        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.

        Codex Seraphinianus, Volumes I and II (SIGNED)

      Franco Maria Ricci (1981), (Milano) - Signed by Author(s). Folio - over 12" to 15" tall. pgs. FIRST EDITIONS, with publisher's letter (signed by publisher) laid into Vol. I, signed by author in Vol. II, with the original boxes. Set number 3442 of 4000 copies (limitation statement in Vol. II). A cult classic when it first appeared, "the book lies in the uneasy boundary between surrealism and fantasy, given an odd literary status by its masquerade as a book of fact" (quote by Baird Searles, in Asimov's Science Fiction, April 1984). With an "alphabet" which was invented by the author, there is a surreal quality to the work. Per Wiki, "In a talk at the Oxford University Society of Bibliophiles held on 11 May 2009, Serafini stated that there is no meaning hidden behind the script of the Codex, which is asemic; that his own experience in writing it was closely similar to automatic writing; and that what he wanted his alphabet to convey to the reader is the sensation that children feel in front of books they cannot yet understand, although they see that the writing does make sense for adults." ***DESCRIPTION: Both volumes bound in midnight black cloth, pictorial pastedowns on the front covers, different on each volume, with gilt decorations and lettering on the front boards and spines, decorated endpapers, lavishly and fantastically illustrated in full colour, Serafini's unique alphabet on each page; folio size (text block approximately 13.5" tall); volume is paginated in the author's invented alphabet/numbering; a quick count of leaves produces approximately 192 pages in Volume I and 198 pages in Volume II; Volume I has a letter from the publisher (in Italian), signed by him, loosely laid in; Volume II is signed by the author on the colophon page with the limitation number stamped of 3442 (of 4000). Each book is enclosed in the publisher's box of black cloth, lined with black laid paper, both sides with decorated paper pastedowns and paper spine labels; there are small, vintage price stickers on the back of each box with the price of $300/set. ***CONDITION: Both volumes are fine overall, with clean bindings, the pastedowns perfect and unrubbed, all corners are perfectly straight; strong, square text blocks, solid hinges, the interiors are clean and bright, and both volumes are entirely free of prior owner markings; some of the corners are showing a minimal amount of rubbing, else fine. The boxes are near fine, each being strong and sturdy, with a minimal amount of wear. ***POSTAGE: Due to the weight of the set, additional postage may apply; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions, we are here to help. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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.

Due to the fact that Thami Mnyele and 13 other cultural workers were murdered in Gabarone , Botswana by the SADF in the early hours of 14 June 1985 in a covert cross-border raid MEDU ceased to exist from this day forward.

As a result very few original posters survive today, in some cases one estimates less than 5 copies. In some cases only 50 or 80 copies were printed which were all made by hand and were usually silkscreened.

        to Bird with love

      Poitiers: Editions Wizlov,, 1981. Folio. Original maroon textured boards with inset "address label," housed in the original laminated "parcel" tray box with lid. Profusely illustrated. Corners of the box split, and scuffed some minor stripping of the laminate, overall a very good copy. First and only edition, no limitation but hard to find, particularly in the fragile, entirely integral box. Visually superb, très émouvant memorial to Parker, reproducing the pictorial and documentary archive about which Chan, his lover, had "cared enough to preserve religiously."
