        A Way of Seeing: Photographs of New York by Helen Levitt with an essay by James Agee

      New York: The Viking Press, 1965. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. This is a first edition, first printing of the critically acclaimed photobook, A Way of Seeing: Photographs of New York published by The Viking Press, New York in 1965. A Way of Seeing was Helen Levitt\'s first published collection of photographs and features 50 incredible gravure plates of her pictures taken on the streets of Yorkville, Harlem and the Lower East Side. In The Photobook: A History, Martin Parr and Gerry Badger write, Levitt\'s photographs are beautiful--major underrated works. Like Henri Cartier-Bresson, she achieves a rare balancing act: her pictures have sentiment without being sentimental, always maintaining an objective distance...The casual observer of these pictures, dazzled by their poetry, could easily miss the harsher realities masked by the surface warmth and joie de vivre. The New York Times stated, Helen Levitt was the first American photographer to fully comprehend the essence of Henri Cartier-Bresson\'s photographic message and put it into practice. Like Cartier-Bresson, she understood how to combine intuition and intellect to forge sophisticated, lyrical compositions from commonplace events. Measuring approximately 7 inches x 9.5 inches, the book is oblong and bound in the original black cloth boards in a photographically illustrated dust jacket. The condition of the book is Near Fine+ with very minor age toning to the edges. The dust jacket is price clipped and in Near Fine condition with a bit of wear to the tips, a 1 inch crease on the upper right front corner, and very minor loss at the spine head. Overall, this is a gorgeous copy of an exceptional photobook classic. Cited in all three reference books on photobooks: The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century by Andrew Roth, The Photobook: A History by Parr and Badger, and The Open Book by Andrew Roth.

        Yasuzo Nojima: Posthumous Works (First Edition)

      Tokyo: The Committee for the Publication of Yasuzo Nojima\'s Posthumous Works, 1965. Hardcover. Near Fine. This is a rare first edition, first printing of the highly influential photobook \"Yasuzo Nojima: Posthumous Works\" self published in 1965 and edited by The Committee for the Publication of Yasuzo Nojima\'s Posthumous Works. Yasuzo Nojima is considered one of the most important and influential photographers in the history of modern Japanese photography. In a 1999 essay, the noted photography critic Richard Phillips wrote, \"In the late 1920s Nojima\'s work began to change from mannered pictorialism to simple, subtly lit and seductive portraits and nude shots to produce some of the most enigmatic images seen in pre-World War II Japan. The Japanese word for photography is shanshin, means to \"reproduce reality\". Nojima\'s images transcend the mechanical reproduction of reality and uncover truths not seen or understood by previous Japanese photographers. Against the convention of mainly using western women or celebrities as models, Nojima chose unglamorous, earthy Japanese women for his portraits. The carefully composed but simple images reject the overblown flattery of the pictorialists and attempt to unlock the inner soul of the subject. In a notebook entry, titled \"Fictions and True Stories\", Nojima, wrote, \"What they call art photography is nothing more than a catalog of the absentminded, the vague, the falsely significant or deep, the diluted, and the weak. They are therefore not the qualities the age demands.\" Ryuichi Kaneko and Ivan Vartanian in their reference work on Japanese Photobooks, \"Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 70s\" provide some insight into the scarcity of the book, \"This book represents an appraisal of Nojima in a postwar context and was published privately as a catalog accompanying a commemorative exhibition following his death in 1964. When it was published, it received little response from the general public; indeed, only those who had some relationship, usually direct, with Nojima were aware of it. As a commemorative item it was not available for retail sale, but was circulated among photographers and photography critics.\" Containing 52 monochrome photographs printed in collotype and measuring approximately 10 x 10.5 inches, the book is bound in white linen covered boards (no dust jacket as issued) and housed in a paper covered board slipcase. The condition of the book is Near FINE with the front and rear board glue marks visible and a small crease to the upper edge of the first 10 text pages. The paper covered board slipcase is in Good condition with soiling, age toning, puckering, and some paper loss and separation to the paper fold on one side. Overall, this is a highly collectible copy of an extremely scarce photobook title that is rarely available. Cited in the reference work on Japanese Photobooks, \"Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 70s\" by Ryuichi Kaneko and Ivan Vartanian.

With engraved architectural title-page, and 77 full-page woodcuts on integral leaves. Further with 2 woodcut decorated initials (from different series) and decorations built up from cast fleurons. Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment.

      Cat. of Wheeler gift 96; Dibner, Heralds of science, 175; Honeyman 497; ICCU (8 copies); Norman Lib. 333; not in Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca mechanica. First and only edition (before the 1965 facsimile) of a famous book of woodcuts depicting all imaginable sorts of mechanical devices and engines to ease and extend the manual labour of man, forming at the same time a pictorial guidebook to their construction and use. It was conceived and written by Giovanni Branca (1571-1640), engineer and architect. The page facing each woodcut gives a brief explanation in Italian (above) and Latin (below). Many in the first series show mechanized versions of common chores, such as sawing wood, threshing and milling grain, spinning flax, drawing water, ringing bells, lifting or dragging heavy objects, etc. Number 25 is the first illustration of a steam turbine as well as the first illustration of the practical application of steam power, in this case to pound pestles in mortars. While all sections include hydraulic equipment, the second series is devoted primarily to pumps. Number 5 shows an Archimedes screw. Many in the last series are hydraulic as well, including applications in mining. Number 21 uses a hydraulic device to pump air for a pipe organ. Branca follows in the tradition of Vittorio Zonca's 1607 Novo teatro di machine, which in turn followed the manuscript tradition of Leonardo da Vinci and Francesco di Giorgio Martini, but most of Branca's examples appear to be independent, appearing here for the first time.With many leaves browned, but otherwise in good condition and only slightly trimmed, with an occasional deckle surviving, with a tear into one woodcut, affecting only a solid black background (and two words of text on the reverse), and some marginal water stains. The binding shows some tears and restorations.

        Autograph Signed Letter, 4to, on personalized stationery, Chilmark, Island of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, September 2, 1965

      - Dear Irwin, There is a rather famous picture of Queen Elizabeth which corresponds somewhat to the description of the one your son purchased. I have forgotten the name of the artist but he was undoubtedly one of the fashionable ones of her time. Anyhow, many copies have been made of this painting. It has long been popular. I rather suspect your son bought one of these copies. If you send me a photograph I can probably find out where the original Queen Elizabeth painting hangs. You could not buy it, for sure, for $4,000. I am just about to leave here for sculpture. I expect to be returned to Kansas City (3616 Belleview Ave, K.C. MO) about the middle of December. Why don't you write me there! Do you still play the piano? Who was that old fairy you studied with in Carthage? I think he came to an unhappy end. I've lost his name. Write me a letter about yourself around the first of the new year?." Signed, "Cordially Tom". A friendly letter discussing the authenticity of a painting bought by his friend's son.

Set in the early 1960s the cold war is in full swing, and the Department, a holdover from the WWII section of British intelligence, forms an uneasy alliance with its rival agency, the Circus, when it is suspected that Soviet missiles may be in the process of being placed along the West German border. "A book of rare and great power" (Financial Times).

        A Sense of Where You Are: A Profile of Princeton's Bill Bradley

      New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1965. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Inscribed by the author in the year of publication, "For Hazel and Louis Landa I can hear you saying to one another: "Has he some quelque chose of his own upon the anvil?" "I expect it from him since poor Bradley helped to make him rich." With much affection, John McPhee December 25, 1965." Louis Landa was a close colleague of McPhee's at Princeton, where he taught English and was also an authority on Jonathan Swift. Some sunning to the spine cloth, near fine in a bright near fien price-clipped dust jacket without the usual fading to the spine. First published in 1965, A Sense of Where You Are is the literary equivalent of a harmonic convergence, a remarkable confluence of two talents--John McPhee and Bill Bradley--at the beginning of what would prove to be long and distinguished careers. "Immensely well-written, inspiring without being preachy, and contains as well the clearest analyses of Bradley's moves, fakes, and shots that have appeared in print" (The New York Times Book Review).
