        Le Forchette di Munari

      Maurizio Corraini, Mantua 1991 - Slim quarto. (36)ff. One of 1000 copies. Accompanied by four forks crafted into gestures, mounted on wood boards which are each numbered out of twenty and signed by the artist. The forks, which physically embody some of the drawings in the printed volume, recreate various expressions. The four gestures here are "relax", "come va?", "auto-stop", and "sigaretta?". The volume's text is printed in Italian, French, English, Spanish, German, and Japanese. It, along with the forks, demonstrate Munari's preference for simple yet fantastical art, for making the mundane into the absurd, and for pieces that encouraged kinesthetic learning. Munari first gained prominence as a participant in Filippo Tommaso Marinetti's Futurist movement, which emphasized technology, speed, and youth. Munari later distanced himself from Futurism, and his post-war work can be seen as directly in contrast to its themes. Here the forks' play between usefulness and uselessness undermines Futurism's demands for efficiency. Likewise, the use of old technology to represent well-worn gestures contradicts the Futurists' insistence on newness. Each fork is housed in a clear plastic case, which is nailed to the wood board mount and thus allows the board to rotate slightly. Some minor scuffs to plastic, else fine. Volume shows general wear to extremities, with a slight crease to top cover, else fine. Each fork-case measures 14" long by 2" high by 3" wide (except for one, which measures 2" wide).

        The Way we Live Now.

      1991. HODGKIN, Howard and Susan SONTAG. The Way We Live Now. 33 pp. With four hand-coloured aquatints by Howard Hodgkin and one additional signed aquatint. 8vo., bound in paper-covered boards, in the original dust jacket. London: Karsten Schubert, 1991.The Way We Live Now is a special work of art, a unique collaboration between two great artists in response to the AIDS crisis. Sontag's literary classic was written after a close friend had been diagnosed with AIDS: "I had to write and it all just came out in a rush... It seemed that the whole of my life had prepared me to write like that." The story is about living with illness, and Sontag creates a tangled tapestry of emotions. Despite its tragic subject, the resulting work achieves an optimistic effect, which strongly repudiates the traditional horror and fear. This is one of the very rare copies which is still accompanied by the extra signed aquatint.One of 200 copies, signed by Sontag and Hodgkin.

        Passage: A Work Record

      New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf(1991). First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 300 pages. The photographer's third retrospective collection. Now considered a late-modern photography classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Irving Penn and Nicholas Callaway: Oversize-volume format. Cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Irving Penn. Essay by Alexander Liberman. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Irving Penn's "Passage: A Work Record". Some of the most iconic, moving, and beautiful photographs ever taken in the 20th century by one of its greatest photographers. The book is aptly titled: The passage of time, place, unique cultures, and beautiful men and women was Irving Penn's greatest subject (and remains as such for photography itself). The portrait of two shabbily dressed American-Indian children shyly posing for the camera, their hands resting on an ornate European colonial-period table, is classic Irving Penn, a testament to his greatness and humane-ness as a photographer. It is everything the 20th century is about in one simple yet stunning image: Imperial colonialism and indigenous culture, The Old and The New, Rich and Poor, North and South, East and West. Irving Penn died on October 7, 2009 at the age of 92, his place in photographic history permanent and secure. An absolute "must-have" title for Irving Penn collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed and dated (in the year of publication) in black pen on the half-title page by the photographer: "Irving Penn 1991". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. As was his custom, Penn encircled his signature. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few such signed and dated copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online are subsequent printings or have serious flaws yet are priced as though they had collectible value. A rare signed copy thus. 470 plates. Irving Penn's "Moments Preserved" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER IRVING PENN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0679404910.

        Switzerland" from Harmonies of the Spheres: 10 Nations Rejoice. Autograph musical manuscript full score arrangement for wind band. Signed. 1991

      - Small folio (279 x 215 mm.). Unbound. 8 pp. Notated in pencil on 12-stave music paper, rectos only. An Egyptian-born American composer, performer, ethnomusicologist, and educator, El-Dabh came to the United States in 1950, becoming a part of the New York music scene that included Cage, Varèse, and Hovhaness. He went on to study composition with Krenek, Copland, Dallapiccola, and others. "El-Dabh's compositional style is influenced by Egyptian folk and traditional music. Frequently monodic, his works feature complex rhythms and much use of percussion. His career was launched in 1949 with a highly acclaimed performance of It is Dark and Damp on the Front (1948) at All Saints Cathedral, Cairo. In 1950 he made his début as a solo drummer, under the direction of Stokowski, in the first performance of Tahmeela. Other works include Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962) and Lucifer (1975), commissioned by Martha Graham; Sound and Light of the Pyramids of Giza (1960), written for the Cultural Ministry of the Egyptian Government and performed daily at the pyramids; and New Pharaoh's Suite, written for the Cleveland Museum of Art to accompany a visiting Ethiopian exhibit from the Louvre (1996). Spectrum no.1 'Symphonies in Sonic Vibration' (1955) and Leiyla and the Poet (1959) have been recorded." Denise A. Seachrist in Grove Music Online.An early pioneer of electronic music, El-Dabh composed one of the earliest known works of tape music, or "musique concrète," in 1944, The Expression of Zaar. He also scored four ballets for Martha Graham: Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962), and Lucifer (1975).Harmonies of the Spheres: 10 Nations Rejoice was commissioned for the Middfest International Celebration in Middletown, Ohio.

      Dawson's Book Shop, Los Angeles 1991 - 21pp. One of 60 copies of this miniature leaf book printed by Pall Bohne for Dawson's Book Shop. With an engraved, illustrated leaf from an extremely rare miniature two-volume picture-Bible, printed in The Hague by Daniel Langeweg, circa 1750. The original leaf contains a full-page wood engraving executed by Jan Besoet from the Book of Zechariah, chapter IV, verse 2, which depicts Zechariah's vision of a golden candlestick upon which a bowl, seven lamps, and seven pipes sat, with an olive tree on either side. The text of the book includes a brief essay by Ruth Adomeit on the history of this bible. Pall Bohne has added a note explaining how he made the endpapers using a technique called "Dutch Gilt," which is contemporary with Langeweg's "Bybel." Extremely fine in leather-backed patterned paper boards. (Adomeit C51; Bradbury, p. 66; Chalmers 196.5). (2 1/2 by 1 7/8; 64x47mm). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        BODMER'S AMERICA

      Alecto Historical Editions, London 1991 - 765 x 620 mm. (30 1/8 x 24 1/2"). No. 23 OF 125 COPIES. Loose as issued in five buckram folders inside a cloth solander box, paper labels. WITH 81 HAND-FINISHED COLOR PLATES, heightened with gum arabic. One corner of the (heavy) box very expertly repaired, two-inch closed internal tear to title sheet seamlessly mended, other very minor signs of use to the box, but the portfolios and their plates as new, even the tissues guards in pristine condition. Printed using the original engraved plates for "Travels in the Interior of North America in the Years 1832-34," this is a splendidly produced facsimile of a monumental work on the American West that offers a very attractive alternative to the prohibitively expensive original. Swiss artist Karl Bodmer (1809-93) was working as a landscape illustrator when he was hired by the Prussian naturalist Prince Maximilian of Wied for an expedition to examine and describe the wildlife and Indian tribes of the American West. The men travelled up the Missouri River from Saint Louis to Montana over a 13-month period, and Bodmer documented the landscape and people of the region in great detail. In the words of the website of the National Agricultural Library, "although Maximilian and Bodmer were not the first to explore the American West and record their observations, they were the first team combining a trained, dedicated scientist with an especially skilled illustrator, whose collaboration resulted in a work of unique historical, scientific, and aesthetic importance." According to ANB, "for over a century Bodmer's aquatints have been regarded as one of the most significant contributions to the iconography of the western frontier." In his portraits of American Indians, Bodmer "achieved a level of accuracy and sensitivity that no other artist of the American frontier has ever surpassed. His work is particularly valuable for its detailed rendition of the Indians' ornamentation, attire, and implements. Indeed, Bodmer was far superior to his better-known contemporary George Catlin, whose work lacks the Swiss artist's fidelity and meticulous attention to detail." In addition to depictions of native Americans, the "Travels" (the work was also produced in German and French) contains a number of memorable images of flora and fauna, terrain, frontiersmen, steamboats, and more. After the printing of the original editions, the location of the plates remained unknown until their rediscovery at Castle Wied in the 1950s; they eventually ended up being donated to the Omaha Joslyn Art Museum, which then collaborated with Alecto Historical Editions in London on the present spectacular reproduction. In an effort to achieve thoroughgoing authenticity, the work on our illustrations was done using the 19th century poupée printing technique, a laborious and exacting method involving the application by hand of multiple colors on the same plate. Copies of the original editions--which seldom appear in appealing condition--are now extravagantly expensive, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. And copies of the present facsimile simply do not appear (this is the only copy we could trace that was not sold directly to institutions at the time of production). The original price of the present facsimile in 1991 was $85,000.

        Harmonies of the Spheres. "Ten Nations Rejoice" for Wind Symphonie[!] Orchestra. Autograph musical manuscript full score. Signed and dated 1991

      - Large folio (355 x 278 mm.). Unbound. 25 pp. Notated in pencil on 20-stave "Judy Green" music paper, rectos only. 1f. (title including description of extensive percussion forces and performance instructions). With "To Middfest Ten Nations Celebration" to head of first page of music. With occasional evidence of re-writings and/or corrections including additions in blue pencil. Together with: 4 pp. of autograph musical sketches and a 3-page textual draft of a poem entitled "Harmonies of the Spheres;" a typescript copy of the final text; and two photocopies of the poem, all with some annotations in pencil. An Egyptian-born American composer, performer, ethnomusicologist, and educator, El-Dabh came to the United States in 1950, becoming a part of the New York music scene that included Cage, Varèse, and Hovhaness. He went on to study composition with Krenek, Copland, Dallapiccola, and others. "El-Dabh's compositional style is influenced by Egyptian folk and traditional music. Frequently monodic, his works feature complex rhythms and much use of percussion. His career was launched in 1949 with a highly acclaimed performance of It is Dark and Damp on the Front (1948) at All Saints Cathedral, Cairo. In 1950 he made his début as a solo drummer, under the direction of Stokowski, in the first performance of Tahmeela. Other works include Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962) and Lucifer (1975), commissioned by Martha Graham; Sound and Light of the Pyramids of Giza (1960), written for the Cultural Ministry of the Egyptian Government and performed daily at the pyramids; and New Pharaoh's Suite, written for the Cleveland Museum of Art to accompany a visiting Ethiopian exhibit from the Louvre (1996). Spectrum no.1 'Symphonies in Sonic Vibration' (1955) and Leiyla and the Poet (1959) have been recorded." Denise A. Seachrist in Grove Music Online.An early pioneer of electronic music, El-Dabh composed one of the earliest known works of tape music, or "musique concrète," in 1944, The Expression of Zaar. He also scored four ballets for Martha Graham: Clytemnestra (1958), One More Gaudy Night (1961), A Look at Lightning (1962), and Lucifer (1975).Harmonies of the Spheres: 10 Nations Rejoice was commissioned for the Middfest International Celebration in Middletown, Ohio.

      Santa Barbara, California: Pamela Zwehl-Burke, 1991. Santa Barbara, California:: Pamela Zwehl-Burke,, 1991.. Edition of 10. 8 x 11.25"; 10 pages. Laminated drawings. A pair of laminated sheets spiral bound with plastic spiral at fore-edge. Pamela Zwehl-Burke: "I made ten or twelve drawings about roots and tangles and organic mysteries, which connected at the edges, following on a four-print series about learning to swim, which showed a woman's swimsuited body under the water ending at the surface of the water, not showing her head. It became clear to me that the dense tangles and potent growth and interactions, treasures and dangers were standing in for the Unconscious, and I used the same image for a very small high-edition scroll (for the International Society of Copier Artists) called 'Ah, Consciousness.' .... The idea of hyperdensity and complexity seemed to work even better when the drawings were photocopied onto plastic and bound to overlap." (Three remaining copies)

        Nobel Lectures in Physics WITH "Deep inelastic scattering: The early years" [Taylor, pp. 573-595] WITH "Deep inelastic scattering: Experiments on the proton and the observation of scaling" [Kendall, pp. 597-614]; "Deep inelastic scattering: Comparisons with the quark model" [Friedman, pp. 615-628] in Reviews of Modern Physics, Vol. 63, No. 3, July 1991

      American Physical Society, Lancaster 1991 - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF A SPECIAL 1991 ISSUE OF REVIEWS OF MODERN PHYSICS INCLUSIVE OF THE NOBEL PRIZE WINNING PAPERS OF THE THREE PHYSICISTS AWARDED THE 1990 NOBEL PRIZE IN PHYSICS. EACH PAPER IS SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. The 1990 prize was awarded to Jerome I. Friedman, Henry W. Kendall, both of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Richard E. Taylor, of the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), "for their pioneering investigations concerning deep inelastic scattering of electrons on protons and bound neutrons, which have been of essential importance for the development of the quark model in particle physics" (Nobel Prize Committee). Their work provided a profound and lasting "breakthrough in our understanding of the structure of matter" (ibid). "The three prizewinners were key persons in a research team which in a series of investigations found clear signs that there exists an inner structure in the protons and neutrons of the atomic nucleus. What has become known as the "SLAC-MIT experiment" paved the way for further investigations of the innermost structures of matter. Ever since the beginning of this century, researchers have studied the inner structure of atoms. Our knowledge has increased successively, among other ways through the discovery (around 1910-1930) of the nucleus of the atom and its nucleons. During the 1950s there arrived on the scene a large number of what were termed hadrons, whose properties resembled those of nucleons. To reduce these to order, the concept of quarks was introduced, at the beginning of the 1960s. Yet it was impossible to see any traces of quarks in nature until the SLAG-MIT experiment itself. "The discovery was made when protons and neutrons were illuminated with beams from a giant "electron microscope" - a two-mile-long accelerator at SLAC in California, USA. The inner structure was interpreted to mean thatquarksform the fundamental building blocks of protons and neutrons. The electrically neutral "glue" binding the quarks together is calledgluons. All matter on earth, including our human bodies, consists to more than 99% of quarks with associated gluons. The little that remains is electrons" (Nobel Prize Press Release). CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Physical Society. Vol. 63, No. 3, July 1991. Original printed wraps. (10.5 x 8 inches; 263 x 200mm). This is not an ex-institutional copy. As noted, each paper is signed by its Nobel Prize winning author. Near fine condition inside and out. [Attributes: First Edition]

        SAN FRANCISCO SEX DIARY / CALENDAR

      [San Francisco, CA]: N.P., 1991. Monthly calendars filled in with the sex diary of a Chinese-American postal worker in San Francisco who chronicles his interactions with different women, including excruciating detail of phone calls, sex acts, how much money he spends to give them gifts and rent, utilities money, where he drives them, when and why he refuses their calls, when they fight, when they have their periods, etc. Reading the sagas of Erma, Gerri (changed spelling to Jerri), Cora, Juanita, BeBe, Mildred, Pearl, etc. is a fascinating view into the diarist's inner life. Asterisks notate when he has intercourse with one of them. More often he notes, "no sex" for one or another reason. The set of 15 monthly calendars, filled with tiny writing, encompass the years 1971-1976, 1981, and 1983-1991.
