        Dolomiti (senza titolo)

      1960. Harold Miller Null nacque nel 1916 a Filadelfia, Pennsylvania. Negli anni della sua giovinezza intraprese studi di medicina, in seguito interrotti, viaggiò molto sia nel suo paese che all'estero. Durante la guerra finì sul fronte orientale, in Asia, come ausiliario nei servizi sanitari, successivamente si impiegò nel corpo diplomatico del suo paese. Nel 1955 lasciò il servizio e seguì un programma di studi classici a Roma. Gli ultimi anni della sua vita li ha trascorsi in un paesino della campagna umbra, San Martino dei Colli PG. In Italia conobbe l'opera del pittore ed incisore Giorgio Morandi, e questo esercitò una profondissima influenza sulla sua successiva opera fotografica. L'amico Riccardo Bacchelli così né parla nella presentazione del suo volume Rive di Po 2: "Anzitutto mi par da avvertire che Harold Null rifiuta, per principio artistico ed estetico, ogni partito e risorsa che non appartengano alla tecnica dell'obbiettivo.... Quindi, non manipolazioni,.... non luci artificiali, non ritocchi. La sua tecnica mette il sommo dell'abilità nell'essere semplice e non artifiziata.... Mira al rilievo e al disegno mediante la chiarezza dei contorni e la forza dei contrasti d'ombra e luce... È un vero disegno fotografico di volumi e rilievi e ritmi e composizioni...." Le sue opere sono rappresentate nelle collezioni permanenti del Museum Art e del Metropolitan di New York, come nei musei d'arte di Cleveland e Filadelfia. Al retro il timbro di H. M. Null

        The Children of Bladensfield During the Civil War [Peter Matthiessen's Copy]

      Stamford: Virginia Jevne. 1960. Bound mimeograph of Ward's memoir of Bladensfield; although unattributed, edited by Peter Matthiessen, himself one of the "children of Bladensfield," for whom Ward wrote this memoir, which focuses on her youth at the plantation during the Civil War years. This copy is from Matthiessen's library; some insect damage; good in wrappers. Together with the 1978 Viking edition, published with Matthiessen's essay "Homegoing." Near fine, lacking the dust jacket. Laid in is a letter to Matthiessen from David Winfred Gaddy, the co-author of a book on the Confederate Secret Service, which made mention of a James Carey, a Confederate spy who visited Bladensfield and is mentioned in Ward's memoir. Also laid in is a parchment reproduction of Lee's Farewell Address coupled with his letter to Jefferson Davis. First Edition. Softcover. Good.

        Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

      London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1960. 1st Edition. Dark Blue Cloth. Fine/Good. Original translation. 5th or later Printing 207 Pp + Publisher's Catalog At Rear, Dated 1959. 1960 Reprint, The Eighth Impression Of The Book First Published 1922, With A Few Corrections In 1933. This Example With The Translation Uniquely Corrected In Pencil Throughout By A Rhodes Scholar Circa 1963-4. The Translation Corrects Obvious, Clear Abscombe's Mistranslations And Omissions To Such A Degree That It Constitutes A New, Corrected Translation. The Translator, William Zaltonoga, A Champion Oxford Boxer While A Rhodes Scholar, Appears To Understand That Wittgenstein Is Discussing How One Thinks About Objects Of One's Own Private Thoughts. Wittgenstein May Be Seen To Make Highly Pointed Conversational Observations Which Tear The Structure Of Consensual Academic Philosophical Thought With Jab After Jab, Demolishing Conventions, Not By Creating A Complete Philosophy But By Identifying How One May Think More Exactly On Matters Of Philosophy And Science And Mathematics, More Exactly Than Historical Consensus Demands, And, By Implication, Showing How Basic Concepts In The Mind Of The Reader Are Woefully Undeveloped If Not Juvenile. The Text In This Translation Makes Such Pointed Observations That It Questions The Basic Intellectual Background And Abilities Of The Intended Audience- Future Educators, Civil Service Managers And Political Policy Makers Educated At Elite Institutions. It Is Understandable How Academics Had Not Previously Bothered With A More Correct Translation, As The Book Is Virtually Unteachable Beyond The Text Itself, Unless One's Teacher Is Smarter Than Wittgenstein, Who Wrote It For The Students. An Important Addition To The Wittgenstein Canon, Both For Identifying The Inexplicable Inadequacies Or Intentional Dumbing-Down By His Translators, And For The Exactness Of The New Translation Offered Printed Here But Entirely Redone By Pears And Mcguiness, Perhaps Not As Well Done As Here By Zaltonaga. [For Another Good Example Of A Post-World War I Mistranslation, Also Somewhat Political, But In This Instance Translation From The Russian, Compare Any English Translation Of Zamyatin's "We" To The 1991 First Translation Into English By A Native Russian Speaker, Raduga Publishers, Moscow, 1991, Where The One Is Almost Unrecognizable From The Other, As Literature. ]

        Sharaku, A Complete Collection. Reproduction by the Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints

      OFFERING: An extraordinary publishing endeavor, more than 10 years in the making, the two issued deluxe volumes with texts in English and 72 tipped-in, facsimile reproductions, individually sleeved in 460 x 360 mm mats with mounted English and Japanese labels. No further volumes were published because of the much higher than expected production costs. 55 of the facsimile reproductions are color woodblock printed, made from new woodblocks with traditional nishiki-e methods, using examples of authentic Sharaku prints. Of these, 36 are finished with applied powdered mica, using kira-zuri technique. 17 facsimile reproductions are collotypes of b/w print designs, attributed by Yoshida to Sharaku and published for the first time. Yoshida's texts, (his 1943 monograph on Sharaku was the first by a Japanese scholar), draw on years of original research. EDITION NOTE: The Adachi Institute was established in 1928 to reproduce rare ukiyo-e prints in the original woodblock print format.Because of Adachi's working methods, the edition would have been limited to no more than 200 unnumbered sets. RARITY: Rare, I know of no other complete specimen offered for sale in the last 15 years. A worldwide institution search finds 19 sets, including the National Diet Library of Japan, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Public Library and University of Hawaii.
