        Two solo songs from the composer's cantata Landscapes and Remembrances. Autograph musical manuscripts in piano-vocal score. Signed "G. Menotti." Ca. 1976....

      Folio (ca. 313 x 237 mm). Unbound. "The abandoned mansion (South Carolina) for contralto." 1f. (title), 5, [i] (blank) pp. "Farewell at a train station in Vermont (for tenor)." 8 pp. Notated in pencil on 12-stave printed music paper with "G Schirmer Royal Brand No. 54... " printed at lower margin. Small check mark in blue pencil to upper corner of each page of "The abandoned mansion." First measure of "Farewell" with a bass drum cue. Minor erasures throughout. Slightly worn; small rust stains from a paper clip to upper margin of outer pages, slightly affecting one letter of a tempo marking. Landscapes and Remembrances, a cantata for soloists, chorus, and orchestra to texts by Menotti, was first performed at Uihlein Hall in Milwaukee on May 14, 1976, with Judith Blegen (soprano), Ani Yervanian (contralto), Vahan Khanzadian (tenor), Gary Kendall (baritone), and the Milwaukee Symphony and Bel Canto Chorus, James Keeley, conducting. "The nine-part Landscapes and Remembrances is a set of musical impressions drawn from the composer's life, ranging from his arrival in America as a teenager to his discovery of South Carolina, where he founded the Spoleto USA Festival in 1977... The structure of Landscapes consists of alternating choruses and orchestral songs, although several of the choral sections make use of solo voices as well. The titles in general reflect the geography of remembrance at the root of each... " "The Abandoned Mansion," the first song in Landscapes, is "a brooding piece in E-flat minor... infused with the past. Its constantly arcing melodic lines are supported by persistent tremolo figures that give way only briefly in the middle of the song to sustained chords--a section of quasi-recitative. The key to the song lies in these words: 'A visitor to the South is an intruder into the reigns of ghosts'." "Farewell at a Train Station in Vermont," the final song, is "concerned with love, but this time with the bitterness of parting. 'In everyone's life', Menotti has commented, 'there is a farewell never forgotten, the pain of which never heals', a sentiment he had previously expressed in his libretto for Barber's opera Vanessa. It is evident that this section of Landscapes is... rooted in actuality... Over a solemn adagio figure, the solo voice sets the stage for this short scena: 'The train is late. It rains as it must when lovers part forever. Without a word we pace the empty platform, measuring our protracted agony with uncharted steps'." John Ardoin: The Stages of Menotti, pp. 129-131. Menotti's autograph musical manuscripts are very rare to the market....

        Sorcières: Les Femmes Vivent. No. 1 (1976) through No. 24 (1981/1982) (all published)

      A complete run in 24 issues of the feminist French arts and literature journal, founded by Xavière Gauthier (pseudonym of Mireille Boulaire) with the goal of giving women a place to express themselves freely through writing and imagery, including prose and poetry, each issue corresponding to a specific theme or topic and with an individual subtitle, themes include food, prostitution, prisoners, death, blood, desires, and many others. Profusely illustrated throughout. Lg. 8vo. Orig. wrpps. Paris 1976-1982. The first issue begins with an essay by Gauthier titled "Pourquoi Sorcières?", in which the founder describes why she chose "Witches" as the name of the journal, citing the fact that witches dance, they sing, they live, and they enjoy, and have only historically appeared ugly and wicked because they posed a threat to a male-dominated society. Over the course of its publication, many well-known artist and writers made contributions to Sorcières, including Hélène Cixous, Annie Leclerc, Marguerite Duras, Chantal Chawaf, Nancy Huston, Viviane Forrester, and Julia Kristeva, et. al. The subtitles of each issue are as follows: 1. La Nourriture 2. La Voix 3. Se Prostituer 4. Enceintes. Porter, Accoucher 5. Odeurs 6. Prisonnieres 7. Ecritures 8. Fidelites 9. Le Sang 10.

        Brutus Killed Caesar

      1976. 108708 BALDESSARI, John. Brutus Killed Caesar. [4] pp. Illustrated with 33 photographic tryptichs. Oblong 8vo., 100 x 275 mm, bound in publisher's spiral-bound wrappers. Preserved in tan cloth box. Akron: The Emily H. Davis Art Gallery of The University of Akron, [1976].$ 2500.00 First Edition. Printed in a limited edition. The artist John Baldessari juxtaposes three images in a tryptich format. Each page repeats the use of the same two portraits: an young man on the left and and an older man on the right. The center image then creates the crucial dialogue between the other two - Baldessari makes use of a variety of objects that could all be used as murder weapons - some a bit more mundane than others: a kitchen knife, a banana peel, an apple and a revolver, a cue ball, a briefcase a wire coat hanger, among others. A very fine copy of this conceptual artist's book.

      Graz, Aula Verlag, 1976-2013. - ca. 30-60 Seiten mit zahlreichen Abbildungen pro Heft, die hier vorliegende Partie umfasst 10 vollständige und 23 unvollständige Jahrgänge, einzelne Heft mit Alterungs-und Lagerschäden, insgesamt guter und sauberer Zustand. ----------------------------------------- Die Aula (Untertitel: Das freiheitliche Magazin) ist ein 1951 gegründetes rechtsextremes österreichisches Monatsmagazin. Das Magazin sieht sich als Sprachrohr der „national-freiheitlichen" Studentenverbindungen Österreichs. Medieninhaber sind die der FPÖ nahestehenden Freiheitlichen Akademikerverbände (FAV) Österreichs. Die Aula sieht sich als „unangepaßtes Monatsmagazin für den unangepaßten Leser" und tritt für „die deutsche Volks- und Kulturgemeinschaft", das Recht auf Selbstbestimmung der Völker, die Freiheit der Wissenschaft, die Wahrheit in der Forschung und Lehre im Sinne der abendländischen Kulturtradition sowie das Recht auf Privateigentum ein. Von österreichischen Sozial- und Politikwissenschaftlern wird die Aula als rechtsextrem eingestuft. Auch das Dokumentationsarchiv des österreichischen Widerstandes und der ehemalige Informationsdienst gegen Rechtsextremismus stufen die Zeitschrift als rechtsextrem ein. Laut dem Journalisten Hans-Henning Scharsach fungiert die Aula als publizistische Kontaktbörse zwischen den Anhängern der FPÖ und dem etablierten Rechtsextremismus. Diese Kontakte wurden auch durch Inserate von rechtsextremen Organisationen wie dem Nationaldemokratischen Hochschul-Bund, dem Grabert Verlag, der Österreichischen Landsmannschaft und der Zeitschrift Unabhängige Nachrichten hergestellt.

Writing in "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century," Vince Aletti describes "The American Monument" as "almost maniacally inclusive, rounding up everything from Plymouth Rock to a plaque commemorating the Pony Express in Salt Lake City and treating them with the same nonchalance. The doggedness of Friedlander's quest is at once astounding and hilarious. History stalks the landscape at every turn." A brilliant book, conceptually ambitious in the manner of the New Topographic school of Adams and Baltz, but with a deadpan wit that is Friedlander's own. Parr and Badger writing in "The Photobook: A History" go even further in their unqualified praise for this book: "The American Monument" is an encyclopedic lesson in how to put a picture together."One of 2,000 unnumbered copies.Slight age-toning to covers. Binding in overall good+ to very good, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Shepard, Stephen Sondheim, Music Director Paul Gemignani, Kenneth Glancy (RCA company president) and Hal Prince.

This folio is inscribed on the ffep: "Dear Tom: To our dear, dear friend. We hope the next book we present will be your very own opera. Love Mathilde and Al, May 27th, 1977." There is also a later ink inscription by Shepard gifting this book to a collector. Thomas Z. Shepard's archive is already residing at Yale University; it contains virtually every item related to his prolific career so this is an exceedingly rare escapee. . Signed. First Edition. Hard Cover.

        New York Rocker 1-10

      NY Rocker February 1976-December 1977, New York - 30 x 42.5cm, 10 volumes (ca 20-60pp each). Numerous Black & White plates. A little fragile with some edge chipping, but in remarkably good condition considering the age and nature of publication. The early downtown NY punk/rock scene in all it's glory. From a map of where everybody lives to hundereds of photographs of who was who at CBGB's, Max's and the like to profiles of The Ramones, Patti Smith, New York Dolls, Television, Richard Hell, The Runaways, Iggy, Blondie, Cherry Vanilla, Mink DeVille, Mapplethorpe, John Cale and english people (Pistols, Clash etc.) In many cases NY rocker was the first on the scene, when it was a much smaller affair. Texts and photography are phenomenal, and comprise one of the most complete records of underground rock and the downtown scene during the period. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
