      Schellmann, Munich And New York 1987 - COLOR SCREENPRINT BY ANDY WARHOL. "This print was commissioned to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the Bavarian Reinsurance Company in 1987. It is based on a photograph of Neuschwanstein Castle, a nineteenth-century palace built by King Ludwig of Bavaria in the foothills of the Alps. Today it is an extremely popular tourist attraction and is the most photographed building in Germany. It has also featured in many aspects of contemporary culture from the cover of British band's Blur's 'Country House' album to numerous computer games. Warhol's image combines a screenprinted photograph and hand-drawn lines which were also subsequently screenprinted. Through the colour combination, with the castle dramatically different from the landscape, Warhol creates a collaged effect - a characteristic of his work from the 1980s" (National Galleries of Scotland website). Color screenprint, 1987. Image size: 851x600 mm (33.5x23.63 in). Edition of 1200. With the artist's ink stamp, lower left. Printed by Rupert Jasen Smith, New York. Published by Schellmann, Munich and New York. See Feldman II.372. A spot of soiling at upper margin. A fine impression. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Portrait of Truman Capote

      1987. Original pencil drawing of Capote on white paper. Barry Moser is known for his portraits, especially those of authors. These were usually done as wood engravings, but each portrait often began as a line drawing such as this. In 1987, the same year that this portrait was done, Moser illustrated the posthumous first edition of Capote's early story I Remember Grandpa. Image measures 6 1/2 by 4 inches and is tastefully matted. Fine.

        I Want To Take Picture [SIGNED]

      Nexus Press, Atlanta 1987 - First edition, first printing. Signed with drawing (of Burke's left hand with notations) in ink by Burke verso the front free endpaper. Hardcover. Photographically illustrated laminated paper-covered boards, no dust jacket as issued. Photographs and text by Bill Burke. Unpaginated with numerous four-color and black and white plates, designed by Burke (who also made the duotone and halftone separations) while in residency at Nexus Press in 1987. 15 1/4 x 11 1/2 inches. This first edition was limited to 1000 hardbound copies. CONDITION: Near Fine (slight shelf wear, else Fine). Out of print. Extremely scarce. [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. (New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001), in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004), and in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).] Since the early 1980s, Bill Burke has photographed extensively in Southeast Asia, focusing primarily in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. Burke's haunting and layered examination of the landscape and people is informed by the collective political and social conscience galvanized by the United States' lengthy occupation and annihilation of these regions before, during, and after the Vietnam War. His lifelong desire to connect personally and viscerally to the people he meets sets his work in an altogether separate category from most artists who photograph outside their circumscribed "experience." Neither overtly political nor proscriptive, Burke's work instead recognizes the personal is indeed political. Gone are the cultural stereotypes we have long seen in images of Southeast Asia. Instead we are able to experience the intensity of the individual through Bill Burke's idiosyncratic and careful observation. He obliterates the notion that the "documentary photograph" is a vehicle for "truth" and compellingly shows the viewer that it is always a form of personal or political propaganda. 'I Want to Take Picture' (Nexus Press, 1987) is a combination artist book and 'travelogue.' It is considered by many to be one of the very best, disturbing and important books in the history of photography. From Bill Burke (1987): "Each day, I was thinking about practicality, is my pass in order, how do I get there, who do I meet that will get me through. The philosophical thoughts came later. When I realized that I had access to the camps and could see the Khmer Rouge, it was like being able to see the Devil. It seamed to be an incredible opportunity." From an interview with Bill Burke by Willis Hartshorn (New York City, June 1987): "Hartshorn: 'Do you find it problematic that in a politically savage environment your pictures are often ambiguous as to who's good and who's bad?' Burke: 'I have no problem with ambiguity. Again, all the information is filtered, everything I know about it is secondhand. I know what the refugees at the border say and what books say. I heard how bad the Khmer Rouge were, and then as I read more I found out the other people had been bad too. The people who were victims at one time were victimizing others at another time. There are two sides, the information is slanted, and it's good that people understand that. . . I would like things to be spelled out clearly so I wouldn't have to think about it. But that's not the way it is. I can't say this is this and that is that. There is no indisputable truth.'" Signed by Author [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Later Chinese Painting and Calligraphy: 1800?1950, 3 VOLS.

      Three volumes, 400+370+262 pages, large format, hardbound and slipcased, total weight about 13 kg !Western critics and historians of Chinese painting had long looked on the 19th and early 20th centuries as a sort of dead zone in the development of Chinese art, attributing the work of more modern Chinese masters to a burst of creativity inspired by the "eccentrics" of the 17th and 18th centuries. Maverick collector Robert H. Ellsworth revealed the error of this assumption when he acquired a number of brilliant 19th-century Chinese paintings in the 1960s. What he discerned was a period of enormous change and innovation, influenced both by a major shift in Chinese art toward calligraphy and seals (prompting more brutal, energetic brushwork) and by increasing exposure to the West; clearly, Ellsworth argues, these 19th-century paintings were the true precedents for modern Chinese art. This three-volume catalog is a singular exploration of this unjustly overlooked era and is a superb example of the bookbinder's art in its own right, originally priced at USD 850. It beautifully reproduces all 471 paintings Ellsworth donated to the Metropolitan Museum of Art as of 1987, along with hundreds of images of calligraphic scrolls and fans. The index volume contains commentaries and biographies of 300 artists and calligraphers, along with transliterations into Chinese script of every inscription and seal. The three volumes are bound in silk, with embossed gold stamping, petite Chinese calligraphic scrolls applied to the covers, and gilt-edged pages, all enclosed in a similarly decorated clamshell case in brown silk.FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE; a surcharge applies only for USA and Canada.==============================================================

        American Prospects

      Times Books in association with the Museum of Fine Arts Houston Texas, New York 1987 - FIRST EDITION of Sternfeld's first and most celebrated photobook, illustrated with fifty-five color photographs. "Joel Sternfeld travelled the country for around eight years with a 8x10 view camera and colour film, a sojourn that produced his first and best-known book, American Prospects. The particular quality brought by Sternfeld to the 8x10 colour-landscape aesthetic. is a clear sense of narrative. In American Prospects, each picture suggests an arcane drama being played out-an elephant stranded on a road in Oregon, or a pumpkin stall in Virginia behind which a house burns fiercely. These narrative hints are suggestive, sly, often ironic, frequently mysterious, making American Prospects less a series of photographs than a series of tales-unfinished, elliptical certainly-that add up to a cogent and persuasive view of America." (Parr/Badger, The Photobook). Roth 260. New York: Times Books, in association with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, 1987. Oblong quarto (255x302mm), original gray cloth, original photographic dust jacket. A hint of bowing to boards, otherwise book and dust jacket fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

TOGETHER WITH TWO TWO-SIDED AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED AND FOUR AUTOGRAPH POSTCARDS FROM BALLARD TO RYDER. The letters are very interesting and also personal, for example he tells Angharad to be selective in her small safari through his novels, ".there's a pretty clear spectrum running from the visionary & idealistic (Crystal World and Unlimited Dream Co) to more or less out and out porn, as in Crash - though to me that's my most idealistic book of all." He talks about the part-autobiographical nature of "Empire" and how his experiences in the camps changed him, ".in the sense of reducing the moral authority of the received world to nil, and placing immense value on the power of the imagination to remake everything - rather psychotic really." And also, "Latin? My first love (a school in the late 40's we even attempted Latin conversation - heroically pointless)". The other letter covers flying lessons, writers on flying and how learning to fly can signal a life about to change. He manages in both the letters and the postcards to be inspiring and present fresh ideas and his passion for life as he does in all his work. The book is fine in wrapper. The dedication states, "For Angharad, 'The aeroplane has unveiled for us the true face of the earth' - St. Ex All the best JG Ballard [two dots and a flourish]" [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
