        SCREWJACK

      Santa Barbara: Neville, 1991. First edition. Hardcover. Fine (except for two small spots to rear cover and one to front cover...possibly some body fluid (or DNA) from HST???). This copy marked 'Presentation Copy' and signed, in full, by Hunter S. Thompson on the colophon page. Contains 3 pieces; Mescalito, Death of a Poet, and Screwjack. Bright red cloth with gilt decoration to front cover (HST's monster) issued without dust jacket. As for the chronological order of the three pieces, here is what the author states in his introduction: "As for the ORDER, I think Screwjack should be last & Mescalito first --so the dramatic tension (and the true chronological weirdness) can build like Bolero to a faster and wilder climax that will drag the reader relentlessly up a hill, & then drop him off a cliff.....That is the Desired Effect, and if we start with Screwjack it won't happen. The book will peter out."

In een ander document, de 'Memorie van rechten', verdedigt de advocaat van Van der Streng, Carel Philip van Cuylenborgh, vroeger bevriend met Buys, zich tegen de zware beschuldiging prostituees valse getuigenissen tegen Buys te hebben laten afleggen. De memorie is geschreven in de gevangenis, want Van Cuylenborgh was in verband met deze zaak door de Utrechtse hoofdofficier Van Lockhorst opgesloten. Van Rijnsbach: ""De getuigenverklaringen tegen Buys zijn van een smakeloze gedetailleerdheid, die vermoedelijk de verkoopbaarheid van deze lijvige kwartijn ten zeerste bevorderd heeft"". Behalve van overspel had Alida van der Streng haar echtgenoot ook beschuldigd van frauduleus bankroet. In zijn verdediging tegen deze beschuldiging verwijst Buys naar twee nummers van 'Den Algemeene Spectator' uit 1748. Daarin neemt de heer Spectator (Buys dus) het op voor de man ""die buiten staat raakt om zyn schulden te betaalen"", onder meer ""door slechte huishouding en verquistende levenswijs van zijne Vrouw"" en stelt uiteindelijk vast: ""Zulk een is meer te beklagen als veragtenswaardig"". In feite legde Buys hier dus de schuld voor het bankroet grotendeels bij echtgenote Alida. In 1759 was zijn woede nog niet bekoeld. In het eerste deel van zijn 'Hollandsche wysgeer' somt hij enkele vrouwen op ""van een afgryzelyk caracter"": een Messalina, Sempronia, Xantippe, of een nog levende Alida""."

Behalve van overspel had Alida van der Streng haar echtgenoot ook beschuldigd van frauduleus bankroet. In zijn verdediging tegen deze beschuldiging verwijst Buys naar twee nummers van 'Den Algemeene Spectator' uit 1748. Daarin neemt de heer Spectator (Buys dus) het op voor de man ""die buiten staat raakt om zyn schulden te betaalen"", onder meer ""door slechte huishouding en verquistende levenswijs van zijne vrouw"" en stelt uiteindelijk vast: ""Zulk een is meer te beklagen als veragtenswaardig"". In feite legde Buys hier dus de schuld voor het bankroet grotendeels bij echtgenote Alida. In 1759 was zijn woede nog niet bekoeld. In het eerste deel van zijn 'Hollandsche wysgeer' somt hij enkele vrouwen op ""van een afgryzelyk caracter"": een Messalina, Sempronia, Xantippe, of een nog levende Alida""."

        5 ms. Briefe mit eigenh. U.

      Chicago (Ill.), 1987 bis 1991. - Zusammen 4 SS. auf 6 Bll. Gr.-4to. An Michael Tochtermann vom „Handelsblatt" betr.

It is equally remarkable that the reproductions are presented in handsome, durable form, and accompanied by authoritative essays by contemporary economists [.]". – George Stigler hatte i.

        De Mensch Ontmaskert. Leiden, Dirk Haak, 1720.

      "8°: * 4 A-R 4, gepag.: [8] 320 pp. Titelpagina met gegraveerd vignet door François van Bleyswijk. Oorspr. papieren omslag, zonder rug. Lit.: NNBW VIII, 440; Buijnsters, Spectatoriale geschriften (Utrecht 1991); Sturkenboom, Spectators van hartstocht (Hilversum 1998) Muller 300; Scheepers I, 326; Waller 286"."'De Mensch ontmaskert', zowel door Muller als door Scheepers als zeldzaam gekwalificeerd, is het eerste oorspronkelijke Nederlandstalige spectatoriale geschrift. Het verscheen van 15 februari tot en met 14 november 1718 elke maandag in Den Haag. Als auteur noemt Muller, een aantekening in handschrift uit 1734 citerend, ""Dunkamp weleer schout van Weesop en naderhand een gunsteling van de Prins van Oranje, wanneer Sijn Hooghijt met de croonprinces van Engeland trouwde"". Hiermee wordt waarschijnlijk gedoeld op Joan Duncan (1690 - 1753), een jurist die op latere leeftijd een van de belangrijkste raadsadviseurs zou worden van Willem IV. Pieter Anthony de Huybert (1693 - 1780), drossaard van Muiden, en Joan Jakob Mauricius (1692 - 1768), later gouverneur-generaal van Suriname, met wie Duncan sinds zijn studententijd nauw bevriend was, zouden zijn medeauterus zijn geweest. Raadselachtig bij dit alles is het voorwoord bij deze uitgave in boekvorm. Daarin wordt het staken van de uitgave geweten aan het ""ontydig afsterven van den voornaamsten schryver"", terwijl Duncan in 1718 nog 35 jaar te gaan had en zijn vrienden een nog veel langer leven beschoren was."

        La Fille du Docteur

      1991. CALLE, Sophie. La Fille du Docteur. [18] pp. Illustrated with 18 black-and-white photographic reproductions, 16 of them full-page on thin transparent vellum paper. 4to., 280 x 200 mm, bound in publisher's faux leopard skin over boards, purple endpapers. In cloth protective box. New York: Thea Westreich, 1991. |~||~||~||~||~| The most visually spectacular of her artist's books to date, La Fille du Docteur represents another exploration of the part autobiographical/part fictional personae of Sophie Calle. The work consists of sixteen facsimile cards of congratulation (purportedly) from colleagues of the artist's father upon the announcement of her birth. This was traditional amongst the French medical profession, and Calle's father was a physician, or was he? Each of these cards is housed in a glassine envelope, facing one of the full-page sequential images of the artist performing a drunken striptease. These images conclude with the naked, comatose Sophie (who "will be a source of joy to her parents") sprawled in a heap. One of an edition of 230 copies, this example is SIGNED by Sophie Calle on the colophon. With a new protective box replacing the original cardboard slipcase. A fine copy.

From the publisher (in 1991): "Over the last fifteen years, Friedlander has been working with a number of models to create his own way of seeing and photographing the female nude. Little of this work has ever appeared. The photographs are both highly intimate and coolly detached. The frequently surprising perspectives are balanced by the mundane backdrops of ordinary life, the real domestic interiors of the models. He appears to have taken a primary theme of Western art and re-invented it." Signed by the Artist. As New (from Friedlander's personal archive). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
