        Telex Persan.

      Contrejour, Paris 1984 - First French edition, published simultaneously with the American edition of the photojournalist's first book. Folio, original stiff photographic wrappers, photographic endpapers. Inscribed by the photographer, Gilles Peress. In fine condition. 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).

        PAPA: A PLAY BASED ON THE LEGENDARY LIVES OF ERNEST HEMINGWAY - ORIGINAL PLAY SCRIPT FOR THE ONE-MAN, OFF-BROADWAY PLAY, WITH TLS AND ACCOMPANYING PROGRAM FOR THE PREMIERE AT THE COLONY THEATER

      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.

      Malta, New York, Princeton und Monaco, 1969 bis 1984. - Zusammen 15½ SS. auf 19 Bll. Verschiedene Formate. Mit einigen Beilagen (s. u.) 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]
