      MacMillan, New York 1977 - Strugatsky, Arkady and Boris (authors), Theodore Sturgeon (introduction). ROADSIDE PICNIC / TALE OF THE TROIKA. New York: Macmillan, 1977. First Edition in English. First American Edition. 8vo., 245pp. Quarter maroon cloth over blue paper covered boards, stamped silver at the spine. A very fine, fresh example in a very fine bright dustwrapper. A brilliant example of the book which served as the basis for Andrei Tarkovsky's masterful 1979 film, "Stalker," for which the Strugatskys co-wrote the screenplay. Rarely seen in any condition, this is a rare collectible copy. Certainly the most important of Soviet science-fiction writers are the brothers Strugatsky [Arkady and Boris] whose popularity extends throughout Europe & America. Their cannon of works illuminates the S-F world & their highlight is Roadside Picnic / Tale of the Troika translated masterfully by Antonina W. Bouis [Russian: Piknik na obochine]. The preface to the first English & First American edition was written by Theodore Sturgeon. ". . . The Strugatskys posit that the Earth experiences a brief visit from extraterrestrials, who leave behind them - well, call it litter, such as might be left by you and me (in one of our less socially conscious moments) after a roadside picnic. The nature of these discards, products of an utterly alien technology, defies most earthly logic, to say nothing of earthly analytical science, and their potential is limitless. Warp these potentials into all-too-human goals - the quest for pure knowledge for its own sake, the search for new devices, new techniques, to achieve new heights in human well-being; the striving for profit, with its associated competitiveness; and the ravenous thirst for new and more terrible weapons - and you have the framework of this amazing short novel. Add the Strugatskys' deft and supple handling of loyalty and greed, of friendship and love, of despair and frustration and loneliness, and you have a truly superb tale, ending most poignantly in what can only be called a blessing. You won't forget it. Tale of a Troika is a very different thing indeed--so different that it might have been written by quite different authors - which is the highest possible tribute to the authors' versatility. How much you like it will depend on your taste for satire and lampoon. It is, in nature, reminiscent of Lem's Memoirs Found in a Bathtub, with (and here I confess to a highly subjective evaluation) one important difference: Lem's approach and style are, in comparison, unleavened, no matter how deeply he plunges into the surrealistic and the absurd. The cumulative effect is Kafkaesque horror. The Strugatsky fury - and it is fury: disgust with hypocrisy, with bureaucratic bumbling, with self-serving, self-saving distortions of logic and of truth and of initially decent human motivations - their fury is laced with laughter, rich with scorn, effervescent with the comic spirit. One has to search back to Alice's tea party to find a scene as mad as the chamber of the Troika; yet, in retrospect, one realizes that one has experienced a profoundly serious work, since every bent line illuminates a straight one, all illogic signifies the purity from which it has departed. A word of appreciation must be extended to Ms. Antonina W. Bouis, the translator of these short novels. Russian I do not know; fiction I do; and I must honor anyone who can so deftly pass emotion, character dimension, even conversational idiom, through so formidable a barrier". - Theodore Sturgeon, San Diego, California 1976. The story was written by the Strugatsky brothers in 1971 (the first outlines written January 18 - 27, 1971 in Leningrad, with the final version completed between October 28 & November 3, 1971 in Komarovo . It was first published in the Avrora literary magazine in 1972, issues 7 - 10. Parts of it were published in the Library of Modern Science Fiction book series, vol. 25, 1973. It was also printed in the newspaper Youth of Estonia in 1977 -1978. More [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Butterfly's Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast

      (Watertown, MA): Bromer, Anne & David, 1977. (24)pp.The text is printed on Japanese paper with ornamentation in green. Wood engravings by Sarah Chamberlain, as her first miniature book commission. The first miniature book published by the Bromers. Midori Kunikata-Cockram captures the whimsical nature of the text, which was the first English poem for children intended for sheer amusement. The front and rear boards are covered with parchment, on which the artist has hand-drawn a pattern of vines and flowers in crimson ink depicting the insects and small animals attending the feast. Delicate onlays of black morocco create the silhouette of a vine climbing up the book's crimson morocco spine. Inside, endpapers printed with oak leaves and cut-out leaves with hand-drawn shading in pastel reference the oak tree in the poem, beneath which the revels were held. Housed in a crimson suede-lined box, the exterior of which is covered with paper hand-tooled in a foliate pattern and gilt-titled to the crimson morocco spine. A parchment tab painted with a butterfly on one side, and a grasshopper on the reverse, helps to lift the book out of the box. With the binder's blind-stamped mark to the penultimate endleaf, and signed by Chamberlain to the colophon. Extremely fine. (2 1/2 by 2 1/8; 63x53mm).

        The View from Serendip

      Random House, New York 1977 - First edition. Fine in fine dustwrapper with slight toning to the edges of the flaps. Inscribed by Arthur C. Clarke to his protege, one-time secretary, and longtime friend Ian Macauley; "To Ian, this souvenir of a quarter century! All the best, Arthur. NYC 11 Oct. 77." Macauley, an award-winning *New York Times* journalist, was the dedicatee of Clarke's first published hardcover novel, *Islands in the Sky* (1952). He also edited Clarke's book of collected essays, *Greetings, Carbon-Based Bipeds!* (2000). Clarke wrote the last chapter of *Childhood End*, while visiting Macauley in Atlanta, where he was reportedly greatly influenced by their discussions. A nice association copy of this miscellany, including speculations on space, science and the sea, a short science-fiction story, and "an equatorial autobiography." Macauley has made several pencil and pen alterations in the text, apparently while preparing the essays for the collected volume. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The New Mickey Mouse Club Book

      New York, New York, U.S.A.: Grosset & Dunlap 1977 - 64 pages, fully illustrated with black & white photos and drawings. A history of the original Mickey mouse Club with an introduction to the "New Mickey Mouse Club and the new Mouseketeers. "In the 1970s, Walt Disney Productions revived the concept but modernized the show cosmetically, with a disco re-recording of the theme song and a more ethnically diverse group of young cast members. The sets were brightly colored and more simplistic than the detailed black and white artwork of the original. Like the original, nearly each day's episode included a vintage cartoon, though usually color ones from the late 1930s and onward. Serials were usually old Disney movies, cut into segments for twice-weekly inclusion. Movies included Third Man on the Mountain, The Misadventures of Merlin Jones and its sequel The Monkey's Uncle (both starring Tommy Kirk), Emil and the Detectives (retitled The Three Skrinks), Tonka (retitled A Horse Called Comanche), The Horse Without a Head (about a toy horse), and Toby Tyler (starring Kevin Corcoran). In addition, one original serial was produced, The Mystery of Rustler's Cave, starring Kim Richards and Robbie Rist. Theme days were: Monday: Who, What, Why, Where, When and How Tuesday: Let's Go Wednesday: Surprise Thursday: Discovery Friday: Showtime (at Disneyland, with performers usually at Plaza Gardens)" In Near Fine condition with a square tight spine and binding. Clean and bright both inside and out. One of the rarest Disney books to have come out of the 1970`s, and would make an excellent addition to any Disney collection. Overseas shipping is $42.00 Registered Mail. Additional photos emailed upon request. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Edwards Air Force Base, California dated December 1, 1977. One page and measures 8" X 10 1/2". Condition: Normal mailing folds and staple holes at top left corner. Fine condition. "Dear Mr Valentine We have been notified that the Air Force Systems Command Civic Leader Orientation (7-9 December) has been cancelled. This has been caused by the unavoidable conflicts beyond our control. I very much regret this having occurred and extend apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you. It is hoped that another orientation might later be scheduled and you will be given first consideration for that program. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter. Sincerely (Thomas P. Stafford) Thomas P. Stafford Major General, USAF Commander." W. J. Valentine - Publisher, Antelope Valley Ledger-Gazette, Lancaster, Ca Stafford was selected as an astronaut by NASA in 1962. In December, 1965, he was pilot of Gemini 6 and he and commander Wally Schirra flew the first space rendezvous mission, closing to within a foot of Gemini 7, with astronauts Frank Borman and Jim Lovell aboard. He commanded Gemini 9, with Gene Cernan as pilot, in June, 1966, rendezvousing with an alternate docking target after the Atlas boosting their original Agena target failed. They were unable to dock with the alternate because a protective fiberglass shroud had failed to separate completely, but they flew three different types of rendezvous with it. Stafford commanded the Apollo 10 lunar orbit flight in May 1969, with John Young and Gene Cernan. He and Cernan separated the Lunar Module and approached to within 10 miles of the surface, paving the way for the Apollo 11 crew to make the first moon landing two months later. Stafford logged his fourth space mission as commander of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project in July 1975. He, Deke Slayton, and Vance Brand linked in orbit with a Soyuz carrying cosmonauts Alexei Leonov and Valery Kubasov. Stafford returned to the Air Force and assumed command of the Air Force Flight Test Center in 1975. He was promoted to lieutenant general in 1978 and was assigned as Deputy Chief of Staff, Research Development and Acquisition, Headquarters, USAF, Washington, D.C. He retired from the Air Force in 1979. He co-founded the Technical Consulting Firm of Stafford, Burke, and Hecker, Inc. in Alexandria, Virginia. He sits on the Board of Directors of six corporations listed on the New York Stock Exchange, one listed on the American Exchange, and two others, including Seagate Technology, Inc. Seagate Technology is the largest independent hard disk drive maker in the world. He has served as an advisor to a number of governmental agencies including NASA and the Air Force Systems Command. He was a defense advisor to Ronald Reagan during the presidential campaign and a member of the Reagan transition team. He served on the National Research Council¿s Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board; the Committee on NASA Scientific and Technological Program Reviews and Vice President Quayle¿s Space Policy Advisory Council. He was Chairman of the NASA Advisory Council Task Force on Shuttle-Mir Rendezvous and Docking Missions, is currently Chairman of the NASA Advisory Council Task Force on ISS Operational Readiness, and Co-Chairman of the Stafford-Covey Space Shuttle Return to Flight Task Group.

      Heptangle, Gillette, 1977 - Limited signed edition; this number 381 of 500 copies, hardback, octavo, 111 pp., Decorated green and white cheques on cloth boards. Corners bumped. Antique script style with red, blue and black typography printed by letterpress. Lightly toned page edges. Transparent tissue paper dustwrapper with decoration; some very minor edge and corner wear. Superb copy. This book is compiled from two manuscripts in the British museum. The Sloane MS. 313 is the older, 27 folios, written in Latin and arranged as a missal - that is the prayers and sacred names of God occupy the middle of the manuscript while the directions for their use and other substantive matter is arranged at either end. The work is divided into three parts - Book 1 the Seal of God and the attainment of the Beatific Vision; Book 2 concerns astral angels their offices and their invocation and Book 3; concerning the demonic powers, their offices and their invocation. Of the three divisions of Sloane 313 the third is both incomplete, folio 25 and possibly more is missing, and in the worst state of preservation. The Sworn Book of Honourius is a medieval magician's most valued possession: his book of invocations and words of power. It proports to contain the kernal of magical art, and by this we understand, the bare essantials. Written in the shadow of the inquisition, much is presupposed by the author - that for instance no specifics are given for the consecration of rituals - this book was intended, perhaps, for one apprenticed to a master. A E Waite calls this book a composite - that is containing works of both 'White' and 'Black' magic, though Honourius makes no statement on the metaphysical 'goodness' of the spirits with which he would deal.
