Description:
London & New Haven: Yale University Press, 1990. First printing. Near fine in near fine jacket.. Inscribed first edition of this unlikely bestseller that made Paglia one of the most prominent and provocative cultural critics of the 1990s. Equally adept at deconstructing popular culture as the Western canon, what was (and is) often missed in the long-passed hype surrounding Paglia's anti-Puritanical approach to art and literature is just how original, well-written, and insightful (and not simply daring and controversial) it is - even as its essentialist underpinnings have increasingly fallen out of favor. As a university press edition, the first printing (most of which would have likely gone to libraries) is uncommon - and scarce signed. A still-important, challenging, and much-challenged work. 9'' x 6''. Publisher's original full blue cloth. In original unclipped (no price, as issued) color pictorial jacket. xvi; 718, [2] pages. Inscribed by Paglia on the front free endpaper: "For John - / Camille /… Read More

Description:
(Washington, D.C.): n.p., 1969. Very good.. An exhaustive archive of polling, public opinion, and related papers (including memos and other internal communications, research materials, and like) belonging to Fred Panzer, President Lyndon B. Johnson's chief pollster. More than any other president preceding him, Johnson relied on polling. Similar statements could also have been made of JFK (and arguably Truman...and even FDR), but Johnson commissioned more than four times the number of polls as Kennedy. And while Kennedy utilized polling primarily in crafting his message, LBJ was the first president to extensively use polls in his decision- and policy-making. Therefore polling - and by extension Fred Panzer - helped shape the presidency in a way that hadn't been seen before. Ten binders from the desk of Fred Panzer make up the bulk of the archive, creating an exhaustive survey of his work at the White House. Several additional binders of related materials (research, file copies, etc.) round out the… Read More

Description:
(New York): (Bob Parent), 1970. Near fine.. Stunning image of Billie Holiday at the height of her fame, taken by one of the most important photographers in the history of jazz. Robert Parent (1923-1987) was one of the pioneers of jazz photography. He combined a keen eye and appreciation for his subjects with a technical know-how that allowed him to capture images that eluded lesser practitioners. Determined not to disrupt performances, he developed a technique that became known as "available light photography" which allowed him to work in the dark environments of clubs and theaters. Using his Pressman Speed Graphic camera, Parent was able to quietly snap pictures without disturbing the performers, a technique on vivid display in this iconic image capturing Billie Holiday dramatically spotlighted onstage accompanied by pianist Bud Powell and drummer Art Tatum. This concert, mounted at Carnegie Hall (one of Holiday's favorite venues, where she played more than 20 times during her career), also… Read More

A rare image - considered by many "the greatest photo in jazz history" (THE NEW YORK TIMES) - of Charlie Parker, Thelonius Monk, Charles Mingus, and Roy Haynes performing at NYC's Open Door on September 13, 1953.

Using his Pressman Speed Graphic camera, Parent was able to quietly snap pictures without disturbing the performers, a technique on display in this iconic image.

Garden City, New York: The Dial Press, 1984. First printing. Near fine in very good plus dust jacket.. First edition of the second title in the V. I Warshaki series, following a woman private eye on the trail of criminal actions on the Chicago waterfront. Paretsky's series of V. I. Warshawski mysteries, featuring a hard-boiled woman detective, "may be seen as a kind of female Bildungsroman" (Porsdan), a feminist tale of of progress and development in a genre historically dominated by male writers and characters. As Helle Porsdan observes, Paretsky works "from within a traditional genre... to convey her feminist message" by adapting many traditionally male tropes to V. I., even as she faces gendered obstacles to solving the case. 8.25'' x 5.5''. Original cloth-backed blue boards with gilt lettering. Fore-edge machine deckle. Original color pictorial dust jacket, unclipped ($14.95), designed by Terrence M. Fehr. 252 pages. Proof review slip for Library Journal laid in (book likely a review copy). Mild… Read More
