        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." Source: Ira Cohen: The Great Rice Paper Adventure in Kathmandu: 1972-1977 (New Observations, New York City, Issue 106, May/June 1995. Guest Editor: Valery Oisteanu). WITH: Cohen, Ira.

        PUNK MAGAZINE A Complete run of all 15 issues in addition to the High Times Magazine supplement and the rare D O A Film Book

      New York: Punk Publications Inc. 1976 - 1981. An excellent complete set of the original issues, including the two supplement volumes of this highly influential magazine. Although numbered 1 to 17 only 15 issues were produced (numbers 9 and 13 never made it to print). 17 volumes in total. Condition is very good or better throughout, and each issue is SIGNED by its creator John Holmstrom. Rather than focus on news and current events like the remaining Sixties underground papers, Punk covered the culture of rock and roll, and did so with a swaggering, take-no-prisoners attitude. It was intentionally shocking, the way rock and roll had once been, back when DJs smashed records on the air and Senate subcommittees linked comic books and rock and roll to juvenile delinquency. Holmstrom wanted to bring back that connection and run with it- not just the shocking energy, but the coupling of rock and roll with comics, two art forms that had grown up side by side. "There was this great music coming out of CBGBs," he says, "and I could tell rock and roll was headed in a certain way. I wanted to bring out a magazine that was sort of a combination of the Sixties underground papers and a comic book. We wanted to be the Mad magazine of rock and roll." Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

        A River Runs Through It and Other Stories

      Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1976 Chicago; University of Chicago Press, 1976. First Edition (and first printing), with all first printing points, including incorrect ISBN on copyright page and "adways" (for "always") on page 27. Octavo, xiv+217 pp. Light blue cloth with silver spine lettering, light blue pictorial jacket. Contrary to other reports of the first print run being limited to only 1155 or 1577 copies, there were, in fact, 5,000 copies of the first printing of Maclean's serendipitous masterpiece, 3,000 in one run and 2,000 more after those were sold, with no discovered differences at this time between those runs. Near fine book, fine but for a previous owner's presentation inscription (dated in 1976, the year of publication, and an inscription I rather like, being from kids Rose and Paul to Daddy - of course having no idea at that time what they were giving him)). Jacket is better than Very Good plus, close to near fine, with a bit of spine fade, touched corners and one small closed tear, and is NOT price-clipped. Maclean's masterpiece, certainly from the soul, and almost meta-Taoist in its ability to convey the unspoken through words. "Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs........ I am haunted by waters. " A testament that the best poetry is native and unconscious, and couched in specific experience. Translated to the screen in a better-than-reasonable arrangement by Robert Redford, in one of his more successful attempts at deep sensitivity, with Tom Skerritt, Craig Sheffer, and Brad Pitt. L18

        Originalfarbzeichnungen zu "Color Lines" Blätter aus dem Skizzenbuch, 1976/77. - Leaves from the sketchbook, 1976/77.

      Basel, 1976-1977.. 24 Blatt Farbfilzstiftzeichnungen. In losen Blättern.. Die Originalvorlagenblätter zur gleichnamigen, 1978 bei Pablo Stähli in Zürich erschienenen Publikation. Karl Gerstner (*1930) zählt zu den wichtigsten Vertretern der Konkreten Kunst der Gegenwart und ist gleichzeitig einer der wichtigsten lebenden Typographen und Gestalter. "Gerstner ist ein Bewunderer der muslimischen Kunst. Vor allem von den geometrischen Ornamenten: konkrete Kunst vor der Konkreten Kunst von spiritueller Dichte. Etwas Eigenes aus der Inspiration zu entwickeln war nicht einfach: aus dem Konzept der Ornamente in sich geschlossene Bilder zu machen. Die muslimischen Linien wurden flächenfüllend, aber nicht flächig. Sie bestehen aus Stäben, die im Profil dreieckig sind, wodurch eine plastische Wirkung entsteht. Vor allem die Verwendung der Farbe hat nichts mehr mit den Vorbildern zu tun. Sie ist typisch Gerstnerisch." (Gerstner auf seiner Homepage zu der Folge der Color-Lines Bilder). - Auf Milimeterpapier gezeichnete Entwürfe, von denen einige grossformatig als Einzelbilder existieren. Jedes der 24 Blatt mit einer Folge von 5-8 Entwürfen, total 168, alle 6x6 cm.

        The Father Christmas Letters & BONUS ITEM: JRR Tolkiens Last Will & Testament

      George, Allen & Unwin, London 1976 - The Father Christmas Letters is a collection of letters written and illustrated by J. R. R. Tolkien between 1920 and 1942 for his children, from "Father Christmas". They tell of the adventures and misadventures of Father Christmas and his helpers, including the North Polar Bear and his two sidekick cubs, Paksu and Valkotukka. - J.R.R. Tolkien was best known for his epic fantasy "Lord of the Rings" and his studies in myth and language. But Tolkien was also the proud dad of four kids - and he didn't just read "Hobbit" to them at bedtime. Over the course of many years, he wrote and illustrated detailed, whimsical letters from Father Christmas, populated with a clumsy polar bear, elves and goblins. In these letters, Father Christmas kept the Tolkien children updated with stories about the hijinks at the North Pole - the slapsticky North Polar Bear and all the things he broke, firework explosions, the discovery of ancient caves full of old cave drawings, and battles with the goblins. (When Father Christmas couldn't write, his Elvish secretary filled in) - Tolkien's old-school style of writing is a bit formal and very correct, but he tosses in comments of exasperation, amusement, and in the last letter, a sort of sad resignation that children will grow up. Maybe it is because they were given to real children, not intended for publication, that the letters are only a little cutesy, and never cloying. And of course, Tolkien's detailed, colorful, fantastical, intricate pictures are what make the letters come alive; you can imagine the Tolkien kids eagerly examining the pictures as well as the written words. They aren't terribly realistic - Father Christmas never looks quite real - but their detailed fantastical charm makes up for it, such as the murals on Father Christmas's walls, with suns, moons, stars and trees. Tolkien also sprinkles the stories with things that his kids were probably intrigued by, like prehistoric cave paintings, fireworks, and a comic bear who causes all kinds of mayhem. And fans of Tolkien's fantasy works will probably enjoy checking out things like the invented Elf language (as written by the secretary Ilbereth) and goblin language. Tolkien includes a letter from the North Polar Bear in the latter language. "Letters From Father Christmas" won't exactly make you believe in Santa Claus again, but it is one of the prettiest and most charming Christmas picture books out there. Definitely recommended - and not just for Tolkien fans too. Light foxing throughout, otherwise a very good overall condition. - PLUS A BONUS ITEM: Photocopy of J.R.R. Tolkiens Last Will & Testament [he was worth a small fortune!], which consists of 6 pages and it bears the signature of Tolkien several times. - POSTAGE OPTIONS: Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. - Thanks for your interest and I hope you like the book enough to buy it. - Regards from Arabella.
