Inscribed by Mapplethorpe to his Patron and Partner, Sam Wagstaff Inscribed by Mapplethorpe to his patron and life partner, Sam Wagstaff on their shared birthday, November 4, 1986: "For Sam - on our birthday ..." To quote from the Brooklyn Museum's exhibition catalogue, where these images were displayed: "The eight images in this livre d'artiste do not so much illustrate Rimbaud's poem as they evoke the mystical, nocturnal melancholy that characterizes the work. Mapplethorpe's images provoke an emotionally layered response in harmony with the text."

Im Brockhaus-Verlagsprospekt heißt es zu dieser Ausgabe: "Einbandmaterial ist das besonders strapazierfähige, weitgehend naturbelassene Volleder schottischer Hochlandschafe jeder Band dieser Luxusausgabe ist handgebunden und damit ein in unserer Zeit selten gewordener Beweis echter Handwerkskunst." Der Anschaffungspreis dieser seinerzeit nur in wenigen Exemplaren herausgegebenen Luxus-Ausgabe lag seinerzeit bei DM 12.000 (umgerechnet auf heutige Preise: DM 15.000).

        While in quarantine for her upcoming mission as the first teacher-in-space, after the fourth postponement, Christa McAuliffe orders Challenger souvenirs very shortly before her ill-fated mission ? one of only two known checks, this is the finer

      Partly Printed Check Signed ?S. Christa McAuliffe,? 6? x 2.75?. [Kennedy Space Center, Florida], January 25, 1986. Drawn on the First City Bank of Clear Lake, Houston Texas, made payable by McAuliffe to ?Cape Kennedy Medals? for ?One hundred & thirty four 50/100? Dollars. Never cashed. Mint condition.Cape Kennedy Medals was a Cocoa Beach, Florida, company that manufactured mission patches, medallions, pins, and other related souvenirs and memorabilia for shuttle crews. Christa McAuliffe is ordering Challenger 51L souvenirs for her upcoming mission (including ?Teacher-in-Space? items) while in quarantine at crew quarters before her flight.The launch of STS-51L Challenger was originally scheduled for January 22, 1986, but was rescheduled for January 23rd then January 24th due to delays associated with STS-61C Columbia which had landed on January 18th after four landing attempts. The launch was reset for Saturday, January 25, 1986, the day McAuliffe signed this check, because of bad weather at the trans-Atlantic abort site at Dakar, Senegal. To utilize Casablanca, Morocco, which was not equipped for night landings, a decision was made to change Challenger's launch time from afternoon to morning. But a January 25th launch was not possible because the launch support team was unable to meet the new launch time.The launch was then rescheduled for January 27, 1986 due to the forecast of unacceptable launch weather on January 26, 1986. Challenger's crew boarded the Shuttle for the first actual launch attempt on January 27, 1986. However, following astronaut entry, a ground service equipment hatch closing fixture could not be removed from the hatch. The fixture was sawed off and an attaching bolt was drilled out before the closeout operation was completed. During this lengthy delay, crosswinds at the Shuttle's emergency landing runway at the Kennedy Space Center rose to unacceptable high limits, and the launch was once again rescheduled to January 28, 1986.STS-51L Challenger was launched on January 28, 1986 at 11:38 A.M. EST. An explosion 73 seconds after launch resulted in the loss of Challenger and crew.

        I Am the Only Running Footman

      London - Michael O'Mara Books Ltd, 1986 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A bright, clean first UK edition of I Am the Only Running Footman by Martha Grimes. Bound in paper-covered boards with gilt lettering and an unclipped dustwrapper. First UK Edition. Martha Grimes, b. 1931, is an American author of detective fiction. Grimes earned her B. A. and M. A. at the University of Maryland. She has taught at the University of Iowa, Frostburg State University, and Montgomery College. Grimes is best known for her series of novels featuring Richard Jury, an inspector with Scotland Yard, and his friend Melrose Plant, a British aristocrat who has given up his titles. Each of the Jury mysteries is named after a pub. In 1983, Grimes received the Nero Award for best mystery of the year for The Anodyne Necklace. In a rainy ditch in a Devon wood, a hitchhiker is found dead. Almost a year later, on another rainy night, another murder; this time, however, the victim is found just outside a pub called I Am the Only Running Footman, near Berkeley Square in London's fashionable Mayfair District. Devon policeman Brian Macalvie is convinced that the two murders are connected. And thus, in his eighth case, Richard Jury is drawn into the so-called Porphyria killings. A particularly elusive pair of murders. From the streets of London to the village of Somers Abbas, Jury and Macalvie are joined by the stolid if hypochondriac Sergeant Wiggins and the reluctant Melrose Plant. They meet in another pub, the Mortal Man, and, amidst the clatter and cry of the Warboys family, they ponder a labyrinthine set of clues. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is almost no wear to the extremities. There is almost no wear to the dustwrapper. Internally the pages are clean and bright. Overall the condition is fine, with a fine dustwrapper..

        TERMINAL STATUS

      [Np: Privately Printed by the Author, nd. but ca. 1986].. [8],176 leaves. Quarto. Photographically reproduced typescript, printed on rectos only. Title- page and two sectional-titles printed at The Tragara Press. Black cloth, lettered in gilt. Fine. One of four copies, privately printed, of George Sims's otherwise unpublished novel, TERMINAL STATUS, a political dystopia set in the year 2055, in a world devastated by nuclear and biological warfare. Inscribed, signed and dated on a preliminary leaf by the author to Alan Anderson of The Tragara Press : "Number two of four copies. For Alan from his friends George and Beryl 10.x.86," and with Anderson's booklabel. There are a few scattered original manuscript corrections in the text. Sims inscribed another copy (#3): "The germinal idea for this book came to me on a coach trip from Alpbach to Munich (in 1975)...Unpublished and probably unpublishable (because of the unforeseen collapse of Communism). I sent a typescript of the book to Graham Greene who liked the book but thought I made the 'Glossary' too long and too complicated. Plenty of action and some excitement, with an attractive heroine and a very nasty villain." HALLIWELL, p.138.

The station aired a symposium with RUN-D.M.C. in which they invited callers to discuss gang violence and drugs in L.A. Gangs were urged to cease violence on the date, a peace which was for the most part observed. This publication features a collage of reproductions of clippings and news coverage of the event, as well as functions as a promotional piece for the station, highlighting several of their social programs and role in the community. A scarce and very uncommon document of hip hop in L.A. OCLC locates no copies. .

        The Immortal 2.9 - Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 A & B

      1986 - The exotic Alfa Romeo 2.9 of which fewer than 40 chassis's were built before the war put a stop to things, boasted the kind of position in late 1930s motoring as the Bugatti Veyron has in the early 21st century. It was the ultimate high speed, high-quality road car of it's day. Author Simon Moore is the acknowledged expert on the 8C (and subsequently produced an equally lavish sequel to this book on the smaller and more numerous 2.3 ) The 2.9 book is large format tome of 251 pages packed with wonderful technical historic and period racing photos, covering the cars chassis by chassis,This book has clearly been read and re-read (and enjoyed) by it's previous owner so has some thumb-marking and along the opening edged of the pages and is certainly not immaculate or 'mint' and the jacket has some wear around the edges and corners, but the price reflects this as this title has become vastly collectible and it's value has risen steeply since publication in 1986.

        Postcard to Roy Kerridge.

      1986 - Postcard 14 x 11 cm, red ink on cream card with design of dove of peace to front, manuscript message with musical notation signed by Pete Seeger to reverse with US 22 cent stamp, sent from his home in Beacon, NY; horizontal creases across card, very good. This is a fascinating postcard from Pete Seeger (b. 1919), the singer and song-writer whose work in the post-war period made him a senior and pivotal figure in the folk revival of the 1960s. He wrote protest songs such as "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" and "If I Had A Hammer" that were of central importance to the burgeoning folk and underground movements and which were inspirational to the young Bob Dylan, of whom Seeger was an early supporter. The Byrds were heavily indebted to him, including famous versions of his songs "Turn, Turn, Turn" and "The Bells of Rhymney" alongside several Dylan numbers on their first album. A card-carrying communist in his youth, he was blacklisted by US television for many years and continues to record politically-charged music together with his beloved traditional folksongs to this day. This little message to the British writer Roy Kerridge reveals Seeger the musicologist, tracing the origins of the song "Kumbaya" back to the South Carolina gospel song "Come by here" , with the observation, which once made seems so obvious that one wonders why one had never noticed it before, that it uses the melody of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star". Kerridge is a man thoroughly in tune with Seeger's beliefs. In his 2011 autobiographical novel Stalin's Schoolboy, Kerridge, who was brought up by Marxist parents, puts this definition of communism into the mouth of his 11 year old self: "‘It means that you like Russia more than England, you don’t like God and Empire, but you do like folk tales and folksongs. You like primitive people better than white people, so you stick up for the Indians, not Cowboys'". [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Quartet: Essays by Lewis ThomasEtchings by Joseph Goldyne

      San Francisco and Berkeley :: Pacific Editions and the Arif Press,, 1986.. Edition of 130. 8.25 x 12 x 1.25". Text handset in 16-point Bembo and Centaur types. Letterpress printed. Handmade paper by Twinrocker. Color etchings by Goldyne. Laid in drop leaf box . Additional etching in folder. Signed on the colophon by artist and author. Britannica Online Encyclopedia: "Lewis Thomas, (born Nov. 25, 1913, Flushing, NY., US—died Dec. 3, 1993, New York, N.Y.), American physician, researcher, author, and teacher best known for his essays, which contain lucid meditations and reflections on a wide range of topics in biology. "Lewis attended Princeton University, Princeton, N.J., and Harvard Medical School (M.D., 1937). He served in the U.S. Navy Medical Corps and taught at Johns Hopkins and Tulane universities and at the University of Minnesota Medical School. In 1954 he moved to New York University School of Medicine, which he left as dean in 1969 to teach in the pathology department at Yale University. From 1973 to 1983 he was president of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center." "The Quartet" is a reprint of four essays by physician, researcher, and author Lewis Thomas, whose lucid essays on biology appeared in "The Lives of a Cell," "The Medusa and the Snail," and "Late Night Thoughts on Listening to Mahler's Ninth Symphony." "The Tucson Zoo": "We are endowed with genes which code out our reaction to beavers and otters, maybe our reaction to each other as well. We are stamped with stereotyped, unalterable patterns of response, ready to be released." "Probability and Possibility": "We are alive against the stupendous odds of genetics, infinitely outnumbered by all the alternates who might, except for luck, be in our places. Even more astounding is our statistical improbability in physical terms. The normal, predictable state of matter throughout the universe is randomness, a relaxed sort of equilibrium, with atoms and their particles scattered around in an amorphous muddle. We, in brilliant contrast, are completely organized structures, squirming with information at every covalent bond. " "Death in the Open": "In our way, we conform as best we can to the rest of nature. The obituary pages tell us of the news that we are dying away, while the birth announcements, in finer print, off at the side of the page, inform us of our replacements, but we get no grasp from this of the enormity of the scale. There are 3 billion of us on the earth, and all 3 billion must be dead, on a schedule, with this lifetime. The vast mortality, involving something over 50 million of us each year, takes place in relative secrecy. We will need to learn more about the cycling of life in the rest of the system, and about our connection to the process. Everything that comes alive seems to be in trade for something that dies, cell for cell. There might be some comfort in the recognition of synchrony, in the information that we all go down together, in the best of company." "On Matters of Doubt": "What we have been learning in our time is that we really do not understand this place or how it works, and we comprehend ourselves least of all. And the more we learn, the more we are ?- or ought to be ?- dumbfounded.
