        The Magic Barrel

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, 1958. First edition of the author's first collection of short stories that went on to win the National Book Award. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author, "All good wishes to Fred and Louise Sincerely Bern Corvallis 1959." Near fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows light wear to the spine.The Magic Barrel, has been recognized as a classic from the time it was published in 1959. The stories are set in New York and in Italy (where Malamud's alter ego, the struggleing New York Jewish Painter Arthur Fidelman, roams amid the ruins of old Europe in search of his artistic patrimony); they tell of egg candlers and shoemakers, matchmakers, and rabbis, in a voice that blends vigorous urban realism, Yiddish idiom, and a dash of artistic magic. "In the short story, Malamud achieved an almost psalmlike compression. He has been called the Jewish Hawthorne, but he might just as well be thought a Jewish Chopin, a prose composer of preludes and noctures" (Mark Shechner, Partisan Review).

        Roemsche historie oft gesten, . . . nu erstmael in onser Nederlantscher spraken ghedruckt.Antwerp, (colophon: printed by Jan Grapheus and sold by Jan Gymnicus), August 1541. Folio. With the title-page and each of the 3 part-titles in a frame built up from 4 woodcuts (part 2 with different blocks than the others), well over 200 woodcuts in the text (including repeats). Late 17th-century calf, richly gold-tooled spine.

      Belg. Typ. 1958; BMC STC Dutch, p. 123; Funck, p. 401; Machiels L404; USTC 403306; not in Bibl. Belg. First Dutch edition of Livius's classic history of Rome, beautifully illustrated with hundreds of woodcuts, many measuring about 12×14 cm. Written about AD 10, it is the most extensive work to survive from classical antiquity, and the present translation for the first time acquainted a wider audience in the Low Countries with the "knightly, manly deeds" (as the title puts it) of classical heroes. The woodcuts provide a fascinating view of clothing, architecture, military and other equipment, boats and sometimes trades and other human activities. The view they provide is not of classical Rome, however, but of the early sixteenth-century, for the artists made very little attempt at historical accuracy. A few showing battles, sieges, councils, visitations, etc. are used many times to illustrate different events, but others more specifically reflect the subjects of the text. So we see a hundred-and-twenty-foot dragon, the death of Archimedes, the use of elephants in battle, the burning of books (very topical in 1541!) and many other lively scenes.Owner's entry on title-page, partly erased. Leaves *2-5 misbound, title-page and leaf 207 detached, water stains, affecting the text in the first and last few quires. Front hinge and head and foot of spine damaged. Overall in good condition. An influential and beautifully illustrated edition of a great classic.

        Someday, Somewhere (First Edition with Dust Jacket and All Ephemera)

      Tokyo: Geibi Shuppan, 1958. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good. This is a first edition, first printing of Yasuhiro Ishimoto\'s critically acclaimed photobook \"Someday, Somewhere (Aruhi Arutokoro)\" published by Geibi Shuppan, Tokyo in 1958. The book features 7 color photographs and 178 black-and-white gravures including various gatefolds and fold-outs. In volume one of \"The Photobook: A History\", Parr and Badger write: \"Yasuhiro Ishimoto represented an influential link between Japanese and American Photography . In 1958 he had the distinction of producing the first major postwar Japanese photobook, the elegant Aruhi Arutokoro (Someday, Somewhere), shot in both Tokyo and Chicago . Aruhi Arutokoro is a photobook of truly international stature, providing Japanese photographers with a model of expression that transcended both the parochial and the purely documentary tendency dominating Japanese photography of the time\". Measuring approximately 11.25 x 9 inches, the book is bound in black cloth covered boards with a yellow spine and a photographically illustrated dust jacket. Laid into the book are 3 pieces of ephemera - a small booklet containing messages by book designer Ryuichi Yamashiro, Taro Okamoto, Ken Domon, and others, the publisher\'s postcard, and slit. The condition of the dust jacket is Very Good+ with some minor chipping and closed tears to the edges and a small amount of loss to the head and heel of the spine area. The inside of the dust jacket has been reinforced with tape at the head and heel of the spine. There is also some surface wear to the front and back covers. The book is in Near Fine- condition with some foxing to the top outside of the book and top outside edges that does not extend to inside of book with the exception of a tiny foxing spot on the top edge of the folding page. The pages opposite the first image page and the index page show some printing ink reflection which is very common for this title. The ephemera is in FINE- condition. Notwithstanding the list of faults listed above, this is a superior copy of this title that has all of the elements as issued. Cited in \"The Photobook: A History by Parr & Badger and Ryuichi Kaneko\'s reference work on Japanese Photobooks, \"Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 1970s\".

"To date...the materials that have most profoundly affected our daily lives are semiconductors. Of considerable interest during the 1930s and 1940s, the recognition of their utility in microelectronic devices has led to sensor, computer, and communication technologies. May such uses have their origin in transistors...[and] the development of the integrated-circuit microelectronic devices that have led to the silicon revolution...represented by the work of Esaki [Phys Rev 109, 603 (1958)] on the tunneling diode and the work of Esaki and Chang (Phys Rev Lett. 33, 495 (1974))] on hetereostructures."

        Outside Inside (Signed First Edition, 3 Volumes)

      Germany: Steidl, 2009. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New. This is a signed first edition of \"Outside Inside\" published by Steidl, Germany in 2009. From the publisher: \"Outside Inside\" is a gorgeous three-volume box set of 800 photographs drawn from this master photographer\'s immense archive. Chosen by Davidson himself, the selection spans a 60-year career, and features such seminal bodies of work as Circus (1958), Brooklyn Gang (1959), East 100th Street (1966-1968), The Civil Rights Movement (1961-1965), Subway (1980) and Central Park (1992-1995), as well as his two most recent works in progress - a series of urban landscapes made in Paris (2007) and Los Angeles (2009) - and many unpublished photographs. The pages in these volumes document Davidson\'s passionate and progressive vision, a vision that bears witness to several decades of volatile change in twentieth-century America. Born in 1933 in Oak Park, Illinois, Bruce Davidson\'s prolific career began in 1949, when he began taking photographs as a precocious 16-year-old. In 1954, he studied at Yale University with the great teacher and artist, Josef Albers, working briefly as a freelance photographer for Life magazine before joining Magnum Photos in 1958, after a meeting with one of its founders, Henri Cartier-Bresson. Davidson was given a Gold Medal Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Arts Club in 2007. His work has been extensively published in monographs and is included in many major collections around the world. Measuring approximately 15.5 x 15.5 x 8 inches (22 pounds) and containing over 800 tritone plates, the 3 books are bound in cloth covered boards with a tipped-on cover image and are housed in a custom slipcase. The books and slipcase are still in the original publisher\'s box. The slipcase has been signed by Bruce Davidson in silver pen just below the title. This signing took place on October 5, 2010 at Barnes and Noble in New York City and a photograph of the signing appears at the end of this listing. The books and slipcase are in As New condition.
