        Ron Cooper. March 14 to April 4, 1969 (poster)

      Los Angeles: Ace, 1969 - Offset lithograph designed by Rick Griffin in black on off-white art paper. 28.9 x 23.1 inches / 73.4 x 58.7 cm. Originally folded in eight, but professionally flattened. Verso blank. The image consists entirely of the artist’s name in elaborate rock-poster lettering on a large white field. The vital data are in similar but far more legible calligraphy at the bottom edge of the poster. A superb piece. Folds worn through in three small, nearly invisible spots. Some inevitable ruffling of the paper due to triple folding of relatively thick paper, but near fine, nevertheless. Not located in OCLC.

        Guitar Legend Jimi Hendrix - Performing on stage at the Isle of Wight, 1969.

      Rare, modern print of the 1969 Original / Vintage Photograph on archival paper. Image: 38 cm x 25 cm / Framed: 64,5 cm x 50 cm. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. Titled and signed by John Minihan. Beautifully framed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995) Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996) and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984 Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986 the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991. (Wikipedia) Raymond Douglas "Ray" Davies CBE (/'de?v?s/ DAY-vis born 21 June 1944) is an English musician.

Octavo, original gray cloth, original dust jacket. $3500.First edition of Dick's popular and ""brilliantly realized"" science fiction novel about a group of psychics experiencing a form of life after death.Ubik ""features the creation of a subjective world by a group of people killed in an accident but restored to a kind of consciousness within a preservative machine, though any final determination of what is real in the book is made superbly problematical"" (Clute & Nicholls, 329). ""A brilliantly realized science fiction future darkened by Kafkaesque paranoia. As portrayed by Dick, a world in which cryogenic suspension has abolished traditional concepts of death and in which psychics can alter the future by changing the past is one that offers no foundation for objective truth"" (Barron, Fantasy and Horror 6-113). With ""First Edition"" stated on the copyright page. Dick adapted Ubik from his short story ""What the Dead Men Say,"" published in the June, 1964 issue of Worlds of Tomorrow magazine. Levack 42a.

        Let's Get a Good Shot

      Walden: Robert M. Knight. 1969. The first book by "Bobby" Knight, the legendary basketball coach and member of the Basketball Hall of Fame. At the time he retired, Knight was the winningest basketball coach in NCAA history. His teams won the national championship three times and he was named national Coach of the Year four times. He also coached the U.S. national team to an Olympic Gold Medal in 1984. This book was written while Knight was coaching at Army, before he took the job at Indiana where he earned most of his honors, including 11 league championships and eight league Coach of the Year awards. Knight's 1976 Indiana team, which won the national championship, was the last major college team to go undefeated for a full season. Knight was also a controversial figure, famous for his temper: on one occasion he threw a chair across the court during a game; and Hall of Fame player Larry Bird dropped out of school and quit basketball for a time rather than play for Knight. 28 numbered pages; several scuffs to covers. Owner name, a high school basketball coach at the time, inside both front and rear covers. Very good in stapled wrappers. Scarce. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good.

        Claes Oldenburg Drawings and Prints

      1969. First Edition . (OLDENBURG, Claes) BARO, Gene. Claes Oldenburg Drawings and Prints. Lausanne: Paul Bianchini (Editions I.R.L.), (1969). Quarto, original brown cloth gilt, original slipcase. Original etching laid in. $3000.Limited first edition of OldenburgÂ’s work, number 70 of 100 copies (out of a total edition of only 126), with an initialed original etching.Oldenburg is best known for his public art installations typically featuring very large replicas of everyday objects. In this collection of his drawings and prints, many are preliminary sketches for his sculptures. “With Claes Oldenburg the act of drawing seems wholly natural, a reflex to his inner life and to the world about him. Of course, he draws also quite deliberately, in preparation for his work in sculpture; but his preoccupation with drawing— or, rather, the ways in which drawing serves his preoccupations— goes well beyond this practical necessityÂ… They are the essential visual means by which he confronts and masters the physical world.” Of a successful drawing Oldenburg observes, “it shows the family relationship of forms, the unity of things in general.” The accompanying original etching is initialed and numbered “70/100, CO 70.” Fine condition.

        [Poster]: Como en Viet Nam

      [No place - Peking?: no publisher. circa 1969]. Small poster, approximately 11" x 17". Shrinkwrapped onto foam core backer. Very slight fading along the right-hand edge, a tiny pinhole, a few small stains, still very near fine. Four-color multichrome image in the foreground of a worker oiling machinery, while the top, more vivid image is of a cheerful looking peasant loading a mortar shell. Our Spanish is minimal, but the meaning is essentially, "What it's like in Vietnam." No publication information, but this came from a small group of Chinese propaganda posters (in non-Chinese languages) printed in China, mostly dated around 1969. We have seen an online citation of this poster describing it as being produced in Australia by the anti-war movement, but we have our doubts. .

PRICE, JR., SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO PRESIDENT RICHARD NIXON.Inscribed on front free endpaper, "To Mr. Raymond Price / with best wishes, / F. E. Marcos". Nixon's biographer describes Price, who initially came to the White House as a speech writer, as "A rather shy, soft-spoken man [and] thirty-seven-year old former chief editorial writer for...the New York Herald Tribune...He personified the Eastern Establishment [despite which] he got on well with Nixon, for whom he developed a strong admiration and deep sense of loyalty."The presentation of this book was occasioned by Nixon's visit to the Phillipines in July, 1969 where, accompanied by Price, he scored "a public-relations triumph" [Ambrose]. Price received from Marcos several presents, as well as the promise of this book, which duly arrived at the State Department on August 19 and was delivered to Price at the White House. Accompanying the book is a mimeographed memo to Henry Kissinger concerning "Gifts from President Marcos for Members of the White House Staff", conveying it to Price; this is Mr. Price's copy. Also included is the carbon of a gracious letter from Price to Marcos thanking His Excellency for this book and his other gifts.A WONDERFUL ASSOCIATION COPY, AND A HISTORIC ARTIFACT MARKING A HIGH POINT OF THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION AND OF AMERICAN/PHILLIPINE RELATIONS.
