Housed in a near fine slipcase (condition details below), with Ansel Adams' signature on a page tipped in prior to title page and dated "Carmel, 1975". ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Ansel Easton Adams (1902-1984) was noted as a perfect balance of photographer and environmentalist. Most of us have seen Ansel Adams' photographs and have been awed by their beauty; he helped to elevate photography to an art comparable with painting and music, and equally capable of expressing emotion and beauty. He told his students, "It is easy to take a photograph, but it is harder to make a masterpiece in photography than in any other art medium". (Info from Wikipedia) ***ABOUT THE BOOK: The twelve-page Introduction by Wallace Stegner foretells the purpose of this book; to share with us Ansel Adams' vision of Nature ("Nature is for reverence") in all its grandeur and glory. In the preface, Ansel Adams himself discusses the difficulty of choosing 115 images from a working span of over 50 years and his hope that we, the viewers, would find new worlds open to us through his eyes. ***DESCRIPTION: Grey cloth boards with the initials "AA" in silver gilt, black cloth spine with silver gilt lettering, pictorial endpapers ("Clearing Storm", Sonoma County Hills, California c. 1960), frontispiece ("Winter Sunrise", Sierra Nevada, 1944) followed by the tipped-in page bearing Ansel Adams' signature and stating it is a special edition for Time-Life subscribers, Carmel, California, dated 1975, followed by title page, Ansel Adams' preface, Wallace Stegner's Foreword, followed by over 100 pages of his incomNear Fineparable photographs; most from Nature, but some fascinating portraits and scenes that include cities, buildings, and ruins. Oblong folio, pagination: (1-2), tipped in signature page, (3-5), 6-127, Colophon page. The unclipped pictorial dust jacket has a photograph of the Sierra Nevada in winter on the front and Mount Williamson on the back, the front flap contains a summary of the book, the back flap short bios and pictures of both Ansel Adams and Wallace Stegner. The heavy cardboard slipcase is covered in brown paper with the same "AA" initials on the front in black. ***CONDITION: Volume is fine with no evidence of usage; the text block is strong, the head and tail of the spine, and the corners, are perfectly straight with no rubbing, interior is clean and bright, totally free of prior owner markings. The unclipped dust jacket shows the original price of $65.00 "until 12/31/74" and $75.00 thereafter, it is near fine with only some shallow creases to the head of the spine. The slipcase is also near fine with a few shallow tears just beginning at scattered portions of the joints, a small tear to the case where the back meets the top, and some minor scuffing to the back. ***POSTAGE: Please note that this is an extremely large and quite heavy book; while we are happy to ship to both domestic and international addresses, additional postage will apply. If you would like to contact us in advance for postage costs, we are happy to provide an estimate prior to your placing an order. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

      New York: St. Martin's Press, [1974]. First edition. A fine copy in a nearly fine first issue dust jacket (priced $7.95) with a touch of rubbing to the front flap fold and upper right front corner and mild rubbing to spine ends. (16004). Octavo, boards. "Tough, slick narrative of an interstellar which lasts [over] 1000 years. To the soldier hero, it seems to last about ten years, thanks to the time-dilation effect of faster-than-light travel. Good, realistic, military SF which actually subverts many of the clichés of that category ... (he was a Vietnam veteran, which helped). Initially rejected by 18 publishers, it has since sold over a million copies." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), pp. 141-2. Haldeman's first SF novel. Winner of the 1975 Hugo award for best novel. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-479. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 360.

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 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 standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details.***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

      New York: William Morrow & Company, 1974. First edition of the author's groundbreaking work. Octavo, original half cloth.

I'm very strong on this region and will be thinking about your press. Robert M. Pirsig Apr 15, 1974." Fine in a fine dust jacket . "Enormously influential journey of self-discovery permeated by philosophical discussion, and startlingly original and disturbing imagery, based on an autobiographical account of a journey across the USA on a motorbike undertaken with his son in 1968; the shifts between narrative, analogy, and philosophical meditation have prompted several critics to see this work as a latter-day Moby-Dick" (Stringer, 532).

        Something I've Been Meaning to Tell You [1st Printing + Signed Plate Laid-in]

      McGraw-Hill Ryerson, Toronto, Toronto 1974 - 1st printing of the first Canadian hardcover edition of the author's third book, a story collection. Laid-in is a loose 4 x 3" bookplate SIGNED by Munro. The book is bound in kelly green cloth. It is square and tight with sharp corners and no markings by a previous owner. The heel of the book's spine has softened, and there is a short tear in the cloth, at that point. Minor tanning of the page edges. In the context of the first edition of this book, the jacket on this example is well-preserved. The creme-colored jacket shows typical tanning, which is uniform except on the spine, which has darkened. The artwork on the front cover and the author's photograph on the back panel are bright. There is a 1-inch closed tear in the top edge of the jacket with an associated crease. There are no losses. There is wear to the top edge of the jacket at the crown of the spine and the hinges. The bottom edge of the jacket shows less wear, at the heel of the spine and the back hinge. The jacket is not priced, as issued. The signed bookplate, which is not affixed to a page, is made with an adhesive on the reverse side which is activated with moisture. Canada's most highly-decorated writer, Munro was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013 and cited as "a master of the contemporary short story." She won the Man Booker International Prize in 2009. She has won Canada's Giller Prize twice and the Governor General's Literary Award for Fiction three times: Dance of the Happy Shades (1968), Who Do You Think You Are? (1978) and The Progress of Love (1986). Since the 1960s, her stories have been published regularly in The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly and The Paris Review. Note to Collectors: never an avid signer, when Munro completed the publicity tour for The Love of A Good Woman in 1998, she announced that she would no longer make public appearances to autograph books. Now age 85, she has retired from writing. Also available from this bookseller is a Canadian hardcover first of Runaway signed by Munro on the title page and a Canadian first of her 2nd book, and only novel, Lives of Girls & Women with a signed plate laid-in. Canadian orders will be charged GST. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      P., Editions Galilée, coll. Digraphe dirigée par Jean Ristat, 27 septembre 1974. - 25 x 25 cm, 292 p. Broché, couv. impr. Très bel exemplaire. Edition originale, exemplaire du premier tirage, de cette écriture expérimentale en deux colonnes, l'une pour commenter Hegel, l'autre pour lire Jean Genet.- « D’abord : deux colonnes. Tronquées, par le haut et par le bas, taillées aussi dans leur flanc : incises, tatouages, incrustations. Une première lecture peut faire comme si deux textes dressés, l’un contre l’autre ou l’un sans l’autre, entre eux ne communiquaient pas. Et d’une certaine façon délibérée, cela reste vrai, quant au prétexte, à l’objet, à la langue, au style, au rythme, à la loi. Une dialectique d’un côté, une galactique de l’autre, hétérogènes et cependant indiscernables dans leurs effets, parfois jusqu’à l’hallucination. Entre les deux, le battant d’un autre texte, on dirait d’une autre "logique" : aux surnoms d’obséquence, de penêtre, de stricture, de serrure, d’anthérection, de mors, etc. Pour qui tient à la signature, au corpus et au propre, déclarons que, mettant en jeu, en pièces plutôt, mon nom, mon corps et mon seing, j’élabore d’un même coup, en toutes lettres, ceux du dénommé Hegel dans une colonne, ceux du dénommé Genet dans l’autre. On verra pourquoi, chance et nécessité, ces deux-là. La chose, donc, s’élève, se détaille et détache selon deux tours, et l’accélération incessante d’un tour-à-tour. Dans leur double solitude, les colosses échangent une infinité de clins, par exemple d’œil, se doublent à l’envi, se pénètrent, collent et décollent, passant l’un dans l’autre, entre l’un et l’autre. Chaque colonne figure ici un colosse (colossos), nom donné au double du mort, au substitut de son érection. Plus qu’un, avant tout. L’écriture colossale déjoue tout autrement les calculs du deuil. Elle surprend et dérésonne l’économie de la mort dans tous ses retentissements. Glas en décomposition, (son ou sa) double bande, bande contre bande, c’est d’abord l’analyse du mot glas dans les virtualités retorses et retranchées de son "sens" (portées, volées de toutes les cloches, la sépulture, la pompe funèbre, le legs, le testament, le contrat, la signature, le nom propre, le prénom, le surnom, la classification et la lutte des classes, le travail du deuil dans les rapports de production, le fétichisme, le travestissement, la toilette du mort, l’incorporation, l’introjection du cadavre, l’idéalisation, la sublimation, la relève, le rejet, le reste, etc.) et de son « signifiant » (vol et déportation de toutes les formes sonores et graphiques, musicales et rythmiques, chorégraphie de Glas dans ses lettres et fécondations polyglottiques). Mais cette opposition (Sé / Sa), comme toutes les oppositions du reste, la sexuelle en particulier, par chance régulière se compromet, chaque terme en deux divisé s’agglutinant à l’autre. Un effet de gl (colle, glu, crachat, sperme, chrême, onguent, etc.) forme le conglomérat sans identité de ce cérémonial. Il rejoue la mimesis et l’arbitraire de la signature dans un accouplement déchaîné (toc / seing / lait), ivre comme un sonneur à sa corde pendu. Que reste-t-il du savoir absolu ? de l’histoire, de la philosophie, de l’économie politique, de la psychanalyse, de la sémiotique, de la linguistique, de la poétique ? du travail, de la langue, de la sexualité, de la famille, de la religion, de l’État, etc. ? Que reste-t-il, à détailler, du reste ? Pourquoi ces questions en forme de colosses et de fleurs phalliques ? Pourquoi exulter dans la thanatopraxie ? De quoi jouir à célébrer, moi, ici, maintenant, à telle heure, le baptême ou la circoncision, le mariage ou la mort, du père et de la mère, celui de Hegel, celle de Genet ? Reste à savoir – ce qu’on n’a pu penser : le détaillé d’un coup. » (J. Derrida). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Blaeksprutten [The Cuttlefish]: (27 volumes, 1889-1974)

      (Ernst Bojesen / Gyldendalske Boghandel), Kjobenhavn [Denmark] 1974 - A collection of 27 volumes of this Danish satirical magazine, famous for its color lithographic covers and cartoons. Oblong quartos. Text in Danish. The set includes six scarce early issues in contemporary marbled paper-covered boards with the original wrappers bound in (1889, 1896, 1898, 1902, 1903, and 1912); and 21 loose issues in wrappers (1914-17, 1919-20, 1922-34, 1947 and 1974). Rubbing, scattered nicks and short tears to the edges of the marbled boards and wrap edges, the front wrap of the 1889 issue is detached, the 1915 and 1919 issues lack both wraps, else about very good overall. From the library of Ole Risom, author of *I Am a Bunny*, and an important publisher of children's books at Golden Books Western Press and Random House. Most issues are inscribed to either Ole or his brother Jens Risom from their grandfather. The set also includes one volume (1896) that belonged to Axel Henriques, one of Blaeksprutten's leading writers, with his name stamped in gilt on the front board.The 25 volumes from 1889 through 1934 feature many classic color covers and cartoons by Axel Thiess, Alfred Schmidt, Hans Bendix, Herluf Jensenius, and Poul Fischer, with most of the text written by Axel Henriques and Anton Melbye. All five artists were renowned for their delightfully fresh and provocative cartoons (showing what life was really like), exhibiting a striking satiric wit and style very much influenced by the great lithographs of Honore Daumier. Among the many highlights are Axel Thiess's signature Cuttlefish cover from 1889 and Dancing Polar Bears cover of 1896, and Hans Bendix's "Hjem fra Skole" [Home from School] from 1928 (showing the corrupting effects of Josephine Baker's immorality on respectable Danish society). Ole Risom was born in Copenhagen and fled Nazi-occupied Denmark for the United States in 1940. After the war he soon became influential in launching the careers of many young artists, and developed a close working relationship with Richard Scarry. Laid-in is a TLS from Risom in Danish (on Random House stationary, dated August 17, 1993). A compelling collection of many early loose issues in unique marbled boards and wrappers, with a nice association. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
