        The Tommyknockers

      New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, (1987). First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. 558 pages. One of the few sci-fi novels by King, which imagines the discovery of an alien spacecraft near a small Maine town. First edition (first printing). Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Small nick to front lower covers. Inscribed by the author to the evolutionary paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould: 'For Steve and Deborah and the boys--Hope you like this, Steve--you'll see you're acknowledged--for The Flamingo's Smile--on the acknowledgement page. Wonderful book, and one that had a real impact on the rewrite. We hope to see you soon-- All the best, Steve King. 12/11/87.' The acknowledgements read, 'I'm also grateful to Stephen Jay Gould. Although he is a Yankees fan and thus not entirely to be trusted, his comment on the possibilities of what I'd call 'dumb evolution' helped shape the redraft of this novel (e.g. The Flamingo's Smile).' In Gould's book, Wonderful Life, he refers to The Tommyknockers as 'fractur[ing] a tradition in science fiction by treating extraterrestrial 'higher intelligences' not as superior in general...but merely as quirky hangers-on...' An extraordinary association copy.

        High Bridge.

      St. Paul: Midnight Paper Sales Press, 1987. Small quarto. (ii), 19, (1)pp. One of 174 numbered copies. Signed by Gaylord Schanilec on the colophon with his chopmark. As a witness to the region from which it originates, this piece documents the lifespan of the High Bridge, which spanned the Mississippi River in St. Paul, Minnesota. Through nine short stories derived from St. Paul newspapers and revised by Clayton Schanilec, the narratives surrounding the late-19th-century construction of the bridge come to life. These stories encapsulate the city's character of the era, giving voice to the impoverished eastern European communities displaced by development, the dangers of underwater construction, and the political and commercial tension underlying the project. Accompanying the stories are ten wood engravings illustrating the High Bridge's demolition in February of 1985. Printed in five to seven colors, these compositions together create a cinemagraphic sequence, offering views of the bridge from a variety of angles and climaxing with a two-page spread of the explosion. Their compositor, Gaylord Schanilec, owns and operates the Midnight Paper Sales Press, and has established himself as a fixture among American book artists. His work, as exemplified here, explores the life and landscape of the upper Mississippi region, with particular attention to historical anecdotes and natural science. Text composition-set in Plantin Monotype at the Out of Sorts Letter Foundry. Bound in full gray-blue cloth over boards with paper labels on front and spine at the Campbell-Logan Bindery. Upper board slightly splayed, else fine.

        Handwritten Manuscript War Baby

      1987. fine. Original handwritten manuscript of the complete lyrics for War Baby. 3 pages, rectos only (the 3rd page with only 2 lines) of 8" X 10" ruled paper, 37 lines (233 words), neatly written in pencil, all in Jagger's own handwriting. Titled at the top, verse and bridge notations to the left. An authentic recording session draft, 1987, for his 2nd solo album Primitive Cool (his 1993 biography was also titled Primitive Cool). The band featured polished supporting performances by Dave Stewart, Vernon Reed, G. E. Smith, and Jeff Beck. Left edge trimmed 1/8" (no loss), 4 staple holes, else fine. I've bought and sold these rock & roll manuscripts for 35 years, and Jagger lyrics are mystifyingly rare (I guess he intentionally keeps them and chases after them).
