        Photoalbum of John Minihan's private trip to New Delhi - India in January 2008. - 38 vintage photographs in colour, including two selfportraits of John Minihan. All photographs titled and explained personally by John Minihan.

      Ballydehob, John Minihan, 2008. Oblong - Octavo. 50 pages. Original Softcover (fabric). Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. From the private library of John Minihan. A stunning insight in this wonderful photographers way of seeing the world. A unique Album. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives.nnThe work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day-to-day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell.nnIn between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first.nnOver the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer".nnMinihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Beckett's winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality;nn 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.'nnMinihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing,nn 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'.nnAmong his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers (1996).nnHe is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West CorknnMinihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

        Access & Closure

      Portland, Oregon: Oregon College of Art and Craft, 2008. Portland, Oregon:: Oregon College of Art and Craft,, 2008.. Edition of 50. 4.75 x 6.75 x 1.25; 64 pages. Letterpress printed from polymer plates set in Gill Sans Light on Stonehenge paper. Leporello bound. In an edition of 50 (45 bound, 5 boxed print portfolios) plus three artist proofs. Toby Millman: "The stories in the book began during 2006, when I spent ten weeks in Palestine. During much of that time, I was living in a Melkite convent in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem, studying Arabic at Al Quds University and traveling to other areas of the West Bank. I recently returned from a longer visit, where I spent about two months in Tel Aviv and another five months in Ramallah. During this second visit, I continued my study of Arabic at Birzeit University while volunteering at a youth club at Jalazone refugee camp, writing for various cultural institutions and grassroots campaigns, and attempting to teach high school, all while collecting information to continue this body of work. "I chose to title the book after the heading on this map as a way to summarize my experience as an American in Palestine. At its most obvious level, this work chronicles the access that I had as a foreign-passport holder traveling throughout the area. I was able to travel fairly easily compared to most Palestinians, and I was able to visit areas that are closed to many of those who call this land their home. But this work is more so about the access that the people I met allowed me into their lives. Without being welcomed into homes and guided throughout the streets, I never would have been able to create this work. On the other hand, I did not have full access to the land or its people. Aside from the Israeli-imposed closures that the map refers to, I was well aware - especially during my longer visit - that I am an outsider and certain aspects of Palestinian society are still closed to me. My book speaks to this closure in some ways. Whether it's in my naivety as I try to retrieve a stolen cell phone or my inability to communicate clearly in Arabic, there were many instances where I wished that I could be a Palestinian, an insider; to fully experience both the beauty and horrors of this place. "All images were traced from original photographs or maps and the written vignettes are one hundred percent true (with a few names changed to protect the semi-innocent). The cover images have been drawn from maps produced by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs for the occupied Palestinian territories."Anton Shammas, (part of his elegant) Afterword: "These snippets and vignettes of the quotidian, these minor and low-keyed interventions on the margins of the Palestinian page, in images and in words … interpret and translate the complex Palestinian reality.

        The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

      London: The Children's High Level Group,, 2008. Translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger. With commentary by Professor Albus Dumbledore. Octavo. Original brown morocco-patterned boards, cornerpieces and centrepiece to front board of silver metal with blue faux gems, metal clasp, green silk bookmark. Housed in the embroidered velvet bag within the publisher's calf solander case with titles to the spine gilt and design to the lid blocked in blind. Illustrations throughout by the author. A fine copy of this elaborate and fantastical limited edition. First edition, limited issue. Signed by the author on the half-title, with the authentication hologram. This specially bound edition includes a portfolio of ten additional prints by Rowling that were not issued with either the trade edition or the manuscript editions. 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. 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 a trade edition and the present limited edition, bound in a similar style to the copy offered for auction. Uncommon signed: 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.

But his photographs possess the artistry to make artistic works even out of hell\" (Hasegawa).\"Arguably the post-Provoke masterpiece of Japanese photobooks, (...) The imagery is beautiful, surprising, haunting, but ultimately it is Fukase`s masterly handling of the narrative and rhythm that makes it so memorable. (...) Even though Fukase made his pictures in bad light and bad weather, never bothering with technical niceties, the results are both luminous and beautiful\" (Parr & Badger: \"The Photobook. A History\", vol. I, p. 306).\"Masahisa Fukase (25 February 1934 - 9 June 2012) was a Japanese photographer, celebrated for his work depicting his domestic life with his wife Yoko Wanibe and his regular visits to his parents` small-town photo studio in Hokkaido. He is best known for his 1986 book Karasu (Ravens or The Solitude of Ravens), which in 2010 was selected by the British Journal of Photography as the best photobook published between 1986 and 2009. Since his death in 2012 there has been a revival of interest in Fukase`s photography, with new books and exhibitions appearing that emphasize the breadth and originality of his art.\" (wikipedia).The best edition. - Dritte Ausgabe.

        BETTINA RHEIMS: THE BOOK OF OLGA - COLLECTOR'S EDITION

      Benedikt Taschen Verlag, Koln, GERMANY 2008 - 154pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English, French and German. "Olga Rodionova is a well-known beauty who moves in Moscow's fashion and jet set circles. When her adoring husband - a powerful Russian millionaire - sought to have special portraits made of his wife, he asked none other than Bettina Rheims. Rheims was captivated by Olga's unique aura and felt excited by the challenge of finding aesthetic ways of doing the portraits so that they didn't feel like run of the mill pornography.The first shoot took place in Rheims' country home and Olga's husband was so pleased with the images that he suggested they produce a book with Olga as the star. A second shoot followed, in black and white with a sado-masochistic decor and other men and women playing slightly perverse sex games with Olga. A third, Marie-Antoinette-inspired shoot took place entirely in the studio. Rheims succeeded in finding a variety of ways to depict one subject with a continuous freshness and intrigue; "The Book of Olga" is a compelling depiction of female sexuality, allure, desire, intrigue and fantasy. With over one hundred images and an introduction by French author Catherine Millet, this unique book is both a love song and a bold artistic statement". A brand new, pristine example of the 2008 first printing of the Taschen Collector's Edition limited to one thousand copies NUMBERED (XXXX) AND BOLDLY SIGNED "Bettina Rheims" in the publisher's clamshell box and unopened printed cardboard shipping carton, as issued.

        The Story of High Street

      Small 4to., original cloth lettered in silver on spine with paper label on upper board. A mint copy in slipcase. First edition. "Seventy years ago Country Life Books published High Street, a children's book of shops, featuring twenty-four exquisite lithographs by the English artist Eric Ravilious (1903-1942). Although the book was not a limited edition, the destruction of the lithographic plates during the Blitz meant that only 2000 copies were ever printed. Subsequently High Street has become one of the most highly-prized artist's books of its time This new limited edition includes not only the original shop fronts and text of High Street but also two extensive essays and an eclectic range of illustrations, preparatory drawings and sketches, many of them published for the first time. In a substantial and wide-ranging examination of the making of High Street, art historian Dr Alan Powers places the book in historical context, giving new and significant insights into its conception, production and publication. Initially Ravilious approached the Golden Cockerel Press with his 'alphabet of shops', but the book, with text by J.M. Richards, was eventually published by Noel Carrington, brother of the artist Dora Carrington and editor at Country Life Books. His enthusiasm for autolithography and children's books - he also launched the famous Puffin Picture Book series - made him the ideal publisher for High Street, although Ravilious also benefited from the invaluable support of the Curwen Press. In the second essay, writer and historian James Russell describes a quest to identify and locate each of the shops depicted by Ravilious. These twenty-four businesses were, as J. M. Richards pointed out in the foreword to the 1938 book, all real places, but in many cases we are given only tantalising clues as to their name or location. You can still buy cheese at Paxton and Whitfield, a shop that has changed little in appearance over the years, but in most other cases the quest has proved much harder. The Story of High Street traces the journey Ravilious took to create his idiosyncratic masterpiece, discovering the people he met on the way and finding out what became of the shops themselves. Ravilious created a historical document, a brightly coloured snapshot of England on the eve of World War Two, a unique portrait of a nation of shopkeepers. Exploring the fate of his twenty-four shops, The Story of High Street offers an intriguing commentary on that nation's subsequent history."

        The Temple of Flora (Limited Edition)

      Folio Society. Fine. 2008. First Folio Edition. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall Limited Edition Copy No. 325 of the Folio Society's limited edition of 600. A fine copy, presented in the original solander box, bound in buckram. Includes the commentary volume by Stephen Harris and the two 22" x 17¾" fine art prints of 'A Group of Tulips' and 'The Blue Egyptian Water-Lily' in envelope as issued. This is the first ever full-size facsimile of the greatest English florilegium. Quarter-bound in Nigerian goatskin with cloth sides. Front board printed and blocked with a design by David Eccles from 'The Night-Blowing Cereus'. 232 pp with 9 preliminary monochrome plates, 5 preliminary colour plates and 29 flower illustrations. Text printed on felt-marked Modigliani Neve paper and plates printed on Modigliani Insize. Green ribbon marker; coloured top edges. Book Size: 22½" x 18¼". Robert Thornton was the visionary creator of the finest of all English flower books, The Temple of Flora. Despite being neither an artist nor a professional botanist, he was fascinated by the rapid development in botanical knowledge of his time and inspired by the success of flower books in France. Thornton was convinced that Britain should be leading Europe in both the arts and the sciences, and wrote that he planned to create a botanical book which would be a National Honour, ‘which in Point of Magnificence is intended to exceed all other Works of a similar Nature on the ContinentÂ’. In posterityÂ’s eyes, he succeeded, although he bankrupted himself in the process. Today the plates from this near-legendary work are some of the loveliest and most popular of all flower illustrations. Although much loved as prints and frequently reproduced in books on botanical art, there has never been a full facsimile of The Temple of Flora, presenting the plates as they were originally meant to be seen - together with ThorntonÂ’s idiosyncratic and charming text. From the delicate colouring of A Group of Tulips and elegant form of The Sacred Egyptian Bean to the drama of The Night-Blowing Cereus (on which the binding design of this edition was based) and The Dragon Arum, these plates are exceptional works of art, whose value, both monetary and cultural, has steadily increased with the passage of time. A fine copy without defect other than light crease to limitation certificate. The solander box is also in fine condition with a few minor knocks to edges. Complete and in original FS packaging. Heavy/oversize set which may incur an additional postage cost. .
