        Stockton Silver Hammer - 1-15

      Stockton, California: [no publisher]. 1970. A run of the first 15 issues of the biweekly alternative newspaper Stockton Silver Hammer. Each is a tabloid sized issue. Overall near fine with some toning to the cheap newsprint, waviness to later issues and all folded once as issued. The newspaper covered everything you would expect from an alternative newspaper in the early 1970s: the Vietnam War, unfair police enforcement, drug laws, entrenched politicians and (what they saw as) rigged elections. They also offered readers advice on drugs, abortion counseling, various protest efforts, woman's liberation, the struggle for Native American rights, the Kent State shootings, and the trial of the Soledad Brothers, to name a few. Most issues also included a plethora of spot illustration and full page cartoons by Gary Ratto and Carlos Lopez in the style of underground comixs of the day. The newspaper charged 15-cents per issue (unlike many of the other free underground newspapers across the country), possibly realizing it could not survive on advertising revenue in the mostly conservative Stockton area. If that was the case, they were unfortunately proved correct finally succumbing to printing costs after only 20 issues. OCLC locates five records, a mix of single issues and partial runs. .

      Los Angeles, 1970. An original typed letter from Charles Bukowski to his dear friends and publishers John and Gypsy Lou Webb, dated 8-20-70 and signed "Buk" in blue ballpoint pen. The letter is typed on standard 8.5 X11" paper and comes with the original mailing envelope. The letter has two folds from mailing and is stained in the margins by either beer or coffee - though considering the source, it's probably beer (would you really have it any other way?). A solid half-page letter, single spaced, and of a personal nature. The letter reads: " Hello Jon and Lou - first sober day--so far--in a week. that half-century mark was a tough leap. good to get your card. any future birthdays won't matter so much. know you are busy with the Miller so won't burden you with a lot of talk. I contacted Steve Richmond, trying to get you a place down by the water so Lou won't act up. only problem with Venice is there are a lot of freaky hippy-yippie types. I don't mind a real hippie who slams from town to town, getting jobs picking fruit or whatever the hell. we used to call them bums in my day. I was a bum. still am. got nothing against bums. but most of the Venice hippie types are of the plastic variety, paying rent and with incomes from somewhere and wandering around. so there's that. anyhow, if you want to contact Steve Richmond further, I am enclosing his letter and will put his address down below. he plays with candles but only opens the place once or twice a week. the only thing is, for all the drawbacks, you might get a very reasonable deal, since I believe his parents own the place and about half of Venice, but Steve doesn't like to hear that part, he's very touchy about it. I'm told he goes about collecting rents and gets his own place rentfree. he's a very ####### quiet, non-bullshit guy but don't touch his you-are-rich button--he apes out. I was thinking he might get you a place of your own. if you drop him a short card or letter telling him what you are looking for it might help. I told Jon (Jr.) that it's pretty ard to think about a place for you when you are uncertain and so far away. by the way, Jon Jr. and Jery Sherman were over here the other day clacking beercans. they got along very well. me, I just don't get along with many people mainly because what they are interested in or fronting doesn't bring me on. you might say it's my fault. would like to see you two though and don't you dare come to town even for a short visit without coming to see me, god dam it. stay with it, Buk." The Webb's were early champions of Bukowski's work, publishing two of his early books, "It Catches My Heart In It's Hands" and "Crucifix In A Death Hand." As letters go, this one's pretty nice, showing both genuine affection for his friends and a bit of his personal ethos as well.

        A Fairly Honourable Defeat [Signed]

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1970. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing of Iris Murdoch's thirteenth novel (a bit of pushing to the spine ends, one outer board corner lightly turned, a darkish spot to each board), in a very attractive dust jacket (crease line to the front flap -- so straight and neat that it may be a production flaw, otherwise Fine with barely a touch of wear, slight pushing to the spine panel head and a small mark to the spine panel as well), SIGNED BY IRIS MURDOCH on the title page. A novel wherein the lives of a group of friends are disrupted by the academic biochemist Julius King's bet with his ex-girlfriend Morgan Brown that he can break up the homosexual relationship of Simon Foster (a brother his former colleague Rupert Foster then writing a book about living morally) with another man, Axel Nillson, one of Rupert's current colleagues. New York Times reviewer Christopher Lehmann-Haupt praised the novel for its ingenious plot and for its "comic spirit", calling it "the most entertaining Iris Murdoch I've read in years". Another New York Times reviewer, Rubin Rabinovitz described the book as a novel of ideas and called it "one of the most enjoyable and interesting of Iris Murdoch's recent books". English Professor Emeritus at Kingston University, Peter J. Conradi -- a noted Literary Critic and Iris Murdoch's biographer, called the novel a "brilliant and decisive masterpiece", and the novel with which she entered a "new artistic maturity" with the plot and the characters are equally balanced. Having an excellent Provenance, this copy belonged to noted (and murdered) collector and bibliophile Rolland Comstock whose bookplate adorns the front pastedown. The book itself is surprisingly uncommon to the market, especially when in a condition as nice as is this copy, and signed copies of it in any condition are a scarce as hen's teeth. A Fine copy, SIGNED BY IRIS MURDOCH and EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO THE MARKET.

        [Two Country Music Photograph Albums]

      Poughkeepsie, NY, [ca. 1970]. Near fine. Two albums, each oblong 4to. Measuring approximately 10.25” x 7” with 155 color photographs, loosely mounted rectos only in corners. Album 1: Green faux-leather covers, gilt title decoration to front, sting bound, 59 black paper leaves, each with two photographs recto mounted, 118 prints total; well preserved, near fine. Album 2: Ivory faux-leather covers, gilt title decoration to front 20 black paper leaves, 19 with recto mounted photographs, most two to a page, final leaf blank; crease through center of front cover, otherwise clean, contents near fine. A fantastic pair of albums capturing 1970 Poughkeepsie, NY area regional country music acts, venues and patrons. Prints almost entirely uniform in size, measuring approximately 3.5” square, many date stamped outside the image area. The first album shows spots in and around Poughkeepsie, primarily the Brand X Corral bar on Rt. 94 in Vails Gate, NY. Acts include Gil Rogers (whose albums we suspect these were based on internal evidence), The Country Cousins, and Country Skyline. The second album follows Rogers down to West Virginia for his performance during the 1970 Eastern States Country Music Convention on the famed WWVA Jamboree in WheelingÂ’s Capitol Theater. Rogers recorded a handful of honky-tonk singles in the early 1970Â’s on the Stop label and enjoyed regional success as a performer for decades. These amateur images show the elaborate stage dress, music gear and social settings of Woodstock-era country music. That famed festival was held less than a year earlier and some 35 miles from where most of the images shown here were snapped, though one could be forgiven for guessing they were taken years and miles apart. An album that demonstrates how this blue collar form adhered to traditions and fans throughout the cultural sea changes of the late 1960s and early 70s, and a colorful portrait of a working regional musician.

        Typed letter signed to Dr. Joseph F. Rorke.

      Houston, NASA 1970 - In this historic letter Armstrong details the history of the Apollo XI in-flight cancellation of the “First Man on the Moon” stamp and of the die famously carried to the moon by Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins: “Thank you very much for your kind letter of congratulations on the successes of Apollo XI. In answer to your question, the moon stamp was canceled on the first day of the journey back to earth. The cancellation was completed simultaneously by all three crew members. The stamp has been returned to the Postmaster General for his disposition. The die was carried to the surface of the moon aboard the Eagle.” The astronauts were to have postmarked the Postmaster General’s “moon letter” while on the moon’s surface, but they did not have time to undertake the task. Instead, they used the “MOON LANDING/USA/JUL/20/1969” rubber handstamp on the return journey, as Armstrong relates in this letter. Michael Collins recalled, “Never mind that it is July 22, this is the first chance we have had to get to it. We try the cancellation out first, inking it and printing it in our flight plan three times until we get the hang of it, and then we apply it gingerly to the one and only envelope, which we understand the postmaster general will put on tour” (Collins, Carrying the Fire). The die that Armstrong and Aldrin carried to the surface of the moon was subsequently used to make the printing plates for the famous “First Man on the Moon” stamp, far and away the most popular issue in the history of the US Postal Service. This Neil Armstrong letter is rare documentation of a landmark event in philatelic history. Provenance: Dr. Joseph F. Rorke was an American philatelist whose collection of U.S. 1863-68 two-cent “Black Jack” issues was sold at Christie’s, New York on March 16, 1988. Rorke was Frank Lloyd Wright’s longtime personal physician and resident physician at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. One page (8 x 10 1/2 in.). Moderate creasing and wear.

Seldom found. nowadays in such nice condition. (#139946). First British edition and first printing of this translation. "Over a half- century since its appearance, the novel WE remains one of the most exciting and influential works of science fiction. Its basic plot, whereby a true believer comes to question the validity of a totalitarian state and thus to transform it from a utopia into an anti-utopia, has been repeated by Aldous Huxley in BRAVE NEW WORLD (1932), George Orwell in NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR (1949) and by any number of epigones; yet its artistry, prophetic power, and underlying philosophy have not been surpassed." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2433-41.
