        The Plant: Part Three (First Galley)

      Philtrum Press 1985 - Bangor, Maine: Philtrum Press (1985). The Plant: Part Three by Stephen King. Unbound sheets. pp. 32 + 1. Rare "First Galley" Of Part Three. Only Extant First Galley Copy Annotated by Michael Alpert (Designer). Page Condition: Fine. 7.5" x 25". 32 pages plus extra marked-up colophon page by Designer to Stinehour Press. HISTORY ¿The Plant¿ was published privately by Philtrum Press starting in November 1982 and was created as an epistolary novel ¿in-progress to be distributed among friends of the King family as a Christmas greeting, in lieu of a more traditional card. They were never offered for sale to the general public. Part One was sent out in December 1982, Part Two the following year and Part Three in 1985, with ¿The Eyes of the Dragon¿ (another Philtrum Press production) substituted in 1984. While originally intended to be a longer piece, it was ended prematurely due to the fact that Steve thought it was too much like the film Little Shop of Horrors, which premiered in 1986. GALLEY PROOF For each of the three years, Michael Alpert (designer) was responsible for printing 226 copies (200 numbered and 26 lettered) that were to be signed by Steve. In the course of completing the required copies, Stinehour Press would send Michael "Galleys" that he would mark up with corrections/changes that were necessary to meet Steve's intended vision for the project. After the Galleys were complete, Stinehour would print "Proofs" on the Italian Fabriano Ingres paper so that Michael and Steve could see how the finished book will look. When the Proofs were approved, the print run would commence. The Galleys were the first pass on this project, and the First Galley would separate all the necessary fonts that the book utilized, with the correct line spacing. This particular Galley offered here is said First Run. The colophon page shows the necessary corrections that Michael stipulated that Stinehour incorporate on the Second Galley, including adding necessary fonts, removing the sentence that said that Michael Alpert would be hand-sewing the books in Bangor, Maine since Part Three was bound with glue, unlike Part One and Two. Furthermore, since neither Part One or Part Two had a spine that could accommodate the title, author and publisher information, Part Three was the first time that Michael had to choose the spacing and location of said details. He makes a note to switch the location of "The Plant" and "Stephen King". Very rare, this is the only known First Galley copy in existence. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Przeciw z?u, przeciw przemocy. Wystawa dedykowana pamieci Ks. Jerzego Popieluszki. [Against evil, against violence. An Exhibition to Commemorate the Memory of Fr. Jerzy Popie?uszko.]

      [Poland] 1985 - Original collage. Printed and mounted on newspaper. ca. 425 × 300 mm. Get-Stankiewicz collage, with the title of the 1985 collective exhibition dedicated to the memory of Jerzy Popie?uszko, the priest murdered by the Polish secret police. Printed on the first page of "Trybuna Ludu" the communist daily newspaper of Poland. Eugeniusz Get-Stankiewicz (b. 1942) is a Polish graphic artist and sculptor. During the 1980s he was associated with the Solidarno?ci (Solidarity) and created poster- and other designs for the movement. The Roman Catholic priest Jerzy Popie?uszko (1947-1984) was also linked to the oppositional Solidarity and in his sermons, he agitated against the Communist politics and motivated the people to protest. The security service of the communist state tried to silence him in many ways unsuccessfully, and eventually, they set up a car accident to kill him. Get-Stankiewicz created this piece, to commemorate the memory of Popie?uszko, the red figure carrying the cross in the white background, emerging from the red soil or banner, the two colors and the composition is an allusion to the Polish flag. The paper yellowed due to aging. Chipped, probably while cut by the artist. The mounted print is in fine condition. Overall in very good condition. Original collage. Printed and mounted on newspaper.

      Nartum, alle aus dem Jahr 1985 - 4to u. 8vo. 5 pp. An Helmut von Dreising, der ihn zu einer privaten Lesung in sein Haus eingeladen hatte: „[ ]Wichtig wäre für mich, daß auch ,Leser’ kommen, nicht nur ,Kucker’. Nicht sehr angenehm ist es, wenn man hinterher angesprochen wird: ,Ich habe leider nur Ihre Filme gesehen [ ] Diese Filme sind ja gar nicht von mir. Und dann wäre es natürlich auch schön, wenn es mindestens 20 bis 30 Leute sind, sonst hat man so ein leeres Gefühl, als ob es sich nicht gelohnt hätte. Ansonsten ist zu sagen, daß ich diese privaten Lesungen sehr gerne mache, da kann man so schön Texte ausprobieren, die noch in Arbeit sind. [ ]" (Brief vom 11.6.1985) - „Ich würde gerne wieder etwas aus meinem in Arbeit befindlichen Roman ,Hundstage’ lesen. Aus dem habe ich damals bei Herrn Guratsch gelesen. Ich würde dann eine andere Passage lesen [ ]" (Brief vom 3.9.1985) - „Neugierig, wie ich bin, habe ich natürlich Ihr kleines Päckchen geöffnet und die wundervolle Münze gefunden, über die ich mich sehr gefreut habe! Wie aufmerksam von Ihnen, ich sammle so was in der Tat! Erst vorgestern habe ich meine Lesetour beendet, ich bin derartig erledigt, daß ich nur so vor mich hindämmere. Da hat mich das Funkeln des Silber-Thalers denn doch aufgeschreckt [ ]" - Bei der Münze handelt es sich um eine Münze aus Rostock, die er von der Familie Dreising aus Dank geschenkt bekommen hatte.

        Blood Meridian or the Evening Redness in the West

      Random House, New York 1985 - Coming from the personal library of Ed Abbey is an association copy of Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian"; inscribed by McCarthy to Ed Abbey, "For Ed With all best wishes Your friend Cormac." A very good copy with original dust jacket and red, half cloth binding. Dust jacket has light creasing at top edge, a quarter inch tear at the top of the spine and light toning to inside flaps; boards have light sunning and foxing to top edge, and light wear to bottom, right corner; rear pastedown has three leaves pasted to back board; text block is clean and binding is tight. Research and experience handling McCarthy's works reveals that he rarely inscribed books, this inscribed copy being very rare. Although the relationship between Ed Abbey and Cormac McCarthy is unknown, the inscription shows a level of familiarity, and the association between two of the most influential writers of the 20th and 21st centuries is remarkable. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 337 pp; Signed by Author [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Yoga für alle Lebensstufen - in Bildern - Sivananda-Yoga-Zentrum

      YOGA für alle Lebensstufen - in Bildern Herausgegeben vom Sivananda-Yoga-Zentrum - (Swami Sivananda Saraswati war ein bekannter Yoga-Meister und Lehrer des Vedanta. Swami ist ein hinduistischer Ehrentitel und bedeutet Meister.Wikipedia ) Vorwort : Swami Vishnu Devananda Texte von Lucy Lidell mit Narayani u. Giris Rabinovitch Fotos von Fausto Dorelli Graefe Und Unzer VerlagMünchen - deutsche Erstausgabe 1985 Aus dem Inhalt : Einführung ins YOGA Die Grundstellungen -Die Atmung YOGA-Ernährung Meditation Asanas und Variationen Der Zyklus des Lebens - YOGA und Gesundheit - Anhang 191 Seiten farbig illustrierter Pappeinband gebunden Hardcover - zahlreiche Abbildungen 90 Fotografien und 250 Schritt- für Schritt- Zeichnungen mit Anleitungen Yoga für alle Lebensstufenist der Titel eines Buches, das 1983 erschien und 10 Jahre lang der Yoga Bestseller in Europa war. Yoga für alle Lebensstufen entstand durch die Initiative von Girish Rabinovitch im Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center London. Die bei Yoga Vidya so beliebte YogalehrerinNarayaniist das Hauptmodel für die meisten Fotos. Hier ein Auszug aus dem Buch Yoga für alle Lebensstufen, nämlich zum Lebenszyklus. Gerade die letzten Kapitel des Buches haben diesem Hatha Yoga Bestseller seinen Namen gegeben, und haben gerade im deutschsprachigen Raum dem Yoga Unterricht anKinder, Schwangere und Senioren entscheidende Impulse gegeben. Hier also der Abschnitt über den Zyklus des Lebens aus dem Buch "Yoga für alle Lebensstufen": Die Yoga-Disziplin begleitet uns durch das ganze Leben. Sie ist eine vielseitige und allumfassende Wissenschaft, die sich allen Lebensumständen und Bedingungen anpasst. Vielleicht fühlten Sie sich anfangs zu Yoga hingezogen, weil sie rank und schlank bleiben wollten als dann Veränderungen in Ihrem Leben eintraten, erkannten Sie den Wert der Atemübungen und der Meditation. In diesem Kapitel befassen wir uns mit Asanas und ihrer Anpassung an verschiedene Bedürfnisse des Lebens. Drei Lebensabschnitten schenken wir besondere Aufmerksamkeit: Mutterschaft, Kindheit und Alter. Doch selbst wenn Sie sich gegenwärtig in keinem dieser Stadien befinden, können Sie aus dem hier vorgelegten Material Ideen für Ihr eigenes Vorgehen gewinnen. Die Grundübungen bilden in jedem Fall die Basis für eine Asana-Folge. Die Klarheit des Geistes, die Yoga erzeugt, sowie die körperliche Lebenskraft und Geschmeidigkeit, die es bewirkt, sind für Jung und Alt gleichermaßen wichtig. Kindern bietet Yoga eine Möglichkeit, das ganze Leben gesund zu bleiben. Mit ihrer natürlichen Beweglichkeit und ihrem Sinn für Gleichgewicht gelingen ihnen die Asanas mühelos, so dass die Sitzungen sowohl erfreulich als auch belohnend sind. (YogaWiki)
