        The Little Screens (Deluxe Signed First Edition)

      San Francisco: Fraenkel Gallery, 2001. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine. This is a deluxe signed first edition of \"The Little Screens\" published by Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco in 2001 with a limitation of 100 copies this being number 82. From the publisher: \"The Little Screens is a revered and influential body of early work by Lee Friedlander, but it has never before been brought together in its entirety. The book\'s title refers to the television screens housed in motel rooms and other nondescript rooms of anonymous character spread throughout the country during the 1960s. Each screen vividly transmits images of popular culture icons, political figures, or minor celebrities of the times. The environments are iconographic ghost-filled rooms filled with bland furniture -- rooms without personality, rooms that could be, and are, anywhere and everywhere. The Little Screens and their environments weave a narrative of a peripatetic photographer moving through the landscape of 1960s America, and the melancholy, yet sometimes comic quality of life lived on the road. They provide a look at the 1960s as so many people saw it: beamed into their living rooms. The book\'s preface was written by the legendary Walker Evans after he saw the photographs in 1963.\" Containing 34 duotone photographs and measuring 10 x 10 inches, the book is bound in photographically illustrated laminated paper covered boards with a crystallogranpic dual-image tipped into the television screen portion of the cover photograph. The book (no dust jacket as issued) is housed in a green Plexiglass slipcase. The book has been boldly signed and numbered (82 of 100) by Lee Friedlander opposite the first page. The book is in FINE condition with just a hint of wear from the book sliding in and out of the slipcase. The condition of the Plexiglass slipcase is FINE- with very minor surface wear.

        Limestone (Limited First Edition)

      Paris: Editions de La Martiniere, 2001. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine. This is a first edition, first printing of Koudelka\'s critically acclaimed photobook Limestone published by Editions de La Martiniere, Paris in 2001 with a limitation of 500 copies this being number 59. The British Journal of Photography stated, \"Koudelka is the most potent and powerful photographer alive today. His black-and-white photographs are so highly charged, so strong in their visual impact, and so haunted that they defy description\". Parr & Badger in \"The Photobook: A History\" commenting on Limestone wrote, \"This powerfully original photographer offers 36 evocative photogravures, the work of two years spent photographing limestone quarries in the United States and Europe. It is a large, handsome production, which features the photographer\'s panoramas presented in a long, continuous accordion fold . Here, Koudelka gives full reign to these tendencies to make brooding pictures that emphasize the quarrying of limestone not as rape, but as a noble and civilizing act.\" Jean-Pierre Berghmans in his introduction writes, \"Josef Koudelka has opened my eyes to the beauty of these landscapes. Nature is far stronger than any of us. His work is a moving account of nature\'s infinite capacity for asserting itself.\" Containing 36 spectacular black-and-white accordion fold panoramas printed in gravure on heavy coated stock that measure approximately 7.5 x 22.5 inches (each reproduction is the length of two folded pages), the book is bound in gray paper covered boards with gray endpapers and housed in a corrugated cardboard clamshell case that measures approximately 10 x 13 inches. The book is in FINE condition and the cardboard case is in FINE- condition with minimal wear. Cited in The Photobook: A History by Parr & Badger.

        MYSTICISM: INITIATION AND DREAM. Deluxe Full Leather Edition

      California: Three Hands Press [Xoanon]., 2012.. First Edition, First Printing. Full Leather. Fine. First Edition. Octavo, bound in full brown goat leather, gilt titles on spine panel, design in blind on upper cover. 56 pp. One of 111 hand-numbered copies. Issued as Three Hands Press Occult Monograph No. 1. A fine copy of a beautiful book. ¶ Written as an undergraduate at SOAS University of London in 2001, 'Mysticism: Initiation and Dream' would foreshadow the concerns of Andrew Chumbley's later doctoral research on the transcendental nature of the magical dream. In the course of the exposition, the concepts of the Initiatic Dream are traced to furthest antiquity, epitomized by the participatory nature of the Mystic within the Oneiric Realm. The axiomata of Dream Reification and Rarefaction are introduced as defining processes of this twilight pilgrimage, both of a gnostic and illuminative character. At the time of his matriculation, Chumbley had already established a solid reputation as an occult author and practitioner of widely varying spiritual disciplines. His highly-acclaimed books Azoëtia (1992) and Qutub (1995) arose not only from the solid foundation of magical practice and theory, but also from a highly complex mystical dream-praxis, perfected for many years. Though forming the core of his coursework, 'Mysticism' - together with the bulk of his SOAS essays - were written in a transcendent dialogist style altogether in concord with the body of his occult work. Drawing upon sources as diverse as the dream-vision of the Christian saints, Sufic oneiric texts, and Bonpo termas, Chumbley here presents an arcane cartography of the dream as the eternal vessel for the perichoresis of matter and spirit.

        Reflections on New South Wales. Translated by Thomas Cullity

      Sydney: Hordern House, 2001. Large quarto, 310 x 225 mm, xxxii + 670 pp., with a portrait, twenty maps and illustrations and eight colour plates; in mint condition in the original quarter vellum and glazed boards. De luxe edition, limited to twenty-eight copies. One of just twenty-eight copies of the special issue on large paper. The original publication sold out in a few days; this de luxe version was prepared in a large quarto format, in a specially commissioned binding by Newbold and Collins. It too sold out rapidly. Publishers sometimes create special issues of their books re-imposed on especially large paper with wide margins. For this special issue using the large proof sheets prepared for the work the bindery retained the largest possible margins, making the page format 310 x 225 mm (as against the standard edition at 245 x 177 mm). The colour plates remain at their actual printed page size, as was usually the case with such issues of colour-plate books in the nineteenth century. The binding is a traditional quarter binding using English vellum for the spine, which is lettered in gilt, and old green glazed linen from a vintage bolt of cloth in store for the sides. The vellum used was supplied by the English firm which still supplies vellum and parchment to the British Houses of Parliament for official documents. This, along with the regular issue, represents the only edition in English of Freycinet's comprehensive examination of early New South Wales, one of the most important historical texts to deal with Australian settlement, and especially with the city of Sydney. The original text appeared as chapters 29 to 40 of the 'Historique' section of Freycinet's Voyage autour du monde. It was the late Thomas Cullity, with the help of Katharine Pratt and Jen and Bernice Pasquier, who took on the formidable task of making this sometimes very complex text readily accessible to the English-speaking reader. Originally published in an edition limited to just 300 copies, this even more limited de luxe version appeared a little later. Reflections on New South Wales provides a unique insight into the first fifty years of the colony's development. 'We have tried to demonstrate how a vast country that only recently was wild and almost empty, had passed from its primitive barbaric state to that degree of brilliant prosperity that makes it today the wonder of Europe' wrote Freycinet, one of the most articulate and exacting explorers ever to visit colonial Australia. His two visits to the colony, in 1802 and 1819, afforded him a unique opportunity to examine in detail the first English settlers and their interaction with the indigenous people, the complexities of the first legal system established in New South Wales, the health and welfare establishments, and the first educational facilities. With a finely-tuned and cultivated eye he observed the towns and their buildings, and recorded in detail the social and literary development of the colonial city. Freycinet's text was compiled from direct observations, ideas or comments by Freycinet himself as well as by his travelling companions in the Uranie voyage - Quoy, the chief surgeon, the naturalist Gaimard, and the artists Arago and Pellion - and from information attributed to conversations and correspondence with the leading citizens in the colony - Lachlan and Elizabeth Macquarie, John Macarthur, and Judge Barron Field, to name just a few.

        THE VOICES OF MARRAKESH A RECORD OF A VISIT

      San Francisco: The Arion Press, 2001.. Quarto. Cloth and pictorial boards. Fine, in stiff paper folded sleeve with etched labels. First printing in this format. Translated from the German by J.A. Underwood. Illustrated with six full-page etchings by William T. Wiley, and reproductions of 29 photographs by Karl Bissinger, taken in 1949 while on assignment for FLAIR magazine. One of 350 numbered copies (of 376) designed by Andrew Hoyem, signed by the photographer and artist (in the margin of their final image in the book). "The Voices of Marrakesh became a classic of literary travel writing and redefined the genre. Canetti provides no historical overview of the city or the country. His description of places and things is vivid, yet economical to the point of minimalism. The events Canetti describes could have taken place 100 years ago or yesterday or tomorrow" - Publisher.

        Studienblatt mit männlichen Figuren in unterschiedlichen Körperhaltungen, Kopf eines Papstes, Gruppe von Trauernden (wahrscheinlich zu einer Beweinung Christi) etc.

      . Feder in Braun, auf Bütten ohne Wasserzeichen, unten von zeitgenöss. Hand bezeichnet "alberto dura". 29,7:20,2 cm. - Fehlstelle am rechten Rand oben ergänzt. Provenienz: Sammlung F. Abbott, Edinburgh, Lugt 970. Vergleichsliteratur: Auktion Christie's New York, 24.01.2001, Lot 151 mit Abb.; Auktion Sotheby's London, 8.07.2004, Lot 66 mit Abb.. Die einzelnen Figurenstudien sollten vermutlich in Gemälden Verwendung finden: so der Mann auf der Leiter links, der sicher zu einer Kreuzabnahme gehört. Das gilt ebenso für die beiden Trauernden, Maria und Johannes, sowie für den nach rechts schreitenden Soldaten mit Helm. In dem zweimal in derselben Haltung gezeigten Mann kann man einen Fahnenträger erkennen, so ist vielleicht die erhobene Rechte zu erklären. Den knienden Mann in anbetender Haltung nach rechts findet man vergleichbar auf Aertgen van Leydens Triptychon (Mittelbild)"Erweckung des Lazarus", entstanden um 1530/35, im Besitz des Stedelijk Museum De Lakenhal, Leiden..
