Massey was from one of the great theatre families of the 20th century, being the daughter of Raymond Massey and Adrianne Allen.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Athens: Odysseus Elytis, 1982. First edition. Not bound.. Very Good +. An Original Autograph Letter Signed from Odysseus Elytis to Mr. Antonopoulos of the winery Achaia Clauss. Written entirely in the Nobel Prize Winner&#39;s hand over both sides of a piece of his headed card stock (measuring 104 mm X 149 mm and dated 28th July 1982), the letter reads as follows: "My friend Mr. Antonopoulos, I have not forgotten my promise (my wish one would be more correct to say) to visit your facility in Patras. And I&#39;ll first tell you that for exceptional reasons I was obliged almost all spring to avoid all small movements. Now of course comes the time to leave for the summer holidays. But do not worry. I have all confidence when will be the right time to give a notice [of his planned trip to the winery]. Thank you again for your honest feelings. With friendly wishes Elytis." On the verso&#39;s lower left corner Elytis has written "Skoufa 23&#148;, his address in Athens. The letter in Very Good + condition with staple holes and a bit of wrinkling to the lower left corner (not affecting text) and two neat holes (also not affecting the text), presumably made by a prior owner in order to place the letter into a ringed binder. Odysseus Elytis (the pen name of Odysseus Alepoudhiéis) published his first poem at the encouragement of, among others, his friend George Seferis, winner of the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature, was soon thereafter himself praised as an important writer, and ultimately also won the Nobel Prize in Literature (1979) "for his poetry, which, against the background of Greek tradition, depicts with sensuous strength and intellectual clear-sightedness modern man&#39;s struggle for freedom and creativeness". A lover of excellent wines, Elytis was friendly with the Antonopoulos family, operators of the winery Achaia Clauss, one of Greece&#39;s most famous wineries. The letter clearly shows Elytis&#39; intent to visit the great winery as many notable individuals had done before him. Signed letters from Odysseus Elytis, especially those written entirely in his own hand, are quite scarce indeed. A Very Good + Autograph Letter Signed by Nobel Prize Winner Odysseus Elytis. QUITE SCARCE.

      Tokyo: Biyakuya-shobo, 1982. First Edition. Hardcover.. VG+/VG+. 4to, unpaginated (ca 260pp). Black boards in printed dustwrapper. Numerous Black & White plates. Text in English and Japanese. A little rubbing to top and bottom, else near fine in like dustwrap. More images available on request. Kitajima&#39;s lamdmark work, in the vein of Weege or Klein, documents both the chaotic streetlife and underbelly of early 80s New York. His images highlight the stark juxtapositions and quiet desperation of city life and, in the tradition of the flaneur, his eye zooms in on the passing celebrity, occasional decadence, and random displays of outrageous behavior. Absolutely incredible.

      Northampton, Massachusetts: Pennyroyal Press, 1982. No. 189 OF 350 COPIES (300 for sale), SIGNED BY BARRY MOSER. Hardcover. 425 x 279 mm (16 3/4 x 11"). 2 p.l., 145, [6] pp. Preface and notes by James R. Kincaid. Text edited by Selwyn Goodacre. No. 189 OF 350 COPIES (300 for sale), SIGNED BY BARRY MOSER. Original purple half morocco over marbled paper by Gray Parrot (his ticket on rear pastedown), flat spine with gilt titling accented by daisy tools, endpapers with key motif from the illustrations printed in yellow; the volume, along with extra plates (in folders) contained in the original matching folding box of coarsely woven linen with a gilt-titled (lightly sunned) morocco spine. The volume itself WITH 75 WOOD-ENGRAVED ILLUSTRATIONS (one folding), as usual, AND WITH AN ADDITIONAL SUITE OF PLATES, EACH SIGNED BY THE ARTIST, the latter including a printed broadside, signed by Moser, about damage to the woodblocks. Printed in red and black. A hint of discoloration from glue to edges of endpapers, otherwise pristine. This extremely appealing "Alice" is the product of some of the finest book craftsmen in the United States. The letterpress was composed and cast in Boston by Michael and Winifred Bixler; the hand composition and printing were done at Pennyroyal by Arthur Larson and Harold McGrath on handmade paper from Strathmore Paper Company; and the binding came from the Massachusetts workshop of Gray Parrot. Pennyroyal was founded in 1969 by artist Barry Moser, who studied with George Cress, Leonard Baskin, Fred Becker, and Jack Coughlin. The press issued modest books until Moser decided--fresh off his success as the illustrator of the Arion Press "Moby Dick" for Andrew Hoyem--that he would produce more ambitious work. With the encouragement of a cadre of supporters and collaborators, chiefly the outstanding printer Harold McGrath, Moser circulated a questionnaire in the book world asking which among a small group of potential titles would be a choice to print in a special edition. "Alice" won the vote, and the rest is history: the book won the National Book Award for design and illustration in 1983, and a number of impressive large-format projects followed, all meeting with general applause. The illustrations done for our book prompted the poet John Ashbery (writing in "Newsweek") to call Moser&#39;s work "never less than dazzling." Others have been as complimentary: according to Nicholas Basbanes, "Barry Moser is probably the most important book illustrator working in America today," and the "American Book Collector" has said that "Moser has the technical virtuosity to pull more out of a piece of wood than any other contemporary American engraver.

        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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s review makes it clear that Butler&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s appreciative response. . First Edition.

I also wanted them to have a volume that more effectively foreshadowed coming events. "---, KEYHOLE is the newest addition to the cycle having been released in 2012, you are likely never to see another set like this offered, ---apparently RON HOWARD is going to film the Gunslinger as a movie which will be followed by a major television series production, a movie project that will surely result in a new round of interest in this extremely popular book series, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.

        Ubu Roi: Drame en Cinq Actes, by Alfred Jarry

      Paris: Dupont-Visat, 1982. Large quarto. (6), 61, (13)pp. One of 150 copies. An important work of absurdist and surrealist theater based loosely on Shakespeare&#39;s Macbeth. It is illustrated with eight colored etchings and a "pop-up" theater by the Chilean expressionist artist, Roberto Sebastian Matta. The etchings depict Pere Ubu and other characters from the play, done in the style of comic strips and Mayan carvings. Georges Leroux, one of the important twentieth century French bookbinders, chose vermillion calf as a palette to bind Ubu Roi. He sculpted relief figures depicting Father and Mother Ubu on the front and rear covers. Modeled after 1950s style Japanese robots, Leroux incorporated a series of gears, springs, and clock wheels in the chest cavities of both figures. He added multi-colored wires, metal widgets, sheet plastic and marbles to the figures and has Father Ubu&#39;s holographic eyes spinning in his head. The spine is lettered in gray calf onlays; the flyleaves and doublures are red suede. Book label of noted collector Jan Van Der Marck, whose 1997 work The Art of Contemporary Bookbinding features this work. Van Der Marck writes, "Attracted to the incongruous, like the Surrealists, Leroux indulges his love of tinkering by analyzing, dissecting, and reproducing the most salient imagery and features of a given text and illustration," often using irony and "tongue-in-cheek visual rhymes." For Ubu Roi, he drew on Matta&#39;s bold color palette, and the spiral clock spring inside of Father Ubu&#39;s chest plays on the characteristic, distinctive spiral designs used both in Matta&#39;s illustrations and in Jarry&#39;s original depiction of the greedy ruler. Extremely fine, housed in a chemise and slipcase. A complete tour-de-force accompanied by a reproduction of the tin toy, "Chief Robotman," which is battery powered and was the influence for Leroux&#39;s design. (Van Der Marck, The Art of Contemporary Bookbinding, p. 29-31; 73).

      New York City, NY: Xavier Moreau, Inc. , 1982. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Xavier Moreau, Inc. , 1982. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 80 pages. Landmark collection of female nudes. One of the most influential erotic art photography books of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The book is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Helmut Newton and Xavier Moreau: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and photo-tableaux by Helmut Newton. Essay by Karl Lagerfeld, one of the greatest fashion designers of our time. Printed on thick coated stock paper in the United States to the very highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents some of Helmut Newton&#39;s finest and most representative female nude and sex pictures for the very first time in book form. One of the most beautifully produced titles in Helmut Newton&#39;s oeuvre, it is the photographer&#39;s third collection, after "White Women" (1976) and "Sleepless Nights" (1978) . The three books defined his style, cemented his reputation, and remain his most important individual collections. Newton&#39;s now-classic work melds eroticism, compositional brilliance, drama, fetishism, impeccable technique, and voyeurism in a way that makes the viewer feel happily complicit and guiltily uneasy in equal parts. That is his singular achievement as an artist who worked mainly in the compromised commercial realm, and yet became "the most important photographer of the 20th century". That&#39;s according to Benedikt Taschen, who produced SUMO, the biggest photography book ever published thus far (it weighs 70 pounds and comes with its own stand) . Helmut Newton died in a car crash in Hollywood on January 23, 2004. He is buried next to Marlene Dietrich at the Berlin Cemetery, the city&#39;s peripatetic and most successful photographer back home for good. A "must-have" title for Helmut Newton collectors. <b><i> This presentation copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen on the half-title page by the photographer: "For David Ruttenberg, with best regards [followed by best wishes in French] in Tinsel Town, Helmut Newton". The recipient is a renowned photography figure/collector whom Newton unmistakably personally knew. "Tinsel Town" is Newton&#39;s (and many other artists&#39; and writers&#39;) term of endearment for Hollywood. This title is now highly collectible. This is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First American Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Almost all other copies available online have major flaws yet command hundreds of dollars. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. </b></i> 47 plates. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER HELMUT NEWTON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0937950025.
