      [Great Barrington, MA]: Penmaen - Busyhaus Publications,. [1985]. Folio (38 x 28 cm). Loose sheets and bifolia laid into cloth clamshell box (42 x 35 cm) with carved wood-grained spine panel. Fine. First edition, deluxe boxed issue. Copy #5 of 250 numbered sets (200 for sale). Introduction by Leonard Baskin. Dedicatory print by Lynd Ward. Twelve artists contributed original wood-engraved self- portraits and autobiographical texts: Fred Becker, Jack Coughlin, John DePol, Fritz Eichenberg, Raymond Gloeckler, James Grashow, Judith Jaidinger, Stefan Martin, Michael McCurdy, Barry Moser, Gillian Tyler and Herbert Walker. The main illustrative component consists of the twelve original self- portrait wood engravings, each numbered and signed by the artist, plus Ward's previously unpublished wood engraving (unsigned due to his death), plus and additional suite of the engravings, with the twelve self- portraits signed (but not numbered), plus a another impression of Ward's print. The engravings were printed by Harold McGrath on two different weights of Mohawk Superfine, after which the blocks were cancelled. The original subscriber has lightly noted in pencil a typo in the colophon, and it is accompanied by several letters and prospectus/announcements documenting the long gestation period of the project. The original retail suggested price was $1600 (less to subscribers), and eventually a number of copies were offered (without the special box) at a substantially reduced price.

        Lonesome Dove

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1985. First edition of the author's Pulitzer-Prize winning novel. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Larry McMurtry on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a small closed tear. A very sharp example. A love story, an adventure, an American epic, Lonesome Dove embraces all the West- legend and fact, heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers. Set in the nineteenth century, it is the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana and much more. It is a drive that represents for everybody involved not only a daring, even a foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream- the attempt to carve out the last remaining wilderness a new life. "Everything about Lonesome Dove feels true . . . These are real people, and they are still larger than life" (Nicholas Lemann, The New York Times Book Review).

        Stiller Winkel in Traben-Trarbach, mit Wäscherinnen.

      - Aquarell über Bleistift, mit Deckweiß gehöht, auf Zeichenkarton. 22,9:23,6 cm. - Verso an den Ecken Reste einer alten Verklebung. Literatur: Jakob Fürchtegott Dielmann. Gründer der Kronberger Malerkolonie. Hrsg. von der Museumsgesellschaft Kronberg im Taunus, Frankfurt am Main 1985, Farbabb. S. 84; vgl. auch die Vorzeichnung vom 24. August 1840, abgebildet in: op. cit., S. 58. Bildmäßig ausgeführte Aquarelle mit Architekturmotiven, wie das vorliegende, sind im zeichnerischen Werk Dielmanns nicht häufig anzutreffen. Dielmann studierte unter Carl Friedrich Wendelstadt (1786-1840) am Städelschen Kunstinstitut in Frankfurt am Main und ging als Stipendiat 1835 nach Düsseldorf, wo er sich unter Johann Wilhelm Schirmer (1807-1863) als Landschaftsmaler ausbildete. Bereits ab 1837 war er Mitglied der „Meisterklasse". Durch eine Einladung von Gerhardt von Reutern (1794-1865) lernte er 1841-1842 die malerische Schwalm und damit die Willingshäuser Malerkolonie kennen. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Frankfurt war er durch die „Modernität" seiner Genre- und Landschaftsbilder Vorbild, so für Anton Burger (1824 – 1905), mit dem er 1858 die „Kronberger Malerkolonie" begründete, eine der ersten Künstlerkolonien Deutschlands.

Published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth, TX, Avedon's In the American West is widely regarded as a landmark project in photographic history. Avedon traveled throughout five years, meeting and photographing the people of the West--ranch workers, roustabouts, bar girls, drifters, gamblers, miners, wildcatters, slaughterhouse workers, and adolescents. Often mistaken as sociology, Avedon was very clear that it is entirely a fiction, his "vision" of the West. This makes the work no less stunning an achievement. See: Parr & Badger, The Photobook, Vol. 2. Due to size and weight, international and expedited shipping will be more than quoted.

        "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!" Adventures of a Curious Character

      NY: W. W. Norton & Co, 1985. PRESENTATION COPY. 1 vol., eighth printing, inscribed on the title-page "To Don Roth / Richard Feynman", hardbound, with the priced DJ, VG+/VG, with the original scarce errata slip. An uncommonly interesting association, nicely recalling the first sparks of FeynmanÆs lifelong passion for figuring out æthe way things workÆ. Don Roth (Donald J. Roth, 1931û2010) was FeynmanÆs first and closest neighbor in California: The two men shared a rented æduplexÆ at 844/6 Alameda Street in Altadena from 1953 till 1960, when Feynman married Gweneth Howarth and moved to Boulder Drive. Roth was an appliance sales and repairman by trade; and Feynman, it will be remembered, had got his start in physics in much the same way ù as a kid in Far Rockaway, repairing his neighborsÆ radios and typewriters ôby thinkingö. They must have had a lot to talk about, this repairman and the gregarious genius next door; and the two men maintained a loose acquaintance long afterwards, as the present copy attests.

        I Am an American Fighting Man [Signed by the Artist and 4 POWs]

      [U.S. Air Force Lithograph Series] [1985], [Washington, DC] - Number 36 in the U.S. Airforce Lithograph Series. Two images of an American aviator with a stylized map of Vietnam between the two. In the image on the left, the flyer is in uniform; on the right he is dressed in the garb of a POW. "I am an American fighting man" are the first words to the Code of Conduct for the U.S. Fighting Man. Much of that code of conduct concerns what his behavior will be if he becomes a prisoner of war. Number 201 of 500 (or 800 -- denominator unclear) copies signed by the artist, Jay Ashurst. The artist's printed signature is on the lithograph; the numbered edition has the actual signature in addition. This copy is also signed by four high-profile Vietnam POWs: Brigadier General Robinson "Robbie" Risner, USAF; Colonel Carlyle "Smitty" Harris, USAF; Captain Eugene "Red" McDaniel, USN; and Colonel Warren "Bob" Lilly, USAF. All four were aviators who were shot down and captured and served long terms in North Vietnamese prisons -- three of them over seven years, the fourth just under six. Despite the relatively large limitation, we have found little evidence of copies being available; a copy such as this, signed by four prominent, high-ranking former POWs, is by all appearances exceedingly scarce. The provenance and the names of the POWs have been detailed on the verso. 16" x 20". Very small, shallow stain top margin, one nick along bottom edge, else fine, in original mailing envelope that now bears a bookseller's mailing label. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
