        "FIELD HANDS"

      Lafayette:. circa 1981-83. Mixed media of principally pastels, measuring 26 x 36 inches. Matted and framed under glass in gold-burnished, brown wood frame with inner scroll. Field workers, men and women, hoes hoisted on shoulders, pausing to watch the sun rise over the trees. William Tolliver (1951-2000) was a brilliant self-taught, Mississippi-born artist. He arose during the mid-1980's as a brilliant regional talent, an individual impelled by a desire to capture the landscapes and peoples of his native deep South. Whether dealing with everyday workers or back-alley jazzmen, he conveys a universal message through the common human experience. He was born in Vicksburg. His mother worked in the cotton fields by day, but also raised 14 children. To stimulate their interest in learning, she often challenged William and his older brother to drawing contests. Discovering William’s talent, she borrowed art books from the library that exposed her son to the works of the European masters. At age 14, Tolliver dropped out of school and left Mississippi to join the Job Corps program in Los Angeles. During his year-and-a-half stint with Job Corps, he studied carpentry at a government-sponsored trade school. Assisted by an instructor at the trade school who was also a visual artist, Tolliver received additional instruction and information about the techniques of painting. He married in 1977 and, in 1981, he moved his family to Lafayette, Louisiana, where an oil boom had created employment opportunities in the construction trades. In Lafayette, he worked as a wallpaper hanger and a house painter. Two years later, however, the city’s building industry fell into decline, leaving Tolliver unemployed. Laid off from his job and without income, he set out to relax in his free hours by painting with his daughters paint kit. Tolliver soon began to paint in a new and unique style that has been termed "representational abstract expressionism." Able to work in numerous mediums- oil, acrylic, watercolor, oil pastel, and dimensional reliefs- Tolliver was forever exploring new techniques.Critically ranked with such famous African American artists as Romare Bearden and Jacob Lawrence, Tolliver soon gained the reputation as one of America’s most renowned contemporary artists. He has received numerous awards and recognitions for his contributions in the field of art. He also produced the poster for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, the city where he finally settled.

        CORRESPONDENCE ARCHIVE CONSISTING OF 28 TYPED LETTERS [INCLUDING 1 HAND SIGNED] + 7 CHRISTMAS CARDS [2 OF WHICH ARE HAND SIGNED] + 1 BIRTHDAY CARD [MOST ITEMS WITH THE ACCOMPANYING ENVELOPES, ONE OF WHICH HAS A HAND PRINTED RETURN ADDRESS]

      Minneapolis, MN: Carl Jacobi 1981-1988, 1981 First editions. Original correspondence from Carl Jacobi to R. Dixon Smith [Jacobi's biographer and at one time his literary executor] during the years 1981 to 1988 [using varying paper, envelopes, etc]. Due to serious health limitations, from the 1970s onward Jacobi infrequently wrote anything by hand [including his signature, which he instead often typed as "CARL" as with the majority of letters included herein], and when he did it was typically done in a printed rather than cursive manner. One of the letters [discussing the loss of pet cats, in particular his own "Higgins"], and two of the Christmas cards, bear his hand printed "CARL" plus one of the envelopes has his return address, including "JACOBI", hand printed on its reverse side. Generally one or two pages in length [but with a few as long as six pages] although the number of lines per piece varies considerably. The content covers a number of subjects including the author's own work, etc. Also present are some related enclosures [including a signed letter from Hugh B. Cave and another from Robert M. Price] plus a few addressed but empty envelopes. Overall VG+ or better condition [that is, pretty much in the same condition as when received by Smith, save for being opened and read]. A total of 36+ pieces, four or which are hand signed examples, offered together as a single lot.. First Edition. Unbound. Very Good.

        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 (#29) is part of the Italian edition, which precedes the American edition. Includes the limited, signed Ta-Roc print (#109 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's cardboard box as well. ; Folio; Signed by Author .

        Legenda aurea

      An Early Copy of the Most Popular Dominican Work,with a Provenance from a Great Dominican ConventVORAGINE, Jacobus de. Legenda aurea. Italy (Venice?): 1300.Illuminated manuscript on vellum. Small quarto (8 x 5 9/16 inches; 203 x 142 mm.). 281 leaves, plus one blank leaf at front and two blank leaves at end (fols. 279 and 281 apparently conjoint with two blank vellum leaves, fol. 280 on a stub between the foliated leaves). Apparently complete. Two columns of thirty-four lines. Written by two Italian scribes in black ink in gothic bookhands between four verticals and thirty-five horizontals ruled in faint brown, the verticals extending across the margins. Justification: 5 1/4 x 3 7/8 inches; 133 x 98 mm. Faint early ink foliation. Horizontal catchwords within ink frames in lower right margin of final versos. Pricking along the upper edges. Rubrics in red, paragraph marks alternately of red or blue, alternately red or blue one-line initials for the list of contents (fols. 1v-2), numerous two-line initials alternately in red flourished with blue or blue flourished with red, with penwork usually extending for the height of the text column, opening six-line historiated initial showing a tonsured cleric kneeling before the seated Virgin with Child against a background of burnished gold, accompanied by a cusped border with leaf terminals where a tree separates a stag from a pursuing hound. Some neat annotations and corrections in the margins with a few pointing hands.Nineteenth-century limp vellum, with yapp edges. Spine lettered in gilt. Opening rubric and historiated initial slightly rubbed. Marginal staining on edges of some leaves, small cuts or tears to margins of some leaves, some natural vellum flaws. Housed in a full morocco clamshell.Content:Prologue, opening: "Universum tempus presentis" (fol. 1r and v); List of Contents (fols. 1v-2); sixtyfive chapters, from "de adventu," opening" Adventus domini per quattuor septimanas" (fol. 2), to "de dedicatione ecclesie," ending "per secula seculorum Amen" (fols. 275v-281v).Jacobus de Voragine, who became a Dominican in 1244 and died in 1298, after six years as bishop of Genoa, wrote various works of which the Golden Legend, perhaps of the 1260s, was by far the most successful. A compilation to accompany the major feasts in the church calendar, the Golden Legend details the lives and miracles of saints and explicates events in the lives of Christ and the Virgin, ordered according to the liturgical year. It must have been the most widely consulted authority on these matters and is consequently an invaluable insight into what was generally known by writers, artists, and their patrons. About a thousand manuscripts survive, in the original Latin and in translation, and about a hundred printed editions had appeared before the sixteenth century. The original text of 176 chapters was expanded over the years with updatings and with feasts specific to certain localities.This manuscript, which has a limited selection of feasts and shows little evidence of later accretions, was probably written towards 1300. Each of the sixty-five chapters and the etymological discussions that precede them is introduced by a flourished initial. Its subsequent ownership by a Dominican who left it to his first convent indicates that the Golden Legend was still fulfilling its probable original function of assisting the Dominicans in their preaching mission.Illumination:The historiated initial, flourished initials, and border decoration are northern French or south Netherlandish in character. The border motifs on f. 1 are very close, for instance, to those in a copy of Thomas Aquinas's Summa given to the Flemish abbey of Ter Doest ca. 1280-1290 (Bruges, Staatsbib. Ms 199: Vlaamse Kunst op Perkament, Bruges, Gruuthusemuseum (1981). The decoration was presumably executed by an illuminator who had travelled to Italy. A parallel case is presented by the northern French or Flemish illuminator whose hand has been detected in Neapolitan manuscripts of ca. 1330 (Dix siecles d'enluminure italienne, BnF, 1984, pp. 73-74) and illuminators from Ypres are known to have worked in Naples at around this date. Combining Italian script and northern illumination, the book is an intriguing reminder of the mobility of book craftsmen.Provenance:1. Perhaps made for the tonsured cleric seen in the opening initial.2. Nicolaus Augustus de Venetiis: record of bequest to SS Giovanni e Paolo, Venice, on verso of first parchment leaf; a similar note on the recto of the penultimate vellum leaf, but as "N augustus," and with the added prayer "requiescat in pace." Nicolaus entered the Dominican Order at the convent of SS Giovanni e Paolo, received his licentiate from Bologna University in 1413, and taught in Padua and Bologna. In 1438, he was appointed to the bishopric of Tricarico in southern Italy; he wrote a summary of the issues discussed at the Council of Florence between the Greek and Roman churches and died in Rome in 1446 (T. Kaeppeli and E. Panelli, Scriptori Ordinis Praedicatorum Medii Aevi, IV, 1993, pp. 202-203).3. Dominican Convent SS Giovanni et Paolo, Venice: by the late fifteenth century their library was of sufficient importance to be the intended recipient of Cardinal Bessarion's collection of Greek and Latin texts.

        The Night of the Falcon

      St Martins Pr, 1981. First edition. Hardcover. Good +/good +. G+ hardcover in G+ jacket. First Edition/First printing. SIGNED/Inscribed by author on FFEP. Light black mark to bottom text edge. Mild edge/cornerwear. Light scuffs. Binding solid. Page faces all clean. Binding solid. Jacket unclipped and clean. What appears to be a paperclip indention to front top edge. Corner nicked along with two short tears to edges. Clean/solid. 206 pp. What makes this particular book so valuable is that it is SIGNED by the author, James Oxford - a Pseudonym for a " Best selling Author known to millions" as the jacket states. The Inscription reads; "To __, with love James Oxford a.k.a. Rick Raphael - 1981". Raphael, author of 'Code Three' and other Sci fi favorites was thought to be commisioned to ghost write Night of the Falcon by Marvin H. Albert who originally was suppose to write the book but hired Raphael in the end. Raphael's signature matches other's I've checked it against, however there is no public listing or reference for who exactly the James Oxford Pseudonym is/was. In turn, my price reflects this being the first (and only as of now) book shedding light on this information. 206 pp.

        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.

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]
