        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.

        Mabuhay Gardens Archive

      [San Francisco: Mabuhay Gardens, 1978 - 1980s]. Contents in near fine to fine condition, housed in nine binders of various sizes.. Archive of flyers from the seminal San Francisco punk venue Mabuhay Gardens. Compiled by the nightclub's legendary booking and promotional agent Dirk Dirksen, the collection includes 27 tickets and 669 flyers of varying dimensions that advertise concerts, film showings, theatrical performances, and art shows. Opened in 1976 by Ness Aquino on a downtown street notorious for its strip clubs, the "Fab Mab" quickly became a centerpiece of the growing Bay Area punk scene. Dirksen, a seasoned rock promoter and television producer, was recruited to book punk and new wave bands and emcee shows, famously berating his audiences and band members during his abrasive interludes and introductions. The venue's rotating roster featured a variety of performances by prominent West Coast bands as well early concerts by national acts. This archive includes flyers for Black Flag, Blondie, Crime, The Dead Kennedys, The Dils, Germs, The Jim Carroll Group, The Mutants, Nico, The Offs, The Selecter, and Social Unrest, among many other bands. Various flyers have notes, phone numbers, and song lyrics written in pen on the versos. An exemplary document of the DIY aesthetic in graphics, the archive includes work by Raymond Pettibon, Roger I. Reyes, and James Stark, as well as photographs, collages, and designs by numerous uncredited artists. An unprecedented survey of an important and transformative era in punk culture, scrupulously compiled and maintained by the self-proclaimed "pope of punk.

      Double R Books, Orange, Calif 1978 - First edition. Compiled by Marcy Blaustein. Photographs by Donna Santisi. Comb-bound at the top in photographic wrappers. 60 individually numbered photos printed rectos only. Slight rubbing, just about fine. Curiously, there is a rubberstamped number ("188") on the rear wrap, whether indicating a limitation, a price, or whatever else, we have not determined. Wonderful and rare compilation of band photos centered around L.A. Punk venues. Artists include Patti Smith (to whom the book is dedicated), Lenny Kaye, Elvis Costello, The Mumps, Screamers, Tom Verlaine, The Ramones, The Runaways (with a good Lita Ford "guitar goddess" shot), The Zippers, Iggy Pop, Dead Boys, The Damned, Backstage Pass, The Dickies, Deborah Harry (including one of her playing together with Joan Jett), Talking Heads, Suzi Quatro, The Weirdoos, and several more in various combinations, and other more esoteric bands. Rare and fragile. Recently reprinted in 2010, *OCLC* locates a single copy of this first edition (at Mills College). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
