        Four articles documenting the birth of the personal computer industry in the United States. 1. [Advertisement:] 'The totally new and the very first - Mini-computer ... Scelbi Computer Consulting, Inc.,' p. 154 in QST, March 1974. 8vo, pp. 176. 2. TITUS, Jonathan A., 'Build the Mark 8 minicomputer,' pp. 29-33 in Radio-Electronics, July 1974. 4to, pp. 100. 3. ROBERTS, H. Edward & YATES, William. 'Altair 8800 minicomputer, Part I,' pp. 33-38 in Popular Electronics, January, 1975. 4to, pp. 112. 4. ROBERTS, H. Edward & YATES, William. 'Altair 8800 minicomputer, Part II,' pp. 56-58 in Popular Electronics, February, 1975.

      The first announcements of the first three personal computers marketed in the United States, the Scelbi-8H, Jon Titus' Mark-8, and the MITS Altair 8800. "The Altair is widely recognized as the spark that ignited the microcomputer revolution" (Wikipedia). Although these were preceded by the French Micral, sometimes described as the first personal computer, the Micral was only available fully assembled (and was four times as expensive as its US rivals which were sold in kit form), and was used almost exclusively for industrial applications - its handbook stated that "Micral's principal use is in process control. It does not aim to be a universal mini-computer." "In the same mid-1973 time-frame as the Micral made its debut, Nate Wadsworth and Bob Findley, founders of the brand new Scelbi Computer Consulting (SCientific ELectronic BIological, pronounced "sell-bee"), of Milford, Connecticut, designed the 8008-based Scelbi-8H microcomputer, which is now recognized as being the first microprocessor-based computer kit to hit the market ... The first market announce for the Scelbi-8H was a tiny advertisement in the back of the March 1974 issue of QST, an amateur radio magazine. According to the advertisement, Kit prices for the new Scelbi-8H mini-computer start as low as $440! Actually with 1K of RAM the price was some $500. Scelbi-8H was based on the Intel first 8-bit microprocessor - 8008 [which] was capable of addressing 16Kb of memory and started the design of the first series of microcomputers" (history-computer.com/ModernComputer/Personal/ Scelbi.html). "The first "magazine project" microcomputer, called the Mark-8, was designed by Jonathan A. Titus and appeared in the July 1974 issue of Radio-Electronics. It used the Intel 8008 microprocessor and had 256 bytes of memory. Enthusiasts could buy plans from the magazine for a nominal amount, or a substantially complete kit of parts for $350; sales were insignificant" (Roy A. Allan, A Bibliography of the Personal Computer, p. 78). "Radio-Electronics sold 10,000 copies of the blueprints and about 2500 orders were received for the boards. The first home computer, with almost no memory and no means of storing its programs after use, was probably assembled by between one and two thousand people. It spawned the earliest hobbyist clubs but it still looked more like a prototype than a real machine" (Brian Winston, Media, Technology and Society: A History, p. 233). "Today, ... a Mark-8 is one of the most valuable and sought-after of all historical micros. "It was the misfortune of both the Scelbi-8H and the Mark-8 to stumble and fall in the darkness just before dawn. Only a few months later, a New Mexico-based company called MITS - Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems - could not cope with the orders it received when it introduced the Altair microcomputer. "The January issue of Popular Electronics featured the Altair 8800 developed by Ed Roberts of MITS - although the unit on the magazine's cover was only a painted, empty case. It used the Intel 8080 microprocessor, and basic memory was only 256 bytes. A 100-pin bus with 16 slots facilitated expansion of the system with additional memory and peripherals. Kit price by mail order was $397. The Altair 8800 was a startling success, and a flood of orders created severe delivery problems at MITS; in theory, the same computer was available assembled and tested for $621, but customers who ordered a finished unit waited for months while the factory caught up" (Allan, pp. 78-9). "Like the Mark-8, [the Altair] was not a very accessible device, but it sold well to enthusiasts, people who knew enough about electronics to make the 8800 work, and it spawned a whole new world - more clubs sprang up; the first computer shop opened in Los Angeles in July 1975; the first home computing magazine Byte appeared in August; and the first world Altair Computer Conference was held in Albuquerque in March 1976" (Winston, p. 233). "The January 1975 article for Altair excited a Harvard University undergraduate named Bill Gates, and his good friend Paul Allen, and the duo contacted Roberts to write a BASIC language interpreter for the machine. Roberts show his interest, but ... in fact Gates and Allen had no BASIC yet to offer. When they called Roberts to follow up on the letter he expressed his interest, the two started work on their BASIC interpreter, using a self-made simulator for the 8080 on a PDP-10 minicomputer. They figured they had only several weeks before someone else beat them to the punch, and once they had a version working on the simulator, Allen flew to MITS in Albuquerque to deliver the program, Altair BASIC, on a paper tape. The first time it was run, it displayed Altair Basic, then crashed, but that was enough for them to join. The next day, they brought in a new paper tape and it ran. The first program ever typed in was "10 print 2 +2" and after typing "run" it typed back the correct answer: "4". Allen was offered a position by Roberts as the Director of Software and the only member of the software department; Gates, who was then still a student, started working for MITS part-time after he left school. Later, Gates and Allen would leave MITS to begin a company called Micro-Soft. "The January 1975 article would also inspire the creation of the Homebrew Computer Club by a group of Altair 8800 enthusiasts, and from this club emerged twenty-three computer companies, including Apple Computer" (history-computer.com/ ModernComputer/Personal/Altair.html). 4to (277 x 213 mm), pp. 102. Four complete issues in original decorative printed wrappers (address label on front cover of the last three issues).

        A CONFEDERATE GENERAL FROM BIG SUR - INSCRIBED TO THOMAS MCGUANE

      Picador / Pan Books Ltd., London 1973 - Octavo (19.75cm); illustrated wrappers; xii, 116pp. Inscribed by the author on the title page: "This copy is for Tom McGuane / Richard Brautigan / July 16, 1973." Text edges slightly tanned, mild wear and creasing to wrapper extremities, with vertical reading crease to left edge of front wrapper; Very Good. Housed in a custom quarter leather and marbled paper clamshell case. A well-read copy of Brautigan's first novel, bearing a typically subdued inscription to one of his closest friends. Tom McGuane was an on-again, off-again roommate of Brautigan's during the early years he lived in Bolinas, California. Over a nearly 20 year period, the two men would travel together and live near each other between California, Montana, and Key West. They ran in many of the same creative and artistic circles, both men admiring each other's work. McGuane would write a lengthy and generous review of an omnibus edition of Brautigan's work (Delacorte, 1970) in the February 15, 1970 issue of The New York Times Book Review. In William Hjortsberg's exhaustive 2012 biography of Brautigan, he goes on at length to describe how deeply Brautigan admired McGuane - idolized him, even - as an author, as a man, and as a husband. Books inscribed by Brautigan to close, personal friends, are uncommon. Not in Barber. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Gravity's Rainbow

      FIRST EDITION UNCORRECTED PROOF New York: Viking, 1973. EXTREMELY RARE UNCORRECTED PROOF OF THE FIRST EDITION of Pynchon's masterpiece, one of the most celebrated works of modern literature; winner of the National Book Award for 1974. "Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow (1973) is a tour de force in 20th-century literature. In exploring the dilemmas of human beings in the modern world, the story, which is set in an area of post-World War II Germany called 'the Zone,' centres on the wanderings of an American soldier who is one of many odd characters looking for a secret V-2 rocket that will supposedly break through the Earth's gravitational barrier when launched. The narrative is filled with descriptions of obsessive and paranoid fantasies, ridiculous and grotesque imagery, and esoteric mathematical and scientific language. For his efforts Pynchon received the National Book Award, and many critics deemed Gravity's Rainbow a visionary, apocalyptic masterpiece" (Britannica).The uncorrected proof is famously rare: Viking once confirmed that no proofs had been made; in recent years, however, a handful have surfaced.New York: Viking Press, (1973). Octavo, original wrappers; custom box. Fading to spine and top edge or wrappers; a handful of pages with marks in the margin, most likely by a reviewer; crayon "swirl" on blanks at rear. A rare copy of the earliest form of one of the most important American novels of the century. Very Good.

        Captain Cook's Florilegium. A selection of engravings from the drawings of plants collected by Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander on Captain Cook's first voyage to the islands of the Pacific, with accounts of the voyage by Wilfrid Blunt and of the botanical explorations and prints by W.T. Stearn [with] Captain Cook's Florilegium: A note on its production by Joy Law, 1976.

      London: Royal College, 1973. Large folio, with 30 engravings; original black Nigerian goatskin and Japanese silk, housed in a protective buckram case. One of the finest botanical productions of all time. The Royal College of Art's printing of these original eighteenth-century copper-plates appeared in an edition of only 100 numbered copies on specially handmade paper, presented in a specially designed binding by Zaehnsdorf of London. The edition was fully subscribed long before it was completed.When Cook's first voyage returned to London, the original botanical drawings were made into detailed and accurate paintings under Banks' supervision, with reference to the collection of actual specimens. Following this they were engraved, and we know that Banks intended to oversee full publication of the collection of engravings. In fact, only a proof impression was made and the undertaking abandoned. The British Museum (Natural History) holds the original copper-engraved plates, as well as the drawings and specimens themselves, and a set of the proof impressions made from the copper-engravings.Between 1900 and 1905 lithographic copies were made of 318 of these proof impressions and published as "Illustrations of Australian Plants collected in 1770". The copper-plates themselves remained unused, until in 1960 it was decided that the Royal College of Art should print a selection of the most beautiful. The result, after thirteen years of planning and trials, was this splendid production, which for the first time showed the extraordinary strength of the images. Perfectly printed, rich impressions in strong black ink, they show the important botany of the Cook voyage to great advantage, and at the same time make it a matter for regret that no eighteenth-century edition appeared. A fine copy.

        Children's Crusade Kinderkreuzzug Op. 82 A Ballad for children's voices and orchestra... Words by Bertolt Brecht Illustrations by Sidney Nolan A limited facsimile edition of the composer's manuscript

(facsimile of autograph title), 34 pp.1f. (autograph musical manuscript facsimile)6 double-sided plates printed in colour. Includes partial page of manuscript facsimile tipped-in between pp. 18-19 and fragment tipped-in to p. 22, as published. Housed in dark ivory paper slipcase. Signed by both the composer and artist at lower margin of limitation leaf. Binding slightly worn; slipcase slightly soiled. A very attractive copy overall. Limited to 300 copies signed by both the composer and artist, this no. 22. Written to be performed in St. Paul's Cathedral to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the Save the Children Fund on May 19, 1969. "The down-to-earth style and impersonal tone of Brecht's Kinderkreuzzug, a ballad about the death of a wandering band of children in the war-torn Poland of 1939, allowed Britten's anger to surface. The manipulations of a 12-note row appear to symbolize, here as elsewhere, the dying civilization of Europe, reflected through the fate of the children and their dog, whose death ends 'a very grisly piece' (as Britten himself called it) on an unsentimental note." Grove Music Online. "... Britten ensured in two ways that his tribute - to an ideal that is persistently reflected in his own work - should not fall a lifeless victim to stiffly charitable sentiments: he chose a text from Brecht, and he conceived the work for the heterogeneous resources of a school music group - the very skilled Wandsworth School Boys' choir and a large band of percussion players, together with two pianists and an organist. The work that resulted is not directly related to the rest of Britten's output either in genre or in the manner of the muiscal discourse... Of all Britten's works for children, this one most bluntly reminds us how much their world is a microcosm of our own." Evans: The Music of Benjamin Britten, pp. 285 and 292.

        Histoire de ce qui s'est passé au royaume du Japon l'annee 1624.Paris, Sebastien Chappelet, 1628. 8vo. With a woodcut Jesuit seal on the title page. Contemporary tanned sheepskin, blind-stamped with a fleur-de-lys.

      - Alt-Japan-Katalog 1319; De Backer & Sommervogel VI, col. 1973; Cordier, Japonica, col. 311; Lach & Van Kley III, p. 376 & 403; WorldCat (2 copies). Very rare, first and only edition of a translation into French of the "Annual Letter" for 1624, the annual account of the Jesuit missions in Japan written for their superiors in Rome. Although possibly written by Jesuits in Japan, the text was edited by Rodrigues Girão in Macao. First published in its original Italian as a standalone book in 1628, it was immediately translated into Latin, French, Dutch and German. The letter describes the Great Edo Martyrdom of 1623, when 50 Christians were crucified on the orders of the Shogun. Added to that are lives of the principal martyrs and descriptions of previous persecutions of the Christians in Japan, whose religion had officially been banned in 1614. The book ends with various papal letters of support written to the Christians in Japan, which are present both in their original Latin and in French translation. With a library stamp and a manuscript date on the title-page. Some spots and waterstains in the margins, especially in the first 30 pages and some browning; small tear in the final page and stains on the final endpaper. Paste-downs are damaged and loose at several corners and front endpaper is missing. Binding rubbed, particularly on the spine. A good, structurally sound copy.

      [1973?]. Single sheet, octavo (178 x 139 mm). Blue ink on unlined paper, text to recto, second signature to lower verso. Creased from folding, in fine condition. A letter signed "Agatha Mallowan" addressed to Cicily and Jack Courtnedge [sic], who performed in a touring adaptation of Christie's The Hollow.

        Correspondence Archive

      1973-1979. Eleven typed letters signed; one typescript biographical statement; an 8-page hand-corrected typescript of a short story; and an autograph letter signed from Selby's wife, all addressed to Selby's friend, journalist John S. Friedman, who first met Selby after inviting him to speak to his CUNY English class and who later interviewed him for The Village Voice. The earliest piece of writing here (August 24, 1973) is the two-page biographical statement, which is un-addressed. Written in essay form it recounts Selby's near-death experience with tuberculosis in his 20s and how that led to his writing obsession, despite his having "no idea for a story," and his six years of locking himself in his bedroom after work to write Last Exit to Brooklyn. The letters, written 1974-1981 and spanning three addresses (Los Angeles, New York and Greenwich, Connecticut), cover themes such as working on his novel The Demon (unnamed in the letter), but featuring Harry White, "who loved to f*ck," while simultaneously working on a play about salvation and a television movie, for Stanley Kramer, about the third Commandment (remembering the Sabbath); finishing his addiction novel Requiem for a Dream, which opens with the protagonist locking his mother in the closet ("Naturally it takes place in the Bronx. Where else could that happen?"); family; money; politics; the quest to turn his writing into film; and his health. The 8-page short story typescript included here is "A Little Respect," a manic 1978 take on a parent believing his son's (television) screen time is detrimental to his social skills. Lastly, there is an undated letter to Friedman from Selby's wife, informing Friedman of Selby's hospitalization with pneumonia. In all, roughly 20 full pages of text by Selby during a time in his life dedicated to work and family. Selby's novel Last Exit to Brooklyn was one of the taboo-smashing works of fiction published by Barney Rosset's Grove Press in the 1960s, alongside such books as William Burroughs' Naked Lunch and the long-suppressed Tropic novels of Henry Miller. Its frank depiction of drug use, homosexuality and violence made it a pivotal work of transgressive fiction. Pages folded for mailing; near fine. No Binding. Near Fine.

        Nixon thanks longtime friend Jack Dreyfus for his invitation to revisit his island home off the Maine coast "at this time," ostensibly because Vice President Agnew had just told him that there was a federal investigation into certain of his own affairs while he served as Governor of Maryland just prior to his inauguration as Vice President

      Washington, DC, August 6, 1973. 6.75" x 9". "Typed Letter Signed ""RN"" as President, 1 page, 6.75"" x 9"". Washington, August 6, 1973, pale green White House stationery with the presidential seal blind-embossed at top center. To Mr. Jack J. Dreyfus, Jr., Two Broadway, New York. Faint paper clip impression at top edge. With original envelope. Fine condition.In full, ""It is most gracious of you to invite Pat and me to revisit your beautiful home on Minot's Island. We have spoken often of the delightful time we spent there several years ago and we know how enjoyable it would be for us to come again. While we must forego another such visit at this time, Pat and I thank you for your thoughtfulness and want you to know how very much we appreciate your remembrance of us in this special way. Pat joins me in sending our very best personal regard."" In August 1971, exactly two years earlier, President and Mrs. Nixon had vacationed on Minot's Island, an island off the coast of Maine owned by Jack Dreyfus.Undoubtedly, President Nixon told his longtime friend Jack Dreyfus ""we must forego another such visit at this time"" to his ""beautiful home on Minot's Island"" because on August 2, 1973, just four days earlier, his Vice President, Spiro T. Agnew, had received a letter from a federal prosecutor informing him that there was an investigation into certain of his affairs by a grand jury in Baltimore; Agnew had served as Governor of Maryland from 1967-1969. On August 6th, the day President Nixon wrote this letter, Agnew met with Attorney General Elliot L. Richardson and informed the press of the investigation. On August 7th, the day the letter here offered was mailed and postmarked, Agnew met with Nixon at The White House. On August 8th, in a news conference, Agnew denounced charges against him that had appeared in the press and said he would not resign. Agnew resigned on October 10th.Financier Jack Dreyfus (1913-2009) was the founder of the Dreyfus Fund. In 1964, Life magazine called him the “Maverick Wizard Behind the Wall Street Lion,” in reference to the emblem of his fund and its aggressive marketing. Dreyfus, it said, was “the most singular and effective personality to appear in Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch.” His paternal grandfather was a first cousin of Alfred Dreyfus, the protagonist of the late 19th-century anti-Semitic scandal known as the Dreyfus Affair. Dreyfus sold his mutual fund company in 1970 and established the Dreyfus Health Foundation to pursue other medical applications for Dilantin which had cured his depression in the 1960s. In 2000, Dreyfus said that an account in The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon by Anthony Summers (New York: Viking, 2000) that he gave Dilantin to Richard Nixon in 1968 was correct. Dreyfus said he gave Nixon a bottle of 1,000 capsules of 100 milligrams each ''when his mood wasn't too good,'' and later gave him another bottle of 1,000 capsules."
