        Gravity's Rainbow

      New York: The Viking Press. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Fine. 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). New York: Viking Press, (1973). Octavo, original orange cloth, original dust jacket. Book near-fine with creasing to small section of text block; dust jacket price-clipped and with small ink number ("1049") written on front flap; otherwise dust jacket remarkably bright and fine with no edgewear. A beautiful copy.

        Spencerian Bird [Spencerian Penmanship art]

      1974 - Original art; a thoroughly stunning example of Spencerian Penmanship art. Crafted by Asao with pitch-black ink on paper. Originally a method of rules for teaching cursive writing to children, "Spencerian Penmanship" was created in the mid-1800's by Platt Rogers Spencer, who grew up admiring the graceful lines of the John Hancock signature on the Declaration of Independence, and his five sons. It stood in contrast to Italian calligraphy [which was developed for speed only] particularly in its capital letters, which were to be accomplished in artful flourishes unique to the writer's style. The writing form has occasionally been taken to its extremes as a beautiful form of graphic art, as in the case of this August, 1974 Spencerian Bird rendering by Shigeo Asao. The Spencerian Bird form is an expression in Spencerian cursive art of a bird-of-paradise-like creature or creatures (three are found in this example), a now famous device because elaborate tail plumage allows full expression of the complex flowing curves of the art form. Examining this opus by Asao, with its minutely tapering threadlines and deep black ink still glistening in places, one has to wonder how it's possible with a human hand. Signed and dated. 7.5" x 11" white paper, loosely matted 14.75" 18.5". Slight creasing, tiny faint brown spot, else fine for both the work and the matting. You'll want to see scans of this. - Jeff Harvey LBB-D

The author's first published novel, and to this day one of his most horrifying, about a young girl with telekinetic powers. Basis for the 1976 film of the same name, directed by Brian De Palma, and starring Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie and Amy Irving. One of the defining films of that decade, it garnered two Academy Award nominations, one for Spacek (Best Actress in a Leading Role) and the other for Laurie (Best Actress in a Supporting Role). & & ~SIGNED stunningly by King on the title page, who also struck a line through his printed name. & & ~Stated "First Edition" on the copyright page, copyright (c) 1974 Stephen King, indicating first printing of the first edition (with code "P6" present in the gutter of page 199 and C. $5.95 inside flap dust jacket price).& & ~A fine copy, in original burgundy cloth, in an otherwise fine dust jacket, but for two very small closed tears to top edge of front panel. A superb collector's copy of King's first book, with a striking signature.
