        Needful Things

      New York: Viking, (1991). First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 690 pages. A novel set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine. The premise is that a demon or perhaps the Devil himself sets up shop where he sells the items people most covet, like a Sandy Koufax baseball card, for absurdly low prices. Mayhem then ensues. First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a very good dust jacket (scuffing to covers). This copy is inscribed to King's friend and fellow baseball fan, the evolutionary paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould. Sometimes as a bookseller, a book makes your humble cataloguer sad. This is such an instance. Clearly King had great affection for Gould, beyond a shared love of baseball, even if they were passionate about different teams (a rivalry that played out in their books: see Gould, Wonderful Life, footnote on page 285, and the acknowledgements page of King's The Tommyknockers). But alas, Gould left us too soon and his books are now destined for other owners, a situation that Gould, as a book collector, well understood. The inscription reads, 'For Steve and Deborah Gould - with lots of love to [the children] as well. Steve, I know you don't believe in the devil, but I'm sure you DO believe that, if there WAS such a creature, he would undoubtedly ensnare the souls of young boys by offering them Brooklyn Dodgers baseball cards cheap! Love you guys. Steven King. 9/14/91.' This novel was published on September 30, 1991; given that the inscription is dated two weeks earlier, it is almost certainly one of King's author copies. It is hard to imagine that there is a better copy.

[6], 125, [3]; [4], [2, blank], 58 pp. Lavishly color illustrated throughout. With accompanying two CDs and all called-for ephemera. Housed within publisher's deluxe clamshell box. An immaculate copy, very fine. Housed in the original cardboard shipping carton. A celebration in art and words of the greatest guitarist of our generation on the occasion of the twenty-four concerts at the Royal Albert Hall that climaxed Clapton's 1990-1991 Grand Tour. In scrapbook/collage/multi-media form by Blake, one of the twentieth century's greatest pop artists, and with a separate, appreciative essay by Taylor, one of pop music's most respected journalists, press agent for The Beatles, and close friend to so many of its luminaries. Sir Peter Thomas Blake (b. 1932, is an English pop artist, best known for his album cover design for The Beatles' classic, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. "During the late 1950s, Blake became one of the best known British pop artists. His paintings from this time included imagery from advertisements, music hall entertainment, and wrestlers, often including collaged elements. Blake was included in group exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Arts and had his first one person exhibitions in 1960. It was with the 'Young Contemporaries' exhibition of 1961 where he was exhibited alongside David Hockney and R.B. Kitaj that he was first identified with the emerging British Pop Art movement. Blake won the (1961) John Moores junior award for his work Self Portrait with Badges. He first came to wider public attention when, along with Pauline Boty, Derek Boshier and Peter Phillips, he featured in Ken Russell's film on pop art, Pop Goes the Easel, which was broadcast on BBC television in 1962. From 1963 Blake was represented by Robert Fraser which placed him at the centre of swinging London and brought him into contact with leading figures of popular culture" (Wikipedia). British journalist Derek Taylor (1932-1997) was the first to give The Beatles a rave review in a mainstream newspaper. Becoming close with the group and its manager, Brian Epstein, he soon took charge of all Beatles' press relations. George Harrison's song Blue Jay Way was written during his 1967 visit to California, on a foggy night waiting for buddy Derek Taylor and his wife to come visit ("There's a fog upon L.A. / And my friends have lost their way"). He handled press for The Beach Boys, The Byrds, and many others, including Harry Nilsson. In 1967, he co-conceived and co-produced the Monterey Pop Festival. Ephemera: Backstage Pass; "Badge" badge; Four (4) E.C. guitar picks: tortoise, red, turquoise, and black; One (1) Ernie Ball custom gauge guitar string in original packaging. All within the Blake-illustrated envelope as issued. With a facsimile inscriptions from Clapton to Blake on the title page and from George Harrison (with flower drawing) to Blake on the copyright page. CDs: Eighteen (18) live recordings from the Royal Albert Hall, London 1990-1991, with guests Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Phil Collins, and the National Philharmonic Orchestra.

        Lager Lieder

      Providence, R.I.: Ziggurat Press, 1991. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Feldman, Walter. Limited special edition, number 12 of 17, oblong quarto size, [30] pp., signed by Walter Feldman. Limited special edition, number 12 of 17 numbered copies. Walter Feldman (1925-2017) was an art professor at Brown University and established the Ziggurat Press in 1984. This work is an illustrated collection of the songs that were sung in concentration camps, transcribed and translated from the Polish record album, Piesni Obozowe (Songs of the Concentration Camps), Polskie Nagrania: Muza, 1979, #SX1715. The songs were sung by Beligian amateur singer and performer Aleksander Kulisiewicz in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp where Mr. Feldman was a prisoner from 1939 to 1945; after the war he collected the songs and performed them on the record. The authentic ledger folders used for binding are painted in black stripes, evocative of the uniforms worn by camp prisoners. Feldman states, "When I first saw the Lager Lieder I knew immediately that I would have to compose visual accompaniments for these powerful and frightening words. All aspects of the book were designed hopefully, to provide the appropriate setting, including the ledger folders (actually from the 1930s) to the authentic tattoo members in the title."***DESCRIPTION: Original bolted gray cloth with black stripes and leather corner pieces, paper label with title to upper board, black and red handprints to both pastedowns and title-page, ten woodcut illustrations, Bodoni type, Nideggen and Ingres papers, oblong quarto (9.75" by 13"), unpaginated [30 pp.], limited special edition, number 12 of 17 numbered copies, signed by Walter Feldman.***CONDITION: A fine copy in a repurposed, one-of-a-kind binding that is meant to be soiled in certain places, internally bright, fine; like new.***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please inquire for details.***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Gay Roots.

      San Francisco: Gay Sunshine Press,, 1991-3. Twenty Years of Gay Sunshine. An Anthology of Gay History, Sex, Politics, and Culture. Edited by Winston Leyland. Two volumes, octavo. Original violet half cloth, titles gilt to spine, white paper sides, patterned purple endpapers. Illustrated frontispiece and others in the text. Titles a little rubbed on vol. i spine, small dent to lower edge of rear board on vol. i, but all in excellent condition. First edition, first printing, Winston Leyland's own copy of the deluxe signed limited issue, letters B and Z of 26 specially bound copies signed by Leyland, these volumes additionally signed by Leyland on the title pages and deriving from his personal collection. There were also 300 unsigned cloth copies, the vast majority of which were sold to libraries. Winston Leyland (b.1940) was a leading figure in American LGBT publishing and won the Stonewall Book Award in 1980. He established the Gay Sunshine Press in 1975, which was notable for its pioneering anthologies of gay writing from other cultures, and his Gay Sunshine Journal (1970-82) was particularly influential for its interviews with prominent gay writers of the era. Gay Roots was produced to celebrate and anthologise these endeavours, advertised as "an anthology encyclopaedic in scale, Gay Roots collects the best writings from the turbulent early 1970's–the very beginning of modern gay liberation–right up to the present day. Work from Gay Sunshine Journal–the groundbreaking tabloid–that served as a forum and catalyst for the revolution underway–appears together with some of the most catalytic gay writing published by Gay Sunshine Press, the oldest continuing gay book publisher in the United States. Tennessee Williams wrote in 1977 of Gay Sunshine: 'The only completely literate and serious Gay Journal with which I'm acquainted.' Five books in one, with sections on 'Gay History,' 'Gay Sex and Politics,' 'Gay Biography and Literary Essays,' 'Gay Fiction,' and 'Gay Poetry,' Gay Roots is intended for every gay person desiring to reclaim a rich cultural tradition."

        The Bottom of the Harbor [with LEC Monthly Newsletter]

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1991. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Abbott, Berenice. Number 33 of 250, quarto size, 249 pp., signed by Joseph Mitchell. Joseph Quincy Mitchell (1908-1996), although born in the south (North Carolina) moved to New York City after graduation from college and after stints with several NY newspapers, landed a job as a staff writer for "The New Yorker"; he was known for his "carefully written portraits of eccentrics and people on the fringes of society" (per Wiki). "'The Bottom of the Harbor' comprises six narratives that first appeared in the New Yorker. They tell of waterfront life, of deserted rooms in an abandoned hotel in lower Manhattan, of a once-thriving community on the south shore of Staten Island, of Sloppy Louie's, of fish and fishermen and the bottom of the harbor. But underneath the surface lies Mitchell's constant theme - the depths of the unconscious. His writings are imbued with a symbolism notably rare in this genre of literature. Five photographs by Berenice Abbott, one of America's leading photographers, were selected to complement the text." In 1929 Abbott returned to New York from Paris and "concentrated on depicting the city's changing character and explored the types of scenes and individuals described in Joseph Mitchell's essays." (Quotes from LEC newsletter.) ***DESCRIPTION: Original quarter black Nigerian oasis goatskin with black Irish linen over boards, backstrip stamped in gilt, white endpapers, five photogravures including frontis, Monotype Bell type, paper is mould-made stock from Cartiere Enrico Magnani, quarto size (11 7/8" by 9"), 249 pp., limited edition, this number 33 of 250 copies, signed by author Joseph Mitchell.

        Needful Things

      Viking (1991), New York - 690 pages. A novel set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine. The premise is that a demon or perhaps the Devil himself sets up shop where he sells the items people most covet, like a Sandy Koufax baseball card, for absurdly low prices. Mayhem then ensues. First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a very good dust jacket (scuffing to covers). This copy is inscribed to King's friend and fellow baseball fan, the evolutionary paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould. Sometimes as a bookseller, a book makes your humble cataloguer sad. This is such an instance. Clearly King had great affection for Gould, beyond a shared love of baseball, even if they were passionate about different teams (a rivalry that played out in their books: see Gould, Wonderful Life, footnote on page 285, and the acknowledgements page of King's The Tommyknockers). But alas, Gould left us too soon and his books are now destined for other owners, a situation that Gould, as a book collector, well understood. The inscription reads, 'For Steve and Deborah Gould - with lots of love to [the children] as well. Steve, I know you don't believe in the devil, but I'm sure you DO believe that, if there WAS such a creature, he would undoubtedly ensnare the souls of young boys by offering them Brooklyn Dodgers baseball cards cheap! Love you guys. Steven King. 9/14/91.' This novel was published on September 30, 1991; given that the inscription is dated two weeks earlier, it is almost certainly one of King's author copies. It is hard to imagine that there is a better copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
