        The Botany and Chemistry of Hallucinogens

      Springfield, Illinois: Charles C. Thomas, 1973. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition. xxiii, 267pp. Purple cloth with gilt lettering. Very Good+ with foxed edges and a few of former owner's penciled notes, in slightly soiled and shelf-worn unclipped dust jacket. Binding a little strained from laid-in letters. A collaboration of two titans in the study of psychoactive chemicals, written before their better-known The Plants of the Gods. Schultes is known as the father of ethnobotany, and Hofmann as the father of LSD.Copy of Texas chemistry associate professor Albert R. Machel, author of such articles as "Cyanide Analyses of Peaches." Presentation copy from Schultes, one of only six copies he received from the publisher according to him in a April 24, 1973 letter on Harvard Botanical Museum letterhead; it is included with the book. Schultes writes, "Thank you for your letter of April 2 and for sending the peyote which we value very much for our exhibits." Next paragraph he briefly explains Native American peyote ingestion, and then thanks the former owner for his assistance before the signature line.Also included are three signed, postmarked, single-page letters from Hofmann in Switzerland in Sandoz Labs envelopes and stationary. The first letter from Nov. 6, 1970 thanks Machel for his letter and "four pounds of seeds of Sophora secunidflora," a nicotine-like poisonous plant that Texan Native Americans sometimes ingest before taking peyote. "The quantity you sent me will suffice for the first investigation," Hofmann writes, " I shall ask you again if I need more material," and thanks him for his collaboration.The second envelope, dated September 11, 1972 includes a photocopied typed letter from Hofmann to Schultes about the Sophora secundiflora analysis with Schultes' reproduced holograph along its bottom margin. The enclosed original letter is dated September 8th; in it Hofmann breaks down the results of Sophora, concluding that none of the alkaloids are known to be hallucinogenic, and therefore he is not pharmacologically examining the samples.The final letter from January 26, 1973 regards Machel's previous question about "a general procedure for the extraction of toxic principles from seeds." "No such general procedure exists," Hofmann answers, then briefly outlines some specific extraction procedures.A very special record of correspondence that includes interesting background information on the authors' researches of peyote and the culture associated with its use, spanning the psychedelic era from Sandoz Laboratories (where Hofmann co-discovered LSD in 1943) to the halls of Harvard to rural East Texas.

        Neruda: entierro y testamento

      "In September 1973, Fina Torres, a photojournalist active in Venezuela at that time, was in Santiago during the coup that overthrew the government of the Unidad Popular. She photographed the damage done by the artillery to the facade of the Palacio de la Moneda, the armed soldiers in the streets, and other unsettling scenes of everyday life at the time: the cleaning of painted slogans from the walls, people lining up to buy food, the surveillance of the embassies, and the anguished seriousness of people waiting outside the morgue. Photographs of similar scenes can be found in the photobook Chili September 1973 by Koen Wessing, one of whose images is virtually identical to another taken by Torres. Both photographed a dark-haired girl standing at the door of the nourgue and showing the ID photo of a soldier. Torres decided to repeat the image to show more clearly the features of the young man who had disappeared, and Wessing did the same. Ten days after the coup, the poet Pablo Neruda died in a clinic in Santiago. Torres photographed the funeral procession, which also laid to rest the Unidad Popular and a whole era of leftist aspirations. The procession turned into a demonstration, in spite of the menacing presence of numerous armed soldiers. Fina Torres left a testimony of the vigil held around the dead body of Neruda. As she racalls, she was "the only photographer in the writer's residence on the day of his death." The house had been entered and sacked by the soldiers, an event almost prophesied in the lines "Traitor / generals: / behold my dead house" from España en el Corazon. The photos show empty shelves, ashes from the auto-da-fé, open closets, flooded rooms, and other signs of plunder and destruction - images of the desolation that the deceased poet's relatives, also captured by Torres' camera, seem not to notice"Horacio Fernandez in The Latin American Photobook, p 102.Text in Spanish: Sarmiento Alvaro. 47 BW ills by Torres Fina cm 14x19; pp. 152; paperback in fine condition. A wonderful and rare document of a serious photobook.

        Der Zee-vaert lof, handelende van de gedenck-waerdigste zee-vaerden met de daeraenklevende op en onder-ganghen der voornaemste heerschappijen der gantscher wereld: zedert haere beginselen tot op den dagh van huyden. In VI boecken beschreven. Amsterdam, Jacob Pietersz. Wachter (colophon: printed by Jan Fredericksz. Stam) , 1634. Folio. With letterpress half-title, a splendid engraved allegorical title-page with Neptune and numerous other figures, and 18 large engraved and etched illustrations in text (11.5 x 16.5 cm), including an original etching by Rembrandt: an allegorical scene of the "Ship of Fortune", with a nude figure of Fortune standing in a small sail boat, made for the book, signed "Rembrandt f. 1633". The other illustrations are by Willem Basse. Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      Borba de Moraes, pp. 398-399; Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) I, Basse 49-65; Sabin 31476; not in Cat. NHSM; for the Rembrandt illustration: Bartsch 111; H. de la Fontaine Verwey, Uit de Wereld van het Boek, II, pp.130-131 (also in English in Quaerendo, 3 (1973), pp. 5-6); New Hollstein, Rembrandt 123.II. First and only edition of Herckmans's Der zee-vaert lof (In praise of sea voyages), in Dutch, with one of the very few book illustrations by the great painter and etcher Rembrandt van Rijn (1606/07-1669), here in one of the "early impressions" noted by New Hollstein. The book itself is also of interest, with a long verse poem in six books in honour of voyages from Noah's time to 1632 in chronological order, with extensive marginal annotations, including voyages by Columbus and the other great explorers venturing east, west and to the arctic. It forms a complete maritime history. It is followed by a short (9-page) poem in honour of ship travel on the Dutch rivers, then a 1-page poem in honour of Cornelis Jansz de Haen in 1633. The preliminaries contain additional short poems and a 6-page note to the reader by the author, as well as laudatory verses by Barlaeus, Boxhoorn, Revius, Scriverius and others. Basse's illustrations also deserve praise, though overshadowed by Rembrandt. Sabin quotes Stevens noting all "eighteen exquisite etchings". But the work is primarily and justly famous for containing one of the six etchings Rembrandt made especially as and appearing as book illustrations (in 3 books). With the late 19th-century bookplate of A.C. Burnell. Slightly foxed (including the Rembrandt illustration) and with some water stains (not affecting the Rembrandt illustration). Binding rubbed and dirty, and with cracks in the hinges. Good copy of a very desirable book on maritime history, with an original Rembrandt etching among the illustrations.

        Fragments sur le devenir universel. Eaux-fortes de François Fiedler.

      Sl: Adrien Maeght, 1973. Livre. Illus. by François Fiedler. Très bon. En Feuilles. Dédicacé par l'illustrateur. Grand In-8. Sl, Adrien Maeght, 1973. 28 x 19,5 cm, grand in-8, 2 ff. bl. - 63 ff. n. ch. (125 pp.) - 3 ff. bl., 31 eaux-fortes originales en noir, la première couvrant tout le premier plat de la chemise et 30 hors texte, en feuilles sous couverture blanche rempliée muette, chemise illustrée et étui couvert de velours de l'éditeur. Traduction de Yves Battistini. Tirage à 150 exemplaires, tous sur Arches, avec les eaux-fortes signées par l'artiste. Celui-ci (n° 6) l'un de 25 exemplaires de tête enrichi, sous un grand portefeuille séparé (40 x 30 cm), d'une SUITE de 10 eaux-fortes en couleurs refusées, numérotées et signées. Exemplaire agrémenté d'un ENVOI autographe signé de l'artiste à Pierre Dumayet. Très rare, d'autant que, selon Silvio Corsini, "suite à un accident, la plupart des exemplaires de cet ouvrage ont été amputés de trois gravures. Seuls une trentaine d'exemplaires vendus à l'origine ainsi que quelques exemplaires d'artiste ont échappé à ce sort tragique" (cf. "Revue de la Société Suisse des Bibliophiles", n° 39, 1996, p. 68). François Fiedler (1921-2001), né à Kassa en Hongrie, installé en France dès 1946 est vite repéré par Joan Miro, qui le présente à Aimé Maeght. La galerie Maeght le présente ainsi aujourd'hui : "Outre la peinture, qui reste son principal moyen d'expression, Fiedler va expérimenter durant de nombreuses années les ressources de la gravure à l'eau-forte, mettant en oeuvre des techniques inédites permettant de donner à l'estampe une densité, un relief qui lui confèrent une intensité "dramatique" particulière. La magie issue de l'alchimie propre à la gravure alliée à une démarche esthétique extrêmement rigoureuse se nourrit chez Fiedler d'une interrogation sur l'épreuve, point de départ d'une réflexion sur l'unique et le multiple, sur la notion d'identité, fondamentale dans son oeuvre." Petites usures à l'étui sinon parfait. (inconnu de Monod).

        The Mary Tyler Moore Show ("The Lars Affair"--The July 1973 Revised Script)

      1973 - The July 1973 "Revised Production Script" of one of the great early episodes of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show". Approaching the midway point of this landmark comedy series (1970-1977), this episode, pitting the "Happy Homemaker" against a cuckolded Phyllis, was written by Ed. Weinberger --one of the show's principal creative forces-- and fires on all cylinders, with wonderful performances by Mary herself, Ted, Phyllis and Sue Anne Nivens. This script belonged to --and was lightly annotated by-- one of this episode's writing advisers, a woman who performed stand-up in Los Angeles in the 60s and 70s. The script is crisp and Near Fine in its purple wrappers, with typed yellow pages. Tall quarto, an uncommon example of original source material from the show many feel represents the very pinnacle of television. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Bath: Adams & Dart 1973 - First edition. Small 4to. pp. 163; illusts.; good in the original cloth, worn, the author’s own copy, with his ownership inscription to flyleaf; together with a quantity of related ephemera collected by Abbott, including: 1. A Royal Aero Club menu for a Banquet on 23rd July 1919 to celebrate the crossing, signed by eleven of those present including members of the crew of R.34 and related dignitaries; 2. an original pencil and ink drawing of the R.34 by W. Heath Robinson (approx. 19 x 12cm., dated 1921); 3. a signed photographic portrait of AC2 William Ballantyre, the ‘stowaway’ on the flight; 4. 1p. signed letters from Second Lieut. J. D. Shotter, Major J. E. M. Pritchard, and Rigger Cpl John Forteath, all to Abbott complimenting him on his book, together with further note by Shotter; 5. a contemporary Christmas postcard showing the R.34; 6. 14 modern first day covers commemorating the crossing, one of which is signed by Sgt. A. G. Evenden (Sgt. Engineer on the flight), and another by Ballantyre. In July 1919, His Majesty’s Airship R.34 completed the first round-trip crossing of the Atlantic. The ship departed Scotland on 2nd July, reaching Mineola, New York, on the 6th; four days later she returned to Britain, reaching Pulham, England, on the 13th. The achievement was later described in Patrick Abbott’s book Airship, whose copy is here offered, together with historical and modern commemorative material relating to the flight. Among the signatures that appear on these items are those of several members of the flight: the airship commander Major George Herbert Scott, who died in the R101 disaster in 1930; the second officer Captain G. Greenland; engineering officer John Shotter; Senior Officer Airship Service General Edward Maitland; navigator Major Gilbert H, Cooke; Special Duties Major J. E. M. Pritchard; Meteorological Officer Lieutenant Guy Harris; the stowaway William Ballantyre, who after initially being rejected for inclusion in the voyage out stowed himself on board and was discovered too late to be parachuted off; and engineer Sergeant A. G. Evenden. Other names that appear are: John W. Davis, United States Ambassador; John Bernard Seeley, Secretary of State for War; the aircraft manufacturer Henry White-Smith; the Earl of Atholl, Chairman of the Royal Aero Club; and W. Heath Robinson, whose name appears on the original sketch of the R.34. The collection also includes part of a letter from Olga O’Riordan, whose name (“Olga Buckley”) had originally appeared on the menu, but which “had bene scratched out very firmly”; O’Riordan was among those Abbott thanks in the acknowledgements to his book.

        Writings and Drawings By Bob Dylan.

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1973 - First edition of this collection of Dylan's writings and drawings. Quarto, original glossy illustrated boards, illustrated endpapers. Boldly signed by Bob Dylan in a contemporary hand on the half-title page. Two color ink used throughout, full page line drawings by Bob Dylan throughout. Includes Dylans's poetry and lyrics of his classic work, including The times they are a changin', Freewheelin', Highway 61 Revisited, Blonde on Blonde, John Wesley Harding and Nashville Skyline. In very good condition with some light rubbing and wear. Rare and desirable signed. Dylan's lyrics have incorporated various political, social, philosophical, and literary influences. They defied existing pop music conventions and appealed to the burgeoning counterculture. Initially inspired by the performances of Little Richard, and the songwriting of Woody Guthrie, Robert Johnson, and Hank Williams, Dylan has amplified and personalized musical genres. His recording career, spanning 50 years, has explored the traditions in American song--from folk, blues, and country to gospel, rock and roll, and rockabilly to English, Scottish, and Irish folk music, embracing even jazz and the Great American Songbook. Dylan performs with guitar, keyboards, and harmonica. Backed by a changing line-up of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s on what has been dubbed the Never Ending Tour. His accomplishments as a recording artist and performer have been central to his career, but songwriting is considered his greatest contribution. Dylan has sold more than 100 million records, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. He has also received numerous awards including eleven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award. Dylan has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and Songwriters Hall of Fame. The Pulitzer Prize jury in 2008 awarded him a special citation for "his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power." In May 2012, Dylan received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama. In 2016 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
