        Manuscript and Correspondence Archive

      [c. 1990s] - Writings by the noted mystery writer (and poet), who is, among many other things, the author of the story, and later the novel, that were the basis for the well-reviewed film Drive. The materials here belonged to Sallis' friend Robert Skinner, of Xavier University Library, himself also the author of a highly praised series of mystery novels. A notable association, made all the more so by the fact that both Sallis and Skinner have written mystery series that feature non-white protagonists -- Sallis an African-American, Lew Griffin; and Skinner a Creole, Wesley Farrell, who has been passing for white -- and they also each have written books on Chester Himes, the expatriate African-American mystery writer whose novels laid the foundation for mystery series featuring black detectives with his books that featured Harlem cops "Coffin" Ed Johnson and "Gravedigger" Jones. Sallis wrote a Himes biography and Skinner edited a book of interviews and compiled a bibliography. The Sallis archive includes: * the typescript (printout) of "George Pelecanos," which was published as the introduction to the 1999 St. Martin's paperback edition of Pelecanos' The Big Blowdown. With a few minor changes between this version and the published one. 4 pages. * the typescript (printout) of "Introduction," published in the 1994 Avalon paperback edition of Chester Himes's A Case of Rape. 7 pages. * the typescript (printout) of "Career Moves." 4 pages. Six vignettes about looking for work. Published in Potato Tree, 2007. * the typescript (printout) of "Day's Heat." Fiction. 20 pages (plus a blank, numbered 21st page), 4170 words. Published in Sallis' collection A City Equal to My Desire, 2000. * the typescript (printout) of "Uncles and Fireflies." An essay that pays tribute to his uncle; possibly unpublished. 4 pages. * the typescripts (printouts) of three poems, one page each: "Dawn in the Country's Still Heart," "Our Drive into the Country's Still Heart," and "Reading the World." * a typed letter signed to Robert Skinner, dated August 27, 1992. Touches on his own writing and on Skinner's work on Himes's unfinished novel Plan B (which Sallis calls Plan A). With mailing envelope. * a holiday invitation, 1993, hand-addressed; a signed birthday card, undated, with envelope; an autograph postcard signed, 1995, from New York; a signed holiday card, undated; a signed holiday card, with added sentiment, 1995, with envelope; a signed holiday card, 1997, with envelope. * a flyer announcing the publication party of Sallis' Black Hornet, a Lew Griffin novel; a flyer for a 1995 Sallis reading, which prints his poem "Art of Biography"; an unused promotional postcard featuring the cover art for Moth, another Lew Griffin novel; photocopy of a promotional flyer from No Exit Press, with mailing envelope; 3 promotional flyers from 1997; a 1999 printout of Iain Sinclair's review of Sallis' Eye of the Cricket, again a Lew Griffin novel, from Waterstones website. * approximately 75 pages of printouts of emails from Sallis to Skinner, May 1996 to October 1997 (plus one page from 1999), and one printed email signed, 2000, that Sallis had to mail when it kept bouncing back to him. With envelope. All items fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Song of the Open Road

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1990. Original goatskin. Some offsetting and a few scuffs/stains to slipcase; otherwise fine and fresh.. Aaron Siskind. Folio (435 x 370 mm; 17 x 14 ½ in.). 6 photogravures by Aaron Siskind, printed by Paul Taylor. Original quarter black Nigerian goatskin over evergreen silk-covered board, gilt-lettered on spine; publisher's cloth slipcase. LIMITED EDITION, number 435 of 550 copies signed by Siskind, printed by Clary Nelson at Renaissance Press. Laid-in is the Whitman/Siskind issue of the Limited Editions Club Letter, series 50, vol. 4, number 560, Sept. 1990. Siskind was long associated with the Abstract Expressionist group, and one of only a few photographers within that circle. He is also a major figure from the Black Mountain School: he met Harry Callahan while both taught there in 1950, and the two later joined the faculty of the IIT Institute of Design in Chicago (founded by László Moholy-Nagy as the New Bauhaus). In 1971 he followed Callahan (who had left in 1961) to teach for the rest of his life at the Rhode Island School of Design. "Through his use of form, emotional timbre, and iconography, Siskind's work reflects one man's struggle to understand his life in relation to the world. His imagery, on one level, is autobiographical, encompassing all the many political, social, sexual, aesthetic, and introspective observations of a long and complex life" (Carl Chiarenza). This is his last body of work, the images near his home in Providence, Rhode Island "of tar poured into the cracks of light-colored concrete roads, forming swirls and curves and parallel lines, cheerful or brooding markings on a gritty surface that is rendered almost microscopically and enlarged into a striking textural background for each of the six photographs."

        A Fragile Walk.

      London: Camberwell. 1990?. First Edition. Hardcover. Number 2 of only 5 copies printed. A tribute to rampant imagination and a belief in the beauty of textures, both natural and man-made. The entire book is printed on coarse, thick handmade papers in several colors. Illustrations are bold, colorful, childishly simple, childishly devious. Carvings in wood, lead, copper and fibre attach themselves throughout in a multi-media romp. The binding consists of a course linen spine with leather strapping joining two large slabs of stained pine on which nail heads, industrial staples and sculpting in various metals recall in a parody the bindings in precious metals and stones of medieval manuscripts. Les Bicknell has worked at Camberwell, "the only college in the UK providing specialist postgraduate study in Book Arts." His work is included in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Rijksmuseum, and MOMA. Indeed, one copy of this title is in the Victoria and Albert Museum. A fine copy.; Quarto .

        Une guerre. Livre unique entièrement peint. Signé par l'artiste.

      Paris, chez l'artiste, 1 août 1990 - 28 février 1991. 23 x 18 cm, 11 f. format croissant. Peint à la main. Reliure de l'artiste, couv. peinte avec le titre, 11 ff. double coffret. Livre unique, entièrement peint à la main par Kate Van Houten (née en 1940). L'artiste américaine a préparé et cousu le papier de ce livre le 1er août 1990, jour de l'invasion du Koweit par l'Irak. Chaque page est peinte à la main et égrène les dates et lieux des batailles de la Guerre du Golfe. C'est par pur hasard que le dernier jour de l'opération Tempête du désert a correspondu à la dernière page du livre. Sommaire : Kate Van Houten (New-York, 1940) a étudié lhistoire et les langues étrangères aux USA, avant de poursuivre des études de sculpture à Milan. Sur la route du retour vers les Etats-Unis, elle passe par Paris, où elle décide de vivre. Elle apprend la gravure sur cuivre et sur zinc et la sérigraphie dans latelier 17 de Hayter. Kate Van Houten travaille à partir dune idée qui se traduit en geste, et prend souvent ses sculptures pour modèle de ses oeuvres sur papier, tandis que son travail sérigraphique se rapproche du paysage, avec ce sentiment des grands espaces américains qui lui manquent parfois.

Casson's Casson [volume one] Square Regal Format. 13 x 14 inches. Pagination (34), (4), (100), (1) pages. Limited edition book this being No. 18 of 300 . This volume consists of 50 images (49 + "White Pine" frontis) with the last plate #50, [South Portage] lacking. Approved and signed in pencil in the white margin, the title and the artist name of each page. Each limited edition print has a heavy paper separator with gilt plate number printed on it and a separate tissue guard. All working materials and plates destroyed. Volume includes ephemera of a separate certificate of ownership. Near fine condition for container box and near fine condition for the full leather bound book with blind stamped medallion in the middle of the front board and blind-embossed titling on the spine. All inside pages and plates inside are in fine condition. French marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Gilt stamped medallion plate numbers. In 1989 M. Bernard Loates developed a unique lithographic process of screenless "tone" printing, known as the Bertoneâ„¢ process. This new process was used in this volume.The Bertoneâ„¢ process of solid screenless lithography process require as many as twenty three hand mixed colours, individually laid. Specially made light fast inks were applied using a single colour rotary press. Paper is M. Bernard Loates Stallion Vellum neutral pH 100% rag paper custom made and watermarked stock. Volume is housed in a purpose built fold over gray suede box with matching endpapers and blind stamped medallions on the covers. A.J.Casson and his wife Margaret chose 2 of their favourite Casson images of that year's work at the end of each year [thus thus called Casson's Cassons]. 2 volumes were created about 1989/1990 near the end of his life (died in 1992) each containing the identical 51 reproductions of these selected images. All were initialed by Mr. Casson and titled and identically numbered. These images were printed in editions of three hundred and some of Volume 1 & 2 (perhaps only 60 copies) were bound into a large coffee table book with full mahagony coloured leather binding and extensive text by Paul Duval. Each print was a plate in the book and had both a tissue in front of the print and cover page with a gold seal of Casson's head. Sadly, it seems many of these leather bound books were taken apart and the prints sold individually making the bound volume(s) quite rare now. 50 (of 51) signed and numbered lithographs, titles as follows: - White Pine - Old Mill Elora - Barns at Twelve Mile Lake - Whitney - Northern Barns - Lake of Two Rivers - Madawaska - Church of the St. Laurence O'Toole - Opeongo River - Cliffs Lake Maginaw - York River - Settler's Cabin - Fraser Bay - Still Morning - Palmer Rapids - Lumber Mill - Farm Near Vandorf - Lake Baptiste - McGarry Flats - Madawaska Valley - Long Lake - Bon Echo Rock - Lake Clarendon - Early Winter - Store in Bancroft - Whitefish Falls - Morning Light - Barns, McGarry Flats - Tiverton - Halfway Lake - Cloche Hills - Farm House - Near Quadrilla - Harvest Time - Old Barn - Conroy Marsh - Baptiste Lake - Combermere - Barry Bay - Old Maple - Kintail - Barn Near Quadrille - Lake Mazinaw - Boulter - Old Farm House - Frood Lake - Old Barn - Lake Willoughby - Barn on York River - Morning Mist - South Portage (missing) This book is on consignment with LDRB.

        Love Seeds": Ivory micro-engraving.

      China Small case (14.5 cm, 5.6").. [ca. 1990?] Classical Chinese poetry in calligraphed format: This tiny rectangle of ivory (only about 4mm tall) is impossibly delicately etched with both the Chinese original and Fletcher's English translation of Wang Wei's Tang Dynasty-era poem "Xiang Si" (given here as "Love Seeds"). The xiang si bean (Abrus precatorius) is a Chinese symbol of love and longing; its small, shiny, red seeds were used as tokens of love, hence the reference in this poem: "The red bean grows in southern lands / With spring its slender tendrils twine / Gather for me some more, I pray / Of fond remembrance 'tis the sign." Additionally, both the Chinese and English texts are presented on a folded slip of paper, with additional commentary in Chinese characters only. The ivory is mounted within a black frame affixed to a small square of gold paper, on red velvet, and contained in a beautiful, eminently displayable case covered in olive-green silk with a woven Asian-inspired knotwork pattern in bronze and blue, decorated with a Chinese-printed label on the front cover. The case closes with a fabric loop and white-painted wooden toggle. Box as above, showing the faintest hint of rubbing to one corner, overall in excellent condition. Small compartment beneath presentation window seems to indicate a long slender item was at one point laid in, but it is difficult to say what that might have been.

        Archive of correspondence and manuscript relating to the publication of "The Important Game of Chicken"

      N.p., N.p. 1990 - Small archive of correspondence between Patricia Highsmith and editor James L. Harmon, regarding Highsmith's invited contribution to an anthology published by Simon and Schuster in 2002, edited by Harmon, titled "Take My Advice: Letters to the Next Generation," featuring a number of short essays (all new) by a wide variety of fiction writers, thinkers, and icons with the wisdom they feel compelled to pass on to the those who will navigate the future. Contributors to the book included Ken Kesey, Joe Dallesandro, William S. Burroughs, Lydia Lunch, Spalding Gray, Richard Powers, Quentin Crisp, Bette Davis, Jim Harrison, Martha Gellhorn, Joe-Peter Witkin, Mary McCarthy, Anita O'Day, Bettie Page, and many others. The archive includes four typed letters signed and one typed note signed from Highsmith to Harmon, discussing the essay, as well as the contract (with a signed cover letter) for the short piece from Highsmith's agent, and the corrected manuscript submitted by Highsmith, a six page nonfiction essay titled "The Important Game of Chicken." In her letters, Highsmith speaks with perception and insight about the process, noting an interest in how the inclusions by Mary McCarthy and Bette Davis might read, and expresses admiration for Fay Weldon's contribution (apparently sent to her by Harmon). Clearly the list of contributors sparked the author's interest in participating.Highsmith also offers addresses for potential contributors (apparently requested by Harmon), including Wim Wenders and Peter Handke, and speaks disparagingly of George Bush, Sr.Highsmith's essay, written just after the Berlin Wall came down, muses in some detail on the importance of "playing chicken" in world affairs, and cites numerous examples of how this peaceful (and political) approach has worked well throughout history, as well as examples where pure aggression have repeatedly failed.Highsmith's essay was not included in the anthology, and remains unpublished.All material Very Good to Near Fine. All TLS's include original stamped mailing envelopes, and only the typed essay with corrections is a photocopy, as sent by the author. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
