        The Postman Always Rings Twice (Original screenplay for the 1981 film, copy belonging to actor Jim S. Cash)

      Los Angeles: Lorimar, 1979. Second Draft Screenplay for the 1981 film. Copy belonging to actor Jim S. Cash, who played one of the Twin Oaks tavern customers, with his ownership name in holograph ink on the front wrapper. Various editorial notations throughout in holographic ink and pencil. Directed by Bob Rafelson, and based on the 1939 novel by James M. Cain, this film was one of the gems of late 1970s cinema (along with "The Verdict") that brought David Mamet to the attention of the filmmaking world, and led to his working not only as a screenwriter but an important director. Mamet's grim update of Cain's classic hard-boiled novel was somewhat panned on release, but is today held in high regard, and is considered a major influence on the genre. Red titled wrappers, title stamped in gilt on the front wrapper, with a holograph pencil notation that this copy No. 17. Title page present, with a date of December, 1979 and credits for novelist Cain and screenwriter Mamet. 133 leaves, mechanically reproduced, with blue and pink revision pages throughout, dated variously between 1/14/80 and 5/7/80. Pages about Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus with some light rubbing to the gilt title on the front wrapper, bound with two gold brads. Silver US. Spicer US.

        Kitab al-Injil al-sharif al-tahir wa-al-misbah al-munir al-zahir muqassaman kanayisiyan madar al-sanah hasaba tartib al-Anba al-Qiddisiyin al-Sharqiyin [= Book of the liturgical Gospels].Dayr al-Shuwayr (or Dhour el Choueir, in Lebanon), Dayr Mar Yuhanna [= Monastery of Saint John the Baptist], 1861. Folio (30.5 x 21.5 cm). A Greek Melkite Evangeliary in Arabic, with each page in a border of thick-thin rules, pp. 246-301 printed in red and black, 4 lithographed plates showing the 4 Evangelists (with captions in Greek capitals), and 2 woodcuts of the Madonna and child. Bound by the Dayr al-Shuwayr Monastery in contemporary gold- and blind-tooled reddish-brown goatskin morocco, each board with a gold centrepiece.

      J. Nasrallah, Histoire du mouvement littéraire dans l'église Melchite (1979), 44; cf. Darlow & Moule 1661 & 1662 ; KVK & WorldCat (3 copies of 1776 ed.); Schnurrer 360; for Zakher: J.E. Kahale, Abdallah Zakher (2000); Hanebutt-Benz et al., Middle Eastern languages and the print revolution (2002), pp. 179-181. Very rare Arabic edition printed in Lebanon of the four Gospels arranged for liturgical use in the Greek Melkite Church, to make readings for services according to the day of the year: a so-called Evangeliary or Evangelion. It was intended primarily for Arabic-speaking Christians in the Middle East, rather than for missionary work. The first Arabic edition was printed and published at Aleppo in 1706. Al-Shamas Abdallah Zakher (1684-1748), son of an Aleppo goldsmith, worked at the Aleppo printing office but had to flee in 1722 because of disputes that were to lead to the 1724 schism in the Melkite Church. Zakher established the printing office of the Melkite monastery of St. John the Baptist at Dayr al-Shuwayr in the Lebanese Kisrawan mountains, where he produced a psalter in 1734. He is said to have been skilled in jewelry-making and cutting in metal and wood, and to have cut the punches for the 1734 Arabic type. The printing office produced about 70 Arabic editions before it closed in 1899. With manuscript notes in Arabic script on the front paste-down and in French on one damaged leaf. With a tear into the text of 2 leaves, one repaired with tape and with its margins badly damaged, water stains in the 4 plates, some browning and an occasional spot or stain, but most leaves in good condition. The binding somewhat worn. Very rare example of an Arabic liturgical work, printed and bound at the Monastery of St John the Baptist in Dayr al-Shuwayr, Lebanon.

        Original August 16, 1979 Typed Letter Signed From Pulitzer Prize Winner Michael Shaara (CANDID DISCUSSION OF HIS FAMOUS MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT AND SUBSEQUENT DRUG OVERDOSE)

      Tallahassee, FL: Original Letter, 1979. Ephemera. Single Sheet. Near Fine. 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.

Gross is best known as a sculptor, and he created works for schools, public colleges, government buildings, and pavilions at the World's Fair of 1939 in New York. A number of works have been published about him (Renee and Chaim Gross Foundation website, Smithsonian Institution website).

Based on other drafts we have seen, this one would precede October 1979 (and the commencement of production).A defining De Palma film, suspenseful in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock and intense sexuality. The film begins with a very famous update on the "Hitchcock shower scene," with Angie Dickinson very plausibly filling Janet Leigh's role. The sixth of nine highly distinctive films De Palma made between 1973 and 1984. Black wrappers, with a white title label. 99 leaves, mechanically reproduced.

        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.

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]

Almost all of them are put in a clear stiff mylar dustjacket made for comics. I think the asking price is very fair since these are so very old. Some of the oldest comics are showing a bit of yellowing around the page edges. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS) to poet W. S. Merwin

      6 July 1979, Finn Rock, OR - Fine one-page, single-spaced TYPED LETTER of @250 words SIGNED as "Barry." Lopez congratulates Merwin on winning the Bollingen Prize and then launches into a newsy account of his book tour for OF WOLVES AND MEN: "I could not have been treated better by Scribner's as far as a focus on the book and not on me was concerned." He then discusses his work at hand: "I'm pleased with RIVER NOTES, the second book in the trilogy that began with DESERT NOTES. I wanted the link between the two books to be clear, but for them to be as different as the landscapes from which they derive in their structure and incident, and am satisfied that they are." Normal mailing folds. Fine with hand-addressed envelope [Attributes: Signed Copy]
