        Dialogue Over a Ouija Board; A Verse Dialogue

      Rainbow Press, Cambridge, England 1981 - Number 57 of 140 copies, octavo size, 32 pp. Designed and printed by Sebastian Carter at the Rampant Lions Press, Cambridge. "Along with compiling lists of potential subjects for Plath's poems and stories, her husband Ted Hughes advised her on meditation techniques, and used hypnotism and their hand-made Ouija board on a regular basis. Calling these sessions 'magnificent fun,' Plath was intrigued by the concept of 'Pan', their main 'spirit contact' called on for advice on poetry subjects, and sometimes to get numbers for horse races." Many poems were inspired by this process, the two most notable being Plath's Ouija, and Dialogue Over a Ouija Board, a conversation between a couple, Sibyl and Leroy, about the nature of channeling itself. "Ultimately, that particular verse drama ends with the two concluding: 'When lights go out / May two real people breathe in a real room.' Plath writes in The Colossus (interestingly, Pan's own 'family god', was named 'Kolossus'): 'Perhaps you consider yourself an oracle / Mouthpiece of the dead, or of some god or other.' Or perhaps not. Either way, for Plath, channeling was one means of coming in contact with herself." (N.B., from the poet web site Eye Rhymes: Sylvia Plath's Art of the Visual, pp. 111-112.) ***DESCRIPTION: Full vellum bound by Alan Winstanley, Salisbury (with the binder's ticket on the rear pastedown), lettered in gilt to the backstrip, top-edge gilt, hand-made paper endpapers, frontispiece by Leonard Baskin, title page in black and blue; hand set in Frederic Warde's Arrighi-Vicenza type, Barcham Green Canterbury hand-made paper, octavo size (10" by 5.75"), pagination: [1-6] 7-30 [1 blank] [1 colophon], first edition, limited, number 57 of 140 copies.

        Andy Warhol. Photographie Originale

      A pair of original black and white photographic portraits taken and printed by Marc Trivier.The two photographs are, respectively, an original photographic portrait of Andy Warhol in New York in 1982; and an original photographic portrait of Philippe taken in Manage in 1981.Artists, strangers, madmen, abbatoirs, trees - Marc Trivier photographed each of his subjects with the same interrogative intensity. All his photographs are in the same square format, simple and confined, with no retouching or alteration of the framing, and seem less to show off a subject - famous or unknown, in or out of power, dead or alive - than to seek out a presence."What interested me was not simply photographing a body or a face, but the curious situation of someone taking a photo of someone else." In placing his portraits of artists side by side with a divergent pair, Trivier denudes the work of its effect and reveals the enigmatic nakedness of the photographic body. "In his cosmogony every thing, every being - vegetable, mineral or human - deserves the same respect. For all are subject to the same iron law: solitude" (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, 05/03/2011, on the occasion of Marc Trivier's retrospective at the European House of Photography).Unsigned silver prints, like most of Trivier's work. Unique proofs printed by the artist.One small spot to upper margin of portrait of Warhol.An exceedingly rare diptych by one of the great contemporary photographers. Par l'auteur s.l. 1981-1982 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm 2 planches photographiques

        Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, Hannibal Rising.

      G.P. Putnam's Sons 1981-2006, New York - First editions of each volume in the author's acclaimed series featuring Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Octavo, 4 volumes. Each volume is signed by Thomas Harris and each are fine in fine dust jackets. A very sharp set, uncommon signed. Stephen King wrote of Red Dragon, the first novel in series: "The book simply comes at you and comes at you, finally leaving you shaken and sober and afraid on a deeper level than simple ‘thrills’ alone furnish." "Red Dragon is, quite simply, the most frightening book I have ever read, and surely belongs in the best 100 horror volumes. I’d be tempted to place it in the top ten It is an intensely visual novel, rich with sound and color and telling use of small detail to make large points. All of its characters are brilliantly portrayed and it is filled with gritty verisimilitude Read it, shiver at it, remember it-for you will be unable to forget it. It is as real as fiction can be and as frightening" (Horror 100 Best Books). Each book has been made into film, one of which, The Silence of the Lambs went on to win five Academy Awards.

      Privately Printed, Boston 1981 - Limited edition of 750 copies (this is copy number 14) Signed by the author. From the inside flap: In 1938, at the age of sixty-two, Jane Peterson was named the "most outstanding individual of the year" by the American Historical Society for artistic achievement. She was only the second woman in the history of the Society to be so honored. Her photograph appeared as the frontispiece in that year's volume of The Encyclopedia o^ American Biography, published by the Society, and the biographical article which appeared in the book begins: "During her career as a painter, Jane Peterson (Mrs. M. Bernard Philipp) has won an established place in American art. While her oils and water colors cover a wide range of subjects, she is perhaps best known for her paintings of flowers, which are so rich and vivid that she has made this field peculiarly her own. Her work is represented in numerous permanent collections and has brought her many honors." [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Genocide and Vendetta: The Round Valley Wars of Northern California

      University of Oklahoma Press, Norman 1981 - First Edition. 8vo. x, 403 pp. Bibliography. Photo-illustrations. A fine copy in fine dustjacket of this relatively scarce book. After an accusation of plagiarism (determined to be "unintentional," but nonetheless damning) was brought forward by Virginia P. Miller, a former student of Estle Beard, in 1985, the book was immediately withdrawn by University of Oklahoma Press and has not been re-printed. Here is the history of one of the darkest chapters in California history - the literal genocide ("a war of extermination" as the first governor of California, Peter Hardeman Burnett, enthusiastically phrased it in 1851) of Native Americans by European Americans in Round Valley, CA, in Mendocino County. The first six chapters present the history of the Yolla Bolly country up to 1865, describing the region, the culture of the Yuki and their neighbors, and the depredations of the white settlers. The second part of the book, covering the years from 1865 to 1905, describes the lives and fortunes of the victorious white settlers. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        More Tales From Slim Ellison

      University of Arizona Press, 1981 This book is in pristine condition with a very clear and vivid picture on the cover. If you are interested in "How The West Was Won", read it from a REAL cowboy of Arizona. Glenn Reynolds "Slim" Ellison, cowboy, storyteller and author, was born to Pearl Grafton and Lourinda Frances (Price) Ellison in Globe, Arizona on July 19, 1891, and lived almost his entire life in Gila County. Ellison served at various periods as a cowboy, trail driver, homestead rancher, and camp cook in central Arizona and received little formal education. He was the nephew of Arizona's first governor, George W. P. Hunt. Glenn Ellison died in Globe, Arizona in January of 1983.
