        Ubu Roi: Drame en Cinq Actes, by Alfred Jarry

      Paris: Dupont-Visat, 1982. Large quarto. (6), 61, (13)pp. One of 150 copies. An important work of absurdist and surrealist theater based loosely on Shakespeare's Macbeth. It is illustrated with eight colored etchings and a "pop-up" theater by the Chilean expressionist artist, Roberto Sebastian Matta. The etchings depict Pere Ubu and other characters from the play, done in the style of comic strips and Mayan carvings. Georges Leroux, one of the important twentieth century French bookbinders, chose vermillion calf as a palette to bind Ubu Roi. He sculpted relief figures depicting Father and Mother Ubu on the front and rear covers. Modeled after 1950s style Japanese robots, Leroux incorporated a series of gears, springs, and clock wheels in the chest cavities of both figures. He added multi-colored wires, metal widgets, sheet plastic and marbles to the figures and has Father Ubu's holographic eyes spinning in his head. The spine is lettered in gray calf onlays; the flyleaves and doublures are red suede. Book label of noted collector Jan Van Der Marck, whose 1997 work The Art of Contemporary Bookbinding features this work. Van Der Marck writes, "Attracted to the incongruous, like the Surrealists, Leroux indulges his love of tinkering by analyzing, dissecting, and reproducing the most salient imagery and features of a given text and illustration," often using irony and "tongue-in-cheek visual rhymes." For Ubu Roi, he drew on Matta's bold color palette, and the spiral clock spring inside of Father Ubu's chest plays on the characteristic, distinctive spiral designs used both in Matta's illustrations and in Jarry's original depiction of the greedy ruler. Extremely fine, housed in a chemise and slipcase. A complete tour-de-force accompanied by a reproduction of the tin toy, "Chief Robotman," which is battery powered and was the influence for Leroux's design. (Van Der Marck, The Art of Contemporary Bookbinding, p. 29-31; 73).

      New York City, NY: Xavier Moreau, Inc. , 1982. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Xavier Moreau, Inc. , 1982. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 80 pages. Landmark collection of female nudes. One of the most influential erotic art photography books of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The book is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Helmut Newton and Xavier Moreau: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and photo-tableaux by Helmut Newton. Essay by Karl Lagerfeld, one of the greatest fashion designers of our time. Printed on thick coated stock paper in the United States to the very highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents some of Helmut Newton&#39;s finest and most representative female nude and sex pictures for the very first time in book form. One of the most beautifully produced titles in Helmut Newton&#39;s oeuvre, it is the photographer&#39;s third collection, after "White Women" (1976) and "Sleepless Nights" (1978) . The three books defined his style, cemented his reputation, and remain his most important individual collections. Newton&#39;s now-classic work melds eroticism, compositional brilliance, drama, fetishism, impeccable technique, and voyeurism in a way that makes the viewer feel happily complicit and guiltily uneasy in equal parts. That is his singular achievement as an artist who worked mainly in the compromised commercial realm, and yet became "the most important photographer of the 20th century". That&#39;s according to Benedikt Taschen, who produced SUMO, the biggest photography book ever published thus far (it weighs 70 pounds and comes with its own stand) . Helmut Newton died in a car crash in Hollywood on January 23, 2004. He is buried next to Marlene Dietrich at the Berlin Cemetery, the city&#39;s peripatetic and most successful photographer back home for good. A "must-have" title for Helmut Newton collectors. <b><i> This presentation copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen on the half-title page by the photographer: "For David Ruttenberg, with best regards [followed by best wishes in French] in Tinsel Town, Helmut Newton". The recipient is a renowned photography figure/collector whom Newton unmistakably personally knew. "Tinsel Town" is Newton&#39;s (and many other artists&#39; and writers&#39;) term of endearment for Hollywood. This title is now highly collectible. This is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First American Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Almost all other copies available online have major flaws yet command hundreds of dollars. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. </b></i> 47 plates. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER HELMUT NEWTON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0937950025.

Her work has illustrated numerous texts, from Aesop and the Brothers Grimm to Charles Simic, and many miniature books. In a blue mat and a simple oak frame. Very fine.

        Bad Weather

      London: A. Zwemmer Ltd, (1982). A fine copy in illustrated wrappers (there was no hard cover edition).. First Edition. Oblong quarto. Texts by Michael Fish and Peter Turner. Lengthily INSCRIBED by Martin Parr; his first book. With an original SIGNED photograph from the period laid in (printed in 2006). While the image does not appear in the book, it is clear from Parr&#39;s inscription that he wished it had been included. Evident here are overtones of Stieglitz&#39;s bad weather pictures, as well as the use of heightened contrast popularized by the Provoke photographers. Parr&#39;s influence in contemporary British photography is unparalleled, but it is his contribution to the understanding and importance of photographic literature that may be his most profound legacy.

        Typed Letter Signed and Book Review

      1982. A typed letter signed by Butler to poet Tom Clark, regarding Clark&#39;s review. In 1981, Butler, who would later win the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for his collection A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain, published his first book, The Alleys of Eden. It was reviewed by Clark in the February 11, 1982 Los Angeles Times, with the headline "Vietnamization of a Deserter&#39;s Mind." On May 12, Butler wrote to Clark, saying, in part: "I have received twenty major reviews of the book but none of them was more sensitive or insightful than yours. The best literary criticism actually explains an author to himself. That&#39;s what your review did. I understand my own book better after reading your review and I want to thank you for that." The letter is signed "Bob Butler." Also included here is Clark&#39;s original, 3-page manuscript review, signed by Clark: "...Desertion, Butler seems to say, is an inevitable act, made necessary by the human state. Every small movement is an abandonment of the past, with death looming over everything as the greatest desertion of all..." Clark&#39;s review makes it clear that Butler&#39;s protagonist -- an Army intelligence officer who ends up deserting out of self-disgust over his involvement in the torture and death of a Viet Cong prisoner -- is an analogue for the larger society, which deserted both Vietnam and those who fought there, leaving both the Vietnamese and the veterans as "displaced persons," in both countries. Clark&#39;s review is penned on the back of copies from a book about Celine and folded in half; near fine. A photocopy of the published review is included. Butler&#39;s letter is folded for mailing; else fine in a near fine envelope. With a copy of Alleys of Eden [NY: Horizon (1981)], which is fine in a very near fine dust jacket with a short edge tear. An insightful review of one of the best novels to come out of the Vietnam war, and the author&#39;s appreciative response. . First Edition.
