         Jane Peterson An American Artist

      Privately Printed, Boston 1981 - Limited edition of 750 copies (this is copy number 14) Signed by the author. From the inside flap: In 1938, at the age of sixty-two, Jane Peterson was named the "most outstanding individual of the year" by the American Historical Society for artistic achievement. She was only the second woman in the history of the Society to be so honored. Her photograph appeared as the frontispiece in that year's volume of The Encyclopedia o^ American Biography, published by the Society, and the biographical article which appeared in the book begins: "During her career as a painter, Jane Peterson (Mrs. M. Bernard Philipp) has won an established place in American art. While her oils and water colors cover a wide range of subjects, she is perhaps best known for her paintings of flowers, which are so rich and vivid that she has made this field peculiarly her own. Her work is represented in numerous permanent collections and has brought her many honors." [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Genocide and Vendetta: The Round Valley Wars of Northern California

      University of Oklahoma Press, Norman 1981 - First Edition. 8vo. x, 403 pp. Bibliography. Photo-illustrations. A fine copy in fine dustjacket of this relatively scarce book. After an accusation of plagiarism (determined to be "unintentional," but nonetheless damning) was brought forward by Virginia P. Miller, a former student of Estle Beard, in 1985, the book was immediately withdrawn by University of Oklahoma Press and has not been re-printed. Here is the history of one of the darkest chapters in California history - the literal genocide ("a war of extermination" as the first governor of California, Peter Hardeman Burnett, enthusiastically phrased it in 1851) of Native Americans by European Americans in Round Valley, CA, in Mendocino County. The first six chapters present the history of the Yolla Bolly country up to 1865, describing the region, the culture of the Yuki and their neighbors, and the depredations of the white settlers. The second part of the book, covering the years from 1865 to 1905, describes the lives and fortunes of the victorious white settlers. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Autoportrait. Photographie Originale

      Large original black and white self-portrait taken in 1981 in Bruxelles.Artists, strangers, madmen, abbatoirs, trees - Marc Trivier photographed each of his subjects with the same interrogative intensity. All his photographs are in the same square format, simple and confined, with no retouching or alteration of the framing, and seem less to show off a subject - famous or unknown, in or out of power, dead or alive - than to seek out a presence."What interested me was not simply photographing a body or a face, but the curious situation of someone taking a photo of someone else." In placing his portraits of artists side by side with a divergent pair, Trivier denudes the work of its effect and reveals the enigmatic nakedness of the photographic body. "In his cosmogony every thing, every being - vegetable, mineral or human - deserves the same respect. "In his cosmogony every thing, every being - vegetable, mineral or human - deserves the same respect. For all are subject to the same iron law: solitude" (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, 05/03/2011, on the occasion of Marc Trivier's retrospective at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie).Unsigned silver prints, like most of Trivier's work. Unique proofs printed by the artist.Tiny traces of fold on the photograph.An exceedingly rare diptych by one of the great contemporary photographers.
