        High School Yearbook]: 1975 Kalibarb: The Kalibre [bound with several issues of] The Barblet

      DeKalb High School, DeKalb, IL 1975 - First and only edition. Screwbound printed yellow binder. Quarto. The wrapperbound yearbook, *The Kalibre*, bound with ten of twelve possible issues of the school newspaper, *The Barblet* (lacking issues seven and ten), for author Richard Powers's (here referred to mostly as Rick Powers) senior year of high school. Slight tears in the yellow cloth binder, some pages well-thumbed, student inscriptions in the yearbook, and a couple of leaves loose but sound, a very good example. Powers is pictured on at least three pages in the yearbook, twice in band pictures, and once in the National Honor Society, although curiously, he is not represented by a senior class picture. According to biographies of Powers he spent much of his high school time in Thailand, and only returned to DeKalb to finish high school, and was perhaps thus not present for the photo. He also appears at least three times in the issues of *The Barblet,* twice playing the cello, and once at a National Honor Society Assembly (we have by no means exhaustively searched the bound volume and may have missed other appearances). According to our research, Powers is the second most important graduate of the high school, after supermodel Cindy Crawford. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Moise and the World of Reason

      New York: Simon and Schuster. (1975). First. First edition. Fine in a slightly age-toned, else fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by Williams to actress Ruth Ford: "To Ruth with my heart on my sleeve. Love, Tennessee." In Williams' Memoirs he refers to Ford as "the wise and lovely actress, Ruth Ford, who seems to have been born with more worldly wisdom than I have accumulated even at this point in life." Ford, the Mississippi-born sister of surrealist author Charles Henri Ford, was a beautiful model and actress, first in Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre, and later in films and theater. Notably, she starred on Broadway in Jean Paul Sartre's No Exit in 1946, under the direction of John Huston (the last of five Broadway plays he directed). Her apartment in the Dakota became a salon for authors such as Williams, Edward Albee, Terrence McNally, and Truman Capote. A chance encounter between Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents in her Manhattan living room led to their collaboration, with her Dakota-neighbor Leonard Bernstein, on West Side Story. Similarly, she brought together Kay Thompson and Hilary Knight to create the celebrated stories of Eloise, the little girl who lived at the Plaza.Ford is well known also for her long friendship with William Faulkner, which began with her dating his brother Dean in the early 1930s. Faulkner was openly smitten with Ford for many years. He wrote his experimental 1951 title Requiem for a Nun, a sequel to his early and controversial novel Sanctuary, with her in mind. He further declared, to the consternation of his agent and publisher, that it was her dramatic property (Requiem for a Nun was a mixture of stage play and novel). Stage production of the title stalled for years, partly because Faulkner's experimental drama did not lend itself to live theatre, and partly because the producers were unsure of Ford's suitability. Faulkner was adamant that it was her dramatic property, and in 1959 she adapted the play herself and starred in its London production opposite her second husband, Zachary Scott. Her stage version received enthusiastic reviews in both London and New York, but did not fare so well with audiences and closed after a short run on Broadway. Ford continued to act on both stage and screen well into the 1980s. She passed away in 2009 at the age of 98. A wonderful inscription and nice association. .

        The Last Words of Dutch Schultz: A Fiction in the Form of a Film Script

      New York: Viking Press. 1975. First. First edition. Fine in a slightly age-toned, else fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by Burroughs to actress Ruth Ford: "For Ruth W. Ford, all the best from the Dutchman, William S. Burroughs." Ford, the Mississippi-born sister of surrealist author Charles Henri Ford, was a beautiful model and actress, first in Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre, and later in films and theater.

He further declared, to the consternation of his agent and publisher, that it was her dramatic property (Requiem for a Nun was a mixture of stage play and novel). Stage production of the title stalled for years, partly because Faulkner's experimental drama did not lend itself to live theatre, and partly because the producers were unsure of Ford's suitability. Faulkner was adamant that it was her dramatic property, and in 1959 she adapted the play herself and starred in its London production opposite her second husband, Zachary Scott. Her stage version received enthusiastic reviews in both London and New York, but did not fare so well with audiences and closed after a short run on Broadway. Ford continued to act on both stage and screen well into the 1980s. She passed away in 2009 at the age of 98. A nice association. .

        Douze lettres à Fautrier

      "Paroles peintes n°5", Odette Lazar-Vernet, paris 1975 - EDITION ORIGINALE préfacée par André Pieyre de Mandiargues, et illustrée de 16 GRAVURES à l'eau-forte de Jean FAUTRIER, dont deux hors texte. Rare exemplaire "du premier tirage refusé par l'éditeur", justifié et signé par Odette Lasar-Vernet qui en a biffé le numéro. Ce premier tirage était prévu à 107 exemplaires, le notre étant un des 80 sur vergé Isle de France. Les seize estampes de Jean Fautrier qui ornent ces lettres furent gravées vers 1944. Elles étaient prévues pour illustrer un texte de Paul Eluard, ANIMEE, projet qui ne vit jamais le jour. Trente ans plus tard, les plaques sont retrouvées et quelques épreuves imprimées par Jacques David. Odette Lasar Vernet entreprend alors une édition et demande à un jeune imprimeur parisien, Gabriel M. Casajus, de tirer les eaux-fortes pour accompagner douze lettres de Jean Paulhan. Le livre est achevé d'imprimer le 12 mai 1975, mais le tirage refusé par l'éditeur : il semble que l'impression des estampes, dont les plaques n'étaient pas en très bon état de conservation, ait donné quelques difficultés au tireur. C'est en tout cas l'hypothèse que retient Rainer Mason qui a établi le catalogue des gravures de Fautrier, annonçant ce tirage comme abandonné. Il est probable que ce premier tirage fut détruit, l'exemplaire d'André Pieyre de Mandiargues étant peut-être le seul rescapé. Un second tirage est donc entreprit par Georges Leblanc, taille-doucier plus expérimenté qui mène à bien le projet : l'édition définitive verra le jour le 17 septembre 1974.

        CONFESSIONS OF A CRAP ARTIST

      New York: Entwhistle Books,. 1975. Octavo,. cloth.. A fine copy without dust jacket as issued. (#119117). First edition. 1000 copies printed of which this is number 85 of 90 numbered copies signed by Dick. This variant has the "first edition" statement on the copyright page. In Dick's opinion, this novel was "easily the best of all his mainstream efforts." Written in 1959 in the midst of Dick's "exceedingly ambitious -- and totally unsuccessful -- attempt to break into the mainstream-novel market ... Graceful, wry, vulnerable, pessimistic and wise, they are novels less good only than the best of PKD's intense prime, which began immediately [with TIME OUT OF JOINT]." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 328.
