      (KRUGER, BARBARA) (COOPER, DENNIS). Cooper, Dennis & Barbara Kruger. FRISK: A NOVEL - SIGNED BY DENNIS COOPER WITH A UNIQUE ORIGINAL ARTWORK BY BARBARA KRUGER. New York: Grove Weidenfed & Grove Press, 1991. First Edition. 8vo. Boards in Illustrated Jacket. Artist's Book. Near Fine/Fine. 128pp, no illustrations. Published in 1991, "Frisk" is acclaimed writer Dennis Cooper's third novel - a graphically sexual and violent first-person narrative of a gay serial killer. To raise money towards the 1995 independently produced film based on the book, the author asked thirty artists (including Mike Kelley) to each "alter a copy of the novel in whatever way they wished". These artworks were then sold at a special fund-raising auction. This example was contributed by Barbara Kruger - one of the most influential American artists of the last three decades. For it she cut up and collaged a color photocopy of the book's dust jacket to the rear flyleaves, and rubber-stamped her name in crimson ink in her iconic Futura Bold Italic typeface fourteen times on the verso of the rear free endpaper. This example was acquired directly from Dennis Cooper who has BOLDLY SIGNED the title page in black ink, and provided a handwritten letter noting the details of its creation. A most handsome copy in dust jacket of this unique altered book cum Barbara Kruger artwork showing a bit of fugitive glue, soiling and ink to the endpapers as a result of its transformation.

        Visitor From The Underground - Limited Edition Print (Signed)

      1991. Print. New. Lithograph print by Carl Barks on Acid-free Paper. SIGNED NUMBERED PRINT. Size: 10" x 8" (254mm x 203mm). Visitor From Underground was Another Rainbow's first Carl Barks money bin lithograph -- large-size or miniature -- in eight years when it was released in 1991. It was an instant success and quickly sold out. It was also the only miniature money bin litho. In The Fine Art of Walt Disney's Donald Duck by Carl Barks, a slip-cased coffee table book, Barks historian Barbara Boatner wrote the following text about Carl's painting and what was happening in a Visitor From Underground: "Worse than the Beagle Boys are little varmints that nibble thousand-dollar bills or squirrel away round, shiny objects … but Scrooge's helpers are too tired from a long day in the south forty to even notice an intruder. "In the centre of the painting is one of Scrooge's many lanterns, which, Barks explains, the old miser used ‘because he owned all those oil wells. He wouldn't pay an electric bill when he could light his money with some very cheap kerosene that he already owned … unless, of course, he owned the electric company, too.' The money bin scenes, Barks continues, are popular in part ‘because they give people the feeling of looking right into the source of all the wealth in the world.' For the ducks who have to till Scrooge's fields, though, the three cubic acres of cash act mainly as a mild soporific. "In the fall of 1973, shortly after the sale of this painting, its current (and present) owner gathered with the Barks and several others at the nearby home of a friend. Late in the evening Carl got the collector off to the side and confided -- with a twinkle in his eye -- that ‘Visitor From Underground' isn't the real name of that painting. I just put that title on there because I had to call it something. Its real name is, When the **** Hit the Fan.' Obviously, a story for posterity. Visitor From Underground and text about the painting are printed as a double-page spread in the Fine Art Book (plate 41, pages 150-151, chronological number 51, Barks' 12th oil painting from 1973). Visitor From Underground was printed in continuous tone by the Black Box of Chicago and is a limited signed edition of 595.

        DIE MONOGRAMMISTEN. FORTGESETZT VON A. ANDRESEN UND C. CLAUSS

      Nieuwkoop: HES & DE GRAAF. 1991. 8vo, cloth. xxviii,1088; 1121; iv,1143; 1155; 436; (Index) iv,109 pages.. 5 volumes (the index bound at the end of the fifth volume). Reprint of the 1858 edition published in München. An unsurpassed reference work of permanent value, to identify artists who sign themselves only by their monogram or similar device. Literally thousands of them were book illustrators, hence the work's importance for books. Nagler begins by giving an exact facsimile of the monogram(s); this is followed by the artist's name, his biography, and then a list of his works, frequently including a complete bibliography of books illustrated by him. Arrangement is alphabetical. The total number of main entries is 14,961; the number of monogram facsimiles must be well over 30,000. Sales rights: Available outside North America from HES & DE GRAAF Publishers.

A collection of twelve of the best of Bierce's Civil War stories, originally published in 1892.

He rages at the vanities and waste of war. But as he does, he is also exhilarated by it and is unashamed of his emotion. Were he to offer us unrelieved bloodshed, or unalloyed patriotism, we would not be reading him today" (Yolla Bolly Press).

        Group of four letters to historian and biographer, John Lukacs: TLS, 2 ALsS, ANS

      Original manuscripts. Very Good. (1) TLS, 1-1/2pp, single-spaced, quarto, from 1170 Fifth Avenue, New York, November 7, 1991. In part: "....Your DUEL is a stunning piece of scholarship....You have done a masterpiece of historical writing. Only someone who has toiled to compose a book can perceive the art with which this extraordinary narrative is shaped....The scope, too, is remarkable....One could extract your judgments, characterizations, estimates, and conclusions and make a small book of aphorisms....Present-day Americans do not understand any politics but their own....On the point of Roosevelt's long uncertainty, I happen to have some information you could not know, because it has not yet been published. In 1941 FDR used Rene de Chambrun as propagandist....Yours with admiration and affection, Jacques." (2) ALS, 1p, octavo, in blue ink, from his Fifth Avenue address, Nov 12 /94. "....This autumn has been a series of ailments....It was good to know that you've finished your extraordinary book. Your rate of production is really splendid, and the quality of the product certainly deserves the recognition that was expressed in the Pennsylvania History Magazine. Doesn't this latest work of yours qualify for the you-know-what prize?...Affectionate regards, Jacques." (3) ALS, 1p, 12mo, in blue ink, Nov 12/95. "The letters are very good indeed. Coming from academics in a hoity-toity university, they are a tribute to your art & scholarship....I hope you can use the approving words to get a publisher....Mississippi is not at all a bad Press....My health & energy are returning slowly....All the best, Jacques." (4) ANS, 1/2p, handwritten note on an engraved announcement, from San Antonio, Mar. 9, 2007. "...Thank you for your fine book about G.K. [George Kennan]. It does him full justice. He was a good & great man. Trust you are well. Ever, Jacques." [This note is especially poignant in that it is handwritten on an announcement titled "Jacques Barzun to his Friends," telling them that a "lack of finger control" prevents him from answering their letters.] Barzun, recently deceased, was a French-born American historian of culture and ideas, winner of America's Presidential Medal of Freedom, and knight of the French Legion of Honor. Along with his friends and correspondent John Lukacs, Barzun helped establish the modern discipline of cultural history.
