        The Dream Of The Dirty Woman: A Play In One Act Based On A Dream Of Elka Schumann With A Record Of The Performance [in Box]

      Newark, Vermont: The Janus Press. Near Fine with no dust jacket. 1980. First Edition. Hardcover. Color Illustrations; Title: The Dream of the Dirty Woman: A Play in One Act Based on a Dream of Elka Schumann with a Record of the PerformanceAuthor: Bread and Puppet Theater - "The Bread and Puppet Theater" (often known simply as "Bread & Puppet") is a politically radical puppet theater, active since the 1960s, currently based in Glover, Vermont. Its founder and director is Peter Schumann. The name "Bread & Puppet" is derived from the theater's practice of sharing its own fresh bread, served for free with aioli, with the audience of each performance as a means of creating community, and from its central principle that art should be as basic to life as bread. Some have heard echoes of the Roman phrase "bread and circuses" or the labor slogan "Bread and Roses" in the theater's name as well, though these are not often mentioned in Bread & Puppet's own explanations of its name. The Bread and Puppet Theater participates in parades including Fourth of July celebrations, notably in Cabot, Vermont, with many effigies including a satirical Uncle Sam on stilts. , Elka Schumann.

        Figures, with three background figures. Original painting, acrylic on canvas, measuring 20 x 24 inches, signed lower right with the artist's initials, as was his custom, and on verso in full

      , 1980 An exceptionally fine painting of a young man engulfed in light, another young man watching him from behind, while a man and a woman meet in the background. This evocative painting reflects the rather complicated personal relationships which seemed of great interest to Williams and the palette speaks to his nights and days in Key West, a place, like Provincetown and Venice, famed for its particular light.

        Music for Chameleons

      Random House 1980 - The xerox sheets ( 8.5 by 11, printed to the front only ) of the pre-publication manuscript for this collection of stories, biographical essays and a ' non-fiction novel ' . This was a Random House in-house copy with a pencilled notation ( in an unknown hand ) to the envelope containing the pages, noting that there are fewer than ten copies of this version. A significant degree of editorial effort is reflected in the text of the book, primarily typographical in nature, although there are numerous additons and deletions. The published book reflects the incorporation of those changes made to this manuscript copy. The preface of the published version, however, is markedly different in the two versions - and suggests the exercise of significant editorial influence over Capote's ego. The published book strikes his claim that " I had to invent a new method of writing - and then learn how to use it. " Also gone is the statement that " Suddenly I was able to set fire in a few paragraphs material that heretofore would have taken endless pages to ignite. For instance, I did a portrait of Marilyn Monroe, it's only 12 pages long, but I couldn't have told more about Marilyn if I had written 1200. " Gone is a reference to ' finding a method ', and the conclusion to a sentence reading ' I eventually developed a style. ' omitted from the book; " .of reporting that I called Conversational Portraits. " A very scarce version of a book; an internal working draft that would have been read by a very small cohort of Random House personnel, as well as the author. This set additionally offers fascinating insights into a book as a work-in-progress; and begs questions about how the ensuing conversations about the suggested changes might have progressed.

Very light fading to board edges; an excellent fresh copy in the price-clipped jacket with faint mark to rear panel. First edition, first impression of Robinson's first book. In 2003 Guardian Unlimited named Housekeeping one of its 100 greatest novels of all time, describing it as a "haunting, poetic story, drowned in water and light." [Attributes: First Edition]
