        Octavo: Journal of Typography 1–8

      London: Eight Five Zero, 1986. First printing. Complete run; issues 1?-7 saddle-stapled into printed card wrappers with wraparound glassine dust-jackets; final issue on CD-ROM. All issues in mint condition, still sealed in publisher's original packaging. Edition of 3000 copies. Simon Johnston and Mark Holt founded 8vo studio in 1984, and were soon joined by Hamish Muir (see Johnston's eponymous web site). In 1986 they launched the influential journal Octavo for a planned run of eight issues. As the editorial in the first issue states: "Octavo has evolved from a desire to see an independent publication which acts as a serious forum for the discussion of matters, both contemporary and historical, relating to typographic design. In its eight issues the journal will focus primarily on typography within graphic design, but will also investigate the way in which letterforms are used in the visual arts, poetry, architecture and the environment, as well as looking at broader matters such as design education." Uncommon, particularly so in a complete run.

        Roger's Version

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1986. First. First trade edition. Fine in a fine example of the rare trial dustwrapper, as well as a somewhat spine-faded, near fine example of the trade dustwrapper. The trial dustwrapper is on a darker, coarse speckled gray paper, has some slightly variant text imposition, and does not credit George Disario for the rear panel photograph. We do not know if this omission, or the texture of the paper itself caused this design to be rejected. We are aware of only one other example of this trial dustwrapper. .

Mapplethorpe's images provoke an emotionally layered response in harmony with the text."

        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.
