        Four Poems (Rat Jelly)

      1969 - The photocopied typescript of four poems by Ondaatje that would be collected four years later in Rat Jelly. Given by Ondaatje to Greg Gatenby (later the director of Toronto's annual International Festival of Authors) in 1969 when Gatenby was Ondaatje's student. Includes "Rat Jelly," "Burning Hills" (2 pages), "Near Elginburg," and "Sullivan and the Iguana." All correspond to the versions published in 1973 except for one extra line in this earlier version of "Sullivan and the Iguana." One tiny hand-correction reproduced in "Burning Hills." Pages are folded once; some spotting to pages, mostly on versos, not affecting text. Near fine. Manuscript material from this early in Ondaatje's career is practically unknown in the market, and this group comes with impeccable provenance, only one step removed from the author.

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

      Liechtenstein: Egaserp Établissements 1969 - 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. 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, and83 fabric swatches. 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A279, Woods/ICS A138(j), Langworth p.334

        Handmade POSTER for Bukowski's First Known Poetry Reading

      [Los Angeles], [1969]. First Edition. Poster. Tears along edges, jagged, but without loss of any words. Very Good and an exceptional artifact from Bukowski's career, the only known example. A hand-lettered poster @11" x 11" in black, red, and green inks for Bukowski's first known public readings at The Bridge bookstore, Los Angeles, on December 19 and 20, 1969. 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.
