        Michael Hartnett.

      Original photograph by John Minihan of irish poet Michael Hartnett on archival paper. 29,5 cm x 19,8 cm. From the library of irish photographer John Minihan. With John's copyright-stamp verso. Signed and titled by John Minihan verso. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995) Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996) and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984 Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986 the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

        History Of Western Philosophy.

      London: George Allen and Unwin Ltd.,, 1946. and its Connection with Political and Social Circumstances from the Earliest Times to the Present Day. Octavo. Original grey and white cloth, spine lettered in yellow on brown. With the dust jacket. Edges a little spotted, but an excellent copy in an exceptional jacket, with only very minor rubbing around the edges and minimal marks to the white rear panel. First UK edition, first impression, an exceptional copy. Russell's compendious account of the history of philosophy, from the Orphism of Ancient Greece to the Logical Positivism of the author's present day, was a triumph of his populist craft and is perhaps his most famous book. Written during the Second World War, Russell's project was in part conceived to explain to his audience the exact nature of the "civilisation" for which they were fighting. Appropriately, the dust jackets were printed on the backs of surplus Second World War maps, this one showing, superbly, the island of Ibiza; they do not generally survive in anything approaching collectable condition. Simon & Schuster published the first US edition in the preceding year.

        Du côté de Nietzsche. Manuscrit autographe

      1946 - - 1946, 21,7x11,5cm, 7 feuillets foliotés. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 14 pages in-8 qui paraitra dans le numéro 12 (décembre 1945-janvier 1946) de L'Arche. Manuscrit recto-verso complet, à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreux ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique parue à l'occasion de la parution de l'ouvrage du Père du Lubac, Le Drame de l'humanisme athée. Après la guerre, la place de Friedrich Nietzsche, aux côtés du Marquis de Sade et de Soren Kierkegaard, dans la pensée de Maurice Blanchot est révélatrice de l'influence majeure qu'exerce sur elle Georges Bataille et ses philosophes de prédilection. Désormais, Blanchot consacre de nombreux textes à ceux-ci et « Du côté de Nietzsche » en constitue un témoignage essentiel. Le titre même de son recueil La Part du feu à paraître en 1949 (avec, entre autres, cet article légèrement retouché au sommaire) forme une référence bataillienne. Pour Blanchot, la puissance de Nietzsche, par l'usage qu'il fait de la langue et par son style, ne réside pas tant dans ses thèses les plus manifestes et les plus commentées que dans le creuset d'un discours plus mouvant, parfois contradictoire : « L'influence de Nietzsche ne se réduit pas aux formes extérieures qu'elle a prises ; c'est probablement, au contraire, ce qui de Nietzsche a échappé à toute transmission manifeste, cette part de lui, étrangère aux influences directes, qui a exercé l'influence la plus profonde. » Cette idée demeurera centrale dans la lecture que fait Blanchot du philosophe allemand. L'inconstance de Nietzsche, son ambigüité, sont symbolisées par le thème de la mort de Dieu, centrale dans son œuvre : « En aucune façon, le thème de la Mort de Dieu ne peut être l'expression d'un savoir définitif ou l'esquisse d'une proposition stable », remarque Blanchot. Et d'affirmer dans une phrase restée célèbre : « Se contredire est le mouvement essentiel d'une telle pensée. » Dans L'Entretien infini (1969), Blanchot abordera de nouveau la question nietzschéenne de la mort de Dieu où elle rejoint celle de l'unité de l'homme. Très beau texte de Maurice Blanchot sur Friedrich Nietzsche, témoignant de l'influence de Georges Bataille sur sa pensée.

Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995) Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996) and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984 Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986 the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

        Samuel Beckett / Beckett Time - "What are you waiting for ....?" - Jumbo Poster for an international Festival, celebrating Samuel Beckett.

      Original Quality Poster using John Minihan's Photograph of Samuel Beckett, professionally mounted and framed. From the library of irish photographer John Minihan. Due to the oversize, includes free shipping within Ireland only. Quote for international shipping needed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first.
