        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.

      John Minihan, Ballydehob 2008 - 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. The 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. In 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. Over 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". Minihan 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; '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.' Minihan 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, 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among 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). He 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 Cork Minihan'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.

Issued with commentary volume by Stephen Harris (pp. 117). Originally issued with two additional loose prints intended for mounting, which are not present in this copy.Robert John Thornton (1768–1837) was a British physician and writer on botany. By the time of his appointment in 1796 as lecturer on medical botany at Guy's and St Thomas's hospitals, he was already he was working on his major work, the 'New Illustration of the Sexual System of Linnaeus', better known under its 1804 title of 'The Temple of Flora'. It was first advertised in 1797 and began to appear in parts from 1799, published by T. Bensley.At the heart of the 'The Temple of Flora' was Thornton's desire to produce a specifically British botanical publication of a magnificence to surpass all previous examples. He assembled teams of master engravers and colourists, including Francesco Bartolozzi, Richard Earlom, and John Landseer, who used the full range of modern printing techniques to produce coloured illustrations after paintings by such prominent artists as Sir William Beechey, James Opie, Henry Raeburn, John Russell, Abraham Pether, and his two favoured illustrators, Peter Henderson and Philip Reinagle. Illustrations in the Temple of Flora are considered to be the most overtly dramatic in the history of botany. Each plant is characterized assertively against an evocative background. The ‘Night blowing cereus’ from Jamaica, as drawn by Reinagle, is shown in a moonlit landscape of church and ‘dimpled’ river by Pether; the ‘American cowslip’ appears in front of a sea view with sailing ships, evoking travel; the ‘Egyptian bean’ assumes a geometrical air before the pyramids; while the ‘Dragon arum’ displays the ‘confusion dire’ of its phallic sexual equipment against a stormy mountainscape, appropriate for such a ‘foetid’ plant.

        Herpetofauna of Vietnam (Englisch) Gebundene Ausgabe von Van Sang Nguyen (Autor), Ho Thu Cuc (Autor), Quang Truong Nguyen (Autor), Wolfgang Böhme (Vorwort), Kraig Adler (Vorwort)

      Chimaira, 2008. 2008. Hardcover. 21,6 x 15,2 x 4,8 cm. "... Together with his coauthors, Nguyen Quang Truong modernized taxonomic concepts and nomenclature, filled gaps with new knowledge on the herpetofauna, mostly with the astonishingly perpetuating new discoveries which increased and still increase the number of species in this impressive way. The herpetological exploration of Vietnam, originally based on the classic, monographic works (1934 - 1944) of the French author Rene Bourret, was followed by a most intensive period of herpetofaunistic and taxonomic research just in the last few decades. This was carried out by Vietnamese, but also many foreign herpetologists, among them Russian, Canadian, US-American, British and last but not least German teams which often cooperated also among each other. This period of intensified research resulted in the discovery and description of numerous new species and even genera. My colleague and friend Kraig Adler, Cornell University, contributed an own and detailed chapter on this important aspect of the history of Vietnamese herpetology to the present new book. As can be seen from the extended acknowledgement section of this book, numerous colleagues from many countries were helpful and gave information, comments and/or their photographs for this comprehensive checklist of Vietnam's amphibians and reptiles. This remarkable new book reflects the high degree of international cooperation and is thus also a splendid example for other countries with a similarly rich natural heritage. I am happy that, together with the Zoological Garden of Cologne, also my institute is allowed to take part in this fruitful cooperation. Finally, it is also necessary to acknowledge the role of the Publisher. The engagement of 'Chimaira', Frankfurt am Main, in editing this book is highly appreciated as it enables - at last - the international availability of all the information on Vietnam's herpetofauna which has been gathered by the above-mentioned herpetological community. I am sure that this book will be a classic reference for many years to come." Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Böhme "...

        Rachel's Holidays

      Urbana, Illinois:: Bea Nettles,, 2008.. Edition of 3. 7.5 x 7.75 "; 32 pages including free end pages. 15 color images scanned from the original color negatives printed using an Epson 4800 printer. Printed on cotton rag paper. Housed in lightweight paper slipcase in Christmas colors. Bound in red leather with paper title on cover. Exposed stab binding with three green leather accent strips entwined horizontally. Bea Nettles, Colophon: "I printed six sets of the images in this book in 1984 using the dye transfer process. Dye transfer printing was complicated, but worth the trouble, as it was considered one of the most permanent color printing methods. The method was discontinued with the advent of digital photography. Materials for this process no longer exist." From the introduction: "This sequence draws upon the events in my daughter Rachel's life during the 'holiday' season from Halloween through Christmas in 1983. That Thanksgiving, our family traveled to Sanibel Island, Florida, a place justifiably famous for outstanding shelling. Her memories of that trip, and the events and traditions associated with the fall and winter holiday season are the basis for the images which begin and end with Rachel lost in thought in Sanibel."
