        Anjos Proibidos [WITH] Various Sets of Publisher&#39;s Proofs for the American edition entitled: Anjos Proibidos: Forbidden Angels

      (Ipirangia, Sao Paulo, Brazil: Itamarati Grafica e Editora. no date - 1991). First. First edition. Small oblong quarto. Very brief text in Portuguese. Twenty-four photographic images. Fine in just about fine dustwrapper with a small smudge on the rear panel. An exceptionally rare book of nude photography of adolescent Brazilian girls, published to accompany an exhibition of photographs in Sao Paulo. The devoutly Roman Catholic Brazilian government authorities seized and then destroyed 236 copies of the 500 copy run of this title just a week after its publication. Police raided Cabral&#39;s studio, gallery, and printer, and confiscated his negatives and existing prints of the photographs. After two years and legal vindication, Cabral received his negatives back, although in varying degrees of damage.The American edition, titled Anjos Proibidos: Forbidden Angels, and published by Ophelia Editions in 2000, with 27 additional photographs was again suppressed when one of the models, now grown to adulthood, sued for invasion of privacy. Despite the publisher&#39;s eventual victory in the lawsuit, the book was still effectively suppressed, and when it now appears on the secondary market, it invariably commands four figures.[WITH] publisher&#39;s maquette and proofs for the American edition, as follows: 1. a full set of printer&#39;s "blue" proofs for the photos, text, and dustwrapper on blue proofing paper; 2. a full set of same on glossy paper; and 3. a full set of the folded and gathered sheets on glossy paper, laid into a proof of the dustwrapper.A rare book, with unique accompanying material. Provenance on request. OCLC locates two copies of the American edition, and no copies of the Brazilian edition. .

        BIRDS OF NEW GUINEA (VOL. 5) (AUTHENTIC FACSIMILE EDITION) Parrots, Pigeons, Cockatoos, Quail

      Hill House. New;. 1991. Hardcover. 75 Plates. This is not a mere reproduction. This is an exact facsimile of an original held in the Libraries of the British Museum (Natural History) in London and Tring. It is not a reproduction, because no camera was used in transferring the images from the originals. The paper used is 130 gsm mat art paper. This facsimile carries faithfully every spot, mark or stain as the original. It also carries the original Museum Department of Zoology stamps, and librarian&#39;s annotations. The color printing is so accurate that, from behind glass, the naked eye would be unable to distinguish the original from the facsimile. This facsimile is exactly the same size as the original (Imperial Folio: 22" x 15"). It is cased-in and bound between 4 mm. The boards are 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 book, leaving the publication data printed only on the very last page at the end of the book block. This book is individually numbered on the inside front board, hand wrapped in protective brown paper, and placed in its own crush-proof outer carton. The carton is then sealed, numbered and signed on the outside by the printer&#39;s quality control officer. ; Vol. 5 .

      New York: CUZ, 1991. The very uncommon 1991 1st edition, SIGNED BY RICHARD HELL on the title page.

A sharp, well-preserved copy to boot. Bright and Near Fine in its original stapled wrappers. Very light scuffing at the lower panel edges and one inconspicuous crease along the spine, otherwise clean as could be. Quarto, 45 pgs. An early meditation (published in its completed form in 1991) from the lead singer and songwriter of the seminal 70s New York Punk band The Voidoids. . Signed by Author. First Edition. Original Wraps. Fine.
