        One Hundred Years of Solitude.

      New York: Harper & Row, 1970. First American edition of the author's magnum opus. Octavo, original green cloth with gilt lettering to the spine. Inscribed by Gabriel Garcia Marquez on the dedication page. Fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket with only light wear to the extremities. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example of this landmark novel, seldom found inscribed. "One Hundred Years of Solitude chronicles the life of Macondo, a fictional town based in part of Garcia Marquez's hometown of Aracataca, Columbia, 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).

        Hiroshima Now

      Tokyo: Shinya Soshosha, 1970. One page creased due to a publication flaw, some light foxing to the edges; almost a near fine copy in a near fine jacket with the instantly recognizable photograph a plane's landing gear with a gray Hiroshima spread out in the distance.. First Edition. Square quarto. SIGNED by the photographer in Japanese. Essay in English by Tadanori Yokoo. "Comment" by Hideo Nakai. Black and white images of latesixties Hiroshima, mostly dispassionate street scenes and snippets of daily life, with a few medical zingers interspersed throughout. Sometimes photobooks with ostensibly banal shots can appear painfully artistic (the Dusseldorf photographers come to mind), but in this book the spare image of a rainy Hiroshima street, or a solitary man at a ramen counter, has a perverse, almost hypnotic power.

        Walkabout (Original screenplay for the 1971 film)

      London: Max L. Raab / Si Litvinoff Productions, 1970. Draft script for the 1971 film. After working for nearly a year to untangle the rights first assigned to director Richard Lester to direct the film, producer Litvinoff gained legal control of the property and had Nicholas Roeg and playwright Edward Bond rewrite the adaptation completely. Roeg directed the film in the Australian Outback in 1969, and the finished work was released in 1971. Today the film is considered a late masterpiece of poetic realism, informed by Roeg's attention to detail and psychedelic approach to visual storytelling. Pale green studio wrappers, with credits for producers Raab and Litvinoff. Title page present, with credits for story writers Roeg and Bond, screenwriter Bond, novelist Marshall, and producers Raab and Litvinoff. 68 leaves, mechanically reproduced. Pages about Fine, wrapper Very Good plus bound internally with two silver brads. Criterion Collection 10.

        Six Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm (D)

      1970. HOCKNEY, David. Six Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm. Unpaginated. Illustrated with an etched frontispiece and 38 etchings (12 of which are full-page), plus a portfolio of 6 signed etchings. Folio, 460 x 315 mm, bound in original blue full calf, in matching slipcase. London: Petersburg Press, 1970. |~||~||~||~| A fine copy of one of the finest post-war illustrated books. Hockney not only produced the illustrations, but he was closely involved with the typography and layout. The result is a particularly harmonious book. Hockney claims that he was both inspired and bewildered by the strange and wonderful fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm: "They're fascinating, the little stories, told in a very simple, direct, straightforward language and style; it was this simplicity that attracted me. They cover quite a strange range of experience, from the magical to the moral. My choice of stories was occasionally influenced by how I might illustrate them. For example, Old Rinkrank was included because the story begins with the sentence, 'A King built a glass mountain' I loved the idea of finding how you draw a glass mountain; it was a little graphic problem. I included other stories simply because they were strange" (Hockney by Hockney, 1976, p. 195). His etchings for "The Little Sea Hare," "Fundevogel," "Rapunzel," "The Boy who left Home to Learn Fear," "Old Rinkrank," and "Rumpelstilzchen," are justly celebrated as being among his most inventive and imaginative works on paper. One of 100 copies of Edition A, from a total edition of 400 copies. From Manet to Hockney 146.

        An original backstage pass used by Jimi Hendrix's longtime friend and Woodstock rhythm guitarist, Larry Lee, during a concert in Memphis, Tennessee in June 1970: the last time the pair met before Hendrix's death in September

      [Memphis, Tennessee], [June 9, 1970]. 4.25" x 2.5". "A 4.25"" x 2.5"" card bearing a color image of the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis, Tennessee endorsed ""OK"" in black-felt tip on the verso and signed by an unidentified member of Hendrix's road crew or one of the show's promoters, that admitted Lawrence ""Larry"" Lee (1943-2007) backstage for Jimi Hendrix's June 9, 1970 performance there. Moderate creases and soiling, else very good condition. In a 2005 interview with John McDermott of Guitar World, Lee spoke of what would be his final meeting: ""When he came to Memphis, we met backstage. We hadn't been in contact since I had left [in September 1969]. He had a Gibson Flying V and was playing some blues with it. He played a few of his things on it and asked if I liked it. I really did and asked him to play that guitar that night, and he told me he would. So he started the show with the Flying V, but it didn't seem to move the crowd all that much. But when he put that guitar down and grabbed the Fender and played 'Foxey Lady,' it was a whole new deal. The crowd went wild. I would have never asked him to grab that Gibson no more, you know, because that Fender and 'Foxey Lady' was what they wanted, and he gave it to them. You gotta please the people."" Lawrence ""Larry"" Lee was a student at Tennessee State University, writing songs for Stax records on the side, when he first encountered Hendrix with Billy Cox at the Del Morocco, a Nashville nightclub. At first Lee thought Hendrix to be ""the worst guitar player I had ever heard."" (John McDermott, Interview with Larry Lee, Guitar World, October 2005) Looking for someone to practice with, Lee thought Hendrix a perfect fit: ""I was just happy I wasn't the worst guitar player in Nashville."" As it turned out, Hendrix had been playing a very mediocre guitar and even worse amplifier. Lee encountered Hendrix a few weeks later and was thunderstruck. Jimi had acquired a new guitar, ""and man did he surprise me! His ideas were different from other players-but he was good! Once he got that guitar, he was always great."" The pair played together with Joe Fisher and the Barnevilles and other acts (including the King Kasuals with Billy Cox). In late 1963, the pair parted: Jimi for the East Coast and Lee was drafted into the Army and spent some time in Vietnam where he was wounded. Lee hadn't been discharged for more than two weeks in mid July-1969 when he received a call from Billy Cox asking him to come and play with him and Jimi who was then forming a new group to replace the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Lee accepted the invitation, and he, together with Cox on bass, Mitch Mitchell on drums, Juma Sultan on percussion and Jerry Velez on congas, formed The Gypsy Sun & Rainbows. They spent the balance of July and early August rehearsing at an eight-bedroom house that Hendrix's management had rented for him for the summer near Shokan, New York and most famously performed at Woodstock on August 18, 1969. The combo only performed again live once, at a street festival in Harlem in September 1969 before disbanding. The same month, Lee left New York for Memphis where he established himself as a session guitarist and band director, most notably for Al Green's touring band appearing on Johnny Carson and television specials worldwide. Provenance: Lawrence Lee 1943-2007; Lee Family; Sotheby's, New York, December 17, 1991, Lot 461A. The stash bag was part of a larger collection of Hendrix memorabilia obtained by Lee during the 1960s. Images and copies of the other pieces in the collection are included for reference."

        ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE. Translated From the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa

      New York: Harper & Row, (1970). First American edition. Hardcover. A fine copy, with green and yellow headband, in a near fine dust jacket with minor creasing to the top of the rear panel) and minor nicks at extremities. A superior copy. 2nd issue jacket (w/o "!." the author's masterwork. The multi-generational story of the Buendia family (seven generations). Garcia Marquez popularized a literary style called magic realism, which uses magical elements and events in otherwise ordinary and realistic situations. This special copy bears the ownership signature of K.S. Wilgus, the wife of Dr. A Curtis Wilgus, who served as professor of Latin American history at the University of Florida. He authored many articles and books on Latin American and was appointed by President Kennedy to the board of foreign scholarships as coordinator in the Office of Inter-American Affairs. Tipped into this copy is the printed card of Jose Guillermo Castillo, which is inscribed by him "con complements" / muy afectionos y / printed name / personales / Jose." Castillo, while acting director of the Literature Program of the Inter-American Foundation For the Arts, formed a committee to facilitate and guarantee the translation cycle of Latin-American authors translated into English. One of the translators on his committee was Gregory Rabassa. Ten years after being funded, the Literature Program had already sponsored the translation of more than 45 books, most of them written by "almost every major Latin American author to become known in this country," starting promisingly with this book, by Garcia Marquez (translated by Gregory Rabassa). He received many awards in his lifetime (1927-2014) including the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982. This novel topped the list of books that have most shaped world literature over the last 25 years according to a survey of international writers commissioned by the global literary journal, Wasafiri (Sept 25, 2009), as a part of its 25th-anniversary celebration.

        The Memoirs of …

      Chilham, Kent: For the author,, 1970. being his experiences in World Wars I and II, together with some other matters. For the Westropp family records. Octavo. Original full sheep, red morocco label, edges sprinkled red, black endpapers. Westropp armorial bookplate mounted on the front pastedown. First and only edition, limited to 50 signed and numbered copies, this number 9 of the first 10 which were bound in leather, this copy with personal inscription; "To Cupid [Colonel A. W. Valentine C.B.E., D.S.O.] In remembrance of some amusing and not so amusing occasions" Westropp served with Valentine in the Devons in WWI. Inevitably uncommon, Copac has BL, King's and IWM only, OCLC adds copies at the universities of Calgary, Kansas and Nebraska. Extraordinary life-story of a genuinely extraordinary man. "The bearing of Monty Westropp in situations of extreme peril when the spirits of many around him were downcast is graphically epitomised in the recollections of the Canadian historian Walter Lord in his book The Miracle of Dunkirk: ''The long shadow of tradition was now very much in evidence. When Colonel Lionel H. M. Westropp ordered the 8th King's Own Royal Regiment to head down the beach towards the mole he first assembled his officers. He reminded them that they wore the badge of one of the oldest regiments of the line. 'We therefore will represent the regiment as we march down the beach this afternoon. We must not let it down …' As Lord recalls, the battalion set off in perfect step, arms swinging in unison, rifles correctly slung and in immaculate marching order. It was a sight which put fresh heart into the many fearfully battered and demoralised units who witnessed it" (obituary, The Times 5 February, 1991). Commissioned into the Devonshire Regiment in April 1915, within a year he was commanding a company at the Battle of the Somme, all of his senior officers having been killed; "Many brave men cracked but Westropp never flinched from even the most appalling decisions. On one occasion a major in an adjacent unit was fleeing, terrified, to the rear and causing general panic among the soldiers around him. Without hesitation Westropp, then a mere 2nd lieutenant, drew his pistol and brought the officer down. Westropp then called his sergeant major to him, and together they reformed their shaken company and turned their faces towards the enemy in front". In the rear rest areas he became notorious for "performing energetic Cossack dances on restaurant tables, accompanied by his Russian girlfriend, Olga". Between the wars a spell in India allowed him to indulge his passion for polo and tiger and boar hunting, he also distinguished himself as an army fencer. From 1933 to 1936 he commanded the army's anti-gas unit, and compiled the relevant manuals, and in 1939 he raised a new battalion of the 8th King's Own, leading it as part of the BEF during the Blitzkrieg and through Dunkirk. He was later on Malta, where during the siege his battalion became known as "Westropp's Own", "So complete was his identification with it". He survived a torpedo attack off the coast of Tunisia, subsequently serving on the staff for the invasion of Sicily, but "turned down a later offer of staff training, quite correctly believing his métier to be that of regimental soldiering. Indeed, in spite of a sometimes alarming demeanour, he inspired intense loyalty among all ranks under him … Above all his attitudes to life were influenced by his having survived the First World War when virtually all his school friends and regimental colleagues perished".
