        O Rio de Janeiro. A photographic journal

      1986 - (196)pp. New-York, Knopf, 1986, in-folio, (196)pp, couverture de l'éditeur illustré de reproductions photgraphiques et imprimée en violet (couverture très légèrement salie), Première édition de cet imposant journal photographique de B. Weber qui compte 130 planches dont 122 de reproductions photographiques en pleine page ou sur double page, et 8 de dessins en couleurs de Richard Giglio. Les tirages photos furent réalisés en noir et blanc, en couleurs, ou sur des tons variés (violet, sépia, bleu, rouge et vert). Les clichés ne présentent pas la ville de Rio, ses quartiers et sa population mais les rencontres faites par le photographe américain lors de son séjour dans cette ville : le champion de Jiu Jitsu Rickson Gracie, le surfer et photographe Alberto Serejo, etc. Les personnes photographiées par Weber présentent toujours des physionomies jeunes et athlétiques, des corps musclés et beaux que l’artiste se plait à saisir dans toute leur étendu. Du fait de la répétition de clichés de corps dénudés, l'ouvrage finit par célébrer une certaine esthétique féminine et masculine, et, a fortiori, le plaisir qui lui est intrinsèquement attaché. Parfait état général [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Arab Bulletin

      Gerrards Cross, Bucks: Archive Editions,, 1986. Bulletin of the Arab Bureau in Cairo, 1916-1919. Including indexes for 1916, 1917 and 1918, and the supplementary notes on the Middle East nos. 1-4, 1919-1920. With a new introduction and explanatory notes. 4 volumes, octavo. Original black crushed morocco-effect paper boards, spines lettered and ruled in gilt, top edges gilt, red and gold endbands. Occasional sketch-maps Corners very lightly bumped, an excellent set. Second edition (O'Brien's "first English edition"), trade issue. A complete facsimile of the Arab Bureau's secret bulletin, first issued in June 1916 with an initial circulation of 26 copies; this edition, prepared by Cambridge librarian and Arabist Robin Bidwell, the first practicably obtainable, with just one complete run of the original bulletin traced in commerce (Sotheby's, New York, 1968). The Arab Bureau was established in the spring of 1916 "to co-ordinate Middle East intelligence and to spread propaganda while countering the effects of hostile propaganda, particularly among Muslim troops" (Bidwell, introduction, p. xxiii). Previously there had been no means of co-operation between the Foreign Office, which oversaw operations in Egypt and Western Arabia, the India Office (Mesopotamia and Eastern Arabia), and the War Office (operating in areas where neither organisation had a particular remit). Lawrence served as the first editor of the bulletin and later became a contributor from the field during the Arab Campaign; other contributors included H. St J. Philby, Ronald Storrs, Gertrude Bell, who served as the Bulletin's Mesopotamia correspondent from Basra, and David Hogarth, whose archaeological expeditions provided cover for the creation of a British intelligence network across the Levant. In a retrospective in the hundredth issue of the bulletin (20 August 1918), Hogarth credited Lawrence with the original suggestion that the Arab Bureau publish a regular summary of its intelligence activities, and summarised the aims of the publication as threefold: "Firstly, it aims at giving reasoned, and as far as possibly definitive, summaries of Intelligence, primarily about the Hejaz and the area of the Area of the Arab Revolt Â… and secondarily about the other Arabic-speaking countries Â… Secondly, it aims at giving authoritative appreciations of political situations and questions in the area with which it can deal at first hand. Thirdly it aims at recording, and so preserving, all fresh historical data concerning Arabs and Arab-speaking lands, and, incidentally, rescuing from oblivion any older facts which may help to explain the actual situation: likewise, any data of geographical or other scientific interest, which may be brought to light by our penetration of the Arab countries during the present war". An indispensable resource for the Middle Eastern theatre in the First World War, and containing "the first published records by Lawrence of the Arab campaign" (O'Brien). There was also a deluxe issue of 25 numbered copies.

        ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [FROG & MISS MOUSIE IN PARK]

      - CONOVER,CHRIS. ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [FROG AND MISS MOUSIE IN PARK p. [5]]. Offered here is the full page watercolor used opposite the second page of verse in Conover's Froggie Went A-Courting published by Ferrar Strauss Giroux in 1986. It is the story of a handsome humanized, seafaring frog's wooing of Miss Mousie. An entire world of humanized creatures is created around this traditional song with text retold by Conover. Reviewed by School Library Journal as a 'tour de force.'. This illustration measures 7" wide x 9 1/4", signed. Admiral Frog and Miss Mousie are in a lush manicured garden, gazing at a large statue of Uncle Rat. Two little mice are playing croquet in the background. Charming. Conover has been illustrating children's books since 1974. Her work is noted for rich colors and incredible attention to detail, some of which is executed using a magnifying glass for accuracy. There is plenty to look at but without the overcrowding that hampers so many modern children's books. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Birds (Archive of original title card maquettes for the 1963 film)

      Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1986. Archive of three title card maquettes hand lettered by Harold Adler for the 1963 film. Also included are two fascinating autograph letters, both elaborately designed and executed in a calligraphic style, from Adler to author, illustrator, and editor Fridolf Johnson relating to Adler's work with Hitchcock. Harold Adler was a calligrapher who created hand lettered titles on over 100 films, worked frequently with Alfred Hitchcock, and was a favorite of legendary title sequence designers Saul Bass and Pablo Ferro. In addition to "The Birds" (1963), his credits include "Comanche!" (1956), "The Man with the Golden Arm" (1955), "The Seven Year Itch" (1955), "Carmen Jones" (1954), "Psycho" (1960), "In the Heat of the Night" (1967), and "Justine" (1969). In 2012, an exhibition of Adler's work was organized by noted typographer and design historian Jill Bell at the American Advertising Federation, Kansas City. In the first letter, dated May 16, 1986, Adler describes, after touching on other topics, meeting Hitchcock and then presenting him with layout ideas for the titles. He then goes into detail regarding his answer to a question about the techniques of artist Eric Gill, stating that Hitchcock "was amazed" by this answer, and after that would "request 'to be sure to bring that nice you[ng] man along" (meaning Adler) whenever he had a job for Adler's firm. The second letter, dated June 10th, 1986, focuses almost exclusively on Adler's work on "The Birds," going into some detail regarding both the creative and technical processes of producing hand lettered titles for films. He also describes Hitchcock as "an unusual person to work with. He was a master at what he did, knew what he wanted [and] smoked the finest cigars." He then concludes the letter with some brief remarks on how his approach to title lettering evolved over the course of his career. The letters themselves are works of art, executed in a variety of inks in Adler's detailed penmanship, with Johnson's name on each in particular receiving full calligraphic treatment. Also included are draft title cards for the film, stylistically similar to each other, but much different from the titles used in the finished film. Two of the cards are marked as "camera ready" in holograph colored pencil, with titles executed in white paint on black board. The third card, photo stat on black paper, which accompanied the June 10th letter, has been annotated by Adler on both the recto and verso, explaining the in more detail the technical process of putting the lettering on film. Overall, a significant collection of material illuminating a little explored aspect of film design, with a direct and significant connection to a seminal work by a director known for personally overseeing all aspects of production. Each letter 19 x 24 inches, single leaf, rectos only. May 16th letter folded twice for mailing, June 10th letter folded three times. Two long diagonal creases to the May 16th letter, else both are Fine. Original mailing envelope for the May 16th letter included. "Camera ready" title cards 22 x 14 inches. Lightly rubbed and about Near Fine. Third card 18 x 4 inches. Near Fine.

The bird portraits, arranged alphabetically, consider the more diverse and curious forms that beaks have taken through evolution … Two hundred and thirty-one books were printed by Harold P. McGarth at Cheloniidae Press … during the Fall of 1986. The type was set by Mackenzie-Harris with some handset by Arthur Larson … This book was designed by Alan James Robinson, Arthur Larson, and Suzanne Moore."

        Literary Correspondence

      1986-1987 1986 - A collection of letters from Waters, mostly to his literary agent, Joan Daves, as well as related ancillary materials showing Waters at work in the after-market for his writing, with opportunities for later editions and film versions. Waters wrote primarily about the American Southwest, in particular the Native American experience. His father was part Cheyenne. The first typed letter signed is from Waters to his agent, Joan Daves, dated August 24, 1986 and concerns Lesley Ann Warren's interest in optioning the film rights to The Woman at Otowi Crossing and the contract for publication of a hardcover, illustrated edition of The Man Who Killed the Deer. It is stapled to a copy of the contract, with numerous marginal corrections and a retained copy of Daves' reply, agreeing with Waters that the intended publisher (Gibbs Smith) had overreached in the contract. An included exchange between Daves and Gibbs Smith posits a simpler agreement, while a retained carbon shows Daves reaching out to Ohio University Press to confirm they had no claim to hardcover rights. The second typed letter signed is from Waters to Keith Sabin, in Daves' absence, and is dated September 29, 1986 and describes the purchasing history of Flight from Fiesta and the current unwelcome "blitz" he, Waters, is undergoing from Ritz Productions regarding theatrical rights. Waters encloses an initialed copy of the letter he wrote to Ritz Productions redirecting their overtures to Daves upon her return from Europe. Both of these letters are stapled together with retained copies of both Sabin's and Daves' replies, as well as a retained copy of an earlier letter from Sabin to Waters saying they had been approached by Ritz and the initial contact letter from Ritz with an unsigned agreement for Right of First Refusal. Also included is a letter from Fiesta publisher Clark Kimball to Daves recommending the production company. The fourth typed letter signed, from Waters to Daves, dated April 29, 1987, again describes the publishing history of Flight from Fiesta and informs Daves that the publisher, Clark Kimball, has been approached by CBS-Columbia regarding film rights, and he includes Kimball's letter. Attached are the retained copies of letters from Daves to both Waters and Kimball, admonishing all that Kimball has no role in film rights for the title, and a later letter from Kimball acquiesces. The fifth typed letter signed, from Waters to Daves (August 3, 1987), delineates an additional inquiry regarding a film option for Flight from Fiesta and several leads on optioning The Woman at Otowi Crossing should Lesley Ann Warren's option expire. Waters takes Daves to task for not responding to offers already presented, for not keeping him informed, and for being about to depart for Europe leaving him without representation: "I don't like to end our agent-client relationship after so many years, but if the overload of work at this crucial time is too much for you, I don't see any alternative." A copy of a letter to Waters at about this point from Alton Walpole shows one of the interested parties facing obstacles bringing Otowi Crossing to the screen. Also, a letter to Daves from The University of Nevada thanks Daves for sending financials on Ohio University Press's Frank Waters: A Retrospective Anthology (included), but bemoans how infrequent the agent's communiques have become. However, the Daves-Waters agent-client relationship was ongoing in October: in the sixth typed letter signed in this archive, Waters informs Daves of yet another inquiry for Flight from Fiesta and asks her advice about payment on an opportunity he has to write the text for a book of photographs to be published by Arizona Highways (likely Eternal Desert, published in 1990). As mentioned, many of the letters are stapled; most are folded for mailing; in some instances they bear the agency's routing marks or highlighting. The lot as a whole is near fine.
