Lot 195: BURROUGHS, WILLIAM. 1914-1997. Prentice, David. Preliminary sketch for an Orgone Accumulator built for William Burroughs [New York; May, 1974]

Auction Date: Dec 05, 2018

Estimate: $1,200 - $1,800

Description: BURROUGHS, WILLIAM. 1914-1997.
Prentice, David.
Prentice, David. Preliminary sketch for an Orgone Accumulator built for William Burroughs [New York; May, 1974] Charcoal and pencil sketch on paper, titled "Orgone acc," signed "Prentice" at lower right, 350 x 280mm. The drawing showing a box like structure with measurements 84h x 30w x 30d inches. The plywood box with sheet metal lining the interior surfaces, and black fur on the exterior surfaces. Slight smudging of the charcoal. Provenance: David Prentice.Burroughs was a true believer in the Orgone Accumulator, as he said once, "No doubt about it, orgones are as definite a force as electricity." David Prentice, his artist friend, lived in the apartment below William Burroughs at Centre St, NYC, in the early 1960s. David had been a carpenter before he came to NYC, and when Burroughs arrived back in the city in May 1974 and took a spacious loft at 77 Franklin St, "one of the first jobs Burroughs had done was to ask his Painter-carpenter friend David Prentice to build him an Orgone Box. Prentice made a luxury model, with rabbit fur draped over the iron lining, which Burroughs sat in contentedly every day. 'Maybe I'm as crazy as Reich was,' he said 'but i do think there is something here,'" (Ted Morgan, Literary Outlaw: The Life and Times of William S Burroughs, p 481). David Prentice recalls a conversation with Bill about the Orgone Accumulator: Bill wanted extra organic material around it, so David found an old fur shop on Bond St, north of Houston where he bought some rather cheap old black rabbit fur coats which he cut up and used for the exterior coating. The idea of the Orgone Accumulator, a pseudo-scientific spiritual concept to harness the cosmic rays of life, was proposed in the 1930s by Wilhelm Reich and developed in the States by Reich's student Charles Kelley after Reich's death in 1957. The device became a perfect fit for some in the rise of the New Beat generation. Kerouac in On the Road describes the Orgone Accumulator belonging to Old Bull, a character based on Burroughs. Apparently Burroughs was convinced of its effectiveness and had several built in different properties, sitting in them daily and believing that it helped him to keep his addictions in check.

Title: The Seven Deadly Sins
Author: William S. Burroughs - William Seward Burroughs II (also known by his pen name William Lee; February 5, 1914 – August 2, 1997) was an American novelist, short story writer, satirist, essayist, painter, and spoken word performer. A primary figure of the Beat Generation and a major postmodernist author who wrote in the paranoid fiction genre, he is considered to be "one of the most politically trenchant, culturally influential, and innovative artists of the 20th century".[1] His influence is considered to have affected a range of popular culture as well as literature. Burroughs wrote eighteen novels and novellas, six collections of short stories and four collections of essays. Five books have been published of his interviews and correspondences. He also collaborated on projects and recordings with numerous performers and musicians, and made many appearances in films.

Estimate: €5,000 - €10,000

Description: AUTOGRAPHS & MANUSCRIPTS - BURROUGHS, William S. (American 1914 - 1997). The Valley. Autograph text of The Valley, a chapter from the author's novel, The Western Lands, 1987, pencil on sixteen loose numbered unlined sheets of tracing paper, with cardboard lined writing pad, 43.5 x 45.5 cm. Together with: The last leaf from the portfolio 'The Valley', an original etching by Keith HARING with text by William S. Burroughs, New York, George Mulder Fine Arts, 1990 on fine art paper created at Twinracker Handmade Paper in Brookston, Indiana with watermark with the initials of the artist and author 'K H' (lower left) and 'W S B' (lower right), text printed in red, signed and inscribed with number and date by the author '1/80 William S. Burroughs '89' (under the etching).
Manuscript produced specifically for reproduction in 'The Valley'. Autograph stories by William Burroughs are seldom offered.
