EDITOR JOHN BLACKWELL'S COPY WITH HIS INITIALS TO FRONT WRAPPER, AND HIS CORRECTIONS THROUGHOUT.

As well as editing Sharpe, John Blackwell played literary midwife to J. M. Coetzee, Michael Moorcock, Tom McGuane, Malcolm Bradbury and Louis de Bernieres, among many others. His emendations in this, his own copy, are made in red ink, and are mostly typographical and grammatical corrections; here and there, deletions have been made in blue.

        Tulsa

      New York: Larry Clark 1971 - First hardcover edition, following the 1971 softcover edition published by Lustrum Press. Signed by the author in black ink on the title page. One of 3,000 copies printed by Rapoport Press under the author's supervision. A near fine copy with only slight rubbing to the spine head and tail, crisp and fresh pages, with the author's order form loosely inserted into the front of the text, in the original dust jacket with wear and minor tearing to the spine head and tail, very slight rubbing on the corners. Although this book predates his iconic films by at least two decades, "Tulsa" is quintessential Clark. Ever interested by teenage subcultures, Clark chooses young amphetamine users in his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, as his subject matter for this book and includes 50 black and white photographs that examine their daily lives. Like many of his other works, Clark presents a dynamic portrayal of troubled teens, juxtaposing their youthful innocence and dark lifestyles, reminding the reader that "Once the needle goes in it never comes out."

A scarce, complete set in collectible condition of Scott's celebrated quartet, set during the concluding years of the British Raj, in four octavo volumes. [10],450,[2]; [8],483,[1]; [10],3-392; [10],3-597,[3]pp. Jewel: Publisher's copper-colored cloth, spine lettered in gilt; pictorial dust jacket, priced 30s. About Fine (dust-soiled top edge, spine toe creased, else tight, bright, clean and strong) and apparently unread in about Near Fine jacket (spine panel lightly faded, with tips briefly worn). Scorpion: Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in gilt; pictorial dust jacket, priced 42s. Fine, in Near Fine jacket, very lightly edge-worn, with short closed tear along back flap fold. Towers: Publisher's navy-blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt; pictorial dust jacket priced £2.75.

Spoils: Publisher's chestnut-brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt; pictorial dust jacket priced £4.90. Fine (save for previous owner's inscription in a neat hand on front fly leaf), in Fine jacket. Scott's "painstakingly researched Quartet which examines the lives of ordinary Anglo-Indians against the background of the end of Empire [the five years from the Quit India campaign of the Congress Committee to Indian independence, in 1947]. These novels constitute Scott's principal claim to be regarded as a major post-war writer [The Times, in fact, called Scott's quartet "one of the most important landmarks of post-war fiction."] . . . . The Quartet is still perhaps underestimated as an analysis of the pre-Independence roots of the racism Salman Rushdie identified in the 1980s under the label 'the New Empire within Britain.' Scott sacrificed his life to the writing of the Quartet, becoming something of a monomaniacal recluse with tendencies toward alcoholism and occasional domestic violence. His death from cancer, in 1978, in London came at the time his work was just beginning to be appreciated." (The Literary Encyclopedia) TN. B.

Written at a time when his author's wife was dying in a hospital in new Jersey, and partly inspired by a woman who had disappeared at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument while Abbey was a ranger there; this lyrical novel of love in the grand canyon echoes the author's feelings at that time and is unlike anything else he published.

        Ahrens-Fox: A pictorial tribute to a great name in fire apparatus by Robert Sams and John F. Sytsma by Robert Sams and John F. Sytsma

      Self-Published. SPIRAL-BOUND. Light cover wear. Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. Illustrated with many black-and-white photographs. Approx. 175 pp. (unpaginated). From the Foreword: Ahrens-Fox fans are legion in number and take second place to no other group of apparatus fanciers in their admiration and esteem for their favorite fire rigs. In view of the ardent interest in this fire engine manufacturer and its products it may seem strange that no one has as yet marketed a book on the subject, especially since it's safe to say that a good many Ahrens-Fox admirers have at one time or other considered that idea. After the lengthy period of time and effort expended in gathering material for this - what we believe is the first Ahrens-Fox book to see the light of day - we can easily see why no one has as yet outdistanced us in producing such a volume. Small wonder that other budding authors have become discouraged, in view of the scarcity of definitive information available to them on the subject of Ahrens-Fox. The tangled financial affairs and various merger manipulations of the latter years of this once flourishing industrial concern do not readily lend themselves as a source of accurate facts to be used in the composition of such a volume, but probably the most discouraging factor to the would-be author is the reluctance of the very few people who possess accurate information to share their knowledge with the many hundreds of Ahrens-Fox "buffs" who have long awaited a book on their favorite fire engine. You will note that the undersigned have chosen not to designate themselves as authors of this volume. Rather we prefer to be known as editors who have undertaken to assemble the collection of facts, anecdotes, and photographs found herein. We would be misrepresenting our book if we claimed for it the lofty pretension of being a definitive history. Yet it is something more than just a collection of photographs, for we believe that we have unearthed at least a few facts on Ahrens-Fox that have not attained wide circulation. At the same time we've assembled a series of short essays on this all-time favorite fire fighting apparatus that, while admittedly reflecting our own personal opinions, and those of other Ahrens-Fox enthusiasts, we hope will also shed some light on the rise and fall of this intriguing company that built the great front-mounted piston pumpers. Your order will be on its way by the next business day! . Very Good. 1971.

        The Battle for Stock Market Profits (Not the Way It's Taught at Harvard Business School)

Hutton, a renowned and successful Wall Street trader, and the author of the books The Battle For Investment Survival and The Battle For Stock Market Profits. Instead of encouraging diversification, he instead urged investors to commit strongly to one action at a time. According to Loeb, investing all one's resources in a single stock could result in maximized profits, so long as one picked a successful stock or, at least, cut one's losses immediately and moved the remaining assets into another stock that proved more successful.

        [Manuscript]: Hart Cooper

      [1971]. Manuscript. Loose quarto sheets printed with black and blue mimeograph ink. 513pp, and 172pp., plus a two-page list of characters and two copies of an excised chapter. A bit of wear to the corner of the first dozen sheets, near fine. Hart Cooper is the unpublished "spiritual autobiography" written by Thackara, a Los Angeles-based author, in 1971, more than a decade before the publication of his first book in 1984, America's Children. According to the author, Hart Cooper was particularly important in "creating the trans-national mythology" later incorporated into his controversial 1999 novel, The Book of Kings, which is considered, depending on the reviewer, a masterpiece of Western literature or else one of the worst novels ever published. This copy of the manuscript comes from the library of Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, Peter Taylor, whom Thackara met while attending Harvard. Taylor became a mentor to Thackara and the two remained friends until Taylor's death in 1994. An influential unpublished first novel from this highly controversial writer. .

His uncle, acting as pilot-general of the Spanish fleets, conducted back to their own country the Spanish soldiers who had served in France, and was accompanied by his nephew, who took command of the "St. Julien." In January, 1599, he sailed in command of this vessel for the West Indies, and during two years and a half visited many of the islands, landed at Vera Cruz, proceeded inland as far as the city of Mexico, and returned by way of Panama, where he conceived the plan of a ship-canal across the isthmus, reaching Spain in March, 1601. A record of this voyage, with views and charts, was written by him, and was first printed under the title of "Bref discours" (Quebec, 1870), though a translation had been previously printed in the publications of the Hakluyt society. .
