        [Broadside Program]: de l'ame pour l'ame (of the soul for the soul) An Evening Honoring the first true poet and seer Arthur Rimbaud 20 Octobre 1854 10 Novembre 1891

      [New York: Gotham Book Mart?. 1973]. First. First edition. Single blue folio leaf printed on the recto only. Fine. Line portrait drawing of Rimbaud by Smith at the top of the sheet above the text. The text lists the evening's program, along with a quote from Rimbaud: "The poet makes himself a seer by long, gigantic, and rational derangement of the senses. All forms of love, suffering, and madness. He searches himself. He exhausts all poisons in himself and keeps only their quintessences..." Also mentions: "special appreciation to the Wartoke Concern, Robert Mapplethorpe, Dennis Florio, Sharon Ensko, Sam Wagstaff and Gotham Book Mart." A very rare program from one of Patti Smith's earliest performances, predating her first album by two years. The first of three performances in honor of the anniversary of Rimbaud's death (also known as "Rock-n-Rimbaud"), it took place on the roof of Le Jardin, the gay disco in the Hotel Diplomat on November 4, 1973. Smith, dressed in an evening dress and feather boa, sang and recited her own works, as well as songs by Kurt Weil and Hank Ballard, backed up by Bill Elliot and future Patti Smith Group guitarist Lenny Kaye (only the second time that Smith and Kaye performed together). Rare. Not in OCLC. .

        The Sermon on the Mount from the Gospel of St. Matthew, Chapters 5, 6, 7

      Worcester, MA: Achille J. St. Onge, 1973. 55pp. The text is printed with large ornamental initials in red by Joh. Enschedé en Zonen. In a striking designer binding by Stephen Conway, evoking ancient wood and stone. Conway writes that his bindings "have a tactile quality, in keeping with the three dimensional qualities of the book," and "a sort of earthy, minimalist look, hinting at the content." The central panel of the covers is comprised of plinth with three steps, covered in parchment stained with tones of copper and bronze. In the center is a cross cut from vellum. The four surrounding panels are covered with hand-painted paste paper patterned with wood grain, sealed with a matte wax finish. The panels are slightly separated, revealing underlays of black text between them. Conway also painted the endpapers with textural shades of brown and black, giving them the appearance of wood and bark. The spine is gilt-titled mahogany morocco. Following his belief that the box in which a book is housed is part of the overall work, and serves to enhance the viewer's experience, the book sits in a felt-lined compartment between the steps of a larger three-level plinth covered in hand-painted parchment. Conway was named a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in 2000, and his work is held in collections worldwide, including the National Library of Scotland and The British Library. He is the current President of Designer Bookbinders. Extremely fine. (2 1/2 by 1 3/4; 64x43mm).

It was ‘the thing most in fashion;’ people were ‘mad after it,’ he believed ‘because only two hundred were printed.’ [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Neruda: entierro y testamento

      Inventarios Provisionales, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria 1973 - "In September 1973, Fina Torres, a photojournalist active in Venezuela at that time, was in Santiago during the coup that overthrew the government of the Unidad Popular. She photographed the damage done by the artillery to the facade of the Palacio de la Moneda, the armed soldiers in the streets, and other unsettling scenes of everyday life at the time: the cleaning of painted slogans from the walls, people lining up to buy food, the surveillance of the embassies, and the anguished seriousness of people waiting outside the morgue. Photographs of similar scenes can be found in the photobook Chili September 1973 by Koen Wessing, one of whose images is virtually identical to another taken by Torres. Both photographed a dark-haired girl standing at the door of the nourgue and showing the ID photo of a soldier. Torres decided to repeat the image to show more clearly the features of the young man who had disappeared, and Wessing did the same. Ten days after the coup, the poet Pablo Neruda died in a clinic in Santiago. Torres photographed the funeral procession, which also laid to rest the Unidad Popular and a whole era of leftist aspirations. The procession turned into a demonstration, in spite of the menacing presence of numerous armed soldiers. Fina Torres left a testimony of the vigil held around the dead body of Neruda. As she racalls, she was "the only photographer in the writer's residence on the day of his death." The house had been entered and sacked by the soldiers, an event almost prophesied in the lines "Traitor / generals: / behold my dead house" from España en el Corazon. The photos show empty shelves, ashes from the auto-da-fé, open closets, flooded rooms, and other signs of plunder and destruction - images of the desolation that the deceased poet's relatives, also captured by Torres' camera, seem not to notice" Horacio Fernandez in The Latin American Photobook, p 102. Text in Spanish: Sarmiento Alvaro. 47 BW ills by Torres Fina cm 14x19; pp. 152; 48 BW ills.; paperback in fine condition. A wonderful and rare document of a serious photobook.

        [Manuscript]: In This Corner: 40 Boxing Titleholders Tell Their Own Stories. [Published title]: In This Corner: Forty World Champions Tell Their Stories

      New York: Simon & Schuster. (1973). First. Bound manuscript. Introduction by Muhammad Ali. Quarto. Unpaginated. Typed carbon copies on pink and yellow carbon paper. Contemporary full cloth stamped in gilt with the title and author and: "Original Manuscript. March 16, 1973. To Sally... With Love." Dampstain mostly visible only on the front fly, a single word also on the front fly, else very good or better. Inscribed on the title page at a later date: "To Joe McMahon from Muhammad Ali 6-4-89." The carbon manuscript displays corrections in type and some penciled corrections, including the addition of Sugar Ray Robinson to the contents and a typed-in addition of Jose Torres. A cursory comparison to the printed book reveals a multitude of changes from this manuscript version. Interviews with Jack Dempsey, Mickey Walker, Pete Herman, Gunboat Smith, Fidel LaBarba, Tommy Loughran, Jack Sharkey, Rocky Graziano, Jake LaMotta, Carmen Basilio, Joe Louis, Willie Pep, Henry Armstrong, Sugar Ray Robinson, Jose Torres, Emile Griffith, Floyd Patterson, Archie Moore, and several others. The recipient of the book was Sally Drell, whom the author referred to in the acknowledgments: "And finally my thanks to Sally Drell, for coming into my life... and for bringing with her the title for this book." Joe McMahon is presumably a collector who sought out Ali at a later date. Regarded by many to be among the best books on boxing, this is a unique copy. .

        Skin Summer

      Oval Books 1973 - GRACIE AMBER (DEAN KOONTZ penname) - SKIN SUMMER (book was originally published under the "Ann Griffin" penname), copyright 1970, published by Oval in 1973 (originally published by Cameo in 1970). This book is one of a number of 30 or so books that Dean Koontz wrote for Cameo books early in his career under various pennames (like Linda Mitchell or Leonard Chris), and one book he actually published under his own name (Bounce Girl). Dean Koontz has since disavowed and otherwise denied having ever written such books (besides Bounce Girl which was published under his own name and the Leonard Chris book "Hung"), but the evidence is undisputable: The Library of Congress confirms that Gerda Ann Koontz (Dean's wife) holds the copyrights to this book. "Gracie" is one of the five names listed in the dedication of the gothic romance "Demon Child" (which Koontz wrote under the penname of Deanna Dwyer). All five of the first names listed in the dedication of "Demon Child" have turned out to be pseudonyms that Dean had used for this particular "Adult" literature. In an article written by Dean Koontz entitled "Dean's Drive" in the sci-fi fanzine Energumen #8 (6/71), Dean Koontz admitted to writing 30 of these books in 1970 (including "Share The Warm Flesh" and "Flesh Wager" - this book), along with Pig Society and The Underground Lifestyles Handbook (both of which were also published by the same publisher, Cameo books in 1970). One of the titles that Dean Koontz admits to having written ("Thirteen and Ready") was written under the penname of Ann Griffin. In an early sci-fi fanzine, Beabohema #8 (1970), Dean Koontz again talked about writing these books. The authors initials (A.G.) are simply Dean's wife's initials in reverse. One of the Ann Griffin cameo books "Protest Ball," lists the author's address as Harrisburg, Pennsylviania (where Dean and his wife were living in 1970). Finally, in Dean Koontz's writing how-to book "How to Write Popular Fiction" (1972), he refers to these books and specifically to the Ann Griffin penname. Book has no vertical spine creasing, no spine lean, no cover creases, no soiling or staining to covers, no former owner markings or used bookstore markings inside, no missing pages, couple of creased page corners, pages are flat and tight, pages are not age yellowing, remainder mark (cut mark) at bottom page edge near spine), almost no edge wear, no color rubbing wear to covers, slight spine sun yellowing. Overall a FINE- book of this rare 1970s Dean Koontz pen name book. I have a number of other U.S. and U.K. Dean Koontz 1st printing hardcover/ paperback/magazine appearances up for sale.

Introduces Paul Christopher. 20th Century Crime and Mystery Writers says," The Miernik Dossier is something of a masterpiece, a novel of espionage that succeeds at every ambitious level the author attempts and reverberates with possibility. The narrative is carried solely by documents--the reports of various agents, their debriefings, letters, bugged telephone conversations, comments, diaries--and concerns a group of disparate people of several nationalities, all of whom are in one way or another involved with espionage." Further in their glowing report they say, "The Miernick Dossier is indeed a dossier, but demonstrates an artfulness and meaning that its documentary authenticity suggests without belaboring; it is truly a remarkable book, one of the finest novels of espionage in recent years.

        The Samuelson Sampler.

      Thomas Horton and Company, Glen Ridge, New Jersey 1973 - First edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. In very good condition. Signed and dated by the author on the title page. Paul Samuelson is one of the developers of both neo-Keynesian and neoclassical economics, the latter of which still dominates mainstream economics. He was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for having written considerable parts of economic theory, and he is one of the ten Nobel Prize winning economists still signing the Economist's statement opposing the Bush tax cuts. One of Samuelson's many novel contributions was that he generalized and applied mathematical methods developed for the study of thermodynamics to the field of economics. His inspiration for doing so came, in part, from his mentor, polymath Edwin Bisdwell Wilson who was a former Yale student of the founder of chemical thermodynamics, Willard Gibbs. Samuelson, therefore, is a successful example of interdisciplinarity, and he combined these ideas in his magnum opus Foundations of Economic Analysis (1947).
