        Autograph Letter Signed with Illustration on a picture postcard of Family Dog Productions, Sept. 8, 1969

      - Ginsberg wrote to Magdalene (Leni) Sinclair regarding her husband John Sinclair's imprisonment for marijuana possession. Who is John Sinclair? At the time of his arrest in 1969, Sinclair was known for his jazz poetry and for radical political activism. He and Leni helped form the White Panther Party, a militant counterpart to the Black Panthers, most active in Michigan. Like many of his contemporaries, Sinclair smoked and sold marijuana. For the possession of apparently two joints, and after repeated prior arrests, Sinclair was given a ten year prison sentence in the tumultuous year, 1969. The sentence was criticized by many as unduly harsh. Sinclair's imprisonment incited a protest movement led by prominent figures in the arts and politics culminating in the huge "John Sinclair Freedom Rally" in Ann Arbor, Michigan, December 10, 1971. Shortly afterward, he was released, and he sued the federal government for illegal domestic surveillance. Sinclair's case was successfully argued before the US Supreme Court in United States v. U.S. District Court (1972). About three weeks after the Woodstock concert in upstate New York, where many of Sinclair's supporters performed, Allen Ginsberg wrote this letter to Leni Sinclair. Here, he offered to "do what I can to publicize John's usefulness to life and the bum rap he's in.I'll send out the appeals." He asked whether the Sinclair's phone was shut off due to non -payment of the bills then offers advice. "You should prepare weekly short news clips. Let me know what P.E.N. says." PEN is an organization protecting writers' rights, particularly the freedom of expression. Ginsberg drew a whimsical illustration of a fantasy animal called air mail, egg shaped, two wings on each side, eyes and the word, "airmail" drawn as if to be the mouth. Perhaps Ginsberg wanted to lift Leni's spirits. He signed in full, "Allen Ginsberg." In pencil, he added the date and return address of Cherry Valley, NY Ginsberg wrote on the address side of the green and purple Family Dog postcard promoting the " Love Congress of Wonders concert."

        Fire.

      Tanglewood Press., New York 1969 - Multiple from the minimal and conceptual portfolio entitled Ô7 Objects / 69Õ, published by Tanglewood Press in 1969. Published in an edition of 100 copies (+10 artistÕs proofs), scratch-signed on the back of the plaque by Kaltenbach. The owner of the work was encouraged by Kaltenbach to complete what he saw as an unfinished work, by imbedding the bronze plaque in any sidewalk, and then notifying the artist and publisher of its location. The plaque, fabricated bearing a single word, ÔFireÕ, was designed to resemble normal street hardware, like hydrant markers or dedication plaques for buildings, or the paperweights holding down stacks of magazines at a newstand. Stephen Kaltenbach (b. 1940) is one of the most important figures in American conceptual art. He was featured in landmark group exhibitions organised by the movementÕs foremost advocates Ð Seth Siegelaub (March, 1969), Harald Szeemann (Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form, 1969), and Lucy Lippard (955,000, 1970) Ð as well as presenting solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1969) and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (1967). (Ref. Lucy Lippard - Six Years: the dematerialization of the art object, p. 66). Solid bronze plaque.

        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.
