        1979 INGMAR BERGMAN - FANNY & ALEXANDER - Original Early Draft SCREENPLAY of the FOUR PART, FIVE HOUR FILM for TELEVISION

      Ingmar Bergman, Faro, Sweden 1979 - FANNY AND ALEXANDER - A FILM FOR TELEVISION, by INGMAR BERGMAN. Translated (into English) by Alan Blair. ORIGINAL DRAFT SCREENPLAY for what BERGMAN INTENDED TO BE a FIVE HOUR, FOUR PART FILM for TELEVISION. The Draft is dated Faro (Sweden), 1979. Plastic Spiral Bound Screenplay, green paper and clear plastic covers, 8.25x11.75 inches, mimeographed or photocopied typescript, 235 pages plus 3 prelim pages (Title Page, Characters), pages printed on one side only. VERY GOOD condition, light toning and soiling to the page edges, overall tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A very nice copy. The full breadth and beauty of Ingmar Bergman's incredible film is only fully realized in the format he originally intended, the four part, five hour television film. This 1979 screenplay draft was the embodiment of that vision. However, Bergman was convinced to make a drastically cut version (3 hours versus 5 hours) for limited release in Europe in late 1982 so that the film would qualify for the Academy Awards. After the spliced and diced film finished its very limited European release, and after it won 4 academy awards (it was nominated for six), a 5 hour theatrical film was given limited European theatrical release. That five hour film was basically a spliced together version of the intended four part, five hour television film. Finally, also in 1983, the full four part, five hour television film was shown in Sweden (Fanny och Alexander) in the form Bergman originally intended. I do not believe that Bergman's preferred 5 hour version was ever filmed in English. His original intent was clearly to have the four part, five hour telefilm made and shown on television in both Sweden and the United States. Thus this 1979 English translated draft screenplay. But instead only the drastically shortened film version was ever released theatrically in the United States. That film was released in 1983, four years after this 1979 screenplay for television was looking for U.S. producers. This Original 1979 Draft Screenplay for the Full Four Part, Five Hour Television Film was sent to Super Agent Paul Kohner (long time agent for Ingmar Bergman and for many of Bergman's film stars). Paul Kohner's ownership label is on the title page, with his early phone number CRESTVIEW 1-5165. SCARCE. This 1979 INGMAR BERGMAN written SCREENPLAY for his original vision of a Five Hour, Four Part FILM for TELEVISION, is the only copy I have, and it is the only copy I have ever seen.

        The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories.

      8vo., original cloth with dust wrapper. A near fine copy. First edition, signed by the author. Angela Carter was an English novelist, short story writer and journalist, known for her feminist, magical realism, and picaresque works. In 2008, The Times ranked Carter tenth in their list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". All of the stories share a common theme of being closely based upon fairytales or folk tales. Angela Carter has stated: "My intention was not to do 'versions' or, as the American edition of the book said, horribly, 'adult' fairy tales, but to extract the latent content from the traditional stories." The anthology contains ten stories: "The Bloody Chamber", "The Courtship of Mr Lyon", "The Tiger's Bride", "Puss-in-Boots", "The Erl-King", "The Snow Child", "The Lady of the House of Love", "The Werewolf", "The Company of Wolves" and "Wolf-Alice".

        Translation of a Comparative Vocabulary of the Chinese, Corean, and Japanese Languages: To Which is Added The Thousand Character Classic The Chinese and Corean; The Whole Accompanied by Copious Indexes, of all the Chinese and English Words. Occuring in the Work.

      Tokyo: Yushodo. 1979. Printed on Japanese style folded leaves, stab binding presented in a Japanese folding cloth covered case with toggle ties. New introduction booklet with red ribbon ties loosely inserted. A handsome work in excellent condition. This attractive facsimile is said by some authorities to have been adapted by Walter Henry Medhurst under the pseudonym Philo Sinensis. It was first published at the Parapattan Press in Batavia in 1835 [under the supervision of Walter Henry Medhurst]. This adaptation of a Korean classified vocabulary was apparently accomplished without the help of a Korean speaker. The publication from which it was developed was written for Koreans learning Japanese. The adaptation added romanizations of the Japanese and Korean, deduced from Japanese and English lists. (Lust - Western Books on China).Although standard bibliographies such as Lust 'Western Books on China Published up to 1850' state that Philo Sinensis was the pseudonym of Walter Henry Medhurst, ?Philo Sinensis? is usually accepted as the pseudonym used by Carl Gutzlaff at the time and appears in publications such as the Chinese Repository. Its presence is therefore likely to indicate some level of involvement of Carl Gutzlaff. However, most authorities attribute the greater role in the adaptation to Walter Henry Medhurst. Accompanying this copy of the facsimile is a typescript note in English from Nitta Yuji, (founder of Yushodo Booksellers, Tokyo) explaining that he published this facsimile on the occasion of his 70th birthday "in order to share its value to everyone in the scholarly world. It is my hope that this small tribute would be of use." A very fitting contribution to the scholarly world indeed. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 142690).

        The Book of Jonah, Vellum Copy; David Jones

      London: Clover Hill Editions / Rampant Lions Press, 1979. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. Limited edition of 8 copies (colophon states 10 copies, but the prospectus and Rampant Lions bibliography claim only 8) on vellum of the great reprinting of David Jones's illustrated Book of Jonah. Copy A was kept by the publisher Douglas Cleverdon. This copy, B, went to his friend Major Roger Kinsey of Headcorn Manor in Kent. This set consists of two volumes in a matching green cloth slipcase. Volume one is the vellum edition bound in full green morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, with a wonderful whale motif pressed into the leather cover and set in gold. The volume is fine. The second volume is bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in matching 1/4 morocco over matching dark green cloth. This is a folding case holding 3 sets of the 13 prints, 39 images total. One set is on vellum, one on japon, and one on hand-made paper. Volume two and contents completely fine, as new. The two volumes are, in turn, in a matching green cloth slipcase that has some minor soling (possibly a couple of drops of coffee) on the sides and is a strong VG+, spine looks fine, no bumps, no splits. A beautiful copy. Prospectus (worn) and three letters from Cleverdon laid in. This is a beautiful edition in any format but the vellum is really something special. The presswork for the vellum was done separately from the regular edition, using a more powerful press for a very sharp image, and the vellum is folded over (thus printed on one side only). The effect is dazzling, truly a fine press highspot.

        Typescript of Share the Seed: A Farmworkers Anthology

      1979. An apparently unpublished compilation of the voices of the Farmworkers Movement, edited by Rudge, peace activist and poet (who, in her later years, was the poet laureate of Alameda, CA). Signed by Rudge at the end of her foreword to the volume. Perhaps a hundred voices, providing narratives, poems, songs, "documentary," and photographs (in photocopy). Hundreds of pages, assembled photocopies of varying quality, but with many holograph corrections and emendations, in what appears to be the authors' and the editor's hand. Velobound in brown vinyl covers. Several pages are adhered, possibly due to the use of Whiteout. Several pages missed the binding and are thus laid in. Also laid in is the obituary of one of the contributors, as well as several ephemeral pieces from the Movement: a printed Thanksgiving letter from Cesar Chavez, 1969, commemorating the fifth Thanksgiving of the farm workers' struggle; El Malcriado, "The Voice of the Farm Worker" newsletter for both November and December, 1969; The Picket Line, July 18, 1975; "The Children of Delano invite you to meet with Cesar E. Chavez" [1969] -- a one-page legal-size handbill promoting an event sponsored by the UFWOC [United Farm Workers Organizing Committee] Defense Fund Committee. These last two pieces are sunned and folded, otherwise the ephemeral items are near fine, as is the typescript itself. A unique document of one of the major social justice movements of the 1960s and 70s, which touched on contemporary racial issues and anticipated present day issues of immigration, citizenship, and undocumented workers. Here the voices of the people themselves prevail, rather than those of analysts or policy makers. First Edition. No Binding.

Very scarce first edition. Beautifully produced book bound in traditional Japanese style. Thread sewn binding. Silk covers. The book is contained with a matching silk bound outer folder with 3 sections and bone clasps. The book is in fine condition - looks unread. Contains 24 prints of her paintings produced between 1971 and 1974, most of which have never been published before. Forward page written by Wang Yun-mu, the Chairman of the Administrative Council of the National Palace Museum. Published in Taiwan, 1979. Zhonghua Minguo Taibei : Guo li gu gong bo wu yuan, Minguo 68 (1979). Very large folio size book - 580mm high x 420mm wide. The book and its outer cover are contained in a very large outer folio cardboard cover with a coiled string closure. This is intact but has substantial marking due to water damage (contents inside not affected at all). This is of minor significance as these cardboard outer wraps would often have been discarded in any case. The outer folder measures 580mm high x 420mm wide. Soong May-ling, (or May-ling Soong Chiang) also known as Madame Chiang Kai-Shek was a remarkable and important figure in the history of the Republic of China. She was the First Lady of the Republic of China between 1948 and 1975, married to Generalissimo and President Chiang Kai-Shek. She lived from 1898 to 2003. With her first class education in the USA, and with her resultant excellent English she played an important role in political discussions. She was a politician and involved in charitable causes, as well as an accomplished painter in the traditional Chinese style, and after the death of her husband in 1975, moved from Taiwan back to the USA. Around 1988 to 1990 she did return to Taiwan and tried and become involved in politics again, but this time was unsuccessful, and returned to the USA. She was a beautiful and formidable lady, and has even been nicknamed The Last Empress. More photos on request. Extra postage may be payable - a very large book which can only be sent via Courier delivery. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A Bestiary

      (Watertown, MA): Bromer, Anne & David, 1979. Claes, Brother Edgard. 19ff. From an edition of 125 copies signed by the artist, Sarah Chamberlain. With fifteen wood engravings of exotic animals, including the panda, koala, Siberian tiger, and platypus by Sarah Chamberlain. Together with the extra suite of prints, all signed and numbered. This copy features an innovative, three-dimensional designer binding by Brother Edgard Claes, signed. Claes's concept for the binding was that all animals are slightly futuristic, with their long necks, beaks, scales, spines, and such. Insects especially reminded him of spacecraft, and Claes ran with that idea when designing the binding for this bestiary. Originating from model spaceships that Claes had customized, two mounted reliefs rise from the covers, with straight horizontal girders arching across their surface. Panels of geometric shapes are painted with blue, purple, red, and orange automotive paint. Large circular agates, one blue on the upper cover and two black on the back, bore their way through the hulls of the ships and provide a sharp focus point. The binding is accented with a purple snakeskin spine and bright yellow endpapers. The accompanying suite of illustrations is held in a four-flap enclosure constructed of purple- and black-striped polycarbonate with yellow and orange geometric designs tumbling across each flap. Housed in a polycarbonate box, with the book and suite each in their own compartment, protected by sliding covers. The box follows the same geometric theme as the binding, with yellow and red geometric designs against a dark background. The title "A Bestiary 1979" wraps around all four sides of the box in a tall, narrow sans-serif font, completing the look. In a charcoal, soft microfiber case. A renowned designer binder famed for his creative use of innovative materials, Brother Claes is a member of the Belgian Order of the Holy Cross. Claes studied with master binders Ren de Cock and August Kulche at the Rijksinstitut in Malines, where he was later appointed professor. His original intent was to do restoration work in the monastery library, but his creativity and zeal led him to the use of innovative materials and cutting-edge abstract designs that emphasize the structure of the book. Extremely fine. (Book measures 2 1/4 by 2 inches [57x51mm]; box measures 2 1/2 by 2 1/4 by 1 5/16 inches [65x57x34mm]).
