        The Color Purple

      New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1982. First edition of Walker's classic work. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Alice Walker on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Judith Kazdym Leeds. A very nice example. Her third novel, The Color Purple won Alice Walker the 1983 Pulitzer Price, making her the first African-American woman to win one. "While Walker's first two novels end in the promise of good, The Color Purple ends in happiness, reunion and celebration. Walker has said that she took her great-grandmother's life, which included rape and childbearing at age 11, and gave it a happy ending. Once again she had begun with one of her ancestors' stories, completing and transmuting it through her art" (African American Writers, 351). "Critics have both praised and attacked Walker's use of black folk English to capture [protagonist] Celie's perspective. Walker responded, 'Language is an intrinsic part of who we are and what has, for good or evil, happened to us. And, amazingly, it has sustained us more securely than the arms of angels'" (New York Public Library, Books of the Century, 135).

        Original poster: "12 Años de Lucha"

      FPL, N.p. [San Salvador?] 1982 - Poster celebrating the twelfth anniversary of the Fuerzas Populares de Liberación "Farabundo Martí" (FPL). The FPL was one of five Marxist organizations that joined, in 1980, to form the FMLN, which is today the mainstream left party of El Salvador. The still somewhat provisional nature of the alliance in 1982 may be gauged from the fact that in this poster the FPL continues to maintain its own identity, publishing under its own imprint and adding a caption in the lower margin "Miembro del FMLN." Photo-illustrated with five scenes from the Salvadoran civil war, including active scenes combat, surrounding a quote by the Communist revolutionary leader Cayetano Carpio (aka "Marcial"). Not found in OCLC, though web search does turn up a copy at IISH (Netherlands). Photolithograph in colors; 56.5cm x 37.5cm (ca 22-1/4" x 15-1/2"). A vivid, unfaded example, free of wear; Fine.

        Gay Sunshine Interviews. Volume I [and] Volume II. Edited by Winston Leyland.

      San Francisco: Gay Sunshine Press, 1978, 1982 - Two volumes, octavo. Vol. I with original beige cloth, blue titles to spine and front, no jacket as issued, vol. II with original patterned cloth backed boards, gilt title label to spine, white paper sides and gilt titles to front, with the original acetate wrapper. Fine. Photographic portraits. First edition, first printing, publisher's own copies of the rare deluxe signed limited issues of the Gay Sunshine Interviews. The first volume is number three of five hors commerce copies signed by Leyland and five of the interviewees, namely Allen Ginsberg, Peter Orlovsky, John Giorno, Harold Norse, and Lou Harrison (with his entry inscribed "Pleasure, cheers, & love to Winston, from Lou"). This copy is additionally confirmed "Winston Leyland, his copy" on the front endpaper and signed by him on the title page. There were 500 cloth copies of the first volume issued, of which 26 were lettered and signed by Leyland only. The second volume is letter Z of 26 specially bound copies signed by Leyland, and this copy additionally signed by him on the title page. The limitation of the other clothbound copies for the second volume is not stated in the book or the bibliography. The wrappers issue for both volumes is common, but the vast majority of the cloth issues of the Gay Sunshine Press were sold to libraries, and are consequently rare. Winston Leyland (b.1940) was a leading figure in American LGBT publishing and won the Stonewall Book Award in 1980. He established the Gay Sunshine Press in 1975, which was notable for its pioneering anthologies of gay writing from other cultures, and his Gay Sunshine Journal (1970-82) was particularly influential for its interviews with prominent gay writers of the era. Also included here are: William Burroughs, Charles Henri Ford, Jean Genet, Christopher Isherwood, John Rechy, Gore Vidal, Tennessee Williams, Taylor Mead, Edouard Roditi, Ned Rorem, John Wieners, and others. Gay Sunshine A9b and A25b. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Daisies Never Tell

      Sherman Oaks, California: Joesph J. D'Ambrosio, 1982. Limited Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Publishers Slipcase. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Joseph J. D'Ambrosio. This is a story of love and sadness. Nell in the story is the grandmother of the author and illustrator and designer of arguably one of the most beautiful books by D'Ambrosio and of all his works not only of masterfully created pieces of book art but broadsides and prints, this is my personal favorite. I have many D'Ambrosio pieces and have sold may, but I have never called one or another my favorite. This is it. This book was a painful project by the artist and is an homage to both his grandmother and his mentor and fellow printer Mr. Mundell as D'Ambrosio refers to the man who taught him how to use an Adana letterpress. This book is limited to 50 copies and 10 A/P. It is set in 14pt. Joanna and contain, 20 leaves. Each leaf, printed on Rives BFK, is a printed over serigraph. All Serigraphs are produced by hand from handmade stencils. Some of the serigraphs are delicately produced one color flowers and some are as many as ten colors. The first five leaves are hand cut in the form of daisies, which peak through glass portals embedded in the front or the cove. Quite a remarkable presentation.The binding is dark green cowhide and glass over boards; Natsume end papers; clam-shell box of green Canson paper over boards with green felt. This is copy 48 of fifty and is signed by the artist/author on the two leaf title page, which opens to a hand cut garden of daisies. If you are wondering why I would sell my favorite book, it is because I have another copy with a personal inscription. This is a truly wonderful collectible of fine printing/bookmaking and creativity by one of the great book artists of our time, the late Joe D'Ambrosio.

        Shoeless Joe

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin(1982). 1st edition/1st printing. SIGNED and INSCRIBED by the author on the half-title page: 'For Ed Morris With best wishes Bill Kinsella May 24/82 Chicago'. A blind-stamped (no color) embossment directly below that inscription reads 'Library of Edward L. Morris E.L.M.', so the book's previous owner was the person the author's inscription was written to. Straight, clean, very tight book with only that blind-stamp ed embossment to keep it from being 'as new'. The price intact, crisp and clean dustjacket has just a touch of the lower spine end bluing to the green (much less than normal), and a couple of very tiny edge nicks at the flap fold ends, but is otherwise in excellent condition. A lovely copy of this classic which was made into the movie 'Field Of Dreams' and which won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature. A baseball-based fantasy about the power of dreams to move people. ; Signed by Author, 10, 20, NF/NF

        Gay Olympic Games I, 1982. (First edition)

      San Francisco: 1982 - Color poster. 32.5 x 23.6 inch image with double gold leaf border on 35 x 26 inch sheet. Appears to be a silkscreen or possible gouache. The one usually on the market is described as a lithograph and is slightly smaller and has no border. Framed and glazed.(Stock image used in reproduction)Perhaps the best-known story connected with the games is that of the legal proceedings with the U.S. Olympic Committee over the Gay Games' use of the word "Olympic." Using the Olympic Games as a model and in keeping with other events such as the Special Olympics, Waddell had conceived of the "Gay Olympic Games" and publicized it as such. Nineteen days prior to the event, the USOC obtained an injunction forbidding the use of the word "Olympic" in any of the event's materials. Of course, by that time press packets, T-shirts, and posters had already been printed. One can see the evidence of this last-minute name change in the posters and T-shirts produced for the games--some with the words "Gay Olympic Games" and the other with the word "Olympic" blocked out. It was thus that the "Gay Games" were born.

Euting, entre 1876 et 1884 qui ont suscité l'intérêt des scientifiques et des spécialistes des études bibliques, dont les découvertes avaient déjà fourni des documents précieux sur l'état social et religieux en Arabie avant l'Islam.

        Original Artwork

      1982. Three original pen-and-ink S. Clay Wilson illustrations for the German edition of Burroughs' Cities of the Red Night. Wilson was one of the group of artists who gained exposure in the underground comix of the 1960s counterculture. After R. Crumb, he is probably the best known of that group, and his images are almost certainly the most extreme: all of the underground comic artists sought to break barriers and defy convention, and Wilson's images are densely packed and full of overt sex and violence to an extreme degree. In this he was very much like Burroughs, whose verbal imagery and subject matter sought to shatter barriers, preconceptions and hypocrisies; the collaboration between the two of them seems in retrospect to have been inevitable. These drawings were displayed at the Los Angeles County Art Museum in the show "Ports of Entry: William Burroughs and the Arts," which sought to convey the influence Burroughs had had on visual arts. Extraordinary images, and probably the best illustrations ever of Burroughs' writings. Burroughs himself appears as a character in one of the images. Two of the images are 5-1/4" x 9", the third is 5-1/4" x 10"; all three are matted and framed to approximately 16" x 19". Fine. No Binding. Fine.

Presents Robert Rauschenberg's "Photos In + Out City Limits: New York". The great artist's collection of black-and-white photographs on New York City. It is the partial fulfillment of his 30-year-old wish to photograph the entire United States, a project he never completed. Showcases his unique approach to photography as a process of discovery, selection, and assemblage of objects from everyday life. One of the least well-known facts about Rauschenberg is that he began his career as a photographer. He makes no distinction between his photography and his painting, and he brings the same acute eye to both. The photographs, like the paintings, are formally rigorous, sensuous, and piercing. His celebrated method of appropriating found images and objects to capture the fabric, tempo, and "feel" of modern life is photographically-inspired and characterizes his large body of work. The idea of appropriation is not unique to Rauschenberg. It is a central tenet of Surrealism and continues to be the latter Movement's enduring legacy. What makes Rauschenberg's work unique is the way he has "set in motion an interplay of shapes in which the human form is integrated to a rigorous yet flamboyant sense of design, pictures in which art and real life coincide" (Pontus Hulten). "A protean genius who showed America that all of life could be open to art. Rauschenberg didn't give a fig for consistency or curating his reputation; his taste was always facile, omnivorous, and hit-or-miss, yet he had a big-ness of soul and a richness of temperament that recalled Walt Whitman" (Robert Hughes). "Mine is the need to be where it will always never be the same again. Photography is the most direct communication of non-violent contacts" (Robert Rauschenberg). An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Rauschenberg collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in charcoal pencil by Robert Rauschenberg. It is signed directly on the page, not on a tipped-in page even though it comes from the publisher. The signature beautifully matches the facsimile of his signature on the book's cover and title page. This title is a great art photography book. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online have major flaws because the color white soils very easily. According to dealers who knew him, Rauschenberg basically stopped signing books in the 1990's. Signed copies still available online are vintage, not recent, and very few. A rare signed copy thus. 70 tritone plates. One of the greatest artists of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy.
