Jim's 1st Self Published Poetry Book: The Lords

  'The Lords: Notes On Vision' by Jim Morrison



'The Lords: Notes On Vision' by Jim Morrison        
A RARE FIND! We have just acquired a first edition (one copy of only 100!) of Morrison's first privately published poetry edition, which was printed up by Jim Morrison himself through Western Lithographers in the spring of 1969.
Being the first work ever published by Morrison, many were tossed out when received thinking Jim's poetry was a joke. Many were treated haphazardly, damaged and no longer exist. But this copy, which was given to his friend and HWY film collaborator, Frederick Myrow, while still a little worn, still retains all 82 of the original pages including the three pages of additional poetry that are NOT included in the original Simon & Schuster books and all subsequent reprints.
It comes with a copy of the letter of the provenance attesting to it's background, plus our own Certificate of Authenticity and Guarantee. Cond: VG-

Jim's 2nd Self Published Poetry Book: The New Creatures

  'The New Creatures' by Jim Morrison - Signed by Ray





'The New Creatures' by Jim Morrison
Signed by Ray Manzarek
The second of Morrison's privately published poetry books printed in late Spring of 1969 by Western Lithographers. One of only 100 copies printed and paid for by Jim Morrison. Another extremely rare book! This one was given to Bill Siddon's Uncle, Bill Cruise, who used to work at The Doors studio as a maintenance man. While working there, he became acquainted with The Doors and Morrison. Jim gave him this copy of his second poetry book to Bill on one such work visit. The book comes with a letter of provenance from Bill Cruise's son as well as our own Doors Collectors Magazine Certificate of Authenticity and Guarantee. As you can see in the photos below, the book is in great condition. Ray signed the book on the inside front cover "Ray Manzarek, The Doors" years later after their friend Jim had passed. Cond: Exc+

Jim Morrison's Original Self Published
'Ode To L.A., While Thinking of Brian Jones, Deceased' Poem

'Ode To L.A., While Thinking of Brian Jones, Deceased' Poem





'Ode To L.A., While Thinking of Brian Jones, Deceased' Poem by Jim Morrison        
Jim Morrison paid all printing costs to share his feelings and passion about recently deceased Brian Jones through his love of poetry. This was Jim's own tribute to Brian - his own way of saying goodbye to the fallen Rolling Stone who he had admired so much. Jim sought to share these feelings with those who came to see The Doors at the Aquarious Theater concerts on July 21st & 22nd. Unfortunately to his chagrin, many fans trashed their gift without even reading it. Many concert goer's who were at these shows attest that these printed sheets littered the floor and filled almost every trash bin after the show. This printed sheet of paper is a private edition of Morrison's poetry - probably the most under-rated and un-appreciated piece he ever printed. In the past 20 years of working with Doors / Morrison memorabilia, I have seen fewer copies of this come up for sale than I have copies of 'The Lords'. This is truly a rarity - especially in the great condition this one is in! (M-)

High School Yearbooks:

  Ray Manzarek Senior Year Book - 1956 St. Rita High School





Ray Manzarek Senior Year Book - 1956 St. Rita High School
This is Ray's Senior Yearbook from the famous St. Rita High School! Of course it belonged to someone else who went to Ray's school (Not Ray) and has some signatures in it, but it's still in really great shape! Of all Ray's yearbooks, this is the most sought after because of the three Pre-Doors photos of Raymond Daniel Manczarek. Just check these scans out! Isn't Ray suave and deboner?! I've seen more Morrison yearbooks than I have of this one. Don't pass up your chance... Cond: Exc+

  Pamela Courson Jr Year Book 1963 Orange High School





Pamela Courson Jr Year Book 1963 Orange High
This is truly a rare copy of Pamela's 'Orange and White - Action 63' yearbook. It was a file copy so there are no signatures or paw prints within. The cover could probably use a little damp sponge action to clear off the dust that this perfect copy has from sitting around un-touched on a shelf somewhere. Click for photos below. Cond: M-

  The Official Doors / Morrison Silver Coin Set



 


Official Doors / Morrison Silver Coin Set
To many this coin is a myth. It's been rumored to have existed, but not many know the entire story. Danny Sugerman recounted the real story to me years ago: He said idea for the coin was proposed to Ray and Robby at a Doors meeting in 1991 and both loved the idea - they signed the permission papers for the limited edition set to be made (and to get their royalty fee) But for some reason John didn't make it to this particular meeting and didn't know anything about the coins. With the confusion surrounding the horrible Oliver Stoned film coming out, someone screwed up and production on the coins began without John's needed approval. When Densmore found out about the coins and disliked the idea, production immediately was halted and all coins made previous to this were recalled and destroyed. None were supposedly ever sold. But somehow a few slipped out - this is one of a few coins that still exists today.
As you can see from the photo link below, this is a very classy item and much thought went into the embossed suede presentation case, the booklet / sticker enclosures as well as the design of the sealed mint condition coin which bares the likeness of Morrison on one side and the official Doors logo on the other. The unusually rare coin is one troy ounce of .999 fine silver but worth it's weight in gold to the right lucky Doors fan. Cond: M.

  The Official Doors / Morrison Silver Coin Proof



Official Doors / Morrison Silver Coin Proof
What a find! Only a handful of these proofs exist thanks to an alert coin press operator / Doors fan who saved a handful of proofs for the above coin, as the production run was getting underway. Yes! These ARE the same coin that was in the original rare sets (as seen above), except these lack an edition number engraved on them. Same troy ounce of .999 fine silver with a spectacular finish, only these leave some additional ounces in your wallet. Click below to see close ups of these rare silver proofs. Cond: M.

  Rick & The Ravens Business Card




Rick & The Ravens Business Card
This card was given to a drummer in a band that played with Rick and the Ravens in 1964. He held on to it till the day I bought it from him. It has two pinholes in it where he had it tacked on his wall. It is a little yellowed everywhere except where the tack heads were. Everything is very clear and easy to read as you can see from the scan below. This is a very rare item and I have only seen one other that belonged to another one of the Ravens when we interviewed them for our Encyclopedia project. Cond: Exc

  Jim Morrison / Lizard King Action Figure Prototype



Jim Morrison / Lizard King Action Figure Prototype
This complete cast resin model of Morrison titled, "The Lizard King", was sculpted by Al Reboiro with the 60s backdrop and box art produced by John F. Knapp. It was made by a company called Posthumous Productions, but was never put into production for the masses due to a licensing fees. No date was found anywhere. This box is numbered #5. It comes complete with a resin case Fender Amp and a bottle of Jack Daniels. It is very detailed and would look awesome put together. I am not a model builder, nor was the collector I bought it from, so it has remained in the box still wrapped up in foam and bubble wrap since it was obtained. Condition is Exc+...just slight wear on box.
