Even more radically, is it a structure that rapidly becomes an object in its own right.?

        Peter Fischli and David Weiss: Airports

      Edition Patrick Frey and Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno, Zürich (Zurich) 1990 - First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Gray paper-covered boards with title printed in blue on cover and spine; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs by Fischli and Weiss. Unpaginated (88 pp.), with 40 four-color plates. 12 x 16-3/4 inches. [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004), and in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).]. Near Fine (very faint small damp stain and the slightest of sunning to 1-1/2 inches from spine on front and rear cover, else As New). An extremely rare Near Mint copy, with minimal and barely noticeable small band of sunning. This title is rarely found without significant sunning to the covers. This is the very finest example we have ever seen. From Parr and Badger: "In Airports, [Fischli and Weiss] examine the means by which the 'Grand Tour' -- once the province of a privileged class -- has now become available to the common man. However it is not the social aspect of airports that attracts the artists' attention, but the means of transport itself -- those silver birds sitting on the runways, waiting to whisk the global traveller off to another culture. Although airports are the gateways to other countries, they themselves, and the sleek jets, conform to a global, rather than local, model of culture. It is this that Fischli and Weiss take note of, revelling in the sameness of, rather than the differences between, airports -- staging posts between cultures, yet, like other aspects of the contemporary culture of consumerism, in themselves largely anonymous and devoid of culture."

        Autograph letter signed

      1990 - KENNEDY, Jacqueline. Autograph letter signed. [New York], January 16, 1990. Single sheet of white unlined Doubleday stationery, measuring 8-1/2 by 11 inches. $1850.Desirable signed autograph letter written entirely in Jackie Kennedy's hand on her professional Doubleday stationery to art book publisher Georges Herscher suggesting how he might find photos of a Cole Porter party and offering phone numbers for Italian actress Valentina Cortese, who Kennedy's web of famous contacts thought might be helpful.The letter, dated "Jan 16 1990." and written on a sheet of Doubleday stationery, reads: "Dear M Herscher""Peter Duchin informs me that the way to find out if photos of the Cole Porter party exist is to call the actress Valentina Cortese, who knows someone very old who may have some. Her numbers are in Milan """"""- in Venice """"""- Her son, Jack Baseheart, will tell Mr Duchin if he finds anything""but I thought it might be quicker if you called too""Good luck. Sincerely Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis." The recipient, Georges Herscher, was an important art book publisher. Though he was the CFO of Hachette in the 1950s, he had more specialized aspirations. In 1971, he founded Editions du Chêne, publishing many groundbreaking works thereafter, generally in limited runs of 300-5000, including books devoted to André Kertész, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Eugene Atget, Robert Doisneau, Jacques Henri Lartigue, Edouard Boubat, Diane Arbus, and Rem Koolhaas (including his first work). In 1980, he founded his own eponymous publishing concern, which he also ran. He produced fine art books until 1987. Peter Duchin, mentioned in the letter, was an American pianist, bandleader, and Vice-Chairman of the New York State Council on the Arts. Valentina Cortese, the suggested contact, is an Italian actress, nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1975 for her performance in François Truffaut's Day for Night. She had a son (mentioned in the letter) with Richard Basehart, her co-star in The House on Telegraph Hill. Jack[ie] Baseheart, the son, was also an actor before his untimely death of a rare paralyzing brain disease. Fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. [Zürich], 10. VIII. 1990.

      1990. 1 S. Gr.-8vo. An den Schriftsteller Hans Bender mit Dank für dessen Glückwünsche zum 85. Geburtstag und der Einladung, ihn in Zürich zu besuchen: "Es macht mich froh, dass Sie nun ein ganz 'freier Schriftsteller' sind. Wem würde man das eher als Ihnen wünschen! [...] Ich würde mich von Herzen freuen, Sie wiederzusehen. Lassen Sie mich's also nicht entgelten, dass ich Leute nie sehen will, die über mich arbeiten! Die Fragen solcher Leute zu beantworten ist für mich etwas aus Dantes Hölle. Wenn mich je wieder einer erwischt, werde ich jede Frage ausgesucht falsch beantworten. Wie schön ist es dagegen, alte Freunde zu sehen [...]." - Hans Bender gehört zu den Leihgebern des 2009 zerstörten "Historischen Archivs der Stadt Köln". Von ihm stammen bedeutende Briefkonvolute ("Womöglich der größte literarische Verlust des Einsturzes", FAZ 29. Juni 2009), darunter auch viele Briefe von und an Elias Canetti. Diese sind durch einen Abdruck in der Zeitschrift "Sinn und Form" überliefert.

        Bones of the Book: An Oblong Identity

      Colfax, WA, 1990-[2015]. Unique. Timothy C. Ely. Planetary Collage Standard binding with hand-sewn hand-dyed Irish linen end- bands and half loose guards. Elaborately blind-tooled brown goat skin spine; resin and pigment encrusted boards. Decorated endpapers by the artist. Manuscript and letterpress title page signed and dated by the artist. Twenty- four double-page spreads. 34 leaves total. Drawn and painted throughout by Timothy Ely in ink, dry pigment, watercolor, and graphite. The boards incorporate six works of art on paper; resin, rivets, paint, ink, and wax; gilt, colored foil, and blind tooling. Housed in a custom drop back box by the artist. 44.5cmx30cmx3.5cm Bones of the Book is the second in a three-book series that differs significantly from Ely?s other art. These books are both biographical and autobiographical. Each honors the important influence of family members in Ely?s life, and combines it with an aspect of bookbinding?the format Ely has chosen to house his artwork throughout his career. In each case, there is also a third narrative that plays a significant role in Ely?s identity as an individual and as an artist. The series began with Binding the Book:The Flight Into Egypt in 1985. Egypt is about Ely?s grandfather, the journal he left behind about his mysterious trip to Egypt between the wars, bookbinding, and the geography of Egypt. For much more information about Binding the Book: The Flight Into Egypt, see The Flight into Egypt: Binding the Book (Chronicle Books, 1995). In Bones of the Book, the visual narrative combines Ely?s origins (Snohomish, WA, his parents, and their hardware store), and the close relationship between book structure and human anatomy. The third book has yet to be made. Ely plans for it to be about his Uncle Jack and his work as a combat photographer in the Pacific during WWII. In addition to the three-fold, co-mingled story line in Bones, as in all of Ely?s art, there are layers of references drawn from alchemy, mathematics, mythology, geography, and geology. Artist?s statement In the early part of the last decade of the 20th century, I wished to contemplate my origins, especially the early and all-consuming attraction to the form of the book and how that might have evolved for me. Beyond deep reading, I have found that the best way to become informed about an event or gather a bit of enlightenment is to make an expressive book. Bones of the Book began as a thought structure aimed at the skeletal system of the body and of the book, as they seem to me to contain functions that echo each other. I also wanted to fuse the influences of my parents and their choice of livelihood into the book by referencing the location of their hardware store and its impact on what I have chosen to do as an artist. My parents, Everett [b. 1914] and Frances [b. 1918], met at a paper mill where they both worked, then married at the outset of America?s involvement in World War II. In about 1948, they opened a hardware store in Snohomish, Washington (a map in the book drawn from memory is an attempt to locate the store in space), which set the tone for my entire life until they retired in 1978. The hardware store.... I long to travel back through time and view it again, for until I began this contemplation, I was not really aware of how much that family business, the community it served, and the tools and materials it contained affected me. I was introduced to the hardware business around the age of 11, not knowing how connected to the arts of the book this would be. It was to be my first real training in the process of building things, and, coupled with the local library where I practically lived when I wasn?t at the store, really became the focus of my interests. When I first began to work this out, I came to believe that there was an inextricable link between what influenced me, and how I came to know the craft of making a book. There seemed to be in place an existing gnosis which acted as both a guide and a set of techniques?a skeletal anatomy was at hand. I began drawing bones in graduate school after a trip to a forbidden beach at the mouth of the Hoh River yielded up a hoard of bird, fish, and crab remains. Though the Hoh Reservation was off limits, some cigarettes gave us entry. That same summer a second pile of bones from draft horses in central Washington gave me a new scale. Then, my Uncle Jack, living in Alaska, would provide the third leg of the bone ?tripod' of visual clues by sending me boxes of bones from a lonely beach near Hoonah, Alaska.These bones would provide both visual inspiration and material for inks. (Bone black ink is especially bluish and potent!) Bones of the Book reflects both my identity as a maker of things, and bones as structural supports, and how that metaphor maps itself onto the cultural object/artifact of the book. As parts of the book traditionally have names of body parts to identify the book terrain, this seems apt. Books have a dorsal structure?a spine?and just as in a humanoid, if this is damaged the book is compromised. A book has a head and tail, and sometimes this head is crowned in gold, gilded, or otherwise given an ornamental treatment. As the names of a book?s parts and their function lend connection to bones and anatomy, so also does the chosen structure of this book. The search for both an appropriately robust and workable binding, and one that properly expresses my artistic intentions, provided a series of opportunities to examine a sampling of medieval books that satisfy these requirements. The structural skeleton of Bones of the Book is supported by a continuous membrane of aged gampi, a Japanese paper possessed of astonishing properties. This paper forms a long, double fold along each folio and is known as a ?half loose? guard. Being somewhat impenetrable to adhesive, this paper reduces the friction of the folio so that it facilitates, without drag, the mobility of the book structure. Put simply, it opens well without adding stress to the binding. In tandem with the sewing supports, cotton textile, and tissue as metaphoric muscle mass, the book begins to resemble an intelligent and projective body. The Doctor said ??It?s alive!?? Bones of the Book was finished as of June 11, 2015. It puts to rest and completes a long examined set of ideas, and its own initial structural challenges provoked a method of working that i can see to have a multiplicity of future uses. T. Ely/ July 2015/ Colfax, WA

I enjoyed hearing from you and hope that our paths will cross again someday. Take care, study hard, and eat well.""The final letter ""s"" in ""sisters"" has been crossed out, undoubtedly by a presidential secretary who noticed it after Bush signed it. President Bush had three brothers (Prescott Jr., Jonathan, William), but only one sister, Nancy.Margaret Hupt had sent President Bush a ""Ban Broccoli"" button.Maureen Dowd reported in ""The New York Times"" on March 23, 1990, '''I do not like broccoli,' the President said, responding to queries about a broccoli ban he has imposed aboard Air Force One, first reported this week in U.S. News and World Report. 'And I haven't liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I'm President of the United States, and I'm not going to eat any more broccoli!'''"

        Boy with Arms Akimbo

      . [California 1989-1990] - . [California 1989-1990]. Boy with Arms Akimbo. [California 1989-1900]. A group of material from this anonymous AIDS activist collective working in and around the Bay Area from 1989-1992. Taking a more provocative and confrontational stance than many other activist groups, they used guerilla art tactics to promote a pro-queer-sex message in the wake of Jesse Helms' 1988 amendment banning federal funding for AIDs education programs. More than 4000 posters (several documented here) were pasted around San Francisco by BWAA and their work spread throughout the country. An early adopter of DIY and anti-copyright aesthetics, the encouraged appropriation of their texts, projects and iconography- including their eponymous logo. As the Queer Cultural Center noted when they included BWAA in their 2011 Queer it Yourself exhibition: "The group also welcomed and documented the informal contributions of passerby who improved, defaced or otherwise modified its street graphics." Included are:Sheet of 10 "Sex is /Just Sex" stickers; One 57.7 x 43 cm poster for a Canadian Micah Lexier exhibition poster on newsprint prominently reproducing the Boy With Arms Akimbo motif;Five double weight gelatin BW photographs, one 10" x 8" , the others 16" x 20" (with one duplicate, but processed at a different exposure with different parts of detail shown) all showing various interventions at (and on) the Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco; A small (12pp) 16mo. Xerographically reproduced pamphlet Boy with Arms Akimbo: His Story (San Francisco: Healing Tales 1989). [Attributes: First Edition]

He is also remembered for several other popular works, including The Martian Chronicles and Something Wicked This Way Comes.

        Large silver gelatin portrait photograph of George Barker by Lucinda Douglas-Menzies

      Lucinda Douglas-Menzies, London 1990 - Large silver gelatin portrait photograph of George Barker by Lucinda Douglas-Menzies head and shoulders, looking into the camera, photographer's label on verso with details of the shoot, Norfolk, March 1990. Paper size: 16 x 12 inches Image size: 14-1/2 x 11 inches Fine condition. Provenance: Lucinda Douglas-Menzies. The Roy Davids Collection (Bonhams). George Granville Baker was a British Catholic author and poet. He wrote Poems (1935), with the support of T.S. Eliot. Barker continued to publish with varying success; his best work is considered to be Anno Domini (1983). Barker's personal life was passionate. He fathered 15 children by four women. One of these women was Elizabeth Smart (1913-1986). Smart was a Canadian poet and novelist. Her book, By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept, detailed her romance with George Barker. Smart had a tumultuous affair and became mother to four children (of his fifteen children). Lucinda Douglas-Menzies (b. 1956) started her training as assistant to architectural photographer Jeremy Whitaker, and to Sydney Harris, press and public relations photographer. She then worked at Sotheby's for five years as a catalogue photographer to the Chinese porcelain, silver and jewellery departments. In 1986 Douglas-Menzies opened her own studio, specializing in both fine art photography and portraiture and exhibited her first solo exhibition of portraits Luminaries in 1989. She has since worked on and exhibited themed groups of portraits notably Portraits of Astronomers (2009) and Portraits of South Asian Writers (2015). The National Portrait Gallery has 76 portraits in their collection. 2005 Portraits Cobbold and Judd, Hintlesham Hall, Suffolk. quoted from Lucinda Douglas-Menzies web site.

        Capital asset prices. A theory of market equilibrium under conditions of risk" in The Journal of Finance 19 issue 3, September 1964, pp. 425 - 442 (Sharpe) AND  "The Valuation of Risk Assets and the Selection of Risky Investments in Stock Portfolios and Capital Budgets" in Review of Economics and Statistics 47 No. 1, February 1965, pp. 13-27 (Lintner) AND "Security Prices, Risk, and Maximal Gains from Diversification" The Journal of Finance 20 No. 4, December 1965, pp. 587 - 615 (Lintner) AND "Risk, Return and Equilibrium. Some Clarifying Comments" in The Journal of Finance 23 No. 1, March 1968, pp. 29 - 40 (Fama)

      IN ORIGINAL WRAPS, FOUR KEY PAPERS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CAPITAL ASSET PRICING MODEL (CAPM), including two by John Lintner who, in 1990, won the Nobel Prize for his pioneering work in the theory of financial economics, specifically his contributions to the theory of price formation for financial assets. A number of prominent economists played a key role in the development of CAPM, three of whose papers are present here: William Sharpe, John Lintner, and Eugene Fama. Eugene Fama resolved an apparent conflict between Lintner and Sharpe's measures of risk. We do not offer a paper by Jan Mossin that was also of import. "The capital asset pricing model (CAPM) is a model that describes the relationship between risk and expected return and that is used in the pricing of risky securities. The general idea behind CAPM is that investors need to be compensated in two ways:  time value of money and risk. The time value of money is represented by the risk-free (rf) rate in the formula and compensates the investors for placing money in any investment over a period of time. The other half of the formula represents risk and calculates the amount of compensation the investor needs for taking on additional risk. This is calculated by taking a risk measure (beta) that compares the returns of the asset to the market over a period of time and to the market premium (Rm-rf)" (Ivestopedia Portal). CONDITION & DETAILS: 4 issues, all in original wraps. Three issues of the Journal of Finance: Volume 19, Issue 3 (September 1964); Volume 20, Issue 4 (December 1965); and Volume 23, Issue 1 (March 1968) - all in very good condition with very, very slight spine wear. Quarto. 10 x 6.75 inches. One issue of The Review of Economics and Statistics: Volume XLVII, Number 1, February 1965. Quarto. 11 x 8.5 inches - fine condition.

        The Antique Bowie Knife Book

      Conyers, GA: Museum Publishing Company, 1990. 1st. Hardcover. First Edition, Limited to 1100 numbered copies; this copy is not numbered. 4to. 552 pp. Introduction by Norm Flayderman. Index. Color plates of over 250 antique Bowies - the cream from over 50 outstanding collections. Cream boards in color printed dustjacket. A fine copy in fine dustjacket; as new. The Bowie is the most famous of American knives. Its history is steeped in legend; it starts with Jim Bowie and his famous Vidalia Sand Bar fight, his part in the fight for Texas independence, and his death at the Alamo. This book illustrates Bowies ranging from the knives of the backwoodsmen to showpieces made for the nineteenth century expositions and presented by royalty. All photographs are in color, with lush backgrounds and props from the period - props including gambling equipment, gold nuggets, abolitionist pamphlets, vigilante medals, and Indian beadwork. Some of the knives featured are from the 1830's Natchez Trace period, the Mexican War, the California gold rush, the Civil War and the cattle drives - and some are from the end-of-the-trail gambling houses. An invaluable reference work on some of the finest Bowies extant.
