Additionally inscribed by Hugnet to the original purchaser, publisher Roberto Altmann. "Published in 1969 but using collages dating from many years before, an therefore essentially a modernist book - show[s] him at his best....a surreal, erotic travel tale based on the Michelin Guide...ostensibly a journal and photo-album of a trip along the Brittany coast...Hugnet's photomontages are both complex and witty....This volume could be regarded as the last great romp of a 1930s surrealist, but Hugnet reminds us that the surrealists took their play seriously. The whole pdoduction, by Henri Mercier, is of the highest quality...." Parr and Badger, I, 109.

        Lettres à Lou

      Gallimard, Paris 1969 - [Correspondance]. Édition originale (Éo). 1/29 premiers exemplaires sur vélin de Hollande van Gelder numérotés de 1 à 29. [27]. Préface et notes de Michel Décaudin. Photographies et documents en noir et blanc hors texte. [Peu avant de s'engager dans l'armée française, Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918) tombe amoureux de Louise de Coligny-Châtillon (1881-1963)(qui fut une des premières aviatrices françaises et l'amante puis la muse de Guillaume Apollinaire de 1914 à 1915), rencontrée à la Villa Baratier, dans les environs de Nice, en septembre 1914 et la surnomme Lou. La comtesse est divorcée et mène une vie très libre. Guillaume Apollinaire s'éprend d'elle et la courtise d'abord en vain. Puis quand sa demande d'engagement est enfin acceptée et qu'il est envoyé à Nîmes, elle finit par accepter ses avances et part le rejoindre pendant une semaine, mais elle ne lui dissimule pas son attachement pour un homme qu'elle surnommait Toutou. Rapidement, Guillaume doit partir au front. Une correspondance naît de leur relation ; au dos des lettres qu'Apollinaire envoyait au début au rythme d'une par jour ou tous les deux jours, puis de plus en plus espacées, se trouvent des poèmes qui furent rassemblés plus tard sous le titre de Ombre de mon amour puis de Poèmes à Lou. Sa déclaration d'amour, dans une lettre datée du 28 septembre 1914 commençait en ces termes : " Vous ayant dit ce matin que je vous aimais, ma voisine d'hier soir, j'éprouve maintenant moins de gêne à vous l'écrire. Je l'avais déjà senti dès ce déjeûner dans le vieux Nice où vos grands et beaux yeux de biche m'avaient tant troublé que je m'en étais allé aussi tôt que possible afin d'éviter le vertige qu'ils me donnaient. ". Mais la jeune femme ne l'aimera jamais, du moins comme il l'aurait voulu ; ils rompent en mars 1915 en se promettant de rester amis. Devenu le fiancé de Madeleine Pagès, ses lettres se firent plus rares et plus impersonnelles. La dernière, assez froide, est datée du 18 janvier 1916. Leur correspondance amoureuse, telle que rédigée par Apollinaire, représente 220 lettres et 76 poèmes, souvent incrustés dans les lettres. En 1947, Louise de Coligny-Châtillon fit publier chez l'éditeur suisse Pierre Cailler les 76 poèmes et bouts rimés extraits de la correspondance d'Apollinaire. Cet ouvrage, présenté sous le titre " Ombre de mon Amour ", titre imaginé par Apollinaire pour un futur recueil fut vivement contesté par sa veuve Jacqueline et fut réédité plus tard sous le titre " Poèmes à Lou ". L'édition en 1955 de la correspondance intégrale, toujours chez Pierre Cailler, entraîna la mise au pilon de la totalité du tirage, à l'exception de rares exemplaires hors commerce. En 1969, après le décès de toutes les personnes liées à cette histoire, Gaston Gallimard, qui avait déjà édité l'intégrale poétique d'Apollinaire dans la prestigieuse collection de la Pléiade en 1956 au prix de treize années d'efforts acharnés, publia enfin l'intégralité des " Lettres à Lou ".] [Cet ouvrage a été achevé d'imprimer sur les presses de l'Imprimerie Floch à Mayenne le 28 novembre 1969. Dépôt légal : 4e trimestre 1969. N° d'édition : 14727. Imprimé en France. (9035)] Plein chagrin vermillon, dos à quatre nerfs, couverture crème et dos conservés [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ron Cooper. March 14 to April 4, 1969

      Los Angeles: Ace, 1969 Offset lithograph designed by Rick Griffin in black on off-white art paper. 28.9 x 23.1 inches / 73.4 x 58.7 cm. Folded in eight. Verso blank. The image consists entirely of the artist's name in elaborate rock-poster lettering on a large white field. The vital data are in similar but far more legible calligraphy at the bottom edge of the poster. A superb piece. Folds worn through in three small, nearly invisible spots. Some inevitable ruffling of the paper due to triple folding of relatively thick paper, but near fine, nevertheless. Not located in OCLC

        Autograph Letter Signed with Illustration on a picture postcard of Family Dog Productions, Sept. 8, 1969

      Ginsberg writes to Magdalene (Leni) Sinclair regarding John Sinclair's imprisonment for marijuana use. He writes on the address side of the green and purple Family Dog postcard promoting the " Love Congress of Wonders concert, March 1969 at the Avalon Ballroom. Here, Ginsberg offers to "do what I can to publicize John's usefulness to life and the bum rap he's in...I'll send out the appeals...." He asks whether the Sinclair's phone was shut off due to non -payment of the bills then offers advise. "You should prepare weekly short news clips... Let me know what P.E.N. says...." He signs in full, "Allen Ginsberg." In pencil he adds the date and return address of Cherry Valley, NY. Above his corespondent's name, Ginsberg made a whimsical drawing in an oval shape, two wings on each side of the oval, eyes and the word, "airmail" drawn as if to be the mouth. Minor marginal tears to lower right edges. Arrested for possession of marijuana in 1969, Sinclair was given ten years in prison. The sentence was criticized by many as unduly harsh, and it galvanized a noisy protest movement led by prominent figures of the 1960s counterculture. Sinclair was eventually freed in December 1971, but he remained in litigation - his case against the government for illegal domestic surveillance was successfully pled to the US Supreme Court in United States v. U.S. District Court (1972).

        Plexus. Edizione italiana

      Edizione Dellavalle 1969 7 voll. in 8, pp. 140 ogni vol. con ill. e fotografie n. t. Tutto il pubblicato dell'edizione italiana di questa rivista legata al mondo underground e della controcultura. Di notevole interesse il fatto che il comitato di redazione fosse composto da personaggi di grande rilevanza come Fernanda Pivano, Adriano Spatola, Gianrenzo Morteo e Franco Giachino Nichot. Il direttore era il pittore e giornalista Valerio Miroglio. Tema centrale della rivista (tributaria per le copertine e molti articoli dell'edizione francese) era la liberazione sessuale vista pero' come modo per guadagmare spazi per la liberta' di opinione che l'Italia di quegli anni tentava di soffocare. Il primo numero usci' con una fascetta editoriale riportante la scritta 'si prega di non sequestrare'. Il numero pero' venne sequestrato davvero e Miroglio, nellla prefazione del secondo numero, stigmatizza come '...i questurini che sono andati a sequestrare Plexus nelle edicole hanno lasciato dietro di se' ben esposti e in vendita centinaia di migliaia di pubblicazioni maso - sado - inverto - pornografiche del gusto piu' deteriore. Essi hanno sottratto ai lettori una rivista che si ripropone un coerente programma demistificante, che ha una dichiarata ragione culturale... hanno lasciato i fumetti razzisti, le odissee tascabili del legionario ammazzarabi...'. Molti articoli e servizi fotografici sono opera di ottimi autori come Rolan Topor, il fotografo, Lucien Clergue, Yves De Saint Agnes. Nel numero 6 compare una corposa inchiesta sulla omosessualita' con scritti di Roger Peyrefitte, Michel Butor, Alberto Bevilacqua, Fausto Omodei ecc. Nello stesso numero compare anche un intervento intitolato Il bagno padronale giustamente chiamato vanity, opera probabilmente di Miroglio stesso, colpisce molti stereotipi presenti nel mercato immobiliare: La pubblicita' per la casa dice: la casa e' il biglietto da visita del vostro prestigio. E ci risiamo: arrampicatevi! Che bello un poema fatto con la pubblicita' delle societa' immobiliari. Il mutuo, le cambiali, l'ipoteca un letto tutto d'oro... Di notevole interesse anche le recensioni, sia di mostre che libri e spettacoli, in buona parte redatte da Nico Orengo e Paolo Fossati. ITA

        Napoli Nobilissima. Rivista di topografia ed arte napoletana. Presentazione di Gino Doria. Napoli, Arturo Berisio Editore, 1969 - 1970

      Berisio 1969-1970 Napoli Nobilissima. Rivista di topografia ed arte napoletana. Presentazione di Gino Doria. Napoli, Arturo Berisio Editore, 1969 - 1970. 18 volumi in folio di circa 200 pp. ciascuno. Legatura in mezza pelle, dorsi a cordoni con titolo e fregi in oro. Cerniere indebolite (vedi foto). Fedele ristampa della dotta rivista storico - letteraria apparsa nel 1892 nella quale profusero largamente studi ed articoli i più insigni scrittori del tempo: Benedetto Croce, Schipa, Bartolomeo Capasso, Ceci, Bertaux, de Rinaldis, Di Giacomo, Giulio de Montemayor, Vittorio Spinazzola, Corrado Ricci, Michele Ruggiero, Lorenzo Salazar ed altri. Innumerevoli illustrazioni, disegni, incisioni dei più caratteristici monumenti del Mezzogiorno nei particolari e nell'insieme. Ritratti di artisti e di notabili, riproduzioni di rarissimi documenti. E' tutto un panorama storico del Regno di Napoli, del suo passato e delle sue opere d'arte, visto con gli occhi di B.Croce, che scelse con minuta attenzione le illustrazioni nonché i collaboratori. Rivive qui il Croce erudito come nella "Critica" si afferma il Croce filosofo. Cosicchè la raccolta di questa dotta e preziosa rivista italiana riesce documento insostituibile di Napoli capitale e delle sue vicende e più ancora dell'amore e dell'interesse che il Croce per quelle sempre ebbe. Dall'introduzione di Gino Doria: "La prima Napoli Nobilissima, sempre più ambita e ricercata, era divenuta una vera rarità bibliografica, tale da indurre l'editore Arturo Berisio a concepire ed attuare una ristampa".

        Jimi Hendrix's guitar string winder used during his historic Woodstock performance in August 1969!

      [Shokan & Bethel, New York], [c. July-August 1969]. 3", 8" x 5.5". "A white plastic guitar string winder, 3"" in length, used by Jimi Hendrix during the summer of 1969 as he prepared his new band, The Rainbow Band of Gypsies, for their historic performance at Woodstock in August 1969. The guitar winder was obtained from Hendrix by Lawrence ""Larry"" Lee (1963-2007) who played rhythm guitar with Hendrix at the festival. Offered together with a carbon receipt from Western Union (8"" x 5.5"") documenting a wire transfer of $1,500 from Lee to his wife, Shirley, in Nashville, [New York], September 4, 1969. Additionally offered with an unused three-day ticket for the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, August 15-17, 1969. The string winder bears expected wear, the receipt bears the usual folds, and some moderate soiling to the festival ticket. All are in very good condition overall. According to the original typed provenance, the guitar winder came from one of Hendrix's road cases. The Western Union receipt documents a transfer of $1,500 from Larry Lee to his wife, likely part of the fee he collected for appearing at Woodstock. Lawrence ""Larry"" Lee was a student at Tennessee State University, writing songs for Stax records on the side, when he first encountered Hendrix with Billy Cox at the Del Morocco, a Nashville nightclub. At first Lee thought Hendrix to be ""the worst guitar player I had ever heard."" (John McDermott, Interview with Larry Lee, Guitar World, October 2005) Looking for someone to practice with, Lee thought Hendrix a perfect fit: ""I was just happy I wasn't the worst guitar player in Nashville."" As it turned out, Hendrix had been playing a very mediocre guitar and even worse amplifier. Lee encountered Hendrix a few weeks later and was thunderstruck. Jimi had acquired a new guitar, ""and man did he surprise me! His ideas were different from other players-but he was good! Once he got that guitar, he was always great."" The pair played together with Joe Fisher and the Barnevilles and other acts (including the King Kasuals with Billy Cox). In late 1963, the pair parted: Jimi for the East Coast and Lee was drafted into the Army and spent some time in Vietnam where he was wounded. Lee hadn't been discharged for more than two weeks in mid July 1969, when he received a call from Billy Cox asking him to come and play with Jimi and him. Jimi was then forming a new group to replace the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Lee accepted the invitation, and he, together with Cox on bass, Mitch Mitchell on drums, Juma Sultan on percussion and Jerry Velez on congas, formed The Gypsy Sun & Rainbows. They spent the balance of July and early August rehearsing at an eight-bedroom house that Hendrix's management had rented for him for the summer near Shokan, New York. Hendrix most famously performed at Woodstock on August 18, 1969. The combo only performed again live once, at a street festival in Harlem in September 1969 before disbanding. The same month, Lee left New York for Memphis where he established himself as a session guitarist and band director, most notably for Al Green's touring band appearing on Johnny Carson and television specials worldwide. Provenance: Lawrence Lee 1943-2007; Lee Family; Sotheby's, New York, December 17, 1991, Lot 461A (with original copy of the auction catalog included). The stash bag was part of a larger collection of Hendrix memorabilia obtained by Lee during the 1960s. Images and copies of the other pieces in the collection are included for reference. "

All folded in original brown printed envelopes. 14 maps of the 25-map series published between 1966 and 1971, including the complete set of the first 13 maps. Many photomaps based on aerial reconaissance and photomosaics, showing geological or geochemical information. Some sheets include location diagrams, text, notes, cross sections, charts, index map, and insets. The mapped resources also concern ancient gold mines. Among the credited cartographers are some Arabian scientists, but mainly Americans: James Mytton, Robert F. Johnson, Virgil A. Trent, C. W. Smith, J. Kouther, M. Q. Asad, Gerrit Eijkelboom, Mohammed Gendi, Bernard Henry, Xavier Leca, Mohammed Shanti, Phillippe Delange, and Jean Pflaum. Abdullah O. Ankary contributed to the text of several maps, and much of the geology is based on work done in the 1950s and early 1960s by Glen F. Brown, one of the pioneers of the partnership between the U.S. Geological Survey and the Saudi government which began in the 1940s, spanned the next five decades and played such an important role in the development of the kingdom. Also, the map and envelope design closely match that of the geological maps of Saudi Arabia issued by the USGS since the 1950s. - Perfectly preserved.

Omar Bradley's decision to commit the airborne troops and the other units to the defense of Bastogne.During the first week of the Battle of the Bulge, on December 22, 1944, General Anthony C. McAuliffe, acting Commander of the 101st Airborne Division, issued his famous reply of ?Nuts!? to German General von Lüttwitz who demanded that he surrender. The 101st was able to hold off the Germans until reinforcements arrived on December 26th. For his actions at Bastogne, on December 30, 1944, Gen. McAuliffe was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross by General George S. Patton, Jr.In ""The Patton Papers,"" Volume 2, Gen. Patton wrote, ""I told [Gen. Troy] Middleton to give ground and blow up bridges so that we can get the enemy further extended before we hit him in flank. However, on Bradley's suggestion, in which Middleton strongly concurred, we decided to hang on to Bastogne ... This decision committed the airborne troops and the other units to their heroic defense of Bastogne, where Anthony McAuliffe, in temporary command of the 101st while [Gen.] Maxwell Taylor was in the United States, would respond to the German ultimatum to surrender with his famous 'Nuts.'""Letters concerning the ""Nuts!"" incident rarely come on the market.

My son still cherishes his merit badges and the skills which they represent. He loves the outdoors, is accomplished in woodcraft and camping and appreciative of nature. All this he learned as a Scout, and I have learned much from him. Of course, he is also a clean liver with high moral principles."""

Octavo; green cloth with titles stamped in silver on spine; 210pp. Fine in Near Fine, unclipped dustjacket, with the 21s. price unclipped. The book is in flawless shape, without a hint of the usual foxing and toning to the text. Nearly every copy of the British edition we have seen has been uniformly faded to some degree, which is not the case with this copy. Aside from a single quarter inch tear at the upper corner of the front flap and some trivial rubbing at the edges, a stunning example of the Lawrence Edwards designed jacket. A science fiction highspot, and a cornerstone title in the author's canon. Basis for the Ridley Scott's 1982 film 'Blade Runner,' starring Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer. Levack 12f.
