         Neil Armstrong Signed Apollo 11 Liftoff.

      Image of the Saturn V rocket during the Apollo 11 during liftoff. Boldly signed on the image, "Neil Armstrong Apollo 11." In fine condition. The image measures 6 inches by 4 inches. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 12 inches by 13 inches. Rare and desirable signed by Neil Armstrong. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two humans on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent just under a day on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit. Apollo 11 was launched by a Saturn V rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Merritt Island, Florida, on July 16 at 9:32 am EDT (13:32 UTC) and was the fifth manned mission of NASA's Apollo program. The Apollo spacecraft had three parts: a command module (CM) with a cabin for the three astronauts, and the only part that landed back on Earth; a service module (SM), which supported the command module with propulsion, electrical power, oxygen, and water; and a lunar module (LM) that had two stages - a lower stage for landing on the Moon, and an upper stage to place the astronauts back into lunar orbit. After being sent toward the Moon by the Saturn V's upper stage, the astronauts separated the spacecraft from it and traveled for three days until they entered into lunar orbit. Armstrong and Aldrin then moved into the lunar module Eagle and landed in the Sea of Tranquility. They stayed a total of about 21.5 hours on the lunar surface. The astronauts used Eagle's upper stage to lift off from the lunar surface and rejoin Collins in the command module. They jettisoned Eagle before they performed the maneuvers that blasted them out of lunar orbit on a trajectory back to Earth. They returned to Earth and landed in the Pacific Ocean on July 24. The landing was broadcast on live TV to a worldwide audience. Armstrong stepped onto the lunar surface and described the event as "one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind." Apollo 11 effectively ended the Space Race and fulfilled a national goal proposed in 1961 by U.S. President John F. Kennedy: "before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth."

      Harry N. Abrams [1969], New York - 230 p. 28 x 30 cm. 153 illustrations, 47 in colour. Pictorial hardcover. Some discolouration to spine. Light edge wear. Small stain bottom edge and little spot on fold-out plate list at rear. A little soiling to top edge of p. 3. American artist Robert Rauschenberg's early works anticipated the pop art movement. He is best remembered for his "Combines" of the 1950s, in which non-traditional materials and objects were employed in innovative blends. One of his first and most famous combines was "Monogram" (p. 188), in which the unlikely mix of a stuffed angora goat, a tire, a police barrier, the heel of a shoe, and a tennis ball alter the course of modern art. The work in this book will stop viewers in their tracks, just as they did in mid-twentieth century. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Verona: Editrice SAF, 1969. Light handling creases to a couple of the interior pages along with some associated small nicks visible on adjoining pages, otherwise near fine in a near fine price-clipped jacket. Scarce, OCLC locates a single copy at the National Library of Australia.. First Edition. Large quarto. SIGNED and inscribed in Italian by Butturini. An incredible photobook capturing the seedier side of 1969 swinging London. Butturini's stark black and white images connect London's gritty street life with the emerging counterculture youth tribes in a photographic vision that is both Dickensian and modernist. The self-published book opens with a quote from Robert Capa and poetry by Allen Ginsberg; Italian texts by Butturini and Luciano Modini follow. Martin Parr credits the book as containing some of his favorite images of the capital, while Gerry Badger notes that the photography is "more Don McCullin than David Bailey" (Parr / Badger, v. 3, 154-155).

         Psychedelic" Map of Woodstock].

      New York, 1969 - The summer of love Newspaper (410 by 300mm), 20pp., map of Woodstock to front cover. The East Village Other (often abbreviated as EVO), was an American underground newspaper in New York City, New York, issued biweekly during the 1960s. It was described by The New York Times as "a New York newspaper so countercultural that it made The Village Voice look like a church circular". Published by Walter Bowart, EVO was among the first countercultural newspapers to emerge, following the Los Angeles Free Press, which had begun publishing a few months earlier. It was an important publication for the underground comix movement, featuring comic strips by artists including Robert Crumb, Kim Deitch, Trina Robbins, Spain Rodriguez, Gilbert Shelton and Art Spiegelman before underground comic books emerged from San Francisco with the first issue of Zap Comix. The present edition published August 13 1969, devotes the front cover and much of the contents to the famous Woodstock Festival of '69. This is how the BBC reported it at the time: Thousands of young people are heading home after three days and nights of sex, drugs and rock and roll at the Woodstock music festival. An estimated 400,000 youngsters turned up to hear big-name bands play in a field near the village of Bethel, New York state in what has become the largest rock concert of the decade. About 186,000 tickets were sold so promoters anticipated that around 200,000 would turn up. But on Friday night, the flimsy fences and ticket barriers had come down and organisers announced the concert was free prompting thousands more to head for the concert. Traffic jams eight miles long blocked off the area near White Lake, near Bethel, some 50 miles from the town of Woodstock. Local police estimated a million people were on the road yesterday trying to get to Woodstock. They were overwhelmed by the numbers but were impressed by a good level of behaviour. The festival's chief medical officer, Dr William Abruzzi told Rolling Stone magazine: "These people are really beautiful. There has been no violence whatsoever which is really remarkable for a crowd of this size." Those who made it to the makeshift venue were treated to performances by Janis Joplin, The Who, Grateful Dead, Canned Heat, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez and Ravi Shankar. Rainstorms failed to dampen the spirits of the revellers, many high on marijuana, some dancing naked in the now muddy fields. The main organiser, 49-year-old dairy farmer Max Yasgur, who provided $50,000 and 600 acres of his land, addressed the crowds on the last day of the event. "You have proven something to the world. that half a million kids can get together for fun and music and have nothing but fun and music." There were however two deaths - a teenager was killed by a tractor as he lay in his sleeping bag and another died from a drugs overdose." The map to the front cover captures some of the drug-fuelled psychedelia of the festival in its wonderful surrealist work. The Woodstock poster logo of catbird and guitar, originally created by New York artist Arnold Skolnick for the 1969 Festival is radically transformed here, as these two motifs merge into a trio of strange guitar-headed birds, each presumably representing one of the three days of the festival. A further three guitars open up to reveal strange hidden contents, perhaps a symbolic metaphor for the amazing range of music that was expected to follow in the coming weekend. Further to this roads are seen transformed into electric leads, and guitar straps. In the foreground two naked women emerge from tubes label "Glee".

         Business Adventures / Twelve classic tales from the worlds of Wall Street and the modern American corporation

      Weybright and Talley, New York 1969 - Although this copy is entirely bound in black cloth with apple green endpapers (just like the similarly sized trade editions) and states "Third printing, February, 1969" to copyright page, the absence of any price from the (unclipped) jacket front flap, and the presence of a small, square deboss to bottom of rear board at spine, tell us this is in fact a book-club edition. Author Brooks, who wrote regularly for the New Yorker (where all of these pieces first appeared, albeit "in different form"), here gives us 50 pp. on the fate of the Ford Edsel (presumably condensed from his earlier, 1963 book of that title), with additional chapters on the rise of Xerox; on David Lilienthal; on the price-rigging of industrial transformers and generators by Westinghouse, GE, and others (as revealed to the public by Sen. Estes Kefauver); on the weird social and economic distortions caused by the intricacies of the federal income tax, etc. Business. 399 pp. including index. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
