        The World According to Garp

      New York: E.P. Dutton, 1978. First edition of the author's fourth novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the half title page in a contemporary hand, "For John another world according to a water-method man, John Irving." A warm inscription linking Irving's second and fourth novel, the latter proving to be his breakthrough work. The World According To Garp is a comic and compassionate coming-of-age novel that established John Irving as one of the most imaginative writers of his generation. A worldwide bestseller since its publication in 1978, Irving's classic is filled with stories inside stories about the life of T.S. Garp, novelist and son of Jenny Fields. "There is something of Byron about John Irving. Not only is it that he woke after the publication of The World According To Garp to find himself famous, but the extremity of his opinions and the nervous violence of his language recall that intemperate noleman, and like Byron, he would certainly say that love is no sinecure" (Robertson Davies).

        Presenze

      Venezia: Cavallino, , 1978. Ottimo (Fine). 7 fotografie in bianco e nero originali numerate e firmate a matita sul retro da Pier Paolo Fassetta (cm 40x30). Folio (cm 41x31). pp. 4+7 fotografie. Ottimo (Fine). Prima edizione di 30 es. numerati. Dentro la stanza debole premendo / i muri segnava la luce / mostrava magica la garza / vergine e trasparente / dentro velate presenze / (lenti i movimenti) misuravano / lo spazio filtrando / luce / i gesti abituali i sentimenti cose / significavano / mascherando (agli occhi) la propria / sensibile / origine / esse erano presenze vive / in un tempo impossibile / forme silenziose della memoria / sussurrano immagini trascorrono (P. P. Fassetta: introduzione alla cartella)La fotografia resta per Fassetta uno strumento che costituisce insieme un'esigenza di sperimentazione del mezzo e un veicolo della pittura. Egli però non usa in modo incongruo o pittoricistico questo strumento di rappresentazione, ma lo propone come fenomeno che possiede proprietà analoghe almeno nel senso che la sua articolazione linguistica, pur nella diversità tecnica, comunica primarie istanze della pittura. L'artista concettualizza simili procedimenti e si serve, estendendone il campo, di alcune prerogative fenomeniche ed operative dell'evento figurativo, tanto che egli giunge al riscontro dell'obiettivo fotografico soltanto alla fine della sua ricerca, dell'uso delle energie espansive della sensibilità e del linguaggio, dopo cioè una originale analisi ricondotta sulle componenti percettive del processo messo in causa. (Dal testo critico di Toni Toniato pubblicato nel catalogo della mostra “PROIEZIONI. ARTE NEL VENETO ‘70 – ‘80 ”Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa – Venezia, giugno 1982)

Delany on Disch, Inscribed to Disch. Delany's book-length, microscopic study of Thomas M.

Delany New York 78." "Because of his intellectual audacity, the chillingly distanced mannerism of his narrative art, the austerity of the pleasures he affords, and the fine cruelty of his wit, TMD has been perhaps the most respected, least trusted, most envied and least read of all modern first-rank sf writers" (Encyclopedia of Science Fiction). With an inserted ANS from Michael Moorcock, "Thanks for contract. Will probably be mentioning Delany and might mention The American Shore - but it seems a perfect example of the difference between you. You say a great deal more in 6500 words than he can in a book. V. much enjoyed your TLS piece … Best, Mike" Important association between two prominent American science fiction authors, whose literary criticism has had a profound impact on the genre in ways as utterly divergent as their individual styles.

        Lengthy Autographed Letter Signed to the Akron, Ohio Medical Society

      1978. unbound. 2 pages (front and back) on personal stationery, no place, August 31, 1978. In this letter, Crohn reminisces about how he got started in medicine as an intern for famed physician Emanuel Libman, assisting with autopsies, and his eventual discovery of Crohn's Disease of the Colon, in small part: "...My active scientific approach to medicine occurred as a fluke. Dr. Libman, who was head of the laboratory as well as medicine, wanted to pick an alert intern for the Lab. That is where I learned not only pathology...but bacteriology. Later, on the wards of Mount Sinai I persuaded Dr. Berg, the prominent surgeon, to operate upon patients with symptoms in the right lower quadrant. 'NO, he said, they are all tuberculosis.' But when I said the mass felt like a tumor he relented. Soon I had fourteen such cases and went to New Orleans for the meeting of the American Gastroenterologist Society and read my paper. I was correct - a few year later I presented my findings as a form of Colitis - but the AMA insisted, over my protests, in calling this 'Crohn's Disease.' Fine condition. American gastroenterologist who was the first to discover and describe the disorder that bears his name: Crohn's Disease.

        China for the West: Chinese Porcelain & other Decorative Arts for Export illustrated from the Mottahedeh Collection

      Sotheby Parke Bernet Publications by Philip Wilson Publishers Limited, London, 1978 Book. Fair. Hardcover. 1st Edition. English text; Hardcover (two volumes in buckram with dust jacket in splicase); 25.6 x 35 cm; 5.243 Kg; 704 pages with 103 colour plates and 100 monochrome illustrations; Chips and signs of wear on the slipcase. Chips and tears in the dust jacket. Dust jackets taped. The interior is in good condition, apart from a mark on the bottom of the front free endpaper of volume one, probably due to the removal of an old sticker. Good readable copy.; This century has brought a growing awareness of the vast scale of Chinese export of decorative arts from the seventeenth century onwards. Until very recently however this subject had been very little studied, overshadowed as it was by the ever-widening perspectives of China's ancient past. It was nevertheless through this trade, and especially its ceramic wares, that the unique artistic creativity of the Chinese first became widely known and appreciated. This book aims to provide the most detailed and penetrating analysis yet made of the porcelains produced for Western markets during these centuries examining in its seven hundred pages and as many illustrations (one hundred of them in colour) all their many-sided attractions. The often unusual forms of the porcelain, their decorative styles and traditions, the endlessly varying subjects that they portray - and above all the continuous interchange in such themes between the Chinese manufacturers and decorators and their distant clients in the West, by means of the historic trading companies - all these are studied and interpreted more fully, and tabulated more practically for reference than ever before. The work also examines other export goods - painted enamels, carvings in ivory or soapstone, and reverse paintings on glass, to name only a few - which are represented by notable pieces. The material illustrated here is from one of the greatest collections of expert porcelain: assembled with care over nearly fifty years, it contains much that is rare or unique. Mr. and Ms. Motteheded have collected with clear-sighted purpose from the start, in a way no museum can hope to do so, so that today the wealth of rarities in their collection is matched only by its comprehensiveness, providing an ideal foundation for such a study. The authors are well equipped to write a major work on this subject, John Ayers, Keeper of the Far Eastern Section at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, is a noted authority on Chinese and Japanese ceramics whose numerous writings include four volumes on the Baur Collection (Geneva, 1968-74). David Howard's book Chinese Armorial Porcelain (London, 1974) has given an entirely new emphasis in the study of export porcelain, its design and dating, as well as the social history behind the great East India Companies. With its superb illustrations and analytical, yet highly readable text, this book offers an indispensable new source of information for the student and the collector..

        Eine Liebe in Deutschland

      Bertelsmann, Güterloh - 255 Seiten, Lizenausgabe des Rowohlt Verlags, dort erschienen 1978. . Ein wahre Begebenheit aus Baden. Das Buch erzählt von der Liebe einer deutschen Gemüsefrau und einem polnischen Kriegsgefangenen in einem scheinbar idyllischen badischen Dorf, die sich im Zweiten Weltkrieg ereignet hat. Hier wird die paradoxe Situation deutlich, wonach ein Pole, der ein Verhältnis mit einer Deutschen hatte, aufgehängt wurde, nur weil er Pole war. Andererseits gab es aber auch Fälle in denem solche Polen "eingedeutsch" wurden, und dann völlig straffrei ausgingen. Das Buch zeigt auch das schlechte Gewissen der Einheimischen, die zu keinem Interview bereit waren. Das Buch wurde von Andrzej Wajda verfilmt und auf der Biennale in Venedig 1983 uraufgeführt. Mit Foto-Tafeln aus dem Film. Die äußeren Seiten sind etwas fleckig, sonst guter Zustand. Size: 11,5x19 cm [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Príliš hlucná samota [Too Loud a Solitude]. Original mimeographed filmscript.

      Prague: Film Studio Barrandov 1978 - Quarto (28.2 x 20.2 cm). Original mimeographed wrappers with tan paper spine strip; mimeographed typescript to rectos only; [2], 107 pp. Signed and inscribed by Hrabal on the first page, in 1983. Very good, save for a few nicks to wrappers. With an original signed color photograph showing Hrabal drinking a beer at his favorite pub, the “Golden Tiger” in Prague. An unrecorded filmscript of this acclaimed lyrical novella by Hrabal, who is widely considered the most important Czech author of the last century. While he was strictly speaking not a dissident, some of Hrabal's works were not published until the fall of Communism in 1989, including Too Loud a Solitude, which circulated in samizdat form. The book tells the story of a dim-witted, yet dazzlingly well-read waste-paper compacter, who selectively saves and collects the books he is meant to destroy day by day. Hrabal's writing served as the basis for two films by the Czech New Wave, including Jirí Menzel's Closely Watched Trains (1966), which went on to win an Oscar in 1968. This script, authored jointly by Hrabal and Evald Schorm, was not produced for unknown reasons. Given the potentially subversive content and the novella's ambiguous lyrical tone, however, it is easy to imagine why the censors in Normalization-era Czechoslovakia would have been wary. We are not aware of any other copy of this missing piece of Hrabal's oeuvre; the script is not in KVK, OCLC and not held by the Czech National Library or any other Czech institution.

It was the kind of honesty that people had come to expect from Henry Chinaski/Charles Bukowski" (Cherkovski, p.262).
