        Report on the UFO Wave of 1947

      No Location: National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena [NICAP], 1967 [no location, but author's preface was written in Washington, D.C]: NICAP [uncredited][National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena], 1967. First Edition. Introduction by Dr. James E. McDonald. Quarto, white wraps imprinted in black. Non-traditionally paginated. Text, charts, case histories, listing of witnesses. Nearly flawless but for coffee stain at extreme corner of back cover and that corner tip of a number of pages, not affecting any text. A solid Very Good. Rare first edition of the absolutely remarkable 1967 research opus of ufologist Ted Bloecher, on the question of just what it was that started in June of 1947 - and why. Kenneth Arnold's famous Cascade Mountain sighting then got the headlines, but there was a crush of American sightings that summer, and more than 850 of them are in this dense and absorbing compendium. University of Arizona Senior Physicist for the Institute of Atmospheric Physics Dr. James McDonald, in his introduction, summarized what this meant: "What I see in all this as primarily important is the abundance of good case-material scattered through a dross of less reliable reports - an abundance that official agencies should have recognized by late 1947 as constituting a problem of the utmost scientific importance. No such recognition appears to have occurred" - and in so saying, echoed through to today's international bafflement about that very question. Bloecher himself, a Columbia drama/theater grad, chose to say the same with a more colorful quote from Charles Fort: "The little harlots will caper, and freaks will distract attention, and the clowns will break the rhythm of the whole with their buffooneries--but the solidity of the procession as a whole; the impressiveness of things that pass and pass, and keep on and keep on and keep on coming; the irresistibleness of things that neither threaten nor jeer nor defy, but arrange themselves in mass-formations that pass and pass and keep on passing. So, by the damned, I mean the excluded." Then, Bloecher makes the same point yet again, far more eloquently than either of the first two: he simply presents data, page after page of it; he presents "the things that pass" themselves, in the detail his research has afforded. No one can read this without feeling that recognition the absence of which McDonald lamented. Certainly one of the best researched and most seriously presented UFO reports in history; perhaps the single most so. So important, in fact, that Project 1947 has, with permission, recently reprinted the entire book - something which seldom occurs among serious UFO research reports. Originally published for Bloecher by NICAP, which he joined after his CSI group became defunct, though NICAP is not internally credited for the publication. A piece of history within the field. First Edition. L102

      Paris: YMCA Press, 1967. First edition. Very Good +. First edition in book form, preceded only by the Moscow Magazine printing. Perfect-bound in printed wraps, text in Russian. An attractive Very Good+ (or a little better) copy with minor toning and a faint bend to the covers. Otherwise, this copy is clean, unread and in excellent condition. Scarce on the market in any condition. Housed in custom clamshell. This book is the author's masterpiece and considered by many the finest novel to come out of Russia in the twentieth century. Started in 1928, Bulgakov burned the manuscript in 1930, only to re-write and revise it for the next ten years until his death. A socio-political satire oscillating between two realities, one where the Devil and his entourage take a flat in 1930s Russia and wreak havoc on society in a series of amusing escapades, the second in Pontius Pilot's Jerusalem, where he condemns Jesus, despite grave misgivings. A work of unique humor and profound insight, it builds upon the great 19th century Russian predecessors and is now a foundation of the modern Russian literary canon. Very Good +.

        Typed Letters Signed

      1967. Two typed letters signed from Watts to his agent, Henry Volkening. Watts discusses instructions for handling an article, an introduction he has prepared for a book on the counterculture, and plans for reprinting Watts's own title -- The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are. The first letter is on the stationery of the Gopher Campus Motor Lodge in Minneapolis and concerns the sale of the introduction for Book of the Love Generation and promotion for The Book itself: "I look forward with pleasant horror to seeing the kind of promotion he [Eugene Schwartz] will concoct. The RH [Random House] people think he is quite insane to take on a book of this kind." The second letter is written from the UK and concerns the dispositions of the people handling Watts's book. "Schwarz [sic] is going to promote under the headline `THIS BOOK WILL ABOLISH YOUR FEAR OF DEATH!' The things I have to live up to!" This letter bears the underlinings of the recipient and is folded for mailing. The first letter bears a few numbers in pencil; otherwise each letter is fine. Watts's title -- The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are -- was a synthesis of his writings up to that point, incorporating much eastern philosophy and much in the way of analysis and metaphor derived both from everyday experience, the psychedelic experience, and the new experimental therapies that were sweeping the West Coast at the time. Watts, whose early experiments with psychedelics were chronicled in his 1962 book The Joyous Cosmology: Adventures in the Chemistry of Consciousness, was a counterculture "superstar" by 1967, and these letters give an indication of how much he was in demand at the time.

      Tokyo: Shaken, 1967. Pages and boards lightly toned, else near fine in silver boards and the complete publisher's acetate jacket. Nice copy of a book that deserves more attention than it gets.. First Edition. Square quarto. A bleak assessment of sixties Japan by one of its foremost photographers. More understated than his Provoke counterparts, Tomatsu nonetheless offers a searing indictment of modern Japan gone awry: from the aftermath of a typhoon, to scarred walls and distressed roads, with an end section of protest and Okinawa images which are paradoxically the most optimistic images in the book, though I doubt this was Tomatsu's intent. Although not stated in the book, this copy comes from the library of noted Japanese photographer Kishin Shinoyama. (Aperture 94-101).

        Prayer to the Mystery

      [Boston: D. Sacilotto for Charles Lauriat's, 1967. Photogravure by Curtis, finely printed from the original plate, on wove paper watermarked "Tweedweave", by the master printmaker D. Sacilotto. A rare edition, not to be confused with later restrikes. A fine print, the beauty and quality of which rivals that of the original plates.(Small discreet collection stamp outside of plate mark on verso .) Very good condition apart from some mild rippling and light soiling in the top margin. A breath-taking image from "The North American Indian", the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on American Indians, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. As in the culture other Plains Indians, spirituality and religious ceremony were a central part of Lakota life. In addition to the important annual Sun Dance, the principal sacred rites included the Vision Quest, Making Relatives, Rite of Purification (Sweat Lodge), Keeping of the Soul, Preparing for Womanhood, and Throwing the Ball. The sacred pipe was an integral part these rites, which all centered around the veneration and invocation of the Great Mystery, Wakan Tanka, the ubiquitous supreme deity that created and governed the universe. The buffalo skull was also a fundamental element of many of these ceremonies. As the prime source of subsistence, buffalo were deemed sacred, and their skulls were frequently used as altars. "In supplication the pipe was always offered to the Mystery by holding it aloft. At the feet of the worshipper lies a buffalo-skull, symbolic of the spirit of the animal upon which the Indians were so dependent. The subject of the picture is Picket Pin, an Ogalala Sioux." (Curtis, List of Large Plates Supplementing Volume Three) Picket Pin was a frequent fixture of the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota, and several photographs of him were included in Henry and Jean Hamilton's 1971 publication 'The Sioux Of the Rosebud' as well as Paul Dyck's 'Brule, Sioux People of the Rosebud' of the same year. A band of the Lakota or Teton Sioux tribe, the Oglala inhabited the North American Plains and Prairies west of the Missouri River, and were primarily hunters. The original edition of Curtis' The North American Indian had 214 subscribers and Curtis himself handled the distribution. After Curtis declared bankruptcy, the booksellers Charles Lauriat's of Boston purchased the outstanding stock, and the edition from which this print comes was commissioned in order to complete a number of incomplete portfolios. According to information supplied by the printers, the edition was strictly limited with only 17 sets being produced. Edward Curtis was fascinated with the story of the American Indian from an early age, honing both his knowledge of them and his skill as a photographer on numerous scientific expeditions in the 1890s. With the enthusiastic backing of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword), Curtis evolved his plan for a comprehensive work that would illustrate his romantic vision of American Indian life before the disastrous impact of European contact. He obtained the patronage of J. Pierpont Morgan, whose support (and later, that of his son) enabled the project to go forward. What had originally been projected to take five or six years stretched to twenty-three, consumed $1,200,000 (a third in subsidy from the Morgans), and finally reached a conclusion in 1930, leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, he succeeded in accomplishing his grand design, and the set remains his monument. Cf. Naef & Goldschmidt The Truthful Lens 40; cf. Howes C-965.
