        Amazing Gerald Ford assassination attempt archive including 7 original signed pieces documenting the historic event from an eyewitness account

      Amateur photographer and history buff Terence J. Cox saw history in the making on September 22, 1975 in San Francisco and did what any aspiring photographer would do - point and shoot. The result of that historical day is contained in this archive. According to newspaper clippings, Cox was standing only a mere 10 feet away from the would-be assassin, Sara Jane Moore on Post Street across from the St. Francis Hotel. This attempt came 17 days after Charles Manson follower, Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme made an attempt on the President's life. Moore at one time immersed herself in counter-culture to become a political revolutionary. She was recruited by the FBI informant to help with the Patty Hearst kidnapping. After her radical friends found out she was an FBI spy, they turned their backs on her. Moore's attempt at assassinating the President was a way back into their good graces. After being arrested that day, Moore plead guilty to the assassination attempt and received a life sentence. She was up for parole in May 2000. The value of this archive is in two original photos signed by Ford taken moments before the shots rang out like firecrackers. One photo is 8x 10 and inscribed "To Terry Cox, best wishes, Gerald R. Ford" an then is signed again. The other photo is an 8 x 10 color photo again signed by Ford. This one is mounted to brown matting with a plaque at the bottom. It can be easily removed without harming the photo. The archive also includes: Four 8 x 10 black and white pictures of the scene that day after the shooting happened. Three, 3.5 x 5 color pictures of that fateful day moments after the shooting. Three newspaper clippings. A TLS on White House stationery dated November 17, 1976 to Mr. Cox. The letter is autopenned and then signed above it. In part the letter reads, "Dear Mr. Cox: . . . Long after the hard work and hurried pace of these past weeks are forgotten, I will remember the generous encouragement and goodwill which were extended to me and my entire family by our fellow Americans. It has been a tremendous honor to serve the people of our great country, and I will never forget this wonderful privilege." The letter comes with the original transmittal envelope. Ford's signature while he was a Representative for the Michigan 5th district February 20, 1957. Ford signed, "Rep. Gerald R. Ford Jr." in ballpoint pen. A signed photocopy of a newspaper article on the assassination attempt Two 8 x 10 white House issued color photos of Ford, presumably autopenned. A letter dated March 18, 1976 on White House stationery to Cox signed by Mildred Leonards, Ford's assistant, explaining autopenned signatures. "The autopenned signature is in fact an authentic signature (although not accepted by autograph dealers) inasmuch as it is simply a method wherein the President's exact signature is written by an electric pen. Since the majority of persons requesting the President's autograph are more interested in their historical value than in their monetary value, this method has proved to be most satisfactory in Administrations in the past, as well as the present one."

        Interview With The Vampire

      New York: Knopf. NF/NF. 1976. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 10, 20, 24. 0394498216 . 1st edition/1st printing. Stated First Edition of author's first book, and SIGNED by the author in red ink on a loosely laid in postcard-siz ed piece of paper. The book is bound in dark gray paper covered boards with a black cloth spine with gilt printing, and with red upper page edges. It is straight, clean, tight, the red upper page edge is in excellent condition, and it has no soiling or handwriting; there is, however, a small 'blind' (no color) personal name embossment stamp to the upper title page corner. The dustjacket is the notorious gold foil finish, almost impossible not to find scratched or creased badly. It is price intact, at $8.95, and is really in excellent condition; no hard creases even to the flaps (a couple of small, short and faint wrinkles--one to upper back panel and one to upper front panel--that show when you slant it just right in the light), just a couple of small surface scratch lines to spine and lower front panel that haven't removed the gold color from the foil, and just a mere touch of shelving wear to spine end edges. Quite an excellent example of Ms. Rice's first book! ; Signed by Author .

      Chicago: University of Chicago Press, (1976)., 1976 Maclean, Norman. A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT AND OTHER STORIES. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, (1976). "We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. He told us about Christ's disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen.'' First Edition of Norman Maclean's elegiac autobiographical novella adapted into the Academy Award-winning 1992 Robert Redford directed film. The first issue, first printing with the correct issue points, 'adways' instead of 'always' on pp. 27 and different ISBN numbers on the copyright page and rear dustwrapper flap. 8vo. 217 pp. A fine copy in blue cloth, a hint only of foxing to the bottom edge, silver titles to the spine in a neatly price-clipped fine pictorial dustwrapper.

        The Education of Little Tree

      Delacorte (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. .

        The Hobbit, 1976 Folio/Deluxe Misbound Editions, Both States

      London: Folio/Allen and Unwin, 1976. First Thus. Quarter Leather. J.R.R. Tolkien. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Hobbit, or There and Back Again, by J.R.R. Tolkien. These are the 1976 Folio Edition, 1st Impression's. This set of two books, are the first Folio Society publication of The Hobbit. They are examples of the two Folio Society variants, both in Near Fine condition with slipcase's. These are the true 1st printings of the 1st Folio Edition, with the Folio 1979 maroon colored edition being the 2nd printing of the Folio edition (per Hammond). Here you have both states with one having the Folio Society Title page, and the second Title page does not state "Folio Society" as it should, instead the pages are identical to the 1976 A&U Deluxe edition! Per Hammond, the Folio Society was to take the Deluxe edition pages and remove certain pages from the beginning (title page, copyright page, etc) and replace them with the Folio pages. However, a very few of the books were bound by the Folio Society with all of the original Deluxe pages included and not replaced with Folio pages, but with the binding being the Folio format. Very Scarce indeed! Gilt is still bright and untarnished on these books. Most minor of scuffing to the leather on the spines, a few liquid spots to the exterior of the slipcase's, a slight bit of browning to the fold areas of the maps in one copy the only faults. Very unusual and hard to find both variants. Additional digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Near Fine / No Jacket, as Issued.

        Watership Down

      1976. first edition. One of Only Ten Copies With an Original Watercolor and a Fore-Edge Painting[FORE-EDGE PAINTING] ADAMS, Richard. LAWRENCE, John, artist. NOBLE, Don, fore-edge painter. Watership Down. Illustrated by John Lawrence. London: Penguin Books / Kestrel Books, 1976. First edition with illustrations by John Lawrence. Octavo (9 1/8 x 6 inches; 232 x 153 mm). Specially bound edition limited to 250 copies, of which this is number 245 (this being one of only ten copies with a fine fore-edge painting signed at the bottom right "Noble") and with a fine two-page watercolor by John Lawrence, with his initials at the lower center. Additionally this copy is signed by John Lawrence on the frontispiece and by Richard Adams on the verso of the title-page. Full green morocco, front cover and spine decorated in gilt, spine decorated in gilt in compartments, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. A fine copy housed in the original matching marbled board slipcase.This fore-dege painting was one of 10 specially commissioned for Chas. J. Sawyer in 1976 by Don Noble - a contemporary of Martin Frost, the most prolific fore-edge painter of modern times… "Frost trained in theatre design. He then worked for a local opera house, the BBC, and in graphics. He eventually met and became friends with Don Noble, a man who had 20 years experience in creating fore-edge paintings. Noble taught Frost about fore-edge paintings and Frost went on to create a “small number” of paintings. However, around 1980, Frost “won a commission for a quantity of book paintings from an antiquarian book dealer.” It was then that Frost decided to paint fore-edges full time and has since created over 3,000 fore-edge paintings and “portrait miniatures for Cosway-style bindings.” (Jennie Stramiello, Fore-Edge Paintings).A Fore-Edge Painting is a scene painted on the edges of a book whilst it is fanned open in a special clamp to allow the artist to do the painting - and then, when the book is closed the fore-edge painting disappears under the gilt.The mystery of a disappearing art form…There is little known about fore-edge paintings, however, they are part of a much larger topic: books. So many things go into creating a book, it is far more involved than an author just telling a story. There have been many bookbinders, publishers, illustrators or painters and book collectors who have helped to shape the history of both books and fore-edge paintings. So why have these precious pieces of art virtually vanished from society? Why do people not know about fore-edge paintings anymore?The earliest known disappearing fore-edge painting dates from 1649. The earliest known signed and dated fore-edge painting dates back to 1653 - a family coat of arms painted on a 1651 Bible…

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. . First Edition. Hardcover.
