        ARTHUR ELGORT: PERSONAL FASHION PICTURES

      New York City, NY: Conde Nast Publications, 1983. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Conde Nast Publications, 1983. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 101 pages. Retrospective collection of the photographer's work. One of the most beautiful photography books of the 20th century. Limited Edition of 1500 numbered and signed copies. The first and only edition. Published as a hardcover original only, the book was not commercially distributed and given only to friends, colleagues, and supporters of the photographer and the publisher. There is no ISBN. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Arthur Elgort and Steve Hiett: Oversize-volume format. Linen cloth boards with black titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs and brief text by Arthur Elgort. List of Plates And Credits appended at the end. Printed in gravure on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is outstanding in every respect: Each gravure plate is palpably rich and warm. In wraparound pictorial DJ, which features "Wendy Whitelaw, Park Avenue, July 1981", as issued. Presents Arthur Elgort's "Personal Fashion Pictures". The full range of the photographer's work: Fashion photographs, portraits, snapshots, nudes, and semi-abstract work. Fashion remains Arthur Elgort's passion. While he took lovely photographs of just about everything else, in this book at least, he sees them all from his personal perspective as Fashion Everywhere, that is to say, Beauty Everywhere (hence the title). For Elgort, fashion is not just on the runway, it is in the streets, in people's beautiful faces and voluptuous bodies, dressed or undressed, male or female, as seen by him and captured for posterity by the camera. Some of the most beautiful sequences in the book are his photographs of Balanchine and his New York City Ballet dancers, in rehearsal and posing imperiously before the camera, immobile just this once. His single most famous photograph (of the fashion model Wendy Whitelaw) is proof of fashion's inherent sex appeal: Elgort photographs Whitelaw from behind, the right sleeve of her Azzedine Alaia dress casually off her shoulder. The image has been copied innumerable times by other photographers without credit ever being given to Elgort (whose fame has now also been somewhat eclipsed, and he doesn't mind, by his son Ansel, the Hollywood actor/heartthrob). The photograph of the Dutch model Piet Houtenbous and his son frolicking in the nude offers a glimpse of pure joy. An absolute "must-have" title for Arthur Elgort collectors. <b><i> This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page. It is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Arthur Elgort. This title is a photography book classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and despite its imperfection (slight wear on the DJ edges and spine, but it's there) is still in especially fine condition: Each gravure plate is clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 72 gravure plates. One of the most brilliant photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. .

The two photographs, taken facing are: - An original photographic portrait of René Char in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue in 1983 - An original photograph of a ruined slaughterhouse in Brussels in 1985 Portrait artist.. , anonymous, crazy, slaughterhouse or tree: Marc Trivier photographed each subject with the same interrogative intensity. All made in the same square, elementary and closed without editing or cropping format photographs seem less staging a subject - famous or unknown, elected or deposed, living or dead - interrogate a presence. "What interested me was not just photographing a body or face, but this particular situation is someone doing the photo of someone else." By comparing portraits artists in their corresponding altered Trivier undresses the work of its effects and reveals the enigmatic photographic nude body. "In his cosmogony, every thing, every being, plant, animal or human, deserves the same respect for they are all facing the same iron law. Solitude." (Luke Desbenoit in Télérama, 05/03/2011 on the occasion of the retrospective Marc Trivier at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Silver prints unsigned, like most works of Trivier.

He established the Gay Sunshine Press in 1975, which was notable for its pioneering anthologies of gay writing from other cultures, and his Gay Sunshine Journal (1970-82) was particularly influential for its interviews with prominent gay writers of the era.

        Cycle of the Werewolf

      (Westland): Land of Enchantment. (1983). Inscribed by King to his editor at Doubleday, Samuel Vaughan: "For Sam - Thanks for making something that could have been so hard so easy - and so successful. Quite a fall, huh? Your friend, Steve King/ 11/30/83." Vaughan had edited King's Pet Sematary, which had been published on 11/14/83 with a first printing announced as 500,000 copies. Cycle of the Werewolf is a single story by King, issued with illustrations by Berni Wrightson, who had collaborated with King on Creepshow. There was a signed limited edition of 250 copies; the trade edition, this one, had 7500 copies -- a tiny fraction of the numbers for Pet Sematary and King's other trade publications at that time. While the limited edition is scarcer in sheer numbers, our experience is that genuine Stephen King association copies are much rarer than his signed limiteds. Slight corner taps, else fine in a near fine dust jacket with one very small edge chip and some minor edge wear. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine.

      Universal City Studios, Inc., 1983., Universal City - Revised first draft of the screenplay. 4to. 8 1/2" x 11" stiff, green printed wrappers, 254 brad-bound pages. The screenplay is signed by Elmore Leonard on the title page. Fine, bright copy. The 1985 film starred Burt Reynolds and was also directed by him. During the filming, Leonard became dissatisfied with Reynold's interpretation of the novel and in a five-page photocopied 1984 letter to the director that is laid-in, he weighed in at length on why he was disappointed, and says in part : "What happens is that when I'm writing I see real people and hear real people talking. But when I view I see, too often, actors acting, actors hitting the wrong word, mugging, overstating or elaborating on a punch line, ad-libbing cliches, setting a record for the frequent use of 'asshole.' I hear what seems to me too many beats between exchanges, pauses for reactions, smiles for the benefit of the audience -- like saying, get it? --- or sneers or wide-eyed looks that I don't see in real life."

      UK First Edition, First Printing (New English Library, 1983). A scarce first edition and the first Stephen King wrote under the 'Richard Bachman' pseudonym. The novel was first published in the US in 1977 and was later included in the hardcover omnibus 'The Bachman Books', published in 1985. Given that the novel describes a school shooting, it has been associated with actual high school shootings that occurred in the 80s and 90s. In response, Stephen King allowed the book to go out of print in 1997 and later published an anti-firearms essay in 2013 under the title 'Guns'. In very fine, unread condition. Free from tears and creases.
