        Buzz Aldrin's gold plated sun visor reflects the Lunar Module reflected in his gold-plated visor, Apollo 11.

      20 July 1969 - Large-format vintage chromogenic print, 20.2 x 25.3 cm, on "A Kodak", [NASA negative number AS11-40-5903]. The most iconic picture taken on the Apollo 11 Mission. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, lunar module pilot, stands in a crater as Neil Armstrong takes his photograph using a camera strapped to his chest. We see not only Apollo 11 reflected in Aldrin's visor, but also Neil Armstrong himself. This makes this photograph especially interesting - Neil Armstrong took all the photos thus Aldrin is invariably the subject, not Armstrong, the mission commander and the first man to step onto the moon. "Apollo 11 on the Moon - Astronaut Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., lunarmodule pilot, walks on the surface of the Moon near the leg of the Lunar Module during the Apollo 11 extravehicular activity. Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, commander, took this photograph with a 70 mm lunar surface camera" (Text on the reverse).

        The White Stones [doubly inscribed by the poet]

      Lincoln: Grosseteste Press, 1969 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. pp 96 [2] The limited first edition of Jeremy Prynne's fifth volume of verse which is twice inscribed by the author to one of his closest friends. The first inscription in Prynne's faintly calligraphic hand appears on the half title: 'For Tony & Nicole back from the wilds with love Jeremy'. Tony is the novelist Anthony Ward who was a Cambridge contemporary and fellow member of the Prospect group. Ward inherited the editorship of Prospect Magazine from Elaine Feinstein and handed it on to Prynne himself. The poet has added a secondary inscription to the dedication page below the printed dedication 'for Sue' where he has written: '& for Anthony Ward to be read by chance', making this in effect a secondary dedication copy. (Ward had published his own 'May Day: A Letter for Jeremy Prynne' in the The English Intelligencer in 1967) This is number 44 of 477 copies of this volume (numbered in Prynne's hand) which was printed by the Grosseteste Press. There is some old staining to the rear cover of the book, possibly caused by damp. Otherwise about very good if slightly cocked. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about this book..

      Budapest: Corvina Press, 1969. First Hungarian Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the first Hungarian edition, first printing (some toning to the board edges, a few tiny marks to the front board's bottom, two neat notes in light pencil ascribing authorship of two items in the book to Asturias), in a Very Good dust jacket (some sunning to the spine, two tiny closed edge tears, minor rubs and tiny chips), SIGNED, INSCRIBED, PLACED, AND DATED BY MIGUEL ANGEL ASTURIAS on the half-title, and SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA on a slip of paper affixed to the half-title, and FURTHER SIGNED BY renowned American expatriate performer JOSEPHINE BAKER, American Violinist RUGGIERO RICCI, Hungarian American Film Director KERTESZ MIHALY (a/k/a MICHAEL CURTIZ; a/k/a Michael Kertész), Swiss physicist, inventor, and explorer AUGUSTE PICCARD, three-time Olympic Champion Norwegian figure skater and film star SONJA HENIE, French actress and singer DANIELLE DARRIEUX -- who appeared in more than 110 films and who is considered to be one of France's greatest movie stars, Hungarian American dramatist and novelist FERENC MOLNAR, Cuban World Chess Champion J. R. CAPABLANCA (José Raúl Capablanca y Graupera), and three others that we have not yet identified, on page 61. (Sonja Henie and Josephine Baker are mentioned in the book, with Henie's last name misspelled "Hennie".) Miguel Angel Asturias won the 1967 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his vivid literary achievement, deep-rooted in the national traits and traditions of Indian peoples of Latin America", and Pablo Neruda won the 1971 Nobel Prize in Literature for "a poetry that with the action of an elemental force brings alive a continent's destiny and dreams". [Noted Hungarian American Film Director Michael Curtiz directed The Sea Wolf (1941), Casablanca (1942), Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942), Life With Father (1947), White Christmas (1954), King Creole (1958) and many other films.] The book was born of a trip through Hungary by the Nerudas and the Asturiases who were first inspired to write it upon seeing and enjoying dinner on the couples' first night in Hungary. Neruda thought that the food deserved a Poem and Asturias an Essay. The idea for the book evolved as they spent several weeks together traveling through Hungary and the Preface was provided by Hungarian Author Iván Boldizsár who, in the company of the Nerudas and Asturiases, enjoyed many of the meals that inspired the book. As Asturias placed his inscription in Paris, the prior owner presumably obtained the other signatures in that food capital as well. A notable book co-written by two winners of the Nobel Prize in Literature with the signatures of the authors to the half-title, also signed by JOSEPHINE BAKER, RUGGIERO RICCI, KERTESZ MIHALY / MICHAEL CURTIZ, AUGUSTE PICCARD, SONJA HENIE, DANIELLE DARRIEUX, FERENC MOLNAR, J. R. CAPABLANCA and others, and RARE INDEED.

        Brian Flanagan For Sheriff Watch Him Run

      N.p. [Chicago: 1969]. Brian Flanagan (b. 1946) was a member of both SDS and the Weathermen, and directly connected to the fatal Greenwich Village apartment explosion in which three Weathermen were killed while preparing for a bomb attack on Fort Dix (Flanagan had reputedly left the apartment briefly for more supplies). This extremely rare poster promotes Flanagan's parodic write-in campaign for Mayor of Chicago during the Days of Rage. Following a fateful run-in with City Attorney Richard Elrod on the streets of Chicago, in which Elrod was left with a broken neck and partial paralysis, Flanagan was tried for attempted murder and inciting mayhem. He was eventually acquitted on all charges, but the case became a cause celebre for the Weathermen and other radical left groups. An extremely ephemeral piece, likely produced in tiny quantities and posted even less. Original silk-screened poster in three colors, 23" x 29". Browned at margins, but image area bright and clean. Archivally hinged to acid-free backing, in gallery frame.

        [Fifteen drawings in charcoal and three in pastels by the Black Panther amateur artist]

      Oakland, CA: the artist, 1969-1970. 18 works on sheets of paper ranging from 17x19 to 18x24 inches, together with a brief autobiographical statement by the artist printed out and signed in 2007. Several of the pieces bear a pen notation next to the signature indicating that these works were done for the Romeo Yarborough defense appeal. Two drawings are photographed here; please contact us for images of the additional pieces. Yarborough states that he joined the Black Panther Party in 1968. According to a brief biography posted on the site of the University of Delaware Library?'s Special Collections, Yarborough attended a Black Studies Fine Arts program at the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1969, a year after joining the Black Panthers. Some of these works appear to be class exercises, such as depictions of hands in various poses, but others reflect a more individual vision, the majority of them featuring nude Black women. Those that are dated all fall between 1969 and 1970. We are unable to find any information about a Yarborough defense appeal during this period; it certainly was not a major Panther case, if indeed it had any connection to the Panthers. As for Yarborough?'s own connection to the Panthers, his brief statement included here (printed out from a computer in 2007, with tape at both ends and a signature at the bottom) hints at how it began, noting that he had grown up in Bobby Seale?'s neighborhood. ?"Joined Panthers 1968. Cowrie shells are African wampum. Gold chain / $ blinded by money. Netting… Black man was the catch. He trapped his own self. Black Panthers had shootout on Myrtle St… cops wiping them out, Bobby Hutton died [Hilliard Cleaver]. Roger came to see what was going on. Pimp until that day.?" The Myrtle Street reference is to the April 6, 1968 shootout in Oakland. On the back of another painting held by the University of Delaware, Yarborough wrote ?"This painting is better as is most of my work when viewed in a ?'black light?' lighting situation. My work stands out best in the dark or the blackness of night! Like the panther I am ivisible [sic] in darkness but my spirit is luminess [sic].?"
