         THE FIRST FUNCTIONING BRAIN | ORGASM THEORY | VELOCITY | SCIENCE [Five texts]; Intelligence Creation | A Major Breakthrough in Science

      Published by the author 1960 - Five texts, approximately 56 pp. total, printed from spirit duplication (ditto machine). Illustrated with symbolic equations, graphs amd charts. Papin studied English, then physics at the University of Washington, finding the physics department too limiting. The work presented here is an eccentric mix of science, poetry, and biology -- the influences of Enistein and Wilhelm Reich are apparent. Papin offers mathematical proofs as well as poems and literary references to supplement his theories, and these can develop (or degenerate, take your pick) into a kind of symbolic drawing. One of the stranger collections to pass across this cataloguer's desk, and a pretty fascinating example of alternative / otherstream thought and imagination. Contains: THE FIRST FUNCTIONING BRAIN. Two editions. 13 pp (plus cover), 10 + ix pp. The latter has a notepaper-clipped to it, '1. Mathematical Biophysics Bioenergetics. 2. The Calculus of Related Algebraic Variables. Two copies are presented to show variations / developments in the author's thought. "In the evening of July 17, 1961, at Washington Bay, Alaska, I wrote down Einstein's basic formula of mass energy equivalence E=MC2 and trying to find a relation between this formula and emotion I pondered the question, "to the square of the speed of light." [ .] Time seems to be a continuous series of squares of the speed of light, one times the other." Contain a list and synopsis of Papin's Theories (Orgasm, Creation, Time, Fourth Dimension, Unity, Mystery, Space, Emotion, etc.). Hand-written dedication to Norman H. Roberts, a University of Washington physicist. Papers are in an envelope bearing Dr. Roberts' address at UW's Applied Physics Lab.ORGASM THEORY (1964) 10pp. "The square of Light is the physical orgasm."VELOCITY 10 pp. Begins with Dylan Thomas' poem, "The Force That through the Green Fuse Drives the Flower," followed by Papin's rewrite / response to it. With other poems: "Albert Einstein," "Theatre of Mind" and lists; "Hieroglyphic Symbols"SCIENCE 4pp. A sort of manifesto, with 33 theses and essay. No dates on any of the papers; note clipped to Orgasm Theory dated 1964. Papin had two books published by the Vantage Press, New York: The Mathematics of Sex, and Sex, Symbolism, and the Bible. Text printed from ditto machine, stapled in corner. Minor wear. Housed in manila envelope. Very good.

         Mezhdunarodnyi iazyk Esperanto (grammatika, slovar' i kratkaia khrestomatiia) [The international language Esperanto (with grammar rules, a dictionary, and a short reader]

      self-published, Odessa 1960 - Small octavo (15 × 10.5 cm). Original string-bound printed wrappers; 48, [2] pp. Photo-reproduced manuscript and printed text. Owner signature to front wrapper; else very good. An unrecorded Soviet samizdat publication from Odessa, Ukraine, by one of two surviving members of the Sovetrespublikara Esperantista Unio, or Union of Soviet Esperantists, which existed from 1921 to 1937. In the 1920-1930s, Esperanto had been a popular pastime encouraged by writers and scientists such as Maxim Gorky, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, and Anatoly Lunacharsky. But in the course of the Stalinist Repressions, the Esperanto activists were accused of espionage, their belongings confiscated, and the members of the Central Committee executed. Vershinin survived, ostensibly by sheer luck: he happened to be away from Moscow when the arrests were made. After the 20th Congress of the Communist Party, in February 1956, which resulted in Khrushchev's disavoval of the Stalinist period, the first tentative attempts were made to reestablish Esperanto culture in the Soviet Union. Vershinin, now settled in Odessa, published his introduction as a manuscript" ("na pravakh rukopisi"), evidently for use among a growing circle of local Esperantists. He presents the history and goals of the language, outlines basic grammar rules, and concludes with a bibliography of primers and textbooks. A small dictionary is also included, photo-copied from an earlier publication. The reader contains short anecdotes and proverbs; a text on Zamenhof; excerpts of works by Stalin, Lenin, and the Esperantist Ivo Lapenna; a history of Esperanto in Odessa, the "cradle of Esperanto"; an excerpt in Esperanto of Pushkin's Eugene Onegin translated by N. Nekrasov; a text by Nikita Khrushchev ("Defendu Pacoj!"), and, importantly, the addresses of Soviet Esperanto libraries and circles, in places such as Tbilisi and Kazan'. Not in KVK, OCLC. Not at the Russian State or National Library. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Promotional Booklet for Jamie and Mardi-Gras Records. Circa 1960

      [No place] - Bradbound printed wrappers. 12.5" x 12.5". Light wear on the wrappers, very good or better; internally fine. Contains 27 inserts that consist of high gloss album cover art and the sleeve art for a few 7" records for music produced by Jamie Records and their "bargain" label Mardi-Gras Records (the cover lists several other small independent companies including Gone Records, Gone Latin, Goldisc, and End Records, most of which were owned or founded by George Goldner between 1957-1962). The first four inserts in the book are for the Duane Eddy album "Have Twangy Guitar Will Travel" and the sleeve art for three 7" records by Eddy, "Detour" (both mono and stereo) and "Yep!" Aside for one more Eddy album, and a few "easy listening" albums, almost all - certainly way more than half - consists of the art for Latin music, almost always identified in the title as "cha cha cha" music, including Joe Cuba and Orchestra, Sonny Rossi and the Concord Hotel Orchestra, La Playa Sextet, Al Castellanos, Johnny Conquet and Orchestra, and Emilio Reyes. Certainly rare, and probably unique documentation and an interesting evocation of Latin music in the early 1960s.

         For Your Eyes Only.

      Jonathan Cape, London 1960 - First edition of the eighth novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light wear to the spine. Jacket design by Richard Chopping. The collection contains five short stories: "From a View to a Kill", "For Your Eyes Only", "Quantum of Solace", "Risico" and "The Hildebrand Rarity". It has "the only British dust jacket with any depiction of Bond: the eye in the peephole is his. Fleming made artist Richard Chopping paint it many times, until he was satisfied with the shape and, particularly, the color" (Biondi & Pickard, 46). It was made into the 1981 film starring Roger Moore and Carole Bouquet; the 1985 film A View to a Kill starring Moore, Christopher Walken, and Grace Jones and the 2008 film A Quantum of Solace starring Daniel Craig.
