Fine/No Jacket - As Issued. 112pp, 48 color and 1 b&w illustration. Designed by Carl Laanes. With a biography. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. This innovatively designed catalogue was published in conjunction with the 1976 exhibition of William Eggleston's haunting photos of everyday life in the American South held at New York's Museum of Modern Art. Curated by John Szarkowski, it was the first one-man show extended by MoMA solely to a color photographer - confirming Eggleston's well-deserved place in the pantheon of post-war photographic artists, and passing the torch on to the medium's new generation of practitioners. It is a supremely beautiful document, and a piece of twentieth century photo history as well. A bright, fresh, most handsome copy of the first edition of this wonderful tome (cited on page 265 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 308-309 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", page 29 of "From Fair to Fine: 20th Century Photography Books That Matter", page 18 of "From Fair to Fine 3" and pages 234-235 of "The Book of 101 Books") in the gilt embossed, pebble-grained boards with the pastedown of the green tricycle on the front cover INSCRIBED "For ..., William Eggleston 1997" in black ink on the title page.

        Interview with the Vampire (Signed, Advanced Uncorrected Proof)

      New York: Knopf, 1976. Advance uncorrected proof.. Softcover.. A very good copy in printed wrappers.. The scarce uncorrected proof of the author's acclaimed first book, and the first appearance in print of any of Rice's vampire writing. SIGNED by the author on the title page. "Interview with the Vampire" was the first book in the Vampire Lestat series, and one of the unlikeliest success stories of that publishing season. Sales of the book, upon its release, would not have led anyone to imagine the long-term popularity and success of this series, in either hardcover or paperback. Rice's vampire novels have also been critically acclaimed and this, her first, is the scarcest of all the books. ~A very good copy overall, clean internally with a tight binding though notable spine lean, some soiling, creasing and light edge wear to wraps and very light staining to page (block) edges. ~An extremely scarce copy of a highly important debut novel, signed by the author.

        Interview with the Vampire

      New York: Knopf, 1976. First edition / First printing.. Hardcover.. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket.. The author's acclaimed first book, the first in the Vampire Lestat series, and one of the unlikeliest success stories of that publishing season. Modest hardcover sales of the book would not have led one to imagine the long-term popularity and success of Rice's later books in the Vampire Lestat series, nor did they predict the huge success this novel had in paperback, selling millions of copies. Even so, Rice's novels did not begin to approach such sales again until her next vampire novel, published after two mainstream historical novels. Rice's vampire novels are unprecedented bestsellers as well as being critically acclaimed, and even her erotic novels of sado-masochism have achieved a kind of mainstream success that defies prediction. This is the scarcest of the books, particularly in nice condition, as the gold foil dust jacket is notoriously prone to wear. ~Slight sag to text block; near fine in a near fine dust jacket with the red-letter outline faded on the spine.

      Ist. Poligr. dello Stato,, Roma, 1976 - Volume in folio imperiale (cm. 34x50) legato in pelle "naturale di capra", al piatto anteriore placca rotonda in bronzo di mm. 120 di diametro con riprodotto a bassorilievo un carro da combattimento trainato da due cavalli, auriga e guerriero con balteo, scudo elmo e lance, titolo impresso in oro al dorso a 5 nervi, tre carte bianche, titolo a due colori, occhiello, 147 pp., due bianche, occhiello, colophon con la giustificazione della tiratura (1871 esemplari) e della numerazione (esemplare nº0747), 5 cc. bianche finali. Il volume è accompagnato da una custodia a libro interamente in legno (cm. 40x52x5) contenente le tavole espressamente eseguite da De Chirico per questa tiratura, ognuna protetta da velina. Il magnifico insieme è racchiuso in robusta e bella custodia. Opera eccezionale per bellezza, con la magnifica traduzione eseguita da Quasimodo d'alcuni brani, i più a suo giudizio significativi, del capolavoro omerico accompagnata dalla altrettanto stupefacente interpretazione grafica del grande Maestro Giorgio De Chirico. Edizione prestigiosa, destinata a durare nel tempo ed a lasciare traccia nel panorama editoriale italiano del XX secolo. In condizioni perfette. Una menzione merita pure la stupenda placca bronzea del Veroi, plastica riproduzione di un Achille pronto a vendicare il morto Patroclo, nell'atto di lanciare il terribile grido di guerra che terrorizzava le schiere nemiche. Affascinante insieme.

Baldessari, John. 4 x 10 3/4 inches, (35) pp., photo-illustrated. Spiral bound printed wrappers. Fine. John Baldessari, born National City, California, 17 June 1931, is well known for using disparate elements of everyday life in his photographically generated works of art. In this, one of his earliest printed artist's books he juxtaposes three images in a linear format using two photographic portraits of a younger and older man facing each other with a photograph of a common household object between them. Each leaf repeats the same portraits but illustrated a different "murder weapon"; a kitchen knife, a wooden board, a magnifying glass, a book of matches, pushpins, etc. Baldessari lives and works in Santa Monica, California.
