        ORIGINAL DRAFTS offering insight into the development of the SCREENPLAY for ANTONIONI'S proposed film "JUST TO BE TOGETHER" written by MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI and RUDY WURLITZER. Together with related documents and material.

      Paris & Los Angeles, CA: Sunshine & Enchanted Mountains, 1986 through 1997. [1997]. [1997]. - - 10 original drafts and treatments of the screenplay by Michelangelo Antonioni & Rudy Wurlitzer demonstrating the cinematic development of Antonioni's 1974 short story "Two Telegrams". The project was promoted by the French producer & director Stephane Tchalgadjieff. Antonioni had originally sought to produce the film with Garance Film in 1986, the rights being subsequently transferred to Tchalgadjieff's Sunshine Films. The story of Louise, an architect, who divides her affections between her husband Robert and her lover "H" was originally titled "Two Telegrams" and credited as a "Screenplay by Michelangelo Antonioni and Rudy Wurlitzer". The archive includes an early draft titled "Two Telegrams / From a story by Michelangelo Antonioni / Screenplay by / Michalangelo Antonioni / and / Rudy Wurlitzer". The screenplay dives right in as the camera fades on to a street scene in the "downtown Business area of a large city" where a business man "H" "maneuvers his gray Chrysler toward an underground garage." As he turns into the garage, Louise driving a white Mercedes passes him heading in the opposite direction. This 87-page draft is followed by a subsequent 78-page draft in which the opening scene is described as a "Flashback" with the action taking place in a "Sports Arena" where Louise and her husband Robert are watching an ice hockey game between the Wolverines and the Memphis Rockets. The scene in the garage described in the previous draft is here described on page 7 following a "dissolve". The screenplay is now titled "Just To Be / (two telegrams) / un film de Michelangelo Antonioni / scenario de / Michelangelo Antonioni / Rudy Wurlitzer" with Stephane Tchalgadjieff's "Sunshine" production company credited at the bottom. A third draft of the screenplay again opens with Robert and Louise attending the hockey game at a sports arena. A fourth draft now called a "work in progress" foregoes the earlier opening scenes. The opening sequence takes place in the evening at Robert and Louise's home near Paris. Wurlitzer's more lyrical style manifests itself in the last line which, up to now, had read: "The street, the entire city, is dark", now reads: "The street, the entire city, is shrouded in darkness". Rudy Wurlitzer muses over, not only the setting for the opening scene, but also Robert's profession. In a typed letter which was likely sent as a fax or e-mail to Michelangelo Antonioni and his wife Enrica, Rudy confesses that "I've been thinking about Robert and what his business might be. I'm not quite satisfied with him being the owner of a basketball team as the script seems too loaded with sports (polo, golf etc.) and basketball is so much of a media cliche these days. It seems to me that Robert comes from old inherited money and so his business might involve many different agendas." He also suggests that "He would also have a portable phone." and thus could be anywhere when conversing with Louise, quoting possible dialog from a phone conversation between Robert and Louise. He concludes: "Also, I think it might be more interesting to have Louise's secretary, Martha, (to be played by Angelica Huston) be Louise's partner. This would give the two women more equality and candor and also be more contemporary in terms of LA life. Two women up against what is essentially a male dominared profession." Another draft now titled "Michelangelo Antonioni's / Just To Be Together / (provisional title)" with the screenplay credited to Michelangelo Antonioni and Rudy Wurlitzer, is indicated to be a "(second draft - work in progress)" and further states that it is "based on an original story from the book: 'That Bowling Alley On The Tiber'." A one page preface describing Antonioni's process of film-making precedes the script: "The attached screenplay is not the final draft, and must be taken as a work in progress. Details and background elements may be added. Michelangelo Antonioni's traditional method has always been to improve his script right thr [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Three Poems from Fleurs du Mal (Flowers of Evil).

      Limited Edition Club, 1997. - 4 Photogravures by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Limited Edition, 1997, 83 of 300, Signed by Henri Cartier-Bresson, The book and slipcase are in FINE condition. The book has been signed by Henri Cartier-Bresson on the limitation page. This is a signed limited edition of "Three Poems from Fleurs du Mal (Flowers of Evil)" published by the Limited Edition Club in 1997 with a limitation of 300 copies this being number 83. From the publisher: "When Baudelaire published the first edition of Les Fleurs du mal in 1857, the subject matter and the style touched off a scandal. The resulting outcries from some critics and his defense by others led to Baudelaire's trial for obscenity. He was ordered to pay a 300 franc fine and exclude six poems from the book. (Even his mother thought the poems were blasphemous.) Today, we can appreciate how Baudelaire extended the subject range of poetry. Inspired by Baudelaire¿s images, Henri Cartie-Bresson has chosen three poems from Les Fleurs du mal to illustrate with four photogravures. Among those banned in 1857 was "Les Promesses d'un visage" ("What a Pair of Eyes Can Promise.") In the original French, with the English translation on facing pages." Measuring approximately 14.5" by 13.5", the book is hand bound in full red cloth with printed paper label inset housed in a matching cloth clamshell box lettered in black. To produce the photogravures, each of Cartier-Bresson's negatives was transferred to a copper plate using gelatin-coated paper. This photogravure process is complex and painstaking but can reveal details unseen in the negatives. Gravure plates were made and the prints editioned by Jon Goodman all on hand-made paper. These are the only Henri Cartier-Bresson's nude studies published to date. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Forum Of Trajan In Rome: Study Of Monuments, 3 Vol Set

      University Of California Press 1997 - Berkeley. 1997. University Of California Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Hardcover. No Dustjacket. . hardcover. ISBN: 0520074939. inventory # 35194. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Last, largest, and most splendid of the early imperial forums, the Forum of Trajan (A.D. 112) was the acknowledged showplace of ancient Rome. Ammianus Marcellinus called the Forum ‘a construction unique under the heavens, as we believe, and admirable even in the unanimous opinion of the gods.’ Yet, despite its formidable ancient reputation, the Forum of Trajan has only once in the present century been the subject of a close study. This three-volume publication, the result of twenty-five years of labor, is the first comprehensive study ever undertaken. It includes a history of the site, an examination of all previous scholarship, a modern reconstruction of it in beautiful architectural renderings, and more. The Forum suffered a harsh fate. Its buildings probably collapsed during the earthquake of A.D. 801; from the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries, the site was quarried for its marble. In recent times, none of the modern archaeological excavations, from the first French investigations of 1811-14 through the great campaign mounted by the Fascist Government of Italy in 1928-34, has ever been properly published. Today some of the monuments–among them the three triumphal arches through which visitors entered the Forum and the West Colonnade and Hemicycle–are still buried more than sixteen feet below the level of modern streets. Others are now completely cleared. After describing the Forum as a whole–its construction, history, use in antiquity, destruction, and excavations–Packer focuses on the buildings, the essential architectural texts for all further study. He discusses the largest building in the Forum, the law court known in antiquity as the Basilica Ulpia. Illustrations document the most important architectural elements and the present state of the site. Restored plans, sections, and elevations in both color and black and white depict Packer’s reconstructions as well as those of previous scholars. Four exterior and interior views of the principal buildings, restored in color, provide lively visual impressions of the spatial effects and detailing. For scholarly consultation, a catalogue raisonné of the major surviving fragments, twelve appendices that discuss technical problems involved in the reconstructions, and microfiche with 416 illustrations are included. Volume I features 157 illustrations, including significant general photographs of the site, historical photographs of the excavations of 1928-34, new photographs of architectural fragments, and eleven full-color reconstructions of the excavated buildings. Volume II contains most of the remainder of the 859 illustrations, among them new photographs of the site and reproductions of drawings made by scholars and architects of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. A folder attached to the back cover houses the microfiche. The Portfolio volume holds thirty-five drawings, twenty-four in black and white that include a plan made after the excavations of 1928-34 and a new site map prepared in 1986-87, and eleven three-color technical reconstructions of the excavated buildings. PRODUCTION: Meticulous care has been taken with the design and production of these volumes, only 1,000 sets of which will be made. The text of this book is printed on 90-pound sheets of Mohawk Superfine specially milled for this project. This paper is not only acid-free, but also alum- and rosin-free, with a pH level above 7.5 and an alkaline buffer that will neutralize any acidity that might develop in handling or storage.

        The Sonnets to Orpheus

      The Limited Editions Club, New York 1997 - Number 20 of 300 copies, elephant folio size, [116] pp., signed by Balthus, with LEC letter. Written by Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926), "The Sonnets to Orpheus" were penned as a funeral monument to Vera, the daughter of a friend. Though he had only met the girl a few times, he was shocked by the untimely death of the gifted young dancer, and used the address to Orpheus as a symbol for artistic expression, demonstrating how it's possible to view death as a continuation of life rather than a termination point. Rilke's original German is presented on facing pages to the English translations, and accompanied by two illustrations created in tribute to his childhood friend, by Balthus. Michael and Winifred Bixler planned the format at their plant in Skaneateles, N.Y., and the Balthus water-color drawings have been metamorphosed into multi-color woodcuts by Keiji Shinohara, a master Japanese blockmaker who resides in Malden, Massachusetts, where he printed the entire edition of the illustrations. (N.B., above info from the LEC newsletter.)___DESCRIPTION: Original quarter goatskin and linen covered boards, with letterpress printed title label affixed to the upper board, fore-edge and tail-edge uncut, two woodcuts (frontispiece and at the beginning of the second part), title page in aubergine and black, each poem presented with the German on the left and the English translation facing it on the right; set in Monotype Bembo, handmade Kozo Uwazen paper, elephant folio size (16 3/8" by 13 1/8"), unpaginated [approx. 116] pp., signed by Balthus. The Limited Editions Club "Newsletter" which functions as a prospectus loosely laid in. Housed is a matching suede lined linen fall-down-back box with a leather title label inlaid to the backstrip.___CONDITION: An absolutely stunning copy, the aesthetic choices made by Shinohara divine the perfect home for both Rilke's poetry and the two illustrations by Balthus, all in like new condition, and housed in a flawless case. ___POSTAGE: Please note that due to size and weight additional postage may apply; please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.
