        Schirra's Space

      Quinlan Press, Boston, MA, U.S.A. 1988 - Inscribed " Wally Schirra / 10 Mar 2003" on first blank page in blue ink. Born March 12, 1923, Hackensack, NJ, USA. U.S.astronaut who manned the Mercury Sigma 7 (1962) and was command pilot of Gemini 6 (1965), which made the first rendezvous in space. Schirra began flying at 13 and became a naval aviator after graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD, in 1945. He flew 90 missions in the Korean War. A test pilot, he was one of the original seven astronauts named in 1959. On October 3, 1962, Schirra orbited the Earth six times in Sigma 7. His scheduled flight with Thomas P. Stafford in Gemini 6 was postponed twice because of technical problems. Gemini 6 was finally launched on December 15 , 1965, 11 days after Gemini 7. Schirra successfully rendezvoused with Gemini 7 , maneuvering to within one foot of the craft. Schirra commanded the Apollo 7 flight (Oct. 11-22, 1968), accompanied by Donn Eisele and R. Walter Cunningham, on the first manned Apollo mission. They tested the guidance and control systems and the restarting capability of the rocket engines for future lunar flights. After retiring from the Navy and the space program in 1969, Schirra held executive positions in private firms in Colorado. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        LOS COHETES DURARON TODO EL DIA - SIGNED BY PEDRO MEYER

      Petroleos Mexicanos, Mexico City, MEXICO 1988 - 148pp, profusely illustrated in b&w. Text in Spanish. "Los cohetes duraron todo el dia" is noted Mexican photographer Pedro Meyer's 1988 socially conscious photo essay commissioned by the national petroleum company Pemex to coincide with its fiftieth anniversary. Due however to Meyer's dedication of the volume to Lazaro Cardenas, the socialist-leaning former president who established Pemex in 1938 as part of his nationalization of Mexican oil production (whose son also happened to be an opposition candidate to then-current president Carlos Salinas earlier in the year), the newly elected government seized nearly all the copies printed to put a stop to the book's distribution. A pristine copy of this uncommon and desirable document (cited on pages 198-199 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II") acquired directly from Pedro Meyer BOLDLY SIGNED by the photographer in black ink beneath the frontispiece image on the second preliminary. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        INSCRIBED COPY of What Mad Pursuit and Additional Signed Letter Archive

      Basic Books, Inc, New York 1988 - First Edition. An archive of material containing several signed letters from Crick to Meyer Friedman of the Meyer Friedman Institute as well as an inscribed copy of Crick's book, What Mad Pursuit. Francis Crick presented Friedman with an inscribed copy of his book What Mad Pursuit in October 1988. Friedman sent Crick a check for the book, which Crick signed (a note from Friedman to that effect is included in the archive). Several years later, Friedman in 1993 approached Crick attempting to learn about reprints of his 1953 paper. In 1997, Friedman asked and received permission from Crick to pubish a photograph of Crick in his book, "Medicine's Ten Most Significant Discoveries". 2 letters signed by Crick note these events. The specifics of the archive follow with a brief history. Crick, Francis, WHAT MAD PURSUIT: A Personal View of Scientific Discovery, Basic Books: New York, 1988, First edition. INSCRIBED by Crick to Meyer Friedman of the Meyer Friedman Institute. WITH several SIGNED letters and a SIGNED check. Today the term DNA is a household word, a word we associate with the continued battle against disease, the continuing understanding of our own workings as a human machine, and to those of us who are interested in the seminal inventions of the 20th century, with the Giants who discovered DNA: Francis Crick, James Watson, Rosalind Franklin and RG Gosling. Watson, Crick, and Wilkins were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1962 for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nuclear acids and its significance for information transfer in living material. What Mad Pursuit contains Francis Crick's account of that remarkable journey, and it gives us a rather personal window into the man. This particular copy is INSCRIBED to Meyer Friedman, who is probably best known as the co-developer the theory of the "Type A" behavior, and who opened up the field of inquiry into the mind-heart (or mind-body) connection that has also became a part of our popular culture. It is a fascinating connection between 2 scientists. One who is looking at the macro or "top-down" world of how we work as humans, and the other who is looking at the micro, or "inside-out" way of how we work as humans. This archive includes several letters SIGNED by Crick to Friedman. The book is inscribed to Friedman in 1988, and was given to Friedman by Crick. The archive includes a note Friedman wrote indicating he afterward sent Crick a check for the cost of the book: "I admit I also sent him the check to get his signature on its reverse side. I was fortunate." The signed check is also included. 2 further letters between Crick and Friedman are included in the archive. The first from 1993 is responding to a query by Friedman about reprints of his 1953 paper. The second grants permission to Friedman to publish Cricks photograph in a book Medicine's Ten Most Significant Discoveries. In all, 5 pieces (with 4 signatures by Crick). What Mad Pursuit is very good in dj, noting some spine slant, what appears to be a coffee stain on the fore-edge, and sun-fading to the dj in several places. A small fine black ink mark on p. 69 with very short related note inked on rear endpaper (both from Friedman). The 2 letters from Crick are Fine noting the usual folds for mailing. Friedman's note is very good and the check is good with a paperclip indentation through Crick's signature. A nice archive, and worthy of addition to any strong collection of 20th century medicine. Hard Cover. Signed by Author. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        King Ink (Signed First Edition)

      Black Spring Press, London 1988 - First Edition. SIGNED by Cave just after the title page, dated in the year of publication: "Nick Cave / 1990." But for a tiny bit of wear at one corner (only visible on close inspection). Fine and unread in a Fine dust jacket. Author and singer/songwriter Cave's first book, which collects early lyrics from his recordings with The Birthday Party and the Bad Seeds (up to and including the Bad Seeds' record, "Your Funeral, My Trial"), short stories and short plays. Cave's dark vision, coupled with his strong connections to primitive folk and blues music, and murder ballads in particular, has yielded an artist whose music rivals the intensity and integrity of Tom Waits and Johnny Cash. Even more impressively, Cave recently made a strong debut as a screenwriter in the hard-boiled Australian western, "The Proposition." Extremely uncommon.

        The Old-time Printer

      Baltimore: Xavier Press, 1988. vi, 18pp. Samuel Clemens's account of his formative time spent as a printer's apprentice, presented as a speech at a dinner for New York printers. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of Clemens, and a vignette depicting a compositor setting type. This copy is in a designer binding by the Italian-British bookbinder Paolo Taddeo. Onlays of salmon, grey, and black morocco form the shape of a piece of lead type, outlined in palladium-leaf tooling, creating a symmetrical design on each of the covers. The artist chose the letter H for his design, citing the letter's visual stability and steadiness, "with both feet firmly planted on the ground." As someone whose first language is Italian, he also notes that his selection of the letter H is "controversial," since it is not pronounced in his native language and gives him difficulty in spoken English. However, he writes, "in my mother tongue it's a letter of vital importance in the way that it changes the sounds of the consonants it attaches to." Housed in a clamshell box that contains a drawer for the two pieces of seven- and ten-point type included with the book. Taddeo was elected a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders in 2013 and has twice won the Arthur Johnson Award in the organization's annual competition. (2 1/2 by 2; 65x53mm).

      London: Unwin Hyman 1988-90 Five Volumes 8vo vi,297; vi,385; vi,393; vi,380; viii,455pp - The History of Middle-Earth Vols. 1-5. A Very Fine matching set of the Unwin Hyman reprint series, all in Very Fine Brodart-protected Dust Wrappers, with the Unwin Hyman logo to the spines. This set is comprised of The Book of Lost Tales Parts I & II, The Lays of Beleriand, The Shaping of Middle-Earth, and The Lost Road and Other Stories. Lost Tales Book One is the 1990 Printing, all the others are the 1988 Printings. These five volumes together comprise the bulk of J.R.R. Tolkien's early writings on Middle-Earth, from The Book of Lost Tales, the first major work of imagination by J.R.R. Tolkien, begun in 1916-17 when he was 25 years old, taking in such sustained works as the Lay of the Children of Hurin, and the Lay of Leithian; writings detailing the mythological background of Middle-Earth, such as the Ambarkanta or Shape of the World; the Annals of Valinor & Beleriand which chronicle the First Age of Middle-Earth; the earliest versions the Silmarillion; through to the later forms of the Annals, The Lost Road, and The Lhammas. These writings bring the History of Middle-Earth up to the point where The Lord of the Rings was begun, and the next four volumes of the series chronicle the History of The Lord of the Rings. A highly desireable set, becoming increasingly difficult to obtain in this condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Taboo

      (Wilmington): (Totleben & Bissette)/[Spiderbaby Grafix]. (1988). An advance copy of the first issue of Taboo, a landmark comix/graphic novel anthology, inscribed by the editor (Totleben), with the written note "#3.5 in 25 preview copies." Tapebound 8-1/2" x 11" galley sheets, with a handwritten "Taboo!" label on the front cover. Contributions by Clive Barker, S. Clay Wilson, Alan Moore, Chester Brown, Charles Burns, Eddie Campbell, Charles Vess, Dave Sim, and others. Taboo published edgier graphic fiction than could be done by mainstream presses, including Alan Moore and Chester Brown's From Hell, and work by Charles Burns, famous for his later graphic novel Black Hole. Front label lifting; ownership stamps; else fine. Together with an 8-page solicitation of contributions dated the previous year, delineating the guidelines and the vision. Again, an ownership stamp; near fine with one corner stapled. Together with the published version of the first issue, inscribed by Totleben and the publisher, Stephen Bissette, as well as Taboo 2 and Taboo 3. A notable collection, particularly with the advance copy -- a handmade production apparently limited to 25 copies but doubtless far fewer still exist. First Edition.

        Blaue Lippen, Portrait. Öltempera auf Leinwand.

      1988 1988 - 100 x 50 cm, Tadellos Signiert und datiert. Valentin Lustig (*1955 ) aus Klausenburg in Siebenbürgen (Rumänien) stammender Künstler. Seit 1983 lebt Lustig in der Schweiz. Seine Kunst reicht von naiv bis surrealistisch-phantastisch, und enthält zahlreiche Anspielungen auf mythische und biblische Themen. Als Kind von Holocaustüberlebenden thematisiert Lustig auch das Schicksal des jüdischen Volkes. Doch dies kommt nicht explizit zum Ausdruck, da er sich einer individuellen und symbolischen bis ins Groteske reichenden Bildersprache bedient, die verschiedene Deutungen zulässt. [Wer Topor mag - mag auch Lustig]Austellungen:1994: Binz 39, Zürich; Galerie Pennarz (Alte Schule), Gundamsried; Pfaffenhofen(Deutschland)1996: Galerie Stubnitz Kontor, Zürich1997: Allmedia Productions, Zürich1998: Hewlett Gallery, College of Fine Arts, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh (USA)2003: The Frick Art & Historical Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania2004: Institut Hongrois de Paris, Paris2004: Dorottya Gallery (Ernst Museum), Budapest2005: Lebewohlfabrik, Zürich2006/2007: Yeshiva University Museum, New York City2007: Cooperativo, Zürich2008: Galerie Hauptmann und Kampa, Zürich 5000 gr.
