        ADDENDA for Lesson One to Lesson Eleven for Tubbs' Stock Market Correspondence Lessons

      C. Ralph Dystant, Dysco., Chicago, IL, USA 1970 - NO BINDING, Loose pages (3 hole punched), 8.5 x 11 in. white paper for text and green grid graph paper for charts, This 54 pp. ADDENDA (Original) is for the NEW 1970 edition of Tubbs' Stock Market Correspondence Lessons One to Fourteen that Ralph Dystant published in 1970. Upon uncovering this rare document we now better understand how it came to be that there are two versions of the Tubbs course reprint floating around. The first TEN Lesson course written and published by Frank Tubbs in the 30s or 40s, and the FOURTEEN Lesson course published by Dystant in 1970. Lessons Eleven by Fourteen were written and added by Dystant in 1970. Dystant re-typeset the entire Lesson One thru Fourteen Course for the 1970 publication, but for those re-sellilng the reprint for the last couple of decades, there has never been any mention that Ralph Dystant actually wrote the last four chapters and to our knowledge the existence of an ADDENDA for Lessons One to Eleven by Ralph Dystant may have been known by very few. It is clear to us now that Dr. Jerome Baumring, who originally owned this ADDEND knew, but decided to sell the Reprints of Lesson One through Fourteen Course with no reference to Ralph Dystant. We can only speculate as to Dr. Baumring's reasons, but it may have been related to copyright infringement issues. In this 54 pp. ADDENDA, Dystant attempts to update Tubb's observations and in many cases uses current charts to illustrate his additonal observations. For those of you who own the Tubbs' course you will see in Lesson Eleven that a 1970 chart of Savin verifies that Dystant wrote Lessons Eleven through Fourteen. We were also able to verify Dystant's November 1970 copyright and description through the Catalog of Copyright Entries, Third Series: 1970: July-December (See photo). Addenda Condition: Very Good, pages are lightly tanned and light shelfwear otherwise clean and unmarked. (no binding, loose pages only), Contents: Lesson One Addenda 8 pp. (4 pages of text and pages of charts), Lesson Two Addenda 4 pp. (2 pages of text and 2 pages of charts, Lesson Three Addenda 14 pp. (2 pages of text, 3 pages of charts and 9 pages of tables), Lesson Four Addenda 7 pp. (1 page of text and 6 pages of charts), Lesson Five Addenda 1 pp. (1 page of text), Lesson Six Addenda 3 pp. (1 page of text and 2 pages of charts), Lesson Seven Addenda 3 pp. (2 pages of text and 1 page of charts), Lesson Eight Addenda 2 pp. (1 page of text and 1 page of charts), Lesson Nine Addenda 5 pp. (3 pages of text, 1 page of charts and 1 page of tables), Lesson Ten Addenda 1 pp. (1 page of text), Lesson Eleven Addenda (A Ralph Dystant Addenda to his own chapter) 4 pp. (1 page of text and 3 pages of charts), also included is a chart of the Transportation Averages from 1958 to 1970 with volume and a chart of Market Barometers for 1969 to 1970 that includes Utilities, Industrials and Transportation -- end. 54 pp. EXTREMLY SCARCE ORIGINAL BY C.

        Archive of Personal Papers and Photos

      A small but interesting collection of items related to actress Vivien Merchant, the first wife of Nobel Prize-winner Harold Pinter, including an ALS from Merchant, a photograph of her from a play, and two photographs of Pinter (one an early image with their son Daniel). Overall near fine or better with some scattered wear at the corners and a splash mark to one letter. An unusual group of items which includes a hotel bill from The Albany Hotel in 1970, a Westside Health Club member card (which expired May 22, 1974), a 1971 bank statement from Midland Bank Limited, and a thank you card from Rowohlt Theater Verlag. There are also two pieces of correspondence from friends: including an ALS by British theater actress Viola Keats, who costarred in the 1974 Pinter-directed version of Next of Kin by John Hopkins; and an ALS by Merchant to Keats asking her to dinner. Of particular note are the three photographs: the first is a continuity Polaroid of Merchant in costume for an unidentified play; the second is a poignant photo of Pinter with Daniel from the early 1960s, as Pinter was gaining in popularity and long before the two became estranged; and lastly, a mounted black and white version of a photo of Pinter that appeared in color on the cover of the Saturday Review for April 8, 1967, with the stamp of celebrity photographer Anthony di Gesu on the verso, likely given to Merchant as a keepsake. An unusual and fascinating group of items. .

        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. .

        Flesh Wager

      Cameo 1970 - ANN GRIFFIN (DEAN KOONTZ penname) - FLESH WAGER, published by Cameo #8066, copyright 1970, First printing. This book is one of a number of 30 or so books that Dean Koontz wrote for Cameo books early in his career under various pennames (like Linda Mitchell or Leonard Chris), and one book he actually published under his own name (Bounce Girl). Dean Koontz has since disavowed and otherwise denied having ever written such books (besides Bounce Girl which was published under his own name and the Leonard Chris book "Hung"), but the evidence is undisputable: The Library of Congress confirms that Gerda Ann Koontz (Dean's wife) holds the copyrights to this book. "Gracie" is one of the five names listed in the dedication of the gothic romance "Demon Child" (which Koontz wrote under the penname of Deanna Dwyer). All five of the first names listed in the dedication of "Demon Child" have turned out to be pseudonyms that Dean had used for this particular "Adult" literature. In an article written by Dean Koontz entitled "Dean's Drive" in the sci-fi fanzine Energumen #8 (6/71), Dean Koontz admitted to writing 30 of these books in 1970 (including "Share The Warm Flesh" and "Flesh Wager" - this book), along with Pig Society and The Underground Lifestyles Handbook (both of which were also published by the same publisher, Cameo books in 1970). One of the titles that Dean Koontz admits to having written ("Thirteen and Ready") was written under the penname of Ann Griffin. In an early sci-fi fanzine, Beabohema #8 (1970), Dean Koontz again talked about writing these books. The authors initials (A.G.) are simply Dean's wife's initials in reverse. One of the Ann Griffin cameo books "Protest Ball," lists the author's address as Harrisburg, Pennsylviania (where Dean and his wife were living in 1970). Finally, in Dean Koontz's writing how-to book "How to Write Popular Fiction" (1972), he refers to these books and specifically to the Ann Griffin penname. Book has very faint vertical spine creasing, no spine lean, no cover creases, no soiling or staining to covers, no former owner markings or used bookstore markings inside, no missing pages, no creased page corners, pages are flat and tight, pages are age yellowing, very slight edge wear, just a hint of color rubbing wear to covers (common defect due to the all-green cover). Overall a VG+/FINE- book of this rare 1970s Dean Koontz pen name book. I have a number of other U.S. and U.K. Dean Koontz 1st printing hardcover/ paperback/magazine appearances up for sale.

        Ben-Gurion Calls for a Jerusalem Home for the Bible Society: "every spiritual idea, for it to exist and exert influence, needs a physical structure, too, a central home"

      1970 - Letter Signed to Menasche Elissar. 17 Kislev 5731, December 15, 1970. 1 p., 8 1/2 x 11 in. Form letter on "The World Jewish Bible Society" letterhead. In Hebrew. Also see item #22355, where Ben Gurion reexamines a Bible story after discussion with the chairman of the World Jewish Bible Society. Partial Translation"Much Shalom!I would invite you to become a member of the council of the Bible House in Jerusalem. The proponents of the Bible House have given consideration to the fact that every spiritual idea, for it to exist and exert influence, needs a physical structure, too, a central home. The uniqueness of Jerusalem, the city of the prophets and the capital of Israel, makes it appropriate that a House be established in it to collect inside every commentary, book and creation that has been thought of and created in Judaism through the generations regarding the Book of Books, and every creation by the sages of the nations of the world that displays the influence of the Bible. The House, with its book collections and educational exhibits, will serve as a place of study for the lovers of Torah, the youth and adults who will come to it in order to increase their knowledge of the Book of Books and its interpretations. The House will also serve as a gravitational center for residents of this country when they go up to Jerusalem, and to tourists from the Diaspora, who will be able to absorb in it the spirit of the Book of Books. More details about the House's content and its purpose can be found in the attached brochure, which contains things said during the ground breaking ceremony.The initiating committee hopes you will agree to lend a helping hand to the establishment of this cultural center in Jerusalem. We await your reply.Blessings,D. Ben-Gurion [Signature]D. Ben GurionPresident of the Israel Society for Biblical Research"Historical Background Building a permanent home for the Israeli Center for Biblical Research was one of Ben-Gurion's favorite projects. He envisioned a compound overlooking Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives with a research library, exhibit and museum space, and educational facilities. Intended for the study of the Hebrew Bible, the research center would be the headquarters for the World Jewish Bible Society. Ground was broken on October 18, 1970, but the building was never completed.David Ben-Gurion, Israeli politician; proclaimed Israeli independence in 1948, becoming the new independent nation's first Prime Minister after years as the head of the Zionist movement; changed his name from Gryn to Ben-Gurion, "Son of the Lion Cub." Even in retirement, Ben-Gurion's crusade to strengthen and enrich the state and people of Israel did not end.

        INSOMNIA, OR THE DEVIL AT LARGE

      Albuquerque: Loujon Press, [1970].. Folio. Quarto spiralbound book in foil wrapper and twelve lithographed broadside reproductions of watercolors, plus frontis and special colophon/title leaf, enclosed in publisher's folding cloth clamshell box. Fine. First edition, special issue (distributed ca. 1971). This present copy is one of twenty copies specially cased and distributed as a memorial fund-raiser for the publisher. It includes a frontispiece portrait of Henry Miller by Paul Giovanopoulos not included in the regular issues (1/30 numbered and signed in pencil by the artist in the margin), along with a manuscript note by Mrs. Jon Webb, and a specially printed title leaf for the portfolio (not noted by the bibliographers, who oddly denote this a second "edition," which it is not). Although not called for, each of the plates of watercolors by Miller is signed by him in the margin (generally near the facsimile signature), in ink, rather than pencil, as was the case with the more exclusive regular issues. This rather awkward production was ill-starred from its initial conception, when an edition of 999 copies was envisioned; reality soon sunk in, and the edition was reduced to 699 copies. In the end, only three hundred of the original wood cases were completed, and some of the more lavish deluxe issues - A through F - were issued in far smaller numbers than intended. A portion of the edition was then offered as the "Economy" issue, without the wooden case, but with the reproductions. Apart from the original issue 'A' (12 copies with an original watercolor by Miller), this is the most limited of the distributed issues, and the clamshell box is far preferable to the wood slide-case (with the famous photo of Miller astride a toilet) that accompanied a portion of the other issues. Extra postage. S&J A175k.

        A pen drawing by Robert Lenkiewicz with the caption "The folly of the alchemists. After Urs Graf, in J. Scheible, Das Kloster, Vol. I, Stuttgart, 1845." Not dated but probably executed in the 1970s. [ circa 1970 ].

      - The drawing is in ink (probably executed with some sort of fine marker) on a sheet of white paper, with a caption immediately below the design reading "The folly of the alchemists. After Urs Graf, in J. Scheible, Das Kloster, Vol. I, Stuttgart, 1845." The size of the image and immediate surrounds (as shown) is approx. 6.5 inches high x 10.5 inches wide (165mm high x 265mm wide). The image is drawn "landscape" on a sheet that is 13 inches high x 10.25 inches wide (330mm high x 260mm wide). Robert Oscar Lenkiewicz (1941 - 2002) was a renowned British artist, Hermeticist, and student of the alchemical arts, who was also well-known as an eccentric and book-collector. He was a regular visitor to the British Library and the British Museum, where he made careful sketches based on the illustrations and diagrams that were relevant to his studies that he found in rare alchemical manuscripts and books. This is one such drawing, apparently done after a much earlier woodcut that was reproduced in the famous German collection of early magical and Hermetic texts, "Das Kloster." It is one of a number of such sketches, some loose, some housed in a large folio entitled "On Alchemical Apparatus" that were evidently related to his personal researches into the subject rather than being "finished artworks" intended for exhibition or sale. As such it is not signed, although we do provide a guarantee and certificate of authenticity. Two small holes punched in the extreme left margin, neither of which are near the image area. The merest hint of discoloration, but over all in VG + condition and would frame nicely. A good opportunity to acquire an authentic and intimate memento of this fascinating artist & hermeticist, at a fraction of the price that one of his own finished artworks would fetch.

        [Screenplay]: The Silent Flute [Circle of Iron]

      Pingree-Panpiper Productions. 1970. Screenplay, "October 19, 1970." Foreword by Bruce Lee. Quarto. 70pp. Bradbound in printed blue wrappers. Near fine with some toning on the front wrap, some bumping on a couple corners, and the title written in the lower page ends as typical. The screenplay for the unrealized Lee film that was shelved after his untimely death in 1973. The film, about a martial arts expert, played by James Coburn, who must pass three trials to obtain a book containing martial art secrets, was to costar Lee playing different roles along the fighter's journey. The story was a joint effort by Lee, Coburn, and his longtime friend, Stirling Silliphant, an Academy Award-winning screenwriter (In The Heat of the Night) who penned the screenplay in a "European" form that reads like a treatment without scene breakdowns or camera directions. Lee hoped the picture would bring Eastern Philosophy to a Western audience, as he states in the script's two-page foreword. The film was rewritten as the abysmal 1978 Circle of Iron starring Jeff Cooper in the Coburn role with David Carradine stepping in for Lee, along with Eli Wallach, Christopher Lee, and Roddy McDowall.

        Mardi Gras in New Orleans

      London: Self Published, 1970. First Edition. Softcover.. VG+. Square 8vo, Unpaginated (ca 120pp). Stiff printed wraps as issued. Numerous Black & White plates. A little rubbed and soiled. Stamped by Demoruelle to cover and signed by him to the last page. More images available on request. Incredibly scarce privately printed book, with only 1 institutional copy and a few copies in private hands. Local man Demoruelle shoots Mardi Gras, but ignores the floats and performers to document the crowd, the streets, the drunks, the sailors and the families. A very striking, natural and individual document of a very special (and long gone) phenomenon, Demoruelle has an excellent eye for detail and a natural flair for capturing the somewhat ethereal spirit of New Orleans in the late sixties. Really the best book on the subject, and certainly the rarest.
