        The Left Hand of Darkness

      New York: Walker & Company, 1969. First edition of the author's Nebula and Hugo award-winning novel. Octavo, original gray cloth. Boldly signed by Ursula Le Guin on the title page. An excellent example in an near fine dust jacket with some rubbing and wear to the spine extremities. A groundbreaking work of science fiction, The Left Hand of Darkness tells the story of a lone human emissary to Winter, an alien world whose inhabitants can change their gender. His goal is to facilitate Winter's inclusion in a growing intergalactic civilization. But to do so he must bridge the gulf between his own views and those of the completely dissimilar culture that he encounters. Embracing the aspects of psychology, society, and human emotion on an alien world, The Left Hand of Darkness stands as a landmark achievement in the annals of intellectual science fiction. "A jewel of a story" (Frank Herbert).

        Inscribed “with best wishes from Tranquility Base” by Neil Armstrong, signed by all three Apollo astronauts on the first lunar landing mission – Man’s first message from the Moon, spoken by Armstrong, was “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.”

      n.p., n.d.. 10" x 8". "Exceedingly Rare Color Photograph Signed “To Collins Bird - / With Sincere Best Wishes / from Tranquility Base / Neil Armstrong,” “Buzz Aldrin,” and “M. Collins.” Color, 10” x 8”. Partially affixed to 10.25” x 8.5” board. Fine condition.Official NASA photographs taken on the Moon, especially those taken on the day of the landing, signed by all three Apollo XI crewmembers, are extremely rare and desirable, as compared to lithographic prints or even the common Apollo XI posed crew photograph.This photograph, titled “Flag of the U.S. deployed on surface of the Moon,” was taken from inside the lunar module on July 20, 1969. Captioned by NASA on its website: “The flag of the United States, deployed on the surface of the Moon, dominates this photograph taken from inside the Lunar Module. The footprints of Astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. stand out clearly. In the far background is the deployed black and white lunar surface television camera which televised the Apollo 11 lunar surface extravehicular activity.” NASA’s Photo ID is AS11-37-5545, ““Date Taken: 1969-07-20.”Collins Bird was the owner of the Georgetown Inn on Wisconsin Avenue in Washington, D.C. When astronauts and NASA officials were in the nation’s capital, they stayed at Bird’s hotel. Apollo astronaut James Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger wrote in “Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13” (New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1994), “Ever since 1962, when Wally Schirra came to town for a medal and a handshake from President Kennedy following his successful nine-hour Mercury flight, the inn had served as unofficial host to many a NASA dignitary. The place was out-of-the-way enough to offer the privacy the country’s space pioneers craved, and new enough to offer the poshness they had come to enjoy. Collins Bird, the hotel’s first and only owner, had his inn done up in a subdued colonial style…”"

        Chicago, Chicago

      Tokyo: Bijutsu Shuppan-Sha, , 1969. Rilegato tela (cloth). Foreword by Harry Callahan. Text by Shuzo Takiguchi. 208 black and white photographs by Yasuhiro Ishimoto. Note by Yusaku Kamekura. Layout by Yusaku Kamehura. Text in Japanese and English. 4to. pp. 224. . Senza custodia, ma ottima copia (Without original white card slip-case, otherwise fine). Prima edizione (First edition). "Like the earlier work  the book is split into sections, seven of them this time, revealing various aspects of Chicago and the two major photographic preoccupations of Ishimoto at the time - the formal urban landscape and the street portrait. If the portraits and street-life images win out, it is because people are more interesting then things, and the photographer himself is more challenged by people, less prone to exercising merely formal concerns, though no Ishimoto image is ever less than elegant" (Parr, Badger, The Photobook: A History volume I - p. 289)

        LEAFLETS. POEMS 1965-1968

      W. W. Norton & Company (1969), New York - INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper to Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Hardwick, and their only child Harriet: "For Elizabeth + Cal + Harriet-/with always more love-/Adrienne." Lowell appropriated the book and the margins are filled with his ticks and slashes and a few words, especially in the section "Ghazals, Homage to Ghalib," a series of meditations on contemporary life modeled on Ghalib; the similarity to the poems Lowell was then working on for NOTEBOOKS and HISTORY is remarkable as is the association value of this copy. Three years later Lowell would publish THE DOLPHIN which Rich called "a cruel and shallow book" and "one of the most vindictive and mean-spirited acts in the history of poetry." Writing in AMERICAN POETRY REVIEW, she said: "what does one say about a poet who, having left his wife and daughter for another marriage, then titles a book with their names [FOR LIZZIE AND HARRIET] and goes on to appropriate his ex-wife’s letters written under the stress and pain of desertion, into a book of poems nominally addressed to the new wife?"

Thank you for a lovely time in Holland [after the 'Posing on stairs' at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdan. Nov. 15, 1969]... We are not willing to exhibit ... in the current situation of the Mickery Gallery/Theatre... We have, however, an exciting answer - it is a sculpture as a book, an art piece as a book..., a princely volume of great George and Gilbert future art..." Dec. 1969: "... "The Book" would represent our art-thinking and art-being by use of the printed word, by the photograph and by the drawing. "The Book" would be really 'a book'... We hope very much that "Mickery" will see its way to publishing the sculpture entitled "The Book"..." Jan. 1970: "... We want only to make a good book wich is concerned purely with art. We would like you to come to regard yourself as the producer of this piece. Naturally it would be ideal for us to prepare a proto-type, but we would need a financial contribution... We would honestly like to say how happy we would be to work with you in the "Sculpture" that is a "Book". Happy new art decade to you...".

        Ben-Gurion Writes to Save His Nascent University in the Negev

      1969 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Avraham Zvion, December 26, 1969. 2 pp. in Hebrew, on off-white faintly-lined sheets 4 7/8 x 8 3/8 in. Translation 26.12.69Sde-BokerDear Zvion, I'm sorry for writing you things that until recently I hadn't realized that I would be required to. That's because I have admired all these years the work you've done for the Midrasha. However, your actions following our conversation, when we both agreed after a long discussion, that you won't be leaving the school's management right now but only at the end of this year, and meanwhile you'll assist the new person that will be assigned here to prepare the new education program for the Midrasha - initial university studies. You will then take two years off as education leave, and afterwards will retrieve the management of the Midrasha. I wouldn't have believed anyone that you are capable and ready to do this, an action that in my opinion may bring the destruction of the Midrashain Sde-Boker. But I have had meetings. Several female students, that have recently graduated the teacher seminar in the Midrasha, and now became fresh teachers all over the country, came to me to voice support for your claims. I heard these claims with a great sorrow, not because I didn't like it, since I'm capable of hearing claims I dislike. I was upset because those claims came from you. You invited me to Even-Ari in Avdat, and I enjoyed your invitation, since I heard interesting things about the feasibility of fertilizing the desert without Yarden, Yarkon and not through desalination of sea water. But all of this was just a preparation for your claims. I happened to arrive at the parliament for a few moments, and two good acquaintances came to visit me. One of them is a teacher Levin, who is nowadays a member of the parliament, and you recruited him to stir up the Teachers' Union against the Negev Committee. The second person, who has earned a respectful position in our modern history, is a lawyer Klausner. You summoned him to prosecute the Negev Committee. Although I honor your activities in the Midrasha and I do not have an authority to intervene in its management, as a citizen I feel an obligation to do so, since this enterprise that you managed to raise to such a level, might be sacrificed in your war against the Negev Committee. During the last meeting I spoke to you, and you came up with three new demands, claiming that if they are accepted by the Committee, you'll agree to leave for studies at the end of the year. At the meeting I did not want to acquiesce to these propositions, but I could not understand how you came up with them and how it goes along with what should be done with the head of the Teachers' Union and with Mr. Klausner. I do not know if there is any value in my writing to you nor do I think that my sorrow will change your mind. However, as one who cherishes and admires your work in the development of the Midrasha for more than five years, I feel an obligation not only towards the Midrasha, but also to you, to tell what lies on my heart. Please do not bring the destruction of the Midrasha! With respect and deep sorrow, D. Ben GurionHistoricBackgroundFollowing David Ben-Gurion's vision to build a university in the Negev desert, the construction of Midreshet-Ben Gurion began in 1963. The Midrasha was founded as a governmental corporation which owned the campus and ran all municipal affairs. The Negev Committee, headed by Ya'akov Ya'akovson, operated as the board of directors.In 1964, the Negev Committee assigned lieutenant-colonel Avraham Zvion to become the principal of the Midrasha. With heart and soul, Zvion built a vigorous community reaching over 1,000 members. He started several different specialized schools (i.e. high-school, teacher seminars) and recruited excellent teachers to join and promote the enterprise. Despite his unquestionable achievements, Zvion's character was harsh, and he did not take well to critics. (See website for full description)

Though its predecessor units have lineage that dates back before the American Civil War, the formation was not formally designated as the 20th Engineer Brigade until its activation on 16 August 1950, at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Deploying overseas in November 1952, it supported construction projects in southwestern France until its return to the US on 10 September 1954. Reactivated on 1 May 1967, at Fort Bragg, the brigade deployed to Vietnam where it supported American forces for several years and a dozen campaigns. The brigade was deactivated on 20 September 1971, as American forces withdrew from the country. This souvenir book comprehensively documents the brigade's activities & asssigned personnel during the period of June 1968 to June 1969. A unique item, the first such we've been able to offer chronicling this period of US history.

With a TLS from the author to Tom Driberg, journalist and MP, sending him the book and flippantly mentioning the libel action threatened by Skeffington-Lodge, who is referred to here as T.C. Radcliffe-Hall. He laments the unpleasantness but admits, "I suppose it was naughty of me." King had put into the book a scene based on Skeffington-Lodge's bid for a peerage. After writing to senior figures in the Labour Party, urging them to intercede on his behalf, Skeffington-Lodge received a one-line reply from Lord Attlee, expressing the hope that he would "get what he deserved"; Skeffington-Lodge took this at face value and read it aloud at a dinner party at which King was present. King then put this verbatim into A Domestic Animal, taking the precaution of disguising his original source as a female character named Dame Winifred Harcourt. Also present is a subsequent signed note from King imploring Driberg and other owners of advance copies to destroy them "without fail or return to me for destruction". The request has an unrelated but entertaining jotting by Driberg on the back.

In den vorderen Vorsätzen kleinstes ExLibris. Sehr schönes noch sperriges Exemplar. Tolkien hatte nicht unerheblichen Einfluss auf Teile dieser ersten Übersetzung von »Lord of the Rings« ins Deutsche, so dass er 1967, enttäuscht von den Übersetzungen in andere germanische Sprachen, Richtlinien zu den Namen verfasste. Auch bot er persönliche Hilfe bei der Übersetzung an. So erfolgte die Übersetzung durch Margaret Carroux in direkter Zusammenarbeit mit Tolkien. Aufgrund von Tolkiens Tod 1973 erschienen nur diese deutsche sowie die dänische Übersetzung von Ida Nyrop Ludvigsen mit Hilfe Tolkiens. M03700

        Campo urbano. Interventi estetici nella dimensione collettiva urbana. Como 21 settembre 1969

      Como: Editrice Cesare Nani, , 1969. Brossura (wrappers). Ottimo (Fine). Testo di Luciano Caramel. Completamente illustrato con fotografie di Ugo Mulas. Progetto grafico di Bruno Munari. 8vo. . Ottimo (Fine). Prima edizione (First Edition). Il 21 settembre 1969 ebbe luogo, per le vie e per le piazze di Como, la manifestazione "Campo urbano. Interventi estetici nella dimensione collettiva urbana". All'evento, coordinato dal critico e storico dell'arte Luciano Caramel, parteciparono artisti di spicco quali Enrico Baj, Davide Boriani, Gianni Colombo, Dadamaino, Luciano Fabro, Bruno Munari, Giulio Paolini, Ico Parisi, Grazia Varisco e tanti altri. Esso nasceva dalla volontà di portare l'artista a diretto contatto con la collettività di una città, coi suoi spazi, le sue necessità e le sue abitudini, permettendogli di agire in piena libertà. Il catalogo omonimo della performance, dopo la riproduzione della mappa del centro storico, del programma completo dalle 14 alle 21 e del comunicato stampa, riproduce le fotografie delle varie azioni in nero e ciano scattate da Ugo Mulas. Tra gli interventi più originali quello di Munari "Far vedere l'aria", tentativo di visualizzazione dell'aria di Piazza Duomo mediante il lancio di pezzi di carta dall'alto della torre.  Oppure la "Dilatazione spazio temporale di un percorso" della Varisco che alterava gli abituali confini di una strada per mezzo di diaframmi che ne raddoppiavano l'itinerario e ne mettevano in luce nuovi aspetti. O ancora Dadamaino che organizzò una "Illuminazione fosforescente automotoria sull'acqua"
