        Ode to LA while thinking of Brian Jones, deceased

      Los Angeles; Western Lithograph Co. [?] for J.D.Morrison. [July] 1969, 1969. FIRST EDITION (and the only separate edition). 500 copies only, privately distributed to concert-goers. Bifolium, 4-page pamphlet, (unpaginated). Pale yellow textured paper, printed in dark green, unbound as issued. Approx. dimensions 9.5 x 6 inches. With Linweave Textra watermark, 'Made in USA'. A near fine copy, with soft vertical fold and annotations to rear from original owner listing the The Doors' opening songs that evening 'Back Door Man / Break on Through / Soul Kitchen.' The third of four self-published poetry titles by Jim Morrison [1943-1971], after 'The Lords: Notes on Vision' (April 1969), 'The New Creatures' (April 1969), and followed by 'An American Prayer' (1970), and is his only work that was devoted to a single poem. The edition comprised 'vermutlich 500' copies (Gerstenmeyer), which were handed out at the two performances The Doors gave at the Aquarius Theatre, Hollywood (both 21st July 1969). By one account the theatre floor was littered with these leaflets after the show (Humphreys), so most would have been swept up and thrown out with the garbage; in fact the present copy only escaped as it's recipient tossed it in her handbag instead of the floor. Extremely scarce thus. 'Brian Jones' is a chilling meditation on the recent death of Lewis Brian Hopkin-Jones (Brian Jones) [1942-1969], founder and deposed leader of the Rolling Stones' and the 'first martyr of rock and roll', who, two weeks earlier, had been found dead in his swimming pool at Cotchford Farm, Sussex, former home of A.A.Milne. The circumstances of his death remain one of rock's greatest mysteries. Two years later, aged 27 (the same age as Jones lived to), Morrison himself would become an infamous rock'n'roll fatality. Heinz Gerstenmeyer; The Doors [No.4], Kerry Humphreys; The Doors Collector Magazine 'most fans trashed their gift without even reading it... many who attended confirm that these sheets littered the floor and filled almost every trash bin'. PROVENANCE; Originally the property of Michelle Straubing, attendee and journalist for 'Creem' music magazine.

        Apollo 11 Mission Control Commentary of the First Lunar Landing and the First Moon Walk

      [Houston: Control Center, 20 July 1969]. 2 parts, 4to, pp. 295/2-313/1; 330/2-347/1; together 54 pp., in two blue cloth folding boxes, titled on the spines Ò Moon LandingÓ and ÒFirst Steps on the MoonÓ. First issues of these press releases handed out in Houston at the time of the landing, comprising transcripts prepared by NASA from the Mission tapes. Obviously, these were produced in some significant quantity but they are and always have been very scarce on the market. Anecdotally, the bookseller John Jenkins went to Houston and collected as many of these as he could, for which he then had matching boxes made. Since 1971, we have seen three sets, all in identical boxes, and as far as is known they have not been reproduced since. The content is, of course, the stuff of legends: ÒThe Eagle has landedÓ and ÒThatÕs one small step for man. One giant leap for mankind.Ó and so on -- material to recall one of the greatest moments in human achievement. Only once copy, identical to this one, has sold at auction, at ChristieÕs on Dec. 13, 2006 (Monuments of Science) lot 150: estimated at £1000-1500 and sold for £3000.

        Neil Armstrong Signature with two photos matted and framed

      This signature of Neil Armstrong comes with two photos of Armstrong, one taken at NASA and the other is purportedly the only NASA image of Armstrong facing the camera during his walk on the moon. This horizontal piece measures 28 inches wide by 15 inches tall with a custom black wood frame. On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first of twelve human beings to walk on the moon. He has historically downplayed his notoriety and the significance of his feat. In the years since his moonwalk he has become a reluctant signer of his name. Non-commissioned signed material has become increasing rare. .

      New York: Delacorte Press, (1969). First Edition. hardcover. Fine, tight copy in a beautiful dustwrapper with none of the tanning or darkening normally associated with this title. Other than a touch of very light wrinkling to the spine head and a brief 1/2" closed tear to the bottom of the front panel, the dustwrapper is as close to new as one could hope for. A gorgeous copy, and uncommon as such. Vonnegut’s masterpiece, a classic of time travel, metaphysics, and the immorality of war. “It sounds like a fantastic last-ditch effort to make sense of a lunatic universe. But there is so much more to this book. It is very tough and very funny; it is sad and delightful; and it works.” —New York Times

The text reads: "Charles Bukowski will give his first public demolition poetry reading at the Bridge," along with the address and dates. Accompanied by a handwritten letter dated 1994 from Bukowski's bibliographer, Sanford Durbin, describing in detail how he acquired the poster at the time. In part: "At intermission I went out in the alley to pee; as I walked back in I saw someone peeing under a light; it was Hank. He looked at me & said kinda wimpy, 'Hi Neeli.' -- How many were there -- the Bridge, N. Kenmore? Maybe 50? A bar? a night spot? -- Maybe the sign was in front, maybe I saw it walking from the Bridge back to his place. On a utility pole. Sure I want it, down it came.

        Slaughterhouse Five or The Children's Crusade

      New York: Delacorte Press, 1969. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light toning to the spine. Boldly signed by Kurt Vonnegut. Housed in a custom quarter morocco clamshell box. A very sharp copy of this classic work. Slaughterhouse-Five, perhaps Vonnegut's most powerful novel, presents two characters who can see beneath the surface to the tragic realities of human history but make no attempt to bring about change… The central event is the destruction of Dresden by bombs and fire storm—a catastrophe that Vonnegut himself witnessed as a prisoner of war" (Vinson, 1414-15). "Kurt Vonnegut knows all the tricks of the writing game. So he has not even tried to describe the bombing. Instead he has written around it in a highly imaginative, often funny, nearly psychedelic story. The story is sandwiched between an autobiographical introduction and epilogue" (The New York Times).

        Presage No. XVI Vol. A: Surface Textures and Surface Tensions with Touch Appeal

      Liechtenstein: Egaserp Établissements, 1969. Very good in spiral-bound hand-painted Styrofoam and tinfoil boards, with a circular cutout on the front cover. Internal pages show varying signs of wear.. First Edition. Quarto. Installment of volume A, issue number XVI, of Presage Paris Fashion Forecast. A leading quarterly in haute couture from 1961 through 1987, Presage seamlessly combined art, fashion, and design in colorful issues on current trends, providing an alternative to the stark commercial fabric catalogues of the day. Created in Paris and marketed to an American audience, each issue sought to predict the season's styles through a selection of fabric swatches, photo illustrations, patterns, and fashion design sketches for men, women, and children. The staggering subscription fee of $750 abetted the journal's lavish production, which incorporated unusual materials such as foil, lace, styrofoam, and cloth, among other media, into its variously sparse, Pop, and postmodern designs. Under the leadership of designer Rosita Fanto, who directed the journal after its third issue, Presage also acted as a working tool for members of the specialized fashion industries; the typical volume was divided into six sections, devoted to distinct facets of the business and published under the titles Les Coloris (Color), Les Lainages (Wool), Les Tissés (Woven), Jersey Façonnes Dentelles (Jersey Brocade Lace), Les Imprimés (Print), and Sketch Future (Future Sketch). A noteworthy experiment in graphic design and book arts and important document of the evolution of late twentieth century fashion, the quarterly belongs to several museum and library collections, including the Yale University Library, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Centre Pompidou. This installment features 95 fashion design sketches and prints, and& 83 fabric swatches.

        Student Strike Archive

      (Waltham): Brandeis University. 1969. A collection of thirteen pieces pertaining to the week of January 12, 1969, when black students at Brandeis took over a building on campus and barricaded themselves in, and issued a list of 10 demands to be met by the university, most of them having to do with establishing a black studies program and seeking more black faculty members and greater recruitment of and scholarships for black students. A student newspaper on January 14 reports that white students went on strike in support of the black students, and included in this archive are several strike bulletins ["In view of the confusion...," "To the University Employees," "Crisis Bulletin 1/15/69," "Fight Racism," "The Demands are Just," "Academic Freedom for Whom?," "I, Sp/4 John Rollins, stand united..." and "Why Don't the President and the Faculty Talk About the Substance of the Black Students' Demands?"]; "Strike Daily One" and "Strike Daily Two," 11 x 17 folded sheets printed on both sides, making four pages, and dated January 15 and 16, respectively; "Brandeis Black Bulletin No. 2," another 11 x 17 folio, dated January 13 -- i.e., after the seizure but before the beginning of the strike; a reprint of an article by Jerry Farber entitled "The Student as Nigger;" the Brandeis newspaper "The Justice" from January 14; and a six-page mimeograph of the "Clarification of Black Student Demands." The Clarification lists the 10 original demands and specifies the details of each -- in effect, being a list of not just the 10 main demands but another 31 secondary demands. An interesting and detailed look at events of a particularly significant week in the history of Brandeis University, and a glimpse of student activism from a particularly volatile period of the 1960s: unrest among black students at Brandeis had begun in April of the previous year, after the assassination of Martin Luther King, and a number of demands were raised then, for a black studies department, more black students, etc. Frustration with the slow pace of change since April, and a conviction that the university administration was acting in bad faith and deliberately responding slowly, helped trigger the direct action taken by the students in seizing a campus building. The Brandeis action came in the wake of the student takeover of Columbia University in April, 1968; it anticipated, and probably helped inspire, the student takeover at Cornell University in April, 1969. Several items are folded and some have mild edge-sunning, one has an ink squiggle; on the whole the lot is very near fine. For all: .

Eshleman's signature on front flyleaf, with the notations: "NYC May 2, 1969/ Revisited Ypsilanti Nov. 1988." Also with Eshleman's notes throughout. An influential book: Snyder, a Pulitzer Prize winning poet, here presents essays and journal entries on spirituality and ecology -- "earth house hold" being a play on the roots words of ecology. A seminal text of the environmental movement and, in particular, the notion of Deep Ecology. Also a nice association copy between two prominent poets, one a Pulitzer Prize winner, the other a winner of the National Book Award for one of his books of translation. Both, in addition, have had an interest over the years in ethnopoetics, and in tribal and prehistoric arts and have broken new ground in bringing these subjects into the contemporary dialogue on poetry and art. A thread pulling at the spine cloth, a few small stains to covers; still a near fine copy in a near fine, foxed, parchment dust jacket, an unusual production. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Nixon, As Presidential Strategist, Justifies His Postal Reorganization As Not Pro-Union in a Letter to Ike's Conservative Brother

      Nixon, As Presidential Strategist, Justifies His Postal Reorganization As Not Pro-Union in a Letter to Ike's Conservative Brother.& In May 1969, four months after he became president, Richard Nixon asked Congress to pass a postal reform act calling for removal of the Postmaster General from the Cabinet and creation of a self-supporting postal corporation wholly owned by the federal government. No action was taken on the issue until March 1970 when there was an illegal postal workers strike called in response to the proposal and Nixon sent in troops and the National Guard to help deliver the mail. After the strike was settled in April, the administration introduced the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 to abolish the United States Post Office Department and creat the United States Postal Service, a corporation-like independent agency with an official monopoly on the delivery of mail in the United States. Nixon signed the law on August 12, 1970. & In the months leading up to passage, there were many voices raised in opposition. From the left, union leaders feared that the new corporation would be more resistant to working with them to meet worker's negotiating demands. From the right, critics worried that the new private corporation would have to recognize a postal labor union. This concern seemed to gain currency when the Postal Service was placed under the the Taft-Hartley Act, a law that greatly restricts the activities and power of labor unions but recognizes their rights to organize and strike. One of those most concerned about this was Edgar Eisenhower, brother of President Dwight D. Eisenhower and a very conservative Republican. He wrote Nixon with his concern that this was pro-union legislation, and Nixon was quick to try and assure him it was not. The Eisenhower and Nixon families had by then been united by the marriage of David Eisenhower and Julie Nixon, and the long-term acquaintenceship between Edgar and Nixon, and Edgar's influence, were probably all factors in Nixon doing something quite unusual as president - personally answering correspondence in what are clearly his own words, complete with underlinings and a first-name signature. We do not recall seeing that before.& & Typed Letter Signed on White House letterhead, Washington, June 3, 1970, to Edgar Eisenhower. "...Let me assure you that the postal reform bill proposed by the Administration would not reqiure compulsory unionism. We have proposed, as one phase of a broad plan for dealing with the unique problems faced by the Post Office Department, that postal labor-management relations be governed by the same laws that apply in the private sector - including the Taft-Hartley and Landrum-Griffin Acts - except that strikes by postal employees would continue to be illiegal, and machinery would be provided to permit resolution of negotiating impasses without resort to strikes. It obviously is not feasible to use the postal reform legislation as a vehicle for reforming the Taft-Hartley Act. Accordingly, one consequence of putting the Postal Service under Taft-Hartley would be that postal management - like management in the private sector - might have to bargain over union shop arrangements in states other than those having right-to-work laws. (Whether the Postal Service would ever agree to a union shop arrangement is another question entirely.) Our guiding principle has been that the Postal Service should be reorganized in a way that would permit it to be managed as effectively as a well-run private business. This entails a resort to the terms of the Taft-Hartley Act, but it certainly does not entail a statutory imposition of compulsory unionism. The need for workable postal reform legislation is urgent. It would be most unfortunate, in my opinion, if passage of an acceptable postal reform bill were delayed by a controversy as to whether the National Labor Relations Act should outlaw the union shop."& & This letter gives us a rare glimpse of Nixon as strategist during his presidency, weighing and balancing what to say and how to say it.
