        Dancing in Emilia

      Ivrea: Priuli & Verlucca, 1980. Prima edizione (First edition). ril, custodia (hard cover, slip-case). Perfetto (Mint). 8vo. Fotografie in bianco e nero e una nota di Gabriele Basilico. Testo di Mario Bernardo Valli Ma se il fotografo parte dagli spazi delle architetture e arriva ai volti, ai vestiti, ai corpi e ai comportamenti di chi vive in queste balere, sono più di ogni altra le immagini di alcune coppie non giovani che danno in tutta la loro evidenza significato all'insieme. Si tratta di squarci che il flash impone al buio, facendone emergere situazioni sparse, dal forte potere connotativo. La fotografia non possiede il dono di riproporre i suoni e gli odori, ma nel fondo di tali moderne officine del divertimento mi sembrano determinanti per una comprensione più approfondita, queste figure, la cui semiologia propone l'appartenenza ad una classe medio-bassa, positiva ed essenziale" (Bernando Valli). Una tavola applicata al piatto [Basilico, 2006]

        1155 Los Angeles Art Cards

      Los Angeles. 1980-2005. A collection of 1155 cards advertising various artist shows and gallery openings in the Los Angeles area from the early 1980s until the mid 2000s. All cards are near fine or better with some slight edgewear from mailing. The assemblage includes invitations to some of the most intriguing West Coast art shows of the last few decades including, "The Sissy Art of Eric White," an exhibit of art by Owen Smith (renowned for the art from the Aimee Mann album The Forgotten Arm), and the Bettie Page pin up artist, Olivia. From the Eric White show Peter Frank, reviewing for LA Weekly, wrote that "His dream-state scenes, full of puzzled faces, double-images, anachronisms and attenuated unlikelihoods are painted with a vertiginous exactitude, its wooziness enhanced with bilious colors, weird superimpositions, and a tendency to render everything a little wobbly and elongated---El Greco goes suburban." Over the years Los Angeles has proved to be an important center for new artists. The work plays on an extraordinary variety of themes including most obviously, Hollywood, celebrity, and Disney culture as well as with the Chicano culture of the city's Spanish roots. The images show everything from sultry women to trash on the side of the highway. Every trend of the last few decades is displayed amongst the plethora of cards. A unique gathering of over 1100 exhibition cards for artists collected over the years documenting the increasingly changing tides of art in Los Angeles. .

        Pleasure & Function

      [New York / LA : The Offices of Fend Fitzgibbon, Holzer, Nadin, Prince and Winters, 1980]. Near fine in stapled wrappers.. First Edition. Top-stapled zine, 24 pages, with the business card of The Offices of Fend, Fitzgibbon, Holzer, Nadin, Prince and Winters stapled to the front cover. A catalogue issued either in conjunction with or concurrent to an exhibition in downtown Los Angeles, February 1980, in the studio of David Amico, entitled Pleasure/Function, featuring the artists Peter Fend, Colen Fitzgibbon, Jenny Holzer, Peter Nadin, Richard Prince, and Robin Winters, whose group business card promised "practical esthetic services adaptable to client situation" and "our consultation includes a review of your needs and suggestions for realistic action." This short-lived collaborative, whether it was really an art advisory service, an advice corporation, or something else entirely, did produce at least this zine, which is rare to the point of almost nonexistence. A "stopper" for Richard Prince collectors; one of the greatest pieces of art ephemera of the era; scarcer than even Prince's Spiritual America invitation.

Durch den Bundesvertrag von 1815 [..] war die Möglichkeit gegeben, das Wehrwesen zu reorganisieren. Für den Bereich der Artillerie ergaben sich dabei mehrere Schwierigkeiten. Die Militärhoheit blieb weiterhin bei den einzelnen Kantonen. So beschaffte nicht die Zentralbehörde das Kriegsmaterial, sondern es war dies die Aufgabe der Kantone [..]. Geschütze waren teuer, weshalb sie so lange als nur möglich als feldtüchtig erachtet wurden. [..] Erschwerend kam noch dazu, dass durch Einfall fremder Heere wesentliche Bestände an Artillerie verlorengegangen waren. Dennoch existierten 1804 in unserem Land rund 700 Geschütze, deren älteste allerdings noch aus der Beute von Murten stammten. Schon zwei Jahre nach der Schaffung des neuen Staatenbundes wurden jedoch 1817 im Allgemeinen Militärreglement die neuen Richtlinien für eine vereinheitlichte Artillerie festgelegt. Mit welchen Schwierigkeiten man dabei fertig werden musste und welche Männer mit welchen Mitteln in welcher Zeit eine einsatzfähige Artillerie schufen, wird im vorliegenden Band mit aller Deutlichkeit aufgezeigt. Die Entwicklung in den zwölf zur Stellung von Artillerie verpflichteten Kantone wird u.a. anhand von Inspektionsberichten der Militäraufsichtsbehörde sowie von kantonalen Grundlagen dargelegt. Das Buch enthält also nicht nur genaue technische Angaben über die einzelnen Geschütztypen, sondern deckt auch viele organisatorische, politische, menschliche und kulturgeschichtliche Probleme auf." (p. 7). - "Unter dem Einfluss des Systems Gribeauval besassen ab 1750 die Artillerie-Geschütze aller eidg. Orte dasselbe Kaliber, doch blieb ihre Ausrüstung weiterhin uneinheitlich. Ihre geringe Bedeutung im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert zeigt sich darin, dass in dieser Zeit nur drei Reglemente (zwei bernische und ein zürcherisches) die Artillerie betrafen. 1817 umfasste der Sollbestand der eidg. Kontingente 67'516 Mann und 120 Kanonen. Dank der neuen Kompetenzen des Bundes auf militärischem Gebiet erfuhr die Artillerie zwischen 1850 und 1860 einige Veränderungen: Gebirgsbatterien wurden gebildet, 72 gezogene Vorderlader aus Bronze erworben. 1863 zählte die Bundes-Artillerie 210 Geschütze, davon ein Drittel mit gezogenen Rohren." (etc. aus: H. de Weck, Die Artillerie in der Schweiz; in HLS, Lemma Artillerie, Abschn. 3). -- ISBN 3-7276-7009-6 (Bd. 1), 3-7276-7010-X (Bd. 2), 3-7276-7059-2 (Bd. 3) -- NETTOGEWICHT 3.6 kg

        Three Large Photographs taken at a Gay Pride Parade

      [San Francisco?. circa 1980]. Three black and white photographs, measuring 11" x 14", laid into mat frames, with tissue guards, mounted inside three large portfolios, measuring 14.75" x 19". Each photograph has been very lightly hand-colored with tonal highlights (light pink, lavender, and blue), very sparingly and neatly applied mostly on dresses and other clothing. A fine set of compelling images of lesbian, gay, and transgender parade participants, most likely taken at a San Francisco Gay Freedom Day (Gay Pride) Parade duing the late 1970s/early 1980s. The large, close-up images include a topless woman in a studded leather harness flanked by teenage boys; two transgender women marching in drag; and a group of Native American men sitting together on a blanket (one of whom is wearing a T-shirt: "Gay American Indians") alongside children playing in a crowded park. The two women in drag are carrying handmade signs that read: "We Queen's are the first in the Kingdom we come with a message of Love & Peace understanding" and "I am Universal." Although we have been unable to positively identify where the photographs were taken, they all closely resemble Ted Sahl's famous series of photographs of the San Francisco Pride Parades taken from 1977-1984. .

Non poteva certo immaginare che il racconto gli sarebbe stato consegnato dopo sette anni! Il tempo trascorso aveva comunque contribuito al perfezionamento della lingua italiana, così Rummonds, che aveva molto apprezzato la storia di Santucci che ha per protagonista Geneviève, dalla cui bocca esce la voce del bambino, non ancora nato, che essa porta in grembo, maturò l'idea di compiere egli stesso la versione del testo in inglese. Serigrafia stampata a Verona da Luigi Berardinelli. Edizione impressa in torchio Washington del 1847 da Rummonds e Zanella. Carattere composto a mano Spectrum 14 punti.

        A People's History of the United States

      New York: Harper & Row, 1980. First edition, first printing of the historian's magnum opus. Thick Octavo. Signed by Howard Zinn on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. The nicest example we have seen of this title, as most copies were read and re-read. The New York Times wrote that author "[p]rofessor Zinn writes with an enthusiasm rarely encountered in the leaden prose of academic history, and his text is studded with telling quotations from labor leaders, war resisters and fugitive slaves. There are vivid descriptions of events that are usually ignored, such as the great railroad strike of 1877 and the brutal suppression of the Philippine independence movement at the turn of this century. Professor Zinn's chapter on Vietnam - bringing to life once again the free-fire zones, secret bombings, massacres and cover-ups - should be required reading for a new generation of students now facing conscription." Howard Fast declared A People's History to be "[o]ne of the most important books I have ever read in a long life of reading...It's a wonderful, splendid book - a book that should be read by every American, student or otherwise, who wants to understand his country, its true history, and its hope for the future.
