        Birds of New Guinea

      Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton University Press, 1986. 293 Pages Indexed. Handbook No.9 of the Wau Ecology Institute in Papua New Guinea. Dark gray cloth with silver lettering on spine. Used book in As New condition. Interior text pages are flawless. This book is the first definitive ornithological field guide to New Guinea, the world's second largest island and one of the richest tropical environments in the Old World. Because of its isolation, New Guinea's biota includes spectacular radiations of unusual plants and animals of which the birds of paradise are perhaps best known. The region has long attracted naturalists, ecologists, and anthropologists. This book treats all of the more than 700 species of birds recorded from the region, illustrating more than 600 of them in forty-seven fine color plates and eight black-and-white halftone plates. The text contains species accounts treating identification, distribution, ecology, vocalizations, and behavior. This is preceded by a detailed introduction to the region, with sections on climate, biogeography, rain forest ecology, and conservation. A chief contribution of the book is the wealth of information on the habits of many of the region's little-known species. Included is an ornithological gazetteer, along with four maps showing natural features and important ornithological localities. Bruce Beehler is Scientific Assistant to the Secretary Emeritus, Smithsonian Institution, in Washington, D.C. Dale A. Zimmerman is Professor of Biology at Western New Mexico University. Thane K. Pratt is a wildlife biologist with the Division of Fish and Wildlife, Commonwealth Northern Marianas. . Fourth Printing. Hard Back. As New/Near Fine. Illus. by Zimmerman, Dale A.; Coe, James. 6 1/2" X 9 1/2".

        ODCZYTANIE POPIOLOW Kriat efer-mikle [= a reading of ashes]

      Gazit, Tel Aviv, Israel 1986 - Hebrew translation pages face the Polish pages. The Hebrew is vowelized. Bibliophilic edition of 625 numbered copies. Jerzy Ficowski (October 4, 1924, Warsaw - May 9, 2006, Warsaw) was a Polish poet, writer and translator (from Yiddish, Russian, Romani and Hungarian). During the German occupation of Poland in World War II, Ficowski who lived in W¿ochy near Warsaw was a member of the Polish resistance. He was a member of the Home Army (Armia Krajowa, AK), was imprisoned in the infamous Pawiak and took part in the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. His codename was Wrak and he fought in Mokotów region. Following the Warsaw Uprising, Ficowski entered a camp with other survivors of the battle. After the war, Ficowski returned to Warsaw and enrolled at the university in order to study philosophy and sociology. There he published his first volume of poetry, O¿owiani ¿o¿nierze (The Tin Soldiers, 1948). This volume reflected the Stalinist atmosphere of the early postwar Poland, in which heroes of the Armia Krajowa Warsaw Uprising were treated with suspicion at best, arrested and executed at worst, together with the sense of a new city arising from the ashes of the old. His early works show the influence of Julian Tuwim. Later he became interested in the poems of the interwar period, with elements of fantasy and grotesque. In the later period his poems reflected various moral and social aspects of life in the People's Republic of Poland. From 1948 to 1950 Ficowski chose to travel with Polish Gypsies and came to write several volumes on or inspired by the Roma way of life, including Amulety i defilacje (Amulets and Definitions, 1960) and Cyganie na polskich drogach (Gypsies on the Polish Roads, 1965). He was the member of the Gypsy Lore Society and translated the poems of Bronis¿awa Wajs (Papusza). He was interested in many aspects of international poetry. He translated the poems of the Spanish poet, Federico García Lorca, and he was also a known specialist of Jewish folklore and Modern Hebrew poetry, becoming an editor of the Jewish poem anthology Rodzynki z migda¿ami (Raisins with Almonds, 1964). Ficowski devoted many years of his life to the study of the life and works of Bruno Schulz, and in 1967 published the first edition of what is considered the definitive biography of him, entitled Regions of the Great Heresy. He received the award of the Polish Pen Club in 1977. His 1979 collection of poems, A Reading of Ashes, has been called the most moving account of the Holocaust written by a non-Jew. As a consequence of his signing, in 1975, of the letter of 59, practically all of Ficowski's writings had become banned in Poland for the remainder of the decade, and only the emergence of Solidarity in the early 1980s has brought his works back to Poland's bookshelves. Both his prose and poems continued to be widely translated in the West. He was active in the opposition movement, and was a member of the Workers' Defence Committee (Komitet Obrony Robotników, KOR) and subsequently of the Committee for Social Self-defence KOR. Under the communist regime he had urged his fellow writers to voice their concerns over censorship and the suppression of workers. His most public statement was a letter to the Writers Union in which he said, "I do not believe deeply in the immediate effectiveness of letters to the government, but even less do I believe in the effectiveness of silence." Following the fall of communism, liberalisation of Poland and its breaking with the Soviet bloc, Ficowski continued to write and translate works from languages as diverse as Spanish and Romanian, not to mention the Yiddish and Roma languages that had always fascinated him.

        Predator [Hunter] (Original screenplay for the 1987 film)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1986. Revised draft script for the 1987 film "Predator," here under the working title, "Hunter." Small stray notation in holograph ink on one page. One of the better thrillers of the late 1980s, memorable in the pantheon of alien films, and easily a highspot of Arno's career. Dutch (Schwarzenegger) and his team of muscle-bound fearless commandos take to the Central American jungle to rescue hostages. Their mission is successful, but during their return they discover something else in the jungle: a camouflaged killer with a trove of human skull trophies. One-by-one the Predator (as only the audience knows it) tracks Dutch and the commandos, leaving entrails for the remainders to contemplate, with a final atomic showdown. Shot on location in Mexico. Nominated for an Academy Award, and winner of a Saturn Award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, USA. Basis for "Predator 2" (1990), "Alien vs. Predator " (2004), "Aliens vs. Predator "Requiem" (2007), and "Predators" (2010). Green titled wrappers, dated April 7, 1986, with a credit for actor Schwarzenegger. Four title pages present, each noting various revisions, dated April 7, 1986, with credits for screenwriters Thomas and Thomas. 106 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 102. Mechanically reproduced on eye-rest green stock, with blue, pink, yellow and green revision pages throughout, dated variously between 4/17/86 and 5/20/86. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus, bound with two gold brads. Lentz, p. 1427.

        Batavia

      1986. First Edition . Signed. GARDNER, Joel and CARVER, Raymond. Batavia. Lunenburg, VT: Meriden-Stinehour Press, (1986). Large oblong folio (17 by 21 inches), eight black-and-white photographic prints (8 by 12 inches), matted, title/limitation leaf and essay leaf, together as issued in original gray cloth clamshell box. $3200.Signed limited first and only edition of this collection of eight photographs by the son of author John Gardner, signed by photographer Joel Gardner and by Raymond Carver, GardnerÂ’s renowned protégé, who contributed an introductory essay.Each print is numbered, dated and signed in pencil by Gardner. Carver writes in his appreciative essay on Joel GardnerÂ’s work: “I was nineteen years old, just a kid, when I met the photographerÂ’s father and enrolled in his creative writing class. Nothing, and I mean this, has been the same for me since that time. He set an example of a writer at work, working cnotinually, and at the highest pitch always. Judging from these photographs, his son, Joel, has learned more than a little from the high standards his father set for himself and expected of others as well. I wish—how I wish!—the father of the child could be alive to celebrate the appearance of these photographs. John Gardner has been gone from us for a while, nearly four years now, but his spirit lives on through his work and in the person of his artist-photographer son, Joel.” Carver has been described as “one of the masters of American proseÂ… CarverÂ’s language was unmistakably like HemingwayÂ’s—the simplicity and clarity, the repetitions, the nearly conversational rhythms, the precision of physical description” (New York Times). Photographic print of Gardner mounted to title leaf. This is number 9 of 50 numbered copies; an additional 10 lettered copies were also issued for a total edition of 60. Faint spotting to box. Prints and signatures fine. Scarce.

        Regards Arthur Rimbaud

      1986. PIGNON-ERNEST, Ernest. Regards Arthur Rimbaud. (Paris): Hubert Bouelle et Alin Avila, (1986). Five large original lithographs, measuring 14-1/2 by 18 inches. Housed in original window clamshell portfolio. $4200.Exceptional signed limited edition of this artistic homage to Rimbaud, number 138 of only 200 copies (of 25 total sets), consisting of five original lithographic portraits of Rimbaud, one signed and numbered in pencil by Ernest, with tissue guards printed with five of Rimbaud’s poems.These five original Pignon-Ernest lithographs are variations on his own trompe l’oeil “Rimbaud à Paris” (1978), through which he tried to capture the “face and character” of the 19th-century French poet. Pignon-Ernest is known for his beautiful life-sized trompe l’oeil drawings of human figures, which he affixes to the sides of buildings and leaves to weather. “He has been doing performance and installation work on and around city walls for thirty years, [transferring] paintings, drawings, and serigraphs onto buildings and telephone booths… Pignon-Ernest disdains art created for exhibitions and museums, and describes his work as a way to capture the essence of a place… These images become part of the urban architecture, accepted by the population, and protected against deterioration” (PicassoMio). Regards is accompanied by a brief essay on Pignon-Ernest by Alin Avila. Prints fine. Light soiling to original portfolio. A wonderful work of art in fine condition.
