        1976 Star Trek Convention Photographs

      1976 - A collection of more than 150 amateur photographs from the 1976 Oakland, California Star Trek Convention featuring the cast of the original show and various attendees. Overall fine with only a bit of fading to some of the color images but most are fresh and new. The photographs feature William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForrest Kelley, Nichelle Nichols, George Takai, Walter Koenig, James Doohan, as well other actors from the series decked out in their 1970s best, speaking on stage or signing autographs. Just over 20 of the photos depict convention-goers hanging out, traveling to the show, dressed in Star Trek costumes, posing with actors, and mugging for the camera.The convention snaps are accompanied by another 400 amateur (and a few professional) photographs of television broadcasts of the show and various Star Trek stars' on-air appearances ($25,000 Pyramid, Hollywood Squares). In the days before VCRs, taking photographs of the TV was one of the only ways to capture images from a show. Most of the images appear fuzzy but still retain a crude charm, particularly images of the little-seen 1975 TV special, The Star Trek Dream.A wonderful group of photographs that capture Star Trek at the height of its cult status in the years after its cancellation but before the first Star Wars and Star Trek movies brought science fiction into the mainstream.

        Signed photograph.

      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.

From the 3rd Annual Sol Feinstone Memorial Lecture series at West Point. This lecture given by Pulitzer Prize winning Jewish novelist and writer Herman Wouk. Wouk served in the Navy in the Pacific Theater of WWII. He addresses the west point graduates about The Meaning of Freedom, concluding, “In the last five years, working on ‘The Winds of War…' I've spoken three times: to the Naval Academy, to the Naval War caollege, and now to the United States Military Academy. It isn't because I'm a militarist. I'm not intrigued… by the romance of war. Let me make this plain to you. In my view war is a massive criminal absurdity… I believe, heart and soul, that in days to come it will fade from the minds of men and nations as a possible way to behave. That is what I'm trying to say in my books. ” This cannot have been well-received at West Point, and certainly would not have been a speech it would have wanted to promote or make readily available outside the academy. OCLC lists only one copy worldwide (Westpoint! ) Ex-library with Jewish institutional stamp and usual markings. In very good condition. Rare. (SPEC-42-20) .
