click for a larger image of item #31535, Photographs of Bombing 1972. Four panoramic panels (constructed from nine individual images) of post-bombing destruction. Only one of the images is labeled, on verso: "Nam Ngan hamlet, Don Soc district, Thanh Hoa province, destroyed by US bombs dropped from B.52's at 2:30 hrs, April 26, 1972." Black and white photographs, mounted on mat board. These were given to members of a U.S. peace contingent visiting Hanoi in late October 1972, just before the Presidential election that year, in hopes that their content would be publicized in the U.S. upon their return. The high-profile entourage of women consisted of Jane Hart, wife of Senator Philip Hart; the poet Denise Levertov; and the novelist Muriel Ruykeyser. They met with the Vietnam Committee for Solidarity with the American People and the Vietnam Women's Union. Richard Nixon, running on a "Peace With Honor" platform, won the election in a landslide over George McGovern, who ran as an explicitly antiwar candidate. The peace delegation had little but symbolic impact: it reiterated, as had been the case for years, that the bulk of the artistic community in the U.S. was soundly antiwar, and it showed -- as had also been the case for some time -- that the antiwar movement now included part of the mainstream of American life, in this case represented by a moderate Senator's wife. Three are 20" x 7"; one is roughly 26" x 6". Near fine. In our experience, unique. [#031535] $1,500

click for a larger image of item #31661, Marching to the Freedom Dream and Autograph Note Signed NY, QCC Art Gallery, (2010). The catalog of an exhibition of Budnik's Civil Rights-era photographs. Inscribed by Budnik to the author Peter Matthiessen and his wife, "with all loving wishes and Peace to infinity." A bit of soiling on the rear cover; near fine in self-wrappers. Together with a copy of Theos Bernard's Penthouse of the Gods [Scribner's, 1939; heavily mottled and lacking dust jacket, front flyleaf excised], with Budnik's ownership signature and an undated autograph note signed laid in to Matthiessen, ("Here's 'that' book - rather amazing story"), saying he's headed to South America, and commenting on the death of what appears to be a mutual friend. Written on the back of a promotional card for a Book Search service; fine. Budnik's photography book is surprisingly uncommon; no other copy is listed online. [#031661] $350

click for a larger image of item #33218, The Nova Convention NY, Entermedia, 1978. The program for three days of performances, film, readings and discussions honoring Burroughs' and his writings in 1978, when he first returned to the U.S. after many years of living in London and Tangier. Signed by William Burroughs and by Phillip Glass. Glass performed "New Piece for Electric Organ," which a teenage attendee -- Thurston Moore, later of Sonic Youth -- described as "idiosyncratic high-speed minimalist pianistics [which] was natural, gorgeous and sublime." Other participants included a virtual Who's Who of the American avant garde and underground: Brion Gysin, Patti Smith, Laurie Anderson, Kathy Acker, Timothy Leary, John Giorno. Ed Sanders, Allen Ginsberg, Anne Waldman, Merce Cunningham, John Cage, Terry Southern, Robert Anton Wilson, filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow and others. Keith Richards was listed but didn't appear; Frank Zappa filled in by reading "The Talking Asshole" from Naked Lunch. Robert Palmer reviewed the event for the New York Times and wrote that the Glass piece was "as conservative in its language and as rigorous in its organization as Mr. Burroughs's first novel, 'Junkie,'" and that Patti Smith's "was more in the tradition of the cut-ups; it celebrated attitude, style, and the kind of 'holy accidents' that visionary artists have long cultivated." At least two films of the event have been released, and one record album and cassette, and portions of it have been restaged over the years: it was self-consciously understood by the participants to be a landmark of its time. The cover prints a seven-line quote from Burroughs, which as usual seems to anticipate the future -- our present -- in terms practically no one but he would have come up with, about surviving the age of Nova, "with Nova conspiracies, Nova criminals, and Nova police" and a "new mythology in the Space Age, where we will again have heroes and villains, as regards intentions towards this planet." Twelve pages; fine in stapled wrappers. An uncommon and ephemeral piece documenting a major cultural event, seldom found signed by the central figure of the convention, and here also signed by one of the performers, himself a major American composer.

click for a larger image of item #32858, The Place of Dead Roads NY, Holt, Rinehart, Winston, (1983). The second volume of the trilogy that includes Cities of the Red Night and The Western Lands. This copy is inscribed by Burroughs to Peter Whitmer, "wishing every success on his Leary biography." Dated May 22, 1984, in Lawrence, Kansas. Whitmer is the author of Aquarius Revisited: Seven Who Created the Sixties Counterculture That Changed America; Burroughs and Leary were two of the seven. In his book, Whitmer recounts Burroughs grabbing this copy of The Place of Dead Roads from him during the interview and reading from page 128. Whitmer's notes on the rear pastedown and perhaps a dozen pages. Spine slanted and slight foxing to pages edges; near fine, lacking the dust jacket. [#032858] $500

click for a larger image of item #32272, For Kings and Planets NY, Random House, 1998. An advance copy in the form of a bound photocopied typescript. 467 pages, double-spaced and double-sided, with the title header "Orno & Marshall" and the date header "11/4/97," and significant textual variations between this and the published text. Sent by a Random House editor to Peter Matthiessen, hoping for a publicity comment. An additional handwritten letter is laid in, from John [Sterling?] to Matthiessen's wife, expressing happiness that the Matthiessens will be coming to Sun Valley [likely the Writers Conference]: "It will be a social zoo, of course, but we will have one another (and Mark Salzman's humor) as comfort." Tapebound, with an acetate cover; near fine. An early -- and at this point possibly unique -- version of the second novel by Canin, with distinguished provenance. [#032272] $250

(Frost, Robert)
click for a larger image of item #33382, The Dimensions of Robert Frost NY, Rinehart, (1958). Inscribed by Cook: "For Ethel and George Anderson/ Bread Loafers from away back/ and George the master Chaucerian/ scholar-teacher of our days. With appreciation -- Reginald L. Cook/ Bread Loaf 1958." Cook was an English professor at Middlebury College for many years, and involved with Bread Loaf almost from its inception, as Robert Frost was. Cook Commons, on the Middlebury campus, is named for him. A good three-way association, relating Cook, the Andersons and Frost, via the subject of the book and their longtime connections to Bread Loaf. Near fine in a good, foxed and spine-faded dust jacket that is fragile at the folds. [#033382] $100

click for a larger image of item #32280, Billy Bathgate London, Peters Fraser and Dunlop, 1990. Stoppard's "Revised First Draft" screenplay for the film based on Doctorow's novel, released in theaters in 1991, directed by Robert Benton and starring Dustin Hoffman, Bruce Willis, Loren Dean, and Nicole Kidman. Included is a Paramount Pictures internal memo from the year before, summarizing the novel and weighing the challenges of bringing it to the screen, and concluding, "Despite the difficulties here, if a way can be found to bring Billy's journey to the screen with even some of its force and vision intact, this could make a compelling, classy, big film." Paramount, however, ultimately passed on the idea: the film was released, with a Stoppard screenplay, by Touchstone Pictures. The memo is stapled once and folded once; near fine, laid into the screenplay, which is bradbound in plain blue cardstock covers with a small abrasion on the front and a wrinkled corner on the back; near fine. The title is written on the spine and foredge. An interesting look at Hollywood's take on a classic literary novel, and a look at an early version of the film: difficulties in adapting the material to the screen -- as suggested in the Paramount memo -- led to changes in the storyline that caused Doctorow to distance himself from the film, and presumably contributed to the film's relatively poor critical reception and commercial success. Uncommon. [#032280] SOLD
New Orleans, Perdido Press, 1994. A trial edition, one of reportedly 10 copies printed by Edwin Blair of Perdido Press for John Dufresne and John LeBow, in preparation for a print run of 176 copies. This edition was never issued: John LeBow issued his own edition later that same year. A fine copy in saddle-stitched wrappers, and signed by Dufresne. With a 2003 letter of provenance laid in from the bookseller who first got the copy from Blain. A scarce, unpublished edition, much more elaborately designed and illustrated than the final published book. [#914646] SOLD

An ink drawing by Eggers of a malformed human, captioned "Things have changed since then, executed on the previously blank dust jacket of Timothy McSweeney's Issue No. 5. Signed (initialed) by Eggers. With an additional ink drawing by Eggers on the flyleaf, of an amoeba shape, captioned, "At one time they were all like this." Eggers has been selling his captioned paintings and prints of captioned animals to benefit ScholarMatch (which he also founded), an organization that funds college educations. Additionally signed by Ben Greenman. Issue No. 5 was the first hardcover issue of Timothy McSweeney's Quarterly Concern, and it was issued in three variant bindings and four variant dust jackets. This is the Ted Koppel binding with the previously blank white front. Two tiny spots to foredge and small lower board nicks; near fine in a very good, mildly dusty jacket with a couple of closed tears. [#032951] $850
$595
click for a larger image of item #32644, Typed Note Signed 1981. An airmail note, written from Oxford, declining an engagement on the grounds that he will be out of the country. Ellmann, one of the leading literary critics of his time, was a Joyce scholar; the recipient of the note directed a Bloomsday festival on Martha's Vineyard for over 35 years, among other Joyce-related activities. Jagged marginal tears from opening, else near fine. [#032644] $55

(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

click for a larger image of item #32660, The Road, Screenplay and Promotional Materials Beverly Hills, Nick Wechsler Productions/Dimension Films, 2008. A copy of Joe Penhall's screenplay, "Yellow Draft Version 1," dated 02.26.08; 112 pages on yellow paper; bradbound: an early version of the screenplay of the well-received film based on McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, differing from the final version in a number of particulars -- the placement of certain scenes and pieces of dialogue, and changes in the dialogue and screen direction. Together with a 20-page interview with Viggo Mortenson, the film's star, and a 15-page interview with director John Hillcoat. Each of these has been computer highlighted in color for ease of reading. Also together with 25 pages of production notes, in which Mortenson, Hillcoat, and others share their experiences bringing the book to the screen. Also one computer printout of a film poster, and a certificate of authenticity that was provided by publicist Noe Gold, who was hired by the Weinstein Company, the film's distributor, to write the production notes. Mortenson's interview has a bit of corner creasing; otherwise all elements are fine. A scarce look behind the scenes of a highly regarded film based on an even more highly regarded book: Mortenson, in particular, gives a very interesting account of his contact with McCarthy before and during the filming. Very uncommon. [#032660] $565

click for a larger image of item #31486, Children is All and Cracks (n.p.), (n.p.), 1961/1962. Mimeographed typescripts of two one-act plays, which were collected in his 1962 volume entitled Children is All. Inscribed by Purdy on the title page of Cracks to the poet Quentin Stevenson "with the sincere admiration of James" and additionally signed, James Purdy. Children is All (1961) runs 41 pages; Cracks (1962) runs 16 pages. Each is near fine; stapled in the upper left corner. Purdy was a controversial author whose works explored, among other things, gay themes at a time when this was taboo; his popularity and critical reception suffered as a result, but many of his more celebrated contemporaries considered him a genius and a great writer, among them being Tennessee Williams (who wrote a blurb for the book publication of Children is All); Edward Albee (who produced Purdy's play Malcolm); and Gore Vidal, who called him "an authentic American genius" and wrote in the New York Times article entitled "James Purdy: The Novelist as Outlaw" that "Some writers do not gain wide acceptance because their work is genuinely disturbing. Purdy is one of them." As best we can determine, OCLC lists only two copies of the former typescript and one of the latter in institutional collections. Another collection lists "photocopies" of these two plays, but these productions predate plain paper photocopying. Scarce works by a writer whom Jonathan Franzen called "one of the most undervalued and underread writers in America." [#031486] $1,500

click for a larger image of item #32678, Archive of 1952 Presidential Campaign Speeches Springfield, Stevenson Campaign Headquarters, 1952. The transcriptions of 56 speeches given by Stevenson during the Presidential election season of 1952, beginning with his welcoming address to the Democratic National Convention on July 21, when he was speaking as Governor of the host state of Illinois and before he was drafted as the Democratic Party's Presidential candidate. The second speech here begins: "I accept your nomination and your program. I should have preferred to hear those words uttered by a stronger, wiser, better man than myself." 54 more speeches follow, all issued as news releases and most on Stevenson Campaign Headquarters letterhead. The final speech was given on November 1 (Election Day was November 4). Stevenson lost to Eisenhower, winning 44% of the popular vote but carrying only 9 states. A chronological record of Stevenson's entire first run for President: each release runs 3-10 pages, so hundreds of pages of Presidential politics from a half century ago, with equal opportunity to note how much things have changed and how much they have not. Photo-reproduced legal-sized sheets; minor edge wear; a few pages detached from corner staples; large coffee ring on the first page of the second news release. In all, a near fine lot, representing these speeches' first appearance in printed form. A number of them were published in book form by Random House prior to the 1952 election, with a Foreword by John Steinbeck. [#032678] $1,500
