        WEST BAY

      London, England: The Rocket Press, 1997. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. London, England: The Rocket Press, 1997. Hardcover. Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. Collection of color photographs with accompanying original poems, presented as an Artist Book. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. Limited Edition of 250 numbered and signed copies. A brilliant production by Martin Parr and Jonathan Stephenson: Oversize-volume format in oblong shape. Pictorial cloth boards with titles stamped on spine, as issued. Photographs by Martin Parr, each of which is delicately tipped onto the page. Text by various poets. Preface by Jonathan Stephenson. The photographs were scanned from the original color prints made by Peter Fraser and printed using UV inks and varnish by Jackson Wilson Leeds. The text is on Mohawk Superfine paper by John Purcell Paper London and printed by B. A. S. Printers Over Wallop. The binding in Bognor Deckchair Canvas was supplied by Oddies Textiles and made by The Fine Bindery Wellingborough. The typesetting in Sabon and Optima Medium was created by Rocket Press. Blue cloth slipcase with titles stamped on both sides. Without DJ, as issued. To mark the book&#39;s auspicious publication, a selection of the photographs was exhibited at the Rocket Gallery London from July through September 1997. Presents Martin Parr&#39;s piquant yet poignant portraits of the seaside resort called West Bay. His final selection was shown to eight poets, some of whom had also visited the resort. The poems therefore mark their responses both to the place itself and to Parr&#39;s photographs of it. The poets include Philip Gross, Fergus Allen, Kate Clanchy, Roger McGough, Alice Oswald, Sophie Hannah, Vicki Raymond, and Geoffrey Hoare, contributing 23 poems in all. These complement Parr&#39;s "ability to tune in to the idiosyncrasies of contemporary British culture. Together the photographs and poems open up horizons beyond West Bay and form a perceptive commentary on class, taste, fears, and aspirations" (Jonathan Stephenson). Perhaps, and that is to be expected of the leading British ironist/photographer. But it must also be said that the images in "West Bay" are among Martin Parr&#39;s most beautiful. His observer&#39;s detachment is deepened, not weakened, by a lyricism that pervades the work. "West Bay" shows the range of his astringent sensibility, that it has a more lyrical, even sentimental side. For one thing, the formal use of color, a Parr trademark, is deployed using a less saturated, more muted, and more subdued palette that people familiar with Parr&#39;s work will find unexpectedly moving. It is not possible to understand the art and photography of our time without taking stock of Martin Parr&#39;s work and achievement. A "must-have" title for Martin Parr collectors. <b><i>This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, and is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in blue pen by Martin Parr. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and despite the publisher&#39;s flaw (slight rubbing on slipcase) is still in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 24 color plates. The most influential and most important living British photographer. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MARTIN PARR TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

      Sao Paulo, Brasil: Cosac & Naify, 1997. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Sao Paulo, Brasil: Cosac & Naify, 1997. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 98 pages. Artist Book. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The first and only edition. Published in a very small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The book is now very 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 thick coated stock paper in Italy to the very highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents some of the artist/photographer&#39;s most stunning images, all of them in "bleed" format. Miguel Rio Branco&#39;s work has been praised (and criticized) 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 no accident that many of his books include a CD that 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 contributing 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 lifeless. A "must-have" title for Miguel Rio Branco and photography book collectors. <b><i> This is an Import title and is now very highly collectible. This is one of very few copies still available online and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. Copies turn up occasionally online but have major flaws. A very rare copy thus. </b></i> 75 color plates. Miguel Rio Branco&#39;s "Silent Book" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest living artist/photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MIGUEL RIO BRANCO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 8586374210.

        The World Crisis (first abridged and revised edition)

      Here is a rarity.  This is the first abridged edition of Churchill's monumental and acclaimed history of World War I in the original first printing dust jacket - one of the most striking and rare dust jackets in the Churchill canon.  The front face of the yellow-tan dust jacket features a full-length, half-tone photograph of Churchill striding, in top hat and tails with walking stick in hand.  The rear cover features a smaller head and shoulders image of Churchill in the uniform of the South African Light Horse (set amid an advertisement for A Roving Commission).  Writing in 1997, Churchill expert Richard Langworth said of this dust jacket "I know of only two or three of these in existence..."  We know of a few more than that, but certainly a small number survive and very few collectors are able to own them.  This first abridged and revised edition is not simply an abridgement, but a genuine first edition in its own right; Churchill made significant revisions and added a new introduction and an entire new chapter on the Battle of the Marne.  Moreover, the U.S. edition preceded the British, making it the true first edition.  The copy offered here is a remarkably complete survivor, fine in a very good dust jacket.  The navy cloth binding is bright, clean, and square with sharp corners and bright spine gilt.  We note only a small blemish at the rear hinge.  The contents are beautifully clean and tight with no spotting.  The sole previous ownership mark is a tiny bookshop sticker only lightly affixed to the rear pastedown.  All of the extensive maps and charts are present and pristine.  Even the untrimmed fore edge is immaculate.  Searching for flaws, we can report only light dust soiling to the top edge.  The dust jacket is unclipped, clean, and highly complete, still bearing the original $5 price on the front flap, spine, and front face.  Trivial losses are confined to a fractional chipping to a maximum depth of 1/8 inch at the spine ends and corners.  The jacket is also notably clean.  The sole notable flaw is what likely resulted in this jacket being so well-preserved - a vertical crease at the spine delineating some differential toning, with the left 40 percent of the spine darker than the right.   It seems likely that the jacket was once folded along this crease and stored, likely with the toned side of the spine exposed to sun.  Despite this forgivable flaw, this is a highly complete and desirable survivor.  The jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.  Additional images available upon request.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.5.a, Woods/ICS A31(ba.1), Langworth p.115

        The Great Mystery

      American Indian Mystery Press, 1997. First Edition/Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine in Fine Archival Case. Tight, bright and unmarred. Full Japanese linen cloth, black Niger goatskin label, gilt and scarlet lettering; matching tray case. 4to. np. Illus. (color plates). Numbered limited edition, this being 25 of 60. Twenty-three color printed etchings by Bogardus. Text printed by Arthur Larson, Horton Tank Graphics. Bound by Gray Parrot. "The Great Mystery is a collaboration between the artist Peter Bogardus, who made the etchings, and Russell Means, who composed a handwritten text that was been relief-printed. The initial concept for the project occurred during a visit by the artist to the Oglala Lakota Indian Reservation at Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Allowed access to tribal archives, Mr. Bogardus was able to study many original photographic references. The iconography in these ancient images of the then still free Plains peoples provided inspiration for the etchings. At the same time the reality of late 20th century reservation life served to temper any tendency to romanticize the past. Thus the etchings are a vehicle for revisiting history while the text by Russell Means connects this history to the present, the "now time". Mr. Means is an Oglala Lakota and one of the founders of the American Indian Movement; he has been instrumental in activating pride among his people and awareness of their condition among the people of the larger US society and beyond. He is renowned as an orator. His captions to the etchings are contemporary responses to the history of his peoples&#39; contact with those who came from Europe. The extended prose is based on a traditional prayer on the horizon at dawn. The Great Mystery is one name for the Creator.

        Pomegranate. Mezzotints by Judith Rothchild

      Editions de l'eau [Reynes: Editions de l'eau. 1997]. One of 50 copies all on Hahnemuhle paper, each numbered and signed by Fainlight and Rothchild on the colophon: 14 deluxe copies with an original drawing and page of manuscript, 28 regular copies (this copy), 8 hors commerce. In addition, there were 40 additional copies of the mezzotints editioned. Page size: 15-1/2" x 10-1/2". Bound: loose in original wrappers, housed in red publisher's slipcase, paper over boards. New. With mezzotints printed by the artist, Judith Rothchild, the text was printed by Albert Woda, the publisher, who also designed the layout. This is Judith Rothchild's first livre d'artiste. Noted poet Ruth Fainlight has contributed a moving poem using the imagery of pomegranates and its association with the Greek myth of Persephone and Demeter to pose questions about the life process, aging, revisiting our youth, death and rebirth. Ms. Rothchild's pomegranates are rich and warm, almost supernaturally lit images -- always in pairs -- exposing its complicated fruit. The artist usually works in the pastel medium, using vibrant strong colors, usually still lifes, bringing life to inanimate objects with magical light. Encouraged by master engraver, Albert Woda, to work in mezzotints, Ms. Rothchild has created six haunting images to perfectly complement Ms. Fainlight's poem. See illustration.7 See an Image.
