        Pictures from the New World

      Millertown, NY: Aperture, 1981. FIRST TRADE EDITION, DANNY LYON?S OWN ANNOTATED COPY. ?This copy, Lyon's own, was sent to the former executive editor of Camera Arts, Fred Ritchen. Lyon's enclosed letter states, ?I?ve marked some pages which I think makes a good progression over the years, showing a change in subject and style... For the most part I have also marked pictures that are less well known, and often have only appeared in print in this book. Nothing was run by any magazines when the hard back was printed... P.S. I?ll need this particular copy back when you?re done, as it is my own; though I?m sure I can get you another from Aperture? (December 17, 1982). The resultant May 1983 issue of Camera Arts is included, as is a provenance letter by Tom Ridinger, co-founder of Camera Arts, stating this ?must be the rarest copy of Danny Lyon?s Pictures from the New World."Lyon critiques his most famous subject in this copy, scrawling, ?A BAD reproduction of my BEST picture Bike riders? (pg. 30). This copy features around a dozen pages with pencilled layout drawings and instructions, and over a dozen pages marked with Lyon?s original paper clips and sticky tabs.Danny Lyon was a twentieth-century photographic luminary who released Pictures from the New World in 1981 on the dynamic work of his past eighteen years. In the introduction he writes, ?In order to to make this book I have had to face directly everything I have done in photography... Now I give it back to you, America, from whom I took it all in the first place. The slate is clean, and I am free to begin again.??Among a group of revolutionaries whose work rose to prominence in the late 1960s and ?70s and transformed the nature of documentary photography -- a group that includes friends and colleagues of Mr. Lyon?s like Mary Ellen Mark and Larry Clark -- the idea of conscience has been imbedded more deeply in Mr. Lyon?s photographs than in those of all but a few of his contemporaries? (The New York Times April 24, 2009).The Focal Encyclopedia of Photography recounts,?He was self-taught as a photographer and his first images document the social struggle. It was a pattern to be repeated throughout his career -- to actively live with subgroups or participate with segments of society he would document. He became a member of a Chicago motorcycle gang, The Outlaws, before producing the book, The Bike Riders in 1968. Later he spent time with construction workers, stock care races, prison inmates, and peoples of the Third World to make his books and films? (pg. 268).Millertown, NY: Aperture, 1981. Oblong quarto, original cloth, original dust jacket; custom silk box. Text block sprung from binding; very clean text. Dust jacket with only a centimeter closed tear and light toning. Also with: a letter from Danny Lyon about this copy, an additional letter of provenance from Tom Ridinger, and associated magazine copy. A significant ensemble illustrating Lyon's own assessment of his work. Good / Very Good.

        Tales of Ordinary Madness [Signed Screenplay]

      Rome: (Nuova Stampa). [1981]. The screenplay by Amidei, Ferreri and Foutz (in English) for the 1981 film based on Bukowski's stories. Bukowski's collection Erections, Ejaculations, Exhibitions and General Tales of Ordinary Madness was published in 1972; there wasn't a collection entitled Tales of Ordinary Madness until 1983. Ben Gazzara starred in the well-received film, which won a number of awards in Italy where it was made: the screenplay won a David di Donatello award, roughly the equivalent of the Oscar, and Marco Ferreri also won a Best Director David, as well as a Golden Goblet and Silver Ribbon for Best Director, Italy's other major cinema awards. This copy is signed by Bukowski on the front cover. Velobound, with gray cardstock covers and a typed label on the front cover. Near fine. Scarce: we have never encountered another copy of it, let alone a copy signed by Bukowski. First Edition. No Binding.

Edition bound by Gray Parrot in Fabriano over boards printed to a design by Debra Weier and brown leather trim, beige cloth clam. Unpaginated. Translated by Ben Belitt. Limited to 60 numbered copies, signed by Ben Belitt, Debra Weier and Bill Bridgers. The signature of Pable Nerudo is embossed in relief above that of the collaborators. Designed by Debra Weier and William D. Bridgers. Handset in Virgin Bodoni Book by the artists and Bill Bridgers. Printed on Arches buff and Rives BFK tan, with one page of Japanese paper. Five two-plate color etchings printed on Rives BFK and Arches. "Four of Nerudas poems about the sky and earth were selected for this book and each of the poems rests inside its own multi-colored, two-plate, bleed etching textured by Weier. The flow of six signatures is realized through an extra etching, various color stencil rolls, type-high plates, collage and sculpted paper constructions. After many runs through the etching press and many more through the letterpress, after more than a year of meeting and talking with friends and advisors scattered among various states of mind and of America, after the inevitable delays of collecting type and paper, after waiting so long, this complex pop-up, fold-out, bilingual edition [was] completed ... in October, 1981." - from Prospectus. Skystones has become a very scarce book to find. It is a classic of contemporary good American Artists' Books.

Commencement program that hides a literary hoax. On page 25, which lists the graduates from the University from the College of Arts and Sciences, the first listed of the six graduates in Geography is Nelson Springer Angstrom, the son of Rabbit Angstrom, both of whom existed only in the fertile mind of John Updike, who sent Nelson to Kent State in the third Rabbit book, Rabbit is Rich (1981). Updike corresponded with the assistant to the President of Kent State in order to gather details of the school for the book; the same employee was responsible for the University print shop, and awarded Nelson with a degree. Copy of a clipping detailing the hoax is laid in. Presumably missing from most Updike collections. OCLC locates a single run of the commencement program, but seems to lack any issues after 1963. .
