        La Provence. Voyage d'étude *

      École d'Art (Appliqué), La Chaux-de-Fonds (9.1971). - En feuilles 35 x 27, portefeuille pleine toile de lin ocre à triple rabattant, dos muet, étui de même facture. Dans le prolongement de la si jolie formule de Maurice Barraud, ces "Notes et croquis de voyages" résultent d'une virée d'étude des élèves de classe terminale. A leur retour ils choisissent parmi les matériaux récoltés et gravent en diverses techniques enseignées dans l'école l'une ou l'autre composition qui prendront place dans un somptueux album vendu au profit de la cuvée suivante, cette formule de voyage étant ainsi financée par les aînés pour leurs successeurs depuis 1969. Florence inaugura cette série bisanuelle, suivi de Bruges, Rome, La Bretagne et Venise.Si cette livraison, consacrée à ce doux pays de lavande et de littérature, compte 28 (et non pas 25 comme annoncé) planches gravées, titre non signé compris, elle n'en recèle pas moins de 30 estampes. Les techniques n'y sont cette fois pas précisées mais l'amateur averti reconnaîtra l'eau-forte, la pointe sèche, l'aquatinte, le burin et une fois n'est pas coutume le bois gravé (ou le lino ?); deux de ces dernières, légendées par Mistral Et Daudet, sont remarquables. La plupart sont situées: Aigues-Mortes, Les Antiques, Arles, Les Baux, Grau-du-Roi, Montmajour et le Pont du Gard.Belle et touchante réalisation artisanale, oeuvre d'art et de camaraderie. Édition originale. L'un des 40 exemplaires numérotés du tirage total.

        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)

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1971. First edition of this classic work on high-risk investment for maximum profit, including the Loeb Checklist for managing stocks. Octavo, original boards. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper. Books signed by Gerald Loeb are rare. Gerald M. Loeb was a founding partner of E.F. 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. .

CHAMPLAIN, Samuel de, French navigator, born in Brouage, Saintonge, on the bay of Biscay, in 1567 ; died in Quebec, 25 Dec., 1635. His father was a ship-captain, and the son received a careful education as a navigator. Early in life he entered the army and became quartermaster of cavalry. 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. . About his Voyage: The expedition was called France on Francois Grave De Pont expedition.In 1609 he led 32 colonists to settle in Quebec, but only nine survived the first bitter winter. On his voyage he started a fight with the Indians that lasted 500 years with his country.The voyage lasted until September 5, 1635.On his voyage he found a lake and named it Lake Chaplain in 1609.

        [Screenplay]: The Godfather: Screenplay by Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola

      New York: Paramount Pictures. 1971. Original screenplay. Third draft. Dated March 29, 1971 (the date principal photography began). 143pp. Unbound mimeographed sheets printed rectos only, with related material. A script used by the studio to prepare the television version, this is accompanied by 1) a four page mimeographed memo marked: "Master Copy -- Showing Actual Changes Made", apparently intended to make the film televisable, for instance: "21' - Caan balls wedding guest against bedroom door - pick up scene as Duvall knocks on door, Caan and girl are then in freeze position - continue scene (with girl's off camera 'Oh Sonny!' but WITHOUT the orgasmic moans and sighs) after Caan says he will join Duvall in a minute. (Recommended cuts will be made) (Also after cuts made 'Oh Sonny' didn't make sense and Coppola agreed to cut)." Also: "31' - greatest piece of ass I've ever had. (Cut 'ass' only) (Changed to 'greatest piece of stuff')." Also with 2) Single photocopied sheet printed recto only of Coppola's introduction to the film indicating, in part: "I was pleased to have the opportunity to personally supervise the revisions, working with NBC so that this film could be viewed on television." Slight age-toning and light wear at the extremities, paperclips on the pages where changes have been made with pencil notes, else a near fine copy. The bestselling novel was made into one of the most acclaimed blockbuster films, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and featuring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, and many others. The Godfather was first nationally broadcast on NBC in November, 1974, a month before the theatrical debut of the equally acclaimed The Godfather: Part II. In 1977 a more elaborate, chronological portrayal of the Corleone epic (combining this film, its sequel, and numerous cut scenes) was edited and televised as The Godfather Saga (reportedly in order to raise funds for Coppola's Apocalypse Now). .

        Photographic and Actual Works: February 23-April 4, 1971

      Detroit: Detroit Institute of the Arts, 1971. First printing. Paperback. Fine. (29) pp., oblong 4to. Stapled into illustrated self-wrappers. Edition size unknown. Unrecorded catalogue prepared by Heizer for the initial version of his first museum exhibition, which was famously canceled by the artist just weeks before the opening, due to backtracking on agreements by the board of the Detroit Institute. After heated last-minute negotiation, the exhibition proceeded, with a new name (Actual Size), a month later than originally intended; a revised version of the catalogue was published. This initial version is entirely photographic and contains no text, other than the title lines on the cover, and most likely represents complete control by Heizer of all the aspects of production; in contrast, the version published includes captions and other interpretive text. There is some overlap between the images used in the two versions, but even those images appearing in both versions are differently cropped or placed. In effect, this is an early and almost entirely unknown conceptual photographic artist's book. The only institutional holding on record is that of the Center for Art & Environment of the Nevada Museum of Art; even the librarians at the Detroit Institute of the Arts were unaware of the existence of this version. This copy is in fine condition, and other than trivial soiling and a tiny closed tear at the top of the back cover, is essentially as new.
