        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.

With frontispiece portrait of Goethe and 25 etchings in the text by Leonard Baskin, and with an additional etched color portrait of Goethe on Japanese paper, signed by Baskin and identified in pencil in the artist's hand as a "touched proof." Printed in Baskerville monotype on Monadnock WvG paper by pressman Harold McGrath. Brook 65. A hint of creasing to gutter edge of additional mounted print, otherwise a near-mint copy, immaculate internally, and in an unworn binding. This is the limited version of a lovely little work from a leading American private press, bound by one of the best living binders in the country. The text is Goethe's collection of poems inspired by Islam and the East, presented here with the German text on the left-hand page and the English text, in italics, on the right. The poems are enriched by Baskin's imaginative etchings, and our special copy has a colored etching of Goethe as an older man. Leonard Baskin (1922-2000) was a sculptor, book-illustrator, wood-engraver, printmaker, graphic artist, writer, and teacher. He founded the Gehenna Press in 1942 while still a student at Yale (the name coming from a line in Milton's "Paradise Lost": "And black Gehenna call';d, the type of Hell"). The press has published more than 100 fine books and certainly must be considered one of the most successful private presses ever, given its longevity, its consistently high aesthetic achievement, and the unusual size of its output. In addition to the signed Baskin etching, the full morocco binding here sets our copy apart. Over the years, master New England binder Gray Parrot has produced a substantial amount of very respected work for Dard Hunter, for Pennyroyal, and for other private presses, and his services are highly sought after.

        Louis Armstrong: An American Genius

      Enriched by multiple, carefully preserved additions, including Louis Armstrong's twice signed, inscribed place card from a Friars Club Testimonial Dinner, (for Tom Jones at the New York Hilton, April 17, 1970). On the upper side, L. Armstrong is finely printed in gold by an unknown calligrapher. Inside, Louis Armstrong's pen & ink presentation is carefully done for Bill Moines, longtime columnist for the Worcester Telegram-Gazette in a flowing, buoyant hand. He has signed as Satchmo and Louis Armstrong. The event is meticulously documented by Moines in his neat handwriting on the rear of the card, which is in fine condition, now in an archival sleeve. An insider's note by Bill Moines on the death in Boston of Lucille Armstrong is handwritten in pen & ink on the rear endpaper. Also formerly laid-in, now in archival sleeves, are 3 neatly excised clippings, reviews of the book from the New York Times Book Review and the New Republic, and an obituary for Louis Armstrong's second wife, Lil Hardin Armstrong, taken from the Worcester Telegram-Gazette. A few passages in the clippings are underlined and Moines has noted the publication name and date of issue when they are not identified. SUMMARY: An essential work on Louis Armstrong based on extensive original research and the first comprehensive biography to demythologize his life story. It was much praised for this and at the same time criticized for its equally independent critical appraisal of Armstrong's music and recordings. Collier, an accomplished trombonist has written extensively on American jazz music. PLACE CARD: with intrinsic, horizontal center fold design (to stand propped up), open size-80 x 100 mm, inscribed and signed in blue ink twice on the inside of the card by Louis Armstrong. CONDITION DETAIL: Card: Fine. Clippings: Excellent with customary folds. Book: Pages: as new. Covers: fresh and clean with one light ding on the bottom edge of the lower side. Binding: Fine. Jacket: bright and clean, price on jacket flap; the upper side with one tiny spot of wear on the top edge, adjacent to crown (of spine); lower side with area of light wear on bottom edge. PAGINATION: Confirmed complete, ix, preliminaries; 383 pages with notes, discography and index; illustrated with a center suite of plates, 16 pages of captioned, b/w illustrations, principally photographs. ADDITIONAL IMAGES: by request.

        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.

        The Sopping Thursday

      NY: Gotham Book Mart, 1970. One of twenty-six deluxe lettered copies, signed by Gorey, with an original drawing laid in. The drawing, a pen and ink wash, depicts a cat sitting in a little toy wagon in the rain, next to an ominous boot-scraper. This is an additional illustration not published in the book, which recounts the events of a rainy day, including a dog’s search for his master’s umbrella and much speculation about the weather. The Sopping Thursday is the first of only three of Gorey’s primary works that included original drawings with the deluxe editions. This title, therefore, is extremely rare in the deluxe state. Troubador Press proprietor Malcolm Whyte writes, “Captivating as Edward Gorey’s printed illustrations are, his art is even more so in the original. Here we see his hand at work as lines thicken and thin out with varying pressure... A sense of immediacy brings the art alive.” Spine label slightly toned, else very fine in illustrated boards. Housed in a gray slipcase.
