        In Patagonia

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1977. First edition of the author's masterpiece and one of the great travel books of the last half of the twentieth century. Octavo. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the title page. A very nice copy. An exhilarating look at a place that still retains the exotic mystery of a far-off, unseen land, Bruce Chatwin's exquisite account of his journey through Patagonia teems with evocative descriptions, remarkable bits of history, and unforgettable anecdotes. Fueled by an unmistakable lust for life and adventure and a singular gift for storytelling, Chatwin treks through "the uttermost part of the earth"— that stretch of land at the southern tip of South America, where bandits were once made welcome—in search of almost forgotten legends, the descendants of Welsh immigrants, and the log cabin built by Butch Cassidy. An instant classic upon publication in 1977, In Patagonia is a masterpiece that has cast a long shadow upon the literary world. "A travel book to stand on the shelf with Graham Greene, Somerset Maugham, and Paul Theroux." (The New York Times Book Review).

        Aura

      West Burke, VT: Janus Press, 1977. Folio portfolio. One of fifty copies. This copy is press-numbered and bears an additional inscription by Claire Van Vliet to a well-known American collector. Carruth’s poem “describes the light and space created by the evening sun on a Vermont mountain landscape at dusk.” The double-sided, foldout paperwork by Van Vliet and Kathryn and Howard Clark of Twinrocker Handmade Paper Mill “creates the same atmosphere” as the poem. Opening the paper fold by fold, “the sensation of walking at sunset up to the crest of a Vermont hill and suddenly viewing the wide horizon” is captured. The October 1977 issue of Fine Print describes in detail the making of this beautiful and colorful paperwork, the first of its kind in book form. Aura has become the scarcest and most sought after of all Janus Press printings. This is a mint copy in linen clamshell box with handmade paper label.

        A MORBID TASTE FOR BONES (Inscribed By the Author in 1982 for Shrewsbury Abbey Charity Appeal)

      New York: Morrow, 1977. Peters, Ellis [Edith Pargeter]. A MORBID TASTE FOR BONES. NY: Morrow, (1977). First Edition (so stated). A FINE copy in a FINE priced dust jacket. REMARKABLE PRESENTATION COPY. In 1982, Edith Pargeter signed this copy while sitting in the Abbey Church in Shrewsbury, home of her fictional historical detective Brother Cadfael. Her American publishers, Morrow, had heard of the appeal in aid of the church and sent 20 copies to the Abbey to be signed by her on March 24th, 1982. The inscription reads: "Abbey 900/Shrewsbury/Edith Pargeter/'Ellis Peters.'" This particular copy was presented to the Abbey's vicar, Ralph Lumley (bookplate, front paste-down) who can be seen in a clipping pasted to the front-free endpaper holding this very book. Here's a quote from the recipient's obituary: "Prebendary Ralph Lumley (1913-1996) was for more than a quarter of a century vicar of Shrewsbury Abbey, the setting for the popular historical novels by Ellis Peters (the nom de plume of Edith Pargeter). Knowing something of her earlier works, Lumley invited the author to give an evening of poetry and prose readings to mark the abbey's 900th anniversary in 1982. The ensuing friendship had an important influence on Pargeter. She has continued to do her own historical research, including that for the Brother Cadfael mysteries; but it was Lumley who helped Pargeter to realize and develop the religious nature of her books." It's hard to imagine a better Brother Cadfael presentation copy making this perhaps "THE" copy of the entire 21-book Brother Cadfael series.. Signed. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine.

        The Animal Factory (Signed)

      New York: Viking Press, 1977. First edition / First printing.. Hardcover.. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket.. Octavo. A common theme in ex-con Eddie Bunker's writing centers on men being pulled into crime at a very young age and the subsequent hardening of their character through early adulthood by a callous and uncaring society. "The Animal Factory" is a prison novel that delves deep into San Quentin State Prison society, a world of violence and paranoia, where territory and status are ever-changing and possibly fatal commodities. Crime fiction came natural for Bunker and it was during his last internment, in 1975, that he discovered his writer's voice and penned "No Beast So Fierce." It debuted to critical acclaim and was turned into the 1978 film, "Straight Time" starring Dustin Hoffman. ~Adapted for film in 2000 by John Steppling and Bunker, "The Animal Factory" tops a long list of prison movies for its realistic portrayal of the subculture that runs throughout prison life. Directed by and co-starring Steve Buscemi, the film also stars Edward Furlong, Williem Dafoe, and Mickey Rourke. As an actor, Bunker performed in more than 20 films, but it was writing that he truly loved (having also penned the screenplay for cult-classic film, "Runaway Train" in 1985. Novelist, screenwriter, actor, ex-con, Bunker died July 26, 2005 at the age of 71. ~SIGNED and inscribed on the half-title page by the author: "To Tony B. A good dude. Eddie Bunker." A near fine copy with a slight slant to spine, and light foxing to page-block, in a near fine jacket with edge-wear to foot of spine and a short closed tear to head of spine, barely noticeable.

        ON PHOTOGRAPHY

      New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1977. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1977. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 207 pages. The author&#39;s third collection of essays. One of the greatest books of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents six brilliant and challenging essays on photography that represent the fullest expression of Susan Sontag&#39;s lifelong attempt to find both the common ground and the dividing line between ethics and aesthetics. Her "moralist/aesthete" dual sensibility prevents Sontag from rejecting photography outright (because it can be singularly beautiful and useful). But she could not embrace it wholeheartedly either (because it is usually facile and not serious enough). Her insight about "photographic seeing" is an Arnoldian criticism of modern life itself (as shallow, narcissistic, and mindless). Such ambivalence about the subject at hand would have been a dead-end for most other writers, but photography engaged Sontag as it has no other writer in the Western tradition: She devoted the better part of seven years to write these six essays. Her sustained examination of photography as a source of knowledge, as an instrument of conscience, as a work of art, and as a uniquely evocative trace of reality (rather than a mimetic representation of it) remains sensational and will not be surpassed. There are a handful of books on photography that will endure. There are only two that are great: Susan Sontag&#39;s "On Photography" and Roland Barthes&#39; "Camera Lucida" (1981), the most profoundly personal account ever written on the subject. Barthes owes nothing less than the framework of his book to "On Photography" (he merely recapitulates or takes many things for granted because Sontag has already articulated them). Sontag eventually re-examined some of her own views in her last book, a sequel aptly titled "Regarding The Pain of Others", in light of extreme circumstances, especially 9/11 and the War on Terror. An absolute "must-have" title for Susan Sontag collectors. <B><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue pen on the front free endpaper by Susan Sontag. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Most copies available online have major flaws or are subsequent printings. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant, the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1977 for "On Photography", the National Book Award in 2000 for "In America", and the Jerusalem Prize in 2001. Shimon Peres, in awarding the Jerusalem Prize, described Sontag as "one of the world&#39;s finest writers and greatest minds". One of the most influential and important American writer-intellectuals of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SUSAN SONTAG TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374226261.
