        William Eggleston's Guide

      New York: Museum of Modern Art, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. Near fine in boards; no jacket, as issued. Very slight edgewear, some slight but noticable rubbing and light scratching to the photographic inlay on the front board. This copy signed by the photographer on the title page. It seems like overkill to note that this title is in every major photography book survey--- i.e., Roth, Parr, Open Book. A bright, solid copy of a seminal title, one of the most important photography books ever published, and made all the better by the great man's signature.

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.

        A River Runs Through It

      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. A very nice copy with a nice inscription, referencing fly fishing and done in his home state at a time when the book was still little known (the recipient purchased his copy from the local Walden Books shortly before Maclean was to give a talk at Eastern Montana College in Billings, and it was still in the first printing). 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.

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.

        SNIFFIN GLUE. Volumes 1 through to 12. Together with issue 5.5 (Sniffin Snow)

      London: Mark Perry. 1976-1977. First Editions. Quartos. Mimeograph stapled magazines. Thirteen volumes. Original issues of numbers one to twelve and the half issue Sniffin Snow.

NME acclaimed "Sniffin' Glue" as "the nastiest, healthiest and funniest piece of press in the history of rock'n'roll habits" and it became the true chronicle of the early days of British punk rock as well as pioneering the DIY punk ethic. Fearing absorption into the mainstream music press, Perry ceased publication in 1977 with issue 12. The early and half issues are rare.

        Collection of 5 volumes (including Bardo Matrix Press, Kathmandu, Nepal)

      Kathmandu, Nepal and New York: Bardo Matrix [et al.], 1976-2000. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. NEAR FINE. Together 5 volumes, original bindings (see below) Fascinating collection of five volumes of Ira Cohen poetry materials, none of which are represented in the obvious American libraries. Cohen (1935-2011) was an American author, artist, filmmaker and photographer of some merit. One of the volumes is from Cohen's Bardo Matrix press (Kathmandu, Nepal), printed on fine Tibetan paper -- a rather unusual imprint. The press release for the 2014 Grolier Club exhibition of BARDO MATRIX materials: "The Bardo Matrix Press was founded in Kathmandu in the early 1970s by original Velvet Underground drummer, artist and poet Angus MacLise and poet, photographer and publisher Ira Cohen as a publishing outgrowth of the Colorado artists?' collective of the same name. [Angus] MacLise and Cohen commenced issuing pamphlets, booklets, posters, books, and broadsides by not only themselves and their fellow travelers, but also by some of the most important names of post-war literature: Paul Bowles, Gregory Corso, Diane Di Prima, and Charles Henri Ford were among the chosen." CONTENTS OF THE COLLECTION: Cohen, Ira. Poems from the Cosmic Crypt. Drawings by Petra Vogt. Kathmandu, Nepal: Kali Press / Bardo Matrix, 1976. Printed in Nepal on off-white rice paper. Letterpress in black, with purple and silver woodblocks and black and white drawing plates tipped-in. Original black cloth, stitch bound. AS NEW. Laid in: Unrecorded broadside ("On Dreamers!") printed on rice paper (likewise from the Bardo Matrix Press?). Ira Cohen's highly interesting private press (located in Kathmandu, Nepal) which issued the work of modernist poets in very limited numbers, e.g. Charles Henri Ford, Gregory Corso, Angus MacLise, Ira Cohen, and others. Edition limited to 500 copies (this one unnumbered). 9.75 x 7". Unpaginated. "Poems from the Cosmic Crypt, published in collaboration with Ian Alsop's Kali Press, utilized a laid paper made in India which allowed for printing both sides of a page in a hard covered book of some ninety pages. The book also contained a group of white on black drawings made by Petra Vogt. Some poems were printed in the poet's own handwriting from woodblocks cut by Tibetans who did not even know the English alphabet."
