        Dada 1916-1923

      NY: Sidney Janis Gallery, 1953. Fine. Offset lithograph, 38 inches wide by 25.25 inches high. . A fine example, folded as issued, unfolded once to confirm condition. Schwarz 336.& & "The Dada catalogue took its place among Duchamp's unique publishing events. Designed as a poster on a 25-by-38-inch sheet of thin, foldable parchment paper, it listed all 212 items and included four short essays by Arp, Tzara, Huelsenbeck and Levesque. These essays were set in blocks of contrasting type running diagonally down the sheet--a text descending a staircase. Duchamp then overprinted the whole page in a bright red-orange, announcing the exhibition with letters that recall original Dada typography. When the painstakingly produced catalogue was finally received, Duchamp has been reported, took a sheet in his hands, crushed it into a loose ball, and suggested that a trash can full of these paper balls be offered to visitors entering the vernissage. Duchamp, characteristically, did not attend the opening." (Caroll Janis, Art in America June-July, 2006). wlb

Very minor wear, has been folded in four at some point, with associated fold creases. A response to a letter by the cricket writer Gerald Brodribb, noting that while he [Eliot] enjoys watching cricket, it is untrue that he coached a cricket team. The full text reads, "Dear Sir, In response to your letter of November 25th, one of the rumours that has reached you is true, and the other false. It is true that I enjoy watching good cricket; it is untrue that I ever coached the cricket at Highgate. For the latter occupation I am not qualified. Having spent my boyhood in America, my early experience was of a totally different game, and far from being qualified to coach, I am not even a good critic of such matches as I watch. I do not think that one can be a really qualified critic of any game one has never practised oneself in one's own youth. Yours Faithfully, [Signed] T.S. Eliot. Signed by Author. First Edition. Disbound. Very Good. 8vo. T.L.S..

        The Quarterly Review of Literature, Volume VII, Number 2 [Signed Twice]

      Annandale-on-Hudson, New York: Bard College, 1953. Wrappers. Very Good. A Very Good copy of Volume VII, Number 2 of the Quarterly Review of Literature, an independent literary journal founded in 1943 by Warren Carrier, and co-edited and published from 1944-1999 by Poet and Professor Theodore (Ted) Weiss and his wife, Renée Weiss. This issue contains work by George Seferis, E. E. Cummings, Ann Adams, George W. Nitchie, George P. Elliott, and Atsushi Nakajima. George Seferis' entry, an early Seferis Poem titled "Myth of Our History" ("Mithhistorima" in anglicized Greek), was translated by Kimon Friar whose introduction of Seferis precedes the Poem in this issue. This is a very good copy with some of the typical bending and wear at the wrapper edges caused by their being larger than the page block. This copy has been SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS at his entry and is ALSO SIGNED BY KIMON FRIAR at the head of his introduction. In the Quarterly Review of Literature, Ted and Renée Weiss frequently published Poets and other Authors, such as John Ashbery and Ted Hughes, before they achieved much acclaim. Though by 1953, Seferis' work had been published in English, in England, we find no earlier publication of his work in America. A Greek Diplomat, Ambassador to the UK, and one of the Twentieth Century's most important Greek Poets, George Seferis won the 1963 Nobel Prize in Literature for "his eminent lyrical writing, inspired by a deep feeling for the Hellenic world of culture", making him the first Greek ever to have received the Prize. Kimon Friar was a noted Greek-American Poet, an editor of periodicals dealing with Greek culture, and a translator of Greek Poetry including, most notably, Nikos Kazantzakis' epic poem "The Odyssey: A Modern Sequel". Beyond our shelves, books signed by George Seferis are quite scarce. A Very Good copy of the important American debut publication of George Seferis's work, SIGNED BY GEORGE SEFERIS and also SIGNED BY THE TRANSLATOR KIMON FRIAR.

        Collage Seventeen

      [Chicago, 1953].. Collage of cut colored wove papers and woven cloth cord, mounted on four layered planes of glass, signed “Marie Zoe Greene” in black ink on the glass at lower right. 600 x 495 mm. (23 1/2 x 19 1/2 inches). Original massive wood frame. An important abstract collage construction in glass and colored paper by Greene-Mercier, one of Moholy-Nagy's first students at the New Bauhaus in Chicago. Dating from 1953, "Collage Seventeen" was one of twenty "polyplane collages," which represent a breakthrough of sorts in her work, and a fascinating chapter in postwar modernist abstraction. The series occupied Greene-Mercier for a decade. On its completion, the complete series was given an exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago in March-April 1955, at the invitation of Carl O. Schniewind, in the Department of Prints and Drawings. We quote at length from an article by Lloyd C. Engelbrecht on "Marie-Zoe Greene-Mercier: The Polyplane Collages," which appeared in "Art International" in 1978: "Marie-Zoe Greene-Mercier is best known for her grandly-scaled monumental sculpture, such as the two French Government commissions at Barcarès and Arras. Less well known is a series of collages in which she explored the spatial relationships created by separating paper and other materials by multiple panes of glass, which she has named 'polyplane collages.' "There are twenty of these collages in all, the earliest dating from 1946. The first ten to be completed were exhibited on numerous occasions as individual works, and all twenty were shown as a group in the Art Institute of Chicago in 1955. Although some were shown again as a group in the following two years in the same city, since 1957 only a few have been exhibited, at infrequent intervals. With the patina of time acquired in the last twenty years they now seem to be part of a whole, much like a musical suite in which the individual movements each make their statement, at the same time complementing one another. "Greene-Mercier first turned to collage in 1945, when she made a series of three collages using the 'traditional' methods involving pieces of paper and glue. She soon yielded to the sculptor's fascination with construction in space and began to experiment with panes of glass, which she inserted between the pieces of paper. The twenty collages with panes of glass were the result, and since they followed the three without glass, she numbered them from four to twenty-three. The first two were made with three panes of glass, and the rest with four panes. Paper was pressed, and patterned Japanese paper, burlap, thread, string and rope were used as well. The panes of glass are bound tightly together with tape, and the glass is set flush with the other materials except in those collages in which parts of the glass panes were cut away for the artist by a master glass cutter…. "Each collage makes a statement in the Constructivist idiom, and the forms suspended in orthogonally defined space go back to the origins of Constructivism; Malevich exhibited a black square hovering over a white ground in 1915. What Greene-Mercier has accomplished is to articulate orthogonally defined space in a new way, although employing traditional materials. (She once remarked that she rejected the idea of using plexiglass because she was attracted to the long tradition of glass as a material for artists.)" Born in 1911, Greene-Mercier first came to Chicago in 1933, shortly after graduating from Radcliffe, and was involved in Constructivist art in Chicago from the time of her arrival. In 1934 she assisted James Johnson Sweeney with an exhibition of abstract art at the University of Chicago which included the first showing of paintings by Mondrian in the city. At the New Bauhaus she studied with Archipenko and Gyorgy Kepes, as well as with Moholy-Nagy. One of her polyplane collages, "Collage Eight" (1946), was included in the exhibition "Abstract and Surrealist American Art" at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1947. Her successful career, later dedicated primarily to work in bronze and steel, was surveyed in a retrospective exhibition at Amerika Haus, Berlin, in 1977.

Realizing the significant of the articles, the publisher took the highly unusual step of publishing the offprint with the three articles together. Few copies were printed and the offprint is of great rarity on the market. Watson, James D.; Crick, Francis. Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids, A Structure for Dexyribose Nucleic Acid.

        BOB WILLOUGHBY: AUDREY HEPBURN PHOTOGRAPHS 1953-1966 - DELUXE SIGNED LIMITED EDITION

      (WILLOUGHBY, BOB) (HEPBURN, AUDREY). Willoughby, Bob. BOB WILLOUGHBY: AUDREY HEPBURN PHOTOGRAPHS 1953-1966 - DELUXE SIGNED LIMITED EDITION. Signed and Numbered by the Photographer. Koln, GERMANY: Benedikt Taschen Verlag, 2010. First Edition 1/1000 Deluxe. Folio. Boards in a Clamshell Box. Photography Monograph. As New/As New. 282pp, profusely illustrated in black & white. Text in English, German and French. "In his distinguished career as a Hollywood photographer, Bob Willoughby took iconic photos of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Jane Fonda, but remains unequivocal about his favorite subject: Audrey Hepburn. Willoughby was called in to shoot the new starlet one morning shortly after she arrived in Hollywood in 1953. It was a humdrum commission for the portraitist often credited with having perfected the photojournalistic movie still, but when he met the Belgian-born beauty, Willoughby was enraptured. "She took my hand like...well a princess, and dazzled me with that smile that God designed to melt mortal men's hearts," he recalls. As Hepburn's career soared following her Oscar-winning US debut in "Roman Holiday", Willoughby became a trusted friend, framing her working and home life. His historic, perfectionist, tender photographs seek out the many facets of Hepburn's beauty and elegance, as she progresses from her debut to her career high of "My Fair Lady" in 1963. Willoughby's studies, showing her on set, preparing for a scene, interacting with actors and directors, and returning to her private life, comprise one of photography's great platonic love affairs and an unrivalled record of one of the 20th century's touchstone beauties". A pristine copy of this extraordinary volume - a must-have for the Audrey completeist that sold out upon publication - limited to one thousand copies only in a decorative clamshell box SIGNED AND NUMBERED by the late Bob Willoughby, unopened in the publisher's printed shipping carton, as issued. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. 3-8365-1889-9 Inventory Number: 021115&
