Rome, (Nuova Stampa), [1981]. The screenplay by Amidei, Ferreri and Foutz (in English) for the 1981 film based on Bukowski's stories. Bukowski's collection Erections, Ejaculations, Exhibitions and General Tales of Ordinary Madness was published in 1972; there wasn't a collection entitled Tales of Ordinary Madness until 1983. Ben Gazzara starred in the well-received film, which won a number of awards in Italy where it was made: the screenplay won a David di Donatello award, roughly the equivalent of the Oscar, and Marco Ferreri also won a Best Director David, as well as a Golden Goblet and Silver Ribbon for Best Director, Italy's other major cinema awards. This copy is signed by Bukowski on the front cover. Velobound, with gray cardstock covers and a typed label on the front cover. Near fine. Scarce: we have never encountered another copy of it, let alone a copy signed by Bukowski. [#031344] $3,500
(Chicago), (Literary Times-Cyfoeth), 1965. "Overlooked" poems by Bukowski: a self-selected collection of thirteen poems published in magazines but never previously collected in book form. With a "foreward" [sic] by the author. One of 500 copies, Bukowski's only self-published book. Stapled wrappers; near fine. [#033001] $650
[c. 1983]. Printed portrait of Bukowski by Crumb, a color version of which was used as the cover to the 1983 Black Sparrow edition of Bukowski's Bring Me Your Love. One sheet, folded to make four 8-1/2" x 11-1/4" pages; all but the cover page with the portrait are blank. Lower corner crease to front cover; several small stains, mostly on the three blank pages. Presumably some sort of production proof for the Black Sparrow edition. Near fine. [#031662] $150
