        The Monster in the Turtle's Den

      (N.p.: Michael Mar Press, 1977. Small quarto. (16)ff. One of twelve copies, produced by hand by jewelry designer Michael Dorsa and bookbinder Margaret Rhein. With twelve color illustrations. The text and images were both from an original work written and drawn in 1964 by Mike Dorsa and Tom Warner, age nine. In the story, the turtles Betty and Brickred defeat the deadly monster on Turtle Mountain, which is "said to be 6 feet tall and to shoot poisonrings that make you die for 66 years." After tossing the body in the lake, the turtles and their offspring celebrate with a picnic and fireworks. Corrections to the text have been marked in red pen, adding punctuation and fixing spelling. A delightful work that captures the joy in youthful storytelling. This copy is inscribed in pencil to papermaker Douglas Howell: "The inspiration required to get this project together came from my meeting with you, Douglas Howell. Thank you, Michael Dorsa." Howell was instrumental in the revival of hand papermaking. His paper, which came in a wide variety of styles, weights, colors, and materials, were used by artists and printmakers and displayed in galleries throughout the world. Howell also taught workshops in his studio, and many of his students went on to establish papermaking departments in art schools and universities in the United States and Canada. Very fine, in full brown leather with an illustration of the monster blind-tooled to the upper cover.

He is perhaps best known as Ted Hughes's co-translator of another 20th-century Hungarian poet, János Pilinszky. In 1992 Csokits published Pilinszky Nyugaton (Pilinszky in the West), collecting all of Hughes's letters to him. The entire Csokits-Hughes correspondence is now held by Emory University, Atlanta.

        Song of Solomon

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1977 First edition. Signed by Morrison on the title page. Personal copy of William Styron, with his embossed ownership stamp to a front flyleaf. Publisher's black cloth, lettered in blind and gilt; in the original yellow pictorial dust jacket designed by R. D. Scudellari, lettered in black and maroon with black wing decorations. Fine book; unclipped dust jacket, with just some light sunning to the spine, else fine. A superb copy. This copy of Song of Solomon comes from the library of author William Styron and bears his embossed ownership stamp on a front flyleaf. Both close friends of fellow author James Baldwin, both Styron and Morrison wrote about African American history, identity and culture during the Jim Crow Era in the American South. Song of Solomon is Morrison's third novel and the first novel by an African-American author to be a Book-of-the-Month Club main selection since Richard Wright's Native Son (1940). Specifically, it creates a "magical world out of four generations of black life in America" through the story of Macon "Milkman Dead, Jr. An extremely powerful novel, Song of Solomon soars, as Reynolds Price lauds in his 1977 New York Times review, "on the wide slow wings of human sympathy, well-informed wit and the rare plain power to speak wisdom to other human beings? Few Americans know, and can say, more than [Morrison] has in this wise and spacious novel.". Signed by Author. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        I Siciliani

      Einaudi, 1977. Rilegato tela, sovracoperta (cloth, dust jacket) Testi di Dominique Fernandez e Leonardo Sciascia. Fotografie in bianco e nero di Ferdinando Scianna . 8vo (cm 24x32). pp. XVIII+166. Molto Buono (Very Good). Sovracoperta leggermente sbiadita e screpolata in corrispondenza del dorso (Dj lithgly faded at spine). Prima edizione (First Edition). "Queste fotografie di Scianna che raccontano la Sicilia (la Sicilia com'è per i siciliani, com'è nei siciliani) sono appunto le cristallizzazioni di un lungo processo di conoscenza, e di amore anche, e di odio: perché la Sicilia è sempre, per un siciliano, anche se a diversi livelli di consapevolezza e di equlibrio, come la donna dell'antico poeta: nec sine te, nec tecum vivere possum". E ad accompagnarle, a scrivere un testo che le accompagnasse (non che le spiegasse, poichè ovviamente non hanno bisogno di essere spiegate), mi è parso di non poter fare nulla di meglio che aggiungere altre cristallizzazioni: cristallizzazioni linguistiche, di un lessico particolarissimo, di una particolarissima paremiografia, così come le ritrovo nella memoria, nella "camera oscura" della memoria, e che sono effettualmente gli elementi su cui si fonda una vera conoscenza - e in questo caso la mia conoscenza del paese in cui sono nato, in cui ho passato l'infanzia e la guìiovinezza" (dal testo di Sciascia).\

        Holy the Firm [The Author's Copy]

      NY: Harper & Row. (1977). Annie Dillard's own copy of this small book of poetic meditations, marked by her on nearly two dozen pages (roughly a third of the book). The great majority of the markings serve as a map, as though for a reading, including the instruction "pause." Perhaps two or three instances of editing. Holy the Firm was Dillard's third book, and her intention was to write about whatever happened on Lummi Island, where she was living, during a three-day period. When an airplane crashed on the island on the second day, it caused her to meditate on the problem of pain, and how a just and merciful God would allow natural evil to occur in the world. These meditations on pain, God, and evil continued to resonate throughout her work, particularly in her award-winning volume For the Time Being, published in 1999, more than 20 years after this book. Near fine in a very near fine dust jacket. "Ex Libris Annie Dillard" bookplate on the verso of the half title. A unique copy of one of the volumes that characterizes Dillard's unique place in our literature: Holy the Firm is only 66 pages long but took her 14 months of writing full-time to complete, and it embodies her concerns with philosophy -- in Greek, literally, "the love of wisdom" -- as well as religion, metaphysics, the natural world, and the place of human life and consciousness within and among all of these. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine.

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

      Frank Yablans Presentations / Twentieth Century-Fox, Los Angeles 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 titled 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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
