        In Pursuit: An Autobiography

      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.

        Insomnia or the Devil at Large

      Albuquerque, NM: Loujon Press 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..

        24 Pieces

      [Los Angeles]: Sunday Quality, [N.d. but 1970]. Label of the Pasadena Art Museum, else fine in white spiral-bound wrappers.. First Edition. Spiral-bound oblong octavo. Edition of 600 copies. Design and photography by Gary Krueger. INSCRIBED by Ruppersberg as follows: "Note / the newspaper shown in one of the / "pieces" is only a marginal / statement and is not meant as / any kind of blanket over-simplification / for the entire book. Al Ruppersberg." An artist's book in the style of Ruscha and Feldmann: black and white images of hotel interiors are juxtaposed with banal domestic or landscape scenes, some of which are staged. The newspaper Ruppersbeg mentions in his inscription has a headline that reads "Art is Everywhere" and has been placed on an coffee shop table yet to be bussed. A clever and fascinating book, despite the truth in the artist's disclaimer.

        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.

Fine in a lovely example of the original suppressed dustjacket, featuring the nude Hoffman's embracing in Nixon and pig masks. Dustjacket is unclipped with some trivial rubbing, else very Near Fine. & & One of the earliest titles (and certainly one the of earliest novels) published by the short-lived Straight Arrow imprint, the publishing arm of Rolling Stone.

        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. Bit of soiling to fore-edge else clean and unmarked with light wear. A quality copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
