        Peter Zumthor Works: Buildings and Projects, 1979-1997 (Gebundene Ausgabe)von Peter Zumthor (Autor), Helene Binet (Autor)

      Birkhauser (Architectural), 1999. 1999. Hardcover. Good. 31 x 24,4 x 3,3 cm. The style of Peter Zumthor's work has some affinities with what is often called Swiss minimalism. Zumthor believes "the language of architecture is not a question of a specific style. Every building is built for a specific use in a specific place for a specific society. My buildings try to answer the questions that emerge from these simple facts as precisely and critically as they can."

        Fifty Years of Portaits (Two Page Autograph Treatment)

      Santa Fe: Arena Editions, 1999. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine. This is a signed first edition, first printing of \"Peter Beard: Fifty Years of Portraits by Peter Beard\" published by Arena Editions, Santa Fe, in 1999. The book was published on the occasion of the 1999 exhibition Peter Beard: Fifty Years of Portraits curated by Peter T. Tunney, at the Fahey/Klein Gallery, Los Angeles and is a highly sought-after monograph of Beard\'s work. The publisher\'s comments provide a wonderful insight into the book: \"Throughout his remarkable life, photographer, naturalist, and raconteur Peter Beard has befriended and photographed some of the most prominent figures of our times. Portraiture is woven into the fabric of all of Beard\'s work, yet to date this relationship has never been carved out and explored. From his earliest attempts at expression as a child to the mania for travel and adventure that overtook Beard as a young man, and onward to Beard\'s most recent work on assignment, portraiture is a central thread of Beard\'s career. Beard\'s \"portraits,\" however, rarely conform to the traditional format of this genre. Instead, they embody spontaneity, the moments shared with intimate friends, and the adventurous lives and experiences to which he has long been attracted. A vital chronicler of our times, he has created memorable images of such icons as Picasso, Francis Bacon, Karen Blixen, Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Salvador Dali, and Mick Jagger, along with the last great safari hunters, such as J.A. Hunter, Phillip Percival, and Cape-to-Cairo Grogan\". Profusely illustrated with numerous photographs, photomontages and collages with hand-written texts, photographs, painting and drawings by Peter Beard, the book measures approximately 10.5 x 8.5 inches and is 206 pages. The book is bound in brown leatherette covered boards with a tipped-in plate on the front cover and debossed title. Both the book and covers are in FINE condition. What makes this book even more special is the two page autograph treatment by Peter Beard. In addition to his full signature in red to match the title page color, he has added the date 2000 ad and included his footprint and red ink splashes to create a unique personalized signature treatment.

        Large Mass Hierarchy from a Small Extra Dimension" in Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 17, 25 October 1999, pp. 3370 - 3373 and "An Alternative to Compactification" in Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 23, 6 December 1999, pp. 4690-4693

      - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF TWO OF THE MOST CITED PAPERS IN THE HISTORY OF PHYSICS. In these papers, Randall and Sundrum show that infinite extra dimension and weakness of gravity can be explained with an extra dimension. "String theory extra dimensions have traditionally been considered to be small and unobservable. Randall and Sundrum introduced an alternative in these two papers in which one of the additional dimensions is "warped." In their approach, the strong, weak, and electromagnetic forces are confined to three dimensions (on a 3-brane, a three-dimensional "membrane," at a specific location in the other dimensions), but gravity propagates in the warped space as well. Their work differs from most of the rest of string theory in that they predict quantum effects due to gravity that may soon be testable by the LHC. To parse the theoretical disunification of physics in disparate gravitational force-strength Lisa Randall and Raman Sundrum posited the existence of extra-dimensional brane-layers actively leaking energy fluctuations into our own universe; with mathematical supports, Randall and Sundrum illustrated their idea's compatibility with existing cosmological valuations and astrophysical data. Lisa Randall was the first tenured woman in physics at Princeton, as well as the first tenured theorist at Harvard and MIT. Additionally, she is the most cited theoretical physicist in the world. CONDITION & DETAILS: Maryland: The American Physical Society. Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 17 pp. 3370 - 3373, 25 October 1999 and Physical Review Letters 83 Issue 23, pp. 4690-4693, 6 December 1999. Quarto (11.25 x 8.25 inches; 281 x 206mm). Two entire issues in original wraps. Near fine except for some minor rubbing and scuffing to the front wraps of each issue. Both volumes are tightly bound and very clean throughout.

        THE DWELLINGS OF THE PHILOSOPHERS

      Boulder, 1999. First edition. Very good condition in a very good dust jacket. 550 pages The true identity of the alchemical adept calling himself "Fulcanelli" has never been publicly discovered but there are few who would not recognize his works as the most significant contribution to the Great Art in more than 100 years. The author displays an immense knowledge of the practices of Alchemy and of the Alchemists of the Middle Ages. For for the first time he makes clear the differences between Chemistry, Spagyrics, Archemy, and Alchemy. For many, the most amazing revelation of the book will be the author's review and exhaustive interpretation of the extensive statuary, bas relief, and other artistic devices built into the homes of numerous Medieval Alchemists. These works of art for centuries have revealed openly the secrets of Alchemy to all who have the eyes to see. This long awaited, meticulously translated work from the original French will be of immense benefit to those who seek to understand Alchemy for what it truly is—the art and science of Creation and Transformation of physical form through the agency of Man.

        Something Wicked This Way Comes

      (Springfield): Gauntlet. 1999. The limited edition reissue of one of Bradbury's classic novels, originally published in 1962, with additional material added to this volume. This is a publisher's copy ("PC") that corresponds to the lettered issue, of which there were 52 lettered copies; there were presumably far fewer "PC" copies. Signed by Bradbury, Joe Lansdale, and Peter Crowther, the latter two of whom provide afterwords. Bradbury contributes a new introduction to this edition. There is also an appendix with pages of a screen treatment for The Dark Carnival -- the title story of Bradbury's first collection, which was published in the 1940s -- that later became Something Wicked, and facsimile pages from Bradbury's screenplay for Disney, with Disney's corrections. Bookplate front flyleaf. Fine in a fine dust jacket, in the publisher's clamshell case, which has one corner bump. A scarce issue of a deluxe edition of one of Bradbury's most famous works. Hardcover.

        THE DWELLINGS OF THE PHILOSOPHERS

      Boulder, 1999. First edition. Fine condition in very good dust jacket; Jacket has a few small scrapes to the fore-edge. With thirty-nine illustrations by Julien Champagne; Translated by Brigitte Donvez and Lionel Perrin; Limited issue of 300 copies bound in leather, though low quality bonded leather, tan marbled end papers and red marking ribbon; 550 pages The true identity of the alchemical adept calling himself "Fulcanelli" has never been publicly discovered but there are few who would not recognize his works as the most significant contribution to the Great Art in more than 100 years. The author displays an immense knowledge of the practices of Alchemy and of the Alchemists of the Middle Ages. For for the first time he makes clear the differences between Chemistry, Spagyrics, Archemy, and Alchemy. For many, the most amazing revelation of the book will be the author's review and exhaustive interpretation of the extensive statuary, bas relief, and other artistic devices built into the homes of numerous Medieval Alchemists. These works of art for centuries have revealed openly the secrets of Alchemy to all who have the eyes to see. This long awaited, meticulously translated work from the original French will be of immense benefit to those who seek to understand Alchemy for what it truly is—the art and science of Creation and Transformation of physical form through the agency of Man.
