        FROM GARDEN TO GALAXY

      London: Bertram Rota, [1980].. Quarto. Gilt decorated pebbled morocco by George Percival, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Fine in slipcase. First edition of the sixth in the sequence of Lubbock's artist's books, limited to eighty numbered copies, printed by Will Carter at the Rampant Lions Press, and signed by the author/artist. The illustrative matter consists of six double-page and six single-page handprinted copperplates by Lubbock, with colors applied by intaglio and relief, with additional color highlighting applied by hand. Accompanied by the original prospectus (a bit rumpled). "The motives of the prints range from the artist's garden to the mountains of central Asia and are accompanied by thoughts on that which lies beneath the appearance of meadow, sea or mountain, such as the processes of growth and their relationships to the universe."

        Proximity: A Led Zeppelin Newspaper [run of nine early issues]

      Issaquah and Seattle: Proximity, 1980-1983. A significant, early run of Proximity, comprising the first two years of publication. Proximity was one of the earliest Led Zeppelin fanzines, with the first issue being published during the final year the band was still together, just prior to John Bonham's death and their subsequent break-up. It began under the editorship of Juli LeCompte, and gradually came to include Hugh Jones, who emerged as a major contributor to the publication. Richly illustrated with photos, tour information, discography, and articles. While Proximity was published well into the late 1990's, after the first few years the title was changed to Proximity: A Led Zeppelin Collector's Journal, and among the later publications, both the content and context became further removed from the quality of the earliest issues. Quite scarce; OCLC shows no holdings for early issues of Proximity, with a single institutional holding for later issues dating from the mid-1990's on. Nine tabloid issues (29 x 44.5cm), offset printed on recto and verso. Light toning, with a single fold at the center of each newspaper, as issued; about Fine.

        Typed Letter Signed, with If All Else Fails.

      Doubleday, Garden City 1980 - A full-page letter from Strete to another writer, in part transmitting a copy of his book If All Else Fails (included here). In the letter, Strete laments the science fiction classification the book received, touches on recent kidney troubles that landed him in the hospital, recommends his recipient connect with Jamake Highwater, and expresses displeasure with Doubleday and their offer for Death in the Spirit House (although Doubleday did eventually publish that novel). The bulk of the letter, however, concerns Strete's attempt to enlist the recipient in (while simultaneously warning him about) a suggested trip north for a vision quest "guided by a shaman who is left sided as I am. I know for certain though that I myself could take you to a place where you could see Saquatch and a few other things you have not seen, not even in dreams. It would be dangerous for us both. I was up there this summer and saw the one who has no name. I hate going up there. It takes me years to get over the nightmares. There are things in this world that are truly evil." Strete says that he has been working for seven years on a book about his experiences with shamans that he hopes will be published after he's dead. The letter is on personal stationery, signed by Strete, and is folded in half to fit into the book; near fine. The book, If All Else Fails., is fine in a near fine dust jacket with a lower edge tear at the front flap fold. Introduction by Jorge Luis Borges, who calls the book "a collection of small nightmares of great consequence." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Concept Sports/Racing Car

      - c. 1980. Mixed media on paper, cut out and laid on a larger sheet. Signed, "Dom Pacitti". 9 1/4 x 25 inches, visible. Framed. 17 1/2 x 32 3/4 inches. The epitome of the American sports car by car stylist, Dom Pacitti That car racing has influenced car design is as interesting as it is obvious because the modern American sports car itself embodies not just aerodynamics but also the sense of danger, the antagonism of competition, the thrill of triumph and superiority of motor racing. This smooth, sleek, dark car conveys an image of latent power that is as unmistakably American as an extravagant science fiction movie. Its dark blue with purple highlights and black windows imply stealth and unsularity, as well as impeccable craftsmanship.

        Music for Chameleons

      US: Random House. New York, Random House, 1980. Hardback edition limited to 50 copies. Each copy was signed, some with personal inscriptions, by the author to his friends and family. This is number 17 with no personal inscription. The book and slipcase (which is a different colour to the more common signed edition of 350 copies) are in near fine condition. There are signs of ageing to the slipcase and some lightening to the spine. Overall though it's a nice copy of a very scarce book. On its release this short story / essay collection was massively popular. Not perhaps as easily recognisable as Breakfast at Tiffany's or In Cold Blood, but with such a small print run certainly an important modern first. . Near Fine. Hardback. Limited Edition. 1980.

        Flatland. A Romance of Many Dimensions

      San Francisco: Arion Press, 1980. Tall 4to, original aluminum covers stamped in black, contained in an aluminum frame with hinged top with clasp, lettered in black along one edge. 56 accordion-style folded panels, comprising 112 pp. 14 line illustrations and 10 mounted die-cut panels by the printer, Andrew Hoyem, after designs by the author. A fine copy. First edition in this format, published in an edition of 275 copies, signed by Ray Bradbury at the end of his introduction, and by Andrew Hoyem in the colophon. This tale about the inhabitants of a two-dimensional world and their difficulties with one-dimensional and three-dimensional beings has never gone out of print since it was first printed in 1886. ÒThe great classic of dimensional thought, this has been a highly influential work in science-fiction. It is very nicely written, amusing, logical, and easy to follow. It is still much the best of the various books that have explored life in worlds of fewer dimensions than oursÓ (Bleiler, Science-Fiction. The Early Years, 2). This is perhaps technically the most elaborate or complicated of all the Arion Press books to date; it was the seventh production of HoyemÕs Arion Press and has long been one of the most difficult, though less costly than the livres dÕartiste, to acquire. The text pages and illustration units measure 7 x 14 inches and are joined accordion-style to a length of 33 feet printed on each side, making a 66-foot long book. Although Abbott was a brilliant teacher and scholar, DNB notes Òhe is most remembered as the author of Flatland: a Romance of Many Dimensions, published under the pseudonym of A Square in 1884. At once a lesson in higher dimensional geometry, a social satire, and an expression of religious principle, this work gives lasting testimony to Abbott's genius as a teacher and to his literary and moral imagination.Ó&

        The Indian In The Cupboard

      London: J.M. Dent, 1980. First edition, first printing of the author's most beloved title and one that has went on to sell over 10 million copies. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by Lynne Reid Banks. Fine in a fine dust jacket with only light shelfwear to the dust jacket. An excellent copy. The Indian in the Cupboard was originally published by Doubleday/Avon (U.K.) in 1980, and it was immediately rated "the best novel of the year" then "best children's book of the year" by The New York Times. Its enduring status as a classic is confirmed by its use within the teaching curricula for children's reading. The story is of a young man who a present that will change his life: a plastic miniature Indian that magically comes to life inside a mysterious old cupboard. Magic is not a feature of the plot solely but an effect to inspire children readers. Indeed, Publisher Weekly praised it as "Skyhigh fantasy that will enthrall readers.

        A People's History of the United States

      New York: Harper & Row, 1980. First edition, first printing of the historian's magnum opus. Thick Octavo. Signed by the author, who has transcribed the last line, "If we understand that, and act on it, not only will life be more satisfying, right off, but our grandchildren and our great-grandchildren might possibly see a different and marvelous world. Howard Zinn". Near fine in a very good dust jacket. "A brilliant and moving history of the American people" (The Library Journal). Uncommon, especially signed. The New York Times wrote that author "[p]rofessor Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history, and his text is studded with telling quotations from labor leaders, war resisters and fugitive slaves. There are vivid descriptions of events that are usually ignored, such as the great railroad strike of 1877 and the brutal suppression of the Philippine independence movement at the turn of this century. Professor Zinn's chapter on Vietnam-bringing to life once again the free-fire zones, secret bombings, massacres and cover-ups-should be required reading for a new generation of students now facing conscription." Howard Fast added this when he declared A People's History to be "[o]ne of the most important books I have ever read in a long life of reading...It's a wonderful, splendid book--a book that should be read by every American, student or otherwise, who wants to understand his country, its true history, and its hope for the future.

        Lettre autographe signée à l'écrivain Christian Maurel [28 novembre 1980]

      Lettre. Très bon. Couverture souple. Signé par l'auteur. Ed. originale. Nice, 28 novembre 1980. 1 p. in-8, 16 lignes. Belle lettre à propos de L'Exotisme colonial (livre de photographies d'archives avec un longue préface de Christian Maurel, paru chez Robert Laffont en 1980). "Merci, cher Christian Maurel, pour ce beau livre d'images, où on retrouve en effet quelque chose de la fascination (beauté, horreur et mystère) de Marseille d'autrefois, quand arrivaient les paquebots, les cargos, les trains. On apprend beaucoup de choses en regardant ces images, entre autres que la cruauté involontaire (ou parfois volontaire) de ce regard colonial avait du moins le mérite de créer un spectacle, alors qu'aujourd'hui, depuis que l'exotisme est quotidien, la cruauté banale et l'asservissement de l'homme tendant à l'universel, il ne reste plus rien, même plus l'art de la mise en scène. Restent les souvenirs, dans lesquels on peut voyage en rêve. Grâce à vous.".

        Bat Bean Bag Toy

      (Middle Falls, NY): Toy Works, 1980. This bean bag toy of a bat with outstretched wings measures approximately fifteen inches from wingtip to wingtip. The fabric is printed with a black and white crosshatched pattern that is shaded on the wings and body to give the figure more dimensionality, evoking Gorey’s characteristic drawing style. The wings are stiffened and stitched along the folds. The bat also has glittering red rhinestone eyes. This is one of five bean bag animals in a collection designed by Edward Gorey and produced by Toy Works; it is also the largest of these toys. Although the toys in this series are not all necessarily characters from Gorey’s works, this bat appears to be inspired by his designs for a 1977 production of Dracula. Fine.
