        New York Revisited.

      New York: The Grolier Club, 2002. 11 colour wood engravings by Gaylord Schanilec. One of 200 copies signed by the artist and author, there were also 50 specials with a portfolio of wood engravings by Ruzicka printed for the club in 1915. Printed in 12 point Monotype Emerson.

As new apart from one small mark to the back of the slipcase. Slight water mark in top left hand corner of upper cover. A great tribute to New York and New Yorkers. The book was intended as a modern day reply to a Grolier Club book on New York printed in 1915 with colour woodengravings by Rudolph Ruzicka, however, it took on a new importance as its publication coincided with the attack on New York in September 2001. A truly beautiful book printed by Gaylord Schanilec at his press in Wisconsin, Midnight Paper Sales.

        Origins of Cyberspace.

      Novato: historyofscience.com, 2002. This book, published in an edition of 500 copies, describes a library of technical reports, books, pamphlets, ephemera, letters, typescripts, manuscripts, prints, photographs, blueprints, and medals on the history of computing, networking, and related aspects of telecommunications. The material it describes ranges chronologically from 1613 to about 1970. There are 1411 annotated entries. Few of the bibliographies of scientific and technological classics consulted by twentieth-century science collectors included any representation of computing. Harrison Horblit's One Hundred Books Famous in Science and Printing and the Mind of Man cited only the seventeenth century invention of logarithms by John Napier relative to the history of computing. Bern Dibner's Heralds of Science also cited that and Napier's Rabdologiae. En Francais dans le texte ignored the topic of computing entirely. Hook and Norman's catalogue of The Haskell F. Norman Library of Science and Medicine also included the writings of Napier and a few works by Charles Babbage. Haskell Norman's One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine cited one computer-related reference. Morton's Medical Bibliography, fifth edition, edited by Jeremy Norman, included a handful of references to computing in medicine. Dibner, Printing and the Mind of Man, and Hook and Norman also contained a few references to the telegraph and the telephone. One reason why the traditional reference works for collectors of the history of science ignored computing is that most of these were written around the middle of the twentieth century before computing was pervasive. Dibner first published Heralds of Science in 1955. Horblit based his book on an exhibition at the Grolier Club held in 1958. The Printing and the Mind of Man exhibition was held in 1963. Though we published the catalogue of the Haskell F. Norman library in 1991, Dr. Norman began forming his library around 1955. In book selection he was profoundly influenced by the works just mentioned, and also by William Osler's Bibliotheca Osleriana, posthumously published in 1929, but describing a library formed before Osler's death in 1919. Another work equally influential on Dr. Norman was the catalogue of the library of Harvey Cushing. Virtually the only books relevant to computing in the Osler and Cushing libraries were also the writings of John Napier. Collecting new subjects such as computing, networking and telecommunications involved collecting types of documents that had not typically been included in private libraries of rare science books. To describe a library that broke new paths, combining manuscripts, typescripts, and photographs with printed and duplicated material produced by a wide variety of methods, from traditional letterpress to mimeograph, blueprint, ditto, and photocopying, we found it necessary to employ a variety of bibliographical and organizational techniques that had not typically been combined in this way. These techniques included traditional descriptive bibliography, bio-bibliography, and what might be called descriptive or annotation techniques found in some catalogues of museum or rare book library exhibitions. Throughout the diversity of Origins of Cyberspace we created an elaborate system of cross-references that was only possible in a work of this complexity because the software maintained the integrity of the cross-references throughout the editorial process. When we wrote this book the convergence of electronic media and computing technologies through the Internet had begun so recently that there had been no previous bibliographic effort to document this development for rare book collectors. Nor had there been documented efforts to collect the history of these subjects before the Internet was established. The only significant bibliographies of private collections of rare books concerning aspects of computing or telecommunications were the catalogues of the libraries of Sir Francis Ronalds and Latimer Clark, which were formed before the end of the nineteenth century. Both of these libraries collected the history of electricity, magnetism, and telegraphy. Yet convergence of electronic media through the Internet drew our attention to historical relationships between electronic media. One of the most basic was that telegraph networks were the first data networks for the communication of information. The Morse code may be viewed as the first widely used data code. Around the time that the world began to be fully wired for telegraphy, Hertz in 1887 theorized the possibility of wireless transmission. In 1895, having read Hertz's work, Marconi invented wireless telegraphy, later called radio. Initially what was transmitted over radio was telegraph code. The merging of wireless transmission and information processing was made about one hundred years after the invention of wireless telegraphy, when the Internet enabled computers to evolve into personal communication devices. For this to occur a complex series of technological advances had to take place, only the most basic of these could be briefly summarized here. The telephone, an analog device, had to be invented (1878), and telephone network technology had to evolve. The electronic digital computer had to be invented (1943-45), and computing technology had to develop for about fifty years. Data networks using telephone lines had to advance in parallel with computing, leading to the formation of of the first national network of mainframes, ARPANET, in 1969. This would eventually lead to development of the Internet in the 1980s. From their beginning in 1977, cellular telephone networks had to be developed. About fifty years after the invention of electronic digital computing, wireless handheld information processors with Internet connections had to be invented. Digital telephone networks had to be built in addition to traditional analog telephone networks, enabling the invention of wireless digital telephones with web browsers. Through these, and many other necessary complex technical developments, such as increases in bandwidth and satellite communications, and a multitude of advances in software, overall features of the wired and wireless Internet could be traced back through the history of computing and telephone to telegraphy. It was a coincidence, and a remarkable demonstration of the extent to which these major fields had been ignored by collectors and descriptive bibliographers, that approximately one hundred years before this bibliography was written, the history of telegraphy had been the subject of the only two bibliographies of major private libraries that contained more than a few items relevant to the Origins of Cyberspace. It was also amazing, but most probably true, that prior to Origins of Cyberspace the only published catalogue of a private library that focused on subjects directly concerning the history of computing, rather than the history of mathematics, except for the auction catalogue of the Weinreb sale in 1999, was the auction catalogue of the library of Charles Babbage published in 1872. Includes annotated timeline of significant events from 1599 to 1990 that is cross-referenced to the book. Also includes several essays. Indexed. 670 pages. 284 illustrations. 8-1/2 x 11 inches. Printed in two colors throughout. Cloth, acid-free paper. Limited to 500 copies. See the full online prospectus on our website.

      Los Angeles, CA: Gagosian Gallery, 2002. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Signed by Author(s). First edition; buff paper over boards; unpaginated; glossy black and white and color photographs; tissue paper has been placed between the pages after the fact to protect the images; three page essay by Katherine Dunn. Bottom corner bumped with a small red mark. Else Fine. Published in conjunction with the photographic series of the same name at the Gagosian Gallery, 1995-1996. This was a collaboration between painter Jenny Saville and fashion photographer/filmmaker Glen Luchford to confront and challenge conceived notions of feminine beauty. After having observed the operations of reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, Saville was eager to express the violence and anesthetized pain of this experience in her own work. Luchford and Saville began an artistic collaboration that captures the full range of color, tonality and topography of live flesh, in large photographic tableaux. Distortions confront and coerce the viewer into an examination of one's own body and the grotesqueries and beauties inherent within. The images also recall biological specimens preserved, disembodied and disfigured. "The images offer, not a story, but an experience that begins in visceral uneasiness and gradually shifts to a haunted serenity. The discomfort is complicated. It is triggered partly by our sense of the instantaneous monstrosity of a normal human transformed by the spreading of the shape beyond what we understood as normal." - Katherine Dunn, from the exhibition catalogue This was Katherine Dunn's personal copy of the book. She received it as part of her payment for writing the included essay.

        Africa. Deutsch, Englisch, Französisch.

      Köln, Taschen Verlag, 2002. Limited Edition von 2.500 nummerierten Exemplaren. 564 Seiten XXL-Format: 34,5 x 50 cm, gebunden in Kassette das Buch verlagsfrisch und noch verlagsverpackt, eines von weltweit auf 2500 limitierten Exemplaren von Leni Riefenstahl eigenhändig signiert, hier die Nummer 559. Helene Bertha Amalie „Leni“ Riefenstahl (* 22. August 1902 in Berlin - + 8. September 2003 in Pöcking) war eine deutsche Filmregisseurin, -produzentin und -schauspielerin sowie Drehbuchautorin, Schnittmeisterin, Fotografin und Tänzerin. Sie gilt als eine der umstrittensten Persönlichkeiten der Filmgeschichte – einerseits für ihre Werke von vielen Filmschaffenden und -kritikern als „innovative Filmemacherin und kreative Ästhetin“ verehrt und geachtet, andererseits wegen ihrer Beteiligung an der Propaganda für die Diktatur des Nationalsozialismus kritisiert und moralisch verurteilt. Ab den 1960ern betätigte sich Riefenstahl als Fotografin und veröffentlichte mehrere Bildbände. Zu ihren bekanntesten Werken dieser Zeit zählen Fotoreportagen über das Volk der Nuba im Sudan. Das bemerkenswerte Afrika-Œuvre von Leni Riefenstahl. Kevin Brownlow in der Einleitung: \"Und wenn Leni Riefenstahls Arbeit sich nur darauf beschränkt hätte, nach Afrika zu reisen und mit ihren Fotografien zurückzukommen, allein dafür wäre ihr ein Platz in der Geschichte gewiss.” Dieser Band, der 2002 anlässlich von Riefenstahls 100. Geburtstag erschien, ist dem bemerkenswerten Afrika-Oeuvre der Fotografin gewidmet. Leni Riefenstahl, die erste international anerkannte weibliche Regisseurin, begann mit Anfang 60 ihre regelmäßigen Reisen auf den afrikanischen Kontinent, wo sie an zahlreichen Film- und Fotografieprojekten arbeitete. Ihr Lieblingsziel war der Sudan. Dort lebte sie mit dem Stamm der Nuba, lernte ihre Sprache, freundete sich mit ihnen an und fotografierte sie. Die Nuba waren ein freundliches, friedliches Volk und boten Riefenstahl eine gewisse Zuflucht vor ihrer Vergangenheit als Protegé der Nationalsozialisten. Später sollte sie ihre Erlebnisse in Afrika als die glücklichsten Momente ihres Lebens bezeichnen. Dieses monumentale Buch versammelt ihre Bilder der Nuba, Dinka, Shilluk und Massai. Die bewegenden Fotografien fangen nicht nur die Schönheit, Ausdruckskraft und uralten Bräuche dieser Stämme ein, sondern zeigen auch den tiefen Respekt und die Liebe, die Riefenstahl den Menschen und ihrem Land entgegenbrachte. Alle Farbbilder sind farbsepariert mit Aniva-Technik gedruckt, dem derzeit hochwertigsten Druckverfahren mit hoher Farbsättigung und großem Farbraum. Die Schwarzweißbilder werden im Novaton-Verfahren gedruckt, das ebenfalls eine hervorragende Reproduktionsqualität mit großem Farbraum und hoher Dichte gewährleistet.

Nobuyoshi Araki (* 25. Mai 1940 in Minowa/Japan) ist einer der bedeutendsten Fotografen Japans. Bekanntheit erlangte der Künstler vor allem im Genre der Aktfotografie. Araki: \"Dieses Buch enthält alles über mich. Es ist ein 60-Jahres-Vertrag gewesen. Fotografie ist Liebe und Tod – das wird auf meinem Grabstein stehen.“ Der japanische Fotograf Araki erzählt anhand von Fotos vom Leben. Sein aussagekräftiges Werk – der Ertrag mehrerer Jahrzehnte in Bildern – ist auf 636 Seiten voller Fotografien zusammengefasst worden, die die Geschichte Arakis erzählen und die endgültige Retrospektivsammlung seines Werks darstellen. Araki, am besten bekannt für seine intimen, schnappschussartigen Bilder von Frauen, die häufig mit Stricken gefesselt sind (kinbaku, die japanische Fesselkunst) und von farbenprächtigen, sinnlichen Blumen, ist ein Künstler, der stark auf seine Emotionen setzt und die Fotografie dazu verwendet, sie intensiver zu erfahren. Von Frauen besessen versucht Araki, ihnen durch die Fotografie näherzukommen, indem er die Stricke wie eine Umarmung verwendet und das Klicken des Verschlusses wie einen Kuss. Sein Werk ist zugleich schockierend und auf geheimnisvolle Weise zärtlich. Als zutiefst persönlicher Künstler fürchtet sich Araki nicht vor seinen Gefühlen oder davor, sie der Welt zu zeigen.
