        SHADE

      Seattle: Mill Mountain Press, 1975. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. 8vo. Plain printed wraps. Near fine. Drawings by Ginny Crouch. Scarce collection from this cult poet, whose significance and importance have only grown since his 1978 suicide. Shade was the fourth book of Stanford's to be published by Mill Mountain Press. "Second edition" stated, though in fact this is the first, the previous "1973" edition noted with Stanford's other titles in this book never having actually been published. Almost certainly a bit of bibliographic mischief perpetrated by the poet. Additionally, copyright page notes "Limited Edition," though no limitation stated. But in our experience probably the scarcest of the seven titles published during his lifetime. Though we are aware of sales of each of his other books, we know of none for this title. OCLC shows just four holdings. Rare work from arguably the most original poetic voice to emerge from the 1970's.

        [Photographie originale signée] Madrid, 1933. [Dédicace autographe de Cartier-Bresson à Paola et Jean-Michel Folon]

      1975. Photo. Illus. by Henri Cartier-Bresson. Très bon. Aucune reliure. Dédicacé par l'auteur. 40,5 x 30,5 cm (feuille), 36,2 x 24,5 cm (image, cadre noir de 2 mm compris). Photo de 1933, tirage gélatino-argentique postérieur sur papier semi-mat à grain perlé circa 1975. Amicale dédicace autographe signée de Henri Cartier-Bresson à l'illustrateur Jean-Michel Folon et à son épouse, la galeriste Paola Folon-Ghiringhelli. Ce tirage fut probablement donné à Folon en remerciement d'une tribune publiée par ce dernier dans "Le Monde" en 1974 pour prendre sa défense suite à la polémique suscitée par Cartier-Bresson dans une interview au même journal, où il affirmait : "la photo ne veut rien dire, elle ne dit rien, elle ne prouve rien". Cette photographie est reproduite dans la plupart des livres consacrés au photographe, parmi lesquels GALASSI "Henri Cartier-Bresson : premières images" (p. 97), BNF "De qui s'agit-il" (n° 150), DELPIRE "Henri Cartier-Bresson photographe" (n° 154).

In Freiburg im Breisgau wurde er in den Johanniterorden aufgenommen. Später erhielt er die Priesterweihe in Basel. 1522 wurde er Prior im Ritterhaus Bubikon im Zürcher Oberland und erhielt das Pfarramt der dortigen Kirchgemeinde. In seiner Zürcher Zeit schloss er sich dem Reformator Huldrych Zwingli an. 1529 heiratete er die Tochter des Chronisten Heinrich Brennwald (1478-1551), dessen handschriftliche Unterlagen er - wie andere auch - später für seine Chronik verwenden sollte. 1543 wurde er Pfarrer in Stammheim (heute Unter- und Oberstammheim). Für seine Verdienste erhielt er 1548, im Jahr der Drucklegung seiner Chronik, das Bürgerrecht der Stadt Zürich, wohin er sich 1561 zurückzog. Johannes Stumpfs bedeutendstes Werk ist seine reich illustrierte topografische und historische Chronik der Alten Eidgenossenschaft von 1547/48. Den überwiegenden Teil der Illustrationen (400 Holzschnitte) schuf Heinrich Vogtherr der Ältere.

        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. .

        Bricklin II Concept Art

      1975. Mixed media on paper. Signed, dated, and numbered "#02". 10 x 22 1/2 inches. Framed. Alexander Sarantos Tremulis (1914-1991) was the designer of the production version of the 1948 Tucker Torpedo and was America's most original design theorist of the post-war era. He was born in Chicago and without any training in drawing or engineering joined the design team of Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg in 1933. He was chief stylist when the company failed in 1937. He worked for GM, Chrysler and Custom Motors in Beverly Hills, which designed unique cars for movie stars. During World War II, he worked for the Air Force designing aircraft, and in the process drew what may have been the first visualizations of extra-terrestrial transport: flying saucers. After the war, Tremulis worked with Preston Tucker, and later for Ford. He formed his own consulting firm in the 1960's. This quite beautiful design and other similar ones were made for the ill-fated Bricklin car company, which existed from 1974 to 1976, and whose demise had nothing to do with Tremulis's designs. He was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in 1982.

        One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

      HBO/Cannon Video NY: HBO/Cannon Video. (n.d). A VHS tape of the 1975 Academy Award-winning movie based on Kesey's novel. Signed by Kesey on the case, over the picture of Jack Nicholson, who himself won an Academy Award for the lead role. The fact that it is signed over the photo of Nicholson may be a statement on Kesey's part: he was known to have hated the casting of Nicholson as McMurphy and reportedly even considered having his own name taken off the movie in protest. He had thought that a more physically imposing actor, such as Gene Hackman, would have been more appropriate than Nicholson. Kesey's son, Zane, said that this was the only copy of the movie he had ever heard of being signed by his father, because of how thoroughly unhappy with the film he was. Fine in a very good, rubbed case, with a small sticker removal abrasion. Needless to say, scarce signed. . First Edition.

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

      DeKalb High School DeKalb, IL: DeKalb High School. 1975. First. 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. .

        River-Crossing Pa Ndau

      The Hmong people of Laos are a tribal people in the highlands of Southeast Asia. They were recruited by the C.I.A. to fight against the communist Vietnamese and Pathet Lao in the 1960s, and they suffered the highest casualty rate of any group in the war. After the victories of the North Vietnamese and the Pathet Lao in 1975, the communist governments retaliated against the "traitors." Many Hmong were killed and others fled across the Mekong River into Thailand, seeking freedom, or at least refuge. For a period of time, the largest population of Hmong in the world, outside of Laos, existed in a Thailand refugee camp. A number resettled in the West, including tens of thousands in the U.S. Pa ndau is a traditional Hmong textile folk art -- "pa" is Hmong for flower, "ndau" for cloth. Decorated cloths can be as small as postage stamps or as large as quilts and can incorporate various kinds of stitcheries, as well a various images or patterns. The central image of a pa ndau generally tells a story. One thematic development in traditional Hmong pa ndau since the end of the Vietnam war was the "river-crossing" pa ndau, representing the flight from Laos across the Mekong River and into Thailand. Approximately 34" x 34", this embroidered pa ndau shows a traditional scene of village life in the highlands of Laos, with planting, cooking, and other traditional activities taking place, followed by -- as one approaches the foreground -- the arrival of armed Pathet Lao soldiers herding villagers at gunpoint. Still closer to the foreground, a number of villagers have escaped into the river, some on rafts, some in boats, some floating singly. On the other side of the river, they are greeted by Thai troops, and escorted to safety in Thai vehicles. The unnamed artist who created this pa ndau escaped from a Pathet Lao prison camp with her children, hiding out in the forest for several weeks until she was eventually recaptured; her captors knocked her teeth out with rifle butts after her recapture. She eventually escaped again and made it across the river, finally emigrating to the U.S. River-crossing pa ndau -- a modern expression of a traditional Hmong art-are extremely scarce, and this is a particularly dramatic example. Fine. . First Edition.

      (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.

        'Salem's Lot

      New York: Doubleday. NF/F. 1975. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 10, 20, 25. 0385007515 . Signed by author. 1st edition, 1st printing, Doubleday, 1975. This 1st printing (stated on copyright page) book's dustjacket had 3 issues: the 1st rumored to be only 25 copies priced at $8.95, all kept in-house by Doubleday and the one known to have come on the market commanded a price of around $25,000. This is the 2nd issue dustjacket - still 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 a price of $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 spots to outer page edges near the back of the text block, and on the top of the front free end page there's a previous owner's name plus in different writing her place born and date and place died and date. 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's 2nd book, and a 'really' nice Fine example of the fragile dustjacket (usually found chipped and tattered). Even the red part of the lettering on the spine isn't faded as you usually find it. Only things keeping it from being As New is an occasional skinny trace of white showing through the black at the front flap fold line, and a couple of very tiny professional edge repairs on the reverse side that show an also just a tiny trace of the black used in the color matching on that reverse side. A collector's copy. Made into a TV series, which is what really got King's career started. ; 8-7/16" x 5-3/4"; 439 pages; Signed by Author .

        Dog Soldiers

      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've carried this edition only a handful of times over the years. Without question, the scarcest of Stone's trade editions. . First Edition. Hardcover.
