        He:/She: (SIGNED)

      Chicago: Chicago Books, 1980. First Edition. Hardcover.. Near Fine. Oblong 8vo, Unpaginated (66pp). Stiff spiralbound wraps. 8 four-color reproductions of Polaroid SX-70 images. Text in English. Flatsigned to titlepage by Heinecken. No creases/dents/scuffs. More images available on request. Legendary and very scarce artist's book from the late and controversial Heinecken, who made it originally whilst teaching in Chicago. The New York times described it thus: "In the 'He/She' pieces the sexual content is mostly implied by the text, since only a few of the Polaroid prints are sexually explicit. 'He' and 'She' characters talk somewhat disjointedly about such matters as kissing and going to bed, but the main thrust of the dialogues is to explore what Heinecken has called 'relational possibilities.' The pictures, which often have little to do in any obvious way with the dialogue they frame, seem simply to offer a visual set of relational possibilities that interact with those of the text." Wonderful to see in such a good condition, and of course, signed.

        I Want to Take Picture

      Atlanta: Nexus Press. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST EDITION of one of the seminal photobooks of the 1980's. SIGNED BY BURKE INSIDE ORIGINAL DRAWING OF HIS HAND. One of only 1000 copies printed of the first edition. "Bill Burke has become known for his large-format portraits shot on Polaroid Land film, which have the formality and feel of nineteenth-century photographs whilst remaining acutely modern in their sensibilities. In his best book, I Want to Take Picture, this technique is entirely appropriate, since it records his personal pilgrimage to southeast Asia, duplicating the enterprise of the old colonialist photographers but adding a contemporary twist... "Although the pictures have a nineteenth-century feel, the book is also a diary that records a twentieth-century experience. Burke not only uses his photographs, but also employs documents- reproductions of ephemera like money and bus tickets- and collages them with handwritten captions. The result is a kaleidoscopic impression of his journeys, taking the book out of the documentary realm and into that of the personal road trip. However, this particular sojourn does not merely connate the search for self that occupies so much of late twentieth-century American photography. It also represents a moving attempt to come to terms with some of the events that haunted his generation" (Parr/Badger, The Photobook). Roth 101. Atlanta: Nexus Press, 1987. Folio, photo-pictorial boards. A fine copy. Rare signed.

        Firestarter signed limited edition

      Huntington Woods, MI: Phantasia Press. F/F. 1980. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 0932096050 . 1st edition/1st printing. This is # 311 of 725 only of these signed limited edition in dustjacket and slipcase copies, Signed and dated: 'Stephen King, July 6, 1980' (the 2nd of the 4 days that it took King to sign these limited editions). Firestarter was Stephen King's first signed limited edition and this signed limited edition predates the 1st trade edition by 3 months (not issued by Viking till the end of September, 1980). Though this limited edition is beautifully constructed, it was not as well protected as many of his later signed limited editions, being housed in an open sided slipcase and also having a dustjacket which many times got considerable wear from sliding in and out of the slipcase. Consequently, few have survived in excellent condition. The book is bound in dark blue leather boards with gilt printing and this one is fine: straight, clean and tight with no damage or soiling, and no handwriting other than the author's on the limitation page at the back of the text. The dustjacket is also fine: price intact ($35.00), clean, crisp and bright with Whelan's famous artwork in unfaded condition and with no damage or wear. It has been protected by a removable, clear mylar cover. The leather-textu red paper-covered boards slipcase is also in fine condition, with no tears, soiling or damage, though there's a hint of a couple of tiny surface indentations on one side (like perhaps some object with tiny legs sat on it for a while). Especially important because it 'is' the first of King's signed limited editions. Made into a movie in 1984. Charlie, born after her parents participated in a government controlled drug experiment, can start fires with her mind alone, and The Shop wants her as a weapon. ; DJ color art; Signed by Author .

      Kelpra Studios., London 1980 - Eye & Camera. Red,Blue,Yellow.(Levinson 317)Original Screenprint printed by Kelpra Studios in 1980. Signed in pencil, not numbered, proof pull outside the edition of 150. In excellant condition.Image size: 400 x 605 mmSheet size 600 x 750 cm.The Eye and Camera prints are complex works, not yet appreciated for their approach to the figure and to modernism. The series is based on photographs of Piper’s wife Myfanwy, and presents the female figure in semi-nude poses which at first glance are suggestive of advertising imagery. It shows Piper at the forefront of Pop Art, taking up Pop Art’s concern with bright colours and images from popular culture.The Eye and Camera series reduces the figure to its essential features, almost to an abstraction. Although the individual works are thematically similar, there is no repetition between them. The prints transform a photographic portrait of a nude into a more universal statement about love and the body. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Many of the words collected here derive from Latin, and almost all of them are drawn from such famous Renaissance works as Roberto Valturius&#39; "De re militari" and Luigi Pulci&#39;s "Vocabulista". This is an exceptional document for the study of that period of the Italian language when rules and spellings were not yet firmly established. In addition Codex Trivulzianus contains an important series of architectural drawings which are primarily studies pertaining to a competition held to complete the construction of the Milan cathedral.

A number of other monks then die under mysterious circumstances and William is asked to conduct an investigation. The novel provided the basis for the 1986 movie of the same name starring Sean Connery as William of Baskerville and Christian Slater as Adso of Melk. Signed copies of the work are quite scarce.

        Tom Wesselmann

      New York: Abbeville Press, 1980. 1980 Stated First Edition. INSCRIBED by Wesselmann on the title page, in blue ink, "For Mary and Alan / with much fondness / Tom Wesselmann / December 1981." A NEAR FINE copy: clean, otherwise unmarked and firmly bound. Pages are fresh and fine. Hardcover of ivory buckram cloth over boards is titled in black on spine and front cover with color pictorial pastedown on front cover. Cover is clean and sharp. Slight rubbing and toning along edges of boards and spine but otherwise cover is fine - no bumps, tears or frays. Binding and hinges firm and intact; light salmon colored endpapers fine. The book is in a clear acetate jacket which is quite worn- toned along edges and spine, several tears and large chips. It has done well in protecting the book. A new acetate could replace this if the buyer desires. A momentous monograph on this important American artist - a leader of the 1960s Pop Art movement. It is actually autobiographic, as Slim Stealingworth was Wesselmann&#39;s pseudonym. Its 324 pages are packed with reproductions of Wesselmann&#39;s works: collages, early nude collages, bathtub collages, Great American Nudes, seascapes, smokers, mouths, faces, sculptures and several studies and drawings - as well as a few photographs of the artist and his studio.
