        Cold Cream Alley: A Collection of Poems by Joe Hendrick

      Unpaginated 9 x 8 softcover of Joe Hendricks's first printed poetry collection, together with eight art 13 x 12 portfolios containing two prints, and one portfolio containing a three-page musical composition, by: Joe Hendrick, Ramon Santiago, Robert Conge, Joe Matott, Charles W. Haas, Ray Mayo, Robert E. Smith, Julianna Furlong Williams, Lawrence M. Williams, and Gerry Niewood. Also includes single sheet with an introduction by Jacquelyne Schuman, and a photo of the ten contributors on the reverse. The name Cold Cream Alley comes from Rochester, New York's Cold Cream Building, in which Hendrick worked. The images included were created specially for this project, and the portfolios are their first appearance in print. An impressive example of multi-disciplinary creativity, typography, design, and artistic collaboration, similar to some of the productions of various artistic and literary collectives of the 50s, 60s, and 70s (the Beat Poets, Black Mountain Poets, etc.), but also to some of the fine press productions that would become popular somewhat later. Quite scarce - we found 4 copies in institutional collections, three of which are located in Rochester, one other copy offered for sale, and no records of sale at auction. Limited edition, #173 of 250. Hand-numbered and signed by Hendrick on title page, all portfolios hand-numbered and signed by contributors. Tiny spot on front of slipcase. Rochester: GM / DuBois Corp., 1973. Limited Edition. Collectible; Like New/Not Applicable.

        Port of Saints

      London, England: Covent Garden Press Limited/ Am Here Books, 1973 (1975). Limited First Edition. Hardcover in Slipcase. Very Fine/Very fine. The earliest, rarest edition of a key work by William S. Burroughs, the foremost author-prophet of the Beat Generation & beyond. As stated in Eric C. Shoaf's WSB Collector's Guide: "...this first edition was hardbound in a dust jacket and housed in a white slipcase. It consisted of 100 copies numbered and signed by Burroughs. Later editions by Blue Wind Press vary slightly in text and also lack the illustrations of (this) production. This was Burroughs' last written work in England before the return to America in the mid- seventies, and contains much material which was to lead to his first major work of the 1980s, Cities of the Red Night. Although dated 1973, the publication was not issued until 1975 due to labor and paper supply difficulties." (Section I, No. 28, pg. 40) Presented here is copy No. 73/100, hand-numbered & signed by WSB on limitation/colophon page. Additionally, WSB has hand-written on the title page: "For Don Kaufman/ Sorry this book is full/ of errors owing to the/ disorganization of the/ printers who were going/ into bankruptcy/ (signed) William S. Burroughs." Donald L. Kaufman (1927-2015) was a venerable professor of English at the University of Southern Florida and a major collector, particularly of Norman Mailer, about whom he wrote several distinguished studies. WSB appears to refer to co-publisher Covent Garden Press Limited, which is noted as the printer on copyright page, & thus offers insight into the nature of the "labor and paper supply difficulties" this production encountered. The illustrations noted by Shoaf as exclusive to this edition include photographs of WSB's young companion in London posing as characters in this text, and in the subsequent 1980s trilogy it anticipates. Also briefly noted in Maynard & Miles as not included in the bibliography due to its late release (pg. xxi). Among the rarest WSB collectibles, further & greatly enriched by the relatively lengthy & intimate inscription with second signature, & with significant association & provenance. In exceptionally very fine condition: Book with only a few small areas of faint ink smudging on white background of back cover, quite probably as issued; otherwise substantially pristine inside & out. Dust jacket in very fine condition with only very slight wear & a few tiny chips, gauges & closed tears at edges & corners of front, back cover & spine; moderate browning of blank inner surfaces. Slipcase in very fine condition with only tiny bits of wear at corners & upper back edge; light hand-markings near left bottom edge including reference to limitation made by previous seller or possibly publisher. One of 100 numbered copies signed by William S. Burroughs; additionally inscribed & signed by WSB to Donald L. Kaufman.

Quarto, original white laminated photographic boards. $3500.First edition of Petersen’s scarce first photobook, signed by him on the title page, with over 120 photogravures by this leading Swedish photographer whose frank “diarist approach, frequently directed at the fringes of society”(Parr & Badger), first emerged in this landmark work.Swedish photographer Anders Petersen first attracted international attention with this photo-essay on a Stockholm amusement park and later confirmed the acclaim with his photobook Café Lehmitz (1978). “Like Robert Frank, Petersen is drawn to those on life’s margins, a poet of the seedy and the subversive… His images possess… what Petersen describes as ‘a kind of poetical sadness” (Observer). In Gröna Lund, his outstanding inaugural work, Petersen early reveals that distinctive “diaristic approach, frequently directed at the fringes of society,” which has become his trademark (Parr & Badger I:231). With text by Jan Stolpe. Issued without dust jacket. See Open Book, 318. Images fine, very light edge-wear to boards. About-fine condition, scarce signed.

        Zelandiae Comitatus novissima tabula.Amsterdam, widow of Joachim Ottens and sons [or Reinier and Josua Ottens], [ca. 1724 or 1747]. Imperial folio (57 x 36.5 cm). Comprising 9 untrimmed engraved sheets (each 56.5 x 66 cm; plate size 46.5 x 53.5 cm) that, if assembled, would give a map image of about 139 x 159 cm. Modern half calf.

      - J. Groote, ed., Visscher-Roman kaart van Zeeland (1973), p. [7]; IKAR (4 copies); Koeman III, p. 88, item 153; V.d. Krogt, Advertenties 924, 928, 930, 943, 944. Magnificent large wall-map of Zeeland at a scale of about 1:42,000, known as the "Visscher-Roman" wall map, here as revised ca. 1724 by Reinier Ottens and published by the Ottens family. The map was originally produced in or shortly before 1655 by the Amsterdam engraver and map and atlas publisher Nicolaus Visscher I (1618-1679) and then or soon after published together with the Middelburg bookseller and publisher Zacharias Roman (1595-ca. 1675). Andries de Leth managed the firm for Visscher's widow and took it over in 1720. Around that time many of Visscher's plates were dispersed and the widow Ottens and sons must have acquired the Zeeland plates. They traded under that name from the death of Joachim Ottens, buried 28 June 1719, to the death of his widow, buried 6 February 1725. Reinier Ottens (1698-1750) revised the Zeeland map for publication with the plates in the present states, with new title-cartouches in three of the plates, each with the imprint of the widow Ottens and sons, so shortly before February 1725. Although no states are known with the imprint of Reinier and Josua Ottens, they advertised both the 9-sheet map and the 3 separately issued parts in 1747 and 1748, so they probably reprinted the maps without revising the plates in 1747.Each map is mounted on a stub, so that it can open flat. In fine condition, with only a small marginal smudge and occasional minor spots, and wholly untrimmed, preserving all of the deckles. The binding very good, with the corners slightly scuffed. A fine copy of a magnificent wall map of Zeeland, engraved in 1655 and here revised ca. 1724.

      - 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.

        The Mary Tyler Moore Show ("The Lars Affair"--The July 1973 Revised Script)

      1973. Original wraps. Near Fine. The July 1973 "Revised Production Script" of one of the great early episodes of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show". Approaching the midway point of this landmark comedy series (1970-1977), this episode, pitting the "Happy Homemaker" against a cuckolded Phyllis, was written by Ed. Weinberger --one of the show's principal creative forces-- and fires on all cylinders, with wonderful performances by Mary herself, Ted, Phyllis and Sue Anne Nivens. This script belonged to --and was lightly annotated by-- one of this episode's writing advisers, a woman who performed stand-up in Los Angeles in the 60s and 70s. The script is crisp and Near Fine in its purple wrappers, with typed yellow pages. Tall quarto, an uncommon example of original source material from the show many feel represents the very pinnacle of television.

        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 a 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 and 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).
