        Drum. Et sted i Irland - SIGNED COPY.

      Copenhagen: Gyldendal, 1996. Oblonged 4to. Original cloth with photoillustrated dustjacket. 95 pp. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photos. Mininal wear to corner upper right of jacket.. SIGNED by Krass Clement / With DEDICATION from Krass Clement to Danish photographer colleague dated 1996. - Contemporary signed copies of Clement's book are not seen often. Parr & Badger , Vol. II, pp. 81. Photographed in a single evening with only 3 rolls of 35 mm film. Exceptional signed copy of one of the most hard to find and most sought after Danish photobooks. From Parr and Badger: "The most notable thing about Drum is not that the bulk of the book was photographed in a single evening with only three rolls of 35 mm film, but that it is, nevertheless, so good. The evening in question was spent in a pub in Drum in rural Ireland and Clement concentrated on one principal character -- a hunched, weatherbeaten old man, who sits alone with his drink, apparently lost in his own thoughts while the life of the pub goes on unheedingly around him.The gritty black and white photographs, in traditional photojournalist mode, might have been taken at any moment during the last 70 years. It is not style, however, but quality of observation that makes this book so relevant to the depiction of modern life". First edition

        Screenplay of Tim O'Brien's Going After Cacciato

      1996. Typescript of O'Nan's screenplay based on O'Brien's National Book Award-winning Vietnam War novel. Two clean copies, each signed by O'Nan on the title page. 126 pages each, and in a Kinko's box that is hand-labeled "Going After Cacciato/ 27 August 96/ Original - Top/ Copy - Bottom." The screenplays are fine; the box has two broken corners. The film of Cacciato is reportedly in development, directed by Nick Cassevetes, but apparently not with an O'Nan screenplay. O'Brien provided a jacket blurb for O'Nan's highly regarded Vietnam novel The Names of the Dead. .

        The Girl Next Door

      Woodstock: Overlook Connection Press. (1996). The limited edition of this horror novel by the award-winning author, loosely based on events in a notorious murder case in 1965 and made into a film in 2007. This edition has an 11-page introduction by Stephen King that did not appear in the trade edition, several Afterwords, and an interview with Ketchum by Stanley Wiater about the writing of this book. This was a contributor's copy, and is signed by Ketchum, King, Wiater, Christopher Golden, Lucy Taylor, Edward Lee, Philip Nutman and Neal McPheeters. There were 500 numbered copies and 52 lettered copies, but this copy is marked P/C and is housed in a wooden box with a hinged door complete with door handle, with leather title and author and publisher labels. From the library of one of the contributors, Stanley Wiater, according to whom the publisher made these boxes only for the contributors' copies. Thus, although the colophon doesn't specify it as such, this would apparently be one of 8 copies only, signed by King, Ketchum et al. An extremely small limitation for a collectible book by any author, but especially for a book with a Stephen King contribution. The book is fine without dust jacket, as issued; the wooden box has a few surface scratches and is very nearly fine. An unusual publishing production and a horror rarity. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        The Fallen Man (Original manuscript, with author's hand corrections)

      New York: HarperCollins, 1996. Tony Hillerman's original typescript for his novel "The Fallen Man," with his original holograph corrections in ink. Housed in a plain orange publisher's box, with a memo from Hillerman, on his stationery, affixed to the lid. The history of the manuscript is explained in three documents that accompany the typescript: (1) a letter from the editorial staff at HarperCollins, on the publisher's stationery, stating that this the most recent copy-edited typescript, (2) an autograph note on publisher's memo stationery from Hillerman's editor Eamon Dolan, asking Hillerman to provide final changes, and thanking him for providing jacket copy, which he says is superior to his, and will appear "virtually unchanged on the book's flaps," and (3) an autograph note on Hillerman's personal stationery to a bookseller friend, stating that it is his copy of the final corrected typescript (which was ultimately returned to him by the publisher, after the changes were made for the book). Finally, the box has a plain white label affixed to the front panel, on which the author has written in holograph ink: "Fallen Man" (corrected from 'Fallen Men') - copy edited and revised ms.," followed by the author's Albuquerque address from that time. Hillerman is well-known for making constant revisions to his novels, and in many instances the endings to his books are found to be changed completely between the issue of the proof and the hardcover edition, and even between the hardcover edition and the paperback edition. A unique item, and evidence of a completed work from one of the key mystery writers of his generation, one unique in his perspective regarding American Indian culture and the American Southwest.

        Genesis. No. 21 of 200 copies

      San Francisco: Arion Press, 1996. Arion Press. Genesis. Translated from the Hebrew by Robert Alter. Largo folio, printed in two colors on handmade paper. No. 21 of 200 copies, signed by the translator at the foot of the colophon. Original two-color frontispiece etching by Michael Mazur, signed by the artist. 412 x 293 mm. Original purple handmade paper wrappers, cloth chemise and slipcase. Prospectus included. Mint copy."Designed as a large folio, the Arion edition is a typographic monument that balances the Hebrew and English texts on facing pages . . . Robert Alter's translation of Genesis is an experiment in re-presenting the Bible--and, above all, biblical narrative prose--in a language that conveys with some precision the semantic nuances and the lively orchestration of literary effects of the Hebrew and at the same time has stylistic and rhythmic integrity as literary English" (Prospectus).

        The Illustrated Long Walk To Freedom, first edition thus - superb SIGNED and DATED presentation copy to former Canadian Olympic Committee CEO Carol Anne Letheren in a custom made, Olympic themed clamshell box (made by the Chelsea Bindery)

      Little Brown and company 1996 - First edition thus. Large quarto, not price clipped in transparent dustwrapper as issued. A chance to own an important SIGNED and DATED copy of the Illustrated Long Walk To Freedom. What elevates this particular copy to UNIQUE status is that it was presented to IOC (International Olympic Commitee) member and Canadian Olympic Committee CEO Carol Anne Letheren on 6th November 1996, during the period when the then President Mandela and other prominent Africans were bidding to host the 2004 Olympics. Carol Anne Letheren (1942 - 2001) was a prominent Olympic figure, general sports luminary and member of the International Olympic Committee. She was recognised during her lifetime by many sports halls of fame and was additionally honoured, posthumously, with the prestigious Olympic Order (for further reading, her fascinating story is documented in a well-written biography by Garth Paton). The book itself is in fine condition, unread and fresh, and is a beautiful production full of numerous fascinating colour and black and white photographs - minor bump to top of spine but bright, clean, tight pages. The dustwrapper for the illustrated edition is notoriously fragile, made of delicate, transparent, tracing-paper type material. As a result, the dustwrapper does not age well and on every copy I've handled has a variation of scratches, tears and browning. Pleasingly, this particular dustwrapper fares better than most, but inevitably has a few minor detractions, namely: light toning to the edges and spine, a short closed tear to the bottom front and two very small marks to the back panel. The book and wrapper are both now fully protected for the future from light and dust by being housed in a beautiful, custom made clamshell box by the world-renowned Chelsea Bindery. The box is a standout piece in itself, in 1/4 Moroccan hide with the Olympic rings tooled in gilt to the spine. Velvet lining. We have sold many special Nelson Mandela books over the years and this one is another glorious collector's piece, and - unlike one of a run of the various numbered limited editions - unique. Boldly signed and dated by Mandela to Letheren on an intricately decorated presentation page: a wonderful item of South African, Canadian and indeed world history and surely the centrepiece of any library. ABOUT US: It is our philosophy at N V to provide the astute collector with high quality books for pleasure and investment, whilst offering a service that is always friendly and helpful. EVERY listing has a sharp digital image (or images) of the EXACT book(s) that you are perusing. The accompanying description is meticulous and we guarantee that all items are authentic.
