        Look Back With Pleasure.

      Combe Lodge, Beckley, Sussex: , [c. 1971]. [Presentation copy of the unpublished typescript of the autobiography of Major General Sir Alec Bishop.] 2 volumes, octavo (254 x 205 mm), collation: volume I: ff. [ii] + xiv + 146; volume II: [i] + 147-304. Original binders of red faux leather spines, dark red cloth sides, brass binding screws, lettered in gilt on front covers. Professionally typed on rectos only, with dedication, preface, epilogue, appendix, and twelve pages of synoptic contents of the twenty-nine chapters. Inscribed on the title page of volume I: "With love and best wishes from the author - 16th January, 1972". A few light marks to binders, touch of foxing to titles and prelims (also to fore-edge), dampstain to fore-edge of volume I (not affecting margin of leaves); overall in excellent condition. Detailed, brisk, discursive and entertaining unpublished memoir by Major General Sir Alec Bishop (1897-1984), KCMG, CB, CVO, OBE, one of the senior British commanders in post-war Germany, running the gamut of his extensive career. The Imperial War Museum neatly summarises his account: "recording his experiences as a junior officer with the Dorset Regiment in Mesopotamia and Palestine during the First World War and in India during the 1920s, service in the Colonial and War Offices in the 1930s and in the War Cabinet Secretariat during 1940-1941 (with anecdotes about Churchill and the London Blitz), briefly as Deputy Director of the Political Warfare Executive at the end of the war, then with the Control Commission for Germany as Chief of Information Services, Deputy Chief of Staff and Regional Commissioner for North Rhine-Westphalia, 1945-1950, senior appointments in the Commonwealth Relations Office, 1951-1957, Deputy High Commissioner in Calcutta, 1957-1962, and High Commissioner in Cyprus, 1964-1965". Bishop's Great War service began as a junior officer with the 2nd Battalion of the Dorsets and there is a fascinating (if brief) account of his life "in the line", including some amusing asides ("one amenity not often found in the desert was provided by Lieut Holland and his violin. This officer had before the war occupied the position of first violinist in the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and fortunately had brought his violin to war with him"). India includes much on social aspects (functions, polo, big game shooting) but also a glimpse of the Moplah Rebellion (also known as the Malabar Uprising) of 1921 in which the Dorsets were engaged ("the Moplah bands fought with great bravery, often charging out of the forest at close quarters, many only armed with the traditional short Moplah sword"). A period in the Colonial Office is followed by extensive travel in Africa (South Africa, Sudan, Somalia, "southern Rhodesia"); he is in East Africa when war breaks out and then joins the War Cabinet Offices ("Service revolvers in London Clubs") and some wonderful snapshots of Churchill ("The Prime Minister enjoying being under fire", "Mr Churchill's courage and inspiration" and "Mr Churchill and Polish officers") including an unforgettable image of the Prime Minister "climbing onto the roof of 'The Annexe' [above the Central War Room] in the evenings wearing his blue siren suit and tin hat, and watching the current air raid and the efforts of our searchlights to pick up the enemy bombers. He claimed that this interlude stimulated and helped him when he returned to the work at his desk"; Martin Gilbert quotes Churchill's own account of witnessing the Blitz from the same position on a different night (The Second World War, II pp. 305-06). There is then an extensive and fascinating first-hand account of Germany immediately after the war and the situation in India. Historian Dr Christopher Knowles, author of the recently published Winning the Peace: The British in Occupied Germany, 1945-1948, considers Bishop's activities in post-war Germany to be the most significant part of his career: "General Bishop was posted to Germany in June 1945, one month after the end of the war, and left five and a half years later on New Year's Eve 1950, which makes him one of the longer serving senior officers. His first position was head of the 'Public Relations and Information Services Control' division of British Military Government, generally known by its acronym, PRISC. In 1946 he was appointed Deputy Chief of Staff to Sir Brian Robertson, then Deputy Military Governor, and from 1948-1950 he was Regional Commissioner for North Rhine-Westphalia, by far the largest Land, or region, in the British Zone of Occupation. His memoirs are easy to read with a wealth of interesting stories and anecdotes". The Imperial War Museum has a copy among Bishop's personal papers otherwise it is, by its very nature, rare. An entertaining and well-written memoir from an officer with over five decades "mostly spent in the service of the British Empire" (Preface).

      Clairvaux, Jura, France: Published by the Trianon Press for the William Blake Trust, London, 1971 - Small folio. Original tan quarter morocco, marbled paper sides, titles gilt to spine. With the original marbled paper slipcase. Tiny splits at the mouth of the slipcase, otherwise fine. Colour and monochrome plates throughout. First edition thus, publisher Arnold Fawcus's copy, number 1 of 28 numbered copies with the following calligraphic limitation notice signed by Geofrey Keynes, "This special edition bound in quarter morocco with added material shewing progressive stages of the printing of the plates is signed by the author & is limited to 28 numbered copies. No. 1. Geoffrey Keynes". This deluxe copy derives from the publisher's archive held by the descendants of the Trianon Press's founder and publisher Arnold Fawcus. The reduced format 16-colour facsimile appeared one year before the larger format 8-colour facsimile of 1972 - although that three volume edition is a magnificent piece of book making, this smaller format version, as well as being somewhat more wieldy, shows the quality of the Trianon Press's colour facsimile printing at its best.

        Le Torchon Brule Nos. 0-6 with La Mere Supplement [All Published]

      Paris: Le Torchon Brule, 1971. First edition. No. 0: 4to, 24 pages [including covers], offset printed on newsprint with two color cover. Numbers 1-5: Tabloid format, offset printed on newsprint in color. With supplement to No. 5: 4to, [8] pages, folded, unbound sheets offset printed in blue on newsprint. All issues published of one of the most important feminist periodicals published in France in the 1970's, which was an early and indispensable part of the second wave feminist movement in the country in the aftermath of the events of 1968. It includes the scarce debut issue zero, which was published as an insert in the Libertarian newspaper L'Idiote Liberte, and the special Mother's Day supplement, which was issued with no. 5 but is usually missing. The title of the periodical, which could be literally translated into English as "the dishcloth burns" is a French euphemism for domestic strife, with the connotation of an ongoing or running battle. Le Torchon Brule was a group project and radical with regards to content and format, with each issue being created by a different group of women. From a design perspective, Le Torchon Brule is remarkable for the extent to which the lack of a unified graphic design across the numbers seamlessly and successfully became the design itself, always provocative and involving the reader with each line and image - an achievement which has few parallels in the era. All issues in strong very good to near fine condition. Scarce complete, especially with the Mother's Day supplement and issue No. 0.

        Day of the Jackal, The

      London: Hutchinson, 1971. Inscribed First Edition of Frederick Forsyth's 'The Day of the Jackal' Bound by Sangorski & Sutclifffe In a Unique Pictorial Binding FORSYTH, Frederick. [SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE, binders]. The Day of the Jackal. London: Hutchinson, 1971. First edition. Presentation copy inscribed by John Forsyth on the verso of the half-title "To/Sir Dudley/with warmest regards/Freddie Forsyth/15.11.71." Octavo (8 3/8 x 5 3/16 inches; 213 x 132 mm.). [vi], 358 pp. Pictorially bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe ca. 1980 in full red, blue, black and white oasis morocco, front cover with black morocco onlays and silver rule depicting a marksman and crosshairs, smooth spine lettered in silver, all edges silver, red, blue and white head- and tail bands, patterned red and black end-papers, original dust-jacket preserved at end. Housed in the original full black morocco slipcase. Although the binding is unsigned it was specially commissioned by a collector who always used S & S. As a young journalist posted in Paris in the early 1960s, Forsyth had reported first hand from the scene of a genuine attempt by extreme right wing forces to assassinate President Charles de Gaulle on the Avenue de la Libération. It was this experience which inspired his 1971 novel, centered on an unnamed assassin, codenamed the "Jackal," who ingeniously plots a further threat to de Gaulle's life… Winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel, Forsyth's first thriller won immediate acclaim as "a strikingly successful thriller… It makes such comparable books as The Manchurian Candidate and The Spy Who Came In From The Cold seem like Hardy Boy mysteries" (New York Times). Drawing on events such as a 1962 assassination attempt on De Gaulle, made by Alain de Bougrenet de la Tocnaye, Forsyth returned from years as a war correspondent in Africa to write his novel "in just 35 days, a feat he describes as something 'not quite so crazy when you think of twelve pages a day, times that by thirty-five and there you go, there's your novel" (BBC). Basis for the popular 1973 film by director Fred Zinneman, starring Edward Fox. Preceded the same year by the English edition. Yaakov & Greenfieldt, 231. A fine signed copy.

      [London:] The Curiously Strong Press,, 1971. The Curiously Strong Vol IV No2 October 31st. Quarto, pp. 28. Original reverse-colour paper covers, wire-stitched, front cover lettered in black on purple, rear cover lettered in purple on black. Single pen annotation to p. 1, correcting "freaming" to "dreaming". Slight rubbing and a few nicks to extremities, some gentle creasing to front cover, light foxing to endpapers. First edition, first impression, signed by the author on the title page. A scarce copy of the author's first published work, and the first of only three volumes of poetry. Ackroyd dates his signature "London: November 25, 1990". The Curiously Strong was a poetry magazine established by the American poet Fred Buck in the late 1960s and later edited by Ian Patterson until its cessation a decade later. Its name was a nod to the Altoids mints catchphrase, and the single author pamphlets were sent, for free, to anyone who sent a stamp to the editor. It published early work by writers such as Peter Riley, John James, Barry MacSweeney, Anthony Barnett, and Nick Totton. Ouch, along with Ackroyd's second and third volumes of poetry, London Lickpenny (1973) and Country Life (1978), was later included in a collection entitled The Diversions of Purley and Other Poems (1987). This edition is extremely rare commercially and there are only four copies located in institutional holdings worldwide (WorldCat, Copac).

        Portrait of Paul and Linda McCartney

      OFFERING: A large Kodachrome II print developed by Kodak from the April 1971 Malibu shoot for Paul and Linda McCartney and given by Paul McCartney to Vincent Romeo, his personal manager with McCartney Productions Ltd. No other example of the print is known to have been offered for sale. RARITY: Exceedingly Rare. PROVENANCE: Purchased from the first auction of music memorabilia from Vincent Romeo's collection. THE PRINT: The shot was taken with a Pentax SLR 35mm camera in early April 1971 in Malibu and printed from the transparency using the K-12 Development Process. The 276 x 353 mm Kodachrome II print has never been framed and is sleeved loose, as issued in the Kodak color enlargement folder. This is not a print of the widely circulated image used for the iconic April 16, 1971 LIFE magazine cover. One of a series of shots taken for possible promotion of the recording, RAM, it was shot at the same time of day as the LIFE cover shot and Paul and Linda are dressed in the same clothes, but as evidenced by the composition with its exquisite balance of light and shadow and the smaller grouping of yellow flowers in the background, it was taken closer in with a wider aperture. Because of its extraordinary intimacy, it was expressly printed for Paul and Linda McCartney by Kodak in July 1971, Kodak's stamped seal on the rear stating, "A color print made by Kodak, July 71R." With its beautiful color composition and moving contrasts of emotional openness and reticence, it communicates Paul and Linda's love in a way never surpassed. CONDITION: Better Than Good. Photo Print: top outer corner with 2 tiny scratches, one-the size of a very small grain of sand, top tips with light wear, outer edges with light bend that won't be seen mounted and framed. Scrutinized in extreme close-up in bright light, a slight dulling of Paul's hair can be seen on the left side, likely from cleaning: there is no other color deterioration. Rear: finger smudge and small black bar, marks not visible viewing the print. / The original Kodak color enlargement, cardstock folder: some handling wear, small stain at top edge, light soiling, upper side with auction number in pencil, a few bubbles. VINCENT ROMEO: Before becoming personal manager for Paul McCartney at MPL, he was a leading agent with CMA and represented Cat Stevens and Grand Funk Railroad. Recommended to Paul & Linda by Lee V. Eastman, Linda's father, a prominent New York entertainment lawyer, who had been retained as counsel by Grand Funk Railroad, he left CMA for MPL. After, he became vice president of artist development for CBS International Records. BACKGROUND: The day shoot is well documented. Shots were taken by the garden near the pool, at the Malibu beach house rented by Paul and Linda for the family, including their two girls, Heather (by Linda's first marriage) and Mary (b. 1969, their first child together). Linda was three months pregnant with Stella. Recording had been finished in March and publicity was proceeding for its mid-May release. Paul and Linda were working on the illustrated RAM songbook. Henry Diltz, already a well-known photographer of rock musicians, was asked to come for his "fly on the wall thing". HENRY DILTZ: had first met Linda in the summer of 1966 at the Modern Age Photo Lab in New York while working on a photo shoot of the Lovin' Spoonful. A leading rock photographer of the 60's-70's California rock music scene and the official photographer of Woodstock and the Monterey Pop Festival, he would also be flown to the Virgin Islands by Paul and Linda in 1977 to take photos for a remembrance book while Wings was finishing tracks for "London Town". Photographs for more than 250 album sleeves are credited to him, including the first album of Crosby, Stills & Nash, the Doors' "Morrison Hotel", James Taylor's "Sweet Baby James", Jackson Browne's eponymous debut, and the Eagles' "Desperado". A documentary, "Under the Covers" discusses his album cover collaborations with Gary Burden. The comprehensive book on his work is "Henry Diltz: Rock On: The Photographs" with foreword by Graham Nash.
