        Watercolour drawing of a European, a Redimoesoe and several Maroon people in the Surinam jungle].[Surinam?, ca. 1805-1815]. Pencil, pen, wash and watercolour on wove paper (43.5 x 55.5 cm), in a passe-partout (58.5 x 69 cm).

      - On the Redimoesoe: De Groot, "Rebellie der Zwarte Jagers", in: De Gids CXXXIII (1970), pp. 291-303. High-quality watercolour drawing of an early 19th century scene at an unidentified location, probably in what was then the Dutch colony of Surinam. It shows a European man, armed with a sabre and a pistol, pointing with a cane to a dark-skinned man dressed in short trousers and a red cap. They are surrounded by several dark-skinned Maroons: runaway African slaves or their native descendants, who settled in remote jungle regions and often came into conflict with the colonial authorities. The man with the red cap is dressed as a member of the Black Rangers, a Dutch army corps composed of black slaves, which had been formed in 1772 to fight bands of runaway slaves. The rangers were a fierce fighting force, each of them said to be worth six Dutch soldiers, and nicknamed the Redimoesoes, due to the red caps they wore until 1815. In 1805, one year into a period of British rule, a detachment of Redimoesoes rebelled and fled to join the Maroon people of the Ndyuka and Aluku (Boni). The drawing may depict an event during this episode or its aftermath, as most of the figures appear to be members of one of the Maroon peoples. The large chests in the lower right could suggest some sort of trade, but whether the Redimoesoe is a part of this trade or is simply a background extra, is unclear. With a few tears at the edges repaired with tape; sheet lightly crumbled in the middle.

        Down Home With The Bailem County Kids

      N.p.: S.i., [ca.early 1970's]. Paperback. A substantial and compelling work, anonymously-written and set in the fictitious Bailem County, Down Home With The Bailem County Kids is centered around the daily lives and adventures of a group of African-American kids, ranging in age from elementary to lower high school. The creator builds a realistic and detailed world around the characters, fusing elements reminiscent of Peanuts, The Little Rascals, Fat Albert, Archie, and Good Times. The fictitious setting comes across clearly as economically depressed, and the language used by the characters slips between being cogent and what one of the characters describes as "a Harlem Ghetto Accent." Prominent among the recurring characters are Bitty Beans and her best friend Dolly Stevens, friends Edith, Shirley, and Mablishka, along with boys Booful and Jim Bradshaw. The storyboards, in addition to chronicling the characters' daily lives and hijinks, deal with deeper issues and themes of African-American identity, class, prejudice, physical appearance, love, underage drinking, and corporal punishment. Violence, while dealt with in a light-hearted manner, is a recurring theme in each of the 11 stories, which involved Dolly Stevens doling out black eyes or getting others into fights. The most curious and visually dazzling story is "Zit the Magnificent," a 38-page tale composed in full color, involving a talking dog who performs with a traveling circus comprised of all Black performers. While authorship for this volume and place of publication are unattributed, given the recurring female characters, nature of their dialogue, and attention to detail regarding their style of dress, we suspect the cartoonist was a young woman, possibly high school or college-aged. In several stories, repeated references are made to traveling to or visiting "Rockston"; it is possible the city referenced is the town of Roxton, Texas (formerly Rockston or Rockstown), located some 18 miles southwest of Paris in Lamar County. Quarto (35.5cm); sketchbook bound in full black faux-leather; [232]pp. Fully-used, but for 20pp; inconsistently paginated by the artist, the volume contains 11 individually titled cartoon strips, composed in ballpoint pen, graphite, and colored felt-tipped marker, and told across 1,461 consecutively numbered panels. Spine, hinges, and right board edges reinforced with masking tape, some wear along upper and lower board edges, with some occasional shallow staining to text edges, none compromising legibility; Very Good+.

        The Beatles: "Let it Be" (Original poster for the 1970 film documentary)

      Apple Corps / United Artists, London and New York 1970 - Original one sheet poster for the 1970 film documentary.Some have claimed that "Metallica: Some Kind of Monster" (2004) was the first documentary to inadvertently document the deconstruction of a rock band, but Michael Lindsay-Hogg beat them to it by 34 years. "Let It Be," originally conceived as a documentary that would accompany a performance broadcast on television, morphed into a feature film when the broadcast idea was dropped. The director had no idea going into the project how much conflict had developed within the band, and unwittingly wound up putting onto celluloid a picture of what was the most acrimonious and confused time in the band's storied 6-year career. A fascinating document that became the fascinating final project to be released by The Beatles.27 x 41 inches (105 x 89 cm). Folded, Near Fine.

        One Hundred Years of Solitude.

      Harper & Row, Publishers, New York 1970 - First American edition of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's magnum opus. Octavo, original green cloth with gilt lettering to the spine. Translated from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa. Inscribed and dated by Gabriel Garcia Marquez in 1981 (the year he won the Nobel Prize in literature) on the dedication page. Also signed by the translator Gregory Rabassa with the added opening sentence from this novel, "Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice. Gregory Rabassa." Fine in a very good first issue dust jacket with a few closed tears and wear to the extremities. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. "One Hundred Years of Solitude chronicles the life of Macondo, a fictional town based in part of Garcia Marquez's hometown of Aracataca, Colombia, and seven generations of the founding family, the Buendias. He creates a complex world with characters and events that display the full range of human experience. For the reader, the pleasure of the novel derives from its fast-paced narrative, humor, vivid characters, and fantasy elements. In this 'magic realism', the author combines imaginative flights of fancy with social realism to give us images of levitating priests, flying carpets, a four-year-long rainstorm, and a young woman ascending to heaven while folding sheets" (NYPL Books of the Century 31).
