        Interview With The Vampire

      NY: Knopf. 1976. Her acclaimed first book, the first in the Vampire Lestat series, and one of the unlikeliest success stories of any publishing season. Modest hardcover sales of the book would not have led one to imagine the long-term popularity and success of Rice's later books in the Vampire Lestat series, nor did they predict the huge success this novel had in paperback, selling millions of copies; it has been estimated that Rice has sold more than a hundred million copies of her books over the years, and this title has gone through several successive collectible editions. Even so, Rice's novels did not begin to approach such sales again until her second vampire novel, which was published after two mainstream historical novels. Rice's vampire novels have been unprecedented bestsellers as well as being critically acclaimed, and even her erotic novels of sado-masochism have achieved a kind of mainstream success that defies prediction. This was the basis for a well-received movie in 1994, directed by Neil Jordan and starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise, among others. Rice abandoned the vampire genre in 2004, in a prominently announced return to her Roman Catholic faith. This is the scarcest of the books, particularly in nice condition, as the gold foil dust jacket is notoriously prone to wear. Fine in a fine dust jacket, and scarce thus. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Two Football Magazines With Early Sex Pistols Advertisements

      United Kingdom. 1976. Two programs. Octavos. Stapled pictorial wrappers. Near fine or better with only a bit of wear along the spine. Two English football programs from 1976, Manchester City F.C. Match Mag and Ipswich Town, that include two of the earliest examples of the Jamie Reid-designed Sex Pistol adverts (one full page and one half page) for the Pistol's infamous Anarchy in the U.K. tour. Both are dated December 4, 1976, just three days after the Pistol's first run-in with the press after famously cursing on a live evening broadcast of Thames Television's Today program. And like that appearance, these ads demonstrated the media savvy of both the Pistols and their manager, Malcolm McLaren, who knew that a concert audience of football hooligans was far more likely to generate press coverage. It is well-established that many of the early instigators of the punk scene were football fans (as evidenced by the influence of football zines on music zines and their occasional commingling). At the very least, the ads are prima facia evidence of McLaren's brilliant and unusual marketing of the tour that brought punk into the public eye. .

        Interview with the Vampire

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1976. First. First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper with a couple of minute scuffs to the easily-worn, gold-foil jacket. A lovely copy of the author's first book, and the first entry in her Vampire Chronicles. Basis for the Neil Jordan film with Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Antonio Banderas, Stephen Rea, Christian Slater, and 12 year-old Kirsten Dunst in her breakthrough role. A widely influential book, as seen by the cottage-industry of vampiric anti-heroes which generally follows the themes and characterizations created by Rice (vampire-angst, vampires who only bite bad guys, vampires who love puppies, etc.). .

        The Education of Little Tree

      (n.p.): Delacorte. (1976). The uncorrected proof copy of Carter's most famous book, which its publisher originally identified as "a true story" while it identified the author as a "part-blood Cherokee who is Storyteller in Council to the Cherokee Nations." A dozen years after its initial publication, The Education of Little Tree was chosen by independent booksellers as the book they most liked to sell and it became a word-of-mouth bestseller in a paperback edition published by the University of New Mexico Press. Later, Carter was discovered to be a white man from Alabama who had worked for right-wing politician George Wallace, writing racist propaganda. Carter may have written racist tracts for George Wallace, but in The Education of Little Tree he endorsed humanist values of a high order, which he ascribed to Native American traditions -- respect for the land and one's family, honoring one's elders, promoting generosity and good faith, abhorring hypocrisy and brutality. Even as fiction, The Education of Little Tree raises serious and difficult questions, but it has been taken by many as strongly promoting a healthy sensitivity to, and respect for, Native American traditions and perspectives. In some circles, the question of the book's authenticity is today less of an issue than that of its sentimentality. "Little Tree" handwritten on spine; paperclip imprint top edge of front cover; near fine in tall wrappers. Extremely scarce: this is the only copy of the proof we've ever seen, and it dates from an era when, first, proofs were less widely distributed than they later came to be and, second, they were less likely to be viewed as collectibles and filtered into the rare book market, and more likely to simply be discarded after use. First Edition. Softcover.

Reliure editeur cartonnée pleine toile . ******* Edition limitée à 625 exemplaires ******** Tome I, XCII-569 pages. Tome II, VIII-703 pages. Tome III, VII-629 pages. Tome IV, IV-731 pages. Tome V, VII-695 pages. Tome VI, VI-705 pages. Tome VlI, XV-765 pages. ****************** Le Shâh Nâmeh est sans doute l'oeuvre littéraire la plus connue en Iran , et constitue une base incontournable pour les récitants et les poètes encore de nos jours. Composé au 10ème siècle par Firdousi , le Shâh Nâmeh ( Le Livre des Rois ) est un poème épique persan de plusieurs milliers de vers ( plus de 60 000 distiques ), écrit dans un langage simple et clair. Il retrace l'histoire de l'Iran depuis la création du monde jusqu'à la conquête arabe : Firdousi y a mis en vers de nombreuses histoires persanes légendaires ou anecdotiques. Oeuvre à fort caractère patriotique , le Shâ Nâmeh est animé d'un vif sentiment national, de considérations morales et de morceaux lyriques. A l'époque où le Shâ Nâmeh a été écrit, la langue arabe prenait une importance considérable au niveau littéraire. Firdousi a contribué à la sauvegarde du persan en s'efforçant d'utiliser principalement des mots purement perses et non arabes. Il a ainsi sauvé la langue persane de l'oubli et ses textes servent toujours de référence linguistique. Gilbert Lazard divise le texte en trois grandes parties ( augmentées d'une introduction ), qui couvrent cinquante règnes. Gilbert Lazard divise le texte en trois grandes parties ( augmentées d'une introduction ), qui couvrent cinquante règnes. - L'introduction où Ferdowsi explique, entre autre, pourquoi et comment il a écrit ce texte. - L'histoire des "civilisateurs" est une partie relativement brève, qui comprend : La création du monde - La dynastie des Pishdadian ( qui enseignent aux hommes tous les arts ) - La chute de cette dynastie due au Mal, incarné par Zahhak , dont la tyrannie dure mille ans et finalement renversé par Faridun. A sa mort , le royaume est partagé entre ses trois fils, dont les deux plus âgés assassinent leur cadet, ce qui marque le début de la guerre entre Iran et Turan. - La partie "historique" , la plus longue, est composée de récits de batailles et d'anecdotes ponctués souvent par une morale , et raconte l'histoire des rois légendaires. Une grande partie est consacrée à la guerre entre Iran et Turan , et développe les cycles des grands héros. La religion Zoroastrienne prend une place plus visible que dans les autres passages. On peut y identifier plusieurs périodes : Les achéménides , qui sont assez peu développés. Darius et son fils Darius III, qui est vaincu par Iskandar - Le cycle d'Iskandar, c'est à dire Alexandre le Grand, est une reprise de l'Iskandar Nâmeh - Les rois Ashkanian, mentionnées rapidement, correspondent aux parthes Arsacides - La dynastie Sassanide, avec des récits de bataille , des anecdotes ponctuées par des morales et des discussions philosophiques- ****************** [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Stories & Illustrations by Harley

      [No place]: Charlatan Press. 1976. First. First edition. Introduction by Allen Ginsberg (misspelled on the cover as "Ginsburg"). Octavo. [26]pp. Papercovered boards with cloth spine and illustrated in full color. Very good or better with rubbing to the boards, light wear at the corners and a few tiny scrapes. Inscribed and Signed in a childish hand by author/illustrator Harley Flanagan, who at 12 became the drummer for the punk band, The Stimulators, and went on to found the seminal hardcore band, The Cro-Mags. Flanagan was just nine when this collection of his two self-illustrated stories was published by his mother, a hippie named Rosebud who had lived on a farm with Ginsberg and enlisted the poet to pen the introduction to this volume. An uncommon book in any state, we've never seen another copy with a contemporary inscription from Flanagan. Certainly one of the more unusual items from Ginsberg's career and a curious piece of punk history. Morgan B123 .
