        Photo-theater: Tokyo Elegy

      Tokyo: Tojusha (1981) - First Edition. Small square quarto. Many images in sequence, mostly black and white and shot between 1967-1972, with several iconic photographs interspersed among those previously unpublished. The juxtaposition of a highly charged erotic series followed by somber shots of Araki's father's funereal is indicative not only of Araki's artistic prowess, but also of the inherent risk taking that infuses the best of the Japanese photobooks. True to form, the book has a brilliant layout, design, and a subtly provocative dust jacket. Only one copy in OCLC. (Book of Nudes 188-189, obi not present.). Tiny indentation at the spine from having been involved in a bit of book bondage at the Tokyo book market, else fine in black wrappers with French flaps, fine white pictorial dust jacket (itself with a small indentation), and scarce black obi.

I am glad that you enjoyed the press kit and advertising portfolios I sent earlier, and am enclosing a copy of my most recent portfolio for you to add to your collection. Unfortunately after giving the matter some thought, I am unable to come up with any suggestions as to how to make your collection into a profit-making venture.

        RADIX.

      New York: William Morrow and Company, Inc., 1981 - Octavo, cloth-backed boards. 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. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#103617) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Maps and Text of the Boke of Idrography presented by Jean Rotz to Henry VIII now in the British Library. Edited by Helen Wallis with a Foreword by Viscount Eccles

      Oxford: Roxburghe Club, 1981. Large folio, with a coloured illustration on the title, 16 double-page coloured plates, and 11 illustrations in the text; original brown half-morocco, top edges gilt; a fine copy. FINISHED. Dieppe school: the Rotz atlas. First edition: one of only 200 copies for sale, and long out of print. This was the first publication of the Roxburghe Club to be offered for general sale outside the club's very exclusive membership. This is a magnificent production, reproducing in full colour Rotz's superb atlas of 1542, now in the British Library, with its celebrated charts of the coastlines of the world. Rotz's {i Boke }is the earliest surviving work of Dieppe hydrography to show "the Londe of Java", called by later Dieppe hydrographers "Java-la-Grande", and provides some of the strongest evidence in favour of an early Portuguese discovery of Australia, discussed by Helen Wallis in the Introduction ("Java-la-Grande: the first sight of Australia"). Rotz's life, times and works are also examined in detail and the plates are preceded by a transcription of the {i Boke}. Wallis's approach to the Dieppe maps and specifically to the issue of Java-la-Grande has been challenged, notably by W.A.R. Richardson in {i Was Australia Charted before 1606? The Jave La Grande Inscriptions} (National Library of Australia, 2006). Wallis provides one of the more sober approaches to a topic that has been a flypaper for crackpots (the well-named Trickett, one of many less than scholarly writers who have enthusiastically embraced the notion, even claimed in {i Beyond Capricorn }(Adelaide, 2007) that the Vallard map (see following item) showed Botany Bay so precisely that the Mascot runways could be drawn on it. From the Norman Wettenhall collection, with bookplate.

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

      William Heinemann Ltd., London 1981 - 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 published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. The Companion volumes for Volume V of the Official Biography are the most keenly sought and most prohibitive to acquire of all Official Biography volumes. There was only a single printing in England and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many Official Biography sets will forever do without. This is the second of the three Volume V Companions, a superlative copy of the British first edition, only printing. Condition is truly fine in a fine dust jacket. This is about as good as they come; the book appears unread. The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square, showing virtually no wear and retaining a nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, and bright spine gilt. The contents are pristine. There is no sign of the looseness or gutter breaks that so often occur with this massive volume. There is no spotting and no previous ownership marks. The red topstain retains deep unfaded color. The fore and bottom edges are as clean and bright as the contents. The dust jacket is crisp, bright, and complete. There were two prices on the dust jacket flap - an original introductory price and then a higher price specified after 1 September 1981. Both prices are intact on this unclipped dust jacket. The spine print remains bright. We note no losses, tears, sunning, or soiling. Searching for flaws, we can report only a fractional hint of wrinkling at the bottom of the spine. 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.

        The Ultimate Good Luck [Review Copy]

      Houghton Mifflin, Boston 1981 - A review copy of his second novel, a hard-boiled thriller involving American expatriates in Mexico. Signed by the author. Partly because of the weak construction at the rear hinge, which tends to crack, this title has become harder to locate, particularly in fine condition, than his first book. This copy has just a hint of the start of a crack at the lower rear joint and is otherwise fine in a very near fine dust jacket with one tiny, closed edge tear at the heel. With publisher's review slip laid in. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
