      Winter's Calif.: Robert Dennis Crumb, 1977 Crumb, Robert [Spiegelman, Alessandrini, Mason]. SMALL BUT SIGNIFICANT ARCHIVE REGARDING THE TRANSLATION OF THE "CRUMB" BIOGRAPHY. In the late 1970's Montreal writer & comic book collector, William J. Mason spent several years working on a translation of one of the earliest biographies of the pre-eminent underground comic artist, Robert Crumb originally written in France by Marjorie Alessandrini. Mason spent several years on the project, had the approvals of Alessandrini & the support of Crumb but the project never materialized. What we have here is a fine small archive of Crumb letters related to the undertaking containing wonderful content. The file consists of three important letters [5 tight pages] to Bill Mason, the translator of the French biography called CRUMB, including his copy of CRUMB [in very good condition with his notes scattered throughout] with Mason's ownership signature dated 1977, along with a lengthy Maus postcard addressed to Mason from Art Spiegelman / Maus, June '79, concerning Crumb, along with a fine 2 page letter from Marjorie Alessandrini, dated Paris, April 24th 1979, to Bill Mason dealing with her recommendations for publishing contacts for CRUMB in the US, including comments about Masons fine translation and her delight with Crumbs approval of the work in progress. 1 - [Crumb, Robert] Art Spiegelman / Maus. APS, June 1979, on Spiegelman's own illustrated postcard, in fine condition. Spiegelman talks about a possible visit to Montreal in August & thanks Mason for the articles and the translation of the Crumb piece which he found "interesting" "(Crumb's America" far more so). . . I read the entire Tales From The Crypt books recently. A[nd] thought they represented an (unconscious) America. Jewish postwar response to the holocaust. The flip-side of Weird Science's preoccupation with Hiroshima and the Cold War. Do you see that too - or should I elaborate. Oh well back to Maus. All the best / Art. regards from F. [with Maus illustrated]. Superb example. with 2 - Crumb, Robert. Als to Bill Mason [Winters Calif.],dated Sept. 4th 1978. 1 lengthy page in Crumb's neat small hand. In part - "Dear Mr. Mason / Thank you for sending me the translation of M. Alessandrini's book about me. . . I'm overwhelmed . . . / Needless to say, I was completely absorbed and fascinated by her analysis of me . . .to see how she interpreted and intellectualized my crazy comics. / this is the first really heavy Freudian-type of criticism I've ever read of my sex stuff. . . with 3 - Crumb, Robert. Als to Bill Mason [Winters Calif.],dated Dec 6th 1978. 1 compact page in Crumb's neat small hand. In part - " Bill / Thanks very much for the latest chapter of the "Allessanrini Nails Crumb" series. . . it's very embarrassing but intensely fascinating. . . it's always delicious to read about yourself, and the more probing, the better. . . it's narcissistic. . . with 4 - A particularly informative & interesting lengthy biographical & historical letter that is unique in content. Crumb, Robert. Als to Bill Mason [Winters Calif.],dated August 11th, 1979. Very lengthy 3 page letter in Crumb's neat small hand about the chapters sent to him, adding his own comments & corrections. In part - " . . . I: 2/ Underground comics & the counterculture: Page 11: She says 'Crumb's frustration . . . led him to become the first artist to publish a comic book using the methods of the underground press'. This is incorrect. I was preceded by at least two others, maybe more, Jack Jackson published 'God Nose' in Texas around 1965, or possibly even '63. Joel Beck published several comic books in 1965 & '66 in /San Francisco. 'ZAP' was, I suppose the first really successful underground comic." / Page 14: 'Cunt' Comics - it was mostly a solo book by Rory Hayes but it contains one page by Jay Lynch and one by Kim Deitch. I doubt the story about most of the print run being destroyed. . . / Actually, the last and the filthiest of the little dirty books was "FELCH". . . so filthy that I had trouble thinking of ideas for it. I contributed only one page. / . . . Page 1: she says my family were "Devout Catholics". My father was an "Atheist"; My mother was a church-goer but not devout. . . but still they sent us all to a strict Catholic school. My father's reasoning was that Catholic schools had better discipline" / Page 4 & 5: she says none of the Fanzines "ever exceeded a print run of 100 copies. "FOO" had a print run of 300 copies. . . Crumb goes on to clear facts about fanzines "WILD" & "PRO-JUNIOR", also the history of his brother, Charles’s characters, "SUPER BUNNY, & "FUZZYTHE BUNNY" created in 1949. SUPER BUNNNY IN 1953. " FRITZ made his first appearance on the cover of "CRUMB BROTHERS ALMANAC". . . 1959, actually FRITZ first appeared in a story I drew in a notebook. . . / Page 4: Her analysis of my attitude towards black people misses one important point, I think. and that is that I often used the stereo-type "coon" image in my comics, in the late 'sixties especially to satirize that stereo-type on one level, but also to convey an image of funkiness and spontaneity that had nothing to do with REAL black people. . . my fault was in not realizing that people would take these cartoons literally. " Robert Dennis Crumb was born in 1943. He was founder of the Underground Comix movement & is regarded as its most prominent figure. Crumb's entire career has unfolded outside the mainstream comic book publishing industry. Along with ZAP, one of his most recognized works is the "Keep on Truckin'" comic, which became a widely distributed fixture of pop culture in the 1970s. Others are the characters Devil Girl, Fritz the Cat, and Mr. Natural. He's most recognized for his distinctive style of drawings & his critical, satirical, subversive view of the American mainstream. In the early 1980s, Crumb collaborated with writer Charles Bukowski on a series of comic books, featuring Crumb's art and Bukowski's writing. He was inducted into the comic book industry's Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1991. . Signed by Author(s). First Edition. Illus. by R. Crumb.

        Animal House (Original Screenplay, signed by director John Landis)

      Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1977. Revised Second Draft Screenplay for the 1978 film. INSCRIBED by Landis on the title page: "John Landis / (not one of the writers!)."& & National Lampoon was a huge success as an alternative magazine in the early 1970s, and irrevocably altered its future with the production of this film in 1978, which was an irreverent, sharp (and now classic) film comedy. A production company was launched, producing over half a dozen films between 1978-2002, and as a result today's generation associates "National Lampoon" almost completely with its films rather than its pulp origins. And importantly, this was the film that catapulted Harold Ramis and John Belushi from television into the movies, where they would both flourish. Nominated by the Writer's Guild of America for Best Comedy Screenplay in 1979. & & Gray studio wrappers, noted as 2ND REVISED SECOND DRAFT SCREENPLAY on the front wrapper and dated June 17, 1977 (over a year prior to the film's release in July 1978). Title page present, with credits for screenwriters Ramis, Kenney, and Miller. 131 leaves, mechanically reproduced, eye-rest green stock. Pages and wrapper Near Fine bound with three gold brads. & & National Film Registry.

        Dispatches [Rare Inscribed Copy]

      NY: Knopf. 1977. Herr, reporting for Rolling Stone and Esquire from Vietnam, was -- along with such now-legendary figures as Tim Page, Sean Flynn and Dana Stone -- one of the young writers who brought the 1960s counterculture and the New Journalism to war reporting, describing Vietnam as the "first rock-and-roll war" and influencing the way future generations would see the conflict -- mostly by writing his reports largely from the perspective of the foot soldiers in the war rather than that of the strategists and commanders. Herr's dispatches were eagerly awaited at the time, and are now viewed as classics of war reporting. They helped shatter the official picture of an orderly progression to the war and define the "credibility gap" that made Vietnam war reporting so different from that of earlier conflicts. This copy is inscribed by the author "with regards and best wishes." Fine in a fine dust jacket. One of the small handful of classics of Vietnam War literature -- considered by many the best nonfiction work to come out of the war -- and a book that is almost never found signed or inscribed; this is only the second signed copy we've seen since the book was new. . First Edition. Hardcover.
