        Tributes to Robert Mitchner, Director of the Indiana University Writer's Conference

      (1975). A collection of sixteen one-page tributes to Robert Mitchner, the founder of the Indiana University Writer's Conference. The tributes, in the form of text and sketches, are all on individual leaves, most measuring 10.75" x 14.5. All but three pages appear to have been removed from a stapled binding. Wear to the left margin of the large pages where they were disbound, one page dampstained, and some glue residue to the verso of the three smaller pages along with some wear, very good or better. The tributes to Mitchner, dating from his retirement in 1975, are by writers, artists, and instructors who attended the conference. They vary from simple notes and letters of thanks to poems and illustrations. Among the most notable contributions are an Autographed Note Signed by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., a Typed Letter Signed from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tad Mosel, an Autographed Note Signed from Roger Zelazny, and a Typescript poem with illustrations from children's author and Newbery Medal winner Jean Lee Latham. Further details available upon request. .

Estado de conservación: Muy buen estado. Notas: La Carajicomedia es una parodia declarada de un poema dedicado al padre de la reina y escritopor el poeta preferido de Isabel I. El anónimo autor de la Carajicomedia lo declara abiertamente:«Síguese una especulativa obra intitulada Carajicomedia [.], ymitando el estilo de lasTrezientas del famosíssimo poeta Juan de Mena» 13. La parodia no se limita a desfigurar cínicamentelas coplas de las Trezientas, además remeda de forma burlesca el argumento del poema de Menay sigue, en la medida de lo posible, su esquema formal, como veremos a continuación:a) Una parte introductoria que contiene la dedicatoria al impotente Diego Fajardo, su historia,la invocación de Diego Fajardo a la Lujuria y la petición de ayuda a una puta vieja, alcahuetay hechicera.b) El cuerpo más extenso del relato lo ocupa la enumeración y descripción de prostitutas. Enun lugar lleno de prostitutas se comprueba su impotencia, otra vieja le ayudará y él le pideque sea su guía. En este viaje describirá a treinta y una prostitutas castellanas y tendrá unavisión de las tres ruedas. Describirá el orden de la Luna, el de Venus, el de Salamanca yToledo y el de Valencia, todos ellos llenos de prostitutas que también son descritas.c) Tras una definición de la Lujuria y un aviso a los maridos, el poema concluye con la muertedel carajo de Diego Fajardo.Para que la parodia del Laberinto sea completa, la Carajicomedia también tiene glosas en laparte de la enumeración y descripción de las prostitutas. Estas glosas constituyen la parte más crítica,mordaz, soez y divertida de la obra.Otros datos: Edición limitada de 10 ejemplares numerados del I al X ejemplar I/X conteniendo ademas una plancha de aguafuerte y un dibujo original

        PACIFIC (Board Wargame for 2 Players)

      Wild Hawthorn Press, Scotland 1975 - PACIFIC - Type A & B - Board Wargame for 2 Players, multiple by Ian Hamilton Finlay. Unused copy. Folding Board, Counters, & Instruction Sheet as issued. Very unusually this copy comes with the original mailing envelope (which has some notes by receiver on verso & to front edge. What is interesting about the cardboard envelope is it has the rare PACIFIC - The Non-Scale Wargame red rubber stamp top left. I have also added the original Wild Hawthorn Press flier advertising the game (mimeograph on blue paper, folded as issued) to make this an overcomplete copy with associated ephemera. Boardgame in wallet - unused - fine as issued. (handling marks to flier, rubber stamped envelope worn & marked as previously mentioned but stamp in very good condition). To quote from the Stonypath flier that advertised the boardgame : Pacific is not intended to be a scale simulation but a distillation of the Pacific naval conflict in WW2. In our opinion, it is a game with a classic - one might say epic ! - simpilicity and a potential for tactical complexity and dramatic excitement.Pacific has the quality and originality of all publications issuing from the Wild Hawthorn Press.

        [Archive]: A Collection of Six Vietnamese Silk Screen Posters

      [No place]: Phong phu [?]. [circa 1975]. Six original silk screen posters. Each measures about 15.5" x 18.5". Each is printed in six colors vibrant colors: purple, burgundy red, orange, blue, green, and gold. A very few short tears at some edges, else fine. A suite of compelling images of young women in traditional informal dress, four of which depict a woman being courted by a young man, and two that depict a pair of young women working together outside: one in a rice paddy field and one at the ocean. Each poster has two lines of text. Our Vietnamese is rusty, but the two lines of text appear to be couplets from proverbial items of folk wisdom pertaining to the agonies or follies of budding love, or couplets from the erotic poetry of Ho Xuan Huong, a famous female Vietnamese poet from the late 18th and early 19th Centuries. In particular Huong's poem "Bailing Water" closely reflects the poster depicting two women on a rocky coast maneuvering a bail between them with ropes, that they are dipping into the water of a river as it flows into the ocean. A rare set of somewhat mildly suggestive charged propaganda posters. .

        Salem's Lot

      Garden City: Doubleday. 1975. His second novel. Inscribed by King in the year of publication: "For ____, from your mother -- / I hope you enjoy it and have a Merry Christmas!/ Stephen King/ November 20, 1975." A small skinned spot on the front free endpaper makes this a near fine copy in a near fine, corner-clipped second issue dust jacket (with the printed price $7.95 and the reference to "Father Cody" in the flap text), with modest corner rubbing and a strip of offsetting to the rear panel. An attractive copy of this book, much better than usually found, and with the earliest King inscription we have seen in it. Early King books with contemporary inscriptions are extremely uncommon: the first printings were small and the books didn't sell particularly well. It wasn't until about 1980 that his books were bestsellers immediately upon publication. Also, King didn't do the extensive author tours that later became the norm for promoting books. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Mike Mandel: Untitled (Baseball-Photographer Trading Cards), Complete Set of 135 Cards

      Mike Mandel (self-published), Santa Cruz, California 1975 - First edition, first and only printing. 134 photo-offset lithographic reproductions of photographic portraits printed on individual "trading cards," with an additional card including a complete checklist of participating photographers. Photographs by Mike Mandel. Texts, statistics and quotes by the respective artists printed on verso (e.g., Ed Ruscha: "Everything you've ever wanted is right in your own backyard;" Bobby Heinecken: ".Critics often misspell his last name, hence he is often mistaken for the European beer player."). Each card 3-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches. Lithographic reproductions printed by Mike Roberts, Berkeley, California. The cards were originally packaged with sticks of chewing gum by Topps Chewing Gum, Brooklyn, New York. In 1975, Mike Mandel traveled around the U.S. with baseball equipment and uniforms to produce a series of portraits of important and influential photographers, curators, art historians and critics. The resulting cards were, and still are, traded by those in the field. Out of print. CONDITION: Fine (all cards).

        Michael Snow: Cover to Cover

      Nova Scotia College of Art & Design and New York University Press, Halifax, Nova Scotia and New York 1975 - First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Photographically illustrated cloth-covered boards, no dust jacket as issued. Artist's book by Michael Snow. Photography by Keith Lock. Photography and prints by Vince Sharp. Unpaginated, with 312 full-bleed black and white plates. 9 x 7 inches. Out of print. Extremely scarce. CONDITION: Fine. A Near Mint copy. [Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).] Conceptual artist Michael Snow here presents an intriguing artist's book that engages with and questions the nature of photographic veracity and the legibility of surfaces--a stance that is somewhat akin to the work of his contemporaries Kenneth Josephson, Robert Cumming and Duane Michals. As its title implies, Cover to Cover, which contains no text save the colophon, can be read forwards and backwards, with both sections converging towards the center. Both the front and back covers are illustrated with a detailed photograph of a wood-paneled door, and as the reader progresses through the pages, which unfold as a quasi-cinematic non-linear narrative, a succession of full-bleed images leads into and through spaces and surfaces that continuously vacillate between illusory physical and representational existence. The appearance of figures, cameras, images within images, blank sheets of paper, windows and doorways on each page enacts a slippage that renders the photographic images and their referents unstable. The result is an important book that is difficult to put down, challenging readers to read and reread its imagery almost compulsively. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
