        Democracy [Photocopied Typescript]

      Los Angeles: Ziegler Associates. [ca. 1983]. Photocopied typescript of Didion's 1984 novel, with significant textual differences from the published book. An early typescript, reproducing some editorial annotations and her agent's stamp, with no publication information provided. Democracy was Didion's first novel in seven years, with two books of nonfiction in between. A post-Vietnam story involving the CIA, it could be seen as a fictional counterpart to her 1983 nonfiction book, Salvador: both tracked the underside of American involvement in Third World conflicts. Democracy was praised for its reportorial accuracy -- something Didion had cultivated in her nonfiction pieces -- but Didion challenged fictional convention by introducing herself as the narrator, the storyteller, and giving the novel a self-consciousness and reflectiveness more often found in her nonfiction than her fiction. 8-1/2" x 11" three-hole punched sheets; light green cardstock covers with title and author handwritten on the front cover; title written on bottom page edges; bound with two brass brads; near fine. An unusual, early state of a major novel by one of the most acclaimed writers of her era, winner of a Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from the National Book Foundation in 2007. First Edition. No Binding. Near Fine.

Quarto, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $3200.First edition, cloth issue, of MapplethorpeÂ’s “whirlwind tour of one ladyÂ’s anatomy, and other eccentricities” (Foreword),with over 100 photogravure plates, signed by both Mapplethorpe and bodybuilder Lisa Lyon on the half title.""Robert Mapplethorpe first gained widespread notice in the late 1970s for his elegantly composed, beautifully printed black-and-white photographs of the male figureÂ… But he photographed the female nude with equal stylishness. Throughout his career he made portraits and still lifes of an almost sublime simplicity and intensity"" (New York Times). Mapplethorpe's Lady Lisa Lyon is a groundbreaking collaboration between the photographer and pioneer bodybuilder Lisa Lyon: a work in which Mapplethorpe, like Diane Arbus and others, suggested ""the American Dream was enacted in different waysÂ… [by] groups of people with wildly diverse lifestyles and beliefs"" (Roth, 22). Text by Bruce Chatwin; Foreword by Mapplethorpe's longtime partner and influential photography collector, Samuel Wagstaff. Cloth issue, published the same year as the issue in wrappers, no priority established; this hardcover issue is scarcer. Open Book, 328. Publisher's review slip, two photographic prints laid in.A fine copy, desirable signed by Mapplethorpe and Lyon.

        Kruydt - Boeck Matthias De L'obel ( Lobelius ) Matthias De Lobel.

      herduk 1983 - Groot formaat, gebonden in kunstlederen, band met twee koperen sloten. Van dit boek werden 500 exemplaren gedrukt, genummerd van 001 tot 500; Dit is nummer 300. Facsimile - herdruk van de oorspronkelijke uitgave 1581.Beschrijvinghe der Planten en de Cruyden door Matthias De Lobel. Het oorspronkelijke boek, dat als basis diende van deze herdruk, werd gedrukt en uitgegeven door Christoffel Plantijn, Antwerpen, anno 1581. De Vlaamse plantkundige Lobelius (Matthias de l'Obel) (1538-1616) was onder meer dokter in Antwerpen en Middelburg en lijfarts van Willem van Oranje. Na diens dood (1584) verliet hij de Lage Landen en werd kruidkundige aan het hof van James I van Engeland. Hij verwierf faam vanwege de door hem ontwikkelde plantensystematiek, zoals beschreven in Stirpium adversaria nova (1570, volgens het titelblad; maar in het 'colofon' op de laatste bladzijde staat 1571). Dit kruidboek staat op naam van twee auteurs, beiden artsen: Petrus Pena (1538-1605) en Matthias Lobelius. Lobelius probeerde de planten in te delen op basis van de vorm van de bladeren, een voor zijn tijd totaal nieuwe visie. Zijn ruwe indeling in geslachten en families werd later door Linnaeus verder bestudeerd en ontwikkeld. In 1576 werd een uitgebreide versie van dit werk gepubliceerd en in 1581 verscheen de Nederlandse vertaling, het Kruydtboeck. 0 g.

        Gilles Peress: Telex Iran, In the Name of Revolution

      Millerton, NY: Aperture, 1983. Paperback. SIGNED. First American edition, first printing. Very Good paperback with light rubbing to the edges and extremities, a light bump to the heel, and a moderate bump to the upper fore corner; in a custom acetate wrap and a custom slipcase. BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, IN A BOX. By the end of 1979, Iran was in upheaval: the revolution had ended, Khomeini was declared Supreme Leader, and the Islamic Republic of Iran was born. In November, students seized the American Embassy and with it, 52 American diplomats and citizens, and held them hostage for 444 days. On a whim and with the hope that he could better understand what was happening in Iran, photojournalist Gilles Peress flew to Teheran in December 1979 and for five weeks prowled the streets and countryside, recording his perceptions, encounters, and emotions. The images are juxtaposed with his telegrams to Magnum, his photo agency "and give an urgency not only to the photographs but to the life of one restless photojournalist living in a foreign land from day to day." The photographer's first book. Photographs by Gilles Peress; essay by Gholam-Hossein Sa'edi; uncredited introduction; background to events chronology. SIGNED BY PERESS on colophon page opposite the title page; no inscription. 104 pages; approx. 100 b&w illustrations; 10.75 x 15 inches. Ref: Parr & Badger, Photobook, Vol 2, p.252-253; Roth, Book of 101 Books, p. 28; Auer, 802 Photo Books p.652; Hasselblad Center, Open Book, p.330; Le Livre de photographies, Vol. 2, p.253.

        Hiroshima

      1983. Signed. HERSEY, John. Hiroshima. With a New Poem by Robert Penn Warren and Silk-Screens by Jacob Lawrence. New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1983. Quarto, original full black morocco, original black cloth slipcase. $2300.Limited edition of this “quietest and best” account of Hiroshima, number 868 of only 1500 copies signed by John Hersey, Robert Penn Warren, and Jacob Lawrence, and illustrated with eight color serigraphs by Lawrence.“The quietest and the best of all the stories that have been written about the most spectacular explosion in the time of man” (New York Times Book Review). “John Hersey once described himself as a novelist of contemporary historyÂ… In 1946 he visited Hiroshima, interviewed survivors of the first atomic bomb attack, and published the New Yorker article which changed him profoundly. In HiroshimaÂ… Hersey drew from the victims themselves the understanding of history that had eluded him as a war correspondent. The six Hiroshima residents told him how they had lived before the bomb struck, why they were not killed, and precisely how illness, exhaustion, and personal sorrow had qualified their survival” (Contemporary Novelists, 634). Stylistically, Jacob LawrenceÂ’s haunting illustrations, printed in 11 colors, owe an obvious debt to Cubism and Matisse: “the flat, sharp overlaps of form, the reliance on silhouette, and a high degree of abstraction in the color. But there is something more demotic behind those colors. They came, as Lawrence acknowledged, more from his experience in Harlem than from other art” (Robert Hughes). LEC 535. Pristine, fine condition.

        Real Peace

      1983. First Edition . Signed. NIXON, Richard. Real Peace: A Strategy for the West. New York: (1983). Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jacket. $1850.Limited first edition, one of 1000 privately printed copies of Nixon’s fifth book, an exceptional presentation copy with a memorable association, inscribed by the President in blue ink on the half title to the nephew of General Douglas MacArthur, ""To Douglas MacArthur II, With warm regards from Richard Nixon, 6-10-'85."" Douglas MacArthur II’s distinguished diplomatic career, in which his tenure as ambassador to Japan earned him the cover on Time as “'the principal architect of present-day U.S. policy toward Japan,” culminated in his service as Nixon’s ambassador to Iran from 1969-72. In Real Peace President Nixon identifies the relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union as key to world peace, asserting the need for ""a policy of hard-headed détente… based on a strength of arms and strength of will."" This exceptional presentation/association copy is inscribed by Nixon to Douglas MacArthur II, the namesake and nephew of General Douglas MacArthur, who was Nixon's ambassador to Iran from 1969-72, culminating a distinguished diplomatic career in which he served as ""Ambassador to Japan from 1957 to 1961, a period when relations between Tokyo and Washington were put on a new footing of equality after 15 years of Japanese subordination… MacArthur went on to become Ambassador to Belgium, Assistant Secretary of State for congressional relations [and] Ambassador to Austria… While he was Ambassador to Japan, he played a crucial role in prolonged negotiations during which Japanese grievances were addressed. Eventually, a new United States-Japanese mutual security treaty was signed and ratified by both Governments and went into effect in 1960. In that year, Time magazine called him 'the principal architect of present-day U.S. policy toward Japan.'"" During WWII, MacArthur ""was assigned, during the Nazi occupation of France, to Marshall Henri Philippe Petain's puppet capital at Vichy in central France. When the Vichy Government broke off relations with the United States in 1942, he was turned over to the Nazis and was interned for 16 months"" (New York Times). As his death he was remembered as a leader ""who never forgot his heritage. 'If you were a MacArthur,' he once remarked, ""from the time you were in your cradle, the responsibilities of duty, honor, and country came with your mother's milk'… He lived and served his country through the most tumultuous and yet promising time of human history, from the rise of Nazi Germany through the post-Cold War era"" ((Bo Hi Pak, Chairman, Washington Times). This copy one of a privately printed limited edition of only 1000 copies ""for a select group of government officials and opinion leaders"" (publicity material); a trade edition was issued by Little, Brown the following year. With ""First Printing September 1983"" on copyright page. Book fine; lightest edge-wear, faint dampstaining to dust jacket. A very scarce about-fine inscribed presentation copy with an especially distinctive association.
