        ARCHIGRAM EIGHT [8]: Popular Pak Issue

      (London): (Archigram), (1968). First Edition. 8vo. Original stapled folding envelope holding nineteen sheets: fourteen 8" by 5.5" approx.; five 16" by 5.5" (folded in half, as issued). Envelope very good, with an inch-long tear at head of spine, some light creases and touches of soil. One staple separated. Sheets about near fine to fine: bright, crisp, and clean. Complete. Issue of this important, beautifully designed little magazine of radical architecture published on the occasion of the 1968 Milan Triennale. The young Archigram group operated from a utopian futurist, Buckminster Fuller-inspired view, with technology at the forefront. As Mike Webb put it, Archigram originated "because we felt at the time that very exciting things were happening [in architecture], as indeed they were," particularly in the US -- but London still lacked an avant garde, and felt "empty and lifeless" [CLIP STAMP FOLD, p. 27]. ARCHIGRAM EIGHT is a series of loose sheets dealing with "the problem of direct personal provision: of comfort, facility, satisfaction, enquiry..." Each sheet is marked within several categories including metamorphosis, nomad, indeterminacy, hard(ware)/soft(ware), emancipation, exchange/response, and comfort. An important record of avant-garde architecture (and radical '60s optimism), with gorgeous graphic design.

        Zap Comix Number 1

      San Francisco: Apex Novelties, 1968. 1st edition, 1st printing (25 cents, etc.). A fine, copy with no flaws, marks, creases, or repair. Slabbed and graded by CGC, as very fine "VF 8.0." Fogel's Guide says $6,800 in this grade. Zap 1, hailed as the first underground comix, the book that lit the fuse for a thousand of its descendants. And though there were a dozen or so forerunners, each produced randomly with no connection to one another, that are now seen as, and collected under the heading of, underground comix, Zap 1 inaugurated the genre. Graded and slabbed by Certified Guaranty Company (CGC), the preferred, the fussiest, and the most prestigious comic grading service, and all other such services, with pretensions to authority, should be viewed as dubious, and this is a drag to say, but ungraded comics are more dangerous than an IRA built exclusively with Beanie Babies, as unslabbed comics can't be resold, and your view of condition means nothing to a future buyer, and CGC may flippantly downgrade one for a blemish you didn't notice, or pardoned as a trifle. Fine [8.0].

Wainwright (1963), Reynolds v. Sims (1964), and Miranda v. Arizona (1966). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        [Archive]: Vietnam Letters

      New York, Germany, Vietnam, 1968. Very Good. A collection of 27 letters to Joann Mosby from two different men serving overseas during the Vietnam War. The letters are near fine with very good or better envelopes with tears from opening.A small archive of letters sent to Joann Mosby from two men serving during the Vietnam War, PFC Larry Powell and PFC Andrew Johnson. The first group of letters from Lowell are written while he's stationed in Germany with Co. A 97th Signal Battalion as a telephone installer which he says "I sure don't know what they sent me over here for they need a telephone installer like another hole in the head. I have it pretty easy right now." He later said they changed his post to a switchboard operator while he says "isn't that a laugh." Lowell often writes about finding Europe boring and asking for transfers. "I'm thinking about putting in for a transfer. I'll get sent to Vietnam if I do. It can't get any worse than Europe. This place just isn't what's happening!" Although Larry and Joann never met he does sign all his letters "love ya" and some pages include drawings of hearts. In late 1966 Larry was promoted to Sergeant and his letters bear the new title in his address. He is shipped to Vietnam "Nom" in early 1967. In a letter before leaving Europe he writes to Joann saying she probably won't want to talk to him anymore because he'll probably be "shipped home in a pine box." Although he says this he continues to write to Joann from Vietnam. He writes "I am in Nam now. I am at Bien Hoe about 22 miles from Saigon." He continues, "there is a big battle going on about forty miles from here. Operation Eden Junction or something like that." Later he says he'll "be in Vietnam about 363 days altogether." In his last letter he tells Joann "the VC haven't been giving us any rest lately." Joann also received letters from PFC Andrew Johnson, who often signs his letters as "Andy," who was stationed "about 30 northwest of Saigon the name of the town is Chi Chi." In his early letters he write about jungle training which he writes "is to show us how the Viet Cong go about killing us, etc." He says of the Viet Cong, "when you hear about all these tricks you get pretty afraid. Because they are getting smarter every day." In one letter Johnson writes, "Vietnam is far from paradise...[it] is a very hot country. Today it was 110 and will soon be 130." Johnson tells Joann about girls he's interested in, seeing a Bob Hope USO show, and adjusting to life in Vietnam. He's wary about having to go to the "Iron Triangle" region as many people he works with have been sent there. "There is a good chance of me going to the "Iron Triangle" or the "Ho Bo Woods." The Ho Bo Woods is just as dangerous as the Iron Triangle. But if I go there I will feel safe because all of you back there are hoping that I make it home safe." Towards the end of his letters Johnson discusses Operation Junction City, which he was involved in. It was an "82-day military operation" and one of the largest airborne operations of the war.A modest but interesting collection of letters showing a variety of soldier perspectives during the Vietnam War.

      New York: Farrar , Straus and Giroux, 1968. First edition. Hardcover. A fine crisp copy in a fine crisp dust jacket, almost like new. Signed by the author and dated Nov 19, 1989. Wolfe, through this book, is credited with exposing, and participating in a new, growing literary style called New Journalism. Wolfe presents an as-if-firsthand account of the experiences of Ken Kesey and his band of Merry Pranksters, who traveled across the country in a colorfully painted school bus named Further. Kesey and the Pranksters became famous for their use of LSD and other psychedelic drugs in hopes of achieving intersubjectivity. The book chronicles the Acid Tests (parties in which LSD-laced Kool-Aid was used to obtain a communal trip), the groups encounters with the (in)famous figures of the time, including famous authors, Hells Angels, and The Grateful Dead, and it also describes Kesey's exile to Mexico and his arrests.
