        Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes

      New York: Theatre Communications Group, 1993. First editions of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Octavo, 2 volumes.Each are fine in fine dust jackets and both are signed by the author. Laid in is a Voices of Literature catalogue, where these books were signed. Rather uncommon, especially signed.Kushner's most famous work, a self-described "gay fantasia" describes an angel crashing to earth to summon a gay man dying from AIDS from his sick bed as a kind of prophet. The story takes place in the mid 1980's, when young gay men were expected to tend to the ill among them, while simultaneously facing their own mortality. "I struggle with the question of whether there is or there isn't anything beyond this material world, and I've never found an answer that feels in any way definitive. I can't leave the question alone either.

        The War Papers, Volume 1, At the Admiralty, September 1939 - May 1940, Inscribed and dated by the author

      London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1993. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. This is the British first edition of the first volume of The War Papers, inscribed and dated by the author. The inked inscription in five lines on the title page reads: "To Richard and Daniel Goldstein / with the author's regards and all good wishes / Martin Gilbert / London / 1st October 1998". The first three lines are inked above the title, the city and date are inked beside the publisher's device. The War Papers are the companion document volumes accompanying Volume VI of Churchill's Official Biography. This volume contains documents from the outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939 to May 1940, the month that Churchill became Prime Minister and Germany invaded France and the low countries. There were both British and U.S. editions, both now out of print. This British first edition is considerably more scarce and highly sought than the U.S. first edition, which is similar in appearance. These Heinemann War Papers volumes - particularly Volumes 1 & 2 - seem destined to rise inexorably in price just like the now quite expensive Volume V Companions that precede them. This copy is not only inscribed and dated by the author, but near fine in a near fine dust jacket. The red cloth binding is square, clean, and tight, retaining sharp corners, a nicely rounded spine, and bright spine gilt. Minor wrinkling at the spine ends is the only flaw noted. The contents are bright and clean with no spotting or previous ownership marks other than the author's inscription. The dust jacket is bright, clean, and unclipped, with no losses or tears. Notably, the red dust jacket spine is entirely unfaded, with no color shift between the jacket faces and spine. The only dust jacket flaw noted is a minor scratch to the lower portion of the rear dust jacket face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        An Autobiography

      New York: Random House, 1993. First edition. Thick folio, brown cloth with large red type, glassine wrapper. Signed and dated in the year of publication in 1993. Illustrated with 284 exquisite black & white photographs. Fine in a fine glassine wrapper. With the publication of An Autobiography, a massive, very personal collection of his photographs, Richard Avedon attempted to redefine and reposition his life's work… This exquisitely printed book weaves his thematic obsessions into a kind of narrative. It's meant to be read cinematically, so that each photograph is considered as part of a whole story: 'the whole,' Avedon explains, 'being my life in photography" (David Ansen, Newsweek). Autobiography reveals that "inside the celebrity portraitist and fêted fashion photographer Richard Avedon, there are two other photographers struggling to get out— the 'artist' and the political nonconformist" (Parr & Badger I:252).

        A Collection of 25 Candid Photos of William S. Burroughs

      1993. An archive of 25 candid color photos of William S. Burroughs taken on September 5, 1993. Each measuring 6" x 4". Fine. The photos include shots of Burroughs around his home in Lawrence, Kansas: by himself reading an art book, sprinkling food into an outdoor fish pond, and fiddling with a drum stick. There are also several group shots with Burroughs that include his business manager, James Grauerholz; poet and performance artist, John Giorno; and several other unidentified people. Giorno was a former companion of Andy Warhol and starred in his experimental 1965 film, Sleep. Giorno met Burroughs and Brion Gysin in the mid-1960s and was inspired by their cut-up and montage techniques. He later toured with Burroughs in the 1970s for a series of poetry readings and they remained lifelong friends. The stamp of his artist collective, "Giorno Poetry Systems," can be found on the verso of each photo. A pleasing collection of personal images of this legendary writer. .

"With the publication of An Autobiography, a massive, very personal collection of his photographs, Richard Avedon attempted to redefine and reposition his life's work This exquisitely printed book weaves his thematic obsessions into a kind of narrative. It's meant to be read cinematically, so that each photograph is considered as part of a whole story: 'the whole,' Avedon explains, 'being my life in photography" (David Ansen, Newsweek). Autobiography reveals that "inside the celebrity portraitist and fêted fashion photographer Richard Avedon, there are two other photographers struggling to get out— the 'artist' and the political nonconformist" (Parr & Badger I:252).
