        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. Es folgen eine Andacht zum Antlitz Christi, die Votivoffizien und Messen für die Wochentage, Evangelienperikopen, das Marienoffizium, Bußpsalmen und Litanei, das Totenoffizium sowie Gebete zu Maria, Christus, den Engeln und Heiligen. Die Schrift ist eine regelmäßige lateinische Textura (gotische Buchschrift) mit zahlreichen Kürzungen, geschrieben von einer Hand.Der Kommentarband Der ausführliche wissenschaftliche Kommentar, der von Ernst Trenkler verfasst wurde, beschreibt den kodikologischen Befund und die künstlerische Ausstattung der Handschrift. Neben einem Kapitel über die Geschichte und über die Vorbesitzer der Handschrift werden die einzelnen Künstler in ihrer kunsthistorischen Bedeutung dargestellt. Expl.-No. 525 Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        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.

        Handbook of Physiology. A critical, comprehensive presentation of physiological knowledge and concepts. Section 2: The Cardiovascular System. 4 in 6 Vols. (all publ.).

      - American Physiological Society, Bethesda, Maryland, 1979-1984, 4°, ca. 3900 pp., zahlreiche Abbildungen, 6 orig. Leinenbände; St.a.Tit.; frisches Exemplar. 1.: The heart / volume editor, Robert M. Berne. 2.: Vascular smooth muscle / volume editors, David F. Bohr, Andrew P. Somlyo, Harvey V. Sparks, Jr. 3/1+2: Peripheral circulation and organ blood flow / volume editors, John T. Shepherd, Francois M. Abboud. 4/1+2: Microcirculation / volume editors, Eugene M. Renkin, C. Charles Michel. "The first edition of the Handbook of Physiology section on Circulation appeared between 1962 and 1965. This publication of the American Physiological Society consisted of three volumes that covered many aspects of the physiology of the heart and circulation. Since that time knowledge has advanced slowly in some areas of physiology, more quickly in others. Meanwhile the total body of information has grown almost exponentially, making it increasingly difficult to organize and meld old and new data to provide the reader with a comprehensive, critical appraisal of cardiovascular physiology. Nevertheless, the aim of the revised second Handbook section, retitled The Cardiovascular System, is to accomplish these goals and produce authoritative reference works with extensive bibliographies. The books will be useful to students of physiology at all stages of study, to professional physiologists, and to interested scien tists in related disciplines. The utility of the Handbook of Physiology, Circulation has been proved by its continued and ongoing use by many investigators and teachers, a condition the editors hope will also be true for this revision, but the accelerated pace of cardiovascular and other research will probably demand a subsequent edition in a shorter interval of time."

The first print run of this UK edition consisted of fewer than 1,000 copies, as opposed to the 70,000 printed in the US, making this edition very rare indeed. Foxing to top edge of text block with very light soiling to fore-edge. A few marks to front and rear boards. Binding is still nice, square and tight and there are no tears or inscriptions. Original dust jacket is price-clipped and has a few small nicks and tears to the top and a little rubbing to front and rear panels; spine panel laminate has lifted in places.

        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 yours Erte 3 page addendum, separate folio Erte stationery sheets, Erte lists page numbers and titles of illustrations or comments on the illustration, starting with "Side 2...

        New York Rocker. Nos. 1 (February 1976) through 57 (May 1984) (all published)

      [Alternate titles: New York Rocker Pix; NY Rocker; NYRocker.] Altogether 58 fascicules (includes the rare May 1979 "New York Rocker Pix" supplement, numbered separately as vol. 1, no. 1) comprising a complete run of the seminal New York punk and pop music tabloid, with articles, band interviews and reviews of live shows and recordings written by Alan Betrock (founder), Andy Schwartz (editor), Tad Among, Ken Barnes, Blondie, Victor Bockris, Jim Jarmusch, Amos Poe, Lance Loud, Anna Sui, Lester Bangs, Miriam Lina, and other scene stalwarts, covering artists including Patti Smith, The New York Dolls, The Ramones, The Talking Heads, Television, Iggy Pop, Blondie, Television, Richard Hell, Mink DeVille, The Dictators, Suicide, and others, with later issues tracking the global diaspora of punk and new wave music in the UK, Europe and elsewhere, as well as information on other scenes in the United States, including Los Angeles, Boston, and Minneapolis (where Schwartz began his rock journalism career as an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota), illustrated throughout with reproductions of photographs by Roberta Bayley, Lee Childers, Bob Gruen, Duncan Hannah and others. Sizes vary, ranging from 4to to small folio (nos. 1-24 and the "pix" supplement 29 x 43 cm; nos. 25-55 29 x 38.5 cm; nos. 56-57 20.5 x 27.5 cm) Illus. self wrpps. Some scattered tears, overall very good. New York (New York Rocker) 1976-1984. Together with three original mailing envelopes, one from November 1978 printed with the New York Rocker logo. Offering unparalleled journalistic coverage of the emergence of punk rock in NYC, New York Rocker was written by and for the movement's original clique in Manhattan's downtown arts and performance community. As the popularity of punk and new wave music grew, so did the publication's editorial scope and distribution. NY Rocker, as it was called in later issues, published continuously on a monthly or bi-monthly schedule until it went on hiatus in 1982, returning briefly for two reformatted and poorly distributed issues in 1984, after which it folded entirely. As of October 2017, WorldCat locates a number of partial holdings but only two complete runs in North America.
