         The Pyramid Tomb of Hetep-heres and the Satellite Pyramid of Khufu

      Mainz, Germany: Philip von Zabern, 1985. First edition. Hardcover. vg to near fine. large Quarto. x, 90pp., 2 foldouts, 2 leaves of photographs. Original orange cloth with red lettering on cover and spine. "Reisner's explanation for the burial of Hetep-heres I (found intact, except for the queen's body, in an unmarked tomb) is contested and an alternative explanation is developed. The unfinished pyramid cutting immediately south of, and on line with, the queen's tomb was begun for a pyramid superstructure intended for Hetep-heres I, rather than having been abandoned because of her tomb as Reisner suggested. The first queen's pyramid, which was the initial member of the Great Pyramid's Eastern Cemetery, was moved to the location of GI-a so as to align with a satellite pyramid being prepared for Hetep-heres's son, king Khufu. The change in plan for the queen's pyramid may have resulted in the removal of the queen-mother's body from her original tomb..." (Author). Illustrated with b/w photographs, two foldout profiles of the pyramids and in-text drawings and plans of the excavation sites. Binding with very light wear along edges. Exlibris on inside front cover. Binding on overall very good, interior in near fine condition.

         Photo Album]: 1970s African-American Family

      Massachusetts, Washington D.C., Virginia 1985 - Oblong folio measuring 10" x 12.5". Screw bound decorative cloth. Contains 214 color photographs measuring between 2" x 2.75" and 5" x 7" with some captions, as well as one letter and a printed flyer. Near fine album with a tear on the front board and some rubbing with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by an African-American couple, J. Anthony Sprow and his wife Merle, between 1976 and 1985 many of which are Kodak prints. The photos take place primarily in Fredericksburg, Virginia and Massachusetts while J. Anthony, captioned here either as John or Tony, was completing his MBA at Harvard. The Sprows were from Virginia and visited often when John was on school breaks. These photos show picnics, baseball games, and volleyball games as well as candids of family members. The couple went to parties, one flyer here is for Merle's going away party when she went to Massachusetts with John, and enjoyed the company of their families. Merle had spent 13 years working for the government with the Division of Adult Education beginning in 1969. A letter dated June 1976 written by Merle tells of her resigning from her job, presumably to follow John to Harvard where he would continue his studies. One photo shows John with his head on his desk as if he's studied too much, another shows him posing on the grounds of the University in his Harvard t-shirt. In 1978 John completed his degree and photos of his graduation ceremony are seen here. Other photos include the couple goofing off during a snow storm, buying a new Mercedes, and various trips the couple took including beach photos. After Massachusetts John and Merle moved back to Virginia where John took a job helping develop, package, and finance "large scale infrastructure projects in numerous energy markets" which involved rethinking old views of operating an energy company.An interesting collection of late 1970s Kodak photography of an African-American couple.

      Wien, Edition Freibord, 1985-2011. 8° (9 Hefte in 4°). Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen. Ca. 95 Seiten je Heft. Orig.-Kart. - FREIBORD wurde 1976 von Bernt Burchhart, Wolfgang Hemel, Gerhard Jaschke, Camillo Schaeffer, Hermann Schürrer und Ingrid Th. Wald gegründet und wollte zu Beginn Literatur und Kunst mit Kulturkritik und politisch-sozialem Engagement verbinden. Rasch wurde die Zeitschrift zu einem wichtigen Veröffentlichungsort für AutorInnen des literarischen Undergrounds, verstand sie sich doch als Avantgarde-Publikation. Trotz einiger finanzieller Schwierigkeiten überstand die Zeitschrift die ersten Jahre und fand sowohl in Österreich als auch international Anerkennung, nicht zuletzt weil sie sich auch bald internationalen Beiträger(inne)n öffnete. Ab Heft 30 übernahm Gerhard Jaschke allein die Herausgeberrolle sowie die gesamte Produktion der Hefte. Neben gemischten Heften erschienen Themenhefte zu einzelnen Künstlern wie Werner Herbst, Hermann Nitsch, Andreas Okopenko oder Hermann Schürrer sowie Dokumentationen von Symposien und einigen \"Wiener Vorlesungen zur Literatur\".

         An Archive of 2 books (Tom Lea's The Hands of Cantu INSCRIBED to Stanford President Wallace Sterling and Crume's The World of Paul Crume), each accompanied by a warm TLS to Sterling on Erik Jonsson's personal letterhead

      1985 - Two books in dustjackets, each accompanied by an emotional TLS to Stanford President Wallace Sterling on Erik Jonsson's personal letterhead. A glimpse into the relationship between two American icons. J. Erik Jonsson, co-founder and President/Chairman of Texas Instruments (1951-1966), visionary Mayor of Dallas (1964-71) and noted philanthropist. In his May 6, 1985 letter (addressed to 'My dear Wally') Jonsson commiserates about their mutual recoveries from illnesses and shares Cantu (calling it 'a fine reading experience'). He advises he would like to send Sterling a second book (Crume) 'if that much reading now appeals to you.' He concludes 'Grandson Erik - and all my family - join in sending you and your lady our warmest personal wishes. We pray the health of both of you improves daily?' The accompanying book is inscribed 'For Wally - after a partially successful chase for an "exhalation of jets" - Best wishes - Erik'). Having had a reply from Sterling, Jonsson followed up with a June 20 letter accompanying the Crume book; 'The delivery of this letter. will be made by Art Charette with whom I will have the pleasure of two visits (dinner with the Charltons and him and at the office when he and Mr. Riggs are here? I was both thrilled and elated by your wonderful and kind letter.' Jonsson continues how pleased he was to learn that Sterling expects to be in his Stanford office by the fall, and at Sterling's 'renewed invitation to favorite grandson/namesake - Erik.' It is likely Sterling and Jonsson met through Cecil H. Green, a co-founder with Jonsson of Texas Instruments and a major contributor to Stanford. Green was lead donor for the construction of the Cecil H. Green Library, the centerpiece of Stanford's second comprehensive university fundraising campaign that raised $304 million during the mid-1970s, after which Sterling was known as "Stanford's man with the Midas touch". Dr. Sterling died shortly after the second letter (July 1, 1985). 'Grandson Erik' (Erik Charlton) went on to receive a Masters degree from Stanford and as of 2017 is active in several Silicon Valley businesses. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
