        Parti de la République islamique [en persan].

      S.l. [Téhéran], Parti de la République islamique, s.d. [1979]. - 36 x 37,5 cm. Sérigraphie sur carton, signée dans la planche. Mention de provenance au crayon au dos. De retour en Iran le 1er février 1979, l'ayatollah Khomeiny désigne les Etats-Unis comme le Grand Satan alors qu'ils viennent d'accueillir le Shah sur leur territoire. Dans un raccourci aussi saisissant qu'efficace, le dessinateur illustre cette rhétorique en exprimant l’invincible force de la révolution capable de chasser d'Iran l'impérialisme américain par une simple pichenette. Le 4 novembre 1979 commence la prise d’otages à l’ambassade américaine. Sérigraphie originale, avant la lettre. L’affiche définitive porte une inscription supplémentaire dans le champ : Poursuite de la Révolution jusqu'à la fin de l'oppression et une vue de foule, telle que reproduite dans l’ouvrage de P. J. Chelkowski et H. Dabashi, Staging a revolution : The art of persuasion in the islamic Republic of Iran (1999). Le Parti de la République islamique a été fondé en 1979, deux semaines après la victoire de la révolution, par Mohammad Javad Bahonar, Mohammad Beheshti, Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, Ali Khamenei, et Abdolkarim Mousavi-Ardabili. Il regroupait les soutiens à la création d'une république islamique en Iran, établie par le référendum des 30 et 31 mars 1979. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      A complete run in 15 issues of the Czech catalogs of unofficial, conceptual art from the period of normalization, produced by the Jazz Section (Jazzová Sekce), under the editorial direction of Karel Srp Jr., then the head of Jazzová Sekce, and with overall design by Joska Skalník, covering various forms of media including drawings, performance art, happenings, collage, and photography, and including text, lists of exhibitions, and biographical information. Profusely illustrated throughout with numerous full-page photographic reproductions. 4to. Orig. wrpps. Prague (Jazzová Sekce) 1979-1983. Jazzová Sekce was an organization of jazz musicians that legally organized within the Czechoslovakian Musicians' Union in 1971, and thereby gained the right to publish bulletins for use by its members. However, they went against policy by publishing material not only related to music, but also to unofficial art and theater. Situace evolved from a column of the same name that first appeared in Bulletin Jazz in 1978. The artists covered were outside of the official art scene, rarely showing in galleries, and each issue or catalog is focused on a different artist.

        SCHULTZ

      Mullingar, Ireland. 4to, pp. 455. . "Schultz", Donleavy's seventh novel, was first published by Delacorte in 1979. It was the first book of a trilogy, the second title being "Are You Listening Rabbi Low" and the third title being complete, but unpublished. Our copy is a two volume typed (double-spaced, one side only), photocopied, manuscript reproduced on standard 8 1/2 x 11" white paper. The title page reads: "J. P. Donleavy / SCHULTZ / Delacorte Press/Seymour Lawrence / Property of:- J. P. Donleavy, Levington Park, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, Ireland. / Tel 044-8903". There are a number of hand-written corrections to the typed text (one such can be seen at the "JPDonleavyCompendium" web site); however, these corrections are not in Donleavy's original hand, but are (as is the manuscript) photocopied. The collector from whom we acquired this set relates that all the original corrections were in Donleavy's hand, and that these two volumes were apparently, together, one set of 30 to 40 sets which circulated through the Delacorte publishing house. Certain portions of this manuscript differ from those in the published book so there was, presumably, a further revised draft of the manuscript. Our collector further relates that this manuscript was purchased in 1982, from a Chicago dealer (we have the name). The manuscript is competently bound in hard cover and internally very clean and tight. The boards show evidence of the removal of labels from the front and spine, but are otherwise perfectly serviceable. .

Volume I SIGNED & dated by Millgate. Inside clean & tight. Nearly half of the last volume (vol. 7) is taken up with an exhaustive general index to the whole work. “Chiselling and chipping away at 7 volumes of Hardyan reticence, Richard Purdy and Michael Millgate are meticulously informative editors. So far from banalising or deadening Hardy’s impact, his letters, by their reserve, underline that sense of breaking in upon stifled emotions and private passions which gives his work its singular, lonely intensity” ( J. Keates)

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

      Düsseldorf / Antwerpen: Städtischen Kunsthalle Düsseldorf / ICC, 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 Office Baroque. 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. Fotos van het Office Baroque bevinden zich wel in de collectie van het MuHKA en in huidig boek.. First Edition. Soft Cover. Good.

        Suttree

      New York: Random House, 1979. First edition of the author's fourth novel and what many consider to be his finest. Octavo, original half cloth. An excellent example in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. Suttree is the fourth of McCarthy's novels to be published, but he had started it well before his first, The Orchard Keeper, appeared in 1965 to great critical acclaim. The principle scene of Suttree is Knoxville, Tennessee in the early 1950's. The central figure, Cornelius Suttree, is a fisherman who lives in a dilapidated houseboat on the river. Estranged from his prominent family, he has withdrawn from the society they represent, choosing instead a different world inhabited by people who live precarious, desperate, often violent lives. "McCarthy is a writer to he read, to be admired, and quite honestly- envied" (Ralph Ellison).
