Published on the occasion of the 1988 exhibition "Hiroshi Sugimoto" at Sonnabend Gallery, New York, Sagacho Exhibit Space, Tokyo and Zeito Photo Salon, Tokyo. Near Fine (a faint 3-inch crease to the lower left corner of the rear cover and a stray linear abrasion on the rear cover, light wear to the extremities), in Near Fine dust jacket (damp stain at heel of spine, 1/8-inch puncture to spine, slight surface wear and foxing to the interior, mostly along the top edge, light wear to the extremities and some light soiling, mostly on the rear panel). Sugimoto's first monograph, this exhibition catalogue introduced readers to the three most significant bodies of work he has produced since the late-1970s.From the artist (on Dioramas): "Upon first arriving in New York in 1974, I did the tourist thing. Eventually I visited the Natural History Museum, where I made a curious discovery: the stuffed animals positioned before painted backdrops looked utterly fake, yet by taking a quick peek with one eye closed, all perspective vanished, and suddenly they looked very real. I'd found a way to see the world as a camera does. However fake the subject, once photographed, it's as good as real."On Theaters: "I'm a habitual self-interlocutor. Around the time I started photographing at the Natural History Museum, one evening I had a near-hallucinatory vision. The question-and-answer session that led up to this vision went something like this: Suppose you shoot a whole movie in a single frame? And the answer: You get a shining screen. Immediately I sprang into action, experimenting toward realizing this vision. Dressed up as a tourist, I walked into a cheap cinema in the East Village with a large-format camera. As soon as the movie started, I fixed the shutter at a wide-open aperture, and two hours later when the movie finished, I clicked the shutter closed. That evening, I developed the film, and the vision exploded behind my eyes."On Seascapes: "Water and air. So very commonplace are these substances, they hardly attract attention -- and yet they vouchsafe our very existence. The beginnings of life are shrouded in myth: Let there be water and air. Living phenomena spontaneously generated from water and air in the presence of light, though that could just as easily suggest random coincidence as a Deity. Let's just say that there happened to be a planet with water and air in our solar system, and moreover at precisely the right distance from the sun for the temperatures required to coax forth life. While hardly inconceivable that at least one such planet should exist in the vast reaches of universe, we search in vain for another similar example. Mystery of mysteries, water and air are right there before us in the sea. Every time I view the sea, I feel a calming sense of security, as if visiting my ancestral home; I embark on a voyage of seeing." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

This is the Publisher's Copy, so stated on the colophon, where John Martin has added his signature. Though Fante is now widely heralded as one of the quintessential Los Angeles novelists, by the 1970's his work had fallen into relative obscurity. It wasn't until his work was re-discovered by Charles Bukowski, at whose request Martin began to reissue his novels, that his work began to enjoy a revival. Martin went on to reissue all of Fante's out of print novels, in addition to issuing several previously unpublished works. The publisher's own copy, and an exceptional association.

        The Old-time Printer

      Xavier Press, Baltimore 1988 - vi, 18pp. Samuel Clemens's account of his formative time spent as a printer's apprentice, presented as a speech at a dinner for New York printers. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of Clemens and a vignette depicting a compositor setting type. This copy is in a designer binding by the Italian-British bookbinder Paolo Taddeo. Onlays of salmon, grey, and black morocco form the shape of a piece of lead type, outlined in palladium-leaf tooling, creating a symmetrical design on each of the covers. The artist chose the letter H for his design, citing the letter's visual stability and steadiness, "with both feet firmly planted on the ground." As someone whose first language is Italian, he also notes that his selection of the letter H is "controversial," since it is not pronounced in his native language and gives him difficulty in spoken English. However, he writes, "in my mother tongue it's a letter of vital importance in the way that it changes the sounds of the consonants it attaches to." Housed in a clamshell box that contains a drawer for the two pieces of seven- and ten-point type included with the book. Taddeo was elected a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders in 2013 and has twice won the Arthur Johnson Award in the organization's annual competition. (2 1/2 by 2; 65x53mm).

Remaining faithful to the delightful typographic eccentricities and variant spellings of Sterne's own self-published editions from the 1760s, the main text of the novel has been set in Caslon Old Style - the typeface utilized by Sterne for the original printings - and bound in a single, substantial three-quarter green goatskin over lovely hand-marbled boards volume. This is accompanied by literary scholar Melvyn New's informative forty-six page essay "Lawrence Sterne and Tristram Shandy" separately bound in boards. The crowning achievement of this ambitious undertaking however is the third volume which contains John Baldessari's wry visual commentary of photo-collaged and altered found photographs and film stills in the form of a lengthy accordion-fold leporello that is anchored between green gilt-stamped boards. The three volumes are housed in a gilt-stamped green paper over board slipcase along with the additional Arion Press pre-publication prospectus laid in. A brand new, most handsome example of standard edition of this exquisite, uncommon item limited to four hundred unnumbered copies BOLDLY SIGNED "John Baldessari" in pencil on the colophon of illustrated volume, as issued.

Héritier de la révélation christique, du savoir égyptien et grec, de la tradition celtique, cet Ordre allait, pendant deux siècles, déposer les germes de ce qui aurait pu être la plus extraordinaire civilisation du monde moderne. Par quels moyens techniques, avec quelles ressources financières est-il parvenu en quelques années à faire se dresser, à travers toute l'Europe chrétienne, les flèches de centaines de cathédrales? A cette question, comme à tant d'autres tout aussi intrigantes, répond dans ce nouveau livre Louis Charpentier, l'auteur des Mystères de la Cathédrale de Chartres. Avec lui, nous accompagnons en Terre Sainte les neuf Chevaliers qui avaient mission de retrouver l'Arche d'Alliance et les Tables de la Loi. Nous assistons à la création de ces premiers établissements agricoles, de ces premières hôtelleries, de ces premières banques que furent les Commanderies. Nous voyons partir de La Rochelle les vaisseaux qui, bien avant Christophe Colomb, allaient aborder en Amérique. Secrètes et surprenantes missions auxquelles les bûchers de l'Inquisition devaient mettre fin. Pour toujours?.- [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Bonjour Monsieur Le Corbusier

      Hans Grieshader 1988, Zurich - 111 111 pp., illustrated throughout. FRENCH TEXT. The deluxe limited edition. One of 150 copies in a printed white slipcase, with a signed photograph of Le Corbusier by Doisneau in it's own card folder. Robert Doisneau was employed as an in-house photographer by Renault, a job he willingly quit to work free-lance. He was the photographer of the RÃ sistance, documenting both the occupation and the liberation of Paris. His commissioned works for the Racho Agency put his name on the map, but it was his images of Paris streets and street life that made him world-famous. Doisneau repeatedly portrayed prominent personalities of his time (an example is the mesmerizing portrait of Pablo Picasso with fingers made of cake dough), but only the best-informed experts and most loyal followers were aware of the series of portraits of Le Corbusier made in the early 1950s. In 1988 a small extract of this series was published in a then-groundbreaking edition, that presented Doisneau's images in a luxurious yet still discreet form. Most of the time the architect, painter and sculptor Le Corbusier was painfully aware of the camera watching over him and when concentrated he playfully manipulated the camera by chosing different poses or expressions. Sometimes though, Doisneau was able to catch the modern master at unexpected moments. Reminiscent of his snapshots of Paris life, these images show us the human being that was behind one of the great thinkers and innovators of the 20th century. Fine copy in slipcase.

      - PINKNEY,JERRY (HARRIS,JOEL CHANDLER)illus. ORIGINAL ART: MORE TALES OF UNCLE REMUS - RABBIT AND FOX ON ROOF - by Joel Chandler Harris. We are pleased to offer this art by Pinkney used in his edition of More Tales of Uncle Remus published in 1988 by Dial. This is a detailed pen and ink drawing that appears on page 5. The actual image measures 6 1/2" wide x 7" high on art paper 7 1/2 x 11" and is signed - a charming image. Jerry Pinkney has been illustrating children's books since 1964 and has the rare distinction of being the recipient of three Caldecott Honor Medals -- in 1995 for John Henry by Julius Lester (Dial), in 1990 for The Talking Eggs by Robert D. San Souci (Dial) and in 1989 for Mirandy and Brother Wind by Patricia C. McKissack (Knopf). He has won the Coretta Scott King Award three times and a Coretta Scott King Honor twice. Mr. Pinkney has received four awards for his body of work: the Drexel Citation for Children's Literature, the David McCord Award , the Philadelphia School of Art and Design Alumni Award, and the Keene State College Children's Literature Festival Award. In addition to his work on children's books, he is an extremely successful artist who has had eleven one-man retrospectives at venues ranging from the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists, the Art Institute of Chicago and Pittsburgh Children's Museum. and will be traveling through 1998. Mr. Pinkney has illustrated for a wide variety of clients, including National Geographic , the National Parks Service, the U.S. Postal Service, the American Library Association and the Association of Booksellers for Children. Many of Mr. Pinkney's children's books celebrate multicultural and African American themes. 'Working on both the Uncle Remus tales and John Henry has shown me an important link between pivotal and opposite African American folk heroes. Brer Rabbit, the sly trickster, originated during slavery and was the first African American folk hero. Slaves who wanted to get the better of their masters needed to be cunning and sly -- hence the trickster role.' " (from Penguin web site). [Attributes: Signed Copy]
