        ROCKY (THE 1976 MOVIE): Combined Continuity List.

      [Los Angeles]:: Arlene Cooper Service,. 1976.. First edition of the Combined Conitnuity List for the award-winning 1976 movie. Written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, "Rocky" tells the story of Rocky Balboa, an uneducated but kind-hearted working class Italian-American boxer working in the slums of Philadelphia where he starts out as a small-time club fighter and later gets a shot at the world heavyweight championship. Also starring Talia Shire as Adrian, Burt Young as Adrian's brother Paulie, and Burgess Meredith as Rocky's trainer. Made on a budget of just over $1 million and shot in 28 days, this sleeper hit earned $225 million in global box office receipts, became the highest-grossing film of 1976, and went on to win three Oscars, including Best Picture. Considered one of the greatest sports films ever made, "Rocky" was ranked second (after "Raging Bull") by the American Film Institute in 2008. This "Combined Continuity List" contains cut-by-cut descriptions of all camera shots, including movements of cameras and actors within the shots and the dialogue spoken. Primarily used as a delivery requirement between production companies and studios, Combined Continuities serve as a legal description of a film or television project for copyright purposes and are used for dubbing, subtitling and closed-captioning work. A good "Continuity," especially a "Combined Continuity" such as this one, provides a comprehensive transcription of the finished film and is often the only archived, word-by-word, shot-by-shot, scene-by-scene, record of a film. 142 mimeographed 8.5 x 14" pages printed on rectos only; bound by metal clasp at top and with light-green front cover page. Some curling to corners of first few leaves but still very good or better. .

        Original Photographs of Mike Oldfield

      , 1976. 1976. Fine. Five photographs of progressive rock and avant-garde composer Mike Oldfield taken by London Sunday Times photography Sally Soames, along with manuscript copies of several articles written by her Sunday Times colleague, music critic Derek Jewell. Fine. The photographs, which measure 8" x 10", capture a young Oldfield with guitar in hand sitting in his studio, outside in his yard, and with his dog. Each is stamped on the back by Soames and additionally signed in ink by Jewell. The photographs were likely taken for a story in the Sunday Times and later included in the hard-to-find 1983 songbook, Mike Oldfield: 10: 1973-1983, for which Jewell provided the biography. In a letter sent to a representative at Virgin Music in 1983 (included here as a holograph draft and typed carbon), Jewell references the photographs: "I found some treasured photographs of Mike taken in 1976 by Sally Soames. I offer them to you for use in the book should you need anything more - but you must return them, since they're an important part of my collection." Accompanying them is Jewell's manuscript copy of the songbook biography, two pieces about Oldfield and progressive music published in the book The History of Rock, and assorted correspondence and press releases. From the person files of Jewell.

        FREIBORD. Zeitschrift für Literatur und Kunst. 96 Nummern.

      8 (9 Hefte in 4). Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen. Ca. 95 Seiten je Heft. Orig.-Kart. - FREIBORD wurde 1976 von Bernt Burchhart, Wolfgang Hemel, Gerhard Jaschke, Camillo Schaeffer, Hermann Schürrer und Ingrid Th. Wald gegründet und wollte zu Beginn Literatur und Kunst mit Kulturkritik und politisch-sozialem Engagement verbinden. Rasch wurde die Zeitschrift zu einem wichtigen Veröffentlichungsort für AutorInnen des literarischen Undergrounds, verstand sie sich doch als Avantgarde-Publikation. Trotz einiger finanzieller Schwierigkeiten überstand die Zeitschrift die ersten Jahre und fand sowohl in Österreich als auch international Anerkennung, nicht zuletzt weil sie sich auch bald internationalen Beiträger(inne)n öffnete. Ab Heft 30 übernahm Gerhard Jaschke allein die Herausgeberrolle sowie die gesamte Produktion der Hefte. Neben gemischten Heften erschienen Themenhefte zu einzelnen Künstlern wie Werner Herbst, Hermann Nitsch, Andreas Okopenko oder Hermann Schürrer sowie Dokumentationen von Symposien und einigen "Wiener Vorlesungen zur Literatur". (Quelle: http://www.onb.ac.at/oe-literaturzeitschriften/Freibord/Freibord.htm).

      New York City, NY: Da Capo Press, 1976 - 1st Printing. Unpaginated. Published in 1976. The photographer's breakthrough debut collection. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run (of an estimated 500 copies) as a softcover original. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Peter Hujar and Peter Mohring: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Peter Hujar. Essay by Susan Sontag, which remains one of the best pieces ever written on the photographer. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is exemplary in every respect. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Peter Hujar's "Portraits In Life And Death". The first and only collection published in his tragically brief lifetime. A perfect book, it begins with a suite of indelible portraits of Fran Lebowitz, Susan Sontag, Divine, John Waters, William S. Burroughs, Edwin Denby, and Candy Darling, among others, portraits of The Living taken in contemplative "death poses", as if each subject was thinking about mortality, including his or her own. They were all photographed either lying down or seated with their eyes closed on what appears to be the exact same spartan bed (which it was, Hujar's bed in his just-as-spartan apartment). The collection then cuts, suddenly and volcanically, to the now-classic sequence of photographs that Hujar took of The Dead in the catacombs of Italy (which captivated and were photographed by other great figures such as Avedon). Hujar's innate morbidity makes these portraits compelling, superior to almost anyone else's in their evocation of death, "living portraits of death" (Toni Morrison), and as such, unsurpassed in the history of photography. Hujar was a Modernist whose twin themes of vitality/morbidity went against the most facile trend of his and our time, "post-modernism", which he derisively called "Looks-Like-Art". As a result, he never gained the fame he deserved in his lifetime. The purity of Hujar's art bewildered the cognoscenti who first saw them: Why were they too simple, too quiet, too spare? Although still largely unknown to the general public, Hujar now enjoys a global cult following, with collectors forking over tens of thousands of dollars for the few surviving vintage prints, most of which Hujar sold for $100 apiece to help pay for his medical bills when he was felled by AIDS. The dying Hujar calmly reassured Nan Goldin and Annie Leibovitz, two of his closest friends, that their grief was unnecessary because he and his work will be remembered posthumously through these portraits of life/death's "sweet poetry and panic" (Susan Sontag). An absolute "must-have" title for Peter Hujar collectors. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: Copies available online command unheard-of prices even if they have every imaginable flaw that a fragile softcover is prone to. You name the flaw, other copies have it. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. 29 plates. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy.
