        The Geometry Of Innocence: The Limited Slipcased Edition

      Ostfildern-ruit, Germany: Hatje Cantz Publishers(2001). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 128 pages. Collection of photographs. One of the most important art photography books of our time. Limited Slipcased Edition of 50 copies. Precedes, is superior to, and should not be confused with the regular trade edition. They have the same ISBN. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Ken Schles: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with black titles embossed on the spine, as issued. Photographs and Manifesto/Essay by Ken Schles. The title comes from the lyrics of Bob Dylan's "Tombstone Blues". Text fragments by Franz Kafka, Ralph Ellison, Walter Lippmann, and Italo Calvino. Original 8 X 10 inch photographic print matted, framed, and laid into its own black cloth folder. Matching black cloth slipcase. Printed on thick, glossy stock paper in Germany to the highest standards. Presents Ken Schles' "The Geometry of Innocence". His ambitious second collection. There is something disturbing and uncompromising about each image, by itself and in the context of the collection's relentlessness. Schles' point is that we should not be distracted but instead be completely immersed. If "Invisible City" is almost claustrophobically inward-looking, "The Geometry of Innocence" looks outward, at the larger world, and sees both good and bad, cause for hope, and reason for despair. Schles also has a didactic purpose, articulated in his Manifesto/Essay, which is "must-reading" for anyone uncritically enamored of photography (this includes many serious photographers and critics). While his essay is critical about photography, Schles is obviously not against photography. Indeed, the latter stance would be self-defeating because even the most subversive, "anti-photographic" photograph can be easily coopted by the system to reinforce unjust social structures and feed an insatiable and corrupt mass culture. Instead, he is for a photography that somehow retains its subversive power and empowers people given the fact that "we are formed by a flawed society. Yet, however boldly or tenuously we engage our lives, we love, we hate, we struggle" (Ken Schles). An absolute "must-have" title for Ken Schles collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Slipcased Edition, indicated as such on the Back Copyright Page. It comes with an 8 X 10 inch original photographic print that is very prominently and beautifully numbered, titled, and signed in pencil on verso by the photographer: "Ken Schles The End of the World From The Geometry of Innocence 43/50". This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is one of only two copies of the Limited Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: The other copy apparently has a major publisher's creasing flaw that is not at all present in this copy. A rare signed copy thus. 106 color, 87 duotone plates, 1 original print. One of the most brilliant photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER KEN SCHLES TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3775710116.

In the original maroon cloth-textured binding, spine titled in gilt, bright, corners sharp, head of spine faintly blunted. In the protected unclipped pictorial dust jacket, clean and crisp: just forward of its upper joint, there is a vertical indentation (as if someone had idly run their thumbnail down it): this is visible in the photo of the jacketed book; a few edges are very slightly blunted, and there is a small pucker to the head of the lower joint. Included, should you want it, is the Waterstones 'Signed by the author' band: this has a couple of tiny scuffs to the edges. A superb copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Orthopathische Medizin. Die Verbindung von Orthopädie und Osteopathie durch das Fasziendistorsionsmodell (Gebundene Ausgabe) Stephen Typaldos (Autor)

      Verlag f. Ganzheitl. Med, 2001. Ein Zusammenbringen von Orthopädie und Osteopathie über das Fasziendistorsionsmodell. Die Orthopathische Medizin ist ein Heilverfahren, das der Autor entwickelt hat, um über das Fasziendistorsionsmodell manuelle Behandlungen in die orthopädische Praxis zu integrieren. Innerhalb des Fasziendistorsionsmodells werden Veränderungen des faszialen Bindegewebes im muskulo-skelettalen System aufgrund von Verletzungen für ein breites Spekturm orthopädischer Indikationen, wie z.B. Verstauchungen des Fußgelenks und Schulter-Arm-Syndrom verantworlich gemacht. In bestechender Systematik werden sechs Arten von Fasziendistorsionen theoretisch beschrieben und praktisch bezüglich ihrer diagnostischen Kriterien und genau abgestimmten therapeutischen Interventionen abgehandelt. Gerade bei akuten Krankheitsbildern kann der Autor nach langjähriger Tätigkeit in der Notaufnahme einer Klinik bemerkenswerte Therapieerfolge aufweisen. So verzichtet er seit Jahren z.B. bei Verstauchungen, Rupturen und Frakturen der Fußgelenke auf Gipsverbände bzw. Schienungsbehandlungen. Die praktische Vorgehensweise in der Orthopathischen Medizin wird im Buch am Beispiel von Verstauchungen des Sprunggelenks und des Schulter-Arm-Syndroms ausführlich besprochen. Weitere Themen sind Ischiolumbalgien, chronische Schmerzzustände, Lähmungen usw.

        Alair Gomes

      Paris, France: Fondation Cartier Pour L'Art Contemporain/Thames & Hudson(2001). First Edition / First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. 160 pages. Retrospective collection of male nudes. One of the most beautiful erotic art photography books ever published. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, including the Brazilian Edition. Published in a tiny print run by Thames & Hudson in conjunction with Fondation Cartier as a hardcover original only. This English-Language Edition is exactly the same as the French-Language monograph. It is a Facsimile Edition while being, at the same time, more widely accessible (because it is in English). The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Fondation Cartier: Oversize-volume format. Metallic-silver hard boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Alair Gomes. Text by various contributors in felicitous English translations. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Paris, France to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark retrospective exhibition of the same name held at the Fondation Cartier Pour L'Art Contemporain in 2001. Presents "Alair Gomes". A posthumous appreciation of the erotic art photography of the Brazilian Renaissance Man/artist/photographer Alair Gomes. "Gomes (1921-1992) was in his 50's when he began to develop a body of photographic work focusing exclusively on the athletic young men to be found on the beach at Rio de Janeiro. This tireless collector of books, pictures, and films decided to transform the thousands of pages of his diaries into images, composing an immense erotic tableau of black-and-white photographs devoted to the beauty of the male body. The most original erotic photography of the past few decades" (Publisher's blurb). Why did this world-class scholar make a sudden swerve to male nude photography? His own answer: "The photographic nude may have outshone all others in the human adventure called art" (Alair Gomes). Gomes' aesthetics guiltlessly capitalize upon the innate voyeurism of photography, that is to say, whether the subject is explicitly sexual or not, photography's gaze is always erotic. As long as he or she is not doing it for the money, every photographer's subject is dictated by his or her own sexual desire: Gomes' images are homoerotic because he was homosexual and as such, drawn to masculinity (rather than femininity). Photographers who are drawn to both masculine and feminine beauty are rare; they are not "bisexual", increasingly a meaningless label, but pansexual. Among other Hitchcockian voyeurisms, Gomes photographed hundreds of Brazilian men using a telescopic camera, without their knowledge or consent. The "trade-off" is that the images expand our collective visual vocabulary, which Alair Gomes' ground-breaking photography does. Their raw, "not-photo-shopped", Latin-American hot-ness has prompted his admirers to say that there was nothing else like it before he came along. At one point, in Europe as well as the United States and even Latin America itself, that was probably the case. Such is Alair Gomes' pervasive (and unacknowledged) influence that we see him everywhere today: In copycat books, massive billboards, glossy magazine advertisements, and of course, the Internet. An absolute "must-have" title for Alair Gomes collectors. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover/First Printing/English-Language Facsimile Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online command incredible prices, topping $2000. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. 211 duotone plates. One of the greatest photographers of the male nude of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 2742731644.

        Richard Avedon: Made in France (Gebundene Ausgabe)von Richard Avedon (Autor)

      Fraenkel Gallery,US, 2001. This major new monograph stands as an important rediscovery of a small but central body of work in the career of one of the world's best known and beloved photographers. The Richard Avedon images presented here, many for the first time, were made in Paris for "Harper's Bazaar" during the 1950s. What is particularly special about this presentation is that the images are being reproduced to the exact scale of the engraver's prints made for Avedon by the master printer Andre Gremola, and are uncropped, on their original mounts, with all of the artist's notations on both front and back. Thus, they provide a remarkable portrait of the working methods of one of the most influential fashion photographers in history. This oversized book, measuring 12 x15 inches, is being printed without compromise with tritone plates throughout, and will be a stunning object in its own right. With this body of work, which includes the photographer's iconographic "Dovima with Elephants, Cirque d'Hiver, 1955", Avedon broke radical new ground in the history of photography. He documented the moment in which postwar France was striving through fashion to reclaim its cultural eminence. Judith Thurman, fashion writer for "The New Yorker" contributes the book's introduction. Edition of 100. "And if a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it's as though I've neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. I know that the accident of my being a photographer has made my life possible."-Richard Avedon "(Avedon) is a passionate artist, always trying to climb inside his image. He gets there, too. It's a self-portrait in the eye of the beholder who is also, and so strenuously, beheld." -Thomas Hess "Here, for instance, is all that I read in an Avedon photograph, the seven gifts it gives me: first of all, truth, the sensation of truth, the exclamation of truth; then character (pensivity, melancholy, severity, satisfaction, gaiety, etc.); then type (the politician, the writer, the executive); then Eros, a commitment, whether seductive or repulsive, to affect; then death, the corpse's vocation; then too the past, what has been caught, taken, can never come back again, can no longer be touched; lastly. . .lastly the seventh meaning, which is just the one which resists all the rest, the inexpressible supplement, the evidence that, within the image, there is always something else: the inexhaustible, the intractable element of Photography (desire?)." -Roland Barthes Essay by Judith Thurman. 40 quadratone. 12 x 14.75 in.

        Austerlitz [Signed Copy]

      London:: Hamish Hamilton,, 2001.. First English edition.. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. [iv], 415pp, illustrated with photographs. Extremely fresh copy, unread and never opened beyond the prelims, signed by Sebald to the title page. In the original maroon cloth-textured binding, spine titled in gilt, bright, corners sharp, head of spine faintly blunted. In the protected unclipped pictorial dust jacket, clean and crisp: just forward of its upper joint, there is a vertical indentation (as if someone had idly run their thumbnail down it): this is visible in the photo of the jacketed book; a few edges are very slightly blunted, and there is a small pucker to the head of the lower joint. Included, should you want it, is the Waterstones 'Signed by the author' band: this has a couple of tiny scuffs to the edges. A superb copy.

        Die sprechenden Maschinen Studer-Revox - Das Lebenswerk des Audiopioniers Willi Studer [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Peter Holenstein Das Buch enthält die gründlich recherchierte, dokumentierte und bebilderte Geschichte der Marken "Studer" und "Revox", Begriffe, die weltweit zu Synomen für perfektionierte Audiotechnik wurden, und es schildert den Werdegang von Willi Studer und seiner Firma. Auf einer zweiten "Tonspur" faßt der Autor die Geschichte der Tonaufnahme von den Visionären bis in die Gegenwart zusammen, die vor mehr als hundert Jahren begann. Wir haben die Tonbandmaschine so perfektioniert, dass die musikalischen Grenzen weniger bei der Technik, sondern mehr beim menschlichen Ohr liegen.» Dieser Werbespruch trifft - wie ich finde - den Charakter der legendären Audioprodukte präzis, mit denen die Schweizer Firma Studer-Revox unter ihrem Gründer Willi Studer die Welt eroberte - zumindest die Welt der Ton- und Radiostudios und die der Sprachlabors. Zu ihren bekanntesten Produkten gehört dabei fraglos der nimbusreiche Revox-Plattenspieler, der dank seiner unübertroffenen Qualität heute noch in allen grossen Radio- und vielen Tonstudios im Einsatz ist. Zu erfahren ist dies und noch viel mehr übrigens in dieser kurzweiligen, faktenreichen, reich bebilderten Monografie. Denn sie gibt nicht nur Einblick in Studers Leben, sondern erzählt auch, wie sich seine Firma vom Kleinbetrieb zum Weltkonzern entwickelte und dabei den Rundfunkbereich wie das private Musikhören revolutionierte. Zudem stellt sie im zweiten Teil jedes Modell in Wort und Bild vor, das Studer-Revox jemals produzierte. KurzDas grandiose Buch ist schlicht ein Must für Studer-Revox-Fans! Spannend wie ein Krimi und bis ins letzte recherchiert beschreibt Peter Holenstein die Geschichte der Rundfunktechnik und speziell die des Audio-Pioniers Willi Studer,dessen Produkte bis zur "digitalen Revolution" Kultstatus hatten. Fast jede Seite läßt das Herz eines Revox-Fans höher schlagen.Ein "AHa"- Erlebnis folgt dem anderen. Man blättert in diesem Buch wie in einem persönlichen Poesiealbum der Technik.Ein tolles Werk von Peter Holenstein,der nach eigenen Angaben vier Jahre Arbeit in dieses Buch investiert hat. Das Buch beschreibt den Werdegang und die Lebensgeschichte von Willi Studer sehr ausführlich und detailliert. Sein unendliches Streben nach Qualität und Spitzenleistungen wurden belohnt durch stetiges Wachstum und die weltweite Verbreitung der beiden Markennamen Studer und Revox. Der technische Teil des Buches führt den Leser durch ein virtuelles Museum mit sämtlichen Tonbandgeräten und Studiomaschinen, welche von 1948 bis 1990 hergestellt wurden. Dieses Buch ist ein Muss für Studiofreaks und Analogliebhaber.

        The handmade papers of Japan. A biographical sketch of its author and an account of the genesis and production of the book.with a reprint of the original text by Thomas Keith Tindale and Harriet Ramsey Tindale

      Bird & Bull Press, Newtown 2001 - Edition limited 170 copies, this the bookbinder Greg Campbell's copy, Campbell-Logan Bindery, and out-of-series; pp. 197, [7]; illustrations, facsimiles, photos, and samples tipped in; original quarter morocco, leather spine label, Japanese cloth over boards, cover stamped in gilt; prospectus laid in. In a cloth covered clamshell box with leather spine label. Fine. The gilt Japanese titling on the upper cover has been stamped upside down. Sid Berger called us a day or two after we'd catalogued this book and gave us the story. The entire edition was bound with the Japanese text on the cover upside down. When Morris received the book he was, shall we say, disturbed, and sent the entire edition back to Campbell-Logan where the book was stripped of its cloth cover and the error corrected. Berger tells me that only 3 of the edition still have the original binding with the upside down text: his, Henry Morris's, and this copy from the chastened binder. The first 4-volume set of Tindale's Handmade Papers of Japan is one of the finest books on Japanese papermaking published. This edition expands the text and includes a number of full page illustrations, color photographs, and 7 paper samples tipped in. Forty-Four A66. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Flora Agaricina Neerlandica - 5: Critical Monographs on Families of Agarics and Boleti Occurring in the Netherlands von M. E. Noordeloos (Herausgeber), Noordeloos E. Noordeloos (Autor)

      Taylor & Francis, 2001. A critical standard flora of all families of agarics and boleti in the Netherlands and surrounding countries. Although focused on the Netherlands, the work can be used in the whole of western and northern Europe, excluding species that are confined to arctic or alpine habitats.;The flora offers extensive, completely mutually comparable descriptions and line drawings of habit and the most important microscopial characters of all species occurring in the Netherlands and adjacent countries, all based upon personal observations and field notes. Furthermore, practical keys are given to accepted species, as well as correct names of, concise synonymies for, and ecological and distributional data. Extralimital taxa of which occurrence in the Netherlands can be expected on account of their ecology and/or geographical distribution are included in the keys, whereas a concise synonymy, references to selected descriptions and illustrations, and a short diagnostic description are given in textual part. For various reasons a number of taxa less likely to be encountered in the Netherlands are included only in the keys merely with their author citation and one reference to the literature.; Each volume contains introductory chapters with an extensive glossary of terms and lists of abbreviations of authors' names and bibliographic abbreviations. Noordeloos; M. E. National Herbarium of the Netherlands
