        The Objectivist, Volumes 1-10 Complete (with accompanying publications)

      New York: The Objectivist, 1971. This is a complete run of Ayn Rand's publication The Objectivist, volumes 1-10, January 1962 through September 1971 (when it ceased publication). This set consists two parts. --THE FIRST PART is a bound volume of The Objectivist Newsletter, Vols. 1-4, 1962-1965, second printing, 1971. This volume is in fine condition with light age toning to exterior text block. Interior pages are clean and unmarked. After Volume 4 the publication's format changed from newsletter style to magazine style and became simply "The Objectivist." --THE SECOND PART is a complete run of The Objectivist, volumes 5-10, in original softcover form in wraps. These are all in fine condition, clean and unmarked, except for an old rubber band mark on the front or back cover of 3 issues. *** Also included in this set are several publications in original wraps, corresponding in size and format to The Objectivist. These include: 1) "The Intellectual Bankruptcy of Our Age," by Ayn Rand. Lecture first delivered by Ayn Rand at the Ford Hall Forum, Boston, on March 26, 1961, and at Hunter College, University of North Carolina, Johns Hopkins University, Brooklyn College, and Brown University, on various dates in 1961-1962. Published by The Objectivist. 2) "Playboy's Interview with Ayn Rand," interview by Alvin Toffler, originally published in Playboy in March 1964 and reprinted by The Objectivist. 3) "Global Balkanization," by Ayn Rand, lecture delivered at The Ford Hall Forum, Boston, on April 10, 1977.

This publication was a new series begun after Rand had discontinued her own. ~~ This complete set forms a valuable representation of Rand's philosophical theories--which included rational egoism, individual rights, and laissez-faire capitalism--set in the context of the time it was published. Each issue contains an article written by Rand. Frequent contributors include Leonard Peikoff and Nathaniel Branden, with other contributors as well, including two articles by Alan Greenspan, an early ardent supporter of Rand. Greenspan's article entitled "Gold and Economic Freedom," discusses the role of gold and the gold standard in a free society. In the last issue, Rand delivers her last essay, entitled "Brief Summary," in which she comments on her theory and its progress, and in which she makes her famous remark: "The monster is Immanuel Kant." Since then it has been argued that she misunderstood Kant. Rand ceased publication of The Objectivist in order to return to a more personal newsletter called "The Ayn Rand Letter." ~~ Each of the two parts in this set as I have described them can also be purchased separately. Please see my separate listings for each. All inquiries will be answered promptly.. Soft Cover. Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

        [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). .

One photo shows the exterior, the rest is of the interior of the Synagogue and Cultural Center in Tel-Aviv. Photographs with captions in English and Hebrew. "In Eternal Memory: This building was built in Memory of the Jewish Communities in China by Igud Yotzei Sin in Israel. The construction of the building was possible thanks to the Administrator General and Official receiver of the State of Israel, who handed over the proceeds received from the sale of the Synagogue in Shanghai and through the generous donations from the former residents of China in Israel and all over the world. The building was set thanks to the great devotion extended by the President of the Building Committee, Mr. M. A. Zaigraeff. The inauguration of the skeleton of the building took place on the 20th August 1959. The inauguration of the opening of the building took place on 6th September 1961. Architects & Building plans: Mr. G. Rabinovitch, Mr. A. Kahane, Aron Kodesh." In 1951 a group of Jewish leaders from several communities of former China residents in Israel founded "Igud Olei Sin", which was later changed to "Igud Yotsei Sin." Small sticker of S. Sanzetti Photo Studio on inside of rear board. Minor age toning on title-page and on margin of card stock. Near fine condition. Unique copy.

        Original lithographed poster: Venti anni di lotta per abbattere la dittatura - Bandiere rosse contro il fascismo ["Twenty years of struggle against dictatorship - Red Flags Against Fascism!"]

      Partito Comunista Italiano / Editoriali Fratelli Spada Roma: Partito Comunista Italiano / Editoriali Fratelli Spada, 1971. First Edition. Lithographed poster (offset) in three colors; 100cm x 70cm (ca 40" x 28"); on heavy paper. Minor toning; light creases at margins; Near Fine - Grade A/A-. A bit of a puzzle: the poster appears to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the formation of the Associazione Bandiera Rossa, an Italian Trotskyist group; but the poster bears the imprint of the PCI, the main-line Marxist-Leninist party in Italy -- an ideological implausibility, even within the chaotic confines of Italian Marxism. Adding further to the confusion is a quotation from Antonio Gramsci (founder of the PCI) in upper right. In any case, a terrific graphic, attributed here to Luciano Prati (whose name we encounter on a few late-70s Italian film posters, but nowhere else). Duke University appears to be the only North American institution to hold a catalogued copy of this work.

        BANANAS. [Untitled Film Script]

      New York: Hart Stenographic Bureau, 1971 Allen, Woody [Mickey Rose]. BANANAS. Untitled Film Script. 4to., 66 leaves. New York: Hart Stenographic Bureau, n.d. [1971]. Bound into red two hole duo tang style covers with Hart Bureau address information gilt stamped on the upper cover. Original script in Untitled State mimeographed on rectos only in near fine or better condition. Fielding Mellish (Woody Allen) is a neurotic blue collar man who tries to impress social activist Nancy (Louise Lasser). Trying to get in touch with the San Marcos revolution, he visits the fictional South American country, or "banana republic," attempting to show his concern for the native people. However, nearly killed by the local caudillo, only to be saved by the revolutionaries, he is then indebted to help them. Mellish clumsily learns how to be a revolutionary. When the revolution is successful, the Castro-style leader goes mad, forcing the rebels to place Mellish as their President. When traveling back to the U.S. to obtain financial aid, he reunites with his activist ex-girlfriend and is exposed. In a classic courtroom scene, Mellish tries to defend himself from a series of incriminating witnesses. He is eventually sentenced to prison, but his sentence is suspended on the condition that he doesn't move into the judge's neighborhood. Nancy then agrees to marry him. The between-the-covers consummation of their marriage -- an event that was over much more quickly than Nancy had anticipated -- was announced "play by play" by Howard Cosell. Parts of the plot were based on the book Don Quixote, U.S.A. by Richard P. Powell. It was filmed on location in New York City, Lima (Peru), and various locations in Puerto Rico, including San Juan, Carolina and Loiza. This film is number 78 on Bravo's "100 Funniest Movies". - Wikipedia. Unsigned Film Script. 1st Edition.

        Louisiana Heron. From "The Birds of America" (Amsterdam Edition) [Pl. 217]

      Amsterdam and New York: Johnson Reprint Corporation and Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, 1971-72. Colour-printed lithograph, on fine hand-made paper. Excellent condition. 20 1/2 x 25 inches. 26 3/4 x 39 7/8 inches (approx). In October 1971, employing the most faithful printing method available, the best materials and the ablest craftsmen of their age, the Amsterdam firm of Theatrum Orbis Terrarum Ltd., in conjunction with the Johnson Reprint Corporation of New York, set out to produce the finest possible limited edition facsimile of the greatest bird book ever printed: the Havell edition of John James Audubon's well-loved "Birds of America". The Curators of the Teyler's Museum in Haarlem, Holland made their copy of the original work available for use as a model. The Museum, founded in 1778, bought their copy through Audubon's son as part of the original subscription in 1839. After long deliberation, the extremely complex but highly accurate process of colour photo-lithography was chosen as the appropriate printing method. The best exponents of this art were the renowned Dutch printing firm of NV Fotolitho Inrichting Drommel at Zandvoort who were willing to undertake the task of printing each plate in up to eight different colours. The original Havell edition was published on hand-made rag paper and the publishers were determined that the paper of their edition should match the original. Unhappy with the commercially available papers, they turned to the traditional paper manufacturers G. Schut & Zonen (founded in 1625), who, using 100% unbleached cotton rags, were able to produce a wove paper of the highest quality, with each sheet bearing a watermark unique to the edition: G. Schut & Zonen [JR monogram] Audubon [OT monogram]. The publishers and their dedicated team completed their task late in 1972 and the results of these labours were affectionately known as the "Amsterdam Audubon." 250 copies were published and sold by subscription, with the plates available bound or unbound. Given all this careful preparation, it is not surprising that the prints have the look and feel of the original Havell edition. John James Audubon was born in Les Cayes, Haiti on 26 April 1785. From 1788 to 1803 he lived in France until he was sent to the United States to manage an estate that his father had bought in Pennsylvania. He returned to France in 1805, but his fascination with the United States had taken root and he returned again in May 1806. He married Lucy Bakewell in 1808 and together they embarked on a difficult period financially that was only to be resolved, through Audubon's unshakable and justified belief in his own abilities, with the publication of his masterpiece in 1827-1838. "The Birds of America" is the single greatest ornithological work ever produced and is the realization of Audubon's dream of traveling throughout the United States recording, natural size, every native bird then known. The 435 double-elephant folio sized plates, printed by the Havells of London, depict some 1,065 different species, the majority drawn from specimens that Audubon himself had captured. The Havell edition was expensive at the time of publication and this has not changed. Possibly the last complete copy which will ever appear on the market sold for a staggering $8,802,500 in a sale in New York in March 2000. Currently, the increasingly rare individual plates from this edition, when they do appear, generally sell for between $5,000 and $175,000 depending on the image. The quality of the Amsterdam Audubon plates is apparent to any discerning collector and it is becoming ever clearer that they offer the most attractive alternative to the Havell edition plates, given the latter's spiraling prices.
