        Traces Suspectes en Surface

      West Islip, NY: Universal Limited Art Editions, 1978. First edition. Rauschenberg, Robert. Portfolio with 36 lithographs by Rauschenberg and text by Robbe-Grillet. Printed on specially made Twinrocker paper, with the watermark of the artist's and author's signatures, it comprises 31 pages plus the title page and 4 colophon pages, printed from 37 stones and 27 aluminum plates, numbered [1],1-31, I-IV. 20-1/2 x 26 3/16 inches (52 x 69 cm.) folded. Copy 34 of a total edition of 36, plus 6 A.P. copies (the colophon calls for six, but they are numbered through 7). Signed and dated by Rauschenberg and signed and numbered by Robbe-Grillet on each of the 31 pages, each carries the embossed folio number and publisher's seal. Fine condition in original red cloth clamshell box, designed by the artist, as issued. With two of the original aluminum offset plates on which Robbe-Grillet wrote the text, a set of ten proof pages for the text before illustrations, and a sheet which Robbe-Grillet used for practice, before writing out the manuscript. "Long enamored of French literature and language, Tatyana Grosman attended a lecture by Alain Robbe-Grillet in April 1972. When the writer mentioned Robert Rauschenberg's work, Mrs. Grosman, already aware of stylistic similarities between the two, felt that a collaboration was fated. Two days later, it was underway. During the next four years, Mrs. Grosman sent offset plates to Paris and proofed and translated Robbe-Grillet's text in West Islip; Rauschenberg added images one chapter at a time. The completed pages were sent back to Robbe-Grillet with plates for the next chapter. It soon became clear that Robbe-Grillet was not working in the spirit of sympathetic collaboration but providing a massive text that presented great problems in page design. Rauschenberg responded with images that are much more aloof than in previous books yet responsive to the elegance of the text," Esther Sparks, Universal Limited Art Editions, pp. 447-459.

        Staffrider

      Braamfontein: Ravan Press. 1978. Advance or trial copy of Volume 1, No. 1 of Staffrider, a South African literary journal dedicated to being a popular outlet for writing by and for South Africans of all races and classes, and not just the elite and educated. The title of the journal is taken from "the slang for people hanging outside or on the roof of overcrowded, racially segregated trains," Prints Coetzee's poem "Hero and Bad Mother in Epic." Possibly Coetzee's only published poem. The text block for the magazine is unopened and uncut, currently longer than the covers to which it is laid in, indicating this is an unfinished, unpublished example. This example, which has a date of March 1978 for Volume 1, No. 1, would seem to correct information currently online that the magazine started publishing in 1977. Some foxing to pictorial covers; in all a very good copy, now housed in a folding chemise and slipcase. A special copy of the first issue of an influential South African journal, dating from the apartheid era and part of the movement that eventually ended with the dismantling of apartheid. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Suttree (Uncorrected Proof)

      Random House, New York 1978 - This is the scarce Uncorrected Proof of the McCarthy's novel Suttree. In dark red wraps, publisher label taped on the front cover mentioning "February 1979" as date of publication. Pages white and free of any marks, minimal edgewear or spots of discoloration, slight double impression on front cover, "Suttree - McCarthy (Random)" written in pen on the spine. Suttree was published at the beginning of 1979 in a short print run of 5,000 copies about half of which were sold, the others remaindered. This proof was issued some months before, in the autumn of 1978 and, accordingly to the short fun of the first edition, very few copies were put out mainly for review purposes. It is the earliest format for this title available though known typescripts are early drafts reside in the Witliff Collections at Texas State University. As far as I know, only two copies, including this one, have come to auction in the last thirty five years (no one registered by APBC). A fast survey of seven prominent book dealer catalogs showed just one copy in the past thirty years. The only other copy I could locate was listed at $45 at the end of 1978 in the important catalogue "American Fiction of the 1960's" issued by Peter B. Howard, Serendipity Books owner.

Knowing that he was dying of congestive heart failure and unable to complete "Whistle", Jones discussed the novel with his friend Willie Morris and left copious notes so that he, Morris, could complete the novel after Jones' death. Jones died in 1977, Willie Morris completed the novel for his friend, and the work was published in 1978, telling the story of four wounded South Pacific soldiers brought back to America on a hospital ship and then taken to a Military Hospital in Tennessee where much of the story takes place. In our experience, copies signed by Morris are not at all common. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY WILLIE MORRIS. SCARCE.

        Iran Bastan Museum. Oriental Ceramics The World's Greatest Collections Vol. 4. Introduction Firouz Bagherzadeh.

      Tokyo: Kodansha, 1978.. 317 S. Mit zahlr. auch farb. Abb. Originalleinen in Leinenfaltschachtel.. Aus der Bibliothek von Prof. Dr. Wolfram Kleiss, langjährigem Leiter der Außenstelle Teheran des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts. Nr 145/300 Exemplaren. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - Text auch englisch. - The Museum of Ancient Iran or Iran-e Bastan was designed by French architect Andre Godard in the early 20th century. It has a built area of approximately 11000 square meters. Began in 1935 and completed within two years by Abbas Ali Memar and Morad Tabrizi, the museum building was officially inaugurated in 1937. The second building, Museum of the Islamic Era, built on the grassy grounds of the old one, went through quite a few and hasty changes of the interior, and was still being remodeled when the Revolution of 1979 swept the country. While the old building always had a clear mandate to show archaeological relics (to also include some rare medieval textiles and rug pieces), the new building began its life by featuring the exquisite Amlash pottery from the prehistoric Caspian Sea regions of Iran. This was followed by some modern arts, and the repeated gutting and remodeling of the interior.
