The figurehead of the organization was Chemical Girl, represented by a drawing of a smiling brunette holding up a glass beaker. This run includes assorted ephemera, including a flyer for a 1984 Chemical Girl Party, a couple of small one sheets (Key to the perfect body; The Nitrogen Ciycle; Personal Cleaning tips), and a postcard (Have you seen me?), mailed in 1988, inquiring as to the whereabouts of Chemical Girl, who had gone missing. The final item is a special hand-colored news bulletin from The Rubber City Chemcorp, the association which the Kent Chemical Group had morphed into, announcing the death of Chemical Girl and her subsequent resurrection.

EUR 1,500.00

Founded as an anti-establishment alternative newspaper in May 1967 by Pierre Coupey, Milton Acorn, Dan McLeod, Stan Persky, and others, and originally it operated as a collective. Issues are mostly 24 pages, with colourful (psychedelic) artwork on frontpages and in the middlespread and numerous illustrations and photographs. The paper was raided and fined by the Vancouver Police for publishing obscenities, and was often banned from distribution for its criticism of the local police and politicians, especially Mayor Tom Campbell. Those controversies ended in the 1970s, as the paper moved to become a more conventional news and entertainment weekly, albeit with a progressive editorial slant. The collection not collated in full detail, but the issues make the impression of being intact and complete.

Editor: Ed Dwyer. From the announcement-letter (May 16, 1974): "The Trans-High Corporation of New York announced today the publication of a new magazine.... It offers extensive and sophisticated coverage of the pleasure and psychochemical culture.... articles ranging from the ecology of cannabis paper to an investigative report on a nine-ton pot bust. ...A regular feature of High Times is a comprehensive Wall Street Journal-type listing of psychochemical prices around the world (=in fact 'High Witness News'). ..Also featured are medical and legal columns written by leading experts as well as eclectic reviews of films, records and books. ... psychochemicals have become the cause of psychological and sociological problems; to alleviate these problems, the first step is to take a more thorough look. This is the purpose of High Times." Contribs. by Richard Ashley, Bruce Eisner, Albert Goldman, Michael Horowitz, Ron Rosenbaum, John Wilcock, Deanne Stillman, a.o. Also interviews with (o.a.) the Dalai Lama, Albert Hofmann, Dr. Norman Zinberg, Andy Warhol, Peter Beard, Fran Lebowitz, Keith Richard, Marianne Faithfull, etc. In addition to the controversial drug coverage and in-depth countercultural articles, there is a sizeable amount of early punk rock coverage thanks to Tom Forcade's early interest in the Sex Pistols and punk music as the "next big thing". Forcade even provided funding for John Holmstrom's Punk magazine at one point. While High Times continues to this day, the focus here was on music related coverage and therefore this particular run ends in 1981 where the musical interest also begins to taper off.

Famous document from the 1960s.'The Scroll of Bart Huges'. (The man who peirced his head with a dentist's drill, Huges advocates the creation of an altered state of mind concurrent with the use of LSD and marihuana.) His experiences after this psychedelic hallucinating experiment are recorded in this scroll, which is illustrated by 'scientific' images, which are handcoloured. The 'third eye' was revealed during a Happening "Stoned in the Streets' in Amsterdam, 1965. Hugo Bart Huges (also Hughes) (April 23, 1934 . September 12, 2004) was a Dutch librarian and proponent of trepanation. He attended medical school at the University of Amsterdam, but was refused a degree due to his advocacy of marijuana use. In 1964 he published "The Mechanism of Brainbloodvolume ('BBV')" (also known as "Homo Sapiens Correctus") a scroll in which he proposed that trepanation could be used to enhance brain functionality by balancing the proportion of blood and cerebral spinal fluid. Hughes believed that, when mankind began to walk upright, our brains drained of blood and that trepanation allowed the blood to better flow in and out of the brain, causing a permanent "high.". Using an electric drill, Huges drilled a hole in his skull on 6 January 1965.[ His experiences after this psychedelic hallucinating experiment are recorded in this scroll, which is illustrated by 'scientific' images, which are handcoloured. The 'third eye' was revealed during a Happening "Stoned in the Streets' in Amsterdam, 1965.

► detailed description

A self-published treatise on trepanation by a member of the Dutch Provo who had experienced the act firsthand. On January 6, 1965, Huges famously self-trepanated himself in a square in Amsterdam, drilling into his own head with a (Black & Decker ?) drill. Huges had studied as a medical student, where he developed the belief that since mankind began to walk upright our heads have been starved of oxygen; he believed that by trepanning, one could achieve a permanent high, bringing his actions into the psychedelic trajectory and influencing a select cadre of auto-trepanationists who have sought freedom from the boundaries of the skull. Very rare documents.

On january the 6th 1965 the Dutchman Bart Huges, also known as Hughes operated himself with an electric dril (Black & Decker), a surgical knife, and a hypodermic syringe for the local anesthetic. The operation tookalmost an hour. He was the first self trepanator of the world. The reason was his 'discovery': "The mechanism of brainbloodvolume". Through trepanation Huges claimed an increase in brain blood volume. His aim was to reach an higher consiousness, like in using drugs (LSD etc...). Through the trepanation there is an enhancing of the cerebral metabolism in a similar matter with ginkgo biloba. There are no really published results of these claims by Huges. In the 60's Huges ideas were very popular and has been influenced a British group of self trepanator's, followers of our Dutch friend. One is Joe Mellen the translator of this work and author of wellknown book "Bore Hole". The wife of Mellen, Amanda Feilding, was also wellknow in the trepanation inner circle. All three were strong advocates of self-trepanation. Huges wrote more books, but in this special work he tried to explain his theories with a kind of scientific base. Huges studied medicine at the Amsterdam Univerisity, but "leaved" the University. He had almost finished his studies and got no medical degree. (Though often Huges named himself Dr. Huges). He failed for the obstetrics examen. The mechanism isn't really a book on trepanation, but a text on his thoughts on the brainbloodvolume. Very scarce only two copies in Dutch public Libraries. (Leiden and Amsterdam) No copies in any libraries outside the Netherlands. First and only edition. The book has a typoscript colophon: "A publication of the foundation for independant thinking (F.I.T.) P.O. Box 10458 Amsterdam Price f. 10,- Postage included Payments through Amro Bank Haarlemmerplein Amsterdam" The price was really high at that date 10 Dutch guilders. Only a few copies stil exists of this finely illustrated work.

Virtually all content by Aldrich, an exception being a letter to him from Ginsberg, a page of Mantras "as taught by AG", and a reprinted essay by Ginsberg on mantras. Other work includes reviews of The Fugs and Dylan albums. Mike Aldrich was a doctoral student at UB and began a LEMAR (legalize marijuana) chapter on campus. (There is much online regarding "Dr. Dope" as he became known and the "Fiedler Scandal".) An early artifact in the legalization of marijuana, by one of the founders indeed scholars of the movement. It is likely that the last few pages are missing as references to a review of the Rolling Stones album and "the latest on the Fiedler Case" intimate that pages are not present.

NEW YORK PROVO

"On THE OPEN PRESS".

A group of 5 handouts, mimeographed from typescript and/or holograph, printed "on The Open Press" by New York Provo. Each 28x21,5cm, printed on recto only. (1) New York Provo. Psychedelic Explosion, Part 2. New York: The Open Press,[ c. 1967]. Mimeographed from typescript and holograph on yellow paper. Handout describing a smoke-in provocation at the Daily News Building in New York, in which "50 Anarcho-hippies Blow Grand Central's Mind." The flyer concludes with notice of two block parties, one of which, on East 7th street, advertises two bands, films, and a "total environment". The second advertises the band "Group Image." Very good with toning and brittleness. (2) New York Provo. Police Harassment. New York: The Open Press, nd [c. 1967]. crudely mimeographed from typescript on yellow paper. A leaflet issued by the group reporting on a Smoke-In the previous week in Tompkin's Square park, one of a series of such gatherings the group helped to put on which were inspired by the Dutch Provo movement. The leaflet describes police harassment of the event, tips to avoid being busted by cops, and also urges participants to not be destructive in the park. The leaflet concludes by soliciting a photographer to document the harassment. Fair only with toning, chipping and creasing to extremities, and smudging - a heavily worn but basically sound copy of a fragile and very ephemeral flyer.

New York: The Open Press, nd. mimeographed from typescript on yellow paper. Manifesto critiquing the failure of the Washington FDA to adequaltely provide food and drugs to the people, which announces the formation of a NY Provo FDA - one branch to distribute legal goods, and another, secret branch called NARCO (National Association for the Relief of Conscious Obstruction) which would concern itself with illegal goods, chemical and botanical research to create better drugs, and raids on government stockpiles. There are also references to a free food program in Tompkins Square Park to fill the void left by the Family Commune's free food events, and solicitations for volunteers to help in free food projects. Fair only with toning, chipping and creasing to extremities, a heavily worn but basically sound copy of a fragile and very ephemeral flyer. (4) Hate Parade. New York: The Open Press, [1967]. crudely mimeographed from typescript on yellow paper. A leaflet issued by the group reporting on a "Hate Parade" held that day, which marched from Columbus Circle to Tompkins Square Park, where the group held many events. The provocative event - certainly one of the stranger protests of the decade - is described in detail. The leaflet concludes with a paragraph on LSD, solicits donations for the Gallery Freestore, and proposes an upcoming Be-in at the Bronx Botanical Garden on Sunday, September 17, dating the leaflet to 1967. A fair only copy, with heavy toning to the brittled paper and some soiling. (5) What To Do When the Man Comes. New York: The Open Press, nd. [c.1967].Opens with a quote from Harry Hemphill. Mimeographed from typescript and holograph on yellow paper on recto only. Handout describing ways to deal with arrest police, especially at gatherings, and how to spot undercover cops at gatherings. It also includes a Harry Hemphill Quote. A brittle, good only copy with chipping, creasing, and closed tears.

A substantial, nearly-complete, run of "Open City," (at first published as "Open City Press" in San Francisco). Underground weekly noted for its coverage of radical politics, rock music, psychedelic culture and the "Notes of a Dirty Old Man" column by Charles Bukowski, first published here. Editor and founder: John Bryan (whose signature is on 17 copies) with art director Joan Barr, and contributing editors Alex Apostolides, Bob Garcia, Robert Igriega, Bill Margolis, John Wilcock etc. Member of the Underground Press Syndicate. Many issues have spectacular lay-out, artwork and photocompositions. "John Charles Bryan (November 12, 1934 - February 1, 2007), was a journalist who quit the San Francisco Chronicle in 1964 to found the brief-lived San Francisco bohemian tabloid weekly Open City Press, publishing 15 issues from Nov. 18, 1964 to March 17-23, 1965. Open City Press was a local forerunner of the Berkeley Barb, providing coverage of the Free Speech Movement. It was a one-man operation. In the beginning Bryan bought a case of metal monotype and hand-set his own copy, pulling proofs to paste up for cheap offset reproduction." (cf: Wikipedia). Bukowski's contributions started in Vol. 1 no 6 with the story "If I could only be asleep". After closure of Open City Press Bryan relocated to Southern California. After a stint working for Art Kunkin as managing editor of the Los Angeles Free Press, he launched Open City in Los Angeles, starting the volume numbering with vol. 2, no. 1 (May 5-11, 1967). In March 1968 he was prosecuted on an obscenity charge for printing an image of a nude woman in a record company advertisement for Leon Russell. Six months later, in September 1968, there was a second obscenity bust over the short story "Skinny Dynamite" by Jack Micheline, about the sexual antics of an underage girl, in a literary supplement to Open City edited by Charles Bukowski. The cost of Bryan's legal defense and a $1000 fine on the first charge eventually put the shoestring operation out of business. Issues present in this collection are: "Open City Press." [San Francisco, 1964-1965, numbered as Volume 1 ]: The announcement for issue 1, and Vol. 1 issues 3-7, 10 and 11(published from November 1964-Feb.23.1965, out of the total number of 15 issues published). Then continued as "Open City". [Los Angeles, 1967 - 1968: Volume 2 ]: Issues 1-4, 6-20, 23-25, 27, 28, 30-33, 35-43, 45, 47, 49-50, 52-83, 87-91 [66 is mis-numbered 65 on cover; 90 is mis-numbered 89]. All (except no. 18) have Bukowski contributions. Number 20, First National Edition. The Pot Scene. Number 52, May 1968, is the "First Anniversary Issue", with Renaissance, first issue,included, (this copy signed by John Bryan), with contributions by Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, Charles Bukowski, Lenore Kandel, Anais Nin, Carol Berge, Anselm Hollow, Bob Kaufman, a.o.

Landmark underground paper (at the same time one of the most important subversive and revolutionary papers of the world), pioneering in modern avant garde art and counterculture of the sixties, lavishly illustrated with much colour and spectacular designs on the wrappers. Edited by Richard Neville and others. Artwork and contributions by: Martin Sharp, Rick Cuff, R. Crumb, Michael English, Larry Smart, Vytas Serelis, John Hurford, Willem (= Bernard Holtrop). Other contributors include: Andy Warhol, Germaine Greer, Edward de Bono, Colin MacInnes, Peter Porter, Alan Watts, Dave Dellinger, Auberon Waugh, Raymond Durgnat, Pete Townsend, a.o. - Number 5 "Special Surprise Issue" was issued as a yellow poster "Plant a Flower Child" (114 x 76 cm) folded to 28,7 x 19 cm). Oz Magazine, along with International Times was the underground magazine of the late Sixties in England. The magazine originated in Australia where it was founded by Richard Neville and Martin Sharp, who had moved to the UK in early 1967. The lavish and admirable illustrations are by Martin Sharp (the Bob Dylan cover of no. 7 is widely known), Rick Cuff, R. Crumb, Michael English, Larry Smart, Vytas Serelis, John Hurford, Willem (= Bernard Holtrop). Contributors included Germaine Greer, artist and filmmaker Philippe Mora, photographer Robert Whitaker, journalist Lillian Roxon, cartoonist Michael Leunig, Angelo Quattrocchi and David Widgery. We also find Andy Warhol, Edward de Bono, Colin MacInnes, Peter Porter, Alan Watts, Dave Dellinger, Auberon Waugh, Raymond Durgnat, Pete Townsend, a.o. With the emergence of new printing techniques and fluorescent inks and the use of new stock (also metallic foils). Oz quickly won renown as one of the most visually exciting publications of its time. Several issues of Oz include psychedelic wrap-around or pull-out posters by Sharp, London design duo Hapshash and the Coloured Coat and others. The all-graphic "Magic Theatre" edition (Oz no. 16), overseen by Sharp and Mora, has been described by British author Jonathon Green as "arguably the greatest achievement of the entire British underground press." The magazine regularly enraged the British Establishment with a range of left-field stories including heavy critical coverage of the Vietnam War (cover of no. 10) and the anti-war movement, discussions of drugs, sex and alternative lifestyles, and contentious political stories, such as the magazine's revelations about the torture of citizens under the rule of the military junta in Greece. In 1970, the editors put a notice in the magazine inviting "school kids" to edit an issue. The opportunity was taken up by around 20 secondary school students who produced "SCHOOLKIDS OZ". This term was widely misunderstood to mean that it was intended for school children, whereas it was a statement that it had been created by them. Oz was one of several 'underground' publications targeted by the Obscene Publications Squad, and their offices had already been raided on several occasions, but the conjunction of schoolchildren and arguably obscene material set the scene for the infamous Oz obscenity trial of 1971.This brought the magazine to the attention of the wider public. John Lennon and Yoko Ono joined the protest march against the prosecution and organised the recording of "God Save Oz" by the Elastic Oz Band to raise funds and gain publicity. The T-Shirt included with the set was meant to raise funds for the defense.

The PIC-Bulletin: Issued every month by Lisa Bieberman, Cambridge,Mass. (out of 35 numbers published). "Miss Bieberman, a resident of 26 Boylston St., Cambridge, runs a one-woman organization called the Psychedelic information Center for users of LSD and similar drugs. Her main aim is to bring psychedelic information out into the open because she believes people can use psychedelics constructively in their daily lives". While studying at Harvard University, Lisa Bieberman volunteered at Timothy Leary's office, later helping him with daily operations at Millbrook and acting as circulation manager for The Psychedelic Review. 1963, Lisa opened the Psychedelic Information Center near Harvard Square, where for a few years she sold photo-offset reprints of various topical publications, along with her own writings. She dreamed that similar information centers would someday be available in every major city, providing advice and factual data for people interested in learning about the potential benefits and possible pitfalls of psychedelics. In 1965, Lisa started publishing the bimonthly Psychedelic Information Center Bulletin; 35 issues were produced in total. In their 1967 book LSD--The Problem-Solving Psychedelic, authors Peter Stafford and Bonnie Golightly describe the PIC Bulletin as "the outstanding example of an LSD newsletter, focused around events associated with the burgeoning 'psychedelic information centers.'" Within her booklet Session Games People Play: A Manual for the Use of LSD, Lisa shared her no-nonsense advice for those considering trying psychedelics.

Dezember 1972 fand in Jobstgreuth eine Hausdurchsuchung bei der Landkommune UPN-Sippe von circa 20 Kriminalbeamten statt. „Einen richterlichen Hausdurchsuchungsbefehl hatte man keinen, brauchte ihn auch nicht, da die Gefahr im Vorzug schien“.Beschlagnahmt wurden Kundenkarteien, Geschäftsbriefe, persönliche Korrespondenz und die Kommunemitglieder mussten eine körperliche Untersuchung über sich ergehen lassen. Nach der Meinung von Martin war diese Hausdurchsuchung „für die deutsche Untergrundpresse und Kommunebewegung (…) ein warnendes Zeichen“, da die Alternativpresse und die verschiedenen Lebensgemeinschaften Anfangs der 1970er Jahre im Aufbau begriffen und bei der Bevölkerung sowie staatlichen Behörden auf Unverständnis gestoßen waren.

► detailed description

In the 60's/70's the Kansaigakuin University was the breading ground for student activism of various directions: Zenkyôtô, Zenagakujichi, Seikyô and Sekigun (Red Army, which was the most active). At the culmination point of the struggles it seems that the Red Army students had pressed the editorial office of the University newspaper to print this parody with the logo of the Red Army replacing the official logo and to place the name of the Red Army in large print on the front page. This was similar to the logo of the journal of the Japanese communist party Akahata (The Red Standard). Special issue on Drugs, Mind Liberating Plants, Green Revolution. (On the front page in capitals: Drug Freegras). Marijuana and LSD were the keywords for mental freedom, and here a guide is offered how to cultivate and fabricate it, and they advocate free distribution all over Japan. The picture of the love-making couple placed over a large image of a marihuhana leaf on the front page went too far for the authorities, the partciipants were arrested and the journal was forbidden.
