|Contempory blind tooled half calf over paper covered boards. The upper joint has cracked, but the board is still firmly attached by the cords. The spine divided in six tooled panels by five raised and gilt bands with gilt titles in the second compartment. The leather tooled and gilt ruled along the edges. Errata leaf bound right before the preface, pp. xvi, 420.Illustrated with 7 (of 8) hand coloured aquatint plates (*), 10 (of 11) black & white plates of which 8 aquatints as well, 4 maps of which 3 folding and 30 woodcuts in the text. The plates missing are the often lacking b/w botanical plate plus the plate entitled “View of the Landing place at Pulo Leat”. There, however, are no traces of removed plates, so that most likely they never were bound in.(*) The missing hand coloured aquatint plate is supplied from another copy and has been loosely inserted; so actually all eight plates are present. However, the greater part of the margins of this plate has been trimmed, so that this single sheet is much smaller than the paper of the other seven plates (please see picture #18).Abel’s voyage on the Alceste left Spithead on February 8, 1816 and first led him to Madeira. From there they sailed to Table Bay, South Africa, then onwards to Java, from there to China and then back to England via South Africa once more. On their return journey the ship was wrecked, but all passengers were rescued and they continued their voyage aboard the Termate. Abel’s rich collections, unfortunately, except for a small botanical collection which he had handed over to R. Brown before, got lost.
The upper compartment of the spine bears, in gilt, the crest of arms of the clan of Maconochie of Meadowbank, while on the inner frontboard there is the armorial bookplate of the clan of Maclean of Ardgour. So the book was passed on from one noble Scottish family to another, though we do not know how. If you have any information, then please let us know.

De Zeike Reizieger, or Rambles in Java and the Straits in 1852 by a Bengal Civilian
De Zeike Reizieger, or Rambles in Java and the Straits in 1852 by a Bengal Civilian
Authors: Edwards, William, d. 1890, Kinloch, C. W. (Charles Walter), d. 1893, supposed author
Publisher London : Simpkin, Marshall
Rambles in Java and the Straits Settlement Paperback – Dec 1987
by Charles Walter Kinloch (Author)
Travel in South-East Asia may seem to be wild and exotic – but it is certainly not the path less travelled. This classic book was first published in 1853 by ‘Bengal Civilian’ (Charles Walter Himloch) as De Zieke Reiziger (‘The Invalid Traveller’), and is an account of the author and his wife’s travels from Penang, to Singapore, and on to Java in 1852 – a time before guidebooks, travel agencies and package tours.
And while the times may have changed, the adventure and everyday frustrations are still the same. The pair travel for medical reasons, to recover from an unspecified ailment. Their travels are not really that different from today, except that there is no guidebook, and travel is often horse powered instead of petrol.
But the extended delays, at-times perilous sea journeys, even the ease of passage requiring letters of recommendation (i.e. knowing some who can smooth your journey) are all too common today.
Many observations captured in the book are still (perhaps arguably) relevant today. For example: “The community of Singapore … is a community of merchants, whose whole time and thoughts are absorbed in money making…”, and “Dutch cooking … is disgusting”, the standard of accommodation often questionable, and travel between town on Java often taking longs periods of time.
What does stand this book apart are the observations of Java at the time when it was a Dutch colony. The author clearly has disdain for the Dutch, their cleanliness, dress sense, and cuisine, but if the reader can see through this, the book becomes a simple observation of life in Java at a time when it was emerging from an exotic unknown to the country it is today.

A Banned Author & That anHonor to Him — Original Printed Wrappers
Heine, Heinrich. Vermischte Schriften. Hamburg: Hoffmann & Campe, 1854. Small 8vo. (18.5 cm; 7.25″). 3 vols. I:  ff., 322 pp. II: xviii, 317,  pp. III:  ff., 310 pp.,  f.
Among the books that the Nazis burned that infamous night in 1933 in Berlin’s Opernplatz were works by Heinrich Heine, both because he was a Jew who converted to Christianity and because of his friendship with Marx and the liberal ideas and ideals contained in his writings.
The contents of these three volumes were written over the course of many years including during the last years of Heine’s life when he was confined to his bed in Paris, the city he made his home beginning in 1831, after leaving Germany.
Vermischte Schriften (“Miscellaneous Writings”), in three volumes, is precisely “miscellaneous” in its contents: Vol. I is composed of “Gestaendnisse” (“Confessions,” an autobiographical work), “Die Goetter im Exil” (“The Gods in Exile,” a prose essay), “Die Goettin Diana” (“The Goddess Diana,” a ballet scenario, from 1846), “Ludwig Marcus: Denkworte” (“Ludwig Marcus: Recollections,” a prose essay), and “Gedichte. 1853 und 1854″ (“Poems. 1854 and 1854″). Vols. II and III contain his collected journalism about France (i.e, “Lutezia”), his observations on French politics, government, and intellectual life from 1831 to 1848. These were originally written for the Cotta family’s newspaper the Allgemeine Zeitung.
First edition of all volumes.
Uncut and unopened, in original printed wrappers, variously darkened and a little chipped; text with some discoloration and foxing, again “variously,” due to the quality of the paper. Over all a rather nice set that has not suffered at the hands of either binder or reader. (33286)

About this author
Han Suyin (Pinyin: Hán Sùyīn) is the pen name of Elizabeth Comber, born Rosalie Elisabeth Kuanghu Chow (Pinyin: Zhōu Guānghú). She is a Chinese-born Eurasian
author of several books on modern China, novels set in East Asia, and autobiographical works, as well as a physician. She currently resides in Lausanne and has written in English and French.
Renowned Chinese-born writer Han Suyin, whose autobiographical novel was turned into the popular American film Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing, has died in Lausanne, Switzerland, Chinese and Swiss media said on Sunday. She was 95.
Han, the author of about 40 books on modern China, died on Friday, Xinhua reported, citing her family.
The frail-looking and charismatic Han was branded both as a “Chinese revolutionary” in the West and “bourgeois” in communist China, with her work, often based on her own life straddling the two worlds.
Novels and essays by the thrice-married Han, as well as her meetings with Indira Gandhi, Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai, earned her a worldwide reputation.
The writer’s biggest work was a five-volume autobiography, while other writings included biographies of Mao and Zhou, and a study on Tibet.
She had been one of the few foreigners to be able to visit communist China in the early years of the regime. In a 1968 interview with France’s Le Figaronewspaper, she said Mao was “the greatest man China has known”.
Born Matilda Rosalie Elizabeth Chow in Henan province on September 12, 1917, Han was the daughter of a Chinese railway engineer and his Belgian wife. She studied medicine in China before continuing her studies in Belgium in the 1930s and later in London.
She later changed her name to Rosalie Elizabeth Comber and chose Han Suyin as a pen name. “Suyin” means ordinary voice in Chinese.
She was criticised for supporting Mao’s Great Leap Forward in the 1950s and the later Cultural Revolution.
Han’s work as a nurse in China during the war against the Japanese occupation in 1938 stoked her patriotic feelings.
She qualified as a doctor in London in 1948, meantime having a disappointing marriage with her first husband, Dang Baoyang, an anti-communist engineer.
He was killed during China’s civil war, after which Han abandoned medicine and started writing, in Chinese, English and French.
She wrote A Many-Splendored Thing in Hong Kong based on her romance with British war correspondent Ian Morrison, who was killed in the Korean War in 1950.
The book was adapted for the silver screen in 1955.
She married a British anti-espionage specialist, Leon Comber, and worked as a doctor in Malaysia and Singapore, during which time she grew increasingly sympathetic with communism.
She returned to China in 1956, when she was greeted with great fanfare by then premier Zhou.
Having divorced Comber, she later married a third time, to Indian engineer named Vincent Ruthnaswany, with whom she had lived in Lausanne.
Han frequently returned to China and in 1984 wrote a historical novel set in China and Switzerland, The Enchantress.
Funeral services for Han are planned for Thursday in Lausanne, the Swiss news agency ATS reported.

Dr. Han Suyin, 1972
(Audio recording joined in progress)…people of China has everybody agitating the “Little Red Book” and everybody shouting the same slogans and some who like China bravely say, “Well, this is the way it ought to be” but in themselves, they still have a few misgivings. And others, of course, frankly criticize. I can say that this picture is not altogether correct. It is quite true –and I think that this is a philosophical truth which we must agree on – that there has been no great movement in the world, no other really great movement that has changed the world that has not had basic philosophy as its foundation. If we go back in the history of humanity, we find that many such books looked upon as religious books did provoke great movements and these great movements – they changed the world. And so we must agree that unless there are basic principles; basic philosophical principles; basic political principles which animate the mass of people–ideas; new ideas which come to them and which open their minds to a new way of looking at things–we shall not have anything new. And therefore, waiving the Little Red Book may be symbol which you dislike, but it was a symbol of learning a new philosophy. It is not only what is written in the Little Red Book that I am speaking of but it is the whole of the philosophy that Mao Zedong made accessible not a small elite but to one quarter of humanity. And this philosophy, this way of looking, has transformed one quarter of humanity who only a few years ago–even ten years ago–was still thinking in medieval terms on the intellectual way, was still thinking in a way which was destructive to their own best interests. It has transformed a great many of them.
I would like to elaborate a little on this. I do not look upon what Mao Zedong has written by trying to give it any name. You can call it Marxism-Leninism; I am not a Marxist. I look at it from a scientific view now. And from a scientific point of view, I can say that I personally feel that what he has written and what the Chinese people are learning is rigorously a scientific way of thinking; the dialectical way of thinking and analysis.
Now, you will say, “How can this help? How can this make for better crops? How can this make for factories? How can this make for a better life?” Well it does and I’ll tell you why: It’s because it is much closer to reality. It is reality. And when you know what reality is; when you are not living in a dream world; when you cope with reality as it is, then you become scientific-minded. Then you understand the principles by which you can really produce results.
I had not seen it before. And in these three years, I have seen it. I have seen peasants who really now begin to understand the scientific way of growing things–not superstition. Not thinking that if they do some mumbo jumbo then the crops will be better, but really analyzing the soil and the rain and the sun and looking upon it in a dialectic way. That means from both sides–seeing its effects; seeing its cause to effect and not only that, but also how its effects can transform itself and again transform themselves so that the primary or original shape has now become another. And when you have peasants doing this kind of analytical thinking, they have made a great leap into the future. They have become scientists. They now understand not only what they have been doing but they cancreate. And it is a tremendous creativity of a whole people released which is so exhilarating. And that is why I also sound as if I were a bit idealistic because I myself–being always on the lookout for something new–I have found this tremendously stimulating. I have found it so stimulating that you can spend hours in a commune talking with peasants and find them grasping these ideas and manipulating abstract concepts in such a way that, really, they are shaping something new. And they are now applying all this not only to their daily living, to coping with the earth with the crops and so on, but also as a preparation for themselves for the future. Now this what was so interesting to me; this is the main thing that I think the Cultural Revolution has done.
Chairman Mao during his rural inspection tour in Henan (Honan) Province in 1958.
And the other, the second most important thing that it has done besides this opening of the mind–this emancipation and true liberation of the mind–the second thing that it has done is a moral–a moral standard of values. Now we all accept that there should be a standard of morality but sometimes we feel that morality is very boring and annoying. And sometimes we feel that freedom resides in the throwing away of all that is called the shackles but when we do that, do we really have freedoms? And what does “freedom” mean?
In China, what has come now is the realization that self indulgence is not freedom; that putting “me” first all the time is not freedom. But that true freedom and the ways of freedom reside in unselfishness and serving others–what is called “serving the people.” And this also has become something genuine. Right up to now, I tell you, right up to now I did not feel it inside and now I feel it. All the years I did not feel it–now I feel it. Now it has become almost a habit. To think of others first before thinking of oneself not for everybody but for quite a few people–quite a few people– and this also is very entrancing because it becomes a habit. And when it becomes a habit of the mind—when it becomes so easy and so simple and so natural—to really love your neighbor more than yourself, then you have a new society, but not before.
You cannot make this society upon edicts. You cannot make it by giving orders. It must come from each person and this is also what I have found this year which I had not realized before. There is a way now that when you walk about—and I have been in the interior provinces like Sichuan (Szechwan) and Guizhou (Kweichow) and Xinjiang (Sinkiang )—places that are not visited; places that are far out and when there, you see it. When there you see the countryside alive with this new spirit, then you really feel that something has been done. When you find that housewives really now get together and organize little factories and do something about it, and that’s…generally, they have not they have not done this for any gain for themselves but because they feel they have to serve their community. Because they feel they have to serve the people. Then you are somewhere. And this happens on a large scale; a little everywhere. Again, I am not saying that everybody thinks the same way. I am quite sure that there are still a lot of selfish people in China. I’m quite sure of it. But there are quite enough people around now who have grasped this; for whom it has become a second way of life and when that it is infinitely more rewarding than in which the one they only sought for private gain in a way that really now I feel the revolution can be carried forward in order to truly create socialism as itshould be and not the kind of thing that we have seen in certain countries, which was a bureaucratic elite imposed upon people.
Now you have been told about the achievements by many other people. I would only like to concentrate on what I have seen in a certain province. Near Ruijin in Jiangxi (Chiang-hsi) Province, I have seen and crossed thirteen bridges over fairly wide rivers. Thirteen bridges, large bridges, built by the peasants’ commune themselves without costing any cent to anybody, built to serve the people.

I have seen small factories in the communes. Small factories run by women. Small factories run by young people. Small factories run young girls. And I asked them, I said, “How did you start?” And they said, “Well, I don’t know…Two or three of us got the idea, then we talked to others, then we all got together, then we did it.” And I say, “But how? Did you ask any money from the government?” “Oh, no! Oh, we would never think of doing that! Oh, no; we did it ourselves. We started using …Well, somebody brought maybe a pair of scissors and somebody else brought the bench and a third on brought this and we put it all together and then we went to a neighboring factory and we asked them to lend us two workers who knew something and (they) asked (us), ‘What would you like us to do?’ and (we) said, ‘Well, we would like to make this or that’ and so we started. And now it’s doing well.”
I visited such a factory of housewives near…in Zhangshu (Chang-shu). They had started with seven housewives who had, between them, been told by their husbands to stay at home (laughter from the audience) because their husbands made enough money. Their husbands were steelworkers or cadres. And their husbands said, “I want my wife at home. I want her to be at home and cook my mean when I’m back.” And you know, these women—young—they were around about between 25 to 35, they thought to themselves, “Well that is not a good way of serving the people, so they got together. And they put their money together. They had, altogether seven of them, they had ¥50 Yuan, which is $25, which is £10. They had £10 and with that, they bought two benches and about seven large scissors because some of them had gone to a neighboring factory and they had said, “We want to do something,” and the neighboring factory had laughed— “Ha ha” —and they said, “Well, you can make those thin strips of metal to wrap bales with…To tie up bales with.” So they had started with that and they did that for a few months and they did it so well that after a few months, they had made a bit more money. They now had, I think, about $200. And, with that, they bought a machine and they made more. And with that, they were able to buy another machine and they said, “Let’s diversify.” So, they went back to the factory and they said, “We’re ready to do some more,” so the factory gave them other spare pieces other spare pieces to do. And, little by little like this, they have now built a factory of 143 people making $10 million a year. This $10 million they give to the State. They…pay themselves $35 a month. They make $10 million making small, spare parts of all kinds for several factories around. This is one example – and there are so many more; there are masses of examples like that – of people doing things in the factories, in the communes, everywhere. This would not be true if there was not this new spirit; the spirit of initiative, the spirit of serving the people.
When I told this story in America, somebody said, when I got to the $10 million bit somebody said, “My, my! That’s a real capitalist enterprise!” (laughter from the audience) I said, “Yes, it is! Accept for one little difference – very small difference: They did not keep the money for themselves. They gave it to the State.” Apart from taking a little bit to buy some more machines because they are now going to do something more – I think now they are building spare parts for tractors – apart from that, drawing a plan for that and giving it to the State, all the rest went to the State and they were very happy that way. And when I interviewed them and I asked them, I said, “But aren’t you going to raise your salaries?” they looked at me and they said, “But what for? We have everything we need!” There is no point in accumulating a lot of money. You wouldn’t know what to do with it, anyway.
Now for the bad things because, of course, there are bad things. One should not only talk of the good things, because if one does, one is not at all impartial. Are there still selfish people in China? Yes, there are! Of course there are! There are constantly selfish people doing selfish things as there are anywhere else. But the way of dealing with them is quite different. The way of dealing with them in China is for everybody who is around them, not to immediately insult them and no punishment, but to try to show them and to educate them; to try to show them that really, they’re not doing themselves or anybody else any good by what they do. And I remember one terribly moving story I was told by a cadre who said: “Well, I had a friend who had a very beautiful watch and this friend also had a very weak heart. And this friend said to me, ‘When I die’ – he was a bit pessimistic about himself because he’s still not dead – (laughter from the audience) but he said, ‘When I die, I’ll give you my watch.’” And he said, “One evening my friend laid there and he was very ill and I had to come look after him. And I looked at his watch and I looked at him. And suddenly the thought crossed my mind: Now if he dies, I’ll get that watch.” (laughter from the audience) And he said, “For a moment, I said…Well I won’t call the doctor and I’ll get the watch.” And then he said, “I went and called the doctor.” And he said, “I feel ashamed of myself for having had these terrible thoughts.” But he was able to speak of it; he was able to face it. His face it. And his friend is well and alive and wanted to give him the watch. He said, “Take the watch since you like it so much” and he said, “No, I won’t take it. And they are better friends than before. But he was able to face himself; he was able to see that he also had these terrible thoughts.
Chairman Mao relaxing at Jinggangshan (Chingkangshan), 1965.
And you see, with the dialectical method applied to everybody nobody expects other people to be ideal. Nobody expects other people not to have defects. There is a good and bad side to everybody so they can accept themselves as they are and so that their good side can try to change the bad side. And that is the way philosophy also acts in your personal life. It is the same in marriage. Marriage is not “…and they married and were happy ever after.” You know that. (laughter from the audience) Marriage should be, “…and they married and they worked hard at their marriage ever after” because you have to work hard at a marriage to make it go. But if you get married with the kind of idea that is sometimes spread here, that the other person must be as you think they must be, otherwise there’s something wrong with them, you’re not going to get anywhere much with your marriage. But if, like the Chinese, you don’t expect them to be necessarily ideal but neither do you expect them to be absolute demons, then you sit down and you talk problems over.
And this is where I was most moved. It was in the dialectical method [of] Mao Zedong Thought dealing with the family problems. There are family classes in Mao Zedong Thought. What does that mean? That means that in a family, old and young, and may I remind you that in China the family is not destroyed; that most grandparents live with their children and grandchildren—families sit together and they talk over things. They read Mao Zedong and then they try to make democracy work in the family. How does democracy work in the family? In China before, there was a great deal of the paternal —of the father having a lot of rights, and talking and telling everybody what to do. And this has now disappeared, or is disappearing. Not everybody, of course. We must remember that probably there still are a few men throwing their weight around. But otherwise, in these family conclaves, you have the children speaking up and that is the way that children can speak to their parents. And you have parents speaking and giving their point of view. And so when in America, they ask me whether there is a generation gap in China, I said, “You mean don’t talk to each other.” I said, “In China, a young man who does not talk to his parents is not considered to be truly revolutionary. If he is truly a revolutionary, he must be good at talking with older people and persuading them; at changing their ideas.” I think that in the families today, there is because and precisely because there is a new way of looking at things; there is a great deal more of family feelings then there ever was. There is a great deal more of understanding and of health in the family.
And this consolidates, of course, social life too. It makes for a better society; a more harmonious one. Not that there are no difficulties, but these difficulties can be debated openly and today in China you will find that there are two slogans that constantly recur besides the one of fighting selfishness, of serving the people . There are two others that constantly recur and one is that you must investigate every situation; you must not make up your mind hastily. You must investigate and study. And the second one is that you must debate and talk and persuade and educate and not rush off to make hasty judgments. But you must debate and educate.
Now I think that in this type of society, of course, there will be people coming to it who will find that is singularly lacks luster. I mean [indistinct] there are no clubs and so on. And they say, “What do people do with themselves?” Well, I can assure you that people have a very good time. They have a very good time because they truly feel that they are doing something worthwhile. Because every small thing — whether you are sweeping the floor or whether you are baking a cake or whether you are working a machine or whether you are building a bridge or whether you are flying planting corn – has a meaning beyond the meaning of the act. It is full of the value of doing something for the collective good; for the people and for the revolution. It is a way of advancing. And after all, what is the meaning of life than to find a meaning to everything normal, everything small? Not to rush of to do something outstanding, heroic [indistinct] or something that you think will be outside of the ordinary, but to be able to live fully, your life every day in the knowledge that what you are doing is really serving others; doing good for others; not only for yourself but forothers —and the others first.
I think that there is this feeling, a greater reward than in any other. A greater reward than in amassing money and a much greater reward indeed than in just imprisoning the self in self. And so I have thought that there was a meaning to freedom. Huey Newton, the Black Panther who went to China this year said in America on television that the only place where he had felt free is China. Perhaps he was exaggerating a bit. I won’t argue about that. But what he meant was that he felt there that the kind of pressures that he felt in his own society were not there. And it is a great pressure indeed when you are confined, cribbed and caged within your own little self and you’re always only thinking of that. It is a much greater freedom to be thinking in much greater terms of everybody else.
And now in China, it is not only China that they are thinking about, but the whole world. As Mao Zedong said and has repeated again and again, “China’s contribution to the world has been too little so far. We must give more.” And in this giving, it is already felt throughout the world. China gives $750 million in aid, $250 million more than the USSR—this is fromThe New York Times; and The New York Times adds: “And whereas other countries exact strict businesslike terms, most of China’s aid is without interest—long-term—and is designed towards the recipients’ advantage.” And so, you see, this can even be recognized by a newspaper which, after all, is not really distinctly, shall I say, to the left. (laughter from the audience) And this kind of giving is only the beginning of what China can do and will do, for I believe that you will see in the years to come that a new spirit will emanate from China and that more and more people from the world will recognize this spirit and this spirit is based upon what Mao Zedong has said and repeated again and again: “Serve the people.” Not only the people of one color or one nation, but the people of the world; those who work and those who toil.
And now this is what I have found, at last, in China this year. I have never spoken like this because I was not quite sure. This year, I am sure I have seen it. And because I have seen it, I have been made very happy. I have been very happy and now, to finish, some people will say, “Yes, but won’t this change? Will China stay like that or will she too change?” Nobody can guarantee the future. That is why we must always be vigilant. And the Chinese themselves will tell you that the question is not settled. Therefore, there must be many, many people who are imbued with this spirit, for it is not in edicts and laws and a small elite that you can impose these things. It must be done by the masses; by all the masses together; by the people who work and toil: the peasants, the soldiers, the workers who must understand this. They are the guarantee; the people, and the people alone, are the force that moves history. I did not understand that before and now I know it. It is true—it is true, it is in their hands and it is where they all manifest themselves. And if the peoples of the world also learn this lesson—that what they call “democracy” is truly that: taking the responsibility upon yourself of serving the people of the world, then only will there be a changed world. Thank you very much. (Applause) ✭

- Beatles Illustrated Lyrics Book Dell by Alan Aldridge First Edition 1972

- Did we say the most famous day in Beatles history? Make that the most famous day in of ALL OF ROCK ‘N’ ROLL HISTORY. The revolution was televised, and more than 73 million people (a full 40% of the U.S. population) tuned in for the Fab Four’s first performance on American soil. No one living had ever seen a global cultural phenomenon quite like Beatlemania before—and it has never been eclipsed since. In retrospect, John, Paul, George and Ringo’s Ed Sullivanappearance was bigger than Elvis’ hip gyrations. Bigger than Dylan plugging in at Newport. Bigger than Michael Jackson’s moonwalk. Maybe even bigger than Neil Armstrong’s moonwalk!
- After all the fainting, swooning and screaming had subsided in Ed Sullivan’s studio, the triumphant Fab Four hopped into their limo and hightailed it back to the Plaza Hotel. George stayed behind to nurse his cold, while John, Paul and Ringo (plus John’s wife Cynthia) set out to paint the Big Apple red. First stop: Drinks at the Playboy Club. Then off to the legendary Peppermint Lounge—ground zero for the Twist dance craze. Documentary filmmakers Albert and David Maysles memorably captured Ringo in a feverish dance-floor courtship with Peppermint girl Geri Miller. Off to the side, John, Cynthia and Paul shot the breeze with cocktails and cigarettes. (Actual footage can be viewed here: youtube.com/watch?v=DNJmP1cJdKA.) The party finally broke up in the wee hours…or so it seemed.
- According to a 1964 interview with Geri Miller (posted on the “Truth About the Beatles’ Girls” blog site), “[Ringo] asked what I was doing later and could he see me. I flipped. Of course, I answered, the only thing is, I don’t get off work until 4 A.M. I knew Ringo didn’t want to stay in the Lounge and wait for me because the place was crawling with photographers, and I knew he didn’t want to go back to his hotel with the rest of the group. ‘I’ve got it,’ I announced, ‘why don’t you wait for me at my apartment. I live right around the corner. I have a hi-fi and dozens of albums. You can listen to all of our popular recording artists until I get there.’ Ringo liked the idea. I gave him the key to my apartment and directions…When I got to my door I heard the TV and…rang the bell and shoeless Ringo answered…I made him breakfast and we talked and talked…By now it was close to 7 A.M…I walked him to the door and kissed him goodnight. ‘Just a minute,’ I called out as he waited for the elevator. I ran into the hallway and gave him a Peppermint Lounge souvenir key-chain and told him to ‘use it and think of me.’ I watched him put his keys on the chain and slip them into his pocket.”
- Ringo and Geri weren’t the only ones to exchange a Peppermint Lounge memento that historic night. Just several hours earlier, the drummer and his two mop-topped bandmates had autographed this very postcard for their Peppermint waitress—with George later adding his signature once he was on the mend. The waitress folded the postcard in quarters, resulting in a horizontal and vertical fold that thankfully do not visually distract from the exquisitely bold, clear signatures. Better yet, because the card happened to have been folded inward rather than outward, the related surface creasing appears to almost exclusively affect the picture side (rather adding to the charming vintage appeal, we must say) and remains quite subtle on the signature side. Lastly, to the far right of the signatures, a 1/4″ vertical strip appears to have been excised from the edge.
- Foremost Beatles autograph expert Frank Caiazzo’s LOA, dated 6/6/07, reads in part, “A waitress at the club, who was serving the band all night, obtained their signatures on this picture postcard, which measures 5″ x 3.5″. John, Paul and Ringo have signed very nicely in blue ballpoint. This card also contains the first name pencil signature of George Harrison, which was later obtained by Beatles staff and then returned to the waitress at the club, as she was initially disappointed that she did not get to get his autograph. There are very few [complete Beatles autograph] sets in existence which were signed on this, the most important day in Beatles history.” Encapsulated and Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA/DNA.
- Also included is a (desirable in its own right) CBS original press photo from the iconic Dezo Hoffman “collarless suit” photo session. Considered the most emblematic images of that transformative time, this 7″ x 9″ example represents the perfect complement not only to the Peppermint postcard, but also to the Beatles signed Hoffman photo offered as the adjacent lot in this auction. An official CBS archiving label on the reverse is dated 6/30/64 and describes a re-airing of the Ed Sullivan Showepisode on July 12th. There is also a date-stamping from 7/15/1964, and two from December—along with several more usages ranging from 1970 through 1983. Typical creasing and crazing throughout, as is often seen on period published photos. Encapsulated as Type I by PSA/DNA.

Photographer Kal Muller was exploring one of the most remote places on earth: Irian Jaya, the Indonesian half of the island of New Guinea and home to the Kamoro people, whose culture, it was widely believed, was extinct.
By happenstance Muller stumbled upon an initiation ceremony and uncovered a thriving, traditional way of life. With longtime collaborator David Pickell and two Kamoro friends-Aloysius Akiniyau, a guide, and Apollo Takati, a schoolteacher-Muller set out to rediscover the Kamoro people. Traveling …
