      Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press. 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. Signed by the author. Fine in a fine dust jacket. First Edition. Hardcover.

        SUNRISE WITH SEAMONSTERS. TRAVELS & DISCOVERIES. Signed.

      Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston 1985 - Important Presentation & Association Copy. 8vo. 365 pp. First Edition Inscribed By Paul Theroux to Nobel Prize winning Trinidadian author V.S. Naipaul on the front free endpaper, 'For Vidia, To mark twenty years of friendship - if you only knew how your good influence has kept me on the straight and narrow, with love, Paul' and additionally Signed by Theroux on the title-page. Theroux's friendship with Naipaul had spanned decades, Theroux penning, "V.S. Naipaul: An Introduction to His Work", in admiration of his mentor, and to mark their friendship's decline and fall, "Sir Vidia's Shadow: A Friendship Across Five Continents". A near fine copy, (slight bump to the top of the front board), in 1/4 turquoise cloth over grey paper covered boards, black and silver titles to the spine in a bright, fresh pictorial dustwrapper with light overall use. An extraordinary presentation & association copy and now a piece of literary history as the original appearance on the rare book market of three early Theroux titles [Fong and the Indians, Sinning with Annie; and V.S. Naipaul: An Introduction to his Work.] inscribed to Naipaul & his first wife Pat, precipitated a series of explosive exchanges between Theroux & Naipaul that helped dash their 30 plus year friendship into so much literary dust. This was Naipaul's own copy of this collection of essays, and it includes Theroux's excellent portrait of Naipaul which he, Naipaul did not entirely appreciate. Their relations had turned bitter about the time that Theroux discovered that Nadira, Naipaul's new wife had arranged to sell his Theroux books. Notwithstanding the ensuing tumult, the wonderful inscription tells volumes about the relationship of these two accomplished writers who shared so much greatness together. In the end, the pluses will count for much more than their bruised egos. Certainly, the most important copy, ever. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        COTE D'AZUR TRIANGLE.|THE

      New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Co, 1985. cloth of vibrant yellow, with title stamped in blue within a red triangle on front cover, housed in black clamshell box by Charr. Fitzgerald, Vincent & Co.. 12 x 14. cloth of vibrant yellow, with title stamped in blue within a red triangle on front cover, housed in black clamshell box by Charr. Not paginated. Signed, Limited Edition, one of 125 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. Bound by Gerard Charriere. 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 such illustrations as Greek temple caryatids folding out to reveal the Cote d'Azur and paper doll players, Beard's art inexpressibly moves the viewer to realize the inevitable crush of 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.

        Original Pencil Cover Sketch for the Dust Jacket of the Novel Linden Hills

      Pencil on translucent vellum-style artist's paper. Approximately 6.5" x 11.25". Unsigned. A couple of small, faint stains, paper is a bit wrinkled, but else near fine. A rough sketch but essentially very similar to the finished art. Perhaps of most interest are Van Allsburg's penciled notes below the drawing: "I'm not sure just how high 'Linden Hill' should be. I like the great hieght [sic]. It reminds of a Dore engraving for Paradise Lost when the lord tosses Belzebub [sic] down an immense stair that runs from heaven to Hell. It also has some of the absurd sense of scale seen in Piranesi's work." [with] A copy of the first edition of Naylor's novel Linden Hills (New York: Ticknor and Fields 1985) featuring Van Allsburg's finished artwork, fine in fine dustwrapper, Signed by Naylor. Van Allsburg's original work is avidly collected. .
