        [Photographs]: 1980s Punk Scene

      [circa 1980s]. A collection of 38 mostly black and white, with a few color, loose photographs measuring between 3.5" x 5" to 8" x 10" with captions. Slightly curled edges else near fine or better. A cache of early photographs from the 1980s punk scene including candids, publicity photos, and live photos. The photos include bands such as Flipper, Bad Religion, Social Distortion, The Meatmen, L7, Husker Du, Black Flag, T.S.O.L., The Undead, Flipper, Die Kreuzen, and 45 Grave, among others. The live shows are from dive bar shows to outdoor festivals showing on stage antics like Jack Grisham, singer of T.S.O.L., holding a microphone to his crotch, as well as Husker Du playing at Sam's bar with bassist Greg Norton sporting the band's own t-shirt, and an early L7 show. There is also a photo of the Dead Kennedys playing a show in Finland in 1981 which includes a random hand in the crowd giving the finger. Some of these appear to have been used for reviews and articles about the bands with notes on the verso like "please return after use," a photo of a young G.O.H. reads "notice our nice tans." The publicity photos from labels such as SST, Touch and Go, and Reflex were taken by some of the biggest names in the scene including Glen E. Friedman, Joe Cultice, Bobby Castro, and Michael Jang, and depict staged full band shots of the Meat Puppets, Black Flag, and Flipper, among others.An extensive assortment of unique images depicting the 1980s punk scene. .

        Interieurs

      Archives d'Architecture Moderne, Bruxelles 1981 - Oblong 4to, 128pp. Numerous colour plates. Text in French. A little rubbing to wraps. Ristelhueber's first book. She was originally comissioned to write the text for the book- by her future husband and Viva member Francois Hers, but unable to contribute text she instead contributed photographs. The book is divided into two parts, the first are colour interiors (by Hers), and the second are black & white photographs of the occupants (by Ristelhueber). Originally comissioned to document social housing in Wallonia and seeing a lack of coherence in the housing stock, Hers instead chose to focus in the interiors, and their saturation of space with patterns, furniture, objects and tapestries.

        Lijiang River Guilin.

      Number 25 of a limited edition of 99.. 1981.. Large limited edition photolithograph of the Li River from a series by Sir Sidney Nolan. 72 x 57cm. Framed 97 x 82cm. Very good in a handsome gold frame. Striking image of the Li River and limestone karst hills near Guilin in Guangxi Province by Australian painter Sir Sidney Nolan. Sidney Nolan was emotionally and intellectually engaged and inspired by China and the work of Chinese artists. He visited China on at least seven occasions, returning home to paint the feeling and emotion that the glorious landscapes he saw had inspired. The expressionist landscape depicted here is one in a series of paintings of the Lijian River inspired by Nolan's visit to the famous area around Guilin. It strikes the viewer as both Chinese while simultaneously very Western. In a conversation between Sidney Nolan and Edmund Capon, Sidney Nolan in China, published by the Art Gallery of NSW in 1981, Sidney Nolan talked about his first impressions of the extraordinary landscape around Guilin. "When I got out of the aeroplane at Kweilin, first I looked at these mountains, which of course, I knew from some [Chinese] paintings, but I was amazed at the intensity and the actuality of the mountains and my first thought was, "Oh, so that is how they did those over lapping blots, and that is where it comes from, it is actually real". Sidney Nolan's paintings of the Li River are a stunning example of the power of mixing Chinese and Western influences and aesthetics. These works deserve to hold an important place in the Australia-China relationship. .

      USTC 401508 (6 copies); Voet 1981 (4 copies, incl. 3 the same); WorldCat (3 the same copies); cf. M. Huybrechts (ed.), Marine insurance at the turn of the millennium II (2000), p. 18. Rare royal decree on marine insurance addressed to the Council of Brabant, replacing the decree of 27 October 1570. In 1569 the Duke of Alfa took a radical measure by banning all marine insurance. "This "provisional" decree of 31 March 1569 was abolished by an ordinance of 27 October 1570 of Philips II. Marine insurances were again allowed. … Ships could only leave the port with the permission of an officer after an inspection of their armament. This decree also charged that all policies should contain a detailed report of the goods on board. … Diego Gonzalez Gante was appointed to inspect these contracts. He also had to prepare an new instruction. This decree contained as well a formulary of an marine insurance. After a petition of the merchants and Nations of Antwerp, a new ordinance was promulgated three months later, on 20 January 1571. This decree provided that only ten percent remained to the own risk of the insurance taker. The goods, the name of the vessel and the captain had to be mentioned in the insurance policy. To prevent fraud, Diego Gonzalez Gante was also appointed to control everything. An insurance policy which was not recorded by him was to be declared null and void. Not only in Antwerp, but also in Bruges, Amsterdam and Middelburg people under his authority had full powers to verify this" (Huybrechts). This decree also prohibited life assurance.With three lines underscored, otherwise a very good copy and wholly untrimmed.

        Museum für (Sub-) Kultur

      West Berlin: Museum für (Sub-) Kultur, 1981. First edition. 4to, [4], 83 pp. + index. Xeroxed on various colors of paper stock. Clipbound into orange card wraps. Illustrated with b/w photographs and reproductions. One of 150 copies printed. Texts in German and English. Artists' publication documenting exhibitions at the Museum für (Sub-) Kultur from 1980-1981. The Museum was an artist-run alternate arts venue created and operated by Detlef Carl, Gerti Fietzek, and Andreas Stucken, and financed by "surplus gained through the jobs of" the three. It was connected to a library and collection of works from the 1960's and 1970's at Stucken's private flat. The group was associated with COLAB and Fashion Moda as part of Collectiva International, a group of alternate art groups in the early 1980's. This connection with the New York downtown scene is exemplified here by the inclusion of work by Jenny Holzer & Peter Nadin (including photographs of altered graffiti and photographs of posters in situ from their early 1981 exhibition at the gallery), Reese Williams, Sean Scully, Catherine Porter-Scully, and Judy Rifka. Other artists included are Onze Rue Clavel, Goran Djordjevi , Zvi Goldstein, Gerard Hemsworth, Jochen Krüger, and Dominique Pasqualini. Rare. This is the first example we've seen, and OCLC locates only one holding. Fine.

        Philosophical Explanations.

      Cambridge, MA: The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1981. First edition of Nozick's metaphysical, epistemological, and ethical treatise. Octavo, original cloth. Warmly inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Frank Murphy, a constant and interesting presence in my office hour(s)? Best, Robert Nozick Dec. 1982." From the library of Harvard, fine in a very good dust jacket with some wear and rubbing. Uncommon signed and inscribed and with noted provenance. "An important book...[Nozick is] a philosopher who is answering the questions posed by such philosophers as Kierkegaard, Sartre, Marcel and Buber with the aid of tools produced by such very different philosophers as W. V. Quine, Saul Kripke and Hilary Putnam...[He displays a] striking and imaginative originality. For he does nothing less than propose a new way of doing philosophy...Perhaps one good way for the serious general reader to attack this often difficult but always rewarding book would be to begin at the end. First read the fine last chapter on 'Philosophy and the Meaning of Life'...It should then be very clear why it is important for you, whoever you are, to go back and read the rest of this book" (Alasdair MacIntyre New York Times Book Review). Michael E. Bratman describes Philosophical Explanations as "a rich and wide-ranging exploration of some of the deepest issues in philosophy." He praises Nozick's discussion of free will, writing that there is much about it that is, "fascinating, suggestive, and worth our further reflection."
