      London: Jonathan Cape. (1970). The uncorrected proof copy of the first British edition of his masterwork, a powerful fictional memoir of his experiences during the Allied fire-bombing of Dresden, Germany. On all three major lists of the top books of the 20th century. Creased, stained, abraded; good in wrappers. Scarce: while it is not known how many copies of this proof were prepared, the bibliographers report that only 39 copies of the proof of the American edition were done, and it is reasonable to suppose that there would not have been more copies done in the U.K. than in the U.S. The last copy we handled was in 1998. . First Edition. Softcover.

        The Pregnant Widow

      Jonathan Cape, 2010. 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. UK First Edition, First Printing. SIGNED to the title page. Description: It was summer 1970 - a long, hot summer. In a castle in Italy, half a dozen young lives are afloat on the sea of change, trapped inside the history of the sexual revolution. The girls are acting like boys, and the boys are going on acting like boys, and Keith Nearing - twenty years old, a literature student all clogged up with the English novel - is struggling to twist feminism and the rise of women towards his own ends. The sexual revolution may have been a velvet revolution (in at least two senses), but it wasn't bloodless - and now, in the twenty-first century, the year 1970 finally catches up with Keith Nearing. "The Pregnant Widow" is a comedy of manners and a nightmare, brilliant, haunting and gloriously risque.

        John Cage (First Edition, inscribed to Ellsworth Snyder in 1971)

      New York: Praeger, 1970. First Edition. First Edition. INSCRIBED by Cage in 1971 to Ellsworth Snyder: "for Ellsworth Snyder, / with admiration and friendship / John Cage, Madison '71." & & Ellsworth Snyder and Cage were longtime friends. Snyder performed the composer's work on many occasions, perhaps most infamously at Cage's much-protested 1965 appearance at the University of Illinois: "At one point [Snyder] crawled under the piano, made a show of carefully marking a precise point on the under-body of the instrument with a tape measure, then hit that spot with a mallet. Even more provocative for that particular audience, he had planted a loose piano string in the instrument, and after striking an unusually percussive chord he slowly pulled the ostensibly broken string out of the piano. By this time the audience was screaming and throwing objects at the stage." (Johanne Rivest, In Advance of the Avant Garde: John Cage at the University of Illinois, 1952-69,1999). & & Snyder contributes to this volume the essay, "Chronological Table of John Cage's Life." Additionally, he is particularly thanked by editor Kostelanetz for his help in assembling the bibliographic sections at the end of the book.

      NL: Octopus Foundation. Amsterdam, Octopus Fondation, 1970. Hardback (assumed) first edition and first impression. The book / catalogue is concealed within a metal fuel tin. The tin was intended to be opened using a tin opener. This copy is unopened and thus we are unable to view the actual catalogue. The tin itself is in excellent condition with a couple of light knocks and we assume some level of degrading to the top which appears a bit rusty. A very presentable and sought after item. The catalogue contains background material, production design, drawings, music notation, photographs and other works that were utilised in the theatre production from which this item originates. There are also poems by Lucebert. Very interesting item. Also provided is a theatre programme. . Fine. No Binding. 1st Edition. 1970.
