Printed on handmade paper, with the title of the book in the watermark. Spine slightly toned. A near fine copy of one of our favorite Bird and Bull Press titles that is quite scarce on the market.

      Tokyo: Nora-sha, 1974. Fine in off-white cloth boards, with the original glassine largely intact (a few small tears and creases), in a clean, near fine example of the publisher's slipcase. The only copy I have seen with any historical significance.. First Edition. Quarto in slipcase. Original booklet and card prospectus laid in. Lengthily INSCRIBED in Japanese by the publisher, photographer Kazuo Kitai, who went bankrupt publishing this book. Kitai explained to me that Ihei Kimura - at the time Japan's best-known photographer - had personally promised to sell 500 copies of the book. Kimura's untimely death as the book went to press undid any chance the young publisher had to recoup his money. (Parr / Badger, v1, 297).

        Lettre manuscrite de Valentine Penrose, 1974.

      2 feuilles manuscrites recto/verso, papier à lettres bleu pâle17,5 x 23 cm, adresse de Valentine Penrose (1898-1978) imprimée, à Chiddingly, dans le Sussex. Mais ce courrier a été rédigé à la main depuis l'hôtel Delambre, à Paris, le 6 mai 1974. La poétesse et plasticienne surréaliste avait rédigé en 1962 « Elisabeth Bathory, la comtesse sanglante », un essai sur la comtesse Erzsébet Bathory, surnommée aussi la Comtesse Dracula en raison de ses bains dans du sang de vierges qu'elle fut accusée de prendre. Cette longue lettre, chaleureuse, d'une écriture lisible et dynamique, à l'encre bleue, est très intéressante puisqu'elle porte justement sur Bathory. Elle répond à l'un de ses lecteurs, qui avait des ancêtres Bathory et faisait des recherches sur sa généalogie. Elle y explique avoir mené des recherches dans les Archives de Vienne, avoir trouvé au XVIIIe siècle l'existence d'un Bathory Ferencz, exécuté par décapitation lors d'un complot contre l'empereur, dont elle relate sa passion pour les horloges et pendules. Elle raconte aussi une conversation avec le baron dont les parents possédaient le château de la Bathory, lui expliquant que le majordome, pendant la guerre, s'était réfugié à Vienne en emportant une malle contenant des robes d'Erzsébet Bathory et « même la fameuse résille qui enveloppait ses cheveux », malle jamais retrouvée. Elle encourage le destinataire : « Vous avez raison de vouloir faire vos recherches vous-même, c'est passionnant, et on découvre en soi bien des causes d'être celui qu'on est et pas un autre. » Et lui donne quelques contacts et des pistes de recherches. La lettre est signée. Trace d'une pliure horizontale au milieu des feuillets. Bel état de conservation. (ac) Très bon couverture souple Edition originale Dedicacé par l'auteur

        [James Cagney]: The American Film Institute [2nd Annual] Award for Life Achievement in Motion Pictures and Television 1974 [*SIGNED* by Cagney and 33 of his friends and colleagues]

      [Washington DC]: The American Film Institute. Good. [1974]. First Edition. Stapled wraps. NOISBN . [a much-handled copy, with various creases to covers and external rubbing and light soiling -- but consider who all handled it!] (B&W photographs) A spectacular copy of the tribute book for the AFI's second annual award, the first presented to an actor, which has been SIGNED not only by the honoree himself, but also by 33 other guests who were present at the dinner on March 13, 1974, at which the award was bestowed -- a truly incredible assemblage of showbiz luminaries, many of them legends on a par with Cagney himself. The complete list of signatures, nearly half of which appear on the introductory page with the rest scattered throughout the booklet (often next to a photograph of the signer, sometimes with a personal inscription added) is: Peter Bogdanovich, Joan Blondell, Ray Bradbury, Mary Brian, Mae Clarke (she who got the grapefuit in the puss from Cagney in THE PUBLIC ENEMY), Dan Dailey, Doris Day, Kirk Douglas, Charlton Heston, Bob Hope, Martha Hyer, Allen Jenkins, Jack Lemmon, Mervyn LeRoy, Frank McHugh, Shirley MacLaine, Aileen Manning, Rouben Mamoulian, Virginia Mayo, Ronald Reagan, Nancy Davis Reagan, Rex Reed, Debbie Reynolds, Nelson Riddle, Rosalind Russell, George C. Scott, Frank Sinatra, Alexis Smith, John Wayne, Mae West, William Wellman, Billy Wilder and Loretta Young. Includes two short articles, "The Unforgettable Young Man" by Joan Blondell, and "James Cagney: A Few Thoughts on the Next 2 Billion Years" by Ray Bradbury (both authors' signatures appear on the same page as their contributions); plus numerous comments from Cagney's professional colleagues and friends. The program's original owner, to whom the inscriptions are addressed, was Gene Ringgold, best-known within the movie industry as a veteran script doctor, a fact referenced in several of the inscriptions. At the time of the award, Cagney had been retired from the screen for 13 years, but was subsequently lured back for two appearances, notably in Milos Forman's RAGTIME (1981) and much less notably in the dreadful 1984 TV-movie TERRIBLE JOE MORAN. But unlike in, say, classical music, in the movies you can exit on a sour note and still leave a magnificent symphony of a career behind. Signed by Collection of Signatures .

      1974. Original French "affichette" poster for the 1974 film, "Lancelot du lac" (released in the US and UK as "Lancelot of the Lake") directed by Robert Bresson. Bresson's bloody take on the King Arthur legend was an expansion of the aesthetic he had already developed, where the violence that was once implied became a reality-though certainly still quite surreal. Near Fine condition, with a couple of repaired tears at the top edge and an extremely faint, almost negligible discoloration toward the top. 24 x 32 inches, rolled, on linen.
