        Cruising (Signed First Edition, review copy)

      New York: Stein and Day, 1970. First Edition. First Edition. REVIEW COPY, with publisher's slip, author's glossy review photo, and publisher letter laid in. This copy is also humorously INSCRIBED by the author in the year of publication to noted bibliophile Burt Britton: "Sept. 5, 1970 / For Burt Britton - / Who swears he'll never turn me in to IRS (and whom I will not turn in to Doubleday). / Regards, / Gerry Walker." Britton published a book a few years later, titled, "Self-Portrait: Book People Picture Themselves," which contained hundreds of self-caricatures of authors he had collected over the years. Walker was the editor of The New York Times Magazine beginning in 1963, and this was his only novel, a brutal view into the lives of gay male culture in the 1970s (set almost entirely in Manhattan gay bars of the late 1960s), and its relationship to crime and police brutality. Basis for the 1980 film, directed by William Friedkin and starring Al Pacino, Paul Sorvino and Karen Allen. Fine and unread in a Fine dust jacket. Scarce in this condition and rare with any kind of association.

The usual suspects pictured here include Jonas Mekas, George Maciunas, Emmett Williams, Alison Knowles, Robert Watts, Yoshimasa Wada, Joan Mathews, Geoff and Bici Hendricks, Dick Higgins, Peter Van Riper, Wolf Vostell, Donna and Joe Jones, Henry Flynt, and numerous unidentified participants. Also included is the publisher's loose caption sheet identifying the images. A handsome example of this uncommon item showing some very slight toning along with a discreet half-inch separation along one of the folds. The caption sheet bears two horizontal soft creases that have subsequently been flattened.

        Insomnia or the Devil at Large

      Loujon Press, Albuquerque, NM - 1970, edition "F". () Near fine. 23.5" X 19" wooden box containing: 12 prints by Miller (22" X 17"), a book of Miller's writings housed in a folding multicolored foil wrapper, a large photographic title page of Miller seated on a toilet, a large "half-title" printed on heavy card, two sheets of the Rafu Shimpo newspaper, and signed announcement from the publishers explaining the production delay. The wooden box has a sliding plywood cover with photograph of Miller and brass name plate engraved with "Arthur Goldsmith Jr." and "Ed. F". 4 inches of wood inlay perished from the top of the sliding cover, and one corner of the box has cracked but remains attached. Three of the prints are signed and dated by Miller (as called for in this edition) and have only the very subtlest of bumping to the corners. The book is signed and inscribed to Goldsmith by Jon Edgar Webb and Gypsy Lou Webb and is numbered #42 of 99. The fold edges of the book's foil jacket are lightly rubbed. Edition F was the first of the heavily limited editions of this complex work to have prints signed and dated by Miller, and our copy has three prints signed, as called for. Although 99 copies were planned, it is likely that only 65 were produced, and across all editions, it is likely that only 300 wooden boxes were constructed (Shifreen & Jackson A175f). The present copy was purchased by Arthur Goldsmith Jr, a journalist and collector of art and counterculture books, and includes a poignant signed note from the book's publishers explaining their move from Las Vegas to Tennessee. Jon Webb states "Lou can't take this dusty climate with her emphysema, so we're moving later this month. Believe it will be Nashville, Tenn. That's the plan now. Have no place there yet- must find one when we get there. Hope you like the Miller here- Best Jon + Lou" Jon was to die just months later (June 9th, 1971) in Nashville. Overall a very nice copy of a monumental production with bright, clean plates by Miller. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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

      Viking Adult, New York 1970 - 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.

        THE EYE IN THE TRIANGLE. An Interpretation of Aleister Crowley. Inscribed

      Saint Paul, Minnesota:: Llewellyn Publications, 1970 Presentation Copy. 8vo., A near fine copy in the publisher's black cloth, gilt - in a lightly used dustwrapper. Regardie has warmly inscribed this book to Ursula Greville: "For Ursula / who did some editing on this magnum opus / Love, Francis." {Regardie dedicated AHA! to Ursula Greville a 'loving, generous, devoted friend of many years who, like Aleister Crowley changed the entire course of my life.'} This is a stated First Edition / First Printing. There is some light wear to the board's extremities & to the crown and foot of the book's spine. There are three small page notations on the final free endpaper. The dustwrapper is not price clipped; with the original publisher's price of $10.00 still intact on the front flap. There is a 1" x 2" chip missing from the top right corner of the front panel and a 2" closed tear in the same area. There are several small chips missing from the crown of the DJ's spine. "Aleister Crowley has for years been reviled by the public media as 'The Most Evil Man in the World.' And he has for years been hailed by a small handful of scholars as the greatest of modern mystics, the 'Prophet of a New Aeon.' Now, The Eye in the Triangle appears to clear up some aspects of the dual mystery. In this book Israel Regardie examines the life and work of Aleister Crowley from a sympathetically objective point of view. Many of Crowley's loveliest and holiest works are quoted from sources long out of print. The Eye in the Triangle is essential to an understanding not only of Crowley but of all modern magic and occultism." -- from the book's dustwrapper. Signed by Author. 1st Edition.

        Catlin's North American Indian Portfolio. Introduction by Harold McCracken

      Chicago: Swallow Press Inc, 1970. Large folio. (22 3/8 x 17 inches). 25 tinted lithographic plates, coloured by hand and heightened with gum arabic, all after Catlin.Text stapled, plates unbound as issued, all within original black cloth portfolio, titled in gilt on upper cover. Limited edition facsimile of Catlin's famous work Edition limited to 1000 copies, this number 823. Based on Catlin's work of 1844, the present edition includes a facsimile of the original title page, together with Catlin's preface to the reader and the descriptive text to accompany the plates. An excellent facsimile of this invaluable pictorial record of a "truly lofty and noble race...A numerous nation of human beings...three- fourths of whose country has fallen into the possession of civilized man....twelve million of whose bodies have fattened the soil in the mean time; who have fallen victims to whiskey, the small-pox, and the bayonet" (Catlin Illustrations of the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians pp.3-4). Catlin went on to summarize the native American as "an honest, hospitable, faithful, brave, warlike, cruel, revengeful, relentless, -- yet honourable, contemplative and religious being". He saw no future for either their way of life or their very existence, and with these thoughts always at the back of his mind he worked, against time, and set himself a truly punishing schedule, to record what he saw. The record he left is unique, both in its breadth and also in the sympathetic understanding that his images constantly demonstrate

        CHILDREN OF CAIN. A Study of Modern Traditional Witches. Special "Black Goat" edition, limited to 66 numbered copies

      California: Three Hands Press [Xoanon]., 2011.. First Edition, First Printing. Full Leather. Fine in Slipcase. Octavo. Special "Black Goat" edition. Full Black Goat Leather in felt-lined slipcase, front panel embossed with a skull and crossed bones design by Liv Rainey-Smith, spine titled in silver, hand-marbled endsheets, limited to 66 hand-numbered copies. 344 pages, illustrations, many in colour. The Special editions of this title were sold out almost instantly upon announcement, almost a year before publication. ¶ The mid-twentieth century witnessed the birth of popular occultism in the West, including an interest in witchcraft. At the forefront of popular witchcraft was Wicca, a recension of ceremonial magic and nature worship advanced by Gerald Gardner and Alex Sanders, now widely regarded as a religion. However, lesser-known streams of the witch-current thrived the shadows, having older historical roots, and linked to an ancient body of practice – witch-bottles, knotted cord spells, curses, exorcisms, sexual magic, and charms ranging from the conjuration of angels to protection of livestock and hearth. This was Traditional Witchcraft, whose origin in part lies with the sorcery of the cunning-folk of Britain and Colonial America. Though largely avoiding the popular occult limelight, from 1970 onward, elements of Traditional Witchcraft experienced a partial emergence into the public through such publications as Paul Huson’s Mastering Witchcraft, the writings of Robert Cochrane and Evan John Jones, and Andrew Chumbley’s Azoëtia: A Grimoire of the Sabbatic Craft. Based on over forty years of research and private collaboration with practitioners, Michael Howard’s Children of Cain is the definitive history of Traditional Witchcraft and its key operatives in Britain and the United States. Supplemented with diverse photographs and illustrations, many appearing for the first time, the book artfully encompasses the unique legacy of Traditional Witchcraft - those who bear the Mark of the Exile as a sign of hidden power: the Children of Cain. This book will be of great interest to anyone studying or practicing "traditional" witchcraft. Tracing the roots of witchcraft, the book has in-depth essays on Traditional Witch Ways, The Clan of Tubal Cain, The Regency, The Pickingill Craft, The Horse Whisperers, American Traditional Witches, The Sabbatic Craft and The Old Craft Today, with an extensive Glossary and Bibliography. There are 16 pages of images on glossy paper stock, mostly in colour, depicting portraits of persons discussed within the text, artifacts, and art, including colour artwork by Andrew D. Chumbley and Austin Osman Spare. "The Sabbatic Craft" chapter, which runs some 26 pages, examines in depth the work of Chumbley and the Cultus Sabbati, and is perhaps the best essay extant on this curious and gifted group of initiates. Essential reading.&

        Mr. Sammler's Planet (Signed Association Copy)

      New York: The Viking Press, 1970. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. Bellow's sixth novel and the winner of the National Book Award. A very near fine copy in a very near fine dust jacket with some slight creasing to the front flap and a tiny tear to the top rear corner Signed and inscribed on the front free endpaper: "For Bob Manning with many thanks Saul Bellow Dec 24, 1969." The recipient was Robert Manning long time editor of The Atlantic Monthly who according to his own memoir "was startled to realize that two of the most brilliant American writers, Saul Bellow and Bernard Malamud, had never appeared in The Atlantic so I moved to correct those glaring omissions. Bellow came in the form of a substantial, self-standing excerpt from his "Mr Sammler's Planet, the novel that cut tellingly to the darkening sensibilities of urban America in the sixties, one of the several works that later brought him the Nobel Prize." A great association copy.
