        BETTE DAVIS / MISS MOFFAT (1974)

      1974 - Vintage original 22 x 14" (55 x 35 cm.), window card, USA. Bette Davis, Dody Goodman, Anne Francine, Nell Carter, dir: Joshua Logan; Wlksm Logan and Brown. Very rare theatre poster for the ill-fated musical version of Emlyn William's The Corn is Green. Bette Davis scored highly with an Academy Award nomination playing the repressed but driven school teacher in the 1945 film. It seemed like an excellent source for a musical, and many of the tops in theatre were engaged to make this a success. The critics panned it, however, and Bette -- at a time when she was finding it difficult to find work -- lost her nerve. She cited a back injury and left the show, it closing immediately. The show was fraught with problems from the start, and though scheduled to go to Boston and Los Angeles, it ran just two weeks, opening and closing in Philadelphia. A cast recording was made. This very rare poster does not indicate its theatre, but was for those very few aforementioned performances. There is a pinhole in each of the four corners. JUST ABOUT FINE

        The Killer Angels

      1st Edition New York: David McKay, 1974. FIRST EDITION of Michael Shaara's Pulitzer-prize winning novel about the battle of Gettysburg. "Reflecting on an extraordinary experience with his family visiting the battlefield at Gettysburg, Michael became obsessed with telling the story of that momentous event through the eyes of the main characters themselves, something that had never been done. After seven years, the manuscript for The Killer Angels was completed... To Michael's disappointment, The Killer Angels was rejected by the first fifteen publishers who saw the manuscript. Finally, in 1973, it was bought by the small independent publisher, The David McKay Company, who was subsequently bought by Random House... [The] novel received very little attention, and mixed reviews, thus it was a shock to both Michael and the literary community when the announcement was made that The Killer Angels had been awarded the 1975 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction" (Jeff Shaara).New York: David McKay, 1974. Original blue cloth, original dust jacket. A superb copy, rare in this condition. Fine / Fine.

        Some Memories of Drawings...

      New York: Atlantis Editions, 1974. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, ONE OF 20 PRESENTATION COPIES (out of a total edition of 120), signed by O'Keeffe and the book's designer Leonard Baskin. AN EXTRAORDINARY COPY: Given by O'Keeffe's long-time agent Doris Bry to her friend and noted psychiatrist Dr. Lucie Jessner. With letters from Bry to Jessner discussing O'Keeffe's health and the origins of this book, with proofs of the pre-publication text and proof photos for some of the plates in the book. In a typed signed letter in this collection dated December 1, 1972, Doris Bry writes to Lucie Jessner about the origins of this book, "Some Memories of Drawings":"You probably don't remember -- but when I did the big O'K Drawings portfolio (which you have) -- and which has ten drawings -- I also intended to do a second volume of another ten -- which I never did -- and probably will never be able to do. -- But I also wanted to do a little and inexpensive paperback of the 20 drawings available to anyone -- with perhaps a little something by O'K about them -- and a one page biography and bibliography in the back -- well designed and well printed, etc. -- about 8 x 6 or 6 x 5" -- something like that."Now O'K has given me her comments -- text for the first ten -- she forgot about the second ten -- and I enclose a Xerox [included here]. -- If it isn't imposing on you, I'd be interested in your reaction -- if you have time to react. (This is text for the ten you have)"I feel one needs 20 to make a booklet that can be bound neatly -- and that ten doesn't work physically -- also it would be interesting if she would do another ten."This was just given to me as a fait accompli -- we did not talk about it or work on it -- Some of the material under I (the first two pages of her text) -- she has said to me at times somewhat differently -- and perhaps better -- and I am tempted to try to get her to expand it a little -- but then I also think it might be best just to take it as it is. --"as a reader would you be interested in this little book? or is it too sparse? or???"In 1973, Bry did succeed in getting the book produced and the result is a masterful collection of drawings O'Keeffe created between 1915 and 1963; illustrated with 21 charcoal and pencil drawings reproduced on Arches Silkscreen in 300-line screen offset lithography, each laid into a lettered folded leaf of Arches paper. Most drawings are accompanied by O'Keeffe's commentary -- her first writing intended for book publication -- explaining the details, setting, or inspiration for each work. Elegantly designed by Leonard Baskin and printed at The Meadows Press.??Also noteworthy in Bry's letters is a discussion of O'Keeffe's health, specifically her battle with macular degeneration, which began to strip O'Keeffe of her central vision in 1972. In an autograph letter dated May 8, 1972, Bry writes:"Much is quite terrible -- beyond words -- and then O'K remarkable and just acts, insofar as possible -- as if she can see. -- But the problem that it doesn't seem to stay static, but all worsens weekly for her rather inexorably..."In her December 1, 1972 letter, she notes:"I was glad to see O'K -- which I hadn't since early May -- as she seemed very much better in many ways than then. -- Generally in better health, better spirits (quite cheerful actually) -- and I did not have that terrible sense I had last spring of desperation and fatigue and tension which really worried me so much. -- She says her eyes are no better, though I feel from things she sees and says unconsciously that she is seeing more, and so does everyone around her. -- but she says it is that she has adapted to it. -- And yet I hope things will change for the better somehow. -- Her courage and attitude are remarkable -- and somehow I think she will find some way of painting again some time -- though she says not. -- but she does now begin to think of writing, using the little tape recorder -- so I hope something will come of this, and certainly encouraged it."Note: The Xeroxed proofs of O'Keeffe's text differ from the final version. The nine 8x10 inch proof photographs are loose in an envelope addressed to "Miss Georgia O'Keeffe c/o Bry".With two additional postcards from Bry to Jessner, a catalog illustrated with O'Keeffe's works (which Bry mentions in a letter to Jessner) in celebration of O'Keeffe being awarded the 1971 M. Carey Thomas Award by Bryn Mawr College, and a brochure for an O'Keeffe exhibition at The Downtown Gallery (1958).Some Memories of Drawings. New York: Atlantis Editions, 1974. Octavo, contents loose as issued in original publisher's presentation issue box (which is more substantial and handsome than the regular issue). One plate (#21) with light foxing on image; Blue Lines (#1) with a few very light spots of foxing on matting edge. Letters, proofs, additional material fine. A MAGNIFICENT COLLECTION. Fine....

        The Story of Cupid and Psyche, with illustrations designed by Edward Burne-Jones, mostly engraved on the wood by William Morris; the Introduction by A.R. Dufty.

      Folio. 2 vols.; original cloth-backed patterned boards, leather spine labels, top edges gilt; 44 wood-engravings after designs by Edward Burne-Jones, mostly engraved by William Morris, and with 26 plates in the Introduction volume showing preliminary sketches for the engravings; a fine copy in the matching slipcase. Printed by Will and Sebastian Carter at the Rampant Lions Press. This is No. 206 of 270 numbered copies.. Volume I contains the Introduction by A.R. Dufty and the plates of preliminary sketches, Volume II contains the poem and the engravings. [Sold with] One of 100 portfolios containing a set of proofs of the 44 wood-engravings, this no. xciv. (Portfolio a little sunned) The limitation of this publication is slightly confusing. 130 copies numbered I - CXXX were issued with a portfolio containing a set of collotype prints of the 47 original drawings and a set of proofs of the 44 wood-engravings. There were then 270 copies numbered 1 to 270 of the two volumes. Additionally there were 100 portfolios numbered i to c each containg a set of the proofs of the 44 wood-engravings. We are offering here a combination of one of the 270 numbered two volume sets and a copy of the 100 portfolios of proofs. "Cupid and Psyche" is one of the twenty-four stories that make up William Morris's The Earthly Paradise, a poem in Chaucerian metres. Morris and Burne-Jones had planned to produce a great illustrated edition of the work which, though begun, was never completed, and an unillustrated commercial edition was published in 1868-70. The wood-block illustrations for "Cupid and Psyche," designed by Burne-Jones and mostly engraved by Morris, have survived and are here published for the first time in their context. For this edition the matrices of the Kelmscott Troy types were made available for casting and this becomes the first book printed in the type since 1898. Several of the original drawings were used as sources for new blocks, cut to illustrate Robert Bridges' poem "Eros & Psyche", published by the Gregynog Press in 1935.

McPhail belongs to the new breed of children's book illustrators, along with James Marshall, Trina Schart Hyman and others - who bring a fresh originality to children's literature. McPhail's style ranges broadly from intricate detail reminiscent of Sendak's and E.H. Shepard's line illustrations to the broad strokes of William Steig. See Hornbook Illustrators of Children's Books vol. 4 p. 4-5, 143.

        FRANCOIS TRUFFAUT

      Viking Press, NY 1974 - Inscribed by François Truffaut to Tay Garnett: "Pour Tay Garnett/ avec mon admiration/ et mon plus cordial/ souvenir,/ Francois Truffaut" Tay Garnett (1894-1977) was one of the great American film directors of Hollywood's Golden Age, best known for the MGM film noir masterpiece, The Postman Always Rings Twice. This is a presentation copy to him from another great film director, who was one of the subjects in his book DIRECTING: LEARN FROM THE MASTERS, published posthumously in 1996. Truffaut was film director, screenwriter, actor, producer and film critic who, along with Jean-Luc Goddard, Éric Rohmer, Claude Chabrol, Agnès Varda, Jacques Demy and Jacques Rivette, was responsible for creating the French New Wave. He is probably best known for his Antoine Doinel series, beginning with "Les Quatre Cents Coups" ("400 Blows). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Sula

      NY: Knopf. 1974. The Nobel Laureate's second novel, which uses the theme of the friendship between two African-American women to explore issues of race, conformity and expectations within the black community, and within the larger white society. Inscribed by Morrison in 1978 to author, historian, and English professor Saunders Redding and his wife: "To the Reddings from Toni Morrison. Warmest regards and my very best wishes." With Saunders' signature on the title page. Saunders Redding was a pioneering critic of African-American literature and is believed to have been the first African-American to teach at an Ivy League university, when he was a visiting professor at his alma mater, Brown University, in 1949. He wrote a number of books focusing on African-American literature and history, and in the 1970s he was a member of the influential Haverford Group -- an informal think tank of accomplished African-American men who met to strategize about ways to defeat segregation and racism. An extraordinary association copy between the Nobel Prize winner Morrison and one of her most accomplished African-American literary forebears. Fine in a fine dust jacket but for two tiny edge tears on the back panel. In custom clamshell case. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine.
