        The Real World of Manuel Córdova,

      [Sherman Oaks, California Ninja Press, 1995] One of 160 signed and numbered copies in the edition along with 18 lettered hors commerce. 3.5 inches by 13.25 inches. Opens to 15 feet. 47 pages. . Printed in hand set Samson Uncial on kakishibu, a persimmon-washed and smoked handmade paper from the Fuji Paper Mills Cooperative in Tokushima, Japan. The accordion-style book may be read in hand, stanza by stanza, or opened entirely to reveal all forty-three, fourteen-line stanzas. Fully extended, the book is fifteen feet long. The image of a river undulates alongside the poem while the setting of the poem itself mirrors the serpentine meanders of the river. The river is printed from photopolymer plates in five colors gradually intermingling one after another. The book's enclosure is a heavy cream-colored raw flax sheet, handmade at the Center For the Book Papermaking Facility at the University of Iowa. The enclosure is lined with kakishibu on which is printed a map of the world, the first to show the world's currents, drawn by Athanasius Kircher in 1665. The map is hand-tinted with pencil in five colors echoing the colors of the river. The enclosure is fastened with alum-tawed goat skin and bone. . This single, long poem by W. S. Merwin was inspired by events in the life of Manuel Córdova-Rios; extraordinary events that took place deep in the forest at the headwaters of the Amazon River in 1907. Both book and enclosure are housed in an acrylic slipcase. Fine. One of my favorites among her books is her edition of W.S. Merwin's long poem, The Real World of Manuel Córdova, finished in 1995. It is a poem about a river, printed as a river, so it becomes the map of a river, on paper that ripples like a river and is as richly colored as water gorged with red Amazonian mud. It is river of words and a map of the mind, but it is also, first and last, a book, and so the sheet, 15 feet long, folds into something as compact as a Javanese or Tibetan sutra" (Robert Bringhurst in The Art of the Book in California: Five Contemporary Presses).

        NEW YORK 1954-55: THE NEW AND REVISED EDITION

      Manchester, England: Dewi Lewis Publishing, 1995. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Very Good+/Very Good+ Dust Jacket.. Manchester, England: Dewi Lewis Publishing, 1995. Hardcover. Very Good+/Very Good+. First Edition/First Printing. 254 pages. New and Revised Edition of the photographer&#39;s "New York" classic. The latter is now widely regarded as one of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in English (the 1956 original was in French) and in the United Kingdom. Precedes and should nto be confused with all other susbequent editions. Published in small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. There is no American edition. The First Edition Thus is now very scarce. A brilliant production by William Klein: Black hard boards with white titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs, visual layout and design, and text by William Klein. Printed on glossy thick coated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Re-presents William Klein&#39;s single most celebrated book and masterpiece. Contrary to what many people think, this New Edition is not an exact replica of his 1956 classic. Apart from being almost different in layout to the original, it also contains dozens of new choices that have never been published before, a New Edition (rather than a facsimile) in the true sense of the term. The first of a ground-breaking City Series, which subsequently included "Rome", "Moscow", "Tokyo", "Torino", and finally, his beloved adopted city, "Paris + Klein", "Life Is Good For You And Good In New York: Trance Witness Revels" has been especially and immensely influential. William Klein began his career as a graphic designer, which is why his books are beautifully and meticulously produced, and more important, graphic design provided the basis for his raw, powerful, and obtrusively "in-your-face" photographic style. Every graphic designer wants his work not just to be noticed, but to invade your consciousness and implant itself there (this is why "art directors" of advertising agencies are graphic designers, and Klein himself worked in advertising). William Klein inaugurated a revolution in photography by breaking with the medium&#39;s taboos and traditions. He developed a radically new way to take pictures, perfecting his design-based style by incorporating elements of black humor, social criticism, satire, reportage, cinema, literature, and poetry, thereby creating a unique look that has since been so widely copied by other artists, graphic designers, and photographers (without credit being given to its creator) it is now part of our collective photographic vocabulary. There is no modern, "cutting-edge" magazine in the world that does not have an unmistakable trace of Klein&#39;s style. A "must-have" title for William Klein completists. <b><i> This title is now collectible in its own right. This is one of few copies of the New And Revised Edition still available online and despite its imperfection (loose, shaken binding, but all of the pages are intact) is still in Very Good condition overall. The 1956 Edition commands between $3500 and $12500 online, depending on condition. This is a lovely and accessible alternative. A very scarce copy thus. </b></i> William Klein&#39;s "Life Is Good For You And Good In New York: Trance Witness Revels" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A very good collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER WILLIAM KLEIN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1899235256.

In these volumes, "physics comes first, and formalism is shaped to serve it...an enormous amount of literature is digested and made manageable...it is a tribute to this trilogy that it leaves one hoping it will evolve into a tetralogy" (Journal of General Relativity and Gravitation).

        THE TALE OF THE WANDERING MONK

      New York: Limited Editions Club, 1995. Hardcover. Fine in a Fine slipcase. Setsuko Ideta. Folio (14" x 17") bound in a lush violet Japanese book-binding cloth. First Edition in English of this mystical masterpiece by the supreme romanticist of the Meiji period (1868-1912) which coincided with Japan&#39;s emergence from a feudal society. The "pouch binding"--or Fukuro toji--is the traditional Japanese with pages securely "bound" across an open spine with thread in a pattern that suggests a delicate Japanese screen and with the traditional title strip on the cover. The format has been modified so that the spine is on the left, Western style, rather than the right. Illustrated with four paintings by Setsuko Ideta, wife of Balthus, that were converted into wood blocks by Keiji Shinohara in his California studio. These were then aligned and overlaid to print the images on hand-made Japanese mulberry paper. Copy #78 of 300 numbered copies SIGNED by Setsuko. Monthly Letter laid in.

An excellent example of a leaf from Colines&#39;s press, with different font sizes and decorations. (Dispersed and Disbound 210).

        Al Aaraaf

      [Sherman Oaks:] Livre d'Art by D'Ambrosio, 1995 One of fifty copies printed letterpress on Lana Royal Classic paper. Signed on the title-page by D'Ambrosio. Trapezoidal shape binding in quarter blue morocco and mirrored panel boards, housed with the original trapezoidal two-part display stand and cover with further mirrored paneling. . Octavo. Printed letterpress in black and purple with woodcut backgrounds in various colors, several pages with embossed margins. A fine copy. Based on the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe's discovery of what later would be termed a supernova?Al Aaraaf (a star that arose upon the night in a brilliant flash, stayed for a short while, and then disappeared), Edgar Allan Poe created this metaphysical communication of fleeting beauty. In it he juggles time and space between reality and fantasy. I had no recourse but to do the same. However, I did start with a basic premise, which is that when one passes a mirror, one can see one's image and the surrounding scene. Once past the mirror, one disappears from the view but the reflection of the surrounding scene continues: a visual presentation of the term 'evanescence.' During the period of the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601), all heavenly bodies were given Arabic names. The structure of the book, therefore, had to evoke that background, along with the spirit of a beautiful thing arising and then passing forever from view. Hence, I created a mirrored polybhedron with unintellible but real script that evokes Arabic writing (but not Arabic) banding its throat..." (Joseph D'Ambrosio in A Memoir of Book Design 1969-2000).

        X-Ray Magazine, Vol. 1, No. 4

      San Francisco: Pneumatic Press. 1995. The fourth issue of this artist book/magazine, produced by Johnny Brewton. This issue features a Thompson contribution on the inside rear cover, and a cover photo shot through by Thompson with a .45. The image is of porn star Marilyn Chambers posing in the nude, holding a box of Ivory Snow detergent, which is illustrated with a photograph of her holding a young baby. Chambers starred in the ground-breaking porn movie Behind the Green Door, produced by San Francisco porn kings Jim and Artie Mitchell, longtime friends of Thompson. Their theater, the O&#39;Farrell, was considered the Carnegie Hall of pornography in those days, and Thompson made such regular visits there that at one time he had business cards made up reading "Hunter S. Thompson Night Manager the Mitchell Brothers Theater." Chambers&#39; posing as the idealized young mother for Ivory Snow before it was known that she made her living in porn was a scandal for the detergent company, which recalled hundreds of thousands of boxes and replaced Chambers&#39; photo with a painted image, although the woman still bore a striking resemblance to Chambers. This cover image is torn through with two jagged holes, and is stamped inside the cover: "Front Cover Shot With A .45 By Hunter S. Thompson." Unlike other copies of this image we have seen shot by Thompson, this one also bears lips prints, so both shot and kissed (owner of the lips not determined). Hand-assembled and velobound; fine. An extravagant production; the entire run of X-Ray Magazine consisted of ten issues. .

        Walasse Ting: Acrylic on Canvas 1994-1995

      Zeedjik 742, Digue, Belgium: Guy Pieters Gallery, 1995 Book. Illus. by Walasse Ting. Near Fine. Soft cover. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. [unpaginated] A lavishly produced exhibition catalogue of the Chinese-American artist Walasse Ting&#39;s work for the Guy Pieters Gallery with a letter, presentation inscription and original drawing by the artist. The book is a folio sized production in white stiff card with a thick illustrated dustjacket. Ting has drawn one of his signature parrots in black pen on the verso of the card wrapper, opposite the title page. The parrot is 35x20cm and beneath it is written: &#39;to Maureen Best Wishes Ting 1999&#39;. Loosely laid in is a double-sided A4 size letter written using the same pen to &#39;Dear Maureen&#39; and dated &#39;Amsterdam 3-10-1999&#39;. Writing on purple paper with silver highlights Ting asks about his correspondent&#39;s life, mentioning that &#39;I heard your News from Yves [Riviere], time to time&#39;. He speculates about a joint venture &#39;in business in fashion&#39; and dreams of the future: &#39;Maybe one day we are both getting famous and rich in blue sky and pink T-shirt.&#39; Ting closes with fond reminiscences of Maureen and asks her to &#39;Please drop a line Yours Walasseting&#39;. The book is very nearly fine with just a little toning to the edges of the paper and almost imperceptible wear to the edge of the jacket. Born in Shanghai Walasse Ting arrived in Paris and then New York at the height of the abstract expressionist movement. Though a friend of Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol he is remembered for his bold and vibrant paintings of women, parrots and flowers. As the artist himself puts it: &#39;When I see a beautiful woman, I see flowers, I have spent all my life painting to express a sense of freshness just like a new spring, and women, cats, flowers and birds in my paintings all represent the beauty in that freshness&#39;.

        SIGNED LETTER

      - Near Fine+ typed SIGNED letter from R.D. Wingfield on his personal stationary, dated 1995 talking about Frost books being published in US and about the TV series. "Monday 4th December 1995- Dear Dan Monte: Many thanks for your letter. As requested, I return the bookplates duly signed in my best writing. I do not find book writing easy, so have only written four FROST novels and these have all been published in paperback by Bantam in the States. HARD FROST has just come out over here in hardback and the first print run was completely sold out before publication. A specialised bindings, leather quarter bindings and limited to 85 copies, but at 48 (pounds) a time who (how) many people will want it? I stopped watching after the first three Frost TV films as I did not want the book Frost to be taken over by the TV Frost who is very different. I understand Colin Dexter has the same problem with Morse. I found the episodes I did watch slow, and very bland, although David Jason is a terrific actor. They have cleaned the character up far too much for my taste. Am doodling with another Frost book, but can't work up too much enthusiasm at the moment. Thanks for writing. have a great Christmas. Sincerely Rodney Wingfield". Comes with author hand-addressed return envelope. Letter folded twice. Scarce signed letter from Wingfield with persoanal view of TV adaptation of his work. Unique collectable item for the Wingfield-Frost collector. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
