        Icelandic River Saga

      Saga, 1985. 838 pages. "Even though the geographic limitations of this work are prescribed by the boundaries of a specific Icelandic settlement, its general scope and extensive background research defy this narrow categorization. The author not only traces the history of the settlement itself, from its beginnings to recent times, he includes a great deal of material of potential interest to those who may have only tenuous links with the Icelandic cultural heritage, at the same time establishing ties between thousands of Icelandic-North Americans and their native Iceland.... The author's disciplined approach has made the writing of this book an arduous task, but at the same time his stringent demands upon himself have enhanced the scholarly merit of his work immeasurably. Virtually unaided, the author has now completed and seen through to publication a more meticulous piece of research than any previously undertaking in the field of Icelandic ethnic history." - Haraldur Bessason, Professor and Head , Department of Icelandic Language and Literature, University of Manitoba. As is common with this title, the binding of this copy is over-matched by the considerable weight of the book, resulting in the binding being relatively loose/tender but still intact. Gift greetings atop front free endpaper. Average wear. A worthy copy of this treasured reference.

        Was soll man da machen: eine Einführung zu dem Roman Dessen Sprache du nicht verstehst

      Frankfurt am Main: Suhrkamp, 1985. First edition. 12mo, 215 pp, printed wraps. With a publisher's advertising pamphlet laid in. With a lengthy inscription from Marianne Fritz at the title page: "für den lieben Herrn Ministerialrat Dr. Hermann Mayer, dem ich nie vergessen werde, wie er sich geschreckt hat damals - nach dem 28. Februar 1985. Damals - nach dem Besuch der Frau Monika Schoeller. Es hat mir so wohl getan, es hat mir so gut getan. o.D. Im Frühjar erschienen, vor ihrem Hauptwerk im Herbst, hier schon mit dem Inhaltsverzeichnis und Register (der beiliegende Verlagsprospekt spricht von einem Personenverzeichnis). Mayer war Leiter der Literatursektion im Wiener Ministerium für Unterricht und Kunst, die Verlegerin Monika Schoeller [von Holtzbrinck) hatte ca. 10 Jahre zuvor den S. Fischer Verlag übernommen. Fritz's third book, published in advance of her Dessen Sprache du Nicht Verstehst, and also includes a listing of all the characters in that novel, as well as a critical introduction to her work by Heinz Schafroth. Inscriptions or contemporary signatures in the trade editions of Fritz's books are rare, perhaps because of her increasing isolation as she began work on The Fortress, of which this is the first installment. Spine with reading creases, and some light traces of soiling to wraps; a very good copy. The laid in advertising brochure with the title underlined in red ink. A copy which appears to have been read, and rather scarce thus.

        Glimpses [One of 15 Copies]

      Northampton: Basement Press. 1985. Of a total edition of 15 numbered copies, this is Copy No. 10, and is signed by Catheryn Yum, the book's designer and printer. Laid into this copy is a photocopy of the original autograph letter from Yum to Carver's publisher, requesting permission to reprint two stories for a project for her typography class. Interestingly, she wrote to McGraw-Hill, publisher of Will You Please Be Quiet, Please?, for permission to use two stories that she did not end up using. At the bottom of the sheet, Carver has written his personal reply to her, which reads, in part: "You have my permission, and gladly, for you to use the above mentioned stories in the manner in which you describe." Yum has appended a note on the same sheet indicating that this was the only response that Carver wrote himself; the permission to use the stories she actually ended up using, which came from a book published by Knopf, came in the form of "your basic form letter from a secretary." Also laid in is a photocopy of a two-page letter she wrote to Carver after the book was finished (apparently enclosing a copy for him), thanking him for his stories and his permission, telling him a bit about herself, and identifying the tipped-in illustration as "a hand drawn lithograph printed on a hand press." Clothbound. A fine copy of one of the scarcest Carver items, with some background information about it. No copy has appeared at auction; OCLC locates only 4 copies in institutional collections. Hardcover. Fine.

        View. Preview Issue. A fashion magazine. Fashion High & Low.

      New York, 1985. Wraps. Fine. A highly scarce prototype dummy of a Village Voice fashion supplement intended to be issued ten times a year but in fact running just five times the following year, with a slight modification of the title to "Vue". By scarcity, we mean there are only two copies currently residing in institutional libraries (the Met, NYU). Folio, 37 by 27.5 cm. 30 pp., plus wraps, with many photos, photo-montages, and the like, and a good amount of color. A photo spread by Nan Goldin is surely a high point of this preview, and with its pregnant women prancing around without a thought to personal vanity, captures the gritty, edgy essence that suffuses this offbeat publication. This was meant to conjure up a counter-culture, rebellious, underground and/or ironic spirit and approach to fashion that started around this time to crop up in the mainstream publications such as "Vogue" but here is the entire game. This is what one might expect of "The Village Voice" as it conjures up its original slant on things. The magazine is as much a comment on fashion and fashion coverage as it is a sales vehicle for fashion, we might add. Other aspects that stand out are the arresting cover, and a spread on dogs and human legs -- looking at the world through canine eyes.

        The World Order - A Study in the Hegemony of Parasitism

      Ezra Pound Institute of Civilization, 1985. Signed by author on dedication page. 217 pages. "...The World Order, in its anxiety to maintain control of every aspect of our lives, has banned passion. As a poor substitute, it gives us drugs and degeneracy. There are many facts in this book which you, the reader, will not wish to accept. I ask you to accept nothing, but to make your own investigations. You may find even more astonishing true facts than I have managed to glean in thirty-five years of intensive and in-depth research." - from Foreword. Chapter titles include: The Rothschilds; Soviet Russia; Franklin Delano Roosevelt; The Business of America; The CIA; The Bechtel Complex; The Foundations; The Rule of the Order. Unread. Slight external wear. A superb copy, signed by possibly America's preeminent conspiracy researcher.

        Les Échanges Malandreux

      Worcester: Metacom Press, 1985. Signed limited first edition, one of 26 lettered copies "not for sale," of Edward Gorey's inspired flip book, in which readers combine characters and captions to create their own "échanges malandreux." The dialogue includes questions such as: "Is he not her second cousin once removed?," "Has anyone looked under the stairs?," and "What is the reason for your intransigence?" Possible rejoinders include: "The mere thought makes me shudder," "I think it will be best to give up the idea," and "We do not have a device for making library paste." The portraits feature a representative cast of Gorey characters: vaguely Edwardian gentlemen and ladies, servants and children, vamps and eccentrics. This copy is one of 26 reserved for the private distribution of the author and publisher, issued simultaneously with five hundred numbered copies. A fine copy of a delightful and unsettling Gorey production. Square booklet, measuring 6.5 by 6.5 inches, original brown pictorial laid paper wrappers, trifold and stitched as issued. Featuring 32 individual full-length portraits, to be mixed and matched with 32 dialogue captions.
