        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".
