Description:
Los Angeles: Hall Bartlett Films, n.d. (1977). First printing. 195 pp., 8.5 x 11 inches. A specially bound copy of the script for the 1978 film The Children of Sanchez, produced, co-written, and directed by Hall Bartlett. Inside the front cover a small bookbinder’s label shows that the book was bound by Ronnie Gousman in Hollywood. Save for one tiny spot of wear on the back side of the spine, essentially as new. Hall Bartlett (1922–1993) wrote, directed, and produced dozens of films, as well as writing two novels and serving as a founder and board member of numerous Los Angeles cultural organizations. His films received ten Best Picture and Best Director awards at various international film festivals, seventeen Academy Award nominations, eight Hollywood Foreign Press Golden Globe Awards, and more than seventy-five national and international awards from publications and organizations. Bartlett is perhaps most famous for his adaptation of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, but a dedication to exploring… Read More

Description:
Boston: John W. Luce & Co., 1905. First printing. 107 pp., 5.25 x 7.75 inches. Cloth over boards, with printed cover and spine labels. Light wear to extremities, and scattered faint marks to cloth; light soiling to cover label, otherwise intact and bright; darkening and edge-chipping to spine label, still quite legible. Internally very good, save for a tape repair to one page (see images). Inscribed by the author on the front free endsheet, “For Carey McWilliams, with all good wishes . . . Los Angeles Oct 27 ’26”. Crusading author, journalist, editor, and activist Carey McWilliams (1905-1980), as a teenager read H. L. Mencken and F. Scott Fitzgerald, and organized his life according to the Jazz Age dictates as he understood them: “I was sixteen when I enrolled at the University of Denver. By that time I was very much interested in books and had scribbled notes for a kind of a novel about that part of the West. Of course I never wrote it. But I was interested in writing and books. And I read… Read More

New York: Dial Press, 1971. First printing. 134 pp., 5.5 x 8.75 inches. Perfect-bound in printed card covers, with printed dust-jacket. Drawings by Don Bolognese. Uncorrected galleys for this early young adult title, published the same year as the author’s Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. The book is set on a sharecropper plantation much like the one where Gaines was born. Slight sunning to edges of card covers, otherwise a very good copy; laid into a very good example of the dust-jacket, with some rubbing and a date in orange grease-pencil on the front flap (very likely the date of receipt for review). An uncommon title, in a very scarce advance state.

Cleveland, OH: Bits Press, 1978. First printing. (32) pp., 5.75 x 8.75 inches. A Bits Chapbook. Printed letterpress and stapled into printed card covers. Cover illustration from a photoengraving (“zincograph”) reproducing a woodcut by William Blake (“for Thornton’s 1821 edition of Virgil”). Light rumpling to edges of oversized covers, and slight sunning to edges (as almost always found); poet X. J. Kennedy’s tidy ownership signature and date on endsheet; and just a touch of rust to the staples in the center (but not on the spine) — still a near fine, fresh copy of the author’s scarce third book. Laid into this copy is a sales receipt for the purchase of the book from a noted poetry bookdealer in 1999; on the reverse, the recipient has noted the titles of those poems that at the time were only available in this volume.

Quarter purple suede and printed paper over boards, with inset leather spine label lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, in printed dust-jacket. With a photographic frontispiece depicting the authors on camels before the Sphinx and Pyramid of Khafre. A near-fine copy, with just a touch of sunning to the edges of the leather, in a good-plus jacket, with a few small losses and sunning to the spine. Many pages still uncut. Much nicer than usually encountered, and quite scarce in any sort of jacket. "You don't read it — it TALKS to you! The largest, handsomest, human-est Travel Book ever written; describing more countries than were ever put into one volume before — and so vividly you feel you are SEEING all the famous fascinating places around the world" (from the publisher's jacket copy).
