        Small Collection of Signed and Inscribed Books and Photographs

      1985 - A collection that includes three Signed and Inscribed books, two Inscribed photographs and an Autograph Note in English Signed. The books (two in wrappers, the third an embossed leatherette hardcover) are generally very good with toning and wear at the extremities; the paperbacks have additional tape repaired spines and one is also dampstained with a few scrapes. The photos are fine in wooden frames and the ANS is about very good with some light toning and tape repairs to all four corners. The books include two written by Castro himself: a 1975 second edition of *Hoy Somos Un Pueblo Entero* [*Today We Are an Entire People*] Signed and dated in the year of publication, and a 1985 first edition of *Esta Tiene Que Ser la Guerra Economica de Todo el Pueblo* [*This Must Be the Economic War of all People*] Inscribed: "Por Nuestra Patria [For Our Country] Fidel Castro." The third book is the 1951 yearbook of the University of Tampa, *Moroccan*, Inscribed on the title page on October 1955 in Spanish. Loosely translated it reads: "Thanks to Imelda and her friends of Tampa for help with our new revolution in Cuba Dr. Fidel Castro." Castro came to Tampa in November, 1955 seeking support for his revolution -- why he was asked to inscribe this yearbook is unknown. A nice collection of rare signed and inscribed material from one of the most polarizing and influential political figures of the 20th Century. In just a few items it manages to encompass his life from popular revolutionary leader and celebrity who visited the U.S. in the 1950s to attract support for his cause, to that of prime minister of the new Cuba, and later the entrenched leader of the embargo Communist nation. Further details available upon request. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        A Hollander Garland

      Newton, IA: Tamazunchale Press, 1985. 34pp. This collection of eight shaped poems is specially bound by Derek Hood in midnight blue morocco with multiple onlays of various colored leathers forming abstract, geometric patterns outlined in silver tooling. Hood's inspiration for the binding came directly from the textual shapes of the poems. Each is represented on the covers "in whole or part, using lines and simple forms." Some of the shapes are easier to discern than others. Hood writes, "I wanted to create an image from fragments of the poems as not to instantly give away their identity... Similar to the lines Hollander writes about the cracked Etruscan cup made by the potter, I wanted the images to blend into one another as you view them." The midnight blue leather echoes Hollander's imagery of shapes illuminated within darkness. In the top right corner, a moon looks on, "helping to illuminate the image by adding hints of colour to the forms." Hood's onlay design is repeated in inverse on the rear cover, and on both covers the artwork is bordered within a crooked box as a subtle reference to lines in Hollander's poem "Idea: Old Mazda Lamp, 50-100-150W." Inside the covers, the title of the book is silver-tooled in a circular design. The doublures are tan suede, as is the lining of the metal box in which the book is housed. One of the United Kingdom's most acclaimed contemporary fine bookbinders, Derek Hood was named a fellow of Designer Bookbinders and won awards in the organization's 2004 and 2005 annual competitions. Hood honed his craft working for Shepherds, Sangorski & Sutcliffe and Bayntun-Rivière before beginning his own bindery. His works are notable for their creative combination of traditional techniques and modern design. Extremely fine. T.e.g. (2 9/16 by 2 3/8; 65x60mm).

        The Cote d'Azur Triangle. Etchings and lithographs by Mark Beard.

      Vincent FitzGerald & Company, New York 1985 - Signed, Limited Edition, one of 119 copies only on Rives BFK, all signed by the author and artist, hand set in Janson, lithographs and etchings pulled by the Printmaking Workshop of Bob Blackburn. Page size 12 x 14 inches. Bound by Gerard Charriere, in cloth of vibrant yellow, with title stamped in blue within a red triangle on front cover, housed in black clamshell box by Charriere, fine. In this play by Harry Kondoleon, "A woman, her husband, and her husband's lover go up and down the Riviera only to be disappointed by the Riviera. The dullness of the Cote D'Azur reveals to these Americans the dullness and impossibility of love.they tire of one another and pursue sex partners at random until they are attacked and consumed by sea dragons." Mark Beard's brilliant illustrations of these "two dimensional and ironic" characters, in their bathing suits and sunglasses, in saturated primary colors, and his flat presentation, are overwhelming in their impact of the characters' vapidity. With illustrations such as Greek temple caryatids folding out to reveal the Cote d'Azur and paper doll players, Beard's art inexpressibly moves the viewer to the inevitable crush by the dragon of these pitiable self-centered creatures. A brilliant mixture of wit and irony with difficult and innovative printmaking techniques producing prints with highly unusual textures, especially in the final fold out, which has an effect of great richness and mystery. One of the most exciting works from the already renowned livre d'artiste oeuvre of Mark Beard. See an Image. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Louisiana State University Press, Baton Rouge 1985 - A short story collection, one of the author's scarcest trade books, published prior to Burke's success with the award-winning Dave Robicheaux mystery series. There was a simultaneous softcover issue, which is itself moderately uncommon, but the hardcover issue, of which this is one, is legendary in its scarcity. It has been reported that only 500 copies were bound up in cloth, most of which -- coming as they did from a university press publisher not widely distributed in the book trade -- would have been earmarked directly for libraries.

A unique opportunity for the Sendak fan to add more than a signature to their collection. Original Sendak drawings are hugely sought after, but here is one at a reasonable price. Book is in perfect collectable condition, and the unclipped protected jacket has two very tiny tears that are hard to spot.

        Signed Ingmar Bergman Photograph

      The American Scandinavian Fondation, New York 1985 - SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH OF INGMAR BERGMAN. The photograph is a large close-up portrait of the director that was published in the program for "Northern Lights Shine At Lincoln Center" which was a salute in film and live performances honoring seventy-five years of Nordic contributions to the performing arts in America and a salute to The American-Scandinavian Fondation on its 75th anniversary. Part of the evening's festivities was the awarding of the 1st Ingmar Bergman Award given to a fine or performing artist born in Scandinavia. The 1st recipient was Mr. Bergman who is without doubt one of the great artistic masters of the Twentieth Century and one of the great filmmakers of all time. Needless to say signed material by him is indeed rare. The program is loose from the covers, but is in fine condition, and the photograph is also in fine condition.

        The Helga Files [The Record of the Unveiling]

      1985-1987. The publisher's files (Art & Antiques magazine) for the breaking story of "The Helga Pictures," Wyeth's previously secret cache of 245 paintings and drawings, many nude, of his neighbor in Chadds Ford, PA. Included are: • the transcript of the 1985 interview with Wyeth by editor Jeffrey Schaire in which Wyeth first divulged the existence of the unknown work. 24 pages. This interview was for a story on Wyeth that Arts & Antiques ran the year before the Helga story graced their cover. • a second copy of the 1985 transcript, marked and annotated in preparation for extracting the story from the conversation. • a partial handwritten transcription of the 1985 interview, with notes on images to be used, 7 pages. • a photocopy of the press release for the 1985 article, with edits shown. • a printout of the typescript of that first article, "The Unknown Andrew Wyeth." • a printout of the typescript of the 1986 Helga article, entitled "Andrew Wyeth's Secret Paintings." • storyboard-type layout of the text and images to be used in the 1986 article. • two mockups for the layout of the 1986 article, the first draft using the title of the 1985 article and unrelated text, but with the Helga pictures; the second adding the actual title and text. • 11 proof prints and 3 photo positives of Helga images, most stamped as property of Time magazine; with a black and white proof of their cover story, which reported (as did Newsweek) on the revelation of the Helga picture a week after Arts & Antiques broke the story. • the typesetting of what seems to be the publisher's (Wick Allison's) introduction to the Helga piece in the 1986 issue, lightly copyedited. • five pieces of correspondence, 1985-1988, from the photographer on the story, Peter Ralston, to the author, Jeff Schaire. • two snapshots of Andrew Wyeth with Jeffrey Schaire, taken by Susan Gray at the 1987 showing of "The Helga Pictures" at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., along with Schaire's invitation to the preview. • three letters from Mary Adam Landa, curator of the Wyeth Collection in Chadds Ford. • the radio transcript of Helen Hayes's piece on Wyeth (for her syndicated program "The Best Years") from 1985, in which she reported on the first Arts & Antiques article, without mentioning the foreshadowed cache of secret paintings. • two file folders full of the fall-out from the Helga story: fan mail and kudos (and some snarky commentary) from other publications, galleries and individuals; press clippings; arrangements for publicity appearances and a proposal for a video; numerous clippings of cartoons and parodies. ¶ Wyeth had always been controversial: dismissed by critics and beloved by the public. The Helga story revealed the depth of this chasm, as the 1985 report of an unknown body of work by a major American painter was shrugged off by the art establishment, only to sweep the headlines of popular culture a year later, as Helga became ensconced in the public imagination. Later, the art historian John Wilmerding wrote, "Such close attention by a painter to one model over so long a period of time is a remarkable, if not singular, circumstance in the history of American art." The story of the Helga pictures was one of the most compelling and widely reported tales of an American artist since Jackson Pollock made headlines in the 1940s and 50s. This is the unique, original file that broke the story that eventually made the covers of Time and Newsweek magazines. But for some isolated dampstaining, the archive is near fine or better.

        Kuh. Mischtechnik.

      ca. 1985 - 42 x 30 cm, 29 x 21 cm (Blatt aufmontiert), Am Rand min. angeschmutzt, sonst tadell. Auf Blatt monogrammiert. Unten rechts signiert. - Hans Krüsi (1920-1995) Schweizer Maler und ein stadtbekanntes Zürcher Original. Er gilt als wichtiger Vertreter der Art Brut. Krüsi war ein uneheliches Kind der Emma Krüsi und wuchs erst bei Pflegeeltern in Speicher, dann im Waisenhaus der Gemeinde im Appenzellerland auf. Mit einer schlechten Schulbildung und einigen Jahren Arbeit als Knecht und Gärtnergehilfe in verschiedenen Teilen der Schweiz zog er 1947 nach St. Gallen und machte sich Ende 1948 selbständig. Er fuhr frühmorgens von St. Gallen an die Zürcher Bahnhofstrasse und verkaufte Blumen, die er entweder selbst in den Alpen gepflückt oder im Grosshandel gekauft hatte. Die prekären Lebensverhältnisse und seine eher schwächliche Konstitution führten ihn im Herbst 1968 zu einer rund sechsmonatigen Erholungskur auf dem Walenstadtberg.Mit 16 Jahren hatte er zu fotografieren begonnen, 1975 begann er auch zu malen. Er malte vorwiegend auf Packpapier, Karton oder Servietten, den ihm überall und kostenlos verfügbaren Unterlagen. Seine bevorzugten Motive ? allesamt seiner unmittelbaren Lebenswelt entnommen ? waren Tiere, besonders Kühe. Seit Mitte der siebziger Jahre verkaufte Krüsi auf seinem Zürcher Blumenstand auch eigene Zeichnungen und Malereien. Dabei war er so erfolgreich, dass er bald mehr Geld mit seinen Bildern als mit seinen Blumen verdiente. Als er im September 1995 an einem Lungenemphysem starb, war er ein reicher Mann geworden.

        El amor en los tiempos del Cólera

      Bogota: Editorial Oveja Negra 1985 - First edition, limited issue of 1,000 copies. Signed by García Márquez and additionally stamped and signed by Colombian authorities on the limitation page. Publisher's white cloth, spine lettered in black; in the original white dust jacket, with a steamboat illustration to the front panel in black and yellow, photograph of the author to the rear panel, lettered in white. About near fine, with a hint of wear to the extremities, bright and clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear to the extremities, minor creasing to the spine ends, a few faint hints of minor soiling to the otherwise clean panels, else fine. 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.
