Item Description: National Counter-Olympic Committee, V.p. [mostly Los Angeles], 1932. Five related pieces of ephemera concerning the historically little-known effort by the Communist Party to promote a boycott of the 1932 Los Angeles Summer Olympics. Much of the effort centered around the continued incarceration of labor leader Tom Mooney, who at this point had been in prison for 15 years following his frame-up for the Los Angeles Preparedness Day bombings of 1916 (he was finally pardoned in 1939). Mooney was named "Honorary Chairman" of the organization, and the committee's propaganda, in addition to characterizing the Olympic games as racist, militaristic, and intended "to distract the attention of the masses.from their own immediate problems.from the actual starvation facing many of them," makes repeated calls for Mooney's immediate and unconditional release. Uncommon survivals from a fascinating phase of California communism. None of the 5 items is separately catalogued in OCLC, though the LA84 Foundation Library appears to have a few related (but not separately catalogued) items. Five pieces, including two press releases, two circulars and one fundraising pledge form. Old folds; general light wear, with some creasing at margins; pledge form is a file copy, with red pencil annotation to that effect; Very Good overall. Bookseller Inventory # 20092

Item Description: Pan-Graphic Press, San Francisco, 1957. First Edition. Memoir of gay bar owner Helen Branson, whose bar "Helen's" was a San Francisco institution and a crucible for the nascent Gay Rights movement. A valuable picture of gay life at a time when homosexuality was still a forbidden topic for discussion or publication in the United States. This was the first production of the Pan-Graphic Press, which also published the seminal gay journal Mattachine Review. In James T. Sears' history of the Mattachine Press, he mentions the first printing for Gay Bar consisting of 1600 copies, with 500 sold prior to publication; we suspect these were likely the "Author's Edition," which would likely have been sold to friends and patron's of Branson's bar. A genuinely scarce title; we find no copies in the trade (2014), and OCLC notes fewer than 2 dozen institutional holdings. YOUNG 295. Author's Limited Premiere Edition, this being copy no.410. Slim octavo (21.5cm); blue cloth, with titles stamped in lime green on spine and front panel; dustjacket; 89pp. Inscribed by Branson on the limitation page: "Regards, Helen P. Branson / Hollywood 1957." Contemporary owner's name and date to front endpaper, with faint trace of foxing to text edges; very Near Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $3.00), with light, scattered foxing and a few small stains to panels; Very Good+. Bookseller Inventory # 19738

Item Description: [Kalamazoo, MI: ca 1903-1915]. Excellent small archive of work by the cartoonist, publisher, Socialist Party organizer and pamphleteer Guy H. Lockwood (1870-1947). A search of OCLC discovers no fewer than 30 publications written and published by Lockwood from his Kalamazoo studio between 1900 and 1928, including two Socialist periodicals ("The Billy Goat" and "Unity"), several how-to publications for artists, and dozens of pamphlets on subjects ranging from health fads to occultism to progressive politics. In addition to his many publishing activities, Lockwood operated a correspondence art school from about 1910-1934; included here are three examples of work by students and associates (or possibly five; the two unsigned works are difficult to attribute positively to Lockwood). The drawings are for the most part political in nature, and most appear to have been prepared for publication. They include: ::Lockwood's mock-up for a subscription card for The Appeal To Reason, undated (ca 1900-1905);::Newspaper illustration, signed "GH Lockwood," headlined "The Short Hand Room" (dated 1904); ::Lockwood's masthead for an unidentified publication, headlined "Railroad Edition" (ca 1900-1905); ::Lockwood's mock-up for an advertisement for American Socialist College (dated 1903);::Uncaptioned illustration, signed "GH Lockwood", of a woman house-cleaner (dated 1904); ::Unsigned masthead, possibly by Lockwood, titled "Can You Put A Tail On A Billy Goat?", for the magazine "Unity" (ca 1910s); ::Unsigned drawing of a teamster stuck in the mud, undated, apparently cut from a larger sheet; ::Masthead for "The Billy Goat", signed "GES", (ca 1910)::Humorous portrait of Lockwood, titled "A Little Journey to the School of Lockwood the Heavy Hoofed, or a Maker of Artists", signature illegible, dated 1915; ::another portrait of Lockwood, titled "Lockwood On A Toot", signed "Gris," undated. ::Report, dated April 1, 1934 from Lockwood as State Organizer of the Michigan Socialist Party (5 mimeographed sheets, in envelope with return address of the Lockwood Art School). Together, a valuable record of this talented but little-known artist's work, as well as of Progressive-era radical publishing history. 10 original pen-and-ink illustrations, in black ink on artist's board. Five signed by Lockwood; two pieces unsigned but apparently in Lockwood's hand; three works signed by other artists. Dimensions vary; most pieces ca. 13" x 7" to 12" x 10"; some slightly smaller. A few with marginal chips or soiling; several with pencil markings for placement for publication; most appear to have been lifted from mounts or albums, with resulting scuffing/staining to paper on verso. Overall Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 20093

Item Description: Neue Deutscher Verlag, [Prague], 1935. First Edition. A typically worn example of this extremely fragile and scarce German socialist journal, issued from Berlin from 1922 to 1933, then published in exile in Prague from 1934-1938. Circulation dropped precipitously during the Prague years, as did production quality, making these later issues very scarce in trade, in any condition. Between 1930-38, Heartfield contributed regularly to AIZ, producing much of the photomontage work for which he is best known. Folio on newsprint; 15" x 11"; pp 802-815. Small chips to extremities, brief losses and marginal tears; publisher information excised on front cover; near Very Good, with the Heartfield montage on rear cover relatively well-preserved.

Item Description: S.i., 1892. Attractive view of the grand hotel at Zoar, during the community's heyday as a resort community for wealthy Clevelanders, and just prior to the community's dissolution. The Society of Separatists of Zoar, a utopian socialist community, was established in 1814 by a community of German pietists under the leadership of Joseph Bimeller. In 1879, Alexander Gunn, a wealthy Cleveland industrialist who had become fascinated with the village and its folkways, was invited to take up residence there -- the first outsider to be so honored. In the years to come he would convert his simple residence to a pleasure palace for the entertainment of socialite (not socialist) friends; the Zoarites eventually disbanded in 1892, thanks in large measure to the "infection" of the community by outside influences (namely the aforementioned Mr. Gunn). Original (vintage) albument print, 12cm x 16.5cm (4-3/4" x 6-1/2"), on slightly larger card mount, hand-captioned ink at right of image: "Zoar Hotel - 1892" (and the date written again, in a later hand, to left of caption). Image slightly faded, with small spots in foreground, but still clear and sharp; mount creased at corners, slightly toned, but generally a Very Good, well-preserved image.

Item Description: Francis B. Livesey [ca 1905], Sykesville, MD, 1905. Eccentric broadside from the apparently indefatigable pamphleteer and libertarian rabble-rouser of Sykesville, Maryland, who reputedly authored, over the course of his long career, more than 20,000 letters to the editor on subjects as diverse as Women's Clubs, the Negro problem, Socialism, unemployment, political corruption, and public education. Whether all 20,000 letters were issued, as this one was, in broadside format is impossible to say; the current example is numbered 14,630, but OCLC finds only 6 examples of any Livesey broadside (and only a single holding for this one); none in Maryland institutions.

Item Description: Committee of Twelve for the Advancement of the Interests of the Negro Race [1907], Cheyney, PA, 1907. First Edition. A sweeping discourse on the state of the Negro in turn-of-the-century America, with an emphasis on economic conditions in the South and the importance of negro workers to ensuring its continued industrial development. Though he presents a largely sympathetic portrait of Black America, Carnegie is not, unsurprisingly, capable of treating his subject without patronizing condescension: ".Touching the good qualities of the negro, he has much to his credit. During the civil war his devotion to good masters and mistresses was touching.it was the exception when slaves upon an estate were cruelly treated, and the relations between white and black were surprizingly [sic] free from bitterness." Published by the Committee of Twelve for the Advancement of the Interests of the Negro Race, one of the earliest privately-sponsored "think tanks" in the U.S. Not surprisingly, the Committe of Twelve was the brainchild of Carnegie himself, its members (all prominent African-Americans) selected and appointed by him and its agenda presumably set according to Carnegie's priorities. Membership varied over the years, but among the Committee's members during this period were Booker T. Washington, Kelly Miller, Archibald Grimke, and Charles Chesnutt. Octavo. Staple-bound pamphlet; 32pp. Old stains to first few pages; covers faintly creased and soiled; Good. Bookseller Inventory # 19855

Item Description: S.I., Philadelphia, 1970. Photo-illustrated tabloid, reproducing Huey Newton's address to the Revolutionary People's Constitutional Convention, which took place at the Temple University Gymnasium in Philadelphia, PA on September 5, 1970. The RPCC plenary session was attended by 7,000 people, with the lofty goal of organizing a broad-based revolutionary movement that would unite the struggles of black liberation, independence for Puerto Rico, students, women's, gays, workers and other fights behind a common program. "Many believed that an organized movement would follow the adoption of a common platform at the full constitutional convention," scheduled for 27-29 November, 1970 in Washington, DC. The movement was halted when DC area authorities "refused to permit the Panther-sponsored group to meet or imposed financial barriers that were impossible to reach. Thousands arrived in the District to find no adequate meeting space and the unity sought proved elusive. Soon afterward, the Panthers were wracked by an internal split and declined in influence" (Washington Area Spark). Rare; we find no copies in the trade (2014), and OCLC notes 3 copies at Northwestern, Michigan State, and the Wisconsin Historical Society. Folio; single sheet of newsprint, measuring 57.5cm x 42cm, printed in black and folded vertically at center to create a 4pp tabloid. Light toning to extremities, with a shallow chip to top edge and several tiny tears; Very Good+. Bookseller Inventory # 19746

Item Description: New Masses, Inc, New York, 1926. Inaugural issue of the long-running literary organ of the CPUSA. For the first year, publication continued in this large quarto format, with impressively illustrated covers reminiscent of the original Masses and Liberator and with content echoing those predecessor publications' irreverent and independent spirit.

Item Description: Tempo Record Co [ca 1952], Hollywood, CA, 1952. Tempo Records originally issued this iconic recording of "Sweet Georgia Brown" in 1947, performed by the great (if now little-remembered, aside from this one signature tune) Brother Bones, a whistling, bones-playing novelty recording artist from Montgomery, Alabama. The original pressing was backed with "Margie," a somewhat forgettable whistling number. But when the Harlem Globetrotters adopted "Sweet Georgia Brown" as their official theme song in 1952, Tempo reissued the record, switching out "Margie" for an interview with Globetrotters manager Abe Saperstein and adding an oversized photo-pictorial label to the B-side. The original pressing is common, but this reissue is something of a rarity, and particularly hard to find with the label intact and in fresh condition. This a rather nice example. 10", 78-rpm vinyl disc in unprinted kraft paper sleeve. Surface scratches and a bit of dullness to vinyl, but free of cracks and with both labels fresh and intact; Very Good and fully playable. Bookseller Inventory # 19989

Item Description: [New York: Bread and Puppet Theatre]. Bread and Puppet Theatre was founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City's Lower East Side. At first, Schumann and his colleagues built large-scale rod and hand puppets and put on shows for children, with themes running from rent and rats to police and other problems in the neighborhood. As the theater troupe grew, so did the complexity of their productions and puppets. Annual presentations for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and Memorial Day frequently included children and adults from within the community, with many of the performances being done in the street. During the Vietnam War, B&P staged block-long processions involving hundreds of participants. From the beginning, Bread and Puppet augmented its theatrical productions with a lively output of self-published (mostly mimeographed) pamphlets, broadsides, and chap-books. Like the puppet-plays (and often designed to accompany them), these publications bridged the gap between artistic expression and moral pedagogy, combining an avant-garde, insistently primitive graphic style with simple left-wing political messages. The results were some of the most compelling (if crudely-produced) artist's books of the period. The "Newspaper", issued from 1966 through the early 1970s, drew on contemporary news headlines, using a story pulled from the daily newspapers as inspiration for a brief, illustrated morality tale -- the current examples draw on the discovery of H-Bomb fragments in the wreck of a B-52 bomber; the death and burial of American soldier Edwin Grey; the passage of a Senate bill making it a federal crime to kidnap or assault a member of Congress, etc. Original issues of Bread and Puppet Newspaper are uncommon; runs of any size are rare. Of the eight OCLC member institutions listing any holdings of this publication, only MOMA (Queens Artists' Books Collection) appears to hold a complete run. Two other institutions (UVA, NYU) own substantial, but incomplete runs of five or more issues; the remaining five institutions own only one or two issues each. The most comprehensive collection of Bread & Puppet materials is the Bread and Puppet Archives at University of Vermont; the current publications are not separately catalogued there, nor are they listed in the on-line finding aid to that collection. We have not previously encountered any Bread and Puppet material of this vintage in commerce. Six original, mimeographed issues. Irregularly numbered; includes the following: No. 2 (dated Jan, 1968); No. 3 (dated Jan, 1968); No. 4 (undated); No. 5 (dated Jan, 1967); issue for April, 1972 (unnumbered); issue for Autumn, 1970 (unnumbered, and with alternate title "Bread and News"). Together, six volumes in staple-bound self-wrappers, each issue ca. 20-30pp. Varying wear, with cover soil, brief marginal tears, and creasing, generally Good to Very Good.

Item Description: Random House, New York, 1952. First Edition. Ellison's first novel, which he began writing while serving in the Merchant Marines during World War II. "The story begins with a terrifying odyssey of one man's search for his own identity through his high school days to the campus of a Southern Negro college and then to New York's Harlem. Here the main character becomes involved in a series of complex adventures, deceltions and betrayals, as much by himself and his own illusions. His heroes have an identity and yet he ends up as a nonentity." Winner of the National Book Award in 1953, and cited in The Modern Library's 100 Best Novels list (#19), Invisible Man remains one of the 20th century's most enduring works on the Black experience in America.

Item Description: S.I. [n.d. but ca.1919], [Washington, DC], 1919. First Edition. Pamphlet in which Miller discusses whether race prejudice is "a natural antipathy, parallel with other instincts.or is it merely a stimulated animosity, the outgrowth of circumstances and conditions." Not dated, but references a thousand Negro soldiers marrying French wives during the World War. Though less widely-known today than his more famous contemporaries Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois, Miller was arguably the most influential Black intellectual of his era, a prolific, articulate, and widely-published advocate for Negro education and civil rights, once called by Carter Woodson "undoubtedly the greatest pamphleteer of the Negro race." OCLC locates a single copy at Emory University. Octavo (23.5cm); beige wrappers printed in black, stapled; 8pp, [1]. Oxidation to staples, with a few faint stains to rear wrapper; Near Fine.

Item Description: Storm-Mollet Publishing Associates, Quincy, Ill, 1954. First Edition. The author, a Nevada writer and prospector, was a pioneer in the investigation of the legend of The Lost Dutchman Mine; his book on the subject, Thunder God's Gold, was adapted for the 1949 Hollywood film "Lust For Gold," starring Glenn Ford and Ida Lupino. However, Storm was deeply unhappy with the film and especially with its depiction of him as the fictional grandson of the original "Lost Dutchman". In this work, Storm mounts an extended, rambling, at times incoherent bastinade against the film's producers, whom he accuses of being part of Hollywood's "red network", and against the Hollywood film industry which, in his words, "stands shackled to the funeral pyre of treason by commie propagandists who sway public opinion to the uses of a foreign conspiracy." A rare entry in the Hollywood Red Scare pantheon; OCLC finds only seven locations; none others in trade (2014); never before seen by us. Octavo (8-1/2"). Stapled pictorial card wrappers; 18pp text, 30pp facsimiles. Slight external wear and soil; Near Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 19380
