        Bonjour Monsieur Le Corbusier

      Zurich: Hans Grieshader 1988. 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 Résistance, 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. . Fine. Hard Cover. Limited Numbered Edition. 1988. Large Square 4to.

        MONOGRAPH OF THE RAMPHASTIDE TOUCANS

      Melbourne: Hill House, 1988. Fine limited facsimile edition thus. Number 326 of 500 Original blue Japanese Saifu cloth, gilt. 52 fine coloured plates with accompanying text. Endpapers with a repeating pattern of BM library stamps. One of series of remarkably exact same-size facsimile of the original in the British Library, printed by offset lithography on acid-free matt art paper and hand-bound. The Hill House series contained the only authentic full-size facsimiles of the works of John Gould - this volume is one of the original printings and now out of print. An as-new copy. Publisher's blurb thus "They are not reproductions, because no camera was used in transferring the images from the B.M.(N.H.) originals. Indeed the originals are taken by Museum security courier to the repro-house in Singapore, where they are subjected to the preparation of new plates for printing on 5 and 6 colour offset presses. The paper used is 130 gsm mat art paper. As facsimiles, the books carry faithfully every spot, mark or stain of the originals. They also carry the original Museum Department of Zoology stamps, and librarian's annotations. From behind glass, the naked eye would be unable to distinguish the original from the facsimile, so accurate is the colour printing. Also as facsimiles, they are exactly the same size as the originals (Imperial Folio: 22" x 15"). Each volume is hand sewn, cased-in and bound between 4 mm. boards covered in special Japanese Saifu cloth, gold stamped on the spine, and with the gold Crown Cipher of the British Museum (Natural History) on the front, and blind embossed on the inner margin of the front boards. The end-papers are of special wood-free heavy grade paper, printed in a generated repetitive pattern of the Museum's Library stamps. The publisher has not intruded into the authenticity of the books, leaving the publication data printed only on the very last page at the end of the book block. Each copy is hand inspected by the printer's quality control officer, individually numbered on the inside front board, Thus, no two copies are exactly the same. Although initial volumes were printed in more than 500 copies, later production runs have not exceeded 300 for world-wide sale. This has been caused by a relative shortage of quality paper, together with the intensive hand-labour involved in their production." Please see the other Gould titles we are offering in this impressive edition. This book is held in stock.. Facsimile Edition. Hardcover. New/No Dust Jacket. Elephant Folio.

        TILT: the black-flagged streets

      London, England:: Ken Campbell,, 1988.. Edition of 80. 12 x 9"; 62 unnumbered pages. Letterpress composed of Albertus type, found lino blocks, and handmade zinc blocks. Many passes including metallic dusting and handwork. Bound with black cloth spine and decorative paper boards in trapezoid shape. In printed slipcase. Ken Campbell, The Maker's Hand, Twenty books: "'Tilt' was the widest-cast net so far, bringing the most disparate things together. I wrote a poem called Storm Song in Canada in 1981, after listening to a sung account of a maritime disaster on one of the Great Lakes (The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, I think it was). I also had in mind the vertiginous steps of flagstones up to the old cathedral at Whitby and the black flag of anarchy and disturbance. I had found some old mounted lino blocks which were random-sized squares, black flags of different sizes, and some Albertus type, rather beaten up. "While in Zürich I walked into the Museum Rietberg and up to a statue of Shiva, with limbs hanging out in funny angles, and lightning in his/her hair, all in a big wheel of fire. I can remember the statue saying to me, I'm coming into your book. I thought, what the hell has Shiva got to do with this book about a Storm Song and the Whitby steps and black flags? And I thought, well, I'll do as I'm told, as ever. The following morning at breakfast I drew the figure of Shiva, with breasts, and realised it was a puppet that I was going to dismantle. I made a puppet out of zinc pieces; it is disassembled from the right-hand page by repeatedly having a piece of its body nominated by a decorative silver star. Each piece is removed and replaced on the left-hand page. Alongside this cycle of nomination, removal and redisposition, the poem accumulates line by line. In this way Shiva is removed from the wheel of fire of the material world on the right, and repositioned and rebuilt in a calmer place on the left. "Each new line of the poem is revealed between black flags, the flags being arranged to suit the disposition of the line that they enclose. A decorative border is used to re-affirm the rectilinear nature of the page to counter what I did to the cover, which was to make it tilted and disturbed. "A line in the poem refers to 'the kingly fisher of men.' A Christ or Osiris figure perhaps, but I discovered that Halcyon, the kingfisher, mythically made its nest on stormy waters, thus calming them. This seemed to complete the circle proposed by the poem. "I also discovered, as an act of necessity, an odd process which I have called offset letterpress. To enable a previously printed coloured element to show better through a recently-applied dark solid, I immediately ran the wet page through the press again after having wiped the solid plate clean. This removed ink from where it sat on the underlying image but not from where it was sitting in the virgin paper. "The statue of Shiva that spoke to me had, unbeknownst to me at the time, been a childhood obsession of our Zurich hostess. The statue in the Museum Rietberg was accompanied by a dancing girl, who appears at each end of this book.

        Zwei große Bäume an einem Hang, dahinter ein Schweizer Holzhaus, wahrscheinlich bei Erstfeld im Kanton Uri,

      . Feder in Braun, über Bleistift, auf Velin. 22,3 : 20 cm. Vgl. zu dieser Zeichnung besonders Katalog: Friedrich Salathe. Basel/Lübeck/Stuttgart, 1988, Nrn. 155 und 157, Abb. 60 und 62.. Nach einem mehr als fünfjährigen Aufenthalt in Italien, kehrte Salathe 1821 in die Schweiz zurück. Bevor er sich wieder in Basel niederließ, verbrachte er fünfzehn Wochen in Erstfeld im Kanton Uri. Die in dieser Zeit entstandenen Zeichnungen sind Zeugnisse der in Italien erlangten Sicherheit, eine große Landschaft, auch kleine Landschaftsausschnitte mühelos zu erfassen. 1818 hatte Salathe C. F. von Rumohr (1785-1843) kennengelernt, der ihn förderte und zum Studium vor der Natur anregte. Um seinen Lebensunterhalt zu sichern, war Salathe in Basel als Vedutenstecher tätig, seit 1823 lebte er in Paris.

        Zwei große Bäume an einem Hang, dahinter ein Schweizer Holzhaus, wahrscheinlich bei Erstfeld im Kanton Uri,

      - Feder in Braun, über Bleistift, auf Velin. 22,3 : 20 cm. Vgl. zu dieser Zeichnung besonders Katalog: Friedrich Salathé. Basel/Lübeck/Stuttgart, 1988, Nrn. 155 und 157, Abb. 60 und 62. Nach einem mehr als fünfjährigen Aufenthalt in Italien, kehrte Salathé 1821 in die Schweiz zurück. Bevor er sich wieder in Basel niederließ, verbrachte er fünfzehn Wochen in Erstfeld im Kanton Uri. Die in dieser Zeit entstandenen Zeichnungen sind Zeugnisse der in Italien erlangten Sicherheit, eine große Landschaft, auch kleine Landschaftsausschnitte mühelos zu erfassen. 1818 hatte Salathé C. F. von Rumohr (1785-1843) kennengelernt, der ihn förderte und zum Studium vor der Natur anregte. Um seinen Lebensunterhalt zu sichern, war Salathé in Basel als Vedutenstecher tätig, seit 1823 lebte er in Paris.

Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket (1/2-inch bump to the front lower right corner affecting the dust jacket, front cover and pages only, not affecting the plates; light abrasions to the extremities, else Fine). 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." Signed by Author.
