        Signed Photograph

      1979. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Original color photograph of the two important twentieth-century dancers and choreographers, signed by both across the image. Photographed by Jack Vartoogian and dated 1979. In very fine condition. 10 x 8 inches (25.4 x 20.3 cm).The important French-born Swiss dancer, choreographer and opera director Maurice Béjart choreographed several works for Nureyev in the early 1970's, including his version of "Le Sacre du Printemps" and the moving duo "Songs of a Wayfarer," which Nureyev danced together with Paolo Bortoluzzi. Their working relationship deteriorated, however, in the 1980's, culminating in a massive personality clash at the Paris Opera in 1986.

      Band Bravo-Leser Pop-Musik zum Tanzen bubble-gum music Big Wam Bum Poppa Joe Co Co disco fox hits Teenage Rampage Ballroom Blitz Block Buster Fox on the run top hit Love is like Oxygen Brian Connolly The New Sweet Mick Tucker Steve Priest Andy Scott Bubi Heilemann Sweet waren eine Band, wie die Bravo-Leser sie liebten: Süße Bubis mit langen, gepflegten Haaren. Irre Kostüme. Jungs zum Knuddeln. Bunt, schrill, poppig. Gute Pop-Musik zum Tanzen. Synopsis: The Sweet started out with very typical basic fare - the "bubble-gum music" of the early 70s. Their songs "Big Wam Bum", "Poppa Joe" and "Co Co" became solid disco fox hits. However, these boys also managed to net the rock fans when they turned around on their style with songs such as "Teenage Rampage", "Ballroom Blitz", "Block Buster", "Fox on the run" and their top hit "Love is like Oxygen". Up to this day these are the essence of The Sweet for a great many people. Brian Connolly left the band in 1979 to start another band: The New Sweet. He died of a heart attack in 1997. The other three kept the project going for a long time. However, Mick Tucker died of leukemia in 2002. Steve Priest lives in the US, his musical output seems limited to his private needs. Only Andy Scott is still on the road, he put a new band together still called The Sweet, and he wrote a beautiful word of greeting for this volume. This is by far the largest volume ever published on The Sweet, illustrated and produced with lavish attention to detail, in a large format and in color throughout with just a few exceptions. It contains numerous photographs that have never been published before - a delight for every true fan! Bubi Heilemann provides in-depth information of his time with the band and the photo sessions.

        Friday the 13th [Friday 13] (Original screenplay for the 1980 film)

      Westport, CT: Sean S. Cunningham Films / Paramount, 1979. Third Draft script for the 1980 film. Copy belonging to actress Adrienne King ("Alice" in the film) with her name in holograph pencil on the title page. SIGNED by director Cunningham on the title page. 1980 was the year of horror films, notably Kubrick's classic "The Shining," De Palma's "Dressed to Kill," and a plethora of Italian Giallo titles from directors like Joe D'Amato, Lucio Fulci, Umberto Lenzi, Dario Argento, and Lamberto Bava. Hidden in the midst of an internationally saturated genre was Sean S. Cunningham's low-budget entry, "Friday the 13th," whose central figure Jason Voorhees would soon define the notion of a "slasher" at the popular level. Jason, part of the holy trinity of modern horror icons that includes Freddy Kreuger (Wes Craven's 1984 "Nightmare on Elm Street") and Michael Myers (John Carpenter's 1978 "Halloween"), is the son of a camp cook/murderer mother, stalking unsuspecting victims everywhere he goes. His trademark hockey mask, an identifying trait not implemented until the third installment, "Friday the 13th Part III" (1982), sets the slasher apart from Freddy Kreuger, who wore a hat, but bears similarity to Carpenter's Michael Myers, who also wore a mask. The hockey mask is arguably the most recognizable image from post-New Hollywood horror cinema, and Jason has inspired comic books, video games, and slasher character crossovers. In this, the first of what would become a twelve-film series, a group of teenagers is reopening the cursed Camp Crystal Lake, where in the summer of 1958 two counselors were murdered by an unknown assailant. The new counselors (including Kevin Bacon) are refurbishing the camp during a storm when murders begin to stack up. Shot on location in Blairstown, New Jersey. White wrappers with paper title label on the front wrapper. Title page present, dated August 21, 1979, noted as THIRD DRAFT, with credits for screenwriter Miller. 78 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 81, and 18 unbound leaves (revisions, crew call sheets). Photographically reproduced. Pages and wrapper Very Good plus, bound internally with three silver brads. Lentz, p. 1118.

        Facing the Other Way: The Story of 4AD (Limited Edition)

      The first official account of the iconic record label. This Mortal Coil, Birthday Party, Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins, Pixies, Throwing Muses, Breeders, Dead Can Dance, Lisa Germano, Kristin Hersh, Belly, Red House Painters. Just a handful of the bands and artists who started out recording for 4AD, a record label founded by Ivo Watts-Russell and Peter Kent in 1979, a label which went on to be one of the most influential of the modern era. Combining the unique tastes of Watts-Russell and the striking design aesthetic of Vaughan Oliver, 4AD records were recognisable by their look as much their sound. In this comprehensive account concentrating on the label's first two decades (up to the point that Watts-Russell left), music journalist Martin Aston explores the fascinating story with unique access to all the key players and pretty much every artist who released a record on 4AD during that time, and to its notoriously reclusive founder. With a cover designed by Vaughan Oliver this is an essential book for all 4AD fans and anyone who loved the music of that time.

        Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid.

      New York: Basic Books, 1979. First edition of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning work. Octavo, original brown cloth. Signed by Douglas Hofstadter on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with some toning to the spine. Uncommon signed. Hofstadter's great achievement in Gödel, Escher, Bach was making abstruse mathematical topics (like undecidability, recursion, and 'strange loops') accessible and remarkably entertaining. Borrowing a page from Lewis Carroll (who might well have been a fan of this book), each chapter presents dialogue between the Tortoise and Achilles, as well as other characters who dramatize concepts discussed later in more detail. Allusions to Bach's music (centering on his Musical Offering) and Escher's continually paradoxical artwork are plentiful here. This more approachable material lets the author delve into serious number theory (concentrating on the ramifications of Gödel's Theorem of Incompleteness) while stopping along the way to ponder the work of a host of other mathematicians, artists, and thinkers.

Dedica e firma autografe dell'Autore (Inscribed and signed by the Author). Ottimo (Fine). . Prima ed. di 80 es. numerati e firmati dall'A. . ''È in questa giornata centrale dell?anno che sembra concentrarsi, avvolgendosi e contorcendosi, negli arabeschi più intricati e misteriosi, nei suoni più flautati e modulati, nelle luci più bianche di specchi e argenterie, il monosillabo terribile, velenoso e intransigente, su cui si annidano i delitti degli uomini contro il prossimo, quel monosillabo secco, imperativo e decisivo che è il no. Questo aspro preambolo è necessario per scandagliare, nel profondo e nell?essenza, il clima natalizio delle opere di Charles Dickens. Un clima d'angoscia e di solitudine che, nelle notti avare d'amore, l'infelice acquafortista ha cesellato con intrecci spinosi, con maschere arroventate, con pugnali avvelenati, per esorcizzare le vibrazioni negative del giorno più solenne dell'anno'' (dallo scritto di Haz).

        Le Ciste Prenestine. I.1. Corpus 1. A, 1-2, numeri I-XX, B, numeri 1-56. I.2. Corpus 2. II.1. Studi e Contributi 1: "Cistenfüsse" Etruskische und Praenestiner Bronzewerkstätten

      3 vols. bound in 5 (I.1, 1 vol. text and 1 vol. plates; I.2, 1 vol. text and 1 vol. plates) comprising a complete catalogue of known Etruscan Praenestine cista in museum and private collections, summarizing provenance, the composition and condition of the existing components (lid, handle, feet, body), including exhaustive descriptions of all inscriptions and incised decorations, with annotations, bibliography, and index, followed by a study in German of the cistae's diverse mix of themes and styles, myths and historical narratives, scholarly interpretations of the cistae's use and origin, with notes on workshops and materials, profusely illus. showing all examples and reproducing continuous line drawings of the engraved decorations. 4to. Wrpps., d.j. Rome (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche) 1979-90. The sumptuously decorated cistae were discovered in an Etruscan necropolis at Praeneste, approximately 37 km southeast of Rome, and excavated in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Their unique and complex combination of different technical skills and traditions, as well as decorative and thematic styles, has puzzled scholars. Their precise use and function remain unresolved questions. One later volume on the handles (published in 2001) is lacking in this set.

        Old Man and Young Man in Bar (Original artwork)

      N.p.: N.p., 1979. Black marker on paper. Archivally framed and matted. Inscribed to Gary Lucas and his wife, Ling Ling along the top edge, in the same marker: "To Gary and Ling Ling / Van Vliet '79." 10.75 x 13.75 inches. Near Fine, with some old mounting tape along the edges of the verso. Gary Lucas was the principal guitar player, along with Jeff Moris Tepper, in Captain Beefheart's final configuration of the Magic Band, appearing prominently on Beefheart's last two recordings, "Doc at the Radar Station" (1980) and "Ice Cream for Crow" (1982). Lucas' solo guitar performances of "Flavor Bud Living" and "Evening Bell" on the respective recordings are singular in Beefheart's ouevre. Lucas managed and performed with Beefheart for five years, until Van Vliet retired to Trinidad, California to be a full-time painter in the mid-1980s. During their association, well before he gained notoriety as a painter, Beefheart spontaneously created drawings for Lucas, typically using colored markers, and typically reflecting the situation where the drawing was being made, either literally or on some abstract level. Accompanied by an explanatory letter of provenance from Lucas.
