        So Many Rooms Has A House But One Roof.

      Mexico City: , 1968. 16 pp. carbon typescript, stapled. 3 leaves extracted from The Minnesota Review, stapled. Six typed letters (one of which two leaves). Housed in two grey card folders. Good condition. Pre-publication carbon-copy typescript of this important American feminist and revolutionary's early poetry collection. Randall's author's note, included here, states: "So many rooms has a house but one roof came out of a death and a rebirth in revolutionary cuba, january – february, 1967. i was there to participate in the 'encuentro con ruban dario', along with some eighty other poets from all over the world . . . now the 12 sections are a year old, things have happened, but the change is in one direction only. el che is dead, and with him fear died. this, then, is a piece of the whole – eight years from the triumph of the revolution that produced – and is producing – the first free territory of america. margaret randall, mexico city – 12.67". There is also a notice observing "four sections of this manuscript were first published by Poetry Magazine (Chicago) in their february, 1968 issue. a limited, deluxe edition of the entire series will be brought out by c. w. truesdale's press in nyack, new york, and a popular edition will be done by Guerrilla Press in new york city". From the collection of British writer Arnold Wesker (1936–2016), to whom it was evidently sent. The typescript is accompanied by Randall's poem "The Black, Market" (five pages extracted from The Minnesota Review and stapled) inscribed, "for Arnold Wesker w/ all best, Margaret 6.68", and six piece of typewritten correspondence between the two writers, four typed letters signed from Randall to Wesker, and two copies of his replies. The correspondence, between Mexico and London, dates May–October 1968, and reveals Wesker's financial support for the poet struggling at the time with both political oppression and pregnancy. This period coincided with the Mexico Olympics, of which Randall remarks in one of the letters, "olympics & 'splendor' over now, and we wait for the inevitable strengthening of repression now the tourists have all gone home". One of the letters advertises the work of, and begs for funding to help, the revolutionary Mexican magazine Randall co-founded, El Corno Emplumado.

        Soma, divine mushroom of immortality.

      - The Hague, Mouton, 1968. 4to (29.8 x 20.5 cm). xiii., 381, [i] pp., two full colour plates (illustrations), 17 tipped-in full colour photographic plates (I-XV, XXII; plate VIII with two photos tipped in, the second not counted), and six black and white photos (XVI-XX, and one not numbered), 10 numbered text figures, including one unnumbered text figure - possibly number 8 - tinted with red, three maps (labelled A, B, C), one folded chart. Original blue half calf with gilt border and gilt title on the spine. Fore edge uncut.l True first, being number 32 of the limited edition, described in the book as follows: "Of this book 680 copies have been made, designed by Giovanni Mardersteig and set in Dante type, of which two are designed A & B and the others are numbered from 1 to 678. The text and the illustrations have been printed by the Stamperia Valdonegga in Verona, except for the two plates in pochoir, which were executed in Paris by Daniel Jacomet et Cie. The paper was made by hand by Fratelli Magnani, Pescia, and the printing was finished in October 1968". This edition was published in the Hague, and is not a New York, NY Harcourt Brace edition, which is the simpler trade edition published after 1969. Oddly, there are New York copies on the market that supposedly belong to the same limited edition, but in their internet descriptions the number of illustrations (lower in the New York trade edition) is "wisely" not mentioned. This is Ethno-Mycological Studies I (sometimes erroneously listed as "Ethno-Mythological Studies"). In this work the writer, ethnomycologist and banker Robert Gordon Wasson (1898-1986), provides ample evidence for the important role that hallucinogenic mushrooms - in particular the ubiquitous mushroom Amanita muscaria (fly agaric) - play in various ancient and modern cultures. Slipcase wanting, otherwise a fine, unmarked, spotless copy. Volbracht, 2230. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        GEORGIA O'KEEFFE - DRAWINGS

      New York, 1968. Portfolio set of 10 lithographs. Individually framed, accompanied by the original folding box. From an edition of 250, one of 230 signed. Fine. When Georgia O'Keeffe created the original drawing published in this limited edition print portfolio, she was still an unknown artist. The drawings, begun in 1915, are considered by art historians to be among the earliest and most individual manifestations of abstraction in American modern art. In 1968, O'Keeffe personally selected ten of her drawings - those that she though represented the range and variety of her work - for this project. Chip Benson, a MacArthur Prize-winning artist and a former Dean of the Yale School of Art, worked with Doris Bry, the leading authority on O'Keeffe's art, to create the prints. The lithographs were then published by Atlantis Editions, the imprint founded by Bry, and was the first of many collaborative projects undertaken by the pair. The ten drawings were printed in 300-line screen offset lithography; nine of the plates were made in black and white, and "Blue Lines" was printed in a striking blue. Two hundred thirty copies were numbered and signed by O'Keeffe herself. In the original folding box is also included a booklet with an introduction by art historian Lloyd Goodrich. The works exemplify O'Keeffe's use of undulating, spiral motifs, with swirling and delicate forms that draw in the eye and create dynamic compositions.

        2001: A Space Odyssey

      New York: New American Library, 1968. Fine/Fine. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED by Clarke on half-title. Clarke's novel, adapted from his short-story The Sentinel (1951), was written simultaneously with the screenplay for Stanley Kubrick's classic film and published shortly after the movie's release. "[The novel] is a fantasy-you need not believe it-but a fantasy by a master who is as deft at generating accelerating, almost painful suspense as he is knowledgeable and accurate (and fascinating) about the technical and human details of space flight and exploration. But it is finally the stretching of the imagination that is most enthralling as Mr. Clarke entices the reader into strange and magnificent conceptions of other forms of time, dimension and existence" (Eliot Fremont-Smith, New York Times ). New York: New American Library, 1968. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. Book fine, dust jacket with a hint of wear at top of spine. Rare signed and in such good condition.
