        Façades

      New York: Penguin Books, 1978. First edition of New York street photographer Bill Cunningham's only book, a collaboration with the artist Editta Sherman, the "Duchess of Carnegie Hall." Cunningham and Sherman lived and worked side by side in the artist studios above Carnegie Hall, and shared a passion for vintage clothing. Between 1968 and 1976, Cunningham took thousands of photographs of Sherman in period costume, featuring Manhattan architecture of each era as the backdrop: an Empire-waisted muslin gown paired with City Hall (1802-1811), a Victorian hoop skirt with Cooper Union (1859), a pleated Fortuny gown with the Stock Exchange (1903), a modernistic domed hat with the Guggenheim Museum (1959). Cunningham scouted locations by bicycle, and Sherman arrived by bus or subway, so as not to wrinkle the clothes: "proceeding in their unusual manner, Bill and the Duchess have by-passed the strict decorum and posture of period photography and documentation for a more playful animation." Whimsical as the photographs are, Cunningham's keen attention to detail gives the collection real historical value; Façades dates from the same era as the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, created in response to the casual destruction of Penn Station. Cunningham's original photographs for Façades were first exhibited in 1977 at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and are now housed at the New-York Historical Society. A near-fine copy, inscribed by Editta Sherman at the age of 100. Large octavo, 128 pp., original metallic photographic wrappers printed in red and blue. Black-and-white photographs on every page. Inscribed on front free endpaper: "Sept 20 _ 12 / With Best Wishes / Editta Sherman." Lightest edgewear, small bump to head of spine.

        Il Piemonte antico e moderno delineato e descritto. Composizione e studio critico introduttivo di Cristiana Sertorio Lombardi

      L'Artistica - Società Reale Mutua di Assicurazioni, Savigliano 1978 - 2 voll. in-4° (306x225mm), pp. CXXXVII, 1351 complessive, legatura editoriale m. pelle e angoli con tit. oro al dorso. 4103 riproduzioni di disegni del Rovere f.t. Indice delle figure e delle località in fine del II vol. Custodia editoriale conservata. Stato di nuovo. Prima edizione. Pref. di Mario E. Viora, studio critico introduttico di Cristiana Sertorio Lombardi. Le numerosissime illustrazioni riproducono i disegni eseguiti dal Rovere tra il 1826 e il 1858, di notevole interesse storico-documentaristico per la loro dettagliata rappresentazione della topografia e del paesaggio pedemontano, ligure e savoiardo. La presente ristampa venne realizzata allorché l'alluvione che colpì Torino nell'ottobre 2000 causò la distruzione degli ultimi esemplari dell'unica edizione del Rovere, custoditi al piano rialzato del complesso Piero della Francesca. La copia autografa dell'opera si trova nella Biblioteca della Deputazione Subalpina di Storia Patria. Il Rovere, nato nel 1807 e morto nel 1860, fu diligente e apprezzato funzionario dell'Amministrazione della Real Casa e legò il suo nome a questa monumentale opera, iniziata probabilmente intorno al 1826, quando realizzò il suo primo disegno sulle sponde del Po a Torino. Negli anni a venire, approfittò di tutti i periodi di libertà dal suo impiego per scorrerie nella sua regione, aumentando a dismisura il numero di disegni realizzati, senza alcun piano determinato, almeno fino al 1851. In quell'anno mostrò il suo lavoro a Cesare Saluzzo di Monesiglio, che gli consigliò l'aggiunta di annotazioni storiche. Nel 1854 presentò il lavoro alla Deputazione Subalpina di Storia Patria, ottenendo una medaglia d'oro. Alla sua morte tutto il materiale passò, per sua esplicita volontà, alla Deputazione stessa.

        Lengthy Autographed Letter Signed to the Akron, Ohio Medical Society

      1978 - American gastroenterologist who was the first to discover and describe the disorder that bears his name: Crohn's Disease. 2 pages (front and back) on personal stationery, no place, August 31, 1978. In this letter, Crohn reminisces about how he got started in medicine as an intern for famed physician Emanuel Libman, assisting with autopsies, and his eventual discovery of Crohn's Disease of the Colon, in small part: ".My active scientific approach to medicine occurred as a fluke. Dr. Libman, who was head of the laboratory as well as medicine, wanted to pick an alert intern for the Lab. That is where I learned not only pathology.but bacteriology. Later, on the wards of Mount Sinai I persuaded Dr. Berg, the prominent surgeon, to operate upon patients with symptoms in the right lower quadrant. 'NO, he said, they are all tuberculosis.' But when I said the mass felt like a tumor he relented. Soon I had fourteen such cases and went to New Orleans for the meeting of the American Gastroenterologist Society and read my paper. I was correct - a few year later I presented my findings as a form of Colitis - but the AMA insisted, over my protests, in calling this 'Crohn's Disease.' Fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Snow Leopard

      New York: Viking Press, 1978. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good. Octavo (23 cm), pp. 338. Signed by author on half title page. Dark blue boards with silver spine titling, blue medallion. Pictorial jacket and endpapers (maps of the Tibetan Plateau and Inner Dolpo). Jacket and boards with very slight corner wear, jacket with a few small closed tears and foxing on underside. Reviewers critiqued this double National Book Award-winner (1979 and 1980), for the way Matthiessen folded natural history, personal tragedy and religion into a travel memoir (Roberson, I295-347), but the book proved to be a forerunner in the nature writing genre, combining memoir and the natural world, and a unparalleled classic of narrative nonfiction.

        Traumstadt. Zeitung für die Verteidigung der Wölfe gegen die Lämmer. Year 1, no. 0 (1978) through Year 3, no. 7 (1980) (all published)

      Altogether eight issues, 34, 38, 26, 43, 51, 43, 43, 43 pp., along with laid in posters and supplements, comprising a complete run of the poetically-minded anarchist underground magazine, each produced under the direction of a different editor, among them Andreas Hallen, Martin Soder, Arno Reinhard, Eckart Wähner and Stefan Saarbach, covering diverse topics from children's rights, music and film to censorship and state control, illustrated throughout with reproductions of photographs, drawings and collages. 4to. Illus. wrpps. Berlin (Landesverband der Selbstdenker und Einzelkämpfer) 1978-1980. Founded as a response to the "informational chaos" represented by the editorial strategy of the contemporaneous Berlin anarchist magazine INFO B.U.G., the group behind Traumstadt sought to emphasize collective solidarity and dream consciousness as a path toward political and social liberation, motives which are amply reflected in the magazine's surreal graphic design and cover art. As of October 2016, WorldCat locates only one holding of this serial in North America.

Scott Crossfield, (born Oct. 2, 1921, Berkeley, Calif.¿died April 19, 2006, Gordon county, Ga.), American test pilot who , became on Nov. 20, 1953, the first person to fly at Mach 2, twice the speed of sound, while flying for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, the forerunner of NASA. He was also instrumental in helping to design the first full-pressure flight suit, which was later adopted for the astronauts. During World War II, Crossfield was an instructor and trained as a fighter pilot, although he did not see action. As the chief test pilot for North American Aviation, he piloted the X-15, a rocket-powered craft that was designed to reach the fringes of space, and he narrowly escaped two brushes with death¿once when an engine blew up and the plane split in two during an emergency landing and again when the X-15 engine exploded during a ground test. Crossfield served as an executive for various airlines and as a consultant (1977¿93) to the House Committee on Science and Technology. He was killed when his plane crashed in the mountains of northern Georgia during a thunderstorm. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
