        ANCIENT SKIES: Official Logbook of the Ancient Astronaut Society [98 Issues Plus Indexes & Pamphlet; Three Quarters of Full Run]

      Park Ridge / Highland Park, IL: Ancient Astronaut Society, 1974-1998. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. 4to. Majority of issues comprised of a single sheet folded to make [4] pp. Conditions range from very good to near fine, with many showing moderate toning and folding. Issue range is Vol. 1 No. 2 through Vol. 25 No. 5, with 50 of the presumed 150 of those issues (six to a volume) lacking. Also includes two indexes for Vols. 1 through 16, plus various promotional materials, and a pamphlet introducing the A.A.S. published in 1998. Remarkable set of newsletters from this society for the study of ancient aliens, founded in 1975 by Gene Philips (b. 1926), a corporate attorney with degrees from Harvard, Virginia Tech, and Northwestern. In a pamphlet introducing the organization in 1998, Philips summarizes the mission of the AAS as a "search for the evidence which will prove that civilization, technology and intelligence originated in outer space." The AAS was an international organization; the 1998 pamphlet prints a long list of members throughout the world, including many in Switzerland, Germany, Russia, Eastern Europe, and Mexico, among other locations, a large percentage of whom are listed as having PhDs in engineering, astronomy, and physics. ANCIENT SKIES consists largely of contributions from Phillips and these AAS members, all of whom in various ways posit alien involvement in ancient civilizations, especially the Maya, the Aztecs, and the Egyptians.

        THE KILLER ANGELS

      New York: David McKay, 1974. FIRST EDITION. This vivid fictional account of the Battle of Gettysburg recounts the four days of the battle from the viewpoints of various participants, most prominently the Confederate generals Lee and Longstreet, the Union general John Burford, and Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain of Maine. The work took seven years to research and write, and was rejected by 15 publishers, but was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1975. It has been cited by Ken Burns as one of his inspirations for his masterful documentary "The Civil War," which prominently featured Chamberlain, and it is so well regarded among military men that it is one of just two novels on the US Army's list of recommended reading for officer professional development. Shaara (1928-88) did not live to see his book become a bestseller, which only happened after the 1993 release of "Gettysburg," the movie based on it. This is not at all a rare book, but typically it is described by dealers as cheaply made, and it is infrequently found in fine condition.. 215 x 135 mm. (8 1/2 x 5 1/2"). xvii, [iii], 374 pp. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's blue buckram. Original illustrated dust jacket, unclipped. With double-page frontispiece reproducing the American Heritage Battle Map of Gettysburg, and 18 full-page maps showing troop positions at various points in the battle. Just the slightest of wear at top of jacket spine, otherwise a very fine copy in a very fine jacket.

        Le rime di M. Agnolo Firenzuola fiorentino.

      Firenze, (Bernardo Giunta) 0 - In 8° (mm 150x90); cc. 136, (1). Legatura marocchino italiano di fine Seicento o inizio Settecento, piatti incorniciati da tre filetti dorati, dorso riccamente decorato in oro con titolo anch'esso in oro. Risguardi in carta marmorizzata, merletto interno in oro, taglio dorato (piccolo restauro al dorso e al piatto posteriore, angoli e cerniere un po' logori). Marca tipografica al frontespizio al recto dell'ultima carta. Lievi fioriture diffuse, ma nel complesso ottica copia. Prima edizione postuma, curata da Lorenzo Scala, amico dell'autore, e da lui dedicata a Francesco Miniati. Le poesie sono dedicate a Selvaggia (della famiglia dei Buonamici, la donna amata dal poeta), ad Annibal Caro, a Camillo Tonti, a Dada Buonvisa, alle donne di Prato, a Filippo Ciconini (in morte di Bartolomeo Gerardacci), Vincenzo Visconti, Giovanfrancesco Buonamici, Domenico Perini, Verdespina, Santi Quattro, Clemenza Buonamici, Lucrezia Tornabuoni, Martinozzo, Inghirano, Pandolfo Pucci, Giovanni Lanciolina, Giovanbattista del Milanese, Leo Villani (un muratore), Guido Antonio Adimari, Lasca, e Gualterotto de Bardi. Il volume contiene anche imitazioni delle poesie di Orazio, due elegie, una canzone in lode della salsiccia, una canzone in lode del sacro legno, un capitolo in lode alla sete e uno in lode alla morte di un gufo. A pagina 60, con un nuovo frontespizio si apre la sezione "Lagrime di Messer Agnolo Firenzuola nella vioplenta morte d'un giovane nobile napoletano", dedicata alla nobildonna Clemenza Roca di Prato. A pagina 89 ha inizio "Il sacrificio pastorale" (cf. D. Maestri, Le rime di Agnolo Firenzuola: proposta di un ordinamento del testo e valutazione critica, in: "Italianistica", III, 1974, pp. 78-96). Agnolo Firenzuola, nativo di Firenze, seguì le orme del padre, un notaio, studiando legge a Siena e Perugia, dove entrò in contatto con Claudio Tolomei e Pietro Aretino. Dopo la laurea, prese i voti a Vallombrosa e nel 1518 si trasferì a Roma, dove divenne il procuratore dell'ordine nella Curia. A Roma costituì un circolo letterario con i suoi amici di Siena ed Arezzo e fece la conoscenza di P. Bembo, A. Caro e G. Della Casa. Nel 1526 ottenne la dispensa dai suoi voti e contrasse la sifile, che lo afflisse per molto tempo. La principale ragione che lo portò ad abbandonare gli abiti fu l'incontro con una nobildonna romana, moglie di un avvocato, alla quale l'autore si rivolge in molte delle sue opere sotto lo pseudonimo di Costanza Amaretta. Nel 1538 si trasferì a Prato, dove fondò l'Accademia dell'Addiaccio e abbracciò nuovamente la vita monastica, divenendo l'abate del monastero di San Salvatore. Negli ultimi anni di vita fu impegnato in una disputa legale con la sorella per l'eredità del padre e diverse liti con le famiglie locali. Firenzuola morì in totale solitudine a Prato in 27 giugno 1543. Tutte le sue opere, eccetto il "Discacciamento de le lettere inutilmente aggiunte ne la lingua toscana" ("Expulsion of the letters unnecessarily added to the Tuscan language') pubblicato a Roma nel 1524, furono pubblicate postume dal fratello Girolamo, che affidò a L. Scala e L. Domenichi la pubblicazione dei documenti di Agnolo: le "Prose" pubblicate nel 1548; le commedie "I Lucidi" e "Trinunzia" nel 1549; e l'"Asino d'oro", un adattaemnto del capolavoro di Apuleio, nel 1550 (cf. F. Pignatti, Firenzuola, Agnolo, in: "Dizionario biografico degli Italiani", XLVIII, 1997, s.v.). Edit 16, CNCE19198; B. Gamba, Delle novelle italiane in prosa, Firenze, 1835, no. 456; BMSTC Italian, p. 254; Adams, F-503; L.S. Camerini, I Giunti tipografi editori di Firenze, Firenze, 1979, no. 263.

        Facsimiles of Documents.

      - No Publisher. No Date. 5 loose facsimiles of documents relating to John Baskerville. Various sizes, folded. Housed in an envelope address to R.J.L Kingsford. An intruiging group of facsimile documents. With the documents is a letter from Brooke Crutchley to R.J.L. Kingsford, on Cambridge University Press headed paper dated 1 May 1974. "Dear Billy, I am enclosing five facsimiles of Baskerville items which I have come across in the course of clearing my cupbaords. Can you identify them? My first guess was that they were done for Strauss & Dent but Pip says no. Perhaps they were produced by the Baskerville Club. Have you any ideas? I have nine sets in all to dispose of and if you would like one please keep it, otherwise I will no doubt be able to find a suitable home. Yours ever Brooke." Sadly we do not have Kingsford's reply and so cannot know if he was able to shed more light. The five facsimile documents are: A petition by John Baskerville to the Lords Justices applying for patent to a new method of grinding metal plate by machine (small tear at fold, slightly spotted) An autograph letter from John Baskerville to Horace Walpole MP dated 2 November 1762 requesting patronage. An autograph letter from John Baskerville dated 3 Dec 1766 to "Livy" sending him three copies of Virgil. He adds that he would have added as many copies of Horace "but for my wife's zealous impatience" An autograph draft of Baskerville's Will dated 1773. An autograph letter to John Baskerville dated 19th January 1771 from Boulton & Fothergill requesting goods from Baskerville for a customer of theirs. With an anotated note by Baskerville at the end saying that he "makes none of the goods need except Bread Baskets".

Text of letter follows: Dear Sirs: Your readers are entitled to some further comment by me of TIME's report last week on the Boston Globe series about the tragic motor vehicle accident at Chappaquiddick Island. TIME stated that "the biggest obstacle in obtaining (more) details was the continued silence of most of the 10 men and women guests" at the 1969 cookout. Each of these innocent bystanders lost a close friend. Each fulfilled the responsibility of appearing voluntarily in court and testifying under oath to every question. Their testimony is public and has been reprinted in countless paperbacks for anyone to examine. If they now choose not to be interviewed by Globe reporters, I can understand their reasons. Since the accident, their telephone lines have been tapped, they have been offered huge sums of money for "exclusive" stories, and have been the victims of entrapment and blackmail by Watergate plumbers. Even members of supposedly reputable news organizations have deceived and tricked them. As a public figure, I have answered reporters' questions and I shall continue to do so. But TIME readers should be aware that these private citizens have met their legal and public responsibilities and are justifiably entitled to privacy for their families and careers without continual harassment and sensational stories. While these people voluntarily testified under oath, the Globe hides behind an unnamed informant whose uncorroborated, ugly and unfair speculations TIME incredibly identifies as "findings". It does not take a "two-month examination" (TIME quote) of the facts and sword testimony to clearly refute the groundless claim of an anonymous source that Mr. Joseph Gargan allegedly was to assume the blame for driving the car off the bridge. Ten men and women know that I left for Edgartown in my car with Mary Jo Kopechne while Mr. Gargan remained at the cottage. Several of these same people later saw and talked with Mr. Gargan after his rescue attempts and after driving me to the ferry landing. TIME states that "the question of time is important" to establish the truth about the evening's tragedy. But a "most exhaustive ... investigation" (TIME quote) of Sheriff Look's testimony is not required to reveal his fundamental contradictions and inaccuracies. The Globe gave only minimal attention to this, and TIME none at all. A "well-reasoned and well-researched" (TIME quote) review of the Arthur D. Little study of the physical factors of Dyke Road and bridge is not necessary to establish that negligent driving was not involved. The Globe treated that aspect of the report casually, and TIME not at all. The TIME statement that I "stuck ... (to my) ... original story" suggests something sinister. This is grossly unfair. The facts, as I have related them many times, are harsh, complete and cold on their own. It is difficult enough for me to live every day of my life with these facts, with my personal remorse, regret and responsibility for the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, and with my inexcusable behavior after the accident. I accept these with more pain than I can express. TIME has said that "to this day the full truth is obscure". I submit that the full truth has been told but that it has been confused and obscured by the uncorroborated and groundless speculation of unnamed sources. This almost as regrettable to me as the sorrow I bear for the loss of a life and its lasting effect no only on my family but upon the Kopechne family. Sincerely, (signed) Edward M. Kennedy --- CONSIGNMENT --- Shelved in Autographs Folder. Dupont.
