        Fumble University

      1976-1978. Wood . Very Good. Colorful, fun, psychedelic cartoonish manuscript spoof of dysfunctional "Fumble-U", "the inside-out University Where You DIscover Everything Backwards." Very large format, with a custom heavy wood album containing seventeen original works of pop art pertaining to this mythical university. The album cover itself measures 53 by 37 cm, and the artwork, including their brightly colored framing bands, are 45.5 by 35.5 cm. The artwork is rendered in pen and ink, oil on board, acrylic, etc. The paintings are mounted on board and usually covered with plastic. The wooden album which contains the panels is itself a work of art by the artist, with its deeply chiseled shapes and painted representations of a woods, ballooning letters for the title, etc. This sets the tone for the graphics within, which include the text, is very much in keeping with the loose, flowing, wavy, goofy, anarchic and modish style that floweredi n the late 1960s. One can easily imagine the author ideating and executing much of this while on a hallucinogen, and certainly that is the impression he was seeking to leave. The second panel is one that is primarily text -- a letter to parents from Dr. Fumble -- and its gobblegygook parody brings to mind the bombast of administration in "Animal House". By the next two panels we know that we are in the presence of stoners and our trip to this university is like a magic carpet ride at the dawing of the "Age of Aquarius". Here jump out neon reds, yellows, blues as representations of the planets in the heavens, and evoked is the artwork of a "groovy" sci-fi paperback. This work is not a narrative per se, and so some of the panels following are outlandish representations of people like those in the Simpsons. Tying together everything, though, is a sensibility, and it is all of one piece. Housed in a wooden album with the upper cover carved and painted by the artist. We have to believe that Hemstreet was hoping to have this published. And certainly its quality is on the level of some highly regarded 'zines which have in more recent times excited hipsters.

        Triumph of the Will. Illustrated by Arthur Thrall and Walter Hamady

      Mt. Horeb, WI: The Perishable Press, 1976. Unique copy with one-of-a-kind full blue-gray morocco designer binding by Samuel Feinstein, the book one of 150 copies on Frankfurt & Frankfurt Cream paper, signed by the author, Armand Schwerner, on the penultimate page. Page size: 8 x 7.5 inches and 5-3/4 x 7-1/4 inches; 24pp, 12 of which printed. Bound by Samuel Feinstein: full blue-gray morocco over boards with 22K "moon" gold tooling and onlays of red and yellow, with title on front panel and author's name on back panel, both panels with variations of the musical triangles created by Arthur Thrall for Hamady's use, spine gilt tooled with musical staves and notes bridging the designs on each panel. The triangles are gilt tooled with musical notations and 5-line staffs on either the blue/gray morocco or maroon onlays, gilt-tooling over gold morocco triangles at right angles to top and bottom of large triangles, repeating the triangles within triangles theme. Turn-ins with gilt-tooled squares (notes); sewn on tabs to ensure book opens flat, original wrappers of blue-gray French marbled paper, with diel-cut profile emerging from the front center in a swirling sea of pattern and color; signed at rear tail turn-in, in gold gilt, "Samuel Feinstein" housed in grey cloth over boards with Ultrasuede lining. Laid in is original publication announcement from the Perishable Press featuring another reincarnation of Arthur Thrall's intriguing musical triangles. Printed in Sabon-Antiqua in blues, greens, reds, blind and brown on/into alternating papers. Hamady notes in his PP Bibliography that Arthur Thrall allowed free reign with his intaglio of triangular invention and that allowed a lot of playing with press, color & spatial locations. Consequently, triangles sit atop triangles, sit next to one another or next to one another, pyramid-like, all with the suggestion of notes and musical staff swirling in the confined space. Armand Schwerner (1927-1999) Belgian-born avant-garde Jewish-American poet taught at New York City area universities. PP #77.

      Walkerprints 1976. Black and white promotional photograph, 285 x 235 mm, signed by Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor in blue biro. This rare photograph dates from the period when Queen were riding the crest of international success. 1974 saw the release of their breakthrough album Sheer Heart Attack, which included the hit "Killer Queen", and in 1975 they had produced their magnum opus A Night At The Opera, which spawned their greatest success "Bohemian Rhapsody". 1976 saw them touring and releasing A Day At The Races, which cemented their hold on the charts. This photograph shows the band on top of the world; the glint in Freddie's eye suggests that he's comfortable there.

        The Collected Essays of Sir Winston Churchill in four volumes

      London: Library of Imperial History, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. This is a full, four volume set of the first and only edition of Churchill's Collected Essays. This is a clean, near-fine set. The bindings remain square and tight with sharp corners, and bright spine gilt. We note only a trivial scuff to the lower front hinge of Volume II and incidental shelf-wear to the cloth boards. The contents are immaculate – crisp and bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. The set feels unread. In 1976, the Library of Imperial History issued this set as a welcome follow-up to the Collected Works, which included only book-length publications. Both the content and aesthetics of this four-volume set are compelling, compiling 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. The text is printed on special 500-year archival paper and decorated with marbled endpapers, gilt top edge, and head and foot bands. There were two standard binding options for The Collected Essays - both sumptuous. The one offered here (the "Centenary Edition") is quarter blue morocco over blue cloth as opposed to the white vellum in which full sets of the Collected Works were typically bound. As a stand-alone set, the quarter blue morocco binding may be preferred. The binding is both more attractive and more durable than the white vellum, which can age poorly. In either binding, sets of the Collected Essays are desirable, both for content and shelf-presence. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A286, Woods/ICS A146(b), Langworth p.355

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

      London: Library of Imperial History, 1976. First edition. Hardcover. This pristine set of Churchill's Collected Essays is among the best-preserved examples of the vellum bindings we have seen. 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. The vellum bindings were meant to tone and age naturally, but often yellow both considerably and unevenly. We are seldom able to offer a set this compellingly bright and clean. This set is one of three acquired by us from a venerable London bookseller, who acquired the sets new from the publisher and stored them in a cupboard until they were recently made available to us. The bindings are pristine, showing no discernible signs of handling, perfectly square and tight with sharp corners and no visible wear. Shelf presentation is superlative, the spines improbably bright and clean. The contents are likewise immaculate, crisp and bright, with satin ribbon markers still in the original position placed by the publisher. We find no previous ownership marks. The gilt page edges are vividly bright with no discernible flaws noted. The books are clearly unread and we may well be the first to have ever removed them from the slipcases. In short, the set appears flawless. The publisher's green leather slipcases are likewise virtually flawless. An exceptional example of an important work, with both compelling contents and striking shelf presence. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A286, Woods/ICS A146(b), Langworth p.355.
