        Women Are Beautiful

      New York: Light Gallery / Farrar, Straus & Giroux, (1975). Bottom corners bumped, else near fine in a near fine jacket, lightly and evenly soiled. While signed copies of this title appear intermittently, this is the first legitimate association copy I have seen.. First Edition. Small oblong quarto. The hardcover issue. Essay by Helen Gary Bishop. A fine association copy, SIGNED by Winogrand and briefly INSCRIBED to Arnold and Augusta Newman. Winogrand's best and most sought after book, with many of his iconic images of the seventies. Interestingly, both Roth and Parr omitted this title in favor of Winogrand's first book, The Animals. (Open Book 306-307, Auer 588).

        Women Are Beautiful

      New York: Light Gallery Editions, 1975. First Edition. Softcover.. Near Fine. Oblong 8vo, 96pp. Printed wraps as issued. 84 Black & White plates. Minor wear to corners, else near fine. More images available on request. Scarce in such a good condition. Compiled by Szarkowski. 85 photographic plates depicting women with Winogrand's characteristic spontaneity and "inspired amateurism." "Winogrand was an innovator and one of the most dazzlingly reckless members of what John Szarkowski called photography's 'new generation of primitives...' his style appeared to be no style--effortless, loose, and as uncalculated as a snapshot" (Roth, The Book of 101 books: Seminal Photographs Of The 20th Century). Beautiful book that's part street style and part photodocumentary, shot between the early sixties and 1975. Highly recommended.

        The Seen (First Edition)

      San Francisco: Pasteurize Press / Zephyrus Image, 1975. First Edition. First Edition. An offprint of Brakhage's remarks following a screening of his film, "The Text of Light," at the San Francisco Art Institute, Nov 18, 1974. & & A variant of the first edition described in the Zephyrus Image bibliography by Alastair Johnston, this copy without the inner printed Mylar wrapper and printed envelope. Probably the rarest Brakhage item extant, and an extraordinary example, given nature of the fragile wrapper. Not in OCLC. & & Johnston's entry for this title notes "After the film screened at Canyon Cinematheque in 1975, Holbrook Teter of Zephyrus Image decided to publish a transcript of Brakhage's accompanying talk. Teter said: 'Stan Brakhage showed a movie of light refracted in a glass ashtray. You couldn't tell it was an ashtray. The whole movie was just the shifting light in the ashtray for a very lengthy time. After he showed the movie he talked about his own life and development as an artist and what he had to say was so turned on, so accurate and beautiful. Somebody had taped it so we transcribed it and put out the book.'" & & "Teter originally proposed the title "Seeing is Believing" which Brakhage rejected as having religious connotations and 'then anyway my concern is to pry words such as 'seeing' FREE from those traditional associations of it which would limit a person.'"& & "Upon reviewing the tape to proof-read his first galley, Teter found that the Cinematheque transcriber had edited rather wildly, leaving out chunks and had even interpolated parts from another Brakhage speech at the University of California Berkeley's Pacific Film Archive. Teter re-transcribed the speech, and "The Seen" first appeared in print in late 1975." & & Brakhage was thrilled, and wrote in a letter to Teter, "Bless you for this beauty," and said that of all the books that had been inspired from his films, that Teter's was "easily the most beautiful of all." The Criterion Collection released a collection of 26 key works by Brakhage, titled "By Brakhage," in 2003, allowing frame-by-frame digital examination of his work for the first time. In 2010, Criterion released a second volume, curated by his wife, with an additional 30 films.& & Fine in saddle-stitched, reflective wrappers.

        Nihon No Mayakuka / Narcotic Damage in Japan

      Nagoya: Nisshin-sha, 1975. A few small label remnants as is typical with Japanese books; a near fine copy in blue boards as issued in the publisher's plain card slipcase (few tape shadows, but very little wear).. First Edition. Thick quarto. Limited to 500 copies. The third and last book by Kazuo Kenmochi documenting drug use in Japan. This book includes images from his first two books (Narcotic Photographic Document and Narcotic '61-'72) as well as new images not found in either of the earlier works. The book has a long section of text, also by Kenmochi, and must rank as one of the most comprehensive books on drug addiction ever published. Amidst the reportage (there are many images of drug seizures, photographed in a style not unlike Boltanski or Sol Lewitt), there are incredible pictures of addicts in varying states of disarray.

        River-Crossing Pa Ndau

      The Hmong people of Laos are a tribal people in the highlands of Southeast Asia. They were recruited by the C.I.A. to fight against the communist Vietnamese and Pathet Lao in the 1960s, and they suffered the highest casualty rate of any group in the war. After the victories of the North Vietnamese and the Pathet Lao in 1975, the communist governments retaliated against the "traitors." Many Hmong were killed and others fled across the Mekong River into Thailand, seeking freedom, or at least refuge. For a period of time, the largest population of Hmong in the world, outside of Laos, existed in a Thailand refugee camp. A number resettled in the West, including tens of thousands in the U.S. Pa ndau is a traditional Hmong textile folk art -- "pa" is Hmong for flower, "ndau" for cloth. Decorated cloths can be as small as postage stamps or as large as quilts and can incorporate various kinds of stitcheries, as well a various images or patterns. The central image of a pa ndau generally tells a story. One thematic development in traditional Hmong pa ndau since the end of the Vietnam war was the "river-crossing" pa ndau, representing the flight from Laos across the Mekong River and into Thailand. Approximately 34" x 34", this embroidered pa ndau shows a traditional scene of village life in the highlands of Laos, with planting, cooking, and other traditional activities taking place, followed by -- as one approaches the foreground -- the arrival of armed Pathet Lao soldiers herding villagers at gunpoint. Still closer to the foreground, a number of villagers have escaped into the river, some on rafts, some in boats, some floating singly. On the other side of the river, they are greeted by Thai troops, and escorted to safety in Thai vehicles. The unnamed artist who created this pa ndau escaped from a Pathet Lao prison camp with her children, hiding out in the forest for several weeks until she was eventually recaptured; her captors knocked her teeth out with rifle butts after her recapture. She eventually escaped again and made it across the river, finally emigrating to the U.S. River-crossing pa ndau -- a modern expression of a traditional Hmong art-are extremely scarce, and this is a particularly dramatic example. Fine. . First Edition.

        [Photographie originale signée] Quai de Javel, 1932. [Dédicace autographe de Cartier-Bresson à Paola et Jean-Michel Folon]

      1975. Photo. Illus. by Henri Cartier-Bresson. Très bon. Aucune reliure. Dédicacé par l'auteur. 30,5 x 40,5 cm (feuille), 24,5 x 36 cm (image). Photo de 1932, tirage gélatino-argentique postérieur d'après contretype sur papier semi-mat à grain perlé circa 1975. Amicale dédicace autographe signée de Henri Cartier-Bresson à l'illustrateur Jean-Michel Folon et à son épouse, la galeriste Paola Folon-Ghiringhelli. A noter que, comme le précise le photographe dans sa dédicace, il s'agit d'un contretype, le négatif ayant été perdu pendant la deuxième guerre mondiale. Tous les tirages de ce cliché célèbre faits après guerre sont faits d'après un contretype, même si Cartier-Bresson ne le précise pas toujours. Ce tirage fut probablement donné à Folon en remerciement d'une tribune publiée par ce dernier dans "Le Monde" en 1974 pour prendre sa défense suite à la polémique suscitée par Cartier-Bresson dans une interview au même journal, où il affirmait : "la photo ne veut rien dire, elle ne dit rien, elle ne prouve rien". Cette photographie est reproduite dans la plupart des livres consacrés au photographe, parmi lesquels GALASSI "Henri Cartier-Bresson : premières images" (p. 63), BNF "De qui s'agit-il" (n° 28), DELPIRE "Henri Cartier-Bresson photographe" (n° 66), MONTIER "L'Art sans art d'Henri Cartier-Bresson" (n° 186) et CARTIER-BRESSON & MONTIER "Revoir Henri Cartier-Bresson" (nn° 50-51 : tirage d'avant-guerre annoté par le photographe).

        “On the Problem of Hidden Variables in Quantum Mechanics” in Reviews of Modern Physics, 38, p. 447, 1966

      One of two very famous papers by John Bell on hidden variables in quantum theory and a first edition of the paper in which he finally proves that hidden variables can in fact describe quantum events if non-locality is included. John Bell was the originator of Bell’s Theorem, one of the most important theorems in quantum physics. Bell’s Theorem draws a line in the sand between the world we know intuitively and that of quantum mechanics. Elegant and brief yet also called “the most profound in science,” the theorem states simply that “no physical theory of local hidden variables can ever reproduce all of the predictions of quantum mechanics” (Stapp, 1975). In 1932, John von Neumann wrote a paper disproving de Broglie’s argument that there is a ‘hidden variable’ that determines the precise position of the photon. Von Neumann was such a brilliant mathematician that no one bothered to check his maths; when Bell did in this 1966 paper, he showed that von Neumann had been wrong and there could be hidden variables after all, but only if particles could communicate faster than light (called ‘non-locality’). CONDITION & EDITION: 4to. Full volume bound in three quarter red cloth over marbled paper boards; maroon morocco spine labels. The binding is pristine save for slight scuffing to the spine labels. The interior is in near fine condition.

        Original Limited Edition Etchings, Signed 5x

      Zurich: Coron-Verlag, 1975. First edition. Fine. [1973, 1974]. A Fine set of four original etchings by Gunter Grass, each SIGNED BY GUNTER GRASS, housed in a Near Fine marbled-gray stiff cardboard folio also SIGNED BY GUNTER GRASS on the title label, published in a Limited Edition of 70 copies, of which this is copy 69, together with the original custom cardboard mailing box. Each of the four etchings has been signed, dated, and numbered in charcoal by Gunter Grass, who also signed and numbered the title pastedown residing on the folio's front cover in blue ink. (One of the etchings is number 59 from a limitation of only 60.) Each Etching is loosely inserted into the folio and is there protected by a loosely inserted tissue guard (each in very good condition). The Etchings themselves are in excellent condition and are printed on high-linen handmade paper suitable for framing. The Folio measures approximately 30" X 21" and each etching is printed on a sheet measuring 19-3/4” X 25-1/2”. Each Etching is in Fine condition and is untitled. (Were we to give titles to the etchings, the titles would be: "Partially Eaten Peaches" (59/60, 1973), A Study of Three Fish (79/80, 1973), A Study of the Scorpion (79/80, 1973), and "Rescue from a Fish" (79/80, 1974). The Etching sheets are much larger in size that usually seen and the issues Limitation is much smaller than usually is seen. Gunter Grass won the 1999 Nobel Prize in Literature in recognition of his "frolicsome black fables [which] portray the forgotten face of history". The original mailing carton shows that the folio was sent to 25 Marktgasse Bern, Switzerland to the family of Alfred Scherz & Co., Bern, Switzerland, publishing house and rare booksellers (which ultimately sold all its assets to the Holtzbrinck Publishing Group in 1998). An important publishing house, Scherz played a key role in introducing, in German translation, the works of Winston Churchill, Eisenhower, George Patton, Field Marshall Montgomery, President Harry Truman, Pearl Buck, Louis Bromfield, A.J. Cronin, and Thomas Wolfe. A wonderful set of UNUSUALLY LARGE ETCHINGS ISSUED IN AN UNUSUALLY SMALL LIMITATION, each SIGNED BY THE NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING GUNTER GRASS, issued in a Folio ALSO SIGNED BY GUNTER GRASS. RARE.

        Salem&#39;s Lot

      New York: Doubleday. NF/F. 1975. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 0385007515 . Signed by author. 1st edition, 1st printing, Doubleday, 1975. This 1st printing (stated on copyright page) book&#39;s dustjacket had 3 issues: the 1st rumored to be only 25 copies priced at $8.95, all kept in-house by Doubleday and never published with the book. This is the 2nd issue dustjacket - very scarce because of the Father Cody mistake on the front flap (later corrected in the 3rd issue to Father Callahan) that was price clipped by Doubleday and repriced at $7.95 printed beside the publisher clip. The book has the required (to be a real 1st printing) Q37 code at the lower end of the gutter of the last text page. The book is Near Fine+. Straight, clean, tight, no binding spots or soiling, with just slight softening to the cloth at spine ends and a few very small, very faint tanned spots to outer page edges near the back of the text block, and on the top of the front free end page the previous owner&#39;s name plus in different writing her place and date of birth and place and date of death. The book is SIGNED by Stephen King on the title page, right below his publisher printed name - just his name with no inscription. A lovely example of King&#39;s 2nd book, and a Fine example of the fragile dustjacket (usually found chipped and tattered). Even the red part of the lettering on the spine isn&#39;t faded as you usually find it. Only things keeping it from being As New is a tiny trace of white showing through the black at the front flap fold line, and a couple of very tiny professional edge repairs. A true collector&#39;s copy. Made into a TV series, which is what really got King&#39;s career started. ; 8-7/16" x 5-3/4"; 439 pages; Signed by Author .

        Support the MPLA in Angola Original Poster - San Francisco Poster Brigade, People&#39;s Movement for the Liberation of Angola

      San Francisco: Wilfred Owen Brigade, 1975. Original Print. Very Good +. Wilfred Owen Brigade; Rachael Romero. Support the MPLA in Angola Original Poster. San Francisco: Wilfred Owen Brigade, 1975. Linocut, black ink on heavy white paper, image measures approx. 13 by 22 1/2-inches, the paper measures 17 1/2 by 23-inches, light red stamp of the &#147;Wilfred Owen Brigade&#148; in the lower right margin. Pin holes at each corner of the print and one at center top. Creases on upper right corner and an old repaired tear and tiny nick on left edge (none affect image). A remarkably well-preserved copy of this truly scarce graphic. This block-print was created by Rachael Romero in 1975, the same year she co-founded the San Francisco Poster Brigade. The SFPG was originally called the Wilfred Owen Brigade after the poet who was killed in action during the First World War, but, as Romero says, &#147;no-one knew who Wilfred Owen was so soon changed the name to San Francisco Poster Brigade.&#148; The SFPB existed from 1975 &#150; 1982, though Romero remains an active artist engaged in social issues. The MPLA &#150; the leftist People&#39;s Movement for the Liberation of Angola &#150; Labour Party &#150; has ruled Angola since the country&#146;s independence from Portugal in 1975. During 1975, when this posted was created, the United States was heavily involved in supporting the MPLA&#146;s opposition during the Angolan Civil War, which lasted until 2002.

        Humboldt&#39;s Gift [Signed Rare Unrevised Proofs]

      New York: The Viking Press, 1975. First edition [Rare Unrevised Proofs]. Wrappers. Fine. A Near Fine to Fine Rare copy of the Unrevised Proofs for Humboldt&#39;s Gift, SIGNED BY SAUL BELLOW on the title page, issued prior to the much more common Advance Reading Copy for this work; Saul Bellow&#39;s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, an exploration of mental instability and how it relates to genius. The book&#39;s central character, Charlie Citrine, is based on Delmore Schwartz, the American Poet and Short Story writer who, in 1959, became the youngest-ever Bollingen Prize winner and who, in his later life suffered from Alcoholism and mental illness. One of the 20th Century&#39;s most important authors, Saul Bellow was a three-time winner of the National Book Award for Fiction (The Adventures of Augie March, Herzog, and Mr. Sammler&#39;s Planet), and, as noted above, won the Pulitzer Prize for Humboldt&#39;s Gift. The novel also played a part in Bellow&#39;s winning the 1976 Nobel Prize in Literature "for the human understanding and subtle analysis of contemporary culture that are combined in his work". This is a Near Fine to Fine copy of the Rare Unrevised Proofs for this novel (issued prior to, and in numbers more limited than, the much more common Advance Reading Copy), showing a bit of shelf soiling to the bottom of the closed page block&#39;s ends and some quite minor sunning to the spine. Copies of the Unrevised Proof&#39;s are quite scarce, and signed copies are absolute hen&#39;s teeth. A Near Fine to Fine copy of the RARE UNREVISED PROOFS for one of Saul Bellow&#39;s most important works, both WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE and A MEANINGFUL CONTRIBUTOR TO BELLOW&#39;S WINNING THE NOBEL PRIZE, SIGNED BY SAUL BELLOW.

        Original watercolor artwork for ABA 75 Convention

      c. 1975. Watercolor on paper. Image area measures approximately 8 by 11 1/2 inches. Matted and framed. This illustration was used on the cover of the May 19th, 1975 edition of Publisher&#39;s Weekly, which featured an article on the 1975 American Booksellers Association Convention. The scene shows a typical Gorey character with enormous golden wings proclaiming "ABA 75" upon them in red. The mustachioed man, dressed in slacks, a tweed sportcoat, yellow sweater and green bow-tie, hovers bat-like over a small crowd of characters wielding books, each of whom has a speech-bubble pitch above them. The faded burlesque dancer in a diaphanous flapper-style dress, feather headdress, and festooned with beads holds up her "Follies of the Follies" and explains that "I still have all my costumes to wear to book-and-author luncheons." Next to her, a small boy pitches his "exposé of group activities in an Eastchester kindergarten" entitled "Plasticine & Clothes Pins." A barefoot, bearded beach-bum in a poncho, an apron-wearing aspiring cookbook author, and a man in a plaid 3-piece leisure suit round out this assembly. Some of the details here suggest that Gorey, who was no stranger to book-related events such as this, may have attended this convention. Writing in the June 16th, 1975 issue of the New Yorker, Lillian Ross observed that "All over the convention, the word used for people whose names appeared on the covers of books was &#39;author&#39; (never &#39;writer&#39;)." Further on, she noted the presence of "two dozen publishers who were beating the drum for cookbooks," and she likened the experience of walking the aisles to "walking an old Coney Island path between sideshow hawkers." Gorey adhered a small paste-over correction to the leg of one of the characters, revealing insight into the artist&#39;s process. A fine, colorful example of Gorey&#39;s commercial work that is especially appealing for its book-oriented content.

        Dog Soldiers [Inscribed Association Copy of Scarce British Edition]

      London: Secker & Warburg. (1975). The first British edition of his second novel, winner of the National Book Award and one of the best novels to link the impact of the Vietnam war on American society in the Sixties to the dark side of that era -- the official corruption and the underside of the drug experiences of a generation. An unaccountably scarce edition. Reportedly 2500 copies were printed but it turns up very seldom, far less often than the British A Hall of Mirrors, which is reported to have had a first printing of only 1000 copies. Printed in the U.S. and with a similar binding to the U.S. edition, but with a completely different dust jacket design. This copy is inscribed by the author to his bibliographer, Ken Lopez, "with best wishes." Faint marks on foredges and endpages; near fine in a near fine dust jacket with some of the usual fading to the spine lettering. We&#39;ve carried this edition only a handful of times over the years. Without question, the scarcest of Stone&#39;s trade editions. . First Edition. Hardcover.
