        The One Whose Eyes Open When You Close Your Eyes

      Roslindale, Massachusetts: Pym-Randall Press. 1982. First. Uncorrected Proof. Folded and gathered photocopied sheets, staple bound into a mockup of the dustwrapper. The pages have been stapled together, the staples exhibiting oxidation, some staining to the jacket, overall a sound, good copy. On the title page, Wright has handwritten three epigraphs, from Einstein, Bliss Carmen, and another we cannot quite make out, but it might be Al Capone. Laid in is a two-page photocopied long galley of the front matter of the book (contents, acknowledgements, etc.), on the back of which Wright has written a letter, well before publication to another poet and close personal friend: "12 February 1982. Jim, I thought you might like to see this: the first page proofs of my book." Wright goes on to speak about their last visit together, and concludes with a drawing that we are at a loss to describe. A possibly unique construction of Wright's first important collection, with a nice association. .

        [Screenplay]: Nothing Lasts Forever

      New York: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer / Broadway Pictures. 1982. Screenplay. Quarto. 70pp. Screwbound in black duplicating service wrappers with gilt lettering. Near fine with some light wear and rubbing to the wrappers. The screenplay for the unreleased cult film by Tom Schiller, an original Saturday Night Live writer responsible for many of its early taped segments, including "Java Junkie" and "Don't Look Back in Anger" (notable for an aged John Belushi as the last surviving SNL alumnus dancing on the graves of fellow cast members). This surreal film follows a young artist returning to New York, now run by the Port Authority, and his subsequent recruitment by an underground tramp community that secretly rules the world. The picture starred Zach Galligan as the artist with appearances by Dan Akroyd, Imogene Coca, Mort Sahl, Eddie Fisher, and Bill Murray in an early film role as a "menacingly-friendly" lunar bus host. According to Schiller, the film was made to get SNL producer Lorne Michaels out of an MGM development deal: "I think they thought it was low budget or something to get off the hook of their contract, but I had total freedom. No one was watching hardly and I got to make a personal film with a studio crew." The film was at first accepted for entry at Cannes but a poor test screening and the film's own quirky style, which interspersed black and white stock footage of New York with new color scenes of the underground, ultimately doomed the film's release. Aside from an appearance on late night TV in Europe, the film was not released theatrically or to home video. The film was rediscovered by audiences after Murray insisted it be included in a retrospective of his work, creating a demand for its release on DVD for which MGM has so far not responded. OCLC locates no copies. .

        Hungarian Memories

      A New York Graphic Society Book / Little, Brown, and Company, Boston 1982 - (1982). 4to. 1st edition. INSCRIBED by Andre Kertesz. Slightly leaning. Faint rubbing to cloth boards. VG/VG. Beginning his photographic career in Budapest at the age of sixteen, Andrà Kertà sz quickly broke away from the romanticized style of his contemporarties to cultivate a distictive journalistic eye that would make him one of the most influential photographers of the early 20th century. Hungarian Memories collects his early photographs, showing the development of his unorthodox style through rural scenes of peasants and gypsies, his own experience as an Austro-Hungarian soldier during the First World War, and the darker realities of a post-war Budapest. This beautiful copy of the first edition was inscribed and dated by Kertà sz on the title page in 1985, the year of his death. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      ADA Edita, Tokyo, Japan 1982 - This is the third and final volume published by Horizon / ADA Edita between 1977 and 1982. This is copy number 485 of 500 copies published by ADA Edita in 1982. The three volumes offer a display of Wright's work of extraordinary magnitude. Each volume, however, stands alone as a significant representation of Wright's work. The fifty plates that are slip-cased in this volume were chosen with an eye towards offering his work across the entirety of its scope. The result is a volume which offers little room for complaint from either scholar or fan. The volume is a 16" by 22" slip-cased folio, weighing roughly 18 pounds. The slipcase is of terra cotta cloth, and the plates are presented on archival papers, each covered with a tissue overlay. While the slipcase displays a stain to the lower spine and strips of fading to both front and rear boards, there is no evidence that the plates have ever been examined, nor are they marred in any manner. Contents fine in a very good slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        PHOTOS IN + OUT CITY LIMITS: NEW YORK CITY ("PHOTOS IN & OUT CITY LIMITS: NEW YORK CITY") - Rare Signed Copy of The First Hardcover Edition/First Printing

      New York City, NY: ULAE Incorporated, 1982 - 1st Printing. Signed. 70 pages. Published in 1982. Collection of photographs on subject. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the Softcover Edition. There is no ISBN. The book is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Robert Rauschenberg: Oversize-volume format. White linen cloth boards with metallic-silver titles beautifully embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Robert Rauschenberg. Essay by Colta Ives. Matching white linen cloth slipcase. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the very highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents the great artist's collection of black-and-white photographs on New York City, 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 now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Many copies 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 flawless collectible copy.

        Typed Letter Signed and Book Review [The Launch of a Pulitzer Prize Winning Author]

      1982 - A typed letter signed by Butler to poet Tom Clark, regarding Clark's review. In 1981, Butler, who would later win the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for his collection A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain, published his first book, The Alleys of Eden. It was reviewed by Clark in the February 11, 1982 Los Angeles Times, with the headline "Vietnamization of a Deserter's Mind." On May 12, Butler wrote to Clark, saying, in part: "I have received twenty major reviews of the book but none of them was more sensitive or insightful than yours. The best literary criticism actually explains an author to himself. That's what your review did. I understand my own book better after reading your review and I want to thank you for that." The letter is signed "Bob Butler." Also included here is Clark's original, 3-page manuscript review, signed by Clark: ".Desertion, Butler seems to say, is an inevitable act, made necessary by the human state. Every small movement is an abandonment of the past, with death looming over everything as the greatest desertion of all." Clark's review makes it clear that Butler's protagonist -- an Army intelligence officer who ends up deserting out of self-disgust over his involvement in the torture and death of a Viet Cong prisoner -- is an analogue for the larger society, which deserted both Vietnam and those who fought there, leaving both the Vietnamese and the veterans as "displaced persons," in both countries. Clark's review is penned on the back of copies from a book about Celine and folded in half; near fine. A photocopy of the published review is included. Butler's letter is folded for mailing; else fine in a near fine envelope. With a copy of Alleys of Eden [NY: Horizon (1981)], which is fine in a very near fine dust jacket with a short edge tear. An insightful review of one of the best novels to come out of the Vietnam war, and the author's appreciative response. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        An Odd Bestiary. Text compiled and annotated by Laurie Block

      [Easthampton, MA]: Cheloniidae Press. 1982. First Edition, one of 200 copies all on Rives lightweight paper, from a total issue of 300 copies, signed by the artist, Alan James Robinson, and hand-numbered by him on the colophon page. Page size: 13-1/2 inches x 9- 3/4 inches; 158pp including 6pp. Introduction by Laurie Block and 13pp. bibliography by Ms. Block. Bound by Grey Parrot: red quarter leather and light tan cloth over boards, tan cloth over boards folder for extra suite of engravings, clamshell box of tan linen over boards with red morocco spine stamped in gold gilt with title, fine. Each letter of the alphabet is exemplified by an animal whose name represents that letter. Each letter has its own page with a small woodengraving of the animal above printed text describing the animal. This is followed by an original full-page woodengraving of the animal with a caption and source printed in red by a page of text. The first letter of each of the 26 text sections is in red, original calligraphy by Betse Curtis in the style of Old English Gothic letters. The colophon features a red alphabet in Old English Gothic letters surrounding the debossed turtle (cheloniidae) with the colophon text printed in Arrighi. The text of the book is in Centaur as well as Arrighi, set in monotype by Mackenzie-Harris, with some hand-setting by Arthur Larson. & The text, compiled by Laurie Block from five centuries of travelers&#39; accounts, is "the story of how men came to view the animate world as a reality with its own unique history, integrity, and order." The earliest bestiaries - full of fantasy and little fact - from the medieval period seem elementary in comparison to those produced by the scholarship of the Renaissance. Humans had renewed their efforts to portray and accurately describe those other living creatures that share their planet. And, their ever-expanding audience was delighted. This desire to see and know the living world continues unabated. Here is a textual survey from publications as early as the 1577 THE HISTORY OF TRAVAILE IN THE WEST AND EAST INDIES... by Richard Eden (for the Elephant&#39;s entry) to the 1839 NARRATIVE OF THE SURVEYING VOYAGES OF HIS MAJESTY&#39;S SHIPS ADVENTURE AND BEAGLE... by Charles Darwin (for the Tortoise&#39;s entry). There are 26 wood engravings by Alan James Robinson for each animal / letter of the alphabet. There are also 26 smaller linecuts which appear above the page of text with the first letter of the animal&#39;s name printed over / with the image. The woodengraving is a full-page image with a sentence, printed in red, below the engraving referring to the animal. This is an altogether welcome addition to the much sought after bestiary. Elegantly and beautifully executed, it is one of Mr. Robinson&#39;s most charming endeavors. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/3156.jpg >Image.</A><br>
