        The Name of the Rose [Rare Signed Uncorrected Page Proof]

      San Diego, New York, London: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich [A Helen and Kurt Wolff Book], 1983. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the exceedingly scarce Uncorrected Page Proof for the first American edition of this breakthrough Umberto Eco novel, SIGNED BY UMBERTO ECO on the half-title (some sunning to the spine and light fading to wrapper extremities, slight stain to the front wrapper, staple to to the top of the front wrapper, most likely used to affix some publisher's material no longer present). An historical murder mystery set in Italian monastery in the year 1327 and Eco's debut novel, the novel combines semiotics, biblical analysis, medieval studies, and literary theory. [Eco is a semiotician of the first order and a University Professor, essayist, philosopher, literary critic, and novelist.] In the story, a Franciscan friar, William of Baskerville, and his novice Adso of Melk -- who narrates the story, arrive at an Italian monastery to attend a theological disputation only to find the monastery disturbed by a recent suicide. A number of other monks then die under mysterious circumstances and William is asked to conduct an investigation. The novel provided the basis for the 1986 movie of the same name starring Sean Connery as William of Baskerville and Christian Slater as Adso of Melk. The Uncorrected Page Proof for the novel --- not to be confused with the later and much more common Advance Reading Copy --- is itself quite difficult to find, and signed copies of the Uncorrected Page Proof are like hen's teeth. A Very Good copy of the scarce Uncorrected Page Proof for Umberto Eco's breakthrough novel, SIGNED BY UMBERTO ECO and thus RARE INDEED.

        The Belgariad: 5 Volumes: Pawn of Prophecy; Queen of Sorcery; Magician's Gambit; Castle of Wizardry; Enchanters' End Game

      UK: Century. London, Century, 1983-1985. Hardback first edition and first impressions. Each book is in fine condition; with browning to the paper as is common, and few areas of light bumping and wear here and there. A stunning set presented with the two subsequent omnibus editions published shortly afterwards. Though the titles of the five volumes appear to be your usual run-of-the-mill derivative fantasy, Eddings' series was somewhat a precursor to that. It is still derivative in the sense that it draws strongly from Tolkien, but Eddings was one of the first along with Le Guin and Brooks to re-introduce fantasy to very large audiences. And like Le Guin (but perhaps unlike Brooks), Eddings' early works are highly sought-after, not only for the volumes in themselves but also for what they represent in the history of fantasy fiction. A real fantasy highlight and a wonderful set. 1983-1985 . Fine. Hardback. 1st Edition. 1983.

Mary Oliver was described by The New York Times as "far and away, [America's] best-selling poet." She has won both the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and the National Book Award in 1992. Oliver's poetry has been called an "indefatigable guide to the natural world, particularly to its lesser-known aspects" (Kumin, 1993). "Visionary as Emerson [… she is] among the few American poets who can describe and transmit ecstasy, while retaining a practical awareness of the world as one of predators and prey," reviewed The Nation. Holly Prado of Los Angeles Times Book Review noted that Oliver's work "touches a vitality in the familiar that invests it with a fresh intensity.

        Deux lettres autographes et une tapuscrite signées *

      Paris, entre le 24.12.1979 et le 8.3.1983. - 3 feuillets, à l'adresse de la Rue Verneuil gaufrée sur la missive inaugurale, imprimée en typographie sur le deuxième courrier et manuscrite sur l'ultime, enveloppes adressées des deux derniers jointes. Par ces trois bonnes lettres, répondant à diverses demandes concernant Charles-Albert Cingria, Dubuffet se situe face à l'écrivain, de près de 20 ans son aîné, avec lequel il eut des rapports intermittents dès l'âge de 18 ans jusqu'à sa mort. Il y évoque à la fois des affinités de sympathie et des divergences de sensibilité créative, lui-même tournant le dos aux traditions auxquelles Charles-Albert semblait tant attaché; aussi éprouve-t-il quelques difficulté à imaginer comment s'associer aux manifestations d'hommage pour lesquelles on le sollicite.Il déplore d'autre part la perte d'une correspondance nourrie et fleurie, entretenue avec l'écrivain. Le mot de la fin félicite le professeur qui fut l'un des collaborateurs de l'exposition du centenaire à Berne dont le catalogue (envoyé à Dubuffet qui ornera la couverture de la seconde version de cette brochure à l'occasion du déplacement de la manifestation à la Bibliothèque Nationale Française un an après) reste une référence incontournable.Petit ensemble instructif et amusant.

        ARCHIVE OF LETTERS: 21 pages

      1983 - 1990. Letters. Folds from mailing. Near Fine. 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.&

        Telex Iran: In the Name of Revolution

      New York: Aperture, 1983. First American edition, published simultaneously with the first French edition of the photojournalist's first book. Folio, original stiff photographic wrappers, photographic endpapers. Inscribed by Gilles Peress. In fine condition. Roth 101; Open Book, 330; Parr and Badger II, 252. Peress described his art well when he said, "I work much more like a forensic photographer in a certain way, collecting evidence. I've started to take more still lifes, like a police photographer, collecting evidence as a witness. I've started to borrow a different strategy than that of the classic photojournalist. The work is much more factual and much less about good photography. I don't care that much anymore about "good photography." I'm gathering evidence for history, so that we remember" (U.S. News). "Telex Iran… chronicles the crisis in United States-Iran relations in late 1979 and early 1980 when militant Iranian students seized the American Embassy and held its inhabitants hostage. Peress' book is oversized, graphically bold and… provides numerous perspectives on an extremely sensitive political problem… Along with reportage of major political events, Peress' pictures record mundane spaces, places, people and moments of Iranian life in order to emphasize the incomprehensibility and confusion of the environment before his eyes. In this way the photographer is able to visualize precisely the culture gap that made such a historical misunderstanding possible. It is a brilliant tactic" (Roth, 28).
