      Fort Lauderdale, FL: S.i., 1984. First Edition. Quarto; printed sheets (rectos only), comb-bound into illustrated card wrappers; [vi], 87, [8]pp. Inscribed by de Groot to a rare bookseller on the title page and dated 1988. Holograph date of "Jan.'88" in ink to upper right corner of title page and front wrapper, else Fine. Laid in is a 1-page TLS from de Groot to the recipient, discussing rights to the play, changes to the script, and the play's premiere in Miami, FL, along with an inquiry regarding signed Hemingway books for sale. Together with the original mailing envelope and a Fine copy of the 8pp program for the play's premiere at the Colony Theater in Miami Beach, FL. Self-published draft of the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist's play, set in Hemingway's home in Cuba during the 1950's. In addition to working for south Florida's Sun Sentinel, de Groot was also a member of the award-winning team that covered the Kent State shootings in 1970. de Groot's depiction of Hemingway relied more on "the man and his exploits" than his literary legacy, and the play was a result of his life-long fascination with the author. The play premiered at the Colony Theater in Miami Beach in 1987, starring veteran Miami-based actor William Hindman as Hemingway. Ten years later the play ran for 73 performances at the Douglas Fairbanks Theater in New York, directed by John Henry Davis and starring Len Cariou as Hemingway. Rare; we find no copies for sale in the trade (as of August 2015), and while OCLC notes 2 later editions of the play (1988, by Lime Tree Productions, and 1989, by the Hemingway Western Studies Center, Boise State University), this self-published edition is not found in the holdings of any member institution.

Umfangreiche Korrespondenz mit Siv Lind in Helsinki (1), Tuula Wikander (1), Sally Davis (1), einem Leo (1), einer Mrs. Stahl (1), dem Publizisten Rolando Pieraccini (2) und dem Literaturwissenschaftler und Schriftsteller Robert DeMaria (11). Nebst Berichten über eigene Arbeiten (so zumeist in den Briefen an DeMaria) findet sich in dem Brief an Mrs. Stahl eine äußerst interessante Betrachtung über den Nobelpreis: „[.] My views on the Nobel Prize are simple and have more to do with economic need then with literary merit. I think I deserve it, for instance, because I think I deserve to have some kind of financial reward for working so hard. I doubt if there is a serious nexus between the Prize and genuine literary achievement: politics always comes into it somewhere, or else something celebratory – I don’t think Saul Bellow would have got it had it not been for America’s bicentenary; I don’t think Patrick White would have got it had it not been for the need to recognise the existence of Australia. If the Prize recognised genuine merit, the writers now dead who should have received it are: James Joyce, Vladimir Nabokov, Ronald Firbank, Ford Madox Ford, Franz Kafka, Hoffmannsthal [!], Cocteau, D. H. Lawrence, Evelyn Waugh [.]" (August 27, 1977). - Mit 4 ms. Gegenbriefen von Robert DeMaria (auf 6 Bll.) und 7 Bll.

        Photo Album]: Original Photographs of a Young African-American Boy who was a 1984 Olympic Torchbearer

      (Los Angeles 1984 - Quarto. Pictorial boards illustrating Olympic scenes. Boards slightly soiled, about fine. The album contains 92 color snapshots (3" x 5") of a young African-American torchbearer and the community excitement surrounding his participation in the festivities leading up to the 23rd Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles in 1984. The album shows him carrying the torch, with various relatives brandishing the unlit torch, posing for photos, signing autographs, and cutting into a congratulatory cake for "Elliott" thanking the Morley Construction Company, who appears to have been his sponsor, and with many street scenes. The photos are housed in an official Olympic album. The 1984 torch relay was the first to invite nominations from the public, a system replicated in future years. It was also the first to charge torchbearers for their participation, with the fee working out to about $3,000 per kilometer. Anybody who could raise the entry fee would be able to sponsor one kilometer and bear a torch or designate a person to do so. The scheme, called the "Youth Legacy Kilometer" raised nearly $11 million, all of which was given to charities. The Hellenic Olympic Committee (HOC), unhappy with what they considered to be the commercialization of the torch relay, threatened to stop the event from happening, but an agreement was negotiated just days before the planned ceremony. On the morning of May 8, the torch relay left on its 84-day journey from Olympia, Greece to Los Angeles, California. The relay passed through 33 states and Washington, DC, reaching 41 of the largest American cities and incorporated 3,636 runners. The location of the album photos is not definitely known by us, but it appears to be on the outskirts of Los Angeles. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Being a Complete, Detailed, and Accurate Description of the Wild Sports of the East; and Exhibiting, in a Novel and Interesting Manner, the Natural History of the Elephant, the Rhinoceros, the Tiger, the Leopard […] The Whole Taken from the Manuscript and Designs of Captain Thomas Williamson … the Drawings by Samuel Howitt. Oblong quarto. Bound in the publisher's red half morocco, red cloth sides, spine lettered and decorated gilt, single gilt rules to covers, red endpapers, top edge gilt. Housed in the publisher's red solander box. 40 colour plates. A very attractive, bright copy. Limited issue, number 40 of 350 copies. An attractive facsimile of the original 1807 edition of "the most beautiful book on Indian sport in existence" (Schwerdt). Howitt "is first recorded as having a property at Chigwell, in Essex, and living as a gentleman of means—a keen sportsman, hunter, rider, and angler. A self-taught artist, he turned professional when financial difficulties forced him to earn a living. He drew on his enthusiasm and knowledge as a sportsman and produced sporting and natural history paintings, etchings, and illustrations. He sometimes worked in oils but more frequently in watercolours, and he was an accomplished etcher … [he] had an innate capacity for drawing animals, from commonplace hare and deer to exotic species that he studied in menageries. He was an animated draughtsman, and his drawings of hunts and sporting events have a fluidity and excitement fitting to the subject" (ODNB). Williamson had served for 20 years in Bengal, and here describes his "pig-sticking adventures; shooting tigers from machans and elephant back, hunting buffalo, driving hogs, bears and wolves; and shooting peacocks and other game" creating "a benchmark in capturing the sporting bibliophile's imagination" (Czech).

        Nathalie Sarraute - François Photographies Originales EDITION ORIGINALE

      S.l.: Par l'auteur, 1984. Fine. Par l'auteur, S.l. 1984-1987, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, 2 planches photographiques. - Diptych original photographic portraits in black and white made and drawn by Marc Trivier. The two photographs, taken facing are: - An original photographic portrait of Nathalie Sarraute in Paris in 1987 - An original photographic portrait of François taken to the psychiatric hospital in 1984 Manage Portrait artist, anonymous,.. crazy, slaughterhouse or tree: Marc Trivier photographed each subject with the same interrogative intensity. All made in the same square, elementary and closed without editing or cropping format photographs seem less staging a subject - famous or unknown, elected or deposed, living or dead - interrogate a presence. "What interested me was not just photographing a body or face, but this particular situation is someone doing the photo of someone else." By comparing portraits artists in their corresponding altered Trivier undresses the work of its effects and reveals the enigmatic photographic nude body. "In his cosmogony, every thing, every being, plant, animal or human, deserves the same respect for they are all facing the same iron law. Solitude." (Luke Desbenoit in Télérama, 05/03/2011 on the occasion of the retrospective Marc Trivier at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Silver prints unsigned, like most works of Trivier. Unique tests taken by the artist. Rare diptych of one of the greatest contemporary photographers. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Diptyque de portraits photographiques originaux en noir et blanc réalisés et tirés par Marc Trivier. Les deux photographies, mises en regard, sont: - Un portrait photographique original de Nathalie Sarraute à Paris en 1987. - Un portrait photographique original de François pris à l'hôpital psychiatrique de Manage en 1984. 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.» En confrontant les portraits d'artistes à leur correspondant altéré, 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). Tirages argentiques non signés, comme la plupart des oeuvres de Trivier. Epreuves uniques tirées par l'artiste. Rarissime diptyque d'un des grands photographes contemporains.
