the various indigenous groups: Die Selk'nam vom Leben und Denken eines Jägervolkes auf der grossen Feuerlandinsel; Die Yamana vom Leben und Denken der Wassernomaden am Kap Hoorn; Die Halakwulup vom Leben und Denken der Wassernomaden in West-Patagonien; and Anthropologie der Feuerland-Indianer. It remains the definitive study of these peoples, often based on direct observation of activities that have since fallen victim to encroaching Western culture, and all subsequent studies take Gusinde's work as their starting point. "Das Werk enthält völkerkundlich höchst wertvolle Abbildungen!" (Saller).With library (deaccession) stamps. With a tear repaired along the fold of 1 chomolithographed map (but the map is repeated in the other two volumes) and an occasional very minor blemish, but otherwise in fine condition. The definitive study of the indigenous peoples of Tierra del Fuego, with more than 600 illustrations, preserving a gold mine of cultural information that would otherwise have been lost forever.

        Apollo Programs Presentation to AC Electronics 5 January 1966

      Elmhurst 73, New York: Kollsman Instrument Corporation, 1966. First Edition. Comb. Good. 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.

      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.
