        A Song of Ice and Fire. Comprising: A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast of Crows, and A Dance of Dragons.

      New York, NY: Bantam, 1996-2011. SIGNED FIRST US EDITIONS. Five volumes. Octavo, pp.694; 761;973; 753, [17] preview chapter; 1016. All in unclipped pictorial dust-wrappers; designed and illustrated by Tom Hallman, Stephen Youll, Jamie S Youll, David Stevenson, and Larry Rostant. Volumes one to three bound in publisher's paper-covered boards with author's signature debossed to front board, titles to spine. Volumes four in similar paper-covered boards, with no signature to front board. Again, volume five in similar paper-covered boards, with ornamental gilt device to front board. Internally pristine, with author's signature to the title page of each volume. Bindings are presentable and tight. The dust-jackets are all clean and attractive, with the first two showing nigh-imperceptible signs of shelfwear. Martin was already a prominent author of science fiction and fantasy when he began what has become the tremendously popular "A Song of Ice and Fire" sequence in 1991, having worked on the extraordinary "Twilight Zone", won three Hugos, two Nebulas, and a World Fantasy Award, and won particular praise for his short stories. His sudden universal acclaim in the field of doorstep fantasy novels is therefore both surprising, and not at all surprising. It would take until 1996 for the first entry in the series, "A Game of Thrones" to reach publication, five years from Martin's first attempt, a time period which would become familiar to fans of the series. Praised and condemned for their textured depiction of the nuance of character and moral ambiguity, the novels have been adapted into an award winning HBO series, which continues to dominate ratings around the world. Many of its lines and characters have been adopted in popular culture, and one need only say "Winter is coming" or "You know nothing" to evoke the atmosphere of the work in many listeners. It is inspired by Martin's understanding of the realities of history and warfare, drawing on the War of the Roses, Walter Scott's Ivanhoe, and a number of other depictions of the grim reality of life on and off the battlefield in a feudal setting - rendered all the more interesting by Martin's own conscientious objection to the war in Vietnam, and his continuing insistence that his works do not glorify violence, though this latter claim is somewhat overshadowed by controversies concerning the depiction of violence in the television adaptation.This set includes all the currently extant novels in the sequence, with at least two more scheduled to appear at an unknown future date; however, it is worth noting that the series was originally envisioned as a trilogy, and so, like Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", it might be the case that it eventually spans more novels than currently projected.

        Altar Book for Górecki.

      Middletown, CT: Price, Robin, 1996. Quarto-sized wooden triptych hinged with vellum strips. With original Polish text calligraphed by Paul Shaw. Titling and the English translation are letterpress printed by Robin Price in Guild Samson uncial and Perpetua. This work is Price's response to Górecki's Symphony No. 3, which is also known as the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs. In it, the composer used three texts for each of the movements: a fifteenth-century Lamentation of the Virgin Mary to her Son on the cross; a short prayer written by an eighteen-year-old girl facing death in a Gestapo prison in Poland; and a nineteenth-century Polish folk song that concerns a mother's mourning for her son lost in battle. At the time, Price was revisiting her Polish ancestry, and so her work, according to her catalogue raisonné, became for her "a reflection on the known and the unknown, on presence and loss." She chose the image of the phoenix to embody the idea of "loss and the mitigation of pain through the strength of the spirit," and she incorporated images from a seventeenth-century ornithological work by Francis Willughby, together with woodcuts by Keiji Shinohara depicting flames. The whole structure is housed in a cherry box with beveled lid. An imaginative and deeply personal artist's book. (Witthus 55).

Printing by Wild Carrot Letterpress with Renaissance Roman type by Hermann Zapf on Rives BFK paper. Text in English with Persian calligraphy as well.

Bound in cream linen-covered boards with coptic binding. In custom box with glass sculpture laid into the bottom. Numbered. Signed by the translator. Lauren Marshall, Limited-Edition Books as Multi-Media Art: The Work of Vincent FitzGerald & Co. displayed at Columbia: "FitzGerald began his company years ago to bring artists and writers together, facilitating collaboration in an age where isolation was defining art. By breaking away from the competitive climate fueled by art-as-big-business, FitzGerald and his company seek to resurrect the spirit of Paris in the twenties, when writers, artists and musicians worked together to produce ballets, operas, even books. Each book involves the collaboration of a minimum of 15 people working together on one project, sometimes over a period of years. Virtually every known method of creating visual art is represented in these books. In the case of some, modern techniques, such as computer-generated images, are used in combination with etching and engraving."Divan e Shams is the result of one such collaborative effort. Zahra Partovi selected Rumi poems and translated his words into English. The poetry was then artistically interpreted by fifteen artists (Joan Busing, Sandy Gellis, Elizabeth Harington, Bernard Kirschenbaum, T. Kurahara, James Nares, Dorotha Rockburne, Betye Saar, Annette Senneby, Michelle Stuart, Peter Thomason, Judith Turner, Marjorie Van Dyke, Joan Vennum, Susan Weil). Zahra Partovi, translator: "I have been fortunate to have seen the face and heard the voice of that trust in the works produced by publisher Vincent FitzGerald, many visual artists, and composers who have worked on Rumi's poetry through my translations."Working with Rumi's poetry and the magnitude of his thinking is a humbling experience. A sense of grave responsibility and honor surrounds the act of translating the masterpieces of such a writer. My hopes and aspirations have always been the simplest and the hardest: To arrive as close to the original writing as to make the translator an invisible messenger bringing to the reader a poet's voice. Whether one delivers a secular or a sacred text, the act of translation remains a sacred act."Betye Saar, artist: "Fire was slow to start. My earlier ideas and sketches fizzled out. Vincent was very patient. ... At the time, Malibu Canyon was experiencing 'fire storms', so one afternoon I carefully made a fire in my hibachi and photographed the flames. "Bernard Kirschenbaum, artist: "Rumi's words have a universality that is relevant today. I use computers in my work and using a computer to illustrate these words seemed to me an interesting pairing. Randomness is a very universal concept and has been one of my interests. I developed a computer program to generate a series of random geometric shapes that used Rumi's birth date and his death date as random seeds. The result depended on Rumi."

        Dancing After Hours

      NY: Knopf. 1996. His final collection of stories, nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award. This copy is inscribed to Kurt Vonnegut: "For Kurt/ old friend, soldier, with my love/ Andre/ 27 March 96." Again, an excellent association. Dubus's calling Vonnegut "soldier" is telling: Dubus enlisted in the Marines in 1958 and spent six years in the military, and his service remained important to him throughout his life, helping to define his moral universe. Vonnegut's time as a soldier, specifically as a POW in WWII, obviously informed his own moral universe, as well as his masterwork, Slaughterhouse-Five. Dancing After Hours was Dubus's last book of fiction before he died in 1999. Small smudge to the foredge, near fine in a near fine dust jacket. On the rear panel, Vonnegut has written the phone number and an abbreviated address for the Indian Mountain School in Connecticut, where his daughter Lily was a student. He has also laid in a bank receipt as a bookmark. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine.

        Living Faith Signed***

      Times Books, New York, NY 1996 - Signed "Jimmy Carter" on bookplate attached to the first blank page in black ink. Very small publisher remainder dot on top page edges. Jimmy Carter aspired to make Government "competent and compassionate," responsive to the American people and their expectations. His achievements were notable, but in an era of rising energy costs, mounting inflation, and continuing tensions, it was impossible for his administration to meet these high expectations. Carter, who has rarely used his full name--James Earl Carter, Jr.--was born October 1, 1924, in Plains, Georgia. Peanut farming, talk of politics, and devotion to the Baptist faith were mainstays of his upbringing. Upon graduation in 1946 from the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, Carter married Rosalynn Smith. The Carters have three sons, John William (Jack), James Earl III (Chip), Donnel Jeffrey (Jeff), and a daughter, Amy Lynn. After seven years' service as a naval officer, Carter returned to Plains. In 1962 he entered state politics, and eight years later he was elected Governor of Georgia. Among the new young southern governors, he attracted attention by emphasizing ecology, efficiency in government, and the removal of racial barriers. Carter announced his candidacy for President in December 1974 and began a two-year campaign that gradually gained momentum. At the Democratic Convention, he was nominated on the first ballot. He chose Senator Walter F. Mondale of Minnesota as his running mate. Carter campaigned hard against President Gerald R. Ford, debating with him three times. Carter won by 297 electoral votes to 241 for Ford. Carter worked hard to combat the continuing economic woes of inflation and unemployment. By the end of his administration, he could claim an increase of nearly eight million jobs and a decrease in the budget deficit, measured in percentage of the gross national product. Unfortunately, inflation and interest rates were at near record highs, and efforts to reduce them caused a short recession. Carter could point to a number of achievements in domestic affairs. He dealt with the energy shortage by establishing a national energy policy and by decontrolling domestic petroleum prices to stimulate production. He prompted Government efficiency through civil service reform and proceeded with deregulation of the trucking and airline industries. He sought to improve the environment. His expansion of the national park system included protection of 103 million acres of Alaskan lands. To increase human and social services, he created the Department of Education, bolstered the Social Security system, and appointed record numbers of women, blacks, and Hispanics to Government jobs. In foreign affairs, Carter set his own style. His championing of human rights was coldly received by the Soviet Union and some other nations. In the Middle East, through the Camp David agreement of 1978, he helped bring amity between Egypt and Israel. He succeeded in obtaining ratification of the Panama Canal treaties. Building upon the work of predecessors, he established full diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China and completed negotiation of the SALT II nuclear limitation treaty with the Soviet Union. There were serious setbacks, however. The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan caused the suspension of plans for ratification of the SALT II pact. The seizure as hostages of the U. S. embassy staff in Iran dominated the news during the last 14 months of the administration. The consequences of Iran's holding Americans captive, together with continuing inflation at home, contributed to Carter's defeat in 1980. Even then, he continued the difficult negotiations over the hostages. Iran finally released the 52 Americans the same day Carter left office.

        Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk

      New York: Grove Press. (1996). First. First edition. Small quarto. Both the pages and the page edges are slightly toned, else about fine in near fine dustwrapper. Publisher's Promotional book card for the 1996 book release party at the Gershwin Hotel. Nicely Inscribed by Legs McNeil to Jack Walls, writ large and using most of the half-title: "Jack, I'll never forget last Night! you ARE THE BEST! Love, Legs." Walls is referenced in this book in the "Cast of Characters" as: "Playwright. Screenwriter. Companion of the late Robert Mapplethorpe, co-author of 'Somebody's Sin', a feature length film about the early years of Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe in New York." He is also known as the striking black man who seems most often to appear in many of Mapplethorpe's nude portraits. Legs McNeil, co-founder of the seminal publication "Punk Magazine", is widely credit for introducing the term "punk" into the mainstream lexicon, and "Please Kill Me" provides a crash course in the mythology of the period. Chronologically organized from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, the book analyzes and eulogizes the punk phenomenon through first-hand "oral history" anecdotes from many of the people who were intimately involved in the scene, including Mapplethorpe, Walls, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, Dee Dee Ramone, Richard Hell, Debby Harry, Danny Fields, Lou Reed, and many others. A great association copy of the definitive oral history of Punk. .
