        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.

        Selected Papers 1945-1980 with Commentary. (INSCRIBED BY YANG TO FELLOW NOBEL LAUREATE IN PHYSICS DONALD GLASER.)

      San Francisco: W. H. Freeman, 1983. - First Edition. xvi, 596 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine. Inscribed: 'To Don/with fond memories/of our past/associations [see below]./Frank/March/1988'. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1957 was awarded jointly to Chen Ning Yang and Tsung-Dao (T.D.) Lee 'for their penetrating investigation of the so-called parity laws which has led to important discoveries regarding the elementary particles'. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1960 was awarded to Donald A. Glaser 'for the invention of the bubble chamber'. Yang (1922-) and Glaser (1926-2013) are two of the 11 youngest Nobel Laureates in the sciences, winning at ages 35 and 34, respectively. 'The general intuition is that as you go to less and less biological and simpler and simpler systems, you begin to lose the ability to distinguish time going forward and time backward. And that's an endless debate having to do with evolution and cosmic and so on. But that's the simple explanation of it. So everybody assumed that if you're talking about these little submicroscopic particles, that they don't have any knowledge of time—And the other question is that there are right-handed and left-handed people, there are even right and left handed molecules. Dextrose, for example, is a right-handed sugar, and levulose is the same thing exactly, but it's a mirror image. And so it is with the amino acids. They're all left-handed in our biology, but they don't need to be. If you make them synthetically, you get what's called a racemic mixture—half are right-handed, half are left-handed. But if they come out of a biological process, they're all the same. So the notion was that as you get to simpler and simpler and less biological things, handedness also goes away. So you would think that, unlike a bowling ball, which has handedness because of the finger holes—I guess, maybe not, I'm not sure about that. But anyhow, as you get to billiard balls, then they're symmetrical, and the fantasy was that these little particles are billiard balls. They can't tell if they're getting older or not. They're not right-handed, they're not left-handed and Lee and Yang, a couple of really smart guys at Columbia, said, 'You know, it's all very well that we have that intuition, but nobody's proved it, and it may be that these guys can tell if they're right-handed or left-handed.' To make a long story short, they were right that these particles do know if they're left-handed or right-handed, and there are different kinds. . . . There was a general belief, your well-trodden path, that as you go to simpler and simpler and therefore smaller and smaller physical objects, they will have simpler and simpler personalities. And handedness is one that's gone. Then Lee and Yang said, 'Hey, it ain't necessarily so. We assume that because it sort of seems appealing, but there's no proof of it. Furthermore, it could be that it isn't true.' What do you know, these little particles, the so-called strange particles, have handedness. That's called parity violation, and that's a Nobel Prize. That was a tremendous shock. But they pointed out that here we were following everybody on the same path, and going out in the shrubs, we found an interesting thing. So there are these people who are mavericks. They're not trying to destroy anything' (Donald A. Glaser, Ph.D., The Bubble Chamber, Bioengineering, Business Consulting, and Neurobiology: An Interview Conducted by Eric Vettel in 2003-2004, Program in Bioscience and Biotechnology Studies, Regional Oral History Office, The Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley).

      - Vorliegend Sammlung von 30 Briefen aus dem Nachlaß des Antiquars Arnim Borski, Briefe, die in den ersten Wochen des Jahres 1983 von deutschen Schriftstellern im Ausland an ihn geschrieben wurden, um auf sein privates Rundschreiben zu antworten: "Borski fragte (1.) nach den Hoffnungen, die geholfen haben, die Bedrohungen und Schwierigkeiten des Exils durchzustehen, (2.) welche Erinnerungen an die Heimat verliert man zuerst und welche überhaupt nicht, (3.) was können Sie als Lebenserfahrung des Exils heutigen jungen Leuten mitteilen, (4.) welche Ihrer literarischen Arbeiten würden Sie empfehlen, um Ihr Schicksal besser zu verstehen? 48 gleichlautende Briefe schickte er an die ihm zugefallenen Adressen von Exilschriftstellern, deren einzige Gemeinsamkeit in ihrer deutschen Heimatsprache lag (neben ihrer Mitgliedschaft im Exil-P.E.N.), 30 Antworten trafen in den nächsten Wochen bei ihm ein. Die Antworten sind so unterschiedlich wie die Schicksale, vor deren Hintergrund sie geschrieben worden sind, Borski zitiert in seinem Nachwort beispielhaft die Antwort von Friedrich Rosenfeld (Feld): 'Emigration ist ein sehr persönliches Problem. Jeden trifft es auf andere Weise. Manche überwinden es, anderen verdunkelt es ihr weiteres Dasein. Und darüber viel reden, ist nicht jedermanns Sache' [.]" (Wilbert Ubbens, Rezension zu unserem Katalog "Briefe aus dem Exil. 30 Antworten auf Fragen von Arnim Borski".

      Aperture, New York 1983 - First edition (English), first printing. Soft cover. Photographically illustrated, laminated stiff wrappers; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs by Gilles Peress. Telexed messages by Gilles Peress and Magnum staff. Essay by Gholam-Hossein Sa'edi. Includes a timeline of events, captions to the photographs, and biographies on the contributors.

[Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).]. Near Fine (creases to lower corners of cover, 1/8-inch abrasion to left edge of rear cover and light wear to the extremities; spine uncracked and binding tight). From Parr and Badger: "[Telex: Iran] is one of the key works in what might be termed a postmodern approach to photojournalism, where the photographer seems to critique and comment on his or her purpose whilst trying to fulfill it. Telex: Iran is exemplary in this regard. The book was shot over a five-week period from December 1979 to January 1980, during the Iran 'hostage crisis,' when Islamic fundamentalists, encouraged by the fledgling revolutionary government of the Ayatollah Khomeini, seized the United States Embassy in Tehran and held 52 Americans hostage, in protest at American refusal to return the ousted Shah for trial and certain execution. Peress traveled around Iran, trying to understand both the basis for the revolution and the mindset of a people who were demonized in the US media. His pictures portray not only his attempt to comprehend what was going on, but also the attempts of many of the Iranians he was photographing . Peress does not add traditional, explanatory captions, but instead includes excerpts from the telexes exchanged between himself and the Magnum offices in Paris and New York. These communications, which today would be cellphone text messages or e-mails, give cryptic insights into Peress's understanding of how the story was developing, as well as the practical difficulties facing any photojournalist in a confused and volatile political situation."
