A fine copy in the jacket, lightly toned and with a small nick to head of spine panel. First edition, first impression. With the signed presentation inscription to the actress Anna Massey, "To Anna with love + thanks, Harold". Massey played the part of Pauline (alongside Judi Dench) in the debut of Pinter's "A Kind of Alaska", which is the third in the cycle of three plays included in this volume. Massey was from one of the great theatre families of the 20th century, being the daughter of Raymond Massey and Adrianne Allen. Though she never reached truly stellar fame, Anna Massey was a highly respected actress and very much a prominent feature of the thespian landscape of the late 20th century. In 2004 she was awarded a CBE for her services to drama. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        American Guitars An Illustrated History

      HARPER & ROW, NY 1982 - Signed by author, Foreword by Les Paul, Presentation inscription to B.B. King on front end page to "B. B. We're fellow professionals in a way, working together on Guitar Play magazine. But I'll always be an aspiring guitarist, and you'll always be the King of the Blues, and your kind comments on the back of the book are a tremendous honor. Thank you for your efforts on my behalf, and for years of inspiration, Sincerely, Tom", B. B. King , Eric Clap[ton, Chet Atkins, Howard Roberts and John Entweistle all have a quote on the back of the dustjacket B.B. King (guitar, vocals; born September 16, 1925) Riley B.B. King has been called the King of the Blues and Ambassador of the Blues, and indeed he’s reigned across the decades as the genre’s most recognizable and influential artist. His half-century of success owes much to his hard work as a touring musician who consistently logged between 200 and 300 shows a year. Through it all he’s remained faithful to the blues while keeping abreast of contemporary trends and deftly incorporating other favored forms - jazz and pop, for instance - into his musical overview. Much like such colleagues and contemporaries as Buddy Guy and John Lee Hooker, B.B. King managed to change with the changing times while adhering to his blues roots. Book Condition: Very good, general shelf wear, good binding, clean body and unmarked text. Dust Jacket Condition: Good, general edge wear, top edge very lightly curling, lightly creased at edges, rubbed cover, NOT price clipped.

        El Salvador: El Pueblo Vencera (The People's Victory). A Film by The Film Institute of Revolucionary [sic] El Salvador F.M.L.N.

      S.i. [1982], N.p. - Dramatic composition depicting a host of F.M.L.N. guerrillas marching forth from Monte Alzaco, the spiritual home of Salvadoran resistance. Undated and unattributed, but presumably dating from around the time of the premiere of El Pueblo Vencera, the documentary which did a great deal to promote the rebel cause on American college campuses. Possibly a university art student's work (though if so a quite accomplished one); in any case, given the uniform dimensions in inches we assume the poster was produced in the U.S. and not Latin America (despite the Spanish misspelling of "revolutionary." Original silkscreened poster in three colors; 30" x 20" (ca 77cm x 56cm). Printed in red, blue and black inks on heavy art paper. Considerable bleed-through of colors to verso; impression slightly uneven along upper margin; a few small spots of soil -- still a bright, clean example, Near Fine. Unbacked.

        Ham On Rye (Advance Review Copy, Signed)

      Santa Barbara, CA: Black Sparrow Press, 1982. First edition. Paperback. Very good or better in wraps; adhesive bleed-through to the publication notice on front; 'Advance Copy" stamp to front free endpaper. Signed by Bukowski on the title page. As indicated on the colophon, this copy from the trade edition published in wraps. An attractive example in an exceedingly scarce format; Black Sparrow as a rule was parsimonious in their distribution of review and advance copies, and if there were more than a handful of this particular title in this particular form, it would be a surprise. Certainly the scarcest example in the hierarchy of signed copies; it's not unreasonable to assume while there are 350 signed and numbered copies, plus the 136 lettered and signed, there may be a few signed review copies in the marketplace, but certainly not more than a handful.

        The Virgin Method Letter (Vol 1, No.1 and Vol. 1, No. 2) 1982

      Kassandra (P.Q. Wall), Denver, CO, U.S.A. 1982 - No Binding, stapled loose pages, ORIGINAL newsletters by P.Q. Wall from 1982. Vol. 1, No. 1 is 8 pages, Vol. 1. No. 2 is 7 pages. Book Condition: Very Good, these are ORIGINAL newsletters published by P.Q. Wall in Jan. 8, 1982 and Jan. 18, 1982. The production quality from Wall is fair, it's apparent that Wall did some sloppy production of these pieces, but his content is completely original. The scope of P.Q. Wall's cycle theories are vast and complex. His cycle theories applied to the markets entail a great deal of cycles overlapping at different time periods. These letters were originally sent by Wall to Dr. Jerome Baumring (owner of the Investment Centre Bookstore in Los Angeles). These were part of Baumrings Collection of rare Wall titles and articles. Here is an excerpt from the Introduction: Our dream is to write the best market letter in the world. To. do this we would have to have advanced insight into economic cycle-rhythms for long range overview, a VIRGIN cycle theory. We would also have to have an original or VIRGIN way of measuring the current "cutting edge." of the market daily. We need both these things, and they will constitute the two main portions of each letter. We will begin each letter with random comments under the reading, "High P.Q. Technician," explained below. One last word on "cutting edge." This involves identifying the "fateful eighty virgins," eight culled (not inclusive or even representative) group averages that constitute the segments of the current cutting edge. For example, three years ago gambling stocks would have been one such segment. We use four criteria, 1. V = Volatility, 2. IR = Intermediate-Term Responsive, 3. GI = Group Inherent, 4. N = Norm Self-Orbiting (orbiting its own independent center of gravity.) -- end. EXTREMELY SCARCE CONTENT, Highly Collectible. [Attributes: First Edition]

Geoffrey J. Roper, historian, scholar, past head of the Islamic Bibliography Unit at Cambridge University Library, 1982-2003, and Editor of Index Islamicus and of the World Survey of Islamic Manuscripts, notes: "I have not been able to find any bibliographical record of this booklet, but the type-face is certainly that of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) press in Beirut. These types were supplied to other presses in the area at various times, but in view of the content of this item, it seems most likely to have been printed by the ABCFM." [Attributes: Soft Cover]
