        Glimpses [One of 15 Copies]

      Northampton: Basement Press. 1985. Of a total edition of 15 numbered copies, this is Copy No. 10, and is signed by Catheryn Yum, the book's designer and printer. Laid into this copy is a photocopy of the original autograph letter from Yum to Carver's publisher, requesting permission to reprint two stories for a project for her typography class. Interestingly, she wrote to McGraw-Hill, publisher of Will You Please Be Quiet, Please?, for permission to use two stories that she did not end up using. At the bottom of the sheet, Carver has written his personal reply to her, which reads, in part: "You have my permission, and gladly, for you to use the above mentioned stories in the manner in which you describe." Yum has appended a note on the same sheet indicating that this was the only response that Carver wrote himself; the permission to use the stories she actually ended up using, which came from a book published by Knopf, came in the form of "your basic form letter from a secretary." Also laid in is a photocopy of a two-page letter she wrote to Carver after the book was finished (apparently enclosing a copy for him), thanking him for his stories and his permission, telling him a bit about herself, and identifying the tipped-in illustration as "a hand drawn lithograph printed on a hand press." Clothbound. A fine copy of one of the scarcest Carver items, with some background information about it. No copy has appeared at auction; OCLC locates only 4 copies in institutional collections. Hardcover. Fine.

        "Page blanche".

      1985Encre de Chine signée en bas à gauche, (1985), 21 x 30.5 cm. Jean GOURMELIN (Paris 1920 - Meudon 2011) s'initie au dessin dés son plus jeune âge, puis travaille avec l'artiste Charles Portel qui lui enseigne la technique du papier-peint, de la gravure sur bois et du pochoir, avec Nobilis. Il complète sa formation à l'Ecole des Arts Décoratifs et a pour maître Othon Friesz. Avec Max Ingrand, maître verrier, il se passionne pour cet art des vitraux et réalise ceux des Châteaux d'Amboise, de Blois, de la Cathédrale de Saint-Malo ... Grâce à Maximilien Vox il revient à l'édition et l'illustation. Sa rencontre avec l'écrivain de science-fiction Jacques Sternberg détermine le début d'une amitié forte avec Louis Pauwels et sa collaboration à la Revue Planète. Ils lançent le mouvement du "Réalisme fantastique" et, selon l'expression de Sternberg, "Où les compositions de Jean Gourmelin brillaient comme des soleils noirs ... Son inspiration, il la puise dans ses terreurs, ses vertiges, ses gouffres métaphysiques, ses fantasmes, son théâtre d'épouvante et ses décors de rêve". Il anime les "Chroniques" de France-Soir. Des affiches pour le cinéma et le théâtre sortent de ses crayons. De nombreuses expositions saluent son talent dans des galeries et musées ( Centre Culturel de Meudon, Musée Georges Pompidou ...). Le syndrome de la page blanche, l'angoisse des artistes en quête de la perfection...

        Fotografie originali FERROVIA Bologna - Pistoia. 1859/1864 Fotografo Odoardo Galli.

      - Rara e preziosa raccolta di 39 (35 + 4 doppie) grandi fotografie originali montate su cartoncino di cm. 42,5x34,5 (foto di cm. 24x19,5 circa). A secco sul cartoncino impresso il nome del fotografo: O. Galli - Firenze. Sul retro, un foglietto a stampa con la didascalia "Strada ferrata dell'Italia Centrale" e l'indicazione del luogo. La raccolta  custodita in una grande scatola/album in tela nera moderna. Con la raccolta di foto, il libro a cura del Gruppo di Studi Alta Valle del Reno, La ferrovia Transappennina, Porretta Terme, 1985 ed il libro Documenti principali relativi alla Strada Ferrata dell'Italia Centrale. Modena, Soliani, 1852. Si tratta di riprese del fotografo pistoiese O. Galli realizzate per conto dell'impresa costruttrice (Impresa Lapini e C.) attorno al 1864. Le immagini riguardano i principali manufatti in avanzata fase di costruzione od appena ultimati, lungo tutta la linea da Bologna a Pistoia. Spesso, oltre ai viadotti, ponti e gallerie, sono rappresentate anche le maestranze, ritratte nelle pose tipiche del lavoro. La ferrovia Porrettana fu il primo collegamento attraverso l'Appennino che, tra la Toscana e l'Emilia Romagna, scavalcava interamente la dorsale appenninica collegando Bologna e Pistoia. Detta anche Strada ferrata dell'Italia Centrale, venne inaugurata ufficialmente da Vittorio Emanuele II nel 1864. Al tempo fu un'opera di enorme portata ingegneristica con le sue 47 gallerie e i 35 ponti e viadotti, per una lunghezza totale di 99 km. Il tratto pi difficile risultò quello tra Pracchia e Pistoia, dove in 26 km. doveva essere superato un dislivello di 550 metri. L'impresa fu affidata all'ingegnere francese Jean Louis Protche, che risolse il problema progettando 2 tornanti ferroviari nel tratto Piteccio-Corbezzi. A Porretta Terme è stata dedicata una Piazza a questo Ingegnere e a Vittorio Emanuele II che ha inaugurato questa Ferrovia. Il Fotografo Odoardo Galli risultava, per il solo anno 1863, iscritto al ruolo degli esercenti il commercio a Bologna. Di questo fotografo, associato in alcuni casi a S. Mazzotti, rimangono alcune fotografie della Strada Ferrata Bologna-Pistoia; eseguì anche molti positivi dello Stabilimento termale di Porretta. Axs [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ANDY WARHOL: AMERICA - A TWICE-SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY FROM THE ARTIST

      (WARHOL, ANDY). Warhol, Andy. ANDY WARHOL: AMERICA - A TWICE-SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY FROM THE ARTIST. Signed Presentation Copy from the Artist. New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1985. First Edition. 4to. Pictorial Wrappers. Artist Monograph. Fine. 224pp, profusely illustrated in b&w. Designed by Barbara Richer. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "From the camera that never leaves his side now comes a love letter, a remembrance, and an astonishing portrait of modern life: "America". Culled from his ten year archive, it is a work of blinding insight, a book of strange beauty and enormous contradictions. Here are the very private world of wealth and celebrity, the young Americans of today with their sexy, muscular bodies, and the street world of America's poorest people. Andy Warhol has achieved enormous popular success and critical acclaim in art, advertising, graphics, films, records, modeling, and magazine publishing. With "America", he reveals to us all over again a country and an artist we thought we knew so well. It is Andy at his funniest and most touching; it is America with all its staggering contradictions; it is an important and beautiful new work from the twentieth century's most American artist". What more can we mere mortals add about Warhol's unsettling fame, physique, and $-obsessed black and white chronicle of post-Bicentennial American life? A brand new, most handsome example of the stated 1985 first Harper & Row paperbound edition, first printing additionally BOLDLY SIGNED "Andy Warhol" vertically across the front cover and "Rena Small / Andy Warhol" on the blank page facing the table of contents - both in heavy black marker. Rena Small is a well-known Los Angeles-based artist who photographed Andy Warhol in New York on October 30th, 1985 for inclusion in her series "Artists' Hands". That was the same day of his Rizzoli Bookstore of Soho publication party for "America" at which Warhol presented and inscribed the book to her. We subsequently acquired this directly from the artist along with the illustrated handbill for the Rizzoli event laid in.

        William Tillyer lithograph for Chicago International Art Exposition

      London: Bernard Jacobson, 1985. Single Sheet. Very Good. William Tillyer. A William Tillyer colour lithograph printed in colour on thick hand made paper. I think paper has been especially made for this edition as it is shaped for the image and has a uneven edge. This lithograph is signed in pencil by the artist and comes from a small edition size of 50 copies, this being numbered 14. This image was used for the Chicago International Art Exposition poster in 1985, which was held at Navy Pier. The lithograph was published by Bernard Jacobson Gallery, London. At present the print is framed and it has a small dampstain, not in the print, but on the backing to the far right corner. See photograph. The item will be posted out of frame unless discussed otherwise. Size 74 x 53cm In 1984, William Tillyer traveled extensively throughout South Western America making watercolours and worked on the Bridge Mesh paintings and the Esk Bridge series of etchings. It was in 1985 that Tillyer had a solo show at Roger Ramsay Gallery, Chicago.

Le due fotografie, scattate di fronte sono: - Una fotografia originale di Jean Genet condotto a Rabat nel 1985, probabilmente uno degli ultimi ritratti dello scrittore morto 14 aprile 1986 - Un ritratto fotografico originale di Luigi Diaz, internato. psichiatria, presa a Liegi nel 1984 Ritratto dello scrittore, artista, 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).

Les deux photographies, mises en regard, sont: - Une photographie originale de Jean Genet réalisée à Rabat en 1985, probablement un des derniers portraits de l'écrivain qui meurt le 14 avril 1986. - Un portrait photographique original de Louis Diaz, interné en psychiatrie, pris à Liège en 1984. Portrait d'écrivain, 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).

        ANNE FRANK: DIARY OF A YOUNG GIRL

      1985. West Hatfield, Mass.; Pennyroyal Press with Jewish Heritage Publishing, 1985. Full Morocco. Folio. [196] pages. 35 x 23 cm. Two volumes housed in linen slipcase. Het Achterhuis, the Diary of Anne Frank, with illustrations, deluxe letterpress printed edition. One of 350 numbered copies, signed by Joseph Goldyne and Barry Moser. Gray morocco by Ellenport of Boston, stamped in blind, with quarter gray morocco and linen matching chemise for the tissued plates, slipcased. 14 x 9 inches (35 x 23 cm); text volume unpaginated (with ten plates), the chemise with ten pencil signed plates. Goldyne's work comprises etching, aquatint and roulette. Anne Frank?s Diary, appearing first in Dutch as ?HET ACHTERHUIS: DAGBOEKBRIEVEN 12 JUNI 1942-1 AUGUSTUS 1944? and later in English as ?The Diary of a Young Girl,? is a work which continues to hold its place at the top of many literary lists: the most famous diary of modern times, the most famous work by a teenager, most famous work on the Holocaust, most famous 20th Century work by a Jew, etc?. Primo Levi suggested that Anne Frank is frequently identified as a single representative of the millions of people who suffered and died as she did because "One single Anne Frank moves us more than the countless others who suffered just as she did but whose faces have remained in the shadows. Perhaps it is better that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all those people, we would not be able to live." Otto Frank, Anne?s father spent the remainder of his life after publication of the Diary as custodian of his daughter's legacy, saying, "It's a strange role. In the normal family relationship, it is the child of the famous parent who has the honor and the burden of continuing the task. In my case the role is reversed." He recalled his publisher's explaining why he thought the diary has been so widely read, with the comment, "he said that the diary encompasses so many areas of life that each reader can find something that moves him personally." Simon Wiesenthal expressed a similar sentiment when he said that the diary had raised more widespread awareness of the Holocaust than had been achieved during the Nuremberg Trials, because "people identified with this child. This was the impact of the Holocaust, this was a family like my family, like your family and so you could understand this" (Wikipedia, 2012). This edition comprised a commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the death of Anne Frank. This title has sold at auction in 2007, 2009, & 2011 for over USD 1550. Subjects: World War, 1939-1945 - Jews. Frank, Anne, 1929-1945. Netherlands - History - German occupation, 1940-1945. Near Fine Condition. Beautiful and Powerful. (HOLO2-105-48)
