        The Greenstone Griffins [Complete Manuscript.]

      circa 1983 - MANUSCRIPT in black or blue ink on ruled paper, author's address label at head of text and separate bundle of insertions, corrections throughout and instructions for formatting, pp. [i], [272], [14, insertions], royal 8vo, unbound, protected and enclosed by brown envelope, good condition. The final novel by Mitchell to be published in her lifetime (three other late-period works appeared posthumously), and a last hurrah for this celebrated crime author - Larkin, a keen reader of the genre, lauded her as 'the Great Gladys' - showing no waning of her formidable powers of characterisation and plot. Indeed, the book - with her perennial detective Mrs Bradley at its heart - was praised by some on publication as a return to the style and quality of her earlier writing; Mitchell was - along with other female members of the Detection Club, Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers - one of the most prominent authors of that era, as well as one of the most longeval and prolific. The manuscript, presented in this form to her typist Ruth Sheath, who is also (in this manuscript and the printed version) the dedicatee of the work, is written in a remarkably clear hand (the author was then in her early 80s), with evidence of drafting in the numerous corrections - sometimes at word level, occasionally with whole paragraphs crossed-through and reworked - and the separate clutch of pages to be inserted into the running order during typing. A fascinating insight into the author's process of composition, and a unique version of this highly-ranked late work by an author from the Golden Age of British detective fiction.

        Amazon Parrots.

      London: Rodolphe d'Erlanger/The Basilisk Press, 1983. - LOW, Rosemary - BUTTERWORTH, Elizabeth. Amazon Parrots. London: Rodolphe d'Erlanger/The Basilisk Press, 1983. Folio (17 x 13 6/8 inches). Frontispiece and 27 EXCEPTIONALLY FINE color plates, tipped-in, after paintings by Butterworth, EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED with an original hand-coloured etching by Butterworth, matted and loosely inserted. Original red silk over boards; preserved in a black cloth clamshell box with printed paper label on the spine (box a bit dusty). AS NEW. LIMITED EDITION, number 31 of 100 numbered copies signed by the author and illustrator, accompanied by an original hand-coloured etching by Butterworth, of a total edition of 515. Rosemary Low is one of the world's premier experts on the care and conservation of parrots. Elizabeth Butterworth "is not the first British artist to succeed in capturing on paper the brilliant plumage of Macaws, but with Edward Lear she must be considered one of the best. Certainly she is without rival this century. Her success stems partly from intense powers of observation and party from an encyclopaedic knowledge of her subject. She has bred Macaws, looked after them, fed them and listened to their noisy antics from the first call of the morning to the last shriek at night. She has sketched them in the privacy of her back garden and in their natural state in the rain forests of South America. She has examined the skins of dead birds in natural history museums in London and New York and she could tell you the number of feathers in a tail and the size of a beak to the nearest millimetre. "It is this attention to detail combined with powers of observation that lifts her prints, watercolours and drawings from plain description into the realms of high art. Although she belongs to a distinguished ornithological tradition in which British artists like John Gould and Archibald Thorburn have excelled, she seems closer to a watercolourist like Edward Lear who can be appreciated as an artist on his own level and whose work appeals to collectors who do not know a Macaw from a Toucan. Her realism has surreal or super-real quality, and it is this aspect of her work which caught the eye of critics and curators on both sides of the Atlantic (and in Australia) and which has led to her work being exhibited alongside that by other contemporary artists in prestigious shows in New York, including the survey of contemporary art held at the Museum of Modern Art in 1984" (Elizabeth Butterworth online).

        Five large vinyl-covered photograph albums (each approximately 400 x 330 x 70 mm) containing approximately 2400 colour photographs of buildings in Adelaide (city and suburbs) and nearby country towns

      - Internal evidence suggests they were taken in the mid- to late-1990s by someone with a passion for South Australia's colonial architecture, from workman's cottage to squatter's castle, as well as the more commonly recorded churches and public buildings. Although this extensive gallery of our built environs is not yet twenty years old, it is already looking in parts like a revised edition of Michael Burden's 1983 classic work, 'Lost Adelaide'. The photographs (either 100 x 160 mm or 95 x 150 mm) are in very fine condition, easily removable from the album leaves (hopefully they are 'acid free card with alkaline glue and polypropylene overlays'). The places depicted in each album are noted in order on adhesive labels on the front covers, there are many visual clues to what and where is pictured, and samples taken at random from each volume indicate that a percentage of the prints are captioned on the verso in ink, presumably by the photographer, who unfortunately remains anonymous. In addition, there are also approximately 185 reproductions of early black and white photographs, 35 commercial colour (postcard) photographs and 30 miscellaneous photographs (including a few of people, which may lead to the identity of the photographer).

        In the Spirit of Crazy Horse

      (n.p.): (n.d.). (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. First Edition. Softcover.
