        Gorky Park (Original screenplay, actor Lee Marvin's leatherbound presentation copy with associated ephemera)

      Eagle Associates / Orion Pictures, Los Angeles 1983 - Third Draft script (and Final Shooting script) for the 1983 film, "Gorky Park," based on the 1981 novel by Martin Cruz Smith. Actor Lee Marvin's leather-bound presentation copy from director Michael Apted and producer Howard W. Koch, Jr., bound in maroon leather, with Marvin's name in gilt at the bottom right corner of the front board, and with two notable pieces of associated ephemera: (a) a Typed Letter Signed from Apted, Koch, and producer Gene Kirkwood on production stationery for the film, reading "Dear Lee / Please accept this gift as a momento [sic] of the time we all spent together on GORKY PARK," and (b) an attractive greeting card from Apted and Koch, with a note in holograph ink referring to the shooting location for the film, which reads, "Welcome to Moscow! We're glad you're here! / Best / Howard and Michael." On the rear of the envelope is a holograph pencil notation in Marvin's hand reading, "From Howard Koch upon arrival in Finland." And accordingly, the shooting location for the film was Finland, not Moscow, as "Glasnost" had not yet taken effect. In the film, a very faithful rendering of Cruz-Smith's Cold War novel, Marvin plays a Armand Hammer-style American businessman who is playing hell with Soviet police inspector William Hurt in a mystery that is not so much a "whodunit" as a "whydunit." An underrated and appropriately bleak entry in the Cold War cinema genre by the versatile director Apted. Maroon leather with gilt titles and rule, with matching glossy endpapers. Title page present, with credits for screenwriter Potter and novelist Cruz-Smith. 133 leaves, photographically reproduced. Pages and binding about Fine. From the estate of Lee Marvin.

        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. Small bruise to the outer edge of the front board, light rubbing to the extremities. Text in French. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Cathedral [Signed, with a Correction by Carver]

      NY: Knopf. 1983. The uncorrected proof copy of his third collection of stories to be published by a major trade publisher, and a major literary event that confirmed Carver's preeminent place among American short story writers of the day, and signaled a full-fledged resuscitation of the short story in American literature. Signed by the author. In addition, Carver has made a change to the text in the last paragraph of the story "Careful" and initialed and dated the change on May 30, 1983. 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. Softcover. Fine.

        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.

        Eternal Chaotic Inflation" in Modern Physics Letters A, Volume 1, Number 2, May 1986, pp. 81-85

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE FIRST INCLUSION OF ETERNAL INFLATION IN THE CHAOTIC INFLATION THEORY. In this paper, the Russian-American theoretical physicist, Andrei Linde shows that his 'Chaotic Inflation' theory models quantum fluctuations in the rate of inflation, thus demonstrating "that any inflationary theory with an unbounded potential is eternal" (Anderson, Cosmic Compendium, 35). Eternal chaotic inflation "remains the "standard model" of inflation more than 20 years after its conception" (Wenner Collection). Evidence for this model continues and is persuasive. Linde shows "that the evolution of the universe in the chaotic inflation scenario has no end and may have no beginning. According to this scenario, the universe consists of an exponentially large number of different mini-universes inside which all possible metastable vacuum states and all possible types of compactifications are realized" (Linde, "Eternal Chaotic Inflation", 81). "Those regions with a higher rate of inflation expand faster and dominate the universe, despite the natural tendency of inflation to end in other regions. This allows inflation to continue forever, to produce future-eternal inflation" (Anderson). "In 1983, Andrei Linde demonstrated that quantum fluctuations could begin inflation without the highly unlikely condition of a high plateau in the energy potential hill, and he named the result "chaotic inflation." In 1986 [and in this paper], Linde extended his theory to include the notion of eternal inflation. When begun, "eternal chaotic inflation" would continue to grow in random (chaotic) ways through other quantum fluctuations, and thus be eternal-hence the term "eternal chaotic inflation." An outgrowth of the Big Bang theory, 'eternal inflation' is a model of the universe in which "the inflationary phase of the Universe's expansion lasts forever in at least some regions of the Universe. Because these regions expand exponentially rapidly, most of the volume of the Universe at any given time is inflating. All models of eternal inflation produce an infinite multiverse" (Anderson, Cosmic Compendium, 35). CONDITION & DETAILS: Original wraps, complete issue. [9.75 x 6.5 inches]. Ex-libris bearing a stamp, etc. on the front wrap, otherwise clean, bright, and tight. No other library marks within whatsoever. Pristine within. Very good ++.

        Haida Monumental Art - Villages of the Queen Charlotte Islands

      University of British Columbia Press, 1983. 218 pages. From limited edition of 1600 copies. "Concerned entirely with the Haidas of the Queen Charlotte Islands of the last century, the intricacies of the kinship patterns of the great families, and how they saw themselves as part of a fantastic, but in its own terms, logical, cosmos, and most of all how this was all expressed in their remarkable architecture with its perfectly integrated massive carved and painted embellishments, the great totem poles of the Haidas." - from Foreward. "The documentary photographs that survive are among the few remaining records which illustrate the richness and variety of Haida monumental art. Of the more than five hundred carved poles which appear in the plates, only about fifty were removed to museums for safekeeping. The remainder have perished entirely or survive at the village sites as decayed fragments overgrown with the lush vegetation of the islands." - from Preface. Light external wear and soiling to cream-coloured cloth-covered boards. No external markings. Discreet bookplate and bit of writing inside front board. Blindstamp to lower corner of title page. Bit of writing in upper left corner of title page. Remnant of card pocket inside back board. Binding tight. A quality copy of this magnificent work. Former Library Copy
