        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.

        IF WE TAKE [Inscribed Association]

      [Los Angeles]: Black Sparrow Press, 1970. First Edition. 12mo. String-tied stiff printed wraps. Near fine with touches of rubbing, soil. One of 350 copies. INSCRIBED by Bukowski to Harold Norse: "12 -27 - 69 / For Hal Norse - / We've both been / through the fire, / dear friend, and / there's more to come - / more fire more o / so much more fire, / and we can only / wonder if we will / kill ourselves first, / or they. No matter - / they will never know. / yrs, / Charles Bukowski." Bukowski has also added to inside of front cover an illustration of a man smoking, signed "Buk. An extraordinary and warm inscription in the first of many Black Sparrow greetings Bukowski would do for the press. Norse, perennial literary scenester and author of the classic cut-up novel Beat Hotel, was a frequent Bukowski correspondent beginning in the mid 1960's, and it was Norse who recommended Bukowski to Penguin Press for their Modern Poets series (he and Norse appeared together in the thirteenth installment) -- then Bukowski's highest-profile appearance to date. But the two didn't meet in person until January of 1969, a little less than a year before this inscription. Norse recalls the experience in his book MEMOIRS OF A BASTARD ANGEL: "I knew that a wild Falstaffian ruffian had come to shake things up with more fiction than fact, more fantasy than truth [...] Bukowski was misshapen [...] He looked [...] down and out" (p. 420). And indeed, the poet was down and out: frustrated at his job for the Post Office and desperate to find a way to support himself from his writing alone. He would soon find that opportunity later the same year when Black Sparrow publisher John Martin famously offered Bukowski a guaranteed $100 a month for life if he wrote for the press full time. According to Martin, their agreement went into effect January 2nd, 1970 - just six days after this inscription and only a few weeks before Bukowski completed his first novel, Post Office. Norse and Bukowski remained life-long -- if contentious -- friends and correspondents (a collection of their letter has been slated, but delayed, for publication since 2002). Quite simply, one of the closest and warmest Bukowski associations we've seen, capturing the poet at a pivotal moment in his career. [Krumhansl 31]. [Morrow and Cooney 74].

        18th Century Bahamian Copper Slave Auction Tag

      Bahamian circular slave auction tag with “Lot 7” imprinted upon its face. The copper disc measures roughly 1.12” in diameter. Ex-Christopher Gordon, by inheritance; found during building works on the Hilton Hotel site, New Providence, 1960s (with explanatory letter). Copper, 6.48 grams, verso blank. Very good condition. Christopher Gordon, who inherited the pieces, details how he came to inherit a variety of historical artifacts stating “...my parents spent some time in the Caribbean during the early 1970’s… Whilst in the region they collected up quite a few historic artifacts, mainly from locals they met who generally gave them the pieces… The copper discs are the most interesting, they date from the C18th and are auction lot tags. What makes them unique is that they are slave auction tags that would have been tied to an African prior to being sold. The discs are different sizes but it is clear that they were both made at the same time, the lettering being stuck from the same dies [one disc in this offer]. From what I remember, these were given to my parents whilst on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas. On the waterfront there is a large hotel, I think part of the Hilton Group,[sic] This hotel was rebuilt a number of times and the tags were dug up when trenches were being dug for pipes, I assume in the late 60’s era. The hotel is located very close to the main dock and site of the former slave market, known as “Vendue House” where for many years traders unloaded and sold their slaves. There are pictures of this building on the internet, it was restored in the 1980’s.” During the 18th and early 19th centuries the agriculture industry in the Bahamas, then a colony of the United Kingdom, was heavily reliant on slave labor. The first slaves were brought into the country by the Spaniards who had depleted their previous workforce that was comprised of the Bahamas’ indigenous people, the Lucayans. This practice continued throughout the first half of the 18th century. The slave population of the Bahamas however, did not experience rapid growth until roughly 1770. Land grants provided incentive for many Americans who were still loyal to the British crown to migrate to the Bahamas. Prior to the start of the migration the Bahamas’ population was roughly 4,000 people, two thirds of them black slaves. By the late 1780’s the white population had doubled and the black population had tripled, as each newcomer brought with him anywhere from ten to one hundred slaves. The nation’s most populous island, New Providence, was where the vast majority of the slave industry was based. The only market on the island was the Vendue House, which was a large building in the port city of Charles Town. Everything from spices to slaves was sold at the Vendue House. When slaves in were put up for auction each received a lot number, like the one featured on this copper disc. The Vendue House and the slavery industry in the Bahamas as a whole would continue to operate successfully into the early 19th century when the United Kingdom abolished the slave trade.

        ALS: 2 original letters from Julia and Paul Child to Richard Gildenmeister, with an original photograph and several newspaper clippings

      Two original letters from Julia Child, dated 1970 and 1976. The first, handwritten by Julia on stationary from the Barclay in Philadelphia and dated November 3rd (postmark indicates 1970), reads: "Dear Dick: Would that we were not so far away from you and Higbees, and from the Cleveland we saw so little of. Our warm welcome from all of you has made us sentimental about you, and we hope to come back again, stay longer, and feel that we can really have time to get acquainted. Please give our warmest remembrances to everyone, especially the Kordalski's, Strawbridges. Claudette, and all the good people in the book store. Our thanks to you, in particular, for first-class arrangements. Love from all of us to all of you. Paul + Julia Child". The second letter is typed on letterhead from the Ecole des Trois Gourmandes, dated April 2, 1976: "Dear Richard: We've just returned from 3 months in France, and I am enjoying your letter written I don't know when, but after we missed seeing you, to our most profound regret- remembering the good time we had with you some years ago. And now we most sincerely hope you are out of the ho0spital and perfectly all right- awful to be there having tests and not to know what the H. is wrong. We pray all is fine. You said you wanted an autographed book, so I am enclosing one of our paste-on slips, signed by both of us, that you can put in your copy. All is fine here with us, and spring is very slowly poking her lovely head out of the ground in the form of crocuses. Take good care of yourself, and congratulations on your new big job! Affectionately, Mrs. Paul Child". The letter is signed, simply, "Julia", and the mentioned paste-on slip is also included, a printed plate with a small illustration, inscribed in Julia's writing, "Bon Appetit- and all the best to Richard Gildenmeister", and is signed by both Julia and Paul. Included with this lot are a series of newspaper articles about Child, and an original 8 x 10 glossy silver gelatin photograph of Julia Child and Richard Gildenmeister at a book signing. Richard Gildenmeister is a renowned book dealer who maintained friendly correspondence with many prominent writers and celebrities through the late 20th century.

        In Pursuit: An Autobiography

      The Medici Society London: The Medici Society, (1970). Small folio. (266) pp. One of 1050 copies signed by Francis Russell Flint, the artist's son. This richly illustrated work covers the varied career of this Scots artist, perhaps best known for his work with the Riccardi Press. It was published on what would have been Flint's 90th birthday, in accordance with his wishes; but he passed away just five months shy of that milestone. This book has been specially bound by Elizabeth Greenhill in full blue Oasis, featuring her characteristic "cloud" design comprised of multi-colored onlays. Here, the onlays are turquoise, black, green, pale red, and gray. These are interspersed with small straight horizontal lines tooled in gilt. Spine title in gilt. A.e.g. Greenhill credits John Harthan with coining the term "cloud" to describe her most typical binding style. He notes that this treatment is most often given to poetry, and that the variations in design and color "establish the binder's personal reaction to specific texts." In the present example, which was bound in 1971, the small gilt lines streaking across both panels almost seem like a horizontal rain against these colorful formations. Very fine in morocco-backed folding case.
