      Edinburgh: Rebel Inc. , 1998. First edition 8vo bound in mirror metal mirror boards and printed slipcase, with facsimile credit card on a ribbon as well as a real $100 bill rolled up and housed into the interior. One of 1000 copies, the entire edition, signed by all three contributors. Overwrought, ridiculous and still somehow sublime reprint edition of the classic account of the cocaine trade. Each of the $100 bills included in the book was obtained directly from the US treasury, and the last three digits of the serial number matched the limitation number of the book. This is a bright and brilliant copy, with the C note still intact and corresponding to the limitation number, and the mirror boards still bright - unlike copies you used to see in New York City which would have the bill missing and the boards scratched to hell, smudged and licked. The slipcase has a short, slight tear to the paper over the boards at one edge, else fine as well.

        Senza titolo (ma Uomini a cavallo nel fiume).

      Anni Ottanta, litografia in colore, cm 54,5 x 75 (il foglio). Stampata su carta forte (monogramma della cartiera L. N. nell'angolo in bs. a ds. del figurato), prova d'artista 18 / 92 a lapis in bs. a sn., firmata ?Sassu? in bs. a ds., cartella in carta di contenimento con il nome dell'artista in stampatello. Sassu parla della passione per i cavalli nella sua autobiografia ?Un grido di colore?: "C'erano in Sardegna cavalli rossi e neri, ambrati e sauri, pezzati, morelli e persino verdi: sì, di cavalli verdi diceva una favola, che raccontava delle incursioni saracene sino alla piana verde di Chilivani. Nella fantasia della narrazione fiabesca, la verde bandiera di Maometto si era trasformata in una tumultuosa Bardana di cavalieri e di destrieri dello stesso colore, orde lanciate alle ruberie, al saccheggio delle genti dell'isola. E agli occhi miei - come forse agli occhi degli altri ragazzi - i cavalli non erano più gli animali stanchi dei pastori solitari che rientravano a casa nella luce dorata del tramonto. Erano piuttosto i cavalli nervosi, dalle code sferzanti come fruste e dalle criniere inquiete, che Andrea Ninniri, il fabbro poeta di Thiesi, ferrava nel suo antro nero e fumoso, rischiarato a tratti da fiamme e faville". Sassu, 1998). Tutti i paesaggi in cui vengono inseriti i cavalli sono identificabili in Mallorca, dove Sassu ha ritrovato una nuova Sardegna nei colori e nella luce del Mediterraneo. L'artista farà di quest'isola una sua seconda casa sin dagli anni Sessanta e fino alla sua morte, che avviene proprio nella sua dimora mallorchina. Sassu associa spesso il cavallo a battaglie storiche o a scene mitologiche, e lo inserisce nei suoi paesaggi. Ottima conservazione.

      Edimat, Barcelona 1998 - Faraón egipcio de la XVIII dinastía (?, h. 1372 - Tebas ?, 1354 a. C.). Tutankamón era yerno del faraón Akenatón, que murió sin dejar hijos varones; por ello le sucedieron sus yernos, Semenkera y Tutankamón; este último, hermano del anterior, accedió al Trono hacia el 1360 a. C. De hecho, hasta la muerte de su suegro, Tutankamón llevó el nombre de Tutankatón, en honor del dios solar Atón cuyo culto había impulsado Akenatón con carácter casi monoteísta. Tres años después de acceder al Trono, el nuevo faraón restableció el culto tradicional y, consiguientemente, el poderío de los sacerdotes de Amón, seriamente debilitado en el reinado anterior; al mismo tiempo, devolvió la capitalidad a Tebas, abandonando la capital creada por Akenatón en Amarna; y para simbolizar estos cambios, sustituyó su propio nombre por el de Tutankamón (que significa «la viva imagen de Amón).El reinado de Tutankamón no tuvo otro significado que este restablecimiento del orden tradicional del Egipto faraónico, bajo la influencia de los sacerdotes y generales conservadores. Tutankamón murió cuando sólo contaba 18 años y llevaba seis de reinado, probablemente en un motín palaciego. Tutankamón debe su fama a que su tumba fue la única sepultura del Valle de los Reyes que llegó sin saquear hasta la edad contemporánea; su descubrimiento por Howard Carter en 1922 constituyó un acontecimiento arqueológico mundial, mostrando el esplendor y la riqueza de las tumbas reales y sacando a la luz valiosas informaciones sobre la época.

        BILL JACOBSON: 1989-1997

      Santa Fe, NM: Twin Palms Publishing, 1998. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Santa Fe, NM: Twin Palms Publishing, 1998. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. The artist/photographer&#39;s breakthrough debut collection. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. Deluxe Clamshell Box Edition of 50 numbered and signed copies. Should not be confused with all other editions. The Deluxe Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Bill Jacobson and Jack Woody: Oversize-volume format. Pale gray cloth boards with black titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Bill Jacobson. Short story, "Lost Profile", by Klauss Kertess. Original silver-gelatin print laid into the box. Matching pale gray cloth clamshell box. Printed on thick coated stock paper by EBS in Verona, Italy to the highest standards. In white pictorial DJ, as issued. Presents the artist/photographer&#39;s dramatic sequence of images that test the boundaries of the portrait by a singular blurring/effacing technique applied to all of the photographs. The images appear to be eerie at first, but as one moves progressively through the complete series (which are grouped into three suites, "Interim Portrait", "Song of Sentient Beings", and "Thought Series"), one cannot help but be deeply moved by the cumulative and overwhelming power of Bill Jacobson&#39;s achievement. Jacobson has accomplished nothing less than a re-imagination of every human being as a presence who is also an absence: We are and we are not at the same time. As Ingmar Bergman once said of "Persona", perhaps the greatest film of the 20th century, it is not so much a question of being or nothing ("to be or not to be"). Rather, it is a question of being-as-nothing. Jacobson has explicitly said that the book is one of loss and remembrance, especially of friends and lovers, that is, nothing-ness. The images are deepened rather than effaced by the unusual blurring technique that the photographer has used. "I started taking photographs nearly twenty-five years ago. Since then my work has been an ongoing meditation around desire, loss, and the role of photography as a vehicle for remembrance. My pictures often function as a metaphor for the way the mind works: Simultaneously collecting images while letting others go, fading in the way memories fade, and alluding to the fact that, historically, photographs have faded as well" (Bill Jacobson). A "must-have" edition for Bill Jacobson collectors. <b><i> This copy is Number 50, the very last copy of the Deluxe Edition, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Bill Jacobson. Laid-in is a silver-gelatin print that is mounted, framed, and protected with a glassine paper overlay. It is also very prominently and beautifully signed, titled, dated, and numbered in pencil on verso by the artist/photographer: "bill jacobson thought series # 712 1993 (twin palms) 50/50". Jacobson deliberately used all-lower-case letters for the inscription. This title is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Deluxe Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 52 tritone plates, 1 original print. One of the most brilliant living American artist/photographers. A fine collectible copy.
