        William Eggleston’s Guide

      New York: The Museum of Modern Art, 1976 - 8vo (228 × 228 mm), pp.112. 48 colour photographs and 1 black-and-white portrait of Eggleston. Essay by John Szarkowski. Black endpapers. Black leatherette-covered boards, spine and upper side lettered in gilt, colour photographic reproduction affixed to a debossed panel on front; foxing to page edges. Foot of spine slightly skewed. Near-fine. First edition. The adoption of colour photography, in the late 1960s and early 1970s, by William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, and others was not without precedent. Nonetheless, perhaps because of its commercial associations, colour photography had been slow to find acceptance in the art world. Eggleston’s solo exhibition in 1976 had the distinction of being the first exhibition of colour photography at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. As such, it and this catalogue which accompanied it are often credited with legitimatising colour photography for the serious American museum-attending audience. Szarkowski noted Eggleston’s ‘ability to monumentalize the minutiae of mundane life’ and boldly declared that ‘as pictures, these seem to me to be perfect.’ To which New York Times art critic Hilton Kramer responded, ‘Perfect? Perfectly banal, perhaps. Perfectly boring, certainly.’ Regards sur un siècle de photographie à travers le livre, (152); The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century pp.234-5; The Photobook: A History Vol.II p.265; The Open Book pp.308-9; 802 photo books from the Auer collection p.598.

        THE BLUE HAMMER (Author's Proof Copy, Annotated)

      Alfred A . Knopf, New York 1976 - Octavo. Uncorrected proof copy in printed yellow wrappers. The author's own copy with more than 60 holograph corrections to the text, in pencil. Page references for all of these corrections are given in pencil on the front cover by Macdonald. Laid in are two pages of typed corrections (signed "B") to text with quirky little remarks to Macdonald prepared by fellow mystery writer, William Campbell Gault, who is the dedicatee of the book and here a proof reader. Gault refers to page 30, paragraph 279: "If you mean Jack Daniel's as a good Tennessee whisky, and that's the famous one, it is not a bourbon (have a letter from the vice-prez of Jack Daniel's explaining why). This is the only place you refer to it as a bourbon. (This is known as carping)." And the final two paragraphs by Gault: "And so it ends, very good book. Hard to proof read as I got too involved in the story. Very good book.And now, on the manufacturing end, this is a clever suggestion: You insist they put an energy cell in the spine of the book, energising (energizing?) both a small bulb and a miniature recording. As the reader turns to the dedication page, the light will illuminate the page (a pale blue light) and a dim and distant trumpet flare will sound as the reader views my name. Remember now, a trumpet flare -ta-Ra, ta-Ra. Be sure it is not taps." The present copy shows an excellent example of two exceptional writers collaborating on the final touches of a successful and popular novel. A fine copy housed in a custom leather backed clamshell box. NOTE: William Campbell Gault is author of Don't Cry For Me (Edgar Award winner), End of a Call Girl, Dead Hero and many others.

        Autograph musical manuscripts signed "G. Menotti" of two solo songs from the composer's cantata Landscapes and Remembrances. [Piano-vocal score]. Ca. 1976

      Landscapes and Remembrances, a cantata for soloists, chorus, and orchestra to texts by Menotti, was first performed at Uihlein Hall in Milwaukee on May 14, 1976, with Judith Blegen (soprano), Ani Yervanian (contralto), Vahan Khanzadian (tenor), Gary Kendall (baritone), and the Milwaukee Symphony and Bel Canto Chorus, James Keeley, conducting. "The nine-part Landscapes and Remembrances is a set of musical impressions drawn from the composer's life, ranging from his arrival in America as a teenager to his discovery of South Carolina, where he founded the Spoleto USA Festival in 1977... The structure of Landscapes consists of alternating choruses and orchestral songs, although several of the choral sections make use of solo voices as well. The titles in general reflect the geography of remembrance at the root of each... " "The Abandoned Mansion," the first song in Landscapes, is "a brooding piece in E-flat minor... infused with the past. Its constantly arcing melodic lines are supported by persistent tremolo figures that give way only briefly in the middle of the song to sustained chords--a section of quasi-recitative. The key to the song lies in these words: 'A visitor to the South is an intruder into the reigns of ghosts'." "Farewell at a Train Station in Vermont," the final song, is "concerned with love, but this time with the bitterness of parting. 'In everyone's life', Menotti has commented, 'there is a farewell never forgotten, the pain of which never heals', a sentiment he had previously expressed in his libretto for Barber's opera Vanessa. It is evident that this section of Landscapes is... rooted in actuality... Over a solemn adagio figure, the solo voice sets the stage for this short scena: 'The train is late. It rains as it must when lovers part forever. Without a word we pace the empty platform, measuring our protracted agony with uncharted steps'." John Ardoin: The Stages of Menotti, pp. 129-131. Menotti's autograph musical manuscripts are very rare to the market.. Folio (ca. 313 x 237 mm). Unbound. "The abandoned mansion (South Carolina) for contralto." 1f. (title), 5, [i] (blank) pp. "Farewell at a train station in Vermont (for tenor)." 8 pp. Notated in pencil on 12-stave printed music paper with "G Schirmer Royal Brand No. 54... " printed at lower margin. Small check mark in blue pencil to upper corner of each page of "The abandoned mansion." First measure of "Farewell" with a bass drum cue. Minor erasures throughout. Slightly worn; small rust stains from a paper clip to upper margin of outer pages, slightly affecting one letter of a tempo marking.

        Gesammelte Werke Band 1 / Collected Works Volume 1 (Inscribed) 2 Bilderbucher / 2 Picture Books (Inscribed Copy)

      Stuttgart, London and Reykjavik: Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1976. First edition. Spiral_bound. Very Good. Volume 1 of the collected artist books of Dieter Roth. Decorated clamshell cardboard box containing two distinct "children's books" and a separate one page sheet with title and printing information. From an edition of one thousand copies. The first book is entitled Kinderbuch and consists of 28 pp of color screenprints and die-cuts. Fine condition in plastic spiral binding. The second book, Bilderbuch, is 23 pp, housed in a two-ring binder and contains color acetate and white paper, die cut. A near fine copy. The box itself shows some heavy wear with splits at corners and some creases as if a weight was placed on it at some point. This copy benefits, however, from the fact that it has been INSCRIBED by Roth to fellow RISD artist/photographer Mary Kocol. The inscription is dated May 1986 in Providence which was the time and place of a Dieter Roth retrospective exhibit at The Rhode Island School of Design. Dieter spent a year at RISD in the mid-1960's as a visiting artist. Although he signed many books in his lifetime, books inscribed by Dieter are not common, and copies inscribed to fellow artists are even more desirable. Listed in Aaron's and Roth's In Numbers - Serial Publications by Artists Since 1955.

        Mosaik 1976 bis 1997 22 jahrgänge Abenteuer von Hannes Hegen

      Junge Welt Verlag Berlin 1976 - 1976,1997. je 20 seiten. Leineneinband ,Kunstleder. gebunden nur leichte gebrauchsspuren, ".die Digedags von Hannes Hegen waren von 1955 bis 1975 die Helden der Comiczeitschrift Mosaik, die in der DDR erschien. Dig, Dag und Digedag durchqueren Raum und Zeit und erleben aufregende Abenteuer etwa im Orient, in Amerika oder im Weltraum.Kennen Sie Ritter Runkel? Wer diese Frage nicht beantworten kann, ist mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit ein Altbundesrepublikaner. Ritter Runkel von Rübenstein, der von 1964 bis 1969 die Welt zwischen Venedig und dem Persischen Golf unsicher machte, ist nach den legendären Digedags die wohl bekannteste Figur aus dem Comic-Magazin MOSAIK von Hannes Hegen: Er stammt aus Franken und ist eine Mischung aus Dreistigkeit und Dummheit, dabei aber so liebenswert, dass er im Gedächtnis vieler Menschen der ehemaligen DDR voll verankert ist. In einer 1995 durchgeführten Umfrage kannten 90 Prozent der Ostdeutschen diesen Rittersmann von Schrot und Korn(Henry Böhm), dar- unter auch viele Personen, die das MOSAIK nie selbst gelesen hatten. Das erste MOSAIK von Hannes Hegen erschien am 23. Dezember 1955. Es war sozusagen ein Weihnachtsgeschenk an die jungen DDR- Comicfans, ein Trost für die fast unerreichbaren, begehrten West-Comics in dem gleichen Jahr, das die Spaltung der jeweils einseitig souverän gewordenen Deutschländer mit der Integration der beiden deutschen Staaten in die antagonistischen Blöcke auf unabsehbare Zeit zementiert hatte. So war das MOSAIK ein Kind des Kalten Krieges, das sich allerdings von den Agitationsformeln der ideologischen Konfrontation so weit wie möglich fern zu halten suchte, indem es seine Abenteuer in entlegene Jahrhunderte verlegte und dabei die Grenzen von Raum und Zeit sprengte. 1/1976 1 230 Das Geheimnis der Grotte Adria-Serie 2/1976 2 231 Die Türkenschlacht Adria-Serie 3/1976 3 232 Das Mühlenschiff Adria-Serie 4/1976 4 233 Die gestohlene Muskete Adria-Serie 5/1976 5 234 Der Kampf um den Wald Adria-Serie 6/1976 6 235 Besuch beim Pascha Adria-Serie 7/1976 7 236 Vom Geier geholt Adria-Serie 8/1976 8 237 Der Zaubertrank Adria-Serie 9/1976 9 238 Das Wettrennen Adria-Serie 10/1976 10 239 Feuer im Schiff Adria-Serie 11/1976 11 240 Der Nichtsnutz Adria-Serie 12/1976 12 241 Der fliegende Braten Adria-Serie 1/1977 13 242 Das Mädchen mit dem Hund Adria-Serie 2/1977 14 243 Die Nacht des Schreckens Adria-Serie 3/1977 15 244 Der Untergang des Kastells Adria-Serie 4/1977 16 245 Die große Wende Adria-Serie 5/1977 17 246 Piraten greifen an Adria-Serie 6/1977 18 247 Nach Venedig!
