In spite of the initial difficulty in dating the sketchbook, seeing as there were no indications as to when the drawings were done, it has finally been possible to place them at the end of 1900, thanks to the help of Picasso himself, who places their execution at the time of his first trip to Paris. On the pages of the album a view of the surrounding reality was shaped: thirty characters of different ages and sexes, belonging to different social strata. This series of drawings was done in the streets and parks of Paris. One of 1,000 copies of which this is No. 836.Minor shelf wear, soiling and rubbing to box. Text in Spanish, French and English.

        Joan Miro-A L'Encre II-1972 Mourlot Lithograph

      1972 - "A L'Encre II" by Joan Miro, Unsigned Lithograph printed in 1972. The overall size of the Lithograph is 14 x 10.5 inches. The condition of this piece has been graded as A: Mint. Here is some supplemental information about the Lithograph: First printing Joan Miro color stone lithograph published by XXieme Siecle 1972, printed by Mourlot.Creating a lithograph requires quick drawing without hesitations or alteration, a solid and bare composition, free shapes in a fluid space. Pursuing this, Miro uses black ink with a range of values and refined tones, reaching wild and playful effects. With elements derived from Catalan traditional art and a spatiality, Miro gave his objects and symbols a proper life as subjects of stories from other worldly microcosms - the ideal reflection of a world longed for by the artist.

        Problems of statistical physics. Autograph manuscript signed

      1972. Uhlenbeck, George Eugene (1900-1988). Problems of statistical physics.

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 “The Development of the Physicist’s Conception of Nature in the Twentieth Century,” held in honor of Paul Dirac’s 70th birthday. The paper was published the following year in The Physicist’s Conception of Nature (1973), edited by Jagdish Mehra.

        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.
