        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.l 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'.

        The Wicker Man (Post Production Script, September 1973)

      Pinewood Studios, London 1973 - Cutting and Continuity script for the 1973 film, "The Wicker Man," directed and written for the screen by Robin Hardy and starring Edward Woodward and Christopher Lee. An important and rare document that details a now-classic film that from the beginning experienced serious complications. The original film negatives were mistakenly destroyed, followed by years of spurious and unauthorized editing by various distributors (the film did not even screen in the US until 1975). Even today's "director's cut" is only roughly reconstructed from various existing prints, with a relatively long discourse regarding the origins of his island's culture and fruit by Lee's character, Lord Summerisle, still completely missing. This continuity represents the film's original, unexpurgated edit. The front wrapper reads "Printed in London / September 1973," and the film debuted in England in December of that same year, making this likely one of the earliest printed continuities, if not the first. Laid in is a cast and credits list that notes a running time of 86 minutes (contrasted with the most recent reconstruction, which runs 100 minutes). Green card wrappers, with credits on the title page for director-screenwriter Hardy and producer Peter Snell. 192 pages, long sheets, prong binding at the top edge. Very Good or better condition overall. Weldon 1983. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Sky and Earth: Variable Landscape

      Newark, VT: Janus Press, 1973. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Fine. 39 sheets of colored acetate and die-cut paper, in a folding cloth portfolio. 8 by 10 inches (roughly). In this wordless book (the only text is the title and publishing information, printed on the front pastedown), Van Vliet reinterprets the ideas in her landmark 1964 work, Sun, Sky, and Earth. In that book, flaps of various shapes and colors could be flipped open to create minimalist landscapes abstracted to simple shapes and colors. Some of the flaps included descriptive words. In this 'book', Van Vliet has abstracted not only the elements of landscape but the book itself. The 'flaps' are no longer attached to the binding, leaving the 'reader' (there is no text, but what else would we call the user of a book?) free to rearrange the sheets at will. One can even conjure a science fiction landscape of many suns, rising or setting in a sky of unearthly colors. Van Vliet's work in the 1960s and early 1970s is sometimes associated with the Fluxus Movement, and certainly this book, with its inherently random user experience, embodies some of those ideas, books have always exerted only loose control over their readers and they are experienced only in the imagination. It only took visual artists 15 centuries to work out what users of the codex have known all along. One of 100 unnumbered copies (see Ruth Fine, The Janus Press). A small limitation and given that institutions hold more than half of the print run, rather uncommon in commerce. First edition (first printing). A fine, complete copy.

        Le Couple aux mille perversions

      [éditions du Pas] 1973 - Nombreuses illustrations photographiques noir et blanc et couleurs. Jean-Pierre Bouyxou, auteur-éditeur [en fait Frank Verpillat et Daniel Asher, pour les Editions du Pas], 1973. In-8 broché, 15 x 21,5 cm., dos carré collé, couverture souple à rabats, 221 pp. Très rare roman pornographique illustré, diffusé dans le réseau des sex-shops. Les photos sont de Raphaël-G. Marongiu et l’on reconnaît parmi les modèles les comédiens Yves Collignon, Monica Swinn et Anna Watican. Journaliste, cinéaste underground, romancier, rédacteur de la mythique revue « Fascination », ami et modèle de Pierre Molinier, acteur chez Jess Franco et Jean Rollin, entarteur des commandos de Georges Le Gloupier (avec Noël Godin), Jean-Pierre Bouyxou a écrit ce dévastateur et très amusant brûlot anarchiste. Un certain Christophe de Molinier, obsédé de jouissances, entraîne avec lui une jeune femme qu’il a observée faire l’amour dans les toilettes d’un bar. Tous les deux dévoient un curé de campagne dans un final ahurissant dans lequel le prêtre, possédé d’une folie érotique, crache sur le Christ et s’offre à la sodomie : « Christophe se prit délicatement la pine en main, se coucha précautionneusement sur le dos du curé fornicateur et l’encula à sec. Le curé poussa un beuglement qui fit vibrer les vénérables murs de l’église dans leurs fondations plusieurs fois centenaires, et remua derechef le postérieur, pour bien prouver qu’il appréciait le va-et-vient du concombre musclé dans son anus. » Puis le curé blasphème en direction de la Vierge Marie et profane une vierge morte qui pourrit dans la fosse commune, au milieu des asticots. Le récit de Bouyxou, d’une noire et grinçante poésie, volontiers canularesque, à l’écriture soignée, tranche sur l’ensemble d’une production trop souvent desservie par de piètres et affamés polygraphes, perclus de lieux communs. La mention d’auteur-éditeur est fautive et Bouyxou découvrit à parution que les éditeurs avaient apposés son propre nom à l’œuvre, à la place d’un habituel pseudonyme. Le roman fut frappé d’une triple interdiction à la vente aux mineurs, à l’exposition et à la publicité (cf. Dictionnaires des livres et journaux interdits de Bernard Joubert, Editions du Cercle de la Librairie, 2007). La fragilité du brochage, la mauvaise qualité de la colle font qu’il est toujours très difficile de trouver cet ouvrage en bel état, car les pages se décollent le plus souvent (ce ne sont pas des cahiers cousus). Cet exemplaire est dans un remarquable état de neuf. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Nuriddin recorded the work (also under the nom-de-guerre "Lightnin' Rod") in 1973; no promotional copy for that recording is present here, leading us to assume that the book preceded the album by some months. Among hip-hop afficionados, Hustlers Convention (in its recorded version) is widely cited as one of the "lost masterpieces" of rap music, preceding Sugar Hill Gang's Rapper's Delight (generally hailed as the first true "rap" album) by some six years. In a 2014 profile of Nuriddin in The Guardian, critic Graeme Thomson calls Hustlers Convention ".a crucial but largely overlooked link in hip-hop's evolutionary chain. The genre's pioneers - Melle Mel, Grandmaster Caz, Fab 5 Freddy - knew it by heart. Grandmaster Flash played it at early block parties, and it was later sampled by the Beastie Boys, Wu Tang Clan and countless others.[the album is] a premonition of gangsta rap, a vivid depiction of ghetto life lived large, complete with shoot-em-up sound-effects."Indeed, both the cadence and the ethos of much early hip-hop is evident in Nuriddin's metrical six-line stanzas, in which one finds a clear link between the "toasting" tradition which preceded him and the rap tradition which followed. In the opening stanzas, for example, we encounter rhymes which could just as easily have been written and rapped by Big Bank Hank or Melle Mel : I've seldom lost,'cause my game was so boss,I mean I had my shit down pat, and I was runnin' through bitches, like rags to riches, 'cause that's where my heart was at Yes, I was a down stud's dreama hustler supreme, there wasn't no game that I couldn't play,and if I caught a dude cheatin'I would give him a beatin'and I might even blow 'em away! Though released by the music division of a major trade publisher (Harmony was a subsidiary of Crown), the book is surprisingly uncommon, with no others located in commerce (2014) and few copies in university special collections. We would suggest that copies in collectible condition, such as this one, are seldom-seen. A documentary of Nuriddin's life, also titled Hustlers Convention, has been scheduled for release in Spring, 2015, directed by Mike Todd and executive produced by rapper ChuckD. Paperback original. Octavo (20.5cm); illustrated card wrappers; 125, (2)pp; author portrait and promotional blurb at rear. Light shelfwear and rubbing to extremities, with wear to base of spine; unread, Very Good+ or better. [Attributes: First Edition]
