        Morning Glory on the Vine.

      1971. Quarto. Original white cloth-backed blue and silver paper covered boards, title in silver to front board, silver patterned endpapers. With 34 colour and line illustrations, 32 of which are full page. Slight fraying to spine, minor rubbing to extremities; a very good copy. First and sole edition, number 18 of 100 presentation copies of this facsimile manuscript, produced by Joni Mitchell as gifts for her friends. Inscribed by Mitchell on the first page, "For Judy - the lady with the red carnation - throw it to the Greek dancer - give it on Mother's day, plant it in a window box … I hope you are well and happy". The recipient was Judy Collins, with her signature in purple beneath Mitchell's inscription. Collins recorded the first commercially released version of Mitchell's song Both Sides Now in 1967. The song subsequently appeared on Mitchell's 1969 album Clouds, and the friends have performed it together live on a number of occasions. Additionally signed by Mitchell beneath the limitation number on the final page. This book features poems, drawings, and watercolours by Mitchell, including the lyrics to her 1970 song Big Yellow Taxi, and 1971 song Carey, which was inspired by her time living in a cave-dwelling hippie community in the village of Matala, on the Greek island of Crete.

        Memories of Surrealism.

      New York Transworld Art 1971 - colour photo-lithographed etchings from a deluxe set on Japon nacré (1 of 40), aside from the regular edition of 175, signed and numbered "A XX/XL" in pencil, lower margin. 75 x 64cm Created in 1971, Memories of Surrealism consists of 12 hand-signed lithographs with etching, printed in colours. This suite is the quintessential example of Dalinian symbolism and surrealism.

Perhaps more so than any other portfolio created by the artist, Memories of Surrealism provides a glimpse into the most creative corners of Dali's eccentric mind. Includes: Angel of Dada Surrealism Surrealist Flower Girl Ultra Surrealist Corpuscular Galutska Space Elephant Surrealist King The Eye of Surrealist Time Surrealist Portrait of Dali Surrounded by Butterflies Dressed in the Nude in the Surrealist Fashion Crazy, Crazy, Crazy Minerv Caring for a Surrealist Watch Surrealist Crutches Surrealist Gastronomy Michler/Löpsinger 494-505; Field 71-15 A-L.

        Howl for Carl Solomon.

      San Francisco: Grabhorn-Hoyem,, 1971. Quarto. Original beige cloth, colour and gilt illustrated covers after drawing by Robert La Vigne. Fine. First deluxe edition, one of 275 copies signed by Ginsberg, printed by Robert & Grabhorn and Andrew Hoyem on handmade paper from Goudy Modern type, with illustrated cloth binding after a drawing by Robert La Vigne. Ginsberg's masterpiece was first published by City Lights in 1956, in a much-reproduced wrappers format, but this is the first fine press edition. It includes a new note by Ginsberg about the presentation here of Howl for the first time in tandem with the poetic continuation The Names (written 1957, published in the Paris Review 1966), his "autobiographical chronicle of Howl's same radiant persons living & dead adored to specify Names & deeds in extended eulogy - an embodyment of Howl's abstractions". The publisher's advertisement is laid in. This copy has the ownership inscription of Winston Leyland (b.1940), a leading figure in American LGBT publishing who won the Stonewall Book Award in 1980. He established the Gay Sunshine Press in 1975, and his Gay Sunshine Journal (1970-82) was particularly influential for its interviews with prominent gay writers of the era, including Ginsberg himself.

Most of the book pertains to the investment in formal education; my hope is that it is intelligible to those who make such investment decisions, whether they be students, their parents, teachers, academic entrepreneurs, or public agencies.” (from preface) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Signed U.S. Flag Flown to the Moon

      The Moon, 1971. fine. Silk American flag (4" X 6") carried to the Moon and back aboard Apollo 14. Fine condition (gleaming). This comes with an incontrovertible signed letter of provenance on Apollo stationery, but additionally and more pointedly (and reassuringly) this flag is titled and signed, in black ink, directly on 2 of its white stripes in the handwriting of Apollo 14 Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, "Flown to the Moon Aboard Kitty Hawk on Apollo 14, Edgar Mitchell, LMP" an undetachable authenticity, that is better than letters or certificates which can be shuffled (and shuffled they are), as the majority of these flags when seen (if seen) are glued at the corners to a printed certificate, from which they can be removed and replaced with any flag. Furthermore, left over (or faked up) certificates can have said "any flag" added, but not this one, since the signed stripes are indivisible from the flag, and they affirm exactly what it is, and do so on sight, a nice feature if you want to frame it.

        Crow Wakes. Twelve Poems.

      Woodford Green, Essex: printed by Alan Tarling for Poet & Printer, 1971 - Small octavo. Original vellum-backed patterned boards, titles to spine and front in black. Fine. First edition, first printing, signed and numbered by Hughes not once but twice, one of the scarce 100 copies retained by the poet. The title page verso is signed "No. 25 Ted Hughes" and the front free endpaper signed and numbered "Ted Hughes 43/88". The printer Alan Tarling informed the bibliographers Sagar and Tabor that "These poems were excluded for personal reasons from [Hughes's] Crow opus. There were 200, a hundred each going to poet and printer plus 30 review or academic copies. None of mine was signed and each cost £2.25, though I gave some to friends and relatives. All the 'academic' copies were gratis, and said as much in an extra colophon. I don't know how TH's copies were distributed or whether or not they were signed". Hughes had in fact numbered and signed his copies on the title page verso, but later apparently overlooked that he had done this and signed what were presumably his remaining copies from 1 to 88 on the front endpapers. The vice versa order of events is also possible Sagar & Tabor A28. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
