        THE ATROCITY EXHIBITION (Fine Signed Copy)

      Jonathan Cape, UK 1974 - Fine, sharp copy of mesmerising Ballard tapas selection, tasty, spicy and as satisfying as a mixed metaphor utilizing the music of Pink Floyd and class A drugs. The boards are black, clean and sharp, even though there this is the suspicion of the front board's upper corner having had a most gentle encounter with gravity. The spine is tight, rock solid and and aware of the prestige of being associated with the book's wonderfully clean, wholesome pages, and then there's the superbly white, neat and clean dustjacket. The dw is clipped, but bears the official Jonathan Cape price sticker of £2.95. The book is SIGNED BY J G BALLARD ON THE TITLE PAGE. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Congress

      Enitharmon Press, London 1974 - Limited edition of 300 total, of which 50 were signed by the author and translator; an unspecified number were also signed by the artist, Hugo Manning, of which this is one, this copy being number 3 of the 50. A short story, but the longest written, by Jorge Francsico Isidoro Luis Borges, KBE (1899-1986), a literary giant in both the Spanish-language world and internationally. Regrettably never awarded the Nobel Prize, his works are highly regarded and are seen as the precursor to magical realism later typified by authors such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez. "The Congress" can be viewed as a political essay and was Borges' personal favourite; as with many human endeavors it opens with a high-minded goal and ends in ashes. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in gold cloth, white lettering on the spine, ivory laid paper endpapers, tipped-in frontispiece being a reproduction of a pencil sketch by Hugo Manning entitled "Jorge Luis Borges in London, 1971"; small quarto size (approximately 9.75" tall), pagination: (i-vi), 1-17, blank, colophon; issued in a limited edition of 300 total, of which 50 were printed on Glastonbury Coloured Antique Laid paper and, per the colophon page, were signed by the author and translator; this copy is also signed by the artist and it number 3 of the 50. The volume is protected by a clear acetate dust wrapper. ***CONDITION: Fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; the dust wrapper is also fine. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the Abe standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Plastic Surgery. New Methods and Refinements.

      Stuttgart & Stockholm, 1974. Small folio. Original black full cloth with gilt lettering to front board and spine. Red and-papers. A very clean and fresh copy. Richly illustrated throughout. 500, 82) pp.. First edition of the great modern classic of plastic surgery, containing the first description of the pioneering concept of subfacial dissection (the SMAS-technique), which completely revolutionized the field of facelifting. Skoog's "Plastic Surgery" catapulted aging face surgery into the modern era.With this work, now a standard classic in aesthetic surgery, Skoog made the first advances in facelifting since its beginning more than 50 years earlier and began a new era of plastic surgery, shaped it into the field that we know today. In the first 70 years of the 20th century, face lifts were performed by pulling on the skin on the face and cutting the loose parts off. This was known as the cutaneous method. In 1974, Tord Skoog introduced in his pioneering magnum opus the concept of subfacial dissection, which provided suspension of the stronger deeper layer rather than relying on skin tension to achieve his facelift. It is this technique that leads Mitz and Peyronie, in 1976, to describe the anatomical Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System, known as SMAS (a term coined by Paul Tessier, Mitz and Peyronie's tutor in craniofacial surgery, after he had become familiar with Skoog's technique). After Skoog died of a heart attack, the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) concept rapidly emerged to become the standard face-lifting technique, which was the first innovative change in facelift surgery since its beginning ab. half a century earlier. "In 1974, Tord Skoog published his classic text, in which he described a revolutionary facelift procedure. Undermining the skin and superficial subcutaneous mass together as a composite, the cheek mass was then re-suspended using the superficial subcutaneous fascia (later termed the superficial musculoaponeurotic system or SMAS). This approach offered repositioning of the skin along with the superficial subcutaneous mass as a single unit, WITHOUT PLACING TENSION ON THE SKIN. Unfortunately, Skoog died before he was able to work out the nuances to develop his concept into maximally effective procedure." (Neligan, Plastic Surgery, vol. 6, p. 259)

        The Works of John Gardner from the Personal Collection of Nicholas Delbanco

      - A collection of 23 works by John Gardner and associated items from the collection of his close friend and literary executor, the author Nicholas Delbanco. Gardner and acclaimed novelist and critic Delbanco first forged a friendship when Delbanco hosted Gardner during a reading tour at Bennington College in 1974. Delbanco ended up hiring Gardner for the English Department at the College. They and their families began a close professional and personal relationship in which each of the authors strove to critique the other's works in private and promote them in public, Gardner touting Delbanco as "one of the country's best novelists." Each acknowledged the contribution of the other in developing both their theories of literature and for specific elements of their respective works, whether it be Delbanco using Gardner's title *Stillness* for one of his novels or Gardner using Delbanco's writing to help clarify the husband-wife relationship in one of his own works. Delbanco's home and family became a refuge for both Gardner and his first wife during their messy divorce. Following Gardner's death in a 1982 motorcycle accident, Delbanco became Gardner's literary executor; editing and contributing an introduction to Gardner's posthumously published *Stillness and Shadows*. Delbanco's daughter Francesca, to whom the copy of *The King of Hummingbirds* is dedicated and some of the other books are inscribed (and who was formerly an occasional babysitting charge of Gardner's children), has herself published two well-received novels, *Ask Me Anything* and *Midnight in Manhattan*. A wonderful collection of interesting association copies that help detail an important literary friendship. Further details available upon request.

        ILLUSTRAZIONE PER "IL VECCHIO E IL MARE" E. HEMINGWAY

      PARIS, Leblanc, 1974Incisione originale all'acquaforte su carta Arches, numerata (104 / 350) e firmata a matita per mano dell'artista. L'esemplare in oggetto fa parte di una suite di 6 acquaforti per l'illustrazione di un'edizione de "Il Vecchio e il Mare", il romanzo più noto del celebre scrittore Ernest Hemingway. Di tale edizione vennero stampate 1000 copie ma solo 350 furono arricchite dalle incisioni originali di Dalì firmate e numerate. La stampa del testo avvenne nel 1974 a Stuttgart, mentre la stampa delle tavole fu affidata lo stesso anno a Leblanc di Parigi. Dalì si dedicò spesso all'illustrazione di testi, dalla Sacra Bibbia alla Divina Commedia, e anche nel caso che qui si esamina non smentì la grande profondità e capacità introspettiva con cui era solito esprimere ciò che lo colpiva maggiormente di un testo che gli era chiesto di illustrare. Esemplare in perfetto stato conservativo, ampi margini in barbe. Il prezzo si riferisce ad ogni singolo oggetto.

        Schweizer Berg. Acryl auf Pavatex.

      1974 51 x 60 cm, Tadellos Aus der Sammlung Ernst Scheideggers. Links unten vom künsterl signiert und datiert. Kreienbühl. Jürg (geb.1932 in Basel. gest 1.11. 2007). Maler und Zeichner. Lithografie und Radierung. Lebt in Basel und Paris. Jürg Kreienbühl besucht die Schulen in Basel. verlässt allerdings das Gymnasium (mathematisch-naturwissenschaftliche Abteilung) vor der Matur. Nach einem Vorkurs für Grafik an der Allgemeinen Gewerbeschule 1950-51 absolviert er 1951-54 eine Lehre als Flachmaler. verzichtet jedoch auf die finanzielle Sicherheit eines Brotberufes und beginnt nach dem Lehrabschluss sofort als freier Künstler zu arbeiten. Mit einem Stipendium der Stadt Basel geht er 1956 nach Paris. wo er sich. nachdem auch das Geld eines weiteren Stipendiums aufgebraucht ist. während vieler Jahren unter schwierigsten Bedingungen durchschlägt. Menschen. die von der Gesellschaft ausgestossen worden sind oder von sich aus zu ihr auf Distanz bleiben. sind seine Nachbarn und werden zu Freunden oder seinen Modellen. Dank des Bistrowirtes Antoine Visconti. mit dem er einen Vertrag abschliesst. kann er seine ersten Bilder verkaufen. In den 60er Jahren folgen Ausstellungen auch in der Schweiz. der Durchbruch gelingt mit der Ausstellung 1973 im Aargauer Kunsthaus Aarau. Eine breitere Anerkennung findet sein Werk. das durch seinen prätentionslosen Realismus auffällt. durch die Bearbeitung von Themen. mit denen der Künstler auf Verfall und Untergang hinw Werkwürdigung: Im Werk von Jürg Kreienbühl verbinden sich Themen des Memento mori mit einem Zweifel an den Entscheidungen der Elite. Betroffen von der Unausweichlichkeit der Existenz. malt er zuerst Friedhofsbilder. dann die am Rande des Nichts stehenden Bewohner der Banlieue von Paris. Später wendet er sich aufgegebenen Unternehmungen vergangener Epochen und Generationen zu. Er baut dabei auf die Sprengkraft der sachlichen Schilderung und verzichtet auf Sensationshascherei oder Nobilitierung des Dargestellten. Selbst ein Blick auf Paris lässt hinter der Oberfläche einer trockenen und sachlichen Darstellung einen bohrenden Zweifel erahnen. Ebenso versteht Kreienbühl seinen Malstil als Protest gegen eine Avantgarde. die in seinen Augen dem Erfolg zuliebe ihre Ideale aufgegeben hat. Durch diese Haltung schlüpft er zunehmend in die Rolle eines Chronisten von Welten. die dem Untergang geweiht sind: Die Fabrik für Heiligenfiguren. in der Bilder des Ewigen zerbrochen am Boden liegen (1975). zum Verschrotten bestimmte Schiffe (1978) oder die Verdrängung ganzer Quartiere durch die Stadterweiterung von Paris werden zu Themen. die er vielfach in grossen Serien bearbeitet. Wie viele seiner Zeitgenossen wandte er sich einer figurativen Kunst zu. die alle Zweifel an der Darstellbarkeit der sichtbaren Welt radikal beiseite schiebt und ganz auf die Mittel des Realismus vertraut. Kunsthistorisches Interesse verdient sein Werk. weil er. von ganz anderen Voraussetzungen ausgehend. zu ähnlichen Ergebnissen kommt wie der in den 70er Jahren sich auch in Europa ausbreitende Fotorealismus. Parallelen ergeben sich auch mit dem ganz anders motivierten Blick von Künstlern wie beispielsweise Edward Kienholz. Die bedeutendste Wirkung erzielte er bisher durch sein Engagement für das naturhistorische Museum des Jardin des Plantes in Paris. Kreienbühl fand mit der grossen Serie über dieses Museum (1982-88) zum Thema der Naturgeschichte zurück. das ihn bereits als Gymnasiasten zu selbständigen wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten angeregt hatte. Nur eine tiefe innere Krise hatte den angehenden Wissenschaftler damals auf die Bahn der Malerei gewissen. ©1998 NZZ. Zurich. and SIK. Zurich / Lausanne.

        [Original Silver Gelatin Print, Signed]: FERN SPRING, DUSK ... [with:] IMAGES 1923 - 1974

      Boston: New York Graphic Society, 1974. Original gelatin silver print photograph (31 x 23 cm), printed by Adams from the negative. Dry mounted on archival board (42 x 34 cm). Fine. Print number 169 of 1000 numbered prints (500 numbered in Roman, 500 in Arabic), signed by Adams on the mount, and with certificate of limitation and technical details on verso. Published to accompany the deluxe, limited issue of IMAGES 1923 - 1974, of which a copy is present, also numbered '169' and signed on the colophon by Adams. The book is blemished, as at some point early on a previous owner excised the front free endsheet, quite likely to remove a presentation inscription, taking with it a significant area of the surface of the pastedown. It is otherwise very good and sound in dust jacket, with both enclosed in a somewhat faded and rubbed half calf oblong folio clamshell box, with the two short joints of the top lid at the fore-edge broken. In other words, a beautiful, virtually untouched copy of the signed print, with a flawed copy of the book tagging along.
