        Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom [Indiana Jones and the Temple of Death] (Original screenplay for the 1984 film)

      Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1983. Revised script for the 1983 film. Working screenplay, with red rubber stamp watermark INDY 2 MAR22 00059 on the recto of each leaf. Mechanically reproduced, raised text, with one revision in original typescript. The only working copy of this script we have ever handled. A working script produced about one month prior to the commencement of shooting, which began on April 18, 1983. From the collection of cinematographer Carlos Gil. The second film in the renowned Indiana Jones series (which we insist on continuing to refer to as a trilogy), a dark prequel to the first installment, "Raiders of the Lost Ark." Steven Spielberg spared no effort in making a breathlessly entertaining adventure film in the old style, utilizing a minimum of special effects. Pauline Kael called the film, "one of the most sheerly pleasurable films ever made," and Roger Ebert deemed it, "not so much a sequel as an equal. It's quite an experience." Black spring binder. Title page present, marked copy No. 00059, dated 3/1/83, noted as Revised, with credits for story writer Lucas, screenwriters Huyck and Katz, and director Spielberg. 133 leaves, mechanically reproduced on yellow stock, with yellow revision pages throughout, dated 3/1/83 and 3/10/83. Pages Near Fine, spring binder Near Fine. In a custom red quarter-leather clamshell box.

        In the Spirit of Crazy Horse

      (n.d.), (n.p.) 1983 - A samizdat edition of his controversial and suppressed book about the confrontation between American Indian activists and the FBI in the early Seventies at Pine Ridge Reservation near Wounded Knee that left two federal agents and one Indian dead, and resulted in AIM activist Leonard Peltier being imprisoned for life, convicted of the agents' murder in a case that Matthiessen describes as rife with government malfeasance. Matthiessen, his publisher, and even some bookstores who had stocked the book were the targets of lawsuits brought by two government officials who claimed they were slandered by the hard-hitting book, which made no bones about its advocacy of the Indians' case. Until a landmark Supreme Court decision upholding Matthiessen's (and Viking's) First Amendment rights, the book was shelved with remaining copies of it being pulped; paperback publication, as well as foreign publication, were blocked for nearly a decade. A significant volume, both for the incendiary nature of its content, as well as the First Amendment battle surrounding its publication and suppression. Pirated during the nine years that the book was unavailable through normal channels. Plain white printed wrappers, with just the title and author indicated; comb-bound in an acetate cover. This copy is from the library of Peter Matthiessen. A significant edition of an important book in the history of First Amendment cases. Fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The CIVIL warS: A Tree Is Best Measured When It Is Down | De Rotterdam Schouwburg (Original poster for the premiere of the Rotterdam movement of the 1984 opera)

      Rotterdam: Rotterdamse Schouwburg, 1983. Original poster for the 1984 opera directed by Robert Wilson with music by Philip Glass, David Byrne, Gavin Bryars, and others, as performed in Rotterdam on September 11, 1983. "The CIVIL warS" was originally conceived as six movements, created in six different countries, that once premiered in their countries of origin would then be joined together into a daylong opera for the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. However, after adequate funding never surfaced for the project, the piece remained incomplete and is now known only for its five completed sections. It has never been performed whole. This poster is for the Rotterdam movement, which was intended to mimic the look of Dutch landscapes and which included appearances by characters like Mata Hari, Queen Wilhelmina, and William the Silent. 23 x 16.25 inches, rolled. About Fine condition.
