He is, to use a word unhappily fallen into disrepute, a politician, though one distinguished from lesser practitioners of his calling mainly by his unwavering faith in his ultimate objective, ending white minority rule" (New York Times).

        William Gibson's Handmade Working Copy of the Shooting Script for Johnny Mnemonic with Related Materials

      Np: XXXIII Limited Partnership, 1994. 4to, loose leaves housed in an altered three ring binder bound in rigid circuit boards, with additional material laid. Signed on the title page by Gibson. & & Artists' book created by William Gibson during the shooting of the Robert Longo film Johnny Mnemonic, which had been based on Gibson's excellent short story of the same name. The binder is strikingly bound in circuit boards, with additional elements pasted on, including photographs, holograph notes on duct tape, and a postcard. Inserted in the back is correspondence, call sheets, original computer printouts of script revisions, some annotated, and a large poster print of a pre-production drawing from the film. & & The near past of the nineties never seemed so far from us now. Originally conceived of as being a low budget art film - in an interview which predated the film's US release in Wired, Longo said that it "started out as an arty 1½-million-dollar movie, and it became a 30-million-dollar movie because we couldn't get a million and a half." Bankrolled by Sony, the film was hacked apart and roughly edited into a different film as that company underestimated the public. According to a 1998 interview with Gibson in The Peak, "Basically what happened was it was taken away and re-cut by the American distributor in the last month of its pre-release life, and it went from being a very funny, very alternative piece of work to being something that had been very unsuccessfully chopped and cut into something more mainstream." The intersection of Cyberpunk and mainstream entertainment became a critical flop. An invaluable and unique record of the meeting point of cyberpunk with mainstream culture.

        Essays on Economics and Economists

      Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1994. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the Nobel Prize-winning economist Coase on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. This is a series of 15 essays written by the 1991 Nobel laureate in economics. Unlike most such collections, the essays are not primarily about Coase's work. The first half of the book contains essays on methodology: what economists do and how they do it. Coase's explanations are thought-provoking. As Coase demonstrates, economics in its theoretical and empirical work is more normative than most economists would prefer to believe. Simple principles are often ignored, replaced by complex ones beyond the ken of economics. The remaining essays are biographical sketches that focus primarily on famous English economists such as Adam Smith and Alfred Marshall. These essays provide insight into the roots of modern economics.
