      Self-Published, NP 1987 - np (56pp), 27 b&w illustrations. Text in English. John Gossage's self-published "L A M F" contains twenty-seven noir-ish details of some seedier neighborhoods of Berlin and its environs photographed over three days in 1987. These views are presented as individual silver gelatin prints mounted on pages of heavy archival stock, with no two books exactly alike. Each dust jacket is a unique remnant from a German newspaper (this is from "Der Tages Spiegel") stamped L A M F in red ink and enclosed in an acetate dustwrapper. The half title page is hand lettered by the photographer on a scrap of paper tipped to the first preliminary, and there is a unique, sealed hand-written letter from Gossage posted from Berlin to himself in Washington, DC affixed to the third preliminary. A most handsome example of the exceedingly uncommon first and only edition (cited on page 148 of "From Fair to Fine 3") limited to one hundred copies BOLDLY SIGNED AND NUMBERED (56/100) in blue ink by John Gossage, as issued. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

      New York: St. Martin's Press, 1987. First Edition. New. First Printing. A Fine copy in a Near Fine, unclipped dustjacket. Very gently nudged at the crown of the jacket's spine, else Fine. This copy belonged to noted science fiction author Philip José Farmer, inscribed to him by Willeford in the year of publication: "To Philp José Farmer, All the best - Truly - Charles Willeford. Jan 20, 1987." Though nothing has been written about the relationship between the two authors, one can surmise they met through Dennis McMillan, who published both authors during the 80's. Fame came to Willeford later in his career, though by the time of this inscription, Farmer had already extablished his reputation. This is the third Hoke Moseley novel, the last title he would have done book signings for before dying in early 1988. Though generic inscriptions by WIlleford will turn up, associations like this are genuinely scarce.

        Not a First

      1987. LASKER, Jonathan. Not a First. By John Ashbery. Illustrated with three original drawings by Jonathan Lasker. Oblong folio in original gray boards and slipcase by C. Zwang. New York: Kaldewey, 1987.A rare early work combing the talents of the artist Jonathan Lasker who contributed three original drawings to each of the 45 copies, and the bookmaker Gunnar Kaldewey. The paper for this edition was made at the Kaldewey mill, especially for this edition. The entire book evokes a sense of grayness, from the binding, to the drawings and lastly in the imagery produced by the poem itself. The stark imagery of Ashbery's poem is perfectly complimented by Lasker's original harsh black, white and gray drawings. One of 45 copies, signed on the colophon by Ashbery and Lasker.

        [Chun gonghua. Album of Spring Palace Pictures]

      [n.p. (China)]. n.d.. "Accordion Chinese binding, 18.9 x 12cm., 5 double page color images on cloth backed by thick card; tan sheep covered boards slightly worn, paper title label on upper board. Some staining at edges of images caused by application of paint to edges. Very good. This album of erotic images show lovers engaged in amorous pursuits in various household settings. The female lover's bound feet are visible in many of the images. These albums of Chinese erotic images, which are often referred to as 'Spring Palace Pictures', appear to have had multiple uses. In John Byron's informative book 'Portrait of a Chinese Paradise. Erotica and Sexual Customs of the Late Qing Period' (London, 1987) it is stated that contrary to the commonly held belief that they were produced as tools of instruction, in fact, this was only one of their purposes. Interestingly these images are sometimes referred to as ""Avoid Fire Picture"" as there was, and may still be in some rural areas in China, a belief that to store such images in the roof of your house would protect the building from destruction by fire. In other words these albums were commonly believed to bring good luck. The special power of these images appears to come from their connection with fertility. Precise dating of these albums is often not possible, and it is quite likely that these images were copied from an earlier work. It is likely pre-War World II. A nice example of Chinese popular culture. Chinese erotica such as this is infrequently seen in the West and typically portray gentler, more serene scenes than those often found in its more common Japanese cousin, shunga."
