        ARCHIVE OF FIREWORKS LABELS from India, China, Macau, Japan, and America

      various: various, 1970. Good. We offer a large archive of fireworks labels dating to the 1970s, including 175+ labels collected from various manufacturers and countries, mostly India and China, but with a few from Japan and even America. The archive is contained in two binders labeled "FIREWORKS LABELS ALBUM NO. 3" (containing 82 labels mostly of Indian origin), and "FIREWORKS LABELS ALBUM NO 4." (99 labels, mostly of Chinese/Macau origin with a few from Japan and America). The archive was collected in the 1970s (presumably by someone in the fireworks business), and placed in old photograph albums with the "magnetic glue" format which has unfortunately transferred to the backs of many of the labels, and in some cases is visible on the front of the labels. We've left the labels in the albums as is, partly because there are some penciled notes on some pages indicating a date or (in album 4) "PGII CONV" presumably for the Pyrotechnics Guide annual conventions. They are easily removable, but we feel the choice of what storage to transfer them to was best left to the next owner. Label artwork ranges from very ornate to very plain. Names are as varied as the marketers could make them - and the graphics vary from beautiful girls (as often on the Indian labels) to "American themes" reflecting the marketing target. The names are as creative as the images and evoke their use: "Mines", "Aerial Colored Flares", "Flower pots", "Flash Ray Gun", "Crackers", "Square Bombs", "V-2 Rocket, "Neptune Rocket", "Cable Car", "Electric Sparklers", "Flaming Torches", etc. These labels represent a wonderful piece of American Cultural History and conjure images of kids with family, bright smiles and loud booms on the 4th of July, a uniquely American phenomena. The fact that someone collected these is a boon. By definition after the BOOM, the rest of the packaging isn't very useful to most. And some of the labels in Album #4 show the results os use (with occasional charring). Checking various online auction sites, we find labels selling from a few dollars for modern labels to many hundreds for earlier ones. A more detailed listing is available upon request to interested buyers. A highly visual collection, this archive would provide a nice basis for a larger collection in the area.

        Autograph letter, signed, to Geoffrey Elborn.

      1970 1970 - 3pp. on two sheets, with envelope. Letter written by David Jones while he recovered from a stroke and a broken hip at the Bethania Nursing Home in Highgate. Although aware that, as he says, "nothing is so tedious as other people's complaints," Jones nonetheless details his injuries to excuse his delay in writing. He then responds to Elborn's search for a special edition of Jones's epic poem, In Parenthesis, signed by Jones and T. S. Eliot, who had written the Introduction. Jones also reflects on his illustrations in Eliot's A Cultivation of Christmas Trees. He considered them a disappointment, as the lithographs were very different from the original watercolors. He laments, "Most of my work is ridiculously difficult to reproduce anyway, but these suffered more than most." Letter is creased from placement in the envelope, with some slight additional creasing and spotting. Includes original addressed envelope, showing some soiling. Fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Znuz is Znees, Memoirs of a Magician [ 4 Volume Set ].

      Privately Printed for C. F. Russell 1970 - 1974, NP - Hardcovers. 4 Volume Set. Quartos. (11ins x 9ins) Decorated paper covered boards. Vol. I (1970) (iv) + vi + 162pp, Vol. II, (1970) approx. 104pp: numbered xv - xx + 162 - 261), Vol. III (1972) approx 260pp: (numbered xxi-xxvii + numbered 262 -516). Vol. IV (1974) vi +44pp. (NP) Somewhat eccentric design and production values: the volumes are illustrated with a variety of diagrams, charts, photos etc., thrown together in a bizarre collage, and the work is part autobiography, part mathematical study, part study of Chinese mysticism, etc. etc. C. F. Russell (1897-1987), was for a time a star student of Aleister Crowley's, and went on to found the G.'.B.'.G.'. & the Choronzon Club. During the latter half of his life Russell became increasingly involved with the use of mathematics and geometry as occult and mystical tools, and experimented with the concise expression of these complex formulas through what he referred to as the "Ming dialect" of Chinese. Russell apparently suppressed the First Edition of Vol. I of "Znuz is Znees", which is seldom seen - this set has the Second Edition - as do most. The fourth volume of the set: "Znuz is Znees, Memoirs of a Magician, Pierre Fermat Vindicated" which, as the title suggests, was largely mathematical, was not released until 1982, that is a decade after Vol. III, and it is often not included in set. Vol. I has some fraying to the lower edges and lower spine and a bit at upper spine, boards quite faded and with discoloured patches and spots at extreme edges. Vol. II: Spine sunfaded, and with an abrasion to the front pastedown from the removal of a bookseller's sticker; Vol. III, Spine lightly faded, a little discoloration and a hint of foxing to the endpapers; Vol. IV Fine condition. Small bookseller's stickers at bottom of front endpapers of Vols. I and III. Some light shelf rubbing and dust, a little discolouration and spotting to page edges. Internally clean and tight, otherwise all VG+ condition but for the faults described. (no dust jackets, none issued) Vol. 1, 2nd Edition Revised and Enlarged, other Vols. First Editions.

        Stephen Hickman: early original illustration, Musketeer,1970

      no publisher, 1970 Stephen Hickman, 1970. Original illustration, by some accounts prior to the start of his professional career. Image area 11" x 8 3/4". Black matted at 14 3/4" x 12 1/4". Pen and ink on illustration board; Fine condition. Annotations on the back, including the remark "inside front", have the look of a layout editor's comments, indicating possible publication somewhere, though his for-pay career as an artist, by conventional record, started in 1972 when he began to illustrate for T-shirts in Maryland - and then went on to become one of the great sci-fi and fantasy artists of the past three decades. Provenance contact provided to purchaser. This is a picture of a Musketeer in mid-combat, thrusting his sword outward at the viewer (see scan), as might have been done for a men's adventure magazine. Whether he was amateur or professional at the time - a piece of collectible value. L-lng2

        The Bluest Eye

      New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1970 First edition, first printing. Signed by Morrison on the title page. Publisher's gray boards over blue cloth, lettered in silver; in the original white dust jacket designed by Herb Lubalin and Jay Tribich, lettered in blue and gray. Very good, with light soiling and minor bowing to the boards, light spotting to the page edges, former owner's inscription to the front free endpaper, minor pencil marginalia on the preface, otherwise bright and clean pages; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, light toning to the spine and front panel, bright and clean panels. Overall, a tight and very good copy, signed by the author. In The Bluest Eye, the author's first novel, Toni Morrison tells the story of Pecola Breedlove, an eleven year old African-American girl, who, convinced by those around her that she is ugly, longs for "the bluest eye" so as to be considered beautiful. After being raped and impregnated by her father, Pecola loses her prematurely born child and slips into insanity. As the dust jacket cautions: "It's not only a black story, it's a very very dark one." Interestingly, Morrison introduces the novel by summarizing the plot and explaining, "There is really nothing more to say- except why. But since why is difficult to handle, one must take refuge in how." Although it has been censored for its controversial subject matter and graphic scenes, The Bluest Eye was an immediate critical success and won the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Literature.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        Bounce Girl

      Cameo 1970 - DEAN and GERDA KOONTZ - BOUNCE GIRL (subsequently reprinted as "APHRODISIAC GIRL"), published by Cameo #8059, copyright 19709, First Printing (and only printing under this title). This book is one of a number of 30 or so books that Dean Koontz wrote for Cameo books early in his career under various pennames (like Linda Mitchell or Gracie Amber). This book is the ONLY book that he actually published under his own name. Dean Koontz has since disavowed and otherwise denied having ever written the other such books (besides this book which was published under his own name and the Leonard Chris book "Hung"), but the evidence is undisputable: The Library of Congress confirms that Gerda Ann Koontz (Dean's wife) holds the copyrights to this book. "Gracie" is one of the five names listed in the dedication of the gothic romance "Demon Child" (which Koontz wrote under the penname of Deanna Dwyer). All five of the first names listed in the dedication of "Demon Child" have turned out to be pseudonyms that Dean had used for this particular "Adult" literature. In an article written by Dean Koontz entitled "Dean's Drive" in the sci-fi fanzine Energumen #8 (6/71), Dean Koontz admitted to writing 30 of these books in 1970 (including "Share The Warm Flesh" - this book), along with Pig Society and The Underground Lifestyles Handbook (both of which were also published by the same publisher, Cameo books in 1970). One of the titles that Dean Koontz admits to having written ("Thirteen and Ready") was written under the penname of Ann Griffin. In an early sci-fi fanzine, Beabohema #8 (1970), Dean Koontz again talked about writing these books. The authors initials (A.G.) are simply Dean's wife's initials in reverse. One of the Ann Griffin cameo books "Protest Ball," lists the author's address as Harrisburg, Pennsylviania (where Dean and his wife were living in 1970). Finally, in Dean Koontz's writing how-to book "How to Write Popular Fiction" (1972), he refers to these books and specifically to the Ann Griffin penname. THIS IS ONE OF THE FIVE OR SO 'HOLY GRAILS' OF DEAN KOONTZ COLLECTIBLES. Book has no vertical spine creasing (ever so faint stress mark only), no spine lean, faint crease to bottom right corner, no rounding to cover corners, no inventory remainder "cut" mark along bottom edge, no sun age darkening to spine, no former owner markings or used bookstore markings inside (used bookstore price written at top left on front cover), no missing pages, no creased page corners, pages are flat and tight, pages & inside covers are age yellowing at edges, slight edge wear, usual color rubbing wear to covers. Overall a VG/VG+ book of this rare 1970s Dean Koontz book. I have a number of other U.S. and U.K. Dean Koontz 1st printing hardcover/ paperback/magazine appearances up for sale.

        Sometimes a Great Notion

      Universal City: Universal Studios. 1970. Gay's screenplay based on Kesey's second novel, after One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but his first novel to be brought to the screen. The novel concerns the Stamper family, an independent, sometimes ornery group of Oregon loggers. The film was directed by Paul Newman and starred Newman, Henry Fonda and Lee Remick, and it has fallen into undeserved obscurity: it was nominated for two Academy Awards and many consider it one of the last great performances of Fonda's career. This is labeled "Second Draft Screenplay," dated by hand February 10, 1970, with the name of legendary Hollywood editor Dede Allen written on the front cover (Allen is not credited on the film). Bradbound in studio wrappers; a bit dusty, but near fine. First Edition. Softcover.
