Nixon, and Ronald Reagan, who proposed to future wife Nancy there, frequented the restaurant which was the site of the Academy Awards party for many years and which closed in 1995. This photograph was one of many signed celebrity photos that graced the restaurant's walls and that were auctioned off in the late 1990s.

        DU MODE D'EXISTENCE DES OBJETS TECHNIQUES

      Paris France: AUBIER, 2001. Book. Fine. Soft cover. Texte francais, couverture souple. État d'usage: comme neuf. 333 pages. Il s'agit de la réédition, revue et corrigée d'après les annotations que Gilbert Simondon avait portées sur les épreuves de la première édition en 1958, d'un ouvrage de référence qui se proposait de restituer à la technique la place qui lui revient dans la culture et de conférer à l'objet technique un statut ontologique, à côté de celui de l'objet esthétique ou de l'être vivant, en étudiant notamment le sens de sa genèse. Le philosophe s'insurge contre les conceptions qui voudraient que « les objets techniques ne contiennent pas de réalité humaine » et il cherche à comprendre les vraies sources de l'aliénation dont on accuse la technique d'être responsable. Le livre paraît dans un contexte où les problèmes liés au développement de la technique font depuis quelques années déjà l'objet de recherches, de réflexions voire de polémiques. On peut citer Lucien Febvre, Alexandre Koyré, Simone Weil, André Leroi-Gourhan, Georges Friedmann ou Jacques Ellul. Mais Simondon est le premier à avoir étudié les systèmes techniques de l'intérieur ainsi que dans leurs relations à l'homme. L'ouvrage fut salué par des auteurs comme Jean Baudrillard, qui dans Le système des objets cite deux pleines pages de l'analyse du moteur à essence, qu'il juge « essentielle » et Gilles Deleuze, qui s'y réfère dans Différence et répétition, lui consacra un article élogieux dans La revue philosophique de la France et de l'étranger. « Peu de livres font autant sentir à quel point un philosophe peut à la fois prendre son inspiration dans l'actualité de la science, et pourtant rejoindre les grands problèmes classiques en les transformant, en les renouvelant écrivait-il Les nouveaux concepts établis par Gilbert Simondon nous semblent d'une extrême importance »..

        Tracht

      New York: Lehmann Maupin, 2001. First Edition. Hardcover.. Fine/Fine. 4to. 64pp. Cream cloth in card slipcase. 76 colour plates with 2 gatefolds. First and only edition of 500 signed and numbered copies. More images available on request. Wonderful book in perfect condition. From Lehmann Maupin: "The only photographer ever given exclusive access to all the contestants of a Miss World¨ event, Teller spent eight hours in one evening taking brutally intimate head shots of all 88 contestants. Shot away from the stage and removed from the spotlights, the contestants--with caked on makeup, unwavering smiles, and bright eyes--start to appear interchangeable, like a carnival of culturally diverse Barbie dolls requiring lapel pins to indicate country of origin. Tracht is German for "costume," as in folkloric dress. Tracht is Teller's take on the dressing, the commodification beauty takes when pushed, much like the rest of fashion, to the extreme. The end effect of the ruthlessly efficient globalization of image manufacturing makes appearance artificial and style generic; what is left, then, but to extract its mesmerizing effect in the form of a sumptuously attractive artist's book, where one can truly revel in the mysteries of a world where Miss Israel looks more Californian than Miss USA, who in turn looks more Mittel European than Miss Estonia, who looks more Gaelic than Miss Ireland, who looks more Moorish thanÉ.Yet throughout, one cannot avoid noticing a certainÉsameness to these visages. Tracht deftly captures the costume of institutional modern beauty, and it is a thing to behold. Smartly sequenced by the acclaimed British design team Miles Murray Sorrell (FUEL), Tracht will leave you awash in beauty-world hyperbole. A perfect 10." Cited by Parr and Badger in the Photobook vol.2.

Collectors edition in a handmade clothbound box by Rottmann bookbinding, Berlin with a signed C-Print ( 30 x 40 cm), edition of 15 copies. Mit Beiträgen von Richard Sennett. Übersetzt von Sophie Lovell. Eine Sammlung von Bildern aus Pommern, Mecklenburg und Wisconsin. Wiebke Loeper zeigt in ihrem Buch Familienbilder zweier Männer. Beide haben in Pommern Schlachter bzw. Metzger gelernt, nahmen aber dann sehr unterschiedliche Lebenswege. Loeper zeichnet ihre Biografien nach. Sie vergleicht ihre Lebenswege und ihre alltägliche Arbeit als Schlachter in Wisconsin und Mecklenburg. Thomas Kothenschulte beschreibt in seiner Rezension in der Frankfurter Rundschau am 18.05.2002 das Buch wie folgt:"ein liebevolles Bändchen, das so streng und konzeptuell anmutet". Es war einmal.so könnte die Geschichte beginnen, die Wiebke Loeper . erzählt. Was zuerst als Sammelsurium von historischen Portrait- Familienaufnahmen, Postkarten und ausgebleichten Erinnerungsfotos daherkommt, entpuppt sich schließlich als die Dokumentation einer eindrucksvollen Familiengeschichte. Schon als Enkelin lauscht Wiebke Loeper ihrem Großvater Willi andächtig, wenn dieser Kindheitsgeschichten vom Hof und Familienbetrieb in Pommern erzählt. Und davon, dass es auch einen Onkel Willy in Amerika gab.Als Cousins geboren in Pommern lernten Beide den Beruf des Fleischers. Getrennt durch Weltwirtschaftskrise und Krieg ließ sich der Eine in den USA, der Andere in der späteren DDR nieder. Subtil, aber konzentriert begleitet die junge, in Leipzig ausgebildete Fotografin, das aus den Alben und Nachlässen ihrer Familie gesammelte Bildmaterial durch dokumentarische Aufnahmen aus der eigenen Hand. Die Fotografien des noch handwerklich geprägten Berufsalltags lassen ebenso wie die privaten Bilder die Unterschiede zwischen den Kontinenten verschwimmen und zeigen damit überraschende Parallelen im Lebensweg der beiden Verwandten auf. Rezension zum Buch, Claudia Stein, Photography Now 1.02, Berlin (D) Wiebke Loeper 1972 in Ost-Berlin geboren, studierte Fotografie bei den Professoren Arno Fischer und Johannes Brohm an der renomierten Leipziger Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst.

Loeper ist vor allem für ihre (auto)biographischen Arbeiten bekannt, die mehrfach weltweit gezeigt wurden.

        DAME JULIANA: THE ANGLING TREATYSE AND ITS MYSTERIES. By Frederick Buller and Hugh Falkus.

      Flyfisher's Classic Library. Moretonhampstead, Devon. - 2001 1st edition de luxe. Ppx,213,ad. Colour plates by Denys Ovenden, colour & b/w photographs, illustrations. Full goatskin gilt, silk marker. Fine copy in slip-case (with faint aroma of moth-balls). * The entire 500-year history of British angling literature is in a direct line of descent from a book that has caused more controversy than any other since. Almost nothing is known with certainty about The Treatyse of Fysshynge with an Angle. Some 30 years ago Hugh Falkus and Fred Buller set out to see what they could make of this. Despite being written in the rather obscure vocabulary and syntax of the 15th century, they knew that the text was insightful and intelligent. The author knew her or his subjectand wrote from experience and with considerable wisdom. After rendering thetext into modern English, they explored the evidence for and against the various opinions of the book's origins. Broadly favouring the traditional interpretations, they found fascinating reasons for accepting that it couldhave been written by "The Dame" at Sopwell, near the City of St. Albans. All of this has now been put together by Fred Buller, with help from Jack Heddon, Malcolm Greenhalgh, David Beazley, Professor Stephen Downes and Denys Ovenden. The result is a volume which celebrates the first, and in the opinion of some, the most significant book on angling in English or any other language. * This is copy number 46 of a limited de luxe edition of only 100 copies, and is signed and numbered by Fred Buller.

        Glimpse

      Portland and Berkeley: Triangular Press; Flying Fish Press, 2011. Fine. Number 55 of 100 copies. Signed by the highly regarded book artists, Julie Chen and Barbara Tetenbaum. In their statement about the book, they write: "Working together again after almost a decade (Ode to a Grand Staircase, 2001), Glimpse is a new collaboration ... inspired by a conversation about how a person translates their life experience into a narrative form: prominent events may stand out as the nameable moments, yet it is the space between these events that life, in fact, is lived." The mid-century photo album structure contains text written by Chen, examining this question. Her text is printed on both surfaces of each of the fifteen hinged sleeves. Windows in the sleeves reveal small glimpses of pull-out cards, each written and printed by Tetenbaum. The cards contain dates and events of the non-important moments of her life illustrated with diagrams, grids, and mundane imagery. Glimpse is letterpress printed using a combination of photopolymer plates, found images, wood blocks, wire, and handset type. It is housed in a box with magnetic closure. Box size: when closed: 8 1/8 inches x 11 3/4 inches x 1 1/8 inches.

        HATESHIP, FRIENDSHIP, COURTSHIP, LOVESHIP, MARRIAGE

      Toronto, Canada: McClelland & Stewart, 2001. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. Toronto, Canada: McClelland & Stewart, 2001. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 323 pages. Rare Alice Munro collectible set. A rare signed copy of "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage" with a rare fine copy of The New Yorker Magazine Millennial December 27, 1999/January 3, 2000 Issue. Retrospective collection of short stories. One of the greatest short story collections of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the American Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Alice Munro&#39;s eleventh collection. Nine luminous stories in which "men and women are subtly revealed. Personal histories, both complex and simple, unfold in rich detail of circumstance and feeling" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). Alice Munro is regarded by critics and loyal readers alike as the greatest living writer of the short story in English: "Our Chekhov" (Cynthia Ozick). The final story, "The Bear Came Over The Mountain", first appeared in The New Yorker Magazine Millennial Holiday Issue, was subsequently turned into a very fine film (entitled "Away From Her") by Sarah Polley. To celebrate Alice Munro&#39;s Nobel Prize win, it was published by The New Yorker in its entirety again (it&#39;s a novella-length story, taking up a third of the Issue, an unmistakable sign of The New Yorker&#39;s commitment to Munro in particular and its great writer-contributors in general) for its October 21, 2013 Issue. An absolute "must-have" set for Alice Munro collectors. <B><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Alice Munro. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. It comes with a rare fine copy of The New Yorker Magazine Millennial Holiday Issue, in which the collection&#39;s "summing-up" story, "The Bear Came Over The Mountain", first appeared. Throughout her long career, Munro made very few public appearances, and is a reluctant signer at best. As such, most of her books are signed on a bookplate, which are much less desirable than copies signed on either the title page or tipped-in page. This title is a classic. 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 pristine beauty. Beware: Most copies available online are subsequent printings or have serious flaws. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2013. One of the greatest living writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ALICE MUNRO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0771065256.

There, INS General Secretary Tom McCarthy received and interviewed writers, artists and philosophers whose work engages themes resonating with the concerns of the INS. The interviews (with among others, Simon Critchley, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Margarita Gluzberg, Will Self, Mark Aerial Waller) were transcribed and are published online.

        Le voyage de La Korrigane dans les mers du Sud

      Hazan - Paris 2001. 1 Volume/1. -- Comme Neuf -- Reliure éditeur cartonnée sous jaquette illustrée. Format in-4°( 31,3 x 24,7 cm )( 1650 gr ). -------- 239 pages. ********************************* "" Album de L'exposition qui a présenté l'odyssée entreprise autour du monde de 1934 à 1936 par cinq jeunes Français. Ce voyage est un exemple particulier de collecte, d'acquisition d'objets, de prises de vues photographiques et de croquis réalisés en Océanie. Une sélection de 200 objets provenant principalement du Musée de l'Homme mais aussi de collections particulières et du musée national des Arts d'Afrique et d'Océanie est exposée jusqu'au 10 mars 2003. Le 28 mars 1934, la goélette La Korrigane, ancien morutier d'Islande, quitte le port de Marseille pour un voyage autour du monde qui allait durer plus de 2 ans. À son bord, 9 hommes d'équipage et les 5 membres de l'expédition : les couples Étienne et Monique de Ganay, Charles et Régine van den Broek d'Obrenan et leur ami Jean Ratisbonne. Ils sont tous épris d'aventure, les récits des pérégrinations du navigateur solitaire Alain Gerbault les ont fait rêver. Leur expédition, soutenue par le musée d'Ethnographie du Trocadéro, ancêtre du Musée de l'Homme, se déroule dans l'effervescence culturelle des années 1930. Partis de Marseille, ils traversent le canal de Panama et ils naviguent sur l'océan Pacifique pendant un an et demi, parcourant d'abord la Polynésie - Tahiti, les Marquises, Fidji - puis la Mélanésie - Nouvelle-Calédonie, Nouvelles Hébrides (l'actuel Vanuatu), Salomon, Amirauté (actuelle province de Manus, Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée) et Nouvelle-Guinée (séparée maintenant en deux entités : Papua, province indonésienne d'une part, Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée d'autre part). Ils reviennent à Marseille le 17 juin 1936 par les Indes néerlandaises (actuelle Indonésie), Ceylan (actuel Sri Lanka) et l'Égypte. Le retour de La Korrigane intervient alors que les élections viennent de porter le Front populaire au pouvoir en France. Paul Rivet s'active à la création du futur Musée de l'Homme qui viendra remplacer le musée d'Ethnographie du Trocadéro. Une grande partie des objets et des photographies rapportés de ce voyage y seront déposés. Ils constitueront l'exposition temporaire à l'occasion de l'inauguration du Musée de l'Homme en 1938. Après le décès de Charles van den Broek en 1956, les objets seront dispersés lors d'une vente à Drouot les 4 et 5 décembre 1961. La générosité des familles des membres de l'expédition permettra au Musée de l'Homme d'en conserver environ 800. Les Korrigans ont rapporté une documentation qui demeure un témoignage irremplaçable pour la connaissance des sociétés océaniennes.

        Rembrandt&#39;s Self

      New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Co.. [ND but 2001]. Portfolio of five etchings by Susan Weil, signed by Weil on the colophon in pencil and initialed by her with the print number in pencil on each print. Printed on Japanese Gampi paper, chine colle, on Hahnemuhle Copper paper by Peter Pettengill at Wingate Studio. The etchings are taken from re-strikes of the Rembrandt Self-Portrait etchings purchased by Susan Weil while studying art in Paris at the Academie Julien in the 1940&#39;s. For this suite, she has cut up the etchings and collaged them to achieve the images herein. The images were made from photogravue plates made by Jon Goodman. Ms. Weil has been experimenting with the use of images made from blueprint paper since 1951 when she and her (then) husband, Robert Rauschenberg, were working at Black Mountain College. Her use of collage has dated from this time as well. She has, obviously, has made these mediums her own. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/9656.jpg >Image.</A><br>
