      Leo Wyatt, [Newcastle on Tyne 1976 - Rare Copper and Wood Engravings by Leo Wyatt Leo Wyatt's profession was that of designing and engraving steel dies and copper plates. In his late fifties, challenged by the assertion that famed English wood engraver Reynolds Stone was seemingly "the sole practitioner of the Chancery Cursive letter in engraved form today" he began to engrave lettterheads and bookplates on wood utilizing this classic letter form. He also created separate alphabets and engraved quotations, bringing samples with him on two trips to America, in 1977 and 1978 where he found a new popularity and market for his work, although suites of his engravings, such as those offered here, remain extremely rare. He died in 1981. One copperplate faintly toned, otherwise all very fine condition Each engraving is one of 75 copies, signed and dated by the artist in the lower margin. 1 vols. The images, of various sizes, average 8-1/2 x 6-1/2 inches, plus generous margins [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Produzioni Europee Associati (PEA), Rome 1976 - Vintage oversize double weight photograph of Donald Sutherland and Cicely Browne getting it on in high style in the 1976 film.Cattarinich did still photography work for many interesting and prominent directors in the 1970s and 1980s, including Pedro Almodovar, Joe D'Amato, Marco Ferreri, and Pier Paolo Pasolini, among others.Producer Dino De Laurentiis saw Robert Redford in the role of Casanova but Fellini refused to cast him. When De Laurentiis bowed out of the project and Fellini signed a new contract with producer Alberto Grimaldi, Sutherland was cast in the role, requiring that he shave his head and wear both prosthetic nose and chin.Fellini had to re-shoot parts of this movie, including the elaborate Venice carnival scene, when approximately seventy reels of film-including the first three weeks of shooting-were stolen at the Technicolor labs of Tiburtino, Rome, on August 27, 1975. Also stolen were portions of Pasolini's "Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom" and Damiano Damiani's spaghetti Western, "A Genius, Two Partners, and a Dupe."11.5 x 7.75 inches. Fine.

      Chicago: University of Chicago. 1976. Two long interrelated stories of a family for whom "there was no clear line between religion and fly-fishing." Published by the university press as a favor to Maclean as he retired, the book became a surprise success, first gaining readership through word of mouth recommendations and eventually necessitating many later printings, illustrated and gift editions. Basis for the Robert Redford film featuring Brad Pitt, Craig Sheffer, Tom Skerritt and Emily Lloyd. This copy is inscribed by Maclean in Billings [Montana], in April of 1977: "Bill/ Good luck and try a Bailey Gray Wulf [sic]/ Norman Maclean." The Gray Wulff is a Lee Wulff designed dry fly first marketed by his friend Dan Bailey. Dan's son John took over the running of Dan Bailey's Fly Shop in Livingston, Montana and was a consultant to Redford on the film. A few small spots to the top edge, else a fine copy in a near fine, spine and edge sunned dust jacket with slight rubbing at the extremities.

One of the best inscriptions we've seen in this title. Recommended for the Pulitzer Prize in 1977, but no award was given. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Pleasure Beach: A Book of Photography

      New York: Eclipse, 1976. Fine in an almost fine jacket. Because if its size, true collector's copies are uncommon.. First Edition. Large oblong quarto. Underrated artist book by a photographer who worked more often in commercial jobs than a fine art context. Published same year as Eggleston's Guide, this technically innovative book uses an unusual color palette set on deep blacks that prefigures the graphic digital futurism of the 1980s. Labrot's experiments conjures images not unlike the photography of Lucas Samaras. The image and color laying processes anticipates the techniques and style of computer generated digital graphics.

        THE BICENTENNIAL MAN / ORIGINAL CARBON TYPESCRIPT / Manuscript

      N. p. 1976 - THE BICENTENNIAL MAN / ORIGINAL CARBON TYPESCRIPT being 50 pages, approximately 15,000 words, fine in custom tray-case. Accompanied by a 200 word plus TYPED LETTER SIGNED by Asimov dated July 12th, 1974 to his long time friend and fellow science fiction personage, Forrie Ackerman, mentioning that he cannot promise a science fiction story to a deadline, but since the proposed anthology title is to be THE BICENTENNIAL MAN, there were 4 previously published items in The Saturday Evening Post that might be possibly utilized revolving around Benjamin Franklin which could be had for a small royalty. Along with copies of three other letters to Ackerman which yield yet more information regarding the specifics of this eventual typescript. (Which goes like this: Sometime in 1974, a woman by the name of Naomi Gordon approached Forrest Ackerman with an idea for a science fiction anthology for the upcoming Bicentennial of the U.S. Projected writers for this undertaking were to be Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, Fred Pohl, Ursula Le Guin, Robert Heinlein, Philip Jose Farmer, Larry Niven, A. E. Van Vogt, Jack Williamson and of course Isaac Asimov. While this project never fully materialized with some authors agreeing to the project and others not and some producing an actual typescript and again others not, Isaac obviously opted in thereby producing this novella. When the anthology finally and officially became a lost cause, the story was then immediately published when submitted elsewhere and went on to win not only the prestigious NEBULA award, but the highly coveted HUGO award as well). Asimov's typescripts are very rarely offered on the open market (or the private market for that matter with most, if not all of them, going to the Boston University Library) and the opportunity to purchase the second of only three of his fictional works to win a HUGO award (the final being another short story entitled GOLD, published much later in 1991, which was written on a computer and thus never a true and proper typescript) and the second to win the NEBULA award, not too mention a "ROBOT STORY" to boot and the source work for the film of the same name with Robin Williams in the lead, should prove a temptation most difficult to ignore. (First option of refusal to purchase the rest of the THE BICENTENNIAL MAN file consisting of all remaining authorial typescripts and correspondence will be tendered to the purchaser of this item.)

        Stories & Illustrations by Harley

      n/p: Charlatan Press, 1976. First Printing. Hardcover. Fine. Among the rarest & most unusual collectors' items related to Allen Ginsberg, primary poet of the Beat Generation. Harley Flanagan, a nine-year-old boy living on the lower east side of NYC with his hippie mother known as "Rosebud," drew & described his impressions of their travels to Morocco in "The Shopkeeper and his Donkey," & an imaginative time-travel story in "The Sabre Tooth Tiger." These two works comprise this slim hardbound volume in thick illustrated boards. Ginsberg knew Harley & his mother, they had lived on a farm together (presumably his East Hill Farm in Cherry Valley, NY), & wrote a brief introduction in his characteristic prose-poetry dated May 6, 1976 on the first page. Below the introduction is a facsimile of Ginsberg's signature. Flanagan grew up to become a founding member of the post-punk hardcore band The Cro Mags. "His sense of perspective is vast/His choise (sic) of details.../is bold and smart- I'm proud to know/he is a member of the Sensitive Family."(from Ginsberg's introduction) One of the scarcest Ginsberg-related items. In fine condition with only slight rubbing of front & back boards, interior very fine.
