      Cheloniidae Press, Williamsburg, MA 1983 - One of 10 deluxe copies bound in full vellum, with an extra suite, original pencil drawing of "Tortoise Shout," all on Fabriano Perusia, from a total issue of 310, signed by the artist, Alan James Robinson, on the colophon page of the book and on the original etch portrait of D.H. Lawrence as well as on each of the seven individual woodengravings in the extra suite and the drawing. Page size: 11 x 8 inches. Six poems by Lawrence are accompanied by seven woodengravings by Robinson and one etching. This edition was designed by Art Larson and Alan Robinson. The text was set by Winifred and Michael Bixler in Centaur and Arrighi with some additional hand composition by Art Larson and printed by Harold McGrath. Bound by Gray Parrot: full vellum, housed in tan cloth clamshell box with vellum spine, extra suite of the wood engravings and drawing in portfolio laid in to clamshell box with book, fine.

All 3 volumes are signed by the authors: Volumes 1 & 2 are signed by William Manchester; volume 3 is signed by Paul Reid, whom the author chose to finish the volume following his death in 2004. Each are near fine to fine in near fine dust jackets with light wear. A very nice set, uncommon signed. Manchester has such control over a huge and moving narrative, such illumination of character . . . that he can claim the considerable achievement of having assembled enough powerful evidence to support Isaiah Berlin's judgment of Churchill as 'the largest human being of our time" (The New Yorker).

        Cloud Nine / The Dreamer and The Realist (signed)

      Cloudcrest, Nashville, Indiana 1983 - Self-published autobiography by the Indiana artist who invented many Cracker Jack prizes as well as the pop-up book, the latter published so successfully in the early 1930s by Blue Ribbon Books. Color frontispiece of the artist's painting "Saturday Bath." Numerous B&W plates of author's other rural realist paintings, reminiscent of A. Wyeth. Boards want to stand open by about 1/4-inch, and text block will not close itself, else we would grade "very good." Signed in full, "C. Carey Cloud," in black or dark blue ink diagonally to the robin's-egg-blue front endpaper. In the same hand, bottom of matching front pastedown is numbered "282." In March of 1983, Indiana's Brown County Democrat newspaper reported that Cloud said he had sold half of his planned edition of 1,000 signed and numbered copies. How many were actually signed before he died the following year we don't know. We have never seen another. Cat's Curiosities sells used books which may have been exposed over the years to a number of common atmospheric agents. We attempt to identify books which have a damp or musty smell, when we sell them at all. Otherwise, buyers should assume our used books have been shelved inside human habitations and have been exposed over the years to some combination of wood smoke, tobacco smoke, leather dressing, or other aromatic agents unknown to us. We offer no certificates of hypoallergenic purity. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Area Archive

      [New York: n.p. [New York: n.p., 1983-1987]. Contents uniformly in near fine to fine condition.. Collection of 125 flyers and posters from New York's hottest and most inventive nightclub, Area, during the mid-1980s. Although it was a disco, Area was a purely visual, happenings-based venue, where New York's art, music, design, fashion, and literary worlds collided; Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, or Jean-Michel Basquiat might be brushing up against Michael Forbes, David Byrne, or Georgio Armani, and Stephen Saban would be there to remind them what happened afterwards in his Details magazine column. Unlike other downtown clubs that focused on music or dancing, Area was driven by art and the scene that it engendered, through its theme nights, elaborate installations, and inventive flyers that seemed to embody Warhol's concept of business art. This archive includes Area's famously unconventional invitations, posters, articles, booklets, and other ephemera from the nightclub's short-lived, yet significant, four-year history. Features two cards enclosed in envelopes addressed to Richard Serra. A defining celebration of the creative hedonism of 1980s New York and a remarkable documentation of the "Bright Lights, Big City" years.

        William Klein: Photographe Etc. (Signed First Edition)

      Centre Georges Pompidou / Herscher Paris: Centre Georges Pompidou / Herscher, 1983. First Edition. 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.
