      Brant Wright Associates Ltd, Ashford 1978 - xxiv, 251 pages, 24 colour plates, 68 b&w illus., 1st edition, signed by author, 1978.

The last 100 pages are an essential research tool being a listing of all known Mercer chronometers sold to retailers, ships chandlers etc., including date of sale, price and retailer's name and serial number as engraved on the chronometer dial. A very good copy of a scarce book, with very poor dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

        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.

        The Black Nation: Position of the Revolutionary Communist League (M-L-M) on The Afro-American National Question

      no publisher, [Newark, New Jersey 1978 - Quarto. 57pp. Stapled photomechanically reproduced sheets with printed stapled wrappers. About very good with wear at the extremities, price sticker, and heavy staining to the front and rear wrapper affecting a few interior pages. Amiri Baraka's personal copy Signed on the first page. The Revolutionary Communist League began as the student led African Liberation Support Committee that changed its name to the Congress of African People in 1972 under the leadership of Baraka with a new focus on Black cultural nationalism. The group adopted Maoism in 1976 and changed its name yet again to the Revolutionary Communist League, generating this document penned by Baraka. By 1980 the group merged with the League of Revolutionary Struggle and it appears this copy is Baraka's attempt shortly thereafter to update their positions.The document contains numerous comments, deletions, and additions in Baraka's hand stating with the title that he has partially crossed out and written "LRS (MC)" above the former organization's name. Throughout he has made various emendations: circling obsolete group names and writing "its demise" next to them; putting question marks or "update" next to different sections; adding in long passages or whole paragraphs to expand particular ideas; and with corrections on nearly every page. While we could not definitively identify whether these corrections were ever put into print as a whole, we suspect parts were likely incorporated into Baraka's polemic "RWH on the Black Liberation Movement: Wrong Again!" published in 1980. Rare. *OCLC* locates three copies of this publication. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
