        ECLATS ET FUMEES PAR LA CAMPAGNE

      - Alès, Rivières, Pierre-André Benoît, 1972. In-8 (18x23) en feuilles sous chemise illustrée d'une eau-forte. Très bel ouvrage d'artiste tiré à 24 exemplaires seulement; il comporte 4 gravures en noir de VIEIRA DA SILVA (dont celle de couverture) et 6 pages de texte. EDITION ORIGINALE. Très bon état. On ne présente plus Pierre-André Benoît, poète mais surtout l’un des plus célèbres éditeurs de livres d’artistes; il ne fut animé que par son bon plaisir et son désir de qualité, sans autre considération commerciale; sa production est pourtant impressionnante (plus de 500 ouvrages), mais il n’est pas que le maître d’oeuvre, il imprime lui-même (il a sa presse), peint, grave, etc ; comme le dit Jouhandeau, son ami : « il garde l’apparence d’un artisan et son style de typographe, d’imprimeur en particulier relève du grand art. » (Chapon ; le peintre et le livre).

In questa versione erano disponibili per la scelta un certo numero di fagiolini verdi. Si chiese ad un/una partecipante di scegliere per una ragione qualsiasi tre fagiolini dal gruppo. I tre fagiolini scelti furono disposti su una superficie per essere fotografati. Io scelsi per una ragione qualsiasi uno dei tre fagiolini. Si fotografò il processo di selezione. Il fagiolini scelto fu messo da parte, gli altri fagiolini scartati. Si aggiunsero due nuovi fagiolini . Venne fatta la scelta seguente e così via. Ogni partecipante rivela strategie sconosciute all'altro giocatore, poiché il processo di selezione continua sino a che tutti i fagiolini sono utilizzati. John Baldessari, Dicembre 1971

        Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs.

      Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York 1972 - First edition. Quarto, original cloth. Signed by Nancy Ekholm Burkert on the half title page. Fine in a very good dust jacket. Kirkus Reviews called this collaboration between Randall and Nancy Eckholm Burkert "a sort of legend even before its time of publication." Jarrell also wrote The Bat-Poet and The Animal Family, a Newbery Honor Book. Jarrell retained the Grimm (and grim) ending to the tale, as the stepmother is forced to dance to her death. Burkert's illustrations are magical, light-filled creations that more than earn the book its Caldecott Honor Book status. This delightful book's extra-large format showcases the fabulously detailed illustrations, alternating two facing pages of art with two pages of straight text. This is an unforgettable interpretation of a well-loved story. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Watership Down

      London: Rex Collings, 1972. First edition of the author's first and most beloved work. Octavo, original brown cloth. Signed by Richard Adams on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A superior example. Although Watership Down was rejected by 13 publishers before Collings accepted it, it has never been out of print, and is Penguin Books' best-selling novel of all time. It won both the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Prize. The title refers to a hill in the north of Hampshire, England, near the area where Adams grew up. The story has its roots in the tales that Richard Adams made up for his young daughters during long car journeys. As he explained in 2007 in an interview with the BBC, he "began telling the story of the rabbits . . . improvised off the top of my head, as we were driving along." He based the struggles of the animals on the struggles he and his friends encountered during the Battle of Oosterbeek in 1944. The daughters insisted he write it down—"they were very, very persistent." After some delay he began writing in the evenings and completed it 18 months later.

        EDWARD RUSCHA (ED - WERD REW -SHAY) YOUNG ARTIST: A BOOK ACCOMPANYING THE EXHIBITION OF PRINTS, DRAWINGS AND BOOKS OF EDWARD RUSCHA AT THE MINNEAPOLIS INSTITUTE OF ARTS APRIL 18 - MAY 28, 1972

      (RUSCHA, EDWARD). Ruscha, Edward and Edward "Gus" Foster. EDWARD RUSCHA (ED - WERD REW -SHAY) YOUNG ARTIST: A BOOK ACCOMPANYING THE EXHIBITION OF PRINTS, DRAWINGS AND BOOKS OF EDWARD RUSCHA AT THE MINNEAPOLIS INSTITUTE OF ARTS APRIL 18 - MAY 28, 1972. Minneapolis, MN: Minneapolis Institute of Arts, 1972. First Edition 1/2000. 12mo. Illustrated Boards. Catalogue Raisonné. Good + (But Incomplete)/No Jacket - As Issued. np (436pp), profusely illustrated in b&w. Designed by Edward Ruscha and Edward Foster. With a biography and exhibition checklist. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Published in conjunction with a 1972 Minneapolis Institute of Arts retrospective of Edward Ruscha's work on paper, this is the charmingly designed exhibition document that the artist classified as an artist's book in his self-compiled 1982 SFMOMA bibliography. Included here is a full catalogue raisonné of Ruscha's graphic art and artist books, a complete listing of the words used by the artist in his work from 1959 through 1972, and an original photo piece from 1971 entitled "Tanks, Banks, Ranks, Thanks". Designed in the format of the wartime-era Big Little Books of Ruscha's youth, the artist's intentional use of cheap, highly-sulfurous newsprint pages bound in thin paper-covered boards has insured that four decades later its condition is almost always compromised. This example shows some usual wear, rubbing, and sunning to its green covers but none of the typical chipping and paper loss to the exterior hinges and spine. Its fragile textblock is tight though browned - another condition flaw associated with this title - with the slightly age-toned business card of Edward Ruscha wittily reading EDWARD RUSCHA / (ED-WERD REW-SHAY) / YOUNG ARTIST" laid in, as issued. Unfortunately, the accompanying card of curator Edward A. (Gus) Foster is lacking. All in all, while incomplete, this is a sound, most presentable copy of this elusive, highly sought-after little gem (entry M25 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999") limited to two thousand unnumbered copies. 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.
