        Mario Botta: Buildings and projects 1961-1982

      OFFERING: A superb pre-publication presentation done by Mario Botta for an unnamed recipient about a month before public release. On the half-title page, he has executed an original architectural sketch in pen & ink, sited in San Francisco and dated May 4, 1984.

It is reminiscent of his 1981 cylindrical design with staircase for the Stabio House.

        Flaubert's Parrot [Signed]

      London Jonathan Cape 1984 First Impression ("First published 1984") of the author's "most celebrated book . . . hailed as an exemplary postmodernist text . . ." (Literary Encyclopedia) 8vo: 190pp. Publisher's lime-green cloth, spine stamped in gilt; pictorial dust jacket priced £8.50. Signed and dated (not inscribed) by Barnes on title-page. Virtually pristine, a Very Fine copy, apparently unread. Short-listed for the Man Booker Prize; awarded the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize As New ¶ "Flaubert's Parrot tells the story of a retired doctor, Geoffrey Braithwaite, who is fascinated by the French nineteenth century writer Gustave Flaubert and, on a personal level, is trying to come to terms with the death of his wife, Ellen. Though these two concerns seem separate at first, as the book progresses, the relation between the two strands is brought to light. On the one hand, Geoffrey and Ellen Braithwaite appear as a contemporary English replica of Charles and Emma Bovary in Flaubert's masterpiece Madame Bovary; on the other hand, the narrator's obsession with Flaubert is a way to displace and assuage the grief caused by his wife's infidelity and suicide."

All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

It was Fredric Brown's short stories for which he was most notable, particularly with other authors who recognized his genius. He was the master of the unexpected twist, the paradox as it were. Many of his stories explored the offbeat, experimenting with the written word and pushing it as far as possible. Fredric Brown was awarded the 1947 Edgar Award for Best First Mystery with The Fabulous Clipjoint (from Pulp Fiction Mysteries). Dennis MacMillan Publishing assembled all of Fredric Brown's crime short stories from the pulps into a 19 volume series of beautifully crafted books.

        Dreyfus Affair

      1984. First Edition . SHAHN, Ben. The Dreyfus Affair. The Ben Shahn Prints. Cincinnati: Crossroads, 1984. Large folio portfolio (13 by 17 inches), book in original gray paper boards, eight color pochoir lithographs in descriptive paper sleeves, loose as issued, clamshell box. $2600.Limited first edition, number XXII of only 60 copies withheld from sale (450 total), a magnificent portfolio production with the first collected publication of Shahn’s 1930s Dreyfus prints—eight exhibition-size color lithographic prints en pochoir—printed on Grandes Arches handmade vergé paper, loose as issued in descriptive sleeves, with a book of essays, in the original box.In the 1930s Ben Shahn and his friend Walker Evans made plans for an exhibit, and Shahn was drawn to the subject of the Dreyfus affair, the scandalous turn-of-the-century French trial of a Jewish officer that prompted Zola’s legendary J’Accuse! (1898). Shahn later recalled: “I set to work and presented the leading malefactors of the case, the defenders and of course Dreyfus himself. Under each portrait I lettered in my best lithographic script a long or short legend setting forth the role which the original of the portrait had played in the celebrated affair. What had been undertaken lightly became very significant in my eyes. Within the Dreyfus pictures I could see a new avenue of expression opening up” (Shape of Content, 36-7). In these vivid color images, Shahn “presented his understanding of the personalities of these men through a series of details—their pose, facial features, clothing, and the style and length of the script he used.” This approach marked a turning point in his work, compelling Shahn to “integrate these broad, loose areas of color, the result of encounters with modernist art in Europe, with the sharp, distinctive line he had developed during those early years in the lithography shop” (Pohl, Ben Shahn, 38). This rare limited edition, the first collected publication of Shahn’s 1930s prints, contains eight exhibition-size color lithographic prints en pochoir, housed in a large clamshell case, each print loose as issued within a descriptive paper sleeve, accompanied by a book containing the never before published reproduction of Shahn’s “Portrait of Émile Zola” (1938), along with a printing of Zola’s J’Accuse! and essays by Shahn’s wife Brenarda Bryson Shahn, historian Egal Feldman and Charles Westheimer. Lithographic prints titled: Captain Alfred Dreyfus, Georges Picquart, Paleologue and Demange, Labori and Picquart, Marie-Chjarles-Ferdinand Walsin-Esterhazy, Major Armand-Auguste-Ferdinand-Marie Mercier du Paty de Clam, Fernand Labor, and The Experts. Plates and book fine; box with expert restoration.

        Dark Tower: The Gunslinger

      1984. First Edition . Signed. KING, Stephen. The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger. (West Kingston, Rhode Island): Donald M. Grant, (1982). Octavo, original black cloth, pictorial endpapers, original dust jacket. $4500.First trade edition, issued simultaneously with a signed limited edition, of the first book in King's epic Dark Tower series, boldly inscribed by him on the half title in the year of publication, ""For D— Welcome to the weird west! Stephen King, 7/17/82,"" with five full-page color illustrations, color endpapers and vignettes by acclaimed fantasy artist Michael Whelan, a splendid copy.""The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed."" When King typed those words on an old Underwood in 1970, he began a daring fantasy saga that would be 34 years in the completion. Gunslinger, the first book in his Dark Tower series, is ""an impressive work of mythic magnitude that may turn out to be King's greatest literary achievement"" (Atlanta Journal-Constitution). The novel is ""strange, scary and utterly gripping—the perfect start to an unforgettable journey… In Roland Deschain, the titular Gunslinger, there's a superb, violent, powerful and thoughtful protagonist—Clint Eastwood's Man With No Name by way of Robert Browning's poem, Childe Rolande to the Dark Tower Came"" (Guardian). With illustrations by Whelan, a 14-time Hugo award winner whose art ""stands up to any [the 20th] century has produced"" (Village Voice). ""First Edition"" stated on copyright page. Issued simultaneously with a signed limited edition of 500 copies. Brooks A18. See Fantasy and Horror 6-194. A fine inscribed copy.
