        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.

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.

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.

        'You Only Live Twice' (released through United Artists). Six original photographs for 'Cinema 66' magazine

      n.d. [25th August 1966], 25. Six original black and white photographs of Sean Connery as James Bond, taken on location in Japan during the filming of Ian Fleming's You Only Live Twice. Three photos capture a relaxed Connery in full Japanese costume, in between takes. The other three photos were taken on the actor's 36th birthday, which took place on set; one shows Connery in the daytime wearing a simple fisherman's costume whilst cutting a cake, and the remaing two show him at an evening party, with 'Happy Birthday' banners, dancing in a Kimono. Director Lewis Gilbert appears in two of the images, as does the Assistant Director Bill Cartlidge. Many thanks to John Gilbert, son of Lewis Gilbert, for assisting this cataloguer (Jon Gilbert) in person on 12th June 2012. Approx. dimensions 30 x 24cm. Fine condition. These are FILE images, taken for a French film magazine 'Cinema 66', and bear the Italian photographer's credit 'Copyright Pierluigi' to the verso. Each print also bears the distributor's stamp 'APIS - PARIS' and has an extensive text on the rear, typed in French. These were obtained when the archives of the publication were dispersed; it is most likely these are the only such prints, the negatives for which are likely no longer in existence. Quite possibly a unique set of images, from the vintage, Golden-era of the cinematic James Bond. Sold without copyright.

        International Times: Issues 1, 2 & 3

      [London: no publisher. 1966]. First. Newspaper. Three issues of the weekly English counterculture newspaper, each issue is folded once as issued. Folio. 12pp., 16pp., and 12pp. Near fine in illustrated wrappers with very light tanning, scattered tears at the extremities, and a couple of spots. An important and influential alternative press publication launched in London in the fall of 1966 by co-founders John Hopkins, a noted photographer and activist of the time, and Barry Miles, owner of the influential Indica Bookshop and Gallery, and the man who introduced Paul McCartney to some very special brownies. The bi-weekly publication focused on politics, art, music, movies, and culture. Issue One includes a poem by Adrian Mitchell, a photo by John Hopkins, a comic by Jeff Nuttall and, most notably, an article about a new exhibition at the Indica Gallery by artist Yoko Ono, one that John Lennon would attend and, well, you know the rest. Issue Two includes an article about Ezra Pound, an underground film festival supplement, and coverage of the International Times launch party, which apparently was a hell of a bash: an appearance by Paul McCartney, a performance by Pink Floyd, the viewing of William Burroughs's film Towers Open Fire, and a car in the middle of it all painted in psychedelic colors (apparently the party spoofed in Austin Powers was real and this was it). Issue Three includes a piece written by Burroughs, "The Invisible Generation," along with articles on Bertrand Russell, composer Morton Feldman, and on rubber fetishists by noted film critic Raymond Durgnat, entitled "Rubber with Violence." These newspapers are an amazing window into the life of Swinging Sixties London. .

        THE WINTER BEACH. Inscribed

      New York: William Morrow & Company Inc., 1966 Ogburn, Charlton Jr. THE WINTER BEACH. Inscribed. New York: William Morrow & Company, Inc., 1966. 8vo., 321pp with index. Publisher's 1/4 white-lettered brown cloth over blue paper covered boards. A very good example showing moderate use illustrated with maps & over forty superb line drawings by Marcia & Edward Norman, in a very good or better price intact pictorial dustwrapper. Neatly inscriped on the half title in black ink: "For Mary Vance Trent / With remembrances and all good / wishes, and the hope that she / will acquire as many happy / memories in Java as I did - / Charles Ogburn / March 1967". A very handsome book production; winner of the 1967 prize for natural history writing: The John Burroughs Medal.. "In late October, 1964, in a small bus equpped for camping [Ogburn] set out alone for upper Maine. From Mount Desert Island, he traveled southward with the season, pausing for intensive explorations of Cape Cod and Nantucket, of the Long Island beaches, and of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands off the Virginia shore, until he reached the outer banks of North Carolina. The result is a book of eloquence and vitality, of depth and beauty, and one to which the reader will return again and again." [from the jacket]. This is Ogburn's Classic & an important book in the Natural History genre. Here, he explores and ruminates upon the various Atlantic seacoasts always noting the austere beauty of the sea in winter. An extraordinary vibrant & well informed work, a mixture of scientific fact & sweeping epiphany. Not as well known as Henry Beton's 1928 clasic, The Outermost House but certainly on a par. A very uncommon inscribed presentation copy. Custom embossed dark blue cloth slipcase in very fine condition.. Signed by Author. First Edition.
