The Right Stuff is based on extensive research by Wolfe, who interviewed test pilots, the astronauts and their wives, among others. The story contrasts the "Mercury Seven" and their families with test pilots such as Chuck Yeager, who was considered by many contemporaries as the best of them all, but who was never selected as an astronaut.".

        The Executioner&#39;s Song [Signed]

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1979. Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1979. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, of this famed Norman Mailer work (some soiling to the page block&#39;s closed edges, light fading to the spine extremities), in a Fine dust jacket (quite slight edge wear), SIGNED BY NORMAN MAILER on the title page. Mailer was a pioneer and master of narrative nonfiction, of which this work is an excellent example. Based primarily on interviews with the friends and family of both murderer Gary Gilmore and his victims, the book details the events surrounding the murder itself as well as the subsequent trial, conviction, death sentence, and execution of Gary Gilmore, the first person to be executed for a crime in the United States following the 1976 reinstatement of the death penalty after a ten-year hiatus (which death sentence was carried out by firing squad at Gilmore&#39;s demand as he did not want to pursue the appeals process). The striking title may well have been taken from "The Lord High Executioner&#39;s Song" by Gilbert and Sullivan (part of "The Mikado"). The book won the 1980 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and was a finalist for the 1980 National Book Award for Fiction (won by William Styron&#39;s "Sophie&#39;s Choice"). Due to the large size of the book, copies in nice condition are surprisingly difficult to find, and signed copies are quite scarce. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY NORMAN MAILER. QUITE SCARCE.

      1979.. 126 x 95,7 cm.. Die Ausstellung in der Galerie Feldman in New York fand zeitgleich zur großen Beuys Retrospektive im nahegelegenen Guggenheim-Museum statt.

Ab 1974 hatte Beuys eine Gastprofessur an der Hochschule für bildende Künste in Hamburg inne. - Sehr gut erhalten.

      New York: St. Martin's Press, 1979 - Octavo. Original black cloth backed grey boards, titles to spine in silver. With the dust jacket. Over-price sticker to front flap of jacket. Lightly rubbed at extremities, a little dampstain to corner of lower board. A very good copy in the price-clipped jacket which is very lightly rubbed at the corners with a tiny split. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Ursula Le Guin &#150; at the moment we actually found ourselves on the same side of the continent and/or ocean. Confraternally, Tom Disch". Le Guin and Disch were near contemporaries in the science fiction community and seem to have had a cordial relationship, if not a close one. Each held a different outlook on the role of politics in the genre, and Disch poked fun at Le Guin's political correctness in his acclaimed work on the cultural impact of science fiction, The Dreams Our Stuff is Made Of.

        Stock Market Logic for Assured Speculative Profits 2

      The American Classical College Press, Albuquerque 1979 - Hardcover, Green vinyl with title hand painted with yellow paint on front and spine, sloppy handmade binding, but this is typical of these very scarce C.M. Flumiani titles. No dates mentioned, but I've read that the first Stock Market Logic was published in 1977 so this one was likely late 70's. Book Condition: Very Good, slight wear to edges and corners, binding tight, back board has 1/2" tear, pages are clean, no marks. No dust jacket as issued. Flumiani's books could best be described as "funky," they include hand drawn illustrations, hand drawn pictures and lots of other asentric ramblings that make this such a sought after title. This is a very rare title that includes several parts and various paginations. The sections are: 1. Essence, Penatration and Capture, 2. The Economics of the Stock Market, 3. Three Ways For An Investor with Little Money to Make a Killing in the Stock Market, 4. The New Dictionary of Strange and Ingenious Stock Market Tricks the Great Speculators Follow in Their Search for Wealth. with Compliments to the Dow Theory. the Cylinder Theory . Elliott & Fibonacci, 5. The Method 6. Consistant Profits in Puts & Calls 6. Essence and Existence. -- The rest of the book is full of recommended reading lists and sales literature for the rest of Flumiani's publications. Collectible copy of this scarce Flumiani title.

There are light moments as well, of family fun, irreverence, pleasure and warmth First Edition; First Printing; Signed by Author [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Graz, Adeva Verlag, 1979. Hier verkaufen wir die Faksimile-Ausgabe des Rothschild Gebetbuches. Das Original entstand um 1510-1520 für einen unbekannten - aber sicher einflussreichen und wohlhabenden - Auftraggeber. Nach den Wirren des 2. Weltkrieges wurde die Originalhandschrift 1999 an die Erben der früheren jüdischen Besitzer zurückgegeben und für 25 Mio. US$ versteigert. Simon Bening, Gerard Horenbout, Gerard David - alle diese berühmten Künstler der flämischen Buchmalerei leisteten ihren Beitrag zu diesem prachtvollen Gebetbuch. Das Rothschild-Gebetbuch gehört zu den schönsten und wertvollsten Stundenbüchern aus der Spätzeit der Livres d'heures. Der ADEVA Verlag schuf 1979 in aufwändiger Handarbeit lediglich 960 Exemplare (streng limitiert und handnummeriert). Heute wird die Handschrift als Cod. Vind. S. N. 2844 in der Österreichischne Nationalbibliothek in Wien aufbewahrt. Angebotsumfang: 1 Band Faksimile, 1 Band wissenschaftlicher Kommentar, Schuber - bis ins Detail dem Original aus dem 16.
