Houston, TX University of Texas Press 1997 Soft cover Very Good Soft cover Folio - over 12 - 15" tall 
Don Bacigalupi and Marilyn Dern-Foxworth University of Texas Press/Art Museum of the University of Houston Blaffer Gallery. This large paper 20 page folio of Michael Ray Charles' work is folded in half, as issued, with a large paper bag illustrated by him. Included is a 35 page softcover book with an introduction by Spike Lee, and essay by Kern-Foxworth, and interview with the artist by Bacigalupi and Kern-Foxworth, a bibliography and an extremely short biography. A penny is fixed to the rear cover. Also, included are a review sheet and two sheets of promotional material. Michael Ray Charles is a painter whose carefully crafted and faux-aged canvases and works on paper draw attention to race relations historically and in contemporary society. Borrowing pop culture images of characters such as Sambo, Buckwheat, and Aunt Jemima, Charles uses them ironically to comment on racial issues. His concerns range from how tobacco and liquor companies target marketing to minorities to the depiction of African Americans in the entertainment and sports industries to concepts of all-American (i.e., white) beauty.

140 Council of Jewish Women The Neighborhood Cook Book: Compiled Under the Auspices of the Portland Section in 1912
Portland, OR Bushong and Co. 1912 1st Edition Hardcover Good No Jacket Hardcover 8vo - over 7 
7 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches, 334 pages, local advertisements; white oil cloth boards are rubbed and worn with a bit of soiling corners wearing through, creases to spine cloth, internal hinges cracked at end papers, newspaper and magazine recipes clipped and pasted into preliminary blank pages resulting in tanned squares on title page, occasional soiling to pages, additional recipes occasionally hand written into blank pages provided for this and rear blank pages, binding a little tender but holding. The first edition of the Neighborhood Cook Book was issued in December, 1912 and exhausted within ten months. So great was the demand from all parts of the United States, that the Council decided to issue a second edition in 1914. An interesting window into the incorporation of local American culture into the Jewish immigrant experience. At the same time rabbis in Eastern Europe were requiring kosher certification on food packages sent to their regions, many Jews were integrating, adapting and modifying kosher ritual to fit their modern lives in America. The Neighborhood Cookbook contained many non-kosher dishes. An entire chapter, "Shell Fish and Shell Fish Entrees," dedicated to local seafood items such as clams, oysters, crab and lobster, all of which were forbidden according to the laws of kashrut. The integration of Oregonian cuisine, including non-kosher shellfish, reveals the integration of middle and upper class Jews into Portland culture. Most of the clipped recipes at the beginning of the book are for baked desserts such as cakes and cookies, while the hand written recipes at the end include two pickle recipes.

From the front jacket flap: A rollicking yarn of colonial times centered about the figure of Captain Dixy Bull, pirate and terror of the Maine coast. Chance and circumstances conspire to thrust upon Tremble-at-Evil Tidd, a timorous Boston tailor, the glory of impersonating the doughty captain... A rattling good yarn, with plenty of romantic coloring, full of life, action and lively humor. Clothes Make the Pirate was adapted to a silent film in 1925, starring Leon Errol and Dorothy Gish. The film was written by Marion Fairfax from the novel by Holman Francis Day and directed by Maurice Tourneur. It is a lost film, with only a one-minute trailer surviving. Photoplay editions were the forerunners of movie tie-in editions in books. They were editions produced to accompany silent films and the early motion pictures of the sound era when movies were known as photoplays.

Two of his works, A Fable (1954) and his last novel The Reivers (1962), won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Well packaged. Ships insured.
