        Isolated Heroes (signed)

      Antwerp: Raf Simons, 1999. First Edition. Hardcover.. Fine. Folio, Unpaginated (ca 42pp). Printed boards as issued. Numerous Colour plates. Signed by Raf Simons. More images available on request. Phenomenally scarce, particularly when signed by Raf Simons himself. Peter de Potter writes: "The series of photographs, collected under the banner ÔIsolated HeroesÕ, are the result of the collaboration British photographer David Sims and Belgian menswear designer Raf Simons undertook in the summer of 1999. Featured on the pictures are Raf SimonsÕ models, dressed in his collection for Spring-Summer 2000. Each boy is credited with a serial number and his own first name. ÔIsolated HeroesÕ contains both black and white and colour photographs. This collaboration was not a chance meeting. Both Sims and Simons had been outspoken about their mutual admiration, mostly in press interviews. Although the interest in each otherÕs work developed into a firm friendship, they only decided to work together in the wake of SimonsÕ Spring-Summer 2000-collection. Originally intented as a work-in-progress, SimsÕ photographs of SimonsÕ models soon became a body of work in itÕs own right. The photographs of ÔIsolated HeroesÕ were never intended for mere promotional purposes. They even transcend more traditional fashion photography, as they reach for a timeless quality, devoid of signs of the times or traces of trendiness. The pictures encapsulate both SimsÕ and SimonsÕ vision with clarity and precision. The ÔIsolated HeroesÕ-project deals with beauty, youth, masculinity and the perfect isolation of all these preoccupations." Encapsulates the ethos of Simons perfectly. A stunning and unique project.

      Tokyo, Japan: Treville Company Limited, 1999. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Tokyo, Japan: Treville Company Limited, 1999. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. The photographer&#39;s second collection of celebrity portraits and male and female nudes. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the much more common Second Edition. Volume Two of the landmark two-volume set. Published in a very small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The edition is now rare. Each volume was published separately, ten years apart from each other, and by different publishers. The reason they nevertheless work perfectly together is that Greg Gorman maintained full creative control over the production of both. A stunningly beautiful production by Greg Gorman and Ulrik Neumann: Oversize-volume format. A tall and thick book. Photographs by Greg Gorman. There is minimal text. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper by Treville Company Limited Tokyo to the very highest standards. Gorman&#39;s dramatic use of lighting is reproduced in all its power and beauty as only a Japanese printing company can pull it off. In pictorial DJ, which utilizes a nude portrait of Iman in front and a male nude on the back, and white titles on the spine, as issued. Presents Greg Gorman&#39;s finest and most representative images in the two genres that he has excelled in and established himself: The celebrity portrait and the nude. Dramatically lit black-and-white, full-page photographs of celebrities are presented as spectacular, highly erotic nudes. Although it took a decade to get it published, the long wait was well worth it. Includes portraits of Rupert Everett (in his first and only full-frontal nude) , Tony Ward, Michael Dean, and Brigitte Nielsen, among so many others. In Volume One, there was a clear demarcation between the extreme closeup celebrity portraits (which showed the soulful beauty of the human face) and the suite of nudes (which showed Gorman&#39;s arresting sculptural approach to the nude) . In Volume Two, what is amazing is how Gorman managed effortlessly to persuade every single one of his male and female celebrities to shed their glamorous clothes and show off their smooth, silky, luminescent skin, the only clothing they really need, in daring, full-frontal poses. An accomplished Hollywood and lifestyle magazine photographer who has done commercial work for HBO, Columbia Pictures, Interview Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Playboy Magazine, LIFE, and Tatler, among others, Greg Gorman&#39;s true passions are the charismatic personality of the celebrity and the chiseled perfection of the human form, as only the (his) camera can capture. This follow-up collection offers definitive and ample proof of Greg Gorman&#39;s distinctive style and outstanding mastery of his chosen medium. A gorgeous "coffee-table" book, this is a "must-have" title for Greg Gorman collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Greg Gorman. This is an Import title and is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only signed copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Gorman did not sign most copies and many copies available online have major flaws yet command up to $500. A rare signed copy thus. </b></I> Lavishly illustrated with duotone plates. One of the finest living American photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GREG GORMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 4845707780.

This, the catalog for a traveling exhibition, assembles the most diverse and eclectic collection of images from Beard&#39;s lifetime ever published--images that take the form of photographs, photomontages and collages with hand-written texts, painting and drawings.

        THE BAD BEGINNING and THE REPTILE ROOM plus &#39;Magnets for Misfortune.&#39;

      New York: HarperCollins, (1999.) . Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. ) . Very near fine - a new and unread book, tight binding, no creases, but a little nick at the top of the spine and another at the upper corner (probably done in the publishing process, since these tiny nicks seem to be endemic to most otherwise fine copies). . An extremely uncommon ARC of the first two titles in the "Series of Unfortunate Events" by Lemony Snicket - THE BAD BEGINNING and THE REPTILE ROOM, bound dos-a-dos, (back to back) in glossy illustrated wrappers. SIGNED (sort of) by the author, with an embossed seal and the trademark handwritten comment &#39;with all due respect&#39; surrounding the seal, and the date &#39;3.X.2004. written inside the seal. First issue, with the misspelling of &#39;unfortuante&#39; on the covers. Now that this was the basis of a movie starring Jim Carey, Meryl Streep and Jude Law, even those of you who don&#39;t have children in your lives are probably familiar with these books, but for those who might still be languishing uninformed, here is a bit of information: The Lemony Snicket books are possibly even more popular than the Potter books - and for good reason! The resemblance to Edward Gorey&#39;s works is not accidental - How could anyone not love a book which contains this &#39;letter to the reader&#39; at the beginning: &#39;I am sorry to say that the book which you are holding in your hands is extremely unpleasant. It tells the unhappy tale of three very unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. From the very first page of this book, when the children are at the beach and receive terrible news, continuing on through the entire story, disaster lurks at their heels. One might say they are magnets for misfortune./ In this short book alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune and cold porridge for breakfast. / It is my sad duty to write down these unpleasant tales, but there is nothing stopping you from putting this book down at once and reading something happy, if you prefer that sort of thing.&#39; What adult would not enjoy the in-jokes of names like Sunny and Klaus (as in von Bulow) - or the fact that these books actually encourage children to learn from reading, as in this excerpt: &#39;But although Klaus had read books on outer-space exploration, ice-skating tricks, and good marriage methods, and not yet found much use for this information, he had learned a great deal of information that was about to become very useful indeed.&#39; Or a beginning paragraph that includes a word like &#39;rife&#39;? The vocabulary is wonderful in these books. As a well-publicized debut, this advance reading copy was presumably printed in relatively generous numbers - but very few are currently being offered for sale! Either all the booksellers who got copies of this are hoarding this treasure themselves or, horrors, actually GAVE them to children! However, not only are we willing to sell this ARC, we will even include the much more elusive &#39; Magnets for Misfortune&#39; which was produced as part of this original publicity campaign (I have never seen any of these offered for sale). This is the first of the promotional magnet sets done by the publisher: it consists of a small sheet of words (5 3/4 by 4 inches, designed to be cut apart and use to create &#39;refrigerator poetry&#39;&#39; Still in the original sealed plastic bag with a slip announcing a poetry contest for children.

        The Culinary Chronicle, Bd.3, The Best of New York & Paris [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Christine Messer Hausch (Autor), Bruno Hausch (Autor), Christine Messer Hausch (Autor), Chris Meier (Autor), Hans-Albert Stechl (Autor)

      Hädecke, 1999. 1999. Hardcover. Good. 32 x 25,7 x 4,6 cm. Hans-Albert Stechl lebt und arbeitet als studierter Jurist und gelernter Journalist in Freiburg. Seit über 25 Jahren schreibt er unter anderem in seinem 400 Jahre alten Bauernhaus in der Toskana die Kolumnen für die Badische und Basler Zeitung sowie für den Feinschmecker. Außerdem hat er bereits an die 30 Bücher zu kulinarischen und Reisethemen, insbesondere über die Toskana, Provence, Elsass, Baden und Schwaben, veröffentlicht. Na gut, wer mal eben schnell eine Idee für das Mittagessen sucht, noch ne halbe Stunde Zeit hat, weil gleich die Kinder nach Hause kommen und die nichts außer Pizza und Nudeln mögen, der sollte sich vielleicht etwas Einfacheres suchen. Wer jedoch ein Faible für gute (bzw. wirklich sehr gute) und auch ein bißchen aufwendigere Küche hat, der hat DAS (Koch-)Buch gefunden. Es präsentiert die Topstars unter den Restaurants und Köchen der beiden Städte (New York und Paris) mit typischen Exemplaren ihrer Speisekarten, Hintergrundinformationen und eben einem Rezept. Da werden dann auch schon mal Hummer, Kaviar, Trüffel, etc. benutzt, was die obige Einschränkung zum Thema schnelles Mittagessen erklärt. Wer aber selbst ambitioniert kocht, der wird mit kompletten Rezepten und Ideen munitioniert, die den Gästen bei der nächsten "Soirée" die Neidesröte ins Gesicht treiben wird. Rechnen sie allerdings nicht mehr damit, woanders zum Essen eingeladen zu werden - mit Ihnen will danach niemand mehr konkurrieren!

Das Buch wagt sich mit seinem Konzept an eine neue Dimension heranes will Zeitdokument sein, kulinarische Informationen für Augen und Kopf bieten und gleichzeitig mit der modernen Gestaltung, großzügigen Bildstrecken und hochwertigen Verarbeitung Genuß vermitteln und die Sinne beflügeln. Der erste Band dokumentiert die kulinarischen Höhepunkte Hong Kongs, Marokkos und Londons. Synopsis:The concept that "food is culture" is the basis for this pack, which aims to document the wealth of food culture from all over the world. The cuisine of Hong Kong is discussed in depth, then Morocco and its culinary delights is described, and lastly, the quality of London&#39;s food is appraised. The first of a proposed series, this volume examines the focal points of three totally heterogeneous locations. Hong Kong&#39;s cuisine is comprehensively described, from that of well-known international hotels to the best Chinese speciality restaurants. In contrast, the book turns to Morocco&#39;s southern region, describing the tranquillity of the country, the carefully-nurtured traditions, the light and colours and the arabesques of the architecture and design, all lending an atmosphere conducive to pleasure. Finally London&#39;s gastronomic scene is delineated. Having awoken from its long culinary torpor, the city is considered to have now taken its place in the avantgarde of food culture. Also included is a CD-ROM entitled "Wonders of Hong Kong".

"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.

Luigi Mayer (1755&#150;1803) was one of the most important late 18th century European painters of the Ottoman Empire. Most of his drawings from this time were commissioned by his friend, Sir Robert Ainslie, 1st Baronet, and British ambassador to Turkey during 1776-92. He was known for his sketches and paintings of ancient panoramas from the Balkans to the Greek Islands, Turkey and Egypt, particularly ancient monuments and the Nile. Much of Ainslie&#39;s collection was later presented to the British Museum. Bookseller ref 201. .

First Edition/First Printing. 239 pages. The photographer&#39;s fourth collection. Now considered a contemporary photography classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a regular first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now very scarce. An austerely elegant production by Annie Leibovitz, Ruth Ansel, and Tim Hossler: Oversize-volume format. Pristine white hard boards with titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Annie Leibovitz. Essay by Susan Sontag. Printed on thick coated stock paper in the United States by Meridian Printing Rhode Island to the very highest standards. In pale gray DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents some of the most stunning and unforgettable portraits of American women ever taken. Widely regarded as one of her most important and most moving books, the collection affirms Annie Leibovitz&#39;s position as a serious documentary photographer with an unmistakable trademark style even though her fame as a fashion, lifestyle, and celebrity photographer remains paramount. Leibovitz herself credits Susan Sontag with the idea of putting together a book on women at the end of a truly dismal and catastrophic century, whose one incontestable achievement is the emancipation of women in many (but not most) parts of the world, the so-called Feminist Movement, of which both Leibovitz and Sontag are shining examples and foot soldiers. As the title suggests, every photograph is that of a woman or a group of women. The essay is provocatively titled, "A Photograph Isn&#39;t An Opinion. Or Is It?". Sontag wisely avoided writing about Leibovitz&#39;s "art" or "technique" (they were lifetime companions) . Instead, she chose to write about the book&#39;s deeply fascinating, profound, and interesting subject: "Each of these pictures must stand on its own. But the ensemble says, So this is what women are now, as different, as varied, as heroic, as forlorn, as conventional, as unconventional as this" (Susan Sontag) . Leibovitz is not just a commercially successful photographer. She is, quite simply, the most famous photographer in the world today, is a household word in America, and needs no further introduction. The people who buy her books are not primarily photography book collectors. This ensemble is her attempt to create a collection that will endure while drawing on her strengths as a portrait photographer. A "must-have" title for Annie Leibovitz collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the half-title page by Annie Leibovitz. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. It is one of the most beautiful copies we have ever seen. Most copies available online are subsequent printings or have major flaws. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 150 duotone and color plates. Two of the finest American artists of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ANNIE LEIBOVITZ AND SUSAN SONTAG TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0375500200.
