        Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (Original German poster for the 1970 film)

      Heidelberg, Germany: Winterdruck, 1970. Original West German A1 poster for the 1970 US film, "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls," here under its foreign release title, "Blumen ohne Duft." Based on an original story by Roger Ebert, who also helped write the screenplay. Three girls come to Hollywood to make it big with their rock band, "The Kelly Affair," stopping first to visit Kelly MacNamara's (1966 Playboy Playmate, Dolly Read) estranged aunt. Kelly's aunt introduces the band, comprised of Kelly (Read), Casey Anderson (1968 Playboy Playmate, Cynthia Myers), and Petronella Danforth (Marcia McBroom), to a flamboyant producer named Ronnie "Z-Man" Barzell (John LaZar), who changes their name to "The Carrie Nations" and has them perform at one of his orgiastic parties after a set by Strawberry Alarm Clock. Throughout the success of the new band, the girls use drugs and alcohol, attempt to maintain romantic relationships (even a lesbian tryst with Erica Gavin, director Meyer's "Vixen"), and find "Z-Man" to be a murderous transsexual. The film proved to be sexploitation and exploitation to its psychedelic limits at the time, was Meyer's biggest box-office draw to date, and gave the director a new audience: mainstream filmgoers in mainstream cinemas. Originally intended as a sequel to "Valley of the Dolls" (1967), with an original screenplay by Jacqueline Susann, Twentieth Century-Fox found the script unsatisfactory and sought new material. The film was released, as part of a settlement with Susann, with the disclaimer "This is not a sequel to VALLEY OF THE DOLLS." One of few X-rated films released by Twentieth Century-Fox, another being "Myra Breckenridge" (1970). Pam Grier got her start in this film, as an uncredited party attendant. Meyer regulars like Charles Napier, Lavelle Roby, and Haji, all make appearances. Set in Los Angeles. 23.5 x 32.75 inches (60 x 83 cm), rolled, on archival linen. Discreet restoration, else about Near Fine. Meyer, pp. 1023-1028. Weldon (1983), p. 54.

        Liberated Guardian [run of 36 issues, 1970-73]

      Liberated Guardian Worker's Collective 1970-1973, New York - The Liberated Guardian was a radical left publication that originally started in the Spring of 1970, when a group of Guardian workers who went on strike and decided to start a new, collectively-run paper. There were allegations of sexism and exploitation, as well as strong political differences between the the offended faction and the mother publication. Guardian offices were seized in the dispute, and the front page of the premiere issue (the "Liberation Issue") features a large photograph of the staff standing in the fire escapes waving clenched fists. As was the case with many similar newspapers, publication was irregular, due to disputes, infighting, and ideological differences. The Liberated Guardian took a strong, armed-struggle line, as evidenced by the variety of domestic and international causes it supported and covered: Black Panthers, the Castro regime, struggles in Indo-China, North Africa, and the Chinese cultural revolution, et al. Institutional holdings are scattered and spotty according to OCLC; this run, lacking (by our estimation) only a handful of issues, is the most complete that we have seen. Tabloid (43.5cm). A cohesive run of 36 issues, dated from April 1970 - February 1973, with the sequence running as follows: Vol.1, Nos.1-3, 6-9, 11-14, 16-21; Vol.2, Nos.1-11; Vol.3, Nos.1-8. Newsprint, with illustrated covers in black, white, and color; illus. Old fold, mailing label, and bulk rate slug to Vol.1, No.1, though all remaining issues are unfolded; occasional toning or light wear to text edges, and some trivial spine wear to a handful of issues; Vol.3, No.8 has paper loss to upper left corner from p.3-16; first and last issues Very Good+, with the remainder of the run being Near Fine copies.

      1970 - Handmade poster on a large sheet of paper measuring 40" x 18" (101 x 46cm). Old folds, remnants of masking tape at the extremities where the broadside was posted, a bit rough around the edges, overall good. A somewhat incoherent screed that apparently reflects race-based hatred against Jews aimed at stirring up African-Americans. While we are not aware of who made this, or where it was originally posted, it remains a compelling artifact of a time when racial and religious bitterness were open to all and commensurately unpredictable.

        [Photographs]: 1970s New York Punk

      New York. 1970s. A collection of vintage prints by Soho News photographer Michael Uffer of the downtown New York punk scene of the end of the 1970s. 21 vintage black and white prints Signed and stamped by the photographer, some dated, each measuring 11" x 22". All the prints are about fine. An archive of unseen photographs documenting the late '70s downtown punk scene taken at various venues, most notably at Max's Kansas City. The collection depicts the musicians and artists of the scene at their most unvarnished including Johnny Thunders with the Heartbreakers; Tomata du Plenty of The Screamers; Ari Up, Viv Albertine, and Tessa Pollitt of The Slits; Lydia Lunch; Wendy O. Williams; Edith Massey with Edie and the Eggs; the Dead Boys; Jerry Only; James Chance and the Contortions; and Middle Class, among others. New York indisputably (well, disputably, but in that case wrong-headedly) created punk's first home with musicians like David Johansen and Johnny Thunders creating a new sound based on the trash culture of the late 1960s. All Music Guide describes, "Their sound was basic (two-minute, three-chord rockers) and stripped-down (just guitar, bass, and drums), and their attitude, bringing a sense of dumb fun back to rock & roll, stood in sharp contrast to nearly every prevailing musical trend of the '70s." Meanwhile the likes of Lydia Lunch of Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, who was inspired to run away to New York because of the New York Dolls, and Wendy O. Williams, forged ahead creating a new image of women in music. These photographs show gigs candidly with cornflakes being strewn over the fans, James Chance of the Contortions collapsed on stage, Wendy O. with black electrical tape over her nipples screaming into a microphone, an anonymous fan covered in what appears to be blood laying on stage during a Middle Class set while a girl spastically dances in the foreground, and Ari Up of the Slits in a dingy hotel room. The raw power of punk can be seen in this assemblage of vintage early Downtown Scene images. .

        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.
