        JOHN GOSSAGE: THE THINGS ANIMALS CARE ABOUT, AND. - DELUXE LIMITED EDITION WITH A SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH

      Nazraeli Press, Tucson, AZ 1998 - Thirty-seven individual 10 x 8" cardstock sheets, 32 duotone illustrations. John Gossage's "The Things That Animals Care About, And." is a unique book cum object that presents thirty-two views of nature as they might appear from the perspective of an animal. The images are for the most part mundane and undistinguished to the human viewer, but perhaps integral to the daily life and well-being of a different species. Each is presented as a duotone black and white plate affixed to the recto of a matte cream-colored cardstock sheet that has an irregular horizontal pencil line that references perhaps terrain - or the horizon - drawn across it. These are accompanied by one blank sheet, two title pages uniquely lettered by John Gossage, and a hand-letterpressed colophon that are all housed in the publisher's 11 x 9 x 2" ramen wood display box (that doubles as a frame) with a Plexiglas face and sliding wooden closure with Gossage's hand drawn title silkscreened across it. A most handsome example of the exceedingly uncommon deluxe first edition limited to thirty-two copies containing an additional 4 ½ x 3 ¾" black and white silver gelatin print of two trees and a cloud that is reproduced in the book mounted on a 10 x 8" sheet of board SIGNED "John Gossage / 12" in pencil on the verso, as issued.

        A KIND OF RAPTURE

      New York: Pantheon((1998)). First Edition, Folio (9-1/2" x 11-3/4") bound in black cloth. Introduction by Toni Morrison and afterword by Meyer Schapiro, the only text in this absolutely stunning collection of color photographic portraits, mostly of street people, which Schapiro says "bring to mind some of the greatest painted portraits." Using high-resolution digital equipment, Bergman created his own color separations for these photographs which were taken with a simple 35 mm camera, amateur film, no tripod, and no special lighting. Of this, his first book, Morrison states, "Occasionally there arises an event or a moment that one knows immediately will forever mark a place in the history of artistic endeavor. Robert Bergman's portraits represent such a moment." Obviously, no light praise and well deserved once you see these truly amazing photographs that have the power to stop you in your tracks. This copy is SIGNED by Morrison at her contribution., Hardcover, Fine in a Fine dustwrapper

        THE ESSAYS OF WARREN BUFFETT: Lessons for Corporate America

      New York: Lawrence A. Cunningham, 1998. Trade paperback. Very good. An early printing. Buffett (b.1930), the Oracle of Omaha, is a genuine American folk hero, if folk heroes are allowed to build fortunes worth upward of $15 billion. He's great at homespun metaphor, but behind those catchy phrases is a reservoir of financial acumen that's generally considered the best of his generation, as evidenced by this thematically-arranged collection of letters to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders. Selected, arranged, and introduced by Lawrence A. Cunningham. This copy is inscribed by Warren Buffett on the front cover. Original printed tan paper wrappers. Only the slightest bit of wear. Better than very good.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED: To a Fan on "Toledo Blade" Letterhead.

      March 5, 1998., Toledo, Ohio: - On 5 3/4 x 7 1/4" notepaper with letterhead of the Editorial Department, "You write a fine letter . It amazes me that Nancy Drew remains so popular. Sincerely, Mildred W. Benson (Carolyn Keene)." Benson, the acknowledged creator of Nancy Drew, wrote 23 of the first 30 books beginning in 1930 with THE SECRET OF THE OLD CLOCK. Much like the enduring character she brought life to, she was an adventurer who, in addition to being a writer and journalist, was a pilot and amateur archaeologist. Over the course of her career Benson wrote 112 additional children's books and numerous short stories, and her career in journalism spanned 58 years -- first at the Toledo Times and then at the Toledo Blade, where she continued to write a column until she passed away in 2002 at the age 96. Light creases, stray pen marks on verso, otherwise fine. Includes original mailing envelope addressed by Benson. Letters such as this one, wholly in Benson's own hand, are quite scarce.

        MALABAR, INDIA: HISTORIA DOS PORTUGUESES NO MALABAR [HISTORY OF PORTUGUESE IN MALABAR].

      Lisbon: Edições Antígona, . 1998 - Small 4°. CIII, [1] title, ?? Arabic text in red and black, 134, [2] errata, 4 colour lithographed maps (3 folding and 1 full-page), original illustrated wrappers with manuscript title on the spine (Good, small chips and loss of image in margins, small cracks to the spine, slightly stained, old annotations in pencil to Arabic text). An original important Arabic historical text on the Portuguese in Malabar, India, in the 16th century was published with the first Portuguese translation in the late 19th century. This is a printed transcription of an Arabic late 16th century manuscript with a Portuguese translation describing the Portuguese colonisation of Malabar in the 16th century. The maps on the back show the coastal regions of India and Sri Lanka. The original text in Arabic was written circa 1584 by Zain al-din al-Ma’bari, a court historian in Bijapur (officially known as Vijayapura, in Karnataka state of India). In this work, entitled Tohfut al-Mujahideen (Gift to the Holy Warriors), Zain al-din presents his commentary on Portuguese in Malabar and calls the Muslims to rebel against the newcomers.Despite the text, the Portuguese, who had firmly established their hold on Goa by the 1580s, continued doing business with the Muslim in the region.This book is the first tranaslation from the original text from circa 1574 to Portuguese. The first translation of Tohfut from Arabic to English was made by the East India Company soldier, M.J Rowlandson in 1833. References: Jamal Malik, Islam in South Asia: A Short History, 2008, p. 143.

        Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion

      Seven Stories Press, 1998. Signed and inscribed by Gary Webb upon half-title page. xxviii, 548 pages. Footnotes, glossary and index. "Shows how the L.A. crack market flourished through a breathtaking combination of government negligence, greed, and criminal conduct... Demonstrates that U.S. government agencies, including the CIA, DEA and FBI, were aware of the activities of this well-connected drug network and did little or nothing to stop it. Indeed, in several instances documented here, the Justice Department, the CIA, and the secret National Security Council unit run by Oliver North, took extraordinary steps to protect the ring from public exposure. In the final chapters Webb reveals the conflict that led to his newspaper's stunning repudiation of its own series - and at what cost he stood by his story." - from dust jacket. Webb was found dead in his home in 2004 with two gunshot wounds to his head. Curiously, his death was ruled a suicide. Clean and unmarked with light wear. Dust jacket now in archival-grade mylar. A quality signed copy of this heroic work.
