        Original drawing signed "Paul Sharits" and inscribed to the noted music administrator and author Renée Levine [Packer]

      Sharits "was a visual artist, best known for his work in experimental, or avant-garde filmmaking, particularly what became known as the structural film movement... [His] film work primarily focused on installations incorporating endless film loops, multiple projectors, and experimental soundtracks." He was a teacher at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Antioch College, and SUNY Buffalo. Wikipedia online. "Born in France, raised in New York and Mexico City, Levine Packer worked with Lukas Foss and was co-director with Morton Feldman of the renowned contemporary music group in Buffalo, New York, and a director of the Contemporary Music Festival at the California Institute of the Arts. She was Director of the Inter-Arts program at the National Endowment for the Arts, the producer of Steve Reich and Beryl Korot's multimedia opera The Cave, and a dean at the Maryland Institute College of Art." Oxford University Press online. Filmmakers Paul Sharits and Hollis Frampton participated in the Evenings for New Music in Buffalo series in 1973, which which Renée Levine Packer was involved: "About that time, no one was hiring filmmakers as teachers. SUNYB, however, by now had a tradition of hiring practicing composers and musicians engaged in avant-garde music, such as the Creative Associates and the more senior composers through the Slee Professor Endowment. Based on these models, I made the first hires for what became the Center for Media Studies in 1973: filmmakers Paul Sharits and Hollis Frampton." The Life of Sounds: Evenings for New Music in Buffalo, p. 111.. 1 page, ca. 241 x 151 mm. Inscribed "two double marks, for renée" and dated "[19]74" in pencil to blank lower margin. A rectangle comprised of many small diagonal lines in coloured inks on dark ivory graph paper. Very slightly worn and browned; occasional show-through to blank verso.

It is the COMPLETE set of Ace SF doubles Numerical series, starting with 00990, to 93900 (books were not issued in numerical order, but numbers were assigned based on the alphabetic properties of one of the titles in the volume). The Numerical series consisted of both reprints from earlier Ace Doubles, and first editions, and several authors made important appearances here. Notable first editions are by Dean R. Koontz (FIVE books), 5 entries in E.C. Tubb's Dumarest series, Philip Jose Farmer's Tarzan and Doc Savage pastiches (The Mad Goblin and The Lord of the Trees), and an entry in Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover series. Two Philip K.

Chr. in Novum Comum, heute Como; † 25. August 79 in Stabiae am Golf von Neapel), war ein römischer Gelehrter, Offizier und Verwaltungsbeamter, der vor allem durch die Naturalis historia, ein enzyklopädisches Werk zur Naturkunde Bedeutung erlangt hat. Er starb während des großen Vesuvausbruchs im Alter von 55 Jahren. . Plinius’ Leben ist fast nur durch einige Anspielungen in seinem eigenen Werk Naturalis historia, durch zwei Briefe Plinius’ des Jüngeren sowie die Vita Plinii aus dem Catalogus virorum illustrium Tranquilli bezeugt. Nach letzterer ist sein Geburtsort Novum Comum in der Provinz Gallia cisalpina. Das Geburtsdatum kann eingegrenzt werden, da sein Neffe berichtet, dass Plinius in seinem 56. Lebensjahr stand, als er starb. . Als Offizier war Plinius in verschiedenen römischen Provinzen eingesetzt. Im Jahr 47 n. Chr. kam er nach Niedergermanien und gelangte unter Domitius Corbulo in das Gebiet der Chauken. Später erreichte er Gebiete nördlich des Mittel- und Oberrheins. Spätestens 59 n. Chr. war er zurück in Italien, übte jedoch unter Nero keine militärische oder zivile Funktion im Staat aus und konzentrierte sich auf seine wissenschaftlichen und literarischen Tätigkeiten. Nach dem Prinzipat Neros diente Plinius in mehreren römischen Provinzen als Finanzverwalter (Procurator), unter anderem in Hispania Tarraconensis. Um 79 n. Chr. leitete er als Präfekt die in Misenum unweit des Vesuvs stationierte römische Flotte.

LA CARTELLINA PRESENTA LIEVE BRUNITURA E LIEVI SEGNI DEL TEMPO. LE XILOGRAFIE, ALL'INTERNO, SONO PERFETTE. MISURE: 49X34 cm. AVVERTENZA: Nessuna delle ventisei xilografie contenute in questa cartella, è nella misura del legno originale: tutte sono o ridotte o ingrandite. Remo Branca uno dei nostri maggiori incisori di fama internazionale, ed è sardo nell'espressione severa, chiusa dell'immagine, come nella sua forma robusta e aspra, senza mezzi termini. Alcuni suoi capolavori si impongono all'osservatore e li ricordiamo volentieri. Già nel Discorso dell'acqua viva del 1923 sopprimendo qualsiasi elemento accessorio e modellando e chiaroscurando con forza, l'artista ci proietta un senso di mistero profondo, che si riassume nella fermezza del gesto di Cristo e nella concentrazione dell'ascolto dell'eroica Samaritana, L'uomo di Orgòsolo (1934) è figura a mezzo busto che si erge immediata e potente sul fondo di un paese povero, espressione di una volontà indomabile di un mondo arcano. Né la giovinezza distrae lo spirito del Branca ché nelle Ragazze di Orgòsolo (1934), che balzano da un fondo di pietre, i loro sguardi pensosi e tristi denunciano immediatamente il mondo cupo e non transeunte cercato dall'artista. In una vasta composizione del 1938, in quella Fratelli di Gallura, il tema si sviluppa ulteriormente: il dramma si concentra nelle forme rudi, viste tra le ombre dense di sprazzi di luce, come negli occhi fissi, intensi, rivelatori di un passato di sofferenze e preannunciatori di un oscuro avvenire; e tutto il mondo di unaterra, di un popolo ci è davanti. Per gli anni più vicini a noi pensiamo al Crepuscolo (1966), dove ci appre la bellezza suprema ma severa di una giovane donna a mezzo busto, lo sguardo girato, il capo avvolto in un panno nero, che domina, figlia di un popolo eccezionale, la campagna del suo paese all'ora del tramonto. La sintesi, le masse, le luci e le ombre sono i mezzi sovrani di espressione del Branca, il quale non racconta ma rappresenta, magnificando la sua gente, ma in modo tale che esorbitando da caratteri locali di razza e di costumi, questa viene ad appartenere ad una grande umanità. L'ultimo capolavoro, La Madre dell'Uccisore (1971): una testa immensa nell'angusto riquadro del foglio, un volto impenetrabile di dolore, suggellato da repressa ribellione, da sentimento materno, forse anche da un senso di condanna, l'ombra folta - che è lutto incancellabile - appena spezzata da vividi lampeggianti di luce, che servono a dare vieppiù risalto a questa tragica maschera umana, nel fondo il taglio di una collina profilata di croci e alberi. E' una immagine terribilmente impressionante, indimenticabile, quale di colpo (non vi sono cincischiature, pentimenti) può creare un grande artista. Il quale ha affrontato un altro tema di per se stesso arduo, quello del ritratto del Pontefice Regnante paolo VI (1970), ed è un'altra opera straordinaria per la penetrazione del pensiero in una forma davvero sarda, tra fasci di luce su un ciclo notturno, con effetto di energica vitalità. Ma il Branca è anche storico dell'incisione, che oltre ad altre opere di storia e di critica, ha ora portato a termine in tre volumi un corpus sui Maestri incisori di Sardegna (Editrice Sarda, Cagliari 195 / 1973), e che offre una quantità di geniali osservazioni, di notizie preziose, di documenti in genere non facilmente rintracciabili o alrimenti destinati a perire. Né vogliamo tralasciare di mettere in rilievo il gusto che impronta la stampa dei tre grossi volumi e in particolare rivelato dalle piccole deliziose incisioni che fanno da iniziale , da capi in testa, da finalini, o che in alcuni casi scendono deliziosamente lungo i margini delle pagine. Un'opera destinata ad ogni Gabinetto delle Stampe e a quegli amatori, forse non così comuni, che uniscono con la cultura un genuino senso dell'arte. Giulio R.

        Army Officer's Archive including an Early Vietnam Photograph Album

      United States, Italy, Korea, Vietnam, 1973. Archive. Very good. This archive consists of official paperwork, certificates, letters, and a photograph album that belonged to Lieutenant Colonel Carl L. Palmer. The photograph album contains over 50 corner-mounted photographs ranging in size from 3.5" x 5" to 8" x 10". About 25 additional photographs are laid-in. Most of this grouping is in nice shape, however the photograph album is missing its front cover and many of the images have significant humidity damage. The photographs appear to have been rearranged on the album pages several times. Palmer was commissioned as a cavalry officer in 142 and commanded a company in the 7th Replacement Depot at Naples during World War II. Later assignments as an armor officer included the 7th Infantry Division in Korea, the Army Concept Team in Vietnam (ACTIV), and 1st Armored Division at Fort Hood, Texas. After his military retirement, Palmer served in a civilian position as a Training Specialist at 4th Army Headquarters at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The documents begin with Palmer's initial physical exam in 1942 and end with a civilian "Reduction in Force" notification. In between are oaths of office, military school diplomas, promotion certificates, a Purple Heart award, several letters (including one notifying Palmer of a comrade's death in a Vietnam firefight and two from an officer in the Korean Army), and more. The collection of combat photographs in the album is the highlight of this archive. They document Palmer's assignment to ACTIV in 1963-1964. ACTIV, which consisted of civilian analysists and military advisors, was chartered in 1962 primarily to provide on-site evaluation and research to improve the operational effectiveness of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN). Based upon the photograph content, Palmer worked with the ARVN 2nd and 3rd Armored Battalions providing advice and collecting data about the M113 Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) and Mechanized Rifle Troop operations. The photographs show ARVN forces (including what appear to be Montagnard scouts), M113s conducting operations against the Viet Cong, captured Viet Cong being evacuated by an American Huey helicopter, dead Viet Cong, damage to M113s by high caliber weapons and recoilless rifles, a destroyed M113 (probably by a rocket propelled grenade, RPG), what appears to be a Viet Cong Tiger Trap (a large concealed hole that could swallow half an APC), a hasty river-wetgap crossing, the recovery of stuck M113s, and an ARVN awards ceremony. The ACTIV album is an important visual record of the early American involvement in Vietnam during the administration of President Kennedy before President Johnson's massive escalation of the war in 1964. As of 2016, no pre-1965 Vietnam War photograph albums are available within the trade. ABPC and the Rare Book Hub show no auction results for similar pre-1965 album,s and OCLC shows no pre-1965 Vietnam War albums held by institutions, however the U.S. Army Heritage and Education center has photograph collection documenting U.S. military involvement in Thailand in the early 1960s.

        Typed Letter Signed to a fellow philosopher

      New York 1973 - Professor of Philosophy at New York University from 1950 - 1979. He is best remembered for his work "Irrational Man." 1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, New York City, November 22, 1973. Exceptional typed letter with one handwritten line in which Barrett shares his NYU private phone number. Written to fellow philosopher Henry David Aiken, reflecting on their long friendship and the fact that both are getting older, in part: ".This is a love-letter to you, in lieu of seeing you. It doesn't do for seeing you, talking with you, but for the time being it must do. We shall see each other soon. Here we are, you and I, mired in the last crisis of all, so Erikson tells us, none more to go through, that's luck, but what a fucking indignity after all those other crises, adolescence, youth, middle age, what not, to have another tunnel to crawl through. You are the most intelligent man I've ever known, friend brother father once, and I wanted to talk with you about all this. I'm no longer a reader of Beckett; I've become one of his characters. I think you're the only philosopher in the United States who would understand me when I say it. For me it came about this way. I had been drinking too much. Alcohol dehydrates. In the middle of the summer, the heavy viscous New York summer, I had a heat seizure in the New York subway. My legs gave out under me. I was helped out alive. But I knew fear as I'd never known it before. When the body gives way, you begin to think, really think. Think what? In the time closing around you, you think of the few things that we may have left to do, the few people you really want to see. I thought of you. If I'm ever to do anything again, ever write anything again, it will only be after talking with you. If I%u2019d had you to talk with, this last book of mine would have been a lot different and a lot better. Dear friend: take care, take heart, I crawl forward a little, and you too crawl. Maybe we will crawl out of this god-damned tunnel yet." Henry David Aiken (1912 - 1982) was the author of "Age of Ideology." Natural folds; light wrinkling and spotting. Very good(-) condition.

        A Name for Evil (Original photograph from the 1973 film)

      Boca Raton, FL: Penthouse, 1973. Vintage oversize, double weight, borderless still photograph from the 1973 film, based on the 1947 novel by Andrew Lytle. Shot, struck, and mounted by the film's still photographer, Bob Willoughby, with a holograph notation in his hand on the verso. Full provenance available. After studying with Saul Bass at the Kann Institute of Art in Los Angeles, Willoughby began working as a photographer for magazines such as "Life," "Look," and "Harper's Bazaar" in the late 1940s. It was while on assignment covering Judy Garland in a "A Star is Born" that Willoughby's ability to capture his subjects' spontaneity, humor, and vulnerability, resulting in images that were far different from more traditional film stills, came to Hollywood's attention and earned him his first "Life" magazine cover. Willoughby spent the next 20-plus years working as a set photographer for every major studio, documenting some of most important films of the era and creating intimate portraits of some of Hollywood's greatest celebrities. Technically and stylistically innovative, Willoughby built the first remote radio-controlled cameras used on film sets, pioneered the use of the "silent blimp" for 35mm cameras, and created brackets to mount his cameras directly over the movie cameras to capture the same images. Willoughby moved his family to County Cork, Ireland in 1972, working on only a handful of films through the late 1970s and early 1980s, though he would continue to photograph, exhibit, and publish books for the remainder of his life. The stills in this collection were given by Willoughby to friends in Kilbrittain, Ireland just prior to his move to Vence, France in 1989, where he would remain until his death in 2009. Perhaps more than any other photographer, Willoughby is responsible for creating the the look of mid-century celebrity and moviemaking in the popular imagination, with his images printed in magazines literally every week of his career. But beyond being prolific, Willoughby's legacy rests with his ability capture the essence of the actors he photographed, as well as the films with which those photographs were associated. As Sydney Pollack said in his introduction to Willoughby's autobiography, "Sometimes a filmmaker gets a look at a photograph taken on his own set and sees the 'soul' of his film in one still photograph. It's rare, but it happens. It happened to me in 1969, the first time I looked at the work of Bob Willoughby during the filming of "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" Willoughby's photographs are in the permanent collections of ten museums, including The National Portrait Galleries in Washington, DC and London, the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Tate Modern. 13.25 x 9 inches (34 x 23 cm). Fine. Weldon, 1996, p. 388-389.
