        Original Limited Edition Etchings, Signed 5x

      Zurich: Coron-Verlag, 1975. First edition. Fine. [1973, 1974]. A Fine set of four original etchings by Gunter Grass, each SIGNED BY GUNTER GRASS, housed in a Near Fine marbled-gray stiff cardboard folio also SIGNED BY GUNTER GRASS on the title label, published in a Limited Edition of 70 copies, of which this is copy 69, together with the original custom cardboard mailing box. Each of the four etchings has been signed, dated, and numbered in charcoal by Gunter Grass, who also signed and numbered the title pastedown residing on the folio's front cover in blue ink. (One of the etchings is number 59 from a limitation of only 60.) Each Etching is loosely inserted into the folio and is there protected by a loosely inserted tissue guard (each in very good condition). The Etchings themselves are in excellent condition and are printed on high-linen handmade paper suitable for framing. The Folio measures approximately 30" X 21" and each etching is printed on a sheet measuring 19-3/4” X 25-1/2”. Each Etching is in Fine condition and is untitled. (Were we to give titles to the etchings, the titles would be: "Partially Eaten Peaches" (59/60, 1973), A Study of Three Fish (79/80, 1973), A Study of the Scorpion (79/80, 1973), and "Rescue from a Fish" (79/80, 1974). The Etching sheets are much larger in size that usually seen and the issues Limitation is much smaller than usually is seen. Gunter Grass won the 1999 Nobel Prize in Literature in recognition of his "frolicsome black fables [which] portray the forgotten face of history". The original mailing carton shows that the folio was sent to 25 Marktgasse Bern, Switzerland to the family of Alfred Scherz & Co., Bern, Switzerland, publishing house and rare booksellers (which ultimately sold all its assets to the Holtzbrinck Publishing Group in 1998). An important publishing house, Scherz played a key role in introducing, in German translation, the works of Winston Churchill, Eisenhower, George Patton, Field Marshall Montgomery, President Harry Truman, Pearl Buck, Louis Bromfield, A.J. Cronin, and Thomas Wolfe. A wonderful set of UNUSUALLY LARGE ETCHINGS ISSUED IN AN UNUSUALLY SMALL LIMITATION, each SIGNED BY THE NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING GUNTER GRASS, issued in a Folio ALSO SIGNED BY GUNTER GRASS. RARE.

        Salem&#39;s Lot

      New York: Doubleday. NF/F. 1975. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 0385007515 . Signed by author. 1st edition, 1st printing, Doubleday, 1975. This 1st printing (stated on copyright page) book&#39;s dustjacket had 3 issues: the 1st rumored to be only 25 copies priced at $8.95, all kept in-house by Doubleday and never published with the book. This is the 2nd issue dustjacket - very scarce because of the Father Cody mistake on the front flap (later corrected in the 3rd issue to Father Callahan) that was price clipped by Doubleday and repriced at $7.95 printed beside the publisher clip. The book has the required (to be a real 1st printing) Q37 code at the lower end of the gutter of the last text page. The book is Near Fine+. Straight, clean, tight, no binding spots or soiling, with just slight softening to the cloth at spine ends and a few very small, very faint tanned spots to outer page edges near the back of the text block, and on the top of the front free end page the previous owner&#39;s name plus in different writing her place and date of birth and place and date of death. The book is SIGNED by Stephen King on the title page, right below his publisher printed name - just his name with no inscription. A lovely example of King&#39;s 2nd book, and a Fine example of the fragile dustjacket (usually found chipped and tattered). Even the red part of the lettering on the spine isn&#39;t faded as you usually find it. Only things keeping it from being As New is a tiny trace of white showing through the black at the front flap fold line, and a couple of very tiny professional edge repairs. A true collector&#39;s copy. Made into a TV series, which is what really got King&#39;s career started. ; 8-7/16" x 5-3/4"; 439 pages; Signed by Author .

        Support the MPLA in Angola Original Poster - San Francisco Poster Brigade, People&#39;s Movement for the Liberation of Angola

      San Francisco: Wilfred Owen Brigade, 1975. Original Print. Very Good +. Wilfred Owen Brigade; Rachael Romero. Support the MPLA in Angola Original Poster. San Francisco: Wilfred Owen Brigade, 1975. Linocut, black ink on heavy white paper, image measures approx. 13 by 22 1/2-inches, the paper measures 17 1/2 by 23-inches, light red stamp of the &#147;Wilfred Owen Brigade&#148; in the lower right margin. Pin holes at each corner of the print and one at center top. Creases on upper right corner and an old repaired tear and tiny nick on left edge (none affect image). A remarkably well-preserved copy of this truly scarce graphic. This block-print was created by Rachael Romero in 1975, the same year she co-founded the San Francisco Poster Brigade. The SFPG was originally called the Wilfred Owen Brigade after the poet who was killed in action during the First World War, but, as Romero says, &#147;no-one knew who Wilfred Owen was so soon changed the name to San Francisco Poster Brigade.&#148; The SFPB existed from 1975 &#150; 1982, though Romero remains an active artist engaged in social issues. The MPLA &#150; the leftist People&#39;s Movement for the Liberation of Angola &#150; Labour Party &#150; has ruled Angola since the country&#146;s independence from Portugal in 1975. During 1975, when this posted was created, the United States was heavily involved in supporting the MPLA&#146;s opposition during the Angolan Civil War, which lasted until 2002.

        Humboldt&#39;s Gift [Signed Rare Unrevised Proofs]

      New York: The Viking Press, 1975. First edition [Rare Unrevised Proofs]. Wrappers. Fine. A Near Fine to Fine Rare copy of the Unrevised Proofs for Humboldt&#39;s Gift, SIGNED BY SAUL BELLOW on the title page, issued prior to the much more common Advance Reading Copy for this work; Saul Bellow&#39;s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, an exploration of mental instability and how it relates to genius. The book&#39;s central character, Charlie Citrine, is based on Delmore Schwartz, the American Poet and Short Story writer who, in 1959, became the youngest-ever Bollingen Prize winner and who, in his later life suffered from Alcoholism and mental illness. One of the 20th Century&#39;s most important authors, Saul Bellow was a three-time winner of the National Book Award for Fiction (The Adventures of Augie March, Herzog, and Mr. Sammler&#39;s Planet), and, as noted above, won the Pulitzer Prize for Humboldt&#39;s Gift. The novel also played a part in Bellow&#39;s winning the 1976 Nobel Prize in Literature "for the human understanding and subtle analysis of contemporary culture that are combined in his work". This is a Near Fine to Fine copy of the Rare Unrevised Proofs for this novel (issued prior to, and in numbers more limited than, the much more common Advance Reading Copy), showing a bit of shelf soiling to the bottom of the closed page block&#39;s ends and some quite minor sunning to the spine. Copies of the Unrevised Proof&#39;s are quite scarce, and signed copies are absolute hen&#39;s teeth. A Near Fine to Fine copy of the RARE UNREVISED PROOFS for one of Saul Bellow&#39;s most important works, both WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE and A MEANINGFUL CONTRIBUTOR TO BELLOW&#39;S WINNING THE NOBEL PRIZE, SIGNED BY SAUL BELLOW.

        Original watercolor artwork for ABA 75 Convention

      c. 1975. Watercolor on paper. Image area measures approximately 8 by 11 1/2 inches. Matted and framed. This illustration was used on the cover of the May 19th, 1975 edition of Publisher&#39;s Weekly, which featured an article on the 1975 American Booksellers Association Convention. The scene shows a typical Gorey character with enormous golden wings proclaiming "ABA 75" upon them in red. The mustachioed man, dressed in slacks, a tweed sportcoat, yellow sweater and green bow-tie, hovers bat-like over a small crowd of characters wielding books, each of whom has a speech-bubble pitch above them. The faded burlesque dancer in a diaphanous flapper-style dress, feather headdress, and festooned with beads holds up her "Follies of the Follies" and explains that "I still have all my costumes to wear to book-and-author luncheons." Next to her, a small boy pitches his "exposé of group activities in an Eastchester kindergarten" entitled "Plasticine & Clothes Pins." A barefoot, bearded beach-bum in a poncho, an apron-wearing aspiring cookbook author, and a man in a plaid 3-piece leisure suit round out this assembly. Some of the details here suggest that Gorey, who was no stranger to book-related events such as this, may have attended this convention. Writing in the June 16th, 1975 issue of the New Yorker, Lillian Ross observed that "All over the convention, the word used for people whose names appeared on the covers of books was &#39;author&#39; (never &#39;writer&#39;)." Further on, she noted the presence of "two dozen publishers who were beating the drum for cookbooks," and she likened the experience of walking the aisles to "walking an old Coney Island path between sideshow hawkers." Gorey adhered a small paste-over correction to the leg of one of the characters, revealing insight into the artist&#39;s process. A fine, colorful example of Gorey&#39;s commercial work that is especially appealing for its book-oriented content.

        Dog Soldiers [Inscribed Association Copy of Scarce British Edition]

      London: Secker & Warburg. (1975). The first British edition of his second novel, winner of the National Book Award and one of the best novels to link the impact of the Vietnam war on American society in the Sixties to the dark side of that era -- the official corruption and the underside of the drug experiences of a generation. An unaccountably scarce edition. Reportedly 2500 copies were printed but it turns up very seldom, far less often than the British A Hall of Mirrors, which is reported to have had a first printing of only 1000 copies. Printed in the U.S. and with a similar binding to the U.S. edition, but with a completely different dust jacket design. This copy is inscribed by the author to his bibliographer, Ken Lopez, "with best wishes." Faint marks on foredges and endpages; near fine in a near fine dust jacket with some of the usual fading to the spine lettering. We&#39;ve carried this edition only a handful of times over the years. Without question, the scarcest of Stone&#39;s trade editions. . First Edition. Hardcover.

First edition, one of reportedly less than 1000 copies printed. Wolff&#39;s first novel concerns a Special Forces lieutenant and a sergeant serving as advisors to a Vietnamese Infantry Division. Ugly Rumours was never published in the United States and Wolff has refused to list it among his "previous publications." His 1994 memoir, In Pharoah&#39;s Army, alludes somewhat derisively to a novel he was writing while serving in Vietnam-presumably Ugly Rumours. A superior fine/fine example of this important novel.

        Three Notebooks of Sketches and Plans for Installations, with related material

      N.p., Various dates, mostly circa 19. Three composition books. Small quartos. Modest wear, mostly Near Fine. Illustrated entirely by Ben Talbert, one of the most important artists in the Los Angeles circle that revolved around Wallace Berman and his publication Semina. Berman and his circle were at the forefront of avant-garde cultural and artistic experimentation on the West Coast, in effect, the western equivalent of Andy Warhol and his Factory workers, with sensibilities representing the Beat and early counterculture movements. & & These notebooks are from Talbert&#39;s most important period, and the most important period for his circle, when he was directly influenced by and collaborating with Berman, and most of the artworks presage Talbert&#39;s most cherished and representative themes - nudes, intense sexuality, S&M scenes, and handwritten and illustrated plans for installations, assemblages, collages, or sculpture. Several drawings and plans are initialed and dated, although most are not, as normal for sketchbooks.& & Related material laid in includes several nude and mildly sexual photographs of Talbert and his then-girlfriend, Gayle Davis, a model and exotic dancer who helped him recover from a mental and physical breakdown in the early 1970s. The photos include ones used by them as Christmas Greetings, other clothed photographs of the couple, a handmade Valentine from Gayle to Talbert, several vintage color photographs of Talbert&#39;s framed work, a couple of different invitations to memorial retrospectives of his works (after his untimely death in 1975 from a drug overdose at the age of 42), and several additional drawings by Talbert on a variety of different sizes of paper. The sketches, ranging from fully detailed drawings to impressionistic nudes, are executed in a variety of media: pencil, pen and ink, marker, gouache, colored pencil, watercolor, and a few in ball-point pen. & & 69 pages of partially and fully executed drawings bound in, plus an additional 5 laid in, for a total of 74 pages of drawings. There are 21 pages of handwritten and illustrated plans for installations, plus another 2 laid in for a total of 23 pages. There are about 14 pages of drawing exercises bound in, where Talbert attempted to draw every conceivable object (often more than a dozen objects to a page). There is one additional drawing mounted and used as a greeting card that we are reasonably certain is by Talbert, as it is similar to his style and preferred subject matter (a spurting penis), but whose inscription: "Sam - Luv, Tony," is from Tony Scibella, a Venice Beach and Denver based poet, collage-maker, and bookman who later married Gayle Davis after Talbert&#39;s death. Sam was his nickname for his first wife Julianne.& & While the drawings are appealing and interesting, the plans for Pop installations, assemblages, and sculptures are fascinating, especially considering the time in which they were conceived. They include chastity-belts shaped and illustrated as police badges, and many variations on altered televisions, mostly with sexual twists and innuendoes.& & Talbert&#39;s work was the subject of a retrospective exhibit at the Andrew Roth Gallery in New York in March of 2007. This previously unrecorded material, representing vital and important work for an overlooked but important experimental artist in the most interesting period of his career.

        Sorcerer (Original screenplay for the 1977 film)

      Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1975. Revised Script for the 1977 film, "Sorcerer" (dated two years prior to the film&#39;s release), directed by William Friedkin, based on the 1950 novel, "The Wages of Fear," by Georges Arnaud, written for the screen by Walon Green, with a soundtrack by Tangerine Dream, and starring Roy Scheider. & & The plot of William Friedkin&#39;s suspense thriller originated with the same Georges Arnaud novel that inspired Henri-Georges Clouzot&#39;s French suspense classic "The Wages of Fear" (1953). Roy Scheider, Bruno Cremer, Francisco Rabal, and Amidou play four men who, for various reasons, cannot return to their own countries. They end up in a dismal South American town where an American oil company is seeking out courageous drivers willing to haul nitroglycerin over 200 miles of treacherous terrain. The four stateless men have nothing to lose, and besides, they&#39;ll be paid $10,000 apiece and be granted legal citizenship if they survive. The suspense is almost unbearable at times, even outdistancing the tension level of "The Wages of Fear" in certain scenes, in particular a famous set piece wherein one of the trucks must cross a rope bridge in the middle of the Amazon--and in the middle of a monsoon. & & Olive wrappers with no titles. Title page present, with a date of August 1, 1975 and credits for screenwriter Green and novelist Arnaud. 156 leaves, mimeograph, eye-rest green stock with blue, pink, and yellow revision pages throughout, dated variously between 8/28/75 and 9/8/75. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus with yapped edges and a few short closed tears, bound with three gold brads.
