      Pinecone Press 1991-2005, Santa Barbara, CA. - Collection of 7 of Sherwin Carlquist's photography books of male nudes in natural landscapes:- Natural Man (1991): 1/2000. Quarto. [4]pp (Title and Preface), 124 leaves (Plates), [4]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over black cloth, with silver lettering on spine and front cover. "The Ansel Adams of the male nude," Sherwin Carlquist brings together in exciting new ways two subjects traditionally treated separately by photography: landscape and the human figure. Carlquist's photographs have the textural richness, exquisite detail, and tonal richness of the great landscape photographs. His images also have the compositional care and moody expressiveness of fine figure photographs. He has met the challenges of outdoor figure photography with freshness and ingenuity, and his visions are certain to influence a new generation of photographers. This volume is splendidly illustrated 124 b/w photographic reproductions of nude men. First edition limited to 2,000 copies, of which this is No. 446. Minor rubbing and shelf wear along edges of dust-jacket. DJ in overall good, binding and interior in very good condition. - Man Naturally (1996): 1) First copy: 1/2000. Quarto. [6]pp (Title and Preface), 212pp (Plates), [6]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over tan cloth, with black lettering on spine and front cover. Title page signed by the author. Following the success of his photographic essay "Natural Man," Sherwin Carlquist has expanded his coverage of the male nude in "Man Naturally." Featuring 212 b/w photographs, this volume explores the interrelationship between the male body and a landscape, integrating these two elements in new and ingenious ways in order to produce compositions of lasting value. First edition limited to 2,000 copies, of which this is No. 331. Moderate rubbing and shelf wear on dust-jacket. DJ in overall good- to good, binding and interior in very good condition. 2) Second copy: This second copy is not signed nor numbered. Minor shelf wear on dust-jacket. DJ in overall good, binding and interior in very good condition.- The Natural Man (1999): 1/2000. Quarto. [6]pp (Title and Preface), 210pp (Plates), [6]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over black cloth, with white lettering on spine and front cover. Frontispiece. "The Natural Man" extends the efforts of Carlquist's two previous books by introducing compositions in which the landscape dominates as well as those in which a body dominates and adds a few novel compositions: panels of bodies (rather than the entire figure) combined with vignettes of the adjacent landscape. Textures of rock, wood, leaves, clouds, and shadows are introduced throughout the book in ways that are both classical and yet as new as today. This volume is splendidly illustrated with 210 b/w photographic reproductions of nude men. First edition limited to 2,000 copies, of which this is No. 647. Dust-jacket slightly sunned and rubbed along edges. DJ in overall good, binding and interior in very good condition.- Man/Nature (2002): 1/2000. Quarto. [6]pp (Title and Preface), 212pp (Plates), [6]pp (List of photographs). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over tan cloth, with black lettering on spine and front cover. Frontispiece. In this newest addition to Sherwin Carlquist's series, there is an effort to depict textures and forms with even greater diversity and richness. Landscapes used in these photographs include some of the most striking in southern Utah, in which sandstones and other rocks are intricately sculptured by wind and water. Californian landscapes with equally intense textural features supply the majority of the photographs. Extensive use is made of weathered wood, leaf shadows, and foliage (especially pine needles) as a way of connecting the strength of the male figure to the natural landscape. The models are diverse yet complement the scenery in which they are photographed; 28 models are r [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

They produced some proof copies that were 11-1/2 x 8-1/2in but when it went to press they cut the catalogues & lithographs to 11 x 8-1/2in (29.2x21.6), and all the 3,000 copies are this size except for the proof copies. Also the illustrated wrap around cover was also created by the artist especially for this publication, printed on Rives paper at ULAE, and folds out to the paper size: 33 x 11in; this is the limited trade edition of 3,000 unnumbered copies; the book is not signed; also the catalogue's covers by Johns is a rework of THE SEASONS in many different versions (the lithograph is still attached to spine as issued but carefully be removed for framing), and text by Roberta Bernstein; the book has 57pp, 52 illustrations (some in color and full page), with text descriptions; Print Exhibitions and Bibliography in rear of catalogue; wrappers are clean, the lithograph frontispiece and other plates in the catalogue are in EXCELLENT COND.

        *VERSUCH ÜBER DEN GEGLÜCKTEN TAG*Ein Wintertagtraum. Nach seinem "Versuch über die Müdigkeit" und dem "Versuch über die Jukebox" legt Peter Handke hier den "Versuch über den geglückten Tag" vor. Das Ich der Erzählung betrachtet den geglückten Tag als Abenteuer, das "carpe diem" des Horaz' übersetzt er neu mit "pflücke den Tag", aus geglückten Augenblicken den "geglückten Tag zu pflücken", ist sein Anliegen. "Wie viel mehr wäre mit dem Tag zu machen, mit nichts als dem... Wenn ich es nicht jetzt mit dem Tag versuche, dann habe ich seine Möglichkeiten auf Dauer verspielt..."

        "Aeussere Ansicht der Roemischen Baeder zu Trier."

      . Lithographie, auf cremefarbenem Velin. Darstellungsgröße 38,5:50 cm, Blattgröße 53:66,5 cm. Literatur: Aus Nagler 2; Ausst. Katalog: Johann Anton Ramboux. Ansichten von Trier, 1991, Nr. 8, Abb. 62. - Vorzügliches Exemplar mit breitem Rand.. Blatt 7 aus der berühmten Folge "Malerische Ansichten der merkwürdigsten Alterthümer und vorzüglicher Naturanlagen im Moselthale bey Trier", 1824-1827 erschienen, erschienen mit dem Begleittext des Trierer Gelehrten und Bibliothekars Joh.H. Wyttenbach. Obwohl die Folge insgesamt in acht Heften mit je 4 Blättern erscheinen sollte, wurde sie nach dem vierten Heft eingestellt, wegen Mangels an Interesse. Die 4 Hefte sind nicht einmal in öffentlichen Sammlungen komplett vorhanden und sie gehören heute zu den großen Raritäten, die die deutsche Romantik auf dem Gebiet der Graphik hervorgebracht hat. Bemerkenswert ist das Urteil des großen französischen Malers J.L. David, dessen Schüler Ramboux war: "... ich muß zugeben, daß in der großen Zahl von Schülern, die ich ausgebildet habe, niemand in irgendeiner Zeit mehr Talent als der junge Ramboux gezeigt hat...; er ist geboren, um in dieser Kunst dem Lande, das ihn hervorgebracht hat, Ehre zu bringen."

        Deterministic nonperiodic flow.Lancaster: American Meteorological Society, 1963.

      First edition of the founding work of chaos theory. In discovering 'deterministic chaos,' Lorenz established a principle that "profoundly influenced a wide range of basic sciences and brought about one of the most dramatic changes in mankind's view of nature since Sir Isaac Newton," wrote a committee that awarded him the 1991 Kyoto Prize. "It would be fair to say that Lorenz began a scientific revolution with this paper which he and many others developed over the following years" (Mactutor). Extremely rare in original printed wrappers; this is the first copy we have seen on the market.<br/><br/> "It was a simple event in 1961 which led Lorenz to results which brought him worldwide fame. He was using a computer to investigate models of the atmosphere which he had devised involving twelve differential equations. Having obtained results from running his program, he decided that he would like to carry the calculations further. Rather than start the whole program again (for although he was using an up-to-date computer, it was painfully slow by later standards), he started the program in the middle of the calculation inputting the data as calculated by the machine at that middle point. After going away for a cup of coffee, he came back to see how the computer was getting on with the calculations. He was surprised to see that the computer had found significantly different answers over the range that it had calculated before. At first he thought it must be a hardware problem, since the software should come up with the same answer every time when given the same input data. Eventually he discovered that the data he had input to begin the second run had not been printed out to the same number of decimal places as the machine had stored, so the initial data was slightly different for the second run (differing in the fourth decimal place). He then set about trying to understand how a tiny change in the initial data could have such a major effect on the calculations. Lorenz had discovered chaos. <br/><br/> "Lorenz was not the first person to discover chaos. Poincaré had discovered chaos in the 1880s when studying the 3-body problem. However, Poincaré's discovery had not led to any significant developments. Now that Lorenz understood the significance of his discovery he wrote it up in the paper <i>Deterministic Nonperiodic Flow</i> and it appeared in the <i>Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences</i> in 1963. The abstract begins: <br/><br/> 'Finite systems of deterministic ordinary nonlinear differential equations may be designed to represent forced dissipative hydrodynamic flow. Solutions of these equations can be identified with trajectories in phase space. For those systems with bounded solutions, it is found that nonperiodic solutions are ordinarily unstable with respect to small modifications, so that slightly differing initial states can evolve into considerably different states. Systems with bounded solutions are shown to possess bounded numerical solutions.' <br/><br/> "The paper, like Poincaré's work 80 years earlier, had relatively little impact in the time immediately after it appeared. However, it has gone on to become one of the most quoted papers of all time. The set of equations and the attractors described by this set of equations are now called the 'Lorenz equations' and 'Lorenz attractors', respectively. It would be fair to say that Lorenz began a scientific revolution with this paper which he and many others developed over the following years. In 1972 he addressed the American Association for the Advancement of Science giving a talk with the title <i>Predictability: Does the Flap of a Butterfly's Wings in Brazil Set off a Tornado in Texas?</i> By encapsulating the essence of chaos theory in the title of his talk, Lorenz succeeded in capturing the public's imagination and the term 'butterfly effect' was soon the popular term for chaos" (Mactutor). <br/><br/> 4to (267 x 200 mm). In: Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences, pp. 130-141, Vol. 20, No. 2, March 1963. Original printed wrappers, faint surplus duplicate library stamp on upper cover, tiny chip in spine, a fine copy

        Bill Burke: "Four Faces at the Bayon, 1991" Vintage Toned Contact Print of Four Polaroid Negatives (10x8" Printed on AZO Paper)

      Bill Burke, Dorchester, Massachusetts 1991 - An original, vintage toned contact print of four Polaroid negatives. Printed in 1991 by Burke on AZO paper. Signed, titled, and dated in the lower black margin in ink by Burke. Stamped with the artist's Binh Foto logo on the reverse. Paper and image size 10 x 8 inches. CONDITION: Near Fine (small crease marks at corners, else flawless in image area). Since the early 1980s, Bill Burke has photographed extensively in Southeast Asia, focusing primarily in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. Burke's haunting and layered examination of the landscape and people is informed by the collective political and social conscience galvanized by the United States' lengthy occupation and annihilation of these regions before, during, and after the Vietnam War. His lifelong desire to connect personally and viscerally to the people he meets sets his work in an altogether separate category from most artists who photograph outside their circumscribed "experience." Neither overtly political nor proscriptive, Burke's work instead recognizes the personal is indeed political. Gone are the cultural stereotypes we have long seen in images of Southeast Asia. Instead we are able to experience the intensity of the individual through Bill Burke's idiosyncratic and careful observation. He obliterates the notion that the "documentary photograph" is a vehicle for "truth" and compellingly shows the viewer that it is always a form of personal or political propaganda.
