        The Big Green Book - RARE UK FIRST PRINTING

      Kestrel Books London 1979 - Possibly a unique copy of this charming book. Maurice Sendak has signed and dated this on the page after the title page, where his superb first drawing appears. This was published in the USA in 1962 but it was not issued in the UK until 1979. This is the first printing thus. Maurice Sendak signed this at Glyndebourne when he was working on the set and costumes for an opera. Scarce children's book title by Robert Graves with superb b&w illustrations by Sendak. Very scarce signed Sendak book. The book is fine, but the dustjacket has been clipped, probably at the publishers, because a tiny corrected sticker on the front flap of the jacket says 'Kestrel £3.95'. Jacket now protected, and apart from the clipped price is otherwise Fine. The signature is dated May 82. Possibly unique as a signed copy by Maurice Sendak.

        STARART ("STAR ART") - Rare Fine Copy of The Limited Slipcased Edition With Original Polaroid Photograph - ONLY COPY ONLINE

      Alberta, Canada: Starart Productions Limited, 1979 - 1st Printing. Signed. 239 pages. Published in 1979. Collection of art by pop and rock music icons. One of the finest collections of its kind ever published. Limited Slipcased Edition of 300 numbered and signed copies. Precedes and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Debby Chesher: Oversize-volume format. Maroon leatherette boards with gilt titles embossed on the cover and spine and gilt page edges, as issued. Art by Joni Mitchell, John Mayall, Cat Stevens, Klaus Voormann, Ronnie Wood, and Commander Cody. Each artist contributes his or her own text, interviews, and captions as well as supplementary materials such as vintage photographs and preliminary sketches. Matching leatherette slipcase. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Canada to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in the most collectible format possible, the original art of six "Hall of Fame" pop and rock music figures. Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, and Ronnie Wood (of the Rolling Stones) are surely the most iconic. Still, the art of John Mayall, Klaus Voormann, and Commander Cody are eye-openers that complete the picture, as it were, of the time during the latter part of the 20th century when many musician/composers, lyricists, singers, and performers were also immensely talented, imaginative, and (especially in the case of Joni Mitchell) truly great visual artists. All of Mitchell's album covers showcase her delicately beautiful art, the perfect complement to her anthem-songs. One of her most ardent fans was Andy Warhol, and the originals fetch tens of thousands of dollars (if you can still find them). The styles run the gamut of contemporary art: Figurative, representational, semi-abstract, abstract, Folk Art, Pop Art, futuristic/science fiction/fantasy, art that is directly and affectingly inspired by music, art that fuses diverse influences, art that hints at both sensuality and spirituality. An absolute "must-have" title for pop/rock music and contemporary art collectors. This copy is Number 17, indicated as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen by Joni Mitchell, John Mayall, Klaus Voormann, Ronnie Wood, and Commander Cody. It is also very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Debby Chesher. In a lovely gesture, Ronnie Wood wrote a long inscription in black pen on Page 163, and inserted a Polaroid self-portrait of himself and his baby boy. By the time of the book's publication, Cat Stevens had converted to Islam (which does not recognize his art or his music). A Note Insert says that he could not sign the book as a result of his conversion. This edition is now highly collectible, a modern art classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Authentic Joni Mitchell and Ronnie Wood signatures are impossible to find. Here they are, in a Limited Edition format no less. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. Some of the greatest pop and rock music/artists of our time. A fine collectible copy. ISBN 096900530X. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Great Shark Hunt Strange Tales from a Strange Time.

      Summit Books, New York 1979 - First edition. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed in full by Hunter S. Thompson on the half title page. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with a small chip to the front panel and some light wear and tear. The Great Shark Hunt is Dr. Hunter S. Thompson's largest and, arguably, most important work, covering Nixon to napalm, Las Vegas to Watergate, Carter to cocaine. These essays offer brilliant commentary and outrageous humor, in signature Thompson style. Ranging in date from the National Observer days to the era of Rolling Stone, The Great Shark Hunt offers myriad, highly charged entries, including the first Hunter S. Thompson piece to be dubbed "gonzo" -- "The Kentucky Derby Is Decadent and Depraved," which appeared in Scanlan's Monthly in 1970. From this essay a new journalistic movement sprang which would change the shape of American letters. Thompson's razor-sharp insight and crystal clarity capture the crazy, hypocritical, degenerate, and redeeming aspects of the explosive and colorful '60s and '70s.

        Hand Cast and Photos (from The Bandaged Poets Series)

      1979. Plaster cast of William S. Burroughs's right hand created by Caroline Gosselin as part of her Bandaged Poets Series with several accompanying photographs taken by Gerard Malanga of the casting process, Burroughs holding the finished hand, and of Gregory Corso. The unsigned hand is 5" x 2.75" x 7" with a rectangular base and is assembled from two separate molds of the front and back of Burroughs's hand which were then affixed together. Fine with a touch of toning from being handled. Accompanied by four original photographic prints of Burroughs holding the hand, each a different size: 13.75" x 11", 9.75" x 8", 7" x 5.5", and 7" x 5". All are fine except one which has been cut down from a larger photo and has a somewhat ragged top and foredge, near fine. Also included is a long, narrow photo strip measuring 63" x 3.5" with 36 separate images: twenty-four of Burroughs's hand being cast; four of Burroughs holding the hand (but different from the larger images); and eight of Gregory Corso, presumably present when the cast was made, sitting by a window. The strip is Signed on the verso: "Gerard Malanga '79" with "739" stamped nearby, though there is some reason to believe the photographs, (or at least a few) were taken by Ira Cohen who helped conceive of the series and married Gosselin in 1981. Supposedly only two copies of the cast were made; the other is reportedly at the Beinecke Library at Yale. .

Designed by Marvin Israel. 112 pp., with approximately 60 large black and white plates, including several two-page spreads. 15 3/4 x 12 1/2 inches. Out-of-print. Very scarce. CONDITION: Near Fine (rippled cloth on slipcase, else Fine in the publisher's original printed cardboard shipping box). [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. (New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001).] The landmark publication of Model's work, from the 1930s to the 1970s, features her best-known, incisive images of humanity, from tourists on the Cote d'Azur and high-society New Yorkers, to entertainers, to outcasts, and more. From the preface by Berenice Abbott: "I know of no photographer who has photographed people as inwardly as Lisette Model. Her people are direct targets of an artist's vision. She has that necessary rapport with the human species of whatever hue or faction. She is very much at home with all kinds of people. She feels for them and understands them. Sensitivity and tenderness predominate so that the camera finger is on their very pulse. She is concerned about them, and allows them to speak for themselves.It is a large order to look at life unblinkingly in the midst of general confusion. I believe Lisette Model's seeing places her in the foreground of an elite group. She is part of no cult nor fad. She is always herself. Hers is the fearless eye. Lisette has said, 'Don't shoot 'till the subject hits you in the pit of your stomach.' She does not shrink from reality. She meets it head on. Concerned with art, the subject is lost. Concerned with the subject, art is found. This is Lisette Model." Signed by Author [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Don Segundo Sombra.

      Buenos Aires, ‘Sociedad de Bibliófilos Argentinos’, 1979. - Don Segundo Sombra. Buenos Aires, Sociedad de Bibliofilos Argentinos, 1979. Large folio. 197 + [1 blank]p + [4 + 1 blank]f. Title with name and device of the Argentine Bibliophile Society in green. With 9 etchings drawn and engraved by Aída Carballo. Grey publisher’s wrappers, title blind-embossed on front cover, name and device of the Argentine Bibliophile Society in green; publisher’s box with label. Number 77 of a limited edition of 100 copies on Auvergne crème paper (printed for Héctor P. Lanfranco) finely printed for the Society of Argentine Bibliophiles in celebration of the 50th anniversary of its founding on 20 August 1928. The text of Don Segundo Sombra is based on Güiraldes’ personal copy of the first edition of his work (published in 1926) which contained corrections in his own hand. Ricardo Güiraldes (1886-1927) had spent much time in Paris, where he was attracted to the avant-garde, leading him later to collaborate on innovative journals of the twenties including Proa and Martín Fierro. The present work is his masterpiece, and considered the classic Argentine novel; it celebrates rural life and gaucho simplicity in a boy’s growth to maturity under the tutelage of a wise cowhand Don Segundo Sombra, portrayed as a personification of the pampa. The beautifully executed etchings include a round frontispiece portrait, a man fishing, a pair of lovers, and gauchos in the Argentine pampa (each about 215 x 155mm). A very fine copy.

        Jessica Lange (color portrait from the front cover of INTERVIEW, with hand-drawn additions, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY ANDY WARHOL)

      Interview, New York 1979 - This is the front cover of volume IX, number 4 (April, 1979) of INTERVIEW, Andy Warhol's fabled tabloid. On this cover is a brightly-colored portrait of a young and attractive Jessica Lange, executed in purest "Interview" style. Warhol has added a fanciful necklace in felt-tip pen. Inscribed "To Lillyan" (sic) and FULLY SIGNED (again, in felt-tipped pen) BY ANDY WARHOL. 43 x 28 cm (17 x 11 inches), and thus COMPLETELY UNTRIMMED. Professionally deacidified and matted. In excellent condition. Provenance: "Lillyan" was Lilyan Cole, the second wife of Sylvan Cole (dean of American print dealers and a well-known fixture of the New York arts scene from the 1940s until his death in 2005.) When Lilyan died in 1989 this picture passed to Sylvan. Shortly before his death Sylvan gave it to me (his favorite nephew). Original drawing over a mass-reproduced color image is perhaps the perfect embodiment of Warhol's art. UNIQUE. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        THE KENYON REVIEW, special issues for a patron

      (Kenyon College) 1979-1982, (Gambier, OH) - The first sixteen issues of the New Series of this important American literary magazine. These are special issues with loose signatures laid into the covers. According to a letter from the editors dated 1990, included here, these issues were specially done for a patron who donated $100 per issue in exchange for autographed copies. A later note from an editorial assistant at the time states that the donor actually contributed much more than the stated amount per issue, more like $8000, and that only four years of signed copies were done, thus making this complete and the only known set. Nearly every contribution is SIGNED by the author, a total of more than 200 signatures, including duplicates, and including several winners of the Nobel Prize. Some of the better known authors: Samuel Beckett, Alexander Solzhenitsyn (3), Italo Calvino, Joseph Brodsky (2), Czeslaw Milosz, Harold Pinter, Derek Walcott, Claude Levi-Strauss, Woody Allen (2), James Merrill (2), George Crumb, Amy Clampitt (4), Ursula Le Guin (3), William Gass, Robert Hass, James Dickey (2), Sharon Olds, Rita Dove, W. D. Snodgrass, Joyce Carol Oates (3), Robert Bly, E. L. Doctorow, Barry Hannah, Michael Harper, David Ignatow, Mary Jo Salter, Christopher Logue, Anthony Hecht (2), Guy Davenport (2), Robert Pinsky, Harold Bloom, Tom Disch, Patricia Hampl, John Hollander, Alfred Corn, Brad Leithauser (2), etc. Two issues are missing a leaf with writings by Gunter Grass in one and Derek Walcott in the other. We suspect that these were never returned by the authors. Near Fine and quite exceptional, likely unique [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Cleopatra und Meleager. Cleopatra perfuading Meleager to take his Arms in defence of his country.

      . Kupferstich in Punktiermanier, in mehreren Farben, von Ruhot, auf Bütten. 32:37,4 cm. Auf die Plattenkante geschnitten, im Schriftrand unten dünne Papierstelle, verso Reste alter Leimspuren. Literatur: Gerard vgl. 48; Boerner 1979, vgl. aus 72; Manners-Williamson vgl. S. 223. Illustration zu Plutarch,, Leben des Aemilius sowie Homer, Ilias.. Angelika Kauffmann war eine der berühmtesten Malerinnen ihrer Zeit. Bereits als 11jährige galt sie als Wunderkind. Als Tochter des Porträt- und Freskenmalers J.J. Kauffmann (1702-1782), der ihr erster Lehrer war, wurde Kauffmanns zeichnerisches und musikalisches Talent schon im Kindesalter erkannt und gefördert. Die beiden ersten Italienaufenthalte in den Jahren 1754-1757 und 1758-1766 brachten entscheidende künstlerische Impulse sowie die Verbindung zu zahlreichen potenziellen Auftraggebern. 1766 ließ sie sich in England nieder, wo sie zahlreiche Porträtaufträge von Hof und Adel erhielt. Nach der Heirat mit dem Maler A. Zucchi (1726-1795) siedelte sie 1782 nach Rom über, wo sie ebenfalls bald zu einer der gefeiertsten Künstlerinnen ihrer Zeit avancierte. Auch für die deutschen Romreisenden war ihr Atelier eine wichtiger Treffpunkt, insbesondere für den Weimarer Kreis um Goethe, Herder, die sie beide porträtierte, und Herzogin Anna Amalia von Sachsen-Weimar. Neben ihrer Porträttätigkeit betrieb Angelika Kauffmann ebenso erfolgreich die Historienmalerei. So führte sie Aufträge u.a. für Kaiser Joseph II. und für das russische Herrscherhaus aus. Bereits 1762 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia Bologna und 1765 ordentliches Mitglied der Accademia di San Luca zu Rom. Zudem beteiligte sie sich 1768 an der Gründung der Royal Academy; gemeinsam mit Mary Moser (1744-1819), einer der berühmtesten Malerinnen Englands, gehörte sie zu deren einzigen weiblichen Mitgliedern.
