      London: George Allen & Unwin,, 1975 Wolff, Tobias. UGLY RUMOURS. London: George Allen & Unwin, 1975. Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket. First edition, one of reportedly less than 1000 copies printed. Wolff'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'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. One of the most difficult Viet Nam titles to acquire especially in condition. A beautiful copy.. 1st Edition.

        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'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'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'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'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'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'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's suspense thriller originated with the same Georges Arnaud novel that inspired Henri-Georges Clouzot'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'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.

        Richard Lindner

      Paris: Fernand Mourlot, (1975). Elephant folio. (38)ff. One of 150 copies. Contains ten lithographs measuring 28 1/2 by 20 3/4 inches, each signed by the artist, Richard Lindner, and numbered and counter-initialed by Fernand Mourlot, the printer/publisher who produced the lithographs. In his introduction, Ionesco describes Lindner as "one of the great contemporary masters. His work lies within the realm of caricature, painting, and theater. It is interpretation of reality, but reality is not realistic." Mourlot, who worked with all the great artists of the twentieth century, writes that Lindner created ten original gouaches and watercolors for this series, supervised the transfer to the stones, corrected the colors, retouched the plates, and oversaw the printing with such a perfectionist's eye that "only Marc Chagall forced us to run the plates so many times through the presses." An extremely fine copy, loose as issued, in a printed quarter-vellum clamshell box.
