        Correspondence

      1979-1995. In the early 1980s, Burroughs collaborated with S. Clay Wilson on the German editions of Cities of the Red Night and The Wild Boys [Die Wilden Boys, Frankfurt: Zweitausendeins, 1980]. This collection includes correspondence related to this and other collaborations between Burroughs and Wilson, as follows: from 1979 to 1982, six items from the publisher to Wilson; from 1979 to 1985, three items from Burroughs' associate James Grauerholz to Wilson; and from 1985 to 1995, eleven items from Burroughs to Wilson. The earlier items, from the publisher and from Grauerholz, generally solicit drawings, convey approval for ideas, and give progress updates. The later items, from Burroughs himself (one typed note signed; four autograph postcards signed; six autograph cards signed), are more personal, frequently conveying gratitude for a gift or appreciation of Wilson's work. In one, Burroughs (according to a pencil note by Wilson, he is referring to The Chequered Demon) says "vintage Clay Wilson hilarious, horrible disgusting as life itself...Its fine its swell itsa gawdy taste of Hell." In another, in a card picturing a unicorn, Burroughs asks, "Did you see the Barnum & Bailey unicorn? I suspect it to be a goat." Several of the cards are holiday cards, and in one Burroughs wishes "All the best for 1986 and the time remaining to us all." In the last two items, Burroughs thanks Wilson for, respectively, the Graham Greene stories and for a cat book. He also complains about the heat: "Over 100 now for a week. Can't do anything but sit in my air conditioned house." This last card is signed "Bill Burroughs." All of Burroughs' correspondence items (excepting the postcards) have envelopes; one of the postcards is near fine; the others are fine; many depict Baaronurroughs' artwork. Also together with an original of Wilson's layout and lettering for the cover Cities of the Red Night [Die Stadte der Roten Nacht]: three hand-lettered sheets and one printed sheet.

        Now the Volcano. An Anthology of Latin American Gay Literature. Edited by Winston Leyland. Translated by Erskine Lane, Franklin D. Blanton, Simon Karlinsky.

      San Francisco: Gay Sunshine Press, 1979 - Octavo. Original red cloth, titles gilt to spine and front. No jacket as issued. Some very faint marks to cloth but effectively fine. Illustrated frontispiece. First edition, first printing, very scarce cloth issue, publisher and editor Winston Leyland's own copy with his ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. Winston Leyland (b.1940) wasa leading figure in American LGBT publishing and won the Stonewall Book Award in 1980. He established the Gay Sunshine Press in 1975, which was notable for its pioneering anthologies of gay writing from other cultures, and his Gay Sunshine Journal (1970-82) was particularly influential for its interviews with prominent gay writers of the era. The vast majority of the clothbound copies of Gay Sunshine Press books were sold to libraries, and are consequently very scarce. "Now the Volcano is an extremely valuable exploration of what for most of us, North American or Latin American, up to now was an unknown jungle, a casa verde" (E. A. Lacey).

        Human Life

      [N.p.: Self-published, c. 1979]. All elements fine.. Unique artist's book. Quarto. Original photographs and text in sleeves and commercial plastic binding. An early production from artist Barbara Ess, best-known as the editor of Just Another Asshole, and for her large scale photographs made with a pinhole camera. This work, likely made in the late 1970s, consists of a variety of portraits, usually paired with a fictional story. Spanning 48 pages on 24 individual sheets with 20 mounted color photographs, Ess' humorous narrative recalls later projects by Sophie Calle. Decidedly homespun in production, Ess' photographic virtuosity and textual wittiness belie a seemingly do-it-yourself aesthetic.

        Handwritten Manuscript Lyrics of Dreamin'

      1979 - Debbie Harry's handwritten manuscript (fair copy), titled at the top, and signed twice, of Dreaming Is Free, her brawny and lusty, gold selling single. The complete lyrics, all in her own handwriting, 27 lines (169 words), in blue ink, all of them on the recto side of an 8 1/2" X 13" sheet of yellow paper. Celestial Debbie has sealed her signature at the end with a kiss in pink lipstick. Ably framed (UV) with a color photograph of D. H. (white skirt and top, hands in pockets, head tilted, big smile). Lightening of the ink in a few places, otherwise fine condition, and this MS is so fair to behold, that if I had a tail, I'd wag it. Dreamin' was the lead single from Blondie's 4th album, Eat to the Beat, a red hot, new wave, punk rock hit, a sorceress' mix of beauty and power, from the "Buddy Holly/Rave On" school of songwriting, released in the gentler days of punk, just before the '70s gave way to the body piercing generation of living wind chimes, whose only fear was a junkyard magnet. The manuscript was gifted to a poorly promoted and lightly attended charity auction in 1992 and she came away from the encounter soured by the experience. So if you plan to get your own Debbie Harry manuscript, you better start stalking her right now, and be sure to come equipped with a donut for bait, a 3 layer blindfold, a rag soaked in chloroform, and a trunk lid that won't open from the inside.

        A TESTAMENT OF FAITH. A LEAF FROM A COPY OF THE FIRST AMERICAN BIBLE, TRANSLATED INTO THE LANGUAGE OF THE ALGONQUIN INDIANS BY JOHN ELIOT AND PRINTED AT CAMBRIDGE IN NEW ENGLAND IN THE YEAR 1663

      Charles E. Goodspeed & Co, Boston 1979 - 210 x 180 mm. (8 1/8 x 6 1/4"). 2 p.l., 10 pp., [1] leaf. ONE OF 87 COPIES printed and bound by the Stinehour Press. Publisher's blue cloth, flat spine with silver lettering. In the original sheer blue dust jacket and blue cloth slipcase. WITH A LEAF FROM ELIOT'S INDIAN BIBLE mounted on a stub following the title page. The book in as-new condition, the leaf with a little smudging to margin on verso, otherwise clean and fresh. This very attractive little leaf book contains a desirable leaf from Eliot's Indian Bible, the first Bible printed in America, along with a brief essay on its significance. In the words of Darlow & Moule, the Eliot Indian Bible "constitutes the earliest example in history of the translation and printing of the entire Bible in a new language as a means of evangelization." Darlow & Moule adds that this Bible "was the first scripture printed in North America, and also the first version prepared for a pagan people in their own language. John Eliot performed the Herculean task of learning the difficult Algonquin tongue, of translating, unaided, the entire Bible in this unknown and unwritten language, of overcoming many technical difficulties, and of then teaching the Indians to read their own tongue. Samuel Green, the printer, was aided greatly by James Printer, an Indian compositor and corrector of the press. . . . The language is now extinct." Eliot (ca. 1604-90) was a Puritan minister in Roxbury, Massachusetts, who, beginning at age 42, studied for 15 years the Narragansett, or Massachusett, dialect of Algonquin used by the Indian tribes in his vicinity. He worked for an additional eight years on his translation. Printing was begun in 1660 with equipment and supplies shipped from England by the Corporation for the Promoting and Propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in New England. The New Testament appeared in 1661, and the entire Bible in 1663. A descendant of the Plymouth colonist for whom he was named, the author of the essay here, John Eliot Alden (1914-91) had a distinguished career as a librarian and bibliographer, culminating in the production of "European Americana: a chronological guide to works printed in Europe relating to the Americas, 1493-1776," designed to be the successor to Sabin.

        Handwritten Manuscript Lyrics of Dreamin'

      1979. Near fine. Debbie Harry's handwritten manuscript (fair copy), titled at the top, and signed twice, of Dreaming Is Free, her brawny and lusty, gold selling single. The complete lyrics, all in her own handwriting, 27 lines (169 words), in blue ink, all of them on the recto side of an 8 1/2" X 13" sheet of yellow paper. Celestial Debbie has sealed her signature at the end with a kiss in pink lipstick. Ably framed (UV) with a color photograph of D. H. (white skirt and top, hands in pockets, head tilted, big smile). Lightening of the ink in a few places, otherwise fine condition, and this MS is so fair to behold, that if I had a tail, I'd wag it. Dreamin' was the lead single from Blondie's 4th album, Eat to the Beat, a red hot, new wave, punk rock hit, a sorceress' mix of beauty and power, from the "Buddy Holly/Rave On" school of songwriting, released in the gentler days of punk, just before the '70s gave way to the body piercing generation of living wind chimes, whose only fear was a junkyard magnet. The manuscript was gifted to a poorly promoted and lightly attended charity auction in 1992 and she came away from the encounter soured by the experience. So if you plan to get your own Debbie Harry manuscript, you better start stalking her right now, and be sure to come equipped with a donut for bait, a 3 layer blindfold, a rag soaked in chloroform, and a trunk lid that won't open from the inside.

        Historische Bilder-Bibel

      Historische Bilderbibel mit Illustrationen und Versen zum Alten- und Neuen Testament (5 Teile in einem Band). Der originale Ledereinband ist altersgemäß berieben, bestoßen und fleckig. Vorsatz mit handschriftlichen Besitzvermerken. Die Blätter sind alterstypisch leicht gebräunt. Zwei Blätter sind extrem fleckig (s. Foto), da früher wohl ein verunreinigtes Papier eingelegt wurde. Ansonsten ein dem Alter entsprechender originaler Zustand. Ein komplettes Werk, ohne lose Seiten. Auf einzelnen Kupfertafeln werden biblische Szenen jeweils auf der oberen Tafelhälfte dargestellt und auf der unteren Hälfte allegorisch illustriert. Dazwischen befinden sich erläuternde Verse. Durch seine zierliche Ausarbeitung treibt Johann Ulrich Krauss die Kunst des Kupferstichs auf ihren Höhepunkt. Siehe auch NDB 12(1979) S.689f.

        Autograph Letter Signed, in English, 2 separate folio pp with a 3 separate page folio addendum, all on printed "Erte" stationery, Paris, France, May, 7 1979 with signed transmittal envelope

      - Erte discusses the illustrations to be included in "Erte's Theatrical Costumes in Full Color," published in 1979 by Dover (reprinted in 2016). He gives detailed notes on the costume selection and placement to Stanley Applebaum, Editor-in-Chief at Dover. "Erte's Theatrical Costumes in Full Color," is a collection of 49 of Erte's exotic and historical costume designs for theater productions (and for well-known theater personalities), ballets, Folies-Bergere, and the like from 1911-1975. Included in the book are designs for a fan bearing slave girl, worshipper of Horus, wife of Russian Boyar, Ceres, a mermaid, and a gypsy dancer. The published book includes changes Erte listed in our letter. For example, the cover shows a costume for Ganna Walska in "Manon," 1920. In the letter, Erte lists this work as being on p. 10, suggesting that after receiving this letter, Applebaum changed the placement of the costume design. The Gift-bearer for the show "Aladdin" at the Folies-Bergere, 1927 is in the book and in the letter is listed as being on p. 19. Erte mentions the design for the Monster from Scheherazade which is also in the book. Erte refers to Salome Estorick who wrote the book's preface. Erte writes, "I am sending you the information you asked for. To tell the truth I am not very happy about the selection of the illustrations - I think they could be much more typical of my work. First of all the design which I suppose is intended for p.1 is not a theatrical costume but an evening dress (so it has to be replaced). Then I think that there are too many costumes for Sheherazade [sic]; - I believe that four of them would be sufficient; the ones I like best are: "Monster" (p. 43), "Lady-in-waiting" (p. 44), "Shahriar" (p. 46) and "Jester (side 3). I should be very happy if you could replace the two costumes for a children ballet (p. 24 and p. 25) and the Chinese costume (p. 37) by something more effective. Would you kindly get in touch immediately with M. and Mr. Estorick at the Grovesnor Gallery in London (48 South Molton Street. Tel - 1-6290891) - they could supply you with some other designs. [Salome Estorick wrote the preface for Theatrical Costumes].I am terribly sorry to give you so much trouble - but I really should love the new book would be as beautiful as the preceding ones you did. With my kindest regards, Cordially yoursErte3 page addendum, separate folio Erte stationery sheets, Erte lists page numbers and titles of illustrations or comments on the illustration, starting with "Side 2? Front Cover?p. 46 Side 3.".
