        Futuria Fantasia

      Graham, 2007 Lettered limited first hardcover edition. Fine book and jacket housed in Fine, black cloth-covered clamshell box. The lettered version is bound in quarter leather with illustrated cloth-covered boards. It is signed on the limitation page by both Bradbury and Forrest J. Ackerman. This is copy "F" of 52 lettered copies. Laid-in is a photograph of Craig Graham with Bradbury, who is holding a copy of the book. This volume contains Bradbury's first works that were printed in the first volume, four issues, of "Futuria Fantasia" a slim, pseudo-magazine that Bradbury, working with Forrest J. Ackerman and collaborating with artist Hannes Bok (1914 - 1964), edited and published himself. A hundred copies, at 10 cents, of each issue were produced during 1939 and 1940. These are reproduced in exact facsimile here, in the original green ink, with many illustrations by Bok. The issues of "Futuria Fantasia" contained many contributions by Ackerman and Bradbury using various pseudonyms. Other contributors included: Robert Heinlein (using the pseudonym Lyle Monroe), Damon Knight, Henry Kuttner, and Bruce Yerke. The book consists of a preface by Bradbury, an interview of Bradbury by Craig Graham., and then the issues of the magazine. Thanks to Graham for saving them from being lost forever! A very interesting glimpse into the past and Bradbury's formative years after High School; too poor to attend college, he hung around the Clifton's Cafeteria Science Fiction Club, thank heavens. Signed on the limitation page by Bradbury and Ackerman. A note from the publisher on the final page explains some details of the production and is signed by Craig Graham and Michael Graham.. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine.

"Renowned for producing powerful pictures that capture the strong sense of displacement and isolation felt by many young Americans" (on "South East"). "Provides his testimony on contemporary American civilization. Combining portraits and landscapes, he weaves a symbolic and lyrical investigation that subtly questions notions of Progress. He further develops motifs - on the automobile, on the telephone - and catalogues car culture, fast food, convenience stores, and suburban sprawl" (on "Greater Atlanta"). An absolute "must-have" set for "South" Trilogy and Mark Steinmetz collectors. <b><i> These copies of "South Central", South East", and "Greater Atlanta" are very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Mark Steinmetz.

        Al-Mutanabbi Street

      Boston. 2012. Artist&#39;s book, unique copy with all the original art, 16 leaves, hand- painted and hand-collaged, and hand-lettered in Arabic, which was the setting copy for the edition of the book (10 copies plus 5 reserved for the artists), which is also included, signed by both artists. The 16 original collages are 6-3/4 x 4-/34 inches. The printed edition of the book is 6-7/8 x 5 inches with two small accordion books inserted into pockets on both the front and back cover. Both are housed in custom-made tan cloth over boards clamshell box with tray case for original art. The two small accordion books have no particular order. The artists have written, "This leporello book is a circular narrative of destruction and rebirth, entered by either cover." The text goes on to describe their collaboration, "To produce the originals used for this edition we each used research to arrive at a single image, to which the other responded visually. Each original image was viewed as a vignette, with no thought of sequence. We soon recognized narrative threads, both before and after the bombing."& The original paper collage images, included here with the edition book, were scanned, reordered, and printed in folios on white Rising Stonehenge 24-5gsm using an Epson Stylus Pro 3800 printer and 8- Ultra Chrome K3 ink. Folios were glued to produce a double-sided accordion of 14 pages. Covers are handmade paper with sand on boards. Each of the small accordion books is printed in 10 point Papyrus on Ingres paper. Afraa Gutub, Muhammad Zuhair Gutub and Hatim Sharief provided Arabic translations and calligraphy for the list of some of the dead provided Beau Beausoleil by refugee Moussa Al-Naseri.& This is one of the books contributed to the Al-Mutanabbi Street Project by Artist&#39;s Books from Book Arts at the Centre for Fine Print Research, UK in response to the 2007 car bomb that destroyed much of Al-Mutanabbi Street in the old section of Baghdad, home to book vendors, binderies, printers, and cafes. It was a place for intellectuals to gather as well as those who loved the printed word. Certainly not the first attack on books and ideas, it is only one of the most recent. This project is a lament for those killed as well as a "commemoration of the singular power of words." <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10613.jpg >Image.</A><br>

Deluxe Leatherbound And Slipcased Edition of 100 numbered and signed copies. Except for the Australian, the Deluxe Edition precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions.

Text by J. M. Coetzee. Marbled endpapers. Maroon cloth slipcase. Printed on archival stock paper in the United Kingdom to absolutely the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. "Addresses the profound unease of countless people in modern democracies. An eminent, seventy-two-year-old Australian writer is invited to contribute to a book entitled &#39;Strong Opinions&#39;. It is a chance to air some urgent concerns. He writes short essays on the origins of the state, on Machiavelli, on anarchism, on Al-Qaida, on Intelligent Design, on music. What, he asks, is the origin of the state and the nature of the relationship between citizen and state? How should the citizen of a modern democracy react to the state&#39;s willingness to set aside moral considerations and civil liberties in its War on Terror? How does the state handle outsiders? In the laundry-room of his apartment block, he encounters an alluring young woman. When he discovers she is between jobs, he claims failing eyesight and offers her work typing up his manuscript. Anya has no interest in politics, but the job provides a distraction, as does the writer&#39;s evident and not unwelcome attraction toward her. An utterly contemporary work of fiction from one of our greatest writers and deepest thinkers" (Publisher&#39;s blurb). Unlike most contemporary writers, J. M. Coetzee has been an "engaged" writer from the beginning, during his anti-Apartheid days in South Africa. He has also always offered the greatest aesthetic pleasure, in prose of the highest literary quality and in his profoundly speculative, anti-didactic, anti-dogmatic, and anti-propagandistic reflections on the major issues of our time. The novel&#39;s title is an allusion to Coetzee&#39;s idol, Daniel Defoe ("Journal of The Plague Year") while being at the same time, a novel of ideas in the grand tradition of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, and Kafka. A "must-have" edition for J. M. Coetzee completists. <b><i> This copy is Number 49, indicated as such on the Front Limitation Page, and is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black ink-pen by J. M. Coetzee. This title sold out upon publication and is now highly collectible. This is one of few signed copies of the Deluxe Leatherbound and Slipcased Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Winner of the Lannan Award in 1998, the Jerusalem Prize in 1999, the Booker Prize in 1983 for "The Life & Times of Michael K" and in 1999 for "Disgrace", the first writer to win the most prestigious British literary award twice. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2003. One of the greatest living writers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER J. M. COETZEE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1846551668.

        43 According to Robin Price, with Annotated Bibliography

      Middletown, CT: Robin Price, Publisher, 2007. Hard Cover. Fine. Hard Cover. Number 49 of 86 copies. Robin Price has designed, printed, and published books for over twenty-five years. Her works can be found in university and public library collections throughout North America and Europe. This book is particularly personal, as well as complex and mysterious. Ms. Price says that "Text excerpts from 86 books significant to me-mostly other artist&#39;s books-were gathered using formulas based on the number 43, which was my age at the genesis of the project." In her announcement for this book, she says that simple formulas, using modular arithmetic with the number 43, were applied to categories such as page number, paragraph, sentence, line of poetry, etc. The text is grouped by subject matter into sixteen page spreads. Titles of spreads include "Water," "Counting," and "Flora." Paper maps from locations along the 43rd parallels are bound in an accordion that structurally supports the main text, which is printed on graph paper and also hinged together as an accordion. A Legend Card and supplemental Annotated Bibliography are included. The unusual double-layer accordion is housed in an olive-green cloth-covered clamshell box with a river section printed in blue, and a map-paper spine label. The book was co-designed and co-produced with Daniel E. Kelm at the Wide Awake Garage. The typefaces are hand-set ATF Garamond and Kabel. Six colors are printed letterpress. All additional printing within the structure is also letterpress, except for the laser-printed text sheets of the 32 pp bibliography. 11.75 x 8 x 1.5 inches, opens to 20 ft wide; 32 pages with supplemental 32 pp booklet.

        JULIUS SHULMAN: MODERNISM REDISCOVERED - SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER

      (SHULMAN, JULIUS). Shulman, Julius, Hunter Drohojowska-Philp, Owen Edwards, Philip J. Ethington & Peter Loughrey. JULIUS SHULMAN: MODERNISM REDISCOVERED - SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER. Signed by the Photographer. Koln, GERMANY: Benedikt Taschen Verlag, 2007. First Edition. Small Folio. Cloth in Slipcase. Photography Monograph. Fine/No Jackets - As Issued. 1008pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English, German and French. "Julius Shulman&#39;s photography was instrumental in crafting the image of the midcentury Southern California lifestyle across the United States and around the world. His work keenly identifies the distinctive structural, functional, and design elements of a building, in the context of both its natural surroundings and the people who occupy the spaces. This sensitivity, combined with his intuitive and brilliant sense of composition and timing, has earned him the reputation as a master of the genre. This extensive, three-volume set presents over four hundred architectural gems into the spotlight. Not just restricted to the West Coast, the images were taken all across the United States as well as in Mexico, Israel, and Hong Kong. Each project and photograph in these volumes was personally selected from over 260,000 photographs over a two-year period by publisher Benedikt Taschen". Featured architects and designers include William Beckett, Craig Ellwood, Albert Frey, Frank Gehry, Bruce Goff, Herb Greene, Philip Johnson, Louis I. Kahn, Raymond Kappe, Pierre Koenig, John Lautner, Paul Laszlo, Le Corbusier, Charles Luckman, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Oscar Niemeyer, Richard J. Neutra, William L. Pereira, R.M. Schindler, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Raphael Soriano, Welton Becket Associates, Frank Lloyd Wright, and many more. A pristine slipcased set SIGNED by Julius Shulman in ink on the title page of the first volume, still in the publisher&#39;s printed shipping box and shrinkwrap that has been discreetly opened for the photographer&#39;s signature.

        Die Gesetze der Angelsachsen. 4 Vols. in 3 books. Complete set

      2007. Liebermann, Felix. Die Gesetze der Angelsachsen. Halle a. S., M. Niemeyer, 1898-1912. 4 Vols. in 3 books. lxii, 675; viii, 758; [6], 356 pp. ISBN-13: 9781584778363. ISBN-10: 1584778369. Reprinted 2007 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. Cloth. New. * Text in Anglo-Saxon, Latin and German. "Liebermann&#39;s edition has superseded all others; and has gone a long way towards providing us with a complete text of the materials for the history of English law both before the Conquest, and also of that confused period which lies between the Conquest and the reign of Henry II. (.)For this edition Liebermann examined about one hundred and eighty manuscripts in more than forty libraries in England and on the continent. He does not content himself with giving us a single text. He gives us in parallel columns the texts of all the leading manuscripts of the Anglo-Saxon laws, in the notes are divergent readings, and, on the opposite page, are passages from the post-Conquest literature based on these laws. As Maitland says, the book looks like the full score of an opera.&#39; And, in addition to the texts, Liebermann has given us an account of the former editions, a dictionary of Anglo-Saxon and Latin words, a subject glossary, introductions to, and a commentary on, the laws. The book is thus far more than a text of the Anglo-Saxon laws and Anglo-Norman law books. The texts are explained; and, in the glossary, the material is not only collected under appropriate headings, it is systematically arranged in the form of concise essays, which contain many relevant references to other Germanic bodies of law, and to other Anglo-Norman sources. It is, as Professor Hazeltine has said, one of the finest products of the new historical school of the nineteenth century.": Holdsworth, The Historians of Anglo-American Law 127-128.

As New./As New.. 306pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. "As one of the 21st Century&#39;s most traveled, acclaimed, and influential fashion photographers, Mario Testino has unsurpassed access to the most magnetic stars of popular culture. For some time now he has been collecting a personal archive of off-screen moments, often snatched spontaneously before, during, and after more official sittings for "Vanity Fair", "Vogue", and Testino&#39;s many clients in the world of fashion. The result is a portrait not just of a generation of the most wanted and talked-about, but an invitation to be part of the backstage parties and unstaged moments of Testino&#39;s life. Sometimes offbeat, but always on the pulse, "Let Me In!", with Testino&#39;s eye for a modern kind of elegance liberated from conventional polish, is a new chapter from the photographer who has already made his mark with the books "Any Objections", "Front Row Backstage", "Alive", "Portraits", "Kids", "Diana Princess of Wales", and numerous exhibitions and publications worldwide". Limited to one thousand copies only, this massive tome is one of the most lavish glances behind the veil of celebrity yet published. An unused copy of this already out of print essential SIGNED AND NUMBERED by Mario Testino still shrinkwrapped in the publisher&#39;s Plexiglas slipcase and printed shipping carton, as issued.

        ARCHAEOLOGY IN REVERSE

      London, England: Nobody/Archive Of Modern Conflict, 2007. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. London, England: Nobody/Archive Of Modern Conflict, 2007. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. Artist Book. Now considered a contemporary photography classic. Limited Clamshell Edition of 100 numbered and signed copies. Should not be confused with the Limited Edition of 3000 copies. The edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Stephen Gill and Melanie Mues: Regular-sized volume format. Mustard cloth boards with orange design on the cover and orange titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Stephen Gill. Text by Iain Sinclair. Brown cloth clamshell box. 7.5 X 8.5 inch color print encased in its own sleeve and laid-in. Printed on thick coated stock paper by EBS in Verona, Italy to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents one of three conceptually inventive photography books published simultaneously by Stephen Gill (the other two are "Hackney Flowers" and "Anonymous Origami"). "Stephen Gill has learned this: To haunt the places that haunt him. His photo-accumulations demonstrate a tender vision factored out of experience. Alert, watchful, not over-eager, wary of that mendacious conceit, &#39;closure&#39;. There is always flow, momentum, the sense of a man passing through a place that delights him. A sense of stepping down, immediate engagement, politic exchange. What I like about Stephen Gill is that he has learned to give us only as much as we need, the bones of the bones of the bones" (Iain Sinclair). Firmly grounded in the great British documentary tradition, Stephen Gill&#39;s photographs are honest, telling, and brilliant. His conceptual rigor and intelligence, unsentimental empathy for his subjects, and delicate use of color are astonishingly assured (that is, devoid of artistic vanity and self-indulgence) for a photographer who just started taking photographs (in his early 20&#39;s) and already has several published collections and one masterpiece (in his early 30&#39;s). The "object-in-relation-to-place" motif runs throughout Stephen Gill&#39;s oeuvre, and in this book, is especially moving. A "must-have" title for Stephen Gill collectors. <b><i> This copy is one of the Limited Clamshell Box Edition, indicated as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in pencil by Stephen Gill. It is also signed in pencil by Iain Sinclair. It comes with a 7.5 X 8.5 inch color print, also very prominently and beautifully signed and dated (in the year of publication) in pencil on verso by the photographer: "Stephen Gill 2007". This edition is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Clamshell Box Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 104 plates. Stephen Gill&#39;s "Hackney Wick" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the most brilliant living photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER STEPHEN GILL TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0954940563.

        Suppose One Were A Fish

      [Seattle]: Incunabla. 2007. A broadside excerpt from Crowley&#39;s Little, Big, issued in conjunction with what was to be the 25th anniversary edition of Crowley&#39;s World Fantasy Award-winning novel, which is still a work-in-progress but has yet to be published. A 24" x 37" poster, with art by Peter Milton, whose haunting drawings, etchings, engravings and prints were to grace the new edition. When Little, Big was first published, Ursula LeGuin famously wrote that "all by itself it calls for a redefinition of fantasy"; Thomas Disch called it "the greatest fantasy novel ever." The literary critic Harold Bloom listed three books by John Crowley, including Little, Big, in his book The Western Canon. Bloom is listed as providing an Introduction to the anniversary edition of the novel. One can get a sense, from this poster, of the aesthetic of the anniversary volume, as one can from various parts of the above website. The lettered limited edition of the poster, one of 26 lettered copies, this being letter "L," signed by John Crowley, artist Peter Milton, editor John Drummond and book designer John D. Berry. Rolled; else fine. A scarce artifact of a publishing project that is still underway, associated with one of the best-loved and most highly regarded fantasy novels of all time. . First Edition.

        Ani-San, Samukaro? Omae Samukaro

      New York: Zucker Art Books, 2007/2008. Fine. Number 8 of 19 copies, of which only 15 were offered for sale. The text is an excerpt taken from "Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan" by Lafcadio Hearn (1894). The book retells the poignant story of a brother and sister who, unable to pay rent after the death of their parents, are thrown out of their house by the landlord in the middle of winter without even a blanket. Wrapped in their only remaining belongings, blue kimonos, they huddle together behind their house and are buried by snow. The spirits of the children haunt the blanket that their landlord stole from them before turning them out of their home. Anyone sleeping under the blanket can still hear the children&#39;;s voices calling to each other: "Ani-San, Samukaro?" (Elder Brother, are you cold?) "Omae Samukaro" (No, are you cold?). This exquisite book is hand bound using traditional Japanese techniques and is printed on white gampi paper. Nineteen photomicrographs of snow crystals taken by the artists during several snowstorms illustrate the story. The verso of each image is painted with white acrylic and the front is hand-coated with a stroke of varnish. Material from an antique blue patterned kimono wraps around the book and fastens together with a red and white ribbon. Each ribbon end has a small paper flag printed with the questions that form the title. Appropriately, the lining of the kimono is thread bare with several thin tears. A unique snowflake photograph which is printed on gampi paper, coated in encaustic, and signed by both artists accompanies the book. Each book in this edition features a different photograph. A colophon printed on a single sheet of paper and signed by both artists rests beneath the kimono. The book [40 pages], kimono, colophon, and print are housed in a hand crafted bass wood Japanese box which measures 11.75 x 11.75 inches. The widely acclaimed artists who created this masterpiece, Doug and Mike Starn, are identical twins born in New Jersey in 1961. They began collaboratively experimenting with photography at age thirteen and have since expanded into sculpture, installation, video, and painting. The main themes explored in their work involve the relationships between light and dark, past and present, and technology and nature. Images of snowflakes, decaying foliage, ancient statues, Old Master paintings, and nocturnal insects haunt many of their pieces. They are represented in museums around the world including the Metropolitan Musuem of Art (New York), the Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington, D.C.), the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne, Australia), the National Museum of Contemporary Art (South Korea), and many more. They have received two National Endowment for the Arts grants (1987 & 1995), the Infinity Award for Fine Art Photography from the International Center for Photography (1992), and many other awards. Their varying interests have led them to collaborate artistically with Russian author Victor Pelevin, American actor Dennis Hopper, NASA scientists and others. Recently they have been commissioned to create a permanent art installation for the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority which is scheduled to open in 2008. ARTB/052108m.

Fine/No Jackets - As Issued. 1008pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English, German and French. "Julius Shulman&#39;s photography was instrumental in crafting the image of the midcentury Southern California lifestyle across the United States and around the world. His work keenly identifies the distinctive structural, functional, and design elements of a building, in the context of both its natural surroundings and the people who occupy the spaces. This sensitivity, combined with his intuitive and brilliant sense of composition and timing, has earned him the reputation as a master of the genre. This extensive, three-volume set presents over four hundred architectural gems into the spotlight. Not just restricted to the West Coast, the images were taken all across the United States as well as in Mexico, Israel, and Hong Kong. Each project and photograph in these volumes was personally selected from over 260,000 photographs over a two-year period by publisher Benedikt Taschen". Featured architects and designers include William Beckett, Craig Ellwood, Albert Frey, Frank Gehry, Bruce Goff, Herb Greene, Philip Johnson, Louis I. Kahn, Raymond Kappe, Pierre Koenig, John Lautner, Paul Laszlo, Le Corbusier, Charles Luckman, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Oscar Niemeyer, Richard J. Neutra, William L. Pereira, R.M. Schindler, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Raphael Soriano, Welton Becket Associates, Frank Lloyd Wright, and many more. A pristine slipcased set SIGNED by Julius Shulman in ink on the title page of the first volume, still in the publisher&#39;s printed shipping box and shrinkwrap that has been discreetly opened for the photographer&#39;s signature.
