        Typescript of She and He.

      - Hampstead, [ c. 1971]. Quarto 'IXL File', ff. [v, stencilled title, biography of the author, statement of fictionality, quotations from Edith Sitwell and T. S. Eliot, prefatory statement], 86, [1, sectional title], 87-306, [1, sectional title], 307A, 307-321, 321A, 322-379; file somewhat worn and bent; final leaf loose, penultimate leaf with a few marginal stains, title a little spotted; author's address and phone number in red ink on title; typed and signed letter by the New York publisher Arthur W. Wang to Brata, dated 1967, New Statesman printed manuscript refusal note and 4-page typescript essay by Brata titled Cries of a Trapped Liberal loosely inserted. She and He, the author's second novel appeared in New Delhi in 1973 and focuses, after the Confessions of an Indian Woman Eater on the sexual exploits of the hero, of Arab and French extraction, who lives in Hampstead, wants to write and talks about the 'Great English Novel'. The version of the novel is here titled Put in your Breast a Stone, and one interesting aspect of the book is that his ex-girlfriend sends him an unfinished novel, having written her side of the story, with blank pages (marked as such in the typescript) for the hero and narrator to fill in. Sasthibrata Chakravarti was born in Calcutta, in 1939, worked in Europe as a lavatory attendant, kitchen porter, barman, air-conditioning engineer, and postman, and in New York as a freelance journalist.

        The Anatomical Basis of Medical Practice

      Baltimore, MD: The Williams and Wilkins Company, 1971. First edition. Hardcover. Very good. 907pp. Quarto [28.5 cm] in decorative green cloth with gilt titles. Ex-library, with library spine label and pocket removed (leaving light residue on spine and front pastedown, respectively). Light soiling to boards; rubbing to extremities; excepting light library markings, interior is unmarked. B&W photogrAPhs and illustrations. This unassuming-looking medical textbook provoked a great deal of controversy with its inclusion of highly sexualized nude photographs of women, along with the objectification and dismissal of women in the text itself. Accounts conflict as to whether the book was actually removed from shelves by the publisher, or if it was allowed to die a natural death in the marketplace. Either way, it was resoundingly panned, little-used, and never had a second printing. At the time it was published, women comprised about 10% of medical students.

        Canto y grito mi liberacion (y lloro mis desmadrazgos...)

      El Paso, TX: Mictla Publications, 1971. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good/Good. 8-3/4 by 11-1/4 inches. Sánchez's first book, a key collection of poetry from the Chicano Movement. Sánchez spent most of the 1960s in prison where he earned his GED and began writing. He later went on to receive a doctorate and became one of the leading figures in Chicano poetry. Lomelí and Urioste call this book 'An excellent poetic manifesto.' It is also one of the key works of the Chicano Movement. Reprinted several times, this is the only edition in a large format that allows Sanchez's poems to spread out on the page as he intended. Illustrated by Manuel Acosta, with line drawings and two lovely color plates. Reportedly one of 2000 copies, but much scarcer than the print run would suggest. First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a good dust jacket with a four-inch tear repaired with Japanese tissue. With a wonderful inscription to a radical poet of an earlier generation: 'Para Walter Lowenfels--more than an equitable society, mon frere, is the need for a humanistic affirmation. Viva La Causa y que brote la hermandad. Ricardo Sanchez 5/23/72.' A very nice association copy.

        Delivery Hat

      1971. Four colour lithograph. 16 x 11.5 cm, edition of 70, signed and numbered. This small but striking print, from the ‘Cold Light’ suite of 1971, was created during a period of Rosenquist’s life in which he was suffering depression, following a serious car accident which placed the artist and his family in hospital for an extended time. The series questioned American government’s focus on space exploration, to the detriment of civic care. ‘Why aren’t we doing something on the ground instead of spending money going to the moon? We can’t eat the moon’ (Glenn, p. 51). The image, showinga lone hat placed in a cosmic setting, is ‘punctuated by a cold, white mooncircle that Rosenquist used to illuminatepersonal stories, remembrances, and the political climate of the moment'. Constance Glenn, Time Dust. JamesRosenquist Complete Graphics : 1962 – 1992, New York : Rizzoli, 1993, pp 48-50 (illustrated); Glenn, no. 35.

Spoils: Publisher's chestnut-brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt; pictorial dust jacket priced £4.90. Fine (save for previous owner's inscription in a neat hand on front fly leaf), in Fine jacket. Scott's "painstakingly researched Quartet which examines the lives of ordinary Anglo-Indians against the background of the end of Empire [the five years from the Quit India campaign of the Congress Committee to Indian independence, in 1947]. These novels constitute Scott's principal claim to be regarded as a major post-war writer [The Times, in fact, called Scott's quartet "one of the most important landmarks of post-war fiction."] . . . . The Quartet is still perhaps underestimated as an analysis of the pre-Independence roots of the racism Salman Rushdie identified in the 1980s under the label 'the New Empire within Britain.' Scott sacrificed his life to the writing of the Quartet, becoming something of a monomaniacal recluse with tendencies toward alcoholism and occasional domestic violence. His death from cancer, in 1978, in London came at the time his work was just beginning to be appreciated." (The Literary Encyclopedia) TN. B.

        Space and Time Perception by the Cosmonaut

      Moscow: Mir Publishers, 1971. First edition in English. Light wear at extremities, generally fine. 12mo. 199, [2]pp. Three color plates reproducing Leonov's paintings, one color plate "Some of the visual illusions arising in the weightless condition," and black-and-white diagrams and photos in text. Original pictorial wrappers, the front cover showing a cosmonaut floating in space. An important first-hand account of space exploration and the effects of space travel on medicine from the first person to walk in space. Alexei Leonov made the first extra-vehicular space walk on 18 March 1965 during the Voskhod 2 mission. For 12 minutes, he floated outside his capsule, tethered above the earth. At the end of his spacewalk, Leonov's suit had inflated in the vacuum of space and he was unable to enter the airlock. He released pressure on the suit by opening the valve and was barely able to get back inside the capsule. This pioneering space walk was considered a crowning achievement for Soviets, and a defining event in the space race. The co-author, Dr. Vladimir Lebedev, was a leading specialist is space psychology, and he contributes insights into certain psychophysiological problems of space and time perceptions in spaceflight conditions. In addition to Leonov's work as a cosmonaut and pilot, he is an accomplished artist, and two of his paintings of earth from space illiustrate this book. Leonov took colored pencils and paper with him on his missions, and sketched the earth and drew portraits of his colleagues. Arthur C. Clarke's novel '2010: Odyssey Two' is dedicated to Leonov and Russian nuclear physicist Andrei Sakharov.

        Collection of letters to Jagdish Mehra

      1971-79 1971 - Salam, Abdus (1926-96). Collection of correspondence consisting of five typed / autograph letters signed to historian of physics Jagdish Mehra (1931-2002), plus three letters to foundations regarding grants for Mehra’s Historical Development of Quantum Theory; complete list available on request. 13 sheets total, plus covers for several of the letters. V.p., 1971-79. Very good. Salam, one of the leading figures in 20th century theoretical physics, made notable contributions to quantum mechanics and quantum field theory, receiving a share of the 1979 Nobel Prize in physics for his contribution to the electroweak unification theory (the unified description of the weak and electromagnetic interactions between two elementary particles). He was the first Pakistani and first Muslim to receive a Nobel Prize in science, and the second person from a Muslim country, after Anwar Sadat (Peace, 1977), to receive any type of Nobel award. The correspondence includes four typed letters signed from Salam to Mehra regarding Mehra’s contribution to Aspects of Quantum Theory (1972), a festschrift in honor of Paul Dirac’s seventieth birthday edited by Salam and E. P. Wigner. Salam praised Mehra’s paper ("’The golden age of theoretical physics’: P. A. M. Dirac’s scientific work from 1924 to 1933") as "a wonderful article" and told Mehra that "Dirac saw and liked your paper." Also present is an autograph letter signed from Salam to Mehra discussing an unidentified paper by Mehra: "Parts of it are splendid—make me blush . . . However, one part could be disastrous . . . I hope the friends [?] did not take it over as it is, because it could do damage . . ." The remaining three pieces are letters of recommendation from Salam to officials at various foundations to whom Mehra had applied for grants to complete his Historical Development of Quantum Theory (1982-2001).
