        ARCHIVE consisting of 1 AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) and 4 TYPED LETTERS SIGNED (TLSs) to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan

      1985-1996 1985 - Interesting group of letters between these two famous Irish Americans, all SIGNED as "Bill." In the earliest letter, Kennedy remarks about a speech by Moyniham on the Harriman legacy: "I note in the speech you call me 'incorrigible' which delights me. I was relatively new to reporting when Harriman was governor, covered him a few times but was very remote from politics, far more interested in interviewing gamblers, winos, war heroes, and Louis Armstrong. I loved your stories about Albany politics when we talked." In other letters, Kennedy discusses details of the movie version of IRONWEED, inviting Moynihan to its world premiere in Albany, and work on his new novel. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

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 .
