        Poster signed. Moonrise. Images 1923-1974

      1981 - ADAMS, Ansel. Signed poster for Images 1923-1974. Boston: New York Graphic Society, 1981. Large photographic poster (24 by 36 inches), mounted on foam core. $5000.Striking original poster advertising the republication of Adams' Images 1923-1974, signed by him at the bottom.Near the end of his life, Ansel Adams "decided to produce a series of posters replicating as closely as possible the quality of his originals. Ansel chose three images to begin with""Moonrise, Clearing Winter Storm, and Aspens (vertical)""and made extra-large prints of each so that they could be directly laser-scanned with no enlargement. Each poster was designed to highlight a recent book. Ansel's favorite printer, David Gardner of Gardner Lithograph, made superb duotone reproductions on heavy coated stock, and the combination of laser-scanning and exquisite printing resulted in an image with a huge range of clearly defined tones". Ansel supervised the first press runs" (Alinder, 337). This scarce exhibibition-size signed poster, with its striking image of Moonrise, is within that select first group, and highlights his photobook, Images 1923-1974 (1974). Often viewed as "the greatest photograph ever made," Moonrise was photographed by Adams in 1941 on a road near Hernandez. He released the shutter as "the sun sank below the clouds behind him". The creation of Moonrise was serendipitous: while a painter or sculptor can work from stored memories and imagination, something must happen in the real world in order for a photographer to make a photograph" (Alinder, 185-191). "The stunning contrast between light and dark, as if we stand in this photograph at the very cusp of day's transition into night, captures the emotional feeling that Adams first visualized when he saw the scene". It represents the essence, he felt, of a changing world" (Sayre, World of Art, 265). "Ansel knew that it was among the very best photographs he had ever made" (Alinder, 193). Light faint foxing to top margin. An impressive signed image. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Early Years 1900-1927

      1981 - STEICHEN, Edward. The Early Years 1900-1927. (New York: Aperture, 1981). Large elephant folio (17 by 21 inches), original ivory self-wrappers; pp. 8. WITH: Elephant folio suite of 12 original photogravures. Housed in publisher's woven-silk portfolio. $7800.Signed limited first edition, number 182 of 1000 copies, signed by photographer Beaumont Newhall and Steichen's daughter Mary Steichen Calderone on text pages three and five, respectively. Included are Steichen's "The Flatiron," "In Memoriam," Moonrise" and "Heavy Roses.""In a career that spanned 77 years, Steichen became the country's most celebrated and highest-priced photographer". a craftsman of genius" (McDarrah & McDarrah, 468). Toward the end of his life Steichen approached Aperture with the idea of publishing his early photographs as hand-pulled photogravures. Intrigued by the project, they enlisted "many years and the talents of many people" to recapture this "exquisite, all-but-forgotten process." This limited edition of 12 hand-pulled photogravures features some of Steichen's most memorable images. Perhaps most renowned is his 1905 rendering of New York's Flatiron Building, a photograph that "is a dramatic representation of that moment at dusk when the sky turns a leaden blue-green and highlights glow in the half-light". There is no clearer example of an early modernist photographic composition, one that combines contemporary Pictorial expression in art". alive with the gestures of living in New York just as it becomes a vital, international metropolis" (Frizot, 318). This edition is one of 500 using photogravures printed on Rives BFK, with the remaining 500 editions printed on Papier Duchene. An additional 100 artist proofs of the suite of 12 photogravures were also produced. With essays by Newhall and Calderone. A fine copy of a splendid volume.

        Signed photograph.

      New York: , c.1981. "10 × 8" glossy promotional photograph. Very good, docketed verso, "Blue Note 2-12-81". Signed "Thelonius Monk" together with a small self-portrait sketch with trademark beard and hat, it also appears that Monk tried to sign previously with a dry pen which has left some vague ink traces, and a couple of scratches to the emulsion. The date docketing verso places the signing unusually late in Monk's life; "In 1973, he vanished again. There were rumours that he was ill and had been taken in by his old friend and mentor the Baroness Nica de Koenigswarter, who lives in a big house in Weehawken, New Jersey. The rumours turned out to be true, and this is what the Baroness had to say about Monk before he died. 'No doctor has put his finger on what is wrong with him? He's not unhappy, and his mind works very well. He knows what is going on in the world, and I don't know how, because he doesn't read the newspapers and he only watches a little telly. He's withdrawn, that's all. It's as though he had gone into retreat. He takes walks several times a week, and Nellie comes over from New York almost every day to cook for him. He began to withdraw in 1973, and he hasn't touched the piano since 1976. He has one twenty or thirty feet from his bed, so to speak, but he never goes near it. When Barry Harris visits, he practices on it, and he'll ask Monk what the correct changes to 'Ruby, My Dear' are, and Monk will tell him. Charlie Rouse, his old tenor saxophonist, came to see him on his birthday the other day, but Monk isn't really interested in seeing anyone. The strange thing is he looks beautiful. He has never said that he won't play the piano again. He suddenly went into this, so maybe he'll suddenly come out'" (from Whitney Balliett's obituary of Monk, reprinted in Goodbyes and Other Messages: A Journal of Jazz 1981 - 1990).
