        39' x 37' x 16' (approx). AND / OR [Gallery]. June 22 to July 9, 1978

      [Seattle]: [And/or Gallery], 1978. SIGNED limited edition. No. 36 of 50 (boxed copies?), out of 400 total exhibit catalogues. Stapled brown craft-paper wrappers printed in black, with partially printed/ partially handwritten limitation info to lower corner. In painted cardboard box. Fine condition in Near Fine box (minor wear).. 22 unnumbered pages, including inside wrappers. B/w photographic images and diagrams. Catalogue: 8" x 9-3/4". Box: 9-5/8" x 12" Exhibition catalogue signed by Savinar to the front wrapper, accompanied by two sealed, clear plastic bags containing sawdust and wood chips, respectively. Each bag has been mixed with printed paper scraps, apparently clipped from newspapers or magazines and with a construction theme. "39' x 37' x 16' (approx)" was a fairly early exhibit in Savinar's now 40+ career as a Portland-based artist. The show offered a mixed media and wood sculptural interpretation of construction work and its intersections with sex, gender, and country music. The bags of construction detritus we speculate may have been byproducts of the art's creation and/or exhibition setup. Scarce. We find no record of this boxed limitation issue, and only four institutional holdings for just the catalogue alone: MOMA, SFMOMA, Portland Art Museum, and San Francisco Center for the Book.

        THE MAN WHO JAPED (Very Fine First Hardcover Edition)

      Eyre Methuen, UK 1978 - Eyre Methuen, London, UK. 1978. First hardcover edition of one of this sensational author's early Ace paperback originals, published long before he was appreciated for the genre superstar he so clearly was. This is a very fine copy with sharp, immaculate black boards, a tight, terrific spine (with a miniature bruise at the heel, barely visible, but captured on film for your inspection - see attached digital picture no. 5), clean pages that are approaching middle age with stoicism and a superb, glossy dust-jacket. VERY FINE. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Photo album]: African-American Family Photos from 1937 to 1978 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

      Philadelphia, Pennsylvania/Wildwood, New Jersey, 1978. Near Fine. Three folio volumes measuring, 13" x 11.5"; 11.5" x 11.5"; and 11.5" x 10". Black cloth binder with gilt floral decorations; brown leatherette binder with yellow decorations; and a white, green, yellow, and blue leatherette binder. Contains 308 black and white, sepia, or color photographs measuring between 2" x 2" and 10" x 8" with some captions and additional ephemera from 1937 to 1978. Some edgewear and bumped corners, near fine with fine photographs.The photographs are of Malvin Hunt an African-American man from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania following family and friends through the years 1937 to 1978 showing over four decades of clothing, black and white relations, and social interactions from the time periods. The photos include posed and candid shots of different family members, friends, and couples living in West Philadelphia. Most of the candid shots are full of smiles, funny faces, and horsing around while the posed shots are usually groups of families or single individuals. One photo shows a man leaning on his knee, focused against a blurring background, looking pensive while another shows a girl throwing her hands up high in the air at the beach. The group photos are from the beach, picnics, family get-togethers, and a men's group. Some of the photos are labeled with names or little stickers with the words "ARMY" on them (presumably indicating military service during World War II) but are otherwise unmarked and in fine condition. A few pictures feature a Caucasian man arm-in-arm with the African American men, all smiling. As the years progress, more and more photos feature other Caucasian people embracing, smiling, and shaking the hands of their African American friends. Several pictures feature the post office that Hunt worked in with pictures of his coworkers wearing postmen uniforms and collecting mail from mailboxes. The army and postal service were some of the first government jobs African Americans could have in the United States. The brown leatherette photo album features pictures from Wildwood, New Jersey and an unlabeled zoo and farm. Some of the animals pictured are cows, ducks, giant tortoises, elephants, bears, and two pictures of a polar bear with "Life Sentence," written on the photographs. Most of the photos are from the beach of people dancing in the sand and lounging in the sun. A photo of two young men, one white and one black, stand tall with the words "Life guards," written off to the side and another shows four women lounging with "Housewives Paradise" written above. The albums present a fantastic timeline of the 1930s to the 1980s detailing an African-American family.

        Liberation - Un Regard Moderne no.0-no.5 (complete run)

      Liberation January - July 1978, Paris - 6 volumes. Folio, ca 32pp each. Numerous Black & White and Duotoneplates. Text in French. A little sunning and scuffing to edges. A wonderful document of the french graphic new wave in the post punk period. "Founded in the mid-70s by Kiki and Loulou Picasso, Lulu Larsen, Olivia Clavel, Bernard Vidal and Jean Rouzaud during their studies at the Paris Fine Art School, the Bazooka group soon imposed uncompromising, cold and provoking work, - signed collectively or with numerous pseudonyms - standing as a veritable graphic counterpoint to the punk movement. The confessed aim was to get out of the classical galleries network, at first through self-publications (Loukhoum Breton, Activit' Sexuelle Normale, Le Bulletin P'riodique), then reaching a wider audience working on records covers, tv titles, daily press and magazines. Hired by Lib'ration in 1977, they literally exploded the newspaper's template, displacing chronicles, replacing photographic works with drawings or adding texts and captions very often in opposition with the content of the articles they were supposed to illustrate.The editorial staff being divided about these graphic interventions, the verbal and physical assaults between the historical newspaper's team and the members of the Bazooka collective increased until their pure and simple dismissal. Their return was made possible thanks to Serge July's help, the latter offering them to develop an independent project from the newspaper, the henceforth mythical 'Un Regard Moderne' (five plus a #0 issues, all published in 1978). The group exploded at the end of the 70s, as a victim of their excess and their frenetic work rhythm, leaving behind an impressive set of drawings, collages, photomontages, paintings and publications whose influence would be fundamental to the graphic creation to come."

      Wiesbaden & Frankfurt am Main: Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft Athenaion; Wiesbaden & Wiebelsheim: Aula-Verlag 1978-2008. - Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen, Karten, Skizzen und Reproduktionen. Vollständige Reihe in sehr gutem Zustand. - Aus dem Klappentext: "Das "Neue Handbuch der Literaturwissenschaft" ist als eine moderne Gesamtdarstellung der Weltliteratur konzipiert. Es knüpft an die Tradition des nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg erschienenen alten "Handbuchs der Literaturwissenschaft" an und soll - wie dieses zu seiner Zeit - den heutigen Stand der Literaturwissenschaft umfassend dokumentieren. Die Möglichkeiten der Komparatistik und Literatursoziologie werden schon in der Disposition des Stoffes ausgedrückt: Das "Neue Handbuch" will nicht mehr eine bloße Addition von nationalen Literaturgeschichten aus diachroner Sicht sein, sondern aus synchroner Sicht die übernationalen gesellschaftlich-kulturellen Voraussetzungen und Strukturparallelen ebenso wie unmittelbaren literarischen Querverbindungen entschieden zur Geltung bringen. Die thematische Einheit der Bände und ihrer einzelnen Beiträge ist daher in übernationalen Epochenstilen und Gattungstraditionen begründet. Besonderes Augenmerk gilt dabei den Gattungstraditionen und der Ausbildung neuer Gattungen. Die einzelnen Beiträge - instruktiv bebildert und mit ausführlichen Literaturhinweisen versehen - verarbeiten im Faktischen wie im Methodischen die Ergebnisse der neuesten Forschungsrichtungen und spiegeln zugleich die in der Literaturwissenschaft andauernde Methodendiskussion wider." - Schutzumschläge teils etwas berieben, mit minimalen Randläsuren und/oder Knickspuren und teilweise etwas gebräunt. Besitzeinträge auf den Vorsätzen sowie einige Seiten mit schwachen, aber umfangreichen Bleistiftnotizen, ansonsten sauberes und gutes Exemplar der maßgeblichen und Maßstäbe setzenden, alle Bereiche der Literaturwissenschaft umfassenden Enzyklopädie. - Complete suite of the monumental encyclopedia of literary criticism in very good condition. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 32300 Gr. 8° (24,5 x 17,5 cm). Orig.-Leinenbände mit roten goldgeprägten Rückenschildern sowie fotografisch illustrierten Orig.-Schutzumschlägen.

        [Photo album]: African-American Family Photos from 1937 to 1978 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

      Philadelphia, Pennsylvania/Wildwood, New Jersey, 1978. Near Fine. Three folio volumes measuring, 13" x 11.5"; 11.5" x 11.5"; and 11.5" x 10". Black cloth binder with gilt floral decorations; brown leatherette binder with yellow decorations; and a white, green, yellow, and blue leatherette binder. Contains 308 black and white, sepia, or color photographs measuring between 2" x 2" and 10" x 8" with some captions and additional ephemera from 1937 to 1978. Some edgewear and bumped corners, near fine with fine photographs.The photographs are of Malvin Hunt an African-American man from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania following family and friends through the years 1937 to 1978 showing over four decades of clothing, black and white relations, and social interactions from the time periods. The photos include posed and candid shots of different family members, friends, and couples living in West Philadelphia. Most of the candid shots are full of smiles, funny faces, and horsing around while the posed shots are usually groups of families or single individuals. One photo shows a man leaning on his knee, focused against a blurring background, looking pensive while another shows a girl throwing her hands up high in the air at the beach. The group photos are from the beach, picnics, family get-togethers, and a men's group. Some of the photos are labeled with names or little stickers with the words "ARMY" on them (presumably indicating military service during World War II) but are otherwise unmarked and in fine condition. A few pictures feature a Caucasian man arm-in-arm with the African American men, all smiling. As the years progress, more and more photos feature other Caucasian people embracing, smiling, and shaking the hands of their African American friends. Several pictures feature the post office that Hunt worked in with pictures of his coworkers wearing postmen uniforms and collecting mail from mailboxes. The army and postal service were some of the first government jobs African Americans could have in the United States. The brown leatherette photo album features pictures from Wildwood, New Jersey and an unlabeled zoo and farm. Some of the animals pictured are cows, ducks, giant tortoises, elephants, bears, and two pictures of a polar bear with "Life Sentence," written on the photographs. Most of the photos are from the beach of people dancing in the sand and lounging in the sun. A photo of two young men, one white and one black, stand tall with the words "Life guards," written off to the side and another shows four women lounging with "Housewives Paradise" written above. The albums present a fantastic timeline of the 1930s to the 1980s detailing an African-American family.

        THE AMERICANS ... INTRODUCTION BY JACK KEROUAC

      [Millerton, NY]: An Aperture Monograph, 1978. Oblong quarto. Cloth. Photographs. A few smudges to free endsheet, otherwise a very good copy, in good, somewhat smudged and handsoiled dust jacket. Third US edition. An excellent association copy, inscribed by poet/photographer Allen Ginsberg: "A late Birthday Present - July 8, 1985 on 57th St. for Lucien Carr from Allen Ginsberg." Ginsberg met Carr at Columbia University in 1943, and through Carr met Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady and William Burroughs. In the NYT Obituary for Carr (30 January 2005), Ginsberg's earlier comment about Carr's role in the circle of friendships that gave birth to the literary arm of the Beat generation was quoted: "Lou was the glue." Carr went to work for United Press International in 1946 and was promoted to night news editor in 1956, coincident with the preparations for press of the first public edition of HOWL. Carr was included, with Kerouac, Burroughs and Cassady, in the printed dedication, and when he received his copy, wrote Ginsberg expressing "one small gripe" about his inclusion there, and requesting, out of deference to his privacy, that Ginsberg avoid such mention in future books. At Ginsberg's expense, Carr's name was deleted from the dedication page of the second impression (then already printed), and from subsequent printings. Nonetheless, in 1982, Ginsberg dedicated PLUTONIAN ODE to Carr, "... for friendship all these years...."

        Letter - John Gardner

      1978 - Typed letter signed "John" to Andre L. Speyer. 8vo., on plain paper; approximately 500 words, unpublished. "I received Florence's angry letter today. I'm sorry my not writing depressed you and made you angry. My sickness threw things into confusion. Then it was time to teach at Bread Loaf, where I work day and night, locked off from the universe. There were some other things too - writing deadlines and so on - but never mind. The upshot is, whenever I'd get a moment's emotional respite, I wouldn't put it into letters I should write but would take care of the things that forced themselves on me, like moving to Binghamton, arguing with the IRS, and so on. I guess the program is indeed dead. With the NPR reorganization a new suggestion was made to me, a half-hour program once a week, but I've heard nothing about it for months. Meanwhile, I'm doing other things - working on a novel, some more libretti, some plays, some children's things - and not worrying about it. Life has its little twists." ---- The recipient, Andre L. Speyer, played French horn for the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops. Gardner acknowledged Speyer in his novel "October Light." An insightful letter with a distinguished provenance.

Maler und Graphiker Georg Eisler (1928-1998) und dessen Ehefrau Alice. Ebenso beiliegend eine kleinformatige Original-Bleistiftzeichnung (10,4 x 14,7 cm) von Johann Hauser mit einem Christbaum. Die Baumspitze ist mit einem Stern, einem der immer wiederkehrenden Lieblingssymbole Hausers geschmückt. Seine Sterne haben immer nur 4 Zacken und haben aufgrund dieser Sonderform einen hohen Wiedererkennungswert und sind zum Symbol für das Gugginger Haus der Künstler geworden. Auf der Rückseite von Navratil beschriftet: 20.12.71 ("depressiv"). - Der 1926 in Bratislava geborene Johann Hauser kam bereits als Teenager, Ende der 1940er Jahre aufgrund einer manischen Depression in die niederösterreichische Landes-Nervenklinik Maria Gugging, Klosterneuburg. Das 1981 von dem Primar der Anstalt, Leo Navratil gegründete `Haus der Künstler`, sollte vom Gründungsjahr bis zu Hausners Tode seine Heimat bleiben. H. zählte zu einer kleinen, sich herauskristallisierender Gruppe besonders ausdrucksstarker Patienten und seine künstlerischen Fähigkeiten wurden von N. seit den 1960er Jahren intensiv gefördert. Die künstlerischen Ergebnisse ließen deutlich erkennen, ob sich H. in einer manischen oder depressiven Phase befand. 4°. 236(6) S. Mit zahlr., tlw. farb. Abb. im Text u. auf Tafelseiten (dav. einige gef.). OKart. m. farb. Deckelillustr. Am unt. Kapital m. Knickspur, ansonsten in gutem u. sauberen Erhaltungszustand.
