The usual suspects pictured here include Jonas Mekas, George Maciunas, Emmett Williams, Alison Knowles, Robert Watts, Yoshimasa Wada, Joan Mathews, Geoff and Bici Hendricks, Dick Higgins, Peter Van Riper, Wolf Vostell, Donna and Joe Jones, Henry Flynt, and numerous unidentified participants. Also included is the publisher's loose caption sheet identifying the images. A handsome example of this uncommon item (cited on pages 185-190 of Phillip E. Aarons' "In Numbers: Serial Publications by Artists Since 1955") complete with caption sheet showing some very slight toning along with a discreet half-inch separation along one of the folds.

        The New West Trilogy (First Editions, First Printings)

      Colorado and Germany: The Colorado Associated University Press and Stiftung Niedersachen. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. This is a set of Robert Adams critically acclaimed \"New West Trilogy\" consisting of first edition, first printings of \"The New West : Landscapes Along the Colorado Front Range\", \"Denver: A Photographic Survey of the Metropolitan Area\", and \"What We Bought: The New World, Scenes from the Denver Metropolitan Area 1970-1974\". The trilogy is a comprehensive exploration and documentation of the rapidly developing landscape of the Denver metropolitan area from 1968 through 1974 and the victory of consumerism over our so-called love of nature and rugged individualism. The following are the details on the three books: \"The New West: Landscapes Along the Colorado Front Range\" - First Edition, First Printing published by The Colorado Associated University Press in 1974. Containing 56 black and white photographs and measuring approximately 9 x 10 inches, the book is bound in brown cloth covered boards with a photographically illustrated dust jacket. The book is in FINE- condition with the name of the previous owner written in very small letters on the first free endpaper. The dust jacket is in Fine- condition with very minor wear to the covers and edges. \"Denver: A Photographic Survey of the Metropolitan Area\" - First Edition, First Printing published by Colorado Associated University Press in cooperation with the State Historical Society of Colorado in 1977. Measuring approximately 10.5 x 9 inches and containing 93 black and white photographs, the book is bound in photographically illustrated wrappers. Both the book and wrappers are in FINE condition. \"What We Bought: The New World, Scenes from the Denver Metropolitan Area 1970-1974\" - First Edition, First Printing published by Stiftung Niedersachen, Germany in 1995. Measuring approximately 9 x 8 inches and containing 193 black and white photographs, the book is bound in cloth boards in a photographically illustrated dust jacket. Both the book and dust jacket are in FINE condition with the dust jacket evidencing the typical dulling that accompanies this type of coated cover stock. From the New York Times, \"The most literate and eloquent photographer of our time.(Adams refuses) to accept a simplistic view of the West as either a pristine, prelapsarian collection of natural wonders . or a land ripe for unlimited economic development.\" From Aperture, \"Objective and direct, Adams\'s photographs unsentimentally depict a despoiled landscape washed in the intense Colorado sunlight .. his work stands alongside Walker Evans\'s American Photographs, Robert Frank\'s The Americans, and Stephen Shore\'s Uncommon Places in the pantheon of landmark projects on American culture and society.\"

        (Märchen) - Schneewittchen bei den sieben Zwergen.

      Um 1970.. . Mischtechnik von Ali Mitgutsch, li. u. sign., um 1970. 22,9 x 20,9 cm. - Auf Karton aufgezogen, dieser etwas fleckig; mit einem schützenden Pergamentpapier; die Farbe frisch. - Ali Mitgutsch: *21.8.1935 München. Mitgutsch, der nach dem Krieg eine Ausbildung zum Lithographen absolvierte, wandte sich in den 1960er Jahren den illustrierten Kinderbüchern zu. Sein Markenzeichen wurden die sogenannten Wimmelbilder, Bilder, auf denen viele Menschen viele unterschiedliche Dinge machen, eingebettet in eine gemeinsame Szene. Für Kinder, wie auch für Erwachsene, gibt es unendlich viel zu entdecken. Dabei hat Mitgutsch eine zeichnerische und malerische Qualität entwickelt, mit der die Figuren lebendig werden und ihre Handlungen zuweilen zwar witzig und liebenswert, aber nicht lächerlich wirken. Unzählige Kinder wuchsen seither mit Mitgutschs Bildern auf. Er erhielt dafür mehrere Nominierungen zum Deutschen Jugendbuchpreis, den er schließlich mit seinem Buch "Rundherum in meiner Stadt" 1969 gewann. Mitgutsch lebt und arbeitet in München.

        Geometria, à Renato Des Cartes anno 1637 Gallicè edita ; postea autem unà cum Notis Florimondi de Beavne, In Curia Blesensi Consiliarii Regii, Gallicè conscriptis in Latinam linguam versa, & commentariis illustrata ; operâ atque studio Francisci à Schooten, in Acad. Lugd. Batava Matheseos Professoris, Nunc demum ab eodem diligenter recognita, locupletioribus Commentariis instructa, multisque egregiis accessionibus, tam ad uberiorem explicationem, quàm ad ampliandam hujus Geometriæ excellentiam facientibus, exornata. Editio secunda, multis accessionibus exornata, & plus alterâ sui parte adaucta.Amsterdam: Elzevir, 1659-1661.

      A fine copy of van Schooten's important second edition of the <i>Geometria</i>, Descartes's <i>magnum opus</i> (DSB), and one of the key texts in the history of mathematics. Descartes' "application of modern algebraic arithmetic to ancient geometry created the analytical geometry which was the basis of the post-Euclidean development of that science" (PMM). It "rendered possible the later achievements of seventeenth-century mathematical physics" (M. B. Hall, <i>Nature and nature's laws</i> (1970), p. 91). "The mathematical community learned about the wealth of Descartes's new ideas through the works of van Schooten ... In the second edition the commentaries were enlarged, and van Schooten included the work by his students van Heuraet, Hudde, Huygens and de Witt. This edition served as the basic textbook for the generation that, in the last quarter of the century, took the lead in introducing differential and integral calculus" (Jahnke). Newton, in particular learnt his Descartes from this edition: "There can be no doubt that Newton read the <i>Géométrie</i> in Schooten's second Latin edition" (Whiteside, <i>Papers</i> I, p. 7, n17). Newton's own heavily annotated copy of this edition is held in Cambridge University Library (NQ.16.203)<br/><br/> The <i>Géométrie</i> first appeared (in French) as an appendix to Descartes' <i>Discours de la Méthode</i> (1637). Frans van Schooten (1615-60) first saw the <i>Géométrie</i> at Leiden, as Descartes had come there to supervise the printing of the <i>Discours</i>. Van Schooten published a Latin translation in 1649, adding his own extensive commentary. "The great success of Schooten's edition led him to prepare a second, much enlarged one in two volumes (1659-1661), which became the standard mathematical work of the period... In the second edition Schooten not only greatly expanded his commentary, but also added new material including an example of Fermat's extreme value and tangent method and a peculiar procedure for determining the center of gravity of parabolic segments. Since Fermat was not mentioned in the latter connection, it is likely that Schooten came upon the procedure independently, for he usually cited his sources very conscientiously. "In the first edition (1649) Schooten inserted Debeaune's rather insignificant <i>Notae breves</i> to the <i>Géomérie</i>. The commentary of the second edition contained valuable contributions by Huygens dealing with the intersections of a parabola with a circle and certain corollaries, as well as on an improved method of constructing tangents to the conchoid. Schooten also included longer contributions by his students: Jan Hudde's studies on equations and the rule of extreme values and Hendrik van Heuraet's rectification method. <br/><br/> "Volume II of the second edition of the <i>Geometria</i> (1661) commences with a reprinting of Schooten's introductory lectures [<i>Principia matheseos vniversalis, sev Introductio ad geometriæ methodvm Renati Des Cartes</i>]. This material is followed by Debeaune's work on the limits of roots of equations [<i>De aequationum natura, constitutione, & limitibus opuscula duo</i>] and then by de Witt's excellent tract on conic sections [<i>Elementa curvarum linearum</i>]. The volume concludes with a paper by Schooten's younger half brother Pieter on the algebraic discussion of Descartes' data [<i>Tractatus de concinnandis demonstrationibus geometricis ex calculo algebraïco</i>]. This edition shows the great effort Schooten devoted to the training of his students and to the dissemination of their findings" (DSB, under Schooten). <br/><br/> F. Cajori, <i>A History of Mathematics</i>, p. 174 ("Of epoch-making importance"); I. Grattan-Guinness (ed.), <i>Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 1640-1940</i> (2005), Ch. 1; N.

        Autograph Musical Quotation Signed, small oblong 8vo, n.p., 1970

      Copland draws a music stave on which he pens three bars of music he titles, "Fanfare (Third Symphony)," and signs with date, "Aaron Copland 1970." Copland incorporated musical themes from "Fanfare for the Common Man," into his Third Symphony. Matted in light tan board, ready for framing. The decade of the 1940s was arguably Copland&#39;s most productive, and it firmly established his worldwide fame. His two ballet scores for Rodeo (1942) and Appalachian Spring (1944) were huge successes. His pieces Lincoln Portrait and Fanfare for the Common Man have become patriotic standards. Also important was Copland&#39;s Third Symphony, composed in a two-year period from 1944 to 1946, his foremost symphony and the most popular American symphony of the 20th Century.

        Autograph Musical Quotation Signed, small oblong 8vo, n.p., 1970

      - Copland draws a music stave on which he pens three bars of music he titles, "Fanfare (Third Symphony)," and signs with date, "Aaron Copland 1970." Copland incorporated musical themes from "Fanfare for the Common Man," into his Third Symphony. Matted in light tan board, ready for framing. The decade of the 1940s was arguably Copland's most productive, and it firmly established his worldwide fame. His two ballet scores for Rodeo (1942) and Appalachian Spring (1944) were huge successes. His pieces Lincoln Portrait and Fanfare for the Common Man have become patriotic standards. Also important was Copland's Third Symphony, composed in a two-year period from 1944 to 1946, his foremost symphony and the most popular American symphony of the 20th Century.

The copper discs are the most interesting, they date from the C18th and are auction lot tags.

      Tokyo: Tsukiji Shoka, 1970. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Soft cover. Near Fine/Near Fine. This is a first edition, first printing of Ken Ohara\'s critically acclaimed photobook \"One\" published by Tsukiji Shoka, Tokyo in 1970. Ohara emigrated to the U.S. as a young man and was an apprentice to both Richard Avedon and Hiro. \"One\" is a compendium of 500 faces which were chosen randomly in the streets and parks of New York and photographed in identical, tightly framed compositions.

Measuring approximately 10.5 x 9 inches, the book is bound in stiff photographically illustrated wrappers with the very rare photographically illustrated dust jacket. The book is in Near FINE condition with the inevitable darkening of the page ends that is common to this title and very minor wear to the wraps. The dust jacket is in Near FINE condition with a bit of edge wear to the extremities and corners with the head of the spine area of the jacket showing some minor creasing and a very minor tear. Cited in \"The Open Book\" by Andrew Roth and \"The Photobook: A History\" by Parr & Badger. In 1974 his work was included in the landmark \"New Japanese Photography\" exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
