        Solaris (Original set of 16 oversize photographs from the 1972 film)

      Creative Unit of Writers, Moscow 1972 - Set of 16 vintage oversize black-and-white still photographs from the Russian release of the 1972 Russian film. On the verso of each photograph is a label for a European distributor. Often cited as one of the most important films in the history of cinematography, "Solaris" is a meditative psychological drama occurring mostly aboard a space station orbiting the fictional planet Solaris. The scientific mission has stalled out because the meager skeleton crew of three scientists have fallen into separate emotional crises, and the gaseous planet below them is beginning to look like the main suspect. An open ended and conceptually faithful adaptation of Lem's novel, concerning itself with the inability of the human species to communicate with other intelligent life forms, based simply on the fact that a more advanced life form would exist outside the sphere of human experience and understanding.9.25 x 12 inches (23 x 30 cm). Near Fine, with only the most minute wear at the edges.Criterion Collection 164.

        Kosmicheskie Dali [Space in the Future]

      Moscow: Izobrazitel'noe iskusstvo, 1972. Very good antiquarian condition. Folio (380 x 285 mm). 36 pages of text and 34 plates (of which 16 are double page) in color and b/w. Preserved in a recent elaborate silver and red cloth portfolio case (authors' names and title lettered in Russian) incorporating red enamel Soviet medallion on the upper cover, silver doublures. Strange and wonderful Soviet astronautics portfolio, containing fantastical and brightly colored depictions of future Soviet space travel, as well as Communist inhabitation throughout the solar system. Included are large depictions of imaginary spacewalks, satellites, curious spacecraft, dreamy constellations, and unexplored planets. This is one of the masterpieces of Soviet ambition and optimism during the Space Race, while at the same time being a glorious piece of Communist propaganda, here broadcast on a "universal" scale. Whereas the first man on the Moon was obviously American, it is clear from the present specimen that nothing would prevent the Communist Russian government from leading mankind deep into the galaxy. A.A. Leonov, who wrote the text, was the pioneering cosmonaut who made the first spacewalk, and who was to supposed to have been the first man on the Moon. He collaborated with the artist A.K. Sokolov on similar Galleries of the Future, of which this easily our favorite. The work was issued on the 15th Anniversary of the launching of the Sputnkik. One of the images, depicted above, is Sokolov?s painting entitled "Manned Orbital Station? and consists of two parts. On the left is depicted is the Soyuz 11 in full color, and on the right a future orbital station printed black and silver paint. The general premise of the picture indicates a connection between the real and the possible. Scarce: Worldcat lists only four copies: LC and the Smithsonian (how could it be otherwise?), National Library of Sweden, and the National Diet Library Tokyo. ADDED: Highly curious Soviet propaganda pamphlet in four languages: "The Soviet Union 1922-1972," 47 pp., original self-wrappers. Not in Worldcat.

        Victorian Nightmares; The Man-Wolf and Other Horrors; A Tide of Terror; Return From The Grave; Terror by Gaslight; The Thrill of Horror; Cold Fear; The Taste of Fear.

      W.H. Allen 1972-1978, London - Eight volumes. 8vo. All very good or better in publisher's coloured cloth and dustwrappers. Minor edgewear, no priceclipping or significant wear or defect, a clean, tight uniform set. All signed by Hugh Lamb to title pages. Internally clean. A very pretty signed collection of one of the most comprehensive and carefully selected collections of weird and supernatural tales available. Collecting together a numberof stories and authors that at the time had been almost completely forgotten, Mr. Lamb performed a service to those who enjoy and collect such tales by reminding us of such gems as Erckmann-Chatrian's "The Man Wolf." and H.R. Wakefield's "The Red Lodge." without forcing us to track them down in their original form at great expense and frustration. The fact that now, having read them, we can go track them down is due entirely to mr. lamb's refusal to allow them to be forgotten. An attractive and increasingly rare collection. ecat1 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Midnight Parasites (Original poster for the 1972 animated short film)

      Animation-Film, Tokyo 1972 - Original poster for the 1972 Japanese animated short film depicting a surreal landscape filled with danger, murder, and odd reproduction.From the collection of noted film historian Amos Vogel.Kuri, a Japanese cartoonist and independent filmmaker, is perhaps the most important figures in the history of Japanese independent animation. He was the unofficial leader and most prolific of the "Animation Association of Three" collective who kick-started the renaissance of modern styled, independently made, adult aimed animation in early 1960s Japan. He is known internationally for the very black comedy of his films, with the intentionally naïve style of his cartooning often belying the surreal, obscene, and disturbing situations they depict. In the 1960s Kuri became a favorite among fervently counter-cultural audiences, including filmmakers such as René Laloux. In 1967, Ralph Stephenson, somewhat hyperbolically, called the director "the only Japanese animator whose work is known in the West. 21.5 x 31 inches, thus non-standard size, though most resembling a Japanese B2 format (20 x 28 inches). Rolled, Near Fine.

Neben sprachspielerischen und komischen, doch zugleich reflexiven Gedichten besonders der frühen Jahr («Galgenlieder», «Palmström») gelang ihm in der kleinen Form, in seinen Aphorismen oder dem «Tagebuch eines Mystikers» eine tiefsinnig-ernste Weltbetrachtung. Durch den frühen Tod der Mutter, das enge finanzielle Korsett, vor allem aber die eigene Tuberkuloseerkrankung und die Suche nach geeigneten Aufenthaltsorten war Morgenstern zu einem unsteten Wanderleben gezwungen. 1909 begegnete er Rudolf Steiner, dessen Schriften und Denken, dem er in den verbleibenden Lebensjahren eng verbunden blieb. Gepflegt von seiner Frau, Margareta Gosebruch von Liechtenstern (? 1910), starb Morgenstern 1914 kurz vor Erscheinen seines letzten, Steiner gewidmeten Gedichtbands «Wir fanden einen Pfad». /werke Versand D: 5,90 EUR

        La Increible y Triste Historia de la Candida Erendira y de su Abuela Desalmada

      Mexico: Editorial Hermes 1972 - First Mexican Edition. Publisher's pictorial paper wrappers, with illustrations of jellyfish and starfish to the panels, lettered in black. Presentation copy, inscribed by García Márquez to Sylvia Ripstein on the front free endpaper, translated as: "For the innocent Sylvia, from her heartless grandfather, Gabriel, 1980." Near fine, with some light wear to the spine ends, faint toning to the extremities, minor offsetting from a small piece of removed tape to the front free endpaper, otherwise fresh interior. Overall, a bright and attractive copy, with excellent provenance. García Márquez inscribed this book to his former girlfriend, Sylvia Ripstein. Her brother, film director Arturo Ripstein, adapted García Márquez's No One Writes to the Colonel for the screen. This collection of short stories features the novella La Increible y Triste Historia de la Candida Erendira y de su Abuela Desalmada (The Incredibly Sad Story of Innocent Eréndira and Her Heartless Grandmother), which tells the story of a young Latina girl who accidentally sets her house on fire, leaving her and her grandmother homeless. In spiteful retaliation, the grandmother forces Eréndira to work as a prostitute while they roam the Colombian countryside. Both Eréndira and her grandmother play minor roles in Márquez's 1967 novel Cien años de soledad (One Hundred Years of Solitude). Interestingly, Márquez originally wrote "Innocent Eréndira" as a screenplay, but published the story in novella format instead. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
