      New York, 1976. unbound. 2 sheets, (61 lines), on New Yorker letterhead, Jan. 11, 1976. Vintage Perelman humor - "...It is indeed true that I've been down Shaft No. 7 of the Lost Dutchman Mine trying to scratch up some iron pyrites that I can persuade Travel & Leisure to accept as gold....Sorry we didn't have a chance to talk the other that gaggle of celebs. The spectacle of George Grizzard fencing up and down those stairs was as depressing as anything the theater has offered in years-- I'm sure that both George Kaufman and Freddie March revolved in their graves." He talks about his last trip around the world, and his upcoming plans to go to Santa Barbara as a Regents lecturer, "meeting with students (preferably female and topics like yentzing)". He goes on - "this note would be incomplete without telling you who the first person was that kissed me when the clock struck midnight at Woody Allen's New Years party: Clive Barnes. Yes, it's the God's truth.......

On a déjà du conter cette histoire; le futur artiste-éditeur oisif se la coulait douce (hormis de 9 à 21 heures dans une école de langues - mais pas tous les jours) au Japon et dans un volume de poèmes de Prévert avait croqué quelques vagues dessins en marge de "La Pêche"; son maître de stage, Minoru Yokota, éditeur de Soguène dans son atelier haut perché, lui tint à peu près ce language:? Et si vous en faisiez un livre, honorable disciple ?L'artisan genevois ayant la bougeotte, il voguera ultérieurement sous le label des éditions nomades.La version japoniaise et la postfarce sont de Fuminari Hirata.Notre exemplaire est enrichi de 11 cuivres originaux, d'un cliché de titre & d'une signature au pinceau que ne mentionne pas le collophon, comme il passe sous silence celles figurant sous les 14 compositions gravées à l'eau-forte de ce petit bijou initial d'une rare fraîcheur, jamais égalée dans la production future de Thierry Bourquin, hormis peut-être pour "Le Pélican" de Desnos, c'est l'enfant qui subsiste en lui sans doute qui en tire le meilleur.

        Chronicles of Bustos Domecq [Signed]

      New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., 1976. First edition. A Very Good copy of the first US edition, first printing (tiny nick to top edge of the front board, modest wear to spine ends, slight fading to board extremities), in a Very Good + dust jacket (slight edge wear, tiny chip at each corner of the spine head, age toning to flap and verso extremities, prior seller's pencil notes to front free endpaper and half-title), SIGNED BY JORGE LUIS BORGES on the half title accompanied by two perpendicular lines. The book presents itself as a series of critical essays by the title character whose name is a joint pseudonym of Borges and Bioy-Casares. Borges wrote numerous literary forgeries, including reviews of the nonexistent writings of others. Borges and Bioy-Casares wrote several collaborative works using the name H. Bustos Domecq (Honorio Bustos Domecq) and Bustos Domecq is presented as the author of "Chronicles of Bustos Domecq" even though the real authors are named on the book's dust jacket and cover. The two men, writing together, produced a different voice than either man produced writing alone. Although he was considered by many to be one of the Twentieth Century's greatest authors, Borges never won the Nobel Prize in Literature for his work, a fact which continually distressed him. As he stated: "Not granting me the Nobel Prize has become a Scandinavian tradition; since I was born they have not been granting it to me." Signed copies of the book offered here are quite scarce to the market. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY JOSE LUIS BORGES. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

        Original painting of Corto Maltese

      1976. Non-Book. Ink, watercolor and pastels on a roughly cut sheet of parchment paper. Comes with a letter by a former director of Lucca Comics, in which he explains that the piece was painted by Pratt during a dinner in 1976. The work measures approximately 21 x 29 cm. The paper, which was not ideal for watercolors, is creased and the lines and colors appear much thicker than Pratt's usual hand. The director mentions that Pratt reluctantly obliged because he did not think the paper was right but that, in the end, he considered the result to be innovative. .

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.

        Taxi Driver Typescript

      [NY]: [Bantam]. [1976]. Partial typescript for Elman's novelization of the Paul Schrader screenplay for the classic Martin Scorcese film, ranked 52nd on the American Film Institute's top films of all time. Approximately 75 typescript pages total, about evenly split between multiple reworkings of the first eight pages and the final 13 pages, with five drafts of the first page alone. Approximately nine pages from the middle of the book. Most pages are ribbon-copy; some are carbon typescript; only 13 pages are photocopy. The majority of the pages bear extensive holograph corrections in Elman's hand, showing a labored, almost pained attempt to do justice to the Schrader screenplay, a copy of which is also included, with an additional 19 revision pages of its own. Accompanied by a typed letter signed by Paul Schrader to Elman (although apparently after the fact as it is written on "American Gigolo" stationery and dated 1980), transmitting a copy of the 1974 script and saying that he "subsequently did more work on the script, but this is a fair representation of what was intended." Also included is a cassette tape labeled "Taxi 2," on which Elman dictates portions of his novelization. Elman's pages are in a variety of conditions: some are wrinkled and edgeworn; some are on acidifying paper; some are fine. The screenplay is near fine; the revisions are heavily coffee-stained but entirely legible. Elman studied writing at Stanford with Yvor Winters and wrote a number of novels, several books of nonfiction and reportage, and published four poetry collections. His novelization of Taxi Driver, one of the greatest films of the last century, was clearly a more literary undertaking than most such novelizations are. Also included, for reasons unknown to us, is one page of lyrics of an Australian folk song. A unique archive pertaining to a great film. . First Edition.

        Carrie [Original Screenplay]

      Los Angeles: United Artists, Undated.. First edition.. Original Movie Script.. First draft screenplay. An original first draft screenplay written by Larry Cohen and Paul Monash. Noted on the title page as "First Draft." ~Released by United Artists in 1976, "Carrie" was written by Lawrence D. Cohen, based on the the 1974 novel of the same name by Stephen King, directed by Brian De Palma, produced by Brian De Palma and Paul Monash, and starred Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, Amy Irving, John Travolta and P.J. Soles. ~The script is bound with metal fasteners in a blue, heavy stock folder binder with the film's title showing through a die-cut window in the front cover. ~Pages numbered [1]-141 are white photostat copies of an original that had some handwritten notes in several places. The title page is undated, but displays the film's title, writers, production company, and that it is a "First Draft" screenplay adapted from the novel by Steven King [sic] . The title page is also stamped with the logo of the legendary agency founded by Evarts Ziegler and Hal Ross, the Ziegler-Ross Agency. The screenplay exhibits only minor wear from light handling and use and is otherwise clean and readable. ~The first of many film's to be based on the written work of Stephen King, "Carrie" went on to receive two Oscar nominations for the superb work of Spacek and Laurie. The film remains one of the most popular and critically acclaimed horror films of that decade, and an early example of the direction legendary director De Palma would trailblaze. ~An excellent piece of horror film history, extremely scarce in any form, and highly desirable and collectible.
