        Blue Water, Yellow Balls

      (Easthampton, MA): Warwick Press, 1987. Quarto. (4)pp., accordion-fold. One of twenty copies signed by Carol Blinn, who wrote, illustrated, and printed this book. A poem by Blinn is accompanied by a watercolor illustration that extends across the central page spread, depicting three yellow balls floating on a cerulean pool surrounded by evergreen trees. The image is an homage to David Hockney, who made a series of paintings of swimming pools using vibrant shades of acrylic paint. The title page is accented with blue and yellow watercolor, and on the page following the poem is a palette of the watercolors that Blinn used in her illustration. Created by Blinn in the summer of 1987, the book is an ode to the season, bringing alive the bright colors, heat, and slower pace. Bound in tan cloth with a watercolor label evoking the undulation of water. Housed in a matching box backed in light green morocco. Laid in is a portfolio of materials describing the artist's process of imagining, writing, and designing the book. These include diagrams depicting ideas for the book's binding and eleven drafts of the text, evolving from prose to poetry, showing the author's changes. A lovely, scarce book produced in a very small limitation.

        In the Street

      Duke University Press, 1987. First edition of the photographer's second major photobook. Large quarto, original cloth. Signed by Helen Levitt on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Not to be confused with the more common paperback edition. Helen Levitt and the author James Agee first collaborated in 1945 on a documentary film set in Harlem, called "In the Street". Psychologist Robert Coles contribited the essays to this volume. Owen Edwards from The New York Times has noted that "[i]n common situations Miss Levitt finds the glint of an often bizarre beauty that most of us-including photographers-do not notice. . . . She brings to her pictures an intensity that can be almost hypnotic." "There is no fundamental difference in the great landscapes and quiet portraits of Edward Weston and the profoundly revealing pictures of children by Helen Levitt. Both are photographic perceptions of the highest order" (Ansel Adams).

      Munich And New York: Schellmann. No Binding. Fine. COLOR SCREENPRINT BY ANDY WARHOL. "This print was commissioned to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the Bavarian Reinsurance Company in 1987. It is based on a photograph of Neuschwanstein Castle, a nineteenth-century palace built by King Ludwig of Bavaria in the foothills of the Alps. Today it is an extremely popular tourist attraction and is the most photographed building in Germany. It has also featured in many aspects of contemporary culture from the cover of British band&#39;s Blur&#39;s &#39;Country House&#39; album to numerous computer games. Warhol&#39;s image combines a screenprinted photograph and hand-drawn lines which were also subsequently screenprinted. Through the colour combination, with the castle dramatically different from the landscape, Warhol creates a collaged effect - a characteristic of his work from the 1980s" (National Galleries of Scotland website). Color screenprint, 1987. Image size: 851x600 mm (33.5x23.63 in). Edition of 1200. With the artist&#39;s ink stamp, lower left. Printed by Rupert Jasen Smith, New York. Published by Schellmann, Munich and New York. See Feldman II.372. A spot of soiling at upper margin. A fine impression.

        Ecodefense: A Field Guide to Monkeywrenching. Second Edition, Revised & Enlarged. Copy Used As Evidence in the 1990 Trial of Margaret "Peg" Millett and Co-Conspirators in the EMETIC Sabotage Case, Inscribed by All

      Tucson: Ned Ludd Books, 1987. Octavo (19.5cm). Original illustrated wrappers; 311pp; illustrated with halftones and line illustrations in text. Inscribed to Earth First! activist Margaret "Peg" Millett by co-authors Haywood, Abbey and Foreman on frontispiece, title page, and Disclaimer page respectively; by illustrator Roger Candee at his first contribution. Abbey&#39;s inscription is dated in year of publication; others undated. Light external rubbing; evidence stickers stapled to front and rear wrappers; Very Good.& & This copy of the book was used as official evidence in the 1990 trial of Ms. Millett and fellow Earth First! co-conspirators Mark Davis, Marc Baker, and Ilse Asplund (collectively, the group called itself the "Evan Mecham Eco-Terrorist International Conspiracy," with the acronym EMETIC) for causing more than $50,000 damage to ski lifts at the Arizona Snowbowl near Flagstaff and for later attempting to down power lines near the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant. The defendants pleaded guilty and served varying prison sentences, but the case marked an important turning point for Earth First!, bringing national notoriety to the group and attracting an influx of increasingly militant, anarchist-affiliated members. Eventually, founder David Foreman and a number of other "elder statesmen" of the movement resigned, with Foreman founding the Wildlands Project in 1991. A signal association copy of a major document of the radical environmental movement.

        Norwegian Wood

      Tokyo: Kodansha, 1987. First Japanese editions and true firsts of the author&#39;s most well-known work. Octavo, 2 volumes. Both volumes are fine in fine dust jackets with the rare wrap-around band present. Both volumes are signed by Haruki Murakami in Japanese. Rare, especially signed. Norwegian Wood is a nostalgic story of loss and sexuality. The story&#39;s protagonist and narrator is Toru Watanabe, who looks back on his days as a freshman university student living in Tokyo. Through Toru&#39;s reminiscences we see him develop relationships with two very different women &#151; the beautiful yet emotionally troubled Naoko, and the outgoing, lively Midori. The novel is set in Tokyo during the late 1960s, a time when Japanese students, like those of many other nations, were protesting against the established order. While it serves as the backdrop against which the events of the novel unfold, Murakami (through the eyes of Toru and Midori) portrays the student movement as largely weak-willed and hypocritical. Murakami adapted the first section of the novel from an earlier short story, "Firefly." The story was subsequently included in the collection Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman.
