        Shashin yo Sayonara / Bye, Bye Photography, Dear

      Tokyo: Shashin Hyoron-sha (1972) - First Edition. Small quarto. SIGNED by Moriyama in Japanese and English. 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, faint hint of the endemic separation at the text block, a near fine copy in wrappers in a near fine jacket with a tiny stain barely visible at the head of the spine. Very nice copy overall. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: Lorrimer,, [1972]. Twelve colour pictorial cards loosely inserted in the original printed card folder. Cards in excellent condition, folder rubbed and creased. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author to the novelist Alexander Trocchi on the front of the card folder, "For Alex from Christopher". The two writers met in Paris during the early 1950s, when Logue joined the staff of Trocchi's literary magazine Merlin, and Logue later wrote that, "Between 1952 and 1955 I saw Alex, as he was to me, several times a week; but in the twenty-eight years following his departure from Paris until his death in 1984 we met no more than fifteen times, seldom alone, and twice in police courts". He recalled how Trocchi "had befriended me, published me, persuaded others to publish me, had helped to curtail my suicidal urge, overseen the publication of my first book, and borne with my so-called love affairs" (A Life in Pieces: Reflections on Alexander Trocchi).

        Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph

      Millerton, NY: Aperture, 1972 Hardcover First edition, first printing. Very Good minus hardcover with a light bump to the crown and light handling wear in a Very Good minus dust jacket with two one-inch tears/creases, light wear at the edges and extremities, a small crease to one corner of the front flap, and light soiling. All dust jackets are protected by a clear mylar cover. BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, IN A BOX. Photographs and statements by Diane Arbus; edited and designed by Doon Arbus and Marvin Israel. 184 pages; 80 b&w full-page photographic plates; 9.5 x 11 inches. When Diane Arbus committed suicide in 1971, only a relatively small number of her most important pictures were widely known. The publication of Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph in 1972--along with the concurrent retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art--offered the general public its first encounter with the breadth and power of her work. Now considered a classic of photographic literature, it is probably the best selling photography book of all time. This copy is the first printing with the plate titled "Two Girls in Identical Raincoats, Central Park, N.Y.C, 1969" which was suppressed in subsequent printings; this edition is also printed on heavier paper than later printings. See: Parr & Badger, The Photobook, Vol. 1, p258; Roth, Book of 101 Books, p214; The Open Book, p284; Auer, 802 Photo Books, p546.

        Marine' (Lithograph from 'Poésies Antillaises')

      Mourlot., Paris 1972 - (Duthuit, Catalogue Raisonne des Ouvrages Illustrés, 37.)An original lithograph drawn by Matisse for 'Poésies Antillaises'. The lithographs were drawn circa 1945 but posthumously printed and published in Paris in 1972 by Mourlot. Printed on Velin d'arches filigrane paper in a limited edition of 250 copies. (There was also a dulux edition of 50 copies with an extra suite of prints printed on japon.) As this lithograph was printed as part of a book, there is a line of text on the reverse of the sheet, this can not be seen from the front of the image. In excellent condition. Sheet size 383cm x 292mm (13 x 8.5 inches)In 1945, following the success of the series of lithographs that he had drawn, inspired by Reverdy’s poetry under the title 'Visages', Matisse began working with several exotic models for the illustrations of an ambitious suite of lithographs that he hoped to do in homage to his friend, the poet John-Antoine Nau.Nau’s poetry took its themes from voyages in the Antilles and in particular to Martinique where the facial sculpture of women from the Islands, with their exoticism and richness, was a great inspiration. Matisse first met him with Signac many years before in 1905, and had great admiration for his poetry.Matisse completed and proofed all the stones for the Poésies Antillaises series in 1945/46. However for some reason the actual edition of the album was never pulled at that time. The work was finally published 18 years later by Mourlot, who scrupulously followed both Matisse's maquettes and final corrected proofs. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The wood engravings of Eric Ravilious (very scarce first edition, first printing)

      Lion and Unicorn Press/ Curwen Press 1972 - NUMBER 33 OF A LIMITED EDITION OF 500 COPIES. This rare and beautifully produced, folio format (420 x 295mm) book was designed by John Carrod for Lion and Unicorn Press, the Royal College of Art’s press. It is printed on heavy Grosvenor Chater’s Basingwerk Parchment paper. Tan woven cloth with black pictorial illustration front and back. Original black slipcase. Folio. Pattern endpapers. 113pp. + Chronological Index. 421 blocks, which represent all Ravilious' engraved work for which copies could be found. "Compiling a volume of the complete wood engravings of a prolific (and unsystematic) artist has presented its problems. Unfortunately most of Eric Ravilious's original wood blocks were accidentally destroyed but six are still in existence. Owing to their fragility they could not be used in the production of this book. Similarly some of Eric Ravilious's work has not survived the ravages of time and the bombing during the Second World War. Where we know of engravings but have not been able to find copies we have listed them in their chronological order in the captions, marked 'no copy found'. All engravings used as decorations in this book appear in their original size and in chronological order. They are: front cover - Christmas card 1934; endpapers - pattern (actual size); half titles - naval periodical 1942; title page - 54 Conceits l933; and back cover Legion Book 1929." Designed by John Carrod at the Royal College of Art. Printed on Grosvenor Chater's Basingwerk Parchment and printed at The Curwen Press. Binding by Henry Brooks Ltd. NUMBER 33 OF A LIMITED EDITION OF 500 COPIES. Binding clean and tight. 3 very small spots on the fore-edge of the book else fine. A thread of the tissue of the slipcase has come loose at a part on the top. Slipcase slightly rubbed. An unusually nice copy of the first printing. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
