        Um Úrnat frá Björk - Handmade Original Book

      A very rare Icelandic fairy tale and poetry book written and produced by Björk in 1984 when she was a teenager. 16 pp., folded paper with pictures and poetic text, with handwritten text and outlines printed in facsimile, extensively illustrated in original watercolor and colored pencils entirely in Björk's hand, this example also signed and inscribed by Björk on the first page in blue ink. Acquired directly by our consignor from Björk in downtown Reykjavík when she was a young girl selling these on the corner, just on the threshold of world stardom. The text is a story/poem of Björk's fantasy beings, some of whom later appeared in other of her texts. A few small stains to the cover and scattered small impressions to the pages, otherwise in fine condition. Other examples of this book, apparently existing in fewer than 100 copies total, each uniquely illustrated, were recently displayed in the 2015 Björk exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, NY. No copies recorded by Worldcat and none to our knowledge in the trade.

        Specimens of Polynesian Tapa Assembled from Various Institutions and Private Collections

      San Francisco: privately published, 1984. Folio folder comprising introductory text booklet of 40 pages, inventory list, botanical specimen sheet and illustrations followed by 33 tapa samples in individual loose letterpress folders; an excellent copy with original cloth and folding goatskin portfolio; errata, handling instructions and gloves included as issued. Rare limited edition of the most ambitious modern project to preserve historical tapa samples from across the Pacific in a deluxe privately-printed edition. The tapa samples were contributed by private collectors and institutions, including the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford, the Alexander Brody collection in Switzerland and the estate of General Horatio Robley of Moko fame. Some of the tapa has illustrious provenance, such as material taken to England by Queen Emma of Hawaii in 1865. The geographical scope of the material assembled is astonishing, with specimens from Hawaii, Fiji, Futuna, Marquesas, Mangareva, Pitcairn Island, Rarotonga, Samoa, Tahiti and Tonga.This is number 32 of a total of 95 copies; however, not all copies contain the same number of samples, unsurprising given the variable quantities of the antique tapa available for the project. Sets numbered 1 to 12 in the series contained 40 tapa samples each; those numbered 13-35 each contain 33 examples, and so on in descending order. As the list of subscribers indicates, most of the first twelve sets reside in institutional collections, making the most complete state of Severson's Specimens of Polynesian Tapa effectively unobtainable. Indeed, all states are rare and we are aware of only two other examples to have appeared on the market in the past two decades. Each of the tapa samples is housed in a separate folder with information relating to its provenance and history, including a photographic plate reproducing the sheet in its entirety prior to dissection. Aside from the salient historical importance of the portfolio, it is a beautiful example of recent letterpress printing, with all the various parts being entirely typeset by hand by Andrew Hoyem and printed on handmade Italian paper at the Arion Press in 1984.

Lockhart, Director, Arkansas Department of Correction, Pine Bluff, Arkansas.The document, in part, ""Whereas Darryl W. Richley was duly presented under proper proceedings to the Circuit Court of Benton County, Arkansas, on a charge of Capital Murder, and, after being tried in that Court by a duly empaneled jury, was found guilty and his sentence and punishment fixed at death by electrocution; and Whereas the conviction having been appealed to the Supreme Court of Arkansas; and, upon review of this case, the judgment and sentence of the Circuit Court of Benton County, Arkansas, was affirmed…""Now, Therefore, I, Bill Clinton, by virtue of the power and authority vested in me by law as Governor of the State of Arkansas, do hereby set June 29, 1984, between the hours of sunrise and sunset as the day and date upon which the Commissioner of the Arkansas Department of Correction will carry into effect the judgment and sentence of the Benton County Circuit Court by executing the said Darryl V.

At the time, Richley was 29 years old. All four were sentenced to death but the sentence for the fourth man, Michael Orndorff, was struck down in 1990; he was then sentenced to life in prison. The constitutionality of the joint trial was one of the issues argued during more than 12 years of appeals. After numerous appeals, including the U.S. Supreme Court which rejected arguments they were treated like ""hogs at a slaughter,"" on August 3, 1994, Darryl V.

        MIAMI BLUES - UNCORRECTED PROOF COPY, INSCRIBED BY ELMORE LEONARD

      New York: St. Martin's Press, 1984. First Edition. Octavo; dark yellow wrappers printed in black; 190pp. Inscribed by Leonard on the half-title page: "To Ian Clark / from a friend of Chas. Willeford / Elmore Leonard." Trifle wear to extremities, slight upward life to front wrapper, with faint spotting to rear wrapper; Very Good+ to Near Fine. Scarce uncorrected proof copy of Willeford's first Hoke Moseley novel. Though Willeford's career started in the late 1940's, fame came to him later in life, and that fame was brought about by the publication of 'Miami Blues.' Among the highest advance praise for his novel came from Elmore Leonard, who wrote: "Willeford, writing with quiet authority, has the ability to make his situations, scenes, dialogue, sound absolutely real. No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford." A uniquely-inscribed copy by one of Willeford's earliest advocates, and the only proof copy we have seen for this title. Basis for the 1990 George Armitage film starring Alec Baldwin, Fred Ward, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

        Angry Typed Letter Signed on personal stationery

      Lebanon, OH, 1984. unbound. 1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, Lebanon, Ohio, October 26, 1984. In this strongly-worded letter, Armstrong takes exception with the Editor of Guideposts, who decided to interview Armstrong's mother for an article that contained numerous errors, in part: "The story you referred to is certainly not my story. It was apparently based on an interview with my mother. After the story was originally brought to my attention, shortly after its publication, I asked my mother if she was responsible for the many errors of fact and misquotes in the article. She assured me she was not. It was unbelievable to me that Guideposts would print unverified quotations from a quarter century earlier. I could only conclude that policy and integrity of the magazine was akin to that of the National Enquirer. I am unable to think of any condition under which I would approve text or collaborate in any way with Guideposts." Note: Guideposts, a Christian faith-based publication, was started in 1945 by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. Natural folds; very good condition. American Astronaut and the first person to walk on the moon.
