        New York Dolls

      Manchester: Babylon Books, February 1981. First Edition. Softcover.. Near Fine. Small 4to. 48pp. Printed wraps as issued. Numerous Black and White plates. Text in English. In superb condition. Very scarce first printing, with only 4 institutional copies, all in the UK. More images available on request. The young Morrissey's ode and love letter to the New York Dolls. Some excellent images and sharp and astute text by Morrissey. The Dolls were a huge influence on Morrissey- he was president of their UK fan club. "Some bands grab you and they never let you go and, no matter what they do, they can never let you down ... the Dolls were that for me." Fandom aside, Morrissey has produced a brilliant book on what is a quite important chapter in the history of popular culture, the Dolls not only signified the end of the 60s, but crossed boundaries in taste, dress and sexuality. Very scarce, the book was written and published before Morrissey then became famous with the Smiths. An important and informative piece of cultural ephemera.

      New York: William Morrow and Company, Inc.,. 1981. Octavo,. cloth-backed boards.. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#86765). First edition. The scarce hardbound issue; reportedly only 1000 copies so bound. The author's first book and the first book of the Radix Tetrad sequence that "works as a complex meditation on metamorphosis elaborated within a space opera frame, so that densely ambitious moments of poetic aspiration alternate with episodes out of the rag-and-bone shop of pulp magazine fiction; this early use of space opera as frame or arena for baroque exfoliations of story immediately prefigures the similarly exorbitant work of Iain M. Banks and Dan Simmons ... After losing her radiation shield, which guards her against the full nakedness of the universe, Earth begins to mutate savagely, a transformation articulated clearly in RADIX itself through the story of a mutant superman, who undergoes the same transcendental jumpstart that jolts his planet through terrors and dimensions. - John Clute, SFE (online). 1981 Nebula nominee. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-55.

        The Forest. Peep Show

      London: Warren Editions, 1981. An enchanting peep show by the well-known children's author and illustrator Harold Jones, revealing a view deep into forest filled with deer, squirrels, and other animal life. Comprised of six layered panels, plus the illustrated front panel bearing the title viewing aperture. In the background are a waterfall and mountain peaks with trees beginning to show autumnal hues. Printed by Christopher Skelton at Skelton's Press for Jonathan and Phillida Gili. In a slipcase covered with Curwen pattern paper and a hand-colored label, numbered and signed by the artist. The project was initially begun in 1981, but the artist and publishers quickly became overwhelmed by orders and realized that they had underestimated the amount of time and work it would take to hand-color and assemble each copy. The edition was finally completed in 1993. One can easily understand the delay: the hand-coloring is precise and intricate, and each of the panels is quite detailed. Measures approximately 7 by 6 1/4 inches, and 22 inches when extended. Extremely fine.

Within a short while it becomes hard to understand how we could have functioned without the knowledge gained from it. This is such a book. Quigley presents certain 'keys' crucial to the understanding of 20th century political, economic and military events - events of the past, present, and future... The fact that Carroll Quigley, a highly respected professor at Georgetown University and an instructor at Princeton and Harvard, could not find a publisher for this work, is in itself significant." - Stephen A.

        Winston S Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 2, The Wilderness Years 1929-1935

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1981. First edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good . This is the U.S. first edition of Companion Volume V, Part 2 of the Official Biography of Sir Winston Churchill. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - seventeen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were originally published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. The Companion volumes for Volume V of the Official Biography are perhaps the most keenly sought and most prohibitive to acquire of all Official Biography volumes. The British and U.S. first editions saw just a single printing and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many first edition Official Biography sets will forever do without. The British first editions were bound in solid red cloth. The U.S. editions were published using British sheets, but more elaborately bound, with tan linen spines over blue buckram boards with blue spine title panels printed in red and gilt. The bindings also feature head and foot bands and vertical red transition rules between the tan linen and blue buckram. This U.S. first edition of Companion Volume V, Part 2, is in near fine condition in a very good dust jacket. The binding is immaculate - clean, tight, and square with no discernible wear. The only flaws we find are a trivial wrinkle to the binding cloth at the head of the front hinge - perhaps a binding flaw, perhaps a tiny bump. The contents are bright and crisp, the volume clearly unread. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks. We note a light, .75 inch pen mark at the top edge near the spine (clearly a stray pen rather than a remainder mark). The dust jacket is bright and complete, with no losses and retaining the original front flap price. There is some incidental soiling at the hinges, flap folds, and upper rear face, modest wrinkling to the bottom edge at the spine and front face, and .25 inch closed tears at the spine ends and bottom edge of the front face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e2.

Boone founded her SoHo space in 1977, where she was responsible for launching the careers of artists like Julian Schnabel, David Salle, Eric Fischl, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. With her original stable of what came to be known as Neo-Expressionist painters, Boone forged the bull market of the 1980s art world. The gallery championed large-scale heroic painting, and quickly became known for commanding astronomical price tags, pushing its artists' prices ever higher. Boone was the first gallerist to assemble "waiting-lists" for unfinished works by her artists. In many ways, Boone's space prefigured the inextricably linked worlds of art and commerce, and this archive demonstrates her redoubtable ability to stay current. Extensive collection includes announcements for shows by David Salle, Julian Schnabel, Ross Bleckner, Anselm Kiefer, Richard Artschwager, Jorg Immendorff, Georg Baselitz, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Marcel Broodthaers, Eric Fischl, Sigmar Polke, Francesco Clemente , James Lee Byars, Niele Toroni, Sherrie Levine, Jannis Kounellis, Barbara Kruger, Roy Lichtenstein, Yoko Ono, Richard Tuttle, Sean Scully, Roni Horn, Will Cotton, among others.
