Mead A3a. “'A screaming comes across the sky.' One of the most famous opening lines in literature might as well refer to the novel it sets off —Gravity's Rainbow, Thomas Pynchon's masterpiece, marks an event in literary history whose significance readers have argued and will argue for a long time, but which nobody can afford to ignore. Published in 1973, it is often considered as the postmodern novel, redefining both postmodernism and the novel in general." (Literary Encyclopedia) "This is the war book to end them all." (Burgess 99). Winner of the National Book Award for 1974. An outstanding copy of the author's scarce second and finest novel.

      - Lettre autographe signée à sa chère Babeth. New York, 4 juin 1973 ; 2 pages in-4° sur 2 feuillets. Lettre passionnante de Brassaï a la conquête de l’Amérique : « Nous sommes rentrés si tardivement du midi à Paris que finalement je n’avais que 3 semaines pour préparer mes 2 expositions aux Etats-Unis (l’une dans le Corcoran – Musée, à Washington, le 1-er juin) aussi je n’avais pas un instant à perdre. Heureusement j’ai pu tout faire à temps et les photos sont bien arrivées (par la valise diplomatique) Nous avons passé 5 jours vraiment très agréables à Washington qui baigne dans une verdure luxuriante. J’aimais surtout le George-town avec ses petits jardins pleins de magnolia, de clématite, d’azalée, de rhododendrons. Nous habitions un hôtel en face de la Maison Blanche, et l’exposition fut vraiment un succès beaucoup de personnes sont venues de New York, de Chicago, et même de San-Francisco à l’inauguration, comme Ansel Adams le plus célèbre photographe vivant de l’Amérique, de Carmel (près de San-Francisco). Il y avait un diner pour 60 personnes dans le muée et j’ai vendu toutes mes photographies. (L’exposition va continuer dans d’autres villes Chicago, etc.). Je t’écris d’un bel appartement en face du Central Park qu’un ami a mis à notre disposition avec 4 domestiques espagnols. Hier soir (dimanche) il y avait une fête des Portoricains sur la Vth avenue. C’était aussi mouvementée et colorée que le carnaval de Rio. Vers le 15 nous irons probablement à San Francisco (après une exposition et la parution du Portofolio BRASSAÏ) et aussi à Los Angeles pour revoir mon vieil ami Henri Miller » Ansel Easton Adams (1902-1984) célèbre photographe américain connu pour ses photographies en noir et blanc de l’Ouest américain et principalement du parc national de Yosemite et de la Sierra Nevada.

      Fück, Die Arabischen studien, p. 104; P.M. Holt, Studies in the history of the Near East (1973), pp. 57-60; Schnurrer, p. 429. First edition of the first English Quran to be translated directly from the Arabic: a landmark not only in efforts to bring an accurate version of the Quran to the English-speaking world, but also in Western Quranic studies in general. It also includes Sale's 7-page note to the reader, with criticisms of earlier translations into English and other languages, his 187-page preliminary discourse bringing together a wealth of information about Islamic culture, and valuable scholarly footnotes, including material from the Islamic commentaries of al-Baydawi and al-Suyuti. Holt notes his "enlightened and objective attitude" in sharp contrast with most Western Arabists of his day or earlier: "His freedom from religious prejudice ..., his obvious conviction that Arabic writers were the best source of Arab history, and Muslim commentators the fittest to expound the Quran, marks an enormous advance ...". Sale's English translation remains highly regarded today.In fine condition and only slightly trimmed. The binding is rebacked and has several restorations, but is otherwise good and remains structurally sound. A landmark edition of the Qur'an and the first good English translation.

        Autograph Letter, Signed. With Signed photograph.

      New York, 1973. Typed letter from author P.G.Wodehouse at his Long Island, NY, home, February 1973, to a fan in Glasgow, Scotland. The author mentions a new book that he is writing, to be finished in the spring, which is most likely 'Batchelors Anonymous' which was published in October. Elegantly mounted, framed and glazed. Total size: 545 x 445 mm. P.G.Wodehouse 1881-1975, English comic novelist, short story writer, lyricist and playwright;wrote for the 'Strand' from 1905-1940. Prior to this he had written for the Strand's companion boy's magazine 'The Captain'. In the Jan.1916 issue he introduced 'Jeeves', the ever resourceful 'gentleman's gentleman', and the good-hearted young blunderer 'Bertie Wooster' of the Drones Club, thus creating two of the most famous and best loved characters in twentieth century literature. He created several other well known series and characters including Uncle Fred, Blandings Castle, and Mr. Mulliner, all appearing monthly in the Strand. Most of his works gently parodied the British aristocracy of the 1920s and 1930s and with passing decades, Wodehouse's picture of Edwardian England eventually became nostalgic. After difficult Wartime years he moved to the United States He took American citizenship in 1955 and was awarded a K.B.E late in life- in a BBC interview he claimed he had no further ambitions, now that he was knighted and had a waxwork of him in Madame Tussauds!

Many Grecian cities take credit for his birthright. None of his written fables are extant; but it is certain that his fables were popular in Athens during its most brilliant period of literary history. 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. Will Carter, himself a fine printer, has said that Hans Marderstieg, the founder of the Officina Bodoni, was "probably the finest pressman the world has ever seen or is ever likely to see.

        Captain Cook's Florilegium. A selection of engravings from the drawings of plants collected by Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander on Captain Cook's first voyage to the islands of the Pacific, with accounts of the voyage by Wilfrid Blunt and of the botanical explorations and prints by W.T. Stearn [with] Captain Cook's Florilegium: A note on its production by Joy Law, 1976

      London: Royal College, 1973. A fine copy.. Large folio, with 30 engravings; original black Nigerian goatskin and Japanese silk, housed in a protective buckram case. One of the finest botanical productions of all time. The Royal College of Art's printing of these original eighteenth-century copper-plates appeared in an edition of only 100 numbered copies on specially handmade paper, presented in a specially designed binding by Zaehnsdorf of London. The edition was fully subscribed long before it was completed.When Cook's first voyage returned to London, the original botanical drawings were made into detailed and accurate paintings under Banks' supervision, with reference to the collection of actual specimens. Following this they were engraved, and we know that Banks intended to oversee full publication of the collection of engravings. In fact, only a proof impression was made and the undertaking abandoned. The British Museum (Natural History) holds the original copper-engraved plates, as well as the drawings and specimens themselves, and a set of the proof impressions made from the copper-engravings.Between 1900 and 1905 lithographic copies were made of 318 of these proof impressions and published as "Illustrations of Australian Plants collected in 1770". The copper-plates themselves remained unused, until in 1960 it was decided that the Royal College of Art should print a selection of the most beautiful. The result, after thirteen years of planning and trials, was this splendid production, which for the first time showed the extraordinary strength of the images. Perfectly printed, rich impressions in strong black ink, they show the important botany of the Cook voyage to great advantage, and at the same time make it a matter for regret that no eighteenth-century edition appeared.

        The Botany and Chemistry of Hallucinogens

      Springfield, Illinois: Charles C. Thomas, 1973. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition. xxiii, 267pp. Purple cloth with gilt lettering. Very Good+ with foxed edges and a few of former owner's penciled notes, in slightly soiled and shelf-worn unclipped dust jacket. Binding a little strained from laid-in letters. A collaboration of two titans in the study of psychoactive chemicals, written before their better-known The Plants of the Gods. Schultes is known as the father of ethnobotany, and Hofmann as the father of LSD.Copy of Texas chemistry associate professor Albert R. Machel, author of such articles as "Cyanide Analyses of Peaches." Presentation copy from Schultes, one of only six copies he received from the publisher according to him in a April 24, 1973 letter on Harvard Botanical Museum letterhead; it is included with the book. Schultes writes, "Thank you for your letter of April 2 and for sending the peyote which we value very much for our exhibits." Next paragraph he briefly explains Native American peyote ingestion, and then thanks the former owner for his assistance before the signature line.Also included are three signed, postmarked, single-page letters from Hofmann in Switzerland in Sandoz Labs envelopes and stationary. The first letter from Nov. 6, 1970 thanks Machel for his letter and "four pounds of seeds of Sophora secunidflora," a nicotine-like poisonous plant that Texan Native Americans sometimes ingest before taking peyote. "The quantity you sent me will suffice for the first investigation," Hofmann writes, " I shall ask you again if I need more material," and thanks him for his collaboration.The second envelope, dated September 11, 1972 includes a photocopied typed letter from Hofmann to Schultes about the Sophora secundiflora analysis with Schultes' reproduced holograph along its bottom margin. The enclosed original letter is dated September 8th; in it Hofmann breaks down the results of Sophora, concluding that none of the alkaloids are known to be hallucinogenic, and therefore he is not pharmacologically examining the samples.The final letter from January 26, 1973 regards Machel's previous question about "a general procedure for the extraction of toxic principles from seeds." "No such general procedure exists," Hofmann answers, then briefly outlines some specific extraction procedures.A very special record of correspondence that includes interesting background information on the authors' researches of peyote and the culture associated with its use, spanning the psychedelic era from Sandoz Laboratories (where Hofmann co-discovered LSD in 1943) to the halls of Harvard to rural East Texas.

        Neruda: entierro y testamento

      "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; paperback in fine condition. A wonderful and rare document of a serious photobook.
