        The Yum Yum Book Archive

      [San Francisco. 1974]. An archive of material related to the publication of Robert Crumb's The Yum Yum Book. The story was first conceived and executed by Crumb when he was 19 and later given to his first wife, Dana, as a gift. This collection represents his efforts to have the book published during the early 1970s. Contained here are: a spiral bound, hand made mock-up (measuring 5" x 3.5") assembled by Crumb himself to establish copyright, composed of 143 leaves with 295 distinct illustrations with a photograph of the original manuscript on each page, printed rectos only; a rubber stamp from Dana Crumb used to imprint the inside front cover of the mock-up which reads: "This book is the property of Dana Crumb Associates 819 Eddy Street San Francisco, California 54109 Must Be Returned Within 30 Days of Receipt"; a dummy of the hardbound book as originally conceived by Crumb with blank pages, bound in black cloth and titled in silver and blue; along with a first edition copy of the book published by Scrimshaw Press in 1975, fine in near fine dust jacket.From the collection of his lawyer Albert Morse who is mentioned on the dust jacket flap: "I gave the book as a gift to Dana when I first met her, as a token of my love. We got married shortly after. It has been hidden away all these years, along with some early sketchbooks of mine, and other sophomoric-romantic works done in the throes of horny passion. But now the time has come to review it to the world. I guess. My lawyer Albert Morse think it will sell like hotcakes and make a lot of money. I dunno."A wonderful archive of material from Crumb's first major project. .

      1974 - MEL BLANC - Typed Letter Signed Typed letter thanking a gentleman for a recent letter that he sent. On Mel Blanc personal letterhead, measured 5.5" X 8.5" and is dated September 6, 1974. Condition: Normal mailing folds. Fine condition. "Dear Victor, Getting to record for cartoons is a very difficult thing to do. Hundreds of others are trying but very few succeeding. My advice is to do as many amature shows as you can, and maybe the right agent will hear you and contact you. Be as natural as possible. Regards, Mel Blanc". Born in San Francisco in 1908, Mel Blanc was the famed voice of popular and beloved animated cartoon characters, including Bugs Bunny, Woody Woodpecker, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety Pie, Sylvester, and many others. Known as The Man of 1,000 Voices, Blanc's voice as these cartoon characters became instantly recognizable to generations of children starting with the golden era of Merrie Melodies cartoons by Warner Brothers. Among the many lines he uttered: Bugs Bunny's "Eh, what's up, Doc", "I tawt I taw a putty tat", from the tart-tongued canary Tweety; the Road Runner's "Beep, beep", Sylvester the Cat's "Thufferin' thuccotash", Woody Woodpecker's signature "Hee, hee, heh, ho. Hee, hee, heh, ho", and stutter- strewn Porky Pig's "Th-th-th-th-that's all f-f-f-folks." Note that Grace Stafford was also the voice for Woody Woodpecker in many cartoons. He began his career in show business as a musician and a radio performer in 1927, when he sang and performed on a Portland radio show called The Hoot Owls. Mel Blanc also appeared on the Jack Benny Program both on radio and television where he made his character 'Sy, the Little Mexican' famous. His first Warner Bros. character was a drunken bull in the 1937 Looney Tunes short Picador Porky. As legend has it, the actor playing Porky Pig in that short actually did stutter. A few months later, Mr. Blanc took over the role in Porky's Duck Hunt, stuttering intact, and created Daffy Duck at the same time. He went on to invent the voices of other well-known cartoon figures, such as Speedy Gonzalez, Pepe Le Pew, Tasmanian Devil, Foghorn Leghorn, Heathcliffe the cat, Speed Buggy and Yosemite Sam. His last cartoon contribution came with 1988's popular animation-live action film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, in which he did the voices of Daffy, Tweety, Bugs and Sylvester. He died in 1989 in Los Angeles, California. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. U. und Photographie mit eh. Widmung und U.

      Madrid, 11. VII. 1974. - 1 S. Gr.-4to. Die Photographie im Format 209 x 291 mm. Im Jahr vor seinem Tod an Fernand Fossier in Paris. Aus dem spanischen Exil, wo der aus deutschem Internierungslager geflüchtete fanatische Nazi unter Francos Schutz lebte, und in fehlerhaftem Französisch über ein Buch von Alain Decaux, über eine eigene in Arbeit befindliche Buchveröffentlichung und über angebliche Filmaufnahmen von der Befreiung des inhaftierten Mussolini am Gran Sasso im Jahre 1943, an der Skorzeny beteiligt gewesen war: "[.] Je connais le livre de M. Decaux et j'ai lu gran part de ce livre, et je dois dire qu'il fait beaucoup, beaucoup des erreurs. Si Monsieur Decaux ne me 'couvre pas de fleurs' ça ne fait rien, on ne peut pas d'avoir seulement des amis. Je crois qu'un homme de caractère doit avoir aussi des enemis [.] Vous m'écrivez qu'il y a quelques sequences d'un film de l'arrive des planeurs et de la progression des paras. Vous voyez, c'est déja une petite mensonge, parce que premièrement avec nos planeurs nous n'avons pas eu la place pour un Photograph ni pour un homme d'une Compagnie de Propagande. Ce Monsieur, un lieutenent Kaiser, a venu sur le montagne seulement 20 minutes après le fin d'action et a pris une film par example de la sortie de Mussolini de l'Hotel et aussi du départ du Fieseler Storch. Concernant l'arrivée des planeurs et la progression des paras, on a fait cette filme quelques deux semaines ou dix jours après l'action [.] C'est à dire, on a fait un petit trique [.]". - Nennt ihm auch die Adresse des Luftwaffen-Oberst Hans Ulrich Rudel (1916-1982). - Die mit eh. Widmung an denselben Adressaten versehene Photographie (neuerer Abzug) zeigt den von Skorzeny u. a. befreiten Mussolini.

        The Mote In God's Eye

      Simon & Schuster, New York 1974 - 1st edition/1st printing. 1st printing with full number line. Near fine, straight, clean book with no handwriting in it and with the silver spine lettering in fine condition, with very slight edge fading to the binding--as usual--and slight toning to text paper--as usual. There are a couple of very small, very faint spots to page edges, and a touch of shelfwear to the lower front corner; no other faults. The near fine price intact dustjacket is clean, crisp and unfaded, with a few very tiny nicks/rubs at spine fold ends and flap fold ends and one small surface rub with no color loss to the back panel gutter area but with no tears or chips. Quite a handsome example of this scarce in the 1st printing classic. I agree with Robert Heinlein's blurb on this one; it is one of the very best sci-fi books I've ever read, with a gut-wrenching ending. Not a story likely to be forgotten easily.

Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Carrying the Fire: An Astronaut's Journeyswas published by Cooper Square Press (U.S.) in 1974, and it is an autobiographical account by the Gemini 10 and Apollo 11 astronaut. Collins writes his own work and does not hire ghost writers, explaining that "[n]o matter how good the ghost, I am convinced that a book loses realism when an interpreter stands between the storyteller and his audience" (Collins, 2001). Indeed, Collins writing has been called "the best-written book yet by any of the astronauts" by Time magazine. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        [7" vinyl record]: Hey Joe (Version) [and] Piss Factory

      [New York]: Mer Records. 1974. Original 7" vinyl 45 RPM record. Fine in modestly age-toned, about fine plain white sleeve as issued, in the original mailing envelope. Signed by Patti Smith on the white sleeve. Also included is a small, age-toned clipping from The Village Voice advertising a contemporary performance by Smith at Max's Kansas City, listing the book and record stores where this record could be purchased, and noting that it could be purchased directly for $2.50 from Sunburst Industries. Patti Smith's first vinyl single, "Hey Joe" and "Piss Factory" on the B side, produced by Lenny Kaye for Robert Mapplethorpe. The record, mailer, and clipping are housed in (and easily removable from) an acrylic stand. An exceptionally uncommon record, the original mailer is rare. This copy is addressed to R.W. Bayley in Forest Knolls, California, with the return address of The WARTOKE Concern in New York (listing the same Broadway address as Sunburst Industries), and postmarked September 26, 1974. The recipient, Roberta Bayley, is a photographer who created one of the most important photographic records of the punk scene as it germinated in New York City, and she was also the co-author (with Victor Bockris) of the first biography of Patti Smith (Patti Smith. New York: Simon & Schuster 1999). The clipping is pictured in the biography. Her iconic photographs (including the photo that graced the jacket of the first Ramones album) helped define the New York punk aesthetic. Her reminiscences in Leg McNeil and Gillian McCain's Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk, possibly the best single volume source of the early history of punk, were central to the book. .

Fine cloth, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs, introduction and additional text by Robert Adams. Foreword by John Szarkowski. 122 pp., with 56 black and white plates. 9 1/4 x 10 inches. Out of print. Extremely scarce. [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. (New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001), and in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II.

From the publisher of the 2000 reissue of this landmark book (Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König): "Robert Adams' The New West can be accounted one of the outstanding works of artistic photography since 1945. This series of 56 pictures stands in the tradition of such projects as Walker Evans' American Photographs (1938) and Robert Frank's The Americans (1958). The wide open spaces of the American West have all but disappeared. Robert Adam's legendary book The New West tells of what has taken their place: the destruction of a once grandiose landscape by settlement which imposed highways, cheap housing developments and the vacuous chaos of advertising signs in the cities."
