Jon Savage and Linder published the art fanzine "The Secret Public" in Manchester during the first month of 1978. It was the second New Hormones product - catalogue number ORG 2 after the Buzzcocks' already iconic "Spiral Scratch" - and was distributed through Rough Trade and other independent outlets. This was followed by the portfolio "Mixed Media Montages" published in late 1978. Some of these images originally appeared as flyers and as posters for the Buzzcocks, Joy Division, Magazine and Factory Records circa 1977-1980". This luxe publication reproduces in a far more elegant format the twelve original photo collages from the 1978 original as full page silkscreens, each numbered in the lower right-hand margin and SIGNED in pencil by Jon Savage on the six images of his own artwork, as issued. A pristine example numbered 32/40.

Now housed in a custom clamshell box of red matte with embossed lettering on the front echoing the lettering on the dust jacket, gilt lettering on spine of box, black cloth edges and black suede interior, all of which makes for a striking presentation. *** CONDITION: Book is near fine with a square, solid text block and strong hinges, the corners are sharp, minimal rubbing to the spine. Unclipped dust jacket shows some edgewear particularly to the head and tail of the spine, and a couple of small, one-quarter inch tears where the left panel meets the front, and where the back panel meets the spine, vintage bookstore label on right flap, not obstructing any text. *** CITATION: Firsts Magazine Oct. 11, number 5; Fear Itself 9.

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume IV, Parts 1, 2 & 3, January 1917 - November 1922

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1978. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - sixteen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. These three volumes accompany the fourth volume of Churchill's Official Biography and cover January 1917 to November 1922, encompassing Churchill's return to the government after the Dardanelles disaster and his final six years in power as a Liberal, serving at various Cabinet posts in the coalition government of Lloyd George. This is the elusive U.S. first edition, only printing, which is far more scarce than its British counterpart. This is a full set of all three Volume IV companions, near-fine in very good dust jackets. The British first editions were bound in solid red cloth. These U.S. editions were more elaborately bound, with tan linen spines over dark red buckram boards with red spine title blocks printed in black and gilt. The bindings also feature head and foot bands and dark blue ruled transitions at the border between the tan linen and red buckram. Here the bindings are clean, bright, tight, and square. The only exterior flaws we find are bumps at the Part 3 lower corners and upper spine. The contents are crisp, clean, and bright. No spotting. No previous ownership marks. We note a hint of soiling to the top edges and that the lower portion of pages 1637-1640 of Part 3 were not fully trimmed by the binder. All three dust jackets are unclipped, still bearing the original price on the upper front flap. All three jackets are also complete, with no losses or tears. The spine lettering of this edition proved incredibly vulnerable to sunning, often fading to nearly white. This set is an exception, featuring bright, entirely unfaded spine printing. Unfortunately, the spines are toned and soiled, most significantly on the Part 3 dust jacket. The blank rear faces show lighter soiling with the front faces remaining clean and bright. The only signs of jacket wear are slight wrinkling at a few spine ends. The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Note that this large, heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302d.

A devastating flu escapes from its containment in a military biowarfare lab, killing most of the population of the United States, and by implication, the world.

The survivors who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge--Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious "Dark Man," who delights in chaos and violence. 5 3/4" x 8 1/2" x 2 1/4" design. 823 pages.
