      , 1972. 1972. Uhlenbeck, George Eugene (1900-1988). Problems of statistical physics. Autograph manuscript signed, on yellow lined paper. 30 sheets numbered 1, 1a, 2-21, 23-27, a-c; manuscript is complete despite break in numbering. [1972.] 280 x 215 mm. First sheet a little discolored, small rust stains from paper clip on first and last leaves. Very good. The Dutch-American physicist G. E. Uhlenbeck is best known for his discovery, with Samuel Goudsmit, of electron spin, one of the cornerstones of quantum mechanics. Uhlenbeck and Goudsmit’s paper on electron spin was published in October 1925, when Uhlenbeck was just 24; afterwards, he taught physics at the University of Michigan and several other universities before joining the Rockefeller Institute in 1960. The present paper, describing some of the fundamental problems in statistical physics, was presented at the 1972 symposium on â€

        Bluebeard's Castle.

      Guildford: Circle Press, 1972. Quarto. (5)ff., + 9 pop-up spreads consisting of a french-folded two-page quire. First edition. One of 125 copies, this one out-of-series and likely an artist's proof copy. Illustrated with nine silkscreened structures by Ronald King, together with text by Roy Fisher. This book marks the first collaboration between King and Fisher, and it is also the first pop-up book produced by Circle Press. The book is a response to Bartok's opera, but without the characters of Bluebeard and Judith: instead, King directs his attention to the structure of the castle and teases out the meaning behind the rooms that would be revealed as Judith opened their doors. Fisher's poem provides a narrative counterpoint to King's pop-up structures and hints at the idea of knowledge attained through suffering--a theme made even more poignant by the death of King's son, Danny, who passed away while this book was in production. This title is commonly encountered in loose gatherings housed in an acrylic box; this copy, however, is in a binding of quarter black morocco and cloth boards, with blue paper lettering pieces on the upper cover and spine. This binding is not noted in any checklists from the Press, nor is it mentioned in Cathy Courtney's History of the Press. Fine overall.

        Watership Down

      London: Rex Collings, 1972. First edition of the author's first and most beloved work. Octavo, original brown cloth. Signed by the author on the title page, "Yours sincerely Richard Adams." Fine in an fine dust jacket with a touch of shelf wear. 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.

        Révolutionnaires sans révolution

      Robert Laffont, Paris 1972 - 580 pp. + 16 planches, Fort in-8° (162 x 250 mm), couverture rempliée illustrée d'un dessin original de Man Ray. Non coupé. Un des quelques exemplaires d'auteur numérotés H.C., avec 20 sur vélin chiffon de Lana, constituant l'édition originale. 16 planches de photographies en noir. «André Thirion, né le 14 juillet 1907 à Baccarat et mort le 4 janvier 2001 à Levallois-Perret, est un écrivain français, membre du groupe des surréalistes, théoricien et militant politique. Après avoir été syndicaliste, il devint communiste, parti auquel il adhéra en 1925. Son caractère le mène vers le groupe des surréalistes qu'il intègre en 19281. Ami de Louis Aragon et Georges Sadoul, il participe aux activités des surréalistes entre 1928 et 1934. Sa photo compose le cadre de l'oeuvre de René Magritte, Je ne vois pas la [femme] cachée dans la forêt (1928). Il y figure en dixième position en partant, dans le sens des aiguilles d'une montre, du coin supérieur gauche. En novembre 1930, avec André Breton, il rédige les statuts de l' A.A.E.R. (Association des artistes et écrivains révolutionnaires) que le parti communiste français reprend à son compte, en 1932, en changeant l'acronyme en A.E.A.R. et en excluant les surréalistes. Publié en 1972, sous le titre Révolutionnaires sans révolution, son témoignage se « double sans cesse d'un commentaire critique qui ravive la pensée surréaliste en même temps qu'il en corrige les illusions ». Il participe à la revue Le surréalisme au service de la révolution, appuie le film de Luis Buñuel et Salvador Dalí l'Âge d'or. Il s'éloigne du communisme durant les années 1930. Il milite contre Aragon lors de son départ du surréalisme vers le Parti Communiste Français en 1932. Durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, il intègre la résistance gaulliste. Il devient député du Rassemblement du peuple français à la libération. Son oeuvre se divise en deux groupes : le premier est constitué d'ouvrages autobiographiques ; l'autre de romans politiques et érotiques. Révolutionnaires sans révolution (1972 - Prix Roger Nimier) est l'oeuvre principale du premier groupe. C'est une autobiographie qui relate cette période et analyse le groupe des surréalistes (c.f. Wikipédia). Très bel envoi signé de l'auteur, sur la page de faux titre, à Jeannie et Henri de Clarens (Jeannie, née Rousseau, célèbre espionne qui est la première à avoir pu récupérer des informations sur les V2 allemands). Nous joignons le n° 214 de septembre 1981 de la revue «Le Vocatif», texte surréaliste d'André Thirion, avec «pour Jeannie de Clarens [Signature]» sur la page de titre. Le texte commençant par: «Mes amis Clarens habitent au 25è étage.». Quelques légères marques du temps sur la couverture, superbe pour le reste. Très bon exemplaire. Size: Fort in-8° [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        WOOD ENGRAVINGS OF ERIC RAVILIOUS [Introduction by J. M. Richards]

      Kensington: The Lion and Unicorn Press, Royal College of Art, 1972. First edition, LIMITED, number 80 of the second issue, which was limited to 500 copies. With 113 leaves displaying over 400 of Eric Ravilious' engravings, each leaf printed one side only, with fold-out index leaves. The title-page, front free-fly and colophon page also decorated with Ravilious engravings. Tall folio, in the original binding by Henry Brooks Ltd. of course gray cloth with a large woodcut block on the upper cover in black, the spine lettered in gilt, decorated endpapers. 19pp., 113 ff., 4 ff. index, 2ff. pp. A fine copy, the boards very slightly bowed and with trivial aging, internally very fine and as new. FIRST EDITION AND AN IMPORTANT CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ OF ENGRAVER ERIC RAVILIOUS AND ARGUABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK OF THE PRESS. Six of the over 420 engravings here were reproduced from Ravilious' original blocks, the others (for which the blocks likely no longer existed) were painstakingly reproduced from other sources, all are in their original size and the collection comprises all of his engraved works which could be found and should be considered as complete as could be made possible. The print work was beautifully done by the Curwen Press on Grosvenor Chater's Basingwerk parchment. Ravilious engraved most of these illustrations for books and other publications. His first commission, in 1926, was to illustrate a novel for Jonathan Cape. He went on to produce work both for large companies such as the Lanston Corporation and the smaller, less commercial "Fine Presses", such as the Golden Cockerel, the Curwen Press and the Cresset Press. A handful of the engravings included here were never previously published. Ravilious' career was cut tragically short when, while working as a War Artist, the RAF patrol he was flying on failed to return. After four days of searching, he and the plane's four crewmen were declared lost in action.

        Kosmicheskie dali

      1972. First Edition . Signed. (SOKOLOV, A.K.) LEONOV, Aleskei Arkhipovich. Kosmicheskie dali. Moscow: Ikobrazitel'noe iskusstvo, 1972. Folio (11 by 14-1/2 inches), original marbled blue imitation leather gilt portfolio, metal and enamel cover medallion, original printed self-wrappers; pp. 34, 33 loose color plates. $2800.First edition of Russian cosmonaut A.A. Leonov's work on artificial satellites, with 35 loose color illustrations (17 folding) and 5 additional monochrome red-tone illustrations laid in, signed on the front wrapper by both the illustrator A.K. Sokolov and by Leonov. Text in Russian.This elaborate production by Russian cosmonaut A.A. Leonov concerns artificial satellites and astronautics. ""In March 1965, at the age of 30, Soviet cosmonaut Alexei Leonov made the first spacewalk in history, beating out American rival Ed White on Gemini 4 by almost three months. Floating outside his tiny Voskhod 2 capsule for 10 exhilarating minutes, Leonov felt, he writes, ""like a seagull with its wings outstretched, soaring high above the Earth"" (Air & Space, Smithsonian). Leonov went on to write extensively about his life as an astronaut and about space exploration in general. The wonderful illustrations by A.K. Sokolov display satellites and the landscapes of astronomical bodies as well as space itself in vivid color. The entirety is housed in a handsome publisher's portfolio made of blue imitation leather and bearing a raised metal and enamel medallion with a hammer and sickle. This copy contains two copies of Plate 1, for a total of 35 plates instead of the usual 34. Five additional folio red-tone monochrome illustrations, apparently also by Sokolov, have been laid in; they do not appear to be integral to this edition. The front wrapper also bears an inscription in an unidentified hand in addition to the signatures of Leonov and Sokolov.Small, faint stain on front wrapper/inscription, slight scattered foxing to verso captions of folio plates, light edge-wear to portfolio including small missing piece at top of pocket. A near-fine copy, most desirable signed.

        Diane Arbus

      1972. First Edition . ARBUS, Diane. Diane Arbus. Millerton, New York: Aperture, (1972). Tall quarto, original cream laminated photographic boards, original photographic dust jacket. $3800.First edition, scarce first printing of this highly influential photobook of Arbus’ work, with 80 finely screened black-and-white photogravure plates, images “at once pitiless and engaged, tough and surprisingly tender… with the power to provoke and disturb” (Roth), in original dust jacket.“A photograph,” Diane Arbus once said, “is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.” In this fundamental collection of her work, published posthumously, Arbus offers “a beautiful, sad, moving testament to the human condition” (Parr & Badger I:258). “Arbus’ unique way of not turning a blind eye satisfies something in us… In her photographs the thrill of being left out contends with the dread” (London Review of Books). “Her pictures challenge the basic assumptions on which most so-called documentary photography has been assumed to rest… Her real subject is no less than the unique interior lives of those she photographed” (John Szarkowski). Includes iconic images such as “Jewish giant at home with his parents in the Bronx, 1970” and “Identical twins, Roselle, N.J.” First edition, first printing, with “Two Girls in Identical Raincoats, Central Park, N.Y.C, 1969,” suppressed in subsequent printings.

      1972. First Edition . FRANK, Robert. The Lines of My Hand. (Tokyo: Yugensha, 1972). Folio, original black cloth, original slipcase with mounted cover photograph, original shipping carton. $8200.Limited first edition of Frank’s memorable autobiography in photographs, preceding the Lustrum publication of the same title, one of 500 copies with the photograph “Platte River, Tennessee” mounted on the slipcase.Kerouac called his friend Robert Frank an artist who “sucked a sad poem right out of America onto film, taking rank among the tragic poets of the world.” “One of the key figures in postwar American art-the ‘Manet of the new photography,” Frank was once asked to describe his response to The Lines of My Hand, his unorthodox autobiography. “You look at the road you’ve been on,” he said, “and it comes back instantly” (New York Times). This beautifully produced first edition includes a number of images from Frank’s best-known work, Les Americains, a collection of documentary photographs of American life in the 1950s, particularly among the Beats, along with photographs of Frank’s family and images made during his travels in Peru, Spain, England, France. Published in Japan prior to the Lustrum publication of the same title, “Frank’s great confessional both sums up and marks the end not only of a photographic era, but a final coming to terms with the effects of WWII and the Bomb” (Parr & Badger I:238). With 30-page caption booklet in Japanese, often missing, laid in. From a limited edition of 1000 unnumbered copies, this is one of 500 copies with the slipcase photograph of “Platte River, Tennessee” (remaining copies with slipcase photograph “New York City, 1948”). Open Book, 286-87. A fine copy in original publisher’s wrapping and shipping box.

Photograph measures 40,5 x 30 cm. Very Good Condition, excellent, a rare vintage colour photograph. Fidel Castro is seen here greeting German civilians, after having made a formal public address. This striking vintage photograph shows prominent Communist leader Fidel Castro as he was gaining an important political alliance and eliciting foreign civilian support during his first tour of East Germany. Fidel Castro's visit to Berlin began on June 13, 1972 and at various points addressed the border guards that policed the Berlin Wall to prevent East Germans from escaping to the West. At Brandenburg gate on June 14 in the afternoon he addressed the men charged with shooting East Germans fleeing to West Germany as "the courageous and self-denying border guards of the Free Democratic Party (GDR) People's Army who stand guard in the front line of the entire-socialist community." Later in the evening Premier Castro addressed the Nikolay Bezarin Barracks in East Berlin. Castro spent most of his visit accompanied by Erich Honecker, leader of the German Democratic Republic. In 1974, in Havana, Erich Honecker and Fidel Castro signed an "agreement on cooperation between the German SED and the Cuban Communist Party for the years 1974-1975. The photographer is Hans-Joachim Spremberg (1943-1978), commonly known as Joachim Spremberg, a German photojournalist in East Germany. He was born in Berlin, and documented life in East Berlin, as well as the construction of the Berlin TV tower. He was selected as official photographer for several high state occasions with Free Democratic Party (GDR) Party, and also with communist politician Walter Ulbricht.
