        Take it! 1-6 [Complete Run]

      Boston, Massachusetts: Take It! Magazine. 1981-1982. A complete run of this short-lived but pioneering Boston-based magazine, including the elusive final issue. Folios and one quarto. Between 32pp. and 48pp. Illustrated self-wrappers, the quarto issue stapled. Fine. Created by Michael Koenig, with help from longtime music critic and independent music historian Byron Coley, Take It! covered the punk, hardcore, and newly emerging indy music scenes. Each issue included a flexi-disc with music from Dead Kennedys, Angry Samoans, The Trademarks, The Creamers, Yello, Renaldo and The Loaf, The Mutants, 1/2 Japanese, and Flipper. The run features articles, interviews, essays, and reviews from Richard Meltzer, John Holmstrom, Jonathan Borofsky, Gang of Four, Mission of Burma, Black Flag, Flesh Eaters, The Slits, The Psychedelic Furs, and many others. A nice run of this influential music magazine. .

        THE NEW YORK DOLLS

      (Manchester): Babylon Books, (1981). First Edition. Wraps. Very good +. 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.

        Growing Up with Mickey

      Philadelphia: The Rosenbach Museum & Library, 1981. - Limited to 500 numbered and signed copies, this high quality art print in full color was prepared for the exhibition Maurice Sendak: The Artist's Collection of Children's Toys, Books and Drawings.

        PHOTOS IN + OUT CITY LIMITS: BOSTON ("PHOTOS IN & OUT CITY LIMITS: BOSTON") - Rare Signed Copy of The First And Only Edition

      New York City, NY: ULAE Incorporated, 1981 - 1st Printing. Signed. 70 pages. Published in 1981. Collection of photographs on subject. The first of a planned series on American cities, the project ended with a companion volume on New York City. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The book is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Robert Rauschenberg: Oversize-volume format. White softcovers with metallic-silver titles beautifully embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Robert Rauschenberg. Essay by Clifford Ackley. Matching white hard board slipcase. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the very highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents the great artist's collection of black-and-white photographs on Boston, the partial fulfillment of his 30-year-old wish to photograph the entire United States, a project he never completed. Showcases his unique approach to photography as a process of discovery, selection, and assemblage of objects from everyday life. One of the least well-known facts about Rauschenberg is that he began his career as a photographer. He makes no distinction between his photography and his painting, and he brings the same acute eye to both. The photographs, like the paintings, are formally rigorous, sensuous, and piercing. His celebrated method of appropriating found images and objects to capture the fabric, tempo, and "feel" of modern life is photographically-inspired and characterizes his large body of work. The idea of appropriation is not unique to Rauschenberg. It is a central tenet of Surrealism and continues to be the latter Movement's enduring legacy. What makes Rauschenberg's work unique is the way he has "set in motion an interplay of shapes in which the human form is integrated to a rigorous yet flamboyant sense of design, pictures in which art and real life coincide" (Pontus Hulten). "A protean genius who showed America that all of life could be open to art. Rauschenberg didn't give a fig for consistency or curating his reputation; his taste was always facile, omnivorous, and hit-or-miss, yet he had a big-ness of soul and a richness of temperament that recalled Walt Whitman" (Robert Hughes). "Mine is the need to be where it will always never be the same again. Photography is the most direct communication of non-violent contacts" (Robert Rauschenberg). An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Rauschenberg collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in pencil by Robert Rauschenberg. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of few signed copies still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Many copies have major flaws because the color white soils very easily. According to dealers who knew him, Rauschenberg basically stopped signing books in the 1990's. Signed copies still available online are vintage, not recent, and very few. A rare signed copy thus. 45 tritone plates. One of the greatest artists of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy.

        Andy Warhol - Philippe. Photographies Originales.

      Par l'auteur 1981 - - Par l'auteur, S.l. 1981-1982, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, 2 planches photographiques. - Diptyque de portraits photographiques originaux en noir et blanc réalisés et tirés par Marc Trivier. Les deux photographies, mises en regard, sont: - Un portrait photographique original de Andy Warhol à New-York en 1982. - Un portrait photographique original de Philippe prise à Manage en 1981. Portrait d'artiste, d'anonyme, de fou, d'abattoir ou d'arbre : Marc Trivier a photographié chaque sujet avec la même intensité interrogative. Toutes réalisées dans le même format carré, élémentaire et clos, sans retouche ni recadrage, les photographies semblent moins mettre en scène un sujet - célèbre ou inconnu, élu ou déchu, vivant ou mort - qu'interroger une présence. «Ce qui m'intéressait, ce n'était pas de photographier simplement un corps ou un visage, mais cette situation particulière qui est quelqu'un en train de faire la photo de quelqu'un d'autre.» En confrontant les portraits d'artistes à leur correspondant altéré, Trivier dévêt l'oeuvre de ses effets et dévoile l'énigmatique nudité du corps photographique. "Dans sa cosmogonie, chaque chose, chaque être, végétal, animal ou humain, mérite le même respect. Car tous sont confrontés à la même loi d'airain : la solitude. " (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, le 05/03/2011 à l'occasion de la rétrospective Marc Trivier à la Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Tirages argentiques non signés, comme la plupart des oeuvres de Trivier. Epreuves uniques tirées par l'artiste. Petite tache en marge supérieure de la photographie de Warhol. Rarissime diptyque d'un des grands photographes contemporains. [Attributes: First Edition]

        For the Hundredth Time: Gabberjabb Number 5

      Minor Confluence: Perishable Press. 1981. Selected as one of AIGA's 50 Best Books of the Year. One of 200 copies printed, this copy is inscribed by Hamady on the back cover: "This is a special copy for our friend ___ ____ there in Salisbury/ the cigar box label was given to me a long time ago (along with some cigar molds) by Paul Blackburn. If you subtract 14,500 from copy number you will see this is copy number five. All best, Walter the Hamady 15 VIII 81." Laid in is an autograph note signed by Hamady from Labor Day of the same year; in part: "Your words do cheer me up in a world that seems so bossy & indifferent." Approximately 50 words, written on the back of a postcard, but mailed in an envelope (included). Both the book and the letter are fine. Hamady's Interminable Gabberjabb series, begun in 1973 and comprising eight books by its end in 2005, is considered to have "changed the face of contemporary book arts in the United States" (Univ. of Arizona Poetry Center). Number 5 is considered by some to be one of the finest in the series, in its playfulness and the variety of its collage elements, which contrast with and complement the very serious content pertaining to his relief at his wife's return from the hospital after successful surgery. The Gabberjabbs collectively challenge the "reader" to slow down, discard the usual assumptions and attitudes toward the printed work, and engage the material in a manner that is interactive and collaborative: one feels almost as though one is creating the book as one reads it -- a conceit carefully engendered by the author. Since the books were created from the leftover materials from Hamady's other projects, each copy tends to be unique in some fashion. Gabberjabbs were recognized quickly for their importance and the small print runs quickly disappeared. OCLC locates 57 copies of Number 5, an extraordinarily high number for a book with such a small limitation. Copies seldom turn up on the market, let alone copies that are annotated by the author, as this one is, with the additional inserted letter as well as the original 1981 invoice for the subscriber's purchase. A fine copy of a landmark artist's book, and a rarity in the market. First Edition. Hardcover.

        [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 over...an 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.

        THE NEW YORK DOLLS

      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]
