        The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger [ Lettered State ]

      Donald M. Grant 1982 - West Kingston, RI: Donald M. Grant Publisher (1982). The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger by Stephen King. Hard cover. pp. 224. First Edition. Rarest State Of The First Dark Tower Book - Letter "AC". Signed By Stephen King And Michael Whelan. Additionally Inscribed By Steve To Family Friend. First Edition stated on copyright page. Original decorated tan cloth with brown gilt design. Un-clipped dust jacket showing Trade: $20 Limited: $60 prices. Illustrated end-papers and five full page color illustrations by Michael Whelan. Book condition: Fine. Dust jacket condition: Near-Fine with one 2mm white spot on base of rear cover. The Lettered State of The Gunslinger is the rarest of The Dark Tower books. One of 52 copies Lettered A-Z and AA - AZ. These were never offered for sale, rather they were meant for personal distribution to friends and family of Steve. The five stories that constitute the novel were originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction: 1. The Gunslinger (October 1978). 2. The Way Station (April 1980). 3. The Oracle and the Mountains (February 1981). 4. The Slow Mutants (July 1981). 5. The Gunslinger and the Dark Man (November 1981). It took Steve twelve and a half years to finish the novel. The finished product was first published by Donald M. Grant, Publishers as a limited edition in 1982 and a First Edition of 10,000 copies, which was very small for a King novel. The following year, after Pet Sematary noted The Dark Tower (1982) among King's previous works, many fans called the offices of King, Grant and Doubleday wanting more information on the already out of print book. That led to another run of 10,000 copies of the Second Edition. In 1988, Plume released it in trade paperback form, and since then fans have been able to read this great story in many formats. Collector's Grade Copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        John Brack nudes. Fifteen original lithographs

      Text by Margaret Plant. Introduction by Gordon Thomson. Melbourne: Lyre Bird Press, 1982. Large folio (465 x 340mm), in a modern binding of full black kangaroo decorated with Brack motif, housed in a black buckram clamshell box with gilt decoration and lettering on front panel. Illustrated with fifteen original large lithographs by Brack, each drawn on a single zinc lithographic plate, each unsigned and untitled as issued. Thirteen lithographs measure 430 x 300mm (approximate), two of the plates are double page images of double nudes, and measure 440 x 640mm (approximate). Limited to 200 copies plus 50 hors d'commerce, but in reality only a quarter of this edition was produced. This example is unsigned and unnumbered. This stunning book, the brainchild of master private press publisher Tate Adams, is the only deluxe art book created by John Brack. Commenced in September 1981 and published in December 1982, the book was launched with a series of original conte drawings, on which the lithographs were based, at Realities Galleries, Melbourne. As such a high cost of production was involved in the binding of the book, only fifteen copies were originally bound for exhibition and sale at the show. Subsequent to this a further approximately thirty-five copies were bound, making a total finished edition of about fifty copies, far fewer than the anticipated 200. The fifty hors d'commerce series were issued unbound as lithographs for framing, and these were individually signed by the artist. This commercial aspect to the publication in part defeated John Brack's creative vision in designing the graphics - the images are composed with a specific perspective intended to be experienced as the book is angled flat before the viewer, which is lost once the images are framed. This particular copy is one of 5 copies bound in black kangaroo by Douglas Stewart Fine Books, bound from the original sheets circa 2008. Rare. Collections: National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, National Library of Australia, State Library of Victoria, State Library of Queensland, State Library of New South Wales, University of Melbourne, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Monash University.

        THE WHITTINGTON PRESS A BIBLIOGRAPHY 1971-1981 With an Introduction and Notes By John Randle

      Risbury, Herefordshire: The Whittington Press, July, 1982. NUMBERED LIMITED EDITION, one of only 95 copies bound in vellum and marbled boards and with 25 others, the only issue to include an extensive set of tipped-in specimen pages. Including the normal copies, there was a printing of only 320 copies in total. Handsomely printed on Zerkall Halbmatt mould-made papers, illustrated with engravings printed from woodblocks and halftones, the plates printed by Adrian Lack at Senecio, and this copy with the set of over 50 specimen pages, mostly from the original printings, and which were not included in the 200 buckram bound copies. 4to, in the original binding by Paul Collet and designed by Richard Kennedy of quarter vellum over marbled boards, the paper marbled at Whittington by Colen Gryspeerdt, the spine panel trimmed and lettered in gilt, in the original slipcase of brown paper-covered boards with woodcut vignette pastedown. 83, [1], specimen leaves pp. An especially fine and beautiful copy, essentially pristine and as mint. FIRST EDITION AND A VERY BEAUTIFUL AND SCARCE BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THIS MODERN FINE PRESS. The Whittington Press has, since 1971, been printing books by letterpress, from type ('as God intended', as the Revd. Bernard Roberts once remarked), in the Gloucestershire village of Whittington. It was started by John and Rosalind Randle partly as the result of an early enthusiasm for Caslon type, Albion presses and hand-made papers, and partly the wish to escape from London publishing jobs at the weekend. Its first book, Richard Kennedy's 'A Boy at the Hogarth Press' (1972), which took a year of weekends and holidays to print in an edition of 525 copies on an 1848 Columbian hand-press, proved to be that rare event in the private press world, a best seller, and encouraged the founders to make the Press a full-time activity in 1974. From 1972 to 1991 the Press? home was at Manor Farm, Andoversford, a mile away from the presses at Whittington. Since 1972 they have printed, and nearly always published, some 250 books, including the renowned annual review for printers and bibliophiles, Matrix (?by far the finest periodical of the book arts of the twentieth century, surpassing even the seven-volume Fleuron issued in the 1920s?), which is now in its thirty-fifth year. The Press has received numerous awards for its printing and publishing, including THE AMERICAN PRINTING HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION?S AWARD for Matrix, the first time APHA?S INSTITUTIONAL AWARD has gone to a private press. The Press has a varied list, which can be best described as belles lettres, and includes books with and about wood-engravings, bibliographies of other presses, type specimens, diaries, pochoir (stencil) illustration, and much else besides. The one factor they all have in common is illustration, nearly always printed from the original block, plate or stencil (?things, not pictures of things?, as Eric Gill once said).

Without DJ, as issued. 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.

        The BFG - SIGNED and INSCRIBED by the author

      Cape, 1982. Hardcover. Fine. A first edition, first printing published by Cape in 1982. A fine book with a trace of spotting to the top edge. No inscriptions. Some light tanning to the page edges. In a fine unclipped wrapper lightly faded to the spine. SIGNED 'Love Roald Dahl' in his customary thick marker to the front endpaper. Comes with a letter of provenance from the previous owner who met Dahl at a library event in Welwyn Garden City in 1982. The owner claims never reading this copy and it shows. A lovely example of a scarce book made more popular by the recent Mark Rylance film.
