        Waffenruhe. Berlinische Galerie Fotografische Sammlung.

      Berlin, Dirk Nishen Verlag 1987.. 40 Blätter (eines davon eine Falttafel) mit 39 meist ganzseitigen schwarzweißen Abbildungen. Original-englische Broschur mit allseitig bedrucktem und beidseitig illustriertem Original-Schutzumschlag. (30 x 26,7 cm) 4°.. - "... a European appropriation of an American vocabulary ..." (Badger a.a.O.) Vielleicht das amerikanischste deutsche Photobuch ... Kreuzberg und die "Mauer" vor dem 9. November 1989 - Parr/ Badger II, 65. Roth, The Open Book 336. Auer 673. "Die Lithos fertigte O. R. T. Kirchner + Graser, Berlin. Gesetzt aus der Walbaum Standard von Typologika Fotosatz GmbH, Berlin. Gedruckt bei Heenemann, Berlin. ... Die Aufnahmen entstanden in der Zeit von 1985-87." Mit minimalen Alters- und Gebrauchsspuren, die Ecken ganz leicht berieben und die untere hintere minimal verknickt. Gerry Badger schrieb bereits 1987 in einer Rezension über "Waffenruhe" in "Creative Camera": "... Schmidt confirms that photography certainly can be enough, a medium rich in allusion, visual surprise, and narrative quality when utilised by an intelligent mind's eye. .... Michael Schmidt has created a fetid poetry and an introspective gloom. This derives formally from the likes of Lewis Baltz and John Gossage - especially Gossage - but exudes a rhapsodic intensity of its own that marks it immediately as a European appropriation of an American vocabulary. Certainly, the pain and sense of loss running through the whole book like a subliminal subtext would seem to be as much personal as historical, as eschatological as phenomenal, as much diary as report. Waffenruhe is a subjective, deeply felt work, elegiac and bitter by turns. This is confirmed by the book's oblique, stream-of-consciousness text, and the bleak portraits of the photographer's daughters, even of himself in the final frame, the very picture of a somewhat inebriated, German Dylan Thomas, and sharing that artist's acute sense of the poetry of things, the fresh slant upon the apparently simple and obvious. As Janos Frecot writes in his brief afterword, Waffenruhe is not directly a book about Berlin, but a book that could have only been inspired by Berlin, a cri-de-coeur that could have emanated only from a Berliner." Vergl. online hier: h t t p : / / w w w .gerrybadger . c o m /another-brick-in-the-wall-michael-schmidts-waffenruhe/ Die Erzählung "Waffenruhe" hier im Erstdruck, Schleef erhielt dafür 1989 den Alfred-Döblin-Preis und erweiterte sie zum endgültigen Text "Zigaretten", der 1998 bei Suhrkamp veröffentlicht wurde und 2003 von Armin Petras für die Bühne bearbeitet in Mannheim uraufgeführt wurde. Janos Frecot im Nachwort: "Kein Buch über Berlin, aber eine Arbeit, die so nur in Berlin gesehen, erlebt, fotografiert und geschrieben werden kann." * Zahlung mit VISA/ MASTERCARD möglich.

        MAC

      Kickshaw Press, Paris 1987 - One of 40 copies.Slipcase with closure made in polycarbonate, lined in velour, and airbrushed with automotive paint. Created by Sonya Sheats. 20 x 19.5 cmBeckett wrote Mercier et Camier in French in 1946, but refused to publish it until 1970. It wasn't until 1974 that an edition in English was published. While translating the novel from French to English, Beckett made substantial deletions and changes. This small edition consists of the passages Beckett eliminated from Mercier and Camier when he translated it from the original French to into English.Sonya began her binding studies in the studio of Anne Vion in France in 2000. She has been practicing and teaching bookbinding ever since, returning to France frequently to study with master binders, including Edgard Claes, Sün Evrard, Michel Richard, and Florent Rousseau. Sonya works with unusual leathers, wood, and polycarbonate as well as more traditional materials and structures. Her art ranges from minimalist leather bindings in muted hues to raucous colors and designs rendered on polycarbonate using automotive paint. No matter what material or structure, Sonya’s craftsmanship and sense of style shine. Sonya’s work can be found in private collections in the United States and Europe. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Self-Published, NP 1987 - np (56pp), 27 b&w illustrations. Text in English.

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.

        SIDESWIPE - INSCRIBED TO PHILIP JOSÉ FARMER

      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

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, 16.6 x 14.5cm., 12 color paintings on cloth backed by thick card; sheep covered boards, paper title label on upper board. Some staining at edges and gutter caused by application of paint to edges. Very good. This album of erotic images show lovers engaged in amorous pursuits with the background detail of the surrounding garden or interior attractively rendered. The female lover's bound feet are visible in some 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. This example appears to date from the late Qing or Republic Period, and it is quite likely that these images were copied from an earlier work. 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."
