Haworthia is a large genus of small succulent plants endemic to Southern Africa (Mozambique, Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland, South Africa). Like the Aloes, they are members of the subfamily Asphodeloideae and they generally resemble miniature aloes, except in their flowers, which are distinctive in appearance. Horticulturally they are popular garden and container plants (from Wiki). This is an important taxonomic revision of the genus Haworthia that was named after Adrian H. Haworth who was an English entomologist, botanist and crustacean expert. This very rare offering is finely bound in attractive dark green morocco that is housed in a custom slipcase.

        Les Immatériaux

      CENTRE POMPIDOU, Paris 1985 - 2 volums in 8. Soft binding under silver plastic blisters .Catalogsfor an Exhibition held at Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris on 28 March - 15 July 1985. Curated by Jean-François Lyotard and Thierry Chaput. "Les Immatériaux" roughly translates to "the immaterials" or "the non-materials." These materials are new in that they newly challenge our relationship to the world, whether through the dehumanization of technology or by the faltering of man's mastery over nature. And so the exhibition was filled with computers (often malfunctioning), but also artificial skin, Kevlar, and works by artists including Giovanni Anselmo, Daniel Buren, and Dan Flavin. The experience was intended to be full of slippages, a bewildering dramatization of what the profound uncertainty of our contemporaneity feels like. The critics hardly warmed to such a chaotic atmosphere, yet artists who saw the show felt quite differently. "What I think was really beautiful in 'Les Immatériaux,'" Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster recalled, "was the exploration of all the dimensions of light and sound by means of infrared and text. The viewer's movement was taken fully into consideration." For Philippe Parreno, "'Les Immatériaux' was an exhibition producing ideas through the display of objects in a space." Rare set of the 2 volums under non open blisters .

        PHOTOGRAPH ARCHIVE Of NAVY DIVE TRAINING, RESEARCH And SALVAGE OPERATIONS, 1944 - 1985

      1985. Light general wear from storage, faint musty odor. Photos clean and well-developed overall. VG - Nr Fine.. Over 320 photographs (most b/w, some color), plus numerous contact sheets and negatives. Majority of photos ~ 8" x 10"; some ~3" x 5" A large archive of loose photographs, documenting USN dive training, salvage operations, and submarine / underwater expeditions & experiments primarily between 1965 and 1985; a handful of photographs are dated earlier, though several these are likely later duplicates from older negatives. The archive is made up of several collections pertaining to particular operations/ experiments, which bear captions (stamped on the verso of each photograph, or, in a small number of cases, typed on a slip of paper which has been affixed to the verso or stapled to the foot of the image), as well as many training and/or uncaptioned images. The main collections within the archive consist of: - 40 photos the salvage operation of HQ480, a VNR water barge that sank in Saigon Bay in 1969, plus an additional 7 photos of Vietnam-related salvops, 1966 - 1970; these photographs are numbered on the verso, and appear to be part of a larger series of 80+ photos of this operation. - 59 photos of the salvage operation of the USS Guitarro SSN-665, a Sturgeon-class submarine that sank during construction in the Mare Island Naval Shipyard at Vallejo, CA, in 1969, earning it the nickname "Mare Island Mud Puppy" and requiring over $15 million in repairs. (Wiki) - 13 photos of Sealab II, an underwater research habitat off the coast of La Jolla, CA, including photos of astronaut/ argonaut Commander M. Scott Carpenter. - 11 photos of the USS Nautilus, the first operational nuclear-powered submarine in the world, including preparations for its dive underneath the North Pole and its christening by Mamie Eisenhower in January of 1954; many, if not most of these, appear to be later duplicates from the original negatives. Additional photographs of special note include five stamped "Amphibious Training Command," dated Nov. 14, 1944; three of Captain Searle explaining the Navy's procedures for a proposed Smithsonian-headed project to salvage the USS Tecumseh (sunk in Mobile Bay during the Civil War) that never went forward; an underwater demolotion team that "assisted the Arctic Expedition in resupplying the DEW line"; an aerial view of the first fleet review in Long Beach, CA (1956); and a practice exercise for Apollo 8 (1968). A large assortment of training photos -- students swimming, undergoing psychological testing, learning rescue techniques, and more -- equipment, and various other photographs round out the archive. The photographs range from being overtly posed (the training pictures, in particular) to being documentary accounts of sailors at various tasks and instances of damage/buckling to the salvaged ships. Scenes range: sailors on deck, underwater (training and during operations), and at rest; demonstrating particular equipment; images of the ships and equipment; etc. A significant proportion are official photos and marked as such, though many are not marked as having been released for publication. Numerous contact sheets, large negatives, and sheets of negatives accompany the photos. Overall, an interesting collection, visually documenting post-war training and the changing nature of the US Navy's underwater and salvage operations over the course of forty years, with a heavy concentration during the 1960s and early 1970s.
