        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume IV, Parts 1, 2 & 3, January 1917 - November 1922

      London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1977. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Fine. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - sixteen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. These three volumes accompany the fourth volume of Churchill's Official Biography and cover January 1917 to November 1922, encompassing Churchill's return to the government after the Dardanelles disaster and his final six years in power as a Liberal, serving at various Cabinet posts in the coalition government of Lloyd George. Here is a full set of the three Volume IV companion volumes, all three the British first edition, only printing. All three volumes are in very good plus condition in fine dust jackets. The red cloth bindings are clean and tight with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. The bindings are slightly marred only by a faint vertical crease on each of the three spines. The contents of all three volumes are bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. The red-stained top edges retain strong, uniform color with absolutely none of the typical sunning. The fore and bottom edges are lightly soiled. There were two prices on the dust jacket flaps - an original introductory price and then a higher price specified after January 31st, 1978. Both prices remain intact on all three dust jackets. There are no losses or tears. The spine lettering of this edition proved incredibly vulnerable to sunning, often fading to nearly white. This set is a treat, with absolutely no fading to the spine printing. Searching for dust jacket flaws, we note only the slightest suggestion of wrinkling at a few spine ends. These dust jackets are about as good as they come. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Note that this large, heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302d.

        VER SACRUM 1898-1903

      New York: Rizzoli, (1977). Small finger smudge on title page, else fine in near fine dust jacket. First edition in English Large, square quarto. 329p. With 412 illustrations, 100 in color. Gilt-titled cloth in colored patterns The Vienna Secession - one of the most important movements in the history of twentieth-century art - chose for its official organ the intriguing name of VER SACRUM, the ancient Roman custom of offering the entire produce of a spring to the gods. In the heroic years that followed their 1897 revolt against the Vienna academy, Gustav Klimt, Kolo Moser, Josef Hoffmann, Otto Wagner and the other painters, architects and craftsmen belonging to the movement contributed to make of VER SACRUM probably the most brilliant publication in the country."

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume IV, Parts 1, 2 & 3

      London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1977. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. These three volumes accompany the fourth volume of Churchill's Official Biography and cover January 1917 to November 1922. All three volumes are fine in very good+ dust jackets. The red cloth bindings are all clean and fresh with bright gilt and good corners. The Part 2 boards have dark vertical striations that are clearly a binding flaw. The contents of all three volumes are crisp, clean, bright, and tight with no spotting and no inscriptions. The red stained top edges retain deep, unfaded red color. The dust jackets are unclipped with only trivial wrinkling at extremities. The Volume IV spine lettering of this edition proved incredibly vulnerable to sunning, often fading to nearly white. This set is better than usual but still affected. The red title lettering at the head of the spines is bright and clear. The Title and author lettering at the center of the spine and the publisher name at the base of the spine are still clearly legible, but a bit faded. The dust jackets are protected in removable mylar covers.

        SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER (w/ working title: "Tribal Rites Of Saturday Night" 152pp Original Mimeographed "First Draft" Screenplay for the 1977 Film

      Los Angeles: Robert Stigwood Organization/ Paramount Studios, 1977. Wexler, Norman. SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. Los Angeles: Robert Stigwood Organization Films, [n. d. but 1977]. Original 152pp Mimeographed Screenplay brad-bound in original RSO Production Company wraps, still bearing the screenplay's working title TRIBAL RITES OF SATURDAY NIGHT. This version is undated and designated "First Draft, Revision #1" without shot numbers or other later shooting script elements. Perhaps the earliest obtainable version of the hard "R" rated script for the John Badham-directed Paramount Studios Disco/John Travolta classic 1977 film with its rock-legendary soundtrack by the Bee Gees. Originally based on a fabricated article by British Journalist Nik Cohn published in New York Magazine in 1976. Although SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER received only a single Oscar nomination (Best Actor, Travolta), the film received that year's Golden Globe for Best Picture and now holds a unique and iconic place of cinema history, a seminal pop-cultural masterpiece, the film which ushered in the modern era of soundtrack-driven dance films. Included with the original screenplay are two original publicity stills of Travolta dancing at the 2001 Odyssey Disco in Brooklyn, New York with original Paramount Studio promo snipes on the reverse. The script is complete and in Very Good condition (light wear, some light stains to the cover), the original promotional photographs are Fine.. Original Manuscript. Original Wraps. Very Good.

        Pokerface

      Los Angeles: Kenmore Press, 1977 First edition, limited issue of the author's first book, signed by Collins on the limitation page. One of 400 numbered copies. Presentation copy, additionally inscribed by the author on the title page: "To Baily / Main Stay - / Billy Collins / Aug 77." Hand bound by Steven and Meryl Chayt in Japanese stab binding with exposed sewing, in the publisher's pictorial gray paper wrappers illustrated with a silkscreen print after an original photograph by Judy Lane. A fine copy, with little to no wear. Pokerface is two-time US poet laureate Billy Collins' first collection of poetry, published only two years after he founded the short-lived New York literary journal The Mid-Atlantic Review with his good friend Michael Shannon. This copy is inscribed to one of the journal's co-editors, Stephen Baily. This limited edition was designed and printed by Steven Chayt. Design was handset in Alternate Gothic, Flash, and Optima. Linotype Optima was set by Economy Typesetting. Although the author did not gain popularity until the early 1990s, Pokerface is classic Collins, with colloquial and accessible, yet often deeply profound poetry that appeals to a wide audience. A Manhattan native who cites New York City as his first artistic inspiration, Collins read his commemorative 9/11 poem "Names" aloud before the U.S. Congress. Around the same time, Collins was dubbed the "most popular poet in America" by Bruce Weber of The New York Times.. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition. Fine. Illus. by Lane, Judy.

        "Let's Reach a New Height." Composition for unaccompanied four-part chorus (SATB). Autograph musical manuscript full score. Complete. Signed and dated by the composer April 14, 2012

      Small folio, ca. 280 x 215 mm. Unbound. 3ff. notated in pencil on one-side of each leaf. 68 measures in total. & & The final state of the manuscript. A note in the composer's hand to the last page carries instructions for the transfer of the score into Finale, the music notation software program. . Commissioned by the New York Virtuoso Singers to celebrate the choir's 25th anniversary, the present work was first performed by them under the direction of the noted choral conductor Harold Rosenbaum at Merkin Concert Hall in New York on October 21, 2012. The text is by the Chinese poet of the Tang dynasty's Kaiyuan era Wang Zhihuan (688-742). & & "... the beauty of Chen Yi's beguiling and animated setting of 'Let's Reach a New Height' comes from the way her music interacts with the vivid verbal imagery, a metaphorical take on a Tang dynasty poem about striving higher in years to come." Anthony Tommasini in a New York Times Review, October 23, 2013& & "Sent to the countryside as a labourer during the Cultural Revolution, she kept her violin with her, entertaining farmers with melodies from ‘revolutionary operas’ condoned by the Gang of Four and practising Western repertory when she was alone. After returning home at the age of 17, she served as leader and composer for the local Beijing opera troupe. She studied composition with Wu Zuqiang and visiting professor Alexander Goehr at the Central Conservatory in Beijing when it reopened in 1977... Her honours have included awards from the Guggenheim, Ford, Rockefeller, Alpert, Fromm and Koussevitzky foundations, and the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. In 2001, she became the second-ever recipient of the Charles Ives Living Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the ASCAP Concert Music Award... Chen’s music combines Western compositional techniques with elements of Chinese musical tradition." Joanna C. Lee in Grove online

        [Original Promo Poster for US Release of NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS...]

      Los Angeles: Warner Bros., 1977. First Edition. Very good. 33" x 24" approx. color poster printed verso only. Folded in sixths, presumably as issued. Some wear at edges. Very good. Original 1977 promotional poster for the US release of the Sex Pistol's only studio album NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS HERE'S THE SEX PISTOLS. Featuring a large B&W image of Rotten with a smaller photo inset of the band and a two line quotation from "No Future" ("We're the flowers in the dustbin..."), the poster lacks the signature Jamie-Reid designed intensity of the Pistols' UK promotional items. Warner Brothers Records signed the Pistols in October 1977 and released BOLLOCKS less than a month later - rushing the album into print in order to capitalize on the various UK Pistols controversies as well as the band's upcoming (and ultimately aborted) US tour. Scarce. Not in Burgess and Parker, but reproduced in Savage's ENGLAND'S DREAMING (see color photo inset).

        The Wind in the Willows

      London: Methuen Children's Books,, 1977. Illustrations by Arthur Rackham. Introduction by A. A. Milne. Octavo (223 × 150 mm). Contemporary green calf by Bayntun, spine gilt in compartments with tools based on the novel's characters, black morocco labels, gilt tool to upper board depicting Mole, Toad, and Mouse, marbled endpapers, double-line rules to boards, turn-ins, and all edges gilt. Colour frontispiece and 11 plates by Arthur Rackham. A few minor scuffs to binding. An excellent copy. A handsomely bound copy of the Rackham edition of Wind in the Willows. Rackham had been asked to illustrate the first edition of the book in 1908, but was already committed to illustrating A Midsummer Night's Dream and turned Grahame down. It was a decision he regretted for much of the rest of his life, until given the opportunity to illustrate the book for the Limited Editions Club in the late 1930s. First published in 1940, his illustrations for this children's classic would be his last, and one of his most loved, sets of illustrations.
