      Paris: Telemondial, 1973. Original French Grande poster and double sided French flyer for the 1973 Situationist film by René Viénet, which repurposes the 1972 Hong Kong martial arts film "Crush," directed by Kuang-Chi Tu, overdubbing the dialogue to create "a critique of class conflicts, bureaucratic socialism, the failures of the French Communist Party, Maoism, cultural hegemony, sexual equality and the way movies prop up Capitalist ideology" through the Situationist technique of détournement (Richard Metzger, dangerousminds.net). While the film is readily available for viewing online, original paper relating to it is rare, with OCLC locating no material. Poster: 47 x 63 inches (120 x 160 cm). Folded as issued.

        QUE GUERRERO! (QUEL GUERRIER)

      Galerie Sagot-Le Garrec, Paris 1973 - Materia: Grabado original del siglo XX. Goya. Publicación: Paris,Sagot-Le Garrec, 1973. Técnica:Aguafuerte y aguatinta. Medidas: 355 x 228 mm [mordida] 470 x 365 mm. (papel) Datos publicación: En 1877, publicó Charles Yriarte en la revista de París LArt en un artículo titulado Goya, aguafortista cuatro estampas que evidentemente, pertenecían a la serie de Los Disparates. Las cuatro planchas habían pertenecido al pintor Eugenio Lucas, su actual propietaria es Madame Le Garrec. Estas cuatro planchas, pudieron haber sido grabadas en Francia, por haberse estampado en este pais y por tratar dos de ellas temas circenses, según opinión de Lafuente Ferrari. Nosotros creemos que todas las planchas fueron grabadas en España. De estas cuatro planchas solo se conocen dos ediciones estampadas, la primera de 1877 y la segunda de 1973, a esta última, pertenece este grabado. No sabemos con exactitud la tirada de esta segunda edición, pero creemos que fue de 320 ejemplares, por lo tanto a los 18 grabados iniciales hay que añadir estos cuatro que describimos titulados: Lluvia de toros; Otras leyes por el pueblo; Una reina del circo; Qué guerrero, con lo que la colección completa de Los Disparates, se compondría de 22 grabados. Notas: Los Disparates o los Proverbios es una serie (con toda probabilidad incompleta) de veintidós grabados realizados al aguatinta y aguafuerte, con retoques de punta seca y bruñidor, realizada por Francisco de Goya entre los años 1815 y 1823. Se trata de la serie de estampas de más difícil interpretación de las que realizó el pintor aragonés. En ella destacan las visiones oníricas, la presencia de la violencia y el sexo y la puesta en solfa de las instituciones relacionadas con el Antiguo Régimen y en general, la crítica del poder establecido. Pero más allá de estas connotaciones las estampas ofrecen un mundo imaginativo rico relacionado con la noche, el carnaval, y lo grotesco que constituyen un enigma tanto estampa por estampa como en su conjunto. Conservación:Muy buen estado. USS1

        Suburbia

      1973 - OWENS, Bill. Suburbia. (San Francisco): Straight Arrow, (1973). Oblong quarto, original photographic stiff paper wrappers. $1700.Early edition of the pioneering photobook, boldly inscribed on the half-title, "Pqt, Can you avoid suburbia? Bill Owens," with 96 pages of black-and-white halftones, many paired with captioned quotes that add to the book's "indelible poignancy" (New York Times)."Almost every photo in Suburbia repays attentive looking, with details that turn an average photo into a great one". A groundbreaking exemplar of documentary photography" (New York Times). In Suburbia, Bill Owens accomplished an "exemplary, no-frills documentary tone". one of the most popular and successful American photobooks of the 1970s" (Parr & Badger II:24). "Suburbia is too sympathetic and too conflicted to be simply another ironic deadpan document". This delicate balance of outsider and insider perspectives turns the resulting book into a critical self-portrait""one that's almost painfully observant but withholds judgment" (Roth, 224). First edition, second issue, preceded by December 1972 edition. Open Book, 296. Images clean and bright; light edge-wear to original wrappers. A near-fine copy, scarce inscribed.

Quarto, original white laminated photographic boards. $3500.First edition of Petersen's scarce first photobook, signed by him on the title page, with over 120 photogravures by this leading Swedish photographer whose frank "diarist approach, frequently directed at the fringes of society"(Parr & Badger), first emerged in this landmark work.Swedish photographer Anders Petersen first attracted international attention with this photo-essay on a Stockholm amusement park and later confirmed the acclaim with his photobook Café Lehmitz (1978). "Like Robert Frank, Petersen is drawn to those on life's margins, a poet of the seedy and the subversive". His images possess". what Petersen describes as "˜a kind of poetical sadness" (Observer). In Gröna Lund, his outstanding inaugural work, Petersen early reveals that distinctive "diaristic approach, frequently directed at the fringes of society," which has become his trademark (Parr & Badger I:231).

        A CONFEDERATE GENERAL FROM BIG SUR - INSCRIBED TO THOMAS MCGUANE

      London: Picador / Pan Books Ltd., 1973. First UK Paperback Edition. Octavo (19.75cm); illustrated wrappers; xii, 116pp. Inscribed by the author on the title page: "This copy is for Tom McGuane / Richard Brautigan / July 16, 1973." Text edges slightly tanned, mild wear and creasing to wrapper extremities, with vertical reading crease to left edge of front wrapper; Very Good. Housed in a custom quarter leather and marbled paper clamshell case. A well-read copy of Brautigan's first novel, bearing a typically subdued inscription to one of his closest friends. Tom McGuane was an on-again, off-again roommate of Brautigan's during the early years he lived in Bolinas, California. Over a nearly 20 year period, the two men would travel together and live near each other between California, Montana, and Key West. They ran in many of the same creative and artistic circles, both men admiring each other's work. McGuane would write a lengthy and generous review of an omnibus edition of Brautigan's work (Delacorte, 1970) in the February 15, 1970 issue of The New York Times Book Review. In William Hjortsberg's exhaustive 2012 biography of Brautigan, he goes on at length to describe how deeply Brautigan admired McGuane - idolized him, even - as an author, as a man, and as a husband. Books inscribed by Brautigan to close, personal friends, are uncommon. Not in Barber.

Near Fine condition with great eye appeal. This folio is inscribed on the ffep: "Dear Tom: This is our way of saying we love working with you - and our great esteem for everything you write and do. Love Mathilde (and Al)." There is also a later ink inscription from Shepard, gifting this score to a collector. Thomas Z. Shepard's archive is already residing at Yale University; it contains virtually every item related to his prolific career so this is a significant acquisition opportunity. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Burgundy stamped cloth with gilt letters on spines; illustrated, cream dust jackets with brown lettering; map endpapers. 716 total text pp.; 200 plates in third vol. with 736 BW illus. Typed notes laid in (see comments). Text is in German. Series: Römische Forschungen der Bibliotheca Hertziana, Band XXI. A three-volume set documenting the building of palaces in Rome during the High Renaissance period during the early 1500s. The first volume supplies detailed narrative text. The second volume is a catalogue outlining each building. The third volume contains the BW illustrations, including then-contemporary views, drawings, floor plans, renderings, and more. Each volume has maps of Rome on the flyleaves, with numbers to indicate locations of buildings featured. Each volume carries a bookplate indicating that it was once owned by art donors Paul and Gabriele Geier. Paul Geier was with the US Embassy in Rome, where he and Gabriele became good friends with Bernard Berenson, owner of Villa I Tatti, which later became Harvard University's international center for research and scholarship in art history. The villa is renowned for its library, for which many of the funds were donated by the Geiers. The laid-in notes are "Bemerkkungen Frommels zur Ausstellung Raffaele Architetto. 1984" - from a 1984 conversation with renowned scholar, Christoph Luitpold Frommel (and typed later) about an exhibition of architectural works by Rafael. The exhibition was held in Rome from February to June, 1984, and Frommel was the lead author for the catalogue. A nice and unique reference set. Good (Books VG and tight in general. Former owner's stylish book plate on FEP of each volume.
