        The Bonfire of the Vanities

      New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1987. First edition of the author's first novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Lengthily inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to editor David Kent in the year of publication, "To David Kent with thanks for a grand time and much high living in Toronto Tom Wolfe December 4, 1987." Fine in a fine price-clipped dust jacket. A nice association. The Bonfire of the Vanities is a novel, but it is based on the same sort of detailed on-scene reporting as Wolfe's great nonfiction bestsellers, The Right Stuff, Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers, and The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. And it is every bit as eye-opening in its achievements. It is a big, panoramic story of the metropolis-the kind of fiction strangely absent from our literature in the second half of this century-that reinforces Tom Wolfe's reputation as the foremost chronicler of the way we live in America. "A big, bitter, funny, craftily plotted book that grabs you by the lapels and won't let go" (The New York Times Book Review). Basis for the 1990 film adaptation starring Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis and Melanie Griffith.

        Film Flam

      1987. First Edition . Signed. MCMURTRY, Larry. Film Flam. New York: Simon & Schuster, (1987). Octavo, original half black cloth, original dust jacket. $3800.First edition of collected essays on movies and screenwriting by Larry McMurtry, inscribed to Nobel Prize winning author Harold Pinter, “For Harold, This may awaken violent memories, L.M.”“Working in Hollywood,” writes Larry McMurtry, “is like working in a city filled with immensely attractive childrenÂ… Writers are expected to come and stay, even if 98 per cent of the time they spend here is totally wasted, along with tons of money.” In the 21 essays collected here, 17 originally appearing in American Film, and four elsewhere, McMurtry offers his witty, hard-earned wisdom on Hollywood and the role of its “hired pen,” the screenwriter. Author of over 25 books and 7 screenplays, McMurtry shared a 1971 Oscar nomination with director Peter Bogdanovich for their adaptation of McMurtryÂ’s novel, The Last Picture Show. In 1983, both McMurtry and recipient Harold Pinter earned Academy Award attention for their separate works about love and infidelity. Based on McMurtryÂ’s novel, Terms of Endearment won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Screenplay Adaptation for writer/director James L. Brooks, and Harold Pinter was nominated for his adaptation of his original stage play Betrayal.A fine, highly desirable association / presentation copy.

He then chose 101 papers from 50 papermakers and purchased 200 sheets from each. 19 further and even more exotic papers were produced exclusively for the Special Edition. Siegenthaler once remarked that he spent over 100,000 Swiss francs to procure all these papers. The edition sold out quickly.

        Andy Book

      1987. First Edition . Signed. WEBER, Bruce. The Andy Book. (Tokyo: Shotaro Okada, 1987). Quarto, original perfect-bound stiff photographic wrappers. Booklet with Japanese translation laid in. $2800.First edition of Weber’s photo-essay on boxer-model Andy Minsker, inscribed twice by Minsker to part-time manager Michael Morton, once on the front cover, “For Mike ‘Motormouth’ Morton, who will lead me to the World Jr. Lightweight Title! Thanks, Andy M.” and again on an inside blank leaf, “To Mike,… I want to reassure you that you’re not wasting your time or $. You, Ed [Milberger, Andy’s trainer] and I will be a trio that Portland Oregon will never forget…Thanks again, Andy Minsker, ‘Future’ Junior Lightweight World ‘Champeen.”“In 1985, Andy Minsker was at the top of his game. Golden Gloves champion. Amateur Boxing Federation champion. He had flattened both the British Commonwealth and Yugoslav champs with first-round knockouts. The featherweight from Milwaukee had just turned pro. Somewhere along the line, he had also been an underwear model for Calvin Klein and cavorted with supermodels the likes of Christie Brinkley” (Chris Lydgate). Bruce Weber, “arguably the most influential contemporary fashion and celebrity photographer, works in a style combining neoclassic mannerism (Beaton, Horst, Hoyningen-Huene) and naturalistic reportage” (Roth, 254). In keeping with his style, Weber occasionally sought out athletes to model clothing, and had met Minsker during a photo-shoot of Olympic hopefuls at the 1983 Colorado Sports Festival. Because of a misunderstanding, Weber was prevented from photographing the Olympic boxing team at that time. Several years later, Minsker approached Weber, disclosing that he had been told by Olympic officials that “you’d give me a weird haircut and make me wear skimpy see-through clothes… That’s all I needed to hear. I’m on my way.” This engaging 1987 photobook is the result of the young boxer’s pluck. Later the same year, Weber would make a film with Minsker, entitled Broken Noses. The copy here is inscribed twice by Minsker to fast-talking Portland manager Mike “Motormouth” Morton, who was given his nickname by famous promoter Don King. Known as “the busiest professional boxing manager in the Pacific Northwest” (Oregonian), Morton managed Minsker after his falling out with Billy Baxter. When Minsker retired in 1991, he had stepped into the ring 344 times— against the best in the world— but never did capture the Junior Lightweight crown. This is author Katherine Dunn’s copy, with a manila folder of her articles on Minsker, signed by her.A fine inscribed copy, with boxing and literary provenance.

        The Bowu Zhi; An Annotated Translation

      Stockholm, Sweden: Skrifter Utgivna Av Foreningen for Orientaliska Stuoier, 20. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR. Very good blue pictorial trade paperback. Faded cover and spine, slight wear, soiling. 1987, 8vo, [4], 328pp. Abstract tipped in, 2 errata pages tipped in. Notes pages 184-277 Bibliography of Chinese and Japanese titles pages 278-328. "This dissertation has a two-fold purpose. Firstly, it provides an annotated translation of the full text of the Bowu Zhi by Zhang Hua (232-300), an intriguing early mediaeval work that contains passages which throw interesting light on a number of fields in mediaeval Chinese scholarship and the development of traditional Chinese science. As reference to the Bowu Zhi is rendered difficult by the parlous state of the text, a full translation with accompanying textual reconstructions where necessary was unavoidable, to which has been added a brief study of Zhang Hua. The second purpose of this dissertation is to attempt to gain a clearer understanding of the textual authenticity of the various extant editions of the Bowu Zhi, and thus determine whether the Bowu Zhi is a reliable source of mediaeval Chinese scholarship. The Bowu Zhi is widely held to be a refacimento, dating from the Song or even the Ming dynasties, to which later interpolations have been added at an unknown date along with commentaries by two previously unidentified scholars. The author of this dissertation discusses and rejects the refacimento theory, suggesting that one current edition of the Bowu Zhi may be traceable to the early Tang dynasty, and also attempts to identify the authors of the two commentaries. While a full study of the content of the Bowu Zhi must await research on the hundreds of enigmatic quotations from the Bowu Zhi found throughout Chinese literature but not within the pages of current editions, in his conclusion the author of the dissertation briefly points to four inter-related topics which demonstrate the Bowu Zhi's importance in the comprehension of traditional Chinese science." . Very Good. Paperback. First Edition. 1987.

He produced two editions for a total of only 200 copies.

He then chose 101 papers from 50 papermakers and purchased 200 sheets from each. 19 further and even more exotic papers were produced exclusively for the Special Edition. Siegenthaler once remarked that he spent over 100,000 Swiss francs to procure all these papers. The edition sold out quickly.
