Jazz collector and researcher Arthur Newman], Many thanks. Please keep reading and listening, Milt "Judge" Hinton, [cartoon bass] '93. Never B sharp, Never B Flat, Just B Natural."

        Greatest Story Never Told - A Scientific Inquiry into the Evidence of the Fall Man From A Higher Civilization in Antiquity

      Cottage Grove, MN: Biohistorical Press, 1988 Cottage Grove, MN: Biohistorical Press, 1988. First Edition, signed and inscribed - but not personalized ("Very Best of Wishes, Sincerely, Lana Cantrell") - by the author on the ffep. With the rare Dustjacket. Octavo, i-vi + 993 pp. + 9 page bibliography and 9 page index. White cloth boards, gilt titling, white/gold/black pictorial jacket, sphinx on its front, Cantrell on the back. A gleaming, fine book in a very good jacket showing some rubbing to the front. Flaps are unclipped, but un-priced as issued. A fascinating, odd, eccentric, compelling, undefinable book which, despite its size and eccentricities (over 1,000 dense pages, 44 chapters individually internally paginated varying from 4 to 80 pages, each with it own "References" page, listing sources both arcane and historic for what the author had therein written, and nine pages of bibliography) and its scarcity, now and at publication, somehow found its way to the Random House Reader's List of the 100 Best Nonfiction Titles of All Time - 88th place on that list, where it sits today. That's because anyone can quite literally feel the passion, intensity, individualism, hard work, deep research and originality of thought Cantrell put into it. The Greatest Story Never Told may be the most singular exposition you'll ever read of the now-popular general contention of some scholars - both fringe and not-so-fringe - that the age of human civilization, its sources, its purposes and its destiny are...very different from what we've always thought, here within the mainstream. Regardless of one's opinion about all that - an absolutely singular read. Very scarce, particularly with the signature and the well-preserved jacket. L-39n

        The Piano Teacher

      New York: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1988. First American edition of the Nobel Prize-winning author's first book to be translated into English. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed and dated by Jelinek on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Sexuality and violence are coupled in this reveling story set in modern-day Vienna by Elfriedge Jelinek, winner of the Heinrich Boll Prize (1986). It's his first novel to be translated into English, and it won the author the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2004. The Piano Teacher depicts the emotionally rigorous world of Erika, and the neurotic love triangle that confuses violence for love. The inevitable breakdown is an insight beyond what Jelinek saw as the artificial prettiness of Vienna to show a side still reminiscent of its uncomfortable early post-war years. The novel was adapted into a film in 2001, directed by Michael Haneke, and it won numerous awards, including Best Actor and Best Actress at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival, and Best Foreign Film at the 2002 German Film Awards.

        The Satanic Verses ? Uncorrected Advance Proof in Proof Dustwrapper

      London: Viking, 1988 - London: Viking, 1988. A near fine copy of the Uncorrected Advance Proof in a fine proof dustwrapper. Though there seem to be no textual differences to the first trade edition, the proof of The Satanic Verses has some unique features. For instance, there are no ornamental devices separating the sub-chapters, and the "Acknowledgements" page (549) is missing completely. Also, the beginning of the "Ayesha" chapter provides for numerical sub-divisions, which is unnecessary as there are none. The proof dustwrapper varies from the one of the first UK edition in that it is matt, uses a different and bolder typeface for the lettering of the author?s name and the title, has a box at the bottom of the inner flap and mentions both the UK and the US publishers at the bottom of the lower flap.

        Past Forgetting: Memoirs of the Hammer Years (Signed First Edition)

      Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London 1988 - First Edition.

Near Fine in a bright, Near Fine dust jacket, with a bruise at the top of the front endpaper from an earlier erasure. An uncommon signature from the meticulous actor whose name is synonymous with the great Hammer films of the 1950s through the 1970s (as Baron Frankenstein and Dr. Van Helsing, among other roles). Cushing also played Sherlock Holmes many times, and was memorable late in his career as Grand Moff Tarkin in the original "Star Wars" film, Darth Vader's unlucky first in command. He passed away in 1994, two years after the date of this signing. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Floating Through the Desert

      [Stillwater ME. 1988]. Artist&#39;s book, copy number one of a series of seven, hand painted and hand lettered in watercolor and gouache on Rives BFK paper by the artist / author, Nancy Leavitt, and signed by her on the colophon. Page size: 7 x 10 inches; 14 leaves. Bound: loose as issued in hand-made case of green cotton fabric with purple and darker green exposed threads, lined with acrylic pastepaper, with malachite clasp. Hand lettered and painted in watercolor and gouache. The text is Ms. Leavitt&#39;s own narrating a dream sequence of a trip by car in February 1988. The dotted yellow line of the road on the tan paper is thrown into great relief by the bright blues in which the text is lettered and which surround the rectangular images about the letters. The letters themselves are in several shades of blue, and they are of various sizes, with words and lines on top of one another. The narrator tells of beginning to fall asleep as the blue in the image begins to take over the horizon line as well as the sides. Moving ahead by one month the dotted line on the road (this time through Arizona) is terracotta and the sky yellow with purple mountains just at the horizon line. The text is in a duller purple, terracotta, and celadon and Ms. Leavitt describes pencil sketches that almost "navigate" for her. She writes, "I floated through the desert moving without touching the earth" and describes how the road appears to climb up into the blue sky. The last image features the sky seeping over onto the dotted line / highway. The words throughout are in various colors, with a word starting in a paler tone and the last letters in a darker version of the first. Words in scarlet are followed by words in burgundy and then reddish-brown. Sometimes bright scarlet words are followed by green words, then blue, then lavender. Turquoise words sit below a coral road line marker just below a turquoise sky. This road trip with artist Nancy Leavitt is full of beauty and wonder. An extremely early effort by this talented artist, a harbinger of things to come, showing an already finely honed color sense that illuminates all she letters. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10520.jpg >Image.</A><br>
