        Check made out to Jimi Hendrix

      New York, 1969. unbound. Original "Are You Experienced, Ltd." check, July 21, 1969 (3 weeks before Woodstock), 3 x 8 inches, made out to Jimi Hendrix for the sum of $300.00 and signed by the following individuals on the back: Michael Jeffery (endorsing the check for Hendrix by signing the guitarist's name; he was best known as the business manager of Jimi Hendrix and the person credited with coining the phrase "Are You Experienced," culminating into the group's name "The Jimi Hendrix Experience." He died in a mid-air collision over Nantes, France, whilst a passenger aboard an Iberia DC-9 Airliner. In later years he has been at the center of controversy due to allegations that he confessed to a "roadie" to having murdered Hendrix); Bob Levine (the U.S. Manager of Jimi Hendrix and the person who negotiated the contract with Michael Lang, guaranteeing Hendrix would be the highest paid performer at Woodstock. It was also through his shrewd business decorum that he was able to arrange that Hendrix would close the show on the final day of the festival); Gerard "Jerry" Guida (personal friend, musical collaborator, and inventor of hybrid musical instruments with Hendrix. He was the genius behind the Gerard Hammond B-3 organ and was a constant presence at sessions held at Electric Lady Studios. There is currently a fantastic photograph of Levine, Guida and Hendrix at Electric Lady, a memento from the night that Hendrix asked Gerard to put a wha-wha peddle and an Echo Plex on to his Hammond). Though this check is not signed by Hendrix, it is still of great historical significance. In addition to the reasons/people mentioned above, Hendrix disbanded the corporation "Are You Experienced" soon after Woodstock and died within a year. Near fine condition.

        Arithmetices Principia Nova Methodo Exposita. [Bound with five other works by Peano, see below].Turin: Bocca Brothers, 1889.

      An important sammelband of six Peano first editions, with the finest possible provenance - these are the copies of Gottlob Frege, the founder of modern mathematical logic. The volume includes Peano's rare and most important work, <i>Arithmetices Principia</i>, which contains the first statement of the famous 'Peano axioms' for the natural numbers and which remains of seminal importance to mathematics and mathematical logic. "Peano's most important contribution to the development of the theory and practice of the axiomatic method was his system of axioms for the arithmetic of the natural numbers... On the basis of his axiomatization, Peano constructed the entire theory of natural numbers. In particular, he showed how the elementary theorems of arithmetic can be obtained from his axioms" (Styazhkin, <i>History of Mathematical Logic from Leibniz to Peano</i>, 1969, pp. 278-9).<br/><br/> <i>Provenance:</i>"Gottlob Frege (1848-1925), German mathematician and logician, founded modern mathematical logic. Working on the borderline between philosophy and mathematics, Frege discovered, on his own, the fundamental ideas that have made possible the whole modern development of logic and thereby invented an entire discipline" (Britannica). Frege published his famous <i>Begriffsschrift</i> in 1879, but whereas Frege "met with general incomprehension" (<i>The Encyclopedia of Philosophy</i> III, 225), "in using a notation at least as rigorous as those of C. S. Peirce and Gottlob Frege, and more comprehensive and expedient than theirs, Peano's work marked a transition from the old algebra of logic to contemporary methods. His notation is still in use, mainly through its adoption by Russell and Whitehead in <i>Principia Mathematica</i>" (<i>op cit</i>., VI, 67). This wider use of Peano's notation was resented by Frege, who wrote an embittered reply to his successful rival in <i>Ueber die Begriffsschrift des Herrn Peano und meine eigene</i> in 1897. Frege's work heavily influenced the Vienna Circle, a group of like-minded scientist and philosophers based in Vienna that advanced an applied logical positivism. Jørgen Jørgensen (1894-1969), professor of philosophy at the University of Copenhagen and the leading figure of logical positivism in Denmark, was associated with the Vienna Circle and would most likely have been corresponding with Frege when authoring his three-volume <i>Treatise on Formal Logic</i> (1931). The volume has the rubber stamp of Gottlob Frege to the title page of the first paper, the signature of Jørgen Jørgensen to the front free end-paper, and the stamp of the department at which Jørgensen worked at. The volume was acquired from a professor at the same department who authored several works on Jørgen Jørgensen and was given part of his library.<br/><br/> "... with the publication of <i>Arithmetices principia, nova methodo exposita</i>, Peano not only improved his logical symbolism but also used his new method to achieve important new results in mathematics; this short booklet contains Peano's first statement of his famous postulates for the natural numbers, perhaps the best known of all his creations. His research was done independently of the work of Dedekind, who the previous year had published an analysis of the natural numbers, which was essentially that of Peano but without the clarity of Peano. (This work was the only work Peano wrote in Latin.). <i>Arithmetices principia</i> made important innovations in logical notation, such as &isin; for set membership and a new notation for universal quantification. Indeed, much of Peano's notation found its way, either directly or in a somewhat modified form, into mid-twentieth-century logic" (DSB). <br/><br/> "Written in Latin, this small book was Peano's first attempt at an axiomatization of mathematics in a symbolic language... after having introduced logical notations and formulas, Peano undertakes to rewrite arithmetic in symbolic notation. But he aspires to more than just the provision of a correct logical foundation for arithmetic: the book deals also with fractions, real numbers, and even the notion of limit and definitions in point-set theory... The initial arithmetic notions are 'number,' 'one,' 'successor' and 'is equal to,' and nine axioms are stated concerning these notions. Today we would consider that Axioms 2, 3, 4 and 5, which deal with identity, belong to the underlying logic. That leaves the five axioms that have become universally known as 'the Peano axioms'... The ease with which we read Peano's booklet today shows how much of his notation has found its way, either directly or in a somewhat modified form, into contemporary logic" (van Heijenoort, pp. 83-4). Peano's axioms were subsequently modified and republished by their creator in the five successive versions of his <i>Formulaire</i> and finally perfected in Whitehead and Russell's <i>Principia Mathematica</i>.<br/><br/> That this pamphlet was written Latin reveals a concern of Peano's: international accessibility. It was so important to him that he later devoted much of his time to the cause of the auxiliary international language, Interlingua. "In his mathematical writing, addressed to mathematicians at large, Peano changed over early on from his own language of Italian to French, which is more widely known; but even French is not fully international, and he looked back with regret to the time, not so very distant, when Latin had been the universal language of scholars" (Kneebone, <i>Mathematical Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics</i>, 1963, p. 149). <br/><br/> The remaining five works contained in the present volume are as follows: <br/><br/> <i>Calcolo Geometrico secondo l'Ausdehnungslehre di H. Grassmann. Preceduto dalle Operazioni della logica deduttiva</i>. Turin: Bocca Brothers, 1888. 8vo, pp. x, [ii], 170, [2]. "Peano's first publication in logic was a twenty-page preliminary section on the operations of deductive logic in <i>Calcolo Geometrico secondo l'Ausdehnungslehre di H. Grassmann</i> (1888)" (DSB). "Peano had [in <i>Calcolo Geometrico</i>] used the logic of Boole and Schröder in mathematical investigations and introduced into it a number of innovations that marked a definite advance upon the work of his predecessors: for instance, the use of different signs for logical and mathematical operations, and a distinction between categorical and conditional propositions that was to lead him to quantification theory" (van Heijenoort, p. 83). The remainder of the work is a development of Hermann Grassmann's <i>Ausdehnungslehre</i>, first published in 1844, which had introduced a novel algebra of geometrical quantities which pre-figures modern vector algebra. Peano treated vector analysis as well as vector algebra, including vector derivatives and integrals, and vector spaces, although he omits the vector product (which Grassmann had called 'outer multiplication'). Peano followed a more axiomatic style than had Grassmann, and his presentation was a model of clarity, in contract to Grassmann's which was notoriously obscure. <br/><br/> <i>I Principii di Geometria Logicamente Esposti</i>. Turin: Bocca Brothers, 1889. 8vo, pp. 40. In this treatise, Peano began his effort to apply the axiomatic method to geometry. In 1882 Moritz Pasch had "tried to erect a purely deductive, non-conceptual structure... Peano went a step further [in the present work] by not only proceeding from a strictly limited number of geometrical terms, but also creating an artificial language as a way of controlling the logical content of theory. It was under the influence of his ideas that Russell abandoned the kind of work found in his early Essay, and moved on towards the logicism of <i>Principia mathematica</i>" (<i>Companion Encyclopedia of the History and Philosophy of the Mathematical Sciences</i>, p. 918). "This study was a valuable contribution to the clarifying of Euclidean geometry which was to lead to a large body of work by himself and some of his followers and to culminate in Hilbert's famous essay of 1899 [<i>Grundlagen der Geometrie</i>]" (Grattan-Guiness, <i>The Search for Mathematical Roots 1870-1940</i>, 2000, p. 229). <br/><br/> <i>Gli Elementi di Calcolo Geometrico</i>. Turin: G. Candeletti, 1891. 8vo, pp. 42, [2]. A further development of the ideas in Grassmann's <i>Ausdehnungslehre</i>.<br/><br/> <i>Notations de Logique Mathématique... Introduction au Formulaire de Mathématique publié par "Rivista di Mathematica."</i> Turin: n.p. [C. Guadagnini], 1894. 8vo, pp. 52. Offprint from <i>Rivista di Matematica</i>, vol. 1. This work serves as an introduction to Peano's famous <i>Formulario</i> project, the first edition of which was published the following year. "In 1891 Peano founded the journal <i>Rivista di Mathematica</i>, which continued publication until 1906. In the journal were published the results of his research and that of his followers, in logic and the foundations of mathematics. In 1892 he announced in the <i>Rivista</i> the <i>Formulario</i> project, which was to take much of his mathematical and editorial energies for the next sixteen years" (DSB). Peano "was interested primarily in the clear presentation of mathematical results, and it was for this purpose, rather than philosophical analysis, that he composed his <i>Notations de Logique Mathématique</i> in 1894" (Kneale & Kneale, <i>The Development of Logic</i>, 1962, p. 473). <br/><br/> <i>Saggio di Calcolo Geometrico</i>. Turin: Carlo Clausen, 1896. 8vo, pp. 26. Offprint from <i>Accademia Reale delle Scienze di Torino</i>, 1895-6. <br/><br/> Giuseppe Peano (1858-1932) "became a lecturer of infinitesimal calculus at the University of Turin in 1884 and a professor in 1890. He also held the post of professor at the <i>Academia Militare</i> in Turin from 1886 to 1901. Peano made several important discoveries, including a continuous mapping of a line onto every point of a square, that were highly counterintuitive and convinced him that mathematics should be developed formally if mistakes were to be avoided. His <i>Formulaire de mathématiques</i> (Italian <i>Formulario mathematico</i>, "Mathematical Formulary"), published from 1894 to 1908 with collaborators, was intended to develop mathematics in its entirety from its fundamental postulates, using Peano's logical notation and his simplified international language... Peano is also known as the creator of <i>Latino sine Flexione</i>, an artificial language later called Interlingua. Based on a synthesis of Latin, French, German, and English vocabularies, with a greatly simplified grammar, Interlingua was intended for use as an international auxiliary language. Peano compiled a <i>Vocabulario de Interlingua</i> (1915) and was for a time president of the Academia pro Interlingua" (Britannica). <br/><br/> All of these pamphlets are rare. COPAC lists only the Cambridge copy of <i>Arithmetices Principia</i>, and we have located no copy in auction records. DSB X: 442; Jean van Heijenoort: <i>From Frege to Gödel. A Source Book in Mathematical Logic, 1879-1931</i> (this work contains an English translation, with introduction, of the <i>Arithmetices Principia</i> - the second work in the collection, after Frege's <i>Begriffsschrift</i>).. 8vo (226 x 152 mm), pp. [xvi], 20, bound in one fine contemporary patterned paper-covered boards with vellum corners and capitals and gilt title-label to spine, manuscript numbering to spine (probably an index for Frege's library)

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

      the artist 1969-1970, Oakland, CA - 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]."

        Joan of Arc

      New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1969. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. Lauren Ford. This interesting little book is excerpted from Churchill&#39;s A History of the English-Speaking Peoples. It is scarce and thus missing from many collections. Many of the copies that do come on the market are ex-library with attendant flaws. This is a collector-worthy copy. It is NOT ex-library, but instead truly fine in a very good plus dust jacket. The white cloth binding of this edition proved quite susceptible to soiling and signs of use. Here the binding is immaculate - square and tight with sharp corners, bright gilt, and no soiling or wear. The contents are likewise pristine - crisp and bright with no previous ownership markings or spotting. The book feels unread. Even the text block edges are bright and clean. The dust jacket is unusually clean and complete, with no losses or tears. Moreover, it is unclipped, still bearing the original $3.50 price on the front flap. The only thing keeping this dust jacket from being truly fine is light wear to the spine, primarily at the ends, and fractional wear at the corners. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A279, Woods/ICS A138(j), Langworth p.334.

        Joan of Arc, very rare binding anomaly bearing two original sketches and signatures by illustrator Lauren Ford

      New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, 1969. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. Lauren Ford. First edition, first and only impression. This is as singular a copy as a collector could have, BEARING TWO ORIGINAL SKETCHES AND SIGNATURES BY LAUREN FORD ON THE ENDPAPERS AND BEING A POSSIBLY UNIQUE BINDING ANOMALY. Please read the full listing description for details. Fine condition in a very good dust jacket. This extremely rare little book is excerpted from Churchill&#146;s A History of the English-Speaking Peoples. It is missing from many collections owing to extreme scarcity and many of the copies that do come on the market are ex-library with attendant flaws. This truly fine copy is not ex-library - and has very rare attributes. First, there are two original ink drawings by the illustrator Lauren Ford. As noted by Churchill Bibliographer Ronald Cohen (p.1023) "Some copies are known with the signature of and sketches by the illustrator, Lauren Ford, on the front free endpaper. These are very scarce." This copy bears sketches and signatures on both the front and rear endpapers. Making the book even more special, the binding is upside down; the front cover&#39;s gold fleur de lis appears upside down on the rear board instead and the spine lettering reads up instead of down. Condition is excellent. The white linen boards are bright and clean with no soiling, bright gilt, and sharp corners. The contents are pristine save for, of course, the drawings by the illustrator and a gold bookshop stamp at the bottom of the title page "...the little art shop of the Benedictine monastery of Regina Laudis Bethlehem, Conn". There is a small colored ink head and shoulders portrait of a woman on the ffep with "Lauren Ford" written in black script below. There is a small colored ink profile of a boy on the rear endpaper, also with "Lauren Ford" written in black script lower on the page. Both drawings are done in the same style as the illustrations in the book. Futher, an undated but clearly vintage note accompanies the book stating: "Lauren Ford, the artist, has especially autographed and done an original drawing in "Joan of Arc" for us to give as a remembrance." The note is on the letterhead of The Queen Elizabeth Hotel of Montreal and has clearly been folded and kept within the book for some time, as the edges that protruded from the book are slightly yellowed. The dust jacket is clipped with good color and only light wear. What an unusual example for collectors. The binding mistake alone makes this copy a prize. The addition of original drawings by the artist makes it truly unique. Dust jacket protected in a removable archival mylar cover. Additonal images available upon request.

        A Collection of 81 Different 1960s Hippie Photographs

      A collection of mostly counterculture related photographs circa 1969 by a little-known young Baltimore photographer. A few are signed with a Baltimore address. 81 prints. All but one are in black and white. A small crease to the corner of one image, a few small spots on another, and light foxing on a few of the cardboard mounts, but the condition is generally fine. The images break down into the following groups: 1. Thirty-seven large images mounted on oversize cardboard prepared for an exhibition. Subjects include nude hippie chicks (some with body paint), an Allen Ginsberg poetry reading, bikers, a couple of variations on a cemetery, and an outdoor concert (possibly Woodstock); 2. Thirteen larger unmounted images, subjects include nude hippie chicks (more with body paint), pot smokers, and rock and roll and bluegrass bands; 3. Thirteen smaller images mounted on cardboard for exhibition, all of Frank Zappa and his band; and 4. Eighteen smaller images, unmounted, subjects include nude hippie chicks (still more with body paint: apparently there was a sale), rock bands, and Sikhs. Anecdotally, we understand that the photographer later decided to adopt a Sikh philosophy and lifestyle. Not overly distinguished as fine art photography, but a reasonably serious, interesting, and pleasingly typical collection of photographs devoted overwhelmingly to the hippie era. .

      New York: Random House. F/F. 1969. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 6916414 . Signed and numbered by the author on the limitation page. Fine, clean, straight book that is very tight and apparently unread, bound in ivory colored rough weave cloth with gold gilt printing on the front and spine and publisher&#39;s red upper page edges, in a Fine, clean and undamaged dustjacket (no flap data and unpriced at publisher&#39;s wish) of a yellowish-tan color with small decorative threads woven throughout the paper. The book is housed in publisher&#39;s light red paper-covered boards slipcase that is in Very Good+ condition with the limitation number written in ink at the lower spine end, a shadow from a (probably) very small price sticker at the upper right corner, and some small nicks in the paper at the opening of the slipcase. It is structurally very sound; just has a few cosmetic problems. The classic tale of a repressed and imaginative young man who has vivid sexual fantasies and adventures, all ruined by feelings of shame and fear of retribution instilled in him by his parents. Made into a memorable movie in 1972, with Richard Benjamin playing the part of Alexander Portnoy. Similar themes to Roth&#39;s &#39;Goodbye, Columbus&#39; - but perhaps that&#39;s partially because Richard Benjamin also starred in that movie and left an indelible impression of an angst-ridden young man. ; Signed by Author .

        The Romantic Manifesto: A Philosophy of Literature

      New York: The World Publishing Company, 1969. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed and dated in 1970 by the author. Fine in an excellent price-clipped dust jacket that shows light wear to the extremities. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare signed and inscribed. Ayn Rand argues that objective standards in art are possible because art is not a subjective luxury, but rather a critical need of human life&#151;not a material need, but a need of man&#39;s rational mind, the faculty on which his material survival depends. The Romantic Manifesto takes its place beside The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged as one of the most important achievements of our time.

        The Lords / Notes on Vision

      Private Printing (c.1969), [Los Angeles] - [the portfolio shows some modest wear at the extremities, and bears a few external scuff marks (or finger-smudges); the printed sheets themselves are in pristine condition]. The ultra-rare original printing of Morrison's first self-published work, sometimes referred to as a "book of poems," although I can't quite fathom why, because it's pretty obvious that (a) it's not a book, and (b) it's mostly not poetry. It is, rather, a portfolio containing 82 unbound sheets, upon which are printed (rectos only) Morrison's ruminations on (mostly) the cinema. These "eyeball-slashing thoughts on film," as one Morrison biographer called them, came from the notebooks he kept during his time (1964-1965) at UCLA's film school, which is incidentally where he met future Doors co-founder and bandmate Ray Manzarek. "The Lords" was privately printed at Western Lithographers in L.A. in an edition of just 100 copies, as was the roughly-concurrently-issued "The New Creatures" (which actually *is* a "book of poetry"); both were finished and ready for distribution (if that's the word) in May 1969. At that moment The Doors were enmeshed in the aftermath of their notorious March 1st concert in Miami, including a felony charge against Morrison for "lewd and lascivious behavior," and their scheduled tour had been cancelled. Morrison was back in L.A., free on bail, and free, also, to concentrate on writing, completing his film "Feast of Friends," and putting the finishing touches on his self-publishing ventures. One Morrison biographer states that the printed copies of "Lords" were "stacked in a corner by Jim's desk [at The Doors' office on Santa Monica Blvd.] and were given away to friends and fans." This is corroborated by Los Angeles poet Michael C Ford, from whose collection this particular copy comes; Ford, who had first met Morrison at UCLA, remembers "hanging around the office" one day, and being handed this portfolio by Jim himself. Queried about the unusual format, Jim said that he "wanted it to look like an attache case -- like something a foreign correspondent would have." Around that same time (the end of May 1969), Ford took part in a poetry reading at the Cinematheque 16 screening room in Hollywood, held in conjunction with a private screening of "Feast of Friends," on which occasion Morrison gave one of the earliest readings of his long poem "An American Prayer." (Michael McClure, Seymour Cassel, Mary Woronov and others also read from their work at the same event.) *** All 82 leaves are present, each bearing the legend at the bottom: "Copyright: JAMES DOUGLAS MORRISON 1969 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED." The portfolio is accompanied by a copy of the April 1968 issue of "Eye" magazine (Vol. 1, No. 2), also from Ford's collection, containing a lengthy profile of Morrison by Digby Diehl. Published at a time when Morrison had already become notorious for his on-stage antics, it was probably the most sympathetic and insightful treatment he'd yet been accorded by a mainstream publication, and it can also be said to have planted the seed for the publication of his poetry: it was this article that was read by poet/playwright Michael McClure, who was impressed by Morrison "discussing the concept of evil in a way that made me feel we shared some insights" and subsequently arranged to meet him in New York, where McClure's controversial play "The Beard" was then running. He then visited Morrison in London in October, following the conclusion of The Doors' first European tour; while "poking around [Morrison's] apartment looking for something to read," he recalled, he "found Jim's poetry manuscript [and] sat down and read it and thought, holy smoke, this is fantastic." It was at McClure's suggestion that Morrison decided to go the self-publication route, and it was McClure who later put copies of the two private printings into the hands of his agent, who passed them along to an editor at Simon & Schuster, which published them in a combined volume in April 1970 as "Th [Attributes: First Edition]
