        Beef Tabloid, Complete Run, Issues 1-22

      Omaha and San Francisco: Beefpackers 1980-1987 - Newsprint zines. Complete run of an unusual art, music and culture zine that began its life in Omaha, Nebraska before finding home in San Francisco. At it's height, Beef reported news from South America, Europe and Asia as well as the US. Founded by two vegetarian women artists recently transplanted to Omaha, Beef's punk and DIY aesthetic covered everything from social justice movements in Central America to interviews with from figures such as Yoko Ono, Philip Glass, Fela Kuti, Gary Panter and many other international art figures. The first ten larger format issues, produced in Omaha, have a particularly hermetic punk style, perhaps a product of the editors' relative cultural isolation. Beef ceased publication in 1987 after a threatened lawsuit from a ranching trade magazine bearing the same title. Uniformly close to near fine or better with circulation fold marks and normal wear and discoloration to the delicate newsprint. Includes many color poster inserts. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Archive of early American fireworks publications

      Soquel, California and Lexington, Kentucky: Various, 1980. Near Fine. A remarkable archive of American fireworks publications from 1966-1980 tracing the publishing history of a key "green man" and fireworks evangelist in the modern fireworks movement. Max P. Vander Horck started creating fireworks related publications in 1966 with "Pyronews" which lasted all of 14 issues, before disputes with the printer/publisher motivated Max to found his own publication "American Pyrotechnist" in 1968. He soon merged with "Firework News" published by Peter Colonnese, and together they ran the successful "American Pyrotechnist Fireworks News" from 1970 through 1976, at which point it was taken "in-house" by the Pyrotechnics Guild International, a guild founded along the way by Vander Horck and one that is still active today with over 3500 members according to their website. The archive contains 163 issues of Vander Horck's publications: Pyronews (14 issues, all published), American Pyrotechnist (33 issues, all published), American Pyrotechnist Firework News (69 issues, all published) and the first 40 issues of the American Pyrotechnist in it's second incarnation when it was owned by Pyrotechnist Guild International). For good measure, we include Fireworks News (7 issues, all published) which was printed by Peter Colonnense before he and Vander Horck joined forces. The whole stored in three clamshell cases with "American Pyrotechnist Fireworks News" printed on the spine. These publications are often short (4-8 pages) and offer up hints and guidance to amateurs and semi-professionals in the field. Very little if any advertising kept it focused on the evolving hobby and on things that mattered to subscribers (how to, chemical formulas, suppliers, emerging problems, news and regulations, convention news, etc). Some are period copies made to satisfy the demand for the early issues as interest in this hobby grew. Today's membership in PGI number more than 3500 - in Vander Horck's day it was closer to 300. Today the Bulletin and available back issues are only available to those with membership in PGI. Their archivist notes that PGI has "almost nothing left [for back issues] from the 70s and 80s, and few also from the 90s." One of the things we find most fun about these issues are the photographs of members holding what are no doubt highly explosive devices in each arm with a grin threatening to break the camera as they beam about their latest accomplishments. Always concerned about safety, these modern day "green men" were happily unencumbered by regulations during much of this time, and were able to just focus on what they loved. And it shows! "The Pyrotechnics Guild International was founded in 1969 by Max P. Vander Horck, then publisher of a monthly fireworks newsletter titled "American Pyrotechnist". Max envisioned the establishment of an organization for fireworks enthusiasts, whose goal would be not only to educate themselves regarding pyrotechnics, but the media, politicians and public as well. In March 1969 he announced to his subscribers that membership was available in a newly founded organization called the Pyrotechnics Guild International, and the PGI was born. The membership expanded for a few years and in 1974 a formal charter and bylaws were drawn up, officers elected, and formal incorporation accomplished (in Illinois), and the PGI became the PGI, Inc. Current membership stands at over 3,500. Members are from all walks of life, and range from people with just a passing interest all the way up to hard-core fireworks enthusiasts." (from the PGI website history section) Rare, with only a handful of these titles available in OCLC/Worldcat, nearly all at Brown University. No doubt old issues are kept "in house" in the Guild, and rarely find their way into the general market. A complete list of issues in the archive available upon request.

        Kohei Yoshiyuki. Document Park

      Sebun-sha, Tokyo 1980 - "Yoshiyuki was a young commercial photographer in Tokyo in the early 1970s when he and a colleague walked through Chuo Park in Shinjuku one night. He noticed a couple on the ground, and then one man creeping toward them, followed by another. "I had my camera, but it was dark," he told the photographer Nobuyoshi Araki in a 1979 interview for a Japanese publication. Researching the technology in the era before infrared flash units, he found that Kodak made infrared flashbulbs. Yoshiyuki returned to the park, and to two others in Tokyo, through the '70s. He photographed heterosexual and homosexual couples engaged in sexual activity and the peeping toms who stalked them." cm 21x26; pp. 90; BW ills.; paperback lacking the dust jacket.

        A Confederacy of Dunces (Review copy)

      Baton Rouge, Louisiana: Louisiana State University Press, 1980. First edition. Fine/Fine. One of just 2500 copies printed. A Fine copy of the book apparently unread and in excellent condition. In a Fine, crisp dust jacket without chips or tears and with bright, original colors, especially the blue lettering on the spine, which is very prone to fading. Review slip from the publisher laid in. A major work of American literature, the novel depicts the satirical adventures of Ignatius J. Reilly as he saunters around New Orleans, looking for work and railing against modern culture. The book was written in the early 1960s, but wasn't published until 1980, 11 years after Toole's suicide, when the author's mother took the manuscript to Walker Percy and essentially forced him to read it. "There was no getting out of it; only one hope remained-that I could read a few pages and that they would be bad enough for me, in good conscience, to read no farther... In this case I read on. And on. First with the sinking feeling that it was not bad enough to quit, then with a prickle of interest, then a growing excitement, and finally an incredulity: surely it was not possible that it was so good." Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1981. Fine in Fine. dust jacket.

The cover of the December 1980 issue of ""Interview"" magazine, published by Warhol, with a color portrait of Diana Vreeland, in apparent fine condition.Diana Vreeland (1903-1989) was a noted fashion columnist and editor for Harper's Bazaar (resigned) and Vogue (fired) magazines. From ""The Divine Mrs. V,"" a 2002 article in New York magazine: ""In her off hours, Vreeland was living very much in the present. Although she had a string of male companions to escort her around town, she was particularly fond of Fred Hughes, a prominent member of Andy Warhol's crowd whom Warhol described as 'one of the only young people around who insisted on Savile Row suits.' When Fred had flings with young women, Vreeland became jealous. Warhol, too, felt some jealousy; he complained that when Fred was drunk, he would 'talk like Mrs. Vreeland.' In 1986, long after Vreeland and Andy had stopped seeing each other regularly, Warhol wrote in his diary: 'I told Fred that the kitchen was dirty and he looked at me and said, ""Well, I'm not going to do the dishes."" Diana Vreeland has been a really bad influence on him. I should've broken that up.'"""

Near fine in a slightly less than near fine jacket, but better than very good, with the first state jacket showing an incremental amount of wear to the tips, a touch of wear to the jacket spine at crown and heel, some very light soiling, rubbing. A bit of the apparently inevitable fading along the top of the boards but not overly much. This copy inscribed and signed by Robinson on the half title. A solid, appealing copy of this wonderful novel, a sleeper that only very slowly gathered the acclaim and popularity it now enjoys. Quite nice.

        Three autograph letters signed in full to pianist and editor Alan Poulton

      - "From the same generation as Walton and Tippett, [Berkeley] has little connection with national traditions represented by them or by Elgar and Vaughan Williams earlier. This is partly because of his French ancestry and temperament which made him closer to Fauré, and to Ravel and Poulenc who were both personal friends. Berkeley admired Mozart above all, then Chopin, Ravel and the neo-classical Stravinsky. His own idiom is built from an overt melodic expression, usually rooted in tonality and allied to a fastidious command of harmony and orchestral texture. Religious subjects in particular invariably gave rise to vocal music of unusual spiritual intensity, a mood also reflected in his instrumental slow movements. Though he was at his most distinctive in the 1940s and 50s, the achievement of his later extended language is considerable. His is an enduring, cultivated and imaginative voice in 20th-century British music." Peter Dickinson and Joan Redding in Grove onlineAlan Poulton is the compiler and editor of A Dictionary-Catalogue of Modern British Composers, among other music reference works. Three intriguing letters, written between December 1980 and October 1981, in which Berkeley discusses the chronology of several of his compositions for a catalogue of Poulton's. 1) 1-1/4 pp. Small octavo. Dated Spetchley Park, Worcester, December 25, [19]80. In black ink. On white stationery with Berkeley's address and telephone number printed at head. "I feel sure that I would benefit greatly from a survey of my work to date such as you are doing for the composers you mention. I would like one of the possible contributors to be Peter Dickinson who has written the article on me in the New Grove. It might be as well to consult my publishers. J & W Chester. I should be glad to hear from you again." Creased at fold.2) 1-1/3 pp. Quarto. Dated London, September 24, [19]81. In black ink. On blue stationery with Berkeley's address and telephone number printed at head. Berkeley apologizes for his belated response. He discusses his Aubade for Organ. He will meet with his publisher, Chester, to discuss the order of his compositions after op. 96 and other queries. "I expect that most of your queries have been answered by now but some I will now try to answer. Aubade for Organ. This is the first of three pieces, Op 72 number 1. The other movements being Aria, and the last, Toccata. 'There was neither grass nor corn' would, as you suppose, have been written in 1949." Creased at fold.3) 1-1/2pp. Quarto. Dated London, October 15, [19]81. In black ink. On blue stationery with Berkeley's address and telephone number printed at head. Once again, Berkeley apologizes for his belated response, and answers several more of Poulton's queries. He will contact Chester for answers to others. He would be happy to meet Poulton in London or Worcester. He mentions the following compositions: Judica me, the first and second sonatas for Violin and Piano, and the Suite for Orchestra. "I know this sounds nonsensical, but I was dissatisfied with my first Violin & Piano Sonata and withdrew it. I then wrote another one – it was a considerable improvement, so I decided to make it my Opus 1 forgetting that it was called No.2 when published. I regard it as my first published work, so I think its best just to call it Op 1." Creased at folds.

        Discorsi di M. Giovambattista Giraldi Cinthio nobile ferrarese,... intorno al comporre de i Romanzi, delle Comedie, e delle Tragedie, e di altre maniere di Poesie. Con la tavola delle cose piu notabili in tutti essi discorsi contenute

      In 4to (cm 21,5); pergamena floscia coeva con titolo manoscritto al dorso, tagli colorati; pp. (8), 287, (29). Marca tipografica al titolo ed in fine. Capilettera e testatine istoriate. Bellissima copia marginosa.PRIMA EDIZIONE dell'importante contributo dato dal Giraldi alla teoria letteraria e alla codificazione di nuovi e vecchi generi (tragedia, tragicommedia, satira, egloga, commedia, romanzo, poema eroico), di cui egli stesso nel corso della sua carriera diede vari esempi (cfr. R. Bruscagli, G.B. Giraldi: comico, satirico, tragico, in "Il teatro italiano del Rinascimento", Milano, 1980, pp. 261 - 283). La presente edizione comprende sia il discorso Intorno al comporre delle commedie e delle tragedie (composto nel 1543), sia il discorso Intorno al comporre dei romanzi (scritto nel 1549 e dedicato a G.B. Pigna), che ebbero inizialmente solo diffusione manoscritta e che costituiscono una testimonianza fondamentale e imprescindibile per comprendere la grande stagione poetica della seconda metà  del secolo dominata dal Guarini e dal Tasso. Giraldi, pur prendendo spunto dalla Poetica di Aristotele, se ne distanzia fortemente, soprattutto nell'ambito del romanzo, che egli individua come un nuovo genere prettamente italiano, ma paragonabile al poema epico degli antichi, e che ha nell'Ariosto il suo modello principale (cfr. B. Weinberg, A History of Literary Criticism in the Italian Renaissance, Chicago, 1961, pp. 444 e 967). «Les premières tentatives de codification du roman eurent lieu en Italie, au début de la deuxième moitié du XVIe siècle, au cours d'une importante querelle qui opposa les partisans des anciens, favorables à  l'épopée telle qu'elle avait été définie par Aristote dans la Poétique , aux partisans des modernes, favorables aus poèmes chevaleresques (appelés également "romans") et dont les exemples les plus significatifs étaient à  l'époque le Roland amoureux de Boiardo, le Roland furieux de l'Arioste et l'Amadis de Bernard Tasse[...] Jean Georges Trissino, le plus influent des représentants des anciens, favorable en outre à  une interprétation rigide de la Poétique d'Aristote, affirme en effet dans l'épà®tre dédicatoire à  Charles Quint de son poème héroique L'Italie délivrée des Goths, publié en 1547 et en 1548, avoir voulu dans cette oeuvre (en polémique avec la multiplicité d'actions des poèmes chevaleresques) décrire une seule action d'un seul homme[...] Trois importants théoriciens ont répliqué, quoique d'une façon indirecte, à  Trissino: Simon Fornari, en 1549, dans sa Brève apologie du "Roland furieux" considéré dans son ensemble, Jean - Baptiste Giraldi, en 1554, dans son Discours sur la composition des romans, et Jean - Baptiste Pigna, toujours en 1554, dans Les Romans. Fornari et Pigna ne polémiquent toutefois nullement contre le Stagirite et s'efforcent au contraire de démonstrer que les poèmes chevaleresques (et, en particulier, le plus significatif d'entre eux, le Roland furieux de l'Arioste) peuvent fort bien être convenablement interprétés à  l'aide de catégories aristotéliciennes. Giraldi, par contre, affirme que les règles d'Aristote ne peuvent être valables dans le cas du roman, étant donné que ce sous - genre narratif n'était pas encore né à  l'époque où le Stagirite s'interrogeait sur la spécificité de la poésie, de la littérature» (G. Giorgi, a cura di, Les poétiques italiennes du «roman». Simon Fornari, Jean - Baptiste Giraldi Cinzio, Jean - Baptiste Pigna, Paris, 2005, pp. 11 - 13). Nel 1567, mentre si trovava a Torino, Giraldi regalò ad un gentiluomo, tale V. Troni, che gliene aveva fatto richiesta, l'unica copia in suo possesso della presente edizione. Si tratta dell'esemplare attualmente conservato a Ferrara, che reca fitte postille e correzioni di mano dell'autore (cfr. G.B. Giraldi, Discorsi intorno al comporre rivisti dall'autore nell'esemplare ferrarese Cl. I 90, a cura di S. Villari, Messina, 2002, pp. I - CLXV). G.B. Cinzio studiò dapprima medicina e filosofia, poi lettere umane, succedendo nella cattedra al maestro C. Calcagnini nel 1541. Durante il ducato di Ercole II d'Este e negli anni del circolo di Renata di Francia fu il protagonista incontrastato del panorama culturale ferrarese. Nel 1563, in seguito ad un contrasto avuto con i duchi della sua città , andò in volontario esilio prima a Mondovì, poi a Torino ed infine a Pavia. Fra i suoi allievi ricordiamo soprattutto G.B. Pigna, con il quale il Giraldi ebbe un violento scontro proprio in merito al discorso sui romanzi che il Pigna pubblicò nel 1554 (I Romanzi, Venezia, Valgrisi), suscitando le ire e le accuse di plagio del vecchio maestro (cfr. Weinberg, op. cit., pp. 433 - 452; inoltre G.B. Giraldi Cinzio, Discorso dei romanzi, a cura di L. Benedetti, G. Monorchio e E. Musacchio, Bologna, 1999, passim). La fama e l'influenza del Giraldi non si limitarono all'ambiente ferrarese, ma ebbero una risonanza europea. A lui si deve infatti la rinascita europea del teatro senechiano con le sue tinte fosche e le sue cruenze, in aperta opposizione alla formula trissiniana (cfr. P.R. Horne, The Tragedies of Giambattista Cinthio Giraldi, London, 1962, passim). \ Cfr. inoltre P. Cherchi, M. Rinaldi e M. Tempera, a cura di, Giovan Battista Giraldi Cinzio gentiluomo ferrarese, Firenze, 2008, passim. Edit16, CNCE21262. Adams , G - 701. Bongi, I, pp. 427 - 429. Weinberg, op. cit., p. 1129. J. Basso, Le genre épistolaire en langue italienne (1538 - 1662), Roma - Nancy, 1990, I, pp. 174 - 175 («La forme épistolaire tient une grande place dans ce discours»). \

        Ansicht des Moselthales oberhalb Trier, im Vordergrunde die Reste des römischen Amphitheaters."

      - Lithographie, auf cremefarbenem Velin. Darstellungsgröße 34,2:44,7 cm, Blattgröße 55,2:60,5 cm. Literatur: Aus Nagler 2; E. Zahn: Joh. Anton Ramboux in Trier, Trier 1980, Nr. 19, Abb. S. 50; Ausst. Katalog: D. Ahrens: Johann Anton Ramboux, Ansichten von Trier, Trier 1991, Nr. 4, Abb. 58. Blatt 3 – eines der beiden Hauptblätter – aus der berühmten Folge „Malerische Ansichten der merkwürdigsten Alterthümer und vorzüglicher Naturanlagen im Moselthale bey Trier", 1824-1827 veröffentlicht, erschienen mit dem Begleittext des Trierer Gelehrten und Bibliothekars Joh.H. Wyttenbach. Obwohl die Folge insgesamt in acht Heften mit je 4 Blättern erscheinen sollte, wurde sie wegen Mangels an Interesse nach dem vierten Heft eingestellt. Da die vier Hefte nicht einmal in öffentlichen Sammlungen komplett vorliegen, gehören sie heute zu den großen Raritäten, die die deutsche Romantik auf dem Gebiet der Graphik hervorgebracht hat. „Dieses Blatt gehört zu den schönsten romantischen Ansichten einer landschaftlichen Situation und wurde von Ramboux auch nur wegen dieses malerischen Gehaltes gezeichnet, wohl kaum wegen eines‚Alterthums’." (zit: aus: Zahn 1991, S. 48). J.L. David (1748-1825), dessen Schüler Johann Anton Ramboux in Paris 1808 bis Mitte 1812 war, stellte dem jungen Deutschen ein berühmt gewordenes Zeugnis aus, das die Wertschätzung, die Ramboux bei dem französischen Maler genoß, deutlich offenbart: „[.] ich muß zugeben, daß in der großen Zahl von Schülern, die ich ausgebildet habe, niemand in irgendeiner Zeit mehr Talent als der junge Ramboux gezeigt hat; und ich fürchte nicht, daß diesen schmeichelhaften Aussagen über ihn und seine Anlagen widersprochen wird; er ist geboren, um in dieser Kunst dem Lande, das ihn hervorgebracht hat, Ehre zu bringen." (zit: aus: Ausst. Katalog: H. Robels: Johann Anton Ramboux. Maler und Konservator 1790-1866, Köln 1966, S. 10).
