        L'Oeil du Jazz.

      Paris: Editions Filipacchi, 1985 - Quarto. Original black cloth, title gilt to spine, pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. Top corners a little bumped, the jacket a touch used, but overall very good. Profusely illustrated from Leonard's photographs. True first edition. This copy inscribed by Leonard to French actor and film producer Claude Haymann, "A Claude Haymann En Sincère hommage, Herman Leonard", and extremely uncommon thus. On his return from the Second World War Leonard spent a year in Ottawa as apprentice to the great alchemist of photographic portraiture Yousuf Karsh. In 1948 he established himself in a small studio in Greenwich Village, and with his camera as his free ticket, he made his way into the swinging clubs of Broadway, 52nd Street and Harlem, offering to take publicity portraits of the performers in exchange for admission. While shooting at locations such as The Royal Roost and Birdland, he developed lasting friendships with some of the greats of jazz history, Miles, Bird, Diz, Lena Horne, Lady Day, the Prez, Duke Ellington and many more. His photos graced the covers of many albums produced by the great Norman Granz, also appearing in the jazz journals of record, Downbeat and Metronome. After a stint as Marlon Brando's personal photographer, Leonard settled in France and became one of the country's most in-demand fashion photographers, working for the leading couture houses, and most chic advertising agencies. It was only during a move from Paris to Ibiza in 1980 that Leonard rediscovered boxes full of his jazz negs from the 40s and 50s, a find that led to this, his first book. In the year of publication Leonard was awarded an "Honorary Masters of Science in Photography" from The Brooks Institute of Photography, he has subsequently received the "Milt Hinton Award for Excellence in Jazz Photography," from Jazz Photographer's Association, a "Lifetime Achievement Award" from Downbeat Magazine, and in 2008 the much-coveted Lucie Award for Portraiture from long-time friend Tony Bennett. The importance of Leonard's' work is probably best summed up by Quincy Jones, who said "When people think of jazz, their mental picture is likely one of Herman's".

        Signed portrait photograph.

      n.p., 1985 - 240 : 175 mm. Official German press photograph of the Chinese politician Hu Yaobang together with German Chancellor and Nobel Prize Winner Willi Brandt. Signed by both recto. - He achieved his most senior status within the Communist Party of China from 1981 to 1987, first as Party chairman from 1981 to 1982, then as General Secretary of the Communist Party from 1982 to 1987. Hu joined the Chinese Communist Party in the 1930s, and rose to prominence as a comrade of Deng Xiaoping. During the Cultural Revolution (1966–1976), Hu was purged, recalled, and purged again, following the political career of Deng.After Deng rose to power, following the death of Mao Zedong, Deng promoted Hu to a series of high political positions. Throughout the 1980s Hu pursued a series of economic and political reforms under the direction of Deng. Hu's political and economic reforms made him the enemy of several powerful Party elders, who opposed free market reforms and attempts to make China's government more transparent. When widespread student protests occurred across China in 1987, Hu's political opponents successfully blamed Hu for the disruptions, claiming that Hu's "laxness" and "bourgeois liberalization" had either led to, or worsened, the protests. Hu was forced to resign as Party general secretary, but was allowed to retain a seat in the Politburo.Hu's position as Party general secretary was taken by Zhao Ziyang, who continued many of Hu's economic and political reforms.

        ALMARIO" Edition originale de JOSE-MIGUEL ULLAN - gravures de JOAN MIRO epilogue a FUNERAL MAL - Un des prémières 35 exemplaires accompagnées d'une gravure supplementaire en couleur et signée par MIRÒ

      Paris: R.L.D. (L'Imprimerie Dutrou), 1985 - 4° (324x254mm) - Portfolio Illustrated by Mirò with 4 drypoints, one aquatint and an etching with aquatint printed in colours and signed by the artist. An extremely imaginative piece of book-making. Printed on beautiful Auvergne paper, this represents one of the rare cases where a great deal of care and imagination have clearly been lavished on the creation of the book, and it is not just a vehicle for Miró's illustrations, which certainly enhance it, but are not the only element by any means. One of 35 copies containing the signed and numbered print (etching with aquatint), which is not included in the regular edition of 90 copies. The colophon is signed by José-Miguel Ullán and stamp-signed by Miró who had died before the book was published. Original (blue) binding and slipcase. In Fine condition [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
