        Carrying the Fire: An Astronaut's Journey.

      FSG, New York 1974 - First Edition. Octavo. Inscribed by Collins as follows, "For _______ _______ Enjoyed working with you at the Air and Space Museum- Michael Collins." 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."

      Adolf Hurlimann, Zurich 1974 - Trente-cinq poèmes d'amour. Edition originale illustré de 4 lithographies en couleurs d'André Masson (cm 24,5x31,5). Livre signé par le poète, l'artiste e l'éditeur Dal Catalogo Generale dei Libri Illustrati "André Masson. The Illustrated Books": Reasons of health probably prevented Masson from executing original lithographs when he intended to do so (the 1960s and 1970s). In this period Masson would make, after his preparatory sketches, a finished color drawing. He would then trace the main outline of this finished maquette and apply a special red crayon on the verso of the transparent tracing paper which could be transferred to the plate as a guide. Using this guide, Masson would then draw his original lithograph freely, creating new lines and any flourishes he desired as he worked. The color maquette would further serve as a guide for drawing the color plates. pp. 16 quartini sciolti Ouvrage tiré sur vélin de Rives. Les lithographies ont été tirées sur les presses de J. E.

        Flowers in a vase on a ledge in a recess, including a red anemone, three bi-colour carnations, four old-fashioned roses, a yellow day-lily, sweet peas, and four irises (an iris susiana, and three breadless irises), with a single green irridescent beetle on the ledge to the right of the vase

      A delightful tour-de-force on vellum by an 18th century English botanical artist working in the Flemish style. Simson is a rare example of an English botanical artist working in the Flemish or Dutch style, perhaps best exemplified by his contemporary Jan van Huysum. Simson's immediate contemporary in England, Georg Dionysius Ehret, painted with an overriding concern for scientific accuracy; Simson's ideal, aptly shown with this watercolour on vellum, was to create an aesthetically pleasing composition while still paying due attention to the accurate depiction of his subjects. The composition of the present work is masterful: the fluted vase stands in shadowy recess, some rose petals have fallen to the marbled shelf and are being investigated by a glistening green iridescent beetle. The beetle, representing the untamed natural world, forms a contrast to the formal man-made arrangement of the flowers in the vase. The flowers are an opulent extravaganza of colour and texture: the Susiana iris being the most dramatic bloom whose spectactularly speckled petals are balanced by the butter yellow of the day-lily, whilst the whole composition is beautifully lit by a soft morning light causing the remaining dew-drops from the fresh-picked flowers to stand out. Simson's work is known from two other still-lifes in the Broughton Collection in the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, England. Both of these undated works are in a landscape format and are mounted on panels of oak veneer. Fitzwilliam Museum A First selection of Flower Drawings from the Broughton Collection (1974) item 32.

        The Wandering Tattler

      The Perishable Press, Driftless, WI 1974 - Tall narrow folio, half bound in blue leather with gold stamping, and cased in a black cloth covered slipcase. Number 31, in a total edition of 130. Signed by the poet, and accompanied by drawings by Ellen Lanyon. Beautifully printed by hand on handmade Shadwell paper. In my estimation, this is one of the innovative, inspiring and influential press's loveliest productions. As Veatchs Arts of the Book (much more careful and watchful readers than me) have pointed out, early editions of this title (of which this is one) end the humorous colophon with "besides being a good gynecologist he is a word freak." Copies printed later in the edition changed that wording to "being a good gynecologist, he has a good eye for details." [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Silent Cry [Signed 2x] [Ma'en Gannen no Futtoboru]

      Tokyo: Kodansha International Ltd. [Printed in Japan; Distributed in the US by Harper & Row], 1974. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (front board's upper right corner tapped), in a Very Good + to Near Fine dust jacket (small rub to the frong panel's upper right corner, small rub to the spine tail, short tear where the lower front panel joins the flap turn), SIGNED TWICE BY KENZABURO OE on the title page, once in Japanese characters, and once in English characters; text in English. First published in Japan and there titled "Ma'en Gannen no Futtoboru" (1967), the novel centers on a man, Mitsu, whose younger brother's return from America saves the protagonist from drowning in the flood of disasters which have beset him. Mitsu's best friend has just committed suicide, and his wife has given birth to a deformed baby -- which tragic event sends her on the path to alcoholism. At the younger brother's instigation, the family then leaves the city to start a new life, returning to its ancestral village and to its ancestral past whereupon past and present interweave in their lives. Kenzaburo Oe won the 1994 Nobel Prize in Literature as an author "who with poetic force creates an imagined world, where life and myth condense to form a disconcerting picture of the human predicament today". In his speech presenting the Prize to Oe, Professor Kjell Espmark, Member of the Swedish Academy, used "The Silent Cry" as the primary exemplar of Oe's work and as a springboard to discuss Oe's other books. Signed copies of this important work are quite scarce. An altogether Very Good + to Near Fine copy of a work which significantly contributed to Oe's winning the Prize, SIGNED TWICE BY KENZABURO OE. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
