        Kaliflower: Volume 5

      San Francisco: Free Print Shop, 1980. iv, 256 p., openweave cloth boards with artistic depiction of female face on cover, her wildly twisting hair decipherable as the title. Extensively and beautifully illustrated in colors. Very faint soiling of casebinding in several small spots, otherwise very good. Brief inscription on p. 256 states that this copy was given as a gift by "Sam" and Irving [Rosenthal]. 10x12 inches. "This book is a culling from Kaliflower, a small weekly newspaper hand-delivered to communes in the San Francisco Bay Area from April 24, 1969 to June 22, 1972." Kaliflower was distributed from headquarters on Sutter Street, intended to circulate only within the commune community. Its sale was prohibited. Themes range from communal economics and interpersonal relations to directions on wiping one's ass; from food fads to a personal memoir of gay group-masturbation sessions - in short, all aspects of life within the group. Some pieces that were originally published in prose have been re-worked into comic strip format.

Most of the photos after show him during his time at Georgetown University with shaggy hair and a full beard. Several pictures show the tall churches and student parking lots that filled the view from outside of Henle Student Village where Cunningham's dorm room was located. One photo shows Cunningham dancing with his later wife Rachel Grant. These photos feature only smiles and the happiness that Cunningham had during his collegiate years. The photos of Cunningham at his graduation show him wearing a cap and gown and also crutches and a leg cast. Even with the cast, Cunningham has a smile in every photo.Cunningham went on to earn a law degree from Seton Hall University School of Law.

        Harmolodics - an autograph musical manuscript.

      New York: , c.1980. Folio, single leaf of musical score paper extracted from original comb-bound volume, printed staves, titled and with eight lines of musical notation in brown felt-tip. A little browned, some light soiling, "sneaker" print verso?, top corners creased and small piece of cellophane tape top right, but overall very good. A remarkable piece, we can trace no other Ornette Coleman musical manuscript ever having appeared on the market. Written in brown felt-tip, the sheet is inscribed lower right in black ink: "To Anthony / Thanks For Everything / Ornette Coleman." Harmolodics was the name that Coleman gave to his unique musical philosophy and compositional/improvisational method, which he enigmatically defined as "the use of the physical and the mental of one's own logic made into an expression of sound to bring about the musical sensation of unison executed by a single person or with a group", which applied specifically to music means that "harmony, melody, speed, rhythm, time and phrases all have equal position in the results that come from the placing and spacing of ideas" (Ornette Coleman, "Prime Time for Harmolodics" in Down Beat, July 1983, pp. 54-5). It has been suggested that Coleman drew on Boulez's concept of aleatory music for harmolodics, while early Coleman advocate Gunther Schuller suggested that it is based in the superimposition of the same or similar phrases, thus developing polytonality and heterophony. Coleman was apparently working on an expository text on harmolodics from the 70s, but this has never appeared, and the only full-ish explanation is contained in the article quoted above. He also used the name "Harmolodic" for his record label. Ornette Coleman, (1930 - 2015), was one of the most powerful and contentious innovators in the history of jazz, his work was publicly dismissed by many of the previous generation of iconoclasts, such as Monk and Miles, but actively promoted by the impeccably restrained John Lewis. Probably the best summation of the paradoxical paradigm that was Ornette Coleman comes from Mingus who said: "Now aside from the fact that I doubt he can even play a C scale in whole notes - tied whole notes, a couple of bars apiece - in tune, the fact remains that his notes and lines are so fresh. So when Symphony Sid played his record, it made everything else he was playing, even my own record that he played, sound terrible" ('The Blindfold Test', Downbeat, 28/4/1960). This piece from the collection of Anthony Murrell. Introduced to Ornette Coleman by Don Cherry, with whom he shared a loft on Christy St., Murrell assisted Coleman in sorting and archiving materials when he bought the former Public School #4, at 203 Rivington Street at Pitt on the Lower East Side in 1981, and was in the process of moving into a top-floor classroom. Coleman extracted the sheet from the material that they were working through, and inscribed it for Murrell.

Probably the best summation of the paradoxical paradigm that was Ornette Coleman comes from Mingus who said: "Now aside from the fact that I doubt he can even play a C scale in whole notes - tied whole notes, a couple of bars apiece - in tune, the fact remains that his notes and lines are so fresh. So when Symphony Sid played his record, it made everything else he was playing, even my own record that he played, sound terrible" ('The Blindfold Test', Downbeat, 28/4/1960). This piece from the collection of Anthony Murrell. Introduced to Ornette Coleman by Don Cherry, with whom he shared a loft on Christy St., Murrell assisted Coleman in sorting and archiving materials when he bought the former Public School #4, at 203 Rivington Street at Pitt on the Lower East Side in 1981, and was in the process of moving into a top-floor classroom. Coleman extracted the sheet from the material that they were working through, and inscribed it for Murrell. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Songs from the Stars

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1980. The original typed manuscript: the setting copy with all the editor's and proof-reader's marks. Complete book: 400 pages, 4to. Predominantly mechanically reproduced leaves, with some original typescript insertions. Original typed insertion leaves include those for the Dedication to David Hartwell; the leaf listing other books by Spinrad; and the About the Author leaf. The editorial corrections average some ten per page, and there are occasional annotations in Spinrad's hand. Songs from the Stars was Spinrad's ninth novel. Kirkus wrote: "Earth is in the post-Smash era: much of the northern hemisphere east of California is radioactive; tribes are now divided between white and black sorcery (science); chief transport is helium-winged hang gliders with pedals. Clear Blue Lou, something of a legal circuit rider, sails over to the Sunshine tribe to settle a dispute among rival Aquarians but himself settles into the druggy, free-sex nightlife for a spell before finding himself seduced by Sunshine Lou--a queen of the Word of Mouth communication network who knows (thanks to black sorcery) that her karma and Clear Blue Lou's will combine to reveal heavenly harmonies to Aquarians by means of a Big Ear satellite circling Earth with Songs from the Stars. First, however, C. B. Lou and S. Lou must accompany black sorcerer Harker to Big Ear, where they find the satellite crew dead. Debates on communications and karma ensue. Gassy."

        Waiting for the Barbarians.

      London: Secker & Warburg, 1980. Second printing preceding the South African first of this modern classic. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by J.M. Coetzee on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket with a touch of toning to the spine. Waiting for the Barbarians is an allegory of oppressor and oppressed. Not just a man living through a crisis of conscience in an obscure place in remote times, the Magistrate is an analogue of all men living in complicity with regimes that ignore justice and decency. "I have known few authors who can evoke such a wilderness in the heart of a man.... Mr. Coetzee knows the elusive terror of Kafka" (Bernard Levin, The Sunday Times).

        Word.

      Crown Point Press., Oakland, California. 1980 - Artist book, published in an edition of only 10 copies (+6 artistÕs proofs), each numbered and signed by Steir on the final blank. Whilst the prints were executed in 1977, and dated as such, the book was not published until 1980. Pat SteirÕs quiet, early works - word/image prints inspired by the randomness of John CageÕs musical compositions both in design and subtlety - challenged definitions of art, and particularly printmaking and drawing. Abstract marks, images, and words are scattered across the sheet with equal weight. Having written poetry before learning to paint, Steir considers drawing and writing as one and the same. Throughout the 1970s Steir narrowed her research to focus on art itself, making drawings and prints in her own version of MinimalismÕs geometric and serial formats, exploring the parameters of a mark with a drawn frame. The artist book ÔWordÕ is symptomatic of this early period in SteirÕs career, with its focus on the study of details in language. She examines the differences between words and images, and presents isolated words and images within the regulated grids of her prints. Illustrated with five drypoint etchings, the final one with aquatint. Each of the prints are dated (1977) and signed by the artist with her initials in pencil. Each are additionally hand-coloured by the artist, mostly by notations added in the margins of the prints. Bound in original printed boards by Kevin Parker. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Prominent members of New York's No Wave film scene and, along with Amos Poe and Eric Mitchell, progenitors of the Cinema of Transgression, Beth and Scott B were a pivotal and galvanizing force in that era's explosion of punk-political filmmaking. "The Trap Door," specifically, captured this creative and collaborative era of New York underground art.11" x 17" inches. Verso with corners briefly bruised from tape removal, else Near Fine.
