        Love

      Dallas: Somesuch Press, 1983. 24pp. This copy features a romantic designer binding by the British bookbinder Nicky Oliver and is also inscribed by Stanley Marcus, noted miniature book collector and proprietor of the Somesuch Press, to his friend and fellow microbibliophile Donn Sanford. A collection of love poems by Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Browning, illustrated with two United States "Love" stamps and a British stamp in honor of St. Valentine's Day. Printed by the Feathered Serpent Press in black with vignettes and ornaments in bright red. Inspired by the hints of red, small illustrations, and swirling floral motifs in the text, Oliver bound the book in fair goatskin that she painted and printed with pieces of floral lace dipped in coral-hued leather dye. The covers have a subtle sheen, and in the artist's statement she notes that "Gold foil was stencilled onto the surface of the leather and distressed to highlight the lace design." Gilt-tooled dots also trace some of the lines of the pattern and decorate all three pink edges of the book. Pieces of lace and oil-based inks were used to relief-print the pink, leather-jointed endpapers, which were also accented with subtle gilt-tooling. Housed in a handsome black quarter-morocco box adorned with decorated leather strips matching the binding and a gilt-titled pink lettering piece to the spine. Oliver's artistic background is in illustration and design, and she seeks to incorporate elements of these into her bindings. She was named a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders in 2010 and has won several awards in their recent competitions. These achievements include "the Silver Triple" in the 2010 competition, with first prize for set book, open choice book, and the Edgar Mansfield Medal for best book. Extremely fine. (Bradbury, p. 281). (2 7/8 by 2 5/8; 73x67mm).

        TELEX PERSAN: IN THE NAME OF REVOLUTION ("TELEX IRAN: IN THE NAME OF REVOLUTION") - Rare Signed And Titled Copy of The First Edition - ONLY SIGNED AND TITLED COPY ONLINE

      Paris, France: Contrejour, 1983 - 1st Printing. Signed. 104 pages. Published in 1983. Collection of photographs. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, including the Aperture Edition, which is based on it. The edition is now rare. A stupendous production by Gilles Peress and Claude Nori: Oversize-volume format. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Gilles Peress. His telexes are brilliantly reproduced at the bottom of the images and give an urgency not only to the photographs but to the life of one restless photojournalist living in a foreign land from day to day. Essay by Gholam-Hossein Sa'edi appended at the end. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper in Paris, France to the very highest standards. In publisher's original inner plastic and outer paper shrinkwrap. Without DJ, as issued. Presents the finest photographic account ever produced by a Western photojournalist of the Iranian post-revolutionary situation. Peress was appalled by the one-sided and heavily propagandistic American coverage of the Iranian hostage crisis. With money from the National Endowment for the Arts, he flew to Iran on virtually a whim and photographed what he saw, experienced, and felt during a five-week period, from December 1979 through January 1980. The resulting images were lavished with praise and with a rare unanimity: "A book of brilliant visual nervousness between covers" (Cornell Capa). "I appreciate so much the visual strength of Gilles Peress' photographs. They depict an Iran so different from the one I knew through reading and my travels" (Henri Cartier-Bresson). Apart from the sheer vitality of the images, the book has become a landmark in photographic book design and has lost none of its daring innovativeness, impeccable beauty, and palpable immediacy. There is a fluidity to Peress' images that could only have come from his intuitive genius. Peress may never have read Canetti's great book on crowds, "Crowds And Power". But his book is the closest thing photography has ever achieved in capturing groups in action: "To the crowd in its nakedness everything seems a Bastille" (Elias Canetti). "I wanted to be there, to see it with my own eyes, without responsibility or commitment, either political, visual or conceptual, to anyone" (Gilles Peress). A masterpiece, this is an absolute "must-have" title for Gilles Peress collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black marker on the front free endpaper by Gilles Peress. It is also magnificently titled, signed, and dated in metallic-silver marker on the publisher's outer black paper wrap by the photographer: "Telex: Persan Gilles Peress 2006". The signature glows beautifully against the light. This is an Import title and is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First Edition still available online, is the only such signed and titled copy we have ever found, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap (both the inner plastic and the outer paper), and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 100 plates. Gilles Peress' "Telex: Iran" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest living photojournalists. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GILLES PERESS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 3931141365. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Telex Iran: In the Name of Revolution.

      Aperture, New York 1983 - First American edition, published simultaneously with the first French edition of the photojournalist's first book. Folio, original stiff photographic wrappers, photographic endpapers. Inscribed by Gilles Peress. In fine condition. Roth 101; Open Book, 330; Parr and Badger II, 252. Peress described his art well when he said, "I work much more like a forensic photographer in a certain way, collecting evidence. I've started to take more still lifes, like a police photographer, collecting evidence as a witness. I've started to borrow a different strategy than that of the classic photojournalist. The work is much more factual and much less about good photography. I don't care that much anymore about "good photography." I'm gathering evidence for history, so that we remember" (U.S. News). "Telex Iran chronicles the crisis in United States-Iran relations in late 1979 and early 1980 when militant Iranian students seized the American Embassy and held its inhabitants hostage. Peress' book is oversized, graphically bold and provides numerous perspectives on an extremely sensitive political problem Along with reportage of major political events, Peress' pictures record mundane spaces, places, people and moments of Iranian life in order to emphasize the incomprehensibility and confusion of the environment before his eyes. In this way the photographer is able to visualize precisely the culture gap that made such a historical misunderstanding possible. It is a brilliant tactic" (Roth, 28).

      Gale Research Company, Detroit 1983 - First edition, 1983. Two volumes, complete. Full leather with beautiful color inlay and onlay Zaehnsdorf bindings with gilt titles and gilt edges housed in cloth slipcase, clean unmarked text, Fine copies in Near Fine slipcase. Published by Gale as a Bruccoli-Clark title, this deluxe edition comes from Matthew Bruccoli's own collection, and we have been told by Rick Layman (Bruccoli's publishing partner) that Zaehnsdorf bound fewer than 50 sets this way to market to collectors, but that Gale trashed the majority of these, as they remained unsold. Matthew Joseph Bruccoli (1931-2008) was the foremost F. Scott Fitzgerald scholar and bibliographer of his time. Additionally, he wrote on, and edited critical editions of Hemingway, Hammett, Cozzens, Thomas Wolfe, John O'Hara, and Vladimir Nabokov. He studied bibliography under the tutelage of Fredson Bowers and worked with Jacob Blanck on the Bibliography of American Literature. He was responsible for the republication and rediscovery of dozens of forgotten American novels, and went on to be the editor and publisher of the 400+ volume Dictionary of Literary Biography, and was the chief editor of the University of Pittsburgh Press bibliography series.

        Collection of 65 Event Posters from the A-House, Provincetown, MA. ca 1983-1999

      Provincetown, MA: Atlantic House, ca.1983-1999. Large group of event posters from Atlantic House, or A-House, located in Provincetown, MA and considered by many to be the oldest Gay Bar in the U.S. The Atlantic House was built in 1798 by Daniel Pease, Provincetown's first Postmaster, and operated by him until his death in 1834. The building changed hands and names several times until 1871, when it was purchased by Frank Potter Smith and named Atlantic House - a name which has stuck permanently. During the 1920's, A-House was the hangout for writers like Eugene O'Neill and Tennessee Williams (a nude photo of Williams strolling on Provincetown beaches hangs in the bar), as well as any number of alternate lifestylists. In 1950 ownership was taken over by Reginald Cabral, and since then, it became both truly "gay friendly" and the most popular watering hole in Provincetown. Since the early 50's, A-House has held weekly theme parties in the big room (their disco), and has has a dedicated Macho Room upstairs, a bar for "Leather Men" and their admirers (www.ahouse.com/history.html). & & The present collection shows a superb representative sampling of posters advertising key A-House events: the annual White Party, Military Ball, Tattoo Party, the Harvest Moon Ball, the Glitter & Glamor Party, and a host of others. The posters were all illustrated or designed by various artists; many sport hand-drawn homoerotic artwork, others depict well-built shirtless celebrities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jean Claude Van Damme, with several examples reproducing photographs taken by Andy Warhol and Robert Mapplethorpe. A number of the posters bear sobering reminders of life at the height of the AIDS scare: posters entitled "Safe Sex Sluts," "BENEFIT - Sid, One of Our Own," and a 1994 Benefit poster for the Provincetown AIDS Support Group, prominently featuring a portrait of Judy Garland. The earliest posters are dated 1983, though a good many of them have the appearance of being earlier, as well as a group of color-copied posters likely dating from the late 1990's. A substantial group of posters from one of this country's historic and longest-running gay establishments. 65 posters, ca.10" x 15" - 14" x 17", offset printed or xeroxed in black & white and in colors on variously-colored stock; illus. A few examples with light edgewear, occasional spotting or grime on verso, faint creases and short tears - Very Good or better, with the majority being clean, Near Fine examples.
