Whilst Pullman has won the Carnegie Medal, the Guardian Children's Fiction Award, the Smarties Prize and Children's Book of the Year at the British Book Awards it was only the final instalment of the trilogy (which went onto win the prestigious Whitbred Prize, being the first Children's book ever to do so) that seems to have garnered Pullman the popular acclaim he undoubtedly deserves. Signature is genuine, (I can e-mail a photo of myself with Mr Pullman should proof be required). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Thurber's Dogs. Suite for Orchestra after Drawings by James Thurber. Movement VI: Hunting Hounds. Autograph musical manuscript sketches in condensed score of almost the entire final movement of the work, consisting of music for sections B-N, i.e., pp. 111-137 of the published full score

      Folio, ca. 356 x 278 mm. Unbound. 9 leaves notated in pencil on one side of each leaf of 18-stave AZTEC C-18 music manuscript paper. A working manuscript, with erasures, alterations and cancellations. Together with: A copy of the published full score of the movement, i.e., pp. 107-138, and a 1-1/2 page printed commentary by the composer discussing the background of the work and briefly describing the music: "I should say, however, that as I was working on the last movement, I found myself thinking as much about the fox as about the hunting hounds. This, coupled with the fact that I recently acquired a recording of background music from the old movie serials that I used to go to as a kid, probably accounts for the quite ungentlemanly, almost lurid quality of the chase music." . "Thurber's Dogs was commissioned for the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus and the Thurber House to commemorate the 100th birthday anniversary of author James Thurber. It was completed on August 13, 1994. The first performances took place on December 2 and 4, 1994; the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus was conducted, respectively, by the composer and Timothy Russell, the orchestra's Music Director. The work has been recorded by the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus for release in the fall of 1995." From Mr. Schickele's commentary accompanying the manuscript A composition student of Roy Harris, Darius Milhaud, Persichetti and Bergsma, "Schickele has become the leading American musical satirist, giving concerts throughout the USA in which he lectures, sings, conducts and plays as guest soloist with symphony orchestras or with his own ensemble. The humorous compositions range from outrageous parodies, such as the cantata Iphigenia in Brooklyn, to ingenious combinations of antithetical styles, as in Blaues Gras (Bluegrass Cantata), and are full of surprising violations of familiar styles, musical forms and phrase structures, harmonic conventions and orchestration. Schickele’s commentaries and his mock-scholarly The Definitive Biography of P.D.Q. Bach (1807–1742)? (New York, 1976) juxtapose incongruities from contemporary culture with relatively austere academic and classical canons, and are reflective of the eclectic musical menu of the modern American public. One of the most widely performed and published of contemporary composers working in many different styles...". Deane L. Root in Grove online Thurber (1894-1961), one of the foremost American humorists of the 20th century, had a great love of dogs and included them in many of his drawings, calling them "sound creatures in a crazy world."

        Collection of Roller Derby Posters

      - 11 1 2 x 17 1 2 original posters. Collection of seventeen Roller Derby posters from the Bleeding Heartland Roller Derby. Near fine. The Women’s Roller Derby Collection contains a large range of artistic styles: horror, punk music, 60s advertising, underground comics, classic B-movies. Other influences include surrealism, politics, photorealism and Saturday morning cartoons, art of the 1980s, cereal box art, MAD magazine, "dark designs," tattoo and hot-rod inspired works. One artist explained that hot rod/rockability culture explains derby’s current popularity. Visual cues from the past infused in a new modern sensibility – in other words, using the familiar with the new to create a sort or revisionist visual history and mystique for roller derby.PROVENANCE: From Artist’s Matt Traughber’s personal collection. Roller Derby is unique as a sport, as a structure and as a social phenomenon. Over the last two decades, a new evolution in women’s athletics has been taking hold across the United States. Fueled by adrenaline and dedication, with roots back to the early 20th century, women’s roller derby is making a frantic comeback on a grass-roots and national level. State to state, leagues are forming for the love of the skate. Skill and devotion set the pace for an exciting and empowering display of athletic skill and prowess in a physically aggressively all-woman sport. The famed artist Robert Williams coined the tern "lowbrow" to describe the American Art Movement that was taking hold in the late 1980s and early 90s. Williams who’d come into his own by working for car builder Ed "Big Daddy" Roth and hooking up with many from the Zap Comix crew (Robert Crumb, Stanley Mouse, Rick Griffin, and S. Clay Wilson) was gaining ground with highly sexualized oil-rich tales about sex, violence, drugs and car culture. When Williams started Juxtapos Art & Culture magazine in 1994, his purpose was to unearth underground and outlaw artists like himself. Instead, he created a world where artists, illustrators and pop culture pundits all wanted to live. This new art movement shunned the conceptual and abstract, embracing art school groupthink. Instead, it was inspired by B-movies, horror and science fiction films, comic books, tattoos, hot rods, pin up art and pop culture.Roller derby, a grassroots movement, embraces the same ethics and values held by Williams. Its DIY spirit and talent, which might not be generally accepted by mainstream, thrive in roller derby art. Derby is the meeting ground where these influences merge with athletics; roller derby can be considered an offshoot of an already thriving subculture and it continues, as does lowbrow, to seep into mainstream.

        The Bachelder Papers: Gettysburg in Their Own Words (Complete 3 Volume Set)

      Morningside House, Inc.. As New with No dust jacket as issued. 1994. Reprint. Hardcover. This specific set of 3 hardback books is in like new condition with hard board covers that havew sharp edges/corners with no bumping or scuffing and have tight bindings. The pages are clean, crisp, unmarked and uncreased with no underlining, highlighting, or notes. We package all books in custom cardboard book boxes for shipment and ship daily with tracking numbers.; "In his thirty-one-year association with the Gettysburg battlefield, Bachelder amassed a huge amount of correspondence with veterans which, luckily, he and his family preserved. These included letters from Meade, Longstreet, Humphreys, Warren, Early, Hunt, Howard and virtually every key player in the struggle who survived into the post-war period. Bachelder’s correspondents, however, were not confined to field and general officers. They included privates, non-commissioned officers and line officers. This mass of letters provided a remarkable eyewitness record of one of America’s largest and most important battles. Incredibly, Bachelder’s collection languished in obscurity for decades. His wife’s sister donated a large portion of the collection to the New Hampshire Historical Society in 1921. Here it remained, largely untouched, until the early 1960s when the documents were rediscovered by historian Edwin Coddington during his research for his magnificent study The Gettysburg Campaign, published in 1968. David and Audrey Ladd, with the help of Dr. Richard Sauers, have transcribed the entire collection, and added notes as well as an index. Also included are nearly fifty plates containing exact reproductions of maps and diagrams that some veterans drew for Bachelder to explain a specific action or point. The correspondence is arranged chronologically, but the very complete index allows the reader seeking a specific subject or correspondent to locate it/him quickly.These three volumes are accompanied by black and white reproductions of Bachelder’s 1876 three-map set on each day of the battle, showing the positions of every regiment and battery, and a four-map set of the July 3 cavalry battle. A square grid is laid over each map and the maps are referenced extensively in the notes to assist the reader in locating positions. These books should be on the shelf of anyone with an interest in the battle of Gettysburg. They are not only an indispensable research tool for any scholar or student of the battle, but the letters are fascinating reading in themselves, providing an unforgettable image of one of the epic events in American history."; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 2081 pages .

        Signed NRA Target With over 50 Hits

      1994. unbound. American novelist, poet and essayist. A primary figure of the Beat generation, he is considered by many to be "one of the most politically trenchant, culturally influential, and innovative artists of the twentieth century". Outstanding signed memento which captures the essence of Burroughs second love after writing - collecting his visits to the firing range: A National Rifle Association Official Army "L" Target, 14" X 13", for 25 yard slow and time fire, of which Burroughs, using a 22 caliber rifle, at age 80, has hit the target over 50 times, including 30 shots through the black bulls eye center. Burroughs has signed: "Such As It Is...March 4, 1994." Additionally signed by Spanish writer, critic and radical socio-political activist Jose Perez, best known for his critique of the 50th anniversary edition of "Naked Lunch". There is approximately a 20% loss of paper on the right hand side margin of the target due to its hasty removal upon completion of the shoot. This in no way detracts from the importance of this item which is otherwise in fine condition. In 1951 Burroughs accidentally shot his second wife Joan Vollmer in the head while drunk, an event that deeply permeated all of his writings. Years later, after a trip to the firing range, Hunter S. Thompson remarked: "William was a shootist. He shot like he wrote - with extreme precision and no fear.%u201D

        (Miniature) Seven Ages of Man

      (Berkeley, CA: Poole Press, 1994). (7)ff. One of 45 copies signed by the artist, designer, and innovator, Maryline Poole Adams. Jacques's speech from "As You Like It" is illustrated with a tabbed, movable picture for each age of man. The schoolboy with his "shining morning face" walks to school, the soldier brandishes his sword in a pop-up tavern, and the justice, "full of wise saws," shakes his finger at a group of children who nod in unison. Most intriguing is a deathbed scene, which mysteriously develops color and some surprises. Mint in pictorial cloth. Housed in a double-door opening, wooden model of the Globe Theater. (Bradbury, p. 185). (2 1/2 by 2 1/8; 63x53mm).

        Pale Fire A Novel. [and] Pale Fire A poem in four cantos from the novel of the same title

      San Francisco: Arion Press, 1994. 2 vols, large thick 8vo and oblong 12mo, 284, (1, bio. and 1, colophon); 81, (1, colophon)pp. Original purple silk, inset gold cloth lettering disks, brown slipcase. As new. Limited to 200 copies, this is a brilliantly creative presentation of NabokovÕs two fictional authors, the poet John Shade and the professor Charles Kinbote. Shade is the author of "Pale Fire" a poem which Kinbote explicates in a commentary. They create an interwoven story in which the lives of poet and critic are interlinked. Using internal evidence, Hoyem has established the lineation of the poem and recreated the set of index cards that the novel describes as Shade's manuscript. Rare in commerce and at auction, copies seldom occur for sale.
