        Live Aid. Bob Geldof & Paula Yates take a well-deserved break. 10/06/1985.

      745 x 520mm. Giclée Print using Archival pigment inks on Hahnemüle Fine Art Pearl 285gsm paper. Limited edition of 10 numbered copies signed by the photographer. Alan Davidson is a press photographer based in London for more than 30 years, Alan has photographed the rich, the famous, the before-they-were-famous to those that have fallen from grace. Going through his vast archive, with new treasures found within the old brown manilla envelopes, reads like a who's who of the great and good (and the very bad) of London society. Cinema stars rub shoulders with pop stars, royalty with politicians. Working from the late 1960s to the present day Alan remembers the days before celebrities became surrounded by 30 young publicists and before there were 50 photographers at every event you went to, allowing him to take intimate and relaxed portraits, unlike the anodyne syndicated press shots of today.

        La Basílica. (Collage de imágenes y de palabras).

      1985 - Sao Paulo, Edición del autor - Edicoes Exu, 1985. In-8º mayor.- 149 (1 bl.) p.- Texto e ilustraciones del artista.- Rústica de editor anillada.- Ejemplar nº 214, de una tirada única de 400 numerados e inicialados por el autor.- RARO. Un tema recurrente en la obra de León Ferrari es el cuestionamiento y la crítica de la ideología cristiana, vinculada, paradójicamente, con los aspectos más oscuros y dramáticos de la civilización occidental. La práctica del collage, mediante el procedimiento relativamente simple pero de contundente eficacia, de superponer imágenes contradictorias, de un anacronismo revelador, define un amplio sector de su obra. En "La Basílica" este procedimiento gráfico se extiende al collage de textos, para crear una compleja estructura operística de profunda intención crítica y sarcástica.

        Cambalache al Dia. Year I, No. 1 (October 1985) through Year I, No. 11 (September/October 1986) (all published)

      A complete run in 11 issues of the Argentinian left-wing political and social journal, each issue approx. 16 pp., under the editorial direction of Alberto Parapugna, focusing on the democratization process in Argentina, each issue with a specific subtitle, including "Mientras Dure la Mentira", "Un País sin Ideas", "La Industria del Secuestro", "Vocacion de Grandeza", "¡Falsos Testigos!", "Entre la Hipocresía y lo Irónico", and "Crisis Total". Scattered illustrations. Small folio. Orig. pictorial self-wrpps. Buenos Aires 1985-1986. The Argentine military seized political power in a coup in March 1976, after the death of President Juan Domingo Perón, and ruled Argentina under a military dictatorship from 1976 to 1983. It was known as "la última junta militar" or "el Proceso de Reorganización Nacional". This dictatorship continued the "Dirty War", a period of state terrorism from 1974 to 1983 during which an estimated 30,000 guerrillas, dissidents, and suspected socialists disappeared. In February 1983, Buenos Aires Police Chief Ramón Camps publicly recognized the crime and acknowledged that the "disappeared" were actually dead. On June 18, 1982, the resignation of the regime's third dictator, General Leopoldo Galtieri, was called for, and a general election was held on October 30, 1983, with an incredible voter turnout of 85.6% to elect the new Argentinian president, governors, mayors, and other legislators. Very scarce; as of June 2017, WorldCat locates only one holding in a North American institution.

        Portrait de Jean Genet. Photographie Originale de l'artiste

      Large original photographic portrait in black and white directed and shot by Marc Trivier.Unsigned silver print, like most of Trivier's works. Unique proof drawn by the artist.Small tear on the upper edge and stain on the white part of the photograph.Photographs of artists, madmen, trees or slaughterhouses, Marc Trivier approaches all these subjects with a look as precise as intense."In its cosmogony, every thing, every being, vegetable, animal or human, deserves the same respect. For all are confronted with the same law of brass: loneliness. (Luc Desbenoit)The beauty that emanates from his photos comes from this nudity. There is no editing or cropping. We find in his work the same square format that traps our eyes in photographs where the makeup of color is rejected for an incisive black and white. Since all artificiality has disappeared, we are not dealing with the staging of a subject but with a presence exacerbated by the radiant and singular light, witness of a moment of life and not of pose. It is this light, linked to and obsessed with Trivier's medium, that gives his works the aura that makes them so present:"Of thirty-five years of photographic practice, of obsessions, it is perhaps that which remains: a singular mode of recording of the burning of light, declined from one image to another, in a succession propositions that are similar and yet each is as singular as the fraction of time to which it refers. (Marc Trivier)Taken from the front, with a look at the subject directed towards the lens, the photographs that Marc Trivier realizes personalities of the 1980s are not those of a star portraitist, but result on the contrary from a desire to desacralize:"Instead of being a portraitist of writers and artists among many others, he is marginalized by his device: under the pretext of adjustments, he makes his models wait, he makes them ask several minutes which gives them a weary air. He may be waiting for a more natural behavior. And we find ourselves facing Francis Bacon in precarious balance, Samuel Beckett, Jean Dubuffet or Michel Foucault more or less packed in their chair. Intimate images. ". (A picture of tifoxing Marc Trivier, S. Rousselle-Tellier, in Marges, 2004)Photographed in their personal universe, most of the time their room, the subjects surrender themselves, no longer master their image. The imbalance that results reveals the fragility of these strong personalities, and allows Trivier to restore the unity of the intimate body and the public work."I read Genet; for me Genet, it was letters on a book. And then one day I saw his portrait, it was like a fracture. How was it possible that these signs are also someone? To make a portrait is to tie up the name and the face. (Marc Trivier)Warhol, Foucault, Beckett, Dubuffet ... the greatest writers and artists have posed for Trivier. At the same time, the artist is also interested in the margins of society, which men do not want to see. He then photographs the lunatics and slaughterhouses he places next to celebrities. By the end of the 1980s his work was unanimously recognized and he received the prestigious Young Photographer Award from the International Center of Photography in 1988 as well as the Prix Photographie Ouverte (Charleroi). After the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne, the Casino in Luxembourg, the European House of Photography in Paris devotes a major retrospective to him in 2011.

        Decor puellarum.[Paris, ca. 1740]. 4to (23.5 x 18 cm). Manuscript in Italian written in black ink on laid paper. Loose quires, never sewn or bound.

      - Cf. P. Allen, The concept of women, p. 659; M. Lowry, "Humanism and anti-Semitism in Venice: the strange story of 'Decor puellarum'", in: Bibliofilia LXXXVII (1985/86), pp. 39-54. A mid-18th-century manuscript transcription of the first (1471) edition, in the original Italian, of an anonymous work about the customs, habits and proper behaviour of young women and addressed directly to them. That edition, printed by Nicolas Jenson in Venice and dated "1461", but actually printed in 1471, was thought to be the first book printed in Italy until Claude Gros de Boze (1680-1753) showed in 1743 that the printed date in the colophon (MCCCCLXI) is incorrect and should have included a second X. The present manuscript copy was probably made in Paris when Jenson's edition was still thought to be the first book printed in Italy. The topics covered in the text, according to its own chapter headings (following Allen's translation), are: the appropriate and necessary goodness of the wise and most prudent maiden; the virtues that are proper for you; the order of life that you must preserve; the manner of beautiful dress; honest loves and holy desires; and lofty thoughts and devoted recommendations and contemplations, from the creation of the world to the final judgement. Even after De Boze proved the 1461 erroneous, the Decor puellarum remained one of the most sought after incunabula, both as one of Jenson's earliest productions and for its important text, whose author remains unidentified.With the first leaf foxed, but otherwise in fine condition and with large margins, with only an occasional very minor spot.

        The Fall of the House of Usher

      New York: The Limited Editions Club , 1985. Limited Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Publishers clam shell box. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. Alice Neel. In describing this masterwork of literature, printing and illustration, I will try to describe the illustrator the late Alice Neel as opposed to the famous author Edgar Allan Poe. Edgar Allan poe considered a dead woman an artistic necessity. The death of a beautiful woman served as an inspiration of art itself. Like Poe, Alice Neel died before her brilliance as an artist was fully appreciated by the public in general. Before she died she picked out the illustrations for this book from her personal collection. . There are two color illustrations, the first, is Alice neel's 'Nadja' which represents Poe's Madeline sister of Roderick who is also her "husband and father" as she is his " wife and mother" is both startling and chilling chosen from the personal collection of Neels as was the second 'Requiem". There are two pen and inc, the second a self portrait of a dying artist, frank and remarkably honest . Not unlike a death mask. Alice Neel had begun to develop her ideas fro The Fall of the House of Usher in sketches in the late summer and early fall if 1984. By the time she returned from her summer home in New Jersey her illness-cancer- had progressed to the stage where she was forced to spend most of her time in bed. Shortly before her death in October Neel gave her approval and encouragement to the illustrations selected for the book. 1500 copies of this edition were printed by the Anthoensen Press. The book was designed by ben shiff and was hand set in monotype Dante by Michael and Winifred Bixler, the paper used is mould-made by Cartiere Enrico Magnani. The etchings and lithographs were printed by the water street press, Ltd and bound by John Isakovics. The exquisite side papers on the front and back covers of the book were individually marbled by faith Harrison of Woodstock Connecticut. Harrison used five colors marbled in a turkish stone pattern to achieve the delicate web like effect on the covers, which has been echoed in blood-red Nigerian goat-skin on the fore edges and spine. The book is housed in a fine clam shell box with red velvet lining and bound in black cloth over boards. There is a fine leather label with gilt lettering and border on front. A wonderful collectible and homage to the late great Alice Neel. Book is SIGNED by Raphael Soyer who penned a short biography of Neel for the book and " allegedly" SIGNED by Neel. This is #539, which is an early copy. I would like to think this is her signature, and it may well be, but she died before the book was put together. For the sake of disclosure, this is what I think. Still and all, this book is a treasure for any collection.
