        Every Building on the Sunset Strip

      Los Angeles: Edward Ruscha, 1966. First Edition, second issue. Inscribed by Ed Ruscha. Accordion folded; slipcase; One continuous accordion-fold page composed of glued paper segments with black-and-white photographs of every building on the sunset strip. Near fine in slipcase. Roth 101; Parr & Badger, Photobook II. In the 1960s, Ed Ruscha more or less reinvented the artist's book. By turning away from the craftsmanship and luxury status that typified the livre d'artiste in favor of the artistic idea or concept, expressed simply through photographs and text, Ruscha opened the genre to the possibilities of mass-production and distribution. The 27-foot length of the accordion-folded Every Building on the Sunset Strip affords the viewer two continuous photographic views of the mile and a half section of this landmark stretch of Sunset, one for each side of one of the city's landmark thoroughfare" (The Getty Research Institute).

Both are accompanied by letters from Braine SIGNED as John, one in holograph and the other typed.

There is a two-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED to Peter (also the recipient of the Arnold Bennett material) regarding a series on British television called BEST SELLERS, "a series about books, and it's interesting precisely because it doesn't talk down to the viewer."

Braine mostly discusses pubs. In part: "None of the pubs I used in Bradford and district were as far as I know political meetingplaces.

      Aux dépens d'un amateur, sans lieu 1966. - En feuilles 45 x 42, chemise pleine peau illustrée d'une gravure originale gaufrée à froid, dos muet, couvertures séricigraphiées monocolores: la première titrée, le seconde illustrée d'une composition signée et datée à la main, sous étui-boîte pleine toile, titré et illustré d'un motif original en rouge, ce dernier signé à la main par l'artiste. L'un des 15 exemplaires de tête numérotés (7) sur pur Chiffon, avec suite de 5 aquarelles couleur sur Japon Nacré et de 5 gravures originales, les 10 signées, datées et justifiées au chiffre de l'édition. Somptueuse réalisation dont le gigantisme n'écrase cependant pas; est-ce dû au magique moment printanier où ce livre fut terminé, un premier de mai, ou peut-être à l'imagerie si légère de couleur, voire si vaporeuse de formes, prolongées par une typographie très aérée ?Cet ouvrage novateur comporte un texte séricigraphié en quatre tons, parsemé de compositions colorées ou gaufrées à froid; trois des cinq gravures en relief de la suite étant rehaussées, la dernière à la feuille d'or.Le meilleur exemplaire possible de cet ouvrage très réussi, au tirage total restreint à 66 unités.

A near fine or better example illustrated with maps & over forty superb line drawings by Marcia & Edward Norman, in a near fine price intact pictorial dustwrapper. Neatly signed in full in black ink on the title page. A very handsome book production, winner of the 1967 prize for natural history writing: The John Burroughs Medal.. "In late October, 1964, in a small bus equpped for camping [Ogburn] set out alone for upper Maine. From Mount Desert Island, he traveled southward with the season, pausing for intensive explorations of Cape Cod and Nantucket, of the Long Island beaches, and of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands off the Virginia shore, until he reached the outer banks of North Carolina. The result is a book of eloquence and vitality, of depth and beauty, and one to which the reader will return again and again." [from the jacket]. This is Ogburn's Classic & an important book in the Natural History genre. Here, he explores and ruminates upon the various Atlantic seacoasts always noting the austere beauty of the sea in winter. An extraordinary vibrant & well informed work, a mixture of scientific fact & sweeping epiphany. Not as well known as Henry Beton's 1928 clasic, The Outermost House but certainly on a par. Very uncommon signed. Custom embossed dark blue cloth slipcase in very fine condition.. Signed by Author. First Edition.

        Death of a Naturalist

      NY: Oxford University Press, 1966. Octavo. First American edition. One of 1,000 copies comprised of sheets from the first edition with a new title page. This is Heaney's first commercially produced verse collection, preceded by Eleven Poems, a pamphlet published by Queen's University in Belfast. The future Nobel Laureate's richly cadenced lyricism is firmly established in this auspicious debut, from the famous opening lines of "Digging" onward. This is a fine copy in green gilt-stamped cloth, in a dust wrapper that shows very little of the customary fading to the photo-sensitive colors on the spine and just a couple of tiny nicks to extremities.
