click for a larger image of item #18289, Anthropology Resource Center Newsletter/Bulletin (Cambridge/Boston), (ARC), (1977-1982). Publication of the "first public-interest anthropology group in the United States," focusing heavily on issues involving the indigenous peoples of Central and South America. Six issues, an incomplete run, as follows: Newsletter Volume 1, No. 1; Bulletin Nos. 4, 5, 7, 8, 10. Near fine. [#018289] $45

click for a larger image of item #31529, I Am an American Fighting Man [Washington, DC], [U.S. Air Force Lithograph Series], [1985]. Number 36 in the U.S. Airforce Lithograph Series. Two images of an American aviator with a stylized map of Vietnam between the two. In the image on the left, the flyer is in uniform; on the right he is dressed in the garb of a POW. "I am an American fighting man" are the first words to the Code of Conduct for the U.S. Fighting Man. Much of that code of conduct concerns what his behavior will be if he becomes a prisoner of war. Number 201 of 500 copies signed by the artist, Jay Ashurst. The artist's printed signature is on the lithograph; the numbered edition has the actual signature in addition. This copy is also signed by four high-profile Vietnam POWs: Brigadier General Robinson "Robbie" Risner, USAF; Colonel Carlyle "Smitty" Harris, USAF; Captain Eugene "Red" McDaniel, USN; and Colonel Warren "Bob" Lilly, USAF. All four were aviators who were shot down and captured and served long terms in North Vietnamese prisons -- three of them over seven years, the fourth just under six. Despite the relatively large limitation, we have found little evidence of copies being available; a copy such as this, signed by four prominent, high-ranking former POWs, is by all appearances exceedingly scarce. The provenance and the names of the POWs have been detailed on the verso. 16" x 20". Very small, shallow stain top margin, one nick along bottom edge, else fine, in original mailing envelope that now bears a bookseller's mailing label. [#031529] $565

San Francisco, Hayoka, (1983). Poetry, much of it related to San Francisco and the Bay Area. Inscribed the author to Pauline Kael: "Dear Pauline, I hope these poems provoke memories. With much affection for all you've said, Bill." Kael lived in the Bay Area and ran a movie theater before moving to New York City, where she became the film critic for The New Yorker. Some discoloration to wrappers and foxing to page edges; very good in wrappers. [#034542] $45

(Climate Fiction)
click for a larger image of item #33880, America City (London), Corvus, (2017). Signed by the author in the month prior to publication. The British scifi author takes on a future America where droughts, hurricanes, and floods have created a humanitarian crisis at the border between northern and southern states, and the politicians find a way to blame Canada. Fine in a fine dust jacket, with a label indicating the book is a "BBC Radio 2 Book Club" selection. Beckett's Eden trilogy was highly praised, and the author -- who is also a sociologist -- is well-regarded for using the science fiction genre as a way to explore social, political, and theological issues. [#033880] $125

June 22, 1988.

click for a larger image of item #29580, Suppose One Were A Fish [Seattle], Incunabla, 2007. The lettered limited edition of this poster, a broadside excerpt from Crowley's 1981 novel Little, Big, issued in conjunction with what was to be the 25th anniversary edition of Crowley's World Fantasy Award-winner, which is still a work-in-progress and has yet to be published. A 24" x 37" poster, with art by Peter Milton, whose haunting drawings, etchings, engravings and prints are to grace the new edition. When Little, Big was first published, Ursula Le Guin famously wrote that "all by itself it calls for a redefinition of fantasy"; Thomas Disch called it "the greatest fantasy novel ever." The literary critic Harold Bloom listed three books by John Crowley, including Little, Big, in his book The Western Canon. Bloom is listed as providing an introduction to the anniversary edition of the novel. One can get a sense, from this poster, of the aesthetic of the anniversary volume. One of 26 lettered copies, this being letter "L," signed by John Crowley, artist Peter Milton, editor John Drummond and book designer John D. Berry. Rolled; else fine. A scarce artifact of a prolonged publishing project and labor of love, associated with one of the best-loved and most highly regarded fantasy novels of all time. [#029580] $750

Inscribed by Dubus to another author (of children's books) who at the time lived in a neighboring town. Also signed in full by Dubus on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. A nice literary association, and a reminder that Dubus was famous for being supportive of, and a mentor to, younger writers: for many years he held a weekly writers' workshop in his home, free of charge, as a way (he said) of giving back for all the help he received from his literary friends and colleagues after his traumatic accident. [#030714] $125

The text of a symposium on American Underground Film, featuring John Cage, Stan Brakhage, Jonas Mekas, and Stan Vanderbeek, and moderated by Jim McGinniss, a University of Cincinnati film professor.

Small marginal notation and stain to one page; near fine in stapled wrappers. [#027360] $135

(Physical Fitness/Natural Movement)
click for a larger image of item #33038, Guide Pratique d'Education Physique Paris, Vuibert at Nony, (1909). The first edition (1909) of this dense, 508 page, illustrated tome by the French naval officer who developed the Natural Method of training that led to the development of the parcours du combatant (military obstacle course). Both the method and the courses fueled the compulsions of a Vietnamese-French orphan turned Paris fire fighter named Raymond Belle, whose legendary physical prowess inspired his son, David Belle, to turn the methods of "parcours" into parkour, which is undergoing a renaissance more than a century after Hebert's insistence that training be fully functional and involve walking, running, jumping, climbing, lifting, throwing, swimming, balance, and techniques for defense and rescue. As best as we can tell, this was Hebert's first book, and it was followed by a series of volumes on the Natural Method. Here presented in original wrappers, foxed at the edges, pages uncut, and for all practical purposes already separated at the spine into five signatures: a possible candidate for rebinding. [#033038] $750

Her father's version (by Charles Colbert Henderson) is the first one in the collection; the rest of the writing is by Hogan. This copy measures 9-1/2" x 5-3/4". If this is a true issue point, with a narrower outer margin than some copies we have seen, no priority has been determined. Fine in wrappers. [#029338] $95

click for a larger image of item #32927, Oregana [Eugene], University of Oregon, 1954-57. Four volumes: Kesey's college yearbooks for his four years at the University of Oregon, where he would later teach a graduate writing course, and where his archive resides. In Oregana '54, Kesey is pictured as a member of Stizer Hall, as a member of the freshman wrestling team, and at the WRA Festival. Rubbing to the edges; very good. Oregana '55 pictures Kesey as a member of Skull and Dagger, in the shadows of a stage production, and as a member of Beta Theta Pi. Some foxing and mustiness; very good. In Oregana '56, Kesey is pictured as a member of the Druids (an organization of the most outstanding men in the junior class); a member of the Order of the O (charged with enforcing campus traditions); a columnist for the Oregon Daily Emerald; a cast member of Macbeth; a member of Beta Theta Pi (a mark on this page reverses the names of two rows of men); and a member of the wrestling team. Minor foxing to covers; near fine. Lastly, his senior yearbook (Oregana '57), shows Kesey as a member of the wrestling team and as a narrator in a "Vodvil" skit. It's uncommon to encounter a complete set of these yearbooks; we've had such a set only once before. A few stains to rear endpages, some rubbing to covers; overall very good. [#032927] $1,750

click for a larger image of item #32804, Alamo: A Radio Play (n.p.), (n.p.), [2002]. A 25-page script for Moody's radio play, about an art student obsessed with the rotating cubical sculpture in New York City's Astor Place entitled Alamo but commonly known as "the cube." The play first appeared in Paris Review 162, but it was performed as part of WNYC's public radio show, "The Next Big Thing." This script for the performance belonged to Tony Award-winning actor and "Wilson" of television's House, Robert Sean Leonard, who here played the main character, Irv Paley. Leonard's holograph markings and comments appear in the text, i.e., a working copy of the script. Together with a program for the performance listing the cast members and other principals, and a two-page interview with the sculptor of "Alamo," Tony Rosenthal who, among other things, explains where the sculpture got its name. Among the other cast members is Peter Dinklage, currently of Game of Thrones fame. George Plimpton is credited with "Stage Directions" an Moody as Playwright. The place of the performance is not identified, but it would appear that this performance was the one that was recorded for radio play on WNYC in 2002: apparently it was performed again on WNYC in 2004, with a different cast; the later cast included Miranda July and Ethan Hawke. The script is a computer printout on three hole-punched sheets, one sheet of which is recycled from another script, in a plastic binder. Near fine. A unique copy of a rare printed version of an uncommon work by Moody. [#032804] $750
$525

(Sports and Fitness)
click for a larger image of item #32322, Typed Letter Signed, with Vim and Vigor 1964. May 15, 1964. Hall of Famer Musial ("Stan the Man") played baseball for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1941 to 1963 (minus one year in the Navy); in February, 1964, he began a three-year term as Consultant to the President on Physical Fitness, under President Lyndon Johnson. This (form) letter, written on White House stationery, addressed to the Public Relations Director of the L.A. Dodgers, and signed by Musial as "Stan," asks for help, "since we don't have funds for advertising" in publicizing "two new books -- Vim for girls, Vigor for boys -- which explain how important [exercise] can be to their future." Included here are copies of Vim and Vigor, "A Complete Exercise Plan for Girls/Boys 12 to 18." [Washington, D.C.: President's Council on Physical Fitness, 1964]. Each is 24 pages, leading off with a Presidential Message from Johnson and concluding with a message from President Kennedy "prepared especially for this book in November, 1963." The 50+ year old advice is surprisingly current, and the advice across the two genders is surprisingly balanced. The letter is fine; the booklets are very good (Vim) and near fine (Vigor) in stapled wrappers. An example of the youthful President Kennedy's foresight in his emphasis on physical fitness, and the subsequent President taking up the mantle to continue his effort with the help of one of the athletic superstars of the day.

Inscribed by Shields to the Canadian poet and novelist Rosemary Aubert: "For Rosemary/ with thanks for a delightful evening/ Carol Shields."

[various], [various], 1967-1997. Eight various editions of the author's first book, all from the author's own library.

All copies from the '80s and '90s are fine or near fine; the hardcover and the Ballantine are very good; the 1968 paperback ("Now the major Paramount picture WUSA") is a poor copy with Paul Newman on the cover, barely held together with a dozen pieces of tape. [#033840] $250

click for a larger image of item #33357, Dog Soldiers Typescript [Boston], [Houghton Mifflin], [1974]. The photocopied typescript of Stone's second novel, winner of the National Book Award and one of the best novels to link the impact of the Vietnam war on American society in the Sixties to the dark side of that era -- the official corruption and the underside of the drug experiences of a generation. Bearing the [now crossed out] working title: Skydiver Devoured By Starving Birds. The title appears in a scene in the novel; it also appears in Stone's memoir, in an account of his time working for a tabloid newspaper where the writers were given headlines made up by other writers and had to create stories around them. The one time it appeared in print was in the excerpt from Dog Soldiers that appeared in the newsprint literary magazine, Fiction, in 1973. Stone's piece was called "Starving Birds" and at the end was identified as being from "Skydiver Devoured by Starving Birds." According to a 1987 letter of provenance, this copy was generated by the publisher and sent to the Book of the Month Club for early consideration for possible book club adoption. The pages bear, at the bottom, a torn Book of the Month Club filing sticker. 318 pages, plus cover sheet. The cover sheet and the letter of provenance are each signed by Robert Stone. The quality of the paper varies: several sheets have the blue tone of a mimeo. Near fine or better, in the bottom half of a manuscript box and the folding cardstock case of the Book of the Month Club, at this point more artifactual than protective. As far as we can tell, a unique copy of this award-winning novel, the basis for the highly regarded film Who'll Stop the Rain? [#033357] $1,500
$1,125
NY, Random House, (1971). An advance review copy of this highly regarded play, which won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for best play, and was nominated for four Tony Awards. From the library of Pauline Kael. Random House plays typically have small hardcover printings, and advance copies are especially scarce. Very good in a dust jacket with a jagged tear on the front panel, thus only good, with review slip laid in. [#034583] $45

$38
click for a larger image of item #34432, The Island Martinique Washington, DC, National Geographic, (2003). One of Wideman's least common books, presumably because National Geographic publications do not generally get the same kind of exposure and promotion in the retail book trade as do those of commercial presses. Inscribed by Wideman to James Tate (as "Jim," but from the estate of James Tate). Fine in a fine dust jacket. [#034432] $125
$81
NY, McDowell, Obolensky, (1959). A collection of short stories that takes its title from the opening lines of Anna Karenina -- "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way" -- which aptly describes one of the major themes of Taylor's writing. Pencilled owner name on pastedown under front flap; else fine in a very good dust jacket which has very slight rubbing and wear to the spine ends, much less than usual, and is internally tape-strengthened at the crown. [#021732] $60

A 1999 film adaptation won two film festival prizes and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

click for a larger image of item #26894, On Meeting Authors Newburyport, Wickford Press, 1968. An unsigned limited edition of an essay that first appeared in the New York Times. One of 250 numbered copies. Edge-sunning to covers; coffee splot lower front corner; very good in stapled wrappers. One of Updike's earliest limited editions, done the same year as Bath After Sailing and The Angels. Although the limitation of this title is larger than either of those, we have seen it less often and it appears to be scarcer in the market. [#026894] $565
