        The Lord of the Rings, 1st Deluxe UK 1 Volume India Paper Edition of 1969

      London: Allen & Unwin, 1969. First Thus. Original Cloth. Very Good Plus/No Jacket, as Issued. J.R.R. Tolkien. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Lord of the Rings, De Luxe Edition, by George Allen & Unwin. This is the 1st impression of the one volume De Luxe Edition of the Lord of the Rings, published by Allen & Unwin in 1969. A Very Good Plus example of a highly collectable book. The only minor fault is a bit of rubbing to the gilt in the upper corner of the top compartment on the spine, and the black buckram cloth is also very lightly faded on the spine, due to exposure to light. The slipcase shows some minor rubbing to the edges, but has protected the book very well for almost 50 years. This edition is printed on India Paper, making the full 3 volumes bound into a single volume, only 1 inch thick. The black buckram cloth has the Tolkien design depicting the Numenorean throne with 'Elendil' in tengwar, stamped on upper cover in gilt, silver and green. Mottled black and grey wove endpapers, all edges trimmed and speckled light green. Housed in the original publishers slipcase, only the 1st & 2nd impressions were issued with the slipcase. Both maps bound in, and in Near Fine condition, no tears, extra folds, or loss noted. An excellent example of this wonderful edition. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Very Good Plus / No Jacket, as Issued.

        Quinze années d'acquisitions : 1954-1968, de la pose de la première pierre à l'inauguration officielle de la Bibliothèque

      1969 - Quinze années d'acquisitions : 1954-1968, de la pose de la première pierre à l'inauguration officielle de la Bibliothèque royale Albert Ier, le 17 février 1969. Exposition organisée à cette occasion du 18 février au 30 mars. 548 pp. Exemplaire très bien relié (voir photos). 21x26 cm. 1969. Bon état. Bel Ex-libris du célèbre Docteur Pierre BASTIEN ! Pierre Bastien, né le 13 avril 1924 à Ban-de-Laveline et mort le 21 mai 2006 à Remiremont, est un médecin français. Il s'est fait connaître par ses recherches personnelles et controversées sur l'intoxication par les champignons de type amanite. Médecin depuis 1952, à Remiremont dans les Vosges, Pierre Bastien imagine en 1957 un protocole de traitement de l'intoxication alimentaire due à trois amanites mortelles, phalloïdes, vireuses et printanières. Le traitement, connu sous la dénomination non officielle de « protocole Bastien », combine l'action des vitamines B et C, l'ingestion de levures et une désinfection intestinale. Ce protocole, qui doit être mis en œuvre avant la destruction du foie, n'a jamais fait l'objet d'une étude scientifique rigoureuse et contradictoire dans le monde médical. Néanmoins enthousiasmé par les résultats obtenus sur des cas avérés d'intoxication phalloïdienne qu'il traite lui-même avec succès à l'hôpital de Remiremont ; mais dénigré par certains de ses confrères, il ingère par trois fois, en 1971, 1974 et 1983, devant les caméras de télévision, des plats d'amanite phalloïde (jusqu'à 70 grammes de champignons)2. Le 28 mars 1981, The Lancet publie et reconnaît son protocole dit de Bastien3. Pierre Bastien tente une incursion en politique lors des élections cantonales de 1963, mais y est devancé par Christian Poncelet. Père de famille, veuf en 1984, il succombe en 2006 à un infarctus.

        I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Gather Together In My Name, Singin' and Swingin' and Gettin' Merry Like Christmas, The Heart of a Woman, All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes, A Song Flung Up To Heaven.

      New York: Random House, 1969-2002. First editions, first issues of each volume in Angelou's acclaimed autobiography series. Octavo, 6 volumes. Each are either signed or inscribed by Maya Angelou. Fine in near fine to fine dust jackets. An exceptional set, uncommon in this condition and signed. "This testimony from a black sister marks the beginning of a new era in the minds and hearts of all black men and women... I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, liberates the reader into life simply because Maya Angelou confronts her own life with such a moving wonder, such a luminous dignity. I have no words for this achievement, but I know that not since the days of my childhood, when the people in books were more real than the people one saw every day, have I found myself so moved... Her portrait is a biblical study in life in the midst of death" (James Baldwin).

        [Report of the dire situation during the siege of Vienna, still in progress, incipit:] Obschon Röm. Keyserl. Maj. bevor der Ao. 1664. mit dem Gross-Turcken geschlossene Stillestand der Wassen zu Ende gelauffen, bereits Ao. 1682. im Monat Majo den Hn. Grafen Albert Caprara nach Constantinopel angefertiget, ...[Passau?], [late August 1683]. Broadside (29 x 32 cm). With a large woodcut decorated initial (a 53 mm gothic O), the text set in 2 columns with a band of cast fleurons across the head, another between the columns and a rule at the foot.

      Cf. ESTC R20817 (4 copies of the English translation); Wing P587 (5 copies the English edition); not in Apponyi, Hungarica ... Flugschiften (1969); KVK & WorldCat; VD17. First edition of an extremely rare and possibly unique broadside (the only edition in the original German) printed and published near the end of the 1683 Ottoman siege of Vienna, apparently written by (and certainly based on fresh reports by) an eye-witness, published at the most desperate moment of the siege, less than two weeks before Imperial and Polish reinforcements arrived to rescue the city.The report gives background information beginning with the 1664 peace treaty and unsuccessful attempts to renew it in 1682. But it centres on the events unfolding at the time of publication. In addition to details about the progression of the troops, it gives information about the fortifications, about artillery used by both sides and it accuses the Ottomans of barbarous deeds and espionage. It discusses the roles of the Turks, Tatars, Transylvanians, Wallacians and Moldavians. It also reflects recent technological advances, such as the use of a telescope and the Ottoman use of powerful explosive mines to breach the heavily fortified city walls.The band of fleurons at the head of the broadside and the rule at the foot have been partly trimmed off, but the broadside is otherwise in good condition, only slightly tattered at the edges, with a couple creases in the paper and one or two very small holes and spots. Only copy located of an account of the Ottoman siege of Vienna published while it was still in progress.

      Harry N. Abrams [1969], New York - 230 p. 28 x 30 cm. 153 illustrations, 47 in colour. Pictorial hardcover. Some discolouration to spine. Light edge wear. Small stain bottom edge and little spot on fold-out plate list at rear. A little soiling to top edge of p. 3. American artist Robert Rauschenberg's early works anticipated the pop art movement. He is best remembered for his "Combines" of the 1950s, in which non-traditional materials and objects were employed in innovative blends. One of his first and most famous combines was "Monogram" (p. 188), in which the unlikely mix of a stuffed angora goat, a tire, a police barrier, the heel of a shoe, and a tennis ball alter the course of modern art. The work in this book will stop viewers in their tracks, just as they did in mid-twentieth century. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Scarce, OCLC locates a single copy at the National Library of Australia.. First Edition. Large quarto. SIGNED and inscribed in Italian by Butturini. An incredible photobook capturing the seedier side of 1969 swinging London. Butturini's stark black and white images connect London's gritty street life with the emerging counterculture youth tribes in a photographic vision that is both Dickensian and modernist. The self-published book opens with a quote from Robert Capa and poetry by Allen Ginsberg; Italian texts by Butturini and Luciano Modini follow. Martin Parr credits the book as containing some of his favorite images of the capital, while Gerry Badger notes that the photography is "more Don McCullin than David Bailey" (Parr / Badger, v. 3, 154-155).

        Psychedelic" Map of Woodstock].

      New York, 1969 - The summer of love Newspaper (410 by 300mm), 20pp., map of Woodstock to front cover. The East Village Other (often abbreviated as EVO), was an American underground newspaper in New York City, New York, issued biweekly during the 1960s. It was described by The New York Times as "a New York newspaper so countercultural that it made The Village Voice look like a church circular". Published by Walter Bowart, EVO was among the first countercultural newspapers to emerge, following the Los Angeles Free Press, which had begun publishing a few months earlier. It was an important publication for the underground comix movement, featuring comic strips by artists including Robert Crumb, Kim Deitch, Trina Robbins, Spain Rodriguez, Gilbert Shelton and Art Spiegelman before underground comic books emerged from San Francisco with the first issue of Zap Comix. The present edition published August 13 1969, devotes the front cover and much of the contents to the famous Woodstock Festival of '69. This is how the BBC reported it at the time: Thousands of young people are heading home after three days and nights of sex, drugs and rock and roll at the Woodstock music festival. An estimated 400,000 youngsters turned up to hear big-name bands play in a field near the village of Bethel, New York state in what has become the largest rock concert of the decade. About 186,000 tickets were sold so promoters anticipated that around 200,000 would turn up. But on Friday night, the flimsy fences and ticket barriers had come down and organisers announced the concert was free prompting thousands more to head for the concert. Traffic jams eight miles long blocked off the area near White Lake, near Bethel, some 50 miles from the town of Woodstock. Local police estimated a million people were on the road yesterday trying to get to Woodstock. They were overwhelmed by the numbers but were impressed by a good level of behaviour. The festival's chief medical officer, Dr William Abruzzi told Rolling Stone magazine: "These people are really beautiful. There has been no violence whatsoever which is really remarkable for a crowd of this size." Those who made it to the makeshift venue were treated to performances by Janis Joplin, The Who, Grateful Dead, Canned Heat, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez and Ravi Shankar. Rainstorms failed to dampen the spirits of the revellers, many high on marijuana, some dancing naked in the now muddy fields. The main organiser, 49-year-old dairy farmer Max Yasgur, who provided $50,000 and 600 acres of his land, addressed the crowds on the last day of the event. "You have proven something to the world. that half a million kids can get together for fun and music and have nothing but fun and music." There were however two deaths - a teenager was killed by a tractor as he lay in his sleeping bag and another died from a drugs overdose." The map to the front cover captures some of the drug-fuelled psychedelia of the festival in its wonderful surrealist work. The Woodstock poster logo of catbird and guitar, originally created by New York artist Arnold Skolnick for the 1969 Festival is radically transformed here, as these two motifs merge into a trio of strange guitar-headed birds, each presumably representing one of the three days of the festival. A further three guitars open up to reveal strange hidden contents, perhaps a symbolic metaphor for the amazing range of music that was expected to follow in the coming weekend. Further to this roads are seen transformed into electric leads, and guitar straps. In the foreground two naked women emerge from tubes label "Glee".

        Business Adventures / Twelve classic tales from the worlds of Wall Street and the modern American corporation

      Weybright and Talley, New York 1969 - Although this copy is entirely bound in black cloth with apple green endpapers (just like the similarly sized trade editions) and states "Third printing, February, 1969" to copyright page, the absence of any price from the (unclipped) jacket front flap, and the presence of a small, square deboss to bottom of rear board at spine, tell us this is in fact a book-club edition. Author Brooks, who wrote regularly for the New Yorker (where all of these pieces first appeared, albeit "in different form"), here gives us 50 pp. on the fate of the Ford Edsel (presumably condensed from his earlier, 1963 book of that title), with additional chapters on the rise of Xerox; on David Lilienthal; on the price-rigging of industrial transformers and generators by Westinghouse, GE, and others (as revealed to the public by Sen. Estes Kefauver); on the weird social and economic distortions caused by the intricacies of the federal income tax, etc. Business. 399 pp. including index. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
