        Hand-made SIGNED Greetings Card, designed for the Harrison family.

      [Henley], n.d. [1980s]. George Harrison's own Christmas card, given to his groundskeeper. Dimensions 7 x 5.1 inches approx. Portrait format. Privately manufactured from card, foil, paper and metallic paint with a ribbon and tassel. Chiffon material soldered beneath a die-cut 'sun' motif with a hand-written seasonal message in gold ink in a Gothic calligraphic style on textured red paper pasted within the card. George has inscribed below, in blue ballpoint; 'To Maurice, Sylvia and Family / love from George'. Additionally signed below by Olivia and Dhani Harrison. Fine condition. The solar card design clearly refers to Harrison's spiritual view of 'the sun'; the worship of the sun as a deity is an important part of Hindu religion, to which Harrison had converted and to which he introduced his fellow Beatles; he practised meditation, met several gurus, embraced traditional Indian music and his ashes were scattered in the Ganges in a private ceremony according to his Hindu beliefs. In 1969, Harrison wrote 'Here Comes the Sun', one of his best-known tracks, which reflected the continued influence of Indian classical music on his songwriting.

        Final Terror (Original screenplay for the 1983 film)

      Comworld Pictures, Los Angeles 1980 - Draft script for the 1983 film. Seen here under the title "Bump in the Night." A low-budget slasher in which a group of friends go camping in the woods only to find that someone has begun picking them off (spoiler alert: it's one of the camper's mothers). Originally shot in 1981, the film would be held up for two years while seeking a distributor, which it eventually found due to the increasing fame of actors Rachel Ward, Darryl Hannah, and Adrian Zmed. Believing that the reason the film wasn't getting picked up for distribution due to the fact that it only had a three person body count, producer Joe Roth filmed an opening scene in which two unrelated characters are also killed in the woods.Shot on location in Crescent City, California. Lacking wrappers, presumably as issued. Title page present, dated September 9, 1980, with credits for screenwriters Jon George, Neill Hicks, and Ronald Shusett and story writers Jon George and Neill Hicks. 93 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 91. Photographically reproduced. Pages Very Good plus to Near Fine, bound with two gold brads.Weldon 1996. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Arbre et texte manuscrit. Photographie Originale de l'artiste

      Large original photographic portrait in black and white directed and shot by Marc Trivier.Unsigned silver print, like most of Trivier's works. Unique proof drawn by the artist.Photographs of artists, madmen, trees or slaughterhouses, Marc Trivier approaches all these subjects with a look as precise as intense."In its cosmogony, every thing, every being, vegetable, animal or human, deserves the same respect. For all are confronted with the same law of brass: loneliness. (Luc Desbenoit)The beauty that emanates from his photos comes from this nudity. There is no editing or cropping. We find in his work the same square format that traps our eyes in photographs where the makeup of color is rejected for an incisive black and white. Since all artificiality has disappeared, we are not dealing with the staging of a subject but with a presence exacerbated by the radiant and singular light, witness of a moment of life and not of pose. It is this light, linked to and obsessed with Trivier's medium, that gives his works the aura that makes them so present:"Of thirty-five years of photographic practice, of obsessions, it is perhaps that which remains: a singular mode of recording of the burning of light, declined from one image to another, in a succession propositions that are similar and yet each is as singular as the fraction of time to which it refers. (Marc Trivier)Warhol, Foucault, Beckett, Dubuffet ... the greatest writers and artists have posed for Trivier. At the same time, the artist is also interested in the margins of society, which men do not want to see. He then photographs the lunatics and slaughterhouses he places next to celebrities. By the end of the 1980s his work was unanimously recognized and he received the prestigious Young Photographer Award from the International Center of Photography in 1988 as well as the Prix Photographie Ouverte (Charleroi). After the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne, the Casino in Luxembourg, the European House of Photography in Paris devotes a major retrospective to him in 2011.

Original variant colors of cloth with black, respectively gilt lettering on spines with original photo-illustrated cream colored dustjackets. Frontispieces, three in color. "In 1902 the Egyptian Antiquities Service (now called the Supreme Council of Antiquities) granted permits for scientific excavations at the royal pyramids and private mastaba tombs of Giza. The American team under George A. Reisner (1867-1942), eventually became the Joint Egyptian Expedition of Harvard University and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in 1905, and continued almost uninterrupted until Reisner's death in 1942. The Expedition formally closed in 1947. Despite the publication of his monumental History of the Giza Necropolis I-II, Reisner was unable to see through the press an additional 5,000 pages of unpublished manuscript (Giza Necropolis II, III, IV), or begin the tomb-by-tomb publication series he originally envisioned. This task was initiated by William Kelly Simpson in the early 1970s in the form of the Giza Mastabas Series. The goal of the project is to continue and complete the publication of Reisner's excavations at Giza, fully documenting the mastaba tombs with descriptive text, hieroglyphic translations, facsimile line drawings, plans, sections, and photographs." (Museum of Fine Arts Boston). Monumental undertaking producing an exceptional publication with fascinating b/w photographs, plans and line drawings throughout, many of the figurative plates fold out. Previous owner's name inked to inside front cover of first, exlibris' in second and third volume. Light musty odor to first volume. DJs, bindings and interior in overall very good+ condition.
