        Indian Country [The Author's Copies]

      NY: Viking. (1984). Matthiessen's two working copies of this collection of essays on various issues related to American Indians, especially those issues having to do with the culture clash between corporations looking to exploit natural resources and tribes asserting their rights to control their land and its uses, while retaining a connection to the traditions by which they lived in harmony with their environment and held the land sacred. According to published reports at the time, it was during the course of researching this book that Matthiessen came upon the story that evolved into In The Spirit of Crazy Horse, which effectively sidelined this work for several years. Two copies from Matthiessen's library: one, marked by Matthiessen, "PM Copy," and with his corrections to (mostly) Chapter 5, "Akwesasne." A very good copy in a very good dust jacket, each of which bears a couple of coffee stains. The second copy is even more extensively marked by Matthiessen with underlinings, cuts, rewrites, and coffee stains. Laid in are a brief tribute to Maezumi Roshi and a two-page, heavily hand-corrected outline for a 2006 "Dharma Talk," in which Matthiessen mentions, among other things, the passing of William Styron and the passing of Craig Carpenter, who appears in Indian Country and to whom the book is dedicated. First ten pages of text detached, heavily corrected, and laid in; as mentioned, coffee-stained and also dampstained; a fair copy in an edgeworn dust jacket heavily stained, predominantly on the verso. For the two heavily marked author's copies, talk manuscript, and short tribute. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.

        Nathalie Sarraute - François. Photographies Originales

      Par l'auteur, 1984. - Par l'auteur, S.l. 1984-1987, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, 2 planches photographiques. - Dittico originali ritratti fotografici in bianco e nero realizzato e disegnato da Marc Trivier. Le due fotografie, scattate rivolte sono: - un originale ritratto fotografico di Nathalie Sarraute a Parigi nel 1987 - Un ritratto originale fotografica di François adottate per l'ospedale psichiatrico nel 1984 Gestisci artista Ritratto, anonimo, .. pazzi, nel macello o un albero: Marc Trivier fotografato ogni soggetto con la stessa intensità interrogativa. Il tutto realizzato nella stessa piazza, elementare e chiuso senza modifica o ritagliare le fotografie formato sembrano meno messa in scena di un soggetto - famosi o sconosciuti, eletti o deposto, vivi o morti - interrogare una presenza. "Quello che mi interessava non era solo fotografare un corpo o del viso, ma questa particolare situazione è qualcuno che fa la foto di qualcun altro." Confrontando ritratti artisti nella loro corrispondenti modificato Trivier sveste il lavoro dei suoi effetti e rivela il corpo nudo fotografico enigmatico. "Nella sua cosmogonia, ogni cosa, ogni essere, vegetale, animale o umana, merita lo stesso rispetto per esse si affacciano tutte la stessa legge di ferro. Solitude." (Luca Desbenoit in Télérama, 05/03/2011 in occasione della retrospettiva Marc Trivier alla Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Stampe d'argento firmato, come la maggior parte delle opere di Trivier. Prove uniche scattate dall'artista. Dittico raro di uno dei più grandi fotografi contemporanei. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Diptyque de portraits photographiques originaux en noir et blanc réalisés et tirés par Marc Trivier. Les deux photographies, mises en regard, sont: - Un portrait photographique original de Nathalie Sarraute à Paris en 1987. - Un portrait photographique original de François pris à l'hôpital psychiatrique de Manage en 1984. Portrait d'artiste, d'anonyme, de fou, d'abattoir ou d'arbre : Marc Trivier a photographié chaque sujet avec la même intensité interrogative. Toutes réalisées dans le même format carré, élémentaire et clos, sans retouche ni recadrage, les photographies semblent moins mettre en scène un sujet - célèbre ou inconnu, élu ou déchu, vivant ou mort - qu'interroger une présence. «Ce qui m'intéressait, ce n'était pas de photographier simplement un corps ou un visage, mais cette situation particulière qui est quelqu'un en train de faire la photo de quelqu'un d'autre.» En confrontant les portraits d'artistes à leur correspondant altéré, Trivier dévêt l'oeuvre de ses effets et dévoile l'énigmatique nudité du corps photographique. "Dans sa cosmogonie, chaque chose, chaque être, végétal, animal ou humain, mérite le même respect. Car tous sont confrontés à la même loi d'airain : la solitude. " (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, le 05/03/2011 à l'occasion de la rétrospective Marc Trivier à la Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Tirages argentiques non signés, comme la plupart des oeuvres de Trivier. Epreuves uniques tirées par l'artiste. Rarissime diptyque d'un des grands photographes contemporains.

        The Hunt for Red October, A Novel (SIGNED, ASSOCIATION COPY)

      Naval Institue Press 1984 - Hardcover with dustjacket : very good minus / fair plus. Jacket in new mylar protector; jacket has edge wear with some short tears and small chips; moderate scratching and rubbing; dampstain moderately on the outside but also on the unseen back side where the red of the book bled onto the jacket, although the book is only slightly affected; no price on jacket. Book is a red cloth hardcover with silver lettering on spine and a stamped illustration of submarine and hammer and sickle on front; gray endpapers; no additional printings stated on copyright page thus indicating a first printing by this publisher. The binding has light wear along bottom edge with the cloth worn through a small bit at front corner; a small amount of the red is rubbed off along that bottom edge; very slight soiling to outer edges of text block; slight rippling to a few pages in the middle. Inscribed and signed on ffep by Tom Clancy to Clive Cussler, with a fun inscription. The signature is different than is usually seen, but there is enough similarities between the writing that makes it seem likely that Clancy wrote with a deliberate and slower hand than usual; also, the dedication to Ralph Chatham has been partly crossed out and rewritten in Clancy's hand with a humorous reference to Coonts.

        Coming Attractions [SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY / RALPH GIBSON]

      Basel: Inter Art Corporation, 1984 - 4to (295 × 205 mm), pp.[104]. 72 black-and-white photographs. Foreword by Ernest Schmidt, text by Gerard Wirtz. Design by Ernest Schmidt and Beat Presser. Plain endpapers. Black-and-white photo-illustrated glazed paper-covered boards; lightly rubbed, light wear to extremities, light toning to page edges and covers. Signed, dated and stamped by Presser and with Ralph Gibson's ex libris stamp on front free endpaper, Gibson's shelf mark on a small circular red sticker to spine. Near-fine. First edition, signed in the year of publication, from the library of Ralph Gibson who published an American edition of this book. Beat Presser is a Swiss photographer, born in 1952 in Basel, who pursued a career as a fashion and advertising photographer after working in film production companies. In 1976, on the day before he returned home from a long trip to New York, Presser saw copies of Steve Lawrence and Miguel Sanchez's The Picture Newspaper being sold in Times Square. He returned to Switzerland inspired and immediately began putting together his own illustrated newspaper called Palm Beach News. For the next issue the name was changed name to Village Cry and it was decided that each issue would be themed. In total he produced seven issues between November 1976 and winter 1977 (Palm Beach News and six issues of Village Cry, followed five years later by a one-off issue of Flitz Flying Magazine in 1982. A feature on Klaus Kinski in one of the issues led to Presser working on several projects with Kinski and Werner Herzog, including seven months spent in the Peruvian jungle photographing the making of Fitzcoraldo (1982). In 1983 Presser travelled at short notice to Dallas, Texas to meet a collector who had asked to see a selection of his work. Presser produced some 90 prints in 4 days and nights but the quality was not as good as he would have liked as they had been rushed. Fortuitously, on the same street as his studio someone had recently acquired a Rank Xerox photocopier and was earning a living providing a copying service. The high contrast reproductions were fairly crude but the resulting images pleased Presser who copied his recently made prints and took them to a binder. Before leaving he showed this dummy to Ernesto Schmidt, his former gallerist, who was also very impressed with the quality given to the images by the photocopier and immediately offered to publish the work as it was. Whilst on his way to Dallas, Presser stopped off to meet Ralph Gibson who he had met some years earlier. After being shown the dummy Gibson offered to publish an American edition under his Lustrum Press imprint providing he could make a few changes to the sequence and issue it as a paperback, Gibson also suggested the title Coming Attractions. According to Presser the Lustrum Press edition sold very well, however the present edition did not, he estimates only around a third of the 1000 copies printed sold before the publisher went bankrupt. Coming Attractions includes a selection of Presser’s work from his self-published newspapers, as well as other work made during the filming of Fitzcoraldo and whilst working as creative director of an advertising agency in South-East Asia.

        Hesiod's Crown.

      Bristol: Woolley Dale Press for the Arnol Fini Gallery,, 1984. Small folio. Unbound sheets contained in the original white card portfolio, illustrated by an inscription by Tilson in black green red and blue. Illustrated throughout and with an original engraving by Tilson laid in. Portfolio a little dusty but an excellent copy. First edition, from a total printing of numbered 300 copies this is one of the top 100 signed by Tilson and with the additional signed and number engraving included. Tilson takes his theme from the supposed Dionysian contest to establish the true master of Greek poetry, Homer or Hesiod, and through a series of wonderful line drawing and scraps of text traces this notional battle in his inimitable imagery and symbology. This issue with the extra engraving is uncommon.

      London: Alecto Historical Editions, 1984. First Edition. Volume XV only (of 34) of this stunning collection copperplate engravings of plants collected by Sir Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander while they accompanied Captain James Cook on his voyage around the world between 1768 and 1771. Plants were collected in Madeira, Brazil, Tierra del Fuego, the Society Islands, New Zealand, Australia and Java. No full set of the engravings in color was published until the late twentieth century, when Alecto Historical Editions, in partnership with the British Museum, produced 110 sets, 100 of which were offered for sale. As described by Alecto: "the engravings are printed in color à la poupée, up to ten colours being worked directly into the single plate before each print is pulled, with additional details added in watercolour. Each sheet is identified by a blind embossed stamp on the recto, recording the publishers' and printer's chops, the copyright symbol and date. The initials of the individual printer, the plate number and the edition number are recorded in pencil. Each of the engravings is protected within a double-fold sheet of Somerset mould-made 300 gsm paper, acid free and cut to form a window mount." This volume, from set #83, includes 22 engravings contained in three cloth-backed portfolios within a cloth solander box, as issued. Some minor scuffing to the box; contents fine. Broadsheet folio (29" x 22 1/2").

        Les intellectuels en question

      In Le journal des débats N°29, 1984. - In Le journal des débats N°29, Paris Mars 1984, 18,5x26,5cm, agrafé. - Prima edizione stampata piccolo numero di questa ristampato dal diario di Pierre Nora, il dibattito. Prezioso autografo firmato dall'autore a sua sorella "... per voi, questa piccola lettura e per aiutarti a rallegrare." Marguerite Blanchot, celebre organista Cattedrale di Chalon, è rimasto tutta la sua vita nella casa di famiglia con la madre e la zia. "E diventerà gradualmente, per la famiglia, come la memoria delle origini." Molto vicino a Maurice, che corrispondeva regolarmente con lo scrittore che lo riflette un grande riconoscimento per la sua dedizione alla loro madre impotente. Se intenso affetto Blanchot per sua madre e sua sorella brilla in dediche di essa, non sappiamo quasi nulla delle loro relazioni. Nel solo saggio biografico su Blanchot, Christophe Bident rivela, però: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot adorato fratello molto orgoglioso di lui, (...) che annette grande importanza alle sue idee politiche (...) Ha letto un sacco (.... .) hanno telefonato corrispondeva. Una distanza, hanno condiviso la stessa autorità naturale, la stessa preoccupazione di discrezione ". Blanchot lo affronta infatti molti libri dalla sua biblioteca, ora con il suo continuo legame intellettuale. Come la passione di Blanchot per la madre, è la volta del suo lavoro che scopriamo i migliori esempi: "Forse il potere della figura materna che prende in prestito la sua luminosità alla stessa potenza fascinazione, e si potrebbe dire che se la madre porta questa affascinante attrazione è come appare quando il bambino vive interamente sotto lo sguardo di fascino, si concentra in sé tutti i poteri di incanto ". Coltivare assoluta discrezione, Blanchot ha spinto l'arte di cancellare nelle sue dediche manoscritte generalmente brevi e quasi sempre scritte su schede allegate ai libri rari offrì i suoi amici più stretti. Al contrario, in questi preziosi elementi a sua madre e sua sorella, Blanchot offre in tutta la sua fragilità e, nella privacy di questa corrispondenza, il suo lavoro si concentra su un aspetto personale precedentemente sconosciuto. Un piccolo strappo nella parte superiore della schiena. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale imprimée à petit nombre de ce tiré à part de la revue de Pierre Nora, Le Débat. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Maurice Blanchot à sa soeur "... pour toi, ce peu de lecture et pour t'aider à reprendre courage". Marguerite Blanchot, organiste de renom à la cathédrale de Chalon, demeura toute sa vie dans la maison familiale, avec sa mère et sa tante. "Elle deviendra peu à peu, pour la famille, comme la mémoire des origines." Très proche de Maurice, elle correspond régulièrement avec l'écrivain qui lui témoigne une grande reconnaissance pour son dévouement envers leur mère impotente. Si l'intense affection de Blanchot pour sa mère et sa soeur transparait dans les dédicaces de celui - ci, on ne sait presque rien de leur relations. Dans l'unique essai biographique sur Blanchot, Christophe Bident nous révèle cependant : "Marguerite Blanchot vénérait son frère Maurice. Très fière de lui, (...) elle attachait une grande importance à ses idées politiques (...). Elle lisait beaucoup (...) Ils se téléphonaient, correspondaient. A distance, ils partageaient la même autorité naturelle, le même souci de discrétion." Blanchot lui adresse en effet de nombreux ouvrages provenant de sa bibliothèque, maintenant avec elle un lien intellectuel continu. Quant à la passion de Blanchot pour sa mère, c'est au détour de son oeuvre que l'on en découvre les plus beaux témoignages: "Peut - être la puissance de la figure maternelle emprunte - t - elle son éclat à la puissance même de la fascination, et l'on pourrait dire que si la Mère exerce cet attrait fascinant, c'est qu'apparaissant quand l'enfant vit tout entier sous le regard de la fascination, elle concentre en elle tous les pouvoirs de l'enchantement".Cultivant une discrétion absolue, Blanchot poussait l'art de l'effacement jusque dans ses dédicaces manuscrites généralement succinctes et rédigées presque systématiquement sur des cartes jointes aux rares ouvrages qu'il offrait à ses proches amis. A l'opposé, dans ces précieux envois à sa mère et sa soeur, Blanchot s'offre dans toute sa fragilité et, dans l'intimité de cette correspondance, porte sur son oeuvre un regard personnel jusqu'alors inconnu. Une petite déchirure en tête du dos.

      Naval Institue Press, 1984. Book. Very Good-. Hard Cover with Dustjacket. Signed by Author(s). First Edition First Printing. Hardcover with dustjacket : very good minus / fair plus. Jacket in new mylar protector; jacket has edge wear with some short tears and small chips; moderate scratching and rubbing; dampstain moderately on the outside but also on the unseen back side where the red of the book bled onto the jacket, although the book is only slightly affected; no price on jacket. Book is a red cloth hardcover with silver lettering on spine and a stamped illustration of submarine and hammer and sickle on front; gray endpapers; no additional printings stated on copyright page thus indicating a first printing by this publisher. The binding has light wear along bottom edge with the cloth worn through a small bit at front corner; a small amount of the red is rubbed off along that bottom edge; very slight soiling to outer edges of text block; slight rippling to a few pages in the middle. Inscribed and signed on ffep by Tom Clancy to Clive Cussler, with a fun inscription. The signature is different than is usually seen, but there is enough similarities between the writing that makes it seem likely that Clancy wrote with a deliberate and slower hand than usual; also, the dedication to Ralph Chatham has been partly crossed out and rewritten in Clancy's hand with a humorous reference to Coonts. Photos will be uploaded soon.
