        Portaits (Signed Limited Edition with Signed Silver Gelatin Print)

      St. Ann's Press, Los Angeles 2003 - This is a signed deluxe limited edition of "Portraits" published by St. Ann's Press, Los Angeles in 2003 with a limitation of 100 this being number 5. Included with the book is an original matted silver gelatin print of Muhammad Ali that is hand-numbered and signed in the lower margin by Neil Leifer. From the publisher: "From the man who captured Charles Manson, Paul Newman, George Lucas, the British royal family, Sean Connery, Alec Baldwin, Ed Koch, Pope John Paul II, Frank Sinatra, Sylvester Stallone, Willie Nelson, Muhammad Ali, Billy Crystal, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Fidel Castro, Jimmy Carter and John F. Kennedy. Neil Leifer has shot more covers for Sports Illustrated, Time and People-over 200-than any other photographer. One of the world's greatest sports photographers, he has photographed 15 Olympic Games, 4 soccer World Cups, 15 Kentucky Derbies, countless World Series games, the first 10 Super Bowls and every important heavyweight title fight since Floyd Patterson beat Ingemar Johansson to regain the title in 1960. But Neil Leifer has also shot some of the most exceptional portraits of celebrities and sport stars ever, from presidents to Hollywood actors to Olympic champions. Leifer became a professional photographer while still in his teens. Using the skills he'd learned in the mid-50s on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, at the Henry Street Settlement's photo workshop, he quickly moved from being picture editor at his high-school paper to working as a freelancer for major national magazines, eventually working for nearly all of them, including The Saturday Evening Post, Look, Life, Newsweek, Time, and most often, Sports Illustrated. During various parts of his career, Leifer has been a staff photographer at Sports Illustrated and Time, and a contributing photographer at Life. He now devotes most of his time to producing and directing films. This is his 10th book and the first to be devoted to a wide range of his portraits." Measuring approximately 12.875 x 11.125 inches and containing 60 plates printed on heavy stock fine paper, the book is bound in black colored cloth covered boards. The book has been boldly signed and numbered (5 of 100) by Neil Leifer on the title page. The original matted silver gelatin print is 10 x 8 inches. The print is hand numbered and signed in pencil in the lower margin by Neil Leifer. The print is housed in a separate cloth portfolio in a beveled window overmat for presentation. Both the book and matted photograph are housed in a larger black cloth slipcase. The book, print, and slipcase are in AS NEW condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Fragments of Parmenides & an English Translation by Robert Bringhurst. Wood engravings by Richard Wagener

      Berkeley: Editions Koch, 2003 One of 120 copies, signed by Koch, Bringhurst, and Wagener, out of a total edition of 146 copies. Quarter red morocco over decorative boards. . Folio. Frontispiece and four full-page colored wood-engravings. Greek and English text on facing pages in Parmenides Greek and Monotype Dante. Lettering on title-page in Diogenes Greek. Printed by hand on Zerkall paper. As new in Japanese silk slipcase. The first printed text of the fragments of Parmenides was produced by Henri Estienne in Geneva in 1573. There have been many editions since, but it is likely that the most important printed edition of Parmenides since Estienne's is the present one. It has been long awaited by followers of the book arts, and is a stunning production. Two typefaces, Parmenides Greek and Diogenes Greek, were produced especially for this edition. The former was designed and cut by Dan Carr by hand in steel. The latter was designed in digital format by Christopher Stinehour.

        SAM TAYLOR-WOOD: THE PASSION CYCLE

      Vienna, Austria: BAWAG Foundation, 2003. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Vienna, Austria: BAWAG Foundation, 2003. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. Exhibition catalog, presented as an Artist Book. One of the most beautiful erotic art photography books of our time. The first and only edition. Published in a tiny print run as a hardcover original only. There is no ISBN. The book is now rare. A brilliant production by Sam Taylor-Wood and FUEL: Oversize-volume format. Red cloth boards with black titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Sam Taylor-Wood. Afterword by Hripsime Visser. Japanese art-inspired decorative endpapers. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper in Vienna, Austria to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the BAWAG Foundation Vienna from September 19 through November 30, 2003. Presents a suite of color photographs of a couple having sex. The images are presented as postcard-size "souvenirs". Arranged in a non-linear, anti-narrative order, Sam Taylor-Wood makes us view the images randomly rather than sequentially, in keeping with the "collecting" aspect of the project. Now, the one thing about sex, whether routine or extreme, is that it always happens in a narrative-like, beginning/middle/end sequence: Pre-coitus, coitus, post-coitus. And while every photograph is discrete, photography books make narrative possible, that is, a sequence that yields a storyline (as in the work of Robert Frank or Nan Goldin). Artist/photographer/film-maker Sam Taylor-Wood&#39;s approach in "The Passion Cycle" is about photography&#39;s fundamentally opposite possibility: The photograph as a sensory experience, as a performance, and as a cycle that comes full circle (rather than a story that has a beginning, middle, and end). After all, most people still look at photographs randomly, going from this image and that. "Inspired by shunga, which depict sexuality in a frank and unvarnished manner, the small format of the images refers to the voyeuristic relation that the collector has with shunga prints, comparable to that of the late 19th-century European collector of erotic photographs" (Hripsime Visser). The point of collecting is the same as looking at photographs: One does it in no particular order. Sam Taylor-Wood explores her fascination with sex further, this time for a huge global audience: She will direct the film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" (2014), for which she has hand-picked Jamie Dornan, an impeccable choice, in his breakthrough role as the eponymous hero. An absolute "must-have" title for Sam Taylor-Wood collectors. <b><i>This title is an erotic photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Exhibition Catalog/Artist Book available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. </b></i> 25 color plates. One of the most brilliant living artist/photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SAM TAYLOR-WOOD TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). .

        The Essential John Nash

      Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2003. First edition of this volume that brings together Nash&#39;s most well-known papers. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by John Nash on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. When John Nash was awarded the Nobel prize in economics in 1994, many people were surprised to learn that he was alive and well. Since then, Sylvia Nasar&#39;s celebrated biography A Beautiful Mind, has revealed the man. The Essential John Nash reveals his work--in his own words. This book presents, for the first time, the full range of Nash&#39;s diverse contributions not only to game theory, for which he received the Nobel, but to pure mathematics--from Riemannian geometry and partial differential equations--in which he commands even greater acclaim among academics. Included are nine of Nash&#39;s most influential papers, most of them written over the decade beginning in 1949. "Why are we so intrigued by the story of John Nash? We are curious to understand a person who proves theorems we are unable to fathom. We imagine the voices from another world he has heard. We ask where he was for 30 years during which he walked among us but wasn&#39;t here. We are frightened and we are attracted by this combination of &#39;crazy&#39; and &#39;genius&#39;, an invitation for visiting the edge of our own minds." (Ariel Rubinstein)

        East Broadway Breakdown

      Berlin: Holzwarth Publications, 2003. Fine in white wrappers, black dust jacket, card enclosure.. Deluxe Edition. Quarto in special box. Number 101 of 160 copies issued with an original black and white photograph, 4 X 6 inches, SIGNED, stamped, and dated. The book itself is neither signed nor numbered, but bears the publisher&#39;s "special edition" stamp, and is housed in a drop back cardboard box created for this edition, as issued. Each photograph in the deluxe edition corresponds to a different page in the book, so no copy is the same. Furthermore, the original photographic portfolio of East Broadway Breakdown was executed in an edition of only four copies, so these books likely provide the only opportunity to acquire an original Christopher Wool photograph. East Broadway Breakdown is Wool&#39;s mid-90s paean to the Lower East Side, and certainly ranks as one of the greatest New York photobooks of all-time, despite its relative obscurity. That Wool&#39;s photography has been almost completely overshadowed by his painting only adds to the the mystique of these relentlessly romantic images, hidden behind the bleak and grainy nightscape of a still rundown New York. No American photographer better exemplifies the greatness of the Japanese ideal than Christopher Wool; it has gone largely unnoticed that Wool is the natural heir to the Provoke school - the American Moriyama.

This magazine with images from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Georgia and Armenia brings in exemplary images the hidden traces in those places where geopolitics is at work in search of power and oil. "Liebchen has attempted to conjure up a metaphor for what is happening in the area, seeking to make visible the invisible by photographing the invisible. He has decided to make use of one of photography's abiding traits, its transfigurative power, whereby the close forensic scrutiny of an ordinary object can yield a multiplicity of interpretive clues for sifting by the cultural archaeologist or the open minded, perceptive viewer." Gerry Badger. Presented in a sealed plastic wrapper with a fold out poster of one of Liebchen's images.

In 1843 he published The Grandeur of the Law and then went on to write The Judges over a sixteen year period. "A" rated in the American Association of Law Schools, Law Books Recommended for Librarians.
