        The American Monument

      New York: The Eakins Press Foundation, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. vg. 1/2000. Oblong folio (12 x 17"). Unpaginated. [2] leaves (Title page, and a quote by Walt Whitman), [77] leaves (Photographs), [6] leaves (Text). Original triple screw post bound blue-green cloth with black lettering to spine and front cover.Splendidly illustrated throughout with 213 duo-tone photographs scrupulously reproduced and bound ledger-style, "The American Monument" is a humorous, lyrical, and excessive expression of a country's obsession with immortalizing itself. Writing in "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century," Vince Aletti describes "The American Monument" as "almost maniacally inclusive, rounding up everything from Plymouth Rock to a plaque commemorating the Pony Express in Salt Lake City and treating them with the same nonchalance. The doggedness of Friedlander's quest is at once astounding and hilarious... History stalks the landscape at every turn." A brilliant book, conceptually ambitious in the manner of the New Topographic school of Adams and Baltz, but with a deadpan wit that is Friedlander's own. Parr and Badger writing in "The Photobook: A History" go even further in their unqualified praise for this book: "The American Monument" is an encyclopedic lesson in how to put a picture together."One of 2,000 unnumbered copies.Slight age-toning to covers. Binding in overall good+ to very good, interior in very good condition.

        1 TLS (Typed Letter Signed) on the Wild Bunch, March 6, 1976

      1976. Typed on 8 1/2" x 11" paper, signed by Sam Peckinpah on March 6, 1976 from the Hotel Konigshorf where he was residing. The Wild Bunch was the first realistic violent film of the Old West. When the studio decided to screen it in Kansas City, the audience reacted violently, some were throwing up, others threatening the operator of the projector while Sam Peckinpaugh looked down with delight and said that he was ready to take on all comers himself if they burst into the booth. The studio issued instead a seriously cut version which made no sense but in this letter the fan wants to see the uncut version. Peckinpah here promises when he returns from Europe, he will be delighted to show the fan the real film (not the fan who claims to have seen the edited version 17 times). "Thanks you for your obvious support of the San Peckinpah Benevolent Fund. Every cent helps." A little damp staining to lower edge not affecting letter.

        Inuit Land Use and Occupancy Project : A Report Prepared by Milton Freeman Research Limited Under Contract with the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs. Volumes 1, 2 & 3 Complete (First Nations, Land Claims)

      Minister of Supply and Services Canada, Ottawa, ON 1976 - Illustrated card wraps, three 4to volumes (12 inches [30.5 cm] tall), pp. [v.1 Land Use and Occupancy], 263, color frontis, 56 maps ; [v.2 Supporting Studies with photo essay by Terry Pearce], 287, maps 57-84 (some fold-outs), 20 tables ; [v.3 Land Use Atlas], xxiii, errata, 153 color maps (some fold-outs) plus color map endpapers, index, notes, references. Volume covers with light wear, bumps and creases - text unmarked in all three volumes. A famous and landmark report which successfully demonstrated both use and occupancy by the Inuit of their traditional lands and waterways - thereby laying important groundwork for the Northwest Territories, Indigenous peoples and to some degree, helping to move towards a sort of Arctic "Declaration of Independence" through the Circumpolar Inuit Declaration on Arctic Sovereignty. From the preface "In February 1973 Inuit Tapirisat of Canada proposed to the Minister of Indian and Northern Affairs that research be undertaken to produce a comprehensive and verifiable record of Inuit land use and occupancy in the Northwest Territories of Canada. The record so obtained would delimit the present and past use and occupation of the land and marine environment and would categorize the uses which any particular area served. In view of the continuing role which land plays in defining the cultural and ecologic circumstances of Inuit society, the research was also to provide an explicit statement - by the Inuit - of their perceptions of the man-land relationship." (Freeman, 1976, p. 19). ISBN - v1 0660003996 ; v2 0660004003 ; v3 0660004011. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Light Years [Signed]

      New York: Random House, 1976. First Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine-. First Edition (so stated) of the author's master work, signed by Salter on the title page. 8vo: [2],308,[2]pp. Publisher's olive paper-covered boards stamped in gilt with author's monogram, cream-colored cloth spine lettered in lime and gilt, untrimmed fore-edge, pictorial dust jacket priced $7.95. Light sunning to board edges (as typical), closed tear at crown, else about fine, square, tight (seemingly unread), and bright. "It is an article of faith among readers of fiction that James Salter writes American sentences better than anyone writing today," says Richard Ford in his introduction to the Penguin Classics edition of Light Years. This exquisite, resonant work is a brilliant portrait of a marriage, the story of Nedra and Viri, whose favored life is centered around candlelit dinners, ingenious games with their children, enviable friends, and near-perfect days passed skating on a frozen river or sunning on the beach. But even as Salter lingers over the surface of their marriage, he shows the fine cracks spreading through it, flaws that will eventually mar the lovely picture beyond repair. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        The Ad Hoc bulletin (Marxist-Leninist) [13 issues of the newsletter produced by the FBI-financed pseudo-faction in the Communist Party, USA]

      the Committee, Chicago 1976 - Thirteen issues of the photoreproduced bulletin on 8.5x14 inch sheets stapled at upper left corner; length ranges from 9 to 16 pages per issue. Faint horizontal fold crease to all issues, minor toning to the first one. Issues included are vol. 7 nos. 3, 4; vol. 8 nos. 1 [with final page loose but present] and 3, vol. 9 nos. 1 and 2, vol. 10 nos. 1 and 2, vol. 11 no. 1, vol. 14 no. 3, a Special Edition on the Communist Party's 21st national convention in 1975 (this issue in 8.5x11 inch format), and two with inconsistent, divergent numbering, No. 3 vol. 2 (November 1975) and No. 4, vol. 1 (May 1976). The identity of the Ad Hoc Committee has long been unclear; some have claimed it was a secret faction in the Chicago branch of the CPUSA, though one wonders how such an ardently Maoist formation could have tolerated remaining in the CPUSA for so many years. The riddle has been resolved through declassified FBI documents. In the book "Heavy Radicals," Aaron J. Leonard and Conor A. Gallagher transcribe FBI documents showing that the Committee was actually a project of agent S.A. Stallings, designed to disrupt the CPUSA by creating "in the eyes of the CP the existence of a factional grouping within the Illinois district and nationally if possible which adheres to the Chinese interpretation of Marxism-Leninism." These bulletins, which make very passable use of M-L jargon and polemical style, were designed to sow discord and mistrust between revolutionaries with the ultimate goal of weakening the movement. Each issue includes a prominent call for funds to be sent to a PO Box, and it is possible that some of the content was also written and submitted by real believers, published in the pages of the Bulletin for additional verisimilitude.The earliest issue here, from June 1969, includes a piece on "Black liberation and working class solidarity" by the chairman (not named here, but apparently Donald Wright, who went on to disrupt other Marxist-Leninist organizations). For more on the FBI and the Ad Hoc Committee, see "The U.S. Domestic Intelligence Enterprise: History, Development, and Operations" by Darren E. Tromblay, beginning on page 383.

        Manipolazione di Cultura / Manipulation der Kultur

      Macerata: La Nuova Foglio Editrice, 1976 - Folio (379 × 242 mm), pp.[92]. 42 black-and-white photographs, captions in Italian and German. Brown endpapers. Black textured paper-covered boards. Light tapping to top edge, light wear to endpapers at hinges as often given the thickness of the paper the book is printed on. Black printed dust-jacket, text in white; lightly rubbed with minor crease to top edge, closed tear to rear panel at head of spine-fold. Original price ticket tipped in to rear endpaper. A near-fine copy. First edition. Manipolazione di Cultura is one of Fabio Mauri’s most significant works on the theme of the ideological instrumentalization of language. In this artists’ book, he appropriates photographs taken from German and Italian fascist sources. These are reproduced with part of the lower half of each image over-printed with a black band of varying width, seemingly representing the rising tide of fascism. Each image has a brief descriptive caption which undermines the ideological content: they burn books, they hide their traces, proof of competence will be given, they film everything, they all have the same idea, they eliminate the champions of new ideas. Scarce. Dematteis & Maffei, Libri d’artista in Italia: 1960-1998 (1691). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Roots.

      Doubleday, New York. 1976 - First edition. A 587 page novel. Cloth-backed boards.Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: ''November 12, 1976 - Decca, lovely, talented, dedicated friend and colleague - who has helped me to sweat this book through - the family of Kunta Kinte wishes the very warmest best to you and Bob and your family. With brotherly love! Alex Haley''. The recipient is Jessica Mitford, writer, academic, activist and, of course, one of the Mitford sisters. ''Bob'' is the civil rights lawyer Robert Neuhaft with whom she had two sons. Mitford was closely involved in the civil rights movement of the sixties, which is presumably when she met Alex Haley. Maya Angelou was another of her close friends. Interestingly enough, J.K. Rowling states that Mitford had the most influence on her writing, so much so that she named one her children Jessica.Tail of spine slightly bumped.

Late in the evening on Christmas Day, sitting around the fireplace in our living room which overlooks the Pacific, we remarked that of all the Christmas observances we have enjoyed -- at the White House, in California, in Florida, and at Camp David -- this as without question one of the best. We were fortunate that the whole family could be together…"" Read the entire in the image above.The former President writes about who was at his second Christmas after resigning: daughter Tricia and son-in-law Ed Cox, daughter Julie and son-in-law David Eisenhower, Irish setter King Timahoe, French poodle Vickie, Yorkshire terrier Pasha, and Manolo and Fina Sanchez, the Nixon's personal house-couple. Manolo did the chores, gardening, repairs, up-keep while Fina did the cleaning and cooking; they both did the shopping.After thanking Dreyfus for his ""delectable fruit cake,"" Nixon handwrites ""When you are down this way we would enjoy having you drop by fir dinner - (Informal - just fun!)""Financier Jack Dreyfus (1913-2009) was the founder of the Dreyfus Fund. In 1964, Life magazine called him the “Maverick Wizard Behind the Wall Street Lion,” in reference to the emblem of his fund and its aggressive marketing. Dreyfus, it said, was “the most singular and effective personality to appear in Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch.” His paternal grandfather was a first cousin of Alfred Dreyfus, the protagonist of the late 19th-century anti-Semitic scandal known as the Dreyfus Affair. Dreyfus sold his mutual fund company in 1970 and established the Dreyfus Health Foundation to pursue other medical applications for Dilantin which had cured his depression in the 1960s. In 2000, Dreyfus said that an account in The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon by Anthony Summers (New York: Viking, 2000) that he gave Dilantin to Richard Nixon in 1968 was correct. Dreyfus said he gave Nixon a bottle of 1,000 capsules of 100 milligrams each ''when his mood wasn't too good,'' and later gave him another bottle of 1,000 capsules."
