        1980 Archive of Long Island Nude Beach Photographs

      [New York]. 1980. Approximately 700 different color snapshot images of beachgoers on a very crowded Long Island beach in 1980. Each image is approximately 3.5" x 5". Virtually all are on Kodak paper and date stamped on the back in either June or July of 1980. Condition is generally near fine or better, several have remnants from having been mounted in an album, perhaps a couple dozen have wear or staining on the emulsion, but are still easily viewable.There is no obvious evidence of exactly where the beach was, but someone more familiar with Long Island beaches would probably be able to determine that, the products, t-shirts (including one for Plato's Retreat, another for the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics), regional beers, and other clues (frisbee advertising Niagra Falls, etc.) strongly suggest a New York City-area beach, presumably on Long Island, and possibly Jones Beach. The very crowded and not particularly tidy beach was presumably clothing optional as a majority (but not all) of the sun worshippers are either partially or fully naked. The photographer seemed particularly interested in the female form. The candid images suggest that many who were happy to be photographed, with a few looking at least mildly annoyed by the attention, and a few more intimate shots that were presumably taken surreptitiously. Apparently the beach was something of a phenomenon, as a few shots show photographers, a television crew, a (possibly news) helicopter, and a boatload of gawkers on the outskirts of the beach, as well as a mounted policeman.The crowd represents a broad cross section of the population: racially, economically, age-wise, and by sexual orientation, although the ratio of images of affectionate lesbians seems a little inordinate to the rest of the images - presumably for the titillation of the (almost certainly male) photographer. Additionally there are a modest number of heterosexual affection on display, although in very few or perhaps even none of the cases do the affections displayed seem strictly pornographic.In any event a very interesting time capsule-type cross section of a clothing optional beach in Long Island definitively dated to 1980, the year of Abscam, the beginning of the presidency of Ronald Reagan, and the death of John Lennon. .

        Selected Plays., Illustrated by Herbert Tauss.

      Franklin Mint Corporation, Pennsylvania, The Franklin Library, 1980 - 565 Seiten mit Lesebändchen, die unteren Ecken des Einbandes minimalst bestossen, der Goldschnitt mit kleinen Kartzern, das Buch ansonsten sauber und frisch, auf dem Vorsatz Signatur des Autors. This limited edition of Selected Plays by Tennessee Williams has been privately printed, and individually signed by the author. Tennessee Williams (* 26. März 1911 in Columbus/USA - + 25. Februar 1983 in New York City; eigentlich Thomas Lanier Williams III) war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Den Spitznamen „Tennessee" erhielt er von Collegefreunden an der University of Missouri, weil er den Akzent, der im Bundesstaat Tennessee gesprochen wird, sprach. Seine Großeltern, bei denen er oft und gern zu Besuch war, lebten immer noch dort, was für seinen Akzent prägend war. Das in Hollywood zunächst abgelehnte Script für Die Glasmenagerie markierte 1944 in Chicago Williams’ ersten Bühnenerfolg. Das Stück Die tätowierte Rose (seinem Lebensgefährten Frank Merlo gewidmet) erhielt den Tony Award als bestes Schauspiel. Es wurde 1950 ebenfalls in Chicago uraufgeführt. Kritiker definieren den Stil seiner Schauspiele als „Southern Gothic" („Südstaatengotik"). 1948 und 1955 wurde Williams für seine Stücke Endstation Sehnsucht („A Streetcar Named Desire") und Die Katze auf dem heißen Blechdach („Cat On a Hot Tin Roof") mit dem Pulitzerpreis.

        The ultimate fully signed J D Salinger letter commenting on his seminal book "The Catcher in the Rye": "I do indeed take your brother Tim's assessment of The Catcher in the Rye as 'subjective' as a compliment "

      [Cornish, New Hampshire?], March 10, 1980. 8vo. "Rare Typed letter signed ""J D Salinger"", one page, 8vo, March 10, 1980. In part: ""I do indeed take your brother Tim's assessment of 'The Catcher in the Rye' as 'subjective' as a compliment. A high and entirely comfortable compliment. It happens that I know a couple of people who privately, lonelily reconstitute words to suit themselves, finding the usual context unacceptable or unlikeable...He then goes into a rather detailed explanation of incursions on his privacy. Because of the litigious nature of Mr. Salinger when alive and possibly his family now, only parts of the letter will be quoted here. Includes 16 pages of copies, never before released, which include letters to and from Eagleson. In September of 2015 a single page letter of Salinger mentioning only ""Zooey"" and not nearly of the content of the one here ,fetched $27,500 . In over 25 years at major Public auctions not letter has ever been offered that directly quoted the title of ""The Catcher in the Rye"". Many of his best letters are not signed signed with pseudonyms, or some abbreviated signature. Fine."

        Collection of approximately 30 typed and autograph letters and postcards from Helen G. Coates, Bernstein's first piano teacher and personal assistant for most of his adult life, to Madeline Hsu (Forte), pianist and wife of musicologist Allen Forte

      - "Bernstein’s legacy looms large in each area that he worked. West Side Story remains his most important work, but his mastery of the Broadway idiom is just as clear in his other shows. Mass remains a powerful piece and is finding new audiences. Bernstein’s concert music includes many enduring works, especially Chichester Psalms, and orchestral pieces based upon his popular shows also continue to be programmed. His fame as a conductor has barely diminished since his death, and many of his recordings remain critically and commercially popular. That he will also be remembered as one of America’s most important musical educators seems certain." Paul R. Laird and David Schiff in Grove onlineCoates was Bernstein's first piano teacher of note; he began his studies with her at the age of 14. The letters, written ca. 1980-85, are particularly interesting for Coates's comments on the music and activities of Bernstein during the period. The correspondence also discusses the legacy of the pianist and teacher Rosina Lhevinne as well as other musical and personal matters. Included are 3 letters from Lhevinne's student and video-biographer Salome Arkatov.

        1980 Archive of Long Island Nude Beach Photographs

      [New York]. 1980. Approximately 700 different color snapshot images of beachgoers on a very crowded Long Island beach in 1980. Each image is approximately 3.5" x 5". Virtually all are on Kodak paper and date stamped on the back in either June or July of 1980. Condition is generally near fine or better, several have remnants from having been mounted in an album, perhaps a couple dozen have wear or staining on the emulsion, but are still easily viewable.There is no obvious evidence of exactly where the beach was, but someone more familiar with Long Island beaches would probably be able to determine that, the products, t-shirts (including one for Plato's Retreat, another for the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics), regional beers, and other clues (frisbee advertising Niagra Falls, etc.) strongly suggest a New York City-area beach, presumably on Long Island, and possibly Jones Beach. The very crowded and not particularly tidy beach was presumably clothing optional as a majority (but not all) of the sun worshippers are either partially or fully naked. The photographer seemed particularly interested in the female form. The candid images suggest that many who were happy to be photographed, with a few looking at least mildly annoyed by the attention, and a few more intimate shots that were presumably taken surreptitiously. Apparently the beach was something of a phenomenon, as a few shots show photographers, a television crew, a (possibly news) helicopter, and a boatload of gawkers on the outskirts of the beach, as well as a mounted policeman.The crowd represents a broad cross section of the population: racially, economically, age-wise, and by sexual orientation, although the ratio of images of affectionate lesbians seems a little inordinate to the rest of the images - presumably for the titillation of the (almost certainly male) photographer. Additionally there are a modest number of heterosexual affection on display, although in very few or perhaps even none of the cases do the affections displayed seem strictly pornographic.In any event a very interesting time capsule-type cross section of a clothing optional beach in Long Island definitively dated to 1980, the year of Abscam, the beginning of the presidency of Ronald Reagan, and the death of John Lennon. .

        War Within and Without: Diaries and Letters of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, 1939-1944

      New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich 1980 - 8vo., gray boards and blue cloth lettered in gilt; pictorial dust jacket; with a touch of rubbing. First edition. A presentation copy, inscribed: "To Lois and Phil Jessup with my gratitude for their encouragement in my finishing this book, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, April 20, 1980," on the title page; Lindbergh mentioned Jessup in the volume. ---- The recipient, Philip C. Jessup, a judge on the International Court of Justice and veteran U.S. diplomat, was credited with playing a major role in ending the Soviet blockade of West Berlin. Jessup was a U.S. representative to the United Nations General Assembly, as well as a member of the International Court of Justice at The Hague. He also served as a U.S. ambassador at large from 1949 until his resignation in 1953. During that time, he was one of the closest advisers of then-Secretary of State Dean Acheson. After Jessup was maligned by Senator Joe McCarthy for purported communist "affinities," General Dwight D. Eisenhower heralded Jessup's "devotion to the principles of Americanism." McCarthy's charges kept Jessup from being reappointed to the U.S. delegation to the United Nations in 1951 but President Harry S. Truman made him an alternate delegate the following year. A significant presentation copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        People One Knows: Interviews with Insufficiently Famous Americans

      Northridge, California: Lord John Press. 1980. First. First edition. Quarter leather and cloth in slipcase. Fine. This is the Publisher's Copy, so designated in letterpress type and is Inscribed by Updike to the publisher: "for Herb Cheers John." Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association. .
