    This flyer announces an organizational meeting to support the LCFO, emphasizing its informal name, the "Black Panther Party." Huey Newton and Bobby Seale formed their Black Panther Party three months later, on October 15, 1966. Rare with no copies in OCLC (although copies are in the Litwack collection at Yale and the Yuen archive at UC Berkeley). This is one of the first uses of the black panther as a political symbol in the San Francisco Bay Area and directly connects the (mostly white) local SNCC organization with the origins of the Black Power movement.

We could not immediately identify four additional CDVs, but as three were taken in the same room, they are also probably Washington College students or staff. All four unidentified CVDs are signed, so further research may yield a positive identification. ISBN: 281AIB1017519.

Traduction; esquisse geographique et ethnographique du Kachmir ancien et moderne; examen critique des six primiers livres [Translation with geographic and ethnographic sketch of ancient and modern Kashmir, with a critique of the first six books]. Volume 3: Traduction, e claircissements historiques et chronologiques relatifs aux septieme et huitieme livres [Translation and historical and chronological explanation of the seventh and eighth books]. The northern Indian realm of Kashmir was an important center of Hinduism and later of Buddhism, and both subjects are treated in the Rajatarangini, making it an important source for the study of the history of the two religions. The original text of the Rajatarangini consists of eight books. The first three books trace the history of Kashmir from the legendary the times of the Hindu deity Krishna to the ninth century. In the remaining five books, Kalhana recounts the history from the Utpala dynasty (beginning in 855 a.d.) to Kalhana's own time. As an innovative historian, Kalhana drew upon written records, oral histories of the royal courts, and historical inscriptions carved on temples and statues. In the mid-1830s, the Calcutta Baptist Mission Press undertook a project to print the ancient Sanskrit epics for the first time, including an edition of the first six books of the Rajatarangini. Anthony Troyer, a British captain with a talent for languages, acquired a copy of the Calcutta edition and returned with it to Europe in 1835. Over the next five years, he corrected that edition and then reprinted it in Sanskrit with copious notes in French, which were published as volume one of this edition. Troyer's second volume included a translation of the first six books into French (apparently the first European translation of Kalhana's history). He had planned to provide a translation of books seven and eight at the same time, but the manuscript he requested from India went missing and other events conspired to delay publication until 1852. Volume three, which, due to the delay, is often missing from the set, is entirely devoted to a French translation of the final two books of Kalhana's text. ISBN: B00404S3OW.

There is a very slight bit of fraying to the cloth in three or four places. The spine is slightly dimmed. There is a small previous owner's name on the front free endaper. To top it off, this copy is in the original unprinted dust jacket with the title label affixed to the spine, as was Baedeker's custom in the 1890s. The jacket has some chips and wear at the corners and spine ends, and several folds (it may have been folded and inserted in the book, which is why it survives). A great copy, almost never found this nice, let alone in the jacket. [JSP01; JHG2019]
