        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.* 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'.

        Bröderna Lejonhjärta [The Brothers Lionheart].

      Large square 8vo. Original pictorial boards with wrap-around design, protected by repeat dustwrapper; pp. [ii], 3-227 + [i]; with stunningly detailed black-and-white illustrations throughout including numerous glorious double-page spreads; a fine and exceptional copy protected by a similarly pristine dustwrapper; remarkably scarce signed. First edition, in Swedish. This copy is neatly inscribed in ink by Astrid Lindgren to the title-page. This is a dark and compelling fantasy novel for children by the author of Pippi Longstocking. Despite, some would assert, the challenging nature of its content which includes death, disease, and betrayal, these subjects are deftly balanced by lighter topics such as platonic love, loyalty and hope. The book was an international bestseller which was translated into a total of 46 languages. It was also made into a feature film, in 1977, and later, a stage musical. It is currently optioned for another film version, this time in English.

        Four articles documenting the birth of the personal computer industry in the United States. 1. [Advertisement:] 'The totally new and the very first - Mini-computer ... Scelbi Computer Consulting, Inc.,' p. 154 in QST, March 1974. 8vo, pp. 176. 2. TITUS, Jonathan A., 'Build the Mark 8 minicomputer,' pp. 29-33 in Radio-Electronics, July 1974. 4to, pp. 100. 3. ROBERTS, H. Edward & YATES, William. 'Altair 8800 minicomputer, Part I,' pp. 33-38 in Popular Electronics, January, 1975. 4to, pp. 112. 4. ROBERTS, H. Edward & YATES, William. 'Altair 8800 minicomputer, Part II,' pp. 56-58 in Popular Electronics, February, 1975.

      The first announcements of the first three personal computers marketed in the United States, the Scelbi-8H, Jon Titus' Mark-8, and the MITS Altair 8800. "The Altair is widely recognized as the spark that ignited the microcomputer revolution" (Wikipedia). Although these were preceded by the French Micral, sometimes described as the first personal computer, the Micral was only available fully assembled (and was four times as expensive as its US rivals which were sold in kit form), and was used almost exclusively for industrial applications - its handbook stated that "Micral's principal use is in process control. It does not aim to be a universal mini-computer." "In the same mid-1973 time-frame as the Micral made its debut, Nate Wadsworth and Bob Findley, founders of the brand new Scelbi Computer Consulting (SCientific ELectronic BIological, pronounced "sell-bee"), of Milford, Connecticut, designed the 8008-based Scelbi-8H microcomputer, which is now recognized as being the first microprocessor-based computer kit to hit the market ... The first market announce for the Scelbi-8H was a tiny advertisement in the back of the March 1974 issue of QST, an amateur radio magazine. According to the advertisement, Kit prices for the new Scelbi-8H mini-computer start as low as $440! Actually with 1K of RAM the price was some $500. Scelbi-8H was based on the Intel first 8-bit microprocessor - 8008 [which] was capable of addressing 16Kb of memory and started the design of the first series of microcomputers" ( Scelbi.html). "The first "magazine project" microcomputer, called the Mark-8, was designed by Jonathan A. Titus and appeared in the July 1974 issue of Radio-Electronics. It used the Intel 8008 microprocessor and had 256 bytes of memory. Enthusiasts could buy plans from the magazine for a nominal amount, or a substantially complete kit of parts for $350; sales were insignificant" (Roy A. Allan, A Bibliography of the Personal Computer, p. 78). "Radio-Electronics sold 10,000 copies of the blueprints and about 2500 orders were received for the boards. The first home computer, with almost no memory and no means of storing its programs after use, was probably assembled by between one and two thousand people. It spawned the earliest hobbyist clubs but it still looked more like a prototype than a real machine" (Brian Winston, Media, Technology and Society: A History, p. 233). "Today, ... a Mark-8 is one of the most valuable and sought-after of all historical micros. "It was the misfortune of both the Scelbi-8H and the Mark-8 to stumble and fall in the darkness just before dawn. Only a few months later, a New Mexico-based company called MITS - Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems - could not cope with the orders it received when it introduced the Altair microcomputer. "The January issue of Popular Electronics featured the Altair 8800 developed by Ed Roberts of MITS - although the unit on the magazine's cover was only a painted, empty case. It used the Intel 8080 microprocessor, and basic memory was only 256 bytes. A 100-pin bus with 16 slots facilitated expansion of the system with additional memory and peripherals. Kit price by mail order was $397. The Altair 8800 was a startling success, and a flood of orders created severe delivery problems at MITS; in theory, the same computer was available assembled and tested for $621, but customers who ordered a finished unit waited for months while the factory caught up" (Allan, pp. 78-9). "Like the Mark-8, [the Altair] was not a very accessible device, but it sold well to enthusiasts, people who knew enough about electronics to make the 8800 work, and it spawned a whole new world - more clubs sprang up; the first computer shop opened in Los Angeles in July 1975; the first home computing magazine Byte appeared in August; and the first world Altair Computer Conference was held in Albuquerque in March 1976" (Winston, p. 233). "The January 1975 article for Altair excited a Harvard University undergraduate named Bill Gates, and his good friend Paul Allen, and the duo contacted Roberts to write a BASIC language interpreter for the machine. Roberts show his interest, but ... in fact Gates and Allen had no BASIC yet to offer. When they called Roberts to follow up on the letter he expressed his interest, the two started work on their BASIC interpreter, using a self-made simulator for the 8080 on a PDP-10 minicomputer. They figured they had only several weeks before someone else beat them to the punch, and once they had a version working on the simulator, Allen flew to MITS in Albuquerque to deliver the program, Altair BASIC, on a paper tape. The first time it was run, it displayed Altair Basic, then crashed, but that was enough for them to join. The next day, they brought in a new paper tape and it ran. The first program ever typed in was "10 print 2 +2" and after typing "run" it typed back the correct answer: "4". Allen was offered a position by Roberts as the Director of Software and the only member of the software department; Gates, who was then still a student, started working for MITS part-time after he left school. Later, Gates and Allen would leave MITS to begin a company called Micro-Soft. "The January 1975 article would also inspire the creation of the Homebrew Computer Club by a group of Altair 8800 enthusiasts, and from this club emerged twenty-three computer companies, including Apple Computer" ( ModernComputer/Personal/Altair.html). 4to (277 x 213 mm), pp. 102. Four complete issues in original decorative printed wrappers (address label on front cover of the last three issues).

      Picador / Pan Books Ltd., London 1973 - Octavo (19.75cm); illustrated wrappers; xii, 116pp. Inscribed by the author on the title page: "This copy is for Tom McGuane / Richard Brautigan / July 16, 1973." Text edges slightly tanned, mild wear and creasing to wrapper extremities, with vertical reading crease to left edge of front wrapper; Very Good. Housed in a custom quarter leather and marbled paper clamshell case. A well-read copy of Brautigan's first novel, bearing a typically subdued inscription to one of his closest friends. Tom McGuane was an on-again, off-again roommate of Brautigan's during the early years he lived in Bolinas, California. Over a nearly 20 year period, the two men would travel together and live near each other between California, Montana, and Key West. They ran in many of the same creative and artistic circles, both men admiring each other's work. McGuane would write a lengthy and generous review of an omnibus edition of Brautigan's work (Delacorte, 1970) in the February 15, 1970 issue of The New York Times Book Review. In William Hjortsberg's exhaustive 2012 biography of Brautigan, he goes on at length to describe how deeply Brautigan admired McGuane - idolized him, even - as an author, as a man, and as a husband. Books inscribed by Brautigan to close, personal friends, are uncommon. Not in Barber. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Gravity's Rainbow

      FIRST EDITION UNCORRECTED PROOF New York: Viking, 1973. EXTREMELY RARE UNCORRECTED PROOF OF THE FIRST EDITION of Pynchon's masterpiece, one of the most celebrated works of modern literature; winner of the National Book Award for 1974. "Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow (1973) is a tour de force in 20th-century literature. In exploring the dilemmas of human beings in the modern world, the story, which is set in an area of post-World War II Germany called 'the Zone,' centres on the wanderings of an American soldier who is one of many odd characters looking for a secret V-2 rocket that will supposedly break through the Earth's gravitational barrier when launched. The narrative is filled with descriptions of obsessive and paranoid fantasies, ridiculous and grotesque imagery, and esoteric mathematical and scientific language. For his efforts Pynchon received the National Book Award, and many critics deemed Gravity's Rainbow a visionary, apocalyptic masterpiece" (Britannica).The uncorrected proof is famously rare: Viking once confirmed that no proofs had been made; in recent years, however, a handful have surfaced.New York: Viking Press, (1973). Octavo, original wrappers; custom box. Fading to spine and top edge or wrappers; a handful of pages with marks in the margin, most likely by a reviewer; crayon "swirl" on blanks at rear. A rare copy of the earliest form of one of the most important American novels of the century. Very Good.

        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. 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. A fine copy.
