He also engraved medals for the Paris mint and painted murals for schools in France. He designed tapestries and painted approximately 200 enamels. Museums and libraries which own KrolÕs art works include the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris; the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; the British Museum; Houghton Library, Harvard; Bodleian Library, Oxford, and the Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco.Emmanuel Navon was born in Constantinople, Turkey into a distinguished family of scholars, moved to Paris in the 1920s and established his own business.

        Business, Government, and the End of Empire Malaya, 1942-1957

      Oxford University Press, Kuala Lumpur 1997 - Very often retiring colonial governments are accused of leaving behind a pliable neocolonial elite who will not interfere with existing business and other interests of the former colonists. (The model was trenchantly captured in Tarzie Vittachi's 'The Brown Sahib' about post colonial Ceylon.) In this work White looks at the preparations for the independence of Malaya to determine what, if any, safeguards the departing British put in place to ensure their business and other interests faced minimal disruption after independence. He also looks at the strategies employed by British controlled industry in the period. xxii and 331 pages with tables, figures, 20 black and white plates, appendices, a bibliography and an index.

        Bernd & Hilla Becher: Forderturme (conveyor Towers And Mineheads)

      Munich, Germany: Schirmer/Mosel(1997). First Edition / First Printing. As New in As New Dust Jacket. 196 pages. Collection of landscape-cum-place photographs. One of the most important photography books by Bernd and Hilla Becher. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the Softcover Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Bernd and Hilla Becher: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with pale gray titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Bernd and Hilla Becher. Brief Introduction by Klaus Bussmann. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Munich, Germany to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Bernd and Hilla Becher's "Forderturme". Conveyor Towers and Mineheads in Germany, France, Belgium, Great Britain, and the United States, photographed in the most rigorous, taxonomic, and severely beautiful manner. "Vastly influenced the international photography world within the past few decades. Their unique genre of photography is somewhere between topological documentation and art, lining up with the aesthetics of the Neue Sachlichkeit Movement of the 1920's of Karl Blossfeldt, August Sander, and Albert Renger-Patzsch" (Publisher's blurb). As the founders of the "Becher School" (AKA "Dusseldorf School"), they have, in turn, influenced several generations of documentary photographers and artists who have themselves become international superstars: Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff, Thomas Struth, Candida Hofer, Axel Hutte, Elger Esser, and even the Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky. "They shot only on overcast days so as to avoid shadows, and early in the morning during the seasons of Spring and Fall. Objects included barns, water towers, coal tipples, cooling towers, grain elevators, coal bunkers, coke ovens, oil refineries, blast furnaces, gas tanks, storage silos, and warehouses. At each site, the Bechers created landscape views of the entire plant, which set the structures in their context and showed how they relate to one another. They excluded any details that would detract from the central theme and instead set up comparisons of viewpoint and lighting through which the eye is led to the basic structural pattern, which is allied to the philosophy and practice of the New Topographics Movement" (Philip Gefter). The Bechers did not invent the grid (Mondrian did), but it is the origin and basis of their aesthetic and practice. The grid remains the most advanced iconography of Modernism. It is THE aesthetic, finally, of purity, of emotional self-regulation, the postponement of instant gratification in exchange for lasting aesthetic reward. Surely, no one (or duo) has pursued this single-minded aesthetic to its logical conclusion in photography as single-mindedly as the Bechers did. An absolute "must-have" title for Bernd and Hilla Becher collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in pencil on the front free endpaper by Bernd and Hilla Becher. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great art photography book. This is one of very few such double-signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online command as much as $800 even though they have serious flaws ("Near Fine", "Very Good"). A rare signed copy thus. 190 plates. Selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". Winners of the Erasmus Prize, the most prestigious European artistic prize, in 2002. Winners of the Hasselblad Award, the most prestigious photography award, in 2004. Two of the most important and influential photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BERND AND HILLA BECHER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3888148030.

        Silent Book

      Sao Paulo, Brasil: Cosac & Naify(1997). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 98 pages. Artist Book. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Miguel Rio Branco and Jean-Yves Cousseau: Small-size volume format in square shape. Pictorial hard boards with red titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Miguel Rio Branco. There is no text. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Miguel Rio Branco's "Silent Book". Some of the photographer's most stunning images, all of them in "bleed" format. Miguel Rio Branco's work has been hailed for the way it vividly depicts the quiet anguish, carnal sensuality, and explosive violence of Latin America. It is the Latin spirit (rather than the continent itself) that interests him, and he has photographed in Europe to capture this "Latinity". His sequencing of images has also been called "musical". It is not an accident that many of his books include a CD that is put together by him and is meant to be listened to while one views the images. "Silent Book" is the outstanding exception, his tribute to the deafening silence at the heart of his dissonant images. The violence depicted is ritualistic rather than actual (many of the photographs were taken in a boxing gym and at a bullfight) and its true purpose is not, "as some suggest, to incite violence outside, but to mitigate or break the cycle" (Martin Parr and Gerry Badger). A member of Magnum, it is hard to think of him as a documentary photographer. Indeed, his work is about the fundamentally subjective, non-documentary character of reality. The robust and simmering physicality of his images is the work of an artist/photographer who shows the underbelly of Roman Catholicism in all of its "Latinity, an extreme lyricism, contrasting affectivity and violence" (Adolfo Montejo). "My work has a lot to do with skin, for that is the surface connecting us to the world, in pleasure as much as in pain. Skin is a dialogue between outside and inside, a separation that is also a connection" (Miguel Rio Branco). A book of tremendous power and beauty, it pulsates with life and makes most other photography books look and feel lifeless. An absolute "must-have" title for Miguel Rio Branco collectors. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies that occasionally turn up online have all kinds of flaws: Rubbing, bumping, crushing, soiling, you name it. It's probably because it's a small and fragile volume. A rare copy thus. 75 color plates. Miguel Rio Branco's "Silent Book" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest artist/photographer of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MIGUEL RIO BRANCO, GERARDO SUTER, AND ALEX WEBB TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 8586374210.

Kaddish For A Child Not Born is a stunning recitation which ". . . resembles . . . other memorably declamatory fictions as . . . Dostoyevsky's Notes from the Underground. Yes, Kertesz's Kaddish is that good" (Kirkus).

        Fractals and Scaling in Finance: Discontinuity, Concentration, Risk. (INSCRIBED BY MANDELBROT TO NOBEL LAUREATE DONALD GLASER, WITH AN ALS.)

      Berlin, etc.: Springer, 1997. - First Edition. Original laminated boards. Near Fine. Inscribed: 'For Don Glaser/With the compliments of/Benoit Mandelbrot/Oct 97'. With: A.L.S. from Mandelbrot to Glaser. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1960 was awarded to Donald A. Glaser 'for the invention of the bubble chamber'. 'The physicist Donald Glaser and I often went to concerts together, and I followed his career closely. As an experimental high-energy physicist, he invented the bubble chamber, which experts in thermodynamics had declared impossible – against the laws of physics because it contradicted a statement in a book by established physicist Enrico Fermi. That statement was revealed to be incorrect, the chamber became a basic tool, and Glaser earned a Nobel for it. Only then did he reveal that he had 'converted' from physics to molecular biology. True to form, he attended the meeting on my seventieth birthday celebrating my versatility and regaled participants with tales of his' (Mandelbrot, The Fractalist: Memoir of a Scientific Maverick, 2014, p. 123).

      Rochester, New York:: Ulrike Stoltz,, [1997].. One-of-a-Kind. 5.25 x 8"; 20 pages. Rubber stamps, typewriter. Office paper. Bound in paper boards with sewn binding. Signed and dated by the artist. Ulrike Stoltz: "This is technically also a 'simple' book, like the others. But it was made at Visual Studies Workshop Rochester (we gave a workshop there) and thus it refers more to the process of making books in general. "The text is a 'translation' of a book with drawings that Uta made, into words (stamped letters), the second 'level' of the text comes by looking up the third word following each word in the dictionary (typewritten letters). "The idea of 'translation' is fundamental to our artwork." Uta Schneider: "A group of one-of's that we did during our first stay in the US – traveling books that refer in many ways to topics specific for this country. They can be seen as 'note books' – responding spontaneously to our impressions while we were traveling. The situation made us use simple materials, simple techniques, simple forms of book binding.

        Holland.

      El Cerrito, California:: Red Parrot Press,, 1997.. Edition of 25. 8.5 x 13.5”. Accordion structure. Text and images in linocut. Bound in black covered boards. Barbara Milman: "In 1994 I decided to interview Holocaust survivors and create a series of prints based on their stories. I then approached the San Francisco Holocaust Oral History Project, which graciously put me in touch with several survivors. Two of these individuals, Rita Kuhn (Berlin) and Gloria Lyon (Auschwitz), were the first of my interviewees. Subsequently, other subjects were suggested by friends and acquaintances, and I interviewed three more individuals: Peter Schrag (Escape), Alexander Groth (Warsaw), and Hielke Sheneman (Holland).... "It is my hope that telling these stories today, one-half a century after they happened, will make it less likely that similar stories will have to be told in the future." Interview with Hielke Sheneman: Working in the Dutch resistance. Barbara Milman: "At the time of the German invasion there were 140,000 Jews in Holland, and by the summer of 1943 the Germans estimated that there were approximately 20,000 Dutch Jews in hiding. About 18,000 of the hidden Jews survived the war, including at least two of the three Jews hidden by Hielke Sheneman and her family. Holland had more 'righteous gentiles' than any other European country. By 1990 over 3,200 Dutch citizens had been honored by the State of Israel for helping Jews escape the Holocaust, often by hiding them from the Nazis." Hielke Sheneman moved to Amsterdam and joined the underground. She delivered the underground newspaper, scavenged for food, and hid Jews. Sheneman: "When the Germans killed someone we put flowers on the sidewalk where they died. Toward the end of the war the killings increased so much that the sidewalks were always full of flowers.

Ernst Jünger (* 29. März 1895 in Heidelberg + 17. Februar 1998 in Riedlingen) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller, Philosoph, Offizier und Insektenkundler. Er ist vor allem durch seine Kriegstagebücher "In Stahlgewittern", durch Essays, phantastische Romane und Erzählungen bekannt. Mit seinem Frühwerk wird er der sogenannten Konservativen Revolution zugerechnet. Aufgrund seines radikalen, nationalistischen, anti-demokratischen und elitären Frühwerks gilt er einigen Kritikern als ein intellektueller Wegbereiter des Nationalsozialismus, während ihn andere höchstens dem Rand eines reaktionären Spektrums zurechnen. Von der nationalsozialistischen Ideologie distanzierte er sich in den frühen 1930er Jahren wegen des als geistlos empfundenen Totalitarismus der NS-Massenbewegung.

        Small Mama & Big Shoes (aus der Serie \"Art-Mama\") C-Print

       1997/2007. verso u. r. handschriftlich signiert \"Tatsumi Orimoto\", passepartouriert 55,6 x 45,2 cm (Bildmaß) Erster Teil einer ursprünglich zweiteiligen Arbeit aus Vorder- und Rückansicht. Die ganzfigurige, frontale Aufnahme der kleinen Frau irritiert und belustigt. Inmitten einer Straße auf einem Abflussdeckel steht sie in überdimensionalen Schuhen mit Gehstock in der rechten und Einkaufsbeutel in der linken Hand und blickt uns skeptisch an. Der Fotograf Tatsumi Orimoto, geb. 1946 in Kawasaki/Japan, widmet sich in seiner Serie \"Art-Mama\" seiner demenzkranken Mutter. Durch die Diskrepanz zwischen der kleinen, alten Frau und den absurd großen Schuhen zeigt er auf einfühlsame und humorvolle Weise die Traurigkeit und die Skurriliät der Krankheit und des Älterwerdens. Tatsumi Orimoto studierte am Institue of Art in Chicago und war 1972 Assistent von Nam June Paik, seit Ende der 70er-Jahre lebt und arbeitet er in Japan. Tatsumi Orimoto, Konzeptfotografie, Japan
