        [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, who 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. .

      New York: Richard C. Higgins and The Rembrandt Players, 1973. Very good. 4to. Red brad-bound cardboard covers. Wear to yapp edge. Faint toning internally. Near fine overall. An original script of a play from the editor and publisher of Something Else Press. Described by the Fluxus writer as "a lickety split mystery,” DEATH & THE NICKEL CIGAR is a philosophical, Dada-esque/Theatre of the Absurd-inspired production, but otherwise remains a rather elusive work in the Higgins oeuvre. DICK HIGGINS: A Bio/Bibliography(Threadneedle Editions, 1979) lists the title under 1972 as an "ephemeral publication," but provides no details. And Richard Kostelanetz (DICTIONARY OF THE AVANT GARDE pp. 100-101) mentions the work (by title only) as representative of one of Higgins' "five methods" - "Expressionism" ("reflects personality or personal experience"), but again provides no elaboration. It does not appear to have ever been officially published and it is unclear if the work was even ever performed. The title page directs inquiries to Jerry Benjamin, performance artist and poet, who often directed in the experimental theater community (including other works of Higgins'). OCLC located seven copies of the script. A scarce and curious work from this prolific Fluxus figure.

Typical but in this case barely noticeable sunning to the very edges of the boards; unknown name, address, and date on the front pastedown completely covered by the inside flap of the dustwrapper. The date "March 1973" would make this a very early copy of the first edition as the publication date for this title was announced as 7 May 1973. The dustwrapper is complete but for a very tiny chip at the top front corner. The only other defects to the dustwrapper are mild wear to the head of the spine and a vertical crease down the inside front flap. Near Fine in a Near Fine dustwrapper. A very attractive copy.

        The Complete Greed

      New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc.,, 1973. A reconstruction of the film in 348 still photos following the original screenplay. Plus 52 production stills. Compiled and Annotated with a Foreword by Herman G. Weinberg. Quarto. Printed card wrappers, as issued. Portrait frontispiece, and numerous black and white photographs in the text throughout. Extremities rubbed, creases to spine and front wrapper, some light marks, internally clean. A very good copy. Presentation copy inscribed by Paul McCartney of the first paperback edition (originally published in the preceding year by Arno Press) of the book that reconstructed from film stills Erich von Stroheim's infamously butchered and lost ten hour magnum opus (described in such terms as the "Holy Grail" and the "Magna Carta" of film) that was only ever shown as the two-and-a-half hour film Greed in 1924. The inscription, on the half-title, is from Paul McCartney to Bernard Herrmann, "To Benny from Paul - you'll have to supply the score for yourself - I'm sure you'll have no trouble. I hope we can work together again." Herrmann was a classical musician who also pioneered into electronic music; the Beatles reputedly based the strings in Eleanor Rigby on Herrmann's famous strings for Alfred Hitchcock's film Psycho. Herrmann met and befriended McCartney, and helped him with with the scoring of The Family Way. This copy includes, laid in, a lengthy contemporary review of the book clipped from a magazine.
