      (GOSSAGE, JOHN). Gossage, John. JOHN GOSSAGE: L A M F (LIKE A MOTHER FUCKER - THREE DAYS IN BERLIN) - SIGNED LIMITED EDITION WITH TWENTY-SEVEN ORIGINAL SILVER GELATIN PRINTS. Signed and Numbered with Original Photographs. NP: Self-Published, 1987. First Edition 1/100. 8vo. Cloth in Newsprint Dust Jacket. Photography Monograph. Fine/Fine. 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.

        The Andy Book

      Tokyo: Doeisha, 1987. First Edition. Softcover.. Fine. 4to, Unpaginated. French fold wraps as issued. Numerous Black & White plates. Text in English, with Japanese translation booklet laid in. One of the best copies I've come across, super clean and almost perfect. More images available on request. Scarce. One of the great Weber books. His profile of smalltown hero and featherwight champion Andy Minsker (who also modelled for Calvin Klein and things) somehow sums up everything he does i.e. casual male glamour. The pictures and brilliant, and the book is an excellent complete work.

        The Neon Rain

      Henry Holt|~| NY: Henry Holt. (1987). The uncorrected proof copy of the first book in the acclaimed and award-winning Dave Robicheaux mystery series. Signed by the author, twice, on two different occasions, or at least in two different pens: the proof has a half title both preceding and following the title page, and it would have been easy to flip the proof open and assume it to be unsigned. Staple at two outer corners; minor vertical crease and mild sunning to covers; near fine in wrappers. Publication date of March 27, '87 written across the bottom front cover. The Robicheaux series has been acclaimed as the most literary series of its kind; its location, New Iberia, Louisiana, plays an important role in the books, both in terms of its geography and its history, politics and culture. The Robicheaux character is a Vietnam vet and a recovering alcoholic, and the series is steeped in unremitting violence. Burke has won two Edgar Awards, one of them for Black Cherry Blues, the third Robicheaux book. This, the proof of the author's breakthrough book, is scarce, especially signed. . First Edition. Softcover.

        A portrait in oil on board, SIZE: 30 inches x 22.5 inches, showing BRIAN COOK [BATSFORD] in a [? his] library, the artist T[HELMA] BURRELL, signed lower right, undated.

      - In very good condition apart from a few minor scuffs and scratches. *THELMA BURRELL is recorded as having had an exhibition of her work at the Sue Rankin Gallery, London, in 1987. A Prospectus for the exhibition is in the Courtauld Institute Library. The portrait appears to have been done from life and has a great deal of personality. The National Portrait Gallery has a few photographs of Brian Cook though no painted portrait. SIR BRIAN CALDWELL COOK BATSFORD [1910-1991] was painter, designer, publisher and Conservative Party politician. He was nephew to Harry Batsford, the publisher, and adopted his mother's maiden name in 1946. He began to paint whilst at school and in 1928 started to work for the production department of his uncle's firm, B.T. Batsford. His first dust jacket design was for The Villages of England (1932) when he was 21 years of age. He became chairman of Batsford, from 1952 until 1974 and was artist-designer of the range of Batsford books from the 1930s through to the 1950s. The distinctive, somewhat startling, colours and flat perspectives produced images much admired and collected today. Cook also attended to other features of the dust jacket such as the quality of the paper and chose a rough textured paper that did not slip from the book or the hand, as had been the case with earlier Batsford titles. He also painted images that wrapped around the entire jacket; the old Batsford jackets had an illustration on the front but the rear panel was blank and quickly became grubby. SEE also : G.
