        Green Lantern Vol. 2 167, page 7 "Ring Against Ring!"

      DC Comics Inc, 1983. 16 x 10 inches. Fine. 16 x 10 inches. Comic Synopsis: Having acquired an Oan Power Ring, the irate Galius Zed turns against his comrade Hal Jordan and decides to show him what a true ring-bearer can now accomplish. Hal has little chance against a foe armed with such a superior weapon, but Galius Zed quickly learns that the ring taxes his own life energies, draining him of power and vitality. A withering Zed collapses before Hal Jordan. Hal calls to mind how this whole business got started. It began with Green Lanterns Eddore and Kaylark. Both of them had come into conflict with a trio of space pirates called the Free Lancers. The Free Lancers showed them how their masters, the Guardians of the Universe had crafted a ring that was not inhibited by materials colored yellow. This enraged Eddore and Kaylark, and drove them to renounces the Guardians. Kaylark came into possession of her own Oan ring and returned to her home planet D'xe where she crowned herself Empress. Eddore acquired an Oan Power Ring as well and returned to his native world of Tront. With the power of the ring, he forced hundreds of Trontians to fuse their essences with his own, creating an over-sized being of great power. Hal Jordan came to Tront and fought against the Eddore/Trontian entity. Channeling all of his ring's energy into the being, he overloaded it with power, causing it to collapse to the ground. "Green Lantern Vol 2 167." DC Database. N.p., n.d. Web. 22 Apr. 2015. Page Synopsis: Hal's flashback: Kaylard and Eddore are patrolling the space around OA and they see a pirate ship pulling another ship into it. They soon realize that they are being tricked and the whole thing is a decoy!

        Unpublished Typescript about George Orwell and Nineteen Eighty-Four

      (n.p): (n.p.). [ca. 1983]. In 1983, Robert Stone, National Book Award-winning novelist, was commissioned to write a piece on George Orwell and his dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, as that calendar year approached. In the piece, Stone made an effort to reclaim Orwell from the conservative right wing, which had taken his most famous, anti-totalitarian novels -- Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm -- to be explicit condemnations of the Soviet Union and Communism, and by implication all leftist thought itself. Instead, Stone argues that Orwell's writing in Homage to Catalonia -- not to mention his fighting on the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War -- identifies Orwell as someone with both a socialist sympathy and "a certain affinity with what I believe is best about the United States," a kind of Puritanism that is characterized by "rectitude...conscience and common sense." He goes on to point out that Orwell "was the sort of radical who makes enemies on both sides of epic struggles," owing to his "originality and intelligence, [and] above all his thoroughgoing honesty, [which] always got him in trouble. A writer and man more predictable and dull, less infernally scrupulous would have had a better time of it." Stone adds that Orwell was idealistic but non-ideological -- as Stone was himself -- and deeply committed to the kind of "pragmatism that has characterized American moral thinkers from Jefferson to James to Neibuhr." He concludes that "We may never produce a greater political novel than Nineteen Eighty-Four" and that "it has done its work for us" in shaping our fears and cautions sufficiently for us to have avoided the totalitarian dystopia that was latent in the post-War years of the Cold War. The confluence of writer and subject here was, in many ways, a near-perfect one but the piece seems never to have been published; we can find no record of it; a cover letter from Stone's wife, Janice, indicates this was done for Thames Television, but whether it was produced or used remains unknown to us. One of Stone's novels includes an allusion to a critical moment in Nineteen Eighty-Four: Stone's character explains that one has "to look the gray rat in the eye" -- an allusion to the torture by rats that Winston Smith, in Nineteen Eighty-Four, is faced with, which causes him to "break" and betray himself and his loved ones. 18 pages, ribbon copy typescript, with Janice Stone's cover letter, laid into an agent's folder. Fine. An unknown Robert Stone piece, on a subject that touches close to many of the central and pervasive themes of his own writings. Unique. First Edition. No Binding. Near Fine.

The changed text was incorporated into the published version of the story, so this was apparently a working copy of the proof. Fine in wrappers with a tinge of spine sunning. First Edition.

        William Klein: Photographe Etc. (Signed First Edition)

      Centre Georges Pompidou / Herscher, Paris 1983 - First Edition. INSCRIBED by Klein to Ira Lowe on the half-title page: "to Ira, / a little catalog not made, heureusement in USA (see page 7) / All my best / Bill."Ira Lowe was a Washington, DC based lawyer who specialized in the arts and, over the course of a lengthy career, represented some of the most significant artists and writers of the twentieth century, famously (and successfully) arguing in front of the Supreme Court for the concept of "blockage discount" in valuing artists estates. The reference in the inscription is to a image of a summons in New York State Klein received after being sued for defamation of character by Aperture and a second publisher for a million dollars each after he publicly criticized one of their books. The case was still pending at the time the surrounding interview in this book took place. Near Fine without dust jacket as issued.

L'artiste, dans ses dessins, aime passer en revue les différents aspects de la vie quotidienne sans indulgence mais sans aucune méchanceté. Il aime à croquer ses contemporains, leurs moeurs et leurs travers. L'Ile-Aux-Moines, vue par une mouette, ressemble à un délicat et délicieux chocolat, au large du Golfe du Morbihan. Sur la mer, flotte une drôle d'embarcation composée d'une soucoupe sur laquelle un chocolat-enrobé d'un fin papier doré-repose. Au sommet de cette île insolite un homme, à demi-nu, portant long nez et longue barbe, regarde les mouettes tourner autour de lui.

        A szem és a kéz. Bevezetés a politikába. [The Eye and the Hand. Introduction to Politics.]

      AB Független Kiadó, Budapest 1983 - The silkscreen design on cover is by László Rajk. First edition. Samizdat. Printed in 1200 copies. In publisher's illustrated wrappers. (6), 5-73, (1) p. Samizdat edition of Gáspár Miklós Tamás' political philosophical book on common good. Tamás (b. 1948) emigrated from Romania to Hungary in 1978 for political reasons. He taught at University of Budapest until 1982 when he was dismissed again because of political reasons. He could only publish abroad or underground, as samizdat publication, like this edition, which is his first book issued in Hungary. "A szem és a kéz" was translated into French and published in Genève in 1985 under the title 'L'Oeil et la main". Samizdat editions, mostly political pamphlets, appeared in Hungary in the 1970s in the poor form of carbon copies of typescripts. Later in the 80s the so-called Democratic Opposition in Hungary established semi-underground publishings, like "AB Független" to publish not merely political literature but also literature that was banned by the Communist politics. Somewhat rubbed at spine. One page printed on different paper. Overall in fine condition. In publisher's illustrated wrappers First edition. Samizdat. Printed in 1200 copies.
