        Milano, Italia

      Lerici, Forma-Vita 3, 1957. 135 fotografie in bianco e nero di Mario Carrieri. 4to. pp. 164. . Ottimo (Fine). Sovracoperta restaurata professionalmente per una piccola mancanza al pannello frontale (Dust jacket professionally restored for a little lack to the front panel. Otherwise very good). Prima edizione (First edition). . Il volume è costituito da dieci scene che raccontano Milano senza bisogno di alcun testo, fatta eccezione per una breve biografia dell'autore. Carrieri, fotogiornalista e direttore della fotografia, rimase lontano da qualsiasi altro progetto per due anni, dal 1957 al 1959, per fotografare esclusivamente la nebbia, la periferia, la vita notturna, gli abitanti di Milano. La metropoli fu immortalata da ben 3500 scatti eseguiti entro la cinta daziaria di Milano fra il gennaio e l'agosto del 1958, su pellicola rapidissima 35 millimetri. Da questa imponente mole di immagini Carrieri selezionò le 135 destinate al volume. Nessuna immagine fu ripresa in luoghi privati: un progetto, si potrebbe dire, tutto ''girato in esterno''. Uno stradario è collocato all'inizio di ognuna delle dieci scene ed aiuta ad orientarsi. Il fotografo non nasconde nessuno degli aspetti meno attraenti e duri della città, non soltanto quando riprende la grigia vita di periferia, ma anche quando ritrae il centro dei negozi e del passeggio, che riesce a far sembrare più scuro e minaccioso del vero, al pari delle zone periurbane. Anche il tempo è ''strumentalizzato'': la Milano di Carrieri è sotto scacco di una pioggerella incessante e di un cielo plumbeo carico di neve. La sua attenzione per gli aspetti più sordidi della vita di città nell'intento di smontare il mito della metropoli ne ha fatto uno dei libri più riusciti del neorealismo fotografico, che proprio a fine anni Cinquanta concludeva la sua parabola.

        COLLAGE IN AMERICA: December 18th thru [sic] January 4th, 1958 [Exhibition Poster]

      Zabriskie Gallery [1957], New York - 14" x 9.75" approx. posted printed recto only green on white. Folded twice, in quarters - likely as issued. A couple of clean tears at folds. Very good. Poster for the ground-breaking exhibition COLLAGE IN AMERICA, which included early work from Ray Johnson, Robert Rauschenberg, Allen Kaprow, and Jasper Johns -- only his third exhibition overall and predating his 1958 Castelli solo debut. COLLAGE featured what (according to Virginia Zabriski) ".may have been the first time Johns ever showed one of his flag pieces. I remember the price was $300 and nobody bought it, including me" (ZABRISKIE: Fifty Years p. 15). A prescient exhibition Zabriskie herself frequently mentioned as her favorite and one that helped distill many of the most important artistic developments of the coming 1960s: from Happenings and performance art (Kaprow & Beck) to mail art (Johnson) and pop (Johns & Rauschenberg). Other artists included in the show include: Arthur Dove, Alfred Leslie, Franz Kline, Vincent Longo, Lee Krasner, and Robert Motherwell, among many others. A striking promotional poster for a influential event. [See reproduction in ZABRISKIE: Fifty Years p. 87]. [Attributes: First Edition]

About Fine (dust-soiled top edge, spine tips lightly bumped); about Fine jacket (spine panel mildly toned). Fine- The quiet life of schoolmaster Bill Mor and his wife, Nan, is disturbed when a young woman, Rain Carter, arrives at the school to paint the headmaster's portrait. "Visual art was of great importance to Murdoch and is a dominant strand in the novels, as well as being an idiosyncratic element in her moral philosophy. (Murdoch sees the creation of, and attention to, good art as a moral issue.) She thought that she might have been an art historian or a painter had it not been for the war, and her novels frequently feature painters as major characters, as, for example, in The Sandcastle."

An IBM computer was used to process some of the data; Langridge, the lead author of this paper and Wilkins's doctoral student, was the first to apply a stored-program digital computer to the analysis of DNA structure (as recorded in Langridge's PhD. dissertation, published the same year as the present paper).
