        [Manuscript]: The Retreat from Liberty: The Erosion of Democracy in Today's Britain

      London: Michael Moorcock. [1981]. Loose (mostly) typed sheets printed rectos only laid into a folder hand-lettered by Moorcock with his address label. Approximately 105 leaves. Title page, contents, introduction, and the first page of each chapter on his personal stationery, the rest on white typing paper. Letter from the publisher Zomba laid in urging Moorcock to deliver the book by mid-January. A couple of leaves (copies of Margaret Thatcher speeches) are photocopied, the rest are typed. Tears on a couple of pages, page 75 has a small chip removing a few words, and numbered page 33 is lacking (but seems to have been removed by the author or publisher). Very heavily corrected by Moorcock in his hand, removing or revising many passages, and writing others in. Moorcock's assault on Thatcher and Reaganism, especially decrying the retreat from feminism. A fully realized working manuscript by this important science-fiction writer who has written on a wide spectrum of topics; he is a self-described pragmatic anarchist. It is arguable that Moorcock's view of Thatcherism helped inform the opinions of his close friend Alan Moore, and may have been an influence on the great graphic novelist's work including V for Vendetta and Watchman. Moore used some of Moorcock's characters in his The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series. .

        Archive of Correspondence with Glen Dawson

      1981-1992. Six typed letters signed and 9 typed postcards signed from Zwinger to Dawson, and one autograph letter signed from Zwinger to Dawson's wife, Mary Helen. Together with three of Zwinger's books: Wind in the Rock [NY: Harper & Row, 1978]; A Desert Country Near the Sea [NY: Harper & Row, 1983]; and The Mysterious Lands [NY: Dutton, 1989]. The latter is signed by the author; the first two are inscribed by Zwinger to Dawson: the first reads, "For Glen Dawson - I suspect this book is the prologue to working in Baja California; in many ways they are the same but Baja is thornier, spinier, and much tougher to walk through. Still, one has to begin somewhere - Ann Zwinger/ January, 1980." A Desert Country Near the Sea is inscribed to both Mary Helen and Glen, in 1983: "whose help made so much of this book possible, both in production and ushering it on its way, and who also find Baja a place of enchantment. With my affectionate regard and thanks. Ann Zwinger." The correspondence begins in 1981 with Zwinger typing a long thank you letter (two sides of a greeting card), apparently in response to Dawson sending one of the books he published by Miguel del Barco on Baja, California. Zwinger updates Dawson on her progress on A Desert Country Near the Sea, which has been delayed due to her work on A Conscious Stillness, following the death of co-author Edwin Teale. The next letter is a self-described "fan letter" to Dawson, commending him on the "scholarship and presentation" of his Baja books. Next follow a postcard thanking Dawson for a check and a touristy postcard from Greece. In 1983, Zwinger pens an effusive thank you letter to Mary Helen for a day spent with the couple. There follows a series of postcards: Zwinger thanking Dawson for the loan of a WONDERFUL book by Dr. Henderson (likely Men & Whales at Scammon's Lagoon); saying that the book Men of El Tejon is out of her price range; thanking Dawson for an unspecified update and reporting on weather and travel; reporting from France; thanking him for an "absolutely beautiful turritella gonostoma" (look it up); and, in 1987, two cards, one thanking Dawson for sending along reviews and letters about Zwinger's book Xantus, which Dawson published, and another card saying she is thrilled with the quality of the book (presumably Xantus). From 1988 to 1992, Zwinger resumes sending Dawson letters rather than postcards. In August, 1988, she thanks Dawson for yet another book and tells him she is waiting for the copy-edited manuscript of her "desert book" [The Mysterious Lands] and that she is working on a proposal for an "aspen book" with an "excellent photographer" and that it "has gotten both of us out a lot, rather a more-than-you-ever-wanted-to-know-about-aspen-and-weren't-going-to-ask book [Aspen: Blazon of the High Country with Barbara Sparks]." In January 1989, Zwinger writes to thank Dawson for a copy of Ward Ritchie's Of Bookmen & Printers and goes on to thank him for all his work and for his friendship. In January 1991, she writes both Glen and Mary Helen with wishes for a happy 50th anniversary and continues on to describe a Christmas hike she and her daughter took in the Grand Canyon, "beset by weather and the huge cold front that sank down to put frost on the saguaros in Phoenix and Tucson and ice on the roads. Coming up we had a windchill factor of minus something or other...It was one of those things you would never in your right mind do but when you have done it you look back with a sense of privilege..." In 1992, Zwinger writes to thank Dawson for his "General Index" [Baja California Travels Series General Index]: "...what a spectacular list of books you've presided accomplishment that you and Edwin Carpenter have achieved that is unique and exceedingly worthwhile...But most of all, my thanks for including me..." She reports on finishing up a "very difficult" book on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon, and on becoming a grandmother: "I need to find a way to be a less Nana Ann in absentia, to show her a river and say someday..." In addition to the books and letters, there is an announcement for a reception for A Desert Country Near the Sea; a letter to Dawson from a Research Associate at University of California, Berkeley referencing Zwinger; and an invitation to see Zwinger at a 1985 Book and Author Luncheon presented by the University of Arizona Library. A substantive correspondence between the award-winning naturalist and writer Zwinger and the publisher, mountain climber, antiquarian bookseller and environmentalist Dawson. Five mailing envelopes included. All items near fine or better.

      Babylon Books (1981), (Manchester) - 4to. Pictorial wraps. Offset printed. Some mild rubbing, edgewear. Very good plus or better overall. [44]pp. Published before the formation of The Smiths, Morrissey's first book consists of 8 pages of text by the singer followed by reproductions of Dolls photographs and press clippings. A direct outgrowth of articles Morrissey penned for various zines (among them KID'S STUFF and THE NEXT BIG THING), the future singer's "book- zine" appeared in 1981 from hometown publisher Babylon Books, a one-man operation headed by John Muir. Muir has claimed the book sold upwards of 3000 copies, but if that's so most of those were undoubtedly from a second printing done to take advantage of The Smith's growing popularity and likely coinciding with the similarly-motivated reprint of Morrissey's second book for Baby- lon, JAMES DEAN IS NOT DEAD (1983). Even accounting for this title's ephemeral production, however, with OCLC recording just three copies worldwide (and *all* of those a 1995 reprint), we strongly suspect Muir's claims are inflated. It would be difficult to overstate the Doll's influence on Morrissey’s development as an artist. He was the president of their UK fan club; and their albums, performances, and perhaps most of all personae were foundational experiences for the young singer-songwriter. A book we've been looking for for almost ten years and the first we've seen offered in that time. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Three Forms in Space

      London 1981 - A lively early work by the progressive contemporary British artist David Ferry. A printmaker and photomontage specialist who has lectured and exhibited his works worldwide, David Ferry was born in Blackpool in 1957. After studying at the Blackpool College of Technology, he trained at the prestigious Camberwell School of Art and Crafts and the Slade School of Fine Art in London. His first solo exhibition was held at the 1984 International Contemporary Art Fair at London's Barbican Centre, and he made his first significant U.S. debut in 2000 as a visiting professor at Southampton College, New York with an exhibition entitled David Ferry from the window seat at the Avram Gallery. In addition to his many lithographs and photomontages, Ferry's oeuvre includes numerous artist books, some of which featured in the 1999 touring exhibition and catalogue Aspects of Our National Heritage . His abstract works frequently have a satirical edge, and the influence of his self-professed fascination with the surreal and the comical is particularly evident in those images representing his subjective interpretation of particular places and historical events. Ferry currently teaches printmaking at the Winchester School of Art and is also a curriculum advisor for a national print study center in Cambridge. In 2002, he was awarded an important grant from the Pollock-Krasner to fund the creation of new works for a future exhibition in New York. Mixed media. Number 2 from an edition of 4. Signed by the artist in pencil, lower right. Very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        1981 United States Chess Championship and Zonal Qualifier (Score Sheets)

      United States Chess Federation, South Bend 1981 - Completes set of fourteen games in Yasser Seirawan's hand of the games. All signed by his opponents except the games with Christiansen, Shamkovich, Kogan and Benjamin. The game with Benjamin is the carbon. The 28th U S Championship and Zonal Qualifier was a hard fought contest which ended with a tie for first place and two co-champions, Grandmasters Walter Browne and Yasser Seirawan. Since the top three finishers automatically qualify for the Zonal, a playoff between Larry Christiansen, Lubomir Kavalek and Sammy Reshevsky, who tied for third would have to be held to determine which one would join Seirawan and Browne. The event got under way on July 9 at the Americana Hotel in South Bend, Indiana. The 9th was the opening ceremonies and players’ meeting. The draw for pairing numbers allowed Seirawan a piece of luck, assuring him an extra White over the course of the tournament. In the first round the game were hard fought, and the only "grandmaster draw" coming from Browne. Browne decided to negotiate an early truce after consuming a great deal of time trying to crack Boris Kogan’s solid opening. Sergey Kudrin, a last minute replacement for John Grefe, made his debut in the tournament an exciting one, sacrificing a piece. Sammy Reshevsky grabbed the offer and sent his King on a long hike. After time control Kudrin admitted that his attack had failed and the first decisive game was recorded. John Fedorowicz methodically turned back Leonid Shamkovich’s attempt to squeeze an advantage from an English opening. Kavalek tested Lev Alburt’s favorite Alekhine’s Defense in the tensest struggle of the round and managed to convert an extra pair of pawns into a win. Christiansen chose a Caro-Kann against fellow Californian GM Jim Tarjan and a theoretical battle ensued. Christiansen neutralized Tarjan’s slight edge with a series of characteristically aggressive moves and won after Tarjan lost the thread of the game shortly before adjournment. Evans and Lein had the best game of the round, a beautiful strategically effort by the émigré GM who displayed originality and fine control to defeat defending co-champion Larry Evans. Seirawan and Byrne played a Queen’s Gambit Declined in which Robert Byrne’s hurry to simplify brought him unexpected difficulties; Seirawan reached a Bishop ending and exploited his opponent’s weak Kingside to win a pawn. Byrne resisted staunchly and managed to thwart all of White’s winning attempts. Joel Benjamin, the youngest entrant, replaced invitee Nick deFirmian, who chose to play in Europe, and his game with Jack Peters was the longest to the round. It was a graduation of sorts for Benjamin, who would have otherwise been defending his U S Junior title. At the end of the first round Reshevsky, Kavalek, Lein, Peters and Christiansen all had one point each. Round two saw only two draws, Lein and Kogan and Christiansen and Shamkovich. This vicious and exciting session resulted in wins for Reshevsky, Kudrin, Byrne, Seirawan, Alburt and Kavalek. In one of the crispest battles, Alburt’s violence paid dividends as he ran Tarjan’s King around the board, picking off most of his pawns in the process. At the end of this round Reshevsky and Kavalek each had two points. Round three had a shocking development. As Fedorowicz awaited the arrival of Evans, a search by the tournament staff disclosed that Evans had checked out of the hotel! Browne bemoaned the fact that he now had two more Blacks than Whites. While Lein and Byrne, Evans’ first two opponents, dropped for +1 to and equal score as a result of his departure (Evans’ score would have to be erased since he had completed less than half his games). Later in the day Assistant TD Larry Paxton explained that the evening of the second round Evans had notified him that he was feeling ill and this was the reason he had come late for his game with Byrne. The reduction in the number of aspirants to 15 was unfortunate for the championship. In this round, one of the most interesting gam [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
