        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. (SEE ALSO OTHER BILL JACOBSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0944092497.

        AMERICAN PSYCHO

      Picador, London 1998 - First hardcover edition, first impression. Original black textured paper covered boards, lettered silver on spine. In original dust-wrapper. A tight, unread copy that is virtually mint in d/w. D/w has just a touch of fading to spine. It is not price clipped and displaysthe original price of £10 on inner front flap. This shocking black comedy is now recognized as something of a 20th century classic of American literature. However, it excited so much controversy when it was first published in 1991 that its American publishers dropped plans for an intended hardback edition and, instead, issued it only in paperback form. This British hardback edition from Picador was the first and, to date, the only hard cover trade edition of this important work. A lovely copy with clean, white pages and edges, squeaky tight binding and spotless d/w. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      St. Martin's NY: St. Martin&#39;s. (1998). The first book, a well-crafted techno-thriller about the NSA, by the author of the mega-bestselling The Da Vinci Code. While this book has a very different subject matter than his more famous bestseller, it does anticipate the later book in dealing at length with secrets and codes. Still, one can presume a relatively small first printing: Digital Fortress did not achieve great commercial success until after the phenomenal sales of The Da Vinci Code in 2003 and beyond.

      NY: Limited Editions Club, 1998. Folio. (i), 23ff. One of 300 copies. Signed by Maya Angelou and the artist, Phoebe Beasley. Illustrated with silkscreens of six collages by Beasley. This collection of poems by Langston Hughes was selected by Angelou, who also wrote the Introduction and Afterword. Although Hughes was a fairly controversial poet in his time, often criticized for the deceptive simplicity of his verses, he "succeeded in his lifetime aim: to create a body of work that would epitomize the beauty and variety of African-American experiences, as well as the diversity of emotions, thoughts, and dreams that he saw common to all human beings." Beasley&#39;s collages were chosen by Angelou to perfectly compliment Hughes&#39;s eloquent poems. According to Angelou, "She sees human beings, our foibles, frailties and strengths, and she cares about what she sees." Beasley&#39;s work is influenced by two of the forerunners of African-American art, Romare Bearden and Jacob Lawrence, and her artwork was twice awarded the Presidential Seal. Extremely fine in purple cloth with a black morocco lettering piece bearing the title in gilt. Housed in a matching purple cloth-covered box. Prospectus and Limited Editions Club Newsletter laid in.

        SHAKESPEARE: THE INVENTION OF THE HUMAN

      London, England: Fourth Estate, 1998. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/As New Dust Jacket.. London, England: Fourth Estate, 1998. Hardcover. As New/As New. First Edition/First Printing. 745 pages. Massive collection of essays on subject. One of the greatest books of the 20th century. The first appearance of the title in the United Kingdom. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now very scarce. Presents the crowning achievement of Harold Bloom&#39;s genius, a 745-page celebration ("commentary" does not quite do justice in this context) of the one writer that he, controversially, regards as the greatest literary artist of all time. The central narrative/theme of Harold Bloom&#39;s life-work is the literary (rather than philosophical) struggle between "authority" and "personality". Whether it&#39;s specifically between orthodoxy versus heresy, The Holy Bible versus The Book of J, normative Judaism/Christianity versus mystical Kabbalah/Gnosticism, "personality" is triumphant because it is more expressive, more subtle, and more multitudinous whereas "authority" inevitably becomes predictable, rigid, and ossified. The idea of "personality" is not just articulated but sublimely dramatized by Bloom. But he credits Shakespeare with inventing it, and devotes a definitive essay to each of the plays, emphasizing their "personality" and influence on all subsequent literature, feeling, and thought. "Before Bloom is done with us, he has made us wonder whether his vision of Shakespeare&#39;s influence on the whole of our lives might not simply be the sobering truth. A feast of arguments and insights, written with engaging frankness and affecting immediacy. Filled with literally thousands of insights" (Daniel Hintzsche) . Bloom is as inexhaustible as Shakespeare. While he has all but turned Shakespeare into his personal vision of God, the one personality-turned-authority he can believe in and revere, only a genius of his stature could engage in such "hero-worship" without ever surrendering his critical faculties. He has made Bardolatry possible again. "The ultimate use of Shakespeare is to let him teach you to think too well and towards whatever truth you can sustain without perishing" (Harold Bloom) . An absolute "must-have" title for Harold Bloom and William Shakespeare collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Harold Bloom. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as almost all other copies available online are. Bloom&#39;s signature (which has become unsteady with old age and illness) is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen. This title is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only signed copy of the First British Edition/First Printing available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. While the American is the true First Edition, there is surely no question that a signed copy of the British Edition is very special indeed. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> The greatest living literary critic on the greatest writer of all time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER HAROLD BLOOM TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1841150479.
