        Christopher Pratt

      Toronto: Quintus Press, 1981. Limited edition of 279 signed copies. Hardcover. Very good. 209 p. 34 x 37 cm. 15 b&w figures, author's self-portrait, 81 tipped-in colour plates. Leather spine with beige cloth boards. Spine faded. In matching cloth slipcase with light wear. Signed by the artist and essayists. Silkscreen print not included. When Christopher Pratt first entered Mount Allison University in 1953 it was in pre-medicine. But after being encouraged to paint by Lawren Harris and Alex Colville, Pratt turned his attention to fine arts. Summer work as a construction surveyor at the American Naval Base at Argentia explains the precise measuring found in his paintings. In 1961, Pratt accepted the position of curator at the newly opened Memorial University Art Gallery in St. John's. He remained at the gallery for two and a half years before deciding to concentrate on his painting full-time. The result has been a prolific number of iconic clapboard houses and boats on the seashore as well as more unsettling images like building demolitions and bleak landscapes. Though some of his images supply a feeling of calm, others seem to convey the sharp, northeast winds of Newfoundland.

        The King of Comedy (Original screenplay for the 1982 film)

      New York: New Regency Films, 1981. Final Draft script for the 1982 film. Perhaps Scorsese's most underrated film, "The King of Comedy" is a brilliant study of celebrity worshipScorsese, Martin (director); Paul D. Zimmerman (screenwriter); Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Diahnne Abbott, Sandra Bernhard (starring) and American media culture by way of an exploratory journey into the mind of Rupert Pupkin, a man totally lacking in self-awareness, driven only by obsession. The titular character is played by Robert De Niro, cast completely against type, in furious pursuit of his idol, Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis), along with the genius addition of Sandra Bernhard as De Niro's crazed groupie assistant. Members of the British band, The Clash, briefly appear, including Joe Strummer. Joyce Millman of Salon called "The King of Comedy" "Martin Scorsese's second least popular movie, after The Last Temptation of Christ. Which is a shame, because it's Scorsese's second greatest film, after Taxi Driver." Set and shot on location in New York. Orange titled wrappers, noted as FINAL on the front wrapper, dated July 22, 1981, with a credit for screenwriter Zimmerman. Title page present, identical to the front wrapper. 107 leaves, with the last leaf of text numbered 106. Photographically reproduced. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus, side-stitched.
