        [Poster or broadside]: Unlock Marijuana Bring Back the $5 Fine! Vote Yes - April 1

      no publisher [Ann Arbor: no publisher. 1974]. Approximately 12" x 20". Printed in red. Old faint fold, else fine. Central image of a marijuana leaf behind bars. Original campaign poster in favor of Ann Arbor charter amendment Section 16.2. In the wake of the infamous John Sinclair arrest (a ten year sentence for two joints) and the election of two Human Rights Party members to the city council, Ann Arbor passed an ordinance in 1972 making the possession of less than two ounces of marijuana a $5 fine. The state threatened to move state troopers into the city in order to enforce the stricter state laws. The city repealed the law in 1973. Voters mobilized on April 2, 1974 and passed an amendment to the city charter that reinstated the $5 fine and the law remains of the books to this day. .

        Road to Kaluga

      Heinemann, U.K., 1974. First Edition. Binding: Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 232 pages. ' As the Grande Armee of Napoleon pushed the Russians back towards Moscow, Major Orlov, a handsome, aristocratic Staff Officer, knew that the wounded would be abandoned in Smolensk to certain captivity and even death. Although badly injured himself, Orlov's sense of duty impels him to lead a company of wounded Russian soldiers away from the battle-scarred city under cover of night. They leave Smolensk burning in the distance and start their perilous journey to Kaluga and safety. They have not gone far when they come on a deserted inn - deserted except for a young woman, the Countess Irina Barova. She accepts Orlov's offer of help and soon Orlov finds that he has involved himself in something which will change the entire course of his life. Together the band of wounded Russians face problems of disease, of extreme weather conditions, of villages deserted and bridges destroyed and, above all, they face the constant threat of French attack. In this highly readable historical romance, Dinah Dean conveys the spirited air of camaraderie which develops among the wounded men and the growing love of Orlov and Irina Barova in the midst of the vividly recreated horrors of the Napoleonic War '.

        Souvenirs de Vacances [SIGNED]

      Robert Laffont Paris: Robert Laffont, (1974). Numbered limited edition. Hardcover. vg. 1/2500. 68 loose color & b/w reproductions of photographs by David Hamilton of women and teenage girls (many in the nude) resting in tan cloth clamshell box with mounted photographic color reproduction on front board, as issued. Includes one photograph with artist's original signature below image. Plates captioned with cursive handwriting in facsimile. 2 double-page fold-outs (including half-title& title-page) with introduction by Denise Baye. In America and the UK, the British photographers works have been the subject of some controversy since the artist often depicts teenage girls in the nude. Because of differing attitudes regarding age and nudity, Hamilton has not received this negative attention in his adopted home of France, nor in other countries. Corners of box slightly bumped, minor staining on boards. Closed surface tear on lower edge of clamshell box compartment, firmly holding. Captions and all other text in French. Clamshell box in overall very good, plates in near fine condition. Complete signed portfolio.

      The Viking Press New York: The Viking Press. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Fine. 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).New York: Viking Press, (1973). Octavo, original orange cloth, original dust jacket. Book near-fine with creasing to small section of text block; dust jacket price-clipped and with small ink number ("1049") written on front flap; otherwise dust jacket remarkably bright and fine with no edgewear.

The uncorrected proof copy is inscribed by the author to noted bookseller Burt Britton: "Dear Burt - I am sorry you have this - I am sorry I could not prevent this edition with its changes made by an impertinent copy editor, and a publisher who refused to print corrections to original copy, and all the changes and revisions I felt necessary after seeing these proofs. The paperback is right. Tillie." Olsen has also signed her name in full on the same page; written an illegible note ("genuine ...."), initialed the front cover; corrected the publication date on the information sheet on the inside front cover; and added "and an unnamed copyeditor" to the author credit. A hint of spine sunning, else fine in wrappers. Together with a review copy of the first edition, signed by Olsen on the title page, and inscribed by her under the front flap: "For Burt Britton, Book Lover - See note in uncorrected page proof. Thank you for caring for this anyway. Tillie Olsen 1976." Fine in a very near fine, mildly spine-sunned dust jacket, with review slip laid in. Books inscribed by Olsen -- whose handwriting is so tiny as to be almost unreadable -- are uncommon. The proof and the book are housed together in a custom clamshell case. . First Edition.

        The Killer Angels

      David McKay NY: David McKay, (1974). First edition. Author’s second novel, which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1975 and was the basis for the film Gettysburg. Because of the poor production quality, this is a book which is not often encountered in very fine condition. Aside from light foxing to top edge and a trace of shelfwear, this is a fine copy in blue boards, with a bright, price-clipped dust wrapper, which has two short closed tears to spine foot.

      (London): New English Library. (1974). The first British edition of his first novel, basis for one of the defining movies of the '70s and the beginning of one of the most remarkable writing careers in the history of American letters. Signed by the author. A strip of glue residue to each pastedown where a previous jacket protector was attached; thus near fine, in a near fine dust jacket with very small corner chips. The British edition of Carrie is considerably scarcer than the American edition, if only because of the relative size of the two countries, the U.S.A. and Great Britain -- the U.S. being approximately five times as populous as the U.K. -- and the resultant size of their publishing industries. As an indicator of that, one online listing site currently shows over 100 copies of the American first edition of Carrie available for sale, and only six copies of the U.K. first. Scarce, especially signed. . First Edition. Hardcover.
