        WHEN I WAS TWO [Book Number 68]

      Rochester, NY: Visual Studies Workshop Press, 1977. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/near fine. Oblong 4to. Original red cloth in dust-jacket. Offset printed. Easily near fine or better overall with just touches of wear at the extremities. Else bright, clean, and sharp overall. INSCRIBED by Smith in year of publication to title page. From an edition of 300 unnumbered copies. [52]pp. Smith's first book intended for wider circulation. Though numbered 68 in his oeuvre, until WHEN I WAS TWO Smith had created no edi- tions larger than 30 - with the vast majority being one-of-a-kind, and all circulated primarily if not exclusively among intimates. (Book #65 was printed in an edition of 70, but according to Smith "I gave a few copies away. The remainder are still in our upstairs library" - 200 BOOKS 112.) Therefore, in many ways what essen- tially marks the start of Smith's public career as a book artist and book arts educator. Indeed, the Visual Studies Workshop was instrumental in the popularization of the artist's book in the 1970s. In this particular work, Smith's inventive photographic and darkroom techniques represent "levels of reality [...] When I Was Two utilizes pictures and text about events I remember from when I was two years old until an adult. It was my first public written expression of personal events“ (200 BOOKS 116-17). A landmark book in a landmark career, about which Betty Bright has written: "Smith has done more than any American book artist to analyze, extend, relocate, and communicate the book's expressive range" (NO LONGER INNOCENT 219). [Smith, 200 BOOKS, 113-17].

        Fractals: Form, Chance, and Dimension.

      W. H. Freeman, San Francisco 1977 - First edition of the mathematician's groundbreaking work. Quarto. Light wear, else near fine in a near fine dust jacket that shows a closed tear to the crown of the spine. Inscribed by the author. An important work, rare signed and inscribed. In 1975, Benoit Mandelbrot coined the term fractal to describe these structures and first published his ideas in 1975, and later translated, Fractals: Form, Chance and Dimension. According to mathematics scientist Stephen Wolfram, the book was a "breakthrough" for Mandelbrot, who until then would typically "apply fairly straightforward mathematics . to areas that had barely seen the light of serious mathematics before." Wolfram adds that as a result of this new research, he was no longer a "wandering scientist", and later called him "the father of fractals": Until Mandelbrot, most mathematicians believed the irregular shapes found in nature were too fragmented or amorphous to be described mathematically. However in the 1960s and 1970s, Mandelbrot developed his concept of fractal geometry, which helped bring order to complex problems in physics, biology, and even financial markets.
