        Winter Insomnia [Rare Issue in White Wrappers, Inscribed]

      (Santa Cruz): (Kayak). (1970). Carver's first regularly published book, a collection of poems, issued in an attractive edition of 1000 copies designed and printed by George Hitchcock and illustrated with prints by Robert McChesney. This is the issue in the rare white wrappers, the overwhelming majority having been issued in yellow wrappers. William Stull's Carver checklist said that three copies were known in the white wrappers. Since that checklist was published, we have seen three more copies in white wrappers, including this one, bringing the total number of known copies to six. Without knowing exactly how many white copies there were, we can say with assurance that this issue is exceedingly scarce; we've seen dozens, if not hundreds, of the issue in yellow wrappers. This copy is inscribed by Carver: "For Rush - with good wishes. Ray Carver. 3-3-83." Spine and edge sunning to covers; near fine. First Edition. Softcover.

        Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Technetronic Era

      New York: Viking Adult. Hardcover. 0670160415 334 pages including index. "The thrust of this challenging book is that America is the first society to move beyond the industrial age into the new "technetronic" era, and that this transition affects directly both our international and our domestic problems. Part 1 describes the impact of the scientific revolution on world affairs in general and on the Third World in particular, and exposes the ambiguous position of its principal disseminators, the US. Part 2 examines how this has effected the content, style, and format of man's political outlook on his global reality. Part 3 assesses the contemporary relevance of communism to the problems of modernity. Part 4 focuses upon the US, a society that is both a social pioneer and a guinea pig for mankind, and examines the crisis of American institutions and values during the current transition - as well as the challenge posed by the New Left. Part 5 outlines in broad terms the general direction the US might take in order to make an effective response to its foreign and domestic dilemmas." - from dust jacket (not included). "This is one of the most original books on political and social thought to appear in recent years. The author projects the impact of technology and electronics on the political and social values of the United States, the Soviet Union and other 'post-industrial' states. As a study of global society in transition, this seminal work is bound to elicit major controversy and will be difficult to ignore." - Foreign Affairs.

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

      New York: Liberated Guardian Worker's Collective, 1970-1973. 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.

        8 x 10 Art Portfolio [14 Sheets]

      [New York: Jeanie Black and Ely Raman]. (1970-1972). Artist publication. A collection of 14 sheets, all fine, housed in a toned folder splitting at several of the folds, very good. A portfolio magazine created by photographer Jeanie Black and Fluxus artist Ely Raman, published over nine issues between 1970-1972. This issue includes a "wallpaper piece" by Black, a "stamp drawing" by Raman, six penciled drawings from Mel Perkarsky's Landscape series, an onionskin tracing by Wertheim, a double-sided "Real Money" piece from Dana W. Atchley, and a "found art" photo of two mannequins. Asked many years later about the publication, Raman commented: "I realize that our historical consciousness (or self-consciousness?) was notably absent. The issues were not numbered or dated, the contributions often not properly identified (or footnoted) and we did not include serious (academic) verbiage identifying what we were doing in the context of art. Too busy making art to write or talk about it." The lack of documentation, the generic title, and the seeming randomness of each issue makes finding other copies of the publication difficult. While there are several sets at institutions, individual issues are quite scarce in the trade. .

Leporello that extends to nearly 27 feet and features black and white photographs of what is purported in the title. A close to near fine copy in white wrappers with a slight crease to the spine, a tiny faint spot to the rear panel which also has a sliver of a glue stain from the interior of the slipcase in a very good plus slipcase that some minor wear and some slight splitting at the top edge.
