        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].

        Warren E. Burger Supreme Court Signed Photograph.

      1968 - Large photograph from the 1970's of the Burger Court, signed by each justice. The justices are Warren Burger, William Rehnquist, William J. Brennan, Thurgood Marshall, Sandra Day O'Connor, Lewis Franklin Powell, Jr., John Paul Stevens, Harry Blackmun and Byron White. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 18 inches by 20 inches. Rare and desirable. The Warren Court is best known for its landmark decisions, which outlawed segregation in public schools and transformed many areas of American law, especially regarding the rights of the accused, ending public school-sponsored prayers, and requiring "one man-one vote" rules of apportionment of election districts. He made the Supreme Court a power center on a more even basis with Congress and the Presidency, especially through four landmark decisions: Brown v. Board of Education (1954), Gideon v. Wainwright (1963), Reynolds v. Sims (1964), and Miranda v. Arizona (1966). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Yitzhak Rabin

      , February 19, 1968. February 19, 1968. Autograph Letter Signed "Yitzhak Rabin" and "YR", in Hebrew, dated February 19, 1968, London, England, on Royal Garden Hotel stationery, 5" X 8", two pages front and verso. In part, "Dear Nehemiah, Today we end our stay in Europe and go directly to Washington...Actually, tomorrow begins the second course of our lives, as is often said in the Israel Defense Forces...We came to you immediately after leaving Israel. It is not easy to leave the country for a long period of time...We had the privilege of being in France during the visit by the President of Iraq, 'Arif. It was rather amusing to see the French wooing that shady Iraqi. But it was even more amusing to see how, after all that obvious and well-publicized wooing, they didn't get anything real from him...In England...I got into trouble by being willing to give lectures. The..."Magbit" as it is known here, was very efficient and made me work hard. In four days and nights, one of which was the Sabboth, I gave seven speeches, attended six cocktail parties, four meetings with the press, and so forth...All in all, it was a pleasant vacation which enabled us to discharge our tensions, and it constituted the best possible transition period between Israel and the beginning of the assignment in the United States....Yitzhak Rabin [post script] Y.R." Rare full signature of Yitzhak Rabin is highly desirable; Y. Rabin is more common. Fine condition with the usual folds. January 1, 1968, Yitzhak Rabin retired from military service after twenty-eight years, to embark on a new career as Israeli Ambassador to the United States, a post he held five years. Before arriving in the United States, he and his family toured Europe, and this long letter of appreciation and frank opinion was sent to a friend who hosted the Rabin family during part of this trip. Rabin would return to Israel in 1973, and become active in the Knesset. Golda Meir would appoint Rabin Minister of Labor in April 1974, then only two months later, he would be elected Prime Minister. Resigning in 1977, Rabin held various Knesset and ministerial appointments until 1992 when, at the age of 70, he was reelected Prime Minister. Rabin worked closely with Shimon Peres, who served as Minister of Foreign Affairs in his Government, and directed contacts regarding the "Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements" - the agreement signed between Israel and the P.L.O. on September 13, 1993. Towards the end of 1993, the signatories of the Israel-P.L.O. agreement, Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres and Yasser Arafat, were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. On November 4, 1995, at the conclusion of a support rally for the peace process, Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated by a Jewish gunman in Tel-Aviv. Five months after his trip to France, the President of Iraq, Abd ar-Rahman Arif, was overthrown in a bloodless coup led by the Ba'th military group in Iraq. 'Arif was stripped of his power and ordered to leave the country. The first order of the new regime in Iraq was to set up the Revolutionary Command Council, which had supreme authority. The RCC elected al-Bakr president and Saddam Hussein vice president. As al-Bakr's health deteriorated, Saddam Hussein and members of the Ba'th party took full control and turned the country into a dictatorship. Those who were not loyal to the Ba'th party were removed from the government.

        [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.

You, comrade Ben-Gurion, are a symbol for the entire nation, one of the first layers of our countries foundations and its managements with a sure hand, wisdom and talent for so many years. You will forever hold the first rights. Your eyes will witness the fulfillment of your grand vision and all your aspirations, the settlement of the wastelands, the blossoming of the Negev, the expansion of science, great immigration and the rise of moral standards and virtue in the nation.…Attached is the poem [not included] ‘As a tall rock" which I wrote for you on your 80th jubilee and was printed in "Mabat-Hadash’ [New View] issue 57 September 1966.

        Early twentieth-century sketchbook of historic ornament, primarily from the Victoria & Albert Museum

      Various places 1968 - Beautifully executed sketchbook of historic ornament based primarily on artifacts in the Victoria & Albert Museum, containing thirty pages of pencil, ink, and watercolor sketches by English art student Leonard Timson (1879-1936). The range of ornamental details is wide, covering sculpture, ceramic, and stained glass designs, from a sixth-century Coptic frieze, to thirteenth-century Italian mosaics in porphyry and marble heightened with gold, to colorful seventeenth-century Spanish tiles. Most of the designs are marked "S.K.M." for the South Kensington Museum, formally renamed the Victoria & Albert in 1899: most notably, a fully-finished pen and watercolor painting of the stained glass window "The Adoration of the Magi," which came to South Kensington from the Cathedral of Cortona in Tuscany. Outside the galleries, Timson records local architectural and sculptural details from Cobham Church in Kent, Fairford Church in Gloucestershire (famous for its stained glass), St. Mary's in Buckinghamshire, and even, farther afield, the entrance gates to the Antwerp Zoo. Timson's style of sketching and his annotations are indebted to the work of Richard Glazier, a member of the South Kensington Circle (along with Owen Jones and Henry Cole), and head of the Manchester Municipal School of Art. Glazier's 1899 Historic Ornament was the most widely assigned art textbook in England in the early twentieth century, and Timson was clearly immersed in it. His sketchbook imitates Historic Ornament in lettering, layout, shorthand (including "S.K.M."), and choice of subjects. In the National Art Competition of 1904, while a student at Battersea Polytechnic Institute, Timson won a bronze medal "for his well-executed design for a panel in the Italian Renaissance style," perhaps inspired by the subjects in this sketchbook; his stained-glass work would later appear in an exhibition at the Royal Academy, and he would pursue a career as a draughtsman. Toward the end of the sketchbook, Leonard's daughter Enid Timson (1906-1994), an avocational painter, contributes thirteen pages of her own, including six full-page watercolors. While her work is less accomplished than her father's, her watercolors of the Ponte Vecchio and other Florentine scenes have their own charm. A remarkable ornamental sketchbook, testifying to the influence of the South Kensington Circle in early twentieth-century English art education. Oblong folio measuring 7.5 x 10.5 inches, original half diapered black calf over pebbled green cloth boards, spine ruled in gilt, black calf cylindrical pencil-holder attached to lower board, original elastic band (mended) attached to upper board, all edges speckled red. Front pastedown bears a calligraphic ink ownership inscription ("Leon: B. Timson / July 1903"), the bookplate of "RcF" in Morningthorpe, and a Reeves & Sons stationer's ticket ("Made of Whatman's Paper") beside their Ludgate Hill showroom stamp. Forty-five illustrated pages of pencil sketches, pen-and-ink drawings, and watercolors, including one pen-and-ink sketch of stained glass windows on older paper tipped to the final pastedown. One of Enid Timson's watercolors cleanly excised at rear. Corners bumped, pencil holder and spine ends heavily rubbed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE ELECTRIC KOOL-AID ACID TEST

      Farrar , Straus and Giroux, New York 1968 - 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. A fine crisp copy in a fine crisp dust jacket, almost like new [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
