        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.

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 .

        The Selfish Gene.

      Oxford University, New York 1976 - First American editon of the author's classic work. Signed by Richard Dawkins on the title page. Octavo, original black cloth. Near fine in an excellent near fine dust jacket showing only light wear to the spine tips. A very sharp copy. The Selfish Gene was extremely popular when first published by Oxford University Press in 1976. It created "a silent and almost immediate revolution in biology" (Grafen and Ridley, 2009), and it has sold over a million copies and has been translated into more than 25 languages. " Best said by the New York Review of Books, it "was a smash hit.Best of all, Dawkins laid out this biology-some of it truly subtle-in stunningly lucid prose." In 1976, Arthur Cain, one of Dawkins's tutors at Oxford in the 1960s, called it a "young man's book." Dawkins received the compliment well and explained that it was allusion to A.J. Ayer's Language, Truth, and Logic (Dawkins, 2006). "This important book could hardly be more exciting," said The Economist, and "[t]he presentations are remarkable for their clarity and simplicity, intelligible to any schoolchild, yet so little condescending as to be a pleasure to the professional" (American Scientist).

He spent the better part of the 1960s outside the studio, photographing the Civil Rights and Anti-War movements. Leaving "Harper's Bazaar" for "Vogue" in 1966, Avedon has organized several celebrated and controversial exhibitions of his work, including "Avedon: Photographs 1947-1977" and "In the American West," receiving a national award for visual excellence in 1976.

Nr. 97/160 Ex. Von E. Jaeckle im Impressum signiert. Die Holzschnitte auf Japan-Papier «Ginwashi». Oskar Dalvit (1911 - 1975), Maler, Grafiker und Buchillustrator. 1953-1965 Lehrer an der Volkshochschule. Tätig in Zürich und Amden. Nach einer Ausbildung zum Schriftenmaler und Grafiker bei Orell Füssli in Zürich entschloss sich Oskar Dalvit 1936 für die freischaffende Tätigkeit als Maler. Über die Vermittlung von Maria Marc (Witwe von Franz Marc) lernte er den Kunsthändler Karl Nierendorf kennen, der sein Werk 1947 unter Vertrag nahm. Eine Ausstellung in New York war bereits in Vorbereitung, als der Kunsthändler an einem Herzversagen starb. Dank der Vermittlung Nierendorfs öffneten sich Dalvit in den 50er Jahren viele Galerien und Museen. 1951 vertrat er die Schweiz an der Bienal de São Paulo, Brasilien. Durch die Freundschaft mit dem deutschen Maler Fritz Winter wurde er mit der Gruppe Zen 49 bekannt, deren Mitglieder wie Dalvit in der Münchner Galerie Otto Stangl ausstellten. Ab den 40er Jahren arbeitete er während der Sommermonate auch in Amden, wo bereits Otto Meyer-Amden ? Dalvits wichtigstes Vorbild ? entscheidende Schaffensjahre verbracht hatte. 1975 starb Dalvit unerwartet an einem Herzversagen. Werkwürdigung:Nach einem gezeichneten Frühwerk, in dem er Einflüsse Hans von Marées' und Otto Meyer-Amdens verarbeitet hatte, stellte sich Dalvit mit diesen Ölgemälden, die in starken, pastos aufgetragenen Farben gehalten sind, als Expressionist vor. Ernst Ludwig Kirchners in der Schweiz entstandenes Werk diente ihm als Anregung. Über die Beschäftigung mit Paul Klee und Wassily Kandinsky fand Dalvit dann in den 40er Jahren zu einer ungegenständlichen Gestaltungsweise. Der Weg zur Abstraktion bedeutete für ihn einen Prozess der Verinnerlichung. Die Qualität der Werke sollte ähnlich wie bei den Vertretern der lyrischen Abstraktion Jean Bazaine oder Alfred Manessier in ihrer «Gestimmtheit», ihrem atmosphärischen Wert liegen und damit gleichsam ein Äquivalent zur Musik bilden. So sehr Dalvit seine Bilder aus der Farbe konstituierte, so sehr spielte auch das grafische Moment in seinem Werk eine Rolle. In den 50er Jahren wurden seine druckgrafischen Blätter bekannt, ja geradezu populär. Sie haben Dalvits Namen mehr geschadet als genützt, lenkten sie doch in ihrer oft etwas gefälligen Wirkung vom tiefen Gehalt anderer Werke ab, in denen Dalvit versuchte, philosophische, soziale und religiöse Momente ins sinnlich Wahrnehmbare zu übersetzen.

        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

      West Point New York:: USMA,. 1976.. Staple-Bound. Very Good. 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.
