        GREG GORMAN: VOLUME I ("GREG GORMAN: VOLUME ONE")

      Ridgefield, CT: CPC Publishing, 1989. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Ridgefield, CT: CPC Publishing, 1989. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. The photographer&#39;s breakthrough collection of celebrity portraits and male and female nudes. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the Second Edition. Volume One of the landmark two-volume set. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The edition is now rare. Each volume was published separately, ten years apart from each other, and by different publishers. The reason they nevertheless work perfectly together is that Greg Gorman maintained full creative control over the production of both. A stunningly beautiful production by Greg Gorman and Gary Johns: Oversize-volume format. Photographs by Greg Gorman. There is minimal text. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper by the legendary Rapaport Printing Company New York to the very highest standards. In pictorial DJ, which utilizes a male nude in front and a celebrity portrait on the back, and white titles on the spine, as issued. Presents Greg Gorman&#39;s finest and most representative images in the two genres that he has excelled and established himself in: The celebrity portrait and the nude. Dramatically lit black-and-white, full-page photographs of celebrities are juxtaposed with spectacular, highly erotic nudes, including the now-classic six-panel fold-out of the model Tony Ward in different Classical Sculpture-inspired, full-frontal nude poses. The celebrity portraits include Al Pacino, David Bowie, Charlie Sheen, Warren Beatty, Madonna, Rupert Everett, Pee-Wee Herman, Kim Basinger, Robin Williams, Andy Warhol, and Michael Jackson, among many others. An accomplished Hollywood and lifestyle magazine photographer who has done commercial work for HBO, Columbia Pictures, Interview Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Playboy Magazine, LIFE, and Tatler, among others, Greg Gorman&#39;s true passions are the charismatic personality of the celebrity and the chiseled perfection of the human form, as only the (his) camera can capture. This breakthrough collection offers definitive and ample proof of Greg Gorman&#39;s distinctive style and outstanding mastery of his chosen medium. A gorgeous "coffee-table" book, this is a "must-have" title for Greg Gorman collectors. <b><i> This presentation copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated, and inscribed in black pen on the flyleaf by the photographer: "Thanks for coming and also for your interest in my work. I hope we can do more projects together in the future. All my best, Greg Gorman 3/27/90". Gorman&#39;s handwriting is unusually clean, flowing, and elegant. The recipient is named and was one of Greg Gorman&#39;s most important commercial clients. This title is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only signed and inscribed copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Gorman did not sign most copies and many copies available online have major flaws yet command up to $500. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. </b></I> Lavishly illustrated with duotone plates. One of the finest living American photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GREG GORMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1871681006.

        THE TALE OF THE DYING LUNGS" FRAMED BROADSIDE/ORIGINAL ART

      Sacramento, CA: William T. Vollmann/Vagabond Books, 1989. First Edition. First Printing.. Lithograph. Fine/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Sacramento, CA: William T. Vollmann/Vagabond Books, 1989. Lithograph. Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. Rare William T. Vollmann collectible art piece. A framed copy of "The Tale of The Dying Lungs" broadside, whose stunning image was created by the author. Limited Edition of 200 numbered and signed copies. There appears to be a 1995 Edition reissued by the publisher and available online. If so, this 1989 Edition precedes by eight years and should not be confused with it. An austerely elegant production by William T. Vollmann: Broadside size is large at 13 X 25.5 inches. Art and text by William T. Vollmann. Black titles on top in bold letters. Purple-and-black X-Ray impression of human lungs in the center. Text printed underneath. Printed on Rives Heavyweight Paper using LetterPress by Patrick Reagh. The piece is pressed between two pieces of UV-protected Plexiglas and elegantly framed in black wood. Frame size is 20 X 32 inches. Presents "The Tale of The Dying Lungs", which Vollmann scholars consider to be his first original, handmade art piece sold on a commercial basis. From the beginning, William T. Vollmann has created original art in addition to his prodigious output as a writer. Like his other works in the same vein, "The Tale of The Dying Lungs" is eloquent and morbidly beautiful. While the tale has been interpreted as having a cautionary "anti-smoking/pro-health" message, a closer reading of the text will instead reveal both an existential theme and a social message. In one paragraph (juxtaposed with the X-Ray image of death), Vollmann captures how someone terminally ill suffers yet clings desperately to life until the very end, "to catch his breath and stay alive a little longer". He must suffer twice over: His physical pain is compounded by the pain that an inhumane healthcare system inflicts upon him because it is more concerned with the bottom line than keeping him alive. After all, he signed off his life when he agreed to "No Code" status, which means not being hooked up to a respirator when his heart stops. Death is prompt and impatient. When the time finally comes, he "choked and choked and choked and died". The broadside as a work of art, this is a "must-have" item for William T. Vollmann collectors. <b><i>This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such on recto, Number 93, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue ink-pen by William T. Vollmann. Vollmann has subtly altered his familiar signature: It tapers off in imitation of a dying person&#39;s EKG (electrocardiograph). This piece is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such framed copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed item. </i></b> Selected by The New Yorker Magazine as one of "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century". Nominated by the National Book Critics Circle Awards in 2003 for "Rising Up and Rising Down", his multi-volume history on violence. Winner of the National Book Award in 2005 for "Europe Central". One of the finest living American writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER WILLIAM T. VOLLMANN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

        ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT, INSCRIBED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER

      [Np]. 1989.. Original 16 x 20" black & white photograph (image size 12 x 18" landscape orientation). One corner faintly bumped, otherwise fine. A vintage print of this superb photographic portrait of Burroughs, taken at his shooting range. Burroughs, wearing a hat and combat jacket, with automatic pistol in hand, is standing in front of an array of bullet-riddled targets, framed by the larger rough timber and log backstop, facing the camera directly with a broad, closed- lipped grin. Inscribed by the photographer on the verso: "For Walter Reuben - Merry Xmas From Nelson Lyon &#39;89." Lyon, screenwriter, producer, and former SNL writer, was associated with Burroughs on a number of projects, including the recording, DEAD CITY RADIO, and the audio- book version of NAKED LUNCH. According to the recipient of this print, Lyon made about six exhibition quality prints of this photograph in 1989, like the one in hand, all for presentation; subsequently, the photograph has been reproduced in books about Burroughs, and was used as the Burroughs obit photo by the SF CHRONICLE. Later printings of the photograph have been exhibited and sold through galleries. Burroughs contributed an introductory note to the 1979 catalogue of Reuben&#39;s Kerouac Collection.

SIGNED BY WILKE and dated in the year of publication with a drawing of a stylized vagina on the photographic half title. Out of Print. For pioneering video artist Hannah Wilke (1940-1993), the point of departure was always the body and its discontinuous relationship with language. In the 1970s, Wilke&#39;s work was considered controversial. Today, when art is increasingly cognizant of social context, Wilke&#39;s work has found rightful place among the most important artwork of the past thirty years. Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show held at Gallery 210, University of Missouri, St. Louis, April 3 - 28, 1989. Includes video texts, performance scripts, and other writings by Wilke.

        The Georgics [Signed]; Les Georgiques [Signee]

      London: John Calder, 1989. First English language edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. A Fine copy of the first UK edition, first printing, in a Fine dust jacket, SIGNED BY CLAUDE SIMON on the front free endpaper; Claude Simon&#39;s most important work (rivaled only by "The Flanders Road" - 1961), a novel about the horror, waste, and stupidity of war. Claude Simon who "in his novel combines the poet&#39;s and the painter&#39;s creativeness with a deepened awareness of time in the depiction of the human condition" won the 1985 Nobel Prize in Literature. In both the Press Release announcing the Award, and in the Presentation Speech delivered by Professor Lars Gyllensten of the Swedish Academy, named The Georgics as being Simon&#39;s "most important work", stating as follows: "Simon&#39;s experiences from the Spanish Civil War were similar, depicted in Le Palace and his latest and most important novel, Les Georgiques, 1981. For all the sympathies which he and others might have for those faithful to the government who fought against the fascists, it soon turned out that these government champions for their part, could by no means follow any regular and intelligently planned strategies and operations. On the contrary, the fighters were split into factions and mutual strife, giving way to meaningless and absurd foolhardiness, obstructions and hazardous enterprises. In Les Georgiques George Orwell appears, thinly disguised. Simon&#39;s picture of the Spanish Civil War and of the intellectual idealists who like Orwell, and his English sympathizers, wanted to find an ideologically clear reason in the fight against oppression, shapes itself into a version, at once grotesque and tragic, compassionate and ironic, of war&#39;s reality and of man&#39;s inability to guide his fate and correct his conditions. La Route des Flandres and Les Georgiques are richly decorated compositions which, with sensuous perspicacity and linguistic invocation, conjure up an extremely complicated pattern of personal memories and family traditions, of experiences during modern war and of equivalents from bygone ages, to be exact the Napoleonic era." Copies of this work in the first French edition are surprisingly uncommon to the market. Copies of the first edition in English translation are even more uncommon, and signed copies in English translation are hen&#39;s teeth. A Fine copy, SIGNED BY CLAUDE SIMON. RARE.

        The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, by William Blake

      (San Francisco, 1989). Octavo. (14)pp. A stunning blend of calligraphy and art, written and illuminated by noted California scribe Thomas Ingmire on English handmade paper. With four large illustrations in gouache, gold leaf, gold powder, and Chinese ink. While Ingmire is known as a one of the foremost contemporary calligraphers, the design of this book is quite traditional: the text is calligraphed in a small Roman letter. Initial letters are executed in gold leaf on a ground of gouache. Gold-leaf letters and tiny triangles of different colors are sprinkled throughout the text, at times cascading down the page. The four paintings are more in the style that we associate with Ingmire, with bold strokes of color and ink. William Blake&#146;s own passionate engravings are a clear influence. Ingmire chose to illuminate the passage from The Marriage of Heaven and Hell in which the narrator visits a print shop in Hell where a chaos of information, ideas, and words is received by men and gathered, orderly, into books. The subject is fitting, since this book was produced especially for the San Francisco Book Fair in 1989. The front cover is decorated with a scattering of letters. Extremely fine in full calf-skin parchment with ribbon ties.

        Birds of Australia Vol. V: Parrots, Pigeons, Cockatoos, Quail

      Melbourne: Hill House. New. 1989. Facsimile Edition. Hardback. Elephant Folio 0947352031 First limited facsimile edition thus. numbered 380 of 500. Original green Japanese Saifu cloth gilt. 92 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, minimal wear to the front free endpaper. Publisher&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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."

      "Brooklyn, NY": Frank&#39;s Zine. 1989. "60+ pp. each. Scarce and important example of this phenomena of the zine world. Frank claimed to be a psychopath, planning some kind of big mass murder. While he smoldered, he wrote these zines and sent them, rather inexpensively, to zinesters. He was a good correspondent, writing long letters in blood-red pen, always signed SINcerely and PSYCHOpathically yours. & Later, zinesters began to realize that this self-proclaimed psychopath was much more than a mere faker or big talker. They started to think he was the FBI infiltration of the zine world. What a great idea, try to get leads on psychopaths via the zine world. He did get Mike Diana to submit some art for back cover and interiors. A lot of his clips came from gun magazines and what look like magazines for police and military. Whatever he was, these controversial zines are intriguing, and an important part of zine history. Frank disappeared just as suddenly as he appeared. A few videos of him are on the &#39;net." 9 Side stapled xerographic zines, with cardstock covers and a a couple of cardstock interior pages. Built to last. Readwear. Minor browning to covers. No. 5 has water stain on cover. No. 6 cover wrinkled. No. 8 has 1 pp. color xerox collage interior. Very good.

In tadellosem Zustand. - (Codices Selecti) Das Jagdbuch des Roi Modus - so nannte Henri de Ferrières sein Buch über das Waidwerk, das er um 1370 verfaßte; schuf damit das älteste Jagdtraktat in französischer Sprache. Der Autor wollte die Autorität seines Textes unterstreichen und seine Leser fesseln. Deshalb legte er sein Werk nach Art der griechischen Philosophen als Dialog zwischen Lehrer und Schüler über die Jagd an; der Lehrer ist dabei die allegorische Figur des Königs Modus. Besondere Bedeutung kommt den goldverzierten Miniaturen dieser 1455 in Burgund geschaffenen Handschrift zu.
