        ART WORKERS NEWSLETTER / ART WORKERS' NEWS / ART & ARTISTS [66 Issues, Spanning Length of Full Run]

      New York: National Art Workers Community / Foundation for the Community of Artists, 1971-1989. First Edition. Very good +. Newsprint. Various formats and sizes. About very good plus overall. Most are modestly age-toned as usual but remain clean and readable. Several suffer small rips, but no major losses. Generally well-preserved and housed in three archival Gaylord boxes. A representative broken run of sixty-six issues (out of a total of approximately 125) of this important NYC art newspaper, described by Gwen Allen as “the first artists’ publication to focus sustained attention on artists’ rights.” During its nearly two-decades-long run, the paper changed its name, format, and editors several times, but remained above all political in its motivations and focused on the material conditions of working artists in New York (and throughout the United States). Frequently covered topics included government arts funding and lack thereof, struggles for affordable housing (both before and during the redevelopment of SoHo), wage and payment disputes with galleries and museums, issues of copyright and obscenity law, and health hazards associated with art-making materials. Representative headlines include: “Millions for Art, Pennies for Artists,” “Artists of Soho Face Crisis: Real Estate Speculation... Threaten[s] Community’s Existence,” and “Forces Gather for Long Government Arts Struggle.” The paper often examined regional developments in artist politics throughout the U.S. as well, reporting specific legislation of arts funding and the decisive political players involved, and thus forms a valuable record of arts policy throughout the ‘70s through the Reagan years (with frequent attention given to grants through the NEA and other organizations). Profiles of artists and art-world personalities include Alice Neel, Marcia Tucker, Alexander Calder, and Richard Serra (the latter of whose "Tilted Arc" controversy is covered in detail), and tended to focus on the social dimensions of their work. The newspaper forms a valuable record of the downtown arts scene's political side during the 70s and 80s – not only in its attempts to organize and advocate for its own labor rights, but through an increasing focus on questions of race and gender as well. A more detailed inventory of the collection is available on request. [Allen, ARTISTS’ MAGAZINES, p. 240].

        Canto y grito mi liberacion (y lloro mis desmadrazgos...)

      El Paso, TX: Mictla Publications, 1971. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good/Good. 8-3/4 by 11-1/4 inches. Sánchez's first book, a key collection of poetry from the Chicano Movement. Sánchez spent most of the 1960s in prison where he earned his GED and began writing. He later went on to receive a doctorate and became one of the leading figures in Chicano poetry. Lomelí and Urioste call this book 'An excellent poetic manifesto.' It is also one of the key works of the Chicano Movement. Reprinted several times, this is the only edition in a large format that allows Sanchez's poems to spread out on the page as he intended. Illustrated by Manuel Acosta, with line drawings and two lovely color plates. Reportedly one of 2000 copies, but much scarcer than the print run would suggest. First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a good dust jacket with a four-inch tear repaired with Japanese tissue. With a wonderful inscription to a radical poet of an earlier generation: 'Para Walter Lowenfels--more than an equitable society, mon frere, is the need for a humanistic affirmation. Viva La Causa y que brote la hermandad. Ricardo Sanchez 5/23/72.' A very nice association copy.

        Trumpeter Swan

      New York 1971 - This remarkable, elephant folio lithograph is from the Amsterdam Edition of John James Audubon’s The Birds of America. The work was published in Amsterdam and New York by Johnson Reprint Corporation and Theatrum Orbis Terrarum between 1971 and 1972. This particular lithograph is from set #59 an uncut, unbound edition.The lithographs from the Amsterdam edition are highly respected and sought after because of the detail used in their creation. The complex but accurate process of color photo-lithography was used for printing each image. The publishers also chose to have a woven paper produced of the highest quality using 100% unbleached cotton rags with each sheet bearing a watermark.Only 250 copies of the Amsterdam edition were published and then sold by subscription. The printing was the first recreation of the Audubon plates in elephant folio size in 135 years. This edition is very appealing to the Audubon collector due to the look and feel of that of the original Havell edition. This particular lithograph is from a bound edition, # 153 of 250.

        [Ansichten von Heidelberg und Schwetzingen].[Heidelberg?], Charles de Graimberg, ca. 1826 (views dated 1811-1826). Oblong 16mo? (9.5 x 14 cm). With 47 lithographic views of Heidelberg and vicinity (image size 6 x 10 cm), all coloured by a contemporary hand and highlighted with gum arabic, each with a caption with French on the left and German on the right. Contemporary boards.

      Max Schefold, Alte Ansichten aus Baden (1971), 25427-25430, 25431-25437 (9 of our 33 views of Heidelberg); cf. WorldCat (1 set of 9 similar views); not in Abbey, Travel. Very rare print series, possibly the most extensive set to survive, of some of the earliest lithographic views of Heidelberg, Schwetzingen and vicinity, published and nearly all drawn by Louis Charles François de Graimberg-Belleau (1774-1864). Graimberg was a French royalist nobleman who fled the French Revolution to Germany in 1791 and developed a great love for Schloss Heidelberg for its architectural-historical value and as a symbol of noble culture. The present series gives only his name and seems to correspond closely to the series he published about ten years later, so it appears to be his own edition. Most of the views show the Schloss as it was in Graimberg's time, but a few show it before the fire, based on views by Matthaüs Merian and others. The present set has 33 Heidelberg views followed by 15 Schwetzingen views. The present collection includes four views of the mosque built in the years 1779 to 1795 for Karl Theodor, Elector of the Palatine and Bavaria, situated on his palace grounds in Schwetzingen, a remarkable symbol of religious tolerance in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.With about half the views slightly browned and a tiny marginal chip in the last 2, not approaching the image, but otherwise in very good condition. With a few small tears in the paper covering the boards (mostly at the hinges and the foot of the spine) and somewhat loose in the spine, but the binding is otherwise good. A very rare series of early lithographic views of Heidelberg and vicinity, including the Schwetzingen mosque.

        El Teatro Español Sacado a Luz de las Tinieblas de Nuestro Tiempo por Max Aub. Discurso leído por su autor en el acto de su recepción académica el día 12 de diciembre de 1956. Contestación de Juan Chabás y Martí. Academia Española, Tipografía de Archivos, Olózaga 1, Madrid 1956.

      s.i., [México 1971 - 1ª ed. 16.5x23.2. 39pp. Rústica. Este discurso es una de las grandes bromas de Max Aub; una gran broma gastada contra la triste realidad y cruenta historia real de España en el siglo XX. Por supuesto el exiliado republicano no fue elegido a la Academia en 1956 (aunque la institución sí tuvo a bien respetar las sillas de sus miembros exiliados a pesar de las presiones de las autoridades franquistas) y este librito va creando una realidad paralelo de una España que no tuvo guerra civil. Federico García Lorca vive aun y ha estrenado otras ocho obras teatrales - 4 de ellas bíblicas, según Aub; Alberti otras seis, entre ellas 'María Teresa, mi Amor' y 'El Bastardo'; Miguel Hernández ha tenido gran éxito con sus obras dramáticas, tanto en España como en Alemania; Manuel Altolaguirre, estrena cuatro obras antes de pasar al cine; Salinas, Bergamín, Casona. Al final Aub redondea su trabajo de derribo de tristes realidades con una lista completa de académicos - Lorca (1942), Bergamín (1939), Guillén (1937), Alberti (1940), Moreno Altolaguirre (1939), Cernuda (1947), Miguel Hernández (1952), etc. etc. Dedicatoria autógrafa en la cubierta posterior, fechada en 1972. Fue republicado en 1993 en edición de Javier Pérez Bazo. En WorldCat encontramos una treintena de ejemplares, pero si entramos en cada ficha que se recoge, resulta que todos menos uno (el ejemplar del Colegio de México) son, en realidad la edición de 1993; en la BNE hay 2 ejemplares; otro en la Real Academia; y cuatro ejemplares que recoge el Archivo Virtual. Edición no venal para regalo a amigos del autor; muy raro en el mercado. Al autor le habría hecho, creo, gracia que a los 45 años de su muerte, TODAS las fichas bibliográficas de este libro siguen aceptando como real la fecha y lugar que él inventó para su publicación. Huellas de óxido por los márgenes de la cubierta, interiores muy limpios. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 4 Euros.

        Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream

      New York: Random House, 1971. First edition of the author's second book. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Hunter S. Thompson on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. A very sharp example. The novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is based on two trips to Las Vegas, Nevada, that Hunter S. Thompson took with attorney and Chicano activist Oscar Zeta Acosta in March and April 1971. Thompson wrote that he concluded their March trip by spending some 36 hours alone in a hotel room "feverishly writing in my notebook" about his experiences. The genesis of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream is in that notebook. The book "cemented Mr. Thompson's place as a singular presence in American journalism or, as he once called himself, ‘a connoisseur of edge work'" (New York Times). Adapted into the 1998 film starring Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Torro.

Quarter vellum over marbled boards with small vellum corners. Vellum spine label with gilt titles and designs. All edges uncut. Endpapers lightly age toned. Bookplate of Arthur A.

Several initials and decorations in red and blue. Limited to 193 copies printed at the Platin Press, this being # 66. fine A lavishly produced leaf book and tribute to Peter Schoeffer, pupil of Johannes Gutenberg and Johann Fust, and early printer at Mainz. Schoeffer, who first printed under Gutenberg and Fust, printed under his own name after Fust's death in 1466. Schoeffer produced at least 254 texts, including the Decretum from which the fine leaf here was taken. The leaf is a masterwork of book design, with the main text occupying two columns in the center of the page and the commentary surrounding in a smaller type. Numerous sections are highlighted in red or blue. Vellum incunables are especially scarce, and this leaf book represents one of the few opportunities to obtain an example, especially an example printed at Mainz by someone so closely associated with the invention of printing with moveable type in the West (Disbound and Dispersed 157) 1971

        HOYO ("EMBRACE") : PHOTOGRAPHS BY EIKOH HOSOE

      Tokyo, Japan: Shashin Hyoronsha Publishing House, 1971. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Tokyo, Japan: Shashin Hyoronsha Publishing House, 1971. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 96 pages. Collection of nudes, presented as an Artist Book. One of the greatest erotic art photography books of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Eikoh Hosoe: Oversize-volume format. Cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Eikoh Hosoe. Preface by Yukio Mishima, the greatest Japanese novelist of the 20th century. Mishima famously collaborated with Hosoe on "Ba Ra Kei". Cardboard slipcase with titles printed on black paper that is pasted on the slipcase. Printed in gravure on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper by The Nissha Printing Company in Tokyo, Japan to the highest standards. In pink DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Eikoh Hosoe's "Hoyo". One of the most stunning and most influential explorations of the nude in the history of photography. Abstracted, choreographed down to the smallest detail, and yet sensuous, made palpably so by exquisite gravure printing, these nudes will not be surpassed. As the title suggests, every image is an embrace, showing a completely nude and physically intimate male and female couple, whose interest to us is the line formed by the closeness of their bodies, which remain discrete and never become one despite their proximity. They are re-enacting for Hosoe's camera (if are not actually engaged in) sexual intercourse. But Hosoe's goal - and genius - is to make us see and think not about sex, but about the power of beauty: The erotic is an aesthetic, not a sexual, experience. It's about pleasure, not arousal. Or as one of Hosoe's personal idols famously wrote: "Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power" (Oscar Wilde). An absolute "must-have" title for Eikoh Hosoe collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed and placed in pencil on the half-title page by the artist/photographer: "Eikoh Hosoe Tokyo". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great erotic art photography book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and placed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: While the slipcase is imperfect, the book itself is fine. If both were perfect, this First Edition would command twice as much. A rare signed copy thus. 62 gravure plates. "Ba Ra Kei" and "Kamaitachi" were selected as two of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest artist/photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy.

        History of Portuguese Cartography

      Coimbra: Junta de Investigação do Ultramar-Lisboa, 1971. A good copy.. Two volumes quarto, colour frontispieces and many plates, inscribed by the author; in the original maroon cloth. First edition in English, limited to 1,000 copies. This is a presentation copy of Cortesao's authoritative work, inscribed by him to his fellow-historian and great collector Boies Penrose; a charming letter from Cortesao to Penrose is also included.This study of cartographic history, by one of the pre-eminent historians of Portuguese exploration and map making, deals with developments until the fifteenth century. The first volume has a wider scope than the title suggests, including discussion on early Western cartography and navigational science until the Renaissance as a frame of reference for Portuguese efforts. The second and larger volume focuses in detail on the history of Portuguese navigation, discussing the early Atlantic voyages and the works of Portuguese map makers in the fifteenth century. A third volume, though planned, was never completed.

      New York: Random House, 1971. First edition of the author's second book. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Hunter S. Thompson on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. A very sharp example. The novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is based on two trips to Las Vegas, Nevada, that Hunter S.

        [Ansichten von Heidelberg und Schwetzingen].[Heidelberg?], Charles de Graimberg, ca. 1826 (views dated 1811-1826). Oblong 16mo? (9.5 x 14 cm). With 47 lithographic views of Heidelberg and vicinity (image size 6 x 10 cm), all coloured by a contemporary hand and highlighted with gum arabic, each with a caption with French on the left and German on the right. Contemporary boards.

      Max Schefold, Alte Ansichten aus Baden (1971), 25427-25430, 25431-25437 (9 of our 33 views of Heidelberg); c f. WorldCat (1 set of 9 similar views); not in Abbey, Travel. Very rare print series, possibly the most extensive set to survive, of some of the earliest lithographic views of Heidelberg, Schwetzingen and vicinity, published and nearly all drawn by Louis Charles François de Graimberg-Belleau (1774-1864). Graimberg was a French royalist nobleman who fled the French Revolution to Germany in 1791 and developed a great love for Schloss Heidelberg for its architectural-historical value and as a symbol of noble culture. The present series gives only his name and seems to correspond closely to the series he published about ten years later, so it appears to be his own edition. Most of the views show the Schloss as it was in Graimberg's time, but a few show it before the fire, based on views by Matthaüs Merian and others. The present set has 33 Heidelberg views followed by 15 Schwetzingen views. The present collection includes four views of the mosque built in the years 1779 to 1795 for Karl Theodor, Elector of the Palatine and Bavaria, situated on his palace grounds in Schwetzingen, a remarkable symbol of religious tolerance in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.With about half the views slightly browned and a tiny marginal chip in the last 2, not approaching the image, but otherwise in very good condition. With a few small tears in the paper covering the boards (mostly at the hinges and the foot of the spine) and somewhat loose in the spine, but the binding is otherwise good. A very rare series of early lithographic views of Heidelberg and vicinity, including the Schwetzingen mosque.
