        The Power Broker.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1974. First edition of the author's Pulitzer-Prize winning work on Robert Moses. Thick octavo, original black cloth, cartographic endpapers. Signed by Robert A. Caro on the title page. Fine in a a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Dust jacket design by Paul Bacon. A very nice example of this bulky book, which tends to show wear. One of the most acclaimed books of our time, winner of both the Pulitzer and the Francis Parkman prizes, the Power Broker tells the hidden story behind the shaping (and mis-shaping) of twentieth-century New York and makes public what few have known: that Robert Moses was, for almost half a century, the single most powerful man of our time in New York, the shaper not only of the city's politics but of its physical structure and the problems of urban decline that plague us today. "Surely the greatest book ever written about a city" (David Halberstam). Theodore H. White called it "A masterpiece of American reporting. It's more than the story of a tragic figure or the exploration of the unknown politics of our time. It's an elegantly written and enthralling work of art."

        The Paper Maker: A Survey of Lesser-Known Hand Paper Mills in Europe and North America

      North Hills: Bird & Bull Press, 1974. Small quarto. 128pp. One of 175 copies. One of the most important and beautiful books of the Bird & Bull Press. The first section of the text consists of Morris' survey of lesser-known contemporaneous papermakers, with brief histories, photographic illustrations, and paper samples of mills in the United States, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Italy, and Poland.

The second part provides an index of "The Paper Maker," a periodical issued by Hercules. Minor wear to extremities, else fine in quarter-morocco and red paste-paper boards. Prospectus, typewritten bookseller's description, and two letters-one from H. E. Dotzert of the Lockwood Trade Journal to Ruth Lowry, June 15, 1937, and the other from W. A.

        A UNICEF Christmas card (printed on paper, unfolded dimensions 220 x 155 mm); on the blank verso is an autograph letter signed from Olda (Mrs Kokoschka). It is also inscribed and signed at the foot of the letter 'Love and kindest wishes for 1977, yours, Oskar Kokoschka'. The letter, to unnamed recipients, contains season's greetings and thank yous for various kindnesses; we know it to be addressed to one of his former students, Ernest Roth, and his wife in Adelaide, South Australia

      It is offered together with another eleven letters and an aerogram (seven in German, five in English, dated between 1974 to 1980), all written and signed by Olda Kokoschka to the Roths. The content tends to be routine and repetitive, but it is not without appeal. For example, in November 1978, Olda writes 'that Kokoschka [aged 92] is fairly well and interested in all events in the world as before. We read together a lot and hope that the winter will be kind to us'. There is also a small quantity of related material, including four post-1980 Christmas cards from Olda (these reproduce Kokoschka artwork), the original envelopes for the letters, and some minor printed ephemera.

        1917-1974. [History of the Kornilov Regiment. 1917 - 1974].

      Parizh 1974 - Octavo (24 x 16.5 cm). 670 pp., decorated throughout. White publisher's wrappers; soiled, small tears to spine. First and only edition; "very rare" (Savine). Detailed account of the history of the Kornilov regiment, one of the earliest formed voluntary divisions of the White Army. The self-published work was compiled by Levitov (1893-1982), the Colonel of the Kornilov regiment, whose first-hand experience and memories are combined here with academic research and interviews with participants of the events. He describes the formation of the regiment in May-June 1917, the epic 'Ice March' into the empty steppe towards the Kuban, the siege of Ekaterinodar, the death of General Kornilov and transfer of the command to General Denikin, march towards Moscow, relocation of the White Army to Crimea and further life in exile. The work benefits from multiple photographs, plans and historical documents reproduced along the text. Not in the collection of Russian National Library (RNB). __________________________________________ ??????????? ???? ?? ??????? ????????????? ???????? ????? ???????????? ???? ??? ?????? ????? ????????????, ? ?????? ??? ????? ???????????? ?? ??? ? ????????? ?? ??????? ????????? ????????? ? ????????? ??????????????? ????? ????? ????? ?????? ? ????? ?? ???? ???????? ????????? ????????????? ????? ?.? ??????? ? ??? ??????????? ?????? ?????? ?????, ????? ????????? ???????? ??? ??????? ?????, ??????? ? ??? ????????? ? 17 ????, ????? ? ?????? ????????? ?????, ??????????? ?? ????????????, ?????? ???????? ????????? ? ?????????? ? ???????????? ???????? ????????, 2-? ????????? ?????, ??????????? ???, ???????? ?? ??????, ??????????? ? ???????????? ?????, ?????????? ? ????, ??? ????? ?? - ??? ?? ????????, ???????? ?????? ? ???????, ????????????? ????????, ????? ?????? ????? ? ????? ?????????? ????? ?????? ????????? ????????? ?????, ??????????? ????????????? ???, ?????? ?????, ?????????? ????????? ? ???????????? ?? ??? ???????? ?????????, ??????? ?????? ??????????? ? ???? - 48000 ???????, ? ????? ???????????? ???????? ?????????? ??????????? ???????, ????? ? ????? ????????? ??????????? ? ??????, ????? ??? ????????? ?????????? ?????, ????? ? ????? ?????? ???????? ????? ????? ???????????

        Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel: How to Read Music in One Evening / A Clatworthy Catalog [SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY (by Larry Sultan)]

      Clatworthy Colorvues 1974 - First edition, first printing. Signed and inscribed in blue ink on the copyright page (by Larry Sultan) to an important figure in contemporary photography (please inquire). Soft cover. Photographically illustrated wrappers; no dust jacket as issued. Found images edited and arranged by Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel. Unpaginated (60 pp.), with black-and-white plates throughout. 8 x 10-7/8 inches. Fine (1mm crease at upper corner of wrapper). From Sandra Phillips: "In 1974, Mike Mandel and Larry Sultan, produced their first collaborative book, How to Read Music in One Evening, A Clatworthy Catalog. This comprised a series of drawings and rather lowbrow photographic illustrations lifted from cheap ads or instructional manuals: the sort you would find on the back of comic books or inside matchbooks or in the pages of the (now defunct) Sunset House catalog. The advertised electric neck warmers, machines to strip corn off the cob, tape to repair the water hose for your car were arranged and cropped, and these wonderfully ordinary, naive pictures were reordered and became a mysterious and funny metaphorical book essentially about sex. Those strange gray pictures which demonstrated how a mechanical nose hair trimmer worked, or how to place potatoes on a metal spike to cook them more efficiently, resembled the collaged work of Jess, or Bruce Conner.In How to Read Music, however, the pictures were arranged with a respect for the authority of the original image, which, while cropped (and excising the text) retains its identity while at the same time is altered by the anomalous relationship it has with the other pictures. Even though the mechanics they illustrate is decidedly low tech, mop handles, shoulder strap details, the consistent theme is of people using mechanical devices in a kind of banal but utopian association, women smiling giddily as they try on sunshades or telephone receivers. Only toward the end is there even a sense of foreboding: a close-up of a hand gun near a man's shirtless chest, a man's face covered with a ski mask except for the eyes and nose, a box of jewels and documents with ghostly flames licking its surface. Not surprisingly, this little book gives clues to the photographic project that immediately followed it?[Evidence]." Signed by Author. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Carrie

      Doubleday, New York 1974 - New York, Doubleday, 1974. First Edition. First Impression. King's first novel and a foundation of any King collection. The present copy inscribed by King 'For John - \ all best, \ Stephen King'. King's first published novel (though he'd written half a dozen prior to Carrie). The novel was the big break King had been looking for and the subsequent sale of paperback rights to NAL brought him both the start of good money and strong sales [Beahm, p171]. The hardback did well for a first novel, though the paperback really brought the success. The present copy is in fine condition, with a little softening to the jacket at the lower spine tip with one small nick, front fold a little rubbed and a couple of light marks to the endpaper. Small indentation to jacket at rear. All in all though a very presentable copy and superior to most copies we've handled. Cover art by Alex Gotfryd [6020, Hyraxia Books].

        Le Petit Ami illustré par Grau Sala, 290 ex., un sur des 66 sur Japon Nacré

      Pierre de Tartas 1974 - 29 lithographies originales en couleurs par Grau Sala . 6 sont en double page dont deux comportent la signature manuscrite à la mine de plomb de Grau Sala en marge . Cette édition comporte aussi une série de 5 planches signés par l' illustrateur sur Grand Vélin d' Arches et une décomposition des couleurs d' une planche au sein de deux chemises. Cette Edition comporte 8 signatures de Grau Sala (7 sur des lithographies et une sur la page de justification). dont les illustrations font particulièrement vivre un monde ou demi-monde charmant, dans un cadre à la fois somptueux et artificiel. Il semble que cet Espagnol de Paris, ait su lier la grâce spirituelle et futile, qu'il est convenu d'accorder à l'art de Paris, et le sens de la grandeur hérité de sa race. Dans toutes les illustrations qui lui sont dues, on retrouve sans cesse sa prédilection pour les sujets légers, parfois pervers, mais dont la perversité s'efface, dépassée par le goût de l'illustrateur et des auteurs qu'il choisit. 'Petit bijou, ile texte de Paul Léautaud est la tendre évocation du Paris de Toulouse-Lautrec, des cabarets, des femmes faciles au coeur gonflé d'amour. Ce récit autobiographique - malgré la trame joviale - n'en est pas mois déchirant. Il conte la destinée du jeune Léautaud abandonné par sa mère et livré à lui-même quand il était enfant, traînant alors son adolescence de femme publique en femme publique à la recherche désespérante de la mère. Publié par Pierre de Tartas à Paris en 1974 à 290 exemplaires , un des 66 premiers sur Japon Nacré avec le n° 18 . Un fort volume au format in-folio (391 x 297 mm) de 154 pages, en feuilles, sous couverture lithographiée à rabats rempliés dans un très bon état. Superbe réalisation présentée sous un élégant coffret de plexiglas en très bon état. L' intérieur est en très bon état. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Holiday [Inscribed]

      London: Hutchinson, 1974. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Second Impression of one of the scarcest Booker Prize winners (Holiday shared the award with Nadine Gordimer's The Conservationist, in 1974). Neatly inscribed by Middleton on the title page: "To Giilian and Richard, / with every good wish, / Stanley Middleton." 8vo: [6],240pp. Publisher's French blue cloth, spine stamped in silver, pictorial dust jacket designed by Colin Andrews, priced £2.75 net (scored through). Fine (and apparently unread), square and tight; Fine jacket, with absolutely no fading to spine panel. "Holiday is one of those books that the enemies of literary fiction often complain about: a novel in which "nothing happens"-or at least, all the action takes place inside the head of a determinedly average middle-class character. In the physical world, little more takes place than that the protagonist, a lecturer in education called Edwin Fisher, goes on holiday to an old-fashioned 'nineteen-thirties sunshine shoddy' seaside resort, has a few bed-and-breakfast fry-ups, chats to some girls on the beach, mooches on the prom, meets his father-in-law a few times, has an inebriated fondle with a married woman, and then returns home to the wife he has recently left. Inside Fisher's head, however, all systems are go. Middleton adopts the role of the writer as God with glee, but shows no mercy. He opens up his leading man like a scallop. . . with such a deft sense of surprise and timing that . . . I started to feel voyeuristic. I was embarrassed for Fisher and troubled that I'd been shown so many of his secrets. . . . In 1974 Ronald Blythe said in his Sunday Times review of the book that 'we need Stanley Middleton to remind us what the novel is about. Holiday is vintage Middleton. The result of Mr. Middleton's analysis is so satisfying that one has to look at nineteenth-century writing for comparable storytelling.'" (The Guardian) N. B.

        Holiday [Inscribed]

      London: Hutchinson, 1974. Second Impression of one of the scarcest Booker Prize winners (Holiday shared the award with Nadine Gordimer's The Conservationist, in 1974). Neatly inscribed by Middleton on the title page: "To Giilian and Richard, / with every good wish, / Stanley Middleton." 8vo: [6],240pp. Publisher's French blue cloth, spine stamped in silver, pictorial dust jacket designed by Colin Andrews, priced £2.75 net (scored through). Fine (and apparently unread), square and tight; Fine jacket, with absolutely no fading to spine panel. "Holiday is one of those books that the enemies of literary fiction often complain about: a novel in which "nothing happens"--or at least, all the action takes place inside the head of a determinedly average middle-class character. In the physical world, little more takes place than that the protagonist, a lecturer in education called Edwin Fisher, goes on holiday to an old-fashioned 'nineteen-thirties sunshine shoddy' seaside resort, has a few bed-and-breakfast fry-ups, chats to some girls on the beach, mooches on the prom, meets his father-in-law a few times, has an inebriated fondle with a married woman, and then returns home to the wife he has recently left. Inside Fisher's head, however, all systems are go. Middleton adopts the role of the writer as God with glee, but shows no mercy. He opens up his leading man like a scallop. . . with such a deft sense of surprise and timing that . . . I started to feel voyeuristic. I was embarrassed for Fisher and troubled that I'd been shown so many of his secrets. . . . In 1974 Ronald Blythe said in his Sunday Times review of the book that 'we need Stanley Middleton to remind us what the novel is about. Holiday is vintage Middleton. The result of Mr. Middleton's analysis is so satisfying that one has to look at nineteenth-century writing for comparable storytelling.'" (The Guardian) N. B.
