        Oriental Field Sports;

      Norfolk: Antony Atha Publishers Ltd,, 1984. Being a Complete, Detailed, and Accurate Description of the Wild Sports of the East; and Exhibiting, in a Novel and Interesting Manner, the Natural History of the Elephant, the Rhinoceros, the Tiger, the Leopard […] The Whole Taken from the Manuscript and Designs of Captain Thomas Williamson … the Drawings by Samuel Howitt. Oblong quarto. Bound in the publisher's red half morocco, red cloth sides, spine lettered and decorated gilt, single gilt rules to covers, red endpapers, top edge gilt. Housed in the publisher's red solander box. 40 colour plates. A very attractive, bright copy. Limited issue, number 40 of 350 copies. An attractive facsimile of the original 1807 edition of "the most beautiful book on Indian sport in existence" (Schwerdt). Howitt "is first recorded as having a property at Chigwell, in Essex, and living as a gentleman of means—a keen sportsman, hunter, rider, and angler. A self-taught artist, he turned professional when financial difficulties forced him to earn a living. He drew on his enthusiasm and knowledge as a sportsman and produced sporting and natural history paintings, etchings, and illustrations. He sometimes worked in oils but more frequently in watercolours, and he was an accomplished etcher … [he] had an innate capacity for drawing animals, from commonplace hare and deer to exotic species that he studied in menageries. He was an animated draughtsman, and his drawings of hunts and sporting events have a fluidity and excitement fitting to the subject" (ODNB). Williamson had served for 20 years in Bengal, and here describes his "pig-sticking adventures; shooting tigers from machans and elephant back, hunting buffalo, driving hogs, bears and wolves; and shooting peacocks and other game" creating "a benchmark in capturing the sporting bibliophile's imagination" (Czech).

        Nathalie Sarraute - François Photographies Originales EDITION ORIGINALE

      S.l.: Par l'auteur, 1984. Fine. Par l'auteur, S.l. 1984-1987, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, 2 planches photographiques. - Diptych original photographic portraits in black and white made and drawn by Marc Trivier. The two photographs, taken facing are: - An original photographic portrait of Nathalie Sarraute in Paris in 1987 - An original photographic portrait of François taken to the psychiatric hospital in 1984 Manage 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. Unique tests taken by the artist. Rare diptych of one of the greatest contemporary photographers. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [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.

        HANDBAG

      New York: Original Artwork 1984. Marker pen and gold ink on black leather purse. 1984. Signed and inscribed to Joy by Andy Warhol on the lid and with $ signs drawn to the lid and back. Signed by Basquiat to the front with an additional 2 crown drawings and "EYE" design to the sides. This handbag was worn by Joy when she accompanied Basquiat and Warhol to Keith Haring's "Party of Life" at the Paradise Garage on May 16th 1984. The artwork was created by the artists during the course of the party. Provenance: Joy "Joystick" Bouldin. Joy was a key figure in the New York club scene of the early 1980s. Aged 18, she arrived in New York and, eschewing her plans to go to college, found work at the Mudd Club. Here she was befriended by Andy Warhol, who introduced her to his inner circle, including Jean-Michel Basquiat (for whom she modelled) and Keith Haring. In 1982 she quit her job in a law firm to "work the elevator" at Danceteria. Deciding who to let in to the private club gave her a key position at the forefront of the emerging culture of the time, positioned at the intersection between fashion, Pop Art, Hip Hop and graffiti. Like key door-people everywhere, Joy knew everyone and everyone knew her. She came up with the idea of having the best known and most applauded graffiti writers, pop artists and musicians tag or draw on her clothing as they came in and out of the club. In doing so she created a wearable original artwork merging fashion, art and music that now also serves as a significant historical document. Downtown New York, became the catwalk for wearable art, the streets were dotted with Suzan Pitt's second-hand painted raincoats, Clayton (Patterson) Hats, the clubs were where the circles of fashion and art danced the night away and there could be no better adornment than a Warhol and Basquiat handbag the downtown version of the uptown (Hermes) clutch. Joy Bouldin sat for Jean-Michel Basquiat several times and was the subject of two of his major works, RED JOY (sold £1.5m Sothebys London 2013) and BIG JOY (sold £2.6m Phillips London 2012), paintings which hung in the artist's first major solo exhibition at Mary Boone Gallery in 1984.

        Les intellectuels en question EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Paris: In Le journal des débats N°29, 1984. Fine. In Le journal des débats N°29, Paris Mars 1984, 18,5x26,5cm, agrafé. - First Edition printed small number of this reprinted from the journal of Pierre Nora, The Debate. Precious autograph signed by the author to his sister "... for you, this little reading and to help you cheer up." Marguerite Blanchot, renowned organist Chalon Cathedral, remained all his life in the family home with his mother and aunt. "It will gradually become, for the family, as the memory of origins." Very close to Maurice, she regularly corresponded with the writer who reflects him great recognition for his dedication to their helpless mother. If intense affection Blanchot for his mother and his sister shines in dedications of it, we know almost nothing of their relations. In the only biographical essay on Blanchot, Christophe Bident reveals, however: "Marguerite Maurice Blanchot worshiped his brother very proud of him, (...) it attached great importance to his political ideas (...) She read a lot (.... .) They phoned corresponded. A distance, they shared the same natural authority, the same concern for discretion. " Blanchot address him indeed many books from his library, now with her continuous intellectual link. As the passion of Blanchot for his mother, it is the turn of his work that we discover the finest examples: "Maybe the power of the mother figure she borrows its brightness to the same power fascination, and one could say that if the mother carries this fascinating attraction is as appearing when the child lives entirely under the gaze of fascination, it concentrates in itself all the powers of enchantment ". Cultivating absolute discretion, Blanchot pushed the art of erasing into his handwritten dedications generally brief and almost always written on cards attached to the rare books he offered his close friends. In contrast, in these precious autograph dedication of the authors to his mother and sister, Blanchot offers in all its fragility and, in the privacy of this correspondence, his work focuses on a previously unknown personal look. A small tear at the top of the back. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [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.

        So Long And Thanks For All The Fish

      London: Pan, 1984., 1984. Inscribed First Edition. Octavo. pp. [5], 191. Bound in publisher's black cloth with titles in silver to spine. Black dust jacket, designed by Gary Day-Ellison, with holographic panel to front cover, and titles in white to front cover and spine, unclipped. Includes publisher's compliment slip. Binding shows only minor bumping to tail of spine. Dust wrapper shows very well, with no signs of rubbing or wear. The book is inscribed by Adams to the front flyleaf, to David Bleasdale, a colleague and associate of the publisher. The title is the final message from the dolphins to mankind, which was misinterpreted as a surprisingly sophisticated attempt to do a double-backward somersault through a hoop while whistling the "Star Spangled Banner." Less a space travel, and more a time travel narrative, and which focuses primarily on the romance between Arthur Dent and Fenchurch, So Long is the fourth book in the Hitch-Hiker's Guide trilogy of five parts.
