        Alchemy and the Occult - A Catalogue of Books and Manuscripts From the Collection of Paul and Mary Mellon Given to the Yale University Library - Volumes 1 and 2 (PRINTED BOOKS)

      New Haven: Yale University Press, 1968. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Two Volumes - Volume One: Printed Books 1472-1623. Volume Two: Printed Books 1624-1790. Limited to 500 sets. Hardcovers. Large quartos. Bound in gray cloth over navy boards with leather spine labels. 582 total pages between the two volumes. The collection here described came into being through an interest in alchemical literature inspired by the work of the late Professor C.G. Jung and by the example of his collection of books and manuscripts on alchemy and related subjects in his home near Zurich in Switzerland. Many authors are represented here: Ramon Lull, Henry Cornelius Agrippa, Horapollon, Ptolemy, Roger Bacon, Galen, John Dee, Reginald Scot, Paracelsus, Michael Maier, Basil Valentine, Robert Fludd, Jacob Boehme, Elias Ashmole, Eugenius Philalethes, Thomas Taylor, and many more. A total of 160 books are described in great detail. The forms of description comprise the following parts: Author, Short Title, Title Transcription, Collation, Contents, Illustrations, Decorations, Typography, Paper, Binding, Provenance, References, and Notes. Illustrations of title pages are included for all books listed, plus other illustrations (frontispieces, vignettes, devices, etc.). The descriptions in this catalogue are compiled in the belief that bibliography is a subject in its own right, not deriving its sanction from any other discipline, whether it be textual criticism, biological nomenclature, or history of science. That it can and does and will continue to throw light on such fields is indisputable; that it must be taken account of by any serious student of these and other subjects is beyond question; yet it has its own object of study, its own generalizations, its own relevancies. And another thing that should seriously be taken into account: no matter what one has been led to believe…..not all bibliographical information is freely available on the internet! Some rubbing and wear to leather spine labels with a little loss near edges, otherwise both volumes in about fine condition. Issued without dust jackets. Slipcase shows some shelf wear, a few white speck marks and has a short tear to the bottom which is minor.

        The Double Helix: A Personal Account of the Discovery of the Structure of DNA.

      New York: Atheneum, 1968. First edition of the author's ground breaking work regarding the discovery of DNA for which the author, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1962. Signed by both James Watson and Francis Crick on the title page. Octavo, original blue cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Exceptionally rare signed by both Watson and Crick. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Science seldom proceeds in the straightforward logical manner imagined by outsiders," writes James Watson in The Double Helix, his account of his codiscovery (along with Francis Crick) of the structure of DNA. Watson and Crick won Nobel Prizes for their work, and their names are memorized by biology students around the world. But as in all of history, the real story behind the deceptively simple outcome was messy, intense, and sometimes truly hilarious. To preserve the "real" story for the world, James Watson attempted to record his first impressions as soon after the events of 1951-1953 as possible, with all their unpleasant realities and "spirit of adventure" intact.

        The Opening of the Western-Eye.

      Bangkok: The Social Science Association Press of Thailand, 1968. First edition in English of the Dalai Lama?s first book on Buddhist philosophy. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the author on the title page in Tibetan "with prayers." A near fine copy in a excellent dust jacket that is lightly rubbed. Rare, especially signed. The Opening the Eye of the Western Eye is a succinct, thorough overview of the doctrines of Buddhism as they have been practiced for a thousand years in Tibet. The Dalai Lama here discusses the need for religious practice and the importance of kindness and compassion. Originally written for Tibetan lay people, this was the Dalai Lama's first book on Buddhist philosophy to appear in English. Written for both Tibetan and Western readers, Opening the Eye of New Awareness is the Dalai Lama's first religious work. It is not an edited transcript of public lectures, but is His Holliness' own summation of Buddhist doctrine and practice. Completed in 1963, just four years after his escape from Tibet and four years after completing his religious education, it is a work of consummate scholarship by a twenty-seven year-old geshe, wise beyond his years.

Levin who had conducted proxy fights against MGM. in 1968 Kirk Kekorian made a takeover offer for MGM, and although strongly opposed at first, Bronfman ended up selling to Kerkorian.

        10 (= 6+1+3) eigenh. Briefe, Brief- und Postkarten.

      Radolfzell, Hemmenhofen und o. O., 1950 bis 1968. - Zusammen 14 SS. auf 10 Bll. Gr.-4to und qu.-8vo. An seinen Biographen Otto Conzelmann, den Herausgeber zahlreicher Dix betreffender Werke, vielfach in Ausstellungs- bzw. Veröffentlichungsfragen. A) "[.] Falls L[utz] & M[aier] die Kassler Kollektion nicht will / Ich weiß nicht, ob man im Osten Wert drauf legt dortliegendes Ost-Geld zu nehmen, ich glaube daß ihnen Devisen lieber sind. Dr. Passarge [d. i. Walter P., Leiter der Kunsthalle Mannheim] dem ich wegen der Kasseler Kollektion schrieb, meint er wolle 1951 eine große Schau der ganzen Entwicklung zeigen. Das wäre also / I. die Nationalgalerie / II. Moritzburg in Halle und III. Mannheim. Das gibt auch wieder eine komplizierte Organisationsarbeit [.]" (18. I. 1950). - B) "[.] Wir haben keine Neujahrsfreude gehabt, denn Nelly ist schwer erkrankt und mußte am Sylvester nach Singen ins Krankenhaus fortgebracht werden [und verstarb zwei Tage darauf]. Dr. Löffler schrieb mir daß er gern das Buch von Melichar = 'Überwindung des Modernismus' [hätte]. Da Sie es wahrscheinlich in Stuttgart besser kaufen können wäre ich Ihnen dankbar wenn Sie es ihm schickten [.]" (7. I. 1955). - C) Mit der Bitte um Hilfe bei der Bearbeitung eines Tonband-Interviews, das er anläßlich seiner Ausstellung "Der Krieg" Franz Larese, dem Mitinhaber der veranstaltenden Erker-Galerie in St. Gallen gegeben hatte: "[.] Anbei finden Sie eine Rederei von mir [.] Sie ist natürlich unter viel Alkohol entstanden. Nun will Larese, das in der Buchausgabe der Kriegsradierungen abdrucken. Sagen Sie, ist das nicht rechtes Gequatsche ich meine zu nackt? [.] Wenn Sie etwas damit machen können, streichen Sie lustig so viel Sie wollen, besonders die vielen Wiederholungen und das Besoffene Deutsch [.]" (8. I. 1963). - C) Über den ungarischen Maler Rudolf Diener-Dénes: "[.] Die Bilder von Diener erinnern mich an den Stil meiner Arbeiten in den frühen 20iger Jahren. Ich habe auch damals versucht die Wirklichkeit in präzisen Formen u. in wenigen Farben schwarz weiß braun grau auszudrücken. Aber auch das tragischgroteske gemischt mit dem erotischen deutet auf eine innere Verwandtschaft mit mir hin [.]" (27. II. 1964). - D) "[.] Ich malte ein Aquarell Roussillon in Totalansicht von links. Das Blatt ist längst verkauft weiß nicht mehr, wer es hat. 'Vaucluse' ist aus der Erinnerung in Dresden auf den Stein gezeichnet [.]" (6. X. 1964). - E) Über seinen bevorstehenden 75. Geburtstag: "[.] Ich muß am 20. Nov. nach Dresden u. Gera, denke daß ich am 28. zurück bin. Am 2. Dez. ist hier ein Empfang im Hause, aber am 1. Dez ein feines Essen mit nahen Freunden in der Alten Rheinmühle in Büsingen. Sie sind dazu eingeladen[.] Wir kommen am 7. November nach Stuttgart wo am 8. ein Essen bei Herrn Kießinger stattfindet, darauf Ausstellungseröffnung um 18 Uhr und dann Premiere des russischen Staatszirkus [.]" (12. X. 1966). - F) Verärgert über einen Zeitungsbericht zur Gesamtschau seiner Werke in Hamburg: "[.] Saumäßig, so eine Kritik, ob das eine Neonazischweinerei ist? man weiß nie, von woher es wieder losgeht da ja Nazismus keine Parteiangelegenheit ist sondern eine Charaktereigenschaft der Deutschen (vielen Deutschen) [.]" (16. I. 1967). - G) Den Versand einiger Werke betreffend: "[.] Wenn Sie nicht alle Fotos schicken (auch die welche Sie von mir haben) geht es überhaupt nicht. Sie schreiben z. B. 'Felsen auf Sardinien' da gibt es mindestens 3 Stück oder mehr. Ich bin gerade beim Malen (Gott sei Dank wieder mal) und kann das Zeug nicht machen [.]" (12. IX. 1967). - H: "[.] Besten Dank für Ihren Brief. Jetzt weiß ich nun ganz genau daß ich niemals in England ausstellen darf [.]" (22. X. 1968). - Meist gelocht.

        The Double Helix: A Personal Account of the Discovery of the Structure of DNA

      New York: Atheneum, 1968. First edition, second printing, published one month after the first of the author's ground breaking work regarding the discovery of DNA for which the author, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1962. Octavo, original blue cloth. Signed by James D. Watson on the title page. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with a small chip to the rear panel. "Science seldom proceeds in the straightforward logical manner imagined by outsiders," writes James Watson in The Double Helix, his account of his codiscovery (along with Francis Crick) of the structure of DNA. Watson and Crick won Nobel Prizes for their work, and their names are memorized by biology students around the world. But as in all of history, the real story behind the deceptively simple outcome was messy, intense, and sometimes truly hilarious. To preserve the "real" story for the world, James Watson attempted to record his first impressions as soon after the events of 1951-1953 as possible, with all their unpleasant realities and "spirit of adventure" intact.

        IN A NARROW GRAVE Essays on Texas

      Austin: Encino Press, 1968. First edition. No binding. Very good to near fine set. Rare advance long galley proofs of the "skycrapers" edition. This set of the galleys is inscribed by the publisher William Witliff on the first sheet "First page proof / July 22, 1968 / Wm Witliff." Certainly the most scarce McMurtry item. When numerous typographical errors were discovered in the text of this first printing, the most notable, of some 60 corrections, was the word "skycrapers" in place of the intended "skyscrapers", line 13 of page 105. It was with this discovery Witliff decided to scrap the entire edition and print a corrected one. Reportedly only a dozen copies of this printing escaped destruction (noted bookman Peter Howard declared, " informal census of copies I have either examined or know of through reliable information locates approximately twenty-two copies of the "skycrapers edition..." Housed in a custom-made cloth box with a plastic see-through top, with spine label.

        The Double Helix: A Personal Account of the Discovery of the Structure of DNA.

      Atheneum, New York 1968 - First edition of the author's ground breaking work regarding the discovery of DNA. Octavo, original blue cloth. Signed by James D. Watson on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a tiny closed tear. A superior example. "Science seldom proceeds in the straightforward logical manner imagined by outsiders," writes James Watson in The Double Helix, his account of his codiscovery (along with Francis Crick) of the structure of DNA. Watson and Crick won Nobel Prizes for their work, and their names are memorized by biology students around the world. But as in all of history, the real story behind the deceptively simple outcome was messy, intense, and sometimes truly hilarious. To preserve the "real" story for the world, James Watson attempted to record his first impressions as soon after the events of 1951-1953 as possible, with all their unpleasant realities and "spirit of adventure" intact.

        The Voyage: And Other Versions Of Poems By Baudelaire

      Faber 1968 - 4to, pp. 60. Original black boards, lettered in gilt on spine. Illustrated dustwrapper. Two brochures for the Sidney Nolan Trust laid in. Small bookplate of Kenneth Clark to front pastedown, later gift inscription to ffep., chipping to head and closed tear to foot of spine, some marking to rear panel. 24 illustrations, 8 in colour, all by Sidney Nolan. First trade edition, INSCRIBED BY SIDNEY NOLAN TO KENNETH CLARK: 'K + Jane, Love from Sidney + Cynthia 1968'. With the bookplate of Kenneth Clark to front pastedown. Kenneth Clark has long been credited with bringing Australia's foremost artist Sidney Nolan [1917-1992] to worldwide attention. Nolan had produced his famous series of paintings of Ned Kelly in the 1940s, but it was his landscapes that first captivated Clark, who first travelled to Australia in 1949, and who happened to be writing his book Landscape Into Art (1949) during the voyage. Nolan's work chimed perfectly both with Clark's current preoccupations and with his general artistic taste. Clark bought his first Nolan painting during this visit, and would go on to acquire a large collection. Nolan travelled to England in 1950, settling in London the following year, and the two remained lifelong friends until Clark's death in 1983. (Kenneth Clark's wife was christened Elizabeth, but renamed herself Jane while at Oxford -- hence the 'J' of the inscription.) A wonderful association copy, bearing witness to an important and enduring artistic friendship. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Collection of Color Transparency Slides of Jim Morrison]

      [New York], 1968. Near fine. Eight Kodak color transparency slides. 2" square with image areas 1 3/8" x 15/16" approx. Date stamped "MAR 68" to border of verso. Notated in ink outside of image area with names, numbers. Clean, well preserved. Near fine. High-resolution jpgs of all images provided. A collection of presumably unpublished images of Jim Morrison at New York's Fillmore East, March 22, 1968. Three of Morrison on stage (two pictured) with five intimate close-ups likely captured backstage. A particularly poignant shot has him leaning into the microphone with a light projection behind. This two-night, four-show, Fillmore engagement produced what are often considered some of the best shows of the band's career. Though we've been unable to determine the pho- tographer, they are of clear professional caliber and bear a certain resemblance to the work of legendary rock-and-roll photographer Elliott Landy. A striking group of original vintage slides.

      New York: Grove Press, 1968. Hardcover. Near Fine. One of the 26 numbered and signed copies, the true first edition. Very near fine brown cloth over off-white paper boards. No wear or soiling to the fragile boards, corners completely sharp. No soiling to the easily soiled cloth spine, lettering completely clear, spine maybe just a touch lighter than the rest of the 1/4 cloth (see last photo and zoom in). There is a little fold in the cloth on the top of the spine that is not a bump. See photos. Contents very near fine, no foxing, no markings of any kind in the book. Sewn binding tight. The deep gutter-edges of several gatherings toned (1/4 inch) by the glue that was used in the binding. The best copy of an impossibly rare book. Many, including Harold Bloom, have argued that Endgame is the greatest dramatic work of the twentieth century. Beckett thought it his best. Because of the severe limitation (26 copies), the book will eventually become a Black Tulip of twentieth century literature. No copies at auction in the last decade. I can think of only one twentieth-century highspot issued with a smaller limitation: Winnie the Pooh, which had only 20 signed in the extra limited. By contrast, there were 50 signed copies of Hart Crane's The Bridge, 100 of Joyce's Ulysses, 170 of Lawrence's Seven Pillars of Wisdom. I hesitate to end.

        Cancer Ward].

      Il Saggiatore Milano 1968 - Octavo (18.5 x 12 cm). 320 pp; some pages slightly browned. Publisher's printed wrappers; very lightly soiled. Fine copy of the first edition of the literary masterpiece, which together with Solzhenitsyn's earlier works brought him the Nobel Prize in 1970. "Solzhenitsyn based Cancer Ward on his own experiences of being treated for cancer in Tashkent after he had been freed from the Gulag. The work was written between 1963 and 1967 and Solzhenitsyn had originally hoped that it would be published in the Soviet Union. Novyi Mir accepted the work and printed off galley proofs for the first eight chapters in 1967, but in the end it proved too controversial. Cancer Ward was widely circulated in samizdat and eventually copies reached the West where editions were issued by several different publishers. There are significant textual differences between the different samizdat editions. The Milanese edition of Cancer Ward contains just over half the novel; a second volume was envisaged but never printed. Despite being incomplete it is still considered to be the first publication. The author is listed as "Anonymous", presumably in order to protect Solzhenitsyn from any possible repercussions. The publishing information in the book states that it was printed in February 1968, but it likely came out in March or April. Very rare." (Matthew). T.

[Sacramento, California, January 16, 1968]. To Bertha Glasscock. On lined yellow paper, cut from a larger sheet. Fine condition.Governor Reagan's secretary, Cathy Davis, has penned the date above Reagan's letter (""1/16/68"") which she then typed, and then drew a diagonal line in red ink across the text, indicating she had typed it for his signature.In full, ""To Bertha Glasscock. Dear Mrs. Glasscock. I've just had word from Al Crandall and so discovered your where abouts. I was happy to learn of your pleasant life in Texas and it was good to reminisce about those Des Moines days. I wish you the very best & who knows maybe some day Texas-Calif business will make it possible for our paths to cross. Best Regards Ronald Reagan""In December 1932, six months after he graduated from Eureka College, then 21-year-old Ronald Reagan got a job as a sports announcer at radio station WOC in Davenport, Iowa. When WOC and WHO in Des Moines, Iowa merged in April 1933, he moved to Des Moines as chief radio announcer. He broadcasted Chicago Cubs home games based on telegraph reports from Wrigley Field. In March 1937, while with the Cubs during spring training in California, Reagan made a screen test for Warner Bros. who signed him to a movie contract in April. The rest, as they say, is history.Governor of California since 1967, seven months after he wrote this letter, Reagan's name was placed in nomination for President at the 1968 Republican National Convention. On the first ballot, with 667 needed to win, he received 182 votes and finished third behind Nixon (692) and Rockefeller (277). "
