Even though this copy is not a first edition, its importance should not be underestimated, for, as the book reached its seventh printing, it was demonstratively clear to the author and the book's publisher that Gary Salt had taken an unknown author's first book and was able to see it made into a major picture. Clancy has gone on to write a number of best sellers, some of which have been made into other major motion pictures. The late Gary Salt was indeed an important agent who is greatly missed by his widow, friends, and clients.

      Rome: Delfino, (1985). Folio. 106pp. According to the colophon, this is one of 1,200 copies. Illustrated with ten color lithographs after drawings by Henry Moore. The editor, Dr. Stanley Wells, notes in the Foreword that this work reveals an "unsuspected spiritual kinship between one of the greatest visual artists of the twentieth century and the enduring genius of Shakespeare," who shared a "mythical quality, shunning literalism," and connected with the collective unconscious in their art. Bound in brick red morocco over thick beveled boards, with a rectangular gilt-metal bas relief by Moore, titled "Hamlet's Dilemma," mounted to the front cover. The book fits into a vertical sculptural stand covered with red suede. Covers lightly sunned along the lines of the stand, else fine. Because only three institutional copies of this monumental work are recorded, and given the paucity of copies in commerce, it is not difficult to conclude that the edition was not completed.

        Icelandic River Saga

      Canada: Saga. Hardcover. 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. . Good. 1985. First Edition.

A beautiful copy. El amor en los tiempos del cólera (Love in the Time of Cholera) focuses on the relationship of three members of a love triangle over the course of time. Based on the author's parents' relationship, the plot is divided into six parts, with two sections each for the three main stages of life: youth, adulthood, and old age. This volume is part of an advanced printing of 1,000 special edition copies signed by Márquez, the proceeds of which were donated to the survivors of the 1985 Armero Tragedy in Colombia. During this catastrophic event, over 20,000 people died in the eruption of the volcano Nevado del Ruiz, including the majority of the population of Armero, a city built on the hardened remains of an earlier eruption. Márquez, a Colombian nationalist and political activist, was living outside of the country at the time of the tragedy, having fled government persecution for his support of a radical military group. Although he did not return when he was invited back in 1982, Márquez never gave up his effort to improve the political climate and quality of life in Colombia.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        1985 Interpolis Chess Touramnet, Tilburg (Score Sheets)

      Interpolis, Tilburg 1985 - 14 (11 3/4" x 8 1/4") original score sheets in Tony Miles's hand. Two of the score sheets were not signed (Dzindzichashvili and Ljubojevic. . The Tilburg chess tournament was a series of very strong chess tournaments held in the Tilburg, The Netherlands. It was established in 1977 and ran continuously through 1994 under the sponsorship of Interpolis, an insurance company. Fontys Hogescholen shortly revived the tournament series from 1996 to 1998, when the last edition was played. Since 1994 there is another annual chess tournament taking place in Tilburg, which has the name De Stukkenjagers, the field is generally much weaker than the traditional Tilburg tournament. The 9th Annual Interpolis Chess Tournament held in Tilburg, the Netherlands in 1985 was a category XV event. The eight participants of the double round robin were (in order of ELO): Jan Timman (2640), Viktor Korchnoi (2630), Robert Huebner (2620), Ljubomir Ljubojevic (2615), Lev Polugaevsky (2600), Oleg Romanishin (2590), Roman Dzindzichashvili (2570), and the previous year's winner, Anthony Miles (2560). This year marked the shift in the Interpolis event at Tilburg from a round robin to a double round robin. It was during the third round game against Romanishin that Miles began to suffer extreme back pain. He was forced to take powerful painkillers and lie flat on a massage table during his games in order to participate in the remaining rounds. However, this didn't stop Miles from winning his second title in a row, sharing it this time with Korchnoi and Huebner. Condition: Some creases where once folded and light edge wear else all in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
