        Ford concept

      1970. Gouache on composition board. Signed, "Dom Pacitti" Striking controntation with an early 70's Ford grille This is a dramatic, confrontational drawing by Dom Pacitti of the type of hidden headlight grille popular in the early 70's. Though the idea of concealing headlights had been around since before World War II, it only became popular in the mid-60's at the same time intricate chrome grilles were catching on. Here against a dark brown background, the proposed Ford (XL?) swerves to avoid hitting the viewer (seated on a curb) showing its bright new bumper, grille and right front fender as well as a glimpse of the right side. The diagonal positioning allows the artist to maximize the dramatic display of beauty and agility.

        We

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1970. Translated by Bernard Guilbert Guerney. Introduction and Bibliographical Note by Michael Glenny. Octavo. Original grey boards, titles to spine gilt, top edge stained blue. With the dust jacket. Contemporary ownership inscription to the front free endpaper but an excellent copy in the very slightly tanned and minutely rubbed dust jacket. First UK edition, first impression. This remarkably novel had a tortured birth. A dystopia written in the first few months of the Soviet Union by one of the revolution's chief engineers no publisher in Russia dared to print an edition. It first appeared in a Czech translation in 1924 and in a tiny printing in the USA. The first readily available printing was of the French translation and it was in this form that both Huxley and Orwell discovered the novel without which neither Brave New World nor 1984 would have been as they were. Taking its title from the nation's motto - "I don't want to be I I want to be we" - the novel takes the form of an unauthorized diary of the engineer D-503, his struggle with the irrationality of the square root of minus 1, his subsequent mental and philosophical collapse, his illicit and doomed love affair, the state's modes of rehabilitation, and eventual subordination. Not until Cape's edition in 1970 was this masterpiece published in the UK.

        "Politics is the Art of Controlling Your Environment"

      (n.p.): (n.p.). [c. 1970]. A famous statement by Thompson, found all over the internet these days, including reportedly on a t-shirt Hunter sent to the actor John Cusack. Here it appears as a broadside, apparently published in relation to Thompson's own brief, and quickly aborted, political career -- his way of agitating to get out the vote during his run for Sheriff in Aspen, Colorado, in 1970. It would appear that this statement was first published in relation to Thompson's own brief, and quickly aborted, political career -- his way of agitating to get out the vote. An extremely scarce Thompson item: we can find no record of it appearing anywhere, ever. Signed by Thompson. 8-1/2" x 11". A handful of very tiny holes from its being repeatedly tacked up. Still fine.

        NORTHWEST COAST HAISLA [NORTHERN KWAKIUTL] INDIAN HAND CARVED LARGE YELLOW CEDAR TOTEM POLE

      Circa 1950., 1970. The pole measures about 17" tall x 4 1/2" thick on a 1 1/2" high base. The totem is carved by master Haisla carver Henry Venn Robertson and was done in circa 1950. This totem is also hand-painted by Robertson. This is one of the few hand-painted totems done by Robertson as he discontinued the practice of painting in about 1970. Henry Robertson (b1932 - ) is one of the finest totem carvers around, and began carving at age 10 under the direction of his father, Gordon Robertson. Henry's traditional name is Ga-ba-baawk, which means Ten Ravens in English. In the many years that he has been carving wood, he has had many exhibitions in galleries throughout Canada and the United States. He has carved many smaller carvings and smaller totems and feasting bowls, but enjoys especially carving large, full scale totem poles. This totem features very finely sculpted imagery of a large bear-like creature in a green, black, and maroon face with mouth open and showing individually carved teeth. His arms are wrapped around a human-like creature with the face painted in green, black, and maroon, the body in maroon with black finger and toe nails. The claws and feet of the bear-like creature are also painted in black. The totem is signed in pencil on the back, "Henry Robertson, Kemano, B.C." Henry's work, although never widely promoted commercially has always had a strong following, and his classic carving style and fine attention to detail ranks among the very best of carvings anywhere. A fine totem pole with no flaws and one of the few hand-painted examples of the carver's work.

Lothar-Günther Buchheim was a German propaganda officer serving in Kriegsmarine (the German Navy) the during World War II acting as war correspondent and recounting his experiences on German minesweepers, destroyers, and submarines. In such capacity, Buchheim also made drawings and took photographs. He ultimately served on U-96, a submarine commanded by Heinrich Lehmann-Willenbrock who was a leading German submarine commander during the Battle of the Atlantic which lasted from 1939 until the Allies defeated Germany in 1945. Lehmann-Willenbrock came to great fame due to his success and the publicity thereof provided by Buchheim who was aboard U-96 during its sinking of several of the 24 ships sunk under Lehmann-Willenbrock's command. Several decades after the War, Buchheim wrote his most famous and most successful book, "Das Boot", a fictionalized autobiographical account of his time during the War. "Das Boot" provided the basis for the 1981 German film nominated for six Academy Awards. Nicknamed "Starnberg volcano", Buchheim was known for his temper, and both that temper and his corresponding temperament clearly show through in his letters. In them, he repeatedly complains about Knopf, his American publisher, and often about his American Agent, Joan Daves, peppering his letters with such phrases as "There is nothing worse for an author...", of a French translator "she is so miserable", for a telegram of the American efforts he "waited with fear and trembling", he describes himself as "extraordinarily stingy", complains constantly about a "lack of communication" from New York and states that it is driving him wild, describes American reviewers as idiots, others as imbeciles, declares himself to be annoyed, sour, and hanging "in the air" over the lack of information from Knopf, complains vehemently about being forwarded a hospital bill in the amount of $35 for a Proctoscopy he had while in New York -- arguing that it should have been covered by Knopf as part of his expenses for a meeting in New York, says his anger at Knopf "knows no limits at all", complains about the American translation of "Das Boot" states that the Hollywood folks trying to make a movie of the book must refer to the UK translation in order to understand the book. He seldom shows satisfaction, much less happiness. In response to one of his letters, Carol Janeway of Knopf begins her reply to him with "Dear Herr Buchheim, Peace! White Flag! Surrender!". All in all a remarkable and interesting Archive replete with Buchheim signatures and EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE as such.

        One Hundred Years of Solitude

      London :: Jonathan Cape,, 1970. 0224618539. A Very Good Plus copy with a previous owner inscription on the preliminary page in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacketith wear to the corners. One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967) is the story of seven generations of the Buendía Family in the town of Macondo. The founding patriarch of Macondo, José Arcadio Buendía, and Úrsula Iguarán, his wife (and first cousin), leave Riohacha, Colombia, to find a better life and a new home. One night of their emigration journey, while camping on a riverbank, José Arcadio Buendía dreams of "Macondo", a city of mirrors that reflected the world in and about it. Upon awakening, he decides to found Macondo at the river side; after days of wandering the jungle, José Arcadio Buendía's founding of Macondo is utopic. Founding patriarch José Arcadio Buendía believes Macondo to be surrounded by water, and from that island, he invents the world according to his perceptions. Soon after its foundation, Macondo becomes a town frequented by unusual and extraordinary events that involve the generations of the Buendía family, who are unable or unwilling to escape their periodic (mostly self-inflicted) misfortunes. Ultimately, a hurricane destroys Macondo, the city of mirrors; just the cyclical turmoil inherent to Macondo. At the end of the story, a Buendía man deciphers an encryption that generations of Buendía family men had failed to decode. The secret message informed the recipient of every fortune and misfortune lived by the Buendía Family generations.[& .

        [Transcript]: David Frost Show Interview with Tennessee Williams

      New York: Group W. Production (Westinghouse Broadcasting). 1970. Mimeograph sheets. 25pp. Sheets attached with staple. Crease to corner of first sheet, else fine. Original transcript of Frost's interview with Tennessee Williams shortly after being released from the hospital for alcohol and drug abuse.

        Gay Power -- Volume 1, Number 16

      May 1970. Newspaper. Folio. 23pp. Newsprint wrappers. Toned with tiny tears along the spine and the foredge, very good. This copy of "New York's first homosexual newspaper" is notable for its cover image from controversial photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, which may be his earliest published photo -- The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation in New York could not identify any earlier published Mapplethorpe photos. The image is a reproduction of a collage titled "Bull's Eye" that was produced during his final year at the Pratt Institute of Design where he studied graphic arts, and this printing predates his first one-man show held at Stanley Amos's gallery in the Chelsea Hotel on November 4, 1970. Mapplethorpe started taking his own photos to use in collages instead of using images from books and magazines because "it was more honest." He received his first Polaroid camera in 1970, the same year as this image. OCLC locates no copies. .
