    Description

    The Brain Wave by Timothy Leary (1983-1984). Autographed Typescript (19 Pages, 8.5" X 11"). Miscellaneous.
    A fun, trippy, typed outline for Timothy Leary's The Personal Brain (or The Brain Wave): A Novel, which he describes as "a sophisticated espionage/adventure satire with philosophic overtones." The novel's publication was to coincide with the projected release of XOR Corporations' PC software for increasing intelligence and a video tape, which Leary describes as "Jane Fonda programs for expanding the mind." The typescript is in four sections, the main four paged outline, a three paged detailed cast of characters, a four paged write up on the video tape, and an eight paged description of a manual for "How to Increase Your Intelligence." An unrestored typescript that displays signs of use. May include light edge wear, very minor paper loss, pinholes, staple wear, or unobtrusive stains. The pages have two binder holes in the upper edge. There are hand annotations on the heading of three pages briefly commenting on the typescript. The typescript is inscribed "For Alan V. S. from Timothy." Heritage believes the autograph in this lot to be authentic, but please know before bidding that no Certificate of Authenticity is provided. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Fine/Very Fine.
