        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)

      Decca, New York 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.

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.

        Pale Gray for Guilt (First American Hardcover Edition)

      J.B. Lippincott, Philadelphia 1971 - A handsome copy bound in finely woven blue green paper-covered boards; very clean and tight throughout; virtually unread. A very good copy with wear to the extremities in a very good original dust jacket with the price of $5.50 at the bottom of the inside front flap and the date code of "971" at the top of the flap.There is a light spot at the top of the spine and a touch of edge rubbing. One of the harder titles to find in dust jacket of the Lippincott Travis McGee series. John Dann MacDonald (1916–1986) was an American writer of novels and short stories, known for his thrillers. MacDonald was a prolific author of crime and suspense novels, many of them set in his adopted home of Florida. His best-known works include the popular and critically acclaimed Travis McGee series, and his novel The Executioners, which was adapted into the film Cape Fear. In 1972, MacDonald was named a grandmaster of the Mystery Writers of America, and he won a 1980 U.S. National Book Award in the one-year category Mystery. Stephen King praised MacDonald as "the great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller." Kingsley Amis said, MacDonald "is by any standards a better writer than Saul Bellow, only MacDonald writes thrillers and Bellow is a human-heart chap, so guess who wears the top-grade laurels?"(Wikipedia) First American Edition in hardcover with title page date of 1971.

      The World Press, Inc., 1971., Denver - 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.

      Harper and Row, New York 1971 - Color lithograph. Image measures 9.25 x 20". Sheet measures 14.75 x 23.75". Unsigned. The original print of artwork from Maurice Sendak's 1963 "Where the Wild Things Are" was part of a boxed set released by Harper and Row in 1971. Entitled "Pictures by Maurice Sendak," the set includes original prints of images from the author's books, here printed on single sheets rather than on two-page spreads. This particular image is entitled "March" and shows the characters parading through the forest. With scales, fangs, and horns, these Wild Things display some of the characteristics that caused controversy for Sendak at the time, as some parents found the drawings too grotesque. Today, the vivid green leaves and finely-rendered fur speak to the author's beloved style, and the character's jubilant poses communicate the emotion for which "Wild Things" is remembered. The print is in very good condition with wide margins as issued. Some wear to corners, not affecting the image. Maurice Sendak (1928-2012) was an American illustrator and writer known for his children's books. Producing illustrations for other authors as well as for television, he is best remembered for "Where the Wild Things Are," which is considered by some to be one of the first contemporary picture books.This print is a lovely example and memento of his work.
