        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]).

West Bank, About 120 BC-70 AC . *** Illustrations: . *** Names related to the work: , . *** Facsimile Edition: 3 rolls volumes: Exact reproduction of the original document (extent, color and size) *** Limitation: 400 copies copies. New York: Johnson Reprint Corporation, 1979. 1/400. Quarto. 93pp (text), 108pp (photographic reproductions). Original linen covered box with title in Hebrew and English on metal plate fixed on top lid. Striking burgundy silk on inside of the box. Casket containing an earthenware jar, 3 facsimile scrolls placed inside the jar (just the way the original Dead Sea Scrolls were found), and a soft leather bound book telling the amazing story of the Dead Sea Scrolls and their discovery. Found inadvertently in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls are regarded by many as the most important archaeological find of the twentieth century. Mystery and intrigue surrounded their acquisition and there are many accounts of their subsequent ?wanderings? as they continued to change hands after their discovery. The three facsimile scrolls represent some of the largest and most important Dead Sea Scrolls: The Great Isaiah Scroll, the Rule of the Community, and the Habakkuk Commentary. - 1) The Isaiah Scroll is the only complete biblical book surviving among the Dead Sea Scrolls. Found in Cave One at Qumran in 1947, it dates from about 120 BCE. The text of the scroll hardly differs from the version used today and demonstrates the degree to which the text of the Bible was faithfully transmitted over the centuries. The Isaiah scroll is approximately seven metres long and is made up of 17 parchment sheets, sewn end to end. - 2) Also discovered in Cave One at Qumran, this scroll fragment is known variously as the Rule of the Community and the Manual of Discipline, and was in two pieces when it was brought by the Bedouin who discovered it to Bethlehem in 1947. The text embodies the rules of conduct for the Qumranites themselves, rules which are additional to the 613 commandments found in the Pentateuch (Torah). These rules of conduct regulated interpersonal relationships and matters of personal piety in a Jewish community which had apparently separated itself both geographically and ideologically from the more mainstream practice of Judaism in Jerusalem. - 3) The Habakkuk Commentary, also discovered in Qumran Cave One, is part of a group of literature found in several caves at Qumran, which have come to be known by the Hebrew word pesharim, ?commentaries.? These explanations often interpret the biblical text with reference to events in the writer?s own time, the recent past, or the near future. Other such commentaries found at Qumran explain in this way the biblical books of Isaiah, Micah, Zephaniah, Psalms, Hosea, and Nahum. The text of the scroll hardly differs from the version used today and demonstrates the degree to which the text of the Bible was faithfully transmitted over the centuries. The transcription was made from the excellent photographs which form the basis of this edition, from the earlier photographs published by M. Burrows, and from the original Scroll themselves. Studies dealing with the textual and paleographic aspects of the Scrolls were also used. Each scroll is rolled and protected by a piece of linen cloth. Size of the earthenware jar: 17" tall, 8" width. The soft leather bound book is gilt-lettered on spine and covers, contains 93 pages of text and 108 pages featuring color photographic reproductions of the three scrolls, along with their transcriptions.

During its tenure, the venue offered performance, art and music featuring artists such as Jackie Apple, Eric Bogosian, and Schloss herself. Musical acts drew from the New York Punk / No-Wave scenes and featured performers like Alan Suicide, Thurston Moore, Glenn Branca, and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Packets of copy art were offered for sale at the loft in color-copy decorated manila folders.

        Altered States (Original screenplay for the 1980 film, crew member's working copy)

      Burbank, CA: Simcha Productions / Warner Brothers, 1979. Revised Draft script for the 1980 film. Copy ostensibly belonging to a wardrobe designer, with notations regarding costuming throughout. Based on the 1978 novel by Paddy Chayefsky, who also wrote the screenplay, as Sidney Aaron. Director Ken Russel's first American film, itself an "altered state" during production. Russell was constantly inebriated on the set, and had the actors mumble their lines in objection to Chayefsky's script, however he kept most of the original writing to prevent from being sued. Chayefsky was subsequently banned from the set, and denounced the film even before production began. Edward Jessup (Hurt, in his film debut) is a Harvard student studying schizophrenia, believing that other states of human consciousness are as real as waking states. Inevitably, Jessup, now a professor, experiments with a sensory deprivation tank, travels to Mexico to participate in Ayahuasca ceremonies, and returns to the US with tinctures he acquired from elders involved in the ceremonies. He begins taking the tincture orally during his deprivation tank experiments, with drastic, genetically altering effects. Drew Barrymore makes her film debut as well, as one of Jessup's children. Set in Boston, shot on location in New York, California, Massachusetts, and Mexico. Nominated for two Academy Awards. Yellow titled wrappers. Title page present, dated Feb. 1, 1979, noted as Revised, with credits for writer Chayefsky, director Russell, and producers Howard Gottfried and Daniel Melnick. 121 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 120. Mechanically reproduced, with blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 2/9/79 and 2/12/79. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus, bound with two gold brads. Lentz, p. 846. Weldon (1983), p. 10.

A Fine first printing of the first edition in a just about Fine dust-jacket that has some minor rear scuffing, signed by author and former US President Gerald Ford on the front flyleaf and title page; A Time to Heal is at once the autobiography of a political career and the human story of a dedicated but unassuming man propelled by history into taking on the immense burdens of the Presidency. It is a dramatic, forthright and firsthand account of a decent man's effort to knit together a nation fragmented by Watergate and a White house staff often contentious and badly bruised by the legacy of the Nixon years. There are light moments as well, of family fun, irreverence, pleasure and warmth .
