        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 1, The Exchequer Years 1922 - 1929

      William Heinemann Ltd., London 1979 - The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - seventeen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. The Companion volumes for Volume V of the Official Biography are the most keenly sought and most difficult to acquire of all Official Biography volumes. There was only a single printing in England and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many Official Biography sets will forever do without. Here is a superior, collector-worthy copy of the first of three Volume V Companions, the British first edition, only printing. This copy is near-fine plus in a fine dust jacket. The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and virtually no wear. The contents are crisp, clean, and bright. No spotting or previous ownership marks. The red-stained top edge retains strong, unfaded color. The only trivial flaw noted is a hint of soiling at the tips of the bottom edge of the text block where the massive weight of the text has caused the edges to touch the shelf. The dust jacket is clean and bright and retains the original price on the front flap. There are no losses or tears. The dust jacket retains bright, unfaded spine print. The dust jacket is protected in a removable archival mylar cover. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e1.

        [Manuscript]: A Married Man's Diary of a passionate love for another man in New York City (1979)

      [New York City]. (1979). Blank book. Octavo. Quarter cloth and marbled paper over boards. A compelling diary kept by a married man (name withheld but identified in the diary): "at 37 in my married state!" - written at the culminating moment of a 15-month relationship with another man. His account consists of 10 manuscript pages in ink, covering a two-month period (February-March, 1979), with three additional pages of manuscript notes at the back (the remaining pages are blank). Near fine.The first page begins on February 9th, with the writer's [John] philosophical justifications for keeping a diary, inspired also by his current reading of Proust and D. H. Lawrence. In the second entry he begins to address the heart of the matter, giving an account of his friendship of over a year with a man (MR or Marc) that he hopes is on the verge of becoming romantic and sexual. The entries become more and more poignant, as his initial advances are rejected, and as he wrestles with conflicting emotions: "Here I am, feeling contrite, self-conscious again - another abortive pass at Marc - another irritated, pained rejection ... It's clear I want to separate the beautiful thing I felt, and want more of, with him from the other big realities of my life. And I can't trust him ... but still he gives me intense joy, intense pain. And always, too, the physical yearning. He is utterly beautiful ... I'm also willing to wait. It has to be reciprocal." With increasing emotion in this last three entries from March, he speculates at length on his and Marc's competing motivations, his urgent need for "the physical expression" (but also ambivalence about its consummation), and then describes how things turn out badly, culminating in a fight, and a mad "dash out into the night followed by hurled wet laundry into Columbus Avenue. ... God damn Marc for being so fascinating - or me, for being as fascinated by my own feelings for him." Laid-in is a manuscript note to John from Marc, written over a year later ("Mon. 5/19 - 1980") on a carbon receipt, in which he explains his attempts to get in touch. A provocative and moving testimony. .

        Factory Records Newsletter and Shareholder's Analysis [with] Joy Division "Bandthe, Bandthe, Bandthe..." [Promotional sheet]

      Manchester: Factory Records. September 1979. Original photocopied newsletter with promotional sheet. [2]pp + [2]pp. Two sets of loose sheets printed versos only attached with one staple. Near fine with some light wear at a staple and some corners, particularly the final sheet. A rare example of two seminal documents from Factory Records. The first, a "polemical newsletter written by Tony Wilson in September 1979, detailing Factory's activities to date, and future plans" (Peter Saville Estate 1-127 #10), is in essence a press release/bibliography describing in an often-sarcastic tone everything Factory Records had released up until that point, including items of dubious legitimacy ("Factory egg timer; menstrual art..."). Together with the newsletter is the first Joy Division promotional sheet, written by Ian Curtis, typed and signed Steve Morris which was sent out with the "Ideal For Living" EP in 1978. Rare. .

        Diving

      New York: Atheneum. 1979. First. First edition. Small octavo. 150pp. Many photos of divers in action. One corner worn, else very good in tattered dustwrapper lacking much of the rear panel. This copy is Inscribed on the dedication page by Dr. Lee to his star pupil Greg Louganis: "Greg, it is dedicated to such divers as you who must carry the burden of 'American Diving Supremacy' ---but whether you win or lose you will always be my diver 'Numero Uno' and my Number Two Son. Your Coach and #2 Big Daddy. Sammy." Dr. Lee was himself an Olympic diver, winning back-to-back gold medals in 1948 and 1952. Later he became a celebrated diving coach and worked with Greg Louganis from the time Louganis was in his early teens. When this book was published, the teenage Greg had already won an Olympic silver medal but was destined for greater glory in the 80s. Additionally, Louganis is the subject of several of the photos in this book as well. In later years, Greg Louganis became an outspoken and articulate advocate for gay rights and remains so to this day. A wonderful association between to gold metal winning Olympic divers. .

        Prince Valiant

      - Original pen and ink comic strip, 7 boxed illustrations, on one page, measuring approximately 16 x 20 inches. The mock-up artwork, which has text pasted below each original drawing, is dated October 14, 1979, strip number 2227, and signed by the distinguished artist John Cullen Murphy, who had begun to assist the retiring Hal Foster in 1971. The strip depicts Prince Valiant doing battle with "a large, loud, red-faced knight," Karran, who is inebriated. Valiant takes mercy and tumbles him gently from the saddle. International praise has been heaped up Foster and Murphy. For instance, Edward, the Duke of Windsor, considered the Prince Valiant comic strip the "greatest contribution to English literature in the past hundred years." A unique piece, matted and framed.

        The Lord Of The Rings: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING; THE TWO TOWERS; THE RETURN OF THE KING

      Allen & Unwin London 1979 - This is the thoroughly grown up edition with all three volumes in one book. The India paper used is as most bibles are printed; very fine paper that is also tough. Thus all three volumes are conveniently included in one handy sized book. The book is foil blocked on the black buckram cover, the text block edges are nicely blue spattered, and the glassine wrapper adds protection inside the handsome box. The paper label on the bo=x is in black and red, and it makes a handsome collectable. The De Luxe edition proved to be popular, and this is its seventh impression. As with most copies the thin paper does crease easily and this copy has a slightly creased title page. The spine is brightly gilt. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Yompor Po'Non (Amuesha New Testament - Bible)

Language (an Arawakan language) is also known as Yanesha' and Amisha. Size: 8mo - over 7 3/4" - 9 3/4" tall. 865 pp. No significant flaws. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 pounds.

        The Operas of Benjamin Britten: The Complete Librettos Illustrated with Designs of the First Productions

      Hamish Hamilton, London 1979 - RARE, POSSIBLY UNIQUE COPY OF THIS INDISPENSABLE WORK. This standard work will probably never be printed again, and certainly not with such lavish care. It is a wonderful labour of love, and contains all the libretti of every Britten opera. Contributors include Peter Pears, Janet Baker, Eric Crozier, Basil Coleman, Colin Graham, Hans Keller, John Piper, Myfanwy Piper and Andrew Porter. It also comes with a unique set of extras - a VERY RARE signed autographed message from Britten, saying 'With best wishes, Benjamin Britten 1963' written on a piece of lined notepaper, along with a handwritten note from the person who obtained it; an original photograph of Britten from his record company archive; and a signed original lithographic print of a Britten portrait by the artist Peter Kettle, produced for an exhibition at Sussex University. This set is a fine tribute to a great creative genius of British music, who remains the only British composer of the 20th Century whose every opera is now firmly established in the international opera repertoire. This is a very special, probably unique, collectors group of items, suitable for an archive or library purchase. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
