        PASSAGES 22-27 OF THE WAR

      Berkeley: Oyez 1966. [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.

        Excerpts from the Acid Test

      San Francisco: Sound City Productions. [1966]. The first recording by the Grateful Dead, who, a month earlier, had been known as The Warlocks. A 7" 33 RPM promotional record, labeled "For Radio Play Only, Not for Sale," with excerpts from the Acid Test album that Sound City was producing. The recording was made at the Sound City studio and was the seventh Acid Test -- communal events/happenings that were open to the public and at which LSD -- which was still legal in California at the time -- was distributed to the attendees. The Sound City Acid Test, because it took place in a recording studio, was more of a private event than earlier, or later, Acid Tests. It was also the last one Kesey himself participated in. He had been arrested for marijuana possession for the second time two weeks earlier, and had had to show up in disguise at the sixth Acid Test a week earlier at Longshoremen's Hall in San Francisco, in order to avoid reporters and the police. Within a week of the Sound City Acid Test, Kesey had left the country and gone into hiding in Mexico. The Grateful Dead had been the house band for the Acid Tests since they began in 1965, but under their earlier name of The Warlocks. By December 1965 they were starting to use their new name, and at the Acid Tests in January they were being billed as The Grateful Dead. This is the first time they were recorded as the Dead in a recording made for general release. The promo record was issued in March, 1966, and preceded the full length album released later that month. The only earlier recordings of the Grateful Dead are private ones that have made it into circulation as bootlegs; this, and the Acid Test album from which it was excerpted, were not only intended for public release but were also covered by "a couple of radio stations and a photographer for Look magazine" according to the Sound City press release, although the Look article apparently never appeared. "The purpose of the recording was to produce an album of unusual sounds, mental manipulations of the sometimes considered genius of Mr. Kesey and his cohorts during the actual happenings of a 'sugar' party. The results are different to say the least..." The Acid Test album itself is quite scarce; it was re-released in the 1980s. This promotional giveaway record is exceedingly uncommon, and a landmark for one of the most influential and long-lasting rock and roll bands to come out of the San Francisco Bay Area of the 1960s. The Grateful Dead went on to a 30-year career and became the most popular "jam band" of its time, triggering any number of similar jamming, touring bands in its wake, and capturing an essence of the hippie counterculture that lived on long after its historical moment had passed. Fine, in a plain white sleeve. . First Edition.

        Per Grazia Ricevuta

      (Milan: Giorgio Upiglio, 1966). (11)ff. From an edition of 120 signed copies, this is one of twenty reserved for friends of the author and publisher. A presentation copy inscribed to social-realist artist Ben Shahn, considered to be one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, and his wife: “For Ben and Bernarda / With joy and love / Leo.” A shaped picture book featuring eleven die-cut leaves with double-sided lithographs of stylized women in profile. The pages are cut to various widths so that the faces overlap in different ways as the pages are turned. The front and rear covers show only hair: the back of the women’s heads. Lionni is best-known as an illustrator of children’s books and a four-time Caldecott Honoree, but, with the support of Marinetti, he began his artistic career as a Futurist painter while living in Italy. He emigrated to the United States during World War II, where he achieved success and acclaim working in advertising and graphic design, most notably as art director for Time/Life magazines. He returned to Italy in the 1960s, and it is there that he created his first book for children. Quarter purple cloth with a matching chemise, and housed in the publisher’s gray card slipcase. Spine of slipcase and chemise slightly faded; the shaped book is in extremely fine condition.

        Joseph Solman

      New York: Crown Publishers, 1966. First Edition. Quarto (28cm). Green cloth boards lettered in red; dustjacket; 16pp text, 240 plates. Inscribed on front endpaper: "To my favorite American artist, Ben Shahn, from a fellow-artist, Joseph Solman," undated. From the library of Ben and Bernarda Bryson Shahn, with estate label tipped on to front pastedown.& & Solman (1909-2008) rose to prominence in the 1930s as a painter of semi-abstract cityscapes, and became associated with the group "The Ten," which included Adolph Gottlieb and Mark Rothko. In the forties he became the art critic for the communist journal Masses & Mainstream, which had always portrayed Shahn positively as "the most mature, consistent and satisfying of the American social painters." Both artists had moved in rather different directions by the mid 1950s, and it is gratifying to see that Solman still held Shahn in such high regard late in his career.
