        One Hundred Years of Solitude; Innocent Erendira; In Evil Hour; Chronicle of a Death Foretold; The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor; Clandestine in Chile; Love in the Time of Cholera. . .

      NY and Bogota: Harper & Row, Knopf, LEC, Grupo Editorial Norma (1968-2005). - Gabriel Garcia Marquez Collection. 16 First editions all INSCRIBED: No One Writes to the An outstanding collection of 16 first editions of the Nobel Laureate all variously INSCRIBED to the collector, Richard Mattie by Garcia Marquez. No One Writes to the Colonel and Other Stories; One Hundred Years of Solitude; Innocent Erendira; In Evil Hour; Chronicle of a Death Foretold; The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor; Clandestine in Chile; Love in the Time of Cholera; The General in His Labyrinth; Strange Pilgrims; Love and Other Demons; News of a Kidnapping; Living to Tell the Tale; Memories of My Melancholy Whores; Vivir para contarla; One Hundred Years of Solitude LEC. This collection was put together by the highly resourceful Richard Mattie between the years of 1997 and 2005 with the assistance of a number of contacts in Mexico who had close connection with Garcia Marquez. All 16 books are personally inscribed to Mattie by Garcia Marquez, and, noteworthy, the copy of the LEC of One Hundred Years of Solitude is inscribed in English, "To Richard, from his Friend." and is signed and dated 1998. Garcia Marquez rarely inscribed in English. Mattie said that Garcia Marquez commented that this was the first time he signed this book. All the books are first American editions with the exception of Vivir para cotarla which is the true first in Spanish, the Columbian edition published by Grupo Editorial Norma, Bogota, 2002. As every serious Garcia Marquez collectors fully knows, there are a great many highly suspect "signed" Garcia Marquez books on the internet and purchasing any without impeccable, serious provenance is a risky venture at best. Mattie was so diligent in his documentation that he kept every letter, fax, postal receipt, wire, and email (all printed out fully) from this close to 9 year difficult collecting venture. This 1" thick folder, entitled by Mattie "The Gabriel Garcia Marquez File 1997-2005" is included with this collection. Never have I seen such minutely detailed provenance. As a collection of inscribed Garcia Marquez titles in English translation, this is as close to a sine qua non statement as a contemporary collector might hope to come. All the books From Chronicle of a Death Foretold forward through Memories of My Melancholy Whores are tight, fine books in bright, fine DJs with the exception of Strange Pilgrims which has slight cloth discoloration at the base of the book. No One Writes to the Colonel has a partial name erasure top of the front free endpaper and some top edge foxing, else very good plus in a bright first issue DJ with a minuscule closed tear bottom of front panel else fine. One Hundred Years of Solitude is the first edition book in the second issue DJ with a period end of the first front flap paragraph. There is a small contemporary inscription dated 1970 top of the half-title page in Spanish. The book has light cloth wear at the extremities else tight, near fine in a bright, price intact ($7.95) DJ with small fold tears top of front panel near the spinal gutter and at the base of spine (given the floral pattern, these are not very noticeable) with some clear tape reinforcements verso.

        Screenplay]: MASH

      Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation and Aspen Productions 1968 - Screenplay. Quarto. 141pp. Brandbound in printed blue studio wrappers marked "Final Screenplay." Title page is present and notes: "Final February 26, 1969." General wear to the extremities, mostly at the yapped foredge which has multiple creases, near fine. The Academy Award-winning screenplay for the black comedy *MASH* written by Ring Lardner, Jr. and based on Richard Hooker's novel of the same name, which followed a group of doctors stationed with a mobile army hospital during the Korean War. The film was directed by Robert Altman and starred Elliott Gould and Donald Sutherland as surgeons negotiating the absurdities of war, which resonated with audiences during its release at the height of the Vietnam conflict. Though it was a difficult production with apparent friction between Altman, Lardner and many of the actors, the final film was an instant classic and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture and awarded the Palme d'Or at Cannes.

        Vánocní Betlém [Bethlehem Christmas].

      (1968). An uncommon die-cut pop-up card depicting a nativity scene set in ancient Bethlehem, beneath palm trees and a starry night sky. Cattle, goats, sheep, and an elephant surround the manger, as the magi and others bring gifts. Presiding over the scene is an angel carrying a banner proclaiming "Gloria in Excelsis Deo." Kubasta's clever technique interlocks two brightly-colored accordion-fold illustrations to create a three-dimensional panorama. Two additional interlocking pieces with cherubs, lambs, and a Christmas tree are designed to be placed in front of the display. In a recent New York Times feature on Kubasta, paper engineer Robert Sabuda, who was inspired by Kubasta's books at an early age, described Kubasta's work as unusual in that he was able to create astonishingly complex, detailed scenes with a single sheet of paper. His pop-up books are also known for their bold, rich color and were printed in Czechoslovakia on special pre-war presses at the state-run publishing house Artia. Measures approximately six inches (15cm) tall. Angel's wings are slightly bent, else a fine example of Kubasta's creative work.

        L'espace littéraire

      New pocket-sized edition, review copy. Touching and valuable autograph signed by the author to his sister Marguerite: "To my dearest sister, Marguerite, this book, premises may be" the end of the book "with tender apology MB." Marguerite Blanchot, renowned organist Chalon Cathedral, remained all his life in the family home with his mother and aunt. "It will gradually become, for the family, as the memory of origins." Very close to Maurice, she regularly corresponded with the writer who reflects him great recognition for his dedication to their helpless mother. If intense affection Blanchot for his mother and his sister shines in dedications of it, we know almost nothing of their relationship. In the only biographical essay on Blanchot, Christophe Bident reveals, however: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot worshiped his brother very proud of him, (...) it attached great importance to his political ideas (...) She read a lot (.... .) They phoned corresponded. A distance, they shared the same natural authority, the same concern for discretion. " Blanchot address him indeed many books from his library, now with her continuous intellectual link. Nice copy. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! Gallimard Paris 1968 11x16,5cm broché

The film followed a group of aging outlaws after a robbery gone bad, struggling to reach the Mexican border with bounty hunters on their trail and who are forced to make a final stand in a small village. The film signaled a late career resurgence for actor William Holden and was noted for its unflinching portrayal of indiscriminate violence, reflecting the growing conflict in Vietnam. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for best original screenplay and the film has since become an acknowledged classic of American cinema. .

        [Screenplay]: The Wild Bunch

      Warner Bros. - Seven Arts Inc.. 1968. Screenplay. Quarto. 128pp. Brandbound in printed goldenrod studio wrappers with "Final" noted on the front wrap and white, blue, and pink interior pages. Distribution page (with receipt intact) and title page both present; marked "2/7/68" and "Change 2/12/68." General wear with a couple of spots, bumping and small tear at the edges of the wraps, very good or better. The screenplay for Sam Peckinpah Western revisionist classic The Wild Bunch released in 1969 to much critical and popular praise. The film followed a group of aging outlaws after a robbery gone bad, struggling to reach the Mexican border with bounty hunters on their trail and who are forced to make a final stand in a small village. The film signaled a late career resurgence for actor William Holden and was noted for its unflinching portrayal of indiscriminate violence, reflecting the growing conflict in Vietnam. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for best original screenplay and the film has since become an acknowledged classic of American cinema. .

        Archive of Yippie, New York Provo and other Downtown Protest Mimeographs

      Various 1968-1970 - Fifty-three items, mostly typed mimeographed quarto sheets, some with mimeographs of hand-drawn "hippie" drawings. Altogether, documents the activities of the nascent Yippie movement and its anarchist sympathizers, especially the "New York Provo" (also called the "Downtown Poor") and the Free Store movement, often with support of the "Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers". The archive tracks the be-ins, smoke-ins, free concerts and other activities that culminated with the "Festival of Life," an "international youth festival" to be held in Chicago parallel to the 1968 Democratic Convention organized by Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman, Anita Hoffman, Nancy Kurshan, Paul Krassner, and others. The YIP's total rejection of political process and governmental legitimacy included marijuana smoke-ins at public places as well as the establishment of an alternative FDA dedicated to the free distribution of food and drugs, a concept tested at "Free Stores" in the East Village and Alphabet City. Through an appropriation of bigotry at midtown "Hate Parades" and a strength in numbers approach to defiance of drug enforcement laws, the YIPs and Provo posed a palatable threat to the political elite gathering in Chicago for the Democratic convention. The mimeographed sheets, quickly and cheaply printed, created an alternative press, a sort of downtown Twitter, often printed in both English and Spanish in an attempt to also speak to Alphabet City's large Puerto Rican and Dominican population. The Yippie's contempt for the mainstream press motivated them to communicate directly to their supporters, circumventing traditional media while also maintaining a paranoid anonymous voice. Of the New York Provo mimeographs, only two are attributed, "Cops eat? flowers", and a lengthy, 13 page letter, both by George Metesky, a pseudonym adopted by the Diggers. Overall, a fascinating textual and visual documentation of radical political actions, especially leading up to the contested convention in Chicago. The total archive contains fourteen Yippie related items, thirteen Provo New York related items, seven Free Store related items, and an additional twenty items of related interest, including a mimeograph by Ed Sanders, a mimeograph by "Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers", and several music related handbills for acts including the Fugs, The Holy Model Rounders, Richie Havens, Phil Ochs, and a large "Sound-Out" festival near Woodstock. Some examples show considerable wear, overall good to near fine.
