        American Ballet [Alexander Godunov, Martine Von Hamel, Anthony Dowell, Natalia Makarova, Fernando Bujones, and Cynthia Gregory]

      Lithograph, 16 1/4 x 21 inches. Signed by Hirschfeld and numbered 6/250 in pencil, lower margin. 1980. Framed. "I had a lot more fun than usual doing this one. As I look at the visual motif now, the dancers look like treble clefs almost, or like musical instruments in the way they blend together. The sweeping line works beautifully in this drawing. Ballet, of course, has a lot of that boundless energy, that flying around the stage, that I like so much. In fact the ground is only hinted at here with that one thin bending line - or maybe its a horizon line, and who knows how high up in the air they might be cavorting about."

Of Princess Grace, Fleur wrote, "I had known her very well for almost forty years since Cary Grant brought her to dinner in New York. I can describe her in a few words: she was good, not bad. She was happy about her life, not sad. She loved all her children and they loved her. So did Prince Rainier, and everyone who really knew her (including the population of Monaco"

Octavo, original half black cloth, original dust jacket. $1500.First edition of Warhol's 1980 memoir, with 16 pages of photographic images featuring Warhol and his famous friends, inscribed: ""To Yvonne love Andy Warhol,"" with a symbol scrawled below, and additionally signed on the front panel of the dust jacket.Warhol wrote this memoir with his frequent collaborator and long-time friend, Pat Hackett. Together, the pair wanted to depict the height of the Pop movement—1960 to 1969—by focusing on Warhol's art and film work. Based largely on the audiotapes that Warhol recorded during the time in question, the work features many anecdotes about celebrities and people who frequented the Factory, Warhol's New York studio. ""A vivid re-creation of a great time to live and a great time to die"" (Martin Scorsese). The ""Yvonne"" to whom this copy is inscribed may be Yvonne Rainer, the American dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker, known for her experiments in minimalism. She was one of Warhol's close friends and inspired his famous 1963 film, ""Sleep."" Small bookseller sticker to front flap of dust jacket.Book very nearly fine, with a bit of offsetting from inscription to adjacent pages. Dust jacket about-fine, with only mild toning to spine.

Eine Ausstellung in der Ständigen Vertretung der Bundesrupublik Deutschland. (Köln: Rheinland-Verlag, 1980). Square quarto, original stiff photographic wrappers. $2800.First edition of this major exhibition catalogue, the first photobook to link in one volume the images of Sander, and of Bernhard and Hilla Becher, a scarce presentation/association copy inscribed on the half title by Hilla Becher to leading photographer/publisher Ralph Gibson, “For Ralph, from Hilla,” with Gibson’s ownership stamp, featuring 60 handsome full-page duotones.Appearing on the ten-year anniversary of the photobook Anonyme Skulpturen (Anonymous Sculptures), this important exhibition catalogue brings together three giants of 20th-century photography— Bernhard Becher, Hilla Becher and Weimar portraitist August Sander. This is notably the first work to substantially link, in one volume, their seminal contribution to photography, and this copy is especially notable in its inscription by Hilla Becher to photographer/publisher Ralph Gibson, whose Lustrum Press was revolutionary in offering photographers such as Robert Frank “a market for the kind of highly personal photography books that regular publishers usually fear to touch” (New York Times). In this volume’s 60 full-page duotones are 30 plates representing the Bechers’ photography from 1961-1980— images in which “the seeds of European photography’s future were being sown” (Parr & Badger I:193). The outstanding 30 duotones of Sander’s work span 1906-1945, and feature some of his finest portraiture of Germany’s people between the wars, a project that was only partially complete with the appearance of his 1929 monograph Anlitz der Zeit (Face of Our Time)—“a crowning achievement of photography in this century” (New York Times). Essay by Klaus Honnef, preface by Günter Gaus. As issued without dust jacket. Text in German. See Roth, 52, 194; Parr & Badger I:124, 266; Open Book, 84, 258. Ownership stamp of Gibson; light marginalia.A fine presentation copy with a highly memorable association.

        Two Autograph Letters, Signed ("Freya Stark"), to Mr. Lindsay, 1980, concerning her travels and his projected visit to Italy [with:] Traveller's Prelude [Signed copy of second printing]

      Italy, 1980. 4 pp., on two sheets of her letterhead, Via Canova, Asolo; Treviso. 8vo. Letters, some wrinkling. Book, green cloth, printed dust jacket. 4 pp., on two sheets of her letterhead, Via Canova, Asolo; Treviso. 8vo. Two choice late letters from Dame Freya Stark (1893?-1993), discussing friends, exotic travels, and accommodations in "the tower". The first letter, dated 4/4/80, reads in part, "… I had meant to write myself to thank you both for your kindness that evening, but I have only just reached home after a very happy time reaching (the foot of) Annapurna on a pony, 3 lovely weeks among those hills & mountains (the Sherpas refuse to call these two heights by the same names). It made me long for mountains as if I were still young enough to climb them …" The second letter, discussing a projected visit by the recipient, "… except that alas! I shall not be here as I leave in a week for a long wander, Greece, Turkey, to Aleppo & hope not to be back till end of October - I have however declared myself free & hopeful for a film with Colin Luke (whom no doubt you know?) … the tower on the other hand is vacant & not too cold in September …" The reference is to documentary film Towards an Unknown Land. A Journey in the Company of Freya Stark (1982). The copy of her autobiography bears a pencil note "Please return to John Murray, 50 Albermarle St., W1" and her ink signature, "subscribed by Freya Stark 19/1/1980" A fine pair of letters revealing the explorer and author to be as game as ever.
