        Bob Dylan: Lyrics, 1962-1985- Includes All of Writings and Drawings.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1985. First edition. Quarto, original glossy illustrated boards. Signed by Bob Dylan on the front free endpaper. This example was signed at the publisher's office for gifts to represenatives of Knopf. It is estimated that only a handful were signed. In fine condition. Dylan's lyrics have incorporated various political, social, philosophical, and literary influences. They defied existing pop music conventions and appealed to the burgeoning counterculture. Initially inspired by the performances of Little Richard, and the songwriting of Woody Guthrie, Robert Johnson, and Hank Williams, Dylan has amplified and personalized musical genres. His recording career, spanning 50 years, has explored the traditions in American song--from folk, blues, and country to gospel, rock and roll, and rockabilly to English, Scottish, and Irish folk music, embracing even jazz and the Great American Songbook. Dylan performs with guitar, keyboards, and harmonica. Backed by a changing line-up of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s on what has been dubbed the Never Ending Tour. His accomplishments as a recording artist and performer have been central to his career, but songwriting is considered his greatest contribution. Dylan has sold more than 100 million records, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. He has also received numerous awards including eleven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award. Dylan has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Minnesota Music Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and Songwriters Hall of Fame. The Pulitzer Prize jury in 2008 awarded him a special citation for "his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power." In May 2012, Dylan received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama. In 2016 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature.

        Sharpe's Honour.

      London: Collins, 1985.. First Edition. Octavo, pp. 320. Red cloth with gilt titles to spine, in pictorial dust wrapper designed by Ian Robertson, showing a broken telescope and a citadel on an opposing hill; unclipped. Binding shows well, with no signs of bumping or of wear. Internally clean, with nominal tanning. Dust jacket is bright and presentable, and likewise shows no signs of rubbing or tears. A devious French general attempts to turn the tide of the penninsular war by making peace between the French and the Spanish, leaving Britain isolated. Sharpe, perhaps unsurprisingly, has none of it. Adapted into an episode of the TV series, starring Sean Bean as Sharpe.

        Poster for Warhol/Basquiat Paintings - SIGNED BY BOTH

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Exhibition poster signed by both artists, from the exhibition at Tony Shafrazi Gallery, September/October 1985. Color printed poster depicting Warhol and Basquiat wearing boxing gloves after the photo by Michael Halsband, signed in black by each artist above their portrait. 19 x 12 inches (49 x 31 cm). Folds, a few ink smudges likely from original signing. Nicely and archivally framed in red and yellow. <br><br><br />A very rare dually-signed example of the original exhibition poster from this important gallery show featuring the now-iconic image of Warhol and Basquiat posing as boxers, designed as though advertising a bout. The show displayed the collaborative paintings Warhol and Basquiat worked on from 1984-1985. These works were the culmination of their friendship, one which began awkwardly in the late 70's with the younger artist breathlessly hawking his postcard paintings to his idol. By 1983 through the intercession of Page Powell (Basquiat's lover and Warhol's friend) and Bruno Bischofberger (Warhol's Swiss dealer) the two artists developed a friendship. During this time, Basquiat makes frequent appearances in Warhol's diaries: traveling, exercising, and attending parties together. Eventually, the two began work on the paintings that would constitute the bulk of this exhibition. <br><br><br />It was Bischofberger who arranged for the works to be shown at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery in New York. Shafrazi had once been a graffiti artist himself, achieving his moment of notoriety in 1974 as the man who sprayed the foot-high words Kill Lies All on Picasso's Guernica. But the process was not without conflict. Warhol, whose work ethic was legendary, grew frustrated with Basquiat's erratic appearances and the two worked very little on these paintings at the same time. The show was a financial and critical failure and marked the end of their friendship. <br><br><br />The poster however, remains one of the most poignant and enduring images of the 1980's NY art scene, stylising the artistic partnership into a prize fight, with Warhol and Basquiat standing shoulder to shoulder, wearing boxing gloves and Everlast shorts. <br><br><br />The opening of the exhibition was attended by the poster's consignor and her recollections of the event, including descriptions of the moment both Warhol and Basquiat signed the piece, were documented in the October 1985 issue of the California College of Arts and Crafts newsletter. In the article, the opening is described as packed and that "it was impossible to see the art work, which served more as a backdrop to the theatre of the moment ... the large, mechanically rendered logo-symbology by Warhol was willingly insulted by the wild, gestural hand of Basquiat."

        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.
