        Fast Times at Ridgemont High [Advance Uncorrected Proofs -- Quite Scarce and Likely Rare]

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1981. First edition. A Near Fine copy of the ADVANCE UNCORRECTED PROOFS (within called the BOUND GALLEY) for the first edition, first printing of this highly-notable book (minor sticker residue to the front wrapper's upper right corner -- otherwise Fine with light soiling and with toning to the spine and a faint crease line to each wrapper's lower leading corner) and containing a few samples of the illustrations planned to be used in the book; Crowe's tale of his 1979 return under an assumed name to Clairemont High School in San Diego -- a School that he had briefly attended. While there, the youthful-looking Crowe (who had graduated from high school in 1972 at the age of 15) mingled freely with the students both at school and at their homes and hangouts. The book -- optioned for a film even before it was published -- provided the basis for the 1982 film of the same name starring Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh (in her breakthrough film), Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, Brian Backer, Robert Romanus, and Ray Watson. The film also provided minor roles for Nicholas Cage (in his debut film) and Forest Whitaker ( in his first on-screen performance of note). In 2005, the film was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". In our experience, copies of the Advance Uncorrected Proofs for this debut novel are as scarce as hen's teeth. A Near Fine copy of the ADVANCE UNCORRECTED PROOFS (within called the BOUND GALLEY) for this notable debut novel. QUITE SCARCE INDEED and, in our opinion, likely RARE.

        DAU AL SET. [Revista. 58 números. colección completa]. 1948 - 1956.

      [Aubert Impressor],, Barcelona [Olot], 1981 - Edición facsímil de una de las revista de arte y poesía que hicieron escuela y crearon todo un mundo de vanguardia artística que en Cataluña habia quedado brutalmente interrumpido por la guerra civil. Los números que sucesivamente pero con intervalos en el tiempo fueron saliendo, se volvieron inencontrables, también debido a su corta tirada ( no se imprimian más de cien o doscientos ejemplares, según el contenido) y colecciones completas son rarísimas. la edición facsímil que presentamos fomentó su estudio y la inclusión de esta "obra de arte", en las bibliotecas de los museos de arte moderno de muchos paises, y en las colecciones particulares de bibliófilos interesados en el arte y la poesia moderna. Algunos de los números son monográficos, como los dedicados al Jazz, Tauromaquia, Dada, Picabia, etc. Colección completa de todos los números aparecidos, algunos de 12 páginas, otros de 8 o 4, 2, etc. Collages, papeles diversos, en color o acharolados. Protegidos en dos carpetas negras con estampación de letrería dorada en ambos planos, estuche de color negro original. Perfecto estado de conservación. 2 volúmenes. 24,5x17,5 cm.

        [Flyers]: Dirken - Miller Production concert flyers for the local Bay Area punk scene. NO: 166,176,180,181,182,184,189

      Los Angeles, California. 1981-1982. A collection of 10 Dirksen -- Miller Production flyers (numbers 166, 176, 180, 181, 182, 184, and 189). The flyers promoting Los Angeles punk venues and bands from 1981 and 1982 featuring acts such as T.S.O.L., Minimal Man, Flipper, MX 80 Sound, Wolvarines, and the Dickheads. The flyers are all printed on various colored paper sheets sized, 14" x 8.5" in black ink. Near fine with light wear and toning except one flyer with the top left corner ripped. Dirksen -- Miller Productions was created in the 1980s by Dirk Dirksen. Dirksen was a music promoter for the Mabuhay Gardens and On Broadway, two notable punk rock venues, in the late 1970s to 1980s. It was because of this that Dirksen was dubbed the name the "Pope of Punk". Originally from Germany, Dirksen moved to United States in 1948 and began booking bands in the 1970s. He wrote and directed the Amapola Presents Show, which featured local bay area artists on KEMO-TV weekly. On the back on the flyers, record store locations, top hit charts, radio station shows, and radio playlists are printed with "New Wave Rotten Record Chart" at the top. The front of the flyers depict black and white pictures of the bands with show dates and locations. Several of these bands were seminal in the beginnings of punk rock that exploded in Los Angeles. Flipper, being one of the most popular bands during this time, formed in San Francisco in 1979. Their slowed-down sound influenced many punk bands but also infuriated punkers in the scene, making the band only more notorious. Flipper has been noted as the forerunner to sludge metal and both Kurt Cobain from Nirvana and Eric Avery from Jane's Addiction have cited Flipper as one of their influences. When Henry Rollins of Black Flag described Flipper he said, "They were just heavy. Heavier than you. Heavier than anything... When they played they were amazing." T.S.O.L. was another influential band, which had formed in 1978 in Long Beach. Associated with hardcore-punk, the band brought a fast-paced, poppy sound to the punk scene which was favored over Flippers slow sound. T.S.O.L. became hugely popular on the local scene but because of constant changing sounds and appearance the band never found its success globally. The Mabuhay Gardens (The Mab) and On Broadway were two of the most popular punk venues in Los Angeles during this time. Combined with Dirksen and his abrasive personality as the emcee for both venues, punk bands local and traveling made it a point to stop and play at these venues for their Bay Area punk scene. On Broadway was the top level of the entire building while The Mab was the basement area, however the venues were separate featuring different acts and styles. The Mab and On Broadway closed in 1986 but has been bought and re-opened several times and different clubs for the changing scenes. A fascinating collection of Bay Area punk flyers showing the popular local bands and punk related stores, radio stations, and venues. .
