        PRIZE FIGHTER [with:] RAGING BULL

      [New York: Chartoff / Winkler Productions], November 1978 and February - April 1979.. Two volumes. [2],103 leaves and [1],101,[1] leaves plus lettered inserts. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only, the latter on white, green and blue stocks. Brad and boltbound in plain wrappers. Wrappers somewhat worn and marked, ink name in each (see below), slight marginal discoloration to fore-edge of a few late leaves in the first, some marginal fraying to a few leaves in the latter, some inevitable thumbing and corner creasing from use, but good copies, internally very good. Two different preproduction drafts of Scorsese and De Niro's revision of Paul Schrader's screenplay, which was itself a major revision of Mardik Martin's preliminary script, adapted in large part from Lamotta's 1970 memoir. The evolution of the script and the revisions evidenced here are treated in part in Kelly's MARTIN SCORSESE A JOURNEY, in the chapter "Blood on the Ropes." The February draft incorporates additional revisions via dated revises spanning February to April. RAGING BULL was a critical film in director Scorsese's career, and the December 1980 release, starring De Niro, Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci, et al, garnered a number of award nominations, both domestic and international, along with several wins. In 1990 it was inducted into the National Film Registry. These examples of the two drafts (copies #37 and #69 respectively) each bear the ownership signature of Les Lazarowitz, one of the sound mixers for the production. It is accompanied by Lazarowitz's original 6 x 12" screenprinted production parking permit. Legitimate examples, with provenance, of the screenplay for this landmark American film are very uncommon.

        Jun Morinaga - River, its shadows of shadows

      Yugensha, Tokyo, 1978. hardcover with slipcase. fine. An amazing book of photographs of river waters, taken by the photographer who was assistant to W. Eugene Smith in Japan in 1961 & 1962. These images were taken by Morinaga from 1960 to 1963. He established his own studio in 1969., In his introduction, Smith writes in part: "The photographs in this book contain no actual human beings. Yet, to me, these photographs hauntingly seethe with undercurrents of the damnation factors of our times... To appreciate them the viewer must break any narrowness of traditional recognitions...It is an experience worth the effort...There are few photographs that profoundly move me, that change my life. Jun Morinaga's photographs did both.... Many months after Jun was working with me, he sat on the floor and we tried to converse. He spoke that "You are the master, what can I do to improve my photographs?" And I replied with all the sincerity of my being -- "In what you do you are the master -- I only wish I could photograph as well.", , Quoted in "Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 70s", p. 218-219.

"He could make things up one right after the other, and they seemed to fit." The first printing of Garp was 35,000 copies -- far larger than any of Irving's previous novels but far short of any of the books that came later. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
