        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.

      University of Chicago, Chicago 1976 - One of the most sought-after titles in recent American fiction, 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 a retiring professor, 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 Craig Sheffer, Brad Pitt, Tom Skerritt and Emily Lloyd. First issue points: typo page 27 and mismatched ISBN numbers. Slight foxing on top edge, else fine in a price-clipped, else fine dust jacket with very subtle spine fade. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

        Report to the Secretary of the Army By the Special Commission on the United States Military Academy, regarding the Honor Code (with) Extensive Annotations By Col. "Red" Reeder, Letters and Notes.

      USMA,, West Point New York: 1976 - A scathing and pithy commentary (also known as The Borman Report) on the state of affairs at West Point by Colonel Russell Potter "Red" Reeder, Jr. (1902 - 1998) United States Army officer, a highly decorated veteran of WWII and author - here reviews and comments on the Commission's investigation of the West Point system of Honor and its Code - nearly every page with his insertions, commentary and suggestions - at this time, the Point under scrutiny for reported abuses and scandals involving the cadets; Col. Reeder, for 20 years the respected Athletic Director of the USMA was concerned with and influential regarding changes needed in the Honor Code; this after several cheating incidents and 'scandals' concerning the cadets and incompetence on the part of the staff at the Point were publicly revealed; 91 pages, with handwritten marginal notations, underlining for emphasis in red and blue and references to other internal notes and incidents by him; Col. Reeder cites specific instances where the code and its application had been either abused or misinterpreted by less-than-caring Point administration, often resulting in unfair, foolishly judged and downright poor treatment of cadets; Throughout, Col. Reeder's approach is one of humanity and good sense and is especially potent, given that his entire life was spent within the U.S. Army under one aspect or another and his years of experience with the men and boys under his command gave him insight that would be difficult to surpass; At front is stapled-in a note on Reeder's letterhead, stating ".There will be moans abt. this report. Some at USMA think nothing is wrong. But in 30 years there have been two cadet honor dismissals, involving abt. 100 cadets each, plus one "Scandal" that was swept under the rug. USMA should expect some outside changes because they were not cleaning up internally."; laid-in are a carbon of a typed letter signed from Reeder to Col. Frank Borman, on the Special Commission, wherein Reeder tells of meeting with General of the Army Eisenhower who specifically had asked Col. Reeder about the cadet's adherence and loyalty to the Code and his concerns, Reeder noting that now more than ever is there need for paying attention to the good structure of the Academy since enrollment was nearly 4 times the size as when Eisenhower was a cadet; with a note to Col. William J. Taylor Jr. regarding the report and Taylor's grateful reply after reading it and Reeder's comments and recommendations; evidently, Reeder had sent the annotated report to several respected colleagues as well as the commission, since there are notes that Lt.Col. Dale Hruby as well as Brig. Gen. Harvey Fraser had been in communication, list in reviewing this document (their names both on the front cover as being forwarded the report); side-stapled; some edge tips wear, soiling to cover sheet and back cover, which is coming loose from the stapling; laid-in materials with light wear and contained in the original manila envelope titled in Reeder's hand (worn with tears); overall, in very good condition; a very interesting annotated report and group of correspondence, a unique archive of material concerning the USMA at West Point during a particularly troublesome time of upheaval and self- examination, especially as coming from the knowledgeable pen of the prominent Col. Reeder. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [Original Anarchy in the UK Tour Flyer]

      Manchester: Electric Circus, [1976]. First Edition. Fine. A4 broadside printed recto only. Fine condition. Reid-designed flyer from the Pistols infamous 1976 “Anarchy in the UK” tour. Used for both national advertising as well as local promotion, this example is from the Dec. 9th Electric Circus show, one of only a handful of tour dates *not* cancelled. Performing with the Pistols were the Heartbreakers, Clash, and Buzzcocks - who only just joined the bill after The Damned were given the boot. A legendary show: Morrissey, Bernard Sumner, and Peter Hook were all in attendance (though the future Smiths singer left early to catch a NY Dolls show). Given the tours’ notoriety, one of the more common Pistols flyers out there, but rare in this condition.
