        Five Poems

      [Las Vegas]: [Rainmaker Editions]. [2002]. Proof sheets, consisting of two frameable leaves, from the limited edition of this collection of five poems by Morrison with illustrations by Kara Walker. Two leaves only: the first carries the third stanza of "Eve Remembering" and is blank on the verso; the second features Walker's art work, with the title page of "The Perfect Ease of Grain" on the verso. "Proof" in pencil in bottom margin. Slight corner crease to the leaf with text; else fine. A notable collaboration between two of the most highly regarded African-American women in their respective arts -- Morrison a Nobel Prize winner in Literature and Walker a visual artist using the silhouette as a form, who was the youngest recipient ever of a MacArthur grant when she received one in 1997 at the age of 28; she was selected by Time magazine in 2007 as one of the 100 most influential figures of our time The original silhouette for one of the images in this collaboration with Morrison sold at auction for over $30,000. The edition for which this is a proof sheet was limited to 425 copies; it seems safe to assume that far fewer proofs were done -- probably a tiny handful. . First Edition.

        Bilboquet. Translated by John Crombie

      [Paris]: Kickshaws Press. 2002. One of 220 copies of the first English edition. Hand set and hand printed in Nicolas Cochin by John Crombie who has translated the text from the original French. The title page is in black with the title in red and blue; each page is decorated with a colored ball and string, blue and pink, followed by green and pink, followed by a dark and lighter pink, the letterpress over the colorful balls and sticks and woven string tethers that snake around each page. Page size: 6-7/8 inches x 5 inches; 20 leaves. Bound by Antonio Perez-Noriega: simplified structure of red morocco, with onlays in pink suede in shape of a ball on front panel, title and author stamped in blue on onlay with blue dot in center of circle, blind-stamped line attached to circle representing string (the two elements of the game, bilboquet), the English title, "Cup and Ball" stamped in blue along blind-tooled string line; rear panel with pink suede onlay floating up to top edge (string of game) affixed to "cup" of game represented with blue suede onlay surrounded by pink suede with red dot stamped in circle of blue suede, blue suede guards with onlay of tan suede circle (the ball), matching slipcase and sleeve of blue paper over boards with 1/4 red calf at spine and edges stamped in blue with auther and title separated by gold dot, original white wrappers printed in red and blue bound in, signed on inside front turn-in with blind stamp "antonio / p.n.," fine. & John Crombie tells the reader that this is a translation of a story about bilboquet, better known in the Anglo-Saxon world as &#39;cup-and-ball&#39;, which swept Europe in the sixteenth century, being played alike in royal courts and on the streets. The game&#39;s purpose is to toss the (usually wooden) ball- suitably holed, and tethered to the peg by a string - into the air and catch it either on the spike at one end or in the cup at the other. The word itself, which denotes both the game and the plaything, derives from the French "bille," a marble or ball, and "bouquer" to thrust or impale, as with the horn or a "bouc" (he-goat). Charles Cros (1842-1888), French poet, humorous writer, and inventor, performed many early experiments with color, developing an early color photo process. Surely he would have been pleased with this colorful interpretation of his short story. This is a lovely book perfectly capturing the simplicity and joy of the game.& John Crombie&#39;s Kickshaws Press usually is based in Paris and is known for publishing small, witty, and extremely elegant books. This title reinforces that reputation. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/9664.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        PARIS + KLEIN

      New York City, NY: Distributed Art Publishers (DAP) , 2002. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Distributed Art Publishers (DAP) , 2002. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 346 pages. Collection of photographs. One of the greatest photography books of our time. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. A brilliant production by William Klein: Oversize-volume format. Black hard boards with titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by William Klein. Afterword by Anthony Lane. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Paris, France to the very highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition in Paris in 2002. Presents William Klein&#39;s sixth and final "city" collection. The photographs by the expatriate American photographer, who is now in his 80&#39;s, represent a significant portion of a life lived in Paris. The first volume in his great Series, "Life Is Good And Good For You In New York", was also first published in Paris, and is now considered a classic. It was followed by "Rome", "Moscow", and "Tokyo" in quick succession, and upon his return to photography, "Torino &#39;90". "Paris + Klein" (the only one in which Klein added his name to the title) took much longer to produce and complete. William Klein said he wanted to do something different (but of course) and also somehow capture the city in all its rich diversity, that is, its often-overlooked earthy vitality as well as its exquisite beauty, William Klein&#39;s Paris (the city as paradox) rather than Eugene Atget&#39;s (the city as pathos). Although it would have been really odd if William Klein did not do a book on his adopted city, a collection of images on Paris has always been another challenge altogether, for him or any other photographer, because there is a whole shelf of great photography books on Paris. It is the most photographed city in the world, with images dating back to the inception of photography itself. The camera was invented there in 1839, and the French were the very first to accord photography the status of art, preceding London, New York, and Tokyo, the other great contemporary centers of photographic culture. Klein inaugurated a revolution in photography by breaking with the medium&#39;s taboos and traditions. He developed a radically new way to take pictures, perfecting his graphic design-based style by incorporating elements of black humor, social criticism, satire, reportage, cinema, literature, and poetry, thereby creating a unique look that has since been so widely copied by other artists, graphic designers, and photographers (without credit being given to its creator) it is now part of our collective photographic vocabulary. A "must-have" title for William Klein collectors. <b><i> This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in metallic-silver marker on the title page by William Klein. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 241 color, 91 duotone plates. "Paris + Klein" was selected by The New Yorker Magazine as The Best Photography Book of the Year 2002. William Klein&#39;s "Life Is Good And Good For You In New York: Trance Witness Revels" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER WILLIAM KLEIN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1891024698.

During his tenure in that position, he also designed and landscaped a seaside palace for Selim&rsquo;s sister, Princess Hatice. While in Constantinople, Melling executed a number of astonishing panoramic views of the city and its environs. Melling returned to Paris in about 1803. In 1809 he set up an engraving studio for the purpose of reproducing these drawings. The completed images were published as a series of fascicles that were sent out to subscribers. The last one appeared in 1819. The Ertug & Kocabiyik facsimile edition of the complete book is produced from the original &ldquo;elephant folio&rdquo;, an unfolded first edition in the collection of Ahmet Ertug. The technical aspects of the project were done under the supervision of Mr Ertug in Switzerland by some of the world&rsquo;s leading facsimile specialists. This outstanding facsimile is a very limited edition of only 50 copies bound in leather that is intended for connoisseurs of exceptionally fine books. The binding and decoration of all the leather-bound copies were done by hand. The book measures 50 by 66 cms. The foldout image plates are 65 by 97 cms. There are 48 views of Constantinople in the late 18th century and also three maps. The text for this edition is bound and presented separately. The descriptions of the views in the facsimile edition are in the original French and an English translation is also provided.

        Outstanding Cuban archive ranging from a 1956 Batista signed document to a 2002 Castro signed Letter of State. Most notable is a 9pp memorandum from the Ministry of Foreign Relations relating to the "Bay of Pigs" and comparing JFK to Hitler in this regard. "The road of the North American imperialism is the same as Hitler's . . ."

      This fascinating Cuba archive traces the reparations of hostile Latin relations and attitudes after the Bay of Pigs. On April 17, 1961, approximately 1,300 members of a CIA-supported counter-revolutionary Cuban exile force stormed the beaches of Cuba, beginning a brief military adventure which ended in total failure. The incident quickly became a foreign policy debacle for President Kennedy, who approved the plan just three months into his presidency. A 9pp unsigned memorandum could have been written by Raul Roa, who was the Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs from 1959 to 1973. Roa was appointed Foreign Minister by Castro and he gained international prominence with his blunt diplomacy. In the 1970s he worked to restore good relations with other Latin American countries, and in 1973 he signed an anti-hijacking agreement with the United States. The memorandum typed on "Republica De Cuba, Minister of Foreign Relations" stationery is dated in Havana, May 5, 1961 "Year of the Education." Less than a month after the Bay of Pigs. The document measures 13 x 8.5 reads in part, "Acts of terrorism, sabotage and all types of criminal attacks followed since receiving North American support . . . As occurrence of an especially serious incident aimed to violate the rules of international rights and for the effects that followed, we must mention the case of a strongly armed boat that penetrated the Bay of Santiago de Cuba and fired upon a petroleum refinery causing damages, one death and many wounded . . . On the last April 15th of this year, war planes that the United States have reserved for attacks on Cuba, have bombed the cities of Santiago de Cuba, San Antonio de los Banos and Havana causing many damages, killing eight persons and leaving several others wounded . . . On the 17th of the same month, on the beach of Giron, in the South of the island, took place the landing of mercenary invaders trained in the territory of the United States, in its colony of Puerto Rico, Guatemala and Nicaragua. They were armed with very powerful weapons that were transported in ships provided by agents of such countries, were escorted in the crossing by North American naval units from a departure point correspondent to the last two countries mentioned above. The invaders received from the United States a quantity of weapons and, since no other power has superior forces than this one, they included naval units, also had Sherman tanks, strong artillery with cannons without backward movement - exclusive weapons of North American Imperialism - and a large number of airplanes, including four units of the type "Sabre" of the North American Army. After they broke off their offensive, these invaders left behind almost one hundred victims among our population, as well as a considerable quantity of wounded persons. Few days before this invasion, President Kennedy had said that the United States had no intention to intervene in these operations. After they produced the attack, and before the imputations that arose from different officials about its failure, including those from ex-President Eisenhower, President Kennedy, with cynical forgetfulness about his recent words, assumed all the responsibility for the failure of the invasion, praising much later the traitors in interviews with the simulated chiefs of the conspiracy, arriving to the enormity of declaring in front of the Society of Newspaper Editors that the principle of non-intervention remained unchanged unless it is subject to the convenience of North Americans' interests, among the major contempt from international opinion that he recognized having deceived, especially the nations of this hemisphere . . . During interviews transmitted by television and radio, the conspirators, including the principal figures that were captured, admitted that the invasion was organized, equipped and transported by the American Government. Our Prime Minister, Doctor Fidel Castro, conducted one such interview and personally interrogated these prisoners . . . The North American Government, in its determination to invade Cuba, remains indifferent to the massive protests of the population and governments of Latin America and other places in the world, as well as those of famous personalities, reporters, professors, students, workers' organizations, etc. From a distance, it simulates attacks to the North American territory and dispatches naval units and troops to the Base at Guantanamo; it organizes urgent interviews with military and political leaders to wage war, to prepare the condition for an attack on Cuba. The aggressive government of the United States does not mention one single hostile, aggressive or provocative act from our nation's side that could explain its aggressive conduct; it declared that all the hostile maneuvers and the attack itself that they organized were due to the reason that it could not accept that Cuba, exercising its sovereignty and self-determination, gave itself one or another form of government not to the liking of the North Americans. Hitler exhibited the same tactic against the people of Europe, that he later dominated using violence. The road of the North American imperialism is the same as Hitler's. If they achieve the goal of destroying Cuba, they will consider themselves almighty enough to crush any nation that will dare to oppose its domination or will cross them or disagree with its imperialistic directions. They will not achieve this because the people of Cuba is ready to fight and will answer with violence to violence." When JFK entered the White House in January of 1961, the training and planning for the exile invasion were near completion. The CIA had organized a brigade of about 1,400 exile fighters at a secluded camp in Guatemala, and was infiltrating advance teams of organizers and saboteurs into Cuba. President Kennedy was excited at the prospect of secretly arranging Castro's overthrow, and took an active interest in the planning. However, the President was concerned that the size of the operation would threaten his ability to deny U.S. involvement with the exile brigade. Throughout the preparations for the invasion he was enthusiastic about the CIA's Cuba program, but as the planned D-Day approached, Kennedy became increasing worried that the U.S. hand in the operation could no longer be concealed. Kennedy was as determined to have the Cuba program remain secret. As the operation kicked into high gear in mid-April, the CIA and the Kennedy administration labored to maintain the fiction that the exiles attacking Cuba were not under the employ of the United States. A Raul Roa signed document typed on the Republic De Cuba Ministry of Foreign Relations stationery in Havana on May 7, 1963, the "year of reorganization" is addressed to Jose Fellman Velarde, the Minister of Foreign relations of Bolivia. The document reads in full, "Your Excellency: I have the honor to advise Your Excellency that the Revolutionary Government of Cuba has designated Mr. Roberto Lassale del Amo, Fully-Empowered Minister, to fill the position of Business Chief at interim for your Esteemed Government. I ask that your Excellency accept Mr. Lassale del Amo in the role above mentioned and I take this opportunity to reiterate the assurance of my highest respect." The document is signed by Raul Cruz. The earliest document in this archive is a July 18, 1956 document by Fulgencio Batista addressed to Victor Paz Estenssoro, President of the Republic of Bolivia. The document was written in Havana at the Presidential Palace on July 18, 1956 and reads in part, "Wishing to interpret the feelings of affection and true friendship of the People and the Government of Cuba toward the Bolivian nation, I have decided to entrust its representation in the solemn act of the formal introduction of the First Magistracy of Your Country by the elected President, His Excellency Mister Hernan Siles Zuazo, which is upcoming, to Mister Doctor Emilio Cancio Bello y Mazutier, Extraordinary and Fully-Empowered Ambassador of Cuba to Uruguay; assuming the position of Extraordinary Ambassador in Special Mission, he will present to Your Excellency my sincere homage of high consideration and appreciation and will express to Your worthy successor the warm wishes that I formulate for the success and full outcome of your Government, for the purpose of consolidating even more, if at all possible, the traditional and fraternal friendship that fortunately exists between our two countries . . ." The document is signed by Batista and the Minister of State. A final extended handshake towards the future comes from a 2002 Fidel Castro document to Gonzalo Sanchez, President of the Republic of Bolivia. The document reads in full, "With the wish to continue the maintenance of the cordial, friendly relations that exist between the Republic of Cuba and the Republic of Bolivia, I have chosen Mister Luis Felipe Vazquez Vazquez to represent the people and the government of the Republic of Cuba as Extraordinary, Fully- Empowered Ambassador in front of the Government of Your Excellency. Mr. Vazquez Vazquez is tasked with supporting the interest of both countries; the integrity and aptitude that he exhibits allow me to hope that he will gain the esteem and the kindness of Your Excellency. With this confidence, I beg your Excellency to extend full faith and credit to what Mr. Vazquez Vazquez will say in name of Cuba and, most importantly, when he will express my sincere wishes for the prosperity of this Country and for Your personal happiness. In the Palace of the Revolution, Havana, on August 8, 2002." Signed by Fidel Castro.

        A Little Flora of Common Plants

      Eagle Gallery London: Eagle Gallery. 2002. One of 12 copies, all on BKK Rives and Tosa Shoji paper, each signed and numbered by the artist. Page size: 11-7/8 inches x 7-3/8 inche; 78pp. All with 9 dry points by Jane Joseph, editioned by Marie Walker and 9 poems by Mel Gooding printed letterpress by Graham Bignell at New North Press on Tosa Shoji, set in Legacy Sans. Bound by Tracey Rowledge: handmade olive green Japanese paper over paper boards with title printed in silver on front cover, housed in publisher's white slipcase, fine. The 9 dry points perfectly complement Gooding's verse. Joseph's images of common plants such as pussy willow, ragwort, bluebells, and the like are anything but prosaic. Rather she infuses her images with the dignity of all living things and finds beauty in the simple lines. Gooding's verse does the same - "Close garden cousin of wild 'nonscriptus' / 'washes' paler (but not less beautiful)..." - Garden Bluebell. For anyone who loves flowers and gardening, this book will have particular resonance. See an Image.

Ekpedisjonen var organisert som et samarbeidsprosjekt mellom franske og nordiske naturforskere, og den ble gjennomført i form av tre sommertokt til norsk og arktisk farvann i perioden 1838-40. Forskningsområdene var geologi, nordlys, marinbiologi og botanikk. Ekspedisjonen var i hovedsak naturvitenskaplig orientert, med hovedvekt på geologi, botanikk, marinbiologi, jordmagnetisme, astronomi, og nordlys, men viste også sterk interesse for allmenn-kulturelle forhold og levevis i Norge, ikke minst blant samene i Finnmark. Ekspedisjonen resulterte i en omfattende vitenskapelig rapport på 26 bind som ble utgitt i Frankrike. I tillegg ble det utgitt fem bind med litografier og tegninger av kunstnere som deltok på ekspedisjonen. En rikt illustrerad praktbok med text på norska och franska.

        Reflections. Photo Alternatives by Susan Weil

      Vincent FitzGerald & Co. New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Co.,. 2002. One of 20 copies, all on special paper handmade by Paul Wong at Dieu Donne Papermill, each signed and numbered on the colophon by Susan Weil. The artist has titled, signed, numbered, and dated each print as well at the bottom in pencil. Page size: 16 x 16 inches; 6 images plus colophon. Housed in orange silk custom-made clamshell box with inset of blueprint image by the artist of broken glasses printed in white on blue fabric, box made by Priscilla Spitler at Hands on Bookbinding, new. The colophon was printed by Daniel Keleher at Wild Carrot Letterpress. Vincent FitzGerald & Company did the collage work. The prints are described by the publisher as follows: 1) blueprint image on cover; 2) "Umbrella" photograph which puts the umbrella structure directly on the paper; 3) "Secrets" A collaged blueprint. These private words are layered, then cut in strips and woven. The back of the strips are water colored red, reflecting slightly. 4) "Grace's Lace" The lace squares are treated with chemicals for a brown print and developed with ultraviolet light. This is mounted on handmade paper which has been water colored pale gray. 5) "Catenary" This is a blueprint collage. The two blueprint hands hold a copper string. The handmade paper is water colored pale green. 6) "Woven Wineglasses" This is a photograph collage. Several direct wineglass images are simply woven into a box form, making this study of water and shadows into an abstraction. 7) "Haphazard" This is a formal blue print configuration of glass rectangles. The haphazard quality comes from the unpredictability of the beautiful breaks in the glass. Susan Weil returns to a medium she used in the late 1940's and early 1950's with her then husband, Robert Rauschenberg, at Black Mountain College, where they had studied with Josef Albers. Carla Schulz-Hoffman notes in her article on Susan Weil in the exhibition catalogue, MIND'S EYE (1989) the origins of this art form. In subsequent visits to Black Mountain, they began experimenting with blueprint paper. Rauschenberg writes, "Sue and I experimented with light- sensitive papers, partly because of their low cost...". Schulz-Hoffman writes, "In 1951 their son Christopher was born, and in that same year 'Life' magazine published a three page article including reproductions of their spectacular 'Blueprints'. Similar to Man Ray's rayographs, the blueprints used blueprint-paper and a sunray lamp to capture life-sized silhouettes." She notes, "For this reason it is not always possible to credit one particular individual with the discovery of innovations which would prove decisive in precipitating the fall of Abstract Expressionism and in shaping the course which the entire New York School would eventually take. Although many of the results of Weil's productive collaborations with Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns cannot be attributed exclusively to one or another of these artists, nevertheless a typically one-sided art historical scholarship tends to ignore Weil or consign her a marginal role...". As well as blueprint images, Weil began to use collage in an especially creative way. Her complete mastery of these techniques can be seen in these images. See an Image.
