        With Revolvers Aimed…Finger Bowls

      San Francisco, CA: Beach Books, Texts & Documents, 1967. First Edition. Softcover. Near Fine. This is one of the rarest, most significant items among all our offerings, with no less than four inter-related associations. Published in 1967 by Mary Beach’s imprint & translated from the French by her, it is the poetry & prose-poetry of Claude Pelieu, her husband. Beach (1919-2006) &Pelieu (1934-2002) were a legendary artistic & literary couple, who met in 1962 & were creatively associated with William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti (whose City Lights Books was the distributor of this item), Charles & Pamela Plymell, & many others over a half-century career in Paris, New York & San Francisco. This First Edition copy is signed with a lengthy citation in French & dated 1970 on the title page by Claude Pelieu to Allen DeLoach, the previous owner of this copy who was at the forefront of the literary ferment on the Lower East Side of NYC during the 1960s. Deloach was the publisher of the literary journal Intrepid& is an important poet in his own right. This work is officially “Presented by William S. Burroughs.” & WSB has signed this copy next to his name, also on the title page. Pelieu’s text is preceded by “Two Counterscripts” of cut-up writing by WSB. Finally, Mary Beach has signed below her name with a whimsical citation (“The Buffalo Banana Splits”) on the title page. The provenance & associations here are incredibly rich—all four of these great figures knew & worked with each other, & all leave their imprint, directly or by reference, on this one item. In near-fine condition with only minor wear to front & back covers & blank spine & edges, interior very tight & crisp. Signed with French Citation by Claude Pelieu to Allen DeLoach, signed by William S. Burroughs, & signed with citation by Mary Beach.

        Barefoot in the Park

      New York: Random House. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY NEIL SIMON on the title page, of his first great hit- the play that would launch his career. The basis for the 1967 film starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. "The earliest of Simon's collaborations with director Mike Nichols (who won the Tony Award for Best Director), Barefoot in the Park was an instant hit with both the critics and the public, enjoying a run on Broadway that lasted for almost four years. Howard Taubman, reviewing the play for the New York Times, called it a 'bubbling, rib-tickling comedy' and claimed that Simon exhibited 'the dash of a highly skilled professional writer.' Norman Nadel, in the New York World-Telegram and The Sun, wrote that 'Simon's scintillating dialogue, the cast's spirited playing and Nichols' clear genius as a director of comedy turn this [play] into the merriest evening Broadway has enjoyed in years.' John McClain of the Journal-American summed up the response of many playgoers when he remarked that Barefoot in the Park was, quite simply, the funniest comedy he had ever seen" (Koprince, Understanding Neil Simon). Illustrated with photos of the original production starring Robert Redford. New York: Random House, 1964. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. Book fine, dust jacket with tiny chipping to spine ends; closed tear and light soiling to back panel. A very handsome copy.

        The Wishing Tree

      New York: Random House, 1967. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing in a Very Near Fine dust jacket (short closed tear at the top of the front panel's flap fold -- otherwise Fine with quite mild toning to the spine panel and tiny rubs to the spine extremities and outer panel corners); William Faulkner's debut (and only) children's book, a tale of a girl named Dulce and her friends, Alice, Dicky, and George who, together with a redheaded boy possessing magical powers, set out on Dulce's birthday to find the Wishing Tree. [Although bearing a copyright date of 1964, the first edition was not published until 1967.] Faulkner, who lacked much in the way of a formal education and was, in his own words, "just a farmer who likes to tell stories", was a tremendously important writer who did not become well-known until he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1949. Faulkner also twice won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, first for "A Fable" (1954) and then for his last novel, "The Reivers" (1962) The book is rather uncommon to the market and copies in a condition as nice as is this copy are scarce indeed. An altogether Near Fine or better copy of William Faulkner's only children's book in especially nice condition. SCARCE.

        Quantum Theory of Gravity. I. The Canonical Theory" (Physical Review 160 No. 5 pp. 1113-1148, 25 August 1967) and "Quantum Theory of Gravity. II. The Manifestly Covariant Theory. III. Applications of the Covariant Theory" (Physical Review 162, No. 5, pp. 1195-1238 and 1239-1256, 25 October 1967)

      - TWO ISSUE FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS of all three parts of Bryce DeWitt's paper on quantum gravity, including the introduction of the Wheeler-DeWitt equation. Quantum gravity attempts to unify quantum mechanics (which describes the behavior of electromagnetism, the weak interaction and the strong interaction) with general relativity (the theory of gravity). In these works, DeWitt, known as the father of quantum gravity, formed important calculations on quantum gravity highly controversial and important to modern theoretical physics. The Wheeler-DeWitt "equation expresses the expectation that the total energy of a closed universe vanishes" (Liebscher, Cosmology, 269). It is a "cosmic Schrodinger equation" that describes the whole universe - both atoms and galaxies - in a unified manner. Although controversial, the equation unifies deep properties of both quantum theory and general relativity. "The Wheeler-DeWitt equation is a functional differential equation on the space of three dimensional spatial metrics . It is ill defined in the general case, but very important in theoretical physics, especially in quantum gravity. The equation has the form of an operator acting on a wave functional, the functional reduces to a function in cosmology. Contrary to the general case, the Wheeler-DeWitt equation is well defined in mini-superspaces like the configuration space of cosmological theories" (Wikipedia). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: The American Physical Society. Volume 160 and 162 in original wraps. 4to (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). Professionally rebacked at the spine. Small stamp at the foot of the second paper. Near fine condition inside and out. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Cien Años de Soledad (One Hundred Years of Solitude)

      Buenos Aires: Editorial Sudamericana, 1967. First edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers. Inscribed and dated by the author on the dedication page. In near fine condition with some light creasing to the spine. Housed in a custom half morocco case.One Hundred Years of Solitude chronicles the life of Macondo, a fictional town based in part of Garcia Marquez's hometown of Aracataca, Columbia, and seven generations of the founding family, the Buendias. He creates a complex world with characters and events that display the full range of human experience. For the reader, the pleasure of the novel derives from its fast-paced narrative, humor, vivid characters, and fantasy elements. In this 'magic realism', the author combines imaginative flights of fancy with social realism to give us images of levitating priests, flying carpets, a four-year-long rainstorm, and a young woman ascending to heaven while folding sheets" (NYPL Books of the Century 31). At the conclusion of the 1970's this book was voted by the editors of The New York Times Book Review to be not only the best book published in the last ten years but the book most likely to still be read one hundred years from then.

        Andy Warhol's Index (Book)

      New York, NY: Random House, Inc., 1967. First Printing. Hardcover. Very Fine. The classic work of Pop Art in book form by Andy Warhol- silly, surreal & psychedelic. A statement by an enigma defined as much by the entourage at his Factory as by his own blank presence. This hardcover stated first printing contains all ten famous & fragile interior elements: An elaborate pop-up paper castle attached to two pages above the declaration "We're attacked constantly;" a bright red paper accordion attached to the intersection of a folded page; a colorful pop-up paper airplane attached between two pages; a paper disc with announcement & blurbs about Warhol's film Chelsea Girls, now loose but complete with loose spring & clear adhesive stickers; a folded paper geodesic structure with images of a nude, hairy-chested photographer, attached with black string to a circular sticker attached to a page; a 7" flexi-disc, paper with plastic grooved film on front side with image of Lou Reed, said to contain a recording by The Velvet Underground & Nico which may not have otherwise been released, & still attached between two pages with unbroken perforation & central hole still covered, therefore never played; a colorful two-overlay cut-out paper nose on the central section of a three-fold page; a pop-up paper Hunt's Tomato Paste can between two pages; a sheet of stamps still attached to a page with unbroken perforations & text above declaring "FOR A BIG SURPRISE!!! Tear out and place in a container of warm water." & a balloon between two pages which has decayed & fuses them, as apparently always the case after so long. With many images of Warhol & his associates including Gerard Malanga & "Superstar" Edie Sedgwick, along with members of the Velvet Underground including Reed, John Cale & Nico; an interview of Warhol with German interviewer's inquiries in gothic script & Warhol's sparse responses in a plain font; & more. With 3-D hologram image pasted to front board, no dust jacket as issued. A major collector's item, among the quintessential relics of the 1960s era. The extremely rare bag in which this first hardcover edition was originally released is not present, & there are two signatures of a previous owner- one horizontal on front endpaper with "return to" above & address below in thinner black felt marker with slight bleeding including onto the opposite & following page, & another vertical on first title page in regular black ink. Otherwise, this is a complete & exceptionally well-preserved item in all its delicate complexity. Pasted image on front board is slightly loose from age or possibly as issued, very mild rubbing to (mostly white portions) of front, back, edges & corners of boards, cloth spine with silver-gilt lettering perfectly mint. Interior very fine & complete with all elements as described above, with only very light browning to lighter edges, mild waving at front endpapers, title pages & (as always) the pages that contain the old balloon. Three small circular paper seals that originally enclosed the pages with the folded paper geodesic structure-on-a-string are broken, causing one very small gauge (the missing fragment is on the opposite half of the broken seal) & very minor waving.

When I saw that the leaders of Mapai alienated themselves from significant parts of these values-the values of justice, truth and similar ones-I do not see myself as part of it since the name ?Poel? or a different name does not mean anything to me. The name ?Zionist? was dear to me ... but when I realized that the Zionists in the Diaspora do not see an obligating relation between being a Zionist and making Aliyah to Israel, I understood that this name is void and I announced that I am not a Zionist.

        Autograph letter signed ("A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami").

      Calcutta, 13. XII. 1967.. 4to. 1 p.. To Nripendawath Banerjea, a follower in the village of Karpur: "[...] The Calcutta situation having come down to normal condition, I have now purchased my ticket for Japan (Tokyo) on my way to San Francisco & New York (U.S.A.). My disciples Sriman Holryutanawa [?] Brahmachary Sriman Ramanuja Brahmachary both will start for Delhi via Karpur after sending me off to Tokyo. They are starting on 15th night at 9/45 a.m. by 39 up [?] Janata Express reaching Karpur on the 16th night at 10 p.m. As they are new men, kindly receive them at the station. They can give lectures in Vaishnava cult and if possible you can arrange for their Kistrant lectures; otherwise they may go to Mathura after taking rest for one day or so. I hope this will find you in good health and I shall be glad to hear from you to my San Francisco address as follows: c/o ISKCON 518 Frederick Street San Francisco, California 94117 U.S.A. [...]". - Bhaktivedanta was born into a family of Vaishnavas, Hindus devoted to Vishnu and his incarnations including Krishna, and of which the Bhagavad Gita is a central text. After receiving a British education and following Gandhi for a time, Bhaktivedanta met his guru Bhaktisiddhanta Srasvati Thakura who charged him with spreading the word of the Hindu saint Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (an incarnation of Krishna) to the English-speaking world. For several decades Bhaktivedanta wrote, translated and published works in India. In 1965, he left for the U.S. where he struck a chord with the emerging counterculture movements and in 1966 he founded the "International Society for Krishna Consciousness" (ISKCON). He amassed a large number of followers in San Francisco, the epicenter of hippie culture, and they in turn took his message to England. It was there that ISKCON acquired its most notable adherent, the Beatles' George Harrison, which contributed much to the international awareness of Bhaktivedanta's ISKCON. - The "Calcutta situation" probably refers to the upheaval caused in the Bengali city (modern Kolkata) by militant communists referred to as Naxalites. In 1967 Bengal, interest in the Naxalbari movement gained ground amongst students and intellectuals. Violent uprisings ensued, including the Naxalite take-over of Calcutta's Jadavpur University, the assassination of authority figures and attacks on the police. The chaos lasted for several months before the police put down the insurrection. - Written on a self enclosed mailer. Folds, with slightly irregular edges from opening; two tiny holes affects several words. Signature is broad and bold. In good condition and very rare.

With engraved author's portrait, title-page printed in red and black with an allegorical engraving (hand coloured and highlighted with copper-coloured pigment), 2 engraved folding plans of the garden and 50 numbered engraved plates by Cosimo Mogalli after Tilli, illustrating species of plants, all coloured by a contemporary hand. Contemporary calf, richly gold-tooled spine and board-edges (rebacked with original backstrip laid down).

      Alden & Landis 723/159; Hunt 457; Johnston 351; Nissen, BBI 1967; Plesch, p. 436 (this copy). First and only edition of Tilli's illustrated catalogue of the plants in the botanical garden at Pisa, with all 50 plates coloured by a contemporary hand. "the long alphabetical list of plants in this volume is one of the most important for the early eighteenth century, and the volume memorializes the garden for all time" (Hunt). The catalogue, listing more than 4 thousand plants, contains species of plants from all over the world. The volume is often said to describe the plants in the garden founded in 1543 by Luca Ghini, but actually describes the definitive garden, after its second relocation during the years 1591-1596, constructed by the Flemish gardener Jodocus de Goethuysen, who served the Medici family in Florence. With the morocco bookplate of Allard Plesch on paste-down. Some occasional spots, mostly in the margins, a few leaves slightly browned, a tiny light blue stain in the foot margin of about 10 leaves.

At the conclusion of the 1970's this book was voted by the editors of The New York Times Book Review to be not only the best book published in the last ten years but the book most likely to still be read one hundred years from then.

        Andy Warhol Index (Book) Signed Limited Edition

      New York: Random House, 1967. Limited Edition . Hardcover. Near Fine. This is a signed, limited edition of Andy Warhol\'s classic artist book published by the Random House, NY in 1967. The book has been signed and numbered (68 of 365) by Andy Warhol on the front cover and he has also initialed all 10 multiples/objects. All objects (with the exception of the balloon which was removed before pages bound together) are present and in great shape. The accordion still squeaks! The book is bound in the original publisher\'s cloth-backed white printed boards with the front board featuring a silver paste down holographic montage. This is a notoriously fragile book and is prone to condition issues. This copy is no exception. I have classified the book as Near Fine+ with a split seam and tears to two pages that occurred when Andy Warhol opened the sealed pages to initial the mobile . As noted previously, the balloon was removed (fortunately) and only the masking tape that would hold the balloon remains (slight staining on reverse). There is also a tiny lower corner bump that appears to the front cover not affecting the contents that must have been there when Warhol signed and numbered the front cover based on the marker signature. Overall, this is a wonderful copy of a scarce and highly sought after book. Provenance: Edward Weston Editions. Cited in The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century by Andrew Roth.

Pair of Focus Mitts, each approximately 9.5" diameter, 1.5" thick, accompanied by images of Bruce Lee using these Focus Mitts and two signed typed letters of provenance, each one page, 8.5? x 11?, each dated September 2011.(1) ?My name is David Tadman and I am a writer and producer and Bruce Lee historian. This letter concerns a right and left-handed pair of brown leather Focus Mitts that were owned and used by Bruce Lee, the legendary martial arts action superstar. These Focus Mitts are documented in many photographs and martial arts pictorial magazines that have been circulated from 1967 until present day. Bruce Lee used these Focus Mitts as a training aid to develop his physicality within the martial arts. These very Focus Mitts were a staple in his training when practicing his punching and kicking techniques within his Jeet June Do training. I have written many books on Bruce Lee and am well qualified to opine on such items. I have, through photo investigation and research, identified this p

        [ARCHIVE] The Merriweather Post Pavilion of Music February, 1965 to July, 1967 [Columbia Maryland]

      [ Baltimore, MD ]: The Rouse Company, 1967. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good. First Edition. 8 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. Green buckram cloth, covers bowed outward. Various documents, forms bound in. Over 350 items total. Spine marked "Columbia Institutional Development | Pavilion of Music" Cloth. The day file of Wallace Hamilton, Director of Institutional Planning for the Rouse Company, containing over 350 pages of documents and correspondence related to the conception, creation and eventual opening of the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. The Rouse Company/Community Research and Development, Inc. was responsible for building a planned model community of 100,000 people in Columbia Maryland, of which this Pavilion of Music would occupy roughly 10 acres and provide the summer home of the National Symphony Orchestra when completed in 1967. The Music Pavilion was planned to be opened with the first set of buildings in the community. The set of documents taken as a whole are quite interesting because although they document the usual correspondence between major players in the project, there are also side notes that provide an "inside view" to what was happening. For instance, shortly after the announcement that the National Symphony would be playing there in the summers, a "Battle of the Symphonies" occured when the Baltimore Symphony (Rouse's home town symphony) started a real fight. Page 43 is a typed note from Hamilton noting the "inside story" behind it. The documents trace the initial conception of the idea, through the negotiations at length with the National Symphony, to starting to work on nuts and bolts related to Unions, concessions, contracts, and details. There is also considerable documentation of the "Wolf Trap Farm episode" which deals with a donation of 100 acres from Mrs. Jouett Shouse to the National Capital Parks with a stated intention that a 3500 seat outdoor concert hall, very similar to Merriweather, be built on the land. At the end of the "insider summary" Hamilton notes "In hindsight, it does seem that we should never have touched this issue with a ten foot pole. But at the time it seemed very urgent." While the archive of material doesn't contain blueprints or construction details, the financial and operational aspects of this scale project are evident both from a political and practical standpoint. Many of the memorandum are internal Rouse Company memorandum, and many of those have hand-written notes on them. It is interesting to note that the Pavillion was designed by Gehry, Walsh and O'Malley of Baltimore. The facility is still in operation today, and was recently ranked #4 in open air pavillions by Rolling Stone (Wikipedia). It's opening day was July 14, 1967. A fascinating read.
