        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.".

        Andy Warhol's Exposures

      New York, NY: Andy Warhol Books / Grosset & Dunlap, 1979. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION, VERY RARE SIGNED LIMITED DELUXE ISSUE, OF WARHOL'S FIRST BOOK OF PHOTOGRAPHS. Exposures, Warhol's first photography book, began quite simply with the purchase of a new camera. As Warhol began taking pictures, he remarked to the writer Bob Colacello: "We should do a photography book together, Bob. We've got to take photographs wherever we go from now on. It's work now, Bob." Warhol's collection of 360 images captures countless major celebrities in candid and revealing moments. With illuminating text by Warhol and Bob Colacello. Signed in pencil on the limitation page and numbered 64/1000. Note: Although Warhol indicated there are 1000 copies in this signed limited edition, this seems to have been fabricated by him. It is estimated that fewer than 200 were produced. This copy was signed and numbered in front of the original owner - it is possible Warhol randomly made up the limitation numbers as he signed them. New York: Andy Warhol Books / Grosset & Dunlap, 1979. Quarto, original full leather with gilt "Andy Warhol" on front cover, silk endpapers, all edges gilt. With attached silk bookmark. Without (as usual) publisher's box. A beautiful production. RARE.

        [POSTER] Tiny Tim : World non-stop singing record, Luna Park. Jan. 12. $10 concert only ... Century of song in one smash hit! (Inscribed by Martin Sharp)

      [Sydney, 1979]. Screenprint, from one stencil, 1015 x 750 mm; extensively annotated in black texta by the artist Martin Sharp, with comments such as 'He did, in c. 2hrs. 20 mins.', 'Goody, Goody', 'Hooray and alleluia', 'Rise and shine today', and 'Michael had to have this'; signed and dated by the artist '10.9.86'; small sections of 'white-out' (confined to the edges), creasing and general wear; unbacked. A unique example, inscribed by the artist, of this very rare original poster designed by the important Australian pop artist Martin Sharp. Sharp was a friend, champion and collaborator of the American musician, Tiny Tim (born Herbert Buckingham Khaury, 1932-1996), whom he had met in London in the late 60s. Martin Sharp's twin long-term obsessions were Tiny Tim and Sydney's Luna Park. At Luna Park on 12 January 1979, in a marathon performance organised by Sharp, Tiny Tim set a new world record for non-stop singing (two hours, 15 minutes and seven seconds). This event became the core material for Sharp's film about Tiny Tim, Street of Dreams, a labour of love which took him a decade to complete and nearly sent him broke in the process. We cannot locate another example of this poster in Australian collections.

        White House Years --- Years of Upheaval

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company 1979 - "White House Years": Thick 8vo., blue cloth lettered in gilt; dust jacket, slightly soiled. First edition of Kissinger's National Book Award winner. A presentation copy, inscribed: "To Phil Habib, invaluable colleague and trusted friend. With affection and admiration, Henry A. Kissinger," on the half-title page. [Along with] "Years of Upheaval" (1982): 8vo., red cloth lettered in gilt; dust jacket. First edition. A presentation copy, inscribed: "To Phil Habib, who made many Secretaries of State look good. with the admiration and affection of his friend Henry A. Kissinger," on the half-title page; laid-in are Kissinger's business card and 3 pages of notes, probably written by Margaret Adams, the senior editor of Wadsworth Publishing, detailing relations between Habib and Kissinger, probably for a future interview with the latter. ----- The "New York Times" once judged U. S. Ambassador Philip Habib, "the outstanding professional diplomat of his generation." Like Secretary of State Kissinger, Habib was heavily involved in Middle East diplomacy, and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1982. Upon his death, Kissinger said Habib was "every Secretary of State's idea of a great foreign service officer." Kissinger eulogized Habib with the statement, "He was one of my heroes. The great thing about him was that he was a terrific soldier." As evidenced by the numerous references to Habib in his memoirs, Kissinger relied a great deal on Habib's acumen and irreverence while serving as secretary of state. "I might not do what he said," asserted Kissinger, "But I wouldn't make a move without finding out what he thought." A handsome set with an exceptional provenance.

        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.

        Original August 16, 1979 Typed Letter Signed From Pulitzer Prize Winner Michael Shaara (CANDID DISCUSSION OF HIS FAMOUS MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT AND SUBSEQUENT DRUG OVERDOSE)

      Original Letter, Tallahassee, FL 1979 - 8 1/2 X 11 Inches. Rare TLS (Typed Letter Signed) from Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Shaara. Letter on author's personal "Tallahassee" stationery. Shaara was a lifetime writer, but consistently struggled with the page. and publishers apparently. As time would tell, he had but one truly great book in him, although he dreamed of an autobiographical Shakespeare novel that would top "The Killer Angels". Interestingly, Shaara also wrote the book "For the Love of the Game", later published and adapted to the Kevin Costner film of the same name. The Killer Angels was Shaara's Pulitzer Prize winner and is most certainly the book he is remembered for. In part, "Please excuse me for taking so long to answer your letter. First, I was out of the country and then when I go back I was sick for a while - one problem was drugs, overdose after a motorcycle accident." Boldly signed at the conclusion in blue ink. A very candid conversational letter in classic Shaara style. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Rothschild Gebetbuch,Exemplar Nr.525,

      Graz,ADEVA, 1979. 160 x 228 mm Das Rothschild-Gebetbuch gehört zu den schönsten und wertvollsten Stundenbüchern aus der Spätzeit der Livres d’heures. Dieses bis nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg weitgehend unbekannte Meisterwerk flämischer Buchmalerei entstand zwischen 1510 und 1520 für einen unbekannten hoch gestellten Auftraggeber. Unter den zahlreichen flämischen Gebetbüchern aus der Zeit zwischen 1480 und 1520, die alle in künstlerisch sorgfältiger Weise ausgestattet sind, ragt das Rothschild-Gebetbuch aufgrund des Reichtums und der besonderen Erlesenheit seiner Ausschmückung hervor. Sein Wert liegt in den zahlreichen farbenprächtigen Miniaturen, den phantasievollen Bordüren und den prachtvollen großen Initialen. Zudem ist der Text, der in lateinischer Sprache verfasst ist, durchgehend mit zahlreichen kleineren, goldverzierten Initialen versehen.Das Rothschild-Gebetbuch steht inhaltlich in der Tradition der Stundenbücher, die als Gebetbücher für Laien in Gebrauch waren und verschiedene Gebete für die Privatandacht enthielten. Der Inhalt dieser Gebete wird durch die Illustrationen anschaulich unterstützt, sodass sich der Betende während des Lesens meditativ in das Bild versenken konnte. Die Bilder des Rothschild-Gebetbuches wurden von großartigen Künstlern geschaffen, die diese Handschrift zu einem einzigartigen Kunstwerk der Buchmalerei gemacht haben.Die Meister des Rothschild-Gebetbuches Wie bei fast allen Stundenbüchern der flämischen Buchmalerei waren an der künstlerischen Ausgestaltung des Rothschild-Gebetbuches mehrere Meister und wohl auch einige Gehilfen beteiligt, die vermutlich einem Atelier angehört haben. Das Werk wurde von mindestens fünf Künstlern gemeinsam geschaffen, über die wir allerdings nicht in allen Fällen genaue Angaben eruieren können. Ein bedeutender Teil der großen Miniaturen geht auf den berühmten Gerard Horenbout zurück, der aus Gent stammte und Hofmaler der Statthalterin Margarete von Österreich war. Seine Figuren sind von starkem Temperament und von einem in der flämischen Buchmalerei bis dahin unbekannten Naturalismus erfüllt. Einen ebenso großen Anteil an den Bildern der Handschrift hatte der „Meister des älteren Gebetbuches Maximilians I.“. Seine Miniaturen zeugen vom hohen technischen Können des Künstlers und zeichnen sich durch großartige Perspektiven und minutiös gezeichnete Detailmalerei aus.Typisiert und meist von kleiner, kräftiger Statur mit strähnigen Haaren sind die Figuren des „Gebetbuchmeisters“. In der Miniatur mit der Darstellung der Auferweckung des Lazarus zeigen die starke Bewegung im Ausdruck des Auferweckten und die ausgezeichnet konzipierten Häusergruppen mit den raumabschließenden Bäumen sein hohes technisches Können. Ein weiterer Illuminator des Rothschild-Gebetbuches ist Gerard David oder ein äußerst geschickter Schüler von ihm. Dieser besonders als Tafelbildmaler bekannte flämische Künstler hat seine hervorragend gezeichneten Figuren in wunderbar komponierte Landschaften gestellt. Zwei Minaturen schließlich sind dem großartigen Buchmaler Simon Bening zuzuschreiben, die von ausgezeichneter Qualität sind und aus seiner frühen Schaffenszeit stammen.Der Inhalt der Handschrift Die ersten sechs Blätter des Rothschild-Gebetbuches nimmt ein Kalender ein, der nicht nur mit den Darstellungen des bäuerlichen Lebens der einzelnen Monate, sondern auch mit zahlreichen Medaillons der Monatsheiligen geschmückt ist.

        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. Near fine.

        Suttree

      New York: Random House, 1979. First Edition. Hardcover. Acceptable. First Edition, First Printing. Association copy, inscribed by people who appear to have known Cormac McCarthy or inspired characters in Suttree. In the original dust jacket with the price of $12.95 intact. In Fair condition, in a Good Minus dust jacket. The boards show soiling, with heavy wear at the corners. Spine cloth heavily worn. Front hinge starting. Pages are in fair condition as well, with water warping, light pencil marking. The dust jacket shows edge wear, surface wear and creasing. The book was lent out by a woman named Kit, who had each reader write an inscription. The front free end paper and the following page have a total of four inscriptions to a Kit and Barb, and the inscriptions suggest the people who wrote them knew Cormac McCarthy personally, or found themselves written into the book itself. A truly one-of-a-kind copy, offering an interesting glimpse into the background of the novel.
