        Baltasar and Blimunda.

      New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Publishers, 1987. First American edition of Saramago's first book to be translated into English. Octavo, original cloth. Signed and dated by the author on the title page, "Jose Saramago 1.2006." Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket art by Giotto. Translated from the Portuguese by Giovanni Pontiero. The New York Times Book Review has said that Baltasar and Blimunda "[m]uch reverberates in memory after reading this enchanting novel, but most of all the love story which soars over the rest of the action like a flute above a heavy orchestra. Mr. Saramago, a writer of sharp intelligence, keeps this love story under strict control, free of pathos or sentimentality. It is of, and on, the earth." Indeed, "Saramago has produced a novel that is deeply imbedded in the history of his land yet moves in mystical realms. It is a romance and an adventure, a rumination on royalty and religion in 18th century Portugal and a bitterly ironic comment on the uses of power" (Walter Goodman, The New York Times).

        Portrait de Paule Thévenin. Photographie Originale de l'artiste

      Par l'auteur 1987 - - Par l'auteur, s.l. 1987, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, une feuille. - Grand portrait photographique original en noir et blanc réalisé par Marc Trivier. Tirage argentique original non signé, comme la plupart des œuvres de Trivier. Précieuse épreuve argentique originale du célèbre photographe belge, un des artistes contemporains les plus secrets, qui malgré un succès international précoce, a préféré limiter sa production pour conserver la cohérence de son œuvre. Marc Trivier ne tire pas de nouveaux exemplaires de ses anciens portraits, le papier de tirage qu'il utilisait n'est d'ailleurs plus commercialisé. L'artiste « réalise lui-même ses tirages sur papier baryté Ilford, consacrant plusieurs jours de travail à chacun, avec une concentration particulière pour rendre les blancs, par contraste avec des noirs d'une rare densité. Un tirage de Marc Trivier ne ressemble à aucun autre. Lorsqu'il accepte de les exposer, il les suspend dans des cadres en inox de sa fabrication, laissant libre cours à la vie du papier. » (Xavier-Gilles, « Marc Trivier et la tragédie de la lumière » in Le Monde Libertaire, 2011). Cette « vie du papier » participe de l'œuvre au même titre que les diverses altérations que subissent les photographies lorsqu'elles sont exposées : « Dans les boites, les tirages gondolent, mais qu'importe : le photographe affectionne ce genre d'accident. » (Claire Guillot, « Les face à face sans échappatoire du photographe Marc Trivier », Le Monde, 2011). Marc Trivier a une sensibilité particulière pour l'aspect matériel de ses productions. Alors que la photographie relève par essence du multiple, cette intervention de l'artiste dans tout le processus de création confère une aura autographique à ces tirages. Photographies d'artistes, de fous, d'arbres ou d'abattoirs, Marc Trivier aborde tous ces sujets avec un regard aussi précis qu'intense. « Dans sa cosmogonie, chaque chose, chaque être, végétal, animal ou humain, mérite le même respect. Car tous sont confrontés à la même loi d'airain : la solitude. » (Luc Desbenoit). La beauté qui émane de ses photos vient de cette nudité. Il n'y a ni retouches, ni recadrages. On retrouve dans son œuvre le même format carré souligné par le carré du négatif que Trivier laisse sur ses tirages. Ce cadre piège notre regard dans des photographies où le fard de la couleur est rejeté pour un noir et blanc incisif. Toute artificialité ayant disparu nous ne faisons pas face à la mise en scène d'un sujet mais à une présence exacerbée par la lumière irradiante et singulière, témoin d'un instant de vie et non de pose. C'est cette lumière, liée au médium photographique, qui unit les séries de Marc Trivier : « Les photographies de Marc Trivier écrivent une tragédie de la lumière, celle-ci n'accueillant les êtres - hommes, arbres ou bêtes - qu'en les brûlant, avant disparition. » (Xavier-Gilles in Le Monde Libertaire). C'est aussi elle, délivrée de tous les artifices, qui donne à ses œuvres l'aura qui les rend si présentes. Cette « brûlure » de la lumière nous renvoie à un instant réel, au « ça a été » de Barthes (La Chambre Claire, 1980) : « De trente-cinq ans de pratique photographique, d'obsessions, c'est peut-être ça qui reste : un mode d'enregistrement singulier de la brûlure de la lumière, décliné d'une image à l'autre, en une succession de propositions qui se ressemblent et pourtant chacune est aussi singulière que la fraction de temps auquel elle renvoie. » (Marc Trivier). « La photographie ne dit qu'une chose : « C'était. » On ne fixe que ce qui a été. S'il y a une tragédie, elle est là. » (Marc Trivier) Warhol, Foucault, Beckett, Dubuffet . les plus grands écrivains et artistes ont posés pour Trivier. Simultanément l'artiste s'intéressent également aux marges de la société, à ce que les hommes ne veulent pas voir. Il photographie alors les aliénés et les abattoirs qu'il place en regard des célébrités. Dès la fin des années 1980 son œuvre est unanimement reconnue et il reçoit le prestigieux [Attributes: First Edition]

        Aid & Comfort: The Artists Portfolio

      San Francisco, 1987. Fine. One of 500 copies. Scarce. This is the first and only edition of this artists portfolio that was conceived as an additional fundraising effort to supplement a benefit dinner performance held June 8, 1987 to raise money for people fighting AIDS. The initial effort was spearheaded by a group of San Francisco restauranteurs. The portfolio drew upon the talents of artists, writers, and printers. Fine artists selected current works to be reproduced. Restaurants contributed recipes, and food writers also contributed recipes and essays. The result was the production of twenty-three stunning broadsides. They delight with their diversity and fine printing. Among the well-known restaurants of the time participating were Campton Place, Chez Panisse, China Moon Cafe, Fog City Diner, Greens at Fort Mason, Square One, Stars, and the Zuni Cafe. Food writers included Diana Kennedy, James Beard, M.F.K. Fisher, Richard Olney, and Calvin Trillin. Printers included Arion Press, Matrix Press, Moving Parts Press, Stinehour, Peter Koch, and the Artichoke Press. All of the work was donated. This portfolio includes four pages of preliminaries, the 23 broadsides, and 10 color reproductions on glossy paper of art work by contemporary artists. Housed in a stiff red paper portfolio with printed spine label. All in fine condition. 9 x 13.25 inches. PRI/111517.

        Portrait de Paule Thévenin. 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.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.

This edition contains a special introduction by L'Engle, in which she relays the constant rejection of her manuscript for the book and the many challenges it took to get it published. She concludes that "The problem wasn't that it was too difficult for children. It was too difficult for adults."

        The Tommyknockers

      New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, (1987). First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. 558 pages. One of the few sci-fi novels by King, which imagines the discovery of an alien spacecraft near a small Maine town. First edition (first printing). Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Small nick to front lower covers. Inscribed by the author to the evolutionary paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould: 'For Steve and Deborah and the boys--Hope you like this, Steve--you'll see you're acknowledged--for The Flamingo's Smile--on the acknowledgement page. Wonderful book, and one that had a real impact on the rewrite. We hope to see you soon-- All the best, Steve King. 12/11/87.' The acknowledgements read, 'I'm also grateful to Stephen Jay Gould. Although he is a Yankees fan and thus not entirely to be trusted, his comment on the possibilities of what I'd call 'dumb evolution' helped shape the redraft of this novel (e.g. The Flamingo's Smile).' In Gould's book, Wonderful Life, he refers to The Tommyknockers as 'fractur[ing] a tradition in science fiction by treating extraterrestrial 'higher intelligences' not as superior in general...but merely as quirky hangers-on...' An extraordinary association copy.
