        2010: Odyssey Two

      Phantasia Press, Huntington Woods, Michigan 1982 - First edition. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper in original slipcase (see below for slipcase condition). One of 650 numbered copies Signed by the author, this copy unnumbered. Additionally Inscribed by Arthur C. Clarke to his protege, one-time secretary, and longtime friend Ian Macauley; "For Ian, to cheer you up on your 50th birthday (lucky guy!) and to prove that I've not forgotten Atlanta in '52 -Affectionately, Arthur. 4 Ap '89." Clarke sent the book to Macauley from Sri Lanka, using the novel method of pasting wrapping paper over the slipcase and addressing it to Macauley, with predictable results -- the addressed paper is still attached and one end of the slipcase has been cut away, apparently when the package was opened. Macauley was the dedicatee of Clarke's first published hardcover novel, *Islands in the Sky* (1952), and was an award-winning *New York Times* journalist. He also edited Clarke's book of collected essays, *Greetings, Carbon-Based Bipeds!* (2000). A nice association copy of this novel. Apparently the reference to 1952 in the inscription refers to Clarke's 1952 visit to Macauley in Atlanta, where he wrote the last chapter of *Childhood's End*, reportedly after discussions with Macauley. Basis for the 1984 film, written and directed by Peter Hyams, and featuring Roy Scheider, John Lithgow, Helen Mirren, Bob Balaban, and Keir Dullea (reprising his role from Stanley Kubrick's classic *2001: A Space Odyssey*).

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Part 3, The Coming of War 1936 - 1939

      William Heinemann Ltd., London 1982 - The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by Randolph Churchill but completed by Martin Gilbert, is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life, comprising eight mammoth main text volumes and - so far - seventeen accompanying document or "Companion" volumes. The eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. Publication of the Companion volumes continues today. This is the rarest, most keenly sought, and most prohibitive to acquire of the Official Biography Companion volumes. There was just a single printing in England and the Volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than other Companion volumes - meaning that many Official Biography sets will forever do without. The third is the rarest of the three Volume V Companions. Here is the British first edition, only printing, a superlative, truly fine example in a fine dust jacket that appears unread. This is as good as they come. The red cloth binding is immaculate - clean and tight retaining a nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and virtually no wear. The contents are pristine. There is no sign of the looseness or gutter breaks that so often occur with this massive volume. No spotting. No previous ownership marks. The red topstain retains deep, entirely unfaded color. The fore and bottom edges are as clean and bright as the contents. The dust jacket is crisp, bright, and complete. The front flap price remains intact. We note absolutely no losses or tears. We detect no sunning whatsoever to the spine lettering. Searching for flaws, we note only a trivial hint of wrinkling to a tiny portion of the top edge of the rear face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Please note that this large, heavy book may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A302e3. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [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. .

Only issues 1-25 were published with this particular photograph. All in near fine condition. "Minor White was a mystic, and Mirrors / Messages / Manifestations is a forthrightly mystical work. These qualities in themselves signify courage because there were few - even among Minor's closest associates and friends - willing to deal seriously with such intangibles. Minor's mysticism, however, was neither occult nor sentimental. It was a search for intelligence that goes beyond the ordinary dimensions of daily life. In an unpublished manuscript written in 1969, the year this book was first issued, Minor wrote: Consciousness in photography comes out of an awakening to the interlocking interconnectedness of everything, from atoms to suns, space to time, light to dark, event to situation, man to Man, and Man to God."

        WAR HORSE

      London: Kaye and Ward 1982 - First edition, first printing. Original illustrated boards, without dustwrapper as issued. A superb fine clean bright and tight copy with one tiny bump to the top edge. Scarce. Despite critical acclaim, and being runner-up for the 1982 Whitbread Award, the book sold poorly on first publication. It seemed destined to remain in relative obscurity until 2007, when it was adapted for the National Theatre stage, winning 2 Olivier Awards. In March 2009 the show transferred to the West End before opening on Broadway in 2011 and winning five Tony Awards. DreamWorks Studios acquired the film rights in 2009, with the Steven Spielberg directed film released in 2011. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request.

        Die Cosmographia des Claudius Ptolemaeus 1472/3

      Besler and Johnson,, Zurich & New York 1982 - Superb facsimile of the Vatican's Ptolemy Cosmographia of 1472 Folio atlas (620 by 460mm), 135pp., [2] leaves, full colour facsimile reproduction of the Vatican Codex Urb. Lat. 277., full blind tooled calf with gilt centrepiece, brass centre and corner pieces, leather clasps. Superb facsimile of Ptolemy's Cosmographia, published by the Vatican.The original manuscript was commissioned by the Duke of Urbino in 1472/3, and came into the Vatican Library in 1657. In 1983 the Vatican Library published 550 facsimiles; 500 of which were meant for sale and fifty - each marked with a Roman numeral I-L - to be kept by the Library, for use as state gifts. The present copy is marked with the Roman numerals 'VII'. One such example was presented by Pope Benedict XVI to Christian Wulff, the President of Germany, during his Apostolic visit to Germany, on the 22nd September 2011. The press release that accompanied the gift gives a general history of the work:"This facsimile reproduces the manuscript containing the Latin translation of the Greek text (version "A") of the Geographia by Claudius Ptolemy (2nd century AD), performed by Iacopo Angeli da Scarperia (around 1360-1410). The title Cosmographia, which seemed the most appropriate to the author, was based on choices made by other Latin authors for similar works (the reasons why are explained in folio 2v).Together with other, similar specimens this magnificent manuscript documents the rediscovery and positive reappraisal during the Renaissance of Ptolemy's cartographic oeuvre, as a synthesis of Hellenistic culture and a recognised milestone in the representation of the earth, unique among its kind in terms of the wealth of theoretical and practical information it provides on the topic. The codex was transcribed in Florence in an elegant, humanist script by Hugues Commineau (Ugo Comminelli) de Mézières (see colophon folio 70r; in abridged form folio 122r), the same copyist of the splendid Bible of Urbino (Urb. Lat. 1-2). Pietro del Massaio and Francesco Rosselli were also involved in its production: both were well known as illuminators thanks to their workshops, which were specialised in the manufacture of maps and geographical works. The embellishment is valuable; this begins with the title page (folio 1v), which contains a sumptuously enframed reference to the title and the translator in gold on a blue background; the incipit of the translator's foreword (folio 2r) is decorated along the edges with gold and coloured borders comprised of flowers, putti with candelabras (also a recurrent motif in the initials of the text) and medallions, plus an illumination showing the translator presenting the work to Pope Alexander V (wrongly identified as Alexander III). The incipit of each book includes delightful initials painted in miniature; colourful frames embellish the introductory texts to the maps that follow.The text is divided into eight books. Book I (folios 3r-13r) explains the theoretical concept of 'geographia' and methods for designing maps; books II-VII (folios 13r-69r) contain information on the names of towns and cities, countries, regions and peoples of the world together with their coordinates; book VIII (folios 69r-70r) details the number of maps and provinces for each continent, and includes short descriptions and data on the main cities etc. These books are followed by the 27 maps traditionally ascribed to Ptolemy: the entire world as it was then known (folios 72v-73r), then 10 maps of Europe (folios 74v-92r; Germany is on folio 80r), 4 maps of Africa (92v-100r), 12 of Asia (100v-121r). Then come seven non-traditional maps or 'novae' (folios 122v-129r), and 10 city- and townscapes (folios 129v-135r). The sequence is determined by a practical cartographic criterion. The more than 8,000 locations named are entered in a grid of longitudes and latitudes, which Ptolemy is the first to use in the modern sense.The codex belonged to the library of Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino (14
