      (New Jersey: Carolingian Press, 1975). Square octavo. (86)ff. of various papers, most being frenchfold. From an edition of 25 copies signed by Burgess, this is copy number one. Burgess' concrete poetry is printed letterpress from zinc plates, which were produced from a typewritten text. This unusual, striking book was written by Burgess as a result of her study of Eastern philosophy and religion and is her only published book. It is beautifully conceived, using more than forty varieties of Japanese papers, including leaf papers with clover and ferns. The text is a series of meditations delicately integrated with the typography and papers to lead to a peaceful calm for the reader - a motionless "sill." The book is arranged on four different levels: by color, by country, by thought, and by number. Each country is represented by a colored sheet and Japanese lace papers. The blue section is India, followed by the yellow of China, the red of Tibet, and finally, the green of Japan. A moving and impressive book by an artist who works primarily as a sculptor. Bound oriental-style with gold threads and housed in a black folding box, each side of which is silk-lined in a different primary color. On the cover is a gold painted circle, the symbol of eternal light. The box is clasped with mother-of-pearl. A fine copy. 12-page prospectus laid in.

        Original manuscript poems, prepared for a reading at the Cheltenham Literary Festival

      [c.1975]. 8 pages foolscap, staple to one corner. Housed in a black cloth chemise. Pin holes to second corner throughout, folded once but in very good shape.

On the versos of five of these leaves are original holograph poems by Hughes each designated "Commentary for Alan" [Hancock the organiser of the festival]. These commentaries are quintessential Hughes, classic epigrammatic turns at once clear and then mystical. They include a final thought, "The Moon that keeps / Man's guilt awake / Lights the Law / Owl cannot break". None of these have been published.

      Seattle: Mill Mountain Press, 1975. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. 8vo. Plain printed wraps. Near fine. Drawings by Ginny Crouch. Scarce collection from this cult poet, whose significance and importance have only grown since his 1978 suicide. Shade was the fourth book of Stanford's to be published by Mill Mountain Press. "Second edition" stated, though in fact this is the first, the previous "1973" edition noted with Stanford's other titles in this book never having actually been published. Almost certainly a bit of bibliographic mischief perpetrated by the poet. Additionally, copyright page notes "Limited Edition," though no limitation stated. But in our experience probably the scarcest of the seven titles published during his lifetime. Though we are aware of sales of each of his other books, we know of none for this title. OCLC shows just four holdings. Rare work from arguably the most original poetic voice to emerge from the 1970's.

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). Légères rousseurs dans les marges..

        “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.
