        The Black Interpreters

      (Johannesburg): Ravan Press. (1973). Second issue, with passages by Mandlenkosi Langa censored on pages 54 and 60. Subtitled "Notes on African Writing," with one section on fiction and one on poetry. This copy is signed by the Nobel Prize-winning author. The poet was supposedly issued with a banning order in October, 1973 and the passages quoting him had to be deleted or the issues pulped: later reports say it was actually Langa's brother Benjamin who had been banned. Owner signature on verso of front flyleaf; mild handling to covers; about near fine in wrappers. A fairly uncommon book in either issue, and quite scarce signed. Softcover.

      - 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. 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."

        [Photographs]: Hessians Motorcycle Club

      [Southern California. 1973-1987]. A voluminous collection of vernacular images of The Hessians, a Southern California outlaw bikers club doing what bikers do: riding bikes, smoking and drinking, brandishing guns, and hanging out with girls in halter tops. The collection totals 356 color snaps shots of various formats. Most measuring between 3.5" x 3.5" and 6" x 4". Perhaps a dozen are duplicates or near-duplicates. Many are date stamps or hand-dated on the rear along with scattered captions. The photos start in 1973 but a great majority are from the late-70s to the mid-80s, with the more recent being a group of images captured at the Club's 19th Anniversary bash in 1987. Light fading on some and a handful with evidence of mounting on the rear but overall near fine.The Hessians were founded in 1968 in Costa Mesa and their history and memorials can be found on their website which includes a description that also sums up the contents of these pictures: "Angry, Violent, Intoxicated, Anti-social, Poorly groomed, Sexually Deviant, Heavily tattooed maniacs!" While purporting to be a group of motorcycle enthusiasts, they have left behind plenty of evidence of criminal activity. At one point they boasted membership of around 500, making them one of the strongest clubs in California, though today their numbers have dwindled below 100.The photos, which seem to have been compiled by a girlfriend of a club member, record various rallies and runs, including a large percentage of on-the-road images with pictures of bikers riding taken by someone on another bike. Except for perhaps a dozen "at home" pictures, these images are pretty much exclusively devoted to Club activities, social gatherings, and their interaction with other motorcycle clubs, such the Vigilantes, Klan and Rogues, as well as some with the police. The totality of the large group of images present an interesting window on the often secretive world of outlaw biker gangs. .

This is the graphically innovative sixteen page artist book cum catalogue produced by the members of Los Four in conjunction with their historic 1973 survey exhibition held at the Art Gallery at the University of California, Irvine and subsequently the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Comprised of local artists Carlos Almaraz, Roberto "Beto" de la Rocha, Gilbert "Magu" Lujan, and Frank Romero, the work of Los Four was a highly important and influential part of the burgeoning Chicano Art movement of the seventies. Printed with a visually striking split rainbow fount, it features four parallel photographic narratives that run horizontally along the length of its accordion-fold pull-out accompanied by biographical statement by each of the four artists. A bright, most handsome example of this exceedingly uncommon ephemeral item limited to one thousand, five hundred unnumbered copies that was the only printed documentation of the exhibition. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. Inventory Number: 024954

        Groot Abecedarium. (Met een inleiding door Prof. G.W. Ovink).

      Bemmel/ Nijmegen, Harry van Kuyk, 1973. Drie linnen overslagdozen in een houten kast (Boekbinderij van der Heijden; 71 x 54 x 10,5 cm.), met ingelegd een bronzen plaquette van Oscar Goedhart. Het geheel bestaat uit 26 reliëfdukken en vijf zeefdrukken, alle genummerd en gesigneerd door de kunstenaar, aangevuld met een titelpagina, zes tekstbladen ('Van voren af aan', een inleiding tot het Groot Abecedarium door Prof. G.W. Ovink) en een colofonblad. Gedrukt in een oplage van 60 genummerde exemplaren.* Enorm project van grafisch kunstenaar Harry van Kuyk, waaraan drie jaar gewerkt is. Dit Abecedarium bestaat uit de 26 letters van het alfabet, artistiek vertaald naar reliëfdrukken op zeer zwaar papier, door de kunstenaar in eigen atelier afgedrukt op zijn naar Aldus Manutius vernoemde reliëfpers. De prenten zijn zonder inkt gedrukt en gedijen in een spel van licht en schaduw. In de map met de inleiding door Ovink bevinden zich vijf zeefdrukken, pendanten van vijf verschillende letters uit de reliëfmappen. Paul van Capelleveen schrijft op de site van de Nederlandse Koninklijke Bibliotheek over hem: 'Kunstenaar en drukker Harry van Kuyk (1929-2008) kreeg vanaf de jaren zeventig - ook internationaal - aandacht voor zijn speciale reliëfdrukken. Om die te kunnen drukken liet hij een zware pers bouwen die het mogelijk maakte om reliëfs van enkele centimeters in een prent te krijgen, zowel positief als negatief, dus in de hoogte én in de diepte, vaak in één prent gecombineerd. De uitgaven van Van Kuyk bevinden zich op het snijvlak van kunstenaarsboek, private press-uitgave en grafiekmap. In bibliotheken is zijn werk nauwelijks vertegenwoordigd, in musea des te meer'.

        Hrabanus Maurus. Liber de laudibus sanctae Crucis. Phantastische Bildgedichte aus der karolingischen Hofschule. Wien, Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, Cod. Vindob. 652, Fulda, nach 844.

      - Diese Abschrift des Wiener Codex erlangte bereits zu Lebzeiten seines Verfassers große Berühmtheit und eine planmäßige Verbreitung. Als sein Autor ist - durch einen Verfasservermerk und mehrere Quellen ausgewiesen - der Fuldaer Mönch und spätere Bischof von Mainz, Hrabanus Maurus, gesichert. Der als »praeceptor Germaniae« gelobte Hrabanus gab seiner Schrift die literarische Form der Bildgedichte, die schon sein berühmter Lehrer Alkuin in Tours geübt hatte. Hrabanus führte diese Gattung zu einer neuen Blüte. Unter den 28 Bildgedichten unserer Handschrift lassen sich zwei verschiedene Typen feststellen: Zum einen finden sich »Figurengedichte« mit geometrischen Schemata, zum anderen solche, deren innere Sinnzeilen menschliche und tierische Gestalten füllen. Beide Formen - die abstrahierenden Zeichen wie die Abbilder (imagines) - können auf spätantike Traditionen zurückgeführt werden. Zur Erleichterung der Lesung der in Bogen oder oft auch gegenläufig angeordneten inneren Gedichte dient der jedem Bild unmittelbar gegenübergestellte, in Minuskeln ausgeführte Prosatext auf der Recto-Seite. Er erläutert den Sinn und wiederholt - meist in roter Tinte besonders gekennzeichnet - die hervorgehobenen Wortgruppen der Verso-Seite. Aber nicht nur inhaltlich, sondern auch historisch ist dieser Codex äußerst spannend, denn es gab verschiedenen Abschriften mit unterschiedlicher Widmung, die jedoch später als zum Codex gehörig angesehen und mit kopiert wurden! Die Faksimilierung gilt als technische Glanzleistung ihrer Zeit! Vollständige farbige Faksimile-Ausgabe der 100 Seiten (48 + 2 Blatt) im Originalformat 40,3 x 30,7cm. 2 ganzseitige Miniaturen, 30 Figurentafeln (Bildgedichte mit farbigen Figuren). Die übrigen Seiten mit schwarzer Schrift, alle Blätter originalgetreu randbeschnitten. Ledereinband unter Verwendung von Motiven des Einbandes von Codex Vindobonensis 522. Kommentar separat, Graz 1973. Kodikologische und kunsthistorische Einführung von K. Holter, Wels. 32 Seiten Text, 4 Tafeln mit 16 Abbildungen. Mit leichten Lagerspuren. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Poet and the Rent

      David Mamet, Flossmoor, Ill[inois]. 1973 - Quarto. 41pp. Mimeographed playscript printed in purple, printed rectos only, prong-bound into manila folder, hand-titled by Mamet on front wrap: "Poet and the Rent by David Mamet. This Copy Belongs To David Mamet" and with the number "19" in upper right-hand corner. Very good or better. David Mamet's personal copy of his second play. The title-page bears his printed copyright notice for 1973, from his hometown of Flossmoor, Illinois. Heavily annotated throughout in his hand, with dialogue rewritten on the verso of the title page and on another page, and on the inside of both wrappers. Also bears a pencil sketch on the rear wrapper of what appears to be a set, presumably in his hand; as well as a separate laid-in mimeographed leaf on blue paper providing a rehearsal and performance schedule and the locations on the Goddard College campus where they would be held. The play was first performed in March of 1973 at Goddard College in Vermont, where Mamet was a student and taught. The original cast included Oscar-nominated actor William H. Macy, who was Mamet's student and frequent collaborator and who made his directorial debut with a 1975 version of the play. This is very much a working production copy, with Mamet making changes, striking out lines he didn't like, inserting new dialogue and noting new ideas as they occurred to him. From the estate of Fritzie Sahlins. Sahlins was a co-founder with her husband Bernie, of Second City Theater Troupe, and worked with Mamet on his first full-length play, *The Duck Variations,* one year earlier. This play was published much later as *Poet and the Rent* by Samuel French in 1981 as an acting edition and (adding a "The") as *The Poet and the Rent* by Grove Press in 1986 in the omnibus edition *Three Children's Plays*. Overall the most substantive, heavily annotated, and earliest playscript of Mamet's that we've seen. *OCLC* locates no copies, although the finding aid to Mamet's papers at the Ransom Center seems to indicate that they have a copy with corrections in an unknown hand.
