        SNIFFIN GLUE. Volumes 1 to 12.

      Mark Perry. London. 1976/77. First Editions. Quartos. Mimeograph stapled magazines. Original issues of numbers one to twelve, a complete run of the Fanzine (two supplements, or special issues, were published but are not present here). Complete with the original flexi-disc single Love Lies Limp, by Alternative TV on SG Records as issued with number 12. All issues are generally in very good condition, with some staple rust to a couple of volumes, two closed tears to the rear wrapper of volume two, and the odd finger mark to margins here and there. Housed in a purpose made chemise and black cloth slipcase with leather label to the spine, ruled and lettered in gilt. ---------- Sniffin' Glue, the first punk fanzine, was produced by Mark Perry in July 1976 a few days after seeing US punk band The Ramones for the first time at the Roundhouse in London. He took the title from a Ramones song 'Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue'. The early days of the Punk movement largely failed to attract the attention of television or the mainstream press, and Sniffin' Glue remains a key source of photographs of, and information about, contributors to the scene. NME acclaimed "Sniffin' Glue" as "the nastiest, healthiest and funniest piece of press in the history of rock'n'roll habits" and it really became the true chronicle of the early days of British punk rock as well as pioneering the DIY punk ethic. Later, some called it the Bible of the punk movement. For the final issue Mark's sidekick Sniffin' Glue photographer, business affairs and later band manager Harry Murlowski recorded Love Lies Limp released as a flexi disc record, the first release from Mark Perry's band, Alternative TV. Fearing absorption into the mainstream music press, Perry ceased publication in 1977. In the last issues he encouraged his readers to follow him with their own punk fanzines.

        THE QUAKER

      TRITON PRESS U.S.A. 1976 - The stunning Andrew Wyeth Metropolitan Exhibition in 1976 was one of the great successes in that gallery's history. After the close of the show it was agreed to issue a special Collotype of one painting, the image that had been most requested; THE QUAKER. Andrew Wyeth considered this to be one of his best temperas, and it certainly received the approval of critics and the public. Thomas Hoving, the Director of the Met, worked with Harry Lerner of Triton Press to bring about a faithful image of this never reproduced work, and Wyeth agreed to approve every stage. 'The final result has my complete approval' declared the artist at the end of the long process, and each print was then fitted into a scrupulously exact copy of the original frame. There is a discrete blind embossed Triton logo in the lower left corner of the print, which guarantees the absolute authenticity of the print. This particular example has been carefully stored in a low light environment, and it is magnificent. When a rare copy of this extraordinary issue comes to an auction house, in its original frame, it achieves a very high price indeed, much more than is being asked here. 'The Quaker' is an exceptional work, and a very exacting process has ensured all the subtlety of the original tempera is captured. THIS PRINT, IN THE SPECIAL FRAME, HAS ACHIEVED VERY LARGE SUMS AT AUCTION, THE HIGHEST FOUR TIMES THE PRICE OF THIS ONE. On the back of the picture is the ORIGINAL PRINTED DESCRIPTION about how this beautiful subtle print was achieved. Please ask about the cost of carriage of this considerable package. Costs will depend on destination of course.

        Report to the Secretary of the Army By the Special Commission on the United States Military Academy, regarding the Honor Code (with) Extensive Annotations By Col. "Red" Reeder, Letters and Notes

      West Point New York:: USMA,. 1976.. Staple-Bound. Very Good. A scathing and pithy commentary (also known as The Borman Report) on the state of affairs at West Point by Colonel Russell Potter "Red" Reeder, Jr. (1902 - 1998) United States Army officer, a highly decorated veteran of WWII and author - here reviews and comments on the Commission's investigation of the West Point system of Honor and its Code - nearly every page with his insertions, commentary and suggestions - at this time, the Point under scrutiny for reported abuses and scandals involving the cadets; Col. Reeder, for 20 years the respected Athletic Director of the USMA was concerned with and influential regarding changes needed in the Honor Code; this after several cheating incidents and 'scandals' concerning the cadets and incompetence on the part of the staff at the Point were publicly revealed; 91 pages, with handwritten marginal notations, underlining for emphasis in red and blue and references to other internal notes and incidents by him; Col. Reeder cites specific instances where the code and its application had been either abused or misinterpreted by less-than-caring Point administration, often resulting in unfair, foolishly judged and downright poor treatment of cadets; Throughout, Col. Reeder's approach is one of humanity and good sense and is especially potent, given that his entire life was spent within the U.S. Army under one aspect or another and his years of experience with the men and boys under his command gave him insight that would be difficult to surpass; At front is stapled-in a note on Reeder's letterhead, stating "...There will be moans abt. this report. Some at USMA think nothing is wrong. But in 30 years there have been two cadet honor dismissals, involving abt. 100 cadets each, plus one "Scandal" that was swept under the rug.. USMA should expect some outside changes because they were not cleaning up internally..."; laid-in are a carbon of a typed letter signed from Reeder to Col. Frank Borman, on the Special Commission, wherein Reeder tells of meeting with General of the Army Eisenhower who specifically had asked Col. Reeder about the cadet's adherence and loyalty to the Code and his concerns, Reeder noting that now more than ever is there need for paying attention to the good structure of the Academy since enrollment was nearly 4 times the size as when Eisenhower was a cadet; with a note to Col. William J. Taylor Jr. regarding the report and Taylor's grateful reply after reading it and Reeder's comments and recommendations; evidently, Reeder had sent the annotated report to several respected colleagues as well as the commission, since there are notes that Lt.Col. Dale Hruby as well as Brig. Gen. Harvey Fraser had been in communication, list in reviewing this document (their names both on the front cover as being forwarded the report); side-stapled; some edge tips wear, soiling to cover sheet and back cover, which is coming loose from the stapling; laid-in materials with light wear and contained in the original manila envelope titled in Reeder's hand (worn with tears); overall, in very good condition; a very interesting annotated report and group of correspondence, a unique archive of material concerning the USMA at West Point during a particularly troublesome time of upheaval and self- examination, especially as coming from the knowledgeable pen of the prominent Col. Reeder.

        Amazing Gerald Ford assassination attempt archive including 7 original signed pieces documenting the historic event from an eyewitness account

      , November 17, 1976 Amateur photographer and history buff Terence J. Cox saw history in the making on September 22, 1975 in San Francisco and did what any aspiring photographer would do - point and shoot. The result of that historical day is contained in this archive. According to newspaper clippings, Cox was standing only a mere 10 feet away from the would-be assassin, Sara Jane Moore on Post Street across from the St. Francis Hotel. This attempt came 17 days after Charles Manson follower, Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme made an attempt on the President's life. Moore at one time immersed herself in counter-culture to become a political revolutionary. She was recruited by the FBI informant to help with the Patty Hearst kidnapping. After her radical friends found out she was an FBI spy, they turned their backs on her. Moore's attempt at assassinating the President was a way back into their good graces. After being arrested that day, Moore plead guilty to the assassination attempt and received a life sentence. She was up for parole in
