        When She Was Good.

      Random House, New York 1967 - First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the author on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket.

        Andy Warhol's Index Book

      Random House, New York 1967 - First edition. The stiff softcover issue. One of the best books the pop-art era. A highly inventive book with all of the pop-ups and inserts present and in fine condition but with the typical decay to the balloon which has stuck to the pages were it was originally inserted and with the string detached from the dodecahedron. Many of the photographs in the book were taken by a young Stephen Shore. A fresh and tight very near fine copy in silver wrappers. A much nicer than usual copy of this fragile book. (Roth 188-189: Parr & Badger v2, 144-145) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.

      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.

        Autograph letter

      - Two pages, 8vo., on personal stationery, signed "Ben Spock," to New York Mayor John Lindsay; New York, circa 1967; approximately 180 words; unpublished. "Dear Mayor Lindsay, In our hearing in the Federal Court of Appeals on the 7th, it became clear that the government had finally conceded that the Whitehall St. demonstration had nothing to do with the rest of the so-called conspiracy and that it was not intended to be anything but symbolic. In the words of the lawyers and the justices, the latter point was always proved by references to the fact that the Mayor of New York himself entered the negotiations to make sure there was no violence. In general, the intentions of the three justices indicated that they were doubtful about any conspiracy. So your generosity in testifying in Boston was crucial in removing Whitehall from the case. And the removal of Whitehall was important in throwing doubt on the whole idea of conspiracy. We owe a lot to you and will always be grateful." ---- According to "Time," December 1967 was billed as "Stop the Draft and End the War Week." The biggest turnout was in Manhattan, where a crowd of up to 2,000 surrounded the Whitehall Street induction center near city hall, and surged through the rest of Manhattan playing antidraft tag with twice as many police for four straight days. Greeted by freezing temperatures and the ominous rattle of police clubs on the barricades, the demonstrators never managed to reach the main door of the center. Police allowed Dr. Benjamin Spock, poet Allen Ginsberg and author Susan Sontag, among others, to sit-in symbolically on the cold stone steps, then just as symbolically arrested them. An important piece of protest Americana. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        A Model of Leptons

      American Physical Society, Physical Review Letters 1967 - FIRST EDITION of Steven Weinberg's model of the electroweak force, one of the essential components of the standard model of particle physics. Weinberg shared the 1979 Nobel Prize in Physics for his "contribution to the theory of the unified and weak electromagnetic interaction." "As Steven Weinberg tells the story, there was Isaac Newton's theory of gravity, 'intended to explain the movements of the celestial bodies and how such things as apples fall to the ground; and there was James Clerk Maxwell's account of electromagnetism as a way to explain light, radiation, magnetism, and the forces that operate between electrically charged particles.'" The quantum revolution "introduced two new forces, both operating at very short range, within the nucleus of the atom. The strong force holds the particles of the nucleus together and is very strong. The other is known as the weak force, which is responsible for radioactive decay. And so, until the 1960s there were four forces that needed to be reconciled: gravity, electromagnetism, the strong nuclear force, and the weak radioactive force" (Peter Watson, The Modern Mind). At Berkeley in 1967, "Weinberg produced a gauge theory that correctly predicted electromagnetic and weak nuclear forces. This was later to become known as the electroweak theory. In his paper, 'A model of leptons', he showed that although electromagnetism is much stronger than the weak force of everyday energies, the only way to devise a theory of the weak force is to include the electromagnetic force. Weinberg showed how what was seemingly impossible could be achieved and the forces could be unified through the interchange of particles in spite of the difference in their strengths. Abdus Salam had independently reached the same conclusions and what became known as the Weinberg-Salam model was a major advance on earlier models that had originally been applied to leptons. In 1979 Weinberg shared the Nobel Prize for Physics for this work with Salam and his old school friend Sheldon Glashow, who had extended the work that Weinberg and Salam had independently developed" (Chris Cooper, Physics). The discovery and description of the electroweak force has been confirmed experimentally and now is one of the essential elements of the "standard model" of particle physics. "By 1988, Weinberg's three-page paper in the Physical Review was the most frequently cited paper in elementary particle physics since the end of World War II" (Lightman, The Discoveries). Particle Physics: One Hundred Years of Discoveries; Brian Greene, The Elegant Universe. In: Physical Review Letters, Vol. 19, 1967, pp. 1264-66.

The book is straight, clean, tight, and has unblemished upper page edge stain. The book is graded near fine plus instead of fine only because there are a couple of small indentations on the back panel - there's no color loss or wear to the fabric of the binding. It is just as if an object with small feet rested on the back panel and caused those very slight indentations. The fine price intact dustjacket is clean, crisp, unfaded and has no tears or chips. Precedes the Kinsey Millhone alphabet series by 15 years. Many readers think this her best book.; Signed by Author 6722615 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        In a Piegan Lodge

      [Boston: D. Sacilotto for Charles Lauriat's 1967 - 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. "Little Plume with his son Yellow Kidney occupies the position of honor, the space at the rear opposite the entrance. The picture is full of suggestion of the various Indian activities. In a prominent place lie the ever-present pipe and its accessories on the tobacco cutting-board. From the lodge- poles hang the buffalo-skin shield, the long medicine-bundle, an eagle- wing fan, and a deerskin articles for accoutering the horse. The upper end of the rope is attached to the intersection of the lodge-poles, and in stormy weather the lower end is made fast to a stake near the centre of the floor space." (Curtis, List of Large Plates Supplementing Volume Six) A subgroup of the Blackfoot tribe, the Piegan are of Algonquin stock and inhabited the Plains and Prairies region of North America. They were the quintessential Plains Indians, and in his notes, Curtis described them as amiable people, who had a propensity for social formalities and were easy to work with. 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. 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.
