        Angels, Anarchists & Gods [Signed by Thompson, Leary, Kesey, Baez, Byrne, and Toni Morrison]

      Louisiana State University Press, Baton Rouge 1996 - Photographs of authors, artists, musicians and politicians, from the last quarter of the 20th century, emphasizing "individuals whose lives and works nourish America's historic dream of freedom, justice and human decency. [and] are not afraid of controversy or challenging the status quo." Subjects of the photographs tend to be from the counterculture or the artistic fringes rather than the mainstream, although a number of them such as novelist Kurt Vonnegut, naturalist and writer Peter Matthiessen, and environmentalist David Brower, became important forces in the mainstream culture. Many of the key figures of the Beat generation are included, and a large number of artistic and musical innovators as well. This copy is signed by a number of the subjects of the photographs, including Timothy Leary, Toni Morrison, David Byrne, and by Douglas Brinkley, who provides an introduction. In addition, signed three times by gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson (once with "Fear Shock & Awe! 2003" and once with "Fear Bush/2003"); signed twice by counterculture icon Ken Kesey; and also signed by folk music legend Joan Baez. Corners slightly tapped, else fine in a fine dust jacket. A unique copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Photograph signed (vs. Joe Frazier)

      1996 - LEIFER, Neil. Large original color photograph signed. Manila, Philippines: no publisher, October 1, 1975 (printed September 3, 1996). Poster-sized photographic print (sheet measures 20 inches by 24 inches), signed beneath the image. $6800.Extraordinary poster-size color photograph of Smokin’ Joe Frazier taking a punishing straight right hand from Muhammad Ali during the late rounds of the “Thrilla in Manila,” one of only 24 signed by both Ali and Frazier and the photographer Leifer, from the total edition of only 350 copies printed.October 1, 1975 was the third time that Smokin' Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali clashed, each having beaten the other once before. The "Thrilla in Manila" was a highpoint in Ali's fascinating career, and is ranked by many as the greatest Heavyweight Championship fight of all-time. After a brutal, punishing battle, Joe Frazier could not answer the bell for the 15th round, and Ali won by TKO. This image, shot by renowned sports photographer Neil Leifer, perfectly captures the passion of that Titanic match. Leifer chronicled Ali throughout his career and captured many of the defining images of "The Greatest"â€" such as the present photograph. "There's no sport I enjoy photographing as much as boxing," admits Leifer. "The atmosphere of a big-time fight-the crowd, the fashion show, all the celebritiesâ€" is electric… Over the last 42 years, I've shot almost every major fight and every major fighter… But my favorite subject, no matter what the sport, was and still is Muhammad Ali." Number 66 of only 350 copies, Muhammad Ali signed only 35 copies, and of those 35 copies, only 24 are additionally signed by Frazier. Fine condition. An extraordinary multiply-signed photograph.

        F50.

      Modena Ferrari SpA 1996 - Limited edition number 95 of 1002, 4to., numerous colour illustrations and diagrams, publisher's carbon fibre composite boards, the upper cover mounted with the Ferrari silver metal horse, presentation letter to the recipient loosely inserted, original protective textured-card wrapper. This is the exceptionally rare edition (not to be mistaken for the more common sales brochure presentation book for the same model) and was only given to buyers of the Ferrari F50 model of which only 349 cars were made, the last being produced in July 1997. In consequence the limitation of the book is much lower; 'The book covers all aspects of the car and traces its development and engineering programme from inception to launch. As you can see, this unique book is bound in the carbon fibre composite, which is identical to the material that is used throughout the Ferrari F50.' Tim Watson, Sales and Marketing Manager, Ferrari UK. The Ferrari F50 is a mid-engined range-topping sports car, introduced in 1995, a two-door, two seat roadster with a removable hardtop. It has a 4.7 L naturally aspirated 60-valve V12 engine that was developed from the 3.5 L V12 used in the 1990 Ferrari 641 Formula One car. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Essays on Game Theory.

      Northampton, MA: Edward Elgar Publishing, 1996. First edition. Octavo, original boards. Signed and dated by the author, John F. Nash, Jr. 1 March 2011" on the title page. In fine condition, issued without a dust jacket. When John Nash was awarded the Nobel prize in economics in 1994, many people were surprised to learn that he was alive and well. Since then, Sylvia Nasar's celebrated biography A Beautiful Mind, has revealed the man. The Essential John Nash reveals his work--in his own words. This book presents, for the first time, the full range of Nash's diverse contributions not only to game theory, for which he received the Nobel, but to pure mathematics--from Riemannian geometry and partial differential equations--in which he commands even greater acclaim among academics. Included are nine of Nash's most influential papers, most of them written over the decade beginning in 1949. "Why are we so intrigued by the story of John Nash? We are curious to understand a person who proves theorems we are unable to fathom. We imagine the voices from another world he has heard. We ask where he was for 30 years during which he walked among us but wasn't here. We are frightened and we are attracted by this combination of 'crazy' and 'genius', an invitation for visiting the edge of our own minds." (Ariel Rubinstein)

        Infinite Jest: A Novel

      Boston: Little Brown, 1996. First edition of the author's magnum opus. Thick octavo, original half cloth. Signed by David Foster Wallace on the title page. Fine in a fine first state dust jacket with Vollmann misspelled on the back panel. In 2004, Chad Harbach declared that, in retrospect, Infinite Jest "now looks like the central American novel of the past thirty years, a dense star for lesser work to orbit." In a 2008 retrospective by The New York Times, Infinite Jest was described as "a masterpiece that?'s also a monster — nearly 1,100 pages of mind-blowing inventiveness and disarming sweetness. Its size and complexity make it forbidding and esoteric." Time Magazine included the novel in its list of the 100 best English-language novels published since 1923.

        Infinite Jest: A Novel.

      Boston: Little Brown, 1996. The uncorrected proof of the author's magnum opus. Thick octavo, original illustrated wrappers. Signed by David Foster Wallace. In near fine condition. Laid in is a publisher?'s response to Infinite Jest. In 2004, Chad Harbach declared that, in retrospect, Infinite Jest "now looks like the central American novel of the past thirty years, a dense star for lesser work to orbit." In a 2008 retrospective by The New York Times, Infinite Jest was described as "a masterpiece that?'s also a monster — nearly 1,100 pages of mind-blowing inventiveness and disarming sweetness. Its size and complexity make it forbidding and esoteric." In 2005, Time Magazine included the novel in its list of the 100 best English-language novels published since 1923.

(New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001).]. Fine in Near Fine box (a few stray surface marks; closed tears at two corners of lid). From the publisher: "The acclaimed Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century recognizes David LaChapelle's 1996 LaChapelle Land as its 101st book. And rightly so. The marriage of LaChapelle's vivid, high-octane images with graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo's supersaturated designs make for an astonishing physical object.'There's a tradition of celebrity portraiture that attempts to uncover the 'real person' behind the trappings of their celebrity. I am more interested in those trappings,' says LaChapelle. Indeed, he exaggerates the artificiality of fame and Hollywood culture in a head on collision of color, plastic, and whimsy. His photographs confront our visual taste and challenge our ideas of celebrity, all the while taking us on a roller coaster ride through his hyper-sensationalized galaxy. Lil' Kim becomes the ultimate status symbol, tattooed in the Louis Vuitton pattern. Madonna rises from pink waters as a mystical dragon princess. Pamela Anderson hatches out of an egg; and Alexander McQueen burns down the castle dressed as the Queen of Hearts.David LaChapelle's uncompromising originality is legendary in the worlds of fashion, film, and advertising. His images, both bizarre and gorgeous, have appeared on and in between the covers of Vogue, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Vibe and more. LaChapelle Land is fun park America gone surrealistically wrong - but in such an attractive way. David LaChapelle's photos have appeared in Vanity Fair, Details, French Vogue, The Face, Detour, The New York Times Magazine, Arena, and on MTV. The images [LaChapelle] creates are part sex, part satire, part fantasy--in a word, outrageous. This 'mind-blowingly lavish compilation' features portraits of Drew Barrymore, Leonardo DiCaprio, Faye Dunaway, Andy Warhol, Tupac Shakur, Smashing Pumpkins, and many more. Packaged in a beautiful box designed by the legendary Japanese graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo, this book offers a truly entertaining visual experience." Signed by Author.
