        The Fury (Original screenplay, plus four sets of revised pages)

      Los Angeles: Frank Yablans Presentations / Twentieth Century-Fox, 1977. Final script for the 1978 science fiction/horror film, "The Fury," directed by Brian DePalma, based on the 1976 novel by John Farris, written for the screen by Farris and DePalma, and starring Kirk Douglas, John Cassavetes, Carrie Snodgrass, Charles Durning, and Amy Irving. The script is accompanied by four sets of revised sheets (with the name of unidentified cast/crew member John Friedkin in pencil at the top of the first revision set) on pink and orange stock, dated August 15, September 12, September 16, and November 17, respectively. Literally a "mind-blowing" film, in which two young psychic savants (Amy Irving and Andrew Stevens) possess the ability to blow up the head of a another person by means of telekinesis. Douglas and Cassavetes play two men (one good, one evil) battling for control over the youngsters, with Cassavetes on the nefarious side of the line. One of DePalma's most entertaining genre films, pre-dating Cronenberg's slightly more intellectual "Scanners" by 3 years. White studio wrappers, dated June 20, 1977 and with credits for both Frank Yablans Presentations and Twentieth Century-Fox. Title page present, with a screenwriter credit for Farris. 133 leaves, blue stock, mechanically reproduced. Some corner creasing to the last several leaves else pages and wrapper are Near Fine, bound with two gold brads.

      Tokyo: Popeye, 1977-1979. Magazines are in uniformly very good to near fine condition, with only small faults; posters have folds and show light wear.. First Editions. Quartos. Five special volumes of the legendary Japanese magazine, Popeye: Frisbee, Tennis, Skiing, and Surfing (two distinct volumes). The Frisbee issue includes two posters, and the 1978 Surf Boy issue also comes with a poster. The defining Japanese magazine of its era: lavishly, thoroughly, and fetishistically illustrated with as exhaustive and compelling a gamut of illustrations of the Good Life as has ever been documented in print (except, possibly, in other special Japanese magazines of the era). An unbelievable marriage of design and information, presented in a style and format so ahead of its time as to have never been duplicated.

        Hand Colored Flowers

      New York: Printed by Mitchell Friedman, assisted by Jeremy Dine, 1977. Etching, soft-ground etching, aquatint, drypoint, engraving, and electric tools on one plumber's copper plate. Printed in black with hand painting in blue, two shades of pink, yellow, violet, and green watercolour after editioning. State i/iii. Edition of 50, No. 48/50, signed and dated in pencil lower right corner. In pristine condition. Image size: 35 5/8 x 23 ½ inches. An early masterpiece by Jim Dine, one of America's greatest artists. Jim Dine is regarded as one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. In the late 1950's and early 1960's he gained public attention in New York with his Happenings and mixed media assemblages, but his real acclaim followed through his association with the Pop art movement. An innovative and versatile artist, Dine works in a multitude of mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, and printmaking. As a printmaker, he displays an uncommon love of the art form and a penchant for innovative printmaking techniques. He commonly combines etching, drypoint, mezzotint, lithography and woodcut to create complicated images, which resonate with a sense of drama and hidden meaning. He utilizes a myriad of unconventional hand and machine tools, which he uses on the plate and sometimes directly on the paper. As with this print, Dine often recycles his plates to create new or altered images that often display a ghost image of the first work. Dine's oeuvre focuses on isolated objects, which act as the stand-in of autobiography. Hearts, statues, robes, and flowers become metaphors for Dine's life experiences and his visual quest for the self. This important print is the first of three prints, Hand Colored Flowers (1977), Black and White Flowers (1977), and Red Ochre Flowers (1978), which Dine made from the same plate. In creating this print, Dine used a staggering array of different engraving techniques to create a heavily worked plate. In addition to soft-ground etching, hard-ground etching, aquatint, and drypoint, Dine used a mezzotint rocker as an engraving tool and to raise burr. The plate was cut down for the two later states and a die-grinder was used to change the shape of the vase and the details of the bouquets. According to D'Oench, the dense plate work and heavy inking is typical of the prints editioned with Mitchell and Friedman, Dine's primary American printer between 1975 and 1979. This haunting image is an important early print by Dine and a wonderful expression of his artistic genius. It is rarely seen on the market, making it a true collector's item. D'Oench and Feinberg, Jim Dine Prints 1977-1985 , p. 1-38, 61, no. 1, state i/iii; Carpenter, Jim Dine Prints 1985-2000: A Catalogue Raisonné , no. 31.

Die schönste aller Bilderchroniken Die Luzerner Chronik des Diebold Schilling aus dem Jahr 1513 gilt als schönste alte Bilderchronik der Schweizerischen Eidgenossenschaft. Sie ist ein bedeutender Spiegel des politischen, gesellschaftlichen, wirtschaftlichen und religiösen Geschehens einer Stadt und eines Landes im Mittelalter.Aufwendig gestaltete Bilderchroniken sind kennzeichnend für das ausgehende 15. Jahrhundert. Sie sind nicht selten in fürstlichem Auftrag entstanden, sie finden sich jedoch vor allem im bürgerlichen Umfeld der politisch und wirtschaftlich erstarkten Städte.Wohlstand und Selbstbewußtsein der Stände spiegelten sich damals nicht nur in repräsentativen profanen und kirchlichen Bauten, sondern auch in der Herausgabe von Chroniken, die der Nachwelt das Zeitgeschehen in Wort und Bild überliefern sollten.Unter ihnen ist die Luzerner Chronik bezüglich der Reichhaltigkeit ihrer Bildaussagen über das Spätmittelalter unübertroffen. Ihr Wert liegt vor allem in der umfassenden Darstellung des Lebens der damaligen Zeit; alles wird wirklichkeitsgetreu wiedergegeben und im Text genau beschrieben. Politisches, gesellschaftliches, wirtschaftliches und religiöses Leben wird hier präsentiert. So bildet die Chronik eine Fundgrube für jede historische Disziplin.Der in spätmittelalterlicher Bastarda-Schrift abgefaßte Text tritt klar hinter den großzügigen Deckfarbenbildern zurück. Die Illustrationen geben sich in Zahl, Stil und Ausführung als etwas Besonderes zu erkennen. Im ganzen sind es nicht weniger als 443 Seiten mit Bildern, die zwischen Hoch-, Quer- und quadratischem Format wechseln; dazwischen befinden sich immer wieder doppelseitige Illuminationen.In satter Farbenpracht, mit festem Federstrich schwarz konturiert, begegnet uns eine geradezu überquellende Fülle von Menschengestalten, Bauten und Landschaftsmotiven jeder Art. Die bildhafte Wirkung wird durch vorgetäuschte Rahmen mit gotischer Holzprofilierung oder Maßwerk, Bandrollen, Ranken oder Umschriften unterstrichen.Der Text der Handschrift beschreibt die Geschichte der Eidgenossenschaft von den Anfängen bis 1513. Angesprochen wird vor allem die jüngere Geschichte, also die Zeit zwischen 1474 und 1513. Zur Debatte stand vor allem die Söldnerfrage, das Verhältnis der Eidgenossen zu den Großmächten und zu Kaiser und Reich.An der künstlerischen Ausstattung des Werkes waren zwei Maler beteiligt.Die Diebold Schilling zugewiesenen Bilder sind naiver, genauer gehalten und zeichnen sich durch kräftigere Farben aus. Sie zeugen noch vom gotischen Einschlag spätmittelalterlicher Miniaturmalerei traditioneller Prägung.Der zweite Meister ist unbekannt geblieben. Seine Bilder sind in helleren Tönen gehalten. Die Pinselführung zeugt von größerer Routine und ist bereits durch die Renaissance beeinflußt.Die Handschrift wurde 1577 in einen Schweinsledereinband gebunden, der mit einer Prägung im Stile der Spätrenaissance versehen ist.Der um 1460 geborene Diebold Schilling bekam den Anreiz zu seiner späteren Tätigkeit gleichsam mit in die Wiege gelegt. Vater und Onkel gleichen Namens (der Onkel übrigens war der Verfasser der berühmten Burgunder Chronik und der Spiezer Chronik) erlernten in der berühmten Lauberschen Schreibstube in Hagenau die Kunst des Schreibens.Der Onkel, der zuerst dieselbe Luzerner Kanzleistelle übernahm, in der ihn später Diebold Schillings Vater ablösen sollte, wurde im Dienst der Berner Regierung deren offizieller Chronist.Der junge Diebold Schilling widmete sich zunächst dem Studium des Kanonischen Rechts [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Collection of photographs from 11 Andy Warhol films, 1965-1974

      Various cities: Andy Warhol Films Syn-Frank Enterprises Levitt-Pickman Film Corporation Concorde Film Constantin-Film New World Pictures EMI, 1977. Substantial collection of photo advertisement for 11 of Andy Warhol's films, including every film release between "Flesh" (1968) and "Bad" (1974), as well as a single rare example from "My Hustler" (1965). The collection includes 178 photographs, 2 international posters, and a color transparency preview slide. Represented is a fascinating cross-section of advertising styles, including the US releases, a set of stills from The Netherlands (one of the first to distribute Warhol internationally) that have the blindstamp of the Netherlands censorship board, and German stills in their original mailing envelopes, easily the most visceral of the three. Collectively the photographs convey the many LGBT themes of Warhol's films, as well as their qualities of abstraction, detachment, and absurdity. A breakdown of the collection follows: My Hustler (1965): Vintage single weight black and white photograph, with contemporary notations on the verso. 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Near Fine. Flesh (1968): Two-color German lobby set of 22 photos. 9.75 x 12 inches (24 x 30 cm). In the original two-color Constantin-Film sack envelope.

        SEARCH AND DESTROY Nos. 1-11 [Complete Run] [with]: RE/SEARCH 1-3

      San Francisco: Search and Destroy / Rough Trade, 1977-1979 and 1980-1981. First Edition. Wraps. Near fine. Tabloid on newsprint. All folded once, as issued. Generally very good or better with some toning and some splitting here and there at folds. Occasional soil and chipping. Else a set clean and sound overall. Most issues 16-28pp. Heavily illustrated throughout with B&W photographs. Complete run of "the most ambitious publication of the entire punk press" (Berniere & Primois 218). Founded by Vale Hamanaka while work- ing at City Lights Bookstore and originally funded by Ferlinghetti and Allen Ginsberg, SEARCH & DESTROY was (according to Jello Biafra) "the greatest underground zine I've ever seen [...] where the definition of punk rock was much wider" (quoted 219). Named for the Stooge's an- them, SEARCH AND DESTROY remains one of the most important, vibrant, and influential periodicals to emerge from punk. Includes features, interviews, photos, and like from all the major (and many minor) punk figures in both the UK and US: Sex Pistols, The Ramones, Pere Ubu, Crime, Dead Kennedys, Patti Smith, Screamers, Clash, Throbbing Gristle, Buzzcocks, Talking Heads, Devo, Weirdos, and Suicide. SEARCH AND DESTROY also served as a bridge between the punk scene and the literary/visual artists who both influenced and were influenced by punk: Ginsberg, Burroughs, Ballard, Acker, John Waters, David Lynch, Bruce Conner, Russ Meyer, and like. All issues first printings, with the first issue in its first state (with hand-stamped covers) and #10 and RE/SEARCH 1-3 not the later reprints. Though the zine technically ceased publication with issue #11, it quickly morphed into RE/SEARCH, a magazine which ran for three issues in an identical format and with nearly identical concerns before evolving into a glossy annual. An uncommonly complete run of this seminal punk zine. [Triggs 46].

        James Bond, The Spy Who Loved Me.

      London, Pan Books 1977, 1977. Spy novel, a paperback original; published simultaneously with a hardcover edition. Slim octavo, pictorial card wrappers. Near fine. SIGNED and INSCRIBED by James Bond actor Roger Moore to half-title 'Best Wishes | Roger Moore 007'. This is the original story / novel of the 1977 James Bond film 'The Spy Who Loved Me' written under licence from Ian Fleming's copyright holders Glidrose. When Fleming sold the film rights to his novels he would not consent to this title and Moonraker being filmed as written; he felt 'The Spy Who Loved Me' was an experimental novel (with female perspective and narrative), and 'Moonraker' was somewhat dated; therefore both would need re-writing and Christopher Wood was brought in by director Lewis Gilbert to produce a screenplay and subsequent novel, a task he repeated for the next film 'Moonraker'.

        Robert Adams: Denver: A Photographic Survey of the Metropolitan Area [SIGNED]

      Colorado Associated University Press, Boulder, Colorado 1977 - First edition, first printing. Signed in pencil on the title page by Adams. Hardcover. Black cloth-covered boards with title stamped in white on cover and spine; with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs and text by Robert Adams. 124 pp., with 92 black-and-white plates. 9 x 10-3/4 inches. Fine in Very Good dust jacket (sunning to the jacket, endemic to the title). From the publisher: "Denver was once known for the grandeur of its setting and the clarity of its air, but haas more recently gained notoriety for its uncontrolled growth. Among problems, for example, that have accompanied the growth are a rate of violent crime that is now nearly double that of new York, and a smog level routinely exceeding that of Los Angeles. Robert Adams brings to this landscape an acute vision, one that has earned him widespread respect as a photographer.Adams' interest is in areas of the city that are not usually thought memorable -- subdivisions, freeways, shopping centers, and industrial lands. he discovers in these lost scenes an unorthodox beauty, even while establishing in them our failure to create fully humane living conditions. Those concerned with the future of the suburban American West will find this a document of major importance." Signed by Author. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        In Patagonia [Hardcover Advance Proof Copy]

      London/NY: Jonathan Cape/Summit. 1977/1978. A hardcover advance proof copy of the American edition of Chatwin's first book, created from a first British edition, with the addition of a U.S. proof dust jacket, featuring quotes from British publications (including Paul Theroux, writing for the London Times). The British trade edition has had its free endpages excised and pasted over the pictorial pastedowns; and the photographs that graced the text of the British edition have also been excised, in keeping with the appearance of the American edition. This copy was obviously sent out and used for review: reviewer's marks and comments in text, and the blank jacket flaps have been filled with the reviewer's notes. The book, apart from the intended excisions and notes, is fine; the proof jacket (again, apart from the reviewer notes), is spine and edge-sunned, with the title and author handwritten on the spine, largely faded; overall near fine. An uncommon issue, presumably done prior to the issuance of an American proof copy and different from the U.K. first edition in ways that parallel the eventual U.S. edition (and U.S. proof). First Edition. Hardcover.

Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of wear. A very nice example. "A stunningly beautiful book . . .
