        In the Night Kitchen: Bakers

      New York: Harper & Row, 1971 - Fine full-color art print from Maurice Sendak's Caldecott Medal Honor Book IN THE NIGHT KITCHEN (1970), illustrating "Milk in the Batter! Milk in the Batter! We Bake Cake! And Nothings The Matter!" showing three Oliver Hardy chefs whipping together the ingredients for a Mickey-Cake while in the far top left of the image a naked Mickey watches (a pictorial allegory preliminary to giving birth after mixing assorted Mickey ingredients and then baking them inside an oven). Whereas in the book this sequence is printed on two separate pages, here they are both printed on one sheet (as in the original artwork) with the combined image measuring 10 x 16-1/8 inches (approx 25.4 x 41 cm) on larger paper. This sheet was actually printed in 1971 as part of a series of favorite images selected by Mr Sendak and newly re-photographed from original artwork at the Sendak archives, Rosenbach Museum & Library, Philadelphia; altogether 19 different designs from eight titles were chosen for this project, to allow friends and collectors the opportunity to hang a print on their wall without mutilating any of his books, some in full color and others in duotone or black line. All of these were issued unsigned, but over the years the artist has selectively autographed a few copies of various images for friends and occasionally for concessionary sale. This particular copy of this extraordinary print is in very fine condition and is fully ink-signed by the artist below the lower right corner of the image. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        American Robin. 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.

        Summer and Smoke Opera in two acts based on the play by Tennessee Williams Libretto by Lanford Wilson. Op. 27. Autograph musical manuscript of the complete full score, signed and dated by the composer on the final page: "North Salem, NY, 27 May 1971."

      - Elephant folio (ca. 500 x 330 mm.). Unbound. [1] (title, including cast list and instrumentation), 496 pp. Notated in pencil on 28-stave music manuscript paper on one side of each leaf only. Numerous leaves comprised of sections taped together to form a single leaf; pp. 407-462 on slightly smaller format paper; pp. 251-255 in photographic copy with autograph additions. A little minor soiling and wear. In very good condition overall. After hearing Hoiby's earlier opera, A Month in the Country (the revised version of his Natalia Petrovna, based on a play by Ivan Turgenev, premiered by the New York City Opera in 1964), Tennessee Williams approached Hoiby with the suggestion that he might be interested in writing an opera based on one of Williams's works. Hoiby's setting of Summer and Smoke was the result; it is the first opera to be based on a Williams play and is perhaps Hoiby's most famous work. Commissioned by the St. Paul Opera Association, Summer and Smoke was composed in 1970 and premiered on June 19th 1971 in St. Paul, Minnesota with Igor Buketoff conducting. It went on to a production by the New York City Opera on March 12th 1971 under Julius Rudel. "It continues to be performed with substantial success, and its 1980 production by the Chicago Opera Theater was broadcast in June 1982 by PBS-TV (WTTW), Chicago, and seen nationally. For its production during the Lee Hoiby Festival at California State University, Long Beach in 1989. Hoiby added a new scene in Act 1 drawn from his Three Women: Scenes for Soprano, Saxophone and Piano (1988).". Summer and Smoke is a skilful interweaving of offstage music and spoken passages. It is a lyrical, poetic and compelling work that critics praised as America's most successful opera to date. Paul Hume (writing in the Washington Post) considered it an 'opera of immense emotional power flooded with music of great beauty'." Grove onlineConsidered "a modern Romantic from the lineage of Barber and Menotti," Hoiby's Summer and Smoke is regarded as having achieved "an eloquence comparable to the later works of Barber." op. cit.More recently, the work was revived at the Manhattan School of Music, where it received three performances in December, 2010: "When. Summer and Smoke. had its premiere in 1971, it was criticized by some for its conservative music, awash in the harmonic language of Menotti (Mr. Hoiby's mentor), Barber and Mahler, and its unabashedly lyrical vocal writing. But the work, with an effective and delicately poetic libretto by the playwright Lanford Wilson, also won deserved praise for doing what an opera is supposed to do: telling the story with sure dramatic pacing and understated expressivity, in music admirable for its directness and melodic grace."These qualities shone through on Wednesday night when the Manhattan School of Music Opera Theater presented the first of three performances, with Mr. Hoiby, 84, in attendance. The conductor Steven Osgood drew supple, beautifully restrained playing from the able musicians." "Set in Glorious Hill, a small Mississippi town, the story unfolds during several momentous months in the lives of two young adults who grew up as neighbors: John Buchanan Jr., a dashing doctor, and Alma Winemiller, the sweet but inhibited daughter of a pious minister. The handsome production, directed by Dona D. Vaughn, using windows and sets that descend into place, imaginatively evoked the neighboring houses: the staid sitting room in the rectory where the Winemillers live and the doctor's office where young John Buchanan practices with his father." Anthony Tommasini in The New York Times, December 9, 2010.

        Who's Next (Original promotional poster for the 1971 album)

      New York: Decca, 1971. Original poster promoting the US release on Decca for the thunderous 1971 album, using the album cover's famed shot of the band walking away from a concrete piling at a spoil tip in Easington Colliery.At the beginning of the 1970s, The Who took a breather between rock operas ("Tommy" in 1969, "Quadrophenia" in 1973) to put out an album that would set the bar for all rock music that would follow in terms of sonic palette, fury, and pure songwriting greatness. But in truth "Who's Next" began as a rock opera as well, a futuristic film/concert/album project Townshend had in mind titled "Lifehouse." But the project proved intractable, leading to a falling out between Townshend and the band's producer Kit Lambert and what Townshend later describe "a near suicidal nervous breakdown."The band reconnoitered with a new producer, Glyn Johns, and started over, using scraps from "Lifehouse." Townshend toyed with synthesizers (and a Lowery organ on "Baba O'Riley"), an electronic envelope follower, and a noisemaker--not as a dominating part of the record's sound, but as more of a part of its overall sonic effect. The Who broke from the constraints of storytelling and instead focused on making maximum impact with individual songs.32 x 20 inches. Rolled, on archival linen. Near Fine.Pitchfork 100.

        THX 1138 (1971)

      Warner Brothers 1971 - Vintage original 24 x 38 ¾" (61 x 99 cm.) special teaser poster, USA. Robert Duvall, Donald Pleasence, Don Pedro Colley, Maggie McOmie, dir: George Lucas; George Lucas' first feature film, adapted from his own university short film. His USC short garnered so much attention that Francis Ford Coppola, under his then newly-formed American Zoetrope company, gave Lucas the chance to make a feature. The story is of a futuristic society located beneath the earth's surface where people are named in codes and controlled by drugs, and where sex is forbidden. When two members go off the drugs and one becomes pregnant, they are in big trouble, thrown in jail and must escape. With its bleak outlook, political commentary and moral story, Lucas started his career in a vein different from the more escapist road it has taken. Very rare and unusual poster, silver foil on heavy paper. Folded, VERY GOOD

( 9.8 x 7.6") CONDITION - SEE CAREFULLY PHOTOS YELLOW PAPER TO THE FIELDS BROWN PAPER ON REVERSE SIDE  SHIPPING COST $ 35 I SEND IT EMS, INSURED   Miron Sima (1902-1999). Born in a Shtetl in Czarist Russia, Miron Sima first studied art in Odessa in 1921. In the following year he moved to Dresden, Germany to continue his studies. For seven years he both studied and worked at Dresden's Academy of Fine Arts under the important Expressionist artist, Otto Dix. Dix taught Sima both painting and graphic art techniques and had a wide ranging influence upon the younger artist. Like Dix, Sima often explored the effects of poverty and victimization in his art. Sima's woodcuts were widely exhibited throughout Germany by 1930 and he was awarded the prestigious Dresden Art Prize in 1932. Sadly, with the rise of Hitler and the Nazis he was the last Jew to receive such an award. Sima moved to Palestine in 1933. He first settled in Tel Aviv and designed theatre sets. Five years later he settled permanently in Jerusalem and taught art classes. In 1949 Sima co-founded the Jerusalem Artists House and was among the first to participate in its exhibitions. During the following years he was twice awarded the Dizengoff Prize and a medal at the Venice Biennale (1963). Sima was a full member of the Art Academies of both Zurich and Florence. Despite Sima's international successes, however, he was often neglected in Israel. Around 1950 the abstract art of the New Horizons movement began to dominate throughout the country. Realist and Expressionist artists such as Sima often worked on in obscurity. Yet from 1955 to 1977, Sima produced a number of brilliant color woodcuts, which gave him an international recognition throughout Europe. Beggars Sleeping Outdoors is one of his largest and most impressive works of art in this medium. Sima created 400 courtroom drawings of Eichmann trial. He died in 1999. Since Sima's death, Israel has re-discovered his art. Fortunately, Sima willed his estate to Jerusalem's Ein Harod Museum of Art. The museum now houses many paintings and prints from all periods of Sima's career. Major retrospectives of Sima's art were held in Israel in both 2000 and 2001.

        Trumpeter Swan [young]. 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.

        PEÑA LABRA. Pliegos de Poesía. Director Aurelio García Cantalapiedra. Números 1 - 68 (todo lo publicado).

      Institución Cultural de Cantabria, Santander 1971 - 24x34. En sus carpetas editoriales, en pliegos sueltos. En la tradición de Carmen, Proel y Isla de los Ratones, Peña Labra fue la última gran revista literaria santanderina del siglo XX, publicada desde 1971 hasta 1989. Cosa rara entre revistas institucionales - fue publicada por la Diputación Provincial de Santander - destaca por su gran belleza de diseño, y la excepcional calidad de sus reproducciones, obra de la Imprenta Bedia, todavía en sus años de gloria como, quizás, la mejor imprenta de España. Hay números monográficos dedicados a José Luis Hidalgo (Nº 2), Gerardo Diego - en nuestro ejemplar este número lleva dedicatorias autógrafas de José Hierro, García Nieto y otros a la poeta Matilde Camus (4); la revista Corcel (6), Proel (8), Espadaña, José de Ciria y el Ultraismo (18), Vicente Aleixandre (28-29), Juan Ramón Jiménez (40-41), José Hierro (43-44), La Isla de los Ratones (54), Rosalía de Castro (55), Francisco Brines (56), Zenobia Camprubí (64-65); incluye la antología de poetas montañeses - José del Río Sainz, Jesús Cancio, Carlos Salomón, etc. También encontramos contribuciones sueltas, y muchos autógrafos, a lo largo de los 68 números, de autores hispanoamericanos como Miguel Angel Asturas,Pablo Neruda, Octavio Paz; material gráfico original de Pancho Cossío, Alvaro Delgado, Julio Maruri, etc. Uno de los grandes valores de la revista, quizás su mayor punto de interés, fue la publicación de material original e inédita que habían dejado los grandes poetas del 98 y del 27 en manos de José María de Cossío en su casona de Tudanca; de aquí surgen, además de numerosos textos sueltos, facsimiles de folletos practicamente desconocidos como 'El Espejo del Agua' de Vicente Huidobro (1916), el expediente universitario de León Felipe, el número único de la revista 'Reflector' de Ciria; los magníficos monográficos sobre Manuel Machado (Nº 11), Antonio Machado (16), Juan Ramón Jiménez (20), Unamuno (32), Eugenio D'Ors (33), Villalón (34), León Felipe (37), Dámaso Alonso (45),Rafael Alberti (46-47), Federico García Lorca(51), Muy buenos ejemplares. No es raro encontrar números sueltos de esta revista, pero la colección entera es muy rara. Añadimos el número homenaje Cuasi Peña Labra, publicado en 2004. Muy buenos ejemplares. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 4 Euros.
