        Bricklin conceptual car design

      circa 1973. Mixed media on paper. Signed "Grasse". 14 1/2 x 22 3/4 inches. Framed. 22 3/4 x 31 inches. Design for Bricklin car company This strikingly handsome sports car design was designed for Malcolm Bricklin's unsuccessful car manufacturing effort of the mid-1970's. Handsomely engineered on the outside, the cars were poorly made and designed within and very few survive. Herb Grasse began designing cars professionally in 1968 for Dodge. He worked for Chrysler, Ford and Nissan, and eventually had his own design firm. From 1973-75, he was Chief Designer for Bricklin. He died in 2010.

        Oars Messages - Seamail

      [Easthampton, NY. 2013]. Unique artist&#39;s book, hand-written and hand-painted by the artist / author, Barry McCallion on cream Rives BFK and black St. Armand paper, signed and dated the printed colophon, "Barry McCallion / January 2013." Page size: 11-15/16 x 9-3/8 inches; 28pp. Bound: loose as issued housed in custom-made black cloth over boards clamshell box with large red "X" - cancellation stamp - on front of box with collaged "stamp" 1-1/8 x 2 inches, hand-drawing in black ink showing oarsman rowing in boat within a roundel, titled OARS MESSAGES with square, cross, circle, and double circle in each of the four corners, title in black on white paper label on spine, fine. The text is written in white ink on black St. Armand paper and the "cancelled stamps" are drawn in black india ink and colored with Winsor & Newton inks, including silver metallic.& The artist / author notes that this book contains notes in the Oarsman&#39;s hand (not legible)and cancelled stamps unique to the messages of 1973. "The Oarsman resolved on his journey in 1970. As he spent the next two years organizing his departure and provisioning his boat, these are his earliest - as well as his most elaborate attempts to communicate. The Oarsman&#39;s journey is not without precedents; Joshua Slocum or Odysseus explore and engage the world from the &#39;boat of self.&#39; Any journey - long or short, actual or fictional - becomes a pattern for life. These drawings afford us a glimpse of the Oarsman. The stamps are cancelled. If we are inclined to be generous, we can infer that they (and he) arrived at their destination." Barry McCallion continues his exploration of the narrative of his created world (or is it his observations of this world?) through chance word and particular image. His creation of the Oarsman - a sailor / traveler who rows (backward of course) towards his mythical destination - is intriguing. His voyages may be autobiographical or completely haphazard. He hoists his sails or locks his oars and is off - and we follow, observing from the sidelines, to places we otherwise would not go. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10643.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        Meet Again

      [Tokyo]: Shashin Hyoron-sha, [1973]. Fine in a fine jacket. Unlike Inakoshi&#39;s first book, Maybe, Maybe (published by Kyuryudo), this title appears not to have been issued in slipcase. 3 copies in OCLC.. First Edition. Quarto. Designed by Kuni Kizawa. Essays by Shinichi Kusamori and Kineo Kuwabara. A conceptual artist&#39;s book executed in photography, with 38 uniform black and white images that appear to be rephotographs or film stills, but are likely neither. The majority of the pictures have hands in them. The closest corollary I can think of are the early black and white advertising rephotographs of Richard Prince.

        HISTOIRE ECCLESIASTIQUE ET CIVILE DE LORRAINE QUI COMPREND CE QUI S'EST PASSE DE PLUS MEMORABLE DANS L'EVECHE DE TREVES & DANS LES EVECHES DE METZ TOUL & VERDUN, DEPUIS L'ENTREE DE JULES CESAR DANS LES GAULES, JUSQU'à LA MORT DE CHARLES V, DUC DE LORRAINE.

      Editions du Palais Royal,, Paris, 1973 - Antoine Calmet, Dom Augustin en religion, naquit le 26 février 1672, à Ménil-la-Horgne près de Commercy, en Lorraine, au sein d'une famille modeste(son père était maréchal-ferrant). Passionné très jeune, par les études, il fut un exégète & érudit lorrain du XVIIIe siècle, connu sous le nom de Dom Calmet, bénédictin de la Congrégation de Saint-Vanne & Saint-Hydulphe. En 1728, Dom Calmet fut appelé comme abbé de Senones, la capitale de la principauté de Salm. C'est dans la grande abbaye vosgienne qu'il travailla & vécut la dernière partie de son existence, entretenant une correspondance avec de nombreux savants. Il y mourut le 25 octobre 1757. Dom Calmet a laissé une ?uvre immense. L'ouvrage le plus connu est son Histoire de Lorraine dont la deuxième édition fut écrite à Senones. C'est aussi à Senones qu'il rédigea une ?uvre à présent oubliée, une Histoire universelle en 17 volumes, à laquelle Voltaire collabora quelques jours en 1753; une Bible en latin et en français, avec un Commentaire littéral & critique sur tous les livres de l?Ancien & Nouveau Testament (Paris (1707-1716), 26 vol. in-4°). Le Commentaire, ?uvre majeure de l?abbé de Senones, qui revenait sans cesse opérer des corrections ou vérifier des traductions, a été reproduit à part sous le titre de Trésor d?antiquités sacrées & profanes, à partir de 1722 en 9 volumes. La réimpression de cette Histoire ecclésiastique & civile de la Lorraine, Nancy, 1728, en 1745-1757, mettra dom Calmet aux prises avec la censure. Réédition de la meilleure édition, qui est celle de Lesure, à Nancy, en 1745. 7 vol., environ 6000 pp. in-4, Reliures plein Skivertex d'éditeur, 1er plat aux armes (trois alérions surmontés de la couronne royale), dos lisse, l'ouvrage est imprimé en fac-similé.

        After Claude

      Farrar Straus Giroux, NY 1973 - A novel that has come to be viewed as an underground classic, by a writer who befriended Alexander Trocchi in Paris in the 1950s. A provocative proto-feminist who routinely defied boundaries and conventions, she supported herself writing pornography for Maurice Girodias's Olympia Press under the pen-name Harriet Daimler; the work often centered around rape fantasies. Reportedly she was the only writer Girodias ever asked to "tone it down." Owens died in 2008, and After Claude was reissued in 2010 by New York Review Books, with an introduction by Emily Prager. Signed by the author. Dampstaining to upper rear board edge; foxing to foredge; near fine in a fine dust jacket. Books signed by Owens are scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Niwa: meitei no kansho to sakutei (

      A rare signed-dated Nakane presentation of his most important early text, a profusely illustrated exposition on the development of the Japanese garden, including construction techniques and use of plants, rocks, and man-made garden elements, with a section on current gardens featuring Nakane's works to 1973, including his celebrated Adachi Museum of Art gardens and his wonderful pond garden at Taizo-in. There is an English summary and the two suites of color photos have English and Japanese captions. The presentation is carefully done in English with pen & black ink on the plum endpaper facing the title page, the signature with an ending horizontal contour flourish. With the same pen & ink, Nakane hand printed his name in English on the facing title page under his name's Chinese characters. The 1981 recipient, Stephen C. (Christopher) Haus was a Henry Luce scholar, studying landscape design in Kyoto. He is now a prominent landscape architect, his own firm established since 1983 in Honolulu. Haus designed the Rainforest Garden at the Strawberry Hill Resort, Jamaica and is a principal designer for Chris Blackwell at the Goldeneye estate. Most of his garden commissions have been in Hawaii including the Garden of Remembrance at Lyon Arboretum, University of Hawaii. His overview of, "Gardens of Hawaii" was published in 2000. PUBLISHING NOTE: Illustration captions in Japanese except for the two extensive color suites that have Japanese and English captions, book made in Japan, printed with black letters, the title within a red framing border, title of English summary given as, "Japanese gardens and phases of their development", the book's alternative title, Niwa meien no kansho to sakutei. AVAILABILITY: Very Scarce, even in Japan: Collectible presentation examples are virtually unobtainable. The New York Botanical Garden is the only American institution to have an example of the first edition. NAKANE [1917-1995]: By consensus one of the three leading Japanese garden designers, theoreticians and teachers of the 20th century after Ueji (Ogata Jihei) and Shigemori Mirei. The Coates essay in the Grove Dictionary, v. 12, p. 101, cites him as one of 7 modern Japanese garden designers of great distinction. Born Iwata City; 1943-graduated from Tokyo University of Agriculture and began as a horticulture technician at the Historical Properties Preservation Department, Kyoto Educational Committee, where he rose to Deputy Director. 1966-Founded his influential Nakane Garden Design Research Institute. Career distinguished by his supervision of the restoration of many of the important classic Japanese gardens in Kyoto (chiefly at historic temples and monasteries) and his original fusions of traditional styles. 1970-Nakane designed the 75 acres Japanese garden at Expo '70 (the World's Fair in Osaka) in collaboration with Kenzo Tange. 1970-Entrance garden design and overall design of the six gardens at the Adachi Museum of Art, using with reverence the phenomenal collection of rocks and red pines of Adachi Zenko. These gardens are universally considered a highlight of Showa period design. 1972-appointed Professor of Environmental Planning, Osaka University of Arts. (Later, became Chair of Department and he would become President of the University.) 1974-Silver Medal at the highly important Vienna International Horticultural Exposition. Late in his career, Nakane designed several notable gardens in the U.S., including at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, Atlanta (1986) and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (Tenshin-en, 1988).

        A Model of Leptons" in: Physical Review Letters, Vol. 19, 1967

      The effort to understand the universe is one of the very few things that lifts human life a little above the level of farce, and gives it some of the grace of tragedy&#148; (Weinberg). First edition of Weinberg&#39;s seminal work on the unification of weak and electromagnetic interactions between elementary particles is the &#39;most cited&#39; work in theoretical physics since the end of World War II (Stanford Top Cites; Lightman, The Discoveries). At the time Weinberg wrote, four forces were believed to drive the laws of physics: gravity, electromagnetism, the strong force (which holds an atom&#39;s nucleus together) and the weak force (which breaks an atom apart, as in radioactivity). Weinberg theorized that the electromagnetic and the weak forces are the same at extremely high energy levels. This &#39;electroweak&#39; theory (as Weinberg termed it) was confirmed by particle accelerator experiments in 1973. In 1979, Weinberg shared the Nobel Prize for Physics with Sheldon Glashow, whom he knew from high school, and Abdus Salam for their collective work on "unifying the weak and electromagnetic interactions between elementary particles, including inter alla the prediction of the weak neutral current" (Nobel Prize Citation). In: Physical Review Letters, Vol. 19, 1967 (full volume). 4to. 10.5 x 8.25 inches (262 x 206mm). [2], 1529 pages, [1], A-1-A14, [2]. Two small stamps on title page; one on the back of the title page. Line drawings throughout. Bound in blue cloth over blue paper boards. Gilt-lettered spine. Very tightly bound. Fine condition.

A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, in a Very Good + dust jacket, SIGNED; TOGETHER WITH the scarce UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOF, SIGNED; TOGETHER WITH Singer&#39;s NATIONAL BOOK AWARD SPEECH, SIGNED; three signed items o, or related to, Nobel Prize-Winning author Isaac Bashevis Singer&#39;s National Book Award-Winning collection of stories "A Crown of Feathers". The first edition, first printing of the book is in Near Fine condition (spine ends gently and lightly pushed, light surface rubbing at spine ends, top edge of page block foxed, a few tiny spots of foxing to base and front edge of page block, minor shelf wear and some minor marking to base of spine and board bottoms), in a Very Good + dust jacket (minor edge wear, minor soiling to rear panel, age toning at flap edges, remnants of price sticker to front flap), and is INSCRIBED, SIGNED, AND DATED BY NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR ISAAC BASHEVIS SINGER TO FELLOW AUTHOR AND FRIEND DAVID MCCULLOUGH. (McCullough twice won the Pulitzer prize -- for "Truman" in 1992 and for John Adams in 2001.) This is a PUBLISHER&#39;S ADVANCE REVIEW COPY of the Book, with the Publisher&#39;s review slip loosely laid in. The UNCORRECTED PAGE PROOF in the Publisher&#39;s original blue wrappers is in Fine condition (with a small spot on the rear wrapper), is housed in a custom box, and is INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY SINGER on the front free endpaper to noted New York bookseller Burt Britten (a/k/a "Burt Britton", co-founder of Madison Avenue&#39;s "Books and Company" who also helped run The Strand bookstore): "To Burt and Kozby / Isaac B. Singer"; A Fine Association copy. The NATIONAL BOOK AWARD SPEECH delivered by Singer in 1975 is in Fine condition, is housed in a custom box, and is SIGNED BY ISAAC SINGER on the front page. (We presume this to be a contemporary copy of the speech and not the sheets from which Singer actually read the speech.) ALL THREE OF THE ITEMS OFFERED TOGETHER HERE ARE RARE. Signed copies of the book&#39;s first printing are quite scarce. Advance review copies of the book are scarce. Association copies are rare. In this copy we have all 3 features combined and signed Association Review Copies, as offered here, are Rare indeed. The Uncorrected Proof of this important Singer book are quite scarce, and signed copies of the Uncorrected Proof are Rare. Finally, in our experience, signed copies of Singer&#39;s National Book Award Acceptance Speech are Rare as well. A remarkable collection of three items related to one of Singer&#39;s important National Book Award-Winning book, two of which are Association Copies, two of which are Advance Copies, and ALL THREE OF WHICH ARE SIGNED BY ISAAC BASHEVIS SINGER. RARE.
