        DONALD JUDD: A CATALOGUE OF THE EXHIBITION + CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ OF PAINTINGS, OBJECTS AND WOOD-BLOCKS 1960-1974

      (JUDD, DONALD). Smith, Roberta, Dan Flavin & Donald Judd. Foreword by Brydon Smith. DONALD JUDD: A CATALOGUE OF THE EXHIBITION + CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ OF PAINTINGS, OBJECTS AND WOOD-BLOCKS 1960-1974. Ottawa, CANADA: National Gallery of Canada, 1975. First Edition. 4to. Debossed Cloth. Catalogue Raisonné. Good/No Jacket. xvi + 320pp, profusely illustrated in b&w and color. Text in English and French. With an exhibition history, bibliography, and exhibition checklist. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Published in conjunction with a comprehensive 1975 retrospective held at Ottawa's National Gallery of Canada, this substantial volume contains a full catalogue raisonné detailing entries for three hundred and fifty-five paintings, sculptural objects and wood block prints executed by the late, great Minimalist giant between 1960 and 1974. A most presentable example of the exceedingly uncommon hardbound edition lacking a dust jacket with the publisher's addenda / errata sheet and detached rear inside flap of the jacket laid in. Its orange cloth covers show some light soiling, a small abrasion to the upper foredge tip of the front board, and a diagonal crimp through the upper foredge tip of the rear board that does not affect the pages. The free endpapers have been discreetly glued down flat to the inside front and rear covers, and the textblock bears a bit of light soiling to the bottom edge of along with an ink smudge along the top. While it shows no visible accession pockets or spine labels, experience tells us it's likely this is an ex-library copy that has been nicely cleaned up. It has been priced accordingly. 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. 0-88884-277-5 Inventory Number: 023500&

        ENSEMBLE DE QUATRE CORRESPONDANCES.

      - Ensemble de quatre correspondances adressées à un libraire qui souhaite réaliser une exposition de l'oeuvre picturale de MALCOM DE CHAZAL et éditer pour l'occasion un catalogue qu'il voudrait voir préfacé par Jacques de Lacretelle. - LETTRE AUTOGRAPHE signée, localisée et datée " Montreux, 16 mai 60 ". Deux pages (209 X 269). Lacretelle félicite son correspondant pour l'intérêt qu'il porte à Malcom de Chazal, mais refuse d'écrire une introduction à un ouvrage qui lui serait destiné : " [je] ne connais pas assez son oeuvre ". Il reconnaît pourtant l'avoir rencontré l'automne dernier : " L'homme m'a plu et son destin d'albatros m'a paru tragique. J'aime aussi ses pensées de moraliste, cette ironie hautaine et ces images qui sortent de terre [.]. ". Puis Lacretelle conseille : " Pourquoi ne pas essayer de toucher Paulhan, ce Chazalien de la première heure ? C'est lui qui saurait le mieux mettre en valeur notre ami. ". Après lui avoir souhaité le succès dans son entreprise, Lacretelle l'invite à venir lui rendre visite lors de sa prochaine venue à Paris : " Je vous montrerai une cinquantaine de gouaches et d'huiles que Chazal m'a confiées en vue d'une exposition. J'ai frappé à plusieurs portes et j'ai quelque espoir. Mais tout le monde n'a pas votre feu ! [.]. ". - LETTRE AUTOGRAPHE signée, localisée et datée " Brécy, 22 juillet 60 ". Deux pages (209 X 135). Lacretelle se reproche sa réponse négative au sujet d'une édition de l'oeuvre de Chazal : " La véritable raison est que votre projet me paraît intéressant, généreux, mais bien difficile à réaliser pratiquement. Que de frais et quels souscripteurs ? [.] ". Il pense qu'une telle entreprise serait plus facilement réalisable à Paris. Il lui reparle à nouveau de Paulhan et lui annonce que si personne n'est prêt à l'aider il reviendra sur sa décision : " Je ne veux pas que Chazal se croie abandonné. ". Il lui donne ensuite le nom et les coordonnées d'une amie de Chazal qui pourrait lui venir en aide dans son aventure éditoriale. - CARTE AUTOGRAPHE signée, localisée et datée " Brécy. 29 juillet 1960 ". Verso de carte postale " Vue de Brécy " (103 X 140). Lacretelle regrette que son correspondant se heurte comme il l'avait prévu à des difficultés matérielles, mais est soulagé d'apprendre que ce n'est pas " [son] refus initial qui en est cause. ". Il évoque ensuite la possibilité de venir rendre visite à l' " attrayante " librairie de son correspondant. - LETTRE AUTOGRAPHE signée, datée " 5 mai 1961 ". Deux pages (209 X 269) à en-tête imprimé " 49, rue Vineuse ". Lacretelle n'a pas oublié son correspondant " pas plus que je n'ai oublié Malcom de Chazal. J'ai persuadé la Galerie Charpentier de faire une exposition de trente de ses toiles ". Il a fait la présentation à la presse, présentation qui sera reproduite dans le catalogue. Il se rappelle que son correspondant possède des documents (livres, manuscrits, photographies) et souhaiterait qu'il les lui confie temporairement le temps de l'exposition : " Ce serait assurément plus commode que de les demander à Chazal lui-même. Il faudrait des textes ou des images susceptibles de piquer la curiosité des bibliophiles. ". Il demande cependant à son correspondant de ne rien envoyer pour l'instant, car il va s'absenter une semaine. TRES INTERESSANT ENSEMBLE. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        Moments Preserved (Signed First Edition)

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1960. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. This is a signed first edition, first printing of the Irving Penn\'s first and most famous photobook \"Moments Preserved\" published by Simon and Schuster, New York, in 1960. Subtitled \"Eight Essays in Photographs and Words\", \"Moments Preserved\" gathers Penn\'s vast variety of enthusiasm - mostly for the vast variety of humanity - and slots them into categories by nationality: the French, the Italians, the English, and the Americans. Though most of these sections include fashion studies, still lifes, and the impressionist scents, they have in common the photographer\'s deftly understated portraits, printed here in subtlest gravure. Penn reinvented the classic daylight studio portrait for a more casual time, undercutting its formality but heightening its potential as a revealing performance. (Vince Aletti from \"The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century\") Measuring approximately 13.5 x 10 inches, the book is bound in beige cloth covered boards with a printed dust jacket protected by a mylar cover and is housed in a photographically illustrated laminated cardboard slipcase. The book is in FINE condition with a neat gift inscription. The dust jacket is in FINE condition with very superficial soiling. The slip case is in Near Fine condition with some surface and corner wear as well as some minor soiling to the back to the slipcase. Overall, this is an exceptional signed copy of a classic photobook that is very difficult to find in this condition. The book has been boldly signed and dated by Irving Penn on the first free endpaper and is inscribed to the famous art dealer, Mark Kelman. Cited in \"The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century\" by Andrew Roth.
