        Jean Dubuffet. Photographie Originale.

      Par l'auteur 1983 - - Par l'auteur, S.l. 1983, 42x42cm sur papier Ilford 60x50cm, 1 planche photographique. - Grand portrait photographique original en noir et blanc de Jean Dubuffet réalisé par Marc Trivier à Paris en 1983. Portrait d'artiste, d'anonyme, de fou, d'abattoir ou d'arbre : Marc Trivier a photographié chaque sujet avec la même intensité interrogative. Toutes réalisées dans le même format carré, élémentaire et clos, sans retouche ni recadrage, les photographies semblent moins mettre en scène un sujet - célèbre ou inconnu, élu ou déchu, vivant ou mort - qu'interroger une présence. «Ce qui m'intéressait, ce n'était pas de photographier simplement un corps ou un visage, mais cette situation particulière qui est quelqu'un en train de faire la photo de quelqu'un d'autre.» Trivier dévêt l'oeuvre de ses effets et dévoile l'énigmatique nudité du corps photographique. "Dans sa cosmogonie, chaque chose, chaque être, végétal, animal ou humain, mérite le même respect. Car tous sont confrontés à la même loi d'airain : la solitude. " (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, le 05/03/2011 à l'occasion de la rétrospective Marc Trivier à la Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Tirage argentique non signé, comme la plupart des oeuvres de Trivier. Epreuve unique tirée par l'artiste. Une déchirure en tête et en pied, traces de pliure marginale, une trace de pliure angulaire, toutes sans atteinte à la photographie. Rarissime photographie en très grand format d'un des photographes contemporains les plus importants. [Attributes: First Edition]

Billy Phelan (Viking Press, 1978): Publisher's grey cloth, the spine stamped silver; in a pictorial dust jacket priced $9.95. Fine and unread, the binding square and very tight; in a better than Near Fine jacket, the spine tips lightly rubbed, the back panel with several creases and short closed tears.

A Fine, unread copy, marred only by faint dust-spotting to the fore- and top edges; in a Fine, bright, unfaded jacket. Albany is the crucible where Kennedy's Irish immigrants&#151;machine politicians and lowlifes, oucasts and swells, many members of the author's fictional Phelan family&#151;have come to forge their version of the American dream. "Inevitable comparisons to James Joyce and his delineations of his native Dublin abound in discussions of Kennedy&#146;s work, and the American author&#146;s selective use of stream of consciousness and stylistic experimentation enhance the comparisons." (Literary Encyclopedia) The Albany Cycle's crowning achievement, following Legs and Billy Phelan's Greatest Game, is Ironweed, awarded both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction and generally acknowledged as Kennedy&#146;s masterpiece. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        ARCHIVE OF LETTERS: 21 pages

      1983 - 1990 1983 - Superb archive of seven letters from the author of ANGELA'S ASHES to R'Lene Dahlberg, fellow teacher at Stuyvesant High School, friend, wife of author Edward Dahlberg, and muse. Mostly chatty correspondence, all but two pages handwritten by McCourt, complete with hand-addressed envelopes and mostly written in New York City. In one letter McCourt describes being at Rockaway Beach with his daughter Maggie who is searching for her lost hamster with a friend: "The little bugger won't come out. I've tempted him with everything from carrots to watercress. I've made assorted seductive noises. I've exposed mineself. I've even promised him a night out with a hamsteress. To no avail. Maggie & Clare are less interested in hamsters than in boys. It's all boys now. Boys, boys, boys. I'll break her face. She checks herself out in the mirror by the hour. I told her cut it out. She [sic] wearing out the mirror. Also, I'm getting an education in teeny bop mating habits and teeny bop music. Pubescence is a pain in the arse." In the same letter he describes an encounter with "a maiden" who "had her way with me on the pitcher's mound in the local baseball field. She was a Catholic, too, and told me I was much better than a state of grace. You could always regain your state of grace, she said, but the way I was drinking she decided to get me while she could before I became a shadow of my former self. Does this make sense to you? I'll clean it all up in the novel I'm writing called IN THE FLESH." McCourt also discusses the IRA, his divorce from Alberta, his tour with his brother Malachi and the rave reviews they were getting, how much he likes Chicago, teaching, etc. In one letter he gives a list of saints. All letters are SIGNED "Frank," with one SIGNED "Frank, son of Angela." Also included is a handwritten note by R'Lene Dahlberg describing her relationship to McCourt which, by all accounts, seems to have cooled dramatically upon the publication of the Pulitzer Prize winning ANGELA'S ASHES. McCourt admired Edward Dahlberg's superb autobiography BECAUSE I WAS FLESH and modeled his own ANGELA'S ASHES after it, both writers casting their mothers as the central characters. Both emerged from impoverished childhoods to achieve success, though Dahlberg's was critical rather than financial. Dahlberg was dead when ANGELA'S ASHES was published in 1996, but his former wife, R'lene Dahlberg, was alive. She was the first person to encourage McCourt to publish his work and stated in a private note (included here) that she "got him his first publication- called 'If you live in a lane.'" Her importance to McCourt was publicly acknowledged by him in his book where she is listed first on the Acknowledgments page:"This is a small hymn to an exaltation of women.R'lene Dahlberg fanned the embers."McCourt told friends a funny tale of walking with Edward Dahlberg down Second Avenue. Dahlberg was "pontificating like Jehova" and as they approached the Jewish funeral home where his "sainted" mother had been laid out, Dahlberg stepped in dog excrement."How can letters flourish in the commonwealth," Dahlberg immediately raved, "when pederasts are permitted to parade their poodles to dung on the pavement!"He removed his soiled shoe and threw it in the city garbage can, continuing home with one shoe on and one shoe gone.

        Time Out of Mind and Strappado Square

      Wolfhound Press, Dublin, Ireland 1983 - A unread copy of the true first print and first edition of a book which contains two early novellas by Sebastian Barry. There is some very slight toning to the text block due to the cheap paper used in production of this title. Some very slight softening to the lower spine and to one bottom tip. The jacket is as new, bright and unclipped. Impossibly scarce, as the book had to be withdrawn by its publishers, Wolfhound Press, following the threat of a libel action. Apparently all but a handful of copies were pulped.SIGNED by Sebastian Barry to the title page [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Don Quixote

      1983 - Original unpublished pen and ink drawing of Don Quixote, measuring 15&#148; x 23,&#148; with Moser&#146;s pencil caption: &#147;Feodor Chaliapin as Don Quichotte &#150; Barry Moser 1983.&#148; The frontal-view portrait depicts Don Quixote with his head upturned, hair on end, mustache and goatee bristling, neck muscles straining, and eyes bulging with adventure. Cervantes&#146;s story fascinated Russian bass Chaliapin, who starred in Jules Massenet&#146;s memorable opera "Don Quichotte," which premiered in 1910, as well as director G. W. Pabst&#146;s film "Adventures of Don Quixote," which was released in French, German, and English sound versions in 1933. Cervantes&#146;s story also long fascinated Moser, who, 22 years after penning this unpublished portrait of Don Quixote, illustrated Barbara Nichols&#146;s "Tales of Don Quixote."

        The Smoke That Thunders

      New Horizon Press, UK 1983 - Exceedingly rare work by Irish author Quigley. Fine black leatherette hardcover with smidge of white on foot of rear board fore edge. Tips and spine ends sharp. Internally crisp and unmarked. 241pp. Pink background dj illustrated with warriors mask is lightly sunned on backstrip but has no tears or soil. Out of the bitter trouble times in Ireland emerges a man called Tom Sutton. Running from the shattered past he finds himself almost destitute on the vast continent of Africa. Then a bowl of soup changes his life. He travels north to seek a new adventurous future and make a little girl's dream come true. But was his past completely shattered, or was he destined to meet it face to face? During the trouble times in Ireland, Tom Sutton, a wanted man, loses his wife in a raid and belives his son suffered the same fate. He is forced to escape, and finds himself on the vast continent of Africa, sinking into the shame and degradation of alcohol. A little girl brings him back from a living death and together with her and his only friend from the trouble times, they travel north, through the small working gold mines of Southern Rhodesia to The Smoke That Thunders (Victoria Falls), finally settling in Northern Rhodesia. He attempts to build a new life with the help of a devoted African servant and friend, trying to forget the past. His son, whom he thought had died, was adopted by the Major who seeked to destroy Sutton during the trouble times; he re-enters the story in search of revenge on the father who deserted him. The story relates the complicated position between Heide, the child, fast reaching womanhood; Maria, the woman who shared Sutton's bed; and the memory of Grace and what she would have thought of him. Then there is Bradley, who, in a desperate bid to hid his own foul secret, commits destruction and murder in an attempt to move Sutton off his land, and John, his son, who would do or try anything if it could hurt his father. Could he even watch his father being mauled by a savage wounded lion? Weasal Byrn, the likeable little man, his friend at the start and at the end of a long and moving journey, and Simalala, the trusted servant, who would give his life for Sutton and gavit it for his son in a most bloody and gruelling way as can only be part of Africa in the raw. This is Tom Sutton's story, often funny, often sad, but filled with excitement as big as Africa and only The Smoke That Thunders determines the explosive climax of their hatred, passion and future.
