Inscribed and dated by the author, "Joy Maya Angelou". Fine in a fine dust jacket with a small crease to the front flap. A very nice copy. This testimony from a black sister marks the beginning of a new era in the minds and hearts of all black men and women... I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, liberates the reader into life simply because Maya Angelou confronts her own life with such a moving wonder, such a luminous dignity. I have no words for this achievement, but I know that not since the days of my childhood, when the people in books were more real than the people one saw every day, have I found myself so moved... Her portrait is a biblical study in life in the midst of death." (James Baldwin)

        Ode to LA while thinking of Brian Jones, deceased.

      Los Angeles; Western Lithograph Co. [?] for J.D.Morrison. [July] 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.

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

      [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.

        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.
