        Kinbaku Taizen / Sadistic play of Bondage

      Haga Publications, Tokyo 1971 - Small 4to. 304pp. Red wraps in photographic dustwrap with Obi band. Numerous black & white, duotone and colour images. Text in Japanese and English. Probably Shinoyama's best book. Made in collaboration with Dan (who's a legend in the SM world). According to Dan- "My book editors often confuse S/M with cruelty and they want me to write some 'punishment tale' for them. This type of story is out of my realm. It just gives me the creeps. Rather, my concept of S/M is 'distorted sexual desire' or extreme disorientation. It's a male fantasy derived from love. from seeing a beauty suffer through the sense of shame. Therefore, my style contains a romantic, aesthetic, and sometimes decadent fragrance." [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Float, E.A.T., Blue

      New York: The Museum of Modern Art 1971 - Limited Edition, number 9/10. Motorized plastic sculpture in stenciled and spray-painted cardboard box. SIGNED and numbered on the battery case door at the base of the sculpture. Apparently a limited edition release of the more common white Float sculpture also issued by MoMA via their gift shop. The spray-painted stencil reads "E.A.T. / BLUE / 9-10 / R.B. '71". Dated a year after his seminal work on the Pepsi Pavilion, created by Experiments in Design and Technology (E.A.T.). In addition to the animations for which he is best known, Robert Breer also created a series of "floats", motorized abstract shapes that he would parade, often through rural landscapes. This MoMA edition represents a miniaturized version of the Float sculpture series. Manufactured by Bandai, the Japanese plastic toy producer. Sculpture tested, but not working, otherwise appears near fine. Box with long, closed tear at the top fold, some creases, and overall signs of light wear. Scarce. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Crow Wakes.

      Woodford Green, Essex: printed by Alan Tarling for Poet & Printer,, 1971. Twelve Poems. Small octavo. Original vellum-backed patterned boards, titles to spine and front in black. Fine. First edition, first printing, signed and numbered by Hughes not once but twice, one of the scarce 100 copies retained by the poet. The title page verso is signed "No. 30 Ted Hughes" and the front free endpaper signed and numbered "Ted Hughes 18/88". The printer Alan Tarling informed the bibliographers Sagar and Tabor that "These poems were excluded for personal reasons from [Hughes's] Crow opus... There were 200, a hundred each going to poet and printer plus 30 review or academic copies. None of mine was signed and each cost £2.25, though I gave some to friends and relatives. All the 'academic' copies were gratis, and said as much in an extra colophon... I don't know how TH's copies were distributed or whether or not they were signed". Hughes had in fact numbered and signed all his copies on the title page verso from 1 to 100, but later apparently overlooked that he had done this and signed what were presumably his remaining copies from 1 to 88 on the front endpapers.

        Album Apollinaire : iconographie [Presentation copy for Sonia Delaunay]

      Réunie et commentée par Pierre-Marcel Adéma et Michel Décaudin. [Paris] : Gallimard, [1971]. First edition. Small octavo, limp full leather with gilt decorated and lettered spine, pictorial dust jacket; a presentation copy, the half title inscribed by the authors for the artist Sonia Delaunay 'A Madame Sonia Delaunay, en souvenir de simultaneisme, avec le sincère hommage des auteurs / M. Décaudin P. Marcel Adéma'; pp 315, [2], black and white photographic illustrations throughout; a fine association copy. This publication is essentially an extended pictorial essay documenting the life, work and immediate influences of the poet and art critic Guillaume Apollinaire. Apollinaire was a member of the artistic circle of Sonia and Robert Delaunay, and he coined the term Orphism to describe the use of pure abstraction pioneered by the two artists. Orphism aimed to express the ideals of Simultanism - the existence of an infinitude of interrelated states of being. This concept is fundamental to Sonia Delaunay's work, a fact which is alluded to by the authors in their dedication.

        Hexagano '71, Complete Set of 13 issues

      La Plata: (self-published), 1971-1973. Slightly musty odor, overall near fine in printed envelopes.. First Edition. A complete run of the thirteen issues of Hexagano '71, Antonio Edgardo Vigo's mail art sequel to Diagonal Cero. Each issue contains several contributions, including visual poetry, illustration, essays, telegrams, and calls for submission. While Vigo was the driving force behind Hexagano (terming himself the "editor irresponsible"), the overall content was drawn from a wide range of international contributors from Argentina, Latin America, Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Though not overtly political, the restrictions and censorship imposed by Argentina's military junta provide an underlying force to Vigo's oblique strategies of artistic discussion and dissemination. Throughout, Hexagano subverted and challenged the assumed hierarchies of publication; Vigo eschewed pagination, colophons, editorial credits. Instead of numbered issues, he followed an eccentric lettering system, naming the issues a, ab*, ac, b*c, b*d, b*e, cd, ce, cf, de, df, dg and e. Following the final issue of Hexagano '71, published in 1974, Vigo would expand upon the global correspondent model with the publication of his next mail art journal, "The International Book".

Tall, thick 8vo: xxix,[1],586,[6]pp. Publisher's coarsely woven oatmeal-colored cloth, spine and upper cover lettered in gilt, decorative end papers, top edge stained pale lime-green, fore-edge untrimmed; pictorial jacket (featuring Larry Rivers's full frontal nude portrait of the poet with penis erect), with publisher's code 10/71 on rear flap. A superb production in Fine condition, tight, square, and unmarked; About Fine jacket (price-clipped), vivid and bright. From the dust jacket flap: "This collection bring together for the first time all of the poems that have so far been discovered-more than five hundred . . . " In fact, tales are told of O'Hara's friends finding his poems stuffed into sock drawers and of O'Hara writing some of his best-known poems in the middle of a party, on the Staten Island Ferry, during lunch breaks. "Such casualness regarding publication and composition became part of O'Hara's 'official' poetics in his mock-manifesto 'Personism,' in which he deduced, 'While I was writing [a poem] I was realizing that if I wanted to I could use the telephone instead of writing the poem.'" (The Literary Encyclopedia) It seems something of a minor miracle, then, that this important collection ever saw the light of day. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        The Jolly Corner

      Aquarius Press 1971 - First free-standing edition, after issues in magazine and collection formats. Dark grey-brown linen double clamshell case with letterpress text and 21 resist-ground etchings with engraving by Peter Milton, case 20-1/8 x 16-1/2 in., text leaves 19-1/2 x 15-7/8 in., etchings 10 x 15 in. on Heavyweight Buff 15 x 19 in. One of 150 copies on Rives from the limitation of 184, signed by Milton and numbered 3/150 on the colophon. The text fascicle collates 9 loose folios: 1 l. (front cover, title recto, copyright verso), 1 l. (half-title recto) and [1 l.], a folio folder for Plate II-2 as frontispiece (repositioned from second print fascicle), 6 ff. (pp. 7-28, with two blank pp.), 1 l. (p. 29 recto) and 1 l. (colophon recto), 1 l. (rear cover, half-title recto). Three print folios I, II and III correspond to the chapters (text excerpts on each first leaf recto), each fascicle containing seven loose prints (but plate II-2, signed by Milton, inserted as frontispiece in the second text folio). The etchings were pulled under the artist’s supervision at Impressions Workshop in Boston. The Press of A. Colish in Mount Vernon printed the letterpress. The front cover of the case is embossed with the double door motif taken from Plate III-3, each half with a gilt-ruled black morocco label lettered in gilt respectively “HENRY JAMES” and “PETER MILTON.” Slight scuffing and rubbing of case cover cloth, all else fine. McNulty 62-82. “The Jolly Corner” was first published in The English Review, vol. 1, no. 1 (December 1908), and was included as parts of The Novels and Tales of Henry James (Charles Scribner's Sons, 1909) and The Uniform Tales of Henry James (Martin Secker, 1919). This magnificent production of the Aquarius Press and Peter Milton is the first free-standing edition of this “ghostly tale,” given concluding place in Harold Bloom’s archetypal selection in The Daemon Knows (New York: Spiegel & Grau, 2015). “Henry James,” Bloom prefaces, “the master of his art, nevertheless congratulates his own daemon for the greatest of his novels and tales.” “The Jolly Corner” is built around juxtaposition, the old world and the new, the hard “‘swagger’ things, the modern, the monstrous, the famous things,” confronting the “spirit,” “the perfection nothing else could have blighted,” of “a small still scene where items and shades, all delicate things, kept the sharpness of the notes of a high voice perfectly trained, and where economy hung about like the scent of a garden.” The questing, layering introspective tension, set overtly as a clash of architecture (always admirable symbol for the craft of authorship), is palpable: “If he had but stayed at home he would have discovered his genius in time really to start some new variety of awful architectural hare and run it till it burrowed in a gold mine.” James’s protagonist Spencer Brydon is visiting ancestral “annals of nearly three generations” after 33 years. (Emerson and Hawthorne stand as Brydon’s stern forebears in Plate I-1.) The same number of years before writing “The Jolly Corner” James was at work on The American, at the onset of his transplant into “Europe.” The decade of the 1900’s beheld James’s glorious triad – The Wings of the Dove, The Ambassadors, The Golden Bowl. On the tails of Twain and Crane it was, as well, the muscled “swagger” decade of Dreiser, Norris, London, the Muckrakers. Milton’s Brydon is James himself at the time of writing (compare Coburn’s 1905 photograph and Sargent’s 1913 portrait), stalking his daemon, “the hot breath and the roused passion of a life larger than his own, a rage of personality” that “fitted his at no point, made its alternative monstrous.” Uniquely in James, the denouement is just perhaps a requited love story, an awakening “of a man who has gone to sleep on some news of a great inheritance, and then, after dreaming it away, after profaning it with matters strange to it, has waked up again to serenity of certitude and has only to lie and watch it grow.”

        DUTCH DETAILS

      The Octopus Foundation & Sonsbeek 71, Deventer, THE NETHERLANDS 1971 - np (40pp), 116 b&w illustrations. Text in Dutch and English. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "Dutch Details" is Ed Ruscha's innovatively-designed artist's book published in conjunction with the Sonsbeek 71 festival that documents sequentially-photographed walks across bridges over ten Dutch canals in Veendam, Stadskanaal, Musselkanaal and Ter Ape. Each view is reproduced across the recto of a single 4 ¼ x 30" page folded vertically in the middle. An internally bright, handsome example of the exceedingly uncommon 1971 first and only edition (entry B14 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999" which is also cited on pages 198-199 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book") limited to an estimated three thousand unnumbered copies - virtually all of which were destroyed following the exhibition - showing typical mild age-toning along with some light wear and creasing, a tiny surface abrasion, and a few patches of mild foxing to its white covers. There is 2 ¼" long browned dampstain along the middle of the foredge of the front panel, and a white adhesive label reading "American Distributor: / Wittenborn and Company / 1018 Madison Ave., New York, N.Y. 10021" is affixed to the title page. Still in all, this is a most presentable copy that is near-unique in that the edges of the folded pages are uncut and therefore not hinged with tape of what is with the exception of the legendarily scarce "Stains" portfolio, the most elusive of all of Ruscha's artist publications. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

Carl Gustav Jung wurde als zweiter Sohn des reformierten Pfarrers Johann Paul Achilles Jung (1842–1896) und seiner Frau Emilie (1848–1923), Tochter des Basler Antistes Samuel Preiswerk, in Kesswil, Kanton Thurgau, geboren. Die Familie Jung stammte ursprünglich aus Mainz; der gleichnamige Grossvater Karl Gustav Jung (1794–1864) emigrierte 1822 nach Basel und wirkte dort bis 1864 als Professor für Medizin. Carl Gustav war sechs Monate alt, als sein Vater ins Pfarrhaus von Laufen nahe beim Rheinfall umzog. Vier Jahre später zog die Familie nach Kleinhüningen bei Basel. Als er neun Jahre alt war, wurde seine Schwester Johanna Gertrud («Trudi») geboren. Nach dem Tod seines Vaters am 28. Januar 1896 musste Jung als junger Student für den Unterhalt seiner Mutter und seiner Schwester sorgen. Ab 1895 studierte Jung Medizin an der Universität Basel. In dieser Zeit trat er dem Schweizerischen Zofingerverein bei. In seiner frühen Studienzeit beschäftigte er sich u. a. mit Spiritismus, einem Gebiet, das damals, wie seine Biografin Deirdre Bair 2005 schrieb, «als mit der Psychiatrie verwandt» angesehen wurde. Sein Interesse daran wurde zum einen durch zwei unerklärliche «Poltergeistphänomene» in seinem ersten Studiensemester geweckt: Ein plötzliches Zerreissen eines Tisches und sauberes Zerspringen eines Brotmessers habe er beobachtet. Jung besuchte von 1894 bis 1899 Séancen seiner Cousine Helly Preiswerk, die in Trance mediale Fähigkeiten zu haben schien, sowie zwei Jahre lang, von 1895 bis 1897, die wöchentlichen Séancen eines «Gläser- und Tischrücker-Kreises», der sich um ein fünfzehnjähriges «Medium» gebildet hatte. Seine Mitarbeiterin Marie-Louise von Franz äusserte dazu mit Bezugnahme auf Jungs Ausführungen über Die psychologischen Grundlagen des Geisterglaubens: «Diese Erfahrung veranlasste ihn, längere Zeit alle Geistererscheinungen überhaupt als autonome, aber prinzipiell persönlichkeitszugehörige ‹Teilseelen› anzusehen.» Jung spezialisierte sich auf Psychiatrie. Interesse an diesem Gebiet hatte er bereits aufgrund der Aufgaben seines Vaters Paul als Pastor und Konsulent Irrenanstalt Basel (vermutlich von 1886/87 bis zu seinem Lebensende am 28. Januar 1896). Ausschlaggebend für Jungs Entscheidung war die Lektüre von Krafft-Ebings Lehrbuchs der Psychiatrie für praktische Ärzte und Studierende, in dem Psychosen als «Krankheiten der Person» beschrieben werden, was für Jung «die beiden Ströme meines Interesses» als «gemeinsame[s] Feld der Erfahrung von biologischen und geistigen Tatsachen» verband. 1900 wurde Jung nach seinem Staatsexamen als Assistent von Eugen Bleuler in der Irrenheilanstalt Burghölzli in Zürich tätig. Während dieser Zeit entstand aus seinen Beobachtungen des Phänomens der gespaltenen Persönlichkeit, die er anhand von Protokollen spiritistischer Sitzungen gewonnen hatte, 1902 seine Dissertation Zur Psychologie und Pathologie sogenannter occulter Phänomene. Im Winter 1902/03 assistierte Jung bei Pierre Janet am Pariser Hôpital de la Salpêtrière. Seine Forschungen am Burghölzli über Gehirngewebeproben und seine Arbeit mit der damals populären Hypnose zur Heilung der Symptome psychischer Krankheiten befriedigten Jungs Suche nach dem Entstehen und der Natur von Geisteskrankheiten nicht. Erst die Fortführung der von Wilhelm Wundt entwickelten Assoziationsstudien zusammen mit seinem Kollegen Franz Beda Riklin führten Jung zu einer ersten Antwort. Die Ergebnisse seiner Assoziationsexperimente, verknüpft mit den Überlegungen von Pierre Janet in Paris und Théodore Flournoy in Genf, brachten Jung zur Annahme der von ihm so genannten «gefühlsbetonten Komplexe». Er sah darin die Bestätigung von Sigmund Freuds Theorie der Verdrängung, die ihm die einzig sinnvolle Erklärung für solche sich autonom verhaltende, aber dem Bewusstsein schwer zugängliche Gedankeneinheiten war.; Quelle Wikipedia.
