        Cerddi Robert Williams Parry 1884-1956

      Gwasg Gregynog, Y Drenewydd, Powys 1980 - Y Drenewydd, Powys: Gwasg Gregynog, 1980. Limited Edition. Quarter Leather. Near Fine. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. REDDICK Peter. In quarter green goatskin, blind rule, with green buckram boards, the title blind embossed on upper cover and titles in gold to spine. This is one of the 143 copies bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (stamp to fpd), (the remainder were by James Brockman), of an edition of 230 copies which was published in December at £112! (there were 15 specials). 282*175mm.

(Esslemont/Hughes 4). Parry, poet, univ. lecturer was well versed in English poetry, and came under the influence of the Romantic poets, especially Keats. He had a great deal in common with the Georgian poets, whose imagery is sometimes reflected in his poems. But in spite of all influences, Williams Parry's acute observation, his independent outlook and his meticulous attention to the mode of expression created a body of poetry which has its own special features and is a unique contribution to Welsh literature. Two volumes of his poetry were published, Yr Haf a cherddi Eraill in 1924, and Cerddi'r gaeaf in 1952 . See NLW WBO. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Photographs]: 1980s Punk Scene

      1980. Near Fine/Near Fine. A collection of 38 mostly black and white, with a few color, loose photographs measuring between 3.5" x 5" to 8" x 10" with captions. Slightly curled edges else near fine or better. A cache of early photographs from the 1980s punk scene including candids, publicity photos, and live photos. The photos include bands such as Flipper, Bad Religion, Social Distortion, The Meatmen, L7, Husker Du, Black Flag, T.S.O.L., The Undead, Flipper, Die Kreuzen, and 45 Grave, among others. The live shows are from dive bar shows to outdoor festivals showing on stage antics like Jack Grisham, singer of T.S.O.L., holding a microphone to his crotch, as well as Husker Du playing at Sam's bar with bassist Greg Norton sporting the band's own t-shirt, and an early L7 show. There is also a photo of the Dead Kennedys playing a show in Finland in 1981 which includes a random hand in the crowd giving the finger. Some of these appear to have been used for reviews and articles about the bands with notes on the verso like "please return after use," a photo of a young G.O.H. reads "notice our nice tans." The publicity photos from labels such as SST, Touch and Go, and Reflex were taken by some of the biggest names in the scene including Glen E. Friedman, Joe Cultice, Bobby Castro, and Michael Jang, and depict staged full band shots of the Meat Puppets, Black Flag, and Flipper, among others.An extensive assortment of unique images depicting the 1980s punk scene.

        Publication party for David Bailey's book 'Trouble & Strife' at the Ritz Hotel. David Bailely and Marie Helvin. 1980.

      - 745 x 520mm. Giclà e Print using Archival pigment inks on Hahnemüle Fine Art Pearl 285gsm paper. Limited edition of 10 numbered copies signed by the photographer. Alan Davidson is a press photographer based in London for more than 30 years, Alan has photographed the rich, the famous, the before-they-were-famous to those that have fallen from grace. Going through his vast archive, with new treasures found within the old brown manilla envelopes, reads like a who's who of the great and good (and the very bad) of London society. Cinema stars rub shoulders with pop stars, royalty with politicians. Working from the late 1960s to the present day Alan remembers the days before celebrities became surrounded by 30 young publicists and before there were 50 photographers at every event you went to, allowing him to take intimate and relaxed portraits, unlike the anodyne syndicated press shots of today.

"Enticing, imaginative, readable, iridescent" (The New York Times). It received the Hugo Award for Best Non-Fiction Book. It was also a thirteen-part television series written by Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan, and Steven Soter, with Sagan as presenter. It was executive-produced by Adrian Malone, produced by David Kennard, Geoffrey Haines-Stiles, and Gregory Andorfer, and directed by the producers, David Oyster, Richard Wells, Tom Weidlinger, and others. It covers a wide range of scientific subjects, including the origin of life and a perspective of our place in the universe. The series was first broadcast by the Public Broadcasting Service in 1980, and was the most widely watched series in the history of American public television until The Civil War. As of 2009, it was still the most widely watched PBS series in the world. It went on to win two Emmys and a Peabody Award, and has since been broadcast in more than 60 countries and seen by over 500 million people. It was followed-up by the 2014 documentary television series bearing the same name presented by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who, as a young high school student, was inspired by Sagan.

Daarna, schrijft Scharp, bragt [men] het nog lillend en trekkend lichaam op het schavot, hees het met touwen onder de armen op, hing het aan den hals, waar door de toegebragte wonde weder gaapte, en het bloed op nieuw vloeide bij het andere, waar mede hij geheel bedekt was. Buijnsters noemde het ophangen van de stervende jonge edelman een kras staaltje van omgekeerde klassejustitie. &#11;Van half april tot half mei 1796 had Scharp met de veroordeelde in zijn Rotterdamse gevangenis lange gesprekken gevoerd over geloof, wijsbegeerte en zedenleer, over de denkbeelden van de , 523, e en Engelse deïsten en atheïsten, over Goethes Werther en de grote gevaren van het sentimentele. De neerslag daarvan is in de zeer uitvoerige vierde en vijfde brief terug te vinden. Voor het boek, dat in 1796 verscheen, bleek een enorme belangstelling te bestaan. Hoewel de uitgever de oplaag van de eerste druk verdubbeld had tot 2200 exemplaren, was het in enkele maanden uitverkocht. Ook met de tweede druk ging het snel, zodat nog in 1797 een derde druk nodig was. Er verscheen bovendien een Engelse vertaling."

        Zniewolony Umysl. [The Captive Mind]

      [No place: no publisher, 1980. Near Fine. Samizdat edition. Quarto. 59, [1]pp. Illustrated publisher's illustrated wrappers. Pages toned, a few faint stains on the wrappers,overall near fine. Uncredited samizdat edition of Milosz's first writing after his defection to the West. First written in 1951, soon after he received political asylum in Paris, and it was first published in Paris in 1953, it immediately became a classic of anti-Stalinism. The nine essays deal with the different roles that the intellectuals take in the totalitarian dictatorship in post-war Central and Eastern Europe, their allure of Stalinism and the temptation of collaboration with the regime. The book was banned in Poland, and first published first in Eastern Europe in 1978 as an underground, samizdat edition. This edition is a photomechanically reproduced copy of the text of the 1953 Paris edition, four reduced pages of that edition printed on each page here. Rare.

        Cosmos.

      Editorial Planeta, Barcelona 1980 - First Spanish edition of one of the best-selling science books ever published. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers as issued. Inscribed by the author on the title page, "Por Cara Shirley Con amore y admiracion Carl." The recipient was Shirley Arden, who was the executive secretary to Sagan and close friends of Sagan. Cosmos is the best-selling science book ever published in the English language. Brilliant and provocative, it traces today's knowledge and scientific methods to their historical roots, blending science and philosophy in a wholly energetic and irresistible way. "Enticing, imaginative, readable, iridescent" (The New York Times). It received the Hugo Award for Best Non-Fiction Book. It was also a thirteen-part television series written by Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan, and Steven Soter, with Sagan as presenter. It was executive-produced by Adrian Malone, produced by David Kennard, Geoffrey Haines-Stiles, and Gregory Andorfer, and directed by the producers, David Oyster, Richard Wells, Tom Weidlinger, and others. It covers a wide range of scientific subjects, including the origin of life and a perspective of our place in the universe. The series was first broadcast by the Public Broadcasting Service in 1980, and was the most widely watched series in the history of American public television until The Civil War. As of 2009, it was still the most widely watched PBS series in the world. It went on to win two Emmys and a Peabody Award, and has since been broadcast in more than 60 countries and seen by over 500 million people. It was followed-up by the 2014 documentary television series bearing the same name presented by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who, as a young high school student, was inspired by Sagan.

        Church Poems. With illustrations by John Piper. (FIRST STATE, DELUXE ISSUE)

      John Murray, London 1980 - The deluxe issue of the withdrawn first edition, of which one hundred copies were produced and bound, and virtually all destroyed prior to publication. This copy signed on the colophon by John Betjeman, but not numbered, and without Piper's signature, who presumably was due to sign them later. Due to a production error, the last seven lines of the poem 'Bristol and Clifton', the two full pages of the poem 'Sunday Afternoon Service in St Enodoc Church, Cornwall' were omitted, resulting in both the trade issue and this deluxe issue being destroyed and corrected editions issued the following year. John Murray claimed that all but half a dozen copies of the trade edition were destroyed, although the actual number of survivors is almost certainly higher. This deluxe edition is certainly a great deal scarcer, Peterson identified a surviving typescript (the printer's copy) of the colophon sheet, so signed by Betjeman and with a note by Murray stating that "The signed copy also had to be destroyed of Church Poems!" This present copy however, formally belonging to Dorothy Couzens [née Liptrap], a production assistant and some-time illustrator at John Murray Ltd. between 1960-1985, is the entire text, cut from the watered silk binding (presumably re-cycled for the corrected edition) and with the original marbled endpapers now serving as makeshift wrappers. 8vo. 63pp. Top edge gilt. A very good copy - scarce as proverbial hen's teeth, this being quite probably the only surviving example of the deluxe issue of the withdrawn text.
