        Handbill for the Human Be-In

      San Francisco: Bindwood Press. (1967). Handbill announcing "A Gathering of the Tribes for a Human Be-In" and listing some of the participants -- Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Jerry Rubin, Timothy Leary, Dick Gregory, "All SF Rock Groups," etc. along with the pertinent details: "Saturday Jan 14 1-5 P.M., Free, Polo Field, Golden Gate Park." The Human Be-In was conceived as another of the unstructured celebrations of the San Francisco hippie community, in the tradition of the earlier Trips Festival. The presence of a roster of superstar figures was intended to help draw out the largest possible crowd, but the star of the event was intended to be the crowd itself. Indeed, the speakers could not be heard much of the time but no one much cared. The bands played in the afternoon, and included Quicksilver Messenger Service, the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe and the Fish, and others. After the sound system broke down at one point, it was announced that the generator would hereafter be guarded by the Hell's Angels. The event went smoothly: tens of thousands of people showed up, many smoking pot or tripping on LSD, but the police kept a low profile and didn't arrest any of the people openly smoking pot; a priest from the San Francisco Zen Temple meditated on stage throughout the day. At the end of the day, Gary Snyder blew a conch shell -- a traditional Japanese Buddhist ritual instrument -- and Allen Ginsberg led a Buddhist chant, at which point the crowd drifted apart. The Human Be-In became one of the milestone events of the emerging counterculture and, in retrospect, one of its high points. It succeeded for a time in bridging the gap between the San Francisco hippie culture and the Berkeley-based radical political movement, finding some common ground for the two -- a joining of two disparate, and sometimes divergent, movements that has had repercussions to the present day: today, cultural experimentation and alternative lifestyles go hand in hand with political critique, a trend that was considerably more uncommon prior to this occasion. There were several variant designs for the poster: this one was designed by Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelley and Michael Bowen and was the original poster design -- an image of an Indian swami with a third eye added by Mouse. The image was also used as the cover for issue number 5 of the Oracle, the San Francisco underground newspaper, which took on a decidedly more psychedelic look with this number, timed to coincide with the festival. Reportedly, Mouse wasn't especially happy with the design: he felt that the image of the Hindu holy man had been foisted on him, which helps explain the number of different posters for the event. Purple and gray on white. 8-1/2" x 11". Fine. (Jerry Rubin's last name is misspelled as "Ruben.") Scarce and ephemeral; it would seem that few of these have survived.

Virtually all of the cards and letters are heavily painted, as are most of the envelopes. Several of the envelopes are made from busily patterned wrapping paper, some of which are additionally embellished, some not. Minor wear at the edges, else fine. .

        [Poster]: Mechanischer Kopf (Der Geist Unserer Zeit) [Mechanical Head - The Spirit of Our Time]. Moderna Museet Stockholm 21okt.-19 nov.1967

      Stockholm: Moderna Museet Stockholm. 1967. Black and white poster (halftone print). Professionally framed. Measuring approximately 30" x 40". Fine. Large poster advertisement for the 1967 exhibition at the Modern Museum in Stockholm: the first full-scale retrospective of Raoul Hausmann's artwork.Hausmann, one of the key founders of the Berlin Dada movement, instigated several important firsts in the modern art movement. In 1917-1918 he invented the optophonetic poem and photomontage, and published the first Dada Manifesto; his pioneering work in photography and numerous writings (manifestos and institutional critiques) had a profound influence on the European Avant-Garde throughout the 1930s-1940s; and in 1958 he helped to found the Fluxus movement.The poster reproduces his most famous work: "Mechanischer Kopf (Der Geist Unserer Zeit)," circa 1919-1920. Constructed from a hairdresser's wig-making dummy, the piece has various measuring devices attached: a ruler, a pocket watch mechanism, a typewriter, some camera segments, and a crocodile wallet. Interpreted by critics as a Marxist reversal of Hegel, "a head whose thoughts are materially determined by objects literally fixed to it," Hausmann himself likened it to the average German of the day, who has "no more capabilities than those which chance has glued on the outside of his skull; his brain remains empty."Hausmann also played an important role in the Neo-Dada and Fluxus movements inspired by the famous 1958 Dada exhibition in Frankfurt-Dusseldorf, which included many of his artworks. By the time of his 1967 retrospective, Hausmann had formed close personal and working relationships with the leading figures of both intertwined movements, including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Yves Klein, and fluxus-impresario George Maciunas, who had assumed the leadership role in Fluxus "happenings."Maciunas included Hausmann's works in the earliest happenings or "Fluxfests," and had initially referred to the movement as "neo-dadaism." In a letter to Maciunas from 1962, Hausmann discouraged the use of the term: "I note with much pleasure what you said about German neodadaists---but I think even the Americans should not use the term "neodadaism" because neo means nothing and -ism is old-fashioned. Why not simply "Fluxus"? It seems to me much better, because it's new, and dada is historic." A very scarce, beautifully printed copy of the Stockholm poster, well-preserved in a clean wood and glass frame. .

        The Ticket That Exploded

      New York: Grove Press, Inc.. (1967). First. First American edition. Fine in a very slightly age-toned, else fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by Burroughs to Ruth Ford: "For Ruth Ford, William S. Burroughs." Ford, the Mississippi-born sister of surrealist author Charles Henri Ford, was a beautiful model and actress, first in Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre, and later in films and theater. Notably, she starred on Broadway in Jean Paul Sartre's No Exit in 1946, under the direction of John Huston (the last of five Broadway plays he directed). Her apartment in the Dakota became a salon for authors such as Tennessee Williams, Edward Albee, Terrence McNally, and Truman Capote. A chance encounter between Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents in her Manhattan living room led to their collaboration, with her Dakota-neighbor Leonard Bernstein, on West Side Story. Similarly, she brought together Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight to create the celebrated stories of Eloise, the little girl who lived at the Plaza.Ford is well known also for her long friendship with William Faulkner, which began with her dating his brother Dean in the early 1930s. Faulkner was openly smitten with Ford for many years. He wrote his experimental 1951 title Requiem for a Nun, a sequel to his early and controversial novel Sanctuary, with her in mind. He further declared, to the consternation of his agent and publisher, that it was her dramatic property (Requiem for a Nun was a mixture of stage play and novel). Stage production of the title stalled for years, partly because Faulkner's experimental drama did not lend itself to live theatre, and partly because the producers were unsure of Ford's suitability. Faulkner was adamant that it was her dramatic property, and in 1959 she adapted the play herself and starred in its London production opposite her second husband, Zachary Scott. Her stage version received enthusiastic reviews in both London and New York, but did not fare so well with audiences and closed after a short run on Broadway. Ford continued to act on both stage and screen well into the 1980s. She passed away in 2009 at the age of 98. A nice association. .

A disjointed and playful pastiche, Index (Book) has the impromptu feel of a project thrown together as a lark. Most of its pages are filed with high-contrast, snapshot-style black-and-white photographs taken by.Billy Name. As if to puncture this glam bubble, Index (Book) is also filled with an ingratiating array of gimmicks. Among them: a pop-up illustration of a castle under attack (with photos of Warhol & Co. collaged into its windows), a red pleated accordion tucked into a gatefold, another gatefold with Andy's nose in profile sliced into a series of colored flaps, a balloon, a Velvets record, a Chelsea Girls ad on a spring, and a Hunt's tomato past can that pops up between two head shots of International Velvet."

        Two Monumental Hook-Work Parade Banners: Chairman Mao Reviewing The Great Army of the Cultural Revolution

      Cultural Revolution Committee of Urumqi / Xinjiang Army Divisioni 1967/8, Urumqi, XinJiang Uyghur Autonomous Region - Both banners bear the inscription "Chairman Mao Reviewing the Great Army of the Cultural Revolution," and depict the August, 1966 mass rally at Tiananmen Gate, where more than 10 million Red Guards from all over China converged to express their solidarity with Mao and his second-in-command, Lin Biao. Additional text on the lower banner reads "Long Live Chairman Mao for ten thousand years" and "Sailing in the ocean requires a helmsman" -- both quotes from Lin Biao. The agencies responsible for the banners are identified in lower right of each: "Cultural Revolution Committee of Xinjiang Army Division, 1968" (upper banner) and "Cultural Revolution Committee of Urumqi, 1967" (lower). The presence of Biao (the figure to the right of Mao, holding the Little Red Book in the top banner) is of particular interest. Biao, compiler of The Quotations of Chairman Mao (popularly known as the "Little Red Book") and coiner of the phrase "Maoism," was probably more responsible than any other figure for creating the cult of personality around Mao, particularly at the time of the Cultural Revolution. He quickly ascended Party ranks, and was widely seen as Mao's obvious successor. But in 1971, Biao was exposed in the process of an apparent coup attempt (the details of the event have never been made public). He died in an airplane crash attempting to leave China, and from this point forward was officially condemned as a traitor by the Communist Party; any record of his achievements on behalf of the Revolution was expunged from the official record, and any positive image of Biao would have been confiscated and destroyed as a matter of course -- suggesting either that these banners left China prior to 1971, or that they remained out of sight until some later date. The second possibility is plausible given whence the banners issued - both were created by Red Guard branches in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, an extremely remote province in China's northwest corner (and for many years the center of a militant independence movement for Uyghur and other Turkic minorities). In any case, the precise manner in which these banners left China will likely never be known; they surfaced at a New England antiques show in 2011. Two extraordinary hand-crafted parade banners, ca. 110" x 84" (9 feet x 7 feet), one slightly smaller. Each entirely composed of hook-work with colored yarns on white muslin backing. Slight age-toning and soil; a few threads loose but no significant losses; Near Fine condition overall. Folded and stored in original velvet draw-string carrying bags, as found.

        Report on the UFO Wave of 1947

      National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena [NICAP], No Location 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. Spot-soiling to both covers, primarily the back, which may be cleanable; bit of wear from having been read, probably once. 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.

        Derriere Le Miroir

      France: Maeght Editeur, 1967. Hardcover. Ex-Library. 40 p. plus 4 p. 39 cm. 7 colour lithographs by MirÛ, including 2 diptychs, 1 triptych. Non-coloured MirÛ lithographs interspersed with the text. 25 pictures depict other works by MirÛ. Card cover, unbound signatures. Library stamp on front cover. Slightly bumped top-right corner. "Chroniques" section is rough along the top. Derriere le Miroir was associated with some of the best-known artists of the 20th century. Despite presenting himself in a very orderly, upstanding manner, MirÛ's work belies a sense of playfulness with its bright colours and bold shapes. Though Joan MirÛ eschewed group membership, he was well connected with the surrealist community, and his works are still considered very valuable today.
