Signed by author upon front free endpaper beneath his chilling hand-written inscription "For Leo with warmest regards from his fellow liquidator." Kermit Roosevelt was given the go-ahead to mastermind the overthrow of democratically elected Iranian President Mossadegh after the latter nationalized the Iranian oil industry in 1951. "Roosevelt explains in minute-by-minute detail how he performed his mission... He tells with whom he worked, how he worked, and how the plan was almost aborted." - from dust jacket. "Kermit Roosevelt admitted on NPR radio that in 1953 the CIA and British intelligence carried out a wave of bombings and shootings in Iran. He then went on to brag about how they subsequently blamed the bombings on Iran's President, Mossadegh." - from an online reference. An important book, particularly given America's current preoccupation with Iran, again. Average wear to unmarked book. Binding sound. Various substantial defects to dust jacket which is now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. A significant piece of American, and Iranian, history.

        Vom Eindruck zum Ausdruck 1/4 Jahrhundert Kippenberger

      Berlin / Paris: Verlag Pikasso's Erben, (1979). Just about fine in wrappers; stickers in uniformly fine condition, with the self-adhesive paper in tact.. First Edition. Octavo. Limited edition of 300 copies. Artists' book by Martin Kippenberger, his second publication. Consists of blank pages, accompanied by 60 4 X 2 3/4 inch stickers with black-and-white reproductions of photographs, drawings, and paintings. In an act that emphasizes the authorial choice inherent in the arrangement of images, Kippenberger invites the reader to adhere the stickers to the pages and create a unique narrative. While the title page states that all copies were signed and numbered, only a portion of the limited edition feature both a signature and a number, and even fewer have Kippenberger's hand-fixed arrangement of stickers on the internal pages.

        Encyclopédie, ou dictionnaire universel raisonné des connoissances humaines. Yverdon, Fortuné-Barthélemy de Félice, 1770-1780. 58 volumes (42 text, 6 supplement and 10 plates volumes). 4to. With 1264 engraved plates (numbered "1410" by the publisher). Contemporary uniform sprinkled tanned sheepskin, spine with gold fillets.

      Darnton, The business of Enlightenment (1979), pp. 19-21; Delon, Encyclopedia of the Enlightenment (2001), pp. 442-443. First and only early edition of the complete 58-volume Yverdon Encyclopédie, Protestant Switzerland's answer to Diderot's irreligious Encyclopédie, edited and published by Fortuné-Barthélemy Félice (1723-1789). Félice choose not to just reissue Diderot's monumental encyclopaedia, but to improve it by purging Diderot's subversive input, making numerous improvements and adding new entries with the help of Leonhard Euler, Charles François Dupuis, Jérôme Lalande, Albrecht von Haller and others. With these alterations it got a much broader European scope than Diderot's Franco-centric encyclopaedia. Old manuscript shelf marks on the spines of the bindings. The leather of the binding has browned the edges of the endpapers. With only an occasional waterstain in a couple of volumes, otherwise in very good condition and with the plates in very crisp impressions. A few of the spine-labels slightly faded and some occasional minor rubbing to the bindings. A remarkable monument to scholarship, partly based on Diderot and partly new.

        Fushi Kaden (Signed Limited Edition)

      Tokyo: Akio Nagasawas, 2012. Limited Edition . Hardcover. Fine. This is a signed limited edition of the highly regarded photobook Fushi Kaden published by Akio Nagasawas, Tokyo in 2012 with a limitation of 500 this being 218. This is Issei Suda\'s first and most famous photobook. Ryuichi Kaneko and Ivan Vartanian in their reference work on Japanese Photobooks, Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 70s provide an excellent critique, Suda\'s photography seems to be trying to grasp scenes remembered from bygone days, preserved despite the passage of time - everyday life, local festivals, the sliding doors typical of a traditional Japanese home, children dressed up for special occasions, a sleeping cat, an old woman with flowers kids on a school trip, or the painted face of a Kabuki actor. Yet these are not simple idealizations of the past . The matter-of-factness of Suda\'s photography gives a sense of balance and detachment while at the same time suggesting an otherworldliness. This signed limited edition is more than just a facsimile of the 1979 first edition. The original edition contained 100 images but Issei Suda has added 38 photographs not included in the earlier book. In the afterword to the book, Issei Suda considers the new edition \"the complete edition\". Measuring approximately 10 x 10.5 inches, the book is bound in black satin covered boards with a laid-in photograph. The book is housed in a functional black slipcase. The afterword as well as the photograph captions are in both Japanese and English. The book is signed and numbered by Issei Suda. The book and slipcase are in MINT condition. Cited in the reference work on Japanese Photobooks, Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 70s by Ryuichi Kaneko and Ivan Vartanian.

        Der heilige Benedikt übergibt die Ordensregeln an Scholastika.

      . Feder in Braun, braun laviert, über einer Skizze in schwarzer Kreide, mit Bleistift umrandet, auf Bütten, aufgezogen, rechts unten von alter Hand bezeichnet "Mola". 26,3 x 18,2 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung Joanneum, Graz, Lugt 2709; Sammlung L. H. Philippi, Hamburg, Lugt 1335.. Die Zuschreibung an den kaum bekannten Filippo Pedrini, den Sohn des in Bologna tätigen Malers Domenico Pedrini, gründet sich auf die unlängst von Clerici Bagozzi als Arbeit von Filippo Pedrini erkannte lavierte Federzeichnung "Deckenentwurf mit Bacchus, Ariadne, Diana und Minerva" im Art Institute in Chicago (H. Joachim/ S. Folds McCullagh, "Italian Drawings in the Art Institute of Chicago", Chicago und London, 1979, no. 147, pl. 154) und auf die von Veronika Birke Pedrini zugeschriebene lavierte Federzeichnung "Die Anbetung der Hirten" in der Albertina in Wien (V. Birke7 J Kertesz, "Die Italienischen Zeichnungen der Albertina. Generalverzeichnis", 2 Bde., Wien, Köln, Weimar, 1992, Bd. II, Inv. Nr. 1868). Beide Zeichnungen sind bislang jedoch irrtümlich für Arbeiten von Ubaldo Gandolfi gehalten worden, dessen Zeichenstil eine gewisse Verwandschaft mit Filippo Pedrini besitzt. Unsere Bestimmung der Zeichnung wurde von Veronika Birke bestätigt (Brief vom 4. August 1995).

        [Manuscript]: A Married Man's Diary of a passionate love for another man in New York City (1979)

      [New York City]. (1979). Blank book. Octavo. Quarter cloth and marbled paper over boards. A compelling diary kept by a married man (name withheld but identified in the diary): "at 37 in my married state!" - written at the culminating moment of a 15-month relationship with another man. His account consists of 10 manuscript pages in ink, covering a two-month period (February-March, 1979), with three additional pages of manuscript notes at the back (the remaining pages are blank). Near fine.The first page begins on February 9th, with the writer's [John] philosophical justifications for keeping a diary, inspired also by his current reading of Proust and D. H. Lawrence. In the second entry he begins to address the heart of the matter, giving an account of his friendship of over a year with a man (MR or Marc) that he hopes is on the verge of becoming romantic and sexual. The entries become more and more poignant, as his initial advances are rejected, and as he wrestles with conflicting emotions: "Here I am, feeling contrite, self-conscious again - another abortive pass at Marc - another irritated, pained rejection ... It's clear I want to separate the beautiful thing I felt, and want more of, with him from the other big realities of my life. And I can't trust him ... but still he gives me intense joy, intense pain. And always, too, the physical yearning. He is utterly beautiful ... I'm also willing to wait. It has to be reciprocal." With increasing emotion in this last three entries from March, he speculates at length on his and Marc's competing motivations, his urgent need for "the physical expression" (but also ambivalence about its consummation), and then describes how things turn out badly, culminating in a fight, and a mad "dash out into the night followed by hurled wet laundry into Columbus Avenue. ... God damn Marc for being so fascinating - or me, for being as fascinated by my own feelings for him." Laid-in is a manuscript note to John from Marc, written over a year later ("Mon. 5/19 - 1980") on a carbon receipt, in which he explains his attempts to get in touch. A provocative and moving testimony. .

      New York: Richard Marek Publishers. (1979). First. First edition. Slightly cocked with accompanying waviness along the spine, a tiny abrasion on the front paste down and bumped corner, about near fine in about near fine dustwrapper with a touch of wear at the heel of the spine and wrinkling along the bottom front edge. Signed by the DeMille. The true first edition of this scarce title, a thriller co-written with Block, a pilot and DeMille's childhood friend. DeMille's co-authorship was originally unattributed, and the book club edition (lacking a priced jacket as this has) is sometimes mistakenly offered as a first edition. Very likely the most difficult DeMille book to obtain, particularly in this condition and signed. Although not marked in any way, this copy is from the distinguished modern first edition collection of Bruce Kahn. .

        The book of the hackle.

      . Edinburgh, Scottish Academy Press, 1979. 8vo. xi, 140 pp., coloured frontispiece, six peculiar plates with original hackles including 29 different types. Original red morocco in original slipcase by A. Lumsden. Gilt edges.* On artificial insects which are largely based on Ephemeroptera in morphology and "behaviour". One of 85 numbered copies, of which this is no. 55, in a fine fresh copy. "My father's interest in dry-fly fishing for trout developed within him an interest in breeding poultry to provide the feathers which have the essential qualities necessary to keep the artificial fly floating on the surface of the water. In the last fifteen years or so of his life, during which he bred poultry exclusively for this purpose, he was forced to ask fundamental questions not only about how different characteristics and colours could be produced through selective breeding but more fundamentally, what exactly is a "good" hackle and what purpose is the hackle on a dry-fly intended to fulfil" (from the introduction). This edition should not be confused with the one without real hackles. A very good copy..
