        Legs

      New York: Coward, McCann & Geoghegan. (1975). Uncorrected proof. A couple of small smudges or spots on the wrappers, else just about fine. Ownership Signature of Hunter S. Thompson on the front blank. Typed Letter Signed from Senior Editor Peggy Brooks to Thompson sending the proof and soliciting a blurb from him. Ultimately the book appeared with blurbs from Alison Lurie and Doris Grumbach, with nary a word from Thompson as near as we can tell, although he obviously saw fit to write his name in it. Kennedy and Thompson met in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1960 and became lifelong friends after a series of acidic letter between the pair resulting from Kennedy's rejection of Thompson, who had applied for a position at the English-language newspaper where Kennedy was managing editor. Thompson turned his time as a young writer struggling in San Juan into his first novel, The Rum Diary, which was written in the early 1960's but not published until 1998. The first book in Kennedy's celebrated Albany cycle, with a notable association. .

        [High School Yearbook]: 1975 Kalibarb: The Kalibre [bound with several issues of] The Barblet

      DeKalb, IL: DeKalb High School. 1975. First. First and only edition. Screwbound printed yellow binder. Quarto. The wrapperbound yearbook, The Kalibre, bound with ten of twelve possible issues of the school newspaper, The Barblet (lacking issues seven and ten), for author Richard Powers's (here referred to mostly as Rick Powers) senior year of high school. Slight tears in the yellow cloth binder, some pages well-thumbed, student inscriptions in the yearbook, and a couple of leaves loose but sound, a very good example. Powers is pictured on at least three pages in the yearbook, twice in band pictures, and once in the National Honor Society, although curiously, he is not represented by a senior class picture. According to biographies of Powers he spent much of his high school time in Thailand, and only returned to DeKalb to finish high school, and was perhaps thus not present for the photo. He also appears at least three times in the issues of The Barblet, twice playing the cello, and once at a National Honor Society Assembly (we have by no means exhaustively searched the bound volume and may have missed other appearances). According to our research, Powers is the second most important graduate of the high school, after supermodel Cindy Crawford. .

        Made in U.S.A. Catalog 1975 and Made in U.S.A. - 2: Scrapbook of America (2 volumes)

      Tokyo: Yomiuri Shimbun, 1975-1976. Near fine in illustrated wrappers; as nice a set as I have seen.. First Editions. Quartos. Two volume set of one of Japan's most enduring and important magazine publications, a thorough and fetishistic look at American youth culture through its fashion, goods and lifestyle products: jeans, boots, sneakers, tennis rackets, guitars, axes, tents, sunglasses, etc. The precursor to the legendary Japanese magazine Popeye, a treatise on every aspect of the Good Life, and as exhaustive and well documented (and photographed) a catalog of cool consumer Americana in the 70s as has ever been produced, far exceeding in content and aesthetic any American magazine of the time. Japanese magazine culture is almost an institutionalized facet of the society at large: Made in U.S.A. is the apotheosis of this ideal.

        Original poem, 1975

      N.p.: N.p., 1975. A lengthy original poem written by Captain Beefheart on the back of a concert poster, signed "Don Van Vliet '75," with a drawing of a cartoon foot surrounded by musical notes. A letter of provenance from music writer and label executive Bill Bentley explains: "In 1975 I interviewed Captain Beefheart at the Armadillo World Headquarters for the Austin [Texas] Sun. Beefheart was appearing there with Frank Zappa's band, recording a live album [Bongo Fury]. After the interview I asked Captain Beefheart to draw me a picture, since he was doodling as we spoke. He got a poster from another Armadillo show and on the back quickly wrote out this poem. The words flowed out of him spontaneously. He signed it and handed it to me, and then took it back. He added at the end, "Progress is Chanel No. 5 on the rocks," and then drew a foot around those words with notes circling it. He called it his "footnote." As I got ready to leave, I started to fold the poster. He said very loudly, "No!" He took it from me and rolled it up before handing it back, and said "Some day you'll thank me." He didn't want me to crease the poster, knowing it would adversely affect the value. We ran the poem along with the interview shortly after in the Austin Sun." Executed in holograph ink on the blank verso of an Armadillo Productions poster advertising the bands Greezy Wheels and the Doak Sneek Band. 11.5 x 17.5 inches. Very Good plus with some tape bruising along the left edge of the verso and small chip at the top right edge of same.
