        American Prospects

      New York: Times Books in association with the Museum of Fine Arts Houston Texas. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 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.

        Epiphanies. Interpreted by Susan Weil and Marjorie Van Dyke

      New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Company. 1987. One of 65 copies only, 50 in the edition for sale and 15 Artist&#39;s Proofs, all on Moulin du Gue paper and Japanese papers, with 62 etchings, employing over 150 plates, original watercolors, collage and hand cutting.

Lithographs editioned by Marjorie Van Dyke with Rhae Burden. Calligraphy by Jerry Kelly. Letterpress by Dan Keleher and Bruce Chandler at Wild Carrot Letterpress in 40 colors. Type set by Dan Carr and Julia Ferrari at the Golgonooza Letter Foundry. Page size: 12 x 14 inches; 94 leaves, 3 of which are double folds, one printed page loose as insert (Dreams section), two fold-out images (Death section). & Bound: loose as issued in original wrappers in hand-made box by David Bourbeau at The Thistle Bindery in Japanese hand-made silk woven for this box, with incised line of Japanese tea paper showing profile of Joyce, spine of box slightly sunned, book fine.& Joyce&#39;s EPIPHANIES, the writings in his early notebooks that are the basis for the rest of his great works and which have never been published before. The EPIPHANIES are astonishing fragments of dreams, overheard conversations, and particles of experiences. In making the book, the artists and publisher divided THE EPIPHANIES into four sections: "Dreams," "Games," "Planes," and "Death." Each Epiphany is printed on a separate page with the page number printed in a different color. The four printed Introductions to the image sections each have printed on them, in the same color as the actual page number, all the page numbers that relate to that image section. Marjorie Van Dyke developed the images for the dreams and the games sections; Susan Weil developed the planes and death sections. These paragraphs and accompanying images take the reader / viewer through a series of Joyce&#39;s experiences as a boy, seeing and overhearing the world around him. & Selected by the Independent Curators for the Franklin Furnace exhibition "Contemporary Illustrated Books" as one of the 50 best illustrated books from 1966-1988, it was also featured in the Boston Athenaeum exhibition, "Artists of the Book, 1988: A Facet of Modernism." This important book was sold out within six months of publication and is now infrequently available on the secondary market. It is hard to overstate the importance of this book in contemporary book arts. It is one of the first, if not the first, to entice the reader / viewer with texts and images that they must manipulate to fully see - something now a relatively common occurance in book arts. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>

      Berkeley, CA: Flying Fish Press, 2012. Fine. Number 49 of 50 copies signed by the book artist. An exquisite work by internationally known book artist Julie Chen. Ms. Chen started her press in 1987 and has become renowned for her limited edition artists&#39; books, which emphasize three-dimensional and movable structures, and fine press printing. In her artist&#39;s statement, Ms. Chen says that her work is heavily rooted in the idea of the book as a physical object and time-based medium. Memento is about the fragility of the book and the power of reading. It includes a miniature book that is housed in a metal locket that allows the reader to wear the book close to the body. The simple act of carrying a book on one&#39;;s person has diverse implications depending on circumstance and place. The locket also houses a triptych that contains a woven token commemorating Al-Mutanabbi Street in Iraq. The texts on the woven strips are taken from the preambles to the constitutions of the United States and Iraq. The image surrounding the token is of a booksellers stall on Al-Mutanabbi Street prior to the bombing in 2007. While the commemorative aspect of this piece is clear, the content of Memento addresses philosophical questions about the nature of reading and information transfer in our own lives as well as within the context of western culture in general. This edition is part of An Inventory of Al-Mutanabbi Street, a project to "re-assemble" some of the reading material lost in the car bombing of the street in March 2007. The street had been the historic center of Baghdad bookselling. The book and locket are housed in a brown silk covered box, with trim and the frame around the book in a lovely patterned orange silk. The colophon pulls out from a slot on the front edge of the book. The intricate locket was fabricated by Christina Kemp based on a design by Julie Chen. The book is 1 9/16 x 2 1/8 x 5/16 inches; the locket is 1 7/8 x 2 7/16 x 3/4 inches; The box is 5 3/4 x 6 3/4 x 2 7/8 inches. In fine condition. ARTISTSBOOKS/031113.

      New York: Simon & Schuster, (1987). First Edition. Hardcover. Fine in a Fine dustwrapper. Introduction by Harvey Cox. Lengthily INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the publisher's logo page by the author: "Para el Sr. Edgard/Bronfman, como recuerdo/de su visita a Cuba y de/la interesante e instructiva/conversacion que hemos sos-/tenido/Amistosamente/Fidel Castro/Mayo 12, 1987." Books signed by Castro are scarce, and this is a specially interesting example. After his father's death in 1971, Edgar Bronfman took over as president of Distillers Corporation-Seagrams Ltd. He became well-known internationally during the 1980s and 1990s as the president of the World Jewish Congress leading campaigns to free Soviet Jewry and compensating victims of the Holocaust and their heirs, as well as exposing the Nazi past of Austrian president Kurt Waldheim. In 1982 he became the first representative of a Jewish organization to speak before the United Nations. He was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom by Bill Clinton in 1999. In April, 2012 Bronfman joined 68 other billionaires in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Giving Pledge. Bronfman's former father-in-law, John L. Loeb, owned 40% of Cuban Atlantic Sugar and had large personal holdings of Cuban real estate. The Bronfman family also had connections to the Kennedy family, going back to the Prohibition era and the head of each dynasty, Samuel Bronfman, Edgar's father, and Joe Kennedy, father of the assassinated President. Over the years there has been speculation, tenuous as it is, tying the Bronfman family to the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

        Y Beibl Cyssegr-lan 1588

      Aberystwyth: National Library of Wales, 1987 In brown cloth with blind tooling. Spine has title in gilt, some blind tooling. Internally, cream endpapers, title page in black inks, (iii), 555 pp, a few spots along text block edges, with its slipcase. A University of Wales production which is a facsimile copy of the 1588 Bishop Morgan Bible, an edition limited in numbers to 500 copies only, and now very difficult to find. A lovely copy of an important and always useful title! Morgan, bishop of St Asaph and biblical translator has been called &lsquo;the single most important figure in the history of the Reformation in Wales&rsquo; (Williams, Wales and the Reformation, 342), because it was he who brought to completion the translation of the Bible into Welsh. The Book of Common Prayer, including the psalter, and the New Testament had been translated in 1567, but the task was left unfinished. See ODNB.

        Flower Is

      Tokyo: Yugensha. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. LIMITED FIRST EDITION, ONE OF ONLY 500 COPIES. A FINE COPY IN THE ORIGINAL SHIPPING BOX. Created "primarily as a memorial album to his daughter, Andrea, who was killed in an aeroplane crash ... the whole tenor of the book is forlorn... Never have flowers-that most uplifting of subjects-appeared so woebegone. Seldom has the manic activity of industrial manufacture seemed so pointless. And the Nova Scotia landscapes and still lifes-beautiful, bleak, elegiac-reveal an artist at the height of his powers but hardly at peace with the world or himself." Flower Is... constitutes "a major new statement in still photography... [and] can serve as an eminently fitting apotheosis for stream-of-consciousness photography" (The Photobook, I.264). Designed by Kohei Sugiura with Atsushi Sato. With introduction by Frank. Illustrated with 81 full-page photographs. (Tokyo): (Yugensha), (1987). Folio (343x250mm), original pictorial gray silk, original slipcase with mounted photographic reproduction; in the original shipping box. A fine copy.

No. 141 OF 150 COPIES SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR. Publisher&#39;s rich maroon morocco, covers with blindruled border, upper cover with blindstamped medallion depicting a raven in profile, flat spine with gilt titling, marbled endpapers. Stored in a book well in the original maroon cloth clamshell box. With title page vignette, tailpiece, printer&#39;s device, and 20 full-page woodcuts by Barry Moser, and WITH AN EXTRA SUITE OF SIGNED PLATES contained in a folder inside the folding box. In mint condition. Well illustrated by Moser and impeccably printed by Harold McGrath in Mardersteig&#39;s Dante typeface, this is the only major piece of Welty&#39;s fiction to appear in an important private press edition. One of the great Southern Gothic writers of the 20th century, Eudora Welty (1909-2001), who was born in Jackson, Mississippi, incorporated the lore and atmosphere of her birthplace into her writings, some of which are bitingly funny, others of which are depressingly bleak. In the words of ANB, "Bridegroom" is "a whimsical fantasy pastiche that combines figures from legend (keelboatman Mike Fink) and history (the Harp brothers, notorious Trace highwaymen) with many elements from European fairy tales." The grotesque characters of the Southern Gothic novel are ideal subjects for Moser&#39;s art, and his re-creations of Welty&#39;s cast members here are memorable. This item, especially in the present deluxe version, is uncommonly seen in the marketplace.

        Poems. Translated by Michael Feingold. Illustrated by Neil Welliver

      New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Company. 1987. First Edition in English of Ibsen&#39;s poems, one of 75 copies only, with six etchings, including a double page fold-out. Page size: 8-1/2 x 11-1/2". These etchings were executed in the roullette mezzotint medium by Welliver with the assistance of the master printer, Shigemitsu Tsukaguchi (who prints only for Welliver and Lichtenstein) in this painstaking method resulting in the subtle coloring in each plate. Printed on handmade Dieu Donne&#39; paper by Dan Keleher at the Wild Carrot Letterpress in Perpetua, this is a splendid literary event. Michael Feingold, lead drama critic of THE VILLAGE VOICE for the past decade, is internationally known for his translations of Kurt Weill, Brecht, and Ibsen&#39;s prose plays, THE PRETENDERS and WHEN WE DEAD AWAKEN. He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, NEA Translation Fellowship, and the American Book Award&#39;s Lowenfels Prize for Criticism. The late Neil Welliver, celebrated for his ability to merge Abstract Expressionist and representational techniques, has his work in the Whitney, MOMA, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Hirschhorn, Boston, Houston, Baltimore and Philadelphia&#39;s museums. He was Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Pennsylvania and resided in Lincolnville, Maine, where the rocky and wooded landscape that figures so frequently in his works bears a strong kinship to the Northern vistas celebrated by Ibsen.

        The Collected Stories

      Los Angeles, California, Columbia, Pennsylvania: Underwood/Miller,, 1987. [Comprising:] Beyond Lies the Wub; Second Variety; The Father-Thing; The Days of Perky Pat; The Little Black Box. 5 volumes, octavo. Original coloured cloth, titles to spines in black, tan endpapers. All housed in the publisher&#39;s black cloth slipcase. A beautiful set in excellent condition. First edition, first impression of his posthumous collection of Philip K. Dick&#39;s stories; one of a limited edition of 500 sets numbered in the first volume. With a preface by the author (from a letter written in the year before his death in 1982) in the first volume, a foreword by Steven Owen Godersky (also in volume one), and introductions to each volume by Roger Zelazny, Norman Spinrad, John Brunner, James Tiptree, Jr., and Thomas M Disch. Dick, in his preface, states his definition of "good science fiction" based upon the invasion of a hypothetical "new idea" into reader&#39;s conception of the world: "if it is good sf the idea is new, it is stimulating, and probably most important of all, it sets off a chain-reaction of ramification-ideas in the mind of the reader; it so-to-speak unlocks the reader&#39;s mind so that the mind, like the author&#39;s, begins to create." Included, laid in to the first volume, is the "Brief Synopsis for Alternate World Novel: The Acts of Paul" pamphlet, which publishes Dick&#39;s intriguing plan for an unwritten novel set in a world in which Paul of Tarsus was never converted on the road to Damascus, leaving Christianity to die out and Manichaeism to become the established religion.

      1987. BRIARWOOD WRITERS&#39; ALLIANCE CORRESPONDENCE AND PUBLICITY ARCHIVE. William "Bill" G. Thompson (American, 1922-2009) founded Briarwood Writers&#39; Alliance in 1987 in Needham, MA. He was educated at Boston University and worked in radio and for RCA Victor records before entering into literary representation work with Lordly and Dame, a literary agency in Boston, during the 1970s through the 80s; after a few years he founded Briarwood and as its President represented more than 150 writers and poets - among them some Pulitzer and Nobel prize winners, and performers, booking lectures and readings at colleges and universities. His correspondence is lively and personable, and many of his letters close "Hastily," giving the impression of a bustling business and a a busy schedule juggling campus appearances, promoting poets and poetry, keeping abreast of publishing world news, and making sure his artists are happy and well taken care of as they make the rounds of lecture halls and ivy league faculty parties. Alphabetically his clients ranged from Chinua Achebe to Richard Wilbur. Besides copies of Thompson&#39;s correspondence, the individual files often contain a typed note and/or letter signed by the author, along with publicity photos, copies of reviews, etc. A complete list of the authors included in this archive is available upon request.
