        Ansichten von Heidelberg und Schwetzingen].[Heidelberg?], Charles de Graimberg, ca. 1826 (views dated 1811-1826). Oblong 16mo? (9.5 x 14 cm). With 47 lithographic views of Heidelberg and vicinity (image size 6 x 10 cm), all coloured by a contemporary hand and highlighted with gum arabic, each with a caption with French on the left and German on the right. Contemporary boards.

      - Max Schefold, Alte Ansichten aus Baden (1971), 25427-25430, 25431-25437 (9 of our 33 views of Heidelberg); cf. WorldCat (1 set of 9 similar views); not in Abbey, Travel. Very rare print series, possibly the most extensive set to survive, of some of the earliest lithographic views of Heidelberg, Schwetzingen and vicinity, published and nearly all drawn by Louis Charles François de Graimberg-Belleau (1774-1864). Graimberg was a French royalist nobleman who fled the French Revolution to Germany in 1791 and developed a great love for Schloss Heidelberg for its architectural-historical value and as a symbol of noble culture. The present series gives only his name and seems to correspond closely to the series he published about ten years later, so it appears to be his own edition. Most of the views show the Schloss as it was in Graimberg's time, but a few show it before the fire, based on views by Matthaüs Merian and others. The present set has 33 Heidelberg views followed by 15 Schwetzingen views. The present collection includes four views of the mosque built in the years 1779 to 1795 for Karl Theodor, Elector of the Palatine and Bavaria, situated on his palace grounds in Schwetzingen, a remarkable symbol of religious tolerance in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.With about half the views slightly browned and a tiny marginal chip in the last 2, not approaching the image, but otherwise in very good condition. With a few small tears in the paper covering the boards (mostly at the hinges and the foot of the spine) and somewhat loose in the spine, but the binding is otherwise good. A very rare series of early lithographic views of Heidelberg and vicinity, including the Schwetzingen mosque. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1971. First. Uncorrected proof. Printed yellow wrappers. A couple of small ink squiggles on the front wrap, and overall soiling on the wrappers, a solid, very good copy. Laid in is a Typed Letter Signed from Knopf editor Nina Bourne to author John Cheever sending along the book, and soliciting his opinion, and hopefully, a blurb.

        Baltimore Oriole. From "The Birds of America" (Amsterdam Edition)

      Johnson Reprint Corporation and Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, Amsterdam and New York 1971 - Colour-printed lithograph, on fine hand-made paper. Excellent condition. 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. Cf. Zimmer, p. 22; cf. Bennett, p. 5; cf. Fries, Appendix A; cf. Wood, p. 208; cf. Nissen IVB 51; cf. Sabin 2364; cf. Ripley 13; cf. Tyler, Audubon's Great National Work , 1993, Appendix I.

        Crow Wakes.

      Woodford Green, Essex: printed by Alan Tarling for Poet & Printer,, 1971. Twelve Poems. Small octavo. Original vellum-backed patterned boards, titles to spine and front in black. A fine copy. First edition, first printing, signed and numbered by hughes not once but twice, one of the scarce 100 copies retained by the poet, which seldom come to market. The title page verso is signed "No. 22 Ted Hughes" and the front free endpaper signed and numbered "Ted Hughes 12/88". The printer Alan Tarling informed the bibliographers Sagar and Tabor that "These poems were excluded for personal reasons from [Hughes's] Crow opus . . . There were 200, a hundred each going to poet and printer plus 30 review or academic copies. None of mine was signed and each cost £2.25, though I gave some to friends and relatives. All the 'academic' copies were gratis, and said as much in an extra colophon . . . I don't know how TH's copies were distributed or whether or not they were signed". Hughes had in fact numbered and signed all his copies on the title page verso from 1 to 100, but later apparently overlooked that he had done this and signed what were presumably his remaining copies from 1 to 88 on the front endpapers.

        ALL THE BRIGHT YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN: A Personal History of the Czech Cinema.

(1971). - INSCRIBED TO JIRI AND CHRISTINE VOSKOVEC AND SIGNED BY JOSEF SKVORECKY - Octavo, maroon cloth titled in gilt on the spine in a dust wrapper. The dust jacket is rubbed & the head of its spine is chipped. There is light dampstaning to the bottom corners of the jacket's front panel & flaps. v, [i] & 280 pages. Profuse black-and-white illustrations. There is light dampstaining to the bottom corners of the first few & last few pages. Very good in a good dust wrapper. First editionInscribed by the author in Czech to actor Jiri Voskovec and his wife Christine and signed "Skvorecky Josef / 25.8.72 Toronto". Voskovec is mentioned several times in the book.Jiri [George] Voskovec was born Jiri Wachsmann [1905-1981]. He was a much revered Czech actor and playwright. After World War 1 Voskovec appeared with Jan Werich [1905-1980] as one of a comic duo in the tradition of Laurel and Hardy. "Together with Jaroslav Jezek, the father of Czech jazz, they moulded dadaism, circus, jazz, Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and American vaudeville into a new art form. They created a new form of intellectual political musical." - [Josef Skvorecky: "All the Bright Young Men and Women"]. Having created a sensation with their "Vest Pocket Revue" in April 1927, V + W were invited to join the Devetsil theatre group in May. In 1929 they renamed the group "Liberated Theatre" ["Osvobozene Divadlo"] and they took over every element of the productions. During the 1930s the productions of V + W became increasingly anti-fascist and their "Liberated Theatre" was eventually forced to close in 1938. The following year they fled to the United States. After World War 2 Voskovec settled permanently in the U.S. and Werich returned to Czechoslovakia. Both actors went on to have long careers in film, Voskovec appearing in 72 movies and Werich in more than 50. Four of their stage works were made into films: "Powder and Gasoline" [1931], "Your Money or Your Life" [1932], "Heave-ho" [1934], and "The World Belongs to Us" [1937]. Voskovec is known for his role as Juror #11 in "12 Angry Men".Josef Skvorecky [1914-2012] was a Czech Canadian writer and publisher. He spent half his life in Canada, publishing and supporting banned Czech literature and Czech dissident writers during the Communist era. He was awarded the Neustadt International Prize for Literature in 1980 and was nominated for the Nobel Prize in 1982. His fiction deals with several themes: the horrors of totalitarianism and repression, the expatriate experience, and the miracle of jazz. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        THE SHAY LOCOMOTIVE, TITAN OF THE TIMBER

      Denver: The World Press, Inc., 1971., 1971. First edition. First edition. Quarto. Signed by the author and numbered. This is copy 1638. Maroon cloth, gold stamped decorations on front cover and spine, decorated endpapers, ix [3], 486 pp., frontis. [Richard Ward color painting], foreword, illustrated, six full-color paintings, acknowledgments, bibliography, catalogues, maps and atlases, index. The complete history of the Shay locomotive, built by Lima Machine Works of Ohio. Ephraim Shay reasoned that if a small but powerful locomotive could be built to withstand the punishment of temporary trackage, loggers and lumbermen could tap otherwise inaccessible tracts of timber in any season of the year. The lumber industry was in its hey-day and after several years, Shay developed a unique, gear-driven locomotive with vertical pistons that could pull heavy loads up difficult grades and was simple to repair in the woods. Eventually Shay's locomotives came to be used wherever huge loads had to be moved over rough terrain. They found much use in the mining industry as well. The last Shay locomotive was built in 1945 and many are still in use today. Fine in dust jacket. A handsome book and the last word on the subject.

        Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream

      New York: Random House, 1971 Illustrated by Ralph Steadman. First edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth spine over dark gray boards, Steadman's Raoul Duke illustration to the front cover in blind, spine lettered in metallic silver; original pictorial dust jacket designed by Susan Schwaab, with Steadman's illustration of Duke and Dr. Gonzo driving through the desert, lettered in blue, red, and black. Very good or better, with a touch of sunning to the extremities, faint soiling to the front board, a few minor spots to the page edges, else bright and clean; unclipped dust jacket, with some fading to the spine, a touch of light wear to the spine tail, some very faint soiling to the extremities. Overall, a sturdy and very handsome copy. Originally published in Rolling Stone, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is the author's best known "failed but essentially noble experiment in Gonzo journalism," a literary genre that subjectively blends truth and fiction. The novel tells of the protagonist Raoul Duke and his attorney Dr. Gonzo as they travel on a drug-fueled, wild adventure "into the heart of the American Dream." The plot is loosely based on the author's actual adventures with American attorney and activist Oscar Zeta Acosta and is supplemented with Thompson's reflections on the 1960's counterculture movement. Ralph Steadman's iconic and grotesquely beautiful illustrations animate Thompson's bizarre journey, assisting the reader in picturing the novel's absurd events. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was adapted into a popular film of the same name, starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro, in 1998.. Illus. by Steadman, Ralph. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        Baltimore Oriole. From "The Birds of America" (Amsterdam Edition)

      Amsterdam and New York: Johnson Reprint Corporation and Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, 1971. Colour-printed lithograph, on fine hand-made paper. Excellent condition. 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.Cf. Zimmer, p. 22; cf. Bennett, p. 5; cf. Fries, Appendix A; cf. Wood, p. 208; cf. Nissen IVB 51; cf. Sabin 2364; cf. Ripley 13; cf. Tyler, Audubon's Great National Work , 1993, Appendix I.

        Typed Manuscript for The Singing Knives (MS)

      NP, 1971. First edition. Near Fine. Black card portfolio with central clamp, typed label on the front cover partially removed. Hand-written title page (by the author), thanking his first publisher, Irv Broughton. Some oxidation from the clamp on the written title page (and small spots on the final leaf). Dated in red ink by Stanford on the first poem, "1964" and "1971" on the final one, presumably leaving the poems in chronological order. Title poem (and a few others) with pinpoint holes from a removed staple, signed at the end by Stanford. Two other leaves with authorial edits or comments in red ink. 47 leaves in total (including written title page), comprising 21 poems on type-written sheets and the final two poems (16 leaves) appear to be Xeroxed copies of the typed sheets. The complete original manuscript that was used by Broughton to publish Stanford's ground-breaking first book of poetry. Included is a signed letter of provenance from Broughton. Irv Broughton agreed to publish Stanford's first book of poetry (this one) after meeting him at the Hollins Conference for Creative Writing and Cinema in 1970. Broughton's Mill Mountain Press would then publish a further six works by Stanford, including his masterpiece, "The Battlefield Where the Moon Says I Love You." Broughton had a close personal and professional relationship with the poet, traveling with him for much of 1972 working on a collaborative project where they interviewed and filmed Malcolm Cowley, John Crowe Ransom, and Richard Eberhart. The present manuscript provides a unique opportunity to acquire Stanford's important first book in its authentic, author-typed and annotated state. Near Fine.

        Space and Time Perception by the Cosmonaut

      Moscow: Mir Publishers, 1971. 12mo. 199, [2]pp. Three color plates reproducing Leonov's paintings, one color plate "Some of the visual illusions arising in the weightless condition," and black-and-white diagrams and photos in text. Original pictorial wrappers, the front cover showing a cosmonaut floating in space. An important first-hand account of space exploration and the effects of space travel on medicine from the first person to walk in space. Alexei Leonov made the first extra-vehicular space walk on 18 March 1965 during the Voskhod 2 mission. For 12 minutes, he floated outside his capsule, tethered above the earth. At the end of his spacewalk, Leonov's suit had inflated in the vacuum of space and he was unable to enter the airlock. He released pressure on the suit by opening the valve and was barely able to get back inside the capsule. This pioneering space walk was considered a crowning achievement for Soviets, and a defining event in the space race. The co-author, Dr. Vladimir Lebedev, was a leading specialist is space psychology, and he contributes insights into certain psychophysiological problems of space and time perceptions in spaceflight conditions. In addition to Leonov's work as a cosmonaut and pilot, he is an accomplished artist, and two of his paintings of earth from space illiustrate this book. Leonov took colored pencils and paper with him on his missions, and sketched the earth and drew portraits of his colleagues. Arthur C. Clarke's novel '2010: Odyssey Two' is dedicated to Leonov and Russian nuclear physicist Andrei Sakharov. Light wear at extremities, generally fine.
