        OTHER VOICES, OTHER ROOMS - Rare Fine Copy of The Limited Edition

      Franklin Center, PA: Franklin Mint, 1979 - 1st Printing. Signed. 194 pages. Published in 1979. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most sensational American literary debuts of the 20th century. Limited Edition, as stated. There is no ISBN. The book is now rare. A brilliant production by Franklin Mint: Regular-sized volume format. Brown leather boards with gilt design embossed on the cover and gilt titles embossed on the spine, as issued. Text by Truman Capote. Capote has also written a lovely and nostalgic Introduction which appears in this edition only. Art by Bob Dacey. Gilt paper edges. Silk cloth endpapers. Bound-in satin ribbon marker. Printed on acid-free archival stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Re-presents, in a beautiful collectible format, Truman Capote's sensational debut, "Other Voices, Other Rooms". Capote was twenty-four years old when the book was first published in 1948. From the beginning, Capote aspired to and achieved a clean, immaculate style, what he once called the "authentic American voice", which only John Updike and Joan Didion have matched since. The purity of his prose helped define the post-Hemingway and post-Faulkner American literary style, remains refreshingly contemporary, and is a very effective antidote to the many toxic "post-modern" writers today, who cannot write a single decent sentence in the English language. As a writer, Capote had an equal number of admirers and detractors. But to have someone like Cynthia Ozick wax rhapsodic over the first time she read "Other Voices, Other Rooms" is worth more than a thousand words from any other writer. Another great fellow writer considers him F. Scott Fitzgerald's successor: "The scene stirring with rightness and strangeness, the compressed phrase, the exact yet imaginative word, the devastating metaphorical aptness, a feeling of concentrated excess which at the same time gives the effect of being crystalline" (James Dickey). An absolute "must-have" edition for Truman Capote collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such on the Front Limited-Edition Statement Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue ink-pen by Truman Capote. This edition is now highly collectible in its own right. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Copies of the 1948 First Edition available online command $4000 on average regardless of condition. Copies of this edition command more than $1000. A rare signed copy thus. Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood" is widely regarded as one of the greatest books of the 20th century. One of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A flawless collectible copy.

        The Speaking Picture Book. A Special Book with Picture, Rhyme and Sound for Little People.

      - N.d., circa 1890s. Sixteenth Edition. With nine ivory tassels or pulls with strings attached, which when pulled out from the foreedge or side of the box, produce various sounds: a cock crowling, birds chirping, a donkey bray, a bleat, a moo, a coo, etc. Described by Peter Haining as "The piece de resistance of any collection of movables, or toy-books for that matter". See Haining "Movable Books", New English Library, 1979, p. 136. (Note Haining has in illustration a copy of 17th Edition and he dates the book circa 1893.) The book was produced in Nuremberg by an unknown firm, according to Haining, and as the title page discloses, translated versions were made available in French, Spanish, and as this copy, in English. The sharp chromolithography of the cover and eight other illustrations is inquestionably German and Bavarian. With 22 pp of text, including text on FEP (but not counting cover.) Measures 12.25 x 9.25 x 2.5 inches, or 32 x 24 x 6.5 cm. A minor closed tear along lower hinge of several leaves. Age toning to pages, with some light finger soiling in margins. Light wear of gilt on foreedges. Light rubbing along cloth of spine edge. Not all the sounds are so easily distinguishable, as was probably always the case, but they are all here. Seldom found in completely working order as is this example. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Collaborative Archive: Letters, Illustrations, Books

      1979-1991. In the early 1980s, Burroughs collaborated with S. Clay Wilson on the German editions of Cities of the Red Night [Die Stadte der Roten Nacht, Frankfurt: Zweitausendeins, 1982] and The Wild Boys [Die Wilden Boys, Frankfurt: Zweitausendeins, 1980]. This archive 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 the Burroughs' correspondence items (excepting the postcards) have envelopes; one of the postcards is near fine; the others are fine; many depict Burroughs' artwork. • three original pen-and-ink S. Clay Wilson illustrations for the German edition of Cities of the Red Night. Wilson was one of the group of artists who gained exposure in the underground comix of the 1960s counterculture. After R. Crumb, he is probably the best known of that group, and his images are almost certainly the most extreme: all of the underground comic artists sought to break barriers and defy convention, and Wilson's images are densely packed and full of overt sex and violence to a nearly unthinkable degree. In this he was very much like Burroughs, whose verbal imagery sought to shatter all barriers, preconceptions and hypocrisies; the collaboration between the two of them seems in retrospect to have been inevitable. These drawings were displayed at the Los Angeles County Art Museum in the show "Ports of Entry: William Burroughs and the Arts," which sought to convey the influence Burroughs has had on visual arts. Extraordinary images, and probably the best illustrations ever of Burroughs' writings. Burroughs himself appears as a character in one of the images. Two of the images are 5-1/4" x 9", the third is 5-1/4" x 10"; all three are matted and framed to approximately 16" x 19". Also together with the original layout and lettering for the title page of the book: three hand-lettered sheets and one printed sheet. • a trial edition of the German edition of The Wild Boys, rejected by Wilson, who was displeased with the endpapers, signed by Wilson; Wilson's own copy, bound in Niger goat and snakeskin, signed by Wilson and inscribed by Burroughs to Wilson. and the first German edition, signed by Burroughs and Wilson. Wilson's copy is fine in a custom folding chemise; the other tow have a bit of edge-rubbing and are otherwise fine in the publisher's slipcases. • the German edition of Cities of the Red Night, signed by Burroughs and Wilson. Fine in slipcase. ¶ A unique archive of an exceptional collaboration.

        Gordon Matta-Clark : One for All - All for One. Eine Ausstellung Zur Unterstutzüng De "Fonds Gordon Matta-Clark - Zentrum Für Zeitgenössische Kunst Antwerpen"

      Städtischen Kunsthalle Düsseldorf / ICC, Düsseldorf / Antwerpen 1979 - Text: German. De Amerikaanse kunstenaar Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-78), van opleiding architect, gebruikte de stedelijke omgeving, meer bepaald de gebouwen, als materiaal. Hij bewerkte leegstaande panden onder andere door er fragmenten uit weg te snijden. Met zijn ingrepen transformeerde hij architectuur tot sculptuur, hij legde de ziel van een gebouw bloot: to convert a place in a state of mind. In 1977 werd Matta-Clark door Flor Bex uitgenodigd voor een tentoonstelling in het I.C.C. Hij kreeg de gelegenheid om een leegstaand pand aan de Ernest Van Dijckkaai te bewerken, vlakbij het Steen. Ter ere van de vierhonderdste verjaardag van de Antwerpse barokschilder Rubens noemde de kunstenaar dit werk &#145;Office Baroque&#146;. Kort na zijn dood in 1978 stelde Flor Bex voor om als hommage aan de kunstenaar het Office Baroque te bewaren en het als kern te integreren in een op de omgevende percelen nieuw te bouwen museum voor hedendaagse kunst. Dit idee werd positief onthaald en de Stichting Gordon Matta-Clark werd opgericht om de nodige fondsen te werven. Talrijke kunstenaars uit binnen- en buitenland schonken een werk in een poging het Office Baroque veilig te stellen of, indien dat zou mislukken, om als basiscollectie te dienen voor het nieuwe museum voor hedendaagse kunst dat er, zo waren de voorstanders overtuigd, nu hoe dan ook zou komen. Ondanks de inspanningen van velen werd het Office Baroque, het enige overgebleven architecturaal-sculpturaal werk van Gordon Matta-Clark na diens dood, op een zucht van de definitieve overeenkomst gesloopt. Foto&#146;s van het Office Baroque bevinden zich wel in de collectie van het MuHKA en in huidig boek. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.
