        Marges de la philosophie

An exceptionally bright copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author to French philosopher, writer and translator Roger Munier (1923?-2010) on the front free endpaper, "Pour Roger Munier, fidèlement, J. Derrida". Munier's many translations include Octavio Paz, Roberto Juarroz and Heidegger, with whom he forged a lasting friendship when he stayed in the Black Forest to perfect his German in 1949. Munier later introduced Heidegger to René Char. His obituary in Le Monde described him as a passionate writer and thinker and a mystic, whose favourite mode of expression was the "fragment". His main influence, apart from Heidegger, was Meister Eckhart. Derrida and Munier both contributed to L'Endurance de la Pensée (1968), a book of collected writings on Jean Beaufret. In 1967 Derrida sent Munier a copy of his recently published De la grammatologie. After having read it Munier sent him a warm congratulatory letter discussing Heidegger and positivism.

We took a dream, we perfected the technology to make it real, and we followed it all the way. Our adventures in the new world of space proved once more that America can do what it wills itself to do, if it applies to the muscle, the recourses, and the heart to get the job done."" The photograph has been inscribed by Johnson to noted Lincoln scholar and collector Arnold Gates (1914-1993). "

        Sashin yo Sayonara [Bye Bye Photography, Dear]

      Tokyo: Shashinhyoron-sha. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY MORIYAMA in both English and Japanese (kanji). "Sashin yo Sayonara (Bye Bye Photography) is the most extreme monument of the Provoke period, indeed one of the most extreme photobooks ever published. Daido Moriyama pushes both the form of the photographic sequence and the photograph itself to the limits of legibility, with a brilliant barrage of stream-of-consciousness imagery culled from his own pictures, found photographs - such as shots of car accidents - and images taken from the television set. An notion of 'good' technique is thrown out the window... The photographic language is one of blur, motion, scratches, light leaks, dust, graininess and stains, like Robert Frank or William Klein on speed. "Moriyama's vision is entirely consistent, and his willingness to be led to the edge of photography's coherence is the photographic equivalent of Surrealist automatic writing by a camera that almost has a mind of its own. 'I wanted to go to the end of photography', he declared, and the book is a summation of the Provoke period. It reads like a jerky hand-held cinéma vérité film. The pace is frenetic, the image bombardment never lets up, and we reach the book's end in a state either of breathless exhaustion or on an image-fuelled high. the tone is so ambiguous that it is not clear whether we are experiencing a dream or a nightmare, exhilaration or despair - or both at the same time" (Parr and Badger, The Photobook, I). Roth 101. Tokyo: Shashinhyoron-sha, 1972. Quarto, original printed stiff wrappers, original dust jacket. With rare original ephemera laid-in (as issued). Book fine, with the usual creasing to spine; dust jacket with a little toning to spine and a few scattered spots of light soiling. A superb signed first edition of possibly the most influential Japanese photobook.

SIGNED by Moriyama in Japanese and English in an early hand (most signed copies on the market have been signed within the past ten years). The photographer's third book: a masterpiece of Japanese photography, and the book that best illustrates the conceptual ideals and vision of the Provoke photographers. Here Moriyama pushes the boundaries of the medium: assembling images from a variety of sources, placing them in a tumultuous and discordant anti-sequence, and assaulting the viewer with full-page grainy, blurry, and sometimes indecipherable pictures. (Parr / Badger, v1, 298; Roth 218; Open Book 290; Auer 543). Light inevitable creases at the spine, small production flaw to the rear end paper; a near fine copy in wrappers in a near fine jacket.

Surface marks to jacket and a slight paper adhesion on the rear panel, short tears to jacket at spine ends, still attractive and very good. Faint wear and discoloration to book edges.Inscribed by Mailer "To Buzz and Carol These were the years, hey gang? Love Norman May '72". Buzz and Carol Farbar were longtime friends of Mailer's from the publishing business - Buzz was involved in Mailer's three movies (Maidstone, Wild 90 and Beyond the Law), playing Buzz Cameo in the improvised gangster film "Wild 90" which is the subject of the essay "Some Dirt in the Talk" in this collection. Years later Buzz was arrested in a sting operation trying to buy a kilo of cocaine (actually a harmless white powder being shopped by an undercover agent). In return for a promise of a radically reduced sentence, Buzz was convinced to wear a wire to a lunch at Armando's in Brooklyn with Mailer where he would get Norman to admit that he was the money guy in an international hashish ring run by Mailer's onetime associate Richard Stratton. It didn't work out and Buzz was given a harsh 6 year sentence. His wife Carol divorced him in 1985 and he ended up tragically committing suicide after being released from prison. Needless to say, rumors about Mailer's involvement in the drug smuggling and in Buzz's silence on the matter have made the rounds over the years. A terrific association with a close associate and one of the more puzzling episodes in one of the great literary lives of the 20th century. Size: Octavo (8vo). Quantity Available: 1.

        Report on Planet Three and Other Speculations

      London: Victor Gollancz. 1972. First. First edition. Ownership signature of Ian Macauley, fine in a slightly spine-faded, near fine dustwrapper. Receipt from the publisher laid in. Inscribed by Arthur C. Clarke to his protege, one-time secretary, and longtime friend Macauley; "To Ian, who is welcome to steal any of it. Arthur. Lo. Aug 72." Macauley was the dedicatee of Clarke's first published hardcover novel, Islands in the Sky, and was an award-winning New York Times journalist. He also edited Clarke's book of collected essays, Greetings, Carbon-Based Bipeds! (2000). Clarke wrote the last chapter of Childhood's End, while visiting Macauley in Atlanta in 1952, where he was reportedly greatly influenced by their discussions. A nice association copy of this miscellany, mainly speculations on space, and some reprints of earlier essays. Macauley has made a pen emendation in the text, apparently while preparing the essays for the collected volume. .

        New York, New York

      Magyar Helikon, Budapest 1972 - With 96 photographic reproductions, many double-page. First edition. In the original dust jacket. (132) p. (two tracing paper leaves and one folding leaf are included). ?In 1968 the photographer György L?rinczy took advantage of the Hungarian government's decision to relax its rigorous laws on citizens travelling abroad. The result was his book New York, New York, which projected a rather less jaundiced view of the Big Apple than that of many home-grown photographers. As a foreigner's vision, and in terms of photographic outlook, L?rinczy's perspective clearly has affinities with that of William Klein, but his manic exuberance seems to run on pure energy, without the psychological tensions that underpin Klein's more realistic and informed vision of the city. It seems unlikely that L?rinczy saw the work of any of the Japanese photographers of the day, but his book has a similar 'anything goes' feeling, akin to the totally spontaneous style of someone like Daido Moriyama, who coincidentally, was photographing in New York around the same time. L?rinczy's style is rough, raw and uninhibited, in the best stream-of-consciousness manner. But he has nevertheless thought about New York, New York as a book, not only laying it out in a dynamic cinematic style, but employing such devices as printing one or two pages on tracing paper, or utilizing extreme grain, blur and even solarization. The later, surprisingly, renders his depiction of the city's energies more rather hallucinatory feeling that L?rinczy seems to have experienced on encountering this most vibrant of cities. L?rinczy clearly had a whale of a time in the headquarters of consumer capitalism, catching up on the 1960s and tasting some of its forbidden fruits, such as rock bands and experimental theatre groups. This excited, carefree, though not naive view of New York makes a refreshing change from the inbred cynicism of the streetwise native". (Parr-Badger: The Photobook. Phaidon, 2004.). Scores to the dust jacket at rear panel. [Attributes: First Edition]
