        Lives of Girls & Women [1st Printing w/ Signed Bookplate Laid In]

      McLelland & Stewart, Toronto 1971 - 1st printing of the first Canadian hardcover edition of the author's second book and only novel. LAID IN and not affixed to a page is a 3 x 4" bookplate SIGNED by Munro in black ink. A lovely copy of a scarce book which is truly rare autographed. The book is square and tight, and the jacket is well-preserved and not priced, as issued. The fore-edges of the paper, the edges of the creme-coloured boards, the paste-downs and endpapers are tanned, which is typical of the first edition. The bottom corner of the front board is bruised, and the bottom corner of the back board is rubbed. There is a stray pen mark (red) at the heel of the book's spine and a small tea-coloured stain on the bottom page edges. There are no previous owner's markings. Tanning to the off-white sections of the jacket is uniform with no difference between the spine and the panels. Minor shelf wear to the dark sections of the jacket. The heel and crown of the jacket's spine show wear and tears. There are no losses. There is similar but less wear to the edges of the jacket at the hinges and one short closed tear to the top edge of the back panel. The flaps are crisp with sharp corners. The signed bookplate (laid in) is made with an adhesive on the reverse side which is activated with moisture. Canada's most highly-decorated writer, Munro was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013 and cited as "a master of the contemporary short story." She won the Man Booker International Prize in 2009. She has won Canada's Giller Prize twice and the Governor General's Literary Award for Fiction three times: Dance of the Happy Shades (1968), Who Do You Think You Are? (1978) and The Progress of Love (1986). Since the 1960s, her stories have been published regularly in The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly and The Paris Review. Note to Collectors: never an avid signer, when Munro completed the publicity tour for The Love of A Good Woman in 1998, she announced that she would no longer make public appearances to autograph books. Now age 85, she has retired from writing. Also available from this bookseller is a Canadian hardcover first of Runaway signed by Munro on the title page and a Canadian first of her third book, Something I've Been Meaning to Tell You, with a signed plate laid in. Canadian orders will be charged GST. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Satirix. La Revue Qu'on Ne Jette Pas... Mensuel Humoristique. No. 1 (October 1971) through No. 25 (January/February 1976) (all published)

      A complete run in 25 issues (each issue approx. 16 pp.) of the humorous French satirical journal meant to rekindle the spirit of L'Assiette au Beurre, the early twentieth-century political and satirical magazine, edited by Lucien Grand-Jouan, with each issue devoted to the work of a single illustrator or cartoonist and a single topic, with each issue having a separate subtitle. Profusely illustrated with brightly-colored and black-and-white illustrations, very little text throughout. Small folio. Orig. colorful illustrated wrpps. Some very minor small tears and soiling. Paris 1971-1976. Together with a kiosk poster for issue no. 14. Satirix was seized by the Ministry of the Interior in 1973 after the publication of issue no. 23 which contained caricatures of various political figures including Nixon, Pompidou, and Pope Paul VI. Publication was paused for two years while the trial against the magazine took place. Even though Grand-Jouan won the battle in court, he was not able to successfully start publication back up again, and the journal's run ended two issues later, with no. 25. The artists whose work is featured in each issue are as follows: Jean Sennep (two issues), Jean Effel, Albert Dubout (two issues), Siné, Barbe, Moisan, Claude Serre (two issues), François Solo (two issues), Vazquez de Sola (two issues), Laville, Fernando Puig Rosado, Cardon, Tetsu, Michel Longuet, Pino Zac (two issues), Albert Mignard, César, Vitou, and Kaher. As of August 2017, WorldCat locates five holdings in North American institutions.

Limited edition of 100 copies, this no. 48, SIGNED BY CLAIRE VAN VLIET. Note this work is presented as unbound sheets, with the lithographs printed on the same paper as the text. Claire Van Vliet (b. 1933), the artist for this book, is also the founder of The Janus Press which she started in San Diego in 1955. Van Vliet chose "Janus" as the name for her Press based on the ancient Roman god Janus, who looked both forward and backward and therefore stood for balance. Franz Kafka (1883-1924) has been called "the Dante of the 20th century" and Nabokov placed him among the greatest writers of that century. His writings often feature isolated protagonists faced by bizarre or surrealistic predicaments and incomprehensible social-bureaucratic powers, from which has arisen the term, "Kafkaesque" (N.B., info on author from Wiki). This short story an excerpt from "The Penal Colony", per a note on the copyright page. ***DESCRIPTION: Unbound sheets, ten signatures total, eight full-page lithographs by Claire Van Vlient with tissue guards, the lithographs printed directly from the stones drawn by the artist (with no printing on the reverse side of the page containing the lithographs); folio size (approximately 12.75" tall), 12 printed leaves total, text Monotype Times New Roman, printed letterpress, paper Zerkall Butten; limited edition of 100 copies, this no. 48.

        Großformat!!! Französisches orginal Werbeplakat James Bond - Les Diamants sont Eternels (Diamonds are forever) i

      Size: 63 x 47 inches = 160 x 119 cm!!!! Diamonds Are Forever (1971) is the seventh spy film in the James Bond series by Eon Productions, and the sixth and final Eon film to star Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The film is based on Ian Fleming's 1956 novel of the same name, and is the second of four James Bond films directed by Guy Hamilton. The story has Bond impersonating a diamond smuggler to infiltrate a smuggling ring, and soon uncovering a plot by his old nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld to use the diamonds to build a giant laser. Bond has to battle his nemesis for one last time, in order to stop the smuggling and stall Blofeld's plan of destroying Washington DC, and extorting the world with nuclear supremacy. After George Lazenby left the franchise, producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli tested other actors, but studio United Artists wanted Sean Connery back, paying a then-record 1.25 million salary for him to return. The producers were inspired by Goldfinger, eventually hiring that film's director, Guy Hamilton. Locations included Las Vegas, California, Amsterdam and Lufthansa's hangar in Germany. Diamonds Are Forever was a commercial success, but received criticism for its humorous camp tone. --- Les diamants sont éternels (Diamonds Are Forever) est un film britannique réalisé par Guy Hamilton et sorti en 1971. C'est le 7e opus de la série des films de James Bond produite par Harry Saltzman et Albert R. Broccoli, par l'intermédiaire de leur société EON Productions. Sean Connery incarne James Bond pour la dernière fois pour EON Productions. Il reviendra cependant en 1983 dans Jamais plus jamais, produit par une autre société. Les diamants sont éternels est l'adaptation cinématographique du roman éponyme de Ian Fleming paru en 1956 et également connu en France sous le titre Chauds les Glaçons !.

      New York: Harper & Row, 1971 - SENDAK (Maurice): Where The Wild Things Are. Complete Set of FOUR Fine Art Color Prints from the artist's Caldecott Medal Award Classic WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE (1963), these prints were manufactured in 1971 as part of a series of 19 images selected from eight different titles by Mr Sendak and newly re-photographed from the original artwork to create a PORTFOLIO. Each print is SIGNED IN FULL in ink by the artist at the lower right corner of the image. And whereas in the book these separate pictures are reproduced as double-page spreads divided in the middle and printed on two separate pages with a center crease, here each picture is now printed for the first time on a single sheet of paper. The actual image size of the first three prints measure 235 x 515 mm (9-1/4 x 20-3/16 inches) while the fourth print image measures 163 x 510 mm (6-7/16 x 20-1/8 inches), each with extra margins on larger paper. Minor handling creases, otherwise very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Kenbak-1. Prototype of the first personal stored-program computer

      1971. KENBAK-1. (1) Prototype Kenbak-1 computer built by its inventor, John Blankenbaker (b. 1929). Comprises motherboard with 132 integrated circuits, 2 power supplies, 2 MOS shift registers (1024 bits each) and cooling fan, in customized steel case with 3-prong power connector, the front panel with a toggle power switch, 12 incandescent lights, 15 pushbuttons and various lettering including the name "KENBAK-1." Approximately 490 x 292 x 110 mm. Preserved in a foam-padded protective instrument case. (2) Binder of documentation including Programming Reference Manual KENBAK-1 Computer (Los Angeles: KENBAK, 1971; iii, 24pp.); "Installation & maintenance" (photocopy; 8pp.); "Theory of operation" (photocopy; 9-42, 26pp.); original coding sheets, mimeographed purchase guides, reviews, stationery, etc. (3) Laboratory exercises KENBAK-1 computer. Variously paginated. Los Angeles: KENBAK, 1971. Original wrappers, spiral-bound. (4) Advertisement for the KENBAK-1 computer. In Scientific American 224, no. 3 (September 1971): 194. Whole number, in original printed wrappers. The prototype of the KENBAK-1, the world's first commercially available stored-program personal computer, so deemed in 1987 by a panel of judges, including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, at the Computer Museum in Boston.The stored program concept, in which both program and data are processed in an electronic memory, was the key concept in the design of the electronic computer as theorized by John von Neumann in the so-called von Neumann architecture. Because the Kenbak-1 was the first personal computer to apply this key concept in its design, it is an especially important landmark in the history of computing. Only about 40 or 50 of these machines were ever built; of which perhaps ten remain extant. The KENBAK-1, invented by computer engineer John Blankenbaker, went on sale in 1971, five years before the Apple 1. This prototype model of the KENBAK-1 is the very one used in the first demonstration of a commercial personal computer, which took place in May 1971 at an Anaheim, California convention of high school mathematics teachers. This unit was still operational in July 2015. "[The KENBAK-1] was created in 1971 by John Blankenbaker, working in his garage in Los Angeles. Initial sales commenced in September of 1971. It was intended to be educational and the professionals in the field were enthusiastic but it was a struggle to convince the non-professionals that they could buy a real computer at this price ($750), thus only some 40 devices were sold, mainly to schools. "The creator of Kenbak-1-John Blankenbaker, had a long experience in the field of computers. He started the design of a computing device as early as in the winter of 1949, when he was a 19 y.o. physics freshman at Oregon State College, inspirited by an article in a magazine. After graduation from the college in 1952, he worked at Hughes Aircraft Co. in the department for digital computers, designing the arithmetic unit for a business data processor. Some time in the late 1950s he began to think there could be simple computers which could be afforded by individuals. "As late as in the fall of 1970 he found himself unemployed and decided to investigate what might be done to make a computer for personal use. He wanted the computer to be low cost, educational, and able to give the user satisfaction with simple programs. The computer could be serial and slow which would reduce the cost yet create the environment that was desired. It should demonstrate as many programming concepts as was possible. Because of the small size, the native language of the unit would be the machine language. Above all, it had to be a stored program machine in the von Neumann sense. To keep the costs low, switches and lights were the input and output of the machine. (Some thought was given to punched card input, but it was never developed.) By the spring of 1971, the logic printed circuit board had been built and the computer was assembled. Designed before microprocessors were available, the logic consisted of small and medium scale integrated circuits, mounted on one printed circuit board. MOS shift registers implemented the serial memory. Switches in the front keyed the input and lights displayed the output. The memory was two MOS shift registers, each of 1024 bits. The computer executed several hundred instructions per second" (Dalakov). As noted above, Blankenbaker demonstrated the KENBAK-1 in May 1971 using this prototype. In September 1971 the first advertisement for the machine appeared in the Scientific American, promising potential customers that "very quickly you, or your family or students, can write programs of fun and interest." Blankenbaker intended the computer to be used for educational purposes and so did not make any special effort to market it to hobbyists, an omission he later regretted. Between 40 and 50 commercial units, differing slightly from the prototype, were manufactured and sold between 1971 and 1973, when the company folded. According to Wikipedia, about 10 KENBAK-1 units are now known to exist worldwide. Dalakov, Georgi. "The KENBAK-1 of John Blankenbaker." History of Computers, Computing and Internet. N.p., n.d. Web.
