        Richard Misrach 1979

      San Francisco: Grapestake Gallery, 1979. Prima edizione (First edition). broch. Ottimo (Fine). 4to. 54 full-page black and white photographs Dopo aver sperato che "Telegraph 3AM" (fotolibro dedicato ai senzatetto di Telegraph Avenue in California) avrebbe contribuito a migliorare le condizioni di vita nelle strade Misrach, frustrato dal minimo impatto che il libro ebbe, si ritirò nei deserti della California meridionale e dell'Arizona, dove scattò fotografie completamente prive di figure umane. Lavorava di notte con uno stroboscopio che illuminava il paesaggio intorno, sperimentando inusuali tecniche di stampa nella camera oscura dell'università. Da questa esperienza derivò nel 1979 questo fotolibro, pubblicato senza un titolo o una parola di testo. Le uniche informazioni si trovano sul dorso del libro. [Parr, Badger, 2006]

        The Dead Sea Scrolls: Reproduction made from the original scrolls kept in the Shrine of the Book, Jerusalem

      Johnson Reprint Corporation, New York 1979 - 1/400. Quarto. 93pp (text), 108pp (photographic reproductions). Original linen covered box with title in Hebrew and English on metal plate fixed on top lid. Striking burgundy silk on inside of the box. Casket containing an earthenware jar, 3 facsimile scrolls placed inside the jar (just the way the original Dead Sea Scrolls were found), and a soft leather bound book telling the amazing story of the Dead Sea Scrolls and their discovery. Found inadvertently in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls are regarded by many as the most important archaeological find of the twentieth century. Mystery and intrigue surrounded their acquisition and there are many accounts of their subsequent ‘wanderings’ as they continued to change hands after their discovery. The three facsimile scrolls represent some of the largest and most important Dead Sea Scrolls: The Great Isaiah Scroll, the Rule of the Community, and the Habakkuk Commentary. - 1) The Isaiah Scroll is the only complete biblical book surviving among the Dead Sea Scrolls. Found in Cave One at Qumran in 1947, it dates from about 120 BCE. The text of the scroll hardly differs from the version used today and demonstrates the degree to which the text of the Bible was faithfully transmitted over the centuries. The Isaiah scroll is approximately seven metres long and is made up of 17 parchment sheets, sewn end to end. - 2) Also discovered in Cave One at Qumran, this scroll fragment is known variously as the Rule of the Community and the Manual of Discipline, and was in two pieces when it was brought by the Bedouin who discovered it to Bethlehem in 1947. The text embodies the rules of conduct for the Qumranites themselves, rules which are additional to the 613 commandments found in the Pentateuch (Torah). These rules of conduct regulated interpersonal relationships and matters of personal piety in a Jewish community which had apparently separated itself both geographically and ideologically from the more mainstream practice of Judaism in Jerusalem. - 3) The Habakkuk Commentary, also discovered in Qumran Cave One, is part of a group of literature found in several caves at Qumran, which have come to be known by the Hebrew word pesharim, "commentaries." These explanations often interpret the biblical text with reference to events in the writer’s own time, the recent past, or the near future. Other such commentaries found at Qumran explain in this way the biblical books of Isaiah, Micah, Zephaniah, Psalms, Hosea, and Nahum. The text of the scroll hardly differs from the version used today and demonstrates the degree to which the text of the Bible was faithfully transmitted over the centuries. The transcription was made from the excellent photographs which form the basis of this edition, from the earlier photographs published by M. Burrows, and from the original Scroll themselves. Studies dealing with the textual and paleographic aspects of the Scrolls were also used. Each scroll is rolled and protected by a piece of linen cloth. Size of the earthenware jar: 17" tall, 8" width. The soft leather bound book is gilt-lettered on spine and covers, contains 93 pages of text and 108 pages featuring color photographic reproductions of the three scrolls, along with their transcriptions. Box, jar, scrolls and books in very good condition (like new). The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in a series of eleven caves around the site known as Wadi Qumran near the Dead Sea in the West Bank (of the Jordan River) between 1946 and 1956 by Bedouin peoples and a team of archeologists.

        Earthworm

      Princeton, N.J.: Ontario Review Press. [1979]. First. Post card poem. First separate edition, first issue (with "God bless him" in the first line of the third stanza"). Poem card. Fine. Very scarce, traditionally one of the hardest Updike items to find, especially in the first issue. Reportedly only a total of 100 copies of both issues together were published. De Bellis and Broomfield A77: "Roberts reports 100 copies in the entire edition; number in each printing not established." In our experience, the first issue is much the scarcer. .
