The Wild Party, March, Joseph Moncure
15 March, Joseph MoncureThe Wild Party
1st ed.(1928, 8vo without dustjacket. Privately published in an edition of 200 copies, this copy unnumbered. The Wild Party is a book-length, jazz-age narrative poem. It was widely banned but a publishing success nevertheless perhaps because of the controversy. The poem tells the story of two lovers who live in a decadent style that March depicts as unique to Hollywood. They decide to have one of their parties, complete with illegal bathtub gin and the couple's colorful, eccentric friends, but the party does not unfold without more tumultuous goings-on than planned. A new hardcover edition was released in 1994 with the subtitle The Lost Classic. It featured about fifty black-and-white illustrations by Art Spiegelman. Condition: Interior is clean but with the first signature slightly loose but fully intact. Fuscia endpapers have some fading at edges. Covers are heavily rubbed with a 2" scratch in front cover and some abrasion along the cloth near the back of the spine. An inked number, faded, at bottom of spine. Possibly a library mark..

Film Poster:
19 Struzan, DrewFilm Poster: "William Shakespeare's King Lear" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Preliminary design for the mock film poster used in Steven Spielberg’s second Jurassic Park film, The Lost World. During the sequence where the T-Rex terrorizes San Diego, we are treated to a scene in which an out of control bus smashes into a video store. In the front window of the store we briefly glimpse a film poster for King Lear starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. This inside joke was apparently a reference to Schwarzenegger's brief portrayal of "Hamlet" in his 1993 film Last Action Hero -- the unsuccessful blockbuster that was shunted to box office obscurity by the release of the first Jurassic Park the week before. Named by the Boston Globe as "the greatest poster artist of our time," Struzan is one of the most successful film artists of the past 40 years, having painted more than 150 movie posters, including all of the films in the Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, and Star Wars series as well as non-Spielberg/Lucas features such as Rambo, Blade Runner, and Harry Potter. This "17”x25" preliminary design is not the same poster shown in the film, which, though similar, is larger and has added graphics. No other copy of this poster, in any format, has previously appeared on the market..
