        tud

      Guild Press Ltd, Washington DC 1966 - The first major work by Steward under his Phil Andros pseudonym, now considered a classic of gay literature. Steward, who spent most of his adult life in Chicago, had a PhD in English and taught at a variety of institutions through the mid 1940's. He left academia and made a name for himself as one of the leading tattoo artists of his day, for a time serving as the official tattoo artist for the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club in the Bay Area. He lived an open, renegade homosexual lifestyle, meticulously documenting his sexual conquests and escapades in diaries and a box marked "Stud File." After meeting Alfred Kinsey in 1949, he spent a number of years working for the Institute for Sex Research in an unofficial capacity, openly sharing the details of his sexual records and introducing Kinsey to large numbers of sexually active men in the Chicago area. In 1966, thanks to changes in American publishing laws, he published $tud under the Guild Press imprint, a novel told in a series of 18 episodes. It's the story of "a cocky male hustler who made no bones about his illicit profession, nor his countless erotic encounters." Like his character, Steward was "a macho rebel and a proud gay man writing at a time when many similar stories were still drenched in shame and guilt" (Peters, Brooks. Lover Man: The Samuel Steward Story). The rare dustjacket shows superb wraparound artwork, designed by homoerotic illustrator "Etienne" (pseud. of Dom Orejudos). Though the book was reprinted in the early 1980's by Alyson Books, the first edition is rare; we find no copies in the trade (2014), with OCLC showing 10 copies in U.S. institutions, 3 others internationally. YOUNG 66. First Printing. Octavo (21cm); black cloth, with titles stamped in gilt on spine; dustjacket; 295pp. Some trivial rubbing to crown and lower board edges, else Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $4.95), with light rubbing to panels, a few short, closed tears, and two tiny chips at upper corners of rear panel; Very Good+. [Attributes: First Edition]

Steward was included in Gertrude Stein's literary circle in the 1930s, became involved with Dr. Kinsey in the 1950s, worked as a tattoo artist through the 1960s and also became a gay porn writer as Phil Andros (among others)He spent his final years in Chicago.

        Posledovanie na den' s[via]tyia Paskhi i na vsiu svetluiu sedmitsu [=Order for the Holy Day of Easter and for the whole of Easter week]. Kiev, Pechersk Lavra (Monastery of the Caves), [ca. 1801]. 8vo in 4s (18.5×11.5 cm). Easter liturgy in Old Church Slavonic, with title-page and about 20 other pages printed in red and black, the title in a woodcut border and with a woodcut Paschal lamb, a full-page engraving of Jesus's Resurrection on the back of the title-page, and all pages after the title-page with borders made up of 4 woodcut strips. Set in 3 sizes of Old Slavonic poluustav cyrillic type. Printed on laid paper with a blue-green cast. Contemporary gold-panel-stamped and gold-tooled calf by the Kiev Monastery of the Caves, with a panel stamp of Jesus on the front board and a panel stamp of Maria on the back, gilt edges.

      For the Kiev bindery: S. A. Klepikov, "Historical notes on Ukrainian bookbinding", in: The book collector, 15 (1966), pp. 135-142. A Russian Orthodox service book for Easter and the week following it, in the Old Church Slavonic language, printed, published and bound at the Pechersk Lavra (Monastery of the Caves) in Kiev. The monastery was established in the 11th century. After the fall of Constantinople in 1453 the Orthodox Churches in Russia and Ukraine developed independently. The power of the Czars allowed the Russian Orthodox Church to dominate, so that the Ukrainian Church came under the Moscow Patriarchate in 1686. The Monastery of the Caves is therefore now Ukrainian Orthodox, but fell under the authority of the Russian Orthodox Church when the present service book was published. It nevertheless had its own traditions and rites, so that the present book should be regarded as part of the Ukrainian heritage.The only other copy we have located is at Amsterdam University Library, one of three Easter service books by the Kiev Pechersk Lavra recorded on WorldCat, all octavos. With a lengthy cyrillic inscription on an endleaf. The sewing is somewhat loose and as a result a few leaves are tattered at the edges. There are occasional minor smudges and drops of candle wax. Much of the gold-tooling has rubbed off the binding and the spine is slightly damaged. In spite of these minor defects, the book is in good condition, especially for a book of this nature.

Avec les observations faites en l'Isle de Sainte Helene ...Paris, Jean Baptiste Coignard, 1679. 12mo in 6s. With each page in a frame of thin rules, 4 woodcut decorated initials (2 series of the same size), a decoration made up of 2 vine-leaf fleurons on the title-page, 12 abstract (rather than pictorial) zodiac signs, and numerous letterpress tables. Contemporary French sprinkled calf, gold-tooled spine and board edges.

      Armitage, Edmond Halley, (1966), pp. 31-32; Cook, Edmond Halley: charting the heavens and the seas (1997), p. 78; DSB VI, pp. 67-72. Rare first French edition of the first major work by Edmond Halley (1656-1742) translated from the Latin by the astronomer Augustin Royer. A precocious child, Halley became assistant to John Flamsteed at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich in 1675. In 1676 he travelled to the remote South Atlantic island Saint Helena in order to set up an observatory where he set up a more than 7-metre telescope and a sextant with a radius of more than 1 1/2 metres (with telescopic sights) on the top of a 680 metre hill there and map the stars of the southern hemisphere, still not well known in Europe. He also observed a transit of Mercury. On his return to England in 1678, at the age of 22, he published his important observations in the first (Latin) edition of the present work, Catalogus stellarum Australium, sive supplementum catalogi Tychonici, London, 1678. It was a pioneering work not only because it covered the southern hemisphere, but because it was the first printed star catalogue to give telescopically determined positions. According to Cook, the present French translation was published as a supplement to Royer's Carte du ciel, also published in 1679, which covered only stars observable from Europe. Also in 1678 Halley drew up a planisphere, and the Royal Society, impressed by both, elected him as a fellow. Halley, astronomer, geophysicist, mathematician, meteorologist and physicist, was one of the most innovative thinkers of his day, bringing theory and practice together. He is best known as an early adherent of Newton's idea that comets following the same laws as planets, and he correctly concluded that at least some followed elliptical orbits, while Newton had favoured parabolic paths. By computing their orbits from contemporary and historical accounts he successfully predicted the 1758 return of the one now known as Halley's comet.Although Cook calls for an accompanying planisphere, it and a plate with four figures rarely appear as part of the book, whether in the Latin or the French edition, and the book itself does not call for either. They appear to have been separate publications, sometimes found accompanying the book. The hollowed boards of the present binding may have been intended to hold them as loosely inserted folded additions (there is no sign that anything was ever attached). The Earl of Maccelsfield's copy, with his 1860 armorial bookplate, and his embossed stamp on the title-page and 2 following leaves. The second Earl of the second creation, George Parker (ca. 1697-1764) was a leading astronomer and president of the Royal Society. In good condition. With a chip at the top of spine and the inges worn. First French edition of Edmond Halley's first major work.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2 pp on one 8vo sheet of "The Century Association" stationery, New York City, Feb. 9, 1966

      - He writes to Leon Edel, Henry James biographer. "May I intrude upon your scholarship if it extends to Henry James senior. I want to use a quotation which F. O. Matthiessen gives partially on p. 13 of 'The James Family' and I have no idea where to find it. Matthiessen writes, 'probably James best-known remark is that "to a right-minded man" a crowded horse-car is "the nearest approach to heaven upon earth"." Evans explains he seeks the exact quotation noting that, "F. O. M. does not give a hint of his source.knowing your erudition I do hope you may have in mind.do not take down any books yourself for my quest. I'll do that." He signs in full, "Walker Evans." Evans found the actual quote and used it in his photographic portraits of New York City riders titled, "Many Are Called." The correct quote reads: "To a right-minded man, a crowded Cambridge horse car is the nearest approach to heaven upon earth." [Walker Evans, "A Penitent Spy," Rathbone, 2000]. Evans had left his post as editor of Fortune Magazine in 1965 and joined the faculty of Yale University. In 1966, the year of this letter, his photographic study of New York City subway riders was published. "Many Are Called," (1938-41) was photographed with hidden camera, first published almost 30 a after the images were captured, and reissued in 2004. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Piano Concerto (1965 -- 1966)

      Folio (15" X 20"). Stiff brown manila wrappers with brown cloth tape spine and matching outer edges. 190pp. Very good. Quite minor edgewear to outer wrappers (only); mild age toning to text block. Tight and attractive and exceptionally unusual copy of this orchestral piece, being the dedicatee's personal copy. This "edition" is a facsimile of Wuorinen's complete handwritten score, likely produced in only a handful of copies. The piece was commissioned by James Dixon, conductor of the University of Iowa Orchestra, who conducted the premiere performance with Wuorinen himself as soloist in May 1966. The title page bears a printed "to James Dixon" at the top, and below his printed name, Wuorinen boldly inscribes it in pencil "For James, with deepest appreciation / and gratitude. / Charles." Below this, Dixon adds in pencil, "Premiere Iowa City / May 1966 / Recorded Royal Philharmonic / London / Sept 9, 1968." Dixon's extensive pencilled notes, additions, corrections and so on appear throughout the entire score -- an intriguing insight into the conductor's creative process, and almost certainly accomplished with input from the composer himself. CHARLES WUORINEN (born 1938) is one of America's most prolific and versatile composers, the youngest ever to be awarded for Pulitzer Prize for Music (for "Time's Encomium," 1970). JAMES DIXON (1929-2007) was a well-known Iowa orchestra conductor and music educator. A choice copy: The dedicatee’s personal copy of a working score, used in the premiere performance and inscribed by its Pulitzer Prize-winning composer.
