        Codex Vaticanus 3738 (Cod Vat A, Cod Rios) der Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana

      Graz: Akademische Druck and Verlagasanstalt, 1979 [i-viii]+96 pages of the reproduction of the codex. Folio (13 3/4" x 10") bound in quarter brown leather with brown lettering to spine and cover over beige boards. Codices Selecti Volume LXV; Codices E Vaticanis Selecti Volumen XXVI. First edition of the publication.Codex Rios. Codex Vaticanus A. Codex Vaticanus 3738. Biblioteca Apostoica Vaticana, Rome. Ritual calendarical, historical and ethnographic. Valley of Mexico. c1566-89 on European paper with 101 leaves (48 x 29 cm). Codex Rios and Codex Telleriano-Remensis are currently believed to be copies of a common original, the lost Codex Hutzilopochtli. Codex Rios is believed to have been copied by a non-Indian artist in Italy and its long Italian texts to be based on a commentary by Friar Pedro de los Rios. The date 1566 occurs in the text as a reference to a past event; the paper appears not to have been made until 1569-70. The manuscript has seven major sections: (1) cosmogenic and mythological traditions with some emphasis on the four epochs and including notices about Quetzalcoatl and the Toltecs, (2) a 260-day divinatory almanac, (3) calendrical tables without drawings for the years 1558-1619, (4) an 18-month festival calendar with drawings of the gods of each period, (5) sacrificial and other customs including portraits of Indian types, (6) pictorial annals for the years 1195-62 beginning with the migration from Chicomoztoc and covering later events in the Valley of Mexico, and (7) year glyphs for the years 1556-62 without written or pictorial entries. Most of the codex has a long written commentary in Italian, but only three pages of the historical section are annotated. Details from four pages were published in Cartari (1615). These were obtained by the editor, Pignoria, from Octavio Malipiero and had formerly been owned by Cardinal Amulio, the Vatican librarian. A detail from the fifth page which appears in a later edition (1626) was obtained from Filippo Winghernio. Paso y Troncoso identifies these details as copied form the Codex Rios and not from Codex Telleriano-Remensis or from Codex Huitzilopochtli. Twelve pages were reproduced by Humboldt (1810). The first edition was by Kingsborough (1831-48) with paleography and English translation of the Italian text. Innumerable studies of Mexican Indian religion have commented on the cosmological section of the manuscript, particularly its drawings of the four world eras (Handbook of Middle American Indians volume 14 186-7).Condition:Light soiling, corners gently rubbed else a near fine copy.

        Geschichtliche Grundbegriffe. 8 Bände in 9 Bänden. Historisches Lexikon zur politisch-sozialen Sprache in Deutschland.

      Stuttgart: Klett-Cotta, 1979 - Gute Exemplare, Band 2 ohne Schutzumschlag. - Führende Wissenschaftler vieler Fakultäten (u. a. Ernst-Wolfgang Böckenförde, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht, Reinhart Koselleck, Christian Meier) untersuchen die zentralen Leitbegriffe der politisch-sozialen Welt: die tradierten vorrevolutionären Termini wie »Gesellschaft« und »Staat« oder die Neologismen wie »Kommunismus«, »Faschismus«oder »Antisemitismus« und schließlich die erst in und durch die Moderne zu Begriffen aufrückenden Vokabeln wie »Klasse«, »Bedürfnis«, »Fortschritt«und »Geschichte«. Dabei werden die weit über 100 ausgewählten Termini darauf befragt, wie sie sich im Laufe der Französischen und der Industriellen Revolution zu politisch-sozialen Leitbegriffen auskristallisieren und unser heutiges historisches Bewußtsein durchdringen konnten. Ja, man könnte so weit gehen, ohne diese Schlüsselbegriffe der politischen, wirtschaftlichen und gesellschaftlichen Organisation gebe es kein Geschichtsverständnis im modernen Sinn. Denn die leitende Prämisse der »Geschichtlichen Grundbegriffe« lautet: Geschichte schlägt sich in bestimmten Begriffen nieder und wird in ihnen überhaupt erst zur Geschichte. - Broschierte Ausgabe für 348 Euro lieferbar.

        A Bend in the River

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1979. First edition, first printing. Not Set. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to upper board and spine gilt. With the dust jacket Cloth a trifle marked but a very good copy in the somewhat beaten-up dust jacket. A presentation copy with the author's typically terse presentation inscription to the title page, "V S. Naipaul for Al Murray". Naipaul recalls in A Turn in the South, "I was given the name of a writer who had been educated at Tuskegee, Al Murray. He was, or had been, a protégé of Ralph Ellison's, and he lived in New Yorkâ?¦He was a brown man, and older than I had thoughtâ?¦Al had just turned seventyâ?¦His sitting room was full of books and records. A moment's looking showed that the books were a serious collection of twentieth-century American writing in first or very early editions."Al Murray, a Tuskegee-educated writer on jazz and one of those interviewed in "A Turn in the South," would later say, "Naipaul is like a satellite in orbit. He's got an objectivity that no one else has, and he knows that the past is an albatross." Proper inscribed, literary association copies of Naipaul's works are distinctly uncommon.

        Innocent Erendira and Other Stories

      Jonathan Cape 1979 - Gabriel Garcia Marquez (1979) ‘Innocent Erendira and Other Stories’. UK first edition, first printing published by Jonathan Cape, signed, inscribed ("Una flor de tu agradecido amigo [a flower from your grateful friend"]) with a drawing of a flower to the ffep. The book stems from the Shuttleworth estate and comes with a copy of the letter confirming its provenance. Martin Shuttelworth of the Paris Review was an influential literary critic who had good relation with many authors. Condition: like new. The only flaw is a tippexed previous owner’s name to the front past down. All else in fine condition. An exceptionally scarce title when signed. Most signed Erendiras are US first editions. Gabriel Garcia Marquez won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1982 at the tender age of 45. The characters from the short story appear in 'One Hundred Years of Solitude'. Eréndira was adapted for the cinema in 1983. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

A fascinating and quintessentially Provoke-style glimpse of the pop cultural mecca that is Tokyo's Shinjuku district. From Parr and Badger: "The combination of black and white with colour is interesting, because this is a difficult trick to pull off. The tension between Kitajima's flamboyant, contrasty, edgy monochrome and his matter-of-fact, understated colour makes this one of the most distinctive books in the wide bibliography on Shinjuku nightlife."

        THE BOOK OF THE HACKLE. By Frank Elder. De luxe leather-bound edition.

      Scottish Academic Press. Edinburgh. - 1979 1st edition. De luxe issue. 8vo (162 x 248mm). Ppxii,140,i + 5 leaves of hackles tipped-in at rear. Colour plates, b/w illustrations. Fully bound in maroon morocco leather, five raised bands to spine, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt, upper board and spine titled in gilt. Maroon paper-covered slipcase. Fine in slipcase. De luxe leather-bound edition limited to 85 copies only, this being copy number 16. Typed and numbered publisher's slip laid in. This is the handsomely produced deluxe leather-bound edition of Frank Elder's important book. Fully bound in maroon morocco gilt by A.W. Lumsden. Mounted in the rear of the book, on five leaves of black paper with gilt captions, are 29 hackles. "There are numerous books about almost every aspect of fly-fishing and while every book dealing with artificial fly must of necessity make reference to the hackle, few deal with the subject in any detail and no book has ever been written before on this all-important part of any dry-fly. Frank Elder has remedied this and in seeking to answer the fundamental question of what makes a 'good' hackle has produced an authoritative and original work which deals systematically with all aspects of the hackle - its purpose, shape, quality and colour as well as valuable notes on breeding for hackles and on their commercial supply." An invaluable reference book that remains extremely useful to the fly-tyer. Chapters include: How it began; Feather structure; The jungle cock; Dry-fly fishing - the imitation of the newly hatched dun; Colour; Quality; Shape; Hen hackles, saddles and spades; The commercial supply; Breeding for hackles; Preparing the cape. The author died shortly before the publication of his book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      KOMPLEKT. NrNr.1 182. Nr. 161 poslednij, napechatannyj v Germanii. Nr. 182 poslednij, vyshedshij v izd. Posev. NrNr. 1-3: Reprint, vyshedshij v izd. Posev v 1979 g. Pervye tri nomera vyshli v lagere dlja peremeshhennyh lic v Menhengofe i byli nabrany vruchnuju. NrNr: 6-7 Reprint, vyshedshij v izd. Posev v 1980 g. V 1946 g. v Menhegofe vyshli tri pervyh nomera zhurnala Grani. Ideju sozdanija zhurnala podal Sergej Sergeevich Maksimov, nazvanie pridumal Evgenij Romanovich Romanov, nachal'nik kul'turno-prosvetitel'nogo otdela v upravlenii lagerja. Boris Vital'evich Serafimov otvechal za politichesko-publicisticheskuju chast' zhurnala. V pervuju redkollegiju voshli hudozhniki, potomu chto ponachalu zhurnal byl illjustrirovannym. Pozdnee E.R. Romanov vspominal: V lagere Menhegof vyshli tri nomera. Zatem lager' byl podvergnut politicheskomu davleniju. Sovetskie repatriacionnye missii, kak volki, brodili vokrug lagerja Menhegof, kak chujali, chto tam rozhdalos'. Prodavalsja zhurnal za sigarety i kofe, sluzhivshie v poslevoennoj Germanii valjutoj, kotoroj peremeshhjonnyh lic snabzhali amerikancy. Hotja Grani izdavalis' Posevom, izdatel'stvom NTS, oficial'no zhurnal organom NTS nikogda ne byl. Odnako zhe, kak v obshhestvennom soznanii, tak i prakticheski, Grani neizbezhno ostanutsja zhurnalom NTS. Posle tret'ego nomera zhurnal byl zapreshhjon okkupacionnymi vlastjami, a v nachale 1947 likvidirovan lager' Menhegof. Odnako v tom zhe godu izdanie zhurnala bylo vozobnovleno v Limburge. Do 1951 goda, to est' do pereezda vo Frankfurt, Romanov delal zhurnal odin, inogda pomogal Maksimov. Grani vypolnjal funkciju publikatora svobodnogo slova pisatelej, poterjavshih nadezhdu na publikaciju na rodine. V 1956 g. publikuetsja Obrashhenie antikommunisticheskogo izdatel'stva Posev k dejateljam literatury, iskusstva i nauki poraboshhennoj Rossii, v kotorom pisateli, zhurnalisty, hudozhniki, uchenye prizyvalis' prisylat' (peredavat') svoi proizvedenija, ne mogushhie byt' napechatannymi v Sovetskom Sojuze po cenzurnym soobrazhenijam (Grani 32, 1956.

        New York City in 1979; to Jeanne's insulted beauty.

      1979.] 1979 - photocopy of typescript with one page original typescript bearing tipp-ex correction and holograph number, that page taped to verso of letterhead, 60 pp. printed on recto only, stapled at top right corner with neat tape reinforcement over staple on title page. Light wear to title page and final sheet, tail edge of two oversized sheets rubbed. With four published items featuring the story. [New York, n.p. A pre-publication copy of Acker's own correctedtypescript for the story 'New York City in 1979', which went on to winthe 1979 Pushcart Prize, making it her first critically acclaimed work. This document gives key insight not only into Acker's writing methods, but also raises interesting questions about the intended structure of the finished story, and highlights the mutable interpretations regardingthe published presentation of her prose writing, four differing versionsof which are included herein. In terms of form, the most marked difference betweenthe typescript copy and the published editions which followed is the way in which the text is divided into a series of passages or episodes, numbered at the head of the page. These can be full paragraphs or single sentences, or, for example, the word ?syphilis? which has an entire page to itself. This deliberate distribution of whitespace surrounding the single word (which in later editions is returned to the conventional layout of a sentence) adds nuance and valence to the story which is arguablyaltered in transcription. Included with this documentare four published editions of the story. The first, although not always credited thus, was inInternational Timesvol. 5 no 5. (January/February 1980). Run as ?New York City '79? over the centerspread, this version is closestto the typescript form. There is persuasive indication that the editors of I.T.were working from a similar photocopy, and whether instructed thus by Acker or not, they took the cut-up style of the piece at face value and ran it as a series of fragments differentiated fromone another by the use of typefaces, and with no cohesive order. Probably due to space constraints, this version is also heavily abridged, however the notable omissions ofthe three statements about lesbians suggests that there was also a degree of selective censorship at work here. The first publication of the complete text followed in July 1980 in the pages of San Diego magazineCrawl Out Your WindowIssue 7. Here, the sentences which run over multiple pages in the typescript are conventionalised into standard lines. There are also slight textual differences with a couple of additional sentences added. The first stand alone publication came inTop Stories9 (1981) which incorporated photographs by Anne Turyn. These images again mutate the text and raise further questions about Acker's editorial intention; the typescript title-page bears the uncompleted subheading ?Photographs by?, but gives no further allusions to this content. The final example is the 1991 Semiotext(e) collectionHannibal Lecter, My Father,which shows further textual edits. This copy was sent by Acker in late 1979 to friend and fellow experimental writer Paul Buck. The pages have clearly been xeroxed on several different machines with different paper stock and print qualities evident in different sections, and pp. 29 is an original typescript passage (with visible tipp-ex correction and numbered in holograph in Acker's distinctive hand) which has been taped onto the verso of a sheet of letterhead for ?Performing Artservices Inc., 463 West St NY?, an organisation that provided management and administrative services to avant-garde artists. In the key collection of Acker Papers at Duke University, there is a comparable copy described thus in their catalogue: ?60-page photocopied typescript, corrected in the photocopy, with original note on the title page, My Copy, by Acker? We have not been able to locate an original typescript, suggesting that this format with Acker's holograph corrections
