        Hand-painted sign commemorating the first commercial transpolar flight

      1968 - (DUSTIN, Frederick G.). Airport sign: “Dustin Transpolar Flight.” [Rio de Janeiro: 1968]. Original narrow metal hand-painted sign, white lettering on a red ground, measuring 5 inches by 4-1/2 feet. $1500.Unique artifact, documenting the historic first commercial round-the-world flight, tracking longitudinally across the two poles and touching down on all seven continents, including Antarctica.“Frederick G. Dustin was employed as a fuel engineer on the second Byrd Antarctic expedition (1933-35). As with many of the men involved with this expedition, Dustin went on to participate in other important explorations. In 1968 Modern Air Transport chartered a Convair 990A jet aircraft called Polar Byrd I to fly round-the-world on an exotic world tour. The flight carried 60 passengers and eight crew, and [while it] set no speed records, [it] did land on November 22, 1968 on the 10,000-foot ice runway at McMurdo Sound, Antarctica (U.S. Navy) for refueling” (WingNet). Dustin was the president of the Byrd Polar Center in Boston at the time, and encouraged the Center to sponsor the flight. The Center’s letter of solicitation touted this as “the first commercial flight ever to cross both poles and touch down on all continents,” and warned that “frankly, you will endure some discomfort, and may even face some danger.” “Polar Byrd I” was captained by Hal Neff, former pilot of “Air Force One.” Among the passengers was a man named Bellafontaine, who along with 59 others, paid $10,000 to participate in this historic transpolar flight. One stop on the return itinerary was Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the reception committee had erected a hand-painted welcoming sign, reading “Dustin Transpolar Flight.” Bellafontaine became the custodian of this sign.Only a few minor paint-chips. Fine condition.

        Carl Andre - Robert Barry - Douglas Huebler - Joseph Kosuth - Sol Lewitt - Robert Morris - Lawrence Weiner. December 1968.

      New York. Siegelaub / Wendler. 1968. First edition 1000 copies. 28 x 22 cm. 185 Blatt. OKarton. Schnitt etwas nachgedunkelt, Fußschnitt leicht fleckig. Der weiße Umschlag insgesamt etwas gedunkelt. Vorsätze mit Abklatsch von Tesafilmstreifen. Der einfache transparente Kunststoffumschlag alt, aber wohl nicht das Original! Insgesamt aber noch gutes Exemplar des sehr empfindlichen Bandes. Das sogenannte \"Xerox Book\" oder richtiger \"Photocopy Book\" basiert auf der Idee Seth Siegelaubs, eine komplette Ausstellung in Buchform zu kuratieren. Das heißt, der Katalog ist nicht nur die Informationsquelle zur Ausstellung, sondern gleichzeitig auch die Ausstellung selber. Die ursprüngliche Idee den Katalog auch Kunstwerk sein zu lassen, indem alle Beiträge kopiert werden sollten, musste auf Grund der hohen Kosten verworfen werden. Die Künstler kopierten die Arbeiten, das Buch erschien dann in 1000 Exemplaren in Offsetdruck. Jeder der 7 Künstler steuerte einen konzeptuellen Beitrag, bestehend aus jeweils 25 Seiten, bei. Bei Carl Andre ist dies ein in seinem Inneren helles schwarzes Quadrat, das sich Seite um Seite um je eines vermehrt bis 25, Robert Barry addiert eine gepunktete Seite bei 25 Seiten auf 1 Million Punkte, Sol Lewit variiert 24 Blöcke mit je 16 verschieden linierten Quadraten und so weiter. Siegelaub erläuterte seine Intentionen in einem Interview mit Hans Obrist: \"The \"Xerox book\" - I now would prefer to call it the \"Photocopy book\", so that no one gets the mistaken impression that the project has something to do with XEROX - was perhaps one of the most interesting because it was the first where I proposed a series of \"requirements\" for the project, concerning the use of a standard size paper and the amount of pages the \"container\" within wich the artist was asked to work\". Eines der wichtigsten - oder vielleicht das wichtigste - frühe Künstlerbuch der Konzeptkunst, heute sehr selten. Die 2015 in Kooperation mit dem Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam als Reprint in 1600 Exemplaren erschienene zweite Auflage in identischer Ausstattung ist beigegeben. [Vgl.

        The Mountains. Illustrated with ten drawings by John Piper, engraved on the wood by Reynolds Stone, with a descriptive note by John Piper.

      New York: Chilmark Press 1968. 4to, (ii), 42, (6) pages. Original quarter cloth, morocco backstrip with title in gilt, paper-covered boards illustrated with a wood engraving, top edge gilt, slipcase. As new. Limited to 110 special copies in a total edition of 350, signed by the author, artist and engraver, with an extra set of the 10 engravings tipped in and bound thus. (Carter, The Rampant Lions Press: 34). Handset in 18pt Zapf Palatino on mould made paper from Wookey Hole Mill. The third Clover Hill Edition. “Just after the second world war, John Piper and Reynolds Stone, both enthusiasts of nineteenth-century topographical guide-books, decided to produce a modern equivalent, to illustrate the mountains of Snowdonia. They used wood-engraving both as a reproductive process, so that the pictures could be printed together with the text, and as creative interpretations of the drawings, which in several cases Piper did directly on the blocks. We were eager to print these magnificent engravings, and as the Carters and the Stones are close cousins, negotiations were simplified. Douglas Cleverdon persuaded the Welsh poet R.S. Thomas to write some rich poetic prose to accompany them.” (Rampant Lions Press). The collaboration of three remarkably talented artists, Thomas (poet), Piper (artist) and Stone (engraver and calligrapher), designed and printed by two of Englands finest printers, Will and Sebastian Carter.

      Rupert Hart-Davis, London 1968 - Octavo, boards. First edition. "Papal domination of Europe has slowed progress and a dystopian medievalism has lasted into the twentieth century" - Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, pp. 313-4. ". a striking work of the imagination." - Burgess, Ninety-nine Novels: The Best in English since 1939, p. 104. With his second book, Roberts came fully into his own as a writer. PAVANE superbly depicts an alternate history in which -- Elizabeth I having been assassinated, the Spanish Armada victorious and no Protestant rise of capitalism in the offing -- a technologically backward England survives under the sway of the Catholic Church Militant. The individual stories are moody, eloquent, elegiac and thoroughly convincing." - John Clute, SFE (online). Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-910. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 58. Survey of Science Fiction Literature IV, pp. 1660-64. Slight spine lean, else a fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#142589) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Cybernetic Serendipity. The computer and the arts

      London - New York: Studio International, , 1968. Brossura, custodia (wrappers, slip-case). Molto Buono (Very Good). Studio International special issue. It was first published to coincide with an exhibition entitled "Cybernetic Serendipity" dealing broadly with the demonstration of how man can use the computer and new technology to extend his creativity and inventiveness, held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Nash House, The Mall, London, August 2-October 20, 1968. The exhibition was organized by Jasia Reichardt in collaboration with Mark Dowson (technological adviser) and Peter Schmidt (musical adviser). The exhibition and the cover of the catalogue were designed by Franciszka Themerson. With 7 original posters in cardboard box (cm 51x76; 76x51). 4to. pp. 104 + posters. Molto Buono (Very Good). . Cybernetic Serendipity fu una fondamentale mostra d'arte cibernetica a cura di Jasia Reichardt, organizzata presso l'Institute of Contemporary Arts di Londra nel 1968 con più di 40.000 visitatori. Una parte della mostra era incentrata sugli algoritmi e sui dispositivi per la produzione di musica. Alcune delle opere esposte non erano altro che opuscoli che descrivevano gli algoritmi, mentre altri mostravano notazioni musicali prodotte dai computer. I dispositivi realizzavano effetti musicali e riproducevano nastri di suoni emessi dai computer. Peter Zinovieff prestò parte delle sue attrezzature di modo che i visitatori potevano cantare o fischiettare una melodia in un microfono mentre il suo equipaggiamento improvvisava un pezzo basato su tali melodie. Un'altra parte descriveva progetti informatici come l'auto-distruttivo Five screens with computer di Gustav Metzger, un progetto per un nuovo ospedale, una struttura programmata al computer e una coreografia. Le macchine e gli impianti erano una parte molto rilevante della mostra. Gordon Pask produsse una collezione di grandi cellulari con parti interattive che permettavano agli spettatori di unirsi alla conversazione. Molti macchinari formavano ambienti cinetici o visualizzavano immagini in movimento. Bruce Lacey contribuì con robot radiocomandati e un gufo sensibile alla luce. Nam June Paik fu rappresentato dal suo Robot K-456 e televisori con immagini distorte. Jean Tinguely fornì due dei suoi macchinari per dipingere. Wen-Ying Tsai presentò le sue interattive sculture cibernetiche fatte di tondini di acciaio inox, luce stroboscopica e audio in controllo feedback. Diversi artisti esposero macchinari che disegnavano motivi che i visitatori potevano portarsi via o coinvolgevano il pubblico in giochi. Un'altra sezione esplorava la capacità dei computer di produrre testi: diversi programmi produssero Haiku, storie per bambini e saggi. Furono anche proiettati film prodotti da computer. Anche la grafica computerizzata trovò spazio, con immagini prodotte su un oscilloscopio a raggi catodici e plotter digitali. C'era una varietà di manifesti e grafica che dimostravano la potenza dei computer nel fare calcoli complessi (e apparentemente casuali). Altri grafici mostrarono la simulazione di un Mondrian e gli iconici quadrati a spirale decrescenti che poi furono riprodotti sul manifesto della mostra e sulla copertina del catalogo.
