        Orkestr [Orchestra]. Samizdat edition

      Moscow: self-published, 1978. Fifty-three unbound leaves of carbon copy typescript to rectos, onion skin paper (30 × 20.5 cm), with title and foreign words filled in by hand (by the author or typist). Very good. Samizdat edition of the second collection of poems by Elena Shvarts (1948-2010), one of the key figures of the Leningrad unofficial literary scene. Intensely spiritual and stylistically unorthodox, Shvarts's poetry could not be published in Russia until Perestroika. In addition to illicitly reproduced samizdat copies, it appeared in various émigré publications in Paris and the American "Ardis" publisher. Increasingly, Shvarts's work is being studied not just in Russia, but by Western scholars; a recent article characterizes her writing thus: "The world of the unseen, with its spirits and demons, takes on nearly tangible form in the verse of the St. Petersburg poet Elena Shvarts. In visions both playful and somber, Shvarts conveys a spirituality that derives from intense exploration of the self" (Goldstein 2015, 239). Parts of the present collection were first published in the Leningrad samizdat journal Chasy (The Hours), while others appeared here first. The indication of Moscow as the origin of this samizdat copy may have been a ruse. Apart from contributions in the samizdat journals Chasy and Obvodnyi kanal, KVK and OCLC show no Shvarts samizdat titles.

        Max The Mouse who Made the Met

      - This is an early home-made book by an eighteen year old (or 17) Tom Yakutis, who went on to a highly successful career as an animator. His later credits include Popeye (1978 - 1981), Challenge of the SuperFriends, and many stints as director, designer, or artist on episodes of such beloved cartoons as the Jetsens, the Flintstones, etc. He began his career at Disney and worked at many of the major animation studios subsequently, including Hanna and Barbera, Warner Brothers, etc. Already in this illustrated manuscript we can see the polish of his renderings, with the mice and human characters endowed with real expressiveness. The short text is not really commensurate with the quality of the illustrations, and from the many misspellings we might wonder whether Mr. Yakutis was dyslexic. The story flows crudely, but thankfully, the drawings delight and more than compensate. The setting of this mouse tale at the Met is also interesting. There is an element of humor in the tiny creature living in so grand a place, and then upending it. At the time the Met loomed larger in the American landscape as a temple of high culture, and it was a time when top singers there had a presence in popular culture as well, with singers such as Rise Stevens, Laurence Tibbett, Lily Pons, Jamila Novotna, etc. enjoying significant movie careers in popular movies.

        Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York - SIGNED and dedicated by Dahl in blue felt pen directly to the front end paper (not a bookplate or card pasted in) PLUS a hand typed SIGNED letter on his Gypsy House headed paper, dated Oct 1978. I am unsure of the exact version of the book this is, possibly 3rd state? As it has 4 lines in the colophon on the final page; the boards are cream with a chocolate brown cloth spine and green endpapers. However the Oompa-lumpas are still African unlike the later versions. An inscription on the end paper has been rubbed out but is still just visible. I have collected Dahl books for years (many are signed) and I am now selling them all.

"Enthusiasm for Howard Hodgkin among art critics, historians, art collectors, and the general public has never been greater. He stands confirmed as a Master of the hesitant, truant nature of life and emotion, an artist whose great achievement is to have created equivalents in art for the textures of memory itself" (Publisher's blurb). "Our greatest colorist since Matisse" (Susan Sontag). An absolute "must-have" work of art for Howard Hodgkin collectors. This "Alexander Street" original lithograph is Number 67/90, very neatly and discreetly indicated as such in pencil on recto (lower left), and very neatly, discreetly, and beautifully signed and dated in pencil on recto (lower center) by the artist: "Hodgkin 78".

A rare editioned and signed print thus. 1 original lithograph. The greatest British abstract artist of our time. A fine collectible print. (SEE ALSO OTHER HOWARD HODGKIN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
