        [Screenplay]: The Victim's Tuxedo: Screenplay based on the short story The Corpse Next Door by Cornell Woolrich

      New York: Silver Screen Productions. 1978. Screenplay. Quarto. 77 pages, one page laid in. Bradbound in orange Studio Duplicating Service wrapper. A couple of ink changes in the text, wrappers a little soiled, a very good copy. Laid in is one page photocopied from the screenplay with an ink change, and a note to call a New York literary agent on the verso. A "neo-noir" treatment of the Woolrich story, the film was eventually made in 1980 as Union City, directed by Reichert (a.k.a. Marcus Reichert), as a vehicle for singer Debbie Harry, of the rock group Blondie. An interesting film that didn't achieve the desired effect of catapulting Harry to film stardom, though she continues to appear in films from time to time. .

        Untitled (Diptych from the series 40 Sockel [40 Pedestals]).

      ., . 1978 - Diptych drawing from the series of 80 "40 Sockel" drawings. One sheet is pencil and grey gouache on coffee-stained paper, and the other sheet is red marker on white paper. The geometrical shape depicted on the first sheet aligns with the linear segments on the second sheet. From F.E. Walther's exhibition "40 Sockel", Kunstraum Munich, 1982. Verso of each drawing is signed and numbered 25. Very good condition. Each: 11.75 x 8.25". "Each individual piece of 40 Pedestals has been fabricated in wood and then carefully covered with a greenish monochrome cotton fabric. They are always combined in a way that they define a different space by differing forms, different angles by differing combinations, different fields by differing extensions, reminding us of an immanent logic which has never been so radically expressed since the late 1910's and early 1920's in central and eastern Europe. It represents, as most other works by F.E. Walther, too, a decisively fabricated discourse on the social practice of two subjects: The creating and the responding." Reference: p. 66 Franz Erhard Walther. 40 Sockel. Schritte seitwärts. Kunstraum München, Munich, Germany. 1982; pp. 6, 12 Franz Erhard Walther. Works 1963 - 86. John Weber Gallery, New York, NY. nd.

Bernard L. Ross is a pseudonym for Ken Follet, author of The Pillars of the Earth. A seemingly scarce book, Capricorn One is a novelistation of Peter Hyams' script for the film of the same name. The book is a thriller based on a fictitious account of a Mars landing hoax; the moon landing being popular with conspiracy theorists then (and now). The book is one of Follett's scarcer titles, most bibliographies record the more common futura publication, five copies on COPAC. The book is perhaps best known in the world of book collecting due to it being advertised on the rear of Douglas Adams' Hitch Hiker's Guide. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        PHOTOGRAM

      New York: Asylum Press, 1978. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. Oblong 4to. Spiral bound pictorial wraps. Very good. Mild rubbing with a few faint spots of soil. Offsetting shadow to rear cover. About one-third of the plastic teeth of the comb binding perished, as common. INSCRIBED by Laufer to Jackson Mac Low to title page: "Á Jackson -- / Susan Bee / 9/18/81." [10]pp. Bee's first artist’s book, published by her and husband Charles Bernstein's Asylum Press. A short series of photographs created by the artist without the use of a camera (usually by exposing ob- jects directly onto light-sensitive paper), PHOTOGRAM was heavily influenced by the works of Man Ray and László Moholy-Nagy, about whom Bee wrote both her a dissertation and an essay entitled "Pho- tograms" for 1984's THE L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E BOOK (edited by Bruce An- drews and Bernstein). An exceptional association and a genuinely uncommon book. The plastic comb in our experience has a tendency (as in this copy) to become brittle, and although the edition size was a respectable 300, we suspect many perished with the fragile binding. Inscribed by Bee to poet and Fluxus artist Jackson Mac Low. Bee's artist’s books are in the collections of The British Library, Yale, the Library of Congress, Princeton, Harvard, the Sackner Collection at the University of Miami, Stanford Univer- sity, Ohio State, Wesleyan, and Brown, among many other museums and special collections. OCLC locates 13 copies, though none at any of the aforementioned institutions.
