        Andy Warhol boldly signed black and white glossy press photo, in a classic Warhol moment of " Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes."

      n.p.: , n.d, 1978. n.p., n.d.. 7" x 9". "A stunning, boldly signed 9"" x 7"" glossy black and white photo of Andy Warhol directing Anne Ford Uzzielli, (left) and her sister Charlotte Ford during an impromptu picture session at New York's Katja Restaurant. Boldly signed and inscribed by Andy Warhol in black felt tip as ""Andy Warhol"", ""To John"", and inscribed The occasion was a black-tie reception for the debut of Charlotte Ford's book on etiquette, ""Charlotte Ford's Book of Modern Manners, which included an excerpt on the ""Etiquette of Divorce "", which was scheduled to appear in the March issue of Ladies' Home Journal in 1978. Near fine with small leftover address remnants to versoWarhol always had an immense fascination for fame, beauty, sex, and etiquette. He focused on whatever mattered most to people. His heightened awareness of fame and the ""famous"" established himself and his brand as his belief was ""Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.' And famous people, places and things are known to 'sell'. As such he went about his art showcasing people and things that everyone would recognize. Responsible for the rise of Pop Art, Warhol’s work is a commentary on the shallowness, repetitiveness and commercialism of consumer culture, while also a celebration of Hollywood and the post-1950s ‘boom’. Focusing on what people would recognize, Warhol's 'factory' created art… whether be it a soup can or Mick Jagger, a Brillo box or the Electric Chair, Marilyn Monroe or a dollar sign. His established ""Factory"", which was not just a social hub, but also Warhol’s jumping off point to go from mere mortal to artist-machine.This black and white glossy depicts the essence of Warhol's fascination, with him photographing Charlotte Ford, daughter of tycoon Henry Ford II, and the divorced wife of Greek shipping tycoon Stavros Niarchos, who had just authored a racy book on Etiquette and Manners which discussed divorce, sex and the newly single woman.A great piece, boldly signed and inscribed by Warhol."

        Typed Letter Signed on University of Minnesota letterhead

      Minneapolis 1978 - American physician called "The Greatest American Surgeon of the 20th Century." He is credited, during his 37-year tenure at the University of Minnesota, for recognizing the cause of Appendicitis and other diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. In 1952 he performed the world's first open heart surgery, his students being none other than Christian N. Barnard, C. Walton Lillehei, and Norman E. Shumway, all of whom performed the first human heart transplants and credited their surgical techniques to Dr. Wangensteen. 2 pages, 11 x 8.5 inches, Minneapolis, August 30, 1978, providing Dr. William B. Rogers with biographical information for an article, in small part: ".History tells us that innovators who attempt to set aside tradition are at great risk. Whereas the first edition of my book on Intestinal Obstructions won the Samuel D. Gross Award in 1935, I had to send the monograph to four publishers before I found a taker. Similarly, a brief report upon suction siphonage of jejunal obstructions was rejected by an experimental as well as surgical journal.In my long years of identification with the problem, since 1925 and with the aid of a large number of proteges who have emerged as great surgeons, an effective attack has been made upon the problem with an astounding reduction in the mortality at the national level.In the mid 1930s, my associates and I were able to establish for the rabbit, chimpanzee, and man that perforation of the appendix is owing to the high secretory pressure within its lumen; when the appendix is obstructed, with a temporary ligature or by a fecalith, pressures exceeding diastolic blood pressure are regularly observed." Note: a postage stamp and commemorative coin have been proposed to honor career of Dr. Wangensteen. Near fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Stand

      1978. First Edition . Signed. KING, Stephen. The Stand. Garden City: Doubleday, 1978. Thick octavo, original half black cloth, original dust jacket. $3800.First edition of KingÂ’s Hugo-nominated epic tale of apocalyptic terror, inscribed by him to noted horror collector Bongo Wolf, “For Bongo—With all best, Stephen King, 9/9/79.”""The book that took me the longest to write was The Stand. This is also the one my longtime readers still seem to like the bestÂ… I was writing this story near the end of the so-called Energy Crisis in the 1970s, and I had an absolutely marvelous time envisioning a world that went smash during the course of one horrified, infected summerÂ… Rarely have I seen so clearly with the eye of my imaginationÂ… [A trust in] violence as a solution is woven through human nature like a damning red thread. That became the themeÂ… There is no moral to The Stand, no 'We'd better learn or we'll probably destroy the whole damned planet next time—but if the theme stands out clearly enough, those discussing it may offer their own morals and conclusions. Nothing wrong with that; such discussions are one of the great pleasures of the reading life"" (King, On Writing, 201-6). Not only a ""very superior example of its genre"" (Clute & Nicholls, 666), The Stand ""represents King's most ambitiously imaginative novel and the most fulfilling exploration of a predominant theme in his work: the behavior of groups functioning under the pressure of extraordinary situations"" (Fantasy and Horror 6-206). ""First edition"" stated on copyright page; code ""T39"" in lower corner of final text page. First-issue dust jacket, with price of $12.95. Anatomy of Wonder II-601. Brooks A6.

Inscribed to Bongo Wolf, noted collector of vampire and horror literature.Book fine, dust jacket with light rubbing to edges and minor abrasions to front panel.

It comprises 31 pages plus the title page and 4 colophon pages, printed from 37 stones for the images and 27 aluminum plates for the text, numbered [1],1-31, I-IV. Pages measure 20-1/2 x 26-3/16 inches (52 x 69 cm.), folded as issued. Printed on specially made Twinrocker paper, with the watermark of the artist's and author's signatures. One of seven artist proof copies from the total edition of 42 copies. Each of the 31 pages is signed and dated by Rauschenberg and signed and numbered by Robbe-Grillet; each page also carries the embossed folio number and publisher's seal. Fine condition in original red cloth clamshell box, designed by the artist, as issued, and the publisher's specially constructed wooden case. "Long enamored of French literature and language, [publisher] Tatyana Grosman attended a lecture by Alain Robbe-Grillet in April 1972. When the writer mentioned Robert Rauschenberg's work, Mrs. Grosman, already aware of stylistic similarities between the two, felt that a collaboration was fated. Two days later, it was underway. During the next four years, Mrs. Grosman sent offset plates to Paris and proofed and translated Robbe-Grillet's text in West Islip; Rauschenberg added images one chapter at a time. The completed pages were sent back to Robbe-Grillet with plates for the next chapter. It soon became clear that Robbe-Grillet was not working in the spirit of sympathetic collaboration but providing a massive text that presented great problems in page design. Rauschenberg responded with images that are much more aloof than in previous books yet responsive to the elegance of the text," Esther Sparks, Universal Limited Art Editions, pp. 447-459. "The title is police jargon, loosely meaning that things are not as they seem....To Robbe-Grillet's mysterious story of lost romance and murder in the city, Rauschenberg responded with a portrayal of everyday life, with supermarkets, underwear, and bicycles. Mrs Grosman saw both contributions as equally nostalgic and sad. 'The effect was a Last Year at Marienbad quality,' she said," Mary Lynn Kotz, Rauschenberg / Art and Life, (1990), p. 148.

        Going After Cacciato.

      New York: Delacorte Press, 1978. First edition of the author's National Book Award-winning novel. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Tim O'Brien on title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. "To call Going After Cacciato a novel about war is like calling Moby-Dick a novel about whales" wrote the New York Times upon publication in 1978. In a blend of reality and fantasy, this novel tells the story of a young soldier who one day lays down his rifle and sets off on a quixotic journey from the jungles of Indochina to the streets of Paris. In its memorable evocation of men both fleeing from and meeting the demands of battle, Going After Cacciato stands as much more than just a great war novel. Ultimately it's about the forces of fear and heroism that do battle in the hearts of us all. "Simply put, the best novel written about the war. I do not know . . . any writer, journalist, or novelist who does not concede that position to O'Brien's Going After Cacciato" (Miami Herald).

        Generative Systems Workshop Artists' Books

      Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College 1978-1979 - Collection of eight unique artists books, three by Peter Thompson, most comb bound, created by or under the guidance of Thompson, an instructor at the experimental "Generative Systems Workshop" at Columbia College, Chicago. During the late 1970s, Columbia College created the Workshop as an open printing studio that offered a wide variety of students the then cutting-edge technology of digital photocopiers and other repurposed office equipment from companies such as Xerox and 3M. The resulting books explore the personal and expressive possibilities of the scanner as an alternative photography tool. The various uses of collage, text and image manipulation link these publications to the history of the artist book while pointing at the future of zine publishing. A compelling collection from a transformational moment in the technological history of image-making and photography. Does not appear to be represented in OCLC. The full collection contains the following books: THOMPSON, Peter. Apprehended. Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College, 1978. Unique artist book. Small quarto, comb-bound. SIGNED to the type-written colophon page and created on "Halloween day, October 31, 1978". Book consists of seven overlapping pages of varying widths. Turning the pages creates altering images of a distorted Patty Hearst's mug shot alongside the words "apprehended". Printed on marbled fine-art paper using a fax transmission of the September 29, 1975 issue of Time magazine. Fine in clear acetate wrappers. THOMPSON, Peter. On the Road with Princess Electra. Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College, 1978. Unique artist book. Small quarto, comb-bound. SIGNED to the type-written colophon page. Consists of repeated tele-copier images of a nude woman, reprinted with various degrees of contrast and distortion, interspersed with a hand written fictional text. The penultimate page is marked with tire tread marks, illustrating both the end of the road trip and Thompson's abiding interesting in alternative printing techniques. Lightly worn, overall near fine in hand illustrated wrappers. THOMPSON, Peter. The book of signatures. Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College, 1978-79. Unique artist book. Thin folio, hand sewn. SIGNED to the typed colophon. The book is comprised of a single cluster of six partially overlapping torn pages with hand typed text and stamped numbers. The text describes an oblique performance of choreography and written signatures; on verso of each sheet the text appears in negative. Near fine in plain wrappers. GILLESPIE, Don. PEIR Group + Presents One Nation Under a Groove, Produced by Don Gillespie. (Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College, circa 1979.) Unique artist book. Oblong quarto, comb-bound. Book of tele-copied drawings evocative of Pedro Bell's super-hero funk comics. Employs expressionistic techniques generated by the copier to create science-fiction backgrounds for the drawings. Original drawing and lettering to the clear acetate cover. A few teeth of the comb-binding broken but retained in a notated manila envelope; overall near fine in hand drawn acetate wrappers. KRAMER, Bobby Noel. Cool Fool. Chicago: The Generative Systems Workshop of Columbia College, 1979. Unique artist book. Small square quarto, spiral-bound. SIGNED and inscribed, "Peter / Some people are from / inner space / with / love" and also annotated "fifth copy / bobby noel kramer". Book consists of typed text alternating with high contrast tele-copier images, some indadvertedly evocative of Provoke photography. Housed in an annotated manila envelope along with two larger tele-copier images, both signed and dated, possibly from a separate book project. Cover neatly separated at four perforations from the plastic comb-binding, else near fine in photo-illustrated wrappers. SHANLEY, Brian. Direct Hints, Near Misses. (Chicago: Columbia College,) 1979.

        Generative Systems Workshop Artists' Books

      Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College, 1978-1979. Mostly near fine; condition varies as noted.. Collection of eight unique artists books, three by Peter Thompson, most comb bound, created by or under the guidance of Thompson, an instructor at the experimental "Generative Systems Workshop" at Columbia College, Chicago. During the late 1970s, Columbia College created the Workshop as an open printing studio that offered a wide variety of students the then cutting-edge technology of digital photocopiers and other repurposed office equipment from companies such as Xerox and 3M. The resulting books explore the personal and expressive possibilities of the scanner as an alternative photography tool. The various uses of collage, text and image manipulation link these publications to the history of the artist book while pointing at the future of zine publishing. A compelling collection from a transformational moment in the technological history of image-making and photography. Does not appear to be represented in OCLC. The full collection contains the following books: THOMPSON, Peter. Apprehended. Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College, 1978. Unique artist book. Small quarto, comb-bound. SIGNED to the type-written colophon page and created on "Halloween day, October 31, 1978". Book consists of seven overlapping pages of varying widths. Turning the pages creates altering images of a distorted Patty Hearst's mug shot alongside the words "apprehended". Printed on marbled fine-art paper using a fax transmission of the September 29, 1975 issue of Time magazine. Fine in clear acetate wrappers. THOMPSON, Peter. On the Road with Princess Electra. Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College, 1978. Unique artist book. Small quarto, comb-bound. SIGNED to the type-written colophon page. Consists of repeated tele-copier images of a nude woman, reprinted with various degrees of contrast and distortion, interspersed with a hand written fictional text. The penultimate page is marked with tire tread marks, illustrating both the end of the road trip and Thompson's abiding interesting in alternative printing techniques. Lightly worn, overall near fine in hand illustrated wrappers. THOMPSON, Peter. The book of signatures. Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College, 1978-79. Unique artist book. Thin folio, hand sewn. SIGNED to the typed colophon. The book is comprised of a single cluster of six partially overlapping torn pages with hand typed text and stamped numbers. The text describes an oblique performance of choreography and written signatures; on verso of each sheet the text appears in negative. Near fine in plain wrappers. GILLESPIE, Don. PEIR Group + Presents One Nation Under a Groove, Produced by Don Gillespie. (Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College, circa 1979.) Unique artist book. Oblong quarto, comb-bound. Book of tele-copied drawings evocative of Pedro Bell's super-hero funk comics. Employs expressionistic techniques generated by the copier to create science-fiction backgrounds for the drawings. Original drawing and lettering to the clear acetate cover. A few teeth of the comb-binding broken but retained in a notated manila envelope; overall near fine in hand drawn acetate wrappers. KRAMER, Bobby Noel. Cool Fool. Chicago: The Generative Systems Workshop of Columbia College, 1979. Unique artist book. Small square quarto, spiral-bound. SIGNED and inscribed, "Peter / Some people are from / inner space / with / love" and also annotated "fifth copy / bobby noel kramer".

(Chicago: Generative Systems Workshop, Columbia College,) 1979. SIGNED and dated to cover. Oblong quarto, stapled. SIGNED and dated 12/13/78 to cover below hand-written title.

        The Country Life Book of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

      4to., original cloth with price-clipped dust wrapper. Tear to upper panel of wrapper which has a few nicks, otherwise a very good copy. First edition. Inscribed by the Queen Mother to Fleur Cowles "This book is signed for Fleur Cowles by her friend Elizabeth R. October 1979." Also with a Christmas card for 1987 signed by the Queen Mother loosely inserted. "Everybody's favourite Royal in Britain is Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, whose friendship has truly enriched my life. How does one characterize this great lady, her irresistible grace, even a raffish sort of charm? I started by reminding myself that she is her century; she was born with it in 1900, to become a beloved symbol of the British royals, known within the family as 'The Firm'. Ninety-five in August 1995, her energy astounds, her stamina amazes, and her curiosity is still as lively as ever." "Yes, I am totally devoted to the Queen Mother, and grateful for her friendship. I love my copy [as offered here] of Godfrey Talbot's book on her which she inscribed in her own distinguished hand: "To Fleur Cowles, by her friend Elizabeth R."
