        Samuel Beckett's - "Waiting for Godot" at "The Old Vic" - Theatre, London,1997 - "Ben Kingsley" as "Estragon" and "Alan Howard" as "Vladimir".

      London. 1997 - Original, Vintage Photograph on archival paper. Image: 25 cm x 20 cm / Framed: 44,5 cm x 39 cm. From the library of irish photographer John Minihan. With John's copyright-stamp verso. Signed and titled by John Minihan. Beautifully framed. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality; 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing, 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

        Teenage Lust

      Taka Ishi Gallery, Japan, 1997. Revised Edition. Softcover. Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. CLARK, LARRY. Teenage Lust, Japan: Taka Ishi Gallery, 1997. Quarto, first Japanese edition (preceded by a 1983 English-language edition), unpaginated with 98 pages of photos, mostly duotone, white illustrated wraps. This is the expanded version with an additional 13 pages of photos and a handwritten page of text by Clark. That's in English, as is all the captioning. The photographer's 23-page essay has been translated into Japanese. Clark told Roth (The Book of 101 Books) that the first edition was incomplete and he prefers this one. See Roth pp. 244-5 and Bertolotti Page 260. Clark called this an autobiography although he used people who were about 10 years younger than he, growing up under the same circumstances he did in the Southwest U.S. It's a story of sex, drug abuse and aimless living, with the final part of the book shot among young male hustlers on 42nd Street in New York City, back when it was a center of prostitution. Clark had to finance first publication himself because the original publisher wanted deletions he wouldn't make. Condition of this book: Near fine, very slight toning to the edges and wraps. First edition of the work in this format and binding, and/or set or series. Size: Quarto. Text is in Japanese. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Photography; United States; 1970s; Japanese Language; Erotica. ISBN: 0938262149. ISBN/EAN: 9780938262145.

        The Quest for Bloods; A Study of the Victorian Penny Dreadful

      Privately Printed, 1997. Edited and with additional notes on the literature of the byways by Ayresome Johns. A posthumous publication, privately printed. Printer and binder unacknowledged. This is a limited edition with an extremely small limitation. The copyright page states, "First edition. Of this edition, a small number of copies, signed by the editor, are issued with one or more of the original penny numbers. Of the signed issue, this is number three of four copies." The "three" and "four" are written in a neat blue ink hand. Also in that same hand, "Orig art for p 199 Varmey the Vampire # 99 Sweeney Todd # 45 and proof of text only # 10." Note, however, that the editor's signature is nowhere to be found. Black buckram binding, with crisp gilt-stamped titling to the spine. Unbumped spine head and tail, with sharp corners. A few tiny and scarcely noticable bumps along the top edge of the boards. Very clean binding. Text block firmly bound in. 11.75 x 8.25 inches. xii and 320 numbered pages, with 12 full-page or 2/3 page B&W plates by W. T. Horton. An immensely clean copy, and quite tight. Presumed unread. Lovely full-pictorial dust jacket, duotone on a canary yellow background. Unsunned and unclipped. DJ with just a trace of rubbing to the rear wrapper. DJ protected by a clear Mylar over-wrapper. A Near Fine copy in a Near Fine DJ. Rare in any condition. The collector is most unlikely to encounter a finer copy, if any copy at all. With thanks to the Edward Lloyd website for the following: "This study concentrates on the earlier period of the penny dreadful: sensational fiction in penny parts written principally for the Victorian lower classes, at a time when they were flocking to the towns in search of work and prosperity. The term 'penny dreadful' is used generally to apply to all such fiction, from its roots in chapbooks and the gothic novel in the 1830s, to its decline into schoolboy adventure stories up to about 1910. The term 'penny blood' applies to the earlier literature discussed here, written for adults, and filled with criminal, supernatural and melodramatic events. The length of stories depended on their success week by week, ranging from 6 to 206 instalments. The best remembered is The String of Pearls (Sweeney Todd, 1846-47). He also brought vampires, already popular among the literati, to a mass market readership (Varney, 1845-47). These two and several others were re-issued later. Weekly numbers were also made available as a compendium at a higher price and some were made into bound volumes. I must acknowledge the contributions of earlier writers, however prone to error, for all have some scarce and vital information to offer. Frank Jay in Peeps into the Past, 1918-21, and elsewhere, made the first systematic attempt to record basic facts about bloods and the periodicals in which they were serialised. Slips he left as markers still remain in volumes in the British Library's collection. Arthur E. Waite (1857-1942) wrote a rather supercilious account of the literature in articles in Walford's Antiquarian Magazine, Vols. XI & XII, 1887, and in the 1920s recorded his researches in The Quest for Bloods with checklists of titles, unpublished until 1997.". First Edition. Buckram. Near Fine/Near Fine. Illus. by Horton, William Thomas. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Limited Edition.

        The God of Small Things [Typescript]

      (n.p.) [ca. 1997], (n.p.) - Tapebound typescript of this Booker Prize-winning first novel. 248 pages, 8-1/2" x 11", bound in printed light green cardstock covers, and shot from word-processed sheets rather than typeset ones. No indication of publisher (which, in the U.S., was Random House). After the considerable success of this book in England, where it was reprinted numerous times, Random House decided to do a glossy advance reading copy in pictorial wrappers. Consequently, few copies of the standard proof were done. We are aware of another, "in-house" state of the advance copy, which, if we remember correctly, was also 8-1/2" x 11" tapebound sheets, but typeset and in blue covers and listing the publisher on the inner pages. Uncommon; we've never seen this issue of the book before. Unmarked, but from the library of Peter Matthiessen. Near fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      (No place: William B. Ewert. 1997). First. First separate edition. 12mo. Frontispiece by Thomas Bewick. Red wrappers. Fine. One of 10 unnumbered ad personam copies printed on special paper, handsewn in wrappers and Signed by Updike, out of a total of 150 copies printed at Firefly Press for private distribution. This copy hand-designated for Herb Yellin. Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association. .

        The Karen Bronze Drums of Burma: Types, Iconography, Manufacture and Use (Studies in Asian art and Archaeology, 16)

      Brill Academic Publishers 1997 - 274 pp. (xx+235+23 plates), bibliography, illustrations, index. ex-library, no dust jacket, stamp on outside fore-edge, label on spine, stamp inside front cover, stamp on 1st blank page, label inside back cover. This text defines the development of the Karen Bronze Drums (Heger Type III) during the past 800 years, as the continuation, by a hill-tribe group, of the earlier "Dong Son" tradition. Its chronological development is traced through seven stages by applying a method of intensive motivic analysis to data collected from 370 drums. Four new subtypes are defined and their interrelationships are demonstrated by use of tables, figures and plates. The meaning of these motivic changes, together with early accounts of Karen culture, are used to establish that the drums were symbolically a "magic pond" that the Karen ritually manipulated to assure prosperity.

        January

      (No place: William B. Ewert, 1997). (No place: William B. Ewert. 1997). First. First separate edition. 12mo. Frontispiece by Thomas Bewick. Red wrappers. Fine. One of 10 unnumbered ad personam copies printed on special paper, handsewn in wrappers and Signed by Updike, out of a total of 150 copies printed at Firefly Press for private distribution. This copy hand-designated for Herb Yellin. Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association. .
