        Ford Congratulates The Chairman Of The Commission On Government Procurement: "The Impact Of Government Contracts On The National Economy Is Immense. The Proficiency And Equity With Which Contracting Is Performed Has Much To Do With Whether That Impact Is Constructive Or Destructive"

      TLS. 1pg. 7 ¼" x 10 ½". April 5, 1979. No place. A typed letter signed "Jerry Ford" as former President to Perkins McGuire. He communicated on his personal letterhead with a gold eagle at the top: "Please accept my regrets that I am unable to be with you on this special evening. As you know...far better than many...procurement ranks extremely high in importance among the functions of the Federal Government. The impact of government contracts on the national economy is immense. The proficiency and equity with which contracting is performed has much to do with whether that impact is constructive or destructive. These, of course, are among the issues with which you dealt so productively as Chairman of the Commission on Government Procurement. I am advised that the National Contract Management Association is devoting its energies to improving the competence of those engaged in public contracting and the effectiveness of its processes. It is very fitting, therefore, that the association has recognized the contributions of Herb Roback to the achievement of these goals by honoring his memory in this fashion. I have been told that Chet Holifield was selected last year by NCMA to received the first award and that you are receiving the second. I could not possibly think of two more worthy recipients. By these selections, the Herbert Roback Memorial Award has already taken on considerable significance. My heartiest congratulations to you, Perk. This is a well deserved and appropriate tribute for yet another of your numerous contributions to good government." McGuire, whom the letter is addressed to, served as the Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Eisenhower, and was later appointed by President Nixon to be Chairman of the Commission on Government Procurement. The letter is in fine condition with two mailing folds and a slight stain above the text that affects nothing.

      the artist, Hungary 1979 - Print. 255 x 288mm offset lithograph on paper. Entitled, signed & dated by Tibor in blue pencil. Photograph taken by Janos Veto. No edition size given. This is signed printed work from the artists Tumo II series of 1979. See for example p161 Image Whipping - Tibor Hajas Photo Works with Janos Veto, Research Institute for Art History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, 2004 - where a six part original photographic piece (Tumo II) with additions by the artist features this image. "To recall the life and works of Tibor Hajas is to commit trespass : disturb something which is definitely at rest, mutilate what is whole, classify that which is unclassifiable and, by labelling it as art, degrade what has for eternity become more than that. Hajas' achievement was surely unparalleled. Partly because - in contrast to so many other good artists - what he sought after from the start was absolute validity and irrevocability and partly because his works - despite their finite character - can still continue to give off flames which may easily scorch" (Laszlo Beke, Image Whipping - Tibor Hajas Photo Works with Janos Veto, Research Institute for Art History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, 2004 , inside back cover text.

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 some 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 lyrical art, the perfect complement to her anthem-songs. One of her most ardent fan-collectors (as an artist, not just as a composer/performer) 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, and art that hints at both sensuality and spirituality. An absolute "must-have" title for Joni Mitchell, pop/rock music, and contemporary art collectors. This copy is Number 17, indicated/numbered 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 also wrote a long inscription in black pen on Page 163, and inserted an original Polaroid self-portrait of himself and his baby boy. This title is a great art book. As far as we know, this is the only such copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: By the time of the book's publication, Cat Stevens had long converted to Islam (which prohibits his art and his music). A Note Insert is intact that says he could not sign the book as a result of his conversion. Copies available online have major flaws ("gently used"). Even more important: Authentic Joni Mitchell and Ronnie Wood signatures are nearly impossible to find these days. Here they are, in a Limited Edition book 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.

      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.

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.

        Illustration for BOOK OF THE RROPHET ISAIAH

      n.p., N.P. 1979 - framed painting (24 by 21 inches). Painting by Gross designed for Book of the Prophet Isaiah (New York: Limited Editions Club, 1979) but not included in that work Gross (1904-1991) was born to a Jewish family in Wolowa, Austrian Galicia. World War I disrupted the family's life. After the war, Gross and his brother went to Budapest, where he attended an art academy, but fled the anti-Semitic Horthy regime. He studied for a short time in Vienna, before emigrating to New York in 1921, where he studied at the Beaus-Arts Institute of Design. 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).

      Filmways Pictures, Los Angeles 1979 - Draft script for the 1980 film. Title page present, with a credit for screenwriter De Palma and a date of 1979. 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.
