ROCKY (THE 1976 MOVIE): Combined Continuity List. Sylvester Stallone. ROCKY (THE 1976 MOVIE): Combined Continuity List.
[Los Angeles]: Arlene Cooper Service, 1976. First edition of the Combined Conitnuity List for the award-winning 1976 movie. Written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, "Rocky" tells the story of Rocky Balboa, an uneducated but kind-hearted working class Italian-American boxer working in the slums of Philadelphia where he starts out as a small-time club fighter and later gets a shot at the world heavyweight championship. Also starring Talia Shire as Adrian, Burt Young as Adrian's brother Paulie, and Burgess Meredith as Rocky's trainer. Made on a budget of just over $1 million and shot in 28 days, this sleeper hit earned $225 million in global box office receipts, became the highest-grossing film of 1976, and went on to win three Oscars, including Best Picture. Considered one of the greatest sports films ever made, "Rocky" was ranked second (after "Raging Bull") by the American Film Institute in 2008. This "Combined Continuity List" contains cut-by-cut descriptions of all camera shots, including movements of cameras and actors within the shots and the dialogue spoken. Primarily used as a delivery requirement between production companies and studios, Combined Continuities serve as a legal description of a film or television project for copyright purposes and are used for dubbing, subtitling and closed-captioning work. A good "Continuity," especially a "Combined Continuity" such as this one, provides a comprehensive transcription of the finished film and is often the only archived, word-by-word, shot-by-shot, scene-by-scene, record of a film. 142 mimeographed 8.5 x 14" pages printed on rectos only; bound by metal clasp at top and with light-green front cover page. Some curling to corners of first few leaves but still very good or better. COMBINED CONTINUITY LIST FOR THE OSCAR-WINNING MOVIE.

THE SNAKE'S PASS. Bram Stoker. THE SNAKE'S PASS.
London: Sampson Low, Marston, et al, 1891. First edition of STOKER'S FIRST NOVEL. An early copy, INSCRIBED JUST TWO DAYS AFTER PUBLICATION to "J. L. Toole / from his affectionate friend / Bram Stoker / 20.11.90." (The copyright date is 1891 but the actual date of publication was November 18, 1890.) English comic actor John Lawrence Toole was a friend of Stoker's and of Henry Irving's. It may seem unlikely now but during his lifetime Stoker was better known as Irving's personal assistant and as the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned. A testament to the friendship of the men can be found in the dedication to the first volume of Stoker's 1906 biography of Irving, PERSONAL REMINISCENCES OF HENRY IRVING, which reads "To the Memory of John Lawrence Toole Loving Comrade and True Friend of Henry Irving." SNAKE'S PASS is the only novel written by Stoker to be set in his native Ireland and is considered a clear precusor to his later works of horror, such as DRACULA. The story traces the troubled romance of traveler Arthur Severn and local peasant girl, Norah Joyce, against the backdrop of the re-telling of the legend of Saint Patrick's defeat of the King of the Snakes in Ireland. Spine faded, endpapers professionally mended at hinges and professional touch up to minor cover, altogether a very good copy which is free from foxing. Housed in a red-cloth clamshell box with gilt-lettered leather spine label. INSCRIBED TO A FRIEND JUST TWO DAYS AFTER PUBLICATION.

"BAND" William Tolliver. "BAND".
Lafayette: circa 1981-83. Oil on canvas, measuring 36 x 48 inches. Brown wood beveled frame. Colorful image of four band members mid-note--bass, violin, banjo, and horn--with a free-flowing geometricity evoking cubism. William Tolliver (1951-2000) was a brilliant self-taught, Mississippi-born artist. He arose during the mid-1980's as a brilliant regional talent, an individual impelled by a desire to capture the landscapes and peoples of his native deep South. Whether dealing with everyday workers or back-alley jazzmen, he conveys a universal message through the common human experience. He was born in Vicksburg. His mother worked in the cotton fields by day, but also raised 14 children. To stimulate their interest in learning, she often challenged William and his older brother to drawing contests. Discovering William’s talent, she borrowed art books from the library that exposed her son to the works of the European masters. At age 14, Tolliver dropped out of school and left Mississippi to join the Job Corps program in Los Angeles. During his year-and-a-half stint with Job Corps, he studied carpentry at a government-sponsored trade school. Assisted by an instructor at the trade school who was also a visual artist, Tolliver received additional instruction and information about the techniques of painting. He married in 1977 and, in 1981, he moved his family to Lafayette, Louisiana, where an oil boom had created employment opportunities in the construction trades. In Lafayette, he worked as a wallpaper hanger and a house painter. Two years later, however, the city’s building industry fell into decline, leaving Tolliver unemployed. Laid off from his job and without income, he set out to relax in his free hours by painting with his daughters paint kit. Tolliver soon began to paint in a new and unique style that has been termed "representational abstract expressionism." Able to work in numerous mediums- oil, acrylic, watercolor, oil pastel, and dimensional reliefs- Tolliver was forever exploring new techniques.Critically ranked with such famous African American artists as Romare Bearden and Jacob Lawrence, Tolliver soon gained the reputation as one of America’s most renowned contemporary artists. He has received numerous awards and recognitions for his contributions in the field of art. He also produced the poster for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, the city where he finally settled.

LESS THAN NOTHING - OR THE LIFE AND TIMES OF STERLING FINNEY. E. B. White. LESS THAN NOTHING - OR THE LIFE AND TIMES OF STERLING FINNEY.
[New York: The New Yorker, 1927]. First edition and only edition of E. B. White's first book. Illustrated with photographs of posed manikins. There is no author, publisher or date noted in the book but Katherine Romans Hall, in her bibliography of White's works, notes that White indicated "These Sterling Finney advertisements were written by me. They ran in the magazine in the early years when it was trying to promote its circulation. I posed the dummies--figures I found in Wanamake's department store. The ads, of course, were parodies of a certain kind of 'culture-made-easy' --- Ross was delighted with them and they caused quite a lot of talk." Of course, the implication of each very amusing essay was that reading the New Yorker puts you well on the road to wealth and social success. The book was printed and published by the New Yorker advertising department and sent to agents and customers for goodwill purposes. Issued without dust jacket. The corners of the boards are a little rubbed, otherwise very good or better; and very scarce to rare. Housed in cloth clamshell case. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION OF HIS SCARCE FIRST BOOK.
