        Papyrus Ani BM 10.470. Vollständige Faksimilie-Ausgabe im Originalformat des Totenbuches aus dem Besitz des British Museum. Codices selecti phototypice impressi.

      Graz: Adeva, 1978.. Nach dem Orignal London, British Museum, Nr. 10.470. 37 Tafeln ca. 50 x 100 cm in Leinenkassette mit integrierten Aufsteller. 83 S. Kommentar, broschiert. Notiz auf Titel des Kommentars, ebenfalls Privatsammlungstempel und Signatur auf hinterem Vorsatzdeckel. Eine Tafel mit Abriebschäden auf der Rückseite (war wohl mal aufgeklebt). - Unter der Signatur 10.470 bewahrt das British Museum in London eines der wichtigsten ägyptischen Totenbücher - den Papyrus Ani. Die in Theben gefundene Handschrift stammt vermutlich aus der frühen 19. Dynastie, wurde also gegen 1300 v. Chr. für Ani, einen hohen Beamten der Tempelverwaltung, geschrieben. Die Ausbildung dieses Typus geht auf die Mitte des 16. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. zurück. In dieser Zeit begann man das durch Jahrtausende mündlich tradierte und auch aus den Pyramidentexten übernommene Spruchgut auf Papyrusrollen zu schreiben und diese dem Toten in den Sarg mitzugeben. Das Totenbuch enthält eine Sammlung magischer Sprüche, die dem Verstorbenen zur Wiederbelebung verhelfen und vor den Bedrohungen im Jenseits schützen sollten. Im Papyrus Ani wird in einem zusammenhängenden Komplex der Tote in die ägyptische Götterwelt eingeführt. Große Bedeutung kommt dabei dem Jenseitsgericht zu. Ani wird gerechtfertigt, erhält ein rituelles Begräbnis und wird dadurch wiederbelebt. Anschließend wird er in die Gesetze des Kosmos eingeweiht und in die Göttergemeinschaft aufgenommen. Magisch genauso wirksam wie die kleinen Bilder des Textes sind die großen der Vignetten. Diese farbig ausgeführten Zeichnungen begleiten die einzelnen Textpassagen und illustrieren deren Aussagen in einer starken Symbolsprache.

        "Dorade"

      1978. Mixed media on blue composition board. Signed "Arbib 73" or "Arbib 78" A Richard Arbib personal luxury car, modelled on the Cadillac Eldorado It's not clear whether the written date on this piece is 73 or 78, but it is definitely by Richard Arbib and definitely in keeping with the look of the 1970's Cadillac Eldorados. In the license plate spot, he has written "Dorade" and there are two shields very similar in shape to the Cadillac emblem. The Dorade is a Mediterranean Bass, the Dorado is a much larger fish known also as the dolphinfish and mahi-mahi. Eldorado however comes from El Dorado, the mythical City of Gold, thought by the conquistadors to exist in South America. Arbib's "Dorade" has nice lines and unusual features. The car is a large two door coupe with a huge hatchback type back window that extends over the trunk. The back lights are recessed into new style fins that extend backwards but not above the plane of the trunk. There are stylized sun roofs above driver and passenger. There are two views given, one from the side and one from the back.

        Lyric Sheets for 'Wrong Side of the Road' On the Tropicana Letterhead

      Los Angeles, 1978. 3 hand-written pages on 2 pages of Tropicana Motor Hotel letterhead stationary. Partial lyrics for 'Wrong Side of the Road,' from the 1978 release 'Blue Valentine.' Written in Wait's hand, originally in blue ball point, with later corrections and amendations in black. In generally near fine condition, showing some slight wear but trivial. Beyond what can be seen performing on the stage, the great creative force that is Tom Waits offers the public little of itself; interviews and discussion of his process and his approach to songwriting are few and far between. Here is a brief, tantalizing glimpse into what and how he did what he did, during the time many think of as his early, great and fully realized period of songwriting, from 1977 through 1980. It is no small bonus that this evidence comes on the letterhead of the Tropicana—or, if you will, the legendary Tropicana. Impossibly, ridiculously scarce, quite likely the only such holographic material from Waits currently available---we haven?'t seen anything like it, ever, and we?'ve been looking.

        Animal House (Original screenplay for the 1978 film)

      Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1978. Revised Final Draft script for the 1978 film. Copy belonging to actor Mike Maitland, an uncredited cast member on the film, with his name in holograph ink on the front wrapper. 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. Yellow studio wrappers, noted as REVISED FINAL DRAFT on the front wrapper, dated October 12, 1977, signed by Mike Maitland. Title page present, with credits for screenwriters Miller, Ramis and Kenney. 127 leaves, mimeograph. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Near Fine, bound with three gold brads. In a custom quarter leather clamshell box. Full collation available upon request.

        Souvenirs du Triangle d'Or (First Edition, inscribed to William Van Wert)

      Paris: Les Éditions de Minuit, 1978. First Edition. First Edition. INSCRIBED in blue ink to novelist and film theorist William F. Van Wert: "pour Bill Van Wert/mon amical souvenir/Robbe-Grillet." The star of the Minuit logo on the front panel is hand-colored in the same ink, presumably by Robbe-Grillet. Text in French. Van Wert corresponded with Robbe-Grillet during his dissertation "The Theory and Practice of the Ciné-Roman" (Arno Press, 1978)." After the Nouveau Roman movement dissolved, its most prominent author and theorist, Alain Robbe-Grillet, experimented further with the novel's structure, incorporating his experience as a filmmaker, and by the late 1970s was making intertextual "Collage Novels" integrating works he completed in collaboration with artists such as René Magritte, Jasper Johns, and Irina Ionesco. "Souvenirs du Triangle d'Or" was later translated by J. A. Underwood and published by Grove Press in 1984 as "Recollections of the Golden Triangle." Very Good plus in wrappers. Wrappers very lightly soiled, light foxing at the spine, rear panel scuffed with a single corner crease, slight spine lean. Halfaya.org: John Leo, "Alain Robbe-Grillet Bibliography."
