        Silver Gelatin Photographs Signed

      New York: Richard Corman, 1999. RICHARD CORMAN'S ICONIC PHOTOGRAPHS OF MUHAMMAD ALI: THE ONLY SET SIGNED BY ALI. Each of the three 11x14 inch silver prints is signed by Ali in silver marker on the front of the image; each image is also signed by Corman on the verso and marked "1 of 1". The Ali signatures are particularly strong and bold.Trained under Richard Avedon, Richard Corman has been one of the most celebrated portrait photographers of the last thirty years.Rolling Stone refers to his photographs as "iconic" and documentarian Ken Burns says Corman's versatile body of work is an "artistic vision dedicated to the highest aspirations of human endeavor... the photographs record in big moments and small, among the famous and ordinary, the gifted and challenged, larger truths relevant to all of us."Although he has met and photographed countless inspiring athletes, politicians, and cultural figures, Corman fondly remembers his photoshoot with Ali as a milestone in his career. As he explains:These images shot in 1998 in NYC on the lower westside in many ways was the culmination of my career up to that point and still remains one of the highlights of a very fortunate career.  I was awestruck when he agreed to fly to New York to pose for the cover of my first book... it still blows my mind and was so flattering. He was fighting Parkinson's, but never let that disease stop his bold character.You see Ali was my hero on so many levels: great humanitarian, genius athlete, incredible sense of humor, beyond courageous, and a dignity I had never in my lifetime witnessed before. He had principle and strength that so many looked up to... rich, poor, black or white. He moved so many of us.He lived up to every preconceived notion I had of him during our short time together in my studio. However it was his humility and generosity that was so prevalent and set the stage for a shoot that was honest, truthful and so memorable.I still get chills when I see his signature on these three photographs.The Ali photos have been widely reproduced and are perhaps the most recognizable images of Ali later in life. They were featured in Time Magazine and one of the images served as the cover of Corman's first book Glory.New York: Richard Corman, 1998-1999. Three 11x14 inch silver gelatin prints.A UNIQUE PIECE OF HISTORY IN FINE CONDITION. Fine.

        The Theory of Money and Financial Institutions.

      Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 1999. First editions of Shubik's work regarding the theory of money. Octavo, 2 volumes. Both volumes are inscribed by Martin Shubik to Benoit Mandelbrot. Volume one is signed, "To Benoit and Aliette To old friends with best wishes Martin S. June 7, 2000. P.S. You made an error. You were going to get a free copy- if need you can assign it." Volume 2 is inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Benoit and Aliette To old friends with best wishes Martin Shubik June 7, 2000." Mandelbrot writes, "The indispensable intermediary who started the process that led me to Yale was a self-described 'institutional economist' Martin Shubik. We had met while I was John Von Neumann's postdoc at the Institute For Advanced Study and he was at Princeton University with Oskar Morgenstern, Johnny's co-author of the book Theory of Games and Economic Behavior. For a short period in the sixties, we were colleagues at IBM research, but he soon left for Yale. Out of the blue, Shubik called me when I was in transit to Harvard in 1964 and again early in 1967. The first time, I must have rebuffed him. The second time I must have sounded more open. Shortly afterward, a call from the mathematics chairman, Ronald Raphael Coifman" (The Fractalist pp. 279-80). Both volumes are fine in near fine dust jackets with light shelf wear. A nice association. "Mathematical institutional economics"--a term Martin Shubik coined in 1959 to describe the theoretical underpinnings needed for the construction of an economic dynamics. The goal is to develop a process-oriented theory of money and financial institutions that reconciles micro- and macroeconomics, using as a prime tool the theory of games in strategic and extensive form. The approach involves a search for minimal financial institutions that appear as a logical, technological, and institutional necessity, as part of the "rules of the game." Money and financial institutions are assumed to be the basic elements of the network that transmits the sociopolitical imperatives to the economy. Volume 1 deals with a one-period approach to economic exchange with money, debt, and bankruptcy. Volume 2 explores the new economic features that arise when we consider multi-period finite and infinite horizon economies.

One Of Stephen King's Most Elusive Books. Chapbook Condition: Fine. History: In October 1998, Stephen King asked Michael Alpert to produce The New Lieutenant's Rap. The book was wanted for the April 6, 1999 Anniversary Celebration of Stephen's 25th year a a published novelist. After receiving Stephen's story, Michael worked on the book during the next five months, finishing it in time for Stephen's New York extravaganza at The Tavern On The Green in Central Park. As is often the case with Philtrum Press books, Stephen asked him to use innovative book-design ideas similar to The Plant and The Eyes Of The Dragon in previous years. For this book, Michael incorporated Stephen's hand-printed text within the long tradition of fine bookbinding. The New Lieutenant's Rap was printed on beautifully crafted German all-rag paper, and was sewn with green Irish linen thread. After printing, sewing, and numbering the edition for the Carrie party, Michael discovered that he had on hand 24 designer's proof copies that were used at various stages as guides for the final numbered and signed edition. These working copies are out-of-series (ie: not numbered) and are not meant for Stephen's signature. An explanatory sheet accompanies each of the 24 proofs.

Jindrich Styrsky (1899-1942 Prague) célèbre peintre, poète et cofondateur du mouvement surréaliste de Prague, fut aussi un grand photographe, essentiel pour la photographie surréaliste, comme en témoigne son ouvrage très recherché et depuis longtemps introuvable Emilie prichasi ke mne ve snu (Emilie me visite en rêve), Edice 69, Prague, 1933, ainsi que l'album Na jehlach techto dni (Sur les aiguilles de ces jours), publié après sa mort à Prague en 1945 avec des poème de Jindrich Heisler(traduction française publiée par le Editions Sirène, Berlin, 1984).

Reprises de Vue de Jindrich Styrsky est publié dans un tirage restreint, 24exemplaires, fait à partir des négatifs originaux par Jacqueline Hyde, et desquels aucun autre tirage ne sera effectué. Ces négatifs ont été confiés à Radovan Ivsic par son amie peintre Toyen (à qui le livre est d'ailleurs dédié) et qui fut aussi une grande amie de Jindrich Styrsky et comme lui un incontournable personnage de l'histoire surréaliste. Radovan Ivsic, né à Zagreb en 1921, a, depuis son arrivée à Paris en 1954, participé à toutes les activités du mouvement surréaliste. Il a notamment sonorisé deux grandes expositions surréalistes internationales en 1959 et 1965. Il a publié des livres très recherchés, entre autres illustrés par Joan Miro (Mavena 1960) et par Toyen (Le Puits dans la tour, 1967 ; Le Roi Gordogane, 1968 ; Tir, 1973). Tirage total de 24 exemplaires [Attributes: Hard Cover]
