        Ox Bow: An American Incident [Ox-Bow] (Original playscript for the unproduced musical)

      New York: N.p., 1981. Draft script for the unproduced musical. Based on Walter van Tilburg Clark's 1940 novel, which then became a classic American film directed by William Wellman about mob rule in the nineteenth-century American West. Nearly unique among American films, in that it has the setting of a Western, but the tone of a gothic melodrama, and a decidedly downbeat ending. (We imagine the tone of this 1980s adaptation to be uncharacteristically downbeat for a musical, as well!) Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture. Play adaptation written by Jim Lowe: one-hit-wonder singer of the 1956 chart-topper "The Green Door." Lowe later attempted this failed musical adaptation with composer/lyricist Richard Riddle (who wrote songs for the 1987 off-Broadway Western "Cowboy" as well), and found longer-lasting success as a disc jockey spinning big band music on New York radio. Set in Bridgers Wells, Nevada. Red titled Studio Duplicating Service wrappers. Title page present, noted as copy No. 17, with credits for writer Jim Lowe, composer Richard Riddle, and novelist Walter van Tilburg Clark. 72 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 2-3-69. Photographically reproduced, first generation copy with no copied punch holes. Pages Fine, wrapper Near Fine bound with two gold screw brads.

        Scrap Book 1900-1981

      First edition; 4to; original buckram and dust jacket. Inscribed on the half title "for Rosamond & John" by the author; the page has also been enhanced with a colour drawing by Penrose. Loosely inserted are two author signed letters and a post card from Penrose to Rosamond [Bernier]and John [Russell]. The first letter is embellished with colour designs by Penrose and is additionally signed by Lee Miller, they apologise for not being able to travel to Rosamond and John's wedding. There are three further pieces of ephemera, an envelope with a collage inscription by Penrose, containing his obituary from the Financial Time, an invitation to an exhibition of his collages and finally a photograph of Rosamond mounted on card, inscribed by Penrose " A figurative picture of darling Rosamond turn over a new leaf. Farley Farm August 1976. With much love Roland." Roland Penrose (1900-1984) was an artist, historian and poet. He was a major promoter and collector of modern art and an associate of the surrealist movement. Elizabeth "Lee" Miller, (1907-1977), was an American photographer. Born in Poughkeepsie, New York, in 1907, she was a successful fashion model in New York City in the 1920s before going to Paris, where she became an established fashion and fine art photographer. During the Second World War, she became an acclaimed war correspondent for Vogue, covering events such as the London Blitz, the liberation of Paris, and the concentration camps at Buchenwald and Dachau. Rosamond (Peggy) Bernier (1916-2016) was educated in France, in England and at Sarah Lawrence College. After World War II she spent more than twenty years in Paris, initially as European features editor for VOGUE magazine. She became friends with Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Fernand Léger, Joan Miró, Max Ernst and Alberto Giacometti. She was often the first writer to get into print with new achievements in art that have since acquired landmark status. Among these were the Matisse chapel in Vence and the ensemble of paintings by Picasso in the Chateau d'Antibes. It was at Picasso's suggestion that she went to Barcelona and became the first person to report on the important collection of early works -- later to become the nucleus of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona -- that he had left there with his family many years before. After returning to the United States in 1971 she began a new career as a lecturer. It was immediately clear that she had exceptional gifts as a speaker. (Leonard Bernstein, for instance, wrote, "Madame Bernier has the gift of instant communication to a degree which I have rarely encountered.") A fine copy in a very good dust jacket, with a little wear to the extremities.

        Superman: multi-panel page of original Sunday newspaper strip artwork by George Tuska, black ink on Strathmore paper. Dated, upper left, "Sunday, 9-13"

      New York: D.C. Comics, Inc, 1981. 1 vols. 16 x 22 inches. Fine. 1 vols. 16 x 22 inches. A vigorous multi-panel drawing, by Tuska, fully lettered, of the exploits of the first and greatest superhero. Tuska specialized in particularly intense action scenes; he also illustrated such series as Green Lantern, Teen Titans, Justice League, Infinity, and Power Man. A fine, original example of 1970s action comic art. George Tuska finished his studies at the National Academy School of Art at age 21. In 1939, he became John Terry's assistant on 'Scorchy Smith'. At the same time, he joined the graphic studios of Jerry Iger and Will Eisner. There he worked on several comic books, like 'Jungle', 'Wings', 'Planet Wonderworld' and 'Mystery Men'. In the 1940s, Tuska created the character 'Hercule' for Quality Comics and, as a member of Studio Chesler, he drew several episodes of 'Captain Marvel', 'Golden Arrow', 'Uncle Sam' and 'El Carim'. Tuska was mobilized during World War II, so he had to postpone his comic activities. After the war, he continued in the comic field with 'The Crime Does Not Pay', and as the illustrator on 'Scorchy Smith'. In 1959, he took over the daily and weekly 'Buck Rogers' pages, which he continued until 1967. In the late 1960s, Tuska started working for Marvel, where he contributed to the series 'Ghost Rider', 'Planet of the Apes', 'X-Men', 'Daredevil' and 'Iron Man'. He continued drawing superhero comics for DC, like 'Superman', 'Superboy' and 'Challengers of the Unknown'. In 1978, along with José Delbo, Paul Kupperberg and Martin Pasko, Tuska started a new version of the daily 'Superman' comic. Tuska worked on this series until 1993.

      Buenos Aires: Editorial Sudamericana, 1967/Bogota-Colombia: Editorial La Oveja Negra, 1981 - 2 works together, octavo. Cien años: perfect bound octavo; white card wrappers as issued, pictorial decoration to front wrapper in black, orange, and blue, titles to spine and text to rear wrapper in black. Housed in a dark blue cloth solander box. Cronica: original navy boards, titles to spine in white. With the dust jacket. Cien años: Extremities rubbed, spine creased and rolled, wear and some small marks to rear wrapper, leaves tanned at margins but otherwise clean; a very good copy. Cronica: Ends and corners nicked, mild toning to margins of leaves, but an excellent copy in the somewhat chipped jacket. Both copies warmly and wittily inscribed by Marquez in 1981, the first on the first blank "Para Silvia, de mi corazón cuando me quería a mí y no a ese hombre; con toda mi alma de antes, GABM 1981" ("To Silvia, from the bottom of my heart, when she used to love me and not that man; with all my erstwhile love, GABM 1981"), and the second on the dedication page, "Para Silvia y Rodolfo, este libro que los persigue desde hace mucho tiempo por todos los aeropuertos del mundo; con un abrazo grande, GABM.Z 81" ("To Silvia and Rodolfo, this book that has been chasing you for a long time through all the world's airports, with a big hug, GABM.Z 81"). Silvia Ripstein, actress under the stage name Daniela Rosen and sister of the Mexican filmmaker Arturo Ripstein (b. 1943), was married to Rodolfo Echeverría, brother of Luis Echeverría, who served as President of Mexico from 1970 to 1976. Rodolfo was also an actor and in later years head of the screen actors union there. Arturo Ripstein's first film was Tiempo de morir (1966), the screenplay adapted by Gabriel García Márquez and Carlos Fuentes from an original story by Gabriel García Márquez. Cien años de soledad is the true first edition in the correctly illustrated wrappers (with the ship and three yellow flowers, changed in later printings at Marquez's insistence). Cronica de una muerte anunciada is the Colombian first edition, first published simultaneously in Colombia, Mexico, and Spain (on the "follow the flag" principle, the Colombian is the most desirable).

It is estimated that Prince Charles receives his trust from The Duchy of Cornwall, with an annual income of nearly £12 million from his Duchy of Cornwall estate, however he is not permitted to sell off property or use the Duchy's capital. The thank you letter from Prince Charles and Princess Diana reflects their deep affection for the Duchy which is written as follows:""Dear Mr. Parkyn,We would both like to thank you very much indeed for your most kind contribution to the wedding present which the Duchy has given us.We are delighted with the mahogany library table which will look splendid in our home at Highgrove and is exactly the right period for the house. We were also most touched to received the balance of the gift in the form of a cheque with which we shall probably buy some more furniture. As you can well imagine, with two houses to equip from scratch we have quite a difficult task ahead of us!We have been completely overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity which so many people have shown us, but as you know we will have a very special affection for the Duchy and all those who live and work in it and we therefor particularly appreciate your gift. We look forward very much to visiting the Duchy together in the future.Yours most sincerely,Charles and Diana""The Duchy of Cornwall is a well-managed private estate, which was established by Edward III in 1337. The revenues from the estate are passed to HRH The Prince of Wales and Duke of Cornwall, who chooses to use them to fund his public, charitable and private activities and those of his family. The Duchy consists of around 53,000 hectares of land in 23 counties, mostly in the South West of England. The principal activity of the Duchy is the sustainable, commercial management of its land and properties. The Duchy also has a financial investment portfolio., and its primary function was to provide all future Princes of Wales with an income from its assets. The Duke of Cornwall traditionally manages their estates under the charter that the long term value of the estate can not be compromised.The Duchy’s 1337 charter established that The Duke of Cornwall, is the eldest surviving son of the monarch and the Heir to The Throne (currently and still Charles, Prince of Wales). When the current Prince of Wales accedes the throne, Prince William will become Duke of Cornwall.An important thank you letter written by Prince Charles and Princess Diana, to an entity that has looked after The Prince of Wales and Duke of Cornwall for almost 700 years!"
