        Ballet

      New York: J.J. Augustin. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION, AN OUTSTANDING COPY IN THE SCARCE ORIGINAL SLIPCASE, of Brodovitch's masterpiece. "Although known primarily as a mentor and patron of photographers, due in large part to his position as art director and graphic designer at Harper's Bazaar, Alexey Brodovitch also made a legendary photobook of his own. Ballet, published in 1945 by J J Augustin in New York, has become a photobook legend for two reasons. Firstly, only a few hundred copies were printed, so the book is more talked about than actually seen. Secondly, the volume was extremely radical, both in terms of the images themselves and their incorporation into the design and layout... "The 104 pictures in Ballet had been taken by Brodovitch between 1935 and 1937. He photographed ballet companies visiting New York, including the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo, with whom he worked in Paris in the 1920s. Brodovitch shot the photographs with a 35 mm Contax camera, during both rehearsals and performances, by available light, hand-held, and using shutter speeds as slow as a fifth of a second or more. This resulted in blurred images of the moving dancers and in high-contrast, grainy negatives exhibiting burnt-out areas of flare from the stage lighting. These pictures totally violated the accepted conventions of good photographic technique, which demanded a sharp rendition of the subject and a wide, smooth tonal scale. Far from trying to mitigate these shortcomings, Brodovitch deliberately exaggerated them. He printed on high-contrast paper, bleached areas with the chemical ferricyanide to create more contrast, and enlarged tiny portions of the negative to increase grain - familiar strategies in the 1950s and 60s, but not in the 1940s. "Brodovitch's layout was as radical as his pictures. He divided the book into eleven segments, each corresponding to a ballet. Every section was laid out in a continuous strip, each image bled across its own page, so that a double-page spread can often be read as a single panorama, and the whole section like a strip of movie film. This gives the book a vibrancy and a fluidity that perfectly captures the motion of the dance... Ballet is one of the most successful attempts at suggesting motion in photography, and certainly one of the most cinematic and dynamic photobooks ever published" (Parr/Badger, Vol 1; 240-1). Roth 101. New York: J J Augustin, 1945. Text by Edwin Denby. 104 black and white photographs. Oblong folio (8 3/4 x 11 x 1/4 in), original boards, original French fold dust jacket; original slipcase. Housed in custom half-leather box. Slipcase with section missing from spine (label fully intact); book and dust jacket in exceptionally fine condition with only a hint of fraying to dust jacket corners. A beautiful and remarkable copy.

        Bouquet of Flowers]

      1945 - Chromolithograph. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of some faint discoloration to the surface of the paper in the margins. Image size: 25 7/8 x20 3/4 inches. This luxurious chromolithograph of a bouquet of flowers is after a painting by the celebrated Viennese porcelain painter, Joseph Nigg. A celebrated Viennese flower painter, Josef Nigg studied under Johan Drechsler at the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Vienna. Primarily a flower and fruit painter, Nigg was best known for his highly detailed still lifes on porcelain. Between 1800 and 1848 he became one of the foremost decorators at the Vienna porcelain factory, and his delicate paintings are considered some of the finest examples of the Austrian style. Examples of his superb work can be found in some of the best museums in the world, including the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. Known for his luxurious still lifes, Nigg paid close attention to every minute detail of the composition from bloomy roses to dewy peaches. This large chromolithograph is a lovely example of his intricate paintings and effortlessly conveys the luxuriousness and grandeur of his monumental designs.

        Historical Documents Recorded Soon After the Atomic Bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki

      [1945]. Some content dislodged from pages, else albums very good in spiral-bound boards, and scrapbook very good in flexible boards. Prints are uniformly in very good condition, with light curling, creasing to the edges, and fading evident in several instances.. Collection of over 1400 photographs documenting the catastrophic aftermath of the United States' bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945. Consists of 17 loose 8 1/2 X 11 inch vintage prints, 20 loose modern prints of varying sizes, a scrapbook, and two albums, titled A and B. Album A features approximately 900 photographs, mostly 1 X 1 1/2 inch contact sheet cutouts and loose 3 1/2 X 4 1/2 inch prints, depicting Hiroshima Army Hospital, Hiroshima Red Cross Hospital, Hiroshima Relief Hospital, Motoyasu-cho, and the Gokoku Shrine, as well as demolished buildings, injured civilians, necrotic organs, and disfigured skeletal remains. Album B includes 365 photographs, primarily 2 X 2 1/2 and 1 X 1 1/2 inch contact sheet cutouts, of Nagasaki Medical University and Shiroyama National School, among other sites, that focus on the obliterated city structures and damaged natural flora of Nagasaki and the surrounding area. The scrapbook contains approximately 133 original prints, several clippings of photographic reproductions, and 5 contact strips, either adhered to the book's pages or laid in between sheets. The albums and scrapbook feature handwritten notes in Japanese, presumably commenting upon the depicted casualties and recording the detrimental effects of nuclear radiation on the hospital patients. These photographs seem to have been created at the behest of the Japanese Ministry of Education, which assembled a team to record the destruction during the immediate aftermath of the attacks in late 1945. In an effort to disseminate medical information to doctors, scientists, and the greater public, the Ministry called upon several of the Japan's most important filmmakers and photographers, including Shunkichi Kikuchi, who would garner renown as one of the foremost photographers of postwar Hiroshima and Tokyo. While several photographers contributed photographs to the archive, the majority of the 17 loose vintage prints are images by Kikuchi. The collection also includes several stills from a documentary on the bombings, created by the Nippon Elga-sha film company as part of the Ministry's initiative. A historically significant and in-depth record of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks, this archive features numerous penetrating, yet disquieting, images from some of the era's leading Japanese photographers, providing insight into the devastating scientific, medical, and psychological ramifications of the atomic bomb.

        POSTER - Toros en Vitoria

      Ortega, Valencia 1945 - This is not a book but a wonderfully colourful ORIGINAL 1946 Spanish Bullfighting Poster. Measuring 106cm x 54.5cm, it is by C. Ruano Llopis and it advertises a bullfighting event in Vitoria, Northern Spain for 4,5 & 6 August 1945 starring the matadors Ortega, Arruza (the champion Spanish bullfighter in 1945),Silverio Perez, Julian Marin, Parrita, Manolete and Pepin Martin Vazquez. The poster was printed by Ortega of Valencia and it bears the printer's name at the bottom and also the square stamp of authenticity to the lower right side with a print number of 1577. The brittle poster, whilst all original, has folds and creases, as well as a little damage to the lower left edge. All of this could be rectified by a skilled archivist and, of course, the poster would be best conserved by professional linen-backing. We believe that few of these would have survived so long in anything approaching collectable condition, as they were meant to be pasted up on billboards. Our shop acquired this poster (one of a collection of 5) many years ago from a customer who used to live in Spain. We're now having a clear out of our basement and we have decided to put it on sale internationally. The poster will be sent, well packed, in a sturdy tube. Please note that by selling such a piece of original art, we do not necessarily approve of or support the sport of bullfighting.
