        Imperial Earth

      Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, New York 1976 - First edition. Slight tape shadows on the front fly, near fine in fine dustwrapper. The tape shadows are from a laid-in (and formerly attached) printed card "With the compliments of the Author" Inscribed in the card by Arthur C. Clarke to his protege, one-time secretary, and longtime friend Ian Macauley; "Dear Ian -- believe it or not, I started writing this only three years after *Islands in the Sky*! All the best, Arthur." The card exhibits some small corresponding tape stains. Macauley was the dedicatee of Clarke's first published hardcover novel, *Islands in the Sky*, and was an award-winning *New York Times* journalist. He also edited Clarke's book of collected essays, *Greetings, Carbon-Based Bipeds!* (2000). Clarke wrote the last chapter of *Childhood End*, while visiting Macauley in Atlanta, where he was reportedly greatly influenced by their discussions. A nice association copy of this science-fiction novel. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Acts of King Arthur And His Noble Knights

      NY, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1976, first edition, wrappers. Softcover. Advance copy, an uncorrected proof, edited by Chase Horton, these tales are Steinbeck's attempt to render Malory "into modern English," the importance to Steinbeck and his literature of the Morte d'Arthur cannot be over-stated, as he writes in his introduction, "I think my sense of right and wrong...and any thought I may have had against the oppressor and for the oppressed, came from this book," this copy is especially important because it was one of two copies sent to novelist John Gardner, author of such novels as Grendel and The Resurrection, Gardner also wrote The Complete Works of the Gawain Poet, The Alliterative Morte Arthure, and other "olde English" books, this copy includes Gardner's pencil marks, underlining, and bracketting of sections as well as a list on the front cover of possible places of publication for blurbs and/or reviews, this was originally obtained from Susan Thornton who was Gardner's fiance at the time of his death, Morrow 284.

        The Art of Papermaking

      Kilmurry, Sixmilebridge, Co. Clare, Ireland: Ashling Press, 1976. Folio. From an edition of 355 copies signed by Ian V. O'Casey, the papermaker and publisher, this copy is in an original designer binding by Arthur Johnson of bright viridian morocco. Onlays of morocco in a rainbow of hues, from ivory and gold to deep indigo and black, emanate from a point and curl outwards, evoking flying sheets of paper. Curving lines tooled in white continue the sense of motion across the covers. On the lower board, a small swirl of multi-colored onlays continues the motif. Titled to spine with orange morocco inlaid letters. Signed with the binder's stamp and date inside the lower cover. Accompanied by the artist's maquette for the front cover and spine, hand-painted in gouache on heavy paper and numbered "3." Affixed to the margin of the page are swatches of teal and brown leather. Comparing the plan to the executed binding, one can see how Johnson added additional colors, flourishes, and complexity to the final version. A founding member of Designer Bookbinders, Johnson was known for his bold sense of color and design. This first English language edition of an important work on papermaking is illustrated throughout with plates printed on blue handmade paper, one folding. Some slight, possibly natural variation to the texture of the morocco on the front cover, else very fine. In a dark green cloth-covered box bearing a cloth strip to the spine with cut-out letters forming the title. T.e.g.

      The Museum of Modern Art & The MIT Press, New York & Cambridge, MA 1976 - 112pp, 48 color and 1 b&w illustration. Designed by Carl Laanes. With a biography. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. This innovatively designed catalogue was published in conjunction with the 1976 exhibition of William Eggleston's haunting photos of everyday life in the American South held at New York's Museum of Modern Art. Curated by John Szarkowski, it was the first one-man show extended by MoMA solely to a color photographer - confirming Eggleston's well-deserved place in the pantheon of post-war photographic artists, and passing the torch on to the medium's new generation of practitioners. It is a supremely beautiful document, and a piece of twentieth century photo history as well. A bright, fresh, most handsome copy of the first edition of this wonderful tome (cited on page 265 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 308-309 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", page 29 of "From Fair to Fine: 20th Century Photography Books That Matter", page 18 of "From Fair to Fine 3" and pages 234-235 of "The Book of 101 Books") in the gilt embossed, pebble-grained boards with the pastedown of the green tricycle on the front cover INSCRIBED "For ., William Eggleston 1997" in black ink on the title page.

        William Eggleston's Guide.

      Museum of Modern Art, New York 1976 - First edition of the photographer's most well known photobook. Small quarto. Original boards with mounted cover photographic print. In fine condition. Signed by William Eggleston on the title page. William Eggleston's Guide was the first color photographs exhibition presented at The Museum of Modern Art. The book and show inspired controversy when it forced the art world to deal with color photography. The art criticism this inspired was potent as it was a medium scarcely taken seriously at the time. Eggleston's Guide presented a sense of familial status, in the same vein of a family album, but it possessed an artistic slant that transcended the content of the vernacular domain.

        A River Runs Through It and Other Stories

      University of Chicago Press, Chicago 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.
