        Sur l'homme et le developpement de ses facultes ou Essai de physique socialeParis: Bachelier, 1835.

      First edition, and a fine copy, of Quetelet's principal work in which he presented his conception of the <i>homme moyen</i> ("average man") as the central value about which measurements of a human trait are grouped according to the normal distribution (this was the first time the normal distribution had been used other than as an error law).<br/><br/> &#10087;Stigler, The History of Statistics, 1986, Chapter 5. <br/><br/> "With Quetelet's work of 1835 a new era in statistics began. It presented a new technique of statistics, or, rather, the first technique at all. The material was thoughtfully elaborated, arranged according to certain pre-established principles, and made comparable. There were not very many statistical figures in the book, but each figure reported made sense. For every number, Quetelet tried to find the determining influences, its natural causes, and the perturbations caused by man. The work gave a description of the average man as both a static and dynamic phenomenon. <br/><br/> "This work was a tremendous achievement, but Quetelet had aimed at a much higher goal: social physics, as the subtitle of the work said; the same title under which, since 1825, Comte had taught what he later called sociology. Terms and analogies borrowed from mechanics played a great part in Quetelet's theoretical explanation. To find the laws that govern the social body, one has to do what one does in physics: to observe a large number of cases and then take averages. Quetelet's average man became a slogan in nineteenth-century discussions on social science" (DSB). <br/><br/> "Quetelet made two important advances toward the statistical analysis of social data: the first of these was formulating the concept of the average man, the second the fitting of distributions. Quetelet's first awakening to the variety of relationships latent in society may have come with his investigation of population data, but his interests soon spread. From 1827 to 1835 he examined scores of potentially meaningful relationships through the compilation of tables and the preparation of graphical displays... He examined birth and death rates by month and city, by temperature, and by time of day. He calculated the month of conception from the birth month and tried to relate it to marriage statistics. He investigated mortality by age, by profession, by locality, by season, in prisons, and in hospitals. He considered other human attributes: height, weight, growth rate, and strength. Quetelet's interests also extended to moral qualities: statistics on drunkenness, insanity, suicides, and crime. In 1835 he collected a number of earlier memoirs and added to them to form the two-volume book that was to gain him an international reputation as a social scientist: <i>Sur l'homme et le developpement de ses facultes ou Essai de physique sociale</i>. It was translated into English in 1842 as <i>A Treatise on Man and the Development of his Faculties.</i> <br/><br/> "There was no mistaking Quetelet's aim in this book: to lay the ground-work for social physics, to conduct a rigorous, quantified investigation of the laws of society that might some day stand with astronomers' achievements of the previous century. His beginning was only tentative, and he was careful (sometimes to the point of being apologetic) not to claim more success than he could defend; but he was eloquent and his zeal caught the public eye. A rare, three-part review in the <i>Athenaeum</i> concluded by remarking: 'We consider the appearance of these volumes as forming an epoch in the literary history of civilization'." (Stigler, pp. 169-70). <br/><br/> "From 1819 Quetelet lectured at the Brussels Athenaeum, military college, and museum. In 1823 he went to Paris to study astronomy, meteorology, and the management of an astronomical observatory. While there he learned probability from Joseph Fourier and, conceivably, from Pierre-Simon Laplace. Quetelet founded (1828) and directed the Royal Observatory in Brussels, served as perpetual secretary of the Belgian Royal Academy (1834-74), and organized the first International Statistical Congress (1853). For the Dutch and Belgian governments, he collected and analyzed statistics on crime, mortality, and other subjects and devised improvements in census taking. He also developed methods for simultaneous observations of astronomical, meteorological, and geodetic phenomena from scattered points throughout Europe" (Britannica). <br/><br/> Kress C.4017; DSB XI: 236-8; S. M. Stigler, <i>The History of Statistics</i>, 1986, Chapter 5..

        Twenty-Five Books From a 1986 Exhibition at the Rhode Island School of Design (Some Signed or Inscribed)

      Various: Edition Hansjorg Mayer and Others, Various. First edition. Paperback. Very Good. On May 5, 1986 an exhibition was held in Providence at the Rhode Island School of Design simply entitled Dieter Roth at The Rhode Island School of Design. Dieter had been a teacher at RISD back in 1965-66 and retained many connections with the school and its faculty. The collection offered here comes from one of the former faculty members who was a close friend of Dieter and who was given these books after the exhibition was completed. Each book has a characteristic drill hole through the entire binding near the top left hand corner of each volume. It was Dieter&#39;s practice, well-acknowledged, to hang his artist books from chains that passed through the book drillhole and were suspended from the ceiling ( See Dobke, Dieter Roth Books + Multiples, Catalogue Raisonne, pp 126 as a typical example.) We have two original annotated black and white photographs which will be included with the sale of these items. The photos were taken by the giftee at the event in 1986 and help document the provenance of this collection. The books are offered as a collection with a few exceptions which will be noted below. It is a testament to how well constructed these books are that they have survived so well the drilling process. Each volume can stand alone as a very good, complete example of each work. The process of hanging these items gives true meaning to the idea of books as art. We consider these copies to be more than just the sum of their parts, but represent multiples of Dieter&#39;s voracious output of art and artist books. While it is not known exactly how many books were hung for this exhibition, it is probable that this collection represents a substantial portion of that part of the exhibition. As such, the collection will allow the purchaser to effectively recreate a distinct and substantial portion of an entire Dieter Roth art exhibit. All of the books offered are first editions. The books are summarized here in brief with short condition notations, as needed. The collection includes the following: (1) Dieter Roth, gesammelte werke band 3 - bok 2a und bok 2b, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1973 (laminate peeling somewhat, red "x" on front endpaper likely denoting that the book was selected to be used in the exhibition), (2) Dieter Rot, gesammelte werke band 4 - bok 4a und bok 5, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1972, (3) Dieter Rot, gesammelte werke band 5 - bok 3a, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1971 (red "x" to front cover, wear near drill hole), (4) Dieter Roth, gesammelte werke band 7 - bok 3b und bok 3d, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1974, (5) Dieter Roth, gesammelte werke band 9 - stupidogramme, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1975 (some light stains to foredge, red "x" to front endpaper), (6) Dieter Rot, gesammelte werke band 11 - snow, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1970 (red "x" to front endpaper), (7) Dieter Rot, gesammelte werke band 10 - daily mirror, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1970 (red "x" to front endpaper), (8) Dieter Rot, gesammelte werke band 13 - scheisse, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1972 (red "x" to front endpaper), (9) Dieter Roth, gesammelte werke band 14 - die blaue flut, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1973 (red "x" to front endpaper, small wear near drillhole), (10) Dieter Rot, gesammelte werke band 15 - poetrie 5 bis 1, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1969 (red "x" to front endpaper), (11) Dieter Roth, gesammelte werke band 16 - Mundunculum, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1975 (red "x" to second front endpaper, tear near bottom o fdustwrapper), (12) Dieter Roth, gesammelte werke band 17 - 246 little clouds, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1976 (red "x" to front endpaper), (13) Dieter Rot, gesammelte werke band 18 - kleinere werke (1. teil), Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1971 (red "x" to front endpaper), (14) Dieter Roth, gesammelte werke band 36 - 96 piccadillies, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1977 (red "x" to front endpaper), (15) Dieter Roth, gesammelte werke band 38, Smaller Works (part 3), Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1980 (red "x" to front endpaper), (16) Dieter Roth, gesammelte werke band 40, Books and Graphics (part 2) and other stuff, Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1979, (17) Hamilton, Richard and/or Dieter Roth, Collaborations of CH.

This is Stone's Hollywood novel -- an eerie tale of an actor/screenwriter and a psychotic, drug-dependent actress, with echoes of both King Lear and Kate Chopin's The Awakening, both of which are also among the plot elements. A harsh look at the underside of Hollywood's glamour, written after Stone had had two less-than-satisfying experiences with the Hollywood adaptations of his first two books, A Hall of Mirrors and Dog Soldiers, filmed respectively as WUSA and Who'll Stop the Rain? Inscribed by Stone to another National Book Award-winning writer and his wife: "For ___ & ___ with admiration and respect -- my deepest esteem/ Robert Stone." Some dustiness and rubbing to covers, with a bit of spine-fading; very good in wrappers, in custom folding chemise and slipcase. A very nice association copy. . First Edition. Softcover.

Format oblong 24 x 32,4 cm ( 1295 gr ). ------- 216 pages avec 255 planches N&B . ************ "" Née à Munich, ayant étudié aux Beaux-Arts de Hambourg, Hanne Darboven part en 1966 pour New York et rencontre la scène minimale. Son travail quotidien d'écriture et de chiffrage sur des pages de papier millimétré se signale à Sol LeWitt, Lucy Lippard, Kasper Koenig et à Konrad Fischer, dans la galerie duquel elle a sa première exposition personnelle à Düsseldorf en 1968. La question des dates, des chiffres du quotidien et de leur fonction systémique commence là. Ce travail n'a pas véritablement changé depuis, il s'est juste étendu, amplifié, infiniment et inexorablement. Inscrivant des lignes géométriques, des suites de nombres, incorporant citations et collages sur des feuilles de papier, il a constitué à échelle de plus en plus monumentale, une méthodologie pour chiffrer et à la fois, pour rendre visible le temps: celui de l'écriture mais aussi celui de la musique, des mathématiques et d'une histoire culturelle qui déborde largement la biographie ou la situation géographique de l'artiste. Ainsi, les 2782 feuillets manuscrits ou tapés à la machine, ou encore dessinés, qui ont constitué Leben, leben/Life, living pour compter de 1900 à 1999. Ces dessins rendent ainsi visibles deux temps : celui de leur création, celui, historique, qu'ils installent ensemble dans la temporalité de l'exposition "" ************************* [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Tucson, AZ: Nazraeli Press, 2013. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Tucson, AZ: Nazraeli Press, 2013. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 54 pages. Retrospective collection of photographs. One of the most beautiful photography books of our time. Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition of 25 numbered and signed copies. Published simultaneously and should not be confused with the First Limited Edition. They have the same ISBN. An austerely elegant production by Mark Steinmetz and Chris Pichler: Oversize-volume format. Salmon cloth boards with photographic reproduction pasted on the front board&#39;s center and maroon titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and brief Introduction by Mark Steinmetz. 11 X 14 inch silver-gelatin print encased in its own protective plastic sleeve and laid into the box. Matching salmon cloth clamshell box with photographic reproduction pasted on the cover. Printed on thick, uncoated Japanese stock paper using Nazraeli Press&#39; "Daido black" patented ink to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Mark Steinmetz&#39;s homage to Paris. Yet another photography book on Paris? Yes, exquisitely so, as Steinmetz shows us his most lyrically beautiful and personal work to date. "Paris was where his mother was born and raised, giving Steinmetz a special connection to and familiarity with the city. In the streets, parks, and along the Seine, Steinmetz plays with the conventions of the Paris photographic tradition from Atget to Kertesz. The work is Classical, but with a Modern feel that both updates the tradition and follows the path Steinmetz has set with his other books" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). Steinmetz&#39;s unique affinity for children (who dominate both his "South" Trilogy and "Summertime") and birds, two of the most vulnerable living beings, is in full view here. P is for Paris, and for Mark Steinmetz, Paris = People, Place, and Pigeons. An absolute "must-have" edition for Mark Steinmetz and Paris photography book collectors. <b><i> This copy is one of the Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in the artist&#39;s black charcoal pencil on the title page by Mark Steinmetz. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It comes with an 11 X 14 inch silver-gelatin print that is encased in its own protective plastic sleeve and laid into the box. The print is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully numbered, titled, dated, and signed in pencil on verso by the photographer: "Mark Steinmetz Paris 1986 12/25". This title will become a contemporary photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Like Steinmetz&#39;s other books, its value will not only keep but go up quickly over time. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 43 duotone plates, 1 original silver-gelatin print. Mark Steinmetz&#39;s "South" Trilogy is now widely regarded as one of the greatest photographic projects of our time. One of the most brilliant living photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MARK STEINMETZ TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1590053745.

        A Perfect Spy [*SIGNED*]

      London: Hodder & Stoughton. Near Fine in Near Fine dj. 1986. 1st U.K. edition. Hardcover. 0-340-38784-X . [nice copy, with just a touch of wear to book and jacket]. SIGNED "John le Carré" on the title page, and additionally INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the dedication page, beneath the printed dedication: "and for ______, / a prince, whether / crowned or not, / and a beloved / old chum ----" / David." The most autobiographical of the author&#39;s espionage novels, following his protagonist from boyhood into his career as a spy. Personally inscribed and "double-signed" (i.e. with both names) copies of le Carré&#39;s books are uncommon. There are those who would have you believe that a merely-signed -- I will not use that f-word -- and un-inscribed copy is "more collectible" (purely a matter of opinion) and "more valuable" (utter rot). Personally I am toying with the idea of a pricing system that will charge for lengthy personal inscriptions on a pro rata per-word basis; fortunately for you, however, I have not yet worked out all the kinks of this system, and this book can still be had at its current price, which might well look like a terrific bargain in another year or so.
