        THE LIFE & STRANGE SURPRISING ADVENTURES OF ROBINSON CRUSOE OF YORK

      London: The Basilisk Press, 1979. No. 6 OF 25 SPECIALLY BOUND COPIES WITH 10 ORIGINAL PRINTS (of a total edition of 515) n. Hardcover. 328 x 245 mm. mm (13 x 9 3/4"). 180 pp., [1] leaf (blank), [1] leaf (colophon). No. 6 OF 25 SPECIALLY BOUND COPIES WITH 10 ORIGINAL PRINTS (of a total edition of 515). Publisher's original dark blue morocco by Tony Miles of London, upper board with gilt vignette reproducing Craig's woodcut portrait of Crusoe, raised bands, gilt spine titling, gilt dragon ornament to tail panel, decorative blind roll to turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. (Without the publisher's box.) With more than 80 small wood engravings in the text by Edward Gordon Craig, including 15 in the introduction, and WITH 10 ORIGINAL PRINTS, SIX OF THEM SIGNED with initials and dated, these bound in at the rear in windowed French fold leaves. Original prospectus laid in. Designed by Bernard Roberts and printed at The John Roberts Press on Van Gelder mouldmade paper. In mint condition. From one of the most celebrated private presses of the last quarter of the 20th century, this is an extremely pleasing edition of one of the most widely published books in history--Defoe's classic castaway story, its 1719 first appearance often credited as the beginning of realistic fiction as a literary genre. While our volume is attractively printed and handsomely bound, it is memorable above all because of the wood engravings of Edward Gordon Craig. While they were originally created in 1924 to illustrate an edition of "Crusoe" for Count Harry Kessler's Cranach Press, this is the first appearance of the woodcuts; the Cranach edition never materialized, mainly because of the artist's obsessive fastidiousness, and he continued to work on the woodcuts into the 1960s. The son of acclaimied British actress Ellen Terry, Craig (1872-1966) began his career as a theater manager, stage designer, and actor. During the early 1890s, he met the artist William Nicholson, who introduced him to woodcutting and engraving, specifically the creation of simple black and white illustrations. Watching Nicholson at work inspired Craig to follow this art form, and he obviously had a natural gift for it. In 1898 he launched a new magazine, "The Page," illustrated with his own wood engravings. He produced some of the earliest "white line" wood engravings of the modern era, a technique that leaves the incised line uninked and the block's surface inked, the resulting image appearing to emerge from the paper, rather than being impressed upon it. The artist's son, Edward A. Craig, provides insight into the creation of his father's illustrations in his extensive introduction here, which also includes three essays on "Robinson Crusoe" by artist Craig. The Basilisk Press was founded in 1978 by Charlene Garry, who had opened a shop in the Hampstead section of London exclusively to sell modern private press books. Garry produced an acclaimed facsimile edition of the Kelmscott "Chaucer" and the first facsimiles of the "Red Books of Humphry Repton," with marvelous collotype plates. But though popular and to all appearances successful, the shop and press were undercapitalized, and, due to financial stresses, the Basilisk Press and Bookshop closed in 1988, to much lamentation.

        Dressed to Kill (Original screenplay for the 1980 film, working copy belonging to assistant director William Eustace)

      Filmways Pictures, Los Angeles 1979 - Revised script for the 1980 film. Copy belonging to second assistant director William Eustace, with his name in blue holograph ink on the title page, and his copious notations throughout, almost studious in nature. Eustace's notations detail scenes to be omitted, extras to be used, props on the set, even which scenes included stunt doubles. Working scripts used by people on- and off-scene are varied, particularly regarding notations with attention to detail, and this is an example how different those scripts can be. A defining De Palma film, suspenseful in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock and intense sexuality. The film begins with a very famous update on the "Hitchcock shower scene," with Angie Dickinson very plausibly filling Janet Leigh's role. The sixth of nine highly distinctive films De Palma made between 1973 and 1984. Dark green wrappers with the title and a credit for De Palma embossed on the front wrapper. Title page present, dated 10/10/79, noted as REVISED, with credits for screenwriter-director De Palma. 112 leaves, mechanically reproduced, with pink revision pages throughout, dated 10/10/79. Pages Very Good plus, wrapper Very Good bound with two gold brads. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Seven San Francisco Punk Flyer Paste-ups

      [San Francisco]. 1979 and 1980. Collage paste-ups for seven flyers created and obtained from artist Eddie Troia for shows at The Temple (aka The Temple Beautiful and The Geary Temple) in San Francisco in 1979 and early 1980. Cut and paste elements on letter and legal sized sheets, some with holograph text written with white out on overlays. Some elements with typical rippling from paste, near fine. A collection of paste-ups documenting punk shows at The Temple, an old Synagogue near the Fillmore and the Jim Jones Temple, which became a punk venue in 1979 but ceased having punk shows the following year. The building was damaged by the 1989 earthquake and was subsequently torn down. The mock-ups are for shows by quite a cross section of the punk, avant, and industrial bands in SF at the time, with shows by Impatient Youth, Flamin' Groovies, Alley Cats, Suburban Lawns, No Alternative, Minimal Man, The Offs, Mutants, X, Subhumans, Mondellos, Roy Loney & The Phantom Movers, Soul Rebels, Dead Kennedys, Phone Bill, Zeroes, Sleepers, and B People.Eddie Troia was a playwright, artist, and manager for Jane Dornbacker. His art is characterized by a sure use of confident holograph titles with well-chosen images from pop culture, contrasted with a cleanness resulting from the skillful use of glassine overlay. Striking and beautiful artwork documenting a very important but short-lived venue of the era, as well as a valuable look at the graphic techniques of flyer creation before the computer. It is getting more and more difficult to find original mock-ups from meaningful performances, especially in a grouping. .

        Law, Legislation and Liberty

      Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1973-, 1979. First editions of the economist's magnum opus. Octavo, original black cloth. Each volume is fine in a very good to near fine dust jackets. Volumes 1 & 2 are signed by Hayek. Rare, especially signed. Nobel Prize-winning economist's F.A. Hayek’s landmark three-volume Law, Legislation and Liberty is "an immense contribution to social and legal philosophy" (Philosophical Studies). The first volume in the series, Rules and Order (1973), deals with the distinction between legislative law and natural or "grown" law, and its implications for freedom. Volume 2, The Mirage of Social Justice (1976), attacks the widespread contemporary belief in political redistribution and "social justice" (the latter a myth, Hayek argues). Hayek argues persuasively that modern society has destroyed the original conception of the legislature, and that as a consequence there has been a miscarriage of the democratic ideal. Ours has become a "bargaining democracy," in which government is little more than the football of special interests. In tracing precisely how and why this situation arose, Hayek confronts the central flaw of modern democracy: the notion of government as sugar daddy, confiscating income and doling it out to those with the greatest political clout. To halt this destructive process, Hayek urges "the containment of power and the dethronement of politics," together with the rules which permit the formation of a "spontaneous order" in which law is king and government has neither a mandate nor the power to achieve particular—as opposed to general—ends. He logically demonstrates the inconsistency of a centralized, governmentally-controlled society with freedom. The two, he insists, are incompatible. Hayek’s astounding intellectual range encompasses politics, philosophy, economics, anthropology, sociology and the history of ideas. His language is nontechnical, possessing clarity of style and thought. The book has a consistency, brilliance, insight and accessibility rarely found among thinkers of any age, much less our own. Reading Hayek is a bracing experience, something like the intellectual equivalent of drinking from a cold, clear brook" (Paul Westman).

        Ward 81 (Signed First Edition)

      New York: Fireside Books - Simon & Schuster, 1979. First edition. Oblong hardcover. A stunning and disturbing collection of photographs taken by Mark after she did an article on the filming of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." The director of the film, Milos Forman, has writen the introduction for this book. A very near fine copy in black cloth boards that are somewhat splayed in a very near fine dust jacket. Signed and warmly inscribed by Mark on the second page: "For Peter - whom I love & admire Mary Ellen Mark New York 1979." The recipient was Peter Brook, a film and theater director with whom Mark worked with when he took a acting troupe on safari to the Sahara desert. An lovely copy of a book that seldom shows up with any sort of meaningful association.
