        Archive of manuscript material and presentation copies of books from the estate of Elizabeth Hall, formerly managing editor of Psychology Today, from Nobel Prize winning ethologist Nikolaas Tinbergen (1907-1988) and psychologist Bruno Bettelheim (1903-1990) dating from 1973-1981

      various, 1981. Very Good. A fascinating archive of manuscript material and presentation copies of books from the estate of Elizabeth Hall, formerly managing editor of Psychology Today, from Nobel Prize winning ethologist Nikolaas Tinbergen (1907-1988) and psychologist Bruno Bettelheim (1903-1990) dating from 1973-1981. In 1973 Hall interviewed Tinbergen for Psychology Today; the correspondence deals both with the lead-up to the interview and especially the extended conversation that resulted afterwards. Hall later interviewed Bettelheim for the magazine as well, due in no small part to his published work on autistic children, a subject that interested Tinbergen late in his career. Archive includes an eight-page single-space typed autobiographical statement (approximately 6250 words) by Tinbergen with numerous ink corrections and emendations in his hand; ten typed letters and two autograph letters signed from Tinbergen to Hall, and a presentation copy to Hall (at High Slakes) of a later printing of Tinbergen's major work, The Herring Gull's World (1961). The material from Bettelheim includes two typed letters signed to Hall (1981), one typed letter signed from Bettelheim to Howard Munson (1978), another former managing editor at Psychology Today, and presentation copies inscribed to Hall of Bettelheim's Surviving and other essays (1979; first edition paperback) and The Empty Fortress: Infantile Autism and the Birth of the Self (1972; later printing). & & A detailed description of the material is available.

        VINTAGE FILM SCRIPT) KING OF COMEDY, THE (1982)

      20th Century Fox 1981 - (Original vintage screenplay for the 1982 film) Los Angeles, CA: Twentieth Century-Fox, ca. 1981. Final Draft script for the 1982 film. Copy belonging to sound mixer Les Lazarowitz, with his holograph name to the title page. Noted as copy No. 78 in green holograph ink at the top right corner of same. Perhaps Scorsese's most underrated film, "The King of Comedy" is a brilliant study of celebrity worship and American media culture by way of an exploratory journey into the mind of Rupert Pupkin, a man totally lacking in self-awareness, driven only by obsession. The titular character is played by Robert De Niro, cast completely against type, in furious pursuit of his idol, Jerry Lewis (Lewis playing a character named Jerry Langford in the film), along with the genius addition of Sandra Bernhard as De Niro's crazed groupie assistant. Joyce Millman of "Salon" called "The King of Comedy" "Martin Scorsese's second least popular movie, after "The Last Temptation of Christ". Which is a shame, because it's Scorsese's second greatest film, after "Taxi Driver"." Set and shot on location in and around New York. And, actually, this film is not so distant a cousin to "Taxi Driver"; in both films, De Niro goes on a journey of obsessiveness, leading to virtual madness, and then, somehow, survives. Brown studio wrappers, with credits for screenwriter Zimmerman. Title page present, noted as FINAL DRAFT, with credits for screenwriter Zimmerman. 105 leaves, mimeograph. Collation: [Note: holograph notation pencil and black and green ink as indicated.] [title, notation], 1-68, 70-105. Pages VERY GOOD+, wrapper VERY GOOD+ bound with two gold screw brads.

        Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, Hannibal Rising

Each volume is signed by Thomas Harris and each are fine in fine dust jackets. A very sharp set, uncommon signed. Stephen King wrote of Red Dragon, the first novel in series: "The book simply comes at you and comes at you, finally leaving you shaken and sober and afraid on a deeper level than simple &#39;thrills&#39; alone furnish." "Red Dragon is, quite simply, the most frightening book I have ever read, and surely belongs in the best 100 horror volumes. I&#39;d be tempted to place it in the top ten&#133; It is an intensely visual novel, rich with sound and color and telling use of small detail to make large points. All of its characters are brilliantly portrayed and it is filled with gritty verisimilitude&#133; Read it, shiver at it, remember it-for you will be unable to forget it. It is as real as fiction can be and as frightening" (Horror 100 Best Books). Each book has been been made into film, one of which, The Silence of the Lambs went on to win five Academy Awards.

        Endless Night: Photographs by Miyako Ishiuchi (First Edition, in Slipcase)

      Asahi Sonorama, Tokyo 1981 - First edition, first printing. Soft cover. Photographically illustrated French-fold wrappers; no dust jacket as issued; contained in a cardboard slipcase with printed label. Photographs by Miyako Ishiuchi. Edited and with an essay by Akira Hasegawa. Text in Japanese and English. Includes a brief chronology. Unpaginated, with 90 black-and-white plates. 11-1/4 x 8-1/2 inches. CONDITION: Near Fine (1/2-inch stain to several pages at the bottom edge of the text block, else As New). In Ishiuchi's third book, the artist returns to her hometown of Yokosuka to record the remains of an abandoned brothel. As ususal, her eye for poignant details amid the ruins of this once-vibrant space brings to mind a reverence for the lives that passed through these walls and the irreversible passage of time.Ishiuchi is the winner of the 2014 Hasselblad Award. From the Hasselblad Foundation: "During a period of 35 years Miyako Ishiuchi has established an international career, which is both impressive and highly significant. Her strength of character and uncompromising vision has resulted in some of the most powerful as well as personal representations of postwar Japan. Ishiuchi's work is extremely coherent and developing in a determined and distinctive way; using the camera and all of its aesthetic potential to investigate the intersection of the political and the personal aspects of memory Ishiuchi has been both a pioneer and a role model for younger artists, not least as a woman working in the male-dominated field of Japanese photography. She has continued to innovate, explore and agitate throughout her career, both in terms of ideas and of her style and approach." [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Spanking the Maid

      Bloomfield Hills, MI [Columbia, SC]: Bruccoli Clark, 1981 Bloomfield Hills, MI and Columbia, SC: Bruccoli Clark, 1981. First Edition. Illustrated by Erica (Rikki) Ducornet. Quarto, 53 pp. As new, pristine and flawless. The special signed, limited edition - of 95 copies only - in cushioned red silk fine binding, gilt imprinting, Artemis paper, marbled endpapers, and with a page of Coover&#39;s own fair-copy handwritten manuscript tipped in on the verso of the half-title. Not to be confused with the larger limited run of 505 copies, this one is definitely meant for display; a stunning visual treat. Coover&#39;s often [and usually humorously] misunderstood farce-masterpiece of soft erotica and allegory, in its most collectible form; buy the trade issue if you want to read it. Visual sumptuousness of the book itself befits the character of the tale, and soft, symbolic illustrations by Rikki (Erica Ducornet) carry the tone. Eye candy on the cocktail table, but cosset it between soirees. One of Daphne Merkin&#39;s favorite S/M books. lg4

        Roadkills: A Collection of Prose and Poetry (Signed Limited Edition with Portfolio of Signed Prints)

      East Hampton: Cheloniidae Press, 1981. Limited Edition . Hardcover. Fine. This is a signed deluxe limited edition of \"Roadkills: A Collection of Prose and Poetry\" published by the Cheloniidae Press, Easthampton in 1981 with a limitation of 50 copies this being number XXXIX. \"Roadkills\" is Alan James Robinson\'s third publication to which he contributed the illustrations and searched out fellow roadkill enthusiasts Gillian Conoley, Madeline DeFrees, Richard Eberhart, John McPhee, Gary Snyder, and William Stafford to provide the prose and poetry to the project. Although the topic sounds very quirky, the illustrator and authors do a remarkable job in handling this often encountered and frequently ignored slice of reality with dignity and grace. \"Roadkills\" was produced in an edition of 250 and fifty deluxe copies containing an additional suite of prints. The present copy is one of the fifty deluxe editions signed by the artist and all six authors. The wood engravings were printed on Cha-u-ke paper, and the etching and text on Sakomoto and Mulberry paper. All printing was done at Harold McGrath\'s Hampshire Typothetae, except for the single etching printed by the artist at the Cheloniidae Press. Measuring approximately 12.25 by 9.25 inches, \"Road Kills\" is a fascinating artists book that is bound in quarter grey moroccan goat and black Japanese paper covered boards with a \"tire tread\" design along the edges of the leather. The suite of signed and numbered illustrations are contained in a black cloth chemise. The book and illustrations are both housed in a clamshell box that is made of the same material and design as the book. The book, chemise and clamshell box are in FINE- condition with some minor soiling to the boards.

        Falkland Road: [prostitutes of Bombay] - Signed 1981 1st Edition

      Thames and Hudson 1981 - "Falkland Road is a notorious street of prostitutes in Bombay. It is like any busy lower-class street in Bombay, densely populated by vendors, merchants and shops, but also overcrowded with girls, from 11-year-olds to 65-year-old ex-madams. Mary Ellen Mark's extraordinary portrait of Falkland Road was first published in 1981 and has long been recognized as one of the major bodies of work in the canon of this significant Magnum photographer. The book contains 65 photographs made over six weeks that show the daily life lived by the women (and men) of the street. Mark's images are beautiful, electric, shocking and remarkable for their emotional power and for the visceral brilliance of their colour. Together with Mark's captions and introductory text, Falkland Road is an astonishing work of insight into a raw and frightening world, made accessible by the completeness of the photographer's involvement, by her humanity, and by the way she captures the variety of individual life and the colour, passion and tenderness that still abide there."

        Codex Seraphinianus Deluxe Edition

      Milano: Rizzoli. 2013. First Edition. Hardcover. 9780847843091 . New revised edition with several additional drawings. Originally published by Franco Maria Ricci in 1981. Limited to 600 numbered copies: 300 for the Italian market, and 300 for the U.S. market. This copy (#20) is part of the Italian edition, which precedes the American edition. Includes the limited, signed Ta-Roc print (#95 of 150). Bright red decorated cloth, yellow endpapers, silk bookmark. The Decodex, a small booklet in a pocket affixed to the rear pastedown endpaper with text in Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian, contains a short introduction by Serafini in which he explains how the Codex came to be. Apparently, a cat was actively involved in the creative process. The book is a masterpiece of fantasy, painstakingly illustrating a non-existent world and written in a non-existent language which, at times, seems to be a surrealist parody of our own world. Serafini, an architect and graphic designer, wrote and illustrated the volumes during a two-year period in the late 1970s. In the beautiful red cloth clamshell box with gold decorations. Both the book and the box are in fine condition. This copy comes with the original publisher&#39;s cardboard box as well. ; Folio; Signed by Author .

        SELECTED ESSAYS OF FREDRIK BARTH: VOLUME I: PROCESS AND FORM IN SOCIAL LIFE; VOLUME II: FEATURES OF PERSON AND SOCIETY IN SWAT: COLLECTED ESSAYS ON PATHANS (0710007205 and 0710006209)

      LONDON: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1981. First Edition. HARDCOVER. NEAR FINE IN NEAR FINE DUST JACKETS. An offering of Routledge and Kegan Paul&#39;s INTERNATIONAL LIBRARY OF ANTHROPOLOGY (Series Editor Adam Kuper, University of Leiden). Professor Barth is a Norwegian anthropologist educated at the Universities of Chicago and Cambridge who is perhaps best known for his methodological dictum that "everything influencing the shape of an event must be there asserting itself at the moment of the event." The first volume (243 pp. including index) in this two-volume series contains a selection from the period 1955-1972, with two additional essays written especially for this collection. The essays therein "reflect Professor Barth&#39;s particular concern with the need to acknowledge the position of the individual and with the discongruity between varying interests and varying levels of collectivity...Among topics covered...are: models of social organization; the study of social change; descent and marriage; nomad-sedentary relations in the Middle East; and ethnic groups and boundaries." The second volume (190 pp.,including index) of Professor Barth&#39;s collected essays brings together his studies and writings on the Swat Pathan society in North Pakistan which include very early ecological analysis, application of the theory of games to the Swat Pathan political system, "...an analysis of social stratification and caste, and the various processes at work in ethnic differentiation and identity in a situation of social inequality..." With exception of 3 lightly- and one moderately-bumped bottom corner(s) and some light shelfwear to dustjackets, the two volumes are near new condition.
