        The Killer Angels.

      New York: David Mckay, 1974. First edition of the Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by Michael Shaara on the front free endpaper. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of wear. Rare and desirable signed. Stephen Crane once said that he wrote The Red Badge of Courage because reading the cold history was not enough; he wanted to know what it was like to be there, what the weather was like, what men's faces looked like. In order to live it he had to write it. This book was written for much the same reason" (Shaara). The Killer Angels reveals more about the Battle of Gettysburg than any piece of learned nonfiction on the same subject. James McPherson wrote, "This is favorite historical novel . . . a superb re-creation of the Battle of Gettysburg, but its real importance is its insight into what the war was about, and what it meant." "A book that changed my life... I had never visited Gettysburg, knew almost nothing about that battle before I read the book, but here it all came alive" (Ken Burns).

      Delacorte Press, New York 1974 - 296 p. Textual photographs and illustrations. New York: Delacorte Press/Seymour Lawrence, 1974. First edition. "Journalist, party girl, bookworm, artist, muse: by the time she'd hit thirty, Eve Babitz had played all of these roles. Immortalized as the nude beauty facing down Duchamp and as one of Ed Ruscha's Five 1965 Girlfriends, Babitz's first book showed her to be a razor-sharp writer with tales of her own. Eve's Hollywood is an album of vivid snapshots of Southern California's haute bohemians, of outrageously beautiful high-school ingenues and enviably tattooed Chicanas, of rock stars sleeping it off at the Chateau Marmont" (New York Review Books). Octavo. Original black cloth binding, with pink and silver stamping. This copy is inscribed by Mae Babitz, the author's mother, to Helen Wurdemann, longtime director of the Los Angeles Art Association, on the front flyleaf. Light bump to the top of the front board. Some general shelfwear to the dust jacket, with a bit of chipping at the corners and tips; else very good. Scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        YONY: Complete Set in Seven Issues

      Chicago: Generative Systems Department of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 1974-1976. Condition as noted; overall near fine.. Limited edition artist publications. Four small quartos and four oblong quartos (Issue 6 is represented in two versions, a first and second printing). A complete run of the seven issues of YONY, a circulated artist publication produced at the Generative Systems department in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Remarkable collection of printed matter created experimentally on various types of black and white and color photocopiers. Directed by Sonia Sheridan, and co-founded with book artist Keith Smith, the department of Generative Art, along with artist collectives such as EAT, vigorously probed the artistic image making potential of technologies developed by companies such as Xerox and 3M. Their experiments were informed both by movements in conceptual art as well as a spirit of individual creation that would become apparent in the zine movement. The direct, and often bodily engagement with the technology connects the work to the video art movement, especially the feedback loops of self-cybernation. The resulting print objects are notable both as elevated examples of a very specific moment in rapidly evolving digital printing technology and as idiosyncratic artistic creations. While OCLC locates individual issues held in seven libraries, a complete set is exceptionally scarce. Full title list below: SHERIDAN, Sonia and Keith Smith. YONY, Volume 1, Number 1. Chicago: Generative Systems, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 1974. Quarto. Published in August of 1974, contains several articles, including an overview of the department of Generative Systems, then in the fifth year of existence. Also includes overviews of the program, an invitation to apply for NEA scholarship, and two tipped in color examples of thermal printing paper. The first issue is an interesting mixture of both artist publication and informational packet. Near fine in photocopied wrappers; circulated and with circulated postcard, hand-written from Sonia Sheridan laid in; post card explains that each copy of YONY is individually hand-printed by Sheridan or Smith. Near fine in photocopied wrappers. SHERIDAN, Sonia and Keith Smith. YONY, Volume 1, Number 2. Chicago: Generative Systems, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 1974. Quarto with unique photocopied plates laid-in. Published in October of 1974; contains contributions from Leif Brush and Mitch Petchenik, including a concept for a "Tethered Satellite" property surveillance plan, not unlike Google Earth. Tellingly, YONY's version assigns responsibility for surveillance on the property owner rather than a government or corporation, creating a network of self-reporting and self-surveilling nodes. Dense issue, largely given over to further topographical investigations. Near fine in photocopied wrappers; circulated. SHERIDAN, Sonia and Keith Smith. YONY, Volume 1, Number 3. Chicago: Generative Systems, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 1974. Quarto, side stapled. Published in November of 1974, and according to Sheridan's introduction, mailed out simultaneously with issue Number 2. Unlike that issue, Number 3 contains minimal text. Following Sheridan's introduction and a further explanation that "every image in this YONY is a first generation print… each image is unique". What follows is an expressionistic sequence of images of an artist's face, hands, and skin pressed against the scanner, creating manipulated, surreal images. This issue is side stapled, allowing the double sided images to be folded out, releasing the juxtapositions. Near fine in photocopied wrappers, circulated. SHERIDAN, Sonia Landy, Keith Smith, and Craig Goldwyn. YONY, Volume 1, Number 4. Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 1975. From a stated edition of 400 copies. Quarto, stapled. Published in May of 1975. A more technical issue of YONY, dedicated entirely to electrostatics, "state of the science, state of the art, state of their union." Includes several color plates. Intriguing articles considering electrographics as both "paintbrush for tomorrow" and as "cameras without shutters". Near fine in electographicly illustrated wrappers. SHERIDAN, Sonia Landy, Phil Hitchcock, Craig Goldwyn, Mitch Petchenik, and Mary Jane Dougherty. YONY, Volume 1, Number 5, Scanners, Part 1, Featuring Sound Woven Photographs by Phil Hitchcock. Chicago: Generative Systems Department, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 1976. From a stated edition of 30 copies. Oblong quarto, velo-bound. SIGNED and inscribed by primary contributor Phil Hitchcock, "To a close friend / Phil Hitchcock". Issue consists of two pages of explanatory text followed by twenty-eight pages of of photocopied images created on the Xerox 400 telecopier. Using a grid system, the images can be assembled to form a life size photographic image of the Sonia Sheridan. Near fine in clear acetate wrappers. SHERIDAN, Sonia and Mary Jane Dougherty. YONY, Volume 1, Number 6, Handmade. Chicago: Generative Systems Dept., The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 1976. Oblong quarto, slip-bound. SIGNED to back cover by Mary Jane Dougherty. Nineteen monochromatic color images followed by one page of explanatory text. Records movements of the hands on a scanner bed, "performed" for the 3M VQC copier "as audience" and then reproduced on a Xerox 6500 Color Copier. The removable slip binding is intended to allow the viewer to rearrange and rebind at will. Also includes a second printing of same issue executed on a black and white photocopier, otherwise identical format. Both near fine in clear acetate wrappers. SHERIDAN, Sonia and various student artists. YONY, Volume 1, Number 7. Chicago: Generative Systems, 1976. Oblong quarto, comb-bound. Compilation of a wide variety of work by many students from the Generative Systems department; each page is a unique piece, most SIGNED by the artists. The final issue of YONY, and appropriately a broad sample of the creative possibilities of digital information and image replication systems. On most of the pages, the machine used to generate the piece is also notated, making this installment a snapshot of technology available at the time of creation. A beautiful swan song for this technically innovative and artistically accomplished publication. Near fine in clear acetate wrappers.

        The Killer Angels

      1st Edition New York: David McKay, 1974. FIRST EDITION of Michael Shaara's Pulitzer-prize winning novel about the battle of Gettysburg. "Reflecting on an extraordinary experience with his family visiting the battlefield at Gettysburg, Michael became obsessed with telling the story of that momentous event through the eyes of the main characters themselves, something that had never been done. After seven years, the manuscript for The Killer Angels was completed... To Michael's disappointment, The Killer Angels was rejected by the first fifteen publishers who saw the manuscript. Finally, in 1973, it was bought by the small independent publisher, The David McKay Company, who was subsequently bought by Random House... [The] novel received very little attention, and mixed reviews, thus it was a shock to both Michael and the literary community when the announcement was made that The Killer Angels had been awarded the 1975 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction" (Jeff Shaara).New York: David McKay, 1974. Original blue cloth, original dust jacket. A superb copy, rare in this condition. Fine / Fine.

        Some Memories of Drawings...

      New York: Atlantis Editions, 1974. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, ONE OF 20 PRESENTATION COPIES (out of a total edition of 120), signed by O'Keeffe and the book's designer Leonard Baskin. AN EXTRAORDINARY COPY: Given by O'Keeffe's long-time agent Doris Bry to her friend and noted psychiatrist Dr. Lucie Jessner. With letters from Bry to Jessner discussing O'Keeffe's health and the origins of this book, with proofs of the pre-publication text and proof photos for some of the plates in the book. In a typed signed letter in this collection dated December 1, 1972, Doris Bry writes to Lucie Jessner about the origins of this book, "Some Memories of Drawings":"You probably don't remember -- but when I did the big O'K Drawings portfolio (which you have) -- and which has ten drawings -- I also intended to do a second volume of another ten -- which I never did -- and probably will never be able to do. -- But I also wanted to do a little and inexpensive paperback of the 20 drawings available to anyone -- with perhaps a little something by O'K about them -- and a one page biography and bibliography in the back -- well designed and well printed, etc. -- about 8 x 6 or 6 x 5" -- something like that."Now O'K has given me her comments -- text for the first ten -- she forgot about the second ten -- and I enclose a Xerox [included here]. -- If it isn't imposing on you, I'd be interested in your reaction -- if you have time to react. (This is text for the ten you have)"I feel one needs 20 to make a booklet that can be bound neatly -- and that ten doesn't work physically -- also it would be interesting if she would do another ten."This was just given to me as a fait accompli -- we did not talk about it or work on it -- Some of the material under I (the first two pages of her text) -- she has said to me at times somewhat differently -- and perhaps better -- and I am tempted to try to get her to expand it a little -- but then I also think it might be best just to take it as it is. --"as a reader would you be interested in this little book? or is it too sparse? or???"In 1973, Bry did succeed in getting the book produced and the result is a masterful collection of drawings O'Keeffe created between 1915 and 1963; illustrated with 21 charcoal and pencil drawings reproduced on Arches Silkscreen in 300-line screen offset lithography, each laid into a lettered folded leaf of Arches paper. Most drawings are accompanied by O'Keeffe's commentary -- her first writing intended for book publication -- explaining the details, setting, or inspiration for each work. Elegantly designed by Leonard Baskin and printed at The Meadows Press.??Also noteworthy in Bry's letters is a discussion of O'Keeffe's health, specifically her battle with macular degeneration, which began to strip O'Keeffe of her central vision in 1972. In an autograph letter dated May 8, 1972, Bry writes:"Much is quite terrible -- beyond words -- and then O'K remarkable and just acts, insofar as possible -- as if she can see. -- But the problem that it doesn't seem to stay static, but all worsens weekly for her rather inexorably..."In her December 1, 1972 letter, she notes:"I was glad to see O'K -- which I hadn't since early May -- as she seemed very much better in many ways than then. -- Generally in better health, better spirits (quite cheerful actually) -- and I did not have that terrible sense I had last spring of desperation and fatigue and tension which really worried me so much. -- She says her eyes are no better, though I feel from things she sees and says unconsciously that she is seeing more, and so does everyone around her. -- but she says it is that she has adapted to it. -- And yet I hope things will change for the better somehow. -- Her courage and attitude are remarkable -- and somehow I think she will find some way of painting again some time -- though she says not. -- but she does now begin to think of writing, using the little tape recorder -- so I hope something will come of this, and certainly encouraged it."Note: The Xeroxed proofs of O'Keeffe's text differ from the final version. The nine 8x10 inch proof photographs are loose in an envelope addressed to "Miss Georgia O'Keeffe c/o Bry".With two additional postcards from Bry to Jessner, a catalog illustrated with O'Keeffe's works (which Bry mentions in a letter to Jessner) in celebration of O'Keeffe being awarded the 1971 M. Carey Thomas Award by Bryn Mawr College, and a brochure for an O'Keeffe exhibition at The Downtown Gallery (1958).Some Memories of Drawings. New York: Atlantis Editions, 1974.

        The Story of Cupid and Psyche, with illustrations designed by Edward Burne-Jones, mostly engraved on the wood by William Morris; the Introduction by A.R. Dufty.

      Folio. 2 vols.; original cloth-backed patterned boards, leather spine labels, top edges gilt; 44 wood-engravings after designs by Edward Burne-Jones, mostly engraved by William Morris, and with 26 plates in the Introduction volume showing preliminary sketches for the engravings; a fine copy in the matching slipcase. Printed by Will and Sebastian Carter at the Rampant Lions Press. This is No. 206 of 270 numbered copies.. Volume I contains the Introduction by A.R. Dufty and the plates of preliminary sketches, Volume II contains the poem and the engravings. [Sold with] One of 100 portfolios containing a set of proofs of the 44 wood-engravings, this no. xciv. (Portfolio a little sunned) The limitation of this publication is slightly confusing. 130 copies numbered I - CXXX were issued with a portfolio containing a set of collotype prints of the 47 original drawings and a set of proofs of the 44 wood-engravings. There were then 270 copies numbered 1 to 270 of the two volumes. Additionally there were 100 portfolios numbered i to c each containg a set of the proofs of the 44 wood-engravings. We are offering here a combination of one of the 270 numbered two volume sets and a copy of the 100 portfolios of proofs. "Cupid and Psyche" is one of the twenty-four stories that make up William Morris's The Earthly Paradise, a poem in Chaucerian metres. Morris and Burne-Jones had planned to produce a great illustrated edition of the work which, though begun, was never completed, and an unillustrated commercial edition was published in 1868-70. The wood-block illustrations for "Cupid and Psyche," designed by Burne-Jones and mostly engraved by Morris, have survived and are here published for the first time in their context. For this edition the matrices of the Kelmscott Troy types were made available for casting and this becomes the first book printed in the type since 1898. Several of the original drawings were used as sources for new blocks, cut to illustrate Robert Bridges' poem "Eros & Psyche", published by the Gregynog Press in 1935.

This has seemed one good reason to compile a book 'out of' the remains of my performances, letting the language fall where it may. Let it be said simply 'She usually makes performances and has also made a book.' There can be no comparison, therefore no need for apology." - from Introduction. Unmarked. Binding tight.
