        Hell's Angels

      Allen Lane / The Penguin Press, London 1967 - RARE FIRST UK EDITION in overall NEAR FINE condition. HARDCOVER copy with unclipped DUSTJACKET. A true rarity. The first UK edition is a lot scarcer than the first US edition, both which were published in 1967 (copyright page of this first UK edition notes: "Copyright Hunter S. Thompson 1966, 1967. First published in the USA by Random House, 1966. First published in Great Britain, 1967"). Apparently, according to well-respected American rare book dealer Ken Lopez, "Thompson at one point thought that the British edition had only been issued in paperback, as he had never seen a hardcover copy of it". Hell's Angels was Hunter S. Thompson's first published book. It was the book that launched his career as a writer. Front cover blurb: "The California motorcycle gang. The real life Wild Ones". From inner front flap of dustjacket (in full): "The Angels are a Californian motor-cycle gang that rides the highways in packs. They may be high on beer, wine, marijuana or LSD. They are armed and they are provoked easily. It is sometimes difficult to say whether their sexual activities are orgy or gang rape. The Press and television wait for them to descend on and terrorize some resort town and the tourists gather to watch. Hunter Thompson rode with the Hell's Angels and lived uneasily with them until one day they grew bored with him and casually beat him up. He discounts conventional explanations of youthful rebellion: 'The Hell's Angels are a logical product of the culture that now claims to be shocked at their existence - They are acting out the daydreams of millions of losers.' This is not so much a sociological study as an encounter with one of the most anti-social groups in society. It is an encounter that forces one to take sides. The Hell's Angels are 'the first wave of a future that nothing in our history has prepared us to cope with'. They have rejected every rule and standard of society just as they have been defeated by its competition. If they have to lose we may all have to lose for, as Dr Johnson said, 'He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of being a man'." Printed in Great Britain by Latimer Trend & Co., Plymouth. Bound in original black boards with bright silver skeleton-head motorbike-rider design to front board, backed by pale blue cloth spine with bright red title lettering & publisher's logo in black at foot, top edge of book block grey, plain grey endpapers, in publisher's unclipped black-and-silver pictorial dustjacket, retaining the original published price of "42s. net" on inner front flap. With author's b&w photograph to rear panel of dustjacket. Mild overall slight rubbing to dustjacket, a bare trace of edgewear to dustjacket, very faint ghosting of (removed) price-sticker over original printed price on inner front flap, otherwise overall a very nice clean tight solid hardcover copy. The book itself is FINE with no flaws. The dustjacket is now protected in removable clear Bro-dart cover. 281pp. A remarkably superb collectible copy of the extremely scarce first UK edition. RARE. Size: 23 x 14cm [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Personal Letters and Ephemera from the Collection of Percival Brundage, Director of the US Office of Management and Budget under Eisenhower

      Washington, DC: Original Correspondence. Ephemera. Single Sheet. Very Good +. Over 27 Pieces. Housed in appropriate document folder. An amazing archive of the personal letters of former Director of the US Office of Management and Budget, Percival Brundage. The collection includes more than 27 individual pieces, including four letters signed by Dwight Eisenhower, five letters signed by Mamie Eisenhower and others signed by President Richard Nixon and President Gerald Ford. One of the stand-outs is the 1967 letter from future President Ford discussing the "many mistakes in Vietnam". An insider look from one of the highly trusted advisors of President Dwight Eisenhower. Director of the United States Office of Management and Budget from April, 1956 to March, 1958. The Office of Management and Budget produces and oversees the President's Budget that is handed to Congress. The budget is the main vehicle by which the President of the United States shapes his policies on a day to day basis by identifying where funds are spent by the United States Congress. The Director answers to the President, the Vice-President and the White House Chief of Staff only. As Budget Director, Percy spearheaded the Eisenhower Administration's campaign to get the government out of private industry. By the end of his first six months as Director, Brundage had cut 492 of 19,321 government businesses that he claimed interfered with private enterprise. Throughout the two years he spent in office, he championed the Eisenhower budget of 1958 only to be met with stiff opposition from all sides, including his own. By the end of 1957, Senator Harry Byrd of Virginia, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee called on President Eisenhower to replace Brundage "with someone dedicated to the economy instead of... finding new ways to spend more money." A graduate of Harvard University, Brundage was a brilliant statistician and an exceptional accountant who had achieved Partner status at Price, Waterhouse, but the taxes of political office seemed a bit too much. He remained a close advisor to President Eisenhower as well as to JFK, LBJ, Nixon and Ford. CONTENT OF THE ARCHIVE: NOTE: All letters in Very Good to Near Fine condition unless otherwise noted. TLS initialed by Dwight Eisenhower dated June 9, 1960 in regards to Percival Brundage serving on IKE's "Mutual Security" Advsiors Team.

He suffered from Crohn's disease, had at least seven heart attacks and a major stroke during a Cabinet meeting. On Official White House stationery with the Seal of the President of the United States.

"Just talked to my sister and she is driving to Belleair Shores today in her new Cadillac. It is so icy here and I am supposed to go to Washington to unveil the Thomas E. Stephens portrait of Ike at the new National Repulican Center..." Mamie is obviously referring to the wedding of her granddaughter, Susan Eisenhower to A.H. Bradshaw on January 9, 1971.

On Official "Congress of the United States - Office of the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives" stationery. Two fold-marks. TLS signed by Senator Charles H. Percy addressed to Mr. Percival Flack Brundage, dated June 12, 1967. Charles Harting Percy was the United States Senator from Illinois from 1967 to 1985. He served as Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations from 1981 to 1985. This letter, written by Percy in the first six months of office as a Senator, is another in the Brundage papers that is obviously in response to Percy providing guidance on the order of operations in Vietnam. In part, "I share your view that the Vietnam War must be de-escalated, but unfortunately I find very little support for this position within our party. As a matter of fact, my emphasis on a negotiated settlement is not well received by Republicans." Percy closes the letter with a stark, prophetical statement that "prospect is dim" for a peace in Vietnam. Percy also adds the note, "I would greatly appreciate your help in getting Democratic Co-Sponsors for a housing bill" in his own hand at the close of the letter. In 1967, the year of this letter, Percy introduced a bill to Congress to stimulate production of low-cost housing for low-income families. The plan, which would include home-ownership, was the first of it's kind put before Congress. On Official United States Senate stationery.

The letter is referring to the storming of the American Embassy after Robert Reynolds, a Master-Sargeant in the US Army, was acquited of murdering a Chinese man whom he said had looked at his wife. Reynolds was formally charged by the Republic of China, but was found innocent of the charges. Upon public announcement of this, the "mob" that Tong refers to, stormed the American Embassy, destroying property and wounding several Embassy employees. On Official "Chinese Embassy" stationery. (with original cover) The collection also includes Percy Brundage's personal invitation to the Inauguration of President Dwight Eisenhower. Other items include four personal invitations to the White House, including one to a dinner honoring His Excellency, the President of Pakistan (Zulfikar Ali Bhutto) and Begum Bhutto. One Queen Elizabeth II coronation button and three B/W photographs of Percy Brundage engaged in business are present. One of the photographs is of Brundage's swearing in ceremony in the presence of President Eisenhower. Another photograph is of Brundage sitting with a Eisenhower and others during what would appear to be a budget meeting.

        12 Photographs from the New Year's Wail / New Year's Whale Concert, with additional related photographs

      [San Francisco] 1967 - A collection of snapshots taken at the New Year's Wail concert on January 1, 1967 at the Panhandle near Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, with some accompanying images. Various sizes. Condition is overall good with tape remnants or shadows mostly in the margins, but the images mostly pretty clear. Several are captioned.The show, entitled "The New Year's Wail / New Year's Whale" was organized by the Hells Angels as a thank you, and a celebration of the Haight Ashbury community for "crowdfunding" the bail money for their member Chocolate George after a traffic arrest. The Diggers helped to promote the event which featured Big Brother and The Grateful Dead (as well as of Orkustra with Bobby Beausoleil, later of the Manson Family). The bands played on a flatbed truck, and the photographer was clearly very close to the bands, probably on the truck itself. Of the dozen candid photographs of the concert, all but one (the only color image, of some Hells Angels and their bikes in the crowd) feature the bands: Joplin appears in at least eight of them, and Jerry Garcia in three, with other shots of other band members in various combinations. Also accompanied by several other images: two color images of Joplin singing, date stamped in May 1967, have damage to the margins, although the images of Joplin are largely clear. Also with a color photo of a psychedelically-decorated hippie crash pad, as well as another 14 images of several young men, presumably the photographer and his friends: one with a motorcycle, several in military garb sitting on a dock smoking pot, one on a ship's deck, and several overseas in Thailand and the Phillipines.

A bright, most handsome example of the uncommon 1968 first edition (entry B5 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999" which is also cited on page 141 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", pages 198-201 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and page 227 of "From Fair to Fine 3") limited to two thousand, two hundred and thirteen unnumbered copies showing a minute margin of age-toning along the top edge of the front cover. The publisher's fragile, age-toned glassine wrapper is present though chipped, torn, and missing a significant portion of the lower rear panel. A white adhesive label reading "American Distributor: / Wittenborn and Company / 1018 Madison Ave., New York, N.Y. 10021" is affixed to the verso of the final page. It has been priced accordingly.

        Planet of the Apes. Final Revised Screenplay

      Apjac Productions for Twentieth Century-Fox 1967 - 144 pages, Mimeographed on "eye-rest green" paper, brad-bound in mimeographed orange wrappers. "Final Revised Screenplay", dated on the cover April 18, 1967, with two blue revised pages dated 4/20 and 4/24. The cover is also marked with the legend "Confidential. Please do not reveal the contents of this script." A rare copy of this late revision, complete with the surprise ending, which was kept secret and not included in most copies of the script. Rod Serling (The Twilight Zone) and Michael Wilson received credit for the screenplay which Serling adapted from Pierre Boulle's novel. Wilson had been been blacklisted in the 1950s for being a communist and was only belatedly credited for some of his most important work (e.g. Friendly Persuasion (1956), and The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), like Planet of the Apes adapted from a Pierre Boulle novel. Some pen marks on the first page, fine. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
