A thank you note is laid-in as is a reprint of Art Seidenbaum's review, which appeared in the Los Angeles Times Book Review of Sunday, June 10,1984 (this sheet is Very Good with several folds and ceases). The book is approximately 10 by 12 inches. Included is a separately bound, in wraps, Fine copy of Stegner's Afterword. Over-run sheets from the book were used by the publishers to produce this unsigned version of the Afterword, which included one of Wikstrom's illustrations. Apparently they used these as presentations - number of copies is unknown but undoubtedly small.

        Death of a Salesman, Certain Private Conversations in Two Acts and a Requiem

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1984. Limited Edition. Leather. Fine. Baskin, Leonard. no. 1107 of 1500, 4to - over 9.75" - 12" tall, 167 pp., signed by author and illustrator. Arthur Miller was an American playwright, essayist, and figure in the twentieth-century American Theatre. In Miller's more than thirty plays, which have won him a Pulitzer Prize and multiple Tony Awards, he puts in question "death and betrayal and injustice and how we are to account for this little life of ours." For nearly six decades, Miller has been creating characters that wrestle with power conflicts, personal and social responsibility, the repercussions of past actions, and the twin poles of guilt and hope. (N. B. info from The National Endowment for the Humanities website). ***ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: Leonard Baskin (1922-2000) was an artistic genius whose works almost defy categorization. Eminent in sculpting, illustration, printmaking and also as a typographer and printer, he pursued multiple art forms all of which have, as an underlying thread, social consciousness and a high regard for humanity (N.B., above information from the website of the Galerie St. Etienne). Mr. Baskin founded The Gehenna Press in 1942 while at Yale University, taking his inspiration from William Blake's example as both a poet and an artist/bookmaker. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound by Gray Parrot in full rust-brown Nigerian goatskin with gilt lettering on the spine, five tissue-guarded etchings by Leonard Baskin; printed by the Wild Carrot Letterpress, set in American and English monotype Bulmer on mould-made Cartiere Enrico Magnani paper; pagination: (5) - (165), blank (166), colophon (167); 10.5" tall, signed by author Arthur Miller and illustrator Leonard Baskin, Limited Edition no. 1107 of 1500; slipcase bound in grey paper with gilt lettering on the spine. ***CONDITION: Book is in fine condition with the leather binding smooth and supple, the colour on the spine deep (not sunned), corners straight and unrubbed, solid hinges and a strong text block, clean and bright inside and entirely free of prior owner markings. The slipcase is in near fine condition, strong and sturdy with some wear to corners and opening, a bump to the top left corner and very slight bump to bottom right corner. ***CITATION: LEC no. 540. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

      MEDU Art Ensemble 1984 - Lithograph. Unique. 50 x 42 cm. This rare poster formed part of the exhibition at the Johannesburg Art Gallery.Illustrated in Thami Mnyele and MEDU Art Ensemble Retrosepctive. Johannesburg Art Gallery. 2009. (see page 92). Due to the fact that Thami Mnyele and 13 other cultural workers were murdered in Gabarone , Botswana by the SADF in the early hours of 14 June 1985 in a covert cross-border raid MEDU ceased to exist from this day forward. Their archives and workshops were destroyed and/or confiscated and brought back to South Africa as examples of communist inspired "art treason". As a result very few original posters survive today, in some cases one estimates less than 5 copies. In some cases only 50 or 80 copies were printed which were all made by hand and were usually silkscreened. Also Illustrated "The rationalism of nationalism?" published by Warren Siebrits, Johannesburg in 2008. pg 22 and is the exact poster used for the exhibition and making of the catalogue. This item is sold together with a copy of both books. The poster is in very good condition. Photos on request. ONCO (Or Nearest Cash Offer). Free Shipping Worldwide. Registered Airmail.

        Sting & Trudie Styler at a party in Neasden following a Police concert at Wembley, New Year's Eve. 31/12/1984

      745 x 520mm. Giclée Print using Archival pigment inks on Hahnemüle Fine Art Pearl 285gsm paper. Limited edition of 10 numbered copies signed by the photographer. Alan Davidson is a press photographer based in London for more than 30 years, Alan has photographed the rich, the famous, the before-they-were-famous to those that have fallen from grace. Going through his vast archive, with new treasures found within the old brown manilla envelopes, reads like a who's who of the great and good (and the very bad) of London society. Cinema stars rub shoulders with pop stars, royalty with politicians. Working from the late 1960s to the present day Alan remembers the days before celebrities became surrounded by 30 young publicists and before there were 50 photographers at every event you went to, allowing him to take intimate and relaxed portraits, unlike the anodyne syndicated press shots of today.
