        Autograph musical manuscript signed of De temporum fine comoedia. Das Spiel vom Ende der Zeiten. Undated, but ca. 1970

      2 pp., being pages 143 and 144 of the full score. Large folio (416 x 318 mm.). Notated in ink and pencil on 30-stave music manuscript paper. Inscribed to Uli Märkle, a close collaborator and friend of the distinguished Austrian conductor Herbert von Karajan. & & Slightly worn. . De temporum fine comoedia (Play for the End of Time), a major work, was Orff's final musical statement. It was composed over a period of some ten years and had its first performance on August 20, 1973 at the Salzburg Music Festival under Herbert von Karajan with the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra. & & "The gestation of De temporum fine comoedia, which is the epitome of Orff’s theatrical work, began while he was working on Prometheus. The score to this ‘Spiel vom Ende der Zeiten’ was completed between 1970 and 1971, with texts taken from the Oracula sibyllina, an Orphic Hymn to Oneiros, and also from the Carmina Burana collection. Orff lends to a theological idea a theatrical form that was already present in Des Turmes Auferstehung: Origene’s ‘apokatástasis pánton’, namely the idea that the world returns to God with the consequence that all guilt is temporally finite. The vastness of this eschatological scenario feeds the visionary quality of this modern mystery play. And in the vision invoked by the Anachoretes one participates in the repentance of Lucifer, announced symbolically in the music by open 5ths to a blare of trumpets. There follows a transfiguring dematerialization of all musical parameters, then a canon for four viols. This symbolic mandala representing ‘Tà pánta Noûs’ (‘Everything is Spirit’) and closing with a reference to Anaxagoras, signifies both the end of the comoedia and of Orff’s creative career. " Alberto Fassone in Grove online& & We would like to thank Ms. Sabine Fröhlich of the Orff-Zentrum in Munich for her kind assistance in the identification of this manuscript.

        Silence: Lectures and Writings

      London: Calder and Boyars,, 1973. [Together with] M: Writings '67 - '72, [published in] Middletown, Connecticut [by] Wesleyan University Press [in] 1973, [and also John Collins's own copy of] The Modern Chess Primer [by] The Rev. E. E. Cunnington, [published in] London [by] George Routledge & Sons [in] 1922. Work 1: octavo. Printed card wrappers, as issued. Work 2: quarto. Original black cloth, titles to spine in white and gilt, and to upper board in blind, pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. Work 3: small octavo. Original cloth backed boards, titles to boards printed in red and black. All housed in a brown cloth chemise and slipcase. Work 1: some stains to covers and edges, an excellent copy. Work 2: extremities faintly rubbed, an excellent copy in the nicked but clean dust jacket. Work 3: covers worn, pages tanned and brittle, but holding together well, overall a good copy. A fascinating inscribed presentation set linking two giants of their respective fields, the musician John Cage and the chess teacher John Collins. Cage attended Collins' Hawthorne Chess Club in Brooklyn, which brought avant garde artists like Marcel Duchamp and Cage together with chess professionals like Hermann Helms "the dean of American chess" and Bobby Fischer, chess prodigy, youngest ever World Champion, and Collins's student. Cage's inscriptions to works 1 & 2 show a warm relationship; respectively: "For John, from John. (the Christmas '73 goes without saying)" and "To John Collins, with friendship and admiration, John Cage, May 1973". Cage has written Collins into the table of contents of work 2, directing the reader to p. 211, where Cage has mentioned Collins in the text, "Jack Collins, brilliant mind, spastic paraplegic, Bobby Fischer's teacher. No one in the world of chess is as beloved. Frequently laughing, he gets around the apartment by riding small tricycle. People who don't play complain chess takes too much time. Given the opportunity to study with Collins, it'd be a waste of time not to." The Modern Chess Primer (11th edition) was Collins's own, and contains his address stamp. Works 1 & 2, which offer great insight into Cage's philosophy of music and of life, are a second reprint and a first edition, first impression, respectively.

        TO THE WAR WITH WAUGH. With an introductory Memoir by Christopher Hollis and illustrations by Peter MacKarell

      Whittington Press. London. 1973. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION. First edition. 4to. (11 x 7.6 inches). 32 line drawings by MacKarell, some full and double page. One of an unspecified number of the total edition of 600 copies, all numbered and signed by St. John, that was bound in full off-white sheep with gilt lettering to the spine and a gilt stamped illustration, reproducing one of the drawings in the text, to the front board. The binding is by Hunter and Foulis Ltd, who bound the standard cloth edition, with their gilt stamp to the inner rear board. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Housed in the original beige patterned paper covered slip case. The glue used along the top edge of the tipped in portrait frontis has bled through the plate and left some light offsetting to the title page opposite, otherwise a clean and bright copy throughout. Some minor scuffing and bumping to the spine but overall a very near fine copy. This copy is numbered in Roman numerals, No. II, but this special delux leather issue is not mentioned in the colophon. A review from the contemporary issue of the Evelyn Waugh newsletter (Volume 7, Number 2 - Autumn 1973) does list this delux option, with cloth bound copies being advertised at £5.25 and Leather bound at £25. Because of the large price difference it is unlikely that many copies were bound in this way and in over twenty years of bookdealing this is the first that I have come across, despite having had several copies of the cloth bound limited edition. St. John served in the same Royal Marines Regiment as Evelyn Waugh during World War Two. They participated in basic training, prepared to defend the Cornwall area, and joined the Dakar attack. Waugh related many of these activities in Put out More Flags and Men at Arms. We learn the prototype of Ritchie-Hook, the location of Kut-al-lmara House, and the identification of Inverary with the Isle of Mugg. There are some interesting personal revelations, e.g., Waugh's lecture to his men about cursing, his desire to be fighting the Russians in Finland, and his fear of being treated by a Soviet woman doctor.

They were widely revered by such notables as Socrates and Plato.' One of the greatest of all classical works, presented by one of the greatest presses of the twentieth century.

Those of us in his wake owe him a debt that can never be paid." Jonathan Kellerman. Signed by Author. 1st Edition.

        Dance Hall of the Dead (Signed)

      New York: Harper & Row, 1973. First edition / First printing.. Hardcover.. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket.. Octavo. SIGNED by the author on the title page. Hillerman&#39;s third novel, and second mystery featuring Navajo tribal detective Joe Leaphorn. Winner of the Edgar Award for Best Mystery Novel of the Year. Hillerman&#39;s success reinvigorated the detective form and opened it to a new generation of writers featuring detectives who not only plied their trades in different locations but brought to their jobs a much wider variety of qualifications than the tough-but-sensitive he-man types of earlier years. ~This is a clean and tight copy which is otherwise fine, but for some slight separation of the spine cloth from the binding at the top and some very faint spotting to top page edges. Dust jacket is clean overall (and would probably be considered &#39;fine&#39; by most), with just a bit of toning to rear panel and spine, and a touch of rubbing and wear to extremities. ~Overall, a beautiful copy with bold signature by Hillerman on the title page.

        Autograph Letter Signed [Author of Norwood or A Tale of Village Life in New England; Seven Lectures to Young Men; Evolution and Religion; Life of Jesus the Christ; and Yale Lectures on Preaching, etc...]

      Peekskill, NY: Henry Ward Beecher, 1973. First edition. Loose_leaf. Very Good +. A Very Good + Autograph Letter Signed from the popular, influential, and controversial Congregationalist Preacher Henry Ward Beecher. Henry Ward Beecher (1813 &#150; 1887) was a highly popular, and highly controversial preacher, author, editor, and lecturer, an ardent and outspoken abolitionist, proponent of women&#39;s suffrage, supporter of Darwin&#39;s Theory of Evolution, and an advocate of temperance. Not only did Beecher speak against slavery, he took action against it by, for example, raising funds to purchase guns for those opposing slavery in Kansas and Nebraska, which rifles became known as "Beecher&#39;s Bibles". Beecher drew crowds of thousands to his weekly sermons and to his lecture tours and Abraham Lincoln said of Beecher that no one in history had "so productive a mind". After attending one of Beecher&#39;s sermons, Mark Twain described the preacher as "sawing his arms in the air, howling sarcasms this way and that, discharging rockets of poetry and exploding mines of eloquence, halting now and then to stamp his foot three times in succession to emphasize a point." The letter offered here, dated "Aug 4 &#39;73" and sent from Peekskill, New York (Beecher&#39;s home) to a fly trap manufacturer, occupies both sides of a single sheet of paper (measuring approximately 6" x 5") with a single horizontal fold for mailing. (The fold has cause a split across the letter very neatly taped across the letter&#39;s recto.) In the letter, Beecher writes: "Gentlemen / Have you any agency / for your fly traps in New York / City? - Why do you not / advertise them? - Say in / the Christian Union? // The one you sent me for / trial has done unexpectedly / well, and I would like / to get others. One in each / living room, in summer / would[?] go far to keep down / this nuisance [illegible]. // I find, for their effective working / that a [illegible] allowance of [illegible] / strong [illegible] , and water so / as to give out a smell, is / very useful." Beecher then signs the letter "Truly yours / Henry Ward Beecher". An excellent Henry Ward Beecher letter, dealing with a concern of daily life, offering advice on the use of fly traps, cleverly endorsing the product&#39;s performance and seeking a new advertiser for the Christian Union, one of the leading religious newspapers of the day, edited, of course, by Henry Ward Beecher. Letters from this important and influential Preacher are quite uncommon the market. An excellent AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY HENRY WARD BEECHER. QUITE SCARCE.
