        [Original Handbill Advertising the Sex Pistols at the 100 Club, Oxford Street, London, June 29 and July 6, 1976]

      (London): np, [1976] (London): np, [1976]. First Edition. Very Good. Handbill. 8 1/4" x 11 3/4". Printed recto only. Very good with some flattened creases and a 1/3” edge tear on the bottom. Artwork by Jamie Reid, featuring a repeated image of Rotten/Lydon snarling into a mic. Beginning in 1976, The Sex Pistols' took up Tuesday night residency at the 100 Club (a venue better known until then for jazz), gigs that would be pivotal for the band. As Jon Savage has written in his definitive ENGLAND'S DREAMING: "In the intimate setting of the 100 Club, the group could relax enough to take risks with their material and their performances. There they began to master their equipment, using the acoustics of the small club to experiment with overload, feedback and distortion. Electric amplification had provided much of the excitement of early Rock'n'Roll: pushing their equipment to the limit [...] the Sex Pistols twisted their limited repertoire into a noise as futuristic as their rhetoric" (177). The club also served as location for the famed 100 Club Punk Special, a two-day festival featuring the Pistols, The Damned, The Buzzcocks, The Clash, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and other unsigned acts, an event that was instrumental in bringing punk to the mainstream. It was also at the 100 Club pogoing was first invented, a development often attributed to Sid Vicious, but more likely simply fans' practical response to poor visibility in the tight confines of the club. Describing the June 29th date (of which bootlegs exist), Savage writes: "[B]ut the 100 Club take is something else. Here the Pistols are wound up to a pitch of impossible tautness: they swoop and drive through their fifteen songs (more than half of all they would ever play in their brief life)." This performance also almost certainly marked the first public performance of "Flowers of Romance." In addition, the July 6 date is significant the first “real” show by The Damned, who opened. Together, two landmark performances for the group that defined British punk rock. While Reid's more commercial work for the Pistols appears with some regularity, early and ephemeral promotional items like this are decidedly more scarce. And after Reid's iconic "God Save the Queen" flyer, arguably the defining Sex Pistols handbill, perfectly combining the raw energy of the group with Reid's signature punk style. This image was also utilized by Reid in his design of the Sex Pistols' press kit. See Reid & Savage, UP THEY RISE, p. 49 and Burgess and Parker, SATELLITE, p. 79.

        The Collected Essays of Sir Winston Churchill, complete in four volumes

      London: Library of Imperial History, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. Near fine. This set is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This four-volume set is a compilation of most of Churchill's major forewords and periodical contributions, some of which can be otherwise found only in the original periodical publications. The essays are sorted by subject and each of the volumes has a theme - Churchill and War, Churchill and Politics, Churchill and People, and Churchill at Large. In addition to being bibliographically important, The Collected Essays are aesthetically appealing. The production quality is impressive. There were two publisher binding options for The Collected Essays - both sumptuous and one positively extravagant. The lesser of the two was bound in quarter blue morocco and is lovely, but does not match the other 34 volumes of The Collected Works. The more elaborate binding option was full natural calfskin vellum with individual green slipcases, matching the 34 volumes of the preceding Centenary Edition of Churchill's book-length works. The bindings feature Churchill's coat of arms stamped in gilt. The text is printed on special 500-year archival paper and decorated with marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, head and foot bands, and silk ribbon markers. Each volume is protected in a dark green leather slipcase with the Churchill coat of arms embossed in gilt on the front cover. Either binding of The Collected Essays is scarce, but this more elaborate binding is rarely seen alone, as it is essential to completing a uniform full set of The Collected Works. Condition here of both the volumes and accompanying slipcases is near fine. The set has been used, but only gently by Mr. Cohen as a reference as he compiled his Bibliography. The bindings and pages still retain a stiff, unused feel. The bindings show no wear and have gently toned as they were intended to do, perhaps less than most sets we see. The contents are free of ownership marks and retain perfect edge gilt. Only a little normal wrinkling to the green satin ribbon markers betrays light use. The accompanying green leather slipcases remain uniformly clean with a trivial scratch to the front cover of the Volume III slipcase and minor dents to the upper front corners of the Volume I and IV slipcases. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A286, Woods/ICS A146(b), Langworth p.355.

        Watership Down.

      Paradine, London 1976 - Limited edition, one of 250 numbered copies, this copy being number 10. Octavo, original full morocco bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe.Raised bands, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front panel with gilt stamping of two rabits, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Signed by Richard Adams and the illustrator. In fine condition with the original slipcase. Although Watership Down was rejected by 13 publishers before Collings accepted it, it has never been out of print, and is Penguin Books' best-selling novel of all time. It won both the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Prize. The title refers to a hill in the north of Hampshire, England, near the area where Adams grew up. The story has its roots in the tales that Richard Adams made up for his young daughters during long car journeys. As he explained in 2007 in an interview with the BBC, he "began telling the story of the rabbits . improvised off the top of my head, as we were driving along." He based the struggles of the animals on the struggles he and his friends encountered during the Battle of Oosterbeek in 1944. The daughters insisted he write it down—"they were very, very persistent." After some delay he began writing in the evenings and completed it 18 months later. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Brutus Killed Caesar

      Akron, OH: Emily H. Davis Art Gallery of the University of Akron, 1976. Akron, OH: Emily H. Davis Art Gallery of the University of Akron, 1976. First Edition. Softcover. Good. Published with the support of the Sonnabend Gallery, New York, and the Ohio State University, Columbus. 4" x 10.75", oblong, [35] pp, spiral bound. Complete, but water damaged. Pages rippled, some discoloration to title page and rear endpaper (bleed from the cardstock covers), cover lightly soiled. A good reference copy of this scarce artist's book, one of Baldessari';s earliest printed works. "Each page spread consists of three photographs that echo the three-word structure of the title. On the left and right we see two profile views of men who are "looking at each other." These portraits remain constant throughout the book; what changes is the image between the two men. The first sequence reads like a rebus: portrait-knife-portrait; but subsequent examples offer different, often humorous, interpretations, as the knife is replaced by images of a gun, coat hanger, banana peel, potted plant, and can of paint, among other items" (Catharina Manchada).

        Watership Down

      London: Paradine, 1976.. London: Paradine, 1976. Limited edition, one of 250 numbered copies, this copy being number 10. Octavo, original full morocco bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe.Raised bands, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front panel with gilt stamping of two rabits, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Signed by Richard Adams and the illustrator. In fine condition with the original slipcase. Although Watership Down was rejected by 13 publishers before Collings accepted it, it has never been out of print, and is Penguin Books' best-selling novel of all time. It won both the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Prize. The title refers to a hill in the north of Hampshire, England, near the area where Adams grew up. The story has its roots in the tales that Richard Adams made up for his young daughters during long car journeys. As he explained in 2007 in an interview with the BBC, he "began telling the story of the rabbits ... improvised off the top of my head, as we were driving along." He based the struggles of the animals on the struggles he and his friends encountered during the Battle of Oosterbeek in 1944. The daughters insisted he write it down—"they were very, very persistent." After some delay he began writing in the evenings and completed it 18 months later.

        Rencontre *

      Raymond Meyer, Pully 5.1976 - En feuilles 35 x 28, chemise & étui bordés de toile, pièce de titre au premier plat de ce dernier. 11 (ou 21 ?) gravures originales signées et justifiées de Rolf Lehmann. Rolf Lehmann, dont votre serviteur cotôya les enfants de la famille dans les années 70 et quelque à Yverdon (les-Brumes, pas encore les-Bains), faisait de temps à autre un livre d'artiste, gravait, tirait ses planches et confiait le soins des collages à son épouse; on se rappelle que celle-ci peignait aussi à la main de petites maisons découpée dans du bois, qu'il y avait toujours du monde dans la leur et que l'accueil était des plus aimable pour les adolescents un peu niais que nous étions.Ouvrage constitué de 11 feuillets doubles et de deux demis:- les 10 premiers contiennent une double estampe, d'un côté le motif coloré signé de l'artiste et de l'autre le texte calligraphié (devrait-on dire calligravé ?) tiré dans une seconde forme gravée- le 11ème feuillet contenant l'achevé d'imprimer, également intégralement gravé (texte et image colorée)- deux demi-feuillets partagés en hauteur, l'un avec la liste chronologique des légendes poétiques, l'autre avec la justification, les deux rédigés main.Cette rencontre de deux formes de lyrisme épuré fait de ce livre cousu main une belle réussite. Richard Aeschlimann, qui tient galerie à l'enseigne de Plexus à Chexbres, nous précisa que seul la moitié du tirage en fut effectué; le relais qu'il aurait du prendre pour la seconde partie ne s'étant pas fait, en partie faute de papier. Édition originale. L'un des 58 exemplaires numérotés (moins de 30 en réalité) et signés sur Auvergne Richard-de-Bas.
