        Familiar Street Scenes

      First edition, limited to 500 copies. 247 by 267mm. Unpaginated. 47 colour plates. Black cloth with title and author stamped in English in silver on upper board and in Japanese on the spine. White card slip-case with a photograph on its front and the title and author printed in black in English and Japanese. Slip-case is protected by a plastic wrapper. Both book and case are in fine condition.The photographs in this, the last of Gocho's three published works were taken between April 1978 and October 1980. As with his other work, there is a sense of Gocho's detachment from the world around him, born in part perhaps from his own difficult circumstances. He was born in 1946 with a rare degenerative illness which prevented him from growing to full adult height; he was only four feet tall. Furthermore Gocho knew from an early age that he would not live beyond middle age; he died in 1983. "Shigeo Gochō's final series, Familiar Street Scenes, marks a significant departure from the style of portraits for which he had become known. He used color film for the first time and sought out fleeting formal patterns in the bustle and flow of the streets of downtown Tokyo while moving closer to his subjects, which he then presented in larger, bold prints. The diminished distance between the photographer and his subjects leads to a more confrontational relationship. Though some return his gaze, their expressions convey an admonishment rather than a shared acceptance". (Catalogue of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston)

        DANGLING IN THE TOURNEFORTIA

      Santa Barbara: Black Sparrow, 1981. First edition, signed limited and enhanced. Hardcover. A very good plus, to near fine, clean copy with red backstrip and decorated boards with acetate jacket. #119 of 350 hardcover copies numbered and signed by the author. Occasionally, Bukowski would take a break from the tedium of signing, and, let his mind wander and, he would write down whatever came into his head in that instant. Like a mental erection, that had to explode on the page, and, in this copy, though only his signature was called for, he wrote down his thoughts; "People Who Constantly / Talk About "Love" / Remind Me Very Much / Of A Pair Of Gloves / Lost In That Compart- / ment of an automobile / Far To The Right And / Forgotten Until Found / In A Junkyard A / Decade Later To Be / Worn Upon The / Hands Of A / Sadist. For Further / Use." Signed "Charles Bukowski." With two original drawings, a dog, and a large flower. A one-of-a-kind copy, 281pp of poetry with an impromptue short story at the end!

        Valis

      New York: Bantam Books, 1981. 8vo. 204pp. Lacking one leaf (pp.101-2), possibly from the time of binding. Original green printed wrappers, green linen backstrip, publication date of January 1, 1981 changed in manuscript to February. Scarce proof of Dick's 'Valis', of which only a small number were prepared (by one account only 19 copies), none of which were sent to reviewers. The leaf adjacent to the lacking leaf is slightly extended from the block and discolored along the fore-edge. Although it is possible that these two leaves were at one point sprung, the tightness of the binding and lack of an obvious gap at the gutter suggest the binding error may have been present from the start. Laid-in is Bantam's "Brief Description" for the book, mimeographed typescript, 4to, three paragraphs.

        Presentation volume commemorating the opening of King Abdulaziz International Airport.

      Riyadh: Tihama, [1981] - Original button-fastened dark red leatherette folio presentation box (415 × 260 mm), gilded metal roundel with relief of the hajj terminal mounted to front panel, green velvet lining. Containing 3 pamphlets in pictorial wrappers (2 wire-stitched) and a large (80 mm diameter) commemorative coin engraved with a relief portrait of King Abdulaziz, as issued. Leatherette very slightly lifting in isolated sections along edges on rear panel with a few faint creases, one pamphlet ("Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Defence and Aviation International Airports Projects") lightly rubbed at extremities, coin with one very faint scratch to verso. Overall very good. Pamphlets all with text in Arabic and English, and illustrated throughout from colour photographs. King Abdulaziz International Airport, Jeddah, was opened in 1981, and was the first airport in the world to contain a hajj terminal specifically for Muslims making the pilgrimage to Mecca. It was designed by the noted Bangladeshi-American engineer Fazlur Rahman Khan, and was awarded the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 1983 chiefly for its innovative tent-like roofing system. One pamphlet, titled "King Abdulaziz International Airport", in wrappers printed with symbols for amenities, comprises sections titled "Asset to the Kingdom", "A City Within a City", "Gateway to Mecca", and "World's Newest Airport". Another, "King Abdulaziz International Airport – Jeddah", in wrappers illustrated with photographs of Saudi royals, provides a more strictly factual overview of the airport and its facilities. The third pamphlet, "Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Defence and Aviation International Airports Projects", shows the luxury interiors and art collections of the airport's VIP areas.

        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.
