    Victory over the Sun. First New York performance by Law, Alma (director)

    Brooklyn: Brooklyn Academy of Music, 1983. . Poster, 28 x 22 inches. Next Wave series. Some wrinkling. From the New York Times: By HARLOW ROBINSON Published: November 20, 1983 When the opera ''Victory Over the Sun'' received its first performance in St. Petersburg in 1913, the city's artistic elite buzzed with excitement. Tickets were sold out in a day. One drama critic in attendance later noted: ''Scandal lovers from the St. Petersburg demimonde were willing to pay enormous amounts of money just to get into the theater.'' When ''Victory Over the Sun'' returned to the stage 67 years later, in 1980 in Los Angeles, the public demonstrated the same sort of wild enthusiasm. One ticketless woman, in a gesture that would have delighted the opera's eccentric creators, is said to have bitten a security guard's finger when he refused to let her into the theater. On Friday, New Yorkers will have their first opportunity to see ''Victory Over the Sun,'' at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where it is being staged as part of the Next Wave Festival of Contemporary Performance. From the collection of the Russian theater historian, Alma Law.

    La Musica Futurista: Manifesto Tecnico by [Futurist Music] Pratella, Balilla

    Milan: Direzione del Movimento Futurista, [1911]. Single sheet folded once to make [4]pp. Soft horizontal fold to middle, else a nice example of this early Futurist music manifesto. The first musician to "surrender to the persuasion of promises and liberation", Pratella was courted early on by Marinetti to join his new movement that he hoped would breathe new life into Italian culture. Though not as nihilistic as Russolo's Art of Noises published three years later, he still makes what at the time, were revolutionary demands that musicians break from the traditional, proclaiming in a later manifesto that" the new order of disorder should be created by destroying the ancient schemes."

    Nowa kultura: tygodnik [New Culture: a weekly], vol. II, no. 12 (27) by Kwiatkowska, Franciszka and Edward Staniewski, editors

    Warsaw: Franciszka Kwiatkowska, 1924. Octavo (25 × 17.5 cm). Original staple-stitched printed wrappers with cover and typography design by Mieczys aw Szczuka; 24 pp. Wrappers very lightly creased; tear to upper edge of two leaves not affecting text; overall very good. Single issue of the important Polish modernist and avant-garde literary and political journal, published from July 1923 to September 1924 by the avant-garde artist Mieczys aw Szczuka and communist activists and promoters of the Polish labor movement Jan Hempel and Edward Staniecki. "Nowa kultura" continued "Kultura Robotnicza" ("Proletarian Culture"), an official organ of the Polish Communist Party. Both journals were influenced by the Soviet Proletkult aesthetics and various international left-leaning writers. Mieczyslaw Szczuka (1898-1927) was a constructivist artist and a co-founder of the avant-garde group and journal "Blok" which, like the contemporary Soviet avant-garde journal LEF, was committed to promoting Productivism, or the close ties between art and production. Szczuka was responsible for the constructivist cover design and minimalist typography throughout the text. The editors, Hempel and Staniecki, were both members of the Polish Socialist Party with strong ties to Moscow and were able to attract many contemporary Polish as well as Soviet writers to the publication. This issue contains a substantial article on American cinema by the Polish futurist writer W adyslaw Broniewski (mentioning David Griffith, Lillian Gish, Chaplin and others), a short story by Soviet writer Ilya Ehrenburg, and an announcement of the publication of the first issue of "Blok" magazine.

    When Technology Fails: A Manual for Self-Reliance & Planetary Survival. by Matthew Stein

    Santa Fe, NM Clear Light Publishers, 2000. Paperback First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: Binding shows slight lean, but remains perfectly secure; text clean. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. 405pp. Trade Paperback. Matthew Stein has written a clear, concise book on the subject of survival that, while educating, also does what few others have managed to do - entertain and engage the reader. Throughout the book you'll find personal stories accompanying the text to further illustrate or drive home a point. The use of these asides brings you into Matthew Stein's life, as he recounts personal stories of survival and tells the stories of others who have managed to overcome the odds to survive. Not just a survival book, Matthew also covers topics like alternative therapies; how to create a survival mindset; survival strategies; renewable energy; companion gardening; prophecies etc. as well as all the regular topics found in such books - edible plants; first aid; making a survival kit; growing, hunting and foraging; making tools; creating shelters; spinning/weaving/tanning etc. The book has some great illustrations that make plant identification and first aid that much easier to understand and each chapter finishes with a reference section listing books (along with a short review) and resources (with web addresses where available). This book is supposed to have been 15 years in the making - and the time and effort taken by the author to research his topic really shows. When Technology Fails belongs in your survival library - as the publisher says, "it's a user-friendly manual for the 21st Century".

    Il Deserto Tentato. Mistero in Un Atto by Pavolini, Corrado. (1898-1980) Music by Alfredo Casella. Book design by Giulio Cisari

    Milano: G. Ricordi & C. Editori, 1937. First edition. Wraps. Very Good. Scarce libretto of a strange Futurist one act opera, with talking a tree (Euphobia), shrubs and airplanes among the characters, some of which are actually human --aviators, soldiers and natives -- even if they intone like actors in a Greek tragedy. This oddball propagandistic work, more an oratorio than opera, celebrates war ("sweet war"), aviation and territorial conquest -- the things that cast a spell on so many Futurists, and which were the essence of Fascism. Three copies located on OCLC of this libretto brochure, at Berkeley, Harvard, and one in Italy. (There are copies of the printed music elsewhere). The work was first performed at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in 1937. 8vo. 20 by 13 cm. 23 pp. Dedicated to Mussolini. Pavolini, like many adherents of the Futurist Movement, came to embrace Fascism. In his case, he had a brother who was a prominent member of the Fascist heirarchy. After the war, Pavolini found success as a screenwriter. Age toning to the leaves.
