        Nelson & Emma; Aphrodite & Ares contemplate Admiral Nelson & Lady Hamilton

      [San Francisco]: Pacific Editions, 2008. First and Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Hobson, Charles. Number 4 of 35, quarto size, 41 pp., signed by Charles Hobson. Charles Hobson's imagination takes flight into history with the love story of Britain's hero, Lord Nelson, enabling us to ponder the juxtaposition of love and war. "An imaginary conversation between Aphrodite and Ares concerning Nelson's victory at the Nile in 1798, and his later encounter and affair with Emma Hamilton... At the heart of the design of Nelson & Emma is an intention to show alternative perspectives about the events that transpire and to give life to the odd coincidence that love and war are tied closely together in both the affairs of the gods and the affairs of mortals... The text was written by Charles Hobson who also designed the edition. The book is built around five signatures called "intermezzos" attached to a concertina spine. Each intermezzo has a unique abstract acrylic painting on paper; an image of an historic sea battle printed on transparent film; a Renaissance-era painting of Aphrodite colored with acrylic wash; and a page with cutout windows. The book concludes with a pop-up square-rigged vessel containing the images of Admiral Nelson and Aphrodite... The cover of the book contains a lenticular photograph of an age-of-sail battle scene overlaid with a painting of Aphrodite by Titian who looms over the battle. The lenticular photograph shifts the view between the two images as the cover is tilted." (N.B., from the web site of Charles Hobson.) ***DESCRIPTION: Original quarter blue cloth with title stamped in silver at backstrip, upper board is covered in mouldmade Canal paper with inlaid lenticular photograph, lower board is blue cloth, housed in a slipcase covered with the same Canal paper that has been embossed with a pattern of netting, illustrated title-page, monotype frontis-portraits, hand-painted paper, 5 illustrations on transparent film, cut-out pages, and historic depictions of Aphrodite with acrylic wash, and one pop-up, Rives BFK paper, insert notes: "Since the first painted page in each intermezzo has been painted by hand, there may be some paint on the reverse-that is, on the text side. Please consider this a sign that each copy is unique and verifies that the hand of the artist (or at least the brush) touched the page." Quarto 11.25" by 10.25", 41 pp., limited edition, number 4 of 35, signed by Charles Hobson. ***CONDITION: Fine copy, like new, in fine slipcase. ***CITATION: Experiments in Navigation, p. 62. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Rio Abajo/drifting Away: The Deluxe Edition

      Bogota, Colombia: Erika Diettes Studios(2008). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 20 pages. Artist Book. Collection of tipped-in color transparencies. One of the most beautiful and most valuable photography books of our time. Limited Edition of 250 numbered and signed copies. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, of which there are many, mainly exhibition catalogs, all of them sourced from this Artist Book. There is no ISBN. The Limited Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Erika Diettes: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with titles printed on white stock paper that is pasted on the cover, as issued. Photographs by Erika Diettes. Essay by Miguel Gonzalez in both the Spanish original and felicitous English translation. Each original color transparency is hand-tipped into a pristine-white, thick card-stock paper to the highest standards. They must be seen and experienced in all their beauty, power, and sheer innovativeness in their use of the book format. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in its Limited Edition collectible format, Erika Diettes' "Rio Abajo/Drifting Away". A luminous sequence of photographs that Diettes originally produced on transparent 60 X 35.5 inch (5 X 2 feet) life-size glass. How many photographs have you seen printed on glass or transparency (which means that they have no "back" side, the images can be viewed on both sides) ? Not very many, if at all. In a stroke of brilliance, Diettes chose glass and transparency because they both evoke River and Water, Colombia's fluids, evocatively and powerfully, and in a way that the regular photographic print cannot. "The rivers of Colombia are the largest graveyards in the world, favored places to dispose of the victims of the country's civil war. Out of this tragedy, Erika Diettes has created a powerful body of work about loss and memory in her photographs of personal articles once owned by The Disappeared. Her work is in the Permanent Collection of The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, among other major venues, and is exhibited alongside that of Christian Boltanski and Gordon Matta-Clark. Erika Diettes holds a Master's Degree in Anthropology and was recently selected as one of the leading 180 thinkers in Latin America" (Charles Guice). Like Boltanski's work, Diettes' imagery resonates precisely because she uses the most basic elements of a human life, in this case, the articles of clothing that were recovered from the bodies of people murdered in Colombia's unending armed conflict. As such, her work is a radical departure from the more elaborate, ritualistic, even fetishistic photography we generically associate with Latin America (she is, after all, an anthropologist/social thinker as well as an artist/photographer, of the first rank in both instances). An absolute "must-have" title for Erika Diettes collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Edition of 250 numbered and signed copies, blind-stamped and numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page. It is also very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Erika Diettes. Each original color transparency is blind-stamped on recto by the artist/photographer. This title is a great Artist Book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Limited Edition available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: The life-size glass prints have been acquired by museums and private collections for thousands of dollars apiece. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative, on a more intimate scale, of this masterpiece. A rare signed copy thus. 15 original color transparency prints. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ERIKA DIETTES TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

        The China Diary of George H. W. Bush: The Making of a Global President.

      Princeton University Press, Princeton 2008 - First edition of Bush's diary he dictated while de facto U.S. ambassador to the People's Republic of China in 1974-75. Octavo, original half cloth, illustrated. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Signed by former President George H.W. Bush and former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger on the title page. Rare and desirable, signed by Bush and Kissinger. "George Bush's year in China laid the foundations for the pragmatic, prudent, personal foreign policy that would characterize his presidency. With superb annotations and analysis by Jeffrey Engel, a professor of history and public policy at Texas A&M, Bush's daily diary sheds light not only on 'the making of a global president' but on two nations in transition: late Maoist China, as it moved, tentatively, toward engagement with the international community; and the United States, as it absorbed the implications of defeat in Vietnam" (Glenn C. Altschuler Baltimore Sun). "The book is of unique historic, theoretical and practical value. Its ideal readership consists of international studies scholars and students of various disciplinary backgrounds, with particular interest in China studies as well as diplomatic and international business practioners. I highly recommend it" (Wenshan Jia Journal of Chinese Political Science). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

"Here are the most memorable moments since the birth of Pro Football in America. In 1958, sports photographer Neil Leifer took the picture that remains one of his most famous to this day. The day he got the shot of Alan Ameche's game-winning 'Sudden Death' touchdown was Leifer's 16th birthday. This game, called 'The Greatest Ever Played', signalled football's emergence as America's national pastime. Formerly half-empty stadiums welcomed sold-out crowds overnight as football surpassed baseball and basketball in national television ratings. While best-known for the enormous diversity of subjects he covered in and out of the sports world, it is his football pictures Leifer considers his best" (Publisher's blurb). Neil Leifer is regarded as the greatest living American sports and "action" photographer. An absolute "must-have" title for Neil Leifer collectors.

      Erich Schmidt Verlag GmbH & Co, 2008. Mit spektakulären Einzelbauwerken punkten Städte und Regionen im Standortwettbewerb.

Felizitas Romeiß-Stracke und weitere Autoren zeigen in diesem fachübergreifenden Buch, wie architektonisch attraktive Destinationen entstehen: - Tourismus-Manager lernen, ihr Produkt aus architektonischer Sicht einzuschätzen und besser zu gestalten: Welches bauliche Ambiente mögen Touristen und wie entsteht es? - Architekten entdecken neue Geschäftsfelder: Wie lassen sich touristische Attraktionen direkt inszenieren? - Investoren erhalten Know-how, um Projekte noch besser zu beurteilen. Leser finden in dem Buch neue Denkanstöße, praktische Ansätze und viele Beispiele für die gesamte Tourismusarchitektur - vom klassischen Hotelbau über Shoppingcenter bis zur städtischen Fußgängerzone. Prof. Dr. Felizitas Romeiß-Stracke ist Soziologin und Stadtplanerin. Sie lehrte von 1990 bis 1999 an der Fakultät für Tourismus der Hochschule München "Destinations-Management" und seit 2001 an der Architekturfakultät der Technischen Universität München "Freizeit und Tourismuswissenschaft".

        The Tales of Beedle the Bard (Inscribed First Edition)

      London: Bloomsbury / Children's High Level Group, 2008. First trade edition. Fine. A Fine copy in the publisher's original illustrated boards. No dust jacket, as issued. Inscribed by the author "Christmas 2008 J. K. Rowling" on the page facing the copyright page. After the success of the Harry Potter series, Rowling created this spin-off work of short stories, including "The Tale of the Three Brothers" which figures prominently in the plot of "The Deathly Hallows" as well as four other short tales. The author originally created seven handwritten manuscripts in 2007 as gifts for the people associated with the series, auctioning one off for charity (it brought 1.95 million pounds). The following year it was published and released in this edition and in a deluxe edition. However, unlike previous releases, there was only one signing event for this book, at the National Library of Scotland for a group of around 200 children, ages 8 - 11, selected through a lottery.

        Miyako Ishiuchi Photographs 1976-2005: Yokosuka Story/apartment/endless Night/ To The Skin/mother's

      Amsterdam, Netherlands: Manfred Heiting/Cinubia Production(2008). First Edition / First Printing. As New in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. Unpaginated. Retrospective Exhibition Catalog, presented as an Artist Book. Limited Slipcased Edition of 100 numbered and signed copies. Should not be confused with the regular trade edition that was published simultaneously with it. There is no ISBN. The Limited Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Machiel Botman: The book is in an exquisite "Leporello" accordion format, with the images presented as doublespreads that are reproduced "back-to-back". Bookend hard board covers, one in black, the other in red, with titles on the covers, as issued. Photographs by Miyako Ishiuchi. Selected by the artist herself from "Yokosuka Story", "Apartment", "Endless Night", "", "1906 To The Skin", and "Mother's". Text by Machiel Botman. Matching red hard board slipcase with black wraparound obi-band. Printed in tritone on pristine-white, very thick uncoated stock paper in Amsterdam, The Netherlands to the highest standards. The reproduction quality as well as the book's production values are outstanding in every respect. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of her very first major European retrospective, which commenced in Prague in 2008 and travelled on to London, Paris, and Amsterdam in 2008/2009. Presents, in its sublime Limited Edition format, "Miyako Ishiuchi: Photographs 1976-2005". Eloquent images that capture, at the same time, what is tangible/concrete and intangible/abstract about objects, people, and places, and as subsumed by her one overriding concern: Memory. In the West, only Christian Boltanski and Sophie Calle come readily to mind by comparison in the way Ishiuchi evokes The Past (and the dead) in a mediated and subtle yet profoundly emotional way, revealing depths of vulnerable feeling. "She uses the camera, and all of its aesthetic potential, to investigate the intersection of the political and the personal aspects of memory" (Hasselblad Award). An absolute "must-have" title for Miyako Ishiuchi collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Miyako Ishiuchi. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible, and a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is one of only two copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: It should NOT be confused with the regular trade edition, which was published simultaneously with it. Copies of Ishiuchi's books available online command thousands of dollars because of their rarity. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with doublespread tritone plates. Miyako Ishiuchi's "Mother's" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. .

        TRUE NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL: We Turn in the Night Consumed by Fire

      Brooklyn, New York: Vice Books, 2008. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. Photography by Peter Beste. Edited by Johan Kugelberg. Introduction by Jon "Metalion" Kristiansen. First edition, #111 of 666 copies signed by Beste on a printed slip that is laid in alongside a numbered and signed photographic print and poster. Over the course of eight years, Beste traveled to Norway thirteen times to photograph the blackest of the black: apolitical and anti-Christian separatist self-preservationists. He came away with more than 200 images of both the absurd and the deadly serious, real and fake blood, church crosses and inverted ones worn as the jewelry de rigeur, all set against the country's idyllic landscape. This unprecedented photographic journey is accompanied by a black metal history timeline, from Norway's conversion to Christianity to the arrival of every classic band and landmark album; additional photographs and articles from Norway's Slayer Mag, and tabloid stories on some of the infamous events associated with the movement. Folio. Original pictorial boards; issued without a dust jacket. A fine copy in the publisher's slipcase. Accompanied by a numbered and signed poster (24" x 18") for the 2008 exhibition of Beste's work at Zune LA. Signed by Author.

        The Tales of Beedle the Bard Translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger

      London: The Children's High Level Group, 2008 First edition, first impression. Signed by the author on the sticker to the half-title, with the authentication hologram. Rowling initially began the full-length version of The Tales of Beedle the Bard shortly after finishing the seventh Harry Potter novel, in which the storybook played a major role. She wrote and illustrated six manuscript copies that were finely bound and given to people who had been important in the publication of the Harry Potter books. This edition is one of those given by J.K. Rowling herself. A seventh manuscript copy was auctioned to raise funds for her charity, The Children's High-Level Group, and broke the record for the most expensive modern literary manuscript. Disappointment from fans that the full text would not be made available prompted her to release the present "trade edition" and a "limited edition" as a Second Printing which was bound in a similar style to the copy offered for auction. These are the copies released to the public.Uncommon signed, with only six copies traced at auction.There was only one signing event for this book, at the National Library of Scotland. Two hundred children, selected through a lottery, attended the signing.
