        Streetwork, 1993-1997 ( still in publishers shrink wrap )

      Ediciones Universidad de Salamanca 1998 - Photographs by Philip-Lorca DiCorcia of sidewalk scenes from 10 cities worldwide, from Los Angeles to Odessa (Ukraine), from Barcelona to Tokyo. - - - - - - - - - "DiCorcia photographed the street life in eight big American, European and Asian cities between 1996 and 1998. On the pavement he placed hidden lights, which lit up passers-by in a special way. His photos elevate the accidental poses, the unintended movements and insignificant facial expressions of the passers-by into a certain meaning. The scenes are like stills from a film on daily life, the city acting as decor. DiCorcia is a photographer who shows life's dilemmas in a metropolis: isolated individuals disappearing into the masses. His photos lift a few out of the crowd. However, by using the city's name as the title of the photo he places the passers-by back into the city's anonymity."--Noorderlicht Photofestival, 1999. - - - - - - - - - New condition in publisher shrink wrap ( page corners have just penetrated through the wrap slightly ) Scarce original edition in this new condition. - - - - - - - - - PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs may be required for insured shipping to your destination beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the amount at time of purchase.

        Die sprechenden Maschinen Studer-Revox - Das Lebenswerk des Audiopioniers Willi Studer von Peter Holenstein Das Buch enthält die gründlich recherchierte, dokumentierte und bebilderte Geschichte der Marken "Studer" und "Revox", Begriffe, die weltweit zu Synomen für perfektionierte Audiotechnik wurden, und es schildert den Werdegang von Willi Studer und seiner Firma. Auf einer zweiten "Tonspur" faßt der Autor die Geschichte der Tonaufnahme von den Visionären bis in die Gegenwart zusammen, die vor mehr als hundert Jahren begann. Wir haben die Tonbandmaschine so perfektioniert, dass die musikalischen Grenzen weniger bei der Technik, sondern mehr beim menschlichen Ohr liegen.» Dieser Werbespruch trifft - wie ich finde - den Charakter der legendären Audioprodukte präzis, mit denen die Schweizer Firma Studer-Revox unter ihrem Gründer Willi Studer die Welt eroberte - zumindest die Welt der Ton- und Radiostudios und die der Sprachlabors. Zu ihren bekanntesten Produkten gehört dabei fraglos der nimbusreiche Revox-Plattenspieler, der dank seiner unübertroffenen Qualität heute noch in allen grossen Radio- und vielen Tonstudios im Einsatz ist. Zu erfahren ist dies und noch viel mehr übrigens in dieser kurzweiligen, faktenreichen, reich bebilderten Monografie. Denn sie gibt nicht nur Einblick in Studers Leben, sondern erzählt auch, wie sich seine Firma vom Kleinbetrieb zum Weltkonzern entwickelte und dabei den Rundfunkbereich wie das private Musikhören revolutionierte. Zudem stellt sie im zweiten Teil jedes Modell in Wort und Bild vor, das Studer-Revox jemals produzierte. KurzDas grandiose Buch ist schlicht ein Must für Studer-Revox-Fans! Spannend wie ein Krimi und bis ins letzte recherchiert beschreibt Peter Holenstein die Geschichte der Rundfunktechnik und speziell die des Audio-Pioniers Willi Studer,dessen Produkte bis zur "digitalen Revolution" Kultstatus hatten. Fast jede Seite läßt das Herz eines Revox-Fans höher schlagen.Ein "AHa"- Erlebnis folgt dem anderen. Man blättert in diesem Buch wie in einem persönlichen Poesiealbum der Technik.Ein tolles Werk von Peter Holenstein,der nach eigenen Angaben vier Jahre Arbeit in dieses Buch investiert hat. Das Buch beschreibt den Werdegang und die Lebensgeschichte von Willi Studer sehr ausführlich und detailliert. Sein unendliches Streben nach Qualität und Spitzenleistungen wurden belohnt durch stetiges Wachstum und die weltweite Verbreitung der beiden Markennamen Studer und Revox. Der technische Teil des Buches führt den Leser durch ein virtuelles Museum mit sämtlichen Tonbandgeräten und Studiomaschinen, welche von 1948 bis 1990 hergestellt wurden. Dieses Buch ist ein Muss für Studiofreaks und Analogliebhaber.

        One Hundred Years of Solitude.

      Norwalk, CT: Easton Press, 1998. First edition of Easton press edition of the Garcia Marquez's masterpiece. Octavo, original full leather, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels, all edges gilt, ribbon bound in. Translated from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa. Signed by both Gabriel Garcia Marquez and signed by the translator, Gregory Rabassa on the half-title page, who has added the classic quote from this novel, "It's enough to know that you and I exist at this moment. Gregory Rabassa." In fine condition. Illustrated by Alan Phillips. A unique example. "One Hundred Years of Solitude chronicles the life of Macondo, a fictional town based in part of Garcia Marquez's hometown of Aracataca, Colombia, and seven generations of the founding family, the Buendias. He creates a complex world with characters and events that display the full range of human experience. For the reader, the pleasure of the novel derives from its fast-paced narrative, humor, vivid characters, and fantasy elements. In this 'magic realism', the author combines imaginative flights of fancy with social realism to give us images of levitating priests, flying carpets, a four-year-long rainstorm, and a young woman ascending to heaven while folding sheets" (NYPL Books of the Century 31).

The letter was originally drawn to represent the head of an ox and given the name aleph (Phoenician "ox"). In Greek this became alpha. The shape of the letter changed gradually as it passed into the Hebrew, Greek, and Roman alphabets. Our capital A is based on the Greek form. The lower-case a was first used in medieval manuscripts. From the first 2 letters of the Greek alphabet, alpha and beta, we derive the word alphabet.

        One Hundred Years of Solitude

      Norwalk, CT: Easton Press, 1998. First edition of Easton press edition of the Garcia Marquez's masterpiece. Octavo, original full leather, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels, all edges gilt, ribbon bound in. Translated from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa. Signed by both Gabriel Garcia Marquez and signed by the translator, Gregory Rabassa on the half-title page, who has added the classic quote from this novel, "It's enough to know that you and I exist at this moment. Gregory Rabassa." In fine condition. Illustrated by Alan Phillips. A unique example. "One Hundred Years of Solitude chronicles the life of Macondo, a fictional town based in part of Garcia Marquez's hometown of Aracataca, Colombia, and seven generations of the founding family, the Buendias. He creates a complex world with characters and events that display the full range of human experience. For the reader, the pleasure of the novel derives from its fast-paced narrative, humor, vivid characters, and fantasy elements. In this 'magic realism', the author combines imaginative flights of fancy with social realism to give us images of levitating priests, flying carpets, a four-year-long rainstorm, and a young woman ascending to heaven while folding sheets" (NYPL Books of the Century 31).
