        Les Diners de Gala

      New York: Felicie, Inc, 1973. First English Language Edition. Hardcover. Good/good. First English Language Edition. Hardcover. 12 1/4" X 8 3/4". 322pp. Signed in black felt-tip marker by Salvador Dali to copyright page. Very heavy edgewear to gold foil dust jacket, with extremities rubbed through foil, heavy scattered rubbing and scratching, and small open tears to head and tail of spine. Dust soiling and sunning to verso of dust jacket. Pictorial cloth over boards featuring Dali's gastronomic art, with upper board and spine lettered in black and publisher's device stamped in white to upper board. Bumping and rubbing to extremities, with moderate to heavy edgewear and small tear to tail of spine at edge of rear board. Hard bumping to head of spine, resulting in light creasing to top inner corner of most pages. Lean to spine. Front hinge tender. Binding remains sound. A hint of dust soiling to verso of front free endpaper. Pages are clean and unmarked. An admittedly quite worn copy, but, in our humble opinion, it would take much more to diminish the glory of Dali's erotic, surreal, and luxuriously illustrated "gastronomical odyssey," especially when bearing his signature. "The Jaw is our best tool to grasp philosophical knowledge." Acquired via USPS Postal Auction.

        LOS FOUR: ALMARAZ / DE LA ROCHA / LUJAN / ROMERO

      Art Gallery, University of California, Irvine & Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Irvine & Los Angeles, CA 1973 - One continuous 10 x 118" sheet printed recto only folded neatly vertically in eighths to make a 16pp leporello fold out, profusely illustrated in duotone. Designed by Frank Romero. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. This is the graphically innovative sixteen page artist book cum catalogue produced by the members of Los Four in conjunction with their historic 1973 survey exhibition held at the Art Gallery at the University of California, Irvine and subsequently the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Comprised of local artists Carlos Almaraz, Roberto "Beto" de la Rocha, Gilbert "Magu" Lujan, and Frank Romero, the work of Los Four was a highly important and influential part of the burgeoning Chicano Art movement of the seventies. Printed with a visually striking split rainbow fount, it features four parallel photographic narratives that run horizontally along the length of its accordion-fold pull-out accompanied by biographical statement by each of the four artists. A bright, most handsome example of this exceedingly uncommon ephemeral item limited to one thousand, five hundred unnumbered copies that was the only printed documentation of the exhibition. 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.

        Histoire de ce qui s'est passé au royaume du Japon l'annee 1624.Paris, Sebastien Chappelet, 1628. 8vo. With a woodcut Jesuit seal on the title page. Contemporary tanned sheepskin, blind-stamped with a fleur-de-lys.

      Alt-Japan-Katalog 1319; De Backer & Sommervogel VI, col. 1973; Cordier, Japonica, col. 311; Lach & Van Kley III, p. 376 & 403; WorldCat (2 copies). Very rare, first and only edition of a translation into French of the "Annual Letter" for 1624, the annual account of the Jesuit missions in Japan written for their superiors in Rome. Although possibly written by Jesuits in Japan, the text was edited by Rodrigues Girão in Macao. First published in its original Italian as a standalone book in 1628, it was immediately translated into Latin, French, Dutch and German. The letter describes the Great Edo Martyrdom of 1623, when 50 Christians were crucified on the orders of the Shogun. Added to that are lives of the principal martyrs and descriptions of previous persecutions of the Christians in Japan, whose religion had officially been banned in 1614. The book ends with various papal letters of support written to the Christians in Japan, which are present both in their original Latin and in French translation. With a library stamp and a manuscript date on the title-page. Some spots and waterstains in the margins, especially in the first 30 pages and some browning; small tear in the final page and stains on the final endpaper. Paste-downs are damaged and loose at several corners and front endpaper is missing. Binding rubbed, particularly on the spine. A good, structurally sound copy.

        Typed Letter Signed to a fellow philosopher

      New York, 1973. unbound. 1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, New York City, November 22, 1973. Exceptional typed letter with one handwritten line in which Barrett shares his NYU private phone number. Written to fellow philosopher Henry David Aiken, reflecting on their long friendship and the fact that both are getting older, in part: "...This is a love-letter to you, in lieu of seeing you. It doesn't do for seeing you, talking with you, but for the time being it must do. We shall see each other soon. Here we are, you and I, mired in the last crisis of all, so Erikson tells us, none more to go through, that's luck, but what a fucking indignity after all those other crises, adolescence, youth, middle age, what not, to have another tunnel to crawl through. You are the most intelligent man I've ever known, friend brother father once, and I wanted to talk with you about all this. I'm no longer a reader of Beckett; I've become one of his characters. I think you're the only philosopher in the United States who would understand me when I say it. For me it came about this way. I had been drinking too much. Alcohol dehydrates. In the middle of the summer, the heavy viscous New York summer, I had a heat seizure in the New York subway. My legs gave out under me. I was helped out alive. But I knew fear as I'd never known it before. When the body gives way, you begin to think, really think. Think what? In the time closing around you, you think of the few things that we may have left to do, the few people you really want to see. I thought of you. If I'm ever to do anything again, ever write anything again, it will only be after talking with you. If I%u2019d had you to talk with, this last book of mine would have been a lot different and a lot better. Dear friend: take care, take heart, I crawl forward a little, and you too crawl. Maybe we will crawl out of this god-damned tunnel yet." Henry David Aiken (1912 - 1982) was the author of "Age of Ideology." Natural folds; light wrinkling and spotting. Very good(-) condition. Professor of Philosophy at New York University from 1950 - 1979. He is best remembered for his work "Irrational Man.

        The Awakenings.

      London: Duckworth, 1973. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Oliver Sacks on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Hailed by The Washington Post as, "One of the most beautifully composed and moving works of our time." The Awakenings tells the story of sleeping-sickness epidemic of 1918 which caused hundreds of survivors to slip into a paralysis with similarities to advanced Parkinson's disease. These patients, only occasionally able to communicate or move, were nearly all institutionalized for life, their ranks increasing every now and then with similarly afflicted men and women. Sacks came to work at a long-term care facility shortly before the first exciting results with L-dopa and Parkinson's in the late 1960s; his patients soon embarked on dramatic, difficult recoveries from up to 50 years of torpor. He documents their spiritual and medical obstacles with great care to portray their individual personalities, long suppressed but finally released.

        Poet and the Rent

      Flossmoor, Ill[inois].: David Mamet. 1973. First. Quarto. 41pp. Mimeographed playscript printed in purple, printed rectos only, prong-bound into manila folder, hand-titled by Mamet on front wrap: "Poet and the Rent by David Mamet. This Copy Belongs To David Mamet" and with the number "19" in upper right-hand corner. Very good or better. David Mamet's personal copy of his second play. The title-page bears his printed copyright notice for 1973, from his hometown of Flossmoor, Illinois. Heavily annotated throughout in his hand, with dialogue rewritten on the verso of the title page and on another page, and on the inside of both wrappers. Also bears a pencil sketch on the rear wrapper of what appears to be a set, presumably in his hand; as well as a separate laid-in mimeographed leaf on blue paper providing a rehearsal and performance schedule and the locations on the Goddard College campus where they would be held. The play was first performed in March of 1973 at Goddard College in Vermont, where Mamet was a student and taught. The original cast included Oscar-nominated actor William H. Macy, who was Mamet's student and frequent collaborator and who made his directorial debut with a 1975 version of the play. This is very much a working production copy, with Mamet making changes, striking out lines he didn't like, inserting new dialogue and noting new ideas as they occurred to him. From the estate of Fritzie Sahlins. Sahlins was a co-founder with her husband Bernie, of Second City Theater Troupe, and worked with Mamet on his first full-length play, The Duck Variations, one year earlier. This play was published much later as Poet and the Rent by Samuel French in 1981 as an acting edition and (adding a "The") as The Poet and the Rent by Grove Press in 1986 in the omnibus edition Three Children's Plays. Overall the most substantive, heavily annotated, and earliest playscript of Mamet's that we've seen. OCLC locates no copies, although the finding aid to Mamet's papers at the Ransom Center seems to indicate that they have a copy with corrections in an unknown hand. .

        Cetology. A systematized exhibition of the whale in his broad genera: natural history excerpts from "Moby Dick" edited and illustrated by Ronald Keller

      The Red Angel Press, New York and Bremen, Maine 1973 - Designer binding on artist's book, the text from an edition of 100 copies, all signed and numbered by artist / printer / publisher, Ronald Keller. Page size: 9-5/8 x 10-3/4 inches; 48pp. Bound by Coleen Curry: extraordinary design extending across both panels, executed in gray water buffalo leather binding with laced on boards and sewn 'montage sur onglets' on cords (enabling complete opening of the 5 double-page spreads and the shaped text surrounding these woodcuts; edge-to-edge gray water buffalo leather doublures; blue, gray and silver silk embroidered end bands - just enough sparkle to suggest sea spray; okawara paper hand-dyed blue and gray by binder used for fly leaves and onglets. The inlay across the cover is collaged layers of top and back pared leathers, pressed and sanded multiple times to create texture and depth; collage mounted on an alligator belly split that was pre-tooled with silver foil using binder's custom made brass roulette. The title, CETOLOGY, is tooled in silver gilt on front panel to right of bas relief, the letters in all caps in a barely perceptible arabesque (think gentle wave swell). Both inlay and collage painted with micaceous iron oxide, silver, gray, blue acrylics. The original brown covers with Ronald Keller's woodengraving of whale skeleton in black are bound in at the beginning of the book. Signed by the artist, Coleen Curry, and dated 2016, with her artist's device, in silver gilt on bottom left back turn-in. Housed in custom-made blue cloth over boards clamshell box lined with gray suede, gray buffalo leather label on spine with title in silver gilt, smaller leather label with author's name at bottom. The artist notes her design inspiration was threefold: 1) Melville's text and Keller's art regarding the remarkable size range of cetaceans from a 1.5 meter porpoise to the majestic 30 meter blue whale, 2) her own fascination with how some whales carry up to 1000 pounds of whale barnacles on their bodies and, serendipitously, 3) her bindery overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Northern California where her design process was inspired by a dozen sightings of a mother Humpback and her calf breaching off the coast during in the late fall of 2015. She tells us she strove to create textured barnacles, the salty fresh scent of a turbulent ocean, and the awesome graceful motion of cetaceans swimming in light shimmering waves. The collage attempts to create that motion and texture by suggesting an abstracted pod of cetaceans varying in size and class. Ms. Curry has admirably succeeded. Her binding more than a cover; it is a bas-relief that is elegance itself. The entire production is wonderfully executed and perfectly suited to the natural world that both she and Ronald Keller, inspired by Melville's great text, sought to capture.Ronald Keller's text is hand set and printed letterpress in Plantin and Times Roman on straw-colored laid paper. The seven pages with original woodcuts by Ronald Keller are printed on straw colored Nideggen paper. Of these, two are triple gate fold pages with shaped text surrounding the woodcut images of two whales. These two woodcuts are printed in brown and black. The remaining images are printed in black (bit of smudging from woodcuts). The size of each mammal is in proportion to the others. A most ambitious first book, succeeding admirably, enhanced by this graceful binding by Ms. Curry. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Uomo con bastone.

      1973 - E’ morto a 92 anni l’ artista che immortalò Mussolini e Goebbels. Ma dal ’37 fu un antifascista in rivolta contro ogni potere Winkler, lo scultore di regime che divenne re della provocazione In un bronzetto aveva raffigurato il "critico d’ arte" col sedere piatto e la testa a forma di sciacquone mentre scrive vuote parole nell’ aria. L’ opera illustra con eloquenza il reciproco disamore fra la critica e Othmar Winkler, lo scultore altoatesino morto l’ altro ieri notte all’ ospedale Santa Chiara di Trento all’ eta’ di novantadue anni. Dalla vita burrascosa e solitaria appare chiaro che Winkler non ha fatto molto per guadagnare consensi. La sua ultima provocazione e’ del ’ 95. Invitato a una collettiva della Provincia di Trento, mando’ un "Enigma di Pinocchio" con appeso al naso del burattino un barattolo di feci personali per contestare la "degenerazione dell’ arte"; l’ opera gli venne respinta perche’ la "merda d’ artista" aveva gia’ avuto, nel 1961, il noto precedente di Piero Manzoni. Eppure ci fu un periodo, sette anni su novantadue, in cui Winkler fu lo scultore piu’ "ufficiale" che si possa immaginare: nel 1931, dopo aver visitato una sua mostra al Circolo della Stampa di Roma, Mussolini volle posare per lui (due ore al giorno per due settimane). Come d’ abitudine, l’ esempio del duce fu immediatamente seguito dai gerarchi: e Winkler scolpi’ i busti di Ciano, Teruzzi, De Bono, De Vecchi, Bottai, Marinetti e persino di Goebbels che ando’ a ritrarre fino a Berlino. Scultore di regime, dunque, e al piu’ alto livello. Ma un bel giorno, nel 1937, addio camicie nere. Il trentenne Othmar butto’ in strada i busti in gesso dei gerarchi, fuori dal suo studio romano di via XX Settembre, e prese il treno braccato dalla polizia. Fini’ a Oslo, dove frequento’ il pittore Edvard Munch e divenne antifascista, convinzione che si rinforzo’ l’ anno dopo quando, a Berlino, fu testimone degli orrori perpetrati dai nazisti contro gli ebrei nella "notte dei cristalli". Nel dopoguerra, il suo estro ribelle si diresse contro la classe dirigente ("i politici di oggi mi sembrano peggio di quegli altri, che se non altro avevano una corrusca grandezza" disse), in chiave soprattutto anticlericale, come quando raffiguro’ un cardinale in sella a un maiale, con la falce e martello sulla stola; oppure come quando le suore di Maria Bambina gli ordinarono una "Via crucis" e lui le ripago’ con i grattacieli e la locomotiva del Progresso che schiacciavano il Cristo, mentre la spada dell’ Anticristo era coperta da un ramoscello d’ ulivo. Allegorie bizzarre, se vogliamo contorte, indubbiamente eccentriche come il suo modo di essere ribelle e solitario, di volta in volta fascista e antifascista, anarchico e comunista, blasfemo e credente; che nel bene e nel male racchiude i tormenti di un secolo lungo quanto la sua vita. Cesare Medail. Firmato in basso a destra. Formato: China acquerellata su carta di cm 64x50. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo.

        Image formation by induced local interactions: examples employing nuclear magnetic resonance" in Nature 242, 1973, pp. 190-191

      - FIRST EDITION OF THE NOBEL PRIZE WINNING PAPER IN WHICH LAUTERBUR HIS INVENTION AND GENERATION OF THE FIRST MRI (Magnetic Resonance Images). Lauterbur is known as the father of the MRI, an invention whose benefits can hardly be overstated. Working in 1973 at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, the American chemist Paul Lauterbur "developed a way to generate the first MRI in 2D and 3D, using gradients" (Nature Physics Portal). In this paper, Lauterbur describes his imaging technique - one that removed the usual resolution limits due to the wavelength of the imaging field. To do this, "[Lauterbur] used two fields: one interacting with the object under investigation, the other restricting this interaction to a small region. Rotation of the fields relative to the object produces a series of one-dimensional projections of the interacting regions, from which two- or three-dimensional images of their spatial distribution can be reconstructed" (ibid). Image formation, then, involves "a point in an object characterized through its joint interaction with two external fields. The method is demonstrated by producing images of two water-filled glass capillaries using NMR techniques. "First a linear magnetic field gradient is imposed on the object, and then the protons of the water are also exposed to a radio frequency (RF) field. Since the expected resonance frequency and relaxation times of the proton depend on the local magnetic field, the gradient creates a spatial 'scan' of the NMR properties of the object. If the direction of the gradient is rotated relative to the object, a MRI can be built up" (Gedeon, Science and Technology in Medicine, 499). Lauterbur shared the 2003 Nobel Prize in Medicine with Mansfield for discoveries concerningMRI. CONDITION & DETAILS: Full volume. London: Macmillan. 4to. (11 x 8.25 inches; 275 x 206mm). Ex-libris bearing only a small stamp on the first page. The volume is assembled from individual issues so there is no title page or table of contents. No wrappers.

        Captain Cook's Florilegium. A selection of engravings from the drawings of plants collected by Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander on Captain Cook's first voyage to the islands of the Pacific, with accounts of the voyage by Wilfrid Blunt and of the botanical explorations and prints by W.T. Stearn [with] Captain Cook's Florilegium: A note on its production by Joy Law, 1976

      London: Royal College, 1973. Large folio, with 30 engravings; a fine copy, in the original black Nigerian goatskin and Japanese silk, housed in a protective buckram case. One of the finest botanical productions of all time. The Royal College of Art's printing of these original eighteenth-century copper-plates appeared in an edition of only 100 numbered copies on specially handmade paper, presented in a specially designed binding by Zaehnsdorf of London. The edition was fully subscribed long before it was completed.When Cook's first voyage returned to London, the original botanical drawings were made into detailed and accurate paintings under Banks' supervision, with reference to the collection of actual specimens. Following this they were engraved, and we know that Banks intended to oversee full publication of the collection of engravings. In fact, only a proof impression was made and the undertaking abandoned. The British Museum (Natural History) holds the original copper-engraved plates, as well as the drawings and specimens themselves, and a set of the proof impressions made from the copper-engravings.Between 1900 and 1905 lithographic copies were made of 318 of these proof impressions and published as "Illustrations of Australian Plants collected in 1770". The copper-plates themselves remained unused, until in 1960 it was decided that the Royal College of Art should print a selection of the most beautiful. The result, after thirteen years of planning and trials, was this splendid production, which for the first time showed the extraordinary strength of the images. Perfectly printed, rich impressions in strong black ink, they show the important botany of the Cook voyage to great advantage, and at the same time make it a matter for regret that no eighteenth-century edition appeared.
